Normally she’d have to be punished for her betrayal tonight but he knew she’d make it right when they were together. She knew she belonged to him now. Every ounce of manhood within him screamed out to charge in the house right now, don’t wait.
“No.” He hissed. Patience. Love, patience and long-suffering. Slowly. He had to follow the plan. She had the message now. She would think twice before betraying him again.
