She was lost in the sensation of Xavier's kiss as he sucked on her lips and gave her little swipes with his tongue. The way his bristles on his face scraped lightly against her cheeks was vastly different from JC, whose soft, fine skin had caressed hers as he lapped the inside of her mouth…
Suzy moved her face away and pushed Xavier back, as he stared down at her. She hugged herself and looked up and down the sidewalk. They were all alone.
"We can't do this. I can't…," Suzy whispered and walked over to a bench near a large elm tree.
"Suzy, I won't say I'm sorry I kissed you. I can't help it. There's something between us I can't ignore."
"You're going to have to. Things are too complicated with us working together…and with me and JC—"
Suzy let out a squeak as Xavier took hold of her arm and backed her against the tree. She could barely see his face in the darkness, but could feel the heat pouring from his body. She could feel how hard he was down below.
"This can't be happening," she whispered.
Xavier cupped her face in his hands and ground his crotch against her mound. She let out a soft gasp.
"Why deny ourselves this way? I've been hard for you since the moment I first saw you in that coffee shop."
"Yeah, right. You mean after you got shot down from that gorgeous barista."
Xavier shook his head and planted his forehead against hers. Suzy took hold of his biceps for balance and took a deep breath.
"If you weren't my boss, and I wasn't with JC, maybe things would be different."
"Are you really ‘with’ him?"
"Ah…" Suzy didn't know how to answer.
"Can we just enjoy each other for a few moments?" Xavier gave Suzy another kiss.
Suzy dug her fingers into Xavier's arms as he slid his knee between her legs. She could barely think as he rubbed his knee up and down until she grew damp.
