You’re Mine by Penny Brooks novel Chapter 111

Chapter 111


I can tell something is wrong by the way Aisha’s grinning and wiping her mouth and the way that Easton looks ready to hurl.

His face is pale.

And memories of what Blake said in the garage have my head spinning already.

He warned me about her, he said that she’s still hung up on Easton and would do anything short of murdering me to get to him.

I didn’t expect Blake to come right out and confirm all suspicions, I also didn’t expect him to pull me in for a hug and tell me he cared.

I was so confused by the time I made it back into the house that all I could get out was, bed, ready for bed—and the confusion had nothing to do with my feelings for Blake but more or less what the hell sort of game were they both playing.

And why did it feel like they were trying to get both of us alone? Aisha’s still grinning at me.

And I’ve had it.

I stomp over to her and shove her away from Easton so hard she stumbles back and falls against the couch—it’s extra dramatic on her part, but whatever.

“Stay the hell away from Easton! '

“Or what? '

She adjusts her towel.

“You're going to cry? Run me over with your car? You'll never have what we—- '

I slap her.I just go for it.I can't handle it anymore and I don’t have to take it.

The sound of my palm hitting her face goes off like a bomb in that room.

“Listen... '

I barely recognize my own voice.

“I would never keep Easton trapped ina relationship just because I wanted him on my arm, or just because I felt like I deserved him.

I love him.

And if you're what he wants, then even though it would kill me, I'd let him go. '

I back away and turn to a shocked Easton.

“So is this it? Is this what you want, Easton? '

“No, 'he says gruffly, and then pulls me into his arms and kisses the crap out of me, lifting me into his arms so steady, so fast, that all I feel is him—everywhere.

He tears his mouth away long enough to say, “Take a room, sleep outside, hell, burn the place down, I don't give a fuck, just don’ t bother us and Aisha”—he looks over his shoulder, eyes blazing—“We're done.

I don’t want to see you.

I don't want to talk to you.

Forget what I said earlier, your brother would be ashamed of you—I know I am. '

Tears stream down her cheeks as Easton walks us toward our bedroom, kicking the door closed with his foot and tossing me onto the bed before I can protest.

“I'm so fucking sorry, '

he whispers between kisses.

I kiss him back, because I love him, but I’m still so.,.pissed she said all of that.

I know it’s irrational, we weren't together then, but still.

Is that what he was into? What he wants? “I know we'll have to talk about everything that went down. '

“Aw, he’s learning. '

I cup his face and sigh.He smiles.

“He’s a slow learner, but he’s getting there with this whole I love you relationship stuff. '

Tears fill my eyes.

“Well as long as you get there. '

“I know I have a past that I’m not proud of and it keeps coming back to haunt us.

But I swear that’ s not what I want anymore. '

He cups my cheek.

“Maybe I was just searching for something I believed would make me happy, but I could never find it.

Until you.

You’re what makes me happy. '

My heart expands.

“That's so sweet. '

“Also, that slap was really hot, '

he adds.

I laugh because I didn’t expect him to say that.

“Are you serious right now? '

“Made my cock so hard. '
