Daniel picked up the pace slightly, stretching his back as he walked. Jade removed the wipe that she had tucked into her sleeve and pulled one of the swords from its sheath to clean the blade before doing the same to the other. “I hated to put them away with blood all over them, but taking the time to clean them really wasn’t an option. Please don’t tell me that you left the weapons behind with your carry-case.”
“Of course not. I stored everything on my body. I’m down to four throwing knives, one hunting knife, my nunchucks, which I didn’t even consider using, and my sword.”
“I have about fifteen of the small diamond heads in my pack. I grabbed the ones you left behind.”
“Smart lady.” He hesitated and then took her hand. “I wanted to wait until we settled down for the night to say this, but after what happened earlier…Jade—”
When he didn’t continue, she turned to him, but Daniel released her hand and pointed. “Look. The shelter.”
Just past a bend in the trees ahead of them was the dim shimmer of a glass shelter. Jade began to walk faster, eager to be in the safety of enclosure. It came clearly into view, and she reached back, removing the key card from her pack. In the trees overhead, she heard the rustle of leaves, the snap of a branch. “Run!” Jade sprinted past him, her feet pounding the ground as she held the card out before her. Their only chance was to get into the shelter before the sun went completely down and they were submerged in darkness. She knew that Daniel was on her heels as she slammed the card into the slot and waited impatiently for the door to open. Around them was the sound of a rage, the pack descending upon them.
Daniel pushed her through the open door, tugging it shut behind them just as a large black and white Kattoy hit the thick Plexiglas. He jumped back, crashing into her and sending her into the far wall. Jade grunted and slid to the floor, inhaling sharply as fire ripped through her. “Daniel,” she whispered in a gasping breath.
Jade rolled to her stomach, grimacing as she began to pant. “Very carefully pull my pack off.”
Daniel knelt down, leaning on his elbows as he carefully lifted the pack. One of the stickers had broken loose from its box, and a sharpened, diamond-shaped head was embedded in her shoulder. “Oh, shit.”
“Just fucking pull it out. There are no major vessels where it’s stuck, but it hurts like hell.”
He cautiously pried the blade from her body, setting the pack aside. Jade sat up, gritting her teeth as she unlaced her body skin. “In the pack are antiseptic wipes and shit, in a small leather pouch.”
Daniel dug into the pack, frowning as he removed the bloody diamond head. It appeared to have been wedged into place, anchored by a strand of thread that was unlike that of the backpack.
He shook his head, fearing that he was becoming paranoid. “Nothing, I’m imagining things.” Daniel tugged the pouch open, removing two of the wipes and cleaning off the wound. It wouldn’t stop bleeding, and he used a gauze pad to put pressure on it.
“Do you have any idea how to put stitches in?”
“Let me have the pouch.”
He handed her the small leather satchel, and Jade tugged out a sealed packet, tearing open the clear band around it.
“Jade, I can’t do stitches.”
“These are butterflies. All you have to do is hold the edges of the wound together and put these over the cut. Once you have it sealed up, you take the strip of Tegaderm and put it solidly over top. It should keep it closed and clean.”
He did as she had instructed and then placed a clean bandage over the area, sitting back on his heels and staring at the gathering of beasts around them. “What do we do now?”
Jade was drifting toward sleep when she felt Daniel get up. She watched through one cocked eye as he headed into the bathroom to pee. Flipping around, she straightened herself out on the bed and propped a pillow under her head.
Daniel strode back into the room. He walked directly to the side of the bed, drove his hands into the pie, and then slapped them to the sides of her cheeks. Jade groaned, and he laughed, leaning forward to kiss her. The taste of creamy chocolate filled her mouth, his tongue coated in the gooey filling. His kiss was irresistible, his slippery hand sliding down her chest and over her breasts. She really hadn’t intended to have sex again before they went to sleep, but obviously Daniel had other ideas.
He leaned back and then grabbed another palm full of pie, licking it off his hand and offering her some. Jade giggled at the chocolate smeared across his face. “What am I going to do with you?”
He pulled his lips against his teeth, rolling his eyes to the ceiling. “Oh, I don’t know. Maybe you can come up with something. Would you like to take the reins this time?”
“Are you going to be my horsey?”
Daniel replied by whinnying and flipping his hair from side to side. He pranced around to the other side of the bed and then lay down on his back. He held his hands above his head like he was shackled and grinned. Jade laughed as she stuck her hand in the pie and smeared it across his chest. His body was intriguing, his muscular chest calling to her as she shifted over him and began to rub the pie into his skin. She leaned forward, licking the chocolate from his nipples and softly nipping his flesh. She felt the reaction of his dick against her ass and sat up slightly, flexing her eyebrows. “I presume that feels good?”
“Very.” Daniel reached over to the nightstand and handed her a condom. She tore it from the package and sat back on his thighs, rolling it downward. Stroking his dick briefly with her palm, Jade shimmied back up to his hips. His hands glided up her body, and he sat up slightly, slithering his fingers into the back of her hair. Daniel pulled her downward, drawing her into a kiss. Jade shifted her lower body back, lifting her ass and sinking down over his rigid cock. The heat of him filling her was glorious. Her body responded with rapid pulses that made her whimper with sensation. She kept the motion of her rocking hips slow and easy, her desire to make things last keeping her movements under control.
When she leaned back, she offered her breast, and Daniel accepted greedily, sucking her nipple into his mouth. Tracing the muscles in his arms and shoulders, Jade began to roll her lower body in a figure eight. The action changed the feel of things, putting pressure on different nerves and heightening her orgasm in gradually increasing flashes of tingling heat. Her pussy was demanding, the muscles grasping around his dick until she lost control of her flesh. She dropped onto him, picking up the pace as Daniel met her desires. He brought his hips up and down to match her movements and then grabbed her ass, forcing her tightly down over his cock. A slow, rumbling growl flowed through his teeth, and Jade gasped again, shivering as the climaxed rocked her entire body.
