The triplets and Thea went to their rooms to shower and change.
As soon as she was alone, Thea freaked out. She wasn’t sure what had just happened. Maybe she dreamed it. It wouldn’t be the first time.
The triplets were waiting for her when she left her room. They were all showered and in fresh clothes. Thea admired the view for a moment. The way their jeans hung from their hips. The way their T-shirts stretched across their broad, muscular chests. The way their identical faces lit up when they saw her. She could always tell who was who, but their hair was the only thing most people could use to tell them apart.
With his long crew cut freshly styled, Alaric leaned in for a quick kiss. She blushed, and he took her hand. It wasn’t a dream.
Conri ran his hand through his long, bro flow hair and kissed her too. “You’re never getting rid of us now,” he said. He splayed his hand around her hip, hooking a finger into one of the belt loops on her jeans.
Kai, with his messy pompadour, leaned in for his kiss. He took her hand and brought it up to his chest, holding it against his heart. They walked down the hallway—Alaric a little ahead, Conri a little behind, and Kai right at her other side.
They passed by the Alpha’s office on the fifth floor, and Thea stopped when she heard her mother’s voice full of shock and fear.
“What could have done this?” Thea’s mother, Naomi, said behind the closed door.
“Vampires? Witches? Rogues?” Luna Ada said. Her voice also held concern.
Thea motioned for the triplets to be silent and listen with her by the door.
“Rogues couldn’t do that,” Alpha Ulric said. “I’ve never heard of witches or vampires organizing a force powerful enough to massacre an entire werewolf pack overnight.”
“Then there’s the question of why,” Naomi said. “What could that pack have done to warrant such an extreme reaction?”
“They may not have done anything,” Thea’s father, Beta Walter, said. “It’s not the first pack they’ve found desolated back east. There have been several others. They find out the pack is gone when someone goes to visit a ghost town.”
“Something is taking out werewolf packs?” Luna Ada said.
“What do we know about the packs that were targeted?” Alpha Ulric said. “Any clues left behind as to who did it or why?”
“These are the questions we need to find answers to,” Beta Walter said.
“This feels like the beginning of something big. Something that’s only going to get worse,” Naomi said.
“Let’s keep this between us for now,” Alpha Ulric said. “The boys and Thea have a few months left before they shift and graduate and then take over the pack. They’re the ones who will have to deal with this. Let’s let them enjoy these last weeks of being carefree before they have to carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.”
“Agreed,” the other parents said.
They heard shuffling inside the office. Thea motioned for the triplets to go, and they quietly ran down and out of the pack house.
“I’m happy to ignore what we just heard until we’re the ones in charge,” Conri said as they walked to school. He took his place next to Thea, hand on her hip.
“We will have to deal with it,” Alaric said, slipping his hand into Thea’s. “It sounds like this thing is going to affect all werewolves everywhere.”
“Our parents will get the ball rolling,” Thea said.
“And they’ll help us even after they pass the Alpha title to us,” Kai said. He took Thea’s other hand. “We don’t have to stress about this yet.”
Everyone at school stared at them as they walked down the hallways. It wasn’t unusual to see the four of them together, but they had never held hands and kissed.
No one living had seen a polyamorous relationship. It was the stuff of myth in the werewolf community. Some people slept around, but they weren’t in committed relationships with all their conquests. Wolves eventually mated with one person. They were known for it. Wolves were notoriously possessive, jealous beasts, unable to share.
The triplets didn’t break contact with Thea the whole day except for the one class they didn’t have together. Third hour, right before lunch. The triplets walked her to her room, each kissed her, then said their goodbyes.
It was a class about omegas, the lowest-ranked pack members, what their uses could be, and their role in a pack. New Dawn didn’t designate any members as omegas, but other packs did. Some had slaves. Thea wanted to change that. She wanted to learn all she could to know what needed to change.
“That’s new,” Lizzy, her blonde-haired best friend, said when Thea sat next to her. “Since when are you kissing our future Alphas?” She had one eyebrow raised.
“Since this morning?” Thea said.
“It’s about time.”
“I guess you didn’t need the Talent Show to get their attention after all.”
“That’s why you wanted me to wear the slutty outfit for the Talent Show tomorrow?”
“Duh. Someone needed to give you all a little push. I wonder who won the betting pool.”
“That thing went dry months ago,” Tessa, another girl in their pack, said. “No one thought it’d take this long.”
“What are you talking about?” Thea said.
“The whole school has been betting on when you all would get together,” Lizzy said. “Which of you would get together, if it’d be all three sharing you, or just one or two. If there’d be fights. If you got together with one and then mated another. All the possibilities. Everything.”
“I’m so confused,” Thea said.
“About what, girl? Those boys have been in love with you forever.”
Thea stared blankly at her best friend.
“Did you seriously not know?” Lizzy said. “They’ve never shown interest in any other girl. Never asked anyone out. Never hooked up with anyone even though plenty of girls have tried.”
Jealousy surged inside Thea, but she pushed it down. The triplets turned down the advances.
“I always looked at them as brothers,” Thea said. “I thought they saw me as a sister.”
“When did it shift?”
“I don’t know. It came on gradually.”
The bell rang, signaling the start of class. “I want to hear all about this,” Lizzy said.
“We all do,” Tessa said.
“At dress rehearsal for the Talent Show?” Lizzy said.
“Maybe,” Thea said.
After class, Thea walked to the cafeteria and found the triplets at their usual table. Conri pulled her onto his lap and rested his chin on her shoulder, breathing in her scent. Alaric pulled one of her legs over his and rubbed it up and down with his hands. Kai held her hand on the other side of Conri.
People whispered around the cafeteria.
“Did you guys know there’s a betting pool about us getting together?” Thea said quietly.
“I’ve heard rumors,” Kai said.
“No,” Conri said.
“I’ll get to the bottom of it,” Alaric said. Thea turned to him and leaned in for a quick kiss. Kai tugged on her hand until she kissed him too. Conri trailed kisses up and down her neck.
“You guys have to stop, or I’m going to be wet all day,” Thea whispered. She had to prepare those herbs to mask her scent when she got home today.
“Then let us suck you dry,” Conri whispered into her ear.
“Move slower, Con,” Alaric said.
The triplets took turns having Thea sit on their laps in each class, the other two holding her hands on either side. Teachers gave them looks but didn’t bother to say anything since they were future Alphas. Not even when they kissed the back of her neck or caressed any part of her they could reach.
Thea kept smiling. She would enjoy these last months before shifting and becoming Beta if this was how it would go.
After school, the triplets and Thea went out to the field to lead pack training. They split into four different groups and ran drills. When they came back together for conditioning, the triplets hugged and kissed Thea, ignoring everyone else on the field.“Woah,” one of the junior boys said. “Is this a new part of training?” He pulled his girlfriend to him and kissed her. Other people started making comments and asking questions. “Are they finally together?” “What does this mean?”Kai reluctantly let her go but grabbed her hand. Conri had his hand around her waist, and Alaric held her other hand.“Thea’s ours,” the triplets said in unison. She blushed. “And we’re hers. Anything you want to add?” They looked at her. She shook her head
Morning training turned into a makeout session. They made it out to the field, but Kai took her to the ground, and they didn’t do any training after that. “We may as well have just stayed in bed,” Thea said. Another day at school, people still whispered. Thea loved the feeling of the triplets holding and kissing her, but she was terrified it wouldn’t last. She didn’t want to let herself fall in love with them just to have them ripped away. After the final bell, the triplets surrounded her at her locker and tried to make out with her. “I have to go to dress rehearsal for the Talent Show,” she said, pushing them away. They pouted. “I’ll see you later.” She ran off before they could stop her. Thea met up with all the senior girls from her pack. They were doing a number together. Thea always went out of her way to befriend and include everyone in her pack. She made sure no one felt left out. She always said, “these are the people who will stand next to you in war. Make sure you tr
Kai slid Thea off his shoulder, caught her legs, and wrapped them around his waist. Conri tossed the red jumpsuit into Thea’s closet, then lifted her T-shirt off her. The triplets breathed in her growing arousal. Kai’s hands dug into her waist. Her fingers slid into his hair and pulled him closer. She pressed her lips against his, directing his movements with her hands in his hair, tongues battling for dominance. Impatient, Alaric wrapped his hands around Thea’s waist and pulled her off Kai. He gently tossed her on her bed, climbed over her, kissed her, then hooked his fingers inside the top of her track pants. He pulled them off, along with her shoes, leaving her in her nude-colored rhinestone-covered pants. “Let us look at you without other prying eyes,” he said. She leaned up on her elbows and crossed her legs at her ankles. That earned three growls. She smiled. “What?” “Uncross,” Kai said. His usual messy pompadour was extra messy. Thea bit her lip, knowing she had made it l
The following day, the triplets tried to respect Thea’s boundaries, so they trained in the morning without trying to kiss her.Once they were at school, they couldn’t keep their hands off her. Before first period they were making out—two on her neck, one on her mouth. Six hands on her body, rubbing their scents on her. Their Alpha blood made them need to show everyone she belonged to them, especially after last night’s Talent Show.“We’re going to be late,” she said, pushing them away.She retrieved the books she needed from her locker, then let them each take a hand, Conri with his hand on her hip. They heard snippets of conversations throughout the day coming in and out of classes. Everyone was talking about the Talent Show. Specifically about Thea and he
The triplets took Thea to Dr. Boman, the pack doctor, in the west wing of the pack house. He was a kind but serious middle-aged wolf with short brown hair and brown eyes. He relocated her shoulder and put her arm in a sling.“You’ll need to wear this for a few days to immobilize the area so it can heal,” Dr. Boman said. “Stay close to them. You’ll heal faster.”Being close to your mate helped you heal faster. Did everyone think they were mates?“You’ll heal faster once you shift, but since that’s still a few months away, you have to take it easy. You have a concussion. Head injuries are serious. No training until I say so. No strenuous activity.” He looked at the triplets. “Future Alphas, did you hear that? No strenuous activity. That mean
Thea and the triplets didn’t do early morning training the next day. That gave her time to prepare a tea from the herbs to mask her scent.“What are you doing?” Conri said.“Making a tea.”“For what?”“To mask my scent.”“Why?”“Because you all are going to be turning me on all day. I don't want everyone smelling me.”“But we want to smell you,” Kai said.“Xavier said he smelled me.”The triplets all looked at her. Alaric came over and gently hu
Dr. Boman gave Thea the all-clear six days after the attack. She could restart their early morning training the next day.Xavier hadn’t been at school since the day he assaulted Thea. No one knew where he was. Not even his pack members.Thea was on her way to lunch with Lizzy when a group of junior boys blocked them in the hallway.“Excuse me,” Thea said. She tried to push through them.Two boys grabbed her arms to hold her, and another grabbed her boobs. Lizzy backed up to let Thea do her thing. Thea didn’t hesitate to put all three of them on their backs. These weren’t shifted wolves. They were just boys. Her shoulder was healed. It wasn’t even a challenge. A crowd gathered to see what was going on. Half an hour later, Misty pulled off to the shoulder of the road.“So?” Thea said.“I’m not sure how to explain this. You’re so perfect. You’re kind, strong, and beautiful. I’ve always thought so. Everyone likes you. At the Talent Show, I couldn’t keep my eyes off you. My heart was racing. I’m sure everyone could smell me. I hoped that maybe you were like me, and that’s why the triplets were your best friends, and you never dated anyone, but now you’re with the triplets. Xavier said what he said, and I jumped on the bandwagon. I think it was instinct to try to hide my feelings.”“What do you mean?” Thea said.“I’m in love with you.” Misty wrung her hands in her lap
