SUMMER’S POINT OF VIEW
“You’re back,” Tyler smiled.
“I am. How are you feeling?”
“Better, but still tired.”
Tyler moved aside and I stepped into his house. “You probably need more sleep.”
“I do...but I need a shower first.”
Even though he was sick, Tyler looked incredible in his dark grey shirt, and the thought of him naked only intensified my need for him.
“Where’s your mom?”
“She had to go. She left five minutes before you came back.” Tyler closed the door and we made our way into the lounge room.
“She’s incredibly sweet.”
“She said the same thing about you.”
I placed my laptop on the floor beside the couch before I shifted my attention to Tyler. “Need help with your shower?”
He raised his brows with a smirk.
“Damn, Tyler. I don’t mean it like that,” I chuckled. “You’re still weak and probably contagious.”
“Help would be awesome.”
“Shower or bath?”
He rubbed his thumb across his chin. “Depends...”
“Whether or not you join me.”
“Not until your ass is better,” I winked. “Come on. I’ll draw you a bath.”
Tyler was weak, so I helped him to the ensuite bathroom before I plugged the drain and turned on the faucet. “Do you need any help?”
“Taking off my clothes?”
I shifted my attention to him. “Yes.”
“Thanks.” Tyler lifted his arms up and I grabbed the hem of his shirt before I pulled it over his head. Heat drew to my face at his bare torso.
“You see me naked for two seconds and you’re already blushing.”
“Do you blame me? The second you’re all better, I’m going to be all over you.”
“I’m better! I’m better!” he shrieked.
I couldn’t help but laugh. “You’ll just have to wait a little while longer.
After Tyler enjoyed his bath, I helped him get changed. He relaxed for most of the day while I worked. By the end of the night, we had ordered in and settled in his bed watching a movie neither of us had seen before.
“Are you comfortable?”
“Very,” I beamed. Tyler wrapped his arm around me and I rested my head against his chest.
I was content, until a scene came on where a girl was getting chased by a guy. The night I was attacked flashed in my mind, and I closed my eyes and groaned. Tyler noticed I was uncomfortable.
The character defended herself and turned on her attacker. I couldn’t help but smile.
“Badass,” Tyler beamed.
“She sure is.”
“He deserved everything he got,” Tyler laughed. “Asshole.”
Silence filled the air and Tyler noticed the sudden mood shift. “Are you sure you’re okay?”
“I’m fine. It’s just...” I sighed. “The scenes where a girl gets attacked always freak me out.”
“Hits a little too close to home for me.” I cleared my throat and shifted my attention to Tyler. “You know I used to be like you.”
“What do you mean?”
“Carefree in her relationships. The one-night stands. I was that girl.”
“Really? I can’t see that about you.”
“Both Ellie and I would go out every weekend and hook up. We loved it. The parties. The guys and drinking. I thought it was so much fun.”
Tyler ran his fingers up and down my arm. “What changed?”
“Ellie and I were invited to a house party. We got there and the place was incredible. We were having a good time. Some guy came up to us and was acting all drunk and his friend came and took him away. I thought his friend was cute. Ellie danced with some other guy and the cute one found me.” I paused for a moment. “He seemed nice and normal; you know? We had a couple of drinks, and he took me up to one of the rooms upstairs. I didn’t mind at first. Once the doors closed, he turned on me. Called me a whore.”
Tyler’s mouth opened as though he knew where the story was going. “Summer...”
“I was shocked that he called me that. We were just kissing each other before and it was all good. After he said what he did, he hit me. I fell to the floor and tried to get up to leave but he wouldn’t let me.” I swallowed the lump in my throat and blinked the tears from my eyes. “He told me he would give me a night I would never forget. And he did. I haven’t forgotten that night.”
“Summer, are you saying what I think you’re saying?”
I nodded, and a single tear dropped down from my red eyes. Tyler wiped it away. “God, Summer. I’m so sorry.”
“After he said that, he forced himself on me. I tried to fight him, but he was too strong. I tried to scream but the noise from the party drowned out my cries for help.”
Tyler shook his head in disbelief.
“This guy was everything a person could hate in someone. I just didn’t see it until it was too late. When he finished, the asshole had the nerve to thank me before he left me bleeding on the floor. After a while, I managed to get up and find Ellie, who was still outside with the guy she met.”
Tyler’s jaw clenched and he held me tighter. “Did you call the cops?”
I shook my head. “Ellie took me to the hospital first. They called them from there.”
“I get it now. I get why you changed.”
“There’s actually something else.” I sat up and turned to Tyler. “Your mom saved my life.”
“What? My mom? You’ve met her before?”
“I have. It was at the trial. After I was questioned by the lawyer, I bolted into the bathroom and balled my eyes out. She spoke to me and told me things I needed to hear. She was kind to me when not many people were. It was the worst time of my life, and she was there for me. She didn’t even know me.”
“My mom’s amazing.”
“She really is. I’ve met her twice. That day I got questioned on the stand and the day of the verdict.”
“Please tell me that asshole got what he deserved.”
I shook my head. “He was found not guilty.”
“What?!” Tyler growled. “How is that possible.”
“He had good lawyers. After the trial I kept thinking about what your mom said to me, about being strong. That’s when I decided to take self-defense classes. I stopped doing the whole one-night stands and partied way less. By that time, Ellie and Adrian were serious.”
“You have been to hell and back.”
“And stronger for it.”
“Badass actually,” Tyler smiled.
“I want you to know I never judged you for your lifestyle choices, because I was the same. I just found a different way.”
“I get it. I’m surprised you knew my mom.”
I stretched my lips. “Imagine my surprise when I opened the door for her this morning after not seeing her for four years.”
Tyler wrapped his arm around my neck and kissed my temple. “She likes you.”
“Your mom is amazing.”
“She raised me on her own since I was five.”
I drew my brow together. “Your dad?”
“He got up and left one day. I haven’t heard or seen from him since.”
“God, I’m so sorry.”
“It wasn’t easy. Mainly for my mom.”
“He was your dad. It couldn’t have been easy for you either.”
“It bothered me, now I just think fuck it. It’s his loss.”
“Definitely his loss.” I leaned over and planted a kiss on his cheek. After finishing the movie, we curled up together and fell asleep.
THREE MONTHS LATER
My eyes gazed towards the ceiling until I shifted my attention to Tyler, who was asleep in the bed.
Time to wake you up, baby.
I leaned to the side, opened the drawer before I pulled out the bag containing the silver handcuffs I just purchased the day before.
Tyler groaned when I gently pushed him on his back. His eyes flung open the moment I cuffed him to the posts. “Summer? What the?”
“Good morning, Tyler.”
“Good morning.” A slow smirk spread across his lips. “I was wondering when you were going to do this to me.”
He nodded. “You’re not going to leave me though, right?”
“Pfft. So some other girl can find you? Not a fucking chance.”
He cocked his eyebrows. “You got spare keys?”
I chuckled. “Pull your hands apart.”
Tyler tugged his hands and the cuffs slipped off. “Oh.”
“You can take them off yourself. You’re safe...for now.”
“Put them back on me.”
I smiled, bit my lip before securing him to the bed. “I have rules, baby. You’re not allowed to touch me. No matter how bad you want to, please keep these cuffs on.”
He nodded and licked his lips. “Yes, ma’am.”
Tyler was almost naked, so the only item of clothing I had to remove were his sweatpants and boxers. The moment I did, his cock bounced. He leaned up and watched me undress agonizingly slow before I straddled his waist.
“Fuck, babe. You sitting here naked on me like that, is not making your rule easy to follow.” I leaned over to kiss him but stopped when I was inches away from his mouth. When he tried to reach up, I pulled back and shook my head, eliciting moan. “Dammit. Please kiss me.” Wanting to tease him further, I ran my tongue across his bottom lip and a deep breath escaped his mouth. I pulled back again. “You’re making it really hard for me to keep these cuffs on.”
“And I haven’t even started yet.”
Desperate to feel him, I traced my fingers over the curves of his muscles to feel the warmth of his skin. When his eyes closed, I gave him what he begged for, and pressed my mouth against his. Tyler’s unique taste provoked a moan to release. “Mmmm.”
My lips ran down his jaw before they landed at his neck. A light suck caused him to breathe out. I worked my way down his chest to his stomach, kissing every inch of his perfect form before I finally reached his twitching cock. It immediately hardened when I grasped it in my hand. Starting at the tip, I worked my way down his full length, tasting him with my tongue at the same time.
“Fuck, Summer! That feels so good.” I grasped the base of his member, and slowly moved up and down with my mouth. “I love it when you do that.”
After massaging him for some time, I climbed back on his body. “I’ll put a condom on you in a minute. I just want you to feel how wet you make me.”
I lifted my body and held him in my hand before I teased his tip with my heated core. “Fuck. You’re so wet.”
The smirk that played on my lips mirrored his own. “I want to suck you again.” I crawled down Tyler’s body and continued to please him.
With his balls in my mouth, Tyler growled. “Fuck. I beg you!”
I looked up and smiled. “What do you beg for?”
“Please fucking ride me before I take these cuffs off and fuck you myself.”
Tyler’s breath hitched when I placed my legs on either side of his waist. “So, right now would be the time you would take your hand and play with my breasts, but since your hands are cuffed to the bed, you’re just going to have to watch me play with myself.”
“Ahhh, fuck. Don’t tease me like that.” My hands caressed over his curves before I massaged them slowly. Tyler’s mouth gaped open when they travelled down to my throbbing center. “Don’t do it, baby.” He watched my fingers dance over my clit, and when a moan escaped my mouth, Tyler’s cock hardened beneath me.
“You told me you wanted to watch me at the hotel, remember?”
“Yeah, but not when I can’t fucking touch you dammit.”
I pulled out my glistened fingers and smirked. “Wanna taste?”
Tyler nodded, and his eyes closed the moment the flavours hit his tongue. “Mmmm.”
“Are you ready for me, baby?”
After grabbing some protection and putting it on Tyler, I climbed back on before I settled on his body. “Fuck.” I laid my hands flat against his chest, and slowly moved up and down.
His moans intensified the harder I rode him. “Fuck, Summer!” He continued to beg at the same time he bucked his hips, which caused him to inch deeper inside my core. “Fucking ride me.”
“Fuck me till we both come.”
I held onto his hands while I rode us both to our orgasm. My body trembled at the same time as his.
“Uh. Uh. Uh,” he grunted.
I leaned down and kissed Tyler’s mouth before he immediately pulled the cuffs off. He flipped me over with our mouths still attached before he broke our connection. “You’re incredible, do you know that?”
“You do realize I’m going to use these cuffs on you one day.”
I smiled at him. “I’m okay with that.”
With my strength, I rolled him, so I was on top. “Now that’s the difference between being cuffed to the bed by someone you’re actually in a relationship with, rather than by some random girl.”
“Oh, baby. I definitely prefer your way.”
