    Chapter 18

    "That was so amazing!" Jasper said as he flopped into a seat on the bridge of the ship that he and Tilbei now considered theirs. The half-Polkin smiled sweetly up at his Nubra. "It was beautiful how Zay and Pip swam together. And Zay learned his part so fast! I know he said he had lots of practice swimming and that they changed some of his motions to things he could do more easily. But still, it was like they were dancing in the water. And then when Pip turned into his little Sepida self and waved his little arm-tentacles around and changed colors and patterns! So cute! And Zay held up those colored shells and rocks that matched Pip!" Jasper made a happy chitter and slumped back with a smile that slowly faded. He looked at his lover with concern. "I...I don't think I can swim as well as Zay, Bei…" The Nubra finished up setting their course towards Jasper's home planet. As much as he longed to perform the same ceremony with the lovely hybrid, they still needed to get permission from Jasper's parents first. "Don't worry. We don't have to perform it completely submerged. I can survive out of the water for long stretches of time," he reminded. "And I'm so small that, if you really wanted to, you could keep me in a small cupped puddle in your hands for the entire dance with only your feet in the water." He immediately reached out to thread their hands together. His heart swelled at the thought of being mated to Jasper. "Any version of the dance is accepted so long as it's with the consent of the family," Tilly concluded. "And I can't imagine dancing with anyone else. I love you, Jasper." The hybrid's lavender eyes grew misty, and he blinked furiously. Stupid overactive tear ducts. Jasper had always been a sensitive soul, but he'd been more emotional since his captivity. Jasper didn't understand it. While the Hunnars had held him, abused and used him, he'd been so focused on making it through the next day, even the next hour, he hadn't been so weepy unless one of them had been hurting him. Jasper only felt safe, now, when Tilbei was close. The half-Polkin knew it was ridiculous to be so jumpy all the time. They couldn't have been safer on Tilbei's planet during the party following the national ceremony. Yet, when Tilbei had left for only a few minutes to do a traditional dance with the other Nubra present, Jasper had nearly had a panic attack when he'd lost sight of his lover, and some poor elderly Sepida woman had bumped into his tail. Jasper had startled the stuffing out of her when he'd yelped and jumped a mile. Thank goodness Tilbei hadn't seen, and Jasper thought he'd hidden his impending freakout enough that the Nubra hadn't noticed. Jas didn't want to be weak and clingy, and he was downright terrified of driving Tilbei away. "I love you, too. So much," Jasper said softly. He swallowed hard. "You know how you said maybe I should talk to someone, like a professional, and I said no way?" The hybrid fussed with his tail, combing his fingers through the soft, thick fur. His stupid tear ducts were acting up again, but he continued. "Maybe you're right…maybe it would be a good idea. I don't want to bother you so much because I'm nervous about stupid things." The Nubra immediately shook his head. "No, I want this," he countered. "I want you to be honest with me and tell me all of your fears. You promised you would, remember?" He gently ushered the hybrid into a warm embrace. "I'd be right there with you, if you wished. Stars know I'm not perfect, either. I have some repressed anger about the Hunnars and many fears of losing you. I rarely express it, but that's more than enough of a reason to see a professional, as well. "You think mom and I haven't noticed?" Tilbei continued. "We both want you to be happy. Not pretend happy or happy for our sake. But, well and truly happy. And I want to be with you every step of the way." "I am happy… a lot of the time. When I'm with you, I'm happy." Jasper took a breath and shared the worry that made his chest ache. "I'm so scared you'll get tired of me being so needy. Like some clinging baby. I hid it at the party, but after that dance you did with the other Nubra I was a mess. And it was for no reason. You were out of sight, and a little grandma bumped me. Polkin are supposed to be brave, but I'm not anymore. My ma will be so disappointed in me." Jasper hid his face in Tilbei's warm chest, ashamed. Tilbei frowned. Though he and is mother had seen Jasper's "jumpiness" on other occasions, the hybrid hadn't told him specifically about his insecurities during the dance. "Jasper, I want nothing more than for you to tell me whenever you feel that way. I don't mind your clinginess. You can cling to me whenever you wish. Always." He insisted. "But, I really do want you to trust me with your fears." "It makes me feel dumb to be afraid of things I shouldn't be scared of," Jasper admitted with a small sigh. "But I'll try." He peeked up at Tilbei then hid his face again, his medium-sized rabbit ears tickling the Nubra under his chin. "I get scared when you're not close, especially if you're out of sight. Even when I know I'm perfectly safe. And I don't like it when anyone except you or a friend is behind me. It makes it hard to breathe, and my heart beats too fast. And you know how I feel about kitchens and dining rooms." Jas pressed his cheek, hot with embarrassment, against Tilbei's skin. "Those are the big things that have been problems lately." "Then, I'll be sure to keep by your side no matter what," Tilbei responded. "At least until you start feeling a little better about it. I'm a Nubra...our kind are clingers. Didn't you see how Pip never strayed far from Zane and kept touching him? Being close all the time is usually our problem." He admitted as he ran a hand over the half-polkin's back in warm circles. "It was careless of me to have allowed myself to be dragged into the dance without keeping you with me. I'm sorry, Jas." "No, don't be sorry." Jas offered an uncertain but hopeful smile. "Nubra really are clingy? It's really okay for me to be glommed onto you all the time? Because I like it." He rubbed his cheek against Tilbei's shoulder. "I really like being close to you, as close as I can get." "Yes, I love grooming you all the time," Tilly confessed. "It's one of the things I look forward to the most every day." He snuggled against the hybrid. "I also love having you near me like this as often as possible." A weight seemed to leave Jasper, and he slumped against Tilbei with a soft happy noise. Jas gave the Nubra a squeeze and sat up, sliding to straddle Tilly. "I like this, too." Jasper's smile had lost its uncertainty, and the worry had left his lovely lilac eyes. It made Tilbei suck in a breath. The half-Polkin had always been beautiful to him, but the shift in his lover's posture and something in his expression radiating a change in him. There was more confidence there and something else that Tilly couldn't quite identify, but it was beautiful. Jasper looked stunning, smiling down at Tilbei with his lavender hair hiding one eye. "I like being even nearer," Jasper said softly, leaning closer and rolling his hips against the man beneath him. The Nubra felt a thrill rolling down his spine. "Is that so?" He gently teased as he grinded against his lilac lover. "Because I very much enjoy our being even closer, as well." He reached down to eagerly rake his fingers along a sensitive spot on the hybrid's tail. With his other hand, he dexterously untied the segment where Jasper's cloth was secured. The fabric immediately fell down the half-Polkin's body as quickly as the curtain of a theater. "The bed is too far," Jas said, a little breathless. He was already hard, a drop of precum at his tip. "I can't wait that long to have you in me. I love you, Bei. I want you." He bit his full lower lip, eyelids fluttering as he pressed forward, rubbing his length wantonly against Tilbei's flat stomach. "How do you want me?" Tilbei hissed as he lifted Jasper by the thighs and then sat them both in the pilot's chair. "Tell me what you want me to do. One shaft, two? Long thrusts, soft?" Jasper couldn't hold back a moan, grinding harder against his dark-skinned lover. "Stars, Bei, both. I need both of them, long and deep. I want to feel you as close with me as I can." He arched back to look into Tilbei's eyes. "I need it, give it to me." Tilly allowed the commands to wash over him as he reached down to stretch his lover. The two of them were sexually active on a regular basis, so he didn't have to do much. Not a moment later, both of his shafts slid into the hybrid's depths as far as they could go. Jasper cried out in surprised pleasure. He didn't even think of where Tilly had been keeping the lube in the cockpit or how he'd applied it so quickly. Jas just knew it felt perfect. He felt full, connected to Bei in a soul-deep way that was just as good as the thick cocks stretching him. Tilbei rubbed against all the best sensitive spots inside him. "Feels so good," Jasper moaned, his head falling back as his body arched and shifted as he rode his Nubra. The Nubra wasted no time in working up to a long and hard pace for his beloved. By, then, he knew just where to aim those thrusts and when he needed to move faster. Tilbei had never been aroused enough for his third shaft to appear before he came across Jasper. The appearance of his third shaft was a common occurrence those days. "Jas," Tilly hissed after he nipped one of the hybrid's ears. His hand reached down to take both his third shaft and Jasper's shaft and began to stroke them at the same pace as his thrusts. Jasper shuddered, a raspy moan falling from his lips. His body rippled around Tilbei as the hybrid moved faster, his thighs trembling as he sank down onto Bei's lengths hard and fast. The Nubra's third shaft rubbed against Jasper's balls with every thrust and Jas was nearly mindless with pleasure. Everything felt light and foggy as sparks jumped in his vision. "Bei," Jasper gasped. "Gonna come…" "Then come, love," Tilbei rumbled huskily as he continued to piston into the half-Polkin's depths. "See the goddess." "You, too," Jasper said, voice rough as he kept up his frantic pace, the sound of their bodies coming together and their harsh breaths filling the cockpit. "Come with me. Fill me up and cover me with it. Please, Bei!" Jas begged as he began to lose his rhythm, beginning to fall into the bliss that was consuming him. He cried out as his body tightened, but continued to force Tilbei inside him deep and hard as his orgasm roared over him. The Nubra's own release wasn't far behind Jasper's. He continued to drive himself deep into his lover, as deep as was possible. A mere moment after Jasper's seed spilled between them, Tilly's own seed shot along the hybrid's chest and stomach. The inky-hued man's chest lifted and feel as he took in shuddering breaths of bliss. "After we land, I'll end up being the clingy one," Tilbei admitted. "Should you decide to stay and live near your parents, I'll follow you anywhere." Jasper giggled softly, mountains of anxiety and insecurity lightened from his mind. He knew he still needed to talk to a professional. There were a lot of fears that still lurked inside him. However, his insecurity and worries about his relationship with Tilbei were gone. The Nubra wanted him and would stay with him forever. Bei loved Jas and Jasper loved Tilbei. It was going to be okay. A goofy smile lingered on Jasper's lips as he gazed up at his lover, his mate. "You should probably get through meeting my parents before you volunteer to live nearby." :: By the end of day, Tilbei didn't know if he was in Jasper's parents' good graces or not. The hybrid's world was unlike anything he had ever seen. But, it was just as amazing. The People were energetic at times, adorable, hospitable, and quite amorous. They caught many couples boffing in broad daylight, and it was absolutely normal there. As the celebrations went on and night fell, Tilly saw many groups of people entering one of the larger huts. "What's going on in there?" He asked Jasper softly. "Hmm?" Jasper looked to where Tilbei was gesturing. "That's the love hut." "The love hut?" The Nubra questioned, confused. "It's where people... ummm..." The hybrid blushed a pretty mauve. "If someone needs to make some really good friends..." Jasper shook his head and grabbed his mate's hand. "Why don't I just show you?" Tilly allowed himself to be led by his mate as they approached the hut. The two of them peeked inside, and the Nubra's peach eyes went wide. "I should have known..." He whispered at the sight of several groups of 'the People' touching and kissing one another. They dawdled there at the entrance, both wanting to watch just a little longer. It was an incredibly erotic sight. A dozen of the rabbit people were in various states of undress. No one seemed to be having full intercourse, but everything short of that seemed to be going on in the dimly lit building. "What are you looking at?" came a rather loud whisper from directly behind them. "Are you going in? Can we play together?" Tilly and Jasper turned around to see yet another shocking sight, an albino rabbit. "I'm sorry, what was that?" The Nubra asked. "Are you going in?" the lop-eared rabbit asked with a little bounce. "Wow, you are both amazing." The pale man's flower-pink eyes sparkled as he stepped close to them. One pale hand stroked Jasper's soft lilac, and white hair then rubbed the hybrid's ears. The white rabbit's other hand traced the orange spots on Tilbei's cheeks, then began tracing the tentacle petals on the Nubra's head. "So, beautiful," the albino hummed under his breath. The Nubra felt quite strange to see someone so beautiful calling him beautiful. "Th-thanks? I'm Tilbei...mate to Jasper right here." He greeted as he took hold of the Polkin's hand. "I'm Phenner! Or, you can call me Phen," the albino announced with a wide smile. ::END::

    Chapter 17

    The short trip back to Pipolphi's village was full of chatter. The Sepida felt torn in a dozen directions. He wanted to talk nonstop to Zane, full of questions he hadn't had the vocabulary to properly voice before. Just listening to his human speaking Sepida in that big, deep voice left Pip a dreamy lavender with streaks of joyful green. Pip was also distracted by Louie and his mate. Pipolphi trilled and chirped at how cute Louie and Lilly were, amazed at how quickly they'd bonded and how well they seemed to complement each other. Lilly had surprisingly few questions, seeming to simply accept things as they were and that things would be properly explained by Louie as they came up. The only bump seemed to be when Lilly came across Louie's big stuffed bear. "What is this?" the Hefuan demanded. "Why does it smell of my mate this way?" Louie's ears drooped and his head lowered as if he felt he had done something wrong. "Bear was a gift," he explained. "Helped chase the loneliness away. So, I marked it...many, many times." Zane looked about as uncomfortable as Louie felt. His face became tinged with embarrassed pink. He never expected to end up having to hear about any of this. "It can stay because it comforted you before I found you." Lilly sniffed regally and shook her ears. "You will only mark me, from now on. And it will be much better than Bear and you will be sure to tell me so at every available opportunity." Louie let out a joyous bark and twirled around the Hefuan. "Absolutely," he rumbled in content. "You mean much more to me than Bear." The human let out a groan and covered his face with his hands. On the one hand, it was great that Louie had a partner and was no longer having to "chase the loneliness away." On the other hand, everything he heard was most definitely too much information for him to handle. "May I mark you now, my beautiful mate?" Louie then asked. Zane desperately began to motion towards them. "I can't see that! That's a private...I refuse to…" He sputtered as he turned towards Pip. "Can they get a room or something?" "So sweet," Pip cooed at the new couple, then realized Zane had spoken to him. "Oh, yes. Of course." He glanced at the controls. "We're very nearly home. I have a dry room that I think would be comfortable. And I can set up the doors to open for them without having to activate the sensor manually. I know Louie is a strong and free spirit and his mate deserves the same consideration." Pip pointed out the port window at a dome that looked much the same as the other domes scattered along where the sea met the sand. "Ahn, there it is. I was able to get permission earlier today to land in the vacant spot next to it. So, it's not even a walk and Louie and Lilly can get a room." Pip glanced to the pair in question, who Zane was studiously turned away from. "Though they don't seem to feel they require privacy. How romantic, they are overcome with their feelings! Be careful, Louie, the metal floor can be slippery!" There was a gentle bump as the ship touched down. "Here we are! Welcome home!" Home was a dome not far from Pip's parents' and even closer to Tilbei's. Like most homes, it had wet and dry areas. There were three dry bedrooms, one of which had a patio-style door that led to a small green space away from the saltwater. Pip had thought he'd ask Louie and Lilly if they'd like that room. Going outside often had seemed very important to Louie back on Earth and the Hefuan would likely feel the same. Pip's bedroom was both wet and dry with a pool on one side with live coral and plants. The dry side held a soft, low bed and other furniture. There was a bathroom attached with a nice big tub that Pip had missed. When Louie and Lilly were finally off in their own section of the house, Zane let out a breath of relief. "It's not that I'm not happy for them," he explained to Pipolphi. "And it's not like I don't want them to bond more or anything...it's just that in my culture, making love is a private matter and should only be shared between the couple in question." "I see…I think." Pip looked thoughtful as he led Zane to their room. "But the movies… Are they not accurate?" He tried to remember a specific movie. It was difficult since they'd mostly been filtered for language. "Wasn't there one about a professor and a woman of wonder?" He frowned. "And human men with large amounts of money don't always objectify, buy, or abuse women sexually? I'm so confused…" Pip finished under his breath. "The majority of movies are inaccurate," Zane admitted. "They are only fake stories meant to entertain. Documentaries are closer to the truth, and almost all science fiction movies are false." "But how do you know which is which?" Pipolphi asked, walking into the bathroom and touching the activator for the tub that was more like a small pool. There was no faucet, filling from the bottom up with clean water a quarter as salty as the sea and relaxingly warm but not hot enough to make Pip drunk. "There is usually text that is shown before or after the movie that explains whether it was based on truth or not," the man pointed out. "In general, movies help us escape the hardships of reality by distracting us with a fictional character's hardships." "Based on a true story!" Pip squeaked, hair flattening to his head. "That's connected in my head with all kinds of things." The Sepida wrapped himself around his human as much as he was able, which really wasn't much considering how big Zane was and how big Pip wasn't. "Earth must be terrifying…all those haunted dolls and murderous ghosts…" As Zane wrapped his arms around the petite Sepida, he shook his head. "Dolls and murderous ghosts are nothing compared to what humans tend to do to one another. Many wars and much greed," he admitted. "Though, from what I've seen with the Hunnars, greed seems to be a universal thing." Pip nodded with a deep, sad sigh, his pink coloring reflecting his feelings on the subject. "It seems to be." He stepped into the warm soothing waters and knelt, trailing his fingers through the ripples. "Sometimes it all feels so big, too big. Like the problems are deeper than the ocean and wider than the sky and I'm just so small." He tucked his arms around himself. "But the elders teach us when we're small that everything we touch will touch other things and if the waves we send through the universe are loving and kind then it causes more change than we can see. It's subtle and soft, hard to notice." "The big bad things are like crashing waves, tearing the land back into the sea." Pipolphi smacked the water with the flat of his hand, sending a splash out of the tub to puddle on the floor. "It's easier to notice those things. But it's the little waves that bring the sand back, the shells and stones. Eventually, those small waves bring animals and life and push back the destruction." Pip looked up at Zane with a small smile, looking more relaxed. "And then life and love win against the destruction, just a little at a time from all the people everywhere sending out their little tiny waves." He dabbled his fingers in the water, making ripples dance in widening circles from his slender fingertips. When the tall human had first laid eyes on Pipolphi, he felt that the alien was beautiful. Quite different from him, but beautiful. Zane saw that beauty also reflected in actions. But, thanks to the translation provided by the chip, he was finally able to understand more of the depths of Pip's beauty through the petite man's thoughts and opinions. His partner was quite poetic, romantic, and wise. Zane wasn't going to waste another minute without expressing as much. "I think it's wonderful to think of it that way," he responded as he began to discard his clothes and joined the Sepida in the water. "That a balance can still be made to help counteract the negativity. If the elders were the ones to guide you to that conclusion, then I'm grateful to them, as well." As he spoke, he moved closer and closer to Pipolphi. "I'm also quite grateful that our paths crossed...that you were able to accept me even before you could fully understand me. Thank you for giving me that chance, Pip." "Thank me?" The Sepida let out a scoffing chirp. "I could thank you a thousand times a day and it wouldn't be enough to show my appreciation for everything you and Louie have done for me." Pipolphi pressed himself to Zane, basking in the feel of strong arms wrapping him up, making him feel safer than he'd ever felt, even with Tilbei. "If not for you, Tillly might still be trapped with the Hunnars. Sweet Jasper, too. I'd have been caught and used or sold, I have no doubt. They would have found me, eventually." Pip looked up, his wide eyes shining with the depths of his emotions. "And my life would have been a sad, empty place without your love to fill it." His cheeks darkened and his hair began to twine together. "And fill me. Because I love how you fill me up, my hearts and my body." A slow, growing smirk formed on Zane's face. "Is that so?" The human whispered as he reached up to gently tug on one of the twining strands. "Do you also like it when I do this?" He asked as he threaded his fingers through Pip's hair and gently tugged at the base. "I read what was in the jars that Cisco gave to us. Want to try them out? The lubrication tablets?" Pip nodded, delighting in how it pulled his hair even tighter. The slender tentacles wrapped around themselves and Zane's fingers. "I want you, Zay." Zane didn't need any words to show just how alluring and arousing the Sepida was to him. His body just reacted. The box full of Cisco's trading goods wasn't too far away, so the tall man used his longer arms to his advantage in order to dig for that jar. "That reminds me, I never did manage to figure out exactly why you didn't want me to take you in my mouth before," Zane prompted. "I mean, you said it would make me 'over happy' and you seemed really worried about it. But, now that we can properly tell each other if anything's wrong...would you like to try?" "The essence from me is a strong aphrodisiac," Pipolphi explained. "It could hit you hard and last for a few hours. I knew I couldn't fully explain that to you and I wouldn't put you in that position without your full consent. You'll come but you may stay hard. It could take several orgasms before you're sated." Pip looked hopefully up at his human. The idea of having the big man so turned on and wanting, needing him left Pipolphi's hair braided tight and his skin the sapphire blue of deep arousal. The other man began nodding before Pip completed his explanation. "That's alright, I still want to try," Zane insisted. "If anything goes wrong, I can tell you now. So, may I please have a taste of you?" Pipolphi nodded, cooing softly. "Where would you like me?" "Right here," the human responded. "The water isn't warm enough to cause you to overheat, and that way we don't have to worry about cleaning up as much and I can carry you to bed." He added. "Unless, you prefer to do it on the bed…" "Can we start here and then go there?" Pip looked up shyly. "When you want to, will you lift me up and carry me there? I…I like how big you are…how petite you make me feel. It turns me on and makes me feel safe and excited all at the same time." A blush formed on the taller man's cheeks. "Yeah, that'd be amazing," he agreed, still getting used to how candid and honest the Sepida was in all the lurid details. "That reminds me, though...I offered you towels to dry yourself off after a bath. But, you always preferred to just rub your skin dry. Is that normal for you guys?" Pip nodded. "The water comes off easily. And it's important to make sure to redistribute the oils that protect our skin. It wouldn't be good to rub it away." Pipolphi made a pained face, remembering an embarrassing rash he'd had as an adolescent from failing to properly groom himself after bathing or swimming. "It hurts if you do?" Zane wondered aloud as he reached over to gently trail his fingers along Pip's forearm in curiosity. "I want to learn more about you…" "I'll tell you anything. I want to know everything about you, too." The Sepida had nearly melted into the water at Zane's sweet words. He cooed and snuggled close to his human. "Our skin is tough in some ways but delicate in others. It resists trauma well. However, there is a balance of pH, natural oils, and microflora. It needs to be kept clean but without altering this balance. Otherwise the skin can develop rashes or even crack and bleed. Usually we brush ourselves daily with special brushes. I've been doing alright with just using my hands. It's nice to be home where I can groom myself properly again. It would be so embarrassing to get a rash!" Pip let out a soft, distressed chirp and clung tightly to Zane's side. "Oh? Rashes aren't all that embarrassing to humans," Zane mused aloud. "Grooming with a brush sounds like a longer process than just your hands. But, if rashes and cracked skin is the result otherwise, I can see how it's important," his hand reached down to gently stroke and rub at the Sepida's scalp in an unconscious gesture. "If you ever need help with that, don't hesitate to ask." There was a splash as Zane suddenly found his arms empty. He wiped the water from his eyes to find Pip climbing gracefully back into the water, holding something in his hand. The Sepida pressed it into Zane's fingers. It was an oval about the length of Pip's hand, made out of some sort of thick shell that had been smoothed of any sharp edges. On one side, it was covered in short, soft bristles. Pip's hair was coiled so tightly it was painful, but he didn't care. Zane had offered to brush him…in the tub. A wicked thrill shivered down Pipolphi's spine. It was so naughty. Realistically, Pip knew that this was something mated couples did for each other. It certainly wasn't discussed in polite company, however. Running the damp brush over wet skin…not just using it to dry off and spread protective oils. Brushing oneself in the bath was expected, but it wasn't discussed. It was a cleansing act, private, a bit dirty. Pip was nearly panting as he looked up into the slightly startled eyes of his human. The human's fingers ran over the bristles. The material really was quite soft. He was finally starting to understand why using a brush such as the one he held in his hand was much more efficient in distributing oils evenly. "You want to try it now, Pip?" Zane asked as he carefully ran the brush over one of the Sepida's shoulders and down a forearm. "How's this?" Pip cooed happily. "You can press harder. It will work best if you do circles… and that feels the best. The oil comes from little spots around the joints. If you look carefully, you can see they're slightly darker than the rest of my skin. I start around a joint and work outward. While I'm in the water it'll help clean me. When I'm out of the water, it will make sure the protectant is spread evenly." The Sepida peeked up at Zane adoringly. "But you can do it however you want. I know it will feel good if you're the one doing it." "In circles, like this?" Zane asked as he moved the brush towards Pip's back, applying more pressure. The circling motions rose to the nape of the petite man's neck. Zane held the brush carefully at an angle as he gently dragged it along the Sepida's scalp and the base of his hair strands. Pip moaned happily, pressing his front to Zane and nuzzling as his hips rolled, rubbing his length against his human's solidly muscled thigh. A wide smirk formed on the human's face. "I'm guessing I got it right," He mused as he set the brush aside in favor of running his hands through Pipolphi's sensitive hair. Zane had seen firsthand how tightening and loosening the strands affected the Sepida with the help of the machine that Cisco had given them earlier. So, he gave them a gentle tug at the base. "Zay," Pip gasped breathlessly. He rubbed his throbbing cock wantonly against his human, letting out a trilling moan. "Tell me what you like, Pip," Zane practically purred as he kissed his way down to one of the Sepida's nipple and gave it a gentle nip. "Tell me what feels good." "When you touch me…everywhere." Pip licked his lips and moaned as his human's big hand swept down his back and gave one round cheek a squeeze. "When you pull my braids…I like it gentle, but I like it hard, too. Ah!" The Sepida gasped as Zane used his other hand to pull softly and then harder at a swirl of Pip's braids. "Mmnnn, or when you pick me up and move me around like I'm something small. That…gets me excited every time. I don't know, so many things you do make me feel good." The taller man carefully lifted Pip until he was seated on the edge of the tub. He leaned down to claim the Sepida's lips and became lost in the exploration of his lover's mouth. When he felt the smaller man's hands and hair strands stroking him, it was a welcoming sensation...like coming home. It took Zane a good moment to pull away enough to kiss his way down Pip's torso until he found himself kneeling down in front of him. Zane carefully took Pipolphi's member in his hand and began to stroke it. He shot a heated glance up at the Sepida with his slate eyes before he dipped down to lick a line up the underside. "That," Pip said on a moan, his skin turning a rich sapphire, "feels very, very good." The Sepida's slender fingers ran restlessly through his lover's hair as he fought the need to thrust into the moist heat of Zane's mouth. As the human took the shaft into his mouth, he noted the slight difference in taste. But, the very idea that it was Pip's flesh made it all the more arousing to him. He moved along the member and sucked with varying pressure. Zane hadn't been allowed to do any of this for Pip, so he did his best to bring the Sepida pleasure. "Yeeahh, there," Pip begged as Zane sucked harder and rubbed his tongue along the underside. The Sepida trilled in pleasure, throwing a leg over his lover's shoulder. "Please, Zay… I…" Pip cried out in bliss as Zane found a sweet spot just under Pipolphi's tip and massaged it mercilessly with his tongue. Pip stiffened, his skin turning such a deep blue it was nearly black as he came hard, flooding the human's mouth with seed that was both salty and sweet. The dark-haired man wasted no time in swallowing as much as he could. He felt a warmth as what he consumed made its way down. Zane took a deep breath as the warmth spread all over. Before he realized what he was doing, one of his hands reached back to gently slide his fingers along Pipolphi's entrance. "Pip, may I?" He whispered. "Please, yes," the Sepida begged, writhing as he tried to push down on Zane's fingers. "I need you, Zay…" Zane reached for one of the lubrication tablets they were given, along with the soft brush, and then lifted the Sepida into his arms as he walked them over to the bed. He stopped just in front of the bed as he carefully set the petite man down on his feet. "Let's get you brushed first," he suggested as he began to rub the brush along Pip's fingers and hands, working his way up one arm and then the next. The human was meticulous and thorough with his movements, ensuring that he brushed along every inch of skin he could see. Though he made sure that the bristles avoided Pipolphi's more private areas, he still gave them a gentle stroke with his other hand before continuing his work. He didn't slow down until he rose back up to the back of the Sepida's neck, having carefully lifted the curled strands aside to reach it. "Should I brush along your hair, as well, Pip?" Zane asked. "I'll come if you do," the Sepida admitted quickly. "I want you in me when I come again." Zane felt a thrilling shiver down his spine at the words. He, himself was more than ready to dive inside the Sepida. Though the aphrodisiac properties didn't seem to affect him as badly as Pip feared, it still affected him. He set the brush aside and once again lifted the smaller man up to deposit him onto the bed as he simultaneously slid the lubrication tablet inside Pip's entrance. After a bit of stretching, he found himself hesitating as he pressed the tip of his shaft to the Sepida's ring. "Pip, have I ever injured you whenever we made love in the past? Have I ever been too rough?" "Too rough?" The Sepida sounded adorable baffled. "I love it when you're rough. It feels so good and makes me so excited. Hnn, I guess maybe it stings a bit sometimes, but I like that too. And then it just feels good. And when I'm sore later it just reminds me of what we did. Sometimes I wish I could feel sore like that all the time." A shiver went through him, deeping the richness of the blue of his skin. "Really good. You've never ever damaged me. Is that what you mean?" "Yes, that's what I meant," Zane responded breathlessly. The Sepida's elaborations bounced about in his mind, causing him to become even more aroused. He had to pull himself together before he could concentrate enough on entering his petite lover without blowing his load. "There," he whispered into a webbed ear when he sunk right to the base. "Let me know when to start moving." "Now," Pip said immediately, pushing up to grind himself against his lover. The taller man let out a low chuckle. That part hadn't changed. The Sepida was still as eager as ever to start. He pulled out nearly all the way and slid back in slowly. Zane kept the same agonizingly slow pace and made sure to hold Pip's hips down while he was at it. The Sepida gasped and squirmed. It was so good but it was driving him mad. The feel of Zane filling him, holding him down…A series of soft cries left his lips. "Zay, please!" "Please what?" Zane responded with a smirk. He heard Pip's cries before, but it was amazing to finally understand what they meant. He leaned down to gently nuzzle some of the Sepida's hair strands. "Ahhmm," Pip moaned with a seductive trill. "Fuck me, take me. I want to feel you everywhere. I love your hands holding me down but I need you. Please, please…" Zane lifted one of his hands so that he could thread his fingers through Pip's hair and take a good grasp of the back of his head. He then began to gradually increase the pace. Though he felt the Sepida's legs clinging tightly to him, he never wavered in his movements. "Unh, yeah. Like that, please," Pip begged, nearly incoherent with pleasure, shoving back into every thrust. "So good. Take me, Zay! You feel so big inside me. I want it… I want it all…" The human complied. Again and again, he drove himself into the body beneath his. He angled his thrusts and gently twisted the strands of hair between his fingers. He would give the Sepida as much pleasure as he was able to. "Zay!" Pip keened, wrapping arms and legs around his human as much as he was able. Pipolphi writhed in Zane's arms, pushing into each thrust and rolling his hips to rub his aching length against the taut ridges of Zane's stomach. "I'm c-close! I want you… I love you so much!" Pip cried out as pleasure wracked him. His body tightened on the thick cock plunging deeply inside him. It caused Zane's tip to hit his prostate harder, deeper, and Pip felt like he was flying into pieces as he shot the proof of his enjoyment between their bodies. "Beautiful," Zane hissed as he followed Pip into bliss. "Your stamina and voice…" He tried to explain. "Don't think I could ever get enough of you. I love you, too." "Mmnnn. " Pip blinked up at his lover sleepily. "Love you, Zay. Until the sky swallows the sea. Love you." Pipolphi's smile was sweet and adoring. "If my essence is still working on you, wake me up in five minutes. If it's not working and you aren't too tired, wake me in ten." His blinks grew longer as his turned a deep blue-green. "I want you to come in my…" Pip gave a huge yawn and closed his eyes. "In my mouth," he finished and wriggled close to Zane. The Sepida let out a contented sigh and fell asleep. Zane let out a low chuckle. "As you wish," he whispered as he nuzzled the top of the Sepida's head. "My beloved Buttercup."

    Chapter 16

    Pip thought he understood, but wanted to clarify. He spoke in Sepida, {"Does that mean I won't have to pay for upgrades anymore? And all the languages are included with the upgrade you're doing today?"} That was way too good a deal. Sepida selling their essence wasn't a common thing, but it was done. Was there really such a demand for it that it was worth so much? It made the concern about Sepida being kidnapped by unscrupulous aliens make a bit more horrible sense. Greed was pretty much a universal thing, from what Pip understood. {"Exactly,"} Cisco responded. {"The automatic upgrades are a new promotional thing, though. There was some competition going on with, get this, a company selling lubrication tablets eating up the market. I actually have a jar of them too, if you wanna try them. They're quite convenient and come in many flavors and sensations."} {"Ooo, yes, please!"} Pip chirped happily as they were led to a small room with a surprisingly nice MedUnit. Pipolphi nodded in satisfaction, looking it over and seeing the tech was state of the art and well-maintained. It was good enough for his human and his Louie. Pip hugged Zane tight around the middle, not quite able to reach all the way around, and rubbed his face in his mate's sternum while his hair tentacles waved around in excitement. Pipolphi loved Zane and wanted so much to be able to communicate freely with the giant alien. Pip couldn't find the words in English or Sepida to explain how Zane made Pipolphi feel. Zane carefully hugged the Sepida back. If it weren't for the "happy, excited hair" he saw, he'd have thought that Pip was worried about the chip implanting process. He could only assume that his petite lover was happy about being able to finally understand one another better. "We can start with your Kaynen friend first, and once you see how easy and painless the process is, you'll be blown away," Francisco explained as he motioned for Louie to hop into one of the pods. "Come on, Louie," Zane gently urged the canine. He gave him a gentle scratch as he had him lay down. "Now, stay." Louie's attention shifted to the glass that sealed him in. But, he trusted Zane enough to remain where he was. His eyes followed the Alano as Cisco began to input commands until his eyelids drooped and his head followed until he was fast asleep. "Now, we'll set one of the chips inside…" Cisco said as he gently inserted the chip into a console on the side of the pod. "And the Medbay will do the rest." Pipolphi had seen such a procedure before, but the Medbay still surprised him due to its fast efficiency. Zane, on the other hand, was fascinated as the machine seemed to scan Louie and drew up a holographic map of the body. A zone in a certain area of the canine's brain was then highlighted, and tiny lasers made incisions while a wire (which reminded Zane of a long, white earphone jack) inserted the chip. A few more lasers sealed everything back up, and another several scans rolled over the canine's form, each one healing a different "layer" of Louie's body. "I'm going to have to update your chip, too," Cisco added as he walked over to Pipolphi, holding up a small, curved device to the Sepida's forehead that looked a bit like a wireless mouse to Zane. "It will be able to keep up with the advances of the newer chips. You can take this updater with you for any friends and family members. They'd be able to understand Zane and Louie, but there would still be a few missing words and phrases without the update." By the time the Alano finished the update on Pipolphi's chip, a musical chime had drawn their attention back to the pod. Louie's eyes opened as the glass slid back and he gave a big yawn. Though Zane heard a few gruffs and barks, Pip's eyes appeared bigger than ever as he gazed at the canine. {"Nap was very nice. Dreamed of sweet-smelling goats we saw,"} Louie stated in a low, rumbling voice reminiscent of an actor Zane had called "Vin Diesel." {"Most appreciative of new blanket-cape. Many thanks to moth-man."} {"Don't mention it,"} the Alano responded without missing a beat. The sound of his voice drew Louie's attention to him immediately. {"Moth-man speaks my tongue?"} Louie keened in surprise. {"I can now, too, Louie,"} Pip softly responded with a touch of emotion. {"We can finally understand each other!"} {"Salty Pup speaks my tongue, too?"} the canine questioned as he lifted himself up to a sitting position. Though his tail wagged rapidly behind him, his full attention was on the Sepida. {"Yes! And after Zane gets his chip, he will, as well!"} Pip bounced on his toes, his hair waving so wildly in his excitement that it nearly smacked the human in the face. The little Sepida flung himself at the English Setter and hugged him. {"I have so much I want to say. Thank you so much for being patient with me when I was afraid of you, for finding ways to give me wisdom when I couldn't understand your words, for protecting me and watching over me. I'm honored to call such a warrior my friend and companion."} Pip buried his face in the soft fleece Louie wore, overcome with emotion. The English Setter was quite glad to hear that their Leader Zane would be able to speak his tongue, as well. He sat up straighter, feeling noble and proud with every word that the Sepida said. {"Warrior Louie will always protect Leader Zane and his Salty Pup,"} the canine responded in a warm, rumbling tone of voice. {"Most important thing in life to Louie will always be family. Zane and Salty Pup are Louie's family."} In spite of himself, even Francisco the Alano became a little misty-eyed as he took a step back to give them some time. {"Do you feel okay?"} Pip asked Louie. The Sepida had heard a few horror stories, no doubt exaggerated, about chip implantations gone awry. {"Are you ready to get down? You're not dizzy, are you? No tingling in your limbs? Vision is clear? No ringing in your ears?"} Louie gave the Sepida's cheek a lick. {"Only thirsty."} He responded. {"But, Warrior Louie will live."} Zane looked on, completely lost as he saw and heard Louie appearing to converse with Pipolphi through barks and growls while Pip responded in his usual chirps and trills. "I'm guessing it worked?" He asked hesitantly. "Like a charm," Cisco affirmed. "Your turn next." The human gave a nod. He was a little nervous after having seen the process, but he was willing to do that and more to be able to fully express to Pip how much he loved him. "I'm ready." "Louie is fit as a fiddle," Pip told Zane happily as the dog hopped off the padded table and ambled to where Cisco had pulled a bottle of water out of a chilling cabinet and was pouring it into a dish for Louie. "Ready or not?" Zane smiled and pressed a gentle kiss to the Sepida's lips. "Definitely ready," he repeated. When Cisco was satisfied with Louie's thirst being quenched, he walked over to another pod and motioned for Zane to lay down on it. "You'll have to strip down to your underwear first. The Medbay works faster when it doesn't have to calculate how to get around processed and dyed clothing. It's loads easier when the fabric is completely organic, like with Louie's fleece." The human did as asked and then laid down with his arms at his side. He tried his best to send Pip a last reassuring smile before promptly falling asleep. Once again, Cisco got the pod running, and procedure began. Since he was a much larger mass, the pod took a while longer with healing him from the inside out. But, soon the chime of completion rang in the air. Zane took a long, deep breath as he came to. He was quite surprised at how well-rested and energized he felt. The slight stiffness on the back of his neck was gone, as was a small ache near his ankle from when he had bashed into the corner of Pip's mom's cabinet a day earlier. As his eyes opened, he was surprised at how easily they focused. He could see details he couldn't before. The slate gray eyes immediately sought his Sepida's teal ones, and he smiled. "I'm ok, Pip." The Sepida's large eyes grew impossibly wide. He covered his mouth with both hands, his hair frozen mid-wave. Pip barely breathed as he let Zane's words wash over him. His name said with the inflection that conveyed that it was a shortened form of a longer name. The words before it with the soft churring and upward lilt at the end of the second trill. Three words, such simple ones, but so powerful to Pipolphi that they nearly knocked him over like a rogue wave. Because Zane was speaking Sepida, his voice low and smooth and perfect. And suddenly Pip could say nothing in return, and he was so overcome with the wonder and joy of it. A slight frown formed on the human's face when the petite man said nothing. He pulled up to a sitting position and then rushed over to him to take Pip's face in his hands. "Is everything ok? Did it work? I sure hope you're not hearing something weird in return…" "It's certainly working on my end," Cisco prompted from where he was next to Louie. The sound drew Zane's attention briefly to the Alano. The voice was still very much as he had heard him before, but instead of a slight accent, it sounded like perfect English to him. "It is working!" Zane gasped before peering down at the Sepida's eyes. "Pipolphi of the Sepida in the Waters," He began, having grasped at least that part of Pip's name. Soon, he'd be able to truly grasp the Sepida's full name, as well. "I won't go a minute longer without telling you how much you mean to me. I am yours. I love you more than I ever knew I could love another person. Will you allow me to be by your side for the rest of our collective lives?" Whenever he had imagined confessing his feelings to Pip, he never would have imagined it would be inside a small lab while wearing nothing but underwear. But, what he was or wasn't wearing had been the least of his concerns at that particular moment in time. "Zay." Pip's voice trembled, soft and filled with wonder. "I love you, too. So much. I want to be with you until the seas swallow the sky." Zane knew Pip was speaking Sepida but that his chip was doing some sort of technological magic to flip it into English in his mind. He wasn't prepared for how it hit him to hear his language from his lover's lips when it wasn't a struggle for Pip to find the words. The Sepida's translated voice was still his but without the difficulty, Pip had had stretching his tongue around certain letters and inflections. His voice was soft and sweet, as musical as when Zane heard Pip speaking Sepida. There was a hint of what sounded like a British accent, which made the human smile. It was, somehow, right for his lovely little alien. Louie began to circle around them in excitement. "Leader Zane and Salty Pup both speak my tongue! Warrior Louie is proud they learned," the canine added. The human couldn't help but burst out laughing. As crazy as it was, the Vin Diesel-ish voice actually suited Louie, though it was quite a surprise to hear it. "You call Pip 'Salty Pup?'" he questioned after a moment before he began to pull his clothes back on. "Yes, because he is salty and he is Zane's mate. But Louie is stronger and protects, so he is a pup," Louie explained to his best ability. "Warrior Louie protects his family." Zane reached down to gently scratch one of Louie's ears. "In any case, I'm glad you consider us family. Thank you for protecting my mate," he responded. When the human looked back up, he noticed that the Alano trader seemed to be trying to keep his tears at bay. Cisco wiped at his eyes as he tried to recover from the touching scene. "I'm going to go pack up your things," Cisco said as he headed out of the room back towards his storefront. "If you need another moment, you can stay here for a while longer." "Did you both want to come back to the ship?" Pipolphi asked, his skin a joyful grassy green with blossoms of lime as he beamed at Louie and Zane. "Or would you like to look around some more?" The taller man leaned down to whisper into a webbed ear. "Let's go home. There's a lot I want to ask you about how to court you, but I'd rather do it in private." Zane then peered over at Louie and spoke in a louder voice. "Ready to go, Louie?" "Yes!" Louie replied. "Might see sweet-smelling goat again." "Sweet-smelling goat?" Zane wondered aloud but didn't ask the canine for any further details. The three of them headed to the storefront, where Cisco had everything ready for them. "It's been a real pleasure doing business with you," the Alano admitted as he handed Pipolphi another chip, different from the ones he had packed earlier. "My contact info's here in this chip in case you guys are ever in the area again or need my help finding anything. I have my sources." "You have our deepest gratitude," Pipolphi replied. "You'll definitely hear from us again." The three of them then said their goodbyes to the gray Alano and stepped back out into the fresh air. Louie seemed to have realized that they were heading back to the ship because he suddenly stopped and sniffed at the air. He let out a slight whine that was all too familiar to Zane. "Need to go out, Louie?" Zane prompted. "Yes. May I go tinkle on the rocks?" Louie asked. "Go for it," the human stated. The English Setter wasted no time in hopping off the side of the path and trekking towards the base of the mountainous terrain. He quickly relieved himself and took a moment to take in his surroundings. Though he hadn't mentioned it before, he knew that something had changed when he had woken up in the pod. Louie felt stronger, and he could grasp more of what was being said and done. The biggest surprise was how much he could see. Before, he was only able to see certain hues. But, now he saw many colors he didn't even know the name of. Everything seemed beautiful. And everything except his own pee smelled so nice. One particular scent was downright heavenly. Before he knew it, the canine began to walk towards the lovely scent. ::: It was spring in the mountains. The Hefuan lifted her head, giving it a gentle shake to show off the buttery soft fleece that curled around her long ears and fell across her forehead. Her eyes were a rich, dark brown, deep and soulful. Her forehead met the long line of her face without a single bump before reaching the soft, dextrous lips of her muzzle. Her legs were strong and slender. She stamped one foot, enjoying the thump of her spongy toe pads and click of the sharp hoof. She was strong, she was clever, she was an excellent climber, and her fleece was thick and softer than velvet. She was the first of the young ones to jump the tall places, find the best grazing, brave the Silly People who came once a year to bring them fitting tribute of sweet fern and nuffa berries while shearing away fleece that was too hot and heavy for a comfortable summer. And this season was the season. She would choose her mate, and they would find a new spot on the mountain. Because she was the strongest and best of the ones seeking a mate this year. It was her calling to expand to the new places, find what was there to find and make a home of it. And because of all of that, only the best of mates would do. He must be a match for her. She'd have nothing less. He would be strong, agile, quick, and have the softest and healthiest of coats. Unfortunately, she wasn't having much luck with all of that. Normally sweet and docile, Hefuan females were known to rebuff unwanted suitors rather firmly. She had already kicked two males and headbutted another who had thought they were up to snuff. She'd quickly disabused them of such ideas. She sighed, her head drooping slightly. It was her second season with no mate. Last season had held no one worthy. This year was looking the same. It made her doubt herself, wonder if she shouldn't have kicked the last one. Then, she saw him. And he was magnificent. Bigger than any Hefuan male she'd ever seen, leaping over a thick scrub bush like it was nothing. His eyes were clear and sharp. His fleece was a bit odd looking around the edges, but it was soft and full. She would have him. There was no other option. She stomped her foot twice, signaling the big male to see her. When Louie neared the end of his scent trail, his attention was drawn to the fluffiest and loveliest goat he had ever seen. She smelled heavenly. He let out an instinctive howl after having found such a treasure and promptly trotted over to her. One thing that became quite apparent was that the female goat seemed to be in heat. So, after sniffing around her rump, Louie straightened back up and turned his head to look into her dark brown eyes. He let out a soft whimper of concerned confusion. ::: When Louie finally headed back to Zane and Pip, the two men were surprised that he had brought company. "Louie? Who's this you found?" Zane asked. "This is my mate," Louie explained. "She will follow me forever." "What!? Your mate?" the human questioned in shock. "It doesn't matter whether you win by an inch or a mile," Louie insisted, his voice once again rumbling into the familiar tone of Zane's favorite actor. "Winning is winning." The Hefuan didn't like the noise the Silly Person made. It might be threatening toward her mate. And even though she couldn't understand a thing her mate said, she was more than a little protective and territorial around strangers. "Mine!" she bleated, head-butting the giant in the shin. "You be nice and sweet to my mate! I will stomp your toes off!" Her hooves clacked against the stone beneath their feet to let them know she meant business. "I can understand her!" Pip chirped. "This language upgrade is amazing!" "I wasn't being mean to your mate!" Zane gasped in an indignant tone. "Wait, even though we can understand her, she might not be able to understand us without a chip, right?" "I don't believe she can." Pip looked to Louie, keeping his tone soft and gentle and his skin a non-threatening lavender. "Does she understand you? How did this all come about?" "Went to tinkle near the mountain," Louie responded. "Followed the best scent to her. She likes my scent, too. We are mates." "How romantic," Pip said dreamily. "And she wants to come with you?" The Sepida frowned. "Are you sure she understands what that means? There are none of her kind except on the mountains of this planet, as far as I know. She's alright leaving her family and the other Hefuan here? I mean, she could visit whenever she likes. Tilly and I make runs here regularly." "Being mates mean following," Louie insisted. "Ah!" Pip said suddenly, making Zane wince as Louie's girlfriend reflexively butted him again at the sound. "Oh, I'm sorry, Zay. I was just thinking, if she and Louie want, we can go back to Cisco right now and give her a chip. Then she'd be able to understand us like we understand her." "Yeah, I'm all for that plan," Zane responded immediately. "She's a strong one." "She will speak my tongue?" Louie questioned. "I would like that very much." The Hefuan was nervous as she followed her mate into the place the Silly People lived, her short, fluffy tail twitching in agitation. But she was brave and strong. If her mate went there, she would follow, as she knew he would follow her wherever she went. She stayed tight to his side, taking comfort from his strong body and confidence. Her heart did a happy flip as she turned her head to look at him. He wasn't handsome, by normal standards. Yet there was something about his features that appealed to her in a way that made her want to find a private place to get closer to him. Much closer. So, she followed him, head held high as she ignored all the Silly People and strange smells and sights. They stopped in a place that was crowded with odd things and a Silly Person she recognized. She tried not to tremble in relief. "Hello, Rescuer Cisco. Your cave is very strange." She leaned into her mate's side. "This one is mine. Do you see how big and strong he is? He's also clever and agile, and his tail is longer than any I've ever seen. His spirit is sure to give me giant twins. Maybe triplets." The thought made her stomp a hoof nervously. "He'll come to you if the young get stuck like my sister's and you will come and bring your magic." "Lilly?" Cisco wondered aloud as he walked on over. He gently petted her head. "She says Louie's her mate?" "Your guess is as good as ours," Zane confessed. "Think you can give her a translating chip so she can understand us?" "Yes, that won't be a problem. It's been proven that the Hefuan have at least a rudimentary language, so a chip should work for her," Cisco mused as Pip handed him one of the chips. "Louie, would you be so kind as to lead your mate to one of the pods?" "Absolutely," Louie affirmed as he did just that. When Cisco arrived, the two of them were lying down next to each other in one of the pods. The Hefuan was nuzzling behind Louie's ears affectionately, "Should Louie come down?" Zane questioned. "This Medbay model's the latest, so it won't balk at having a second person inside," the Alano replied as he inserted the chip into the device and began the process. "I never would have guessed that one of our Hefuans would end up leaving with your group, as well. Lilly's quite the spitfire. Tried to headbutt me until she realized I was trying to save her sister." "Oh, believe me," Zane said as he rubbed his leg. "We know." "I hope she doesn't mind the chip," Pip worried. "What if she doesn't want to understand what everyone says? What if it upsets or scares her? Can you safely remove it if it's something she doesn't want?" "Of course," Cisco soothed. "If she wants me to, I'll take it out. No charge." The Alano glanced at the pod. "We'll find out shortly. She's waking up." The Hefuan yawned widely, warm and comfortable next to her mate. She nibbled his chin then stretched as Louie licked her cheek. She blinked at all the Silly People staring at her. "Do I have a bur stuck to my forehead or something?" Lilly asked, frustrated when her eyes wouldn't roll high enough to see. If she did, she knew her mate would take it out for her. He could probably even do it without pulling her hair and hurting her. Her mate was the best. "No, you are the loveliest," Louie responded as he gave her another lick on the cheek. "The most beautiful." She nuzzled at him before pulling her head back, cocking it to the side. "You can talk now?" She let out a dreamy snuffle. "Your baa is so low and deep…" "So," Zane began hesitantly. "She can understand us now?" "Lilly," Cisco called. "Do you like being able to understand us 'Silly People?' Or would you rather go back to being understood by others, but not understanding them?" The Hefuan blinked slowly, working through what Cisco had said. "You'd take your magic back that lets my strong mate and others speak properly?" she asked, sounding scandalized. The hoof stomp wasn't nearly as impressive as it should have been since she was laying down on soft material. Lilly hoped it still conveyed her feelings. "You will not!" The Alano turned towards the Sepida. "There you have it," he concluded. "I won't take anything back, Lilly, you can relax. We just wanted to make sure we had your consent." "So, you really do consider yourself Louie's mate, Lilly?" Zane gently questioned. "Of course." She shook her head, making her hair floof and her ears flap. "What a ridiculous question. He's mine." Lilly looked to Louie. "I see now why you are around these Silly People. They clearly need your guidance and assistance more than any natural herd." She seemed to think about that. "Are they your adopted herd, then? You lead them and keep them safe?" "Louie's a warrior. I keep my family safe," the canine responded, his tail wagging at the thought of his mate thinking so highly of him. "But the Leader is Zane." He added as he pointed his muzzle towards the human in question. "Mr. Silly and Tall? But, he looks so weak," Lilly continued candidly. Though she had easily dismissed the Water Person as the leader for his frailty, she didn't expect the group's leader to be the one she had headbutted earlier. "No matter. The two of us can handle anything." She concluded as she nuzzled against her mate once more and he gave her another appreciative lick on her cheek. Louie's mate was definitely going to be a handful, Zane thought to himself. He was aware, more than ever, that he had to take care what to say from now on. Though the wonders and convenience of translators were truly a godsend, it also meant that many others would be able to understand him. He didn't want to offend anyone by accident. On the subject of mates, the human turned his gaze back to his beloved Sepida. He had guessed that Pipolphi was a romantic at heart, but it was certainly much better to hear it confirmed from the smaller man's own mouth. He also had a big heart...or was it multiple hearts? Zane could have sworn that he heard more than one heartbeat whenever he rested his head near the Sepida's chest. However, Zane had always known that Pip was kind. Kind enough to defend an innocent child. Kind enough to release prisoners even while trying to save his friend. Kind enough to be concerned over the wellbeing of a bully. Kind enough to frown about not having an alien goat's consent before she was able to give it. Zane's feelings for him were still the same. "Shall we head back now, my love?" He asked aloud. "Yes." Pipolphi flashed a bright, happy green. "We have so much to talk about." The Sepida's hair petted Zane's bicep as Pip hugged his human's arm, saying a cheerful goodbye to Cisco as their diverse little family left the Alano's shop.

    Chapter 15

    When Galieth and Munklad neared the dome that Pipolphi lived in, the pink Sepida stopped in his tracks. He started walking back towards his cousin's dome. But, then he stopped and marched his way back towards Pip's dome. A quivering wave of fearful black rolled over his skin for a moment, causing him to rush back towards Mun's dome, only for him to stop and turn a mustard hue of embarrassment. Galieth felt his hearts thump in his chest before he turned around and walked more determined than ever towards Pipolphi's dome. He made sure to grasp Munklad's hand tightly as they approached. His skin became a lighter pink hue, barely indistinguishable, but Mun was able to recognize it as pure worry. Before they knew it, Pipolphi's giant stepped out of the door, followed by Pip himself. Munklad nudged his cousin and lover forward even though Galieth stiffly pushed back against his hands with his heels digging into the sand, the two of them resembling one domino tilted against the other. {"What are you doing here?"} Pipolphi asked in a suspicious tone of voice. {"Zay is a foreigner, and he only reacted on instinct-"} He paused when Galieth shook his head. {"I...I…"} He trailed off as he glanced from the super tall alien with small eyes to Pip and back again. He took a deep breath, but it was the warmth of Munklad's hands on his shoulders that managed to calm him down to a hue that was somewhere between pink and lavender. {"Pipolphi Ets Dejunsi...I've come to apologize."} Galieth shot a quick glance to the alien man once again. {"To both of you."} {"Munklad,"} Pip said worriedly, turning a pink similar to Galieth's. {"Is he alright? Is he sick? Does he need a healer?"} Pipolphi held out his arms as though to catch Galieth, who he thought was likely to drop at any moment. Munklad held a hand out as if to dispute it. {"He's fine. Just hear him out. Go on, Gally."} He gently urged. {"Listen, I've been a muddy idiot all this time, and I didn't think I could have what was right in front of me, so I made everyone else's lives miserable for it!"} Galieth confessed. {"Mostly yours, but that's why I'm here. I'm sorry for everything I've done to you. You were right; I wasn't happy on the inside."} He reached out to take hold of Munklad's hand again. {"But, I am now. Happier than I could have ever imagined. Happier than I even deserve."} Pip did his best to translate for his human, using the time to get over his shock. This seemed completely out of character for the little bully. What had happened to change things? Pipolphi took in the Sepida in front of him, taking in Munklad's protective stance and hand in Galieth's. Ohhhhh. {"You wanted to be with Munklad and thought you couldn't, so you took your pain out on everyone else,"} Pipolphi said sympathetically. Poor Galieth. That had to have been terrible for him. Pip couldn't imagine loving Zane as much as he did and wasn't able to be with the human. It would break his hearts. {"I'm so glad you've worked things out and can be together! I'm so happy for you!"} Pip turned to Zane. "Munklad is Galieth's Buttercup. Galieth is happy now. He won't be a jerkface." Galieth found himself blushing hard. How the hell could he ever try to explain otherwise after he went and said something like that? What did it matter that Pipolphi never understood that he once had such a big crush on him? The pink Sepida peered over at his mate before nodding his head. {"Yes. That just about sums it up."} He said aloud. {"I can't promise that I won't say something stupid or offensive in the future...but, I will try not to lash out in anger at either of you ever again."} "Oh, so was that him saying sorry?" Zane deduced. "That's a relief to hear! Well done, little guy!" He exclaimed as he reached over to ruffle the top of the tiny Sepida's head. A happy flash of green appeared on Galieth's skin at the contact. Why would the foreigner's approval feel nice? What did he need the giant's approval for in the first place? Though the green became more yellowish due to embarrassment, the green of contentment persisted. Munklad chuckled and copied the big alien, rubbing his fingers over Galieth's hair tentacles. {"Good job, Gally."} His voice lowered. {"I'll have to reward you later."} The yellow-green bled to blue so fast that it startled Munklad before the taller Sepida stepped forward to hide Galieth from view. {"That being said, I think it's time I take Galieth home. We wish you both the best,"} he quickly responded as he rushed off with the smaller Sepida. "Galieth gonna get some." Pip giggled as the new couple rushed off in the distance. He then looked up at Zane. "Ready to go get all the new words put in your brains?" "Am I ever!" Zane responded as he called for Louie. The canine rushed over to them immediately. As the three of them headed back to Pip's ship, the human pondered. "So blue really does mean naughty feelings…" "I should be always blue when with you," Pip had to admit, taking Zane's hand. "I like seeing all of the colors on you," Zane mused as he threaded their fingers. "Then again, I love all of you." "Love you," Pip crooned. "All of Zane." The Sepida chirped and glanced at Zane's crotch. "Love-love some parts. Better than chocolate." The taller man couldn't help but laugh. "Those parts all belong to you, as well," he admitted. Once again, as they walked along the shore, a few Sepida gave them odd looks. But, only one in ten were actually fearful enough to camouflage out of sight. Since many of them had seen them with Tilbei before, they didn't consider Zane and Louie as much of a threat. The canine in question became a bit anxious when they boarded the ship, but Zane did his best to calm him down during take off. In less than ten minutes, they arrived at the planet's only spaceport. It was placed purposely in an area of little interest to the ocean-loving inhabitants. The port sprawled up and down the side of a craggy mountain on one of the world's larger islands. There was little life on the mountain besides sad-looking scrub bushes and the fuzzy goat-like animals that ate them. The port looked like a cluster of huge silver eggs glued to the side of the mountain. It had been built by a company of hopeful Pthanesians who had an interesting sense of esthetics. The transport pods that were constantly zipping around matched the port were all shining silver as they popped around either delivering the planet's residents or going to pick them up. The ruling government of the time hadn't really thought through having a spaceport that Sepida and Nubra might want to visit but could never access without a flying ride. The government had grumbled about paying for half the costs of the transports but had caved under pressure from constituents. Pip bounced impatiently in his chair as he waited for the automated transport in front of him to finally dock, allowing Pipolphi to find a free slot to do the same. He was going to be able to talk to Zane and Louie! Pip could hardly contain his excitement. He'd been so frustrated at the stilted conversations and misunderstandings between himself and Zane. It was even worse with Louie, Pip being entirely unable to make sense of the Irish Setter's clearly complex speech. At least Zane's language had been simple enough that the Sepida could have enough translated to get by. Surprisingly, even Zane seemed to have a somewhat limited understanding of Louie's language, which was amazing to Pip since they'd lived together for years. Louie seemed capable of at least understanding English, though unable to speak it. Tilbei had told Pip that he'd heard about a race that had no mouth parts and was unable to even create many of the more common speech noises. Instead, they forced air into a throat bladder and expelled it in whistles and shrieks through modified gills. Pipolphi wondered if Louie's anatomy was different enough somehow to make him unable to speak English. The Setter seemed excited at the prospect of finally being able to communicate fully, bouncing next to Pip as they exited the ship and signed in with Port Authority. Pipolphi found an information kiosk and looked up where to find the shop that could upgrade and implant language chips. The Sepida felt a bubble of worry. What if they wouldn't take trade? Pip knew Sepida aphrodisiacs were considered incredibly valuable, but he had no idea how to actually sell it himself without risking exposure to unsavory types. They might pay him for it or might just kidnap him to get a constant supply. His recent experiences made Pip more than a little wary. Language chip vendors were well-regulated and carefully monitored by multiple interstellar agencies due to the importance of the product. Prices and protocols were strictly controlled. Payment accepted was a bit more flexible depending on the vendor and if they had any side-businesses. There were no customers in the shop when they entered. It seemed to be more than just selling chips and language upgrades. The place was crammed with everything from terribly ugly souvenirs to interesting fruits and even a few holo-displays of spaceships for sale. Pip let out a happy trill, hope rising that he'd be able to trade a bit of himself for everything they wanted. Pipolphi wasted no time going to the counter and ringing the buzzer. {"I'm coming, I'm coming,"} came a whine from the back as a lithe and fey-like young man emerged. His skin was a soft gray all over with darker gray spots. Cuffs and earrings adorned a set of pointed ears. He had silver hair in an asymmetrical bob and blue eyes that were magnified by the pair of digital goggles that he quickly slid up onto his head like a headband. The movement caused his long, feathery antennae to sweep down over his scalp. When he saw his new customers, his eyes widened. {"Don't remember the last time I saw a Sepida without a protective Nubra walking into my store. The name's Cisco. Alano trader extraordinaire. How can I help you today?"} {"My very large mate who is also extremely protective watches over me as well as any Nubra,"} Pipolphi said warily, suddenly afraid that someone might see he was without a Nubra companion and think he was easy prey. {"And our companion, Louie the Fierce and Noble, has huge pointy teeth and is just as protective as my mate."} Pip couldn't help the anxious gray that colored him, making him very nearly match the Alano shopkeeper, but he tried to force the flickers of frightened black away with more success. Cisco held his hands up in the universal expression of being unarmed. {"Now, now,"} He responded with a chuckle. {"I've just a passion for trading and collecting rare items and substances, not people. I'm not like that."} He tilted his head slightly as he regarded the tall man and the smaller Kaynen. {"I figure that little guy's a Kaynen. But, I don't think I've met a foreigner like your bodyguard there. Not for a long time. Is it too rude for me to ask what species he is?"} {"Zay is human from Earth. He speaks English,"} Pipolphi said proudly, his gray skintone flickering to relieved starbursts of white and green at the shopkeeper's reassurances. Pip didn't know why, but he felt he could trust the alien not to hurt them. He seemed so forthright and friendly. Although, Pip had to remind himself that Cisco's coloring didn't mean the Alano was anxious. Pipolphi rubbed Louie's ears, causing the Irish Setter's tongue to hang and his eyes to roll in ecstasy. {"Louie was also born on earth. I don't know what he speaks, but he understands English and is very intelligent and able to convey quite a bit non-verbally. Especially when he wants a certain food. It's truly amazing. I was hoping to have Zay and Louie chipped and my chip upgraded to understand their languages. I know a bit of English, but it's woefully incomplete."} {"Oh, I have plenty of state-of-the-art translator chips,"} Cisco responded. Though it was rare, there had been a few humans he had crossed paths with in the past. The newer models of the chips had a more advanced adaptive learning, which meant that there weren't many languages that were unable to be translated. {"They do get pricey, though. How many credits can you afford? I do have payment plans, but to keep up with costs, they're quite short."} {"Ahnnn, well, I was hoping you perhaps accepted trade?"} Pip flashed yellow and looked at the Alano hopefully. The Alano raised an elegant silver eyebrow. {"Trade? It depends on what kind of trade,"} Cisco admitted. {"What did you have in mind?"} {"My, well…"} Pipolphi straightened his spine, refusing to allow embarrassment to turn him an ugly mustard. He was a liberated, mostly self-sufficient adult. His body was his own, and there was no shame in what he was doing. Not that he would ever tell his parents. Pip would rather bite off his own tentacles. Slowly. The Sepida steeled himself and continued. {"I offer some of my deep essence in exchange."} Pip's hair tentacles couldn't seem to decide if they wanted to braid up sensually or fly around in agitation. Bright blue eyes widened in surprise. {"Wait, you mean your aphrodisiac essence?"} He questioned. {"Just a small vial of that is worth ten of the chips and more! Are you sure?"} {"If you have the way to extract it without too much pain or damage to me,"} Pip said quickly, shivering slightly. He knew how thieves quickly and roughly stole the essence from a Sepida. The warnings of what would happen if someone greedy and unscrupulous got a Sepida alone was whispered urgently and with deadly seriousness in the juvenile pools by elders to the young Sepida as well as Nubra. It was an admonition to never trust strangers and stay with a Nubra protector whenever possible. Pipolphi knew he would find another way to get Zane and Louie the chips if he had to. It would just take longer to come up with the money, and Pip was impatient to talk, really talk, with his lover and friend. {"Well, there are a good few ways to do it,"} the Alano mused aloud. {"Some ways are more embarrassing than others, but none would be painful at all. For example, the last Sepida that offered his essence enjoyed the pleasuring machine I had so much that I just gave him one that he could take home with him. His partner really liked it, too. That reminds me! I have a room that is always sterilized, and your partner is more than welcome to help you release your essence into a container. I don't even have to be inside the room. It can be private."} Pipolphi chirped, willing his hair tentacles to stop trying to braid up and embarrass the life out of him. They were in public; Pip reminded his obviously slutty tentacles, it wasn't appropriate to have them coil up like he was some wanton thing. The Sepida's hair quivered but behaved. {"Is it alright if Louie waits here?"} Pipolphi looked to the Irish Setter who was snuffling a soft blanket made from the wool of the goat-like creatures that lived on the mountain. Louie turned his attention to the Sepida, hearing his name. "Stay is okay, Louie?" Pip asked. Louie didn't hesitate to flop his lower half down into a sitting position. He was asked to "stay" so he would. When no one was looking, he'd investigate the lovely smelling blanket further. {"Uh, that's fine. The room is this way,"} Cisco explained as he pressed his hand to the biometric key on the side of a set of doors and led them down a brightly lit hallway. He stopped when they reached a third set of doors. {"So, which would you prefer? The machine, or just your partner alone?"} {"How does the machine work?"} Pip asked, walking with his hand in Zane's. With his free hand, the Sepida swatted a lock of hair that tried to braid itself. {"It's a fantastic tool that was designed with Sepida in mind. A small group of Sepida had been in a- well, maybe I shouldn't go too much into those details. The point is that it hadn't been designed as an extractor at first, just a fancy sex toy,"} Francisco explained as he unzipped a flat, round case. The contraption was coiled in a colorful swirl and had two bags with two other objects on the side. After the Alano pressed a button, the coils unfurled to reveal clips at one end and a curved, silicone-like object on the other. {"This right here is a prostate stimulator. It vibrates right on your sweet spot while these coils up here twist your braids tighter than what's normally possible. The twisting's usually not enough to really hurt, but the settings can be changed depending on your tolerance.} {"There are two ways you can do this. I can attach a tool right here that helps to milk your essence, or you can have your partner do the "milking." Either way, a vacuum sensor will take over once you're close to climax. Which would you prefer?"} Cisco asked. {"I, ah, I think I would like my Zay to do that if that's alright."} Pip fought his body's urge to turn mustard with embarrassment. He was an adult, and this was perhaps not an activity that was discussed with juveniles or parents present, but it was hardly taboo. Pipolphi looked at Zane shyly. "Zay help me make some man milk for Cisco cold hard cash?" The human frowned a bit as he tried to grasp what was going on. He looked from the contraption with the suspiciously placed dildo to his Sepida, the Alano, and back. A few conversations had to replay in his mind about what Pip had told him about Hunnars and what they wanted from him before he began to catch on. "Oh! Man milk!" He burst aloud. "Yeah, I can help. What do you need me to do?" "Your Sepida lover wishes to exchange his essence for brand new communication chips," Cisco responded in English when his own chip quickly supplied him with the translation. "The essence of a Sepida is very valuable, enough for as many as ten chips. Since the...extraction...is a very private matter, he would like your help with that part. The machine will stimulate his sensitive areas inside and on his hair. You just need to clip his braids to the coils. When he gets close enough to ejaculation, the machine will simply vacuum the essence up and fold itself up." He then turned towards Pip. {"I will be in the front for when you two are done. Don't worry, this room is free from cameras, and it is also soundproof for your privacy. If you like the machine, you can take it with you, as I can only use a brand new one on a client for sanitation safety."} Cisco gave the tall human a smile. "Your privacy is safe with me. I will be waiting outside with Mr. Louie." Zane nodded as he watched the Alano walk away, the door shutting behind him. "Wow, those chips are something else," he mused aloud. "I understood every word he said. Is that how it will be with us?" He asked Pip. "Zay know my words. I know Zay words." The Sepida tapped one finned ear as he boosted himself onto a padded table that held the device Cisco had left. "You say English; hear Sepida." Pip gestured to the human, a sweet little smile curling his lips. " I say, {I love you with all I am, as the ocean loves the moons and feels the pull in her tides}," Pipolphi said, beginning with English and finishing in his own language, repeating an old saying. In English again, Pip continued, "Zay hear, you are my Buttercup." Pip picked up the odd contraption, nibbling his lip as he decided the best position. He crawled up onto his hands and knees and held out the oddly shaped dildo. The Sepida's smile and tone were still loving and sweet as he said, "Wanna stick this in my booty?" The human returned the smile. Though he didn't understand a lick of what he had said, it still sounded beautiful. He didn't quite feel that "you are my Buttercup" fully encompassed what his Sepida said. But, he got the gist of it. "Let's take a look at that, then," he said as he took hold of the curved dildo. A few things happened at once. The base of the dildo began to gently hum as if it sensed that it was going to be used. The soft outer area seemed to self-lubricate. He slid some of the lubrication off with his fingers and used it to gently stretch his lover's entrance. "This thing's actually kinda cool," he murmured as he carefully inserted it. When the base could go no further, it began to vibrate. "I knew it!" Inside the Sepida's depths, the pleasuring tool seemed to change shape until it was able to make full contact with almost every millimeter of Pipolphi's large prostate, allowing the vibrations to stimulate a generous surface. His slender fingers clenched into fists on the padded surface as his body turned an abrupt and startling blue. Pip's hair was more than happy to be free from the Sepida's control. Each slender tentacle curved and twined with a neighbor, coiling into intricate knots and braids. A drop of precum was already at the tip of Pip's hardening length as he shivered at the sensations and moaned Zane's name. The sound of his lover's voice seemed to travel right down to his shaft as Zane began to carefully attach the clips of the device to each of Pip's braids. The coils began to twirl, tightening the strands even further than they already were within the braids. The human had never seen some of the deep blue hues that rolled down Pip's body. It was as beautiful as it was erotic. "Pip," Zane gasped as he reached down to gently stroke the Sepida's length. "Nnn-ahh!" Pip gasped, voice warbling. His entire body felt overwhelmed with pleasure. It tingled through him, curling his toes and arching his back. His wide turquoise eyes were open but unseeing as his lover's warm hand worked him dizzyingly fast toward a peak that Pipolphi was a little frightened of how intense it was likely going to be. His body began to move, hips arching and rolling as though in the midst of mating. The device inside him pushed hard on his prostate, the vibration shifting to pulse in a thrumming rhythm that drew a harsh cry from the Sepida. The clips on his hair tentacles clicked as they tightened, then loosened, only to tighten again. Pip forgot to breathe as his muscles tightened and Zane's sure strokes grew faster. "Breathe, Pip," Zane urged as he forced himself to look the Sepida in the eye instead of continuing to be enthralled with his smaller lover's current state. "Are you close, love?" He asked softly into a webbed ear. "What do you need me to do?" "Fuck me, Zay!" Pip begged, dragging in a labored breath. As good as the devious device inside him felt, as intense as the pleasure it was churning inside him, Pipolphi wanted his human more. He needed to feel that length and thickness that had amazed and fascinated Pip from the first time he'd seen Zane hard and ready. He wanted to be held tight in big strong arms while he was surrounded by the scent, sound, and feel of the man. Pip wanted Zane to make him come, wanted to feel his body tighten around his human as he let the pleasure wreck him. Zane carefully undid the segment of the device that the vibrating dildo was attached to. He didn't want to mess too much with the part of the tool that was the "catcher" or else all of their efforts would have been in vain. Two small bars were curled beneath the Sepida's thighs and held parallel to the Sepida's shaft. A strange, stretchy material was held at the end of the bars, ready to capture the Sepida's seed. However, the "catcher" did not seem to have any connection to the segment that contained the dildo. The human clambered onto the cot behind his petite lover, his hands sliding up the Sepida's chest as he urged Pip into an upright kneeling position. He wasted no time in slipping inside the other man's depths, since the device had definitely prepared him enough. Zane both felt and heard Pip's body react when he was finally fully sheathed inside. The Sepida's body quivered and tightened around him as Pip let out a shuddering cry. Then Zane's smaller lover was moving against him, fucking himself on the human's hard length. Pip's arms drew up, reaching behind him to curl around the back of Zane's neck, soft sound of pleasure fell from Pipolphi's lips, desperate and breathy. He let out a frustrated whine, unable to get Zane's cock deep enough, rough enough, fast enough. Pip begged in Sepida, words that the human could figure out the meaning to if not the words themselves. Zane was really looking forward to getting that chip and understanding what sounded like beautiful, musical nonsense to him at that point. But, for the time being, he gave the Sepida what he wanted. Zane pressed a kiss to the crook of Pip's neck and used both his hands to grasp the blue man's hips until he was able to use the hold to tug the Sepida into each of his thrusts. Again and again, the human pulled as far back as he could and then slammed back in again. "Pip!" He gasped as he fell into a rhythm that his lover usually enjoyed. Pip's braids were once again tightened and then pulled deliciously by the clips. The Sepida pressed back into Zane as a keening cry tore from the smaller man as the pleasure crashed over him violently. Zane's hands slid up the Sepida's chest and then carefully wrapped around Pipolphi to steady him as the Sepida's come all but exploded from him. The human watched as the "catcher" immediately expanded and a vacuum formed. The material at the end seemed to billow outward like a giant condom-balloon. As the Sepida's shaft twitched, he noted that the trails of cum and pre-cum seemed to roll down the flesh and into the catcher in interlocking swirls. He couldn't help but wonder what it felt like for the whimpering man in his arms, whose blue hue indicated that he was still riding out his pleasure. Then, just as soon as the vacuuming started, it stopped. The bars on the side detached themselves from Pip's thighs and transformed, before his eyes, into a cylinder that looked remarkably like a shiny thermos. The device that had the attached dildo folded itself up, as well, until it was once again a thinly-coiled disc. "Wow," Zane breathed as his own hard shaft gave a twitch inside Pip. "We should get one of those to use at home. Do you think he has a version for humans?" Zane carefully slid out of his lover, ignoring his own erection, as he moved around so that he could look at the Sepida's softening member. "Not a single drop…" He mused, fascinated with the devices and their thoroughness. "How did feel when it began to vacuum it all up?" He asked Pip. "Felt…Mmmnnn…" the Sepida said dreamily. It was hard to express how the rippling suction had drawn his orgasm out until sparks had been flashing in Pip's vision and he thought he would collapse on the table, unable to hold himself up. He'd locked his elbows and ridden it out. He was dreamy-eyed when he smiled up at his lover, then Pipolphi's eyes lowered, and he blinked at Zane. "Zay didn't get happy ending…" Zane smiled at the petite man. "But, Pip, you are my happy ending," he responded in a serious tone. Cheesy as it was to admit, it was the truth. In spite of his accomplishments as an Olympic gymnast, he led a solitary life. The only people he considered close enough to call family were his cousin, Adrian, and Louie. Even then, Adrian became withdrawn after the death of his dad and he eventually lost contact with him. And, while Louie was a loyal companion, he wasn't Pipholphi. "We can deal with my pleasure later at home," the human insisted as he pulled his pants back up and picked up the device and the thermos-looking catcher. "For now, we should get those communication chips, don't you think?" "But, Zay!" Pip cried as he was swept from the room with his human's strong arm tucked around his lower back. The Sepida's legs were still a bit wobbly, so he was grateful for the support. "Your blue balls…Ah, hello, Cisco." Pip gave the Alano a smile that was still a bit slow and dreamy. The Sepida finally knew what Tilly meant by 'fuck-drunk.' Pipolphi was amazed he could string two words together. He mostly wanted to curl up on Zane's chest and purr like…He had trouble thinking of the Earth word for the animal he was thinking of. Duck? Yes, that was it. Pip wanted to cuddle up on the wide, strong chest of his lover, purring like a happy little duck. Francisco had just finished tying a fleece made of the fur of a particular goat around Louie as a gift. He fashioned it so that it looked like a hooded cape with slots for the ears. "I was just giving your friend here a gift since he seemed to like this fleece so much…" Cisco explained, automatically speaking in English so that Zane could understand. He smiled at the state Pip seemed to be in and placed a hand on the human's shoulder as he whispered. "Don't worry; he'll be fine. All Sepida end up a little overwhelmed with the device." "Where can we get one of these?" Zane mused aloud. "This one is yours," Cisco responded as he took hold of the catcher and headed behind the counter. "Consider it a gift." He set the catcher on the counter and busied about getting several communicator chips nested into a case. "I'm placing ten chips in this case for you," he told the Sepida. "And if there's anything else that catches your eye, just let me know." "The trade's worth that much?" Zane asked. "At least," Cisco replied. "So, please, feel free to take a look around for something for yourself." The human looked around the shop, his gaze falling on something familiar. "Are those red and white retro varsities?" He questioned as he walked closer to the sports shoes. The more he looked at them, the more he realized they were similar, but not the real versions of the shoes he thought. "Those? They were designed by another tall human some months ago," Cisco explained. "Not sure if they were really designed after the ones you mentioned. But, I got myself a good few of them. Feel free to look for any that might fit you." As Zane looked at the boxes, he was impressed with how they appeared like the shoe boxes back home. Even the sizes were listed straight across, in US, European, UK, inches, and even centimeters. "Guy must have been from Earth," he murmured as he pulled a pair on, finding them to be a perfect fit. "If you want, I have a lab where I can implant the chips for you," Cisco offered. "Louie, wanna get a chip in your noggin?" Pip cooed to the canine from where he was sitting and leaning on Louie, rubbing the dog's silky ears where they stuck out of the adorable fleece. The English Setter gave the Sepida's hand an appreciative lick. Mmmm, salty. "Will it...hurt?" Zane asked in concern, having rather not have Louie undergo anything painful. "No, you'd be in a Medbay unit asleep for a bit. Then, when you wake up, it'll be a whole new experience," Cisco elaborated. "You'll be able to understand almost any language in the known universe, and the chip is upgraded automatically whenever new languages are discovered and translated. Lifetime guarantee." :: a/n: If anyone wants to see a rendition of Cisco, the link will be in the comments below.

The singular versions still made no difference in the end result. Crossing the Moon is still the most popular of our collaborations, according to the numbers.

    I'll try to draw more Lust Series sketches on the side, @Timothy M.!

    If I manage to get this ball rolling, I'll let everyone know where and when I start posting the webcomic. :D

    Still a solid brown hue of depression, Galieth pressed on. He was quite upset to know just how much that tall giant meant to Pipolphi. For some reason, he had believed that one day, he'd be able to be more honest with Pip and they would bond. What an idiot he was. The tiny Sepida rushed along faster than his cousin and their friends until he ducked into Munklad's private dome. Munk blew out a breath, gesturing to their other friends to go. Munklad would take care of Galieth like he always did. Setran and Arolby looked sympathetic but didn't argue. Managing their petite companion could be tricky in the best of times. It was like navigating a Hesserack breeding ground when Galieth was wound up. Munklad was feeling a bit wound up, himself. He was still trying to process what had happened. Munk had been about to say something to calm Galieth and try to get the little pink Sepida to ease off on his harassment of Pipolphi. Munk had often been roped into the torment of the tall Sepida many times in their youth. Just thinking of it made his normally muddy-blue skin turn salmon pink with shame. Munklad had never joined in on the verbal taunts of Pip, but he had done other things that Galieth had talked him into doing. After Munklad's ceremony of adulthood, he'd refused to take part in Pipolphi's torment. He wouldn't directly stop Gal's activities but would do his best to redirect his cousin's attention and would no longer help Galieth in any cruel pranks. Gal hadn't taken Munk's 'betrayal' well, refusing to speak to his bigger cousin for a full cycle. Munklad didn't regret it, no matter how much Galieth's anger had hurt. Munk had thought many times of apologizing to Pipolphi but he couldn't seem to overcome his shame enough to approach the tall Sepida. Munk shook his head, rubbing the headache simmering above his right eye. Before he'd been able to do anything to help Pipolphi, a giant alien had been on them. The great creature had plucked up Galieth, and Munklad had been sure he was about to see his cousin's gory death before his eyes. Munk had lunged forward, only to be held back by Setran and Arolby. Munklad's struggles died, and he stared, frozen, as the giant used his massive hand to spank Galieth like a criminal convicted and sentenced to corporal punishment. Munk could tell the big alien hadn't struck Gal hard. It was obvious that the man was holding back his strength. Munklad was horrified, sure that Galieth would go mad at being treated like a criminal. And then Gal had turned blue. Munklad rubbed a hand over his face, trying to get the image out of his head. His cousin's skin flashing sapphire with dirty arousal as the final slaps of flesh against flesh resonated in the air...a part of him felt a guilty pleasure to be able to see such a thing. He had never seen his cousin turn blue before. Another part of him had become aggravated that everyone else witnessed it, too. He'd have preferred to see Galieth turning blue in private, for his eyes only. Cousins could bond and mate. It wasn't exactly common, but it happened, and no one really batted a lash at it. Munk had thought about it ever since they'd been moved to the juvenile pool, years ago, and seen the antics of some of the older Sepida. Munk had held back, waiting for the right time. Maybe a little afraid of rejection, of losing Galieth's friendship if he said anything. He'd been a coward, keeping any randy youths away from his cousin with a glare or a colorful, aggressive display. Gal had always laughed when it happened and told Munk he was too protective. They'd left the pools of youth and entered adulthood and still, he'd said nothing. Seeing Galieth's skin painted with the sapphire shades of arousal from another's hands had shocked Munk. He realized he was going to lose his cousin someday to someone else. Someone who wouldn't understand Galieth's tempers and insecurities. Someone that wasn't Munk. With that thought on his mind, Munklad went in the dome to find his cousin. Galieth was pacing about inside. Though the base of his skin was still brown, he was nearly a rainbow of striped colors as he ranted into the air. "A giant! He fell for a big, freaky, foreigner of all things!" The tiny Sepida's long hair strands swayed every time he turned his heel and paced from one end to another. "I won't stand for this! When Pip is not looking, I...I'll drown his tall troll! That's what I'll do!" He continued to rant as he paced. "He'll rue the day he ever so much as touched me!" "As for Pip, I'll-" Galieth trailed off and stood in place as he recalled the taller Sepida's last words to him. '...you're so dark on the inside,' he had said. 'Doesn't it hurt you?' Once again, he became a solid brown hue all over. Gal just stood there in the middle of the room, staring at the ground. They had all seen Pip defending someone before. He'd done so for that Nubra, Tilbei, of course. However, Galieth hadn't ever seen the tall Sepida so passionate about defending someone as he did that giant. The short Sepida wiped away the tears that had somehow rolled down his cheeks. The brown hue of his skin shifted into a defiant red. "How dare they do this to me!?" He started back up again, this time stomping from one end of the room to the other. "They'll both be sorry! I'll get them back! I don't care what it takes!" "Cousin, calm yourself before you ink," Munklad said from the archway, forcing his tone to be as mild as the lavender shade he pushed into his skin. Galieth had been so wrapped up in his ranting that he very nearly did ink himself. "Mun…" He paused for the slightest moment. But, then he started back up again. "I'm not calming down," He retorted, still a defiant red hue all over. "I'm seeking revenge. On both of them." "Enough of this. Come for a swim with me and forget the giant and Pipolphi. You did so well while he and his Nubra were gone." Galieth's hair began to tremble as he shook with unchecked rage. "So, now you're taking their side? My own cousin!?" "You know I'm not. I've always been there for you." Munklad sighed softly. "I'm just worried about you. I want you to be happy. This vendetta against Pipolphi, it's not good for you. It's been years. Can't you let it go?" "Like a novice Nubra, I'd let it go!" Gal countered. "They humiliated me...that giant even…" he trailed off, blushing for a moment. "I'll get them both back for what they did!" "What exactly did they do?" the larger Sepida demanded, beginning to lose his lavender coloring. "You attacked Pipolphi, again. You said you wouldn't do that anymore after you complained about how touching him disgusted you. Then, the biggest alien I've ever seen didn't tear your limbs off and snap you in half like he clearly could have." Munklad stopped Galieth's frantic pacing by standing in front of the smaller man and gripping his shoulders. "We're not hatchlings anymore, Gal. This is getting dangerous. We don't know anything about that alien. He didn't hurt you badly this time. Next time you might not be so lucky. Leave Pipolphi alone, forget him. You should have done it a long time ago." "That's easy for you to say," the smaller Sepida huffed as he shoved his cousin away. "Your pride wasn't hurt in the slightest. Your body didn't decide to betray you over the shoulder of a stranger!" He insisted before his voice fell down an octave in an obstinate manner. "Forget it, I'll do it with or without anyone's help." "No. Not this time." Munk said with equal determination. "I've let you go on with this madness for years. I thought you'd get it out of your system, but you won't, will you? You'll push this until you end up hurt or maybe killed. You think I'll just stand aside and let that happen? You're…you're my best friend, Gally, my most important person. You're done. No revenge. No saying cruel things or nasty pranks. You're leaving Pipolphi and his alien alone from now on." Galieth flickered white with brief surprise. "I'm your most important…?" He faltered for a second. He had never seen Munklad being so adamant...not since the time he decided to stop going along with his Pip-torture plans. But, Gal was still more stubborn. "I will still do as please!" He countered. "Is it that what you really want? Some kind of revenge for I don't even know what, anymore? I've never seen Pipolphi do anything to you. He's never even retaliated for the things you've pulled…things I used to do that you talked me into." Munk advanced on his cousin. Munklad was a bit on the tall side for a Sepida, but still within the range of normal. He wasn't as slender as most, carrying a more muscular bulk. Though he still looked willowy next to someone as broad and built as Pipolphi's alien, it was certainly still intimidating to other Sepida. He'd never used his size on Galieth before, never tried to make his cousin back down and feel smaller. Until now. "Do you want the giant's hands on you again?" Munk asked, voice dangerously low as flashes of red burst on his skin. "Don't tell me you didn't like it, I saw you all pretty and blue as he smacked your ass." Before he even realized it, Galieth began to flash in a challenge display, angry at the embarrassment his cousin brought back up. But, instead of admitting to it, he denied it. "Of course I don't," He hissed back. "How dare you even bring that moment back up?" "Are you trying to lie to yourself or to me? Because don't even try it with me. I know you too well." Munk didn't stop advancing until they were nearly touching. "Is that why you kept pushing Pipolphi? He's tall. You thought maybe he was strong enough to take you over his knee if he lost his temper? But he never did, did he." Munklad leaned close. "You don't have to go to Pipolphi or some alien if that's what you need. You only had to ask. You know I'd tame the tides if you wished for it." At first, Galieth's skin turned a deep mustard hue of embarrassment. How the hell had Mun figured out all of his deepest, darkest secrets? The ones that he refused to admit he even had? From the top of his head to the tips of his tiny toes, swirls of guilty salmon overtook the mustard hue, chased by swirls of shameful blue at the thought of his own cousin touching him that way. The small Sepida couldn't even bring himself to look Munklad in the eye as his long hair began to curl, something he hadn't ever shown anyone else. "A-Are you playing with me right now?" He questioned. "You can't be serious." "Serious as a riptide." Mun's hue shifted between red and a growing sapphire as he reached out, his fingers tracing down Galieth's side then back to cup the smaller man's backside. Munklad turned a bright, brilliant sapphire, his hair tangling and tightening. "Gally," he whispered, breathless, before tightening his hold and squeezing the flesh under his hand almost hard enough to bruise. "Tell me you want this." Galieth had always had difficulties with controlling his chlomatophores, and it was because he couldn't control it that he found himself turning a solid blue as his hair braided itself into a long Rapunzel-like braid. "I-I don't…" he sputtered, suddenly unsure of everything that led up to that moment. "I mean, I don't know if we should...M-Mun, what do you want in all of this?" "You," he said simply, before sweeping a stunned Galieth into his arms and striding down the hall and into the bedroom. Galieth's treacherous body flashed a lime green of excitement as he was carried off. All thoughts of Pipolphi, that tall foreign alien, and what they had been arguing about before...it all fled his mind faster than water flowing down river rapids. Why was Munklad doing all this? Galieth had never seen Mun aroused so up close before. Maybe his anger fueled arousal somehow? He wanted to ask his cousin so many questions, but he didn't want to do anything to break the taller Sepida's mood. Gal chirped in surprise as he was tossed into the middle of the sturdy, round bed. Mun crawled in after him, a predatory gleam in his golden eyes. "Would you like to be over my knee? Or should I flip you onto your belly and pin your wrists above your head with one hand while I spank you with the other?" Munklad was no stranger to giving a good spanking. Like all adults, he'd served his civic duty when his number was called. He'd taken the training course and delivered justice to a few criminals. Every few years the lottery system seemed to hit on him. Once he been called but they had no one who needed punishment. Those other times, he'd done his duty as the training had taught him. It had never turned him blue as the thought of laying his hands on Galieth was doing now. Another streak of guilty salmon rolled down Gal's body followed immediately by line of green-blue. He simply clambered across the bed until he was draped across Munklad's lap. He had to tug his hair, which only tightened further into the braided plait, over his shoulder to get it out of the way. For the moment, he held his upper body upon his elbows. "D-Do as you please," He whispered. Galieth had never been so aroused in his life. The sapphire hue displayed on Munklad's skin was the most beautiful and sexiest thing he had ever seen. He turned his head slightly to peek at his cousin's face and he could have sworn that he felt his own shaft hardening even more. The look in the taller Sepida's eyes turned Galieth's skin a lurid green-blue. "Mun, do you really want me like this?" Gal asked, his tone of voice insecure. "I never thought you were being serious…are you serious?" The smaller Sepida squirmed in place, feeling guilty. "I mean, when Setran had told me that he liked you enough to want to mate you, I backed off in case you liked him back…" "Setran?" Munklad said with a chuckle as he ran a gentle palm down Galieth's back. "That must have been a good while ago, for how long he's been utterly blue and green for Arolby." Munk frowned. "Wait. You backed off…from me? You never made any advances toward me. You never treated me as anything but your very platonic cousin." Rings of various shades of green rolled down Galieth's blue skin at Munk's touch, followed by a ring of guilty salmon. "I...I was going to, when we were barely more than juveniles...but, Setran confessed his feelings for you to me in private. He was just so honest, more honest than I could...I don't know, I just thought that maybe you would have preferred someone like him instead of me," He explained. "I always pictured you with someone amazing...with someone you deserved." Someone way better than me, he thought to himself as a thick band of sad brown rolled down his skin. "Have you ever seen me with anyone else?" Munklad asked seriously, his touch sliding lower to feel the soft roundness of Galieth's ass. Something long and hard pressed against the smaller Sepida's stomach. "Or haven't you noticed how I follow you around like a lost hatchling?" A blush formed on Galieth's cheeks when he felt what was, undoubtedly, Munk's enjoyment against him. Was that really for him? "I...I thought that was just cause we're family," Gal admitted. "I didn't think it was...I mean, how could someone like you come to like such a punk like me?" "Well, you can be a brat," Munk admitted with a light swat on the cheek he'd been fondling. He grinned when he saw the spark of blue chase across Galieth's skin. "But I see you when you aren't acting up around everyone else. I love who you are when it's just you and me and you aren't on a tear about something. You're clever, sweet, funny..." "And mean and stupid and stubborn," Galieth huffed in response. "Quick to pick on someone just to get his attention...for many, many moon cycles." Tears began to brim in the small Sepida's eyes. "I've been such an idiot all this time, Mun...I don't deserve you." "Then do better. Be someone who deserves me. I'm going to do my best to be someone who deserves you." Munklad's hand lifted and fell with a smack that seemed to echo in the room. "And if it's some kind of absolution you want for past behavior," Munk rubbed the stinging flesh of Gal's backside. "I think maybe we might both enjoy the activity." "Hanh!" Galieth covered his mouth with both hands, shocked at the sound that came out of it. Tiny specks of salmon rolled over his brightening blue hue. "M-Mun…" he gasped as he wiggled his lower half. "Please?" "You want more?" Munklad's voice dripped wickedness. His hand came down on Galieth's other cheek with a crack. "You want me to spank this ass until it's radiating warmth and you'll think of me whenever you sit tomorrow?" After an initial squeak of contact, Galieth nodded fervently. "Yes, please, Mun. Punish me," he keened even though he continued to blush hard. Before he realized it, the long braid began to unravel and form into multiple tight braids, a feeling he had never quite experienced before that day, and it was all for Munklad. "Only if you understand that I'm not truly doing this because of anything you've done before," Munk said seriously, still rubbing his hand over Gal's backside. "I'm doing it because we both want it and you feel like you need it. It's for both our pleasure and to let you forgive yourself." The petite Sepida felt his hearts skip a simultaneous beat. How had he been so blind? He had wasted so much time on Pip when Mun had been right there the entire time, beside him. He reached over to gently take one of Munklad's braids in his hand and pressed a kiss to the tip. "I understand," he whispered sincerely before a devious little smirk formed on his face. "Does this mean that I'm your precious punk of a pink Sepida from now on?" "If you want to be mine, I won't ever let you go unless you send me away," Munklad said, flipping Gal and pulling the smaller Sepida into his arms. Munk pressed their foreheads together, his hair tentacles gently caressing Galieth's cheeks. "I want you to be mine, and I want to be yours. It's all I've wanted since we hit the juvenile pools and I figured out the way you make me feel." Galieth's own hair immediately intertwined with Mun's, some of the strands holding his cousin's in place, as if the petite Sepida didn't want them to let go. "Then, won't you kiss me, Mun?" He asked softly, his slightly larger eyes filled with the desire he had buried away out of fear of not being enough. "Show me how I make you feel?" Munklad's golden eyes burned as he swept down to capture Galieth's lips. The smaller Sepida expected the kiss to be hard and forceful, but it didn't begin that way. Soft, gentle lips caressed, conveying the controlled longing in Munk's hearts. His hair stroked softly against Gal's cheeks and forehead, as though confirming that the other Sepida was really there. "Gally," Munk whispered, his voice low and almost desperate, before he deepened the kiss. Galieth's small and slender fingers latched on to two of Munk's braids on either side of his head and clenched them gently as he gave as good as he got. His skin all but exploded into various shades of sapphire, and he couldn't quite control the squirming and grinding of his lower half against Munklad. The bigger Sepida groaned, hands going to Galieth's hips to encourage the movement. "Spanking isn't the only thing I want to do to your ass," Munk purred into his cousin's delicately finned ear, nipping the lobe. Ribbons of green formed on Galieth's skin as he let loose the lustiest trilling he had ever vocalized in his life. "Munklad...celestials, do whatever you want to it. Just know that I'm but a ripple away from cumming right here against you!" "If you do," Munk warned, his tone turning stern and commanding. Gal had never heard it from his cousin before. "I'm going to spank and fuck you until you spend yourself so many times you turn permanently blue." Galieth's hair tightened within their braids in a rolling wave down his back in shock as he spilled himself then and there. "Mun!" He gasped as his body shivered and squirmed in response to the sudden release. Munklad clenched his teeth so tightly his jaw throbbed, his cock straining and so hard it was painful. He was dangerously close to following Gal over the edge. Munk held his cousin down, limiting the smaller Sepida's movement. If Galieth kept wriggling on top of Munklad's cock, Munk was going to spill as spectacularly as Gal had. "So, you like that thought?" Munk asked voice strained. His hand seemed to slide to the seam between those perfect round cheeks without his mind knowing it was going to happen. Munklad was amazed his fingers didn't shake as they slipped down to find Gal's entrance, tracing a careful circle around it. "You'll be so sore, exhausted. Stuck in bed for at least a day for me to dote on." "I'll do whatever you wish," Galieth vowed. "Just, please, please slip inside me already?" As usual, the colors displayed on his skin expressed his feelings in an irrefutable way. They swirled and burst as if they were putting on a show for Munklad alone. Munk took slow, deep breaths, fighting for the control he needed to keep from tossing Galieth down and immediately sinking inside the gorgeous Sepida deep and hard. Control, Munklad told himself, keep it together. The larger Sepida delivered a stinging smack to Galieth's backside. "Trying to skip your punishment?" Munk asked, voice rough as gravel. "You don't get this," he pushed his hips upward, grinding his rigid length against the petite man pinned in his lap. "Until I'm ready to give it to you." The smaller Sepida let out a whimper of pain immediately followed by a trill of pleasure. His body ached, starved, for such intimate contact...even for the sharp sting that accompanied discipline. Feeling the unmistakable proof of Munklad's own enjoyment against him nearly made Gal swoon. "That feels so good, the burn from your hand and your hardness against me," the words were out of Galieth without a second thought. "What should I do, Mun?" He asked. "What would make you feel good?" Even as he said that one of his long braids curled around his cousin's length and gave it a gentle stroke. "Gally," Munklad rasped, bringing his hand down harder than he'd meant to. He gently rubbed the warm flesh under his palm, knowing that if Munk's own hand stung it must have been worse for Galieth. "Eep!" the petite Sepida squeaked and squirmed, even more, when he felt the gentle rubbing that followed. That last one had been more pain than pleasure, but he couldn't help but enjoy it, even love it. "More...I want more," he pleaded. "Please." Munk's breaths were nearly as ragged as Galieth's as he struck the smaller man again and again, careful of the strength of his blows. The stinging slaps covered Gal's ass and down the backs of his thighs. Munklad thrust upward with every hit, rubbing what he could against Galieth's stomach while slim braids squeezed his length deliciously. Galieth's other braids began to caress every inch of skin they could reach: Munklad's face, neck, shoulders, chest...while other braids entangled further around Munk's own braids and began to tug. Though the taller Sepida had his lower half held firmly in place, Gal was still able to lean forward to wrap his arms around his cousin's shoulders and kiss him desperately. Munklad pulled back with a harsh breath. Galieth yelped as he was spun and flung to the bed. The smaller Sepida barely recognized his cousin's voice when Munk spoke, "I have to have you. Now." Oh, blessed be the reefs, Gal thought to himself. He squirmed in eager anticipation. "You can have me, all of me. Please, Munklad, I want you so badly," he keened. Munk's head spun as he lunged for the side-table, yanking open the drawer with such enthusiasm that it pulled out completely and dumped its contents across the floor. The Sepida swore colorfully, snatching a small vial and leaving the rest. Munklad froze, transfixed when he turned back to Galieth. The smaller Sepida had the brightest smile on his face. He couldn't even remember the last time he smiled so unabashedly. The blue that had taken over his entire skin from head to toe was tinged with swirls of green. When was the last time he was so happy? "Munklad...I'm not dreaming, am I?" He questioned aloud. Munk broke out of the daze caused by seeing Gal spread out before him. "I was just wondering the same thing," the larger Sepida said softly, drawing close to his cousin. "If we are dreaming, let's not wake up." Munklad slid in next to Galieth, shivering at the touch of Gal's soft skin. Galieth snuggled against the other Sepida, ensuring as much skin-to-skin contact between them as possible. "I'm a handful," He warned even as his braids once again wrapped around some of Munk's. "Are you sure you won't regret this? You'll be stuck with me forever. Are you sure you want to mate with me, ceremony and all?" "I was already stuck with you. You netted me a long time ago. You just didn't know it. I couldn't leave you before, so why would I want to go now that I finally have you? I'm half tempted to go kidnap three elders and drag them to the pools right now to bully them into binding us." Munk grinned, reaching down to grope Gal's perfectly rounded backside, still warm from the spanking. "And you certainly are a handful. I love it." Gal felt the guiltiest pleasure rolling through him. He was relieved that Munklad's mind seemed to be set. He was glad to hear that he was serious about being bound. The hand that took hold of his stinging butt cheek, however, made his body ache with a nearly desperate need. "We'll kidnap three elders later. So, won't you claim me, Mun? Please?" He keened in a voice that dripped with lust. Munklad urged Gal to the center of the bed. He arranged the smaller Sepida onto his hands and knees, placing Galieth carefully, just as he wanted him. Gal's knees were spread wide, his lower back arched, and his braids slithering in aroused agitation. Munk looked at him as though he'd just been hit in the forehead with a hammer. Munklad snapped into action, tearing his gaze away from the spell-binding sight of his cousin when Galieth whined and wiggled his ass. A single drop from the bottle was all Munklad needed. He transferred it from his fingertip to the line dividing those divinely rounded cheeks. "Hold yourself open for me." Galieth's hair was so long that he used the tips of a few of his braids to do it, holding his own cheeks wide without a second thought. He blushed hard, but bit his lips to not say anything that would deter Munklad. The bigger Sepida stroked Galieth's entrance, spreading the glistening gel. It warmed instantly and grew slick. Munk held his breath as he pressed, slipping a finger inside. The petite Sepida let out a trilling mewl, a sound he didn't even know he could make, as he desperately wiggled against that finger. "Please, please, please…" he begged. "Not enough for you?" Munk asked, voice tight. A second finger joined the first, plunging deep. "I need more of you," Galieth keened. "So much more." He couldn't even think properly by that point. His entire body felt sensitive and receptive. "Take me deeply. Pull my hair. Spank me. All the things!" "I like you demanding." Gal chirped in protest when the fingers left him. He forgot his complaint when strong fingers wrapped around his hips, digging in roughly. Something warm and rigid slid between his ass cheeks and teased at Galieth's slick opening. "Tell me you're mine." Munk's tip pressed in and then retreated. "No more chasing Pipolphi, his giant, or anyone else. Only mine." Galieth nearly swooned, which would have been the absolute worst, since he most definitely did not want to faint before having Munklad inside him. "Yes, I'm yours...wait, why would I chase Pipolphi's giant? He's a deplorable and disgusting beast!" He huffed. Gal yelped as Munklad's heavy hand cracked across one cheek. "Gally!" Munk bellowed. "That alien was defending Pipolphi from you. He wasn't the one behaving deplorably, and you should be ashamed of yourself for calling him disgusting. He defended someone weaker than himself, acted as a protector. It would make a Nubra proud." Munk spanked the other cheek harshly. "When did you last behave so nobly, honorably, or selflessly?" The larger Sepida dropped a series of hard slaps that left a burning sting aching from Galieth's lower back to upper thighs. Tears brimmed in the Sepida's eyes. Not from the physical punishment, as that felt quite delicious to him, but from his cousin's words. Munklad was right. Being a protector was honorable, and that was just what Pipolphi's giant was. "S-So I'm not all noble and honorable and selfless! So what?" He whimpered. "It doesn't mean I don't deserve to be loved!" He used some of his braided hair to hide his face so that Munk wouldn't see him sniffling. "...but, you're right. H-he's not disgusting. He was only protecting." "Good boy," Munk hummed, gently stroking the friction-warmed skin. "You do deserve love. And you'll get more than you know what to do with." The head of Munklad's cock found Gal's opening. He pushed in the tip and withdrew, then pushed in again. "And when you behave well; when you show honor…" Munk pressed in, rubbing his tip against Galieth's swollen prostate. "I'll reward you." Galieth gasped, his braids tightening and sweeping away from his face and down his back as his arms stretched outwards. Other parts of his body began to tighten, as well. His shaft, which was almost painfully hard by then, began to leak precum. He couldn't remember ever feeling so good. "I w-won't ever chase after anyone else ever again," he vowed. "I'm yours and only yours!" "Perfect." Munk slammed in hard, reveling in the tight heat surrounding him. "And you'll treat others with kindness and respect? Especially Pipolphi and his large friend?" A myriad of complaints formed in Gally's mind. Mun wanted him to be kind to them? However, the incredibly wonderful sensation of Munklad driving himself so thoroughly into his depths made him think twice about complaining. "A-alright…" he conceded. "Alright, I'll b-be kind to them, too." Galieth's reward was a series of rapid thrusts that made his braids tighten almost painfully. Munklad stopped, burying himself as deeply as he could, hips pressed tightly against the smaller man. Munk's hand snuck beneath them to catch Galieth's rigid length in his hand and began to stroke as Munklad swiveled his hips, rubbing deliciously against Gal's sweet spot. "Kind enough to apologize to them for your behavior in the recent and not so recent past?" Once again, Galieth's mind filled with all sorts of arguments to contradict everything that Munklad requested, or rather, demanded of him. Why should he have to do such embarrassing things? Especially for a crazy-ass couple that had humiliated him so? "Do I have to?" The petite Sepida all but mewled in complaint. "Of course not," Munklad said, letting go of Gal's cock. Munk pulled back and began thrusting shallowly, just short of Galieth's prostate each time. The larger Sepida's grip on Gal's hips kept Galieth from pushing back to get that little extra bit he needed. "It was just an idea. Something that would make me proud of you." Munk gave one hard thrust, just where Galieth needed it, before pulling back to short, teasing strokes. "P-Proud?" He questioned as he whimpered and wiggled desperately against his cousin, eager to have him return to his previous actions. "Then, I'll do it. I'll apologize…Ah!" Galieth cried as Munklad went deep again, the head of him seeming to drag with sensual thrill where it felt the best. "Only if that's what you want to do," Munklad said, a bit breathless as he began pumping faster, catching Galieth's shaft again and stroking it in time. "If that's what feels like the right thing, you know I'll support you, Gally." Though it didn't really seem like such a pleasant thing to do before, it certainly did just then. Making Munklad happy made Galieth happy, and his cousin seemed to be in a very rewarding mood whenever Gal pleased him. "I do, I promise," he vowed as his words morphed into moans. "Just please don't stop." "You want more of this? You like being beneath me as I fuck you however I want? Take my pleasure from you rough…and deep… and hard?" Munklad added a twist of his hips with every thrust and Galieth felt like his braids were going to strangle themselves as his body lit up with zings of electric pleasure that pulsed through him, building stronger and stronger. Too much. His mind wanted more, but his body couldn't quite take the onslaught of pleasure. In spite of having already released in an embarrassing way earlier, Galieth once again let go. "Eep!" he squeaked as he shot all over his cousin's bed. "I'm so sorry, Mun!" "Sorry? What for?" Munk's thrusts slowed but didn't stop. "You feel so good when you tighten around me. Slick and hot. Trying to pull my come out of me." Munklad leaned in close, hands drifting over Galieth as though savoring his smooth, sapphire skin. "Not yet, though. We're not done. How many more times do you think I can make you come before you beg me to finish, Gally?" "Why would I ever beg you to stop?" Galieth gasped. "Even if I pass out, I'd rather you continue until you can't anymore." He added. "I'm probably not making much sense right now. But, it just felt so good, Mun. I want you to feel the same." Munklad cursed at his cousin's words, and Galieth didn't think it was possible, but Mun grew harder and larger inside him. The larger Sepida growled, yanking himself from Gal and flipping the smaller man onto his back. Munklad laid his body over Galieth's pressing and grinding their crotches together. "Perfect," Munk said almost mindlessly. "Mine." Galieth looked into his cousin's golden yellow eyes, nearly an amber hue with lust and wondered if his own looked the same. Surely they must. He took in the sight of his cousin, his skin the sultriest shade of blue he had ever seen. "Please, Mun…" he whispered. "Won't you cum inside me? And all over me? And anywhere else you wish?" "I want another from you before I fill you up," Munklad said, sliding down Galieth's body, kissing and licking as he went. "That's not gonna be a problem," Galieth pointed out. "I feel I'm getting close again." He would surely feel all kinds of sore later, from all different parts of his body, but right then all that mattered were Munklad's magnificent ministrations. He squirmed and bucked beneath his touch. "M-Mun!" Munklad pinned Gal's hips to the bed, holding him still. Munk drew his tongue from Galieth's tip to the base and back up again, pushing harder to hold his lover still. "I think you should come in my mouth, Gally. I'm going to swallow you down, suck it out of you." Galieth only had time to draw in a sharp breath before Munklad was making good on his promise. Gal forgot to breathe as his cousin sucked him hard, down to the root, bobbing up again before repeating the action. Munk rubbed his tongue on the underside, forcing his hair to unbraid to reach up to tweak and pull Galieth's pert little nipples. "Hahn!" Gal keened as he was assaulted with pleasure unlike any he had felt before, not even when they were in the juvenile pools. A few of his incredibly long braids began to slam down on the bed in whipping waves of wantonness. "Mun...Mun, I can't control...gonna leak!" He cried out as he came. He was almost certain that he had released some of the aphrodisiac fluid that time, as well. A part of him felt mortified while the majority was quite excited to see what Munklad would do next. "Give it to me," Munk demanded, the sapphire of his skin darkening. "I can't get any hornier. I don't care." Galieth felt his own skin rippling to match Munk's hue. Maybe he was thinking about it the wrong way...maybe it was Galieth himself who was drowning in the side-effects of his own fluids. "To be honest," he responded with a pant as his shaft began to rise right back up. "Neither can I." Munk sucked in a breath, his skin feeling suddenly hot. The blue of his skin darkened to nearly black as he crawled up Galieth's body, the smaller Sepida's legs parting to wrap around Munklad's waist. "I don't think I can be gentle, Gally," Munk said, voice low as he buried his face in Galieth's neck to nibble and nip. "Oh, please don't be gentle," Galieth all but begged. "I'd rather you carry me everywhere for hours afterward." "Days," Munklad promised, lining himself up and thrusting deep. "Weeks." He drew out and slammed home. "I'll fuck you so thoroughly your feet may never touch the ground again." Munk began a rhythm, hard and measured, as deep as he could manage without breaking his petite lover in half. "Oh, fuck!" the smaller Sepida gasped as he clung tightly to his cousin with his arms, legs, and braids. Amidst their movements, he nuzzled against some of Munklad's braids until he was able to gently pinch one of them with his lips, giving it a gentle lick and bite. Munk growled, his pounding thrusts increasing in speed. If Galieth hadn't been clinging so tightly to him, Munklad would have driven his lover across the bed and onto the floor. "Take it," Munklad rasped. "Take all of me. I'm going to fuck you until you can never forget how I feel inside you." One of Gal's hands raked up to the back of Munklad's head as the fingers gently tugged at the roots of the braids. "Yes!" he cried out after releasing the braid in his mouth. "Burn your imprint right into- eep!" He squeaked as he suddenly came for the third, or was it fourth, time right between them. "Ahn, fuck, Gally!" Munklad took Galieth's mouth with his own, licking and sucking while he slammed deep and held himself there. The larger Sepida moaned into the kiss as his release hit him hard. With Gal's muscles clenching and rippling around him, Munk's pleasure stretched on and on until his vision began to gray at the edges. He groaned, hips twitching as he pressed his forehead to his cousin, their breathing ragged. Swirls of lavender and green ebbed outwards from the center of Galieth's chest. "We're mates now," he whispered between gasps of air. "You'll never be rid of me." "Good." Munk rolled to his back, smiling at Galieth. The smaller Sepida looked more than a bit dazed, sprawled across Munklad's chest. Munk kissed his cousin's temple before pushing a button above him that dimmed the lights. "Love you, Gally," Munklad said, closing his eyes as Galieth murmured an unintelligible response, already asleep.

    Excited to have returned home with a mate and a new friend, Pip was the first to dismount and rushed through the open hangar, burying his toes in the beach sand that began a few yards from where he had landed. The fine, white sand shimmered in the warm sunshine like a swath of crushed diamonds worn smooth by millennia of pounding surf. Pip closed his eyes and took a large breath of air, tears brimming in his eyes at the familiar feeling of being home. "Well, well, if it isn't Pipolphi ets Dejunsi of the Sepida in the Waters…" an aggravatingly familiar voice called out. Pip didn't need to open his eyes to recognize it. The voice clearly belonged to his most persistent bully, Galieth ets Amunve. The two of them were close in age and Pip had been grouped with Galieth in their school and play. More than any other Sepida, Galieth had tormented Pip while they were growing up. It went all the way back to some hatchday celebration when they'd been little. Even that long ago, Pipolphi remembered that Tilbei had been there at his side, defending him. When Pip was alone, he'd always felt open to attack, vulnerable. Pipolphi was too big, stuck out too much, never felt fast enough or clever enough. Galieth had always seemed to take joy in reinforcing his insecurities. Seeing the smaller Sepida immediately upon arrival when Pip had been so excited about coming home seemed to make the shining sun dim and to take away the sparkle from the sands. "Crawling back home again, eh?" Galieth taunted. "Space too much for you to handle? Figures." When Pip opened his eyes, he realized that Galieth was flanked by his usual accomplices. Gal's cousin Munklad, and their two friends Setrahl and Arolby. Though Galieth was the biggest threat amongst all of them, it did not ease Pip's concern to see them all before him. Galieth was absolutely lovely in the eyes of the Sepida. In fact, he was considered the most beautiful out of their entire generation. He was adorably short, a mere 3'8" (111 cm), and a vast difference to Pip's 5' (152 cm). The smaller Sepida's resting color was a light pink hue all over with slightly larger eyes that were a golden yellow. His hair tentacles reached down to his ankles, even while in the slight waves of mischief that currently sent them curling and shifting like a living cloak down the rose-colored Sepida's back. Galieth's three companions weren't as short. All three of them were between 4 and 4'2" (121-127cm), which was the range of height for nearly all Sepida. Though Munklad was Galieth's cousin, their only resemblance was in the same hue of their golden eyes. Mun was a muddy blue hue all over. Setran was a boulder-grey with blue eyes, and Arolby was a moss-green hue with lighter green eyes. Pip had a theory that Galieth had surrounded himself with friends that were naturally camouflage-hues so as to hide himself from all the Hasserack that he attracted. Gal had never been the best at shifting colors during dire situations. So, Pip had seen him hiding behind his friends on more than one occasion. Pipolphi had never said so out loud except perhaps to Tilly, saying that a Sepida couldn't hide was one of the worst insults for their kind. Even if it was true and though Galieth tormented Pip, the tall Sepida could never bring himself to say such a thing. Pipolphi had always preferred avoidance of conflict, hiding, and running. It had never worked well, but Pip had tried. The turquoise Sepida gritted his teeth and forced himself not to hunch to appear smaller. Pipolphi was tired of it, tired of hiding from everything. "Not that it's any of your business, but I met many new friends in space," Pip replied, feeling a touch more bravery after what he and his new companions had survived. Not to mention that his beloved human and his friend Louie were also on board behind him. "And together, we took down a whole Hunnar ship." "Ha! Well, talk about illusions of grandeur," Galieth mocked as he walked around the taller Sepida, circling around him like a hawk. "Who'd ever believe that such a gangly Sepida such as you would take down one Hunnar, let alone a whole ship?" He hissed as he quickly reached out to grab a handful of Pip's hair tentacles and tugged them down so sharply that taller Sepida's head bent backward. "Besides, other than that annoying Nubra, who'd become friends with someone as ugly as you?" A pleased sneer formed on Gal's face when Pip's turquoise eyes glared right at him. The pink Sepida relished whenever he managed to gain the tall Sepida's complete attention. He shoved Pip hard enough to make the taller man fall to the ground and was about to pin him down. But, the moment was short-lived when a deep voice yelling in a foreign language startled him. "Hey! Just what do you think you're doing, you little brat?" Zane called out as he rushed over to them. The three other Sepida had wide eyes on their faces, and their necks craned upwards to gape openly at the immensely tall foreigner. Galieth turned white with shock, which was quickly replaced with a pitch black of fear as he was lifted up effortlessly and held over the huge man's shoulder. {"OW! What the cosmos do you think you're do- OW! Stop this at ONCE!} He cried out as he felt a large hand coming down on his backside over and over again. It wasn't terribly painful, the shock and mortification hit him harder than the slight sting. His black hue bled quickly into an orange as he tried to decide whether the tall beast was dangerous or not. Every time that large hand swatted his butt cheeks, he flashed a mustard hue of pure embarrassment. "Little girls should behave and treat others with respect," Zane grumbled as he continued to spank the little feminine Sepida. His movements began to slow down just as loud gasps were aimed at the blue swirls that began to overtake Galieth's orange hue. The human downright blushed when he felt something quite hard poking against his shoulder. Once again, he had judged incorrectly. It wasn't a little girl that he had been disciplining...it was apparently a young man. {"I will never forget this, you big oaf! You tall troll!"} Galieth huffed as he shoved the human's hands away after he was let down. By then, he was a solid mustard hue all over, and his arousal could no longer be hidden. His hair strands moved in all directions in agitation. {"Congratulations, Pip! You've managed to find a foreign friend that's even taller and uglier than you!"} {"He's big and strong and wonderful,"} Pipolphi shouted, hands clenched in fists. His skin swirled with reds and oranges punctuated with flashes of white; he could feel the challenge display thrumming in his skin. {"And he's not ugly! He's the most amazing, beautiful thing I've ever seen! And he's like that on the inside, too. Not like you, you're so dark inside."} Pip's shoulder's slumped, but Zane was there wrapping an arm around him and the Sepida straightened. {"It's so sad. Doesn't it hurt you, Galieth? Don't you want to feel soft and warm inside?"} As the taller Sepida spoke, Galieth's mustard yellow hue began to shift from color to color. It was briefly an olive green of sly contentment when Pip began to shout back since he had managed to get a rise out of him. But, then the green turned into a yellow-orange of confusion. But, finally, his hair tentacles drooped straight down as he took on a deep brown hue of downright depression. He was dark inside? That's how Pip had thought of him all this time? Munklad rushed forward to place a hand on his cousin's shoulder. None of them had ever seen Galieth turn that sad hue before. Mun flashed a vibrant pink of concern when tears began to fall from the shorter Sepida's golden yellow eyes. {"Muuuuuuuuuuun,"} Gal whimpered as he buried his weeping face in his cousin's chest. {"Am I really that dark inside? A-all I wanted was for him to-"} A sniffle so loud that it sounded like the sound of a French horn followed. {"To like me. B-but all he cares about is that stupid N-nubra and th-this mean, un-cultured g-giant!"} Though he spouted petulant and childish jabs, the solid brown hue was the truth of how upset the tiny Sepida truly was. Pip was right. Galieth was definitely hurt. "Is he going to be alright?" Zane whispered. "I didn't think I hit him so hard for him to cry like that…" "Didn't hurt him," Pipolphi whispered back. "Not sure what is his major malfunction." Pip sighed and stepped cautiously toward the upset Sepida. {"Tilly isn't stupid, and Zay isn't uncultured. If you really wanted me to like you, you wouldn't say things like that. I don't know what game you're playing now. What are you really sad about? It definitely can't be because I don't like you. You've never had a kind word for me. You hurt me, play mean pranks, and say terrible things. You've always made it perfectly clear how you feel about me, and it's pretty far from anything friendly."} {"You know what,"} Galieth retorted with a sniffle. {"Fine! Believe what you want! I DON'T like you, and I n-never did! Go be happy with your unruly Giant and uncouth Nubra, see if I care!"} The tiny Sepida then ran off dramatically. The brown hue had never wavered. {"Gal, wait!"} Munklad cried out as he chased after him. Their other two friends reluctantly followed. "What was that all about?" Zane wondered aloud. "No idea," Pip said, looking bewildered. "We grew up together. Galieth always mean because I'm too tall, blue like I'm happy-horny all the time, clumsy. Never nice." Zane frowned. "I'm starting to think he deserved that spanking," he grumbled. He then glanced towards the ship. "Should we bring Louie with us to meet your parents, or should we leave him on the ship?" "Leave, Louie?" Pipolphi asked, shocked. "I want Louie to meet the parents. Ahn, unless Louie doesn't want to come?" "No, I just remember how he scared you the first time…" Zane pointed out. "Would he be scary to your parents?" "Mnn, yes. But can't leave him. No one gets left behind or forgotten. Can talk to parents first, warn." "Alright, if you're sure," Zane agreed. He then whistled for Louie to join them. The two of them looked on, Pip in confusion and Zane in horror, as Louie tried to drag a recently-soiled large Mr. Teddy with him. "Oh no, you don't...it's one thing to introduce you to the in-laws. It's a different thing entirely to have them see you fornicating with a bear. Mr. Teddy stays in here," Zane stated adamantly. Louie's ears and tail dropped, but he dropped the teddy bear and padded over to them. The canine sighed as the ship's hatch closed, bumping Mr. Teddy the rest of the way inside. The Irish Setter perked up when Pip hugged him. The dog walked next to Pipolphi as they ventured across the sand toward a group of shining domes in the distance. Louie liked having Salty Pup between himself and Zane. The waves and beach reminded Louie of home, but it was still a New Place and should be treated cautiously in case any bad things might be about. Later, Louie would try to patrol for Men with Hats and Beards to assure himself there were no obvious threats about. As they walked, Pip explained in his best English who they would be meeting and why Louie and Zane would have to wait outside for a few minutes when they got there. The Sepida felt himself turn a guilty salmon color as he told Louie that his people would probably be afraid of such a big-toothed predator, remembering Pip's own awful initial reactions to the sweet dog. "Don't worry, he won't hurt them. He'll be a good boy, right Louie?" Zane reached down to pat Louie's side. "No biting, ok?" Louie turned to give Zane's hand a few licks. No biting. Got it. No one had forbid licking, however. Louie's tongue lolled in a doggy grin, looking forward to it. As they approached the domes, more Sepida and Nubra were about. Most Sepida looked at Zane and Louie with wide, startled eyes before darting away or disappearing with camouflage. The Nubra they came across watched warily, sometimes stepping in front of the Sepida near them and glaring at the strangers. Pip sighed and kept walking, trying to convince his coloring to reflect calm. He thought he did alright until they reached Pip's childhood home. Nervousness prickled through Pipolphi sending flickers of orange across his skin. When the Sepida neared a familiar dome, his feet seemed to lead him toward it without direction from him. Similarly, his hand lifted and stroked down the door to set off the chime within. A moment later, a huffy and recognizable Nubra was at the door. At first, Zane wondered why Tilbei's face seemed upset. But, then he caught sight of not one, not two, but three penises in different stages of emergence. "Ahh! I can't unsee that!" the human whined as he covered his eyes with his hands. "I get it, already! Tilly's like 110% male!" Tilbei raised an eyebrow at the tall human's antics, unsure of what was wrong with him. {"Sorry...Jas and I were...hold on, give me a sec,"} he relayed to Pip before rushing back inside to make sure that his beloved half-Polkin was dressed. Tilly himself didn't really care about such things as nudity or others seeing his arousal. But he cared enough about Jasper to want to honor his wishes. When he opened the door a second time, his privates were once again concealed, not that Zane ever looked down at them again after what he had seen. He was still a little flushed with embarrassment, but Tilly didn't seem to be bothered in the slightest. As they walked in, neither Jasper nor Tilbei gave any reaction to Louie and Zane, since they had already been acquainted with them both. {"Everything okay?"} Tilbei asked after setting two bowl-like glasses of water out for Zane and Louie to drink. Zane immediately set Louie's bowl on the ground for the canine to reach. A quick scan at the dietary machine showed that both species were a bit dehydrated and could safely drink their water. {"We're on our way to see my parents,"} Pipolphi explained. {"Had a run-in with Galieth and his goons. I think he's maybe lost his mind."} Pip grinned. {"But Zay saw Gal pushing me around and, you wouldn't believe it, Tilly, he spanked Galieth."} The Sepida leaned in, guilty delight flashing in sparks white, lime, and salmon pink. {"And Galieth turned blue. Very, very blue."} {"Blue? That had to be super embarrassing for that little punk,"} Tilbei responded with a snicker. He placed a hand on Zane's shoulder. {"Well done, man!"} Zane didn't know what Tilly was trying to say, but the Nubra seemed pleased. "Tilly said 'job well done' with Galieth," Pip translated. The Sepida blew out a breath. {"We have to get him a chip and mine updated to his language. I hate not being able to communicate."} He looked down at Louie, who was dripping water from his muzzle. {"And I speak none of poor Louie's."} Pipolphi looked thoughtful. {"Isn't there still that place near the Interworld Embassy that takes trade, Tilly? I don't have nearly enough credits to buy two chips and upgrades, but if I could trade…"} Jasper stepped into the room, cheeks flushed and hair tousled. {"Oh, hi-hi.} He smiled and gave a little wave before tucking himself into his Nubra's side. He blinked down at Louie. {"Why is our Kaynen friend drinking off the floor?"} Louie's head lifted straight up at the sound of Jasper's voice. He walked over to the hybrid and leaned slightly against Jasper's leg as if to beg for scratchies. Tilly lifted a brow at the sight. {"Well, the place near the Interworld Embassy is still there. Are you sure you wanna go that far as to trade...that?"} He questioned as he subconsciously held Jasper closer to him and began to stroke his side. The rabbit hybrid didn't seem to be able to keep himself from reaching down to run his fingertips through the silky fur behind Louie's ears. Jas petted the canine as Tilly frowned at Louie before looking back to Pip. {"It's fine,"} the Sepida said, though he looked a bit uncertain. {"Zay will go with me, I'm sure. He'll make sure no one takes undue liberties with my person."} Zane peered at his beloved Sepida at the sound of his name, but he still couldn't make out a lick of what anyone was saying. He knew he was involved though since his name had been called. No punches were thrown, so it probably wasn't any bad news, in any case. {"Oh, is that the real reason?"} Tilbei questioned as he motioned towards Pip's curling tresses. {"Or is it that you want him there to watch?"} Pipolphi squeaked and flashed bright blue then an embarrassed mustard and back again. {"I, well…So, we came by to ask if you'd join us to meet my parents."} Pip said quickly, not caring how obvious the subject change might be. {"I thought they might be calmer with a Nubra there. And they can meet Jasper at the same time."} Tilly nuzzled the top of Jasper's head. {"What do you think, Jas? Should we go with them to give them some support?"} He asked. {"Oh, sure,"} Jas agreed easily. He looked down to where Louie was nearly falling over with happiness from Jasper rubbing under his chin. {"And why am I feeling like I really need to tell Louie he's a good boy like I am talking to a little kit?"} Louie let out a pleased gruff as he licked Jasper's fingers. Almost immediately, Tilbei lifted Jasper into his arms bridal style. {"Pip, your Kaynen friend is being too forward with my mate."} He huffed. {"Ah, I'm sorry, Tilly!"} The Sepida said quickly. {"I really don't think he means anything by it. Louie licks me all the time. At first, I thought he was tasting me to see if I was good to eat. Now, I think it's how he shows affection. He licks Zay, too. He seems to like hands the best. He's never tried to do it anywhere naughty."} {"It's probably just a cultural difference with Kaynen, Bei. I don't think Louie was getting fresh."} Jasper hugged the Nubra, kicking his feet slowly as he looked down at Louie, who looked utterly dejected. {"Aww, look how sad he is. Don't be sad, Louie. Who's a nice Kaynen? Who is? Yes, you are! Louie's a good Kaynen. You just can't hold your licker. No, you can't, can you?"} Louie briefly turned around in place in excitement as if he knew that he was being called a "good boy." Tilbei downright pouted. {"I would still prefer to be the only one allowed to lick you, love,"} he all but whined. Jasper grinned and nuzzled up to his mate's ear, whispering softly, {"I can think of a few places I'd like you to lick me. Maybe you'd give me a turn to lick you, too?"} The half-Polkin's soft tongue darted out to tease a spot just behind Tilbei's jaw. Tilly felt a shiver rolling down his spine at the prospect. {"Definitely, as soon as we get back,"} he vowed. {"So, are we doing this? Do you wanna stop by my mom's first for practice? She's been wanting to see you, too. She already met my Jasper."} {"I want to,"} Pip said with a sigh. {"But if they found out I went to see them second I'd never hear the end of it. Maybe after?"} The Sepida made a rude noise. {"I might need her hugs if they give me one of their prepared speeches about what I should be doing with my life and bend my knees so I don't look so damn tall or I'll never find a mate."} Pipolphi's shoulder sagged. Zane immediately placed a hand on his shoulder. "Everything okay?" he asked, concerned. Louie also walked over to lick the Sepida's knee. "Yes," Pip said, leaning into the touch and patting the top of Louie's head as he forced a smile onto his face. "Time to hit the road. Jasper and Tilly are coming, too." They made quite the stunning group as they walked over to the dome that belonged to Pip's parents. However, with the addition of Tilbei, the other Sepida and Nubra around merely stared in curiosity as they walked past instead of trying to flee or fight. The walk was too short for Pip. He found himself wanting to wander around a bit before having to see his parents. It wasn't that he didn't love them or they didn't love Pipolphi. Pip had been the only surviving hatchling of any clutch his mother had ever laid. Their devotion to their child was absolute and often overwhelming. They were determined for Pipolphi to live the life they believed he should have and knew with utter certainty what their boy needed to do in order to achieve it. It was exhausting for Pip. He let out a deep sigh as he opened the door of his childhood home, nodding at his companions to let them know that they could wait for a few minutes in the tiled entry while Pipolphi talked to his parents and prepared them to meet Zane and Louie without them inking in fright. {"Mom? Dad?"} Pip called as he walked further inside. {"Are you home?"} Almost immediately, an aquamarine blur latched herself onto the taller Sepida. {"Come down here and let me see you,"} Xihiet, Pip's mom, trilled as she dragged his face down with her hands to inspect him with her vibrant blue eyes. Hues of lavender and green rolled down her petite form. {"Are you ok? No broken bones?"} She questioned as she began to inspect every strand of hair on his head. {"Son! Do you have any idea how worried we were when we heard no further messages from your ship?"} Palosau, Pip's father, stated sharply as he emerged, though his purple body was rapidly bleeding into a pink of concern. His teal eyes, such a similar shade to Pip's own, were tight and filled with authority. He reached over to tug Pip's head onto his shoulder as he wrapped his other arm around his body. {"Thank goodness you're safe."} {"I'm seriously contemplating never letting him go off-planet ever again!"} His mom huffed. {"Tilbei was with him and yet, still, these things happen. I just don't like it."} {"I'm fine, everything's fine,"} Pip promised. {"We ran into a little trouble but we figured everything out, and it all worked out. I'm not a hatchling anymore. I love you, but I can't just hide in the juvenile pools surrounded by Nubra."} Xi's lips drew into a thin line, but she held back from voicing all of her thoughts. {"You're safe, and you're here, and that's what matters,"} She decided. {"Agreed."} Palos gruffly responded. {"Ahmm, yes. And I made some new friends while I was gone. They're just…they're wonderful. Louie and Zay."} Pip gulped, his gills flaring slightly, willing his chromatophores to behave. {"Zay is…special to me. He's taken care of me, protected me. Louie, too. But Zay…he's strong, smart, gentle, protective, patient… "} Pip trailed off with a soft, dreamy trill. {"Protective?"} Pip's mom squealed. {"Is he a Nubra? Why haven't you introduced him to us before?"} Palos gave a small grunt of approval. {"Yes, in lieu of a Sepida, a Nubra would be an equally as acceptable mate."} {"Hnn, well, he's not exactly a Nubra. Neither is Louie."} Pip nibbled his lip nervously. {"Though they share some of the best characteristics of a protecting Nubra. They're very strong and are fierce in their defense of others."} Pipolphi fought down a bubbling giggle as he thought of his human spanking Galieth blue. The two older Sepida glanced at each other. If it wasn't a Sepida or a Nubra, just who had their son brought to them? Surely, it couldn't be a Hunnar!? {"Sweetheart, just who have you brought home with you?"} Xi questioned hesitantly. {"Wonderful people!"} Pipolphi said, a bit too enthusiastically, startling both his parents. Pip tried not to fidget as he softened his tone. {"I didn't know what Louie was, at first. Tilly said he's a Kaynen, but I don't really know anything about the species."} Pip's mother and father both frowned but the younger Sepida forged on. {"Louie is maybe just a little scary when you first see him. He looks like a predator, but I promise he is very gentle and sweet. He won't hurt you or me. He seems to have a cultural habit of, umm, licking hands and faces as sort of a greeting or something. So, don't let that startle you. He's not trying to eat you, I promise."} Pip sighed. {"I can't wait until Zay and Louie have language chips so we can communicate better."} {"Language chips? If they can't understand you, how can you know that they don't feel abducted?"} His father questioned, finally realizing that his son brought foreigners with him. {"Are they even aware of where they are?"} {"Are they foreigners?"} His mother asked, echoing her partner's thoughts. {"Well, I may have possibly accidentally ended up on Zay's planet, Earth, after a little oopsie. He's something called a human,"} Pip said quickly. {"He had an extensive audio-visual library I was able to have the ship analyze to upload into my chip. It's not a comprehensive translation. But it was enough to allow communication. They chose to come with me. They wanted to."} His parents didn't look all that convinced, but Pip thought up a different tactic. {"Tilly came across his mate while on a Hunnar ship, and they escaped together!"} Pipolphi quickly summarized. {"I'll introduce Jasper first, and with Tilly here, you'll see there's no reason to be afraid!"} He then stepped out of the room and came back with Tilbei and Jasper in tow. Tilbei kept an arm around Jasper's waist and stopped a few feet in front of Pip's parents before giving a nod of greeting. {"Good to see you again,"} the Nubra greeted. {"This is my mate, Jasper."} {"N-Nice to meet you, Pip's parents,"} Jasper all but squeaked as he hugged Tilly closer as if to hide against him somehow. Both Xihiet and Palosau seemed to melt just a little at the sight. {"It's a pleasure to meet you as well. Jasper, was it?"} Palos responded. When the half-Polkin gave a hesitant nod, Xi smiled. {"We don't know the circumstances behind how you've arrived. But welcome to our planet. Tilbei's the finest Nubra of his generation, so he's a keeper,"} she praised. Hearing such praise made Tilbei's orange spots glow in embarrassment. Seeing his parents handling Jasper so well gave Pip a bubbling hope. {"Ok, with Tilly here, I think it's time to bring in Louie!'} He announced as he did just that. Then, Louie barked a greeting and walked forward to sniff and lick at their feet. Pip's parents took a step back at the sight of the supposed Kaynen. {"Is he a carnivore?"} Palos asked warily as he stood in front of Xihiet as if to protect her. Pip reached down to absently stroke the top of Louie's head. {"No! I mean, yes, but he eats special food in small quantities…"} He tried to explain. {"Louie's a small warrior,"} Tilbei added. {"He's a good guy, believe us."} Pip's parents glanced at one another again. They were still tense at the sight of Louie, but they also trusted Tilly to protect them. Pipolphi straightened back up, his fingers curling and uncurling as he wrung his hands in nervousness. {"Mom, dad, I think it's time you finally meet my Zay,"} He decided. "Zay can come in now," he called out in English. "It's showtime!" The tall human made slow movements as he walked in. But, the fact that he had to duck at the entrance until he was able to stand upright at the higher points of the ceiling made him all too intimidating. Bands of black and pink rolled down the bodies of both of Pip's parents. All of their colors then seemed to be chased away like a drop of dish soap dispersing colors in a bowl full of milk. The two of them stood there, white as snow from head to toe, staring up at the tall man in pure shock. The gymnast made as if to move in order to shake their hands, but he changed his mind. He didn't want to scare them. "Nice to meet you?" He greeted, instead. Pip rushed about until he got cushions for everyone. Zane noted that they almost felt like large bean-bag chairs. He didn't hesitate to sit down when his lover shoved him down onto one and then sat on his lap, taking hold of his hand. Feeling just how tense his Sepida was, the human frowned slightly and began to gently rub Pip's back with his free hand. {"I love, Zay,"} Pip blurted, clinging to his human's hand. {"When he has a chip, and we can communicate more fluently, I'm going to explain my feelings fully and ask him to bond with me as my mate. Permanently."} He fiddled with Zane's fingers nervously, then wrapped his arms around the gymnast's toned forearm. {"I'm not sure how we'll do the bonding ceremony without him drowning, but we'll figure it out. I want to be with him, forever."} Both of Pip's parents sat down in one of the plush chairs as they shifted from white to a sickly grey tinged with the occasional pink. Their gazes had not left the very tall alien whom their son was currently sitting on. The flesh was a strange peachy-pink hue all over. He had what looked like light patches of fur on his arms and legs. The hair on top of his head looked dull and dead. But, it was those slate-hued eyes that were the strangest. So much smaller than theirs, and with a tiny dot of black in each similar, if much smaller, than the eyes of other beings they had seen. A long moment of silence stretched so awkwardly that it made everyone in the room feel stiff, even Tilbei and his mate. Palosau and Xihiet jumped when the sudden sound of Zane clearing his throat startled them. "I know that you can't understand me right now," the human explained. "But, I am in love with your son. I would like nothing more than to have your permission to court him to my best ability. I will do my best to perform anything that you ask of me for your culture's version of our union." Pip's hair tried to braid itself at Zane's declaration. The Sepida was able to keep his hair tentacles from knotting up in a display that would be simply mortifying in front of his parents. It would be like humping Zane while they watched. Ick. {"Zay said that…that he loves me and he wants your blessing to begin the steps of bonding with me."} Pipolphi's skin rippled with vivid greens from the deep, true emerald of grass to the palest lime. A change came over both parents at the sight of Pip turning all shades of green. They bled to a lavender hue of relief. Their son was always cheerful and sweet despite the fact that he struggled with a height that was far out of the norm in Sepida society. But, even though he had a positive disposition, it was quite rare to see him genuinely green with joy. It made their multiple hearts ache. {"Oh, sweetheart...if he really makes you happy, we won't stand in your way,"} Xihiet immediately cooed, urging Palos with a nudge to agree. Palos took a deep breath, a slight frown still on his face. {"If what you've said is true, about him being a protector, and if he really is willing….then, we'll let it be your choice on whether you truly wish to bond to him or not."} {"Thank you!"} Pip said, wiggling with happiness. He trilled and chirped in delight as he turned in his lover's hold. "They say yes! We can go steady! Make out under the bleachers and go to the drive-in!" Zane felt like laughing and crying all at once. "I'm so relieved," he replied. "I'm glad they approve."

    Their steps were quick as Tilbei and Jasper strode through the throng outside the docking section holding the Hunnar ship. The very friendly Khassli greeter from the entrance had directed them there after Tilbei had inquired if the station worker had noticed a Sepida of slightly taller than normal height recently. The Khassli had sent them off with a gentle pat to the hat on Jasper's head that kept his ears held down in a way that wasn't too uncomfortable. The hybrid's lush tail was mostly hidden beneath the chocolate-brown skirt-like wrap he wore that hung to his ankles with a length of fabric that stretched from his waist, across his chest, to drape over his shoulder and down his back. Jasper had been held by the Hunnars for months. He had no desire to be recognized. "Bei," Jasper said quietly, nodding at the sign above a docking hall that flashed the symbol matching the one on the card Jas held, kindly provided by the nice Khassli greeter. The Hunnar ship was instantly recognizable. However, the trio of men that were huddled near the entrance of the ship were not. One was a raccoon, the other was a ferret, and the third a Kaynen. Were those explosives in their hands? Tilly took hold of Jasper's hand and rushed over to the three men. "Please tell me you're not planning on blowing that ship up," he insisted. "There are innocent people in there, including my best friend!" The shortest of the bunch, a Kaynen Chihuahua, turned to address them. "Claro que no," he huffed. "Of course not. We're gonna help get some people out first and then blow it up." "One of our friends was just captured, as well," the raccoon man informed. "We'll get them all out," He insisted as he glanced at the two newcomers. He then motioned towards himself. "My name's Jason. This is my partner in crime, Pedro and my partner in life, Daniel." "I'm Tilbei, and this is my lifemate, Jasper," Tilbei responded, making the hybrid feel all warm and fluttery in his chest. "And my friend Pip's somewhere in there." Tilly's words squashed the nice feeling as fear for Tilbei's friend made Jas shiver. The entire group ducked down when they heard the sound of two Hunnar grumbling. :: "Can't believe that skinny little thing managed to land such a sharp punch," one of them hissed. "Don't worry, we'll sell him off to the highest bidder. And, if that doesn't work, someone's bound to buy that fluffy Vulpan tail." The other one responded. The first one made an aggravated noise. "Our funds are low all thanks to that damn Viceroy and his exotic tastes. I can't believe his puddle jumper was stolen under our own noses." "Yeah, but if we didn't compensate him, he'd have spread the word about the escaped goods. Can't have our other wares thinking they can also escape." :: "They call their captives wares and goods?" Daniel whispered. "Assholes!" "You don't know the half of it," Jasper whispered back as he suppressed a shudder. "What do you mean?" Jason asked when the Hunnars once again moved out of earshot. "We were both captured by them at one point," Tilbei explained. "We're the ones that escaped, as a matter of fact. On the Viceroy's puddle jumper," he added with a smirk. "I'm really starting to like you guys," Daniel commended. "Wait. Then, you'd know your way around in there, no?" Pedro prompted. When Tilly and Jasper nodded, he grinned. "Muchachos, I think we should all team up." "I was, umm. The Hunnars h-had me for a while. I can show which way to go," Jasper said, forcing himself to speak, wanting to help. His gaze dropped to the floor when the strangers' eyes converged on him. "I know where the holding cells are and a little bit of the rest of the ship from when they'd take me out to… to do things," he finished in a whisper. "Those bastards," Jason hissed. "Don't worry, we'll make sure to protect you." "Yeah, don't worry. We've gotten out of worse situations before," Daniel added. "And if anything happens, we have friends in high places. Even Enforcers," Pedro affirmed. "I'll be right here next to you the whole time," Tilly vowed as he gave their joined hands a squeeze. Jasper's smile was brilliant as he looked at Tilbei and then the others. His posture straightened, no longer hunching as though trying to make himself small, to hide. He nodded eagerly. The half-Polkin's ears lifted, toppling his hat to the floor. He bent down to grab it as he heard a series of beeps in varying tones followed by the sound of an airlock opening and closing. When he peeked back to where the Hunnars had been grumbling at the ship's entrance, they were gone. The hybrid bounced a little, noticing the keypad set into the metal next to the Hunnar ship's airlock. It looked like a model that his mother had replaced on her ship and had allowed him to play with. The buttons had been made without numbers or letters to allow them to be used across species and cultures. The buttons were color-coded, but his mother had also explained how there was a different note to the beep of each button, allowing it to be used by species who saw a shorter range of colors. Jasper's mother had eventually attached the old keypad to a simple wood box. Inside, his Polkin mother would place a treat or prize. The code would be a section of the melody from his music lessons. Jasper had practiced studiously and learned how to read music, so at the end of each week when his mother would set the box in his lap and tell him which stanza of notes comprised the code, he would have the tones ready in his head. The hybrid would quickly hum through the song until he came to the notes of the code and rapidly punch them in. Jas never wanted to wait to go and look at the music sheets. As a result, he never missed a chance to open the treasure box, and Jasper was rather good at playing the handful of instruments his parents had owned. Over the years he'd learned to play the flute, two stringed instruments, short chimes, long chimes, and the yulim. It had made his mother nearly pop with pride. "I think I can get us inside," Jasper responded excitedly as he turned to his companions, his upright rabbit ears twitching. :: Not too long afterward, the five men were safely inside the Hunnar ship. As they rounded one corner to the next, they started to realize something strange. Gates that Jas recognized as leading to the prisoner quarters had screens that flickered with static. Every now and then they had to clamber over knocked out Hunnar on the ground, some with vicious injuries. "What the hell went down here?" Daniel wondered aloud, echoing all their thoughts. "Are those...bite marks on this Hunnar's tail?" Tilbei questioned. "Does it really matter at this point? We can head into the prisoner quarters now," Jason pointed out. As if recalling their important tasks at hand, the five men rushed forward, checking one door to the next. "Vasio…" Pedro whispered. "This entire hallway is empty!" Tilbei's mauve eyes followed the trail of beaten Hunnars. "Then we should see how far these bodies go!" he suggested as, once again, the group rushed onwards. :::: Not too far from the other group, Zane and Pip busily freed the prisoners one door at a time. Though the human didn't really know all the details as to why they were breaking into a Hunnar ship and freeing all kinds of aliens along the way, he didn't question it and just attacked anyone in their way. The Hunnars were surprisingly easy to take down between him and Louie. As soon as they realized he was a good fighter, they tried to run away. Louie was too fast for them, and Zane's long strides helped him easily catch up. "One left in this hall, and then I think that's all of them!" Pip instructed, not realizing that he hadn't spoken English and Zane had no idea what he'd said. Zane seemed to get the idea, however. The little Sepida hadn't remembered to speak English since they'd come onto the ship. Pipolphi's emotions were running so high he hadn't noticed that Zane was simply reading Pip's body language and coloring while going along with whatever the Sepida had been doing. Zane trusted his lover utterly and, after seeing how competent Pip had been with mixing up the vaccinations, the human had no issue with letting Pip do whatever the Sepida thought needed to be done. He probably would have been slightly less sanguine about Pipolphi tapping frantically at every video screen they came across if he'd known that the Sepida had no idea what the screens said and was hitting random buttons and icons in a mad attempt to find anything that might help him find Tilly. As they opened the last door, they were relieved that no Hunnars were inside, but there was an instant sense of despair when Pipolphi realized that Tilly wasn't present, either. The slender tentacles on Pipolphi's head waved in his distress as the Sepida's skin flickered in shades of black and gray. Inside was a Vulpan not much taller than Pip. The captive took one good look at the Sepida and promptly let out a girlish shriek. "I don't want to be raped by tentacles!" Sifta glanced from one person to the other before he noticed the canine. "A Kaynen!" He gasped as he fell to his knees in front of the dog. The small bruise on Sifta's cheek standing out against skin gone ashen with anxiety. "Please hear me out! My mate's a Kaynen just like you… I have to get back to him. He'll get so upset if he can't find me. I mean, I got lost once when he took me to the Ferinsk Exhibit of Solaris Equin. I was just going to the restroom real quick and got turned around. He was banned for life after punching through a wall when he could smell me on the other side." Sifta groaned. "And I was fine. What will he do when I've really been kidnapped?" Louie gave a soft bark and licked Sifta's face. The Vulpan blinked at the canine. That was awfully forward for a Kaynen he'd just met. Usually, only close friends kissed cheeks. Sifta let out a shuddering breath. Clearly, the Kaynen was trying to calm him, the Vulpan thought, to show that he could be trusted as one would trust a dear friend. Thank goodness for people who were so clever that they could convey so much with a simple gesture. Sifta started to feel better immediately. "We're not going to do anything badto you," Pipolphi clarified, reaching down to pull the Vulpan to his feet. "We're looking for my best friend. Have you seen him? He's a Nubra that's inky black with orange spots." It took a good moment for the Vulpan to completely calm back down enough to grasp what was happening and that he was, indeed, not going to be molested. "I-I was the last person they brought in. I haven't seen anyone like that. Please, would you help me get back to my mate?" Sifta begged. "Before he breaks the whole station?" "Of course!" Pip assured, taking Sifta's hand and beginning to lead him out of the cell. "We let everyone else go. You are the last one. I'll have to keep looking through the ship to find my friend, he has to be here somewhere, but I'll make sure you get out safely. Zay and Louie took care of all the Hunnars that are between here and the exit." Before they could step into the hall, there was a thunder of footsteps, and the doorway was full of rough-looking men rushing inside. Zane stepped in front of Pip and Sifta, ready to defend them. Louie sat on the floor and cocked his head curiously to the side. "There will be no tentacle-raping today!" One of the men hissed. "Unhand that Vulpan!" Behind the strange men, Pip saw Tilbei enter the room cautiously with another stranger. "Tilly!" Pip shouted. "Daniel! Pedro! Jason!" Sifta said happily. "Pip!?" Tilbei gasped. "Tilly?" Zane said, looking around for Pip's friend. There was a lavender-skinned person with rabbit ears and a long wrap skirt. That must be her. Zane didn't see breasts, but from previous experience on the station, he knew breasts weren't necessarily a requirement in women of other species. Zane nodded at the rabbit-eared person. "Nice to meet you, Tilly." Jasper blinked at the giant of a man who was speaking a language his chip didn't know. "Umm, Bei?" "He's not Tilly! I am!" The Nubra huffed as he pulled Pip into a relieved hug. The two of them were practically cemented together at that point. "Tilly, thank the cosmos!" Pip keener as he clung to his best friend. "Sorry I took so long. I crashed and was hurt, and Zay saved me and...Zay!" Zane walked over to take the hand that Pip offered him. "Zay, this is Tilly," he explained in English as he motioned towards the Nubra. He then gestured to Jasper. "And this is his…" "Jasper," Tilbei responded, immediately wrapping an arm around the hybrid's waist. "My lifemate." Pip let out a happy squeal and hugged the half-Polkin tightly. "Zay, this is Jasper, Tilly's umm...Tilly's husband!" The human couldn't be more confused. "Wait, so Tilly's not a girl?" The Sepida let out a noise that sounded suspiciously like a snicker. "No, Tilly has twig and berries!" He replied. "He does? Where?" He questioned, not seeing anything even when briefly glancing at the Nubra's crotch area where Tilbei's penises were sheathed and hidden from view inside his body. "I'm so confused right now." Pip shook his head and once again spoke in Sepida. "This is Zay, he's my lifemate, though he doesn't fully understand what that means yet...and this is Louie. Don't be afraid! He's a good carnivore. A great friend! Right, Louie?" Louie let out a woof as though in agreement. "We better get you back before Lox tears the whole port apart," Pedro insisted. "Jason, Daniel, can you guys wrap things up without us?" A feral grin formed on Daniel's face. "Oh, we got this," the ferret responded as he pulled out the explosives. "Are those explosives!?" Pipolphi gasped. "No time to explain!" Tilly admitted. "We better all get out of here now!" Everyone agreed and bolted for the door. Louie let out an excited bark and loped at Pipolphi's side, almost hoping he'd get a chance to bite another of the hairy-people who had scared Little Salty Pup. As far as the Irish Setter was concerned, frightening Pip was absolutely not allowed. Louie always tried hard to be a Good Dog. However, exceptions had to be made for certain situations. Besides, Salty Pup had cooed and hugged him after Louie had chomped the first bad guy and Zane had praised him. Louie was still a Good Dog. "But, isn't blowing up the ship with the unconscious Hunnars still in it wrong?" Pipolphi questioned even as they rushed down the hallways. He hated Hunnars as much as the next Sepida. But he couldn't stand to just watch them all being wiped out. "Naw, the blast is only going to be for their controls and to total the ship," Pedro pointed out. "It'll be contained. Those rats ain't going anywhere before the Enforcers get to them." "Will the Enforcers really capture them?" Jasper asked tremulously. Even ship-less Hunnars were dangerous. "They're already on their way," Pedro affirmed. "Like I said, we have friends in high places." Two of the Hunnars that had first been attacked began to stir near the exit. However, Zane and Tilbei made short work of them, ensuring that they stayed knocked out. The human was quite impressed with how agile the Nubra seemed to be. His previous image of a female Tilly, tiny and more petite than even Pip, was quickly being rearranged to the real Tilly before him. The ebony and orange-skinned man wasn't nearly as tall as Zane. However, Tilbei couldn't be called petite either. There were muscles under that dark skin, and he used them well in a fight. When they finally made it out of the hangar, they saw Jason and Daniel rushing along behind them. They were stuck in the hallway when the explosives detonated, so Jason quickly pinned and shielded Daniel against the wall as the entire ship shook with the force. The group on the dock merely gaped as the entire control area of the ship was blasted away in a flash of light and debris. Jason and Daniel stumbled out of the hangar on unsteady feet just as several armed Murisians arrived on the scene. "They're all in there," Jason pointed out. "We had to fight for our lives!" A small sense of justice filled Jasper as he saw Hunnar after Hunnar being escorted out as prisoners flanked by four Enforcers each. Tilbei held him tightly as if to assure him that he wasn't alone. Not anymore. "Man, do you guys ever miss the days when we were just simple outlaws?" Daniel griped. "I mean look at us, doing all kinds of undercover Enforcer work…" Jason and Pedro looked at one another and shook their heads. "No, better to be on the side of the Enforcers than against them," Jason decided. "I still have many mouths to feed, amigo," Pedro pointed out. "We're staying clean." "You alright there, Sifta? Ready to go back?" Daniel asked the Vulpan. "Hey wait, we haven't properly thanked you for everything," Tilbei called out to the other group. "No need, we were a good team," Pedro pointed out. "We have another stop on the way back home, so we're kinda pressed for time." "Then, take this," Tilly offered as he handed them a card with the code for the Viceroy's ship. It had been tucked inside Jasper's hat, just in case they'd needed to give an escaping Pip or the authorities the contact information in a hurry. "We'd like to hear from you again." Jason couldn't help but smile. The raccoon reached into one of his pockets and handed Tilbei a card with the code for their ship, as well. "Same goes for us." The two groups then wished each other well and good-bye. Zane, still unsure as to what was going on, merely shook everyone's hand. A moment later, his arms were full of Sepida again. "Zay, we're going home," he told him in English. "My home and Tilly's home." He then told Tilly and Jasper the same thing. "We'll meet you there, then," Tilbei affirmed. They separated once again to get into their individual ships. Once back on Pip's ship, the Sepida gasped. "Zay!" He had completely forgotten to even warn him. "Zay taking tea with the in-laws! Meet the parents!" Louie leaned against Zane's leg as the human got a funny look on his face. The canine just hoped that wherever they were going had good treats and people who liked dogs.

    Louie hadn't taken well to space travel, at first. Zane had cleaned up several messes, which Louie looked extremely embarrassed about, before the canine had adjusted to zipping through the dark. "One jump before, but that was insane. Driving like a bat outta hell," Pipolphi had told Zane, who was sitting on the floor with Louie overflowing his lap. "Three jumps safer." Pip checked their trajectory and the jump plans. Everything was set on the computer. Pip pushed back from the console and stood. "Need to get the thing," the Sepida said, patting Zane's head as he walked by. Pip left the small bridge and strode back into the living space, trying to remember where they'd stored their Multispecies Prep Pack. Pipolphi and Tilbei had agreed to pay the extra to get it. The salesman had been very persuasive about being a good interspecies neighbor. You never knew when you might need to stop and help someone out, even if that someone wasn't your own kind. With Louie and Zane on board, Pip was doubly glad they'd gotten it. If he could find it. It turned up, buried in the back of a closet. The pack was actually a suitcase, a big silver one that could have probably held Pip with room to spare for Louie. Tilly must have packed it because it was far too heavy for Pip to carry. The little alien groaned as he heaved on the handle, growling in frustration when it only scraped a few inches across the floor. Pipolphi glared at it, swearing in Sepida as he tried to at least get the damnable thing out of the closet. "Need help with that?" Zane asked as he reached forward and lifted the suitcase out of the closet with ease. "Where do you need it?" Pip sighed in utter exasperation; it was entirely not fair that Sepida were lithe and agile but could never be considered physically strong or intimidating. Although it certainly made Pipolphi appreciate all the power packed into Zane's big body. Pip shook away the desire to climb Zane like a tree, again, and pointed to a general use table. "Thanks," Pip said as Zane set it down for him. Pip leaned up to give a thank you kiss, luckily Zane leaned down to take it on his cheek. The Sepida couldn't reach higher than Zane's shoulder, even on tiptoe. Zane watched curiously as his little alien popped the ridiculously large suitcase open. Zane helped to lay it flat and open on the table. It seemed to contain boxes. Lots of white boxes of all different sizes. Pipolphi pulled out what looked like a handkerchief that had been laid on one of the boxes, but it seemed to have strange writing on it as though it were paper. Weird. Pip laid the cloth next to the suitcase and scanned it quickly, flipping it to the other side where it seemed to be laid out like a list. Pipolphi dragged his finger down the cloth until he gave a little chirp of triumph and dug into the suitcase, retrieving a box the size of a loaf of bread and setting it aside. The Sepida carefully put the other boxes back in their places and let Zane help him close the suitcase again. "Louie an' Zay no sick as a dog," Pip said happily, patting the box lovingly before tearing it open. Several things came out of the box. Zane cocked his head to the side, not realizing it made him look like an inquisitive Louie. He had absolutely no clue what any of the items were or what they could possibly be for. Another cloth square came out of the box, and Pip read it carefully, bands of lilac and yellow moving down his body as he concentrated. He laid out what he needed in order and turned to Zane. "Zay first or Louie first?" Pip asked. The Sepida patted Zane's hand. "Don't be scared. Pip take care of Zay and Louie." "Well, if it's something we both have to do," Zane mused aloud, still not quite sure what they were doing. "Then I can go first." "Louie watch and know don't be scare," Pip said, nodding his approval. "Louie!" the Sepida called. "Come over! Zay get medicine then it's your turn!" The English Setter rushed over and padded around in a circle around Pip before sitting down, his tail wagging, as he expected to be petted. Zane reached over to provide such petting. "Good! The gang's all here," Pip chirped, rubbing behind Louie's ear and giggling when the canine stole a quick lick on the alien's wrist. The Sepida went back to the table and picked up the directions and the collection device. Pip read out loud, falling into Sepida, {"Prepare for sample collection. Circulatory samples obtain the most accurate results. Enter sample type. Gruk, hekkens, sweat, lymph, blood… Yes, blood."} Pip looked at Zane apologetically. He'd feel terrible having to prick Zane and Louie, but he'd feel worse if they got sick because their vaccinations weren't as good as they could have been. {"Choose hide thickness. Ahmmm, medium? Press non-vital extremity, if available, against slot X."} Pip nibbled his lower lip and looked at Zane who was waiting patiently, seemingly fascinated by what had to be unintelligible babble to the human. "Ahh, Zay?" Pipolphi said gently. "Need to steal a little ouchie. Better on Zay's finger or toesies?" "Oh, uh, the finger's fine," Zane said as he held out his hand palm-side up for the Sepida. Pip took Zane's thumb. Bigger was better, right? The Sepida gave the digit a quick kiss before pressing it to slot X and hitting the little screen with his own finger. There was a quick snick, Zane didn't even jump as a lancet poked him and withdrew. It was just like having his blood sugar checked. Then the odd device latched around the small wound and applied a vacuum. That was less like having his blood sugar checked. The contraption gave a cheerful ding and released his thumb. When Zane looked at it, there seemed to be something clear and shiny covering the place he'd been pricked. Wow. {"Analyzing…"} Pip sighed, unconsciously cuddling up to Zane who put an arm around the Sepida. {"Hah, there we go. Do you know the species? Yes. Choose species from list of possibilities in dropdown menu… Human. Oh good, they have him. I was a little worried."} Pip grumbled through another analysis, Zane smiling softly and petting Pipolphi soothingly. {"Analysis complete. Necessary vaccination components as follows…"} Pip scanned through the list and set to work putting the inoculation together. It was precise work, though the directions were quite easy to follow. Pipolphi was glad he had a halfway decent science background that allowed him to confidently load the components into another device that sat short and squat on the table, humming every time Pip snapped a new loading tube into the side. In minutes, it was complete. Pip slipped a small, empty, clean tube into the top. It filled with clear liquid. Pip pulled it free, careful not to disturb the seal. The tube went into what looked disturbingly to Zane like a little gun. "S'ok, Zay. Look big here," Pip tapped the end of the tube that he'd inserted into the gun. "Mostly water. Water go 'way and just important stuff left in little ouchie. Just make a little circle of poke-pokes and all done." Pipolphi patted Zane's hand. "Promise." "I'll just think of it like getting a flu shot, then," the taller man decided, in awe at how much work went into what the Sepida was doing. Shots back on earth didn't seem quite as complicated as the one that Pip needed to give him. "Go ahead Pip; I'm ready." "Ahhmmm, need biggest squishy place on Zay," Pip said, not sure how to explain that he needed an area that was well padded with, if not fat, then at least muscle. The Sepida just wasn't entirely sure if where that would be on himself, or if his rump would be the same place on a human. The human immediately rolled up his sleeve. "I usually get my flu shots here on my arm," he pointed out. "Good," Pip said, rubbing around on the spot to try to locate the best target. The Sepida was glad he wouldn't have to shoot Zane's bottom. Pip was quite fond of that part of his human. Pipolphi pressed the tip of the gun snug to Zane's arm and pulled the trigger. Zane noticed a feeling of cold, immediately replaced by a stinging burn. It only lasted a few seconds, and it was over. The gun dinged, and Pip put it on the table. The Sepida threw himself into Zane's arms. "Zay, ok? Forgive me for ouchie?" The gymnast was always too happy for his own good whenever the Sepida fell into his arms. For a moment, he simply held the smaller man close. "I'm just fine," he insisted. "Barely even hurt." "Brave, Zay," Pip said proudly, kissing the human's collarbone since Pip didn't feel like crawling up to reach Zane's cheek. Pipolphi sighed, pulling away. "Louie turn, now." The Sepida crouched in front of the canine and hugged the big beast. "Sorry, Louie." Zane knelt down to take hold of Louie's collar, helping to keep him in place. "This is only gonna hurt for a little, ok, buddy?" he urged gently as he did his best to distract him. Pip cooed and encouraged as he took a bit of blood from the callused pad of Louie's paw. The canine twitched but didn't try to pull away. Pipolphi apologized profusely in Sepida and Louie licked Pip's face. The Sepida had to figure out what the English Setter might be called besides 'dog,' which involved a few minutes of confusion and hand gestures before Pip found 'canine' on the list of possible species. Making up the vaccine was faster than before, since Pip knew where all the components were and was comfortable with the system. Zane watched in fascination as his alien zipped through the process, Pip's hair tentacles snatching components that were out of reach. Before long, the Sepida was snapping the finished inoculation into the gun. Pip looked ready to cry at the thought of hurting Louie with the shot. The Sepida's solid turquoise eyes blinked rapidly as he squared his slender shoulders. "Where Louie squishy for ouchie?" Pipolphi asked. "His hind legs, that's where he was vaccinated last time," Zane explained as he continued to pet Louie's head and held his collar steadily. Pip blew out a breath and gently probed Louie's hip, looking for the spot with the most muscle. The Sepida parted a fluffy section of fur and pressed the vaccination gun to the canine's skin. The English Setter wagged his tail, delighted with the attention he was receiving. "Sorry, Louie-baby," Pipolphi said apologetically and pulled the trigger with a click and a hiss. Louie didn't flinch or move. He didn't even seem to notice. His tail kept wagging, and he turned his head to look at Pip, tongue lolling. "Sorry-Sorry!" Pip chirped, dropping the gun and hugging Louie's backend. "Was bad? Louie angry? Can bite me. Tear me a new one. Let me have it. Let 'er rip, Louie." The Sepida clenched his eyes tight and stuck his arm in front of Louie's face while still clinging to the dog's tail-wagging bottom. The canine merely licked the offered arm enthusiastically. Both Salty Pup and his Leader were were doting on him. Louie was happy. "No bite?" Pip said, a tremble in his voice. The little alien hugged the canine. "Louie is a good friend." Zane couldn't help but smile at the sight. "I'm sure he thinks the same way about you, too," he commented. His gaze then once again fell on the complicated medical equipment that the Sepida had been using. The gymnast had a hard time just reading the instructions on a bag of cookie mix. He wondered if all Sepida were taught how to use such equipment of it was just Pip's unique ingenuity. The human would bet on the latter rather than the former. "So, does this mean that the two of us won't get sick now?" he asked when a familiar voice drew their attention. {"Approaching Therubi Port,"} the computer chimed. {"Docking Segments A-C are full. Clearance given for Docking Segment D."} "We're here," Pip said, standing with a last stroke to Louie's velvety ears. Pipolphi took Zane's hand and led him to the bridge, Louie at their heels. "Can still get a little sick. No big sick now," the Sepida explained quickly. Pip slid into his seat and tapped in his acceptance of the rules and regulations of the space port. He didn't bother to read it, just flicked to the bottom and accepted. Pip knew the rules. Well, mostly. He'd skimmed the rules the last time he'd been there. But if the port let the Hunnars run around snatching people it didn't seem likely things were strictly enforced. Pip shook his head. They'd get Tilly back, safe. Zane and Louie would help. Louie had big teeth, and Zane was big all over. Maybe Pipolphi was soft and squishy, an easy target, but he wasn't alone. There was a pang in the Sepida's heart as he thought of Tilbei again. Tilly had been his protector more times than he could count. It was in the nature of all Nubra and woven into the symbiotic culture of the Sepida and Nubra. A balance of give and take that had evolved over millennia. Pip set the ship to automatically dock and turned to Zane and Louie. "Space, the final frontier." The Sepida pointed at the viewscreen showing Therubi Port as they approached. "Sort of Deep Space Nine. Hmmm, maybe more Babylon 5. More bad guys." Pipolphi shivered. "Tilly…" "We'll find her," Zane assured Pip as he placed a hand on the Sepida's shoulder. "Even if we have to fight the 'bad guys.'" Louie added his silent support by gently butting his head against the Sepida's thigh, or he just wanted pets. Pip drew comfort and strength from his friends' touches. He laid his hand over Zane's and stroked the top of Louie's big head. "Thank you," Pip whispered. "Never have I known such a stalwart friend as thee. You've got a friend in me." The ship gave a slight jerk, then shuddered before stilling again. Pip stood, keeping a hand on Louie's head and taking Zane's hand with the other. "We're here," Pip said, not relinquishing contact with the others on the way to the exit. The little Sepida took a deep breath and blew it out, his hair shifting anxiously as his body flickered from pink to gray and back again. Pipolphi lifted his hand from Louie's head just long enough to activate the door. There was a hiss as pressure equalized and the door opened, revealing the tube-like corridor that was the airlock. It wasn't fancy, serviceable and worn, but clean. The door to the ship shut behind them, and they walked the short distance to the interior hatch. "Lotsa aliens here. Big, small, nice, mean. I try to warn you about bad guys I see, okie-dokie? Most are just," Pip paused, trying to find the words, "funny-looking people." "Got it," Zane responded. He glanced down at Louie to give him instruction. "Stay close, buddy." As the three of them made their way to the check-in, Zane was having a hard time not gaping at all the different species they passed. They ranged from human-like to shapeless forms. He was so distracted that he nearly bumped into what looked to be humans with animal ears, a rabbit and mouse. The pair were striking. The rabbit was albino with snowy white lop ears that fell to his chest. His petal pink eyes sparkled as he leaned down to talk to his companion, a cutely freckled mouse with strawberry blond hair and a cute little button nose. {"Yay!"} the rabbit said happily as they passed. {"We found the Radirberries for Nixie's recipe!"} {"Now we can head back and feed the kids,"} the other one replied, his smile as wide as the rabbit's. Zane didn't have the slightest idea what they were saying. The port reminded him of the Olympics; people from all kinds of places and dialects gathering in one area. The only difference was that he had been able to understand a phrase or two when he was competing. At the moment, he couldn't even understand a single word in the crowd. The tall human kept to Pip's side with Louie next to them at heel. The crowd broke, and they found themselves in a patch of empty space that allowed Zane to see that they were heading toward a wall with several doors. Each had an alien next to it. They walked to a door that had no one in line to exit. It was watched over by an alien that appeared to be a head shorter than Zane but built wide and muscular. He was covered in shining black and green scales. The alien was definitely a he, since he wore nothing but a vest that the other aliens at the doors were also wearing. Zane forced his eyes back to the being's face which was more lizard than humanoid, which made it difficult to tell if the alien was smiling or snarling. Pip continued walking confidently, and Zane followed, though it wouldn't have been the door the human would have chosen. Maybe the one with the vested alien that looked like an Ewok. ("GREETINGS AND WELCOME TO THERUBI PORT!") the scaled alien bellowed when they stepped up to the door. ("MAPS CAN BE FOUND AT ANY OF THE HELP DESKS THROUGHOUT THE STATION WHERE STAFF WILL ALSO BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS! ENJOY YOUR STAY AT THERUBI PORT!") Startled at the loudness of the alien, Zane instinctively lowered his arm to shield the Sepida, should the reptilian man attack them. "Whoa, he's shouting. Is he angry?" He asked in wary concern. Slate grey eyes peered down to assess Louie, but the English Setter just laid down next to them in a relaxed manner. In those few moments of speech, a complex dance of biology and technology was happening. Pipolphi, like most people who interacted with others from different planets, had a tiny language chip in the superior frontal lobe of his brain. It was a spot relatively equivalent to Broca's area in the left frontal lobe of Zane's. The station employee had a chip as well. The lizard-like alien had an impressive data set of languages and dialects stored, a perk of working at a station that had a decent union. Any language in his chip would be translated and adjusted into his own language with only a fraction of a fraction of a second delay. How the chip could work that quickly without needing time to process a complete sentence or context was an avidly guarded secret that, so far, hadn't been cracked by reverse engineering or industrial espionage. All employees of the station had to be fluent in one of the common languages included in all language chips to ensure all visitors could be understood and translated by those visitors' chips. The lizard man spoke Ssahli with only a slight accent, which he was proud of, and hadn't needed to take any extra speech classes to get his job. Luckily, English as well as all other common Earth languages had been in the last data upgrade for employees. Allowing Zane's words to be almost instantaneously translated to the alien's mother tongue, overriding what the lizard man actually heard and seamlessly replacing it with the alien's native language. ("SIR, I AM NOT ENRAGED, I ASSURE YOU,") the greeter said in Ssahli, flashing a friendly, sharp-toothed smile. ("AND I'M NOT SHOUTING!") he yelled, causing Zane to tug Pip closer and take a step back. Pip patted his human's hand, the Sepida's own language chip easily making the greeter understood. Pipolphi had been more than startled the first time he'd been near a Khassith. The species were well known to be friendly and easy-going, if incredibly loud. "No problem, Zay. Person nice but loud," Pip explained. "Deaf as a post," the Sepida added, pointing to his own finned ear. "Just doing my job, ma'am," Pip said, not quite getting the words right for what he was trying to convey but hoping Zane would understand. The Sepida had a moment to wonder how Khassith understood other people when they spoke if the reptilian species couldn't hear well. Louie continued to sit calmly and wondered if any of the funny people might give him treats. He didn't smell any milkbones, but there were a vast number of new smells in the place that could hide the scent. Louie did his best to look like a good doggy, just in case. "Nice, but loud?" Zane mused. "Then, I apologize," he added as he turned towards the scaled man. Whether the alien was truly deaf or not, he made a note to ask Pip later. The last thing he wanted was to offend anyone. The Khassith's smile broadened, and Pip attempted to translate that the greeter wasn't bothered by Zane's reaction. {"Sir, do you know if there are any Hunnar ships docked right now and where we could find them?"} Pipolphi asked politely. He shifted from foot to foot, unable to contain his nerves that were painted on his skin in shades of pink and gray. The greeter's green-gold eyes narrowed. He leaned forward and seemed to be sniffing Pip. The Sepida noticed slits on either side of the Khassith's flat nose widening, the insides black and glistening. The Khassith blinked twice and straightened. ("I CAN GIVE YOU THAT INFORMATION, BUT I WORRY FOR YOUR SAFETY,") The Khassith shouted, fighting the protective urge to gather up the small Sepida, take him to the greeter's nest, and sit on the little one for his own well-being. The Khassith refrained. He'd gotten in trouble twice for such behavior, and he didn't want to get written up again. {"Please,"} Pip said earnestly, {"It's very important."} The Kassith frowned but sighed in defeat. He pulled a handheld device from his vest and tapped on it. A card the size of Pipolphi's palm popped out of the top. The greeter handed it to Pip, who was surprised to see it was printed in Sepida. ("MY NAME IS SS'RAH. MY CONTACT NUMBER IS ON THE BACK. PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME FOR ANY REASON. I'VE NO DESIRE TO FIND YOUR LITTLE SELF INJURED OR DEAD WHEN I AM ASSIGNED TO PATROL.") Ss'rah couldn't keep himself from gently patting Pip on the top of his head as though he were a hatchling. ("THE INFORMATION YOU SEEK IS PRINTED ON THE FRONT. PLEASE TAKE EVERY CARE WITH YOUR WELL-BEING.") Pipolphi was touched by the Khassith's concern. He reached out and patted Ss'rah's hand, the scales cool and smooth under his fingers. {"Thank you."} When Zane finally got used to the volume, he realized that the lizard man really did seem to be nice. He even patted Pip's head in a gentle manner, and Louie gave no indication of hostility towards him, so the scaled man was officially a good guy in his eyes. "So, where are we going now?" He asked Pip. "Find bad guys," Pip said, waving the small card as he led Zane and Louie through the doors, leaving Ss'rah behind. "Get Tilly. Save the day." The gymnast had nearly forgotten that Pipolphi was naked. On Earth, the Sepida had only worn clothing when Zane had taken him around humans. As soon as they'd returned to Zane's little island, Pip had stripped off as quick as he could. The tall man thought that it had something to do with the Sepida's mercurial coloring combined with how Pip seemed much more comfortable out of clothing rather than in it. The human's petite lover certainly seemed to have no qualms about walking confidently without a stitch on among the multitude of species that surrounded them. Pip didn't even have shoes or a bag to carry the paper the lizard alien had given him. As he looked around, Zane noted that Pip was not the only species that seemed to prefer to walk around in the buff. He made a mental note to ask the Sepida more about it later, as it didn't seem to be the time to discuss such things. Not to mention that there was a certain noise level surrounding them with the crowd milling about. As the three of them continued to walk, the human couldn't have been more grateful at how obedient Louie was. Though he was clearly glancing about left and right, he didn't seem to give into the urge to sniff at anyone. They had a close call when a massive man with husky ears and a tail walked past them, but Zane had been able to draw Louie's focus back. They had been walking for a few minutes when Pipolphi sucked in a breath and grabbed Zane's arm, pulling him between two food stalls against one wall. "Zay," Pip said, voice strained as he pointed. "Hunnars." It only took a moment for the human to find the group of five Pipolphi had indicated. Zane's first impression was of large, walking rats. Scruffy, ill-tempered rats. They were smaller than Zane had expected, certainly taller than Pip's five feet but nowhere near the gymnast's six foot four. They were covered in scruffy fur in shades of brown. The Hunnars snarled at any person smaller or weaker that got in their way while deftly avoiding any that looked as though they might be more than a match for the rat-like aliens. Thick, stiff whiskers seemed to be constantly moving as lips curled away from crooked, pointed teeth set in a pointed muzzle. Shiny, black eyes darted constantly looking for threats, advantages, or easy prey. Each Hunnar had a belt, bandolier, or both worn with black leather pants. Weapons weren't allowed on Therubi Station, but it was clear what the empty slots and holsters in the leather were meant to hold. As Zane watched, one of the group side-stepped to avoid an alien that looked like a cross between a polar bear and a porcupine. That Hunnar bumped into another, and suddenly there was a snarling, snapping fight in the middle of the crowd. People stepped back quickly, but it was over in moments. It had been quick and brutal. The winner continued walking with the others, his position closer to the front of the pack while the loser limped painfully at the back, trying to keep up while keeping pressure on a bleeding arm wound and pretending he felt no pain. Pip let out a ragged breath as the Hunnars disappeared in the crowd. Zane looked down before they left their hiding spot and found Louie wasn't at his side. He was worried until he saw the big English Setter sitting in front of one of the aliens that appeared to be running the vendor stall on one side of them. The alien was striking with thick auburn hair tucked behind elfin ears and creamy, pale yellow skin with brown stripes. The vendor was as nude as Pip, large breasts noticeable as the alien crouched in front of Louie, seeming to be deep in conversation with the dog. Louie even seemed to respond back. The other alien running the stand appeared to be the same species if the hair and skin coloring was any indication. Where the alien chatting with Louie was petite, the other could only be described as burly. Auburn hair was pulled back in a tight braid that trailed over a shoulder that bulged with muscle and ended just over flat pectorals. The big alien watched the smaller one with indulgent golden eyes. The customer being served left and the larger alien turned to the other and revealed it was as naked as half of the people that were around. Zane couldn't help but notice that where the human would expect a penis, said penis was noticeably lacking. The alien in front of Louie stood with a smile, and the human found a penis where he hadn't expected one, namely on what the gymnast had assumed was a plump-breasted woman. A quick glance (that Zane tried to stop but couldn't) showed what seemed to definitely be lady-parts below the waist of the big alien. Louie's tail thumped the floor as Zane and Pip took the few steps it took to reach the canine. The smaller, tiger-striped alien smiled at them, flashing long canines and sparkling whiskey-brown eyes. ("Hello,") the alien greeted in a smooth lyrical voice that Pip's language chip had no difficulty translating. ("Sorry if I stole your companion. My roommate in college was a Kaynen studying her home planet's early languages. I used to help her study all the time. It was fun to find out I remember more of it than I'd thought. Your friend is very kind to let me use my questionable verbal skills from years ago.") ("As if my boy ever lets anything get lost in that clever head of his,") The large alien huffed in a deep, growling voice, tugging the smaller male close and touching their noses together. The male flushed, pleased. {"We have to go, but if we're able and Louie would like it we will try to stop back so you can visit with him before we leave the station,"} Pip said. {"I'm afraid we have important business that we have to get to right now, though. I'm very sorry to cut your talk short."} The Sepida looked down at the English Setter. {"Sorry, Louie-baby. Can we go find Tilly?"} Louie gave a definitive bark, and the three of them carefully followed the Hunnar group that they had seen. Though he was quite lost and confused with everything that was going on and with all the different conversations Pip had with other aliens, he knew that they had a mission to fulfill. When they reached the dock that housed the ship, Zane took Pip's hand in his and gave it a firm squeeze. "Ready?" Pip nodded. "Tilly is in there. My turn to protect and serve."

    Yes, I have a feeling that we're all going to have a total blast when we get to that point.

    An English Setter padded along the stiff, partially wet sand in an almost regal manner as he approached the hooded Sepida on the beach. His fur was mostly white with brown spots that ran down the upper part of his body. The patterns nearly looked like freckles along his face when the Setter looked straight ahead. His left ear was completely brown, and his eyes were a golden brown that was a shade lighter than the brown on his fur. Louie was strong. He was a protector. Zane adopted Louie, then Little Salty Pup. Salty Pup was nice to lick because he was, well, salty. Yum. Louie had to hold himself back from giving the little one tongue baths. Louie would steal licks whenever he could, though, now that Little Salty Pup didn't make scared noises every time Louie stole a taste. Salty Pup was scared of everything. He knew Little Salty Pup wasn't really a pup, just a runt. Not like Zane. Zane was a big strong leader. Salty Pup was little and obviously much, much smaller than Louie. Louie was big and strong like his leader. Even though Salty Pup wasn't a pup, Louie was careful of him like one. Zane was careful, too, but definitely didn't treat Pup like a pup. Salty Pup had definitely reached maturity and seemed to always be in heat. Poor thing. Louie heard Salty Pup's mating calls regularly. He peeked in sometimes to make sure Zane and Salty Pup were okay and would end up simply cocking his head to the side and staring in confusion. They would never be able to make puppies doing it like that. Maybe Salty Pup was a young adult and would learn how to do it eventually? Louie had tried to demonstrate to Salty Pup how it was done one day with Louie's favorite Big Snuggle Bear. Louie was sure the poor pup was learning something with how big Pup's eyes got. But then Zane told Louie "No!" very loudly. Maybe Zane likes how Pup does it, even if it is strange? Every day, Louie laid down outside and guarded Zane and Salty Pup while they slept. They were his people, and he loved them. Louie looked over at Salty Pup, who was sitting obediently, so Louie was close enough to watch over him. Louie sat, tail swishing the sand, thinking. Zane was a Bringer of Yummies. Louie sometimes caught or found things to eat. Sometimes he barfed them up later, but that was okay. Louie hadn't seen Little Salty Pup find any of his own food. That was concerning. Salty Pup was small, but matured, and should be able to hunt. Movement caught Louie's eyes, and Louie knew what he needed to do. While Pipolphi wiggled his toes as the edge of the water flowed over them, he caught sight of Zane's pet hopping into the water and swimming around. Though he was still learning about dogs in general and their habits, this was the first time that he saw just how much Louie seemed to enjoy the water. How curious that a terrestrial carnivore such as Louie seemed to enjoy water just as much as his own kind. The creature was amazing, all muscles and long legs and soft fur. Pip had to admit that, when he could get his courage up, Louie was amazing to pet. Even if the big, white, pointy teeth were a bit terrifying. Louie suddenly bounded over to Pip, sending the little Sepida's heart into his throat. Pipolphi forced himself to stay still as the powerful carnivore barreled at him. Louie skidded to a stop a few feet away, tail waving like a damp flag. The beast's eyes were sparkling, and Louie was fairly vibrating with excited joy. {"Y-yes, Louie?"} Pip said politely. The dog bounced a step closer and spat something on the sand between them. Louie had held it very, very carefully in his mouth to keep from getting pinched. He'd had no desire to end up with a sore lip or tongue. Pip peered at the small, shelled, crawling thing on the sand. It looked so much like some of the shelled, bottom-dwelling animals that could be found on the Sepida's home world's beaches or ocean floor. It made Pipolphi smile brilliantly, warming his hearts. Even so far from home, things weren't so different on this strange, unfamiliar planet. There were commonalities to be found if one looked deep enough. Even though Pip and Zane were so different, so alien to each other, there was so much common ground. Like love. Love was universal. {"I think I've misjudged you, Louie,"} Pip mused aloud as the beast nosed the little crab. {"How did you know just what I didn't know I needed? Thank you, friend."} Louie promptly forgot the crab as Pip leaned over to hug the wet, sand-covered dog. The crab took the opportunity to beat a hasty retreat into the lapping waves. Salty Pup's happiness made Louie happy. If the Pup had trouble hunting, then he'd eagerly continue to feed him himself. In the distance, a sheen rolled over what appeared to be the invisible outline of the ship. Pip's eyes widened as he turned his gaze towards it. Once again, a rolling band of light slid over the outline of the ship. Pip jumped up and bolted toward the ship. A message. Someone had sent a message. It could be nothing. It might be some automated message about avoiding some star system that had become dangerous to civilians, something from his parents checking in on him, or even a wrong number. It could be Tilly…or Tilly's mom wondering where Pip was when they'd found his best friend's dead body, wondering why Pipolphi hadn't been there to protect him like Tilbei had protected Pip so many times. "Zay!" the Sepida shouted, his skin wavering between bright pink and sickly gray, needing his lover with him right then but unwilling to take the time to detour to the little house. Both Zane and Louie immediately rushed to Pip's side upon hearing his distress. The English Setter gave a concerned bark, and Zane was breathing heavily by the time he reached the Sepida. The human immediately looked the petite alien over. "Is everything ok? Did you get stung by a jellyfish?" Zane asked in one rushed breath. "Call," Pip told him quickly, opening the hatch to his ship and rushing inside with Zane and Louie on his heels. "I got a call. Leave a message at the tone. Scared. Scared for Tilly." The Sepida hurried onto the small bridge and sat at the controls, pulling up the message. {"Incoming message from Inture Relay, Section 5,"} the computer relayed. {"Apparent distortion,"} it warned before playing the message. {"Pip...Tilly! I got...Hunnars. Don't...port."} Static followed for several seconds. {"Message...no...okay!"} {Not okay!?} Pip gasped, the pink and grey hues interchanging rapidly across his skin. He turned towards his gentle giant, tears brimming in his eyes as he tugged on the hem of Zane's shirt. "Zay! Tilly not okay! This is madness!" He tried to explain. "Something's wrong with your friend?" Zane concluded. "Then you have to go to her! Need me to come with you to help?" "Stay with me? Save Tilly from Hunnars?" Pip said hopefully. "Come to kick some bad guy ass?" Zane gave the Sepida a firm nod. "Of course I'll come with you. We'll save your friend." He agreed. Movement near their legs alerted him to Louie. "Is it possible to bring Louie with us, too?" As much as the gymnast loved the English Setter that he had raised since he was a puppy, he'd rather that the canine be safe. He also knew a few trustworthy students of his that could take care of Louie if it was necessary to leave him behind. Would they even be able to find food for him in space? "Yes, Louie can come. Of course." Pip blinked. He'd just assumed Louie would come, too. Which was terrible of him. What if Louie had friends he would miss? Zane had said Louie was adopted and the alien had gathered such things meant that Louie had no biological family and Zane was the dog's family, now. Pipolphi hadn't heard anything about the canine having an occupation besides as a companion or perhaps guard for Zane. Pip had seen Louie patrolling the area around the house and keeping a protective eye on Zane and even Pipolphi. The Sepida felt a pang in his hearts, realizing he'd miss Louie if they left the beast behind. Pip turned an uncertain orange as he crouched in front of Louie. "Want to come, Louie? You have things that make you stay? Would be honored if Louie can come with us. Don't know when come back. Understand if Louie has to stay. Big decision. You need time to think about it?" Louie didn't know what was going on. But, he felt the tension and concern from Salty Pup. To try to dispel some of that concern, he began to lick the Sepida's face. The canine would do everything he could to protect the little one. The Pup should not be afraid. "Well, I guess that answers that," Zane responded with a chuckle. "Louie doesn't seem to want to part with you, either, Pip." The Sepida was overcome with relief that he wouldn't have to say goodbye to the strangely endearing beast and that Zane and Louie wouldn't be parted because of Pip. Pipolphi flung his arms around Louie, who was still damp and sandy but Pip didn't care. The Sepida's skin showed his happy relief, the orange replaced by starbursts of white and green flashing across Pip's skin like fireworks in the sky. "Go soon?" Pip asked, looking up at Zane. "Get your things, make arrangements, go save the day?" "Got it!" Zane responded as he rushed out of the ship and began to pack. He began with food, both for himself and for Louie. He figured that if Pip were fine eating certain foods on Earth, then both he and Louie would surely find something that they could safely eat in space. For the time being, however, the human brought as much imperishable food as he could find for their journey. In the case of clothing, he only brought along everything that was fairly new. The shoes and some of his coats were of a decent enough quality to last for a good few years. His final bags were packed with general toiletries like razors, a toothbrush, shaving cream, and Louie's shampoo. He almost forgot to bring along Louie's favorite bear, but the Setter began to drag it along himself as if he knew that they were going someplace far. It was amazing how fast two people could stuff bags and pack when it was an emergency. Barely an hour later, the three of them were set and ready for take-off. The only time concession they'd made was for Zane to give Louie a quick bath. Having a dirty dog with them in close quarters for however long space travel to their destination took seemed like something to avoid. While Zane took Louie to clean up, Pip checked on the state of the ship. All important systems were repaired. There were still some minor things that were being repaired, but nothing that would keep them out of the sky. Zane then approached Pip with a freshly groomed Louie. "Are we ready?" Pip nodded as he urged the human to sit beside him. "I am one with the Force. The Force is with me," he muttered to himself as if in encouragement. The Sepida took a deep breath and nodded decisively. He could do this. They could do this. With Zane with him, Pip thought he could do almost anything. Tilly would be alright; he had to be. Pipolphi tapped a screen causing a small jump seat to pop out from the wall next to the console. "Buckle up, Louie. It's gonna be a bumpy ride." Well, not really. Maybe it would rumble a bit exiting the atmosphere and jumping closer to the space port. The shock absorbers were excellent, and the report had said they were completely repaired. Just in case, though, it was better for Louie and Zane to be prepared for the possibility. Zane waste no time in settling Louie down, as well. He gave the Setter a scratch behind the ears. "Just hang tight, Louie. Think of this as a crazy car ride," he commented. Pipolphi entered the necessary commands to get them safely on their way. While the ship hummed around them, Pip pulled up the call number that had sent the message from Tilbei. The Sepida debated a moment before activating the number. If there was any chance Tilly might get the message, Pip had to try. He just would keep it simple, so if the Hunnars intercepted it, it wouldn't be likely to cause problems for his friend. {"We're coming to the port for you."} Pip said, voice trembling with worry. {"Whatever it takes, we'll find you and get you, I promise. Just hold on a little longer. Love you."} The message was sent. Pip sat back in his chair, suddenly tired and heart sick. A big warm hand reached out and took his just as the ship shivered a bit as it pushed through the atmosphere. Zane looked at the Sepida with concern and something like devotion in his eyes. Pipolphi tried to look at his human objectively for a moment. That man was muscled, broad-shouldered, and ridiculously tall. Intelligence radiated from his slate gray eyes. Louie barked once, excited with whatever it was that they were doing as long as they were doing it together and he was likely to be fed later. Pip's gaze went to Louie, a big, powerful, sharp-toothed, carnivorous predator. Pip nodded and sat up straight and sure, the uncertain orange of his skin morphing into a determined ruby red. The little alien squeezed Zane's hand in his. They could do this. They would. They'd get to the space port, sneak into an armed ship, and rescue the Nubra. {"Just hold on a little longer, Tilly, "} Pip said with determination. {"We'll find you on that Hunnar ship and get you loose. We're coming."} :::::::: Tilbei woke up to the most wonderful warmth of Jasper draped over him. For a brief second his deep peach-hued eyes widened as his mind brought up memories of the two of them on the Hunnar ship and then the Viceroy's ship. When his gaze refocused, he let out a sigh of relief. That's right, the two of them were finally safe in his dome home. When his heart settled back down, he found himself wondering how slow Jasper's heartbeat was. In a dreadful moment in the past, he recalled having to protect Pipolphi from a Hasserack. The Sepida had clung to him for dear life, and Tilly had been able to feel the rapid heartbeat of not one, but two hearts. Both Sepida and Nubra were quite different physically, but they thrived in the same waters. What would Tilly have to do to make sure that his Jasper thrived? He had a feeling that he'd do anything for the mixed Polkin. He wanted nothing more than to keep him safe and to protect him. {"Would you let me love you?"} He whispered softly in the language of the people in the waters. The Nubra reached down to gently pet the long, fluffy tail that had somehow curled around them both. {"Would you trust that I would follow you anywhere you want to go?"} "Hmmmnn," Jasper murmured, snuggling sleepily against the Nubra. "Tilly? Whassat?" He blinked slowly. "It was pretty. Almost like singing. Was it a poem?" The Nubra smiled, nuzzling one of Jasper's lavender ears. "I was just talking to myself," He responded softly. "Wondering if you'd allow me to be by your side no matter where you go…" "If you want to come, I'd like that," Jas said dreamily, then blushed. "I mean, come with me if I go somewhere. Not come, come. Well, unless you would like to, you know, come. I'm fine with that too." Jasper squeaked and hid his face in the soft fur of his tail. "I shouldn't be allowed to talk when I'm sleepy," came the hybrid's muffled words. The grin on the Nubra's face widened. "You have no idea how happy that makes me," he admitted as he gently moved the tail aside to kiss the half-polkin's cheek and chin. He had meant to merely express his affection, but as he was starting to realize, his body seemed to enjoy the proximity to Jasper a little too much. The orange spots on his body began to glow in embarrassment as two of his members became aroused. "Although, maybe you shouldn't have phrased it that way…" he confessed when his hips began to subconsciously grind down against Jas. "Why not?" Jasper asked, making a small, happy noise as he pressed up to feel the man against him. It always seemed to take quite a while for the half-Polkin to wake up and his brain was still a bit fuzzy. Jas rubbed his hands over Tilbei's skin, marveling at how firm the Nubra's muscles were but with the skin such a silky soft texture. It was delicious to touch. Now that Jas was not only sleepy but also aroused, he couldn't see anything that could be wrong with the situation. Tilbei forced himself to move back just as he felt his third member paying too close attention to the half-Polkin. "I desire nothing more than to be buried inside you once again. However, I'm quite worried about my friend. Is it okay if we check if he replied to the message first?" Jasper's eyes widened, his sleepiness blowing away like fog in a gale force wind. He sat up suddenly, nearly bonking his forehead against Tilbei's. "Oh, crap! I'm so sorry! I should have thought of that," Jas said, scrambling out of the pillows he'd nearly buried them in. "Of course you're worried about him, and all I can think about is getting into your pants… I mean, if you ever wore pants. Not that I'm complaining about the lack of pants situation. Fuck. I'm doing it again. Right, shutting up now," Jasper groaned, finding the soft length of deep green fabric Tilbei's mother had given him to use as a cover, though she'd been honestly bewildered why he'd want to do so. The hybrid quickly wrapped the fabric around his waist, adding a few twists and tucks to make it look prettier. When Jas was done, the wrap clung to his hips and ass, tucking just under his tail, then flared a small amount below that to allow for easy movement. The rich emerald shade made Jasper's lilac skin look luminous. "I may not like clothing, but I have to admit that it looks quite good on you," Tilbei confessed. "Will you come with me to check on the ship?" he invited as he extended his hand for the other man to take. The two of them then headed towards Tilly's scouting room, which was little more than a flat, round platform that rose upwards like an elevator into a glass dome that provided a 360° view of the shore, the ocean, the sky, and the land mass where the Viceroy's ship was docked. It was immediately apparent that the ship had received a message due to the way that it shifted colors, almost like a color-shifting lamp. The colors shifted from purple to blue to green and back again. "Pip must have replied!" Tilly gasped. "Let's go, Jasper!" he urged as the two of them went back down and then exited Tilly's personal dome home to rush over to the ship. The Nubra wasted no time in pulling up the message. {"Incoming message from Rapture Relay, Section 104,"} the computer relayed. "Section 104? Damn, that's far!" Tilbei murmured aloud before the message was played. {"We're coming to the port for you."} What was unmistakably Pipolphi's voice rang through. {"Whatever it takes, we'll find you and get you, I promise. Just hold on a little longer. Love you."} "What!?" Tilly responded with a frown. "They're going to Inture Relay 5? But that's where we left the Hunnars!" Jasper frowned, noting that the message from Tilbei's friend had piggy-backed on another message. He also noted that it sounded suspiciously like Tilbei's friend had said he loved Bei. Jasper's Bei. The hybrid leaned forward and tapped the console. Tilly's voice came over the speakers, rough with static. {"Pip…"} the message began, but it was garbled with chunks missing. "It sounds like what you sent to him got screwed up," Jas said, still frowning. "Fuck," Tilbei hissed under his breath. "I can't let him go out there by himself! If the Hunnars catch him, they'll milk him for life!" He took hold of both of Jasper's hands. "Jas, do you mind staying here with my mom for a while? I can't ask you to risk your life or be captured again by the Hunnars…" "If you get to stay by my side, then I get to stay by yours." The half-Polkin looked positively mutinous. He reflexively stomped each of his feet twice. "If you try to leave me with your mom so she can feed me, cuddle me, and be super nice to me I'm going to be so mad at you that I'll...do something that will show my grumpies!" Jasper blinked, his indigo eyes filling with something Tilbei didn't like the look of. Jasper bit his lip before speaking again, his voice soft and uncertain. "Or is it that you want to go without me because he's the one you said you were in love with? And in his message back he said he loves you?" The hybrid backed up, trying to pull his hands from Tilbei's. Tilbei's peach-hued eyes widened. Before his lover could pull away, he tugged him into his arms. "No, Jasper. That's not it at all," he refuted adamantly. "Yes, I admit that I was once in love with Pip. I'm not going to deny it. But, the love Pip and I share now is purely platonic. He didn't mean love as in the love that you and I share." The Nubra hugged Jasper tightly. "I've felt nothing that compares to the love you and I share. I didn't want to bring you with me because I'm afraid of losing you." "I'll stick to you like a prickle bur stuck in winter fur," Jas assured. "I won't get in the way, I promise. I'll help. If you go without me I'll worry the whole time, it'll make me get sick, and I'll die." Jasper sank into the Nubra's warm embrace. "I love you. Don't leave me behind." Tilbei felt his heart clench. "I love you too, Jasper," he confessed. "Then, let's tell my mom before we go, and we'll head out together."
