The peace that formerly reigned in Terra Nova has eroded, now little more than a memory. War ravages the continent. Disputes divide kingdoms; ideals divide families. The quest for power consumes absolutely and indiscriminately. None are immune to its allure.
Who will rise and who will fall? Only time—and ambition—will tell.
New gifted family of Lorendale added to the Families of Importance, the Decarlos!
At the beginning of February 2022 the site will experience a 5 year time jump! The IC year will jump from 822 to 827! This gives us about 8 months to prepare our characters for that jump. We plan to host very intentional planning sessions to help everyone get their plots and characters ready for this! As of this moment, one thing you should all start considering is making sure the threads your characters are in are furthering your character's stories.

As much as Hugh tried to convince himself that he hated her, and while part of him was definitely unhappy, she was still one of the best he'd ever had in bed and he simply couldn't resist her when she offered herself like this to him. Or at least he chose not to resist her. Maybe he wasn't giving himself enough credit as to how capable or not he was of turning her away.
He smirked as her legs wrapped around him, pulling him against her. He didn't resist her when she pulled him down to kiss her and he hummed against her lips and his lips parted a little as she used her tongue. He returned the kiss until she suddenly pulled away from him to tell him goodbye.
"Ya, ya, goodbye," he said, and moved to pull her back in to continue the kiss as his other hand pushed her skirt higher up her thigh.

Well, Adelaide wasn't complaining. She'd given him an out but it seemed he wanted more, and Adelaide for one could never have enough Wyndham.
She hummed a surprised tone, surprised but delighted, against Hugh's lips and added an encouraging hand to the wrist of the hand that was moving up her thigh. They could make this fast or slow, loud or quiet--the details didn't matter, Adelaide was here for the ride.
Her other hand moved to grope at his butt. All the brothers had nice, round little butts, didn't they? She appreciated them. Yes she did.

If Hugh had any idea that she had been with one of his brothers, even one of them, let alone many of them, then he might have a little more motivation to stop what he was doing right now. Maybe. Maybe he wouldn't care. After all, in moments like this he was far more motivated by what was between his legs than by what was between his ears.
Hugh was not in a soft mood. In fact, in all of their interactions (which were already too many) since he had found out she was gifted they had never had any 'soft' interactions. Not that soft was their go-to but there had been many times it had happened. Not now. Now it was purely, one-hundred percent for the lust of it, or at least that was what Hugh was telling himself. There was always a chance it was a delusion. Maybe. Who cared?
She was nothing but encouraging so he didn't hold back. He pushed her skirt as high as it would go on her leg before moving his hand beneath the fabric to touch her sensually. His teeth nipped at her lip before his tongue replaced his teeth and he encouraged her to part her lips for him. She had always been a great kisser.

Adelaide was self-indulgent, careless when it came to the feelings of others, always elevating her own pleasure and experiences first. That was why she didn't try to stop Hugh. She didn't care if he thought this was more than she did, or if the simple act would hurt the heart of another--either for Hugh or for her. The simple fact of the matter was that right now she wanted him, and so she would have him.
It seemed Hugh was like her in that way. Here he'd come to her office to tell her about his intention to go to Nevermere to potentially find a wife...and he was treating Adelaide like one for a few minutes before he departed. She should have been insulted, but instead she was appreciative of his lips, his teeth, and those fingers.
She would do what he wanted. Part her lips for his tongue. Gasp and moan in encouragement. Even slip her own hand into his pants to return the play. Wherever this went, it would be up to Hugh, and Adelaide would be along for the ride.

Adelaide fueled Hugh's selfish nature, she always had. Even before finding out that she was gifted he had indulged in her in ways that weren't acceptable for a couple that wasn't married. He only ever started to feel regret about their encounters after he found out she was gifted.
This was the last time.
He told himself this every time though and it had yet to happen. But if he was lucky then he'd be finding a wife in Nevermere and then surely he'd stop. Right?
He fully enjoyed himself with her. He worked to bring her to finish with his fingers, or until she faked it, before he had his way with her. He wasn't especially gentle. He rarely was with her. Their interactions had never been particularly 'loving', instead they were full of lust and passion and desire. He didn't pull out in time, he didn't even try. They had been lucky in the past. It was his one last hurrah after all, or so he said to himself, he might as well enjoy it to the fullest.
He stepped away from her, pulling up his pants. "That was the last time," he said to her. He'd said that before.

Adelaide definitely faked with his fingers so that he'd stop and get to the real deal. She'd always been a sausage girl. She finished in tandem with Hugh, arching her back, tipping back her head, and gasping through a wide, opened mouth.
He always stepped away so quickly. She would have preferred to slump forward against him, perhaps rest her head on his shoulder like they used to. Before he found out she was gifted.
The duchess remained where she was seated on the edge of the desk, ignoring what was pooling just under her, eyes fixed on Hugh, a casual smile on her lips.
"The last time." She agreed, knowing it wouldn't be. Not if she had anything to say about it--which she did.

In true Hugh fashion, at least since discovering her secret, he felt a bit of disappointment in himself afterwards. Once more she had won, once more he hadn’t been able to resist her and had given in to his baser instincts. It had been so good though. Damn her.
He nodded when she confirmed it was the last time. He made a half step towards the door before he changed his mind. He stepped towards her and moved to plant a deep, lust kiss against her lips if she let him before speaking, “Goodbye, Adelaide,” he said before moving to leave.

Adelaide watched him go. Well, almost go. He turned back towards her, and despite herself she felt her calming heart quicken, just for a kick. Couldn't get enough, could he? Well, as it turned out, she welcomed more.
The duchess' hand was reaching as he approached, closing around his neckline, encouraging him towards her for the kiss. It was shorter than she would have preferred, and had her lips parted, a pant escaping her, as he turned to leave.
"Goodbye." She murmured, watching until he was gone.
