Kal grinned from ear to ear, as he walked down the darkened streets of Metropolis. He breathed in the smoggy air, and felt the cool air brushing across his skin. Life was great!
As he turned the corner, he saw the throng of people waiting in line to get entrance into the best club in Metropolis. Atlantis. He walked past them all, nodded at Mike, the bouncer, and walked right inside.
He smirked, as he heard the protests from the people behind him, and thought, only if they knew. He loved this feeling. He relished in it.
He loved being able to do whatever he wanted, when he wanted, and there was no one that could stop him. They could try, he thought to himself, but they wouldn’t succeed.
He walked past the dancing crowd, and took his seat at the bar. This seat was always open, it was like it had an imaginary sign reading ‘Reserved for Kal’. “Yo, Toni! I’ll take a double!”
Toni, the bartender, who worked here every night looked up at him, and smiled. “Well, if it isn’t Kal himself. I was wondering where my favorite customer was.” He took his shot.
“So, why are you late? You know, I’ve gotten used to your nightly chats. I was wondering when you would greet us with your presence.” “I was…preoccupied.”
“Yeah I bet. Let me guess, a tall beautiful dame caught your attention?” He nodded. He placed his hands on his chest, feigning hurt. “I thought I meant more to you. I’m hurt, Kal.”
He grinned. “Oh, I’m sorry to hurt your feelings, but when the ladies call, I come.” “Don’t I know it. So, tell me, where is this beautiful woman?” He smirked. “What woman? You know me, I got what I wanted, and now I’m here, ready to have some fun.”
He poured him another shot. He downed it before smirking. “So, what do you have for me tonight?”
He searched the crowds. “Well, let’s see, we have blondes, red heads, brunettes. What would you prefer? There’s a whole menu tonight.” He shrugged his shoulders. He didn’t really care, as long as he filled his nightly quota.
“I think you’re on someone’s menu tonight.” He nodded his head, and Kal turned to see a table across the room. Three beautiful blondes were laughing and giggling as they stole glances at him.
Mhmm, they were quite beautiful, he thought to himself. He turned back around. “What? Not interested? Your failing, my friend. Why not go over there, and work your magic?”
He grinned, pointing to his glass. “Why should I? It’s not like they don’t like what they see, besides the woman come to me, not the other way around.” He took his shot. “But, you can send them a bottle of your most expensive drink.” “Which girl?”
He looked back over at them, eyeing them all. “Just put it on the table, and let’s watch the cat fight start. It doesn’t matter, because I’ll be dancing with every one of them before the night ends.” He did so. “You know, your one cocky son of a bitch?”
“Yeah, that is true, but it works for me, does it not?” He shook his head. “I don’t know how you do it, but you do, and I envy you for that.” He grinned.
He supposed, that the men would envy him. He had the woman here wrapped around his fingers.
“Well, your plan seemed to work. Here’s one now. Good luck.” “Don’t need it.” He grinned, as he waited, and felt her presence behind him before she softly trailed her hand down his arm.
He looked down at her hand then up to her face. “What can I do for you, beautiful?” She showed the bottle, setting it down on the counter. “How about a drink?”
He poured them shots, and they took them. He turned towards her, and swept his eyes up and down her slender body. Grinning at what he saw. She sure was scrumptious.
She wrapped her hands around his arms. “Like what you see?” He looked up at her. “Mhmm. You know it, baby.”
She moved closer to him, her body only inches away from his. God, he loved woman, and they seemed to love him, and he just ate up the attention they gave him.
It was a major edge to his growing ego. “So, sexy, now that you have me. What do you plan on doing?” “I have a few ideas.” “Mind sharing?”
“I think I’ll just show you.” She trailed her hands up his arms, down his chest, and rested them on his abdomen. “God. You sooo muscular. Do you work out, handsome?”
He stopped himself from rolling his eyes. Every night. Every night, he heard that line, and it was getting old. Did they seriously think that worked?
Sure, it boosted a man’s ego, but for him, it just irritated him. He gripped her waist, yanking her closer to him. “Yeah…something like that.” She leaned close to him, practically purring in his ear before gently biting his lobe. “How about a dance?”
“Whatever the lady wants.”
He dragged her to the dancefloor, the upbeat music ringing in his ears, and pulled her close to his body.
He wrapped his arms loosely around her waist, enjoying the feel of her body against his, and grinned when she wrapped her arms around his neck, her head resting on his shoulder. Their bodies moved in sync to the music.
As they danced, she slowly rubbed her backside against him, making him bite back a groan. He gripped her hips, pushing her harder against him, making her moan. He grinned.
He loved it when they did that, god, they were so easy.
He moved her hair to one side, before he kissed, bit, and licked her neck. She moaned again before pushing back against him again. He growled. “You’re being very, very bad.”
She twisted her head to look up at him. “Only for you.” They continued dancing, their hips moving in time to the beat of the music.
As the song was coming to an end, he noticed a tall, beautiful red-haired woman standing at the bar. His eyes took her in. She was beautiful, by herself, and his next victim.
He looked down at the girl in his arms. He danced with her, now he was bored with her. He untangled himself from her. “Thanks for the dance, love.” And walked away, ignoring her protests.
He walked with absolute confidence towards the beautiful woman. The night was still young, and he was only getting started.
A few hours later, he was sitting at the bar downing another shot. He had already danced with several woman, all wanting him to take them home, but before they could have asked he walked away.
He wasn’t looking for one-night stands. Of course, sex with a beautiful woman was intriguing, but he knew they would expect more than he was willing to grant.
Woman were emotional rollercoasters, and no way in hell was he going to get caught in one of their traps.
He took another shot. He didn’t really understand why he kept drinking, it’s not like it affected him. He glanced down at the red ring, and supposed, that the red now running through his veins just made everything so, so much more fun.
“Aw, don’t tell me that your done already?” He mock glared. “What do you take me for, Toni? The night is still young. Trust me. I’m not even close to being done. I have my eyes on plenty more woman, who need to be swept off their feet.”
He stared at him, curiously, causing Kal to glare at the man. “What?” “Nothing. It’s just, well, I’m just curious about something.” “Hmm?”
“Why don’t you ever take the women home with you? I mean, I understand you not wanting them to get attached, but why not have a good lay, and throw em out?” “Does your wife know you talk like that?” “Shut up!”
He tilted his head. “Why though? You know as well as I do, that if you asked, they would come running after you like a dog in heat.” He smirked. “They already do that.” “Your deflecting, Kal.” He was thoughtful for a few seconds. “You know what I think?”
“No, but you’re going to tell me.” He ignored that sarcastic barb. “I think you have or had a girl back home, and you feel guilty about taking them home so, you don’t.”
He laughed, a laugh full of coldness. “There is no girl. There will never be a girl. I don’t have time for romance, my friend. I just want to have fun, and that’s exactly what I plan on doing.” “What’s so wrong about having a beautiful girl to come home to?”
He shrugged his shoulders. “There isn’t, but that’s just not me. Besides, this is rich coming from the guy who has a lady waiting for him at home.” He smirked. “And I’ve seen your girl, and what a girl she is.”
He glared, which caused Kal to throw up his hands in surrender. “I’m just not interested in the whole falling in love with the first beautiful girl that shows me interest. Trust me. I’ve been down that road before.”
His brows rose in query, but didn’t comment on that. “Your incorrigible, you know that?” “Face it, Toni. Your nights would be, oh, so lonely without me around to bug you every night.”
He nodded. “Yeah, you are right about that. Just don’t go disappearing on me now. I look up to our nightly chats.” “Well, I don’t plan on going anywhere.”
