Chapter Twenty-Two

Keel was holding onto his control through sheer force of will power. He was so close to losing it, that he needed to take a moment to gather his thoughts.

Violet brought out a primal side in him that he’d never felt before. It was raw, and urgent and it honestly frightened him a little.

He never wanted to hurt or scare his mate. Even though he had broken her barrier, this would still be her first time, and he would be hell sent if he didn’t make it as special for her as he could.

Moving to the bed, Keel placed a still wet Violet on top, and stepped back.

She stretched out on the large surface, her pale skin a creamy beauty on his black sheets. He had to catch his breath at the sight of her naked body on full display for him. Her eyes shone with a desire that matched his own, and that small smile on her lips told him that she was more than ready to take this next step with him.

Backing away from her, he smiled when she frowned in confusion, but he didn’t say a word. He went over to the large windows that took up one wall of his room, and with a press of a single button, watched as they pulled apart, letting in the glow of the three moons above.

Turning, he felt his heart jump in his chest at the sight of his mate basking in the glow of the moonlight.

Torian's didn’t have the best night vision, and he wanted to see every inch of her, every expression on her stunning face as he made love to her.

He went back to the bed and crawled over to Violet.

She reached for him as soon as he was close and pulled him to lay on top of her, her lips finding his in a hungry kiss.

He wanted to smile at her eagerness, but his mind was already lost in the heat growing inside him once more.

Shifting, Keel groaned in pleasure when Violet spread her legs for him, her heated core pressing against his throbbing shaft.

He wanted to be inside her so desperately, but he had to take it slow. He had to stay in control and think. If she showed even the slightest sign of pain, he would stop. It would be the hardest thing he’d ever have to do, but he wouldn’t hesitate for a second if his mate was in pain. Especially if it was him that was causing it.

Sliding one hand down her body, he found her entrance and ran his fingers over her core, making sure she was wet enough to take him easily.

He was pleased to find that she was. She might be new to mating, but her body knew exactly what it needed.

Violet moaned as he found her clit again, rolling gently as he kissed his way down her neck.

“Keel, I want you so bad,” She moaned, her hands tangling in his short hair again.

He loved the feel of her holding onto him like that. The way her body bowed and shivered with every kiss and every roll of her little clit.

He was on the edge himself. He knew that this first time it would be quick, but he didn’t care. He had the rest of his life to mate with his little human. He could take his time later.

Moving to line himself up with her hot entrance, Keel met her eyes and silently asked the only question on his mind at that moment.

Violet nodded, her eyes half lidded with desire.

Without a word, Keel slowly eased himself into her, moving only a tiny bit at a time, as he watched her face.

Violet closed her eyes, her head falling back on the pillow, as her breathing began to speed up.

“Look at me,” He said through clenched teeth, fighting to stay in control.

Violet’s eyes opened, her mouth parting to gasp as he pushed a little bit further into her.

“Am I hurting you?”

She swallowed, “No… Just go slow, okay?”

He gave her a sweet smile, “Of course. Tell me if you want to stop.”

She shook her head, her long black hair falling into her face, “Don’t you dare stop, handsome. Just… oh, God... just go slow. This feels incredible.”

He grinned, easing another inch inside her warm, wet body. She was so tight, that he feared he would spill his seed before he got all the way into her.

It felt too good, too right, and he wanted nothing more than to spend all night inside his mate, over and over again.

Keeping a close eye on Violet, he pushed in further, feeling her body squeeze around him as he finally got all the way into her. He stayed still, letting her adjust to him.

“Are you alright?” He whispered, his own body on the verge of finding bliss.

“Yes,” she breathed, “God, Keel, it’s amazing. I feel so… so full. So deliciously stretched. But…”

“But what?”

She blushed, her cheeks getting even more pink. “I, um… I need more. I don’t know,” She shook her head and turned her eyes away from his.

“Like this?” He asked, easing his hips back, then gently pushing forward again.

Violet moaned loudly, her eyes rolling back in her head as her nails bit into his biceps.

“Fuck, I’m going to cum again!” Violet cried, her legs wrapping around his hips as she bucked up against him, searching for more of his shaft inside her.

Keel bit back a growl, his balls drawing up in preparation to spill his seed. He had to hold back. He had to make sure his mate got what she needed first.

Pulling back again, Keel found a slow, easy rhythm that had Violet panting and clawing at his arms.

She was so close. He could feel her inner walls clenching down on his shaft, drawing him into her body even deeper.

Unable to hold back any more, he shifted so he held himself up on his hands on either side of her head, and began moving faster.

Violet cried out, her eyes flying open, but he only saw desire and a pleading for him to give her what she so badly wanted.

He picked up the pace, moving faster, driving harder into her, until she finally screamed out his name. Her body went stiff, her legs trembling, as her inner walls squeezed his shaft so hard, he lost all semblance of coherent thought.

Her orgasm ignited his own, and he threw his head back and roared out in pleasure as jet after jet of his seed spilled into her, stealing his vision for a moment.

When he was finally able to take a breath, he could barely hold himself up. His whole body felt limp and weak, and his mind was scattered into a million pieces.

He looked down, only to find Violet smiling up at him.

Unable to hold himself up any longer, Keel fell to the side, pulling her into his body.

“Did I hurt you?” He asked into her hair, before he placed a long kiss on the top of her head.

“No. I’ll be sore in the morning, but that was the most intense thing I have ever felt.”

“For me as well. I think I went blind for a moment.”

She chuckled, “Yeah, I saw stars. I really want to do that again, but I need a nap first.”

He smiled, “We are mates now, little fighter. We can do that as often as you want.”

“Hmm,” Her sleepy voice said as she snuggled into his chest more.

Keel closed his eyes, sending out a silent thank you to the Great God for giving him such a precious gift. He would love her, and cherish her, and protect her for as long as he lived.


Some time in the night, Keel woke to a strange sound. He’d been in a very deep sleep. The days in the jungle, the worry for Violet, and their mating earlier had taken their toll on him.

Rolling onto his back, he reached out a hand, only to find the bed beside him empty.

Opening his eyes, Keel’s mind instantly became alert when he saw three large figures standing in the shadows of his bedroom.

One of them was holding a smaller figure in his arms.

Rage unlike anything he’d ever felt before filled his blood when he opened his scent glands on his nose and found that, among the scent of unknown males, was the distinct smell of Violet’s fear. But worse than that, was the scent of her blood.

With a snarl, he shot up off the bed and charged for the males, not caring that he was still naked.

The one holding Violet in his arms backed away, leaving the other two to deal with him.

He had no weapons, but that wouldn’t stop him from tearing these males apart for daring to come into his home and touch his mate.

He tackled the one on the left, bringing him to the stone floor. As the breath was knocked out of the intruder, Keel sat up and began pounding his fist into the males face over and over again.

The skin on his knuckles broke, but the tiny sting went unnoticed in the storm of rage and fear he felt for what was happening to his mate.

Lost in the fog of anger, Keel didn’t see the other male come up behind him until it was too late. He turned just as something hard rammed into his face.

His head snapped back, pain exploding in his nose and mouth. The bone in his nose crunched, his vision going blurry as another hit slammed into his forehead, sending him falling to the side.

Keel tried to shake off the dizzy feeling, but the more he tried, the larger the black dots in his vision became.

Groaning, he rolled to his stomach and began to get up. The male he’d been about to kill got up off the floor with the help of his friend. He came over to Keel, his black boots reflecting the dim light of the moons.

Then, the first kick landed in his ribs. It knocked the air out of his lungs, sending him rolling to the side.

He gasped, trying to take in precious air. Lifting his hand, he went for his com to call for help, but before he could reach it, a large, solid boot came out of the darkness straight into his face. A second later, all that was left was darkness as Keel’s blood soaked head rolled to the side.
