Keeley slipped out of bed then
turned to make sure Kalkin still slept. Usually, he woke with her, but after
everything with the trial and the start of the new build for the Sheriff's
Department, her mate was beat. She'd have to thank Danielle for the idea of
getting out of town.
Since it'd been years since anyone celebrated their
birthday—properly in the Raferty family, Keeley and Danielle made it their
mission to find a quiet hotel away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Sure, they brought their babies with them, neither one could leave them behind.
Yet, it still felt relaxing. Rejuvenating.
Keeley threw on her nightgown and grabbed the key card
off the dresser. Each room had a private hot tub. The keycard allowed them
access to the area, just behind their rooms. She inched the sliding glass door
open and stepped outside into the tepid early morning air. Today was going to
be another scorcher, with storms in the afternoon—a typical monsoon pattern for
Arizona summers. Since they would be going home in the morning, she wanted to
spend her day poolside with Kalkin, her sister, Caden, and their children. But,
for now, she wanted to be alone. Lord only knows how loud they could all get
and Keeley taking five minutes for herself didn't happen on the regular.
So, she had to seize the time herself.
She still had an hour or two before Ella and Colin
would wake and if it meant going out now, with the sky still a dark blue with
splashes of pink and orange of the coming day, so be it. Keeley placed the key
into the strip reader and waited for the light to turn green. When it did, she
stepped into the small space and sighed. The cool air of the central unit
chilled her clammy flesh.
Staring down into the clear water of the hot tub, she
had second thoughts about getting in naked. So many germs were always lurking.
Not to mention she was still a bit self-conscious about her weight since having
the twins. Maybe it's not so much the germs, it's the fact I'm still fat.
She frowned. Kalkin never complained. He loved her body and she should too, but
when she looked at Danielle or even Jasmine, she couldn't help but compare
herself to them.
"What the fuck is my problem?" She frowned
and pushed her sleep tousled hair out of her face. "Who cares who sees me.
Not like anyone is coming in here."
Keeley stripped off her nightgown and lowered herself
into the water. A startled yip, at the cool temperature, had her cheeks flaming
with heat. She'd just assumed it would be warm or at least warm enough until
she got the jets going. Yet, sitting in the cool water also relaxed her. It
took the humidity from her skin and the perspiration from the nape of her neck.
She sighed, leaning back in the water and closed her eyes. Just for a little
while, I'll relax.
The lock disengaged and Keeley's eye flashed open. There,
in the doorway was her mate. His hands were braced on his hips, the shorts he
wore were tented at the front and a single wet dot marred the front of them.
Kalkin was glorious. He was an Alpha in his prime. His broad chest had been
covered in tribal tattoos along with a giant wolf on his back. She wanted to
lick every inch of him the longer he stood there. He'd let her too. Her gaze
lowered back to his groin and he adjusted himself, taking a moment to fondle
his dick and balls.
Kalkin groaned. His gaze became heavy-lidded with
desire. "Look at you all laid out like a banquet for me. You're just
begging to be fucked, aren't you sweet cheeks?"
She gasped. Heat scalded her flesh. "Kalkin
"You know I'm always ready for you. Close your
mouth or else I'll feed you my dick. She shut her mouth and he laughed. He
closed the distance between them then sat down beside her before pressing a
kiss to her lips. "Good morning. You okay?"
"Yup" She squeezed the cold water from the
end of hair before she flipped it over her shoulder and shivered as the cold
water chased the heat away. "I love our extended family, but sometimes...
Sometimes I just need some peace and quiet." She closed her eyes and
sighed as she got comfortable once again.
She heard rather than saw him remove his shorts, then
his large, lumbering body climbed into the water behind her. The hard planes of
his body were pressed to her fluffy, curvy ones. The length of his cock pressed
to her lower back and she bit her lip to keep from begging him to fuck her.
"I can feel that you know."
"Not my fault you got out of bed without me. We
could be dealing with this right now," he grumbled.
Keeley laughed and shook her head at him. Almost three
years into their relationship and she loved the fact they were not only
compatible but also comfortable with each other.
Kalkin leaned forward and nipped at her ear lope.
"What have you been thinking about?"
"Life, changes and babies." She smirked when
she felt his dick kick against her back. Keeley glanced over her shoulder at
him. "I'm guessing pretty soon, you'll want to have another child." She
wasn't put off about the idea. On the contrary, she wanted more with Kalkin. At
least two more. Maybe three. As it stood, the twins were coming up on their
second birthday. It would be unfair to them if she waited years between
children. Having them close together would give them a stronger bond as
Kalkin chuckled. "I thought about it. I love our
children. More than life. I love you more than anything." He kissed the
side of her neck and growled. "Strange huh? Three years ago we danced
around each other. Fought. Fucked. Fucked some more and look at us. Look at all
of us, sweet cheeks."
She sighed with a grin. "I know."
"We're mated. We have kids. This was our destiny.
I was meant to meet you. I was meant to mate you. God...I can't even tell you
the pride I feel in our family. In all of us. In you. You are not the woman I
met. You've grown into the woman you are today and fuck, sweet cheeks. I love
you so goddamn much. You've given me everything." She sniffled and turned to
him. He lifted her chin and smiled down at her. With a gentle caress, he wiped
her tears away and kissed her. "You are my life. The air I breathe. Without
you, I'm nothing."
She stared at him for a while, completely speechless.
"Everything is supposed to change, sweet cheeks.
If it stayed the same, our lives would be stagnant." He kissed her again,
this time with a hunger she'd been trying to push down since waking. "What
got you thinking about everything? Just us being cooped up together."
Who would have thought, Kalkin Raferty a family man
She smiled up at him as she turned and pushed him back some. He scooted to the
side and watched her with those ice-blue eyes of his she adored. Without an
ounce of hesitation, Keeley straddled his lap, and Kalkin palmed her ass.
"I love you so much. You and our babies and I'm so glad that you fought
for me, for us. You helped me grown and change. You know that right?" She
cupped his face. "You always made me want to be a better person, a mate
for you. I know I wasn't exactly the easiest to get along in the beginning. I'm
amazed you didn't kick me to the curb at some point." He growled her name and
she rolled her eyes. "Honestly, Kalkin, looking back I often wondered how you
could even love me, let alone stand me. I'm grateful for the mating because we
couldn't turn our backs on each other, and you forced me to grow up. Something
I needed to do. I'm glad we fought for what we have now. I can't even—" a
lump formed in her throat— "Not having you or my babies...I'd never
He kissed her again, his big hands rocking her over
him, teasing her. "I love you, Keeley. You're mine and I'm yours. You were
always worthy. You had to see it yourself to believe it." Kalkin bent his
head and placed a kiss to her mark. "I'm glad I get to be the man who
guides you back to that path when you get lost in that pretty head of
yours." He nibbled on the flesh, causing Keeley to suck in a breath and
let out a soft moan. "You want it? Wanna ride my dick as the sun comes up?
She whimpered and bit her bottom lip.
"That's not an answer, sweet cheeks. You know I
need to hear it or else you know what happens."
The rules never changed between them. She knew it. If
she didn't answer, he'd stroked off in front of her and he'd make a production
out of it. She'd watch as he'd paint her pussy with his cum then, she'd have to
walk around covered in his scent—achy and needy—until she told him what she
wanted. His hand lowered to his hard dick and began to pump the flesh between
"Come on, babe. Tell me. My balls are full. My
dick is so fucking hard it hurts. We both need to fuck. I need to fill you up.
Say the word and I'll get inside you and make you feel good." He leaned
forward. "I'll knot that pussy so tight, you'll feel me for the rest of
She blinked and licked her lips. She craved his
dominance. Sometimes she swore it was like a drug. The more he doled out, the
more she wanted it and needed it. She knew what would happen if she didn't
answer him, and yet watching him masturbate was also exciting. She'd been
tempted to stay quiet. She understood what would happen and how long they'd be
locked together that night, but she also had her needs. Right now, she needed
his cock inside her, fucking her. "Yes. Fuck, yes, Kalkin. I want to ride
you while the sun comes up."
She leaned in to kiss him, but he was quicker. Kalkin
jerked her out of the water and had her on the bench beside the hot tub in an
instant. He wrapped her long hair around his hand and pulled her head back. The
cruel edge to his gaze mixed with the lust and love she saw there. She arched
to him, giving him full access to her body. Pleasure rushed down her spine from
the pin-pricks of pain as he tugged on her hair.
"Take me, she whispered. "I need..." She
was aware she walked a fine line when she told him what she craved. "I
need it, Kalkin. I need you, so very much."
He jerked her head back further and laved at the mating
mark he had left years ago. "Beg me."
"Please!" she begged, writhing below him.
"Fuck me, Kalkin. Now. Please."
"I fucking love it when you beg." He licked
the column of her neck then positioned her on his lap, his cock poised at her
pussy. "Get me inside you."
She rolled her hips, whimpering and moaning as he slid
deep inside her. "Kalkin..."
"That's my girl. Take it all now, don't
stop." When she sat flush to him, he grinned. "Feels like coming
home." He guided her over him, keeping their pace nice and slow.
"That's it. Get me all wet, make me slick." Kalkin's lips brushed
across her ear. "I love it when you fist my cock. The way you squeeze me,
demanding my cum. The way you flutter around my tip, teasing me. You make me so
fucking hard." His grip tightened and a howl fell from his lips. "Next full
moon, I'm knocking you up. I'm going to fuck you hard, every hour on the hour.
I don't give a shit what anyone else says. I love knowing my pup grows in you. I
love seeing you pregnant. I love the fact you take so easily." He groaned when
her pussy rippled. "You're getting off on it, aren't you? Knowing how you
affect me? Knowing I can't keep my dick out of you." Keeley cried out and
bounced on his cock. He flicked her clit with his middle finger then rubbed the
hard nub. "Come, sweet cheeks. Give me all of your sweet cream. Then, I'm
going to fuck you like an animal. Like the wolf I am.
She cried out as her release coated him and her sex
convulsed around him. She was milking his cock for everything she was worth, and
she loved it. "Yes...yes, please..."
"Fuck yes mate. Fuck, your pussy feels so good. So
damn hot and sweet. I love that you're trying to get me to knot you. But, I'm
not ready to give you my cum. You're going to beg for it while I'm fucking you
hard and nasty." Kalkin pulled her off of him. "We're fucking like
wolves." He got her up on her hands and knees then smacked her ass.
"Look at your pretty ass. He smacked her ass hard and she gasped.
"God, what a sight." She wiggled her ass for him, silently pleading
for him to keep going and not stop. "You want this?" He slammed into
her then pulled out and started jerking off on her ass. The wet trail of his
precum turned her on. "Tell me." He slammed into her again and pulled
out, then smacked her ass. "Fuck this feels so fucking good. Doesn't it,
mate? The thought someone could hear us or see us..."
She clamped down hard on him when he filled her again.
"Oh, so you do like being watched." He
groaned, giving her a few lazy thrusts. "Your pussy went molten around me
and slick. Dammit, mate. The idea of getting caught while my knot is
throbbing..." He growled. "I love your kinks mate. It turns me on."
She arched to him, crying out as pleasure raced down
her spine, pooling low in her belly as he powered in and out of her. His mouth,
oh God, his mouth was so damn filthy. But at the same time, those lewd words of
his turned her on. He knew exactly what buttons to push, and how far to push.
She went down on her elbows with every hard thrust and countered with her own.
Her fingers dug into the wood, leaving groves as one of his hands held her hip
and another wound her hair up around his hand, tugging her to him. She trusted
him explicitly. "There...oh God...right fucking there, Kalkin" She
panted as the tip of his dick rubbed the sweet spot deep inside of her body.
Her hand smacked down on the wood as he increased thrusts. Sounds of his hips
smacking her ass and the slurping sound of her pussy as he fucked her mixed, arousing
her to the point of pain.
"Going to cum..." she cried.
Kalkin lifted her so her back was to his chest. Her
thighs were spread wide allowing the cool air of the room to brush over her
sensitized clit. It throbbed with her impending release. He lowered his hand
and began fingering her clit while he continued to whisper all the debauched
things he'd do to her later. On every third stroke, he added his two fingers to
her pussy, pushing them as deep as they could go. Her eyes went wide. Her back
tensed. She'd never felt anything as exquisite or lewd before. The way Kalkin
rubbed her walls then stroked himself, had her breath leaving her on a rush.
"Please, Kalkin. Let me come." She cried as he pulled his fingers out
of her and went back to stroking her clit. "No fair. You pulled out just
when it was getting good."
Kalkin chuckled. "Not what?"
"You want to come? On my dick? He grunted feeling
the first flutters of her release washed over her. "You mean you don't
like me teasing you? He stopped thrusting and touching her. "This better?
Were you getting too worked up?"
She shook her head. "Don't stop."
"So, what do you want me to do... This?" He
circled her clit twice before entering her again and rubbing the walls of her
pussy with his fingers.
Keeley cried out. "Yes! Don't stop. Please!"
"But, I thought you said no fair?" He halted his
movements. "So, what do you want? Fair or to be so thoroughly fucked I
have to carry you inside?"
"You know what I want." She rolled her hips,
in an attempt to get what she wanted.
He growled and smacked her pussy. "Answer my
She bit her lip and moaned. Kalkin!
when he did again—harder. She saw stars. Her head felt so heavy. Her body was
so light like she drifted. "I want what you want, Master." Her words
were slightly slurred, and she smacked her lips, convinced her whole mouth was numb.
"I love it when you call me, Master." He
started moving once more, shortening his strokes. "What I'd like is to
fuck my pussy. I want it nice and creamy. I'll tell you when you can come and
you'll thank me for letting you get off on my cock because you know how much I
love feeling you go molten on me." He palmed her breast and squeezed. "Take
what I give you and enjoy it. There's no hurry out here, sweet cheeks. We're
having fun, right.
She nodded and said, "Yes."
"Later, when we get home, I'll tie you up and use
your favorite toy on your ass. Then I'll fuck you hard until my knot is firmly
inside you, so none of my cum leaks out." She contracted and released
around his cock and he chuckled. "Uh oh, someone came hard on their
Keeley tensed. "Sorry." But she wasn't
though. She continued to pulse and ripple around him as the sweetest pain and
pleasure swirled through her body.
He chuckled. "No, you're not. I made you come. I
knew it would happen. Feels good doesn't it."
"Felt good for me too. Now, we're going to fuck
hard. Remember your safe word and if you need it, use it." He pitched her
forward slightly and began to fuck her hard. "That's it, sweet cheeks go
with it. Give over to me..."
He fucked her so hard it hurt, but it was the type of
hurt she liked. Pinpricks of pleasure raced through her. She opened herself
completely to him, allowing him to experience her pleasure along with his. It
would drive him wild, she knew it, it was why she did. His loud curse and the
stutter of his hips let her know, it was working.
She astral projected herself, giving her a chance to
watch him fuck her. His eyes were red, feral almost as he pounded his dick in
and out of her pussy. The skin of his cheeks was flushed and the muscle above
his right temple ticked. She smiled, he was fighting back his orgasm, making it
last for them both. He loved when she connected them, it was something he
strived for often. She felt her body begin to quiver, shudder and her womb
clenched around him, squeezing him and hold him as she exploded on him. A wash
of cream coated his dick as he growled behind her to ease up on him as her
orgasm washed over her. "Kalkin..." she croaked, "I need
She needed his cum, his knot and then she needed him to
paint her body with their combined release, marking her with his cum. He rolled
her clit and altered between teasing her slick walls and stroking himself. He
was close. So fucking close she could feel him grow within her.
"Just a little more, sweet cheeks. I know you can
go with me. Fuck...so close." His voice was strained, tense from holding
back. "I can feel the knot twitching like a mother fucker. I'm going to
come so hard. Even my ass was clenching. Son of a bitch." He buried his
face in her neck. "So fucking good. So fucking hot. I need to nut so
fucking bad. You ready?"
"One more time, pet. One more time." He
fucked her hard and she could feel knot started to fill. "Gonna
come." He shortened his strokes and she screamed as he slammed into her
one last time. The howl he let loose with as he locked inside her sent her over
the edge again. Then he wrapped his mouth around her mark and bit down. She
went nova on him and seared his cock as she came. She shuddered and jerked in
his arms, riding out her release. "Fuck yes, sweet cheeks. That's it, ride
it out, I got you. I fucking love you." He jerked on the knot and felt her
cum again as he spewed more of his release inside her.
She fell forward onto the bench, and Kalkin came down
with her, tugging on the knot to extend their pleasure. She could feel him
pulsing inside of her, filling her with his cum. Her release mixed with his and
ran down her legs, leaving a sloppy, sticky mess on the wood. Kalkin tugged
hard on the knot and her vision narrowed. His voice sounded like he was far
away and in a tunnel. She was going to pass out. Bliss. She could feel the
darkness surrounding her, pulling her under. The last thing she remembered was
going limp under his weight.
When she came back around, Kalkin's arm rested under
her head and they were laying on their side. If anyone looked, it would simply
appear as if they were cuddling as the sun began to clear away the dark from
the sky. She could still feel him, his dick was buried deep inside her pussy
and the knot was still engaged. Every so often he'd twitch and pulse. Her
pussy, her thighs, and legs were soaked with their releases and she wondered
for a minute if she had missed it as he had rubbed it into her skin.
Keeley glanced over her shoulder. His eyes were closed
and her heart jumped in her chest. She loved to look at his face after they
fucked. He became content, relaxed and unguarded. She loved that she got to see
this side of him. "Did you..." She started to ask but stopped when he
opened his eyes and the same look she saw on his face was now reflected in
those ice-blue eyes of his. He smiled at her, and she smiled back. "You
didn't..." She gasped when she the knot ebbed and he pulled from her. As
always, he could fuck her again. Her mate, the Alpha was in his prime and his
stamina was higher than most.
"Did I do this?" He began rubbing their
releases into her skin. "No, not yet. I was so relaxed and felt so good, I
was enjoying the moment." He continued to rub their releases into her
flesh. "No shower this morning. Before we go to bed tonight, I want you to
bathe in the lavender bath salts you love so much. Then I want you to only wear
your silk robe and present yourself to me on the bed, with your favorite toy.
You know the one."
"Good. Now, would you like to go in and change? I
am sure my brother and your sister would love some breakfast, hell so would our
kids." He kissed her neck. "I love you sweet cheeks. I know to the
deepest part of my soul none of this would be possible without you. This life.
Our love. Our family. It's all because of you and your sister. The four of us
started this." He kissed her, then nuzzled her neck. "You're the best
thing to ever to ever happen to me."
She turned over and faced him. Tears blurred her
vision. "No, Kalkin, you're the best thing to happen to us. I love you so
much. Happy birthday, my heart." She kissed him then, allowing him to feel
the depths of her love.
"Fuck, we're never getting out of here. I need you
again," he teased.
Once they were dressed, they headed back to their room.
Thankfully, the hotel gave them a room with two bedrooms so the twins had a
space of their own. Kalkin poked his head into their bedroom to check on their
still sleeping forms. "Look. We did this. We made them. Without you. I
wouldn't have them." He closed the door and walked down the hall a bit and
opened the door then turned to her. "Without you. Without your words.
Without your encouragement and love your sister and my brother wouldn't have
their family either. Do you finally see how important you've always been to
this family? Do you finally see what you were meant to become? You are the
glue. You are the beacon in this family. You're our light. Without you, we're
nothing. God, I fucking love you so much. You never have to do anything fancy
like this—" He motioned to the room— "because every day with you is
Tears blurred her vision as he spoke and she made no
attempt to wipe them away. "If I'm the beacon, then you're the foundation.
This family is built on you. You realize that right? We wouldn't be here
without your strength, courage, and determination. It's what has always pushed
this family forward." He wrapped his arm around her and guided her to
their room so they could dress. "I love the fact you show me parts of
yourself no one else gets to see or even imagine would come from you. You come
off like a hard ass—" she snorted— "Ok, so you are a hard ass, but
you have a softer side. A side your children always get to see and I get to
see. No one else. It's special and I cherish it."
She slipped her shirt on. "You were right there
with me every step of the way. Pissing me off, fighting with me and pushing me
to become what you knew I was destined to be. I couldn't have done any of what
you said without your love and support. I love my sister. Hell, I even love
your brothers, even when they are driving me batty. My children are my heart
and I love and adore them but you." She poked at his chest. "You own
my soul." She stepped into his open arms. "All of this started with a
simple kiss. One single kiss that changed me...changed us for the better."
Keeley went to her tip-toes as he leaned down and their lips met. She rested
her hand on his wide shoulder, while she buried the other in his curly black
hair. "Love you, lover boy. Happy birthday." A wicked grin tugged at
her lips. "Also, I'm already pregnant."
Kalkin pulled back. "I knew." He tapped the
side of his nose. "I was waiting for you to confirm it."
She looked up at him through her lashes. "I
planned on giving you the test and first ultrasound at dinner tonight, but I...
Well, we both got a little carried away."
Kalkin chuckled. "So we did mate. So we did."
He went to his knee before her and placed his palm to her lower belly.
"Welcome to the family little pup. Your mommy and I can't wait to meet
you. For now, grow big and strong for mommy and me."
Keeley wiped away her tears. "No, we can't."
