He still hasn't woken up and it's been a little over 2 weeks now. I've been by his side the whole time.I just recently had him moved to my room. I wanted him to be more comfortable and it'll be easier for me since my room is more accessible for me being that I'm in a wheelchair.
Most of his bruises and swelling have healed by now thanks to werewolf healing. Although he did heal slower than he normally should had for a werewolf. But that's to be expected with as malnourished and weak as he was.
I've given him the bed and I have been sleeping on the chaise. I don't want to scare him in case he wakes up while I'm sleeping in bed with him. He'd probably freak out waking up next to somebody he didn't know.
Although I have laid with him a couple times to hold him when he would have a nightmare. I would hear him whimpering and his face would scrunch up. Sometimes he would even cry.
I would climb in bed and hold him. He would instantly relax and snuggle into me.
I spend most of my time here with him. Either sitting next to him holding his hand or just sitting in the room with him reading a book. I want to be here when he wakes up and being near him relaxes my wolf.
When I'm not with him all I can think about is him and wishing I knew who did this to him. It angers me so much and it made my wolf furious when we think of who could be responsible for this.
I want the fucking head of whoever dared to touch him. He dared to touch what's MINE!My wolf wants blood, we want to tear this bastard apart piece by piece.
Zeus has taken over a couple of times after getting so angry thinking about it. He would take off into the woods for hours hunting and killing anything we could find. I would come back home covered in blood, dirt and grime while plucking leaves and twigs out of my hair. Damn mutt at least could have tried not to get us so filthy! Of course he would huff at me for calling him a mutt.
But I can only neglect my duties for so long so I've slowly started getting back to my alpha duties.
I was trying to wake up, I kept hearing this annoying beeping sound but my eyes were just so heavy. Almost as if they were glued shut and I just couldn't open them.
I felt somebody holding my hand and talking to me. Almost sounded like he was crying, asking me to wake up and telling me I'm safe now. I don't recognize the voice but his voice is so calming and soothing. I stopped trying to open my eyes and drifted off again.
I woke up again but I haven't opened my eyes yet, I'm too comfy. It feels like I'm laying on a cloud. The bed is so soft I don't know if I've ever actually slept on a bed before.
I go to move my left arm but there's something heavy on it. I hear somebody mumbling so I slowly open my eyes. After blinking a few times I turn my head and look over to see what's on my arm.
When I look over at my arm I see somebody holding my hand and his head is laying on my arms. I couldn't help but stare at him, he's gorgeous!
He has long wavy light brown hair with blond highlights, well kept facial hair that's kind of tickling my arm as he moves his lips while he's whispering.
He has a small hoop earring in his ear and nose. And the tattoos! Holy cow, is there even a spot that doesn't have tattoos on this man!
I can't help but stare at the details of the tattoo on his neck and watching it move while he swallows.
His eyes are closed and he hasn't even noticed I'm awake yet. But I hear him mumbling please wake up.
I'm not sure what came over me, I slowly lifted my right hand over me and brush the hair away from his face.
He takes in a sharp breath and jerks his head up to look at me. His head whipped up so fast I thought he was going to give himself whiplash.
He looks at me with glassy eyes and whispers "your awake!"
I tried to talk but I started coughing right away. He reached over and grabbed a glass of water handing it to me. I gulped it down as it soothed my dry scratchy throat. I handed it back to him and whispered "thank you."
After he set the glass down he looked like he wanted to reach for my hand again but he fought the urge to do so.
"How are you feeling? Are you in any pain he asked?"
"I-I feel fine." I replied quietly.
"What is your name?" He asked after a few moments.
"Aiden" I replied.
He whispered my name almost like he was trying it out on his lips. He seemed to smile slightly after that almost as if he enjoyed saying me name.
"Where am? What happened?" I asked.
I thought for sure I died when I jumped off the cliff and hit the water. I didn't say that part to him though.
"Me and my beta found you floating down the river and brought you back here to the Midnight pack. You were in really bad shape. You had internal injuries and had to have surgery.You were unconscious for over two weeks." He said.
"Who are you?" I asked? "My name is Thaddeus, Alpha of the Midnight Moon pack."
My eyes go wide and my heart starts beating frantically. All the sudden it feels like I can't breathe. I slowly start moving away. I backed up until my back hit the headboard and I couldn't move any further.
What have I gotten myself into now I thought? An Alpha! Not again! At this point I can't breathe, my breaths are coming fast, my chest feels tight and I feel tears running down my face.
He looks worried for some reason. He puts his hands up as if trying to calm me down but that just makes me move more toward the middle of the bed out of his reach.
Then I see him through blurry eyes, getting up out of his chair and into the bed as he tried to reach for me.I flinched away.
But that's when I noticed for the first time that he wasn't sitting in a normal chair, but a wheelchair. I noticed the awkward way he put himself onto the bed from the chair.
For some reason this seemed to snap me out of it and I started to calm down and just looked at him in shock.
He seemed to realize that I finally noticed he was in a wheelchair and how my reaction changed from that.He put his head down closing his eyes and exhaled slowly while putting his hands back in his lap.
His reaction confused me. Aren't Alpha's supposed to be angry and mean. Aren't they supposed to hurt me.
He look like he could kill me just by looking at me or snap me in half with his fingers. I mean granite he's in a wheelchair, but the man is huge though!
The man's looks like he has some crazy upper body strength that's for sure!There's muscles popping out of places I didn't even know muscles would pop out of. If that wasn't intimidating enough his tattoos sure the hell are.
But the reaction I just got didn't fit what I expected from someone who was about to hurt me.
He sighed, "I'll just take my leave and let you rest." He started to move to go back into his chair.
Without thinking I reached out and grabbed his arm quickly and said "wait!"
As soon as I touched him I felt this weird sensation. I couldn't let go for a moment because I was so memorized by it. I just looked at my hand touching his arm.
It was weird... this little tingly sensations going up my fingers, all the way up my arm. Then it seemed to just shoot throughout my body and made my chest feel all warm and fuzzy.
I slowly pulled my hand back after a few moments and looked up at him.
"What was that?" I asked.
Looking me in the eyes he said, "that was the mate bond.... You're my mate." He said with his deep raspy voice.
I gasp and my eyes went wide.
I've heard about mates. I just didn't know the details, I didn't know how to identify a mate. I never had anyone tell me how the mate bond actually works. I only knew what it was.
He was about to say something else when there was a knock at the door.
Thaddeus POVI thought he would have woken up by now. It's been a little over two weeks. I'm sitting beside his bed holding his hand and looking at his beautiful face. I can't believe anyone would hurt someone so beautiful and innocent.While holding his hand I rested my head on his arm and I must have fallen asleep. I felt a hand brush across my face sweeping my hair aside.I shot my head up fast and was surprised to see beautiful sparkling gray eyes staring back at me.My eyes were a little blurry, they must have watered up a bit from my dream."You're awake!" I said, but it came out more like a whisper.After handing him a glass of water and setting it back on the table we just looked at each other for a few moments. I wanted to reach out and touch him so bad but I didn't want to scare him so I fought the urge.
Thaddeus POVOnce I got downstairs I stopped in the kitchen to ask Grace if she can make some soup to take up to Aiden. He is so underweight and malnourished the doctor ordered light foods to start with or it may make him sick. So I thought soup sounded perfect.Grace is like a mother to me. She practically raised me. She moved into the pack house when I was still in diapers to help take care of me.She's older, I think in her 80s but you couldn't tell. With werewolf aging, we age so much slower than humans. She looks like shes in her late 30's.She became the head cook in the kitchen when I was in my early teens.Grace is a kind lady. She's sweet and has that motherly personality to her. She's the perfect person to send up to Aiden and hopefully make him feel more comfortable.Grace is already aware of the situation with Aiden and t
Thaddeus POVAfter the meeting with Alpha Michael we headed down to the cell to interrogate the rogue from the other night. No matter how much we tortured him he would not give us any information. I left him passed out and had the doctor go tend to him so that we can continue tomorrow. I don't want him dying on me until I can get some information out of him.I just got back into the pack house. I'm going to use the shower down here because I'm covered in blood and I don't want to scare Aiden going into the room looking like this.By the time I headed up to the room it was already almost midnight. I'm sure Aiden's already asleep.I quietly go into the room, not wanting to wake, or scare him.As soon as I get in there and shut the door I look over at the bed. He's laying there sleeping all wrapped up in the sheets. He has the sheets wrapped in tangled all aroun
Aiden's POVI open the door from the bathroom and slowly peeked out. I didn't see the alpha anywhere. I slowly came out of the bathroom and notice he left some clean clothes neatly folded at the end of the bed.I looked around the room for him and couldn't find him anywhere. I checked the closet as well thinking maybe he was in there changing or something.I went back over to the bed and got dressed then sat on the end of the bed confused.I thought we were going downstairs to eat. That is what he said right.?Maybe I made him mad and now I don't get to eat breakfast.That must be it, I made him mad and as punishment I don't get to have breakfast now. My stomach tightened and knotted at the thought of that. I felt my eyes sting as tears built up in my eyes and then slowly began to fall.Gosh I'm s
Thaddeus POVWe just finished eating and I set everything aside. I figured now's a good time to ask him some questions."Aiden I'd like to know who did this to you?" He looked a little nervous then looked down fiddling with his fingers."I know it's probably hard for you to talk to me because you don't really know me. But I really care about you, I want to know what happened to you and who did this to you?You don't have to be afraid to talk to me. I'm not going to hurt you. You're safe here now and I will make sure of it. I won't let anyone hurt you again."He looked up a little bit, but still looked apprehensive about looking me in the eyes. I reached over and lifted his chin up more. "Aiden look at me... It's okay!" I said in a soft voice.I let out a sigh when he still wouldn't look me in the eyes."Can
Thaddeus POV I made my way to the training grounds and spotted Marcus yelling at some of the warriors and correcting their stances. Marcus is my lead warrior. He is the best and strongest warrior and does a great job training. Marcus is tall around 6'6. He's strong and very well built. He has light brown skin, long dark brown hair in dreads but he pulls them back during training.I'd say Xander and Marcus are pretty close in strength but not as strong as me. Marcus is a little faster then Xander which is one way he ends up taking him down so during training. When he spots me he yells to the warriors to continue with training and walks over to me with a concern look on his face. I guess he could tell how I was feeling by my expression and the aura rolling off of me. He walks up and grasp my shoulder as he says, "hey what's going on man?" Marcus just like Xander is really close to me. They're both like brothers and we always look out for each other. I haven't known him as long as X
Thaddeus POVAiden was asleep when I came into the room, so I quietly went into the bathroom and took a shower.After I was done I came out of the bathroom and he was still sleeping.He looks so adorable all wrapped up in the blankets sleeping. He's face down again. Everytime I see him sleeping he's face down. He must really like sleeping on his stomach. I smiled to myself, how adorable.I make my way over to his side of the bed. I gently brushed the hair away from his face and stroke his cheek with my thumb as he slowly opens his eyes and looks at me.I smiled at him then said "hi."He smiled back at me and said "hi."I swear my heart skipped a beat. Goddess I swear he's perfect. Thank you so much moon goddess for giving me a second chance mate, this wonderful blessing."It's lunch
Aiden's POVThaddeus seemed angry all of a sudden. Then Marcus suddenly took off out the front door.Xander started to get up but Thaddeus told him to stay here with me.I was confused, I didn't know what was going on.Thaddeus looked at me and firmly told me to stay here don't leave the pack house.Suddenly Thaddeus backed away from the table, turning his chair as he leaned forward and shifted into his wolf then took off.Under different circumstances I would have been in awe and took the time to admire his wolf because he was gorgeous! Also quite intimidating.I had never seen a wolf so big before.I'm sure if I was standing, his eyes would be eye level with mine.I can't believe he actually made it through the front door without tearing it apart.Both sides of his wolf actually scraped
