Dante walked up towards the large country mansion; truly it was magnificent with its stone carvings but it still dwarfed his by far. He rang the door bell and waited. This was going to be an exciting five day visit, the main reason was to celebrate his best friend's birthday as well as being a small and intimate reunion too. Theo's father and his had been business partners for over twenty years and they had grown up like two brothers.
He was looking forward to spending time with his God-children Jemima and Jeremy. They belonged to Maya-Theo's sister, but he smiled when he remembered Theo's youngest sister; Belle. He had always teased her since he's known her and with a five year gap it wasn't a wonder why. She had always found him to be arrogant and she was too direct and opinionated.
"Hey, Dante. How are you?" Theo's voice brought him out of his thoughts. He could hear the footsteps of the twins running towards them. Stepping into the hall, he was wrapped around by fours arms. The twins had grown so much since he last saw those three months ago and they were only seven.
"Did you miss me Dante?" Jemima asked excitedly. As she smiled he could see one tooth was missing.
"Has the tooth-fairy visited you lately?" he asked sweeping her off her feet.
"Hehehe I'm too old for that now" she replied.
"I've brought my cars so we can play" Jeremy said smiling; he too had a tooth missing.
"Let Dante get in first, I'm sure he's tired" Theo said laughingly. He knew how energetic his niece and nephew could be.
"Good to see you Dante. How was your trip?" Maya asked as she walked towards him followed by her husband Cliff.
"All the better for being here now," he said smiling.
"Here let me help you with your things to your room" Cliff offered.
"There's plenty of time till the guests arrive, so relax and make yourself at home" Theo said as he led the twins and his sister off to continue with the preparations.
Dante followed Cliff up onto the third floor. Everything still looked the same since he'd last stayed here six years ago. He was looking forward to taking a shower and to relax a little before the party.
He spent the first half hour unpacking before jumping into the shower. As he stepped out he could hear a woman's voice outside his door. When he opened it he saw her struggling with the door.
"Come on you stupid thing," she moaned in frustration banging the door.
"Here let me help you" Dante offered.
She spun around to see a tall handsome man with only a towel wrapped around his waist. His body was lean and slightly tanned. His features were sharp yet delicate. His short dark hair which was now wet swept behind his ears. He had a twinkle in his eye and she knew that smile very well.
"Hello Dante" she said.
He was taken aback at first and studied her. His eyes narrowed as he tried to recognise her. Then it hit him; Belle. His friend's family were all good-looking but this little minx was something else from what he could remember. She'd been 18 the last time he saw her and now she'd grown up into a woman. She wore tight jeans and a simple black t-shirt but he could see her features very well—definitely gilled out very nicely. Her hair was in a ponytail and she had no make-up on. From what he could see she had just arrived herself and was staying opposite him.
"Do you want some help with that door?" He offered. She stepped aside. He brushed past her and smiled. She rolled her eyes, still as arrogant as ever. He pulled the door in sharply before turning the handle. As the door swung open the double bed came into view.
"Sharing it with anyone?" he asked with a cheeky grin.
"A lady never kisses and tells" she said smiling sweetly.
"Well, if you get lonesome you know where I am," he said with a wink.
"In your dreams," she replied before slamming the door shut.
Dante stood outside her door; that went as well as could be expected. He smiled at the opportunity that had presented itself. He always enjoyed teasing her and right now he had a raging hard-on that he had to get rid of. He walked back into his room and back into the shower to jerk off.
Dante walked down the stairs as it was approaching 8 o' clock. He was dressed in a simple pair of black trousers with its matching jacket and light blue shirt. His hair was ruffled slighted and it suited his natural attributes well. He could already see that many of the guests had arrived and the hosts were busy. The twins were busy with their own friends, so at least the evening wouldn't be boring for them.
"Did you sleep well, Dante?" Maya asked once he reached the foot of the stairs.
"Yes, thanks. I can't believe I slept so much. I guess I was more tired than I thought. Need any help?" He asked looking around. There were some very attractive women. He hoped some of them were single who knew what the evening held; and after all Theo's parents weren't here, so he didn't need to worry about any embarrassment.
"Could you go over and help Belle in the kitchen? I'd rather have her out here than in there all night," she said before going to answer the door.
Dante walked off. He passed the dining room where he saw Theo surrounded by three women—none of whom he recognised. He laughed to himself. His best friend could be a dark horse at times. Walking into the kitchen he didn't see anyone but a beautiful cake.
"Belle, are you in here?" He asked, walking closer towards the cake. It had a distinct cherry liqueur smell mixed with rich chocolate. There were glazed cherries on top but it didn't look finished.
"Did Maya send you?" Came her voice as she walked out of the pantry.
He spun around and stopped immediately when he saw her. She was a vision. A royal blue dress just off the shoulders with a deep plunge accentuating her more than generous sized breasts, though the dress reached down to her ankles there was a long slit up to her mid-thigh on the left side. Her hair which was swept up with some loose strands added to her height, simple long gold earrings barely touched her slender neck. Her smoky eyes and light lip gloss on her full lips made her look very sultry. She looked good enough to eat.
"Is something wrong?" She asked, concerned when she realised he was staring at her so intensely.
"You look wonderful" he replied never taking his eyes off her.
"I'm just making the final touches to the cake. Do you like it? Black Forest Gateau—Theo loves it" she said as she continued putting on the glazed cherries before placing the cake in the fridge.
"Do you need any help" he asked watching her as she placed a finger in her mouth licking the cream off so sensually. He wanted to walk over and ravish her mouth. She then scooped the cream again and offered it to him. He leaned forward and sucked on her finger. He did it never blinking.
"You must be Dante" a defensive voice stated from the kitchen door.
Belle took her finger out of his mouth and smiled before turning towards the door.
"Dante this is Claude. He's a friend of mine from the city" she explained. She didn't like the way he looked over at them as if they had been caught in a compromising position.
"I see" Dante replied. He too had noticed the look in Claude's eyes and could sense that he must have feelings for Belle; not that he could blame him. She had filled out very nicely and was one hot babe.
"Dante, I'll try to catch up with you tomorrow, properly," she said before he turned to leave.
"Interrupting something?" Claude asked when they were alone. She looked stunning and he'd always been fond of her, even tried to bed her but never succeeded but never gave up either.
"Don't be silly. Dante has been a family friend for over twenty years with Theo. I haven't seen him in six" she never got to continue.
"So you thought you'd greet him by letting him suck on your finger, and tomorrow catch up will be with you on your back I suppose?" He asked in a mocking tone.
"That's enough. I do not have to explain myself to you or anyone else" she replied hotly. Why did guys have to be such assholes?
Claude left in a huff, leaving Belle to calm down before she left too. She just wanted to have a nice time and enjoy her brother's birthday especially as she'd gone through the effort of making the cake too. Taking a deep breath she went out and began to greet the new arrivals.
The evening went on with great success and everyone mingled with everyone else. Though she spent most of her time at Claude's side, she managed to spend it with others too. Dante looked over at the 'couple'; they looked odd. He could clearly see that he was all over her and being over protective, yet she was being courteous or maybe that how she wanted it to be perceived. They hadn't even had time to get reacquainted, yet she had seen him in a towel and had his finger in her warm wet mouth. Damn if all reunions could be this sexy.
As the evening continued Dante managed to find time with Belle alone on the balcony. She was using it as an excuse to get away from all the attention Claude was giving her tonight—she was glad she didn't have to see him in the morning.
"Running away from all the action?" Dante asked lazily leaning against the cool stone wall and looking her up and down.
"Something like that. How are you anyway? I'm sorry we haven't had a chance to talk. It's been so long; six years," she said thinking. He had been such a pest, always teasing her, but that was then and six years was a long time.
"Good. I'm working in my father's firm but at the moment it's mostly from home which is great. You?" he asked walking towards her.
