My gaze fell on the forbidden door and curiosity poked at me. I knew he had a stash of keys in his kitchen drawer and I bet one of them was for the lock on this door. I bit my lip, toying with the idea of grabbing those keys and looking inside.
What would it hurt? He’d never have to know.
And I really wanted to know what was inside.
I turned and walked into the kitchen, then grabbed the keys and returned to the hallway. The third key fit in the lock.
I hesitated, knowing I shouldn’t really do this.
But curiosity won out and I turned the key. I pushed the door open and peered inside, but it was dark in the room. Were there no windows?
I reached along the wall, searching for a light switch. My fingers found it and I flicked on the light.
My eyes widened. The room was big and at first I couldn’t even comprehend what I was seeing. I stepped inside.
There was a black leather couch and a big black cupboard on one wall. There was strange furniture around the room that I didn’t really understand, but many had big steel rings fastened to them, some with leather straps attached, and others with chains.
There were chains on the wall, too, at just the right height for a person. In the corner, there was a tall, narrow cage.
I walked to the cabinet and opened one of the doors. Inside, I was shocked to find what looked like floggers, riding crops, and paddles in different shapes and sizes. I reached out and touched one of the suede floggers with one-inch wide strands. It was a beautiful shade of purple, and the suede was soft under my fingertips.
“I told you not to come in here.”
I twirled around at the sound of Cade’s voice. He stood in the doorway looking big and menacing.
“I’m… uh… sorry.”
There was no way to explain away what I’d done. I had blatantly defied his wishes, and now I’d been caught.
He frowned as he stepped into the room.
“Now you must think I’m some kind of freak. Or pervert,” he said.
“No, of course not. I would never think that about you.”
His eyebrow arched. “Then what do you think?” He raised his hand and gestured around the room. “About all of this?”
I turned back to the cupboard and touched the suede flogger again, loving the softness of it.
“I think that it shows you’re adventurous in the bedroom. That you like to try new, exciting things.”
He closed the door behind him and stepped toward me. “And what about you, Jenna? Do you like exciting, adventurous things in the bedroom?”
As he approached, like a panther stalking his prey, my heart raced.
“Well… uh…” I drew in a breath. “Sure, I guess so.”
As I glanced around the room at all the strange equipment, however, my stomach fluttered in uncertainty. But I knew deep inside that I totally trusted Cade.
“You don’t sound too certain.”
“Well, it totally depends on who I’m with.” Then I smiled seductively. “With you, for instance, I would be very adventurous.”
He stopped in front of me and placed his hands on my shoulders.
“You know, Jenna. I told you that you and I wouldn’t happen. Remember?”
Disappointment flooded through me and I nodded.
“And I told you not to come in this room. Right?”
I nodded again, feeling very sheepish.
“Say ‘yes, sir’ so I know you understand.”
Then his hand glided along my shoulders and down my arms, sending tremors of awareness through me.
“Since you chose to ignore what I told you, I think there have to be consequences.”
Consequences? Was he going to fire me?
But the heat in his eyes and the velvety tone of his voice assured me otherwise.
“Like what?” Then I added, “Sir.”
A slow smile spread across his face.
“I will have to punish you.”
