and inadvertently him. one hundred and ninety pounds. She could get them. most reporters didn’t. He had to admire her tactics. Around five feet five. curvy. He knew exactly how to distract her. the clerk refused to take it. that much was clear. No matter how many times Sorcha Morales tried to press money into the desk clerk’s hand. She wasn’t giving up. into a great deal of trouble. Of course. Sorcha tried to sweet talk her way into the information she wanted. . She hadn’t changed much in the two years since he’d seen her.Chapter One Diego watched her from the top of the stairs. Her black hair was cut short and her dark eyes flashed angrily. of course. with large breasts and full hips. She was very sure of herself. He sized her up with his cop eyes. she always had been. From his vantage point. Diego could see why she was angry. to try and get them to ignore a judge’s gag order and talk to her about their knowledge of Dustin Jaymes. When her bribery didn’t work. He remembered the woman was there to try and cause trouble for Eric and Angel. shaking her head and keeping her hands placed firmly over the ledger that showed which Dom was in which room at Tygers. When that failed. she swung back to angry. That meant she had to be stopped. a small smile lighting his face.
Making a mental note to tell Ty the clerk needed a raise, Diego leisurely walked down the stairs, focusing on Sorcha, hoping she would feel his gaze and look up. When he was almost to the bottom, it worked. She glanced his way, looked back at the clerk, then jerked her head back to Diego as understanding dawned. He’d topped her before. He could tell from the look in her eyes she remembered every moment of it. But she still wasn’t going to be distracted. She licked her lips as he walked closer and he could tell it was determination, and not lust, that caused the action. She was here to get a story, and if she couldn’t find the source she wanted, Diego would do. He’d been at Jaymes’s arrest, too. He was on the witness list. “I understand you’re down here causing trouble.” “Trouble? I’m not causing any trouble, Master Diego. I’m simply…” “Trying to bribe a clerk into telling you where to find a certain Dom and his sub. Sorry to disappoint you, but they’re a bit tied up at the moment.”
I know that because I’m the one who tied her up, giving her Dom a lesson.
“I’m not trying to bribe anyone, Sir.” “So I suppose that money is for your dues? You are a member, right?” “You know I am. Sir.” The last word was added in haste. “How else would I have made it this far?” He looked at the money and raised his eyebrows. “Are you now a member of the Tygers’ police force?” Heavy sarcasm fueled her voice. Diego shook his head. “Did you come down here to give me an interview? The people have a right to know what’s going on.” “And I have the right to follow a judge’s order to keep my mouth shut, as do Eric and Angel. You’ll just have to live with it.”
He swallowed a smile as he watched her work things out in her mind, trying to figure out a way to get him to talk. “Why don’t we go find someplace quiet? There are some private booths in the bar. I could ask questions, but you don’t have to answer. A nod or a shake of your head could tell me what I want to know. You could be an unnamed source. The judge would never know.” Diego shook his head. “Why don’t we just go upstairs, little subbie?” She pulled back from him as if he’d slapped her. “Because I don’t trade sex for stories.” He took a step closer. “Now, how am I supposed to think you could interpret nods and shakes when you get something so simple so very wrong? I never said anything about sex. I just said let’s go upstairs. The last time I topped you, we didn’t have sex, did we?” She had the good sense to look abashed. She smiled and moved toward him until they were millimeters apart. “Did they send you down here? Are you going to take me to Eric and Angel? Will the three of you talk to me? No one has to know. I can protect all of you as a source. I’d rather go to jail than reveal a source.” Diego stared at her, waiting for her to say something else. But she didn’t. She just looked at him with wide brown eyes and twirled her pen between her fingers. “How do I know we could trust you? You used to be a reporter for the Tribune. Now, you’re not. Where do you work?” Indecision crossed her face and he knew she was trying to decide whether or not to tell him the truth. Finally, she sighed. “I’m freelancing. This is a huge story, and I’ll be fair to you, I promise.” “Yes, it is huge.” He stared at her, waiting for her to make the next move. The fact that she didn’t jump at his invitation reminded Diego she was smart and didn’t go head first into things. He knew she’d been burned before, both personally and professionally, and that’s what caused her
reticence, despite the fact she wanted this story so bad she would bribe people to get information. After a few minutes of silence, she nodded. “You will take me upstairs to see them?” Diego calculated how long they’d been talking. He was sure Eric and Angel had already slipped out Ty’s private entrance, so he could probably let her go upstairs and find nothing but an empty room. Still, Sorcha had always intrigued him. A trip upstairs could prove fun, and very interesting. “Sure, I’ll take you upstairs.” “To talk with you, Eric, and Angel, right?” “I can’t promise you that. But I do know where they’re at.” They either moved to a new
room to continue playing, or they’re out the back door, probably roaring down the road on Eric’s Harley.
“Take me upstairs.” Diego nodded and turned to the desk clerk. “Subbie Sorcha and I will take room seven, if it’s available.” “It is, Master Diego.” She blinked her eyes twice and nodded when he mouthed the words, “They gone?” at her. He turned to Sorcha and held out his hands toward the stairs. “After you.” Indecision crossed her face, and then she nodded.
Yes, Diego thought, this could prove to be very interesting.
At the door to room seven, Sorcha paused. This could turn out to be one of the smartest things she’d ever done, or the dumbest. She knew Diego Fuentes’s reputation. Her former
She walked through the curtain. are they?” “They were.Sweet Silence 5 Master had given her to him one night for a bondage session.” “Did he really threaten to kill you?” “No comment. and very.” “There were no conditions. hoping to find Eric and Angel. very dominant.” . A short one. “Tell me about the day Eric arrested Dustin Jaymes. I just asked if you wanted to come upstairs. keeping her purse close to her instead of placing it on the table in the antechamber. I should tell Ty. She hit the record button and held it toward Diego. He was a no-nonsense Dom who never let a situation spiral out of control. and you said yes. Always. and I never mentioned anything about a scene. true.” “Go right ahead. but still a bondage session. The room was empty.” “You lured me up here under false pretenses. Trying to bribe someone is against the rules too. They might still be. He’d been gentle and kind. “I can protect you as a source. She walked inside. He reached around her and pushed open the door. He was always on top of things. That’s against club rules. “They’re not here.” She flipped the recorder off in anger.” She reached into her purse and took out a tape recorder.” “With the condition I talk with the three of you. which disappointed but didn’t surprise her.” “No comment.” “Is your hair green?” “No comment. But they’re not going to talk to you.
trailing his fingers over ropes and handcuffs.” “I don’t plan on giving you a story. She had lusted after Diego. and threaded it down through her pussy. with broad shoulders and a massive chest. and I wasn’t proposing sex. She swallowed hard. maybe two hundred pounds. She guessed him to be around five feet ten. He moved to another wall and attached them to rings.” Her breasts rose and fell rapidly as he selected two pairs of handcuffs from the wall. he hadn’t wanted her to lust after the Dom who was doing it. “Since we’re here. so there shouldn’t be a problem.” She shook her head violently. Memories of her experience with Diego flooded through her mind. “I told you. and truthfully. His dark hair was cut short and there were little flecks of green in his deep brown eyes. and it had made him angry. “You don’t believe me?” “What I believe is a judge told me to keep my mouth shut. Sorcha imagined herself stretched between the rings as Diego wrapped rope around her breasts. Would you like that. She forced the memory of Thomas out of her mind. I don’t trade sex for a story. He’d told her that. although he’d wanted to see her bound. but it had fueled her fantasies for some time after that. Thomas had known. He wasn’t handsome in the classical sense. You can’t. and it had been good. still did.” He walked toward the wall of bondage equipment. subbie Sorcha? As I recall. I could give you a great orgasm. She hated to think that two years later she could still remember the smell of his aftershave as he’d leaned over her and bound her hands.6 Melinda Barron His smile made her knees go weak. wrapped the ropes around her breasts. However. you liked the one I gave you the last time I topped you. It had been the only real sexual contact they’d had that night. But she had been Thomas’s sub. He can put me in jail. He’d . why don’t we play? Just a little bit. around her waist. and tugged on her nipples. For a while.
“Well?” “What?” “You didn’t answer my question. she’d found Diego. how his pierced cock felt sliding in and out of her body. Sorcha.” .Sweet Silence 7 been from Pittsburgh. and she could admit now that she’d wanted to have sex with him. Lisa. She’d been nice and tried calling. “What?” “Is it really pierced?” His eyebrows arched with mischief. hoping they would be relaxed and more in the mood to talk. He’d been her last Dom. so she’d resorted to coming here. and other places. and his job had taken him back. and knock on doors until she found Eric and Angel. but Thomas had refused. another subbie. focus! You’re not here for this. I’d like to see it sliding into my mouth. just maybe she could sneak out. Would you like to see my cock?” Oh. had told her about sex with Diego. but they wouldn’t return calls or take hers. “Yes. that’s not why --” “Come over here.” “Would you like to see it?” Focus. and he cocked his head at her. Submit to me tonight. Just pleasure. and that had been two years ago. lock him in the room. Instead. No pain. Maybe. She looked down. but. They’d both agreed that it would be best if she stayed in Albuquerque. “Is what pierced?” “Your cock. right before her fall from grace. She’d been excited at her first meeting with the famous Diego. where she knew they played. fuck yes. how explosive and intense it was.
like she was trying to trade sex for his cooperation. She had to get away from him. She walked toward him and caressed his hand. his hand still wrapped around the ring from which the handcuff hung. I’m going to have to punish you. “You shouldn’t have done that. and laughed deeply. I think you and I might --” She clicked the manacle over his wrist and locked it into place. but she really had no choice. but she hadn’t fallen that far. No Dom in Tygers was into forcing a sub into submitting.” . But. “This story is too important to me.” She backed away from him. The sound echoed in the quiet room. “I just need the time to search for them. She knew it would end up badly for her. and if she submitted to him tonight it would feel too much like compromising her journalistic morals. give herself time to search for her sources. She knew that if she just left. She wanted to build on their first experience together. he would let her. I’m sorry. that wasn’t why she’d come here.8 Melinda Barron Sorcha was tempted. She bit her lip as an idea formed. oh so tempted. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. She might have fallen in her career.” She shook her head and moved to the door. and she could use the release.” His voice was steely.” “Unlock me. But. “Good girl. “The key’s over on the wall. He turned his back to her. He turned toward her. And he was going to be so pissed at her. she wouldn’t have time to search for Eric and Angel. but he wasn’t happy. and you’re not going to talk. Tell me where I can find the other two. He pulled against the chain. that was for sure. He was smiling. You’ve gone from being a good girl to a bad girl.
unless he’d given her his permission. She heard Diego yell again and turned toward the inner part of the club. “Don’t leave me here like this. She was sure he had a cell phone in his pocket and was probably dialing it right now. The idea that had seemed so smart seconds ago now seemed so stupid. Ty called out her name again. a frown on his face. and probably spank her until she couldn’t sit for a week. She would have little time. His deep.” She clutched her purse and took off for the stairs at a dead run. and you’ll pay. or of what would happen when he was loose? Oh lord. Not only wasn’t she getting an interview. but now Diego Fuentes was going to hunt her down. my God…I just chained Diego Fuentes to a wall. I will find you. wondering which door to try. but she kept running. “fuck!” and the rattle of the handcuffs sounded ominous as she stood in the antechamber and tried to catch her breath. she knew. .” She hurried through the curtain as he yelled her name again. with more force. true. but she always loved it when she did. Oh. But she was pretty sure that handcuffing a Dom to the wall was breaking the rules.Sweet Silence 9 “Sorcha. “Sorcha?” “Crap. Would she be banned for this? She hadn’t played in a while. So much for her brilliant plan. what had she done? Sorcha hurried into the hall. Why hadn’t she thought of a cell phone. Master Ty was coming toward her. I promise.” The anger in his voice was clear.
“La pequeña tramposa. He bared his teeth in a growl. Outwitted by a subbie.” After Ty released the lock. let her think you won’t show up. Now. Just unlock me. then lowered his head to his hands.” Diego nodded. “The key. Go to her tomorrow. his shoulders shaking with laughter. .10 Melinda Barron Chapter Two “Could you be any slower?” Diego leaned his head against the wall.” “Fine. “This what you want.” He walked to the wall and picked up the key.” “What?” Ty shook his head. but I think you should make her stew overnight. subbie?” Ty’s voice was deep and his shoulders shook with laughter. holding it out and dangling it. “Fuck you. the other part wanted to laugh. “I don’t know.” Diego rattled the cuffs and turned toward Ty.” “Not a bad idea. Part of him wanted to scream. see if I care. lull her suspicions. That’s the only way anyone’s going to believe this. I’m considering calling my sweet little Chess up here with a camera. “Where does she live?” “I’ll get it for you. Diego rubbed his wrist. Ruin my fun.
too. she gave me a good laugh. They’re sending out letters to everyone so they know that. I don’t think it’s going to scare her.” Ty nodded and clapped Diego on the shoulder.” Diego looked at his friend. It had been a long day and the last thing she needed was to find Diego Fuentes sitting on her doorstep. or he was just going to forget the incident. that she has a black mark on her record here. She got me talking about my cock and turned the tables on me. Tell her. and I would never use a sub as a filler.” “Will do. though. You going to bring her back here tomorrow? Do I need to set up something special?” “No. “You don’t want to hear my woes. though.” “We tried to keep it quiet. one that can switch. unless you want to punish her.Sweet Silence 11 “She’s a little cheat. or worse yet. “Yeah. And I could sure use it. which was .” “Well. or just in Chess?” Ty snorted. He was either letting her tension build. and the other partners will be informed.” “Are you drowning your sorrows in subbies. “Chess keeps me happy. a belt in hand.” ***** Sorcha approached her apartment door cautiously. But I’ll need a woman before long. He loves it. I didn’t even know you and Alexis were having troubles. The partners had to know she was selling me her share. but somehow. I’ll get you that address. Nothing’s going to change. I heard. cheated me out of my fun tonight.” “I’ll leave it to you. She’d been very surprised when he hadn’t shown up last night. though. which it had. until she decided to leave town. with handcuffs. I’m sorry. because I love to watch my female subbie top Chess.
it would be a cold shower. With any luck. “Wanna use my cell phone? I got the number programmed in already. but no thanks. Under a rock in an apartment complex? First place a burglar would look.” “What good would that do? They protect their own. He’d told her thanks. kicked off her shoes. The morning interview had gone well. She exited the kitchen and crossed the entryway into the living room and let out a surprised scream. Once inside.” “And it was the first place you looked. I had a key. “Out. she turned immediately to the right and the small kitchen. “Get out!” She pointed toward the front door. It wasn’t reporting. thumbing through a magazine. She threw them on the counter and put up the food. When she’d recovered enough she took a few steps closer to him. But when she’d come back for the follow up after lunch. A respectable job at a small magazine. If so. but checking facts was just fine with her. Even when he breaks into a woman’s apartment. “You should find a better hiding place for your spare. he’d wait until he saw her at Tygers again. which wouldn’t happen for a long while. Maybe a hot bath would feel better. Diego Fuentes sat on the couch. She stuffed her mail into the bag of groceries she carried and inserted her key into the lock. Bills and more bills. huh?” . and fished the mail out of the bag. before she’d even put her butt back in the chair that had felt so comfortable that morning.12 Melinda Barron doubtful. for now. or I’ll call the cops!” “Go ahead. If they hadn’t shut off the gas.” He looked up at her and grinned.” “I didn’t break in. she knew the news editor had put her name together with the scandal of two years ago.” He dangled the silver instrument from his fingers. her hands flying to her chest as she came to a dead stop. She deposited her bag. She’d thought she’d had a job today.
Have a good one. I go for everything. like I said.” There was no conviction in her words. and I’m starved. too. “What now?” “Pizza.” “Thanks. She couldn’t remember the last time she’d had enough extra cash to treat herself to a pizza delivery. man. Diego came in and lifted the lid on the box.” She crossed her arms over her chest. There’s nothing in the fridge. you can spank me and leave. Keep the change. “I’ve been waiting a while. From where she stood. their voices carrying into the living room of the small apartment. “You ordered pizza?” Sorcha stared after him as he walked toward the door. And I got some wings.Sweet Silence 13 “Yup. her anger rising. it seemed the man wasn’t made of flesh and blood. don’t be like that. my good man. I’m starved.” “There you go.” Diego stood and moved toward the door. I think I’m being more than generous. but of pure audacity. “Take it and leave. but she shook her head. “I got supreme. The heavenly aroma filled the room and Sorcha stared straight ahead.” She listened as he opened the door and greeted the deliveryman.” “I was bad. “Now. And I ordered two. How’s that?” . “That’ll be thirty-two bucks. Her stomach rumbled.” “Same to you. but you can pick off what you don’t want. Me. ’cause.” The doorbell rang and she shook her head. ’cause I didn’t know what you liked. The hot ones. Be happy I didn’t tackle you and chain you to the table or something. right?” He’d moved to stand beside her and she lifted her gaze to his. You do like hot stuff.
Isn’t that what reporters say. “You have any paper plates? I hate doing dishes. And you can tell me all about yourself and your fall from grace. and I’ll listen. whistling as he opened the wings package and took out the small jars of dipping sauce. there’s two sides to every story? Tell me yours.” He crossed into the kitchen and she heard the pizza boxes hit the counter with a soft thump.” “Listen. She watched him eat. Stubborn and full of himself.” . He sat down on the couch and looked at her pointedly. since I’m sure you went through everything before I got here. but I’m the Master of it. as if he expected to be in charge. She couldn’t stand it anymore. but you don’t want to rile me up too much. “Come and eat.” He loaded pizza onto his own plate. and took one of the containers of dressing. After that. I know…” She closed her mouth when he held up his hand. you’d know that I don’t. With Diego. and it was the smell of the pizza that brought about her downfall. “This may be your house. He set them on the coffee table. “Well. She took a plate and put a few slices of her own on it. Whatever happened to you in the past led to last night. She wouldn’t call him patient. She groaned. Plates are to the right of the sink. it just seemed natural. and you. lifting one up to take a bite. I’m patient.” He came back into the living room. “Delicious. right now. and tell me the tale from the beginning.” “Not your side. the plates piled on top of one of the boxes. we’ll talk about your punishment for last night. surrounded it with wings. Of everything.14 Melinda Barron He closed the lid on the top box. I want you to eat.” “Why? You obviously know the story. “I’m waiting. maybe. I want the story in order.” Sorcha shook her head. In another man his attitude might seem arrogant. He opened the pizza box.
as was their policy. The paper agreed to do the story. ’cause I can’t find a decent one anywhere else. I ran with it. She said her son told her his teacher was molesting him. We would have a big . Do you think he could get me a job at the PD. I contacted the teacher and the school.” She watched him finish a third slice and reach for another. “Of course the next morning.” “And?” “And. until an investigation could be done. although the school put him on suspension. I wanted a biggie on my hands. I thought for sure the man would be arrested. It was the first the school had heard about it. it seemed that everyone but me was willing to wait for the investigation. Just great. she sat down across from him and set her plate down. We’d been friends for a long time.” “Great. rubbing her hands together to dislodge crumbs. but wanted to withhold the guy’s name until he was arrested. and it ran that way.” “That’s nice to know.” he said around a bite of food. Everyone denied it.” Diego whistled low. Turns out she and the teacher had been having an affair and he’d dumped her. her standing and him sitting.Sweet Silence 15 They ate for a few minutes in silence. he did say he thought you got a rotten deal. but he’ll talk about me. it seems. so I put the guy’s name in. or so I thought. “You read the story about my firing?” “Eric told me. and we would be the first news organization to name him. Finally. “I’m waiting. I convinced the copy editor to let me see the story.” “In your defense. He won’t talk to me. the shit hit the fan. This was her way to get back at him. “Two years ago a friend of mine came to me with a big story. When the news editor had left for the night. “And you’re surprised you got fired?” “I was sure she was telling me the truth. maybe filing or something.
He came back and handed her a bottle of soda. You. She heard it close again. Stay away from the story until the trial starts. the school announced that the whole thing was bogus. he opened his own and took a deep drink.” He popped the wing into his mouth. and began to chew.” “This time the stakes are higher. Last time you lost your job. When he was seated again.” Diego placed his empty plate on the couch next to him and stretched his feet out under the coffee table. And getting my information right from the source.16 Melinda Barron scoop and I would get promoted. true. Instead. shaking her head at him.” “Yes. “He threatened to kill you. She heard him open the fridge. trying to focus on anything but his words. and write it up. Prove you can do things right. She set her plate inside the now empty box and stood. but he’d never touched the kid. I had my eye on the prize. Sorry. Eric. pulled the bone out while pulling off the meat. This time you could lose your life. and Angel.” “So you ran with the story before checking all the facts.” Diego got up and went to the kitchen. which she knew was almost bare. but this time I’ll be certain of my facts. She watched his lips.” He picked up a chicken wing.” “We’re not going to talk to you about it. and not on the ball. And I was naïve enough to believe her. Cover it. “Yes. They fired him for having an affair. “You still have your eye on the prize. Didn’t that piss you off?” . only this one’s much bigger. her hands on her hips. “She used you. I want to be the first.” “No! Everyone will be doing it at that time.
“Are you going to spank me?” “Not tonight. He laughed. He was there. and it sent chills up her spine. Finally. too. She returned his gaze. But other than that it will just be Master and sub. Her clit twitched in anticipation. or Eric. You and me. his silence keeping them on edge.” His voice was soft. “What. I’ll keep digging without you. Thanks for the pizza. and a lot of bondage. “You think it’s going to be that easy? You left me chained to a wall last night. then?” “Three nights. No way. increasing the intensity of the scene they were in. but she shook her head. “Tempting. his eyes assessing.” “There won’t be any pain.” The room grew silent and her palms began to sweat. chain me to the wall for everyone to see?” He lifted his brows at her in consideration. Please leave. Well. To put herself in his hands for three days? That idea was just too frightening.Sweet Silence 17 “How do you know it was me? It could have been Angel. “Is there an alternative?” . She’d heard that about him. that he’d get into staring matches with subs. I have a very nice dungeon there. she couldn’t stand it anymore. but no. at my cabin in Chama.” “Fine.” Her mouth dropped open and she shook her head. Or even Ward McGovern. You can’t do that and not be punished for it. You’ll even get to feel my pierced dick in your sweet little cunt.” Sorcha felt her pussy contract. waiting for him to speak. “No.” “Then what? Are you going to kidnap me and take me to Tygers. yet full of mirth. except for the initial whipping I give you for chaining me up.” He stared at her.
before she changed her mind. Did one of your subbie friends tell you how it felt sliding in and out of her?” “Yes. “I don’t think…” “We can leave Santa Fe around six.” She turned toward him and smiled. not a kidnapper and rapist. The minute you get to my house. her heart beating rapidly and her nipples pressing against her bra. You can park your car at my house. but Ty likes his cane. or do you need to meet me at Tygers Friday night?” “I’ll go for the weekend. We can sign a contract and leave it with Ty.” She whispered the word and looked across the room.” The disgust in his voice made her regret her words. “Of course you are. Agreed?” She swallowed hard. Last night.” “I’m a Dom.” “I’m not worried about that. from Ty and me at the same time. And I have a four-day weekend. I’ll give you the address. her gaze drifting to his crotch. “I’m just a little out of practice. “You know you’re tempted. It’s just…” “Be at my house at five. starting Friday. though. kinda alternating swats.” She nodded and sat back down.” He hissed at the idea. “He’s not very happy with you. anywhere but at him.” “I give good instructions. don’t be. “I can’t believe you’re giving me a say in this. We can leave it with anyone you like.” “This weekend?” She stared at him. I like a belt. her stomach dropping to the floor. It’ll be fine there. I know you wanted to see my pierced dick. . You’re mine for that weekend. the contract starts. “If you’re worried about me hurting you.” She said the words quickly. Do we have a deal.18 Melinda Barron “A public spanking at Tygers. They tingled with anticipation. by the way.

The one time Diego had tied her had been exhilarating. “Don’t be late. He stayed there for a few minutes. and she sank back into the chair. and handed it to her. It was printed with his name. He put his finger under her chin and lifted her gaze to his. He reached for his wallet.” She shook her head and fought back a laugh.
Well?” Sorcha glanced around and furrowed her brow. Ruben? I just wanted to hire you for a small job.” “Right. Now.” “Time is money. what do you want. I don’t talk about illegal jobs over the phone. Too many chances of being bugged and recorded. “Why all the cloak and dagger stuff. “Don’t leave.” Ruben walked away from her and she called his name.20 Melinda Barron Chapter Three “I always loved the zoo. “I have money for you. In my purse. Sorcha. and do you have my money for it?” “You’re nothing if not to the point.” She turned to her high school friend.” “Have a nice day. “I want you to break into the state police computers and find an address for me.” She ran up to him.” . “What makes you think I’m not wearing a recording device right now?” “I’m an electronics expert. Sorcha.” Sorcha focused on the tigers and shook her head. remember? I have a nice little device in my pocket that will wipe out recordings within range.

And I’m not afraid of anything. “I’m only going to do this for so little money because we were friends in high school. The best? If you do your work right.” She stared at him as he shook his head. “I’m outta here.” He snorted and Sorcha gave herself a mental pat on the back. you are. “What?” She was breathing heavily. you won’t get caught. much less the state police. This is important to me. His name is Joseph Black Hawk. “I want more money.” “Fine. You have no idea how important. Or are you afraid of tackling the really big jobs?” “I am the best.” He stood with his back to her for what seemed like forever. and yet Sorcha still said.” “Please.” “I can get you five hundred more.Sweet Silence 21 “How much?” He turned to her. “Five hundred?” She chewed on the inside of her lip and grimaced when he laughed. Finally.” ***** “What size shoe do you wear?” Diego’s voice came through loud and clear over the phone line. What is it you want?” “The address of someone the state is hiding until the trial. When can you get it to me?” “Early next week. Ruben. after I get the information. I want that other five hundred. “Are you kidding me? I wouldn’t hack into the grocery store computer for that.
When did I give him my telephone number? He repeated his request and she cleared her throat. but --” “It’s not going to be pants. “Good-bye to you. depending on the pants. in case they decided to talk. But why was he asking about clothing? On “play days. wondering what this weekend would bring. Surely. Usually. yes. “Um. yes. Diego would be the same way. She sat up and picked up the package she’d bought that afternoon. She wanted to be bound.” He hung up and Sorcha stared at the phone.” she said with a sigh. hoping it was one of the sources she’d called that afternoon. sweets.22 Melinda Barron before the caller hung up. and she wanted it to be with Diego. “Nine. Diego. Don’t be late tomorrow. She plopped down on the couch. It would take her just about an hour to get to Diego’s house in Santa Fe.” Sorcha said softly. She would set up the phone tonight and call tomorrow morning to give out the number. depending . A prepaid cell phone. Why are you --” “Bra? Forty D?” “Double D.” “Width?” “Medium. But his questions made her wonder. She couldn’t afford a regular one. Would I be right?” “It depends. but she wanted the people she’d contacted that afternoon to have a way to reach her this weekend.” Thomas had made her stay naked. “I have --” “Lower body a size sixteen?” “Sometimes eighteen.” She cleared her throat again. too. I --” “Shirt size? I’m thinking a one-X.
She would have to take that out to give to Ruben when the job was over. and that would lead her back to the land of the living journalists. Going to Ruben was risky. that Ruben would be able to hack into a police computer. leaving her only five hundred. It was a small adobe structure. These were law-abiding citizens who wouldn’t risk going to jail. she could get him to tell her what he knew. but since no one would talk to her. Sorcha pulled into the driveway next to his truck and put her car into park. Like any good reporter. Once she’d come to that realization. Maybe. just to make sure she was on time. and that they’d talk to her? She was trying to get her information the wrong way. If not. But if it worked. For the thousandth time since Monday. just maybe. she had one other option that was more chancy. it might put her back on the path to a good story. She was sure they would talk to her. but would still get her desired results. but hopefully it would work. and she would keep their location a secret. She didn’t want to add being late to her list of sins. Sorcha had decided on Plan B. . she was willing to go to jail before revealing a source. Her friend had a respectable job at a computer firm and did his hacking on the side. she had no choice. She knew that Joseph and his family were in hiding because Jaymes had threatened their lives. with lots of trees and a flowerbed that in warmer months would have lots of blooms. really. Tracking down Joseph Black Hawk was dangerous. and it was a long shot. she wondered what had possessed her to fasten a handcuff around Diego’s wrist. She hated giving out the last of her money. and that would lead to nailing Jaymes to the wall. and that would include keeping Joseph’s location secret. She just hoped he was as good as she’d heard. Sorcha had gone to the bank that morning and taken five hundred dollars from her savings account.Sweet Silence 23 on the traffic. Had she really thought that she’d find Eric and Angel. Best if she left around three-thirty. ***** Diego’s house wasn’t what she expected.
she opened the back door and picked up the bag she’d packed. “Ven adentro. She was sure that Master Ty wouldn’t.” Her stomach turned over. you’re my little toy for the weekend. It had been a long time since she’d submitted. in case he decided to spend time in town. Now. I want you naked.” After setting down her case and purse. Obviously. She’d worn a skirt. If word got around Tygers that it had happened. And I’m your Lord and Master. He looked dark and dangerously sexy. Once outside the car. You will refer to me as my liege. she was very. She smiled to herself as she remembered the scene of Diego chained to the wall. She stepped inside and found him sitting on the couch. so she didn’t plan on mentioning it to anyone.24 Melinda Barron She was more than a little nervous about this weekend. . Unless he had clothing for her to wear. peering inside the open door at the living room and waited. either. despite her apprehension. he didn’t want to see her in anything. and. mi pequeña juguete. thinking he would like her in feminine clothing. very excited about the idea. he’d be doubly mad.” His voice rang out and she shook her head. And though she might chuckle about it. but she had to face the consequences of her actions. since he’d made the comment last night about her not wearing pants. “Very good. her fingers went to the buttons of her blouse. She knocked on the screen door. an idea that made her stomach churn more. She wasn’t sure what she would need. my liege. but she’d brought a few changes of clothing. she knew that he wouldn’t.” “Yes. “Your toy?” “That’s right. clad in jeans and boots and dark T-shirt. Say it. which was doubtful. Bet that was a first.
When he finally spoke again. “Now your panties. stop until I tell you to start again. When he nodded his approval. She kicked off her flats and looked at him when he sighed. your bra. and from the look on Diego’s face right now. as if taking in every inch of them. my liege. I like to watch. A look of hunger appeared in his eyes. pushing her breasts out further. Or do you keep your pussy nice and bald?” . She undid the hooks and let the garment fall. Thomas had taught her not to be. She stood still. “Did I say you could take your shoes off?” “No. I’m very visual. my liege.” “Yes. You’re a good girl. His gaze roamed over her breasts.” She pushed them down gently. but she didn’t. enjoying his perusal.” She shrugged out of the blouse and threw it toward a chair. After you drop each piece of clothing. toward his crotch to see if other parts of his body were reacting the same way. she smiled. “Skirt next.” “Put them back on. Slowly. She kept her gaze focused on his face.Sweet Silence 25 “Slowly.” Her fingers went under the elastic waistband of the calf-length skirt. making her pussy clench and her nipples tighten further. “Very nice. She wanted to look down.” She stuffed her feet back into the shoes and looked at him. He again gave her a look of approval. knowing that you needed to shave last night. “Very nice. stepping out and spreading her legs slightly to give him a better view. She’d never been ashamed of her body. his voice was husky with desire.” She put her hands behind her back to grasp the clasp. Now. she didn’t need to be. pushing it down so she could step out. her nerves jumping up one more notch.
If something bothers you. so behave.26 Melinda Barron “I keep it that way.” “It’s just been so long. my liege. . I’m visual. She was surprised at the length of it. “You will remain silent until I say so. You belong to me this weekend and will obey me in all things.” She lowered her head to it and did as he told her. Most leashes she’d seen for BDSM play were shorter. You will speak when you are spoken to. He pulled a leash from his pocket and attached it to the ring.” He continued her perusal. It heightens the scene. arouses the senses. We’ll choose one when we get to the cabin. “Stand still. and I like to take things slowly. understand?” She nodded and he wrapped the leash around his fingers.” “Yes. a large D-ring in the front.” “Good. Do you understand?” “Yes. you will raise your hand. to keep the sub close to their Dom/Domme.” “Good.” “Yes.” She smiled as he stood and walked into the other room. my liege. really.” “As I said. It’s a form of bondage. or make a comment. you use your safe word. Let me go over my rules with you. a collar stretched between his hands. If you wish to ask a question. my liege. And I love bondage. I expect you to stand still during that time. When she lifted her head he placed the collar around her neck and fastened it. “Kiss it. And you will wait to speak until I give you permission. but your time to submit is here now. Plus. He was back seconds later. his gaze roaming over her body until Sorcha began to fidget. I like silence.
” She wobbled on the heels and put her hands on the table to steady herself. All in leather. “You may not speak. crap. she lifted her gaze to his.” He led her down the hall. She put her hand in the air and Diego shook his head. Put them on. It was a stocked dungeon. The table was metal. Her eyes widened when she picked up the first boot.Sweet Silence 27 “You may take your shoes off now. her leash pulling against its hook as she moved. His laugh was soft. So much for the excuse they don’t fit. It was long. or if we go somewhere else. then flickered back to a table that held articles of clothing. “Boots. Her gaze passed by. Now the skirt. and not meant to embarrass her. with tables and chairs for bondage and equipment hanging from the walls. Her gaze wandered the room. she could tell. unless you’re naked for a bondage session. Once inside her eyes widened. but had a zipper on the inside to make them easy to get into and out of. He led her to the table and attached her leash to a hook that was on the edge. When she had the second boot on. and a top. It fit like a glove.” he said softly. the leather cold on her legs. She zipped it up. stopping to open the second door on the right.” She unzipped it and pushed her foot into the shoe portion. Your outfit for the weekend. The shiny leather boots laced up the sides. “Follow me. The five-inch heels made Sorcha’s mind reel. a skirt. trying to take it all in. “Presents.” When she’d done so he nodded. He does have things for me to wear. and very cold against her backside. Stand up and let me see. and would probably hit her mid thigh.” She sat down. You look very sexy. Oh. “Very good. “You’ll be used to them by Monday. Sit on the edge of the table and put the boots on.” .
The top gave almost no cover to her chest. She took a deep breath to fasten the two halves together but once it reached her breasts. his thumb tracing her lip. and split up the front. ‘Please punish me for being a bad girl. with the neck part snapping in the back. Who would have thought this would have happened? I’m a leather-clad bondage woman for Diego Fuentes. wanted him to take her before they left for the cabin.28 Melinda Barron She picked it up and examined it. One little move and they might plop out for the entire world to see. she wrapped it around her body. Diego stood back and watched her as she examined it. and make her wait. ‘I need a spanking. “Now the top. She could see his cock straining against his jeans.’” . “Delicioso y muy caliente. “Say.’” “I need a spanking. At his order.” She nodded her thanks. Her nipples hovered at the edge of the material. my liege. praying that she didn’t fall off the heels as she moved. his perusal making her nervous. He caressed her cheek. He stepped back to look her over and she took advantage of the moment to study his crotch. hooking the zipper in the front and pulling it up. but nodded. but she knew it wouldn’t be that easy. and it pushed her breasts together. A hard one.” It was a halter top. It was tight.” The words made her stomach roil. it would go no further. He kissed her forehead and she closed her eyes. “Repeat after me. Muy. She lifted the two parts of the halter top behind her neck and snapped them together. don’t you think?” She bit her lip. someone needs a spanking. she stood again. She wanted to see it now. which gaped in the middle. giving him easy access if he wanted it. my liege. Finally. giving her room to close the zipper. She hadn’t been called hot in years. He wanted to excite her now. The split was right over her pussy. “Now. It was short. She stepped into it and zipped it up. muy caliente. my liege. She slipped her hands down the front to shift her breasts.
” She hated the belt. for a good old-fashioned spanking. “Did you hold up your hand? Did I give you permission to speak?” He pulled the belt from its loops and doubled it over in his hands. you have to know that. “No. my liege.” “You’re right. “I didn’t mean to embarrass you. “Um. I didn…” She stopped speaking when he held up a hand. the sensations making her tremble. and not for fun. Yes. Nice and stimulating. running his fingers over several floggers that hung from their hooks. I think not. the sound making her flinch. “No. an evil glint in his eyes. to remind someone that this is punishment. “Do you want to stop playing? Do you want to take the public spanking at Tygers?” “No. “What about this one? It has knots on the end of the lashes. Please. She shook her head. Diego. She watched him as he walked to the wall.” He hung it back up.’” His fingers continued to caress her face. sir. you need a good old-fashioned tool. “No. Not that one. “Please punish me for being a bad girl. He picked one out and flicked it through the air.” “‘A very bad girl. my liege?” It looked painful and she licked her lips.” His hissing noise made her shiver and she shook her head.” He stepped back.Sweet Silence 29 Sorcha swallowed her pride. Hated the sting that accompanied it. “Do you like this one?” He gave her an enquiring glance.” . my liege. “A very bad girl.” He hung it back up and selected another one. “I’ve always found that.” He turned to her and unbuckled the belt he was wearing and she shook her head again. Please.
He stepped up next to her and trailed the belt over her bare bottom. putting her hands on the table for support. then bent slightly. and let the belt fly across her behind. baring her behind. She wasn’t sure if it was from fear. When he spoke again. and the image of Diego. It would just make the spanking that much harder. It had been so long since she’d been spanked. her heart beating wildly. made her quiver.” His deep. his voice was steely with anger. “I know you’ve been spanked before. She spread her legs and waited. Get into the proper position. right on top of where the first one had landed. but none came. then he stepped back. or anticipation. my liege. A third one turned her groan into a harsh cry. She jerked. the belt in his hand. This time the groan escaped. ever do anything to me like you did on Monday night. She knew better than to beg him to stop.30 Melinda Barron “Turn around. After he’d delivered two more swats. he stepped up and placed his lips against her ear again.” She did as he said. expecting her reaction to bring about a demand for stillness. “Don’t you ever. and right next to her ear. Do you understand me?” “Yes. .” She swallowed a groan when he bit her earlobe. His breath was hot on her neck. beg him to make three enough.” Sorcha tucked the back of the skirt into the waistband. “Back up until the leash is tight. He licked the place he’d bitten. and just as the sting had started to fade he landed another lash. She took several steps back. authoritative command made her shiver and she immediately obeyed him. just hard enough to send a jolt of pain through her body.
It’s punishment. then kissed her neck. We’re almost done. Please.” “Let me hear it. I’m sorry. I was in that handcuff for five minutes. “Please. may I have another?” She wanted to ask how many more times he was going to swat her ass with the leather. she repeated the words. and instead of repeating her mantra. Diego. but she knew better. she cried out. “That’s what I wanted to hear. all weekend. She’d barely had them out before the second one came. I mean. so sorry. my liege.” “I’m sorry. my liege. my liege.” “It’s supposed to hurt. Don’t you ever do anything like that again.” Tiny tears snaked from her eyes.” His voice was soft and almost felt like a caress. Please. Do you understand?” “Yes. and asking for another. my liege. When the leather landed again. Do you understand?” “Yes.” He licked her shoulder up to the leather halter.” The leather was smooth as he ran it over her ass. You have three more to go.Sweet Silence 31 “You’ll count the remaining strokes. “That’s the first time you’ve said you’re sorry. “Good girl. Please. No. “Three more. my liege. he might increase the number and make the trip to Chama very. and a fourth. I’m sorry I was bad. After this it’s nothing but pleasure and submission. very uncomfortable. If she questioned him. I’m so. You get two swats for every minute.” She shivered when he kissed her shoulder. The seventh swat made her cringe. You embarrassed the hell out of me the other night. it hurts. The five swats had made her burn. my liege. Understand?” . I’m so sorry. The first five were for a warm up. “Say it again.” “Please forgive me for being bad. begging to be forgiven. and a third.” “No.
Her whole body was on fire. now. “Don’t be embarrassed. a bloom of embarrassment spreading across her face. flicking her clit with his thumb. my liege. and she wanted to beg him to take her here. I’m so sorry. but I’ll do it. then he sniffed and smiled. her clit pulsing under his touch. “Relax. Even a punishment makes you excited. or it’ll hurt worse.” She shook her head in denial. I’ll have to remember that. I prefer things like floggers for some erotic whipping. “I’ll be damned. the ninth landed before the word liege left her mouth.” She sniffled as she turned. Sorcha.” She inhaled sharply. sucking in grateful air as she watched him thread his belt back through the loop of his jeans. Don’t give me a reason to spank you again.” He moved until he was inches away from her. she bit her lower lip. ready to burst out and send her into sweet oblivion. Sir. . It had been so long since a man had touched her that way. I don’t like to spank.32 Melinda Barron She nodded.” He dipped his finger inside. Maybe my views on spanking will change. “We’re done with the spanking. “Please forgive me for being bad. The eighth swat landed and she repeated her words. “Someone’s pussy’s wet. He continued to tease her with his finger. and she closed her eyes in pleasure.” “Stand up and turn around. You know that. even as he increased the pressure on her throbbing center.” Sorcha lowered her eyes. It just shows how beautifully submissive you are. You’re soaking. When he stepped away from her she tightened up her muscles.” “Yes. When the tenth swat landed she sighed. When his hand cupped her pussy. She could feel an orgasm building inside her. and relaxed on the exhale.
and held them out to her mouth.Sweet Silence 33 “May I come.” He undid her leash. sniffed.” “I do. You can’t expect me to ride on a major highway for two hours with my pussy and breasts showing. I might use the flogger. and we’re ready to go. Please. wrapped it around his hand. Now. making her run into his chest.” “I whipped you so that you’d say you’re sorry. so you can have a taste of what I felt when Ty came in and found me chained to a wall. “What?” She tottered on the heels as she followed him. This is a little bit of embarrassment. He stopped short and turned swiftly. my liege?” “You may not.” “What if someone sees me?” “That’s the idea. Next time.” “It’s not fair. sucking them hard. “I’m half naked. She waited for praise. It’s…” “I won’t warn you again about speaking.” She licked him tentatively. and started toward the door. no. She backed up and looked at him.” “Diego. I’ll whip your pussy with it and you’ll really be wet. I have a beautiful one at the cabin. “Clean me. “We’ll get you a coat. You left me chained to a wall for all to see.” He moved his fingers away. just like the one I just showed you. but none came when he stepped away.” . voice your concerns so we can get them out of the way. with soft leather strands with knots at the end.” “You just whipped me for that. then pulled his fingers into her mouth. It’s your punishment for locking me to the wall.
“A punishment like this is very effective, don’t you think? Now, I’m going to bind your ankles once we’re in the truck. If you keep arguing with me, I’ll do your wrists, too. Now, remain silent.” He led her from the room and Sorcha’s mind reeled. She was going to be half naked in the cab of a truck for two hours, with her ankles bound. When they entered the living room he went to a closet and took out a long leather duster, which he put around her shoulders. “There. For going from the house to the truck. Once you’re tied and have your seatbelt on, you’ll shrug it off so I can see all of you.” He started for the door and she stopped, holding up her hand as he turned to her. “Yes?” “My bag and purse?” “You won’t need them. I’ll provide you with the clothing I want you to wear, and any other essentials.” Panic set in. “Please, at least my purse? What about my ID?” It had her new cell phone inside, plus a tape recorder, and notebook and paper. He studied her for a few minutes, then dropped her leash. “Wait here.” He picked up her purse and walked to the couch, turning it over and dumping it out. She watched him put her wallet, keys, and makeup bag inside, then cross to her. He left the recorder, paper, pens, and phone on the table. “My phone?” “No. You’re mine this weekend, remember? Do you not trust me? Do you think you’ll need the phone to call someone? Do you want the contract we discussed?” She shook her head. “I trust you, but…” She looked longingly at the phone. “You want the phone as security, instead of a contract?”
“Yes, my liege. Please.” That, and Ruben might call. She watched him consider the options before he finally walked to the table and picked up the phone. “All right. I’ll give you that one concession. But it will be the only one you get without paying a price this weekend. Understand?” “Yes, my liege.” “Good. Let’s go. I want to play tonight.”
They were almost to Espanola when he broke the silence that had reigned in the car. “Thirsty?” She nodded. “You may speak, mi juguete.” “Are you going to call me your toy all weekend?” “Yes.” She could hear the humor in his voice. “I repeat. Are you thirsty?” “Yes, my liege.” “Good. We’ll go through a drive-through. Have a bite to eat, too.” Sorcha wiggled on the seat. True to his word, Diego had wound several lengths of nylon cord around her ankles, binding them together. He’d given her a pair of bandage scissors “just in case,” so she could cut the ropes if something happened. She’d thanked him with a smile. Now, as he prepared to pull into the small town, she was very aware she was practically nude, with bound ankles for any person to see at the drive-through.
” “It doesn’t matter if I am a cop. “No. he popped the breast free from the halter and pinched her nipple. fries. After he’d placed the order. and sodas. Her behind ached from where the belt had marked it. the straps burning. She’d probably run inside and tell her friends the woman in the truck was half-naked. so we’re not doing anything illegal. He massaged her until Sorcha moaned. He placed his lips on her neck and gently nibbled on her. Are we?” “No. now she had to worry about being seen in these skimpy clothes. capturing her breast and squeezing gently. You’re lucky I’m letting you cover the ropes.” She held up her hand. Once we get outside you’ll uncover for me again. you may not. or cheeseburger? Or something else?” Diego ordered cheeseburgers. licking the spot before whispering.Sweet Silence 37 “Take the coat out from under you. despite her unease. She knew that she’d deserved the spanking. my liege. “Please. We’re two consenting adults. Of course you are a cop. “You can put it over your bottom half and hide that sweet pussy and bound legs. he leaned over and pushed his hand inside the halter. he rang the attendant back to make sure there were no onions on the burgers. so you wouldn’t get in trouble. “Yes?” “May I take off the ropes in town? So I can wear the coat? My breasts…” “You may not. Sorcha laughed. Are you forgetting what you did to me on Monday?” “No. When the carhop came to the window. my liege. but that didn’t make it hurt any less. may I put on the coat?” For an answer. I like looking at those beautiful tits. displayed in all its glory.” he said. she would see Sorcha’s chest. Sir. Plus.” .” “Would you like a hamburger. But you’re only letting me cover the ropes because the carhop might see them and call the cops.
The waitress knew Diego had been fondling her breast. on your body.” “Very true. Sorcha shivered under his lips and hand. true. and we don’t want that. She groaned when he gently bit it.” “If you feel tingling or any discomfort at all. Understand?” “Yes. She’s coming. you stop me immediately. and her pussy was wet. she winked at Sorcha and mouthed. She’d been naked in scenes at Tygers. that one time. he leaned over and suckled Sorcha’s nipple.38 Melinda Barron Sorcha could see the carhop heading toward them. but it can also be dangerous. “Master Diego. “Lucky you. had been sucking her. She put them in the holders and swallowed deeply. She’d never been on display in public before. It’s easy to cut off circulation. They were the only car in the drive-through. They were almost done when he broke the silence. He straightened and pushed Sorcha’s breast back into the halter. “Have you ever done bondage before?” “Only with you. She knew she might be leaving a spot on Diego’s leather seats. It will be your job to let me know if you’re feeling any numbness. When she handed Diego his change. She looked to be in her mid twenties. His touch was magical.” He rolled up the window and they began to eat.” . but this was different. not in the open. Well. The woman gave them a knowing glance and handed Diego bags of food and two drinks.” He continued to squeeze her nipple and nibble her neck. but the workers were there. since she wasn’t wearing any underwear. my liege. As the woman neared the car. but that didn’t make Sorcha feel any better. or pinch a nerve during bondage. Sorcha’s nipples throbbed under the leather.” “Bondage is a lot of fun. or tingling. Sorcha’s hands shook as she took the drinks from Diego so he could pay the woman.
” He pushed the speed up and sighed. Don’t internalize it. “Now push the coat down and show me your pussy. you have to let me know. Any meaning?” “No. her clit throbbing as she did.” “Very well. You have to remember that. I’ll test it throughout. When she’d parted the skirt to reveal her pussy. but if you think something is too tight.” His words were scaring her worse than the idea. What do you want to use for a safe word?” She stroked herself. you might struggle.” “That’s interesting. but she’d only been tied once. but she knew that was about to change. Tell me about your childhood. Let me help you deal with it. while the bindings will be tight. The general rule of thumb is you need to leave enough space to get two fingers between the rope and your subbie. “Play with it. “We need to talk about something that’s going to take my idea off a high-speed blowjob.” “Yes. my liege. She didn’t think she’d panic. They were discussing their mutual love for football when he slowed the truck and turned off onto a dirt road.” He started the truck and pulled out onto the main road. they won’t be too tight. “Piggy.” “I understand. It’s very important.Sweet Silence 39 “Good. and not for very long. Take your hands away from your pussy.” They’d hit the outskirts of town and Diego was pushing the truck up to highway speed. and they talked about growing up. “Even if I’ve ordered silence. safety takes precedence. from rope burns to worse. tell me. and that can cause injury. Sir.” “If you feel any kind of panic. Now. . my liege. If you panic. Diego hissed.” Sorcha laughed. her in Albuquerque and him in Santa Fe. It just came to me.
bringing it down to release her breasts. The first form of bondage we’re going to practice is verbal bondage. She teetered across the dirt road on her high heels. traveling down a winding path before stopping in front of a cabin. Walk to the deck.” Sorcha leaned over and cut the bindings. “Stroke that clit and listen to me very.40 Melinda Barron “We’re here?” “Almost. turn to me and stand there. Take your breasts out of the halter. my liege. When he stopped the truck he turned to her. When you’re on the porch. head bowed. more for show than anything else.” “Yes. . my liege.” “Cut off the ropes on your ankles.” Sorcha undid her seatbelt and unsnapped the halter. She knew her behind would be red from the spanking. waiting. and that the belt would have left definite marks on her skin. I’ll tell you to get into a certain position. It’s a few miles back. with a wraparound deck that held a table and chairs. She knew the gesture had been symbolic. and you’ll stay there until I say otherwise. raise the skirt to your waist. Do not move or speak until I say so. Sorcha examined the structure as best she could. Any deviation from the position brings punishment. They were loosely tied. arms clasped behind your back. Do you understand?” “Yes. and Diego turned to the left. She settled back onto the seat. since it was dark outside. very carefully.” Sorcha exited the car and wiggled the tight skirt above her hips. to remind her she was bound to Diego for the weekend. It seemed large for a cabin. The cool air soothed her just a bit. with your legs spread. “When you get out of the truck. The truck bumped over the dirt road.
Sweet Silence 41 hoping she didn’t fall and break something. She wanted to lift her gaze to the truck. The headlights illuminated her and she wondered what he was thinking. Was he jacking off? She knew he’d been hard most of the trip. She almost cried out in relief when the truck door opened. It was Diego. and she’d barely touched it in the truck. and the knowledge made her already aroused pussy pound harder. supplies he’d brought for the weekend. to relieve her tension. She carefully climbed the stairs and turned toward the truck. Maybe if she focused her energies on that she would be able to stay still. She wondered what he was doing. His domination of her was easy. My liege! Please! She bit her lip and tried to focus on a pebble that sat on one of the deck boards. What he was doing. Needed to come. she knew. . She wanted to come. She was conscious of the fact Diego watched her as she walked. She knew he was taking stuff out of the truck. beg him to come to her. Her legs and arms began to tremble slightly from being kept in the same position. Was he just feasting his eyes on her body. Was he relieving his own pressure while hers built? Or was he simply watching to make sure she stood absolutely still? Verbal bondage. How many minutes had passed? Four? Five? More? The night air grew colder and she felt goose bumps rise on her flesh. Her clit felt as if it was on fire. see if she could make him out. She heard it slam and another one open. spreading her legs and bowing her head. Sorcha kept her head down. All he had to do was open his mouth and she was ready to submit. who caused that sensation. Staying in the exact same position until her Master gave her permission to move. the leather wrapped around her but open to reveal her most intimate parts? Her behind throbbed again and she wanted to turn and look at him.
It was a chair -well. “And another one point. But he didn’t. She gauged the height of the chair. In a few minutes he would tell her to stand upright. and watching turned him on. hoping at some point he’d let her take the clothing off. The screen door opened and she heard him set something down behind her. Bad girls who get points have to sit on the punishment chair. “That’s a punishment point. That was a good thing. Each point is two and a half minutes.” he said. You have two points so far. She moved them and shook her hands. one hand holding her in place. Superman? How had he heard that soft moan? She wiggled her legs slightly.” His voice was deep. walked to the front door. But no sound.42 Melinda Barron Leaves crunched under his boots as he walked toward her. while I watch. despite the trembling in her legs. more like an old-fashioned banana seat you’d find on a bicycle. “My punishment chair. safe in the knowledge he’d gone inside. for five minutes.” Her legs felt like jelly. then turned to Diego. “I heard that. Move your arms and legs and relax for a few minutes. not really a chair. . so that’s five minutes. Who was he. He went inside and Sorcha moaned softly. or speak?” She shook her head. “Come here. But she knew that wasn’t going to happen. Nestled in the center of it was a large dildo. He ran his fingers up and down her thighs. He passed her by. she knew it. but she stayed still.” Five minutes? Surely he was kidding. “Better. That meant he liked clothing and other things. and she heard a key turn in a lock.” His footsteps faded inside the house and she groaned inwardly. Her eyes widened at the sight. He’d said he was visual. When his hands encircled her hips she bit back a cry of delight. He stood next to the item he’d brought outside. and she could put her feet flat on the ground. Bad girl.” She walked toward him. Did I tell you to move. He delivered a sharp slap to her ass. “Stand up. You’ll sit on the cock and remain absolutely still. It looked like her legs would reach the ground.
and then faster and faster. Her ass hurt something fierce. “Stay right there. “Now. How had she missed that? It was on a hydraulic system of sorts. “There. When it did. “Very nice. the cock slid out. Her pussy ached with desire and she squeezed the dildo lightly. Take the cock deep inside you. She hadn’t had anything inside her for so long. throwing her head back and rocking on the cock. just like a chair in a beauty salon. loving the feel of it deep inside her.” When she lifted up. Sorcha thought a minute might have passed. stand on your tiptoes. “There. bending slightly. It slid into her wetness easily and Diego murmured his approval. so it could adjust to different heights. “Straddle it. You may put your hands on your thighs for leverage.” She heard the click of a stopwatch. it’s been thoroughly cleaned. The cock moved inside her as the chair rose to meet her behind. she lifted her gaze to him. Diego crossed behind her and the chair began to move. Even though she’d rather it was Diego. and the creak of wood as Diego sat down. Stay on your tiptoes. Much better. Her already aching pussy and clit contracted and she came. maybe two. straddling the seat and putting the cock at her entrance. the dildo felt fantastic. . screaming out Diego’s name.” Time seemed to move at a snail’s pace. And let us begin. when the dildo began to vibrate. her welts cried out in dismay. slow at first.” She settled her hands near her knees. Sorcha swallowed a groan. Don’t worry. Would you like me to put a condom on it?” She shook her head.Sweet Silence 43 When she was next to him.” Diego said. bouncing up and down as the orgasm overtook her.
“Master Diego. “You are out of practice. bad girl. “No excuses. this one more intense than the first. she gasped.” “Stand up. You should have expected that.” Her speech was halting as another orgasm overtook her. Since Thomas left. When she made a choking noise. Did I give you permission for that orgasm?” Waves of pleasure rolled through her as she bounced. You’ve been arousing me all night. and been ready for it. and really. How long’s it been since you’ve been fucked by a flesh-and-blood cock?” “Two and a half years. then he started again. Good little subbies would have never done that. if he would take her back to Santa Fe and tell her she wasn’t disciplined enough for him. more. sliding it back and forth. He lifted it to her mouth. When he sighed. “Open. “Not fair. It’s just I was so aroused and…” “Silence. He stared at her and she wondered if he would cancel the weekend. When her contractions had stopped.44 Melinda Barron “Oh. “I’m so sorry. and looked at Diego.” She clamped her mouth shut. more. sliding it in deeper and deeper each time. You’re going to have to earn it. “But not now. still fucking her mouth with the dildo. Not fair. “I was going to fuck you tonight. you bad.” He crossed to her and released the dildo from its harness on the chair. he stopped until she’d regained her composure. and sounded angry. A third orgasm shook her body. She tasted her juices as he pushed it back and forth.” He put the toy cock into her open mouth. stroking the nub and grasping the seat in front of her. If he would take her to his dungeon and whip her again. she held her breath.” he said softly. Oh.” She bounced harder and moved her hands to her clit.” His voice was low. it’s punishing me as much as it is .
Do you understand me?” She nodded and he pulled the cock from her mouth.” She nodded.” .” He stroked her hair. Now clean it. Sorcha. “The next time you have to use the punishment chair. They do as they’re told. “Very good. You lost that privilege. “Good. “But I suppose it’s understandable. since it’s been so long. contracting her anal muscles at the idea. you’ll have to atone for it. Still.Sweet Silence 45 you. Now. There’s cleaner in the cabinet. and meet me in the living room. the dildo won’t be in your pussy. I hope you understand what I mean by that. and don’t have orgasms on the punishment chair.” “So am I. my liege. My subbies are disciplined. “I’m sorry.” “Yes. The bathroom is the first door on the left.” She nodded and lowered her gaze. then turned when he called out her name. my liege. take the dildo inside and clean it.” She started for the door.
“You did well. and fished for her phone. or voice mails waiting. with him putting her in various positions. She and Diego had spent two hours in the living room. She crossed the room quickly. Her shoulders and hips ached from last night. How had she slept so late? She turned to the other side of the bed. picked it up. The pain from the spanking had lessened.46 Melinda Barron Chapter Five Saturday morning dawned bright. making her stay that way while he watched silently. When he’d put her to bed. but it was a delicious ache. after your disastrous start. We’ll play again tomorrow afternoon. She sat up and saw her purse on a chair in the corner. How could she put on anything else? He’d made her leave her clothing at his house. She didn’t remember putting it there. Where was Diego? She sat up and noticed a note near the clock. She’d been careful to behave and stay there. Put on the boots and nothing else. Don’t worry about waking with me. and had earned praise each time he’d changed her from sitting to standing. I want you to sleep all you want. or lying down. he’d stroked her arms. It hadn’t been slept in. The screen showed no missed calls. You’ll need your energy. Diego must have brought it in for her. Come and find me. .” The clock blinked 11:10 at her and she gasped. Sorcha stretched her arms above her head.
Ruben! Hurry up. “No.” Once outside. tearing off an edge. “The cabin is set far back. kneeling quickly. She took it. she hurried to his side. He sat at a table.” She shivered as he ran his fingers over her breasts.Sweet Silence 47 Damn it.” “The halter? In town?” . my liege. and offering it to her.” “Come and kneel by me. The search for Diego led to the front deck. Good morning. actually enjoying the way the leather felt against her legs. “Did you have that delivered?” She stood in the doorway. She slipped into the boots. her hunger growing as she chewed it and swallowed.” “Town? But I have no clothes. I went into town. He fed her the entire thing before offering her a sip of his coffee.” He took a tortilla off his plate. calmly reading a newspaper. Hands behind your back. “Hungry?” “Yes. my liege. Do as you’re told. the cool morning air wrapping around her naked body. so I don’t want to spoil your appetite.” “Good answer.” “I brought things for you to wear.” She glanced around and he laughed.” “Good morning. “We’re going to go into town for lunch. “For what? Food? Or something else?” “Both.
Laughter filled the air. “You think I’m going to tell you? You’ll see it, whether it’s the halter or something else, when I’m ready for you to get dressed. “First, I’m going to punish you for last night. You were a very bad girl, coming on my punishment chair, not once, but three times.” Sorcha blushed furiously and looked away. “Look at me.” She lifted her eyes to him. “What did you want most last night, Sorcha?” “Your cock.” The words rushed out of her mouth. “Buried in your tight cunt?” “Yes, my liege.” “That’s exactly what you won’t get. Not right now, anyway.” He cleared his throat. “Clean off the table, then come and stand next it.” Sorcha blinked her eyes furiously. He started the day quickly, that was for sure. There wasn’t much on the glass-topped table, just a plate with some tortillas and his coffee mug. She put them in the kitchen, then stood with her arms behind her back. Diego sat across from her on a seat built into the railing. “Good. Now, do you remember your job?” “Yes, my liege. I’m to tell you if I’m feeling any discomfort, of any kind, the minute it starts. If I feel panic, I’m to tell you.” “Very good. You break those rules and we’ll head back to Santa Fe immediately. I don’t play around with safety.” “Yes, my liege.” “Now, I’m going to hog-tie you.” “OK, I’m panicking.” She backed up and shook her head. “No. Please.”
Diego laughed softly. “It’s a simple thing, really, but I expected this response. Don’t panic. Take deep breaths and relax.” “I won’t be able to get loose.” “That’s the idea. But I’ll be right here, and I won’t let any harm come to you. You trust me, right?” “Yes, my liege.” And she did. She knew Diego was the foremost bondage expert at Tygers. Still, she was frightened at the idea of being unable to move, of being totally at his mercy. For the first time, she noticed the rope sitting next to him on the bench. He put his hands on it and lifted it up. “It’s nylon, soft and easy to use. It can cause rope burns, so don’t struggle. Just let me guide you.” She nodded, her panic subsiding somewhat. He stood and crossed to her, gently stroking her arms after putting the rope on the table. “Relax, Sorcha. Just relax.” She nodded and let out several deep breaths, and licked her lips. “I’m ready.” “The first thing I’m going to do is put a chest harness on you. It will wrap around your breasts, going above twice, and under once. It’ll also go over each shoulder. Then I’ll secure it in the back. When I bind your arms and legs, they will be secured to the chest harness.” She nodded, and followed his instructions to hold out her arms. She watched him double the rope, then fought off panic as he wrapped it over her breasts. His voice was soft in her ear. “Relax, mi juguete, just relax.” The rope made passes under and over her breasts, then over her shoulders. “I’m tying it off now. How’s the pressure?” “It doesn’t hurt.” “Is it cutting into your skin?”
“No, my liege.” “Very good. Now, lie down on the table, on your stomach. Still feeling all right?” “Yes, my liege.” “Put your wrists together behind your back.” When he started to wrap the ropes around her wrists, she took several deep breaths. “Relax. Usually when I do a hog-tie, I secure the wrists and ankles together. Since you’re a newbie, I’m going to secure all four limbs to the chest harness. Less pressure on the wrists that way.” “Thank you, my liege.” “Anything to put your mind at ease, little one.” After a few minutes, he patted her on the butt. “Try and move your arms, gently.” She pulled on them. “I can’t. I can…” “Relax. Take deep breaths. Don’t struggle. Any pain, or rope cutting into the skin?” “No, my liege.” “Good girl. We’re almost done. Bend your legs at the knee.” The leather boots creaked as she followed his instruction. He bound her ankles together; and she felt him wind rope through the harness on her back. When he pulled on the rope, her shoulders lifted slightly. She felt pressure, but not pain, on her shoulders and chest. He tied them together, and stepped back. “You feeling all right?” “Yes, my liege.” Sorcha’s breath came in short, shallow gulps. She was excited, yet just a little frightened at the same time. The only thing that kept her from panicking was Diego’s calming presence. He tested the ropes to make sure they weren’t too tight and she moaned softly.
My dick is pounding for you.” Sorcha’s voice cracked with need. my liege. She was going to see his cock. No moans. You look so beautiful all tied up for me. you tell me. at the first sign of pain or panic.” “What does my toy want?” “To submit. Sorcha knew this was coming. my liege.Sweet Silence 51 “Remember. unless you are asked a direct question. my liege. her idea of panic totally forgotten. “Please what?” “Please let me see your cock. knew he was going to show her what she couldn’t have. “How’s that ass?” “Sore. my liege. Otherwise. Understand?” “Yes. “To follow your orders. remain absolutely silent.” “Good answer. She kept her eyes glued to him. “Are you my toy for the weekend?” “Yes. Would you like to see it?” “Yes.” “I’m glad. When his jeans were totally unbuttoned he reached inside and stroked himself. my liege.” He grinned at her and shook his head. see the piercing she’d heard about from other subs. my liege?” “Is that a question.” “Say please. or a statement?” . No nothing. It reminds you to…” He left the words hanging and Sorcha blinked her eyes rapidly. my liege.” He stepped in front of her and began to unbutton his jeans.” “Please.
“Good girl. She eagerly tasted the silver. you can taste my cock. trying to move in to taste his cock. and he finally pulled it loose. he moved to where she could just touch the tip of his cock ring. if you behave. stopping where she couldn’t reach him with her mouth.” He moved away and sat back down on the bench. I’m going to make you mine. Very good girl. “No. She fought back a moan and closed her eyes. his hand stroking his cock. “So fucking beautiful. Would you like a taste of my cock?” “Yes. I’m going to claim all three holes tonight. I love seeing you all tied up like this.” When it was fully extended.52 Melinda Barron “Statement. “Fuck. It’ll fit perfectly in your mouth. “If you’re a good girl tonight. your pussy.” She almost laughed at the eagerness in her voice. He was long and thick.” His words made her shiver as he continued to stroke himself. She hoped that something was her. my liege.” . yeah. please. His cock sprang forth as if in search of something. “Stick out your tongue.” he groaned out as his cum shot into the air. watching Diego masturbate. It reminds me to follow your orders. He had both hands inside his pants now. Diego stepped in front of her. She tried to wrap her mind around the fact that she was hog-tied on a table. just a lot of pressure. and your ass. She could tell he was stroking himself slowly. “Pain?” There was concern in his voice. “Just a little while longer. his movements increasing. The movement pulled on her bonds and she moaned softly. and all mine.” He nodded. and the silver ring twinkled from the end.” He stepped toward her and tested the pressure on her bindings.
hurts. Remain silent.” He stroked her hair. my liege.” He cleaned himself with a towel that sat near his extra rope. “Thank you. The pressure was intense.” “Thank you.” He came back down and pushed his tongue inside her mouth. his lips coming down on hers in a punishing kiss. Finally. and Sorcha’s body hummed in answer to him.” His hand stroked his cock as she sucked his fingers into her mouth.” She sat up. then sit up slowly. When the ropes were gone. “Swallow. she said. She noticed his hand motions had increased. stood quickly. he rubbed her shoulders. and watched with bated breath when he took a rope from the table and threaded it through the D-ring on her collar. As the bonds loosened. Her legs fell back and she sighed. “I loved it.” She opened her mouth as he shot another stream into her mouth. and pulled her to him. He put his cock away and began to untie her. It had been incredible to be bound for him. and walked to her. “Relax for a few minutes. “Arch your back.” He pulled on a rope and the pressure was gone.” His words sounded strangled.” The pressure on her bonds was incredible and she fought back a delicious moan. my Sorcha. when he’d given her yet another taste. I hope you liked that. “Taste. He wrapped it around his hands. Sorcha felt a sense of loss. to have him see her like that. his cum tasting sweet and sticky. he stepped toward her. and when his fingers were clean.Sweet Silence 53 He caught some on his fingers. . His free hand captured her jaw as he pushed away. his touch gentle. “Open for me. “Swallow it all. and open for me. “Pressure.
Come for your Master. His mouth came down on hers again as she came. She was flush against his body. “Did I give you leave to speak?” She shook her head. “I thought not. His eyes flashed dangerously and she swallowed hard. lifting her face to his. you cried out when you came. her own quaking with pleasure. sending her spiraling out of control as he pulled tighter on the rope. Hard!” Sorcha cried out as she followed his command.” His voice was dark and Sorcha quivered. One point for the chair. He pulled the rope in her D-ring tighter. Pinch it. “Stroke that clit. “Mi juguete.” She pressed her forehead into his chest and sniffed.54 Melinda Barron He broke away and stared down at her. Like soap and strong male. “All mine. Plus. He pushed her finger aside and pinched her clit again. swallowing her cry of delight.” “My liege. his thumb tracing her jaw. He smelled so good. Shall we go into town and see what the rest of the day brings?” . Which is at least two or three more points.
Marie. He would take her tonight. in her pretty little ass that still bore the marks from his punishment. It would also give him time to get his emotions under control. and would cry before submitting. He didn’t want to force a woman into bondage. . and after that. he wanted one who gloried in it. He’d stopped himself in time. The drive would provide them with beautiful scenery as the trees turned from their bright summer greens to brilliant fall orange and red. the more excited she had become. This morning he’d been tempted to claim her. He’d had one collared sub in his life. Colorado. Diego let her go after the second time. He glanced at her. She sat straight as he’d ordered her to do. The more rope he put on her. first in that sweet pussy. She’d been too fragile for what he wanted.Sweet Silence 55 Chapter Six Rather than go into Chama. looking out the window at the beautiful scenery. to tell her he wanted her to be his sub 24-7. She hated bondage. knowing it was too soon for that. Sorcha affected him much more than he thought she would. Diego opted to drive the two hours to Durango. as Sorcha had done that morning. though. And he didn’t claim subs. By the time he’d finished the hog-tie her juices had soaked her thighs and provided him with a heavenly scent that made him want to rip her bindings off and bury himself deep inside her.
” Diego said. there’s a first time for everything. to let the cool air come inside. “As you can tell. And that little slipup is worth three points. He’d had her lift the skirt to mid thigh. Do some public fucking.” she whispered. as she stroked herself gently. but they showed off her legs. Stroke your clit and talk to me.” . “Spread your legs. Eat some dinner. my liege. Sir. but remained silent. “This is so beautiful.” “Yes.” She obeyed. You’re up to seven. “It’s been years since I’ve been in this area in the fall.” She sniffed and he was glad that he’d left the windows open just a bit. there’s only a fifty-fifty chance we’ll get caught and sent to jail. The heels weren’t as high as the boots. at least. Sir. “I love the outdoors. do a little shopping. “You’re doing so very well.” “Neither do I.56 Melinda Barron She wore a loose black skirt and a tight. “Do you have plans for this afternoon?” “Nothing special. “Excuse me?” “What’s wrong? Never been fucked in a public place?” “No. His cock sprang to life as he watched her. I thought we’d walk the square.” She whipped her head toward him. Don’t worry.” “Well. and the smell in the air.” She smiled at him.” “Diego! I don’t want to go to jail. low-cut red sweater. All the colors. And remember where I told you the dildo would be going tonight?” “Yes. He’d picked them out with her body in mind. because they would be doing some walking.” A giggle escaped her lips and his cock pushed against its bonds.
Despite her original objections. to have a woman he would be bound to in more ways than ropes and chains. “Family member?” “No. it was about a job. She just might be the perfect sub for him. Thanks.” She hit the end button without saying good-bye and he frowned.” “That’s right. They’d just hit the outskirts of town when her cell phone rang. see how it went. I don’t control that part of your life.” She nodded and pulled it from her bag just as it quit ringing. Waking up with her and sleeping with her would be perfect.” “Job offer?” She straightened her shoulders and shrugged. silence for the rest of the trip. He smiled as he navigated the road. But he’d denied himself that pleasure for a long time.Sweet Silence 57 “Where?” “My ass. yes. Now. Maybe he’d try it tonight. liked to feel her soft body pressed close to his own.” . “Um.” She nodded and turned her head toward the scenery. It’ll open you up for me. my liege. He wondered what it would feel like to have a permanent sub. “Hello? Yeah? OK. he knew Sorcha was up for anything. I have to do an interview on Monday. He liked to cuddle with a woman. She jumped and looked at him. at a small paper. He hadn’t slept with a woman in his arms for ten years. It started again seconds later and she whispered. “Aren’t you going to answer it?” “May I?” “Of course.
He locked his gaze upon her and was gratified when she didn’t move her gaze away from his own. Sir. yeah. we’re not exclusive.” “I do. cryptic phone call had been about a job interview.” She put the phone back in her purse and he frowned. No man in my life. He parked the truck in a lot and turned to her.” He held the emerald bead choker up to her neck and smiled. but it’s getting back to work where you need to be. it is.” “I’m not. I want us to be.” “You sure? You can tell me. heading toward the square that housed many different shops and attractions. right? It’s small. I swear. His mind wandered as he searched for a parking space. I would think after two long years you’d do more than whisper to a potential employer and not jump for joy. I can tell. very excited.” Sorcha whispered. Sir. my liege. I don’t need it.” “If I find out you’re lying to me…well.” He traced her lips with his thumb. “Good. Let’s go shopping. “Besides.” “Yes. “You have a man in your life?” “No. I hate lies.” Although.” “Yeah.” ***** “It’s so expensive. “No. “You don’t seem excited. There was no way that brief.58 Melinda Barron “That’s good. She was lying to him.” “I’m excited.” He wove the truck through town. .
So very pretty.” He traced the beads and she smiled. “I can’t afford it. “Very good. and I consider it a collar for you to wear in public. his fingers resting on the beads.” “She’ll wear it out. you’re going to return it after this weekend?” She winced inwardly at the look that crossed his face. She should tell him about the phone call from Ruben. “It looks so beautiful with her coloring.” She leaned toward him and kissed his cheek.” “And then what. so you need to take this and stop arguing with me. “I…” “Hush.” “Don’t argue with me. my liege.” “Yes.” . “This is three hundred dollars.” “That’s right.” Diego told the clerk.” She took Diego’s credit card and moved toward the register. He stayed right where he was. and she needed to get back to Albuquerque early Monday so she could travel the three hours up to Farmington and talk to Joseph Black Hawk. Their gazes locked and guilt washed over her. or try to force her to stop. And refusing a gift is bad luck. He didn’t pull away from her.” Diego’s words caressed her as he fastened the choker around her neck. “Diego.” Her voice was soft. she is. “Yes. let him know she was still chasing the story.” “Yes. Sorcha shook her head before he’d moved his hands away. I bet the clerk would love that.Sweet Silence 59 “Why don’t you try it on her?” The sales lady nodded her head vigorously. Or I’ll swat your bottom right here. “Diego. mi juguete. and it even looks wonderful with that sweater. It’s a gift.” “I’ve had enough of that lately.
I was going to call you soon and let you know I’ve got some great new rope. I think I’ll stock up. Once inside the outdoor shop. or the paintings they saw in a museum front. Blair’s wife smiled at her as they moved past the counter that held camping gear. welcome. “Diego! Long time no see. Purple. It’ll look beautiful lying on her skin. huh? Nice.” “Hello. He put the box for the necklace into one of the several other bags he already carried.” “Come on.60 Melinda Barron She shook her head. The very. “Sorcha. there was no way he’d spank her here. There were cases holding many different types of rope and leather bondage equipment. Sorcha knew she’d been duped. Sorcha’s eyes widened as she stepped inside. Master Blair. Or was there? She knew with Diego anything was possible. And don’t worry. she knew. let’s visit the back room. stopping at times to discuss things they saw in store windows.” She glanced at the clerk. Eight millimeter and six millimeter. then they headed outside. “Where now?” “There’s an outdoor shop just down the way.” “Planning a party?” “Yes. Sorcha. very full skirt he’d given her would muffle any feeling from a hand swat. say hello to Master Blair. and you’re the guest of honor. Plus.” “Yes. The clerk returned and Diego signed the charge slip.” They walked down the street. Who’s your little subbie?” “This is Sorcha. They sell some great rope at inexpensive prices. it will. knows I’m a Master. They went through a storeroom and Blair opened a door leading to another room. my wife.” Diego said as he propelled Sorcha across the store. . Welcome. and sub.
She wondered if the ropes would hold her weight. Silence until I say otherwise. She closed her eyes. and that had been in his living room. if they would bite into her skin. but I’d love for you to try it on your new subbie.” “Be happy to. Or would it be her ass? Either one would do just fine and -“Sorcha!” “Master?” .” Diego said. Sorcha.Sweet Silence 61 “I just designed a new rope swing. suspended from the large tree that sat to the side of Diego’s cabin. and almost everything they’d done this weekend had been outdoors. and how the swing could hang from a steel frame. Let me know how it works. Plus. She likes it. a trickle of excitement started in her nipples and spread through her body. She knew later tonight she would be in that chair.” She listened to Blair tout the many features of the swing. He hadn’t done one thing to her in his dungeon. “Hush. her body suspended in midair? She hoped so. The verbal bondage from last night had been the only thing he’d done indoors. it was suspended from… “Um. The only one I’ve used it on is Kristy. I haven’t marketed them yet. Despite her apprehension. how a subbie would lie on her stomach. the ceiling. and this morning he’d hog-tied her on the outside table. She could only imagine how fantastic it would feel. He loved the outdoors. He’d brought the chair outside. Sorcha knew Diego would choose the latter. It didn’t look sturdy enough to hold her weight. but I’d be honored if you’d take one and try it out for me. or back. my liege?” Her voice was soft. Sorcha’s eyes widened further as she stared at the chair. Would he fuck her? Would he swing her back and forth so she would slide on and off his cock. or from a tree. His cock sliding in and out of her pussy.
Choose.” “The bells?” “Excellent.” Diego said softly. tweaking her already hard nipples until they felt like little pebbles of stone. One for those beautiful tits. the other for her hungry little clit. the flogger ones will move around. he’d make her get totally naked. He attached the clamps. “Walk for us.” Diego said.” “Very yummy.62 Melinda Barron “Stop daydreaming and come over here. adjusting them so they were not too tight. Take your sweater and bra off. “Not bad.” Sorcha walked around the room. “Nipple clamps. “Better give us two pair. you bad girl. then looked down at the case he stood in front of.

She said if he was ever in trouble.” “I can arrange that. First rights. in a trade type of thing. “You can and you will.

You can’t keep saying things like that.” “I’ve known Sorcha for a while.” Sorcha stared at him. She was only there to cause problems the last time. You were trying to bribe a desk clerk. “He -. “I want it in writing.

“I can be. you need to face facts. and I’m not going to let you wander into more trouble by going on this trip alone and saying something that could inadvertently get you into trouble.” “No way. buster.

Now. discomfort. my liege. When he was done with her arms. It had open spots for her face. looping a piece of rope through the D-ring of her collar. The lower portion split into legs that could be moved apart.

What if I fall. “I know you do. Total and complete trust. Master?” “I won’t let you fall. It felt just a little bit tighter than the hog-tie had. I want you to enjoy it as much as I do. This is supposed to be fun for both of us. It’s just all so new.86 Melinda Barron “I’m starting to panic.” “Good. my liege.” “The table looks small. and I am.” “Let me help you climb onto the table.” “What’s wrong? Tell your Master why you’re panicked.
But I’m not going to add the last touches until I’m ready to take your ass.” She took several large sips. She wondered how long he’d been working. Well. he took some and handed it back to her. “What’s the wager?” . How are you feeling?” He ran his hands over the bonds. It had to have been at least an hour. Sorcha.” “Me. my liege.” She heard him move across the room. When he’d finally bound both of her legs to the table he stepped back to admire his handiwork. Your Master can do anything. almost perfect. testing the tension. “More?” “No thank you. my liege. When she was done.” “You look so beautiful. Would you like to see?” “How?” He shook his head. That purple rope complements your skin perfectly. “Fine.” He sat down and leaned against the wall.” “He can make me see things behind me when I’m bound to a table?” “Bet me. complete with a straw.” “Thirsty?” “Yes. “Drink. The movement of the rope felt almost like a braid as he bound her lower limbs to the outstretched table legs. “Oh ye of little faith. “Perfect. Sir. Sorcha sighed. too.Sweet Silence 87 running parallel with her body. Seconds later he knelt down next to her face and offered her a water bottle.
She saw no mirrors. “There are no limits.” “That’s very generous of you. fighting back laughter. you’ll get to choose the prize of your choice. Any time. If I win.88 Melinda Barron “If you win. without question. I get the same thing.” . my liege.” Her gaze darted around the room.” Their shared laughter filled the room and he leaned over and kissed her. You’ll pay for that.” “I can do it in one.” She lifted her gaze to his. My liege.” “What are the limits on what you can ask for?” His chuckle was deep. “Come on. what are you waiting for? Scared?” “There has to be a time limit on this bet.” “In under one minute?” “Under one minute. any place. “That will seal it. He would have to set them up at the proper angles for it to work. “A stopwatch so you know I’m not cheating.” “How?” “The bet. but I’m a bit tied up at the moment. I think it was. You should know that by now.” “Do I detect sarcasm?” “No. “Hmm. Two minutes.” He stood and moved a short table in front of her. biting her lower lip gently.” “I’d shake your hand.
The bet wasn’t fair. “It’s throbbing for me. sawing them in and out of her. she wanted to come. Damn. “You’re very wet.” “I can taste my winnings already. Her bindings made it impossible for her to move her hips and she shook her head in frustration. He disappeared behind her again and within seconds the TV turned on and her back came into view. which pushed the bindings into her skin. trying to detect cameras in the ceilings. Master.” He moved his fingers down to capture her clit. that felt good. .” His hands caressed the ropes. Her pussy and ass were on display. “How much time do I have left?” She glanced at the watch. a video camera held to his face. Sorcha closed her eyes. wheeling a stand with a large TV on it. Sorcha. When he tickled her pussy she shut her eyes tight. “How? I see no cameras. So good. then another. tickling the skin that wasn’t covered with rope. causing a tickling sensation.” She nodded. her legs splayed wide and bent at the knees. seconds later he was back. Not being able to talk was bondage on top of bondage.” She moved her head as best she could. He stepped in front of her. He inserted a finger inside her wetness. When he pulled back to give her a full shot she wanted to groan.Sweet Silence 89 He started the watch and moved away. She bit her lip to keep from laughing. “Twenty seconds. Lord. and opened them again to see his fingers trail down each of her legs. You duped me. Mandatory silence starts now.
” he said.” . I can’t stand it.” Oh. “No. while watching that? Did he think she had super powers? She swallowed hard and closed her eyes as he massaged lube into her rosette.” “You’ll learn when I say silence. what are you going to do?” “Stay silent. The table under her moved. lifting a little at the top and dropping at the bottom. His fingers left her quickly and he slapped her behind. “I never gag a subbie who’s bound. I have a little remote I can use to zoom in.” He caressed her bottom. so I’m putting the camera on a tripod. lord. but she knew Diego had her bound securely to the table and she wouldn’t slide off. How was she supposed to not talk or moan. “This table can even move you into an upright position.” “Very good. and she wanted to cry out when his hands moved away. angling his fingers to hit her sweet spot. focusing the camera on the red handprint that showed up. When he inserted a third finger. she focused on the screen. They have to have the ability to speak if there’s a problem. Do you understand?” “Yes. Sir. “Did you have permission for that?” He slapped her behind again. my liege. so you can watch me fuck your ass. fascinated by seeing something she’d never seen before. Don’t worry.” Don’t tease me like that. “The angle’s a little off.90 Melinda Barron To try and take her mind off his fingers. my liege. Sorcha’s heart beat faster. Sorcha moaned. We’ll think of a proper punishment tomorrow. so I could torture your sweet nipples and cunt while you’re bound. but you have to learn. I mean silence. “I need both of my hands. Now.
” He reached into his pocket and pulled out the nipple clamps with the bells. Finally. inserting his thumb when she’d started to relax. She could see the ring pressed against the latex. then rubbed it around. You’ll play sweet music while I ride you. What was his decoration going to feel like going in and out of her ass? Would it hurt? Would it increase the pleasure? She’d always . Please.Sweet Silence 91 He stepped in front of her and got down on his haunches.” He attached them with enough pressure to make Sorcha wince. Fuck my ass. your cock. Diego. “Good?” She nodded vigorously. “Three of them. Please take my ass. Oh. please. and one for your clit. smearing it over the head. I almost forgot. “I think you’re properly prepared now. and it was more than a little strange. Put it in! He inserted his finger all the way in. Please! Just fuck me! Now.” He removed his thumb and pushed a finger against her opening.” He trickled more lube on her anus. Well. She’d never seen herself there. moving it around. and he added lube to it. Please! Lord. Master. your cock. almost. “Tight enough to keep you on the table. She knew they weren’t tight enough to stop circulation. fuck me. Two for your nipples. Diego walked behind her and caressed her bottom. Her body moved in rhythm to his thrusts and the bells tinkled. pushing inside gently. but loose enough to let those pretty breasts move and make noise for me. this is torture. The sound of a ripping condom package made her tense. She watched the screen as his fingers withdrew. but would cause discomfort. “Which reminds me. which she knew from experience turned to sweet pain. His cock came into view on the screen.
Her rosette puckered. Sorcha wanted to cry out. When he started to thrust. If her bindings had let her. . could almost hear them in her head as she watched his cock plunge in and out of her anus. but not now.” “Yes. to scream and ask him to let her talk. But more than wanting to come. causing sensations she’d never felt before. “Like what you see? Tell me. then parted for him. rocked under the force of his movements and the bells began to ring. the ring sliding against her most sensitive flesh. Seconds later. she wanted to please him. “Pain? Pressure? Panic?” She shook her head.92 Melinda Barron liked being taken this way. When he was all in. let her come. fat worm. softly at first and louder and louder as he picked up speed. He remained still for several long minutes. she would have thrust back at him. The ring dragged up and down her insides. He stopped after a few minutes. She could feel him thrusting inside. she thought she would go crazy. would she like it more with Diego’s Prince Albert added to the mix? He rubbed the tip of his cock against her rosette and she watched the screen intently. He spread her cheeks and she saw her anus. his hands moving down to check her bindings while his cock was still buried deep inside her. he kept himself flush against her. Seconds later.” He pushed more of himself inside and her anus swallowed him up like a hungry bird swallows a big. my liege. and breaking the silence would go against his wishes. So good. he pushed inside. wrapped around his cock.” “Watch me fuck you. She internalized her screams. and in turn Sorcha. I’ll let you speak later. The table. the head of his cock was in. Sorcha. She could feel his cock throbbing inside her.
The ring rubbed her as his cock slid back and forth. Louder. When his thrusting stopped. After a few minutes. She closed her eyes and could swear someone shot off fireworks in the room. waiting almost a full minute before repeating the motion. “Make noise. and began to thrust inside her harder and harder.” Sorcha’s orgasm overtook her. he laid his head on her back. Give me a minute and I’ll get you out. She wanted to scream for it. She felt her sweaty skin slip beneath her bonds and Diego hissed. beg for it. please? Please. Fuck me. Fuck me hard. Sorcha. He pulled on the clamp. harder and harder and she felt a second climax build and spill over. oh Master. One hand left her hip and sought her clit. holy fuck. the bell muffled by his fingers. Now. Diego continued to drive into her. “Come. His fingers tickled the skin that peeked through the bindings and Sorcha knew she was close to orgasm.” made her groan with happiness.” “Master. Instead.” . she kept her mouth firmly shut. “Lie still. slowly and smoothly. wanted to move her arms as the passion rolled through her. Master. he pulled back and thrust back in. Yes. felt them slide across her sweaty skin. “Diego! Oh my lord! Diego!” She struggled against her bonds. Her body tightened.” He grasped her hips and pumped harder. He was feeling the same thing she was. She wanted to touch him. “fuck. He did that three more times. His muttered. Their shared stillness made her feel closer to him than she’d ever felt to Thomas. There’s a chance of rope burns now.” “Not yet. Show your Master how much you’re enjoying his attention. her anal muscles clenching him. May I come.Sweet Silence 93 The bells had stopped ringing and the room was quiet except for their breathing.

Did you have permission for the second one?” “No. You can come that hard. “This is an interesting development. “Just sit there for a little bit and let me untie your arms. “How are you feeling?” “Fine. How many times did you come?” She felt almost naked with the ropes leaving her leg.” “If you can come that easily a second time. she sighed.” He ran his fingers up and down her flesh. But next time. and make it seem like one. and undone the bindings on her abdomen. He rubbed her body. Seconds later he was back. It was more a sigh of loss. “It didn’t hurt.” He finished the first leg and started on the second.” He helped her to sit. yes. “Did that hurt? And you didn’t tell me?” The concern in his voice made her smile.” He started to undo his knots. my liege. “My liege. moving the chair so she was again flat on her stomach. Am I in trouble?” “Not this time. I’m going to have to think of a way to control it. When he’d untied both of them.” Her shoulders creaked and ached when she was finally able to move her arms.” Her words were soft and she gulped. They’ll take a while to fade. “What are you looking for?” “Discolorations of the skin. You’ll ask for permission for each one. Her legs felt like jelly as she tried to stand. Instead. You’re going to have to learn to be honest with me. all I see are the beautiful marks the ropes left. “Just take it easy. “Twice.
You’ve been my subbie for three days now.” “Liar. “Or maybe not.” He picked her up and carried her to the bedroom. thanks.” Her eyes widened. Let’s sleep for a while. my liege?” He crossed his arms over his chest and stared at her. Good bondage takes a while. then we’ll go and get something to eat. He kissed the tip of her nose. “Are you kidding?” “Nope.” “No. “Promise? Um. That’s why safety is so important. Master.” “You are pressing your luck. setting her down gently before sliding in beside her and gathering her in his arms.” “You’re out of practice line isn’t working anymore.” “Geez. are you?” “Not at all. “Go to sleep. Sorcha.” “Go to sleep. I wouldn’t.Sweet Silence 95 He lifted her chin so their faces were even.” She lifted her eyebrows.” . One more slipup and it’s the flogger for you. I mean. Now. You can take your chair punishment in the morning. my liege. then traced her lips with his own. I’d hate to tell everyone the great Diego Fuentes needs to rest after a bondage session. Are you trying to top me? You’re not a switch in disguise. “How about a nap?” “What time is it?” “After six.” “Gee. I think you might enjoy it too much.
” He stroked her arms and she sighed. “Do you always let subbies sleep next to you?” “You’re the first subbie I’ve actually slept with in a while. “Me too.96 Melinda Barron She closed her eyes. But I think I kinda like it. Master. her eyelids feeling heavier.” . nestled against him.
they’d gone to Ward’s office and Sorcha signed the agreement he’d drawn up. It took them five hours to get to Las Cruces on Tuesday.Sweet Silence 97 Chapter Ten On Monday. He still hadn’t claimed his prize. she would be back on the A-list. Sorcha found herself looking at them often. After Sunday’s intense session. It still bore the slight indentations from the chair binding. and wanted to call the main editor at the Trib. And the information could be verified. tell him his reporter wouldn’t be able to get the story. Diego hadn’t bound her again. her bound body pulsing with pleasure as he thrust in and out of her of her rosette. and she wondered what he had in mind. guaranteeing her first crack at the story when they arrested Jaymes. she rubbed her breasts. “Master?” “Yes. When they were inside the hotel room. Within weeks. she would have a job with a steady income. She could hardly wait. running her hands along them and shuddering with the wonderful memory of Diego buried deep inside her anus. Sorcha?” . saying her skin needed time to breathe. She was sure they would offer her a job. But she could. She already had the lead written in her mind.
Besides.” “How could Jaymes know we’re here?” “He’s everywhere. You make sure you don’t stop anywhere on the way there or back. too. Sir. After he knows what you’re after.” “Here’s what you do. Sorcha. we’ll be sold out in seconds flat. You have to be careful because conversations are monitored. Understand?” “Yes. This is very dangerous.98 Melinda Barron “Can we? You know?” “Fuck? No. See if he picks up on it. If someone’s on the take.” “How am I supposed to get the tape?” “Is your cousin smart?” “He’s in prison. “Don’t mention Jaymes. mi juguete. I think you’re lying to me about being a switch. That’s why men like your cousin are in jail while he’s sitting at home watching his big screen TV. Sit down. who’s the Master here? Sometimes. How did you find out about the tape?” “He told his mother. If he doesn’t. and he is smart. about what you’re going to say to your cousin. I really want to go with you but Ward’s right. or the murder.” She sat down on the bed and he sat next to her. it’s a bad idea. even after threatening the life of a cop. taking her hands in his.” “Me.” “I hope he realizes what I’m after. you may need to find a more direct route. and she told me. ask him about an old girlfriend. See if he knows to mention the woman’s name. isn’t he? How smart can he be?” “Prisons are full of smart people who make stupid choices.” . I want to talk about tomorrow. Mention a gift from his mother. not right now.” “I mean it.
“Which cop?” She looked him in the eyes, holding her gaze steady. The stare went on for a few minutes before he said, “Me.” Her heart fell. If Jaymes had killed Diego, she wouldn’t be here right now. She wouldn’t have had the fantastic experiences she’d had in the last few days. She wouldn’t be looking forward to more fantastic times with a man who had filled her heart, as well as her body. “He has to be stopped.” The words were almost whispered. “He will be. This’ll work.” He kissed her forehead. “Hungry?” “A little.” “Me, too. I know a nice little bar in a town not far from here called Dos Burros.” “Two donkeys? That really recommends it.” “I think they really meant two jackasses. It’s an inside joke about the owners, or so I hear. They make a mean cheeseburger there, and I always try to stop by when I’m around.” “More time in the truck? Can’t we just order pizza?” “Only about forty-five minutes. It’s down near the Mexico border.” “You’re the boss.” “Really? Sometimes, I think you forget that.” He stroked her thigh. “Put a dress on for me. And no panties.”
The bar was dark, and Sorcha thought that, although Diego recommended it, she wasn’t sure she wanted to eat anything prepared there. It didn’t seem very clean, and was mostly devoid of customers. A few men played pool near the back, with several women sitting near them. There were two bartenders, both Hispanic males with long black hair, one with a full beard. “Do you really want to eat here?”
“Why, you don’t like it? It’s a great dive.” He nodded to the bearded bartender who came up and jerked his head in acknowledgement. His appearance did nothing to alleviate Sorcha’s misgivings about Dos Burros. “What can I get ya?” “Two beers,” Diego said. “Draft or bottle?” “Longnecks.” Diego turned to Sorcha, leaning in to kiss her neck. “Relax. I’ll protect you if anything happens. You’re safer here than you are taking on Dustin Jaymes, I can guarantee that.” “Whatever you say, my liege.” The bartender appeared and put bottles in front of them. “Six bucks.” Diego handed him his money, then clinked his bottle with Sorcha’s. “To a successful hunt tomorrow.” She watched the bartender walk off, stopping not far from them. “Sounds good,” she said, taking a swig and setting her bottle down. She’d barely swallowed the beer when Diego’s words made her cough. “Seeing that longneck in your mouth reminds me you haven’t given me a blowjob yet. And Thomas used to tout your deep throating abilities.” She put her hand to her check and she swallowed deeply. “Was he lying?” “No.” She darted her gaze to Diego. “I think it’s time I claimed my prize.” He thumped his finger against her nose and turned to the man who’d waited on them. “You got someplace private my lady can give me a blowjob?”
“Diego!” Sorcha whispered, her body turning to jelly. Surely he was kidding? He expected her to perform here, in a dive near the border? She was tempted to turn around and walk out, but how would she get back to Las Cruces? “Holy fuck. You’re not kidding?” When Diego shook his head, the younger man laughed. “Fuck, yeah, the office is open. Can I watch?” He straightened his shoulders, an excited look on his face. Sorcha balked again, shaking her head furiously. “Of course you can,” Diego said, turning to Sorcha. The look he gave her made her toes curl. “Are you going to behave? Remember I won the bet, fair and square.” She nodded, part of her scared to death and part of her fascinated. She trusted Diego, but this was over the top. Diego turned back to the younger man. “I don’t share with people I don’t know, so don’t ask.” Sorcha sighed in relief. A dejected look came over his face; then he shrugged. “Fine, as long as I can watch. It’s back this way.” He jerked his head toward the edge of the counter and turned to his coworker. “Hey, Rico. Watch the bar for me.” “Sure, Joey.” Diego took Sorcha’s hand as they followed the man down a hall. “Please, Master. Something else?” She hissed the words at him, but he didn’t stop or acknowledge them. When they got to the office doorway he stopped. “You can do this. I won’t let him touch you. You don’t even have to get naked. And if you’re nice and sweet, I’ll fuck you tonight, however you want. Soft and sweet. Hard and long. Hell, we might even do it twice.”
“You stand. she is magic. baby? On your knees? Or you want to lie on the desk? It looks empty. or sit?” Diego stroked her hair and Sorcha shivered. and this is my lady.” She responded with a shallow nod of her head. I can do this.” He ran his fingers over her cheek and she nodded. Please.” He held out his hand and Diego shook it. huh? Well.” She looked away and shook her head. um…?” She lifted her gaze to his. Who do you belong to?” “You. Sorcha. I can’t wait to see her suck you.” She knew her voice sounded wobbly and she hated it. Joey Cruz. But I don’t know if I can do this. right?” “That right’s.” “Sorcha.” He shook his head and mouthed. Please. her nerves settling somewhat when he smiled at her. tracing his tongue down her nose before kissing her mouth. You want me to stand. “Diego. “On your knees. she’s definitely magic. “What’s the best for you.” “Yes. Sir. You’re going to have to learn to ask for it. can’t you pick something else?” “No.” Diego kissed her forehead. “Once where? Tell me. “Joey.” “Relax. I can’t.102 Melinda Barron “Once in my.” . I can do this. Just pretend he’s not there. and I’ll kneel in front of you. baby. Master Diego.” Her hands shook as they entered the office and the man shut the door. You’re my liege. “Diego Fuentes. Do you want to obey your Master?” “Yes. “You like it that way. “Behave. “Now come and suck me deep into your throat.
turning back to her. She knew her pussy was wet. taking her down all the way to his balls. she could suck him deep inside. She wrapped her hand around his shaft. his length pounding in her hand. it sprang to life in front of her face. She worked her hand up and down his hard shaft. he was. “Down. man. Diego was right. Once he was over the spot where she might gag. She could hear his soft moans of encouragement and Joey’s murmured. while that other couple had watched. fluffy pillow. and she worried for a moment that she was a little too turned on by the idea. and she’d only done it to him. careful not to catch the ring on her teeth. She guessed his age at about twenty-eight. and push her tongue down into her mouth. They excited her. baby. already hard and ready for action. sucking him in and out to create as much saliva as possible. She mentally told herself what to do. When Diego started to unbutton his jeans. hadn’t he? Put her on her hands and knees and mounted her. She looked at Diego. and stopped when Joey called out. When he released his cock.” She frowned at him. Thomas had taught her how to deep throat him.Sweet Silence 103 Sorcha started to kneel. tip her head back slightly. Joey moved back a few steps and Sorcha knelt down. “Fuck. suck him. putting it down in front of Sorcha. She’d been excited about that. She stroked him gently as she tried to calm her nerves. yeah. even though she hadn’t known they were watching. who was grinning at Joey and shaking his head. It seemed a little out of character for the scruffy looking man to offer her comfort for her knees. He walked to the couch and picked up a big. She kissed the head. His hands toyed with her hair as she sucked him. then slid it into her mouth.” “Thanks. maybe younger. He’d fucked her in the park. Get her mouth nice and wet. her thighs were . Oh.” Diego said. “Here. she wasn’t the one who was naked. how cool is that?” Both men’s words spurred her on. But he hadn’t been nearly as large as Diego. She could do this. she put her hands on his thick thighs.
stroking the underside of his cock with her tongue. it was from sucking Diego.” She took him in and out several times. his guttural moans filling the air. Tan bueno. When he was out she would suck the head of his cock. bebé. Joey’s moans let her know he liked it. her throat contracting around him as her tongue and fingers tickled his balls. yeah. his fingers buried deep in her hair. She stopped when he was almost all in. “Are you all right?” “Fine. She gagged and he pulled back quickly. When she knew he was wet enough. She opened wider and sucked him in. toying with the ring she loved so much. Just like that. deeper than the first time. “Fuck. Eso se siente tan bueno. She couldn’t breathe as he shot his cum down her throat. sucking her Master. Dios mio. oh yeah. She flickered her fingers over his balls. too. baby. kneeling down. “So fucking good. “Ah. But it wasn’t from Joey watching.” He pulsed inside her as the last of his cum shot down her throat. She felt his cock expand in her throat and wanted to push him out.” He shivered as she continued to suck him. Her fingers tickled his balls as she slid off then took him back inside her. she moved her hand down to his balls and sucked his shaft into her mouth. I’m fine. each entrance easier than the last. Just give me a minute. then trailed them back and caressed the spot between his balls and anus. He would thrust his hips at her and she thrilled at his movements. she sucked him deep into her throat. She relaxed her throat muscles and sucked him in a little more before coughing and pushing him out.” . mi juguete.104 Melinda Barron sticky with her juices. She flicked her tongue over his balls and he shuddered in response. She sucked with her throat as he grasped her hair. Like that. When she knew Diego was ready to come. Oh. the ring sliding against the back of her throat as her mouth hit his balls.

So very sweet. But there’s always a first. You sure you don’t share?” “Positive.” “I’m so jealous. Have I ever shared with you?” Sorcha’s heart almost stopped. So tell me.
Soon. ahora! Do you hear me?” “Behave myself? Are you kidding?” Diego took her by the shoulders. but she stopped hitting him. Right now. She lifted her knee as if to slam it into his exposed balls.” “You tricked me.” Anger radiated through her body. To you. My cock’s still out and you might injure it. His chest heaved and his eyes glowed . ¡Pare eso y compórtese. “I’m still your Master. You made me think I was sucking you off in front of a stranger. though. mi juguete. Sorcha. And I assure you. our parents were married when we were born. then she pounded her fists against his chest.106 Melinda Barron Chapter Eleven “¡Usted bastardo! ¡Ambos usted son bastardos!” Sorcha stood and pushed herself away from Diego. Diego pushed away from her and buttoned his cock back into his pants. his laughter making her even madder. Calm down. Don’t forget I’m your Master.” He continued to laugh as Sorcha flailed against him. It doesn’t matter that I’ve known him all his life. his laughter stopped and his tone turned dark.” “He was a stranger. He grabbed her hands and thrust his hips back from her. “Sorcha! Stop that. “He’s your brother?” “Easy.
What he had done was mean. “Don’t be too hard on her.” “I see your mother likes things in twos.” Diego said with a snort.” The look Diego gave her made Sorcha flinch. Dario? Are you a Dom.” He bowed slightly. Santos.” “Fantastic. She was in major trouble. “I’m the oldest. though. and Silvio.” . too. She knew she was in deep trouble for the outburst. “I have a message for you from Ward. “No. at your service.Sweet Silence 107 with anger. I’m Joey. Can I go tonight? Are you taking me out now? Pretending to arrest me?” He wagged his tongue and Diego laughed. And you.” “Obviously not.” Dario said softly. I hate them. She could feel the waves of fury still rolling off Diego at her reaction. “Or else my sub wouldn’t be beating on me. There’s Alejandro. at Dos Burros. And here.” Dario said. “How many other brothers do you have?” “Four. “It did catch her off guard.” Diego held up his hands to silence them both. but she didn’t care. Alberto. “My older brother is the best. two with A and two with S.” “And you are?” “Dario Fuentes. Soon. too?” “I had a good teacher. and we’ve very close in age. Two names that begin with D. She turned to “Joey.” “It was a bet that she lost fair and square. a drug dealer. in a month or so. I’m undercover and I trust you won’t give me away?” She shook her head and sat down on the couch. They’re calling you home soon. “Forgive the beard and hair.” Diego said.
How could he call her a liar? He was the one who had lied. “It’s not the performing. and be normal again.108 Melinda Barron “I can’t wait. but that was beside the point. to deliver a message?” “No. I had a good teacher. but once again. On the couch.” .” “Great.” The brothers laughed and began to talk softly. Sorcha fumed. She had to live with the consequences.” “There was a reason for that. Is this why you’re here. He couldn’t expect her to take a surprise like that and not be mad.” “Pequeña mentirosita. She turned her face from his. but she didn’t want to admit it. Sure.” Diego laughed. Nobody comes to visit me anymore. half of BDSM is mind games. she was sure.” “They’re going to have to stage your death. cut my hair. I always wanted to watch my own funeral.” “You’re sick. I’ve been here two years and I’m ready to go home. shave this beard. True.” “Figures. “Sorcha. “True. “Are you through pouting?” “I’m not pouting. it’s the fact you lied about him being your brother. Knowing Diego knew him would have made the blowjob easier for her. she’d gotten into it as soon as she started. Do you trust me so little that you’d think I’d make you perform in front of a total stranger?” She knew he was right. we’re here on another matter that we can’t talk about. but she couldn’t take it back now.” At least he was laughing again. her hitting his chest had been way overboard. That meant that she would be without an orgasm tonight. He should have told her the man was his brother.
It excited you. I bet your juices are flowing down your leg right now.” Diego hugged Dario close to him. but keeping you on the edge was fun. mi juguete.” Was the reason she’d been so angry because she’d been excited about a total stranger watching her deep throat Diego’s cock? “I am not excited. Say hi to Mom for me.” She obeyed and Diego’s fingers pushed past her slit with ease.” She inched it up slowly. Knowing you’re a closet exhibitionist who’s ashamed to admit it gives me great ammunition for punishments. “I’m sorry.” When she didn’t move. “Sea hermano cuidadoso. Thanks. “Wet as a river. Master. “Spread your legs.” “Will do.” . thank Ward?” “Yeah. he moved her back to where she was leaning against the desk.” Her words were whispered.” “Yeah. Tell her I’ll see her soon.” “Prove it. hoping her pussy would dry before she reached the top.” She leaned her head against his forearm.” “I will be. He crossed his arms in front of his chest. Admit it. pequeño.” Diego pulled out his wallet and handed Dario some bills. he gave me money for this very reason. or should I say.” “We’ve been in here a little too long for a drug deal. Lift up your skirt. “Now.Sweet Silence 109 “You could have told me when we got to the office. “I need to leave and make sure Rico gets his cut or he’ll be suspicious.” Dario said. “That’s all right. Of course it didn’t. “Sixty do it?” “Yup.
“Sorcha.110 Melinda Barron “Sorcha. Diego?” “Yes. why don’t you just dump me?” “Don’t think so.” “Family? I’m not…” “Oh. We’re perfect together.” “But you’re not. Dario saw it right away. You and I were made for each other.” “If you say so. you have punishments coming for the sarcasm Sunday night. trying to beat the crap out of me. Welcome to the family. Don’t bother denying it. He needs a sub who challenges him like you do. I’ve never found a sub who would talk back to me.” “That’s because you have a nasty reputation. shooting a wicked grin at Sorcha. But you’re racking up punishments.” . “Lamenting your bad behavior?” “You’re partly to blame. the moaning without permission. Let’s see. You and my brother are a perfect fit. “She doesn’t know it yet. please. you still owe me twentyfive minutes in the chair.” She sat down on the bed and was surprised when he knelt in front of her. In more ways than one. don’t you. Sorcha. You’re way too much fun for that. Plus. a pleasure. I do. are you?” “No.” “If I’m so bad. And you live up to it. OK? I’d like to be the best man. but I’m never letting her go. Well. maybe at first.” “Wait to get married until I’m back in Albuquerque.” ***** “You’re being awfully quiet.” Diego said. the second orgasm.” Diego pushed open the hotel room door and ushered her inside. They’re all too nervous around me. They’re afraid of you. and now.
You knew I wouldn’t let it pass.” “Not Master. massaging his shoulders. pushing himself into her wetness seconds after he was sheathed. His strokes were slow and even.” “I wasn’t thinking when I did that. Not this time.” He groaned and reached for a condom. sending tendrils of painful pleasure through her body. He set towels and the lube on the nightstand. Who am I?” “Diego. It doesn’t have to be right away. He released her nipple and sought out the other one. you weren’t. melding their mouths together and invading her mouth with his tongue. “Yes. her hands stroking his back. “My Sorcha.” he whispered into her ear.Sweet Silence 111 “No. Diego pushed her back onto the bed. “Mine. When he returned he was naked. sucking it just as greedily as he had the first. falling down and capturing a nipple in his mouth. Dario mentioned a wedding and you didn’t dissuade him. we’ve talked about being together. Master. yes. I want to marry you. oh yes.” He walked to the bathroom and she quickly shed her clothing. After a few minutes. They kissed frantically. then turned and took Sorcha into his arms. “Get undressed. but not about married. but you did it anyway. Sorcha nodded. She wrapped her legs around him.” They stared into each other’s eyes. But yes.” . their lips wandering over each other’s until they both gasped. and she remembered it hadn’t been that long since he’d come. Besides. She relaxed under him. I didn’t.” “No. keep you by my side always. He sucked greedily as Sorcha wiggled under him. If you were you never would have chained me to a wall. marveling at the way he felt inside her. His teeth played around the edges. He’d probably last a good while.

I can’t. trailing his teeth along her collarbone before moving to the other side and repeat his motions. don’t take it away. it send wave after wave of bliss through her body. Sorcha?” “You know. It’s OK to like nasty things.” “Not hardly. the movements not causing enough friction to make her come.” “You do?” His teasing tone was a new side to him and it made her smile. Instead.” “Diego. “Incredible.” “Iwantyoutofuckmeintheass. so good. Trust me on that. “Yes. I was just wondering if I was I going to be punished for that moan. Come back. “What?” He rose up and stopped his movements. “Tell me. Please. but I want you inside me.” She shivered.” . Sorcha growled deep in her throat.” “You like that?” “You have no idea. She shivered and moaned and burst into laughter. “Are you laughing at me?” “No.” “You can.” “Don’t you like this?” He teased her clit with the ring again.” He lifted her so her ass rested on his thighs.” She blinked at him coquettishly. then slid his cock inside her slit.” He did it again and again. You have to learn to ask for it.” He pulled out of her and sat up on his knees. “Fuck me. He repeated the movement and she thrust up at him. Please more. “More. “Where do you want me to fuck you. “Oh. the ring sliding across her clit.
He took several pillows from the other bed and moved them to the center of the one they were on. good. Sorcha. “Come. and Sorcha came. When he came back he was sliding a new one over his cock. This time I want to watch your face while I take your ass. She tried to move to take more of him but his free hand stilled her as his thumb continued to circle her clit.she swallowed hard before finishing -. Her legs were splayed wide and he pushed his thumb against her clit.” . You’ll get it all. “All you had to do was ask. So good. Let me control my penetration. I can’t. her hips shooting off the bed as he continued to caress her until her movements stilled.” He pushed her clit down into her body.” He stood and pulled off the condom. “Ah. “Put your hips here. Sorcha.Sweet Silence 113 His laughter filled the room.” She came again. and slid in so he could easily penetrate her. walking to the bathroom.” She moved to roll over and he stopped her. Easy. her body tightening so much she thought she might explode. We’re Diego and Sorcha.” “I want you to fuck me” -. come for me. Very slowly. covering them with towels. “Easy. Come at will. ah. Oh. “In my ass. Come as many times as you can. “No. Sorcha?” He pushed deeper and she groaned. He leaned down and kissed her gently.“in the ass. screaming his name as his cock slid into her ass. Right now. Relax. pulling her bottom against thighs. I want to mount you from the front.” He stroked her clit and Sorcha came. “Where’s my cock.” The pressure on her clit was almost painful as Diego pushed his cock further into her. we’re not the Master and his toy. “Say it slowly.” He positioned the pillows under her hips.
” She felt his body go flush with her own.” “When’s the lease up on your apartment?” “Two months from now.” “But I like slutty little women. Why?” “Because it’s a shame to pay rent when you won’t be there anymore. “Here I come. “More. She lifted her fingers to her mouth. and put her free hand on her clit. Show me you like my dick in your ass. as he bent down and gave her a harsh kiss. yeah! Shit!” His pounding increased. watching Diego’s face as he fastened his gaze on her pussy. “Finger that clit. Fuck yourself. I wish you’d have let me in on this secret earlier.” She circled the aching bud. He groaned deeply and said. flying over the edge with him. pushing her head back into the bed and forcing his tongue into her mouth. Especially when they’re mine. She pulled them out. “Fuck.” He grabbed both of her ankles and pushed her legs apart. “Sorcha?” “Yes. I was worried about you not liking it. Diego. tasted her cream.114 Melinda Barron “My kinky little girl. Be nasty for me. He released her legs and their hands clawed at each other.” . pounding into her harder and harder.” Sorcha increased the motion on her clit. “I was worried you’d think I was a slut.” She bent enough to insert two fingers into her pussy. Their labored breathing was almost in sync as he pulled from her and collapsed next to her. his cock buried deep inside her anus. sucked them into her mouth. Not every woman does. sawing them in and out as Diego rode her.

She stood and smiled at him. Take one of the tables in the middle.” . Visitors were allowed to touch. as in hugging and holding hands. Maybe.” She moved into the room. “Sorcha?” Tony’s voice was full of wonder. and they’d searched her bags. but nothing else. primo. She knew her Aunt Marta had not visited Tony in some time. The prison was minimum security. “You get used to it. ¿Y tú? ¿Cuáles son usted que hace aquí?” “I’m fine. the guards had checked her ID. The guard standing near it just stared at her. Don’t worry.Sweet Silence 115 Chapter Twelve Sorcha bit her thumbnail. just maybe. They’d patted down her pockets and ushered her inside. and the visiting room held large tables. you’ll be fine. if this worked she could get Ward to look into cutting his sentence. And I’m here to see you. of course. She sat down at an empty table and watched the visitors talk with their guests. “Hola. And locked. When she’d arrived. and she wondered how lonely he felt.

She might just choose a big city that’s nearby. and there were circles under his eyes. “Is that a fact?” “Yes. trying to come to grips with the differences between the robust. but the guards said you had to eat them here.” “I’ll try and come back. “Even my mother quit coming. Not that I blame her.” “Maybe so. “Ten more minutes. “I’ll give you a little extra time. Tony had lost weight. She jumped slightly when a guard appeared at the table. Thanks. they’re not homemade. Sorcha stared at him.” He snorted and sat down.” She pushed the book toward him. “What he means to say is I get no visitors.116 Melinda Barron “Right. You can tell me how you like this book.” He walked off and Tony sighed. and then another one. There was a sparkle that hadn’t been there earlier. And I brought some cookies.” “Very true. like Albuquerque. “Do you?” . She was glad her cousin was smart.” The guard took a cookie. Some mystery novels I thought you might enjoy.” Sorcha sat down opposite him and gave him a tight smile. Sorry.” “Are you kidding me? This is fantastic. Change her name. lie low. handsome cousin she’d known and the man sitting across from her.” Tony nodded and held up the bag of cookies in offering.” Tony fastened his gaze on hers. She wants to move somewhere to start a new life so no one could find her. I don’t know this author. “Don’t mind if I do. It’s about a woman whose husband is killed and she has to try and rebuild her life.” He stuffed a cookie into his mouth. Morales doesn’t get many visitors. “I brought you some books. She reached into her purse. then another.
there was little chance he would see her if they went to different stores and theaters. Or I’ll be looking him up when I get out. smiling when Tony put several of them in his pocket. The lure of easy money. . I have a parole hearing soon. Either that. They’d decided on the books. hoping Tony would realize what she was talking about.” “He’d better. “We’ll see if I make it to my cell with these. Janice Monroe.” “Tony. all on the orders of Dustin Jaymes. And he had. This is my fault. Don’t worry about not coming. where Jaymes lived. She’s a new one. If she lived far away from Jaymes.” “Janice Monroe. I’ll try to…” “No. And she had the evidence to prove it. Besides. but a good one. fighting back tears. Sorcha. He’ll protect me.” ***** Sorcha felt drained as she drove back to the hotel. or she was very smart. Last night. but she knew her visit had affected him more than he wanted to let on. Writing can be dangerous. I have a friend who’s helping me. Maybe this time they’ll let me out.” She took a cookie and bit into it. Be careful. immediately. she and Diego had decided it would be too risky for her to take written information into the prison. She parked and sat in the truck. Tony had tried to put on a brave face. He’d picked up on the information she was seeking so quickly. I’ll have to pick one of hers up for me. “Janice Monroe.” “Well. Her husband had killed a private prison guard and been killed himself. Sorcha thought she took a big chance going back to Albuquerque.Sweet Silence 117 He picked it up and nodded.
” He closed the phone and nodded. Master. How’s your cousin?” “Lonely. where Jaymes might not ever think of looking for her. closing the door behind her. I feel so bad. How does that sound?” “Great.” “I understand. “No. . Maybe Janice Monroe had been smart to hide close to the danger. “The book thing worked?” “Yes. “I’m not sure.” “What did he tell you?” “Janice Monroe. his cell phone at his ear and a frown on his face. He gestured for her to come inside and she did so. Ward. we can put in a good word. Can’t we try to help him?” “We’ll see. mi juguete? Sore from the good pounding I gave it?” Sorcha laughed nervously. I’ll call you back in a little while. She just got here.” “Good. “Sorcha and I are thinking about visiting my Aunt Janice in Albuquerque tomorrow.” “Smart guy. Depressed.” He paced the room and barked out Ward’s name. “How’s your tight little bottom. She’s living in Albuquerque. but he’s trying to help now. He deserves payment for helping us.” “He did a crime. Will you be around? That’s right.118 Melinda Barron Although Sorcha doubted a man like Jaymes did his own shopping. Since he’s up for parole soon.” Diego pulled out his cell phone and hit a few buttons. It feels wonderful. The door to the hotel room opened and Diego appeared.
“An aunt in Albuquerque?” “Phones can be bugged. You know the one. Will you come with me?” “Sure.” “If he’s related to you. I gave him the first name there. the woman’s full name isn’t in one place for them to steal.Sweet Silence 119 Albuquerque. he typed in the message: “Meet us at the restaurant on Monroe Street.” “You’ll like him.” He sent it without signing it and closed the laptop down. When it was connected.” He hung up without saying good-bye. Sorcha sat down beside him on the bed as he powered it up and logged into a wireless network.” ***** Diego took the back roads.” He pulled out a case and hooked up a laptop. well. I’ll e-mail you the time and place.” “And e-mails can be stolen. and will give the last name in e-mail. They stopped at the small town on I-40 to walk a bit and stock up on sodas and snack foods. Great.” “Me. Yeah.” “That’s right. I want to get home.” “I thought so.” “Good idea. Hopefully. if something does happen. heading up through Alamogordo and Vaughn before turning toward Clines Corners. I have no doubt of that. “Let’s go. This time I’ll even go inside and meet him. . We should be in Santa Fe by six tonight and you can confirm whether or not you’ll be there. I want to come back and visit Tony some more. too. OK.
I’ll make you swallow me in front of the construction workers. Diego pulled left onto the two-lane highway. Can’t we stay here a little bit longer?” “Whiner.” “You wouldn’t. “Told you we should have gone to Albuquerque. They were about twenty miles from joining I-25 when Diego said.” “Who do you belong to?” “You.” “Yes.” Her words were soft. is that your Master is a very horny man. Look. “I’m tired of being in the car. and no. my liege. and Sorcha hoped it was late enough at night that the workers would be gone. if you haven’t already.” “Yeah. “Screw this. Why don’t we just go to Albuquerque and stay at my place tonight?” “Because your place doesn’t have a dungeon.120 Melinda Barron When he announced it was time to get back on the road. They were doing construction on the road to widen it. “Fat chance.” “You’re kidding. She voiced her opinion to Diego and he snorted.” “Try me. “Diego. most desolate road in the nation. Besides. And I want to play tonight.” He pulled to a stop in a line of cars and she groaned. Sorcha groaned. we can’t. right?” He cocked his head at her. “The first thing you need to learn.” She climbed into the truck and opened a soda can. it’s only another hour.” “Watch it. on the longest.” .” His grin was evil and Sorcha clamped her mouth shut. Sir. They traded jokes for about forty-five minutes as they stopped and started and stopped and started.
” She made to turn around and he stopped her. “Diego?” “It’s OK.” His voice was low and even. “Where are you going? How do you know this leads to the highway?” “I don’t.” “But how can you be sure that --” “Just do it. Tell him we’re being followed.Sweet Silence 121 He cut off to the right onto a dirt road. Voice mail. The phone rang in her hands and she jumped. Dust clouded up around the truck. and they love back. “Hey.” “Good for you. But I’m sick of sitting and…shit. I’m not going to let anyone hurt you.” “When it asks to page him. then closed the phone and clutched it to her chest. baby. He winked at her and turned his gaze back at the road. The truck bounced on the uneven lane. and contained no anger. even Doms have mothers who love them.” She listened to the message and punched in the numbers. Take my cell phone and call Ward.” She punched the buttons. baby. Crap.” She nodded and gave him a tiny grin. “Who are the first two?” “The second one is work. The first one is my mother. .” He cut the truck around a small hole in the road. do it with a 9-1-1 after it. I promise.” “What? Did we get a flat?” “No. “The number?” “Speed dial three. we got a tail. “Don’t.” “I’m glad to hear it. Keep facing the front.
” Diego rattled off a number and Sorcha stared at him. grabbing the door and the plastic strap built into the frame. Diego clutched the wheel and turned to her. I’m turning around. “If they start shooting. Sorcha clutched the door as he floored the gas and turned the wheel sharply. but I don’t want to endanger someone. few and far between. not my sweet little juguete. He came with us. I memorized the plate then. keep your head down.” “Be careful. thinking I could find a road in here that would lead us past the construction.” Sorcha’s eyes widened. I’m sending units your way. We’re on our way. There are houses out here. true.122 Melinda Barron “Put him on speaker. The truck behind them tried to follow. a known associate of our friend. Diego. “How did you see that in all this dust?” “He was waiting for us at Clines Corners. I thought it looked weird for two guys to just be sitting there.” “Remember what I said. Diego took off like a bat out of hell as Sorcha tensed up. Run this plate. I left the highway so we could try and get away from the road construction. I’m not going to let them hurt you. We’ve got José Barton. . Do you know where it was you left the road?” “About ten miles from the Interstate. but ended up part way into the open field before it could turn around. the truck spinning as he went.” He slammed on the brakes and the truck fishtailed into the dirt and low-lying bushes.” “Diego? Where are you?” “We’ve got a tail.” “All right.” “Shooting? Diego.
O no permitiré que ellos te hagan daño. “Not far. “¡Chinga usted. As it was.” Dust clouded around the vehicles and Sorcha lifted her head. and then he let out a string of cuss words. “How far to the road?” Her voice shook and he took his hand off the wheel long enough to caress her shoulder for a few seconds. baby. When a loud crack sounded.” She saw him looking into the rear view mirror as the truck bounced along the road. “What are you doing?” “Throwing a wrench into his plan. and into Diego or herself. “I know you won’t. ustedes pequeños bastardos! ¿Como te atreves a amenazar a mi mujer?” If she hadn’t been so frightened. you motherfucker. He wants to chase me? Try doing it while I’m in reverse. she expected him to lose control.” He sounded relieved. frightened that a bullet would find its way inside the truck.” Diego said. Sorcha screamed. she was scared to death. Bend down. or for a tire to blow. “Motherfucker! Keep your head down!” Diego cut the truck right into the field. Too many cars.” He cut back toward the road and Sorcha clutched the seat. That’s it. “Yeah. weaving in and out through sparsely placed trees.” He slammed on the brakes again and threw the truck into reverse.” She lifted her frightened gaze to look at him.Sweet Silence 123 “Keep your hands and head down. Diego’s screaming at them about threatening his woman would have made her heart soar. baby.” “There it is. “How can you see him?” . shoot at us now. “Relax. Any second now. “What?” “Too many people.
“Ready. “I’m going to run straight for him. then onto its hood. Cut right when I say so and I’ll shoot at his tires.” He pulled his gun from his holster. and scooted across the seat. screaming out Diego’s name as he pushed the speed higher and higher.” “You’re going to shoot? No. praying the truck didn’t roll. “Come here.” “You ready?” She nodded. took off her seatbelt. It’s this or take it to the highway. “Got him! Idiot shot the truck instead of the wheels. “Can you hold the wheel?” “Are you kidding me?” She shook her head violently.” She choked out a laugh and took the wheel. “He’s coming. The sound of bullets filled the air and she whimpered when Diego slammed on the brakes. they turned to watch the other vehicle tumble to its side. Hold it steady.” As the truck slowed. Both trucks sat silently. too!” “Probably.124 Melinda Barron “I can make out an outline. like a big game of chicken. facing each other like boxers waiting for the bell. we’ll both be alive tomorrow for me to fuck your sweet ass.” “He’ll be shooting. Diego!” He set the gun on the space between them. “Cut right!” She turned sharply. He hit the button to lower the window. the bed hitting the ground and putting it at a weird angle.” “Don’t worry. then slammed on the brakes and turned the truck so it was facing the other vehicle. She kissed Diego’s cheek and took a deep breath.” Sorcha turned to the other truck. . baby.
” She nodded and he left the car at a run.” “I couldn’t wait anymore. We’ll do paperwork tomorrow. “You’re that mad?” “My truck. you’ll stay here until me or Ward comes to get you.” . I want a shower and a nice long nap. Stay in the truck. His woman. throwing her arms around him.” He’d sounded amused. then stopped. “I’ll kill him.” He caressed her cheek. She could hear screaming. Late. When she saw Diego heading toward her.Sweet Silence 125 The sound of sirens filled the air as Diego ejected the gun’s magazine and slammed another one in place. She watched them pull both men from the cab and stand them upright. but they’re here. He reached for his door handle. his gun clutched in his hand. crap. Look at the bullet holes in my truck. She was his woman. though. “The cavalry’s here.” He ran his fingers over the holes in the truck bed. and again heard him scream in Spanish about the fucker threatening his woman.” “Oh.” She couldn’t help but laugh. really? Well. “You’re lucky it wasn’t your head.” “Sounds good to me.” “Or yours. I call dibs on the shower first. she exited the truck and ran to him. then angry. Promise me that no matter what happens.” “Let’s go home. She smiled as she watched Ward stop Diego from slamming his fist into one of the men’s faces. “Are you sure you’re OK?” “Yes. He gathered her close. “I thought I told you to stay inside. Right now. and see men running toward the overturned truck. She turned to watch vehicles approach from the way they’d come and relief flooded her body.

sat up. over and over again. Sorcha groaned. her shoulders felt like she’d been put inside of a dryer and turned around and around and around. You’ve had some fun as just Sorcha. He’d kissed each one. or bounced against the steering wheel at the end. Who was he talking to? Ward? Or someone else? How would she feel if she walked into the kitchen . telling her he was sorry for putting her in danger. Or at least that’s what Sorcha thought it felt like. Diego had found several small bruises from where she’d been thrown against the door during a turn. read it. He’d dried her off and taken her to his bed where he’d gently loved her.Sweet Silence 127 Chapter Thirteen Low voices came from the kitchen. saw a collar resting under it. Put on your collar and come to breakfast. Her body ached. putting himself in every orifice in her body until she screamed with pleasure. Last night in the shower. She turned toward the nightstand and frowned at the sheet of paper sitting there. and laughed. It’s time for my juguete to return. She picked it up. and lay back down. Put on my collar? She could still hear voices coming from the kitchen.
or would they wonder if she was someone strange? She stood and picked up the clothes she’d dropped on the floor last night.” . She attached the collar around her neck. wasn’t a blouse. Either she wanted to be his juguete full time. She held it up and frowned. as her Master liked her to be. “Say hello to our guests. though. then gasped when she realized there were two slits cut in each side. they’re not here for an interview. Find them there. The blouse lying on top of it. but left her breasts behind the material. Hurry up. Finally. “I know you’re awake because I heard you moving around. They were dusty and sweaty and she put them back on the floor. stopping short at what she found. It tied up the middle and was made of sheer black material. There are clothes for you in the dungeon. and pointed to the table. lying on the table next to the leather skirt she’d worn the first day. Eric Neal and Angel Vega. Get dressed and come to the kitchen. she found another note from Diego sitting on the bathroom counter. then rushed across the hall. wondering who was going to see her half naked. “Mi juguete?” Diego’s voice sounded from the end of the hallway. Clothes? He called these items clothes? Her boots were there. She thought about the last few days and the pleasures she’d received. He hid a grin.” His footsteps faded away and she let out a heavy sigh. one for each breast to slide through. Where was her suitcase? She looked around and didn’t find it.128 Melinda Barron wearing a collar and it was someone else? Would this person know why she was wearing a collar. She slipped into the clothes. after several minutes of searching. And before you ask. Put them on. or she didn’t. She pulled on the boots and started toward the kitchen. Diego turned toward the door as she walked in.
A special grand jury is meeting right now.” Sorcha launched herself at Diego. “I know that. Damnit. in plenty of time for you to make the morning papers.” “The men who were chasing us?” “In the hospital. Both of them were wearing jeans and sweaters.” Diego said.” She felt exposed in her clothing.” . “But what about Tony?” She pushed back slightly. deep trouble.Sweet Silence 129 “Good morning. “He’s not talking to anyone else.” “But he helped. charged with murder. He caught her and hugged her close. banged up but still breathing. but they will be when they realize they’re in deep. “We brought food to celebrate.” “That doesn’t guarantee they’ll buy it from me. the ever efficient Ward had already found Janice Monroe when we were coming back to town. and conspiracy to commit murder. “Good morning. If it wasn’t for him. Jaymes should be in custody before the end of the day. we wouldn’t…” She closed her mouth when Diego held up a finger. Not talking.” “They will if they want it tomorrow morning. Give me time. She was on her way to Santa Fe at the same time we were. “Fantastic! My story?” “Ward said to tell you he’d talk to you tonight. But I can’t promise anything.” “Celebrate?” Sorcha turned to Diego. “What are we celebrating?” “Well.” Eric replied. and she had the tape. “I’m working on that.” Sorcha yelped. both of them laughing. baby. The only thing that would have set them off as a BDSM couple was the velvet choker that Angel wore around her neck.
But now that we have guests. “It’s perfect that Eric and Angel showed up. I was about to wake you up when I heard you. We’ve had a few hard days. At first. I haven’t forgotten. She didn’t want to be punished. it’s too good an opportunity to pass up.” “The phone rang?” “Almost an hour ago. Sir. we’re going to play.” . “Do you want to know what your punishment is?” “Yes. and there was the other little thing two nights ago?” Sorcha sucked in air as she remembered pounding her fists against Diego’s chest.” “Good. I thought about a good flogging. But she knew that was a separate thing.

She’d been good. and I thought about postponing it. I was thinking of other things when Eric called and said they were almost here. Sir. back to your punishment.” She yelped when he moved aside the skirt and smacked her bottom. “No. my liege. First. and a delicious-smelling casserole with eggs and chorizo. I decided one punishment would fit the crimes.” “Where is it?” “In the fridge.” Sorcha wanted to scream at him. But I thought. Now. She’d helped him when men intent on killing them were chasing them.

He’d pushed the skirt up above her thighs. “You said no flogger. my liege. “Who do you belong to?” “You. Or two. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to use one. We’ll see how much she loves watching. She doesn’t like to admit it.” “Will you ever come again without my permission?” He pushed the flogger harder into her belly. I’m going to leave you hanging.” “No. I’m going to tease and torture you while we watch Eric and Angel have sex. I didn’t. so her private areas were totally on display.

Master.” He placed the handle inside her mouth.” Sorcha tensed. “What about the little hissy fit you threw the other night?” “I’m sorry. Master Eric. “Watch them. She wanted to look at him. Don’t let your eyes leave their bodies. When Angel lifted her own nipple to her mouth. he quickly stepped back and nodded to Eric.” “What about moaning?” “Never. Master. Diego moved to a table.

Apuro. but it will leave an impression on you. “Would you like to fuck?” “Yes.” “Suck those titties. Instead.” He moved back and held the flogger in front of her face. . This punishment will wipe your slate clean. Not without your permission. He pressed it hard against her. no matter what I say or do. she obeyed and kept her eyes trained on the couple in front of her.

Master. Keep playing.” Eric said.” Angel came again and Sorcha lifted her eyes to the ceiling. She turned her eyes back to the woman. It’s being forced to remain still and silent.” Sorcha’s breathing intensified as she watched Angel sit and spread her legs. “Sometimes torture is mental. who was taking a dildo from Eric and placing it at her pussy entrance. Do you want to come?” “Yes. Come as many times as you like. come for us. “Sit down and masturbate for Sorcha.” He tipped her mouth to his and kissed her.Sweet Silence 133 “Don’t forget the other one. Master. Angel’s fingers began to move faster and Sorcha thought she would die from the need. “You don’t want her to feel left out. “My beautiful Angel. Master.” Angel quickly obeyed and Eric stroked her hair. She screamed out another orgasm and Sorcha thought she would die from the need raging in her own body. “You thought I was going to physically torture you.

Understand?” “Yes. and if I do.” “I promise. “No. my liege. Diego. The sounds of flesh slapping against flesh filled the room. No. my liege. And I promise you the same thing. we’ll talk about it. Don’t ever. Apuro?’ “Fuck me. my liege. wanted to feel that ring hitting her G-spot again as he ground himself into her. You’ll watch. I promise.

When Eric came. Diego.
Diego continued to stroke his cock. please. I want to suck you. “Did you like that.” Sorcha fought against her bonds. begging him to fuck her harder.

He took out his cock and started to stroke it. baby?” “Yes. at least she could suck him. Would he come before she could get there? Would she be denied even that pleasure? When she was finally free. “I thought? Master?” He slid his hand up and down his shaft. “Eric? Will you undo my subbie?” Sorcha glanced at him. then slowly walked toward Sorcha.

Instead. taste his cum.Sweet Silence 135 hard Sorcha thought Angel might break in two. She wanted his cock. Now. She knelt in front of him. “Beg me. Each step was torture. When Eric’s thrusts had stopped. sitting back down on the table he’d sat on earlier. “Master.” “Maybe tomorrow. she stepped off the platform and hurried to Diego. he leaned in. He slowly undid her bonds and she wanted to scream at him to hurry. my liege. Diego still stood behind her. my liege. She knew she sounded like a petulant child. If she couldn’t have an orgasm.

It’ll be a hard day. “Learning is always a good thing. “Master?” “Scoot back. Sorry.” He helped her to stand and patted her hip. flattened her tongue.” “You’ll make it. It didn’t take long for Diego to go over the edge.” “Sure there is. He shot down her throat. his hands fisted in her hair. always making sure to lash her tongue around his balls when he was fully ensconced in her throat.” Eric held up his hand and Diego turned to him. but you’ll love tomorrow. coughing and bending over. “Does she give lessons?” Angel laughed and walked to Eric’s side. made her feel his need as deeply as she felt her own. She tipped her head back.” .” Sorcha moaned softly as she tilted her head and took him into her mouth. Needed him. she still wanted him.136 Melinda Barron “Please?” Excitement surged through her.

He’d been supportive today. “What do you have there?” “Well. find a smaller paper and work there. and that’s what it would feel like to her.
