“Well, I wouldn’t go so far as to say that, Garth,” she said, smiling sweetly.
The breakfast he’d made was great, as usual, but now they had to figure out what they were going to do to keep their girl safe while she was at work. Both he and Kane didn’t think that whoever was after her would make any attempts while she was at the paper, but it was better to be safe than sorry. After rinsing and stacking their dishes in the dishwasher, they all went into the living room.
“I need to get going pretty soon, guys, so which one of you is coming to the office with me?” Just like that, no quarrel, no argument, just acceptance.
“Why are you giving in so easily, baby? What do you have up your sleeve?” Kane asked.
“I made a promise to Joe and Helen that I would let you two protect me, and I’ll listen to whatever you say regarding my safety. As much as it’s going to irritate the shit out of me, I never go back on a promise. But you have to let me do my job at work. There’s a lot to do, and I can’t have either of you trying to stop me from doing something. At work, I’m the new boss. I have to earn these people’s respect, and if you’re coddling me all the time, that will never happen.”

She was a fierce one that was for sure. When they’d been together ten years ago, he’d only caught glimpses of the woman she was now. Being away had given her time to spread her wings and come into her own as a woman, and boy, did she ever.
“We’re not going to come into the office with you today, angel eyes. Turk is going to drive you there and pick you up and keep an eye on the people coming and going from the front, but we are both very protective of you right now, and if we were to go inside with you, we’d be questioning every employee in regards to last night, and that’s not necessary at this point. There may come a time, however, when it might become necessary. You’ve just come back into my life, and there is no fucking way you’re getting away again.”
Kane pulled her into his arms and lowered his mouth to hers. The moment their lips touched, fireworks exploded in his brain, and his cock was instantly rock-hard. Forcing his tongue between her lips, he parted them, possessing her completely. He was laying claim to her mouth, making damn sure she knew who she belonged to. His fingers grasped the neckline of the oversized T-shirt, and in one movement, he ripped it apart, bearing her completely to his gaze.
Turk moved in behind her the moment the T-shirt was gone. His rock-hard body felt incredible against her.
“You’re beautiful,” Kane said quietly.
Stephanie was surprised at the thrill it gave her to know that she was able to excite these two powerful men. They made her feel desirable and wanted like never before.
Wrapping one of his arms around her from behind, Turk pulled her back against him, and with the other, he gently ran his hand down the side of her breast before cupping it and offering it to Kane.
Stephanie’s body arched automatically toward him as he swooped in and drew her hardened nipple into his mouth. She fisted handfuls of his hair in response to the overpowering need they were building in her.
Biting down gently on her nipple, he was pleased when she moaned in ecstasy before sighing as he slowly ran his tongue between her breasts.
“Please, Kane, it’s been so long. I want you and Garth to show me how to please you both.” Her voice was soft and she almost whispered her plea.
Kane cupped her breasts, squeezing them together before again taking one extended nipple between his teeth, only this time his bite was a little harder than before, bringing a loud gasp from her. While Kane continued his attention to her breasts, Turk began nuzzling his mouth down her neck and across the top of her shoulder, leaving gooseflesh in his wake. Her neck was one of the most sensitive spots on her body, it seemed, because the more attention he paid to it, the wetter she became.

The anticipation building within her mind was exquisite. She’d always loved that about Kane, the way he would spend so much time touching and tasting her before fucking her senseless. A loud moan spilled from her lips when Kane knelt in front of her, kissing her stomach and spreading her stance wide so he could taste her sweet juices.
“Mmm, you smell delicious, angel eyes, and you’re so wet for us. How long has it been since you’ve had sex, baby? It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?”
“Yes,” she answered him breathlessly, “there hasn’t been anyone since you.”
Both men stopped immediately, bringing a howl of frustration from Stephanie.
Standing again in front of her, Kane took her chin in between his thumb and forefinger and brought her face up to look at him.
“Are you telling me you haven’t had sex with any other man in ten years?” Kane’s voice seemed harsher than normal.
Feeling somewhat exposed, and being the only one naked, Stephanie tried to step out from between them, but neither man would allow it.
“Sweetness, Kane asked you a question, and since you know of our rules in the house, I suggest you answer him, or we may have to spank that naked ass again.” Turk rubbed his hands up and down her arms, trying to calm her as much as possible.
Stephanie’s mouth had gone dry, so when she tried to swallow, it sounded very loud to her ears. She hadn’t meant to let that little bit of information out so soon, but now that it was, she supposed she’d have to deal with it.
“When I left here, Kane, I was angry and hurt, so men were not a high priority for quite some time. Then my career took off, and I was so swamped at work I didn’t have time to date, let alone get to know someone well enough to let them fuck me. About four years ago, when I heard you’d bought into Club Kinsey, I started to do some research. I wanted to find out what was so appealing about the lifestyle. I talked one of the local clubs into allowing me to come and observe for a few nights. It took them awhile, and I had to agree that I wouldn’t write a story about them, but the owner introduced me to this great Dom/sub couple, Donavan and Megan. The answered all my questions and allowed me to watch the scenes they did. They became great friends and eventually sponsored my membership in the club.”
Kane could feel his anger rising as she told her story. Why the fuck did she go to another Dom? He should have been the one to introduce her to the lifestyle, not some fucking strangers.
“I only managed to go to the club a handful of times because my work was so hectic, but when I did, I enjoyed myself, but only to a point. I couldn’t let myself go completely with any Dom. Donavan and Meg introduced me to many different Doms, but I just couldn’t do it.” Hanging her head as if ashamed of her inability to lose herself to someone, she quickly peeked up when Kane took a step away and stood back with his arms crossed over his massive chest.
“Do you know why you couldn’t let go with another Dom, angel eyes?” he asked her.
Turk was still holding her arms, so she just leaned back against him, as if in dire need of his closeness.
“No, I don’t, Kane. I’ll try really hard with you, I just don’t know. It feels so different with you and Garth. It’s like I’m supposed to be here.”
Stephanie could feel Turk’s hardness against her lower back and wanted so bad to feel it inside her.
Kane took another few steps away from her and stopped.
“Come here, Stephanie,” he said in a voice that she was sure she could feel against her wet pussy. Turk dropped his hands, and she walked to stand in front of Kane.
“That is why you couldn’t let go, angel eyes,” he said and stroked one of his hands along her jaw. “You belong to me. You’ve always belonged to me, and now you belong to Turk as well. Your mind wouldn’t allow you to accept another Dom.” Kane watched her eyes widen and her mouth open, as if she was going to say something, and then she closed it again. Wrapping her arms around his waist, he wanted her to crawl inside him and stay there, safe and right next to his heart.
“Can I ask you a question, Kane?” Steph looked up at him with those big dark-blue eyes.
“You can ask me anything, angel eyes.” He smiled down at her and kissed the tip of her nose.
“If I belong to you and Turk, does that mean that you belong to me as well?” Before he even had a chance to open his mouth, Turk answered for him.
“We are yours and yours alone, sweetness. We want you to be ours forever. The moment I laid eyes on you in the diner, I wanted to drown in you. I didn’t know who you were and hadn’t a clue until Kane mentioned you. Oh, he’s talked about you over the years. Fuck, he’s talked about you so much sometimes I started to think the boy was daft and living in a fantasy world. The way he described you was perfect.”
“You haven’t answered my question, Kane.” Stephanie stood patiently waiting for him, but she knew that he was scared. She had some things to make up to him still, but they had a lifetime for that.
“The day I met you, angel eyes, I belonged to you. I can’t tell you that I’ve been celibate for the last ten years, but I have been with only a handful of women, and most of that was at the club. I have loved you forever, it seems, but you have some punishments due to you, baby.”
Just as she was about to ask what for, her cell rang. Picking it up from the nightstand, she answered, still keeping her eyes on the two men in the room.
“Stephanie here, yeah…oh shit, I’ll be there in thirty minutes, and they better all still be there if they want to keep their jobs.” Hanging up, she picked up the clothes she was going to wear to work and kissed both Kane and Turk quickly on the lips, saying, “I’m really late, and I have a lineup of angry female employees waiting for me. I need to grab a quick shower before I head in.”
“I’ll wait for you downstairs, baby, and take you in. When you’re done tonight, I’ll pick you up, so don’t leave the building until I get you, okay?” Turk said as he headed out of the room.
Stopping in front of Kane, Steph smiled and said, “I’ve always loved you, Kane, and any punishment you give me, I have earned. I didn’t trust you ten years ago, and for that we both paid dearly. All I can do now is show you that I will always trust you, or if I have doubts, I will come to you or Turk with them.” Taking his hand, she kissed his palm and headed for her shower.
Entering the bathroom, she leaned against the closed door and sighed. Coming home had been the best idea she’d ever had. Hopefully, she, Kane, and Turk would be able to start a life together.
Pulling up in front of the paper, Steph quickly leaned over and gave Turk a kiss on the cheek. They’d already discussed, actually more like argued, on the drive there, about what time he’d be there to pick her up.
Since she was getting in later than expected, she wanted to stay later so she could go over anything she’d missed this morning. That idea didn’t sit well with Turk.
“You can stay until seven then I’ll come and get you and take you to the club for dinner with Kane and me. You can meet some of the new people in town and catch up with Ryder, Sam, and Dan. I’m sure they’ll be happy to see you after all this time.
She’d known the Kinsey triplets growing up but hadn’t had a whole lot to do with them until later in high school. She wasn’t in their league, and she was actually really glad for it. They were kind of the golden boys of Kinsey, and all the girls drooled over each one of them. It wasn’t until just before spring break of their senior year that she got to know all them of them really well.
* * * *
Years earlier the triplets had all been in various classes with her, and it seemed that each one of them was about to fail one class. If they did, it meant no graduation and no military for at least another year.
Mr. Gillette, their principal, called her and the triplets into the office the day before spring break was to start and told them that for the next month, including during spring break, Stephanie was to tutor each one in the subject they were failing. With Ryder, it was chemistry, for Dan, it was math, and for Sam, well, with Sam it was history, of all things. This surprised almost everyone that knew him because he was such a smart guy. Except for this one class, he was an almost straight-A student.
