My Candidate For The Week

“You're walking funny," Lucy said, a shit-eating grin on her face. Five days of out of this world sex with a starving man could do that to a girl. 
"You're just jealous." Brenna pushed through the door into DarkRiver's business HQ. Lucy made a mournful face. 
"Yes, I am. Goddamn but your man is hot. And he smiles at you! I've seen him do it, even if no one believes me.” 
Since Sienna was in an unusually cooperative mood, the session went well. He was returning from it midmorning - after a short detour - when a small naked body barreled into him in one of the main corridors. Steadying the boy with Tk, he looked down. The child lifted a finger to his lips. "Shh. I'm hiding." With that, he went behind Judd and scrambled into a small alcove. "Quickly! Not sure why he obeyed the order, Judd backed up to stand in front of the alcove, arms crossed. 

A flustered Lara came running around the corner a few seconds later. "Have you seen Ben? Four-year-old. Naked as a jaybird?" 
 "How tall is he?" Judd asked in his most overbearing Psy manner. 
 Lara stared. "He's four. How tall do you think he is? Have you seen him or not?" 
"Let me think...did you say he was naked?"
 "He was about to be bathed. Slippery little monkey." 
A giggle from behind Judd. Lara's eyes widened and then her lips twitched. 
"So you haven't seen him?" 
 "Without a proper description, I can't be sure." The healer was obviously trying not to laugh. "You shouldn't encourage him - he's incorrigible as it is." Judd felt childish hands on his left calf and then Ben poked his head out. 
"I'm incorwigeable, did ya hear?" 
Judd nodded. "I do believe you've been found. Why don't you go have your bath?"
 "Come on, munchkin." Lara held out a hand. Surprisingly strong baby arms and legs wrapped around Judd's leg. 
"No. I wanna stay with Uncle Judd." 
Lara anticipated his question. "Ben spends a lot of time with Marlee." 
"I spend a lot of time with Marlee," a small voice piped up.” 
Judd’s fists were so tight, he was in danger of fracturing his own bones. He understood why Brenna had needed to talk to Dorian. He even understood that the leopard saw Brenna as a young sister, not a potential lover. None of that made any difference. Judd wanted to be the one she turned to when in need. 
 Ice picks of pain shoved through his skull, dissonance so vicious it nearly shut down his consciousness. The countdown was getting inexorably closer to the end. Uncurling his fingers with sheer force of will, he watched the blood rush back in. Last night had made it clear that he’d already crossed too many lines, broken too many rules. Soon, it would be too late to draw back. 
“Thank you, Dorian.” 
No, he would not pull back. Brenna was his. His to pleasure. And his to comfort...”
