A Siren Erotic Romance
After two hours of hiking, Abby was beginning to think they weren’t going to find the injured animal. Her heart ached to think about it out here alone and hurt, unable to take care of itself and suffering. Just as she was starting to give up hope, Brad came to a stop in front of her and knelt down, looking at the ground.
“She’s close.” He stood back up and moved more quickly toward the looming stand of trees before coming to a halt again.
Abby looked around him and gasped. About twenty feet ahead was a golden-furred panther. She was stretched out underneath a palmetto bush, and she was still alive. Her sides heaved as she struggled for breath. The cat lifted her head a couple of inches off the ground, and her ears twitched in their direction, but she made no other move. From the looks of her wounds, it was no wonder. Abby’s stomach rolled at the ugly gashes raking across the cat’s rear flank. The flesh had ripped open and hung in shreds. Dried blood caked her fur. Flies swarmed around the wounds.
Brad and Bryce knelt on the ground and worked to ready the tranquilizer, but Abby barely noticed. Tears leapt to her eyes as she watched the majestic creature suffer, feeling like it was her own pain. Without even realizing what she was doing, Abby darted around Brad and ran to the animal. By the time Brad and Bryce jumped up to stop her, she was already falling to her knees at the panther’s head.
“Poor baby.” Abby cooed to the creature and gently scooped the big cat’s head into her hands. “Good girl. Such a good girl.” She sat on the ground and laid the cat’s head in her lap then stroked the fur across the cat’s cheek and neck in long, soothing motions. “We’re not gonna hurt you, baby. We’re here to help.”
The cat turned its big brown eyes up to Abby then closed her eyes and settled her cheek against Abby’s leg, purring.
“What the…Abby, what the hell do you think you’re doing?”
Abby turned her face up to Brad, even though she could barely see him through the tears in her eyes. She heard the anger and alarm in his voice, but she knew his anger wouldn’t have changed what she’d done.
“She hurts so bad, Brad.” Abby’s voice hitched in her throat, and she felt the tears slide down her cheeks. She knew Brad would probably think she was crazy, but she had to say what flashed into her mind. “She has kittens…over there.” She motioned to the palmetto bushes a few hundred yards away.
Bryce went off in the direction Abby indicated, and Brad slowly knelt down in front of her. “Okay, Abby. We’ll talk about how you know all this later. What else can you tell me?”
Relief surged through Abby that Brad believed her. “It was an alligator. She was trying to catch a bird for her babies and got caught by the gator.”
Brad reached out and ran his fingers across Abby’s cheek, wiping the tears that continued to flow, then cupped her face in his hand. “We’ll take care of her, Abby. I promise.”
Abby nodded and looked down at the cat. “Did you hear that, girl? It’s gonna be okay.” The big cat purred as Abby continued to stroke her fur.
Bryce came back into view holding two small, brown bundles of fur. “You’re not gonna believe this.”
Brad looked over his shoulder at him. “Oh, I don’t know. I might believe a lot of things right now.”
Abby chuckled through new tears as the feeling of joy that the kittens had been found overwhelmed her. It wasn’t just her joy but the cat’s as well. Brad moved to the cat’s injured flank and slipped a hypodermic needle under the skin. The cat didn’t even flinch but continued to purr in Abby’s lap. Moments later, the cat’s body went limp as the tranquilizer took effect.
She wiped her eyes on her shirt and then looked up at Brad, able to see him clearly now. She expected to see anger in his eyes, but instead, a variety of emotions she couldn’t even name played across his face.
“You scared the hell out of me, Abby.”
She turned her eyes back down, and tears threatened to spill out of them again. “Sorry.”
“Hey.” Brad put one finger under her chin and tilted her face back up. “I’m not mad. I should be, but I’m not. That was incredible.” His mouth turned up in a lopsided grin, and Abby’s heart did a somersault.
Bryce knelt down next to them and put one hand on the wounded cat’s chest, while securing the kittens in the crook of his other arm. “Her heartbeat is weak, but it’s steady.” He glanced up at Brad and Abby saw a look pass between them, but she didn’t know what it meant.
“Let’s get this little lady and her kittens back to the boat.” Brad gently picked the big cat up and draped her across his broad shoulders then extended a hand and helped Abby to stand up.
Bryce had settled the kittens into an extra duffel bag, and they were poking their little heads out while he tickled their chins.
They retraced their steps back to the boat. Even though it was now the hottest part of the day, Abby felt somehow lighter. She was still trying to piece together what had happened back there and knew she was going to have to explain it to Brad. She just had to figure out how to explain it to herself first.
Brad held her face between both hands and stared intently into her eyes. “Abby, do you trust us?”
She held his stare. Her cat purred its answer. Abby agreed with it, wholeheartedly.
“Yes.” She raised her trembling hand and placed it over Brad’s heart. “I do trust you.” She looked at Bryce. “Both of you.”
Bryce leaned over and pressed his lips to hers. She willingly parted her lips to allow him entrance, and his tongue delved into her mouth, sliding along her tongue and driving her arousal higher. She tasted the citrus and spice that matched his unique scent. A hand caressed her left breast, teasing and rolling her nipple between his fingers. The action sent waves of pleasure down her body.
Brad moved to the other side of the bed, and she heard him rummage around in her nightstand. A flash of embarrassment shot through her when she remembered she kept her vibrator in that drawer. Bryce distracted her, and her embarrassment was forgotten as his hand left her breast and slid down her abdomen, creating shivers wherever he touched. His fingers parted her soft curls and teased her clit. He probed deeper and delved into her entrance, spreading her juices over her. By the time Brad rolled back over, she was writhing under the heated touch of Bryce’s fingers.
Bryce broke the kiss and looked down at her. “Our little cat’s getting impatient, brother.”
Brad guided Abby up and moved her so that she was straddling Bryce, who lay back on the bed and wrapped his hands around her waist. She braced her hands on Bryce’s chest as he guided her up and perched her above his thick cock.
“Are you ready, baby?” His eyes glowed as she looked down at him.
Abby was beyond ready, and she gave him her answer by slowly lowering herself down until she felt the head of his cock press against her entrance. The contact sent heat racing through her pussy, and she couldn’t hold back any longer. Sinking down onto Bryce’s hard shaft, she cried out as she took him inside her.
Bryce groaned under her and raised his hips to meet her. The motion rubbed her clit, and her whole body, already so close to the brink, shuddered as her orgasm broke over her.
Bryce sucked in a breath and held still while her walls clenched around him. “God, Brad, I’m not gonna last long. You better hurry.”
Abby felt Brad’s hand on her back, and he pushed her forward so that she was lying on top of Brad. Something cold ran down her ass, and she gasped.
“It’s okay, love.” Brad leaned over her back and kissed her neck. He put his lips to her ear. Shivers raced through her as he sucked on her earlobe and then traced his tongue around her ear. “Trust me, love. This is the only way to make the fever go away.” The whispered words and the feel of his hard body pressed against her back sent spasms down her spine and heat blazing through her veins. “When you feel pressure, I want you to push out against it, okay? Can you do that, love?”
Abby nodded. She’d do anything to stop the flames raging through her body like wildfire. Even with Bryce’s cock buried in her pussy, she could tell it wouldn’t be enough to put out the burning she felt. Fingers probed her crack and spread the liquid around her back entrance. Pressure made her tense up, but she immediately recalled Brad’s instructions and pushed out. One finger pushed through her tight ring and slid inside her, aided by the slick liquid she normally only used with her vibrator.
Bryce stayed perfectly still under her, but his hands played with her breasts, and he rolled her nipples between his fingers, sending little electrical sensations to her clit. Brad moved his finger in and out. Before long, she was pushing back against Brad’s finger as he worked it inside her.
More pressure alerted her to a second finger pressing against her, and she pushed out again. Brad worked his fingers inside her, stretching her and giving her time to get used to the feeling. By the time he inserted a third finger, she was pushing back against him with her own rhythm in a desperate attempt to stop the fire raging inside her.
“Can’t take much more, Brad.” Bryce pushed the strained words out through gritted teeth. Abby looked down at him and saw the strain on his face. He looked like he was barely hanging on to his control.
Brad slowly removed his fingers, and Abby cried out in protest at the loss of sensation, but Brad immediately pressed his shaft against her. She clenched instinctively at the increased size as a moment of panic sliced through her.
“Push out, love, like before.” She followed Brad’s instructions and pushed out as the tip of his cock pushed past her tight ring and slid inside. “That’s it, love. God, you’re so hot inside.”
Brad pushed inside her with agonizing slowness, the fire in her veins building higher and hotter. Finally, his flesh hit hers, and she knew he was completely inside her. The knowledge that she had both of these men inside her shook her for a moment. It was overwhelming and even a little scary. But then her body overpowered her mind and she couldn’t wait any longer. She rocked against Bryce, trying to get relief from the burning need that consumed her. She cried out in frustration, needing release now, but she didn’t know how to do this. Her body was too full from having two cocks buried deep inside her, and she was absorbing too many sensations for her to figure out how to move.
Bryce held her face between his hands, and she opened her eyes and looked down at him, pleading with him to help her. “Just relax your body and let us do the work. Okay, baby?”
