"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.
Thane POVAs I followed Harlow up the stairs, I was unsure if this was real or just a figment of my imagination. Granted, she let me touch her earlier, and well, I did more than just touch her. Pulling myself out of my jumbled thoughts, I follow Harlow, hot on her heels to my room. Raidon had managed to get the grumpy Leon up, so we could sleep together. When I stepped into the room, our mingled scents calmed me in a way I hadn’t felt in ages, as if I could finally breathe for the first time. As I climb into my usual spot and Radion gets on the outside of me, I watch Harlow slip between Rhen and Leon. Of course, I would prefer if Harlow slept next to me, but I’m not pushing my luck tonight by demanding her to sleep next to me. I wasn’t going to risk getting banished back to the den to sleep alone again. However, I can’t help but feel jealous of how she clings to Leon the most. It’s like I’m a damn light fixture in this house - useless and unnecessary. But it’s alright. Baby steps
Harlow POVRaidon pushes me off him, and I reach for Leon, but he jerks away from me as if I would burn him the moment our skin brushes. Rejection smashes me, and I growl at him in frustration."No, Harlow. You know I can't. Don't make me do this!" Leon whimpers, but I still feel that his need for me is just as intense as the need I have for him. He wants me just as much. So why do they keep denying me?"I won't let you hurt her, Leon," Thane growls at Leon as Leon tries to pull away. Only at the sound of his voice did I notice Thane standing behind him, his hands on Leon's shoulders, and it upset me knowing the only reason Leon hadn't run from me was that Thane was holding him in place. My blood was boiling, and if one of them wouldn't give me what I wanted, I was going to take it from them, whether they liked it or not, the bond refusing to give up this time until I claimed them. I'm not glass. They can't break me by touching me. I'm horny and hormonal, and I need one of their dam
