Part 2 of Chapter 30A Chapter by Layla J Omorose
Adien watched her with intense fascination. He had never seen another living being eat that much mood as fast as she did. Not even he could do that. But he guessed if he hadn’t eaten in a week he would be starving too. As he studied her face he took in the differences between her and her sister. She wasn’t slender and toned like her sister, and now that she was mated to his brother her once dark brown hair was now pure white. But she still held a beautiful light in her that was exactly what his brother needed. Even though he envied his brother he was still regrettably happy that someone out there could put a smile back on his face.
“There’s more if you want.” Adien told her after he watched her devour the food on her plate with a hunger that surpassed any male that he knew. He took her plate and pilled more food on to it.
“Thank you.” She grumbled with a mouth full of food, some of which feel out the corner of her mouth as she spoke.
“No problem.” Adien was amused by the female. She swallowed her mouth full of food and smiled at him. It was a sincere smile that caused him to smile back. He leaned back against the counter his arms crossed over his chest and watched her. But watching her only made his mind wonder to a pair of golden eyes and a lithe body that made his body harden and the beast in him pant.
Melody continued to stare at him as she ate. She was curious about Adien. She could see how he suffered. He had a look of longing on his face and sadness in his eyes that made her want to comfort him. He seemed so far off in his own world…she knew that face all too well.
Finished eating she pushed the plate from her. She watched as he came back to reality and walked over to take her plate.
“Better.” He asked as he sat the plate in the sink and began to wash it.
“Much.” She said to his back. He turned back around to face her. There was a tense silence between them as they continued to study each other. “Do you think we look alike?” She finally asked. She felt a smile at the corners of her mouth at his thoughtful expression.
“Yes” Was his clipped response.
She smiled then. Everyone seemed to be taken with her sister, and it seemed that Adien was no exception. She could easily see them fitting into each other’s lives, his gorgeousness complimented her sister’s beauty and both of them had eyes that were hypnotizing and out of this world.
She found herself wondering if…”You have one too don’t you.” It wasn’t a question but an observant statement.
Adien nodded his head.
“Can I see it?”
Adien wasn’t so sure about that that. He didn’t want to think about how Radien would react if he walked into the kitchen and saw his mate running her hands over another man’s body. He doubted if it would matter that it was an innocent touch…s**t with their past he wouldn’t believe it either.
“Adien…can I see it?” She asked. “I promise I’ll be quick.” The look in her eyes made him walk over to her. She watched him intensely with curiosity as he began to unbutton his shirt.
Thoughts raced through her head. Was it on his back like Radien’s? Or someplace that would make her cheeks flush?
Carefully he undid the buttons and when he reached the last button his shirt hung open and his mark was before her wide eyes.
It was beautiful. She had never seen anything like it. A tree that expanded over his abs and stomach, the branches were bare and twisted in an elegant pattern. The tips of the branches starching out in various directions. Her gaze traveled down the length of the tree, merged into the center of the tree was the Trinity mark that Radien bore on his back. The roots disappeared under the belt of his pants. She wondered if his mark covered his legs and thighs, the way Radien’s covered his entire back.
Absently her hand reached to trace the outline of the tree. But she stopped and jerked her hand back and looked up at him.
“May I?” She asked. She noticed the emotions that played across his face before he gave her a hesitant nod. Smiling at him she reached out and traced the tips of the branches with her finger tips. His body tensed and he sucked in his breath as her hand moved down to the base of the tree. “Can you take the shirt off?” She wanted to see the full effect of his mark, and she had to make sure that her guessing about him was right.
Melody…what is taking you so long? Radien’s voice echoed in her head, vibrating through her body reminding her of what was waiting for her back in the bedroom. She managed to ignore him. She was fascinated with Adien’s mark. Where Radien’s mark made her spark with desire and need, Adien’s sent a soothing vibration through her.
Strange, if she recalled correctly her sister had a mark similar to his o her side. No way. Melody gasped and jerked her hand away. She looked up at Adien who was frowning at her in confusion. She smiled softly at him and wondered if he would have the same effect on her sister that his brother had on her. “You know-“
“Radien’s coming.” His dead tone cut her off and made her blood run cold.
Great. Just what she needed right now, to have her overly protective mate come into the kitchen and see her there with nothing but a T-shirt on and his brother half naked. They already hated each other, this was only going to add fuel to the fire…Yeah she really didn’t like the way this looked.
“Here, put your shirt on.” She bent down to get retrieve his shirt from the floor.
Big mistake, just as she bent over to get Adien’s discarded shirt Radien walked into the kitchen. Slowly, she stood and let the shirt remain on the floor and met Radien’s intense glowing eyes. Her heart was racing and her palms sweating as she watched his gaze travel from her to his bare chest brother and back to her…this was so not good.
Anger and rage oozed out of him and tic worked in his jaw. She noticed his hands twitched and then started to glow.
Oh s**t. “Radien…it’s not what it…” She started to explain but the fierce growl that vibrated from Radien a moment before he blasted his brother left her speechless.
He couldn’t think straight. His vision turned red from his fury. All he could see was his woman bending over and his arrogant brother standing behind her. Radien had waited impatiently for her to return from the bathroom. When she was taking too long he became worried that somehow his father’s defenses had failed and Iraon had found her again. His paranoia caused him to leave the bedroom and search for her. But his paranoia quickly turned to suspicion as he walked down the hallway. He could hear her and his brother whispering in the kitchen. Then it was quite...too quite. He stormed into the kitchen and what he saw was worse than he expected. He saw the shock in her eyes then the amusement in his brother’s eyes when he walked into the kitchen. His body was shaking with the weight of his fury as he looked back and forth between them. He heard Melody start to explain what was going on but the sly smirk his brother’s face sent him over the edge. Before either one of them could say another word, Radien let loose a blast of energy that came faster than Adien expected slamming him into the counters in the kitchen. Before the basterd he called a brother could get to his feet Radien was on top of him with his fist connecting with Adien’s skull.
In the midst of his brother’s attack Adien somehow managed to get away from Radien’s advancing fist and appeared across the room. Blood at the corners of his mouth and trickled out his nose. If he was in pain he gave no outward sign of it, all that could be seen from his bruised face was the violent rage that was coursing through his body. They faced off with a thousand years of hatred reflected in their stares. Both of them in their fury forgetting that Melody was in the room charged at each other, clashing fists into each other’s anatomy. They met each other blow for blow at a lighting fast speed, so much so that even with her enhanced senses Melody was having a hard time keep up with who was hitting who. What she managed to see was Radien swing at Adien and Adien block before the hit could shatter his jaw. All they were was bury movements that made her head dizzy trying to keep up.
Until the room became deadly quite and she saw Radien’s hand wrapped around Adien’s throat, holding him in the air. Gasping for air Adien struggled to break free of his brother’s death grip, but it had all been in vain if anything all Adien’s struggle did was cause Radien to apply more pressure.
Melody knew that Radien was going to kill his brother. Adien seemed to know it to as he sent a pleading look over to Melody trough swollen eyes.
“Radien” She called out to him. Instead of answering her, a deep and dark growl seeped out of him. His grip on Adien tightened. Any tighter and his neck would snap, slowly his vision began to lose focus and everything around him became dim, he could hear his own heart beat in his ears.
“Radien” Melody not only called out to him but mentally she reached for him. Slowly, and a bit scary his head turned to her and his bright gaze met hers. Carefully, she approached him until she stood within arm’s reach.
“He touched you.” His voice was downright scary, deep and dark, a mix between man and beast. A voice that would have made any other woman or man for that matter piss on themselves, but Melody wasn’t frightened because she knew that he presented no danger to her, only to his brother. Actually the power that he was emitting off of him was electrifying the air between them making her wanton of him. That was until she saw Adien turn blue and go limp in Radien’s grip.
“Let him go.” She demanded then as her own eyes started to glow from the anger of their unnecessary violence.
“He touched you.” He growled as he looked at Adien and then back to her. He paused as his gaze slowly going over her body, his possessive examination of her made her body tingle.Then his free arm shot out and pulled her to him. Dropping his limp brother to the floor, he wrapped his arms around her and buried his face into the crook of her neck. His nostrils flared as he deeply inhaled her scent and immediately his body relaxed…a little. With a frustrated growl he flashed them into the bedroom…
When they appeared in the room Melody was thrown onto the bed. Before she could take her next breath Radien’s mouth was covering hers with a possessiveness and desire that shocked her all the way to her toes. She moaned into his kiss, as his tongue demanded access to her. Happily she accommodated him allowing his tongue to stroke hers, coaxing her tongue into his mouth allowing him to gently suck her tongue.
Moaning she wrapped her arms around his neck as her legs found their favorite place around his waist. She molded her body to his.
“We are leaving.” He whispered harshly into her ear. Quickly following his voice, she felt his tongue dance around in her ear then down the exposed flesh of her neck, making liquid lighting pour through her body.
“Radien.” She moaned against his neck. She could feel his hands traveling down and under the shirt she was wearing, his large and warm hands feeling like a silk caress against her needing flesh. His mouth coming back to hers, as his fingers gently squeezed the tips of her n*****s, once again making her moan into his mouth and her back arch. She could feel his erection pressing into her core. She purred and rotated her hips. The feel of her wet heat against his erection made him groan and move against her.
“Let’s go home.” He practically growled as he broke their kiss. “There are things that I am going to do to that supple body of yours that doesn’t belong in my brother’s bed.” He didn’t wait for her response, with her legs still wrapped around him he picked her up off the bed and wrapped his arms around her. He stood holding her and his erection pushing against her core. “No other man shall see or smell you the way you are now.” Cupping her bare a*s, he eased two fingers into her. He caught her gasp in his mouth as the vanished from Adien’s apartment to their bedroom in Oblivion.
