Holden watched with interest as a slow smile crept across the face of his betrothed, Lucien of Denmar. Lucien's dark hair gleamed with red streaks against the light from the fire. There was a gleam in his black eyes that chilled Holden to the bone.
"We have them, love." Lucien waved the missive he was holding back and forth for Holden to see. "At last you and I shall have vengeance against Gareth and his kin."
"Really now?" Holden straddled the bench he'd been sitting on and gave Lucien a grin he figured might be a bit lopsided due to the mead he'd been drinking steadily for the past hour. "And what is it? A pox on both their houses? Bloody welts courtesy of the village hag?" He did a half turn to pour himself another round. "I know. A potion to make certain Gareth's cock remains flaccid from here on in."
"Good ideas all, but I have something a little bloodier in mind." Lucien tossed the missive into the fire, then strode with purpose to Holden's bench. He took the goblet from Holden's hand, drained it himself, then tossed it to the rush-covered floor. He tangled his hands in Holden's hair and jerked his head back.
The pain went straight to Holden's cock.
Lucien laughed. "Like it rough, don't you love?" His fingers made circles against Holden's scalp. "Did Gareth make Kiel scream the way you scream when I'm fucking your arse, I wonder?"
"Don't talk about Kiel." Holden feigned a pout, difficult considering his cock was trying to pop from his hose. "Half the time you speak as if you still love him."
"Once, perhaps." Lucien lowered his head to bite Holden's bottom lip. "But then Kiel betrayed me." He pushed Holden back over thebench, ripping his hose with a viscous jerk as Holden went down. "Kiel learned his lesson, and if I have my way, so will his hapless relations." He grabbed Holden's prick with a savage twist. "Let that be an example to you, love. Don't cross me and you won't get hurt."
Holden shuddered. He didn't doubt Lucien's words one bit. He had just a moment to wonder if he'd made a bargain with the wrong man, but by then his cock was in Lucien's mouth and all his thoughts melted away.
