To the Light
a novella by Mardi
from Changeling Press
an excerpt. Enjoy!
The first step of the ritual was for the four men in each grouping to greet
each other with a hug. After asking his name and where he came from, information
Val knew they already had, the three Apollans introduced themselves to Val.
Each man was gorgeous and sexy in a unique way.
A man with dark purple skin and short purple hair went first. “I’m Chaud
Rayze.” Chaud would take the aft position unless Val directed him to do otherwise.
Judging from the size of the erection tenting out his loincloth, Val figured
he was in for quite a ride and indicated Chaud should stay right where he
Brule Flame, whose bright orange hair lived up to his name, took top position,
while blond Lumin Bianco sat facing Val’s crotch. Despite his mix of emotions,
Val’s carnal nature sprang forth and demanded precedence. Everything in the
room -- sexy music and the sensual scents of testosterone and musk -- was
designed to seduce. Val knew Paul was nearby, simultaneously being serviced
by three hunks as attractive as those now focused on pleasing him.
Chaud began to nuzzle Val from behind. To provide a sample of the goodies,
Chaud wedged his huge erect cock into the crease of Val’s ass.
Val figured good manners required him to participate fully. All right. Chaud’s
cock felt amazing and, despite all his emotional stuff, Val felt very turned
on. After all, he’d entered paradise. When in Rome… Who knew what the future
held? If the Apollans became angrier and more upset about Retkove, they could
very well revoke their welcome. Val moaned his appreciation.
Chaud thrust his hips forward to provide Val with even more of a foretaste.
“Any special requests for your ass fucking?”
A question he’d never heard before. Then Val remembered Paul’s Apollan self-lubing
function, which he’d lost in the transformation. “Unlike you Apollans, I’m
not a self-luber.”
“Not to worry. I’ve got you covered.” Chaud began to massage some lube into
Val’s rear opening with a very talented finger. Actually, the lubing felt
good enough to bring him off. Val, who’d been half-erect or better since
he got off the damn rocket, felt his cock ratchet up to full, close to bursting.
With the back engaged, the two frontal greeters went into gear. Lumin Bianco
licked his lips at the sight of Val’s burgeoning hard-on. “With your permission?”
Val readily agreed to the Apollan’s talented stroking of his dick and balls.
At the same time, he watched Brule stroke his own impressive package.
Val knew Apollans did actually devote time and energy to activities other
than sex. But judging from this ritual, Val wondered how they managed to
drag themselves away. He began to question how Paul could ever have been
satisfied with just him as his lover.
But then he had to turn his attention to other matters. “Would you like me
to suck your cock?” Lumin invited.
Val remembered Paul’s special sun glands, which Val had happily experienced
the first time Paul sucked him off. Paul had also lost these glands upon
becoming a vampire. Val, already excited, accepted. And then he took Brule’s
huge, well-shaped cock in his own mouth.
In time to the erotic beat of the music, Val moved with the men greeting
him. The erotic sensations pulsed through the four of them, melding them
into a single unit. These guys knew what they were doing. Val, grateful Paul
was experiencing similar pleasure at the same time, gave himself up to the
sensations. For a brief moment, Val wondered if Paul also experienced regret
at his losses -- the unique abilities and organs his fellow Apollans took
for granted. But lost in the hedonism of being sole focus of three magnificent
lovers, Val surrendered to the moment.
True to his word, Chaud had generously slathered Val’s crease and hole with
a gel that warmed and soothed, smoothing the way for the large man’s entrance.
With small, subtle hip thrusts, Chaud wedged his way into Val. He teased
Val, giving him little bits and making him want more. By the time Chaud thrust
himself fully into him, Val groaned with delicious relief. He contracted
his muscles and moved to let Chaud know he wanted him exactly where he was.
At the same time, Lumin turned his talented fingers and mouth loose on Val’s
grateful cock. With his fingers he stroked Val’s balls, coaxing them, teasing
them, and massaged the sensitive skin of his inner thighs. Though Val hadn’t
remembered how the sun glands felt, Lumin reminded him. The glands made it
feel as if Lumin had a dozen tongues and a hundred teeth all devoted to pleasuring
him. As a vampire, Val was especially attuned to the exquisite feel of fangs
brushing across sensitive skin. The sun glands felt like sharper, finer teeth
skimming his engorged glans, tracing the ridges of his shaft.
Determined to give as good as he got, Val opened his lips to Brule’s long,
thick cock. The erotic combination of the two men pleasuring his cock and
ass while he licked and sucked another gorgeous man off had Val hanging on
by his fingertips. He couldn’t just savor the sensuousness of his position
because he also had to focus on providing for Brule. Though feeling at a
distinct disadvantage without sun glands and the kinds of expertise these
men had, Val considered it a personal challenge to satisfy Brule. He
figured enthusiasm, vampiric teeth and a well-muscled tongue could make up
for any lack in exotic technique.
Though this sex had none of the emotional content of lovemaking with Paul,
Val experienced the overwhelming pleasure almost as an erotic interlude.
And he never forgot that he and Paul would complete their climaxes with a
mutual feed. Knowing he and Paul would be in each other’s arms for the ultimate
vampiric orgasm kept Val’s hesitation from hampering him.
He felt completely enthralled -- as if, just for now, he was the center of
a very special universe. If anything happened now to prevent them from coming,
Val would have lost it.
In tandem, the four moved like a well-regulated unit. The sexual tension
rose like a cloud that enveloped them as the level of arousal drew them tighter.
They began to move faster, harder -- so well coordinated that when Chaud
withdrew, Lumin thrust forward. Val, trying to fall in with the rhythm, let
Brule take the lead. Even the sounds Brule and Chaud made, their murmuring,
moans and sighs, harmonized.
Despite the freedom they all enjoyed, Val knew the greeters remained
in control of every tiny movement and sound. Hell, he was the wild card in
this bunch, the one whose experience and anatomy didn’t quite conform. He’d
expected them to need time to figure him out, given his totally alien nature.
But nothing fazed them. If he’d sprouted an extra head or dick or begun bleating,
his gut told him they’d take it all in stride and make delicious lemonade
from any surprise lemons.
