This week's tease comes from my contribution, Winter's Embrace, including a frisky bunch of faeries.
Bianca wrapped her in a hug and Verte looked to Grey for guidance. He merely nodded, so Verte hugged the Winter princess in return.
“You are so warm,” she mused. “Does she ever burn you?” Bianca asked Grey.
“Not since the ceremony.”
Verte knew her cheeks were coloring again. A mixture of embarrassment regarding the public nature of their first coupling and shame that she hurt him.
“Isn't that amazing?” Bianca said, touching Verte's cheek.
Grey nodded. “Just like a human.”
Bianca's cold hand caressed Verte's cheek. Her magic seemed to be locked away, so Verte smiled, glad someone was friendly. Everyone so far had been as icy as their home. When Bianca leaned forward to kiss her, however, Verte leaned back and looked around the princess to her husband.
He chuckled and shook his head. “I'm afraid you're not her type.”
Bianca looked over her shoulder, glancing up and down at her brother. “And you are?” she asked.
Verte bit her lip to avoid laughing. She tried to keep her expression neutral, but couldn't manage, not half as good as the Winter fae at hiding her emotions. She gasped when white hands cupped her bosom.
“Grey?” she asked in a squeak.
“That's enough, Bianca.”
She pulled her hands back, crossing them over her own spare chest and pouting. “Can I at least watch you some more?”
Verte's jaw dropped in surprise. The white faerie took a step toward Grey and slipped her hand under the hem of his shirt. It slid up to reveal the silvery hair on his belly. Verte's tongue flicked out to moisten her lips, keenly aware that her husband hadn't finished what he'd started. Bianca’s interruption, an inconvenience at first, grated.
“Please?” Bianca’s hand drifted down.
All the Summer faeries were related on some level. However, she wouldn't think of being sexual with one of her brothers in the royal line. Her eyes must have given her away.
“We don't share blood,” Grey explained to her. “When a new fae is born without color, they go to Mab.” Bianca knelt to kiss his exposed skin and open his pants.
“I could go,” Verte offered, turning and searching the room. There should be a door somewhere; this was a suite after all. She wasn't jealous of the white faerie. Although she'd grown more and more fond of Grey in the short time she'd known him, their marriage was arranged. She didn't imagine she held any sway over him, yet she couldn’t see herself with another faerie either. It just didn't seem right. The two she'd been with were nothing like Grey.
“Stay,” he ordered, freezing her feet to the floor.
