Tamara's POV
We were tangled in his sheets,sweaty and exhausted but I am sure extremely satisfied...

"I need to go!!!!" I stood from the bed and began picking my clothes from the floor...

"Why so soon???You literally just got here...." Garry cried out..

"We have had s*x,you look happy and I am happy....So what else do you want????"

"To get to know you...Why don't you sleep over????"

"I can't....I never spend the night in a man's place...It starts with a simple sleep over and before I know it you are asking me to move in with you...." I rolled my eyes and slipped into my t-shirt....

I squeaked in alarm when Garry grabbed my arm and pulled me back to bed...
"What are you doing????" I asked breathlessly...

"Just thirty minutes and I will let you go...." He firmly held down on the bed...

"Okay,you don't have to break my ribs Garry Arara....." I chuckled....

"Sorry!!!!" He whispered and freed me from his grip....

"No jeans and t-shirts allowed in this bed....I am n*ked and so should you...." He added.

"But...."
"No buts...." He yanked the T-shirt over my head....

I swear Garry has the ability to compel you to do his biding...

"Happy????" I asked,lying beside him n*ked....
"Very happy...." He moved closer to me and wrapped his arm around my waist....

"So what did Rebecca Raine say?????"He asked....

"I thought she would slap me and warn me to stay away from her family but surprisingly she was calm and very supportive..." I replied still not over the shock that mom Rebecca wanted me to go ahead investigating Nicholas....

"So you are not going to tell Eve??????"

"Yeah,thanks heavens mom Rebecca offered to tell her when we are done with investigations...."

"That's good news...." Surprisingly he kept his intense gaze at me, I don't know what he saw in my eyes that held his unyielding attention...

"Why are you looking at me like that????"

"You have very beautiful eyes, I can't stop looking at them..." 

"Thank you...." I beamed, my breath caught up in my lungs...

"Anytime Miss Tamara..I know I wasn't supposed to but I did some digging and found out Rebecca took you in after your mother's death..It must have been hard..."

This was a very sensitive topic that I hate talking about but with Garry I felt compelled to tell him everything....

"You don't have to tell me if you are not comfortable...." He squeezed my waist making me catch my breath...

I have always preferred not to think about the past but I just found myself telling him...

"After I lost my mom,I was in a really bad place...I didn't want to go to my grandmother's place since it would remind me of my mom  and so Eve suggested I spend that school holiday at their home.. When I told her mother my story, she offered to cater for everything I needed until I finished school and I was stable.She was like an angel sent from above....." I roll my eyes around the room so I as to about the build up emotion inside of me...

"My grandmother was so happy  that someone was there for me other than her....In many ways mom Rebecca has been more of a mom to me than my birth mother..." I bit my tongue hard to fight back my tears...

"Just cry Tamara,don't hold it back...." Garry intertwined our fingers and brought them to his lips...

"I can't....." I pulled my hand away and stood from the bed...

I made a vow that no man would ever see me vulnerable and I wanted to stick to it...

"I should go...." I breathed out, my eyes glossy with tears...

"Why is it hard for you to open up to me????I thought we were past you seeing me as a stranger????"

"I just don't wanna talk about it...." My voice was a little more than a croak...

"Okay!!!!I am sorry for pushing it....." 

"Cool!!!" I said softly and began getting dressed again...

I was scared of how weak Garry made me

. I didn't like how he was breaking the iron walls I had built around my heart...

I have opened up so much to him in days than I have done with anyone in years...All this just made me more and more frustrated....

I liked him so much but I didn't want to be this girl who doesn't think straight because she is in love... Love is like a fire that burns you when you least expect...

I don't wanna follow my mom's footsteps...

"I wanna take you out tomorrow...." Garry stood from the bed and towered over me confidently...
"Please say yes!!!" He stroked the side of my face...

"Let's take things slow Garry, right now let's just stick on pleasuring each other...."

"It's just a date..." His brows steadily drew together as he held my gaze steadily...

"I am not ready to take that big step...." I said irritatedly and stepped back from his touch...

"I don't understand you....Its not like I am asking you to marry me...." He said fiercely....

"Don't scare me off Garry and I mean it...." There was a warning at the edge of my voice...

"What's wrong with me wanting  you???I really like you Tamara and I need you to let me in...."

"The fears are beyond my control Garry not everyone had a perfect childhood like you...I saw what love did to my mom...It broke her until she was just an empty,hollow,vacant lifeless being...Everyday she hoped,he would leave his wife for her.That he would chose us but she was just lost in her fantasy. I vowed to never let a man make me that vulnerable and I plan to stick to that. So you rather take what I am offering or leave!!!!" I spat out, the tears that I had tried so hard to fight falling uncontrollably...

"Tamara I did......"
"Don't....I don't wanna hear it...." I said shakily....

"I am sorry...."
"Why are you even sorry???" I shoved his chest with my hands  but he only pulled me closer...

"We will do it your way Tamara... I won't rush you or push you to do anything you don't want to do...." He whispered softly into my ear...

I tried  to push him away but couldn't... The magnetic pull between us overcame me...

"Thank you...."

"Am I forgiven miss Tamara???"

"You are a hard man to hate Mr Arara...." I chuckled and snuggled my face into his hard chest...

I have always been in control with every other guy but with Garry I feel like a ticking bomb waiting to explode...

He pulled me back and leaned close taking my mouth in a hard punishing kiss...I gasped as he thrusted his tongue past my parted lips and deep into my mouth... He explored it roughly,sliding,licking and claiming it as his own....

"Do you want to shower with me????"

"That's a tempting offer,Mr Arara..." I wrapped my arms around his neck...

"I just don't want you to leave. I never seem to get enough of you..."

"I think I have a better idea ...Mama here feels thirsty and wants to be quenched...."

"Papa never disappoints...." I was on my back and him on top of me in an instant...

"I will wait as long as it takes Tamara...You are worth it...." He takes my shirt off me...

For a moment I drink the sight of him...His intelligent eyes framed by thick eyelashes, arch of his perfect eyebrows, the perfect angle of his nose,the sensual and masculine curves of his lips and the strong set of his square jaw. He is just perfect...

"Why are you looking at me like that Miss Tamara????"
There was a hint of naughtiness in his voice...

"You are one handsome man Mr   Arara...."

"Your handsome man!!!" He winked and kissed his way down my cheek,my jaw,licking and nipping my jaw and then lower to my chest...

A/N
Don't I just love how Garry is gentle and loving with Tamara...What do you love about Garry's and Tamara complicated relationship???
