A Siren Erotic Romance
“Bethy, please listen to me, I haven’t got much time. Go with Alexander. He is a good man and will take care of you. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do more for you, my dear. I have always loved you, and I always will, but my time has come to an end. Please promise me you will stay with Alexander. It is the only way that I will know you will be safe and protected. Please make me this promise, child. Only then will I be free to fulfill my own destiny.”
“What do you mean, grandmother? He hasn’t asked me to go with him anywhere. For goodness sake, just because we….” She trailed off there, not wanting her grandmother to know what the two of them had done. “I mean, we just met last night, and you want me to promise you that I will stay with him forever? How do I even know he wants me forever? Couldn’t I get to know him a bit more? Forever is a very long time you know.” Then she realized what her grandmother had said at the beginning of the conversation. “Grandmother, are you telling me you’re going to…” She just couldn’t bring herself to finish. No, her grandmother wasn’t saying good-bye. This was just a really weird dream.
Just then a shadow passed over her, and suddenly Alex was standing next to her. He reached down and drew her hand up to his lips, kissing it gently before lowering it. “Beth, you need to let your grandmother fulfill her destiny. Whatever you want to know about me, I’ll tell you. There will be no secrets, love. I’ve lived a very long time, have seen a lot of history. Some things are going to make you smile, others you will find distasteful, but I promise you, I will hold nothing back from you.”
Her grandmother walked up to Alex with a coy smile on her face. “I see you have succeeded in your dream also, my dear man. Oh how I wish I could turn back the hands of time.” She stopped there and shook her head for a moment. “I would have done things much differently.” She paused and stared at him for a long moment before continuing. “I loved you, you know. I just wanted to let you know that. And I am sorry things didn’t work out with us. I am sorry for my foolish actions. You didn’t deserve my immature, naïve attitude, and I have long since regretted the day I turned away from you. I knew you tried erasing my memories, but I wanted so bad to hang on to whatever little bit I could of you that I willed it not to be. I know I don’t remember everything, but what I do remember was that I hurt you. I am deeply sorry.”
Alex lightly brushed his fingers through her snow white hair. “Adeline, please don’t. It was a lifetime ago and you are right, you were very young. That era wasn’t so open to the whole paranormal thing like today’s people seem. Besides, if you and I had got together, then I wouldn’t be here now, and I would have never met Beth. So, I thank you, Adeline. I thank the fates that things turned out the way they did because Adeline, I am quickly falling in love with your granddaughter.” He reached over and pulled Beth in for a hug with one arm, while he held her grandmother in the other.
“I must go now,” a teary Adeline spoke up with a tremble in her voice. “Please, Alex, please promise me you will always be there to take care of her.”
Alex smiled down at Beth, his love shining in his eyes. “I would gladly give that promise. If she will have me, I’ll be there and take care of her and protect her for the remainder of her life.”
Beth gasped. That had sounded suspiciously like a marriage proposal. Her grandmother clearing her throat brought her out of her musings.
“Beth, what do you say? Will you take Alex as your man, forever to love and cherish, never to part or stray from him?”
Beth looked over to Alex, sure he was going to step in and stop her grandmother’s escapades. He just looked at her with all the love and adoration one person could possibly send to another. “Is she serious? Are we actually talking marriage here?” she confirmed.
“Well, she better talk marriage since you are now with child.” He chuckled as he brushed his fingertips gently across her still flat stomach. She whipped her head around and stared up at him with huge eyes.
“You are sure about this? I am pregnant?”
Grandma cut in before Alex could respond. “Yes dear, a healthy baby girl.” Then she chuckled before she added, “don’t worry, the next one will be a little boy that looks just like his daddy.”
The couple stared at each other in awe of the news they had just received. “Well, what do you say? Will you marry me and make me the happiest man-vampire alive?”
“Yes….but, will I be human or vampire?” she asked with a bit of uncertainty.
“While we are having kids, you will need to remain human. The body of a female vampire can’t handle the changes it needs to go through to carry a baby. But, if you are willing, as soon as we are finished having babies, I can change you over. It will be your choice.”
If you two wouldn’t mind, can we get on with things? I have places I need to be, and Bethy girl, you are holding me up. Now, do you love Alex?”
Beth looked up into Alex’s shining dark eyes. She couldn’t imagine living a day without him. “Yes, I do.”
“And Alex, do you love my granddaughter Bethy?”
Alex grinned down at her over the nickname her grandmother used. He somehow already knew she didn’t like it, but would never upset her grandmother in telling her so. “With all of my heart, I love you, Beth Montgomery.” He followed up with a kiss that was full of passion. It was a claiming. When he finally let her up for air, she looked around, but her grandmother was missing.
Her back was against his front, his thick erection nestled between her butt cheeks. He wrapped his arm around her and began to lightly play with one nipple. Moving her hair out of the way with his free hand, he began kissing, licking, and lightly nipping the side of her neck. She arched her head, giving him more room to play.
Once he had her body all hot and bothered, he took his hand from playing with her nipples and began a southern descent. He ripped her little lace panties off of her in one good pull. She gasped, turning her head with worry on her face.
“Shh, little one. Have no fear, I would never hurt you. And I’ll replace your panties.” Since her head was turned already, he snatched her lips up for a kiss. “Or maybe I won’t.” He grinned wickedly. “I think I like the idea of you walking around with no panties on.” His index finger strummed over her clit, making her gasp.
He flipped them over so that he was on bottom, with her on top of him. “Ride me, sugar.” He instructed. She was sitting on his abdomen, her juices wetting his skin. She slid down to meet his engorged dick, engulfing him in one smooth stroke.
Her breath caught as she bottomed out on him, his cock head hitting the mouth of her womb. He stopped her with his hands on her hips before she could start moving.
“I forgot to tell you earlier, you will need to take a tiny bit of my blood every few days to help the fetus grow.” She noticed his eyes burned with desire as he gave her this news. “I have been told it is a very erotic experience, so it might be best to do it while we are making love anyways.”
“What exactly do we do?” she asked as she tried to squirm on him a bit, but he held her hips in a death grip.
“It will only take me nicking my finger or opening my wrist a bit for you to get what you need. You only need about a teaspoon.”
She shook her head slightly. “I don’t think I am going to like the taste of blood.” She murmured.
“Just give it a try, baby. If you truly don’t like it or it doesn’t agree with you, we will find another way around it.” He promised.
He kept his hands on her hips but lightened up on the pressure so she could start moving. Then he leaned up and caught a nipple in between his lips, bringing it into his mouth, sucking on it deeply.
She increased her speed as soon as he started sucking on her nipple, feeling the sensation clear down to her pussy. She ground against him on the downward strokes, loving the way this position felt. Each downward stroke she ground her little clit on his abdomen, until he placed his fingers there and pinched her clit lightly. She exploded.
She was still grinding herself down on top of him, shouting out his name as her orgasm rippled through her. His finger was suddenly thrust into her mouth as she was ordered, “suck.”
The taste that hit her tongue was nothing like she had imagined. There was no metallic taste to his blood. It had a bit of a spicy bite to it, but wasn’t something she found revolting. But the effect to her body once she swallowed and it hit her insides was like nothing she had ever dreamed of. It was as if slow, rich thick honey was running down her insides, warming everything inside of her up, bringing all of her nerve endings to life. When that feeling reached her breasts, she thrust them toward him, while bringing her own hands up and cupping them in offering.
And then that warmth traveled lower, bringing her lower abdomen alive and awake again and she could feel another orgasm fast approaching. He was still pounding in and out of her, only this time when her inner sheath rippled and clamped down on his engorged shaft, she took him with her, milking every drop of cum from him she could.
