Emmett’s POVI’m sitting by my mate’s bed, when an older version of Luca and a redhead, come crashing in.“Luca,” the woman screams and grabs at my mate. I restrain myself understanding she must be his mother. “James, he’s marked!”The male grabs at my mate's neck.“Who the fucked marked my son?” His dad yells.“James, calm down,” Uncle Liam says, holding James down. “He found his mate. He found his fated mate.”“Where is she? Why is she not here? What kind of mate would abandon him?” His mother says, rubbing his head.“I’m right here, I carried him here, I haven’t left him,” I say, in almost a whisper.“Who are you?” The woman asks, almost in tears.“I’m his mate,” I tell her.I see Uncle Liam talking to Luca’s father.“It’s not fucking possible, Alphas have Lunas. Alphas are never gay,” Alpha James says.“Yet, here we are,” I say to him. “Marked and mated.”“Exactly, where and when, would you have had time for that?” Alpha James asks, as Uncle Liam still holds him back.“That doesn’
Luca’s POVI hear Uncle Taylor question, why dad is having a difficult time accepting my mate. Now, Uncle Taylor and Dad are like brothers, so this is going to be an interesting conversation.“Can you ask them to come in, or let me out?” I ask the doctor, who just finished her assessment of my condition.“Sure, you look good. One more night and we will release you to your mate,” the doctors smiles and leaves.Emmett is the first through the door and by my bedside.“Just one more night and I’m all yours,” I tell him.“Things I’m gonna do to you,” Emmett teases, as I pull him in for a kiss.“I can’t wait,” I smile. “I assume from all I’ve heard, that my mate and I can’t go the Silver Creek Packhouse?”My parents stop and mindlink each other.“We want you home,” my mother states.“My home is where my mate is. So, if you can’t come to terms with the fact that my mate is male, I’m not coming to Silver Creek,” I sit up, as much as I can. My stomach still sore. “But, when I do return to Silv
Emmett’s POVLuca is released from the hospital, but needs to stay close for a few more days. My cousins, Sara and Shay, are still back at Blue Mountain while their Alpha secures the pack. It’s Monday again. One week and one day since the battle. Luca is up and walking, as we come into the Southern Crescent Packhouse. “Brother,” Edward calls out to me, as we enter. “This is my mate, Monica.”The she-wolf is small, chocolate colored skin, her hair is shoulder length and natural. “Nice to meet you,” I smile and shake her hand. “My mate, Luca.”Luca smiles and shakes both of their hands. “Move out of my way,” I hear my mother yelling and running. May the goddess help us. She grabs Luca’s face. “Oh, you are simply handsome! I can’t believe it. I mean, look at your dad, you have good genes, but you really did something with them. Welcome to the family. I’m your mother-in-law, please don’t hate me, but I will get your Luna trained. I promise.”“Mom, chill,” I say. “I will not chill.” Sh

Emmett’s POVI wake up in a bed, for the first time in over a week. It’s Tuesday, there is a nose in the back of my neck and an arm around my torso. He is breathing steadily. He is my mate. My mate has me, I have my mate.“Good morning, Baby,” Luca whispers in my ear. “How are you feeling today?”“I’m amazing and you?” I turn, so we are face to face.“I didn’t know I could be satisfied and comfortable, at the same time. I didn’t know my heart could belong to one person, so completely.” Luca traces my face with his finger. “I’m so, fucking, happy!”I can’t help but smile.“We need to get down to breakfast. I want to see if Thomas needs anything to get his Lunas back,” I kiss Luca and we get ready for our day.We find Thomas sitting alone, at a table with only coffee.“Hey, we wanted to know if we could do anything to help you get the girls back,” Luca asks, as we sit down.“Thanks for the offer. I think I have almost everything secure. I want to finish getting the last of Dark Crescent
Luca’s POVRiding shotgun in an SUV, with my mate driving the busy streets of Atlanta, is a bit unnerving. He seems right at home and unbothered by the traffic. I prefer rolling hills, dirt roads, and no hint of people.“So, my family business is nightclubs and retail space rental,” Emmett talks calmly, like two tractor-trailers didn’t just attempt to run us off the road. “What is the Lopez family business?”“In our Realm, we train packs; in the human realm, casinos. We own four in Las Vegas.” I tell him, gripping the door panel, as he swerves to avoid a motorcycle going the wrong way. “Can’t people in Atlanta drive?”Emmett laughs, “No, they can’t. You don’t drive do you?”“We have a driver. Cliff drives me.” I answer, closing my eyes. “I’m usually in the back seat.”Emmett laughs again. “Close your eyes, Babe, we will be at the building codes office in five, I’ll drop off this stuff for Thomas and then it’s twenty minutes to the club site.”“Do you think you could teach me to drive?
Emmett’s POV“I TOUGHT IT WAS A LIE!” Stella’s scream echos all around us, as Luca and I stand in the foyer of the Packhouse, being introduced to the pack. “I slept with you; you are not gay!”“Honey, green doesn’t work for you, and the whole pack just heard you,” Monica states defending us.“Please, I’ve had your man too,” Stella spits, before turning and facing me. “I put up with the glances, stares, whispers, all to be yours. And you toss me aside for a … fuck you Emmett, Cullen Wallace.”Stella storms away, while the rest of the pack blinks at Ed and I.“Jealousy sucks all around,” Luca booms, breaking the tension, making everyone laugh. “Thank you, Mountain Peak, for raising such an incredible Alpha Wolf. The goddess has never gifted one Alpha male to another, I don’t know what I did to earn such as gift, but I’m blessed to done it.”Everyone awes and claps. Luca puts his hand on my back and pulls me close.“You want to kiss me, in front of everyone?” I whisper shocked. “I’d kis
Luca’s POVI had mom find Emmett and I matching tuxedos. I feel these will come in handy. We have white, black, gray, and blue. She also went the extra mile and got matching everyday suits in black, three shades of blue, tan, forest green, two shades of gray, a dark purple, and what Emmett called crimson. And special Silver looking tuxedos for our accession.“I feel our mothers have conspired,” Emmett tells me, as we put on the white tuxes for tonight. They fit perfectly.“Hey, as long as we look good,” I say, checking him out. “And baby, that tux is doing things to me.”I grab his hips and attack his neck.“We just made love for two hours,” He moans, but leans in.“Just once more,” I whine.“Horny Alpha,” Emmett does pull away. “Later, sir.”“Not too much later, sir,” I nibble his ear, earning me a growl.“You play too much,” Emmett swats at me, making me smile.“As long as I’m playing with you, what does it matter,” I tease, wrapping him in a hug.“Play later, your dad is probably a
