"I apologized, didn't I. You said apologize. What do you want me to do, get on my damn hands and knees and beg you to forgive me?" Well, that wouldn't hurt," I snapped back at him sarcastically, and he suddenly dropped to his knees. I blink at him as he stares at my huge belly. Any lower, and he would disappear under it like my damn vagina I haven't seen in two weeks.Thane stares at my stomach and the stretch marks that now laced my skin. As if seeing how huge I was now really made him see exactly what my body contained. Ten little fingers, ten little toes, and one beating heart that he helped make. The feelings through bond told me he wanted to touch it, feel her move, and his apology was long forgotten, mesmerized as he watched my belly ripple as she moved inside me.His hands move to my hips before running up and across my belly. He rests his hands on the sides of my belly, and her movement stops for a second before it feels like she rolls, my belly moving in a wave beneath his h
Rhen POV"Thane, let me at least help; I'm not that bad at cooking," I hear Harlow tell Thane as I walk into the foyer. Raidon gives me a look hearing them; they weren't arguing and were in the same room together and not at each other's necks. Walking into the hall, I see Thane huff and he has this pained look on his face, "Harlow, please let me do it. You can watch,"'Oh, god, please say yes,' I thought to myself that woman could burn water."My cooking isn't that terrible, and you…." Thane raises an eyebrow at her, and I stifle my laugh as I watch them quietly. Raidon and I had raced here the moment we felt her pain but seeing them now, Thane was taking care of her, and they seemed to be getting along."You ate the spaghetti made," she huffs. He grabs her hips, setting her on the countertop. "A+ for effort. But you couldn't cook to save your life; I can't stand eating your cooking anymore. I don't think my stomach can take it. But if you insist, I will suffer in silence until it ki
"You're not hopping in with them?" I ask her, retrieving a towel from the cupboard under the sink. "My scent overwhelmed him," she says, and I look at Leon worriedly. He had been off since he arrived home and if Raidon was in there with them, something must have gone down for her to be sitting at the sink looking upset. "I don't get why he doesn't just feed off me," Harlow mumbles. He could werewolves had more blood than humans, but still Leon rather not risk it."Because he has gone cold turkey, he will struggle to stop," I tell her, shucking her under the chin before unbuttoning my shirt. Raidon hops out so I can take his place, and I don't miss how she licks her lips or miss the scent of her arousal as she watches him grab a towel securing it around his waist."Don't look at me like that. You know I want you," he says to her. Her hormones had been all over the place, and she even attacked Leon while he was asleep the other night, yet none of us were willing to touch her, afraid o
Harlow POVStupid hormones were rampant; I knew I was being over-sensitive and slightly irrational at Leon's rejection and how Raidon ripped me out of the shower when Leon growled at me. Yet my bond craved them, and none of them would touch me. It was driving me crazy, and I am sure it was driving Raidon, Rhen, and especially Leon crazy, considering I slept in his room.After getting dressed in cotton shorts and a tank top, I wander downstairs with a towel wrapped around my head. Whatever Thane was cooking smelled delicious as I wandered to the kitchen to find him frying mince and what smelled like herbs. I grab a bottle of water out of the fridge."That was quick," Thane states, and I shrug, wandering off toward the living room. "Harlow?" I don't bother answering. Instead, I keep walking into the living room; I grab the remote and flick the TV on before settling into my spot on the couch while trying to ignore the urge to either cry or touch myself.These stupid hormones had me all o
He kissed me again, his tongue tangling with mine as his hand returned to my face, brushing my hair over my shoulder. Through the haze, he steps back, unbuttoning his shirt. His eyes swept over my body, another low groan escaping from his beautiful lips, and desire coursed through me, his gaze making me hyperaware of how much I craved this gentle side of him. He steps closer moving to stand in front of me. His lips met my already bruised neck from the marks he left there. He kissed. I sighed. He licked. I moaned. He sucked, and I shivered. He nibbled, and I gasped and I got chills when he groaned. Thane then stood straight, looking at me, watching his hand move over my swollen round belly. I found no repulsion in his gaze, only desire. He ran his fingers over my pussy. It was already wet with slick, embarrassingly so. Looking at me with a smirk, I could tell he was enjoying the reaction my body and bond were having to his touch. It made me blush, only to cry out when he gripped my h
I quickly raced upstairs using the back stairwell to change and quickly shower, not wanting another run-in with Elaine However, when I was showering, I could hear shouting downstairs. Thane was losing his mind at someone; I had a sneaky suspicion it was Raidon. Or maybe Elaine. Regardless, I took my time, dreading going downstairs and facing the woman. I hoped Thane meant what he said, that he would get rid of her if she became too much. I did not feel like arguing with that woman or my mates. Grabbing the hair dryer, I quickly dry my hair before pulling it into a bun. I hope they weren’t expecting a prim, proper Omega because I looked quite the opposite in my purple pajamas with tiny wolves and my rainbow socks. Choosing comfort over the look, if I had to endure this woman, I was doing it comfortably. Making my way downstairs, the arguing had stopped, and I moved toward the kitchen for once, preferring Thane’s presence over everyone else's; he was muttering under his breath angrily
Thankfully, I let Thane cook; it was worth giving up my nonexistent chef’s hat for. Besides, if I gave them burnt noodles, it would have left a great impression on my in-laws and probably a bad taste in their mouths.Dinner was quite pleasant, surprisingly. Leon and Rhen cleared the table, and now with nothing to distract me from speaking with the woman, I kind of wanted to flee, but then Rhen and Leon returned with a cinnamon and custard tart I hadn’t realized Thane also made. And no way was I missing dessert. Thane snorts when I go to get up but then immediately sit down, seeing dessert. Grabbing my spoon, Elaine gets up, grabbing the bag Raidon retrieved for her, and I freeze. Instead of approaching me, however, she passes it to Raidon, who in turn passes it to me. I let out a breath of relief, knowing that she wouldn’t suffocate me by coming over. “I got a few things for the baby and also a few sentimental things from when Raidon was a pup,” she tells me, nodding toward the bag
We all sat quietly for a second as my mind mulled over what I just learned. No wonder Elaine hated me. She believed I had killed the one woman who saved her. “I spent a few years in rotation. Hana used to send me birth control until she introduced me to Charles,” she explains.“And Sofia?” I ask.“She too was on rotation until she met her mates,” she sighs heavily. “And Harper, we tried to find her, Waylen and Curtis hunted her down for years, we gave up searching for her knowing it wasn’t safe, Curtis was always watching us, following us with every lead we found,”“Curtis? Is he a member of the council?” I ask, not having heard that name before. Elaine shakes her head. “You never met him? He is the headmaster now of the Omega facility, Curtis Black?” she asks. I blink at her Mr. Black was this Curtis person?“Waylen Black was his father. He took over after he died,” Elaine tells me.“So Mr. Black was looking for her?” She sits back in her chair, staring at the bracelet in her hand.
