Chapter One

I followed because of the firm grip he had on my elbow and plus, I wanted to go with him. I giggled nervously. "That was a little rude."

"I couldn't help it. Is it a crime that I want you all to myself?" He winked and I grinned back at him like a love-struck idiot.

Richard led me past a gaping Shelly, out of the gym, down the long hall of the school, until we came to an open room. He pulled me inside and immediately shut the door behind us.

I hate the dark. The room was nearly black, and it was cold. "Could you please turn on the lights?"

"Are you scared?" I could hear the teasing in his tone.

"Yes. I am actually. Aren't I a big baby?" I pouted.

"No. I think everyone is scared of something. If they tell you otherwise they're full of shit." He walked over to the light switch and flicked it on. The room was suddenly filled with florescent light. Richard stalked towards me, a cool, deliberate expression in his eyes, and my body trembled with anticipation for what was to come. Did he really mean to make a move on me in this classroom?

He pulled me against him, and I squawked. "What are you doing?"

"What I wanted to do on prom night, but didn't have the nerve to do."

When he lowered his head to mine, I turned away. As much as I wanted his kiss, we hadn't seen each other in ten years. Besides the fact that he'd transformed into a major hunk and now ran a successful business, I didn't know a thing about him. Call me a prude, but I needed a little time. It was really too bad my pussy didn't agreed. It throbbed and burned for Richard's closeness.

"What's the matter, April? I thought ... I'm sorry." He let out a silent curse.

I wanted to wipe the uncertainty from his face and assure him that he wasn't the problem. "We only just met up again after many years have passed. I'm not going to lie and say I'm not attracted to you because I am. I really am, but let's slow down, okay?"

Richard hesitated for only the briefest of seconds. He raised his hand to caress my cheek. I moved my face against his calloused palm. This was the hand of a real man. I loved the way his touch felt against my skin. "You're right. I shouldn't have rushed you. I was just so happy to see you that I forgot myself."

I looked up at him, thinking I could get lost in those beautiful baby blue eyes of his. The room seemed to grow warmer but I started to shiver. Taking a look around, I remembered this class. "This was where we had physics."

A slow smile spread across his handsome face. "Yes. It's a coincidence that we ended up here because I was honestly just looking for a room so that we could be alone. Do you know, when the teacher assigned lab partners, I prayed he would pair us together, but of course you and Keely were inseparable then."

"Yes, I suppose we were. So ... tell me. What makes you scared?"

"I beg your pardon?"

"Well a few minutes ago you said everyone was scared of something and if they tell you they aren't then they're full of it. So what makes you scared?"

"Well, a lot of things scare me actually. I'm scared of feeling the way that I did when I was in high school. I'm scared of waking up and being the person that I used to be. I'm scared of walking out of this room and never seeing you again." The intensity of his stare seemed to delve into my very soul.

"Scared you won't see me again?" My voice was little more than a whisper.

He stepped closer, his body mere inches from mine. If I didn't move I feared I would jump on him or make a fool of myself somehow. It occurred to me that Richard was coming on a bit strong, but the electric current flowing between the two of us could not be denied.

"Yes. I only came to this reunion with the hopes of seeing you. Don't get me wrong, I didn't obsess over you for the past ten years, but like I said, you were on my mind. I didn't really know how I would feel when I saw you again, but now that I do, I don't want things to end tonight. I'd like to see you after the reunion."

"But ... I have a business in Manhattan. Where do you live?"

"I live in the suburbs of Philly. It's an hour and a half drive to New York from where I live. That's not very far at all, anyway, my business can be moved at any time."

"I don't want you to move your business because of me."

"Don't worry. I want to take things slow-get to know you again. I know I came on a little strong a few minutes ago, but being so close to you, inhaling the sweetness of your perfume, and hearing your soft voice wrecks havoc on my senses." The back of his fingers grazed the side of my face. I closed my eyes, leaning into his touch. It felt so right.

"I'm not talking about something so drastic right away. I just want us to see each other. Maybe we can get away for the weekends."

"That sounds great. Oh wait a minute, the weekends are the busiest time for me and my business."

"We can work out the details later. The question remains, do you want to see me, too?"

"Yes."

Richard smiled at me then. This time when he leaned over to kiss me I didn't pull back. His lips felt so warm and firm against mine. He cupped the back of my head, tilting it up towards his. "Open your mouth, sweetheart," he muttered against my lips

I opened my mouth slightly, allowing his tongue to slide in. He tasted so good-so hot. Richard's tongue explored the cavern of my mouth, taking his time tasting me. My body exploded with a burst of sizzling lust. I felt like I was on fire. My breasts tightened and my panties grew damp.

I wrapped my arms around him trying to get closer, if that was possible. Moaning against his mouth, I pressed my legs tightly together to temper some of the heat that seemed to be burning between them.

Richard lifted his head and looked at me, his light blue eyes blazing with lust and something else I couldn't quite put my finger on. Never in a million years would I have thought I'd be standing in the middle of my old physics class making out with a handsome millionaire, formally known as the geek Rick Slick. Any minute now someone would pinch me so I woke up.
