My Monster - TO BE PUBLISHED
"You want to sleep with me but you don't actually like me or even want to know me," he says.
Oh, wow. Bull's eye. I have to give him credit, though. I didn't think he could discern so much. Most boys won't notice how they're being seduced, all they'll care about is the final score. "You almost sound hurt about it," I say.
"That's because I AM hurt."
He grins and stares me down. My knees become weak under his gaze. "I'm hurt enough to want to win you over. Whenever you look at me like all you see is sexy flesh, I just want to rip you away from where you're comfortable so I can watch you come undone."
