Hi everyone!! I decided to post chapter 15 today, since this will be the turning point in the Riana, Shawn, and Marcus triangle. After you read this chapter, let me know what you think and whether you like what’s going on so far in this story or how the relationships are in the published stories (because you know this would never happen in the current stories)! Also, I will be doing another page on the site that will have all of the chapters from books 1 & 2; that way, everyone will have better access to finding the chapters. That will be posted soon.
Once her class was over, Riana went back to her apartment. She didn’t know what to do with Marcus’ request. She wondered should she see him or just let things go.
She paced in the living room, looking at the wall clock and sighed. If she was going to do it, she should leave now. A part of her was telling her to sit down, watch TV, do anything to not walk out of that door; but a part of her wanted to leave. She wanted to see Marcus.
“What is wrong with me?” she asked.
She stared at a picture of her and Shawn that was sitting on the counter. She went to it and picked it up. They looked so happy together; the way he was holding her; the smile the two had made her feel horrible; but she couldn’t deny it anymore. What she was about to do will hurt everyone, but she couldn’t stay away from Marcus. She didn’t want to try anymore.
She began to wipe the tears that were going down her cheeks.
“I’m so sorry.” she said, putting the picture back on the counter. She picked up her purse and went to the door.
*** Fifteen minutes later and she was sitting in the parking lot of Shawn and Marcus’ apartment. Her hands gripped the steering wheel, realizing what she was about to do. She took a deep breath and opened the door. She slowly walked to the door, wiping her sweaty hands onto her skirt. She didn’t know if she should knock on the door. She was about to turn around, but something in her told her to knock.
The door opened and Marcus stared at her.
“I didn’t think you were going to show.”
“I wasn’t going to.”
He stared at her as she walked in. He closed the door, wondering if this was a big mistake. He knew it was, but just looking at her now made the guilty thoughts he had disappeared.
“I know I’m risking everything to be here.” she said. She was staring at the wall when Marcus approached her. He put his hands around her waist, which made her deeply sigh.
“I wanted to stay away from you, but I can’t.” she said.
“We all have choices we have to make. If you don’t want to be here, then please say so.”
“I wouldn’t have come if I didn’t want to be here.”
Her back was still to him as he bent down to kiss her neck. She closed her eyes, realizing this was about to happen. She didn’t come there to talk. She wanted Marcus and she couldn’t stop thinking about how things would be with him. He invaded her thoughts too much now, and she needed to let go of those feelings she’s been experiencing.
“So why are you here?”
“You asked me to come to talk.” she said softly.
He went to her ear, giving her a slight kiss.
“We both know we don’t want to talk. Maybe we will afterwards.”
His hand was going up her thigh, reaching to her panties. She sighed again, wanting him to touch her so bad; she didn’t know how much more she could wait.
He kissed her neck while touching her clit, making her lean her back against him. She pushed his hand away, turning toward him and roughly kissed him. She grabbed his hand and headed to his bedroom.
“You sure you want to do this?” Marcus asked.
Riana nodded. She pulled off his shirt, throwing it on the floor.
“I’m sure.” she said.
Marcus reached behind her and slowly pulled down the zipper to her dress. She watched as he undressed her. A twinge of excitement was going through her as he stared at her.
“Beautiful.” he said, looking at her body in awe.
She put a hand down his chest, feeling his skin between her fingertips. There were so many similarities between him and Shawn it was surreal. She looked into his eyes, wanting him to take her right then and there.
She walked over to the bed and lay down.
Marcus knew he was stepping into dangerous territory. Once they do give in, there won’t be no turning back. This is something they would have to live with for the rest of their lives.
He walked over to her. He lay down beside her.
“Are you completely sure?” he asked.
“Yes.” she said.
She kissed him and he gently lay on her. The two continued to undress each other, when Marcus began kissing her stomach. He slid down to her clit. He touched her again, wanting nothing more to bury himself inside of her. She was nice and wet, just like he liked it.
“I have to taste you.” he said, quickly going to her clit. Once his tongue was inside of her, Riana couldn’t do anything more but moan. The way he was going in on her had her wanting to scream his name repeatedly. Even Shawn didn’t make her feel this way, which made the guilt she had earlier reappeared.
His tongue flickered between her lips, which had her shaking. Her legs moved with his tongue, releasing all of the pleasure she could mustered. Now that she had experienced that, she didn’t know if she would be able to not be around him again.
Marcus went up to her, kissing her breasts before staring at her.
“I bet my brother never had you screaming like that, has he?”
Damn, Riana thought. This was getting a little too crazy right now. Instead of her saying anything, she gave a tiny whimper. She doesn’t know why he would bring up Shawn right now, but at that point, she didn’t care.
He went to his nightstand drawer and pulled out a condom. Riana swallowed the lump that was rising in her throat as she watched him put it on. She was excited and nervous at the same time. The only person she’s been with was Shawn, so she didn’t know what to expect with Marcus.
She spread her legs wide to invite him in. He grabbed them as he went in, causing Riana to gasp. She grabbed ahold of his shoulders, feeling all of him inside of her.
The look in his eyes made her even more excited. He supplied kisses from her neck to her chest as he explored his way in her. She dug her nails into his skin, which caused him to moan.
“Marcus.” she moaned.
“Keep saying my name, baby.” he said.
She began to unravel as he continued to move in her. Her body was experiencing multiple orgasms, something else Shawn has never done to her.
“Shit!” Marcus yelled while climaxing.
The two stared at each other. The damage has been done now. They broke every type of rule possible and now they have to live with the consequences. Riana touched Marcus’ cheek, realizing she wanted to do it again with him. If she had the chance, she would want to endure what she just experience as much as she could.
A loud sound escalated from the living room. Riana stared at the bedroom door to Marcus in a state of shock.
“It can’t be.”
They heard footsteps down the hall, which meant one thing.
“You have to hide.” Marcus said.
“He can’t catch you here.”
“My car is parked outside.” Riana whispered.
“Just go in the bathroom. I’ll take care of the rest.”
Riana quickly got up and went to the bathroom. She closed the door, not turning on the light in case Shawn got suspicious.
Marcus quickly put on his jeans and turned the ceiling fan on. He saw his shirt and threw it on the armchair by the bed.
Shawn opened the door and stared at his brother.
“Hey.” he said.
“Hey. I thought you were going to be at the station late?”
“Steve let me leave early.”
“Oh. So, what’s up?” Marcus asked, sitting down on the bed. He noticed Riana’s dress was on the other side of the bed. He slowly went to it and kicked it with the back of his foot underneath the bed.
“Nothing. Just seeing if you had to work today. I thought we could hang out.”
“I actually do tonight. Have a stakeout I need to do.”
“Oh okay. Can I ask you something though?”
Marcus glanced at him, hoping he can answer his question so he could leave.
“Is something going on with you and Ri?”
Marcus gave a strange look at Shawn.
“Why would you think that? She’s your girl, so I wouldn’t push my way on her.”
“Really? Because I heard something quite different.”
“I don’t know what you heard, but I would never pursue your girl. We made a vow, remember.”
“Things may have changed.”
“Who told you this?”
“That’s not a concern. Now, we may not have been honest with each other on some things, but when it came to relationships, we’ve always been straightforward; so I need to know if something is going on.”
“Don’t you think you need to ask Riana this?”
“She’s not here, so I’m asking you.”
“I assure you, nothing is going on.”
Shawn nodded and sighed.
“Okay, that’s all I needed to know. But if something is and you lied about it, brother or not, don’t think I won’t hesitate in beating your ass.” he said.
Marcus looked at Shawn as he left the room. He went out of the door, closing it, which Marcus quickly had to sit down. He took a deep breath, knowing that Shawn would not go back on his word if he did find out.
Riana opened the bathroom door and walked over at Marcus.
“Are you okay?”
He looked at the door and sighed.
*** Shawn walked to his car and opened the door. He got in, staring at his apartment and hit the steering wheel. He dug into his pocket and pulled out Riana’s charm bracelet. He stared at it, completely in shock with everything. He found the bracelet near Marcus’ room, which only meant one thing.
He gave the bracelet to her after going to her apartment the other day. He knew she was feeling down lately and wanted to cheer her up in some way. After he revealed the gift, she started crying, saying she didn’t deserve it. Now, he had to agree with her.
Since he hasn’t been at the apartment for a couple of days, he knew Riana didn’t have a reason to be there, so he knew she was there recently. With all the doubts and feelings he was having, he was trying not to let things get to him; but now, he realized that what Dominique said was probably true. She and Marcus were going behind his back, doing who knows what without him knowing about it.
He sighed, still looking at the apartment door. He shook his head, trying hard not to break down. He couldn’t believe two of the most important people in his life would do this to him. He couldn’t believe they would be this way and not think they would get caught.
The sadness he had was quickly turning to anger. He could go back in and beat his brother’s ass for hurting him, but he’s not going to do it. There’s a time and a place for when he’s going to do it, and right now wasn’t it.
I’ll let the both of them make it for right now, but once the time is right, I will reveal to everyone the dirt they’ve been doing.
