Ryker was on his way to Kalena’s house. She had left the meeting quickly. Too quickly. She was the one to usually stay after and ask the chief questions, or just chats with everyone. Something had upset her. Something that someone had said after the meeting.
He pulls into her driveway, and swiftly exits the vehicle. Her house was nicely sized and placed in a suburb outside of the main city; it was big enough for a small family – despite it only being Kalena who lives there. But there was a reason for Kalena being able to live in her own house at her age (though she has never told anyone)…while most others, including Ryker, lived in an apartment in the city.
With long strides, Ryker makes his way up the stairs and to the front door. Kalena had given him a key to her home almost two years ago, as they had grown close. Outside of the job, Kalena and Ryker would usually be with one another – either sitting at a café and talking, or just to the movies. It actually surprised Ryker how…normal…Kalena was. When it came to being on duty, Kalena was one of the most serious people Ryker knows.
He unlocks the door and steps inside of the house. The smell of peppermint and lavender instantly attacked his senses. It was an aroma that Ryker had grown to find attractive. Ryker makes his way through the living room, and enters the hallway that leads to Kalena’s bedroom. He doesn’t even knock on the door, and just opens it. A frown forms on his face when he doesn’t see Kalena. He decides to search the room, though. And when he walks in and around the bed, he spots Kalena sitting on the wooden floor. She has her knees tucked to her chest, and her arms wrapped around her legs. Her forehead rests on her knees, hiding her face. Slowly and carefully, Ryker sits beside her and stretches out his long legs.
“Are you okay?” Ryker whispers, hoping to receive an answer. Kalena uncurls slightly, and looks at Ryker.
“Yeah, I’m fine. Sorry if I worried you.” Kalena exhales, closing her eyes for a moment.
“It’s fine. What happened? You got out of there pretty fast.” Ryker wonders aloud.
“Do you remember what Horace was joking around about?” Kalena questions.
“Yeah. About some family who got into a horrible accident seven years ago.” Ryker nods.
“That was my family.” Kalena responds, and Ryker is instantly frozen.
“Kalena. You’re not serious, are you?” Ryker’s voice unwillingly cracks. His expression and voice are filled with an equal amount of shock as he stares at her. HER. Kalena Amador. HER. His partner in crime for four years. HER. The woman he had grown to adore. HER. The one who was greatness in a bundle. HER. The one whose life was supposed to be the definition of perfection.
“I’m serious, Ryker.” She nearly glares at him. But her facial features become relaxed as she leans her head back against the bed. “I was 15 years old. My mom had fallen asleep at the wheel and we crashed head on into a semi truck. I don’t remember everything…I just remember that my mother’s side received the most damage. I had almost ended up paralyzed from waist down. My brother was eight years old. His screaming is the most vivid memory. I made sure I didn’t lose consciousness…I FORCED myself to remain conscious so I could talk to him. I tried my best to comofort him. He died on the way to the ER. I was saved. I don’t know how it happened…but I survived. All blame went to my mom.”
“Kalena, I’m sor”- Ryker begins, but Kalena cuts him off by looking at him.
“I’m sick of hearing apologies.” Kalena hisses between her teeth. “It wasn’t anyone’s fault but my own. I was the one who told my mom she could make it. I was a little brat. So why did I have to live? Why couldn’t Sawyer?” She cups her hands over her face, letting the tears soak her palms. “Sawyer was a good kid. He was perfect. He was supposed to get the farthest in life! But I took that away from him! He should have lived! I should have been the one who died in that accident!”
Ryker looks at Kalena in concern, but doesn’t say a word.
“GOD DAMN IT!” Kalena screams at the top of her lungs. She had risen to her feet and was about to leave the room. But Ryker was quick to get to his feet and grasp her in a tight hug.
"Oh, Kalena..." Ryker whispered her name into her ear, his hot breath lingering on her outer canal. Slowly Ryker's mouth went away from Kalena’s ear and to her lips, softly pressing his against hers. One of his hands crept behind her head, grabbing her hair gently in a light fist. After a quicky moment of continuous kissing he pulled away. His saddened eyes met Kalena’s, "No matter what you say, no matter your past, I will never hate you, I will never think that you should have died, and I don’t want you to think that way either...I will always love you.”
"Ryker..." These actions stunned Kalena, this was the first time she had ever seen him like this. Seeing such surprise in Kalena’s eyes, Ryker bent foward. He hid his face with the side of her neck, all the while his grip growing stronger around her. Kalena’s clothed breasts pressed against Ryker's chest as her back was forced to arch up.
"I...I love you too." Kalena finally spoke her own words. Ryker lifts his head away from her neck, and then presses his lips against hers. All grief melted at that moment, liquifying to sheer desire. Their lips moved in sync, never breaking apart even for air.
Kalena’s heart rate suddenly picked up as she felt Ryker move his hands up and down her back. She removed her hands from his hair and grasped his shoulders tightly. Kalena felt her body shake and shiver with the small amounts of pleasure. Ryker licked her bottom lip; asking for entrance. She allowed his tongue access and he carressed her tongue with his.
She moved her hands, and as Kalena did so she also moved his officer shirt off of his body. The shirt fell to the floor leaving him in a plain white shirt. Their tongues continued to wrestle together. Kalena curled her toes as Ryker leaned his mouth down to her neck and began to lick it, up and down. She moaned out loud; which made Ryker bite down on her neck. She knew he found her moan intoxicating due to that action.
Kalena’s breaths became shallow and hoarse as she allowed his tongue to dip down farther; he licked and lapped at her collarbone. His hands ran up and down her body; Kalena’s body heat was being manipulated by these simple yet powerful actions.
Her fingers fumbled as she messed with his shirt. She finally succeeded at getting his shirt off, and let it fall, leaving his abbed chest bare for her to play with. Kalena seductively and slowly ran her hands up and down his chest. She heard Ryker groan against her neck as she kept doing this over and over.
Ryker arched his head up and let out a loud and long moan. Kalena found herself even more turned on as she heard him let out such a cry. As he tried to bring his head back down, Kalena made their lips meet.
Ryker pulled away only for a second, "You’re being unfair...my chest is bare but yours is not." There was a playful tease in his voice. As soon as he ended his hushed and quick sentence their lips met once more.
"If...you...want to see...my breasts...that badly...then...take off the...shirt your...self." Kalena spoke between butterfly kisses that she was now trailing down his neck. She began to lick the sweet spot she had automatically found. Kalena felt Ryker slightly pull away to yank her shirt off, and also discarding the bra.
His hands first started their journey up on Kalena’s shoulders, slowly dragging themselves over her heated body. Once the hands reached Kalena’s rising and falling mounds, the fingers pinched and rubbed against her already hard peaks. A moan escaped her lips, which only caused Ryker's grip on each peak to grow a little rougher. Closing her eyes, Kalena gave herself over to the sweet ecstasy. Before her lust filled mind had the chance to comprehend what he had done, the hands were replaced with his mouth. Kalena’s body began to fidget with the immense pleasure; moans kept ripping through her throat. Rolling the peak on the roof of his mouth, Kalena could feel Ryker smirking from the squirming that he is causing.
Kalena pushed Ryker down onto his back on the bed and straddeled his hips with hers. She could feel his bulge press firmly against her underwear; underneath her skirt. Kalena’s breath hitched as she moved slightly; pressing herself more firmly against his clothed member.
"Oh...Fuck...that felt good." Kalena heard Ryker's husky filled voice ring out. He arched his head backwards and let out a long, ecstasy filled groan.
Kalena let her body go backwards; she now kneeled between Ryker's legs. She leaned her head down to his stomach; she could feel Ryker's heated gaze, watching her every move like a hungry predator. She started to kiss him all over his stomach. Kalena’s hair fell down in little tufts; getting in her way. So she would not have to stop, she felt Ryker brush the pieces of hair away. Kalena stopped kissing and began licking all around his stomach.
She finally grabbed his belt and unbuckled it. Kalena grabbed the hem of his pants and swiftly pulled them down. To her dissapointment she saw boxers with a HUGE bump in them; she was dissapointed about the boxers. Kalena completely removed his pants; tossing them aside somewhere in the bedroom.
Before Kalena could make any other advancements with him, Ryker lurched foward and tackled her to her back. He pressed his bulge to her covered womanhood, making Kalena let loose one of her own throaty moans. She felt Ryker's hands travel to her tight skirt. He grabbed the hem and pulled it down, removing them from her body. Kalena twisted and kept her thighs together, and Ryker pryed her thighs open.
"I do not see how it is embaressing...you look beautiful." She felt him prod a single finger against her damp, black laced underwear. Kalena let out a heavy moan as she felt him move that finger over her clothed womanhood repeatedly.
Ryker finally stopped, but only to grasp her underwear by the lace and pull it down. He finally tossed them away, leaving her bare and naked to him. Ryker gained a look that said he wanted to ravish her, inside and out. Ryker moved his hands to the edge of his boxers and then threw them aside.
Kalena suddenly felt scared of the size of him. Ryker sensed this and placed his hands on her hips, his thighs keeping hers apart. Kalena placed her hands on his shoulders; all of this was to prepare Kalena for the pain, to make her as comfortable as possible.
"Are you a virgin?" Ryker's voice and eyes were so filled with concern for her that it made her heart melt. She nodded her head yes...finding herself unable to speak. "I promise to go easy...just do not scream. Otherwise your neighbors are going to wonder what’s going on. Alright?" Kalena nodded once more, this time biting her lip.
Ryker eased himself in, and Kalena let out a muffled scream as she felt the waves of pain course through her. She bit down on her bottom lip to withstand the sharp scream. Kalena felt the blood well up and fall down her chin from the sharp bite.
Ryker licked her chin and where-ever the blood dripped. When he was done he kissed her torn lips, trying his best to comfort Kalena from the pain.
Moments later he tested her out; slowly moving his hips around. She groaned as she felt the immense pleasure from such a small movement. He now knew Kalena was ready. He quickly began pumping, his hands grasping her waist.
"So...fucking tight...ah fuck..." Ryker let out his pants; Kalena knew, like herself, he was losing himself to the pleasure. His words turned her on even more then she was; if possible.
Kalena’s body rocked back and forth with the amazing speed, making her breasts bounce. Ryker picked up her leg and bent it, putting it over his shoulder; so he could have better access to her body. His speed never let up; he continued to pound into her heat filled body. Kalena could feel something unknown build and pile up inisde of her body; it concentrated inside of her stomach.
He poked that one spot inside Kalena that caused her to gasp. Once he saw this reaction he began to aim, targeting that one spot. He continued to attack it, succeeding at drawing out the pleasure that rushed through her. She let out muffled cries each time he hit the spot. Kalena’s cries slowly began to get louder and louder, and she knew soon enough a scream would rip through her body.
A deadly tidal wave was now set in Kalena, threatening to be unleashed with each powerful thrust. Suddenly she felt her walls clamp tight onto Ryker; starting to milk him of everything he had. A sharp deadly scream built in her throat, but before she could let it out Ryker stifled it with a deep kiss. He shoved his tongue down Kalena’s throat, to make sure she was unable to scream. The tidal wave had crashed right over her; taking over her body. Kalena realized that Ryker had not just kissed her to stop her from screaming, but to stifle his own loud unbearable grunt/moan. Their tongues wrestled with each other as they let the last ripples of their orgasms rip through them.
Their tongues and mouths parted, and Ryker fell to Kalena’s side. He then rolled onto his back and grabbed Kalena so she is on top of him. As Kalena layed on his fast rising and fallng chest she felt his seed spilling out of her, making her slick.
A wide grin grew on his face and Kalena leaned down and kissed that adorable mouth of his.
"Thank you..." Kalena met his eyes and made sure he knew that she did truly love him.
"Why are you saying thank you?" Ryker looked puzzled for a second.
"For sharing the truth with me.” Kalena whispers as she already starts to fall asleep.
Kalena was still surprised. This was Ryker, holding her close as they were both naked - something Kalena thought she never would be in front of...or on top of...her partner in crime. Ryker Keating, the one who had made Kalena pissed off enough, the first time they met, to knock him out cold. The one who Kalena would always go to just to talk. Somehow, it had turned into more than talking this time. She was glad, though. She wouldn't have asked for the night to have turned out any other way. Kalena smiles, and then falls asleep while listening to Ryker's steady heartbeat. She was no longer afraid of what tomorrow would bring.
Kalena got up almost an hour after Ryker had left, and she showers. She then sits around the house for a moment, and then decides to go out on a jog. As she runs through her beautiful neighborhood, she wonders what had gotten into Ryker. They had confessed their love for one another. Kalena was beyond happy. But she was also a bit on the curious side.
Kalena had entered the city. She is wearing her hair up in a pony tail, as well as a tight-fitting athletic tank top and running shorts - all of which are Nike. That was what her closets and drawers mostly consisted of, were name brand athletic clothing.
She starts to slow her pace down, and keeps her eye on a man. He is tall, not Ryker tall, but close enough to be intimidating to most people. He wears dark and heavy clothing, which is odd considering the bright sun and humidity. Kalena watches as he enters a fast food building. Instantly, Kalena hears gun fire. She careens around a corner and swifty somersaults into the building. Kalena reached for her gun, but finally realizes that she is off duty. The man turns slightly to spot Kalena, and then aims his gun at her. No one was injured and everyone was hiding. But if Kalena didn't think fast she'd be the first victim in this robbery.
Kalena knocks a table over and kicks it, knocking it into the man. He staggers backwards, and Kalena instantly jumps over the table and full body tackles the man. His gun clanks against the floor and slides away. Kalena gets the man on his back on the ground, and looks around.
"Can someone get me rope or something?" Kalena calls out. After a moment, someone steps up to Kalena and hands her a rope. She looks at the frightened employee with a smile and a nod, then says, "Thank you."
She takes the rope and ties the man's hands together. Then, she ties him to a pillar in the building. He struggles at first, but with the rope now wrapped completely around his entire body, he was practically frozen in place. Kalena grumbles as she pulls out her phone, and calls the police.
Before anyone could say something, Kalena states: "This is Officer Amador. Please put the first open Officer on the line. I have a robber here. He didn't get far."
"Kalena. This was your day off. You should have left it to someone else to begin with." Melinda sighs.
"No can do. If I wouldn't have acted then someone might have lost a life." Kalena responds.
"Like you?" Melinda nearly scolds.
"Just please send someone with a car to Subway. They'll know which one I'm talking about." Kalena exhales before hanging up.
Melinda looks at the phone as Kalena hangs up, and she shakes her head. She then calls out, "Officer Keating!"
Ryker was doing paperwork.. god how he hated it...soon after a hour they get a call that there is a shooting and hostages at the first national bank...Ryker smiles "today is definitely my day after what happened with kalena.. and now some action" he says to himself as he runs to the car hoping to be the first one on the sceen
Kalena is waiting for someone to show up to collect the guy who is attached to the pole. He is unconscious, as Kalena had tied the rope tight enough around his abdomen. She loosens the rope, so then he won't die from lack of too much oxygen.
Kalena had killed once in her life, and that was a year ago when she had to shoot a psycho who had locked himself in his apartment and threatened to blow up the entire building. Kalena had grabbed a sniper from an officer, aimed at the window, and got a perfect headshot. If she was going to kill, she didn't want the person to suffer.
"I'm surprised we don't get complaints with how long it takes someone to show up." Kalena sighs, pinching the bridge of her nose.
She didn't have time to register the blow. The man had suddenly woken up and slammed a large fist into Kalena's stomach. She nearly crumpled to her knees, but managed to stay standing. She gets in a fighting pose, and the man just stands with fists ready.
Her eyes follow one of his hands, and he whips a pocket knife out of his jacket. Kalena slightly smiles as she crouches a bit more. He charges towards Kalena with his blade before him. Kalena stays completely still. Then, just as he is in mid-swipe, Kalena grabs his wrist. The surprise is clear on his face as he looks down at Kalena. Her smile widening, she uses her flexibility to her advantage...and the heel of her running shoe connects with the bottom of his chin. The man's eyes start to roll to the back of his head as he starts to fall. Kalena lets go of his wrist so he can fall onto his back with a thud.
“God. Even on my day off I’m doing my job…” Kalena says as she hears sirens from a police car in the distance.
He arrives at the bank and puts on a bullet proof vest on and everything... he was part of the group that was going to try to infiltrate the bank.
(Captain) "Are you guys ready..now we go in take out the enemies... now from the camera's we see that we have 14 assailants... now we will split up in teams and each handle a different quadrant... maria, Ryker, Joseph your taking quadrant one" he says as he spoke the plan to everyone else... which was to draw the assailants attention and secure the hostages safety.
So Ryker, Joseph and Maria break into the bank... and head to their area..(Maria) "Oh god.. what if we fail ... i don't know if i can do this" she says
(Ryker) "Relax we can't have you doubting yourself now" he says as one of the gunmen comes around the corner and Ryker grabs him
Ryker covers his mouth while Joseph jabs him in the stomach with his gun causing him to drop to his knee's and then Ryker punches him in the face knocking him out.
Maria looks at him in shock...."What... boxing" he says as they continue...
In their quadrant there were 5 guys watching the hostages....
(Ryker)" Ok maria... you secure the hostages and me and Jo will cover you" he says
She takes a deep breath and nod... soon she bolts out and Ryker shoots one of the gunmen that see her... him and Joseph take out the gunmen and then they all go to secure the perimeter. They let the hostages go and one of the gunmen wake up as it was not a debilitating shot that he had suffered as he lifted his automatic smg and fired many bullets from the sub machine gun.
"MARIA" Ryker says as he jumps in front of her as she was in the line of fire.. taking multiple shots before joseph could react and shot the gunman dead...He had a bullet proof vest but 3 bullets had went through..two through the vest and one in his leg as he drops to the floor.
Kalena watches as the officer takes away the man, and then they nod at each other in recognition.
"What's Ryker up to?" Kalena asks the officer as he gets into the car.
"He's at the bank. There was a pretty nasty robbery. Probably the worst one this year." He responds.
Kalena pinches the bridge of her nose and takes a deep breath. "Of course."
She starts on her way, and the officer shouts, "Where are you going!? You're off duty!"
"So? I took care of that guy didn't I?" Kalena scoffs as she sprints away.
Kalena makes it to the bank. Ryker is her partner, after all. But the officers that were blocking the bank pushed Kalena back, and scolded her. She takes multiple steps back, and then bursts into an all-out sprint. The police men watch in awe as Kalena soars over them, in perfect hurdling position. She lands on her right leg first, and once her left foot touches the ground she is running again.
Kalena crashes through the window, and somersaults. She jumps up to her feet and looks around, spotting Ryker on the ground as Joseph was taking down the last of the thieves. He is startled to see Kalena, who just looks at him. He understood completely, and goes back to what he was doing. Kalena slinks her way over to Ryker, and carefully drags him to a safe area. With quick fingers, Kalena pulls his shirt and vest away. The bullets had gone through the vest, but they were well made. So there wasn't anything to worry about on Ryker's torso. And a shot in the leg was something most of the officers had dealt with before.
"This is why I say you should be staying in the office." Kalena sighs. "We're going to have to take another trip to the hospital now."
"Shut up. I have spidey senses when it comes to you." Kalena states as she tears off his pant leg and examines the bullet wound. She uses one finger to pull out the bullet, and then looks at Ryker, "You got lucky. It didn't get too far. Otherwise, you could have been spending a couple of weeks on crutches. I'd say some patch work and bandaging should do it. Though, you should stay off this leg for a while."
Kalena was working. Due to Ryker's injury, Kalena had been doing a lot of solo work. She is currently at an elderly woman's house, trying to explain that she can't keep her dog chained up outside half-dead. More than anything, it was annoying. Kalena tried a seventh time, and the lady just nods before saying once more, "But he's a filthy animal."
"Then do you not want him?" Kalena questions, raising a brow.
"Of course I want him! He's my dog!" The lady retorts, her brows knitted together.
"I'm going to send in the animal specialists tomorrow. Either you bring the dog inside or it's going to be in someone else's hands. Alright?" Kalena asks, trying to sound as calm as possible. There is a moment of silence, except for the humming of AC.
"Fine." The woman finally snorts, her arms folded over her chest. Kalena sighs in relief, and exits the house. She gets back into her car, and then heads off to the next reported crime. A man in his late thirties who was being a nuisance to another suburb - one that isn't as peaceful as Kalena's. More or less, he was probably drunk. Kalena had dealt with too many of those.
She gets to the scene, and walks up to the man. He leaned to one side as he staggered along, and the alcohol and body odor was a thick and horrible scent around him. It made Kalena gag.
"Sir." Kalena says as she starts to step in front of him. But he kept going. She repeats, "Sir."
He turns and swings a sloppy fist. "Whaddaya want?" He complains.
Kalena sighs. Another idiot in this world was the last thing she wanted to deal with.
Almost four hours later, Kalena had returned to the station. She goes to the bathroom and cleans off her face and hands. She had to help pull a puppy out of a pipe, and it wasn't the worlds cleanest pipe. Kalena felt disgusting, but she wasn't done just yet. She still had another hour before she could call it a day. With a heavy sigh, Kalena presses her forehead against the cool glass mirror. She then pushes away from the sink and exits the bathroom before heading to her office and doing the worst part of the day - paperwork.
Finally, Kalena was done. She grabs her things and heads out to her car. With her shoulders sagged, Kalena begins her journey home. Kalena was about half way out of the city when she saw a man and a woman. He was tugging on her clothes, one hand cupping her breast. Kalena stops, and the street light flickers. She was NOT in the mood.
She steps out of her car and slams the door shut. In her hands are a pair of cuffs. She always kept some equipment in her vehicle. Before the man could say anything, Kalena had taken both of his arms and twisted them, making him yowl in pain. She places the hand cuffs on, and then throws him into the back of her car before hopping in. Kalena starts driving back to the station, her brows knitted together as a scowl formed on her face. The man shuddered and cowered.
"This isn't even a cop car. There's nothing separating me and -" He had started to lean forward and between the front seats, and before he could finish speaking Kalena had elbowed him square in the face. He recoils back and screams, holding his nose.
"Fuck! I think you fucking broke my nose!" He cries out, the tears swelling in his eyes. But Kalena doesn't say a word as she pulls into the station's driveway. She drags the guy into the building and throws him to an officer. "Attempted rape." Is all Kalena says before walking back out.
Kalena then goes on her way home again, clutching tightly onto the steering wheel as if it would help her to not explode.
Kalena pulls into her garage, and then exits her car. She walks into the house through the garage, and takes a look around. It was as quiet as ever, making Kalena sigh. Ryker must have been at home, or still working.
She walks into the kitchen and grabs a bottle of wine and a glass. She sets the cup aside, and just starts to drink out of the bottle while leaning back against the counter. Kalena spots something out of the corner of her eye, but ignores it. For a moment, she thought she had seen a light turn on. But the current darkness of the hallway told Kalena that she was seeing things. With a subtle exhalation, Kalena continues to drink.
"Kalena. You're just losing it now. This was bound to happen." She tells herself as she gently twirls the bottle in her hand.
Kalena places the bottle back into the fridge before heading over to the couch and sitting down. She pulls out a picture book from under the coffee table, and leans back as she flicks through the pages. Kalena looks over at her black-screened phone and then the clock. It was odd. Usually Ryker had at least called by this time. Maybe he had gotten into more trouble. Most likely hurt again.
"That man is going to be the death of me." Kalena tells herself as she looks at the picture of her mother and father, forever smiling.
"I don't see why you didn't just go to the store then, instead of my house. Store is closer." Kalena tells Ryker as she sets the photo album down. She sighs and closes her eyes before taking a deep breath. "Sorry. It's been a long day. I'll go. Just don't touch the wine in the fridge. That's ALL mine." She then grabs her sweatshirt before exiting the house and driving off.
He waits for her to return Ryker prepares a bath for Kalena and makes it as romantic as possible. For instance, he could scatter rose petals over the water, have a favorite incense or scented candle burning, light the room with lots of candles of all kinds. Ryker gets in the tub with her, offers her a foot rub, washes her hair, and dotes on her in every way, taking nothing for himself…for now. Then... having the ring nearby under a towel, he proposes to her.
Kalena has never used the master bathroom or the master bedroom (as it was her mother’s room), and it’s basically the “secret area” of the house; this is where Ryker will decide to propose. Ryker searches the house while Kalena is still at work, and decides to unlock a door that he had never been through – leading to the master bedroom. Ryker continues to search and finds the beautiful master bathroom. (also because Kalena will be worn down after work and usually after a long day she just goes home and washes up). Ryker has been planning to propose to Kalena for almost four months now, but was actually scared to get rejected because he thought that Kalena would want to keep things more professional. But after what the two had ended up doing, Ryker decides to finally ask
Kalena was in shock. She hadn't gone in there since her mother's death. Why would Ryker...
She hisses between her teeth, her grip tightening on the bag as she storms through the master bedroom and into the bathroom, ready to scream at Ryker. Especially since the door to the bedroom had been locked!
"You want to..." Kalena takes a look around the bathroom as if she had just seen a ghost. "Take care of me...?" Her voice becomes faint with confusion.
She throws the bag near the sink and exhales, "This room hasn't been touched in years...same with that bedroom. They're both beautiful. I guess I've been scared to use them, though. And the pain killers are in the bag, Ryker."
Her eyes scan the bathroom. The lights were slightly dimmed, and a multiple candles were placed on the counters. Kalena takes in the scent, and already felt herself begin to calm down. She couldn't quite put her finger on what the smell was, but it was pure and almost brought forth a feeling of ecstasy.
Kalena undresses and looks at Ryker in question. But her heart started to slightly race at the sight of him. Seeing him as she was removing her clothes reminded Kalena of that night, and her face started to burn. Kalena pushes her thoughts aside as she makes her way into the tub. As soon as her soft skin touched the warm waters, every muscle seemed to relax and she breathes out in relief.
