Chapter 6 begins with Mr. Grey taking Ana home in his black Audi SUV. She oohs and ahhs over the music he’s playing, ‘The Flower Duet’ by Delibes, which he switches to Kings of Leon “Sex on Fire.” That’s okay, the song gets interrupted quite a bit by business calls.
At her apartment, it’s obvious Kate has had a hot night with Elliot. Before he and Mr. Grey leave, Elliot plants a big dramatic kiss on Kate and then says ,”Laters, baby.” Mr. Grey just caresses Ana’s lip with his fingers and then also says, “Laters, baby,” to be funny.
After the boys leave, Ana tells Kate about her evening plans with Mr. Grey. Kate has plans too and goes all giddy, clapping her hands and jumping up and down. She gives Ana a makeover before she has to go work a shift at the hardware store! Seriously….why not just make her a Hooters girl?! I picture Ana all glamed up with banging hair and awesome eye shadow in a sweet little sexy dress restocking the hammers!
Mr. Grey picks Ana up at the end of the day and takes her to his personal helicopter which he’ll be flying to his place in Seattle. It’s all very Bond-like. First, how quickly he was able to track her cell phone at the bar the previous night. Now, he pilots the copter, an EC135 Eurocopter by the way!
He lets Ana know he’s been a qualified pilot for four years. Wow…that’s how long she’s worked at the hardware store where she knows “a little bit” about everything, and nothing about DIY. Perhaps Mr. Grey can teach her a thing or two!
They reach his place and she’s immediately overcome by how big it is! His place, that is. What did you think I was talking about?
He brings out some wine and a nondisclosure agreement that he says his lawyer insists upon. She agrees to sign without even reading it, agreeing she cannot disclose ANYTHING about them to anyone. She assures him she wouldn’t even tell Kate. Ha! Yeah, right! Let’s hope Mr. Grey is smarter than that.
She puts her copy in her purse and then asks, “Does this mean you’re going to make love to me tonight, Christian?”
Now get ready for this…
He replies, “No, Anastasia, it doesn’t. First, I don’t make love. I fuck…hard. Second, there’s a lot more paperwork to do. And third, you don’t yet know what you’re in for.”
Oh my! You had me at First, big boy!
But Ana doesn’t have time to respond because he wants to show her his playroom! She thinks he means Xbox, but the chapter ends with her thinking she’s “time-traveled back to the sixteenth century and the Spanish Inquisition. Holy fuck.”
