Chapter 13

Heading back to the pack house, I shifted back where I threw my clothes, quickly redressing and going inside. It was late, I knew because it was dark outside, and has been for a few hours. I just wasn’t sure how late. Moving stealthily through the house, I went straight to my room, shutting the door before I even turned on the lights.

Surrounded by darkness, I rest my head against the door, realizing now how tired I was. From training this morning to running for hours, I was ready to pass out. Letting out a long sigh, I push myself away from the door, still not bothering to flip on the lights, I began to undress. I need a shower, and badly.

Walking into the bathroom, I flip the light on then turn the water nozzle all the way to scorching hot. Sighing once again, I was about to step in when a movement caught my eye. Spinning around, heart in my throat, I was about to attack when my mind registered who it was. Alex was standing in the door to the bathroom, eyes scanning over my body with a needy hunger.

A fire lit up inside of me, begging me to reach out and pull him to me. To let our lips connect and our bodies melt into one. To embrace one another and stay like that forever because it’s the best place I could ever be.

But before I could give into temptation, Tessa’s words rang through my mind.Your bed is so much better than mine!Scoffing mentally, my sexual desire died immediately, like a fire doused in water, replaced with a bit of anger and sadness. Crossing my arms to cover my breast, I ask. “What are you doing here? I didn’t hear you come in.”

Alex shook his head, trying to clear his mind of what he obviously wanted to do to me. He met my gaze before stepping closer. Grabbing my hands in his before I could pull them away. “Evelyn. Please give me a chance to explain. I know how it sounded. Believe me, it sounded bad, and I know what I’m about to say is the most cliché and typical thing a guy could say in a situation like this. But it isn’t how it seems, I promise.”

I could feel through the mate bond that he was being genuine. So I nodded for him to continue. “Tessa came to my room last night drunk. Stumbling and slurring her words, saying how I should take her as a mate and she didn’t understand why I didn’t like her. This was after I told her I didn’t feel anything for her.” He breathed out in frustration.

Rubbing the back of his neck he said. “I-I didn’t know what to do. After her ranting she puked on me, I’ve never been in that kind of situation before, so I tucked her into my bed, she passed out immediately, and that’s when I left. I got cleaned up and I just walked around the pack house for a while before coming to your room. I can’t explain it but I wanted to see you, to hear your voice again. It was all I could think about the rest of the evening.”

He turned to me again, bringing me to him as he wraps his arms around my waist. “Except, now I know it’s because you’re my mate. The light in my day and the only one I ever want in my bed, trust me. You’re the only one that I want to puke on me, although please don’t.” Grimacing at the thought, as his hands slid down to my hips as he pulled me closer.

I laughed at that. Part of me suspicious if that is all that happened between them, but the rest of me knew that he was telling the truth. The realistic and rational side of myself heavily outweighing the self-conscious part of myself telling me not to believe him. Closing the rest of the distance between us, I wrapped my arms around his neck. Pulling him closer to me, our lips brushing together as I spoke. “Okay. Thank you for explaining.” I kissed him softly. Before he could deepen the kiss, I leaned back, wearing a smirk. “So, want to get a shower with me?”

I feel like I gave in a little too easily, but everyone deserves a second chance, right? Plus, he is my mate, and I couldn’t deny or ignore the pull on my heart when he is around. Besides, technically he didn’t do anything wrong, he was just put in a difficult situation that when spoken out loud and without details, could be taken wrong.


His eyes widened before a grin slowly made its way to his face as he pushed me further away from him and quickly undressed. Laughing at his eagerness, I climbed into the steaming shower, letting the water fall down on me, relaxing my aching muscles. Alex stepped in behind me, his hands gliding over my hips, around to my stomach, gently guiding me back so that my back was pressed firmly against his front.

I could feel his length hardening against my back. His hands slowly moved upwards, caressing my breast and rolling my nipples through his fingers. My head fell back, and Alex took advantage of it by pressing his lips against my shoulder. Kissing a trail to my mark, before sucking and licking all around it. Letting out a gasp, I leaned further into him, my eyes closing as a pressure started in the pit of my stomach.

He feels so good against me, and he knew exactly how to pleasure me. A moan sounded throughout the shower as he continued his teasing, trailing one hand down my abdomen to the mound of nerves begging to be unwound. Starting in a slow circular motion, he pressed down, rubbing my sensitive spot. Grinding his hips into mine, I turned my head and captured his lips with my own in a heated kiss. Alex spun me around so he could push my back up against the shower wall, as our tongues pushed against each other.

I could feel his throbbing cock as it slid between my wet thighs, sending tingles straight through my core. Spreading my legs wider to allow him more access, I simultaneously ran my fingers up his shoulders to the back of his head to pull his hair gently, causing him to let out a groan of appreciation. Alex felt me shifting on my legs and without another thought, gripped the back of my thighs, lifting me up so I could wrap my legs around him.

My breast pressed flush against his chest, I kiss him urgently, needing to feel him everywhere. It took him all of a few seconds to plunge deep into my center, moaning into my mouth in ecstasy as he buried himself in me. Slow and steady, he thrusts his hips with mine, taking his time. He was teasing me, and while it felt damn good, I needed more.

Pushing my nails into his back, I breathed into his ear, before demanding, “Faster!” It took him a few seconds but he finally gave in to the temptation and pounded into me at an inhuman speed. Forcing my back against the shower wall again and again. The pleasure shooting through me, my eyes rolled to the back of my head as I moaned out over and over. Letting out one finally cry, I felt myself tighten around him, clenching as I came undone with him right there with me.


Breathing heavily, he gently set me down, kissing me passionately before grabbing my body wash. Alex began scrubbing my body, trailing kisses behind the loofah. This was perfect. He was perfect. Even though what we just done was extremely intimate, this was a whole different form of intimacy, making my fall deeper in love with him. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without him. Which reminds me.

Turning to face him, I pulled him closer, looking up into his captivating green eyes. “I want to announce our mating in the morning. I don’t want to wait.”
