I woke up in my hospital bed. Tyler sat on the chair beside me with his hands covering his mouth. I suddenly missed the warmth from his body. “Good morning.”
“Good morning, beautiful.”
The tone of his voice didn’t match the words which came out from his mouth. “Are you okay?”
“I’m okay. Just worried about you.”
“I’m feeling so much better,” I sighed.
“You had me worried, baby.”
His jaw moved when he swallowed hard, and I knew there was something he needed to tell me. “Tyler, what is it? What’s wrong?”
He leaned over and grabbed my hand. “I saw my mom early morning. After I woke up, I noticed a few missed calls from her.”
“I told her what happened, and she wanted to come and see you,” he explained. “She told me she had something to tell me...about Kyle.”
“Kyle? What about him?”
“Ahhh, you’re awake. Good.” The doctor stood outside my door.
I shifted my attention to Tyler who mouthed the word Later to me.
“You seem much better today. Have you gotten your energy back?”
“I have actually. I’m feeling heaps better.”
He glanced at his chart and looked back up at me with a smile. “Good. If you get cleared now, I’ll be able to discharge you today.”
The doctor tilted his head. “You don’t sound too happy.”
As excited as I was about leaving the hospital, my mind was preoccupied with what Tyler needed to tell me. God, why does he look so worried?
“I am, believe me. I just have a few things on my mind right now.” The doctor checked me over and was happy to release me. Once he left my room, I shifted my attention back to Tyler. “Okay. Tell me.”
“Okay,” he began. “Someone has come forward claiming that Kyle attacked them,” he almost whispered. “Actually, there were two people.”
“What?” My heart thundered in my chest, and I knew what Tyler told me was probably true.
“Yeah, they’ve arrested him.”
“Well, that’s great!” I beamed. “Not that he hurt those girls, but great that he’s been arrested.”
“So, why do you sound like him getting arrested is a bad thing?”
Tyler squeezed my hand. “My mom thinks they’ll ask you to take the stand again.”
“She thinks they’ll try to convince the jury that he’s innocent and the girls wanted to have sex with him, like they said about you.”
I sat up in bed and growled. “That’s fucking crazy. They can’t believe that again! I mean three people have now claimed he’s attacked them!” My jaw clenched and I tried to calm my shaking fists. “Going by his behavior, it wouldn’t surprise me if there were more that came forward.”
“Will you be okay to testify again?”
“Of course. I’m much stronger now than I was back then,” I replied. “I was so vulnerable during the trial. I wish I had stuck up for myself more.” I took Tyler’s hand in mine again. “I’m so glad your mom was there.”
“I’m happy she was too, though she’s really worried now as well.”
“Ask her to come over for dinner. We can talk about it. I’ve changed and that asshole needs to be in prison, and if I can help get him there, I’d be happy to do it.”
“Baby, I have no idea what kind of person you were back then, but I can see what kind of person you are now,” he beamed. “You are amazing and stronger than anyone I know.”
I smiled at him. “Thank you, baby. I love you so much.”
“God knows, I love you too.”
“Hey, baby. Do you need help?” I asked Tyler as I walked into the kitchen. He was preparing a casserole for dinner.
“Hey, what are you doing up?”
“I feel bad. I wanted to help.”
He shifted his focus on me and pulled me in for a hug. I took in the aroma of spices which had settled on his clothes.
“I know, baby. But the doctor told you to rest.”
“I just wanted a cuddle.”
“Is that all you use me for?” he joked.
“Not just the cuddle,” I chuckled. “Your cock is pretty sweet, too.”
Tyler pulled away from me and shook his head. “I’m sorry, baby. Not until you’re better.”
“I know. Now it’s my turn to wait.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll make it up to you when you’ve recovered.”
I tilted my head and smiled. “Really? How?”
“I’ll let you cuff me to the bed again since I know how much you loved doing that to me before.”
Even though I was recovering, a wetness settled between my thighs at the thought of doing naughty things to Tyler. “Mmmm.”
Tyler sighed. “You need to stop.”
“You know why.”
I sucked at my bottom lip. “I want to hear you say it, Ty.”
“Because you’re making me hard as fuck when you moan like that.”
A smirk played on my lips. “I need a shower before your mom comes over.”
I stepped back and slowly stripped out of all my clothes while he watched me. After dumping them on the floor, I winked and made my way to the bathroom.
“Was that an invitation?” Tyler yelled.
“What do you think?” I screamed back at him.
“I think it was definitely an invitation!”
I turned on the faucet and allowed the water to cascade over me. A moment later, Tyler stood behind me completely naked.
“You got the hint.”
“Do you need any help?”
“There are a few hard to reach places you could help me with,” I whispered.
“Oh, I’d be happy to.”
Tyler grabbed the shampoo from the caddy and lathered up my hair, using his fingertips to scrub my scalp. “Oh, that feels good.”
His erection dug into my back and the wetness that pooled between my legs only intensified. I turned and grabbed the body wash before I smoothed it all over him. Starting with his neck, I worked my way down his back and around to his chest. Desperate to feel him, my hand moved lower to his throbbing cock.
I moved up and down with deep strokes. “Is this okay?”
“Fuck, yeah. It’s okay.”
As I worked his impressive length, his hands moved between my legs. “Oh, fuck. How wet are you?”
“Very. It must mean I’m feeling better.”
“I don’t mind doing this,” he said. “But no sex until you’re fully recovered.”
“Either way I get to please you,” I purred, and moved my hand faster.
“Ahhh mmm,” Tyler moaned.
He slid two fingers inside me. I rested my head against his shoulders and used my free hand to hold on. Tyler’s thumb rubbed my clit which elicited loud moans to escape my lips. “Oh, God!”
I jerked him off while his finger thrusts in and out of my pussy until we were both ready to explode. ’Hold onto me, baby. I’ll make sure you don’t fall when you cum all over my fingers.”
My free hand went around his neck while the other pumped his erection. “Fuck, Tyler. I’m going to cum.”
His cock pulsated at the same time he groaned. “Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Oh, Summer!”
“Baby. Oh, my God!”
Tyler held onto me tight as my body trembled against him. The warmness of his cum spread over my hand.
“The things you do to me, Summer.”
“You do them to me too, baby.”
“How are you feeling today, honey?” Alice asked as she stepped inside my home.
“I’m doing much better thank you.”
She pulled me in for a quick hug. “It’s good to see you again.”
“Always good to see you, too.”
I led Alice to the dining room where Tyler had set up dinner. We sat down and started our meals when Kyle came up in our conversation.
“Are you going to the stand if they ask you?”
“Definitely. The asshole needs to be behind bars.”
“He does indeed.”
“Maybe that’s what Drake was trying to tell you,” Tyler said.
I shrugged my shoulders. “Maybe.”
Alice’s fork clinked against her plate. “Drake? You mean Elenor’s son?”
A look of horror swept across her face. “You know him?”
“Yes, of course. We were seeing each other for a while.” I shook my head. “He’s getting married to Kyle’s sister.”
Alice’s hands flung over her face and she vigorously shook her head. “Oh, my God.”
“Mom, what is it? What’s wrong?”
“I’m so sorry.”
