Adonis nodded. “Yes, I can understand how weird and crazy it may sound to you. But you have to understand that all of Amanda’s thoughts and feelings are inside me, so I know why she wants this. Why she did what she did.”
Jack shook his head, huffing. “If it was me, I would have been ticked off with Amanda for doing this. She didn’t give you a choice. She decided for you. And it’s not something you can just erase if you don’t want to go along with it. No, now she’s in you forever! I really can’t understand how she could do something like this to you. Hell, how she could do this to me and to Johnny, too. You should hate her for doing this!”
Adonis’s heart hurt. “Hate her? No, I don’t hate her. She is a part of me now. I don’t know if I would have done what she did, but I certainly understand it because I feel what she felt, I think what she thought. She was dying and wasn’t thinking beyond trying to find a way to be here with you both.”
“By damning you forever?”
“You see it as a damnation?”
Adonis’s heart’s ache turned to heaviness. Breathing became a labor. “Do you hate Amanda?”
Jack looked at him and didn’t speak for a few seconds, then his angry eyes softened. “No, I don’t hate her. I will always love her. I just hate what she did to you, to me and Johnny. It isn’t something we can ignore or push under the carpet. It’s something that is going to stay with us for the rest of our lives.”
Adonis sat down and patted the seat beside him. “Please sit. I need to explain this to you better.”
Jack stared at the cushion he patted and started to walk there, until he stopped in his tracks and sat on the coffee table instead, facing him. “What other news is there?”
Adonis grinned slightly. “Relax. I just want you to understand her decision. To do that, I need you to understand my powers fully.”
“Powers? What, you’re more than a bioengineered super soldier?” Jack’s eyes squinted.
“No, that’s what I am. But you need to know that they bioengineered me, not only to be a super soldier but a sex god, as well.”
Jack began to laugh loudly. “A sex god?”
“Yes, there’s something in me that makes me capable of seducing anyone sexually. I was created not only to seduce people, but to control them through their desires.”
Jack crossed his arms and the redness in his cheeks returned. “So Amanda thought you could convince me to accept you?”
Adonis put his hand on Jack’s knee, but Jack pushed it off and stood back up. “Please don’t touch me.”
Adonis leaned back lifting his hands in the air. “I’m sorry. I just want you to understand why Amanda got the idea she did. She knew that the bio-nanites in me would not only accept all her memories and emotions and thoughts, but she also knew that I could balance them with my own. She didn’t see what she was doing as wrong. She didn’t know me as a person, just of what powers I was capable of. They woke me only after she’d died, so she never got to see me as a person.”
“So she saw you as a human experiment, in other words. If I were you, I would see her exactly like Dr. Traveski and Pelletier and whoever else is behind making you what you are. I would hate them all.”
Adonis shook his head. “It isn’t that simple. She wasn’t like them, because she didn’t make me into what I am. They did. She knew I could accept her memories, thoughts and emotions and so, in desperation, she downloaded them into me.”
He paused and then added, “You’re angry, and it’s perfectly natural you feel that way. You can take it out on the company and the scientist who made me who I am today. You can even take it out on me for discussing this with you now. But for your sake and for the sake of your love for Amanda, please don’t take it out on her. Don’t say anything or harp on anything you will regret later on, Jack. Don’t forget what you had with her. It was something amazing.”
“So what do you suggest I do, then?”
“Breathe, think, and sleep on it. Once the anger goes away, you’ll see and understand why she did what she did.”
“And if I do, and I miraculously come to understand what she did to you, to us? Then what?”
Adonis remained quiet for a second, wondering if he should tell Jack exactly what Amanda’s last thought was before she ended their connection. Should he tell Jack now? Or wait until his anger settled?
But what if it didn’t settle? From Amanda’s memories, he knew Jack had a temper and although he rarely got angry, when he did, he almost never forgave the person who hurt him. Would he be able to forgive Amanda, and indirectly Adonis, for her decision?
“You look a million miles away, Adonis. Is there anything else you need to tell me?”
“Yes, there is. It was Amanda’s final request to me. But I’m worried that it’s too soon to tell you about it. You should let what I told you now sink in first, and then I’ll finish by telling you her last wish.”
Jack shook his head. “Oh, no you don’t. I want to know now what she said. I want it all out in the open. Only then can I work through it. If you don’t tell me, I’ll harp on it and begin to wonder what it is. You have Amanda’s memories, so you know how I get when I let my imagination run free.”
“Yes, I know. And that’s the reason why I’m withholding it right now. You aren’t ready for it and it may freak you out to the point that you won’t ever forgive Amanda, or me.”
Jack grabbed his shoulders and shook him. His emotions had apparently taken free reign over his thoughts. “I need you to tell me now what it is, please, Adonis. I need to know.”
His pleading and desperate eyes weighed on Adonis. He took a deep breath and motioned to the sofa. “Please sit.”
“It’s that bad that I need to sit down for it?” Jack’s eyes widened.
“Yes. I want you to close your eyes and keep them closed. Then I want you to take several deep breathes to calm down.”
Jack closed his eyes and breathed out through his mouth and in through his nose. He did this for several minutes. When his breathing relaxing and Adonis saw Jack’s taut shoulders loosen, he said, “Okay, now open your eyes.”
Jack opened his eyes. When they focused on Adonis, they almost popped out of his head. Blood seemed to drain from his face as he became pale. It was as if he had seen a ghost.
“Amanda?” Jack whispered under his breath.
Adonis bent over and kissed him passionately on the lips. His heated and throbbing lips sent shivers of pleasure up and down Craig’s body.
Craig gazed over his magnificent body. “You’re still glowing, you know.”
Adonis nodded, touching Craig’s chest with his open palm. A red, glowing imprint of it formed on Craig’s chest briefly, then disappeared. “Yeah, it doesn’t want to go away so easily this time.”
Worry washed over Craig. “Is that a bad sign? Does that mean it’s permanent now?”
Adonis chortled. “Relax, no. It’s because I’m still horny.” He glanced down at his cock.
Craig followed his line of vision and stopped at his erect cock. He gently caressed it, feeling the ridges and its veins under his fingers. It throbbed in his hand. “So what do you suggest we do to remedy it?”
Adonis drew closer and whispered seductively into his ear, “Fucking you is the cure.”
Goose bumps of pleasure formed on Craig’s neck from Adonis’s hot breath. Craig purred as he flashed his consent through his beaming eyes and smile.
Adonis got to his hands and knees and slid to the edge of the bed in a feline-like movement. Craig’s curious gaze followed him, but he didn’t say anything.
Adonis extended his index finger and motioned. “Come here.”
Craig moved toward him with a cat-like agility, just like Adonis did before. Adonis took his hand and guided him to the full-length mirror in the corner of the rustic bedroom. He whispered in his ear while he admired his naked body in the mirror and stroked his arms, chest, and ass, “You said you were curious as a kid. Are you still curious?”
Craig looked at him through the mirror’s reflection and responded with wide, admiring eyes, “Yes.”
Adonis hugged him from behind, his hard, erect and wet cock poking his back. “Well, then let me show you some magic that will make your head spin.” A shudder of excitement and anticipation surged through Craig’s body.
“All right,” Craig said in a low, seductive tone.
Adonis pointed to the mirror. “Look at our reflections while we fuck, and you’ll see it.”
Craig’s brow rose and his voice cracked. “What will we see?”
Adonis put his finger over Craig’s lips. “Shh. Don’t talk, just observe and enjoy.”
Craig looked into the mirror and saw his own lips that Adonis had just touched glowed red just like Adonis’s body glowed red. They throbbed with his wanton sexual passion.
Adonis began to kiss his right shoulder, sucking and licking it. He made his way to his neck, earlobes, and then his left shoulder. He left a trail of heat, passion, throbbing and tingling sensations in the wake, as well as the red glow.
Craig moaned and leaned his head back against Adonis’s rock-hard chest and his ass touched Adonis’s cock. He made sure to keep his eyes open and on the mirror’s reflection, because the sexual spectacle unraveling before his very eyes was much more arousing and stimulating than if he kept his eyes closed.
Adonis brought his right hand down and wrapped it around Craig’s long shaft. Craig’s breath caught in his throat and shooting, intense pleasure blanketed his entire body.
Adonis squeezed Craig’s ass cheek with his free hand and pushed into his asshole.
Craig almost came with his mounting pleasures.
“Mmm, you feel so good around me,” Adonis murmured in his ear.
He began to nibble Craig’s earlobe and stroked Craig’s cock up and down.
Craig’s heart raced with wanton, unbound passion. He thrust forward each time Adonis moved his nimble fingers to the tip of his cock.
