JunoI exhaled as the last guest at our wedding reception walked away. We'd said goodnight to all of them and that meant our wedding was finally over. It had been a whirlwind of a day, and I'd enjoyed it, all of it happening on Jack's island, but I was eager for what would follow once we were alone as well.Jack took my hand, not saying a word as he finally led me away from the beach and patio where a multitude of heat lamps, candles and fairy lights lit the scene. At the bottom of the stairs he paused, looking me over.Heat ran through me at the look of hunger and appreciation in his eyes. Before I could do anything, he picked me up, pulling me into his embrace and holding me in place as if I weighed nothing while he climbed the stairs.He took me all the way to the bedroom and then gently placed me on the bed.
JackHaving Juno in my arms again felt so good I didn't want to move or do anything but hold her there. I felt as if I was still reeling, having thought her gone from my life only a short while earlier.I was convinced Kai and Alma had both known of Juno's plan and I was both grateful and slightly irritated at them. Of course, I also had questions about how they'd got Juno onto the island without me knowing, but I still didn't want to do or say anything that would stop the moment I had with her right now.Sadly, the rest of the world seemed to decide we'd had enough time together and it pulled us back to reality. Laughter from outside reminded me that I had a house full of guests and Alma had mentioned putting food aside.It made me painfully aware of how long we'd been gone already and how it would be very obvio
JunoI couldn't get enough of Jack as I returned to earth, still handcuffed to the end of his bed. It had felt perfect to finally be at his mercy and give myself to him entirely. All this time I'd been holding back and yet when it actually came to it, I'd love every second of it.After kissing me some more, Jack slowly untangled us, pulling back and running his gaze over me. I felt almost drunk, my breathing erratic and my pulse racing. So many emotions ran through me, but I knew I wanted more. I didn't want Jack to be done with me at all.For a moment I was vaguely aware of voices outside, but Jack never looked away from my body, his gaze roving over every inch of me. My thighs were slick with my own wetness and I was pretty sure my hair was a mess too, tousled by the hands he'd gripped it with while he fucked me. I also didn't doubt I was going t
JackThe island looked different after the storm. I knew it would, but something about it just didn't feel right anymore. The folks who had renovated everything and cleaned it up had done a good job, even the new jetty to moor the boat had been done well, especially given how swiftly they'd done it.Something didn't sit right, however. I couldn't stop thinking about the revelation Kai had given me that Juno had paid for it all. That she'd not wanted me to lose out on her account. Given I had a lot more money than her it still felt wrong that she'd paid for everything to be fixed, however. Especially now she was gone from my life.I wanted to message her, and almost had several times, to at least thank her, but the interview we'd had together kept coming back to mind as well. She'd been wary of me, as if she was deliberately keeping distance between
Ten minutes later I was starting to worry that they were going to delay leaving, or do something else entirely and I was going to be stuck outdoors for ages. If I could have given up in that moment I think I would have.It was terrifying waiting for the hardest part of the mission I was on. Sneaking into the house was going to be hard and I still had no way of knowing for sure that Jack wasn't going to not only reject me, but make a fool of me if he didn't appreciate what I was intending to do.Eventually the door on the back opened up and Jack led his friends out. I noticed everyone but Alma and the other girl with her were there, and it made me feel a little better.Keeping out of sight, I lowered myself even further down, shielded by the bushes nearby, but equally unable to see Jack and everyone else for a moment.
As the island came into sight and the boat moved off to one edge to drop me away from the jetty, I helped a couple of the crew get a small dinghy ready to take me the last of the way. It was something to focus on, but as soon as I was sitting inside it and the two burly sailors were picking up an oar each I felt myself tense up.This was the moment everything could begin to go wrong. If I wasn't dropped quickly enough and the boat was spotted, or if someone else on the island, such as Jack's housekeeper saw me. I would need to hide until it was darker and Alma could get to the island. And then we were going to need to scheme and plan.We'd made a rough plan. I had a rough idea of where I could go so I was out of the wind and sun and not visible easily, but it still had potential problems and there was nothing to be done for the exact timing. Jack and all the other guests needed to be
Shivers ran through me as I thought about the plan Alma and I had made and how soon I was about to begin it. It wouldn't be easy to change my mind once I'd started down this path.I was standing in front of a small carry case. All I was taking with me. It had everything I was going to need and a few things I'd only need if Jack accepted me. Only an hour earlier I'd finished the last of my interviews and I was meant to be heading to the airport to get on a plane back to the UK.But I wasn't going home. Instead I was flying somewhere very different.Grabbing the case and slipping my phone into my pocket I made my way to the waiting car and found Alma already inside it, Kai with her."Hey, Juno. Alma tells me you're up to something but not to ask questions, so, just let me say, if you can put a smile back on Jack's
Before I could entirely leave Kai stepped out and wrapped his arms around me."Why don't you come for drinks," he asked, quietly enough only I would hear."No," I replied. "I don't think that would be a good idea. I'm pretty sure Jack never wants to see me again after I botched that interview so badly.""That's not true. He still loves you, Juno. I swear he does.""And I still feel for him, but I think it's too late now."Kai exhaled and finally let me go. There was a sadness in his eyes but he didn't try and stop me as I walked away. I said goodbye to the others, meeting Jack's eyes only briefly and hurried away. It was all I could do to keep walking and not throw up. It was all too much.I tried to get the elevator to take me back down, but
