She was exhausted and confused, between the moment downstairs and now his word “always,” she didn’t know what to think. She had never had “always,” she relied on herself for as long as she could remember. She wanted to word this carefully, “what happened down there, and don’t say I imagined it because I know I didn’t,” she said as he slid in next to her, pulling her to his chest.
She felt him tense against him, “well,” he had to tread lightly as to not scare her away, “we are three very dominating men, we wanted you to see a little bit of that. It may have gotten out of hand, but when we saw how you reacted, we thought it was okay, were we wrong?”
She felt his fingers running up and down her arm, “no, it was overwhelming, and not in the bad overwhelming way. I just felt surrounded by power, it was intense,” she paused, “I liked it.”
“Good, now get some sleep it’s been a crazy day.”
She was exhausted but her back hurt, her body was sore and she was feeling all tingly. How the heck was she supposed to sleep?
“What’s wrong, you’re antsy, I can tell.”
“Well, honestly I’m sore” she said bashfully.
“Hmm, I think I know something that might help. Take your top off and lie on your stomach, I’ll be right back.” She heard him as he left the room and decided to abide by his request.
Blake came barreling down the hallway right into Ty, “whoa, what’s wrong, is she okay?” he demanded.
“Yes, yes, she’s fine, I think she’s fighting some feelings she doesn’t understand, but more importantly she’s sore, do you have any lotion?”
Ty’s eyes flared, “yes, can we be nearby?”
Blake watched the desire burn in his brothers eyes, sure that the same desire reflected in his own, “yes, but we still have to be careful not to overwhelm her. She’s in there on her stomach you can come in after me.”
“Is she ready,” Max asked appearing from around the corner. “I think so, but if we’re all with her, who is watching the place.”
“My men, are on it, they know what is at stake.” Ty growled.
“Okay, then let’s go.”
She felt more than heard when he came back, something in the air changed. She was laying there topless with the sheet hovering dangerously low around her butt.
“I have some oil, I’m going to massage your back, if it hurts or is too much, tell me.”
“Mmkay” she mumbled, she could already smell the oil and with his presence was beginning to relax. Then she felt his hands on her shoulders. Ugh, she thought, his hands were heavenly on her back. She didn’t want him to stop. Then she felt the hesitation as he moved lower and she panicked and went to roll over, but he stopped her.
“Stop, just stop. I’m not repulsed by what I see, I just don’t want to hurt you, the bruises look pretty deep and I’m trying to make you feel better not worse.” He scolded.
“Sorry,” she said her voice heavy, “but don’t stop please it feels so good.”
“Does your scar hurt?”
“No, it hasn’t hurt in a few months.”
“Would you like your legs and arms done too.”
“Oh yes, please” she moaned.
Blake nodded to his brothers, passing the oil to them as he began to knead his way lightly down over the bruises of her back, then watched as Ty began to work on one of her arms and Max started at her feet.
She relaxed as she felt Blake’s hands on her back, then she felt hands on her arm and feet, she struggled to move, but felt the pressure of Blake’s hands as another voice, maybe Ty’s whispered in her ear, “Hush, relax, let us take care of you.” His voice was soothing and she had never felt so pampered, well, ever. So she forced herself to relax and give in to the sensations that were covering her. The brothers felt as the tension began to leave her body beneath their touch and began to truly work their magic.
She felt their fingers digging deeper into her skin and she couldn’t withhold the moan that left her lips any longer. “God, that feels so good, all of it.”
“Good, now roll over baby. I want to get your front.” Blake said.
She stiffened, no not her front, she didn’t have a chance to really think it over as three sets of hands lifted and flipped her. They pushed her lower on the bed and Ty sat behind her head, Blake at her side and Max at her feet. She tensed knowing that they would see the bruises on her stomach. She had her eyes scrunched tight and felt as Blake’s fingers traced the bruises on her stomach, while Max gently caressed the scars on her legs.
“Open your eyes,” Ty said softly. She couldn’t, she didn’t want to see their pity. She felt Ty’s hands tense against her neck, “Open your eyes Izzy.” There was no negotiation in his voice.
She opened her eyes to find his eyes blazing as he looked down at her. “Nobody will ever harm you again, they will have to go through all us. You are ours and nobody hurts what is ours. We will care for you, protect you, adore you. Do you understand?”
In that moment she wanted to believe everything that he said, wanted to believe that they would do those things but she knew what would happen.
“Don’t even say it, Izzy. We are here, we are big boys, while we may be gentle with you now, you know we can take care of ourselves and you know we can give you what you want, what you need. We are choosing to take you in, we want to be with you and you’re going to have a hard time trying to get away from us, so don’t even try.” Max said.
She swallowed looking at each man, before slowly nodding, “I understand.”
