Cole’s family had always meant everything to him. His father and brothers, along with Shaun, had been the only people he’d loved. Well, he’d loved his mother, but she’d passed when he was still too young to have many memories of her. But in the living world, he’d had a very small circle of people he loved and trusted.
And now that circle was expanding by one more. Cole hoped Steven would love his family, just like he did. He needed that.
Worrying about when and if Steven ever met up with his family was silly, Cole told himself. He needed to concentrate on their current situation—trekking closer and closer to a confrontation that would be bloody and deadly. Hopefully only for the enemies.
The sun was hot on his coat. Cole lowered his head and twitched his ears as he brought up the rear of their little group. Nothing but wind and the sound of small animals scuttling, birds singing or squawking. The normalcy of it all was almost unsettling, but Cole knew he was just being paranoid.
They hadn’t discussed a specific plan of attack, and that left him feeling itchy all down his spine. Going in blind was dangerous, but he understood that Steven didn’t know what to expect, or even where exactly Bashuan was.
But they needed a loose plan in place, at least. Cole knew they had to be getting close to the first sight where Bashuan sometimes kept the lepe.
By midday, they were ready for a break, at least a short one. Along with loping and walking, Cole and Shaun had on their backpacks properly. Steven had his on partially, as he insisted that he be the last to shift so he could load his mates up properly. Which had meant he was left being unable to get his own pack on right.
Cole was going to insist that he carry the odd bag when they resumed their trip. For now, they found a place in the dense woods they’d been traipsing through for the last hour and a half or so. Secure in the knowledge that no one else was around, save a few animals, they shifted.
Steven didn’t groan, but he did pinch his lips together tightly and stretch, popping joints and tendons as he did so.
Shaun flopped over onto his back, his flaccid dick bouncing slightly as it hit his thigh. “Gods, I could eat a bear.”
Steven snorted. “Well, I don’t know about bear…”
Cole and Shaun both looked at him. Cole’s prick twitched with interest.
“But we have jerky and cookies in the packs,” Steven finished off, a teasing gleam in his eyes.
“Cock tease,” Shaun muttered, glaring, but Cole pointed at Steven.
“You go right ahead. I wouldn’t want Shaun to pout any longer.” Cole barely kept from smirking at Steven’s sharply drawn breath. “Look at this,” Cole murmured as he crouched over Shaun.
“Jeez, do more than look,” Shaun whined, moving his legs restlessly.
Cole stroked a finger up Shaun’s cock from root to tip. By the time he reached the slit liquid was beginning to bead there.
“Suck him,” Steven said in a harsh. Cole didn’t even question why it turned him on so much to have Steven go all bossy on him. It just did.
Shaun gasped as Cole sucked on his crown. The slightly tangy taste of pre cum had Cole moaning and bobbing his head down further. He pushed one of Shaun’s thighs over and got his hand on Shaun’s balls. Hot and heavy, they fit in his palm perfectly.
“Please,” Shaun rasped, scratching at Cole’s shoulders. “Let me—“
Cole tightened his hand around Shaun’s balls. He could feel the way the edge of pain spiked Shaun’s arousal even higher. Cole slid his mouth further down Shaun’s length until he had that whole, thick rod in his mouth, breeching his throat.
“Gods!” Shaun yelped, jerking his hips and causing more of a tug on his nuts. “Argh!” Shaun curled his fingers against Cole’s skin, sharp claws cutting into him enough to really sting. Cole pulled back a little, then a little more until he could draw a breath. On his way back down, he let his teeth drag lightly over Shaun’s sensitive skin.
Shaun howled and twisted underneath him. Cole was cognizant of Steven moving to stand beside them. He could smell Steven’s excitement, his need.
Then Steven pressed a hand to the back of Cole’s head. “All of it,” Steven rumbled, and Cole let Shaun’s dick press into his throat. He swallowed and gave Shaun’s sac one more squeeze before releasing it.
Shaun jolted and his cock pulsed against Cole’s tongue. Steven pulled Cole’s head back by the hair and the rest of Shaun’s spunk jetted into Cole’s mouth.
Cole barely had time to swallow the last shot of it before Steven was pulling his head up, up and back. Cole’s vision was blurry, his own need making him pant as Steven held his cock to Cole’s lips.
The hold Steven had on him, the idea of having both of his mates in his mouth, one after another, was the strongest aphrodisiac Cole had ever experienced. He parted his lips and closed his eyes. Even if he’d wanted to keep them open, there was no point. With Steven tugging harder on his hair, Cole’s eyes were watering, and lust was making him dizzy.
He sucked and licked, but Steven was in control, fucking Cole’s mouth with slow, deep strokes. Cole ran his hands up Steven’s legs, then around to palm the full, hard swells of Steven’s ass.
Steven grunted and began to pump his cock deeper, harder. Cole’s own shaft needed a touch, something, because he ached to come. He didn’t want to let go of Steven, though, and for a moment there was chaos in his mind.
Then there was nothing but bliss as Shaun lapped at Cole’s cock. Cole shuddered and probably whimpered, he didn’t know or care. Electric sparks of ecstasy were shooting through him, spreading up from his groin.
He sucked Steven with more enthusiasm as Steven hissed had pulled his hair tighter. It brought Cole up a few inches, bringing his ass off his heels.
Cole’s jaws ached and his lips felt sore and swollen as Steven pulled Cole’s face to his groin.
“Now,” Cole heard Steven thunder. Cole’s right ass cheek was pulled aside and a thick dry finger speared unerringly into his hole.
Cole shattered as the burn added to his pleasure. It spiked his climax into overdrive as a roaring sound filled his ears. He shook and held onto Steven, kept that big shaft of Steven’s in his mouth.
Steven rewarded him with bitter, strong jets of cum that Cole couldn’t quite manage to swallow all of. Steven murmured his approval and smeared the leaked spunk onto Cole’s skin.
Shaun left off sucking and fingering Cole at the same time Steven pulled his cock from Cole’s mouth. Cole cracked open his eyes just in time to see Steven sink to his knees. Shaun’s handsome face was right there too, then his mates were licking him clean.
They didn’t stop until Cole’s skin was free of Steven’s jizz. Once that was done, his mates pulled him to them for a three-man cuddle.
They stayed in the embrace for several moments, just being with each other. Eventually, though, Shaun’s stomach rumbled loudly. Steven and Cole’s followed suit.
Cole sighed as they separated. Their erotic interlude was over, and there were things that had to be taken care of. “We need to come up with some kind of plan.”
“We do,” Steven admitted. “So far, the plan I have is, find Bashuan and kill him. He seems to know where I am, though. I don’t think the element of surprise can be on our side.”
“Shit.” Cole closed his eyes and pinched the bridge of his nose. “That’s right. He’s probably got you tagged.”
“If we knew where, you could take it out,” Steven said.
Cole snapped his eyes back open. “I doubt you’d want to do that. We don’t have an anesthetic—“
Steven waved that off with a gesture. “I’ve never had any before and Bashuan had done plenty of things to me that hurt.” His cheeks darkened and Cole felt his shame at admitting to that.
“There’s nothing wrong with telling us he hurt you, and that it actually did hurt when Bashuan did evil shit to you,” Shaun said before Cole could. “I’m not going to hide it when I’m hurting and I don’t think that makes me a wuss.”
Steven shrugged. “I was taught it’s a weakness.”
Shaun narrowed his eyes at Steven. “What are you saying?”
Steven seemed to catch on to his impending blue balls. “I meant I was taught it’s a weakness for me, because I had no other purpose in this world. I was taught wrong.”
“Well no fucking shit,” Shaun muttered. “Gods, I really hate Bashuan.”
“Me too,” Cole admitted. “And every one of his men and women who hurt you.”
Steven glanced away but Cole felt the surge of happiness it gave Steven to know his mates cared. “Thank you.”Cole grunted and Shaun huffed. Cole poked Shaun in the ribs. They didn’t need to keep harping on Steven about this. They needed to come up with some kind of plan.
