Evangeline lightly brushed her hand across John’s cheek. She looked at him above her and thought to herself silently. He was the most amazing lover she’d ever had. He’d taken her to heights and horizons she didn’t even know were physically possible. John had also taken her to the point of no return. She knew things wouldn’t be the same between them and wondered how he felt about that. Evangeline smiled at John and began sensually tracing the outline of the tattoo on his left shoulder. Goodness, he was so sexy!

John smiled back at Evangeline. His manhood began to stir while still surrounded by Evangeline’s soft center. He flexed deep inside of her. He felt Evangeline get a strong grip on his shoulders. Evangeline let out a groan, willing him to go deeper.

"Are you okay? Did I hurt you?" John asked concerned. He looked into her eyes and removed himself.

Evangeline caught her breath and then allowed a blissful smile to cover her face. "No…not at all," she said. She was lying on her back completely satisfied. "You feel so good."

"I was just thinking how I could stay inside you all night," John said with a smile, moving over to the other side of her.

"Wow…That was so…unexpected," Evangeline said looking up at the ceiling.

"Yeah, tell me about it," John began. "We were just supposed to be having dinner," he said with a small laugh as he played with a strand of Evangeline’s hair.

"So what do we do now?" Evangeline asked, turning on her side to look at John.

John looked at Evangeline for a moment before responding. He admired her physical and inner beauty. Giving her a smile and rubbing his index finger down Evangeline’s arm, he asked sincerely, "What do you want to do?"

Evangeline looked at John. She knew in her heart what she wanted to do and hoped he’d feel the same. She didn’t want to pressure him though.

"John…" she began. "I…" she didn’t exactly know how to say what she wanted. The words didn’t seem to come out.

"Evangeline," John said interrupting. He took her hand. "I want you to know that that I have absolutely no regrets about what just happened."

"That’s good to know because I don’t regret anything either," Evangeline stated with a smile. Maybe they were on the same page after all.

John slowly ran a finger down Evangeline’s cheek. He looked at her with such love in his eyes. That’s not to say that he was in love with her…not yet anyway. But he could certainly see himself falling for her.

"To be completely honest with you Evangeline, I would like to get to know you better. I know we both lost control tonight, and while I have no regrets about what happened, I’d like to take things slower. Is that okay with you?"

Defense mechanism immediately set in. "John, that’s fine with me. I don’t want you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. No pressure," she said feeling silly. She must’ve been crazy to think that John would automatically want a relationship just because they made amazing love together. She attempted to get out of her bed. She felt embarrassed.

"Evangeline, where are you going?" John asked confused, grabbing her arm.

"Hey John, it’s no big deal. It was fun, right? No commitment required, no strings attached."

"Evangeline, I think you misunderstood what I meant."

"No, I think I heard you loud and clear."

"No you didn’t Evangeline. I said I wanted to take things slower, not end things."

Evangeline shook her head, amused with herself. She wanted John so much more than she ever admitted to herself.

"Evangeline," John began, taking her hand and pulling her back to bed. "You’re such a wonderful person. I just want to give you what you deserve. You know…real dates, flowers, dinner and dancing. I don’t want you to think that it was only sex. Don’t get me wrong, the sex was wonderful. But it should be more. I want it to be more," John said with deepest sincerity.

Evangeline smiled. It was such a relief to hear him say that. "Then we’ll take it slow," she said with peace of mind.

Evangeline and John talked for hours in bed. Getting to know each other proved to be quite fun. They both learned so much about each other, and realized there was plenty they already knew.

They talked so much until Evangeline dosed off. Her head rested comfortably on John’s well-sculpted chest. He had his arm around her as he watched her sleep. She was even beautiful while she slept. He was certainly looking forward to learning all he could about Ms. Williamson. She was definitely the kind of woman he’d always wanted. Now she was right there with him…

Evangeline woke up the next morning and looked around her room. She instantly began smiling. It wasn’t a dream. Last night happened and John was still there beside her. His hand rested on her hip and she had her arm around his waist. They must have stayed that way the entire time they slept. It was actually the best sleep Evangeline had in weeks.

She felt so comfortable in John’s arms. They’d talked about taking things slowly and that was fine with her. She was looking forward to spending more time with the Lieutenant. Evangeline didn’t want to get too far ahead of herself, but she could really get used to waking up every morning next to that beautiful man.

Evangeline looked up at John. He was sleeping so serenely. Everything about him was calm. Evangeline studied him as if she wanted to memorize everything about this moment.

She couldn’t help but grin because she wanted to touch him so badly. She didn’t want to disturb his sleep though.

John sleepily awoke. He noticed Evangeline smiling at him. "What? Was I snoring?"

"No…not at all. I was just admiring the sleeping Adonis."

John laughed. "I’m not much of an Adonis in the morning. But you, on the other hand, are a true sleeping beauty."

Evangeline smiled. "Last night was so incredibly amazing, John."

"Yeah, it was pretty special, wasn’t it?" John responded with a reflective smile beaming across his face.

Evangeline couldn’t control herself. Even though she was lying on his chest, she still didn’t feel close enough to him. She let her hand travel down the length of John’s body. She began sensually massaging his crotch. His member instantly stood at attention. John pulled Evangeline into a fervent kiss that was urgent with need and desire.

Just when it looked like they were going for round two in the bed, Evangeline’s phone rang. They both tried to ignore it, but after the forth ring Evangeline decided to answer.

"Hello?" Evangeline answered in an annoyed tone.

"Hey! You weren’t sleeping were you?"

"No Greenlee, I wasn’t."

"Good! Okay, I want details! What happened last night? Did John come over? Don’t leave anything out!"

"Greenlee," Evangeline began with a smile, as John was now rubbing his hands all over her body and lightly kissing her neck. "It’s ahh…It’s really not a good time."

"Why not? Oh come on Van! Just tell me, did he come over for dinner?"

Evangeline was trying hard to concentrate on what Greenlee was saying, but her full attention was directed towards John. He was incredible!

"Yes Greenlee, dinner happened. I promise I will call you back later on. Okay?"


"She’ll call you back Greenlee. She promises…," John said raising his voice so he could be heard by Greenlee, continuing with the seductive kisses on Evangeline’s neck.

"Oh my God! John’s there? He’s with you this morning!" Greenlee began, beaming through the phone.

"Yeah…I gotta go," Evangeline said while looking at John. She was smiling ear to ear, biting her bottom lip. John smiled back, the look of seduction still in his eyes.

"Okay, bye!" Greenlee said with such a quickness and loads of enthusiasm.

Evangeline hung up her phone. She pulled John down on top of her. So much for taking things slowly. Round two was now in full effect. John and Evangeline shared a mutual attraction and connection that couldn’t be denied, nor could it be slowed down. Together they’d experienced heights they didn’t even know were possible. Who knew the point of no return could be so promising!
