"Hey wake up."
"Mmm?" I said groggily turning my head only to be face to face with a pair of dark black eyes.
My body jerked from the initial shock of seeing some woman I didn't know starting me in the face. I turned half way from the gaze to the face the other side and saw the nude back of Tara, half of her body under the covers. Thankfully I wasn't totally venerable, I had one of my large T-shirts on.
I tried to move my feet but dead weight kept them in place. I looked down towards the end of the giant bed and saw a naked Poslac nestled at my calves. My mind couldn't form the words to ask as I turned back to the girl noticing now that she was also totally exposed.
Trying to remember how I had gotten there and if I was part of some outrageous orgy I had no clue about, didn't seem to help. My brain had stopped working as I gazed at the oblivious woman before me.
"I'm Kennedy." She said standing up so my face was now eye level with her crotch. I blushed and turned back to face Tara who was still sound asleep.
"She told me to tell you that if you woke up don't go anywhere and to have one of us get you anything that you need."
"Okay." I mumbled snuggling closer to Tara, my legs brushing up against her backside.
Looking on her smooth flesh my stomach groaned and my mind ached. I was so weak and so hungry.
"Do you need blood?" Kennedy asked.
I rolled over to see her again, she was well fit and was a natural brunette. I scaled up her body to her muscular neck. Dear Gods I was so hungry. Her pulse jumped as she looked down at me, but I didn't care I was focused on the throbbing vein.
Involuntarily I inched towards her. She bent down and gave me full view of her dark skin. My fangs came to life and my body dulling over with the infesting hunger.
A hand grasped my arm forcefully and yanked me back down to the bed. I tried to turn my head but the naked body of Tara was already arched over me in a protective stance. Her arms locked on the bed, staring the dark wolf down.
I shuddered when her nipple came inches from my mouth but she didn't seem to notice. There was a deep rumbling growl erupting from my beauty's throat and her fingers dug in the soft sheets.
Kennedy grew smaller but kept her eyes locked with Tara.
"Go to the refrigerator and get the pint of blood in there. Now." Tara instructed.
By this point Poslac had woken and was watching with mild contempt. Kennedy got up and nodded her head, she made her way quickly out of the room.
Tara looked down at me, I expected it to be an angry look but she gazed upon me with kindness. "Hey beautiful."
"Hey." I answered.
"You know if you where that hungry you could have woken me." She said with a half smile.
"Well that's no fun, how am I suppose to make you jealous that way?"
"Oh you little vixen!" She giggled bending down to take my lips in hers. I suddenly remembered there was a naked man still on my bed and I pulled away from her.
She raised an eyebrow clearly confused, and I nodded my head towards Poslac.
"What? Oh-oh sorry. Poslac, shorts get some okay?" He nodded and moved off the bed. He stepped over another woman laying on the floor curled in the fetal position. She had bleach blonde hair and was quite tiny. She stirred and lifted her head, she had sky blue eyes, nearly as white as her hair.
"Sunny, could you put something on?' Tara asked.
"Yes mum." She answered in a tiny voice.
"Better?" Tara said turning to me.
"Uh yeah." I said not sure how to feel.
"We heal better as a group not separately." She answered my unspoken question.
Kennedy pranced back into the room, she had found a regular T-shirt and a pair of boxers. She smiled sweetly at me as she set the cup down next to the bed. Tara watched her like a hawk until she went to stand with Poslac by the wall.
I reached over and took the cup in my hands. She even warmed the blood for me. I looked down at the swirling crimson and hesitated before putting it to my mouth.
"It's okay. There's no toxins I could smell it if there were." Tara said reassuring.
Trusting her implicitly I gulped down the first cup in no time flat. The others around me watched hungrily, even Tara couldn't tear her eyes away. I set the cup down on the stand and turned back to my love. She leaned forward and slipped her tongue over my lips, cleaning up what I had missed. We both where greeted by the familiar shiver of our magic colliding and rolling though each other.
Pulling away from our new bonding I looked at her as she did me. A mutual understanding had be replaced inside of me. I knew who I was and why I was here. I was here for Tara and our love as they say, could move mountains
Then like a flash flood all the memories of the previous night came back to me. Each one starting with my horrifying dream to the point of slumping in Tara's graceful arms. I heaved like a fish out of water and clenched on to Tara's smooth body.
"Willow honey are you okay?" Tara asked hugging me closer.
"Huh? Yeah, yeah I'm fine, just catching up on what happened."
"Oh." Tara said darkly. "There is something I want to tell you."
Great. I'm going to die or someone I care about is dead like William. Then it hit me. William is dead, Tara and I killed him.
Tara turned from my distressed face to her pack members. She nodded her head towards the door and each one crept out quietly.
As soon as the door clicked shut I broke into tears. "Tara we killed him! I killed him!
"I know baby I know, shh, it's okay. He was trying to do something terrible and we did the only thing we could do."
"I could have helped him or something!" I replied shrilly. "He didn't have to die by my hands."
"He wasn't the man you thought he was darling. William only took care of you so he could use you for his own benefit. That's wrong Willow, you, nobody deserves to be treated like that." She answered calmly.
I was about to say something to defend my dear William but I stopped. Tara was right he didn't really care about me, not in the least.
"You're right." I said quietly. "You're the only one that truly cares about me."
"That's not entirely true either." Tara said
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"Come in." Tara said over my shoulder pulling the covers up over her chest.
I turned around and faced the door. Janielle, Raoul and Faith all walked in, their faces still in the process of healing but they all looked pretty happy to be here.
"What's going on? They where there supporting William." I stated angrily.
Tara smiled at them then turned her shinning eyes towards me. "Not these guys. They took out all the other vampires, allowing my pack to get to William and me to you."
I looked each of them in the face. Janielle standing tall and proud, Raoul with the same dopey smile on his face and lastly Faith staring at me quite smugly.
"So when did you all decide to come to the good side of the force?" I asked acerbically.
"We've known all along what William was up to. See sitting in on the sessions do come in handy, is it Willow?" Janielle asked.
"Yeah well you don't have to rub it in. And yes my real name is Willow." I said looking to Tara who blushed slightly. I looked back at Janielle. "So now who's in charge of the coven?"
"Well since the council cleared out when everything started to go down, it's up to us to decide who gets it. There is only a handful of us left, we may have to leave and join another region. I'm not sure if we can defend our rights here anymore Red." Faith said.
My heart sank, if we had to find another region that meant I would have to leave Tara.
"You do have the pack here to support you now." Tara put in. "We would help hold off any rivals until you get your coven up to speed."
We all looked at each other and pondered the idea. As long as I got to stay with Tara I didn't care what or who ruled our coven.
"Okay it's settled then. We will start the deliberation on who shall be in charge one week from tomorrow. Just until you get back on your feet Will." Faith said.
"Thank you." I said smiling slightly at all of them in turn. They bowed and turned to leave. All of them exited but Raoul he turned at the door. He had not spoken the entire time and I was afraid he was upset with me.
"We have set up a joining ceremony for you and Drappa Tarashitia. It's in two days." He smiled brightly at me and left, shutting the door softly.
Tara and I where left alone on the giant bed. I turned to my Goddess and was glad to be welcomed by her tender gaze. She let the blanket slip giving me full view of her body.
I inhaled and held my breath tracing her features with my eyes. She allowed me to look but not without a little taunting.
"So is this what your face looked like when you came to spy on me at the lake?"
"What!?" I jerked my head up to her eyes. "How did you-?"
"Remember what I told you when we first met? I can feel you anywhere I go." She answered.
I laughed. "I guess I'll just have to learn to be more sneaky."
"Maybe I want to hear you?" She said dropping her voice.
I went tight to her words and looked at her with a hunger that needed to be satisfied soon. My mind had suddenly forgotten all the anguish and despiar I was feeling. I lunged forward and meshed my lips to hers, she complied and pressed back into me.
We began to devour each others lips, sucking and nipping. Her hand slid up under my shirt and she moved it to cup my breast. I let out a delightful squeal and arched my back into her touch.
She pushed her weight into me bringing my back to the bed, she shifted and layed full on top of me. I felt the skin of her sex bush mine as she got situated. We stayed like that panting and staring each other in the eyes. The love flooded off of us and came back to wrap us in the comfort of our hearts.
"I love you." She whispered
"I love you too." I said leaning in for another kiss. She held my lips for a moment but let them go and began to kiss down my jaw line, leaving tiny wet imprints all the way. Her tongue flicked out when she reached my ear, bringing out an involuntary gasp on my part. She sucked my lobe into her mouth, whirling it on her pink flesh.
My lower body lifted off the bed to meet hers, the slight contact making me cry out. She put her hands on my hips pinning me down and I looked at her curiously.
"Just relax, let me do the pleasing." She said softly.
I nodded once and let her continue her journey. She left my ear alone and licked a trial down past my neck to my shirt collar. Her hands came up and tugged my shirt up over my head and tossing it aside.
She looked down at me and smiled then moved back to see all of me. Why she wanted to gaze upon me like that I couldn't figure out, but my clit was crying out from the new pain of not being touched and I could feel my juices trickling on the bed.
I could tell she had sensed my inner turmoil for she skipped over my breasts and stomach and brought her head inches from my apex. I heard a low, rumbling growl growing at the base of her stomach. She looked up at me and I drew back in surprise. Her eyes where swimming with the gold and blue. Her eyes went back to my sex and I trembled from excitement.
"Mine." I heard her whisper as she nuzzled into my clit, the ball of her nose coming into contact with my swollen nub. I did my best to keep the quirk that wanted to jut my sex into her warm mouth.
"Yours." I said quietly. Her head jerked up and looked at me, her eyes returning to normal. She smiled at me, the sheepish kind of smile that you get if you're caught doing something naughty.
She dipped her head back down, extending her tongue to my folds. I had never felt anything so wonderful in my entire like. The coolness of her, the way it lapped up my slit to my clit. I was in pure bliss, allowing such a work of art to have me, take me into her mouth.
My legs shivered as I brought them up around her shoulders, and my hands wrapped in her hair forcing her lips firmer on me.
Her lips closed over my clit and she sucked all of it in. I moaned and pushed my body off the bed with my arms, driving more into her.
"Oh Tara!" I cried out when her tongue snaked out and touched my clit with her still sucking at me. I was close, the building sensation becoming greater and greater.
Then I hit it when she slipped one finger into my soaked opening. I arched off the bed while she began to rapidly pump in and out of me. My orgasm exploded over her finger and down on to her chin. She lifted her head up and looked at me, my juices dripping from her face down to the sheets.
She came up to me and bent down for a kiss. I extended my own tongue and licked her clean of my mess. She groaned and allowed me to complete my task all the while her hips moved against my abdomen.
My arms wrapped around my beauty's back and I pulled her down on to me more, allowing her clit to slide on my skin more easily.
"Willow, I'm going to come!" She whined into my face.
"Good." I said nipping at her lips and lifting us off the bed allowing her to get the full effect of my body.
All of her movements stopped and she looked down at me, her eyes as big as saucers she was holding her breath and I was feeling the warmth of her release gushing on my ab muscles.
She came down off her high and kissed me again. "Clean it up." I growled.
I felt her shudder and she moved down, her hair tickling me all the while and lapped up the wetness.
I pulled her back up to me and she rested her head on my shoulder. I ran my fingers though her hair. "Two more days and I'll be able to give you the fulfillment you need." I was still really scared about taking that final step. To enter Tara, to feel my tongue inside her core. Would I do it right? Would I be good enough for her? Our true first time had to be perfect, and I was going to make sure and do just that.
She moved her head to look at me. "Willow, being with you is enough for me. And don't worry, when the time comes you'll know what to do."
I smiled and kissed her lightly. "We should get some rest. We have a rough week ahead of us."
"I agree." She answered and rolled off me, then pulled me into her warm embrace.
"Sleep, my little willow tree." Tara whispered.
I sighed and closed my eyelids, and for the first time in my vampire life I felt safe. And my safety was in the comfort of a werewolf's paws.
