It was awkward facing her employees after giving into her primal urges. Finding Jacob's blue eyes placed everything right before her, he was her mate. The man the Goddess chose for her was right under her nose. She was still in his arms, unable to let go, captivated by his blue eyes and that heart melting smile. She can hear how fast his heart was beating, just like her he didn't want to let go. He was now focused on her observing her. Clearing her throat she reluctantly stepped out of his hold, she sure as hell didn't miss the disappointment in his eyes.
Her wolf whimpered thinking they were causing him pain even when he tried to cover it with a smile.
"Um...yeah sorry bout that. I apologize for my behavior please get back to work. Have a great day." she said in a very authoritative voice. The wolves under her, looked at her knowingly and slightly bowed their heads then watched Jacob. As a sixth sense, she felt his presence fading, quickly she turned around he was leaving. "Mr Kaiser, I mean Jacob" she called out nervously. He stopped and turned back to her by then the garden was clear even her best friend and assistant left.
Jacob clenched and un-clenched his fists and was avoiding her eyes, he didn't know what was happening. Why the urge to have her in his arms was so damn strong? R.J stood before him but didn't know what to say, from his scent he was a human. How can she do this? Being mindful of the cameras around them she finally spoke, "Will you be able to come with me to my office?" she asked playing with her jacket.
"S-Sure." he stuttered releasing a nervous breath of air. Silently they walked back into the building with their heads held high and unconsciously close. In the elevator, the tension was thick, glances were thrown and small smiles. "I'm Renae." she blurted out.
"Renae?" he asked confused. His deep husky accent tinged voice set her body on fire, Kara was groaning in pleasure at how wonderful he sounded.
"My full name is Renae Josephine but everyone calls me R.J" she explained smiling shyly at him. Jacob found it amusing that she was shy around him it was somewhat humbling. "I like Renae better" he replied brushing his fingers against hers. Goosebumps were now present on her hand as she took in a deep breath to calm her and Kara. They reached the top floor and she led the way.
Jacob was greatly impressed, the entire floor was dedicated to her and Tiffany. They passed her large glass themed office, like the perfect assistant she was, she turned a blind eye to both of them. R.J pointed out the conference room for the high profile clients, the game room for those who wish to showcase their product. A small kitchen and dining area, bathroom suite and at the end of it all double doors that led to her office. She watched as Jacob walked into one of her private areas, he took in everything appreciatively then stood by the window looking out at the view. They stayed in an uncomfortable silence when all they both want was to be in each other's arms once again. Before they finish what they started, they had to talk.
"Why did you kiss me?" he asked. The time for sugar coating things were long gone.
Yeah R.J why did you? In front of the whole company. She was arguing with herself and no one was winning.
"Impulse?" she offered. 'Girls. Help. Do I tell him now? What if I lose him?' she called out on the verge of freaking out.
'Just ask him out.' Tiffany offered.
"Impulse. Do you get that impulse for every guy you meet?" he asked. His tone spoke jealousy and disbelief.
"No only you." she rushed out while running to his side taking his hands. He squeezed them gently and held her gaze. "Please tell me what's going on. It feels like I have known you forever. The need to keep in contact with you is so strong. The last time I felt like this was my l-late wife. Please Renae do you know what is going on." he asked while gently brushing his knuckles against her cheek. Her hands were trembling in his, both her and her wolf was nervous and scared. They both wanted to tell him everything but the fear of losing him was strong.
"I just found you. I don't want to lose you." she said softly. "What do you mean by found me?" he asked confused noticing her eyes glazing with tears. What did she want to tell him, it had to be something big for her to be like this. On instinct to have her be happy at all times, he crashed his lips against hers, slowly moving them over hers giving her time to surrender to him. Her arms were around his neck once more and he found out that he like it there. Continuing his torture, he slipped his tongue in then bit her lips. R.J wanted more of his kisses, she wanted more of him; she moan rubbing her body against his as he pulled her in tighter. Her fingers brushed against something smooth by his ear causing her to stop.
"What's that?" she asked trying to get a closer look.
"My hearing aids." he said softly. He was deaf? she asked herself. It didn't make her want him any less. "Do I have to learn sign language?" she asked. Jacob was surprised by her question and shook his head no, "I can read lips and these are doing there job perfectly" he responded. She gave him a smile that flipped his heart and warmed it fully.
"Renae." he breathed out tucking a loose hair behind her ear.
"Jacob?" she called out to him, leading him to the sitting area. They both sat on the sofa holding each other's hand. "Wait." he said stopping whatever she was going to say by kissing her once more. It was filled with want and need all for her. "I had to do that." he breathed out placing light kisses on her face, feeling the heat on her cheeks.
"Would you like to come to a bonfire with me tonight? I'm chaperoning and it's always fun." she blurted out.
Jacob froze, not knowing what to say. He wanted to spend more time with her but he had his daughter's first parent/teacher meeting. Does she know about Jaz? he asked himself. "I would love to but I have a meeting which I can't cancel." he answered. Her shoulders slumped in disappointment, he quickly kissed her again. "I just met you and want to see you happy all the time for some reason." he said truthfully.
Looking into his blue eyes, she got lost once more not wanting to let him go. Her mate. A human mate. She would have to ease the news onto him slowly, the upside to it all she have lots of time to know him. "How bout lunch later?" he asked in a hopeful tone.
She nodded her head in excitement, capturing him in a hug. His arms tighten around her as he buried his face in the crook of her neck. Jacob laughed but didn't know why all he knew he was happy. Happy beside this woman. Answers can come after all he can focus on now was getting to know Renae Josephine Macallister. They held each other for a while not saying a word, kissing each other lightly, forgetting their work.
"You're so beautiful" he whispered in her ear reverently tracing her curves with his hand. "You're not too bad yourself" she returned bringing his head down for another kiss. He loved her kisses they were intoxicating just like her. A knock on the door brought them back to reality, groaning they both got up and walked to the door hand in hand.
Opening the door Tiffany stood waiting for them, she gave them a small smile and stepped away a bit, "Make sure to be free for lunch." he said softly against her ear. Her body shuddered in delight wanting to be held in his arms again.
"I will." she returned kissing his lips firmly. Reluctantly he released her hands and walked away. Tiffany kept her head low as he walked by her then into the elevators.
"You haven't told him then." she said walking into the office.
"I couldn't. I just found him and couldn't risk losing him" R.J confessed. "Just take it easy" Tiffany said giving her a hug.
They went over her schedule making time for lunch then sat back and talked. "I can't believe our new Alpha is here." she exclaimed. That's when it hit her, Black Heart's new Alpha is a human.
"Shit. I have to put things in place. Pull up his file please" R.J asked getting her phone to call Ryan. As he picked up, she was shown the file.
"I need nightly patrol to be started at this address from tonight. #14 Malvain Estates. No more than four." she said getting straight to the point.
"Alpha this person is not in our territory maybe we can get Shane to do this detail."
"No!" she snapped at him.
The line was quiet then she heard him swore. "He's human." he confirmed softly.
Before she can say anything else he cut her off, "I will handle everything. Congrats Alpha. I so gotta see this guy. Gotta tell the guys." he said with excitement in his voice.
"Not everyone" she warned with a smile on her face.
"No promises." he countered before hanging up. R.J smiled to her self as she looked at Jacob's picture then went through his file. A picture of a little girl below the title next of kin caught her attention, "He has a daughter?"
Tiffany looked over her boss' shoulder, "She's so adorable. You got an instant family Alpha"
"Looks like it." R.J replied wondering if she was ready for it.
