M had been dressed and ready more than half an hour ago and she was watching how Luna was humming in front of the big wardrobe while thinking about what to wear for the Germany Embassy’s reception.
M glanced at her chrono, frowning as she stood, pushing Luna slightly to one side and picked an outfit for her.
Luna stumbled slightly as she glanced at M from the corner of her eye, shocked. M then turned on her heels and showed Luna the clothes.
“Here.” M said seriously, and returned to the armchair, getting comfortable.
Luna looked down puzzled when she saw what M had chosen for her to wear, she narrowed her eyes in suspicion and looked back up to M.
“I thought we were going to the Embassy.” Luna said as she locked eyes with M. In response, M rolled her eyes.
“Change of plans, Gemini. Didn’t you hear me?” M answered, grinning wickedly.
Luna frowned deeply and looked again at the clothes and back to M.
“Where the fuck are we going, M?” Luna asked seriously. Her voice as cold as ice. M laughed softly.
“We’re going to see his movie.” M stated, mimicking Luna’s tone of voice.
“The fuck we are.” Luna retorted, annoyed as she threw the clothes to the floor. Then she raised her voice. “What the fuck do you think you’re doing, M?!” Luna yelled as she closed her hands into fists, flashing M with a gaze full of banked anger.
M jumped to her feet and moved forward.
“Listen, kid. I’m tired of this shit, Luna. Stop pretending, woman!” M shouted annoyed as she stood toe to toe with her.
“I’m not pretending.” Luna hissed through clenched teeth. M laughed chuckled coldly, shaking her head in disbelief.
“You wanna bet?” M retorted, mockingly. Luna cursed herself silently as she moved backwards.
“I don’t feel anything for him. Not anymore.” She added, trying to sound nonchalant, but her voice betrayed her. “You saw how he was looking at me. How his eyes were flashing anger and pain against me.” Luna swallowed hard a knot in her throat, forcing back tears. “He never loved me, so why should I love him, huh?” She asked angrily.
“You don’t love him.” M said, narrowing her eyes.
“NO!” Luna shouted. “I don’t love him, not anymore.” She added as she took a deep breath, trying to calm herself.
“Prove that to me, Luna. Show me that you don’t love him and I won’t bother you again.” M replied softly, staring at Luna’s eyes. “You owe me that, kid.” She added seriously.
Luna grunted and turned on her heels, then headed to the bathroom and slammed the door shut. She leaned against the door and slowly slid down to the floor.
Luna brought her legs to her chest and encircled them with her arms. She then closed her eyes and bent her head, resting it on her knees.
Don’t worry, Luna. The voice inside of her head spoke gently. You’re a tough woman. The voice added softly. You will show him that you don’t love him anymore. The voice echoed faintly. You’ll prove that fact to M as well. She heard the voice add.
Luna sighed hard and got to her feet. She then opened the door of the bathroom and found M with the clothes in her hands.
Luna rolled her eyes and snatched the clothes from M’s hands. In response, M grinned as she locked eyes with Luna.
“You have twenty minutes. Be ready.” M said gently and turned on her heels, smiling broadly.
“Fuck you.” Luna muttered under her breath and closed the door.
In response, M rolled her eyes, shaking her head. She then glanced at her chrono and got comfortable on her armchair.
Madrid (Spain) Premiere of TCOR’s.
Hundreds of fans, nosy people, journalists and paparazzi were waiting at the theatre where tonight Vin Diesel was going to present his latest movie; “The Chronicles of Riddick”.
The local authorities as well as the Spanish celebrities who had been invited to the event had already arrived and everybody was waiting eagerly to see Vin Diesel in flesh and bone.
After what had seemed an eternity for all for them the black vehicle finally stopped in front of the red carpet that had been placed by the Organization.
As soon as the fans saw the vehicle, they started to scream and the photographers started to take pictures of the car.
Vin looked through the window. Where are you, babydoll? He asked himself silently as his eyes wandered around, trying to find Luna in the crowds who were waiting for him. Vin sighed hard and locked eyes with Valentino.
“Are you ready, Vin?” Val asked concern in his voice. Vin took a deep breath and nodded ‘yes’.
He then looked for his sunglasses and put them on. Val smiled slightly, winking. Vin winked back.
“Show time.” Vin said, grinning.
A moment later, Vin Diesel emerged from the black car. Immediately a wave of flashes illuminated him.
He was in a pair of pale blue jeans, white tank top, camel leather jacket and his combat boots. Vin Diesel smiled broadly as he headed directly to his fans and started to sign autographs.
He was laughing, teasing and making jokes with his fans, trying his best to sign as many autographs as possible.
After a long moment, Vin Diesel headed towards a group of journalists and continued answering questions while waving his hand, greeting his fans, posing for pictures with his classical thumbs up and the sign of the victory.
Amanda and Valentino climbed out of the vehicle and headed directly to the theatre. A long moment later, Vin Diesel entered the theatre and joined the people from the Organization inside.
As soon as he climbed the stage, all the people burst out in applause. Vin Diesel thanked the wonderful people who had come to watch his movie, given him the warmest welcome, all in a more than just fine Spanish.
The people laughed with him when he apologized for his limited knowledge of Spanish and promised next time he would make it better. And once again everyone burst out in applause.
Vin Diesel climbed down from the stage and headed towards his seat. He was sitting besides the Minister of Culture who was a fan of his work.
The Organization dimmed the lights slightly inside of the auditorium while Vin Diesel was talking lively with the woman about the actual action movies.
Valentino and Amanda were sitting behind him, glancing at their chrono from time to time.
Suddenly, the lights were dimmed a little more inside the theatre and the soundtrack started.
Everybody went silent.
M told Luna that that she didn’t want to arrive to the premiere with the Rolls Royce, so she convinced her to drive Luna’s Mercedes. Luna had rolled her eyes, grunting but finally she had agreed.
In the end it was all just a question of when M would be able to catch her in her lie. Luna was more than ready to show M that she wasn’t in love with Vin Diesel, and that she had finally gotten over him.
As soon as a turquoise SL600 stopped in front of the red carpet, the paparazzi started to take pictures of them.
Luna gasped and looked at M, her eyes flashing full of fear. In response, M smiled gently, patting her hand.
Two men from the organization headed towards the car and opened the door, helping Luna and M to get out of the car.
As soon as the paparazzi recognized her, they started to ask for her attention, calling her. M burst into hysterical laughter. ¡Mierda! Luna cursed silently as soon as the flashes blinded her.
Luna blinked furiously and then she smiled broadly, blushing slightly as she hurried inside the theatre. M grinned as she followed her.
In the hall of the theatre were only the security guards and Vin Diesel’s bodyguards. When both of them were inside of the hall, someone called M and she turned her head.
It was an old friend who had come to the premiere with his wife.
M told Luna to wait for her exactly where she was standing and headed toward their friends.
Luna then glanced at one of Vin’s bodyguards and recognized him. He was the man who had opened the door of the suite at the hotel in London.
The man grinned, winking as he gave her the once over. Luna narrowed her eyes and smiled shyly.
M had chosen Luna’s outfit and now Luna was cursing her best friend for that. She was wearing a green neckhole top. Her white pants were so tight that they looked as if they were painted directly onto her skin. They revealed each and every curve and hugged her ass. And she was wearing black, impossibly high heel boots.
While Imam was talking with Riddick on the screen, Amanda tapped Vin on the shoulder. Vin turned his head, nodded ‘yes’ and said his good byes to the Minister and stood.
Vin was walking slowly and without being aware of his act, he was searching for Luna in the people who crammed the auditorium. When he couldn’t find her there, Vin looked down at his feet and hurried his steps, following Valentino and Amanda outside.
Just relax, sugar. The voice inside of her head started to speak as soon as Luna felt her heart skipping a beat as thousand of butterflies started to flutter inside her stomach. It’ll be very easy, Luna. The voice added. If you see him, you say “hi” and then you congratulate him on his success. The voice continued sounding inside of her brain.
Luna started to swing her hips, lightly standing on one heel of her boots, chewing her lower lip.
Vin Diesel was about to reach the entrance of the auditorium when his heart skipped a beat, just to race a couple of seconds later.
Unconsciously, Vin glanced at the ring and saw how the star, trapped inside of the black stone, was shining, with such intensity that he blinked in surprise.
Then he looked slowly back up and saw her with her back to him. Vin’s eyes opened wide as his heart jumped inside of his chest.
M glanced at her from the corner of her eye, grinning.
All of sudden a new voice sounded inside of Luna’s head. Who do you want to fool, Luna? M’s voice asked.
Luna’s eyes opened wide as she gasped loudly, staring at M.
M was talking with their friends, laughing. It seemed as if she was oblivious to Luna’s presence though.
Suddenly, visions of Vin and herself laughing, walking hand in hand, dancing under the moonlight on a deserted beach and making love popped inside of Luna’s mind, torturing her mercilessly.
Luna tried with all her will to get rid of those visions, but the more she forced herself, the less she could do it, so after a moment, Luna gave up, sighing hard.
Valentino grinned wickedly as soon as he saw Luna and he leaned against Vin’s shoulder, murmuring something to him. Vin frowned slightly as he nodded ‘yes’.
After a moment of hesitation, Vin headed toward Luna, cleared his throat and swallowed hard. He then took a deep breath and in his most sexy, deepest voice, Vin plunged ahead.
“What a killer ass, babydoll.”
Luna’s heart jumped inside her chest and her eyes almost popped out of her head as soon as she heard Vin’s deep voice.
Suddenly she felt a strong arm encircling her waist from behind, turning her around so fast that Luna almost lost her balance. Another arm joined the first to prevent her fall.
The movement was so fast that her brain didn’t register it and she grabbed his jacket for support, gasping. The next thing she felt was Vin’s lips crashing against her mouth, sliding his tongue inside of her parted lips.
Luna shut her eyes tightly as every muscle in her body tensed, just to relax two seconds later. An unconscious moan escaped her lips and Luna pushed Vin’s chest back a little.
Vin released her lips and locked eyes with her. Their hearts were beating in the same rhythm and they were breathing in unison.
They stared at each others eyes in complete silence and time stopped around them.
A small whimper escaped Luna’s lips as she lifted a hand slowly, stroking Vin’s cheek. He closed his eyes and tilted his head to her palm, enjoying her soft touch.
Then, Luna lifted her other hand and gently she pressed his neck, rubbing it. Vin snapped his eyes open and stared at Luna’s eyes.
She was chewing her lower lip and hesitantly pulled Vin’s head to her capturing his lips in a slow gentle kiss.
Vin pulled her body to him as Luna encircled his neck with her arms. They both moaned as soon as their bodies pressed together, and then the kiss turned wild.
There weren’t anybody from the press around them, just Valentino, Amanda, M and the bodyguards. And they all pretended that they weren’t there watching the couple kissing each other like there was no tomorrow.
When they finally parted lips, they were both panting, their breath ragged. They didn’t move, their foreheads pressed together, sighing in unison.
“I’m sorry.” Luna whispered, breaking the silence. “I…Mark, I…” Luna felt her throat close with that invisible knot. She swallowed hard and took a shaky breath.
“It’s, okay, baby.” Vin murmured as he kissed her forehead. “Let’s get out of here, so we can talk.” He added as he tilted his head back, locking eyes with her.
Luna took a deep breath, nodding ‘yes’ as a single tear rolled down her cheek. Vin frowned slightly, wiping her cheek with his thumb, stroking her skin.
He then sighed hard and turned his head to look at Val. Valentino grinned, winking.
Vin then let go of her and took her hand, squeezing gently. Luna looked at him and took a deep breath. Valentino went to Luna’s side and hugged her tightly.
“Hola, princesa.” (Hi, princess.) Val murmured, kissing her cheek. “Bienvenida a casa, Luna.” (Welcome home, Luna.) He added, tightening his embrace. Luna hugged him back, swallowing hard.
“I think I have reached spot B, Valentino.” Luna whispered, grinning. This caused Val to laugh hard, kissing her cheek one more time. “Gracias, cielo.” (Thanks, honey.) She added, stroking his back up and down.
“I was sure you could make it, baby.” Val said, winking.
Vin cleared his throat, causing Val and Luna to roll their eyes, laughing.
Valentino then turned his attention to M and headed towards her, followed by Amanda. They introduced themselves to her and then they headed toward the vehicle outside.
Vin Diesel’s bodyguards moved ahead of them, waiting for Vin to be ready to leave the theatre. Vin turned to Luna and took her hands, squeezing them.
“Are you sure about this, Luna?” Vin asked seriously.
Luna frowned slightly as her eyes flickered to his, wondering how she had been able to live without those chocolate brown eyes.
“I mean. I can’t go through all this shit again, Luna. I need to know what your heart wants.” He added, concern written all over his face.
Vin was sure that that he wouldn’t be able to live without her if she changed her mind and started to panic. Luna swallowed hard, clearing her throat.
“My heart wants to be with you, Mark.” Luna replied and put as much reassurance as she could in those words.
Vin noticed it and let out the air he had been holding without being aware of it with a painful sigh. Luna looked down at his hand and saw the ring. She grinned slightly and looked back up at him.
“Black Star. The legend says: the one who carries it will be able to find the path to her heart.” She whispered, smiling broadly as she locked eyes with him. “Lead the way, dork.” Luna teased, grinning.
In response, Vin laughed hard and bent his head, stopping just a breath away of Luna’s lips. He then grinned wickedly as he grabbed her bottom, pulling her to him.
“Jesus, woman. I have missed that killer ass, mami.” He growled softly as he squeezed it gently.
Luna moaned, jumping slightly as she rubbed herself against his body, feeling the familiar bulge starting to grow.
“Take me out of here, papi.” Luna purred, brushing her lips against his.
Vin turned on his heels, pulling out his sunglasses, looking at her. Luna laughed softly as she opened her purse, pulling out her sunglasses, arching a brow.
Vin laughed and they both headed hand in hand directly to the entrance of the theatre.
As soon as they saw the crowd of fans, journalists and paparazzi waiting for them, they heaved a hard sigh in unison. Then they both took a deep breath and continued walking to Luna’s car.
At once everybody started to scream, asking for their attention. When they were almost at the car, Vin leaned his head slightly.
“May I drive your car?” He whispered, brushing his lips against her neck. Luna arched a brow and fixed him with a serious gaze.
“We are not that close friends.” She replied, laughing.
Vin laughed with her as he opened the driver’s door for her. Luna smiled broadly as she got in her car, adjusting the seatbelt.
Vin circled the car and went to the other side, grinning and waving his hand to his fans. After a moment, he got in and closed the door, adjusting his seatbelt.
“Ready to loose them, baby?” Vin asked as he rested his hand on her thigh, squeezing gently.
Luna laughed as she started the car. She then pressed the accelerator, locking eyes with Vin as her hand rested on his inner thigh.
“Do you like foreplay?” She asked as she stroked his inner tight softly, her eyes sparkling with a mischievous gaze.
A deep low growl passed Vin’s lips causing Luna’s soft hair stood at once, shivering in anticipation.
“Only with you, babydoll.” Vin replied in his sexy deep voice.
