He could smell her arousal. He slid his hands underneath her, cupping her buttocks so he could raise her body into perfect alignment with his. He pressed forward, penetrating her core with one long, slow push, seeking that perfect place he now called his own, hearing her sigh and his groan when it was done.

“Wrap your legs around me,” he groaned as he dragged himself back only to thrust in again.

The sound of her sighs was a balm to his soul. Seeing Wyvern again had been a shock, to have him after the woman he loved was almost more than he could bear. He covered her mouth with his as he began to surge and draw back in an easy rhythm that they seemed to have always had. Goody moved as easily with him as if they had been lovers for years. She fit him like a glove.

He picked up the pace and she matched him as over and over he pounded into her. She called his name as she climaxed, her pussy contracting all up and down his length in the most amazing caress that sent waves of pleasure crashing over him. He continued to thrust into her, her inner walls quivering and responding to his bold stroking. Her breathing sped up and she began to make small whimpers of pleasure as another orgasm began to build within her.

Tristan held her still, not allowing her to move with him. He needed her to just accept what he was giving her and what he would take for himself. Harder and faster, he hammered her pussy, reveling in the way she responded until, as he felt her body begin to tremble and tighten around him, he gave a last, ferocious thrust deep inside her. Goody screamed in ecstasy, her pussy spasming as she clamped down hard, her legs trembling as she writhed in his hold, greedily milking his cock, savoring every bit of pleasure as he held her in his arms.

He collapsed on top of her, replete in the warmth and pleasure that still enveloped them. “I love you,” he whispered as he nuzzled her.

“I love you too,” she sighed as he rolled from her, and she cuddled against him.
