Snippet Saturday - Color (Black)

by Myla Jackson 

Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon with this short story of approximately 8700 words. Join Charli in her second adventure.
Charli Sutton had sex with a man in a black cowboy hat in Judge Stephen's pool and she can't figure out who it was. Return to the Ugly Stick Saloon with Charli as she struggles to come to grips with her dirty little tryst. Work through the clues as she tries to discover the identity of the stranger who'd rocked her world in the pool.

Secretly hoping for a repeat performance, she isn't disappointed when not one, but two men in black cowboy hats waylay her on the highway home to Temptation, granting her every woman's fantasy of having two hunky hotties at once.

As she rounded a curve in the road, two sets of headlights flashed in her eyes, a blue light flashed over the top of them. Charli slammed her foot to the brake, screeching her SUV to a stop just in time to keep from hitting the two vehicles completely blocking both sides of the road.

Raising a hand to shield her eyes from the overwhelming brightness, Charli shifted into park and waited. Sometimes the state troopers performed road blocks on weekend nights to check for drug-runners, human-trafficking or drunk drivers. She'd heard about road blocks, but had never been caught in one of them.

A tall figure approached the side of her vehicle, wearing a dark cowboy hat, dark jeans and a black shirt.

Her heart leaped into her throat and the fingers curled around the steering wheel tightened. She drew in a deep breath and berated herself for even thinking about her cowboy when this patrolman was only out doing is job. Letting out the breath, she reached for the button to roll down the window. "What seems to be the problem?"

The lights behind him cast the man's face in the shadows. "Ma'am, please step out of your vehicle."

At that point, she noticed he wasn't wearing a badge or any other insignia proclaiming his connection with law enforcement. And that voice... The man's deep, rich tone sparked fire in Charli's blood and memories of last night. Her heart raced and she fought to form coherent words. "Am I being accused of something?"

"No, ma'am. Just routine orders," he said.

That bottomless, soul-melting voice flowed over her like liquid chocolate. The same voice she'd heard on the phone and in the pool the night before.

"We're here to search everyone passing on this road."

Search? The very word brought to mind endless possibilities. "Could you show me some credentials?" Her breath hitched in her chest, her body heating. It was him—her cowboy in the black hat. She peered upward, unable to make out his facial features. Damn. If she could see his identification, she might put a name to this man. "How do I know you are who you say you are?"

He reached into his back pocket, removed his wallet and flipped it open and closed in a flash. "Satisfied?"

"Hardly." She wouldn't be satisfied until she knew who he was and got a little more of what she'd received in the pool the previous night.

"Now, if you'll please step out of the car, my partner and I will get down to business."

Her hand on the door handle, she hesitated, her pulse pounding. "Partner?"

Another man, also wearing a black cowboy hat, stepped up to her door, grabbed the handle and pulled it open. "Yes, ma'am. If you'll step out of the vehicle, we can conduct this search and get you off in no time."

The second man was equally as tall and as broad-shouldered as her cowboy from the night before. A shiver of need whizzed across Charli's skin. Two cowboys? Was she dreaming again? Wasn't it every girl's fantasy to have two hunky cowboys at one time? Or was it only in her perverted mind?

Despite the inner warnings going off in her head, she couldn't stop herself from stepping out of the SUV. As soon as her feet touched the ground, she was yanked into the first cowboy's arms, kissed soundly, then spun away and pushed up against the hood of her vehicle.

Surprise had her reaching out to stop herself from crashing into the metal. Cool handcuffs snapped onto one wrist and then the other before she could protest. With her hands bound together, she tried to push away from the SUV and stand straight. "Hey, what's with the cuffs?"

"Routine, ma'am." Her cowboy leaned over her shoulder, his breath stirring the tendrils of hair over her ear. 

"Now spread your legs." He braced one of his boots between her feet and kicked her right foot outward.

Forced to spread them, Charli's belly tightened, her pulse racing. "What are you going to do?"

"We have to search you."

"For what?" she asked.

"For a few minutes. Now silence or we'll be forced to perform a strip search."

"Oh, boys, I don't think you know quite what you're doing," she teased, frustrated that she had her back to them and couldn't see their faces. "Are you even law enforcement officials?"

"Never said we were. Have a problem with that?" The second cowboy leaned close to her ear and pushed her long hair to the side. "My partner says you've broken a law or two lately. Sounds like a punishable offense." He nipped her earlobe.

Charli sucked in a sharp breath, the slight pain on her ear only making her hornier. "What exactly did he tell you?"

Her cowboy from the night before reached around her to tug her tank top hem from her denim shorts. "Only the truth. Nothing but the truth." He kissed the curve of her neck as his hands slipped beneath her shirt, sliding across her skin, inching upward.

The other man found the rivet on her shorts and flipped it free of the hole, sliding the zipper downward. "The truth being that you two had all the fun without me."
