Under His Protection
By: Doris O’Connor
Jacqui Page doesn’t know where to look, when her birthday surprise turns out to be a visit to the local BDSM club. Especially when she spots the one man she’s been secretively lusting after for months. Lukas Markz can’t believe his eyes, when his shy-goody-two-shoes-next door neighbor turns up at his club, dressed as every Dom’s wet dream. The silly girl has no idea what she’s up against. Just as well she’s under his protection. If only he could keep his hands off of her.
Lukas shut her up by the expedient method of clamping his hand over her mouth, and after a momentary struggle, his little dove relaxed into his hold. Interesting indeed.
“Good girl, that’s it. Relax, take a breath, and let those worries go for me.” Lukas automatically dropped his voice, while keeping a firm, yet gentle hold on her, and once her breathing slowed down in tune with his, released her.
Jacqui sat back down on the chair, and some of the panic had left her eyes when she looked up at him this time. She answered his smile with a tremulous one of her own, that made all his protective instincts scream at him. She ran her tongue over her lips in another nervous gesture that meant he had to reach down and adjust his dick. Her mouth fell open when she noticed, and she hastily wrenched her gaze away and up to his face. Not that she could bring herself to look at him, and he didn’t miss the way she clenched her thighs together.
Pressing his advantage, Lukas got down to his haunches in front of her and she jumped when he took her hands in his. “Let’s discuss what you’re really doing here. I still want to know what Lauren meant by that neighbor.”
He grinned at her reaction, and held fast when she tried to yank her hands out of his.
“I could ask what Master Jake meant by that comment too.”
The unexpected snark was rather delightful, and he threw his head back and laughed. It meant she finally looked at him, and eventually her lips twitched.
“I fail to see what’s so funny, and I’m still worried about Lauren. You didn’t answer my question if he’s going to hurt her.”
Lukas sobered, and shook his head.
“She has earned a punishment, and yes, he will make that hurt.” He paused when Jacqui tugged on his hold again, and made to rise off the chair. “Stop that, little dove, now.”
He hadn’t meant to put quite so much forceful intonation behind that command, but Jacqui instinctively responded anyway. She kept a wary glance on the door, no doubt imagining untold terrors happening to her friend, and Lukas suppressed a sigh.
“Good girl. When I say he will make it hurt, it’s just that. It wouldn’t be punishment if he didn’t, but once it’s over and done with the slate is clean. He would never harm her, however, and like I said, everything would stop if she used her safe word, punishment or not. She is perfectly safe. Jake cares about your friend a great deal, as you’ll come to see, if I agree to take you through that door.”
That got her attention, because she frowned at him.
“What do you mean, if? I need to see that she’s all right. You can’t stop me from going in there, damn you.”
“Actually, little dove, I can and I will, if I think you’re not ready or likely to cause a scene. Newbie or not, I need to make sure you’ll follow the rules once we enter the club. And they involve not disturbing a scene in process. Some of what you will see in there, will shock you, might even disgust you, and—”
“I’m not as sensitive a wallflower as everyone seems to think I am.”
Mimi gasped at the blatant interruption, and Jacqui looked across to her, as though surprised she was still there. She glared at the other woman and then fixed her expressive eyes on him.
“Well, I’m not, and yes I get it. Just take me through there and let me make sure Lauren is okay, and then I’m out of here, okay. I shan’t take up any more of your precious time, and…”
She stopped speaking when he got up abruptly, and stepping to the side, pulled her up out of the chair.
“As you wish. I warn you however. If I have to escort you off the premises, you will get more than a little birthday spanking. Are we clear?”
He rather enjoyed the way her mouth fell open in silent surprise, before she nodded, but he needed to hear her say the words.
“Speak up, little dove. Rule one of being under my care. Communicate. I’m not a mind reader, and unless I specifically instruct you not to speak, you will tell me what is going on in that pretty head of yours, so again I ask you. Are we clear?”
Crossing his arms over his chest, he raised an eyebrow, and looking confused for a second, she rushed on. “I mean, yes, Sir.”
