Beauty & the Beast Ch. 05byAccentsNTattos©
Troy felt a body move next to him and he came to two conclusions. One, last night wasn't a dream and two, he and Anamaria shared an explosive night of pleasure and he for damn sure wouldn't mind doing it again.
Then it registered to him that he wasn't in his apartment. He was half way across town and he had to work today. He sat up in Anamaria's bed and slowly removed her hand from off his waist. He heard her whimper a bit as she turned on her side and Troy took that moment to slowly slip out of the bed.
His night vision wasn't the greatest so he struggled to find his clothes and he then remembered that he had pulled them off in the bathroom last night. He crept out of the room and entered the bathroom. He flipped on the light and saw his clothes in a pile by the tub.
He bent down and picked up his boxers and slid them up his legs. As he started to pull on his jeans he heard footsteps approaching the bathroom door. He turned and saw Anamaria standing there. She looked disappointed as she pushed her hair behind her ears.
"Uh, I have to get back to my apartment to get ready for work." he told her.
"It's three in the morning. You have like six hours before you have to be in." she scoffed.
Troy didn't want her to think he was running out on her because he was definitely not letting her go anytime soon. He figured he should have checked the clock before getting out of bed.
"Oh, I didn't check the time." he said softly.
"Were you at least going to say good-bye?" she asked while watching him pull his pants up.
Troy nodded. "I wasn't going to leave you like that. If you haven't caught on, this whole spending the night with a girl is kind of new for me. I've never really had a girlfriend so I don't have much experience."
Anamaria sympathized and then the frown on her face disappeared and turned into a sly smile. "Well, it didn't seem like you needed lessons to remember how to please a woman."
Troy smirked and then chuckled. He walked to Anamaria and pulled her into his body. "I guess like driving, there are some things in life you just don't forget how to do."
Anamaria wrapped her arms around Troy's neck as he leaned into her. He caught her lips with his and as they kissed she felt him moving her out of the bathroom. He surprised her when he scooped her off her feet and carried her to bed.
He laid her down and opened her robe to reveal her naked body. He moaned as his eyes scanned the lovely sight. He ran his hand between the valley of her breasts and he saw Anamaria arch her back a bit when his scarred fingers reached the top of her stomach.
Troy removed his hands and replaced them with his lips. He pecked at the soft brown flesh and heard soft whimpers from Anamaria. Her hands dove into the short hair on his head and when he reached her hairless mound he inwardly laugh as Anamaria spread her legs for him and literally pushed his head toward her hot core.
He licked at her delicate folds in a slow manner at first to tease her. Her cries became louder when his tongue came into contact with her clit. He gently took the bright pink nub between his teeth and when he began to nibble Anamaria began to scream.
"Please Troy! I want it, I need it." she moaned.
She sharply raised her hips up causing Troy to lose grip on her clit. His top teeth ran down her slick opening and as he lapped at her pussy he jammed two fingers inside her. That would have to do for as he wasn't going all the way with her just yet.
Anamaria didn't seem to mind the substitute for his penis and rocked her hips as Troy moved his digits slowly inside her. She felt Troy's lips kiss up her body until her was laying on top of her. She opened her eyes and bit her lip as Troy met eye contact.
"You like that baby." he moaned as he increased the pace of his fingers.
Anamaria swallowed the scream in her throat to answer. "Yes, please don't stop."
And he didn't.
He buried his head in the crook of her neck and blew out erratic breathing as his hands worked her pussy. Troy stopped for a moment to unbutton his jeans and slide them down. Anamaria groaned at the feeling of his stilling inside her but he continued the motion when she felt the skin of his hips against her own. His huge bulge fell onto her leg and Anamaria heard a jerking motion. She lifted her body a bit and saw Troy stroking his hard cock while he brought her to a mind numbing orgasm.
She dropped her body back on the bed and arched her back as her walls contracted wildly around Troy's large fingers. Troy growled loudly in her ear and bit her lobe as his stroking became faster. Seconds laughter she heard a squishing noise and a warm liquid on her leg.
Troy collapsed on top of Anamaria after he came and his sweat dripped onto her chest. When his racing heart calmed down he leaned up a bit to look into her face.
Anamaria smiled up at him and brought her head up to kiss him. "Make sure you pick up some condoms." she said breathlessly when she pulled back.
Troy laughed. "I will. Do you want to join me for a quick shower?"
Troy slowly moved off her body and helped Anamaria off the bed. They walked into the bathroom and Anamaria started the water in the shower stall. She dropped her robe off her shoulders and got inside. Troy kicked his jeans and boxers off and joined her.
Once inside Anamaria closed the door and a small amount of steam surrounded them. Troy watched Anamaria lather soap on a cloth and then began cleaning his body. She washed every part of him including his penis. When she was done she handed him a second cloth and he did the same for her.
When they were done washing the suds from their bodies, Troy and Anamaria stayed in the stall for a bit longer with their bodies pressed up against one another and exploring each other's mouths. Troy felt like he was in Heaven as this beautiful woman showed him that even with his scars he was still worthy of love...and he'd be damned if he let her get away.
An hour after the shower Troy used Anamaria's phone to call a cab so he could head back to his apartment to get ready for work. He promised Anamaria that he would call her as soon as his shift was over. He gave her a sweet kiss on her lips before leaving her bedroom.
He headed downstairs and saw that Dante was up and watching television. He approached the couch that Dante sat on and smiled down at him.
"No cartoons this morning?" he teased.
Dante faked a laugh and flipped his middle finger at Troy. "So, you and my sister had fun last night huh?"
Troy blushed a bit. "You heard?"
Dante chuckled. "Yeah, but don't worry about it. You're both grown."
Troy nodded. Dante then waved Troy over to him. Troy walked around the couch and as he sat down he saw a serious look on Dante's face.
Dante sighed. "Did Anamaria tell you about her ex?"
"Listen, he just got of prison and I can't be around her twenty-four-seven, so I'm hoping we can work together to keep her safe. This dude doesn't know where I live but I bet he's out looking for her."
Troy shook his head. "Anamaria didn't tell me a lot. What's going on with this guy?"
Dante took a deep breath. "Man, he's serious bad news. I want to tell you more but there are some things I think Anamaria should tell you. The bottom line is she's not to be alone until this dude is back in jail. You're off on Saturdays and I'm off on Sundays so that will take care of the weekend when she doesn't have to work."
"What about when she gets off work?" Troy asked in a worried tone.
"I'm off today so she'll be fine but tomorrow I'll have her come by the hospital until one of us gets off." Dante told him.
The sound of a car horn from outside entered the room. Troy knew that was his cab so he stood and headed to the door. He let everything that Dante had told him process through his mind as he left and got into the back seat of the cab.
The drive to his apartment took fifteen minutes and after Troy paid the driver he noticed Kieran's car in the parking lot. The sight of the car just made him angrier as he headed to his front door. When he reached it, he noticed the door slightly ajar.
He groaned as he pushed the door open and slowly entered. His eyes widened as he saw several beer cans scattered across his living room floor and some leading into the dining room. He made his way further into the living room and saw Kieran sitting on couch, or more like passed out.
Troy seethed with anger as he approached Kieran and slapped his face. "Kieran! Get up! What the fuck are you doing here?!"
Kieran opened his eyes groggily and stared at Troy. He smiled and brought his hands up to slap Troy's cheeks in a playful manner.
"It's about time you came home." he hiccupped.
"Kieran I don't have time for your games." Troy groaned as he felt a headache forming.
"I didn't come for games. I actually came to talk to you." Kieran said as he attempted to stand.
He was so drunk off his ass that he fell back on the couch. Troy balled his fingers into fists and silently counted to ten to calm himself. He turned away from Kieran and headed into his bedroom.
"Wait, I have to tell you something. It's about Anamaria." Kieran slurred.
Troy stopped in his tracks at his girl's name and he faced Kieran. "What the fuck do you have to tell me about her?" he stated angrily.
Kieran finally did stand and he made his way to Troy. He placed his hands on his shoulders to balance himself. "She is not what she seems man. She is playing you, that's why she told you those lies about me so that she could get between us."
Troy scoffed and pushed Kieran's hands off his shoulders. The movement caused Kieran to fall slightly backward and he landed on the armrest of the couch behind him.
"She used to do drugs man and she sold her body to pay for them. You don't want a girl like that." Kieran revealed.
Troy sighed. "And you expect me to believe you? After the shit you pulled last night?"
"What did I do?" Kieran asked innocently.
"The car! You trashed it because I took it from you."
"I did no such thing!" Kieran lied. "I was with a real friend last night, the whole night."
Troy laughed. "A real friend?"
Kieran nodded. "Yeah, someone who wouldn't ditch me for some pussy."
"You ditched me for pussy plenty of times!" Troy screamed and then grabbed the bridge of his nose. He couldn't believe he was even arguing with him. "Kieran, just get out and don't come back around me or Anamaria or I'll throw your ass in jail. Do you understand me?"
"Troy, come on. We been through so much and I don't want to lose you as a friend." Kieran practically begged.
"Too late." Troy said firmly.
He approached Kieran and guided him toward the front door. He pushed him out and slammed the door in his face. He then turned to the beer bottle littered floor and shook his head in disgust. He decided to catch a cab to work today because he was not going to leave his apartment looking the way it was. During the cleanup he also called a locksmith to come and fix the broken lock on his door. He was grateful someone could come before he had to leave for work.
He paid the locksmith and by that time his cab had arrived. He got into the backseat and during the drive Kieran's words rang in his head. Could the things he said about his Ana been true? Dante did tell him that there were some things that Anamaria should tell him herself. He didn't want to believe it though. The last thing that popped in his head was how would Kieran found out something like that?
The day was going by fast for Anamaria. She only had an hour left before parents would be arriving to pick up their children. Dante had told her before she left the house that morning that he would pick her up since he was off today.
She was still a bit worried about Zane lurking around and hoped he wouldn't find her. She had moved from the apartment she lived in when she was with him shortly after he had went on the run and he had no idea where Dante lived so she figured she was safe.
"Ana, do you want me to give you a ride home?"
Anamaria was torn from her thoughts as she looked at her co-worker Melissa. She shook her head no. "Thanks for the offer but my brother is coming to pick me up."
Melissa nodded and went to help a four year old pack his book bag. Anamaria watched her and began to wonder what kind of mother she would be. The thought crossed her mind several times while she was with Zane and now that she looked back on her life she was thankful that every pregnancy test she took while she was with him was negative.
Now that she was with Troy she knew that if she didn't want to be a mother anytime soon than she'd better start taking the pill. She made a mental note to go see her doctor as soon as possible. The thought of Troy brought a smile to her face and caused her to get distracted as she was picking up some toys from the play area.
"Girl, are you okay? You just put a dinosaur in some paint." Melissa laughed as she rushed over to clean up the mess.
Anamaria sighed. "I'm sorry I guess I have a lot on my mind."
"What's going on?"
Anamaria smiled. "Well, I met this guy and we went on our first date last night. Mel, he is such an amazing guy!"
Melissa smiled. "You seem like you like him a lot."
Anamaria nodded. "I do. We should double one day."
"Sure, just call me and we'll set up a date."
"Cool, but I guess I should warn you beforehand, my guy was in a bad car accident and he has scars covering his face and body." Anamaria told her.
Melissa shrugged. "If you like him than that's all that matters."
Anamaria hugged Melissa. One by one, parents entered the small class and collected their children. Anamaria only had to wait a few moments before Dante strolled in to pick her up. She waved good bye to Melissa and the two walked outside to Dante's car.
"I need to stop and get some groceries. Do you want me to take you home?" Dante asked as he started the car.
"No, I'll ride with you." Anamaria said and placed on her seatbelt.
Dante nodded and drove to the closest Wal-Mart. He found a parking space near the front and he and Anamaria walked inside. He grabbed a cart and noticed Anamaria heading to the health and beauty aisle, figuring she needed some girlie products.
"I'll be by the food." he called to her back.
Anamaria threw her hand up to wave at Dante and she walked around the aisle to where the condoms were stocked. She would get a few in case Troy forgot. As she scanned the many different kinds of condoms she reached for Trojans, the most widely known brand.
She felt someone come up next to her and she moved slightly to make room for them. She didn't bother looking up as she was checking the small box. The voice that entered her ear made her freeze and made her heart pound inside her chest.
"And who might those be for baby girl?"
Anamaria sucked in a breath of air as she looked up and met Zane's gaze. She wanted to scream and run away but she also didn't want to make a scene. How in the hell did he find her?
"Oh, you don't look happy to see me." he smiled devilishly.
"Because I'm not." she spat.
Zane scanned over her body and noticed she had gained a few pounds since he saw her last. She also had grown out her hair and whoever did the corrective surgery on her jaw made it so the scar was hardly visible. He reached up to grab her face but she jerked her body back before he their skin came in contact.
"Don't." she growled.
"Baby girl, don't be like that. I only tracked you down because you had something that belonged to me." Zane said in a low voice.
"I don't have anything that belongs to you." Anamaria stated while slowly creating a bigger gap between the two.
"Sure you do baby girl." Zane spoke and in an instant he closed the gap. He flung his right hand forward and he forcefully cupped her sex.
Anamaria gasped and pushed his hand away. "You've got a lot of nerve! After all the shit you put me through, you don't have the right to touch me!"
He was so lucky they were in public; otherwise she would've reached inside her purse. Anamaria stomped past Zane to get as far away from him as possible but she was jolted backwards when Zane grabbed her arm and pulled her back. She felt her back hit the shelf the condoms were stacked on.
Zane moved close to Anamaria and growled in her ear as he spoke. "You can try and forget what we had but we both know this body is mine and I don't care what I have to do to make you remember that."
Anamaria winced at the tight grip Zane had on her arm. She felt a tear leave her eye and roll down her now flushed cheeks. She looked up at Zane and was surprised when he dipped his head and kissed her softly on her lips.
"I'll be coming for you tonight."
He spoke the words like he was picking her up for a date but Anamaria knew better. One, he knew where Dante lived or if he didn't he would surely follow them when they left the store. And two, he wanted her to go back to her old life which wasn't going to happen.
Anamaria watched Zane leave the store and when he was out of sight she rushed to find Dante. She had no idea what Zane was going to do but she didn't want to stick around to find out.
Troy looked at the clock on the wall inside Elmyra's room. It was a quarter to five and Troy had decided to visit his patient before he left for the day. He watched Elmyra's chest rise and fall and he checked her vitals for the third time since he walked in the room.
He was pleasantly surprised when he saw Elmyra open her eyes when he leaned over her bed. Her bright brown eyes met his and he saw the ends of her mouth form a smile beneath the face mask she wore.
"Hi." he whispered.
She mouth back hello and Troy moved to head to the door to call for a nurse. He stopped when he felt a hand on his. He looked down and saw Elmyra keeping eye contact with him.
Troy moved closer to the bed. "Shh, don't try and talk. Save your energy. Nurse!"
A few moments later a young woman entered the room and saw Elmyra moving and then looked to Troy. "She's awake?"
The nurse called for another nurse who had also been looking after Elmyra. She rushed in and was shocked that the elderly woman was awake.
"Praise God!" she clapped her hands.
"We'll keep her here a few more days and we should be able to get her into a regular room." the first nurse said.
Troy smiled and patted her on the shoulder on his way out the room. He left the room and headed into his office where he logged out of the main frame and left the hospital. He used a payphone outside of the hospital to call Anamaria. He was surprised that he got her voice mail. He left a quick message and then called a cab to his apartment.
When arrived they were halfway to his apartment Troy made the driver turn around and head to Dante's house. He kept replaying Kieran's words from earlier in his head and he had to find out the truth. The driver waived the current meter and restarted it as he turned the cab around. Troy was thankful and gave him a large tip when he pulled in front of Dante's house.
Troy got out of the cab and walked up to the front door. He rang the doorbell and waited for a minute. When no one came to the door he rang it again. He remembered Dante telling him he was off today and Anamaria had gotten off work four hours ago so where were they?
After a five minute wait Troy walked to a nearby convenience store and used the pay phone there. He called Anamaria and this time she picked up.
"Troy? Where are you?" she whispered.
Troy raised an eyebrow. "Outside the seven-eleven by your brother's house. Why are you whispering?"
"Baby, listen don't go back to my brother's house or your apartment. I'm with the police right now. I need for you to go to a hotel and call me when you get there. Make sure no one is following you and if they are just come straight to the police department."
