Three hours and eight interviews into the day and Caleb was done with looking for a new housekeeper. “Tell me why we need to find another housekeeper?”
“Because the last one quit on us when she saw the mountain of clothes that needed washing. Plus, none of us can cook,” Dante pointed out as he reclined in one office chairs.
Caleb rubbed his forehead in frustration. “Fine. How many more of these interviews do we have?”
Drake looked at this list on his lap. “Four, but I’m more concerned with finding someone who will be able to keep the fact that we’re shifters as secret.”
Caleb inclined his head in acknowledgment as he looked out of the study window into the garden out back.
A knock sounded at the door, signaling the arrival of the newest interviewee.
Caleb sighed and nodded for Dante to go and bring the next man in from the foyer. He walked over and sat behind his desk before reviewing the next resume. Furrowing his brows, he looked up as the door opened. Confusion then shock entered his system.
Instead of one interviewee, there were two, and from the delicious scent starting to fill the room, one of them was his mate.
Caleb looked down at the two resumes on his desk. It stated that the two men’s names were Jayden and Tristan, and they lived at the same address. He scowled, not liking the idea of his mate living with another man or possibly being in a relationship. Caleb did not think the two were a couple as they both were obviously twinks, but his inner wolf was still restless at the idea.
Dante guided the men to sit in the two chairs in front of the Alpha’s desk before returning to his cushioned chair on the other side of the room.
Once they were settled, Caleb cleared his throat and looked down at the applications. “My name is Caleb Wolfe. Behind you is my brother, Drake, and right-hand man, Dante Burrows. I am quite curious as to why two of you showed up for a position I am only offering to one person.”
The two men’s eyes met as they had some type of silent communication.
Caleb could feel his wolf’s ire at the close connection the two men had. He needed to determine which of the two was his mate quickly so he could begin wooing him before his wolf took the choice out of his hands.
Apparently, the men had come up with some decision during his distraction with his wolf and the one with blue spikes turned back to him. “Honesty, I hate cleaning and Tristan can burn the kitchen down just boiling water. However, Tris is obsessed with cleaning, and I enjoy cooking up new recipes.”
“We just thought that it might be easier to hire someone to focus on one task instead of spreading themselves thin doing both.”
Caleb leaned back in his chair. “Fair enough. Since there are two of you, though, your salary will have to be split. I think that would be a fair compromise if I were to hire you.”
Both men indicated their understanding, and this time Tristan turned to answer. “We understand. Jayden and I both really need this job and are willing to work hard for it. All you have to do is just give us a chance.”
Caleb’s cock swelled at the sound of the man’s voice, and his gums tingled with the need for his fangs to drop. There was no denying that this little blond-haired beauty was his soul mate, the one that fate chose for a shifter to spend the rest of their long lives with.
At Dante’s discreet sniff, he turned to the man and nodded toward his mate and his friend. He didn’t care what it took, he wanted the man to stay.
Dante inclined his head in acknowledgment, a smile tugging at his lips as he looked at the two men and then Drake. The heat in his brother’s gaze told Caleb that Jayden was his mate. Chuckling at the coincidence of both finding their mates at the same time, Caleb returned his attention to the two men waiting anxiously for his decision. “Gentlemen, I know this may seem quick, but judging from your resumes and the fact that you two brought up a valid point about hiring two housekeepers versus one, we are willing to give you the job.”
Tristan’s mouth dropped open in shock. “Really, just like that?”
Caleb had to repress a growl as he watched Jayden elbow his mate in his side.
“We like to think of ourselves here as having good judgment in people,” Caleb explained. “That aside, we also called your references before scheduling this interview, and from the remarks we received, you are both hardworking and trustworthy men. That is exactly the type of people we want to work for us.”
Both men smiled hugely and quickly accepted the job offer.
They got up to shake his hand, and Caleb felt a spark run through his body when he touched his mate’s hand. He held on to it a few seconds longer than he did with Jayden’s, which earned him a startled look. He just smiled mischievously and released the man’s hand.
“Let us discuss the parameters of the job,” Caleb started after both men had returned to their seats. “Drake, if you could inform the other interviewees that the position has been filled, we will see about getting these men set up.”
Caleb glanced down at his mate who looked up at him and smiled. Taking a chance, he carefully lowered his head and took his mate’s lips in a gentle kiss, savoring his flavor. He would never get tired of the almost exotic taste of his mate.
Leaning back, Caleb had a moment to see Tristan narrow his eyes before the man turned to straddle his lap and took his mouth in a carnal kiss. Their tongues battled for dominance before Tristan pulled back to nip at his lips.
“I don’t want gentle, Caleb. I want you to take me and imprint on me that I am yours. That I am safe and loved,” he said.
Caleb turned and laid his mate on the bed before taking his mouth once more. This time there was no battle of wills as he devoured the man’s mouth.
Tristan submitted to the man that was his mate and moaned as heat began to spread throughout his body. He ran his hands through Caleb’s hair and tugged on the strands, trying to pull the man even closer.
Caleb leaned back and smirked down at him with a carnal expression before slowly lowering down his body, leaving a trail of kisses behind.
Tristan gasped as wet heat engulfed him and Caleb’s tongue began to play with the underside of his glans. He moaned as the man suckled at his tip before lowering to swallow him to the base of his cock. Tristan could feel every pull of the man’s mouth from head to toe. When he began to spear his tongue into his slit, Tristan quickly grabbed Caleb’s head and pulled him back up.
“Too much,” Tristan panted. “I’m going to come.”
Caleb gave him a wolfish grin. “You are going to come a lot before I let you out of this bed,” he replied, once again taking Tristan’s cock into his mouth.
It only took a few more pulls before Caleb had his mate shooting into his mouth. He swallowed everything Tristan had to give until he lay limp beneath him.
Chuckling, he turned his mate over onto his hands and knees, ignoring the grumbling aimed his way. Settling behind him, Caleb spread Tristan’s cheeks until he could see the little pink starburst that brought him so much pleasure. He leaned forward and began to loosen him with his tongue.
Tristan gasped at the feeling of Caleb’s tongue angling into his hole. He had never had a lover loosen him like this, and the feeling was immense. He could feel his dick get hard again, despite already orgasming once before.
One of Caleb’s hands slowly slid forward to wrap around Tristan’s dick and tug in tandem with the thrust of his tongue. Moaning, he pushed back against his mate’s mouth as Caleb increased the pressure and pace of his hand and wrung yet another orgasm out of him.
As his dick jetted cum onto the sheets below him, Tristan felt the blunt head of Caleb’s lubed cock push into his ass. Oh lord, the man was out to kill him. Caleb was stretching him to perfection, and he could feel every slight movement the man made.
Pleasure filled him as Caleb finally bottomed out, and he smoothed his hand down his back. Tristan looked back over his shoulder and was stunned at the look of adoration on the man’s face. He started to ask what was wrong, but the man chose that moment to begin moving, robbing him of speech.
Caleb thrust deep into his mate, searching for that one special spot that would bring the man pleasure. He knew he had found it when Tristan shouted out and gripped the sheets tightly in his hands. Changing angles, Caleb continued to thrust into the man, setting a punishing pace. The need to orgasm was riding him hard, and he reached down to palm Tristan’s cock once more, pulling in long strokes.
“Caleb! Please! More, I need more!” the man babbled.
“What do you need, baby. Tell me, and I will give it to you,” Caleb gritted out.
“Bite me! Please!” Tristan replied.
Shocked at the request, Caleb stilled for a moment before resuming his thrusts. Reaching forward, he pulled Tristan up with a hand on his chest.
The change in positions tightened his mate’s chute and increased Caleb’s pleasure. He ran his hand over the man’s nipple, twisting and pulling as he ran his tongue over the nape of his neck. Tristan reached down and gripped his thighs as he panted out, close to the edge. He needed the man to bite him desperately.
When Caleb finally bit down, Tristan could feel a bolt of electricity shoot through his body, triggering his third orgasm. It felt as if his body was on fire as he rode the waves of pleasure and pain. Behind him, he could hear Caleb growl from deep in his chest as he found his own release.
