It's a sex scene between Anita and Richard. Or rather, half of it is sex. The other half is just stupid.
It opens with Anita licking water off Richard's penis, and I have to say this is the biggest bathtub I've ever heard of.
I licked and drank the water until his body lengthened and hardened.So Richard's entire body turns into a seven foot cucumber? Gotcha. (LAUREL. SAY. PENIS.)
He put two fingers inside me, and he actually closed his eyes, concentrating, searching, until he found that spot, no bigger than a fifty-cent piece, that spot just inside and to the front of the opening.Oh for FUCK'S SAKE. One: It's a vagina. Not an opening. And it's the G-Spot, not "That spot". You are a FIFTY YEAR OLD SEXUALLY ACTIVE WOMAN. USE YOUR FUCKING WORDS. (Hey, that's a double entendre...) Two: If the G-spot is as big as a fifty-cent piece inside the vagina it shouldn't be hard to find.
“You’re wet,” he said, in a voice that was a little strangled with need.SHE WAS IN THE BATHTUB NUMBNUTS. OF COURSE SHE'S WET.
And then they have a scramble for a condom because it's not like they were totally planning sex for the last half hour or anything. However, Laurell gets an e-cookie for remembering that promoting safe sex is important. Now if she could just find her way to "Safe, Sane and Consentual" we'd be in great shape.
Condoms lived in the bathrooms and bedrooms of any place I was alone with the men.The whole "Inanimate object lived" thing works when you're being cutesy. Now is not the time. Here it just sounds like the condom is mouth-breathing in the corner every time Jean Claude or Asher take a dump.
Richard begs Anita to feed on him.
I am going to pretend VERY HARD that Richard has managed to turn a major trigger issue into a turn-on, because the alternative is too fucking creepy for me to go. Seriously, this whole "Rape victim has sex with their abuser" is creeping me the fuck out. It's consensual this time, but it's still REALLY creepy.
The end of him found the end of me, so that each stroke hit as far into my body as it could, and still he came in and in, so hard, so fast, he was almost a blur in the mirrors.
So basically Richard is jackhammering her cervix so fast she can't track his movements. Oh, and she repeats that "blur in the mirrors" part once more when Richard starts going faster.
I fed on Richard’s energy, fed on the part of him that was wolf, and human. I fed on all of him, took in every last delicious inch of his power, as I took in every last delicious inch of his body. When he let himself go like this, he gave so much energy.
Please GOD tell me they remembered to protect the St. Louis pack. PLEASE tell me that Richard, at least, had the presence of mind to shield that connection off. Otherwise Anita just raped 800+ people in the city of St. Louis.
And of course, after the sex Anita is badly damaged from Richard's ramming speed. Oh, she's experianced this with Micah, so it's alright, but unlike all of the Micah/Anita sex scenes this one happens on screen instead of off. Because we want to see EXACTLY how much Richard has hurt Anita through consensual sex.
“It isn’t hurt the way you say it, Richard. I’m not hurt, I hurt; it’s not the same thing.”
So Richard goes all "I hurt you and enjoyed it" and Anita is all "Yeah, but I didn't mind so it's okay" and this repeats while we get exceptional descriptions of Anita's severe post-sex cramps.
“I didn’t know if you could take this, Anita. I didn’t know if I would break you. The thought that I might fuck you until I pushed my way into parts of your body that should never be touched, excited me.
So Richard was trying to literally impale Anita on his dick. Gotcha.
Anita, of course, has a steller reply.
“I’m not sure it’s sick at all. You didn’t do it. You just thought about it.He didn't just think about it, Anita. HE ACTUALLY TRIED TO DO IT. He didn't rip you apart with his teeth but he did just admit to trying to hurt you. And for the record, there are certain fantasies that aren't safe. Rape fantasies with yourself as the rapist, for example. It's a gray area, but you become the parts of yourself that you feed. There's a REASON certain kinds of porn are banned, and why the rape e-books got yanked from Amazon and Kobo last year. Saying "You only think about it so that's okay" is UTTER FECKING NONSENSE.
Richard realizes that Anita's cramping is getting more severe, so he gets up to get a doctor. Anita protests that she's fine, she just needs a little more recovery time.
I don't think you're supposed to have heavy bleeding and cramps after good sex.
Richard then realizes that Anita is really experianced because of Micah and he throws a little hissy fit that Anita's feild has been plowed by everyone except him, and he doesn't get any firsts.
And then they start talking about Rania, and how Anita could summon Rania to make her cramps better.
Raina’s ability to heal was something I had retained. It had been one of the reasons that Richard had made her munin, instead of leaving her body to rot.I do NOT remember it being like that. I remember that Rania became Munin because that's what happened. I do NOT remember Richard deciding to keep a SEXUAL SADIST MURDERER on as magic. And given that Rania was also his rapist and he hated her 100% of the time, I can't imagine him electing to do that EVER.
...you know, I think Richard probably needs to take a good, long look at his choice in women because I'm detecting a pattern here.
Richard explains that Rania was his first, so she broke him in on causing rough, awful pain and that's why he likes to fuck Anita until she bleeds.
The chapter kind of winds down with Richard and Anita talking about what Rania did to him and then him wandering off to take a shower. End of chapter.
