“May I help you?” a friendly voice came from his right.
Maxi turned to look at the voice and liked what he saw. A cutie of about his same height of five foot ten stood behind the counter smiling at him. Maxi took in a breath through his nose and confirmed this kid was a wolf. He was a nicely toned hundred and twenty pounds tops, with long sandy blond hair just past his shoulders, with the prettiest amber eyes. “Well, hello. And aren’t you just fucking adorable,” Maxi purred as he stepped up to the counter.
The cutie blushed and gave him another smile. “Thank you. So, is there something I can get for you today?”
“I came to town looking for someone, but I wouldn’t mind taking a tumble with you before I settle down. Although, you grab me as a bottom, and I really like bottoming myself if you know what I mean? But I guess we could work something out.”
“Um...thank you? I think. I’m flattered and all, but I’m taken,” the cutie said nervously.
“Too bad. So, are you taken as in a boyfriend, or taken as in mated?” Maxi asked in a whisper. The cutie’s eyes widened slightly and he leaned toward Maxi and took a whiff of his own, then pulled back.
“Mated,” he answered.
“Well, hot damn and good for you. I hope he’s as cute as you. Is he a darling?”
Maxi watched as the cutie’s eyes lit up and the smile on his face had him beaming. “Yes. My Lexi is the best mate in the world.”
“Well, he must be to put a look like that on your face. Good for you, sugar. I’m Maxi by the way. Maximilian Chambers.” Maxi stretched out his hand toward the cutie.
“Hi, Maxi. I’m Bailey Angel,” Bailey introduced himself, shaking Maxi’s hand.
“And your name is even adorable. Wait did you say Angel as in the Angel Pack Angels?”
Bailey laughed. “Yes. Lexi is an enforcer for the alpha.”
“Is he the alpha’s brother?” Maxi asked in excitement.
“Not by blood, no. But they have been together for a very long time. Over two hundred years actually. I know you’re not a wolf. I can scent that you’re a shifter, but none that I have ever met before. Before Micah became Alpha Prime and leader of all the paranormals, the inner circle of a wolf pack would always take on the alpha’s last name. But now that Micah and the council have done away with a lot of those old rules, they can keep their own names now,” Bailey explained.
“I have so many questions for you. Let’s go with the most obvious first. Now that the rules have changed, why hasn’t your man taken back his last name?”
“None of Micah’s inner circle have. They have all been together forever and they’re family. They like having the last name of Angel.”
“That says a lot about Alpha Angel. So, you know him, of course. Do you also know the new council?” Maxi asked as he leaned his hip against the counter.
“Oh yes. I know all of them. They are part of my family.”
“Wow. So, is Micah as sexy as I’ve heard he is?” Maxi whispered.
Bailey chuckled. “Yes, Micah is very sexy, but not as sexy as my Lexi.”
“Oh hell, boyfriend, of course you would say that,” Maxi replied and slapped Bailey’s hand playfully.
“So, Maxi, are you new to Sanctuary or just passing through?”
“Well, I’m a ring-tailed cat looking for a safe place to live. I just moved here yesterday. I was granted permission by the beta. I came looking for my mates. And a job.”
“I don’t know how to help you find your mates, but I may be able to help you with the job. What do you do? What type of work are you looking for?” Bailey asked.
“I’m an artist. Glasswork mainly. That’s my specialty. But, unfortunately, I don’t get paid unless my pieces sell, so until that happens I have done everything from hairdressing, to waiting tables, to being a tour guide. I’ll take pretty much any job that can keep me fed as I work on my art and sell some pieces. I’m not picky.”
“How good are you at making coffee?” Bailey smiled.
“Pretty good actually. I worked at a Starbucks in San Francisco for over five years. I haven’t done it in a few years, but they say it’s like riding a bike. Once you learn you never forget. I don’t actually know how true that is because I have never ridden a bike before, but I think I can still sling the brew.”
“I’ve been looking for some extra help around here. Two of my waitresses left in the past year when they found their mates and moved away. I have already filled one of the positions, but I could really use one more if you’re interested?”
“Really? Me, a waitress? I can’t wait!” Maxi said enthusiastically, then laughed.
Bailey snorted as he chuckled. “No. It’s basically behind the counter only. Sometimes people come in to stay for a while, so we go over and ask if they need anything else. Most of the time everyone just comes to the counter and gets their own. The hours can be hectic sometimes, and cleaning is part of the job.”
“Trying to scare me away?” Maxi teased. “Only kidding. That’s not a problem.”
“Good, then you’re hired. Can you start tomorrow morning, nine o’clock?”
“I’ll be here, boss.”
“Welcome to Sanctuary,” Bailey added with a smile.
“Does both of our hands on you feel good, little sprite?” Travis asked in a whisper against his lips.
“Oh, fuck yes. Being the cream in the middle of this cookie is better than being the chip,” Maxi answered breathlessly.
Travis and Valor both chuckled. “What does that mean, mate?” Valor asked and nipped at the side of his neck again.
“I love chocolate chip cookies. Not too big on cream-filled ones, but maybe I need to reassess that thought, because being the cream is fucking fantastic.”
“See now, I love the cream. Especially the kind I can make shoot from my beautiful lovers,” Valor replied in a husky voice. The vibration of it against his flesh had Maxi’s cock weeping with need.
“Someone likes the idea of you tasting his cream, Valor. The scent of your arousal is making my wolf need a taste of that cream, as well, little sprite,” Travis said, then dropped to his knees before Maxi.
Valor stopped stroking his shaft and Maxi felt Travis’s hand wrap around the base right before a wet tongue lapped across the tip. He moaned from the pleasure it gave him and he pushed his hips forward, wanting more. Travis didn’t disappoint. He took the tip between his lips and sucked gently as he speared his tongue into the small slit, pulling more of his essence from Maxi’s body. Maxi thought his head was about to explode from the attention of his two mates, and he didn’t think it could get any better, but then it did.
Valor whispered strange words against his ear and he felt his hole stretch. The act made him cry out. The blunt tip of a finger pressed against his tight hole and Maxi wanted it buried deep inside him. “Do you want me here, little one?” Valor’s hot breath panted across his cheek.
“Yes. I want to feel you inside me,” Maxi groaned.
Valor pushed harder until his finger breached Maxi’s opening, and his fae lover didn’t stop. He slid fully inside Maxi and his finger brushed against his sweet spot. “Holy fucking cupcakes, that’s good! I need more! Slide another in,” Maxi pleaded.
Valor pressed another in beside the first and thrust them in and out as he scissored them, stretching Maxi’s hole.
“Oh, yes! Fuck! Your throat is like a soft bun around my hotdog, Travis!”
Travis chuckled around Maxi’s cock and the vibrations sent a shiver racing through his body and his sac pulled up close and tight. He was going to come soon and he didn’t want to. His mates were playing his body like an instrument and he didn’t want these feelings to stop. It had been too long since he had felt a lover’s mouth, hands, and cock bring him pleasure. And it had been even longer since he felt wanted. If he came too soon, this would be over and he wanted it to go on forever.
The feel of a large wet tip against his hole brought Maxi out of his thoughts and back into the moment. He knew what was coming and he wanted it more than air. Maxi tightened his hold on Travis’s shoulder and reached back to grab onto Valor’s hip, steadying himself. Valor pressed forward and Maxi cried out, loving the slight burn of the stretch as Valor’s cock broke through the first ring of muscle.
Valor tightened his arms around Maxi’s torso, holding him up as he slowly impaled Maxi inch by inch until that long, fat cock filled him. “Fucking hell, you feel so good,” Valor growled, and began to thrust his hips. Travis held onto his hips and became still as he let Maxi’s cock slide in and out of his throat from Valor’s movements.
Maxi thought he was going to shatter from the euphoria he felt from his mates attentions. Nothing in his life before had felt this good. This right. Valor quickened his pace, fucking Maxi with abandon. His balls were aching for release, but something was holding him back from jumping over that cliff into oblivion. Then Valor pinched his nipple at the exact same time Travis swallowed around the tip of his cock, taking it fully down his throat. That was it. That’s all he needed. Maxi threw his head back against Valor’s shoulder, tightened his grip on both his mates and let out a feral growl as his seed shot from his body and slid down Travis’s waiting throat.
Warmth filled his hole a moment later and Maxi knew his fae mate had come deep inside him. “Yes! Mother Fate, yes!” Valor said through clenched teeth as his body stiffened around Maxi.
Travis swallowed every drop Maxi gave him, then licked his way back to the tip, cleaning him. Travis stood and grabbed Maxi’s hips, spinning him around to face Valor. “Hold on tight, little sprite. I need to fuck that perfect ass, too,” Travis said in a voice that sounded like half animal. Valor slid his arms under Maxi’s pits and wrapped them around his back, as Maxi laid his head on Valor’s chest. Travis drove inside him in one thrust, filling him. There was no pain and the slide was easy, as Valor’s seed slicked the way.
Travis fucked him with abandon as grunts, groans, and growls escaped his lips. Maxi felt a slight pinch on his hips and knew Travis’s claws had come out and were puncturing his flesh, but he couldn’t care less. The pleasure Travis was giving him was worth the small sting of pain.
Travis thrust harder and faster, claiming Maxi’s ass with his cock. Even after just coming a few minutes ago, Maxi’s cock became rock hard and his balls grew heavy again, needing another release. Maxi tightened his hold on Valor as another orgasm slammed through his body as his hole filled with Travis’s warm seed.
