Candy stilled her movements as she heard the cry slip past Annie’s lips.
“Annie?” She asked, unsure of why her mate was crying.
“Y, y, yeah?”
“Did I do something wrong? I’ve never been with a woman before and if I did something wrong, please let me know.” Candy said as she sat up to look at her mate. Annie had her hands over her face as her shoulders shook.
“No, no. You were perfect.” She said with a sob.
“Then why are you crying baby?” Candy asked as she moved to lay beside Annie.
“I just, I didn’t... I’ve never, it’s never felt that amazing before.” Annie said with a hiccuping sob.
Candy gently grabbed Annie’s wr
Annie straightened the borrowed shirt that Drake had brought her as she followed Candy. Her nerves were frayed and she really didn’t want to go into the clinic.Didn’t want to face the physical proof on the screen that she was pregnant. The flutters and strange alien movements were enough for her. The ultrasound that she had done over a month ago was more than enough proof for her.Asking the pack’s doctor to keep her secret had been a gamble, it was one she was glad she had taken.Beau’s response to her pregnancy hadn’t been a joyous thing. Not that she had expected it to be. He had never raised his hand to her, but when she had told him it was the first time she had been afraid that he might strike her.Sure, he had been rough with her. At that moment though as
“Candy?” Doc said, tilting her head to the side as she looked at her daughter and the woman whose hand she was holding.“Mom, this is Annie.” Candy bit her lower lip as she looked at her mother. She wanted her mother to accept her mate, she wanted her mother to accept her.“Annie it’s nice to meet you. Why don’t you come on back?” Doc shook herself, returning to her professional bedside manner.Annie brought her hand up to her stomach. Looking from the doctor to her mate. She could feel the tension pouring from Candy. She didn’t need the bond in place to be able to see the change in the other woman.She could feel it in the way she gripped her hands, how Candy gulped, how her eyes moved from Annie to her mother.“I am,&
Stolas looked away from the game that he and Sam were playing. His friend was being quieter than normal.“What happened with the wolves and the vampire?” Stolas asked, looking back at the screen.“They wanted time with her.” Sam said with a frown as he watched the character toss a grenade with a smile. He needed this kind of destruction to pull his mind away from her face.Lilith had looked so betrayed as he had placed a hand on her shoulder and one on her chin.“So do you.”“All I’ve got is time, they don’t. Well, the half-breed does.” He said, his lip curling in disgust. “I’ll get her to myself soon enough.”“How will you manage with the others?” Stolas said, watching the screen
Candy walked behind Annie, her eyes glued to her round ass. She bit her lip. She still hadn’t talked to her mother about what might happen to Annie and the twins. Well triplets, if she claimed her mate. “You’re her mate?” Abby asked as she uncrossed her legs and stood from the couch.“I am,” Annie said, looking down away from her sister as Abby came closer to her.“I’m so glad you have someone who will love you the way that you need to be loved.” Abby said.Annie let out a breath as she looked back up at Abby.“You mean you’re not mad at me?” Annie asked as she tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. Looking over at her sister, she watched as Abby pushed her glasses up.“The past is the past Annie.” She said grabbing her twin’s hand. “Beau and I were never going to work out, what happened between you two was just the push I needed to leave.”Annie’s heart twisted at he

“You guys have a date?” Abby asked as she and Annie walked back to the practice space that the band liked to use.“Tonight?”Annie could hear the soft strain’s of the guitar and Eli’s haunting yet beautiful voice. “We do.”“Why didn’t you tell me?” Abby asked as she turned to look at her sister.“Huh?”“Let me help you get ready.” Abby said, leading her in the direction of Candy’s room.“There isn’t really anything I can do to get ready.” Annie whispered, tugging her hand away from her sisters.“Let’s go through your clothes and find something for you to wear?”“Abs, I don’t have anythin
Candy sat her drumsticks down as she tried to calm the rapid beating of her heart. Moving to stand, she rolled her shoulders, trying to shake off the pull she felt to Stolas. It was wrong, he may call to her the same way that Annie does. She knew she needed to talk with her mate.“Candy, I wanted-” Stolas said, his words trailing off as she moved to stand in front of him. She shoved her hands into her pockets to keep from reaching out to pull him closer to her. She wanted to tangle her hands in his long black hair, to force his head back as she nipped at his Adam’s apple.To drag him closer to her. She wondered if his hair would feel as soft as Annie’s? Annie, who was her mate.Candy repeated her mate’s name again. She was stronger than this.“What are you doing he
“Eli, wait.” Candy called out as she scrabbled to stand in front of Stolas. Looking at the man she had once thought herself to be in love with. The man that had been her closest friend for years now.“Candy, what about Annie?” Eli asked, his voice rumbling and inhuman as he struggled to keep his wolf in check, his movements overly graceful as he prowled forward. She couldn’t help but shiver, even though Drake was the alpha of their pack. There was no denying that Eli was an alpha in his own right. Her wolf wanted her to roll onto her back, show the soft skin of her belly to him. Candy wouldn’t do that though, even as she tilted her head to the side in a subtle gesture.“Eli-”“What about Annie, Candy?” Eli said, cutting off Stolas from saying anything else.&ldquo
