Climbing behind the wheel, he made his way toward her apartment, and parked outside.

“I’ll be by tomorrow morning to pick you up.”

“Okay. I won’t be late.” She climbed out of the car, and he watched her round ass walk toward the door.

He was going to own that ass, and he was going to make her fall in love with him. Xavier liked a challenge, and Anya was going to be his biggest conquest yet.

Chapter Three

The following day, Anya was waiting for Xavier as he pulled up outside of her apartment building. She didn’t linger, and climbed into the passenger side.

“You’re in a rush to get to work?” he asked.

“Yes. You can’t say too much. You’re here in good time. I guess we’re both ready to go to work.”

Last night when she finally got home, she had called her mother to ask her advice. Of course, her mother thought it was strange, but if it was something she wanted to do then full support would be provided. They wanted to be grandparents long before they passed.

Their overall excitement at the prospect of being grandparents hadn’t helped her in her decision. They wanted her to have a baby. For her, she didn’t know how it would work between the two of them, Xavier and Anya. They were totally different. Where she was happy with a home cooked meal, he wanted the glorious high life, living with quality chefs. She wouldn’t want to go out every single night, nor would she want to go traveling all the time. The traveling she did with Xavier for work was more than sufficient.

Then there was the fear of what would happen if he grew bored. Would he push her to one side, only visiting their child when he liked it?


“What made you change your mind?” she asked.

“What do you mean?”

“This whole baby thing. I don’t- why me?”

“I like you.”

“You’ve liked a lot of women.”

“I’ve fucked a lot of women. Doesn’t mean I liked them.”

“Do you get off on being this hard-assed man?”

“It’s just who I am.”

“Are you happy?” she asked.

“What makes you think I’m unhappy?”

“This sudden swift decision. It makes no sense to me. One moment you’re happy sowing your wild oats, or whatever it’s called. Now you’re saying you want to have not one, but maybe two kids with me, where we live together?”

“I think it’s a sound decision. Did you talk to your parents about it? I know you’re still in touch with them, and they mean a great deal to you.”

“Yes, I talked to them.”


“And they like the idea of being grandparents. They also think you’ll be a good father.”

“See, even your parents are seeing sense.”

“They also said it had to be my idea.”

“What does that mean?” he asked.

“It means if I’m not happy sharing this … thing with you, then they’ll accept it.”

“Why wouldn’t you be happy?”

She turned toward him, and glared. “Yesterday I was a mere employee. Now I’m the future prospective mother for your children? A woman I know you’ve slept with was there yesterday talking to everyone. She would gloat about how you were so in love with her, and intended to marry her.”

“That I didn’t know.”

“No? She would tell everyone who would listen how hot you were for her, and now you’re telling me you want me. Not only do you want me as a mother, you want to do it with sex. What if we get to the bedroom, and you don’t find me attractive? How the hell am I going to live with that?”

“That wouldn’t happen.”

“You don’t know that.”

“Actually, I do.” He pulled into the parking lot of his building. Her car was still there, and so were several other cars. She did her best to ignore them. “I know I’m attracted to you. I loved our kiss, and I want to do it again. I watch you walk away because I love your ass. Your tits are more than a generous handful.”

“You are really crossing that line.”

“That line was already crossed, and I’m not going to uncross it.” He took hold of her hand. “I’m being serious about this. This isn’t a decision that I’m going to change tomorrow, or when I get bored. I’m in this for life, and while you’re thinking about it, I want you to consider that. I won’t push you away. I won’t find another woman.”
