Honestly, I’m not sure what story this scene is going in. Either State of Affairs 3 or a new Scott and Mariana book. Either way, it’ll be out relatively soon. Enjoy.
For those wondering where Scott stood in terms of Caleb’s protest…
Mariana scored the account of a lifetime – handling the PR of notorious athlete, Caleb Kelly. He made news by refusing to salute the American flag and it was up to Mariana to make him more personable in his activism.
It wasn’t going to be an easy sell. Caleb was well hated by many in the country and had received numerous death threats. He was also very loved by his community and many other organizations. He’d donated a lot of money and time to such causes as Planned Parenthood, ACLU, and those helping various black communities around the nation.
Now it was time to sweeten his personality with more honey.
Mariana knew he probably wasn’t going to be invited to speak on any mainstream platforms anytime soon. But if she could clean up his image just a little bit, it would’ve made a world of difference.
She did silently question why her boyfriend/boss assigned her such a task. He was what she liked to call a conservative liberal. On most issues, Scott had a firm opinion on issues such as women’s rights, civil rights, and gay marriage. On a few issues, however, it was very clear he was definitely from the South and his attitude reflected it.
In the bedroom, however, it was a completely different story. While it had been a while since they had any BDSM play, Scott was very much the Dominant Mariana loved and honored. Just thinking about how he would spank her for an hour, leaving her ass pink and hot to the touch, made Mariana tightly close her legs.
BDSM fantasies had to wait until later. Mariana’s priority was one Caleb Kelly and she needed to know everything about the controversial athlete before she met him. What made him tick? What was his favorite color? Did he prefer coffee or tea? Who was his favorite actress?
Caleb may not have cared too much about his reputation but Mariana surely did. Making the public love him again was going to take more than a few Hail Marys and prayers to the baby Jesus. If she could turn the tide, it meant bigger opportunities for her at McCormick.
If she failed, she hoped her heart wouldn’t break too hard. She had a feeling Scott might be silently happy about it. He may have kept quiet about his true feelings towards Caleb, but something innate told Mariana Scott was firmly in the ‘Don’t Ruin My Football With Your Bullshit’ camp.
