Waking up with Brook sprawled out over me had caught me off guard. In all these years since Leslie, sleeping in the same bed with someone had been completely forbidden. It had been my one unbreakable rule.
Yet here I was, in Brook’s bed while she slept. I had stayed up long past her falling asleep and I had every intention of getting out of bed. I had never planned to sleepover. Even if I now knew she was my second chance mate, it changed nothing. I still couldn’t let her get too close to me.
I realized last night when she asked to help me avenge Leslie, that I couldn’t risk losing her like I did Leslie. I was still feeling like my best option was to reject her and save her from me. Lying here though, there was nowhere else I would rather be. How was it that just in four short months, she has managed to warm herself into my heart?
What I needed to do was get as far away from her as possible. I didn’t want to reject her, but
Brooklyn- It has been a week since my heat finished. Every time I had another episode, Tate had been there and given me immense pleasure. I kept wanting more, but he kept arguing that it was just the heat talking. I knew he wanted me. I could see it by the bulge in his pants every time he was near me. I haven’t had a chance to see him since my heat ended. I guess there was some other business he had to attend to. He was due back today and I was getting anxious. During the duration of my heat, he showed me a side of him that I didn’t think he ever had. He was tender and gentle. I kept waking up alone though. Maybe that was normal for him, I don’t know, but it was annoying the hell out of me. His moods were up and down and I was beginning to think maybe I needed to end the contract now before things got out of hand. I had brought the idea up to Eric last night and he seemed to have been in agreement with me. If I just broke the contract now, I could sav
Tatum- I wasn’t sure what to expect when Chasity issued her challenge. Brook accepting it, hadn’t been it though. On one hand, I had been looking forward to meeting her wolf, but I knew she had her reasons for keeping her wolf hidden. What was so special about her wolf, that she had to keep hidden though? It had been weird when she told me she shifted at ten years old, which was far too young for anyone to shift into their wolf. Would her wolf really come out though? I wasn’t so sure, considering she has been hiding for so long. “All challenges are to take place at the battle arena.” I said when Eric released Chasity. Looking at Chasity now, she looked like perhaps she bit off more than she could chew. That tough girl bravado was long gone. She actually looked scared right now. I don’t know why she thought it was a good idea to issue a challenge in the first place. Since the last time, she had her ass handed to her by Brook. Brook was the firs
Brooklyn-Now that Skye was out, I was thinking maybe it hadn’t been such a great idea. Everyone was staring at me like I was a freak or something. Whispers fell over everyone, all jumbled together so I couldn’t understand what anyone is saying. I heard Eric and Tate’s voices in the mix, but couldn’t understand what they said over the many other voices around the arena.Chasity hasn’t made an attempt to attack me since I shifted and I was thinking maybe it was a good thing. Skye and I were both nervous about the attention we were receiving. What was it that was so different about my wolf that everyone was acting this way? Had I been wrong to show Skye?I looked over at Chasity, who had her tail between her legs and was visibly shaking. Taking a step towards her, I froze in place when she took off in a dead run from the arena. She had been afraid of me. Not a basic fear that is normal for others, it was the kind of fear that ran deep
Tatum-The moment she crossed the border, I felt it. It was like a shock rushed through me. I wanted to go after her, to bring her back. Yet my feet wouldn’t move. I was planted firmly in place still stunned. Now I knew why it was such a big deal to hide her wolf.The Legendary Crescent Wolf had a lot of enemies and if word got out he had a daughter, she could be in a lot of danger. The biggest question was still going through my mind, was her father actually dead?It has been years since word of him has surfaced, but I could have sworn I heard something a few years after her father presumably died. I guess it could be possible she wasn’t his daughter, but it was also very hard to deny it.If I let her go, would she be safer if she stayed on the run? As Luna, she would have a large spotlight on her. If she ran, she could stay hidden and blend in. Rumors will spread if she stays here. It will bring a lot of heat to not only her but the pack as
Brooklyn-A twig behind me snapped, alerting me that one of the wolves was approaching me. Focusing my attention on the sounds coming from behind me, I tuned out the voices of Chad and his father talking. Whatever they were saying wasn’t that important, at least not to me.I heard the sound of a dried leaf being crushed, this time a little closer. Not bothering to turn around, I allowed my senses to concentrate on everything around me. I felt the wind gentle, yet just a bit chilly, whip around me like a soothing caress.There was a change in the atmosphere, I couldn’t exactly explain it, but it felt like it was about to snow. I know it is impossible to legitly smell snow, but I was sure I was smelling it. More or less it was the change in the humidity It was still early for winter, nevertheless in the Colorado mountains, it wasn’t unheard of to snow during every season. It sounded like a few other wolves that were surroundin
Tatum-The sight before me when I arrived was nothing short of extraordinary. I don’t think it was a matter of me arriving too late, from the looks of it. Standing in the middle of a large clearing, in the exact same place I found Brook, bloodied and broken, was Skye.It looked as if I just missed a massacre. There had to be at least twelve wolves sprawled out around her. I didn’t have to check for signs of life to know they were all dead. Every single one of them had their throats ripped out or some other vital organ.I couldn’t see any visible injuries on Skye, which made me remember the one time I have witnessed the destruction the Legendary Cresent Wolf was capable of. At this moment, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that she was his daughter. The way she stood her ground against the wolf she was facing, was the exact same he had stood when I met him when I was about four or five.She was so calm and regal as if nothing in
Brooklyn-As much as I tried, I couldn’t wrap my head around Tate being my mate. Nor about how different he was being towards me. He admitted to wanting me, but now all I could think was why. Was it because he saw my wolf? All of a sudden things changed and I didn’t know what to believe.My main concern right now was making sure nothing happened to him. I was sure he could take care of himself, but just the thought of him getting hurt had Skye and me on edge. Skye was practically screaming that she has a mate. Her excitement was driving me insane. How could I focus, with her being so excited about Tate being our mate?I didn’t understand her. She had been mad I even let him mark me, but now she was practically rejoicing he was our mate. I am beginning to think she didn’t even know what he has put us through the past few months. Albeit, not all of it was bad, but it wasn’t good either.Nothing like how anyone at Lunar Eclipse
Brooklyn-It was Tate’s voice that snapped me back to reality. What was I doing? This wasn’t me. Even after everything Chad has done to me, I have never wished him harm. It was one thing to defend myself, but this was something different entirely. Taking a step back, I watched as Chad struggled to get up.“Brook?” Tate spoke again, this time sounding closer.I looked over at him to find he was in human form. The fact he was naked didn’t faze me at all at this moment. It wasn’t like this was the first time seeing a man naked, especially after a shift. It was natural for our kind. What caught my attention though, was the look in his eyes.Concern was etched across his features. I didn’t have to ask to know it was I, he was concerned for. I had lost myself for a moment and was willing to let my anger and frustration take over my own morals. I had only ever wanted to make sure what happened to me before didn’t h
