within its organization is the exclusive Red Kiss
Executive Club. You don’t ask to join, they ask you. The
only way in is by exclusive invitation and no one knows
how that process works. You can’t miss them because
the members wear the coveted RKC Black & Gold

holding interviews today for an executive assistant
position. So far none of the applicants have really
sparked any interest or made him sit up and take notice
until today. Today a very striking woman walked
into his life and shook his world.
Strausen your last appointment is here.” Said his
secretary over the intercom.
you Carol, send her in please.” he said standing,
adjusting his tie and cuffs waiting for her entrance. The
door slowly opened with a gloved hand as she walked in
taking slow strides toward his sprawling desk. Mark is
immediately mesmerized and smitten by her. She’s
dressed in a black mini one piece, black stockings, mid
length black gloves, a small black clutch under her arm,
red lipstick, and shoulder length curly auburn hair.
Mr. Strausen, I’m Katy Wilson.” She said pulling off
her gloves reaching out to shake his hand in total
confidence that she has his undivided attention. He
is almost lost for words, a very rare occurrence for
him. He reached out and shook her hand.
hello Miss. Wilson, please, has a seat. Can I get you
anything to drink?” He offered while walking towards
the fully stocked wet bar.
thank you, I’m good.”
if I…” he started.
help yourself, I don’t mind. I’m sure it’s
been a long day filled with interviews and here I’m
the last one, you must be exhausted.” She said looking
him up and down while he stood with his back to her
fixing himself a drink.
until now I haven’t really seen anyone quite like you. You
must come from good stock.” He said dropping a couple
of ice cubes in a short tumbler; pouring it half full
with scotch. He walked over to his desk and took

& Kline law firm just a few blocks from here.”
I remember having a few dealings with them over a couple

don’t mind me asking?”
doing fine. He’s getting ready to retire. Thanks
couldn’t take his eyes off of her as she looked
intently at him when she spoke throughout their
interview. Everything about her is made of the
woman in his dreams. Her laugh, her smile, her eyes, the
crossing of her perfect long legs, everything is perfect
and in place. He knew before the interview was over
that she is “the one”.
, when can you start?” he said with a smile standing
to shake her hand.
mean I got the position?” she gasped.
Unless you have a better offer, the job is yourr
if you want it. But I understand if you need to
take some time to think about it.”
um, I don’t need any time to think about it, yes, yes
I accept. I can start on Monday if that’s
satisfactory?” she said smiling pulling on her gloves.
it is then. Just spend a few minutes with Carol to fill
out some basic paperwork on your way out and I’ll see
you on Monday.” He said smiling and thankful he
hadn’t giving the job to someone else. ‘She’s
perfect’ he said to himself ‘just perfect’.
2 – Funny seeing you here
been two days since his interview with Katy. He
couldn’t get her off his mind. He day dreamed
during meetings of what it would be like to be with her. Even
at the RKC Club meetings she is caressing his mind. His
wife Vivian didn’t mind him bringing new girls into
the club, but having an affair is not an option.

tried to come between them or over flirted with Mark. But
just as a quick as she went off she would be apologizing
and patched things up. Mark actually liked her
little tirades because it often led to awesome make up
Friday and Mark is off to his happy hour haunt called
The Realm. It’s a night club around the corner
from the office. He goes there while Vivian is at her
weekly total body spa treatment. He liked hanging out
with the young RKC Club members and mingling with the
“outsiders”. The place is packed as usual, the
music is blaring from all sides, big screen TV’s
displaying war and violent film footage.
on the rocks Shelia!” He shouted to his favorite human
blond bombshell bartender. He looked around at the
crowd. “This is the life and to think we walk among
them and they don’t even know it.” He said to
himself feeling the pride of how far through evolution
he and his clan had come. Back in the old days they
wouldn’t dare come out in day light much less dress in
suits and run businesses. ‘It’s a new age and a new
time.’ He toasted to himself holding his drink up in
the air. Just as he was putting it down he heard a

standing next to him with a Martini in her hand swaying
to the music in the background looking intently at him
as she did in the interview.
he gasped in disbelief.
Strausen, I can’t believe you’re here. How are
Mark is almost at a loss for words. What was it about
her that just stops him dead in his tracks? No
other woman has this affect over him, not even Vivian.
I’m fine and you.” He said quickly trying to gather

time, I promise.” She beamed.

aware that he is. She’s dressed in a black one
piece latex mini dress that cupped her butt, a
blonde wig, four inch spiked strappy heels, and
red polished fingernails.
she asked in a coy tone looking at him over the top of
her Martini glass smiling.

her up and down. She could feel his gaze fixed on
it’s Friday and I’m out with my girlfriends, you
know just have a little fun and celebrating my new job.
I’m sorry if I’m offending you. You probably have a
professional expectation that must be maintained at all
times if I’m to be your assistant” She said looking
down at the floor in near tears.
no, no, no, no, Katy, please” he said holding up his
hand… “I’m a modern man and these are modern
times. Look around you, most of the people in here
are my employees. Some are dressed in far more “out
there” outfits than you.” He said trying to assure
Are you sure?’ she said reaching for a napkin touching
up her eyes.
Katy, it’s okay, now go back and tell your friends
that your entire evening is on me, whatever you want.”
He said putting the tip of his index finger under her
chin waiting for her smile. Slowly she began to
gradually smile feeling that Mark was not lying to her.

down, I promise.” She said smiling walking backwards
before melting into the crowd. She blew him a kiss
just as she faded out of sight.

didn’t want the scent of Vivian’s perfume linger on

bottom of the wet bar.

sat quietly on the large high back leather chair and
stared at the large black door of his office. She
was dressed to the nine’s and ready to blow him away
on her first day. Her father took her shopping over
the weekend. She’s dressed in a stunning white
Donna Karan with a large four inch black waist high
belt, black gloves, black and white Manolo Blahnik high
heels, and a matching Dolce&Gabbana bag.

before going into Mark’s office.

shake his. He just stood and looked at her. He
couldn’t find the words to respond. She was more
striking that he ever imaged.
my Katy, you are dressed to kill this morning.” He
finally said slowly releasing her soft hand.
I bet you say that to all the girls around here Mr.
me, you look awesome. I took the liberty of
ordering coffee and tea, would you like a cup?” he
offered looking at the tray.
but please, allow me. After all, I am your
assistant.” She said.

pour them both coffee.
she looked over her shoulder at him. He grinned admiring
her slender hips and perfect calves. She knew he was
looking at her.

handing him his coffee then sitting in the adjacent
chair next to him.
I had Carol upload my full schedule in your blackberry
that you must have with you at all times.” He said
handing it to her. “Our first appointment is an hour. I’m
meeting with some new buyers from Macy’s.”
sir, Macy’s one hour.” She repeated back to him
scrolling down the appointment list on the blackberry.
I have a meeting with my banker after that. You
won’t need to attend. Then off to lunch.”
Am I attending lunch?” she said looking up from the
blackberry. Mark smiled and nearly laughed a little
at her question.

on cloud nine. His day has started off just as he
planned. Their meeting with the buyers was a chance
to see her in action and she was flawless. Mark is
eyeing the clock as the meeting with his RKC staff was
coming to an end. ‘Shit, come on 12:30’ he thought
to himself watching the red second hand on the clock
sweep around in what seemed like an eternity.
if we have nothing else to discuss, meeting is
adjourned. Keep up the good work.” He said
standing watching the clock as he walked out the door. ‘Good,
I’ve five minutes to spare.’ he thought to

the elevator and began looking around for Katy. ‘Where
is she?’ he thought as he began to feel a wave of
panic wash over him. The elevator bell dinged
behind him. He turned around. Out stepped Katy
with a smile.

Carol, is Mark in?” she asked pausing before opening
his door looking at Carol. Carol was in shock and
didn’t know what to say. Vivian wasn’t due to
come into the office until much later. She knew she
hadn’t met Katy and the way Katy is dressed today shit
would surely hit the fan.

this week.” Said Carol trying to calm her down. Vivian
released the door handle.
did they go?”
I guess I’ll go meet this Miss. Wilson since no one
around here seems to inform me of the people we are
Mrs. Strausen.” Said Carol in a low voice.
don’t you call him and tell him I’m coming either,

impatiently started pressing the button. "Come

barked out at her driver.

knew Vivian was going straight to The Capital Grille and
blow a gasket of epic proportions. Vivian’s
threat of not calling Mark is very real, but she is
loyal to Mark no matter what the circumstances are. She
watched the elevator numbers trickle down to make sure

two, one’ Carol recited to herself then quickly sent a
text message to Mark. ‘RED BULL-911 – DART! She

Vivian was on a rampage. DART meant, Delete After

then headed straight for the restroom.

looking down at this blackberry then looked towards
Mark’s table. Both their eyes synched up as they
nodded to each other. Just as Peter turned around
Vivian is storming through the door.
afternoon Mrs. Strausen.” Said Peter as pleasantly as
held up her hand and made a bee line straight for
Mark’s private table. Mark pretended to be
reading the menu.
Mark, where’s your friend!” she started in on him.
calmly put down the menu and looked up at Vivian.
darling, my friend?” he calmly replied.
the shit, you know who the hell I’m talking about. Your
new little tramp!” she firmly said with her arms
crossed scanning the room glaring figuring she was
hiding at another booth.
I’m having lunch with my new assistant if that’s who
you’re referring to. She’s dropping off the
contracts from her fathers law firm, Smith, Wilson &
Kline. Her father is Steven Wilson, remember him?
He was at our company anniversary party. They’re
firming up the our new deal with

didn’t you tell me about her? You had all weekend.
What bull shit story you got for that one?” said
Vivian figuring she had him in her cross hairs. Just
as he was about to answer Katy came to the table with an
legal sealed envelop in her hand.
Strausen, well at last I get to meet you. My father
has told me about you and here you are. He raved about
you after meeting you in person at your companies
anniversary party. I’m glad to be part of the team.”
sized her up before responding. She really admired
her stunning dress and the Dolce&Gabbana bag. She
figured Katy is “daddy’s little girl” and would
give her anything she wanted. But she had to make a
statement and mark her turf. She demanded respect.
you’re the new hired help.” She snipped at her.
yes Mrs. Strausen, I started this morning. I’m
dropping off the contracts that my father has reviewed
and Mr. Strausen asked me to stay for lunch to go over
them. Care to join us?”

looked legit and she couldn’t counter with any type of

people. I’ll grab a bite to eat there. We’ll
visit later, let’s say 4pm my office?” she said
putting on her coat buttoning it up looking at Mark then
back to her.
Mrs. Strausen, 4pm, your office, got it.” Said Katy
entering the meeting in her blackberry.
well, Mark, I’ll see you later.”

looked at Mark and smiled. The backup planned had
worked. Peter had one of his staff take a legal
envelop with blank paper in it to Katy in the bathroom
with instructions on what to say. Mark had his
blackberry on “talk” so Katy and Peter could listen
in on the conversation.

she would have went completely off and you would have

winking at Katy.

meeting with Vivian at four o’clock.

Katy. She keeps looking at the clock. “You’d think
she would be early for our first meeting.” She said
under her breath glaring at the clock for the tenth

Said Vivian walking over to the window looking out at

minutes then paged Marsha to send her in.

stopping in front of her desk.
afternoon Katy, please have a seat.”
how was lunch?” Vivian asked as soon as she sat down.
was very good. It’s my father’s favorite place. I
wasn’t expecting Mr. Strausen to pay for my meal. I
could have easily had it charged to my fathers house

She said hoping to trip her up.
it was. I dropped the contracts back off at my fathers
could feel the back of her neck getting hot. The more
she looked at Katy the more peeved she was that she was
at lunch with Mark. She wanted to make sure that Katy
wasn’t trying to turn it to something more.
any more lunch plans this week?” Vivian asked glaring
that I have scheduled.” She said calmly looking at her
blackberry. Nope, none so far. Carol uploaded his
complete schedule into my blackberry and there’s no
complete schedule, why do you need his complete
Strausen said that I’m to know his complete schedule
at all times and to never be without my blackberry.”
Vivian’s eyes widen at her response then she leaned
forward over her desk.
just so you and I are clear on one thing, you are his
executive assistant and nothing more. If you have any
other plans, be advised that I act swiftly and don’t
need his permission to fire you or anyone else around
clearly understand Miss Strausen. My plans are to grow
with the company. I don’t see myself as an executive
assistant forever. I want to learn from the best and who
better than Mr. Strausen.
My educational background is in International
Business and law and I think I’ll be an excellent
asset to the company in other areas in time.”
calmed down after hearing her response, especially the
part about not being his executive assistant forever.
I think in time you’ll be able to move up in the
company. I know I seemed a little over protective of
Mark today but I just didn’t want anyone to get the
wrong impression of seeing you two together. I’m sure
you can see my point.”

left her office with a wicked smile on her face as she
stood waiting for the elevator. “That bitch doesn’t
have a clue about what I’m up to and she hasn’t seen
anything yet.” She whispered to herself looking at her
reflection in the mirrored elevator doors. The doors
opened with no one in the elevator which is what she was
hoping for. She pressed the Parking level 1 button
instead of going back to her office then pressed a speed
dial number on her blackberry as she got closer to her
Mark? I’ll be at the Realm in twenty minutes.”
6 – “Vivian will never find out”
Mark was very impressed with the way Katy handled
herself at lunch. Being
put on the spot like that and following the ‘on the
fly plan’ further reinforced his decision to hire her.
Well that and being drop dead gorgeous.
He texted her to meet him at the Realm after her
meeting with Vivian.
He wanted to know how the meeting went and to
make sure that whatever she discussed with Vivian would
match whatever he would say to her later tonight at
knew Vivian would be grilling him about their lunch.
He could see Katy walking towards him.
He waved at her from his private table.

from him. Mark
looked at her with craving eyes.

looking and pointing at his ring.
it’s by private invitation only.
No one ever knows when or if they’ll get an
invitation, but I think you’re on your way to being a
good candidate for membership.” He said sitting back
looking intently at her.
Katy knew a little about the RKC club.
A couple of the guys were talking about the club
in the break lounge.
She flirted as much information from them as she
knew they had been checking her out.
hope that one of these days I’ll get the invitation.
I’ll continue to work hard to prove to you that
I am worthy of being a RKC Club member.” She said
crossing her legs, looking directly into his eyes as she
took a sip of her Martini.
She could feel him coming onto her and more
importantly wanting her more than Vivian.
things come with hard work and you’re on the right
up with me and covering my tracks like today and
you’ll go far. As
my executive assistant, you more power that you think.
But I’m sure in time you’ll learn how and
when to use it. You
will know more about me than any one else.
Carol has been with me for eighteen years and she
is indispensable. Stick
with me and you’ll become indispensable too.” Said
Mark trying to gain her confidence and loyalty.

time and demonstration of her loyalty would be required
to make sure she would get an invitation to the RKC

loyalty to you and RKC.
I’ll never let you down.” She said with a
wicked smile crossing her legs again but slower.
He looked at her long perfect legs then back up
what of my wife Vivian?” he cautiously asked.
Katy knew exactly what he was asking.
you said earlier today Mr. Strausen…“ she paused and
took the last sip of her Martini then stood up to leave.
“All I have to do is; do as you say and follow your
lead when it comes to her.
I think that solves that problem don’t you?”
grinned a devilish grin looking up at her. “Katy,
we’re going to get along just fine.
I’ll see you tomorrow.”
then, enjoy the rest of your evening Mr. Strausen and
I’ll see you in the morning.” She said walking
backwards so he could get a good long look at her then

asked trying to get a feel for her mood.
yes Mr. Strausen, I can’t wait.
I’ve been shopping around for the perfect gown

I’ve narrowed it down to three.

“I’m glad I hit one for the team.”

corner near her. She
looked up at him. Mark
felt like a majestic warrior being so close to her.
He looked down at his RKC black and gold ring.
I think somebody might be getting closer to getting one
of these soon.” He said looking at her slender neck
and shoulders then into her blue eyes. He wanted to show
her the tips of his fangs but felt all things would come
in time. Her
eyes lit up as she looked at his ring then slowly up to

arched his left brow, smiled and stood in front of her
as she began to stand up to leave.

intentionally waited for him to stand first so she could

flipped her hair over her shoulder.

I’m sure by that you meant business.
I know all too well of Vivian’s temper.
Her half human side gets the best of her whenever
she sees you with another woman.
But you’d think by now she would know that the
Von Strausen legacy requires us to have several women to
bare our children. That’s
how we have survived and evolved over the centuries.
Without the breeding we would not be able to walk
in the light of day, eat table food, and prosper on the
surface through the RKC Corporation.

Vivian’s gaze wash over him. ‘What is this about?
Am I getting fired?’ he thought to himself
waiting for her to speak.
He’s been with the company for four years and
one of Vivian’s many legion of brown nosers.
She chose him for his chiseled handsome model
looks, blonde hair, blue eyes and he’s single, a big
requirement for your plan.

beads of sweat began to form over his brow as he

he’ll never get into the RKC Executive club.

forward… “Now here’s your assignment. First, what
we talk about from here on is strictly between us.
You are not to speak of your assignment to
anyone.” She said pointing a finger at him.
“I’m sure you know of Katy Wilson, my
husband’s executive assistant?”
you find her attractive?” she said with an arched
heart skipped a beat at the question.
He thinks she’s hot and had thought about
asking her out but decided it wouldn’t be a good idea
being that she was Mark’s assistant.
Others have tried to make conversation with her
from time to time but she politely shuts him down.
It’s like she’s on a mission but no one knows
who she is pursuing, definitely not any one around the
office that he could tell.
She did speak to him a couple of times in passing
but that’s about it.
He looks back at Vivian.
Miss Strausen. She’s a very attractive woman.
I’ve thought about asking her out but haven’t
gotten around to it.” He responded cautiously.
now it’s time to get around to it.
I want you to try and gain her interest.
I think if you increase your efforts you might
get her attention.”
Vivian can see the concern on Trevor’s face
cut to the chase Trevor, I think she is trying to start
something with my husband and I don’t like it.
I can feel it.
I don’t know what she’s up to but I’m going
to put a stop to it!” Vivian could feel her jealously
rising faster than she could control it.
The sheer thought of Katy being in Mark’s arms
makes her feel like a volcano deep down inside.

He knows too much to back out and if he did

Then he quickly realizes the opportunity to move

what she was counting on.

went about the rest of his day trying to figure out how
to get things started between him and Katy.
He knew she went to The Realm club for happy hour
nearly everyday. ‘Perhaps
a few drinks and some sweet talk might open the door a
little. I’ll drop by there after work and see if she
comes by.’ He thought to himself watching her walk
down to her office.

She lifted it out of the box and held it up to

“Do I like it?
I love it! You didn’t have to get me this for

I made a few calls and found out that this is one of the
three that you were considering and it’s my favorite.
I thought this one said Katy the most.
I hope you don’t mind.”

couldn’t believe she called him by his first name, but

He figured it was best to just show up at the

He watched the elevator numbers trickle half way

He quickly got in and sat low enough to see the
other cars passing by.
Katy’s was the second one. He started his car

that’s the good thing about a Sharpie, the ink last a

This will be undisputed proof to Vivian that she
can count on him to get to Katy.

nearly time to get ready for the ball.
Katy is standing under the shower feeling the
drizzling water wash over her body like a pouring
waterfall. She then begins to fantasize about Mark being
with her, feeling his hands stroking her arms, her hips,
and her thighs.

me, and then gently piercing my neck for the first time

one last time before putting it on and began to smile,
feeling that nothing will stop her tonight from having
her prize. The gown fit her perfectly.
Her hair is pulled up with Greek Goddess

She slips on her shoes, reaches for her purse and
looks at herself in the mirror to make sure everything
is perfect. She
feels and looks like Cinderella as she turns around in
the mirrors. The
full length gown that hovers just above the floor is
nothing short of drop dead gorgeous. The limousine is
pulling up to her driveway to pick her up.

She held his hand as she leaned down to get in.
Katy and may I say you look divine too.” Mark said
leaning forward to hold her other hand as she slid in
next to him on the long smooth black leather seat.
My God! Mark! I
can’t believe you’re here!” she shouted out of
excitement seeing him more handsome than she has ever
seen him. The
black tuxedo, crisp white shirt, black bow tie, black
and gold RKC cuff links, he is so handsome she
couldn’t take her eyes off of him.
She is at a loss for words.

blazer and waving to the applauding crowd.
Katy loops her arm in Marks as they began to walk
up the long stairway leading to the main entrance.
Trevor has arrived minutes before them and was
about to step through the main entrance when he turns
around to see what the applause is about and sees Mark
and Katy coming up the stairs. ‘Fuck me!’ he gasped
to himself not believing his eyes. ‘Vivian is going to
be furious. I
better go tell her before she finds out from someone
else.’ He turns and starts scanning the main room for
Vivian. ‘Shit where is she?
They’re almost here!’ Finally he spots Vivian
talking to the head butler.
He makes a bee line straight for.

She turns around and gives him an annoyed look.

taking the sauce away from her.

“Yeah, go ahead and smile while you can

She mutters under her breath glaring back at her.
Mark keeps looking ahead at his father.
Katy excuses herself and leaves for the restroom.
Vivian decides to follow her.
Katy is touching up her lips when Vivian walks in
glaring at her in the mirror.

started Vivian grabbing her by the arm turning her to
face her. “Look at me when I’m talking to you.”
Vivian, don’t be mad, I’m only going after what was
yours and making it mine.” Said Katy looking intently
into Vivian’s eyes while forming a smug smile.

I’m going to get rid of you just like all the other

I’m Mark’s first and only wife so you can
just get those thoughts of him divorcing me to marry
your little prissy ass out of your mind.”
Katy smiled at her…
I appreciate your little speech Vivian, really I do but,
this doesn’t concern you. I’ve got Mark and daddy
wrapped around my finger and there’s nothing you can
do about it. So
why don’t you step aside and let things take its
course. I know… why don’t you go find yourself a
nice little young stud and leave us alone.” Said Katy
sarcastically glaring at Vivian.

figured out. Well hear me loud and clear, this isn’t
over not by a long shot.
I have my ways of getting what I want. Think
about it… I built RKC before you and Mark came along

if you think you can just waltz in here and take what is
mine you’re sadly mistaken honey.
Just watch me.” Vivian stormed out of the

Her confidence is shaken by Vivian’s last words
‘I built RKC

This is a small detail that she didn’t know. A
small wave of panic slowly passed over her like someone
had just walked over her grave.

He began remembering how young and sweet she was

She was the sweetest virgin he had ever had.

Katy is still upset at Mark for being so intimate
with Vivian in front of her.
She invited him in to talk then turned and looked
Mark? I just
want to know why you did that to me? Were you testing my
feelings to see if they are real?
I thought I was special, someone you could trust
and wanted to be with.
Do you know how that made me feel, do you?
I don’t care some much as to what people were
thinking, shit she’s your wife.
But in front of me?” She began breaking down
into tears again turning away from him. Mark’s head
I know how that must have looked and I’ll be the first
one to admit that if the rolls were reversed I’d be
just as upset. No, I take that back, I would be jealous.

know that I am in no position to make such a statement
but its how I feel.

windows. Sure I look like the king of castle when I’m

Mark reaches out to Katy and pull’s her into
his arms then continued.
at me Katy, I’m don’t want to erase what we found
and what we know is growing between us.
You are on my mind night and day.
If you only knew how many times I have watched
you sleep at night from your bedroom window and how I so
badly want to slip under the covers to be with you all
night and every night thereafter. Remember the words you
said to me before the ball, ‘I’ve wanted you from

have and I’ll be okay with that.”
slowly and gently kissed her.
Katy began to cry as she kissed him back and said
“I’m always yours Mark.
You’re the only man that will touch me after
tonight if you still want me.”
picked her up in his arms and began carrying her up to
her bedroom. “Are you sure you want this Katy, because
there is not turning back once I take you.
You will never be a full human again ever; your
children will be half vampire and half human.
They will need their mothers milk but also need
