Let Me Help You, Good Doctor Ch. 02byMyanlass©
The table burst into raucous laughter, well, everyone but Dominique. She just smiled absentmindedly, scraping her nails down the side of her cup. Every since Nik took his seat at the table, he had been the life of the party- but pure hell for Dominique. He was winning them both over making them laugh at his corny jokes. Dominique smiled and threw in a laugh every once in awhile while Nik kept his fingers laced through hers. She already had a couple of drinks and was feeling a slight buzz, but nothing could mask the fact that her plan was just not working. Jason wasn't jealous; he liked Nik.
"Nik you're a riot!" Candi said flipping her perfect hair over her shoulder. "So, how did you and Dominique meet?" she asked, and Dominique gulped slightly.
"Well, Scott is one of my best friends, he convinced me to come down here and when I met his wife Katrina, I met Dominique as well."
"Was it love at first sight?" Candi swooned.
"Actually, no." Nik said surprisingly.
"What can I say, he got under my skin." Dominique announced, smiling at Nik. He just cleared his throat in response.
"Exactly, she was a little shy at first and she put up a good front about not wanting to date me. I would come to her office, send her flowers and sometimes I would get them back! But on Valentine's Day, she finally gave in and that's the end of the story." He smiled, caressing the back of her hand and that's when she felt her skin tingling.
She wasn't sure what was going on or why he had such a blatant effect on her. As she stared at him she decided to slow down on drinking. Nik was actually really good at this pretending thing, she hated to admit it, but he was. She almost felt like he was actually with her because he liked her. Quickly she shook that feeling away and turned her attention back to Jason and Candi's smiling faces.
"Well, we are happy that you two found each other. We were just asking Dominique if she could help in planning the wedding and she agreed."
"Really?" Nik said, gazing at Dominique before looking back at Candi.
"Yes, and Jason said he wanted to get married here so we will be here a little bit longer before going back home."
"Wow, that's so amazing. Imagine getting married in your home town and your best friend is planning it. That must be a really great feeling!" Nik milked and Dominique dug her nails into his meaty thigh under the table.
Nik flinched slightly but still kept the smile on his face. "Well Nik, we know that you are a police officer and that you used to be in the military. What else do you have planned?" Jason asked with demanding look on his face.
"Just to live my life mainly, and now that I have Dominique I hope to take this as far as it can go."
"Really?" Jason said giving Nik another once-over that didn't go unnoticed.
"Really." Nik challenged back, pulling Dominique a little closer.
"I'm just shocked that she is dating someone; she never told me about you." Jason countered.
"Well, I know how much of an important friend you are to her and maybe she didn't want to tell you unless she knew that this was real between us." Nik quickly responded with that smile.
"Be nice now, Jason." Candi said as he turned to her and gave her a light smile.
Jason had looked concerned... did that really just happen? Dominique thought to herself. That sounded like jealousy! Dominique planted a small kiss on Nik's cheek for extra emphasis. Once he felt those soft lips on his cheek, Nik wanted to chuckle slightly at the innocent gesture. That was so much like the Dominique he always saw, but he was intent on seeing the real her when he got her home later that night.
They stayed at the restaurant for thirty more minutes and then Nik made some crack about putting Dominique to bed that made her laugh nervously but shoot him an evil glare. Nik rode with Dominique since he intentionally took a cab to the restaurant. She was hoping that he would have forgotten that whole payment thing, but she knew that night was going to be day one of it.
They drove in silence and she had a million thoughts running through her mind. What was Nik going to make her do and what was going through Jason's head right now? Her insides were jumping as she thought back to the look on his face when Nik showed up. Maybe there was something to this whole making Jason jealous thing.
"So, I take it that's not your ex-boyfriend?" Nik finally asked as she was pulling into the apartments.
"No, he is a good friend that I grew up with."
"And what is the point of all this?" Dominique sighed to herself, "Like I told you before, I want to make him jealous and not appear alone."
"I thought it was just going to be for one day." He said, turning his head to get a good look at her.
"Me too, but apparently he wants to get married here; go figure." She shrugged.
He nodded, "You do realize that means my stipulation extends."
That made her jerk her head towards him and she pushed her glasses on her face, "So I recall."
"Now don't look like that cupcake, you may like what I do." Oh how much she hated his cocky attitude and smile.
She got out of the car and walked off without looking back at him. She wanted to just slap the taste out of his mouth when he said things like that. For some reason, it made her feel like one of the many girls he had lined up waiting for him. She entered her apartment and started to shut the door when he pushed it back open, leaning against the door frame with his hands in his pockets. She saw that he had unbuttoned his jacket on his walk from the car. As she stared at him, she thought that it had to be a crime for a man to look like sex. She swore he was so smug because he knew exactly how sexy he looked. She hated him for that, she thought crossing her arms in front of her chest.
"If I didn't know any better I would say that you were trying to get out of our little agreement. Running in the house like that." He finally said looking her body up and down.
"I was not running. It was cold and I wanted to get to my apartment."
He nodded his head and walked inside the apartment, right past her not even acknowledging her at all. She should have expected this sort of rudeness from him.
"Look Nik I don't have a lot of time right now, I have a lot to do for tomorrow."
"I understand." He said taking off his jacket and draping it over the back of the couch.
"Yes, I was thinking that maybe we have a little meeting tomorrow and you tell me things about you just in case your boy wants to give me a pop quiz about you."
She smiled. Finally he gets it. "Thank you Nik, I knew you would understand."
"There is just one thing."
"Sure." She said putting her hands on her hips.
"Take down your hair and take off your clothes." He said leaning against the couch and Dominique's jaw instantly dropped.
"Ex- excuse me?" She stammered.
"Take down your hair and take off your clothes." He said again, this time very slowly.
"Have you lost your mind?" her voice strained as she fought for control.
"Have you forgotten about the deal? You do what I want at anytime I want it."
"It's late." She reiterated.
"It's anytime." Nik countered.
"Oh for goodness sake." She said crossing her arms.
"My rules or your little friend learns how his best friend lied about having a boyfriend." She narrowed her eyes but the smirk on his face told her that he would do it.
She let out a big huff of air and reached for her glasses to set them on the table. She took her hair down, shaking some of the curls loose as he watched the dark raven hair frame her face. She looked good with her hair down; it reminded him of a lion's mane, framing her face making her look very exotic. He cleared his throat as she slipped her jacket off and his eyes narrowed in on the tops of her breasts, which were peeking out the top of her dress. She was getting frustrated and wanted to protest but when she locked eyes with Nik she saw something in them that she had never seen in a man before. His eyes darken slightly and watched her so intently. She didn't know why but the way he looked at her unlocked something inside of her. She felt sexy and wanted under his gaze.
She reached for the side where her zipper was and slowly eased it down locking her eyes on him. Maybe she was more buzzed from her drink than she thought. Nik spread his legs slightly watching as she turned her back to him. He felt his cock twitch as she slowly slid the dress down her body revealing inch after inch of her smooth caramel skin. Oh this was only the beginning he thought, as he watched her throw of her inhibitions out the window. He could really appreciate the delicious curve of her back leading down to her ample bottom. His hands itched to grab on to it, to fit her body against his. He shook his head quickly; he had to get a hold of himself.
She slowly turned back around to face him and he saw her two globes encased in a strapless black lace bra with matching boy shorts. Now that's a sight that would make a man come home every night, Nik thought to himself.
"Come here." He instructed and she paused slightly, "Come on."
She wrapped her arms around her stomach and slowly walked over to him. She was starting to feel a little self-consciousness and cold. Why was he torturing her like this? She stood right in front of him and he pulled her closer until she stood in between his legs. His sudden touch made her body tense and he smiled to himself. "One thing about being my girlfriend, even pretending, you have to get used to my touch." He said and Dominique couldn't help but let out that breath she was holding.
His fingers slowly grazed her folded arms leaving a burning trail on her skin. He went all the way down to her hands pulling them apart from her body. He pulled her hands to rest on the top of his shoulders and his fingertips caressed her arms. She didn't know why but his touch was driving her mad. It was a light teasing touch then it would get a little more urgent. Even though she was enjoying what he was doing, it still made her shiver and jerk slightly. "See, you need to relax. You are going to make lawyer boy a little bit suspicious." He said as his hands moved down to her waist.
Dominique still felt like her body was shivering especially the way he was staring into her eyes. She looked into face and she had a sudden urge to kiss him. The taste him again; in truth she had the urge to kiss him ever since Valentine's Day. She wanted to feel the urgency of his lips. She took a deep breath and wrapped her arms around his neck, bringing herself closer to him. She wasn't sure if it was the drink but she was enjoying this more and more. The feel of his hands all over only heightened the soft fire that was building inside of her. It was one of the first times she didn't plan something, or over think it. She just wanted a little taste she thought to herself, as she leaned in and lightly brushed her lips against his.
He took in a sudden breath as she pulled away taking her swee t lips with her. He grabbed the back of her head and pulled her back down, firmly planting his lips against hers. Dominique finally relaxed against him as she pushed her tongue inside his mouth, taking in as much as possible.
She tastes so good, he thought as he held her head firmly to his and her fingers rubbed the back of his neck. She moaned into his mouth as she nibbled on his bottom lip, driving him absolutely insane. He wasn't sure what was going on with him; he had his share of passionate women in the past but for some reason Dominique took the cake.
He pulled away quickly and looked up at her which was an even more dangerous thing to do. Her eyes were clouded and her lips were puffy, silently begging to be kissed again. Get a hold of yourself Nik, he thought as he stood to his full height putting on his usual nonchalant face.
"That was good, but I have to go." He said walking past her.
Dominique quickly blinked away the spell and turned back to him, "Go? Now?" she asked.
"Yes, you have to go to work in the morning and so do I. Don't worry, innamorata, I will be back for you real soon." He smiled and she sighed to herself but quickly shook it off. She was not going to get caught up in his spell.
"Good night." She said wearing a disgusted look on her face.
"Ciao bella." He said closing her door behind him.
Dominique leaned her back against the door running her fingers through her messy hair. Okay, that was not supposed to feel that good. Still they got nothing accomplished. He didn't ask her any questions. That meant that she had to put her foot down and make him give her information. That's when she realized she was pretty much naked in her house. Damn him, she thought as she scrambled for her clothes on the floor covering her body before going to her room. This was going to be an interesting couple of days.
"I just don't understand what's going on with me doctor. It's like she likes to toy with me." Mr. Davis whined as Dominique looked as if she was really intrigued.
She tried to make this session a little more enjoyable and look like she cared but it was hard because he always talked about the same thing. He had a thing for a co-worker of his who was married and he was married as well but he still was doing stuff and buying her things. She had to constantly remind him that she was married and it wasn't going anywhere but he still kept coming back to Dominique. She didn't mind much because that meant more work for her but one thing she hated to do was repeat herself and she definitely felt like a broken record with him.
"Doctor, what should I do?" he asked looking at her with pleading eyes.
"Well, Mr. Davis, have you ever thought about not even paying attention to her and focus on your wife?"
"My wife? I love her dearly, but she doesn't do anything for me." He sighed, "Not like Angel does."
Dominique wanted to meet this Angel just to see how she got this man so twisted around her finger. She was about to say something else when her door opened and saw Nik walking in with Nicole on his trail.
"Excuse you?" Dominique said standing to her feet.
"Well bella, I thought we could work on some things now that I have the time." He said with that cocky smile.
"I tried to stop him, but he said that you knew he was coming." Nicole tried to explain and Dominique just smiled.
"It's okay Nicole, you can go back." As Nicole left, Dominique turned her attention to Nik, "This is a bad time because I'm at work. I'm so sorry Mr. Davis."
"No, it's alright." He said.
"What's up man? How are you doing?" Nik said sitting on the couch.
"I'm sorry but you cannot stay here. This is a private session."
"Is this your boyfriend?" Mr. Davis asked looking confused.
"We..." she paused looking over at him and he raised his eyebrows, "it's complicated."
"There is someone else coming too, someone named Jason?" Nicole said poking her head in and Dominique shut her eyes tight.
"Don't do anything." She warned Nik and he threw up his hands before she walked out into the waiting room.
Jason was standing there looking at some of the pictures on the wall and when he saw her he turned his attention to her, "Hey sweetheart." He said.
"Hey, what's up?" Dominique smiled.
"I just wanted to give you a list of some things that Candi and I wanted you to include." He said handing over the notepad.
"Great, I was just going to call you about that." Dominique said, "Um, you actually caught me at a bad time because I'm with a patient right now."
"I imagine, but I just wanted to ask a question real quick." He said and she nodded, "That guy Nik. Really?"
"What do you mean?"
"I mean Dominique, he doesn't seem like the type you would go for and this goes beyond the fact of how you feel about interracial dating."
"Well Jason, some things have changed. I mean I have learned to be a little bit more open minded about things." She smiled inside loving where this was going.
"Yea, but you like more of a stable guy. He reminds me of a play boy. I just don't want to see you hurt. You know how much you mean to me." He said reaching to grab her hand.
"Believe me I do," She smiled back, "but I am good where I am at now."
He nodded and looked down at his hand and quickly let go of hers as if it shocked him, "Well, I better get going." He headed towards the door.
"If I need any help, I will call you to let you guys know." She called and he kept going.
It's actually working so far. Jason is actually caring about her dating Nik. She smiled to herself as she turned around and looked at Nicole's smiling face.
"What's that smile for?" Dominique asked and Nicole just shrugged and looked back down at the computer.
Dominique was almost floating on cloud nine till she remembered that Nik is alone in there with her patient. She rushed back in and saw the two men facing each other talking.
"So, I'm telling you it works. Ignore the woman; in fact try it on your wife first. Make it look like you are uninterested. See how your wife reacts to it." Nik said.
"I never thought of that before." Mr. Lawson nodded.
"Wait, what did he tell you?" Dominique intervened.
"I told him what to do to get what he wants." Nik smiled.
"Yea and it was great. I think I am going to try it with my wife at first, just to see if she pays attention and if it works then I will try it with on Angel. Thanks a lot man." Mr. Lawson got up nodding his hand vigorously with a new confidence.
"No, that's not the best thing to do. We need to help you get over her." Dominique said.
"No, it's okay doctor. I will call you back to let you know how it went." He said quickly exiting.
Dominique stood at the closed door, her mouth wide open. She can't believe that this playboy gave her client a loaded weapon to use on that woman that she has been trying for months for him to get over. She narrowed her eyes and slowly turned back to Nik who was stretched out on the couch with his hands behind his head.
"You asshole, do you realize what you done?"
"Yea, I think I helped out a client, does that mean I get part of your pay?"
"No, you just pretty much condoned that man to cheat on his wife with another woman."
"No, I didn't. I didn't say anything about cheating on his wife."
"Yes, you did. You just..." that's when it dawned on her everything that Nik actually said, "You told him to try it on his wife."
The cocky smiled appears, "I talked to him a little bit and the man actually is madly in love with his wife but she doesn't pay attention to him. The only reason he is infatuated with this other woman is because she gives him the attention he wants from his wife. I told him to try it on his wife at first, she would wonder what's going on and why is he acting like this and will do anything to get his attention back on her. That includes giving him the attention he wants. You watch when he gets that from her, he is not going to give another thought to that other woman."
Dominique was impressed, she admit she never thought about that, but then again, she will never tell Nik that, "That will never work." She said crossing her arms across her chest.
"You just watch and see what will happen. You can tell that's all the man wants."
"Whatever." She said moving over to the desk.
Nik walked over to her and stood behind her, placing his hands on her hips. She flinched slightly but relaxed into his touch, leaning her head to her shoulder. His hands moved from her hips to her waist, enjoying the moment a little too much.
"I see you are getting better." He whispered and his hot breath tickled her neck, making her shiver.
"I am trying. I wasn't really expecting that." She whispered back trying to fight off the heat spreading through her body.
"So, I'm going to need some more information about you." He whispered against her neck and her body shivered all over.
