Mystery God Excerpt

“If you were going to lose your virginity one way or another tonight in our bedroom, which type of lover would you prefer?”

“What are you talking about?”

“That’s your surprise, Marduk. Tonight, you’re going to be with a man.”

Marduk’s stomach dropped. “Okay, you can untie me now.”

“Answer me before I decide for you, and I’m thinking I really want to see you get fucked.”

“Shala! That’s not funny.” Marduk began to pull on his bindings.

Shala smiled and placed a blindfold over his eyes, plunging him into darkness.

“Okay. I would prefer someone like Aya.”

Shala kissed him again, and both goddesses got up off the bed. Marduk’s heart started pounding. Were they really doing this?

A few moments later, a door opened and footsteps approached. A hand touched his thigh, sending a shiver through his body. The touch was soft but rougher than that of a goddess. The hand slid up his thigh, along his pelvis, torso, and chest, before slipping behind his neck. Soft lips caressed his nipples, and his sex stiffened. When the man’s naked body brushed against his, Marduk’s muscles tensed, and his heartbeat quickened. All of a sudden, he wanted to break free. He had no idea who was touching him or what this man might do to him. His breathing became labored. Then the man leaned down close, lips hovering over his, and kissed Marduk gently. A vibrant shock shot through his body, making his cock even harder. He suddenly felt the need to possess the man’s mouth. He kissed the man back, and the instant the man yielded, allowing his tongue entrance, the taste of sweet peaches overwhelmed his senses. The man’s lips were like the nectar of the gods, and Marduk groaned, unable to restrain his desire. Never before had he tasted such heaven. Where did they find this man? The man’s slim, naked body lowered onto his own. Marduk’s breath hitched. He was too perfect.

“Who are you?” Marduk panted. He wanted to yank his wrists free from his bindings and tear off his blindfold to behold the beautiful creature lying on top of him. He waited for an answer, but the man said nothing.

“Answer me. Are you a man or a god?” Marduk persisted.

“A god,” a soft voice whispered. Marduk’s stomach dropped, and the blood seemed to drain from his limbs. What the hell were Shala and Nanya thinking? He struggled to rein in his senses.

“I want you to untie my hands. I need to touch you.”

“Marduk,” Shala’s voice came from beside the bed. “I’ll let him untie you as long as you keep your blindfold on.”

When his bindings were free, Marduk sat up, grabbed the slender god, and pulled him into his arms.

“I want to know who you are,” he said, running his hands over the god’s face, trying to match what he felt with a face that he knew. What god could they possibly bring to him that was like Aya? How many gods like Aya existed? Marduk let his hands glide down the god’s firm chest, exploring his sleek body, until his fingers clutched his perfect round butt. Marduk pulled him onto his lap so his legs were straddling his hips. Then he grasped the god’s erect member, eliciting a gasp, his body jerking from his touch. Marduk took a deep breath. Could he really do this? He didn’t even know who it was in his arms. Could I really fuck him?

“Why did you agree to this?” Marduk released his cock and ran his hands over the god’s buttocks.

“I really like you,” the god whispered.

“Do you like me enough to let me fuck you?” Marduk dug his fingers into the underside of the god’s thighs.

“Yes,” he breathed.

“Do you think I would change my mind if I knew who you were?”

“No.” His voice wavered.

“Why did you agree to this? Why not approach me directly?”

“I … I guess I was too shy.”

Marduk smiled, pulling the god closer. The meek responses made him want him more.

“I won’t fuck you unless I can look into your eyes while I’m inside you,” Marduk said, running his hands into the god’s silky hair. The god groaned into his neck, fingers clutching desperately to his back.

“Please, Marduk, just let me pleasure you.” The god kissed his neck, beginning a trail down his chest and abdomen, until his lips finally brushed against Marduk’s erect member. Marduk’s breath left him, and his heart began to pound.
