Reluctant uncle is reunited with his niece.
" Nikolai said as he ran his hand through his recently disheveled hair.
"Wait. You two know each other?" Ivy said in confusion as she hopped down from the counter.
"Of course we do. Niko and I are friends, not to mention he's your silent backer for this place." As Cole spoke he turned his head in Ivy's direction.
Ivy was stunned into silence at hearing her father's comment. Nikolai looked away from Cole at Ivy when she didn't immediately start screaming at him for being the biggest prick she has ever met.
As Nikolai looked into Ivy's eyes he watched as if in slow motion as Ivy's gold flecked brown eyes were slowly taken over by the gold, leaving her eyes an eerie catlike yellow. Just as he was about to try and explain things to Ivy he heard Cole swear under his breath and knew things were about to get ugly.
"Let me see if I've got this straight..." Started Ivy with a forced smile.
"Well, kids as much as I would love to stick around and see Niko have his skin flayed from his bones, I'm going to let you two deal with this on your own." Said Cole as he turned and walked out the door.
"Cole wait! Don't you even want an explanation?" Questioned Nikolai as he watched Cole shaking his head as he walked away. Somehow he knew that Cole leaving as quickly as he did was not a good sign.
Nikolai slowly turned back towards Ivy as the heavy feeling of guilt began to weigh him down. Facing her made it no easier for him. Ivy was like reading an open book. Her beautiful face holding every damning line that he just helped write.
"Why did you come here? Is this some kind of sick way you get off or do you not understand the meaning of silent-backer?" Fumed Ivy.
"I came here because I was curious about the little bakery that had suddenly tripled its revenues. It was never my intention to get physical with the owner of the bakery. Besides I had no idea what the owner even looked like before now." Explained Nikolai.
"So what, you thought that you would come in here and start making changes? That I would just lie down and let you fucking take over my company? No wait, you didn't expect me to lie down at all. You just put me up on the counter and waited for me to spread my legs for you. Well congratulations you almost succeeded." Ivy breathed out roughly as she finished in embarrassment.
"That was not my plan. I did come here with the some ideas that would make this place more profitable, but I never planned on touching you." Nikolai gritted out feeling more and more like an asshole.
"You arrogant self-serving son-of-a-bitc..." Nikolai moved in a blur of movement before Ivy could finish her sentence and pinned her with his hand against her mouth against the glass case behind her. "You may call me anything you like, God knows I deserve it. But, never say anything disrespectful about my mother. She is the only good thing in my life and I will not allow her good name to be tarnished." Nikolai's body shook with controlled anger as he looked down into the now frightened eyes of Ivy.
Ivy could feel every line of life hardened muscle in Nikolai's body as he crushed her against the counter. The spicy scent of his body wrapped around her senses causing her to feel as if she were drowning in him. She couldn't understand why, but this more aggressive, more animalistic side of him made her want to surrender all control to him. To give him her everything and more.
After what seemed like an eternity, Nikolai's mind slowly came back to him as he shook his head as if to help clear his mind. "I'm sorry." Were the only words he said as he lowered his forehead to hers and stared into her golden eyes.
Ivy's mouth felt parched under his hot hand and so she peeked her tongue out to lick at her lips. The action causing her lick the palm of his hand. She watched in fascination as his face tensed with immediate arousal. Ivy went to remove his hand from her mouth, when she realized he held her wrists behind her.
The feeling of being held down by this man sent a new rush of slick arousal between Ivy's legs.
