“You what!” Alex cursed under his breath, following Mercedes with his eyes.
He couldn’t stop staring, carefully observing anyone who approached her. She frowned as she looked about the room, as if trying to understand why some of his other guests groped each other. The moment a couple caught her watching them, they smiled and waved her over to join. She shook her head and turned her gaze to the floor.
Poor rabbit. Though her innocence is actually refreshing. Did she know she was amongst some of the most notorious Doms of Club Eden? Probably not. He turned to Brian’s wayward submissive, Poppy. “Whatever possessed you to invite her here?”
“I had to, Master Alex. I promised her we’d go out tonight, but forgot about my plans with Master Brian. Besides, I had no idea this was going to be one of those parties. Had I known, I would have switched my outing with Mercedes for another night.”
Instead, you’ve brought her here to be a sitting duck. He shook his head and moved from his carefully selected position in the kitchen doorway into the dining room. The damned woman was headed toward the deck, right into Mitchell’s greedy and sadistic hands. “What the hell would ever possess you to invite a guest who isn’t even in the lifestyle? You’re mad! Yes, she’s curious, but that doesn’t mean you should invite her to a play party.”
The sub stood there, her arms folded across her chest. Her eyes narrowed, and her lips formed a thin line. “No, I’m not crazy. To be honest, I thought this was the best place to keep her. You know, with all you protective Doms in sight. She’s not likely to get pulled away or leave, if we’re here to keep an eye on her. Did I mention she just recently moved back here? And she’s single. She could use this opportunity to meet people in the lifestyle that has her so intrigued.”
There it is. The damned fool thought she would introduce her friend to a new social circle. He understood fully. But this stunt could actually cause more harm than good. He could only imagine what would happen if Mercedes happened upon a spanking scene. This situation offered far too many opportunities to misunderstand their lifestyle, not to mention the potential for allegations of abuse. Since when did I become a bloody matchmaker, much less a babysitter?
