Shit, Threads. Vaughn squatted beside me. His hands twitched to touch me. To rub my shoulders and tuck my hair behind my ear. But he knew to stay away. If he rocked me or tried to comfort me, my body might hurl me into another episode.
I must admit, you were beyond stupid. If those pills hadn’t worked, I would’ve put you down for that infraction alone.My eyebrow raised. Oh? This will be interesting. Don’t torture me with suspense—what did I do?
He grinned. I’d hoped you would be able to tell me why. Explain in your words what the fuck was going on in your screwed-up mind. But I guess that won’t happen now that your insanity is cured.That annoying little word. Out of everything, it still had a smidgen of power over me. I hated that label. All my life, I’d been called insane, broken. My father had sent me away as a young boy to undergo counselling and get psychiatric help. The conclusion came back stating I was demented, mentally unsound.Every day of my childhood, Cut reminded me of my flaws. I’d come to hate those words. Despise those words.
Cut laughed again, dragging me back to the present. Can I ask if you did it because you truly didn’t think, or were you more clever than I gave you credit?A slight headache began. I honestly have no idea what you’re getting at.
Until I had a guess, I wouldn’t say a word. I’d learned how to hide, and those habits were hard to break.
Cut laughed—a full belly chuckle dancing with pride.My body screamed yes. My mind screamed no. I struggled to choose.
This is pleasure, Jethro murmured. I give you my word; I’ll release you the second you ask. His eyes glowed with need, begging me to grant one more sacrifice.He exhaled heavily, moving his attention to my other ankle. Thank you.
He wrapped a similar sash around me, spreading my legs apart. The vulnerability and almost degrading way my legs were held open made me squirm with nervousness and need.Jethro ran a hand over his face, drinking in my body. Fuck, you’re stunning. He grabbed his cock, working himself. I’ve never been so attracted to anyone as I am to you. Never wanted to worship anyone. Never been so fucking besotted.
