“Men Leo. Any man, what do I give off? I don’t dress provocative; I know I’m glammed up some times but…” He turned her to face him.
“Lita, I don’t do vague. You are asking me about you and men, I need more details.” She quietly told him what occurred with Professor Donovan. She felt his energy change and his muscles tighten.
“He did… let me just say this. You did nothing. He’s been known to be grimy. He thinks I want his job but this. Cool, I got it.”
“I kind of threatened to drag him by his throat before turning him in and telling you.” Her words made him relax and smile slightly.
“You should have drug his punk ass. But believe this, I got you. Lita, I need to know these kinds of things. You’re my woman…”
She loved hearing him say his woman. The first time he made love to her and was deep inside he told her, Lita Mitchell, you’re with me, I’m your man, and you’re my woman.
