Garrick entered the house closing the door behind him. “Bailey.” He called and waited for an answer.

When none came he frowned. As far as he knew she was supposed to be home already. Hearing a sound he headed for the kitchen. When he arrived in the doorway he stopped. Bailey had her back to him as she wiggled her body then made an sultry sound. Knowing that sound he instantly went hard.

“Bailey.” He said again.

She didn’t reply. He frowned. Garrick approached her.

“Oh my God, it’s raspberry.” Bailey whimpered.

As he got closer he spotted what she had. A pastry made by her friend. He touched her shoulder. Bailey shrieked then turned and punched out and flipped him over her hip.

Ah…shit not again. Garrick hit the ground and his teeth clacked together.

Bailey lowered herself and drove her fist down. She stopped just before his face then blinked as she looked at him.

Garrick lifted an eyebrow.

Bailey pulled out the ear bud and smiled at him sheepishly. “Hey…I didn’t hear you come in.”

“We can tell no one about this.” Garrick rolled his eyes. “I’m just finally making people forget about the last time you put me on my ass.” He glanced toward where the pastries were on the counter. “If I recall pastry was involved then too.”

“It was.” Bailey laughed. “You really need to stop sneaking up on me.”

“I came in called out to you.” Garrick said. “That’s not sneaking.”

“I didn’t hear you because of the ear buds.” Bailey knelt and placed her hand on his chest. “Are you ok?”

“I’m going to need some Epsom Salt to soak.” He glared at her playfully. “A wild woman attacked me to defend her pastry.”

You should know better than getting between a woman and her pastries.’ Bailey laughed again. She leaned over and kissed him gently.

He opened and returned it.

“What the hell are you doing on the floor?” A familiar masculine voice asked.

Garrick groaned as he heard it. He forgotten he’d invited Tyr over. Bailey pulled back and laughed.

Garrick sat up. “I slipped on a banana peel.”

“I don’t see any.” Tyr shook his head. “Bailey you really need to stop throwing the man on the floor. Or at least make sure someone is around so we can get pictures as proof.”

“Next time I promise.” Bailey rose and went to Tyr hugging him.

“Hey…wait how the hell did you get into my house?” Garrick rose and stifled a groan.

“Indigo let me in.” Tyr replied.

“I didn’t know she was here.”

“She’s in the media room.” Bailey said. “I was making some tea and getting the pastries she brought.” Bailey smiled sheepishly. “I got distracted.”

“By eating them.” Garrick went to her and teased. He pulled her from Tyr.

“And putting you on your ass.”Tyr retorted then laughed. “Wait until the crew hears this one.” He left the kitchen laughing.


Bailey kissed him. Garrick returned it and tasting the raspberry and chocolate he was reminded of how they meet. At least this time he got to taste the yummy pastry. It didn’t taste as good as kissing Bailey did. He held her close.

About McKenna Jeffries

McKenna Jeffries has loved the written word from time she picked up her first book. Soon she was creating tales of love and family. Although McKenna used to make up stories she never thought to put them on paper until....she realized the stories would keep filling her until they were written. Since then she's been writing and sharing her interracial/multicultural books. There is always some new story floating around her head. An itchy feeling in her fingers fills her until she can get a piece of paper to write it down. She writes because it's a love affair. Writing is in her blood and she enjoys taking readers on a journey. With so many ideas filling her, McKenna is always hard at work.
