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
Emmett’s POV.I’m driving to Blood Moon in my baby girl, with Luca sleeping in the passenger seat.The last three days have been interesting. James and Luca have been working on the transition, so I only see Luca at breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bed.Erin has been keeping me busy with her duties. She runs the operations of the pack like a corporation. She has the head warrior do all the training schedules, the head cook does the Packhouse and cafe menus, the head housekeeper manages the Omegas, the hospital is run by the packs retired doctor, the school by the former headmaster, the airport by a trusted friend, and the pack Infrastructure by several people. All of them report daily to Erin, who makes final decisions. She also holds civil court, to handle minor disputes between neighbors, mates, and former mates. Yes, even werewolves can get a ‘divorce’, it’s just not common. How she does it, I hope to learn. In six weeks, it will be all me! Holy shit, in six weeks, I will be Lun
Emmett’s POV“Cameron,” Luca did not resist the bro hug Cameron offered. “Good to see you, man!”“Hey, like I said on the phone, I really appreciate the confidence, I won’t let you down,” Cameron’s smile is perfect. It’s infuriating. “Hi, I’m Cameron.”He holds his hand out to me. I want to crush it and make Luca choose another less good-looking Beta.“Hello,” I shake his hand and look to Luca. I was polite enough to not only resist hugging someone, I introduced him as my mate.“Cameron, this is my mate, Emmett. We spoke about,” Luca wasn’t as proud as I wanted him to be. He actually kept his voice low, like he wanted only Cameron and Zach to know who I am to him.“Yes,” Cameron also lowers his voice. “Nice to meet you, Luna.”Zach seems to pick on the tension, and lowering of voices. And Zach is not one to put up with such things. He gives me a look that I read as, he’s about to fabulous this meeting. I smirk back, waiting to see what he comes up with.“Emmett, we have to talk, we ne
Luca’s POVWe enjoy our evening, but I’m ready to get my mate alone and talk about Zach. The Beta pip squeak didn’t let me and Cameron out of his site all day long. Now, I find out he and my mate had a thing. What was he a spy? Is Emmett so insecure, that he needs me spied on by his ex?“Well, this was fun,” Emmett says, after more jokes and chats. “But, we have tandem training in the AM, and I for one need some rest.”“Same,” Melissa echos.Once the door is closed, both Emmett and I remove our shirts and bare our chests. We are about to fight as men do.“Talk to me about Zach,” I say first.“Talk to me about Sally,” he snaps back.“Sally who?” I ask confused.Emmett looks annoyed, “Luna Sally, said she fucked you.”“Completely possible. But if it was a hit and quit, I wouldn’t remember her name.” I confess. Yeah, it makes me a jerk, but I don’t care. The only wolf I give a fuck about is Emmett. The rest are just noise. “Wait, is that why you introduced me to Zach so quickly? Because
Emmett’s POV Luca got me off the field as quickly and quietly as possible. Rita told us about a private gym where she and her sister practiced when they were learning.Luca spent hours teaching me basics and sparing with me. He never lost patience or acted frustrated. We ate lunch in the cafe, before showering for classes. It was in the shower, I showed my appreciation for his understanding and willingness to teach me. We went to our individual classes. I learned about seating etiquette and invitation design. “Hey, so do you have like part ownership of Mastic?” Melissa asks me, as we are working on designs on tablets.“It’s owned by my family; all profits are in a trust and spit evenly, between the two packs. I get a paycheck as a board member. Well, I did, I won’t now,” I tell her. “Does that mean you can get us in? None of us are 21, but as werewolves….” Melissa flexes her eyebrows. I smile. “Sure, who all wants in?”“Me, Clint, and Tim are for sure, should we ask Drake, Zach
