The Marriage Contract

Erica Stone




I'd never been a big believer in love at first sight - until I met Marshall.

I had gotten used to being the dominant one in all of my relationships - the one who sets the first date, who decides it's time to start having sex, the first one to realize that things aren't working out. So when Marshall approached me three months ago while I was bar hopping with my friend's bachelorette party and asked me to dance, I normally would've declined with some snappy, scathing response. But one look in his eyes changed all that. There was just this spark that passed between us - it was like that moment in a romantic comedy when the protagonist and his love interest meet each other for the first time and you just know right then and there that no matter what else happens, those two people are going to end up together by the end. I don't even remember telling him yes, but I must have, because the next thing I knew he had me out on the floor, literally sweeping me off my feet. It was magical. He took me home that night and we had the absolute best sex of my life. Two weeks later, I moved in with him. Last night, over dinner, he popped the question and I said yes.

I know what you're thinking: I'm moving way too fast with this guy. But you haven't met him. He's unbelievably handsome, so much fun to be around and the just the hottest thing I've ever seen between the sheets. I'm talking white-knuckle grip on the covers, back arched, screaming-his-name good. He makes me come like a fountain. And it hasn't gotten boring: no matter how often I fuck him, it's like I want more. I swear, my panties just drop for him the moment he walks in the door, the moment he walks in the door, home from another long day at the pharmaceutical company. Oh, did I mention he's rich, too? His company patented some kind of breakthrough drug, something to do with pheromones - my eyes just kind of glaze over whenever he starts with the science talk. From what I hear, though, you're going to be seeing a lot about it in the next couple of years.
