Zoe’s POV I hadn’t planned to tell Dillon I loved him. In fact, given the events of the day, I surprised even myself when the words slipped free. But no matter how long and hard I’d fought the emotion, I could no longer deny the truth of it. And holding back from each other had brought both of us nothing but misery. I didn’t want to hold back anymore. Dillon’s pupils dilated in shock as my words registered with him. I ducked my head shyly, suddenly embarrassed by my outburst. But Dillon lifted my chin to face him and the pure joy in his eyes erased all my concerns. “Oh no you don’t! You can’t say something like that to me then hide. Say it again, love. Let me stare deep into those gorgeous baby blues when you do. And you stare right back intp my eyes, read in them everything I don’t have the words to say until you understand exactly how I feel about you.” He charged, not even his signature teasing grin enough to hide the depth of his emotions. “Whew!” I fanned myself playfully.
Dillon’s POV I hurried to meet Zoe at our cabin in the woods, the one where we’d made love for the first time. I couldn’t wait to see her and tell her the good news, that the Alphas were going to help handle Blair. I couldn’t wait to hold her knowing she was finally accepting our bond. I remembered where the key to the front door was hidden and quickly fished it out to let myself in. If my stubborn little baby doll was in an obedient mood, she would be waiting in bed for me completely naked and that’s exactly where I hoped to find her. All was quiet when I entered the house and anxiously made my way to the bedroom. I pushed the door open soundlessly and what I saw behind it melted my heart. Zoe was curled up in the bed, laying on her side with the sheet tucked up under her chin, fast asleep. I quickly stripped out of my clothes and tiptoed around the bed to crawl in beside her. But the sight that met me when I pulled the covers back had me instantly hard and a string of expletive
Dillon’s POV Watching Zoe walk away was like watching my heart leave my body. But at least this time I knew I would be holding her again soon. Because she was finally mine. Mine! Despite being a Gamma and the best warrior in our pack, I considered myself a mostly peaceful person. I only fought when circumstances demanded it, my Alphas, Luna or my pack being threatened. But someone hurting my mate was a whole different story and Blair’s threats were hurting Zoe. My wolf wanted to rip her heart from her chest and crush it in his hands. And every step we took closer to her apartment, his bloodlust was only rising. It was going to take all my strength to stop him from killing her in cold blood. But as angry as I was, I wanted to try a peaceful approach first. Though I realized now that Blair always had an agenda, I had always considered her a friend. I hoped I could convince her to let this ridiculous obsession go and wait for the one the Moon Goddess made for her. “End her now!
Dillon’s POV “Wh-,what?” She stuttered. Zoe’s gorgeous blue eyes stared back at me, searching for the meaning behind my words. Even with tears staining her face, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen and I could have let myself drown in her penetrating gaze. But I didn’t. Instead, I forced myself to only show her my steel resolve. “I, Dillon Kane, Gamma of the Glass Lake Pack, re-, unh!” Zoe slammed her hand over my mouth, stopping me from finishing the rejection. “Don’t you fucking dare reject me, Dillon!” She growled angrily. “You don’t get to do that! Especially not in some misguided attempt to be noble, sparing me more heartbreak or some other dumb shit! “I’m perfectly capable of deciding for myself what I am and am not willing to tolerate. You don’t get to decide that for me, no matter how well intentioned it was. Besides, if anyone gets to reject somebody in this bond, it’s me!” “You’re right. You should be the one to do it. Go ahead.” I said stoically, clenching m
Dillon’s POV Zoe’s claws drew blood as they sunk into my forearms, but whether she was trying to get out of my hold or anchor herself to me, I couldn’t tell. “You sent the video.” She hissed at Blair. Her words hit me like an oncoming train, nearly crushing me as the truth of them sunk in. As soon as Zoe made the accusation, I knew she was right. But even so, the twisted grin on Blair’s face confirmed just how proud she was of the act. I lunged forward before anyone could stop me, and wrapped my hands around her throat, squeezing painfully. My wolf was in control, snarling and teeth snapping inches from her face as she fought for air. “St-, stop,” she coughed out, clawing at my hands, trying to loosen my grasp. “Dorian, let her go.” Zoe spoke softly to my wolf, placing her hand on my back and rubbing it gently. “She’s not worth it. Let Dillon come back.” After a few heaving breaths trying to calm himself, Dorian dropped Blair to the floor. She just sat there on her hands an
Zoe’s POV “What the fuck is going on here?” Dillon thundered, stomping over to the edge of the pool, then looking back at Julia and I with a venomous glare. “Dillon, thank Goddess!” Blair whined, playing the wounded damsel role to perfection. “Did you see what she did to me? She attacked me for no reason! We need to report her to the Alpha before she goes around hurting other innocent pack members!” I rolled my eyes at her performance and Julia snorted behind me, totally unimpressed and unconcerned. But then again, why would she be? She hadn’t just assaulted the woman. Surely Dillon wouldn’t believe her, though. Would he? “Is that true?” Dillon demanded, still wearing a deadly snarl on his face. “She’s the one in the pool. Infer from that what you will.” I shrugged, refusing to apologize for what I’d done. The bitch deserved it. “Of course that’s not true!” Julia jumped to my defense. “How could you even ask such a thing? You can’t possibly believe Zoe would attack her un
Zoe’s POV After last night’s disturbing dream. I felt like I hadn’t slept at all. I didn’t want to be rude but my eyelids were drooping all through breakfast and my mind delved deep into the archives looking for a suitable excuse to bug out. Normally work would be my default but Julia already knew I had the day off. Thankfully, my brother and Finn showed up to collect Sarah, having reached their limit in the time apart department, effectively putting an end to “girl time.” “Men are such fun-spoilers. I had visions of makeovers and mimosas. Yours virgin of course, Kat.” She added quickly before the Alphas could protest. All the men turned to look at her like she’d just kicked their puppy. Kat walked up behind Ryan where he was standing at the stove flipping pancakes for the new arrivals and wrapped her arms around him. “Sorry, Jules. I can’t today. Christian is going to do one of those 3-D ultrasounds for us.” She looked down, rubbing her belly lovingly, then her head snapped
Zoe’s POV After leaving Dillon, I snuck back in the side door, grabbed my bag and high-tailed it back to the bathroom. I quickly showered to erase all traces of Dillon’s scent and changed into my pajama pants and t-shirt before rejoining the crew. “No wonder you were gone so long!” Zayne exclaimed when he saw my dripping, wet hair and change of clothes. “Yeah, sorry. I didn’t get a chance to shower after work today and was feeling icky. I hope you don’t mind that I helped myself to your shampoo and body wash.” I deflected, turning to Kat. “Of course not!” Kat assured me. “And you’re back just in time to help us grab some snacks and head to the theater room.” “Mmm! Snacks! Now you’re speaking my language.” I flashed her an approving smile, determined to put Dillon out of my mind and enjoy myself even if it killed me. “Where do you think you’re going, Kitten?” Finn caught Sarah around the waist and pulled her back when she moved to leave with us. “Finnick!” She squealed. “I
Dillon’s POV I leaned my head against the bathroom door, taking a minute to catch my breath and enjoy the echoed pleasure of touching my mate. I could still feel her soft hand roughly stroking my cock, the sparks adding to the ecstasy, and her wet heat pulsing around my fingers as I fucked her hard and fast. She was so fuckin’ incredible. The minute I first laid eyes on her tonight, I was struck dumb. Zoe is always fuckin’ gorgeous but watching her strut around here all night in that ridiculous excuse for clothing nearly killed me. My cock was so achingly hard all through dinner, I nearly took it out and jacked myself to the sight of her tits in front of everyone. It wouldn’t have been a stretch to imagine my cock sliding through her silky cleavage while I stroked myself to completion. When Zoe excused herself to the bathroom, I didn’t even think, just followed her automatically. There was only one goal, get her to spread those creamy thighs and wrap those long, toned legs aroun
