Chapter Six: Broom Closets Can Be Fun

“I don’t know about this shirt, Shar.” Josiah said as he walked out of the changing room, then froze when he saw the men had found them.

“Fuck.” Gerald mumbled when he saw his mate.

Josiah blushed when he heard Gerald.

Gerald walked over to Josiah and looked him from head to toe. “You are so hot; I want to push you back into that changing room and fuck you.”

Josiah’s blush deepened as the others chuckled.

“What’s wrong with the shirt?” Shar asked as she moved away from Dustin to move over to Josiah.

He shrugged. “I don’t know.”

The shirt was plain black and was tight against his firm body. It showed off every muscle and he looked so hot in it. Proof from what his mate had just said to him.

“It looks good.” Gerald said as he moved closer to his mate.

Josiah smiled at him.

“And these jeans, holy hell.” Gerald said as he paused behind his mate. “Okay, we’re going into the changing room.” He said as he took hold of Josiah’s arm.

The others laughed and Shar pulled Josiah away from Gerald.

“We’re not getting kicked out of here before we get to buy this shit.” She said with a laugh.

Shar looked at Josiah’s ass and knew why Gerald was almost hyperventilating. Josiah had a very nice ass, and the jeans were showing it off to perfection.

“Let’s pay and go out for lunch.” Dustin said as he watched his mate with the new member of their family.

“Okay.” Shar said with a smile.

“Wait, shoes.” Pearl said as she held up the two pairs of shoes they’d picked out.

“Right.” Shar said with a nod.

They measured Josiah’s feet and discovered his right foot was a little bigger than his left, so they found the size for that foot. Once they picked everything up and paid for it, they were outside with bags and growling bellies.

They went to a restaurant and every female eye in the place trained in on the ten men, who were indeed, hotter than sin.

“What’s next?” Daryl asked as he ate his lunch.

“We meet up with Raj’s cousin, then return to the hotel to lay out the plan.” Pearl said, then picked up a fry and popped it into her mouth.

“Maybe we can visit the casino while we wait.” Shar said.

Dustin looked at her. “You looking forward to losing money?” He asked with a chuckle.

She shrugged. “Or winning money.”

He pulled her against him and kissed her.

“The casino does sound fun, I mean, we’re in Las Vegas!” Lyvia said excitedly.

“Right.” The twins said in unison.

“Okay, we’ll hit the casino after our meeting.” Pearl said with a smile.


Gerald and Josiah walked into the large suite, their friends had rented, hand in hand, both grinning from ear to ear.

“I see you took care of things.” Sharissa said with a chuckle when she saw them.

Josiah’s cheeks turned a bright red and Gerald chuckled as he kissed his mate’s burning cheek.

“It’s okay.” Dustin said as he moved to stand behind his mate. “It’s something we all do.” He said, then kissed Shar’s cheek as it also turned a bright red.

Josiah and Shar smiled at each other. They both knew they were lucky.

“Hey everyone!” Raj hollered as he entered the suite. “This is my cousin, Mara. Mara, this is everyone.” Raj said with a grin as he introduced his cousin.

“Mara!” Lyvia said excitedly as she jumped to her feet and collided with her mate’s cousin.

Mara grinned as she hugged Lyvia. “Hey, Lyv.”

Everyone introduced themselves to Mara; since Raj hadn’t given any names. The Kraftman brothers, Mara knows well, but their mates and new friends…

“So good to meet you all.” Mara said with a smile.

“Okay.” Pearl said as she moved to the center of the room. “We have some things to discuss.”

Raj walked his cousin to the couch and sat beside her, Lyvia on his other side.

They discussed how they were going to take the next Dark Witch and Wizard establishment down, and when. Then she told them about the few she’d discovered outside of Vegas.

“Does this mean we have time for the casinos?” Mara asked, excitement in her eyes.

“Yes.” Pearl said with an exaggerated sigh, then smiled at the others.

“Hey, is Alec going to join us?” Dustin asked Raj as they all headed for the door.

“You invited that asshat?” Mara asked with a groan.

“You know Alec?” Dylan asked as he turned to Mara.

Mara nodded. “Yeah, I know the dickhead, he cheats.”

“Now Mara, there’s no proof of that.” Raj said with a gleam in his eyes. He knows his friend does indeed cheat, but only because he likes to rile Mara.

Mara snorted. “He does, and you know it!”

“What does he cheat at?” Sharissa asked.

“Street Hockey.” Raj and Mara said at the same time.

“Cool.” Dustin said as they walked down the hall towards the elevators. “Can we come to the next game?”

“We invited you all last time.” Raj said.

“We had a client.” Daryl said with a smile. “We’d love to come to the next one.”

“Sure.” Raj said with a shrug.

“I’d love to have someone on my side for once.” Mara said with a pout.

“Don’t worry.” Shar said as she placed her arm over Mara’s shoulder. “Girls stick together. Right?”

Mara grinned. “Right.”

“If we see any cheating, we’ll be the first to call him on it.” Lyvia said as she laid her arm over Mara’s shoulders from the other side.

“Right.” The twins said with grins.

“Great.” Dustin said with a grunt. “Your cousin has turned our mates against us.”

Shar stuck her tongue out at her husband.

“Promises, Promises.” He said with a grin.

“Not all of our mates.” Gerald said with a grin as he placed his arm over Josiah’s shoulders.

Josiah’s cheeks turned a bright red as he pulled away from Gerald to move over to the girls. “Sorry, Mafilio.” He said with a shy smile. “But I’m on the girl’s side, I hate cheaters, that’s how most of the men won their fights…” He stopped talking as he looked away from his mate.

Gerald grumbled as he pulled his mate to him and stopped in the middle of the hall.

“Don’t be embarrassed to talk about what happened to you, Mafilio. I am here for you, no matter what. And if you want to side with the girls, I won’t stop you.”

Josiah smiled at his mate. “I appreciate that.” He said, then kissed him.

Gerald groaned as his hands went straight for his mate’s ass and pulled him closer. Josiah moaned when he felt the bulge in his mate’s pants.

“I think we’ll leave those two, for now, they’ll catch up.” Dustin said with a chuckle as he pulled Sharissa towards the elevators.

“Yeah.” Lyvia said as she watched the two new mated couple making out. She couldn’t help but stare.

“Come along.” Raj said with a chuckle as he pulled his mate down the hall.

“I think we’re alone now.” Gerald said, his voice gruff with desire.

Josiah grinned. “Do you know how corny that is?”

“Ah, so you do know music.” Gerald said with a grin.

Josiah nodded. “I know some, didn’t get to really listen to it the past ten years, but I do like me some good ol’ oldies.”

“God.” Gerald grumbled. “It’s so hard to think of eighties music as oldies.”

Josiah smiled. “I was thinking more of the original.”

Gerald chuckled. “My kind of guy.” He said, then kissed him again.

Josiah sighed as he kissed him back. “We should probably catch up with the others.”

Gerald looked across the hall for them and grinned. “We know where they’re going.” He said as he began backing Josiah up towards the door across from them.

“Gerald?” He asked, his eyebrows arched.

Gerald grinned as he reached behind Josiah and turned the knob. Locked. He twisted a bit harder and broke the lock, then pushed his mate into the room and closed it behind him. He twisted the knob so no one could open the door, then turned to his mate.

“A broom closet?” Josiah asked as he looked around at the mop, broom and cleaning supplies.

Gerald grinned. “At least it’s clean.”

Josiah chuckled.

“Come here.” Gerald said as he pulled his mate to him.

“Are you sure we won’t get caught?” Josiah asked as he moved into his mate’s arms.

“I’m sure, even if we would, does it matter?”

Josiah felt his cheeks heat. “Not really.”

Gerald kissed him and everything around them disappeared. All Josiah heard, felt or saw was his big, sexy as hell, mate.

“God, you turn me on just by smiling.” Gerald said, then spun Josiah around to face the door. “I could fuck you day in and day out.”

“Yes.” Josiah panted. “Please.” He begged.

Gerald groaned. “Only because you begged.” He said, then reached in front of Josiah and unfastened his pants, then pulled them down to his knees along with his boxers.

Gerald’s breathing became shallow as he looked at his mate’s sexy ass.

“Fuck me.” Josiah begged, his ass sticking out towards his mate.

Gerald chuckled. “Impatient, are we?”

Josiah only groaned.

Gerald slid his finger in between Josiah’s ass cheeks and found him ready and wet.

“Fuck.” Gerald groaned. “I’ve never felt an ass so wet before.”

Josiah looked back at him, panting. “I think it’s a Fated Mate thing. I never came from my ass until you.”

Gerald grinned. “Hmm, I like being your first.”

Josiah cried out when Gerald’s finger entered his ass. “Please.” He begged again.

Gerald quickly unfastened his pants and pulled out his cock, then pressed it between Josiah’s ass cheeks. “What do you want?” He asked.

“You to fuck me.” Josiah said with a groan.

“Your wish is my command.” Gerald said, then pushed forward and entered heaven. “Fucking hell.” He moaned as his mate’s ass clenched around his cock.

“Fuck.” Josiah grunted.

“Ready?” Gerald asked as he leaned forward and took hold of Josiah’s hands. Their wrists touching.

“Yes.” Josiah breathed.

Gerald grinned, then began moving. “Fuck, you’re so hot and tight.”

Josiah groaned. “Harder.”

Gerald obliged, and soon they were slamming against the door, fucking so hard they were grunting, and Josiah whimpered.

“You are so incredible.” Gerald said as he continued to pump in and out of his mate.

“You feel incredible inside me.” Josiah said with a heavy pant.

“Fuck.” Gerald groaned as he moved his hands from Josiah’s and took hold of his hips. “You can jack off if you want.”

Josiah’s right hand slid down his body to his hard cock and he began sliding his palm up and down the shaft.

“Fuck, yeah.” Gerald said, his breathing coming in shallower and shallower. “I love the fact you do that.”

“I know.” Josiah said as he turned his head to his mate with a wicked grin.

Gerald shook his head. “God, I love you.”

They both froze.

Too soon, too soon! Gerald yelled at himself. It has only been a couple of days.

“I…I love you too.” Josiah whispered and Gerald felt his cock twitch.

“I know it’s soon.” Gerald said as he leaned forward and kissed Josiah’s ear. “But I feel as though I’ve always loved you.”

Josiah smiled. “According to the Goddesses, you have.”

Gerald chuckled.

“I think I’ve loved you from the moment I saw you hollering at me that I belong to you.” Josiah said as he pushed back with his ass, which made Gerald groan.

“You’re mine.” Gerald said with a growl, then started fucking him again.

“Yes.” Josiah said. “I am yours, no one else…oh, fuck!” His hand went back to his cock and he beat it hard as his mate fucked him. When he felt his ass tighten around Gerald’s cock, his own cock spurted cum all over the door.

“Fucking hell!” Gerald hollered as his own release spilled deep inside his mate and the knot took both their breaths away.

“Fuck, that was incredible.” Josiah said with a groan as he leaned his forehead against the door.
