His gaze was kind, though there was brutal desire behind the compassion. He wanted her. There was something animal in his demeanor, something barely restrained that should have made him dangerous. How could the desire she saw lurking beneath the caring veneer be leashed?
Somehow, it was. Hope was certain Lokmi did not lie. He would not claim her unless she agreed to it.
He was so big though. “I can’t handle what you’re, uh, equipped with.”
“You can. It might be uncomfortable to start with, but you’re made to adjust.”
“You’ve been with Earther women before?”
Lokmi shook his head. “I’ve read about your kind though. Studies and books have been written explaining how things work best between your people and mine.”
Hope crooked a brow at him. “You’ve researched how to have sex with humans?”
The Imdiko snickered. “You’re not going to fault a man for hoping, are you? I like women. There aren’t enough Kalquorian women to expect I’ll ever get to explore having a meaningful relationship with one. So yes, I tried to educate myself as much as possible on how to make an Earther woman enjoy having sex with me.”
Hope thought about it and had to laugh. “This sucks to say, but you are probably more of an expert on it than I am then. I haven’t got a clue what I’d like from a man.”
“Each woman is different. We’ll have to explore the possibilities.”
Hope considered. Another peek at Lokmi’s cocks brought a flash of dread. She was afraid of sex with him. She didn’t see how the hell it could possibly work.
Yet somehow, she felt safe with Lokmi. Something about him told Hope she was in no danger. A sense of security enveloped her as he waited patiently for her to make up her mind.
Hope liked the aura of shelter he projected, as if she might find sanctuary in his arms. The urge to explore that impression, every bit as much as sheer lust, moved her towards giving sex a try.
She made herself look over the whole package, to finally get to appreciate one of her infatuations in the bare flesh. Monstrous cocks notwithstanding, Lokmi was a sensual feast for the eyes. His body was a sculpted masterpiece, as close to perfection as she could imagine a man could be. The idea of feeling his naked flesh against hers made her insides tremble.
“If you damage me with those things, I’ll take them off you,” she warned.
A bark of laughter erupted from Lokmi. He grabbed a pillow, covering his face to smother his mirth. Hope snickered at his amusement. Because it felt good to be lighthearted, she kept her humor by deliberately averting her gaze from his manhood.
Once Lokmi recovered, he sat next to her. He pulled off his boots and peeled his uniform away. He turned to her and stroked her hair.
“Any time anything gets to be too much, just say so,” he told her.
“I think I already did,” Hope said, still keeping her sights up and away from the twin terrors. “Do you get frequent backaches from the weight?”
