Introducing Dante: For the Ladies that Love the Bad Boys
Dante strode to his desk and gestured for Lilly to take one of the facing chairs.
She stepped lightly, her eyes flashing over the room on her way to the chair. She relaxed in the chair and crossed her well-shaped legs.
He wondered how the simple act could be so erotic. “So you can dance.” He leaned back in his chair and lit a cigarette. He tossed the lighter on the desk. “We need some acting as well as dancing.”
“What type of acting?” she asked, her dark eyes direct.
He blew a lungful of smoke at the ceiling. “The kind without clothes.”
“I will perform nude, but no sex.”
We’ll see about that. “I’ll pay you six grand.”
“I pay you eight—you’ll need to buy some tits.”
She stood and reached for her bag.
“Okay, okay, I’ll give you eight grand for twenty minutes film time. And film rights.”
She sat back down. “I only work for cash.”
“I’ll have a contract sent to you tomorrow.” He reached to the ashtray and stabbed out his smoke. He was off center, irritated that she had manipulated him into watching her perform on the phone. He wasn’t stupid, however. This woman was hot, and she did intrigue him, some. She was a gymnast, a ballerina, and seductress all in one, and he was a businessman. She had potential.
He opened the desk drawer and took out a small folded piece of paper. He opened the envelope and tilted a pile of coke onto the glass-topped desk. He was an old-fashioned guy; it was good form to seal the deal. He liked the rituals: paper, envelope, razor blade for chopping. He chopped the coke and spread it into four parallel lines. He took a hundred dollar bill from his pocket and began rolling it into a straw.
He raised an eyebrow. “Line?”
“Why the frown?” he asked.
“Today is the first day of the Chinese new year. You’re asking for trouble using a razor blade on New Year’s Day.”
“No shit? I must have missed the public service bulletin.”
“You may cut off good fortune for the rest of the year.”
She smiled for the first time. She had a pretty little mouth with nice white teeth. He’d like that mouth around his cock.
