A Siren Erotic Romance
Chaz felt himself slipping into sleep as the evening wore on. He couldn’t seem to hold his eyes open no matter what he did to wake himself up. “Sorry,” he apologized. “I’m bushed. What are the sleeping arrangements tonight?”
Hayden went around the cabin checking the windows and doors, making sure they were all locked tight. He turned to face Chaz. “There’s only one bed. You can have the couch if you want,” Hayden offered, “but I’ll tell you upfront, it’s uncomfortable as hell. You’re welcome to bunk with me.”
Chaz eyed the rustic sofa made from hand-hewn logs. While it looked great in the cabin, and was okay for sitting, he doubted it would be a comfortable night’s rest. He’d already seen the huge bed in Hayden’s room and knew it would be like sleeping on a cloud.
“I’ll bunk with you if you’re sure you don’t mind.”
The grin on Hayden’s face assured Chaz that he didn’t mind one little bit. “Okay then, that’s settled.” He followed Hayden into the bedroom, suddenly a little shy about what he should wear to bed. Normally he slept nude, but he wasn’t sure that would be such a good idea for tonight.
Sitting on the side of the bed, he watched Hayden strip off his clothes without an ounce of modesty. Chaz couldn’t help but swallow when he saw the length of Hayden’s cock. It hung thick and semierect along Hayden’s inner thigh. Chaz wanted to reach out and touch it, to watch it grow firm and full against the palm of his hand. He licked his lips and wondered what it would taste like, imagining it would be sweet with salty undertones.
Hayden turned and caught his stare. His cock gave a jerk and hardened, jutting out away from his leg. “Dude, don’t look at me like that unless you want to back it up.”
Chaz grinned. “Love to, but I’d go to sleep on you tonight.”
“Doubt that,” Hayden muttered under his breath. He pulled back the covers and slipped beneath the sheet. “Get undressed. It’s not like I haven’t seen a naked man before.”
Chaz hurriedly shucked out of his clothes and climbed under the covers, shivering with nerves and the chill of the room. As he huddled underneath the blankets, he felt the warmth of Hayden’s body as it spooned against him and Hayden’s arm snaked around his waist pulling him closer.
“Go to sleep.” Hayden’s voice in his ear was rough with need. “And don’t wiggle around, or all bets are off. You’ve got a sweet little ass, and I wouldn’t mind playing with it.”
Chaz smiled, feeling the soft kiss Hayden dropped on his neck just under his ear. He’d just floated into a semi-sleep when he heard a noise that nearly made him jump out of his skin. Something had brushed against the house. He was suddenly wide awake, listening. The sound came again, louder this time.
“What the fuck is that?” he asked, unable to sit up because Hayden’s arm held him firmly to the bed.
“What?” Hayden mumbled sleepily.
The sound seemed stealthier this time, and Chaz felt his stomach clench with fear. He pushed off Hayden’s arm and sat up in bed. “That. Can’t you hear it? What the fuck is that?”
Hayden tried to pull Chaz back into his arms. “It’s a tree limb. Go back to sleep.”
Chaz refused to budge. “I don’t think so, Hayden. I think I heard footsteps.”
“C’mon, back to sleep.”
“No, they’re coming after me.” Chaz was trembling now. He was shaking so hard his teeth were almost chattering. It seemed so dead quiet outside, no traffic, no dogs barking, no light filtering through the windows. The only sound was the occasional stealthy brush against the house, like someone trying to sneak to the window for a look inside.
Hayden sat up and gathered Chaz into his arms. “Shhh, it’s okay. I’ll go check it out if it will make you feel better,” he whispered in Chaz’s ear.
Slipping out of bed, not bothering to grab his pants, he padded silently out of the bedroom. Chaz couldn’t hear him moving around through the cabin, but he could feel his presence. He waited for what seemed like eternity for Hayden to return.
When Hayden came back into the room, he set a heavy object on the night table before crawling back under the covers. “Coast is clear. I need to trim that branch. Can you get back to sleep?”
“What did you have in your hand?” Chaz asked, curious.
“It’s a pistol. I’ll leave it there tonight so you’ll feel safer. Is that okay with you?”
Chaz nodded, and then realized Hayden probably couldn’t see him in the dark. “Thanks.”
Hayden wrapped his arms around Chaz and pulled him into the middle of the bed with a yawn. “You’re welcome.” He dropped another soft kiss on Chaz’s temple. “Next time you wake me up, it better be for fun.”
Hayden turned Chaz to face him. He cupped his face for a moment, enjoying the man’s beauty. He’d never seen such clear blue eyes or such a delicate, kissable mouth. Hayden lowered his face until their lips barely touched, savoring the softness of Chaz’s mouth. He wanted to go slow and make this special for Chaz, but he didn’t know if he could control himself to that extent.
“I knew I wanted you the minute you came bursting through my door,” Hayden said. He ran his hand through Chaz’s pale blond hair, feeling the thick silkiness of it as it slid through his fingers.
Chaz blushed. “I thought you were sexy the minute I saw you. Then I thought I was crazy to be thinking that with someone trying to shoot my ass.”
Hayden laughed. “Do you still think I’m sexy?” He knew the answer by the look on Chaz’s face, but he wanted to hear it from him.
Chaz reached out to trace a finger around the button of Hayden’s jeans and along the top of his waistband. “Yeah, I’m thinkin’ on a sexy scale of one to ten, you’re about an eleven.”
Hayden felt a squeeze in his belly that tightened his balls and made them throb. “You’re beautiful,” he told Chaz. Running his hands across Chaz’s shoulders and down his arms, he settled them at the smaller man’s waist. With a gentle tug he drew Chaz forward and unbuttoned his jeans, and then he slid the zipper down and reached inside to release Chaz’s rigid cock.
“You’re ready to play,” Hayden said, massaging Chaz with his skillful fingers.
Chaz’s lips curled upward. “No. I’m ready to get serious. Do you have any lubricant?”
Hayden reached into the glove compartment of the truck and brought out a tube of gel and a pack of TROJANs.
Chaz took them from his hand and set them on top of the still warm hood. With more confidence than he’d shown before, he reached out to unfasten Hayden’s jeans and pull them down around his hips. Hayden held his breath as he watched Chaz take one of the TROJANs from the hood and rip the foil open with his teeth. He placed the condom over the head of Hayden’s erection. With a firm but gentle pressure, he unrolled the extra-large prophylactic down the length of Hayden’s rigid cock.
Hayden kissed him hard and turned him around, putting a hand on his back and pushing him forward until he leaned against the hood of the SUV. With a nudge of his foot, Hayden scooted Chaz’s legs apart, like a man about to be frisked.
Squeezing gel on his fingers, he coated the TROJAN until he knew it would slide easily into Chaz’s ass. He didn’t want Chaz to feel one moment of discomfort. He wanted the man to have nothing but pleasure, exquisite pleasure. Hayden’s hand shook as he positioned his cock between Chaz’s ass cheeks. Chaz stiffened slightly at the pressure, and Hayden reassured him with a kiss to his neck as he slowly pushed himself in.
“You’re big,” Chaz panted, hands curling on the hood of the SUV.
“Am I hurting you?” Hayden asked, halting his entry.
“Oh hell no.” Chaz pushed back, impaling himself on Hayden until he couldn’t go any farther.
Hayden grasped Chaz’s hips in his hands and began stroking. He couldn’t slow himself down. His thrusts seemed to match his heartbeat, and he was practically hyperventilating with need. He couldn’t remember ever wanting a man as much as he’d wanted Chaz.
He heard Chaz groan, and he pushed back, meeting every thrust Hayden made forward. Their rhythm was so smooth they might have been lovers forever rather than this first time exploration.
“You’re perfect,” Hayden whispered in Chaz’s ear.
“You too,” Chaz gasped out when Hayden reached around to take Chaz’s cock in his hand.
Hayden stroked Chaz’s erection while he plunged in and out of Chaz’s ass. He gripped him firmly, feeling a tremor in Chaz that forewarned of his coming orgasm. Only then did Hayden let himself go. He let his climax build until he exploded with a hard jerking motion that sent Chaz tumbling over the edge along with him. Hayden’s hand wrapped firmly around Chaz’s cock, and he pumped until he felt Chaz’s spasm of release.
“Oh fuck,” Chaz groaned out, shooting his cum in a thick arcing jet.
Hayden held him in his fist until Chaz grew soft and they had both caught their breath. With a sigh of reluctance, Hayden pulled his cock out of Chaz’s shapely ass and turned him around for a kiss. “That was incredible, but wait till we’re at home where I can take my time with you. I’m going to fuck you until you can’t stand up.”
