Exclusive Excerpt from Love Times Five
by Lily G. Blunt
The moon shone low and bright in the now cloudless, star-speckled sky. The earlier storm had passed, leaving a cool, clear evening.
The sudden urge to throw his head back and howl prompted Shaun to move away from the cabin towards the cover of the trees.
Everything around him was visible and not just because of the reflected light from the moon. Zach’s unusual heartbeat thrummed slow and steady. A rabbit scurried under a nearby bush. An owl flew low across the open grass leading down to the lake. All of Shaun’s senses were on high alert. The scent emanating from Zach, combined with traces of Colin and their many sex sessions, stiffened his cock. “Gonna fuck you so hard after this,” he declared to Zach.
“Oh yeah?” Zach’s voice was rough.
“Yeah. Against a tree until you coat the bark with your cum.”
The blip in Zach’s heart rate gave Shaun the reassurance that his fantasy would be fulfilled that night.
Shaun didn’t need to check if they were being observed, but he glanced around anyway. In his current state, he would pick up on the scent or sounds made by someone watching them.
“We’re alone,” Zach confirmed.
The time was right.
Shaun stripped out of his clothes and draped them over a low-hanging branch, leaving only his shoes and socks on the still-wet grass beneath.
He stood naked beside Zach under the round moon. His body burned, inside and out. It itched. It stretched. The cool of the night air had no effect on his soaring temperature.
The wolf inside him paced, ready to pounce in an instant.
“Okay, let’s do this,” Shaun said to himself as much as to Zach.
He shook his head and shoulders, sending a violent ripple over his skin. A snarl erupted from his elongated muzzle. His hands fell towards the forest floor, and by the time he landed, Shaun’s paws and claws dug into the damp earth. The bone-cracking pain fizzled out in a flash.
Shaun felt free and so alive.
When he lifted his head this time, a long mournful howl ripped out of his throat and echoed through the forest.
No reply came.
The wolf sniffed the air, and the earthy woodland odour bombarded his nostrils. Zach’s heady fragrance was now intoxicating. Lust curled deep inside of Shaun, and the fur on his back stood on end.
The animal pawed the ground, eager to stretch its legs. He wanted to fuck, but he needed to run more.
The wolf growled low in his throat.
Zach raced past in a flash, and Shaun’s heart quickened. He set off after him. His fluid strides lengthened, and his paws pounded the earth in time with his heartbeat.
Running wild, both creatures dodged low branches and exposed tree roots. Twigs snapped underfoot and leaves fluttered away.
The full moon glowered above them.
The breeze rushed past the fur on his face.
Their race—or chase—was exhilarating. Exciting. Arousing.
Wolf and vampire ran and ran and ran, neither of them tiring.
