Her Venice Affair
Riana and Reno Albury came to America with their mother Cora Davis who ran away from her New Providence home after she was confronted by her lover’s wife.
After their mother’s death and Reno’s deportation, Riana is left alone in NYU. Life seems to only gets worse when she finds her roommate and her boyfriend having sex in her bed. Distraught and tired of always been the good girl, she takes a billionaire up on his offer to go to Venice with him.
What could possibly go wrong?
Allan and Dante began walking towards them as Mr. Torino stopped at a large table in the exclusive corner set out for important guests. He pulled out a chair for Riana and she took it. Her slit parted to expose her leg right up to her thigh and Allan groaned loudly.
How was he supposed to sit next to her and eat with that leg taunting him?
“Dio mio!” Dante exclaimed next to him.
“What?” Riana looked from him to Dante as she pulled the dress to cover her leg. It stayed put for a while before it fluidly slipped off her leg like water against marble rock.
Mr. Torino chuckled, and Dante groaned his eyes riveted on her leg.
Allan cursed, quickly taking the seat next to her teasing leg and placing the napkin from the table to cover her thigh.
She looked at him with a quirked brow before she smiled that ‘oh, not so innocent’ teasing smile and said, “Oops!”
“Yeah right, little witch!”
Dante took the seat next to him laughing. “Remind me to send Guliana a thank you gift basket.”
“Remind me to send Guliana a pink slip,” Allan grumbled.
Riana giggled and cupped his cheek in her hand. “No, you won’t. She was going for a specific reaction from you, and I think she accomplished it. Her master piece was a success.”
Allan leaned in close and whispered, “Her master piece is about to be ravished under this table if she doesn’t quit teasing me.”
Riana’s eyes widened and she dropped her hand quickly picking up the menu. “Let’s order!” she squeaked.
Mr. Torino laughed taking the seat at Riana’s other side. “Yes, let’s order. I don’t believe my children will come.”
Riana held his hand. “Don’t worry, we’ll keep you entertained.”
Just then, a waiter walked to the table with a bottle of wine, “Signorina, this is for you, our most expensive bottle. Compliments of the gentlemen’s table over there.” He pointed to their right and the entire table of five men waved at her.
Allan fumed. What right did they have to send his girlfriend a bottle of wine? He should go over there and beat them with it!
She waved back, smiling. “Gratzie, but please take it back.”
The waiter’s brows furrowed. “Signorina?”
Riana placed her hand on the inside of Allan’s diner jacket and rubbed his chest as if she were trying to calm him. It calmed him all right but she notice it also quickly turned him on as her soft touch teased his peck. She knew he wouldn’t make it through dinner without turning into a caveman and dragging her off if she kept this up.
“I really do appreciate it, but if I took that bottle the saying ‘don’t shoot the messenger’ will not apply to you.”
“Take the bottle back or I’m going to beat you with it!” Allan gnashed out. He kept his voice cool and low enough to deliver the threat in a way the guy would receive it loud and clear.
The waiter took a giant step back, the bottle held tightly to his chest his eyes wide with shock as he stared at Allan. Yes, he got the message.
