#4 Chosen by the Vampire Kings: BBW Romance (5 page)

“I
thought that you said you wouldn’t leave me again.” Tanya knew she sounded like
a whining child, but she couldn’t help herself. Stephany was gone God only knew
where. Brant had left, putting himself in the line of fire and now Zane wanted
to leave her too. She was scared, confused, really upset and didn’t want to add
lonely to the list.

Zane
put a hand to the small of her back, pulling her against him. “You will be
safe. York and Griffin have been assigned to protect you. I need to check on
Lance and the rest of the wounded. I also want to check in with the hunting
party.”

“Brant,”
even saying his name brought fresh tears to her eyes.

“Yeah.”
He took a hold of her chin. “I told you it would work out, at least we won’t
have to fight to the death anymore.”

“It
could still happen.”

Zane
pursed his lips, causing her heart to skip several beats. “Charlotte will be
here soon. She can keep you company.” He chuckled when he caught the look on her
face. “Don’t tell me you’re still mad at her for offering to rut with me.”

“Why
the hell is that funny?” She found herself smiling which irritated her even
more because the thought of half-naked Charlotte made her want to hit
something. “She’s so freaking sexy and one of the biggest hussies alive.”

Zane
tensed, his eyes narrowed and his face took on a stern edge. “
You
are
sexy.” His eyes tracked the length of her body heating with every second. “With
hips made for holding. Legs designed to straddle a male’s hips.” He made a
strangled noise “Breasts that fill my hands, and I have big hands.” His eyes
darkened. “That makes them just right. Not too big. Just right.” He rumbled,
his voice heating her from the inside. “Your mouth is soft, your teeth blunt…”

“Wait
a minute…” She held up a hand. “You find my blunt teeth sexy?”

Zane
gave her a goofy grin. She would’ve bet cold hard cash a few days ago that
she’d never see the like grace his face. Her heart clenched at the thought that
she had put the smile there.

He
leaned in a little closer, “Your blunt teeth felt so good against my shaft when
you did that thing with your mouth.”

“It’s
called a blowjob and if you stay…” She put her hand on his crotch finding a
huge erection.

Zane
hissed and moved away from her touch. “Don’t tempt me female. I can’t. Your
mouth would not be enough, I would need more.” His eyes hooded. “Because the
best part of all is that your pussy is so tight.” He all out growled, so low
and deep that her insides did a flip flop. “I don’t know if it’s a human
thing.” He advanced on her, pushing her up against the wall, caging her in with
his big body. “It almost hurts to be inside of you.”

“I
hope it’s a good pain.” She goaded knowing the answer.

“The
best. The way your pussy walls clench around me when you come.” His eyes were
glowing, his erection hard against her tummy.

“Maybe
we could…” She licked her lips feeling more excited by the second. Her clothes
felt heavy and scratchy against her skin.

“No,
Ysnaar, as tempted as I am to bury myself in you…” He took a deep breath. “I
need to go and you need some rest.” Although he stared at her lips, he kissed
her forehead instead. “I won’t be long.” Coming from Zane, the gesture was so sweet.
It threatened to start up her crying all over again.

Charlotte
arrived two minutes after Zane left. Tanya watched her enter from her curled up
position on the bed. The vampire wore a long summer dress. It wasn’t a
particularly flattering cut or color, yet the vampire still looked ravishing.

“Hey.”
She smiled looking genuinely pleased to see Tanya. As she walked up to the bed
she stopped, wrinkled her nose and took a step back. “Yucky.”

“What
is it?”

“You
need a serious shower. I’m afraid that crusty old blood, sweat and semen do not
smell good together and in this case loads of semen.” Her nose twitched again.
“Oh my God, you’re in heat. On second thought let’s get some pillows under your
feet.” She walked over and tried to prop some of the throw pillows under Tanya’s
legs.

“What
the hell are you doing?”

“I’ve
heard that human women are ultra-fertile. Do you feel any different yet?” Her
face was lit up in sheer excitement. Charlotte adjusted the blanket around her
feet, tucking it in at the edges.

Part
of her wanted to slap the other woman’s hands away while the rest of her wanted
to feel some excitement right along with her. All she really felt was pressure
and just as in everything else, she felt torn. She wanted to give her vampire
kings heirs and to be a mommy, but she wasn’t sure that she was ready. At
twenty seven she was older than what she thought she would be when she had her
first child. She tried to stand.

“Don’t
you dare move. I’ll have some food and drink sent up. You rest.”

“I’m
perfectly fine.” She tried to sit up, but Charlotte gently pushed her back
down.

“You
are so lucky. My hips are too narrow for childbirth.”

Tanya
had to fight to keep her eyes from rolling.

“I
was sterilized when I became sexually active. Not the nicest procedure.”

She
felt sorry for the female. “Why couldn’t you have a c-section?”

Charlotte
laughed. “We heal too quickly and using a silver blade would kill the unborn
child. We have tried various methods but none have been successful. There are a
few that can bare young but even then, normally only one child. Sometimes, if
they are truly gifted then two children are born to a mated couple during their
fertile period. Considering only nine percent of all mated vampire couples
reproduce though, our population is in a steady decline.”

“That’s
nuts.”

“You
will be expected to bare many young.” Charlotte pulled a blond strand behind
her ear and grinned broadly like she had just told her all her wildest dreams
would come true.

“Excuse
me? Did I hear you correctly?”

Charlotte
nodded, her blond locks bounced with the rhythm. “Hopefully, one every two years
as long as you are fertile.” She beamed.

“No
freaking way.”

Charlotte
turned pale, her hand went to her throat. “Our species is on the decline. It
would be your duty as our queen. The previous queens failed us. Not you too.”
She grabbed Tanya’s hand and squeezed. “Please.”

“There
has to be another way. Why can’t some of your men mate with humans?”

Charlotte
giggled. “Our males are too strong. They are too ferocious in bed. They have
sexual appetites no human could match. You must’ve realized that by now.”

“What
are you trying to say? I am a human unless you didn’t notice.”

Charlotte
shrugged, suddenly finding non-existent pieces of lint on her dress. “I noticed,”
she mumbled.

“Are
you saying that I won’t be able to please Zane?”

“I’m
sorry, I shouldn’t have said anything. Me and my big mouth.” Her blue eyes
flashed up for a brief second before looking for more lint.

“No
way. Don’t you dare play that card. Out with it.”

“Rumor
has it that you are to mate both kings and from the scent of you...” She looked
up from under her long, thick lashes.

“Yes.
It’s true.” Tanya was fast losing patience.

Charlotte
finally lifted her eyes, they were filled with…pity. “You can’t possibly
satisfy them both. I doubt a human could satisfy even one of our vampire males.”

“Bullshit
I can’t. I’m supposed to get stronger or something once we’re mated.”

Charlotte
smiled and nodded. “Oh yes, I had forgotten about that. It only happens with
royalty so it is the major reason why humans don’t mix well with our males. You
may get stronger but not strong enough to handle two males. I’m sorry, Tanya.
Maybe if you chose one or two females to assist you. I would be willing—”

“No!”
She responded a little louder than she had intended. “I don’t need any help,
thanks for offering.”

“Sex
is a bodily function just as any other. Whether drinking, eating or breathing.
It would not mean that your males didn’t care for you.”

“Stop,
Charlotte. I will satisfy my males on my own.”

“If
you change your mind,” Charlotte lifted her eyebrows.

“I
won’t.” She thankfully sounded way more confident than what she felt. Her whole
body ached. What if it took days to recover? Would one or both kings seek out
one of the vampire females during that time? No freaking way. She wouldn’t
accept it and they both knew it. Her males had hands and could take care of
themselves.

“I
heard one of Brant’s coven was abducted.”

“Yes.
Stephany.”

Charlotte
gasped. “Oh my God, no wonder Lance almost died trying to rescue her.”

“You
know about the whole…situation?”

“Although
they managed to keep it a secret for many years, these days everybody knows
that they are mated. Lance is crazy about her.”

Tanya’s
heart sped up. “Strange way to show it. He’s been sleeping with anything in a
dress.”

Charlotte’s
eyes turned serious. “You must be mistaken. He might rut with quite a number of
our females, but he never sleeps with them.”

Tanya
had to giggle. “Sleeping is a human term for rutting.”

Charlotte
cocked her head to the side. “Strange word to use. I told you it’s a bodily
function like any other. A close friend of mine was highly compatible with
Lance. They used to rut often.”
Too much info
. She felt like telling
Charlotte to shut it. “He called out Stephany’s name once though, right at that
moment. Let me just tell you”—Charlotte paused—“this vampire friend of mine was
pissed. She’d kind of been hoping all along that she and Lance might hook up.
Informally of course since he is already mated to Stephany. Lance never rutted with
her again. He’s a rut only kind of guy and never sticks around for small talk.”

“Wow.”
She felt a little like a school girl talking behind her hand on the playground.

“Yup.
I think he wants Stephany even if he won’t admit it.”

“I
really hope Brant gets her back. I only hope that alpha doesn’t try anything
with her while he has her though.”

“Nah,
I wouldn’t worry about him forcing himself on her if that’s your worry. Wolves
and vampires have never been overly fond of one another. He might kill her
though.”

Tanya
gasped into her hand, feeling her eyes prick with tears. “They wouldn’t.” She
knew as she said the words that non humans were ruthless. “They must’ve taken
her for a reason. We’ll give them whatever they want for her safe return.”

“That
is not for you to decide. If their demands were to put you or our coven in
jeopardy…” She shook her head.

“I
don’t understand all of this.”

“We’re
in the middle of a war. There isn’t much to understand. Thankfully the covens
have joined forces, once again the vampire species will be a force to reckon
with and that’s all thanks to you.” Charlotte squeezed her hand. “I am here for
you human. I will help you in any way, whether to run your bath, give you a
massage…I have heard that a woman’s back can ache during pregnancy.”

“Hold
up. I may not be pregnant, in fact chances are good that I’m not.”

“You
humans are like breeding machines. I am sure you are with child.”

“Stop,
Charlotte. You’ll jinx me.” She found herself laughing despite her worries.

“Rubbish.
Vampires don’t believe in superstitions. It would be so amazing to have the
sound of a child’s laughter grace our court. Chubby cheeks and sweet innocence.
You will let me hold him?”

“Or
her.”

Charlotte
narrowed her eyes. “Or her. A pretty little girl with Zane’s dark eyes,” she
sighed.

“Or
Brant’s.”

“Oh
no…Zane will sire the first child. I would be willing to bet on it.”
Charlotte’s eyes had widened to the size of small plates.

“Again
with the bets. Let’s first wait to find out if I’m pregnant.”

“I’ll
bet that you are.”

“Stop
already. Let’s wait and see. How long before we know?” She flinched at the
desperate tone in her voice. All this excitement was catching. Hopefully it
wouldn’t be too long before she had an answer.

“Can
be as soon as twenty four hours, but certainly within the next three days.
You’ll get thirsty except nothing you drink will quench your thirst.”

Tanya
felt her stomach turn. “I forgot about that. I’ll want blood.”

Charlotte
laughed. “It’s not as bad as what you think, in fact, you’ll crave it and will
enjoy drinking from the kings. Don’t pull such an ugly face.” She laughed
again.

“I
just can’t imagine it.”

“It’s
great. The sex is phenomenal when both of you drink from each other as well.
Hopefully you will continue to crave blood after you have had the baby.”
