RHAGE: [Little than an hour left before I had to race back up the staircase sandwich in hand before Mary had to leave once more to SafePlace. Damn place was starting to take too much of your time from me. Slapping the sandwich together on the counter with a little less finesse than usual, but it would do. Snagging a bag of chips and a coke on my way out of the kitchen, I hit the staircase double time. Stilling my hand on the railing when something just……] What.. [The surge ran straight down my spine and boiled in my groin.] Daaamn. You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. [Finishing the sandwich in less than the amount of time it took to race the remaining steps to our room, kicking the door open, grinning as the bang sounded and your face shot to mine, and straight down to my cock.] You won’t be able to leave today, Mary. [Fangs elongating as the call to mate and hit me like a tidal wave. I all but flashed in front of you.] There’s a needing….
[The sound of the door banging against the wall causing me to nearly jump out of my skin. Spinning around to face you, my pulse racing and showing no signs of slowing down as I take in your appearance.] What? Why? [The words dying on my tongue. The space between us all but disappearing in the blink of an eye. Swallowing back a groan, I knew you didn’t like me spending so much time at SafePlace. I wasn’t thrilled either, but we both had our jobs. I opened my mouth to argue just as your words began to sink in.] Needing…[My voice turning husky when the memory of the last needing flashed through my mind. Letting my eyes slowly travel your form, taking a small step to eliminate any distance between us.]
RHAGE: [Fire boiled through my veins at your step closer, putting us chest to agonizing chest, The Beast purred loudly at the contact of our female. There was no time to allow you to contact SafePlace, if anything Fritz had already notified them the second he saw all the males running to their rooms and doors slamming. Eyes slowly taking in your work clothes. I knew you’d be pissed but as another surge rammed through my body there was no time for foreplay…. rips the clothing so fast from your body they could have never been there. Pressing step by step towards the bed until your calves made contact. The sinister grin spread wide as I leaned over until you fell backwards, my groin throbbing behind the waistband of my shorts.] Just how I need you, baby. [Parting your legs with my knees as another wave of need washed through my body, it was amazing I wasn’t already rutting between your thighs. Cock pulsing with need, shoving the material of the basketball shorts to the floor. Fuuuck.] No time for foreplay, Mary. None.. [The tip of my cock pressing against your core] at [thrusting forward, deep into your pussy when another wave crashed into me] all!
MARY: [I barely had enough time to process you ripping my clothes from me, let alone the words spilling from your lips. Screaming out your name.] RHAGE!!!! BABY….FUCK! [The last coherent thought leaving my mind the moment you thrust into me. Bracing my knees alongside your hips, rolling my own hips upward to match your pace. This wasn’t our usual love making. This was pure need. The fact that the door was still standing wide open and the entire mansion could hear me screaming your name…I didn’t care. I couldn’t. The only thought that filled my head was more. Over and over. I needed more. Clutching my fingers at the small of your back, my blunt nails raking trails against your skin. I knew the Needing didn’t effect me the same way, but damn…]
RHAGE: [Hips rolled continuously pushing my cock deep on and on inside of you. God it was soo good to have you wrapped all around me as I kept myself buried deep. Our lips fusing as I swallowed your moans eating them with each gulp of air. The crash of hormones racked through me again, forcing me to take you harder, spreading your thighs and thrusting my cock faster, harder, deeper. My voice a purr of sweet seduction against the skin of your tits, licking a hot path over your nipple to the valley between them.] Scream baby, scream my name! [Grinning from ear to ear as your throat bubbles with scream that carried my name. Your pussy took each thrust and begged for more with each spasm and I was delivering with no plans to slow down as the demand to mate kept coming wave after wave.]
MARY: [Screaming I could do. Screaming your name was all I could do. Every thrust hitting deeper inside of me. Digging my fingers harder into your back, my hunger for you equaling yours. The thoughts of my skin bearing your marks briefly flitted through my mind, causing a low groan to escape from my lips. Pushing my hips harder against you, greedily taking everything that you were giving.] RHAGE, BABY! DON’T STOP! [Crushing my lips back against yours, my tongue grazing your fangs. Our moans mingling as our tongues battled for dominance. I knew you had no intention of stopping. You couldn’t. Clenching my muscles around your cock, I wanted to hear you scream, to come undone just as you were making me]
RHAGE: [Pure animalistic need ran through my veins as I pushed and pulled myself. The Beast reared his ugly head in a growl as my back bowed, sending my come deep into your pussy as it convulsed taking everything I had to offer. My lips pressing against yours before my tongue slid deep, searching for your reach. My arms barely holding me above you as my hips slowly rolled in shallow thrusts.] I don’t think I can stop, baby. I can feel it now… [Moaning against your ear as another wave of hormones assaulted taking over my body. My cock was hard as steel instantly. Stretching your legs to hook them over my shoulders, damn I loved you like this, your feet grazing The Beast with each pounding thrust into your core and my body more than surrounding yours.]
MARY: [Tightening my calf muscles, digging my heels into your inked skin. I could feel the Beast writhing beneath my feet. My fingers finding their way to your thighs] No stopping, baby…I need you. [Nearly folding my body in half as I reached up to find your lips, kissing you fiercely as the rush of need washes through you. There was no room for tender touches and slow movements, not during a Needing. Our bodies moving together over and over as wave after wave hormones hit you, never stopping till the need was sated. You and the Beast are the center of my world, and that is a need that will never be satisfied.] #NeedingRicochet
RHAGE: [Pulling my phone from my front pocket. Pressing the power button bringing my iPhone to life, it was just just gone 3:30 am and just past Zahk’s bedtime. Raking a hand over my face before dematerializing home. Dinner, movies, and Shellan time, all in that order of course, sprinkled with a few snacks when I hungered for some. Tugging my shirt by the back collar to fall on the floor at my feet as I kicked off my ShitKickers and leathers. I hated for Mary to see any Lesser blood on any part of my body, seemed all The Brothers felt the same because they’d hit the showers in the training room before returning to their Shellans as well. Willing the shower on before stepping inside the steam filled stall. The Beast coiled on my back the second the hot spray cascaded over him.]
MARY: [Smoothing my hand over Zahk’s unruly blond locks one more time, the steady cadence of his breathing letting me know that sleep had finally overtook him. He was restless tonight, making bedtime a challenge. Three books and a lullaby later, sleep finally claimed him. Gently tugging his blankets up, I slipped out of his room and quietly shut the door. There were still several hours before I found my own bed, and I knew exactly how that time would be spent. Crossing the threshold to our room, silence and darkness were all that greeted me. Flipping on the light, I glanced down at my watch] Where, oh where are you, baby? [Quietly muttering to myself. I knew you would be home soon. Figuring there wasn’t any point in just standing here and staring at my watch, moving across the room to the walk in closet. I had a date to get ready for.]
RHAGE: [Towel slung to the hamper as I pulled on one of the jogging pants left in the stockpile of clean clothes. Grabbing my trench and phone before leaving the training rooms behind. Tunnels were silent as usual as I made my way to the Mansion thinking of the different ways I could spend the rest of the evening… I had a few ideas in mind, and there would be no denying the need I had for my Shellan the entire week. Safe Place stayed too busy for its own good thereby taking too much of my Shellan’s time from home. Grinning from ear to ear as I pushed our door open, the soft glow coming from the walk-in closet was a dead ringer for where I would find you.] Clothes Mary? [The Beast purred at the sight of your bare back and favored slacks, my cock instantly hardened when your piercing grey eyes swung around to face me.] There won’t be any need for clothes from here tonight, baby. [Snagging one of my t’s from the stack right next to me, lifting it by the collar and walking the two steps it took to reach you, pulling the shirt slowly down your head, fingertips following along until I stopped at the waist of your slacks. Cock rigid and pressed to your backside as I unfastened your slacks, letting them fall to the ground at your feet.] This will be more than enough clothing for movie night, Mary. [Kissing a gentle path to your slightly exposed shoulder to the back of your ear.] More than enough.
MARY: [I couldn’t have stopped the soft groan from leaving my lips any more than I could’ve stopped my instinct to bare my neck to you. Dropping my head back against your chest] Anything you say, baby. [Reaching back to drag my fingers along the soft cotton fabric covering your thighs, shifting my hips teasingly against your tented sweats. I lost all sense of time and place the second your lips touched my skin. Turning my head towards you, brushing my lips against your temple] Does this movie night have a preview? [Clutching my fingers in your sweats, tugging you as close to me as possible] Cause we do have ALL night for movie night, Rhage. [My voice sounded husky to my own ears, but I would never hide my desire for you. I couldn’t. My whole body seemed to come alive the moment you walked into the room. I knew of the connections between Hellrens and their Shellans. The feeling only seemed to grow over time, and I prayed that it always stayed that way.]
RHAGE: [My laugh vibrating against the curve of your throat before tugging you back to our room behind me.] There is always previews, baby. [Grinning from ear to ear as I sink into the couch, pulling you close to my side, arm draped over your shoulders.] Why would my sweet Mary be hoping for long previews tonight? [Fingers pulling at the sleeve of your borrowed shirt caressing your soft skin.] Whisper it to my ear, baby. [Presses play on the dvd player tossing the remote on the floor at our feet next to my stock pile of snacks.]
MARY: [Shifting in your embrace up to my knees, pressing the length of my body against your side. The heat from your skin seeping through the thin cotton of your shirt. I wanted to purr the moment your fingers glanced over my skin…and that was just my arm. My grin turning a bit wicked as I leaned closer, allowing my warm breath to wash over your skin] Your sweet Mary has missed you, baby….desperately. [Flicking the tip of my tongue out to tease the shell of your ear] Zahk’s asleep. You’re not on patrol. I’m not at work. We’re all alone…. [Letting my breathy words hang between us as the muted sounds of the movie fill the room.]
RHAGE: [Ahh, my Shellan thought just like me. Grinning from ear to ear as I slouched further into the couch, my feet kicking up to the round footstool. My arm pulling you closer to me as my gaze flashed The Beast’s presence too.] Then why are you sitting so far, baby? [Tongue grazing your soft, supple lips begging for them to open and allow passage. Movie all but forgotten as I turned, knees dug into the couch as I prowled between your thighs, sweatpants barely hanging onto my hips.] This is much better [bonding scent coated the air around us reaching to cover you from head to toe] isn’t it? [Lips pressed to yours parting them with my own tongue develing in the warm soft licks of your own.]
MARY: [A whimper was the only response I could manage, because there was no way in hell I was breaking this kiss. Slowly tangling my tongue with yours as my fingers trailed along your back, tracing every line and detail of your tattooed skin. My fingers ached to touch every inch of your skin, and I wasn’t about to deny myself. Following the lines of The Beast down to the small of your back before gripping your hips with my hands, pulling your body flush against mine. I wanted your weight on me as your spicy, heady bonding scent enveloped us. Pulling my lips from yours only long enough to breathe out your name] Rhage…baby…
RHAGE: [Grinning against her lips as our tongues battled for dominance. MINE! The Beasts inner growl matched the claim my body was taking. My lips pulled from your to follow the line of your jaw, fangs grazing against your collarbone and hands pushed your borrowed shirt up to your hips. Your soft moans tingling my ears as my fingers caressed the soft skin of your hips.] So much for movie night, baby. [laughing against your throat, fangs throbbed to be embedded into your skin even if the substance wasn’t everything I would need I still wanted it.] Will I find you ready for me, baby? [Hips rolled into your parted thighs, a soft groan rumbling from my chest.] Tell me, my sweet Mary, what will I discover.
MARY: [I felt your words against my skin more than heard them. Arching my upper body against your chest, tilting my head back to expose the expanse of my skin to you] Movie…what movie? [I could barely hear my words over my own heartbeat. Somewhere in the back of my mind I knew you asked me something, but the only thing I could think of was closer. I needed you closer, and I needed your skin on mine. My fingertips dragging down your ribs till the bothersome barrier between us fell under my touch. I had a niggling feeling of being watched, but I knew that wasn’t possible. Digging my fingers into your hips to pull you closer, moaning softly] Rhage…. [The little sniffle sent my eyes flying open, shooting straight up off the back of the couch and directly into you. Your fangs nicking my neck] Baby, we’re not alone. [Whispering soft enough that I hope Zack didn’t hear]
RHAGE: [Throbbing need was an understatement as I watched your fingers slowly working my sweats downward. Devious intent more than clear in your eyes as they dragged up the length of my torso, abs begging for the scratch of your nails. The Beast flashed to the forefront when you jerked from my touch, white eyes searched for the one disrupting my evening until they fell on Zahk. Tears collected in his tiny blue eyes on the verge of falling and his tiny chin quivered. Doing my best to cover you with your borrowed shirt and righting my sweats before I walked the short distance to the opened door.] What’s doing Zahk? [crouching in front of him eye to eye, my heart sank in my chest as tiny tears streaked down his face, pulling him into my arms and carrying him to our couch.] Zahk, tell us what’s wrong, son.
MARY: [Tugging my shirt back down in a rapid fashion, moving from the couch to the door as quick as I could. Zahk’s face was enough to bring tears to my own eyes. He was clinging to you for dear life. Feathering my fingers through his sleep tousled locks] Zahk…honey. [My brow creasing in concern. Kneeling down beside you both, placing a soft kiss to the top of his head. His back shaking from his tears] Zahk, talk to us, Little Man. [I tried to soften my voice. I didn’t know what to do to make his tears stop. I hated feeling hopeless. My mind was racing with what could make Zahk react in such a way] Did something scare you? Did you have a bad dream, Little Man? [His little head barely nodding against your shoulder. Looking up at you, keeping my voice soft] Baby, want to take him over to the couch? Zahk, would you like something to drink? [Another small nod was all I got amongst the tears and the sniffles] You hang onto Rhage, Little Man. I’ll be right back. [Giving you a small smile, quickly getting to my feet and running down to the kitchen for some milk]
RHAGE: [A nightmare? Lifting Zahk into my arms, carrying him to our couch facing him towards me as he sat on my lap.] Zahk, you have to tell us what’s wrong so we can fix it, true? [Tiny fists lifted to his eyes swatting away the shed tears.] Dreams are just dreams, son, they can’t hurt you. If they could do you think we would let you sleep alone? [Grinning at his quick shake of his head.] What was your dream about, Zahk? [Giving you a quick glance as you return with his glass of milk.] “The bald man said I never see you again” [his tiny lips trembling as another burst of sniffles takes over. Wrapping an arm around him pulling him to sit in front of us on the round footstool.] Drink your milk, son. Everything will be fine. I do remember Uncle Z telling you to kick whoevers ass scares you, didn’t he?
MARY: [When I heard how small his voice sounded, my heart nearly broke. Handing him his favorite dinosaur cup, scooting forward on the edge of the couch. I couldn’t stop myself from brushing his hair away from his forehead] “He dids say that.” [His little hands curl around his cup, clutching it to his chest.] Take a deep breath, Zahk. It’ll be ok. [His chest puffed out in an overexaggerated breath, exhaling noisily. Grinning as I looked over at him] Now that was a big boy breath. Can you do it one more time for me? [Watching him as he did it again, his lips curling upwards with the beginnings of a smile. Leaning into your side, my eyes never leaving Zahk’s face.]
RHAGE: [Taking the now empty cup from his hands setting it next to my now forgotten popcorn for the movie.] You good? [His blond hair waving down to his eyes as he nods only once.] Where do we go from here, son? You want to bunk with us, or go back to your bed? Read some stories or watch some toons, your call. [His watery eyes turning to you determined he would get his way this night, and he would. We would both do anything necessary to make him smile.] “Can I watch tv?” [Now for me this was a yes, but it was your call. Bedtime wasn’t my area of expertise, that was found when I gave him too much candy an hour before bed and let him watch Nightmare on Elm Street before bed. Yeah, not a good call.] You should give one of your smiles, you might when her over, son.
MARY: [I was surprised he didn’t take advantage and ask you for a tootsie pop too. I knew you wouldn’t deny him anything, and if it meant never hearing those heartbreaking sobs, I wouldn’t either.] I think we can do some tv. Do you want to go back to your bed and watch them? [Seeing the look that crossed his face at the thought of going back to his bed, I was waiting for more tears to fall.] “Can I…can I sleep with you?” Of course you can, Little Man. [Smiling softly as I held my arms open for Zahk, grunting when he launched himself from the footstool into my arms.] Let’s get you settled in, ok? [Pressing a kiss to his temple, glancing over to you and giving you an apologetic smile. The movie would wait till another night. One in the not so distant future, but for now getting Zahk settled and calm was our first priority. Carrying him to our bed, dropping him to the bed so he bounced. That never failed to get a laugh from him. He quickly scampered to his chosen spot in the middle of the bed. Climbing onto my side of the bed, settling back against the headboard. My arm wrapping around his small shoulders. Pulling the blankets over us.] What do you want to watch, baby? “Cartoons, please.” You heard him, baby. [Flashing you a big grin as you climb into bed.]
RHAGE: [Flipping the television to his favorite toon channel.] You know, we could use some popcorn too, true? [Scooping the pail of popcorn into my grasp and settling on my side of the bed. Looks like Rhage and Mary time was off limits tonight, but I wouldn’t complain, even as The Beast grumbled his unease.] We’re going to get some shut eye soon, son. Don’t eat the whole bucket. [Popping a few kernels into my mouth settling against the headboard, holding the bucket between Zahk and I.] “I like dis popcorn.” Yeah? [Grinning wide] Me too. [Maybe an hour had passed, bugs bunny and daffy were still trying to determine which hunting season it was and Zahks eyes were showing exactly how tired he was.] “I’m tired” [His back turning to me as he snuggled closer to you.] “Goodnight, Mahmen. Goodnight Daddy.” [Eyes widened to the size of saucers staring straight to you.]
MARY: [I was sure in that moment that my expression mirrored yours. I curled my arms around Zahk’s small frame, cuddling him close to me.] Goodnight, baby. We love you. [Whispering softly, pressing a kiss to the top of his head. I could feel my eyes well up as I met your gaze again. My heart was near bursting from those simple words. Our family. Zahk’s steady breathing was the only sound between us. Leaning as close to you as I could without disturbing him, my voice barely a whisper] Thank you, baby…for this, for him, for us. I love you so much, Rhage. [Slipping one arm out from around Zahk, hooking it around the nape of your neck. Lowering your lips to mine in a chaste kiss.] #Family
MARY: [Resting my hand over the swell of my stomach, my lips still curled in the seemingly perma-grin that had been on my face for the last 6 months. I had always ached to have children. I think I had picked up my maternal instinct at age 14, while other girls were trying to pick up boys. Taking care of people just came naturally to me, but children were a gift. When it came time to choose a career, working with kids was a no brainer to me. Their light, their joy, their innocence…they were precious. My grin faltered a little at the memory of my doctor telling me that I would never be able to give birth. A devastating side effect from the cancer that ravaged my body. My knees suddenly felt weak. I couldn’t trust my legs to keep me standing. Carefully lowering myself into the chair by the window. Tracing over the rounded mound of my stomach, almost in reassurance. I was pregnant. The doctors were wrong. I exhaled a shaky breath and tried to slow my now rapidly beating heart.
The door to the bedroom suddenly swung open wildly that I nearly jumped out of my skin. A head of blond locks came charging full speed towards me] “MOMMY!!!!!” Oof! Zahk! Easy there, little man. [Awkwardly scooping him up and onto my lap, perching him on one leg. His tiny hand coming to rest on my stomach] “Mommy, whens the baby coming? Daddy saids it’s going to be a boy, just like me!” [His grin couldn’t get any bigger and I couldn’t help grinning in response] Did he? I don’t know if I could handle another boy, little man. You all would have me outnumbered. [Lightly tickling along Zahk’s side, his giggling and squirming body moving against me. Just in that moment, a tiny kick against my abdomen stole my breath away] “Mommy…whats wrong?” Nothing, baby boy. Here…feel. [Taking his tiny hand and placing it where I felt the baby move] Just wait….[Keeping my eyes on Zahk’s until I feel that tiny sensation again] “Dat’s the baby?” [His blue eyes growing impossibly bigger with wonder as he looked up at me before concentrating hard on my belly] “I know it’s a boy. No girl can kick that hard.” [He gave one very authoritative nod] Are you sure, Zahk? I think Nalla can kick just as hard as you do. [His nose scrunching up in disagreement] “I don’t thinks so, but I’m gonna get a ball from my room and see.” Ok, little man. Just be careful. [Helping Zahk down from my lap, he took off out of the room as soon as his feet hit the floor. Turning back to look out the window, thoughts of a little girl filled my head. I knew Rhage wanted a son of his own blood. That was every father’s dream. I just wanted a healthy baby, but I couldn’t help but let my mind wander at what our child would look like. I hoped they got Rhage’s looks, my sensibility, his sense of humor and our fighting spirit] Rhage, baby…you’ll be in so much trouble if this turns out to be a little girl. [A soft laugh escaped my lips. She would have him so far wrapped around her little finger. Suddenly I could picture it all. A tiny girl with locks of spun gold and sharp blue-grey eyes. Her dressing him up, tea parties, Christmases, birthdays…. everything. My head drifted back against the back of the chair, absently drawing a pattern against my stomach] Soon, baby. Very soon and you’ll be here.
[My heavy eyes fell closed. Who ever knew that pregnancy would sap every bit of energy I had out of me? A little nap wouldn’t hurt. Zahk would be running back in here any minute, full of tales of what he and Nalla had been doing, who kicked the ball harder. He would give an entire play by play, and I couldn’t wait. I knew this baby would complete our family. Even though the pregnancy wasn’t planned, it was cherished for the blessing that it was. Zahk would be a perfect older brother. A sharp pain wrapping around my belly steals my breath. Doubling over as I try to keep from panicking, breathing like those lamaze books said to.] Fuck! [Crying out as another sharp pain hits. I knew I should be timing the contractions or something, but I couldn’t. I didn’t think the pain would be that bad. I needed Rhage. Hauling my ass up off the chair to head towards the bed, only making it as far as the bed before another contraction. Something was wrong. It was happening too fast. Looking down as I felt a rush of wetness down my leg] This isn’t happening right now. [Groaning into the empty room, I had to get to Rhage or at least someone’s attention. There was no way in hell I was making it down to the PT suite on my own. The distance from the bed to the door seemed like forever long. As soon as the pain subsided, I didn’t waste another second. Closing the distance to the door as fast as my feet would carry me, screaming out into the hallway] RHAGE!!! [My voice echoing along the wooden hall. Where was he? Where was anyone?] RHAGE! BELLA! ZSADIST! ANYONE! [Screaming out through yet another contraction. This baby was coming. I had the overwhelming urge to push and I knew that wasn’t a good sign, especially being alone.] RHAGE!!! [Bracing my back against the door frame, my feet slowly sliding out from under me. The pain was getting too much to bear. I needed my Hellren. I couldn’t do this alone. This was not how it was supposed to be. Our baby wasn’t due for another few weeks, and should be brought into this world with both parents present. Tears of anger, frustration and pain rolled down my cheeks.] Baby, please! [Whimpering out, I could only hope that someone would hear me and come soon]
[Shooting up out of bed, the room was completely darkened from the light of day outside. My hands immediately clutching my flat stomach as my eyes looked down. No…no. It couldn’t be. Feeling the wetness upon my cheeks as my tears began to fall, I couldn’t breathe through the heaviness on my chest. It felt so real. I felt that baby growing inside me, kicking inside me, the pain… Sinking back on the bed, my heart ached with an overwhelming sadness. It was a dream. It was only a dream. The loss I felt at that realization would have taken me to my knees had I been standing. I rolled over against Rhage’s back, tugging at his massive frame, my voice a rough rasp to my own ears] Baby….baby, please.. [A grunt escaped his lips as his back hit the bed. I wiped away my tears, even as more fell. I didn’t care. Shifting my body and climbing on top of Rhage, his eyes shining brightly up at me. I felt his rough palm gently caress my cheek, just as I could see the worry lining his face in the darkness of our room. Leaning down to ghost my lips across his, my voice barely a whisper] Rhage…I need you. #BEDreaming
Rhage: [I could still taste the rich Chosen blood on my tongue when I felt my Shellan come to the side of the gurney. My bones finally set properly and stitches in needed places that wouldn’t heal quickly enough even with the boost of Chosen blood. Licking my lips slowly drawing any remaining trace that would be present. Closing my eyes as your pulse quickened as your eyes took in my body from head to toe.] Hey, baby. [Forcing my elbow to take my weight so I could lean closer to you.]
Mary: [My heart felt as if it was firmly lodged in my throat the entire time I made my way through the house and down into the PT suite. I’ve always known that my Hellren was a warrior for the Brotherhood, but I would never get used to seeing you bruised and bloodied under the florescent lights] Baby… [I knew I couldn’t hide the worry in my eyes as I cataloged every scratch and cut. Brushing my fingers through your hair as I moved to the head of the gurney, all I could focus on was you. The rest of the room faded away in my need to make sure you were alright]
Rhage: [Delicate fingers slid across my skull, it took all I could to not wince from the pain. I knew how to handle pain and the light touches only soothed me. The Beast purred much as Boo would when someone gave his stomach a pat. With my head nestled between your breasts, it was comfort that I was in need of as much as the Chosen blood that lingered on my taste buds.] Don’t squeeze me yet, true? [My ever present grin faltering at your frown.] I’m fine baby. It’s just a couple of scratches. [Lies. But sometimes less than the truth was a good thing, at least in this case. My Shellan need not to worry, I am a warrior, it was part of my duty to be scratched at times.] It would do me good to see you smile, Mary. [My fingers resting across your jaw as my index finger forced your lips upward.] Come on baby, it’s alright.
Mary: [Trying to keep my touch as feather light as possible, I didn’t want to cause you any more pain than what you are already in. Giving you a slight nod] I’ll let you squeeze me when you’re feeling up to it, baby. [Mustering the best smile I can with the aid of your finger pushing at my lips] What’s a few cuts, scrapes, bruises, stitches… [Closing my eyes and exhaling slowly, my small smile faltering a little when I open my eyes to meet yours] It will be once you’re out of this room and off this bed and back in our chamber. Till then, I’ll worry, Rhage.
Rhage: [Leave it to my female to worry over anything and everything possible. A soft grin matching the same of your own before yours dropped. Taking your hand with mine tugging you closer to me.] That will be at least a couple hours from now, baby. [Tugging you closer to me with your hand until I could lay down and have you with me. The gurney wouldn’t be comfortable but we would have to make do. Leaning my weight onto my side careful to keep my slowly healing leg without pressure.] Lay down baby.
Mary: [Lay down? I tried to keep the incredulous look off my face as I complied with your wishes. Climbing up beside you and situating myself along the small space on the bed. I tightened my hand in your grasp to stifle the urge to fuss over you] Leave it to you to try to make this a double bed, baby. [I had no idea where I could touch you without causing you pain. Brushing my lips against the corner of your mouth, the only small spot along your lips that didn’t have a trace of blood lingering.] I swear to God, Rhage, you’d give me gray hairs, if I could get them. [muttering quietly against your skin, the steady rhythm of your heartbeat giving me some measure of comfort in this situation.]
Rhage: [Grinning slightly, as much as my jaw would allow.] Baby, I got this healing thing under control, true? [As gently as possible my fingers ran through your beautiful hair.] If you did they make that stuff that females use to change their hair color. Baby you could be blue headed but you’d still be My Mary. And the bed will have to do until I can walk enough to carry us to our bed. [Frowning slightly, my eyes zeroed in on your own.] You need to talk to Qhuinn. I had to push him to safety. It’s not good for any of us to be that distracted. He’s too lost in his mind to be in the field. Talk to him before I have to tell Wrath.
Mary: [Furrowing my brows as my gaze locked with yours] Qhuinn….Qhuinn?!? [going slightly wide-eyed as I tried to not to shriek out his name] And that’s why you’re in this bed? Because you saved Qhuinn? [my heart was lodged firmly in my throat at the thought. I had to get a grip on myself. You were the one injured. The last thing you needed was me freaking the fuck right out. Talking one deep breath and then another] I’ll talk to him, baby. We’ll save telling Wrath as a last resort if I can’t help him, ok? [I couldn’t mistake the concern for him shining through your eyes. I felt myself deflate a little as some of the panic receded from just moments before] I’ll do whatever I can. I promise, Rhage.
Rhage: [My Mary. Forever wearing her heart not on her sleeve but in her beautiful gray eyes.] Thanks baby. [The gurney creaked as I turned and pulled you closer. Mild pain crept across my chest from the still healing ribs. But there was compromise for the touch of my Shellan] who is keeping Zahk tonight? I need a few more hours I think. But I’d like you to stay. You have already seen me at my worst. And I have a craving for ice cream. [grinning as wide as my jaw would allow] the mean doctor had a needle a foot long. No kidding baby.
Mary: He’s staying with Bella and Nalla. [My eyes taking in every single movement you make] Stop moving, baby. [Scooting myself closer to you, shaking my head slightly] You know I’m not going to leave your side, baby. I want you off this bed and back in ours as soon as possible. And I’m your Shellan. Even at your worst, I will be by your side. [Nodding once firmly with conviction before a small laugh escaped my lips as your boyish charms take over] Mean doctor, huh? I’ll see what I can do about scoring you some ice cream. After being traumatized by a needle, you deserve a treat. [Grinning up at you]
Rhage: [Pressing my sore lips to yours in what could only be described as the lightest kiss in history]. You know Baby, Bella has a stash. I’ll take some of hers. [Laughs at the shake of your head] She won’t miss it. And it’s going to a good cause. [sleep was coming. It always did when we were injured I was surprised I had held out this long. I would need to thank Layla. Maybe some flowers or a fruit basket. I don’t know. Draping my arm over you since I couldn’t pull and hold you.] sleep baby.
Mary: [I knew your body was taking over to heal the damage that had been done. Curling my hand around the nape of your neck, urging your head down onto my shoulder] Sleep, baby. I’ve got you. [Whispering against your temple as you settle against me, my own eyes drifting shut. I took more comfort with every rise and fall of your chest as sleep overtook you. I knew I wouldn’t sleep. I couldn’t. Not until you were safely returned to our chamber. Absently brushing my lips against your skin over and over again.] Just sleep, baby. #RecoveringBeast
BLAY: -Mary had been more than willing to meet with him this morning, and though he was exhausted from the nights rotation, Blay dragged himself, up the stairs and into the shower. The scalding spray soothed his aching joints, but did nothing to slow his racing mind. He was about to open up and pour his heart out to Rhage’s female, all in an effort to straighten out his fucked up thoughts. He hoped that she could help, JM seemed sure of it, so it was worth a shot. He stepped from the shower already feeling raw, but dressed for his meeting in dark jeans and a button down and headed to the basement, their designated meeting place? A small storage room that held the things they had brought over from his parents’ home after the raids. He was early, just as he had planned, and dusted off a couple of chairs..the ones he and Q had used to play video games all those years ago, and got them set up for their talk.-
MARY: [Looking down at my watch as Zahk tried to show me something else in his ever growing toy collection] “And I want to takes this one for Nalla to play with.” Ok, Little Man. We’ll take it next time. I have to go and it’s time for your nap. [Tucking him in and brushing a kiss to his forehead] Love you, Zahk. [A small smile curling my lips as his little blue eyes finally close. Quietly slipping from his room and shutting the door] Shit! [Running back into my room, launching myself at Rhage. Laughing as his arms instinctively catch me and crush me to him] I have to go meet Blay and I’m late. Zahk’s asleep. I love you! [Crushing my lips to his for a quick kiss before climbing back down his massive frame and running back out of our door. My feet on auto pilot as I quickly descended the stairs. I didn’t even pause to say hi to Fritz, merely giving him a wave when I went through the door to head into the basement to meet Blay]
BLAY: -he had been listening to her rushed footsteps closing in on him from the top of the stairs, the time to back out of this little chat was gone. Mary would probably take one look at him and bolt his ass to the chair and pry words from his mouth, not that it would necessarily be a bad thing.There was no way that she was going to let him go without spilling his guts, which was exactly why he had called her. She was quiet when she entered almost like she was giving him a moment to have his MOMENT. She was a sweet female, Rhage had a great Shellan.- Hey Mary, -his Voice carried bravado that was no where present in his gut, damn he hadnt ever just spilled everything to anyone..well beside JM and he’d known that male for a long damn time. The heel of his boot dug into the cold floor, eyes cast to the black marks they made. A long release of a sucked in breathe, he looked up, pushing down the rising nerves.- Thank you for agreeing to this. I need… -Blay pushed a chair back, offering it to her before her took his own seat, the mountain of memories before them surprisingly easing his heart. Almost everything in his family home had some memory of Qhuinn attached to it, thankfully most all of them had been from before they had transitioned and things had gotten complicated.-
Mary: [Slowing my hurried pace as I reached the small space. A smile instantly forming when I see Blay standing among the odds and ends in the room. My eyes slowly taking in his mannerisms. Every one of Blay’s nervous actions had my heart aching for him. So much pain seemed to reside in his eyes. I tried to keep my body language as relaxed as possible when I took my seat. I didn’t want to add to Blay’s nerves.] Blay…take a deep breath for me. [My grey eyes never leaving his face as he took one measured breath and then another] Something is weighing on you big time. Your whole body is one big knot of nerves and tension, Blay. I know confiding in someone is not easy. I’m not here to judge. Think of me kind of like a sounding board, ok. [a warm smile crossing my lips when he gives me a small nod of his head]
BLAY: -he did as she said and breathed in and out.- Sounding board i can do. -he tried for funny, but it had come out more strained. her eyes smiled and she nodded slowly, his cue to begin.- Well, Mary, Qhuinn and i have basically known one another since birth. Once upon a time our families were close, both from the aristocracy and members of the glymera, our mothers best friends. They started getting together for “play dates” when we were barely a couple of weeks old. He and I agreed that they just liked to drink wine and gossip. -Those days hadn’t lasted nearly long enough before Qhuinn’s father had become Princep of the glymera and they had distanced themselves.-He told Mary of the years he and Qhuinn had known one another, of the secrets they had kept from the world together, of the way they had met JM and the three of them had gotten close. He didn’t know how long he talked before he reached the major turning point in his life, the night he had met Saxton at Sal’s with Q and John.- In him I not only saw a male who was cut from the same fabric as I, but part of me also saw Qhuinns reaction to our spark. Some fuck…err…dark part of me thought that if I actually went out with Saxton that Qhuinn would get jealous enough to finally admit his feelings. -Had he just admitted that out loud? Fuck he did. no retracting it now. But hell if that hadn’t blown up in his face, he had ended up on his knees moments before a date with Sax, giving Qhuinn the blow job of his life only to be pushed away again.- well, as things heated between Saxton and I, my feelings for Q refused to diminish. -Blay raked a hand through his red hair which was getting long enough they curled around his ears. He cut off his words, he wanted to know where Mary’s thoughts were going with all this because Scribe knows he could go on all night on the topic of Q and Saxton. He only hoped that he could manage to follow her suggestions-
Mary: [Poor kid was going to snatch himself bald from his nerves. Hearing the reasons behind his initial attraction to Saxton was a bit concerning. Relationships were hard enough as it is on a good day without having the added pressure of building its foundation around trying to get a reaction from a third party. Choosing each word with extra care] I know you mentioned similar backgrounds with Saxton, but what about feelings. What are your feelings toward him? Your feelings for Qhuinn, despite not being…easy seems to be an understatement…they seem strong. History, memories…that’s not an easy thing to forget.
BLAY: -his laugh was a harsh sound even to his own years. Mary had just pulled the pin from the grenade of his problems..his feelings for the two males in his life.- Jesus Mary, that’s the issue isn’t it? My feelings for my best friend are far more than complicated and strong. -the look of concern couldn’t be hidden with her warm smile, and he knew that his emotions must be apparent. He was closer to his breaking point than he was the morning that John had planted him on his ass in the gym. Blay allowed his eyes to drop to the floor and took a deep shuddered breath, gathering the words to describe his inner turmoil.- Qhuinn..is my Pyrocant, my one critical weakness, the one thing I will never have, but don’t think I will ever be able to live without. So, to say I love the male is a gross understatement. Every fiber of my being yearns for him and he knows it. The day before I asked you to meet me shi..things got intense, Q had been out and came home ready for the one night stand that would shatter both myself and Saxton. -he stopped there, not really wanting to go any deeper into what happened that morning, or the following day. He shifted uncomfortably in his seat as the memory attacked his frontal lobe, he had been so weak that night, crumbled at the mere hint of Q’s sexual interest nearly burning his current relationship to ashes.-
Mary: [Taking a measured breath as I reached my hand out to lightly rest on Blay’s knee for just a moment, baring one’s soul is never an easy thing and I didn’t want him to forget that he’s not alone in this small room or in this situation. I knew from so many past experiences how valuable having one person that just lets you vent and unload without judgement can be] Weaknesses can also be turned to strengths, Blay. Is that what Saxton is? Is he the one that makes that weakness easier to bear? [shifting in my seat to turn more towards him, softening my voice a little as I leaned forward] I’m not going to try to pretend to know how hard this is on you. Rhage kind of took my life by storm and he’s been all I’ve seen since. I’m also not going to patronize you and tell you what you should do, but I will ask you questions that I want you to think about. [not wanting to hide behind a smile, but conveying every ounce of sincerity in my gaze and just praying to every diety I could think of that he could see that]
BLAY: -Mary had to be the most nonjudgmental person that Blay had ever met. He was baring his soul to her in a way that he had not to another being in ages, and knew without a doubt that once his problems had all been aired that she would stand by and help him in any way possible to make up his mind.- Saxton is my perfect mate in a world where Qhuinn never existed. We just fit together like a hand in a glove. Not only is he perfectly comfortable with his sexuality, but he has been instrumental in helping me become comfortable with mine. We enjoy the same types of things, and can talk for hours on most any subject. He has been a gentle lover, and has gone so far as to declare his love for me. -Blay paused, swallowing hard, his emotions were getting to him, but he couldn’t stop talking.- I couldn’t answer him, Mary! He laid his heart on the line to me and there was nothing I could say, he knew my feelings for Qhuinn and still he told me. -yeah he was fucking rambling again, his heart felt so constricted at the moment that he was sure no blood was getting to his brain. He almost hoped for the blessed blackness of unconsciousness rather than having to meet the grey eyes of Rhage’s shellan again.- That makes me an asshole, doesn’t it?
Mary: Hey! Blay, no! [placing my hand firmly on his bicep to try to stop him. All of his features reflected the war and pain that was going on inside of him. Leaving my seat and crouching down in front of him, trying to catch his gaze] Blaylock, you are the furthest thing from an asshole there is. The heart is a complicated organ and you cannot help nor choose who you love. You make choices. You make mistakes. You learn. [a small smile finding my lips when his sad eyes finally met mine] The measure of a man is how you handle yourself in difficult situations. Being comfortable in your own skin…that is a very important and necessary thing. You can’t truly love anyone until you can completely love every facet of yourself, both good and bad. [my eyes never straying from Blay’s face as I kept track of every unsteady breath he took. I didn’t want him to pass out on me, and he was coming damn close] How did hearing that he loves you make you feel? I know you couldn’t respond, but you had to have some type of feeling when you heard those words from Saxton.
BLAY: -His head bobbed immediately like an idiot, but the words were much slower in coming.- I did have feelings, Mary, my first thoughts were how could Qhuinn be such an idiot when his cousin was such a wonderful male. After that the weight of what Saxton was saying sank in..he loves me despite the fact that he knows that I love another, despite the fact that he knows I will never love him in the same way. -Blay was once again looking at anything but the eyes of the female. the weight on his chest at the moment was that of a two ton elephant- But part of me does love him, and I wonder sometimes if that love is enough to carry us. For us to be mated and happy for the rest of our days. Qhuinn is never going to come to his senses and i have come to realize that. Now I need.. Well I need to know how to make those feelings go away -with those words something in him realized that those words were true, and though it hurt like a motherfucker he was going to have to accept that he would never have a life with Qhuinn.-
Mary: [My heart broke for Blay when he finally said the words out loud that I knew he had been searching for and not wanting to admit. I wanted to call Blay a kid, but he was far older and wiser than his age. My voice a soft whisper in the quiet of the small room] Is that love that you have for Saxton enough for you, for you to be happy with him? First love is a powerful emotion, and a hell of a thing to try to get over. And you’ve tried, Blay. Your relationship with Saxton is proof of that. You have been honest with him. He sees the male of worth that I see in front of me and I can understand how he can love you despite what your feelings are for Qhuinn. [one question that I hadn’t asked crossed my mind. My small hand coming to rest on his knee] As a warrior, instinct guides you every night when you are on rotation, right? [that one affirming nod was all the answer that I needed] I often accuse Rhage of leading with his stomach, [a soft laugh crossing my lips unintentionally] but what does your gut say, Blay? Don’t focus on what your head is screaming at you. Don’t focus on what your heart is telling you. Try to calm yourself and just focus on where your instinct is leading you. It’s there, Blay. I promise you. Reason and emotion are very powerful and not to be discounted, but when they are warring, you need to rely on your instinct to guide you.
BLAY: -Wasn’t THAT the question of the year. He reached down and took her small hand in his, did his best to quiet his screaming heart, closed his eyes and answered from his gut.- as much as I don’t want to admit it, my gut says that I should give up on Qhuinn and move forward with the male who wants to spend the rest of his life with me. -his voice cracked and wavered as he spoke, walking away from a future with Q was already threatening to break him. He wouldn’t shed a tear for what might have been, he would only look forward, to his future with Saxton. The thing that had been pulling at him for several months finally blindsided Blay, he had mentioned more than once that Saxton was a male of worth and his perfect mate and it was damn time that he took the necessary steps to make that a reality. Despite his utterly shattered heart he would ask Saxton to be his for however long they had together, his mate.- Thank you for being here for me Mary. -Blay unfolded from the leather gaming chair to his full height and stretched his stiff muscles.- It means so much that you would be here to help me. Now, I have some planning to do… Accompany me back to the house?
Mary: [slowly standing from my crouched position, gently squeezing Blay’s hand with mine] You’re family, Blay, and I will do anything that I can for my family. You’ve had some big revelations today, and have come to a pretty big decision. Get some sleep, let it sink in a little, before you start your plans. [I know my grey eyes shined with the worry I felt for this male. I didn’t know how he was standing with the pain that was so apparent in his eyes. It made my knees want to buckle from beneath me. Keeping us in this room for just another moment, I wanted to make sure I was steady enough on my feet, let alone Blay] Thank you, Blay. Yes, please….oh, and Blay… [catching his gaze as he went to turn to leave the room, a slight lift to his eyebrow was the only change to his visage when he looked at me] Anytime you need to talk, about anything…I’ll be here. [a curt nod was all I needed for an affirmation. No other words were spoken as I followed behind him as he lead us out of the tunnels and back up the stairs to the mansion] #BrothersEternal
Rhage: [Damn if I didn’t have the plan set up tonight! Grinning from ear to ear as I made my way to SafeHouse. Mary was supposed to be up and ready to go from work in, ten minutes ago. I hope damn well she was ready because if not, we are going to be late. No matter how fast I drove we wouldn’t make it in time. Shutting the door quickly, jogging up the stairs.] MARY! [The doggen ran around the corner her jaw moving like a fish.] Not to worry, I’m here to pick up my date. “Ah, ah, yes Sire.” [Leaning against the banister at the bottom of the stairs, ankles crossed with my arms crossed over my chest, waiting.]
Mary: [Moving my fingers rapidly over the keyboard in a desperate attempt to finish up my last file for the day. I loved when new families came to SafeHouse, but tonight wasn’t the night to work late. I had a date! Just that simple thought brought the biggest grin to my face] You’d think Rhage never took me anywhere. [Laughing to myself as I glance up at the clock] Shit! [Hearing Rhage bellow from downstairs and what sounded like a stampede coming right towards my door. I quickly finished the last of my notes and shut down everything, grabbing my purse before I cross the room to open the door. Knowing I still had that silly grin on my face] Hey baby!
Rhage: [Quickly seeping you off your feet into my arms, leaving a kiss against your lips.] You ready baby? [Not waiting for an answer before I shut the door to your office.] Let’s go, I have something planned that you don’t want to miss. [Taking your small hand into my own before leading you down the stairs straight to my waiting GTO.] Buckle up baby, I’m taking you for a ride. [Laughs sliding into the driver seat, slamming the gas pedal to the floor leaving SafeHouse in a hurry.]
Mary: [Grabbing onto the door as I fumble with my seatbelt] Where’s the fire, baby? [Grinning over at you as the night time scenery flies past the windows. I didn’t even want to bother to try and figure out what we were doing. We hadn’t had too many nights alone since Zahk came back to us, not that I would ever trade my time with our son] I think I’m more excited than Zahk is when Fritz makes chicken nuggets for tonight. [Sliding my hand across the space that separates us and bringing it to rest on your thigh]
Rhage: [The Beast purred instantly at Mary’s touch. He pulsed under my skin, wanting to feel her hand against his scales. FUCK! Growling as I push him from the surface, no.] You’ll see, baby. [Tightening my hold on the steering wheel to keep from touching her, I didn’t want to push my luck right now, not when Mary’s scent filled the car, teasing my skin. Biting into my lip to keep from attacking you.] Ready? [Pointing to the theater that was just coming into view.]
Mary: [Following the direction of your finger with my eyes, blinking several times before turning my eyes from the theater to you and back again. Barely making out the lettering on the marquis that advertised what was playing] Baby? What? How? [Practically bouncing in my seat with excitement, turning back towards you and launching myself across the small distance before peppering kisses against your cheek]
Rhage: [Grinning enough that my fangs would have been on full display if it wasn’t for you keeping my face from anyone passing by as we parked. Foreign films… not my favorite, but tonight was about my Leelan.] Wasn’t too hard, baby. But I’ll take full payment from you… [Laughs giving her thigh a tight squeeze.]
Mary: [That simple squeeze to my thigh and the promise in your words was enough for my skin to flush as a wave of arousal washed through me. Leaning closer to your ear to whisper breathily] If we make it back to the mansion…[Nipping on your earlobe with my blunt teeth. I knew I was teasing both you and the Beast, but I couldn’t stop my words if I tried. The fact that you were bringing me to a foreign film marathon sent my heart near bursting]
Rhage: [The Beast reared his head as your teeth made contact. Straining to push him into the background before I reluctantly pulled away.] Baby, we’ll be late if you keep teasing me. [Grins wide before pushing open my own door, quickly moving to your side opening the door for you.] I would hate to pass the snack counter because we stayed here, in the public with your teasing lips. [Curling my fingers into yours pulling you towards the entrance.] Or we could, skip the movie..
Mary: [Pulling you toward the front door] Uh uh, baby. You promised me a date and that’s what I want. Maybe you’ll get to second base before you take me home. [Winking playfully at you as we approach the ticket counter. I couldn’t help but flash the girl behind the window a smug grin when she started to check you out]
Rhage: [Laughs giving the ticket chick a wink as I drop my arm around your shoulders pulling you tighter. Practically dragging you to the snack counter ordering enough popcorn and m&m’s for ten people, along with Coke, and a few boxes of the sour patch kids.] Oh, baby you want something? [Grins wide looking between you and the counter…] Maybe something, sweet. [Licks my lips slowly, already able to taste the sweet candy from your lips.] Sweet.
Mary: You’re not going to share? [I couldn’t have stopped my laugh if I wanted to once I saw the kid’s expression that worked the concession counter. I’m sure it wasn’t every day he saw a blonde giant order enough to feed a small army. Ordering some licorice and a Coke of my own before slipping my arm around your waist and muttering under my breath] Oh, I want something…
Rhage: [Waggles my eyebrows slowly.] Oh? Maybe we should skip the movie, baby. [grins wide before scooping up the mountain of treats. Passing through the cinema until we find our theater. Damn foreign movies. Shaking my hand before pushing the door open with my shitkicker.] Maybe we’ve lucked out and missed the credits? Though that puts a damper on our make-out timeframe. [Pushes my bottom lip out.]
Mary: Maybe you need an extra seat for all your food, baby. [grins as I turn immediately to my left to find us seats in the back row, noticing a few other people in the theater and not wanting your warrior’s frame to block anyone’s view. Plus the back row allowed a little more privacy for that make out session I was determined to take advantage of. Settling in as the opening credits begin, my eyes adjusting to the bright light when the black and white movie begins. I knew I would owe you a bag of tootsies or ten once the sub-titles started and your quiet groan reached my ears. Lifting the arm rest between us and tucking myself into your side, sneaking a handful of your popcorn. I tried to focus on the screen in front of me as the movie played. It felt like we had just sat down, but half the movie had already passed. I wasn’t ready for my night alone with you to be over]
Rhage: [I was between watching the movie, or just staring at you as your face would tighten or loosen when you were happy with what was playing on the screen. Pushing my finger under the arm of your shirt, teasing the soft skin of your shoulder. Slowly moving my hand from its hiding place under your arm to sprawl against your cheek, turning your face towards mine. Grinning from ear to ear as I craned my neck low to reach your teasing lips. My tongue slowly dragging across your bottom lip begging for entrance. I could crawl into your delicate mouth if you let me, especially right now after having watched you for more than an hour without a single touch. The Beast purred as your lips parted under mine, he wanted more, and damn it so did I.]
Mary: [Finally! That was the only thought in my head as your lips closed the distance to mine. Parting my lips without hesitation as my tongue moved in search of yours. It was a dance our mouths had done countless times, but each touch of your lips left me even more breathless than the time before. Bringing my small hand up your chest to fist in your shirt, tugging you even closer to me. Salt, butter and chocolate bursting across my tastebuds with every pass of your tongue against mine. Pulling back and licking my lips as I grin] That is sweet.
Rhage: [A low growl vibrated against my lips as I pulled you back into me. My hands did their own movement around your body. I needed to feel your body under me, or on top of me, NOW. The Beast growled his agreement as his scales brushed the underside of my skin wanting to get closer to your touch. Yessss. Tugging you onto my lap, my hands snaking up your thighs, the scent of your arousal wafting around us both.] Do we have to finish the movie, baby?
Mary: [My hands immediately tangling in your hair in an attempt to keep our lips connected. Who was I kidding? Your rigid, leather covered cock riding along my thigh was playing havoc with my thought process. My body practically started weeping when you asked to leave] Let’s go, baby. NOW! [Trying to discreetly crawl off your lap and into my own seat without drawing any more attention to us than I’m sure we already have. I couldn’t make myself worry about my embarrassment. My mind only focused on being alone with you. Taking your hand in mine as I try to sneak us out of the theater]
Rhage: [The Beast growled low as I follow behind you. I could feel his scales reaching for the surface. He wanted a piece of you and he wanted you now. I knew my eyes were glowing white as I stared down the back of your slacks right to the curve of your ass. His purr vibrated in my skull. Clenching my mouth closed to keep him from escaping. Fuck. Tightening my hold on your hand as we pushed out the back exit. I couldn’t wait, could I? Fuck, The Beast was pushing shit too much we needed to…] Mary…. [My grin sliding across my face slowly as I pulled you into the hold of my arms, my hands slowly wandering down your sides straight to your ass.] We need you. [Giving your ass a tight squeeze, forcing your legs to come around my hips to carry you the rest of the way to the GTO this way. Dropping you onto the hood of the car lightly and forcing your thighs to cradle me between them, kissing hard enough to bruise if I wasn’t careful of how hard I pushed you.]
Mary: [My hands immediately slipping inside your coat to pull your shirt out of your leathers. Sliding them underneath that thin layer of cotton to your tattooed skin, slowly tracing each line of the writhing Beast on your back. I gladly took each bruising kiss and answered hungrily in kind. Silently cursing myself for not wearing a skirt tonight instead of my standard slacks. I wanted you…God how I wanted you and I wanted you now. Bringing my knees up against your hips, twisting and grinding my covered core against your hard cock] Rhage…baby, I need you. [Only parting from your lips long enough to breathily whisper against them before claiming them in another desperate kiss]
Rhage: [Your soft fingers teased The Beast and myself. I couldn’t handle the separation caused by the slacks or my leathers. Tearing through the fabric as I leaned you back against the hood, my hands holding yours in a fist above your head. My cock instantly found its home in your pussy.] Yessss. [The Beasts’ tongue forcing my voice to take on a hiss, but I could keep the rest of him at bay, for now. Grinding my hips into yours to drive deeper into you. MINE! OURS! My fangs lengthened as I tugged the skin covering your neck. I, we, wanted to devour you, all of you. The Beasts’ purr met your cries for more as I drove deep and hard to please your quivering core.]
Mary: [Turning my head to bare the column of my neck to you, a shiver running through my body as your fangs drag over my skin. Every growl, grunt and purr that left your lips only spurred my need for you even higher. I wanted to touch you, to yank your hair and bring your lips back to mine. Straining against your hold, my body arching up into the solid wall of your chest] Baby…[Pressing my knees hard into your hips as you start to move at an even more determined pace]
Rhage: [Purring loud enough to send a shiver down the spine of anyone within a close enough distance. MINE! The Beast growled for me to claim you as ours. Always. Grinning slowly as I barely pierce your skin, just enough for a small bead of blood to form on your skin. Yes! Slowly licking the blood from your neck before I tugged your hair, exposing your neck and pushing your chest into mine. I couldn’t stop the assault I was driving into your core. I needed this, The Beast needed it. We both wanted it, and wouldn’t stop until we both had the cries of your orgasm ringing in our ears.]
Mary: [My neck arching under your command. Hell, my whole body was at your command. Taking my newly freed hand and burying it in your blonde locks and holding you to me. Breathless whimpers escaping from my lips as you drive me closer and closer to the edge. Feeling the muscles in my thighs start to quiver. I twisted and writhed beneath you, searching for that one angle that would send my release crashing through me. Turning my head as much as your grip allowed, giving you a growl of my own] Harder, baby..
Rhage: [I heard your screams as your pussy tightened on me, holding me in place as I spilled everything The Beast and I had to offer. Laughing against your throat as I release your hair, holding you in place with my thighs and hands.] You shouldn’t be showing your goods to the world, baby. They are for my eyes only, true? [Reluctantly pulling from your core but staying between your thighs, I didn’t want to leave the comfort of your body wrapped around mine, not yet.]
Mary: [Laughing softly and brushing my lips against your jaw] Next time we have a date night, I’m wearing a skirt. Either that, or you’ll be buying me a new wardrobe. [Bringing my legs down to rest on the hood of the GTO, my heartbeat slowly returning to normal. Despite my “goods” blowing in the breeze, I couldn’t stop the grin that curled my lips as I looked up at you] All yours, baby.
Rhage: [Pulling you up from the hood of the car, carefully putting you in the passenger seat of the GTO.] I am taking you home, where I can have what I want, all I want and all I can get. Grinning wide as I slide into the driver seat. Movie time was over, but the night was still young…] #BeastlyDateNight
Ehlena: [With all the confidence of the professional ‘working girl’ I was, I flashed a smile at the blonde warrior, who was just stuffing himself back into his leathers, and turned to mirror to right my clothes and check my hair. The tiny leather skirt and top hugged my curves to perfection as I tugged them back into place, smoothing over them with my hands. Slowly I leaned into the mirror, arranging my hair so that it hid the fresh, but already healing, bite marks on my neck and touching up my bright red lipstick. This male was one of my regulars, one that paid extremely well for a round of sex and pure, glymera blood. He had never once questioned what events landed me as one of Rehvenge’s girls, working in ZeroSum, a club that, until the male I had been promised too ruined my name and I had been cast out of the glymera, I would never have been caught dead in. I appreciated his discretion, and was always sure to make myself available when he came into the club.
Rhage: [The Beast was on edge, but when wasn’t he. Many nights spent where I stayed on the back seat when it came to control that it was hard to remember what happened, or when. Food, that’s all The Beast wanted. And tonight it was the regular, the taste of pure glymera blood in a hot little container, her name I wasn’t sure, but her blood would calm The Beast for at least a few hours. Though usually he didn’t give a shit if it was blood or sex, though he preferred both, it only mattered if he had what he wanted. And tonight he had a taste of both in the compact package wearing a tiny leather skirt and barely there top. Flashing her a grin before not so discretely pushing a wad of Benjamin’s down the front of her top.] I’ll come find you soon.
Mary: [Putting on the finishing touches to my makeup before moving through my house and grabbing my purse and keys. I was looking forward to tonight for weeks. My best friend was getting married and a night out on the town was in order. Everything had been going perfectly lately. My kids brought me so much joy on a daily basis. I never understood those people who were unhappy with their jobs. Smoothing my hand over my short black dress and giving myself one last glance in the mirror before walking out to climb in my car. ZeroSum was always the place to be on a Saturday night. Driving to downtown Caldwell, I was ready to let loose and unwind while celebrating this milestone in my friend’s life]
Rhage: [Liquor, that was my answer for tonight’s craving, sex and glymera blood weren’t nearly enough for some fucked up reason. Least that’s what the fuck I was hoping his ass wanted right now, because it’s what I want. A drunken coma where nothing that mattered would fuck with my head. Flashing a menacing grin at the chicks that lined the dance floor of the towns best watering hole as I walked in the door. All eyes were on me. As it should be. Laughing as I planted my ass in a chair, the waitress was quick, as usual, to walk her little ass to my table.] The usual.
Mary: [Pushing through the door of the club and immediately assaulted by the beat of the music thumping through the club. Moving through the crowds and over to the table where my friends were flagging me down from. It seemed the entire city was inside these four walls. Taking a seat and yelling to the waitress what I wanted, I finally had a chance to take a look around. Bodies grinding on the dance floor to the beat as others mingled at the bar. I was going to have a good time if it killed me. I hadn’t been out in a few weeks and it had been that long since I’d had sex. I was hoping to change that tonight. Turning a keen eye to scope out the male population of the club, looking to see who might catch my eye]
Rhage: [The Beast growled from within, he smelled the air that was filled with sex, sweat and drugs, and he was ready to sink his talons in deep. Downing the drink I ordered in one fluid movement before I stood, prowling my way onto the dance floor. Pulling one of the females who decided I was her humping post, off of me. Flashing a grin filled with promises of sex down at her as she gasped at my quick movement.] Don’t play with fire, female. You’ll get burned.
Mary: [I only put up a small amount of resistance as my friends started to urge me to the dance floor. Finishing off my drink as I’m dragged away from the table, laughter bubbling out of me as I start to move to the music. My hips instinctively finding the beat as I close my eyes and allow myself to let go]
Rhage: [Turning from the gaping mouthed female, only to stop in my tracks as hips that swayed came into contact with my dick. Leaning to the ear that belonged to that same female.] Don’t stop, I like what you’re doing to me. [The Beast purred his agreement. My hands found her hips that stopped moving, urging them to move once more.] I told you not to stop. [Slowly dragging my nose down her exposed neck as I took in her scent, The Beast growled as blood slowly made it’s way south.]
Mary: [Startled that I had bumped into someone and even more so when I heard the voice that belonged to the body behind me. It sounded like pure sex and sin, and did things that made me want to purr. Moving my hips that were now in his grip and adding an extra sway] I aim to please. [Tilting my head as his nose and breath caressed the column of my neck]
Rhage: [My sinister laugh brushed down the exposed throat she left for me. The Beast’s scales urged to be let free from beneath my skin. My hands slid up the insides of her sides as I danced her towards the bathrooms.] You do? [The scent of her arousal caused The Beast to rattle his cage, he wanted out and inside of her now, my body agreed and I wanted to sink myself into every part of her body possible.] Care to show me how much? [Nodding towards the bathrooms as she turned to face me.]
Mary: [I was stunned as I looked up…..and up…and up…my God, how tall was this guy? He was breathtaking. Neon, teal blue eyes looked down at me from a face that looked like it was carved by the gods. Swallowing hard as I try to find my train of thought, noticing him motioning to the back. A playful smile twisted my lips] I can’t wait to show you. The question is….can you handle it? [Walking to the back of the club with an extra boost of confidence that I put into my hips with every step. If I was only going to get one night with this gorgeous man, I was damn well going to make it memorable]
Rhage: [Raising a brow at her taunt, this one wanted to play with fire. And a dance with the devil, she would get.] Im sure I can “handle it” female. [Pushing the door open to one of the private baths for her.] After you. [Flashing a grin full of sexual promise.]
Ehlena: [We walked in silence, his hand at the small of my back, from the private bathroom back to the VIP section. His piercing teal eyes flashed white as he leaned in to..deposit his payment.] As always, Warrior I will look forward to the next time. [i watched as he made his way through the throngs of writhing bodies to saddle up to the bar and turned my attention back to the VIP section, adjusted my skirt and low cut silver top, and set to work. The lights were low and sickeningly thick cigarette smoke hung heavy in the air while thumping music from the main dance floor pounded through the small space, it’s volume only slightly lower despite the distance from the speakers. Hands running through my short, dyed blonde hair I sauntered across the VIP section, eyes scanning the booths for a male who gave a second look. There he was, a vampire male (thank fuck, because I preferred vamps to humans any day) with close cropped dark hair, calling me forward with the crook of his finger. Nonchalantly I looked around and caught Trez’s eye, as one of my closest friends and the boss’s right hand man I knew that I was safe from any threat as long as he was around, and at his nod stepped up to the table. Placing my hands flat on the cool surface, I leaned in closer to the male, my voluptuous cleavage on full display, and listened to his request. “How much for a little fun, baby?” he attempted to whisper but failed miserably, his breath carrying the pungent aroma of the cheap whiskey he had obviously partaken of. I recoiled slightly, quickly concealing the look of disgust under a smile and doubled my price. If the male was anywhere near as wasted as he smelled he would pay. He nodded and started to pull out his wallet, but with a hand laid hard to his chest I stopped him, taking his arm and tugging him from the booth, whispering] Not here. Come on. [there was nothing soft in my tone and I added a silent curse, fucking idiot. Stupidity got girls like me arrested, killed, or both and that was not an end I wanted any part of. When we reached the bathrooms I quickly pulled him inside and took his money, flipping the lock with a smirk.
My voice low and sultry I asked,] How do you want it, baby? [bit my lip, and raised a teasing eyebrow. I couldn’t tell what, but something about the move set him off. His face twisted into a mask of pure rage and before I could think he was on me, violent hands tearing at my clothing, jerking at my hair. The Boss took extremely good care of his girls, and after a rash of violent johns had come through had installed panic buttons in each of the bathrooms. I scrambled now for the button, my skirt ripping apart at the seams as he fought to jerk me back against his body. The leather came completely off in his hand when I lurched hard once more fingers barely brushing the hidden button that would alert security. With a surprising burst of strength he surged forward, his thick, strong hands wrapping tightly around my throat, white stars began to swim before my eyes as my body became starved for oxygen. Wide eyes rolling back in my head, consciousness seeping away slowly as my manicured nails continued to claw at his hands and wrists, begging him to release me.
I wasn’t aware when Trez entered the room and grabbed the male by the wrists, but the John noticed, it was the sound of snapping bones and the scent of fresh blood that brought me back to myself. The strong hands suddenly going limp and falling from my throat and a pair of safe arms scooping me from the floor. I was carried, only half clothed, through the club by a member of the security team, Xhex judging by the build, until we breached a door and she laid me gingerly to a leather sofa. The soft click of the door indicating that she had left me, and I opened my eyes to find the most breathtakingly handsome male I had ever seen kneeling beside me, his face riddled with concern. “Ehlena, are you alright?” my boss, Rehvenge, whispered his hand smoothing down my arm. Before I answered, I pushed myself upright on the sofa, dragged in a deep breath and met his glowing amethyst eyes.] I.. I’m okay [my quaking hand slid over the bruises I could feel forming around my throat. His eyes narrowed and for a second I could have sworn they flashed to a flaming red, his voice came out low and rumbled when he spoke finally. “That motherfucker will never lay a hand on a female again, Ehlena, this I promise you.”
Rehvenge was a male who carried with him a sense of evil menace, and tonight that evil was almost palpable in the room. Tears sprang to my eyes and though I did my best to suck them back they started a slow roll down my cheeks, dripping from my chin as I nodded in acknowledgement. “Fuck, female, don’t cry.” I heard him mutter as his entire body softened and his arms went around my shoulders, bringing my face to the shoulder of his Tom Ford suit jacket. Eventually, my sobs slowed the strong masculine scent of him permeating my senses, something in my head clicking, driving me over the edge. I had learned a long time ago never to let a male close, I always seemed to get hurt. Subconscious taking over I pressed my lips hard to his, fingers dragging over his close cropped Mohawk as I urged him up and onto the sofa. I could sense the uncertainty in his movements, but to his credit he went with me, his hands pulling me astride his muscular hips, then clutching to my bare ass as I shoved the expensive jacket off his shoulders and tossed it to the floor. His eyes flashed again, lust apparent in their purple depths, as I looked down into that beautifully masculine face, fingers nimbly removing his tie and unbuttoning the silk dress shirt. “Fuuuuck, Ehlena. Free me up, Female.” he all but growled, his erection lengthening against my core, expensive pants and my top all that separated us. My hands went to work on his belt and pants while he got busy removing my halter top, handfuls of Benjamins spilling out between us.
His moan of satisfaction, coupled with a quick lift of his hips left us both naked amongst the scattered bills, the male was driven by green, and wasn’t afraid to show it as he picked one up and used the end to tease my nipples.] Fuck [i panted, no male affected me the way Rehvenge did, I lifted my hips to slide down his hard cock, his enormous size stretching my muscles in an exquisite pain and pleasure mixture. I could feel his presence inside me, mind as well as body, he was buried to the hilt, the soft suggestions in my mind prodding me in the direction he wanted to go. Without more warning than that he lifted us both from the leather of the sofa, maneuvering so that my face was buried in the cash on the cushions, and drilled into me from behind, a hand fisted tight into my spiky, the other wrapped around my hips to tease fingertips to the tight bud of my clit. Sometime later Rehvenge left me sweaty and sated on the leather in his office, the stray bills had been gathered into a neat pile, that had no doubt doubled in size since I was brought into the room. Moments later Gina, another of the girls, came in with the street clothes I had changed out of at the beginning of the night.] thank you [i muttered, looking around for a shower] is there anywhere I can clean up some? [the female gave me a slight smile and said, “Boss gave you the rest of tonight off. I’d go home to shower if I was you.” with that and a fluff of her strawberry blonde hair she disappeared back out into the club. Slowly I pulled on my clothes relishing in the pleasant soreness I knew I would feel for the next couple of days] #AlternateUniverse
Rhage: [The Beast growled as I prowled us both down the back ally of ZeroSum. He wanted out, I wanted him to stay where the fuck he was. His scales dragged along the underside of my skin in his attempt to be free.] No! [The Beast’s growl deepened, but for now he was staying put, hopefully. Pushing him into the darker part of my mind, if only that shit worked like I wanted it to. A crash sounded only a few yards ahead snapping my attention from The Beast. The shouts ricocheted off the brick walls as my shitkickers pounded the ground to find out what the fuck was going down.]
Mary: [It had been three days since my little rendezvous with the blonde giant from the club, and I couldn’t get him out of my head. His scent, his touch, the way he felt…..focus Mary. Moving through the club entrance and weaving my way through the crowd. I just wanted one more look at him, yeah…that was it. Just one more look, and if that look led us back to the private bathrooms again, far be it for me to turn him down. Standing up on my tip toes and scanning the crowd] How hard is it to find a 7’ tall Greek god? [Tucking a strand of hair behind my ears and smoothing out my skirt, I make my way back to VIP with an extra sway in my hips. I had a feeling that tonight just might be my night]
Rhage: [The druggies were attempting to break into the building across from ZeroSum. Dumb fuckers, didn’t they know Rehv kept security cameras out here? The Beast snickered in his cage before a growl rumbled low, my shitkickers stopped when the smell of baby powder came from behind me.] Mother fucker. [Spinning on the ball of my heels turning to the scent that made even The Beast’s blood boil. Four of those baby powdered fuckers stood there acting bad as hell.] Really assholes? Tonight isn’t the fucking night for games, feel me? [The Beast’s fucked up laugh echoed down the alley.]
Mary: [Winding my way through VIP toward the back, not spying him at any of the tables or the bar. Looking toward the private bathrooms, hoping to catch a peek down the hallway before calling this attempt a complete bust. Trailing my fingers along the back door as I turn down the hallway and stopping dead in my tracks….was that his voice? Pressing my ear to the door, hoping to be able to hear over the din of the music. I would recognize that raspy growl anywhere. Pushing the door open and slipping outside before anyone could stop me. My eyes taking in the scene in the alley as my hand instinctively goes to my neck. A rough whisper barely escaping my parted lips] Holy shit!
Rhage: [The Beast purred low and deep from within, his purr leaving my lips as I turned to that whispered curse. He couldn’t fucking take it, me neither. She stood there, barely there shirt, and skirt short enough I could see the color of her panties. The sound of the gun cocking turned me back to the Lessers that stood at the opening of the alley. The Beast’s direction sent my eyes to the gun that was pointed straight to my head. The Lessers’ finger slowly squeezed the trigger the same instant The Beast took full form. His massive head lifted to the sky taking in the scent of that female we had only a few nights before his growl was deep and full of need turning into a roar as the bullet squeezed home into his stomach. Nostrils flaring as he moved as fast as lightening to the Lessers to devour his meal.]
Mary: [Blinking quickly and shaking my head as my fingers gripped the column of my neck tighter. I had to be hallucinating. Maybe I was drugged. I was not looking at some dragon…beast….thing where the man who could make me wet from just one look once stood. I had no idea what in the hell was going on around me. I could not take my eyes off of him, it, him. The white light radiating from his pupils and the fluid way he moved had me mesmerized. Were those scales? I should be running for my life. I should…hearing the crunch of bone and half-garbled screams finally penetrated the haze I was in. Turning my gaze toward the sound and seeing nothing but thick, black residue now oozing from his mouth down his chest] No, no, no….this isn’t happening. [Backing up slowly as I reach behind me to try and fumble with the door]
Rhage: [Within seconds he devoured every Lesser that stood threat, not giving a shit that he now had three bullet wounds that were slowly closing. His long tongue slipped over razor sharp teeth licking up every drop of remaining blood. The jerking sound that came from that delicious scent forced his head to turn back to the female. He purred deep as he stalked closer to her, scent full of arousal and..fear? Her hand covered that soft column of skin covering her vein from my fangs. His talons reached out to touch her as he stepped closer. I pushed against The Beast, but he was too strong willed, his growl pushing me into the background as my mind screamed that she was for me. MINE.] #AlternateUniverse
[Spring had finally come to thaw the depressing bleakness that is Caldwell in the winter. The sweet smell of flowers hung in the air as I got into my Civic to make my way downtown. My Friday ritual for the last few months and I wasn’t going to miss tonight. The Suicide Hotline was not anyone’s idea of a good time for the beginning to the weekend, but it gave me a sense of purpose again. Ever since leaving my kids and being declared “in remission”, I needed something to fill that void to help, to make a difference in some small way. Rolling my eyes at myself and snorting out a laugh] Mary, patron Saint of the uncommunicative. [Pulling my car into the open lot and locking it up tight. I couldn’t help but notice, that even in the waning daylight, the dilapidated buildings in the neighborhood were still nothing more than empty shells of what they had been intended for. Shaking myself out of those thoughts and entering the code to get into the building, I made the short trip upstairs to the offices and over to an open cubicle. I gathered what I needed for my shift that night and took a deep breath. My phone ringing set me into action] Suicide Prevention Hotline. This is Mary. How may I help you? [Nothing but an eerie silence greeted me. The caller! The same one who had been calling me every night I volunteered for the last 3 months]
Hello? How may I help you? Is anyone there? [The dial tone was not a surprise. Putting the receiver down and glancing around the room. Rhonda walking towards me also was no surprise. She had been after me to call the cops to investigate my mysterious caller. I had been able to stall, but I knew that was no longer an option] “Was that your caller, Mary?” [Giving her a small nod as I untwist the cap from my bottle of water and take a sip] I think so, yeah. Same time, same silence. “It’s time to call the cops. I know you want to help, but it’s been 3 months of this, Mary. Enough is enough. I’m making the call now.” I know, Rhonda, but I don’t feel like it’s malicious in anyway. This caller doesn’t scare me. “This caller is raising all my red flags, Mary. We need to find out where the calls are coming from at least.” Ok, but for the record, I don’t think this is needed. [Her smile was placating at best. Turning back to my phone and taking another call, I didn’t mind my mystery caller in the least. That phone call had become something that I could count on every shift. I didn’t have to talk anyone down or listen to whatever problem had spurred the person to making this call, just silence. The rest of my shift passed without any other excitement.
Two weeks passed before the cops got back to Rhonda. My mystery caller favored a pay phone a few blocks from the Hotline’s office. Not even the fact that this person had been watching me come and go from the office freaked me out. They were calling me for a reason, and I would be here for them. God knows, I haven’t had a lot of faith the last few years. Maybe, just maybe, this was happening for a reason] #RememberWhen
Rhage: [It had been weeks, maybe even more than a month, I wasn’t sure any more. I went from worried Zahk would be taken from us, to him being gone and returned to us. None of that time was spent feeding. How I forgotten I do not know, possibly I didn’t, I just didn’t want to. Shrugs the thought off as I sat waiting for Mary’s shower to finish, we were to meet Selena within the next few minutes and my starved body couldn’t help but want to run to meet her for her blood. Selfish, but a starved warrior wasn’t the role I wanted to take, I’d been down that road not long ago, and tearing Layla’s throat out wasn’t something I wanted to happen again.]
Selena: [#Fritz had just left me in the room that had been used before for feedings with Warrior Rhage and his Mistress Mary. My bare feet padded across the room to stand in front of the window looking out over the garden. As I waited for them to appear, my mind thought back to when this Warrior had fed last. Verily, I could not recall but hoped that he had not waited too long. Memories of Layla’s last experience came flooding to my mind. He had waited much too long to state his blood needs and things got rather intense. Saying a small prayer to the Scribe Virgin, I took a deep breath and hoped for the best.]
Mary: [Pushing the shower door open and reaching for my towel, I was trying to hurry to finish getting ready. This was just another example of how selfish I had been recently. You hadn’t fed in….I didn’t remember the last time you had fed off hand. My worries and concerns had all been about myself after Zahk had left. Quickly drying myself off and walking into our closet to pull on some clothes. I didn’t want you to have to wait any longer than you already had] All set, baby. Are you ready to go?
Rhage: [Grins as I stand up taking in the slightly see-through shirt you chose to wear, who would I be to protest such a shirt. Walking slowly to where you waited for me until I could wrap my arms tightly around your body. It had been only a few days since we finally started communicating without something being thrown. Kisses your still wet hair as I drop my hand to lace my fingers with yours.] Lets rock-n-roll baby. [Laughs as your eyes widen] Not that sort, baby. [Quickly making our way down the long halls to where Selena would be waiting for us, reaching to knock softly before daring to push my way in, last thing I needed was a frightened chosen.]
Selena: [At the sound of the knock, I immediately turned towards the door and called out] All is well, please enter. [As you open the door, I step forward a few steps and smile bowing my head softly]
Mary: [Giving your hand a reassuring squeeze before turning to smile at Selena and walking into the room] Thank you so much for doing this, Selena. I hope you have been well. [Leaning into the side of your body, wanting to be close to you. Feeding was always an intimate experience and we had been so estranged lately, I was just happy that you wanted me here with you]
Rhage: [Frowning as I look between our options, bed, or tiny sofa. Pulling your hand along with me as I walk towards the bed.] I, thanks Selena. As always you’re the best. [Unable to stop the cocky grin that quickly spread across my face.] It’s been a while since my last feeding, so excuse my lack of formalities.
Selena: [nodding to them both I could not help but wish that I could soothe her somehow during this time. Feeding is innate amongst our kind and has always been considered an intimate process as well. However this Warrior was different. His love for his Shellan was proven again and again as she was always present] It is always my pleasure. I am here to serve the needs of the Brotherhood. [I waited for them both to get settled on the bed as I rolled my sleeve up. He would always feed from mine wrist as it provided the least amount of bodily contact.]
Mary: [Moving beside you, standing next to the bed unsure of where you wanted me while you fed. This time was about you and your need. Stroking my hand across your tattooed back, I would be here in whatever capacity you wanted me to be. I had a lot of things to make up for and this was just one small step]
Rhage: [The Beast purring as your hand slowly stroked over his place on my back.] Sit, baby. [Tugging you down on the bed next to me. Gently taking Selena’s wrist in my hand. I didn’t want to wait, or play formalities, I was fucking starved from the blood I needed, but I wouldn’t be aggressive. Fangs punching through to gleam in the low light that lit the room.] Thank you, Selena. [Fangs pushing through her delicate skin that coated her wrist, her blood filled my mouth instantly draining down my throat to quench the thirst. Twisting my body towards Mary, Selena’s wrist stuck with my fangs dragging her towards the embrace I held on Mary. I needed to smell my female while I drank what was needed. Pulls of blood from her wrist doing all I could in my power to not harm her, not like I did to Layla.]
Selena: [Taken aback at his eagerness to feed, his elongated fangs pierced my skin swiftly. I quickly slid onto the bed beside him, my body practically leaning across them both. He had indeed not fed for quite some time, the pulls on my vein were deep and constant yet not painful. The visual strain in his neck told me that he was using control to not hurt me.] Sire, worry not. You are not hurting me. Tis been a long time….take what you need. [I rested my hand behind him as I leaned over to allow him to be as close to his Shellan as possible.]
Mary: [My arms immediately winding around you and holding you close to me. Every time you fed, we went through this routine, but this felt more intense to me than the others. Burying my face against your neck and inhaling your familiar scent, my former guilt at not being able to provide the sustenance you need was not present tonight. Keeping my eyes closed against your skin, I was grateful to Selena and to her blood. I had you in my arms and I would never -ever- take that for granted again]
Rhage: [My fangs pulsed with each pull of chosen blood I took. Growling as Selena’s wrist slacked and allowed me to move closer to where I wanted to be. Pushing Mary’s back against the comforter as I took in the delicious scent of my Shellan. A hiss filling the room as my movement caused Selena to touch The Beast, his growl filling my mind at the contact. My fangs punched harder into Selena’s wrist without meaning to cause her any harm even as my pulls against the fragile wrist she offered were becoming slower and less needed.]
Selena: [The Warriors sudden movement to be closer to his Shellan caused my hand to briefly graze his back in a failed attempt at balancing myself. The loud hiss that followed filled the room. His bite dug in deeper to wrist from what I could only guess was anger.] Sire…..please forgive mine hands. They did not mean to touch you. I….I lost my balance. [My eyes tracked over to his Shellan and back at his body; still facing her I was unable to detect any anger.]
Mary: [A small smile crept across my face in an attempt to soothe Selena as one hand cupped Rhage’s cheek while the other sought out to soothe the Beast. Slipping my hand beneath his shirt to softly stroke the tattooed flesh that was rippling beneath my fingertips. My body contorted in such a way to press tightly to my Hellren, while at the same time not interfering with the feeding. The contented sigh that I heard let me know that Selena’s touch to the Beast was now forgotten]
Rhage: [The Beast purred as your soft fingers stroked down his current home on my back. My thigh crept between yours. Not long ago we were in the process of talking of the idea to have our own young with a chosen, is what I’m doing now what it would be like then, except it would be the chosen’s thighs my legs were parting. The Beast’s growl vibrated through my own chest as my fangs pierced harder against Selena’s wrist, the delicate skin tearing at my invasion, blood spilling from her wrist falling onto Mary’s see-through shirt. Slowly releasing Selena’s wrist from my fanged grasp as my eyes watched the blood seep into Mary’s shirt.] Thank you Selena. [My fangs began to pulse as I watched the blood that fell pool between your breasts. A grin full of mischief filled my face as I dipped below your chin, as trail of deep kisses leading me to that spot of blood.]
Selena: [Wincing at the pain of the tear to my skin but careful not to pull away until you released me for fear that I would make the injury worse. As soon as your fangs released its grasp on my wrist I pulled away and wrapped my other hand around it to help quell the bleeding. Turning my face away from your both, I quietly whispered] Very well sire, twas my pleasure to serve you and your Mistress. I shall take my leave if that is all that you both require of me. [Standing up from the bed I glanced down to see that my blood had dripped onto the lap of mine robe.]
Mary: [Digging my fingers into your hair and arching up into your nipping kisses. I didn’t even notice Selena getting up off of the bed to leave. Every one of my senses was consumed by you. Touch, sight, smell. The only thing I hadn’t done was taste you, and by your actions, I knew that was only a matter of time. Parting my thighs more as you continue to move lower, anticipation thrumming through my veins, but more than that. For the first time in a long time, the pained look in your eyes was no longer there. Instead, love and warmth and desire filled those teal orbs] #BrothersEternal
Rhage: [We had to have Zahk looked over in case he received any injuries we were unaware of. Sitting in the cold surgery room as Manny finished half checking and playing with Zahk I couldn’t help but feel like I was overflowing with happiness, yet I wasn’t ready to open the door of emotions that were held from my own shellan. We fought so much because of this young, yet he brought us so much happiness. Nodding to Manny as he gives me the “thumbs up”] Come on Little Man, I know someone who’s missed you.
Mary: [Taking yet another book from the library up to our room to give me something to occupy the hours that you had spent away. I made a promise to wait for you and I was going to keep my word. Work was the furthest thing from my mind. All my focus and energy was now on repairing our bond and dealing with the pain that I had caused you. Settling in the chair by the window, turning on the lamp and staring up at the starlit sky. I was anxious for you to walk back through the door]
Rhage: [Holding my index finger against my lips to keep Zahk from making a noise, laughing softly when he grins and laughs. Raising my hand to softly knock against the door. I was hoping if anything this would make you smile, nothing else I did made you smile.]
Mary: [Frowning as I hear the soft rap at the door, not expecting anyone other than you tonight. Setting my book down and walking across the room] Who is it? [My hand turning the knob and slowly opening the heavy wooden barrier. All the breath rushing from my body at the sight in front of me. Bringing my hand up to my throat as my eyes dart between you and Zahk, not knowing how this was even possible]
Rhage: “MAWEE” [Giving a lopsided grin as I set him on the floor his feet carrying him straight to you.] “I bac Mawee I bac!” [Nodding as your watery eyes look back to me.] He’s here for good. [Running a hand through my hair as I debated telling you the reasons, it wasn’t like me to keep secrets, but I doubted knowing the reasons would change him being here so there was no reason.] He’s ours.
Mary: [My arms immediately scooping Zahk up and pressing him close to me in a tight embrace. The tears spilled over as stunned gray eyes locked with yours. This had to be a dream. In reality, I was probably sound asleep in the chair with the book laid across my lap. Swallowing repeatedly and giving you a wobbly smile] Ours….really and truly ours?
Rhage: [Nodding once more as I place my hand against Zahk’s back as his arms tightened around your neck.] He is. He may need something to eat.. [Frowning as my fingertips felt the backside of his ribs, they didn’t feed him as he should be fed. Boy’s needed their food, yet they didn’t care. Fucking money.]
Mary: [Moving my hand from the back of Zahk’s head to cup your cheek, my thumb rasping against your stubbled jaw. Nothing I could say right now would make up for the barbs I had hurled at you over the last weeks. Mouthing the words] I love you, baby. [Leaning my head against the top of Zahk’s, inhaling the scent of stale sweat and dirt. I didn’t want the details of what happened right now, of why Zahk’s thin and unclean little body wound back up in my arms. I had my family back. Softly speaking against his blonde head] Zahk, you hungry, little man? We can call Fritz and have him make you something. “I wants thicken nuggets and fwies” [Looking at you with a thousand questions in my eyes and a true smile across my face]
Rhage: [A smile spreading on my face, yet didn’t quite reach my eyes. I was happy, thrilled, overjoyed even to have him back in our family, in your arms. I wanted to shout from the rooftops that our family was together again. But after so much heartache I still needed time, at least for now until I could look at you and not feel the words or things that were thrown at me. Nodding my head towards the door behind me.] Take him to eat, I should shower. [Slowly pulling the blood covered shirt from my back, even in its black state the rich red color of my own blood could be seen.] I’ll come down when I’m done.
Mary: [Setting Zahk down on his feet and turning his little shoulder toward the bathroom] Go wash your hands, little man, and then we’ll go eat. [Needing a moment alone with you before you retreated into silence again. Sure steps taking me to stand directly in front of you, leaning up and kissing your strong jaw] I’m sorry….for everything. [Zahk’s little body barreling into my legs bringing our little moment to an end. Lifting him in my arms again, my eyes settling on yours again] Take your time, baby. We’ll save you some food. [Carrying Zahk with me as he waves to you over my shoulder, my heart lighter than it had been in weeks, but it still wasn’t healed. It wouldn’t be until I chased the pain that haunted your gaze away] #Bonded
