41 - Bury Me Low
Tyler’s knee bobbed frantically as he sat down in the chair in the waiting room. He pulled anxiously at his fingers and rabidly chewed his bottom lip. Waiting for Tiana and Gabrielle to finish up allowed him far too much time to stress… and reflect. On everything that happened. Everything that... was going to happen.
The guys had slept overnight when Gabrielle insisted that Tiana stay a while for her to give a proper full analysis of her condition and prescribe medication to stave off effects. Chris Richardson had offered to set them up in a nearby 5-star hotel, but the guys insisted on sleeping in the waiting room. The chairs were uncomfortable, but at least they were with their girl.
They took every opportunity to spend time with her before Gabrielle was kicking them out of the room to let her sleep. Charlie Richardson had food delivered to them and Michael Beaumont even sent one of his workers to bring them back a new pair of expensive clothes. It was clearly evident that these wealthy Sons of the Elite were either very thankful to them... or feeling very guilty for their predicament.
Tyler looked up when he heard Owen’s voice and saw him talking to Michael. They seemed to be having an important conversation. He shook his head and heard his phone beep before he quickly pulled it from his pocket.
Leo: Hey, man, I’ve been tryna reach you. Heard about all the shit that went down in NY. Call me. I’m worried.
Tyler furrowed his brow. He could definitely use a friend right now. But he wasn’t sure he was ready to relive the horror so soon.
“How you holding up?”
Tyler glanced to the side and saw Chris take a seat next to him. Being this close to the infamous Blue Kaiser allowed Tyler to take in his full size. The man was tall and muscular. His dark brown beard looked as perfectly coiffed as his long hair that bounced around his head. His sharp blue eyes living up to his persona, if not for the kindness that shone through them.
Tyler averted his gaze and looked down as he shrugged. “I don’t know... I just... this doesn’t feel real...” He bit his lip as his eyes flickered. “What did you guys do with the bodies?”
Chris sighed as he leaned back in the chair. “That’s not something you need to worry about.”
Tyler furrowed his brow and shook his head as if the realization started to hit him. “We killed a lot of people... didn’t we..?”
Chris waved it off. “You did what you had to do to get your woman back. We don’t fault you for that.” Chris saw the frown on Tyler’s face, indicating that wasn’t enough. “Look, kid. I get it,” Chris said, leaning over. “I was younger than you when I had my first kill, and-”
“I was 15 when I split my father’s head open like a melon,” Tyler muttered.
Chris blinked at Tyler surprised. “Well, shit...”
Tyler covered his face with a groan. “Look, in any case,” Chris continued. “I know it’s hard to cope with something like this. For my brother and me, we... only really had each other to deal with that shit. But my wife is a doctor and a big proponent of therapy-”
“I can’t talk to a fucking therapist about how I killed a bunch of people,” Tyler groaned.
Chris chuckled. “Yea, that’s kinda what I told her. But still... it’s worth a shot. And even if you don’t then, you know... you can always talk to me.”
Tyler looked over at Chris and caught the small smile on his face. “Really?”
“Sure,” Chris said. “Or me, or Michael, or Charlie... Well, maybe not Charlie. Actually, he’s not so bad once you get a beer or two in him.” Tyler chuckled softly, and Chris smiled for finally eliciting an expression other than sorrow on Tyler’s face. “If there’s one thing you and I have in common,” Chris said, putting his hand on Tyler’s shoulder. “It’s how fiercely we love our woman. I have a lot of respect for you, Tyler. Not a lot of people would have done what you guys did.”
“...thanks, Chris,” Tyler said.
“How often do we need to bring her back for check-ups?” Owen asked as he approached Tyler and Chris with Michael.
“Once a week,” Michael said, handing Owen a piece of paper.
“Once a week?!” Jason blurted, sitting down across from Tyler. “Jeezus...”
“It’s not that bad, J...” Owen said.
“It’s not like we have that much time with her as-” Jason stopped himself, unable to finish his sentence. He dug his fingers into his hair and lowered his head. He felt a heavy hand on his shoulder and looked up at Charlie who gave him a regretful look of remorse.
“Here,” Charlie said, handing Jason a small bottle of nips.
“Thanks...” Jason muttered. He quickly grabbed the bottle and downed it in one go.
“Liquor for breakfast,” Michael scoffed. “Wonderful, Charles. Just wonderful. You’re a stellar role model.”
“It’s fucking noon. Back off,” Charlie snapped.
“Michael,” Owen interrupted. “What happened to David? Did you find his body?”
“We’re handling that,” Chris said.
“No,” Jason said quickly. “That’s not fucking good enough. We need to know that he’s gone for good. Especially since Charlie told me Miles’ crazy ass is still alive.”
“WHAT?!” Tyler and Owen blurted.
Chris and Michael gave Charlie a dirty look. “I honestly thought they already knew,” Charlie shrugged. “My bad.” Chris groaned as he covered his face in frustration.
“Okay, hell motherfucking no,” Tyler said, standing to his feet. “How is he still alive? Why? You have to kill him-”
“We can’t just do that,” Michael said. “He’s in the hands of the authorities right now-”
“Bullshit! You guys are fucking Sons of the Elite!” Owen snapped. “You’ve got whole governments eating out of your hands, and you’re telling me you can’t get rid of this psychopath?!”
“I need you guys to calm down,” Chris said. “I know it’s upsetting. But I’m telling you that we’re handling it. You and Tiana are safe. You’ll never have to worry about them again.”
“What good that shit does us now! She’s already fucking dying!” Tyler snapped. A still silence filled the air, absorbing Tyler’s words when Michael’s radio went off.
“Michael? Tiana is nearly done with her therapy session, but she’s starving and refuses to have any of this hospital food. She asked if one of the guys can pick her up an ice cream cone and waffle fries,” came Gabrielle’s voice.
Owen gave a pathetic chuckle as a tear slipped down his cheek.
“Same old, T...”
“Oh my gosh! Look at this cutie! He looks just like Chris!”
“I know. It’s uncanny,” Gabrielle grinned. She looked over her phone that Tiana was holding in her hand. “He’s also the most well-behaved of my three,” she sighed.
“You’re kidding,” Tiana said, scrolling to the next picture. “This small bundle of blonde curls looks like an angel.”
“That small bundle of blonde curls is as bad as his father. CJ is going to end up on the FBI’s Most Wanted list at this rate,” Gabrielle snickered.
Tiana threw her head back laughing. “Damn, bro.” She scrolled to the next picture and a huge smile painted her face. “The only girl huh?”
“That’s Penny,” Gabrielle smiled. “She handles being the only girl pretty well. Bit of an artist that one. Just wish she didn’t try her art out on my furniture.”
“That’s so freaking cute,” Tiana grinned. “She’s beautiful, Gabby. Just like you and Michael.”
“Thanks, Tiana...” Gabrielle smiled. Both women looked up when they heard the door open and saw a brown-skinned woman with long black hair walk through the door holding a clipboard.
“Sorry about that,” Cassandra said, taking a seat near the hospital bed. She tucked her phone into her pocket. “Hope I wasn’t too long.”
“It’s all good. Gabby was just showing me her little badass kids,” Tiana smirked.
“Excuse me!” Gabrielle laughed.
“Oh, sis, you haven’t seen anything till you’ve seen those kids in action,” Cassandra winked.
“CASS!” Gabrielle laughed. “Wow! I feel so attacked!”
“You know I love you, Gabby,” Cassandra winked at her. Gabrielle rolled her eyes as she settled back in her seat. “So,” Cassandra said, sitting on the chair next to Tiana’s bed. “Tiana, per your request, I’m just going to continue recording this session. Are you positive that’s something you want to do?” Tiana nodded without saying a word.
“Okay,” Cassandra said, turning on the voice recorder. “This is Dr. Cassandra Joy, and I am Tiana Morris’s personal psychiatrist. We are continuing the first session of Tiana’s therapy post-recovery of her treatment. Also joining me is Tiana’s personal physician, Dr. Gabrielle Beaumont-Richardson. Tiana, are you okay to continue?”
“Yes,” Tiana breathed out. The three women sat for another 45 minutes. Cassandra allowed Tiana a safe space to speak as she helped her to work through her trauma. Every so often they would pause whenever Tiana broke out into tears. Gabrielle couldn’t help but wrap her patient in her arms and comfort her, as her own tears cascaded as well.
Gabrielle wanted to support Tiana the whole time but couldn’t deny how raw the experience was for her. It particularly hurt her when Tiana asked if her husbands looked at her differently after her own sexual assault. For it was something Gabrielle was still griping with herself, even after all these years.
“I think we’re good for today,” Cassandra said, putting her things away. “Tiana, I’m going to prescribe something to help with the night sweats. It should also help you sleep better at night.”
“Thank you so much... for everything,” Tiana said gratefully. She raised her arms and Cassandra looked at her surprised. She smiled and took Tiana into her arms, hugging her tightly.
“Thanks, Cass,” Gabrielle smiled as Cassandra pulled back. “Let’s get dinner some time.”
“I’d love that,” Cassandra said. “I’ll see you, beautiful ladies, later.”
Gabrielle waited for Cassandra to leave before she looked back at Tiana. “We’ll have regular check-ups,” she said, writing on a piece of paper. “Once a week.”
“Jeez, that’s a lot,” Tiana laughed.
“Well, don’t worry, because one of those times you visit, you’ll be able to see your mother.”
Tiana’s eyes bulged as she looked at Gabrielle with shock. “Seriously?!”
“I’ve been treating her, and she’s on a quick road to recovery. You’ll be able to see her soon.”
“That’s incredible!” Tiana’s head hit the pillow as she stared at the ceiling in disbelief. Suddenly her smile faded and she abruptly looked at Gabrielle. “Before I die right? I’ll be able to see her before then?”
Gabrielle felt her chest tighten and quickly nodded. “Yes, of course, Tiana...” Tiana let out a quick breath as she looked at the ceiling again. She felt Gabrielle slide her hand against her own and lock their fingers together. Tiana glanced at her and saw raw emotion brimming in the doctor’s eyes.
“I promise I’ll be with you the whole time,” Gabrielle said. “I’m not just your doctor or... your boss even, Tiana. I’m your friend. And if I can change your condition, please know I’ll do everything in my power to do so.”
Tiana gave Gabrielle a sincere smile and could tell this was wreaking havoc on the doctor’s heart. “Come here, you,” Tiana said, motioning with her hands. The two women embraced as they reveled in each other’s warmth.
There was a low murmur in the waiting room as all six men anxiously waited for the women to finally emerge. They immediately ceased speaking when they heard the door open, and Tiana’s voice rang out.
“GOD! I’M SO HUNGRY!”
Owen chuckled as he used a crutch to walk over to her with a bag of fries. “Hey, baby girl,” he said softly. He looked down at her sitting in a wheelchair.
Tiana looked up at him and smiled. “Hey, O...” She looked at the bag of fries in his hand. “OH MY GOD! FEED ME! I’M STARVING!”
“No shame, this one,” Chris smirked as he watched Tiana snatch the bag from Owen and stuff fries into her mouth.
“WHERE’S THE ICE CREAM?!” she said with a mouth full of fries.
“Jason almost ate it,” Tyler said, walking towards her with the cone.
“JASON!” Tiana snapped at him.
Jason raised his hands in surrender. “Ty and his damn lies!” Jason laughed.
Tiana grabbed the cone from Tyler and smiled up at him when she caught a rather disturbing look on his face. “Tyler?” she said.
“You should eat, Tiana,” Tyler said quickly. She furrowed her brow and started licking her ice cream. Tyler watched her and shifted uncomfortably before he turned around. “I... need to take a piss.” Tiana watched him walk off with confusion plastered on her face while Owen groaned in frustration.
“There’s a car outside to take you all home,” Michael said to Owen. “It’s wheelchair-friendly.”
“Nah, bruh,” Tiana said. “There is no way I’m staying in this damn wheelchair.”
“Tiana, you’re really weak,” Gabrielle said quickly.
Then give me a senzu bean or some shit,” Tiana laughed. But she hardly got a chuckle out of anyone. “Wow, okay, tough crowd. Just give me some caffeine and I’ll be fine.”
“You can’t have any caffeine after the medication you just took,” Gabrielle said. “It will ruin your stomach.”
“Ugh!” Tiana groaned, letting her head fall back.
“It’s fine, baby. I’ll just carry you,” Jason said, approaching her. He crouched down in front of her. “Get on.”
“I really don’t think-” Gabrielle started, but Charlie quickly shushed her.
“Just... let them handle it, babe,” Charlie said to her. Gabrielle frowned with worry as she watched Jason carry Tiana on his back. Her face was full of concern until she heard Tiana giggle happily as Jason headed outside.
“Thank you for everything,” Owen said, turning to Gabrielle. “We’ll... see you soon, I guess.”
Owen looked at Tyler who rushed towards him and wrapped an arm around his waist to help steady him. The brothers nodded at the Sons of the Elite before heading outside.
Gabrielle let out a sob as she quickly covered her face. “Darling,” Michael said, pulling his wife into his arms.
“This feels so hopeless,” Gabrielle sobbed into Michael’s shoulder. “She doesn’t deserve this.”
“You did everything you could, love,” Michael said, trying to comfort her.
“You can’t beat yourself up over this, Gabs,” Chris added. “If anything... be strong for her. She clearly looks up to you.”
Gabrielle swallowed hard as she wiped the tears from her face. “You’re right... You’re right. I can’t keep breaking down like this in front of her,” Gabrielle said, trying to catch her breath.
Charlie frowned seeing his wife so distraught. He heard his phone go off and answered an incoming video call. “You good, Roy?” he asked.
Roy, Gabrielle’s personal bodyguard, could be seen on the screen drinking a cup of coffee as the sound of children’s laughter echoed in the background. “Brilliant. Your children miss you, however,” Roy said.
“We’ll be home soon enough. Just cleaning up this mess in New York,” Charlie said. “How did CJ do with the last new babysitter?”
“Yeah... about that... She walked out three days ago. She’s suing you guys for physical damages and emotional trauma and distress.”
“Goddamn,” Charlie groaned.
The ride home was eerily silent as none of her men said much of anything to Tiana. Every time she asked how they were doing, the most she got out of them was a ‘fine’ or ‘better.’
She cuddled up between Tyler and Owen in the car. But despite Tyler’s hand on her thigh and Owen’s fingers laced with hers, they still felt distant... tense. Even when she leaned in to kiss Tyler, and he responded with a kiss of his own, she felt as if he wasn’t in the kiss at all as his lips merely brushed against hers. His hand was hesitant to touch her.
Her face nuzzled the crook of Jason’s neck as he carried her bridal style into their loft. She had missed his scent, and as her fingers tightly clutched his shoulders. But he was quick to set her down on the couch. She looked up at him confused as he anxiously ran his fingers through his hair. “Are you thirsty?” he asked. “Do you need water?”
“No, Jason, I-” she started.
“I’ll get you some water,” he said, quickly walking to the kitchen. Tiana deeply exhaled as she sat down on the couch and looked at the messy living room. Newspapers, notebooks, laptops, and cords were scattered everywhere.
“We didn’t have time to clean up.”
She looked up at Tyler who was looking at the mess with a frown. “Before... before Jason and I left to come and... get you guys,” he finished.
“It’s okay,” Tiana said reassuringly. She tried to give Tyler a smile, but he only averted his gaze. She twisted her mouth and looked back at the mess. She saw a picture of David on the table and leaned over to pick it up.
“Tiana,” Owen said tensely as he watched her. She analyzed David’s handsome face that showed all perfect teeth with the same charming smile he had lured her in with.
“I love you, Tiana… You know that, right?”
His words echoed in her mind like a haunting whisper. She absentmindedly touched her neck that was still bruised from when he choked her.
“If you had just listened to me, this would be so much easier for the both of us...”
A tear slipped down Tiana’s face as she started hyperventilating. “T?” Owen said, hobbling toward her on his crutch. “T!”
Jason rushed to her and got down on his knees in front of her. “Baby?! Baby, are you okay?”
Tiana looked at the three of them and opened her mouth to speak. “I... I’m sorry I lost the necklace you gave me,” she choked out. Tyler’s jaw tensed in anger as he noted the bruising along her neck where the necklace used to be.
“It’s okay, baby. We’ll get you another one,” Owen said, trying to hold back a sob. From the moment he woke up, the only thing he could think about was how this was all his fault. He couldn’t help but blame himself for what happened and it ate away at him.
“I’m sorry,” Tiana said again. The three of them looked at her confused. “I’m sorry about David. I’m sorry that I cheated-”
“Tiana, stop,” Tyler said firmly. “You did not cheat. You were raped.” The words felt disgusting and violent leaving Tyler’s lips. His stomach dropped from the emotions those words pulled out of him. He immediately turned around and left the room before anyone could say anything else. Tears brimmed in Tiana’s eyes when Tyler left. But Jason quickly grabbed her hand.
“Please don’t,” Jason pleaded. “Don’t cry, baby girl. Please don’t fucking cry. This wasn’t your fault. None of this was your fault. We love you, okay? We fucking love you.” He stood to his feet and leaned over her. Grabbing her face between his hands, he fervently kissed her.
Tiana breathed heavily, trying to catch her breath once Jason finally freed her lips. She felt Owen grab her hand and raise it to his lips as he kissed it over and over again. “If anyone should be sorry, it’s me,” Owen said. “I should have been there. I should have done more to protect you, and I-... I’m a fucking idiot. For trusting him. After what he did to you, I can’t even-”
“Owen, it’s okay. Don’t blame yourself,” she said, squeezing his hand. “You did save me. Multiple times. I love you so much.” Owen felt his heart swell as a flood of sadness and love overwhelmed him. Violent flashes of David raping her still plagued his mind. It only stoked raging anger in him that he had severe difficulty trying to quell.
“You know what? I’m still hungry,” Tiana said, trying to lighten the mood. “I could go for a burger right now. Tyler? Tyler!” Tyler stepped out from the foyer and looked at her. She could see his eyes were inflamed from crying and seething with anger. “You wanna get burgers?” she asked, trying to ignore the look in his gaze.
Tyler glanced at Jason and Owen who gave him a knowing look. “... sure, babe,” Tyler said reluctantly. “Let’s get... burgers.”
Jason seemed far too eager to offer to pick up the burgers, which confused Tiana since they could have just used Seamless or Grubhub. She had to argue with her guys to let her move on her own and stop treating her like an elderly woman who needed a cane to walk. She may have moved slow, but she could at least move on her own.
Tyler had carried her to her bedroom and insisted that she get some rest as was recommended by her doctor. But Tiana felt anything but tired. The moment Tyler and Owen left her room, she grabbed a pencil and a notepad and started jotting down notes.
“What about this one?” Owen asked, showing Tyler a picture on his phone.
“It’s nice,” Tyler said without looking at it.
“Ty, seriously,” Owen said. “This is supposed to be from all of us, remem-”
“What’s the fucking point, Owen?!” Tyler snapped.
Owen and Tyler looked up to see Tiana at the foot of the stairs. “Tiana, why didn’t you tell me you wanted to come down? I could have carried you,” Tyler said annoyed.
“Relax, big guy. I’m fine,” she chuckled as she walked towards the couch. “I wanna show you guys something.” The brothers moved over, allowing her to sit between them. She opened up her notebook. “Tada!” she beamed.
“...what is it?” Owen asked.
“It’s my bucket list!” she said. “You know, I was today year’s old when I realized ‘bucket list’ referred to before you kicked the bucket,” she laughed. “Lawd, jeezus, help me!” Owen tried to chuckle, but Tyler seemed blatantly irritated by her jokes. “Okay,” she said, noting their awkwardness. “Take a look and tell me what you guys think.”
Owen sighed in frustration when Tyler averted his eyes. Owen instead grabbed the notebook from her. “Music festival… Beyoncé concert... see the Grand Canyon... see the Pyramids… these are... these sound great, T,” Owen said. His brow furrowed, wondering how possible these were within the small time frame they had.
“Thanks!” Tiana smiled. “I’ve always wanted to see some of the great wonders of the world, ya know?” She glanced over at Tyler whose brows were furrowed in concentration. “Ty?” He quickly looked up at her, and she moved herself to sit on his lap. He wrapped his arms around her and caressed her hip with his fingertips. “What do you think?” she asked, caressing his lips with hers.
“Whatever you want, babe...” he said lowly.
Tiana pulled back and looked at him with concern. “...Tyler...”
“Burgers are here,” Jason said, bursting through the door.
Owen and Tyler had straightened up the living room, allowing them all to gather around the table and indulge in the burgers. Tiana seemed to be the only chatty one. “Mm, these burgers were so good. I can’t remember the last time I had a good burger,” Tiana said, rolling up the wrapper. “Thank you, Jason.”
“You’re welcome, baby girl,” Jason smiled at her.
She grinned and leaned forward, pressing her lips against his. “I missed kissing you so much, Daddy...” she moaned. She wrapped her arms around Jason’s neck and felt his hands gently caress her skin. But that’s about as much as he did. His kiss was soft, lacking the intense passion she was so used to getting from him. She tried to intensify their kiss, but he pulled back slightly.
Tiana sucked her teeth and abruptly pulled back from him. “Seriously?!” she blurted. The three of them looked at her startled. “What is wrong with you guys?!” she said annoyed. “I’m the one dying here!”
“Tiana, don’t talk like that-” Owen started.
“I’ll talk any way I want,” she snapped. “You guys are treating me like I’m some… fragile piece of glass, and I can’t... I can’t take it!” She stood to her feet and moved from the couch.
“Baby-” Jason started.
“You won’t touch me or kiss me like you used to,” she said, throwing her arms up. “I mean, what the hell? I don’t want to spend my last days like this! Ugh! I just-” Tiana abruptly covered her mouth as she started coughing violently into her hand. Her chest felt like it was caving in as she coughed hard.
“Tiana!” Tyler said frantically. All three of them quickly got up to help her, but she held out her hand for them to stay where they were. She pulled her hand from her mouth and saw blood splattered on her palm. Her stomach dropped. It was the first visible sign of her condition.
And all of a sudden… this felt that much more real...
“T,” Owen said desperately.
“J-just... just leave me alone,” she croaked as she ran back up the stairs to her room.
Tiana lay on her bed, texting Shae. Her best friend had been so worried about her. She could practically feel Shae’s relief through the phone now that Tiana was finally showing signs of life. Shae was ready to rush over any second to see her, but Joey had insisted to give her a day or two to rest. Tiana understood, but... she desperately missed her best friend.
She looked up when she heard the door to her room slide open and saw her three lovers file inside. Taking a deep breath, she looked back at her phone. “I told you guys I wanted to be alone...” she muttered.
“We didn’t finish going over your bucket list,” Owen said, taking out the piece of paper and sitting on the bed next to her. She felt the other side of the bed dip before Jason ripped her phone out of her hands.
“Jason! I was texting, Shae,” she said annoyed.
“You can text later,” Jason said, tossing her phone to the side. “You’ve got too many clothes on, beautiful. Aren’t you hot?”
Tiana smirked as Jason unbuckled her pants and tugged them down her legs. “Getting there...” she breathed out. Jason lay down on the bed, settling between her legs. She looked up and saw Tyler crawl on the bed behind her. He wrapped his hands around her waist and pulled her back between his legs.
“Anything take priority on this list?” Owen asked. He gently ran his fingers up her thigh before he started playing with the waistband of her panties.
“Probably Beyoncé,” Jason smirked. His lips peppered her leg with kisses from her calve up to her thigh.
“You know me so well,” she chuckled. She looked down and saw Tyler’s fingers tugging the hem of her shirt. His hands sneaked beneath her shirt, and his brows raised with intrigue when he felt her bare breasts.
“No bra?” Tyler asked.
“It uh… it didn’t make it through the debacle...” she chuckled nervously. Tyler’s jaw tensed at the implication when Owen interrupted his thoughts.
“Who’s complaining,” Owen said, slipping his fingers beneath her panties.
“Lift your arms, baby,” Tyler said softly in her ear. She raised her arms as Tyler lifted her shirt over her head and tossed it onto the floor. His large hands cupped both breasts and she let out a groan. He firmly massaged them as his thumbs ran over her nipples.
Her panties were the next item to go. Jason hooked his teeth over the waistband and dragged them down her legs. She arched her back and gasped as Owen’s fingers invaded her heaven, slipping between her lips. “So wet, baby,” Owen groaned as his fingers played with her clit.
“What happened to the bucket list?” she panted.
“Oh right,” Owen grinned. He used one hand to hold up the list while the other played with her pussy. “Grand Canyon?” Owen smirked. “You sure your slow, lazy ass can handle that?”
“Excuse you, hoe!” Tiana blurted as they laughed. “I can handle it, alright?! Don’t underestimate this black girl magic, boy!”
“Definitely not,” Jason groaned as he ran his tongue along the inside of her thigh. “I’m trying to get a taste of it instead.” Tiana let out a quick, abrupt gasp as Jason widened her legs and plunged his tongue deep into her apex.
“Now that’s that fucking sound I missed,” Owen grinned. Leaning over, he grabbed Tiana’s chin as he continued to play with her clit. “Did you miss it too, baby girl? Did you miss us playing with this wet pussy?”
Tiana didn’t have a second to respond before Owen’s tongue was slipping into her mouth to claim her tongue. Tyler’s grip on her mounds became rougher as he kissed along the side of her neck. “Dammit, she tastes so fucking good,” Jason groaned as his tongue lashed against her core. “Fuck, baby, I’ve missed you.”
Tiana’s thighs clenched as she instinctively wrapped them around Jason’s neck. She raised her hips to meet Owen’s probing fingers. “Oh! Oh!” she gasped as she felt her climax rising.
“There she is,” Owen said, taking her bottom lip between his teeth. “There’s our girl. Come for us, baby. Come for Daddy.”
Her head fell back against Tyler’s chest, and she let out a desperate cry the moment her orgasm hit her. Her thighs trembled as Jason never let up his tongue fucking her into submission. She had but a second to regain composure before the guys were re-positioning themselves.
“I need to fuck her. Goddamn, I need to fuck my baby,” Jason groaned. He flipped her on her stomach so that she was lying on top of Tyler.
She looked into Tyler’s deep brown eyes and could see there was still a bit of concern on his face. “Is this okay?” Tyler asked softly.
Tiana nodded with a smile. “Just don’t go easy on me,” she smirked. “You know how I like it, Daddy...”
“...oh fuck...” Tyler groaned completely turned on by her demand. He grabbed her hips and slid further down the bed. “J, you heard what she said?” Tyler said to Jason as he released himself from his pants.
“No, what?” Jason asked, grabbing the lube and massaging it into Tiana’s rosette. She let out a quick breath as his thumb slipped right in.
“She said she wants us to fuck the shit out of her,” Tyler said, keeping his eyes on Tiana. He rubbed his head dripping with precum against her slit and caught the way she teasingly bit her bottom lip as she held his gaze. “And I’ll be damned if I don’t give her what she wants.”
“Oh that’s my fucking girl,” Jason grinned as he slapped her ass.
“Okay wait, wait,” Owen said as he leaned back against the chair watching them. “Just cause she says she wants it rough doesn’t give you guys license to break her.”
“Oh please fucking break me,” she giggled teasingly.
“The lady has spoken,” Jason grinned.
“Jason!” Owen snapped.
“Alright! Alright! Goddamn,” Jason muttered as he slowly inched himself into her tight hole. Tiana gasped breathlessly as she felt Jason completely fill her up. It had been a minute since she felt him and fuck did she miss it.
“Look at me, baby.”
Tiana looked down and held Tyler’s gaze as he completely filled her up. She winced when she felt their hands grab her waist and hips and start pumping into her.
Owen wasn’t necessarily turned on by what was happening in front of him. Perhaps it was because he was concerned about Tiana’s safety. He still felt it was too soon to be so rough with her body. Or perhaps… it was because it reminded him of how helpless he was watching David rape her. Powerless to do anything to save her. To protect her from him.
Owen looked away as he fought the tears in his eyes. The images of Tiana’s abuse haunted him and tore at him, adding on to the burden of guilt he already felt. But, his shoulders relaxed as the soothing sound of her whimpers of ecstasy caressed his ears, ridding him of the sobs and screams that plagued his mind. He slowly turned to look at her and realized her face was more peaceful than he had ever seen it. With the three of them is where she needed to be. And the last thing he wanted was to deny her not only what she needed but what she desired.
Tiana’s moans rang out in the room. A melody that all three men desperately missed. Her moans of pleasure. Her groans of delight. Her arousal permeated the room as the slapping of skin against skin echoed around them. “Fuck, baby girl, I’ve missed this,” Jason groaned as his fingers dug into her waist. He rhythmically slammed into her over and over again. “I’ve missed you so fucking much...”
He tried to hide it, but Tiana could still hear the brokenness in Jason’s voice. It reflected in his strokes. She felt it in his shallow breathing. The way his fingers desperately held her as if he were afraid to let her go. She swallowed the lump in her throat and tried to get lost in the love they made.
Tyler kept his eyes on Tiana as he fought hard to keep his own orgasm down. Despite how much he was enjoying himself, a part of him still ached. The thought that very soon he wouldn’t be able to see her like this... touch her like this... was tormenting him.
The pain was unbearable.
But Tiana’s face was twisted up in ecstasy as she bit her bottom lip. “Oh god, I’m coming!” she breathed out. “I’m coming-” Her voice rang out in the air as her body quivered, and she met her release. She realized her stamina was not quite what it used to be as Jason and Tyler were purely holding her up on their own. She heard them both groan before Tyler quickly pulled out and Jason thrust himself forward, coming deep in her ass.
Tiana collapsed on top of Tyler, trying to catch her breath. As he wrapped her up in his arms, she nuzzled his face with hers. But then, she felt wetness against his cheek. She quickly pulled back and looked at him with a mix of confusion and concern. “Tyler?”
Tyler quickly wiped his face and tried to muster a smile. “Hey, baby. You okay?” he croaked. Tiana furrowed her brows as she saw the tears he tried to wipe away. He gently pushed her off and stood from the bed. “I’ll get a towel,” Tyler said, avoiding looking at her.
Tiana watched Tyler leave when Jason pushed her on her back and kissed her passionately. Wrapping her arms around his neck, her fingers played in his hair as his tongue wrestled with hers. “I fucking love you, it hurts,” Jason breathed against her lips. “Why the fuck does this hurt so much?”
Tiana felt a wave of emotions overwhelm her. Her men had made love to her, but they were still very much in distress. Jason crawled off of her as Tyler came back to clean her off. “Did we hurt you? Are you okay?” Tyler asked apprehensively.
“Yea, I’m fine-” she started.
“Let’s get her some water,” Jason said, grabbing Tyler’s shoulder. “Just sit tight, baby girl.”
Tiana looked on dumbfounded as Tyler and Jason abandoned her. She glanced over at Owen who had watched them leave as well before his blue eyes found hers. “Did I do something wrong?” she asked.
Owen shook his head with an ironic chuckle. “No, babe...”
“Then why did they just leave like that?” she asked as she stood from the bed. Owen gave her a forlorn look as he patted his lap. “Are you sure? Aren’t you crippled,” she teased.
“Get your fine ass over here,” he smirked. Tiana walked over to Owen and sat down on his lap. He wrapped his hands around her naked waist as she leaned against him. She could feel him breathing heavily. His cologne filled her nostrils and eased her anxiety as she waited for him to finally speak.
“We thought we lost you, T...” he said softly. Tiana frowned as she clutched Owen tighter. “And the thought of not having you anymore... it...”
Tiana felt Owen’s tears fall on her forehead. He couldn’t finish his sentence. She quickly turned to look at him and grabbed his face between her hands. “I’m here, baby. I’m here now,” she said before she smothered his lips with hers. “Please, just... enjoy me now...”
Owen watched Tiana as she slipped her hand into his pants and pulled out his erect manhood. “They just wore the shit out of you, baby. You need to rest-” Owen protested.
“I want you, okay?” she said, standing up in all her naked glory. She locked eyes with him, showing her resolve. He held her gaze for just a moment before he subtly nodded. She gently lowered herself onto his shaft as she straddled his lap. “Just make love to me, Owen... please...” She wrapped her arms around his neck as she rocked her hips against his. “Make me yours again...”
Owen searched her eyes and could tell she was trying to hide her pain. A behavior she had learned out of survival. A habit that he had been trying to break her out of so that she could truly feel free to be vulnerable with him. He firmly gripped her hips as he held her gaze. Lifting his hips, he thrust deep inside of her. Tiana’s lips parted and a gasp left her mouth as she kept her eyes on her lover.
Owen watched her facial expressions as he picked up his pace, memorizing every detail of her face. “Owen, don’t look at me like that,” she pleaded.
A tear slipped from Tiana’s eye. “...like it’s the last time...”
Owen swallowed down a sob as he grabbed the back of her neck and slammed his lips against hers. Tiana breathed into his mouth as she rode him like a horse. The chair moved beneath them to the rhythm of their love-making.
Tiana fucked Owen like it was her first time.
Owen fucked Tiana like it was his last.
He gripped the back of her head and kissed her fervently as he struggled to keep his orgasm down. He soon felt her body tense up as she again met her release and gasped against his ear. He climaxed seconds after her, just barely able to hold on. He felt her body relax against him as he rubbed soothing circles on her back.
“I never once doubted you, Owen,” she said softly. She closed her eyes and started to drift to sleep on his shoulder. “Not you. Not Jason. Not Tyler. Not once…”
Owen struggled to hold back his tears as he kissed the top of Tiana’s head.
“...I know, baby...”
