“How was your trip?”
“Exhausting.” Roderick answered Brandon as he threw his suitcase in the back of the man’s truck.
Over the past seven weeks, he and another hunter, Phillip, had started the interview process on all hunters that were current members of the East Coast section of the hunter’s council. Phillip was one of the only other hunters he trusted to assist with the interviews. There were hunters who truly wanted to accept the new changes and those only saying they agreed but continuing to kill. It was a cluster fuck to try and weed through the mess.
Roderick had grown tired of all the lies he had heard over the past few weeks. Most of the hunters who worked with the council didn’t know Roderick’s background and he didn’t give the information to just anyone.
Prior to working with the hunter’s council, he had been a marine. Joined up right after he graduated high school. He loved the daily life of a soldier. He knew what was expected of him and he was good at following and giving orders.
His ability to pay attention and keep calm in any situation made him a valuable asset as a sniper. To be able to sit for long periods of time and just watch his mark before he could take a shot. Roderick had been good at that. But like most things in life, things changed and after too many years of killing human beings, and watching too many of his friends die, he needed a change.
Killing wolf shifters was different for him at first. He’d seen what a crazed, out-of-its-mind wolf could do to a person’s body and it wasn’t pretty. Roderick thought he was doing a public service by ridding the world of these beasts. It wasn’t until he met one did his opinion start to change.
Just like humans, there were bad and good. Roderick had only been shown the bad until he met a sweet female wolf shifter. His boss on the West Coast council’s son fell in love with one of the wolves he was ordered to kill. The love those two shared was beyond anything Roderick had ever seen before. Watching those two together proved to Roderick that it was wrong to kill off an entire species based on what a few had done wrong.
Now Roderick worked to protect both humans and wolf shifters. There were humans who hunted wolf shifters for sport and wolf shifters who did the same to humans. Evil was evil and it didn’t differentiate between human and not-completely-human individuals.
For Roderick, it gave his life a better purpose. He didn’t want his life to be nothing but blood and death. Killing for the past ten years had starting to tarnish his soul. He needed a change and so did the council.
“But it’s for a good cause.” Brandon pulled away from the curb and headed for the highway. Roderick eased his chair back and closed his eyes. “There are hunters out there who need to be stopped and those that want to protect those who cannot protect themselves, be it humans or wolves.”
“Yeah, but it’s tiring to have to read between the bullshit to see who really believes what they say and those who just want me to believe what they say so they can go on like they have been.” Roderick rubbed a hand over his eyes. “If I see one more report about a kid wolf shifter being killed, I swear I’m going to kill the hunter responsible.”
“I hear ya. Ever since I met Erik, I feel the same way. All I was ever taught was to believe these beings were evil and deserved to die. Until you see it firsthand, it’s hard to accept,” Brandon said.
“Yeah, I know. It’s hard to accept change.” He looked over to Brandon. “But in this case it’s either change or the council will find a way to eliminate you. Don’t get me wrong, there are some bad motherfucking wolves out there that need to be put down, but we can’t classify them all in the same manner.”
“True.” Brandon looked at him and held Roderick’s stare. “These new changes make our jobs harder, but it’s worth it. You know that, right?”
“Of course I do and that’s why I’m not bitching about it.” Roderick turned to face forward and closed his eyes again.
“Oh I almost forgot. Dominic woke up while you were gone.”
Roderick opened his eyes just a bit to keep the bright sun out of his eyes. “That’s good. Does he remember what happened?”
“Nope, not a single thing, and when I say a single thing, I’m not exaggerating.” Brandon blew out a deep breath. “He doesn’t remember anything from his old life. Not his job, his hobbies, if he’s gay or straight. Nothing.”
“So are you saying this guy doesn’t remember he’s a wolf shifter?” Roderick waited for Brandon’s answer. He’d just gotten back in town and he didn’t want to have to deal with this, too. A wolf shifter who doesn’t know he’s a wolf shifter was a serious problem.
“That’s exactly what I’m saying.” Brandon answered.
“Shit,” Roderick mumbled under his breath. He’d never met Dominic but he had to assume the other members of his pack might get a little upset if he had to put Dominic down out of safety for the community. “Does he suspect anything? I mean, fuck, how does the guy not remember something like that? Forgetting what your favorite food is or if you can drive a car is one thing but this?” He shook his head. “This is bad, Brandon, and you know it.”
“I know and that’s why I avoided calling you. I wanted to give Dom time to remember.” Brandon’s grip on the steering wheel tightened and Roderick could see the whites of his knuckles. “It’s only been two weeks, Roderick.”
The thought of another man doing this to Roderick pissed him off. Dominic reached around and curled his fingers into the tight muscle of Roderick’s ass, forcing him forward. He needed to prove he was the only man Roderick would ever need.
“Fuck, Dom.” Roderick used his hand to try and urge Dominic to look up but he ignored him and went down deeper, swallowing around the flared head. “Dominic!” Roderick snapped as he simultaneously pulled Dominic by the hair to get him to release his cock. Dominic looked up panting for breath. “You need to watch those nails, baby.”
Roderick rubbed his thumb over Dominic lips and Dominic sucked the digit into his mouth. He circled his tongue around it and hummed as Roderick pushed it in and out of his mouth. Dominic didn’t look away as Roderick fingered his mouth slow and steady over and over again.
Dominic’s cock grew harder in his jeans and the material bit into the sensitive skin. Roderick must have seen the frustration on his face and pulled his hand away.
“Take off your clothes but,” Roderick held up a hand, “don’t get up. I want you to stay just like that on your back.” Roderick jumped off the back of the truck, his cock bouncing from the effort.
As Dominic yanked his shirt over his head, Roderick disappeared to around the front of the truck. By the time he came back, Dominic had his pants flung off and lay there stroking his dick.
“Did I say you could touch yourself?” Roderick asked in a stern voice.
“No, sir.” Dominic shook his head from side to side and took his hand away from his aching cock. “You didn’t.”
Roderick’s nostrils flared as he took a deep breath and Dominic could see the man’s hands tremble. He tossed whatever was in his hand up on the blanket then climbed back up and wedged himself between Dominic’s spread thighs. The blunt tip of Roderick’s cock jabbed at the sensitive flesh right behind his balls as he rocked into Dominic, pulling moans from the light, teasing touch.
“I fucking love that.” Roderick braced his hands on either side of Dominic’s head then came down to attack his lips, assaulting Dominic with his forceful tongue.
Dominic opened wide, letting Roderick have his way. It felt good to lose himself in this man’s touch. Suddenly Roderick broke the kiss and started working his way down Dominic’s body. Roderick licked and nipped at his nipples. The sharp pain lessened by the wet warmth of his tongue.
The lower Roderick went, the more Dominic started to thrash around underneath him. Only Roderick’s mouth touched and teased his body and it drove Dominic insane. He wanted to feel those rough, hard fingers caressing him, bringing him pleasure.
As if reading his mind, Roderick sat up and grabbed Dominic’s ankles, pushing his legs toward his chest. Dominic bent his knees and let Roderick position him until his knees nearly reached his ears.
“Put your arms around your thighs and hold yourself open for me.” Roderick waited until he did so before he let go. “Good boy. Now don’t move.” He gave Dominic a mischievous grin as he lowered his head.
“Yes, sir.” Dominic’s words ended with a squeal as Roderick blew his breath out on Dominic’s exposed hole. The hot gust sent shivers over his skin and Dominic’s grip on his legs tightened.
At the first touch of Roderick’s tongue at his entrance, Dominic cried out and would have pulled his thighs tightly together had it not been for Roderick’s broad shoulders between his legs. Roderick licked around the rippled opening, flattening his tongue to paint his spit over Dominic’s hole. Dominic moaned and pushed his ass back toward Roderick’s teasing tongue, needing more of that sensation.
“Fuck, yeah,” Dominic shouted when Roderick’s tongue pierced his opening, breaching the muscle barrier. All the blood in his body rushed to his inflamed cock, making it harder. He so badly wanted to wrap his fingers around his length and stroke himself until he came but he couldn’t do that, not without Roderick’s permission.
His body responded to the wet, soft invasion of Roderick’s tongue, opening up, letting Roderick go in deeper. A finger slid in beside his tongue, going smooth from all the spit Roderick shoved up his ass. The dual sensations of tongue and finger had Dominic whimpering. “Please, sir, I need to come.”
Roderick’s deep, rich chuckle fanned another breeze over Dominic’s over sensitized hole. Roderick sat up and pulled his finger from Dominic’s ass. The loss made Dominic feel empty but he watched Roderick reach for the condom he had tossed on the blanket earlier.
Dominic pulled his legs further apart so he could watch Roderick sheath his red, swollen cock in the thin latex casing. He reached for another little pack and used his teeth to tear it open. Roderick squeezed the clear liquid out on his fingers then rubbed it along his length.
Roderick moved closer and lined up his erect cock right at his opening. The head brushed over the tender flesh, smearing the lube over his hole. Then without warning Roderick pushed forward, the head breaching his entrance.
At the sharp, burning sting, Dominic closed his eyes. Roderick’s cock felt too big and only the head was inside him. He felt like he was being split in two and didn’t know if he could take any more than the small portion of the tip.
“Open your eyes and look at me.” Dominic unclenched his eyes and did as Roderick said. “Good boy. I want you to watch as I fuck your ass.” The sharp tone he used implied there was no room for debate on the issue.
So Dominic took a deep breath and kept his eyes on Roderick’s hard face. Slowly Roderick rocked his hips forward, feeding his cock a little further inside then retreating but leaving the head in him.
