Chapter 1 - A gift from las vegas


"Hey, have you seen my earrings?" - Samantha's voice came from the bathroom of the suite I was staying in the last few days in Vegas.

It's been four days since we met, and she's been visiting me regularly.

After our first night, I got her cell phone number, and in the end, I asked her out the next afternoon, and the next, and we spent a lot of time together.

I got up, going to the half-open bathroom door, she was in front of the sink, combing her wet hair still wrapped in a towel. Sam had left her ballet class and had come to meet me before heading to work.

“The earrings are in the bedroom” I hugged her from behind, running my hands up her thighs, lifting the towel in the process “but I believe you still have some time before you leave.

“As much as I want to stay, Elle is taking us out to dinner before we go to the first show.” She turned to me.

I brought my hand to the back of her neck, pulling her face to mine. As soon as I brought our lips together, I felt her returning the kiss ardently, as it always did between us.

“I think we still have a little time,” she panted as I opened her towel, revealing her body still damp from the shower.

“That's what I thought.” I smiled, lifting her to a sitting position on the sink before retracing my path to her lips.

After a few minutes, I was lying in bed, waiting for my heartbeat to normalize once more. Samantha came out of the bathroom, this time fully dressed, and picked up the pair of earrings on the bedside table with a smile on her face.

“If you don't get dressed, I won't make it out of this room, and Elle will fire me,” she scoffed, watching me, as slipped on the earrings.

“You can call and say you're sick.” I winked at her.

The woman climbed onto the bed, snuggling close to me, resting her chin on my chest to look into my eyes.

"I never get sick, Apollo," she warned, "and you need to pack your bags, your flight is tomorrow morning, isn't it?"

"Almost dawn," I admitted, stroking her arm covered in the fabric of the white blouse she was wearing.

"Besides, you need to spend time with your cousin, it's his bachelor party," she continued after placing a quick kiss on my mouth.

"Believe me, he'll be the first to understand why I'd rather spend time in the bedroom with you than go out drinking with him and Adam." I rolled us over on the bed, getting on top of her, lifting one of her thighs so that it wrapped around my waist.

Samantha laughed, taking the momentum to spin us around again, I let her get on top before taking my hand to the back of her neck, pulling her into a kiss.

“As tempting as that offer is, and believe me, it's a lot,” she declared with her lips still touching mine, “I still need money, and this isn't going to pay my bills. You know, that's not my kind of job.

I couldn't help laughing at that comment, letting her get up next.

"Your shoes are by the chair," I warned, sitting down on the bed.

She sat down to put them on as I watched how pretty she was. It wasn't the first time I noticed it, obviously, her beauty hit me from the first time I saw her dancing in that bar, but I didn't imagine she could leave there with me. In fact, I wasn't given to that kind of situation, when I got involved with a woman, I was looking for someone with whom I saw a future and not with someone as casual as that.

“You know, it's your last night here and I imagine you want to do something fun” she tucked a lock of hair behind her ear “one of the places we're performing is really cool and you've never seen me dance. You could go.”

I considered that proposal for a moment, in fact, I've never seen her dance professionally and that might be interesting. I would just have to talk to the guys.

“ Sure.”

“I'll send you the address and time by message, but now I have to go” she approached, kissing me one last time “it was great meeting you, Theon. I've had a lot of fun the last few days.”

“I had fun too” I smiled at her “if I ever go back to Vegas…”

“You should call me” she assured “and maybe one day I decide to go skiing.”

“Sure” I couldn't help but laugh “I'll see you later.
