Nick’s woven pants were yanked off and tossed away. Todd reached out and hooked a finger under Nick’s collar, hauling his mate up and onto his lap before crushing his mouth to Nick’s and not letting up on the kiss until they were both gasping for air. Hands in Nick’s hair, he jerked back hard, licking along Nick’s jaw until he found the shell of Nick’s ear. Then he smoothed his tongue over Nick’s ear and hissed out, “You’re mine. I’m yours.” Using light, touches with just his tongue, Todd moved slowly down Nick’s body, licking up the salty moisture. “I love you, Nicky.”
“You,” Nick gasped out, arching and stretching beneath him, a quivering mass of skin and hard-packed muscle, bucking to meet each of Todd’s powerful thrusts. “too, love you. Just us.”
When they’d given each other everything and Todd could breathe normally again he pulled Nick up by his wrists, kissed him tenderly and deeply, wrapped both arms around him and held him tightly, lightly rubbing Nick’s back. He scooted off Nick, took his hand, and hefted him off the bed. “C’mon.” He led Nick to the bathroom and started the shower.
Todd pushed Nick to his knees and thoroughly scrubbed his hair before nudging Nick back to his feet. Taking Nick’s hands in his, Todd first washed himself down, then Nick.
“I could kill them for what they did to you.” Todd ran his fingers over the ridges of Nick’s ribs, dipping into the hollows between them, then over the jut of Nick’s hip and into the concave spot where it met Nick’s belly.
“Todd.” Nick pressed his lips to Todd’s neck, and he stepped closer so every inch of his body was against Todd’s.
“But we’re not going back there, ever.” Taking Nick’s head in both hands, Todd kissed his forehead. “I promise. I’ll just chop some wood or something ’til I burn off the anger.”
“I like the or something idea.”
They stayed in the shower, caressing and holding, not leaving until the water ran cold.
