Lorette didn’t know what to feel as the plane landed on Master Drake’s island. On one hand she would be around John all the time, yet on the other hand she no longer belonged to Master Darius. This thought brought tears to her eyes. Master Darius was the only Master she ever knew and now technically she didn’t have a Master. John was Mistress Jessica’s submissive, he wasn’t a Master. Master Drake was the Master of this island and only agreed to let her stay here as a favor to Master Darius. She had no idea if he planned on letting her serve him or not. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to serve Master Drake or not. All of a sudden Lorette felt lost and she began to wonder if she made a mistake leaving Master Darius.
The plane door opened and the flight attendant helped Lorette off the plane. She was almost in full on panic mode until she spotted John waiting to greet her. Of course Jessica was right beside him, this didn’t matter. Lorette’s gaze was on John. God, he was male perfection to her. His strong body, handsome face, he towered over his Mistress. He stood there so protective of his Mistress. He was unlike any male submissive Lorette had ever seen before. She felt her heart pound in her chest. Her pulse raced and she became aroused just looking at him.
“Thank you for allowing me to stay here, Mistress Jessica,” Lorette said. The smile that came across John’s face almost made Lorette whimper. Her body needed his so badly she was about to pounce on him.
“You are welcome, yet it is Drake you should be thanking. He is the one who allowed you to stay here.”
“Of course, I will thank Master Drake.”
“It must be hard leaving your Master.”
“It is,” Lorette said quietly. She felt the pang of loss and it renewed her fight to keep from crying.
“Drake will help you to adjust. Master Darius said you could call him anytime if you needed.”
“He did?” Lorette smiled. She felt better knowing Master Darius wasn’t going to just forget about her.
“Yes, he did. Now let’s get you back to the house.”
John opened the door of the jeep and helped Lorette inside, then he helped Jessica. He walked over to the driver’s side and got in. Jessica glanced back at Lorette. It was obvious Lorette was in love with John. This thought gave Jessica a pang of jealousy. How dare Master Darius arrange letting his submissive live here. Yet, she couldn’t fault Darius he was only looking out for his submissive. Drake should have refused to let Lorette live here. He knew how much Jessica didn’t want this. Jessica was quite vocal about this whole situation.
“You alright, Mistress?” John asked.
“I will be fine. Drake and I had a disagreement. We will resolve it, we always do.”
“You argue with Master Drake?” Lorette said surprised.
“If I argued with Master Darius, geez I wouldn’t want to think about what kind of punishment he would have given me.”
“Drake is my husband, so I’m entitled to argue with him every now and then.”
“I guess so.”
Jessica turned slightly so she could get a better view of Lorette. “What do you mean by that?”
“Master Drake is the Master of this island. Respect must always be shown to him. Even by his wife I would think.”
“Our home is quite a bit different than Master Darius’ home.”
“I noticed that the last time I was here.”
“John, stop the jeep.”
“How is our home different?” Jessica glared at Lorette.
“Master Darius is a very strict Master. Master Drake is a bit more relaxed. Master Darius demands respect just by his presence. Master Drake does too in a way, but not to the same degree. Master Drake’s submissives are not disciplined and he is way too lenient with them.”
“Drake is a kind Master. I supposed compared to Darius, who is nothing but a hard ass, condescending, arrogant…”
“Don’t speak about Master Darius in such a manner. He has earned respect by his deeds not because Master Xanthos is in love with him.” Lorette regretted those words the second they came out of her mouth.
“Perhaps, we should let Master Drake deal with this, Mistress,” John said.
“You are right. Drive on.” Jessica shot Lorette a dirty look then turned back around and faced forward.
John looked at Lorette in the rearview mirror. She looked so lost. He couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. He knew her presence here upsets his Mistress, though he is yet to know why it did. Sure Lorette has no problem speaking her mind, but this shouldn’t be reason enough not to like her. John wasn’t about to question his Mistress.
After a few moments they pulled up to the house.
“I will go get Drake. You better show him respect, Lorette.” Jessica didn’t wait for John to help her out of the jeep. She headed inside the house.
“It would be wise to remember that Mistress is Master Drake’s wife.” John helped Lorette out of the jeep. “You seemed to still be in love with Master Darius.” He grabbed her two suitcases.
“He will always have a place in my heart.”
“Then why come serve Master Drake if you still care for your Master?” He started to walk up the stairs.
“It is not Master Drake that draws me to this island.” She followed him up the stairs.
John turned around and looked at her. “Who draws you here?”
Lorette gazed up into his handsome face. “You do. I want to get to know you, John.”
“You left your Master to get to know me. Why would you do such a thing?”
“A woman’s heart is a funny thing.” She smiled at him and headed into the house. She bowed her head to Drake as he came into the foyer.
“You have upset my wife. John, you can take her bags to the room that is prepared for her.”
John headed upstairs.
“I didn’t mean to upset her. She was speaking badly about Master Darius and it pissed me off.”
“You will remember to show my wife the same respect you would show me.”
“I plan on showing you all kinds of respect. You are the Master of the island. But, with all due respect, I see Jessica as I would another submissive. I will not follow her orders. I don’t follow any woman’s orders, even if she calls herself Mistress.”
“You are going to be a pain in the ass, aren’t you?”
“Not to you I won’t be. You are a Master. Your pets, on the other hand, that is a different matter. As long as they don’t give me shit I will play nice.”
Drake sighed. He was in no mood to put up with an uppity submissive. He noticed her mood shifting and her demeanor changing. He looked to where her gaze was and saw John walking down the stairs. She was in love with John it read on her face. This was beyond just sexual attraction as he first believed this was. Now Drake understood why Jessica was so pissed off at him. She didn’t want any other female being in love with her submissive.
“Go get settled in. You have already been introduced to my pets. Try and play nicely with them.”
“I will try, Master Drake.”
“Just call me Master.”
“If that makes you happy.”
“John, show her to her room.”
“No John, you stay with me,” Jessica said as she entered the foyer.
“Affection, show Lorette to her room,” Drake said as he spotted Affection coming down the stairs.
Drake waited for them to leave then he turned to Jessica. “Send him away now, then get into my office.” Drake headed to his office.
“Mistress, you shouldn’t keep pissing him off.”
“You are my submissive, not his.”
“I have no wish to come between husband and wife.”
“You aren’t, so don’t worry. Stay away from Lorette.”
