In Brist's Time - Chapter 13
not serious!” Was Lucas’ reaction when he was informed of his
parents' plan to leave the twins behind. Regina nodded. “When are
soon, but what about our horses?” Lucas asked.
David smiled. “Thanks to Brist.”
joking!” Lucas exclaimed.
not!” David laughed.
Lucas asked incredulously.
Brist said, strolling into the room, Sarah balanced on her hip. “I
came to see how you were doing, and to introduce you to Sarah here.”

does he look like?
set Sarah on the bed, gently pushing her to investigate for herself.
“Find out with your own two hands.”
placed her hand on Lucas’ face, once she discovered where it was.
“You feel like my father. What color are your eyes?” She lightly
ruffled his hair. “What about your hair, what color is it?” She
placed her hand on his cheek. “I hope my father didn’t hurt you
too bad. I don’t understand why he would shoot you. Were you mean
As much as Lucas had
wanted to hate this child – once he figured out that she was the
daughter of the thief – he found that he couldn’t bring himself
to actually hate the little blonde angel.
baby, your daddy didn’t shoot Lucas, one of his men did,” Brist
smiled, took the tiny hand that rested on his face in his, brought it
to his lips and kissed it. “To answer your first questions, as you
can see, I have light brown hair and gray eyes.”
“I wish I could see,” Sarah replied
with a sigh. “ I used to be able to, but now, I can just barely
remember what things looked like.”

expressions of sudden understanding. Regina and David more so, for
they now realized that it was fairly obvious and that they should

Meanwhile, he carefully sat up.

Newmoanya took my brother Alan away. I had not been allowed near Alan
in so long because he was sick, and then we were finally here, and my
sister was soooo hungry, mummy must have given her away too, but when
I ask when they’re coming back, mummy just says that they’re with
her mum in a place called Heaven.
Brist was on the verge of tears. Sarah reached towards the sound of
Brist? Will you tell my mum that I will always come back; that I
would never leave her like that?” She asked.
was crying freely now. She plucked the child from Lucas and hugged
her, assuring her that she would do it the second she got a chance.
you think that Brist and I might have a few moments alone? I wish to
speak to her,” Lucas asked his parents.
how would you like to explore the garden?” Regina asked.
“Oh, I would love
it!” Sarah exclaimed. Regina picked her up and headed out the door.
David gave his son a questioning look, but followed his wife without
a word, closing the door behind him as he left.
doctor says I shall be able to leave as soon as I feel up to it. My
wound isn’t that bad; nothing’s broken, and he says there’s no
internal bleeding,” Lucas smiled.
wonderful!” Brist replied cheerfully. Lucas sighed and decided to
come directly to the point.
I really want to talk to you about is Sarah.”
“Sarah? What about
her?” Brist questioned, intrigued.
know I’ve just met the child, but I’ve already become quite taken
with her,” he paused hesitantly.
Brist pried curiously.
I want to take her with me when I leave.”
I don’t know. I just feel as if her predicament is all my fault. As
am somehow responsible for the tragic condition of her family. I want
to protect her, and to show her that life can be full of joy... and
that ships don’t have to be feared,” he sighed. “Or maybe I
just want to reassure myself that I am ready to be a father.”
you going to be a father?” Brist asked, surprised.
“I don’t know what possessed me to
confide this to you, but yes. I dallied with the daughter of a
client; a wealthy plantation owner who has sold quality sugar to our
family for years. They live on an island called St. Eustatius.
Well... She wanted me to marry her, but I got scared. I told her that
I had to come here to meet with my family as was scheduled, but that
I’d be back as soon as I could. I should have married her then and
brought her with me, but as I said, I was scared. I thought to talk
with my family first, but I couldn’t tell them.”
not?” Brist asked non-judgmentally.
sighed again. “Well, once I got here, I realized that it would
disappoint my mother to find out what I did. I figured that if I went
back, married her, and then brought her back, saying that I married
her as soon as I found out she was pregnant, then… they won’t
know I ever contemplated doing the wrong thing,” Lucas explained
awkwardly, feeling frustration and anger at his own foolish actions.
my time, people don’t get married just because they get pregnant.
You didn’t do the wrong thing! It’s perfectly natural to get
scared when you have to deal with something so important. I would
advise you to support her, of course, but don’t marry her if you
don’t love her,” Brist counseled.
I do love her! I realized that
when I realized I had left her alone to cope with being an unwed
mother, and when I think about what her father is likely to do when
he discovers her secret… My blood runs cold. How could
I have just left
her?” He sighed again, sounding on the verge of tears. “But she
doesn’t love me.”
it seems as if you have a decision to make, and I don’t see how
bringing Sarah with is going to help,” Brist said.
it will help! It’ll take about a month to get to St. Eustatius, and
having Sarah with during that month will help me to learn to think of
someone other than myself, for a change. I really feel as if it’s
the right thing to do.”

therapeutic,” Lucas stated.

I’ll…” Brist paused, she refused to give consent without asking
Sarah her opinion. In the hall, Nicholas was positive that Lucas had
just talked Brist into his bed, and for some reason, the idea made
him seethe with rage. He stalked to his room, which was just across
“I’ll ask her, but
I won’t force her if she doesn’t want to go.”
all I ask. Thank you,” Lucas said gratefully.
walked around the rest of the day as if he were dumb, deaf, and
blind. He was preoccupied with thoughts of Brist in bed with his
brother. So much so that he kept clenching his fists and grumbling;
as if he were about to punch the first person he saw.
A slave ran up to him
to report that his detail was ahead of schedule, and that they be
able to start arranging the trees on the east side of the property
into a wall in about a week. Nicholas waved him away without
bothering to comprehend what had been said. He approached his
parents, who were hugging the twins goodbye; his mother was in tears.

Raven assured her.

shake off his irritating thoughts for a few moments.

helped her mount her horse.
ran up to the departing couple, noting that this time, they had an
escort of armed slaves in addition to Morgan and Curtis – who were
both returning to port with their parents. Curtis was beginning his
captain’s training, and Morgan was getting back to his.
had the cook make up a basket of food. I was hoping that you would
deliver it to Sarah’s parents. There’s also a note from me in
there,” Brist said.
“I feel for them, but
they shot my son, and I-” David began, but Regina cut him off.
could have one of the slaves in our escort deliver it. Then it
wouldn’t be from us, and yet they would still receive some much
needed food,” she suggested.
David agreed reluctantly.

know how long I’ll be in your time, but I hope I’ll see you again
before I return to my time.”
smiled and David nodded. Then, the two were off.
The twins held on to
Nicholas’ arms until their parents were out of sight, and then he
led them back inside the house.
Raven, how would you like to go play in the garden with Sarah and
me?” Brist asked as she followed them through the door.
sounds like a lovely idea,” they responded. Nicholas excused
himself, and soon, they had joined Sarah – who was still playing
quietly in the garden.
Brist? What color is this?” She asked, holding up a rose.
Brist answered, wondering how the child had known who had entered the
like flowers; they’re so soft,” Sarah said reverently, brushing
the flower across her cheek. Brist took the rose from her and used it
to tickle her tiny little nose. She made an adorable little wrinkle
in her nose and laughed. “That tickles me!”
and the twins burst out laughing.
Nicholas went to
confront Lucas, but he found most of his other brothers were already
in the room with him. Jonathan and Richard – at 23 and 21,
respectively – were captains of their own ships, and had decided to
follow their father’s example to ship out. They were young to be
captains, but seeing as how they had completed their captain's
training – and because their father owned the shipping
company – they were more than qualified.
Gregory and Thomas
weren’t captains yet. Gregory, at 20, was still in his last stage
of captain's training; first mate of one of the Evans ships. Thomas,
at 18, had only recently been promoted to second mate, and wasn’t
due to ship out until tomorrow.
they had been discussing this very subject with Lucas, for Gregory
said: “That reminds me! I’m due to ship out tomorrow afternoon.”
rather think I’d like to spend my last night in port enjoying
myself,” Thomas remarked with a hint of innuendo.
“Good idea! Think
I’ll join you.” Gregory patted Thomas on the back.
a bad idea! Perhaps I’ll delay shoving out until tomorrow as well,”
Richard agreed with a grin.
four of us can spend the night drinking, and perhaps we’ll each
find a beautiful woman to occupy us for a time,” Jonathan
like a plan!” The first three brothers agreed.
like fun! Think I’ll join you,” Lucas said.
you are staying in bed!” They told him flatly. Nicholas smiled; the
look on Lucas’ face was comical in his dejection.
still have one good arm!” He protested.
sorry, but I have to agree. No fun for you until you’ve healed,”
even the doctor said I was fit to leave when I felt up to it!”
Lucas definitely disliked being ganged up on, but finally, he
capitulated. Besides, he still needed to get permission to bring
Sarah with him.
after their brothers had left, Lucas noticed that Nicholas seemed to
be mad at him. Thus, there was an awkward silence. Puzzled, he then
noticed that it was oppressively warm, so he asked Nicholas to open
complied and was greeted by a symphony of giggles coming from the
garden. He leaned out the window to determine the reason for the
laughter, and Lucas took advantage of his inattention by climbing out
of bed. He overheard his older brother mutter as he joined him at the

“It looks as if they
are having fun,” Lucas replied.
grunted, realized that Lucas was out of bed, and ushered him back
into it with a noise remarkably similar to that of a mother hen.
the day is over! Lucas is resting, the twins are in bed, everyone
else is gone, and Brist will
be mine!” Nicholas told himself as he entered her room. He hadn’t
bothered to knock, but it didn’t matter for she wasn’t there.
cursed her for being difficult, and then stood thinking about places
she could be. Most importantly, he knew that she wasn’t with Lucas,
for he had just come from his brother’s room. He felt a sudden
peace descend upon him as he realized her voice was drifting in
softly from the balcony.
you’re the poet in my heart. Ooo Saaarah…” Brist lapsed into
humming the rest of the Fleetwood Mac tune.
marveled at how delicious her voice sounded even when she was only
humming. Nicholas used the time to rethink his actions; now that he
thought about it, he was sure that she hadn’t agreed to bed Lucas
after all. He even decided that she was probably still a virgin, and
had almost made up his mind to leave, but was interrupted when Brist
reentered the room. She smiled at the sight of the man who looked so
much like her ex-boyfriend, and yet so much more… delectable.
finally asleep,” she whispered. She laid the child on the bed,
careful not to wake her, and pulled Nicholas out onto the balcony.
“Was there something you wanted?”
You. Nicholas had to think quickly to come up with something so that
he didn’t blurt out the truth. “I wondered if you would walk with
me. Perhaps we could try to put our differences aside and try to get
along. After all, you are my sisters’ companion, and we will
frequently be in each other's company.”
good to me; lead the way.” Brist followed him in near silence –
humming so very softly – as he walked randomly through the garden
and into a nearby grove of trees.
Nicholas couldn't think
of anything but her. He wanted her more than he'd ever wanted anyone
before. He tried several times to say something – anything! – but
nothing could compete with the thoughts of what he wanted to do to
Without any warning, he
threw his arms around her and swept her up against him. With her
diminutive body so intimately aligned with his and her exceedingly
kissable lips now in reach, Nicholas lost all control. Brist returned
his ardor with equal fervor, and pulled on his shoulders in order to
gain better leverage.
want you,” he murmured between kisses, and any objections she might
have had vanished with the realization that his kiss was far superior
to any other she had ever before experienced.
coherent observation was when he noticed the comfortable pile of
clothing on the ground. It was shortly followed by the discovery that
it was comprised of their clothing, and he couldn’t recall creating
thoughts – when they were compos mentis – all involved surprise
at the intensity of sensations she was experiencing, and bafflement
that it should be this way with a virtual stranger when she had never
experienced anything near this level with her ex – whom she had
tried to slow down – to fully explore her body – but once his
fingers discovered the moist heat of her innermost womanhood, he lost
all semblance of control and plunged inside her with reckless
abandon. Brist dug her nails into his shoulders and gasped as he
He rode her hard, grinding against her
with a passion he had never known prior to this moment. Brist quickly
learned the rhythm of his thrusts, recognizing in anticipation that
the most powerful orgasm of her life was in the making; gathering
energy like matter being sucked into a void.
was suddenly afraid of her inescapable climax. Instinctively, she
knew that if it didn’t happen soon, it would ravage her like a
hurricane, and she was unsure of her ability to survive it. She held
onto her lover as if her life depended on it, because she feared it
just might. Just when she was certain that she was about to die, she
felt his hot seed pour into her, and for some reason, this phenomenon
drove her over the edge, making her scream in a combination of fear
It took some time for
Brist to return to herself, and when she did, she was filled with
anxiety over what she had done. First off, she hadn’t needed to
renew her birth control since she was dumped, and second, she had
only had sex with one person prior to this, which had been a major
and carefully considered decision. She was not a slut who slept
heard a distinctive voice in her heard tell her not to worry, for all
was as it should be. This brought her confusion and no small amount
of concern over her sanity, and yet, it somehow reassured her. The
damage had already been done, she decided, and as wonderful as it had
been, she wanted more. She debated the wisdom of initiating another
round of sex.
her curiosity got the better of her. She had been studying techniques
in sexual self-help books in a desire to rock her man’s world (or
at least his bed), and now she had an uncontrollable urge to see if
different men reacted to the techniques differently, or if both the
men would be alike in this matter also. (Considering that they
appeared astonishingly alike, with subtle differences.) She had a
feeling that in this, like so many other things Brist had discovered
about Nicholas, he would be the same, only 10 times better. This
has to be an incredible dream,
was dozing lightly, his strength sapped. Plus, he hadn’t had any
sleep the previous night. At first, he was only mildly aware of her
exploration of his body, but she aroused him so expertly, she could
almost be likened to a high-priced courtesan.
“You could not have been a virgin,” he
remarked softly. She would have replied, but her full concentration
was on the task at hand, and he was more than pleased to be receiving
her undivided attention.
The funny thing to me is that this story was one I wrote when I was 15 or 16 and still a virgin. I had read pretty much every romance novel ever written, but had no real experience except for my vivid imagination. Therefore, I relied more on almost poetic descriptions than on graphic details. Also, much of what I used for plot and content was the parts I liked most from other stories. With my own twist, lol! Can you tell the difference? As I reread my older stuff, I cringe in embarrassment, and so editing it now is a challenge to retain the majority of the original content without diving under my chair and hiding from the embarrassment! That's probably why I don't post it more frequently even though it is a finished book :-)
