Deputy Eddie Fletcher slowed his cruiser and then pulled over to the side of the road at the spot where someone had reported seeing a car in the ditch. He couldn’t immediately see the vehicle, and it made him wonder if it had been a crank call, but he needed to look anyway.
He grabbed his CB mic and hit the button. “Agnes, this is Deputy Fletcher. I’m on scene at the report of that car in the ditch on Lower River Road. I’ll be out of vehicle for ten.”
“Copy that, Deputy.”
It seemed kind of ridiculous to tell someone he’d be out of his car for a few minutes when he was merely looking for a car in the ditch, but Sheriff John Riley was fanatical about following procedure. He wanted to make sure he always knew where his deputies were in case there was trouble.
Eddie checked his pistol before climbing out of the vehicle. He walked several yards in each direction, looking for the vehicle. When he didn’t spot anything on his side of the road, he crossed to the other side and started looking again.
He didn’t spot a car, but a flash of red in all the green trees and shrubbery caught his attention. Eddie walked closer, trying to get a better look. A set of blue eyes peeked at him through a mop of chestnut curls.
Eddie squatted down to get to the kid’s eye level. He estimated the kid couldn’t be more than three or four, maybe younger. He was clearly frightened. The blood all over his shirt was a good indication that he had reason to be frightened.
“Hello,” Eddie said softly. “I’m Deputy Eddie. Can you tell me your name?” He pointed to the gold badge on his uniform shirt. “See, I’m a police officer.”
Those smoky blue eyes were filled with trepidation as they followed where Eddie was pointing and stared at the golden badge.
Eddie smiled. “I’m one of the good guys, kind of like Batman.”
Those frightened eyes moved back to his face for a moment before the kid turned and darted back through the trees.
“Hey.” Eddie jumped to his feet and ran after the little guy. He had to dodge several branches as he tried to follow the kid through the woods and down a steep slope. He paused near the bottom when he spotted the car. The front in was crushed and wrapped around a tree, which seemed to be the only thing keeping it from sliding farther down the slope.
The kid stood next to the open door of the vehicle, his hands clenched together. He watched Eddie cautiously, but with a hint of desperation as if he was waiting for Eddie to save him, or whoever was inside the vehicle.
Eddie moved closer.
“Peas hep Cawy.”
Eddie squinted as he tried to decipher those words. Peez hep...oh. “Cary? You need me to help Cary?”
Chestnut curls flopped as the kid nodded.
The car jerked and slid a little when the kid tried to climb into it.
“No!” Eddie jumped forward and grabbed him. He turned and set him down on the ground and pointed up the hill. “Go stand up there. I don’t want to have to worry about you while I’m trying to help Cary.”
Eddie waited until the little waif had climbed back up the hill then turned back to the car. He grabbed an overhanging branch and used it as leverage as he lowered himself down far enough to see inside the vehicle.
Damn. There was someone hurt inside.
Eddie grabbed the mic attached to his uniform. “Agnes, I’m going to need EMTs and a tow truck at my location.”
“Copy that, Deputy. Code red or...”
“Hold on.” Eddie reached in and felt the guy’s neck. He breathed a sigh of relief when he felt a steady pulse under his fingertips. “Yeah, Agnes, code red. This guy is alive, but there’s a lot of blood. Head injury for sure. I can’t tell what else.”
Agnes’s voice was a little quieter when she replied. “Copy that, Deputy.”
Eddie winced when he glanced back up the hill. “Agnes, I’m also going to need someone out here from social services.”
He swallowed tightly. This was always the hard part of the job. “There’s a kid, Agnes.”
“No, I don’t think he’s injured, but it’s hard to tell. He’s covered in blood. I’m just not sure whose it is.”
“Copy that, Deputy.” The sadness in Agnes’s voice mirrored the sadness Eddie was feeling.
He had been on the scene of more accidents than he cared to remember, and none of them good. The ones involving kids were the ones that tore at his soul. Young lives cut short or traumatized. It was never good.
A soft moan from the interior of the car drew Eddie’s attention back to the car. He leaned in as far as he dared and tried to assess the damage. The guy had a huge gash on his forehead that would need stitches at the very least. That would explain the blood. Head wounds bled a lot. Eddie just hoped there wasn’t a fractured skull to go along with that gash.
There was also some blood on the man’s leg, but Eddie couldn’t tell where it was coming from. He hoped it was simply blood from the head injury, but he didn’t think his wish was going to be granted.
“Hey,” he said when the guy’s eyelids began to flutter. “My name is Deputy Fletcher. You’ve been in a car accident.” Duh. Like the man couldn’t tell that already. “Paramedics are on the way.”
Eddie glanced up the small incline. The kid was squatted down next to the base of a tree, his thumb in his mouth. His eyes were intent, watchful.
“Little guy?” Eddie asked as he looked back to the guy pinned in the car. “Red shirt?”
“He looks fine. There some blood on him, but I think it’s your blood. I don’t see any injuries on him.”
The sigh of relief the man let out was heavy.
“Can you tell me your name?”
Cary’s breath stuttered in his chest when he straddled Eddie’s thighs and felt the man’s hard cock press up against him through their clothes. That was a really impressive bulge, one Cary wanted to become better acquainted with.
He pushed Eddie’s shirt off his shoulders and then slid his hands down over the man’s chest again. “I guess you kind of have to keep in shape in your line of work.”
“Do you work out?”
“A few times a week. The sheriff put in a gym down at the station. We all use it.”
“It shows.” And then some. The chest on the man was a thing of art, all sculpted muscles and tanned skin. Cary wanted to lick every inch. So, he did. He leaned down and swiped his tongue over a large expanse of Eddie’s skin.
The man groaned and clutched at his hips. “Cary, do you know what you’re doing?”
“I’m trying to seduce you.” Cary grinned up at him. “Is it working?”
Oh, that honesty deserved a reward. Cary leaned down and took one of Eddie’s nipples into his mouth, sucking on it, running his tongue over it.
“Christ.” Eddie’s fingers fisted in Cary’s hair.
“Are you going to touch me?”
“Hell, yes.” Eddie pushed Cary’s shirt up and then pulled it over his head, dropping it to the floor. He stared down at Cary’s chest for a moment before leaning down and nipping at one of Cary’s nipples.
Cary hissed as he arched his chest up into the air. Pleasure shot right through his body and down to his cock when Eddie licked and nibbled at the other pert nipple. When Eddie’s hands started moving over his skin, Cary couldn’t stop himself from groaning.
He cried out in protest when Eddie leaned away from him until he felt the man’s large hands on the buttons of his jeans. Cary sucked in his bottom lip and lifted his hips when Eddie tugged them down. He was more than willing to help the whole process along.
“You’re going to have to stand for this part, baby.”
Cary slid off Eddie’s lap and shucked his jeans, grabbing the lube and condom out of his pocket and dropping them on the table. He kicked his jeans away before climbing back into Eddie’s lap. His breath stuttered when naked flesh met naked flesh. He hadn’t even realized Eddie had gotten rid of his jeans, too.
Cary’s eyes felt as if they were going to roll back into his head when Eddie’s firm fingers wrapped around his aching dick. He spread his legs as far as they would go, hoping for more.
Cary winced when two thick fingers speared his ass at the same time. It burned a lot, but the moment Eddie started wiggling them around, Cary forgot all about the burn and only felt the pleasure exploding inside of his body.
Cary grinned. “I already took care of it before I came in here.”
He knew what he wanted.
Cary grinned as he wiggled his eyebrows and held up the lube and condom. “I even brought supplies.”
“You always carry lube and condoms with you?”
“No, I stole them out of your nightstand.”
Eddie’s face flushed as he chuckled and grabbed for the lube. “Fair enough.”
Cary chuckled before demanding, “Now, fuck me.”
Cary almost forgot to breathe at the pleasure that raced through his body. It seemed as if he was just getting used to the man’s fingers pushing past his tight ring of muscles before they were pulling out.
“I love the way your body sucks me right in, Cary.” Eddie’s hand stroked over the curve of Cary’s ass before pushing his fingers in again. “It’s like you ache for me.”
“Please,” Cary pleaded.
Eddie’s fingers disappeared from Cary’s ass, and the man’s rather large cock replaced them. Cary clutched at Eddie’s shoulders as he lowered himself down and the head of Eddie’s cock slowly pushed inside of him, stretching him and filling every last inch of his ass.
Eddie stilled once he was fully inside of Cary. “Do you want my cock, Cary? Do you want me to fuck you?”
Eddie moved so slowly that Cary could feel everything from the thick head as it pressed over his sweet spot to the thickness of the man’s wide girth stretching him. It was a kind of pleasurable torture in itself.
Cary’s heart thundered in his chest when Eddie leaned back and his fingers dug into Cary’s hips. He knew what was coming. He anticipated it. He needed it. He ached for it.
Eddie started pounding into Cary. He moved fast, hard. Cary couldn’t tell if his ass was being filled or not. He just knew that his entire body felt like it was ready to combust and Eddie was the match that was going to set him off.
Eddie’s cock pulsed inside of Cary’s ass. The chair creaked beneath them as Eddie drove his cock harder and harder into Cary. When a hand encircled his cock, quickly stroking him, that was all it took for Cary.
He screamed as his entire body jerked, ecstasy ripping through every cell in his body. Ropes of cum shot from his cock and splattered between them.
“Cary!” Eddie roared as he thrust once more into Cary’s body, then again, and then he froze.
Cary groaned as Eddie’s seed filled the condom, warming inside of him. He dropped his head forward and rested it on Eddie’s shoulder. Every bone in his body felt melted, sated. “We’re definitely going to do that again.”
Cary held his breath as Eddie’s chuckle rumbled through him. He really hoped this wasn’t a one night thing. Eddie had just shaken his world to the core.
