SCARLET

Here I am, alone again. Well, what is new?

At least before Mom remarried. Of course, she was still the loving mother I knew; only I didn't have her full attention now. Who would ignore a man like Thomas? He loved her very much, and there's nothing more I could wish for but her happiness.

However, nothing had changed. I was in the same position six years ago when I watched their wedding ceremony. I was sitting all alone, not knowing anyone because the guest was mostly acquainted with the Alejandros. Oh, right! Something had changed. I could drink now.

This was my third glass of wine, and my throat still wanted more—perhaps a stronger drink. My roommate, Katherine, would usually offer vodka during sleepless nights, and discouraging times. If only my stepbrother wasn't such an ass and actually treated me as a part of the family, I wouldn't have been such a loner.

Nonetheless, I didn't think I wanted to mingle around him at his time. He's been talking and dancing non-stop with a blonde Barbie doll in a body-hugging red dress, my eyes hurt just by looking at them. He was holding the small of her back. I'd always convinced myself that he's off-limits, but I couldn't help but wonder how it would be like to be held by him.

I heaved a sigh. I was getting hopeless and hopeless as the night deepened.

The waiter once again came back with another glass, but he spoke this time, "Would you like something to eat, miss?"

"No, just this drink. Thank you."

"But I've noticed, you haven't eaten anything, " he spoke again. When did waiters become such an observer? But he was right, I hadn't.

"Give the lady some snack, please, " another voice interrupted, and a man in a crisp gray suit and silver neckties appeared behind him. He was seriously handsome with a pair of hazel eyes and about Luke's age, I guess.

"And who are you?" I narrowed my eyes at him.

He let out a chuckle and sat on the chair across me. "I'm Aries. Nice to meet you." He reached out a hand.

"Scarlet." I shook his hand.

Aries flashed out a charming smile, showing his two deep dimples. "How come such a beautiful lady like you sitting here alone?"

Okay, he was good at this. I knew men like him, but I couldn't think which category I should put him.

"I'm not alone, " I reasoned. Well, I wasn't utterly alone. My parents and stepbrother were out there.

He smiled again. "Really? Where are your company? Are they here?" He lifted the covers and looked under the table. "I can't see anyone."

"Stop it!" I finally laughed. For t

at me.

"Sure, man." Aries stepped aside and patted Luke's shoulder again and winked at me. "See you later, Scarlet."

I answered him with a smile.

Luke slid on my waist and pulled me close to him as soon his friend left. And unlike Aries who gave me space, Luke sandwiched me between his arms, possessively pressing me against his hard rock body. His broad physique dwarfed my small frame, which made me feel vulnerable, and it's bad news. I hated this effect he was giving me that made squirming against my thighs. I clung to his shoulders but kept my eyes away and tried not to drink him in. He smelled so divine.

I could feel Luke's gaze on me as he began swaying our hips. His long fingers at my back were compelling me to move in accord with his body. His thumb pressing firm on my palm. I tried to bear it, but I couldn't. I couldn't breathe. He was driving me crazy.

"Wait, " I whispered.

I stopped and pushed his chest a little with my free hand, but he didn't let me. He brought me back to his arms with aggression. A groan of frustration vibrated in his chest. What the heck was wrong with him?

"Stop struggling, " he hissed harshly.

"Luke…" I resisted. "Please… this isn't dancing."

"Then what are you think we're doing?" he whispered and how he said the words was so damned hot.

"Ah… please don't." His grasp on my wrist tightened.

I looked up at him this time, and he was watching me with need. As if he was stripping me with his gaze. Luke's hand moved to my neck, and his thumb brushed on my cheek. A muscle in his jaw twitched.

"Is this what you normally do, witch?"

I tried to wriggle. "What did I do?"

"I think you've bewitched every man in here."
