From Lust to Love

The loose string of my dress fell from my shoulders as he continue to roam his fingertips on my body. I faced him and looked into his eyes, his eyes are malicious and his lips are moist, calling for me to kiss them. Instead of doing what was inside my head, I slowly knelt in front of him, and slid my fingers from his chest down to his pelvis, without even breaking our sight. He did not move, I smirked looking up at him. The perfect shape of his jaw is more visible because of the kneeling. "Erato, I'm down on my knees," I uttered under my breath. He breathed sexually and grabbed a handful of my hair and did the honor to remove his belt. It feels like demons have come up to heaven to save me because I don't belong there. It was sinful. But this... This is the guilt that will save you. Even before life removed Jade Fuentabella from innocence, she's been head over heels with Erato Asterial, the third child and the successor of Asterial Empire, known for his bad boy and womanizer reputation. Jade lived her life trying to win his heart, but things got more interesting because of Erato's wickedness. Could she handle all of it? Or could he?
CHAPTER 1 Handsome and Asshole
"Erato Asterial and Jade Fuentabella?"
I gasped and brought my hand unto my mouth because of the excitement.
I felt his hard chest bumped from my behind, his hands traced my s-line and volts of electricity have made their way in any passage of my body in all possible ways.
"Erato, I am invited?"
I can't believe that I'll be able to attend an exclusive event of Asterial Empire. But that's not just the part that excites me the most. It's because finally, I can be with him in this kind of public events and not just public because It's the Asterial Empire who's hosting this party.
Who would not be happy if you get invited by one of the most exclusive family in this country? And not only that, because of this invitation, attached to my name is his name.
I craned my neck when I felt the warmth of his breath, giving him more access while his lips are tracing every inch of it in a softest way.
"A-and I'm coming with you?"
I said gasping my breath. At this point, I'm not sure what excites me the most. Is it the invitation? The thought of being with him? Or the touches and his pecks on my skin?
The thin shiny fabric wrapping into my skin can't even defend the shivers that he's giving me right now. His touches was sure and soft yet it gives an uneven discernment.
"Yeah. You're coming with me."
Him, giving a clear diction to that word.
The loose string of my dress fell from my shoulders as he continue to roam his fingertips on my body. Not even sure, because butterflies are too cliché to describe what's inside me.
I faced him and looked at his eyes, his eyes are malicious and his lips are moist, calling for me to kiss it.
But instead of doing what's inside my head, I slowly knelt in front of him and slid my fingers from his chest down to his pelvis, without even breaking our sight.
He did not move, I smirked looking up at him. The perfect shape of his jaw is more visible because of the kneeling.
"Erato, I'm down on my knees." I uttered under my breath.
He breathed sexually and grabbed a handful of my hair and did the honor to remove his belt.
It feels like demons have come up to heaven to save me, because I don't belong in there. It was sinful. But this ...
This is the guilt that will save you.
"Ms. Fuentabella, now that we are already on our second day of this topic I assume that you have already understood this lesson."
I narrowed my eyes so I could see his face more clearly. Every tap of his fingers on the table and every blink of the perfect shape of his eye I did not miss.
"The arithmetic is the simplest and most widely used measure of a mean, or average."
He was all serious and quite as he was playing this "bored" board game with my dad. I can't understand why they love to play that. Games are supposed to be fun so games, not to be boring.
He started playing PSP with Jaxon, until he realized that he didn't want to play with my brother anymore so Daddy was his preferred competitor now.
Well, I don't want to mention that they also played girl, I'll just pretend I don't know about that thing.
Dad admires him so much, I think he praises Erato even more often than my brother Jaxon. You can't blame dad, Jaxon is not interested into Law. Erato often shows interest in what Dad says so here I am, admiring him more than dad admires him.
I can't help but to moist my lips when he touched his lips in full concentration when dad made his move, persevere to win this game. Some minimal tattoo in his knuckles was visible.
I remember when he and my brother Jaxon were both patting. As soon as they reached legal age they did so immediately. Olivia is very angry with her brother Jaxon.
But me? I'm amazed and amused of Erato.
My optometrists gave me my eye prescription, yet this is probably the clearest thing in my eyes. Daddy pays dime only to find out that their analysis is wrong? Tsk.
His well built curves are visible through his clothing, admiring the thin plain gray long sleeve which was hugging his body. I can't help but to notice how well built he is.
He’s not like the guys you'll watch in WWE who are like man -made muscle.
He was just, perfect, not the cringey type of bulkiness, but looking at him I would definitely ask him to hurt me and I'll still thank him.
How old was he? 21? It also makes sense for them to get tired at Kuya Jax's Gym even though they only go there with women. How did I know? I don’t want to talk about it, ugh.
"Ms. Jade? Are you paying attention?"
His almond eyes are on their own concentration while his thick eyebrows are in a flat line, he is always like this, even though he is not really angry it seems like something has always been done to him. I guess he's the only one I want to be angry with. He's hot when he's mad.
"Arithmetic means simply-"
"-Simply involves taking the sum of a group of numbers, then dividing that sum by the count of the numbers used in the series."
I said without me realizing, without breaking my sight with my breath taking view.
I snorted at the same time exhaling.
Oof. Stop biting your lip Erato.
I lost my attention to Erato when my home school teacher sneezed. She look amused and her mouth was half open while looking at me.
I asked my tutor curiously.
"G-good to know that you've been studying our lesson ahead of time."
She said hesitantly and turned to his book. I did not study about it though. I've read it somewhere.
I turned my gaze back to where Daddy and Erato were there, from here on the terrace of my room and I could see his laughter and Daddy's frustration. He's winning again.
A maid on her uniform with a handful of snacks distracted their time for a second but returned immediately to the subject. The maid's sticky gaze could not escape my sight as she set down the last glass in front of Erato.
"Is she new?"
I really like bitter melon but I almost spit in bitterness when I said those three words.
I stopped when I saw the maid smile at Erato and how she flirts with him. Wow! If Daddy hadn't been there, she would have been shaking.
"What the-- fuck?"
"What did you just say Ms. Fuentabella?"
My almost burning eyes shifted to Ms. Jessica. She look shocked, I chuckled in unbridled annoyance.
"Can we just resume this tomorrow? I'm not feeling well."
I saw that she didn't know if she would agree with what I said but she had no choice. Why would she not want it? She can go home early and still get the same salary.
Fortunately, she agreed. Of course, she would. What else am I expecting?
Since Ms. left. Jessica I never took my gaze away from them Daddy. This guy is certified head turner, one look at him then you can easily make a judgment about him. The saying 'Looks can be deceiving' to him is not applicable because what you see in him is that he really is.
I just sat down on the railing of my terrace while appreciating his face that I always dreamed of. I'm very vocal about my feelings towards him.
Dad, Olivia and my brother Jax, their girls and everybody else knew. The only thing that’s left is for me to put up a billboard just to announce to the whole world that I'm head over heels to a man who can't even give glance at me.
He's currently taking up Pol. Sci. Since I don't know a thing about that shit, I don't know what year he will finish school because they don't really seem to finish.
He managed to study even after all of his affairs and hook ups. He's that good, he can keep up with the flood of his life while making a woman cum. I want to make a fuss about it but when you're beautiful you just have to calm down.
