“This is a nice place,” Jay said.
Richard served them out putting pancakes on each other their plates.
“Let’s get down to business,” Richard said. He picked up his fork and got a bite ready. “I want you, Temperance, and the way you lit up in my arms, you want me as well. Listen.” She went to speak, so he silenced her with one word and a look. “I want you, and so does Jay. You’re not sure what you want.”
“Do you want me, Tempe?” Jay asked.
She sighed. “I don’t know. This is hard for me, okay? I’ve never considered something like this, not at all.”
“I can appreciate that.” Jay agreed with her.
“You’re both wanting a relationship with me?” She looked from one to the other.
“That is the catch, yes,” Richard said. “We want time of our own, and also sharing time.”
“This is sharing time?”
“Saturday and Sunday, and Wednesday.” She rubbed at her temple, and Richard reached out, taking her hand. “It doesn’t have to be complicated.”
“This is not the norm.”
“Who gives a shit about the norm?” Jay said. “I don’t care what others think. I’ve been using a multiple of women to try and get over you, Tempe. It’s not working. You’re the woman I want, the woman I love. He’s not on the same page as me yet, but he will be. You’re too good of a woman not to love.”
“You’re going to make this harder for me, aren’t you?”
“Yep. I’m not going to make it easy. I know what I want, and you know what you want, and we both want you. You want us,” Jay said.
Richard watched Temperance’s reaction throughout Jay’s little outburst. She was fighting her own beliefs that a relationship was between two people.
She took a bite of the pancake, and he saw it was difficult for her to eat. “I can’t deny that I do want both of you. Everything is happening so fast. Do you think we could slow it down a little?”
“Maybe we could date, and not expect anything. Take a break on the sex, and just, I don’t know, see if this can work. I don’t want to start something that is not right for us.”
“Sure,” Jay said.
Richard sat back. “No sex?”
“I’m not comfortable having sex with either of you, and then with both of you.” She squirmed in her chair.
“It makes you horny though, thinking about us all together,” Richard said.
“What woman wouldn’t? You’re both sexy men. I just, I can’t commit to something like that. I need a little time.”
“We can give you time,” Jay said. “How about tonight? We can all go out on a date. What about going to a couple of clubs?”
Richard liked that idea. “Blake, one of the brothers, he owns some nightclubs, and has a section for special VIPs. I can get us in, and we won’t be disturbed either.”
Temperance bit her lip.
“Think about it, Tempe, we can have some fun. We’re not going to rush into anything. We can take our time getting to know each other,” Jay said.
He saw her thinking about it, and knew he just needed to wait for her to make a decision. She looked so sexy and out of place in the club. Instead of looking like his rather prim and proper PA, she looked like a sexy librarian who had taken turns going through the shelves.
“Okay. I’d like that.”
Richard had no doubt it wouldn’t be long before they moved forward, and he was bedding her. He even believed he’d get along with Jay.
Taking their time to love her, together.
Getting the chance to be with her, Jay could handle that. He may even like Richard. The man was rich, but he seemed somewhat down to earth, and he liked the club, the billionaire bikers club. It was a lame ass name, and he’d advise them to get it changed quickly.
“If you touch her while I’m not there, I will kill you.”
“I thought you were a legal biker?” Jay asked. Temperance had disappeared to the toilet leaving them both alone.
“I am. I wouldn’t be killing you for the club. I’d be killing you for my own pleasure, and I do know how to dispose of a body. It would be so easy today.”
Jay turned to stare at the man that he’d be sharing his own life with. “I don’t do men.”
“Me neither. Don’t flatter yourself, Jay. I have no interest in getting acquainted with you. My interest is in Temperance. I’m not going to lie. I like the thought of watching her come apart in another man’s arms.”
He couldn’t deny it either. Jay had shared a couple of women, and the experience had been great, just not entirely pleasurable. He’d not liked the man he had shared a woman with. There had to be some kind of chemistry, a bond between the men, or at the very least, neither person really gave a fuck, for there to be any real enjoyment.
