“You excited about Cal Tech tomorrow?” he asked turning off the TV. He pulled her into his lap. Cradling her like a baby, he held her close.
“A little. I wish you would come with me Daddy,” she pouted slightly.
“You need to make this decision on your own. That said I do want you to follow some rules.”
“What Sir?” she asked excited by his instructions. They would help her navigate the day.
“You need to smile at everyone you meet. You must talk to at least one person.”
“I do?” she said swallowing her anxiety down. “What if nobody wants to talk to me?”
“You need to start up a conversation with someone.”
“I don’t know Daddy …”
“I know you can. And you will or suffer the consequences.” He grabbed her ass and squeezed. “So I expect you to do as I say.”
“Yes Sir,” she said demurely, liking the little jolt of pleasure she felt at his rough handling of her.
“You are supposed to return to Boston on Saturday.” He saw the way she grew sad when he mentioned her leaving. “Do you want to stay longer? Like for the summer?”
He chuckled seeing her eyes light up at his suggestion. She returned his smile.
“May I Daddy?” she said timidly.
“If you want to.”
“I do,” she gushed eagerly. “I do, I do.”
“Ok baby girl,” he said happy with her enthusiasm. “I want you to stay with me too. I’ll call mom and dad tonight and let them know what’s up.”
“Do you think they’ll be mad?”
“Maybe,” he sighed. “I’m going to tell them about our relationship.”
Emma sat up suddenly. “You can’t!” she exclaimed. “They can’t know about how we – are. Please Chris don’t tell them.”
“I’m not going to go into the details. They don’t need that but they do need to know that we are more than brother and sister.”
“They won’t let me come home ever again.”
“They’ll understand Emma,” he reassured her, tucking her long black hair behind her ear. “I suspect they’ll even be happy for us.”
“Really? I can’t imagine …”
He pulled her back to cradle her again. “Suck my thumb baby girl,” he ordered running it across her lips. She readily opened her mouth to him and took in his thumb like a pacifier. Every time she pulled on him, she felt a corresponding pull in her cunt.
“Emma I need you to believe in us,” he said seriously. “Things are going to get tough before they get better. As people find out about us, they are going to try and pull us apart. We have to be strong in our connection with each other. Our trust in one another has to be unbreakable.”
She nodded her head, her eyes wide with nervousness and trust. She should be terrified by his words but being cradled by him, sucking on his thumb was so comforting to her. He would take care of her. All she had to do was believe in him and them.
Surely she could do that?
