Getting to their packhouse, I growled when I saw Melana’s car parked in the driveway. This is exactly why I didn’t want to come here. I was not listening to the two go at it all night, the thought alone making my blood boil.
“What is she doing here?” Ace says before sighing.
“You best get rid of her Ace, I don’t want her around the packhouse '' Tyson tells him pulling in next to her car, the paint flaking off from where I squirted the brake fluid on her car. Great, now I need to listen to her bitching and moaning. Ace jumps out as soon as the car stops marching around to the front of the packhouse. I remain in the car and Tyson looks over the backseat at me.
“Come on Lucy” He says, opening his car door. I remained in my seat not wanting to go inside if Melana was staying. I much rather go to the river than listen to her all night.
Tyson opens my car doo
Walking down the hallway, I hear Tyson walk back inside but quickly rush to the bathroom. I lock the door before turning on the shower. Getting undressed, I hear Tyson knock on the bathroom door.“Lucy, are you okay?” Tyson asks.“Fine, just showering” I tell him, I was actually excited to use hot water, the river was freezing and you wanted to jump out as soon as you got in. “I will grab you some clothes” Tyson says and I hear him walk off, his feet loud on the floorboards. I stepped in enjoying the hot water as it cascaded down my back before grabbing the soap. The tension in my body is loosening. I will never take hot water for granted again I thought to myself as the room steamed up, the scent of camomile soap filling the room. I wash myself before quickly washing my hair. I really needed to trim it, it was getting ridiculously long. I was brushing my fingers through it, try
Ace’s POVMelana wasn’t having it, nothing I said to her was making her see reason. I told her plenty of times this was just fooling around yet the hurt look she continued to give me as I stood in her kitchen showed me how much I truly fucked up. She clearly didn’t see this as fooling around and thought something more than what I would ever give her, making me wish I listened to Tyson.Melana's tear stricken face made me feel like a piece of shit. “Is this because Lucy came back? I don’t get it Ace everything was fine until she returned” Melana cries. I look away from her. Her wolf was shining through and I could tell even she was hurt but Melana is not my mate, Lucy is.“Are you going to answer, if it is let me speak to her, I know we haven't always got along, but maybe if I talk to her things won’t feel awkward. I know she is meant to be staying with you for
Lucy POVWaking up the storm had cleared and the sun was beaming in through Tyson's bedroom window, lighting up the back of my eyelids making me squint as I put up my hand to shield my eyes from the blinding light.Sitting up, I found Tyson was still asleep but we had both shifted in our sleep and was laying half on him, my head on his chest and arm across his waist, my skin tingling wherever his skin was connected with mine. I pulled my leg off his waist embarrassed at the position I awoke in, only for him to grab my leg and bring it back across his waist."Stay" Tyson mumbles, pulling me back to him by my shoulders with the arm of his I was laying on. He pats his chest and I lay back down, he turns his face, his nose going into my hair as he inhales my scent."Right where you belong," Tyson says, kissing my forehead."Where I belong?" I ask at his half asleep ramblings, he chuc
Trigger warning, mentions of attempted rape, read at own risk or skip the chapter.Lucy POVWalking into the bathroom, I grab the pants I had on yesterday, pulling them on, they were slightly damp from the floor being wet, the room chilly from the tiles and the window being cracked open.I then grab my jumper tugging it over my head and pull my hair into a ponytail, with my hair tie from my wrist. That day replaying in my head on repeat. The smell of his cologne, the weird prickling sensation of my hair standing on end when I realised his intentions, the fear that paralysed, making me freeze up, while I tried to figure out what I did that would make him do this to me, that sense of dread, the coldest feeling in world before I feel my breathing become shorter. I clutch at my throat trying to catch my breath as I start to hyperventilate, fear gripping me in it confines suffocating me excruciatingly slowly.
"Lucy open the goddamn door and stop ignoring us" Ace yells, snapping me to my surroundings. My hair sticking to my face as I broke out in a cold sweat, goosebumps covering my arms.I was on the cold grey tiled floor. I shakily get to my feet before trying to compose myself, trying to convince myself they weren't my memories as I shove them away, back in my box locking it away where it can;t get me. I open the door to find Ace and Tyson in the hallway. Ace looked livid while Tyson looked concerned standing behind him. Ace towering over me as he glared down at me, taking up nearly the entire door frame."Lucy come here" Tyson says, waving his hands forward wanting me to go to him. I was tempted until Ace spoke, his arm blocking the doorway when I tried to move through it effectively blocking me. I look up at him. I only reached up to his chest as he stared down at me intimidatingly."Explain, you hate me being with Melana
Tyson POVShe rejected him, and Ace blinded by his own ego launched himself at her, knocking her down before rejecting her rejection. Tyrant pressing beneath my skin as he watches him attack her, forcing me to my feet. I try to get him off her when he sinks his teeth into her neck. I grab him, ripping him off her, her scream making me enraged and I punch him.He growls at me, but he just fucking hurt her. He hurt her. He took her choice, this was never meant to go down like this, she was never meant to find out like this and he ruined everything making me hate him for it. Ace tackles me, slamming me into the wall, I punch him in the ribs making him grunt letting Tyrant forward to help me shove him off.Tyrant wanted to kill him, we accepted the fact we had to share her, but I was not accepting of what he did, as I repeatedly rained blow after blow down on him. How could he, she is our mate, how could he hurt her like tha
Lucy POVI awoke to the sound of voices, my head was pounding and my neck stinging. Groaning, I get up rubbing my eyes as I swing my legs over the side of the bed. I find myself in Tyson’s room. The door was cracked open slightly and I could hear the murmurs of people talking somewhere in the packhouse. Getting up, I clutch my neck, the movement making my mark sting. Tears brim in my eyes that he marked me. I hated him. I hated him with everything in me. I felt betrayed by him. Now there was no escaping the bond.Walking to the door I open it, the door creaking and the house suddenly falls quiet. “Tyson?” I call out, hoping Ace isn’t the one that is home. I hear footsteps before seeing Tyson suddenly appear in the hallway and I rush to him. Throwing my arms around him, he hugs me close and I breathe in his scent, sparks rushing over my skin as he presses his lips to my head. Hearing voices again I look up at him.
Ace’s POVI felt gutted knowing everything she said was true. I don’t know why I doubted her, maybe it was my own guilt or I was just too blinded by my anger after what Melana told me, that I didn’t see sense but now I felt like a piece of shit for not believing her, when she had never given me reason to question her before. Lucy usually owned up to her wrongs and now I was going to have to do the same.Lucy stormed off to Tyson’s room and I didn’t blame her, she hated me. I hated me for what I did but I never expected her to have the bond removed and now I had to face her rejecting me all over again. Leaning on the verandah wall I toss my smoke. Ryker comes out with Reika and he opens the car door for her. A growl escapes him when he spots me leaning on the wall. I watch as he shuts her door before walking over to me. I know what is coming, could see it a mile away as he stalked up the steps toward me. I
