Part Seventeen- (Not completely safe for work…just wait until Thursday.)
Ray landed on the ground with Patches’ twins piling on top of him with shrieks of delight. He wrestled with them, making sure not to be too rough. The rest of the family sat on the deck and watched. Their amused smiles told him they found the fact that the twins pinned him so easily funny.
He squeaked and squirmed as Lucy, Patches’ daughter, figured out how ticklish his sides were. He rolled and twisted, shouting with laughter as little fingers dug into his sides.
Sneeze. Thud. Stars exploded behind Ray’s eyelids as Linus’ head slammed into Ray’s chin. The metallic taste of blood filled his mouth from his teeth biting into his tongue.
“That’s enough, guys. Uncle Lou wants his boyfriend to remain whole and not end up in the hospital.”
Ray sneezed again as he blinked up into Rover’s dark eyes. Reaching out, he took Rover’s hand and gasped as the man pulled to his feet without pause.
His head spinning, he felt his knees start to buckle. Strong arms wrapped around his waist and he rested his forehead against the board chest in front of him. Sneeze. Wide hands cradled the back of his head and stroked down his back to cup his ass.
“We’re really going to have to figure out why you keep sneezing around me.”
Ray looked into Lou’s twinkling eyes. He couldn’t help but grin, even while he blushed.
“I don’t know what it is about you. Maybe Lassie’s right about your fabric softener.”
Lou chuckled. “It could be.”
“I think you should take Ray home. He’s passed inspection and I don’t want to risk the chance of the twins breaking something vital.”
Spike stepped into Ray’s line of vision. He moved away and touched his chin. Lou’s oldest sister joined him, pushing his hand away and studying his face on her own.
He searched her face, trying to find what it was about her that scared her siblings. Sure, she was probably very protective of the younger members of her family, but they acted like she would drag them out behind the wood shed and beat them if they angered her. Ray didn’t see that.
Spike was a beautiful woman who would keep her beauty as she got older. There was confidence in the way she moved and strength in her voice. The corners of her mouth held a hint of sadness to them, but he guessed it had to do with her break-up. Yet the longer he stared at her, the darker her eyes became and he saw a flash of something deep within them that made him take a step back.
Spike made an odd rumbling noise low in her throat and Lou answered before leading Ray towards the front of the house.
“It was nice meeting you all,” he called as Lou dragged him away.
“Stop by the bar anytime, Ray. You’ll be welcomed there.” Rover dropped an arm around Spike’s shoulders and squeezed.
“I’ll make sure to save a spot at the bar for you.” Bandit waved and winked.
Sneezing, Ray shook his head. “I like your family.”
Lou didn’t say anything until they were in the truck and pulling out of the driveway. Ray wondered if he had done something to make Lou angry.
“Are you okay?”
“I’m fine. Just thinking.” Lou reached across the seat and clasped Ray’s hand. “My family likes you as well. Some more than others,” Lou muttered.
Ray laughed. “Bandit doesn’t mean anything by it, Lou. You should know that. I think he’s just a born flirt.”
“He was born to be a pain in my ass.” Lou shook his head. “Don’t worry about it. I’m used to him pushing every button I have. I’ll control myself, but he better not lick you again.”
Tugging his hand free, Ray moved as close as he could get to Lou and stroked his hand over his lover’s thigh. “I wouldn’t let him. There’s only one Canis brother I want licking me.”
“If you’re not careful, you’re going to find yourself naked in the back of my truck and I’ll show you how well I can use my tongue,” Lou growled.
Goose bumps covered Ray’s skin at Lou’s sexy growl. Arousal swamped him and his cock swelled. He shifted, wanting to touch himself, but gave in to the urge to see if Lou would follow through with his threat.
He leaned forward and palmed the large bulge at Lou’s groin. Ray squeezed Lou’s cock with one hand and wiggled his free hand under Lou’s shirt, skimming up over firm muscles to pinch one hard nipple.
The curse was low and Ray felt it vibrate in Lou’s chest. He removed his hands in a hurry to brace them against the dashboard as Lou whipped the truck onto a dirt road and slammed it into park.
“Out. In back. Naked now.” Lou barked out the orders like a guard dog making warning noises.
Ray’s hand trembled as he fumbled with his seat belt. By the time he managed to free himself and get out of the truck, Lou stood at the back with the tailgate down and his shirt off.
“Shit. Blanket.” Lou started to stalk back to the cab. He pointed at Ray. “Naked.”
Ray bit his lip to stop his moan from bursting out. Guess he poked the primitive Alpha dwelling inside Lou and he was going to find out just how dominating Lou could be. His erection slapped his stomach as he pushed down his pants and underwear.
Cool air washed over his heated flesh as he stood naked and waiting for Lou to come back with the blanket. Lou’s heated gaze touched Ray’s body and Ray swore he could feel each spot those burning eyes hit. Lou spread the blanket out and gestured for Ray to climb in.
He crawled up on the tailgate and made his way farther into the bed of the truck. Lou caressed his ass with one large hand before delivering a hard smack.
“Oh,” he gasped, arching his back and pushing back against the sting.
“On your back, babe.”
Ray rolled over to his back and stretched, his hands above his head, showing off the sheen of sweat on his skin. Lou snarled slightly and knelt beside him on the blanket. Before Ray could drop his hands, Lou captured them in his hand.
“What are you doing?” Ray tugged against Lou’s firm grip.
“Insuring you don’t touch me. I want to taste you all over and we won’t get past your lips if I let you get your hands on me.”
Ray almost swallowed his tongue as Lou wrapped rope around his wrists and anchored the length to a hook at the front of the truck bed. He tested the tightness. If he really tried, he could probably get free, but gentle yanking wouldn’t undo the rope.
“By the time I’m done with you, you’ll need to wear long sleeves to cover your wrists at work on Monday.” Lou leered at him.
Flushing, he wondered if he should protest or if he was perverted because the thought of being at Lou’s mercy caused him to come right then and there-without Lou even touching him.
“Sorry,” he mumbled, closing his eyes in embarrassment.
The rough rasp of Lou’s tongue licking Ray’s skin clean of come drew a quivering groan from Ray. He opened his eyes to see the expressions of pride and lust war for prominence on Lou’s face. Lou’s glowing hazel eyes met his and he flushed again, but this time with desire.
“I don’t know if I’ll be able to last long enough to taste every inch of you. Knowing you want me so much that you’ll come just from the thought of being at my mercy…” Lou stopped, closed his eyes and took a deep breath. “It makes me crazy enough to lose control, Ray.”
As Lou opened his eyes, Ray saw the wildness he’d seen before begin to swirl in Lou’s gaze. Lou leaned forward to nip at Ray’s nipple and Ray thought he saw a hint of fang. Shaking his head, he told himself it was the overwhelming desire flooding his brain making him think crazy things like that.
He met Lou’s eyes bravely, not caring that he was tied and helpless before this man. He wanted Lou to take him, to dominate and mark him.
“Fuck me, Lou. Tonight, here and now, take me like you really want to.”
Whatever chains that were holding Lou back snapped and the wolf-like howl Lou uttered settled inside Ray like a missing piece of him had finally been returned. Lou straddled Ray, knees on either side of his hips and hands braced to the right and left of Ray’s head.
“You’re mine and tonight you will learn what that means.”
Ray swallowed and nodded, knowing that there was no going back from this.
