From Protector of the Grey House:
“Call those in my service here tomorrow. I wish them to bear witness to the ceremony.”
Joseph stepped away from the wall, knowing the conversation was almost done. “Of course.”
Vincent stepped away from his side of the wall and started toward the stairs. “Thank you.”
Vincent walked with increasing speed to and up the stairs. He heard Joseph snickering but ignored his friend, wondering what stage of undress Natalia would be in. He crossed his sitting room in less than a second, noticed her absence in the bedroom and went into the bathroom, where she was standing by the mirror, drying her hair. She was in her silk robe, and it was untied and open. Every part of his body wanted to grab her and possess her quickly. Except there was something they needed to take care of. He went to her slowly and pressed himself against her, pulling the hair dryer out of her hand and turning it off as he placed it on the counter.
Natalia leaned into him, letting her thoughts drift from her mind. His hands were wandering up and down her torso, massaging her skin through the silk.
