Part Nineteen-

One week later

Rue stood in the middle of the fourth storage room. The lock had been an example of simplicity. He’d been picking locks of that caliber since he was ten. The instant he’d seen the four locks, he knew he wasn’t going to find the files in them. Vlatko was too smart a man to trust in the secrecy of the underground chamber, so the killer wouldn’t leave anything he really thought was valuable.

With a frustrated sigh, he put all the supply boxes back where he’d found them. Rue shut the door, locking it before he made his way down the hall to the main living room. The fifth locked door drew his attention. He hadn’t found a way to unlock it yet, but he still had two more weeks to figure it out.

“Vlatko must trust you an awful lot.”

The voice coming from down the hall made Rue jump. He turned to see Stargazer smiling at him.

“I think he trusts his safeguards more than me.” Rue saw the interest flare in the pale man’s eyes and an idea rushed through his head. “Vlatko is out with a hunting party. Would you like a drink?”

He turned and sauntered to the main living room. He made sure that with each step, his hips swayed, drawing Stargazer’s eyes. He would use the lust Vlatko’s partner felt for him to get information.

“Made yourself at home, I see.” Stargazer moved up behind Rue and brushed a hand over his ass.

Rue pushed back, just enough to encourage the man. He reached up to pull a bottle and some glasses out of the cupboard. He poured them shots of whiskey and began the seduction.

The water ran over Rue’s aching body. He braced his hands against the wall and he let his head hang down. He banged his fist against the tiles.

“What a fucking waste of time.”

Rue grabbed the soap and started to scrub the sweat off his skin. He should have known Vlatko wouldn’t have told Stargazer anything. The man didn’t even know what he was delivering to Vlatko.

“Did Stargazer tell you anything?”

Rue whirled to see Vlatko leaning against the door frame, arms folded and a quizzical look on his face.

“No.” Rue frowned. “I was an idiot to think you’d be stupid enough to tell him anything.”

“Ah, maybe, but you’ve made his year.” A smile appeared and Vlatko began to strip slowly.

Rue turned to face the man. “You’re okay with what I did?”

Shrugging, Vlatko stepped out of his pants and joined Rue in the shower. “I’m not surprised that you did it. Take advantage of every opportunity presented to you. If I was as pretty as you, I’d use what the gods gave me.”

“You’re not pretty. You’re fucking gorgeous.” Rue wrapped his hand around the back of Vlatko’s head and brought the man’s mouth down to his.

Rue nibbled along Vlatko’s bottom lip. His hand tangled in dark hair covering the big man’s head. The bells and beads at the ends of Vlatko’s braids chimed as they hit together. Vlatko’s hands cupped his ass and squeezed.

Rue grimaced and pulled back a little. Vlatko stroked his rough palms over Rue’s sore muscles and gave a chuckle.

“Stargazer is a little rough.”

“You could have warned me.” Rue pinched Vlatko’s ass to give him a taste of pain.

“Now how was I supposed to know that you’d actually seduce the man?” Vlatko licked a drop of water off of Rue’s shoulder.

“Hey when I put my mind to it, I can seduce anyone.” Rue leaned back enough to allow Vlatko more skin to lick.

“Oh, I don’t doubt your ability. I just thought I’d scared Stargazer enough for him to leave you alone. You’re a prize worth risking his life for, I guess.” Vlatko flicked Rue’s nipple with the tip of his tongue.

“You’re not going to kill him.” Rue groaned as heat rushed through him.

“Mmm…” Vlatko didn’t answer him.

“Fuck.” Rue arched, thrusting his cock through Vlatko’s rough palm as the man stroked him.

Vlatko left Rue’s right nipple alone for a second to shoot him a grin. “That’s what I’m planning on doing to you.”

Rue’s eyes rolled and he shivered. His ass was sore from the pounding Stargazer gave him. His cock jerked as he imagined how much pain and pleasure he was going to get when he rode Vlatko’s thick pole.

“I can’t wait.”

    Cathy, I don’t think Rue will break Vlatko’s heart. I think we’ll all be surprised at what happens between these two guys. 🙂

    I’m happy you stopped by.

    I struggled with this scene for a long time last night. Rue kept telling me what he was going to do and I kept saying I didn’t want him to do it because it would hurt Vlatko. Like you said though, Rue didn’t stray from the character he is. His personality didn’t change. 🙂

    I know that it might seem like Rue’s cheated on Vlatko and I’m thrilled to see that you love my characters as much as I do, but Rue’s only doing what he’s always done. He took money and has a job to do and like any good thief, he’ll do what ever he has to get the job done.

    Rue better not break Vlatko’s heart- so far he’s done exactly what Vlatko predicted..hmmm

  5. Paige Burns says:

    I like that Rue’s not straying from who he is, I think it will make his eventual “fall” even sweeter. Plus, I’m all about slutdome! 😉

    *drums fingers on desk waiting for Thursday*

  7. Celia Kyle says:

    Noooooo!!! Say it ain’t so TA! *pout* I love Vlatko to death and now Rue’s gonna and hurt my big hunk-a-man… 🙁


  8. T.A.Chase says:

    I’m not totally sure Vlatko isn’t a little sad that Rue seduced Stargazer. I guess we’ll find out on Thursday. But I do get the feeling that Vlatko understood why it was done and that he can’t change Rue’s character overnight or over a week. And like he said, who’s to say Vlatko wouldn’t do the exact same thing if he were ‘better looking’ (his

    Glad Vlatko took Rue’s
    “questioning” Stargazer, better than I would have. I think I would have been a bit sad. Keep writing please, I love to check and see what is happening 🙂
