A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
Sequel to Cat's Pride
Hugh Marshall is disgusted when his father gives him an ultimatum. Mate with the daughters of a neighboring pride or lose his baby brother. His choices taken from him, Hugh decides to run with both of his brothers and escape their crazy ass father. He has just one thing to accomplish before that can happen. He needs to save a family of white Bengal tigers staying in his father's territory. The order to kill them has already gone out. Hugh is shocked when he discovers that the sweetest of the men he was sent to kill holds no scent for him. He is even more shocked when he learns that the man is his mate and that means Hugh is an alpha.
Forced to run for their lives, Hugh takes his new family and races to the only place that he knows they might be safe, the home of another alpha. Stellan Mihos promised him safety, but will that still hold true when the man discovers Hugh is now an alpha in his own right? And just how pissed is he going to be when it's discovered that Stellan's brother and Beta is also Hugh's mate? Will he help them or turn them over to those hunting them?
With his family growing every time he turns around, will Hugh be able to keep them all safe from those that want them dead? Or will he loose his new mates before even has a chance to claim them?
"Alpha Marshall sent me."
Kye liked the deep voice that replied but he did not like the idea that Alpha Marshall sent anyone. Kye hadn't liked the alpha since the moment he met him. The disdainful glare the alpha had given him and his family made Kye's skin crawl.
Considering that he was in another pride's territory, keeping the door shut wasn't an option. He'd have to let the man inside. But that didn't mean he had to do it alone.
"Please wait." Before the man could reply, Kye hurried across the room and knocked on his brother's door. A moment later, a bleary eyed Kumiko answered the door a moment later, rubbing his eyes. Kye didn't even wait for his brother to say anything. He just grabbed him by the wrist and started dragging him toward the door. "Hurry, Kumiko, the alpha has sent someone to speak with us."
Kumiko's eyes were huge as he looked down at Kye and then at the door. "Alpha Marshall?"
"At this hour?"
"Yes." Kye made a shooing motion with his hands. "Now go. I'll wake Yuji."
Kye heard his older brother stumble toward the door as he hurried to the room he shared with his other brother, Yuji. There were three of them, and Kye was the youngest of all of them. Kumiko was the oldest and Yuji was born second. They still treated Kye like the baby of the family even though he was twenty three years old.
"Yuji, wake up and get dressed."
"Wake me in a couple of hours," Yuji murmured as he tried to bury his head in his blankets. "It's not even light out yet."
Kye rolled his eyes and hurried to get Yuji's clothes together, and then tossed them onto his brother's twin bed. "Get dressed, Yuji. Alpha Marshall sent men to talk with us."
"What?" Yuji exclaimed as he jack knifed in bed. He blinked, and then rubbed his eyes, then blinked again. "He did what?"
"Alpha Marshall sent some men to talk to us. I suspect our time here in this town has come to an end." Kye pulled his faded jeans up his legs and then buttoned them before reaching for his sweater. "Get dressed and help me gather our stuff. I don't know how much time we have before they kick us out."
As soon as Kye was dressed, he rushed around the room and gathered their stuff, shoving it into the bags they had brought. He had done this before. He knew the routine. Grab the most important items first—their identification, laptops, their crafts and supplies, and their money. After that came the clothes and hygiene items. They weren't as important as their craft items.
While his brother was getting dressed, Kye set the packed bags on the bed and crept over to the door. He cracked it open and peeked through the small slit in the door to the main room of their hotel suite.
Three men stood talking with his brother, Kumiko, and they were the biggest men Kye had ever seen. Kumiko looked like a child standing next to them, which would make Kye look like a toddler as he was several inches shorter than his brother.
Kye paled when he realized one of the men was looking directly at him. He'd been caught, plain and simple. He felt his face go from ashen to pink. He glanced over his shoulder at his brother to see him tying his shoes. Good, they could run if they had to. It wouldn't be anything new. They had had to do it before.
Kye never understood that.
They followed the rules set down by the council. They never went into another alpha's territory without presenting themselves and requesting the customary five day leave time. Usually, they were allowed to stay for the allotted time but a couple of times they had immediately been run out of town. Once, they had actually been hunted as they ran.
Kye really hoped this wasn't such an occasion.
Kye opened the door and stepped out, hoping to learn what was going on. The more prepared he was, the easier it would be to escape. As he stepped into the small hallway between the room he shared with Yuji and Kumiko's room, he ran smack into the hardest wall he had ever hit. Large hands grabbed him before he could fall back onto the floor.
"Whoa, I have you."
Kye's eyes snapped up at the deeply rumbled tone, and then up some more. He had to tilt his head all of the way back to see into the large man's face. "My apologies," Kye said quickly, afraid he was about to be squashed like a bug. "I was not looking where I was…going."
Gods, what was that wonderful smell?
It was divine. Kye sniffed the air. He glanced around, sniffing some more as he tried to pinpoint exactly where that intoxicating scent was coming from. He had never smelled anything so wonderful in his life. It was like a combination of mountain air and jasmine.
"No apologies needed, little bit." The man chuckled. "I hope I didn't hurt you."
"No, not at all." Kye smiled as much as he could considering the state he was in. His skin was suddenly tight and itching. He felt an almost overwhelming need to rub his hands up and down his arms. "Please, excuse me. I must speak with my brother."
And find out where that wonderful scent was coming from.
When Kye went to step around the massive wall of flesh standing in front of him, he realized that he couldn't. The man's shoulders were almost as wide as the hallway. Kye felt flustered. There was no way that he could move the man on his own. And if the stranger decided not to move, Kye couldn't do anything about it.
"Excuse me, please," Kye tried again. His mother always said politeness was best when in a tough situation, and they didn't get much tougher than this.
"My apologies this time, little bit." The man slid to the side but there was still barely enough room for Kye to squeeze past. "I was just a little astonished that you have no scent. I was under the impression that you were a white Bengal tiger."
Kylle's breath caught in his throat as he slowly raised his widened eyes to the man standing beside him. He licked his lips as he tried to form the words that where hanging on his tongue.
"You"—Kye suddenly had a fist sized lump in his throat—"you can't smell me?"
After the door closed behind Stellan, Kye turned to look at Hugh, curiosity practically burning a hole through him. "So, how do we do this?"
Hugh tilted his brow, looking at Kye uncertainly. "You don't know?"
"Not a clue."
"You've never had sex?"
Kye swung around at the sound of Neumus's voice, and then he almost swallowed his tongue. Neumus had shifted back to his human form and he was standing across the room totally start ass naked.
And gods, he was fucking gorgeous, all rippling muscles and darkly tanned skin. He was tall and handsome, with a beautiful proportioned body. And the rest of him—even as Kye watched, Neumus's cock thickened and rose up into the air.
"Well, that's a damn good start." Hugh chuckled.
Kye's eyes almost popped out of his head as Neumus grinned and started across the room. The man's powerful well-muscled body moved with an easy grace as if he was comfortable in his skin, and comfortable being naked in a room with two men that were practically strangers. Kye didn't know if he would feel quite so relaxed being naked. In fact, he was pretty sure he wouldn't.
When Hugh pulled his shirt off and tossed it over a nearby chair, Kye could only stand there and stare. He didn't look like either of his mates and he could see the way that Neumus was watching Hugh as the man stripped. There was a heat in Neumus's eyes that threatened to ignite into a burning flame at any second.
By the time that Hugh was just as naked at Neumus, and the two men stood side by side as they looked expectantly at him, Kye was so nervous he thought he might puke. His stomach was doing flip flops and his heart threatened to beat right out of his chest.
"You're turn, little bit."
"I'm good." Kye let out a nervous little laugh. "You two go ahead and start without me."
"Nu uh." Hugh shook his head. "It doesn't work that way, little bit. I have to claim both of you, which means we all need to be naked."
When Hugh and Neumus started stalking him, Kye backed up, feeling like prey. The feral gins on their faces, while somewhat exciting, was also scary as hell. Kye squeaked when he felt himself run into the wall and realized that he had no avenue of escape.
Hugh and Neumus surrounded him. Hugh was pressed against his front. Neumus was pressed against his back. If they hadn't smelled so damn good and felt so damn right, Kye would have felt claustrophobic being crushed between the two large men.
"I…err…" Kye licked his suddenly dry lips. He had never been in this particular position before, not unless he was about to get his ass kicked, and Kye really didn't think that was what they had planned.
On the either hand, he didn't have a fucking clue what they had planned. His sexual experience consisted of jerking off to some nude pictures he found in a magazine. Until last night, he'd never even been kissed.
It wasn't that he didn't find other men attractive, or was found attractive himself. He had just never found anyone that he really wanted to be intimate with. Sex seemed like a very personal thing, something only to be shared with someone special, not something to be given out to just any man. But the two guys surrounding him were not just any men either. They were his mates.
"This has to come off, little bit," Hugh said as he pulled the towel from around Kye's waist. "You won't need—holy mother of mercy!"
Kye winced and glanced down. Hugh was just staring at him.
"Baby," Hugh said slowly, hesitantly, licking his lips in between words, "have you always been this big?"
Kye was pretty sure that the blush that suddenly flushed his skin went all of the way down to his toes. He reached down and covered his groin, not that it did him any good. Hugh and Neumus were staring at him and it was causing Kye's cock to stiffen and rise up toward his bellybutton like a steel pipe.
Gods, he was so fucking embarrasses.
"That is…" Neumus whimpered. "That is the most impressive cock I have ever seen."
"It's magnificent," Hugh murmured.
Kye felt like a bug under glass. Or a fish in a glass bowl. Either description would describe how exposed he felt in that moment. This was one of the major reasons that he never bathed in front of his brothers or even walked from the bathroom to his bedroom without something covering him.
People gawked. His brothers had done it a couple of times until they realized that Kye was embarrassed. After that that, they never said another word. But they still knew, and Kye would sometimes see them staring at his groin in confusion as if they couldn't understand how a man as small as him could have a ten inch cock.
Kye didn't have a clue.
More than once, Kye had wished he was a smaller more respectable size, like maybe six inches or something, and not the massive ten inch long, two inch thick monstrosity that hung between his legs.
"I want me some of that," Neumus groaned.
Before Kye could protest, his hands were pulled away from his cock and held to his sides. The next thing he knew, Hugh had leaned forward and swallowed the tip of his cock. Kye groaned, shuddered as his eyes slide closed. The warmth surrounding the head of his cock was unlike anything he had ever felt.
"You like that, baby?" Neumus asked.
Kye could only nod as every muscle in his body tenses and then relaxed, only to tense right back up when Hugh began swallowing more of his length.
"Open your eyes, baby," Neumus murmured. "Watch your alpha."
Kye reluctantly opened his eyes and glanced down, not sure of what he'd see. A full body shudder shook him as he watched Hugh wrap his lips around the head of Kye's cock. Hugh began to suck, his tongue tracing the veins, his cheeks hollowed.
Neumus's hands slid down Kye's arms and then circled around to pull them up over his head. He wrapped his hands around Kye's midriff and began to slowly move them up over Kye's abdomen and chest.
A tingling began in the pit of Kye's stomach. Neumus was touching him, stroking his skin like it was fine silk. At the same time, Hugh was moving his head back and forth, sucking on Kye's cock like a dripping Popsicle.
Kye bit his lip to stifle his outcry of delight. The way that Neumus touched him sent an involuntary shill through him. But combined with the sweet suction on his cock and Kye thought he might pass out. His heart was beating so fast in his chest his lungs could barely keep up.
