Javier felt the smoothness of Ruby's hair beneath his finger tips, it looked like fire. It looked even more like fire in abundance as it lay in chaos on the pillow. His other hand selfishly swept the length and breadth of her, he was so overwhelmed by how soft her skin was, that she felt like a China doll in his care. He closed his eyes as he kissed her, their tongues caught in a ritual dance. God, he couldn't get enough of her. The taste, the smell of her-was pure intoxication, he could stay like this forever. His mouth trailed kisses down the column of her exquisite neck, to the globes of her breasts and noticed her puckered rose coloured nipples standing to attention. He caught one in his mouth and suckled it, using his free hand to knead the other nipple between his thumb and finger. He heard her gasp of pleasure and trailed his hand further down.
"You're beautiful Ruby," he said, barely a whisper.
His hands raked down the softness of her stomach and reached the apex of her thighs, his fingers touching the soft curls and felt the heat emanating from that one sacred place. He caressed her clitoris and felt her arching towards him with want and desperate need. He moved further down the bed, moved her legs further apart and moved to her folds, where he kissed, suckled and caressed her with his tongue. Her moans of esctasy errupted, as she moaned his name.
"Javier, I want you... I want you now," she demanded, "I want you inside me now!"
Javier sheathed himself and thrust into her, her wish was his command but he paused in mid thrust and looked down at her with shock as he saw her eyes widen, "You're a virgin!"
"I was," she said shyly.
"Why didn't you tell me?" he demanded in a barely there whisper.
"Because I didn't want this reaction," she said, "Let's not make my first experience be a downer now Javier, I want you, you want me... just make love to me, okay?"
Those were the last words that were spoken between them, as Javier continued to make love to her, they both reached their momentous peak. As Javier laid back down beside her on the bed, he looked over towards her and noticed her staring straight at him. She didn't say a thing and that worried him.
"Are you okay? Did I hurt you?" he asked, cupping the side of her face.
"No, no... you didn't... I just... I..." she could barely get her words out.
"What's the matter?" Javier asked as he sat up and she too sat up, wrapping the duvet around her.
"I think I know who abducted me Javier..." she said blankly. The colour draining from her face, "I think I know who it is."
"Who is it?" Javier asked, his hand stroking her face.
"It's..." Ruby began but the sound of Javier's mobile phone cut in.
He picked up the phone to his mother speaking frantic Italian, something about a fire and someone missing. He spoke back and got out of bed, "There's a fire at my family's restaurant and I have to get down there."
"I'll come with you," Ruby said, getting out of bed. Javier watched as she began putting on clothes but it would be unsafe for her to accompany him, he would be so occupied with the family situation, he wouldn't be able to keep an eye on her, let alone protect her properly.
He kissed her and she paused with putting on her camisole top, "Rubes, not that I don't want you with me but you'd be safer here than out on the field with me. Everyone is pretty frantic at the moment, the last thing I want to do is to put you in that situation. I'll check in with you every hour, make sure..."
Ruby was hurt, she felt more apart of Javier Romano's family then she had ever felt apart of, then hers. Of course she wanted to help, she wanted nothing more then to help but he was treating her like she was incapable of taking care of herself, "Honestly Javier, I can be a great help to your family."
"Yes, but if something were to ever happen to you, I wouldn't be able to forgive myself Rubes... that's why I want you to stay here."
"What use can I be here, when I can be with your family?"
"Look, I'm wasting time having this conversation with you, I have to go. Lock the doors and don't open the doors to anyone. Y'know the security codes and if you need to go out, at least tell Ryker and he'll be here in an instant to escort you."
"I'm not a child Javier, so stop treating me like one..." Ruby said, turning on her heel towards the kitchen.
"I know that, otherwise I wouldn't have just made love to you..." Javier said, "Look Ruby, I really don't want to argue with you right now..."
"We're not arguing Javier... I believe you were on your way out," she said matter of factly.
"Ruby..." Javier began.
"Just go, your family need you..." and then a few moments later she heard the front door close behind him. She walked to the kitchen and put the kettle on the stove, she was dressed in jeans and a camisole and she'd just put her hair in a ponytail. Again, she felt like she hardly belonged anywhere... she had just lost her virginity to a man, she was falling passionately in love with and when she was feeling complete, it was being discarded in shreds again. He didn't trust her enough to be with his family, she was a big girl and she could take care of herself. She didn't want him to use a pathetic excuse like, she would be in the way of him doing anything. She heard the front door open and without hesitation, she said, "Did you forget something?" And when she spun around, to her shock there were two men standing in front of her.
"How did you get in here?" she said, trying to calm herself down.
"Did you not learn anything from our last tutorial Ruby," the man came towards her, he was holding fencing wire in his hand and was grappling it like he was going to tie her up.
"I'm going to scream," Ruby threatened.
"And what? Your bodyguard boyfriend is going to come to your rescue... well we've taken care of him for a few hours," spoke the lanky man who was edging towards her.
Ruby moved towards the stove, "You deliberately started the fire, didn't you?"
"Well, we had to get your boyfriend out of the way, so we could finish off what we started... rich girls like you don't deserve second chances."
Ruby didn't hesistate, she grabbed the kettle and flung it towards the hefty man with the fencing wire, the metal hitting his face and he stumbled onto the table with it's contents hitting the floor with a bash. The lanky man threw himself towards her, but she prevented her fall by throwing the hot water on him and heard him yelling in pain. His skin had turned flame red and saw bits of it peeling away. She stepped over him and ran out of the kitchen, only to fall head first to the foor, the man she had butted with the kettle had caught hold of her ankle and wouldn't let go. She turned around and as hard as she could manage, kicked him in the head and she did it again and he eventually let her ankle go. She staggered to her feet and bolted for the door. She could still hear them keeling in pain in the kitchen. Shutting the door, she pinned the security code in, locking them in. In her escape, she forgot the car keys... she would have to make her way out on foot. She started running towards the main road, where she could start to blend in with the locals. She didn't know where Javier's parents' restaurant was located, but she didn't want to risk going to the family house in case Christopher and Felix followed her there. She had to get somewhere, without risk of being discovered and she knew only one place. One place that no one could get to her. She doubled her speed and started running faster.
