“I know nothing in our agreement said you had to talk to me, but you’re obviously upset.”
Alex pulled off his pants and stood nude in front of Braden. His long cock hung between his legs, flaccid and perfect. “The mayor wanted to fuck this afternoon, and I may have done something bad to get out of it.”
“What?” Braden asked.
“There was a girl, a nobody really, who worked with me at the station. She was attracted to me and came in my office, stripped naked, and grinded herself on my dick.” Alex rubbed his forehead. “Hell, I knew it would make the mayor back off, so I kissed her. Let her get lipstick on my collar and her arousal on my crotch.”
Braden leaned against the doorjamb. “What’s so bad about that?”
“I think the mayor had her killed.”
It didn’t surprise Braden in the least, but he saw the confusion and hurt on Alex’s face. He really was shielded from the notoriety of the mayor. Braden pushed away from the doorjamb and walked across the bedroom. He still wore the red shorts Alex had given him and nothing else.
“Go take a shower. You’ll feel better.” Braden collected his clothing and stared at him. “The mayor is a very dangerous person. With the serum, you have little power against him. I hope you see that. I hope you understand that every meeting you have is as dangerous for you as it is for those around you.”
Alex rubbed the tip of his tongue along his teeth. “And that’s what you’re here for? To take him out?”
Braden glanced down at the clothing in his hands. “They have Rhett’s sister in a lab somewhere.”
Alex’s face filled with more concern. “Please tell me you’re joking.”
“No.” Braden swallowed. “They took her after they destroyed the serum. The army busts our balls all the time, but they said they do horrible things to her. Worse than any one of us can imagine.” Braden licked his lips. “Erik is part of it too. He has his own reasons. We’ve got more than fifty wolves planning to fight on the full moon. It’s not just me, Alex. We all care about our kind. We care about the future of our kids and getting innocent wolves out of danger.”
Alex shook his head. “You think I don’t?”
“I think you’ve forgotten where you came from. Maybe it’s the serum or maybe it’s whatever you went through. I don’t know. The reality is they need to be taken down. The wolves cannot go on living like this. If we win, great. If we don’t, you can’t say that we didn’t try.”
“They’re my friends too.”
Braden gave him a sad smile. “Were. You don’t know us anymore, and I’m not sure you ever will again.”
He turned to take care of the laundry. The stains were noticeable, and dabbing them with water and a little detergent helped. Braden didn’t know what Alex thought, but he didn’t want him in the middle of it. If anyone went against the mayor, it had to be Braden. He’d never forgive himself if the mayor did something to Alex.
“Hey,” Alex called. Braden turned and glanced over at Alex from the kitchen sink. “You’re wrong. I do fucking know you. I know that when you were a kid you were scared of monsters eating you in the lake. It took me two fucking years to get you to go swimming with me, and even then, I had to float you around on my back because you wouldn’t go out into the water by yourself. I know everything there is to know about you and then some. The first time you kissed me was a dare. The first time we had sex you told me that we could fuck like that forever. As far as I know, I’m the only one who knows what you feel like. Am I wrong?”
Braden stared at him a moment before going back to the laundry. “No, you’re not wrong. I told you that we bonded. I have no desire to be with anyone else. It’s…not possible. You, you’re human now. You don’t have the same reaction I do. It’s different. We’re different.”
“Don’t insinuate that I don’t care about this as much as you.” Alex’s whisper made Braden stop and look over at him. “In this world, you have to learn to play nice with the enemy to get what you want. I’ve gotten good at living in this world.”
Braden set the clothing in the sink. “I’m sorry. We’ve been apart for so long it’s difficult for me to accept that you haven’t move on. That you haven’t forgotten about us.”
“What do you want me to do, Braden?” Alex shook his head. “It’s a two-way street. You texted me, and I came.” He pointed at him. “Don’t think for one second that I’d forgotten anything.”
“You don’t get to scare me like that.” Alex propped his hands up on his hips. “I woke up, and I thought something had happened to you.”
It was on the tip of Braden’s tongue to apologize, but instead, he narrowed his eyes at Alex. “Fuck you. You’re the one who got caught. You’re the one who chose to take the serum. Don’t give me some bullshit about scaring you when you did the same fucking thing to me.”
“Oh, I did the same fucking thing?” Alex came toward him. Braden moved slightly, preparing to defend himself as Alex grabbed his legs and pulled him off the sofa. He covered him with his body, pressing him into the hardwood floor as his mouth claimed Braden’s. His knee moved between Braden’s legs as he brushed his hard cock along Braden’s thigh. He’d fought the kiss long enough. He gripped Alex’s head and gave as good as he got.
Alex moaned as Braden bit his lower lip. He’d pulled on a pair of shorts but wore nothing else. Braden slid his hands along Alex’s sides, feeling the hard muscles and how hot he felt in his arms. He wanted him inside now. No playing games. That was for later when they’d had at least an hour or two of hard-core fucking to get the need out of their systems. Braden slipped his hands into Alex’s shorts and cupped his ass, dragging him forward so that Alex’s cock rubbed against his own. Fuck that was hot. Everything about the man was hot.
Alex sat back momentarily to pull Braden’s shirt off while he struggled to push Alex’s shorts down. They were tangled in clothing and limbs, which only spiked the urgency. Braden fought to get his shirt off then focused on pushing Alex’s pants down so he could wrap his fingers around his fat cock. Alex gave a slight grin when he’d succeeded in stroking him and busied himself with tugging Braden’s shorts down.
“You know I’m going to have to leave you to get some lube.” Alex leaned down to nibble along Braden’s neck.
“Go.” Braden let him go. Alex grinned down at him before pushing up from the floor. He kicked off his shorts and turned, giving Braden a nice view of his perfect ass as he walked out of the room. Braden took a deep breath, trying to calm himself down. If he wasn’t careful, he’d end up shifting, and that would be a fucking disaster.
Alex returned as quickly as he’d left and set the lube on the coffee table beside them. He tugged Braden’s pants off and tossed them to the side. He spread Braden’s legs wide enough that his hips could fit between them.
“I need this tight little hole, but I’m in no condition to take it slow.” Alex rubbed the puckered hole with the tip of his finger. “I can’t wait to feel your hot ass wrapped around my cock.”
“Don’t.” Braden pulled him down so that Alex’s warmth surrounded him. “I need you to. Hard. And deep. Fuck me.”
Alex kissed him as he reached for the lube. Squirting some on his dick, he fisted himself a few times to smooth it out. Then he pressed the plump head to Braden’s tiny hole. The stretching was intense. His ass burned, and he groaned as Alex pushed deeper, claiming him. It felt too fucking good.
Braden dropped his head back on a gasp, taking every inch of Alex’s cock inside him. As promised, he didn’t take him slowly. He withdrew, barely giving him time to breathe, and shoved back in, going hard and deep just like Braden wanted. Alex propped himself up, each of his hands poised beside Braden’s shoulders as he thrust inside him.
Every thrust hit his gland, and Braden worked his hole around him, squeezing his cock as Alex pushed in.
“I want to feel you come inside me,” Braden whispered in his ear. He bit his earlobe before he flicked it with the tip of his tongue. “Your big cock is hitting my gland over and over. I don’t know how much longer I can last.”
