“Just act normal and focus on the fact that he is a friend and has been supportive,” Brooklyn told her. Amber nodded her head and hurried to answer the door.
She took a deep breath as she took in the sight of Ledger standing in her doorway. Over six feet two, dark-black, crew-cut hair, and serious, brown eyes. She could see a tattoo of some sort with small Chinese lettering the size of a quarter on his neck. He was wearing a black Filling Station T-shirt and smiling at her.
“Hey, how are you?” he asked and leaned forward to kiss her cheek.
She placed her hands on his arms and closed her eyes. He smelled so good. She immediately pulled back and then motioned for him to come inside.
“Hi, Ledger,” Brooklyn greeted him and stood up from the couch. Antonia did the same thing.
“Hey, Brooklyn, Antonia. Heading to the Station?” he asked then as they shook hands.
“Yes we are,” Brooklyn replied, and Antonia stepped closer to Amber and smiled.
“We’ll talk more later. Give baby Ella a kiss for me,” Antonia said and hugged Amber. Amber hugged her tight. “Thanks. For everything.”
“No problem,” she replied, then Brooklyn hugged Amber and said goodbye. “See you in about an hour, Ledger,” Brooklyn teased, pointing at him.
“Yes, ma’am. I’ll be there,” he said and Amber closed the door behind them once they left.
She walked back into the room. “Can I get you something to drink?” she asked, heading to the small kitchen.
He walked closer and stood by the counter.
“Water good?” she asked. He nodded.
“How was the trip?” he asked her and she exhaled, then placed the water bottle down onto the counter. “What’s wrong?”
“Oh, it was a hell of a trip. I’m glad to be back in Repose,” she said.
“Me, too. I kind of missed ya,” he teased and gave her a wink.
He stared at her, and it was the strangest sensation. She felt giddy inside, like some teenage girl with a crush on the older, experienced soldier.
She felt her cheeks blush as his eyes grazed over her breasts. She reached up to push some strands of hair behind her ear, forgetting about her wrist.
“What the hell happened to your wrist?” he asked and was next to her, pulling her hand gently into his.
“Nothing. Just a stupid situation.”
He looked at her, squinting his eyes, and she felt her heart racing. He was so attractive, so caring and perfect.
“These are finger marks. Explain,” he demanded.
She gulped and tried to pull her hand back. He stepped closer, placed one hand on her hip, towering over her against the counter. He took her bad wrist and held it against his chest.
“What happened? I knew something was wrong. I heard it in your voice. Hell, I could tell you were hiding something in your reply texts. Talk to me, Amber.”
She stared up into his dark brown eyes. She felt she could trust him. He was distant, not receiving of compliments, and definitely avoided confrontations.
“It’s a long, stupid story.”
“I’m all ears,” he said.
“This looks sore,” he said to her as he looked at her wrist. When he brought it closer to his mouth and kissed the bruising, she felt like fainting. He was so sexy and hot, compassionate, and caring. She stared at him as his lips touched the bruising, but his eyes remained locked onto hers. She felt petite, feminine, protected, and the thoughts running through her head scared her. She wished Ledger had been with her at that party.
He turned her hand over and continued to kiss the bruising, and then up her arm, making her shiver with goose bumps.
“Ledger,” she whispered.
“I’m here for you. You’re not alone. I want to help. I want to protect you.”
She pulled her hand away, but couldn’t step back. She was wedged against the counter, and he took advantage of her position.
He griped her hips, but instead of being scared, she felt aroused, which shocked her even worse than being scared.
“Someone hurt you, and I want you to tell me who and whether they’ll be coming to hurt you more.”
The sound of baby Ella waking from her nap snapped her back into the present.
“Let me get, Ella,” she said, and he slowly released her.
He stopped her by her good wrist.
“I expect the truth. Seeing bruises on your perfect skin is unacceptable,” he said, and she knew he was serious. She walked through the living room to the small bedroom to get Ella. She needed a diaper change so she did that first, knowing that Ledger stood there, watching her.
“Did you have a nice nap? I bet you’re happy to be off that bus and that train.” She lifted Ella up and hugged her after she changed her.
Ella squealed and then reached her arms out to Ledger.
Ledger’s whole face lit up.
“Hey, beautiful. I missed you,” he said to Ella and caressed her hair. Ella grabbed onto his arm. Amber felt Ledger’s hand on her hip, then around her mid-section as he stepped closer. It was an odd sensation. She longed for moments like this with Gage, even after he’d been gone so long. Now, with Ledger here and Ella responding to him so well, she couldn’t help but to fantasize about being cared for by another man, but then Teddy’s words filled her thoughts—that no man would want her for more than sex. That they wouldn’t want the responsibility of a child that wasn’t theirs.
“I need to feed her,” she said, and when she glanced up, over her shoulder, Ledger squinted at her.
“I really did miss the two of you. You’re both important to me.”
“You trust us, Amber?” Jaret asked. She nodded so quickly he smirked.
He ran his finger from the tip of her nose, over her lips, and down to her cleavage.
“With words,” he stated, and she remembered Kye’s rules and smiled.
“Yes, Jaret, I trust all of you.”
“Good. We go as far as you’re ready for.”
“I want all of you. I don’t want to be afraid. I don’t want to feel alone and scared. I don’t know what will come of this, but I want more of what you all make me feel.”
“We want that, too,” Kye said to her and then sat on the edge of the bed. Jed sprawled out right next to her.
“Then tonight we make love to you, and we don’t hold back. We want this, and we’ve waited long enough to know it’s meant to be,” Jaret said to her.
“Show us you want this, too,” Jed said to her. She knew what they wanted and with shaking fingers, she reached for the material of the towel and un-tucked the top, letting the towel fall to the sides. Their words of appreciation and the feel of their hands on her was amazing.
Jaret fell to his knees and lifted her thighs up over his shoulders. He didn’t hesitate to lick her pussy and alternate a finger and his tongue inside of her.
Jed licked across one nipple as he raised her arm above her head while Kye kissed her other arm, then raised it above her head before he began to feast on her other breast.
“Oh, God, this is crazy,” she said, feeling about ready to come from three men feasting on her together. When Jaret pulled his fingers from her cunt and licked her from pussy to anus, back and forth, he used his tongue and then his fingers, eliciting a cry of pleasure as he thrust into her cunt and ass.
“So beautiful and giving. We’re going to take you together, baby. The way it will always be,” Jed said to her, then kissed her on the mouth. She felt out of control and wild with need. She wanted more, and when Jed released her lips, she tilted her pussy up and down on Jaret’s fingers.
“She’s ready. Hell, I’m more then fucking ready,” Jaret said aloud and eased his fingers from her body.
“Condoms?” Jed said to him.
“Got them here,” Kye stated, and she shook her head.
“No need for them. I have an IUD,” she told them, and Jaret unzipped his pants and pushed them off. He looked a little sore, but determined, and when his cock came into sight, she licked her lips.
“I want to taste you,” she told him.
“Oh, fuck,” Jed said, and Jaret nodded. Jaret’s eyes seemed to darken, thin veins by them pulsated, and he licked his lips as Jed and Kye released her hands.
She eased up to her knees and then had to slide back onto all fours to taste Jaret. The sight of his thick, hard thighs as she gripped them and then licked across the tip of his cock all encouraged her more. When palms slid along her ass cheeks, and then fingers pushed into her cunt and anus she shook and moaned on his cock.
“Holy God, she’s incredible,” Jed said, and Jaret grabbed a fistful of her hair and rocked his hips. She sucked more of him into her mouth and began to bob up and down as Kye and Jed fingered both holes. This was better than any fantasy she had about them. Ever.
She was rocking her hips and sucking up and down when she heard a door slam. She stopped and a hand slapped her ass.
“Keep focused on sucking his cock. Ledger’s here. We’re all together,” Jed said to her. She was shocked at how turned on getting a smack on the ass had her, and the men seemed to notice.
“Fuck, she likes her ass spanked. She’s dripping all over my fingers,” Kye told them, and Jed slapped her ass again.
“Holy fuck,” Ledger stated, standing in the doorway.
“Joining us?” Kye asked him.
“I need to shower real quick,” Ledger said but stood there in place watching them.
Jaret caressed her cheek and brought his cock to her lips again. “Don’t worry, we’ll keep her busy,” he said and she moaned as Jed and Kye stroked their fingers faster.
“I’m so hard, baby. Goddamn, that mouth is incredible. I need in, Amber. I need inside of you,” Jaret told her and eased his cock from her lips. He cupped her cheeks and kissed her deeply. She felt the bed dip, and then Jaret released her lips and stared down into her eyes.
“Are you sure?” he asked, and she knew he was giving her an out. One last attempt at ignoring this connection, and she wasn’t biting.
“Very sure.” He gave her a wink.
