“You really do have to make a choice,” Saul told Jack Henry as he got the rest of the way undressed. It felt good to be naked. The clothes had become too much—a civilized veneer covering something that was no longer civil. “If you don’t speak up, one of us is going to go too far. And I don’t want it to be me.”
“Me either,” Elias said. “I want to respect your right to choose, but it needs to be soon.”
Jasper rose to his feet so the three of them surrounded the omega. Jack Henry turned in the center of the triangle they made, surveying them. He looked pleased, neither scared or uncertain, the only one of them still dressed but as lost to the call of the moon as any of them.
“Make a choice,” Saul begged him. “Because this is getting…” Difficult, tense, uncomfortable. Hard. So hard. Saul massaged his cock, unable to resist its insistence any longer.
Jack Henry kept rotating. Every time he faced Saul, Saul felt the heat of his eyes. Jack Henry wanted him, had always wanted him. Saul knew it, but Jack Henry didn’t say it. What he said was, “I don’t wanna.”
“Don’t wanna fuck?” Jasper asked doubtfully, his voice laced with humor.
“Don’t wanna choose. I like you all.”
“But who do you like best?” Elias insisted.
Jack Henry shook his head, still revolving slowly, his eyes and teeth gleaming. “There is no best. I couldn’t decide before the race, and I can’t decide now. Jasper’s my bad boy, so ruthless and feral. Saul’s my dreamboat, big but kind. And Elias is my best friend, the one I turn to, the one I tell my dreams to. I want it all. I want all of you.”
“Then what are we going to do?” Saul asked helplessly. If the only answer was to fight, he had the strength for it, but the three of them had banded together to protect Jack Henry. It seemed a shame to turn their cooperation into a competition—a bloody and perhaps lethal one. But if Jack Henry couldn’t choose for himself, how were they supposed to choose for him?
