We walked silently back to where everyone was waiting for us in the tense silence. My mate stalked towards me, taking my hands into his.
"Do you want to stay longer or want to go inside?", he asked. I wanted to stay to get mingle with the pack but I want to spend more time with my mate too.
"Let's go in, I want to sleep", I said having no intention of sleeping. I have something else in my mind, something I should have done earlier.
I'm ready. My wolf said in a breathless voice. I smirked knowing what her intentions are.
You horny bitch. I teased and in returned she rolled her tongue out. I sniggered at her.
Let's go devour mate. She growled with visible arousal in her voice. I raised an eyebrow at her. She is not getting any action today. If she thinks she'll get some action then she is in for a disappointment.
I let her fantasize about every position we'll let our mate mount us. Poor little wolf will be cranky tomorrow.
Inside the safety of our home, we both stripped wordlessly and got under the thick blanket. I got on top of Maverick and curled up in a ball, cuddling on his chest. Maverick circled his arms around me. I purred like a feline, rubbing my head on his chest.
"This is nice", Maverick whispered. This is the first time Maverick has talked about the thing he is feeling. In all honesty, it surprised me as much as it pleased me. It is a sign that he is willing to open up to me while it's hard for him to open up when all he had done since a young age is bottle up his emotions.
"This is heavenly", I mumbled, licking his chest playfully, a wolf's sign of affection. I wouldn't mention to anyone how smooth his skin is and how I'm jealous he has healthier skin than mine.
"It is", he agreed, pulling me up to kiss my brow. I craned my neck and placed a kiss on his cheeks with red cheeks. Why am I feeling shy all of a sudden?
My wolf awed at our interaction. To let me know she is happy she wiggled her tail, barking her happiness. My wolf is content and happy with these little things and so am I. Small moments matter the most right?
"Sapphire", he said. I hummed in acknowledgement.
"Do you want to move in with me?", he asked in a low voice. I heard the hesitate in his voice. I leaned up to look into his eyes.
"I'd love to", I replied, sure that I want to make a new life with my mate. It is time for me to let go of my pack. I still feel responsible for them but it us time I stop getting involved. Dad can handle the pack well.
"Now that you've started the topic", I started. "I want to ask if you'd like to return with me to my pack to meet my parents?". I want them to meet before I leave the pack for good. Maverick stiffened before exhaling a sigh.
"I will meet them", he replied. I squealed a little in excitement.
"I can't wait for you to meet my parents", I whispered. Maverick didn't reply so I let the silence surround us.
It was so comforting to lay like this in my mate's arms, having his scent sticking to me like perfume. I closed my eyes, smiling softly. I just wish this lasts forever. Not knowing what lays ahead of us made me want to cling to this moment even more.
In his presence, the sleep came fast and I slept peacefully till the sunrise.
When the sun rays fell on my face I groggily opened my eyes.
Maverick was still asleep so I took this time to admire him. The sunlight made his bronze skin the illusion of shine. His pink lips were slightly parted which I found adorable. His brows were furrowed a little bit like a baby. I awed at him, gawking at him with wide-opened eyes.
I whined when he suddenly turned away, his face hiding from my gaze. I pouted as it was the first time I got the chance to ogle at him this brazenly.
Then my eyes fell on the deep scar that started from his right shoulder to his lower back. There was another deep scar on his right side. My mouth parted in a silent gasp. It looked so painful. There must be some miracle that he survived this at that young age.
As if to lessen his pain my fingers traced the line. My mind flashed to an image of my nine-year-old mate lying in his blood, praying and begging for someone to save him, to lessen his pain. Tears fell from my eyes nonstop. My fingers seem useless to lessen his pain so I leaned down and replaced them with my lips. I kissed on his scars repeatedly.
The change in his breathing pattern indicated my mate is now awake and is aware of my action, though I didn't pay much attention to it. With my hand, I traced the scar on his side softly as I kissed the scar on his back.
Maverick breathed deeply and in the next second I found myself on my back, my legs spread with my knees bent and Maverick settled in between the gap of my legs.
"If you want to touch me so badly just say a word and you'll have something in your hand or your mouth, whatever you prefer", he growled huskily. Surprisingly his words didn't turn me on as I have a feeling he is trying to distract me from touching his wounds.
I hugged him and tugged him closer to take him off the guard. When his body thumped against me I locked my legs behind his waist. I got aware of the nakedness when his morning wood pressed snugly against my pussy lips. My pussy started heating up knowing her partner is close and with one thrust the monster can be impaled deep inside her.
"Oh, fuck", Maverick hissed finding his cock pressed tightly against my pussy. I ignored the pleasant feeling of his cock against my pussy and continued with my experiment. My fingers once again found the scar on his back. Maverick looked deeply into my eyes and breathed loudly. For the first time since I have met him, he looked helpless.
"It's okay, baby. This scar is proof that you are a survivor and I'm proud to be your mate", I assured him softly, for once not at all caring about anything but my mate. My conscience is not at a war with me any longer, which is a relief. I will start to act like a mate for him and will not let anyone drift us apart, not my values and especially not my older pack. Yes, I've accepted this pack as mine.
"Can you feel it?", Maverick asked rolling his hips. I hissed in pleasure.
"You just have to ruin the moment", I growled at him. He chuckled at me while I watched awestruck. My lips parted in a smile and I giggled along with him.
He looked at my smile and leaned down, brushing his nose against my cheeks.
"You know I love you, right?", he blurted out. He froze. I froze. My eyes widened as big as a saucer. His words struck me right at my heart, melting it in a puddle of goo.
Aww, he confessed. Finally.
Fun fact, in my language 'goo' means 💩 poop.😂
