One week later.
Luna looked through the big window of the salon and saw Vin lying in a hammock, completely absorbed, reading a book. She recalled the events of the last week while staring at his body, chewing her lower lip.
After they lost the paparazzi, they headed back to M’s mansion and went directly to Luna’s bedroom. They spent almost all the night talking about their feelings concerning the other and how they were going to deal with their new situation.
Luna shut her eyes tightly, forcing her tears back, swallowing an invisible knot in her throat when she remembered Vin’s eyes full of frozen tears.
Vin was telling her how much he had missed her and how his life had turned into a living hell the second she had gotten in that car, leaving him behind without a second thought.
Vin told her that at the beginning, he had been full of anger against her and that he had tried really hard to forget her and move on, but that in the end he hadn’t been able to push her out of his heart.
He even said to Luna how he and Valentino had been spending their free time playing Xbox and how Val hadn’t given up on him, not even for a second. Adding that Val had been showing him his support and love since the very first day, forcing him to keep her memory alive within his heart and soul while waiting for fucking Fate to play its part in the game.
Afterwards, Luna had told him how she had been scared to death and how she had been having nightmares as soon as she had arrived from LA. She also told Vin how those nightmares had changed as soon as he had landed in Europe to present his movie.
Luna explained to Vin how she had been fighting against herself, trying to understand the reason why she had left him, and how M had practically kidnapped her because she wasn’t sure if Luna was going to disappear as soon as she would have heard that he was in Europe.
Then an unconscious smile graced her lips, when Luna remembered how Vin had been joking, saying that the Academy should give him the Oscar for best male performance.
Vin Diesel had been fooling everyone around him with the exception of Amanda and Valentino, and if his performance wasn’t worthy of an Oscar, he didn’t have a fucking clue what kind of performance would.
He even told her how much Roman had missed her and that he had finally found her missing turquoise top.
In response, Luna had laughed with him and she had promised Vin that she was going to try her best not to freak out on him the way she did.
Vin had fixed her with his beautiful chocolate brown eyes while rubbing her tiny scar gently, the one at her heart, and he had promised Luna not to scare the shit out of her with his future actions and decisions linked to their relationship.
Then they had sealed that promise with a long slow gentle kiss, one of those he knew she loved.
A strong shiver ran up Luna’s spine when a vision of both of them making love spread in her mind.
Luna chuckled silently when she remembered how Vin had been complaining, telling her that they had a lot of catching up to do, because he hadn’t had sex with any other woman after her, and that he was never going to allow her to inflict such damage to his body again.
Seven months without sex had been torture for him, but he honestly hadn’t wanted any other women after her.
Luna couldn’t help but laugh hard when she remembered Vin’s words.
“My dick seems like a damn joystick and that’s your entire fault, woman. I sure as hell didn’t enjoy myself so fucking much, not even when I was a damn teenager.”
He had said in his sexy voice as he had fixed her with a serious gaze, but grinning like a loony.
Luna grinned wickedly as she recalled how she had shown him what the ‘Goddess of blowjobs’ was able to perform to compensate him for his sacrifice.
The following morning they had had lunch with M, Valentino and Amanda at M’s place, and after the lunch they had said their good byes to them and they headed directly to the airport where M’s jet was waiting for them to fly to Nice.
M told Luna that when the time would come and Luna would marry Vin, the house would be her wedding present for both of them.
Luna then looked down at her right ring finger and saw how the star, trapped inside of the black stone, was shining.
Vin had given it back to Luna the first night they were together at M’s house and he had asked her not to remove it from her finger ever again.
Luna cried in his arms and she promised not to do it. She swore that she had found the way to her heart.
Vin narrowed his eyes in suspicion and insisted on it; he wasn’t sure that Luna wasn’t going to run away from him again.
Suddenly, the phone rang, pulling Luna out of her thoughts. She smiled broadly and went to pick it up.
“You’re not tired of being right, huh, M?” Luna asked, pretending to be annoyed. M laughed hard, shaking her head.
“I would say yes, but it would be a lie.” M replied, smiling at the other side of the line. Luna rolled her eyes, laughing. “Have you been a good girl?” She teased, smiling.
In response, Luna laughed softly as she looked through the big window and saw Vin still absorbed in whatever he was reading.
“Yes, mom. I’ve been a good little girl.” Luna answered mockingly, grinning. M arched a brow and stared at the phone. Then Luna took a deep breath and cleared her throat. “I have found him, M and I’m not going to let him go out of my life. Mark is my soul mate and sure as hell nobody would be able to separate us again, not even myself. I swear.” Luna explained and put as much reassurance as she could in her words.
M noticed it and let out the air she had been holding without been aware of it.
“Listen, kid. I have to tell you something.” M said seriously.
When Luna heard the tone of M’s voice, she started to chew her lower lip, frowning deeply.
M couldn’t help but chuckle. She didn’t need to see Luna to know that she was starting to be much more than just a little nervous.
“I’m listening.” Luna said as she swallowed hard.
M grinned as she got comfortable in her armchair.
“You know I’m a little weird and all that, but I had a bizarre vision, Luna.” M said, grinning wickedly.
At the other side of the line, Luna went silent. She didn’t know if she wanted to hear what M was going to tell her anymore.
“There were elephants and they were crossing mountains covered with snow.” M explained, frowning slightly. Even for her, that vision was more than just bizarre.
Luna frowned deeply completely puzzled.
“Elephants?” Luna asked, rolling her eyes. “Why can’t you see normal things like everybody else, woman?” She teased mockingly, laughing softly.
“Luna!” M exclaimed annoyed.
Luna’s laughter died on her lips. She then cleared her throat.
“Ok, ok, I’m sorry, M.” Luna said softly as she recalled the meaning of M’s words.
M rolled her eyes. She always had known that Luna was a teaser, but damn! These things were important for her future.
“Ok, I get it. Elephants. Snow. Mountains.” Luna added, chuckling at her own words. In response, M laughed, shaking her head.
“That’s right, kid. Elephants crossing mountains covered in snow.” M repeated, grinning. Luna smiled broadly as she took a deep breath. “Now go and fuck the shit out of that sexy hot man. Be a good girl. I’ll call you in a couple of weeks. Love you. Bye” M joked, grinning and without waiting for Luna’s answer, she hung the phone up.
Luna arched a brow, grinning like a loony.
“I love you too, M.” She said but she knew that M hadn’t heard her. She then hung the phone and headed toward the terrace, while thinking about M’s words.
Damn, M! You and your visions, Luna told herself silently as she reached the garden of M’s house. After a moment, she shook her head, dissolving the vision that M’s words had sprung in her mind and headed towards Vin.
He was now talking to Valentino on his cell phone. “Yeah…. We’ll be back in a couple of days…. Sure, bro. Bye.” Vin said, grinning and ended the call.
He then turned his head and found Luna walking to him, swinging her hips, dressed in a small turquoise bikini. Vin sat up and stared at her body as he pictured her pregnant with his baby.
Vin Diesel was going to start shooting his next movie in a few weeks. The title was going to be “The Pacifier.” He was going to be filming with kids and babies and he couldn’t help it but suddenly Vin didn’t want to wait any longer to have his own kids.
Luna noticed how he was staring at her but it seemed he was lost in his own thoughts. She smiled as she reached his side. Luna then looked down at him, grinning.
“Hey, papi.” Luna purred softly as she lifted her hand, stroking his head gently. Vin shook his head slightly, blinking. Then he looked up at her.
“Hey, mami.” Vin replied, grinning as he raised his hands, grabbing her hips, pulling Luna to him.
She then sat onto his lap, straddling his hips, encircling his neck with her hands. He leaned his head forward and captured her lips. Luna smiled against his lips as she made herself comfortable.
Vin released her lips and locked eyes with her. After a moment, he cleared his throat, narrowing his eyes.
“Have you ever made love with a Carthaginian general?” Vin asked suddenly, grinning wickedly. Luna frowned deeply, smiling.
“A Carthaginian general?” She asked puzzled as she looked up in the open sky, pretending she was thinking hard, trying to remember. “Ummm…. Let me think….jesus! There were a lot before you, but from Carthago Nova…” She murmured absently.
Vin growled deeply and grabbed her bottom, pinching it. Luna jumped slightly as she yelped in surprise, laughing hard.
Vin narrowed even more his eyes, fixing her with a serious gaze, pretending to be annoyed.
“Nope. I don’t think so, baby.” Luna finally said, still smiling broadly.
“That’s what I thought.” Vin teased as he encircled her waist, pressing her down to him.
A soft moan passed Luna’s lips as soon as she noticed his erection pressing against her sex. She then grinned as she rubbed herself against him, staring at his eyes.
Luna brought her hands up and stroked his arms up and down. “Why?” She asked softly as she leaned forward, brushing her lips against his.
Vin lifted his hands and burying them in her hair, he captured her lips in a searing kiss. Luna moaned against his lips as he released her hair and started to stroke her bottom, drawing circles.
When Vin released her lips, he pressed his lips to her ear, teasing and nibbling her ear lobe. Luna was stroking his back up and down when something that was behind him on the hammock caught her attention. The book that Vin had been reading was there.
Luna fixed her gaze on the cover and read silently. “Hannibal, The Conqueror.”
She narrowed her eyes in suspicion as she recalled M’s words. Elephants crossing mountains covered in snow… She said silently. What the fuck…?
Luna’s eyes opened wide when realization dawned. She remembered how she had studied The Punic Wars in school and how Hannibal crossed the Alps to fight against the Romans with elephants.
You should get paid for those visions, woman. Luna said silently as she looked back at Vin.
She then stroked his bare chest with long slow sweeps of her hands. Vin’s lips let out a soft moan as he slid his hand inside Luna’s bikini, caressing her pubic hair.
Luna closed her eyes, gasping in anticipation when she felt Vin’s fingers rubbing her sex. At once, his body tensed as he felt her heat and wetness under his fingers.
“Fuck, Luna. You’re all wet, woman.” Vin growled softly, as his hand became more intrusive, increasing the rhythm.
Luna tensed, moaning loudly as Vin captured one nipple through the fabric of her bikini top, causing her to arch her back, applying more pressure against his lips.
He removed the top from her in one fast move and started to tease her nipples into hard peaks. Her short hairs rose all at once as soon as she felt his tongue, hot and wet, caressing her skin, which caused her to shiver.
Luna grabbed his shoulders as she closed her eyes. She was sure that he would be the one and only from now on and until her death.
Vin locked eyes with Luna one more time, fixing her with a gaze full of passion and love.
“I was wondering if you are up for another role game, doll.” He whispered huskily as his right hand continued stroking her faster and harder.
Luna screamed when she felt how her body was trembling with pleasure. In response, Vin let out a deep growl when he noticed how Luna had started to move her hips to meet his fingers thrusting into her tightness.
Vin’s left hand grabbed her bikini bottom and ripped it from her as a deep growl let his lips. Luna gasped and shivered in anticipation.
“Oh, yessss…..” Luna purred softly as she locked eyes with him. “Let’s find out, Hannibal.” She teased, grinning as she captured his lips while dusk fell over Nice.
Neither of them knew exactly what Fate had in store for both, but at least now they were sure that whatever it was they were going to face it as one. Together even through hell.
Ten months later
Luna sighed hard as she stared at the ceiling. She couldn’t sleep at all and in her current state, she couldn’t get more comfortable on the big bed though. Luna’s lips let out a heavy sigh as she frowned slightly, thinking about the events of the last two years. She was so lost in her own thoughts that she didn’t notice that Vin was awake and staring at her, grinning.
“Hey, mami.” Vin murmured as he stroke her rounded belly gently. Luna shook her head slightly and looked at him. She then lifted her hand, rubbing Vin’s hand. “You can’t sleep?” He asked concerned as he rose slightly, resting on his elbow. Luna smiled, sighing softly.
“I was thinking about how we met.” She answered, entwining their fingers. Vin rolled his eyes, chuckling. “Yeah, I know. Don’t tell me.” Luna added, frowning deeply.
He then moved forward and pressed a gentle kiss on her belly, lingering on his caress. Luna grinned as she stroked his shaved head.
“Do you really love this baby, huh, dork?” She asked, laughing softly. Vin smirked against her skin.
“I love you both, doll.” He replied as he pressed his ear to her belly, feeling their future baby, kicking.
