Chapter 7

Arriving in the cellar, Victoria’s eyes lit up.

“This is pa’s old games room. We love it.” The cellar was decked out like a man cave, with a bar, pinball machine, and pool table, among other things.

“You like?”


He chuckled and watch curiously as she ran over to a couple of pinball machines. She stared at them deep in thought for a moment before blushing.

“What were you thinking that got you so red, baby?”

This only succeeds in making her blush further.

“Oh, my-my…” He tutted. “I don’t believe it. My sweet baby is thinking naughty things.”

She stood looking down and biting her lip nervously.

“What have I said about that?” He said walking closer to her and stopping in front of her but still she didn’t stop.

“I think you’re doing it on purpose now.”

Before she could ask what she meant, he leaned in closer. So close she could feel his breath on her face.

She couldn’t stop herself chewing on her lip, she was so nervous.

“My last attempt didn’t work, so…”

Not even a second later he was pressing his lips to hers, in a hungry kiss. She was too shocked to respond, but he continued for another few seconds, sucking her bottom lip and nipping it between his teeth.

The second he pulled back she looked both confused and upset. Her eyes filled with tears and he instantly regretted kissing her.

“W..why did you do that?!” She cried out but didn’t stutter much.

“I have wanted to kiss you since the moment I saw you. I’m sorry, baby. I didn’t mean to upset you. I thought you’d enjoy it too.”

A hand flew out and slapped him across the cheek. “You sh… Shouldn’t cheat!” She turned to leave.

“Cheat on who?” He asked thinking out loud and then remembered her catching him and Kraven in the throws of passion.

“Oh, shit!” He cursed realizing the mistake he made. He should have explained him and Kraven’s relationship first. But no, he had to get carried away.

“Kray’s going to kill me,” He mumbled seeing she had now gone.


Kraven locked up the door just in time to see Victoria running up the stairs in tears. Then his breathless friend rushing from the basement calling her name.

“What the hell did you do to her?!”

“I… I messed up.”

“I know that but how?”

“I kissed her,” He couldn’t help but smile a little. “A real kiss.”

“You liked it but she didn’t?” His friend asked accusingly.

“It was amazing. She is delicious. But she didn’t kiss me back, cried, accused me of cheating and slapped me.”

“Cheating?” He asked confused. Theo looked him down and back up.

Kraven stared at him for a moment before asking, “On me?”

“Mmhmm,” His friend nodded.

“Shit! We should have known she wouldn’t understand. She is so innocent,” Kraven said running his hand through his short brown hair.

“We agreed to go slow. What the hell were you thinking?!” He exclaimed and turned to go up the stairs to follow her. He passed hearing footsteps following him.

“You stay here.”

“But…” He continued to walk again but pause, again, when he heard his friend was still following him.

“I have to be there to explain, make sure she doesn’t hate me.”

Kraven turned to his friend completely and with a serious expression ask, “Why does it matter? Everyone dislikes us.”

It was somewhat true. Their one night stands hated them for the way they were dumped and ignored after sex. But neither man made any promises, both make it clear it’s just sex. But some women – more than they would like – think one time will change their minds, maybe they’ll fall and have a happily ever after.

The rest of the townsfolk either dislike or are scared of the pair.

Their large sizes and heights alone scaring them.

“She’s different,” Theo stated. “I’m not saying… I don’t know what I’m saying,” He ran his hand through his hair in frustration. “All I know is that I want a chance with her – the three of us. It may not come to anything, but-“

“At least, we won’t always be wondering if she was it,” Kraven completed making him smile.

“You get it?” His taller friend nodded his head.

“I want her too – as much as you. Lord, she makes me hard just with a smile.” Theo nodded his head with a wistful expression.

“But she is too innocent and important to me to rush and have a one-night thing. I doubt she’s been with more than a couple of men, tops.”

They both agreed. “We’ll explain and…” Theo trailed off hearing nothing.


“She’s not crying.” The loud sobbing had stopped and he thought he knew why.

They walked the remaining distance to her door, then heard hurried footsteps inside the room and silence again.

“Vicky?” Kraven knocked and called through the door.

“Yes,” Her unsure voice called back softly.

“Can we just come in a minute? I think we need to talk.”

There was a long silence and he wasn’t sure she heard. But hearing the click of the lock and more hurried steps he smiled.

“Thank you, little one.”

Opening the door, they couldn’t help but chuckle at seeing her peeking out from under the covers.

‘She is so cute,’ Theo wanted to say but bit his tongue. They had had never met anybody like her before, but that’s what made her special.

The winds were picking up and the rain was beating a tune against the window. The sky had started to darken and a flash of light filled the room for a fraction of a second before a thunderous crack sounded.

Vicky’s body jumped at the sound and they heard her whimper.

Both were at quickly. A flash, crackling and another thunder strike only several seconds later. By this point, her eyes were tightly closed and tears falling onto her pillow.

“Do you want us to hold you, little princess?” Kraven asked wanting to just do it, but not wanting to push her after earlier.

Another strike, she cried and sharply nodded her head.

He was quick to pull off his work soiled pants and shirt, leaving him in just his boxers and tank top. Theo did the same before both climbing into the bed either side of her.

Both drew their arms around her, sandwiching her between them. But it seemed to relax her some though she still whimpered and tensed at the sound, she was no longer hyperventilating as she was.

“We have you, baby. Kray and I will never let anything harm you,” Theo whispered softly rubbing her arm.

“Always safe with us,” Kraven repeated brushing her hair out of her eyes. She was laid facing him and they just stayed like that for the longest time. She watched him as he looked at her face, taking in every little detail.


She felt so relaxed in their arms she barely even noticed the storm outside. It was such a strange feeling she felt, she didn’t know how to describe it. But she knew she shouldn’t be feeling it.

“I’m sorry,” She whispered, barely audible but because their closeness they heard her.

“Don’t be sorry for being afraid-” She shook her head cutting the blue-eyed hunk off.

“I think she means the kiss.”

She knew he told him, she overheard that much.

“Vicky, I don’t want you to say sorry for things you never did.”

“B.. But-“

“I said no,” Kraven said firmly, not wanting to scare her but wanting her to understand.

“I just wanted you to answer a few questions, truthfully. Could you do that, little one, for me?”

He reminded her of a gentle giant, she couldn’t say no.

She nodded her head.


“Promise,” She whispered making him smile.

Theo was silent, behind her, but she could never forget he was there with his large body pressed against hers.

“Did you enjoy the kiss?”

It was a little dark but there was enough light to see her cheek redden.

“You can answer honestly, I promise I won’t be mad.”

She looked down and whispered, “Yes.”

She felt Theo’s arm tighten around her but she didn’t glance up.

“Do you find us attractive?”

She didn’t want to answer but felt she had too. Closing her eyes, she silently nodded her head once.

A pause before the next question.

“Do you understand there are many different sexualities?” Nod.

“Good, girl,” He whispered. “You’re doing well.”

Her lips twitched but she stopped herself from smiling and opening her eyes.

“Have you ever been with a bisexual person or two men at the same time?”

Why were they asking? She had no clue.

“N.. No,” She whispered, feeling the need to tell them and explain her shyness.

“I t.. Told you about hugging?” She kept her eyes closed, finding she felt less nervous that way.

“Yes,” They both said together.

“I’ve literally only ever had Mama, Grandpa and Nan as friends,” She whispered shyly, her voice breaking a little. “Other than you two…”

The silence seemed to drag on for the longest time. Minutes ticked by and nothing.

She was starting to think she said something wrong.

Maybe they didn’t see themselves as her friends.

Her eyes started to burn and then one of them finally spoke.

“I must be completely misunderstanding, but are you saying you’ve never had a boyfriend?”

She nodded.

“Have you ever been kissed by another – not family – before coming here? Ever had a man touch you in a sexual way before?” Kraven’s voice sounded strange and both men felt tense.

She shook her head, embarrassed.

“Oh shit, baby! I didn’t know. We had no idea. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have-” Theo suddenly fell silent and she was sure Kraven had something to do with it.

“I am not going to lie. I… We both are shocked. You are stunning, we were sure…” Kraven trailed off.

“You don’t have to open your eyes just yet, but I want to explain a few things to you.” She stayed silent but nodded.

“First of all, you’ll hear a lot of talk about us in town, but we want to tell you the truth.”

She smiled as she felt him play with a strand of her hair.

“Your grandparents were aware of it, but the townsfolk aren’t. Not because we are ashamed, but because many are narrow-minded and wouldn’t understand. Plus it is our business not theirs.”

She frowned unsurely but nodded to let him know she was listening.

“We have been sleeping together since we were fifteen.”

Wow, they really must love each other to still be together.

“Before you get any ideas, yes, we love each other. We are partners, but we also like women.” Her mouth opened and closed. “Let me explain. We have been friends as long as we can remember. We were both put into the home very young and we were told we were too boisterous to be adopted.”

She frown and moved an arm around him. “That’s ridiculous!”

She was angry. “All boys are!”

“Thank you,” They both chuckled. “You are perfect.” Her cheeks heated and he continued.

“We never cared about not being left behind when everyone else was taken because we had each other. But as we got older we grew more restless and wanted to explore, see the country.”

She loved listening to their story, it reminded her of times with her mama.

“We ran away and the first place we came to was here. It was just as we imagined. We camped out in the woods near here and watched the horses. One thing led to another and your grandpa found us,” He spoke fondly.

“He and Ma were both, unlike anyone we had ever met before. We fell in love with them. They were like the parents we never had. They must have felt the same because one day we were told they had official custody of us.

“They stumbled on our relationship by accident, years later. They accepted it and nothing changed in the way they treated us. But…” She leaned into his touch as he stroked her cheek.

“Our need for the female sex never disappeared. We came to the agreement, we would take women to our beds to fulfil that lust.” She was stunned to learn this. She didn’t know men like them really existed.

“I want you to understand, we never took a woman together, never dated and always made it clear before anything happened that it was only a one-night thing.”

“But it doesn’t stop some women from trying,” She heard Theo mumbled.

She didn’t understand why they were telling her this.

Maybe they were planning on bringing women over and wanted to warn her.

Sadness filled her chest but was being to hide it well behind her closed eyes

“Watching your grandparents over the years we were in awe at how much they love each other. They made us wish for a love like theirs.”

“But you do love each other?” She mumbled confusedly.

“Oh, my sweet, innocent, beautiful Vicky.” Kraven kissed her forehead.

“You still don’t get it do you?” She shook her head.

“Open your eyes now, little one.”
