Jeremy felt those electric sensations run over him. His heartbeat accelerated the moment she kissed his hand. He gave a big grin as the words she said to him sank into his head. This was the woman for him, he was totally sure, the woman he wanted to spend eternity with. “I should punish you for last night.” A smile flittered across his face.
“Punish?” Purity repeated. Those were not the words she wanted to hear and they were coming from Jeremy. She left his arms and faced him. Staring deep into his beautiful, hazel eyes. “I just said I care about you and you are thinking of punishing me? Please.”

The smile was replaced by an expressionless gaze. He tried his possible best not to laugh and not make any sign that’d make her notice. Deep within him, he felt like laughing at her. She took him seriously. He was gonna pay later on, he knew that.
“Jeremy, please,” Purity didn’t know why Jeremy was bringing punishment into this. What if the punishment was to call off the engagement? But he could never do that. Those eyes were unreadable, his gaze was stern. “OK. I’ll explain. He forcefully took me out there, then he said bad things about you. I was angry at him so, I slapped him on the face. He hurt me when he pressed his body against mine. It was frightening. He really-”
It was happening again. She had been stopped from talking. His lips were all over hers. Sucking out every bit of moisture from it. Loving the taste of them, the kiss was being deepened with passion, she in turn, responded. He pulled her closer, she clung to him, holding his neck.
“Dammit! Ernest!” Tricia furiously screamed into her phone.
“Will you stop screaming?” Ernest impatiently answered. “What is the problem?”
“You ask me what the problem is?” She retorted, flaring up. “We were discussing something really important and you walked out on me. Who does that? A sane person?” She angrily folded an arm.
Ernest dragged in a breath before replying. “It was urgent. If I did not get it done today, I was going to lose it.”
She snorted. “And what is more important than me?”
“It had to do with my business.” His voice was calm.
“Your business? Was that difficult to say before leaving?” She shook her head miserably. If she didn’t take things easy, she might end ip in a psychiatric hospital. She already felt like she was going insane. “Jeremy is still out there with Purity. I can feel it. What’s your plan? I can’t wait anymore. Really can’t. Don’t want your virgin girl to have any more of him, I want him back!”
“Please, calm down and take things easy. I can’t disclose any of that to you on phone. We’ll meet up tomorrow and discuss in details.”
Tomorrow sounded like seven years. It was too far, just too far. “No! Tomorrow’s not convenient for me. Lets meet now! I’m sure you are done with that business of yours. Meet me at that bar!” She demanded like she was his mother.
“Who are young give me orders? Gosh,” he sounded so irritated. “I can see why my cousin broke up with you, s–t!”
The line went dead.
“How dare you! Hello? Hello?” She pulled the phone from her ear. She looked at it and saw that the call had already been disconnected. “b—–d!” She slammed her cell against the wall.
“Tricia, darling,” David Cayson called. “Hasn’t Jeremy Broderick arrived?”
“No, father,” She tried to be calm. “Just called him, office duties. He’ll be here as soon as he’s done.”
“That’s great!” David replied excitedly. “Can’t wait to meet your fiance.”
“Did you like your punishment?” Jeremy drawled, excitedly.
Purity gazed at him dumbfounded. “You mean the kiss was the, my punishment?”
“Mmm-hmm.” He cackled with laughter.
“Jeremy! You scared me. You just wanted to tease me, right? Seriously?”
“You should have seen your face. You were about to cry. I should have taken a picture.” He was full of smiles.
“Is that so? You didn’t even listen to a word I said.” She thought of what to do.
He continued laughing.
She grabbed the glass she had earlier handed him and spilled the remaining content on his shirt. “Serves you right.” She got off the chair and ran off.
“I’m coming for you,” he called after her.
