“Alice? What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Oh, honey,” she wept. “Kyle’s legal defence team...included Elenor.”
What did she just say?
“I’m sorry. That can’t be right.”
“It’s true,” she confirmed.
“That would mean Drake’s mom helped Kyle stay out of prison.”
Alice nodded. “That’s exactly what that means.”
My eyes swelled with tears and I swallowed the bile that rose in my throat. “I’ve known Drake and his family for years. How could she do this to me?”
“I don’t know, sweetheart. I could never have defended a guy like Kyle.”
The tears overflowed and cascaded down my face. “I never saw her at the trial.”
“She was always working behind the scenes.”
I used the palm of my hand to wipe my cheek. “It’s all making sense now. Drake said he met Krystal during the trial. It didn’t even occur to me that could be the reason they knew each other.”
“You wouldn’t have known if they didn’t tell you,” Tyler said.
“Drake knew,” I replied. “And I trusted Drake.”
“He’s not a genuine person, baby. By the sounds of it he never was.”
“I wish I had known that before I gave him two years of my life.”
Alice’s eyes widened. “You were with him for two years?”
“Yes,” I nodded. “I found out not long ago he was cheating on me for those two years.”
“I knew Drake was engaged, but I had no idea who he was getting married to,” Alice replied. “I can’t see how Elenor is okay with it.”
“I don’t know, but Drake and Krystal deserve each other.” My chair screeched as I stood. “Will you please excuse me for a moment?”
“Are you okay, baby?”
“Yeah. I just need some air.”
“Hey, baby. You okay?”
I was pulled from my thoughts when Tyler stepped outside of the house. A deep sigh escaped my lips before I shifted my attention to him. “I felt like I couldn’t breathe before.”
“I know it’s a lot to take in. I didn’t know any of them, but I’m surprised they could do this to someone they’ve treated like family.”
Tyler wrapped his arms around me, and I settled against his chest. “I’m still in shock and denial about everything that happened.”
“It will take awhile for you to get used to the news.”
“Just when I work through something...BAM! There’s another curve ball.” I wiped the stray tear that fell down my cheek. “It’s too much, Tyler.”
“I don’t care what happens. I will be here with you through it all.” He secured his arms tighter around my shaking body. “You’re not going through it alone.”
“Thank you, baby.”
“I love you, Summer,” he whispered. “Just remember that.”
“I love you too.”
“I might love your mom a little more than you do,” I joked.
Tyler laughed. “I think she loves you a little more than she loves me.”
“She’s such a sweet woman. I still can’t believe she’s your mom.”
“Why?” Tyler tilted his head. “Because I’m not sweet?”
I playfully slapped him on the arm. “That’s not what I meant.”
“I know what you meant. After meeting her five years ago, who would have thought you would be the girlfriend of her son.”
“Who would have thought you were going to have a girlfriend at all?”
“I told you. That’s how much power you have over me.”
A slow smirk spread on my lips. “I’ll have more power when I get to cuff you to the bed again.”
“You’re going there right now, are you?”
“I’ll always go there with you,” I winked.
He wrapped his arms around my body and placed a kiss on my temple. “I know, baby. I’ve met my match.”
“Well, believe me. No one has ever been able to satisfy me---like Finlay.”
“Oh, really?” Tyler let out a deep laugh. “Maybe I need to remind you how much I can satisfy you.”
Tyler pulled back from the hug and picked me up before he threw me over his shoulders. “Ahhh! Tyler,” I shrieked. “Put me down!”
He walked over to the kitchen and sat me down on the island. “So, tell me again who has been able to satisfy you the most?” Tyler grabbed my top and tore it before he threw it on the kitchen floor.
“Tyler! I actually liked that top!”
He smirked before helping me off the bench. Tyler grasped my skirt and unzipped the back before it slipped down my legs. “Tell me, Summer.”
I was left in my bra and panties before Tyler decided to forcefully remove those as well. The hunger in his eyes mirrored the desperation in my own. Tyler’s hands slipped over the material of my panties before a growl passed his lips. “Fuck, you’re wet!”
“Tell me, Summer,” he demanded before he slid down my panties and unclasped my bra.
“It’s you,” I purred. “No one has ever been able to satisfy me like you do.”
A smirk played on his lips before he lifted me up onto the bench again. The cold marble contrasted the warmth of my bare ass.
“Good,” Tyler said. “Because no other girl has ever or will ever satisfy me like you can too.”
“Bet your ass no girl can.”
He laughed before he cupped my face and stole my breath with his kiss. I pulled back and smiled. “Baby, as much as I love you, my ass is getting cold on this bench.”
I wrapped my arms around his neck and threw myself in his arms. “Take me to your bedroom and have your way with me.”
He shook his head. “You’re still recovering.”
My lips pouted. “You got me so worked up.”
Tyler’s lips curved up. “Don’t worry. I’ll still take care of my girl,” he growled, and carried me to the bedroom then laid me on the soft mattress. “Now open up your legs. I haven’t had my dessert.”
Obliging his request, I spread my legs wide and Tyler plunged his tongue into my aching center. “Oh, my God!”
His hands grasped my waist and he drew me closer to his mouth while he licked between my folds. Flicking at my clit and eliciting desperate moans from my mouth. “Mmmm.”
I could hear the slurping sounds he made as he drank the wetness from my seeping pussy. He stopped long enough to say a few words before he brought his mouth over my core. “You always taste so sweet.”
The moment he inserted a finger in to move with his tongue, my hips bucked up to meet his thrusts. “Tyler, this feels so fucking good.” I grasped the sheets with my fists while he tasted everything my body released. “Tyler...please...”
He stopped and glanced at me. “What’s wrong? Are you okay?”
“Baby, please,” I begged. “I need you inside of me.”
Tyler shook his head. “No, we can’t. I want you to relax and enjoy this. I don’t want you using up your energy.”
“I promise you I’m okay,” I pleaded.
“Are you begging me right now?”
He climbed on top of me and I placed my hands on his hips. “How badly do you want me?”
I leaned up and pressed my lips against his. Between the urgency of the kiss, my moans and the way my tongue moved with his, Tyler realized how bad I wanted him.
“Fuck,” he cursed.
“Does that answer your question?”
“Fine. But you can’t ride me.”
My eyebrows arched before I flipped him over, so I laid on top. “Wanna bet?”
“I love it when you take control.”
My tongue glided over my dry lips before I sat up. “You’ve got too many clothes on.”
“So, what are you going to do about it?”
A smirk played on my lips before he watched me patiently remove every bit of clothing he had. After grabbing protection from his wallet, I eased it on his cock before he smiled.
“Okay, you can ride me.”
I giggled. “Wasn’t really giving you a choice in the matter. If you want to fuck me, I’m good with riding you.”
“Hell yeah, I want to fuck you,” he growled. His expression softened for a moment. “But if you feel sick, we stop.”
I couldn’t help but smile at him.
“I mean it, baby.”
“Fine,” I agreed. “But the way I’m feeling right now, I’m not going to be able to stop. And you’re not going to want me to.”
Tyler’s hands moved to my ass as I lifted my body to lower onto his. My body grinded on him, and I could feel him get harder with each thrust. His hands moved up to my breasts and I leaned over to allow his mouth to cover the curve before his tongue flicked at the nub. My ass bounced up and down at the same time.
“Mmmm.” The vibrations from his mouth rippled through my breasts. Tyler’s hands slid up and down my back. After stealing a kiss from his lips, he broke our connection. “Are you okay?”
“I’m definitely okay.”
“Good,” he smiled. “Because I need you to ride me harder.”
“Anything for you.”
I sat back up and my body moved up and down picking up speed. It was easy to see he was pleased by the expression on his face and the grunts that growled from his lips. “Aarghhh. Yeah!”
Harder and faster I felt his cock inch deeper inside. “Oh, my God!”
“That’s it, baby. Ride my cock.”
After being sick for a few days, a wave of energy bolted through to me and Tyler was getting the benefits. “I don’t want to stop!”
“Then don’t stop. Keep fucking me until we both cum!”
I tightened my pussy muscles around his cock and gave him a squeeze. “Fuck, I love it when you do that.”
Tyler’s open palm met with my ass. “Oh!”
“I fucking love you.”
“Oh, God. Tyler, I love you too.”
I kept bouncing until I could feel myself building up.
“I know, baby. Just cum with me!”
My words pushed him over the edge and the sounds I heard from his lips pushed me over mine. “Fuck. Fuck. Fuck!”
After screaming out his name, my body crashed onto his. Tyler’s cock was still inside, but I didn’t want to move.
“I shouldn’t have doubted you,” he said and kissed me on my temple. “That was amazing.”
“Don’t ever underestimate me again,” I joked.
“If it means you do that again to prove me wrong, I’ll be underestimating you more often.”
I giggled against his warm chest and the beating of his heart thundered in my ears. “Is that right?”
“Yep,” he replied. “You can ride me like that any time.”
“Don’t worry. I plan on it.”
Tyler’s eyes found mine before he whispered against my lips. “Move in with me,” he asked. “Or I could move into your place. I don’t care. I just want to be with you. I mean-.”
Before he had a chance to continue, I pressed my mouth against his. “I’d love to.”
A FEW WEEKS LATER
I was on my way home from work. Tyler had asked to move in together and we decided that his place was ideal and that I would put up my own for rent. It was Friday afternoon, and I wanted to go home and get as much rest as I could, because move in day was Saturday.
After entering my home, I stepped inside and locked the door. I made my way to my room to get changed, when suddenly, the bedroom door shut behind me. When I turned around, a strong hand struck my face, and I fell to the floor. There was no time to react. I glanced up to see who it was, but the tears from the pain clouded my eyes.
When the intruder spoke, their chilling voice numbed me to my bones.
“Hello again, beautiful.”
