Off the Record

is almost whatever you want it to be, Liz. It’s not public. It’s not
in the news. It’s a woman and a man taking what they can. I’m not
promising you much, but I’m only asking for discretion. Everything else
you give me is up to you,” Brady said. “But it’s worth it to take the
risk. I can damn well promise you that it’s worth it.”
wanted to tell him, Yes, God, yes a thousand times yes! But what if she
got invested? What the hell! She was already invested! It was impulsive
and downright insane compared to her normal behavior, but she knew now
that if she said no, she would regret it forever.

“Hey baby,” he said with a smile that she knew he was faking. “Where were you?”
His eyes asked what were you doing with him?
“Getting some water.” She held the bottle up.
“We’re about finished here. Are you ready to head out?”
“I’ve been ready,” she said through a smile of her own. She was sure
he read the before you were playing nice with her edge to her comment.

“I don’t want it to be easy. I just want it to be right, and the only way it’s ever going to be right is with you.”

“There you are,” he said, striding toward her. “I knew I’d find you here.”
“Don’t act like you know me,” she said coyly.
“Oh Lexi, I do know you.” He pulled her into him and kissed her little button nose. She giggled.
“When do we get to leave?”
“Soon. I have to talk to a few more people, and then we can head out.”
“Good. I’m ready to take you home.”
He arched an eyebrow. “Sounds like we’re going to have a night in,” he said, brushing his lips against her ear.
“Hey,” she said, smacking him on the arm and breaking out of his embrace. “Not here.”
He chuckled at her. “Yes, I figured we’d go home first.”
Lexi felt the blush creep up her neck. She was hardly prudish, but out
in public like this…she thought he would have a bit of discretion. His
gleaming eyes told her that the last thing on his mind was discretion.

But that didn’t prove that nothing had happened. Ir just brushed the dirt under the rug so that the floor looked clean for visitors.

“What a surprise!” Bekah said. She looked at her smugly as if she had expected her to be here.
Lexi didn’t like falling into Bekah’s plans in any way. “Bekah,” she said curtly.
“Do you really think this is the best place for you right now?”
“Around you? No, not particularly,” Lexi responded dryly.
Bekah bristled, which was highly entertaining. Lexi liked to see her
uncomfortable. She was just a little too perfect with her long blonde
hair, perfect chunky bangs, and baby blues. She had on a rather
innocent looking pink dress and modest heels.
“Let me just give you some friendly advice,” Bekah said, stepping forward toward her.
“Just what I always wanted.”
“If I were you, I’d stay away from him.”
“Is that so?” Lexi asked, arching an eyebrow.
“You shouldn’t even be here right now.”
“The best part about all of this, Bekah, is that it’s none of your
business,” Lexi said. She shot her a big fake smile before turning her
back and walking away.

“I didn’t really come here to talk about him.”
“I didn’t either,” he said leaning forward in his seat. “I came for very different reasons.”
Lexi flushed at the implication in his words and the sensual way in
which he said that. “It’s over. I know I led you to believe this could
be more than it is, but it isn’t,” she got out quickly.
assure you that neither of us treated this as just a meaningless fuck.
You can try to tell yourself that all you want…but you’re just lying to
“Look, I don’t think it would be fair…”
“Oh, don’t give me fair,” he said, slamming his hand down on the table. “I don’t want fair!”
Lexi jumped at the fierceness in his voice that hadn’t been there
before. He was really serious about all of this. She glanced into his
eyes and felt the anger simmering just under the surface from across the
table. He took a breath and reached for her hand. He wrapped his
hands over her own, but kept his eyes locked on hers.
“You don’t play fair, Lexi. So, why should I?”

“No,” Lexi said pulling the white covers up over her eyes.
“Come on. You’re going to be late to work,” he said prying the covers
from her hands. She squirmed against him under the sheets, tangling
their legs together.
“Can’t make me,” she quipped, burying her face into his toned chest.
“Oh…I can make you late,” he murmured into her mass of curly brown
hair. His nose found her ear and lightly brushed against it, causing
her to squirm for all new reasons.
His arm circled her waist
pulling her flush against him. His hand trailed lightly down her spine
resting comfortably at the small of her bare back. She hummed into his
chest as he kneaded the tight muscles. Lexi’s hands wound up into his
hair, and she slowly peeked back up at him. The smile on his face was
lazy, comfortable and so incredibly endearing. She couldn’t believe
that after everything they had been through, he could still look at her
like she was the greatest prize he ever won.
“You’re so distracting,” she grumbled pulling lightly on his hair.
“I’m the one trying to get you out of bed even though all I want to do
is keep you in it all day,” he said kissing her forehead.
“You’re going to make me late,” she teased, tugging harder on the lock of hair and pulling his lips down to her.
He didn’t argue with her as their lips melded together. Nibbling
lightly on his bottom lip, Lexi sucked his lip into her mouth. His
breathing hitched and he grasped her hips forcefully between his hands.
She could feel the indents he was making in her lower back, which only
fueled her forward. Sliding her leg across his body, Lexi straddled his
hips and slowly started grinding herself against him. He assisted her
in the movement rocking her hips and pushing her harder against him.
She could feel him growing ready for her through his green boxers, and
she wasn’t far behind him.
“You can’t go into work,” he groaned into her ear. “I’m not letting you.”
Lexi responded by leaning forward and pressing her lips to his again.
He smiled against her lips, encouraging her further. He tried to push
her harder, but she resisted, and as lightly as she could manage, she
licked his lips teasingly.
He growled deep in the back of his throat
and grabbed her head, crushing their lips together. Lexi opened her
mouth allowing their tongues to connect and responded with her own
enthusiasm. Wrapping her arms around his neck, she relaxed into his
He broke from her lips to kiss across her jawline, and she happened to take a glance at the alarm clock.
“Shit!” she cried, rolling off of him. “I have to go.”
He groaned reaching back for her. “Are you serious?”
