I quietly asked him, Want me to step outside? He shook his head. Dr. Sharma is one of my instructors. To her, I said, Adam is my fiancé. He’s been spiking a high temp over the past three days. Swollen lymph nodes. Body aches. Nausea. Migraine headaches, but he presents those regularly anyway.
What do you know of sacrifice?My eyes widened as I looked up at him. No. No fucking way. He could not mean what I thought he did. He could not be suggesting that I sacrifice Josie and our unborn child. Raw energy coursed through me.
The sacrifice would fall on you, Zeus said, as you are the other absolute being in the position to make the choice.I latched on to the last part of what he said. You said a choice. What choice is there? Because what you’re suggesting is not going to happen.You must sacrifice what you cherish most. It was Apollo who answered. Or you must sacrifice yourself.
The damn floor shifted under my feet. What kind of fucking choice was that?No. Josie whipped toward me and grasped my arm. Let’s go, Seth. We’ll find another way.
There is no other way, Hera spoke up. Not to defeat the Titans, and he knows that. Once the shock fades, you will know that too.
Yes. Josie whirled on Hera. Last I checked, the Titans gave us a hell of a better option.God, he groaned. You feel . . . God, you feel too good.
So did he. She wanted to tell him that, but she was beyond words at that point, completely lost as he set a slow pace that drove her to the breaking point, but not quite over. His mouth found hers once more. Tilting her hips, she met each deep and even thrust until she couldn’t, until the pace quickened and his body was holding hers down.Gabe’s cheek pressed into hers as the couch squeaked under them and knocked into the wall. She could feel him swelling and tightening with each breath she took. Tension built deep inside her as she dug her heels into his back, urging him to move faster, and harder, and he answered.
It felt like every muscle in her body tensed up and the coil spinning deep inside her unfurled at a dizzying rate. There was no slow buildup to the climax. The deep pounding thrusts sent her over the edge.Crying out as the most intense pleasure rolled over her in tight, hot waves, all she could do was hold on as his hips pounded into her in a tempo that was shattering.
