Greely sipped at the cup of hot cocoa and nibbled on the toast Erol had placed in front of her before he’d returned to the buffet for more food. He’d already been gone ten minutes and she couldn’t help the niggling worry, whispering to her that she should have gone with him to keep him out of trouble. This was a Vegas casino buffet and should have enough food to feed several hungry men, but would they have enough to satisfy one ravenous dragon?
Ravenous was a good word for her man. After getting a look at her new ink the night before, Erol had all but picked her up and carried her back to their room. He’d closed them in and taken her over. She’d been consumed by his lust, his love and his heat. She’d found jackpot after jackpot in this city of sin and none of them had anything to do with money.
“Now there’s a story behind that blush, for sure. Spill it, sister.”
Greely smiled as Karma threw her camo and combat boot shod body into the chair across the table and laid the do tell eye on her. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, my dear.”
“Oh the hell you don’t. You ditched me on the strip with some promise of meeting me in two hours’ time, but never showed up at the predetermined time…”
“Oh Karma I’m so sorr…”
“Don’t interrupt… Thank Goddess! This town is about sin, baby and that man, er, food disposal…how much is he going to eat?”
Greely turned to watch Erol stride purposefully their way. In his arms was a tray stacked with three plates, heaping with food.
“Anyway, that scaly relic is made for sin. Now, be a good girl and don’t Bogart all the dirty deets.”
Greely laughed at Karma’s wiggly eyebrow, knowing she’d not be telling her any of the private details. “Sorry, my dear, some things aren’t meant to share.”
“Share what?” Erol barked as he set the mountains of food on the table.
“The nitty gritty, scaly. From last night, you know, sinful decadence that I can learn from in case I should find my very own dragon slinking around sin city.”
“You won’t.” Erol said in his no nonsense way. “I’m the only dragon in town right now.”
“You know this how?” Karma chuffed.
“I can sense when other dragons are close by.”
“Yep, and I also double as a one-armed bandit, the good kind that is, I just keep giving and giving and giving. Right, Fair one?”
Greely nearly slid out of her chair as Erol’s gaze swung her way, hot and dirty, like it was last night as he took her to the moon and back, repeatedly. “Ah…Jackpot.”
“YES!” Erol jumped from his seat and barreled back to the buffet. The words “more bacon” echoed in his wake.
Karma and Greely looked at each other and laughed in a way one only did in Vegas as they nibbled at the sweets still remaining on Erol’s plates.
