We had a very busy time ahead of us. Our coven had the plan the attack before Drusilla stuck and took us down. I sat in many debates and many meeting but nothing was be pushed forth. The next few weeks began to wear on me driving my sanity to the point of no return. Tara was very calm about the whole process. She assured me things would get better and that my coven was smart enough to protect itself, but the more I listened and watched the more hopeless the cause became.
I threw myself on the bed, exhausted from the pervious discussion. "What does it take to destroy a very powerful coven?" I complained.
Tara sighed and closed the door behind her. "It takes a lot more than what we currently have."
"I mean was I the only one not getting any sense talk? All they did was go on, about how we don't have the strength to take down Drusilla, well duh! Of course we don't, but if we don't believe in each other we'll never accomplish anything." I said shaking my head.
"Everyone is scared, you have to try and understand you're their leader and what you say affects them all someway, whether it's good or bad." Tara replied sitting at the end of the bed and frowning at me.
"There's nothing I can do, Drusilla is going to come here and kick my pale ass up and down Main Street." I said rolling my eyes.
Tara giggled and grabbed my knee. "Don't worry things will work out, as long as you stay confidant all will be well in the house of Willow."
"I'm just so stressed from all this. I wish I had some hot, sexy Goddess to take my mind of things." I said keeping my smiled hidden.
I felt Tara move off the bed and I lifted my head up to see her stripping her clothes off and throwing them to the floor. My breath caught in my throat and I nearly chocked on it, but seeing Tara's silky body made me want to just run my tongue over every inch of it instead.
"The things you do to me." I sighed.
"Well don't you mean the things you're going to be doing to me in about ten seconds?" Tara said looking over her shoulder.
I swallowed hard and laid my head back down as Tara pranced over and climbed on top of me. She straddled my thighs and bent down to lick the side of my face. I shivered and put my arms around her neck making her tongue lap at me more.
She stopped and sat up allowing her full breasts to dangle. I wanted to just pop those into my mouth and devour then like candy.
"Where do you want me?" She asked in a low voice.
I thought for a moment then deciding on an appropriate destination pointed to my lips. "Here."
"You want me to ride your face baby?" Tara asked bending down to take those very lips into her mouth.
I groaned and puckered up to kiss back. "I want your juices smeared all over me so that when you're done I can make you lick them up."
Her body shook and her sex brushed against my abdomen.
"Get up here." I growled.
She didn't even hesitate but maneuvered her body and placed herself just above my mouth. Inches from me was her luscious clit just waiting to be sucked dry. I lifted my head up enough to touch her with my nose. She moaned and wound her fingers in my hair helping keep my head arched up so to please her more.
I flicked my tongue out and touched her opening sending another cry from her mouth. Then I licked long and full up her slit stopping at her clit to probe and press firmly down on it. She cried out and ground her hips into my face, her arousal dripping on my chin and coating my lips with its sweetness.
"Oh Willow! Yes baby!" Tara called out rocking back and forth on my cold skin. I sucked her clit into my mouth and circled it with my tongue causing my love to nearly lose her balance, but instinct kicked in and I grabbed her hips holding her into place. I removed one hand from her hip and shoved it between her legs my fingers finding her drenched opening quickly and roughly shoving two fingers in.
That's when she lost it, her walls clenched around my fingers and her orgasm came pouring out, down my fingers and all over my already coated skin.
"Oohh Willow!" She called out ramming my head firmer into her so that I could lap up as much as possible.
"Oh Tara," I moaned still licking at her. She slowed her hip movements and detached herself from me, rolling to the side.
We both heaved a heavy breath and I went to go wipe my mouth off but Tara put her hand on arm and moved it away, sitting up and leaning over my face.
"Let me clean up my mess." She whispered.
I lay placid allowing her to do her work. Her tongue came out and took slow laps up and down my face, just as a dog would with cleaning themselves. She licked up all of her juices and then some; she came to my ears and took a long lick up the inside of it making my body jerk with excitement. She nuzzled into my hair and rolled over again, sighing with joy.
"That was... different." I said smiling.
"Well you are my mate it is only fair that I bathe you like one." Tara said confidently. "Speaking of you being my mate, do you know what comes tomorrow in the night sky?"
I thought for a moment and when nothing came I just shook my head.
"Tomorrow is the first night of the full moon, and your first hunt, my gift to you." Tara said smiling.
I sat up quickly. "Oh I totally forgot about that! So it's tomorrow?!" I chirped excitedly.
Tara sat up with me grinning broadly from ear to ear. "Yes it's tomorrow night, we'll meet at sunset and we will pick our hunting crew together. But you my dear will get the kill; this will also be my first lesson to you on your magic."
I leaned over and hugged her tightly. "Oh thank you I'm looking forward to watching you work on something other than me."
She laughed and hugged me back. "Well we better get some sleep then, so that you are all rested up and ready to use your skills to obtain your prize."
"Tara there was something I wanted to ask you first." I said searching her eyes for acceptance.
"Well ask away." She said putting her hands on mine and holding them to her chest.
"Why do you have such a problem with the wereleopards? I mean if you guys just combined your strength you could be unstoppable."
Tara looked at me, anger growing in her eyes. "Did that cat put you up to this?"
"What?" I asked almost laughing. "If I couldn't cut the tension every time you guys passed I wouldn't be asking this, so no it has nothing to do with Christopher."
"Oh so now his name is Christopher? What has he told you about the wolf, leopard past?" She asked angrily.
"Okay obviously this isn't working, so let me try a different approach. What did the wereleopards do to the werewolves a very long time ago, before I was even thought of?" I asked trying to keep the sarcasm to a minimum.
She relaxed her shoulders but the tension still rang though her body. "I don't really know the whole story, I just know that our kind have always been at war with theirs."
"So basically this is just war between cats and dogs the ancient history between the two of you that stretches now even into the human world?" She didn't answer and I looked at her with shocked amusement. "You've got to be kidding me. You mean to tell me that you guys just spat because of the age old ‘fighting between cats and dogs'?"
Tara blushed and looked at her hands. "Like I said I don't really know, your guess is as good as mine."
"Oh honey!" I said laughing hugging her around the neck. "So we can work though this? You, your pack, my coven, his pride, we can all make it though this and be the strongest region around. That is if you want to give it a try instead of fighting like cats and dogs." I said managing not to laugh.
"I can't guarantee that. The distrust is very thick between us, you are the only reason we can stand to be under the same roof together. I've already had to back down Kennedy and Poslac from tearing him to pieces and believe me that wasn't easy." She said sadly.
"Well we have to get though this or else nothing good is going to happen to this coven." I said moving up and plopping on the large pillows.
"I agree." Tara said moving up to lay next to me. "I will try to make this work, only because I love you so much."
I smiled and kissed the top of her head. "Don't just do it for me, do it for us. You are my strength; you are what make me the woman I've always wanted to be. Tara you are love itself and the beauty of the world shines though your eyes every time you look at me."
"Gods do I love you so much." Tara sighed. "How thankful I am for you."
We snuggled tight, and that night was the first night in our growing relationship that the only raw need came from our adoring love. I held Tara to my chest hoping that I could infuse all that I felt for her, but figured she was trying to do the same thing. Protecting her was the well being of my existence and I would protect our love until the end of time.
