Chapter 57

Eloise slept the entire trip home on the plane, she’d used Marcus’ shoulder as her pillow. She knew he had slept too, because when they landed, he was blinking the sleep from his eyes.

“Are you okay to drive?” she asked when they made it to his truck.

“Yes, I slept the trip home so I would be awake enough to drive us home safely. You were right about the snow, it doesn’t even look like it snowed around here,” he added and she laughed. Virginia was notorious for getting snow and less than a week later the weather warmed up and the snow melted.

“What is our plan for New Year’s?” she asked. He took her hand as he drove them home.

“I was going to send out a mass email to the men who work for me. I invite everyone and those who don’t have plans come over to hang out.”

“Do you mind if I invite Roxie, Xander, Rhett, Josie and Evelyn?”

“Of course not, I want you to feel comfortable inviting people over to our home.” He kissed the knuckles on the hand he held. A jolt of desire swept over her body. Connecting eyes, she could see he wanted her just as much as she wanted him.

“How fast can you get us home?” she wanted to know.

“Do I need to stay within the speed limit?” He gave her a sneaky smile and she laughed shaking her head.

“As long as we don’t get pulled over, I promise not to look at the speedometer.” She pretended to cover her eyes with her free hand and was rewarded with a deep chuckle.

“Then I can get us home in about an hour,” he promised and true to his word an hour later they were pulling up to his house. Eloise sighed and sat back to take a look at her new home, she knew this was right, being with Marcus was what she was meant to do. He was her one true mate and she couldn’t wait to marry him and start a family.

“You okay?” She could hear the concern in his voice, turning to look at him she gave him a soft smile.

“Just thinking about how right this feels. We are home, this is our home,” she shared, he broke out into a huge grin.

“Come on.” He turned off the truck and she followed him out. He grabbed their bags and motioned for her to lead the way to their door. She paused at the front door and shrieked when he swept her up into his arms.

“I am going to carry you over the threshold as my future bride.”

“Who am I to argue with tradition?” she asked laughing loudly. She wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed a loud smacking kiss to his cheek. She typed in the lock code for him and turned the knob to the door. He pushed the door the rest of the way open with his foot and stepped into their home. He put her down on her feet and she surveyed her new home, it was just as they had left it, neat and it hit her how masculine it looked.

“You can change things if you want,” he told her and she smiled.

“Could you see it on my face?”

“Yes, but I also have gotten to know you and this is not your style,” he commented and she shrugged. Her style had always been what she could afford from a second hand store.

“We will go furniture shopping whenever you want,” he offered and she laughed.

“There is no rush, I don’t want to take over your home. Yes, we are going to be sharing it, but it doesn’t feel right turning the place into something I want it to be without your input.” She knew she wouldn’t be changing much about the home, just adding a few feminine touches such as pillows and some candles. He smiled and setting their bags by the door stalked over to her until they were standing toe to toe. She looked up at him and felt a shiver of desire race through her body. She wanted him and wanted him immediately. She wrapped her arms around his neck and tilted her head up for him to kiss her. He took the hint and lowered his head to capture her lips in a sweet unhurried kiss. Parting her lips, she let his tongue sweep in to tangle with hers. His bear rumbled in his chest and she smiled into the kiss. She loved knowing she made him and his bear happy.

“I need you,” she whispered when he released her lips. His eyes darkened and he scooped her up in his arms striding quickly through their home and up to their bedroom. He dropped her onto the bed where she bounced gently. Leaning on her elbows she watched as Marcus stripped off his shirt and pants. Clad only in his boxer briefs he crawled up the bed until she was caged underneath his chest and strong arms. A shiver crawled up her spine when his predator eyes caught hers. She could feel the desire coming off him in waves. Wanting nothing more than to feel his heated skin against hers, she quickly divested herself of her clothes and reached for him.

Their mouths met in a clash of tongues and flaming flesh, Eloise couldn’t get enough of her mate. Using a new found strength she pushed him onto his back and straddled his strong thighs. She caught the look of surprise on his face right before she set to leaving a string of hickies starting at his neck and working her way down his chiseled chest. She paused at his flat nipples, slipping one into her mouth she rolled it with her tongue. His chest sucked in and she bit down drawing a moan from his lips.

“Eloise,” his voice grumbled above her, she looked up to see him watching her intently. Smiling she ran her tongue down between each defined line of his abs. She could see his muscles quaking as she scraped her teeth down to the waistband of his boxers.

“You like that?” she murmured against his pale skin, she loved the contrast of her caramel skin against his milk white.

“Very much, I am trying hard to keep myself from grabbing you. I want to see where you take this,” he replied, his hands were clenched in the bedsheets and his jaw clamped tight. She gave a soft laugh and slipped a finger along the waistband of his boxers. Running her finger back and forth she slowly began the task of taking them off of his body. She rarely got the chance to go slowly with him, their love making in Texas had been a little more hurried for fear of interruptions from well meaning family members. Pulling she unwrapped him as if he were a present just for her. When the boxers were halfway down his thighs, she revealed his cock, it stood at attention the veins bulging, skin bright red. Gently she stroked her finger up the side gaining a groan as his head fell into the pillows.

“You look ready to burst,” she commented and he only moaned when her hand wrapped around his shaft. Smirking she pumped her hand up and down, she left his boxers wrapped around his thighs to keep him contained. Leaning down she teased him by flicking her tongue against the tip and stroking from base to top.

“Eloise,” he moaned and she slipped the engorged head into her mouth, swirling her tongue around and dipping into the slit on top. His hips bucked, but with the boxers around his thighs he couldn’t spread his legs further. Dipping her head, she took him until she felt him touch the back of her mouth. Looking up with her eyes she saw the tension in his body as he held back his orgasm. Spurred on she wrapped her hand around the base of his cock and pumped what she couldn’t fit into her mouth.

“Baby,” Marcus growled and settled one hand in her hair, she let him help her move up and down on his cock making it slick with her spit. Using her teeth she scraped up the sides of his cock earning her a jerking of his hips forcing his cock deep into her throat. Pulling her head back she smirked as his breathing became labored.

“You keep that up and I am going to spill my seed like a horny teenage boy,” he remarked and she let out a laugh.

“I like knowing I can wield that kind of power over you. It makes me feel desirable,” she admitted and he gave her a soft smile.

“You are always desirable to me, I am in a constant state of lust for you,” he replied reaching out for her. She crawled up his legs leaving tiny kisses until she caught his lips in a mind bending kiss. The world spun and she was laying on her back Marcus looming over her. She reached up with one hand and cupped his cheek, he had two days’ worth of growth on his face making her skin ticklish.

“I love you,” she told him and kissed him softly.

“I love you Eloise, from the moment I saw you at the club you’ve been it for me. I cannot wait for the day you become my wife.” Eloise felt her heart melt all over again for her big bear. He was everything she needed and wanted in her life. With him she knew her future would be bright. Wrapping her arms around his neck, her sensitive nipples brushed against his crisp chest hair sending a bolt of desire straight to her womb.

“Take me,” she whispered and watched as his eyes darkened and widened. She knew that meant he was on the brink of losing control to his bear and wrapped her legs around his waist. His cock brushed her pussy making her even wetter.

“With pleasure,” he rumbled against her neck and nipped leaving a dark red hickey on one breast. One hand slipped down her waist and two thick fingers slipped into her pussy. Instantly her muscles tightened around the digits. Moaning she arched her back making him go deeper until his fingers brushed the very core of her.

“Marcus!” she gasped, his mouth took one nipple sucking it until it tightened into a bud, his fingers pumping a steady rhythm, slowly building her to an orgasm. His mouth moved across her chest and using his teeth he bit down on her unattended nipple. Pleasure coursed through her veins making her skin burn. Moving her hips she tried to increase his speed, he shook his head and pinned her hips down with one tree trunk leg.

“Patience my love,” he whispered, his warm breath caressing her skin. She growled in frustration, he was moving too slow.

“Please,” she begged and he chuckled kissing down to her pussy lips. His tongue darted in to press against her clit and Eloise was forced to gripped the sheets to keep her hips from bucking him off.

“Delicious,” he murmured and using his whole mouth he sucked and scraped his teeth pushing her closer to her orgasm. Sucking and fondling her clit he pushed her ever closer to what she wanted. Her skin sizzled and it was dotted with sweat as he brought her to her first orgasm of the night. Her vision went dark, her muscles tensed until a wave of pure bliss rushed over her body. She arched her back and let a scream render the air as the pleasure exploded inside of her. Collapsing back onto the bed she took deep steadying breaths. Marcus sucked the two fingers he’d had inside of her.

“That was so hot,” she whispered and he chuckled.

“Just wait,” he warned and settled himself over her body. Lifting her legs up he settled her thighs on his hips and thrust deep. His cock slid into her in one smooth glide, every inch he entered her she felt even more full. His cock felt thicker and longer than ever before and soon he was pressed to the hilt inside of her. The hip pushing against her womb, he rocked back and forth a subtle movement which sent shocks through her already tense body. Instantly her body sought its release, a rough moan pushed through her lips.

“Move please,” she begged and Marcus caught her mouth for a heated kiss thrusting in and out of her pussy. He built up to a rapid pace, her arms wrapped around his neck holding on for dear life. She needed him to be less delicate with her, she could sense he was holding back on her account.

“I won’t break,” she complained. Without a word, Marcus flipped her onto her hands and knees, never leaving her pussy. He gripped her hips and thrust, stretched taut she moaned, her head falling forward and her eyes closing. She let the sensations of his cock thrusting into her pussy be her sole focus.

“I love this ass,” Marcus said right before his hand left a stinging smack on her left cheek followed by one on her left.

“Oh!” Pleasure spread through her stinging ass cheeks settling deep within her.

“You like that? You like when I smack your ass?” He hit her again and she jerked forward, her orgasm rushed upon her as a roar sounded in her ears. She screamed as her pussy fluttered around his cock, pumping scalding hot seed deep within her. Tremors continued to pass through her body for some time as she lay on her stomach trying to recover. Their love making had felt different tonight, a sense of urgency and love had passed between them. Eloise knew this was the calm before the storm known as William would hit their lives.

“Are you okay?” Marcus asked twenty minutes later, he was wrapped around her body holding her close.

“Yes, just worrying about William and praying everything will end soon,” she confided and he pulled her even closer. Placing a gentle kiss to her forehead he rubbed her back.

“I am going to do everything possible to keep William from disrupting our lives further. I love you and cannot wait for the family we are going to have one day. Cody and I are going to meet tomorrow to discuss plans going forward now that we are home.”

“Are you going to the station?” she asked, her fingers were making patterns on his chest.

“Yes, Cody can’t leave the station for long as sheriff,” he explained and she nodded stifling a large yawn.

“How long are you going to be gone?” Her eyes felt heavy with sleep.

“Only a few hours, I’ll be back by lunch. Go to bed and tomorrow you can start to plan our New Year’s Eve party.” His voice sounded distant as sleep claimed her.
