He flicked the knife open and a shiver rolled over her skin. Head bent, knees spread, she was the perfect picture of submission, if you over looked her clenched fists.
Ethan smiled at that little sign of her spirit. He slid the blade under her chin, and exerted just enough pressure to force her chin up. Eyes tight shut, she refused to look at him, and he barely caught her whispered, “Yes, Sir.”
He lowered his voice and allowed the knife to sink in deeper.
"Look at me."
Her eyes fluttered open, and she stared up at him. He let his gaze slide down her body until it rested on her clenched fists.
One by one, those fingers unfurled. Goosebumps covered her skin, and the fine sheen of arousal coated her flesh.
Ethan circled her, and she moaned when he slid the knife across her throat in a wide sweep, over her neck, until it once again rested under her chin.
The urge to mark that skin, to draw a thin trail of blood coursed through his veins, but he'd pushed her enough for now.
"Good girl. Now, that wasn't so hard, was it?"
