Cindy was about to reach the elevator button when I called out. “Leaving so soon?” I asked to interrupt her button pushing.
She turned with her brown eyes looking up at me. Her cheeks were a little flushed and Jin was no where to be seen. She stammered, “I…” She took a deep breath. “Just embarrassed.”
“By what?” I asked.
“I opened a door I shouldn’t have. Ms. Jin was insistent I not look in the unlocked door. But I figured it was something I should know about if my kid was going to stay.”
I grinned at her. “Don’t tell you you thought it was a closet until you saw the straps hanging from the ceiling and the sex swing hanging on the other side?”
She paled and nodded. “I don’t know what kinda of weird you and your lovers are into. But Chris is welcome to stay. But you need to put a lock on the door.”
I laughed. “That’s Dee’s room, and all the kids know to stay out of our private spaces.”
She shook her head. “You have a three year old. He listens without question?”
I shook my head. “No. He questions everything. He’s in a why stage. He doesn’t know what it is, and we don’t hide sex from the kids.” She paled as I continued. “We don’t do it in front of them. But we talk about it.” I sighed. “Look, Cindy, we have a monogamous four way relationship. If anything you should take offense to it’s the fact that we are doing that. “
She laughed. “So kinky sex is probably all part of what you four do.”
I grinned. “Duckling you’d be surprised how vanilla we go.”
“Nothing about your relationship is vanilla.”
I nodded. “True, but it’s just like any other love story. We flirt. We fight. And we…” i didn’t finish the statement as she was already during red around the ears. “Chris will be fine. Matt will be the perfect gentleman, and as long as you come get Chris before our date tomorrow night she won’t see or hear anything inappropriate.”
Ant snorted in the background and I turned to look at my ever present shadow with frown.
“Cindy, this is Ant. Head of TCP Investigations Security team. He will make sure Chris is safe.”
“He seems more like your body guard then head of security.”
I nodded. “He is that. Which is why he’s head of security. He can’t protect me by himself.”
“Do you get a lot of death threats?” she asked.
“I’ve had may share of them.” I smiled, “But I’d rather deal with his brand of security than leave my family without me for the rest of their lives. I mean, I don’t want them to go into massive depressive states because they miss me so.”
Ant snorted again. “Ms. Cindy, let me walk you out. Nox has to go get ready for the party.”
“I didn’t see Jin.” I looked at Ant.
“She didn’t want to interrupt you so she told me when you were done.”
I nodded. It sounded plausible. But Jin never really cared about interrupting before. I grinned. Jin must be embarrassed too. I held out my hand to Cindy with a smile. “It was a pleasure to meet you. You and Chris are welcome here any time.” I shook her hand then let Ant usher her through the elevator doors and I headed back to our room.
