Chapter Sixteen: Home at Last

They started on their journey home again. Laila sat on Park’s head as they traveled since his hearing was better than the others. Riley had offered her shoulder, but the twins wouldn’t let her go.

“How much further?” Laila asked with a yawn.

“Not much,” Park answered, “you can rest.”

She sighed, “being little is tiring.”

Park chuckled, “but you are so adorable.”

She smiled as best as she could, being a field mouse and all, then curled into a ball and drifted off to sleep.

“How is she holding up?” Paxton asked as he ran beside Park.

Park sighed, “very well, actually. Much better than I would if it were me.”

Paxton grumbled, “you know we may have to live with the fact that she’ll never change back.”

“Fucking Wizards,” Park swore up a blue streak making Paxton chuckle.

“What about the babies?” Park asked, pausing between curse words.

Paxton sighed, “hopefully, Vectore can save them.”


They finally made it home.

Paxton shifted and lifted their little mate off his brother’s head.

“Are we home?” Laila asked with a yawn.

“We are,” Paxton said with a smile. She was so cute when she did that.

Park shifted and walked over to his brother and mate. He slid his finger down her soft back, and she sighed as she leaned against his touch.

The others shifted to their human forms as they stopped in the twin’s back yard.

“Let’s go inside,” Park said as he took Laila from Paxton and headed for the cabin.

When they entered the living room, they froze.

Sitting on their couch, his arms across the back and a wide grin on his face was Vectore.

“About fucking time, you lot got home,” Vectore said.

“What are you doing here?” Paxton asked.

Vectore continued to grin. “I got a sensation that our little queen has discovered her second gift.”

The twins stared at the Shaman.

Vectore jumped to his feet when he saw the field mouse in Park’s hands.

’Well, Spirits do wonder,” Vectore said as he walked up to Park, his eyes on the mouse. “My queen,” he said with an even wider grin.

“You know it’s her?” Paxton asked.

“But of course,” Vectore said. “And she’s -just- perfect...

“The Dark Wizard transformed her,” Park said. “Can you help her?”

Vectore threw his head back and laughed.

“So, can you help me or not?” Laila asked with annoyance.

Vectore smiled at her tiny voice. “No, I cannot,” he said, lightly tapping her on the head with his finger.

Laila scowled at him, and the Shaman laughed again.

“Why not?!” Laila demanded.

“Because the Dark Wizard did not curse you.”

“What?” The twins said at the same time.

“But they sent hyenas and wolves after us,” Park said.

“Which we could have used your help with,” Paxton grumbled.

Vectore shook his head with a chuckle. “You did not need me. You had all you needed between your two human mate’s gifts and the loyalty of the coyotes. I was not needed. You need to be able to protect you and yours. I won’t always be close enough to help.”

“But what about me?” Laila asked.

Vectore looked at her. “This is not the work of the Dark Wizards.”

“If he didn’t do this to me, then who did?” Laila asked, confused.

Vectore leaned forward until his face was in hers, his nose touching her cute little black nose, making her whiskers twitch.

He grinned, “you did this to yourself.”

“What?” Everyone in the cabin asked at the same time.

“How did I do this?” Laila asked with a squeak.

Vectore chuckled and moved back from Laila. “I did say that I came here because I got the sensation that you had discovered your second gift.”

Laila’s little eyes opened wide, and the twins stared at her.

“Second gift?” Laila asked.

Vectore nodded, “and one I’ve never even heard of. But I guess it’s fitting for the Queen of the Animals.”

“So, what my gift is, is turning myself into a field mouse?”

Vectore chuckled. “What happened when you changed?”

“I was hiding from hyenas, but I heard two of them talking, they knew where I was and was coming after me. I remember thinking that I’m too human to be the Animal Queen.”

“And then what happened?” Vectore asked.

Laila looked at Park and Paxton. They were hanging on her every word. “Then I felt my bones pop and so much pain I thought the hyenas had gotten to me.”

Vectore nodded, “first shift can be the hardest.”

Park and Paxton looked at the Shaman.

“Does this mean she’s a shifter now?” Park asked.

Vectore smiled, “in a way.”

“Why a field mouse?” Laila asked.

“Because that was what you needed to become to hide from the hyenas. It was a protective instinct. It’s not the only thing you can shift into,” Vectore said.

“What?” Laila and the twins asked at the same time.

Vectore shrugged, “think about it. She’s the Queen of ALL Animals. So why would her shifting be limited?”

The twins laughed, and Paxton kissed Laila’s furry little head.

“Can you help me change back?” Laila asked.

“I can,” Vectore said with a nod, “I can also help you learn to control it and shift to whatever you want.”

If mice could smile...

“Set me down, Park.”

Park set Laila down in the middle of the living room floor.

“Now,” Vectore said, “all you need to do is think of your human form. Concentrate on that.”

Laila took a deep breath and closed her eyes. She thought about her human form, her long legs, her long brown hair, her arms and hands with opposable thumbs.

She opened her eyes. “Did it work?” She asked, but everyone and everything was still too big.

Damn. She thought.

What else could she think about to transform? The twins... She looked up at Park and Paxton. She thought about how much she loves them. How much they have each come to mean to her. How it feels to be in their arms. The love that flows from both men. The future they have to look forward to.

A bone popped in her small body, she was ready for it this time. The pain was less but still there. Soon she sat on the floor in her human form.

The twins rushed to their mate and held her.

“I’m so glad you’re back,” Park said as he kissed her cheek. “I mean, you were adorable as a mouse, but this is who you are.”

Laila smiled as she hugged both her mates.

“So, did that work?” Vectore asked, looking at her.

She looked up at him and shook his head. “I thought about my human form, but nothing happened.”

Vectore shrugged, “everyone is different.”

“What did you think about?” Paxton asked.

She smiled at him. “You mean who?”

Paxton’s eyes blinked at her.

She chuckled. She loves her bears so much. “I thought of the two of you.”


“Can we take a break?” Laila begged as she stood in front of Vectore, leaned over with her hands against her knees breathing heavily.

Vectore smiled, “you’re the one who wanted to start off big.”

She threw up her hands. “Please.”

He chuckled, “ten minutes.”

She collapsed to the ground.

“How is she doing?” Park asked as he joined them.

Vectore smiled, “very well, actually.”

Laila snorted, “I haven’t even been able to shift into the mouse again.”

“You’ll get there,” Park said encouragingly, “we have faith in you.”

She smiled up at him.

“Let us know when you’re done for the day. We would like some time with our mate.”

Laila looked at Vectore.

Vectore sighed heavily. “Go,” he said, motioning for her to follow Park.

Laila jumped to her feet and ran into Park’s arms.

Park kissed her forehead, then turned with her and walked away from the cabin.

“But tomorrow, we’re doing what I think you should work on!” Vectore called out to her.

She waved her hand at him as a... Fine, whatever.

Vectore smiled then walked into the cabin.

“What are we doing?” Laila asked as Park walked her towards the woods.

“You’ll see,” he said with a smile.

They soon walked into a clearing that had obviously been made by man.

Or rather, bear. She thought when she saw Paxton’s bear push over a tree.

“You got her,” Paxton said when he noticed them.

Laila ran over to Paxton and wrapped her arms around his neck. He sniffed her hair, and she chuckled when he blew air through his nose and made her hair fly behind her.

“You smell good.”

“What are you guys doing here?” She asked as she took a step back.

“Clearing trees,” Paxton said.

“Duh,” she said, then looked at Park.

“We have plans for this area,” Park said.

Laila huffed, “fine, don’t tell me.”

Park chuckled and pulled her into his arms. “This isn’t what we brought you here for.”

“No?” She asked with a smile.

“You’ve been so tired lately after your training with Vectore,” Park said, lightly kissing her lips.

She moaned as she wrapped her arms around his neck.

Paxton shifted and came up behind her. “We miss your body,” he growled into her ear.

She groaned as Paxton turned her from Park and kissed her.

Park started stripping off his clothes as Paxton continued kissing her then pulled her from Paxton so he could remove his clothes as well.

“Mmm,” Laila moaned, “I love the feel of your skin against me.”

Park chuckled, “you’re still clothed.”

She pulled away from him and pulled off her shirt. Paxton paused with his own clothes and watched Laila strip to her bra and panties.

“Holy fuck,” Paxton grumbled then quickly finished stripping off his clothes.

Park helped Laila out of her bra and panties then lifted her off her feet. Laila automatically wrapped her legs around his hips.

“You’re so beautiful,” Park said then kissed her.

She moaned as she held onto him and melted into his kiss.

Park lifted her ass into the air then slid her down onto his shaft, impaling her. She cried out when he entered her.

“Fuck, you’re still so damn tight,” Park said with a growl.

Paxton found the blanket they had brought with them and laid it out on the ground.

Park fell to his knees on the blanket, then laid Laila onto her back without leaving her warmth. They moved together to a rhythm only they could hear.

“Park!” She cried out when her orgasm exploded behind her eyelids.

“Fuck yes,” Park said with a loud groan when she tightened around his cock.

“More,” she begged.

He chuckled as he lifted her right leg up over his shoulder, then turned his hips and found her g-spot.

She screamed when he hit it so hard, they moved up the blanket.

“Oh, hell, yes,” she said with a satisfied moan.

Park groaned as he moved in and out of her. His cock hitting her spot, again and again, making her pussy vibrate around his dick. He leaned his head against her ankle and closed his eyes. She was so incredible and all theirs.

When he opened his eyes, she was staring up at him, her eyes full of lust, love, and wonder.

He smiled at her. “Laila,” he said with a sexy as fuck whisper, making her cum all over his cock.

“Oh God, Park.”

He let her leg down, then leaned over her amazing body and kissed her.

“I love you,” he whispered against her lips.

She smiled, “I love you too.”

Park groaned as he slid in and out a few more times, then hollered when he exploded deep inside her hot pussy.

“Park,” she groaned as her own orgasm took her breath away.

Park laid on top of her, breathing heavily. She wrapped her arms and legs around him and held him tight.

“I love you so much,” she cried.

Park pulled back and looked at her, then wiped a tear from her cheek. “Don’t cry.”

She chuckled, “don’t worry, they’re happy tears.”

“Move it,” Paxton said as he shoved his brother over. “Didn’t your mother teach you to share?”

Park grunted, and Laila chuckled.

“We have the same mother,” Park grumbled as he moved off Laila.

“Yeah, and she always said, ’Share with your brother,” Paxton said with a grin, then looked down at Laila and she smiled up at him.

“As good as you look lying there, sweets, you know what I want,” he said with a grin.

Laila nodded then grinned as she rolled over and got onto her hands and knees her ass in the air.

Paxton groaned at the sight of her ass in the air waiting for him. “Fuck,” he mumbled then slapped her ass.

She squealed, which made him do it again. She wiggled her ass at him, and he grunted.

“Stay still, woman.”

Laila stopped wiggling as Paxton moved up behind her. He grabbed hold of her hips and yanked her back onto his cock. She cried out when he rammed into her.

“Holy fucking shit,” Paxton groaned.

Laila whimpered. Both brothers were so amazing and so different.

Paxton squeezed her hips then started moving inside her. He slammed into her so hard she fell forward, her arms out in front of her, her breasts pinned to the blanket, yet he didn’t stop. He continued to pound into her from behind, making them both cry out.

It didn’t take long to build her orgasm, and when it hit, she screamed, and he tightened his grip on her hips to keep her from pushing him out when her pussy strangled his cock.

“Fucking hell, Laila,” Paxton said with a groan.

“Please,” she begged.

Paxton knew what she wanted, and he was going to give it to her. He wrapped his arms around her stomach and held onto her as he continued to ram into her deep and hard.

“Fuck, yes,” he groaned.

Another orgasm hit Laila, blinding her as she cried out her mate’s name.

Paxton grunted as his own orgasm took hold of him, and he called out her name as he exploded deep inside her.

Exhausted, he laid over her back and tried to catch his breath.

Park laid on the blanket beside them, and Paxton slowly removed himself from their mate. Park pulled Laila down next to him and held her to his side. She laid her leg over his and closed her eyes as her head rested in the crook of his arm.

Paxton laid behind her and breathed in her scent. “I love you,” he whispered against her bare shoulder.

She sighed contentedly. “I love you too,” she whispered, then fell fast asleep.
