After pulling me out of the bathroom and probably thinking me crazy now, Ryker sat me down at the table where the feast of dinner was now being served. We ate, talked with other people and danced together to a few more songs. I was wisked away by both Laurren and Zachery for a dance before Ryker and I decided to call it a night. We said good night to everyone then Ryker, being the big sweetheart he was, picked me up and carried me to our room.
"What do you say," Ryker started as we walked across campus. "When we get back to the room we take a bubble bath, have some chocolate covered strawberries then cuddle up together in bed and watch a movie? Naked. Wet." He bent his head and kissed my neck. "Perhaps one of us will slip and we'll have a little fun with ourselves."
I suppressed a groan as we entered the dorm where the night guard sat keeping watch. "Oh Ryker Daae it's like you read my mind and made it even sexier and dirtier." I whispered in his ear.
He smiled and practically ran up the stairs. When we got to our room he set me on the ground and invaded my lips with a passionate kiss. "I'll go run the bath." He panted, pulling back then heading into the bathroom.
The silk wrapped around my wet body along with Rykers slick arms while his teeth carefully nibbled my earlobe, making me groan in pleasure. He placed his hands in my waist and thrust into me. His balls smacked against my butt as he rocked his hips against mine, pulling out then ramming back in. He continued this, refusing to wear out or let up. He came five times before finally pulling completely out and laying his head on my chest.
I picked up a strand of his hair and twirled it around my finger. "You OK Ryker?"
"I'll be fine." He panted out, his eyes clamped shut and his hands balled up around the sheets.
"Is it my turn to make you scream now?" I wiped sweat off my forehead and squirmed out from under Ryker. He rolled onto his back, throwing the blankets off and exposing his full self to me. Damn that man had quite the cock on him. For a seventeen year old, that was impressive. I kissed it then moved down and took the tip into my mouth and...
The theme song of Friends started playing.
I took me a minute to realize that was my phone ringing. "God dammit." I sat up and grabbed my phone from the bedside table then answered it wihtout looking at the name. "Hello?"
"Hi sweetie!" My mom greeted happily, "Guess what I found?"
"I don't know, are you and dad playing hide and seek again?"
"Well yea." I rolled my eyes. My parents were such children. "But that's not what I'm talking about."
"What'd you find?"
"My high school yearbook!" I heard her clap excitedly.
I raised my eyebrows. "Okay? and you felt the need to tell me this... why?"
"Well, you rememberthe morning you called and started asking about that Ryker kid I went to school with? I thought you might want to see him or something."
My heart started pounding in my chest and my pulse quickened. Of course I wanted to see him. I had to know what was going on here. "Mom, that would be awesome, thank you."
"You're welcome sweetie. You know, I'm actually kind of glad I found this. I forgot how dorky your father was in high school." She giggled. I hear my dad snort in the background.
"Clara, please, I'm still that dorky."
My mom laughed. "I know you are Todd. But that's why I love you. Now hush up, I'm talking to out evil spawn."
"Thanks mom." I couldn't help but smile. My parents may look like they were in their thirties but in their hearts, they were still sixteen.
"You're welcome baby. I just sent the yearbook to you."
"Wait, how?" It poofed into my lep. "Oh. Never mind."
"Honey you know we're Faries now, you should be expecting us to use more magic."
I rolled my eyes, "Okay mom I have to go. School tomorrow. Love you."
"Love you too. Sleep well."
"You too." I hung up and set my phone back on the bedside table. I cuddled up next to Ryker and started flipping through the yearbook.
"What's that?" Ryker asked, wrapping his arms around me and pulling me onto his lap."
"My moms senior yearbook. I was talking to her the other day and telling her about my friends and all and she recognized a couple names. So I'm just gonna look and see." I flipped to the senior section. I looked at all the people, their smiling faces, probably because they were happy it was senior year. "There's my mom." I pointed to her. "Clara Aldera. Can you imagine having that name in high school?"
Ryker chuckled. "It could be worse. She could have been saddled with Ryker Daae. I mean, who names a kid Ryker?"
I gnetly elbowed his stomach. "It's more common than I think you realize. Look, there's someone names Ryker." I pointed to the picture in the yearbook of Ryker then felt my stomach drop as I looked closer at it. The name was Ryker Daae. I would have recognized that indifferent look on his face anywhere. The horror in his eyes. The photo was in black and white but it was crystal clear who that was.
I swallowed the lump that had formed in my throat. "Ryker? Were you by any chance named after your father or uncle or someone?"
"No. My family would ahve taken much offense if my parents had named me after any of them."
"How old are you?"
"Then you must have an evil clone." My greatest fear was being realized. Ryker was lying to me about who he was. It made me wonder what else he was lying about.
I held the yearbook up to his face and pointed to the picture of him. "It's you Ryker! I know it's you! Now tell me the truth! How old are you?"
Ryker closed his eyes and let out a deep breath. "Yes. It's me. I'm sixty, just turned sixty-one a couple days ago, actually."
I did quick math in my head. "So you were born in 1952?"
A small nod.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
A slow shrug.
I slammed the yearbook shut and sat upright. My anger was starting to boil over. "Dammit I'm sick of these get us no where answers! I wan the fucking truth and I fucking want it now! Why the fuck didn't you tell me!?"
"Min, please, calm down."
"And stop telling me to calm down! you think I was pissed when I found your little sex toys, honey you ain't seen nothin' yet." I really needed to wokr on my anger. When I was pissed, pretty much every grammar lesson I'd ever had went straight down the toilet and my cursing increased ten-fold."
"I didn't tell you because I didn't want you to leave me." I saw tears in his eyes which tugged at my heart strings. "That's the reason no one knows anythiing about me. It's why I'm so sheltered. I've had so many people leave me in my life, my parents, my brothers, even the butler hated me! I don't want anyone else to just because they're scared of me. I can't take it anymore. I know I've done some things that I can't take back and I feel horrible but... no one understands that. I just can't..." his voice broke and tears streamed down his cheeks.
I placed my hands on his face and wiped his tears away, not caring about my own tears. "Ryker, sh. Sh. Listent to me. I love you. Okay? I love you so much. I know you've done things you regret but I also know they were in the past. And your past does not define you. If anything it makes you stronger. And you are strong, you're past made you the man you are today. I love that man, not the man from the past." I kissed him and wiped my tears away.
A small smile played on his lips. "I love you Min. Thank you."
We kissed then just lay in each others loving arms. I listened to Rykers heart beating in his chest and the steady sound of his breathing.
I was almost asleep when a hollow knock came at the door...
