Evangeline tried to catch her breath, as she reached into the freezer for a handful of ice. Her body felt like an inferno, as she tried to cool down from their intense lovemaking.

The cold sting of the ice turned warm as it dripped along her neck and back, cooling off the fire burning in her loins. "Damn! What is this man doing to me?" she thought remembering the explosive orgasms from John's oral invasion. " Something is definitely different about himů" Her thought dissipated at the feel of John's tongue on her lower back.

"I can't get enough of you," he whispered, slowly licking the melting ice from the small of Evangeline's back up to her shoulders. In one swift move John lifted her up on the island and began suckling the nipples of her breast, while using two fingers to enter her moist valley.

"Do it baby!" she moaned delirious from the intense pleasure between her legs. Evangeline dug her nails into his shoulders encouraging John to go deeper and faster, as her body moved to the rhythm of his fingers.

"You like that baby?" he whispered seductively.

"Yes!" she screamed reaching the height of ecstasy. Evangeline lowered herself from the island and pulled John into a passionate kiss.

"That's some kiss!" he exclaimed slowly pulling away from her embrace.

"You haven't seen anything yet," she stated pushing him down onto the kitchen chair. "Now it's my turn." Evangeline took command and straddled John, like a cowboy ready for a race to the finish.

"Oh God!" John moaned, as she guided him deeper and deeper into her valley.

"Is that good to you?" she demanded. "Are you almost there baby?"

"Hell yeah!" He was nearing the brink of his release and she knew it. "What the fuck?" he screamed feeling the cold ice in his lap.

"Not yet," she whispered looking deep into John's blue orbs. "I want us to reach the finish line together."

Screams of pleasure resonated through the kitchen as they reached the point of ecstasy together.

Evangeline watched John peacefully sleeping and wondered. " Who is this man laying next to me? "

"Why are you staring at me?" John mumbled meeting Evangeline's gaze.

"I like watching you," she replied snapping back to reality. "I was also thinking how much I will miss you, while I'm at the ABA Conference in New York."

John sat up staring intensely. "You never said anything about a conference to me. When do you have to leave? How long will you be gone?"

"What's with the interrogation?" Evangeline snapped. "I'll just be gone for a couple of days. As for not telling you, well we sort of got caught up in the passion."

"Sorry for the interrogation," John whispered. "It's just that, we haven't spent that much time together and now you're leaving."

"I'll be back in a couple of days," Evangeline repeated closely watching his reaction. "Then we can pick up where we left off."

"Sure," he said, putting on his robe. "So are you hungry?"

It happened in a blink of the eye, but Evangeline saw the change. It was no longer her imagination or John having a bad day. There was something different about John McBain and she intended to get to the bottom of it.
