Adrian didn't need telling twice and was up as soon as Stephen said so, walking to his side and stopping, not sure if Stephen wanted him to kneel or stand so waiting for some sort of command. It was good to hear Stephen speaking so normally to Sean, it gave him some sort of focus point. The thing he didn't like here was the fact that Stephen wasn't the same so having him speak to Sean almost playfully made it easier.
Sean snorted at the remark, Stephen not knowing the half of it. He'd missed the explosive comments afterwards, after all. "You're not joking. She wouldn't shut up for an hour after you left and she was still fuming when she went home," he said, smiling. "I think it's the most human anyone's ever seen her in Masters."
He smiled. "I'm sure I'll manage to find the will to live," he said, stroking his fingers through Liam's hair again. "Do you want to watch, pet?"
Liam looked up. "If it pleases you, sir."
Sean smiled, satisfied. "It does," he replied. "As for it being his first time, you wouldn't tell tonight is his second. He's not been trained, not at all like the rest of the subs and slaves here, but he's passable. He's certainly not a discredit to you."
