Shaking her head she washed her face and then took many deep breaths before walking out of the bathroom and found her way to the front waiting room to see who was going to take her to Florida or if she was going to go alone.
Nathan was there when she came down the stairs. He blinked at her, and pushed up to his feet with a frown. “Olivia, what’s wrong?” he asked moving to her. He put his hand on her arm, sliding it down to take her hand in his, and pulled her toward an area away from the receptionist desk. “Talk to me, and no going around in circles in your head before you give me some modified, stunted answer.”
“Just the past rearing its ugly head once more.” She gave Nathan a sad watery smile and nodded. “Just lots of reminders. That’s all. Now, I’m ready to go. I need to ensure that everything is put to rights with my son’s grave. They won’t touch it until I’m there. The stone alone is worth more than my shop so they refuse to touch it.” The stone had gold, silver and other mineral veins in its heavy slab. She had ensured that her son had the best, no matter the cost to her.
“We aren’t going anywhere yet, we can’t get a flight out until morning. We need to wait on Jacobs anyway, unless there’s something you’re not telling me?” he said with narrowed eyes.
Heavy boots came down the stairs causing Nathan to turn. Michael was looking around, and when he spotted her he came right at her. He had a look on his face that spoke of an anger he was barely holding onto. “What the fuck did you say to him?” he demanded of her.
Nathan shifted to slip between her and the other man. “Michael, back off and calm down. Who are you talking about?”
“Jacobs. He just handed in his resignation, which I refused but he said he didn’t give a damn. He was done. He couldn’t handle it any more. He fucking looked broken, and I know you had something to do with it Olivia. So what the fuck did you say to him to do that?”
Of course it was her fault, it always was. It was her fault he left her so long ago. It was her fault, according to his parents, that he joined the Marines. All of it was her fault. She just shrugged. She refused to answer, she didn’t owe them answers, she didn’t owe any of them anything. Instead, for the first time in her life, she got it.
Sometimes walking out was easier. That’s why Lee left her ten years ago and ten minutes ago. It was easier. “I’m done,” was all she said before she pushed her way past the men and toward the door. If she was caught and killed, whatever, she was done. She was broken, it hadn’t been just Lee that had been hurt, it had been her as well. She was tired of taking the blame for everything, and more than that she was sick of being shown just how important she was to someone by them leaving her. Yep, she was done.
A hard hand caught her arm and spun her around. “Not until you tell me what the fuck you did.” It was Michael who’d caught her.
“Get your fucking hands off her.” She recognized that hard tone. Michael was wrenched away from her, and Lee put himself between her and his boss. Or maybe it was former boss if he’d actually resigned. “You have no right to talk to her like that, let alone touch her.”
“She’s the reason you’re quitting, so damn right I do. I want answers.”
“She’s the reason I’m even standing here at all, you asshole,” Lee said. “We have a history, one I’m not going to even get into, but the only reason I’m alive today after what those assholes did to me was her. The hope of one day coming back and apologizing to her for being an idiot, getting drunk, and fucking enlisting in the Corps. If not for her I’d have given up in that cave in the middle of fucking nowhere when they were slicing off bits of my skin for the hell of it. I’d have given up when they were having fun cooking my flesh in the hopes I’d scream and make their day. She is the only fucking reason I survived all those surgeries, all that physical therapy, and why I was able to get back out in the field. The hope that one day I’d fucking find the bloody words, and the balls to apologize to her. So don’t you ever fucking lay a hand on her. Because friend, or no friend I’ll fucking beat you down into a pile of bloody entrails and goo.”
She placed her hand on Lee’s back and then her forehead. It was too much, all of it. She was crying, a-freaking-gain, and knew that she would not be able to handle much more of this. “I just want to leave,” she whispered. “Can we please just leave?”
Turning to face her Ulysses gathered her in his arms, and stroked her back as he held her close. “Shh,” he whispered against her hair. “I’m sorry, Olivia,” he said. He kept rocking her back and forth as he whispered soft and soothing words to her in an attempt to calm her down. “We need to talk, little one. I know you don’t want to, but I need to tell you some things if you’ll listen. After that if you want to go without me to Florida I’ll let you.”

She leaned back against the man at her back and moaned. This was perfect. That was the moment when she gave in. She gave up to the feelings and simply felt. She felt the impressive erection the male at her back was sporting and felt the desire in the man before her by the way that his hands moved over her breasts and shoulders.
“Much better.” Nathan’s voice was at her back, his hands drifting up and down her sides lightly as she rocked against his cock. Which meant that it was Lee in front of her trailing his mouth slowly down from her breasts, and over her belly. He nibbled on her skin as he got ever closer to where she desperately needed at least one of them to touch her. Nathan’s hands slid up her ribcage to lift, and squeeze her breasts in a gentle massage.
“I’m trying, Sir,” she told Lee and felt Nathan rubbing himself against her ass. Oh she loved it as well. She felt Nathan’s hands move to her breasts again and squeezing her nipples once more. Nathan had no idea how much she loved having her nipples pinched and squeezed. “Thank you, please Sir, again,” she begged.
Pressing his mouth to her neck he bit her lightly as he tweaked her nipples, tugging and giving them a small twist. In front of her Lee was brushing kisses so close to her pussy she could feel the heat of his every breath teasing her engorged clit. Feeling something brushing over her mound it took her a moment to realize it was his nose, and he was breathing in her scent. Something he’d done every single time right before he’d gone down on her.
She hadn’t been surprised then when Lee lifted her leg and put it up over his shoulder. This was a favorite position of his and one she was more than willing to give in to. Her hands remained behind her back and she leaned against Nathan. With the blindfold on she simply relied on her other senses, her sense of hearing, smell, taste and touch. She moaned then when Lee’s mouth finally closed over her pussy.
His tongue slid slowly over her folds. She was so wet already, both from Nathan’s tricky fingers, and from her need. But having him licking her only made her more turned on. His mouth settled over her clit to suckle while he pushed two fingers deep into her pussy. He began to pump them in and out slowly.
Behind her Nathan moved slightly, his hands sliding over her skin until he bent her forward just a little. One hand on her shoulder kept her from falling over. When his hand landed on her ass on a firm slap she jolted. Between the two men and their holds on her she barely moved though.
With one leg over Lee’s shoulder and her body only being held up by Nathan’s body she cried out in need. She loved the feelings that he was giving her, the way that it felt having Lee’s fingers inside of her body and then his mouth on her clit had her sobbing. Her hands shook behind her, she was barely holding herself together and keeping the stance she knew Lee wanted her to be in right then. With her hands behind her back and her body wide open for him and his every touch.
Tilting his head slightly Lee’s teeth scraped her clit lightly while Nathan slapped her ass again. She felt Lee pressing another finger into her pussy, stretching her more, and driving her higher. If she’d had the balance she’d likely have been up on her toes from the sensations pouring through her body.
“She’s close,” Nathan said behind her.
Lee only hummed, the vibrations stroking over her clit.
“Please,” she whispered as the men worked her body fiercely. “May I come?” She knew Lee, knew that she couldn’t come without his permission and she was so close. She was ready to let go and fly but only when he allowed her to. She was breathing methodically, in a way that Lee had taught her so very long ago, and it was the only thing that kept her from orgasming right then and there.
Nathan pulled her back to his chest again, his hands sliding over her breasts to cup them. His fingers pinched her nipples hard. She felt a small movement from Lee. “Come now, Olivia,” Nathan said in her ear as he tugged on her nipples.
Olivia then let go. She allowed herself to orgasm and the scream that tore free from her lips told them just how long she had waited for that moment. She felt the utter bliss as it rushed through her veins, the pure pleasure that smacked every single pleasure center in her brain and made it stand up and take notice. She loved every single second of that rippling orgasm that filled her.
