Her seduction technique had not worked well enough, and she was going to have to work on that or otherwise she’d be spilling everything all the time to Dorian. Reaching under her pillow, she pulled out her wallet.
With Onyx able to get in and out of her room easily, she didn’t want to leave anything around.
“Do you know Jona?” she asked.
“Of course I know Jona Black, but why would she be talking to you?” he questioned suspiciously. “With my association to Onyx Heart, I don’t think she wants to even speak to me. Matter of fact, she does her best to stay clear of me.”
“Well, she asked me to help a good friend of hers, The Shadow.”
He shifted uncomfortably. “How would this help me with Onyx?”
“If we help, she promised you would never have to deal with Onyx again. Are you willing to help?”
“Will they kill her?” he asked.
“No, but I was assured if you helped they would keep her occupied.”
He sat up looking as if someone had hit him in the stomach. After a moment, he asked, “What would I have to do?”
She relaxed. Why she had been incredibly tense as if this meant a lot to her. Chon refused to try to understand right now.
“This friend of hers needs you to use your business contacts to acquire some private business offices and living spaces in the downtown area.”
“Why me?” Dorian asked, lying back in his previous position with a concerned and bothered look.
“You are the only one no one would be watching. Once they have Onyx occupied, you’re pretty much free to do whatever you want to do.”
“What would I be doing other than acquiring this property?” he questioned suspiciously.
“That was it. There are specifications and requirements that need to be met, and they may require you to oversee the renovations, but after that, there’s nothing else.”
“No, she assured me it was legit, and I believe her,” Chon said and handed him the card. “I spoke to the contact myself tonight after Onyx left to be assured of everything.”
Dorian looked down at the card, and one would have thought he had just gotten stabbed in the heart. In a strained voice, he asked, “You spoke to this man?”
“And what did he say?”
“He said he could come by the office tomorrow in the late afternoon and explain to you the monetary role he’ll have in this. No money will be coming out of your pockets.”
“This is Lincoln Cytee!” he declared, waving the card around. “Are you sure The Shadow was working through him?”
“I’m positive. He said he’s handling all of The Shadow’s affairs in Detroit. Why are you so worried, Dorian?”
“The Cytee Boys are rumored to work for King Heart.”
“He’s related to Onyx I assume.”
“If that’s what you want to call it, Chon. King Heart’s in Chicago and those bloodlines don’t get along at all. If I help this Cytee boy, I’m most likely helping him in some way.”
She knew this meant he would be on the other side of what Onyx would want. “The decision is really up to you, Dorian. I’ve scheduled the meeting with Lincoln Cytee. If you don’t want to meet with him, you can cancel the appointment yourself. I’ll understand.”
“Would you? Because that would mean Onyx would be in our lives.”
“Because she wouldn’t just make me unhappy, she’s going to go after you. Doesn’t that bother you?”
“I’m not going to lie, Onyx scared the bejesus out of me, but giving you peace of mind is my job, Dorian, and I’m willing to do whatever I can to help you.”
Wrapping one arm around his neck, while the other moved down to grip the base of his manhood. “Anything Dorian Zane,” she promised before kissing him.
He groaned and succumbed to her seduction this time, rolling on top of her and taking full control of the kiss and her body. For hours he played with her body and made love to her until she passed out in the early morning.
By the time she awoke again, Chon had realized her alarm had not gone off, and Dorian Zane was not in bed beside her.
Dressing quickly, she ran downstairs and left a note with the help thanking Skye and Thaddeus who was still in bed.
It was almost eight in the morning, and she needed to rush home to get changed and to the office. She dug in her purse to find her phone. Dorian had not even called to awake her. She checked to see if he had done anything with the meeting late on his schedule with Lincoln Cytee. He hadn’t, which meant he still might attend.
Arriving home, Chon paused at her front door and saw it had been kicked in. Had she been robbed?
Immediately she dialed 911 and waited in her vehicle until officers showed up five minutes later, but they didn’t go in to check out the place.
“We’ve been instructed to wait,” the police officer said.
“Wait for what?”
A black undercover car pulled up, and a large man wearing a Stetson got out. He was clean cut, with familiar cruel black eyes. She stiffened remembering she saw this car before and this man; Lieutenant Salacious Heart.
Why was he here and was he connected to Onyx Heart? Oh hell! Why was she putting everything together now? Now, when she didn’t have time to deal with this.
The large man walked up to her, tipped his hat and said, “I’ve been looking all over for you, Chon. We need to talk.”
