Chapter 42

Evelyn pulled the wrapping paper off and caught sight of the corner of a painting. It was set in a forest, and pausing she looked up at him.

“Anderson is this?” she asked and watched him nod. It was the painting by Evan Matthews that she had admired. Tearing the rest of the paper off, she gasped. It was the painting she’d wanted. It had a fairy sitting in the middle of a forest, she was surrounded by a purple aura and a tiger lay with its head in her lap.

“How did you know?” she asked, looking up at him through blurry eyes.

“How could I not think of you when I saw this? It symbolizes us,” he told her, and she couldn’t hold in her love for him any longer. She set the painting off to the side and dove into Anderson’s arms.

“You are the most amazing man. I don’t deserve you,” she cried, placing kisses all over his face. He laughed in her arms and caught her lips in a passionate kiss.

“Evelyn you deserve the world. I am going to spend the rest of my life showing you just how much you deserve,” he promised and kissed her again. Hunger exploded inside of her. She needed Anderson now. Reaching out, she pulled hard and heard his buttons pop. Gasping she looked down to see his shirt hanging in two, all the buttons gone.

“I’m sorry,” she whispered, and Anderson let out a roar.

“Don’t be sorry, that was the hottest thing I’ve ever seen. Come here.” He pulled her back into his lap and captured her lips again. Slipping her hands into his shirt, she ran her fingers over his sculpted abs.

“Anderson,” she begged hoping he would get the hint. To her delight, he ripped her dress off the same way she’d ripped his shirt open.

“Take me,” she demanded and shivered when he let loose a growl. She kissed him pushing her tongue into his mouth. Anderson quickly pushed his tongue against hers pushing her into submission. He lay down on the rug on the floor pulling her with him. She sat on top pulling off her clothes staying in her bra and underwear. He was still in his pants, he’d discarded his destroyed shirt. Looking down at her mate she felt a warmth surround her heart. She loved this man and couldn’t wait to have their baby.

“Evvy?” he called and she caught his eyes giving him a small smile.

“Just admiring what is mine,” she replied and his tiger purred.

“Take it all in, I’m not going anywhere.” He winked at her and she laughed. Bending over she tried to kiss him but her stomach got in the way. Huffing she glared when he laughed.

“I got you, baby,” he laughed and leaned up to capture her lips in a fiery kiss. No more words were needed, she only needed his skin pressed against hers. Hands flew as the rest of their clothing was discarded and she sunk her throbbing pussy on his thick shaft. Tingles spread through her body. Anderson’s hands gripped her hips and helped guide her up and down slowly. Putting her hands on his chest she pushed up and down squeezing her core around his cock.

“Evvy,” he moaned, his head falling back onto the floor, pumping his hips with her movements. Evelyn felt the tightness in her core burst and lost the ability to continue to move up and down. Quickly Anderson flipped her onto her hands and knees entering her from behind. They’d read a book on safe sex while pregnant. She praised the gods that they’d read the book or Anderson would have stopped touching her once she popped.

“Don’t stop,” she begged, dropping her head between her shoulders.

“You are so tight, I can feel you sucking in my dick.” He bent over her body, his hands fondling her breasts. His fingers twisted her tight nipples adding friction to his movements. Evelyn felt her core tighten pushing towards another orgasm. Anderson thrust into her continuing to massage her sensitive breasts. She gripped the carpet letting the sensations of his warm body over hers wash over her. His thrusts increased in speed and filled her to the brim. She felt him bottom out when his sack hit her clit sending lightning through her veins. Anderson’s lips found the mark on the back of her neck and he bit gently causing her to burn with desire for him.

Leaning down on her elbows she arched her back making his cock slam into her pleasure spot. With a few more well-placed thrusts she shattered, her pussy latched onto his cock wrapped around him painfully.

“Evvy!” he growled and pulled out with effort and slammed back in once more before hitting his orgasm and spilling his seed deep within her. Carefully she shifted to her side sitting and leaning back on her hands. She watched Anderson lay on the floor, his chest heaving, sweat glistening off his body. She lay down next to him and placed her head on his shoulder. His strong arm wrapped around her body and pulled her close to him.

“That was so fucking hot,” he murmured against her temple. Looking up she placed a gentle kiss on his lips and closed her eyes. His hand ran up and down her bare back sending goosebumps over her body.

“I’m glad we read that book,” she whispered and he chuckled, sending vibrations through her.

“Want to try out the massages too?” he asked and she perked her head up and looked at him.


“Yes, I am sure your body is sore. Come on, into the bed and I’ll rub you.” He slapped her ass and she squeaked, sitting up slowly. Anderson beat her to his feet and reached down to help her get up. Taking her hand he led her into their bedroom and proceeded to give her a body melting massage.

The following morning Evelyn awoke for the first time without pain in her back. The massage Anderson had given her was still working and she smiled. Looking over her shoulder Anderson was still fast asleep. She got up and went into the kitchen to start making breakfast. They needed to leave soon, but she wasn’t interested in eating fast food for breakfast. Most of the fast-food places breakfast gave her nasty heartburn. Throwing together an egg and cheese biscuit she made four sausage egg and cheese biscuits for Anderson and wrapped them up. She bent over to get out the Ziploc bags when warm hands gripped her hips.

“What are you doing?” Anderson’s voice was gravelly laced with sleep.

“Getting breakfast put together before we leave for my parents,” she replied, turning around in his arms and placing a kiss on his lips.

“How did I get so lucky? Why don’t you get in a shower and I’ll clean up the dishes?” he offered returning the kiss and pushing her toward their room.

“Thank you, baby,” she replied and went to take a warm shower. She took the time to think about her parents and family. They would be thrilled to know she let Anderson mate her, but he hadn’t proposed yet. She wondered if he was waiting until she was no longer pregnant to ask. She knew in her heart she would say yes, he’d proven his love for her. She dressed and grabbed her suitcase along with the bag of all the presents she’d bought her family.

“Leave that by the door and I’ll take it down. I’m going to hop in the shower and then we can leave,” Anderson told her, giving her a kiss on the temple. Leaning into his body she rested her head against his chest for a moment.

“Everything okay?” he asked tilting her hand up to have her look at him.

“Yes, just enjoying your warmth,” she replied rubbing her nose against his bare chest. His tiger purred and she smiled.

“I love you,” he told her and kissed her before heading into the shower. She contemplated joining him but knew it would already make them later than they were already. Sitting on the couch she pulled out her phone and shot off a text to her mom letting her know they would be leaving in thirty minutes.

Just make sure you are here by four.

We will do our best Mom.

That is all I ask. Drive safe!

Leaning back against the couch cushions Evelyn closed her eyes and fell asleep until Anderson woke her up.

“Time to go, my love.” He picked her up and was about to carry her down to his car.

“Put me down. I can walk,” she argued and to her surprise he did.

“I don’t want to drop you and if you wiggle while we go down the stairs it could happen,” he admitted and she smiled at him.

“Let’s go to South Carolina.”

Let me know your thoughts! We are getting close to the end of the story.
