Finn woke to itching. His body had been languid and comfortable - every limb soft and relaxed against silky warmth but then the itching registered. On his chest, stomach and ears. But most of all his crotch.
"Ngh!" He slid one heavy hand down to scratch and his wrist was caught.
"Leave it." The low voice registered before Finn's mind was fully awake and he sat up abruptly. His breathing was still heavy with sleep and his eyes struggled to focus, scrambling back from purple skin.
There was a startled hiss before clawed fingers clamped around his nape and waist, dragging him back into a hard embrace.
Finn gasped like a fish out of water against Liler's shoulder and writhed.
A hot mouth pushed against the Human's throat and fangs scraped his skin, not quite biting but the threat was clear.
Finn froze and his eyes filled with panicked tears. He didn't want to be this sniveling mess but he was powerless against those sharp teeth.
Liler growled softly and his tail flicked over the Human's side.
Those sharp points remained against him for endless moments and Finn's entire existence narrowed in on the hot breath against his skin and the saliva starting to trickle down his collarbone.
His hands, gripping the feline's ribs, began to cramp from the constant pressure and he was forced to spread his fingers. His heart was beating so fast he thought he could taste copper and the adrenaline was overwhelming.
His eyes fluttered, legs slipping from their half-crouched position and sliding against the blankets beneath them.
Liler growled again, but the pressure of his teeth lifted and a rough tongue licked up his spilled saliva.
Finn gasped and shook, damp palms slipping. Liler shifted the arm around Finn's waist and tucked their bodies closer.
"Calm." Liler murmured and a hand stroked gently down Finn's trembling side.
"Calm." Warm lips pressed beneath Finn's ear and ran down his throat. A soft white tail curled around his hips.
The Ytra shifted slightly and their groins touched.
Finn gave a strangled whine but Liler simply pressed him closer, until his thighs bracketed the feline's hips.
"No fear." Liler whispered, heartbeat steady against Finn's chest.
Finn caved with a small sob, sagging forward and squeezing his eyes against useless tears.
They remained that way for long moments - until Finn's tears dried, leaving his eyes sore, and his head rested heavily on Liler's shoulder.
The itching on his skin had steadily increased and he squirmed lightly, causing the arms around him to harden further. Finn made a choked sound of complaint.
"It itches." He whispered.
"...where?" Liler's voice sounded deeper through his skin.
"Everywhere." Finn mumbled. "Mostly..." He stopped himself and swallowed tightly.
Liler's hand smoothed over Finn's buttock and pushed him forward. The firm pressure of skin against skin did ease the itching somewhat, but being held against the dick of his abuser had Finn's eyes burning again.
"It's healing." Liler said.
Finn sniffled and strained his neck as far from the feline as he could.
Liler's other hand caught the Human's head and turned it until their eyes met, noses nearly touching.
"How long are we doing this?" Liler bit, slit pupils cutting into Finn's.
The Human's lip wobbled pathetically and he closed his eyes in self-disgust. He was drained, hurting and if he spoke now he would break.
A hard mouth crushed onto his and a ruthless tongue pushed past his lips. His sob was muffled and claws pushed into his scalp, nearly breaking the skin.
Liler pulled back and Finn gasped wetly. Their brows pressed and he shut his eyes tight.
"We are brothers." The feline growled. "I am you and you are me. We care for each other. We're loyal to each other." He paused for a beat, then barked. "Open your eyes!"
Sharp claws bit punishingly into his skin and Finn reluctantly obeyed.
Heart-of-flame blue eyes seared into him.
"You don't abandon me. You don't turn away. We are pack and I will do anything for you. As you will for me!" Liler snarled the last part, white fangs flashing and Finn quaked. Slitted eyes examined his face intently and the claws eased.
"Noni told me you're different." The feline continued in a softer tone. "Your world was different. Your customs...but you have to adapt." Purple lashes swept down as Liler eased forward, whispering the next words against Finn's mouth. "If you respect me, I'll respect you. Open up."
In a daze, Finn obeyed and the Ytra's tongue surged in, not easing up in the slightest. His kiss was harsher and more demanding than Noni's or even Iadin's. Completely overwhelmed, Finn relaxed his jaw and let his tongue brush softly against Liler's. Never trying to overtake - simply tasting.
After awhile the feline drew back, lips flushed a dark lilac with a hint of red. He blinked slowly at Finn, eyes calmer.
"You're soft." Liler whispered. "Again."
Finn let his head be tilted and opened. Insanity seemed to overtake. Or something like it, he thought distantly, as his hand slid up and brushed over Liler's velvety spine. A startling purr erupted and Finn's second hand joined the first.
"Mmm." The moan was uncontrollable and Finn gasped against Liler's lips, shocked at himself. His dick stirred.
Liler purred deeply and ground his own hardening cock against the smaller boy. Shards of pain tore through Finn's pierced skin and he jerked, tearing his mouth away. He released the silky fur and pressed a defensive hand against the feline's chest.
Liler snarled, gripped the Human's hair and forced their lips back together. A hand on Finn's backside crushed him forward.
Agony ripped into him and a muffled shout tore through his throat.
The grip in his hair caused fire to race down his spine and a damp cock rubbed against him over and over. Pain and pleasure melted together and a particularly hard thrust was accompanied by a rush of tingles.
His dick pulsed and he bucked hard against the pressure.
The feline pulled back, startled. They were both panting heavily as their eyes met and Liler's expression transformed into a dark smirk. Finn shuddered and molten pleasure stirred in his belly, tightening his balls and running through his cock until his tip felt hot.
Liler leaned back against the wall, purple strands falling into his half-closed eyes as he gripped Finn's ass with both hands.
They froze. Iadin stood in the doorway, gold eyes wide. Noni was cradled in his arms and blinked at them tiredly, pink lips swollen.
"He isn't healed enough for that!" Iadin exclaimed, schooling his expression into its usual haughtiness. "Separate."
Liler's ears flattened and he growled, dick a throbbing heat against Finn's. The Human bit his lip hard and his thighs shook as he struggled not to thrust forward.
Iadin's eyes narrowed to burning slits.
"Now." The Zithan breathed dangerously and Noni flinched in his arms.
Finn braced both hands against the black floor and eased away. The Ytra snarled and yanked him right back.
"Enough!" Iadin shouted and Finn was suddenly airborne, sailing through the room and crashing into the bed.
Liler's yowl was abruptly cut off. Finn shakily lifted his head in time to see Iadin wrap his hand around the feline's throat and drag him out the door.
Finn shuddered out a breath and collapsed against the bed. His balls still ached but the pleasure was fading and agony was replacing it. He moaned into the dark green sheets.
Gentle hands ran soothingly over his skin and Noni settled softly against him. Cold jewelry touched his back and Finn turned his head slightly to meet the feline's exhausted gaze.
Noni's triangular ears, nipples and belly button were all pierced with silver and sapphire blue gems. Before Finn's eyes could drift lower Noni tugged the luxurious sheet around them.
"I know." The feline murmured, curling his arm around Finn's shoulders. The brush of metal against Finn's thigh answered his unspoken question.
Noni's eyes were barely open and tear tracks had dried on his cheeks.
"I know..." He repeated softly.
Finn blinked at him, brow tense with pain.
"Oh, Noni..." He breathed and lifted a trembling hand to brush over the smaller boy's velvety cheek.
Noni managed a strained smile in response and his tail ran over Finn's calf.
"You and Liler are finally getting along." Noni whispered and smiled warmer at Finn's averted eyes and burning cheeks.
He didn't know if "getting along" was the right phrase...
A thumb brushed over the corner of Finn's sore mouth and Noni sighed, as if a weight had been lifted.
"I'm glad." Slit eyes flicked down to the grey gems sparkling on the Human's chest. "They suit you." Noni murmured and peered through his sooty lashes at Finn. "They're like your eyes."
Finn blinked in surprise and managed a genuine smile. Noni's eyes slid shut and a clawed hand patted across the sheets until it found Finn's and laced their fingers.
"We're together now." Noni whispered.
Finn closed his eyes and struggled to breathe evenly through the burning pain. Nevertheless a different kind of warmth had settled in his chest.
"Together." Finn breathed.
He must have slept again because rustling woke him to Noni writhing against the sheets, tail whipping and delicate face scrunched up.
"Noni?" Finn reached out to still the feline's movements and the smaller boy moaned miserably into the covers.
"It hurts! It itches!" Noni wailed and turned pained eyes to Finn.
The Human's body still smarted, particularly his groin, but it was bearable. It felt as natural as breathing to wrap his arms around Noni and pull him close.
"That means it's healing." Finn said, remembering Liler's words earlier. A brief glance around the chamber confirmed the feline hadn't yet returned and worry tightened his gut.
A muffled sob brought his attention back to Noni and he brushed his hand gently over the smaller boy's inky hair, carefully avoiding his pierced ears.
Noni turned into his hand eagerly, silently begging the Human to ease his pain. Compassion surged in Finn's chest and he thought back to Liler's methods. They hadn't helped, exactly, but pressure had eased the itching.
He folded the feline into a hug and pressed their pierced chests gently together.
"Nnn!" The feline pushed against him.
Finn used his knee to ease Noni's leg to the side and lowered himself fully. The feline gasped and his legs hooked around Finn's ass to press them firmly together.
"This helps." Noni gritted. "A little." He smiled tremulously up at Finn. "Thank you."
Warmth bloomed and Finn smiled, kissing the feline's soft cheek. Noni tilted his head back and Finn kissed down his sharp jaw to a slim neck.
Noni sighed and pressed their groins tentatively closer, relieving his discomfort.
The Human continued delivering butterfly kisses until Noni murmured and pushed his neck up. Finn opened his mouth obligingly, kissing deeper and flicking his tongue against the skin.
Noni's breathing was deepening and Finn felt the familiar stirrings in his own groin. A stab of pain reminded him of his violent humping session earlier and the price he was currently paying for it. He lifted his head and raised his hips slightly.
"Noooo!" Noni yowled, arms and legs desperately drawing the Human back.
"I need you Finn! Help *yip* me!" Noni stared up at him through tearing eyes, pink mouth trembling. Finn's breath caught and he surged forward, fitting his mouth back against that slender neck and sucking hard.
Earlier fears sought to taint the moment but Finn brushed them aside. All that mattered was that Noni was sweet, perfect and too adorable for his own good.
The feline gushed out a relieved breath and delved his fingers into Finn's curls.
"Do it!" Noni whispered fervently.
Finn nipped lightly with his teeth and Noni's purr roared into life.
"Do it, Finn! Please."
Finn bit down and Noni's cock jerked against him.
But the Human didn't have fangs. He'd hurt the beautiful boy beneath him. Tearing skin with dull square teeth would be agony. Instead, he bit down a safe amount and held until his jaw ached, then released and sucked firmly.
Noni gasped and writhed, urging him to bite harder again and again.
Finn finally drew back and brushed his thumb gently against Noni's cheek.
"No." He said softly.
Noni stilled and stared up at him with a dazed expression.
"No?" The feline croaked.
Finn smiled and flashed his teeth. "No fangs, Noni. I'd hurt you."
Noni wonderingly ran his hands up Finn's arms and cupped his face.
"I completely forgot." Noni whispered, his own fangs peaking out between his full lips. "I forgot you're not..."
He paused and smiled at Finn so tenderly the Human's breath caught.
"Do you know. I'm happy they caught me." Noni murmured, "Not for my family. Losing a member. There is nothing worse." His large eyes filled but remained solemnly fixed on Finn. "But knowing you...I'm happy, Finn. Unbelievably happy. To know you."
Finn's eyes misted. Touched beyond words he dropped his head and pressed a kiss to that pink mouth.
"Mmm." Noni wrapped Finn in his arms, legs and tail folding around him.
Their kiss was unbearably sweet and it sent little sparks of pleasure blooming in his chest. Noni tasted wonderful - like warmth and happiness and more than Finn could have ever hoped.
"My Finn." Noni whispered in his ear and brushed his hand up the Human's hairless spine. "We'll keep you warm. Always."
