Who could've turned down such a request? Not I, let me assure you. Yet who would've liked to make such a presentation of themselves to a woman like Nori and a man like Lin Yao as I knew I must have with my injury?
Nori, gods and goddesses bless her, took the decision out of my hands.
* * * *
"Come to me" Nori urged, beckoning the man with gentle curls of her finger. "That's it. No fear, sweet Ko, no fear. Let yourself love us as you long to."
Lin Yao almost flinched as Nori opened her arms to enfold him, all deliberate seduction underscored by real affection, and stood on her tiptoes to reach his face. When she brushed his mouth, her lips mouth molded to his own, clinging, offering up again everything she was and all she had.
He was just barely aware of Ko stepping into the water, wading toward them, not really registering the other man's presence until Ko stood close enough to share his breath.
Sounded like a good idea to Lin Yao all of a sudden, and maybe there was some magic in Nori's embrace that inspired him with such madness as to turn away from her and seize Ko, hauling the man in to taste his mouth.
At the initial brush of Ko's cool lips, Lin Yao held his breath, stunned by the flavor of a good man's kiss after nearly two decades. He'd been a boy the last time he'd done this and enjoyed it, barely old enough to grow a beard. The only lips he'd touched with his own since then had been mistakes. More, they had been hard and sour-breathed, given only as part of the price for a quick fuck.
Ko wasn't making a bargain here. As the man released a breathy moan and clung to him, eyes closed with the appearance of wanton passion, Lin Yao knew that for whatever baffling reason, Ko craved him like a drug, like water. It went to his head; Lin Yao decided then and there that no matter what Ko craved to do, Lin Yao would let him.
He'd have his own fun too.
Lin Yao growled, animal-like, forcing his tongue through the seal of Ko's lips. The pale man tasted ever so faintly like dried plums, dark and rich and faintly spicy, the flavor of luxuries and decadence.
"Gods," he rasped into the other man's mouth, devouring his breath.
Ko's tongue twined hesitantly around his, stroking the underside, as the foot of his uninjured leg hooked around Lin Yao's ankle. "I'm yours," he whispered, a brave soldier. "Take me. Do what you want with me."
"Don't make an offer you're not ready to fulfill," Lin Yao warned, well aware of Ko's tightly wound nerves. "Don't make me do something that's too much."
Ko's eyelids fluttered open, starry lights pinpointed in his pupils. He looked as if he was drunk on the costly spiced wine Lin Yao had once lusted after back in the Emperor Worlds.
"What makes you think anything would be too much?" Ko replied. "Please. Fuck me."
The dizzying rush Ko's speech inspired drove away the last of Lin Yao's caution and all of his restraint. He gathered Ko fully to him. The blond's soft flesh molded to his demands as Lin Yao launched a sensual attack, pushing the other man forward with each ravenous kiss. He pressed his full length against Ko, pinning him there at his mercy.
Ko lowered his eyelids halfway and gazed at Lin Yao as if he was drunk from Lin Yao's touch. "Yes," he breathed. "Give it to me."
"Fuck, yes," Lin Yao snarled, barely hearing himself. His mouth claimed Ko's again, thrusting his tongue over teeth and soft palate and under Ko's own tongue, sucking on the tender flesh of lips that puffed beneath his savage demands. His hand found one small, taut ass cheek and kneaded the firmness of it. Gods, but Ko had a marvelous body. So much better than what he remembered of the gilded youths in the Emperor Worlds, so much more than what he'd dreamed about on long and lonely nights.
He was unable to resist another fleeting taste of Ko's mouth, though he forced himself to take a small taste only. "I haven't fucked a man and enjoyed it or cared about his pleasure since I've been here. Don't know how good I can make this."
Ko bit his kiss-swollen lip, seemingly dismayed. "Please..."
