"You're a mafia boss," she uttered as he pulled her closer. "Yup, boss of the Toffee Boys. Problem?" He said, still tasting her skin.

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most famous novels. The old fisherman Santiago has caught nothing for eighty-four days. Then things change. Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature. Giancarlo Rossini Real ePublisher Ernest Hemingway, Writer Born: 21 July 1899 Birthplace: Oak Park, Illinois Died: 2 July 1961 (suicide) Best Known As: Famously manly author of For Whom the Bell Tolls Hemingway is one of the 20th century's most famous American writers. His books include The Sun Also Rises (1926), A Farewell to Arms (1929), and For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Hemingway's plainspoken no-frills writing style became so famous that it was (and is) frequently parodied. His dashing machismo was almost as famous as his writing: he lived in Paris, Cuba and Key West, fancied bullfighting and big game hunting, and served as a war correspondent in WWII and the Spanish Civil War. He sealed his own notoriety when he killed himself with a shotgun in 1961. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954... Hemingway is sometimes called by his familiar nickname "Papa"... His birthdate is sometimes listed in error as 1898. According to a 1954 article in the New York Times, "In most reference books and in his own conversation he is one year older because he gave 1898 as his birth date when he tried to enlist [in the army] early in 1917, and stuck to that date ever since"... Hemingway's father also committed suicide, shooting himself with a Civil War pistol in 1928.

[MATURE CONTENT] (7 chapters posted every Weekend) "Did you consider my proposal once again?" I pushed away his lips from my ear as I felt myself shiver and flush. I knew that he was going to do this. I turned and took my jacket from the chair and placed it on my shoulders. I then picked up my fedora and placed it on my head. My pixie cut black hair unruly under the fedora as I popped a cough drop in my mouth. If this was going to be a flirting session, I'm not for it. I then turned on my heel to head towards the large mahogany door at the end of the room. As fast as lightning my back rested on the desk as the powerful smell of roses filled my nose. I winced as Nikolas's hands clasped mine over my head. His green eyes glittering as he pinched my cheeks affectionately. "I guess that that's a no. What do I lack my dear?" I filled my mouth with saliva and spit at his face as he chuckled. His smile growing toothy as his fangs protruded. The pasty skin of his growing pink as his cheeks flushed. I squirmed under his intense gaze directed at my bare neck. His fingers leaving a fiery trace as they moved down my neck to my chest. I felt myself shiver as his warm body rested on mine. The air between us heating up as he leaned over and whispered flirtatiously in my ear. "They say that the blood of alpha wolves is of the highest quality. Is this rumor true, my dear?" I flinched as I felt his fangs slide down my neck. A gasp escaped my parted lips as I felt the fangs slightly enter my soft flesh. My eyes felt as if they were going to roll back as the comfortable wave of pleasure washed over me. I began to pant as the emotions began to overwhelm me. The last thing I heard was Nikolas's chuckle before the world around me turned black. ....................................................................................................
