Nikky and Danny know they are different, and are perfectly happy being with each other. Yet, Nikky yearns to know more about his kind, for surely other werecats exist in the world. A chance encounter with a woman who could be his twin sparks a desire to research his murky past...but will Danny go along with it?



“Don’t go.” An arm followed the plea. The slender but muscular limb curled around Nikky’s middle and tugged him closer to the warm, nuzzling body beside him.“I have to.” Nikky’s eyes met red ones, his own hunger mirrored back at him. At this rate, he’d never get out of bed. He needed a job, he told himself, even as Danny rocked against him, cock hard and ruby eyes pleading. Nikky slipped an arm around the lean body rubbing against his and pulled Danny close—their breath catching, then disappearing as they came together, mouths hot and hungry, bodies rocking. Danny shuddered as Nikky gripped his ass, pulling Danny’s right leg over his hip. Nikky’s finger probed the quivering bit of puckered flesh before easing into the heat of Danny’s body.“Nikky,” Danny breathed into his mouth, Nikky’s name mingling with soft gasps and moans. “Please, baby. Need you. Hungry.”Nikky rolled them both until he was on top, sprawled between Danny’s legs, kisses growing hungrier and harder. With a shift of his hips, the head of his cock brushed his wrist as he fucked Danny with his fingers, curling them forward to stroke over Danny’s gland. Danny arched into him, a cry swallowed by their kiss. His body shook until Nikky was sure he could see tears streaking Danny’s face.“Shh,” Nikky purred, his mouth drifting over Danny’s face. tongue rasping. He licked away the pale red, salty tears. “I’ve got you.” Then he pulled his fingers out and pushed in—Danny’s body swallowed his cock, squeezing it in tight velvet. His head falling to Danny’s shoulder, Nikky shuddered. It always felt like the first time. Always.Danny clung to him, fingers digging into Nikky’s shoulders as his body took Nikky in deep.A soft kiss followed, then another. When Nikky started moving, Danny was right there with him, fingers sliding through Nikky’s hair to hold it away from their faces as Nikky made slow love to him. “Mine,” Danny whispered on Nikky’s lips.Nikky moaned and one hand dropped to Danny’s hip, gripping the slender body as they moved together. He could get lost in this, and had been lost for so long that it seemed like lifetimes. Danny was always ready, wanting him, no matter how many years it had been. “Don’t stop.” Danny’s mouth moved over his lips, his nose, and brushed his cheek. “Don’t ever stop.”“Never.” Nikky shook his head and took Danny in another kiss, their hips increasing in rhythm. Danny’s gasp went straight to Nikky’s soul, slipping through him as he coaxed his lover toward the edge. “Come for me…”Danny cried out, body shuddering as he came, red sweetness spreading between them. Nikky came crashing down, tongue probing Danny’s mouth deep, his moans turning feral as he neared release. When he came, the sound that escaped was half-cry, half-purr, echoing in their kiss as he filled Danny’s body.Movements slowing, their kiss eased into something light and drifting, more lips than tongue. Nikky finally pulled out and rolled over, collapsing onto his back and panting. Danny curled around him, their bodies molding perfectly to each other. Maybe another hour wouldn’t hurt. Nikky reached over and set the clock with only a cursory glance. Then he pulled the blankets back over them, tucked them around Danny, and drifted back off to sleep.When the alarm went off, Nikky was already up, half dressed when Danny’s hand came down on the clock to smash the snooze button. Nikky chuckled and leaned over, kissing Danny’s head. From under a mass of unruly red curls, his lover pouted.“It’s too fucking early.”Nikky just shook his head. “It’s always too early for you. We can’t live in bed.”The predictable “why not” drifted up from the mountain of pillows, Danny’s hips slowly humping the mattress. “Because,” Nikky whispered, lips brushing Danny’s shoulder as he teased Danny’s spine with his fingertips, “I have to work. Pay bills, have money, that sort of thing.” Danny gasped and his hips rose, legs spreading as Nikky pressed a finger to his hole. “Be good, love.”Nikky gave Danny a swat on the ass and left, laughing as Danny’s frustrated groans followed him down the hall and out the front door.Ten in the morning. Nikky had seriously hoped to get out and about earlier than this, but...well...his resistance when it came to Danny was essentially nonexistent. He smiled as he took the elevator down to the ground floor of Harborside Apartments. Having an apartment on the eighth floor afforded them an extraordinary view of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. He had said to Danny, just last night as they were sitting on their balcony, that he wanted a job somewhere close. He liked the idea of being able to look up and across the street to see Danny on the porch. As he stepped out onto the sidewalk, Nikky made a beeline for the mall along the harbor. It was a sprawling complex of shops, restaurants, and other such tourist traps, and he was certain he could find a job. During autumn a lot of the college students were back in school, leaving a healthy bit of job openings for the rest of the city. Besides, a new restaurant had opened two weeks ago; they would definitely need people. His mind made up, Nikky walked through the door of Harbor Eatery. “Welcome to Harbor Eatery,” a waitress near the door said. She picked up a wrapped set of silverware and a menu, then beamed a smile at Nikky. “This way, please.” She led him to one of the tables looking out over the harbor and set the menu and silverware down in front of him. “Can I get you something to drink?”“Actually, I’d like a job application,” Nikky said. “But a Coke is good, too.”She gave him another bright smile and Nikky caught her name just before she walked away. Serina. Different, but pretty. And her smile! Lord, the woman’s smile could light up the entire city in the event of a blackout.When she returned a few minutes later, Coke in one hand and a folded application in the other, Nikky met her gaze for a brief moment. For those few seconds, time seemed to stand still. There was a sort of familiarity in her golden eyes, in the way her breath caught the slightest bit. Then the moment ended and it was just the two of them, in a restaurant along Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. “Thanks,” Nikky said quietly. The waitress nodded and started back toward the kitchen, throwing another glance over her shoulder at Nikky. With considerable effort, he turned his attention to the paper in front of him.
Full Name: Nikolis Michael FaulknerBirthdate: June 8, 1976
Marital status? Now how the hell was he supposed to answer that one? They certainly weren’t married, not as far as the government was concerned.Nikky stared out at the harbor, wondering what exactly to call Danny. Six years. Six years had passed and they had never said anything about love. It was almost as if they didn’t have to. Yet, something inside him stirred at the thought of hearing those three little words from Danny, three little words that he knew would mirror Danny’s actions. Shaking his head, Nikky returned to the task of filling out the application. “Is there someone I can speak to now?” he asked Serina when she came back. He handed the application to her, watching her face closely when she glanced over it. A single twitch of her mouth, but nothing more. “The hiring manager won’t be in until tomorrow,” she said, looking up at him. “I’ll make sure he gets this, even if I have to hand it to him myself.”Nikky blinked. “Um, thanks!” When he handed her ten dollars, she started to walk away for his change. “Don’t worry about the change,” he said. Her smile was more than enough for him.As he headed for home, Nikky knew, just knew, he had the job. Something in his gut told him. He was practically on cloud nine when he stepped into the apartment, and the sight that greeted him sent him soaring even higher. Danny was bent over the bar, reaching for something in the kitchen sink. His faded blue jeans hugged his body, snug around muscular thighs, shaped calves, and the sweetest ass in the world. The added advantage of him cleaning? He did it shirtless.Muscles flexed under smooth, pale skin. Every one outlined perfectly, hard from working out on the bench. Hair the color of rich flames fell halfway down his back, loose and silky to the touch.Nikky reached out and wrapped a hand in the red length, tugging Danny’s head back. Danny’s left arm came up to circle Nikky’s neck, holding him close. On the way home, sex had been the furthest from Nikky’s mind, but pressed tight up against Danny’s ass? He was hard as a rock. The fact that Danny was grinding back against him and making needy little noises didn’t help.“Wow. Guess the job hunt went well?” Danny asked him, gasping as Nikky slipped a hand around to grip his cock through his jeans. “I think so.” Nikky turned Danny’s head just enough to lick Danny’s lips. “I have a good feeling.”“So do I,” Danny whispered, “but it has absolutely nothing to do with job hunting.” He pushed back against Nikky, emphasizing his point. “Where?”“Right here.” Nikky covered Danny’s mouth with his, tongue probing the cinnamon-tinted heat. The man lived on cinnamon candies and Nikky wasn’t about to complain. Danny’s kisses were sweet and moist, purely mouth-watering. Moving his hand slightly, Nikky had Danny’s jeans open and down within seconds. He then made quick work of his own, pushing them down just enough to free his cock. “Don’t move,” he whispered into Danny’s mouth. Dropping to his knees, Nikky kneaded the fleshy globes before him, spreading them slowly, catching glimpses of pink puckered skin. He gripped Danny’s hips and pulled him back just enough, then spread Danny wide open.Musky, sweet, all Danny. Nikky moaned as he rimmed Danny’s ass, tongue pushing deep. Danny gasped and groaned, hips rocking, fucking Nikky’s tongue slowly. Nikky felt the muscular thighs quiver beneath his hands, and Danny’s breathing turned quick and labored. He gave Danny’s hole a sucking kiss, then stood. “Please,” Danny pleaded breathlessly. “Fuck me, Nikky.”Nikky rubbed the head of his cock over Danny’s hole, bit his lip, and pushed. Tight heat drew him in, pulling him deep inside Danny’s body until his hips were flush with Danny’s ass. He held Danny still, not daring to move a single muscle as he fought to steady himself. Being inside Danny was the most incredible, most intense feeling in the world.“God, you’re so fucking tight,” he groaned, resting his head against Danny’s shoulder blade. “Every time. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been.”“Less talk,” Danny panted. “More fucking.”Nikky chuckled and kissed Danny’s back, then straightened himself back up. Holding Danny’s hips tight, he made long, deep strokes, both of them gasping with every slide in. Nikky reached around Danny and fisted Danny’s cock, matching the strokes in Danny’s ass. A few seconds later, one of Danny’s hands joined his, their fingers locking together. “Oh, shit...” Danny met Nikky’s thrusts, hips coming back with every push. “Nikky!”Nikky jerked hard and buried his cock in Danny, groaning as he came. Danny’s body milked every last drop out of him as the cock in their hands throbbed, coating their fists. Collapsing against Danny’s back, Nikky brushed his lips over the sweat-slick skin, licking and moaning softly. Even Danny’s sweat tasted like cinnamon. Nikky eased out of Danny and turned him around, meeting his lover in a kiss before dropping to his knees once more. Nimble fingers threaded through Nikky’s hair, holding it back. Danny’s semen tasted unusual. It was sticky and sweet, pearlescent red in color, and utterly addictive. Like a good drug, Nikky was certifiably hooked. As he cleaned Danny’s cock and both of their hands, Nikky shivered at the sweet taste sliding down his throat—hot cinnamon. “You look really good down there,” Danny teased. “Hungry.” Nikky stood and gave Danny another kiss, sharing the lingering cum on his tongue with his lover. “Mm,” Danny murmured. “Yummy.”Nikky chuckled and slapped Danny on the ass. “Get dressed. Need food, and I have got to tell you about the waitress at Harbor Eatery. Really fucking weird.”As Danny dressed, Nikky made his way to the kitchen. “You hungry?” he asked. He opened the refrigerator and stared at the contents. An arm snaked around his waist and Danny leaned past him, plucking a red grape from the bunch sitting in a bowl on the first shelf.“A little,” Danny said. He released Nikky and put his back to the counter, then jumped up to sit on it. “Now what’s this about a waitress?”Nikky took out a plate of leftover hamburgers and the bottle of ketchup. He unwrapped the plate and put it in the microwave. “I swear she looked familiar.” As the hamburgers warmed, he turned around. “I don’t know why. Something in her eyes.”Danny lifted a copper eyebrow. “Familiar how?”Nikky stared at him in silence for a moment. “Familiar. Like family.”“You think it’s possible that you two might be related?”The microwave dinged and Nikky took the burgers out. He grabbed two plates and two forks, not quite ignoring Danny’s question, but not quite sure how to answer. He sighed when Danny kissed his neck softly. “I don’t know,” Nikky said quietly. “But…”“But?” Danny turned him around slowly, a calm, easy smile on his lips. “What?”“You’d think I was nuts,” Nikky laughed.Danny grinned. “I already do, but that’s beside the point.”“I’m not so sure my parents were my birth parents,” Nikky sighed. “How else could I have been born with the ability to change into a cat at will? How likely is it really to find someone else like myself, whose eyes make me feel like I’m staring into a mirror?”“A twin?”Danny gave him a quick kiss and took the plates and forks, then walked over to the dining room table. As he set the table, Nikky filled two glasses with water. Danny came back for the glasses and stopped, holding Nikky’s gaze.“You didn’t answer me.”Nikky shook his head. “It’s because a part of me is afraid you might be right.”
