Liam looked up as the doors to the bedchamber burst open. Lars the healer hurried over to the bed. Liam heard the man suck in a gasp of air, and then he got to work. Lars called for his brother, Loy, and they attended to Keeley.
Liam couldn’t believe the damage Louisa had done to his mate. He wanted to track her down and rip her to shreds, but he couldn’t leave her side. Lucius slammed into the room and ran to the bed. He was too distressed to speak, but it was clear that he hadn’t managed to find Louisa. His brother’s eyes were flashing from his normal blue to gold and back again.
“Lucius, get a hold of yourself. Keeley needs us to be calm. She is going to need us to help her heal,” Liam stated.
“Alphas, you have not claimed your mate,” Lars said. “You need to begin the claiming process so she will have a chance of surviving her injuries. We have done all we can. We have cleaned and closed the wounds and placed a poultice over them. Now it is up to your mate and the Goddess to pull her through.”
“Why are you telling us to claim our mate? We can’t claim our woman without her consent. She has not agreed,” Liam said.
“We cannot join our bodies to hers if she is unconscious,” Lucius said. “And we cannot claim her without joining with her. What are you suggesting?”
“That may be, Alpha, but your mate will heal faster and be stronger if you bite her. She is not of our species, this I know, but your saliva holds healing properties which will travel throughout your mate’s body to help her mend.”
“How do you know this, Lars? We have never had a human female in our midst before,” Lucius asked.
Liam saw Lars’s face flush with embarrassment, but he waited for the healer to speak.
“I, um, found a strand of your mate’s hair in the entrance hall not long after you arrived with her. I have been studying her DNA and comparing it with our own. I cut the hair into small pieces and combined it with saliva and blood from my own body. The reactions were quite surprising and pleasing. It was not done for any nefarious reasons, my Alphas, but for situations just like this one. I am glad I did,” Lars stated. “Your bond will not be complete until you join your bodies, but the biting mark may save her life.”
Loy packed up their supplies, and both men stood. “We will be back in approximately one hour,” Loy said. “That should give you time to discuss your options and to bite your mate if you decide to.”
Liam waited until the two healers had left before he turned back to the bed. Keeley lay motionless in the center. She breathed steadily, but for how much longer would she sleep without their help? He lifted his gaze to Bradford and Lucius.
“I know Lars would not steer us wrong,” Lucius said. "I think we should bite Keeley. I know she wasn’t ready for us to claim her, but this is not the same thing. If we can save her and help her heal faster, I am all for it. What do you think?”
“I say we mark Keeley and we do it now,” Bradford replied.
“I agree,” Liam answered. “I do not think our Keeley would want to die. We will mark her, and when she awakes we will see if she wishes to complete the claiming. I don’t want to lose our mate when we have only just found her.”
“Do we bite her all together, or do we do it separately?” Lucius queried.
“I think we should do so together. I don’t know what will happen. But at least she will have all of our DNA in her system to help her heal,” Bradford stated.
“Do not touch her wounds. Even though she is unconscious I would not like it if we were to cause her more pain,” Liam declared. “I will take the right side of her neck, Lucius, you take her left, and Bradford, you will have to bite into her chest or a limb.”
Liam, his brother, and his new friend positioned themselves around their woman. They each licked over the place on her body they were to bite, disinfecting the area with their saliva.
“On the count of three and we bite. One, two, three.” Liam bit down into Keeley’s skin at the place where her shoulder and neck met.
The response was immediate. His muscles engorged with blood, and his cock hardened in his pants at the moment her blood touched his tongue. He felt as if a live wire were running through his system, into Keeley, and back again. Something intangible snapped into place, joining them together.
He was more connected to his brother than he’d ever been before, too, and he also connected to Bradford. What awed him most, though, was the connection to his mate. He could feel a thread which led from his heart and soul back to her.
But when he followed that thread, he found emptiness. His mate was not there. She was still unconscious, and he was afraid she would not come back to him.
“Do you feel that?” Liam asked his brother and Bradford.
“Yes. We are all connected through Keeley. Did you feel her through that link?” Lucius asked.
“Yes and no. I sense her connecting the three of us, but when I followed the thread from me to her, there was nothing but emptiness and darkness,” Bradford explained.
“Yes. That is what I detected as well. I think we should try and find her. If I go deeper into her and follow that link into her mind, I may be able to pull her out of her subconscious,” Liam suggested.
“I think we should wait. We need to give her time so her body can process our saliva and DNA. She needs rest for now and we will keep vigil through the night. If there is no improvement with Keeley in the morning then we try to find where she is hiding in her mind,” Bradford said.
Liam and Bradford were each suckling at a nipple while he attended to her wet cunt. He could see her head thrashing back and forth on the pillow. Keeley had never looked so sexy. Her face flushed rosy pink with arousal as he and the others attended to and played with her body.
Lucius closed his eyes again and flicked his tongue back and forth over Keeley’s clit. She sobbed, and he pulled his hands from beneath her ass. He rimmed a finger around and around her dripping-wet hole, and then he slowly pushed the tip into her cunt. He growled against her pussy as her muscles gripped the tip of his digit, trying to draw him farther into the wet depths. He thrust his finger into her body until he couldn’t go any farther, and then he twisted it around inside her. He heard her cry out, and then he began to pump in and out of her pussy. She sucked and clamped on his flesh, and he couldn’t wait another second to feel her wet heat glove his hard, aching cock.
He sat up between her thighs and moved in closer until his cock was touching her warm wetness. He slowly began to push into her pussy. He gripped her hips, closed his eyes, and groaned as her delicate, sopping flesh parted and enveloped the head of his cock. He opened his eyes again and held still as he stared at his mate.
Her lids were closed, but her neck was arched and she was trying to push up against him. She obviously wanted more of him inside her. She was such a sexy, passionate woman, and he felt his heart clench at the thought of what she had been through. If it hadn’t been for their healers, Lucius knew this exquisite moment would not be taking place. He loved her more than he thought possible. He wanted to tell her of his feelings, but he was worried it was too soon for his mate to hear.
He took a deep, calming breath and then eased another inch of his dick into her cunt. He held still once more, allowing his mate to adjust to his penetration. She was so hot and tight that his lion pushed at him from inside and demanded he fuck Keeley until they both reached orgasm. But he kept a tight rein on his control. The last thing he wanted to do was to hurt his woman in any way.
Lucius took his time, and even though Keeley tried to sheath him fully, he didn’t let her. A minute later, he felt his balls touch the skin of her ass. He knew they would all have to join with her at the same time for their mating bond to be complete. He nudged Liam and Bradford aside and lifted Keeley up so she was sitting on his lap. She sighed in concert with his groan. His cock pushed into her until he could feel her womb. He took a handful of her hair and tugged slightly. She was looking up at him through passion-glazed eyes. He lowered his head and covered her mouth with his own.
He swept his tongue into her mouth and glided it along hers. She tasted so sweet that he knew he would never be able to get enough of her. He explored every inch of her depths and only relinquished her mouth when the need for oxygen compelled him. Bradford moved in behind her and took hold of her hips. Lucius watched her face and waited to see if she would balk at what his friend was about to do.
Her eyes widened before dropping to a passionate half-mast again. He was surprised when she didn’t protest. In fact she leaned against him, relaxed, and wrapped her arms around his chest. He groaned when her hot little tongue began to lick over one of his nipples. His muscles were so taut he was afraid he would snap in half. He closed his eyes and growled as she sucked and nibbled on his tiny, sensitive nub. And then she licked her way across his chest to his other nipple. She was driving him out of his mind.
“Baby, you’re ready to take me. Let me know if I hurt you or it’s too much for you,” Bradford rasped out.
Lucius cupped Keeley’s face and watched her intently as Bradford breached her ass for the first time. He saw her mouth tighten, but other than that she showed no discomfort. She was breathing heavily and gripping his biceps tightly, but she still looked totally relaxed. This woman who was their mate was so special and unbelievably trusting. Not once had she told them no since he had carried her into this room.
“Use your muscles and push back against me, baby. Oh fuck yeah. Goddess, you feel so good, Keeley. Your ass is clenching on me so tight,” Bradford rumbled in a deep voice.
Lucius’s cock jerked, and he bit down on the inside of his cheek so he wouldn’t begin to thrust in and out of her wet heat uncontrollably.
“I’m all the way in, Keeley. Turn your head. Liam has something for you,” Bradford said breathlessly.
