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
After we finished eating, I helped wash up the dishes as Eli took a seat and talked with Jack. It's nice knowing after all the pain my mate went through, he was able to find a kind and caring man to raise him. I hate to admit but I feel some what jealous that I grew up alone. If my family chose to trust Eli, I wonder how different things could have been."Nix, you alright?" Breaking from my daze, I dry my hands and walk back over to my seat. "Yeah, I was just thinking. Eli, do you know how the attacked on your town happened?" Placing his hands together, his head shook before he looked back up to me. "I'm unsure. The guards saw nothing which means it could have been an inside job but the fence was broken on the north end. Who ever did it had hopes to wound the wolves first but thankfully, we always have a backup plan."Lookin
As I continue hanging on Jack, we come to a stop. Looking around behind him, all I see are trees. Slowly, I feel him place his hand on my ass and start lowering me to the ground. Once I'm planted safely on my feet, I gaze up to his eyes and I hear nothing but our beating hearts. Watching him walk towards me and I take a step back.He may think it will be easy to mate with me but I will make it a challenge. Nothing I want more than to have a good hunt. Back when the packs were large and striving, for the male to mark and mate with their wolf, they had to hunt for them in the woods. He may be more domesticated, but he should feel the need and want in his veins."Where do you think your going?" His low growl rolled from his lips as he continued to stalk towards me. A grin left my lips before I licked them, focusing on his gaze.
"Nix dear, you need to wake up." The words seem so clear and her voice sounds like a melody inside my mind. I have never wanted to welcome a dream until this moment. Trying to open my eyes, I glance around and I am surrounded by fog. Trailing my hands along the damp grass, my vision clears and there is no one around."Jack..." I whisper as I slowly sit up searching for my mate. "Nix, you need to leave. They are coming." Jumping off the ground, I turn and only see a bright light in the distance. As I walk towards it, it becomes brighter and a form stands before me. "Who are you?""I think you know who I am love. I need you to stop welcoming the dream and wake up. You are in grave danger along with your mate. Please dear, wake up." Tears well in my eyes as I continue my stride. I know in fact who this is and I can't
The room was dark with nothing in sight. As I tried to move, all I felt was pain and cold. The pain radiated throughout my whole body followed by the cold filling my insides. As I laid back, darkness surrounded me and I started to feel at ease. This might not have been the way I wanted to die but it was worth it.Saving my mate was worth it and I would do it again in a heart beat. Tiny pricks of sparks jump along my arms as I laid motionless. It is my time. As I continue to look up, my eyes start seeing the starts of the night. The most amazing sight and my favorite thing to do in the warmer time of each year.I watch as some stars stay still but other are jumping around and start to explode like fireworks. A smile is brought to my face as I watch the amazing sight before me. Feeling a hand being place inside mine, I slowly turn and see
Seeing my house in the distance, I finally start thinking about everything that has happened. I should have died. I should be with my family but instead, I was given this curse to help other wolves. I know the rumors about packs being killed spread throughout the world but who came for me? Who came to take me from this hell I lived most of my life and gave me a better one?No one. No one thought about saving those that survived. Jack is lucky because he has his father that saved him in time but that didn't happen to me. I have known nothing but survival and death; that will forever be my curse.Walking up to the door, my home looks untouched. A smile made its way to my face as I feel thankful the construction has stopped in my forest thanks to Jack. Now, I have no need to worry about my home being destroyed and I can live in peace.
"Alright Nix, the most important thing is to stay quiet and patient." Looking up to my dad, I jump with joy as he hands me my fishing pole. "So here, you need to take the hook and wrap the worm around it." Shaking my head, I started to pout as I watch my father take a worm out of a small white container."I don't want to hurt it daddy." A laugh erupted from his lips as he placed his hand on my shoulder. "It doesn't hurt the worm hunny but we need to do this so we can catch fish for supper. Everything has a purpose in life and some cruel things need to be done so we can survive." Still feeling sad, I grab the worm and start threading it on the hook. Watching it wiggle, I scrunch my nose."Very good Nix. Now, you need to place your finger on the line before releasing the clip." Doing as my dad says, I hold my finger
"How long was I missing? Time kind of gotten away from me down there." Looking over, the worry spread across Jacks face as he continued to head out of the forest. "You have been missing for a few days. I thought... I thought you were dead when you didn't come back to me. Why did you leave? I know this whole thing is overwhelming but we need to stay together."Looking into his eyes, I can tell how worried he was about me but I just wanted to go home for a little. I was not planning on staying away from him, just getting some air and try to think about the events that have happened. "Once you feel better, we need to get the leaders together for a meeting and come up with a game plan." Jen spoke as she walked next to us.Making it to the road, Jack placed me in the passenger side of his truck. Jen went to grab the back door when he s
