Seasons of the Satyr – Chapter 1
Hokem and Courtlan are horse ranchers living on the very edge of the sacred lands, the Eunaden. In order to please their primary purchaser, the Daman military, they arrange to have a satyr present through their breeding and foaling seasons. Unfortunately, an accident at the ranch kept them from picking up their satyr during the Spring Release, and when they finally convince the Conservatory to allow them a satyr in the summer, they aren’t given the usual humble, pious, innocent embodiment of fertility personified. Instead, they get Bramble.
Note: this story features a threesome.
