Unicorn Truths - a story of Unicorn/Factory for Finish It! Bingo



After Stroke the Unicorn and Unicorn Strokes, for the Finish It! Bingo


Blanket content warning for Unicorn/Factory: This setting involves unicorns using their horns for both violence and sexual violence, although none of that is directly described in this story.



Jakob took the woman to his home for the night. She deserved better than an anonymous inn bed, after the story she had given them, and, what was more, Jakob found he wanted the rest of the story.
