Kurn, a mountain warrior with an unruly, mouth-craving cock, has been sent to offer a boon to the great Huuman, Lord Griffin, Defender of Kossh, for his help in expunging the scimitar-raiders. To his shock, however, Lord Griffin instead offers the valiant Kurn a gift that answers his most compelling need.
“How are you enjoying Scarfe?”
Kurn looked up in surprise. Standing on the raised platform that surrounded his deep, steaming, haycart-sized bath he was currently immersed in was a figure he knew well from the war, though until that week he had not seen him in the city: it was Ogan, the tall, burly commander of the Sword-Elite and the Defender’s own right-hand man, dressed in simple breeches and a sleeveless jerkin. The braziers kindled his planed face and bared, bulging arms in stark relief against the night’s deep shadows.
Kurn stared up at him for a moment, his manners temporarily deserting him. Kurn came to the public baths at this hour, late at night after the second hour of dark had already tolled, because he knew he’d have the place to himself. Scarfe, as it seemed, was a community of early risers, and those townsmen and artisans who came to the baths tended to do so in the bright early mornings, with a select few stopping by on the way home to supper; and whichever time they came, they gravitated toward the larger, almost pond-sized wooden tanks of the main room baths where they might visit and socialize while they submerged in the famous warm, fragrant, mineral-laden waters, if they bothered to bathe at all. By the late hours after nightfall the complex was reliably deserted, but just to be sure Kurn always took one of the smaller side rooms and arrived at the latest time the keeper of the baths allowed—all lest his longtime peculiar problem, and its more recent and unlooked-for aggravant, cause unseemly disruption among the good people of this riverside merchant hub nestled in the bustling northlands below the silent, snowcapped mountains of his home.
The first problem was at least one Kurn was used to dealing with. His too-ready prick had been hard to hide back in Aleff, the high alpine village he’d grown up in. From puberty onward the way a warm smile from a handsome man or a woodcutter’s tight trousers was enough to instantly stiffen Kurn’s long, tireless cock to the hardness of an iron club had inevitably become the subject of much ribald jest up and down the nearby slopes. Kurn wasn’t eager to acquire the same kind of reputation in Scarfe, especially since he couldn’t count on the relaxed, jocular attitude of the mountains toward such rude matters down here among all these sensible city folk.
But that wasn’t even his biggest concern. His old surefire tendency to spring rigid, unstoppable erections at the slightest sign of male beauty, even his own, was nothing next to the unexpected side-effects of having acquired his very own cocksucking fleshsock: a strange tubular creature, long presumed mythical, that actually delighted in driving stiff, desperate erections to cataclysmic release. Not only had he come into possession of such a beast, by dint of the Defender’s gratitude for his valor in the bandit war combined with an unnerving insight into Kurn’s secret need, but in a moment of mad lust he had given the creature open consent to seek its pleasure with him without restriction.
What he hadn’t known, what he could not have dreamed, was that the creature was almost as insatiable as Kurn himself.
As near as Kurn could tell, the beast barely slept. At most it tended to curl up and doze contentedly for a half hour at most after feeding, only to wake up horny and ready for more. And the strange thing was, Kurn found himself deeply aroused by the very fact of the beast’s relentless, unslakable desire for cock and cum. Just gazing on it in bed beside him, waking from its nap and turning its avid mouth toward him, was enough to make Kurn hard and longing to feel its hot, constricting, twisting, cock-lathing insides wrapped firmly and happily around his rigid, unflagging tool.
At first this state of affairs had had little practical consequence, as Kurn had been staying in and had had little to occupy him day and night beyond the creature’s delightful ministrations. But then the Defender had sent word asking if he would be willing to lead two weeks of half-day training sessions in the mountain crossbow for those of his men that were interested. Unable to refuse such a polite request from the man who’d helped save Aleff, Kurn had reluctantly agreed. But when he arrived on the training grounds the next day, he realized he was in deep trouble.
The Sword-Elite were all there, every one. One hundred of the finest specimens of masculinity, culled from the length and breadth of Kossh and even beyond, their forms honed and firmed by a lifetime of soldiering and the rigorous drills of their honored company. A hard-packed courtyard full of such men would have been trial enough for the hot-blooded Kurn. But on that day, as he entered the grounds and saw them standing in rigid formation, he discovered that the Sword-Elite trained completely stripped to the waist. He stopped and froze as the midmorning sun beat down on a veritable sea of solid, limber muscle… rank upon rank of manly flesh of all colors, all degrees of hairiness, plain and wickedly handsome, from grinning, impossibly fit youths five years Kurn’s junior to dour veterans with silver chest hair and rippling thews that seemed made of stone. They all stared at Kurn, the well-made mountaineer, with an avid, stone-faced curiosity, as though assessing his manliness and finding it insufficiently proven. Or maybe that was just Kurn.
A hand slapped on his shoulder, startling him, and he turned to see Ogan, the towering, hairy, thick-muscled ex-guard who now led the Sword-Elite on the Defender’s behalf. He was shirtless like the rest, almost glowing in the warm morning sun, even under the dark hair the covered his powerful chest and stone-hard abdomen. Kurn’s jaw fell open slightly as he found himself all but bewitched by the very monument to strength and rough beauty that was this man. His hand slackened, almost causing him to drop the crossbow he was carrying, and he tightened his grip only just in time. Though his undergarments were tightly wrapped around his troublesome equipment, Kurn felt his cock squeezing itself free from constraints and straightening to total hardness.
“They are an impressive bunch, aren’t they?” Ogan said knowingly.
Kurn swallowed as heat raged through him. And then, to his utter dismay, he felt it, like a tickling at the base of his mind: the beast. It was coming.
Surely that was a just a legend? That it would appear from nowhere like a green fairy, the moment you had need of it? But then, the cocksucking fleshsock was itself a legend, a crazy myth no one thought was real, and yet there it had been in his bed that very morning, wantonly spending an entire hour to drive Kurn to an orgasm so delicious he had barely managed to force himself from his bed to fulfill his promise to the Sword-Elite.
And he had already given his blanket consent. In mere seconds it would appear and start pleasuring Kurn in front of the entirety of the Sword-Elite and their heart-wrenchingly alluring commander…
Kurn’s long cock bucked eagerly in his thick trousers, loving the idea. No! he told it. He tried to tell the beast, too. No! Not here!
He felt the press of it in his mind. There were no words, no thoughts, just an animal insistence and an implacable urgency.
Ogan was giving him a funny look. Kurn was still staring—at Ogan’s throat, as it happened. Though Ogan wore no beard and started each day clean-shaven, deep-brown bristles were already starting to creep along his firm jaw and along his cheek and throat.
Kurn coughed and turned away. Not trusting his voice, he gestured for Ogan to take his position before the company, and Kurn would follow. Not now! he begged the beast in his mind as he followed Ogan, acutely aware of his needy erection. It was not the first time he had appeared (and had to walk around) with a rigid cock, but never had he stood engorged and aroused before so many sharp and penetrating eyes… so many skilled and desirable men. His cock seemed to swell and harden even more as the thought of such a company hounded him. A hundred men… a hundred hard, eager men, trained in agility and action… their eyes fixed on him and him alone…
The urgency did not relent. Maybe if he tried making it conditional? Not while people can see you! he thought.
The press of the beast on his mind seemed to hesitate, then step back… but it did not withdraw. It was waiting. Like the beast it was, it lay coiled in suspense, poised for the moment it could strike. A sudden thought struck Kurn—but no, his snug trousers had no room for the beast. Otherwise it would have appeared around his cock at once, under his clothes. As he stood beside Ogan, who was introducing him in his loud, rich voice to those who had not already encountered him in the mountain battles, he thought he should make a vow to himself never to always wear tight clothes from now on. And yet—the thought was intensely beguiling. Sitting somewhere in public, the city plaza perhaps, people milling all around, and, under a slack pair of pantaloons or even a flowing skirt such as southern men wore, the beast, giving him endless pleasure…
Ogan’s introductions were done and he, too, was looking at Kurn expectantly. How could a hundred and one men be so silent? It was as if the only sound he could hear was the burning of the sun high in the blue midmorning sky. Kurn forced himself to focus. He exhibited his crossbow and explained its parts and principles to the company, all the while feeling their hot stares on him while the broad, imposing figure of Ogan loomed palpably in his peripheral vision. He demonstrated a few shots on a target that had been set up, trying as best he could to discuss tactics and accommodations for wind, weather, and distance while his cock throbbed and his beast began nudging at the back of his mind.
With the help of Master Wass the blacksmith and his fellow artisans, arrangements had been made for ten sturdy yew crossbows of the northern mountain type and a mess of iron-tipped arrows of like kind to be constructed in the time Kurn had been in Scarfe, in hopes that just such training might in fact come about. As they were being distributed and the company reforming in lines to take turns with the bows, Kurn decided could not wait any longer. Muttering a quick apology to a surprised Ogan, Kurn rushed into the long barracks facing the training ground. He found an empty room used for storing stacks of thick straw mats and other odds and ends near the main doors and dove into the darkened space, all but ripping his trousers open in his haste.
He barely had a chance to see his prick spring free and marvel that it appeared unusually large—perhaps it was the unfamiliar surroundings?—when the beast appeared all at once around it, as though it were protecting it from exposure to air by engulfing it in itself. With his trousers and undergarments around his boots Kurn collapsed bare-assed onto the nearest stack of matts and gave himself over to pleasure. “Yes,” he praised, “that’s so good. You really are a fucking beast!” Already he felt his climax quickening and growled. Normally the fleshsock did everything it could to draw out Kurn’s arousal and hold off his orgasm as long as possible, ensuring it was as explosive as the beast could make it, but this time Kurn was just too aroused. “Yes, you fucking beast!” he grunted. “I’m going to shoot so hard…!” In seconds Kurn was spitting massive amounts of cum deep inside the writhing, hungry fleshsock, shooting his seed again and again until finally his balls felt emptied of a whole cask of hot, heavy spunk. Utterly relaxed and swimming in warm gratification, he watched as the happy beast vanished as quickly as it had arrived, leaving his thick, not-quite spent cock laying sticky, pink, and sated against his thigh.
With a resigned but thoroughly contented sigh, Kurn used a stray rag from a nearby bin to clean his cock and groin of stray spunk and set about restoring his clothing. Finally checked himself over, decided he looked presentable and not too much like someone who had just released a massive climax in a side room, and headed out to oversee the crossbow training—only to find the entire company of the Sword-Elite standing right there, not lined up in front of the targets as he’d left them but instead ringed around the entrance to the barracks, bent as if to listen; and when Kurn stepped out of the building and into the bright sunlight the whole crowd of them straightened up and began applauding enthusiastically, with hoots and cheers as well.
Kurn felt himself turning beet red as Ogan stepped out of the crowd, once again smacking a meaty hand down on his shoulder. “I trust now your ‘beast’ is… satisfied?” the large man asked with a smirk, his deep, comforting voice effortlessly carrying over the whole of the training grounds. A chuckle rippled through the happy crowd. Kurn stared at him, hot-cheeked and mortified, then wrenched his gaze away and stared hard at the ground, hoping desperately that it would tear open under his very boots as it had for Kaakan of Zeg in the battle of the seven ravens, or so the legends said.
“Your mountain ways are interesting,” Ogan continued, his hand strong and warm on Kurn’s shoulder. “Perhaps the Sword-Elite should consider adding similar training breaks to its routine as well.” There was more laughter at this, and a few shouts in the affirmative. Before Kurn could find any words to respond, though, Ogan turned and called out, “Company! Form ranks!”, and a moment later Kurn was standing in front of the barracks, alone, embarrassed, and already back to being as rock-hard as if he’d never cum that day at all. Oddly, he found himself smiling even as his cheeks remained red. At least they weren’t so dour now, he thought. He hurried over to guide the first round of target practice, his thick, heavy cudgel of a cock rubbing impatiently against the fabric of his underclothes as he ran. And the psychic press of his insatiable beast at the back of his mind was never far away.
The whole week went like that. Kurn would show up at midmorning, already completely aroused no matter how much he had let the beast pleasure him beforehand, and the company would greet him with knowing smiles as they formed up for target practice. After about a half hour of watchful tutelage, in which the glistening sinews of the elite warriors as they hauled and locked their strings and fired, their bolts thwapping against the straw targets, stoked Kurn’s lust almost beyond endurance, Ogan would call a break, and the company and its commander would pretend their new bowmaster was not fleeing for the privacy of the barracks to satisfy a need that could not be denied another moment. After that first day they did not gather and listen—or so Kurn thought, though it seemed that when he returned the men were forming up into their rows again with suspicious haste.
The men all treated him as one of their number, smiling and slapping his shoulder as they left the grounds for their mid-day meal (after which would come their more customary sword-training with Ogan and the Defender); some even hugged him, thrilling him with the embrace of their sun-warmed, sweat-slicked bare physiques. Kurn felt he must seem ungrateful if he did not make some gesture in return, so on the fourth day he arrived in the training grounds stripped to the waist like all the rest of the company. The men were delighted and greeted him with a unison cheer Kurn did not understand, Duuriy!; but Ogan explained it was old Kosshian soldiers’ slang for “brother”. Grinning, Kurn shouted the word back to them, and then they all shouted Duuriy! together.
At first the novelty of being stripped above his waist distracted Kurn from his customary welling lust in the presence of so many virile men going about the exertions of crossbow archery under the warm Kosshian sun. But at some point he glanced down at his firm chest, his rigid cock visible in the dark trousers below, and Kurn had a sudden flash not only of his mighty fleshsock appearing to engulf his equally mighty club of a cock, but also two baby fleshsocks appearing with it to minister just as avidly to his hard, sensitive nipples; and all at once Kurn was cresting the edge of orgasm. His beast rose the back of his mind, clamoring to be let at his cock, and before he could even discipline himself to proceed with the training Kurn’s feet had already sent him running for the barracks, the laughing whispers of the men ringing in his ears.
When he returned, flushed and shamefaced, the company were lined up as before, but their faces were mostly creased with smirks. Ogan politely offered him a shirt, since, he explained, Kurn’s comeliness seemed to be a distraction even to Kurn himself; but Kurn gamely refused, and returned to the training with his cheeks still pink. On the fifth day he managed the whole half-hour until the break, though he thought his cock might tear through his pants; and the men seemed to love him more than ever, so much so he got a hundred and one sweaty hugs at the end of the training session. It was possibly the most sensual experience outside of actual intercourse that Kurn had ever experienced. He could still feel those hugs as he’d headed for the bathhouse late that night, and it was almost with reluctance that he lowered himself into the scented, swirling waters of the large, dark bath. Perhaps some of that sweat had soaked into him, and he wasn’t washing it all away, he though. His stone-hard erection certainly hoped so. It felt massive in the oiled and heated waters—why was that, anyway?
He didn’t have long to think about it before he realized he wasn’t alone in the bathhouse after all.
Ogan set about unbuttoning his jerkin as he watched Kurn, waiting for a reply. His lips were curved is silent acknowledgement of what all men of Scarfe must know by now: that Kurn was a drunkard, only his liquor was not wine or spirits, but men. Strong, capable men with deft hands and broad shoulders and bright, knowing eyes. Men like Ogan, Commander of the Sword-Elite, a man who now knew the intimate sounds of Kurn’s climax better than all of Aleff.
“It… has its appeal,” Kurn said weakly, watching Ogan undress. The jerkin came with a shrug, dropping out of sight to the shadowed platform, and Ogan became a granite edifice of thick, sculpted muscle overrun with thick, short hairs of the same dark-earth brown as his close-cropped hair and his day’s growth of beard. Kurn’s breath seemed to desert him. “Are you… bathing? Also?” he almost whispered.
Ogan’s curled lips bloomed into a smile. “You may not know the ways of the city, Kurn of the mountains,” he said, reaching for the fastening of his breeches. “But I think you know this a public bathhouse.”
Kurn gulped. If he kept talking, he would not be simply ogling like a mindless creature of… even in that moment, the pressure came to him. The beast knew his need—and because his mighty erection was hidden by the dark water and wafting mists there was nothing to stop it. It would be here in moments. Kurn slid down as little in the water, so that only his upper chest and above were exposed to the light of the braziers.
Ogan was still working the fastenings of his breeches. Kurn couldn’t quite believe what was happening. “You came to bathe here, now,” Kurn said, feeling as though his wits must be occluded by the bath vapors. Then he remembered he had been told Ogan’s address by the messenger who had arranged the training sessions, in case Kurn should need to meet him. “You do not even live near here!” he exclaimed. “Your house is on the other side of the city.”
Ogan nodded. “I found the bathhouse nearest your rooms, and bribed the keeper to tell me your habitual bathing times,” he said, as if such inquiries were both customary and trivial. He looked around at the empty rooms and the sliver visible through the curtains of the equally empty main space beyond. “Very late,” he observed. “Another habit of the mountains?”
“But—why?” Kurn asked, mystified.
Ogan dropped his breeches, revealing his complete, nude form in all its towering, brawny splendor. “I came to find you, bowmaster,” Ogan said.
The beast came upon him then, and Kurn gasped loudly as it swallowed his cock under the water. Ogan reacted viscerally, a shudder of pleasure seeming to run visibly through him. His cock, already heavy and half-aroused, started swelling rapidly to a stiff, engorged state until struck straight out from Ogan’s stone-carved form like a wide, flat precipice. In his current intensely aroused state, as his beast began his slow torture upon his own sensitive, stone-hard price, the expanding presence of Ogan’s cock seemed to fill Kurn’s vision. His eyes followed it as Ogan moved, lowering himself effortlessly into the heady waters and shifting to stand directly over Kurn, the rippling bath lapping at the soldier’s thick upper thighs and hairy balls.
Kurn was panting now, his muscular chest heaving from the dual stimulation of the fleshsock’s expert attentions to his cock below and the momentous, ball-churning, heart-quickening presence of Ogan looming over him, his massive cock jutting straight at Kurn. He swallowed again, staring wide-eyed and unable to speak or even to think.
“I find you beautiful, Kurn of the mountains,” Ogan said. “I am drawn to you as to no man I have ever lusted for, not even the Defender. I am obsessed with you. My cock hardens for you as instantly as yours does for me and my men. I think about you when I take my training breaks, alone in my quarters, five or six or ten times a day. It is you I want. Do you understand?”
The beast understood, too, it seemed, and approved, because in that moment it did that strange internal double twist with the tongues that Kurn could not even describe but that always drove him to a near frenzy.
“I want to fill you with my cock,” Ogan said brutally. “First your mouth, and then your ass.”
“Y-yes,” Kurn said. It was the only word left to him.
Suddenly Ogan was straddling him, the musky scent of his erection right in Kurn’s face. Kurn whimpered, and the beast increased its tempo, knowing that it must now work in concert with Ogan and that Kurn would not, could not possibly last, though even if they spent now it was clear the night would be far from over. Ogan leaned forward, positioning his meaty hands on the rim of the wooden bath to either side of Kurn’s square shoulders. Inch by inch he moved his crotch forward, until the moist tip brushed against Kurn’s lips.
Against his own cock, the beast stilled, then mimicked exactly the same sensation: the head of Kurn’s raging cock brushing against lightly bearded lips. Kurn shivered, already anticipating what he was about to experience.
His lips parted and he mouthed the tangy head. Below, the beast did the same, pressing invisible lips over the head of Kurn’s cock. He whimpered again. His tongue lolled tentatively around the head and upper shaft in his mouth, and, at exactly the same time, around his own cockhead and upper shaft.
“That’s right,” Ogan said. “That’s good. You’re going to make me cum soon, and then I’ll be ready—ready to fuck you hard and long and deep.” As if to emphasize his words, Ogan slid his giant cock steadily into Kurn’s mouth, and Kurn felt his big, heavy cock seeming to slide into his mouth at the same time. He sucked on Ogan’s huge cock and in effect on his own. His tongue twisted around Ogan’s shaft and his as he sucked, again, and again, and he and Ogan groaned in unison.
“That’s good,” Ogan repeated huskily, and Kurn felt a thrill that he could have an effect on such a man. “So good. I’m close already, Kurn. I’m going to give you my seed, so much seed. So hard, so much,” he babbled.
Kurn took the cock deeper, and he felt himself swallowing around both cockheads as he sucked and twisted his lips and tongue. “Yes!” Ogan said. “Yes! Do that!” Kurn kept it up, bringing both of them closer and closer to orgasm, until suddenly Ogan shouted Kurn’s name. Kurn pulled back and dived onto Ogan’s cock and his own desperate prick all at once, sucking hard and drawing his tongue up the shaft in the way he liked, and then suddenly they were both cumming, releasing geysers of hot seed in utter unison. They both orgasmed hard, again and again, and it seemed like minutes passed before the euphoria settled over them and the release tapered off. Panting hard, Ogan eventually pulled his heavy, barely-limp cock out of Kurn’s mouth and fell to his knees on either side of Kurn’s hips. His hot breath gusted across Kurn’s face, and then they were kissing, though incompletely and with mouths wide open, as they were both still out of breath.
After a while of this Kurn found that they weren’t kissing anymore and that Ogan was instead nuzzling at the side of his face, his thick stubble surprisingly soft against Kurn’s cheek. Kurn checked the status of his private parts and discovered his cock was floating free in the still-warm water: the beast must have gone home to sleep, despite the fact that it must have sensed another round was coming even if it hadn’t grasped the exact meaning of Ogan’s promised two-pronged attack.
Kurn found himself strangely disappointed. He realized, to his surprise, that he wanted Ogan to have discovered the beast on him. He wanted to be caught.
Ogan was murmuring along Kurn’s jaw—guttural, half-articulated promises of giving Kurn a good, soldierly fuck, Kurn realized. Kurn found a hairy spot just below Ogan’s ear and kissed it.
“Let’s go back to my rooms, commander,” he whispered roughly. “You’re not done with me yet.”
Ogan pulled back enough to leer at Kurn. It was a leer that communicated not merely an ordinary, passing lust, but a consuming desire, to be pursued relentlessly and inexhaustibly, possibly for weeks and months and years to come.
“I’m not even started with you, bowmaster,” Ogan growled. Kurn smiled so wide Ogan couldn’t help but kiss that smile right off his face; only they both found that he wasn’t completely successful in that endeavor, Kurn’s smile being not only persistent but infectious, too.
Kurn felt oddly self-conscious as he strolled with the burly swordmaster through the deserted streets of Scarfe. Though it was a warm night the air felt cool on Kurn’s exposed torso. After they had climbed out of the bath and swiftly dried themselves with soft towels, Ogan, who had not taken his eyes off of Kurn the whole time, had donned only his breeches, and Kurn had followed suit, pulling on his trousers and sandals and leaving his blouse draped over his forearm as they exited the establishment and passed into the starlit streets.
They did not speak until they entered the public square and passed two members of the city watch on patrol. Though members of a different service they saluted Ogan nonetheless. “Commander,” they said, each with a forearm diagonally across their chests. Ogan nodded, and they turned to Kurn and gave him the same salute. “Bowmaster,” they said, then passed by them, continuing their patrol.
Kurn stopped and stared after them in surprise. “They know me?” he said in a low voice.
“Of course.” Ogan threw a pleasantly heavy arm around Kurn’s bare, solid shoulders, and they continued toward Kurn’s lodgings. “The tale of your valor fighting alongside the Sword-Elite is widely told. I have even heard the Defender himself tell the tale,” Ogan explained as they walked. “Anyone who has his favor is known the length and breadth of the city. And…” Ogan seemed to hesitate.
“And…?” Kurn repeated suspiciously.
Ogan grinned down at him. “Come now, bowmaster,” he said, “surely you can guess the kinds of tales my men have shared about you in the alehouses and brothels of the warriors’ precinct?”
“Uggh,” Kurn groaned. “I’ll bet I can. They say that though I am master of my bow I am ruled by my sword, don’t they?”
“They say… how shall I put this? That you are as skilled as you are brave… and as randy as you are well-made and beautiful.” Ogan sounded amused.
“By the stones of Orest,” Kurn swore. The company he thought he’d gained the trust of had been laughing at the horny mountain rustic the whole time. “Your men will be the death of me, Ogan.” A terrible thought occurred to him. “Does duuriy! even mean ‘brother’, like you said?” he asked.
Ogan laughed. “In a manner of speaking,” he intoned, now even more amused.
Kurn wasn’t sure he wanted to hear the whole story, but he growled “Out with it” anyway.
A loud clopping of hooves intruded on their conversation. Kurn turned to look down the thoroughfare behind them, expecting to spot a trader with a cart doing some overnight shifting of merchandise, or perhaps a messenger heading out from the citadel on a mission from the Defender. Instead he saw a pair of handsome, well-muscled centaurs, evidently a little drunk and with their arms wrapped around each other’s human torsos, trotting unevenly and (Kurn thought) a little too fast down the cobblestone street. Ogan drew them to one side, and the two rattled by them and then turned surprisingly deftly onto a side street not far ahead of them, in the direction of the inns known for catering to the many nonhuman travelers that passed through the merchant city on a regular basis. The sound of their hooves swiftly faded into the night as Kurn and Ogan found themselves alone again on the empty road.
As Ogan, still with his powerful arm around Kurn’s shoulders, nudged them into resuming their walk, Kurn felt a strange resonance with the centaurs. Though not the worse for liquor as the centaurs were, he and Ogan were nonetheless two well-muscled, bare-torsoed late-night companions, making their way through a strange city to somewhere more private and intimate. Well—perhaps the city was not so strange to Ogan, though the ex-guardsman’s nearly-imperceptible accent did suggest he was not originally from Scarfe. But Kurn realized he was unlike the centaur couple in one glaring respect: reticence. As at the training grounds on those first few days, he was being embraced, metaphorically and literally, but he was holding back from embracing in return.
That would not do. He could not let the people of Scarfe think that he, or mountain folk in general, were stand-offish and aloof, as he had once heard was said of them. Transferring his shirt to the arm furthest from Ogan, he used his now-freed arm to hug Ogan tightly around his flanks, just below the wide flare of his upper back. Ogan acknowledged the gesture with a squeeze that brought Kurn closer to him for a moment, then picked up his tale.
“According to an ancient legend,” he said, his deep voice sounding well-suited to the storytelling, “there was once a company of men cursed by an enemy mage to endless mutual lust and arousal. The mage, you see, was sure that this would effectively distract the warriors, allowing the enemy to easily take their city. But the spell he thought would win them the war ended up being the enemy’s undoing, for the soldiers of the city of Duura bonded over their shared lust, their extreme sexual readiness, their dedication to the perfection of the male physique, and their abiding love of cock. And thus through their deep and carnal camaraderie they became the Duuriy: the unstoppable and invincible cockbrothers of Duura.”
Kura snorted. “I… believe I am familiar with that curse,” he observed wryly after a moment.
“As are we all, cockbrother,” Ogan chuckled.
As they turned onto the narrow lane that led down to toward his cousin’s house, the night noises of the wharves rising to meet them, Kurn tried to sound diffident as he asked, “The company of the Sword-Elite is all human, and so is most of Scarfe—are you superstitious here about mythical races and… beasts?”
“Hardly,” Ogan said. “Many races come here and are warmly greeted by traders and townspeople. You should have seen how readily we embraced the Defender… and none of us had ever seen a Huuman before. I will certainly never forget our first meeting,” he added wistfully.
“Really? Was there much ‘embracing’?” Kurn teased. He said it a little more tartly that he’d intended—he found he did not like the idea of any kind of special intimacy shared between the swordsman and Lord Griffin; though he acknowledged to himself, having met the Huuman, how difficult it would have been to resist.
But Ogan shook his head. “I’ll admit I found him immensely attractive,” Ogan said. “And he only had four arms that day. But as you may know, the Defender gave his heart to Lord Wass long ago, and it remains safely in the blacksmith’s keeping.” Kurn noted the appreciation of their exclusive dedication in Ogan’s voice with interest. Perhaps for all his talk of cock and lust, Ogan was a romantic. What had he said in the baths? His cock hardened for Kurn as for no other man, he had sworn. A declaration of lust only, or was it more?
“And… mythical beasts?” Kurn pressed. “How does Scarfe by them?”
Ogan glanced down at him, his bearded lips quirking. “Why do you ask, cockbrother?”
They were approaching the narrow row house where Kurn was staying. Kurn felt his stomach fluttering with anticipation, and his half-engorged cock was rapidly stiffening to full arousal. “I think,” he said, “you may be about to find out.”
Kurn had lowered his trousers for many a man, but almost always there was something illicit about the encounter that stoked his excitement. Here, in his own rooms—and they were not evcen his, but borrowed from a cousin—with a man who craved more than a quick suck from him, Kurn was unexpectedly wrong-footed. He tossed the shirt he was carrying onto the rumpled bed, then, trying for a salacious grin, he turned to Ogan with his back to the kitchen table (which he knew to be sufficiently sturdy), reaching for the button on his waistband—
Ogan was already naked.
Kurn gaped at the hairy, thickly muscled man with the tree-trunk cock leering at him from his bedroom doorway, his own hand arrested in the act of undoing his own lower garments. “How—?” he stammered. “Are your breeches and boots as illusory as the webs of Ralltura?”
Ogan grinned wider. He nodded to a clothes basket by the door into which Ogan’s unlaced boots and loose breeches had been hastily tossed, before taking a step toward Kurn, looming over him so that Kurn could feel his warmth and power. “The Sword-Elite have many skills, bowmaster,” Ogan said in a low, rumbly voice.
Kurn’s mouth went dry. He remembered Ogan’s promise to fill him with his cock, and suddenly there was nothing else in all the Seven Realms he needed more. His heart hammering in his chest, he felt the urgent pressure of his fleshsock begging for him to free his prick and allow it to give him pleasure. “Before we… before I disrobe,” Kurn said in a quavering voice, “there is perhaps something I should tell you first.”
“No more words,” Ogan said. He knocked away Kurn’s hand and grasped the fastenings of Kurn’s trousers, his knuckles brushing the hot skin of Kurn’s tight waist. He could rip these trousers off me like they were parchment, he thought distractedsly. But Ogan bent and kissed Kurn slow and deep, and Kurn lost track of his trousers, his intended warning, and everything but his need and his lust. When they broke the kiss, Kurn’s trousers were around his ankles, still intact and not torn asunder, and his member was huge, hard, and pressing against the side of Ogan’s heavy cock as though they were two duelers crossing swords.
Unexpectedly, though his erection was exposed, his beast had not appeared around it. He still felt it pressing against his mind, whimpering with need. Why—?
Then he remembered. Not while people can see you!
The injunction that prevented the beast from appearing in front of a hundred witnesses was now hindering from coming to him before a single lover. The creature knew this moment was different. It knew, at some unreasoning, inchoate level, that Kurn wanted to share this secret with Ogan. But Kurn had curbed the blanket permission he had given the beast, and it could not come.
Kurn was excited. He would open himself fully to Ogan and the beast. Wait, he told the creature.
Even as he formed the instruction in his mind, Ogan turned him around to face the sturdy kitchen table, kicking the trousers out from under his sandaled feet as he did so. His blood rushing in anticipation, he managed to get out, “I have oil. On the shelf by the—”
“I see it,” Ogan interrupted, his voice rough with all the things he intended. In a mere moment he was back, bending Kurn forward with a hand between his shoulder-blades. He grasped the sides of the heavy table and closed his eyes. As the first brush of oil slid along his hole, he spoke to the desperate beast again. Almost, he told it. Almost.
A thick finger pressed against his opening and then pushed in without tease or tarry. It drove sure and steady, deeper and deeper, and Kurn gasped, his heart slamming against his chest. His heard cock felt like it swelled to match his ramping desire. Almost, he sent, barely able hold his thoughts together. The finger slid out, then plowed in again, and again.
The fourth time it was joined by a second, equally thick finger. Kurn grunted. He wasa losing patience with Ogan’s diligent preparation. He needed Ogan’s cock. Ogan had forbidden further speech, but Kurn was ready to break silence at any moment. He needed to be fucked, and he needed to call the beast. He needed—!
Ogan must have sensed Kurn’s urgency, or perhaps he felt the same. The fingers left him, leaving him empty and ready. Motions behind him, the sound of oil on flesh. Then: the wide, blunt head of Ogan’s massive prick nuzzled against his hole demanding entrance.
Kurn ordered his thoughts. With a calmness that belied his aching desire, he told the creature at last: When I am alone with Ogan, when we are in need of you… come to us.
Instantly the fleshsock was wrapped around his huge, hard-as-stone cock, mimicking the sensation of being in a hot tight hole. In that very same instant, Kurn pressed his impressive, equally hard member into Kurn’s own hot, tight hole, pushing deeper and deeper into Kurn’s heat, filling him as he had promised.
Kurn let out a moan as he felt himself fucking and behing fucked at the same time. As at the baths, the beast matched Ogan’s actions, contracting toward Kurn’s cockhead when Ogan pulled back and swallowing his whole member when Ogan plowed in deep. Its gift for multiple pleasures, however, made it seem like Kurn was fucking the most amazing ass ever, an ass that could squeeze and twist and milk at will. Ogan seemed as impressed as Kurn at what he was feeling. “Oh, by the seed of Nyden!” he swore, breaking his own no-speech rule. “What kind of magic ass is this?” He drove in again and let out a cry in tanden my Kurn’s, as he felt the euphoria of Ogan’s huge cock filling him combined with the incomparable twisting and wringing and the thousand microgratifications of the beast’s ministrations. With the shreds of rational thought left to him, Kurn realized that Ogan was sounding almost as though he was feeling the same impossible pleasurings from Kurn’s ass that Kurn was feeling on his big, hard, grateful cock. Was the beast somehow passing the sensations to Ogan, too?
Another pull-back, another thrust, and again Ogan and Kurn cried out together. “I don’t understand—!” Ogan huffed. “How are you doing this?!”
Another lunge, another shared cry. “Bowmasters… have many… skills!” Kurn panted.
Ogan managed a laugh. Two more thrusts, faster, faster. Neither of them could endure much longer. “I—I am—!” Ogan sputtered.
Kurn was close too, so close he was afraid he might release before his partner. “Yes! Fill me, Ogan! Do it!” Kurn cried. So commanded, Ogan pushed in and out, again, again, once more, then drove deep, deep into Kurn, every move mirrored by the beast. Ogan froze, and then suddenly they were both cumming, hard and fast, both of them shooting long hot spurts of cum, Ogan into Kurn, Kurn into his hungry beast as their minds soared with ecstasy.
Kurn slumped forward, elbows on the table, still climaxing as if he could not stop, and Ogan bent over him, shooting into him over and over and over.
Kurn’s consciousness frayed. At some point Ogan guided them through unseen space, his hands on Kurn’s hips and his log of a cock still deep inside Kurn. They fell sideways onto Kurn’s soft bed, only it felt to Kurn like he kept falling, swallowed by his beast while, at the same time, cradled and skewered by the commander of the Sword-Elite.
Kurn surfaced from a dream about a meadow filled with eager cocksucking fleshsocks to find that his beast was, in fact upon him, suckling his stiff erection even in his sleep, as had often been the case of late. He was curled up against Ogan with his head resting on his hairy chest, the swordsman’s powerful arm wrapped immutably around his muscled but smaller frame.
Kurn smiled. It sounded from Ogan’s snuffling and the littler pleasure-sounds he was making that he was being tended to as well, no doubt in a very vivid dream in which Kurn returned the favor Ogan had given him in the baths—
When he looked down to steal a glimpse of Ogan’s giant cock, however, Kurn got an unexpected surprise. There was his beast, wrapped around Ogan’s cock and giving him all of the pleasure it could give him. But how could that be, since he felt it on his cock at that very moment? He looked down at his own erection, and sure enough it was engulfed exactly as Ogan’s was. Both of them were being sucked off by twin cocksucking fleshsocks!
The beast tending to Kurn intensified its pleasuring, driving Kurn closer to climax, and Ogan came awake moaning. “Oh baby, that’s so—” he murmured. Another twist/multilick combination, and Ogan and Kurn gasped together. “Oh, yes!” Ogan slurred. Kurn was close, and he knew Ogan was too. Impulsively he slid his mouth along Ogan’s beefy chest and found a nipple. He seized on it, using a well-practiced move to tweak, nibble, and suck on it all at once. “Oh, moon and sun, yes!” Ogan shouted, and all at once they were both cumming again, climaxing like teenagers inflected with the libido of a hundred other teenagers. They came for minutes, shooting and shooting again and again into their beasts, though it felt like hours.
They collapsed together, sweaty and limp, into the depths of Kurn’s mattress, Ogan still holding him close. They drifted a while, like orgasmic flotsam.
“Ahh, now I understand about your ass,” rumbled a deep voice from the void. “Is this one a gift?”
Kurn struggled to focus. He was still snuggling with Ogan, his head cushioned on Ogan’s meaty chest, though Ogan seemed now to be sitting up a little, having perhaps put one of the pillows behind him. His attention seemed directed at the thick, tubular beast curled up asleep near his large, equally spent but still daunting prick, its twin mere inches away dozing on Kurn’s thigh near his own unexpectedly large-looking, still-slumbering cock.
When I am alone with Ogan, when we are in need of you… come to us.
It came to both of them, Kurn decided, just as he had commanded it. Maybe that’s how they reproduce? “There was only one before,” Kurn said. “They new one must be yours. Or maybe they are both ours,” he added thoughtfully.
Ogan hummed. He seemed unfazed and amenable.
“What did you mean when you said you understood about my ass?” Kurn asked.
“It’s one of the legends,” Ogan explained. He sounded like he was speaking from a place of deep contentment. “It’s said that when you fuck someone who’s being tended to be one of them, it sends the pleasures it’s giving the person you’re fucking to you as well.”
Kurn frowned. “I never heard that,” he said.
“Ah, well,” Ogan said. “Legends are mutable things. I think the gods just make up stuff and write it in the book of knowledge whenever they get bored. And then we end up with new legends that have always been there since the dawn of time.”
Kurn smiled. “That’s silly.”
“Maybe,” Ogan agreed. “Should we try for breakfast before they wake up again?”
