Part Fourteen-

Vlatko tasted the fresh tang of the apple from Rue’s lips. He licked along the plump bottom lip and then sank his tongue in the slender man’s mouth. Keeping the kiss gentle and not letting it get out of hand was tough, but Vlatko wanted to do more than just fuck Rue. Though they would be doing more of that. For the first time in his life, Vlatko wanted to get to know someone just for the sake of knowing them. He had no other reason for it.

Rue’s arms wrapped around his neck and that lean body pushed tighter to him. Vlatko’s hands reached down, cupping his firm ass and lifting to create a better angle for the kiss. When their breath ran out, they pulled apart and stood staring at each other.

“We should head back and grab some lunch. I think we both worked up an appetite.” He grinned at Rue.

“You’re right.” They laughed as Rue’s stomach growled. “So what do you do on this planet?”

Vlatko wasn’t about to tell Rue what he was really doing on this unnamed planet. “I made arrangements with the king. I provided protection for his hunting parties and he leaves me alone.”

“You have to be bored out of your fucking mind.” Rue glanced around as they made their way back to the hut.

“Maybe I like the solitude. It might be a great place for me to contemplate my guilt.”
Vlatko bit back a smile when Rue stared at him in astonishment and then doubled over in laughter.

“I can almost believe the solitude part since you don’t strike me as an extrovert, but don’t try to convince me the guilty conscience bullshit is true.” Rue chuckled.

“Okay, so I don’t wallow in the ‘I’m a horrible person’ pit.” Vlatko opened the hut door and ushered Rue in. He studied the thin man.

He’d given Rue a month to find the files. In his searching, it would only be a matter of time before he found the trap door. Might as well let Rue in on that part of the secret.

“When I’m not doing escort duty, I’m usually down here.’

Pushing the bed out of the way, Vlatko revealed a trap door. He unsealed it and hauled the door up, gesturing for Rue to climb down. He followed.

“Holy shit.”

They stood in a large chamber equipped with every thing a modern house would have on another planet. A kitchen, bathroom and bedroom branched off the main room. Vlatko’s computers lined the far wall.

“Would you like something to eat?” Vlatko reached for the refrigerator door.

“Shouldn’t you bandage that?” Rue gestured to the burn marks on Vlatko’s wrist.

“I’m immune to every known infection and disease. My healing rate is faster than a normal human’s.” He pulled out the fixings for sandwiches.

“Pretty handy.” Rue settled on a chair at the table.

“The I.U.M. spent a lot of money and time on making me into the perfect killer.” He poured glasses of water.

“They must have thrown fits when their million credit machine walked out on them.” Rue took a sip.

Vlatko knew the thief was trying to scope the place out without letting Vlatko know about it. He could see those amber eyes drat from one corner to the other. He wasn’t worried about it. There wasn’t anything Rue would be able to find. “You can throw all the money in the universe into creating a person like me, but all that same money couldn’t get me to stay.” He sat the plate on the table between them.

“True, but what’s to stop them from making another just like you?” Rue grabbed a sandwich and took a bite.

“I’m sure they would but it seems that all their research has disappeared.” He winked at Rue.
A ringing sound came from one of the computers and then a voice blared into the room.

“Hey Iceman, this is Stargazer. You ready for me to land?”

    it might just be a third male to throw into the mix, Celia. Well, I should say it’s a male, but whether he’s going to join in the fun, I don’t know for sure. 😉

    We’re adding another person into the mix…as in…the YML mix? Cause I could SO be into that! Is it a female voice, or a males. You didn’t specify and I’m wondering if we’re finally going to get a TA hero sandwich with a woman as the filling. 🙂
