“Since we’re talking and shit now.” Caleb looked at him from the corner of his eye. “What was up with the way you acted back there? I was starting to think Roderick set me up or something.”
Seth’s fingers tensed around the armrest on the passenger door. He couldn’t just spring it on Caleb that they were mates. For fuck’s sake, he didn’t even know if Caleb liked men.
“Shit, man, I don’t know.” Seth bent in each finger cracking it at the knuckle. He silently weighed his options on to tell Caleb the truth or just give him a piece of it.
What do I have to lose?
“I guess I was taken off guard by how cute you are.” He mumbled the last word, covering his mouth with his hand.
“Excuse me? Did you just say cute?” The truck jerked as Caleb tried to straighten out the wheel.
“Um, yeah.” Seth clenched his eyes tight, exhaling a deep breath. Now he did feel foolish. “Is that okay? I mean does that offend you?” It was better for him to find out now if his fated mate was even gay or not.
“What, that you like me or that you referred to me as cute?” Caleb asked a tilt to his upper lip. “You do realize I’m a man, not a puppy, right?”
Seth started to laugh. This was good. He looked over at Caleb as he sat behind the wheel. His cheeks were a bit flushed, a sparkle was in his eyes, and a grin graced his lips. A pretty sight if Seth had ever seen one.
“I’m quite aware that you’re a man.” His voice dipped low. The familiar throbbing in his pants was a reminder that he found everything about this man sexy as fuck. “So I gather me finding you attractive doesn’t bother you?”
Caleb glanced over at him, the blush on his cheeks going to a deep crimson. Caleb coughed to clear his throat. “No, not bothered at all.”
“So you’re gay?” Seth asked before he could think of a better way to approach the subject.
The truck started to slow down and Caleb pulled over to the side of the road. He put the truck into park and turned in his seat to look Seth dead in the eye. The smile was gone and sweat began to bead up on his upper lip. Caleb’s tongue snaked out to moisten his dry lips and Seth’s eyes tracked each wet movement.
“Why are you asking me this?” Caleb asked.
“I’m curious is all.” Seth leaned forward, a little bit closer to Caleb. “Have you ever been with a man before?” A part of him wanted to know while the other part didn’t. He didn’t want to think of Caleb being with anyone.
“That’s none of your business,” Caleb said in a huff of hot air that fanned over Seth’s face, the strong, rich aroma of peaches cascading over his face. Caleb turned to rest heavily against his seat. “This is the most awkward conversation I’ve ever had with a man I just met. You know that?”
Seth nodded his head. He had to agree with Caleb, this was a first for him as well.
Caleb’s head rolled to the side, facing Seth. He nibbled on his bottom lip, his teeth reddening the plump flesh. “Can I tell you something and you not laugh at me?”
“Of course.” Seth scooted closer and nervously reached out a hand and rested it on Caleb’s knee. He hissed in a breath at the first contact he had with his mate. His fingers tingled with awareness. When he looked up, Caleb’s big eyes stared down at him, his chest almost heaving. “You can tell me anything you want.”
“It’s funny.” Caleb smiled. “I feel like that’s true. Which is weird since I just met you and all.”
“Maybe that’s why it’s easier,” Seth answered honestly.
“Yeah, maybe you’re right.” Seth saw Caleb’s fingers twitch as if he were about to reach down toward his hand, but he held back. “Okay, here goes nothing.” Caleb entwined his fingers of both hands and rested them against his forehead. “I’m a virgin,” he said so quickly Seth almost didn’t catch it.
“Virgin?” Seth’s fingers squeezed tighter around Caleb’s thigh. This was good news. Seth couldn’t believe his luck. “You’re a virgin?”
“It’s weird, I know.” Caleb closed his eyes. It was apparent that he thought this was a bad thing. “I was raised to believe sex was something special to be shared only with someone that I loved. Of course I’ve dated and kissed a few people, but that’s it.” Caleb slowly turned to meet Seth’s gaze. “I just haven’t found that one special person I’ve wanted to share that part of myself with.” Caleb shrugged. “I guess I’m old fashioned that way.”
“I don’t think there’s anything weird about that. I think it’s beautiful.” Seth raised his hand and lightly stroked his finger down Caleb’s cheek. The skin was so soft and smooth.
“Thank you.” Caleb nuzzled into Seth’s touch. After a moment he sat back and met Seth’s eyes again. “But I’m going to guess that you’re not a virgin are you?”
“Why would you assume that?” Seth asked, fighting back a smile.
“No offense, you look like sex walking.” Caleb chuckled. “You have that whole blond, blue-eyed, boy-next-door thing going for you. And—” Caleb held up a finger, pointing it at Seth “—the brooding, tough guy persona. I’m sure the guys and gals dig that.”
Seth could feel the graze of Caleb’s eyes as he looked him over. Heat flared to life in his belly. Caleb found him attractive. That was something. Seth could work with that.
“I’m not sure about the ladies, but the guys? Yeah, they think I’m pretty fucking awesome.” He laughed. “And to answer your other question, no, I’m not a virgin. But I’m starting to wish I was.”
Moving down further, Seth licked a path to Caleb’s left nipple. His mate was hairless and the skin was so smooth against his tongue. While he sucked on the rounded disk, he used his other hand to tweak and tug at the other nipple.
“Oh my gosh. That feels amazing,” Caleb shouted as he pulled Seth’s head closer to his chest. “Harder!” he demanded.
Seth let his teeth elongate and he lightly scraped his sharp teeth over the pebbled peak. Caleb cried out but didn’t relinquish his hold on Seth’s head. As he played with Caleb’s nipples, he could feel his mate’s cock burning a line his stomach. His own hard on drilled into the soft sheets covering his mattress. Seth found it hard to hold himself back when all he wanted to do was plow into Caleb’s tight ass, but he didn’t want to make his mate’s first time terrible. There would be plenty more times for him to take his mate roughly but tonight, tonight he’d go slow.
After a few more minutes, Seth moved to Caleb’s other nipple and showed the same attention, then he departed that area to go lower. Caleb’s body tensed as Seth kissed his way down the center of his chest, past his belly button, until Seth was licking the crown of his leaking cock. He cradled Caleb’s fur-covered balls with one hand while he guided the thick length to his mouth.
Seth teased the tip then licked down the sides. Caleb’s cock was a nice size, only a couple inches shorter than his nine inches. It was the perfect size for Seth to deep throat his lover and swallow around the swollen head and he did just that, not stopping until he had Caleb’s meat lodged in his throat. He worked his tongue and throat muscles together.
“Fuck!” Caleb shouted at the top of his lungs. “That feels so good,” he whispered as his voice trailed off.
Still massaging Caleb’s balls with one hand, he brought his other hand over to his mouth and slid a finger in alongside Caleb’s cock. He made sure to get it nice and juicy, then stroked it down to the sensitive skin between his balls and back entrance. Seth came up on his knees a little bit and used them to urge Caleb’s legs further apart. Once satisfied with the gap between his mate’s legs, Seth slowly worked his finger farther back toward the hot heat emitting from Caleb’s tight hole. He curled his finger and gently rubbed around the tight, rippled hole, painting the wetness on the small opening.
He circled his finger around and around, each time pushing a little harder at the center. Caleb’s fingers tightened in his hair as Seth finally broke through his resistance and pushed his finger inside. Caleb grunted but didn’t fight him or pull away. The snug grip on his finger wasn’t a surprise. This was new to his mate and Caleb needed time to adjust to the new sensations Seth was presenting to his body. With slow strokes, Seth slowly worked his way deeper into Caleb’s channel.
“Seth,” Caleb called out to him.
Seth let Caleb’s throbbing cock ease from his mouth, drinking down his mate’s pre-cum as it dribbled from his slit.
“It’s okay, Caleb,” Seth said in a thick voice. “I got you.”
Seth let go of Caleb’s balls and reached for the lube. He popped the cap and positioned the opening where his finger was buried in Caleb’s ass. He pulled his finger out a little bit and let the cool gel run down Caleb’s crack and cover his finger.
Pushing his finger back in, Seth started an easy rhythm of in-and-out into Caleb’s hole. Once Caleb began to loosen up to one finger, he added another. Caleb’s face pinched in discomfort but soon faded as Seth ran his free hand up and down his spread thigh. Wanting to add to his mate’s pleasure, Seth curled his finger forward, hitting the bundle of nerves that sat nestled in Caleb’s ass. Caleb jerked and cried out to the ceiling.
“Holy shit! What was that?”
“You like that?” Seth nailed his prostate again, causing Caleb to howl as if he were the wolf shifter.
“Fuck yeah, I do.” Caleb was now thrusting his hips down trying to seek more of Seth’s fingers in his ass.
“That, my love, is your prostate.” Seth massaged over it again. “If touched just right, it makes you see stars.”
“I believe it,” Caleb said breathlessly, his eyes clenched tightly together.
Seth added another finger and watched as all three digits worked his mate’s hole. The strong tightness was there since Caleb was a virgin but slowly his mate began to loosen up. Seth scissored his fingers in and out while keeping a close eye on Caleb’s reaction. His mate seemed to be enjoying every single minute of it. He was a natural bottom that would flourish even further once Seth’s hard, nine-inch thick cock filled up his hungry hole.
Pulling his finger free, Seth crawled up closer to Caleb’s ass until his blunt tip nudged at his hole. Seth grabbed the lube and poured some on his shaft then smeared the moisture over his hot pole as his eyes ate up Caleb’s sweat-covered body.
“You ready for me?” he asked as he teased the blunt tip over Caleb’s stretched hole.
“I think so.” Caleb giggled. “It’s now or never I suppose.”
Seth positioned the thread of his dick as Caleb’s opening and slowly pushed forward. He gasped for breath at the tight hole gripped at his cock.
