Aryn's Desire(9)

By: Zoey Derrick

I shudder. “But pain?”

Raine chuckles, “Master?”

It’s weird hearing that come from her mouth, but it spills free so naturally that I’m not sure how I could have missed the endearment in the past.

“Yes, my pet?”

“Can we show him?” she asks with a sweet look on her face.

Dex smiles at her and taps her on the nose. “That might be a good idea.” He adjusts himself and reaches into his pocket. I’m not exactly sure at first what he pulls out, but then he is at her necklace. He reveals a small key in his hand and uses it to unlock the necklace. A change in Raine overcomes her the instant the locket is unlocked and Dex removes it from around her neck. She becomes somber, almost, lowering her head and her body relaxes. “Play collar, t-shirt and shorts,” he says with a commanding tone in his soft voice.

“Yes, Master. Thank you, Master,” she says back to him before he releases her with a kiss on the cheek and she disappears.

I look at Dex. “What is that all about?”

Dex smiles at me. “That necklace is her collar, it’s complicated to explain, and probably more than you really need to know right now, but she has a different one that she wears when we’re playing. Normally though, she’d be naked, but…well, you know.” He smirks. “We won’t play tonight, but she may want to show you some things, or I might. It might sound weird, but I brought her into the playroom one time without changing her collar.” His voice dips as he continues, “Let’s just say, it’s a mindset thing for her. That night didn’t go so well.”

I am thoroughly confused by everything that Dex is telling me. It’s too much to take in and comprehend in one sitting, but I am curious about what’s going to happen as he leads me toward the infamous closed door. I realize that the door isn’t only closed, but locked too when Dex produces a key to unlock it. “I need you to remember to keep an open mind about what is beyond this door.”

“Oh believe me, my mind is wide open right now,” I tell him and he pushes the door open.

Without any prompting, lights flicker within the room and I step across the threshold.

“It looks like a gym,” I tell him as I take in a few different pieces of equipment, as well as a chest of drawers. There are a few implements hanging on the walls. Everything from floggers to whips, cuffs and a few more pervertables.

“It does, but I assure you, this is way more fun.”

“So it’s about sex?” I ask him as I look at many of the objects around the room.

“No, actually it’s not really about sex at all. In fact, Raine and I have never had sex in here.”

I turn to look at him. “You’ve got to be kidding? How could you not?”

He smiles. “That’s easy. Yes, when we play it turns me on unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before, but it isn’t about burying myself inside her. It’s about taking her to a place where she feels free, where I feel free. Believe it or not, we have some pretty vanilla sex, though it is amplified by the heightened sense of arousal we both feel after being in here, but there are many nights where we don’t come in here at all.”

“I’m not sure I want to know all of this about my best friend’s sex life,” I tease.

He chuckles. “Well, if it is something that truly interests you, then I suggest you read up on it. Derek can explain things much better than I can since he’s been doing this a lot longer. But it would be nice to bring you to the club rather than ditch you in the middle of Nashville all by yourself.”


I GUESS GOING to the club with them is better than Dex sneaking out on me. Though he’s done it before, it makes me crazy when I find out about it. It also challenges the trust I have in him when he does it. I have no doubt he’d come up with some convincing argument to ditch me in the middle of Nashville and have no remorse about it whatsoever.

Raine comes into the room, and Dex puts his finger to his lips to silence me. I watch as Raine goes to a cushion on the floor in the corner near the door and she kneels on it. “Watch,” Dex mouths to me and I watch with rapt attention as he approaches Raine. When he reaches her, his hand slides over her braided hair and she melts into his touch. He bends down, crouching next to her, and she leans against him between his legs. This is obviously a very intimate moment between them and as much as I want to look away, my eyes are super glued on them. “We will not be doing a full scene tonight, pet. We’re just going to show Beck a few things, alright?”

“Yes, Master.” Her voice is soft, yet confident. Maybe even a little disappointed, but I have no doubt that if I were in her shoes, I would be disappointed too. I imagine being in here is an adrenaline rush that once it starts, it can’t be undone easily.
