The tall man removed his gloves, threw them into an empty bucket, and rolled down his sleeves before he buttoned the cuffs. “I’m not telling you this because I’m being friendly. The more you know, the higher the chances are that you leave this place. Anyway, as you already know, Lucas Proctor, the son of Melissa Proctor, doesn’t like what Will and Leo have been doing.”
“But they’re taking non-human criminals out of the streets,” Casey retorted. He had no idea about any of this, but he’d listen to the explanation. Hamilton didn’t know that Casey had feigned having knowledge about the matter.
Hamilton snorted and laughed. His expression became serious again in a split second. “Commoner, there are evil people in the world, and there always will be. Sure, Will and Leo are doing something good, but that doesn’t mean that they can catch everyone by themselves. This man, Lucas, is a non-human criminal, just like his father Aaron Scott. Melissa Proctor, who divorced her husband, saved Will and Leo from Aaron and dedicated her life to putting non-human criminals away.”
“Aaron wanted to use them,” Casey said, and Hamilton nodded. “And soon Lucas might come after Leonard and William so they stop catching criminals.”
“Exactly,” Hamilton agreed. “Now, you shouldn’t underestimate Lucas Proctor. Do you know why? I’ll tell you, then. He’s one of the non-humans with high status. Lucas is up there when it comes to power, even more than his father.” He grinned widely and pointed at the house. “Do you think that Fabián, Penelope or myself can take him down if he decides to come after Leo and Will? It’s impossible. If I ran away because of Darius, imagine a powerhouse like Lucas Proctor.”
Casey felt his chest grow cold in fear. “What is Lucas’s power?”
Hamilton sighed. “No one can be as strong as him with only one. Lucas has many, and I heard that he’s perfected all of them,” he said. “The only thing I know for sure is that his inner animal is a black rabbit.” Hamilton reached into his pocket and took out his cell phone.
Casey raised a brow at the other man shuffling around on the touchscreen. “Do you have a picture of him?”
“Are you kidding me, commoner? Lucas Proctor is known by the humans as a nice young man, but a vile punk by the non-humans.” Hamilton showed the screen to Casey. “This is him.”
The picture showed a man with a kind expression. Behind the black-framed glasses were hazel eyes that seemed more like a strong yellow. The man’s short hair was jet black, and he wore a suit and tie. “I’ve seen him somewhere,” Casey uttered.
Hamilton put the cell phone back into his pocket. “Of course you have. He’s the heir of the five-star Proctor Hotels,” he said. “He’s been in charity events in his father’s stead. Backstage, he owns a criminal organization of non-humans. I don’t know what they do, but it’s nothing good. Besides that, Melissa has been managing a few of the hotels while Aaron keeps the other half. It’s a complete mess because many humans don’t know about us, so she can’t expose Aaron or Lucas.”
Casey looked away. He knew that spending time with non-humans like Leonard and William could get him in trouble, but his love for them was enough to make him stay. He regarded Hamilton again. “Is there a library in the house?”
“In the basement,” Hamilton told him. “If you want to get there, you’ll have to enter Leo or Will’s office. That library is a treasure about the interaction between the humans and non-humans, as well as the powers that exist. Leo and Will have always been so busy that they haven’t read those books yet. If you don’t mind being caught by them, go ahead and poke your nose around.”
“You make it sound like it’s a bad thing to help them,” Casey muttered. Hamilton just scoffed and went to the hose that was close to the wall of the house. Sighing, Casey went back inside. He knew about the present, but now he wanted to know about the past. If he did, he could learn more.
When Casey stepped into the entrance hall, he saw Darius on his way up the stairs. The man had tied his hair into a long ponytail. “They’re not here,” he said, and the blond looked his way.
“It’s you who I need to talk to,” Darius said as he came down the stairs. “Ah, the scent of sex on you is so overwhelming.”
Casey averted his eyes. “Stop sniffing me, then. Are you a dog or something?” he whined, half-serious. The closer Darius got, the more anxious Casey felt. Darius could be a very hands-on man, especially if they were alone. “What do you need from me?”
“I can’t help it,” Darius said. “Yes, I’m a dog, just like Leo and Will.” He held Casey’s hand and led him to the stairs. He then sat on one of the steps and pulled the other man to do the same. “I want you to tell me how you feel about your powers.”
He shrugged. “Fine,” Casey answered simply.
“What about improving them? Would you like to do that?”
The door opened and all of them looked at who entered the bathroom. “Oh, what a sight,” William said, a wide grin on his lips. “Penelope, you can go for now.”
Casey stared at them leave. They didn’t say anything, while with Casey they had ignored him completely. “Thanks. It started to get a bit awkward,” he said when the door closed. He didn’t mind being naked in front of other men, since they were all physically similar, so he turned around. “Do they also…bathe you?”
“Of course not. It was just so you could relax.” William chuckled. He made his way to the tub. “Now, how is it? Are you comfortable?”
“Yes.” Casey averted his eyes. Leonard and William had gotten rid of their coats, so they looked even more handsome. Their vests fitted them perfectly. And the way William looked at him made him want to cover himself again.
Leonard looked at Casey from his knees to his face. “Without your clothes on, you don’t look as thin as it seemed. You look even better now,” he said faintly. He followed William to the bathtub, his shoes clacking on the white tile floor. “Dinner is almost ready for you.”
Casey’s heart skipped. The way they looked at him should have been illegal, it was different from the way they had looked at the maids. “Thanks. I’ll try to finish here soon, then,” he finally said.
“I have to say, you make me want to touch you,” William whispered, his face close to Casey’s. Even with a change of height due to the bathtub, he was still taller than Casey, and had to lean slightly. He then put his hand on Casey’s abdomen and slid his palm downward. “Have they washed you down there?”
Casey shook his head. “But I always try my best to keep myself clean in those places,” he mumbled. The tension in the room started to get to him. Since anyone rarely touched him, his body got much more sensitive, so he sat underwater.
William’s hand followed into the warm water and he got on his knees on the steamed up floor. His sleeve got soaked. “I can do you…a favor,” he said, his chocolate-brown eyes half-lidded in clear desire.
Leonard raised a brow. “Who was it that told me to calm down?” he questioned William. He got on his knees as well and held Casey’s jaw with his big hand. “Before Will does anything stupid, are you okay with this?”
Casey gulped. He had these two men in front of him making an obvious move on him. Casey liked them, but Hamilton’s insults came to mind. He didn’t know whether he could stay with them if they were to go further than this. “Just a bit,” he said almost inaudibly, and the other two men stared at him.
William slid his hand further down and wrapped it around Casey’s cock. Leonard, his hand still holding Casey’s jaw, leaned closer and pressed a kiss to the other man’s cheek. William gasped at his friend’s bold move, so he moved forward and brushed the tip of his tongue over Casey’s stiff nipples.
They were quick. Casey closed his eyes and rested his back on the other end of the tub. He couldn’t support himself up any longer. A moan escaped his throat at how William stroked his shaft quicker, which made the water splash all over the floor. His open mouth allowed Leonard to slide his tongue between his lips.
Without much thought, Casey surrounded his arms on Leonard’s neck. The other man broke away from the kiss and wrapped one of his arms around Casey’s waist, the other on the edge of the tub. He then pulled Casey closer to his chest and took him out of the water.
Casey jolted when Leonard lay on the floor and sat him on his crotch. His knees flanked Leonard’s sides. Did he not care that he’d soaked his clothes? “Wait—” He was cut off by William’s hand back on his cock. The other man’s fist waved up and down, and Casey couldn’t move away. If only he could stay like this for as long as he could.
Leonard clenched his jaw as Casey’s ass ground slightly all over his covered shaft. “Will, I’m trying my best to hold back. You better give me a present after this,” he managed to say, but William was too distracted with his lips on Casey’s. He had gotten on his knees next to the other two.
He was about to reach his limit. Casey moaned into the kiss. He had to support himself up with his shaking hands on Leonard’s strong, covered abdomen. He could feel the waves of muscle under his palms. It was the opposite for his weak body, and Casey had never felt such strength, even though Leonard’s touch was extremely gentle.
It overwhelmed him how passionately they touched him. His nose prickled and his vision blurred with tears. If only he could stay with William and Leonard, he would be the happiest he had ever been in his life. He had no idea that in his twenty-three years of life he would find people who cared so much about him, someone who they didn’t know well. He moved closer to William so they could deepen their kiss.
