20a. - Blood in the Water Pt. 1
Hacker Rule #2: When the truth is hidden, the ones we love the most suffer.
“It’s gonna be okay! You’re gonna be okay! Alright?!”
Tiana rushed down the hallway of the hospital, fighting for space with the nurses beside her as she clung to the edge of the hospital bed. “I’m sorry! I’m so sorry! Please, be okay! Please!” she cried. Tears streaked down her face as she held the limp, bloody hand hanging off of the hospital bed.
“Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask you to step away,” the nurse said firmly.
“Please! He’s my friend!” Tiana pleaded.
“We need to work on him! Please move!” the nurse demanded. Tiana stopped in the middle of the hallway, staring in shock as the nurses rushed the hospital bed down the corridor. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she held her hands to her face, sobbing. She fell to her knees as her sobs rang out in the corridor.
Owen cautiously walked up behind Tiana and crouched down next to her. He placed a comforting hand on the back of her shoulder. “...T...” he said softly.
Tiana turned her head to look at him, and the sorrow in her deep brown eyes nearly broke his heart. “If he dies! Because of me! Owen!” Tiana cried as she threw her arms around his neck. Owen wrapped his arms around her waist and held her tight as she sobbed into his shoulder. He looked down the hallway to see the nurses turn the hospital bed into a room.
“I wanted a life with you, Owen...” Jay sobbed.
Owen had never been so angry with himself. That choices he didn’t think much of would come full circle and end up threatening the life of the person he loved with all his heart. He looked at Tiana who was trembling, terrified. In a state of shock not just because of his confession but also the lethal weapon pointed in her face.
“I’m sorry,” Owen said. “Okay? I’m so sorry that I couldn’t give you what you wanted. I didn’t mean to put you through this. But please, just... let her go. This isn’t her fault. If anyone deserves your anger, it’s me. Just let her go, Jay.” Owen prayed that his words would get through to him. He looked at Jay and couldn’t believe that a man that he once shared a bed with was actually threatening to kill the object of his affections and the one who held his heart.
“Why can’t you love me the way you love her? The way I love you?” Jay asked.
Owen could feel Tiana’s eyes on him. He didn’t want her to find out like this. He didn’t want her to find out at all. He thought he could kill his feelings for her, but they only seemed to grow with every day that he spent with her. He wanted her so badly it hurt. “I can’t help how I feel, Jay. But you deserve better than this. Better than me. Please don’t make her pay for my mistakes.”
Owen couldn’t tell if his words were actually getting through to him. His fingers itched, ready to leap in the line of gunfire if it meant saving Tiana’s life. “Jay, please...” Owen persisted. He locked eyes with Jay, hoping he would see the desperation in his eyes.
But Jay’s eyes soon locked onto Tiana, and that was it. “Fuck her. And fuck you.”
On instinct, Owen headed straight for Tiana. He wrapped his arms around her waist and shielded her body with his as he knocked her to the ground. He heard 3 rounds go off and waited for the pain.
But it never came.
The bullets didn’t ricochet, so he knew Jay didn’t miss. Owen looked down at Tiana who stared at him wide-eyed with tears in her eyes.
Tiana and Owen looked behind them to see David standing there in shock. He held his stomach as blood gushed from his hands, between fingers. He looked down at his bleeding stomach and collapsed to the ground.
“DAVID?!” Tiana screamed. Owen quickly moved off of Tiana as she scrambled to her feet and ran towards David. “DAVID?! DAVID!” she screamed. She touched his stomach and got his blood on her hands.
“T-Tiana...” David choked out as his mouth filled with blood.
“No! No! No!” she screamed. “CALL THE POLICE! CALL 911!” Owen’s mouth parted in shock as he quickly pulled out his cellphone to call the ambulance. He looked around to see that Jay was nowhere to be found.
Tiana tried to hold up David’s head as more blood spilled from his mouth. “No, David, please! Stay with me, okay? Just stay with me! Please!”
Owen sat next to Tiana in the hospital’s waiting room. They had been there for 3 hours already, and that was on top of the hour they spent being detained by the police. Owen called Tyler and Jason to let them know what happened. They both freaked out, threatening to come get them. It took much arguing for Owen to convince them to stay where they were. Tiana was in too fragile a state and needed a minute until they could confirm that David was going to live.
It was one of the few times Owen heard Jason say David’s actual name. Owen rubbed soothing circles on Tiana’s back as she leaned on her elbows, still sobbing into her hands. He didn’t know what to say. There was nothing he could say.
Tiana felt anguish rip through her body. She checked her phone repetitively and saw texts from David that she had missed.
David🤓: I know you can’t see us together, and even though it hurts... I’m okay with that. I’d rather have you as a friend than not at all. But… you looked so distraught last time you were here, Tiana. Is everything okay? Please talk to me.
David🤓: I know I’m a bit of a worrywart, but I just want to make sure you’re alright. I’m so worried about you. At least tell me you’re okay. If you need me, I’m here.
David🤓: It’s been hours since I’ve heard from you, and I’m starting to freak out! I’m coming to check up on you. It’s killing me to think about how you left here. Whatever you’re going through, I don’t want you to suffer alone. I care about you too much.
Tears fell from her eyes and onto her phone. She hated herself. Hated that she hadn’t seen these texts earlier. Hated that her involvement with him led to him being shot. Hated that she had caused pain to someone who didn’t deserve it.
And then there was Owen.
She wanted to be happy to finally learn the truth. But instead, she was angry. Infuriated.
They both looked at the entrance of the waiting room to see a nurse standing there. They quickly got up and walked over to her. “How is he?” Tiana asked frantically. “Is he okay?”
“He’s in stable condition,” the nurse said. “But... he lost a lot of blood... the trauma has put him in a coma.”
“Oh my god!” Tiana blurted in shock. She covered her mouth as she turned to Owen. Owen quickly wrapped her in his arms as she cried into his shoulder.
“Can... can we see him?” Owen asked.
“His friend is in there right now. As long as you make it quick,” the nurse said.
“T...” Owen said, trying to pull Tiana off of him. Tiana looked at him through tears that blurred her vision. “Come on,” he said, grabbing her hand. Her hand was cold and trembled in his grasp as he led her to the hospital room. Tiana stepped inside and saw Miles sitting in a chair with his head in his hands. She looked at David lying in the hospital bed. Pale, weak, but peacefully asleep. The beep of the monitor was the only sound she heard.
Miles saw Owen and Tiana walk in and sucked his teeth. “Just what the fuck are you doing here?” he said coldly. “Aren’t you the reason he got shot?!”
“M-Miles...” Tiana choked out.
“He’s in a fucking coma!” Miles snapped. Tiana took a step back as she felt her heart throb in pain.
“Hey!” Owen said with warning as he stood protectively in front of Tiana. “Just relax, alright? It wasn’t on purpose. We didn’t even know he was there.”
Miles’ jaw tensed as he looked from Tiana to Owen before looking back at David. “What kind of shit are you guys involved in that would lead to him getting shot?” Miles asked, annoyed. “He could have fucking died!”
Tiana looked at Owen who sighed remorsefully. “Crazy ex... couldn’t handle rejection...”
Miles scoffed as he looked at Tiana. “Irony of ironies. Ain’t that a bitch.” Tiana felt herself getting smaller. She had a feeling Miles’ unfriendly glare had less to do with David getting shot and more to do with her turning him down. He blamed her. She had no words to defend herself. She felt awful.
“He’s an idiot,” Miles said. “I told him he was an idiot, and the son of a bitch never fucking listens to me.” Tiana leaned against the wall watching Miles as he ran his fingers through his hair. “He told me about how you dumped his sorry ass,” Miles said, looking at her. Tiana tried to swallow down the hard lump of guilt stuck in her throat. “But like the loser he is, he was too concerned. He said you were upset about something and needed comfort. He’s too fucking soft,” Miles muttered.
Miles nibbled on his thumb as he looked at his friend. “He was so worried about you that he wanted to check up on you and headed to your apartment. I was on the phone with him trying to talk him out of being such a fucking pussy when he told me he heard someone arguing in a parking lot. The idiot thinks he’s the Flash or some shit. The gunshots were the last thing I heard...”
Tiana couldn’t even stop the tears from falling from her eyes again as she looked at David. “I’m so sorry, Miles,” she said, squeezing Owen’s hand in anguish. “I’m truly... truly sorry.”
Miles shook his head as he leaned over and touched David’s pale, lifeless one. “David and I are like night and day... But we’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. I’ve always thought he was a bit too soft... He tends to wear his heart on his sleeve. He makes himself... vulnerable...”
Miles looked at Tiana, and she anxiously bit her lip. “A couple of years ago, David was driving to his mom’s house. He made a wrong turn and hit someone with his car,” Miles explained. “The girl he hit suffered so many damages, she became crippled... lost both of her legs.” Tiana blinked at Miles in shock. “It devastated him,” Miles said. “Even worse, the girl couldn’t afford proper healthcare. Our great country, right? She was in fucking debt just for being rushed to the emergency room.”
Tiana’s shoulders fell as she looked at David. “She was David’s first patient,” Miles continued. “The whole reason he went so hard for prosthetics. She couldn’t afford them... so David made them for her. Since then, that’s been his whole life...” Owen felt Tiana squeeze his hand again, and even he had a newfound respect for the man he had only known to dislike.
“David suffers from chronic depression,” Miles said finally. “He’s had it ever since I’ve known him. He doesn’t let a lot of people in. And that car accident seemed to only worsen it. He frequently called himself a monster because of it. I know we usually can’t stand each other’s guts, but... I’m usually the only one reminding him he’s not. Even if I have to make fun of him for it a little because that’s the only way I know how. I thought at least with you, that might change... considering you’re the first girl he actually seemed to like...” Miles was looking at Tiana when he said this and it only made her feel worse.
“I’m not asking you to be his girlfriend or some shit,” Miles said. “But at least his friend... He needs it...”
Tiana nodded. “That goes without question,” she choked out. The three of them sat in silence for a long time before the nurse came in to ask them to leave. “Do you know when he’ll wake up?” Tiana asked.
The nurse shook her head. “It’s uncertain, I’m afraid...”
“Just go,” Miles said, lowering his head in defeat. “I’ll text you if there’s any change... Right now... I need to give his parents some really bad fucking news...”
Tiana pinched her lips as Owen pulled her outside. She looked back at Miles who covered his face as he stared at David.
“Excuse me! You can’t be in here!”
“This is like the 5th house we’ve checked, Jason,” Tyler muttered as he leaned back against the wall.
“5th time’s the charm,” Jason said, winding up his bat.
“I don’t think that’s how that goes,” Tyler said, rolling his eyes.
“Excuse me?! Did you hear what I said?”
“Okay, look. If he’s not in here, we’ll just check that other house and call it a day,” Jason said, tapping his bat against his shoes.
“You said that last time,” Tyler sighed. “We should have just used my T-47 tracker.”
“I thought you were still working out the kinks,” Jason inquired.
“No, I finished it like weeks ago,” Tyler said, annoyed.
“Oh, sick!” Jason said, raising his bat.
Tyler and Jason looked at the older woman in her fluffy robe and slippers. She held her little chihuahua as she stood a few feet down the hall of the apartment building they had broken into. “YOU’RE TRESPASSING!” she shouted at them.
“Relax, lady. We’ll only be a second,” Jason said. He raised his foot and kicked down the door of one of the apartments.
“I’m calling the cops!” she screamed.
“Go ahead. We’ll be gone before they get here,” Tyler said flippantly as he followed Jason inside. Jason stormed the apartment, swinging his bat like a madman. His shoulders fell when he realized no one was inside. “What the fuck did I say,” Tyler said annoyed. “There’s no one here!”
“No fucking shit! What else are you gonna tell me, Ty? That the sky is fucking blue?!” Jason snapped at him. Jason groaned in frustration as he leaned against the wall and banged the back of his head against the brick. He and Tyler had been looking for Jay for nearly 2 hours after Owen told them what happened. “I can’t believe that son of a bitch pulled a gun on our woman,” Jason muttered. “Just wanna fuck his shit up.”
Tyler shook his head in frustration. “Fucking coward ran off like the little bitch he is. I swear if he had hurt her...” Tyler heard Jason squeak and glanced at him to see Jason looking at him with big sappy blue eyes. “Why are you looking at me like that?” Tyler snapped, annoyed.
“I just can’t wait to hear you finally admit that you love her,” Jason smirked.
“Shut the fuck up, Jason.”
“She’s gonna melt that ice-cold heart of yours,” Jason teased. “It’s about time, cause I’m tired of you being such a moody ass prick. I told you she’d be good for us.”
Tyler rolled his eyes. “Has she even agreed to be... ours?”
Jason blinked at him. “I mean yea... Don’t you remember earlier?”
“What I remember is her shaking like a goddamn leaf because she thought we were about to tag-team her-” Tyler started.
“Which we were,” Jason interrupted.
“Until Darren caught us,” Tyler finished.
“Until Darren...” Jason sighed. “My innocent little cockblocker... We gotta get our boy laid... or a lock for the door.”
“Focus, Jason. Shit!” Tyler said, rubbing his temples.
“Okay, no. She hasn’t verbally agreed to be ours. But she will.”
“How do you know?” Tyler asked.
“I just know,” Jason said, pointing his bat at Tyler. “And Megatron knows. Don’t question Megatron.”
“I’m not calling that thing Megatron,” Tyler said, walking outside.
“In the words of our current fine ass obsession... ’haters gone hate’,” Jason said, following him.
“Oh my god!” Tyler snapped fed up.
As they arrived back at the warehouse, Owen took his helmet off to see Tiana already storming towards the house. She was pissed. He sighed deeply and quickly followed after her.
Tiana opened the door to see that no one was home. She had received tons of texts from Jason asking if she was alright. He told her that he and Tyler left to go look for Jay. She found it sweet and was surprised to see very short texts from Tyler as well. She figured Jason must have given him her number.
She headed for her room when she heard Owen call out to her. “Tiana...”
“WHAT, OWEN?!” she shouted at him.
“Can we talk?”
“About what?! How you fucking lied to me all this damn time?! How my friend is in a fucking coma because your psychopath ex tried to kill me over something I didn’t even know about in the first place?!”
“Save it! I don’t even wanna look at you!” she growled at him as she stormed away. Owen watched her as she slammed the door shut. He huffed again, putting his helmet on the floor before he walked to the door. He leaned on it and gently knocked. “I SAID GO AWAY, OWEN!”
“...you’re in my room, T...”
There was a brief dead silence before he heard footsteps and the door swung open. He looked at her and saw tears streaming down her angry face. She left the door open and walked back into his room. Owen got the hint that despite being infuriated, she didn’t necessarily want him to leave her alone. He walked up to her as she bit her bottom lip and stared at the floor.
“You told him that… that you were in love with me,” Tiana said, avoiding his eyes. “You told him... that I owned your heart... Were you lying?” Tiana looked up at him briefly to see the sincerity and regret in his eyes.
“No, T...” he said finally. “I... am in love with you... Have been for a while...”
“...and not like a brother loves his sister?” she probed.
Owen gave an awkward smile. “Brothers don’t usually think about their sisters in the way I think about you, T...”
Tiana felt her tears brim as she let out a growl. “I should be fucking elated! But I’m pissed the hell off, Owen! Do you know how long I’ve wanted to hear you say that? Did you know that I was in love with you too?!”
“Yes,” Owen said quickly.
Tiana looked at him in shock. “Wait… you- you knew?”
“I know you better than anyone, T... yea, I knew...”
Tiana’s jaw tensed. “You are such a fucking asshole!” She turned on her heels, ready to leave when Owen quickly grabbed her arm. She instinctively slapped him in the face and pulled her hand back in shock. “I’m sorry!” she blurted. “I-”
“No,” Owen sighed. “I deserved that...”
Tiana felt her chest tighten in anguish. “This hurts, Owen. This fucking hurts. Why did you lie to me all this time?”
Owen looked down as he tried to sort out his feelings. “I wasn’t really into women much until you came along, T. I was confused. My thoughts were conflicted. And... I felt like I was betraying Dante. I promised him that I would protect you and keep you safe.”
“Did you also promise him that you wouldn’t be with me?” she choked out. “Why does my brother get to determine who I give my heart to?”
“I just didn’t think I could do both,” Owen said. “You’re such a distraction, T. You consume my mind. There’s not a moment that goes by when I’m not thinking about you.”
“Bullshit,” she snapped. Owen tilted his head to the side in confusion. “You’re a fucking liar, Owen, because you’re not thinking about me.”
“Tiana,” he said, trying to grab her.
“No,” she said, shoving him back. “Cause if you were actually thinking about me, you wouldn’t have kept this from me. You would have told me how you really felt instead of letting me think this whole fucking thing was unrequited. We’re supposed to be best friends, Owen. Do you know how hard it is to love someone thinking they’ll never love you back? Do you know how much it fucking hurt to have you curve me so damn much?”
“I didn’t mean to hurt you, T-”
“Well, you fucking did!” she snapped at him.
“Tiana,” he said, reaching for her again as he grabbed her arms. “Listen to m-”
“No, Owen!” she said, hitting his chest. “Get off of me!” She slapped him in the face again and shoved him back. But he quickly grabbed both of her wrists. “Let go of me, Owen! Fucking let me go!”
He lifted her hands above her head and pinned her to the wall as she squirmed in his grasp. Her breathing grew heavy as she looked at him with fire in her eyes. “Don’t do that. Don’t look at me like that,” she said, trying to pull her wrists from his hold. The guy was like cement as his stormy blue eyes never left her face. Owen had barely touched her, and she already felt herself melting under his gaze.
“Owen...” She whimpered helplessly, giving in to him as he leaned in and caressed her lips with his own. Tiana willingly dropped all of her defenses as she eagerly kissed him back. Her desire for him completely won out over any anger she felt. Her lips were more than welcoming to his tongue that claimed her own.
She breathed heavily against him as he kept one hand around both of her wrists while the other wrapped around her waist. Her head fell back against the wall as his lips scoured down her cheek to the side of her neck. Her thighs quivered as his lips sucked hungrily at her skin.
“I’m gonna let your hands go...” he said lowly in her ear. His lips brushed against her lobe, sending shivers along her skin. “If you hit me again... I’m restraining you.”
Tiana couldn’t tell if that was a threat or an invitation. She didn’t know what was worse: that one touch from Owen set her whole body ablaze with desire, or that he knew she was putty in his hands. He pulled her hands apart and slid them down against the wall beside her. He could feel her panting desperately against him and loved that she wanted him as badly as he wanted her.
“Come here,” he said with a head nod. She could sense the demanding cockiness in his tone, but she honestly didn’t give a damn. She eagerly leaned forward, violently smacking her lips against his and wrapping her arms around his neck. Her hands played in his hair as her body meshed against his. Her legs instinctively hiked to his waist, attempting to climb him like a tree. She never wanted to be one with someone so badly.
She felt his hands roam along her sides before he roughly grabbed her hips. Turning her around, he pressed her up against the wall again. Her soft body shivered against his as she felt his thick erection press invasively against her back. She heaved against the wall, Owen’s weight holding her imprisoned. His breath against her neck caused her to tremble as his hands made contact with her skin again.
“I’ve had dreams of touching you like this...” Owen said in her ear as his hands slipped beneath her shirt. “Did you dream about me too, baby...” Tiana wanted to melt right there and then. But she found her audacity and turned around to shove him off of her. Owen raised a brow. “What did I say about hitting me?”
“You don’t get to just claim me, Owen,” she said, trying to convince herself of her own words. “That’s not how this works. I’m still angry with you.”
“Tiana, I can see your nipples through your shirt...”
She looked at him startled and quickly covered her chest. “That’s not the point.”
Owen cocked his head to the side curiously and pressed her back against the wall again. She tried desperately to stand her ground, but the smirk on his face that further accentuated the dimples in his cheeks as his blue eyes probed her already made her weak at the knees. “Then what’s the point, T...” he said against her lips.
Tiana breathed out and pushed him back. “Work for it,” she said. “From here on out, you need to work for it. That means no more lies. No more secrets. About you. About us. I want to know everything.”
Owen put his hands in his pockets as he pondered. “...fair enough...” Relaxing slightly, she looked him over and bit her lip until she found herself frowning. “What’s with the face?” he asked.
“I really wanna kiss you again,” she blurted before she could stop herself. “Shit...”
Owen grinned. “You were just telling me to work for it...”
“Yes, but I just want you to suffer, not me,” she sighed.
He snickered as he stepped forward. “Duly noted...”
He bent down and Tiana squealed as he picked her up in his arms. He rubbed his nose against hers and felt her breath against his lips. “I hate that you have this effect on me,” she said, playing with the tuft of hair at the back of his head. “I hate that I want you so badly.”
“I know...” he said, placing her down on his bed.
“And I hate that you’re so cocky about it,” she said annoyed.
“I’m not trying to be cocky, T. I just know you,” he said, looking down at her. “I know what your favorite ice cream is. I know you like to sing Moulin Rouge show tunes in the shower. I know you’ve watched Love & Basketball more than any other movie. I can tell when you’re lying. I can tell when you’re nervous.” He slid his hand between her thick thighs. “I can tell when you’re turned on...”
Tiana sucked in her breath as he leaned down and flicked his tongue against her lips. “So yes... I can tell that you want me... just like I want you...” Tiana blinked at him and anxiously bit her lip. Owen searched her eyes as he thumbed her bottom lip. “I also know that you’re still distressed over your friend... David... which is why I’m not going to take advantage of how vulnerable you are right now...” he said, lying down next to her.
She felt a tinge of disappointment as a frown crossed her face. “Thanks... I think... Why does this feel like punishment?”
She heard him chuckle as his hand crept underneath her shirt and stroked her bare skin. “When I said I loved you, T, I meant that shit,” he said, pulling her close. “You’re my world... and I know when you’re hurting. Me fucking you isn’t going to make you feel better.” He rubbed his lips against hers as he leaned in for another kiss, but Tiana quickly pulled back.
“Shouldn’t that be for me to decide?” she asked, looking at him.
“T... I’m just looking out for y-”
“I’m sick of hearing you say that, Owen. I don’t want you to look out for me. I’ve wanted you for too damn long for you to throw that shit at me again.” Her fingers sifted underneath his shirt as she pressed her lips against his. “Yea, I’m still pissed at you, but fuck it. You know what I want? I want you to kiss me. I want you to fuck me. I want-”
He pushed her back down on the bed as his blue eyes locked onto hers. “You’re making this difficult, T...”
“I thought I was making it rather easy,” she teased. She leaned up to kiss him again but he firmly pushed her back down on the bed.
“You have no idea what you’re getting yourself into,” he said, keeping his steady eye on her. “The things I’ve thought about doing to you... I don’t wanna turn you off... scare you away.”
“I’m already turned the fuck on, O. Try me,” she smirked. Her smirk quickly fell away when she saw the sharp look in his eyes. It terrified her in the most delicious way and sent a shiver all the way down to the small bundle of nerves between her legs.
He grabbed both of her wrists and held them above her head. His eyes trailed down her form as he reveled in the vulnerability of her position. “...are you sure...?” he asked with a bit of rasp in his voice.
“Yes...” she breathed out.
He studied her face a moment longer before he lowered his mouth to her ear and caressed her with his lips. “Then don’t move... unless I tell you to move...”
Tiana felt a wave of goosebumps coat her skin. His breath tickled as his tongue dragged agonizingly slow from the back of her ear down to the side of her neck towards her cleavage. He rubbed his lips over her erect nipples poking through her shirt as his hands kept her wrists pinned to the bed. Her body shivered with anticipation as it rose to meet his. She felt his massive erection and let out a slight moan, wanting him sooner than he was willing to give.
He bit down on her nipple and she instinctively squealed. “What did I just say...” he groaned. Tiana breathed heavily, anxiously biting her lip as his hand slid beneath her shirt. “Baby, don’t make me repeat myself...” he warned.
Tiana felt her stomach flip as those words escaped his lips. She had never heard him so demanding. It shook her to her core. “You said... not to move...unless you tell me to...” she said meekly.
She could feel him grin against her stomach as he firmly gripped her waist. His tongue left a hot, wet trail down to her pelvis. “These need to come off,” he said, tugging her jeans down. He lifted her backside and glided the jeans down her thighs and over her knees. Tiana watched Owen as he looked down at her panties almost as if he were entranced. His blue eyes met hers, and she was taken back by the predatory look in his gaze.
“You’re soaking, T...”
Tiana didn’t know why these simple words were sending her into an impatient fit. She wanted him to take her so badly, but it was as if he was taking his sweet time on purpose. He tossed her jeans over his shoulder and leaned down to nestle between her legs. Tiana shivered as she felt his soft lips rub against the inside of her thigh. Her breathing hitched when she felt his nose press against her nub through her panties followed by the erotic vibration of his groan against her core.
“Fuck, you’re intoxicating...” he said, slowly licking her over her panties.
“Owen, please,” she begged. She instinctively grabbed the back of his head with her hands. But he grabbed her hands again and pinned them to the bed.
“Tiana, if you move one more goddamn time... I’m gonna make you regret it...”
She had no idea what that meant. She had no idea if she wanted to find out or not. She tried to restrain herself as she felt his fingers move the thin damp cloth to the side and lightly stroke her clit.
“Pussy doesn’t usually excite me... Most women I’ve met bore me...” Owen said as he rubbed her clit in circles, making her wetter by the second. “But yours...” She heard him let out a deep chuckle. “Yours, T... just makes me fucking hungry...”
Tiana felt the air leave her lungs as Owen flattened his tongue against her slit and slowly dragged it between her lips. “God, I fucking knew it,” he groaned as his hands firmly gripped her thighs, pulling them apart. Her hips instinctively bucked upward to meet his mouth as his tongue claimed her nub.
“Fuck!” she gasped as she instinctively grabbed his hair again. Owen abruptly pulled back from her as his mouth left her core. She opened her eyes when she realized what she did. She looked up at him, but he was already grabbing her waist and turning her on her stomach to rip her panties off of her. “Owen?” she said hesitantly.
“You seem to have a hard time listening...” Owen said, licking his bottom lip. She felt him grab her hips and push her on all fours. “Spread for me, baby...”
She could feel herself getting wetter as he widened her thighs. She jumped when she felt a harsh slap against her ass that managed to catch her puffy lips in such a way she nearly collapsed. “Oh fuck, Daddy!” she gasped.
“Tiana, baby,” he chuckled from behind her as he softly caressed her ass. “This is nothing... and you’re already calling me ‘Daddy?’ Do you want me to stop?”
She shook her head like a maniac. “No, please don’t.” She waited in anticipation before she felt the stinging sensation of his hand against her backside again. He slapped her ass again and again. She leaked down her thigh from each stimulating spank that made her pussy throb.
He smacked once more, only his fingers didn’t leave as they invaded her core. Her knees gave way and she fell to the bed. His arm wrapped around her stomach to hold her up as the other hand pumped two thick fingers into her from behind. “Owen!” she squealed.
“Do you like it when I fuck you like this, baby...” Owen groaned as he held Tiana’s backside flushed to his chest. “You like how wet Daddy makes you...” he guttered as his fingers impatiently worked at her core.
He wanted to slow down. He wanted to ease her into it. He wanted to be gentle. But his body ached for her. His hunger was winning out over his self-control. He pulled his digits from inside of her and felt her consistency between his fingers before he slipped them into his mouth and licked them clean.
Tiana couldn’t take it anymore. “Daddy, please!”
“Please ‘what’, T...” he said, firmly squeezing her ass.
“Please just fuck me!” she begged.
He slid his finger between her cheeks and caressed her lips with her juices. “You want me to fuck that sweet pussy of yours, is that it, baby?”
Tiana gasped as he thrust his fingers into her again. “Owen,” she panted.
She felt him abruptly remove his hands again. “I don’t know, T. I don’t think you’re ready for that.”
She let out a ferocious growl. “Bitch, I’ll hurt you!”
Owen chuckled as he pushed her back down on her stomach. He palmed her ass cheeks with both hands and spread her wide. Hungrily biting down on his bottom lip, he looked from her glistening cunt to her tight puckered hole.
Tiana smooshed her face into his pillow when she felt Owen plunge his tongue deep into her canal. Her thighs tensed up, and she felt him slap her ass hard before roughly squeezing them in his palms. “You don’t know what you bring out of me,” he muttered into her.
She practically humped the bed, getting her essence all over the sheets as his tongue drove her crazy. They seemed to fight with each other as she squirmed beneath him while he held her down to plunge deep inside of her again, flicking upwards. His hand slid beneath her and rubbed tantalizing circles on her clit as his tongue picked up its pace. Tiana whimpered helplessly into the pillow as her body violently shook on the bed from her orgasm.
She swore her ears were ringing. She barely had a second to catch her breath when she felt Owen’s tongue slide from her cunt up to her rosette. He wiggled his tongue inside and she squealed hysterically. She scrambled up the bed, nearly falling off the edge. Breathing heavily, he quickly sat up and stared at him wide-eyed.
“...guessing you’re not ready for that yet...” he said, wiping his mouth.
“I’m really not!” she panted, trying to catch her breath. “Shit, Owen!”
She immediately saw his demeanor shift. He rubbed the back of his neck as his cheeks flushed a bit. “Was it too much? Did I freak you out?”
“No, I...” she hesitated to speak, trying to find her words. “It’s like you turn into a completely different person, Owen...”
“I’ll try to slow it down,” he said, standing up to sit down next to her. He looked down at her thighs, still wet from his tongue assault. He gently caressed them before roughly squeezing them in his grasp. “Shit...” he muttered, removing his hand. “This is what I was afraid of... I have this... insatiable hunger when it comes to you, T. I thought it was bad before. But now... fuck. It’s like I have no control...”
Tiana grabbed his chin and turned him to face her. “It’s different, but... I like it, Owen,” she tried to reassure him. “I want this. I want you. You and all of your... freakish little kinks.”
“You say that now,” he smirked.
Tiana scooted next to him and put her hand to his chest. “I’m willing to learn if you’re willing to teach.”
Owen looked at her seriously and slid his hand between her thighs. “Are you willing to go past your comfort zone...?”
“As long as it’s with you, I don’t care,” she said, leaning into him. “I trust you...”
Owen smiled as he possessively cupped her wet core, making her gasp into his mouth.
