Chapter 3

Iason gently laid Riki in his bed and cleaned him up as carefully as possible before dressing his wounds.

The whole time Riki laid motionless, starring at the ceiling with empty eyes as Iason whispered softly to his beloved.

When he finished the Blondie sat near Riki's head and carded his fingers through the dark locks in a soothing matter.

"Riki?"

No response.

"It's alright, you don't have to go back there, and we're never going back. I promise."

The boy nodded, numbly.

Iason smiled; at least it was a response. He leaned down and kissed Riki softly, leaving a small lick on the petal soft lips as he pulled away.

Riki gave him a small smile.

"Thank you."

Iason's eyes widened, he had never been any more than reluctantly cooperative let alone grateful for anything Iason had ever done. He had a feeling his love hadn't uttered those words more than a handful of times in his entire life.

"Of course, I never meant for anyone to hurt you."

Riki gave him a look and Iason smiled.

"I've never hurt you, have I?"

Riki snorted in disbelief.

"I'm not counting punishment, Pet."

Riki grunted in slight amusement.

Iason smiled again.

"I'm glad you finally realized that.

He leaned down and kissed the mongrel again, this time forcing it deeper as he let his tongue explore the sweet mouth of his pet. Riki had responded at first, until he felt Iason's tongue enter his mouth, then he went limp, dropping easily into the role of submission.

Iason pulled back, startled by Riki's reaction. He looked into the eyes he loved so much to see them dull, lacking their usual fire. They were almost doll like.

"Riki?"

He looked away, but Iason grabbed his chin and turned his head back.

"What's wrong?"

The boy's eyebrows knitted together.

"What do you care? I'm your pet, not your lover." He said it almost sadly and Iason was shocked. Where had this come from?

"You know it is more than that. Yes, it started that way, but things have changed. At least for me they have, and I thought they did for you too."

Riki shook his head.

"A Blondie could never love a mongrel."

"Don't call yourself that."

"Why not? It's what I am!"

Iason kissed him quickly. When they broke apart he glared into Riki's eyes.

"Don't call yourself that, ever!"

"Why not? You have."

Iason looked ashamed for a second.

"I know I have and I apologize for that, but I cannot change that now."

"But I am still only used for your pleasure."

"Who told you th—" He trailed off; he knew who had told him, that man.

"Don't believe anything he said, he doesn't know me and he doesn't know us."

"What does it matter?"

"Haven't I told you?"

Riki looked at him curiously.

"Tell me what?"

Iason smiled softly.

"I love you."

Riki's eyes widened. Had he heard that right?

"W-what?"

Iason chuckled. He had never known Riki to be speechless.

"I. Love. You."

Riki shook his head.

"You can't."

"I can do whatever I want."

Iason pulled Riki into a deep, passion filled kiss. He gently explored his pet's mouth with his tongue. He ran it along Riki's, trying to get the boy to respond. Riki slowly moved his tongue into Iason's mouth; he explored the hot, wet cavern hesitantly at first before gaining more confidence.

He pressed up and brought his hand to Iason's cheek. Iason smiled into the kiss and brought his hand between their bodies and grasped Riki's hardening member. Riki moaned lowly and pulled away from the kiss. He turned his head to the side.

"What's wrong?" Iason asked as he guided Riki's head back to look at him.

"I knew you couldn't love me."

"Why's that?"

"Because you want sex right after I was torn apart by that man."

"I wasn't going to take you."

Riki snorted in disbelief.

"Then what were you planning?"

Iason smirked before flipping them over so Riki was straddling him. Riki gave him a confusion filled look and Iason's smirked wider.

"I'm not going to take you; you are going to take me."

Riki gasped and looked at him with wide eyes.

"I-I can't. I'm your pet. A pet cannot take their master, remember?"

"I remember, but what if you weren't my pet anymore?"

"You'd let me go? Give me my freedom after all this time?"

"No, but I will remove your pet ring for an hour."

Riki thought about it for a moment before nodding his head.

Iason smiled and carefully removed the ring and set it on the table beside the bed. Riki gave Iason a small smile as thanks, as he would not again the words to his Blondie master.

"Riki, I want you to make love to me, not just fuck me."

Riki nodded, figuring he could grant that request easily.

Riki leaned down and pressed his lips to Iason's and threaded his hands through the older man's long blonde hair. Iason moaned shamelessly into his partner's hot mouth. Riki smiled, completely enjoying having Iason under him.

Iason replaced his hand on Riki's member, which he had removed when he had flipped them over. He squeezed and pumped it until it reached its full length. Riki groaned and started disrobing the man under him. Not long after they were both naked and their erections were rubbing together, causing both me to moan in appreciation.

Iason continued to pump Riki's member as Riki put two fingers in Iason's mouth. Iason sucked on them hungrily, coating them in a generous amount of saliva. He swirled his tongue around and between the digits and closed his eyes in delight. Riki smiled at him before removing his fingers.

Iason made a small disapproving noise in the back of his throat and opened his eyes.

Riki smirked, moved between Iason's legs and brought the hand under him. He poked and teased the small opening before entering the virgin hole with one finger. Iason groaned at the intrusion, not so much in pain but at the unusual feeling.

Riki pumped the finger in and out a few times before adding another. This time the intrusion was slightly painful but Iason didn't even flinch.

"Riki, just do it."

Riki nodded and slicked up his straining erection. He began to enter his Blondie, moving slowly.

"…Not slow," Iason panted.

"Fine."

Riki plunged in deep, before holding still to keep from cumming so quickly.

"Move."

Iason rocked his hips back and forth, hoping to entice his pet into moving. Riki set a slow pace at first before gaining speed; he knew he was not going to last long.

"Iason…"

"…Riki."

Riki screamed Iason's name as he came, seeing white spots dancing in his vision. Iason followed with no one touching his own member. Riki collapsed on top of the Blondie and promptly fell into a deep sleep.

Iason chuckled slightly and adjusted his pet so he was spooning the mongrel.

"I love you, Riki."

"…love you too…"
