Excerpt of "Bind Me"
Pain walked around the island. He was lost in his thoughts and didn’t realize that he had walked all the way out to the compound. The workmen were putting the finishing touches on it.
“You shouldn’t be out here. Your Master specifically stated he didn’t want you guys coming out here while we are working. He doesn’t want you to get hurt,” one of the workers said.
“I’m not sticking around.” Pain turned around and headed back in the direction he came.
Ever since Master Rex came here to get Fawn back, Pain couldn’t get him out of his mind. And this made him feel guilty. He loved Master Drake with all his heart. Drake has been a very kind and giving Master, especially to Pain’s twin brother Pleasure. Yet, Master Rex filled Pain’s dreams. Never had Pain been so attracted to someone like this. He thought his desire for Master Drake was intense, but this thing with Rex…
The funny part was Rex never touched Pain, never spoke directly to him. It was just that one moment when their eyes locked. It stills sends shivers down Pain’s spine. The intensity of Rex’s gaze…
“There you are.”
Pain snapped out of his daydream upon hearing Rage’s voice.
“Master is worried about you.”
“I’m sorry. I was just out for a walk.”
“You have been gone all day, dude. Are you alright?”
“I don’t know.”
“Gonna miss your brother, huh?”
“Yeah…that’s it. He and Beauty deserve this little vacation.”
“It must suck having him be with her all the time.”
“No, it doesn’t. She makes him happy, that is all I care about.”
“Get you butt in the jeep so I can take you back to Master.”
Pain went over to the jeep and hopped into the passenger side. He didn’t say anything on the way back. He saw Master Drake waiting on the porch. The look of relief on his face was touching.
“Where did you go?”
“I went for a walk and got lost.” Pain climbed out of the jeep and went up to Drake. He breathed in the scent of his Master as Drake held him tightly.
“There is more to this, isn’t there, my pet.” Drake slowly released him.
Pain said nothing.
“Rage, thank you for finding him, you can go back to whatever it was you were doing.”
Drake grabbed Pain’s hand and led him into his office. He gestured for him to sit down.
“My pet…” Drake sat on the chair across from the sofa. “I know there is something bothering you. Please tell me what it is. I don’t like it when my pets hurt.”
“I can’t tell you.” Pain couldn’t look him in the eye, but instead kept his gaze on Drake’s feet.
“You can tell me anything.”
“It’s a combination of many things. I will get over it.”
“No you won’t. I know you, my pet, you don’t let things get to you like this. Now tell me what is going on.”
“My brother is so happy with Beauty, he doesn’t need me like he use to. And you…well, you spend most of your time with Jessica, Ecstasy and now that new one Jet.”
“If you need me…”
“I know you will be there for me, it’s just that…” He felt Drake sit down next to him on the sofa. He wanted so badly to tell his Master what he was feeling, but he didn’t want to chance hurting him.
“What else, my pet. You can tell me anything.”
“You have been so kind and loving to me. I don’t want to sound ungrateful.” Pain looked up into Drake’s face.
“I’m not what you need, am I?” Drake said softly.
Pain felt his emotions bubble up. Drake hit the nail on the head. “I do love you, Master.”
“I know you do.”
Pain looked back at the floor. The words he wanted to say wouldn’t form. He feared his desires and yet he couldn’t deny them. He felt Drake’s hand gently stroke his hair.
“It is Master Rex that holds your attention, isn’t it?”
Pain looked quickly back up into Drake’s face. How could he know that?
“You started acting different after Rex was here.” Drake stood and went over to the small bar. He poured himself a drink. “Rex has asked me to let his slave Lucy stay here while she sorts out her feelings. It seems him coming here to get Fawn really hurt their relationship. He wants to trade submissives for a little while. If Rex has captured your interest perhaps you should go stay with him while Lucy stays here.” Drake couldn’t tell Pain that Rex was pissed as hell about Lucy wanting to stay with Drake. In fact it was Lucy that called and asked if she could stay. Drake called Rex to get his permission. Rex was livid, so Drake proposed maybe trading submissives in an attempt to soothed Rex’s ego. Though, at the time, Drake was going to send Rage, knowing he could handle his own against Rex. Drake wasn’t thrilled about sending any of his pets to Rex.
“I want my pets to be happy. If I’m not what you need then I want to give you what you need. If you decide that Rex isn’t right for you, you are always welcomed here.” Drake was surprised when Pain started to cry. He hurried over to him and took him into his arms.
“I’m sorry, Master.” The overwhelming guilt Pain felt was almost too much. Drake took Pain and his brother Pleasure in. He loved them unconditionally even though they did work in what was basically a male whorehouse. He took care of Pleasure when he was sick and allowed Pleasure to marry his female pet Beauty. He gave both of them whatever they wanted. And now he was going to leave the one person in this godforsaken world that showed them love.
“Don’t do this to yourself, my pet. I want you to be happy. You will always have a home here. You will always be my pet even if you decide Rex is what you need. Please don’t cry.” Drake wiped Pain’s tears away. “Even if you stay with Rex, you still can come to my island and visit with your brother. No more tears. You have got packing to do and a phone call to make.”
“A phone call?”
“You will have to let Pleasure know what you will be doing.”
“Oh yeah. Master…”
“Now go. I will have my jet take you to Rex. It can also bring Lucy back here. At least I think that is how Rex wants to do this. When I know for sure I will tell you.”
“Where does he live?”
“On the big island of Hawaii. So, it’s not that far away. Now go get ready.” Drake watched Pain leave. He was afraid this day was coming. He saw how Pain looked at Rex. The familiar sadness of losing one of his pets filled Drake. He slowly sipped his drink. He heard a soft knock on the door.
“Come in.” He quickly composed himself.
“Master…” Jet said as he came in. He knelt down on the floor at Drake’s feet. “Pain is leaving?”
“Are you alright?”
Drake stroked Jet’s hair. “I will be.”
Dante looked at Bazil kneeling there before him. That woman who used to be Falcon’s slave and the one who killed the pompous bastard was staying with Bazil now. She turned herself into the police and was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Now, that crazy bitch was staying here. Dante wasn’t comfortable with this.
“Master, we can’t just turn her away.”
“She killed her Master, my Bazil.”
“She was driven to it. I don’t think she meant to kill him.”
“I have talked to Drake about taking that woman…”
“Her name is Lucy, Master.”
“Whatever. Drake’s already taking Rex’s Lucy in and he is losing his pet Pain to Rex, he is not in the mood to take on your Lucy. Having two submissives with the same name would be a pain anyways.”
“There has to be someone who can help her.”
Dante sat down in his chair and looked at Bazil kneeling there. Damn it, Bazil had that look on his face that Dante had trouble saying no to. However, he wasn’t going to let that Lucy stay here.
“It’s such a soap opera in the community right now. Rex losing yet another favorite slave, Xanthos has two new Masters he refuses to let journey off on their own.”
“The crazy old fuck is using them as substitutes for me and Drake. Talon is being a douche as usual. Angelique is all worked up over some Mistress named Lilith. Apparently this Lilith has the hots for me, and my angel has a problem with that.”
“I have never heard of this Mistress Lilith.”
“She trains all new Mistresses, apparently. I have never heard of her either. I don’t keep up with all the comings and goings of this community. Angelique fills me in. “
“Angelique knows she has your heart.”
“This Lilith is supposed to be very beautiful. I think that is what got her panties in a bunch. Let’s see, who else could I send Lucy to…”
Bazil came over and knelt beside Dante he laid his head on Dante’s leg. “Thank you, Master.”
“I’m only even thinking about this because of you, my Bazil. I don’t give two shits about that Lucy.” Dante thought for a moment. “There is Mistress Roxanne, but I wouldn’t send a dog to that bitch. Jasper and Jak would just freak Lucy out.”
“They are identical twins who train their submissives in the same mansion.”
“That would be kind of weird. You wouldn’t know which was your Master.”
“Exactly. Shit, it’s been so long since I thought about this bunch of misfits. That new young Master, what’s his name…” Dante thought for second. “Oh yeah, Lash is his stupid name.” Dante rolled his eyes. “Nah, he isn’t experience enough to handle a broken submissive. Royce only likes to have male submissives, the occasional female submissive Xanthos sends his way always leave the lifestyle when he gets through with them. Sage, might work, but he has a thing for me so I will have to play with him if he takes Lucy and I don’t really want to play with him.”
“Is he unattractive?”
“Quite the contrary, he is pretty hot, it’s a long story, one I don’t want to get into. Max is to quiet and he doesn’t like me all that much. He adores Xanthos and I don’t. I don’t know, Bazil…”
“Master, I can’t just leave Lucy on her own. She came back here hoping I could help her.”
Dante rested his head on the back of the chair. “Wait…there is that weird fucker Jinx…problem is he is Rex’s little bitch and he is still pissed at me for scarring Rex’s face.”
“Let me ask him, Master.”
“No.” Dante stood. “I wouldn’t put it pass that weird fucker to hurt you to get to me. And there is no way he would come here anyways.”
“What if we meet him some where neutral?”
“Bazil, this Jinx isn’t about to do me any favors.”
“Then, please let me ask him over the phone.”
Dante figured there was no harm in it. Jinx would tell Bazil to fuck off and it would be the end of it. The funny part was that Jinx would probably be a good choice for Lucy. He was the complete opposite of what Rex was, even though it was Rex who trained him. “Alright, Bazil, I will have Angelique look up Jinx’s number. But under no circumstance are you to agree to meet with him without clearing it with me first.”
“Thank you, Master.” Bazil stood and ran over to Dante. He wrapped his arms around Dante’s waist and hugged him tightly.
“I spoil you too much, you know that don’t you?”
“I’m grateful for your generosity, Master.”
Dante stroked Bazil’s hair with one hand and held him tightly to him with the other.
“Master, you are not going to believe who is on the phone,” Lulu said as she skated over to Jinx with the phone cupped in her hand.
“Who is it?” Jinx splattered some more paint over the canvas.
“Master Dante’s Bazil.”
“No shit…” Jinx chuckled as he set his paintbrush down and admired his painting. “Conception…yeah, that’s this one’s name.”
“What do you want me to tell him?”
Jinx wiped the paint off of his hands. “I will talk to him.”
“Master will speak to you,” Lulu said into the phone, then she handed the phone over to Jinx.
“Thank you for your time, Master Jinx.”
“I like your voice. It’s so tender, a far cry from your ogre Master’s voice.”
“Please, don’t speak ill of my Master.”
“Loyal, I like that. So what do you want, Dante’s Bazil?” Jinx slapped Lulu on the ass sending her on her way. “Come on, don’t be shy.” Jinx walked over to his garden room. He smiled seeing the colorful birds flying around.
“I want to talk to you about a submissive who needs your training.”
“You are tired of Master Dante?”
“I assume you are the submissive. I like your soft voice and I heard you are really pretty, I like pretty guys.”
“Not me, I would never leave my Master…”
Jinx heard some strange sounds like Bazil dropped the phone or something.
“Listen, you flipping freak…”
“Crude as ever I see, Dante.”
“Cut the shit. My Bazil wanted to ask you to take on a damaged submissive that is under his care.”
“Why don’t you do it? Oh wait, you aren’t the nurturing type. Why would I do anything for you?”
“It’s not for me, you fruitcake.”
“Have your Bazil ask me? I have no desire to speak to you, especially after what you did to Rex’s handsome face.”
“He had that coming.”
“Why not have Drake or that Rapture take on this submissive?”
“I want Bazil to ask me. Put him back on or I’m hanging up.” Jinx smiled hearing Dante cursing under his breath.
“Please Master Jinx, Lucy needs some guidance right now. I can’t give that to her.”
“Lucy…Rex’s Lucy went to Dante’s house…I thought she was going to Drake’s island.”
“It’s not Master Rex’s submissive…”
“Who’s submissive is this Lucy’s?”
“She was…Master Falcon’s former submissive.”
“Master Falcon is dead…oh wait, she is the one who stabbed that asshole isn’t she?”
“Yes,” Bazil said quietly. “She has gotten counseling and…she needs to serve a Master, a good Master.”
“What makes you think I’m a good Master? You don’t know me.”
“My Master said you would be good for her.”
Jinx laughed loudly. “In other words, since Drake and Rapture are busy and I’m guessing Dante didn’t want to play slap and tickle with Sage, I’m the only one left.” Jinx laughed louder when Bazil remained silent.
“Please, Master Jinx, I promised to help Lucy.”
“What are you willing to give me in return?”
“What is it that you want?”
“I don’t know. Maybe I would like to fuck Dante’s favorite plaything…”
“Are you going to do it or not?” Dante growled into the phone.
“You are no fun. Have Bazil bring the submissive here and I will see if I can work with her and only Bazil can come, I don’t want you in my home.”
“Like hell I’m letting him go to your home alone.”
“Then we have a problem.” Jinx heard Bazil saying something to Dante but he couldn’t make it out.
“Master Jinx, would it be alright to meet at Master Drake’s island?” Bazil said as Dante listened in.
“Master Drake’s island, well I have never been there before. Make the arrangements. I can bring that ungrateful submissive of Rex’s to Drake’s island for him. Give my submissive the details when everything is ready. Remember, I don’t want to see Dante.”
“Why, you afraid of me?” Dante growled.
“Not hardly, I will be too tempted to get some payback for what you did to Rex and I don’t want to mess up my karma right now.”
“You hurt my Bazil…”
“Save it, I wouldn’t hurt any submissive, not even yours.” Jinx hung up the phone. Now he was going to have to call Rex and tell him that he would take Lucy to Drake’s island. This would make Rex feel better and Jinx could see what kind of submissive Drake was intending on sending back to Rex. He was also curious to see Dante’s Bazil in person. Rex talked a lot about this Bazil. That submissive Bazil was bringing, well that was a different matter. If she gave him bad vibes he was leaving her at Drake’s.
“What in interesting turn of events,” Jinx said as he dialed Rex’s number. He had to do this for Rex. For once, he was going to try and make things easier on Rex. It will be hard to go to Drake’s island without Rex with him, but Jinx was going to do this.
