Peter finished his wrapping and headed for the tree, arms filled with packages. This year they wouldn’t have to meet somewhere else. This year no one would have to host Christmas dinner.
This year they were home.
One tree, one bedroom, one house, one family.
Who could ask for anything more?
Max watched the lights of the tree as he sat, curled up in his chair with a blanket wrapped around him. This was magical -- the quiet, the peace. The fact that his lovers were sleeping together in the big bed.
Any minute now, Master Devon was going to slip into the room, and come be with him. It had become their habit. Right on cue he heard the door open, but to his surprise it was Peter.
“Can I sit with you?”
“Always.” He opened his blanket, smiling at his best friend in all the world.
Peter slid in with him, cuddling close, skin cold. It warmed quickly, though as they pressed together.
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?”
“It is. Are you okay?” It was late for Peter to be up.
Peter nodded and leaned against his shoulder. “I just really wanted to have a quiet Christmas moment with you. I need to thank Santa for my best friend.”
Oh. Oh, too cool. “Love you, honey. For always.”
Peter kissed him, not trying to start anything, just pressing their lips together. They took a couple breaths together and Peter murmured, “I love you for always, too.”
Then his best friend and lover laid his head on Max’s shoulder.
He pulled the blankets around them and by the time their masters came to carry them to bed, they were both sound asleep.
Max and Peter and their masters are from Combine.
Peter is the easygoing sub, while Max needs discipline and rules to keep from falling back into bad habits, so both Masters worry about making sure that each boy gets what he needs without making either sub feel neglected. It’s a balancing act that winds up taking some fancy footwork and the stress takes its toll.
As they learn to live and bond together, they discover things about each other that makes them fall more deeply in love, helping to cement their relationships.
Then an unexpected attack on Peter and Max threatens to upset the balance they’ve created, and Swan and Devon must join forces to give their subs what they need to push through and thrive. Will this stumbling block break apart their hard-won new family, or will it forge a stronger foursome?
