LORD CHRISTOPHER TEMPLETON'S UNIQUE PLEDGE

PG Excerpt


“Christopher Templeton, do you pledge your heart, spirit, body and mind to Ylianor Caldwell and to me, Duncan Caldwell, to be our lover, mate, friend and kindred spirit?”

“I pledge my love and my life to you both, Ylianor and Duncan.” Chris looked at each in turn. “So that we may be one while still being three. I want to be your lover…” His hand slipped down to fondle their sex. “Your friend…” He squeezed their hands. “Your brother…” He placed his palm over their hearts. “And your mate.” He touched their heads. “For as long as I breathe because it’s what my heart commands.”

Impulsively, he wrapped his arms around Ylianor and crushed her against him, ravaging her mouth hard and deep. “I don’t have any special sharing power, so I’ll have to rely on inadequate words.” Out of breath, he drew back slightly. “I love you, sleeping beauty, with all my heart and spirit. I’m just sorry it took me so long to see it. But now that I do, I want you next to me all the time, in and out of bed, in and out of life. And to put your mind at ease, this pledge is my choice. No family, no father’s threats would’ve ever convinced me to take a woman, any woman, as my companion, if she weren’t as special, as powerful, as beautiful as you are.”

“Demon…I…”

“No, sleeping beauty, not now.” Then he turned to the leader and pulled him close. “Sorry if I’ll sound repetitive, my dark handsome prince. I don’t know what other words to use, what new ones to invent to tell you of the depth of my love for you. I know now it must’ve started before time itself and will last until the end of time. So it sounds hollow to pledge it, along with my life, to you, but it’s exactly what I’m doing, ‘cause you are my everything and can take both whenever and however you like, to do with them as you please.”

“Angel…” He was not supposed to talk, not yet, so he closed his mouth.

“To you both I vow my undying loyalty and trust.” The flash in the blue-gray eyes was evident also in the semi-darkness. “But I also tell you I want no plans for the future—”

“Rules?” The princess’s question sounded sarcastic.

“No rules either.” The angel chuckled. “Just a whole lot of sex.”

“Agreed.” What else to say?

Then his gaze ran to his princess. “Ylianor Caldwell, do you pledge your heart, spirit, body and mind to Christopher Templeton and to me, Duncan Caldwell, to be our lover, mate, friend and kindred spirit?”
