ExcerptThe Book of Adam – Hypnotic by Iris Bolling
"Allow is such a speculative term. Have you ever heard of doing something then asking permission later?"
"No. I have always been told you ask permission first."
"You must live a very sheltered life." Adam smiled. "Where is the adventure? Living that way makes a person so predictable people know exactly what to expect before you even do it. I find that life is more interesting when people have no idea what you might do next."
"Living life that way puts your world in turmoil. There are no controls, no accountability, no limits."
"Why should there be limits? Each day God gives us a day to find our purpose for being on this earth. I say we should live it to the fullest. As the old adage says tomorrow is not promised. Go for the gusto while you can."
"That is an immature way of looking at things." Amber sobered. "There has to be structure in a person's life. And while you say it's being predictable to live within one’s limits, I find it being dependable. People know what to expect from you. It's clear that you can be counted on when needed."
"You're a military brat, aren't you?" Adam frowned.
Amber's defenses rose. "Yes, I am and very proud of it."
Adam suddenly came to attention; he saluted her with his hand. "Yes, ma'am," he laughed. "I bet you have a daily regimen, don't you? Get up at six in the morning. Dressed and showered by 6:30, breakfast by seven, in the office precisely at 7:30. Am I right?"
For a moment, the routine Amber always looked at as a good quality suddenly felt dirty. She should get off the subject. "I get up at 5:30, dress, take a run and I am back home by six. I shower, get dressed for work and I am out of the house at my office no later than 7:30." She frowned. "You make it sound like being dependable is a dirty or bad thing. I look at it as being an adult. Allow me to correct that - a responsible adult."
Adam leaned back against the counter top, folded his arms then tilted his head to stare at her. "Where is the time for your man to make love to you in the morning so that you are full of energy and awareness of your sexuality each day?" He took a step towards her. "What about lunch time when your man has an unquenchable desire to hear you scream his name in the middle of the day?" He took another step towards her. "What about at night when dinner is on the table, the candles are lit and the dessert your man wants is between your legs rather than on the plate? When does your way of living allow for a gentle kiss that leads to hours upon hours of sexual satisfaction? Do you have time in your schedule for that? Or does that have to be timed and placed on a schedule as well?" He stood a mere breath away from her. "Where is the spontaneity, the building fire, the lingering desire, you know the normal reactions between a man and woman?"
Amber was visibly flustered by his words. Her breathing increased, her eyes widened, beads of perspiration formed right above her lips as if a flame had just been struck under them. She stepped back until her desk blocked her escape. Slowly her eyes rose to meet his. They really were beautiful. Or can a man's eyes be classified as beautiful, she thought. And his lips, they were thick, smooth, suckable lips. And they had the nerve to be calling out to her. As if on command, her tongue involuntarily snaked out to coat her lips.
Adam watched as her tongue glided slowly across her lips and smiled. "I think I know the answer." His eyes held hers. "You haven't met a man who would make you want to throw all your schedules and controls out a window just to have a taste of him." His lips brushed against hers with the lightest touch. It was the jolt he felt that forced him to pull back. The intensity to cover her lips with his did not dissipate. The heat rising between them had increased to an unbearable temperature. He knew she felt it too. But this wasn't the time or place to act on what he was feeling. "One day soon, you will know that feeling." He stepped back and resumed his stance against the back counter.
