DIAMONDS-Part 6 Motives

                              MOTIVES
"That's interesting".
"Why"?
Thor who was annoyed with Ali threw her a glance that he hoped would shut her up.
Ali ignored him.
"Well" she sniffed. "If you could think through that thick skull of yours, you would be asking questions as to what he is doing with a were cat."
Thor smirked. "Maybe he has a kitten fetish"
Ali rolled her eyes. "Yeah, that's what you would think". Her tone was sarcastic and burned with acid. Thor lost his smugness and frowned at her. He always asked himself  why he did dealings with her. Every time he said that this was going to be the last time he would do  business with Ali-she would draw him into another plan of hers.
"Okay, so what do you think they're doing, besides what we saw"?
Ali cupped Thor's chin with her fingers that sported bright red lacquered  claws. "That is going to be up to you to find what is going on". She ran her nail down  the stubble of his chin.
"And believe me, my darling, there's something going on".
Ali clicked her tongue. "So be a good boy and find out -we need to know now".
"Kaden won't confine in me" he said in a factual tone.
"Then trick him". She waved her hand in the air at Thor as if he was nothing but a fly.
"Use what black magic you have darling". She whirled around to leave but before she disappeared she narrowed her gold eyes at Thor. "Set up another meeting while you're at it and be nice-say he can bring her, you know, just to show that we're sociable". Ali chuckled to herself.
Thor just snorted.
"Yeah, I'll invite them to our tea party".

Rhys didn't trust Kaden and yet she locked lips with him anyway. Even worse, he was standing in her kitchen right this minute. He was a wolf for God's sake!
Kaden watched Rhys rip open a lid to some double chocolate chip ice cream. She grabbed two bowls and started stabbing into the ice cream like she was using a knife. He watched her plop the heaping tablespoons of ice cream into the bowls with such a force that he thought the bowls would break.
"Do you always have ice cream for lunch"?
She didn't respond and continued her assault on the ice cream and the bowls.  Kaden grabbed the hand  that was holding her weapon of choice-the spoon.
They locked eyes.
"What are you doing" he asked her in a calm voice.
"Making lunch, what does it look like". She wiggled her nose at him.
"Interesting lunch menu and do you always do it so aggressively"?
Rhys gritted her teeth and ripped her hand out of his grasp. She shoved the bowl of ice cream across the counter. "Enjoy" she smirked at him.
Kaden watched her scowl into her ice cream. He filled his teaspoon and held it up to her. "Would you like to try mine"?
She looked at his spoon and opened her mouth. Rhys waited to see what he would do.
Kaden lifted the spoon to her mouth then snatched it away and put it in his own mouth.
"Bastard" she said.
"If you want my ice cream I could put some on my chest and you could lick the cream as it melts. You love to lick your cream". He was being very sexy and a smart ass at the same time.
She raised an eyebrow at him. "Do you fantasise me doing that"? Rhys tried to hide a grin but was unsuccessful.
"Would you like to hear my fantasies kitten"? His silver greys were seducing her.
She chuckled. "You would love that wouldn't you pup"?
Kaden just smiled. "So would you, kitten." He opened his shirt and scooped up some ice cream. Rhys mouth fell open as he watched her watch him. She grabbed his hand before any ice cream touched his hot skin.
"You don't get any lunch now and you have to go". Her face was flushed and she could feel the heat in her cheeks.
"Kiss me and I'll leave, if you don't I'll take the ice cream and you upstairs."
She stared at him in disbelief and narrowed her gaze at him. "You wouldn't".
"Try me and I know you would like nothing better than to try me". He was grinning and his silver greys were full of mischief.
"If I kiss you, you have to behave and leave."
He was grinning from ear to ear. He shrugged. "Kiss me and see what happens. Come on, you're a risk taker".
Before he could think she grabbed his shirt and pulled him toward her. She kissed him but didn't catch him by surprise. She wanted to pull away but she wanted more of his taste. She could taste the cold chocolate and the heat  from him at the same time. Rhys just wanted more of it.
Kaden crawled over the counter to Rhys and took her in his arms. She was getting carried away now as she wrapped her legs around him.
Kaden held her firmly against him and started for the stairs. When Rhys realised where they were going she dropped her legs and pulled him toward the door.
"Out you go" she said in a breathless tone. She knew her cheeks were a fiery red.
"Oh come on, you've lit this fuse, you can't put it out and you know it".
She stood up straight. "Out you go" she said with a firm voice. Rhys marched to the door and opened the door.
Kaden smirked and held up his hands in surrender. "I'll go baby but you and I will have our time".
He brushed past her and on his way out brushed his lips against hers. She reacted with a moan but managed to pull herself away and pushed him out.
Kaden touched his lips. Her taste was still with him as he walked up the street.
"What, you didn't perform and she kicked you out"?
Kaden didn't respond to Thor"s rude comment. He could hear him coming up behind him.
"What do you want"?
"Hey buddy is that any way to treat an old friend"?
"First of all you and I are neither buddies or old friends and you never answered me".
"Let me buy you a beer and we'll talk."
"No thanks Thor, I have things to do, see ya". Kaden went ahead of him leaving him but not before Thor's voice stopped him from going on.
"Ali wants you and you're little kitten friend to come to a meeting tonight."
"How does Ali know about..."
Thor chuckled and shook his head. "When you two make out  on the street, it's no secret".
"Why does she want her there"?
Thor just shrugged. "I don't know, maybe she just wants all to have a little kitten fun".
Kaden flew at him.
