I had it up to my chin with this pintsized alpha. I am in no mood for anyone’s bullshit, least of all his. Maybe if he wasn’t John’s brother, maybe if he wasn’t a shorter mountain man version of him, and maybe if he weren’t an alpha, who are notorious for getting their way, I’d feel differently. But he is an alpha, he does look like John, and he is John’s brother.
For all these reasons, I wish I kept some weapons on hand here at the store. I get that he’s upset. As a younger sibling myself, I understand being protective. But it’s not his business. It’s between John and me. I didn’t get involved in my sister’s relationship troubles. Well, not to this degree. And for what meddling I did, I regret to this day.
As our argument was starting to get heated and I worried Becky would hear us, the door burst open. I was ready to reprimand Becky only to see John’s
I’ve done it again. I’ve lost all my sense of reason to the pull of the mate bond. Not only did I technically assault my Alpha, but I also kissed her again. Her scent seemed to be even stronger, or maybe it’s just because I have gone a week without smelling it that it feels stronger. Fuck I was seconds away from sinking my teeth into her neck and marking her. If I weren’t so damn embarrassed to be caught in her office, her legs around me and my shirt half-open, I’d probably be feeling more grateful for Becky's interruption. ‘Like hell we’re grateful. We were going to mark our mate. We shouldn’t be grateful that the stupid girl interrupted that.’ Irving grumbled. ‘And what happens if Sarael hadn’t wanted to be marked? If we marked her and then she freaked out? If she sent us away again. We’d have forcefully marked her, which is a horrid thing to do
He’s a VIRGIN! Seriously what the hell! How is that possible? I know he says he has great self-control and has been waiting for his mate but wow. I don’t think any man would wait this long, let alone when there are plenty of women more than willing to get in his bed. What would have happened if he never crossed paths with me? Would he have remained celibate his whole life?I can’t even fathom that. I mean, I should be flattered, right. He’s waited and saved himself for… well, for me. And I am. I’m also not sure about this because I was only one other guy’s first time, and he was mine. It was hands down the worst sexual experience of my life. The guy had no clue what he was doing and tried to go in the wrong hole more than once.I shuddered at the memory. I really hope that while he’s inexperienced, John has
I rolled my eyes when he darted into her bedroom. “Stupid cat.” I muttered and started looking around. I didn’t see anything personal on display. There are no family photos or photos in general. She had some lovely paintings on the walls. Sarael displayed a few knick-knacks on a shelf with her book collection.Her books were the most interesting thing she had. She had a large assortment. I can tell she’s read a few romance novels plenty of times, given the wear on their binding. Then she had some classics, horror, mystery, and thriller novels. But most of her collection was on the supernatural and history. It seems you can take the woman out of the hunter guild, but you can’t take the hunter out of the woman.When she exited her room, I smelled her before she called out to me. I’d been trying to keep Irving in check bef
Learning the history of his pack was eye-opening, to say the least. I don’t think I’ve heard of a pack whose alpha is selected by their wolf’s gift rather than birth order. It was truly remarkable to hear how the Bloodmoon Pack formed, and their goddess herself chose its Alpha. I’m sure my family’s guild would love to hear about that.They’d want to find a way to end the alpha line, which would mean killing Logan and his mate since she’s expecting. I managed to internalize my shutter. The very idea of killing a pregnant woman or a baby I couldn’t. It’s what made me the weaker sister. I felt bad enough for what I did in the name of our family.I don’t know what was more surprising. How Bloodmoon's alpha is selected or that becoming alpha wasn’t John’s dream. I suppose I can under
I enjoyed myself, getting to talk to her like this, and having this chance to get to know each other. I was more interested in getting to know her. She was the bigger mystery here. I’m a werewolf, the Beta of my pack, and I run my family’s company. Not a lot to unpack there. But her… there’s a story here, and I want to know it.Spells? Well, that was interesting. The use of magic isn’t something everyone can manage, least of all humans. But I suppose if one has an inclination to it, your race doesn’t matter. “Mhm. I’m guessing there is plenty to tell. Just maybe not much you want to tell.” I commented before our conversation paused.We waited till the waiter had taken our empty appetizer plates away, leaving us with our entrees. I refilled her wine since apparently, my mate enjoys wine. That or this is a su
I shouldn’t have shut down like that. It's not his fault. I don’t want him to think he did something wrong. My family, my past, the reason I left home is these are things I don’t speak of. I have told John more in one date than I did any of my exes combined. And that scares me. Why have I told him as much as I have? Is it because of the mate bond? Is it because he’s supernatural, so he knows the world I was raised in? I couldn’t tell someone like Drew about what my family really did. He would never understand. As far as he knew, supernatural creatures were make-believe. I’m going to blame it on the mate bond. I wouldn’t otherwise so easily tell him about my past. Even if I’m withholding some important details. But I can’t tell him those things. As much as my family and hunters around the world see werewolves as monsters, I know they aren’t all monsters.
I wish I knew what I said or did to make her shut down like that. I know she said it wasn’t anything I had done, but it still feels like it. ‘She only shut down when the subject of mates mistreating mates was brought up.’ Irving commented as he peered at her through my eyes during the drive to her house.We both had a lot of questions. But most were wondering what she’s witnessed regarding mates. Though I would guess coming from a hunter family, maybe she’s seen mates throw each other under the bus, so to speak, to save themselves. Which is just terrible to consider.I don’t know how anyone could do something to harm their mate. Even knowing she’s from a hunter family. I understand that some of my pack won’t accept her as their Beta Female due to her being a human and former hunter. I don’t care. I wou
Damn it. Damn it all to hell. Why did my sister have to find me? Better question: how long has my family known where I am? Have they known all along and just left me be? It’s possible. But Isis running away has brought Sakina to my door. And worse yet, she saw John. He’s not safe. His pack isn’t safe either.I groaned as I grabbed my phone and realized I didn’t have his contact info. I smacked my hand to my forehead. “I really should get his number. I need to tell him. I do have Aurelia and Logan’s numbers. But I’m not sure I want to call one of them to ask to talk to John. I don’t know if Aurelia knows about what’s going on between John and me.Logan does, but he seems a tad on the aggressive side. And I don’t think I’m his favorite person, so to hear that his pack may be in danger because
