If you missed the first teas­er, you can learn how Gunner and Sav’ge meet HERE.

Given the size of the aliens, Gunner almost expect­ed the inside of the ship to be larg­er than the out­side . Alas, the physics appeared nor­mal. Much like a sub­ma­rine, every pos­si­ble inte­ri­or space was account­ed for and uti­lized. The entry­way spilled into sev­er­al rows of large seat­ing, them­selves sta­tioned behind what were clear­ly a pilot and copi­lot’s chair at the front with a large, curved win­dow to see out. A hall­way in the oth­er direc­tion split into sev­er­al rooms and was, of course, built to Drakkon sizes. Three peo­ple could stand across in the hall­way and not touch shoulders.

Gunner moved down the hall, peer­ing into what proved to be stor­age and elec­tron­ics rooms. At the end of the hall was a Drakkon-sized bar­racks, with stacked bunks and trunks at the end of each bed.

It was here Sav’ge found him, shoved him from behind between two bunks so they were out of view of the hall, and pressed him against the wall, all knees and claws.

Gunner spread his hands on the wall, peer­ing over his shoul­der at the mas­sive Drakkon behind him. His heart raced with adren­a­line and he itched to pull his Hook, but Sav’ge’s dry breath on the back of his neck also made Gunners cock instant­ly hard. Frankly it was all very confusing.

Sav’ge’s claws pricked through Gunner’s shirt, on the edges of his armored vest.

Listen to me very care­ful­ly,” Sav’ge said with a low growl.

Gunner’s breath hitched.

You can’t keep us from leav­ing.” Sav’ge lift­ed a hand and stroked one black claw down Gunners cheek . “You can’t stop us from doing any­thing.” Savage shoved his knee between Gunner’s legs to spread them. “We’re big­ger. We’re stronger. We have pow­er you can’t imagine.”

Heat flared where Sav’ge’s hands pressed into Gunner.

Gunner tried very hard not to grind against the wall. Did the alien know what he was doing to him? Did he even under­stand arousal?

Sav’ge hissed and his forked tongue flick­ered, tast­ing the air. Then he chuck­led deeply.

Oh, he understood.

How good was a Drakkon’s sense of smell?

Sav’g’s pin­ning hand pressed him hard­er against the wall. One of the oth­er three gripped Gunner’s thigh and very slow­ly dragged the claws upward toward his ass.

Gunner could­n’t help but squirm. His cock throbbed in his pants and with a lit­tle more atten­tion this was going to get very messy very quick­ly. “What… do you want?”

One of Savage’s hands tracked down Gunner’s side to his hip. “Do you want me to stop?”

Gunner shook his head and whis­pered, “Don’t stop.” His knees went a lit­tle weak. He’d known from the first glance that Sav’ge could take con­trol. But so soon? It made Gunner’s head spin.

Answer my ques­tions and I will con­tin­ue.” Sav’ge leaned clos­er and Gunner got an eye­full of hooked teeth. They sent shiv­ers down his spine. “Is there land on this plan­et your gov­ern­ment does not control?”

All… all the land is con­trolled by some­one. If not our gov­ern­ment, then anoth­er one.” Really? He want­ed to talk diplo­ma­cy? Now?

Sav’ge moved the claws on Gunner’s thigh up to his ass and squeezed. A reward.

Where can we go that your gov­ern­ment will not both­er us?”

Gunner hissed as the grip­ping hands tight­ened. “Nowhere. Nowhere.” The squeez­ing paused. Was Sav’ge going to stop? Gunner’s eyes flut­tered closed. He didn’t want it to stop. “You can make it com­pli­cat­ed If you land in the mid­dle of a city though.”

Another clawed hand grabbed his oth­er ass cheek and squeezed, grind­ing Gunner into the wall while the first stayed firm­ly on his shoul­der. Having four hands was absolute­ly unfair.

Tell me more. How do we make it com­pli­cat­ed? We need time.”

Ah, ah I don’t know.” The hands on Gunners ass dis­ap­peared. Gunner’s head spun. “Wait, wait. If you stay out of sight so the pub­lic does­n’t know about you, but you’re still in the mid­dle of a city, that would be weird for the gov­ern­ment to deal with. They don’t want to let peo­ple know you exist.”

The claws came back. They squeezed Gunner’s reward. The hand on Gunner’s hip inched around toward the front. Gunner pant­ed against the wall, hot as fire and uncar­ing if Sav’ge knew it. Just a lit­tle more to the right…

Tell me exact­ly where to land this ship.” Sav’ge flicked his tongue onto Gunner’s neck. He whis­pered, “Tell me where and I will… ” Sav’ge’s hips shoved into Gunner’s ass and some­thing bulged there Gunner had­n’t seen before. Something very prominent.

Oh fuck.

His entire body throbbed.

No one had ever focused on him like this. It was overwhelming.

City–City Park. Big open space, prob­a­bly 100 acres, some of it is for­est. But it’s right in the mid­dle of the city which means the mil­i­tary can’t just move in. You guys have anti­grav­i­ty, do you have stealth? Can you go invis­i­ble? You can prob­a­bly hide there for a while.”

City Park…?” Sav’ges hips rocked into Gunner’s ass, grind­ing that deli­cious length the entire way.

Gunner’s cock leaked. He could feel it, trapped between his thigh and the wall, thick and heavy. Ready.
“Yes, Ether City Park.”

God, he was ready.

Thank you, Gunner.” Sav’ge nipped his razor teeth at Gunner’s ear. Gunner herd the ivory click together.

Then Sav’ge was gone.
