Here is the next meme from The Source for your enjoyment.
His Handler grabbed a crystal pyramid off her desk and threw it at Nathan’s head, but he deftly snatched it from the air and placed it back on her desktop. Exasperated, Reena sighed heavily. “Companion, your mouth is going to get you in trouble. You’re supposed to be a gentleman. The building she lives in is more of a multi-building complex. There will be plenty to do, and I’m sure with your talented mind you’ll find something to do.”
Smiling wickedly, Nathan knew exactly how to keep a woman occupied. Because this woman was a top Gen, he was sure she was beautiful and he would just have to keep her under the covers and exhausted with his skills of passion. If nothing else, it would keep him entertained, at least for a while, before his inner worth went down the toilet further.
Reena evidently recognized the lust-filled expression on his face because she interrupted his musings with, “No, you won’t. The fourth and most important rule absolutely and emphatically says you won’t have any form of contact with her. No touching, no hugging, no kissing, no petting, and absolutely, positively no fucking. She is to remain untouched, and you’ll abide by that rule. Do you understand, Companion?”
Nathan shot up from the chair, not knowing what the fuck was going on, but something smelled bad with this one. He felt like someone was standing over his grave and laughing down at him. A set up to be sure. “Reena, is this some kind of sick joke? Did BioGen fuck up and release a female too soon from the incubation before she was a full grown woman? Gens might be almost emotionless, but eventually their over-developed sex drive demands release.”
“Companion, calm down. I asked the same questions. BioGen indicated she is perfectly normal, although a bit eccentric it sounds like. And yes, I tried to ask additional questions so you would have the best information to keep her entertained, but I was basically told no further information would be forthcoming other than her location. Any further poking would cancel the transaction and…” Reena swallowed, obviously nervous about something before she continued, “and my license as Handler will be taken away.”
The Source Excerpt:
Right before his lips touched hers, the sound of the evening fifteen minute curfew warning went off. Crystal jumped and Nathan instantly pulled back.
“Damn it. I’m sorry, Crystal, I was so caught up in the moment I lost track of time.”
Grasping at his jacket, Crystal cried, “Nathan we have to get back. This is all my fault. If we get caught after curfew, they’ll take you away and maybe punish you. I should have never talked you into this.”
Tears streamed down her face and she swiped at them in fear for Nathan and for her. BioGen would probably punish her as well, and the things they could do terrified her. She choked, her body shaking, and her pulse rate went through the roof. Nathan seemed to try and calm her brushing the tears away but there just wasn’t any time and she fought to get a grip on her runaway emotions.
“Listen. I can get us back in plenty of time but you need to calm down. Do you trust me?” he asked while he pulled her hood back up over her face and followed up with his own to hide his.
Still gripping his jacket and feeling shaky, she nodded and whispered, “I do trust you, Nathan.”
With an encouraging look he reassured her, “Good. Just hold on tight and I’ll get us back to The Inspire. You just be ready with that magic necklace of yours to get us back into the building so no one will suspect we were ever gone. Ready?”
Crystal took a deep breath and nodded. It was the only acknowledgement Nathan appeared to need and after he grasped her hand in a firmer grip than earlier, he led her back out of the circle of bushes. Once on the path, he sped up into a fast jog and she had to push herself into a full out run to keep up with him. He was fast compared to her and she was panting before they even went a few feet but she was determined to get him back to her condo safely. Together they covered quite a bit of distance even making it to the large crack in the blacktop they had passed earlier. Nathan eased them both around the gap and Crystal began to breathe easier.
Just when she was sure they were going to make it in time, Crystal saw two Nul guards approaching with BioGen uniforms on, evidently making their last rounds. Pulling back against Nathan’s forward progression, she urgently whispered, “Nathan, BioGen guards.”
Immediately, Nathan steered both of them off the blacktop and over to one of the large trees bordering along the path. As soon as they were under the large spread of branches he spun her around and pushed her back against the trunk. The bark was rough but Nathan’s body surrounding and pressing against her was rock hard. He felt good and she felt protected but the Nul’s were getting so close and she could see them watching. She started to shake with nerves because she was sure they were going to get caught.
Nathan shifted slightly blocking her completely from the guard’s view. He leaned against his arm which he had positioned above her forming a protective cocoon around her. He leaned down just enough so he could push her hood back with his free hand and put his lips near her ear. Crystal could feel his warm breath brush against her and the sensation made her shiver for a different reason.
“Crystal, I need you to relax. You’re just a Gen with her purchased Companion enjoying an intimate moment together. The Nuls won’t know any different unless we give them a reason to,” Nathan whispered, his voice vibrating through her body as he pressed his body against hers.
Perhaps it was to distract her, or to convince the Nul’s they were enjoying an intimate moment, or just because he wanted to, but Nathan was suddenly kissing the sensitive spot just below her ear. She closed her eyes gasping at the incredible sensation, her body tingling from the point of contact all the way to her core. She fisted her hands in his jacket trying to keep her legs from buckling from the weakness he was causing. He didn’t stop there, oh no, he continued in his exploration with those wonderful tingling kisses until he reached her collarbone where he gently nipped and then kissed her again. She whimpered and her legs would have buckled if not for his strong arm around her waist supporting her.
