Juliet pulled away from him but he kept his hold tight. This was too much. Her head was swimming from what he said. “Lover is a two way street, Ares. I haven’t even said that…”
“That you love me? I felt it.”
Juliet’s heart fell. So that overpowering rush of emotion was her. It hadn’t come from him.
She gasped as he nuzzled his nose against hers. “You didn’t feel my love for you?”
Her eyes opened wide. “I felt something. I wasn’t sure what…”
She sunk into his kiss. It sent lust coursing through her ice cold veins. But something else was there. It set off butterflies in her belly.
As they broke apart he murmured to her. “I love you, Juliet. I would end the world for you.”
“Don’t. Just leave the world as it is.”
He chuckled. “If you insist.”
She ran the pad of her thumb across his bottom lip. “I love you, Ares.”
A soft growl slipped from Ares’s throat as he snapped his fingers. They were suddenly enveloped in pitch black darkness. She felt his hands between them fumbling with his clothes.
“What did you do to the light?” she questioned, her words just a breath.
“I know you’ve got a few notches on your bedpost, my love. But have you ever made love under the stars?”
“Can’t say that I…”
The black slowly melted away into a sultry twilight. The sky above was a brilliant blanket of galaxies. It has been centuries since Juliet had seen stars so bright.
Her attention was torn away from the created sky above to Ares. His fingers whipped down his chest as he unbuttoned his dress shirt. Juliet wrapped her hands around his to still him.
She gave him an evil smile as she finished with his buttons then trailed down to the zipper on his slacks. “Let me undress you.”
She felt him tremble at her touch. “As you wish."
