A Taste of Thursday: Demon WIP continued

Taken from my current WIP- Impure bargains- scene continued from last week- you can scroll down if you want to read last weeks...


Her anger slipped and it took her a moment to regain it, reminding herself he was doing this on purpose to rattle her. Haven pulled her head back out of his grasp and crossed her arms hoping the defensive stance kept him at bay. Not that her body really want him to take it seriously and it reminded her as she took a solid step back and found her panties wet, again. Haven cleared her throat. "I'm looking for more information on my brother. Is he well?"

"As well as can be expected I suppose."

"You suppose?" Yes the anger came back full force. "You either know or you don't is my brother ok?" She glared at him.

"Yes, pet, he's fine."

"And when will he be set free?"

"I will give the same answer as before, Baal has to look him over first."

"I'm to assume his contract is with Baal, correct? Or did you take him on some other deal?"

"It is with Baal. Is this what you took me away from my pleasure for? To ask me irritating questions about your brother?"

Did he expect her to feel guilty? She didn't. "Serves you right. You take people out of all sorts of experiences. Probably kept many people from their carnal pleasures." She was proud of the snide remark and hoped it hit home.

Desiderus arched his brow. "Perhaps my carnal knowledge should be bestowed upon you pet." He made a show of sniffing the air. "I can smell and feel your desire. Your mind bucks what your body wants." His voice had taken that low octave that reached inside her and pulled out a heat she tried to suppress.

Haven backed up another step and abruptly found the wall. Damnit how did she manage to back herself there. She should have paid a lot closer attention to where she summoned the demon. Kicking herself on the inside she replied, "Perhaps your carnal knowledge will find my foot helping it to an alternative."

He laughed. "Feisty tonight aren't we?"

Haven shook it off. She needed information. Think loopholes. "I shouldn't ask this, I really shouldn't because knowing is going to kill me I just have to find out. What did my brother make a deal for? What does he have to do for Baal?" She put a slight plead to her voice, knowing full well it wouldn't sway the demon to tell her if he didn't want to, but it didn't hurt to try.


"I'll answer your question, but you have to give me something in return... for each sentence I reply." Desiderus grinned and took a step in her direction.

  2. I am with Naomi. I love the urgency, the pent up sexuality, the raw desire and feisty exchange. She is clearly no match for his conniving, manipulative machinations. He will get what he wants, at her expense, but you make him seem like an 'honorable' demon, if that is possible. I love this line...."His voice had taken that low octave that reached inside her and pulled out a heat she tried to suppress." And her foot....great line. I adore your work. xo

  5. The plot thickens. What is happening with her brother? It seems obvious what her payment is going to be.

  6. I wonder how many sentences that's going to be and if she can say stop on the way. That's the hell of a deal.
