"You going to kill me?" His low husky voice rumbled through me and as I stood above him holding my grip, he was able hold back my strength. Watching him closely, I watch before my eyes as his gash slowly heals before my eyes. Releasing the stick, I jump off the bed and back away from this man before me.
"What are you." I whisper as my back is met with the wall. The man slowly rose from the bed and gathered on his feet. As he walked towards me, there was no gimp or flaw in his stride. "The real question is, what are you?" Slowing, he continued to walk towards me and just before I was able to feel his breath on my skin, he broke my stick with one hand. "It can't be..." Looking him over, I was unable to sense it in him.
"Why not, you don't believe you are the last of our kind do you?" Taking one last step towards me as he rose his hand and placed it along my face bushing the hair behind my ear. The contact causing me to close my eyes as a weight felt like it was lifted off of me. If I was not the last one on this earth, where have they been hiding all this time.
Opening my eyes, I watch him lean in and bring my hair to his face, inhaling my sent deep within him. "How did you survive?" A chuckle erupted from his chest as he backed away and started looking me over. "We live in hiding still but with the humans. They know nothing about who we are still and living this way..." Waving his arm around my home as he shook his head. Waiting for his next words, he placed one hand against the wall beside my head while leaning into me. Feeling his hot breath along my lips made my heart race. I don't like things I am unsure of and this feeling brewing inside has me terrified.
"Living this way is how you get yourself killed." Not leaving his eyes, I place my arms on his chest and the moment sparks flew through my fingers, I grabbed hold of his shirt and threw him across the room. "Tell me your name." I demanded panting as I paced the room waiting for him to rise. Watching him closely, a grin grew on his face as lifted himself off the floor and charged after me.
"You are quite strong for a she wolf." Being throw off by his words, he grabbed me by the throat and slammed me against the wall. Clawing at his hands, I try to break free from his tight grip but there was no use. "Stop fighting me. We need to save our kind, not be against each other. I know this will be a process to get you grounded but you need to try." Staying calm, I take small breaths and once he released my throat, I grasp it trying to rub away the feeling of defeat.
"Did you know about me?" Slowly he backed away and sat on the bed with his hand running through his hair. With no response, I take a step closer and just as his head rose, hope filled inside of me. "I will ask you one last time. Are you Tyler and how did you know about me?" Watching his head shake, sadness washed over me realizing I will never see him again. "I am not Tyler. I was honest when I first met you, my name is Jack and I have been having dreams about you. I never knew when I would meet you so I kept traveling in hopes you would find me. Never did I think you would have been here."
"I want you to leave." I demand as I walked out of the room and headed for the kitchen. This has been a long day and due to him scaring my deer, I need spend the remaining part of the day hunting.
Grabbing another stick, I take a seat at the table and start sharpening it while I wait for him to leave. With my back facing his direction, I hear him walking out and standing behind me. "I need you to come with me." Ignoring him, I continue making my new weapon hoping Jack can take a hint. "Nix, You can't stay here. A man paid for this land and is tearing it all to the ground. I know nothing about him and if his goal is to find you, goddess only knows what he will do."
"Goddess! Goddess! Don't fucking mention her name here because the only thing she gave me was heartbreak. Why would someone be so cruel and give you the most perfect family just to have them be torn away? After the killings, I had to bury each one days after they died. Did you know that?" Rushing to stand, I push him back till he hit the wall and I continued to hit him and he let me. "The good memories you should have of the loved ones and mine are filled with blood, maggots and the smell of rot!" Feeling my hands being grabbed, I look up and see eyes of sympathy.
Releasing my hands, I flinch as his thumb ran under my eyes. Not realizing tears were flowing, I swiftly turn around wiping my face not wanting someone to see my weakness. "Better reason for you to come with me. We can't risk loosing any more wolves and if you want, I can try to figure out a way for them to preserve the graveyard but only if your safe." Turning around, anger flowed through me as I looked up to him.
"And why do you care about me? For all I know, you could be a brain washed wolf working for the sick fucker killing us off. I trust no one so don't think I will just do as you say because we are the same kind. I need you to leave now." Walking past him, I head for the front door and take off into the forest. I can't let myself trust anyone. Now that I know there are more wolves in this world is nice but who can I trust? It can't be that easy to find your kind and start a completely new life while being safe.
"Nix!" He called from behind me but I know these woods better than anyone. If he tries to follow, I will just run. Stripping my clothes off, I shift while leaping into the air and when I turn around, his face is in complete shock. Good, maybe seeing my wolf will keep him at bay.
Jack's POV-I have never seen a wolf so beautiful. Her coat is this light caramel color with white tips for toes. Her eyes stay the same and each time I look at them, my soul is pulled closer to hers. I wish there was a way I could bring her family back and help her heal but if anyone knows loss, its me.My father hid away what he truly does. The families that live around his house are all wolves in hiding and I only know that by their smell. After hitting my head, my memories came flooding back and my father rescued me. Our town was attacked by the same hunters and as a kid, I was able to hid. The moment I saw him, I knew he was my only chance at survival since my parents told me about a man that helped our kind. A man that was caring and could provide safety.That day, I watche
Silence filled him as I sat in bliss enjoying the first hearty meal I have had in weeks. Hunting is easy but having distractions or your occasional unknown noise scaring the wildlife away is what makes it hard."Then how do you explain the feeling that runs through my fingers as I touch your skin?" Shrugging my shoulders, I grab another piece of meat and shove it in my mouth. I know I wont be able to avoid his questions forever but the longer I eat, the more I am able to stall."Or what about the dreams I've had about you. They must mean something." As he leaned back in the chair, his thoughts were somewhere unknown. I need to admit, the curiosity about his life and what happened to his pack grows the more time I spend with him. I wish there was the perfect man for me and he will take me away from this hell I have been living but I live
As my heart was beating out of my chest, I looked over the figure standing before me looking for one flaw but there was none. This is not possible. He can't be standing here before me. "You died..." I whisper as a small smile made its was to his face. Lowering the hood on his head, I get better view of his face and it feels like I'm seeing a ghost."I thought you died." A chuckle left his lips as he placed his hands inside his dark blue jeans. "Can we go somewhere to talk Nix?" I have never been more confused in my life. I would have expected Jack to have found me since I was his mate but no, the one who found me was in fact Tyler."Um, sure." I turn and watch Tyler catch up to me as we strolled down the sidewalk in town. Silence filled the air as this awkward situation continued. Making it to my apartment, I unlock the door and walk in
After my long walk around town, I stopped to grab some dinner and headed back to my apartment. Working all day and then having to deal with the blast from my past has wore me out. Walking up to the door, things seem quite which I was relieved about.Opening the door, I walk in closing it behind me and the place seemed empty. Making that mistake before, I searched the whole place top to bottom. Finally being able to relax, I lock the door and decided a movie before bed would be perfect. My movie of choice tonight will be Blood and Chocolate. Even though the wolves are completely inaccurate, I admire the love story. A wolf falling for a human but her whole family is against it along with being destined to be with the leader. I would never be with him especially since he was with her aunt and is her cousins dad.Laughing at the thoug
Running in a field of flowers with the wind blowing in my hair. A smile stretches across my face as I spread my arms out and turn in circles while the hot sun brushes along my skin. Closing my eyes, I take in this freshness of air and feeling of relief that the world is right again. I have no worry in the world, just a heart full of happiness.An arm glides along my waist making me stop my stride and as I continue to turn, I see Jack with the most perfect smile along his face. Grabbing my hand as he left one on my waist, we start dancing in this stunning field.The love growing in my heart grows with each move we make and I am completely his. Looking up to him, Jacks smile grows and while he leans down for a kiss, the sky darkens. Worry becomes written on his face as he backs away to look around holding
The longer our lips touch, the more I crave him. We deepen the kiss with each moment that passed and I can't get enough. Feeling him walk, I just hold on for dear life. Even though this man has driven me crazy in the small time we have spent together, I trust all he wants is the best for me.Slowly, I feel him climb onto the bed and when we make it to the middle, I'm gently lowered with him on top. Releasing our touch, Jack rises on his knees and removes his shirt. Giving me the most amazing view of his bare chest. Lifting my hand, I run it along his chest feeling his hard abs and feeling the scars that follow. Raising my brow, I smile as I watch his chest rise and fall as he watched me observe."What happened here?" Lightly trailing a scar that ran along his ribcage, I watch his eyes close as he took a deep breath. "When my pack was at
Feeling his body start to relax on mine, I slowly guide him to lay on my lap. His arms wrap around my torso as he pulled himself tightly against me. Feeling his breathing calm, I start to run my fingers through his hair as a small smile appeared against his lip.Leaning down, I start licking the dried blood off of the side of his face. We may be in human form but my wolf instincts are strong and the need to care for my mate come above all. As I continue, his grip on me loosens letting me know he is asleep.The rest will be good and hopefully help heal his ears but if they don't, I will care and protect him. I will take care of my mate no matter what comes our way. Leaning my head down, I place it on top of his and close my eyes. Breathing in his sent comforts me and lets me know there is more to me. For many years, I thought the l
More wolves? Fear spread across my face and I watched his nostrils flare. This man before me has killed his own kind because he was unable to have his way? What type of monster is he? How could someone kill their own in such a selfish act?Jacks arms started to shake and just as I looked down, his eyes met mine and they were as dark as night. Instantly, his hand released from my body and grasped Tyler around his neck in one swift motion. Watching him rise, he lifted him in the air and I watched as Tyler's feet dangled off the ground."What were you saying about my mate? About me being defective?" Tyler's frightened eyes glared towards Jack and back to me. As I rose to my feet, I watched Jacks hands tightened around his neck, causing him to start clawing to break free. "I... I... Please..." He begged but begging only made him tighten his
