The Heartless Soldier
Chapter 7: Don’t Disturb the Beast
Warning: Very mild smut
“What have I done?” I mumble softly to myself so that no one around me would hear. So no one could hear about the terrible act I just committed. But I was too late. “Hey Babe, you okay?” Johnny asks walking out of the room like he has no idea what I have just done.
My body releases from the stiffness as I throw the scraps of my ripped up letter back into the trash. I fake a smile and turn around to face my best friend. “Yes, I am fine. Thank you for asking. I have to go and uh take care of a problem. Medical problem. Alex just informed me of a sprained ankle” I lie right in his face.
“Oh, okay. Want me to come with you?” he asks examining my face which is probably red. “Nope! I’m good!” I respond skipping away trying to act like nothing was wrong. “Okay, I’ll catch you later!” I hear Johnny yell from down the hall. I stop skipping and return to my slow walk.
How do I approach this situation? Do I just go up to him and say ‘Hi! I’m really sorry for spilling your secret!’. Or ‘Hey, look being a sex addict isn’t so bad!’. No. No. No. No. You will approach him, pull him aside, apologize for being the idiot you are and walk away. Yes. Perfect!
Peeking outside the tent, I see Calum, Alex, and Michael chatting up some of the other nurses. Calum’s foot was propped up onto the bench of a wooden table and he was biting his sunglasses with his perfect white teeth. His eyes weren’t on the girl’s face at all because I can clearly see him checking out her rack from this far away.
I shake my head at how disgusting and disrespectful he can be. Taylor, the pretty blonde he is talking to, suddenly wraps her arms around his neck and whispers something in his ear. Something sexual I assume. Calum laughs after she pulls her head away. She kisses his cheek and walks away but she notices my presence. “Hey Y/N! I have something to ask you if you have a minute!” she smiles giving me a girly wave.
Does this girl have eyes like a hawk or what? I didn’t want to take any chances of Calum seeing me but I bet him hearing my name made him angry. I ran around the tent as fast as I could to avoid her. I kept running until my body hit basically a brick wall in my opinion but it was a body.
A tall figure that I couldn’t see quite well since I was falling back about to crack my head open. Two strong arms caught me as I was just about to hit the ground. “Woah there, you okay?” the figure laughs. I shake my head trying to get rid of the silver dots in my vision. As they drifted away, a pair of sweet, chocolate brown eyes stare directly into mine with concern. “You okay?” he asks again not breaking the eye contact between us.
I have no words to describe the beauty in front of me. I swear the Gods of heaven created this man holding me tightly in arms. His hair was chocolate brown just like his eyes but a bit lighter. His face was sweet, kind but his jaw could slice a whole chunk of rock if it had to.
“I’m okay now” I smile as he lifts us up slowly. “Good thing I was here to save you from that fall” he laughs. God, I could listen to his laugh all day. “More like great thing” I mumble to myself. “Did you say something?” he asks. “Uh, nope! Just a little out of breathe from that run” I chuckle nervously. “Where you off to?” he asks me. I didn’t want to lie anymore. “I was actually running away” I admit.
“Running away? From what if I may ask?” he replies. “Yes, running away from someone” I respond playing with my sweaty fingers. “Are you in some sort of trouble? Is someone after you?” the man in front of me questions me. “No. Well sort of but I’m not in any danger. Let’s just say I don’t want to help a colleague in training because then all of my brain cells would die in the amount of time I am with them” I say.
“Haha you’re a funny one” he laughs. A moment later, he slaps his forehead. “Oh my, I am so sorry for not introducing myself. I’m Thomas. You can call me Tom, Tommy, Thomas, whatever you would like” he chuckles giving me his hand to shake. “Nice to meet you, Thomas. I’m Y/N” I smile gladly shaking his hand which is way bigger than mine.
“Y/N, what a pretty name for a pretty face” he smirks. “Classic” I shake my head adoring his charm. “You think?” he grins. “So, Thomas. What are you doing around here?” I ask. “Well, I got transferred here from another base in Ohio because apparently my position was not needed there anymore. They sent me here to lead along side Lieutenant Hood since they think that we will be a great team together” he smiles shoving his hands in his front pockets.
Hood? Calum? “You poor thing” I admit to him. “Why do you say that? Thomas asks. “Lieutenant Hood can be pretty tough from the things I have seen” I say. “Well, I’m sure he isn’t that bad. Any advice though?” he asks.
“Try to stay on his good side. Listen, follow, do everything he asks because if you don’t..he can be quite mean when people don’t follow his orders. That sight is not pretty” I tell him. “I will keep that in mind. Thank you very much, Y/N. If you don’t mind, I gotta go unpack. I am sure I will see you around” Thomas smiles picking up his bags.
“No problem. It was very nice meeting you!” I reply. “You as well, Love” he winks at me and makes his way towards the group of men that were waiting for him. For a second, I thought to myself that this could be a good thing. Thomas can sprinkle some of his gentleman-like personality onto Calum but I pray that things don’t backfire to where Calum turns Thomas into an asshole just like him.
Guilt rises in my stomach again as I realize I still have not apologized for spilling Calum’s secret. I’ve missed my chance since him and some of the other commanders are walking into Alex’s office for a meeting I suppose. I sigh walking back into my room. Neither Jen nor Johnny were here at this very moment which I thanked god for because all I want to do is cry. Cry because I am an idiot for breaking my promise to him. Cry because I felt the tiniest pang of jealously when I saw him chatting up Taylor. Cry because I just hate the feeling of being hated by someone else.
LATER ON THAT DAY…
“I shouldn’t of said anything to you guys even though you’re my best friends. I promised him I wouldn’t tell a soul and look what I did. When I told you, he was right outside our door because he was dropping off a letter. I found that same exact letter ripped up into pieces next to the trash down the hallway” I explain the situation I’m in to my two quiet friends sitting in front of me.
“Shit, Y/N. I’m sorry for being so obnoxious about it. Hopefully when you apologize he will forgive you” Johnny sighs looking down at his feet. “That’s the thing! He won’t ever forgive me for what I did! I screwed everything up” I pout. “He’s off duty for the day now, Y/N. Why don’t you go see if you can find him. Take him aside and apologize. Do you want us to come since we know about this as well?” Jen asks me.
“No, you two didn’t do anything. This is my situation to deal with” I respond getting up from my bed. “Where are you going?” Johnny questions me as I walk to the door. “I’m going to find him and say that I am sorry” I reply throwing my thin grey sweatshirt over my scrubs. “I’ll be back later” I say to them.
I walk out of my room, down the hall, and outside of the tent. I notice Pat talking to a delivery man so I skip over to ask him where Calum might be. “Hey, Pat!” I say putting on a fake smile. “Hey, what’s up” he responds stopping in front of me with a box in his hands.
“I was wondering if you might know where Calum is? I have to check up on his shoulder” I lie. “Oh okay. Um, I think he’s in the cafeteria” Pat answers. “Great, thanks! Hope those boxes aren’t too heavy!” I shout walking away from him. “Nothing I can’t handle!” Pat winks as he continues to head towards the tent.
I wrap my arms around my chest since the night is beginning to get chilly. Taking a deep breathe, I poke my head inside to check out the scene and it was hectic. Everyone here was all packed into this place. Card games were being played, beer pong, music was blasting. People seemed to be having quite a fun night.
I scan the room like a lost puppy trying to find its owner. I feel stupid but I have a reason for looking this stupid right now. “You look lost, Love. I mean I’ve even found my way around here” I hear someone chuckle. I look to my right and there Thomas was standing with a beer in his hand. He is wearing a red flannel that shapes his upper body very well. I almost blush at the sight of him. “Oh no. I’m just looking for Calum…I mean Lieutenant Hood” I tell him.
“And you my lady can find him over there” Thomas grins and points to Calum and Taylor almost sucking each others faces off. “Good luck!” he gives me a wink and walks past me. Well shit this is going to be awkward as hell. They are sitting on the same side all wrapped up in one another. I wanted to gag at the sight.
I slowly make my way towards them as Taylor lifts her head to notice my presence. “Hey, Y/N! I couldn’t find you earlier but I still hope you can help me with the thing I asked you about” she smiles as Calum is watching me now but with a stern look on his face. I didn’t want to be rude to her since I practically ran away. “Oh yeah sorry about that. Someone needed tending” I lied. After a moment of silence and awkward feet shuffling, I got the nerves to ask if I could speak to Calum.
“There is nothing we need to talk about” he sighs sipping his bear. “What do you mean? Yes there is” I tell him. “Um..no there isn’t” he says again looking at me like I’m dumb. I know on the inside he is raging mad but he is keeping his cool around Taylor. My brain sprouted with an idea because Taylor asked me about shoulder injuries! How can I be so clueless!?
I smile to myself as I stand right next to Calum. “Hey Taylor, you know how you were asking me about pressure points in the shoulder blade?” I ask her. She nods like a puppy waiting for a treat. “Well, as you can see Calum’s shoulder is healing very slowly since he got shot here. You can tell by the swelling that it needs to be cleaned and if not, then it will get infected and of course you know that” I start to explain.
“Anyway, my point is that if you place your thumb here” I tell her placing my thumb directly on the side of his wound. “And if you press” I add on pressing my thumb against his skin. “Ouch! What the fuck!?” Calum shouts. “You add on pain to that particular muscle and it can affect the neck along with the back of the head as you can see by his stiffness” I smile taking my thumb off his shoulder.
“But it looks like he needs to get cleaned up so do you mind if I take him real quick? It won’t take long” I ask her. “Oh yeah of course!” Taylor complies as I force Calum off the seat now holding his muscle. I can tell by his face that he is not happy with what I just did.
When we escaped the loud music, I brought us outside into the chilly air. I was suddenly about to start this conversation but Calum interrupts me with a gruesome look on his face. “What the hell was that?” he asks. “I needed a reason to talk to you and to apolog-”. “Oh shut the hell up, Y/N. You have nothing to say and I have nothing to say to you. So if you will excuse me, Taylor is waiting for me” he tells me trying to get past him.
“Are you two dating or something?” I ask blocking him with my hand. “Why do you care? You jealous? Even if we are, you going to spill that around too?” he asks. “Look, I’m sorry for spilling it! It was completely out of my character to do something like that. I really am sorry! I don’t know what was wrong with me at that moment it just came out….accidentally” I pout looking away.
“A silly apology like that is wasting my time. You promised me and you broke that promise on the same fucking day!” Calum growls crossing his arms. I was about to say more but he stopped me by raising his hand. “No. Don’t. You’re wasting my time. Stay out of my way and go back to your friends” he says shoving past me.
I turn around and watch him about to go back in but he stops. “No. You know what? I think I’m gonna settle this the only way I know how” he smirks. His eyes instantly grow dark grey. I became speechless as he starts to speed walk over to me. “What are you doin-. Put me down!” I shout quietly as Calum lifts my body over his shoulder.
“Sorry, no can do. You have a punishment waiting for you” he responds. “Where are you taking me!?” I panic trying my best to see if anyone is actually watching this kidnapping. All of a sudden, I felt a slight pinch of pain on my butt. “Ouch! That wasn’t very nice!” I pout smacking Calum’s butt in return.
“Oh so you do like spanking, huh?” he asks. I could tell he was smirking. “No! That hurt!” I argue. “Well too bad, Sweetheart. You’ve got a lot more spanks coming to you” he chuckles as he carries us up the stairs to his place. “Don’t call me that” I growl as I dodge my head to the side as it almost hit his door.
A few seconds later, I was greeted with the dark blue sheets of his bed. “Don’t move” he commands as he disappears from my vision. I moved to sit on the edge of his bed while he came back into the room. He had something loosely hanging from his right hand while the other held a bottle lotion. I furrowed my eyebrows in confusion.
Watching his every move, Calum bends slowly down in between my legs so he is exactly the same height as me. “I’m going to bend you over my knee and give you your punishment. Do you understand?” he whispers looking me straight in the eye. “Good” he replied standing back up and sitting down next to me.
Suddenly, he throws me over his knee without any warning. Next, my pants along with my thong fly off my bottom. “Neon yellow, huh?” he asks me. I blush hard as that is the color of my underwear that was just ripped down my thighs. “It’s a good color” I answer looking down.
“Put this over your eyes” Calum orders handing me a red silk sleep mask. “What’s this for?” I ask. “To block your sight. Put it on. Now” he says strictly. I follow his orders and place the mask over my eyes comfortably. “Why aren’t I allowed to see?” I ask. Following that, Calum’s large hand meets my left cheek which creates a loud sound. “You ask too many questions” he tells me rubbing my cheek as he hits it once more.
I squint my eyes and bow my head everytime he spanks me. I can feel my skin starting to swell. My breathe becomes heavy as Calum begins to speak again. “Do you know why you’re getting this punishment?” he asks. “Ye-Yes” I stutter gripping his bed sheets. “And what is the reason?” he questions me resting his hand on my bottom.
“Because I broke our promise” I sigh biting my shoulder waiting for the next spank. “Does this hurt?” he asks spanking me for the fifth time. “Yes!” I shout because it did. I’ve never been spanked before. “How about now?” he asks but his hand didn’t find my butt, it gently touched somewhere else. A place that no one else but myself has touched.
“Ahh! Mhm!” I shout biting my shoulder as his fingers play with my heat. “I bet you’ve never had a cock in here. Is that true, Y/N?” he asks. “Sadly” I groan because it was true. I am a virgin. “I figured” Calum responds before I felt a cold drip of lotion on my butt. “Wait! What kind of lotion is that?” I ask taking of the silk mask from my eyes.
“Shea butter. Why?” he asks rubbing my red covered bottom. “Well cause humectants are ingredients like AHAs, sodium PCA, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, urea, trumella extract, and dicyanamide make skin dry and my butt doesn’t deserve to be dry after that” I explain.
“Why are you so sexy when you talk medically?” Calum asks pulling me onto his lap. “Sexy?” I say looking at him. “Yes, sexy” he sighs holding my waist. After a few moments, I ask him how he knew I was a virgin. “I could tell when I first met you. It’s kinda like a sixth sense. It’s strange but it comes in handy sometimes” he answers.
“I’m ashamed of it” I pout bowing my head. “Why?” he asks. “Because men don’t like to fuck virgins” I reply. “Am I right?” I add on. “Your curiosity really turns me on, Y/N” Calum grins. “It does?” I answer. “What would you do if I kissed you right now?” Calum questions softly handling my chin.
“I mean we have kissed before and I liked it so” I shrug my shoulders. “Fuck” he whispers before my lips came into contact with his. It felt like heaven. His tongue immediately begged for entrance while the scent of his cologne filled my nostrils.
I instantly felt stuck as he leaned us both back. Calum crawled over me without breaking the kiss. “God if you weren’t a virgin, I would have taken you about seven times by now” he huffs. “You aren’t going to fuck me?” I curiously ask as his lips slip away.
“Shh, Princess. Please stop talking before I have to shove my cock in you” he whispers holding my face.“To be honest, I don’t think I’m going to be able to keep my hands off of you because I plan to fuck every hole in your sexy ass body by the time boot camp ends”
