Have & Hold – Part Two
Read Part One Here
For Valentine's Day I thought I'd revisit Kat & Peter from The Taming School, my novel with Sizzler Editions. It does happen after the novel so, if you like it, please check my novel The Taming School to discover how Kat and Peter got together. Have a happy Valentine's Day and, as always, please enjoy.
He sighed with satisfaction as he watched her reach for the belt buckle of her skirt before releasing the leather from its khaki confines. She let it drop to the floor in a discarded coil before slowly undoing and slipping out of her skirt. Peter loved her legs. Still encased in knee-high argyle socks and chunky Mary Jane heels, they were perfect. Lightly muscled and sweetly tanned. Kat was short, just over five feet tall, but she was all long limbs. Her legs strong as a vice when wrapped around his hips. And he had plans for those long, lovely lengths.
He reached out for her hand, grabbing it, and led her to the scaffolding. An odd, almost jungle-gym-ish structure, the metal frame was a strange, but thoroughly efficient shape. He stood her at a corner that was more of an open entrance to the gridded frame with an overhang above them.
He turned and walked back to grab Kat’s discarded belt, a small but sturdy stepping stool, and—after seeing it—the box cutter left lying on the floor. Taking off his own belt, he tucked the cutter into his back pocket before draping the two leather lengths over his shoulder.
“Up,” he told her as he placed the stool at her feet. He helped her onto it before he slipped off his shoes and yanked off his socks. He took one wrist and then the other, wrapping them in the cushion of his socks before binding them with the belts. He then stepped up on the stool with her, crushing his body to hers as she shifted her weight so they could both balance on the small space. Slinging the belts over the scaffold’s overhead bars, he secured her wrists shoulders’ length apart above her head. He stepped down to take in his work.
She looked beautiful, hanging there. Strung up and drawn taut. Near naked, covered only in the barest bits of white cotton. Trapped. By him.
“Pull,” he said, urging her to test the bonds before continuing. He watched as she did, tugging tentatively first before pulling harder. Yes, he thought as he watched her really struggle against the makeshift tethers, they would work.
“Feet up,” he said as he tapped the bottom bar of the scaffold with his foot.
Kat bit her lip as she twisted her hands to grab the belts’ slack to steady herself as she spread her legs so she could place her heeled feet on the bars on either side of the cutout corner. Peter walked up to her and trailed his hands up and down her now flexed arms, making her shiver. Down her sides. Over her hips.
Peter caught the thin band of her pretty, white, cotton thong. He tugged and let it snap against her hips, making her squeal and jump. He grinned as he watched her struggle on the scaffold, her arms taking on more of her weight as her heels slipped on the bars.
Oh yeah, this was going to be fun.
“Okay, Katherina,” he told her, “what’s your color?”
Remembering her safewords, she nodded. “Green,” she answered, indicating that she was good to go, ready—eager—for their game to begin.
With his own nod, he ran his hands down the slope of her back, loving the sleek feel of her shoulders and the comforting strength of her spine beneath her tank top. He could feel her instinct to sink into his touch—knew that she wanted to, was tensed against the instant reflex to. But her precarious position stopped her, keeping her slightly off-balance and limiting her movements. Peter rubbed her shoulders one more time before he swung back his hand and struck her ass in a stinging slap.
Kat let out a little yip as her body bounced and her back bowed. God, he loved how responsive she was. He spanked her again and again, switching between cheeks as she gasped and writhed beneath his touch. Even against her dark, sun-kissed skin, Peter could see the blushing bloom each blow left on her perfect ass. Entranced by the rush of blood and the sound of her husky moans, he let him lose a bit of himself in the rhythm of their ritual. Let each strike that raked and ravished her senses take his as well. Let them both sink deep in the sensations of the scene.
They were both breathing hard by the time he stopped, his palm throbbing with the same sweet, heated hum, he knew, as her ass. Peter cupped her flushed flesh in his hands, adoring her body that he’d just abused, as she let herself lean forward, her weight supported by the belts while she panted. She felt so good in his hands as he caressed her, squeezing the firm globes while she groaned and pushed herself more into his grasp.
“Touch me, Peter,” he heard her plead as she tried to wriggle in his grip, the slip of her shoes on the metal footing and the jerk of the belts above her hindering her even as they heightened her frustration. And her arousal. “Please, Peter. I need it so bad. I need you.”
“Let’s see how bad you do, Katherina.” He let his hand slide further down between her legs so he could cup her sex. She was wet and hot against his fingers. He thumbed aside her thong, revealing her slick lips so he could touch the silky heat of her arousal. The thick, rich scent of her wafted up to him, making his mouth water. He wanted more of her too. Needed her as much as she needed him.
Reaching for the box cutter he’d tucked into his pocket, he flicked the blade forward before cutting through her thong’s elastic band. Kat’s dark, lotus-shaped eyes flared as she watched him tear the cloth away from her flesh, baring her to him before tossing the now useless scrap over his shoulder.
“You could have just taken them off before, you know,” she mused, her voice husky even as she joked.
“Where’s the fun in that?” he asked as he brought the hand with the knife close to stroke her cheek, careful to let her feel the presence of the knife while keeping her safe from the blade. The way her throat constricted and her breath hitched in a rush of tremulous adrenaline as the hilt of the cutter trailed down her neck excited him.
Excited her too, if the way she flowed honeyed and hot over his fingers as he slid knuckle-deep into her pussy was any indicator. He curled his fingers deep inside her before pumping within her tight confines. His other hand continued to roughly massage her ass, feeling her—helping her—ride his fingers hard.
“Fuck, Katherina,” he ground out against her shoulder as he bent low to nibble along the flat plane of skin. “I could take you right now,” he growled before taking a sharp nip at her collarbone as he pushed himself against her thigh, pressing their bodies together. “I could slide my cock deep inside that sweet, dripping pussy,” he said as his hand fucked her, letting the image of his words fill her as surely as his fingers, “make you scream while your family and friends small-talk above us, never knowing how well you begged me while they schmoozed.”
“Please,” she moaned as the muscles in her legs and arms strained while she worked herself against him. “Please, Peter, please fuck me.” She threw her head back, her long hair falling out of the already ruined bun she’d twirled it into. “Make me scream,” she cried out, loud enough to make the cellar’s sound-proofing worth it. “Make me come.”
He loved it when she talked dirty. Usually so sweet and reserved, his Katherina could be fantastically filthy-mouthed when she wanted to be. And, Lord knew, his writer and soon-to-be wife had one talented tongue.
“You want to scream, Katherina?” he asked as he increased the speed and strength of his thrusts. “Are you going to scream for me?”
“Yes!” she gasped as her pussy began to clench. She was close. So close, he knew. Almost there.
With a satisfied smile, he pulled his fingers from her.
Kat shrieked at the loss of his fingers.
Damn it, she’d been so close! Just a stroke—one thrust or press of his fingers against her clit—and she would have crashed over the edge into her climax. Now she was frustrated. And angry. And pissed off.
And still so painfully turned on.
She tried to turn around, to get a glimpse of what Peter was doing behind her. It sounded like he was rooting through the discarded bits of furniture strewn about on the floor, but she couldn’t turn far enough to see in her position. “Peter?” she asked as she twisted back and forth. “Peter?”
She felt his hands between her thighs again, spreading her legs further. Yes!
“Feet up,” he told her as he lifted her weight, forcing her heels up to the next bar about a foot and a half above the one she was standing on. Kat lifted herself up on her belts as she hooked her heels on the higher-up bar, finding an unsteady balance as her legs tensed under the stretch.
Open wider to him, Kat felt exposed as Peter’s hands skimmed along the sensitive skin of her inner thighs. “So you want to scream,” he purred from behind her as he swept her fallen strands off the nape of her neck so he could kiss her sweetly there, “let’s make you scream.”
And she did as a sharp crack smacked across her ass.
She turned around, twisting as far as she could. “What the hell was that?” she asked, the sting still burning on her skin.
Peter smirked at her as he waved a thin wooden rod—one of the dowels from the A-frame—at her mischievously. Kat stared at the makeshift cane. While not a hard-no for her, she’d always found canes to be a tough toy. Its sting often too sharp and its burn lingering too long. It was a toy Peter only used when he wanted to test her.
She was sure she wouldn’t sit comfortably for at least a week.
“What’s your color?” he asked as he swung the cane behind her, letting her listen to the harsh, sweeping swish cut through the air.
Kat bit her lip. She was getting married in two days. Should she really be doing this? Her parents had insisted on a Catholic service. Two hours of standing, sitting, and kneeling; did she really want to be sore for that? Not to mention the reception.
But a part of her—an absolutely wicked part—was gleefully tickled by the idea. The idea of standing, sitting, and kneeling in front of a church full of people burning with the marks of their passion.
Her lips curled as that wickedness flared in her eyes. “Green,” she said before quickly adding, “but with a request to go slow.” She was okay with being tested—of pushing limits—but she didn’t want to be broken. Not this time. “And no visible marks,” she reminded him. Not for her wedding day.
“Okay,” he agreed with a nod as he twirled the rod. “Back in position,” he told her, smacking it lightly against her still stinging cheeks.
Kat straightened, locking her feet on the bars, and tried to prepare herself. Tried to slip seamlessly into subspace, something that had always felt natural—a reflex, an instinct. She breathed in deep, counting to ten, before breathing out. She closed her eyes and tried to shut out the world. Shut out the party in the bar. Shut out all the guests. Even shut out Peter and herself. Letting her mind focus solely on the sensations running through her body.
The tug of the belts at her wrists. The stinging stripe that first strike had left. The wobble of her feet and the stretch of her legs on the scaffolding.
“Trying to relax, Kat?” Peter asked as he stalked behind her. “Trying to keep your body loose?” He tapped the wood against the back of her upper thigh just hard enough to bite. “But you can’t, can you?” He struck her again an inch lower before continuing down in a ladder-pattern along her thigh in precise, even strikes set in a neat, perfect row.
Kat hissed at each blow, her already stiff muscles clenching as she flinched. “Strung up like you are,” Peter said, sounding rather amused as he moved up one thigh only to continue down the other, “relaxing is pretty much an impossibility, isn’t it?” With her skin now warmed—primed—he struck her harder, making her jump and cringe at each hit. “It makes it worse, doesn’t it?” he said, each exact blow finding its target even as he picked up speed. “All that tension making the impact just that much more intense.”
She felt her knees buckle. “Peter!” she cried out as her legs shook violently, not even in pain, per se. It hurt—it did—like a sear that sliced through her senses. It shouldn’t have felt good. Kat was almost sure that it didn’t. Not really. Not in any way that made sense.
But the flood of adrenaline and the drowning swim of endorphins washed over her, turning the blistering pain into something sweeter. Something she craved. She felt her body shake with it, felt it writhe and move of its own volition. Completely out of control. She felt taken over by chemicals and a force—Peter’s will—that seemed so much stronger than her.
She allowed herself to be consumed by it, to give over and give in, for a moment before allowing reality to rein her back just before she tipped over her breaking point. “Peter,” she gasped as she gripped the belts, letting the tough leather cut into her palms and pull her from the depth of her pleasure, “yellow.” She licked her lips as her legs threatened to give. “No more. Please, Peter, no more.”
She heard him drop the dowel on the floor before he came to stand in front of her. Wrapping his arms around her waist, he lifted her, taking on more of her weight as he heaved her hips up so they could rest on his own, thankfully relieving the ache in her arms and legs. “Are you calling yellow,” he asked, “or red?”
Was she asking to slow the scene down? Or did she need to stop?
Kat tucked her head into the crook of his neck, breathing in the warm, homey scent of him, letting it comfort and surround her. She let herself hang, let him carry her, as she looked about the room.
She had so many amazing memories of this place, from the moment she’d met Peter here that hot, humid day so long ago to this very moment. Each was a special moment of her life that she would savor forever. And while Donovan’s—the heart and idea of it—wasn’t going anywhere, after the renovation, this space which held so much of their history, of them, in it would be forever gone. She would never be here—in this exact place—ever again.
And, even if a part of her knew she would pay for it later—maybe even all through her wedding and whatnot—Kat wasn’t quite ready to let it go yet. “Yellow,” she said again, leaning back to look him in the eye. She wanted to give this place a proper good-bye.
Peter gazed at his future wife for a moment, marveled by his good fortune. She was the most giving partner he’d ever had. Always surprising him with how willing and open she was while still staying true to the heart of her. It made him want to give her everything. Anything she asked and whatever she needed.
Even dangling helpless in a dungeon, she had such power over him. Had a hold on his heart that scared and thrilled him.
Feeling his control slip a bit, he reached for the cutter in his pocket again and sliced through the top of her thin tank top, cutting an inch-long slit at the top. He needed her naked. He didn’t quite know why it was so important but, for the moment, he wanted to see, to touch, to take those wild, hot parts of her that she’d never allowed anyone else to. Those parts of her that belonged only to him. Pawing at the cut’s edges, he tore it apart.
Bared before him, Kat was stunning. Her small, pert breasts heaved as the tattered tails of her shirt fluttered down to frame her delicate form. His hands cupped her soft, rounded belly before coasting up to grasp those firm breasts. Her dark nipples were hard and tight, begging to be sucked.
He flicked them with his thumbs, making her pant and arch beneath his touch. Drawing her closer, he wrapped his lips around one flushed tip before turning to suck the other just as sweetly. He felt more than heard her gasp as he sunk his teeth into the tender flesh, biting down with enough pressure to shoot an electric shock straight to her pussy as his hand pinched her other nipple just as mercilessly.
“Peter,” she whimpered, her feet slipping as she tried to press closer to him, “God, that’s so good.”
He leaned back against her arch, smiling with clenched, bared teeth as she cried out at the painful pinch of skin still caught in his ruthless grip, before letting her go to sway a bit unsteadily on the bars.
With a smug satisfaction and regained control, he shucked his shirt and pants, seeing her eyes blaze as she watched him reveal his body to her avid gaze. He would never get over how much she enjoyed his body. How she seemed to see something in him that no one else—not even himself—could see.
Don’t get him wrong, it wasn’t like he was unattractive, but he was keenly aware of just how average he was. He didn’t work out, not really. Not with any kind of regularity. He was far more likely to sit at his desk all day than lift weights or run. And his body showed it. It wasn’t something he was terribly comfortable with, but had long ago accepted. He was never going to be some gym-sculpted hard-body; he was a computer geek with thick-lens glasses and that wasn’t about to change.
But, when Kat looked at him, it was like she saw someone behind the glasses and the untoned form. He slipped off his glasses to set them aside with his clothes, smiling as she gazed at him as if he were the alter ego the comic book lover in him always dreamed of being.
With a roguish smile, he simply said, “Up.” Wrapping his hands around her thighs, he heaved her up one last time, making her squeal as her feet struggled to kick over the next highest bar, hooking her knees around the scaffold’s hold. He saw her face wince as she adjusted to the new position, the stress on her weighed-down arms and spread-wide legs almost too much to bear.
He placed the step stool that still sat waiting below her closer to him before sinking to his knees on it. He heard Kat hiss as her hips hitched, knowing that she felt terribly exposed stretched out before him, his face perfectly lined up with her bared, wet pussy.
He inhaled deep, taking in the heady scent of her, before he bent forward to lick her slick lips. God, she tasted good. Like heat and desire and woman. Dipping his tongue between her labia, he flicked at her tight opening before nipping at her sensitive, parted flesh. With her opened to him, he let her arousal drip like honey onto his tongue before trailing wet kisses up to her clit.
He could feel her legs tense and kick as he lapped at that needy nub. Her arms flexed as she tried to tilt and swing her hips close while he suckled at her. He could hear her loud, keening moans while her body bucked and arched in pleasure and in pain.
He brought one hand up to dip deep into her pussy, coating his fingers in her heat before lowering them down so he could grab his throbbing cock in his fist. Feeling her wetness slip along his skin, he stroked himself as he ate at her, the smell and taste and feel of her desire fueling his own. His grip on his dick tightened as he felt a flutter shudder through her, signaling the start of her orgasm.
Her cry was sharp as she pulled herself high on her tethers while her body bowed almost to the breaking point, shoving herself more firmly against him with such force it shocked him. He took one last deep breath before he plunged his tongue into her clenching core, letting her climax flow over him a moment before he let his own crashing end thrust him over the edge as well.
He allowed himself a moment as he lost his grip on the world—just a moment to wallow in the perfection of them together—before wiping his hand on his leg and forcing himself to his feet.
Lord, he didn’t want to move.
Needed to collapse into a useless heap on the floor, replete and completely satisfied.
But he knew he couldn’t keep Kat strung up like that. Weightlessly, she hung on the bars like a puppet tangled in its own strings. Summoning the last of his strength, he untwisted her legs from the bars and kicked the stool beneath her. Stepping up onto it with her, he reached up to unbind the belts, lowering her arms carefully, rubbing feeling back into the quivering limbs.
With gentle hands, he eased her onto her stomach on the floor before tenderly massaging her arms and legs. She felt boneless beneath him as she made small, contented sounds muffled in the mat.
When his own exhaustion overtook him, he joined her on the floor, laying beside her before wrapping her up in his arms. He kissed the top of her head sweetly. “I love you,” he whispered against her hair.
“I love you too,” she said, cuddling up on his chest as her eyes fluttered shut.
They’d barely had time to breathe before a knock sounded at the door. “I’m sorry to disturb you, but I need to leave and I’d appreciate getting my keys back,” his friend’s voice said through the door, “and I do believe one of the bridesmaids just called your mom, wanting to talk to you, Kat.”
Kat groaned as she buried her face in his shoulder. “I’m sure that’s Max,” she said on a sad sigh. “Her grandmother was rushed to the hospital yesterday.” She frowned as she looked up to face him. He knew Kat would miss having her best friend at her wedding. Max wasn't his favorite person—Lord knew, he wasn't hers—but he would be sorry she wouldn't be there for Kat too.
He hugged her before they stood up. “Ready to face all of them then?” he asked her, gesturing to the bar as he leaned back to look at her while she nimbly stretched.
“Sure,” she said, straightening with an accepting shrug. “So long as you’re there with me,” she added as she reached out a hand to him to help him to his feet, an almost eager look in her eye. “You’re worth it.”
