“Is that your way of telling me you don’t want me to see anyone else?”
“It is. It’s also my way of telling you that from here on out, I’ll be picking you up from work every day and dropping you off, too.” I placed a finger against her lips when she attempted to argue with me. “And that Sundays are to be reserved for me. I don’t care what we do so long as we do it together.”
Her eyes widened. “Umm, no, that’s not gonna happen, bossman.”
“Which part of that?” I had to work hard not to grin at her reaction. I fucking loved going head-to-head with her.
“All of it.”
“Uh, yeah, it is.”
“No.” She shook her head emphatically. “There’s no way a guy I’ve just met is gonna tell me what I can and can’t do.”
“So you’re saying that after we’ve known each other for some time, you’ll allow it?”
Her forehead scrunched her disapproval of everything I was saying. “Don’t try and twist my words.”
I grinned. “Okay, try and word it again. At which point in our relationship do you think it’d be acceptable for me to demand a few things?”
“Never!” Fuck, I was working her up. And in turn, she was working my dick up more than she already had on the way over here.
“Right, I’m glad we’ve got that settled,” I said as I moved towards her house.
She grabbed hold of my arm. “Wait. We haven’t settled anything.”
I halted my progress and looked at her. “We have. We’ve worked out that you’re gonna fight me all the way, which for the record, I’m already getting hard about.” Dipping my mouth to her ear, I added, “I’m not the type of man to give up when I want something, Hailee. And I just told you how much I want you. So fight all you want, but this relationship is going to happen, and I am going to demand things from you.”
