Unexpected problems with her tickets made Luna spend the night in London. The following morning her flight would depart to LA.
She was going to stay for two weeks and then she would be back in Spain to her current lifestyle. Nothing more, nothing less. But she had no idea what Fate had up its sleeve for her.
Saturday night. London. Luxury hotel. Attic. Just two suites.
Luna had taken a shower and she had ordered something to eat. After that she had taken a seat in front of her laptop to check her emails. Of all of them there were two that she had been waiting to receive. One from Luis and the other one from M.
Luna shook her head, grinning and opened Luis’ email.
Mrs. Müller wants to meet us in her office in Berlin. I’ve written a file for her, please check it out and send it back to me as soon as possible. No excuses, babydoll. Now, onto much more important matters. DO NOT FORGET MY PORN, SUGAR!!!!
Luna rolled her eyes, giggling as she downloaded the file to check it.
Luis had been the general manager of her company for the last four years. Luna loved him as soon as she met him. He was a hell of a man and his skills were not only very valuable but also unique. Luis Santaella was able to sell a complete selection of sex toys to a nun from a closed order, and he was as addicted to work as Luna was if not more.
Luna had to admit that Luis was slightly bizarre in his taste and manners but he sure as hell had been working his ass off, helping her to raise her company almost from the beginning. They were much more than just partners, they were also close friends.
Luna then opened M’s message.
Gemini, I hope Susana gave you my message. Just in case. DO NOT FUCK THIS UP!!!! Hugs and kisses. M.
Luna sighed, concerned, and without being aware of it, she started to bite her lower lip, thinking about M’s words.
After a long moment, Luna shook her head and opening the file Luis had sent her; she focused her attention on that and started to check it. She had been immersed in that task for about fifteen minutes when all of sudden she heard loud voices, laughter and music.
My neighbours, she told herself, changing a few things in the document not paying any more attention to it.
After a couple of minutes the music sounded louder and Luna sighed hard, glancing at her chrono. It was almost 01:15am.
She shook her head and did her best to keep focused on what she was doing but it was almost impossible. What the fuck…? Was she humming the songs?!
“Keep focused, Luna.” She whispered to herself, rolling her eyes when she realized that she was writing the text of the song instead of the damn report. ¡Mierda! Luna cursed silently, wiping out the text as she heaved a loud sigh.
It was clear to her that whoever was lodged in the suite next to her wasn’t going to let her keep working, so finally Luna gave up and standing, she stretched her back, heading toward the terrace.
It wasn’t only the noises or the music. For some unthinkable reason, she found herself really curious about who her neighbours were.
When Luna stepped outside, she looked at the other terrace and it was then that she saw them.
There were three guys, talking, drinking and laughing out loud. Luna tilted her head to one side and found herself staring openly at one of them. The guy was wearing sunglasses even though the sun was gone hours before, and a baseball cap.
All of sudden he turned around and they looked at each other for a few seconds before he grinned.
“Hey, babe! Wanna join us?!” He yelled, staring back at her.
Luna blinked, almost jumping when she heard his voice. It was as deep as the ocean and still smooth, slightly hoarse and sexy. In seconds, she was chewing her lower lip unable to look away.
They both stared at each other for a long moment in complete silence until Luna turned on her heels and without a second thought she headed toward the door of her suite.
A little fun wasn’t going to kill her and besides, she wasn’t able to concentrate anymore. So Luna padded along the corridor and knocked on the other suite door. Nothing. So she knocked harder and waited not so patiently for someone to open the door, which happened a few seconds later.
“¡Mierda!” Luna exclaimed, frowning deeply.
What emerged from inside the suited caused Luna to move two steps backward, almost yelping in shock.
The biggest guy she had ever laid eyes on was standing in the doorframe, looking at her from head to toe, frowning. Black man, at least 6’5 and more than 250 pounds of muscles over muscles. His tee shirt rippling his arms that were almost as big as one of Luna’s thighs.
Luna swallowed hard clearing her throat, but before she had the chance to utter a single word, the guy reached for her.
“At last!” He exclaimed, slightly annoyed. “We phoned more than an hour ago, sugar.” He added and with that he pulled her inside the suite, closing the door at her back and then he headed toward the terrace.
Luna went motionless, looking around, not really knowing what the hell had happened.
Music was blaring, smoke floating all over the room and at least ten guys that started to whistle, cheering and clapping their hands almost at unison.
Luna blinked and forced a tiny smile. Not that she was that stunning but she used to cause such an effect sometimes while supervising the constructions her company was building.
The employees use to cheer at her until someone told them she was the one who pay their salaries.
Luna took a deep breath and letting out the air slowly, she headed toward the big guy who had opened the door.
“Excuse me, but I think you made a mistake.” She said but her voice was hardly heard above the music.
The guy ignored her and turned around, gesturing to the others to keep quiet for a second. Then he returned his attention to her.
“Come with me, beautiful. I’ll show you when you can change your outfit for the show.” He said and with that he walked towards another room in the suite.
Luna blinked fast, trying to make sense of the situation, as she stood right where she was, frozen like a statue.
Change my outfit? A show? She asked herself.
After a moment, Luna snapped back to the reality surrounding her and searching with her gaze she found the place from where the music was coming. Without a second thought, she headed toward the stereo, pushing the on/off button causing the music to stop in a second flat.
At once every single guy inside the room started to complain. So Luna smiled sweetly and turned around, facing them.
“Sorry, guys, but I think that you…”
She couldn’t finish her line.
“Hey! Who turned off the fucking music?”
That smooth gravely voice sounded at her back and Luna turned around. Her eyes widened completely when she saw the owner of that voice.
He was tall, around 6’2 and dressed in a pair of jeans and white tee shirt. The guy was all tight muscles and his skin was like caramel. Luna chewed her lower lip and stared at him.
He chuckled, giving her the once over as he slowly licked his lips. Luna found herself shivering unconsciously.
“Come on, babydoll, move that killer ass you’ve got there and go change for the show.” He said in his deep voice. “Valentino is waiting for his birthday present, babe.” He added as he pointed in Val’s direction.
Luna arched a brow, following his finger’s direction. There was a guy smiling and he waved at her, winking. Luna then turned her attention to ‘caramel skin’ as his words echoed inside her brain.
Babydoll?… killer ass?… dance for Valentino?… Babydoll? BABYDOLL!
That did it. Luna grunted, narrowing her green eyes and without a second thought she headed toward him, stopping a few inches from his face.
“Listen to me, asshole. I’m not a babydoll, but I’ve got a killer ass and I’m not dancing for Valentino.” She whispered coldly, a breath away from his face, her gaze flashing anger.
In response, he knit a brow and at once everyone around went silent, staring at them. He then grinned, tilting his head to one side and holding her gaze, he replied.
“Are you sure you’re not gonna dance for us … babydoll?” He teased, as his grin grew wider.
Luna felt her anger consume her as she swallowed hard.
“Fuck. What part you don’t understand, buddy? No. I will repeat it to you again and this time read my lips, asshole. NO!” She shouted at him, staring at his eyes.
Without waiting for an answer, Luna turned on her heels and headed to the door of the suite, without looking at him or anyone else. She reached it, opened it and turned again to look at him.
He was still staring at her. Luna bit her lip and swallowed hard. “And I am not a fucking babydoll, sucker!” Luna hissed. Then went out leaving the door open behind her as she walked through.
Two seconds later, she could hear them laughing hard and she shook her head, rolling her eyes. Fucking idiot, she cursed silently, thinking why the hell she had lost her temper so damn fast. What the hell? Luna was fumbling with the key card when she heard him again.
“Last chance …. babydoll!” He teased, shouting from the doorframe.
She didn’t bother to answer him, her middle finger did it in her place, in response he laughed hard and Luna slammed her door closed.
“Fucking asshole. Who the hell does he think he is?” She muttered in disgust.
A moment later, the music was blaring again and Luna knew she would be damned if she was going to go back outside her suite to complain. So after a moment, she headed towards her bedroom, closing the door and collapsing onto her bed.
Four songs later, she fell asleep, humming the songs.
