My head was racing with thoughts as I watched him walk into the room. I could only pick out a few emotions; Curiosity, Confusion and Fear. I looked away from him and at the man who held me in place. He glared at me and I whimpered in fear. I couldn’t tell if he was gonna hit me or not. He had before and i watched myself around him. I looked back at the man who had entered and he was standing by the door smirking at me.
I raised an eyebrow and he winked at me. I looked away from him and shifted my weight. It felt like i had been standing there forever. I was growing impatient. What did they want from me? I was literally picked up by this man, away from my friends who were yelling at him and hopefully calling the cops, and shoved into a car. the first thing that went through my head after the shock was; Why did he kidnap me when i was with friends? isn’t that like a big “do not”? I shook my head and looked back at the door when i heard it open again.
An older man walked in. He had specks of gray hair on his head and you could see the lines forming under his eyes. I watched as he walked straight for me with the other man behind him, and to my discomfort, he was still smirking. The old man grabbed my chin and turned my face, inspecting me. “Strip her.” He commanded the man holding me.
I jumped. “What?” I asked, my eyes going wide. I tried to step away before he could touch me but it was too late. He grabbed my arm and hit my head. “Wait.” I said faintly but I was too weak. I felt my clothes come off roughly. I stood there awkwardly as the three of stared at my naked body. Once I was able to talk again I looked up at the old man. “I would have taken them off myself.”
He just huffed and walked away. He looked at the first man that came in. “She’s healthy. Do what you want.”
I looked at him confused and he grinned at me. He took my chin and kisses my cheek. “You are mine now.” I pushed him away.
I smiled back at him. “You need to earn me.” I put my clothes back on. I glared at him. “What now?” I knew I shouldn’t be expecting this but i was curious. More than I was scared.
He smiled. It nearly melted my heart but i wasn’t gonna let him have the benefit of knowing. “Come with me.” He started out of the room and I followed with grace. We got into a limo. It was sleek and black. The seats were leather and I was made to sit next to him.
During the ride he ran his hand up and down my leg. I tried very hard to ignore him and was thankful that I had decided to wear jeans. After a while I looked at him and realized he had been staring at me the entire time. “What?” I asked, sounding annoyed.
He smiled. “You are beautiful.” I rolled my eyes. His hand stopped just a breath away from my crotch and he looked at me seriously. I then noticed that his eyes were a deep shade of green. Like a christmas tree. “I’m not just saying that. I’ve had my eyes on you for sometime. I have only ever wanted one girl, and its you.”
I held back a blush and smirked at him. “Stalker much?”
He gave me a crooked smile. “I wasn’t the only one that had my eyes on you.”
I looked at him questioningly and as I was about to ask who else the car stopped and the door opened. He pulled me out of the car behind him and I stared in awe. We stood in front of a huge mansion. It looked old, like very old. I looked up at him and then back at the mansion. “You live here?”
He shrugged. “I don’t live here alone. There are about seven other men here.” I could feel my heart race. I would be in a house with eight men. I could feel true fear sink inside me. I took a step back. Too scared to go any farther.
“Take me home. I want to go home.” I could hide the hysteria that showed in my voice. I knew what he wanted me for and for some reason it didn’t scare me but, other men did.
He brushed my hair away from my neck and kissed it. “You are home.” I whimpered and i heard a low growl rumble in his chest. I looked at him. For the first time i was scared of him. “I won’t let anyone hurt you.” He tried to lead me to the door but my legs wouldn’t move. “Come on.”
I shook my head. “I can’t move.” I was frozen in place. Too scared of what i would find inside. He rolled his eyes and picked me up. “No. Please. I don’t want to.” I whined. I hated that i was showing suck weakness. He carried me to the door and kicked it open.
“We’re home!” He yelled and it echoed through the house. A man had been walking through the entrance way with chips and soda.
He grinned when he saw us. “About time, Ben. Where have you been and who is she? She’s hot.” I gulped and tried to hide against his chest. That man was huge. He had large muscles and was tall. At least i knew the name of the man who brought me here
Ben laughed. “She’s gonna be living with us now. I want you to respect her and protect her from the others.” He looked down at me. “Don’t worry. Chris here will protect you. He won’t let anyone hurt you. He really is a teddy bear.”
Chris glared at him but you could see the smile dance in his eyes. “Hey! I have a reputation to uphold.”
Ben chuckled. “Oh right. Sorry. He’s A big grizzly bear. My apologies.” Ben put me on my feet but kept an arm wrapped around my waist. He kissed my forehead and pushed me toward Chris. “Go with him. I have some things i need to do.” I looked up at him and back at chris. I couldn’t understand what was going on but somehow i trusted them. I walked over to chris. He bigger than i thought. It almost comforted me.
“Let’s go. The show is about to start.” I nodded and followed. I couldn’t help but look back to see Ben looking back at me longingly. Chris led me to a large room with three couches, two recliners and a huge wide screen tv taking up the wall. There were already three other men taking up one couch. “Move it.” Chris said to one of them and he somehow fit himself on the couch with them. I climbed into one of the recliners and hugged my knees to my chest.
One of them looked over to me and winked. I stuck my tongue at him. I know it was childish but it made me feel good and he gave a good hearty laugh. “Who is this chick?” He asked Chris.
He gave him a serious look. “This is Ben's girl.” The man that winked at me motioned for me to come over. I stood in front of them, well out of their reach.
I smiled politely. “Hi, I’m Claire.” My heart was racing again. They all looked at me hungrily.
The man that winked at me spoke first. “I’m Thomas.” He looked at Chris. “Was he insane? How could he think to bring her here?”
Chris glared at him. “Because he knows that we wouldn’t dare touch her. She is under my protection. Don’t get any idea’s.” His eyes darted to the door and back to me. I looked there too and i saw someone was standing their. I couldn’t see his face but i knew he was staring at me. I felt a shiver run down my spine. I step toward Chris and the others.Thomas grabbed my arm and pulled me onto his lap. I squeaked, to my embarrassment as he wrapped his arms around me. “I’ll protect you too. You can call me your big brother.” The sound of that was comforting. Maybe i would like it here. Chris growled at him. “Don’t worry, little sis. I’ll protect you from the mean bear.” I couldn’t help but laugh. suddenly Chris tackled Thomas and I. He did it with such grace that i was a little surprised. I found myself on the ground between each of them as they rolled across the floor.
When we all stopped i was laying with my back on Chris and looking up and Thomas. They were both so close to me. I was trying very hard not to look scared but i think i failed because Thomas kissed my forehead. “Don’t worry. We’re only playing around.”
I nodded and couldn’t help but smile. “I know. You guys are fun.” I rolled out from between them and stood. We all looked at the door when we heard someone clear their throat. Ben was standing there. He didn’t look too happy. He motioned me to come. I did so.
He looked me over. “Are you hurt?” He turned me around and then back to him.
I smiled. “We were just playing.” Seeing him worry about me was kinda nice. No one had ever been like this to me before. “I like them.”
He smiled but i could still see the worry. “That’s good. They are good.” I looked back at them. They had made their way back to the couch. “Stay close to them. When i’m not with you.” I nodded but i was confused. He looked back to me. I could see the longing again and it made my heart race and my body feel, different. “I promise. I’ll be with you tonight.” He took my chin and kissed my lips.
At first i held very still until i heard that growl deep in his chest again. I couldn’t help but react. I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him back. The growl turned into a kind of pur and he lifted me up. I wrapped my legs around his waist. He pinned me against the wall and started to nip my neck. I closed my eyes and gasped. My body was on fire and i wanted him. When i opened them again I saw that they were all watching us. I blushed deeply. “Ben, um, the others.” I whispered. He almost whined when i pointed it out. He put me down reluctantly but kept me trapped against the wall. I knew how he felt.
He kissed me one last time. “I have to get back to work.” He brushed his face against my neck. His warm breath against my neck felt so good. “Tonight.” He whispered. I could hear the promise behind the words.
