She stiffened in his arms. "You'd enjoy seeing me pleasure other men?"
"Not just any other man. Only Lars. He will be our family soon, Belora. It's only right that you should be able to share pleasure with him. It's normal and healthy for our kind."
"I don't understand your ways at all." She shook her head but relaxed once more against his hard body.
"It's all right. We have time yet." He hugged her close, tucking her head under his chin. "Does the idea repulse you, though? Could you make him welcome in our family, do you think?"
She snuggled into him. "He's so quiet, yet I sense in him a great well of feeling kept tightly under wraps. He's so alone." Her voice was quiet with thought and sympathy.
"Lars has been alone for a long time. His parents and siblings were killed right in front of him during the Northern Wars when he was only a small boy. His partner, Rohtina, found him among those left for dead a few days later. He was badly injured, but managed to cling to her back until she could get him back to the Lair. For years he spoke to no one but Rohtina, his dragon partner." Gareth sighed as he tucked her hair behind her ear and held her close. "He's only a year or so younger than me and we became friends early on when we were still just boys, really. Others thought him strange and it was hard for him to find welcome from some of the other knights, but we've been close friends for many years. I love him as a brother. I've never said the words to him, but I know he feels the same, though he rarely speaks at all."
"Now I begin to understand what lies beneath." Her mind spun and her heart opened with sympathy and a nurturing kind of love for Lars. It encompassed Gareth too, for the protective way he spoke of his heart-scarred friend.
"Because Rohtina will be Kelvan's mate, our friendship will now become a true partnership. We will be family, a fighting unit when on duty and a partnership in whatever we do. All five of us will live together in one large suite and any children we have will also be his to nurture and raise. When the dragonets come, likewise we will all help in whatever way Kel and Tina need us to. The five of us will be family in the truest sense."
"Am I expected to...uh...to have sex with him?" She didn't really know if she was nervous about the answer or excited. Either way, her breath was coming faster and something inside her tummy clenched in anticipation.
"Neither of us will ever force you to do anything you don't want to do."
"But is that how the other mated pairs work?"
"Most, yes. There are so few women among us that it's normal for one woman to be wife to both knights if their dragons are mated. Kel says the Mother of All knows what She's doing when She pairs off the dragons and their knights. But not all matings work the same way. There are no real rules about it. Each woman pretty much decides for herself what she's comfortable with and how the relationship will work. It'll be up to you, what you will allow. You could limit him to oral pleasure, or you could take him as you take me. Whatever you decide, when the dragons mate, you will have to adjust and find a way to help us both at the same time. The dragons' mating will affect us deeply and we will both need your help and understanding at those times. Ideally, it would be best if we could make love to you simultaneously, but again, that will be up to you."
His words and the deep tone of his voice made her squirm. She pressed her legs together and felt the wetness already on her thighs from this hot conversation. She realized it wasn't fear that made her feel this way. No, she rather liked the idea of what Gareth was proposing. She'd felt the same instant attraction to Lars as she had felt the moment she had seen Gareth. Something about both men called out to her--heart and soul. It was not logical, but it was, nonetheless. Something about them felt right and good. She would be a fool not to explore where this might lead.
"Do you really want this? Wouldn't you be jealous if I took him as my lover?"
Gareth stared down at her with serious eyes. "If you took any other man as a lover, I would kill him outright." She gasped at the deadly intent in his eyes. "But Lars is my brother now. Our dragon partners are going to be mates. It's inevitable that the three of us will be caught up in the fever as our dragon partners mate, and they'll do so often once they're finally free to join. I couldn't let Lars face that alone. I must admit the idea of watching you with him, of filling you at the same time as he does, excites me. There's no other man I would share you with. Only him. I know that if I should fall in battle, he'll be there to take care of you and vice versa. We're a team now. The Mother of All has ordained it. We'll both love you until the day we die, if you let us."
