The first thing he looked at was Matt's bed once they were back home. He quickly looked away
before he could let anger rush him and make him do something stupid. He was feeling a lot
better now. He still hurt but he knew that that wouldn't go away for a bit and he still had to get
used to the angel being inside of him..even if he mentally refused to. Tai slowly lowered
himself to his own bed and winced once he sat down.
"Matt?" the name was foreign on his tongue and forced to sound civil. "May I ask question?"
He looked up at him yet only met his nose. The human kept his face free of emotions, nothing
showing in his eyes or by the lines of his mouth. Yet, his body was tense, ready to be forced
down again. "I want to work with Sora."
Matt's eyes followed Tai's as he looked at the bed where they had coupled the night
before. "Don't worry, love," he murmured lowly, "I changed the top fur out. It is clean." He said
slowly. He was surprised to see Tai going to sit on his own bed. "You will be sharing my bed
now, love. I thought it would be obvious but I know it'll take some time for you to get used to
things," he said as gently as he could but leaving no room for argument. He had tried to treat
Tai better but that had gotten them no where. Now, he would be gentle but firm.
Matt was rather surprised when Tai asked him whether he could work with Sora. Truth be told,
he did not like the idea very much - not with the way other alphas looked at Tai whenever
they saw him. There was something defiant in the dark human & Matt knew it made other, more
violent alphas want to break him. Matt wanted to preserve that fire in Tai... he inherently knew
it made the brunette special. Not to mention that Tai would see Raeson for sure if he worked
with Sora. Matt really didn't like that.
But he had promised himself that he would try to be more civil to Tai. So the least he could
do was hear him out. "Why?" he asked simply as he got started on the daily task of preparing
dinner; tonight, it was simple rabbit stew.
Tai tried not to cringe when he was told that his new bed would be with Matt for the rest of the
his time here...possibly for the rest of his life. He made no move in getting up from his old bed.
They had to sleep together from now on. Sleeping was not sitting. The less contact with the
angel was the better for the human.
"Learning," he started. "I can learn better. More people to talk to and learn language. Gives
me something to do." He really hoped that Matt would take his words and think about them.
Yes, more angels would see him and interact with him..but he would be able to communicate
with the angel a lot faster if he said yes.
It went without saying that it would also keep him sane if he didn't have to sit in Matt's home all
day and wait for him to bring dinner ad rape him as much as he would like. If he could get out,
at least for a few hours, he would enjoy his life a lot more than he was now. Not saying that he
didn't enjoy his time with Sora now, but she was all that he spoke to aside from Raeson..And he
wouldn't be surprised if he would see the elder angel a lot less now. All the hope that he had
left was put him still being able to see Raeson. If the one person in this world that made him
happy was taken away from him. Tai wasn't sure what he would do.
Tai did have a point. Matt knew it would be good for the both of them if Tai could understand
things better. It might even give him a chance to see how other angels behaved … the more
calculating parts of his mind added. Matt pushed the thought away - schooling his face into
neutrality as he added some herbs to the rabbit stew and put a lid on the pot.
"Learning? Well... that certainly is a noble goal," Matt drawled, turning away from fire to pin his
blue eyes on Tai. He noticed the way the brunette had not taken his hint about moving to
their shared bed now and smirked. Stubborn little human... you're lucky you're so beautiful...
otherwise my patience would be a lot lower.
"How about I let you earn the privilege of doing this?" Matt murmured, making his way over to his
own bed and sitting down, legs sprawled cockily apart. He wasn't wearing a shirt and the bulge
in his pants was growing larger as he studied Tai's bronze frame in the light of the flickering
flames. "You can prove to me how eager you are to be a student by riding me tonight."
Chocolate eyes narrowed as the human took in the angel's half naked form and the large bulge
in his pants. His legs were spread and it was obvious that he expected something sexual from
the human who simply glared at him and shuddered once he had translated the words. His
learning would now be based on how well he preformed for the angel? Tai didn't think so, he
wasn't going to have sex with the angel just to get something he wanted.
'But what if I don't see Raeson again? What if Matt takes away my visits to Sora and leaves me
here to be all alone while i wait for him to return?' He frowned at the thought and looked away
from the angel. There was a possibility that the angel would make more than just this ride on
what Tai wouldn't or would get and that would become a serious problem for him.
'If I don't look at him it won't be so bad..and despite everything else, he does have a nice body.
If i think of him as someone else..it may not be so terrible.' He shook his head and looked back
up at the angel, taking in his appearance and trying to morph it into brown eyes and darker
Matt smirked when he heard Tai's response. "The food's going to take about an hour to cook
through - so why don't you come over here and put on a little show for me, darling?" He patted
the bed next to him.
Tai bit his lip and glared hard at the wall for several minutes. He had agreed to do this, but
why did he have to do more than ride the stupid angel? Slowly, he stood and took slow and
nearly hesitant steps towards the angel, ending his steps at the side of his bed and lowering
himself to sit down next to the angel.
"What would you have me do?" There was no need to even try and be seductive-he wasn't
doing this to be nice or even to enjoy it, there would always be a reason for him to play with the
Matt was starting to lose his patience. It took several minutes for Tai to do as he was asked
- the slender brunette gingerly made his way across and sat down next to him, without even
bothering to look at Matt.
"Listen sweetheart," Matt sighed, turning to Tai and turning that lovely face towards him. "I'm
letting you do this to prove to me how important this to you." He paused, leaning down to kiss
soft lips. "If I have to do the work here, you can say goodbye to this little work-study program
completely," he flexed a large hand on Tai's hips.
"Make me believe that you want me." Matt added as final instruction.
Great! So he had to make himself enjoy this and make the angel believe that he wanted it too.
Tai sighed and closed his eyes for a moment, willing himself to enjoy this and not think of it as
a chore that he would have to grow accustomed to.
One hand reached up to touch the side of Matt's face, stroking a strong cheek bone. He leaned
forward to kiss him softly, licking the angel's bottom lip as he closed his eyes and let his free
hand rest on his chest. Fingers stroked up and down his chest, thumbing a nipple and gently
scratching over its twin.
He pulled away from the kiss and stood only to place himself in the angel's lap. He teased him
by slowly lowering himself down onto his lap, round ass rubbing the bulge in his pants as he
leaned forward to suck a nipple into his mouth and gently graze his teeth over the hardening
Finally! Tai had certainly dragged his feet along following the simple instructions Matt had
given him. But now that he had started, Matt had to admit he was doing a pretty good job of
making it believable. Then again... after last night and the constant whimpers of 'stop', even the
simple kiss seemed like Taii was putting on a strip-tease.
Matt couldn't keep his groan in when the brunette gently lowered himself into his lap. His hands
immediately cupped those toned globes – first through the material of his pants before sliding
them inside the rough cloth material to fondle the silky skin. When Tai rocked his ass against
him, he responded by teasingly rubbing his hard arousal against his ass.
"You're doing just fine, sweetheart," he groaned again as he felt a fingernail scratch against his
nipple. His own hands slid out from the pants only to settle underneath Tai's shirt, fingering
those dusky nipples lightly before he leaned down to pull one into his lips. When he pulled
away, he left a wet stain around the nub and then kissed Tai's forehead again, hands once
again settling on Tai's perfect ass.
"How about you take those pants off sweetheart?" He asked.
The hand on Matt's cheek slid down to wrap around his neck as the angel's fingers rubbed his
nipples and then a hot mouth was around one. His chest arched into Matt's mouth and his hips
pushed down onto Matt's cock, rubbing faster as those large hands held and rubbed his ass.
His own mouth moved from nipple to nipple as his tongue flicked out to tease each numb until
they were left shining and wet. Tai swallowed thickly, his own cock hardening in his pants,
and looked up at the angel-meeting his eyes for the first time since this started. He heard the
question and mentally shoved away all doubt and fear as he stood and pushed his pants down
his legs, taking them off and lowering himself back down to sit in the angel's lap. Next, he took
off his own shirt and sat naked in his lap.
Taking a deep breath, he wrapped both arms around his neck and kissed him, rolling his hips
down and letting out a soft moan as the material of Matt's pants and his hard cock rubbed
against his now-cool skin. Yet, his body was growing hotter with each moment. His heart
beating quickly and skin flushing an embarrassing pink. If he let himself go, it wouldn't be so
bad to submit to the pleasure taking over his body and shooting through his veins. Still..he
couldn't keep his gaze level with Matt's. The blue of his eyes made him remember that night
and how he was taken without any thought of his feelings. If he could just imagine brown
instead of blue and white..this would all be so much easier.
Tai was flushed the most becoming shade of pink, Matt decided as he studied the brunette
through the haze of lust settled over. His mouth was quickly swelling from the pressure of
forceful kisses between them. If nothing else, Tai's body wanted this. That would have to be
enough for now … one part of Matt decided. Another part immediately pushed the thought away:
what more did he want from the brunette?
A jolt of lust went straight to his groin as those chocolate eyes finally met his - and not because
Matt had forced Tai to look at him. The brunette had turned up those big eyes from his own
volition; Matt was intoxicated. He had only seconds to admire the brunette's slender frame
before Tai was back in his lap again, legs wound around Matt's waist.
The feeling of those globes against his cotton pants became too much - he needed skin on
skin contact now! He had very little manuverability at the moment but he managed to wiggle
himself out of his pants as he kept his mouth connected to Tai's. Finally his erection was free!
Matt didn't waste any time, immediately letting the tip graze Tai's puckered entrance. "Are
you going to need preparation, love?" He asked softly as he attached his mouth to the shell of
He froze for a moment as the too familiar feel of Matt's cock against his entrance. A shudder
went through his body as his ear was mouthed and the weight of Matt's words hit him like a train.
He was about to willingly give himself to the angel just so he would be allowed something-he
was no better than the whores that lined the entrance to bigger cities in his old kingdom. No, he
couldn't think that way-not when he was so close to getting what he wanted...and his body had
enjoyed what Matt did to him..Once he let go of the idea of rape.
The human shook his head no and lowered his eyes to stare at the angel's lean chest. He knew
for a fact that he was still stretched enough for this to work without there being too much pain.
Nothing would be like the first time when he was forced to get used to something so large inside
of him. Tai pushed every thought to the back of his mind and placed one hand to the base
of Matt's cock. He held himself just over the tip and bit into his bottom lip as he pushed himself
down and the head of Matt's cock slid inside of him.
Matt hissed as Tai aligned himself against his dick and pushed down, impaling himself. "Ahh...
still tight, love...," Matt murmured. Experimentally, he jabbed his hips up - testing to see how
open Tai still was inside. He managed to push in a third of the way in just one go.
Matt kept his promise. The next morning, he dropped Tai off at the army offices to spend the
day with Sora once again, letting her know he was cool with Tai working at the offices. "He's
earned the right," Matt explained, as he leaned down to capture Tai's mouth in a quick, rough
kiss and whispering, "Don't get into too much trouble sweetheart." Then he sauntered out the
door leaving the two humans to themselves.
Sora didn't want to know what Tai had done to earn the privilege of being of working with her.
Instead she focused on the positive. "You look like you're doing a lot better than yesterday -
ready to start a hard day's work? Lots of angels coming in today to drop off their time-sheets.
There was another raid last night."
Tai sighed at the mention of another raid. That would mean that more humans would be
subjected to abuse from angels. "Today is better, yes," he agreed with a slight smile. He really
didn't want to think about last night-not at all. After being made to ride the angel just so that he
could work with Sora-he didn't want to think about that again or even have to do sexual favors
for the angel just to get what he wanted. The cream had also helped lessen the pain once they
were done. "Thank you for the cream," he added and smiled in slight excitement. The human
really was excited to be able to work with Sora. It would take his mind from a lot of things while
he busied himself with helping the other human.
"What will I be doing today?" Sora would have to train him in the proper procedures before he
could be of full use to her. She smiled at him and took him behind the desk, showing him the
proper bins, desk, drawers, and other things that he would need to know about. At least for the
"And this is where you put away the time-sheet once an angel has filled it out after a raid," she
said, showing him a chest of drawers that had a bunch of papers. "We keep these records so
we know when an angel has been out on a raid and the level of difficultly the raid was. It lets us
rotate the raids so no angel is out more than three times a month. It used to be twice a month
before but things have gotten really dangerous with a couple of cities - we lost about a fifth of
all the alphas in one raid on Jilai. Arjun was in that raid - he got hurt pretty bad." She added
She was just about ready to show him the supply closet when the front door opened and an
angel walked in carrying an unconscious blond human boy in his arms. Recognizing that the
situation probably wasn't good, Sora immediately rushed out from behind the desk. "Did you
capture him last night, NMattn?" She asked the angel gruffly as she checked for a pulse, relieved
to find one.
The angel nodded nonchalantly. "Yea - I brought him home yesterday. He passed out early this
morning sometime," He growled, obviously annoyed. "Damn Eastern humans - this one's 17
years old and still so weak."
Sora turned to Tai, "Clear the table off in the back room - he's bleeding pretty badly. We're
probably going to have to stitch him up." Then she motioned for NMattn to follow her with the
boy. Once the angel had laid the boy down on the table, he headed straight for the door - telling
Sora he'd be back for the boy later that afternoon.
Sora had Tai help her cut away the cloth wrapped around the boy and then turned him
onto his front, laying him with his legs spread open. There was ample blood and cum pooled
between his thighs and his body looked badly bruised. "Looks like he tried to run and NMattn got
a little violent with him," she explained. "Thank god he's already passed out - we're not going to
have to sedate him atleast." She motioned for Tai to come watch her as she grabbed a needle
and thread set and started sewing the wounds inside him as best as she could. "Wipe down his
body, Tai," she instructed. "There's warm water boiling in a pot in the next room. Use that."
Kou returned with the pot of water and a towel. He tried not to think about everything the boy
had been through with the amount of blood and cum on his body. Each wipe on the boy's body
was as gentle as he could be. He didn't want to cause him any more pain that he already knew
he had been through. Some of the bruises on the boy's body were a nasty purple lined with
yellow but most of them were a deep blue or black.
Looking at the blond made him swallow thickly and fight off his want to cry for him. The blond
was only 17 and would now be forced into slavery because the angels believed he was beneath
them. His mind was made up at that very moment, he was going to help any and all humans
that he could just like Sora did. He would have to learn how to stitch up wounds like Sora and
what medicine did what-his work was cut out for him. "Sora," voice soft and filled with too many
emotions, "I want to learn everything you know." He looked at her with determination and
sorrow in his eyes. "I want to be able to help..just like you do."
Sora nodded - she could see how hard of a time Tai was having controlling his emotions. "He
should be all right, Tai," she said softly. "He's lost some blood and he's beaten up - it's his
mental status that I'm worried about really." She had finished sewing up the tears and now
bandaged the boy up and turned him onto his back again.
"He looks so young, doesn't he?" She said, laddling some water into his mouth. "He's probably
got parents at home who are terrified about him. NMattn doesn't keep his captives forever
though - hopefully he'll be back home in a few months."
The water seemed to help the boy and he started to cough - before long, he was opening huge
green eyes. He took one look at the unfamiliar faces above him and started to cry. "Please...
please don't hurt me anymore."
Tai took his hand and gently pushed back blond hair from his sweating forehead. "No, no
don't worry," he whispered. "We're humans, we won't hurt you." He kept his voice soft and as
soothing as he could. There was nothing he could do to stop the tears sliding down his face.
"We won't hurt you," he soothed.
Sora looked at him with a sad smile. She knew that it would slowly become easier for him
to hold in his emotions when other humans were brought in after they had been raped or
something else just as terrible, or worse, had happened to them. "My name is Sora and this is
Tai. We just want to help you," her voice was just as soft as Tai's. She had too many years
of practice with scared humans waking up while she tended to them. She knew all too well what
that fear once you woke up was like.
"Hu… humans?" The boy asked furtively, his eyes darting between Tai and Sora, looking for
those hated white wings like the ones that blond man had. He relaxed a little once he saw no
"What's your name, little one?" Sora asked the boy. She didn't ask any questions about his
family because she did not know when he would see them again – best not to remind the child
of what he has lost. "How old are you?" She asked to reconfirm.
"My name is Rei…," the blond croaked back. "I'm 17 years old – that … thing… that brought
me here. The one with the wings… he's an angel isn't he? I heard of them back in Najal… but I
never seen one before yesterday. Wish I didn't see him now either." He sobbed out.
"It's all right Rei," Sora said quietly. "Did you come in the dirigible or did NMattn carry you up?"
She needed information if there were other victims that would need tending to. If the boy was in
the dirigible, he might have seen other prisoners.
"There was a big balloon thing that could fly – it was me and 2 other people from my city. They
put us in a cage in the back… Two girls. One of the girls… she was in bad shape… and one of
those monsters was raping her right in front of us. He let his friend have a go at her too." Rei
looked away, not wanting to remember the sight of the angels taking turns.
"Did you come yesterday too?" He asked, glancing between Sora and Tai. "You don't look like
you're from Najal," he said, pinning his eyes on Tai's crying face. "How did you come here?"
Tai took a breath and swallowed before he could answer. He had to turn away from Rei and
clear his mind to stop his tears. "No, I've been here..for a while now. I'm from Mireu. An angel
kidnapped me during a raid and brought me here, just like you." It hurt more than he would like
to admit to say those words. He had been captured after he tried to make Matt leave-to protect
him. If he had never been kidnapped and then raped..Matt could have been his friend if he
really tried. He knew it was impossible but the thought was nice.
Sora shook her head also. "I've been here for many years. It gets..easier if you don't fight,
please remember that." Tai was starting to think that was her warning to all humans. Don't
fight the angels and the rape won't be so bad. Her words were true too. The more you
fought..the worse it would be.
He wanted to know someone had experienced the same things he had. "That monster… I was
trying to hide my little sister in our cellar. I was going to go out and help my mother defend our
horses – that's what my family does. My dad died years ago – it's just me, my mom and my
little sister now…," He sobbed but held back his tears, determined not to lose anymore of his
dignity. "Next thing I know that monster was forcing me to the ground and then he… he…,"
He trailed off, this time not wanting to remember his own rape. "My little sister… she ran out
and saw the whole thing. And he … smiled … at her. Told me he was taking me, that I should
behave or she would be coming along with us." An angry fire blazed in his eyes. "So I was a
good little boy… He took me to that flying machine and threw me in that cage. I really thought
things couldn't get any worse…," Then his voice sounded even more bitter. "But I was wrong."
Sora cut in. "You don't have to tell us anymore…," she said quietly. She was completely familiar
with this story.
Rei laughed. "Not talking about it isn't going to change what happened. At night, he tied me up
… he didn't prepare me… he just pushed himself in – over and over… into my mouth… I tried to
run a couple of times and he beat me real good - I didn't think I would live to see this morning.
Guess I wouldn't have made it if hadn't been for you two." He looked emotionlessly at them, as
if telling them his story had broken what little spirit he had inside him.
Rei turned his whole attention on Tai. "So you came here recently? Did your angel do this to
Without his consent, his mind put him in Rei's place with Matt in the place newly kidnapped
human's captor. Yet..the images didn't last long. Too soon they morphed into Matt preparing
him, easing his way inside, and masturbating him off so that the human wold find pleasure
also. The entire honesty of what Sora had been saying to him hit him in the chest, in his heart,
making tears well up in his eyes again.
He had to lie to Rei-he couldn't give him the hope that he had seen and let slip through
his fingers with Matt. "Not..not as bad, but yes. He's raped me too." The human didn't go
into details and would like to keep it that way. Tai's first time with Matt seemed more like
something lovers would do than a captive with his captor.
The reality was that he owed Matt so much for what he had done and how he had taken him. It
made him think, grudgingly, different about the angel. The angel that had taken Rei may not
be the nicest or even the meanest..Rei's story could be like child's play compared to what other
humans had face. Kou really was the luckiest human in a long while-if ever.
Sora could see the effect Rei's story was having on Tai. And she didn't like it one bit. She
pulled him out of Rei's ear-shot and whispered quietly to him in simple Anglerian so that only
Tai would understand. "Don't make Matt into a saint, Tai," she said warningly. "He isn't as
hard as the rest of them because he's still young - but he is an Angel. And he is capable of
causing you a lot of pain."
Then she turned back to Rei. "I have to go and see where the two girls who came with you are
today, little one." She told him. "Tai it would be really good if you would stay at the office and
handle the angel time-sheets as they come in. I know it seems like a lot to take in in one day but
I've got to get to those Najal-girls as fast as possible. You can keep an eye on Rei too while I'm
gone. Think you can handle it?"
Tai took a breath and steeled himself with her words. She was right. Matt was not a sainthe
was nothing like one. He just wasn't as old as the other angels and so he was without their
anger and fears-he was nearly pure in that fact. Yet, he couldn't stop himself from realizing that
he really didn't hate Matt...because the angel had tried. He had failed when anger got the best
of him, but he had tried. That was almost enough for Tai.
Dark eyes widened as he stared into her eyes. Sora did have to find those girls. The two had a
better chance of living if Sora could find them. "I'll do my best," he offered with an encouraging
smile. "You do your best too. Please find them," it was almost a beg, a plead. "What should I
do with Rei?" He seemed so broke and Tai didn't know what to do to help him. He took in a
breath and walked back towards Rei. "It's just me and you today," he said with a smile. "You
can relax-you need to rest without worry."
Raeson was looking forward to visiting the army offices today. If luck favored him, he would see
Tai. The thought of the beautiful human brought a smile to his face and he picked up his pace.
He noticed something surprising - the streets looked fairly empty. The raid yesterday had been
a success - the alphas would be out celebrating. It's early still... Raeson decided. The raid had
gone late into the night. They are probably sleeping in - he knew for sure atleast 3 of the alphas
had new captives.
He was surprised to find the front desk empty when he walked into the army office. "Sora?" He
called to the back. "Anyone here?"
Tai grinned once he heard a familiar voice and quickly walked to the front desk. "Hello,
Raeson." He tried not to show how giddy with happiness he was at seeing the angel so unlike
the others. "I'm filling in for Sora today. She went to find the other humans that were captured
last night." There was no need for him to go into details about their conditions. He was sure
that Raeson either knew then or would hear about them when other angels gloated about their
Raeson smiled and nodded his head at Tai all too pleased that he was seeing the human.
If he had his way, the human would be safe with him. Tai would never have to worry about
being hurt in his care-he could assure the human of that. "You don't have to worry about her.
If anyone can find the other humans she can. They'll be safe with her." He knew about what
the other angels had done to the humans caught last night and it filled him with sorrow to know
that his kind were such monsters. No human deserved to be raped and hurt for an angel's
Raeson got over his initial elation at seeing Tai and studied him closer - there were very large
hickeys on his throat and an obvious limp in his gait. Tai belonged to an angel... he knew it
could mean only one thing. He stepped closer to the counter and looked searchingly into Tai's
"Are you … all right...?" He asked, not finding any other words to express himself. "Has Matt hurt
you?" He felt rage growing inside him. From the few interactions he had with Tai, he was sure
the brunette did not want to be here in the angel-world. Just give me a hint that you didn't want
it... and I'll destroy him..., Raeson thought grimly, not daring to utter the phrase out loud for fear
of having someone else hear and hurt Tai.
Tai stared and turned away. He had forgotten about the marks on his neck and body in
general-the marks of Matt's possession. There..there were so many emotions in the older
angel's eyes that he couldn't face them knowing that Raeson would see through his lies. The
angel knew him better than anyone else in this world-Tai had let his defenses down and let
Raeson see everything within their first few meetings. "I..I'm fine. He was as gentle as he could
be." Which was the truth. Matt had been gentle with him and even prepared him.
"How..how have you been?" He asked instead, trying to keep the overwhelming emotions
down. Hearing about a day that didn't involve unwanted attention would make him feel better.
"Thank you for the necklace," he had said those words before and as he said them now, his
tongue felt heavy. It was because of jealous rage at seeing the necklace that Matt had taken
him. Tai didn't blame Raeson-not once would he blame him for that. As he spoke, long
fingers reached up to touch the necklace still around his neck. In all honesty he was surprised
that Matt hadn't ripped it from his neck that night.
Gentle as he could be… Tai said. So it hadn't been rape…? Did you want it? Raeson silently
questioned but did not dare to ask. After all, he wasn't sure if was ready to hear the answer.
If the brunette was becoming accustomed to Matt and beginning to accept him as a partner,
Raeson's hopes for having Tai to himself would fly straight out the window. Not to mention
that he didn't like someone else touching Tai now. It didn't taint the lovely human in his eyes –
but all the same, he would have preferred it if it was him who left those marks on Tai instead.
His heart leapt in happiness as he saw Tai touching the necklace – "You didn't tell him who
it was from?" He asked, certain that Matt would have thrown it away if he knew another alpha
gave it to his captive.
"He knew. I told him," the reply was quiet and nearly guilty. "I wasn't thinking when I told him
that..I don't want to get you in the middle of this. I..shouldn't have told him." Tai really hoped
that Raeson didn't put two and two together. He didn't want the angel to know that he had been
raped. It was shameful. It made him feel dirty and unwanted..and to think that he had given
himself up to Matt last night just for a chance to see Raeson's smile.
Slowly he brought his eyes up to look into concerned and silently raged filled eyes and took
a step back, remembering the rage in Matt's eyes before he caught himself. Tai's fingers
wrapped around the necklace and the memory of getting it made him calm his mind. He
couldn't lose this necklace-not when it meant so damn much to him. He would do what he had
to for Matt to let him work here and for him to keep the necklace.
"He knew?" Raeson asked, disbelieving Tai's words. Then he slowly started to understand...
he had given Tai the necklace two days ago. Before then, Tai hadn't yet been limping.
Afterwards... It didn't help when Tai backed away from him - what had Matt done to him to
make him so afraid...?
He didn't close the distance between them - Tai looked like a scared kitten as he stood on one
side of the room. He seemed to draw some strength from touching the necklace and that helped
calm Raeson as well. He would not do anything to frighten Tai now - but he was certainly
going to find Matt later to have a little discussion about how the other angel should be treating
his precious human captive.
Another thought crossed his mind and he voiced it immediately. "If he let you keep the
necklace... perhaps … he doesn't intend to keep you...?" He asked, hope filling his eyes.
If worst came to worst, he would fight Matt for Tai. But if he could the human without a
confrontation... that would lower the risk of Tai getting hurt in between them. "He might let you
"I can only hope," he answered honestly. "I..don't think so.." Tai was sure that Matt had no
intention of letting him go-not for a very long time and if he did let him go, he was sure that he
was going to be a wreck and never the same again. There was a serious thought in the back
of his head..what if someone heard him? What if someone told Matt about what he was saying
and the outcome was something terrible. The human closed his eyes again and took in a
shaking breath. Fear laced through his veins as he opened his eyes again.
He should be more careful of what he says.
Raeson still hadn't moved from where he was. Mixed with his rage was a deep sorrow for
the human. Matt's anger at his gift was what hurt Tai and for that he was eternally sorry for
him. Even he felt jealous at times and he was shamed to say that even at this point..he was a
little jealous of Matt. the marks on Tai's body should be from him and should have been from
pleasure that they both felt. Not from rape.
Never from rape.
"I … I can't promise I can heal everything he has done...," Raeson said haltingly. "But I can
try to help you get through the pain." He promised quietly. He still wasn't quite sure what had
happened between them - all he knew for sure was Tai had not been completely willing when
Matt had him. That filled his heart with hope for himself and his own future with the brunette as
much as it enraged him that Tai had to suffer so much pain.
I'll be seeing you later, Matt, Raeson promised himself - trying to keep a lid on his anger as best
as he could.
"I saw NMattn heading away from here towards his home today - he had a boy with him
yesterday. A blond he kidnapped from Najal. Is he here?" Raeson asked, changing the topic to
something that he could do something about right at that instance.
Tai smiled and took limping step towards the counter. Raeson never gave him a reason to be
afraid and he wasn't afraid of the angel. He was sure that fear was never an emotion he would
need around Raeson. "Thank you," voice soft and smile wide.
The light in his eyes faded just a bit as he brought up Rei. "He's here..but I'm not sure if he'll
want to see you. NMattn..did terrible things to him." Before his eyes he saw the blood and cum
staining the blond's thighs and shuddered at the thought. Still, he couldn't imagine himself in his
"I suppose there is not too much I can do to help - I do speak the Najalan language though,"
he added. "Perhaps he has a message that he wants sent to his family? I fly down to see my
mother often - she lives in a village near Najal. I could take deliver the message for him." He
said, eager to help. Having been raised with humans, he always hated when the Angels treated
them like dirt. In these situations, he found his wings were the best asset. Najal was far - it
would take a day's flight to reach their and another day to come back. But it would be worth the
"So how about you take me back to see him?" He asked Tai. "I know the wings will freak him
out but go in front of me and explain why I want to see him."
Tai stared at him for a full minute, searching his eyes and seeing nothing aside from an
eagerness to help the injured human. "Ok," agreeing he led Raeson into the back and asked
him to wait just outside the door.
"Rei...you won't want to see him, he's an angel, but he's not like the others. He would never
harm one of us and he was even raised with humans! Raeson just wants to help. He speaks
your language and said that he would fly down to your home and deliver a message to your
family. Let him help you..he is our only ally here." Tai took a breath, "I'm bringing him in now.
Please, just listen to him." He looked over his shoulder at Raeson and stood between the other
human and angel, not sure which he was really trying to protect more.
Raeson took one look at the human and knew what had happened to him. NMattn had a
reputation with being harsh on the humans and taking pleasure in their pain. The blond mut
have also fought to receive some of the bruises. He felt more than sorry fro the human and
relived that Tai hadn't gotten the same treatment. "Hello," he spoke in the boy's language.
"I'm here to help, my name is Raeson and I mean you no harm."
Rei was sure Tai was high on something strong when he said there was angel willing to help
them. "I don't know what you've been drinking but if you saw the way those... animals … treated
us...," Tai seemed to ignore his panic and soon enough, a large angel was entering the room.
Rei fought down the immediate urge to scream, but curled himself into a defensive position. He
clutched his abdomen with his arms - NMattn had kicked him in the vitals last night and he did
not want a repeat experience today.
Rei was truly surprised when the angel began to speak in his own language. "How... how
did you know...?" Then he remembered what Tai had said about the angel being raised
with humans. He straightened out a little more, wincing in pain from his bruises the night
before. "You don't look like the rest of the angels...," he noted absently. This one would
definitely stand out in a sea of blonds. In fact, other than his fair skin - he looked a lot like Tai.
Well... except for those golden wings.
"Can you take me home?" He asked, voice filled with hope. "The monster who took me isn't
here! Can you just take me home now?"
Raeson shook his head. "I'm sorry Rei - once NMattn finds out you are gone, he will go on a
rampage to find you. He'll hurt not just you but your family as well. And Sora and Tai for losing
you... The best I can do for now is to a message to your family if you have one."
Rei's face fell. But he was strong - he had held his family together after his father died and
he would get through this. "Tell them I'm safe & I'll come home as soon as I can," he said
determined. Then he was laying down onto his side, exhausted from the night before. "I'm going
to sleep now, Tai. Wake me when the animal comes for me."
Tai nodded and let Raeson lead him out of the room. The breath he had been holding
rushed out of his mouth in one loud breath as he walked behind the angel. His giant golden
brown sings caught his attention and he reached out to gently touch the feathers before quickly
retracting his hand before questing fingers could touch anything. For all he knew touching an
angel's feathers was like touching a normal man's penis. Or it could somehow hurt Raeson. Something he never wanted to do.
Tai was curious about the angel's wings and if he had ended up with Raeson, he might have
gone through with his want to touch them. That wasn't something he would do with Matt. The
act seemed too intimate. "Will you leave in the morning?" He asked as his eyes stayed on the
fathers, touching them with his gaze.
"In a day or two...," Raeson replied, following Tai's eyes to his wings. "I have some things I
need to take care of first." Like my friendly little chat with Matt..., he added in his mind but didn't
"You can touch them you know...," he said softly, watching Tai's fingers flexing near his
wings. "An angel's wings are special and it's a part of how an angel can cement his bond with
a loved one...," He added, keeping his brown eyes locked on Tai's. "A beloved's touch on an
angel's wings can calm the angel or arouse him... in fact... if an angel shares a soul bond with
another, the person can feel exactly how the angel is feeling by touching the angel's wings." He
smiled softly. "That's very rare though."
Tai's hand was itching to touch Raeson's wings even more now. he could just see his touch
cause the angel's eyes to go wide before they narrowed and he was scooped into strong arms
and his mouth ravaged. A deep blush settled on his cheeks as he lowered his eyes and tried to
not let his imagination get the best of him. The human's pants were already becoming too tight.
His lips parted just slightly as he let his fingers trail over the very tips of his gold wings. He
marveled at how soft the feathers were and yet how strong they seemed to be. Gently his
fingers moved up and down through the feathers, lost in the soft and addicting feel of them
against his skin. In his mind, Raeson was hovering how him as they shared soft kisses. His
wings were at first stretched out around him and then lowered, settling around Tai's quivering
form and keeping him safe from the world.
Having them touched during sex had to be a turn on like no other. What would an an aroused
angel be like in bed if his partner really wanted him? Tai blushed deeper. He hoped that one
day he would find that out. "How do you know you have a soul bond? It just..happens? One
day your partner touches your wings and then he tells you that he can feel what your feeling?"
Raeson took in a harsh grasp of air as he felt Tai's hands running over his wings. He was
having a very difficult time controlling himself and if the brunette didn't stop soon, he wouldn't
be responsible for his actions. All the same, he didn't want to push the brunette into something
right now. "I… I think that's enough Tai," he said, pulling slightly away from those fingers but
staying close enough that Tai could touch them again if he wanted to.
"A soul bond… well… it starts off slow enough. I've never experienced it so I can't be exact –
but here's the short version. A human has flashes of the angel's feelings at the beginning – as
the bond grows deeper, the person can feel more and more of what the angel feels. I've heard
stories that once a soul bond is deeply ingrained, an angel and their soul mate are always
connected in their feelings. Especially during sex," he blushed slightly, looking away. He was no
where near an inexperienced virgin – but Tai was somehow special to him. Are you my soulmate?
He wondered but didn't ask.
"There are some incredible gifts that come when an angel and their partner are bonded. It's
even been rumored that males can bear children if they pair with their soul-mates." He kept his
eyes steady on Tai, acutely aware that they were very close to doing something that could
spell trouble for them both.
Tai couldn't help the from that marred his pretty features once Raeson pulled away from his
fingers. He couldn't blame him though. If touching his feathers was as arousing as the human
believed, he was teasing the angel with his soft touches. Glee filled him, he couldn't lie, at the
thought. Still, he was Matt's and doing anything with Raeson would mean trouble for them both.
But..if he could get Matt to not want him, he could be happy with Raeson and then they could
see if they were soul mates. If he could have a soul bond with someone like Raeson he would
gladly stay in this world with the angel. Ra, he would even have his children is it were really
The human let his hand fall back down to his side and let his eyes travel up Raeson's body. the
man was taller than him and filled with more muscle than he would ever want, more muscle than
Matt. He was still lean though, his thighs corded and his arms thick-was that different from other
angels too? Tai wanted to spend an entire day tracing his tongue over every muscle on the
angel's body and then kiss each and every line on his skin. But he couldn't. He had Matt to go
"Then..this is very rare. Not many of these couples seem to find happiness here." His eyes
grew sad as he thought of Matt and what awaited him once he was back in the angel's house.
He couldn't imagine any couple being happy with how they came to be.
"Well... I wouldn't call what's going on here 'couples'. Alpha-angels are always taking humans
as their captives and then returning them once they are finished. The one good side is that
angels rarely kill their humans - it does happen on occasion by accident." He shook his head,
remembering the ugly wounds he had seen on another young human girl who had cheated on
her captor with a male human captive.
"Most of the time - when it comes to marriage and having children, angels will pair with other
angels. Humans are just temporary past-times. But you do have the couples like Sora-Arjun -
their relationship has been around a long time but from what I remember, they were not always
as happy as they are now. In fact, I think she was captured in similar circumstances to Rei."
He couldn't help but asking. "Tell me... did you feel anything when you touched my wings?" It
was too soon to expect something even if they did have a bond. But he hoped...
Tai paused, thinking. Had he felt something? No, not anything aside from the want to be
with the angel and his own arousal rising. Hes hook his head, too embarrassed to admit to his
growing problem. He bit into his bottom lip and sent a small prayer to Ra that he would have a
bond with Raeson. He felt that it would only make sense if he bonded with him. Yet, what if the
fates hated him and he ended up bonded to Matt?
'I doubt that could happen. Why would my soul bond with him? he brought me here and then
raped me in jealousy-my soul can't want that.' Tai walked them back to the front desk, in case
an angel came. After all, he did have a job to do.
Raeson was disappointed to hear that Tai hadn't felt anything when he touched his wing. It
would be too soon… he decided, thinking about the beautiful human. Still he had an intense
arousal to deal with. He silently followed Tai to the front office – checking that the coast was
clear, he quickly wrapped his arms around that slender waist and turned the brunette to face
"I know it's been hard for you… I know how angels can be… but do you think you could accept
me someday?" He asked, slowly running his hands up and down Tai's back, drifting lower
with each pass. He lowered his mouth to an inch of the brunette's, letting the human decide
whether he wanted to close the distance or not. He did not want any associations in Tai's
mind between himself and Matt. Raeson would show Tai that he knew how to respect his
Arms wrapped around his waist, but Tai wasn't alarmed. He was surprised that Raeson would
touch him out in the open of the office. Sure, no one was but anyone could walk in and there
would be problems with that. As he was turned to face the angel, he stared into brown eyes
and found himself smiling. Raeson was letting him control this. With Matt he had no control.
Tai wrapped both of his arms around the angel's neck, fingers of both hands stroking over
feathers, and pulled him into a soft kiss. He groaned and pressed closer, feeling the angel's
erection press against his hip and cause his own to fill with more hot blood. The human's body
pushed and rolled into the angel's. 'This is what it should feel like,' he thought as he kissed him
harder and moved one hand to wrap his fingers in Raeson's soft hair.
