Fredo gave Angelina his full attention, licked his lower lip, and gave her a soft smile. “You know Shane pretty well,” he said, feeling a bit jealous, yet he thought about what he’d walked in on. His brother Castle kissing Angelina. It aroused him, excited him, but also made him hope she was interested in all of them.
“Not really that well, Fredo. I hear a lot of talk about his daredevil ways though. Stoli mentioned some crazy stunts Shane and his brothers have pulled for fun.” She took a sip from her drink. She smelled so good, and he liked being right next to her like this, and with his brothers surrounding her. As a few guys passed by, he felt encouraged that she was with them and not some other guys. Men talked about women around town, and Angelina came up a lot, and especially because she was single.
“What kind of stories did he share? Because I guarantee we got better ones,” Vander said and snickered.
“Oh really? You’ve known Shane and them long?” she asked.
“Years, doll. We go way back and to our military days, young, cocky, and when dying wasn’t ever a thought or worry since we were so damn gung-ho,” he replied.
“Speak for yourself, Vander. The rest of us are still pretty gung-ho,” Fredo teased.
“Maybe a bit, but not cocky. Cocky gets you hurt or dead,” Vander replied.
“So what was the story Stoli shared?” Castle asked her.
She licked her lower lip, and Fredo saw his brother Castle caressing her thigh. His interest went up another notch, but he leaned back, turning slightly to listen to her speak. She was breathtaking and smelled so good. She was feminine and classy, as well as physically fit, which appealed to him. He could see the definition in her arms through the snug-fitting sweater she wore.
“Well, he told me a story about a bunch of the guys hanging out at a rodeo and how Shane got challenged by some guys who were bull riders. One thing led to another and he got onto a bull and rode it. Apparently for quite some time and he had to jump off. Meanwhile he never did anything like that before,” she said to them.
Niko chuckled. “We were there,” he said and she widened her eyes.
“Sure as shit were, and he wasn’t the only crazy bastard to get up on a wild bull and show up those bull riders. Damn, that was one hell of a night,” Niko said to her.
“You were all there? Who else rode the bull?” she asked and they were silent. Fredo gave her hand a tap, she looked at him, and he nodded toward Castle. Her jaw dropped, and she turned to look at Castle who sipped his beer and wasn’t making eye contact.
“Castle? No way,” she said to him.
Castle gave Fredo a look that had him snorting. Angelina turned slightly toward Castle.
“Were you out of your mind? Did you get hurt?” she asked.
“I’m here, aren’t I?” he asked her and gently gripped her chin. She stared at him, and Fredo didn’t have to look at Niko and Vander to know they were watching her and their brother.
“Why?” he asked.
“You don’t seem the type.”
“What type is that?”
“A daredevil, a man needing to prove his masculinity by doing something dangerous?”
“How about a man doing something challenging and fun, and on a dare?” he asked and winked. She chuckled.
“Was there alcohol involved too?” she teased.
“Maybe,” he replied softly, leaned closer, and kissed her lips. Fredo held his breath. The atmosphere changed so much in that moment, but then as Castle softly released her lips and she looked so shocked and scared, Fredo had a bad feeling in his gut.
“Why did you do that?” she asked, voice cracking.
Fredo watched Castle lick his lower lip and hold her gaze.
“You’re just so hard to resist, Angelina.”
She brought her fingertips to her lips and shook her head slowly. “I can’t,” she whispered.
Castle cupped her jaw and cheek as she lowered her hand. “I’m just going to speak my mind, from the gut here, and ask, does your hesitation have something to do with a bad experience?”
Fredo tightened up and released a breath through his nostrils. The way Angelina turned a nice shade of red indicated his brother was onto something. Of course Fredo began to imagine crazy things, especially after the recent incident with Liz.
“I think it’s best that we remain friends only.”
“Not going to happen after two kisses like what we shared,” he replied.
“Who was he?” Fredo asked. Castle released her jaw and cheek, and she glanced at Fredo but couldn’t look him in the eyes. It was a sure indication that she was going to lie or, at minimum, downplay the situation and her response.
“Is he still a threat to you?” Vander asked in that deep, hard tone of his. Angelina reacted to that as she stirred in her seat.
“Let me up,” she said to Castle.
“Don’t run from us,” he said to her.
“Us?” she asked.
“Hell yes, us,” Niko said, and in that moment, it confirmed their combined interest in Angelina. She was it. She was the woman they would pursue as a team. Fredo covered her thigh with his hand.
She turned toward him.
“Don’t go. Let’s talk some more. We aren’t bad men,” he said to her.
“Is that how it works around here? A woman is just chosen by a team of men who interrogate her and try to get her to feel like she needs protection?”
“Don’t even go there. You know that isn’t how it works at all,” Vander said to her.
She looked at him, pursed her lips, and then closed her eyes and exhaled. “I don’t want to date anyone. I don’t want any trouble.” She opened her eyes.
“You think we expected to come here and see you with Castle? Kissing Castle, and feel aroused and interested too? It wasn’t planned, yet here we are, talking, getting to know one another, and the interest is growing,” Vander added.
“If you’re not ready to talk about him, we won’t push, but that conversation will definitely happen. It needs to happen because there can be no lies, no secrets if we were to take this chance,” Castle said to her. She swallowed hard, and Fredo could see the tears in her eyes.
“I’m not ready for this, for any type of relationship with a man or men. I’m sorry, and you need to understand and accept this.”
“Take me then. All of you. I’m ready,” she said and that was it. Vander gave a nod. Fredo and Niko stepped back, and Castle and Vander began to kiss along her skin, finger her pussy, and then Castle licked along her asshole. “Oh.” She gripped onto his shoulder and Vander’s head.
“Let go,” Vander said, and Castle moved as Vander lifted her up and lowered her to the bed. Castle kissed her tenderly as Vander removed his pants and stroked his cock. He looked at Fredo and Niko who were completely naked and ready to claim Angelina.
Castle released her lips and kissed along her breasts. Fredo lowered to kiss her next and explore her other breast and then down her hip, across the tattoo, and then to her cunt. He plunged his tongue into her and then pulled up. “So delicious. I can feast on that sweet pussy for hours,” he said, and Niko lifted her thigh a little higher and caressed her muscles. “You have got to be the most fit, and sexiest woman I’ve ever laid eyes on. Once I make love to you, honey, watch out. I am going to be even more possessive and protective of you,” he said and lowered down to suckle against her inner thigh. She giggled and kicked, shoved at him, laughing, only for the guys to pull back, and Vander flipped her to her belly. He pressed over her and spread her arms above her head.
“Ticklish, huh?” he asked.
“Oh my God!” She moaned, and he chuckled warm breath against her ear.
“Spread those thighs. Feel how hard you got me,” he said to her and she did. She spread them, and he rocked his cock against her cunt and asshole from behind. He ran his palms along her arms and pressed them up and above her. He kneaded her flesh, explored every dip and ridge of muscles. She was super sexy and defined. “Your back muscles are impressive.”
“Her ass is impressive,” Fredo said and they chuckled.
Vander kissed along her spine and then down to her crack. He stroked her pussy and then licked her asshole.
“Oh, Vander. Oh God I…oh.” She moaned as he slid a slick finger into her asshole.
“Sweet Jesus, I’m going to come before I’m even inside of her,” Niko said and they all agreed.
“Then I guess we better claim our woman,” Vander said and eased his finger from her ass, kissed and nipped her ass cheeks, and then flipped her back onto her back. Her blonde hair spread over the comforter. Her big, full breasts rocked side to side as he maneuvered his hips between her thighs. Castle lifted her arm above her head and licked along her inner arm then nipped her breast on her right as Niko did the same on her left. She wiggled.
“Easy now,” Vander whispered. She held his gaze as she moaned, lips parted, and he aligned his cock with her cunt and began to push right into her.
She teared up a moment and he paused. “No, no, do it. It feels incredible. I want you to. I want all of you,” she said, and he thrust all the way in. They both moaned. The others stepped back, and he stroked into her slowly, deeply.
He caressed her hair from her face and held her gaze as he gripped her hip. “You feel incredible. You’re mine, baby.”
“And you’re mine,” she said, and he lowered down and kissed her.
When she held on to his head and neck and countered his thrusts, he could feel their bond grow stronger and their connection increase. She was it. He knew it. Vander never felt so connected and into a woman in his life. He was too old for games, too experienced for fucking around, and he wanted more and she was it.
“More, Vander. I’m fine. Please, I need more, and then all of you,” she said and that was it for him. He thrust and stroked into her, kissed her skin, tugged on her nipples, gripped her hip, and stroked as deeply as he could, trying to ease that itch, that need within his core. He felt his dick harden, sensed her coming as her inner pussy muscles milked his cock and set him free.
“Angelina!” he roared and came, felt dizzy from the effects, and lowered over her to hug her, kiss her, and have their moment. She panted for breath. He clenched her jaw and stared down into her gorgeous green eyes. “My brothers need you now too. Can you handle them?”
“We’re going to find out,” she said, and he winked, kissed her lips, then eased off of her and let Castle take his place.
