Ryan was truly happy for the first time in his life. It had been almost a month since the first time he had taken Catherine on that first date but now, they had established a routine that suited both of them. He stayed at her new apartment one day, the next day she stayed with him at his penthouse and the third day they stayed at their own respective places, recuperating from the intense lovemaking.
Lovemaking? He thought with a smile. Before Catherine, he had never thought about the exchange of body fluids in that term with anybody. She just brought out a part of him he never knew existed, a part that made him hope that a better person existed deep inside the shell of his body.
Everything was so good in his life that he kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and then it happened.
