Chapter 1: Hidden In The Tree Line
It was the worst day in existence for one Sansa Stark, the daughter of Eddard - or Ned as his friends called him - and Catelyn Stark. She stormed up the long dark wooden stairs and into her bedroom, closing the door softly behind her; showing her anger would only get her a lecture. The fifteen year old with bold red hair had just been told she was to marry Joffrey Baratheon when she was eighteen, an arranged marriage? Who even did that in the modern world? They'd grown up together, constantly forced to be around one another since they were the same age and their fathers were friends. Sansa had liked him at first, he was handsome with big blue eyes. However as they had gotten older she'd discovered the true Joffrey, he was vile and cruel, lacking in a moral compass or conscience; Jiminy Cricket had taken one look at the blonde and backed away as quickly as possible. Joffrey Baratheon was a monster ! At age twelve just hadn't been able to keep the act of being a sweet boy up any longer his evil intent had seeped through his mask and turned everything red, Sansa had hated him ever since but she'd never been able to make her parents understand that; he kept the act up when with them. Now all she got was kisses and flowers for Joffrey's harsh words, for the slaps and punches, for the hate-filled threats, for the pain that never left a bruise; he never left a mark. That was just what he did to her, she knew there were others, others that suffered at his hand while he laughed. She was scared to say anything to her parents again, partly because of the consequences the blonde bastard would inflict upon her but mainly because of the look of disappointment she'd receive from her mother.
Sansa knew something was seriously wrong with Joffrey, she needed to leave him, well, she'd never actually agreed to date him it was just sort of decided by the blonde monster, but her parents seemed so happy for her and Cersei liked knowing Joffrey had a play thing. Bitch! Sansa had always been the good girl, the one who didn't get called to the principles office, the one who got an A in every class. Arya was the troublesome daughter not Sansa, she did all her homework and the after school clubs her Mother had all but forced on her.
Sansa collapsed on her pink bed: Gods I hate pink . No one seemed to notice just how unhappy the fifteen year old was, she felt trapped , her azure eyes cast over the room looking at the things that really made her smile; the gifts. She'd gotten a gift every birthday and Christmas from some unknown person since her tenth birthday, because she'd grown up supposedly deeply in love with Joffrey everyone assumed they were from him, special gifts that were some kind of tradition they never spoke about but Sansa knew the truth. Joffrey wasn't anywhere near thoughtful enough to send her the gifts, they were beautiful and tailored to her tastes, someone had put a lot of thought into them. T hey certainly hadn't come from the spiteful and self-absorbed blonde. In all honesty Sansa had no idea where they came from, who they came from and she didn't much care. These presents twice a year made her happy, something she didn't experience all that often, so she'd let her family believe it was Joffrey because it avoided questions of who really sent them.
Maybe she should have been worried or at least a bit concerned about who sent them but it was the mystery she liked. Her favourite was perched on her night table and had been since Sansa's twelfth birthday, it was a Fabergé Carousel and far more expensive than anything else in her room. The expense of it wasn't the reason Sansa adored it though, its base was a little bigger than the size of her palm and was about a foot high . The carousel was white with gold detailing that she had no doubt was actual gold, she didn't deserve such a gift but Sansa did appreciate it greatly. There were four gold en horses each with a different colored saddle and reins encrusted in little stones; red, blue, green and clear. It didn't take a genius to figure out what the stones were and Sansa guarded it with her life, even Arya behaved herself around the Fabergé Carousel; surprisingly. It was like something only a Princess would have with its delicate metal work that looked like soft gold fabric draped around the edge.
There was another gift she adored, a necklace that she kept around her neck at all times; her very first give which had been received at the tender ago of ten. The silver colored chain held a pendant in the shape of a small letter 'S' with a tiny diamond in it, as a child she'd thought it was just a bit of pretty costume jewellery however, on a whim the previous year she'd gone to a jewellery store to find it was in fact a diamond and it wasn't silver but platinum, money was clearly no object to whomever sent her the presents and it made Sansa feel special. Such simplicity but highly effective, exactly what Sansa liked from clothing or jewellery.
Maybe the fact that her parents thought it was from Joffrey and Sansa had worn it every day since she was ten was the reason they were all but forcing her to marry him. Sansa was fifteen, a virgin and hated the blonde brat with a passion, how could they promise her to him? When you're old enough of course, her father had said, he didn't seem as on board with the idea as her mother . It wasn't the seventeen hundreds, but everyone seemed so happy for Sansa and she didn't want to upset them. That was part of Sansa's problem, she always ended up going along with things because it made her family happy rather than taking a stand and just telling them what she wanted.
Sometimes she thought about running away, just vanishing into the night, not even leaving a note. No more straight As, no more mind-numbing and spirit crushing extra curricular activities on a daily basis, no more overbearing parents, no more religion, no more Sunday school and best of all no more Joffrey- fucking -Baratheon. Where would she go though? That was where her plan came crashing down around her, Aunt Lysa was crazy as fuck with a n out of control son, Uncle Edmure had just had a new baby and didn't seem to like Sansa all that much; they'd both tell her mother anyway so there was no point. Ned's family was dead, and Jeyne Poole would be the first person they went to looking for her; Sansa had nowhere to go.
Sansa sighed, deep and exasperated. Tomorrow was another day of exactly the same as the one before save for the fact she had a history test.
“What fun.” She breathed before standing up and going to her large window to the right of her annoyingly pink bed.
Looking through the huge pane of glass she could see the woods that surrounded her home, it had always made her feel safe though she had no idea why. Maybe that was where her guardian angel dwelled. The redhead said nor thought anything as she stared out into the darkness of night, everything lay silent and quiet except for the sound of Arya's radio in the next room but Sansa tuned that out; a new day was coming.
Meanwhile out in the far off tree line stood a man gazing through his binoculars to see the young redhead. Petyr Baelish, raven hair greying at the temples perfectly combed and a neat goatee coating his ever so slightly tanned face, he wasn't an overly tall man but the power and authority that resonated from him made up for that in abundance. He wore a charcoal suit with a matching tie and plum shirt, he didn't often wear a tie which explained why it had been pulled loose and the top few buttons of his shirt were open. Over the top was a black hoodie helping him to blend even further into the dark woodland, he knew no one could see him from his hiding spot amongst nature but he liked to be cautious. His usual mockingbird pin attached to his lapel glinting slightly in the moonlight. Stormy eyes watched Sansa via the binoculars, she was so beautiful. A Goddess. Fire red hair hung loosely around her milk white face as though it were a cloak while she fingered the necklace he'd given her so long ago. Petyr liked that, it was as though he was always with her, resting at the crevice of her breasts. When he looked at Sansa everything slowed and his mind stopped for a time just letting him bask in her perfect beauty rather than working like he normally did. Sansa Stark gave him peace. His beautiful little girl. Petyr had no idea how long he stood there but it was long enough that he needed to return to work, the man with eyes the color of moss didn't want to leave her though, never did, especially on the days she looked sad. Something had upset her he could see it, Petyr would find out what had caused it though and if there was something he could do to fix it he would; Petyr would do anything to make his little girl happy. His Sweetling. Oh how he wanted to hold her in his arms again.
Petyr sat in his penthouse on the large black leather couch that stood in the centre of the open plan room. To his left stood the kitchen with black marble counter tops and breakfast bar tucked under the catwalk, ahead of him was the large wall mounted television and stairs that led off to his bedroom s , Petyr's right found a two-story wall to wall window that let him look down over the city. Behind him was the balcony with an equally stunning view b ut he wasn't interested in any of that, Baelish's full attention was firmly locked on the photograph of Sansa Stark in his hand , his beautiful girl. Every Christmas or birthday Petyr would take a picture of her, a gift to himself; it would have been cheep if he did it every day. The dark-haired man didn't edit them into photographs together or have a collage of her on his bedroom wall, that was just strange, even to him. He was not a stalker, or at least in his head he wasn't; stalkers usually didn't go unnoticed for almost six years. Petyr liked to think of himself more as a guardian angel or a secret protector to the most beautiful thing in creation. The hand not gripping the photograph of Sansa brought a cut crystal tumbler glass up to his lips so he could take a sip of aged whiskey, what does she taste like? He wondered.
In the newest image Sansa had her hair neatly braided over her right shoulder and w ore a floral dress that came down to just above her knee paired with a little black leather jacket. The necklace he'd given her hung around her neck as usual and Petyr knew Cat e lyn would never approve of the outfit, you're dressed like Jezebel , he expected she would have said. Oh his sweet little girl could be naughty when she wanted to be, he liked that.
Petyr set the glass down and finally let his hand slip to cup himself through his pants, he wanted to touch her, kiss her, taste her. The sound of his belt opening echoed around the room bouncing off the wall s but the dark-haired man was deaf to it as he took himself in hand. He imagined the stunning on her knees for him, hot wet mouth working his hard length. She was perfect, delicate and careful but clearly inexperienced just like he knew she would be. Petyr imagined slipping his hand into her red hair, letting his fingers scrape against her scalp and their eyes locked while she sucked him. He let his mind fill with thoughts of touching the back of her throat and feeling the vibration when she hummed around him; her little floral dress clinging to her body in all the right places. Petyr's hand moved faster up and down his length imagining her tongue swirling around the head until he couldn't take it any more and came, hard. White erupted behind his eyes with Sansa's name on his lips.
Gods he wanted her.
Chapter 2: Please Drive
It was one -thirty-nine in the morning when Sansa fled the house, no one heard her, never did. Leaving the house was a common occurrence of late, she felt suffocated at home and vanishing into the cold night once everyone had gone to bed was the best way of dealing with that. The bottle of red wine that hung loosely from one hand was just to aid in her relaxation, her parents would never notice it was gone; they hadn't even let Robb have a glass with dinner until long after he'd finished college. They were so overprotective, well her mother was anyway, and it was beginning to crush the redhead, yes she wasn't legally an adult but she wasn't a child either, Sansa could think for herself despite what her mother said.
The dark night air was freeing and helped to calm her mind, Sansa had always been a night person at heart. There was a cold scent to the air the smell of grass left over from the park having been mowed that morning, it was fresh and relaxing; just what she needed. Soon enough the swing sets came into view and and Sansa sat herself down the second she was close enough, the moon hung high and silvery in the sky, perfect for the wolves to howl at. The place was deserted just as anyone would suspect at such a hour but there was the occasional car that drove passed, they were few and far between but they were there.
She wasn't best dressed for the cold dead of night what with her daisy dukes and peach tank top but it was the only time she could dress with some skin on show, the rest of the time it was skirts down to her ankles or slacks that made her look like a blob rather than revealing she actually had a few curves. Her parents, mainly her mother, were far too conservative; no make-up, no shorts or skirts above mid calf, no tattoos, no piercings beyond ears, no rock music, no movies or television that wasn't in some way to do with God, no video games, no smoking, no swearing, no skipping church or Sunday school, no sex, no alcohol, no parties. Okay most fifteen year olds were excluded from the last few but Sansa felt smothered and she knew Arya felt the same.
Petyr watched from his car, she wouldn't be able to see him but he could clearly see her, green -grey eyes scanned over her pale thighs as she drank the wine, Sansa didn't drink to get drunk but because she wasn't supposed to, anyone could see that. Baelish could read his little girl better than a book.
“ Naughty little girl.” He grinned.
Baelish decided there and then that he'd get her a bottle of champagne for her sixteenth birthday, it was amusing to think of Catelyn's reaction; she'd never been able to take a joke. Petyr had spent a long time pranking her as a child with the aid of Lysa, that crazy bitch would have done anything he asked of her; still would. He'd love d Catelyn when they were young but now Sansa was his world. She was so much more beautiful than her mother.
Long ago Catelyn had invited him to a barbecue the Stark's had been putting on for the church, why the hell he'd been invited he had no idea, Lysa and Edmure had been there too so he'd assumed it was some kind of family reunion as well. He'd only gone because he'd missed Catelyn, then he'd seen little ten year old Sansa, bold red hair and pale skin; she was perfect in every way imaginable. He'd found her sat at the top of the stairs when he'd left the bathroom, he was going to just walk passed her but when he saw she was crying something inside him just made him want to take care of her and had ever since. Are you alright? He'd asked, Petyr remembered the way she'd jumped with shock. Yes sir. She'd answered quickly but he wasn't stupid, he'd known just how miserable she was and Petyr could empathise, as a child he'd not had much choice in anything either and after living with the Tully family as a child meant he understood exactly the crushing weight Sansa was under. He had asked her about what had upset her and she'd started to mumbled something about her mother not letting her be friends with some one because they were not good for her when Catelyn had appeared and all but dragged her daughter away from him. Ever since Petyr had been obsessed with the girl, not that he would ever use that word, yes he watched her on a daily basis but Petyr wasn't planning on kidnapping her and raping her; he just want to be near Sansa.
The older man stared at her from his car – an Aston Martin DB5, classic and beloved – as she finished the last of the wine and went back and forth on the swing set for a while, eventually though Sansa stood, discarded the empty bottle and made her way home. Petyr followed of course, couldn't have anyone try to hurt his girl. It was only when she vanished inside the house that Petyr headed home. His Sweetling was safe.
The sun was high in the sky with out a cloud anywhere to be seen and outside Sansa could hear another class running track, all in all it was a reasonably peaceful day. She sat in her English class staring down at the text before her and was actually content, Sansa enjoyed English because the teacher generally left her alone. The down side was that Joffrey insisted on sitting next to her and constantly yapping on about how perfect he was, she knew he was going to be a nightmare after school, that was why she tried to enjoy the day. Pretty much everyone in the room had laughed at him for not being able to read the text they were studying out loud, Joffrey wasn't a reader so much so that he would take her books and destroy them if he saw her with one.
The blonde was nothing like Sansa's mystery gift giver who had given her a first edition of Jane Eyre for her thirteenth birthday, she'd treasured it ever since. At the time all her parents had said was oh how sweet of Joffrey. If Sansa ever told anyone about the presents they'd tell her to bin the lot and go running to the police but she would never do that, whoever they came from wanted to make her happy, every single one of those presents made her smile so why should she be afraid of who sent them, they'd never come near her, never hurt her. The mystery person was a better friend than anyone she'd ever known and Sansa would keep them a hidden, someone only she knew about. A secret that was all Sansa's.
The stunning redhead stayed quiet for most of the class, only answering two questions, one that Missus Mordane had asked her and one that no one seemed to know the answer to. Everything else was just book work and Joffrey copied off her as usual; Sansa did her best to ignore him.
After English only Geography was left for the day which Joffrey was normally quiet in because he was far too busy lusting over their teacher; Sansa could have some peace. They were studying Dorne and Sansa hoped one day she could go, if her parents and Joffrey got there way though she'd never leave the house. Dorne was a whole world away and called to the redhead, it was one of the places she'd thought of running away to but of course money was needed for that and Sansa had none. Only a miracle could save her from marring Joffrey now.
When Geography class was over and since it was the one day of the week that Sansa didn't have some stupid extra curricular club she'd hoped to escape her blonde fiancé and maybe go to the park with Jeyne, that was never to happen though. As they walked out the main gated Joffrey grabbed at her, half a second later the heavens opened and sheets of rain came tumbling down like some kind of Shakespearian play, the fifteen year old was drenched through in an instant which only seemed to spur Joffrey on. His hands gripped her hips and slid down to cup her backside then back up to her breasts, she didn't want this.
“Stop struggling! You're mine, always will be and I'll do as I want with my little bitch.” His voice was filled with venom. “It's my sixteenth party next week and you're stupid parents will let you come because it's with me, and when everyone is having fun I'm finally going to fuck that pretty little cunt of yours.”
Sansa's heart thudded in her chest and her breathing bordered on hyperventilating, when he leaned in to kiss her something in Sansa snapped and she found the strength to push him way from her into a puddle before bolting away to the nearest car and jumping in. She'd expected a mother with young children – which when she though about it later would seem silly since the car was a classic Aston Martin – but instead she got a lone man who looked rather shocked to see her.
“Please drive.” She half begged, half demanded. “Please?”
He couldn't say no to his little girl.
Chapter 3: Petyr
Petyr's mind beamed with happiness as he drove away from the school, for a few moments he'd stared at her thinking he'd finally lost it and gone insane but no, the stunning redhead he had adored for almost six years was actually sat in his car dripping wet; he could just see her pale green bra through her shirt and his inner beast growled . All he wanted to do was pull over and ravage her, kiss her all over and bite down on her neck marking her as his, he grinned smugly to himself ; imagine Catelyn's face. Baelish knew that when Sansa had dove in to his car she meant drive her out of sight or a few blocks away, Petyr didn't do that though. Instead, Sansa's stalker turned the car towards his home while rain thrashed down on the windshield, Sansa kept her head down at her feet and remained silent as he drove, the faint scent of cigarette smoke filled the car . Cold water drip, drip, dripped from her perfect fiery locks down onto his car's hand finished interior but the adult couldn't have cared less, his girl could have started a fire in his back seat while singing about aliens and he would have done nothing more than listen with intent happiness. She was so close, all he had to do was reach out and touch her, but he didn't. Petyr knew better.
Rain only seemed to come down harder as they neared his home, the sky was almost black thanks to the thick clouds. The weather was all but ignored. Sansa never spoke, not once, not even when he drove into the underground parking lot for his club and parked. Has she even noticed where I've taken her? He wondered. With the engine silent Petyr stepped out of the car with a come on and was happy when she simply did as he said, she'd clearly been lost in her own thoughts. The two walked over to Petyr's private elevator and the world seemed to come back to Sansa, dragging her bag along with her , blue eyes zoomed around the parking lot and then over to the man she was following. Did I really get into a strangers car and ask him to take me anywhere Joffrey wasn't? This was dangerous but she was dripping wet and not sure where she was. The stranger wasn't overly tall, in fact they were probably the same height , his hair was perfectly combed and greying at the temples which made him look distinguished rather than old. The suit he wore, black with matching shirt, looked tailored and Sansa didn't doubt that it was, from the Aston Martin he drove it wasn't hard to see this stranger had money. Cerulean orbs watched as the stranger reached for the number panel beside the elevator and punched in the code.
Sansa didn't mean to look but she did anyway, underneath the numbers were letters just like any other security pad , those numbers have to mean something to him because his elevator code is not my fucking name. Coincidence, had to be. There was a ping that both signalled the elevators arrival and pulled the teenager from her thoughts; was she really going to go into this strange man's home? When the doors rolled open the stranger stepped aside to let her go first which she did, yes, it seemed she was going into the strangers home. Looking around the elevator as it rose Sansa's eyes found The Mockingbird in silver above the doors and a bird logo in the middle of each mirrored wall, she knew that logo.
“You live above The Mockingbird club?” She asked, her voice was a little shaky but that was from the cold rain that clung to her rather than fear.
“I do, yes.” He responded, his voice was deep and dominant, something inside of Sansa made her want to lean closer. “I own the place.”
“I've always wanted to go. A friend of mine's brother practically lives in there and he's always telling her how fun it is, won't say what he does in there though.”
Hmm, probably fucking one of my girls... or boys , Petyr thought to himself while watching a stray drop of rain roll down her neck and vanish under her soaked shirt.
“Law says I can't let you in but what they don't know won't hurt them.” He grinned and Sansa matched it softly. “Maybe later I'll show you around since we're closed.”
Gods he needed her to stay, Petyr wasn't a religious man but for his darling little girl to stay he'd pray to anyone who'd listen. The New Gods, the Old, that weird faceless god, anyone .
“I'd just like to be dry.”
It was beginning to confuse Sansa as to why she trusted this man, this stranger, he could be anyone and yet she stayed, made no attempt to go home. Why? Sansa knew but she couldn't quite admit it to herself, he showed her respect and wasn't treating her like a child, that was deeply refreshing. That bit she could admit, what she couldn't admit was that she didn't want to leave, his voice did something to her and those stormy green eyes just made her feel safe.
Meanwhile Baelish just stood there on the ride up, he could smell the coconut from her shampoo, sweet and perfect in every way, all Petyr wanted to do was grab hold of her and never let Sansa go; she was so close to being his. Sansa was his little girl, no one else's. When Joffrey had attacked her in the rain Petyr had dug his nails into his steering wheel to the point that they almost snapped just to keep from launching out the car and killing him, he'd not had to worry though, his little girl had found all that bravery he knew she had deep down and fought him off; he was so proud of her. Maybe Sansa knew she was his, could sense who she belonged to deep down in her soul. Petyr couldn't give the game away though, couldn't scare his little Sweetling and so he kept his distance. First thing was to get her warm and dry, poor thing was dripping wet, he nearly moaned when his mind took him to other meanings. I want you so badly, Sweetling! If he'd been confined one more second in that elevator he'd have crashed his lips to hers but thankfully the elevator pinged again and the silver doors rolled open.
Sansa stepped out in awe, his home was beautiful, open plan and a mix of rich silver, purple and black. There was a large modern kitchen to her left made of light marble floors and black counter tops, a sleek black grand piano stood opposite the elevator doors that then led on to a glamorous balcony, it must have been wonderful to just sit out there relaxing when the sun was shining. The whole wall in front of her as Sansa was lead into the living room she quickly noticed a glass wall opposite the staircase that had the most beautiful view of the city she'd ever seen, even in the harsh rain. The leather L shaped couch looked soft and perfect to fall asleep on and she'd never seen a television as big as the one mounted to the wall, there were stairs that wandered off to a second floor and the redhead found herself just wanting to explore, she couldn't though.
“You're home is beautiful.” She told him honestly and was pleased to see a little half smile on his lips.
“Thank you. Come on.” He swelled with pride, Sansa should have only ever been surrounded by beauty.
Petyr gestured for the redhead to follow him upstairs – seemed Sansa would get that tour she wanted – feet came to a halt outside a dark door at the end of the hall, he pushed the door open while Sansa shuffled her basic yellow bag over her shoulder.
“The bathroom. Take a shower and get warm, there's a robe on the door you can put on.” His voice remained level and gave nothing away.
“Thank you, you're very kind.” The teenager took two or three steps into the bathroom before stopping and turning back to the stranger. “What's your name? I just realised I haven’t asked.”
“Petyr.” He'd been wondering how long it would take for her to ask.
“I'm Sansa Stark. It's nice to meet you, Petyr.”
With that she was in the bathroom with the door separating them. Oh it certainly is, Little One. Not the first time though. Petyr called through the door.
“Leave your wet clothes outside the door, I'll wash them for you.”
He heard a muffled affirmative through the heavy wood door before walking off to his own bedroom, he'd wanted to stand there and wait but knew she'd think that odd plus he really wanted out of his own wet clothes, they were only damp compared to Sansa's but still he needed to change. The walls were a dark grey almost black with one wall solid glass just like downstairs, with the flick of a switch the window was covered over by a large black curtain. Cherry red wood covered the floor, the bed had been made up with plum colored sheets that matched the padded headboard feature wall above it.
It didn't take him long to shed off the offending fabric and cast it into his hamper, Petyr slipped on another pair of black slacks and a navy polo shirt that showed off his toned arms , he didn't bother with shoes or socks. Sansa was in his house. Naked in his shower. That was all he wanted, for her to be there with him, to keep her and take care of her. Petyr fell down onto his bed imagining the hot water cascading over Sansa's supple white flesh, wet nipples standing to attention begging to be touched. Moss colored eyes snapped open when his body twitched with interest, he couldn't indulge, not while Sansa could hear him. Instead Petyr pushed himself up and his arousal down before going to the bathroom door, just as he'd requested her sodden clothing lay neatly folded on a towel in an attempt to avoid soaking the floor; such a thoughtful little girl. Without a word he gathered them all up and went downstairs to his small laundry room and put them in the wash, not before breathing in the scent of her though, she naturally smelt like flowers and winter, like a cherry tree in bloom covered with soft white snow.
A short while later Sansa emerged from the bathroom wrapped in a black robe, his black robe, oh that made him growl possessively, it was too big for her in the shoulders but not so bad that she looked like she'd vanish into the soft fabric. Her fiery hair hung damp around her shoulders and Petyr longed to run his fingers through the beautiful locks, Sansa yawned.
“Why don't you lay down for a while?” He asked partly because she was tired and partly to make her stay longer. “I'll wake you when your clothes are dry.”
“That's really kind, but I don't want to be more of a bother than I already have been.” She smiled softly.
“You can't leave until they're dry anyway and you look tired.” Petyr reasoned.
She can't leave, not yet, not ever. He'd debated just kidnapping her before but had decided against the idea, he wanted Sansa to stay with him freely rather than keeping her locked up where she was scared.
“Maybe you're right.”
“I usually am.” He smirked. “The couch is comfy enough.”
Sansa smiled and thanked him before going over to the black leather couch and settling down, it didn't take her long to settle her pretty head down on a soft white pillow and fall into the realm of dreams, he'd thought it would take a while what with being half naked in the home of a man she'd only just met and who was more than twice her age; she proved him wrong though. As soon Sansa's breathing had levelled out and Petyr was sure she was asleep he walked silently to the back of his couch and just watched her chest rise and fall, she was the most beautiful and perfect thing in creation, too good for Joffrey Baratheon and his goons. She was the smartest person in her family but no one ever saw it, Petyr did, he saw it, saw that she could play the game if someone only taught her how, saw that the future Catelyn had planned out for her would only make his little girl miserable. Just because Sansa was the spitting image of her mother didn't make them the same person.
After a while Sansa wriggled in her slumber and turned over letting the robe fall open just enough to see her pink nipples, a hand desperately wanted to reach out to cup her soft supple breast, just the idea almost made him moaned. If he touched her he'd want more and Petyr couldn't risk that, not for a minor moment of sexual gratification, he wanted Sansa to give herself to him willingly rather than stealing touches. Petyr pulled on the robe and gave the sleeping beauty back her dignity, he'd waited five years and seven months to see Sansa in his home and Petyr was going to bask in it, for hours he just sat and watched the sweet little girl only getting up to move her clean clothes to the dryer.
The sun had long since gone down and Sansa's sleeping face had been bathed in moonlight, she was beautiful like a princess cut from marble. Petyr told her that he'd wake her but he couldn't bring himself to do so, how could he put an end to such a goddess snoozing in the moonlight?
That was how Petyr fell asleep, with green-grey eyes locked on Sansa.
Chapter 4: I Shouldn't Know That
Sansa awoke to the smell of bacon spitting in a pan and bright sunlight pouring in through the large floor to ceiling window, it took her a moment to realise where she was and calm down. Though the calm didn't last long, if the sun was coming up then she'd been there all night, that forced her to bolt awake with wide eyes and utter panic. Throwing her head round in every direction she finally found Petyr with his back to her at the oven top, he wore another pair of black slacks and a grey dress shirt that clung to his lean form effortlessly; Sansa let her azure eyes gaze over him for a while until the world once again came back to her.
“Why didn't you wake me? My parents are going to kill me and I'm late for school!”
Sansa pushed herself up from the black leather couch.
“I'm sorry, I was going to wake you but I fell asleep too.” It wasn't a complete lie. He turned a little to reveal a frying pan and flashed his girl a smile before turning back. “I only woke up a short while ago but I thought you'd be hungry.”
“I need to call my parents. Christ, I'm going to get grounded for the rest of my life. Nothing new there then. I never get to do anything.” The last bit was added more as an after thought than anything else.
Sansa dove for her bag and pulled out her phone faster than she'd ever moved before, dead. Her fucking phone was dead and if Sansa didn't get back to her parents soon she would be too, her hands shook knowing her Mother would waste no time getting to yell at her; the word 'responsibility' was going to crop up more than once for damn sure.
“Do you have a landline?” She asked desperately, Petyr didn't seem overly concerned when he turned back to face her.
“No one has a landline anymore, Sweetling.” He said flatly. “Get dressed and then come eat, after I'll drive you to school. You're clothes are on the end of the couch.”
Sansa watched as Petyr tipped scrambled eggs and bacon out onto plates and set them on the breakfast bar. Baelish didn't want her to go but he'd let her if he had to.
“Okay.” Sansa relented as she pulled her folded clothes into her arms and ran off to the bathroom.
Petyr couldn't help but think about his girl slipping on that check school skirt of hers and that little green bra, she was utterly perfect. It didn't take long for Sansa to come back with her uniform in perfect order; which just made Petyr want to rip it off her all the more. He set a cup of coffee full of sugar and cream down by Sansa's place and gestured for her to sit which his girl did, the redhead took a bite and shot Petyr a smile before he turned back to get himself a cup.
“I made you scrambled eggs since you don't like fried.”
Suddenly Sansa's movements grounded to a halt, fork half way to her mouth. How does he know that? Petyr tensed, he could feel her questioning blue eyes on him.
“I'm not supposed to know that, am I?” He sighed
After what felt like an hour to Sansa Petyr finally turned round to face her, the redhead felt her heartbeat spike and her eyes filled with fear. Petyr saw it and wanted to kick himself, all he'd ever wanted to do was take care of his girl and now she was afraid of him.
“How... how do you know that?” She managed to question. He sighed again.
“The same way I know you hate pink but your parents won't let you redecorate your bedroom. That you love Gothic literature, you prefer root beer to cola, you're smarter than people give you credit for and your favourite food is lemon cakes."
“You're the one who sent the gifts.” It wasn't a question.
Clever girl Petyr thought with a hidden grin, she was far smarter than people gave her credit for.
“Yes.” He admitted. “And you like them.” Petyr gestured to elegant necklace around her neck that Sansa so often fiddled with.
“Are you going to keep me here?”
The older man was pleased to find that the initial fear had faded form her voice, braver than people think too.
“No, my little girl. I want you to stay but I won't force you, I don't want you to be miserable.”
Petyr wanted her willingly, none of this Stockholm Syndrome shit.
“Then let me go.” Her voice didn't shake and Petyr was proud of her for that.
“I'll take you to school-” She cut him off.
“No, just let me go.”
The dark-haired man with grey at his temples nodded and walked over to the elevator flashing his keycard over the sensor, it was the only way to call the elevator. Sansa grabbed her backpack and rushed inside the elevator, she was about to hit the ground button when she paused for a moment.
“Is your name even Petyr?” Sansa was sceptical.
“Yes. Goodbye for now, Sansa.”
With that the redhead slammed her and down on the button as the doors slid shut Sansa ripped the necklace from her neck and threw it at him, it hit him in the chest before falling to the floor. The impact was soft and almost unnoticeable save for the clattering noise it made when the chain hit the hardwood floor, his heart though, it felt like it had been ripped from his chest leaving a gaping hole in his chest. Had his girl rejected him or was she just angry? Was there hope? Either there was or he'd create hope where none existed, Petyr Baelish never gave up!
With Sansa gone he was left alone with two plates of uneaten breakfast, Sansa's necklace and the smell of her shampoo. That was nowhere near what he'd planned for the big reveal of who he was, Petyr planned for everything except, it seemed, for his stupid slip up. Petyr didn't make mistakes like this.
It was heading towards afternoon when Sansa got home, after knowing she was at The Mockingbird it was reasonably easy to get home, a long trip but at least she knew where she was going. As soon as Sansa shut the front door her mother launched at her.
“Sansa Stark! Where have you been?!” She screamed, red in the face. “You're father is worried sick about you, Robb and Jon have been looking for you half the night.”
S ansa thought quickly.
“I'm sorry, Mother. Jeyne and I were at Margaery's house after school to do our homework. We fell asleep, I'm sorry.”
Every word was a lie, Margaery was Joffrey's friend not Sansa'a and Jeyne had been out of town with her parents for a meal with estranged family.
“You better be Sansa Stark! You never do that again, do you understand me? Never!”
Sansa was pretty sure that all the Gods could hear her mother at this point.
“I'm sorry.” The younger woman muttered.
“You need to be more responsible Sansa.” Said her mother, voice calming but still stern. “And I don't remember giving you permission to go to Margaery's house. Take some responsibility for your actions. Now get changed and get to school, you can't miss anymore than you already have.”
Sansa charged up the stairs just to get away from her overbearing mother while Catelyn went to call off the search for her. As soon as the door was shut behind her Sansa burst into tears. The fifteen year old knew she should have told her parents about Petyr and what he'd done but they would have probably thought she was making it all up, over active imagination they'd say, needs to be more responsible. Yes, maybe going home with a random stranger had not been the wisest move but that didn't change that she was the most responsible person in her family. Arya spent her days getting into fights and hanging out with Gendry Waters who was even older than Sansa, no one ever batted an eyelid at that, Bran had constantly been climbing up things and paid the price. Robb was the golden child no matter what he did and Jon, he was the walking and talking flag of infidelity her father had made yet Sansa was the irresponsible one? She had done everything her parents wanted and yet she still wasn't good enough, Arya could get away with murder but Sansa couldn't even ware a skirt without being told to change and stop acting like a Jezebel.
Petyr had been kind and taken care of her, everything in her bedroom that she adored was from him. Why had she thrown her necklace at him? Sansa loved that necklace and felt naked without it, she hadn't thrown it out of fear, disgust or even anger, it had been shock. Shock that the one mystery person who had made her happy all her life was some kind of stalker who owned The Mockingbird club.
“Sansa! School now!” She heard her mother shout up the stairs, anger still filling her voice.
With a sigh the young redhead wiped her face and left for school, she didn't change, the uniform she wore was clean and smelt like him, why is that comforting?
Lunch had gotten around half way through when Sansa finally showed up at school, Joffrey found her in about five seconds flat at the lunch line and went straight to making stupid jokes about where she'd been and touching her. To anyone else it would have looked cute and romantic with his hands on her hips but Sansa could feel his nails digging in . ' As soon as were out of sight I'm going to give you one hell of a slap for running off', he'd told her as she ate, ' I own you and you'll do as you're told'.
Meanwhile across town The Mockingbird was getting ready for opening that evening. Petyr pressed a large hand over his breast pocket as the elevator took him down to the club, the small weight of Sansa's necklace hung there, a piece of her close to him. Instead of going to the school to watch his little girl leave Petyr went to his office and locked himself away with his work, he doubted Sansa had said anything about him, if she had Catelyn would have shown up by now. He'd leave his girl alone for a few days, didn't want to crowd her, Petyr would leave her to calm down.
When Sansa arrived home along with Arya she was sent to bed without dinner like a five-year old who'd drawn on the walls. Her sister had just laughed as the redhead walked off upstairs, she didn't mind going to her room she didn't want to talk to anyone and couldn't cope with Arya's ha ha Sansa got yelled at. The teenager fell flat on her bed and looked up at the ceiling of her hated pink bedroom, only when she remembered it wasn't there did Sansa realise her fingers were searching for the platinum chain that called her neck home. How was it that Petyr had watched her for years and kept her in his penthouse yet as soon as she got home she felt like her parents were the kidnappers?
Sansa had always been lonely, Arya all but hated her – or at least that was how it felt – and took any opportunity to tease her sister – Arya was certainly in her bitchy teen years – Robb spent most of his time working or with his girlfriend of the last four years, Talisa. Bran and Rickon spent most of their time together and it was hard to have a decent conversation with Rickon since he was so young. Sansa had more in common with Jon than the others and he was about to join the military and head up north for basic training, much to her mother's pleasure since Jon wasn't her son; not that Catelyn would ever admit that out loud. Once Jon was gone she'd basically be alone.
Sure her parents said they loved her and put a roof over her head but nothing she ever did was good enough, she never felt important, as long as Sansa got straight As and did her homework she was fine as far as her parents were concerned. However, if she didn't Sansa was throwing a tantrum; she just couldn't win. Maybe some of it was her teenage mind and all the hormones flooding her brain, but she'd always felt like this. She didn't want to go to the after school clubs or Sunday school but she didn't get much choice.
“It would be funny to see her face if I told Mother I don't believe in God.”
Sansa stripped out of her clothes and threw on her pyjamas before winding the fabergé carousel and clambering into her bed. She fell asleep to thoughts of Petyr the stalker.
Two days later when the sky was covered over by a thick cloud layer saw the return of Petyr's car, Sansa had been looking for it since she'd left his penthouse and now there it was again. Her heart quickened the second she saw Aston Martin. She and Jeyne left the school later than the other kids since she was forced to attend the math club and Jeyne actually needed to; mathematics was not that girls strong suit. Jeyne paid no attention to Petyr, he was just a guy sat in his car to her but Sansa knew better, she wasn't afraid of him though that much she knew. For a second she debated asking for her necklace but that would call forth far too many questions from Jeyne and Sansa didn't need that, the redhead didn't want to ignore him though especially when he knew she'd seen him, even flashed her a devilish grin that made her cheeks red. After a split second of thought Sansa offered him a wave as they walked passed his car, she kept eye contact with him long enough for Petyr to mouth the words hello Sweetling.
“Do you know him?” Jeyne's question pulled Sansa's mind back to her friend.
“Hmm? Oh, he's a friend of my Mother's.” If Sansa only knew how close to the truth she was. “Must be waiting for his daughter.”
The two carried on walking down the street but Sansa could still feel his eyes on her.
“What's his name? He's cute for an old guy.”
“He's not old.” Sansa insisted. “And I don't remember his name, something with a P.”
The entire time Sansa's mind was screaming at her. Lie! Lie! Lie! Thankfully Jeyne didn't question her too much on the stranger after that they just walked home, or as far as they could before Sansa was forced to turn one way and her friend the other. Since the whole not coming home incident Sansa wasn't allowed to see Jeyne or Margaery, basically Sansa wasn't allowed any friends anymore.
Sansa walked up the drive hoping she could just go upstairs take a shower and read the first edition copy of Jane Eyre Petyr had given her - it was strange to have a name and face to go with the gifts – no such luck for Sansa though. Almost the second the front door was shut behind her Sansa realised something was wrong, usually she could hear Bran and Rickon playing but instead she found utter silence which meant they were in Bran's room occupied with coloring and books, this wasn't going to be good for Sansa.
“Sansa, come in here please.” Called her mother from the family room.
I'm fucked. What have I done now? With a sigh Sansa slipped off her shoes and set her bag down in the hall, no doubt later she'd get an ear full that bordered on lamenting for leaving her school bag in the hallway but at that moment in time Sansa couldn't have cared less. She felt like she was being marched to her execution as she walked into the family room to find her Father and Mother sat on one of the beige couches, Catelyn looked far more stern than Ned as usual.
“Take a seat, Lass.” Ned said gesturing to the matching couch opposite their own.
Sansa had always gotten along better with her father than her mother, Ned made her feel like his children came first and he seemed to see that Sansa wasn't as happy with her life as she made out.
“How was school, Lass?” He asked.
“Okay. I have a mountain of homework though.”
Just get to what I'm being yelled at for, she appreciated her f ather trying to ease into the subject but her m other's scowl made his attempt useless, before Ned could say anything else Catelyn was speaking, she'd always been straight to the point.
“Sansa, due to your resent reckless behaviour we've decided...” Ned looked at his wife as though to say no you decided, which almost made the young redhead laugh. “... that you need to learn some responsibility so we're sending you to camp this year. You can pray and do the team exercises with the other children, it will be good for you and you'll have fun like the other years.”
One: I'm not a fucking child! Two: I hate that place, the counsellors constantly look at me like a piece of meat. Three: Not everyone is as obsessed with religion as you. Oh, and fuck you! None of Sansa's internal monologue came out into the open though, it would only make her stay at camp longer or force her into some kind of extra Sunday school.
“You'll be around the younger ones this year too so you can help take care of them, Arya, Bran and Rickon are going as well.” Ha, at least Arya has to suffer too. “Also I know you're still talking to that Jeyne girl, stop it. She's not good for you.” Catelyn's face relaxed a little. “You'll leave next Saturday.”
No summer vacation for me again then.
“Mother-” Catelyn cut her off.
“No, you're going.”
There was no point in complaining, Ned flashed his daughter a smile of encouragement. Sansa just had to learn to be content with being miserable.
Sansa only got more and more lonely as Saturday approached, she knew her Mother only wanted what was best for her but what was important to Catelyn wasn't to Sansa. The fifteen year old didn't want to work herself to death until Joffrey married her and she was forced to give him sons, because there was no way in hell he would want a girl. Sansa wanted to have fun, maybe fall in love rather than being shackled to that blonde Lannister bastard, once or twice she'd tried to tell her Mother about what Joffrey did to her but she'd never been believed, Joffrey never left a mark on her if he could help it so everyone thought she made it up, stories of an over-active youthful mind. The day would come when Joffrey couldn't hide his true colors from the world and everyone would see she was right, the problem was those colors would probably kill her. Eventually she just gave up.
Her father might have been a better option but he wasn't around often, he travelled for work constantly and often slept in hotels leaving Catelyn to care for their children. Ned Stark was a good man, it was just a shame he wasn't there much.
It was raining when she left school on Friday, the one blissful day free of after school clubs, the rain wasn't as bad as when she'd gotten into Petyr's car but if she didn't hurry home she'd be soaked. Speaking of Petyr, his car was parked in the out-of-the-way spot he favoured just like every other day; how did I never notice it before? Surly a becautifully cared for Aston Martin would have been something people noticed? Jeyne was in detention for something to do with her math work and Joffrey hadn't been seen all day, thank fuck for that she thought. In their absence Sansa was to walk home alone, it wasn't far and she rather liked the peace, even if it was raining. As usual Sansa passed by his car and met his eyes for a brief moment, it had become a silent greeting of sorts, a glance and then she was gone but not today. A small patch of blue caught her eyes sitting on the hood of his Aston Martin, the little box and curiosity got the better of her, she quickly looked around to make sure no one was watching her and then reached out for the tiny box. It was pretty dry still so he'd only just sat it there for her, Sansa could feel his steel-blue colored orbs watching her intently as she opened the box, her necklace, he'd given it back. The redhead couldn't help but smile, she'd felt utterly naked without the delicate chain and S pendant, thank you she mouthed and slipped it on before walking off home; she felt right now it was back not even the rain could bother her. However, there was that forced trip to camp tomorrow.
Darkness had fallen hours ago and his club was just as popular as ever, The Mockingbird was a hotbed of sex, drink and drugs. His own little den of iniquity and Petyr adored it almost as much as he did his little girl. Ros was upstairs with some kid only just old enough to get in and Olyvar was running the bar since Katrina had called in sick... again. Petyr himself stood on the long black stairs that spiralled down watching over his domain with pride, people gyrated on the dance floor while VIP's sat in their booths with his whores on their laps teasing them with little kisses. He could hardly move for club goers and Petyr smiled think ing about the night's profits, three of the tablets his staff used had been broken though, he needed to do something about the constant breakages.
Why do you, hate me so much?!?
I'm confused with every little word you say
Do you feel like a fool
I hate every little word you say
Every little word you say.
Music blasted from the speakers and made it hard for Petyr to hear himself think but he heard the person beside him speak perfectly clearly and cringed.
Great! The dark-haired man turned a little to the right to see Lysa Arryn stood by his side in a dress that should have been on someone half her age, she was high that much was obvious thanks to the dilated pupils looking up at him obsessively. Petyr sighed, how have you not overdosed and died yet? Lysa had always loved him, it was actually more like when a child had a toy and the younger sibling wanted it just so the other couldn't than love, but still that was what Lysa called it.
“Lysa.” He said with no emotion.
The redhead seemed to invent some though because less than a second later she was hanging off of him like he was a line of cocaine. His whole body was tense but Lysa didn't notice.
“Did you miss me?” She didn't wait for an answer. “I know you did, you always do.” Petyr forced down the urge to throw up when her tongue came out to lick at his jaw, there isn't enough bleach in all the world. “What do you say we go and play? I know you want me.”
Dead? Yes. For sex? No. Just as luck would have it Perryn was on his way down the stairs buttoning up his black shirt while Lysa was all but climbing onto him and he grabbed the man by the arm pulling him close enough to whisper in his ear.
“Perryn, take Lysa upstairs hop her up and fuck her for me. She'll use my name but ignore that. Once the lights are out she won't know the difference. I'll pay you extra.”
Perryn nodded. The man had dark hair just like Petyr's but there was no grey in it, they were a similar height and body build so Lysa would never notice. He turned back to aged redhead.
“Perryn is going to take you to one of the rooms and treat you to your favourite white powder. I'll be up in a minute.”
Lysa purred like a cat against his neck.
“Don't keep me waiting too long, Petyr.”
“You know I can't resist you, Lysa.”
Finally, finally, she released him and let Perryn lead her up the dark staircase out of sight, poor bastard Petyr thought but better him than me. Baelish had done that to Lysa a number of times and she'd never noticed. He had work to attend to as well but Petyr wasn't going to sit in his office and risk having to deal with the next problem Lysa Arryn caused, instead he told Oly to take charge of the floor and went upstairs to his Penthouse.
It was quiet as soon as he entered his elevator and the silence was strangely loud at the same time. Littlefinger took a deep breath of air, it was nice to breathe in something that wasn't a combination of sweat, vodka and Lysa's way too strong perfume. The elevator came to a halt and Petyr watched the silver doors slide open before stepping out and stripping off his suit jacket leaving it on the dining table. His laptop was still on the glass table just where he'd left it and after pouring himself a generous amount of single malt into a cut crystal tumbler the man with greying temples sat down and started going over the clubs accounts.
Moonlight steamed in through the wall to wall window giving the room an almost supernatural glow through the splattering of rain, Petyr didn't notice though he only looked up to reach for the whiskey bottle so he could refill his glass. All attention was drawn to the elevator door when he heard it start to move, that pulled him up out of his seat, no one should have been able to move that elevator but him. A code was needed to call it to the parking lot or the club floor and a keycard was required for the doors to open in his penthouse, a keycard that was still in his suit pocket. Petyr wasn't dumb, he knew the kind of people he worked for, the highly illegal things he moved for them. Which was why not three seconds later he'd retrieved the gun he kept hidden on the underside of his grand piano – a Colt Gold Cup – and stood face on to the door waiting.
Eventually the elevator came to a halt and the door slid open.

Chapter 6: Long Faded Memories
Eventually the elevator came to a halt and the door slid open.
He was both confused and surprised to see his little girl, especially at two o'clock in the morning. She stood there in utter silence for a moment just looking at him with those big blue eyes of hers, this was more awkward than she'd imagined.
“I didn't have your phone number or I would have called. I remembered your code, my name.” She told him softly, eyes downcast.
Clever girl, he thought. Sansa was soaking wet, he hadn't even realised it was still raining until then, and if she was that wet it meant that she'd walked all the way to his penthouse.
“Did... did you mean it... when you said you wanted me to stay with you?”
Petyr froze for a moment looking at the girl half in his elevator and set the gun down on his dining table, Sansa hadn't noticed it hanging from his side until then but she didn't flinch; he wouldn't hurt her. Had Baelish gone insane or had his little girl come back to him? Maybe his plan hadn't failed after all.
“Yes.” He breathed out the answer with a half-smile. “Yes, little girl, I want you to stay.”
“Then is there somewhere I can put my stuff?”
She gestured to the large army green duffel bag that held her measly possessions on the floor beside her, Petyr's ego beamed and a smug smile descended onto his lips. She's mine! He didn't know what had made her leave her home in the middle of the night in the pouring rain, was it because Cat still treated her like a child? Maybe it was as simple as Petyr was her only option for somewhere to go. Baelish didn't speak he just walked straight over to his little girl and cupped her face, pulling her towards him and smashing their lips together, she tasted sweet like sugar and strawberries and Petyr thought he could become addicted rather quickly. Sansa gasped in sudden shock before relaxing and letting her eyes fall shut giving the older man the perfect opportunity to slip his tongue past her lips and map her mouth, every second was pure ecstasy, Sansa was finally his and she'd come willingly.
Meanwhile Sansa got lost in the kiss, she'd never experienced anything like the touch of Petyr's soft lips, sure Joffrey had kissed her before but it was nothing like what she felt from the dark-haired man with grey at the temples. He tasted like mint and he had her moaning in seconds. His palms were warm on her skin and calloused while his facial hair tickled her face a little but Sansa didn't pull away, the kiss was so new and yet so utterly magical. Only when their lungs screamed out for air did he release his girl, his eyes never left her own though; stormy green locked with azure.
“You're so perfect, my little girl.”
His voice was deep and dominant as a large hand ran through her long red hair, she could feel his breath on her rain chilled skin. Petyr pressed a lighter kiss to her pink lips.
“Why do you call me that?” She asked with a hint of annoyance. “I'm not a kid and you kissed me so you don't want me to be your daughter- oh.” She'd finally realised, Petyr could practically hear the penny drop. “You... you want me to call you... Daddy, don't you?”
Petyr nodded with a grin.
“Yes, that would make me very happy, Sweetling.”
The older man had said he loved her and maybe Sansa was a bit too trusting but she believed him and after that kiss she doubted he was lying to her. That and he was the only person who seemed to know what made her happy. Sansa liked the idea of being cared for and protected without being treated like a troublesome infant, so she nodded. Petyr wouldn't be a replacement father he'd be someone wise, nurturing, a guiding force that made her happy rather than a parental dictator.
“You're Daddy's little girl now. Don't forget that.”
A growl escaped his lips that pulled up into an evil grin, before she could even think about saying anything else his lips were on her own again, pulling her close. One hand settled in her damp fire-red hair while the other slid down to cup her backside, it was both dominating and protective, something she found herself melting into. Her kisses were basic and inexperienced but Petyr didn't seem to care. Am I really going to do this? Am I really going to call Petyr, Daddy? Sansa asked herself with the last bit of brainpower she had, stay with the guy who has sent me presents twice a year since I was ten and wants me to call him Daddy? Yeah, I am. There was just something about him that she couldn't resist, not that Sansa was going to try.
“Come.” He said when he finally released her mouth again. “I'll show you to your room.”
He seemed excited and he was, she was his to protect, to care for, to love and best of all to show pleasure. His large hand took her smaller one once he'd pulled her duffel bag over his shoulder – uncaring to the fact it was soaked and left his flank wet – and led her up the stairs, they reached the familiar bathroom and went straight past it to the very end of the plum colored hallway.
“Close your eyes.” Sansa smiled and obeyed.
She felt his hand grip her own and pull her slowly into the room before coming to an abrupt stop. Her ears picked up the sound of him setting her duffel bag down on what was probably a bed and then his leather shoes across the floor back to her side.
Blue orbs opened and Sansa gasped.
“This is my room?!”
“It is. Do you like it?” He already knew she did, he just wanted to hear her say it.
The walls were turquoise with the wall to the right of her bed a solid glass window just like in the living room and Petyr's room; he'd always enjoyed holding a glass of bourbon and just looking out over King's Landing from high above. The floors were cherry stained hardwood and before her stood the largest and most cosy looking canopy bed she'd ever seen made up with black silk sheets and a teal comforter. To her left was a door that she assumed lead to a closet and a few feet away a large television on a black stand stood in perfect view of her bed above which was a shelf pouring over with stuffed toys in every shape imaginable. On the other side of the closet door leaned a large bookshelf that was almost completely full. Over by the floor to ceiling window sat a Queen Anne Dollhouse in a lilac-blue trimmed with white, it was beautiful. There were a few shelves ready to be filled with knick-knacks and a fluffy white carpet that looked perfect to cuddle up on. So no, Sansa didn't like it, she adored it.
“I love it! Thank you... Daddy.” Was it wrong that the word felt so right on her lips?
“I've been working on this for a long time.” Petyr told her while walking to sit on the bed. “Originally it was pink but as you got older you seemed to hate the color and so I though blue to match your eyes. I'd hoped you would like it.”
Sansa looked around the room again in awe until her eyes fell on an older brown bear with a little green bow tie that had pride of place on her bed.
“Winston.” The redhead turned to her new Daddy. “I thought I lost him when I was eleven.”
The bear that she'd lovingly named Winston was yet another gift from Petyr, her first Christmas present from him. The bear had dazzling eyes and a big smile, Sansa had cried for days when she'd lost Winston.
“You did. You were playing with your brothers and sister when your father got a call, packed you all up and drove away. I think it was probably about your Uncle Benjin being sick.” Yes, Sansa remembered now, they'd gone straight to the hospital. “I knew you loved the bear so I went and picked it up, doubted they'd drive back and look for it.”
“They didn't.” Sansa told him flatly.
“Would have been suspicious if it suddenly showed up at your front door so I kept it. The dollhouse is a match to the one Arya broke, but in blue rather than pink.”
Sansa felt her heart soar. There was a voice in the back of her head telling her to run, that he was dangerous but there was also a part of her that adored the attention Petyr gave her as well as the amount of time he'd spent thinking about what she would prefer.
“You did all this for me? What if I'd never seen it?”
Sansa sat on the bed beside him and Petyr ran his fingers through her still damp red locks as he answered. Normally he'd never tell someone his motive but Sansa was different, she was his little girl now, all his.
“At first it was more for me than you.” Daddy's tone was gentle. “A perfect ideal. Now you're here though and I should leave you to settle in, baby girl. I'll be downstairs when you're done, no rush.”
She felt warm lips press against her temple and then the bed raise as he stood. Sansa just sat there for a moment taking in her beautiful surroundings and letting the slowly fading scent of his cologne caress her; his smell was so comforting.
“If you don't like something I can change it.” He wanted Sansa to know she only had to ask.
“What? No! I love it just the way it is Petyr-Daddy.” She corrected herself.
Petyr nodded before flashing her a smile and then leaving the room. Sansa had actually done it, she'd run away in the early hours of the morning to live with her stalker, then it occurred to her was he the protective eyes I've always felt ? Petyr didn't seem crazy like the stalkers on television and somehow made her feel safe. Yes, he wanted her to call him Daddy but lots of guys liked it and didn't automatically mean he was crazy. In fact Margaery had been talking about it one day and Jeyne had overheard it, that was the only reason Sansa knew what Daddy Kink was. Was Sansa really doing this? Yes, apparently she was. Sansa actually liked the idea of calling him Daddy, it was just wrong enough to be right.
After a time Sansa pushed herself up from the luxuriously soft bed and pulled open the zipper of her green duffel bag, her books were on top so she set them neatly on the bookshelf giving her first edition pride of place, next came her jewellery box that found a new home on the vanity table by the widow and the dollhouse along with her hairbrush and toiletries bag. She'd only brought two sets of shoes other than the pair she had on and when she pulled the closet door open to put them away she froze. Inside she found dresses, half the closet was filled with lolita dresses, each one looking more expensive than the last. There was a wide range of color choice and all of them were really rather short, that didn't overly surprise Sansa. She pulled out one with thin straps and a flounce skirt made from a soft white fabric with with a little blue ribbon decorating the sweetheart neckline, it was so familiar, almost like one she'd had when she was little. The dress she held wasn't the same but it was almost a perfect match.
“I didn't wear that dress after... after...”
Suddenly a memory clicked it had faded into unimportance so long ago. Sansa's cerulean eyes grew wide before dropping the dress and charging down the stairs to find Petyr. He sat on the leather couch with his cellphone to his ear and Sansa found herself waiting until he'd finished talking to whoever it was.
“... I don't need to explain myself to you, Ros. You and Olyvar can handle things for the rest of tonight on your own.” He paused for a second seeing his little girl on the stairs. “You're a big girl so just do as you're told. I'm busy.” With that Petyr hung up and threw his cellphone down onto the couch cushion.
Sansa watched as Baelish stood and slowly walked towards her, he stopped less than an inch from her face letting his hands rest on her sharp hips.
“Whose Ros?” Asked the redhead almost forgetting why she'd come down.
Sansa told herself she asked out of curiosity but in reality it was because he'd said big girl, Sansa wouldn't admit it but she was a little jealous for a second. Petyr saw all this flash across her face and couldn't help but smile.
“She works for me in the club.” He said pulling his girl a little closer. “I'm meant to be down there tonight but I want to spend time with my little Sweetling.” Petyr kissed her forehead.
Suddenly the reason she'd gone looking for him snapped back to her.
“There's a dress in my closet.” She stated looking into his stormy eyes. “I had one like it when I was a child and now I remember why you're so familiar.” Petyr just waited, he'd been wondering when or even if she'd remember him. “I was ten and I snuck out the house, I thought I was old enough to go and get candy by myself. Half way a man tried to grab me and throw me in his car but then there was another man, he pulled the guy off me and punched the crap out of him. That man saved me, you saved me, and then you took me to get candy anyway before taking me home. You said don't tell Mommy or Daddy about me or the other man and I agreed. I never told anyone about that not even Jeyne, I forgot about it. That store clerk thought I was your daughter.”
“And I didn't correct him.” Petyr's voice was smooth and calm. “Yes, that was me. I didn't know if you'd remember, you were only ten.” his grip on her tightened around her waist. “I wasn't going to let anyone hurt you, had to keep you safe. And I wouldn't have stood a chance against that man if he'd seen me coming.”
Before Petyr had even finished talking Sansa's arms were around his neck holding him close in a hug, this is why I feel safe around him. He saved me. Petyr had protected her all those years ago and now he was doing it again, saving her. Something burst forth in her heart that she'd never felt before, Sansa had no name for it but she liked it, never wanted to let it go.
“You've always been watching out for me, haven't you.” It was a rhetorical question but Petyr answered anyway.
His lips were on her then, chest to chest and Sansa nearly melted. He was bad and conniving but not evil like Joffrey, he treated her as a little girl but nothing like her parents did. Petyr Baelish was everything she was told she shouldn't want but want him she did.
Before Sansa knew it he'd got her pressed up against the wall at the top of the stair with her legs wrapped around his waist to keep her firmly in place and his tongue deep in her mouth. The redhead had never felt anything like what Petyr made her feel, he wanted her but there was one thing that she had to ask before it went any further. He seemed perturbed when she pulled her lips from his.
“I have to ask. The gifts started showing up on my tenth birthday, did you want me like this when I was little?” She gestured to her legs around his waist.
“No.” He responded honestly. “Your birthday last year, you snuck out in a short floral dress and make-up that made you look older. That was when I started thinking about sex, before I just wanted to hold and protect you. Wanted you near me.” It was true. “Just because I want you to be my little girl doesn't mean I wanted you when you were a little girl.”
With that answered Sansa pulled him back to her, she was nervous but tried not to show it. Kissing seemed to come naturally to her though her Daddy seemed more interested in exploring her mouth than her kissing back with skill, she'd learn as time went on. His large hands squeezed her backside every now and again, she knew what he wanted, and that was what made Sansa nervous, she didn't want to be bad at sex and find he lost interest in her. When the fifteen year old spoke she tried to sound cute.
“Would you be gentle with me, Daddy? I've never done this before.”
Petyr paused at that and pulled back to take in the beauty of his girl, Sansa was willing that was for certain but she wasn't ready, not yet anyway, and she'd only just gotten there. He couldn't risk rushing things with her, everything needed to slow down.
“Daddy will be gentle with you, baby girl. I promise, but we're not going to do this now. Soon.”
He'd waited so long for his baby girl and he could wait a little longer, never let it be said that Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish didn't have the patience of a saint. Yes, he could wait. The dark-haired man set his girl down softly and looked into those big blue eyes of hers while pushing a stray strand of hair behind her ear, his touch was so soft.
“I'll make us dinner, you go finish unpacking.”
“Isn't it breakfast in a few hours?” She asked.
“Well, I'm starving and you need some sleep, so I think three in the morning dinner it is.” Petyr smiled and Sansa found it infectious. “And don't question your Daddy.”
“Yes, Daddy. Sorry.”
This was going to be fun, mainly because her parents would drop down dead from shock if they found out. Petyr pressed a kiss to her soft pink lips again before Sansa went off back to her room, she's just as depraved as I am, he thought happily to himself with a smirk.
Chapter 7: Day One Of Sansa's New Life
Sansa looked around her new turquoise bedroom with a smile, now her things were unpacked it really was her own, the room was twice the size of her bedroom at home; no this is home now she corrected herself. The bedroom was her it matched her personality, sweet and innocent but with something lurking underneath that was dangerous and cunning. Looking down at the old army green duffel bag Sansa noticed just how sparsely packed it had been, she'd not really found much Sansa deemed important enough to pack up and bring with her; her better clothing, some make-up she'd had hidden from her Mother, the gifts Petyr had given her over the years, a little jewellery and her shoes. Carefully she unpacked everything and set in its rightful place, her old room had made the gifts stand out like they were wrong but here in the winsome bedroom they belonged like missing pieces of a jigsaw. Her first edition of Jane Eyre sat in pride of place in the space he'd left in her bookshelf along with her other two favourite novels, one fantasy the other a Psychological horror; The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. She fingered the 'S' pendant around her neck as she often did while in thought, something was missing and it took Sansa a second to put her finger on it, she'd cleaned off the black and azure lamp from the right side of her bed setting it instead on her right to make room for her beloved Fabergé Carousel yet never set it up, blue eyes quickly found it wasn't in her bag and nowhere in sight. Where is it?! Her mind demanded. In her mad dash to escape the house before her parents noticed she'd left the most important thing she possessed, Sansa could have kicked herself. There was no way Sansa could go back for it, not now anyway, it was just a thing, a thing she adored but still just a thing. Sansa could live without it, at least she hoped she could.
Catelyn walked swiftly to her eldest daughter's bedroom door at seven o'clock sharp and knocked thrice, clear and loud.
“Sansa, it's time for breakfast.” She called through the large wooden door. “You better have packed for camp.” Nothing, not a single sound, not even breathing. “Sansa?” Still nothing. “Sansa?”
Easily Catelyn turned the door knob and went into her daughter's pink room, before her was the most horrifying sight she'd ever seen. Draws lay open just like her closet which was half empty, books were gone and Sansa's bed clearly hadn't been slept in. The window was wide open as well letting in the cold morning air.
“Ned!” Catelyn yelled down the stairs. “Ned! Sansa's gone!”
The aged redhead couldn't understand why Sansa would leave, unless it was one of those damn school friends of hers; they're a bad influence. Has it been a friend? Or had she met some boy who'd lead her astray?
It was nice to have a meal that didn't start with saying Grace. Sansa sat opposite Petyr at the large glass dining table while they ate, he was a good cook and Sansa happily munched her prawn linguine with a pleasant twist of chilli.
She could feel his green-grey eyes on her, Joffrey often watched her but their gaze was very different. Joffrey's tried to beat and devour her but Petyr's beautiful orbs caressed her body as though she were a goddess. It made her smile.
“Regretfully I wasn't aware you'd return to me so I lack your favourite lemon cakes for dessert.” He told her in that deep and dominant voice of his.
“That's okay.” She smiled and set her cutlery down. “I'm full anyway. Thank you.”
“'Thank you' what?”
“Thank you, Daddy.” She corrected happily.
Every time he heard her utter his new title it sent a surge of primal pride through his lean body, so much so he wanted to growl. Petyr stood and cleared the plates away to the dishwasher.
“Sweetling, did you tell anyone you were coming here?” Petyr knew she wasn't stupid but he just wanted to be certain.
“No, I wouldn't risk that. I don't want to be found.”
“Good.” Said Petyr as he returned to Sansa's side, stormy green eyes looking down at her with a small grin. “Because I don't want you to be taken away. I spent so long wanting you with me and now I have you.”
They both pushed away any thoughts of her leaving or being taken, neither wanted that, and Petyr changed the subject.
“Do you have everything you need?” He asked as a hand combed through her long red hair.
“Yes, thank you, Daddy.” Sansa smiled. “I grabbed my clothes and all my important things, except-” She cut herself off and stared down to her lap.
“What, Sweetling? Tell Daddy and I'll fix it.”
Sansa sighed and met his dark and cunning eyes.
“I forgot my Fabergé Carousel, I like to watch it before I go to sleep. I don't know how I forgot it.”
“But you want it.” He remembered the day he purchased it for her, he'd spent a long time finding the perfect one.
“Do you need help cleaning up, Daddy?” Sansa asked with a smile as she stood up.
“No, Sweetling. You should go and take a shower, your hair is still damp from the rain.” Rain, which had finally ceased. “Let Daddy deal with with this.”
Petyr took her into his arms and pressed a delicate kiss to the top of her head, his warmth drifted through his tailored black clothing, past her own and warmed her body; it soothed her very soul.
Sansa was his now, all his, and Petyr would never let his fire haired beauty go. Cat and Ned would search for Sansa of that there was no doubt, but who would ever suspect she'd gone to him? Baelish was the very last person Cat would ever suspect to have her daughter.
The next morning when Sansa awoke it was to the gentle movement of her beloved Fabergé Carousel and her Daddy perched on the end of her bed; how long he'd been watching her sleep she didn't know.
“Morning, Sweetling.” He almost purred as Sansa sat bolt upright, eyes glowing in amazement and disbelief that her carousel was on her night stand.
“You went to the house to get my carousel?” Her eyes never left the circling horses.
“Indeed I did, it's important to you. I gave this to you so long ago, now I give it to you again.”
In seconds Sansa had kicked off her soft black sheets and flung herself into Petyr's awaiting arms, he clung to her small body as though she'd suddenly vanish and breathed in her natural scent. Heavenly.
“Thank you, Daddy! Thank you.” It was strange how normal that word had become so quickly, so natural.
“You're very welcome, my little girl.”
With that Littlefinger pressed his lips to the teenager's own, tongue licking along her bottom lip until she parted them for him. Slowly, so as not to spook her, Petyr moved Sansa from his lap and down onto her back letting him dominate the space above her, one hand propped him up with the other was happy in her hair, Sansa's arms still hung around his neck. It was clear that Sansa was unpractised when it came to kissing but Petyr was more than willing to teach his Sweetling, teach her to kiss, to bite, to suck, in all the right ways.
In the back of her mind there was a voice – that sounded annoyingly like her mother – telling Sansa that she was only fifteen and this was all highly illegal and wrong, that he'd stalked her for years, but Sansa didn't care, she pushed the voice away, Petyr's fingers on her skin just felt too good
Petyr couldn't let himself get lost in the moment, he wouldn't take her, not yet, Sansa had to be a hundred percent comfortable with him before they progressed that far. However, that didn't change his desperate need to touch her, to taste her. His long fingers left her hair and moved to pull her lilac sleep shorts off and almost instantly Sansa tried to press her legs together but all she succeed in doing was wrapping her legs around Petyr's hips. He let out a deep growl from his chest.
“No, no, Sweetling. Let Daddy see you.” He purred when she let him look at parts of her than no other ever had.
He looked at the delicate red curls of her glistening virginal sex, so wet and I've only kissed her, his mind muttered dominantly before his let his fingers stroke along her folds. She moaned, loud and needy, if Petyr never heard another sound ever again he'd die a happy man. She was beautiful beneath him, arms falling from his neck to grip the bed sheets, lips parted to let little groans and pants escape as his clever fingers explored her wetness. Sansa had touched herself before but it had never been like this, she'd never felt so desperate for it. He brought her to the brink of pleasure and then pulled his hand away, her eyes flashed with need. Petyr wouldn't deprive his darling little girl though, with a grin he slid down her supple body to pepper sweet kisses to her inner thighs.
“Daddy.” She breathed, the small word spurring him on, making him want to hear her scream.
“Shush, Sweetling. Daddy's going to make you feel good.”
His tongue licked at her folds hungrily tasting the sweet flavour of his girl. Sansa gasped out a strangled moan, she'd never felt anything like Petyr's tongue before and couldn't even put the feeling into words. His tongue lapped at her folds, he was amazed at how wet she was for him, her hands gave up clinging to the sheets and raked into his salt and pepper hair instead, gripping tightly as his tongue circled her clit.
He kissed that sensitive bundle of nerves over and over making her scream louder and louder for him, then he slipped a finger inside her. Her grip on his hair became vice like but it only spurred him on as she moaned. A finger n finger slipped in her wet heat and then another, he crocked them as he kissed her clit. It didn't take long for Sansa to start pushing back on his fingers, she was close and he knew that, so he slipped in a third finger. After a few moments of careful thrusting she screamed out wrapping her legs around his head. Petyr made sure to keep the thrusts going throughout her orgasm until she was left panting, her eyes fluttered closed. Sansa felt nothing but pure pleasure.
“Oh Daddy!” She all but screamed and Gods did that feed Petyr's ego.
He smirked when his lips met hers again, knowing she could taste herself on him.
“Are you a virgin?” Of course he knew the answer but there was something satisfying about hearing it from her lips.
“Have you made yourself cum?” He caressed her neck with open-mouthed kisses and bites.
“... Yes.” She admitted as her breathing returned to normal, blue eyes glistening up at him.
“And what do you think about?” His fingers went back to combing through her beautiful locks.
“You, Daddy.” That got his attention. “At first I thought of Joffrey because everyone said we were in love... but I found myself thinking about who had sent the gifts.”
“Mmm, and how did you picture me?” Petyr nibbled at her clavicle.
“Like you are, Daddy.” It was true, she'd imagined dark hair and a lean body, blue-grey eyes as well. “A little younger but I like you better than my fantasy.”
Oh, she's going to be a naughty little one when I'm done. She'd already come to the dark side willingly. Sansa wasn't the good girl Cat liked to believe, in reality she was cunning, depraved deviant more suited to Petyr's world than the one she'd been born into.
“Breakfast?” He asked with a kiss.
“Please.” Sansa smiled. “Can I help?”
Petyr had told her he wanted to take care of her but Sansa still wanted to earn her keep.
“Only if you do as Daddy says.”
Sansa made a cross over her heart in silent promise and grinned up at him wantonly, her Daddy made her feel so alive and she'd only been there one night.
“Good girl. Take the rest of your clothes off so Daddy can dress you and then we'll make breakfast together. Sound good, Sweetling?”
Sansa nodded and Petyr shuffled away to watch her disrobe as he licked his fingers clean of her intoxicating juices. The redhead could feel the slippery wetness between her legs, a reminder of the pleasure Daddy had just given her. Steel blue eyes caressed her body, committing every inch of her to memory, the slope of her breasts, the small bruises starting to emerge on her neck; Sansa was marked as his.
As soon as his fingers were clean Petyr stood and threw open Sansa's closet, he perused for a brief moment in search of something that would match her beauty. There were a plethora of options but Petyr decided on something simple and elegant for her first full day with him, the dress he took out was a halter neck that came down to just above her knee and made of a soft white cotton with a delicate ruffle across the sweetheart neckline. He set it neatly down on her bed before going to the dresser and taking out white stockings and yellow lace panties; Gods how he'd longed to see her in those. The items were set on the bed just as neatly as the dress and then Petyr took the naked girl into his arms. She was so perfect in every way, their lips meeting in a gentle kiss that quickly had Sansa melting into his warmth.
“You're beautiful.” He told her in truth, Petyr lied for a living but he could only tell his little girl the truth.
She let him dress her, slipping the soft dress over her head and tying the ribbon into a neat bow at the back of her neck, her red hair falling around her face looking even bolder thanks to the pure snow of the dress. Cerulean eyes watched him silently when he dropped to his knees and rolled the expensive stockings up her thighs, kissing them in turn before returning to his full hight.
“What about my panties, Daddy?” She questioned with a sultry grin; or as sultry as the inexperienced Sansa could manage.
“I prefer you without them.” His voice was dark and dominant, his blue-grey eyes shone with power. “Of to breakfast then, come along, Sweetling.”
Chapter 8: A New Normal
It was high noon and Petyr sat quietly in his club office going through the profits from the night before. A cup of steaming coffee sat beside his laptop, dark as night and sweet as sin and as hard as he tried to focus, Petyr's mind kept slipping back to the goddess only a few floors above his head. She couldn't leave his apartment, a keycard was needed to call the elevator and Petyr had the only one. Knowing Sansa as well as he did, she'd probably be in her room reading.
Ros pushed the door open and stepped into Petyr's office, clearly he'd been so lost in his thoughts of Sansa that he'd not even heard Ros knock.
“ Boss, a pipe just burst the second floor east women's bathroom. There's water everywhere and it's already dripped through the ceiling into Armeca's room.”
“For fucks sake.” He sighed. “Valantin is expected tonight.” Petyr leaned back on his high-backed chair and looked at Ros. “Alright, she can use your room while she's with Valantin and then I'll move her to a spare once it's made up.”
“Ros, call everyone together as well. I want to speak to you all in five minutes, bar staff too.”
“Yes, Boss.” She paused for a moment, he wasn't going to like what she said next. “Em, also, Katrina has called in sick again.”
“Is she pretending to have the plague? That's almost three weeks she's been fucking about, I've been more than generous. Tell her she's fired.”
“You've known she wasn't sick from the beginning.” It wasn't a question.
“Of course, my dear. I know everything. Now gather everyone up.”
Ros turned and left to carry out Littlefinger's orders to the letter but his slightly accented voice brought her to a halt halfway over the threshold.
“ I'm sure you can call the plumber by yourself.”
R os said nothing, she simply closed the door quietly. All Baelish wanted to do was vanish off upstairs to his girl and play with her, fill her. Petyr knew she was only fifteen but Gods did he want to fuck her, he didn't care about the law, he'd have her soon enough. He gave up on his work a few moments later and logged on to his favourite Daddy's little girl store in search of new things to dress his angel in. Petyr had told Ros to have everyone to meet in five minutes but they worked for him and could wait as long as he damn well pleased, money was no object to Baelish and he – rather quickly – built up a healthy list of gifts for her. His Sweetling would have anything she wanted and more.
After fifteen minutes he grabbed the rather large black box from his desk and casually wandered down the dark spiral staircase that covered all three floors of his club, from top to bottom; offices, the rooms for his whores. and the main bar area and dance floor. His staff had been gathered by Ros and stood at the bar while T eiichi – Petyr's only capable barman – wiped the sleek black bar top down with a cloth. As soon as Oly set eyes of his charcoal suit clad boss on the stairs he pulled a bottle of bourbon down off the top shelf, pouring it into a cut crystal glass and rounding the bar to hand it over. Petyr said a quick thank you before taking a sip of the rich amber liquid.
“ Alright, listen up because I'm not in the habit of repeating myself. Olyvar, hand these out.” Petyr held out the black box for the blonde to take. “You're all getting smart watches because I'm sick of having to replace the fucking tablets thanks to shit being spilt on them. They stay in your lockers unless working, they're to do your job not to go jogging. You break it you bought it. They're running the same program as the tables. Take a member number and click the item number for whatever the fuck they want then get it or them, same thing as usual. No swapping, no breaking, no taking home. Now back to work with you.” Petyr clapped his hands together in a well get on with it sort of way and watched as everyone went back to work.
Olyvar leaned against the sleek black bar and watched his boss for a moment or two as he continued to sip his bourbon until finally the blonde spoke.
“ So,” Oly began with a grin. “Do you get games on this?”
“Did you listen to anything I just said?”
“Yeah, of course, but I love your annoyed and disgruntled face.” Giggled Oly. “It's cute.”
“Do stop referring to me as 'cute'.” Grumbled Petyr.
“ But you are-” Baelish cut him off with a glare. “Fine, but you do have a call me master thing going on.”
The two men chuckled. Petyr had no need nor want for friends but Olyvar did amuse him most of the time, he was rather conniving as well. Petyr downed the last of his bourbon before setting the glass back down on the bar.
“Have someone make up a room for Armeca to whore in until hers and the east second floor bathroom has been repaired.”
“ On it.”
By about eight o'clock that evening Sansa had started to grow lonely and found herself watching television as she lay in a rather unladylike position, her parents didn't let her and her siblings watch much television and Sansa had soon found a horror movie. Though it was a little scary it was nothing compared to what her Mother had made her expect. The movie, Rec, had subtitles and Sansa actually rather liked it. Almost halfway through Petyr's elevator pinged and the man himself stepped into the penthouse, he went straight to the couch and looked down to see his beautiful angel.
“Little girls shouldn't watch scary movies.” Sansa jumped. “I didn't mean to scare you.”
“It's alright, Daddy.”
“No more scary movies unless Daddy's here, Sweetling. Daddy needs to be here if his little girl gets upset.” He told her softly.
“Yes, Daddy.” She grinned with her best Daddy's girl smile.
“Can I watch the rest with you before I go back to work?”
Sansa nodded and Petyr dropped down onto the couch before pulling his little girl into his lap, she rested her head on his shoulder and clung to her Daddy's dark green shirt.
“Do you have to go again?” She asked sadly.
“Yes, Sweetling, I do. I'll come and see you as soon as The Mockingbird closes, you'll be asleep though.” Petyr ran his fingers through her soft hair as the movie continued to play.
“I want to wait for you.” She told him determinedly.
“No. Little girls need their beauty sleep. You'll go to bed once the movie finishes.”
“But it's early.” She protested.
“You'll go to bed at ten and I'll come and see you when the club closes, alright?”
Sansa wriggled in his lap teasingly, if she knew what she was doing or not Petyr wasn't quite sure, either way he enjoyed it and pressed a kiss to her porcelain temple.
“Can't I come with you?”
“Little girls aren't allowed in night clubs or brothels. Understand?”
It was then that Sansa chose to straddle him, her cotton dress rising up her thighs and revealing her white lace stocking tops, instantly Petyr's hands were running up her thighs. Sansa was intoxicating and addictive, her body supple and delicate. Petyr's w arm lips encompassed Sansa's own, keeping her in a blissful state of pleasure. The fingers of his right hand ghosted up her flank and into long fiery hair as their eyes fell shut and their tongues met letting passion begin to sizzle away in their blood. He pulled his baby girl closer and closer, until the only thing in between them is the thin layers of fabric. Sansa's breath is ragged and heavy, smelling faintly of the strawberries she'd had at breakfast. She arched into his touch, revelling in the warmth and care of her Daddy. She grumbled when Petyr pulled away.
“As much as I'd love to stay here and ravish you, Sweetling – Gods I'd love to – but I have to go back to work.” He lamented.
Reluctantly Petyr left his darling girl and went back down to his club, practically hiding in a corner when Lysa Arryn appeared, sometimes he wondered if Lysa even remembered having ever been sober; probably not.
At three in the morning The Mockingbird finally closed and his staff cleaned up before heading home to their beds. Normally Baelish would remain in his office long after closing to make sure everything was in order and ready for the next day but now he had Sansa it was time for a new normal.
As the elevator rose towards his penthouse Petyr lit a cigarette and breathed deeply enjoying the taste, he slipped his trusty zippo back into his inner pocket just as the doors rolled open revealing darkness save for the moonlight that drifted in through the glass wall. Baelish found his girl in bed just as he'd told her to be, tucked up in her black silk sheets as she lay on her side cuddling Winston the bear with her hair scattered all over her pillow. She's beautiful, Petyr's mind muttered. He just stood by her bed for a time watching Sansa sleep peaceful, or at least she did until Petyr turned to leave.
“Daddy?” She called out quietly causing Petyr to turn back.
“I didn't mean to wake you, Sweetling.” He told her softly as he crouched by her side, his blue-grey eyes glinting in the darkness. “Go back to sleep.” He pressed a kiss to her supple lips.
“Him too.” The redhead demanded sleepily. Petyr flashed her a half-smile before giving the bear a quick kiss.
“Good night, baby girl.”
“Stay with me?” Sansa rolled onto her back and grinned up at him, blue shining through long lashes.
“Daddy needs to take a shower, then I'll come hold you.” He promised and she nodded before rolling back over and closing her eyes, her stuffie cuddled close to her chest.
She didn't wake when he climbed into bed with her a short time later, but her body did turn over to happily cuddle into his naked chest, bear forgotten on the other side of her. Sansa subconsciously breath him in, there was still a faint scent of cigarettes that always clung to him as well as what could only be described as Petyr Baelish. He didn't just smell of smoke or shower gel, he smelt of safety.
Petyr couldn't help but watch his darling girl, especially after that little grin appeared on her porcelain face. He knew that smile was because of him, she'd never smiled like that in all the years he'd been watching her. As long as Sansa was happy and undeniably his, Petyr was happy.
Chapter 9: Daddy's Girl
When Sansa awoke it was to an empty bed and her stuffie, Winston, tucked comfortably in her arms. If the sheets hadn't been ruffled she'd have believed he'd never come to bed, she sat up and rubbed at her cerulean eyes with little fists before stretching. Sansa clambered out of bed and left Winston tucked up as though he was still lost in slumber.
Sansa padded down the stairs to see if her Daddy want to dress her like yesterday, Petyr stood to the right of his couch staring out over the metropolis of King's Landing; his cellphone to his ear. The redhead said nothing and supposed that her Daddy wouldn't want her listening in but before she could turn and wander back to her room something caught her attention.
“...I don't give a fuck what you think, I pay you to do as you're told and move product not to think.” Petyr snarled. “Now do get back to work before something horrible happens to you.” With that Petyr hung up and shoved the phone back to his pants and turned to see his beloved baby girl on the stairs. “Hello Sweetling, how's Daddy's girl today?”
“Are you going to hurt whoever was on the phone?”
No cute voice, no Daddy at the end, and Petyr picked up on that instantly. He felt a tiny twinge of annoyance that dissipated quickly, she known he wasn't a good man when she'd returned to him, surely she'd seen something like this coming? Petyr sauntered over to his girl and pulled her into his arms, lips pressing against the skin of her snow white neck. She looked stunning in nothing but her panties and one of his grey shirts, long smooth legs and only a few buttons holding the shirt over her breast.
“Sweetling, Daddy has a job to do and sometimes threats need to be made in order to get that job done.” He explained innocently.
“I thought you owned the club?”
Again there was no Daddy, no cuteness. Sansa knew Petyr was a dangerous man, he'd been stalking her for years after all but she'd pushed all that away in favour of being free from her parents and the way he made her feel.
“I do, among other things.” He answers cryptically.
Sansa had no doubt that Petyr could kill her in an instant if he wanted but for some reason that didn't scare her, actually it was a little exciting.
“Following me isn't the only illegal thing you've done, is it?” She wasn't surprised.
“No, baby girl, it isn't.” He cupped her cheek and tipped her head up so their blue eyes could meet. “I'll never hurt you, never.” It wasn't just a promise it was a vow. “You're my little girl, my Sweetling. You're more beautiful than she ever was.” Sansa didn't know what that meant but she allowed the older man to pull her into a kiss.
“Do you kill people, Daddy?” His title was back and Baelish couldn't help but wonder if his girl was even more naughty than he'd given her credit for.
“Only when I have to, Sweetling.” He confessed into her ear as his large hands pulled her hips against his own.
“The man that tried to kidnap me, the man you saved me from, did you-?” Petyr cut her off easily.
“Kill him? Yes. Firstly, he hurt you which I don't take kindly to. Second, he would have gone out in search of another child as soon as he got chance.”
Sansa didn't quite know how to respond to that, it had been drilled into her than killing was wrong, thou shalt not kill, but Petyr was right, men like the one who'd grabbed her would have just gone looking for another child. People like that didn't deserve to live. He'll kill for me, said her mind and it sparked something inside Sansa, something powerful and hot. Something that had her breathing growing slightly heavy.
“Let's get you dressed, shall we?”
“Okay, Daddy.” She shook her head to throw away her thoughts and bring herself back to the world around her before she smiled and let Petyr pull her into his arms bridal style.
The man with grey at his temples took Sansa back to her bedroom, her arms slipping around his neck to keep him close, he'd not dressed for the day either and Sansa reveled in the sight of him in nothing but his sleep pants. Baelish whispered sweet nothings into her ear as he carried her back and set her gently down on the canopy bed with a kiss. With a wait here baby Petyr pulled open her large closet and started to search for the perfect dress.
“What should Daddy put you in today.” He mused aloud as his blue-grey eyes scanned through the plethora of dresses and cute little outfits. “Something sweet and innocent I think, the perfect costume to hide your inner wolf.”
After a few moments Petyr re-emerged with a white blouse and short red skirt over his left arm, the blouse had cap sleeves and a turndown collar while the rose red skirt would only come down to her mid thigh and had a white lace trim and a little red bow on the front. Slowly Petyr unbuttoned they grey shirt he'd given her to sleep in revealing her chest, small bruises had formed from his attentions, Sansa Stark had officially been marked as his.
“You're beautiful.” He said almost absent-mindedly as he slipped her turquoise satin panties up her smooth legs followed by a matching bra. The skirt and blouse fit her perfectly, cuddling the fifteen year old's curves.
Sansa watched with a soft smile as her Daddy slipped her feet into her mary jane shoes; heeled and in a rich burgundy. He took such pride in dressing her, as though she were a masterpiece that only he could touch. Though innocent enough Sansa's mother would never have let her dress in such a short skirt and especially not in heels, Petyr dressed her to be beautiful and sexy while her mother insisted on prim and proper. Petyr Baelish made her feel like a woman while her mother had just made her feel trapped.
“Hmm, pretty as a picture.” He grinned when he stepped back to take in his work.
She let him sit her at her beautiful wooden vanity table with ovular mirror to brush her hair, how a club and brothel owner with his hands in several illegal pies knew how to braid her hair was a little beyond Sansa but she enjoyed the attention, especially when he bent down kiss her neck and coaxed her up from her chair to press her against his lean body, a hand snaking up her skirt.
“That's my good girl.” He purred.
“Daddy-” She cut herself off when his fingers vanished into her panties.
Maybe Sansa should have been afraid of Petyr, he'd stalked her, he ran a whorehouse out of his nightclub and by his own omission killed and threatened without hesitation. It should have scared her, should have sent her running back to her parents begging them to keep her safe. Should didn't always come to fruition though, no matter how much Sansa learnt about Petyr's cunning she couldn't get enough of the way he touched her, kissed her. This dangerous man was the only person to ever make her feel truly cared for, a teenager often misjudged things but Sansa didn't care.
“Sweetling, tell me what you want.” He muttered against her lips before thrusting his tongue into her hot mouth, her thighs parted desperately for him.
“Daddy, I need-” A gasp cut her off when his fingers slipped into her wet heat.
“Tell Daddy, Sweetling.”
“Make me cum.” She begged, which only caused him to chuckle.
Littlefinger backed the teenager up until she fell down onto the bed pulling him down along with her.
“Of course Daddy will make you come. Since you've been such a good girl.”
His calloused hands pulled her firm thighs apart and pushed her satin panties to the side so he could gaz e at her glistening sex, with a titillating smirk Petyr vanished underneath her cute little red skirt with his arms wrapping around her thighs. She clenched her jaw and leaned back into the dark pillows, Sansa eyes slipped closed and her mouth fell open. Petyr knew exactly how he affected her and gleefully took her clit into his mouth, sucking and swirling his tongue around it like a starving man. Her breathing picked up instantly, harsh breaths in and out, he rewarded his girl with a finger slipping into her, causing Sansa to gasp and immediately let out a loud, low – and somewhat primal – moan. He slid in another finger and she whimpered, the sound heavenly. Petyr felt himself twitch in anticipation, he began a brutal pace with his fingers, sliding them in and out, causing her to moan and squirm her hips as her pleasure started to build; a fire burning powerfully. When his tongue slipped inside her Sansa gasped loudly and without shame.
“More... please... more.”
Oh what the sound of Sansa Stark begging did to him, his erection strained in his pants leaking and begging for attention but his Sweetling was more important; now she was his she'd get everything she could ever want.
Sansa's pleasure climbed, her chest rose and fell with desperation. She felt, she needed, she wanted, she was so close. Suddenly white erupted behind her eyes when she finally came like a bomb had gone off wiping out everything except her euphoria. Her nails dug into his shoulders leaving behind crescent moon shaped bruises, similar to the ones that would mark her hips.
Petyr rose to sit on his haunches to watch Sansa ride out her orgasm while licking his fingers clean of her sweet juices. Sansa felt a shiver go down her spine upon seeing his enjoyment.
“What about you, Daddy?” She questioned, cerulean eyes rested on the bulge in his pants. “Are you going-”
“No, Sweetling. The fact you're asking like that means you're not quite ready for Daddy just yet.” But Gods did he want to.
“But I don't want to be a bad girl and ignore you.” I've only been with him two days, should I be this use to calling him being Daddy and me his little girl? Sansa chose not to dwell on that.
“And you want to be a good little girl for your Daddy. That's my girl.” He smirked. There was a pause before he gestured to the floor beside her bed. “On your knees, Sweetling.” Sansa didn't move, unsure as to what he wanted. “Do as you're told, Sansa.”
Petyr's voice was dominant and powerful, teeming with authority and the stunning redhead found herself obeying before she even knew she'd moved. She thudded down on her knees, looking up at him with big blue eyes, that look alone nearly pushed him over into orgasm there and then. Catelyn was nothing compared to hid sweet Sansa.
“Sweetling,” he began with a gleam in his eyes. “Do you know what a blowjob is?”
Petyr tugged off his cobalt sleep pants and perched on the edge of her bed with his legs open for her to settle in between.
Slowly she started to speak. “... Joffrey used to say he'd make me-”
“Don't talk about him.” He growled; he'd deal with that blonde bastard at a later date and certainly not while his Sansa was on her knees for him.
“Sorry, Daddy.” She muttered apologetically. “I know what it is, I don't know how though.”
His redhead actually looked ashamed of that but she was the virginal daughter of highly religious parents and only fifteen, it was to be expected.
“It's okay, Sweetling.” Petyr encouraged easily. It was strange, Petyr Baelish was meticulous and calculating, he planned everything and yet still made Sansa feel like all of this was spontaneous. “Go on, Sweetling.”
Petyr's voice was full of encouragement and Sansa found herself reaching out to take her Daddy in hand, it was hotter than she'd expected, harder too. Baelish let his little girl explore for a time as her hands made their way down his length experimentally, making sure to press and memorise every shift and curve of him.
“Not that tight, Sweetling.” Petyr quickly grabbed her hand and released her grip on him a little, he guided her smaller hand along his length showing her exactly what to do. Sansa was a quick study and determined to get this right, her Daddy had made her feel so good more than once and now it was her turn. “There you go.” He gasped and released her hand. “Just like that.”
Gently, she stroked the older man and Petyr let out an approving sound that made Sansa surge with confidence. She was doing something right, she was making her Daddy hum in pleasure. Braver, she increased her pace, making sure to swipe her thumb over the head coated in pre-cum. When she went no further Petyr grabbed the back of her neck, it wasn't hard or forced, just a soft guide that brought her face closer to his hard member.
“Open your mouth, baby girl. Be brave for Daddy.” Petyr wouldn't force his girl but he would thoroughly encourage her. Sansa obeyed, face reddened by the knowledge that this was actually happening. “Wider. Let go and then take my cock up your mouth.” He told her as though it were simple.
Experimentally Sansa licked the head and tasted the bead of pre-cum, it wasn't unpleasant. Finally Sansa took her Daddy's large and engorged length into her mouth, his hand guiding her.
“Don't... not teeth, baby.” Petyr panted as his hand tightened its grip on the back of Sansa's neck. “That's it... just like that.”
The older man's hips jolted up with a loud groan when Sansa leaned back to swirled her tongue around his head, his hardness slamming back into her mouth, a fifteen year old had no right being that good that quickly. Tears sprung in Sansa's eyes, whimpering at the sudden movement – almost gagging when Daddy hit the back of her throat. The redhead glanced up at him but Petyr had his head tipped back and his mouth hung open in a silent moan. Sansa sucks grew more confident with the help of Petyr's hand. Sansa hummed.
“Fuck! That's it, just like that, Sweetling.”
She felt so amazing wrapped around him, such a perfect and angelic little mouth being used for something so primal and sinful, it made it all the more arousing. The man with grey at his temples finally managed to open his blue-grey eyes and looked down to find Sansa watching him, seemed his little girl enjoyed watching his pleasure as much as Petyr enjoyed seeing her's. Locking their eyes Sansa took all of him into her mouth, how she'd developed so much confidence so quickly was beyond him.
“Sansa, I'm – fuck – I'm going to.”
Petyr's pleasure finally overtook him and he came, hot seed spilling into her mouth and Sansa did her best to swallow every drop. He collapsed on the bed, releasing his grip on her neck and slipping free of her mouth, he panted harshly and Sansa revelled in the knowledge that she'd done that to him. Her jaw ached but she paid no attention to it as she clambered up on the bed beside her Daddy and cuddled into his still panting chest.
“Did I do good, Daddy?” She asked into his chest and Petyr wrapped an arm around her.
“Yes, Sweetling, you did amazing. Daddy's proud of you, my brave girl.” He kissed the top of her head. “I love you, Sweetling.”
Sansa froze at those words, her parents and siblings had told her they loved her before but this was different, this was her Daddy. The words resonated in her heart making it sting in such a way that it bordered on pain and pleasure, Sansa found herself grinning ear to ear as the words repeated in her mind.
“I love you too, Daddy.”
The nightclub owner slipped himself back into his cobalt pants and then tipped her chin up with a single finger, blue-grey orbs locked with cerulean ones, and pressed his lips to her own. He tasted himself on her tongue and filled with a masculine pride.
Chapter 10: Lemon Cake
Almost a week had gone by since Sansa had moved in with him and Petyr couldn't have been happier, well, he could have been if he'd been in the penthouse with his girl rather than his club office watching the news. Catelyn and Ned covered the screen begging for any information on their missing daughter, Police wouldn't think she'd been abducted though, Sansa had packed all of her things and left of her own free will that much was obvious. His girl had been smart enough to leave her phone as well, it meant she couldn't be traced and that his was the only phone she had access to, a phone she had to ask to use. He couldn't let her go, she was his little girl, cared for, wanted and loved more than she'd ever been at the Stark home.
W hen a knock came at his office door, a gentle rapping that could have only been Olyvar , Petyr switched off the television and threw the remote over to the couch.
Sure enough the beautiful blonde known as Olyvar, or Oly to his friends, appeared in the doorway.
“Hey, Ros said to bring you this.” Oly gestured to the glass of bourbon in his hand as he crossed the room and set it down before his boss.
Petyr took a sip letting the alcohol burn pleasantly down his throat; Oly watched his Adam's apple bob happily.
“To what do I owe this to?” Littlefinger asked before taking another sip.
“Lysa Arryn is here.” Said the blonde with a look of pity and Petyr sighed then downed the lot.
“ Why did you even let her in, Olyvar? It's ten-thirty in the goddamn morning, we're shut.”
“Hey, don't shoot the messenger.” Oly held his hands up. “She slipped in when Azah arrived to do inventory, Mads isn't on the door until tonight otherwise she'd be halfway home by now.” Oly saw Petyr's body tense under his shirt.
“Fuck. What does she want?”
“You, of course.” The blonde laughed.
“One day I'm going to push that bitch off a bridge.” Petyr mumbled to himself almost absent-mindedly but Olyvar heard it and snorted.
“When you do, sell tickets. We'd make a fortune.”
“Hmm. Just get rid of her.” He commanded.
“Tried, she won't budge. I quote 'I'm not leaving until I see my Petyr!'”
Littlefinger let out another sigh and leaned back in his black chair, eyes stared at the ceiling for a moment before flashing back to Oly as he pulled his wallet from his breast pocket.
“Here.” He handed Olyvar a crisp twenty. “Go to the diner across the street and get the biggest slice of lemon cake you can find.” He'd promised his sweet Sansa a treat that morning when she'd complained about him going to work so early.
“Erm, okay. Never took you for a cake fan, Boss, but alright.”
With a dismissing glance from Petyr he was gone. Baelish looked over to his small wet bar and the bottle of bourbon that sat in one corner, if Lysa was downstairs he didn't know whether to drink it or smash himself over the head with in. In the end Petyr just stood, straightened his suit and headed downstairs. The building his club occupied was five floors and a basement, ground level was the main body of The Mockingbird while the second floor held the rooms his whores worked out off, third floor was his office and two smaller ones for Olyvar and Ros who acted as his co-second in commands. Staff lockers were on that floor too. The fourth floor was storage that no one ever really went in unless a holiday had reared it's ugly head. The fifth floor was his penthouse and the home of his darling Sansa. The penthouse was where he'd have much rather been instead of walking up to Lysa who stood dead centre of his club.
Azah, a stunning girl with mocha skin and dark eyes, was wiping down the black bar top while Ros sat on one of the black and purple stools going over music for the night. A few of his cleaning staff were dotted about as well but they all seemed to be giving Lysa Arryn a wide birth and Petyr couldn't fault them.
Steel blue eyes fell on Lysa, her faded red hair held in messy place by far too much hairspray and the women wore a dress that would have looked ugly even on a woman half her age, it was too tight, too small and a hideous pink.
“Lysa.” Said Baelish in an emotionless tone as he approached the woman.
“Petyr darling!” She beamed, latched onto him and pressed her overly glossed lips to his, he cringed and Petyr was pretty sure Ros and Azah had as well.
There goes the taste of Sansa, said his mind with a mournful sigh.
“Why are you here, Lysa?” That time of the morning she should have been fawning over that son of hers.
“My niece has gone missing, you must have heard. I'm so worried.” She announced while cuddling into his chest, her perfume assaulting his nose.
I highly doubt that, thought Petyr, you couldn't care less you pathetic excuse for a woman. Despite his thoughts Littlefinger played along.
“What a tragedy-”
“I knew you'd understand.” She cut him off. “You always do.”
“Maybe you should be with Cat?” He suggested as he pushed her away to look at her.
“She has that husband!” Lysa hated when Petyr mentioned her sister, always had and always would. “All those other children too.”
S he made it sound as though Sansa were easily replaceable, that was far from the truth, no amount of children could replace his girl. Sansa was special and utterly perfect!
“You must be really worried about Sansa.”
“Hmm? Oh, yes, very much.” She grinned. “Cuddle me better?”
I'd rather have my throat slit. “ I would love to but I have a meeting.” He lied effortlessly. “I was just about to leave when you arrived, I'll talk to you and Cat later.” No he wouldn't.
“Tell them something came up.” She purred in a frightfully unattractive way. “Give me a few minutes and something will be up.” She chuckled and Petyr was suddenly glad there was nothing in his stomach to bring up. He sensed Azah and Ros cringe again.
“It's not the sort of meeting I can miss, Lysa.” He reasoned. “You know I'd rather be with you.”
“You're such a hard worker, Petyr.” She kissed him again, nothing like his darling Sansa did. “Jon doesn't even compare to you.” Littlefinger just smiled and pretend he gave a shit about anything she said. “I still need something to calm my nerves though, my poor niece.”
Petyr understood and grinned knowingly, finally they'd gotten to the real reason she was there.
“Azah, help Lysa would you?” Though phrased as a question it clearly wasn't and the mocha skinned twenty-six year old nodded. “I'll be getting my things for my meeting.” Which translated to I'll be hiding in my office, although Petyr would have preferred the word retreating instead of hiding.
Baelish marched off back to his office quickly after that, thinking only of brushing his teeth and licking at Sansa's folds to get rid of the taste of Lysa Arryn.
Petyr slumped back into his office chair and looked over at the cameras to see Azah leading the older woman off to a blind spot, they stayed there for a moment as drugs were handed over and then thankfully Lysa left. Baelish let his head fall against the mahogany of his desk where it stayed even after Oly knocked and entered with a small plastic tray of lemon cake in his hand.
“Your cake, My Lord.” Oly grinned smugly. “How bad was she?” Petyr just let out a disgruntled sound. “That bad, huh. You want more bourbon?”
F inally Petyr straightened up and went back to looking like the powerful man he was.
“No. I want a shower.”
“I could always join you.” Grinned Oly as his boss stood up, eyes raking over the older man.
“No, and stop trying to get me to fuck you.”
Oly continued to grin seductively. “Can't blame a guy for trying.”
“I can and I have.” He rounded his desk and took the plastic tray from Oly. “Oh, Tyrion will be here tonight so keep him occupied.”
“Oh I think Ros can certainly handle that, Boss.”
“Good, I'll be in the penthouse.”
With that he backed Olyvar out of his office, locked the door and headed for the large silver elevator.
Catelyn sat in the living room of the Stark house, her head in her hands as she cried, Ned holding her as close as he could, it didn't really comfort her though. Meanwhile Arya and Bran were in the breakfast table in the kitchen trying to tone out their mother's crying and prayers.
“I can't believe Sansa actually ran away.” Said the wheelchair bound boy with dark hair.
“I know.” Answered his sister. “I didn't think she'd actually have the guts... it did get us out of camp though.”
“Arya, Sansa is missing and you're making jokes.”
“Sorry, Bran. It's just... Sansa will come back.” She said with certainty. “I mean where would she go? She has to come back.”
“I don't know, its been almost a week.”
The two oldest Stark, Robb and Jon, chose that moment to walk through the kitchen door, slipping off their coats as they did.
“Bran might be right.” Said Robb reluctantly, a hand running through his red-brown hair. “Sansa can be determined when she wants to be.
“Yeah.” Jon agreed. “Our sister is braver and smarter that we often give her credit for.”
Because of how quiet Sansa tended to be, they all overlooked their sister. Arya was always getting into trouble, Bran needed more help than the others and Rickon was so young, Sansa bled into the background; it wasn't fair but that was what had happened.
“I know I tease her but I never thought she'd run away.” Said Arya with a sigh.
“This isn't your fault, Arya.” Jon was quick to say.
“And none of us saw this coming.” Added Robb. “We'll find our sister, promise.”
Chapter 11: Better Flavours
I'm really sorry but this AU is going on hiatus until November 12th, I know that's like 3 weeks but I will start posting again, promise :-)
The silver elevator pinged and the doors rolled open for Petyr to enter his pristine penthouse, he walked past the piano and over to the kitchen sink where he got himself a glass of water to wash away Lysa. Sansa noticed the ungentlemanly gargling and grabbed her stuffie, Winston, as she rose from the couch. The bear hung loosely from her hand as she padded barefoot over to her Daddy, Petyr set the empty glass down when he noticed his girl, she looked stunning in her teal dress; sinfully short and sleeveless.
“You look sleepy, my love.” He took her into his strong arms.
“No, Daddy. Not now you're here.” She rose up on her toes to kiss him, chaste and innocent. “Can I have my surprise now?”
Petyr chuckled and released his little girl.
“Have you been good for me?”
“Very, Daddy.” She smiled and Petyr found it infectious.
“Then I don't see why not.”
He picked up the tray from behind him on the kitchen counter and handed it to Sansa.
“Lemon cake, my favourite!” She beamed. “Thank you, Daddy.”
She pressed another kiss to his lips and Petyr took the chance to deepen it, his hands gripped her hips and pulled her closer, his tongue slipped across her bottom lip begging entrance that was quickly granted. Petyr only released her when their need for air became too great.
“Eat your treat, Sweetling.” He kissed her forehead. “I'm going to take a shower.”
“But you had a shower this morning.” Sansa looked puzzled.
“I need another one.” He told her a little more gruffly than intended. “Be good, Daddy will be back in a short while.”
She watched him vanish up the stairs towards the bathroom with a look of confusion but she didn't question her Daddy, instead Sansa got a fork from the middle draw in the kitchen and sat down at the glass dining table opposite Petyr's piano to eat her lemon cake. Yummy.
Petyr left his girl and went directly to his shower as though he'd die without it, he could still taste Lysa in the back of his mouth and the feel of her arms around his shoulders still irked him, Petyr was also a hundred percent certain that his Armani suit was going in the fire.
Baelish rested his forehead against the white tiled wall of his shower and sighed the moment he stepped inside, the water tumbled down over his body, he had to get his hands on the late Jon Arryn's company soon because he couldn't take much more of Lysa. Hot water rained down his body and over his face like a waterfall, gentle and soothing, which allowed his mind to go blank. Petyr was always plotting something and the shower had become his one place of peace, somewhere he could shut off, sometimes he even plotted in his dreams.
Just about a week had sailed by since Sansa had chosen to live with him but Petyr hadn't really had time to enjoy her in all the ways he wished and now Lysa had shown up and ruined his day with her stupid... Lysa-ness ! The words crazy, obsessive, annoying and bitch didn't quite cover it like Lysa-ness did.
Petyr scrubbed himself clean but could still taste her. Maybe I could drink bleach, he wondered, no, on second thoughts that's a bad idea. After he clambered out of the shower and dried himself off he set to brushing his teeth but that horrid taste just clung to the back of his palate, the woman was like a curse. It was revolting and Petyr had endured enough, he was pissed. He marched down the stairs in nothing but his expensive black boxers where he found Sansa binning the empty cake container; a happy smile rested on her lips.
“Daddy, are you okay?” Sansa asked as soon as she noticed him.
“Sit on the table.” He growled dominantly.
He was angry and didn't ask again, he simply grabbed her and slammed her down on the glass table with her legs open for him. Something inside Sansa wanted to purr. Almost instantly Petyr dropped to his knees and pulled her panties down, by now Sansa knew exactly what was happening and that sense of want inside her grew stronger. She wore cute little kitten stockings that made him smile, he'd not even tasted her and already she'd cheered him up.
“Be good for Daddy, Sweetling.”
Oh she was very good for him, she moaned loudly as his tongue licked and let out gasps and needy whimpers.
Petyr forgot all about Lysa Arryn when Sansa slipped her fingers into his salt and pepper hair and gripped it tight; her nails scraped against his scalp. When his baby girl came he didn't stop and brought her to climax again quickly, Petyr needed to hear her moan out for him, needed her to beg him.
“Daddy!” She cried out again.
Petyr's erection strained painfully against his boxers, he'd told her they'd wait until she was ready but by the way she was moaning out for him and letting her legs open wider she was and Petyr couldn't wait any longer. The glass dining room table wasn't right for his beautiful baby girl's first time though, nowhere near good enough, so Petyr rose to his feet and lifted Sansa into his arms before carrying her up to his bedroom where he deposited her softly on his purple bed.
The redhead was nervous, but the surge of want between her legs prevented her worry from coming to the surface. For a moment Petyr just looked at her as though taking in a beautiful piece of art or a goddess.
“Oh Sweetling, you're perfect in every way.”
He spoke almost absent-mindedly, as though it had been a thought that had somehow slipped free and Sansa had never felt so special in all her life.
“Thank you, Daddy.” When he stripped off his boxers though her worry finally emerged. “You said we wouldn't-”
“Fuck what I said! I need my baby girl.” With that he was on the bed, settling in the space between her legs and pulling off her clothes as though they offended him... then suddenly he stopped. “Do you want me to stop?”
Petyr cursed himself, Sansa was his red-haired angel, it was his job to protect her and make her happy not rush her into things because he'd lost control. He didn't want to stop but if she asked him to in that moment then he would, he'd never force her.
“No.” The word came out so soft and calm in a whispered tone.
Without another word his lips were on hers, a clash of teeth and tongue that Petyr knew he'd treasure for the rest of his life. Sansa could taste herself on him when their tongues met, a battle for dominance that he quickly won. Petyr pulled off her dress and shoes – little black ankle strap sandals – and threw them off into the corner closest to the door which left his girl completely naked save for her little kitten stockings that Petyr actually rather liked on her; his fingers danced over them.
“You like that, little one?”
“Yes, Daddy.” She gasped, eyes fluttering.
“You've been a very good girl for me, baby, and I've had a rough morning. How about you and I treat ourselves, hmm?”
Baelish's grin was infectious and his voice enticing, Petyr could probably talk a man dying of thirst into handing over his last bottle of water if he wished.
“I can smell how fucking wet you are baby girl, and I know it’s all for me.”
He pressed himself against Sansa and she almost forgot how to breathe, Petyr's hips thrusting teasingly against her opening, he fisted a handful of Sansa's luxurious red hair and pulled back hard enough for her to let out a moan; she'd never felt anything like this before and she wanted more. Suddenly he grabbed her thighs and pulled her to him forcefully causing her breasts to bounce ever so slightly.
“When you cum I want you to scream for me. Scream so loud your mother knows I'm fucking you.” Petyr whispered in Sansa's ear before nipping at it.
He forced his lips on Sansa in a hard, possessive kiss. She made a small sound somewhere between a whimper and a purr, her hands went to his shoulders desperately. Petyr kissed and nipped his way down the young redhead's body where he soon reached her breasts and took a nipple between his teeth which forced a moan from her parted lips. Sansa was his and Petyr wanted – no needed – to mark her, he left purple and red bite marks across her breasts and down her stomach. Marks that would always remind her of him, marks that would remind Sansa how much she wanted and needed him. Marks that told the world she was his little girl, his Sweetling. Gods he made her feel so good and he'd barley even done anything to her.
She watched as Petyr reached into the night stand and pulled out a condom and mourned the loss of him when he leaned back to roll it onto his length.
“Relax Sweetling.” He wore a loving smile. “The more you tense, the more likely I am to hurt you and we don't want that.” Petyr whispered soothingly and Sansa felt the last of her worries melt away.
The redhead took a deep, calming breath, willing herself to relax.
This was it, one hard thrust and she'd no longer be a virgin, she met his eyes for a moment and knew he'd paused to give her another chance to refuse but Sansa wouldn't, she wanted this.
Finally, finally, Petyr pushed into his Sweetling slowly so that she could feel every inch of his cock as he buried himself inside her. Sansa moaned, her back arched almost against her will. Sansa had expected her Daddy to be large but she'd not quite anticipated just how thick and long he'd be, in that moment Sansa knew that no other man would ever be able to satisfy her like Petyr. He settled both his hands on her hips and forcing Sansa back onto him that little bit further, she gasped as her head fell backwards against the soft pillows. Petyr's thrusts began slow and gentle but soon his need took over and snapped his hips fast and sharp, he set a hard pace using Sansa's hips to pull her back onto him. Sansa could only moan and grip the bed sheets until her slender fingers turned white. Petyr groaned, his hips thrusting powerfully with a satisfying sound of slapping skin. It was true that Sansa had no previous experience with sex but her body seemed to know exactly what to do, and innate knowledge and Sansa let it take over her, she let herself meet his thrusts as she chased after her orgasm. Sansa's blue eyes fluttered shut but Petyr didn't allow it andgrippedher neck to force her to look back at him.
“You keep your eyes on me, Sweetheart. Understood?” He he was breathless.
“... Yes... Daddy.”
Sansa was dangling on the very edge, looking down into the euphoric depths below with her Daddy not far behind her, she wiggled her hips in just the right way, teasing experimentally, and send him into a primal rut, thrusting like his life depended on it. It was then that the redhead grew needier that Petyr flipped them so as he could watch his baby girl ride him, his long and talented fingers gripped her hips leaving tiny little bruises over her porcelain skin, pulling her down onto him, impaling her. Sansa gathered up all her bravery and leaned down to kiss him again, gasping at the new angle and the way her kissed nipples grazed against his chest.
It was then that she could take it no longer and plunged into the smouldering waters of bliss and euphoria her body clamped down around the older man as she rode out her orgasm, pulling him over the edge and into climax with her.
Petyr lay on his back and pulled Sansa down so as she could cuddle into his chest, for a time he just lay there stroking her hair and basking in bliss... or at least he did until his phone started to buzz.
“Ignore it.” She yelped when Petyr spanked her, the sharp noise echoing around the bedroom.
“You don't make the rules, Sweetling.” With that he reached for the cellphone on the night table and answered.
“Boss, are you coming back down or did you fall over in the shower?” It was Olyvar and his usual gleeful tone. “I can come and rescue your perfect naked ass if you like.”
“Olyvar, it disturbs me that you spend so much time thinking about me naked.”
Sansa felt a wave of jealousy pass over her, she didn't want to share her Daddy. He was her's and to prove it she started to press kisses to his chest, a scar lay over it that she'd seen several times before but never had the courage to ask about, now wasn't the time either.
“I'll be back soon, something came up.” Sansa couldn't help but smile, something certainly came up.
Olyvar mumbled something that she couldn't hear. “No you can't know. Now, get back to what I pay you for.” Petyr hung up and threw his phone back to the side table, he watched his girl for a few moments with those stormy green eyes of his. “Is this you trying to tempt me?”
Petyr said nothing, just lay back and let his baby girl explore, Gods she was beautiful.
It had passed eleven o'clock almost half a hour ago and the silvery moon shone through the windows of the Stark manor house and into the living room where Catelyn and her husband sat with their hearts full of sorrow. Cat was crying, she'd not really stopped since Sansa had vanished and all Ned could do to comfort his wife was wrap his strong arms around her.
“ Where is she, Ned?” The redhead sobbed into her husband's chest.
“I don't know, darling.” He was forced to answer, he longed for something else to tell her but until Sansa was found or came home he would only have that one sentence.
“ I knew those girls were a bad influence, they have to know where Sansa is.”
“Cat,” he sighed. “the police have already questioned them. Jeyne and Margaery don't know anything. Sansa will come back. She's sensitive, she just needs... time away, she'll come back.” Ned knew he was clutching at straws.
“ Time away ? From what? Us? We were sending her to camp, she would have had her time away .” Cat's eyes were red and painful.
“My love, we both know Sansa hates it there, they all do... except Bran. We raised a smart girl and so we have to trust that she'll come back soon.” Ned had always been the voice of reason at Stark Manor.
“What if someone did take her? What then?”
“Sansa's things are gone, that Carousel she loves so much too. If someone had taken her that would still be here.” Ned pulled his sobbing wife closer and let his large hands rub soothing circles on her back. “You're scaring yourself, Cat, you need to get some sleep. You'll feel better after some rest.”
Reluctantly Catelyn let Ned take her to bed where she managed to settle into fitful sleep after a few hours.
It hadn't taken a genius to realise that Sansa had started to go stir crazy locked up in Petyr's penthouse so he'd promised that they'd cook together, with police searching for her he wasn't about to let her go outside so cooking seemed like the next best thing. Cooking meat he needed to go shopping for ingredients but it hadn’t taken him very long to work his way through the store and gather up everything they'd need, the line was what slowed him down. It was long slow moving, so much so that Petyr found himself zoning in and out. His steel blue orbs ended up glancing around the large and rather cold building, the walls were a color somewhere between off white and yellow, it was rather disgusting in all honesty, and despite the late hour the place was rather packed. A familiar picture on the milk carton of the woman in front of him caught Petyr's attention, it was his Sansa and he had to admit that even her missing picture was beautiful. Apparently the Stark family now offered a reward, which wasn't surprising, Petyr smiled and wondered if he'd still get the reward after being released from jail; none of that was important though since he had no intention of ever giving up his sweet Sansa.
Finally the line started to pick up some speed and it was soon his turn, items were scanned and packed and Petyr paid before heading out to his beloved Aston Martin. He lit a cigarette, rolled down the window to let in the cool air and just sat there for a moment listening to his stereo while Petyr drummed his fingers against the wheel; the only source of light being the orange glow of his cigarette.
You made a fool out of me
And took the skin off my back running
So don't breathe when I talk
'Cause your hand, it's broke in two
I got a gun for my mouth and a bullet with your name on it
But a trigger full of heartbeat pulling from an empty pocket
The smoke burnt his throat pleasantly as the night air cooled and caressed his skin. When he was done Petyr threw the cigarette butt out the window and pulled out of the parking lot, engine purring as he raced through King's Landing. Petyr had gotten about three quarters of the way home when he'd received a phone call demanding that he got his skinny ass to Casterly Rock, the Lannister's manor house. He'd sighed knowing his little girl was going to be angry with him and then turned back towards the home of Tywin Lannister.
When he got there the staff ushered him quickly into Tywin's office where he found the man himself, Varys and the Boltons sat waiting for him. Varys, Petyr could cope with, they often spared and tried to out cryptic one another but the Boltons – especially Ramsay – Petyr always had the urge to kill; preferably with a blunt instrument.
“Baelish, it's about time.” Grumbled Tywin from behind his large mahogany desk as Petyr fell into his chair.
“Sorry, but my car is worth more to me than you waiting for-” He looked at his watch. “nine and a half minutes.”
Tywin grumbled again but said nothing more about it, instead he moved onto the reason he'd called them all there.
“I called this meeting because the retched police are on to our import route, I've already had the cargo moved to a different port but according to the officers on my payroll I only just managed to get the drugs moved. They're also suspicious of you, Baelish.”
“The KLPD has been suspicious of me for decades. You know what I'm like, more than three people in a room and I'll start a black market.” Ramsay snorted from the chair beside his father. “I've run a brothel in the middle of the city, right under their noses, for years. They can't touch me.”
“According to my little birds,” Began Varys, the bald man had a habit of being so silent everyone forgot he was in the room and that was how he liked it. “they'll be sending in a pretty young officer by the name of Lucrezia Willbond to have a look around and see what she can see. Here.”
Varys rummaged in the pocket of his grey suit pants before handing Petyr a photograph, Varys had always been old fashioned, he dealt in words and secrets and rarely sent anything using modern technology. The girl was pretty enough with long raven hair and bold grey eyes but to Petyr she was just another annoyance keeping him from his darling Sansa.
“Kill her, Baelish.” Said Tywin in a tone of authority. “Kill her before she even steps foot in The Mockingbird. I want a message sent, I'm miles ahead of them and always will be.”
“We should be doing this!” Announced Ramsay quickly. “The Boltons are your enforcers.”
Tywin glared. “Roose, I suggest you teach your son when to keep his mouth shut.” He turned to Ramsay, the dark-haired man would have lashed out by now had it been anyone other than Tywin who addressed him. “Ramsay, if I wanted blood and body parts everywhere and I would send you but I don't. I want a quick sharp stab to their operation and as much as I detest Baelish I have to admit he's rather efficient.”
Petyr just grinned sarcastically and mock glee.
“Oh, the honour.”
“Shut up, Littlefinger.” Snapped Ramsay before Tywin pulled everyone's attention back to himself.
“On Wednesday afternoon I'll have a new shipment ready for distribution. Bolton, I want your men watching the dock every single second.”
“Of course, Sir.” Nodded Roose Bolton.
The conversation grew boring after that and Petyr started to lose interest, he'd promised Sansa he'd only be gone thirty minutes, an hour tops, but it had gone eleven and she probably thought he'd abandoned her or something.
About twenty minutes later Tywin finally dismissed everyone and Petyr dashed to his car, rushed home and up in the elevator to his penthouse; paper grocery bags rested in his arms. When he stepped out he found all the lights off and Sansa nowhere in sight. He set the bags down on the kitchen island, the ice cream would have melted long ago but he didn't care. Petyr went straight up the stairs and down the long hallway to Sansa's room, inside he could see his Sweetling curled up on her side in bed dressed in another of the Lolita outfits he'd gifted her; Gods she's beautiful. Most of her stuffed toys had been pulled down from the shelves and now surrounded her on the teal colored bed almost like a fluffy wall.
“Hello, Sweetling.” He said softly. “I'm sorry I took so long.”
The second Petyr took a step towards her bed war broke out and stuffies were thrown across the room and into his face. A hippo, giraffe, dragon, unicorn, elephant, fox, tiger and a dozen other animals flew at him leaving Petyr deflecting them until she ran out of ammunition.
“You promised!” She said angrily. “You said we could spend the evening together! You lied!”
Sansa had been so looking forwards to a home cooked meal and a night of just them, she'd been so excited, then worry had set in, if there was anything she'd learnt about Petyr Baelish it was that when he said he'd do something he did it; especially when he'd promised his girl. For a while she'd tried to brush it off, his phone had died that was why he hadn't called, the Aston had broken down but by ten o'clock that had all ended. Worry gave way to annoyance and then slowly anger, she'd fought it at first, Sansa had no right to be angry with him yet anger continued to bubble until all she'd wanted to do was throw something at his smug face. Her sweet evening had turned into a hot pocket and a very mad little girl.
With a sigh Petyr picked up her favourite bear, Winston – who'd been the last thrown at him – and went to her bed and lay down so as his chest was to her back and set the bear down by her head; instantly she latched onto it.
“I know I promised, Sweetling, and Daddy's sorry.” His voice was soft and accented. “It was a work meeting, don't be angry with me baby.” She didn't look at him.
Slowly Petyr brushed a stray strand of Sansa's hair behind her ear and then pressed his lips to her porcelain neck. Sansa continued to pout and that alone made him want to flip her onto her back and bury himself inside her, Petyr resisted though, there was sadness in her eyes – even though he couldn't see them he knew there was – and she had a vice-like grip on Winston. Carefully he tried to roll her over to look at him but she refused.
“We'll cook tomorrow, I promise. Okay?” Reluctantly she nodded. “Good. Can I see a smile, Sweetling?” Nothing. “Come on, for your Daddy.”
Finally he managed to turn her over and tilted her head up so as Sansa had to look at him.
Petyr's hand shot to her throat keeping her in place with a firm hand, a flash of dominance that made Sansa want to purr.
“Oh Sweetling, I know you're upset but you don't yell at Daddy.” He pressed his lips to hers as the grip on her throat loosened. “Now let me see that beautiful smile.”
When she made no attempt to smile for him Petyr decided to bring out the big guns and started to tickle her, quickly he got the smile he wanted and it wasn't long before it broke out into giggling.
“There it is.” His lips met hers again for another chaste kiss. “Now, no more stuffie throwing.”
“Yes, Daddy. Sorry, Daddy.”
“That's okay, Sweetling. Change into something comfortable and come down stairs. You can choose something for us to watch and I think there's enough ice cream left for a bowl, unfortunately the new tub melted. It may be too late for us to start cooking but we can still spend time together.”
The prospect of ice cream and cuddled with her Daddy had instantly brightened her mood. Petyr pressed a final kiss to Sansa's lips and the vanished off downstairs having sufficiently cheered her up.
The stunning redhead stood and stripped off her clothes quickly so she could throw on a pair of little lilac night shorts and a silk black shirt she'd stolen from Petyr to sleep in; it still smelled of him.
When she padded down the stairs she found the man with ash at his temples stood at the bottom with the remote in one hand and a black bowl of chocolate ice cream in the other. Sansa grinned and took both on her way to the couch, she looked for something to watch while Petyr got himself a glass of bourbon and joined her. She chose Silence of the Lambs and sat with her feet in his lap while she ate her ice cream, Sansa had always been a horror and science-fiction fan – much to her mother's dismay – especially when there was a something of a taboo was involved and Petyr just smiled knowing the deep down his girl was as depraved as he was. When the bowl was empty she set it down on the coffee table and cuddled into her Daddy's chest and he wrapped a strong arm lovingly around her keeping her close. Sansa was happy and content, at peace, with his arms around her and she'd not felt that happy in a very long time.
“I love you, Sansa.” He told her when she rested her head against his chest.
“I love you too, Daddy.”
After a short while Sansa fell asleep and Petyr switched off the television with about twenty minutes of the movie left, he gathered the teenager into his arms and carried her upstairs but instead of taking her to her room Petyr turned and went to his own bedroom. He set her down and pulled the black sheets over her porcelain form, Petyr went to get Winston – who she easily grabbed in her sleep – before he clambered into bed and fell asleep with Sansa tucked against his strong chest.

Chapter 13: Demands
Cerulean eyes fluttered open slowly as Sansa returned to consciousness, she sat up in Petyr's bed and looked around for him... but he wasn't there. For a moment she was confused as she cuddled Winston close to her chest, she'd expected to wake wrapped up tightly inside her Daddy's arms but he was nowhere to be seen. As Sansa slipped out of bed in her liliac night shorts and the shirt she'd stolen of Petyr, the redhead glanced at the clock to see it was almost seven, Petyr was an early riser so she guessed he was just downstairs getting coffee.
Easily she left her Daddy's bedroom and padded in her bare feet down the hall to the stairs, if Sansa hadn't been quietly humming to herself and snuggling her bear she'd have heard Petyr talking to someone. Sansa was half way down the stairs when Petyr noticed her, his eyes gave away nothing but he did gesture powerfully for her to get back upstairs, for a second she had no idea what was going on and then she noticed the woman with her back to Sansa. Her Mother. Adrenaline surged through her thin body, she dropped to her knees and scampered up the stairs to hide behind the opaque glass rail that ran the whole of the catwalk. Her lungs pulled in cold air and she prayed desperately that her mother hadn't seen her in the window reflection or something equally fate-like.
“... Petyr, I have no idea what else to do.” Said Catelyn sadly as she turned back to the club owner, tears in her eyes. “The police say she ran away, Robb has looked everywhere for her. She's not with that Jeyne girl or Margaery and Ned asked Joffrey and his mother, she's not with them either.” There was a pause. “What if she's hurt? You don't know her, Petyr, she's sensitive and doesn't think things through. She's just a child. Sansa could be out on the street somewhere with only God to protect her. I'm scared and you're my last hope, Petyr. You... you know people, you could find her. Please Petyr, help bring her home.”
Petyr was silent for a moment and just looked at Cat, she seemed desperate to find her daughter but of course Petyr knew exactly where Sansa was. He could have ended her worries with a single sentence but he'd never let his baby girl go. Petyr also knew Cat was wrong, Sansa did think things through, she was very smart and brave and a far from a child. When she'd chosen to be with Petyr she'd thought about it intensely; Petyr knew her better than her own mother. Long ago Baelish had loved Cat with all his heart but that had long ago ended, it ended the day he found Sansa crying on the staircase, in that moment he'd realised that everything he'd felt for Cat had just been a teenage boy's interpretation of love; Sansa was the real thing.
“Of course I'll help find Sansa.”
Upon hearing him say her name the beautiful young redhead peeked over the black glass railing and down to her mother and Petyr.
“You need to stop worrying so much though, Cat, you'll make yourself ill.”
There was so much care and concern in his voice, Sansa could even see it on his face but she knew it wasn't real. Suddenly his captivating eyes flashed up to hers but there was a flash of unmistakable anger in them which frightened her into ducking down again. Sansa crawled back to her bedroom after that with Winston in tow, she couldn't listen to her mother any longer and she knew Petyr wasn't happy.
Petyr saw her dart off just as Cat turned around but thankfully she didn't spot her daughter and instead quickly turned back to the dark-haired man.
“You'll pray for her, won't you?”
Petyr hadn't prayed once in all his life, even when Hoster Tully had forced him to as the older man said Grace he'd been thinking of other things.
“Of course. Now, go home, I'll do what I can to find your daughter.”
Meanwhile Sansa had crawled under the soft grey covers of her bed in a childish attempt to stay hidden with Winston close to her chest. She'd never expected her mother to show up at Petyr's penthouse, it was above a den of iniquity. Catelyn had never spoken about Petyr, and Sansa hadn't even realised they'd known one another until her Daddy had told her. Sansa lay there in utter silence for a moment and then she heard him growl loudly up the stairs.
Daddy's not happy, her mind said quickly, a rather obvious statement but her brain told her anyway . Heavy footfalls marched up the stairs, almost stomping but she didn't quite know if it was to scare her or if his anger was real ; one could never tell with Petyr Baelish. He entered the room, ripped off the duvet and tossed it to the ground.
“Do you have any idea what you could have done, Sweetling?” His voice was deep and dark. “What would have happened if Cat had seen you?”
“I'm sorry, Daddy.” She told him quickly, eyes downcast.
“You'd better fucking be.” He growled. “You need to be punished. Need to learn to be careful and do as I tell you. This is going to hurt.”
Suddenly Petyr had flipped Sansa onto her stomach, ripped her lilac night shorts from her thin body and pulled her up on all fours giving him a perfect view of her backside . Her heart raced, but not with fear.
“I think fifty aught to teach you, don't you baby girl?” He asked rhetorically as he opened his belt and pulled it loose. “Daddy wants you to count, if you lose count or miss one I'll have to start again.”
The redhead couldn't see her Daddy but she knew he was actually enjoying this. Without warning the belt came down against her rear, the noise echoed around the room and Sansa let out a gasp. It hurt but it wasn't as though he was actually trying to inflict harm on her.
“One, Daddy.” She managed before the belt came down again. “Two, Daddy.”
Petyr watched the red marks from welts with a grin, the sight of her was utterly stunning but he couldn't forget that he was teaching her a lesson.
“Your mother thinks you're innocent and sweet but I know the truth, you're a naughty little girl. My naughty little girl.” He growled possessively.
After fifteen slaps with his belt tears pricked in her eyes, the leather hurt... but she liked it. Her core was wet and ached for her Daddy but her punishment wasn't over, every now and again he'd bring the belt down a little harder over the backs of her thighs forcing her to yelp. Gods he loved that noise. Petyr could feel his body twitch in need of her but she had five more to go, he was so proud that she'd not lost count.
“Forty-five.” Slap! “Forty-six” Slap! “Forty-seven” Slap! “Forty-eight.” Slap! “Forty-nine.” Slap! “Fifty, Daddy.”
Petyr didn't say anything when he was done and Sansa didn't dare move, he threaded his belt back on and clicked it shut. She was glistening wet despite the pain and raised welts, despite the tears. He let out a long sigh then pulled Sansa close to his chest and rubbed at her backside soothingly with one hand while the other brushed tears from her sparkling blue eyes.
“You know why I did that right?” Petyr's voice was much more gentle now, less angry and dominating.
“Yes, Daddy.” She sniffled. “I need to be more careful and do as I'm told.”
“That's my girl.” Petyr pressed a kiss to the top of her head and pulled her close. “If your mother had seen you she'd have taken you away from me, do you want that?” Sansa shook her head quickly against his chest,. There was fear in his voice. Petyr was terrified she'd been taken away from him, that he'd never get to hold her again, and until that moment Sansa hadn't realised just how important she was to him. He loved her. “Neither do I, Sweetling. All I want is for you to be here and happy, I love you. I don't know what I would do with out you, baby girl, I love you.”
“I love you too, Daddy.”
“I'll get you a new stuffy to say sorry for the pain but you have to promise me you've learnt your lesson.”
“I have.” She said quickly, head snapping up to look at him with her best I'll-be-good-daddy look; big blue eyes as she gently bit her lip. “Promise.”
“Good. Now what was it you wanted when you came downstairs?” Asked Petyr as a hand ran through her long red hair. “Pancakes?”
“Cuddles, but pancakes are good too.”
Petyr chuckled and felt her whole body surge with want.
“I'm Petyr Baelish, what my little girl wants she gets.”
Littlefinger had always been an early riser, even as a child which Hoster Tully had been rather pleased with. He'd left Sansa tucked up asleep in bed and gone to take a shower, Petyr wasn't quite sure when he started to hum to himself while the smouldering water caressed his lean body. He rested his forehead against the cold marble tiles for a moment and just let his mind go blank save for the song, a tiny moment of peace... until he felt eyes on him. Petyr pushed open the frosted glass door of his shower and shivered when the cold air rushed in, that wasn't what had his attention though, what caught his meadow green eyes was Sansa sat by the sink swinging her legs back and forth.
“I didn't know you liked Johnny Cash.” She said softly.
Petyr didn't say a single word, just pulled the door too and rinsed the leftover shampoo from his hair. A couple of minutes went by and he could hear her finish the end of the song and couldn't help but smile to himself.
“Come on then, Sweetling.”
He heard a little squeal noise and then her feet hitting the floor as she jumped down from her spot beside the basin and pulled off her clothes then hopped into the shower with him. In an instant she'd snuggled into his chest with a happy purr, his girl was so perfect and soft.
“Do you have to go?” She asked with her face pressed into his chest the water cascaded over her features. “I get so bored up here without you, Daddy.”
“I know, Sweetling.” He told her softly with a kiss to the temple. “But I need to work.”
There was no other word for it, she sulked, and Petyr thought it adorable. With two fingers he tilted her chin up so as their eyes met, bold cerulean meeting stormy green surrounded by hot steam. There wasn't an inch of Sansa Stark that Petyr didn't adore. He kissed her nose then finally got out of the shower and dressed for the day, Sansa just wrapped herself in a towel and watched him slip on his perfectly tailored armour. She followed him down the stairs towards the elevator with a pout, Sansa just wanted him to stay.
“Sweetling, I'll make it you to you later, presents and everything.. I love you.” His lips met hers for a kiss.
“I love you too, Daddy. And my presents had better be big and awesome!”
Sansa knew she sounded ungrateful and like a spoilt brat but she was his little girl, Sansa could be childish every now and again.
“Big and awesome it is.” Smirked Baelish as a hand raked through her wet expanse of red locks.
With another kiss he left his girl and headed for the elevator. She didn't want to be alone again and that childish streak bubbled up again.
“And expensive!” Sansa called out after him. “I want a dog or a tiara or a huge lemon cake!”
“Don't push your luck, baby girl.” Responded Petyr in that warning tone of his and Sansa fell silent in an instant but also shiver with want.
She watched the silver doors slide shut, Sansa knew she'd been pushing things but the redhead was tired of always being the good girl, she wanted to be boisterous and demanding once in a while. In truth she just wanted Petyr, she wanted her Daddy all to herself. No doubt he'd bring her a present before she fell asleep, they both knew he didn't have to shower her with gifts but whatever he presented Sansa with she'd be grateful for simply because he'd put the time and effort into getting it for her. The redhead didn't need expense gifts, she just needed him.
Petyr was only a floor down in his office and Sansa knew she wouldn't see him until dinner, he never came up for lunch on Thursday. Sansa forced herself away from the elevator and instead went to the gargantuan wall of glass, she looked out over King's Landing; huge buildings and birds flying high.
The search for her was still going strong – the news told her that – and she didn't want to be taken from Petyr, but remaining locked up in that penthouse had started to drive her crazy. She was a bird in a cage. Eventually things would settle down and Sansa would be free to do as she pleased with her Daddy. They'd be together.
Sansa didn't want to just sit and watch TV and she didn't much feel like reading, Sansa had always been more of an evening reading. However, the sun was out and with a grin she padded up to her gorgeous bedroom and pulled open her closet. It only took her a few seconds to find the cute little bikini that Petyr had no doubt taken great pleasure imagining her in when he'd purchased it. Sansa changed quickly into the pale yellow fabric and grabbed Winston the bear before looking at herself in the mirror. If my Mom could see me in this she'd have me wrapped up in a winter coat and down to the church before I could say ' holy shit', she kind of liked the look of horror she expected would decorate her mother's face. From her night stand draw she took her pair of D'blanc prose sunglasses and slipped them on before grabbing the first towel she found and padded back downstairs onto the balcony. Sansa hadn't been out on the balcony much since she'd moved in but she'd thought more than once about what Daddy would do to her on that balcony, in that pool.
The balcony was made of wood stained so dark it was almost black encased by a modern yet strangely classical glass fence. Just to the right of the French doors, beside the pool, was the largest barbecue Sansa had ever seen while the left side had been taken up with every seating option Sansa could have ever hoped for. The towel found itself tossed down onto the nearest sun lounger along with her sunglasses but Winston was set down with care and tilted back as though he were sun bathing. S eriously, how rich is he? There was so much wealth everywhere she looked but Petyr didn't seem to care about any of his possessions save for Sansa herself.
In all honesty the crowning jewel of Petyr's penthouse balcony wasn't the fancy barbecue that looked like it was more for show than use, it was the gargantuan – because there really wasn't any other word for it – infinity pool, it really did look like she could just fall right off the edge into the city below. Pure crystal water, perfectly cool and waiting for her to dive in... and that's exactly what Sansa did, she dove in to the refreshing ocean and bliss washed over her. Sansa floated on the surface for a time looking up at the sky's fluffy clouds.
Chapter 14: Ask And Ye Shall Receive
The elevator pinged as the doors rolled open letting Petyr step out into his club, he'd hardly taken a single step before Olyvar appeared beside him holding a clipboard and a blue ballpoint pen, the blonde flashed Petyr a smile but the older man didn't really notice his mind was too focused on cheering his baby girl up; he had left her all alone sulking after all.
“The liquor delivery has finally arrived.” Said Oly as they made their way down the long hallways made up of deep greens and black. “Teiichi is restocking the bar as we speak. The plumbers finished work on the east bathroom a half hour ago and I've now got guys replacing the bathroom floor and painters repairing the walls in Armeca's room. The carpenters should be here in by lunch to put down new flooring in there as well.”
“Good, I knew you had some level of competency in you.” Petyr told him as he straightened his cuff.
“I could have other things in me-”
“Olyvar!” Warned the dark-haired man.
“Okay, fine, I'm sorry.” Oly cleared his throat. “The new cocktail options are ready for you at the bar too.”
“Make the choice for me, I'm sure you've got taste buds. Just nothing that's neon green – neon anything actually – after Azah's last attempt turned to goo I'm not allowing so much as a grasshopper in my club. I'll confirm your choices when I get back.”
“Back?” Oly paused just outside Petyr's office.
“I'm going out, errands to run and all that.”
Baelish didn't wait for a response, he just darted into his office to grab something the blonde couldn't quite see and then left again for the parking lot and his Aston Martin. Oly stood there for a few seconds in puzzlement, Petyr always kept an eye on everything going on in his club, handing off responsibility of anything to Oly was practically unheard of. Littlefinger had a habit of secrecy – it was what kept him alive – but his staff did fine it annoying at times.
Oly headed downstairs to the bar where Azah had set up a good fifteen drinks for the new cocktail menu, he slumped down on a red barstool right beside Ros.
“Where's the boss?”
“At this time of the morning? He's usually chugging coffee like an alcoholic with an open tab and going over the accounts in his office. Something is going on with him, he's been neglecting the club lately and that's not like him. Baelish is usually crazy meticulous.”
“It's a woman.” Said Olyvar assuredly. “The only thing that could distract a man like Petyr Baelicious Baelish is a woman.”
Ros groaned. “What is it with you and trying to get him to fuck you? Baelicious? Seriously?”
The blonde just grinned. “What? He's a conniving and powerful man who'd probably have me tied to a bed before I could say 'please Master'. What's not to love?”
“Thank you for that horrific mental image of you getting fucked by the boss.” The redhead cringed in her seat. “I'm going to be sick, actually just call an undertaker.”
Oly chuckled at that until Azah returned to the bar after helping Teiichi and demanded for someone to decide on he the 'new bloody cocktail menu'.
Petyr browsed through the store knowing his darling girl would be all smiles and love when he got home, especially after he found exactly what he'd been looking for. He grinned to himself knowing to expect a 'best Daddy in the world' mug for Christmas.
Suddenly a short woman with curly hair appeared beside him with a – frankly rather horrifying – grin on her face.
“Are you sure you want that one, Sir?” She asked with a sense of caution. “There is an issue of size and it may be very difficult to control.”
“Yes, I'm sure.”
Night had descended about an hour previous leaving thick clouds blanketed over the sky only letting the full moon peek out occasionally, Sansa liked it, it reminded her of the horror movies she loved so much. The air retained much of the days heat and Sansa found it more than comfortable to sit reclined in the sun lounger with a book, she still wore her bikini but she'd since thrown on a cobalt colored robe just to keep a chill off.
“Sansa? Sweetling?” Everything had been so quiet that Petyr's voice made her jump. “You out on the balcony?”
Petyr poked his head out the doors just as Sansa closed her book and sat it beside Winston the bear, she rose to her feet and flashed him a smile.
“Daddy!” She beamed and instantly filled his arms.
Petyr practically purred. His hands stroked down her flanks then pushed open the thin robe to let him see the little bikibi, hunger flashed in his eyes.
“Mmmm, you're even more stunning than I imagined in this.” That purr almost turned to a growl. Without warning Petyr gripped her pert little backside and pulled her against him as he nipped at her lips. She could feel his slowly hardening interest. “You'll be the death of me, Sweetling.” He whispered into her ear.
That tone of voice, deep and smooth, he smelt of cigarettes and mint, his fingers knew just where to touch and Sansa wanted to melt.
“Play with me, Daddy.” She half pleaded.
“Hmmm,” he hummed, the rumble of his chest only made her want him more. “later, baby girl. I have presents for you, my girl said she wanted gifts and gifts she's got.”
“You don't have to keep getting me things,” She said into his chest as she gripped him tight “you let me stay here with you, that's gift enough.”
Oh how he loved that girl.
“So modest, I like that about you, Sansa. However, I like spoiling you more.” Petyr kissed her forehead. “Come on, baby girl.”
With that Petyr softly tugged Sansa into the penthouse leaving Winston behind to guard her book. They made their way to the glass dining table where a large white, cardboard box waited.
“I believe lemon cake was demanded.” Easily he flicked the box open to reveal a cake larger than her face, I'm going to need a treadmill after eating all that. “Elegant and sweet just like you.”
That little line had her smiling in seconds. He swiped a little drizzle off the top and held it out for his darling girl who quickly sucked his finger clean, it tasted fantastic but Sansa enjoyed the devilish grin on his face more. Petyr paused for a moment just to look at the fifteen – almost sixteen – year old then reached behind the cake box to retrieve a small pink bag with white tissue paper, he handed it over and Sansa looked at him excitedly for a second.
That was all the encouragement Sansa needed, she pulled out the tissue paper letting it tumble to the floor but she dropped the whole bag when she took out a tiara.
“You got me a tiara too?! This is beautiful! I only said tiara because they're pretty and it was the first thing that came to mind.”
Sansa's Daddy took the item from her hands and carefully set it atop her head, the tiara was small and simple with a sense of vintage to it, what with its intricate leaf design. The silver tiara weighed very little and glittered all over, Sansa didn't dare ask if they were real diamonds.
“Sansa, ask and you shall receive... within reason of course.”
Some times she wondered if money actually meant anything to Petyr because if a tiara full of precious stones was considered 'within reason' she dreaded to think of what wasn't. The teen adored Petyr spoiling her but he really didn't need to go to such lengths, she'd have been happy with a new toy... maybe of a Kakapo, those things were cute.
“Oh, I nearly forgot the pièce de résistance.”
What the hell else did I ask for this morning? Sansa really couldn't remember beyond the tiara and she always asked for lemon cake so that wasn't a real surprise. The dark-haired man turned his back on Sansa and went into the still open elevator, she'd not even noticed they were open until that very moment, she couldn't possibly believe he'd gotten her more.
Suddenly her Daddy re-emerged with a tiny ball of fluff in his arms.
“A puppy!” Beamed Sansa in a much higher pitch that she'd intended.
The redhead raced over to him and Petyr quickly handed her the animal knowing he'd likely end up dead if he didn’t. She cuddled the creature close and Petyr couldn't help but smile, he'd made her happy, him and no one else.
“I know you only said you wanted a dog because you were being bratty and demanding but I got to thinking, you're alone up here for hours when I go to work. Even though I come check on you and we have lunch most days, you're getting lonely. Now you have a constant companion.” He tickled the small wolfdog puppy behind the ears. “She's someone you can play with and talk to.”
“Thank you!” She snuggled the little puppy tight to her chest. “What's her name?”
“Sweetling, her name entirely is up to you. Now, upstairs you go and show her all her new toys and her dog bed. Her bowl is already in the kitchen.”
He gestured behind him and Sansa looked to see two beautiful bowls of a dark obsidian like material, absolutely stunning and matched the kitchen almost perfectly.
“How did you-?”
“Get all the way up to your bedroom and back with several bags and a rather heavy dog bed while keeping her from barking and ruining the surprise?” Petyr chuckled. “I'm skilled and conniving, I call it 'skniving'.” Sansa chuckled at that. “She's a wolfdog so you'll have to train her well. Go on upstairs and play. I'll start dinner, lemon cake for dessert?”
She nodded happily then padded off to her bedroom with the puppy in her arms, the happiness almost radiated off her snow white skin while Petyr went to the fridge to start on dinner.
Sansa made her way into the stunningly beautiful bedroom that Petyr had loving decorated just for her and set the puppy down on her bed. Just as he'd said there were several large bags by her bookshelf full of everything and anything a dog could ever want let alone need, Sansa dropped to the floor at the end of her bed and sat cross-legged as she pulled the bags towards herself; the animal watched her curiously.
“Shall we see what he got you?” She asked the puppy with a grin before she dove into a bag. Inside the redhead found several different collar options. “Looks like you've got one for every day of the week. Come on, girl.”
The wolfdog hopped down from the bed and padded over to Sansa happily before easily settling into the gap of her crossed legs.
“Which one, huh?” She gathered up the pile of collars and held one out for the puppy to inspect. “I don't think the yellow would work with all that white fur.”
Sansa set it aside and the animal nudged it away from them with a little paw almost as though she agreed with Sansa's words. The next collar was white with little silver studs, the leather was pretty but she set it aside for the same reason as the yellow one. The redhead grabbed another collar from the selection at random to find it was exactly the same as the previous only in black, she held it up to he puppy's fluff only for her to try and chew on it.
“Not a fan then.” Muttered Sansa as she tossed it to the other discarded collars.
Suddenly the wolfdog pounced onto the plastic bag she'd taken the collars from and started to chew on it, Sansa quickly pulled the dark bag from the animal's mouth only for a missed collar to tumble out, this one was thicker than the others and made of a strong sparkly blue leather the color of Sansa's eyes. Is that why he chose this one? Because of my eyes? It was the sort of color that just made Sansa happy.
“Good choice.” She told the dog before pulling her closer so as she could put the collar on. “There, such a gorgeous little lady.” Sansa paused at that for a moment as she tested the word in her mind. then nodded to herself. “That's it, that's your name, Lady.” The dog barked as though agreeing with her and Sansa tickled Lady behind the ears. “What else did he get you?” Sansa mused aloud.
From the largest bag – in this scenario 'largest' meant bloody gargantuan and extraordinarily heavy – Sansa tugged out a dog bed, it looked almost like a small black leather couch with a dark emerald green pillow for the animal to snuggle up on; it was the sort of thing a Great Dane would have found roomy.
“Where should we put this?”
Sansa couldn't stop smiling, she'd always wanted a pet, she'd have settled for a goldfish but her mother had always insisted Stark Manor was an animal free zone. The teenager had never understood why, seriously what had Cat been so concerned about? Bestiality? The redhead tried not to dwell on that, it wasn't important now, and instead focused on her new best friend and the bed.
Eventually she settled on placing Lady's new dog bed at the end of her own, it fit surprisingly well and fitted in with the color scheme of Sansa's room without having to match perfectly. Lady didn't need any prompting, she just bounded into her new dog bed and quickly settled down, her little fluffy ears flopping about as he snuggled down in the emerald pillow.
There wasn't a doubt in Sansa's mind that she was going to enjoy having the puppy with her. Petyr really hadn't had to go to such trouble for her, no one had ever made the teenager so happy and she felt honoured that Petyr thought her important enough to devote so much attention to. He made her feel special rather than ignored and never good enough, to Sansa, Petyr was a guardian angel.
It wasn't until Lady hopped down from her soft bed and shoved her head into one of the remaining nags causing the material to crinkle that Sansa's mind came back to her. Dazzling blue orbs flashed over to the happy little puppy who'd pulled a brand new orange tennis ball out.
“Is that your ball?”
Sansa asked in an overly excited tone as she grabbed it and waved the ball about causing Lady to bark and bounce about, with a laugh Sansa threw the orange tennis ball off out into the hallway and Lady went charging after it. She called for Lady to bring the ball back which the animal did with a demand for it to be thrown again, Sansa threw it again and the game began.
Chapter 15: RG
Petyr had heard the dog and his darling girl charging back and forth upstairs for almost an hour and he was pleased at the knowledge that the animal would keep Sansa happy and occupied, it would keep thoughts of going back to her parents far from her mind. He'd never let her go, she was his! All his!
While he waited for the rice to cook so as he could finish their Paella the suit clad man removed a tiny red thumb drive from his breast pocket and quickly plugged it into his laptop over on the glass dining table. Petyr bent over the chair rather than actually sitting on it as he loaded up the file in silence save for the rhythmic tapping of keys. He watched as a video started to place of a rather excessively large living space at Casterly Rock, in which sat Joffrey and Ramsay. Most of it was utter crap and irrelevant to his plots but Petyr hadn't gone to the effort of planting a camera in Tywin Lannister's territory for nothing, he skipped through much of the video file until he found what he was looking for; the corner of his mouth lifted in a little smug smile.
“Have you seen the Srarks panicking about where that little redhead bitch of there’s has gotten to?” Asked Ramsay with a chuckle on the recorded video. “It's fucking comical!”
“I know.” Replied Joffrey as he crashed down onto the couch with his back to the camera, that didn't matter to Petyr though, the film had already shown his face and there was no mistaking that annoying voice. “They've got no idea how much of a whore she is. She'll basically throw herself at anything that move and the Starks basically sold her to me... Christ they think we're in love.” He snorted. “Trust me, that bitch won't know what hit her by the time I'm done. Just got to find her first.”
Petyr made quick work of scrubbing the last sentence, it didn't matter that it would show up if a computer forensics expert looked at it, Petyr had 'friends' everywhere. Tywin and the other Lannister's owned most of the police in King's Landing that was true, but Petyr controlled the forensics experts, the security guards and everyone in between, he'd found that was more productive. Petyr saved the new version to his thumb drive and tucked it safely back into his pocket before slamming the lid of his laptop shut. The untrustworthy man went back to the rice and gave it a stir before climbed the stairs and went to his bedroom to lock the thumb drive away in his safe where no one could get to it.
H e could hear Sansa laughing as the dog raced back and forth and sure enough the second he stepped out of his bedroom only for the animal to do her best at knocking him over. Lady charged back to Sansa who was surrounded by empty bags and open bags of toys with a huge grin on her face that warmed his heart.
“Sweetling, dinner is almost ready. Tidy up and come down stairs.” He told her in that soft and gentle tone that was only for her. “Bring her too, she needs feeding.”
“Lady.” Beamed Sansa. “Her name is Lady.”
“Fitting.” Smirked Petyr. “Come on, hurry up.”
He leaned down to press a kiss to her porcelain forehead then vanished off downstairs. When Sansa joined him she'd changed into her pyjamas, Baelish would have been lying if he'd said he hadn't enjoyed raking his eyes up those long pale legs of hers to tiny polka dot shorts and then up over her white t-shirt that read ' Daddy's Girl' in pale pink ... she was going to be the death of him. Lady followed behind her with the orange ball that had quickly become the pup's favourite.
“You made Paella. I love Paella.” Sansa looked down sadly. “Mom never made it though because Rickon is allergic to shellfish.”
“I know.” He said while spooning fluffy rice and prawns into white bowls for the both of them, by now she really shouldn't have been surprised by the things he knew about her. “Come on, I have something to show you.” He picked up the two steaming bowls and headed off towards the elevator. “Bring her bowl, wine and the glasses would you please, baby girl.”
S he replied quickly with a sure Daddy, and grabbed everything before following him into the mirrored elevator, Sansa watched him swipe his keycard and push a button marked 'RG'. She'd wondered about that button ever since she'd first stepped foot in Petyr's private elevator and all but broken in to his penthouse; that felt like a lifetime ago. No one said a word as the elevator rose towards the roof, Sansa couldn't help but snuggle into his side while Lady sat at her feet, Petyr wore one of those smirks of his and she knew that whatever he had to show her was going to be good.
Finally the doors rolled open and Sansa gasped as her cerulean eyes went wide. Suddenly the letters all made sense, before her in all its wonder was the most beautiful roof garden she'd ever seen. The Mockingbird Club building was almost 'Z' shaped and lined by a eight foot light wooden fence on all sides save for the one that looked out towards the ocean which seemed to be the garden's prime backdrop. Old fashioned street lamps had been dotted about providing soft glowing balls of magical light setting the garden apart form the other bland buildings. Raised flowerbeds lined the tall fence filled with every color imaginable, small shrubs decorated large patches of mown grass and Sansa knew it would be beautiful in the sun light. The garden's crowning glory though was the ornate gazebo dead centre of the 'Z' shaped rooftop.
The man with ash at his temples grinned to himself as he left the elevator to set the bowls down on the table inside the gazebo while Lady bounced off to the grass with her ball, that puppy had a hell of a lot of energy. The redhead stepped out of the elevator finally but her eyes continued to look around in utter amazement and awe, she'd never seen anything so stunning . Eventually Petyr was forced to actually grab hold of the dog bowl from Sansa and set it down on the gazebo steps for Lady to eat.
“This is amazing!”
“Thank you, Sweetling. Come and eat.”
Petyr took the bottle of wine and the two glasses from his girl and easily guided her over to the table where he set both bottle and glasses down . Baelish pulled Sansa into his strong arms, he tucked a loose strand of red hear behind her ear and pressed his lips to hers; her hair smelt of coconuts and nearly had him purring. She could see tomatoes growing off to her left and... is that an orange tree? Petyr Baelish was many things, cunning, extraordinarily well dressed, not afraid of being bad, brothel owner, she'd never expected him to have a roof garden, especially one so well cared for.
“Lady will need somewhere to run around, so you can come up here whenever you wish. I'll get you a keycard tomorrow. I don't know why I didn't let you come up here sooner.” He kissed her neck. “I'm sorry, my love.”
“No!” She spun around in his arms and beamed up a him. “You're fantastic, Daddy!”
Lady scraped her bowl across the gazebo steps but the sounds was practically ignored.
“You're too kind to me, Sweetling.”
Of course Petyr hadn't just forgotten to show her the garden, no one could just forget that. In truth Petyr had kept the garden a secret from her, not to spite her, but so as he could use it when Sansa started to doubt. She'd grown lonely and had Petyr left her that way she'd have started to hate him, but this way Sansa had grown sad and lonely and then Petyr had come alone, given her Lady and a beautiful paradise all of her own. He'd conned her into loving him more.
“I'll always be kind to you, your my Daddy.” Sansa pressed her lips to his in a chaste but loving kiss. “You're my hero.”
Hero? We've gone from stalker to hero now? Petyr chuckled within his head. And in all honesty I'm more of an anti-hero.
“Oh you are perfect, my little girl. Now come eat before it gets cold or Lady decides to be a naughty puppy and help herself.”
She nodded softly and let him guide her to the table and pulled her chair out for her to sit down. He easily poured her a glass of wine and handed it to her like Hades offering Persephone the pomegranate, with a smile , one of those real smiles only Sansa ever got to see. Sansa took the glass of Rioja red with a quiet 'thank you' and Petyr couldn't help but just lean back in his chair and look at her, Catelyn had thought Sansa sweet and innocent but Petyr knew the truth, knew how dangerous she really was... and she was his, forever. His Queen, his beautiful and vicious little demon.
“Daddy, why do you have this?” She asked jolting him out his depraved thoughts, while gesturing to everything around her.
“Doesn't really look like something I'd have, does it?” He grinned before talking a bite of Paella. Petyr didn't make a habit of revealing details about himself but Sansa was to be his Queen, the only one worthy of being his equal. Petyr took a breath. “My Mother died when I was very young. The only thing I really remember about her is that she loved to cook, always had me in the kitchen with her. Truth be told I doubt she trusted me to be left unsupervised.” He breathed out a laugh at that. “She grew all her own herbs and when I came here I had the building renovated, Christ was it ugly when I purchased it. I found this place in a state of absolute disrepair so I brought a landscaper in and one thing let to another until it turned into this.”
He gestured to the garden around them before taking another bite of his meal. Petyr actually found it rather refreshing to have an honest conversation even if it was far outside of his comfort zone. Petyr had never told anyone about his mother, always kept his past close to his chest, especially his mother: she'd died when he was six. Sansa wasn't like everyone else in the world though, she wouldn't take that information and twist it into a weapon against him, he didn't have to lie to her or hide parts of himself. Sansa didn't know how to play the game but he was determined to teach her. Petyr's mind returned to him when his redhead hummed with pleasure at the taste of her Paella, the flavours danced on her tongue; Lady barked.
“I'm sorry you remember so little about your mother.” She told him after a while which Petyr hadn't expected. There was an awkward pause, hardly there but noticed. “Explains why you're such a good cook. This is delicious.”
“Good, and thank you. My mother would have liked you.”
O f course Petyr didn't actually know if that was true or not but it made his girl smile so he didn't really care one way or the other. The two ate their meal and sipped at their wine until the bottle had almost entirely depleted, they chit-chatted about this and that, what Sansa had done all day. For a while it was almost like they were a normal couple, like he'd not stalked her since the age of ten and she wasn't a teenage girl trying to escape her smothering family. Lady eventually tired herself out and settled down by Sansa's feet with her chin rested on the orange tennis ball, only getting up when Petyr and Sansa moved to the cushioned wooden bench over by the gas fire pit. He pulled her to sit in his lap and just held her for a long time, breathed in the scent of her hair and the softness of her smooth naked thighs. It didn't take long for his girl to doze off against his chest, her breathing levelled out and she rested her full weight against him, he could have done just about anything to her in that moment had he wished but all Petyr wanted was to hold her close.
A s time passed by Littlefinger's mind slowly drifted off to Cat and how worried she must have been about her daughter's absence, probably believed the Devil was trying to corrupt her. Cat had always been a strong woman – dangerous when she wanted to be – and that was part of the reason he'd loved her as a child but her families religious practices had never made that much sense to him. The Devil hadn't tried to corrupt her, Petyr wasn't the Devil, he'd shown Sansa another side of herself... and she'd liked it. Catelyn would see her daughter again of course, that had to happen no matter how against it Petyr was but there was no need to worry about any of that for some time yet. Sansa was all his.
When a chill set in and the glittering stars were covered over by a thick blanket of dark clouds Petyr carefully picked his depraved little girl up bridal style – and oh wasn't that a naughty little idea – and carried her to the elevator slowly.
“Lady, come.” He ordered the animal in a dominant tone, happy when she obeyed.
He could see the dog wasn't going to be too difficult to train and seemed as though would be fairly well behaved, which Petyr was mightily pleased about.
The mirrored elevator travelled back down two levels to roll open at his penthouse and Petyr made short work of carrying his darling Sansa up the stairs with the puppy padding along behind, the neon tennis ball still held tightly in her mouth. Baelish set her down on her canopy bed and pulled off her sandals before he tucked her up and pressed a kiss to her forehead.
“Sleep well, baby girl.”
In her sleep Sansa reached out and pulled Winston close. It took him a moment but Petyr eventually managed to get Lady to set the ball down and curl up in her new dog bed at the end of Sansa own, then left the room to change for bed. His perfectly tailored suit was shed and replaced with a simple pair of sleep pants made of a dark grey fabric, but just as he took his watch off and pulled the covers back his phone rang; Petyr groaned. He looked down to the caller ID which read 'Prodigal Son', that was all he needed but at least it wasn't Tywin who showed up as 'Golden Lion'. Almost everyone in his phone had a little nickname attached instead of their real one just for his own amusement.
“Yes, Jaime?” Said Petyr as soon as the dark phone was against his ear.
“Father has called a meeting. Nine o'clock tomorrow morning, don't be late and be prepared to kill something.”
With that Jaime hung up leaving Petyr stood there in silence. Someone – probably Cersei, not that he was bias at all – had fucked up and now Petyr had to fix it. Oh what fun. Petyr dropped the phone down onto his night table beside his watch and flopped down into bed, he'd deal with their shit in the morning.
Chapter 16: Everything
This chapter was originally going in a whole other direction but I think I actually like this better.
Nine o'clock sharp the next morning saw Petyr walking into Tywin's office with a cardboard cup of coffee in one hand.
“Alright, what's the 411 on the 911?” He grinned in jest.
“Shut up and sit down!” Growled Cersei from beside her father at the table, always such the high and mighty queen of everything.
Jaime entered the room not a moment later and took the seat between Roose Bolton and his sister while Petyr opted to sit beside Varys as usual, the two men didn't like one another but the hated everyone else in the room more.
“Father won't be a moment.” Jaime told the group some hummed in acknowledgement while others nodded.
They were an odd collection of people but Tywin had scouted them out of necessity to further his empire, the words 'Mafia' or 'mob' weren't quite right to describe the Lannisters, yes they ran drugs and weapons and everyone feared their name but they didn't have the same stigma attached to them unlike other crime families. Tywin gave the orders while appearing like a perfectly legitimate businessman, Jaime handled the day to day issues while Cersei caused more than she solved. Tyrion - as the families shame – spent most of his time drunk in Petyr's club, a shame really because he was the brightest one amongst them; Baelish had no doubt that man could talk a hungry dragon out of eating him. Pycelle had been there longer than any of them and was hated by all for his constant blathering, however it did come in handy when in court, Pycelle dealt with the legal issues. Varys had eyes everywhere – his 'little birds' he called them – if there was something worth hearing about Varys knew it first and could make quick work of either burying the information or twisting it in his favour. Roose and Ramsay Bolton were enforcers, thugs that thought they were more important that they really were, Roose could be easily controlled but Ramsay was a psychotic wildcard. Then there was Petyr Baelish who had always been looked down on by everyone in that room save for Varys who knew better than to underestimate the club owner. Petyr did a multitude of things – he'd gone out of his way to make himself indispensable – he kept an eye on the money, moved product around, owned all the crime scene investigators and forensics experts so as he could hide any evidence before it even got to the cops... actually he often wondered if he ran Tywin's kingdom for him.
Petyr sipped at his coffee for a few minutes as they all waited for Tywin in an annoyed silence – not awkward, just a room full of people who'd happily kill one another - and only when the last few dregs of his drink were gone did the Lannister patriarch finally enter and slump down into the chair at his desk.
“As we know,” began the older man in a deep voice “Oberyn Martell as been a thorn in my side for some years now, so far he's been tolerable annoyance.” Petyr and Tyrion actually found Oberyn rather pleasant. “However, he's going too far, he wants to try and take over King's Landing which of course I won't ever allow. This is my territory, Martell can fuck off back to Dorne where he belongs or he can die.”
Cersei grinned at that prospect.
“He's already made contact with me regarding the selling and distribution of his product.” Said Petyr.
“And you told him to take a hike?” Questioned Jaime as he shuffled in his chair.
“But of course.” Petyr grinned. “I'm loyal to the Lannister family.”
“I very much doubt that, Baelish.” Cersei bit out.
She was right, Petyr hated the Lannisters a partnership with Martell would have been far more profitable and made life much easier for him... that was why Petyr had taken Oberyn up on his offer; he wasn't dumb enough to tell them that though.
Petyr said nothing, just smiled at the dangerous blonde.
“Quiet your bickering!” Demanded Tywin which put a quick end to Cersei's threats and complaints. “Varys, Littlefinger, I want his import route found and shut down by Friday.”
Varys and Petyr spoke in almost perfect unison.
“I'll get right on it.”
“Good.” Tywin rested his elbows on his mahogany desk and laced his fingers into a pyramid. “Now, to the real reason I called you all here. Baelish, you're whores work for you... I don't like that,” Petyr raised an eyebrow “I've decided to bring in some more exotic girls from Essos, a few even from Yi Ti. They'll work for me but don't worry, you'll get a cut for supplying the location, no point in me setting up a brand new brothel when I already have yours.”
Cersei grinned ecstatically as her father spoke and it took all of Petyr's self-control not to launch over the table and smash her head against the stone floor, his eye twitched. The man with ash at his temples bottled up all the anger and urge to murder someone and instead nodded slowly.
“If that is what you wish, truth be told Armeca and a few of the others are getting a little stale.”
“It is. They'll be here by the end of next month.”
Tywin turned his attention to Jaime and the conversation went on from there for a while Petyr took in all the reliant information without really listening to any of it, he'd sort through it later. It wasn't overly important to him that his whores had a job but Petyr had gone to great lengths to keep them happy and perfectly content to supply him with any information he wanted, needed or might have found even mildly interesting. That brothel was his and there was no way in hell he was going to let Tywin fucking Lannister rip it out from under him just so the man could piss him off and make a few extra bucks! Christ, he was going to enjoy screwing the Lannisters over!
The shiny elevator doors rolled open and Petyr stomped off to find Sansa sat cross-legged on the black marble kitchen island with Winston cuddled in her arms and Lady curled up on the floor waiting for him.
“You're late for lunch, I was waiting.” She gestured to two plates of food behind her. “Where have you been Daddy?” Sansa asked innocently, a tone designed to tease him but Petyr was too angry to be teased.
He didn't say a word, not a single one, he was seething; how dare Tywin try to take over his brothel! Petyr grabbed hold of Winston and threw him off to the floor then grabbed hold of Sansa uncaring of her outrage, with ease Baelish threw her over his shoulder and stormed upstairs. She let out little demands to be put down but Petyr didn't hear them just marched into his bedroom and threw her down on the bed forcefully, he quickly kicked the door shut behind him to keep Lady out before he returned to his girl.
Sansa had confusion in her eyes but not fear, she could never be scared of her Daddy, she'd never seen him so angry... she sort of liked it. Petyr crashed down onto the bed over her and pressed his lips to hers in a hard kiss, he'd always kissed her like she was his sweet little angel but this kiss was a pure reminder that she belonged to him. He reached into the night stand draw when the kiss broke to pull out several long ribbons the color of blood, before she could even process that he'd moved Petyr had rocked back on his haunches and grabbed hold of her legs. With sudden dominating force he flipped her onto her stomach and pressed Sansa into the bed.
“Quiet!” He growled.
Petyr ripped off her skirt and panties in one smooth motion but left her stockings in place. Sansa tried to push herself up and look at him but her Daddy pushed her back down and snared her wrists in the thick ribbon, Sansa didn't complain just let him bound her to the bed tightly; he'd never been so rough with her and she wanted more. Her Daddy was filled with an anger that bordered on rage and if this was how he took out his frustrations she was more than willing to let him. She heard him reach into the night stand again for a condom and then he slapped her ass hard, she could almost hear the grin that coated his lips as he watched the large red welt form on her porcelain backside; Sansa gasped.
Petyr could see she was wet and it only made him want her more, his cock ached and begged for release as he shed his pants and took himself in hand to roll the condom on. If anyone were to walk in at that moment they'd probably jump to the conclusion that he was abusing a fifteen year old girl but Petyr needed this and Sansa was a bad little girl. He ran a calloused hand down her spine and grinned when she pushed her hips back in search of her Daddy. Petyr didn't need anymore encouragement and slammed into her wet heat then set a harsh pace, his thrusts were rough and desperate; this was fucking not the tender love he usually showed his Sweetling. Baelish grabbed hold of Sansa's hips pulling her back onto his hard member. Gods she was beautiful.
“Ahh, Daddy!” She gasped when her arms gave way and her face pressed into the pillows.
Petyr grabbed her hair and pulled her back forcing her back to arch almost painfully.
“Say it again!” He ordered in a deep tone.
“Daddy!” She cried as Petyr tugged harder on her long red locks, it hurt but soon had her purring with want.
Sansa was close he could feel it, such a needy little slut for Daddy, his mind growled.
“You close, Sweetling?” Thrusting had left him breathless. “Hmm, you want to cum?” She nodded frantically, or at least as well as she could with Petyr's vice-like grip on her hair. “You're going to have to beg, beg for Daddy to let you cum.”
His thrusts were hard and fast, Sansa could hardly think let alone form sentences.
“Please Daddy can I – oh God – cum?” She begged, voice muffled a little by the green pillows. “Please, Daddy, please!”
“No, not good enough.” Petyr groaned as his own body started to plead for release.
“Please!? I can't... please... please Daddy!” Sansa couldn't think any longer. “Please Daddy, I'll be good, I'll do anything!”
“Alright, cum for me, baby girl. Cum for Daddy.”
And she did, hard. Sansa slipped into the world of orgasmic bliss amid a hurricane, she couldn't think, couldn't speak just felt herself scream out in pleasure as her body tightened around him. The redhead's body went limp and she finally collapsed fully against the warm sheets, body convulsing euphorically.
Petyr slipped from his girls inviting core, easily ripped off the soiled condom and tossed it into the bin not too far from his bed. Sansa had collapsed against the bed but her arms were still held up by the strong red ribbons, suddenly he wished he had a camera, she was so beautiful laying there coated in a thin layer of sweat, her body wriggling as she came down from her high.
Petyr unbuttoned his shirt and threw it off in the same direction his pants had gone then carefully untied his baby girl from the bed kissing each wrist to sooth away some of the pain. Baelish pulled her to his chest, both of them still panted but he didn't care, he needed his darling Sansa close.
“You okay, Kitten?” Asked the man with moss colored eyes once he'd kissed her forehead gently. “Daddy didn't hurt you too much did he?” There was genuine care in his voice.
“... No... Daddy.” She panted into his chest a finger softly traced the bottom of the long scar that blemished it. “But what upset you so much?”
Petyr sighed, he'd forgotten about that, she'd made him forget about that.
“It's fine, Sweetling, just a bad day at work is all. Nothing for little girls to worry about.”
“You know you can tell me right?” Sansa suddenly sounded very adult and forced Petyr to look down at her, their eyes met. “I'm not a kid, I'm your-” She trailed off for a second with confusion in her cerulean orbs. “What am I to you? Not just your little girl but really, what am I? Girlfriend? Play thing?” The last one was said sorrowfully.
Petyr didn't like the term 'girlfriend', never had, it sounded childish but she was much more than a play thing to him.
“Oh my sweet girl.” He cupped her cheeks and tilted her head up to lock their eyes again. “You're mine, you're important and perfect. I've never liked the word 'girlfriend' and I think I'm too old to be considered your boyfriend but yes, that's what you are. My baby girl, my Kitten, my Sweetling.” Petyr softly pressed a kiss to her plump lips, chaste and gentle. “I've loved you for so long, you're the one thing I care about other than myself. You're my everything, Sansa.”
He meant that, he loved her.
Sansa had never felt remotely important to anyone before, just a disappointment, but to Petyr she was everything and she knew it was true. Petyr had followed her for years, built her a room tailored to her tastes, sent her such lavish gifts just to make her happy. Yes, Sansa was his everything.
“I love you, Sweetling.”
“I love you too.”
“Good.” Petyr pressed a kiss to her forehead again and pulled her closer. “What do you say to one of those horror movies you love so much, I'll make popcorn.”
“Don't you have to go back to work?” She asked softly.
“I own the place, I can do what I want. There's ice cream too if you want it.”
“I do and okay. I love you, Daddy.”
Petyr grinned and pressed their lips together in a loving kiss.
Chapter 17: Midnight Gifts
Petyr lay in bed for a moment after their coupling and telling Sansa she was his everything, he just watched as she pulled on her clothes and straightened her hair before bouncing off out the room with a huge smile. Baelish just stared up at the white ceiling as he sorted through thoughts of what Tywin Lannister was attempting to do to his club, after Sansa he didn't have the energy to be angry, knowing his girl could get impatient pretty damn quickly he hopped out of bed and threw on a pair of dark green sleep pants, his shirt was utterly crumpled where he'd not bothered to take it off so Petyr just threw it in the hamper before following his angel downstairs.
Sansa had already sat herself down on the couch with Lady curled up next to her searching through the movies with silent glee. When he'd said he would 'make' popcorn he'd really meant open a bag of that overly sweetened toffee covered stuff Sansa called popcorn and tip it into a bowl; Baelish had always preferred savoury over sweet.
Petyr handed her the glass bowl as he sat down and she instantly cuddled into his naked chest, practically in his lap, and hit play. It wasn't like one would imagine watching scary movies with a teenage girl, she didn't hide behind a pillow or scream when someone jumped out, Sansa loved figuring out who the killer was and why; she was playing the game and didn't even know it. Her Daddy never watched the movie, he always watched Sasna curled up on his lap, the way her lips curled upwards ever so slightly when someone died – especially the stupid ones – or how her eyes lit up when the innocent little girl character turned out to be nuts and on the killer's side. That was when Petyr saw through her mask of being a good Christian girl, of being what her mother had pushed her into being. Sansa had never belonged with Cat and Ned, she belonged with Petyr, with his darkness and cunning.
Once she'd finished her popcorn – thank God I have her the small bowl – Sansa set the empty glass bowl down on the coffee table and sat fully in Petyr's lap so her back was to his chest. He couldn't resist brushing her long red hair over her shoulder and kissing her pale neck, such soft skin. Neither spoke as the movie played through just sat in peaceful silence save for Lady's snores, Petyr snaked his arms around her and the two just enjoyed a moment of them, no cunning or plots, or Tywin, just them.
After breakfast Sansa sat on the black leather couch so as she could watch cartoons with Lady and Winston while Petyr dressed upstairs. Lady snuggled further into Sansa's left leg when her show finished and the news took over, none of what the news reader said seemed overly important to her and then she saw her own face flash up on the screen; that got her full attention.
Today marks two months since fifteen year old Sansa Stark went missing from her home in Winterfell, a large village just to the north of King's Landing. The teenager was last seen late on the twelfth by her parents when they bid her a goodnight. The next morning her mother – Catelyn Stark – found her daughter's bed empty. Police first believed Sansa to have run away but theories quickly changed to abduction after several discoveries made by police in her room, most obvious was that even though many of Miss Stark's possessions were gone, none were keepsakes or overly important Sansa herself. According to Missus Stark the first item her daughter would have take would have been her Bible which was kept in her bedside table-
Sansa scoffed, did her mother know anything about her? She'd only taken what was important to her, surly Cat couldn't have been that oblivious. He reporter continued and the redhead turned the volume up a few notches.
- Police also discovered footprints outside Sansa's window made by a man that Police have ruled out being those of any of the Stark men. After two months a ransom has not been made and Police appear to have reached a dead end-
Suddenly the television shut off which made Sansa jump, she looked over her shoulder to see Petyr toss the remote back down beside her and pull on his his perfectly tailored Armani suit jacket. Why did his suits turn heron so much? Maybe it was the extra authoritative layer to his Daddy persona or it could have been something else entirely, either way it made her weak at the knees.
“You shouldn't upset yourself so much, Sweetling.” He said while brushing non-existent creases from his sleeves.
“I'm not upset, Daddy, I'm annoyed.” Petyr leaned down on the back of the couch. “She's my Mom and she doesn't know anything about me! I only took what I cared about. I get that I'm the eldest and that with Arya being so much trouble, Rickon being so young and Bran's disability that me, Robb and Jon never got as much attention.” She sighed. “And I know that I was meant to be the poster child, the good one but as I grew up I just felt pressured to be something I wasn't and then I felt guilty for not being it. I didn't want to go to Church constantly and be in a choir. I wanted to see my friends and listen to Marilyn Manson without being told he was the Devil, I wanted to dress to reflect who I was not who they wanted me to be.” She sighed a again but Petyr just listened quietly. “Father was better, Sansa and I had gone on about getting our ears pierced for ages but Mom wouldn't let us. When she went to visit Aunt Lysa Father took us to get it done, Mom was furious. I miss my Father.”
Petyr rounded the couch and sat down the second he heard that, couldn't have his angel getting home sick, Petyr's penthouse was her home now. Almost instantly he had Sansa cuddled into his lap.
“Do you want to go back?” He asked softly.
“No! No, I want to stay with you.” Sansa snuggled herself into Petyr's chest, her arms wrapped tight around his neck. “I'm sorry.”
“You never have to be sorry, Sweetling.” His voice sounded calm and loving but she couldn't see the way his eyes had darkened; now he had her Petyr would never let Sansa go. “It's perfectly normal for you to miss your family.
“I don't want to go back. This is home now, with you and Lady, I'm happy here.”
Petyr smiled at that and pressed a loving kiss to her forehead. Sansa was well and truly his.
“That's my good girl.”
“I'm sorry my Mom came to you about finding me. I didn't know she would.”
Petyr's chest was so warm and inviting, so comforting.
“I didn't think she would so quickly. I thought I'd be her very last option, when she was desperate.”
Baelish didn't like this topic of conversation, he'd already established his girl didn't want to leave, they were done, nothing else needed to be said about it. Time for a subject change.
“How about we discuss something nicer?” Petyr tucked a stray strand of red hair behind her left ear with a lowing smile. “It's your birthday in three days, the big sixteen. What would you like? Anything at all.”
“I really don't know. You got me so much already, I feel spoilt.” She replied softly.
“Good.” Littlefinger chuckled. “Mission accomplished.”
“A new book perhaps, I like Edgar Allan Poe but Mom always said he was too depressing and went against the idea of heaven.”
That sounded just like Cat but Petyr said nothing on the subject.
“Poe it is, what else?”
He'd shower Sansa with riches for the rest of her life, cover her in diamonds and gold. She was all his.
“Daddy, I have everything I could ever want and more. I really have no idea what else there could be.”
“Hmm, well, just think about it. I like spoiling you, baby kitten.” Petyr pressed his lips to hers in a chased kiss. “I need to go to work. Love you.”
Petyr rose to his feet and headed to the elevator while Sansa hopped up onto her knees and watched him over the back of the couch.
“Could you get Lady some more of those treats she likes, please Daddy.” Sansa asked sweetly as he swiped his keycard.
“You can't have given her all of them already.” She just smiled at him. “Fine, but don't spoil the dog, she'll get sick or worse... entitled.”
Sansa chuckled at that. “Okay, thank you. I love you, Daddy.” She called out as he stepped onto the elevator.
“I love you to, Sweetling.” He replied just before the doors rolled shut leaving Sansa to wonder what to do for the day.
It would be some time before Tywin could get his new whores into King's Landing to replace his own so Baelish didn't have to start panicking just yet. He wanted to focus on his angel's birthday and after a few weeks of searching had come up with something she'd adore, Petyr could give her everything under the sun but he knew what she wanted most and so after a little planning he'd decided to give it to her.
He'd returned to the penthouse later than usual and found his girl tucked up in her bed with Winston snuggled to her chest while Lady slept in her dog bed at the end of Sansa's own, she looked like an angel when she slept, all porcelain skin and flowing red hair. Beautiful. She didn't have a care in the world and Petyr couldn't help brushing a hand through her long red locks to wake her slowly.
“Daddy?” She asked in a sleep filled tone.
“Yeah, baby kitten, it's me.” Petyr sat down on the edge of her bed as Sansa rubbed sleep from her eyes with little fists then prompt herself up on her elbows.
“I didn't think you were coming back tonight.”
“I had a few things to sort out, Sweetling, but I'm done now. All yours.” He smirked. “I have something for you, an early birthday present.”
“Really?!” The redhead beamed.
From the inside pocket of his suit jacket he took a small black envelope and held it out for her to take. Sansa pushed herself into a seated position and took the envelope excitedly, he may not have needed to keep getting her things but there was no way she'd refuse one. Petyr watcher her open it with eager anticipation, at first she looked at the photograph with confusion her brow furrowed.
“Daddy, why did you give me a picture of a cabin?”
“Because, Sweetling, this is your present. You want to go outside, I know that but I also know that if you do someone will recognise you and everything we have here will fall. However, I've found somewhere I can take you where no one will be around to recognise you and you can be outside for a few days.” He shuffled further onto the bed. “This, my sweet, is your present, your own slice of heaven tucked away in the forest. No cars, no skyscrapers, just endless expanses of trees and animals by the lake. Would you like to go, Sweetling?”
“Yes!” Sansa all but threw herself into Petyr's awaiting arms and snuggled her face deep into his neck so as she could breath him in. “Yes, I do! I really do!”
Petyr wrapped his arms tightly around the redhead's waist, she was so grateful, so loving and Petyr soaked it all up like a sponge. Baelish had been forced to pay through the nose for that cabin – cabin was somewhat of an understatement, it had been built as a luxury escape – but Petyr just had to have it despite the owners not wishing to part with it. The cabin looked out over Praise Springs Lake about two hours west of King's Landing and was so deep in the forest no one would have stood a chance of stumbling across Sansa. And he couldn't resist it, the cabin had been christened Praise View on account of the lake and since praise was what Sansa's name meant he thought it fitting. I wonder if Cat purposely looked for names with some sort of link to religion? More than likely.
Petyr would take Sansa to the cabin, he'd let her roam about outside and go swimming in the lake, he'd watch her laugh and enjoy herself with Lady while he cooked at the barbecue, he'd let her enjoy ever single moment so that when they returned to his penthouse she'd have something to look forwards to. The moments of just them and the cabin, alone and happy. If his plan with Joffrey and the Lannisters was to work he'd have to send Sansa home to Cat and Ned but he'd make sure that she was so full of love for him that he could pull her back to him with nothing more than a look.
Sansa Stark was his!
Chapter 18: Keep Her Sweet
Petyr's SUV – there was no way in hell he was going to bring his beloved Aston Martin into the woods – came to a halt just outside the large cabin he'd acquired just for his darling Sansa. The early afternoon sun fluttered through the viridescent giving the forest a golden glow. Before he could utter a single word Sansa had hopped out the car with Lady and charged over to see the cabin, Petyr didn't have to look at his redhead to know there was an expression of awe on her delicate features; he grinned smugly. Sansa was somewhere new and outside, actually outside! When Petyr got out of the sleek, dark vehicle he snaked his arms around his baby girl from behind and pulled her close, she smelt to strawberries and innocence. He brushed her long red locks over her shoulder and pressed his lips to the soft skin he found there.
“You like?” Petyr purred.
A pointless question really, of course she liked it, Sansa adored it.
“Yes! Yes! I love it!” She bounced up and down a little with excitement, her Daddy always made her happy. “Can we go in?”
“Of course, Sweetling. Here,” he pulled a set of keys from is breast pocket and handed them to his gorgeous sixteen year old which she took with glee. “go and explore and I'll get the luggage.”
Petyr pressed another kiss to the porcelain skin of her neck. With a gentle push Sansa ran to the front door with Lady not two steps behind her. Cabin might not have been the right word, 'cabin' conjured up ideas of a tiny little shack made wholly of dark wood and that wasn't anything close to Petyr's new home in the woods. Some walls had been removed and replaced with glass, the entire interior had been modernised and everything had a sense of warmth to it.
Baelish made quick work of taking their cases from the trunk, he wasn't quite sure why she'd felt the urge to bring quite so much clothing since they were only going to be there for a long weekend. He carried them through the large oak door that his kitten had left open and dropped them beside the cream colored couch before dropping to his knees and lighting the large fireplace, the cabin wasn't exactly cold but there was a sense of chill to the air, no one had been inside since he'd taken over and he wanted everything to match up with the romanticised fantasy his darling Sansa had gotten. The fire roared to life and spewed out rich heat, wood logs crackled satisfyingly and Petyr smirked before grabbing Sansa's mass of bags and his lone black one and took them straight up to the master bedroom. The man with ash at his temples couldn't help but wonder what delights lay inside the cases; bras covered in delicate black lace, skirts so short they left almost nothing to the imagination, the stockings he loved so much to see wrapped around her firm thighs, that pair of sailor shorts he'd bought her that showed off the perfect rounds of her backside. He could only imagine.
When Petyr returned downstairs he went looking for his angelic girl, it didn't take him long to find her leaning against the light wood railing of the balcony that looked out over Praise Springs Lake. Littlefinger would have been lying if he'd said he hadn't taken a few seconds to admire the tiny yellow skirt she wore and the way it showed the tops of her stockings.
“Did Daddy do good then?” He grinned, Sansa jumped a little at his unexpected voice but returned the smile when he took her into his arms once again. Lady barked at some nearby squirrel hiding in a tree but they both ignored her.
“Very good. Best Daddy ever!”
“Ooh, high praise indeed, Sweetling.”
His voice was dark and deep, tantalising and had the young Stark melting into his chest in seconds. Petyr's calloused hands ran up her smooth thighs then suddenly he lifted her and sat Sansa on the railing forcing her legs to part so as he could step between them. Nimble fingers undid the tiny buttons of her white blouse, small and round like a tear, and then kissed slowly down her neck to the crevice of her breasts. Baelish could have done anything to his girl as she sat there and she'd have still begged him for more. My needy little girl.
“How about-” Kiss. “- you go and put on that bikini and I'll take you down to the lake? Lady can go paddling.”
The brothel owner phrased it as a question but it wasn't one, she'd do as he told her. Sansa beamed up at him, her cerulean orbs shining in the early afternoon sun. Oh how he'd loved corrupting her into the naughty little girl she'd become. With another kiss to her plump pink lips Petyr released the teenager so she could run off upstairs to change, Lady followed behind.
He stood there for a time waiting for his girl, even he couldn't deny that Praise Springs Lake was beautiful, he couldn't see the other end of the lake from his balcony but he could faintly hear laughter. Soil sloped upwards into a large hill-like mound covered over by trees and leaves at the back of the house almost hiding it away, Petyr suspected no one would see the house if they just glanced upwards from the lake, one would have to know it was there; just the way Petyr liked it. His little section of the lake was utterly abandoned, just him and his sweet Sansa. She'd be able to hear other people and feel like she was free but in truth Petyr was controlling every single second, he was determined for them to enjoy her birthday weekend but he'd make damn sure no one saw her; he didn't want to be killing people on his angel's sixteenth.
There would be big changes very soon, he'd not intended for it to come so quickly but Tywin bloody Lannister had forced his hand. He couldn't dwell on that now though, Sansa was upstairs taking her clothes off.
Sansa splashed about in the lake with Lady while Petyr reclined on the sandy shore tapping away on his phone, he'd swapped his usual Armani suits for a loose white linen shirt and a pair of dark purple board shorts. Just because it was his girl's birthday didn't mean he could stop working; sometimes he thought he never did. He'd quickly checked the news to see if Cat and Ned had released any new plea for their daughter to come home but there hadn't been anything.
Suddenly Sansa bounced down on him and ripped his phone away before he could finish his email to Olyvar, she had a grin on her face and her red locks were a little damp from her splashing.
“Come and play?” She asked with an overly innocent look on her face.
“Give me my phone, Sweetling.”
She ignored him.
“Play!” Sansa all but demanded. “Come on, you always work and it's my birthday weekend.”
He kept trying to grab his phone but Sansa waved her hand about so he couldn't get to it as though it were a game.
He yelled, Petyr hadn't meant to shout at her but from the way she was going his phone would have soon been smashed against a rock. Sansa stopped dead at his angry tone and pouted, all that fun and frolic faded away as she stared off at nothing in particular still straddling his lap. He took back his phone and quickly hit send before setting it down softly and slipping his arms around Sansa's tiny waist so he could pull her to his chest, completely uncaring that she was wet.
“Daddy's sorry, Sweetling, but you have to do as you're told.”
“Yes, Daddy. Sorry, Daddy.” She muttered.
“What do you want hmm?” Petyr asked with a devilish grin and kissed her cheek.
Sansa lit up at that. “Race you to the float!”
Sansa leaned in for a kiss but Petyr was a competitive sort and suddenly threw Sansa off of him, stripped away his shirt and dove into the lake.
She called out once she realised what was happening and raced after him. Petyr could have let his girl win but the idea of seeing her burst out of the water dripping wet just for him was just too good to pass up. This wasn't him, he didn't do cute rom-com weekends away but if it was what Sansa wanted for her birthday he'd damn well do it. The happier he made her now the easier it would be to get her back later.
Chapter 19: Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This.
Sansa sat quietly on the beige couch opposite the one her parents occupied, her back was to the large living room window and her eyes fixed on he carpeted floor. Those big blue orbs of hers were full of tears as she sobbed quietly.
“I want my Daddy.” She told Cat and Ned without looking up, her heart ached.
Ned looked blank but Catelyn glared at her suffering daughter.
“You're father is right here, Sansa.” There wasn't any love in her mother's tone, just disdain.
“Not him!” The younger redhead suddenly shouted, a small spark of anger before she slipped back into sorrow.
Ned didn't react, not a single muscle movement but Cat practically growled at her daughter as though Sansa had suddenly slapped her in the face.
“Shut your mouth you little deviant!”
Still Ned didn't move, didn't react, almost as though he wasn't actually there. Sansa couldn't see them but she knew that Arya and Bran were perched on the stairs listening to every single word. The house looked far sterile and prison like than she remembered, far more grey and white than there should have been.
“I asked Petyr to help find you, to protect you,” every single word was full of disgust, “and what do I discover? He's taken you from your loving prison and turned you into his whore!” Cat had said 'home' but Sansa only heard the word 'prison'. “You let him turn you into a Jezebel to spite us.”
When was her mother going to learn that not everything was about her?
“I just want him.” Sansa muttered to herself as she wiped away tears but her mother heard it anyway; Sansa felt so alone without him, so lost.
“Well tough, you'll never see that paedophile again.”
Sansa's heart was already broken but what her mother said crushed the pieces to dust. Petyr had said she was everything to him, so what did that mean if she was without him? Sansa was nothing. The sixteen year old didn't think she could live like that.
Still her father didn't move, didn't blink, so quiet and unmoving. So much so that Sansa had started to wonder if he was dead or possibly a convincing dummy; she half expected his head to drop off any second.
Suddenly came a horrific banging on the dark wooden front door and then a god-awful thud as it was kicked in. Cat shot to her feet as Petyr walked into the grey living room, more slithered, slow controlled movements. His eyes were darker than she'd ever seen them and Sansa liked it.
There was a silky baritone to his voice that had her slipping off the beige couch and crawling to him in seconds, Sansa didn't trust her legs to keep her up. There he was, he'd come for her!
“Sansa is mine.” He told Cat in no uncertain terms, voice unwavering. He didn't shout, Petyr commanded too much authority for that and in all honesty his deep calm voice was more terrifying than if he yelled. “Entirely mine. Her body, her pleasure, everything. She's mind to protect, mine to love. And she's coming home with me.”
“You stay away from my daughter you monster!” Demanded Cat but it was too late, Sansa pulled herself up Petyr's body and cuddled into his strong chest. That was her safe place.
Petyr sighed in minor frustration.
“Sansa is mine-”
Suddenly he was cut off and blood poured down from his throat into Sansa's hair and eyes. Everything went red as the man she loved gargled and choked on his own blood, Petyr dropped to his knees. Sansa could only stare with abject horror. The noise, the short sharp glugs, the light that faded from his powerful green orbs. He hadn't seen it coming, the genius plotter hadn't seen this coming but there was too much pain for his shock to shine through.
Stood with a pleased smile on her face just behind where Petyr had been standing was Arya, a strange golden dagger in her hand.
“Sansa! Sansa wake up!” Petyr shook his girl violently. “It's just a dream.”
Sansa sat bolt upright in the dark, lungs panting desperately for cool air. For a moment Sansa didn't know where she was, didn't know what had just happened but there was Petyr right beside her, a look of concern on his face. Alive. Petyr was alive.
Sansa clung to him, she all but clambered into his lap.
“They took me back. You died!”
She was sobbing and Petyr held her close, he pressed loving kisses into her slightly sweat damp hair and let her cry. Sansa's nails dug into his naked back in a desperate attempt to keep him close, Sansa needed comfort but Petyr couldn't help grinning over her shoulder. Even her subconscious told her she was his.
Slowly Baelish managed to coax more and more of her dreams from Sansa's lips and quickly came to the conclusion that Sansa truly loved him. She saw him as safety and love, as happiness, while her family had turned into her jailers. Arya's part in everything had taken him a few moments to decipher but he'd soon reached the conclusion that Sansa though of her younger sister as getting away with anything, so why not perform the worst act Sansa's mind could come up with and let her get away scot-free? Not so much as a reprimand.
Petyr had Sansa right where he wanted her. Her body, her mind, her very soul yearned for him and only him.
Sansa's pert backside stung from the spanking he'd given her after she'd nearly smashed his phone while out on the beach, so he laid back on the cold pillows with Sansa's full weight atop him. Neither spoke, Petyr just let Sansa cry into his chest, her tears staining his skin.
Sansa was ready, he could complete his plan.
Chapter 20: Better To Have Loved And Lost
Petyr thrust into the beloved angel beneath him, hard and animalistic forcing pleasured pants from Sansa's parted lips. Her wrists would bruise with the force he used to keep them pinned above her head but she didn't care, too lost in bliss. Her head kept tilting back further into the soft pillows as she gasped and Petyr longed to bite, to suck, to mark her as his in any way he could, before the brothel owner knew what he was doing his calloused hands had released her wrists and found a new home at her throat and squeezed just tight enough to make it hurt. A look of suddenly shock flashed across her face but it quickly gave way to a hunger he'd not seen in his redhead before, she didn't stop him, didn't even try, just grinned... and Petyr couldn't help but squeeze just that little bit tighter and watch her masochism come to the surface. The look in her eyes caused his thrusts to grow erratic as he raced towards his climax, Sansa kept her blue eyes locked with his green ones as she came; hard and with his title on her lips.
He finally released her throat and collapsed on the soft bed beside her, Sansa coughed violently.
“Are you alright, Sweetling? I didn't hurt you?”
“... No.” She said after a few moments. “I'm okay, Daddy, just surprised. You've never done that before.”
Petyr smirked to himself and traced a single finger over her naked breasts. “You just looked so beautiful beneath me, at my mercy.” Baelish couldn't help it, he had to pull Sansa close to his naked chest and snake his arms around her waist. “Daddy's perfect girl."
When the day came for them to drive back home Sansa dragged her heels at every opportunity, he didn't blame her really, he'd have wanted to stay too if he were her. After a while he'd managed to get her in the SUV and headed back to his penthouse only to be forced to pull over so as Sansa could use the rest room. He'd wanted to be back at the penthouse by two but Sansa's sexy little ass and insistence upon staying at the cabin had pushed him several hours of target, it had already gone four-thirty.
While he waited Littlefinger perused the contents of the gas station's candy isle with very little interest, just as he came to what he'd been looking for his cellphone started to ring and he answered almost instantly.
“Catelyn Stark is here.” Said Ros flatly.
Petyr sighed as he headed towards the cash register to pay. “Perfect. I'm ten minutes out so tell her to wait in the bar.”
“Sure thing, Boss.”
Ros didn't say more or wait for Petyr to utter anything else, she just hung up as he left the gas station and returned to the car. He'd been wondering how to do it but Cat had gone ahead and made it easy for him. Earlier than imagined but nothing the man with ash at his temples couldn't handle.
When his baby girl returned Baelish was leaning against the driver's side door.
“Sweetling, it's going to rain soon, put a pair of jeans on please.”
“But I like my skirt.” As if to prove it Sansa gave him a little twirl, the tiny orange scrap of fabric flew up teasing him with the tantalising view of her pert backside.
“Do as Daddy says, Little One. Who makes the rules?” Petyr kept his voice light but there was no denying the subtle warning hidden away in his tone.
“You.” She loved the dark look in his eyes.
“Ding, ding, we have a winner.” Petyr leaned in and kissed her pink lips. “Change please, Sweetling.”
With only a hint of reluctance Sansa pulled open the rear driver side door and pulled her backpack free from beside a snoozing Lady then padded back to the rest room. Petyr tap, tap, tapped away on his phone while he waited for his darling girl to return and popped a lollipop he'd purchased from inside into his mouth. When she did Sansa looked dejected, she tossed her bag back into the car, the dull thud it made woke Lady and earned her a glare from the animal, she tucked her blouse into the boot cut jeans she'd put on. Easily Petyr pulled the redhead into his arms where she rested her cheek against his chest.
“I love you, Sweetling. You know that right?” Of course he knew, there wasn't any denying it, Petyr just liked to hear her say it.
Sansa nodded. “I love you too.”
She snuggled further into his chest and wrapped her arms around his waist, her Daddy smelt of his morning coffee and the light scent of cherry clung to his breath probably from the lollipop in his mouth. Everything about him made Sansa feel safe, even his danger.
“Good.” Petyr kissed the top of her head and released his angelic temptress. He fished in his suit pocket for a second then handed her a lollipop just like his own. “Here.”
Sansa took the treat with a grin and hopped into the car. Traffic was light and Petyr wasn't met by a single red light. After only ten minutes Petyr pulled into the Mockingbird's underground parking lot and brought the SUV to a halt right beside his beloved Aston Martin, Home sweet home, he thought with a smug grin. Almost instantly Sansa hopped out the car with Lady hot on her heels and went straight to the silver elevator, he'd not expected her to be so happy about being home considering how reluctant she'd been all day; maybe she'd realised that coming back to the Mockingbird didn't mean she'd never get to return to the cabin. Petyr didn't really know.
Baelish ignored the bags in the SUV and punched in the elevator pin number before stepping aside so Sansa could step inside first. Her brow furrowed when he hit G instead of PH.
“Daddy,” She began in a puzzled tone, “ where are we going? Shouldn't you be taking me to the penthouse?”
Petyr grinned. “You've been asking me for months to see my club and since it's shut I thought now would be a good time.”
“Really? I can see it?” Sansa beamed and leaned up to kiss his cheek. “Thank you, Daddy.”
“You're welcome, Sweetling. Consider it another birthday present.”
The club was a side of him she'd never seen before, she'd imagined dark walls covered in erotic tapestries and an over the top fountain of vodka. When the doors rolled open she tugged him by the hand onto the club floor with Lady hot on their heels. No vodka fountain or tapestries but she'd been right about the dark walls. The ceilings seemed to go on forever, taller than any church her mother had forced her into, and the floors were a smooth black marble. A large winding staircase called the west corner home and Sansa assumed that lead to the office he'd mentioned a while back. Petyr slipped his arm around her shoulder as she continued to look around and drink in her Daddy's domain. Booths of red velvet were dotted everywhere but somehow didn't seem to take up much space, little areas were raised and littered with blood colored chairs almost as though they were some kind of viewing area while one raised section over by – what Sansa assumed to be – the dance floor screamed VIP area. The whole club gave off a den of iniquity vibe and the redhead longed to know what the place looked like packed full of the debauched. When she turned to the bar she found another redhead wiping it down, must be Ros, muttered Sansa's mind.
When they walked into full view of the bar Petyr suddenly put a huge amount of space between them which caused his girl to frown.
Fear shot through Sansa's whole body and made a home in her eyes as she turned to she her mother charging towards her at full speed; Lady growled.
Lady growled louder as Cat engulfed her daughter in a tight hug, Sansa didn't want this, didn't hug back.
Petyr commanded and she instantly sat down like a good dog, he'd seen she was about to launch at Cat; Lady had been trained well to protect his darling Sansa.
“You found her, thank you, Petyr, thank you.” Catelyn clung to Sansa almost crushingly so.
Baelish cleared his throat. “Of course, it's an honour to return your daughter to you.”
“What are you wearing?”
Cat looked at Sansa's tight jeans and skin hugging blouse with distaste and didn't seem to hear a word Petyr had said.
“My bartender gave her a change of clothes.” He answered easily.
Littlefinger had know Cat would be against what his little girl wore but he couldn't have risked Sansa growing suspicious of him making her change more than her skirt for jeans. While he stood there emotionless Cat started to cry and Sansa looked about ready to crawl inside his chest just to get away from her mother.
“Where did you find her? Where has she been?” The elder redhead all but demanded.
“I found her wandering the street looking terrified after I left a meeting at Casterly Rock, Joffrey had been irritating as usual.” He paused only for a moment. “I brought her straight here. You should get her home and call the detective in charge of her case.”
Finally Cat released her daughter and looked directly at the club owner as she wiped away tears.
“Thank you, Petyr, truly. Sansa, thank Mister Baelish.”
He watched as Sansa slowly turned to face her Daddy, tears ran down her cheeks, Catelyn thought it was joy of having been reunited with her mother but Petyr knew the truth, she cried because she'd have to leave her Daddy. When she opened her mouth to speak her voice was quiet and pained.
“... Thank you.”
“Come on, Sansa. Let's get you home. Your father, brothers and sister have been worried sick.”
I am home! Sansa's mind screamed. Cat made to pull Sansa away but Lady got in the way and started to growl and snarl once more, she'd not let Sansa be taken.
“Petyr, please control your dog.”
Sansa reached out a loving hand and the wolf dog instantly nuzzled into it as Petyr rounded them to the animal's side.
Lady obeyed instantly. He could see the sorrow in his baby girls cerulean eyes,
“It seems Lady has become somewhat protective of Sansa.” Said Petyr smoothly. “Sansa, would you like to take Lady with you? To feel safe?”
“Oh that's not needed, Petyr. You've already-”
“Yes.” Sansa cut her mother off, she had to lose Petyr she wouldn't lose Lady as well.
“Good. I'll have her food and a leash sent over soon.” Baelish smiled softly at his girl.
“You don't have to let her take your dog.” Clearly Catelyn didn't want a dog – let alone one the size of Lady – loose in her home.
“No, Lady will be good for her. She's a protective animal at heart.”
Petyr rested a large hand on Sansa's right shoulder and pressed a kiss to her forehead. The older redhead thought it odd and a little too familiar but Petyr couldn't resist, he needed his darling Sansa to know she was loved.
“Take care of yourself, Sweetling. Just tell the truth about where I found you and what happened. No one can hurt you now.”
Sansa nodded mutely.
“Thank you, Petyr.” Said Cat again and frankly he was getting sick of hearing that.
“... She's safe, that is thanks enough.”
He had no choice but to watch as his beloved kitten was tugged away from him and the place she called home, her only comfort being that Lady got to go with her. Petyr would be lonely without his sweet Sansa but he'd not let Cat take her forever, he knew she'd spend every second longing to be back with him. He'd take her back... once his plan was done.
“You look like you need a cuddle, Boss.” Oly said from behind him, grin on his porcelain face.
“Olyvar, so help me God-”
“Okay, okay, sorry.” The blonde held up his hands in surrender. “I was just wondering if that girl knows you're using her or not.”
“I use everyone.” He couldn't take his eyes from where Sansa been stood.
“Not me though.”
Petyr sighed. “No, Oly, just not how you want.”
Truth be told Petyr liked the banter he and Olyvar shared, it amused him on some level and that was why he'd tolerated the blonde's crush on him for so long, both knew nothing would ever come from it.
“Hey, if I make it to ten years working for you can I get a kiss?” Oly asked jokingly.
“If I haven't killed you sure.”
With that Petyr turned and went back to the elevator leaving Olyvar grinning, he'd already been there nine years.
Chapter 21: Wash Away The Truth
Sansa had been crowded ever since Catelyn had taken her back to Winterfell and frankly she'd never felt so uncomfortable in her life; not even when she'd first discovered that Petyr had had stalked her for years. The redhead wanted to go back to him, back to where she was safe and happy and loved.
“Can I go to my room please?” She asked quietly, eyes cast to the floor.
Her parents – or more correctly her mother – had kept her on the same couch she'd been on in her nightmare for hours, wouldn't let Sansa out of her sight. Robb and Jon had taken her into their arms almost the second they'd seen her, Bran had smiled and possibly cried – she'd not really been paying attention – while Rickon didn't seem to notice that she'd actually been missing, probably too young to understand; he'd been more focused on 'can we keep the doggy?'. Arya had never been one for mushy emotions but she'd tried to hug her sister. That had been the last few hours of her life and she couldn't take it! Her father seemed to be the only one who understood she needed some space.
“You need to speak to the police, Sansa.” Said her mother.
Maybe it hadn't been hours she'd been back at Winterfell then, the police probably would have made it their first job to come talk to her.
“The lass can do that in her room.” Argued her father and Sansa was thankful for it.
She didn't wait for anything else to be said, just stood and made her way quickly and quietly up the stairs into her bedroom with Lady right behind her. Sansa crashed down on her bed and Lady hopped up beside her so she could nuzzle into the redhead's side. The room was still a hideous pink mass void of everything she cared about, she wanted to go home to Petyr, to her carousel, to their movie nights with ice cream, to their bed, not remain in the pink prison. Petyr wouldn't leave her though, she knew he'd never do that, he'd come for her, save her like he had before. Tears started to pour from her eyes again, why had her mother gone back to Petyr's club? Why couldn't she just leave Sansa be?
“He'll come.” She told Lady through her sobs. “He will.”
Sansa couldn't even begin to explain how thankful she was that her Daddy had convinced Cat to let her take Lady with her. Having her beloved pet by her side helped to take some on the pain away, but only a bit.
After what felt like forever a knock came on her door, light and unimposing, could have only been her father, her mother would have just walked in. The door opened and sure enough there was Ned followed closely by her mother and two men in suits; cops then.
“Lass, the police are here to speak with you.” Ned told her softly.
Lady growled, teeth bared and ready to pounce. She'd been trained to keep Sansa safe, keep strangers away from her and Sansa felt almost as though Lady were a protective wall between her and the rest of the world.
“Oh that thing needs to go back to Petyr to learn some manners.” Complained Cat, she'd never really been an animal person.
Sansa knew that Lady would actually pounce so she gripped her blue collar tightly keeping the dog on the bed beside her.
“I'm sorry to bother you, Miss Stark. I'm Detective Inspector Chandler, this is DS Kent ” Said the elder of the two policemen. “We know it must be hard for you right now,” It is but not for the reasons you think. “but we need to ask you a few questions.”
Cautiously the blonde DI made his way closer and perched on the edge of her bed, brave concerning he was all of a foot away from a rather large wolfdog that clearly didn't like him. Her parents loitered in the doorway while the shorter dark-haired DS Kent hovered between his partner and her dresser. Lady growled again and Sansa was forced to tug on the collar.
“Lady shush.” The dog obeyed instantly but kept an eye on Chandler.
“I didn't know you had a dog, Miss Stark.” Started the blonde almost conversationally.
“She doesn't. It's Petyr's and it'll be going back soon.”
Chandler turned to her mother, clearly not pleased that Cat insisted on speaking for her daughter.
“Petyr would be Mister Petyr Baelish? The man who found her?” Cat nodded. “We'll be having men speak to him shortly.” Chandler turned his attention back to Sansa. “Is it alright if I ask you some questions?”
The redhead nodded, it wasn't like she had much choice, but what if her story didn't match Petyr's? What would they do to him?
“According to your mother, Mister Baelish found you earlier today on his way home after a meeting at Casterly Rock, the Lannister mansion. Is that true?”
If Petyr had said it he'd said it for a reason so she agreed.
“Okay.” Nodded Chandler while Kent started to jot things down in a little black notebook. “You vanished from your room, can you tell me who took you? How they got in?”
Sansa was quiet for a long time and everyone assumed it was fear but no, it was her trying to figure out what to tell them, what Petyr would want her to say. 'I don't know' would have raised more questions and there was no way in hell she'd tell them it was Petyr she'd been with. They'd never believe she'd gone to him willingly rather than him kidnapping her.
“Sansa, answer the detective.” Cat finally demanded but still she said nothing. “Answer the question.”
The name slipped from her mouth before she could stop it, there wasn't any evidence to back that up but her mother's stern voice scared her and Petyr had already talked about the Lannisters.
“Joffrey Baratheon?” The blonde detective didn't seem overly surprised for some reason.
“I thought you loved each other.”
Oh that set Sansa off, her mother had always been blind when it came to Sansa. Arya got away with just about anything with nothing more than a displeased glance, Bran and Rikon were babied while Robb and Jon actually got treated like they were smart enough to make their own decisions. Her teenage mind might have given her tunnel vision about some things but Catelyn had blinded herself to Joffrey and Sansa's hatred for him. Petyr had taught her she didn't need to be under her mother's religious thumb.
“No! You did.” Sansa had never yelled at her mother before. Lady snuggled closer almost as though she were moral support. “You wanted me to marry him. He's a monster! I just went alone with it to make you happy but nothing ever does!” The tears started again. “So when I said no he... he-”
Sansa went quiet as sobs took over, she buried her face in Lady's fur. Ned was instantly by her side cuddling her into his chest despite Lady's snarl of warning, he was a good father, loving and caring, but nothing would make her feel better until she was back in her Daddy's arms.
“And Joffrey did that to you?”
For a moment Sansa had forgotten that DI Chandler was there. He gestured to her neck and wrists, she'd not realised they'd bruised, Petyr had choked her the last time they'd had sex, they were bruises of pleasure but the police couldn't know that.
“Alright. We're going to need to do a rape kit and have your bruises documented.”
“No.” Sansa said sternly, tears forgotten.
“I know it's invasive but it must be done.”
“Sansa-” began her mother but Sansa wasn't having any of it, if they did a rape kit they'd find Petyr's DNA.
“Maybe tomorrow when she's slept?” Ned tried to reason, in his mind Sansa had been through horror and misery, she deserved rest and love.
“Every second we wait to do the tests we lose possible evidence, Mister Stark.” Said Kent, his voice was higher pitched that Chandler's and seemingly more sincere.
“What if the examiners come here? You wouldn't have to go anywhere then, would you allow that, Lass?”
Sansa knew she wasn't getting out of these tests but making them come to her would buy some time.
“Okay.” She said sorrowfully.
“Alright, we can make that work.” Chandler turned to Kent. “Call forensics.”
The questions kept coming for a few more minutes before the blonde was satisfied and Sansa managed to get Ned to convince her mother to leave her alone soon after that. She didn't have long until those tests were started, she had to wash Petyr away.
Chapter 22: Intruders At Midnight
The tests had been done, photographs taken, more questions asked and the rape kit had been sent off to the lab for analysis. It had killed her to wash Petyr away but it had needed to be done, couldn't risk them being discovered. Normally they used a condom ut of course the one day they hadn't her mother had shown up to ruin everything. Chandler had informed Sansa that she needed to come down to the station at some point in the near future to give a formal statement but thankfully he didn't rush her. Don't worry, Miss Stark, Joffrey Baratheon won't be doing this to anyone else ever again. We have new evidence. Chandler had told her before he left which had only left Sansa with yet more questions. How could the police have 'new evidence' when everything she'd said was a lie. It shouldn't have been possible .
Finally alone Sansa lay down and glanced up at the digital clock which read seven o'clock, the sun had gone down and thankfully Cat had decided to leave her alone; it seemed Ned had finally convinced his wife that Sansa needed space. The teenage redhead curled up on her side with her back to the window with Lady cuddled to her chest. Her beloved pet was the only thing making the whole situation bearable.
She wanted to yell and scream at Petyr, wanted to slap him. Surly he'd had to have known about her mother. He knew everything! But no, it couldn't have been on purpose, he'd never let her go. Sansa was his Sweetling and proud of it. He'd promised to never let her go and she believed he would think of something. Petyr Baelish was too smart, cunning and sneaky not to. Petyr would save her from her parents, of course she loved them and her siblings very much but her Daddy made her happy and she wanted to be with him.
Sansa had lay there on her side for hours watching nothing in particular, Ned had poked his head into the room around nine to check on her but other than that she'd been left alone. Eventually Sansa slipped into slumber with a snoring Lady, until her eyes snapped open at he sound of her window opening. The wolfdog snarled but quickly quieted in favour of settling on the end of the bed with her long tail wagging. Petyr. Before she could hop up from the bed his weight dipped the mattress down and an arm was thrown over her waist.
“Hello, Sweetling.” Petyr whispered into her ear and she purred.
A wave of peace and happiness washed over Sansa as she leaned back into him. He was warm and his scent instantly calmed her body and soothed her soul. He'd never let her go.
“I missed you.” She breathed and turned in his arms, Sansa snuggled into his chest.
Baelish had changed his clothes since she'd seen him that morning, now he was shrouded in black, suit, shirt with a somehow darker hoodie over the top. A cat that had been on the prowl.
Petyr suddenly tugged on her long red hair slightly to get her to look up at him. Dominating green to naughty cerulean. Petyr just looked at her for a moment, a pause before everything surged back to life. His lips crashed to hers as though they'd been parted for years rather than hours, he tasted of mint and Sansa felt as though she were home. Her nails dug into his shoulders and pushed him onto his back where she straddled him, Petyr went willingly, of course he did, no one could make Petyr Baelish do anything he didn't want to. His strong hands caressed her thighs, teased upwards to her hips, that was where she belonged. Sansa loved him and Petyr clearly loved her, why couldn't they be together? Age was just a number and she'd chosen Petyr.
Her Daddy drug his tongue over her bottom lip begging entrance that was quickly granted, Sansa let out a little moan of pleasure. She had him back. The moan grew into a desperate mew when he ran his tongue along her teeth which made him grin and chuckle deep in his throat; Petyr loved to make his kitten purr.
Suddenly the sound of footsteps on the stairs reached them, Sansa froze but not Petyr, no, he surged into action and threw Sansa off of him then rolled off the bed and under it just as the door opened. The redhead clenched her eyes shut and did her best to appear sleeping. Cat pushed the door open with a creak and stepped inside to glance out the window which Petyr had thankfully had the foresight to shut. Quite how he'd managed to climb up and into her room she wasn't sure but he'd obviously done it before when he retrieved her carousel. Catelyn looked around the dark bedroom as though she didn't trust the space then moved closer to her daughter only for Lady to jump up to glare warningly at her.
“You're a vicious little thing, aren't you?” Cat whispered angrily. “Petyr needs to teach you some manners. He doesn't even like dogs.”
Cat stood there for a while in utter silence – moments of awkward quiet that came in a continuous line – before finally, finally, leaving the room. They waited until the footsteps faded into nothingness and then a little longer just to be safe before Petyr rolled out from under the bed and settled back down beside his Sansa.
“I want to go home.” She told him after a time.
“Soon, my Sweetling. I love you.”
“You won't forget me will you? Won't leave me here?”
“Oh, my darling. I could never forget you. If I took you home right now and spent ever single minute of ever single day for the rest of my life with you, I'd remember this moment. I would remember your warmth, your love, your goodness. I remember every single time we are together, Sansa, as though it were the first time I saw you.”
“Tell me about it.” She pleaded quietly. “About the first time.”
He smiled, a true and genuine smile that reached his green orbs was was only for her.
“You know about that.”
“Tell me again?” How could he deny his angel?
“Alright.” He paused for a beat. “Your parents were throwing some sort of church barbecue and Cat invited me. I only went to irritate Ned. Your Aunt Lysa had been throwing herself at me the entire time so I escaped to the bathroom for a moment of peace and when I left... there you were. A sweet ten-year-old little girl sat at the top of the stairs crying, people like me don't give crying children a moment of thought but you stopped me in my tracks.” Petyr didn't look at his redhead, instead he stared off at the horrid pink wall as though the memory were playing in his mind. There was a smile on his face, small, hardly there, almost as though he weren't aware of it. “You had an ivory dress on, went down to your ankles with a sashes bow in my shade of purple, almost as though you were mine already. There was lace work over your shoulders as well, a beautiful piece of work but it would have been nothing without your flowing red hair bringing it all to life. You looked like a goddess. I must have just watched you from the bathroom doorway for a good five minutes, I couldn't take my eyes off you. So stunning, so innocence, so lonely.” Sansa remained silent, she had been lonely but Petyr had put a stop to all that. “I asked if you were alright and you jumped, it wasn't that I'd startled you, more like no one had ever bothered to ask you that before. I could have fallen into your blue eyes and died a happy man. When you spoke it was so quiet but angelic, I sat down on the stairs next to you and we just listened to the noise going on downstairs like we were part of it all but separate at the same time. You seemed to be comforted just by my presence, I made you happy just being there and truth be told the same was true for me.” Baelish paused for a moment. “I had this desperate urge to touch you so I ran my fingers through your hair and told you everything would be alright... and then your mother came across us and dragged you away. I left after that.”
“She ruins everything.” Complained the teenager.
“Cat's not that bad. And of course I'll take you home but Daddy has to work some things out-” Abruptly Sansa cut him off when she remembered Chander's questions from earlier.
“I told them Joffrey took me. I didn't mean to but it slipped out and now the Detective says they have new evidence.”
“Shush, Kitten.” His voice was calm and deep. “Daddy supplied the 'new evidence'.”
Sansa paused for a moment.
“You did?” Her brow furrowed. “How? How did you-?”
“Did I know you'd say he took you? Well, I said I found you near the Lannister home and you already hate Joffrey. That and I have cameras all over Casterly Rock.” Petyr smirked.
“You're framing him?”
“But of course, Sweetling.” Baelish pulled Sansa closer until there was hardly an inch between their lips. “ You're mine, Sansa Stark, mine ! No one hurts you, I saw what Joffrey did to you everyday after school for years and that was just what he was stupid enough to do in public. I'll destroy him for hurting you and I'll destroy the Lannisters for daring to try and push me out of my own game. No one plays the game better than I do, Sweetling.” He kissed the top of her head. “You tell them he woke you up in the middle of the night and convinced you to climb out your window to meet him, you didn't want to, of course you didn't, it was the middle of the night and you don't actually like him, but you were afraid of what he'd do the next day at school if you didn't. He was angry because you'd finally stood up for yourself and told him to he wasn't good enough for you, that you hated him. Joffrey got angry and you don't remember anything after that. You woke up in a basement with the sound of dripping pipes, that's where he had you. You escaped when he was dumb enough to forget to lock the door.”
“But how do I prove any of that?”
“You don't. Sansa, you spin the tale, play the helpless little girl everyone wants you to be, I pad the story out. I take it from your word against his to cold, hard fact. Daddy will make it all okay, the Lannisters own the police but this is already too big for them to bury. I however, own the forensic scientists, I don't need to prove anything I just need to pay enough to make them say what I want.”
Clearly Petyr had put a lot of thought into this, seemingly more than the hours since her mother had found them, nonsense. He'd not lie to her.
“I want to go home.” She told him again, cheek pressed to his chest.
“Soon, Sweetling.” Petyr assured. “I promise you won't have to stay here, I won't allow it. You're my little girl remember?” Sansa nodded. “I love you.”
“I love you too, Daddy.”
“I'd love to stay here with you all night but I have to set to work on the scientists and Cat will keep poking her head in here all night. Goodnight, my Sweetling.”
The redhead grabbed at him desperately.
“No. Please don't leave.” She begged, tears threatened to start again.
“Hush, it's not forever, baby girl and you have Lady to keep you company. I love you.”
With one final kiss Petyr rose from the bed and carefully opened the window, he clambered out and vanished into the night as though he were a ghost. Sansa wiped tears from her eyes and made quick work of closing the window behind him lest her mother return, then curled back up on her hated bed. She still wasn't happy – far bloody from it – but her Daddy had come to her, he'd promised she'd go home and that he loved her.
Petyr's visit made it easier for her to sleep but it still wasn't what one would deem peaceful. She just had to survive until Petyr could carry out whatever plan he had.
It was too quiet, much too quiet. Petyr had grown used to Sansa and Lady filling his penthouse, Lady's constant snoring and Sansa's angelic voice moaning out in need and whispering 'Daddy'. Petyr wasn't lonely, he flat out refused to say that. No, he'd just grown accustom to his baby girl always being there. It mattered not though, soon he'd have her back in his arms safe and sound right where she belonged. That dog too. He'd already had Cat on the phone telling him to pick up Lady but no, she'd stay with Sansa until he took his Sweetling back.
He'd gotten the footage he had doctored into evidence, just paid a cleaner with a bit of a gambling problem; easier that stealing candy from a baby. Instant supporting evidence of everything Sansa had said. Petyr had been slowly programming his girl since the whole plan had occurred to him. Of course he could have just told her what was going on from the beginning but Petyr never revealed his plots and cons, it was safer to keep his cards glued to his chest, and besides, if Sansa thought she was protecting both of them she'd be more inclined to stick to her story emotionally. Maybe it would have been better to tell her, Petyr couldn't help it, he manipulated everyone.
Still, there was nothing more he could do for the night, he'd gone to reassure Sansa the night before but Petyr couldn't risk doing that every night; not with Cat watching his baby girl like a hawk. The way Petyr saw it he had two options. One: sit in the room he'd gifted Sansa with a bottle of whiskey. Then there was option two: go down to his club, light-heartedly threaten to kill Olyvar when he made some reference to them having sex and lord over the place as he usually did... with a bottle of whiskey. Frankly option two sounded pretty good, then there was the fact that business as usual would look better to the police.
T he man with ash at his temples dressed in the blackest three piece suit he possessed and tie the color of blood. Damn he looked good in a suit. As Petyr wasn't an overly tall or muscular man, hadn't come from a powerful family or attended a fancy boarding school most people overlooked him. Thought he was harmless or an annoyance, and that was how Petyr liked it. Recluse spiders were about half an inch and not much to look at, gangly legs and beady eyes. They repulsed just about everyone that saw them but they were venomous and dangerous. They could kill when people least expected it. That was Petyr Baelish, overlooked by everyone until it was too late. Tywin Lannister thought he could pull Petyr's business out from under him... the idea was laughable.
Pleased with his deadly appearance Littlefinger – because he was Littlefinger, Sansa's loving Daddy wouldn't exist until he had her back in his arms – made his way down into the heart of his club. They'd reached peak time, young girls with too much money and not enough brains dressed in slutty scraps of fabric punctuated by twenty something playboys and old men who might as well have had 'yes I'm a Sugar Daddy' badges on. Of course there were the exceptions, Tyrion Lannster, the only competent member of the family, perched at the his usual booth. A brunette that looked as though she'd just escaped a catholic school by the bar and Lysa heading towards him. Wait, what?
Petyr's initial reaction was to shoot her but instantly thought better of it, couldn't go clearing out The Mockingbird. His second thought was to run, of course that was ridiculous.
Lysa grinned as she raced across the club and threw herself at him, just as Olyvar passed with a tray in hand and for a split second he actually debated kissing the blonde man just to irritate the bitch.
“Hello Lysa.” He greeted with no emotion what-so-ever. “ How nice to see you.”
“ Isn't it.” Full of her own self-importance as usual. “ I'm celebrating.” She told him as her drink sloshed, Lysa Arryn had drunk him out of gin more than once.
“Oh?” Just pretend to give a shit, yep that's it, pretend you care.
“ Robin won a competition at school today... and Cat found Sansa.” Lysa took a gulp of her drink.
“I know. I was the one who found sweet Sansa.”
Lysa perked up at that, had she been a dog... never mind.
“Really? I wouldn't be surprised if she ran off with that Baratheon boy and he dumped the little whore so she's making it all up. Attention seeking.”
Oh yes, because you'd have absolutely no experience with that now would you Lysa, Petyr wanted to shoot back but he resisted.
“ A minor possibility but the girl's bruises don't lie. And I know when people lie to me, it's what I do.”
“You've always been so smart.” Lysa all but purred as she snuggled into his chest, he hated every second of it.
O ly suddenly reappeared and without a word slipped a glass of whiskey into his right hand, it was a double and greatly appreciated. Petyr gulped the whole thing down only for Oly to take it and present him with a second glass; Lysa seemed entirely oblivious. Baelish nodded his thanks to Olyvar who just grinned with that schoolboy smile of his before he vanished off back to the bar.
With the aid of his top shelf whiskey Petyr went into auto-pilot while Lysa clung to him like a parasite, he nodded in the right places and offered fake smiles here and there, only listened for key words that might have been of some importance to him... there weren't any. It took three hours for him to escape her, two of which had been him convincing her they weren't having sex. Baelish would have had to think of Sansa just to get it up and he'd not defile her like that.
Finally Littlefinger managed to escape and flee back to his personal elevator but found Oly leant again the wall checking out just about every dark-haired man that passed by.
“ Are you following me around now, Oly?” Asked the older man with a slight smirk.
“ You know me, Boss. Hate to see you go, love to watch you leave. I do have something for you though.” The blonde pushed off from the sleek wall and took a small package from under his arm. “I have a 'present' for you from Tyrion Lannister.” Olyvar handed the brown envelope over.
“Tyrion?” Littlefinger's brow furrowed.
“ Uh-huh. Told me to give it straight to you as he was leaving.” The blonde nodded.
I t wasn't that big and clearly lined with bubble wrap, had it been from any other Lannister he'd have expected it to be a bomb.
“ Hope you get Sansa back soon.”
That got Littlefinger's full attention in an instant, his green eyes snapped up with a dangerous shine.
“I saw you bring Sansa in here and Catelyn Stark go crazy Mom. She kept edging closer to you for reassurance, you had Sansa Stark all along didn't you.” It blatantly wasn't a question. “You're getting her back though, right? You've been happier since she 'disappeared'.”
T he brothel owner smiled, Olyvar was smarter than he seemed, he'd brought Petyr a huge amount of info over the year s. Petyr's head tilted to the side ever so slightly.
“ Olyvar, do I ever let anything that's mine go?”
“Then your question is kind of redundant, isn't it?”
Baelish didn't say another word and didn't let Oly utter anything else, he just got on the elevator and headed up to his penthouse. He flicked on the lights flooding the whole place with a soft orange glow, the package was tossed down onto the kitchen island; the same place Sansa had sat to greet him on many a late night.
Petyr pulled a knife from the block and expertly sliced into the envelope from which he tugged a single sheet of paper and a photograph, with a raised eyebrow he read the note.
Our plans benefit each other, a strangely common occurrence. The photograph is Cullen Bragian, he's somewhere in Yi Ti, get to him before Father does and he'll have no way of taking over.
The little lion hated his father as much as Petyr did, probably more, not surprising he wanted to take Tywin down a peg. Cullen Bragian was a name Petyr had come across more than once, he ran the underworld of Essos. If it was him Tywin planned to use to take Petyr's business it was likely he was helping the Lannisters bring in guns, drugs and just about everything else he could. All Littlefinger had to do was offer Cullen a better deal; easy. Baelish's plan with Sansa destroyed the Lannisters reputation and social status and taking Cullen from Tywin would destroy his reach to Essos and criminal world. It was almost too easy.
Baelish glanced down at the picture, tall, raven hair, piercing hazel eyes; maybe he should have shown it to Olyvar. He left the image on the kitchen island and headed upstairs, he could deal with Cullen Bragian and Tywin Lannister in the morning.
H e could feel Lysa still clinging to him and frankly it made him want to rip his skin off. The shower was turned up at hot as it would go in an attempt to scold her off him. Water washed over his naked body satisfyingly, it burned but soon all of Lysa was gone he found the warmth relaxing. He leant his head against the cold white tile as peace rained, Petyr had been tense since he'd let Catelyn take Sansa back to Winterfell and Lysa had just made everything a million times worse. Gods he wanted his girl back! When his fingers started to prune Petyr forced himself out of the steamy shower and towelled off. With his hair still damp Petyr padded down the hall and into Sansa's room without a single scrap of fabric to cover him.
T he room looked as though she'd only left for a moment, her closet door was cracked open just as it always was, Winston was perched on the Ottoman as though waiting for her to walk through the door and her pyjamas were neatly folded on the bed. He sat down on the soft sheets and picked up Sansa's tiny little sleep shorts, a smile came to his lips when he breathed her scent in. So sweet, so intoxicating, so perfect. He felt himself twitch in want. Oh, he needed his girl back! Petyr craved her. With the rich scent of Sansa filling his lungs Petyr took himself in hand.
Yes, I did just name that OC after my cat, Bragi. I'm that sad.
Chapter 24: A Brief Flicker Of Light Amidst An Ocean Of Darkness
After two and a half weeks Cat had demanded Petyr take Lady back, she didn't like the wolfdog and didn't want Sansa getting attached to the creature. Reluctantly he'd had to give in, that was how he'd found himself knocking on the Stark Home's front door at two in the afternoon. It was Ned that opened the door only to glare at him. To the Starks he'd saved their kidnapped child but neither man liked each other and they made no attempt to hide it.
The Stark stepped aside to allow Petyr into the house, the glare only grew stronger, green eyes spotted Bran and little Rickon in the living room doing what looked to be their homework but his Sansa was nowhere to be seen. Just as the silence between Baelish and Ned started to grow long and awkward Cat appeared from the kitchen and made her way down the long hall to the front door, there was a look of relief on her face.
“Petyr, thank you for coming. It was so kind of you to let Sansa keep your dog for so long but that thing is driving me mad, growls at anyone who goes near Sansa.”
“Lady is a protective creature, she was quite taken with Sansa the instant they met.” Petyr smiled to himself remembering the look of joy that had been on his redhead's face when he'd presented her with the puppy.
“And Sansa with her, but she needs to remember that the dog is yours not hers. Also, letting her keep it any longer is only going to make it harder for her to give the animal back.”
“I understand. How is young Sansa?” He enquired sincerely, Ned didn't buy it.
“The Lass is doing her best.”
Cat nodded to herself. “The Lord returned her to us.” Oh, I'm God now am I? Muttered Petyr's mind, I returned Sansa to you and it wasn't out of the good of my heart, that's for goddamn sure. “You'll need to come up to Sansa's room.” Cat continued which quickly snapped him out of his thoughts. “She won't let the creature go.”
Baelish nodded and let Catelyn lead him up the long staircase while Ned went off to check on his sons in the living room. As they passed Arya's room at the top of the stairs she just shut the door with a insulted expression as soon as she saw him, rude but Petyr couldn't bring himself to care. At the very end of the hall was Sansa's door which Cat pushed open without even stopping to knock, he'd been in Sansa's room a few times but not once had he entered through the door.
Lady growled when Cat stepped inside but stopped dead when she saw Petyr, Sansa may have been her mistress but Petyr was in charge, there was no mistaking that. Sansa, who had been staring out the window, furrowed her brow at Lady's sudden quiet and turned to see her Daddy smiling at her, had her mother not been there she'd have thrown herself at him.
“Sansa,” Cat began slowly. “you remember Mister Baelish.” Sansa nodded, she knew him better than anyone else in the world. “He's come to collect that dog.”
The redhead grew panicked, her cerulean eyes widened. Petyr understood, Sansa needed Lady and frankly he didn't want her moping around his penthouse until he took his baby girl back.
“No.” Said Sansa assuredly but Cat really wasn't giving her a choice... as usual.
“Sansa, the dog isn't yours, it's Petyr's. It needs to go home with him.”
The younger redhead pulled Lady to her, eyes lost for something to say so Petyr went to her and crouched down with his back to Cat; he tickled Lady's ears.
“Hello Sweetling.” Cat thought he was talking to Lady but his green orbs were fixed on Sansa, every word was for her. “Don't worry, you can come home soon.”
Sansa hoped and prayed that was true but she wasn't so sure anymore, her mother hardly let her out of her sight; she felt smothered. She wanted Petyr to take Lady home and her along with them, she wanted everything to be as it had been. An idea popped into Petyr's evil little mind, he rose to his feet and turned to look at Catelyn once more.
“Maybe Sansa could help me walk Lady from time to time.” He suggested. “She's an active animal and it might be nice for Sansa to get out of the house.”
“Perhaps.” Said the older redhead, which meant no. Sansa, however, was desperate to be with her Daddy and Lady.
“... I'd like that.”
He internally grinned, he'd known his Kitten would jump at that chance, all Petyr needed to do was slowly convince Cat.
“... Could I, Mother?” The sixteen year old asked almost fearful of outright refusal.
“Not at the moment, Sansa. Maybe after the police are finished with their questions.” Cat practically sighed.
Petyr wasn't stupid, he knew Cat liked the idea of Sansa going outside again and returning to the world, school and – more importantly – church.
“It really wouldn't be a problem, as soon as Sansa is ready.” He told her quietly before turning back to his girl. “I'm sure Lady would love to see you. Goodbye Sansa.”
Suddenly Sansa threw her arms around his waist and clung to him which actually surprised not only her mother by Petyr himself, Sansa was the only one that could do that. She hugged him tight.
“Thank you for making me safe.”
A strange way of phrasing a thank you to her mother but to Sansa understood perfectly. Gods he wanted to take her right there on the hideously pink bed. Petyr smirked to himself.
“I'll see you soon, Sansa.”
He couldn't resist stroking his fingers through her hair, so beautiful, so perfect, so his. Reluctantly he left the bedroom before Sansa's mother grew suspicious, he could almost feel Sansa subconsciously reach out for him. Once Cat had shut the door behind them they headed back down the way they'd come.
“Thank you for finding her. Arya and Jon actually suggested she'd run away, silly I know but I was certain something had happened to her. Sansa would never run away, she isn't resourceful enough and she loves her home.”
Baelish's face might have been calm and sincere but on the inside his eyebrows were raised and unimpressed.
“She's a strong girl. Sansa will be alright, I'm here to help where I can as well, even if it's just letting her help walk Lady.”
They turned the corner and made their way back down the stairs.
“I can't ask you to give up your valuable time just for Sansa.” Replied Catelyn.
“Nonsense. I'll need to walk Lady anyway, it's really no trouble.” Anything to be with his darling Sansa.
“Thank you, Petyr.” She offered him a smile as they reached the front door. “Maybe we'll take you up on your offer.”
Suddenly Ned appeared from the living room, obviously they'd caught his attention.
“What offer?” Ned's voice was deep and predominantly grumpy.
“Petyr has offered to let Sansa help walk his dog.” Explained the older redhead.
“I don't know if that's a good idea, she's been through a lot.”
Translation: 'I don't want my daughter anywhere near Petyr bloody Baelish'. Petyr's only thought was too late.
“I'm sure find out. However, I have work to attend to so I'll say goodbye. Cat. Ned.”
Meanwhile up in her bedroom Sansa watched her Daddy and Lady leave from her window, her mother had forced Sansa back home, away from Petyr and now she'd taken Lady as well. The teenager wanted to cry, she was all alone again. Just when Sansa thought her day couldn't get any worse her mother burst back into her bedroom, she didn't bother turning around Sansa wanted to watch Petyr and Lady until the very last second. Blue eyes watched as her Daddy opened the car door for Lady to hop in then rounded to the driver's side, he glanced up to her window and flashed Sansa one of those real smiles, he mouthed 'goodbye Sweetling' and even though it was the smallest thing in the world it warmed her heart. She could still smell the faint scent of his aftershave and a hint of mint, it made her feel safe, almost as though he'd spiritually wrapped himself around her. That scent was the only thing keeping her sane.
“Sansa, I'm sorry the dog-” The sixteen year old cut her off abruptly.
“Lady. Her name is Lady. He said 'little lady' and it stuck.”
That wasn't a hundred percent true, she'd actually muttered those words but she couldn't let slip that she'd named her beloved creature.
“How do you know that?”
She shouldn't have known that but she just hadn't been able to take her mother referring to Lady as 'dog' or 'that thing' any longer. There was a pause where her eyes flicked back and forth.
“... He told me. D... Mister Baelish kept talking to me in the car, kept me calm. He's a nice man, kind.”
Cat sighed. “He is when he wants to be. I've known Petyr all my life and he's as dangerous as he is smart. Some days I think that man walks hand in hand with the Devil.”
Sansa rolled her eyes, here we go again. Pushed the Devil off his throne and took over Hell maybe.
“He is right about you though. You should go outside, the fresh air would do you good. You can go with Arya and Robb for walks, nice and simple.”
“Sansa, you can't hide from God's world.”
“No.” She repeated and finally turned around to face her mother. “Please let me help Mister Baelish walk Lady.”
Cat sighed, an all too regular occurrence.
“I'll think about it.” That was the best Sansa could hope for from her mother, almost defeated she flopped down onto her hated pink bed and nodded. “I'll go and make you and your brothers some lunch.”
With that Sansa was alone once again inside her room. It was so quiet without Lady, and she wanted her Daddy.
Chapter 25: Do You Trust Me?
Three weeks had passed since the press had become aware of Sansa's return and her accusation against Joffrey, as Petyr had imagined the Lannisters had scrambled to bury the whole thing; strange to think that for once they were actually innocent of any wrong doings. It wouldn't work though, Petyr had prepared for every loophole, every eventuality, there wasn't any chance of the Lannisters and Joffrey getting out of this unscathed. Joffrey had already been arrested and Baelish owned Cullen Bragian so Tywin had been forced to not only back off but put a stop to his plans all together. Petyr had his brothel back and since the Lannister had been thrown into the spot light no one would do business with them; too much of a liability. A little longer and Tywin would have nothing. He'd hardly lifted a finger, oh, it had all been too easy.
All that was left was to get his sweet Sansa back. He couldn't take Lady's depression much linger, the dog wouldn't leave him the hell alone, she followed him everywhere in his penthouse and howled until she was blue in the face if he shut the bathroom door to take a shower. If Sansa didn't love her so much he'd have dropped Lady off at a kennel and never looked back. He understood Lady's feelings though, he needed Sansa back too. If he didn't fuck that girl soon he'd lose his bloody mind! It had been almost a week since he'd suggested he take Sansa with him to walk Lady and unfortunately Petyr hadn't been able to get Cat to budge on the subject. Catelyn Stark was a notoriously stubborn woman.
As of late Baelish the brothel owner had re-emerged full force and his profits has spiked by thirty percent; much to his pleasure. He'd grown sick of Roz and Olyvar bickering over how the bar and dance floor should have been run so he'd just decided to separate the two of them, Roz watched over the girls and Olyvar did what he did best, head up the bar and keep everything running smoothly when Petyr wasn't there. Of course he'd never admit it, but Olyvar was the only person smart enough to ever be trusted to look after his empire. Since Sansa had entered his penthouse he'd been distracted from The Mockingbird and with her back with her parents he'd thrown himself back at his work. With everything he'd been doing at the club – and by the Gods had there been a long list of things for him to take care of – Petyr hadn't been able to visit his Sansa again in her room. He needed her touch, her scent, her taste, Sansa's pillows had started to smell more of him than her, Petyr missed the sound she made when she came on his tongue, and he'd even fallen asleep on Winston the bear last night.
Two days later when Baelish had almost lost his mind he'd gotten a call from Cat enquiring if he'd be willing to let Sansa go with him to walk Lady, seemed her daughter's pleas had gotten to her. As expected he'd played the kind saviour and readily agreed before racing to his beloved Aston Martin with the dog in tow.
When he finally got to the Stark house he knocked loudly as Lady's tail wagged excitedly, Petyr bottled up his own excitement as Ned answered the door. In an instant Lady barged past the bearded man and barked in search of Sansa.
“That thing still doesn't have any manners then.” Came Cat's voice as she made her way out of the kitchen at the back of the house and down towards the front door.
“What can I say? She adores Sansa.” Smiled Petyr.
Just then the teenage redhead came charging down the stairs and dropped to her knees before Lady with a grin, and wasn't that just a perfect view.
“It looks as though she's been looking forwards to this. I'll have Sansa back by three o'clock.” He turned to leave, even whistled for Lady to follow him but Cat stopped him.
“Oh, no, Robb is going with you.” What?! “I don't want Sansa being all alone.” Petyr's eye twitched. “He's stuck in traffic though.”
Hiding his annoyance the man with ash at his temples peered down at his watch.
“Could he not meet us there? I do have a very full afternoon.” Catelyn clearly didn't like the idea and Ned even less so, knowing their answer was no he’d decided to play a bold move. “Or maybe we could just cancel, do it another time.”
“No!” Cried Sansa.
That's my Kitten, right on cue. Sansa looked up at her mother with tears in her cerulean orbs and after only a few moments Cat relented; maybe she was going soft. She sighed.
“Alright, I'll have him meet you at the park.” Petyr internally grinned, that had been easier than he'd imagined to play on Cat's love for her daughter. “Excellent. Lady, car.” He ordered then held a hand out to help his darling Sansa up, the smooth skin of her palm against his was almost heavenly after so long of them being apart. “Don't worry Sansa, Robb will meet us there.”
For all Petyr cared Robb Stark could go get beheaded while a crowd cheered. The sixteen year old practically floated to the Aston Martin and into the passenger seat with Lady at her side, she looked almost as though a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.
“You've got nothing to worry about, Cat, this will be good for Sansa.”
Ned opened his mouth to speak, probably to throw some kind of threat at him but Petyr simply left uncaring as to what the Stark had to say. When he pulled away a grin pulled itself onto his lips.
“Gods you smell so good, Sweetling.” Petyr took a deep breath, he'd almost started to go through withdrawal.
“I want to come home, Daddy.” She suddenly blurted. “I need you, please, Daddy.”
“I know, Kitten, I know. Soon, I promise. Now, say it again.”
“Daddy.” She whispered in a husky voice.
Petyr's eyes closed momentarily as he practically purred, he could feel himself twitch with want and from the way Sansa rubbed her thighs together he knew she was wet.
“That's my good girl. Touch yourself.” There wasn't any mistaking it for a request, she'd missed his dominance, Sansa could never deny him.
Slowly she opened her jeans – long hideous things that shouldn't have been anywhere near his girl – and slipped her hand past her purple panties to her glistening core. Petyr knew the route off by heart since he had to pass the part to get back to his penthouse, which was probably for the best since his full attention was firmly on his Sweetling.
Her mouth fell open and her eyes fluttered shut, little moans escaped her lips as he turned down a back street determined to make the journey take as long as possible.
“... Daddy, please.”
Petyr chuckled darkly at that, his girl was so perfect, so naughty.
“Do you need me to touch you, Sweetling? Need Daddy inside you, thrusting into your body as you cling to me. My name on your lips as you beg for me. Please, Daddy. Move, Daddy.”
Petyr's breathing deepened and Sansa gasped, the hand not at her wet sex clamped down on his thigh; pain sparked through him but Petyr didn't care. He longed to pull the car over and fuck his girl unto oblivion but he knew he couldn't, Robb would grow impatient quickly. Before he could say a single word Sansa grabbed one of his hands from the wheel and pulled it to her desperately. Petyr chuckled at the back of his throat but indulged her – he could multi-task. Sansa was practically dripping wet when he finally found her folds, her nails dug into the leather seat, as she moaned.
“Did you miss me, baby girl?” Littlefinger purred. “Did you miss Daddy's cock?”
Sansa gasped. “Yes!”
“You're close, Sweetling, so close.” Calloused fingers crooked inside her wet heat, he'd missed the way she felt, the little mews of want and need. Sansa rocked on his fingers and Petyr longed to watch her but he still needed to get them to the park. “Cum for Daddy, cum on Daddy's fingers so I can jerk myself off later and still smell how sweet you are.”
That was all she needed, her Daddy's voice and talented fingers. It was like a prison with her parents and siblings but a short drive with Petyr Baelish and she had her freedom again, her happiness. Her pleasure was in sight, the radiating wave of bliss.
“Cum for Daddy.”
And she did, she could never deny him, not Petyr. Sansa's orgasm raced through her tiny body, her head fell back against the leather seat as he chest rose and fell desperate for air.
“Daddy!” She moaned when her eyes fluttered shut, that devilish smirk of his widened.
Petyr's ego purred, he was the only one that could make her feel like this, make her scream and beg, make her want and plead. She was his naughty little girl, his. Petyr could practically feel the heat radiating from her body. He'd destroyed her for any other man and Petyr was damn proud of it.
Just then the tuning to the park came up and he was forced to take his hand from Sansa. It only took a few seconds for him to park and once the Aston Martin's engine had been silenced he leant back in his seat, closed his bold green eyes and licked her rich juices from his talented fingers. Gods that girl was better than cocaine.
“Give me your hand.”
Sansa's cerulean orbs snapped open at the command, body still panting and looked at him with confusion. She opened her mouth to question him.
Petyr's eyes darkened. “Your hand, Sweetling. Now.”
He reached over and grabbed the hand she'd used to pleasure herself. Petyr sucked on Sansa's long slender fingers as though they were a special treat. Delightful and intoxicating.
“Daddy's perfect little girl.”
Green orbs glanced around the parking lot to happily find it empty, pure isolation but he didn't know how long for. Carefully he cupped her porcelain cheeks and pressed their lips together, Petyr's tongue forced Sansa's lips to part. She could taste mint on his lips and instantly it soothed her... oh how she'd missed his touch. Though a short kiss it left Sansa purring.
“Come on, Sweetling.”
He whispered as he pushed a stray strand of hair, he wanted them to just stay in that car together forever but Lady had noticed the huge expanse of grass just beyond the concrete parking lot and soon Robb would come looking for them.
Sansa looked down at her feet for a moment, almost awkwardly.
“You could just take me back to your penthouse. I don't know, pack and go to Dorne, no one will ever see us again.”
Petyr just stared at her with a gentle smile, his head slightly tilted.
“No, Sweetling. I've put too much effort into destroying Joffrey, to destroying the Lannisters and if you vanish again the media will have a fit. Also, you'd miss your family, you know you would. If you want to go to Dorne I'll take you but it's better this way, Kitten, trust me. I love you, Sweetling.”
Sansa practically deflated.
“I love you too, Daddy.”
Petyr tilted his girls chin up with a single calloused finger and slotted his lips against hers for just one more kiss.
“Come on.” He said again before climbing out and getting Lady clipped on her blue leash; Sansa didn't like it but park rules and all that.
The teenager made to take Petyr's hand in hers but yanked it back as though she'd been burnt the instant she saw her brother coming towards them with his phone pinned to his ear.
“... Sorry to bother you Mom, everything is okay. They're in the west parking lot. Nothing to worry about.” Robb hung up and stuffed the phone into his pocket before he thrust out a hand for Petyr to shake a, pointless gesture in the older man's eyes. “Hello, Mister Baelish, sorry you had to bring Sansa, I got stuck in traffic.”
“That's perfectly fine.” Replied Petyr as though he's somehow been inconvenienced. “Sansa and I had a pleasant chat.”
Robb furrowed his brow. “Really?” He glanced at his sister. “You haven't been talking too much since you came home, Sis. What were you talking about?
It was really the only thing she could have answered with without there being more questions, Robb peered down to Lady whose tail wagged back and forth while she watched Frisbees and tennis balls thrown about for other dogs to chase.
“Sansa, Sweetling, here. Why don't you take Lady to the fountain.” He flashed her a smile. “We'll follow your lead.”
She nodded, seemingly happier now Lady was by her side. “Okay D... Mister Baelish.”
Sansa wandered off down the leaf covered path with Lady bouncing up and down after a butterfly leaving Littlefinger and Robb to follow along behind like creepy chaperones. The wolfdog had only ever been in Petyr's penthouse and the luscious roof garden, Leda Park was a whole new world to Lady.
“Thank you for indulging my sister, Baelish.” Said Robb after a few moments when Sansa was just enough ahead of them to be out of ear range. “Walking your dog is the first thing she's seemed excited about since she came home to us.”
Deadly green eyes didn't leave Sansa's backside. “Of course, Robb, and people deal with trauma very differently. Sansa and Lady are connected now and it will help your sister to heal. Lady makes Sansa feel safe, so obviously she's stronger with her close by. The real Sansa Stark will emerge in time. You're sister is far stronger than she looks.”
“Ain't that the truth?” Robb sighed as he ran a hand through his curled brown hair. “Sansa's not like the rest of us, sometimes I wish Mom saw that rather than being so hard on her. Sansa is the eldest girl and Mom got it into her head that she needed to be the perfect young lady.” Another sigh. “Maybe Sansa feels smothered.”
Finally someone pulls back the wool and takes a look at what's actually going on around them. Petyr's mind yelled. Slowly following Sansa along the path with Robb at his side had been awkward and easily grated on his last nerve... thankful Robb's phone rang just before that last nerve broke and veered off for some privacy. Petyr smirked and took the opportunity to saunter over to her.
“Enjoying yourself, Sweetling?”
“I'd enjoy it more if Robb wasn't here.”
Petyr hummed to himself. “Yes, your brother's presence is a disappointment but one we can live with.”
S ansa practically purred when her beloved Daddy placed a hand on her lower back to help guide her.
“Let's go this way, Kitten.”
The day was bright, the sun shone and a gentle breeze danced through the trees. Sansa could smell the mint on Petyr's breath and strangely she found it soothing. She felt safe and loved even though he'd hardly touched or spoken to her since they'd exited the car.
“Can we go home?” Sansa asked after a few moments, there was sadness in her voice.
Petyr sighed, they'd already had this conversation once today and her constant asking had started to irritate him. Of course he understood why she was so fixated on the subject but he just couldn't risk taking her back to the penthouse.
“You keep saying that but what does it mean? Soon never comes!”
In an instant Petyr had stopped their stroll and placed a large hand on either of her shoulders, he locked their eyes, rich cerulean meeting freshly mown grass.
“Do you trust me, Angel?” He asked in a deep voice. Sansa nodded. “Then you know I'll take you home as soon as I can. The very second I can bring you home to me and Lady I will. I love you, Sweetling.”
Sansa opened her mouth to respond but the words were never able to leave her mouth thanks to Robb suddenly rejoining them.
Chapter 26: Court Is Now In Session
“I can't believe you let her go with Baelish.” Growled Ned almost the second Cat had shut the door behind Petyr and Sansa. “He's a conniving little monster.”
Cat carefully folded up the towel she'd been drying her hands on and sat down on the couch beside her husband.
“Yes, Petyr has his flaws but he'd always been good to me and Sansa adores that pet of his.” Truth be told Catelyn didn't trust Petyr as far as she could throw him but she was doing it for Sansa.
Ned sighed and leaned back on the beige couch. “He's only 'good' to you because he still holds a flame for you, you know that, Cat.”
“Petyr is aware he's nothing like that to me, if anything he's like a younger brother. Besides, I sent Robb with them, of course I'm not going to leave her alone with him.”
Another sigh. “God knows what he'd try with Sansa.” Ned's mental image of Petyr was essentially a snake with a smirk.
Cat just stared at him blankly for a moment. “Even Petyr wouldn't go that far, Ned-”
“Wouldn't he?” The sandy haired man's eyebrows shot up incredulously, Ned Stark had always been the sort of man to follow his gut and Petyr Baelish made it churn.
“No.” Persisted the redhead. “He knows what Joffrey Baratheon did to her, Petyr wouldn't put her through more. If it wasn't for that dog I wouldn't let him anywhere near our daughter.” Cat straightened her back. “And besides, he did bring her home to us.”
“Hmmm, aye, just came across her like fate.”
“Maybe God put him in her path-” Began the redhead but Ned just carried on talking.
“And what's with that wolfdog? Since when does Petyr Baelish like animals? He doesn't really strike me as the sort of man to name his dog 'Lady'.”
Ned had never liked Petyr that was no secret but there was something about the slimy git being within a mile of Sansa than had him on edge; especially when Sansa actually seemed to like him.
“According to Sansa it comes from a comment when he first got her.” There was a pause, brief and almost non-existent. “Sansa will be alright, Ned. Robb is with them and God is watching over her.”
“Aye, I hope you're right.”
Sansa lay on her horrid pink bed late at night just staring at the ceiling, only half a week ago she'd seen Petyr and already a date had been set for Joffrey's preliminary hearing. She'd never known something move that fast in the legal world; Petyr really did pay people well. Speaking of Petyr, something he'd said when they walked Lady bugged her. ' I've put too much effort into destroying Joffrey, to destroying the Lannisters ...' What had that even meant? Had Petyr planned al this from the very start? What if he'd used her and being her Daddy had just been a little perk? Sansa's father kept saying he wasn't to be trusted and Sansa was fully aware of how dangerous Petyr was. Should she really have been surprised to find out he'd used her? He'd known Cat wanted Sansa back, known where Sansa was every minute of ever day, it wouldn't have been hard to subtly move her back to the Stark house. In fact on the day her Mother had found her he'd told her to put a pair of jeans on almost as though he'd known Cat was at The Mockingbird. Of course he knew! Petyr knew everything that happened in his club. He had to have known! Petyr had used her the whole time.
Tears welled up in Sansa's cerulean orbs. She'd blinded herself with all his kindness, humour, charisma and Sweetlings and completely forgotten he was Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish, brothel owner, capitalist and Concierge of debauchery. The man could run and plot at the same time. He was dangerous, he'd all but confirmed he'd killed people when she'd asked and he managed to frame Joffrey in a heartbeat. Sansa was nothing more than a dumb pawn in his game to take over the world. How stupid she'd been, 'soon' he'd told her, Petyr wasn't ever coming fro her. Ned kept saying Petyr wasn't a good ma n; self-obsessed and evil. Sansa was sure that in his own strange way he did actually love her but Petyr would always be more important to himself than the redhead would. Or maybe she was just reading too much into the situation. No! No, you're not! He's too smart to be defeated by my mother. Too careful, too organised, too cunning. I know him, I know what he is, I know how he thinks. He used me! She'd finally realised it.
Sansa's tears were in full swing, pouring down her porcelain cheeks like two sorrowful rivers. The only man who'd ever made her happy had just used her as a pawn with benefits. Sansa was heartbroken. Her world had just crumbled... Sansa was alone again.
A month. A month Petyr had been without Sansa, he'd taken her for a walk with Lady in the park and she'd said no ever time he'd offered since. Well, Cat had said no on Sansa's behalf. Something was clearly wrong, his baby girl wouldn't just give up Lady and her Daddy. However, when he'd finally been able to go to her house he'd found she'd been moved in preparation for Joffrey's trial and even Petyr with all his connections couldn't find her. He'd started to grow concerned, he could understand why she'd been unavailable for the last two weeks but the two before it were a mystery to him.
T he trial had been pushed on account of how prominent the Lannister family was and how young Sansa and Joffrey were. Petyr only had to last eleven more days and the trial would start, he'd be able to speak to her then. He'd make sure he did. Sansa was his and he needed her. Ever since the first time he'd laid eyes on her sat at the top of her parents stairs he'd needed her. Sansa was utter perfection. A Goddess amongst men. He knew he'd never been a 'good' man but she made him want to be. All his life he'd only cared for himself and then she'd come along and brightened up his world. She was his peace, his calm, the place he kept his heart. Petyr didn't know if he had a soul but if he did it was Sansa's. All his life he'd believed no woman was worth dying for, killing for, but not dying for. The stunning redhead had destroyed all that, she was the only person in creation more important than himself. If she wanted him to die then he would die. Baelish loved Sansa Stark with everything he had, Cat was nothing more than a blip compared to what he felt for Sansa, she was his perfect angel, without her there was no point having everything.
Those eleven days until Joffrey's trial nearly killed Petyr, her pillow didn't smell of her any longer just him. He hadn't shaved, had hardly spoken. The only things Baelish had paid any really attention to was his whiskey and Lady, Lady was a living connection to his Sweetling. If he didn't see her soon he'd go mad. Sansa was like his air and he'd been cut off from her. Every day he'd seen her from his car as she went to and from school or when she snuck out to the park and then she'd been in his arms but now nothing, radio silence.
O n the day the trial was to begin Petyr awoke with a renewed vigour, he'd see her, he'd see his baby girl. Petyr showered, shaved and donned his sharpest suit, a suit that said 'I'm clearly dangerous but you'll trust me anyway', it was a black three piece with a tie the color of Sansa's eyes. He had to look good for his girl.
Petyr left Lady with Olyvar – the man had always been a dog person – and headed down to the court house. As soon as he was signed in Petyr went on a quest in search for his darling redhead but it failed, she was nowhere in sight. Stupid! Of course they'd keep her out of the public eye until she was on the stand. Green eyes glanced around to find Lannisters, lawyers and Starks dotted around the hallway but no Sansa. The closest he could come up with was Arya and Jon; how disappointing. He put on his best sincere face and headed over to them.
“Hello, Jon, Arya.” He smiled softly.
“Oh, hello, Mister Baelish.” Nodded Jon while Arya just stared at him distastefully.
“How is young Sansa?” Petyr asked innocently.
“ She's holding up. I think everything that's happened finally hit her, she's been very quiet, crying. Keeps yelling for her Daddy in her sleep.”
“Oh?” Petyr's expression didn't change at all but on the inside he'd lit up.
“Yeah, keeps calling out for her Daddy, she never calls Dad that.” Petyr was cheering inside his head while Arya spoke.
“She's in a private room with our parents, she'll be out when she's called to the stand.” Said Jon getting them back to the subject and away from Sansa's nightmares.
“Of course, of course.” Petyr kept his voice gentle. “I can't imagine how terrified she must be, having to relive this all again for a jury. Please send Sansa my best.”
Jon shot his hand out for the older man to shake. “I will, Mister Baelish. And thank you again for finding our sister.”
“Sansa saved herself, I was just in the right place at the right time.”
That was exactly what he told the court several hours later when he was called to the stand to give his testimony. He knew to add in the perfect amount of detail to suggest he was recalling the information rather than lying through his teeth, knew pause when asked to tell the jury what Sansa had looked like when he found her scared and alone after months of captivity. Petyr could tell the prosecute the sky was green and he'd have believed him. The jury ate up every word. By the time his testimony ended the jurors thought Petyr a saint, clearly they didn't who who Littlefinger really was.
As he left the stand to return to his seat Sansa was called and she finally appeared, let into the room by an abnormally tall, bald bailiff whose name tag simply read 'B. Shannon'. Petyr wanted to race to Sansa and hold her tight but he couldn't, had to keep up the act. Ned and Cat dressed her in her school uniform, bulky and horrid, it made her look twelve rather than sixteen. None of the light that usually filled her stunning blue eyes was there, she looked deflated. Gods he wanted to take her home, being without her was killing him.
Baelish sat and listened to her every word, each answer and every question answered perfectly just as he'd told her to all that time ago. So perfect, when she'd first moved in with him she'd been a terrible liar but there she was doing it wonderfully, she might have even put him to shame. There were pauses and breaks, tears and silences, Petyr truly couldn't have done better himself. Had he not been in on the plan he'd have not suspected a thing. The only slip up had been when she glanced up just enough before she left the stand and saw him. Bold green eyes meeting rich cerulean. Just that single moment of eye contact had lifted a weight he'd not known he'd been holding. Gods he loved her, beautiful, smart, and had learnt to play the game just like him. Oh how he wanted her.
Chapter 27: Broken
Sansa pushed the women's bathroom door open after she and the tall bailiff left the court room, the echoing hubbub threatening to follow her.
“You okay, Miss Stark?” The tall bailiff asked easily.
“Yes.” Answered Sansa, she'd grown tired of constantly being followed around. “Just need to use the bathroom is all.”
With that Sansa headed into the large and rather cold room, the walls were a horrid half and half of white and bottle green tiles with a wall of cubicles on once side and sinks on the other. The teenager made her way towards the closest stall but before she could push the door a large hand grabbed her by the waist and pulled her backwards.
“Hello, Sweetling.” Petyr whispered into her ear huskily. “I missed you.” He said before kissing her neck. How had he even known she'd go in there? Stupid question, he knows everything.
Sansa pushed his hands from her as though he had some kind of disease and backed away from him, Petyr's brow furrowed.
“No.” Was all she managed to say when he reached for her again.
“Come to Daddy.” He told her sternly but Sansa shook her head.
“I said 'no'.” The redhead backed away further until her back hit the white stall door.
Petyr straightened his suit jacket as he spoke, voice deep, under normal circumstances Sansa would have melted into his touch, his rich suits and deep tone but these weren't normal circumstances.
“What's wrong, Sweetling?”
“Don't 'Sweetling' me!” She shouted before realising someone would surly hear them if she didn't quiet down, Sansa forced herself to take a breath. Petyr tilted his head in that way he had, there was a moment of silence where Sansa couldn't look at him.
“When I first met you in your car I was scared,” she began quietly as tears threatened to well in her cerulean orbs. “I just wanted to be free from Joffrey and when I found out you'd been stalking me I should have been terrified but I wasn't.” Petyr just stood and listened. “You were exciting and fun and made me feel safe and loved. You gave me freedom... but you didn't did you?” Baelish opened his mouth to speak, probably some smartass comment but Sansa got there first. “You turned me into your pawn, and when I wasn't useful you'd lock me up in your penthouse like a Christmas decoration in the attic and gave me a dog as company to keep me pacified.” Sansa finally turned to face him, tears slowly slipping down her cheeks. “What do you want, Petyr?”
He raised an eyebrow, she'd said Petyr no Daddy or anything even remotely similar just Petyr... and it broke his heart.
“I thought you knew what I wanted, Sweetling.” His voice remained deep and dominant but somehow quiet and gentle.
“I was wrong. Tell me, please tell me, what do you want?”
He hated seeing his darling angel like this, especially knowing he'd caused her pain. Silence stretched on for a time, each moment leading them closer and closer to being discovered by either the bailiff or some random woman needing the bathroom.
“... Everything. I want everything and I would risk everything to get what I want.” He finally told her, his green eyes firmly locked on her.
Sansa's tears finally burst forth at his words and Petyr's initial reaction was to pull her into his arms and comfort her but the second he showed any sign of moving Snasa shuffled away again towards the bathroom door.
“You told me I was your everything.” She sobbed. “And you already had me.”
Sansa wiped her tears away quickly and turned towards the dark bathroom door but suddenly stopped with her hand on the door handle.
“I won't change my story, won't tell them the truth.” Said Sansa as she got control of her emotions. “I love you too much to send you to prison, Petyr. Take care of Lady for me. I don't want to see you again.”
With that Sansa left the women's bathroom leaving green eyes man just stood there. When he'd first met Sansa the dark clouds that hung over his life had cleared away but as that door squeaked shut and he stood alone in the women's bathroom they rolled back in to obscure everything.
Littlefinger had rigged the trial too well for Joffrey's outcome to be anything other than guilty leaving the Lannisters to scurry around with appeals and trying to save their reputation. The jury's judgement had never been in question but over the months that Petyr had been separated from Sansa, forced to see her only in that court room had all but killed him. ' 'tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all' Tennyson had written, Petyr Baelish begged to fucking differ.
The staff at The Mockingbird had grown scared of their boss, they all knew he was dangerous but in recent months they'd grown to fear him. Olyvar had even stopped his jokes. Tywin and the other Lannisters still existed of course but only in the way that people looked at the supermarket's own brand ice cream before deciding to buy Häagen-Dazs. He'd risked everything to get what he wanted and he'd certainly gotten what he wanted but he'd lost everything. Sansa had been right, she was his everything and she'd been right there in love with him. What was the point of having the most powerful criminal empire in Westeros in his grasp without a queen to rule by his side.
If Petyr didn't touch his darling redhead soon he was going to lose it. Of course he'd tried to talk to her since that day in the women's bathroom but she'd pushed him away at every turn. Soon after the trial had ended Baelish had snapped and gone back to stalking his girl, he was there when she walked into school in the mornings and again when she left, he watched her draw her pink bedroom curtains at night. Petyr had even been there for the school debate she'd competed in against a school from Dorne. He'd taught her everything she'd needed to know to win any debate, taught her how to win any argument and destroy anyone's come back. Sansa was so much more like him that her own family, His Sweetling. His!
A little over six months since the trial's end and a Stark family vacation was when Harold 'Harry' Harding had entered Sansa's life. Petyr's first reaction had been to kill the boy and bury him deep in the woods where no one would ever find his body until deforestation grew too extreme, but Sansa didn't appear interested in the annoying blonde so Petyr held of on his murderous intentions.
That all changed just before her seventeenth birthday. Baelish had been watching her after school as was his usual routine – if she knew he was there or not Petyr didn't know nor care – when the goody-goody blonde leaned in and pressed a kiss to Sansa's pink lips. He'd 'lost it' didn't quite cover the level of rage Baelish felt. He'd never been a violent man, he'd killed and tortured but never been violent, but that day he'd marched into his closed club straight up to the bar, downed half a bottle of bourbon in one gulp and then smashed everything in sight. Every single bottle until all that remained were tiny alcohol covered shards of glass.
“Em, boss-?” Oly tried but Baelish cut him off instantly with a deadly glare forcing him to scurry away.
That was how he'd ended up with a bill for new bar shelves, liquor and a new bar top. The old one had a huge crack in the black marble and several hundred scratches.
Fuck, he needed his girl back! Needed her back before that blonde bastard got it into his head that Sansa was available. Sansa was his, all his, no one else's just his! Not Joffrey's, not Harry-fucking-Harding's but his, Petyr's, only his.
Chapter 28: Notes And Lies
Sansa's birthday had ended up being over the top, her parents had taken her and the family, Jeyne and even Harry to lunch to celebrate. Truth be told Sansa thought they'd just felt guilty for having missed her sixteenth, and in the months - almost a year now - since they'd gotten her back had been trying to indoctrinate the redhead with love. She'd been surprised when Cat and Ned had approved of Harry Harding as a friend but she should have seen it coming, he was a goody-two-shoes and his parents were heavily involved with the church. The redhead liked Harry, he was sweet and kind, funny, tall... sexy, but there was something about him that just didn't sit right with her; and she didn't know what it was. Maybe Petyr really had ruined her for any other man.
When Harry and Jeyne had left Sansa vanished to her bedroom claiming she had a headache – Sansa was actually surprised her parents had believed that – it was still rather early in the afternoon but at least now she was home Sansa could go at her own pace. The redhead made her way into the sickening pink bedroom intent on changing and maybe just reading a book and having some peace but stopped dead upon seeing a reasonably large gift bag sat on her bed. Slowly and almost cautiously Sansa stepped towards the sky blue bag with white tissue paper that stuck up at odd angles. She eyed it curiously along with the single red rose settled beside the bag. Sansa took a deep breath, the room smelt faintly of cigarettes, bourbon and mint. Petyr. He'd been there for sure, Sansa didn't have a doubt in her mind; of course it was him. For a lean and - for a lack of a better term – skinny man he sure as shit had an epic amount of upper body strength, he'd claimed all the way up to her bedroom with hardly anything to use for purchase; impressive. He'd done it before too.
Tears had already started to well up by the time she sat down beside the blue logo-less bag. Petyr had tried so many times to talk to her but she'd shut him down and pushed him away at every turn, it had killed her inside but she'd done it. Sansa would never stop loving him, but she couldn't trust him. The newly turned seventeen year old tentatively picked up the stunning rose and raised it to her nose, so fragrant, so beautiful. Carefully she set it back down and took a deep breath as she eyed the bag, could have been anything knowing Petyr bloody Baelish; lingerie, chocolates, anal plug.
Inside she found a present wrapped in purple with a silver bow, opening it revealed her gift to be a silver jewellery box in an antique style. Baroque was Sansa's first thought as cerulean orbs gazed down at the intricate decoration, on the top dead centre were two engraved words in a lovely calligraphy. Sansa ran her finger over it; My Sweetling . Just those words and a small 'X' as a kiss. Sansa didn't have the words to describe how stunning the silver box was, the sort of thing she would have chosen herself, he knew her so well. The redhead ran her thumb over the engraving to make sure it was really there. All the presents, everything he'd given her she'd left in her room at Petyr's penthouse... the room he'd decorated just for her, to make her happy. The necklace she'd worn for years and the new jewellery box were all that remained of him and their time together.
Sansa made to set her gift on the night stand where her carousel had once stood – Gods she missed that carousel – but stopped dead when she heard a rattle. Something was inside, once again knowing Petyr it could have been just about anything. Sansa flipped the lid up only to be faced with a USB. Should she watch whatever was on it? She had no idea what was on it but he'd put it in there on purpose, he'd wanted her to see it... and Sansa couldn't deny her curiously.
A few months ago Jon had given her his old laptop so she could do her college applications – which Sansa hated because the only place she wanted to go was Dorne and her parents weren't ever going to let that fucking happen – of course her mother had ensured it was parental locked, seriously does anyone trust me? I'm seven-fucking-teen! Still it was more than she'd had before. Sansa slipped from the bed, grabbed her laptop from the dresser and plugged in the red USB. The only thing on there was a video entitled 'Happy Birthday, Sansa', she loaded it and leaned in curiously.
The redhead face upturned in a painful smile seeing Petyr's kitchen in the penthouse, there was a rather large cupcake sat on the floor. Off camera she heard Petyr whistle sharply and then heard paws charge across the hardwood and Lady into fame only to devour almost all the cake in one huge bite, Lady's happiness forced Sansa's awkward smile to grow into a huge grin. The floor was soon covered in icing as was Lady's paws and face while her tail wagged madly. The tears finally fell then. The camera was clearly stationary, much too steady to be hand-held, a fact that was only proven when Lady started to wander off camera and Petyr appeared and snapped his fingers at a splatter of frosting she'd left; the wolfdog shot back to it. Sansa loved Lady's enthusiasm but was more focused on Petyr in that moment. She didn't know what had happened to him, his hair was longer and had started to curl at the edges, which she actually kind of liked, wasn't often anyone saw him even remotely dishevelled. His face had covered over with stubble rather than the sharp-edged moustache and goatee she was used to, and – probably most surprising – he was dressed in jeans and a plain green t-shirt; Sansa hadn't even known he owned t-shirts. Petyr didn't look ill or as though he'd been neglecting himself exactly, he just didn't look like Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish, brothel owner, lord of chaos and innuendo. Then again, Lady had made one serious mess so it had probably been the best choice of attire.
When the animal finished cleaning up every last crumb from the floor she bounced up at Petyr in an attempt to lick him and show her gratitude, Petyr actually smiled, he'd always been indifferent about Lady as far as she could tell, but watching the video it seemed that over the year they'd been apart he and the wolfdog had grown closer. Has it really been that long? Sansa almost jumped when Petyr's voice reached her.
“Lady, say happy birthday to Sansa.” He ordered softly as he pointed to the camera. “Go on.”
The next thing Sansa knew Lady had bounded over to the camera and started to lick the screen, that had Sansa in tears again. After a moment the green-eyed man pulled Lady away and sat down Indian style with Lady's paws on his legs. She watched as he smiled sorrowfully up at the camera.
“Happy birthday, Sweetling. I'm afraid Lady ate your cake.” That made her chuckle. “Daddy loves you.”
With that it all went blank. Nothing, just stopped. Suddenly anger flooded through Sansa, she loved him so much but he'd lied to and used her at every opportunity. Like a flash she ripped the USB out of her laptop, tossed it into the jewellery box and hid both under her bed before throwing herself into her pillow to cry. Sansa loved and missed them so much but she could trust Petyr.
Petyr stood outside hidden in the tree line staring up at Sansa's bedroom window which was lined with candy pink curtains. He'd been all but camped there since he'd left her present on the bed, Petyr had smoked half a box of cigarettes in the time he'd been waiting for her to come home and his eyes hurt from lack of sleep. He knew she was in there, he'd seen her go in and hour or so ago and just when he'd started to think she'd never reappear there she was in the window. For Baelish everything stopped, the clouds cleared and the sun came out once again. Sansa Stark was his peace and there she was behind a pane of glass.
The green-eyed man's brow furrowed when he spotted her writing something in a large notebook and even more so when she turned it and pressed the paper against the window. She knew Petyr was there, probably always did. He couldn't read the text but Petyr was a man who prided himself on his preparedness and easily tugged a tiny set of binoculars from his hoodie pocket. Thank you , that was all it said, nothing else, but it was more than she'd given him in months and Petyr lapped it up. He grinned.
After Sansa's thank you note Baelish found a new sense of happiness, he had hope again. That evening he shaved the stubble from his face, had his hair cut and donned his most expensive suit. He was the old Petyr Baelish again and Olyvar noticed instantly. The entirety of The Mockingbird's staff felt a wave of relief pass over them.
Come the end of the night and Petyr and Oly were joking with one another again, the whole vibe in his club lightened. For the first night that month he didn't drain a bottle of bourbon but instead went to bed with Lady curled up next to him rather than passing out on the black leather couch. He'd had a good day.
Sansa was in the school library when Harry appeared at lunch, big blue eyes beaming and blonde hair shining like the sun.
“Hi, Sansa.” He greeted Sansa with a smile.
She looked up from her text book and nodded her head.
Suddenly he crashed down in the seat beside her and dumped his backpack on the desk. Sansa liked Harry, he was funny and pleasant to chat with, just about every girl in school had a crush on him, but since she'd returned to school he'd gone out of his way to befriend her; why, Sansa didn't quite know.
“So, my parents are out of town and I was thinking you could come over to my place-”
Sansa froze and went deaf to the rest of his sentence. She'd not been expecting that, he was nice to her sure but she'd not thought he'd want to hang out with her... or was it something else?
“...like.... like a date?” She asked cautiously.
“Yeah.” Harry grinned. “Why not? I like you. Just us, a movie and a pizza.”
It sounded nice but there was no way she'd get away with it. “I can't, my Mom-” He cut her off.
“No problem. Just tell her I'm part of a tutoring group for younger kids, coz, well I was. Say I asked you to help, I've seen your English scores, you'd be a great tutor. Come on, your parents love me.”
Sansa was cautious, it did sound like a nice change but if her parents – or more correctly her mother – found out she'd be grounded for life. Then again it was a night away from her mother and college applications.
The redhead nodded. “Alright, Harry. Sounds good.”
“Awesome!” He dumbed his hands against the desk which quickly earned him a glare from the Librarian. “I'll pick you up about five o'clock tomorrow night, yeah? I'll send you a text with bits about that tutoring thing, sure your Mom will want to know everything."
“Sure.” Sansa nodded.
“Cool, see you tomorrow, Red.”
Harry rose to his feet, tossed his backpack over his shoulder and then leaned down and pressed a kiss to Sansa's cheek; she'd not expected that.
As she watched him walk away Sansa couldn't get rid of the feeling that she'd not done the right thing.
Sansa's jewellery box...
Chapter 29: My Feet Carry Me
When Sansa got home from school she made quick work of her remaining homework knowing that if she didn't do it the second she got in she'd be accused of 'being lazy' or 'being irresponsible'. Once it was done and Sansa had enjoyed a good fifteen minutes of peace, Sansa re-read the text Harry had sent then headed down to her father's study where she found her parents.
“Dad, Mom?” She said as she walked in. “Em, Harry invited me to help out at a tutoring program he's part of.”
Cat was instantly on her... as expected.
“Tutoring program?” She questioned.
“Yeah, he helps kids that are struggling with different subjects, mainly English and Math. Apparently the guy who usually covers English moved and can't do it anymore, so he asked me to help him since my grades are good. I'd like to help.”
Before Petyr, Sansa had been an awful liar but that was then, now she could lie her way through just about anything.
“That's a good lass,” began her father “always helping others. I'm proud of you.”
“How long is it? Where is it?”
Sansa internally sighed, that was her Mother, straight to the questioning.
“It's five until nine and it's all at the youth centre. Please, I'd like to help them if I can.”
“I don't know.” Said Cat as she mulled the information over.
“Oh come on, Cat. She'll be doing a good thing and Sansa will be with Harry. She'll be fine.”
Well, it's nice to know someone's in my goddamn corner, grumbled the redhead. Reluctantly Cat relented.
“Very well, I'll come and pick you up at nine sharp.”
“No, Harry said he'd drop me off after. I think he wanted to take me for something to eat after as well as a thank you.”
Her mother spoke quickly. “I don't want you out that late Sansa.”
Just when Sansa thought she wasn't going to get away with her father came to her rescue once again, he'd seen the sadness in Sansa's eyes and as a loving father leapt to fix it.
“Cat, it's just once and Harry is trying to say thank you. This will be good fro Sansa.”
At that her mother relented once more, her daughter had never asked for such a thing before and it wasn't as though she wanted to go to some depraved house party, this was a tutoring session, Sansa wanted to help those less fortunate. This was a good deed.
“Very well, but not a moment after ten.”
Sansa nodded and thanked her parents before racing off upstairs to shower and get ready. She hadn't been sure when Harry had asked her earlier that afternoon but now that her mother had caved Sansa was actually looking forwards to the evening, excited even.
Water ran over her pale body, warm and soothing. She could trust Harry, he wasn't like Petyr. Sansa suddenly stopped dead as water poured over her naked body. No! Harry and Petyr are nothing alike! Petyr lied, he lied and now he's gone and that's how it has to be.
Once her long red hair was dry she braided it over her shoulder and set about finding something to wear. Sansa threw open her wardrobe but all she found was bland and boring, nothing like the beautiful outfits Petyr had given her. Maybe it was materialistic but she did miss her colorful dresses and silk underthings. The way he'd looked at her when she wore them for her, the hunger in his green eyes. STOP! You're doing it again. Sansa took a deep breath to steady herself and picked out her least boring and nondescript outfit; a sleeveless red dress with a gathered waist that she often wore at Christmas. The redhead longed for the heels that had once adorned her feet but no, they were lost to her now.
At five o'clock sharp Harry knocked on the door only for Arya to answer, she smirked in that deadly way of hers.
“Oh, hey Harry.” She tilted her head towards the stairs. “Sansa! You're boyfriend is here.”
Sansa hurried down the stairs and shoved her younger sister aside, thankfully Arya took the hint and went back into the living room to carry on with whatever she'd been doing; Sansa didn't much care.
“Hey Sansa.” Greeted the blonde with a smile. “You look nice.”
You should have seen my blue lace basque, though Sansa but she settled on something less risqué and obvious.
“Thank you, Harry.” She smiled.
From the kitchen her mother suddenly appeared with a smile, she came to a stop beside the front door.
“Sansa, you can stay for something to eat once the tutoring is finished like I said but I want you back no later than ten. No later.”
Sansa nodded, she'd already been told all this.
“I never get to stay out so late.” Complained Arya from the living room but everyone ignored her.
“Don't worry, Missus Stark, I'll have her back by ten on the dot.”
“Thank you, Harry.” Cat smiled, if Sansa hadn't been more focused on getting out of the house she'd have thought her mother trusted Harry more than she did her. “Such a good boy.”
Sansa and the blonde escaped the house as fast as possible after that and headed over to Harry's house. The drive was short, no more than fifteen minutes, and repetitively peaceful, there wasn't any music which Sansa found odd since she'd grown used to Petyr constantly playing something; usually some sort of classic rock.
“Here we are.” Said Harry as he pulled into the driveway and snapped Sansa out of her thoughts.
Cerulean orbs looked the place over, it was large and clearly old with a H build in above the front door. The H had weathered so she assumed the house had been in the Harding family for generations.
“Your home is beautiful.” She told him just for something to say.
“Yeah,” he smirked “come on in, it gets better.”
With that he hopped out the car and headed up to the house while fiddling with his keys. Petyr would have rounded the car and opened the door for her like a gentleman... For the love of God! Stop! Thinking! About! Petyr fucking Baelish! The redhead forced herself out of the car only for it to beep as Harry locked it and made her way into the house, Harry still had that smirk on his face.
She hated it. The entire ground floor, though large, had a horrible layout, too big archways and everything was dark wood, it looked like a bad haunted house. It ha d obviously been modernised of course but to Sansa it just didn't gel together, like someone had stuffed on house inside another. Yet, Sansa was nothing if not polite. She let Harry hang her coat up and guide her into the living room – his hand a little too low on her back – and to the couch.
“Thought we could order right away, don't know about you but I'm starving.” Harry flashed her a smile.
Thirty minutes later and they were cuddled up on the couch eating pizza and watching a crappy Rom-Com. 'Thought you'd like it' Harry had said but no, no she didn't, she hated this kind of movie and always had been, to her they were just the same movie over and over again with a few details changed; she liked horror and sci-fi . Harry didn't notice her not watching though because he was too busy touching her, his hands slipped over her shoulders and down her flank as she ate... rather unskilled in Sansa's opinion.
Almost the instant she set her plate down Harry was kissing her neck, hands pushing her down onto the couch so he could lie on top of her. His kisses though confident and dominant, were sloppy and amateur. Harry made short work of flipping them and started to rub himself up against her as they kissed, he pawed at her then started to undo his belt. Where the fuck is the foreplay? The blonde seemed more interested in himself than her. In a desperate attempt for something Sansa pulled Harry's hands from his belt and placed them on her ass trying to encourage a spank or at least a squeeze but no, his hands just shot back to his belt and he carried on shoving his jeans down.
I f he wasn't going to be rough with her or engage in any kind of foreplay Sansa was going to see if she could force him into it. The redhead unbuttoned his plaid shirt with nimble fingers exposing his toned chest, with a smile she started to press open mouthed kisses to the soft flesh she found until all the buttons were open. With a naughty smirk she teasingly bit down on his nipple.
“Crap! Sansa that fucking hurt.”
No it didn't. She'd not done it to hurt him, hardly even added any pressure. Before she could say a single word Harry grabbed her and stated to push her skirt up to her hips. She wasn't wet, hadn't even gotten close but Harry didn't seem to really care, she doubted he wanted to hurt her he just seemed oblivious to her needs; Sansa didn't want this. The redhead pushed him away softly but Harry didn't get the hint, so she pushed again. Reluctantly he let her go.
“Come on, Sansa, don't go being a prude. God, you're not made of glass. The others don't act this way.” He laughed while Sansa's head snapped up.
Others ?! How many women had he lured back to this crap hole for unimpressive sex? He hadn't done a single thing to try and make her feel good, it was all about him and then when she didn't like it he had the audacity to make out that it was her fault. A prude? Sansa was as far from a prude as someone could get! She'd been willing to give him another chance, maybe subtly teach him how to touch her and what she liked but no, not anymore.
“And it's not my fault you have the sexual prowess of a newly neutered squirrel!”
Sansa shot to her feet, her dress skirt fell back down around her legs and she marched towards the front door.
“Hey, Sansa, what the hell. Things were going good. Can't you just mellow or something like me?”
She turned back as she reached for her coat. “Harry, if you mellow anymore you'd be dead.”
With that she threw open the front door and stomped out onto the driveway, she wasn't a prude but she'd have liked a little attention rather than being a glorified hole.
“What you gonna tell your parents?” He called out from the doorway, didn't offerer her a ride just wanted to know if he was going to get angry Starks complaining to his parents. “Sansa!?”
“Nothing. I'll just say it got cancelled, so leave me a lone. Go call one of your other girls!”
Thankfully Harold 'asshole' Harding didn't follow her just let Sansa walk off into the night. She made her way down the street and, when the anger had subsided, started to cry. Maybe she'd overreacted, Harry wasn't as experienced as she was – she shouldn't have been as experienced as she was – but he'd treated her as though she were the problem. He believed she'd been kidnapped and abused, of course none of that was true, but everything still had to be about him.
At least she'd learnt they would never work as a couple, he was too focused on himself and Sansa could never be with a boy, she needed someone older, someone more dominant but loving. Joffrey had tried to own her, Petyr had flat out used her and Harry was apparently a self-centred womaniser. It forced her to tears, she was seventeen now and more isolated than when she had been a fifteen year old being stalked by the only person who seemed to understand her.
T he night air was chilled her skin but Sansa didn't care she just kept walking while lost in her thoughts. She only stopped when a woman dressed even more provocatively than a stripper in heat bumped into her, the woman threw a sorry over her shoulder as she strutted to a car. It was only then that Sansa left her mind and realised where she was, she'd just assumed she was headed towards home but her subconscious had betrayed her, the redhead's feet had carried her to The Mockingbird . Petyr, she wanted Petyr and as much as she kept trying to deny it she couldn't anymore. She just wanted her Daddy.
Glancing down to her watch she saw it read five-fifty-two, well, her evening with Harry hadn't lasted very long. Maybe she could get Petyr to drive her home... and it meant she got to see Lady; oh how she missed that beautiful animal. With a deep breath she walked over to the club entrance all black and purple lit up like a BDSM Christmas. Sansa gripped her coat tighter as she tried to step inside only for a black man so tall that for a second Sansa thought he was on stilts blocked the door with his arm.
“Oh hell no, not a chance, Sweet Pea.” He said sternly which earned a chuckle from the other club goers gathered outside. “Bible club is on the other side of town.”
Suddenly Sansa remembered what she was wearing, not the worst of her outfits but certainly something that screamed sheltered virgin.
“I need to see Petyr Baelish.” She told him as confidently as she could.
The man snorted and folded his arms to look even more intimidating. “Yeah, right, what could you possibly want with Littlefinger?”
“She's good., let her in, Kett.”
Sansa looked over to find a blonde man stood at the corner putting out a cigarette, he crushed it underfoot then made his way over to Kett and Sansa.
“Come on, man, she weighs a buck twenty-five soaking wet. No way I'm letting someone her age in.”
“I'm seventeen.” The redhead wasn't sure why she felt the urge to point that out.
“Good for you, ain't changing my mind.”
The blonde smiled easily. “Percival, seriously, it's fine. She wont be on the floor long. Promise. Anyone queries, send them to me.”
There was a pause then the tall black man shook his head and relented.
“Alright but on your head be it.”
The man – Percival Kett – stepped aside finally and allowed Sansa and the thin blonde man into the club. The last time Sansa had seen Petyr's club she'd been taken home by Cat, it had been empty then and frankly she was surprised by how many people fitted inside.
“You're Olyvar, right?” She asked as the blonde lead her across the huge room.
“That's me, daring.” He shouted over the hubbub then plucked a napkin from a passing waitress'' tray and presented it to her. “Dry those pretty blues of yours.”
“Thank you.” Sansa took the napkin and gently blotted at her face.
“I'm glad you came back, Sansa. The boss went dark after you left, I'm actually worried about him.” There was a pause, brief and hardly there. “And that dog, he takes Lady bloody everywhere.
Maybe he really does miss me, Sansa wondered to herself. They came to a stop by Petyr's personal elevator, the one that only went to the parking structure and his penthouse.
“I'll call him, tell him to come down and get you.” He reached for his phone.
“No need.” The teen told him absent-mindedly as she stepped forwards and punched in the code to call the elevator.
“You know the boss' elevator code? Of course you know the code.”
Olyvar leaned against the wall beside the silver doors and just looked at her, as though trying to figure out how Petyr had been so affected by such a young and seemingly innocent girl.
“You knew I was up there the whole time, didn't you.” It wasn't a question.
Olyvar smiled. “I knew there was a girl, yeah. Didn't know that girl was Sansa Stark until your Mom took you home that day. Like I said, I'm glade you're back, you make him happy.” A pause. “I don't think he's ever actually been happy, content yeah but never happy. You're good for him.”
Tears built up in Sansa's eyes at that but the ding of the elevator pulled her attention back from sadness. With a thank you Olyvar Sansa stepped onto the elevator and headed up to Petyr's penthouse.
The elevator let out a small ping when it arrived at Petyr's penthouse and the silver doors rolled open admitting her to the dark opulent home. Suddenly the thought that she'd made a huge mistake slapped her in the face. Too late though, she was there and there was no turning back, Sansa didn't know if she was pleased or disappointed about that. Slowly she made her way towards the piano and caught sight of herself in a mirror on the wall to the left of the elevator. She just looked at herself for a moment, her face was tear-stained and Percival had been right she did look like she should have been at Bible club. With a deep breath she ventured further into the room, the lights were all off and Petyr wasn't anywhere to be seen.
“Petyr?!” No response, only silence answered her.
Maybe Olyvar was wrong and he's not here. She dropped her bag down on the leather couch as she passed it on her way up the stairs. Her feet carried her towards her beautiful blue bedroom but just like the rest of the penthouse was covered in darkness, not a single thing had been moved since she'd left save for the suitcase she'd taken with her to the cabin, that had been sat neatly by her closet door, but other than that her room looked more like a memorial.
Something caught Sansa's attention then, the noise had always been there but it wasn't until she got close enough that it transitioned from background noise to a noticeable buzz followed by light rhythmic bangs. The guest room at the back of Petyr's penthouse, that was where it was coming from. Almost cautiously the redhead made her way down the hallway to the small spare room, when she reached the door – which was cracked open ever so slightly – Sansa realised what the noise was and that the penthouse wasn't abandoned as she'd previously believed. She jumped when the door creaked further open and Lady popped her nose out with a growl but it died a moment later when the animal realised who Sansa was. Lady bounced up onto her hind legs to lick at her Mistress' cheek. Sansa's heart soared.
When she managed to get Lady to calm down Sansa pushed the door the rest of the way open and stepped inside to see Petyr stood by his treadmill, he wore no shirt and had his headphones in. Blue eyes instantly found the scar running down his chest and then the gun he had pointed at her head.
“Sweetling?” Sansa actually smiled, she's missed that world.
“You're going to have to stop pointing guns at me every time I come in here unannounced.” She tried to joke and as if he'd forgotten he was even holding it Petyr set the handgun down on a small side table.
He looked better than in the video he'd sent for her birthday but still not the Petyr she knew.
“Why are you here, Sweetling? Thought you were getting all frisky with Harry Harding.” There was a slight bite to his tone.
Of course you know about Harry. Christ, you probably know who his first fucking kiss was with. It was then Sansa spotted the half empty vodka bottle beside the gun, he never drinks vodka, and there was only one explanation, the green-eyed man had been working off anger.
“I... I was with him but-” She cut herself off, eyes falling to the dark hardwood floor and then Petyr was hardly an inch in front of her, almost as though he'd teleported.
“Did that prick hurt you?” He asked in a deep, volatile tone.
Sansa had no doubt in that moment that if she said yes Harry would wake up dead in a ditch the next morning.
“No. Just my feelings.”
“Then why have you been crying?” This time his voice was far calmer, loving.
As if sensing her sadness Lady pressed into Sansa's side.
“I don't know.” She told him softly, a tiny hint, a flare, of sorrow hidden in her tone. “I hate you for what you did, I do. You used me... but... I'm miserable without you.” Tears welled in her cerulean orbs again. “You're the only person who's ever made me happy.”
“What are you saying, Sansa?” Petyr asked, his head tilted slightly, green eyes strangely soft.
A pause stretched on between them and at some point within it Sansa let the tears fall. She'd been lying to herself for so long, she didn't need him, she didn't love him, she didn't want him, her body didn't crave his touch, all lies the redhead had told herself. Forced on herself.
“... I love you, Daddy. I need you.” Her voice shook.
Before sobbing could descend Petyr had Sansa snared in his arms tightly with his face buried deep in her neck so as he could breathe her in.
“I love you too, Sweetling.”
He smelt of mint, cigarette smoke and alcohol and she hadn't realised just how much she'd missed that concoction. Sansa opened her mouth to speak but all the wind was suddenly knocked out of her when he lifted and slammed her into the wall beside the door. Lady jumped. Petyr's hands were strong and forced Sansa's legs apart. His lips crashed against hers in a fierce kiss and Sansa felt a wave of what could only be described as relief wash over her entire body, this was what she needed, craved even. Rough. To be dominated. She needed to be Petyr Baelish's little girl.
Petyr yanked Sansa's long red hair forcing her head back to expose her pale neck which he quickly peppered with open-mouthed kisses and nips.
“Fucking hell, I missed you, Kitten.” He growled into her ear.
“I missed you too, Daddy.”
Petyr pulled back from the wall and marched down the hall with Sansa locked in his embrace. She'd missed that word, they both had. The man with grey at his temples stormed into Sansa's bedroom and threw her down onto the mattress, he wasted no time stripping Sansa of every shred of fabric... and some seriously hideous shoes. Once she was naked before him in the dark room Petyr just looked at her, his darling girl, so beautiful, so perfect, so his. He looked like a dying man who'd just found an oasis in the desert. Sansa had missed that expression, the one that made her feel special, like she were the only person in the world. Blue eyes could see the bulge in Petyr's pants, it sparked a surge of want within her.
Suddenly Lady barked pulling their attention from the tension between them. In a flash he grabbed a tennis ball from the floor beside Lady's dog bed and chucked it out the room for her to chase after, then kicked the door shut and returned to the naked teenager lay out before him. Petyr didn't want Lady ruining his time with Sansa.
Petyr crawled up onto the bed and over his baby girl, green orbs raked over her stunning form taking in every inch of her. Her breasts had grown in the year they'd been apart and her curves where more defined than before. No longer did she have the body of a teenager but of a young woman. Gods, she was stunning. His calloused hands ran over her porcelain thighs to push them apart so as he could settle between them. He took her left nipple into his mouth to tease, couldn't resist, and Sansa gasped. This was what her body craved, what it had craved since the day she'd left him alone in that courthouse bathroom, him.
Petyr slid his hands down from Sansa’s sides to her ass and gave the plump globes a nice, firm squeeze, she moaned, the sound bounced off the turquoise walls.
The older man easily pushed the teenager's legs even further apart apart to reveal her naked sex before sliding his right hand down to tease her while the left went up to cup her breast, her head fell back against the pillows as little mews escaped her lips. Littlefinger continued his teasing putting his thumb on her labia and spreading them open, revealing Sansa’s folds and clit to his hungry eyes. Petyr surged with an animalistic pride. He pressed a small kiss to her shoulder then bit down as he plunged two digits into his naughty little girl, he delighted in the sounds the redhead beauty let out. Fingers thrust almost tormentingly until Sansa was practically dripping, body crying out for him, her chest rose and fell with needy pants.
“You like that my little girl? You need Daddy to make you cum?” His voice was practically intoxicating. “So fucking greedy aren't you?” Her eyes were closed and she could hardly hold her head up, not that she tried very hard. “I've missed how you taste!”
Petyr pulled his fingers from her warm, wet heat and a feeling of emptiness swept over the redhead, she mourned the loss of him. He examined his drenched digits for a moment as though her juices were gold then hungrily licked her from his talented fingers. Sansa mewed.
“Still so perfect.”
She was beautiful beneath him, her arms fell to grip the bed sheets, lips parted to let little groans and pants escape as his clever fingers explored her wetness. He brought her to the brink of pleasure, until she almost couldn't take it any longer, and then pulled his hand away just to see her eyes flash with need. Petyr wouldn't deprive the his Sweetling forever though, couldn't refuse her, not when Sansa let out such stunning little noises. With a grin he slid down her supple body to pepper sweet kisses to her inner thighs.
“Daddy!” She breathed, the sound of his name on her tongue spurring him on, made him want to hear her scream.
“Shush, Daddy is gonna make you feel good.” He purred.
His tongue licked at her folds hungrily tasting the sweet flavour of his darling girl. Sansa gasped out a strangled moan, she'd never felt anything like Petyr's tongue before and couldn't even put the feeling into words, she wasn’t new to this by any means but Petyr something unique. His talented tongue lapped at her folds passionately, he was amazed at how wet she was for him, her hands gave up clinging to the sheets and raked into his greying hair, gripping tightly as his tongue circled her clit. Petyr kissed that sensitive bundle of nerves over and over making her scream louder and louder for him, then he slipped a finger inside her. Her grip on his hair became vice like but it only spurred him on as she moaned and gasped. A second finger entered her wet heat and then another, he crocked them as he kissed her clit. It didn't take long for Sansa to start pushing back on his fingers, she was close and the brothel owner knew that, he'd pushed her to the brink, taken his baby girl to the edge and reduced her to a quivering mess before him. After a few moments of careful thrusting she screamed out wrapping her legs around his head. Petyr made sure to keep the thrusts going throughout her orgasm until she was left panting, her eyes fluttered closed. Sansa felt nothing but pure pleasure.
“Daddy!” She all but screamed and Gods did that feed Petyr's ego.
He smirked when his lips met hers again, knowing she could taste herself on him. Reluctantly Petyr retreated and ripped off pants as quickly as possible. Sansa seemed to delight in just watching him, almost as though he was a mystery waiting to be revealed.
Only after peeling the dark fabric from his body so slowly it bordered on torment did Petyr return to Sansa, he pressed his lips to hers and finally, finally, thrust into his little hellcat. He kept his movements slow so that she could feel every inch of his thick cock as he buried himself inside her. Sansa moaned, her back arched almost against her will and Petyr took the opportunity to grab her throat right where her neck met her clavicles, he squeezed. It wasn't like in the movies, a hard unyielding pressure, no it was just enough to hinder her breathing. Sansa needed this, to have her Daddy dominate her. Some women would think choking to be one of the worst things to happen during sex but to Sansa it was heavenly.
She knew that no other man would ever be able to satisfy her like the unyielding man on top of her could. Petyr's thrusts began slow and gentle but soon his need took over and he snapped his hips fast and sharp, he set a hard pace using Sansa's neck to keep her in place. The redhead could only moan and grip the bed sheets until her slender fingers turned white. Petyr groaned, his hips thrusting powerfully with a satisfying sound of slapping skin. Fuck, it had been so long! Her eyes fluttered shut but Littlefinger didn't allow it and gripped her neck to ease, she was close so he squeezed harder.
“You keep your eyes on me, Sweetling. Understood?” He he was breathless but still crashed their lips back together for a heated kiss.
Sansa was dangling on the very edge, looking down into the euphoric depths below with her Daddy not far behind her, she wiggled her hips in just the right way, teasing, and send him into a primal rut, thrusting like his life depended on it. It was then that the seventeen year old grew needier and Petyr flipped them so as he could watch his the naughty little girl ride him, his long and talented fingers gripped her hips leaving tiny little bruises over the porcelain skin of her hip, pulling her down onto him, impaling her. Sansa grinned down at him, she'd never seen him so desperate, with her hands firmly planted on his chest Sansa leaned down to kiss him again, gasping at the new angle and the way her kissed nipples grazed against his chest. She missed the pressure on her neck but the force he used to pull her down onto him did wonders to make her forget that.
“Cum for me, Kitten. Cum for Daddy.”
It was then that she could take it no longer and plunged into the smouldering waters of bliss and euphoria her body clamped down around the older man as she rode out her orgasm, pulling him over the edge and into climax with her. When euphoria surged through her it was like something Sasna thought she'd lost had been returned, a missing piece back where it belonged.
“Daddy! Daddy!” Sansa screamed then collapsed onto his naked chest.
“Holy fuck!” Petyr only just managed to pull out, coating Sansa's thighs with his seed.
They lay there for a time basking in the bliss of their orgasmic perfection. After a while Petyr started to draw little patterns over Sansa's shoulder, his touch gentle and loving.
“I want to mark you, bite into your flesh and make sure the world knows you're mine, Sweetling.”
Petyr knew he couldn't though, her parents, her teachers, her friends, they'd all see. “But I can't so I'll have to think of these as my mark on you.” He said as a hand slipped down her naked body to caress the fingernail bruises at her hips. “When you sit down in class and there's that little twinge of pain from them I want you to think of me. I want you to think about your Daddy's cock buried inside you.”
“Get on your hands and knees, Sansa.” He told her in a stoic tone.
“Do as Daddy says, Baby girl.” There was no question as to whether that was an order or not.
Knowing what was coming Sansa rolled off the older man and got on her hands and knees naked before him. Petyr sat back on his haunches, Gods he loved how good she was for him. He kissed down her spine, the heat of his lips radiated from his lips. Slap! Petyr's hand came down hard on Sansa's backside forcing her to squeak at the sudden sharp, pleasurable pain.
“You went out of your way to hurt me, Kitten.” Another hard slap of his hand against her ass sending the pale skin red. “And then you let that blonde cunt touch you!” Slap! “You're mine, Sansa Stark. Mine.” His hand came down harder which had Sansa crying out in pleasure. “But Daddy understands why you were angry. Believe me when I say you are my everything and I will never risk you again. I love you, Sansa. I'm sorry.”
Her heart swelled at that and he pulled her back to awkwardly sit in his lap, her backside argued but she didn't care. There was a voice in the back of her head telling her not to believe him, that he was lying again but Sansa didn't think she could be without him any longer, and the way he held her... he wasn't lying. The only reason she'd been blind for so long, Petyr Baelish was a bad man... and she was his bad girl.
It almost felt as though they'd never been apart, Petyr's arms wrapped around her tightly while Sansa rested her head on his slightly coated in sweat, felt right. She'd felt so empty for so long – physically and metaphorically – so alone, but now there was Petyr again, holding her, protecting her.
“I missed you.” He whispered into her ear as he moved them to lay flat on the bed once more, Sansa held close.
“I missed you too.” She snuggled further into his chest; this was where she belonged.
Petyr ran a hand through her long red hair slowly as though each strand was a treasure to be savoured, he leaned in and kissed Sansa's temple, his face lingered at her neck.
“Did you just smell me?”
Petyr smirked at her question.
“Hazard I'm afraid, you smell so good.”
Sansa actually smiled at that and pulled herself closer only to notice the clock on the night table. Eight-ten.
“I still have time.” She muttered more to herself than anything else.
“Until?” Her Daddy asked almost instantly, a hand still stroking through her hand.
“Until I have to go back to the house. Harry and I said we'd be at a tutoring session and then were going for something to eat afterwards. I have to be back by ten. We have about two more hours.”
Petyr actually seemed surprised. “Cat let you stay out that late? Unexpected.”
“She likes Harry, trusts him.”
“More than you by the sound of it.”
Sansa sighed. “Probably, but please can we not talk about her? I just want to be Daddy's little girl.”
Suddenly Petyr cupped Sansa's cheek and forced her to look up at him. “You always have been, Sweetling. And you always will be.” He cleared his throat and once again kissed her temple. “Now, if we have two hours we should make the most of it, what would you like to do? Anything my baby girl wants.”
Sansa thought to herself for a moment, she let out a small hum as options came to her. She didn't feel like doing much, any energy she'd had Petyr had fucked out of her. Just something simple sounded good.
“Can we watch a horror movie and eat chocolate ice cream?” She'd missed that almost as much as the sex.
“That's all you want?” The seventeen year old nodded. “Then that's what we'll do, but I want you in something sexy as hell.”
With that Petyr clambered out of bed rounded it utterly naked and uncaring to the wardrobe and pulled it open. Petyr hummed to himself as he perused the contents, a sound that made Sansa smile. The redhead didn't remember the last time she smiled like that. His dangerous green eyes raked over the mass of fabrics for a moment and then he started to pull out items and throw them over his arm. Sansa just watched with eager anticipation. Each item was set neatly on the bed and then he vanished from the room, the redhead could see Lady chewing on her tennis ball just outside the door. When Petyr came back he was dressed in a suit and looked every inch the man she'd always known, the powerful Littlefinger, her Daddy was back. He had a box in his hands and paused at her dresser long enough to grab her panties and a pair of stockings. When he crouched down by the bed Sansa knew what he wanted, he'd always loved dressing her in the delicate fabrics, draping her in beauty. She loved it, his gentle touches and devotion.
She gasped when he opened the box to reveal a stunning pair of heels. They were peeptoe heels, dark and covered in shimmering crystals. She finally spoke when he slipped the dark heels onto her stocking clad feet.
Petyr smirked. “I'm glad you like them, Kitten. They're your Christmas present. I think you can have them early though.”
Her Daddy's green orbs grew hungry at the sight of her, dressed in her little red, plaid skirt with white stockings and a tight white blouse. Sansa raised her right foot to get a better look at her early gift and gasped when she saw the red soles that clearly marked them as Louboutins.
“These are Loubouins!”
Petyr just smiled up at her, still engrossed in how beautiful and depraved she looked.
“These are expensive.” He'd spent money on her before but it had always left her shocked.
“And what makes you think my perfect baby girl isn't worth shoes encrusted with Swarofski crystals?”
Sansa's eyes widened. “Daddy how much were these?”
“You don't need to know, Angel. I decide how much gets spent on you, Kitten, not you.”
Dominance caressed his tone, the sort of voice that told her she wasn't to utter another word on the subject. Petyr lifted Sansa into his arms and started to carry her out the bedroom but Sansa stopped him.
Petyr just smiled softly and pulled the bear form the shelf above her vanity, he handed it to his baby girl and then continued down to the living room and sat her gently on the leather couch. Lady followed with her tennis ball.
“What would my baby girl like to watch?” Petyr asked as he reached for the remote. “Something scary where the stupid teenage girls all get killed?”
Sansa nodded. She'd missed this, just them. Lady hopped up onto the couch beside Sansa and Winston while Petyr flicked the TV on and started to comb through the movie options. Eventually they settled on the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and while John Larroquette started the narration Petyr got his girl her bowl of ice cream. He passed her the bowl then went vanished again only to return a moment later and set a glass of cola and a tumbler full of amber liquid down on the coffee table before joining his Sansa on the couch. The redhead would have preferred wine but she knew why he'd given her the cola instead.
It was peaceful there, just the two of them with Lady snuggled into Sansa's side. The redhead felt as though normality had resumed, all was right with the world. Throughout the whole movie Petyr touched her, patterns up her stocking clad legs and under her skirt so he could squeeze her thighs. Petyr was loving every single second of being with her. Losing his baby girl had almost killed him, she smelt of mango and her skin so soft. He didn't care one iota about the movie, he just wanted to touch her. By the time the film ended Lady was snoring and Petyr had shifted Sansa to his lap so he could kiss down her neck. It was as though she'd never been away.
“I love you, Daddy.” Sansa purred which earned an animalistic growl from deep within his throat.
“I love you too, Sweetling.” He'd intended to say more but was cut off by his phone beeping loudly, Sansa jumped.
“My alarm, baby. We need to leave now or Cat will start wondering where you are.”
Sansa's whole body tensed. “I don't want to go back.”
He smiled softly at her. “I don't want you to leave either but you have to, Sweetling.” Petyr pulled her in for a soft kiss. “Go get changed for Daddy, baby girl.”
Reluctantly Sansa nodded, it was best for everyone this way, she knew that; didn't mean she liked it though. With a sigh she went upstairs to change back into her bland dress while Petyr remained to do whatever it was Petyr did when waiting for Sansa. When she got back down stairs everything had been tidied away and the television had been shut off, Petyr stood over by his piano opposite the elevator, his keys were in one hand and his phone in the other. Lady sat at his feet her head pressed against his side.
“You've grown to love her haven't you.” It wasn't exactly a question.
He pushed his phone into his pocket. “She was all I had of you.”
That killed Sansa inside but Petyr quickly distracted her by calling the elevator. Sansa knew their 'break up' – for lack of a better term – had been his fault but the way he'd said that, she was all I had of you, made her realise she could have handled it differently, if she had maybe they'd not have spent a year apart. Or maybe she was being to hard on herself and letting Petyr off the hook again. Truth be told she'd missed Petyr, craved him, just as much as he had her.
On the way down the elevator Petyr clung to her possessively, he'd just about respected her personal space f or the year but no longer. She was his and Sa ns a was glad for it. The silver doors rolled open and Petyr guided her out with Lady bounding to the front passenger door of his beloved Aston Martin. Lady rushed past the redhead into the front seat looking all excited.
“In the back, darling.” He said to the wolfdog. Lady barked and when Petyr spoke again it was in a far more dominant tone. “In the back, darling!”
That time Lady obeyed and bounced into the back seat so as Sansa could sit down; she threw her bag down at her feet . The redhead sat down and just grinned as she watched Petyr get into the car as well.
“Did you just call Lady 'darling'?” She asked.
He started the car and backed out of the underground parking structure.
“We bonded.” He said stated. “Most days she doesn't leave me alone. It's gotten to the point where I have to take her to my office with me otherwise she scratches the fuck out of the elevator door.”
Sansa reached back to tickle Lady's ears.
The drive was nice and peaceful despite their destination, Petyr had one hand on the wheel and the other firmly planted on her thigh. Sansa hadn't been so happy and felt so safe since Joffrey's trial had started. The pair didn't talk much, just listened to the music quietly dancing out of the stereo.
Oh baby, you're my little rock'n roll
And no matter what you do, I'm gonna tattoo you
On the back of my left shoulder
Oh baby, you're my little rock'n roll
And I don't mean to brag, when you fly your flag
I salute it like I'm a soldier
The night was lit by a crescent moon that shone down almost supernaturally; stars twinkled. Peace left Sansa though when Petyr stopped the car halfway down the long driveway.
“Sorry, Sweetling, any closer and the car could be seen. We don't want your parents recognising my Aston.”
“That's okay.” She told him, Petyr's car wasn't exactly unnoticeable.
He looked down to his watch. “Back with seven minutes to spare.”
That brought a smile to Sansa's face. “Just enough time.”
Sansa leaned over to kiss him and Petyr instantly cupped her cheeks to pull her further into the kiss; he'd missed her scent, the taste of her tongue. Only when they couldn't take the lack of air anymore did Petyr pull back, green eyes fixed on her porcelain face.
“Go on, Kitten. Inside before Cat comes looking. Oh, and tell her you'll be going to the prick's tutoring thing from now on.”
Sansa's brow furrowed. “Why?”
“Because I'll take whatever time I can get with you.”
Of course he did, Petyr had always been there, every second of her he'd ever been able to get he'd taken. It would freak some people out but it just made Sansa feel safe. She nodded, it would be their time, their time where they could just be together.
Sansa tickled Lady's ears. “Bye Lady, see you soon.” She promised. “Bye, Daddy.”
“Bye, Sweetling. Daddy loves you.”
“I love you too, Daddy.” She did, always had.
Reluctantly Sansa got out of the car and grabbed her bag, she didn't want to leave him but knew she had no choice. With a wave she left him and headed up the rest of the drive towards the Stark house. When she walked through the front door her mother was on her.
“How was your evening with Harry?”
Good God woman, can't I at least get my fucking key out the door?
“Good.” She smiled. “I really enjoyed it.”
Cat folded her arms across her chest as Sansa toed off her shoes. “Oh?”
“Yeah, em, there are two boys called Olyvar and Percival. Olyvar is nice and eager to learn but Percival thinks he knows better than everyone else, he's smart though. I think he might have a knack for Shakespeare, if he'd give it a chance. I told Harry I wanted to keep helping. Can I? Please?”
Sansa picked up her shoes pleased with her lie; Petyr had taught her well.
“I don't want you being out so late of a school night, your grades-”
Sansa cut her off, she'd not let her mother ruin her time with Petyr.
“I won't let my grades slip and if they do then I'll tell Harry I can't do it anymore.”
Cat thought about it, she didn't like the late hours but it would look good on college applications along side the other extracurricular activities the older redhead had forced her daughter to attend.
“Very well, as long as you keep up your grades.”
Happier than she'd been in a very long time Sansa smiled. “Thank you, Mom.”
She left her mother after that and made her way up to her bedroom to change into her pyjamas. Her body was a little sore after her and her Daddy's escapade but a pleasurable sore. Once her dress was in the hamper Sansa went to her bedroom window that looked out towards the woods and grabbed a sharpie and sheet of paper and – just like when she'd thanked Petyr for her birthday present – wrote a message. SEE YOU NEXT WEEK, DADDY , the sign read. After a moment there was a small flare of blue-white light, it was only there for a moment off in the tree line but Sansa instantly recognised it to be a phone screen. Just a quick flash, enough to let her know he'd seen her message and understood. Sansa flipped the sheet over and wrote a new message: LOVE YOU. NIGHT. The phone light flared again.
Sansa didn't know how long he'd remain there but she felt safe knowing that her Daddy wasn't far away. She ripped the paper into tiny pieces and crammed them down to the bottom of trash can with a mental note to empty it in the morning. The redhead picked up her shoes and tossed them into the closet her mind full of thoughts of the shoes Petyr had given her, they were beautiful, that was when curiosity got the better of Sansa and she opened up her laptop and ran a quick search for the shoes, she had to cover her mouth with a hand lest she exclaim something along the lines of 'holy shit'. Three-thousand, three-fucking-thousand he'd paid for those shoes! Petyr had showered her with gifts before, one hung permanently around her neck, but this was on a whole other level. It was too late to go into thoughts about how much he'd spent on her tough, he knew he didn't have to go to such expense but at the same time it made her feel as though she were the most important woman in Westeros.
She forced herself to shut down her laptop and instead ran a comb through her long hair. After a stretch Sansa turned the lights off and clambered into bed. Where she settled into the pink pillows. Sleep took her almost instantly and it was by far the best night sleep she'd had in months.
