Luna was staring at her naked body in front of the big mirror and without even being aware her gaze slid over the surface of her tanned skin. Luna wasn’t even sure about the reason why she was standing there, watching herself.
She didn’t even know it, but unconsciously, she was searching for any sign of psychical damage ‘Riddick’ had caused.
No scratches, no bites, no cuts and no bruises. With the exception of the one located at her neck as the result of Riddick’s lips sucking hard enough to assure a mark. Luna let out the air slowly, sighing heavily and closed her eyes relieved.
The night had been progressively tough for her. “Riddick” had dragged her to a place of no return, crossing an invisible line, while he had been toying with her body and messing with her mind.
It wasn’t that she hadn’t enjoyed every second, but bondage was something that Luna wasn’t sure she would be able to repeat very often. For her it had not only meant a physical struggle but an emotional as well.
Luna was completely sure about one thing. This kind of sexual encounter required an endless amount of trust in your sex partner. And after what she had gone through last night, there was just one single man who she trusted enough without reservation or doubt to repeat it, and he was sleeping next to her.
Luna sighed hard, opening her eyes and looked at Vin, still asleep, reflected in the mirror. An unconscious smile graced her lips.
Nevertheless, there was one thing that Luna had to give endless thanks to “Riddick” for, and it was the fact that she had gotten over her fear concerning darkness. From now on, every time Luna would feel fear in a dark place, she had only to think about who lived there.
Vin awoke startled, and turned around in a fast move searching for Luna. His eyes were hurting like a bitch and he shut them tightly. Fuck!! He cursed silently.
Vin blinked furiously trying to focus his blurry vision and after a second he managed to see her through his teary eyes.
Luna was in front of the mirror and her eyes were fixed in a spot only she could see. It appeared as if she was lost in thought and Vin cursed himself silently.
Vin couldn’t believe that he had actually pulled out Riddick’s shivs to play with Luna’s body. Of course he had been training for weeks, more than ten hours each day, learning how to use them. But still, he had to admit himself, not without amusement, that Luna had been the only woman who he had trusted enough to unleash a dark side Vin didn’t even know he had in him.
It wasn’t that Vin considered himself a kinky guy at all, but it wasn’t the first time he had tied up a woman either.
Vin Diesel had been hosting wild parties at clubs and at his place, sometimes parties in which he and his closest male friends had dozens of chicks at their beck and call. Parties where drugs and alcohol had been running all over the place. Parties that sometimes had got out of hand.
Vin Diesel had met many women and had fucked the shit out of all of them, carrying out most of his sexual fantasies but they had always known about Vin Diesel’s reputation with no exceptions.
Nevertheless, it had been the first time that a woman had trusted him enough to let him take control over the encounter, letting him do whatever he wanted.
And at that exact moment, Vin realized that it had been Luna who had let him do just that. Control her.
He had wanted to see how far she was going to let him go and he had been assuming that her submission had been an act of control over her. But it had been quite the opposite; it had been something that he had earned, because Luna had been sure that he wasn’t going to hurt her. Deep down and spite of her fear, she knew he wouldn’t hurt her.
Realization dawned and the reality struck him so hard that Vin felt his heart clenching painfully, almost cutting off his breath. Vin shut his eyes tightly, forcing the air to pass through his lungs. He wanted her in his life forever.
Aw, fuck, Luna. What’ve you done to me?
“Hey, babydoll. Are you ok, Luna?” Vin asked, concern written all over his face. Luna blinked as she shook her head, looking at him through the mirror. She nodded ‘yes’ and smiled a little.
“Yes.” Luna replied and turned around to look at him. “I was just thinking about last night.” Luna added, padding to the bed and sitting beside him. Vin cursed himself silently.
“I’m sorry, babydoll. I didn’t mean to scare you.” Vin whispered, frowning deeply as he lifted a hand, stroking her cheek gently. Luna closed her eyes and tilted her head, enjoying his warm touch. “You should have told me that you were afraid of the dark.” He added his voice unusually deep and hoarse.
“I tried but…I…just”
Vin didn’t let her finish.
“It’s ok, Luna. You don’t have to say anything.” Vin screwed his face up a little and cursed himself. “It was a stupid game and I won’t do it again. I would never forgive myself if something had happened to you, Luna.” He explained seriously and put as much reassurance as he could in those words.
Luna noticed this and smiled broadly, taking his hand and entwining their fingers.
“I did trust you and you trusted me.” She whispered as she bent her head, pressing her forehead to his. Vin heaved a hard sigh and closed his eyes. “You don’t need to be sorry about it though. Honestly, I really did enjoy it as much as you did, Mark. I’m telling you the truth.” Luna added softly, closing her eyes.
“Let’s make ourselves a promise.” He said, tilting his head back to look at her eyes. Luna nodded ‘yes’, holding his teary gaze. “We’re not gonna use each other again like that. No matter what, we’re gonna try and talk about everything, ok? No more stupid role games to prove who is in control.”
They were looking at each other for a long moment and once again, time stopped around them.
They had crossed a line in their relationship and they both knew that they would never be able to feel the same way concerning themselves, ever.
Vin and Luna were almost strangers, but they had shared an experience that had involved much more than just trust in each other. They didn’t say it aloud, but neither of them would be able to live without the other in their life.
“I do. I promise.” Luna said seriously.
“I do. I promise.” Vin repeated as he kissed her gently. They parted lips and stared at their eyes.
Luna frowned when she realized that the area around Vin’s iris was slightly red and that his eyes were puffed.
“Those contact lenses are pure poison, ‘Riddick’.” She teased, stroking his cheek gently. In response Vin rolled his eyes, chuckling.
“Those fucking lenses are going to be a pain in my ass for at least three months.” He lay back, pulling Luna with him.
She made herself comfortable in his arms and encircled his waist, looking at him puzzled.
“It seems they are made of a material with special shit that makes the light reflect on them, that’s why you have the optical illusion that they are shining in the dark.” Vin explained as he stroked her back softly. “But that’s the problem, the fuckers are thicker that any other contact lenses.”
“That’s why you have them here?” Luna asked drawing invisible circles along his chest, around his nipples. “I mean they gave them to you to get used to them?”
Vin nodded as he got comfortable. “As well as the outfit and the shivs.” He said, sighing deeply.
He thought about his endless training sessions with shivs as well as learning a martial art called “Cali” that was originally from Spain. Vin couldn’t help but chuckle at his own thoughts.
Funny how lately everything around him had something to do with Spain.
“How about we take a shower together and after that, I’ll take care of those beautiful chocolate brown eyes of yours.” Luna said as she sat up, pulling Vin out of his thoughts. He looked at her smiling broadly.
“Hey! You don’t like Riddick’s silver eyes, babydoll?” Vin teased as he pushed her, making her back rest on the bed. “You told him that his eyes were beautiful.” He whispered a breath away from her lips. Luna laughed, rolling her eyes.
“No offence, but those silver eyes are shit if I have to compare them with these chocolate brown eyes that are looking at me now.” Luna whispered, raising her head, kissing his eyelids.
Vin grinned as he rolled to one side, pulling Luna on top of him.
“You want to know something funny?” He asked her, stroking her thighs up and down. Luna nodded ‘yes’ as she rested her head upon his chest. “As soon as I started the promotion of the movie they are going to ask me in every country the same question. ‘Mr. Diesel, what do you have in common with your character Riddick’?” Vin chuckled as he kissed her head.
Luna giggled and Vin gently grabbed a fist of her hair, lifting her head to look at her.
“What’s so funny, babydoll?” Vin asked, frowning deeply.
Luna grinned wickedly as her eyes sparkled with a mischievous gaze.
“I know exactly what they have in common, dork.” Luna teased as she moved backward a little, getting comfortable, straddling his hips.
In response, Vin knit a brow and fixed her with a suspicious gaze.
“Do you want to know what you should answer to that?” Luna asked him as she rubbed her sex against his.
Vin nodded ‘yes’ but he narrowed his eyes. Luna dropped her voice to an impossible sensual tone and elaborated.
“Well, you see, in fact they have something in common. Luna fucked the shit out of both Richard B. Riddick and Vin Diesel, and all in less than 24 hours.” She purred, winking and burst out laughing.
Vin laughed so hard with her that he thought his lungs were going to explode inside of his chest. But, he had to admit that it would have been more than just a great answer.
