Erin’s POVI sat in my car with a heavy heart after my encounter with Gavin. I stared down at my hand where I could see the indent of the ring that once occupied that finger, and I sighed in defeat.I was going to have to tell Henry that I misplaced the ring. He was going to be so upset with me.“Well, if you didn’t insist on not using his money, then you could have gotten that ring,” Emily said with a sigh.“Are you crazy? I couldn’t use his money for something like this. I don’t need his money…” I argued in return. “I get paid in a few days. Maybe I will try again.” I stared out my window; the shadow of Gavin had disappeared long ago. I shouldn’t still be thinking about him, but that woman he was with was very beautiful. I wasn’t aware he had someone as well; I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. He is Gavin Pierce after all; he’s incredibly handsome. It would have been crazy if he didn’t have someone just as beautiful on his arm.I was a nobody in comparison.“Don’t say such ridic
Third Person POVSusanna, beautiful, talented, and noble, was called the wrong name in bed! That has never happened to her before, and she wasn’t liking it.She got out of bed and immediately got dressed.“I didn’t mean to call you by her name,” Gavin tried to explain. “The embarrassment of thinking I saw her earlier was fresh in my mind. It was an honest mistake.”“Is this Erin someone of significance to you?” She asked, folding her arms across her chest.“No. She was just someone I used to know.”“Do I need to be worried?”“Of course not,” he breathed. “I think I’m just tired. Perhaps we can try this again another night?”“That’s fine with me,” she said, feeling a wave of annoyance. She turned away from him without another word and left his room.Whomever this Erin person was, she was getting in the way of her relationship and Susanna was not going to stand for it.As soon as she returned to her car outside of Gavin’s home, she dialed her assistant, Caterina’s, phone number.“I want
Third Person POV“What the hell just happened?!” One of the waitresses yelled, trying to stand to her feet but the floor was too slippery from the water.The waitresses were confused as to where this water had come from all of a sudden. Erin was mopping the floor on the other side of the restaurant. How could she have gotten this water to them so quickly?They looked around frantically, trying to see if there was a leak or something.“Did that bitch splash water at us?!” One of them hissed once she finally managed to get to her feet.They glanced in the direction of Erin but then realized that she was gone.…Gavin’s POVGavin spent the better part of his day in his office. He made a complete fool of himself with Susanna that previous night.He royally fucked up.“Because you want Erin’s sweet—” “Shut up,” Gavin stopped his wolf before he continued his sentence. Though, he knew what his wolf was saying was true.“Beta Seth, did you find anything out about Erin’s husband?” Gavin asked
Erin’s POVGavin was eyeing me carefully; I could feel my face warming. I couldn’t believe he would show up at my place of work like this. He requested me to be his waitress; I was never going to hear the end of it from the others.He briefly glanced at the gentleman that sat across from him at the table; the gentleman was looking between the two of us warily. I recognized him from the news; he often stood beside Gavin during his speeches.Beta Seth.“Seth, leave us for a few moments,” Gavin ordered, keeping his eyes locked on mine.Seth looked uncertain for a moment; hesitant to leave. That is until Gavin turned his glares in his direction.“I’ll be outside,” Seth muttered, standing to his feet. He gave me a sheepish grin before leaving the restaurant.I turned my attention back to Gavin.“I mean it, Gavin. If you don’t leave, I’ll—”“You’ll what? Have me arrested,” he said, a mocking grin on his face. “Nobody has the right to tell me where I can and cannot eat.”“Lucky for me, I’m a
Erin’s POVOf course, I knew that Gavin had abilities. It was rumored that he had many. But I never thought I would actually see him freezing time before my eyes.“Now, where were we?” He asked with a playful look in his eyes and that smirk never leaving his lips.I wasn’t even sure what to say at that point, but I knew what I wanted. I shouldn’t have wanted it as badly as I did. But my heart was racing at lightning speed and Emily was howling excitedly. She wanted this more than I did, and I worried I was about to lose control of her.She was itching to be released and to be with our mate once again. I had to keep silently reminding her that we rejected him and that this wasn’t what we wanted.But I knew I wasn’t going to be strong enough to keep her hidden much longer. Especially while Gavin’s fingers were tracing the underlining of my panties, making me wetter by the moment. His hard cock was itching to be released from his pants as I sat on his lap.I felt his soft lips kissing th
Erin’s POVI pulled myself off him, feeling a wave of shame crossing me. I grabbed my underpants off the ground and slipped them back on, adjusting my skirt and pulling my hair out of my face and into its usual bun.By the time I finished, I turned back to Gavin. He was already fully dressed and standing. I hadn’t even seen him moving.He was watching me with concern in his eyes.I heard what he had said moments ago, but I was trying to play it off like I hadn’t.“You should go…” I told him, trying to keep my tone even.“Erin—”“I’m married, Gavin,” I snapped at him, tears filling my eyes. “Can’t you respect that? Can’t you respect me?”A flash of hurt went through his eyes and for a moment, I thought he was going to argue with me. But he didn’t.He sighed.“I’ll be leaving now,” he said.Soon, I heard the restaurant being brought back to life. Everyone was resuming what they were doing before time was frozen. The clicking on the clock continued and Kelsey’s shadow grew until she was
Gavin’s POV“Alpha, I just got word from the Moonshadow organization,” Seth said, coming into Gavin’s office. “They are refusing to tell us who their members are.”Gavin stared at his Beta for a long moment, fury rising in him.“If they won’t tell us, then I’ll have to figure it out myself.”…Erin’s POVHenry was already home by the time I returned from work. I tried hard to brush my encounter with Gavin out of my mind before returning home.I had to be careful. Henry was extremely talented at finding things out and I didn’t want him to know this information. I didn’t want to know how weak I had become.I smelled the fresh scent of dinner being cooked in the kitchen. As I entered the kitchen, I see him standing over a hot stove. He was in the moment and seemed to be cooking with such delicacy.Henry was an amazing cook; I wasn’t bad at cooking either and if I had gotten home first, I would have made dinner. I was exhausted tonight though, so I was pleased that he took the initiative.
Erin’s POVErin watched Henry leave feeling nothing but dread. If something were to happen to him on this mission, she would never forgive herself. She had abandoned her partner completely, forcing him to fight for the Moonshadow organization by himself.She was once a trusted member of Moonshadow, but she quit after her “incident.” She couldn’t even think about returning to them, regardless how badly Henry wanted her to.She just wanted to live a simple life and pretend that none of her past had ever happened. She wanted to live a happy and normal life with her husband.But even Henry wasn’t simple, unlike how he portrayed himself. Although he was great at playing the life of simple; he only did this for her because it was what she requested. She needed to keep the act of a simple life and Henry agreed to help her in any way he could.Externally, he is a lawyer. He’s rich, gentle, and elegant. He appears as if he wouldn’t hurt a fly.But on the inside, he was dangerous and powerful w
