“So, Ms. Sparks, tell me a little about yourself?” Michael asked, leaning casually against the back of the sofa. “Would you like something to drink?” Before she could answer, he was up and pressing a button on the desk, and there was a knock on the door. “Come,” he replied to the knock. When the receptionist opened the door a crack, he barked, “Dorothy, we require tea and sandwiches. That’s all,” then he turned back to Katryna and walked back to the sofa.
Kat was a little shocked at the abrupt way he handled the receptionist, but maybe she was used to his ways. He had a reputation as a very fair and generous employer. Maybe that made up for his attitude.
Michael noticed Kat’s expression. “Are you shocked at the way I treated her?”
Oh shit. “You seemed rather abrupt, but it’s not my place to judge.” Kat thought that sounded fairly diplomatic.
“You’re right, it’s not. Do you think you can tolerate my attitude if you take this job? You need to be thick-skinned. I don’t pander to anyone and won’t. I don’t have time for nice and polite. Nice and polite didn’t get me where I am today and it won’t keep me there tomorrow. The business world is ruthless, and you have to be ruthless to survive in it. Can you handle that, Ms. Sparks?” Michael stared intently into her eyes as if he wanted to watch her break.
Kat took a deep breath. “I can handle anything you throw at me, Mr. Thorpe.” Brave words, but could she really be what he needed in an assistant?
He stared at her for a few uncomfortable minutes longer and nodded. “We’ll see, Ms. Sparks. We shall see. What do you know about MTK?”
Katryna was glad she had taken the time to do some research before the interview. She knew the answer. “MTK is a conglomerate of several smaller firms. They are involved mostly in the security business. There is a subdivision devoted to the installation and monitoring of security systems including professional and personal security. MTK does the security for several large businesses. I’ve also heard that you provide private guards for events and individuals when needed. MTK is also very interested in the Kodiak bear and has a large foundation for their protection and a refuge here on the island.”
“You’ve done your homework, very nice. There are a few aspects of the business you are unaware of, but that can be remedied.”
There was a knock at the door, and Dorothy entered pulling a cart behind her. She efficiently and quickly moved a small table to sit in front of them, then unloaded the cart onto the table. There were finger sandwiches and several varieties of small, bite-sized appetizers. She looked to Michael, and at his nod, left the room.
“If you would be so kind as to pour, Ms. Sparks?” he asked, nodding toward the tea. Dorothy had set cups in front of them both and left the teapot in Katrina’s reach. She scooted forward enough to reach the pot to serve, hiking her skirt up to mid-thigh in the process, a fact she didn’t notice until she reached to hand Michael his cup.
The smirk on his face alerted her to the fact that something was different and she quickly glanced down. “Oh, excuse me!” she said when she realized how much skin she was exposing and quickly stood to straighten herself out.
“I enjoyed the view,” Michael said with a grin on his face. “That wasn’t a sexist comment, Ms. Sparks. It was a truthful one.” Katryna blushed and took a sip of her tea. It really was a compliment to be noticed by a man like Michael Thorpe. She could open any number of magazines and find pictures of him with some of the most beautiful women on the planet. The man was seldom seen with any woman more than once or twice. Rumor was, he slept with someone different every night.
“I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors, but you will find that I’m a very discerning man with singular tastes. Tastes others would misinterpret if the word were to get out.”
Now he had her curious as to what he was into. Katryna wasn’t totally innocent. She knew what people did behind closed doors was their business and there were as many variations of sex as there were people. She tried not to be shocked by anything she read or heard. Not knowing how she was supposed to respond to that statement, she busied herself, placing some finger foods on one of the small plates and offering it to him. She didn’t know what he liked, so she placed one of each item on the plate.
Michael took the plate from her and nodded. “Does that statement shock you, Ms. Sparks?”
“Please, call me Katryna. No, I’m not shocked. What people do in private is their own business.” She took a small bite of the stuffed mushroom on her plate and relaxed back against the couch. “I like to think I’m open-minded.” She wasn’t sure this was a topic for a job interview, but wasn’t sure how to not answer politely. She would try to keep her answers short and to the point without revealing too much.
“I’m sure you’ve heard all the gossip about me. Will you let that affect your job performance, Katryna?”
“No, Michael. I don’t read the gossip columns and have been so busy with school and moving back to the island that I don’t have time to scroll the internet looking for dirt about people I don’t know.” Although now she wished she would have done a little searching on Michael Thorpe. She could have at least paid more attention when Safia was telling her about him. He had her curious about what was being said now. Rumors had to start somewhere, and there was usually a thread of truth in them.
“Make sure you do your homework before you take this job. I want you to be informed before you begin here. The last girl wasn’t and I put a lot of time and wasted effort in with her. I won’t repeat that mistake. If you can’t handle this, tell me now.”
“Michael, Mr. Thorpe, if I am offered this positon I will put my best effort into it just like everything I do. I don’t do things halfway and don’t plan on giving you anything less than my best.”
Michael stared intently at Katryna as if he could read her just by staring at her. “Feel free to finish eating, but I believe we are done here. I have other candidates to see this afternoon and tomorrow before I return to the mainland. Someone will be in touch.” Before he finished talking, he was standing and walking to his desk, leaving Katryna to see her way out.
Katryna felt the slight pinch of him sucking on her skin. “Was that it? Are we mated?”
“Not yet, beautiful girl. You will know when I place my mark. Relax. I promise it won’t hurt.” Michael couldn’t help but smile to himself. Katryna was so nervous, he thought he should take her and get it over with, but he didn’t want that for either of them. Their first time together should be enjoyable, something to remember, not a wham, bam experience which it would be if he didn’t hold himself in check.
He licked the spot once more before kissing his way to her pink-tipped nipples. After licking and sucking each nipple, he worked his way down to the apex of her thighs, spreading them and gazing at her perfection. “Has anyone ever looked on you here before, Katryna?”
Katryna’s answer was soft and breathy, “Only my gynecologist—no one else.” The two guys she had been with before barely touched her, let alone did any foreplay. A few fumbles in the dark, some wet kisses, and it was over before she realized what had happened. She knew it wouldn’t be that way with Michael.
“Good. I want to be the only man to see you. Tell me your doctor is female,” he commanded in a husky, deep voice.
“Yes, she is. I couldn’t stand the thought of going to a male doctor,” Katryna answered. Did they have to talk about this now, she thought. She didn’t want her mind on her doctor or the exam.
“We will talk more about this later. We will talk about a lot of things later. Now I need to taste this pretty pussy.” Michael buried his face in her skin, rubbing his face against the soft hair on her mound. “I love this, and it’s very pretty, but we will be removing it. I like my women bare.” He spread her folds and buried his face in them, licking and sucking her clit and pussy lips. He held her open with his thumbs, licking from just above her round hole to her clit. He lapped at her cream, getting all he could. “Katryna, I want you to come for me. Come for me while I eat your pussy.” He started rubbing her clit while he licked at her, and soon she was soaring.
It was nothing like the orgasms she gave herself. They were small blips on the radar compared to this. This was a huge storm that had her entire body trembling and shaking.
She felt Michael lapping at her cream as the orgasm rolled over her and she started to come again, fisting her hands in his hair to hold his head in place. “Yes, baby. That’s it,” he murmured against her, slowly lifting from her. He leaned over her, watching her face as the spasms continued and the energy released from her body.
“Oh my God. I’ve never…not like that. I didn’t know…” Katryna was almost incoherent. “I didn’t know it could be like that.” She looked up into his grey-blue eyes.
“It will only get better from here, baby. That was just the beginning. There is so much to teach you and show you. I can’t wait to play with this body and show you all my toys and the games we will play. Now come again for me, Katryna.” He put a touch of command in his voice to see how she would respond.
Katryna wasn’t sure what he meant by games, but she didn’t think he was talking about his Xbox. She was pretty sure he meant adult games. Games she had never played before.
Michael lifted his head and watched Katryna explode. He watched the flush that began at her cheeks and spread it’s way down over both her breasts. Her nipples were already peaked, but they seemed to become even harder. The flush crossed her mound and spread across her pussy lips. Her clit jutted out even further while her cunt and asshole spasmed, wanted to be filled. The fact that she came on his command pleased him. Many experienced submissives didn’t respond the way she did. He was right about her. She would be perfect for him. Katryna didn’t know it yet, but she was more than his mate. She was his sub, his wife, his heart.
He quickly put the condom on and slid his cock through her folds, using her juices to ease his entrance into her cunt. “Relax, baby.” Michael knew he was a large man and wasn’t sure how much experience she had or how recent it was.
He fit himself to her and slowly started pushing into her warmth. Her pussy was so tight, tighter than anything he had ever felt.
He held her a few seconds, giving her a chance to become accustomed to his size and the sensations she was feeling. When he saw her relaxing, he took her mouth again and slowly pushed farther inside her. He gave her time between thrusts to accept him. He was not a small man, and he wanted their first experience together to be the best he could make it. He slowly advanced until he was buried to the hilt and held himself still. He leaned on his arms above her and looked down into her light brown eyes, the color was almost golden, and watched as she took him. He held still as long as he could stand it. “I have to move, Katryna. Wrap your arms around me and hold on.”
