“Is this her?” Vikki said.
Tobias turned and stepped around the crimson couch, and the plastic that covered it crackled as it brushed against his leg. His chest ached for the pain it was causing Vikki to see another female standing next to him in a photo, but he couldn’t stop her from seeing his past. It was a reality that he couldn’t deny, and it was his history. She’d probably been involved with other males, when she’d lived in the human world, and while he didn’t like the idea, it was also her past. They were both adults, and that meant they’d had other relationships. They just had to accept that of each other.
“She looks so much like me,” Vikki said softly.
“I know. It’s why I thought you were her. I’m sorry if this is difficult for you,” Tobias said, reaching Vikki and brushing his hand down her back.
He wanted her to know that while he’d had a life with someone else she was now everything he wanted. He brushed a kiss on the top of her head.
“She’s so beautiful,” Vikki whispered.
Tobias became aware that Lucian and Gideon had entered the living area. He glanced back at them, noticing their compassionate looks. They understood the difficulties this would create for Vikki, and gave them a gentle nod. All three males stood on the other side of the room, waiting patiently for Tobias to do what he needed to comfort Vikki.
“If this is too hard for you, we can leave,” Tobias offered.
The memories were difficult for him to deal with, so they must be trying for her. He was still worried for her mental state, and didn’t want to push her over the edge and have her suffer. As much as he needed to find the truth, he wouldn’t have her pay the price for it. On the other hand, without the truth, she’d suffer anyway.
“No. You have to remember. It’s the only way. We have to keep going,” Vikki replied.
Tobias stared down into her tear-filled eyes. Her lips curled into a painful smile, and his heart reached out for her. Her compassion was outstanding, and she’d said “we” when describing what needed to be done. She’d been with him every step of the way, and he could never show her how grateful he was that she’d not allowed him to go through this alone. She’d believed in him when he’d doubted who he was and even been the instigator of bringing him here, to his home. Pride flowed through him for his brave mate.
“Do you remember anything?” Vikki asked, wrapping her arms around his waist.
“I remember the house. Everything is familiar, but it’s not brought back memories of why I left it. I’m sorry. I was hoping for more, I suppose,” Tobias said sadly.
Gideon’s swift movement drew Tobias’s attention sharply. He watched the male dart to the window, and his deep growl echoed in the room. Tobias tensed, gripping Vikki closer to his body as he felt the caution radiate from Gideon’s body. The male was agitated, and he watched as Lucian shot to the window.
“What is it?” Tobias asked.
“We have visitors,” Gideon replied.
Gideon’s deep tone made Vikki flinch. Tobias rubbed his hand up and down her back before guiding her around the couch to exit the living area. He needed to get her away before any of the League’s guards could get near her. He was enraged, but kept it in check, not wanting to scare Vikki further.
“I thought we’d stopped them locating us when we took care of the tracker,” Luca said.
“Apparently not. They must have been following us somehow. They would never know about this place, not unless they researched Tobias and have been watching to see if he’ll return here. Maybe they knew where we were heading when they realized we were coming to Florida,” Lucian said, darting back from the window.
“We have to get out of here now. They’re coming for my mate, and I won’t allow them to take her.” Tobias growled loudly.
“They won’t, Tobias. We need to find a back way out of here. The vehicles are parked at the front of the property, and if the guards come in that way, leaving by the front door will be out of the question,” Lucian said, rounding the couch.
“At the back of the house is a rear door that leads to the garage. That has another door to the back yard. If we can get into the wooded area behind, it’ll shield us from the guards seeing us. Where’s Tarrant?” Tobias asked.
Tobias gazed down at Vikki. Her eyes were wide and fearful, and he could see her chest rise and fall rapidly. His mate was in danger, and they were inside the house, with only Luca having the ability to disappear out of there. With their location confirmed, it would only take moments for Harvey to find his way to Tobias’s home. If he arrived with Kion, then the power of the Order would be seriously flawed. While they were all strong and fast, memories of how he’d fought with Harvey still left doubt in Tobias’s mind. Would he be able to protect Vikki from Harvey’s evil grasp? He’d do it anyway, even if it cost him his own life. She belonged to him, and no one, not even Harvey, would ever take her from him.
Vikki leaned forward slightly and placed her hand around his long length. His skin was perfectly smooth as she circled his crown before sliding her hand up and down his shaft. Tobias’s groan as she pumped his cock was music to her already heated body, and she leaned forward and shuffled onto her knees. She licked her lips to wet them before leaning forward and tracing her tongue over his head.
Taking more of his cock into her mouth, she slid her tongue around to wet it further before taking more of him deeper into her mouth. Pulling back, she licked the end before sliding it to the back of her throat. Her hands stroked up and down the rigid shaft, and a sweet, slightly salty taste coated her tongue. His hands massaging her hair helped to guide her movements, but he needn’t have bothered. She loved how she mastered his cock, directing it in and out of her mouth like she wanted.
“Not too much, baby,” Tobias said breathlessly. “I want to be inside you when I come.”
Vikki released him, staring up into his lust-filled eyes. She licked her lips, desperate to feel his hands on her skin.
Tobias eased her back onto the bed and gripped the front edges of her jeans. He unclipped them effortlessly and pulled the zipper down. Grasping the waist and her panties at the same time, he pulled them down and eased them off her feet. She didn’t care where they landed at that moment. Crawling back over her, Tobias pulled the edges of her T-shirt, and she lifted to help release it over her head. She lifted her chest up, and he unclipped her bra before lying back down again. Tobias’s fingers slid under the edges of her straps and slid them down her arms. He didn’t take his eyes from her the whole time.
“Such beautiful, creamy skin,” Tobias said.
Vikki inhaled deeply as Tobias took both her breasts in his hands. He wasn’t rough or impatient, but squeezed each one with delicate precision to lift them so he could suck each of her nipples in turn. He nipped them, licking them before taking each one into his mouth and sucking hard. The sensation of desire it drove down to her clit made it feel like the two were connected by some invisible force. Or was it just Tobias that was controlling her with his amazing touch?
“Tobias,” Vikki whispered.
“I want you so badly, it hurts,” Tobias said.
Vikki writhed under him as Tobias trailed kisses over her stomach and down between her thighs. He pushed her legs apart and his tongue darted out and licked her clit. Vikki gripped the comforter just for something to hold onto as he sucked her bundle of nerves, and she groaned loudly. What he was doing to her was amazing, and even the slightest thing Tobias would do next would rip at her control. His finger tracing the line to her pussy was her undoing, and she cried out as he slid it inside. She knew he’d found the right spot when he started moving his finger in circles. She was wet and ready to take him, and her hands moved to the sides of his head just to control the bliss of his mouth sucking her clit. She groaned loudly, ready to explode as he devoured harder.
“Tobias,” Vikki screamed as she came hard. His tongue moved down to the opening to her pussy, and he licked her over and over. No one had ever done something so erotic, and she floated, every ounce of pleasure soaring outward. It overtook her mind. All she could feel was Tobias.
“Turn over,” Tobias instructed impatiently.
Vikki did without hesitation. Her body still pulsed from the mind-blowing orgasm, and she felt him lift her until she was on her hands and knees. His thick crown pushed at the entrance to her now-soaked pussy, and he entered her swiftly. His cock was divine as he filled her. Tobias remained still for a long moment before withdrawing, and Vikki grabbed his arm, an almost desperate plea for him to slam back into her. He must have understood her small gesture as he pounded into her hard.
“You feel amazing,” Tobias said, panting hard.
His thrusts in and out of her were relentless. His rhythm matched her heart rate, and she bathed in the magnificent feeling of how hard he felt. He stroked one of her breasts, caressing it before pinching her nipple, and it made her groan loudly. It heightened the pleasure soaring though her. His other hand gripped her hips, and guided his cock deeper inside her until there was no more left of her to give. Vikki panted hard, in awe that Tobias was owning her body in such a magnificent way. Her second orgasm verged on exploding, and she gripped the covers, her body soaring. She cried out Tobias’s name as she came a second time. It shocked her, the strength of pleasure soaring through her and tensed every muscle in her body. Tobias pushed inside her one last time and held still, groaning loudly. Vikki felt him swell further as he came, and her pussy pulsed along with him. She never thought that making love with Tobias would blow her mind as much as it had.
