Overtime Has Its Benefits
Nat moved slowly up the last flight of stairs to her apartment. The past
night's shift had been brutal, at one point they'd had bodies stacked in
the hallway because there was not enough space in the cold room to store
them. Several multi-vehicle accidents and what seemed like a sudden
shooting spree by the local criminal element that combined with a full moon
to make Nat wonder why she'd ever gotten into this line of work. She'd
ended up being on duty for nearly sixteen hours, and her entire body felt
like it was in rebellion.
Even worse, in some respects, was that Nat had planned to have a movie
night with Nick. 'Back when I was suppose to get off work at midnight!'
she thought grumpily. She looked forward to such times, enjoying the
bittersweet time spent cuddled next to Nick while some wonderful old movie
played on the VCR. Her soul craved the comfort she found in his arms, even
as she longed for more, much more, intimacy. While her mind understood
Nick's reasons for keeping a certain distance between them, her heart ached
at the imposed restrictions. There had been so many deliveries Nat hadn't
even been able to take the time to call him herself.
Arriving at the door to her apartment, Nat fumbled briefly with her keys.
Cursing softly under her breath, she missed hearing the soft click of the
lock opening and jumped slightly as the door opened. Her surprise only
increased as she saw the figure standing in the doorway. "Nick! What are
you doing here?" She asked, even as her heart fluttered with desire.
Nick could see the exhaustion on Nat's face as he reached out and took her
briefcase and medical bag from her. "After Grace called and explained what
was going on tonight, I thought that you might be in need of some
cosseting." He smiled at her. "I hope you don't mind?"
Nat looked into his blue eyes, "Cosseting, I think I like the sound of that."
Nick sat the items he'd taken from her on a nearby table and put his arm
around her. "You always seem to be there for me when I need a little extra
attention. I think you are way overdue to have some of that returned." He
looked into Nat's face, the face that filled his dreams as well as his
waking hours. He could feel her tiredness as she leaned into him. Together
they went into the living room and he guided her over to the couch.
Seating her there, Nick disappeared into the kitchen and returned with a
tray containing several slices of cheese, some fruit and a small glass of
wine. "I figured you didn't get a chance to eat much tonight and that
you're most likely too tired to want anything heavy." He said, sitting the
tray within easy reach of Nat.
Nat gave him a dazzling smile of gratitude. "This looks wonderful!" She
said as she selected a slice of sharp cheddar and a wedge of apple.
As she ate, Nick knelt beside the couch and gently slipped off her shoes,
softly massaging each foot as he did so. He heard Nat sigh with
contentment. Nick saw that Nat had finished the food. Standing he held out
his hand to her. "Come on, I think that to be properly 'cosseted' you need
a lot more than just a foot massage." He said.
'I know what would make me feel completely cosseted.' Nat thought,
imagining what it would be like to have Nick make love to her. Aloud, she
said, "Oh, what did you have in mind?" She allowed Nick to help her to her
feet and lead her towards her bedroom.
Nick hesitated briefly at the doorway to the room as he imagined what it
would be like to lie in the bed with Nat in his arms, her body freely
opened to his. He could feel his body respond to just the thought and was
glad that he'd feed well before Nat had arrived. His beast was much easier
to control when he wasn't hungry. "Why don't you go slip into something
loose and when you come back I'll give you a nice back rub. Nick said.
Nat nodded and taking a long satin sleep shirt from her closet went into
the bathroom. When she returned, Nick had turned down the bed, lowered the
lights, and lit several candles as well as some soothing incense. He'd
arranged pillows so that she could lie in comfort on her stomach. Nat
stretched out in the bed, wincing slightly as her muscles twinged with
discomfort. She felt Nick's hands moving along her back, firmly but gently
kneading the tension and stiffness out of her muscles.
"Ummm, that feels wonderful, Nick. I think I must have lifted a couple of
tons tonight." Nat said as the tension in her back and shoulders abated.
She realized that it was being replaced by a different sort of tension,
however, and after several minutes decided to take a chance. "You know,
Nick," she said in a soft caressing voice, "I bet if you used some of my
body oil, this would feel even better."
Nick had all but lost himself in the feel of Nat's body under his hands.
He could easily tell that she was nude beneath the sleep shirt, and the
thought was causing him some slight discomfort. This discomfort only
increased at Nat's words. "Nat," he said, choosing his words carefully, "in
order to do that, you'd have to take off the sleep shirt." Nick held his
breath, part of him wanting her to agree while another part worried that
he'd be unable to control himself.
Nat turned her head and looked at him with desire filled eyes. "Yes, I
suppose I would. You wouldn't mind too much, would you?" She asked.
Nick's discomfort was now bordering on pain. "I...I wouldn't mind." He
managed to say. His mouth suddenly felt dry and he could swear that his
heart gave an extra thump in his chest. He sat back to allow Nat to get up.
Nat rolled over on her back, then swung her legs over the edge of the bed,
and stood up. Slowly she reached down and taking the hem of the sleep
shirt in her hands pulled it off over her head. While it was still
covering her face, she smiled as she heard Nick gasp slightly. With the
shirt off, she noticed that he had an odd expression on his face. "Nick?
Are you okay?" Nat chuckled inwardly as she had a pretty good idea of what
the problem was. It was rather hard to miss the noticeable bulge in Nick's
Nick didn't know what to do. He desperately needed to get the tight jeans
he was wearing off. He looked at Nat with pleading eyes. "Nat, I'm not
sure this is such a good idea." He was nearly trembling with the effort it
was taking to not rip of his own clothes, grab her and ravish every inch of
Nat leaned toward him, her full breasts now only inches from his face. "I
think it's a wonderful idea, and I also think you have far too many clothes
on." She said while reaching for the buttons on his shirt.
Her scent filling his head, Nick moaned and caught Nat's hands in his.
"Nat, you know what I am. You know how dangerous what you're proposing can
be." He tried to reason with her.
"I know all that, Nick. I also know that if you don't make love to me, I
will personally stake you!" Nat said. "I love you and I'm not afraid of
ANYTHING that might happen." She felt tears spring to her eyes. "Please,
Nick," she said softly, "love me."
Nick looked into her eyes and knew that he couldn't deny her, or what he
felt for her anymore.
He stood and after kissing her softly, removed his own clothes. Pulling
her against his nude body, he groaned with pleasure as her warmth caressed
him. His mouth found hers and he kissed her again, this time a kiss full
of passion and need. At the same time, his hands glided along her body.
Nat met his kiss with an equal passion, her tongue darting into his mouth,
sensuously caressing his. She slid her tongue against his fangs until they
descended and she heard Nick growl deep in his chest. All the time, she
felt Nick's hands as they moved along the curves of her body. Each touch
seemed to send sparks of electricity through her and she could feel her
juices flowing. She broke the kiss, needing air and gasped as Nick's lips
began to explore the soft skin of her throat and then moved on down to her
When he pulled one nipple into his mouth, his sharp fangs nipping lightly
at the sensitive skin, she cried out with the intense pleasure that shot
through her body. The sensations that flowed through her as he suckled and
licked at first one nipple, then the other made her legs tremble. She
could feel her breath coming in short gasps as Nick's skilled hands and
mouth filled her with almost overwhelming desire.
She didn't resist as Nick pushed her down onto the bed. She did get a good
look at him, just before he joined her. 'Oh, Lambert, THAT is well worth
having waited all this time!' She thought mischievously, even as her core
throbbed with her need to feel Nick deep inside her.
Any further semi-rational thought became impossible as Nick's hands and
mouth again worked their magic on her.
Nick was in a near frenzy of need as he at last explored Nat's body. His
delight in her was increased by how eagerly she met his passion with her
own. The few small drops of blood that he'd tasted when his fangs had
nibbled at her breasts, had told him that she had no fear of him and of her
love for him. He ached to know that love in its fullest measure.
He saw her eyes widen slightly and the mysterious smile that passed over
her face as she looked at his nude form. When he joined her on the bed,
her own desire seemed to have doubled.
His lips moved down her belly to the soft inner part of her thighs. He
could smell her arousal and his own manhood was throbbing with the need for
Nat parted her legs, wanting to feel Nick in her. "Nick, please, I need
you, NOW!" She cried out. She sighed with contentment as she felt his cool
hardness slip easily into her warm opening. Her heart pounded with
happiness as she both heard Nick's sigh of delight as he entered her and
saw the look of tender love and caring on his face.
For several moments they lay still, basking in the sensation. Nick
relished the feel of her hot slickness surrounding him, while Nat delighted
in his cool hardness filling her completely. Finally, Nick began to move
slowly in her. The feel of her welcoming moistness against his turgid
member sent shivers of ecstasy through him.
Nat raised her hips, to insure that she could take all of him as deeply as
possible and met his thrusts with her own. Together they gradually
increased the force and tempo. Nat could feel the tension in her womb grow
until at last, it burst into a cascade of gratification that washed over
her and caused her to cry out Nick's name. She could feel her entire body
shaking with the force of her orgasm and she relished the sensations.
Nat gasped when, at the same moment, she felt the sharpness of Nick's fangs
at her throat. The room seemed to fade as Nick's emotions, his fears, his
hopes, and above all his love were suddenly a part of her essence, too.
Tears filled her eyes as, thanks to the blood link they now had, his love
for her filled her mind.
Nick felt Nat's orgasm and sought his own release. As his fangs broke the
skin of her throat and her blood filled his mouth, he knew, as she did,
that this was their destiny. Her strength, her faith, and her love flowed
into him just as his innermost thoughts and feelings were now a part of
her. Her love for him warmed him and gave him the comfort that he'd craved
for so long.
He sensed their souls joining in a blaze of light that dimmed the sun, yet
only soothed instead of burning. Nick knew that from this moment on, he
would never again know the loneliness that had been his main companion for
His beast was sated after only a few small swallows and Nick withdrew his
fangs from Nat's neck. The strong steady sound of her heartbeat in his
ears was, perhaps, the loveliest sound he'd ever known. Shifting to lie
beside her, his arms still embracing her, Nick looked into her joy filled
"Still want that massage?" He asked, as his lips floated feather light
across her skin.
Nat laughed softly, "No, I think you've cosseted me perfectly!" She
snuggled against him. "What I want now," she said, "it to stay like this.
In your arms."
Nick kissed her forehead. "Forever." He whispered.
