Summary: Season 5 Episode 6 - Kira is having trouble controlling her Kitsune, but Scott doesn’t know how to help with that. Therefore, he goes to the girl with seemingly all the answers - Lydia Martin.
“Okay…so it looks like my day will be seducing a Kitsune and teaching her to control her mystical electrical powers,” Lydia Martin mused as she walked down the hallway at Beacon Hills High…
* * *
EARLIER THAT DAY
“Lydia, can we talk?” Scott McCall asked as he and the redhead crossed paths in the school’s hallway.
It wasn’t like the Banshee was going to deny such a simple request from her pack’s Alpha, so she nodded her head. Of course, she couldn’t keep the skeptical look off her face, wondering why Scott was pulling her down into the little used hallway near the change rooms. After all, they smelled like stinky teen boys.
“I need your help,” he said once they were alone.
“What’s the matter? Kira not enough woman for you?” Lydia asked, her big green eyes flashing down towards his cock, while at the same time she licked her lips in anticipation.
“What? No! We’re fine in that regard,” Scott hastily answered. “But we do have a different type of problem.”
"We have several so please be more clear," Lydia said in her matter of fact tone. "I have a feeling you mean Kira being unstable in the heat of a fight."
“First with Tracy and then again with Lucas. She almost killed them,” Scott answered her correct guess.
“To be fair, they were trying to kill us,” Lydia retorted.
“But they were subdued at the time. It would have been akin to cold-blooded murder,” the Alpha werewolf replied.
“Okay. Plus, that is very unlike Kira,” the redhead agreed.
"Exactly. So we need to get her under control," Scott continued.
“We?” Lydia asked, curious as to how she fit into this.
“I’ve tried to help but I’m potentially too close to her,” the werewolf admitted.
“Well helping get a supernatural creature under control isn’t exactly my strong suit. My strengths in this group are finding dead bodies and, well, fucking,” Lydia admitted honestly.
"Yes, I'm well aware of both," he agreed, feeling a stiffening in his trousers. "Kira needs someone to help get her warrior side under control. She’s too dangerous right now to be given a sword and learn to control it through fighting…"
“...and so the other way you can arouse the same response is through sex,” Lydia finished for him. “Someone does deserve to be in AP Bio.”
“So you’ll help?” Scott asked hopefully.
Lydia tossed the idea inside her head for a few seconds, before finally replying. “Sure. Actually, it sounds like fun.”
* * *
“You’re coming to my house after school,” Lydia whispered to Kira as they sat in Biology class.
“Really? The test isn’t for another week,” the Kitsune replied when the teacher wasn’t paying attention.
“Not for studying. It’s for help with your little…full Murder Hobo problem,” the redhead replied.
Kira’s cheeks flushed with embarrassment with that comment. “Scott told you, huh?”
“He did. And I think I know a way of how to help control your emotions,” Lydia vaguely explained.
“Really? You’re sure? Because I don’t think you stand a chance if the Kitsune takes over,” the Asian teen said.
“Well, no. I’m not 100% sure but I feel good about it,” the Banshee answered. “And before we do anything, your sword won’t be within a mile of the house.”
“Good idea,” Kira nodded.
“I know you have another class before your finished for the day so just come over right after,” Lydia explained before they focused back in on the lecture about telomeres.
* * *
Making sure her room was ready, she checked it over one last time. Bed was freshly made, candlelight lit the room casting it in a sensual environment and the image in the mirror was one of perfection. Wanting to stun her Packmate, who should be arriving any second, Lydia was garbed in the finest lingerie in her closet. White stockings suspended by a matching garter belt, incredibly tiny thong highlighting her equally large booty and a white bra capped off the outfit.
"Come in Kira," the Banshee called out.
"Hey Lydia...oh my God!"
"I appreciate the speechlessness but shut the door behind you," she ordered with a playful smile.
Kira stood there gaping at Lydia's curvy body for another stunned few moments before coming back down to the situation. It wasn’t the first time she’d seen Lydia in such a state of undress, but it was a rare enough occurrence. Stepping into the bedroom, and sealing her own fate at the same time, she reached back and closed the door behind her before locking it for good measure.
"What is this? What's going on," Kira asked.
“After talking with Scott, we realized there are two ways to tap into that neural drive that exposes the Kitsune. Since engaging you in a straight up fight would be terrible for whoever you were against, we decided on the second way,” Lydia said, going to her nightstand and pulling back a cloth that was covering the contents. "...which is through sex."
If Kira was surprised by being greeted by Lydia in her finest lingerie then she was truly good and shocked now. Under the cloth were sex toys of all shapes, lengths and varieties, an arsenal befit for an entire sorority and not just for one person.
"What? How? Where?" Kira stammered before regaining some composure. “But wait. Scott and I have been having sex. A lot of sex. But it never triggers the Kitsune.”
“That’s because you and Scott have tender sex that is neither new, shocking or even a little dangerous,” Lydia explained with a wide smile on her beautiful face.
"Lydia...no," Kira said, needing little time to think it over.
"Then what? You're content to just behead teenagers in cold blood? Because that's what is going to keep happening. Scott won’t always be in the right position to stop you," Lydia retorted, getting real with the Asian teen. "Is that what you want?"
"No, obviously but..."
"But nothing," Lydia cut her off with a kiss on the lips. "Nothing but learning from you tonight."
Kira was startled enough by the busty girl's action that she didn't fend her off. Instead, after another few seconds she returned the kiss. Lydia was waiting for her acceptance, at which point she parted her lips, which the dark-haired girl mirrored. Lydia tilted her head and pushed her tongue into Kira's mouth, but only made it halfway because the slender girl had the exact same idea.
Lydia didn't want to push the girl too quickly since she knew for a fact that Kira wasn’t really into other girls. Lydia wasn’t a lesbian, but she was extremely open-minded when it came to sex. Hell, she’d even fucked a Kanima and Berserkers! However, as far as the redhead knew, Kira had only slept with Scott, but she had been seduced by Malia, as well as both Malia and herself together.
"You're a good kisser," the Asian beauty smiled.
"Only good?" Lydia asked, acting offended.
"You know what I mean," she laughed.
"Well I do other things much better," the playful redhead retorted. "Should I show you?"
Kira hesitated for a few moments, obviously snapped out of the little spell of arousal that Lydia had cast over her by kissing her with those insanely plump lips. The Banshee didn't know which direction Kira would go. She was just as likely to walk out and refuse trying to control the Kitsune as she was to allowing Lydia to help tap into her primal and chaotic force through sex.
Lydia was waiting for that response and was already in motion, disrobing her Packmate of her clothing. For Kira it was a blur as the frenzied girl stripped her sweater, shirt, shoes and pants off her in mere seconds. Left with only a bra and matching panties, Lydia this time leaned in and began kissing the slender girl before reaching around and unhooking the bra to cause Kira's small tits to become free.
"You have such adorable and suckable boobs, Kira," the busty redhead commented, mouth already going towards the globes.
"Thanks I gue...mhmm...ohhh," Kira moaned as Lydia latched around one of her nipples.
Sadly, the redhead hadn’t slept with another woman in months, which felt like an eternity for the extremely sexually active teenager. However, it felt like riding a bike again as Lydia used her lips to create an air-tight seal around the breast, sucked in all while her tongue swirled around the erect nipple. Breaking the seal with an audible pop, the Banshee rotated her head and took the next tit into her mouth, repeating the same feat and drawing yet more moans from her new lover.
“Yup. Extremely suckable,” Lydia commented, referring to her earlier comment about Kira’s breasts.
As much as Lydia enjoyed being back with a woman, she knew she couldn't take as much time as she would have liked. Her preference would have had her do some body worship of Kira, drinking in her tits that, although much smaller than her own, were very perky and cute, then move down and take her time licking and kissing her booty that felt so good as her fingers groped the firm flesh.
"Oh God," Kira moaned as Lydia slipped her hand into her panties.
Knowing that simple kissing and motorboating her tits wasn't going to draw the Kitsune’s primal force forward, Lydia got down to business. The redhead's fingers immediately wormed against Kira's folds, which were already slick in her own juices, clearly excited by the early foreplay. Her middle finger dipped into Scott’s girlfriend’s pussy as Lydia started to work it in and out, needing to loosen her up before adding her ring finger a minute later.
"Holy crap you're tight," Lydia commented between sucking at her nipple. "Like really tight. Especially for someone who's been taking Scott’s dick on the regular."
"Awwhhh...ohhhh...thanks…I think," Kira moaned as Lydia started finger-fucking her faster and deeper.
Feeling that the slender girl was sufficiently loosened, Lydia drove her two fingers in deeply before curling them in a soft claw so that her fingertips found Kira's G-spot. She gave an even bigger cry of pleasure, but that was just a preview of what was to come. Flexing her arm, Lydia began to almost violently jerk her hand upwards repeatedly causing her fingers to grind against the sensitive spot.
"Goddddddd," Kira swore as she tilted her head back with mouth gaped.
It was only for half a minute but already Lydia's forearm was burning from the massive amount of strain and effort. She could feel the familiar ache but she knew that there wasn't much more energy needed as she doubted Kira could hold out longer than 60 seconds. Bearing down, Lydia felt a bead of sweat on her forehead as she added a little more pressure, which paid dividends nearly immediately.
"Cum Kira. Cum for me," Lydia ordered.
"OOHHHHH...GOD," Kira screamed as she came in an explosion.
The Asian teen had no idea that she was a squirter, yet she felt her panties were extremely damp after her orgasm. Lydia confirmed things a moment later after fishing her hand out of her underwear she held her dripping fingers up in front of Kira's face before putting them into her own mouth and sucking Kira's fluids.
"Mhmm," Lydia moaned after sucking her fingers clean. "But we need to keep going."
"Wow...more of that is fine with me," Kira said, pulling off her wet panties and tossing them aside.
"Not quite. Come, lay down on the bed," Lydia instructed, which Kira did by laying her head on the pillows. "Even with all my fun toys, nothing will top that explosive experience and yet your primal energy didn't emerge."
"So what's next," Kira asked, watching as Lydia looked down at her collection of sex toys.
"Something more...intense," she answered, kneeling on the bed between the other girl's legs.
Grabbing a hamstring in each hand, Lydia pulled the other girl's legs upwards so that more of her fleshy ass tilted up towards her. Licking her lips at the sight, the Banshee lowered herself back down so her face was inches away from Kira's exposed bottom. Lydia instructed her friend to clutch her cheek and pull it apart, which she did with little hesitation.
"Pull my butt cheek? Like this," she asked.
"Perfect. Now I can lick your ass," Lydia smiled wide. "It's going to feel good, I promise."
The Asian teen felt Lydia add her own small hands to her bottom and helped pull apart her bum cheeks enough to expose her asshole. She watched the predatory smile and laser focus on the redhead's face before Kira felt a wet tongue place a long, slow lick to her crack. Lydia made sure to leave a good amount of spit behind, before she repeated the move using her broad tongue to lick directly over the center of her tightest of holes.
"Yup, that's my asshole," Kira stammered.
Lydia smiled at her friend's cute comment before focusing back on the task at hand. She made sure to give her best rimming since Kira clearly lacked much experience when it came to backdoor loving so she stayed gentle and non-threatening by repeatedly licking over her backdoor with the odd venture down to her pussy to change things up.
"Feels good, doesn't it," Lydia asked with a smug voice, reaching over to the nearby bedstand and pulling a toy from the collection.
"Yeah actually," Kira agreed, nodding her head as well.
As much fun as cleaning the girl's asshole with her tongue was, Lydia had more motivations than a benign rimjob. Since her surface and entrance of Kira's backdoor was so well lubricated with her spit, the redhead made sure to be even safer by licking her middle finger well before dipping her slender finger into her friend's backdoor.
"Oh wow," Kira moaned.
The red-haired bisexual used her tongue back in Kira's pussy to relax her further as she slowly yet confidently moved half her digit in and out of her ass. After a few moments, Lydia felt she was ready for even more and tested that out by going past the second knuckle and surprised both of them when her hand hit Kira’s bubbly cheeks with the entire digit disappearing.
“Mmmm,” Kira moaned in appreciation.
However, Lydia had little hope that simply fingerbanging the girl's asshole would be enough to make the chaotic energy within Kira come out. Which is why she had clutched in her fist a metallic toy that looked like a small bonnet pepper. It was only 2 inches long, with one end tapered to a blunt point before expanding out to roughly 1 inch in width. From there it narrowed again to a small cylinder that went to the other end, a jewel-encrusted base that was several inches wide to make sure the toy didn't get completely sucked into the user's backdoor.
"Relax, this can sting a little at first," Lydia warned as she prepared to pull her finger out.
Kira thought that the Banshee was going to add another finger into her ass, but she was a little surprised when Lydia pulled out before the touch of rounded metal replaced it. Lydia was smooth and gentle as ever as she used the gap from her finger pulling out to get the tip of the butt plug inside. From there all it took was steady pressure until Lydia was watching Kira's backdoor expand before engulfing her adorable toy.
"Ugh," she winced in the slightest amount of discomfort.
Lydia let it rest for a moment and allow her Packmate to get used to having her bowels held open. As if still surprised that she had something lodged in her bum, Kira's hand reached down and felt the large, flat end of the plug. Closing her fingers lightly around the edges of it, the dark-haired girl slowly spun the metal toy, noting how her rectum could feel the lubed up metal rotating painlessly inside her.
Getting a little braver since it felt so comfortable, Kira began moving it up and down. Again, no pain followed so she pulled it side to side and stimulated more of her bowels with the fairly skinny bulbous toy. Moving off of it, she allowed the redhead to have control once more, noting the look of pure arousal on Lydia's face.
"Doing so well...but the Kitsune isn't coming with just spinning in there," Lydia commented.
It was only as Lydia's fingers closed tightly around the jeweled base and began pulling it out of her ass that Kira felt the swell of discomfort return. The butt plug was only an inch wide at its widest portion but it was having a tough time being wanked free from her. However, the redhead was experienced in these matters so she leaned down and spat more saliva on the exposed metal. The added lubrication from her generous amount of spit was what was required to make the plug exit her asshole faster and without any more pain.
This time, Lydia didn't give her instructions or words of support. Once the tapered end of the toy was clear of her backdoor, she put it right back up against it. The Banshee smiled in appreciation of the less experienced girl embracing her inner slut as she pushed her backside back towards her to help the butt plug back into her ass. It was a little bit of a struggle but it went in with half the effort as the first time she performed the feat.
"Uhmm...mmhff," Kira groaned as the widest portion stretched her muscular ring before entering her rear.
Despite the sting, Kira was growing more and more into the encounter. She wouldn't say it felt perfect but it was getting better and more comfortable. It was different and unusual, just the thing Lydia thought would help expose the uncontrollable aspect of the Kitsune. The Asain beauty closed her eyes and let her hand roam up to her glistening pussy.
"Good girl. Rub that snatch," Lydia encouraged.
Kira was losing herself but it wasn't enough to make the chaotic part of her supernatural being come out...yet. While her curvy friend was using her right hand to push and pull the toy around Kira's asshole without withdrawing it completely, Lydia watched as the other girl was full out rubbing her clit.
"Oh...God," she moaned in response.
"This isn't working. She needs more," Lydia thought, mulling her options.
While Lydia continued to fuck her friend with the bulbous butt plug, she sat up higher on her knees to better scan the table. Spread on it was her wide array of sex toys that she put there for tonight, searching until her eyes fell on one that gave her a wicked idea. It wasn't the widest toy there, but her double-ended dildo was likely the longest, measuring nearly 2 feet in length.
"This might just work," Lydia said with a smile on her face that made Kira a little nervous.
"We've come this far and it's felt pretty good so I'm game," Kira replied, propping herself up on her elbows.
"Good," the horny redhead said as she lifted the lengthy toy up for Kira to see. "Because this one isn't for the faint of heart."
Kira's jaw nearly dropped out of her skull when she saw the dildo. The dark-haired girl was familiar with a regular toy, but this one was massive. Only an inch and a half thick, it had a cock-shaped tip on both ends and was fairly solid though it seemed like it had a little wiggle to it. She didn't exactly know what Lydia had in store for it though.
Watching the redhead the whole time, Kira saw her climb onto the bed after drizzling lube over both tips. Resting on her hands and knees facing away from Kira, she observed that Lydia had a matching butt plug in her own ass, nestled nicely between her bubbly cheeks. She pulled it free and Kira realized that the Banshee's butt plug was nearly double as thick as the one she used on Kira, leaving Lydia's asshole a yawning hole in its wake.
"Take a picture why don't you," Lydia smirked backwards. "Now do as I am so we have almost a foot between our bums."
Lydia was pleased that her Packmate was a good listener and willing participant. When Kira was in position, the redhead reached back and fed the toy into the slender teen’s asshole first. She went slow and stroked it into her for over a minute, allowing Kira to get used to it before she got herself ready and fed the other end into her own backdoor.
"What have I got myself into," Kira wondered as she was now connected to the only other girl by the same dildo.
"Mhmm...good. Now use your arms to rock back and forward...awwhh...back and forward," Lydia instructed, feeling the usual pleasure of having a cock-shaped object glide into her rectum.
She was a quick study and soon Kira was doing as Lydia had said, albeit slowly. Kira was so happy that she and Scott had finally started having anal sex or else tonight could have gone a lot worse. As it was, Lydia was using all of her patience to not just slam her thick ass backwards, forcing them both to swallow a good majority of the toy into both their asses. However that wouldn't help...yet.
"God it's big," Kira said, a little sheen building on her forward and along her spine. "Feels...funny too."
There was no doubt that Kira had the tighter asshole since Lydia had been getting assfucked on the regular for years. But Lydia also had much better sphincter control and mastery of what they were doing so it still meant that for every thrust backwards it was Kira taking more of the toy inside her.
"That's it. Push against me or you'll be eating this whole thing," Lydia warned. "And I would really like to have some fuck me."
For all she wanted to obey her tutor, Kira just wasn't as skilled as she needed to be. Tentative still though it wasn't exactly painful or causing her discomfort, she just wasn't forcing herself to fuck back. Sure she would rock back into Lydia but with nowhere near the convection needed to really utilize the toy properly.
"I'm...ahhh...trying," Kira wailed as she awkwardly lurched her slender body backwards.
The gentle hand wasn't working so Lydia was going to have to try a different tactic. When the horse wouldn't be led by the carrot then you drove them with the whip. Tensing her arms, the former mean girl thrust herself back into Kira with new found power. She heard her friend yelp in surprise before she crashed backward again...and again and again.
"Come on Kira," Lydia grunted, her arms aching as she forced them to thrust her body back into her Packmate. "Let the Kitsune out...then collar her."
"Ugghh...Lydia...slow," Kira urged though she knew no compassion was coming.
And then something snapped within her. It was hard to explain, as it was more like something took over her mind and body, though this time around she did remain somewhat present for it. Kira's normally brown eyes glowed orange, and if you looked at her with supernatural sight then the towering bipedal figure of a fox could be seen surrounding Kira’s body as the Kitsune took control.
Lydia immediately sensed something had changed. The first sign was that Kira's groans of being dominated stopped altogether, replaced with icy silence. Not calm, far from that actually. Her next clue was when she felt Kira's slender ass thud against her own with more intensity than ever. More power than the experienced Lydia was generating in fact.
"Aarrgghh," the Kitsune roared.
The first thrust after the bellow from the uncontrollable aspect of the Kitsune nearly sent Lydia for a tumble off the bed. The redhead just managed to stay up on all fours at the last instant though. If the Banshee thought about trying to fuck Kira back than it was quickly displaced from her mind as all Lydia could do was hold on for dear life.
THUD THUD THUD
In what was in stark contrast to minutes earlier, the double-ended dildo was now slamming deep into Lydia's bowels. With each collision between their asses, the toy slid further into the redhead while the uncontrollable Kitsune held only a quarter of the nearly 2 foot dildo in her backdoor.
"God...so much," Lydia groaned.
The Banshee, who liked to dominate women while being dominated by men, could only grunt, groan and make incomplete sentences. She had shared a toy like this with her now deceased best friend Allison Argent before, but she had never taken more than half inside her ass before. However, with supernatural strength behind her, the Kitsune had passed more than half the length inside Lydia and with each thrust back she wormed more into her.
"Yes! Take it," the Kitsune aspect screamed with a heated intensity.
Lydia was powerless to do anything but take the extreme assfucking that her new lover was doling out to her. Time after time she absorbed the mighty pounding that Kira's smaller ass smashed against her own wider but more bubbly booty. And each time the dildo went a little further inside her, Lydia felt it deeper than anything had ever been inside her previously.
"Ahhh...fight her," Lydia managed to groan out. "Seize...ugghhh...control."
Though Lydia couldn't tell since the Kitsune continued to rear her body forward before crashing it back into her, but her words had an effect. Through the rage and passion and intensity of the supernatural fox, Kira heard her friend's instructions and remembered why they were doing this. Lydia was helping her and she was rewarding her for the act of friendship by allowing the Kitsune to pound her into oblivion.
"Lydia...I'm sorry," Kira said, stopping her momentum dead.
"You did it," Lydia shrieked in excitement, though with a note of exhaustion.
"You're right," Kira commented, a wide smile growing on her face. "I totally conquered her."
Without thought, the Asian teen started rocking her body backwards and forwards. It didn't have near the same amount of force that the enraged Kitsune was using to ruthlessly fuck Lydia with, but it was also with more power than Kira herself had done earlier than that. Now with a wide grin on her own face, Lydia used her aching arms to sway back into Kira as well, matching her intensity.
"Mhmm...that's it...know the Kitsune's power is there but temper it," Lydia instructed as she started rocking a little harder.
Instantly Kira matched her in stride, picking up her own pace by the same amount as Lydia. Rather than either girl dominating the other now, instead they had found a balance. The double-ended dildo speared into both their asses in near equal length, the two lovely ladies both using the toy to actually get off now.
"Awwh...I'm controlling her," Kira celebrated, while simultaneously slipping a hand between her thighs.
"Yes...like that...mhmmm...perfect," Lydia moaned, her own hand rubbing relentlessly through her wet slit.
Both girls were in perfect rhythm with one another and it was bringing the best out of both of them. Kira was learning to handle the Kitsune’s power with a firm hand, all while her fingers skittered back and forth on her clit. Lydia was more than happy to help her gain mastery of her supernatural abilities, especially when with every rocking motion it brought her closer to her own orgasm.
"Lydia...ahhh...I'm gonna," Kira started to shout.
"I'm cumming too....aawwwhhhh....mmhhmmmm....YYEESSSS," Lydia interrupted as she came with nearly 12 inches of rubbery cock sliding into her ass repeatedly.
"Shhiittttttt," Kira swore, eyes flashing orange for an instant as she came just as hard.
Both girls shuddered and jerked and moaned some more before crashing forward, allowing the double-ended dildo to spill from their asses for the first time in quite awhile. Lydia and Kira both panted and tried to regain their breath.
"By the way, we are gonna be sore for a few days," Lydia told the girl as she rolled onto her side to better look at her friend. “Probably me more than you after you completely destroyed my butt.”
"I bet," Kira laughed before looking back behind her. “Nope. Your bum still looks adorable.”
“Awww. You know how to make a girl blush,” Lydia replied, at which point they both broke out into laughter.
