“Okay, while I’m away, if you should need anything, just call Joanna, my secretary.” Cat watched Eric from her position in her bed, the same bed they had just shared and not for sleeping. At this moment, Eric was dressing to leave on yet another business trip. The plane that was to take him to London would be leaving within the hour from Sydney airport... but did he look hurried like any normal person would if their plane was leaving so soon, no! not Eric. He could arrive within 15 minutes of the plane taking off and it still wouldn’t matter, because the jet was his and he was the only passenger on the flight. Cat rolled her eyes. This trip, like so many recently, had come up at the last minute,. It seemed to be increasing to the point Cat hardly saw Eric anymore. She observed Eric with a sinking heart as he pulled up his grey tailored pants, they fitted his gorgeous body perfectly, then again they should being tailormade cost more than she made in a week ..... maybe more like a month. The fading August sun shimmered through the blinds in the large bay window, washing his beautiful toned body in a healthy glow. God! he had a great body, lush thick black hair that at this moment was still wet from the shower, which they had shared before ending up in bed together again. Eric has one those picture perfect faces that the camera loved, all sharp lines and hard angles, a strong jaw line. Even his nose was perfectly straight having never broken it in his youth like so many young men did by getting into fights or playing sport. His eyes she found his best feature, she could just stare into his eyes forever, they had a beautiful combination of blue and grey. She had sometimes caught a glimpse of his boyish features but only when he smiled or laughed. Sitting back against the bedhead Cat sighed as she took in his broad shoulders, narrow waist, lick-able all over tan, rock hard stomach with a thin trail of hair down the center of his abdomen. Oh she remembered the times she had loved to play with the hair while he was asleep teasing him slowly awake and then into full arousal. Tearing her eyes away from his body while he finished dressing Cat looked down at her fingers playing with the white sheets, blinking back tears.... why had she let this happen again? Today she had told herself that they wouldn’t just end up in bed, having sex the first time they had a chance to find a flat surface. Cat silently laughed. Who was she kidding they didn’t need a flat surface anywhere would do, once the urgency of the moment hit them. But they needed to talk and she had been so sure she could stop the tornado of lust to finally just communicate. They really needed to talk, she had to be strong... things just could not go on this way! The only thing they seemed to share now was a bed, for a few hours when he could spare the time. Not that they really had a sharing relationship to start with...but things had been better in the beginning hadn’t they? Granted there was no love involved on Eric’s side and he had warned her not to full in love with him because she didn’t picture into his future, how cold was that? Anyone would wonder after hearing that she had still given herself to him. Insanity maybe! No she couldn’t say that really, all she could say was her feeling for Eric had overwhelmed she, to the point that she needed him and dam the consequences. They would share each other exclusively until the lust wore itself out. Eric didn’t keep any women in his life for longer an six months, until her, maybe that was the problem maybe he was bored. After eight months, he was over her! He had to be, right? But that didn’t explain his urgency and lust when he did see her. Then again Eric was a highly-sexed male and after not having sex for the times he was away maybe it was just getting rid of sexual tension. Oh! Cat hated that idea... was she just an outlet for his needs. What they had was a pleasurable coupling of two people enjoying each other while they where both happy. She wasn’t happy anymore to be honest with herself she hadn’t been for sometime! Maybe somewhere in her delusional brain she had like most women in her situation that maybe if she was really lucky and everything Eric needed.... one day he would realise he loved her and couldn’t live without her. In the beginning she had envisioned the just being with Eric would be enough, that she would be happy. She could see now that was just a pipe dream. It was tearing her apart, it was so hard to be in love with someone that didn’t return your feelings, well didn’t know about her feelings to start with she had never told him because she was scared that she would push her out of his life so fast that the door would hit her on the ass on the way out. So she had kept her feelings to herself. She really had been kidding herself for eight months that things would be alright. What a joke that was... things hadn’t gotten better, if anything they had gotten worse. How had things gone so dreadfully wrong.... “Cat! Have you been listening to a word I’ve said?” Eric demanded pulling her out of her internal thoughts. “Yes....” taking a deep breath, having words with Eric was never easy. He had a way of tying you up in knots or maybe that was just her “ Eric, for one thing I do know who your secretary is, I see and talk to her more than I do with you of late and I was at her wedding last month if you remember? It was the same wedding you yourself were invited to but at the very last minute cancelled because of some glitch in London.” Eric frowned at her abrupt change of mood. But that’s just it your beautiful stupid man this is how I have been feeling and like the good arm candy that I am I haven’t said anything to you. But this was aid silently inside my head not ready to voice all just yet. Hoping that maybe I’m more than just arm candy.... huh now she really was living a fairytale. If Eric had felt anything for her at all in the eight months they had been together he would have said something by now and he wouldn’t be spending less time with her he would try and spend more time wouldn’t he? If only Eric trusted his very capable staff to do their jobs handling any problems that arise. Eric demanded the best and expected his staff to work long hard hours. Even though his staff are the best at what they do, it appeared that no matter the problem or issue Eric was the one that had to be there to fix it. As Eric’s company Logan holdings inc had expanded, he had obtained and trained some of the best people in the world, they had to be the best in their field, Eric wouldn’t except anything less... Due to the high demand on their time Eric paid them well to keep them loyal. He had employees willing and more than able to take responsibility for major operations, he still had not delegated some of his workload, one of the companies, a computer software designer, had been expanding rapidly in the last four months so Eric was spending more time at work and less time with her. She had not seen him at all last week, if he hadn’t been at the office until late at night, you could find him dining with clients or other important people within his business network that only had an importance to his future and ongoing business concerns. When she did see him before that, it was for a brief time in bed before he would leave to go back to work, he no longer stayed the night like he would have done in the beginning, even today had been a stolen few hours before he had to leave in between work and going to the airport. There was a time when they would have talk until the early hours of the morning on the weekends when they both didn’t have to get up to work the next day. They had even taken the odd walk in the park on a beautiful day or relaxed over dinner, music and wine. Those times appear to be gone forever. Eric finished dressing, he rounded the bed to her side, sat down facing her, his powerful thigh pushed against her softer one heating her blood... she shifted away. “So what bought on this sudden bad attitude?”Eric asked watchfully reaching out to pick up her long red hair laying on the sheet that she was clutching against her breasts, this action send even more heat to her centre. How easy was she? They had already made love.... no call it for what it is, had sex twice already and here she really getting hot over again with him playing with just her hair! Cat furiously glared at him, he was treating her like some naughty child. She pulled away from his hand. She pushed even more against the bedhead, holding the white sheet tighter to her breasts. How can this Genius man be so stupid? How can he be so blind? But this wasn’t a business deal this was personal, Cat thought to herself before saying in an even tone “ I really don’t think you want to hear what I have to say, you never do because it’s against what you want to hear, so there for in your eyes not really important, so you don’t listen......I really think you should go you’ll be late for your flight.” “Cat.....” But before Eric had a chance to say anymore, Cat cut him off. “ Don’t Cat me like that Eric, it will not work anymore, I’m not happy with the way things are.... I have tried to verbalise how I feel to you, all you seem to do is override them or use sex to keep me quiet. We don’t love each other.” oh! how that lie hurt but she will keep her pride if it was the last thing she did...” maybe that’s what I need to look for. I want so much more than we are giving each other. Eric, Sex on the run is just not for me! there is no point continuing this..... this affair” Cat took another deep breath holding back tears she would not cry, she would not cry... she told herself over and over again hoping that, if she told herself this it would some how keep the tears at bay. She had just told this man so many lies because she know if this kept going, he would kill her slowly with his indifference. Tears formed around her eyes even though she tried to hold them there. “Come on baby, don’t be silly everything is fine, I’ve just been working a bit to hard lately that’s all...” Eric looked at his gold watch before adding “ ... look, I can’t talk now, I really have to go, we will talk when I get back”. Seeming to be convinced that she would be happy with this he stood up preparing to leave. A single tear rolled down her cheek....“ Don’t bother coming back Eric, I meant what I said about us being over, I can’t go on like this.” “Now Kitty.....” this bought a rumble of anger from Cat’s throat “No” she shouted “ no ... I mean every word Eric, forget the keys I gave you they will not work after tomorrow, I’m having the locks changed” He frowned “Cat..” he tried again not silly enough to use the stupid nickname after the last eruption it had caused But she still didn’t give him a chance. “ OUT” she cried, she really couldn’t take it anymore. So she picked up his pillow and threw it at his head. It missed .... shit “I’ll see you when I get back, we will talk then.” “No. We. Will. Not.” she screeched back, but all she was yelling at was the closed bedroom door. He was gone seconds later as she heard the front door click closed. Cat curled herself into a tight ball as the first sobs rocked her slim body.
