I did my best not to eavesdrop as Brody and the wolves discussed what was to be done with him. I couldn’t help it if I overhead a few things. Brody wandered back over to me once they were done, informing me that he was staying. I smothered him in a hug, nuzzling him a little as he hugged back. He kissed the top of my head and I shut my eyes, keeping them closed as he shuffled the two of us upstairs. He kissed me, gently stroking the scabs on my neck as I kissed back.
"What even happened?"
I leant my head on his shoulder. "I got myself bitten"
He kissed the top of my head again and I hummed, hugging him even tighter. He sat on the bed and I perched on his lap s he cuddled me.
"I know I said it already but I really did miss you" I said quietly.
"I missed you too"
"I missed you" I sort of mumbled for no particular reason and he pecked me on the lips.
I kissed back kind of hard, my hands tangling in his hair as he matched it. His hands moved to my hips and I kissed his nose. He kissed my neck on the side with the scabs, sending shivers jolting down my spine. He licked my neck, making me shiver again and I shut my eyes. I could tell he was about to bite me. I know I said I should give being a walking blood donor a rest but something about Brody made me go all submissive. I opened an eye, however, when he pulled back. He flashed me a small smile and I smiled back, a little curious as to what made him stop.
"I should feed before I go anywhere near your neck" he said, a hand moving to play with my hair.
“It's okay, go ahead" I hummed and he kissed my forehead.
"I'll end up hurting you"
I gave him a tiny smile because I knew he didn’t really believe me.
"You'll know about it if you end up hurting me"
He kissed me before turning his attention back to my neck. I shut my eyes again as he bit me but the poor guy was doing his best not to feed on me.
"Go on, I don't mind" I said, playing with his hair a little.
He drank a little, half healing me before biting me again. I hummed each time he did it til he pushed me down on the bed. I looked at him, stroking his cheek and he kissed me hard. I let out a baby of a moan as he groped me, gasping a tiny bit as he pushed his hand into my boxers. I bit my lip as he palmed me. He stripped me and went straight back to palming me while I just tugged at his shirt. He let me get it off him and I ran a hand down his chest, earning myself a hard kiss which I didn’t quite match. He jerked me off a little as I littered his neck in tiny kisses. He undid his pants with his free hand and I slid them down, watching as he kicked them away. I leant up to kiss him and he kissed back, lubing up as he got his boxers off.
I flopped back on the bed once we were done, breathing hard as Brody lay down next to me.
"Reckon they heard us?" I asked, trying not to chuckle.
Brody nodded with a smile and I felt a blush start to spread across my cheeks. He leant over and kissed me, cuddling me.
I nuzzled him. "Told you you wouldn't hurt me"
"It was a lot harder than it should've been, though" he said kind of sadly and I stroked his cheek.
He sighed a little and I kissed him, snuggling into him.
"Brody" I said quietly.
"While you were gone blondie, I mean Lazarus, said something..."
He shot me a questioning look and I looked down, not wanting to meet his gaze all of a sudden.
"I think I love you" I said super quietly.
I sneakily glanced up and looked straight back up at the look of shock on his face.
"Why?" he asked after a long pause.
Well done, Fate, you just had to go and say that.
"...Sorry, I... it's just... I dunno" he said and I looked up at him, biting my lip. "I think I'm gonna need some time to process that one" he said, his hand moving up to play with my hair and I looked down a little.
He kissed my forehead. "It's not your fault"
I was silent again and he almost looked horrified.
"Sorry" he said.
"For being shit at dealing with emotional stuff" he said, sounding embarrassed.
"It's fine. I shouldn't have said anything"
He looked a little upset and I kissed his nose.
"I don't want you to not say stuff, just y'know... don't expect me to be able to take it in straight away" he sounded kind of frustrated at himself.
"Seriously, it's fine"
He sighed a little, kissing me. I sort of kissed back, knowing full well that no matter how much he tried to hide it, it bothered him. I gave him a small smile, feeling sleep start to tug at my eyes. Brody cuddled me a little more and I shut my eyes. His hand toyed with my hair and I was all but asleep. I heard Brody whisper something just as I fell asleep but I couldn’t make out what he said. I’d just have to ask him when I woke up...
