“Where are we going? I thought we’re hanging out?” Amara’s eyes widened as we drove past the bar. “We are, but you can’t study there, it’s too noisy,” I said smirking. She kept looking at me wondering where we’re supposed to be going and it was a lot of fun knowing that she doesn’t have a clue. The thing is ever since my parents found out about her, they've been begging me to take her home and meet them. Of course, there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to freak her out, but a huge part of me wants her to feel comfortable with everyone as early as now so that I can cross out another hurdle and move on to the unending to-do list.
“So, are you going to tell me, where we’re going or?” she asked again. “Home,” I said. “Home?” she asked, panic evident in her tone. I reached out to intertwine our fingers and gave her a reassuring smile. “Yeah, my room is bigger than my office, naturally, and it’s quieter. Definitely much better for studying,” Thankfully she didn’t protest and just looked out the window. That’s one of the many things I like about her. Give her the answer she needs as clearly as you can and she won’t question your decision. Give her a vague one, well, you’ll end up explaining for hours.
I kissed her hand then placed it on top of my thigh which is somewhat a bad idea because the wolf inside me went nuts. It wants nothing more than to mark her and officially mate with her which I have no problems with, except for the slight issue that Amara doesn’t have any idea that we’re more than mythical creatures created by human imagination. I don’t know how I’m going to tell her or show her what I am and it scares the living lights out of me, so I have to figure this out and act fast. I’m sure other wolves can slightly smell my scent on her and that puts her in a lot of danger.
Amara’s mouth hung open and her eyes were as big as an owl’s when we pulled in front of my house. “Holy shit! Dakota wasn’t kidding when she said you all live in a huge house.” I chuckled at her words. She looked at me with an arched brow and said, “this isn’t a house, it’s a mall.” I shook my head at her assessment and led her inside the house. I was just waiting for someone to yell surprise when we got in. Everyone was either standing in the hallway or have their heads poking out of the living room. I rolled my eyes at them and shook my head in disapproval. Amara hid behind me and smiled at everyone shyly and I swore I heard someone coo.
I cleared my throat and mind linked everyone. “Stop making this awkward you’re going to scare her away.” I pulled her closer to my side wrapping my arm around her waist. “This is Amara. Amara, this is everyone. Oh and this is my mom and my dad,” I said pointing at my parents. They both approached cautiously as if she’s a fragile china doll and it almost made me laugh. My mom extended her arms to give her a hug. “Hello, dear! I’m Sumire, this is my husband Damien.” My father then extended his hand to shake Amara’s. “Hello, sweetheart. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” She took my father’s hand in hers and shook it gently. “I’m Amara, I hope I’m not intruding.” I went on introducing her to Wyatt’s family first then Hunter’s before pulling her upstairs to my room.
“I’m sorry about that. Me dating and bringing someone to meet them isn’t a normal thing.” I told her after closing the door. “It’s alright,” she answered blushing hard. She then went on checking every corner of my room and when her curiosity was satisfied, she placed her school stuff on the carpet. “I like studying on the floor so I hope you don’t mind.” She said, lying on her stomach and my pulse quickened at the sight of her. She looked at me questioningly and gestured for me to join her on the floor. I don’t know how far I can control myself, so I sat beside her instead. Yeah, now that we’re here. I’m thinking that this is a bad idea.
After an hour, she was down to a single homework, so we took a break from all the studying and arguing about which answer is correct. We were still seated on the floor, our backs pressed to the foot of my bed having conversations about all sorts of topics. I don’t know who moved first, but we’re suddenly on a full make-out session with her legs on either side of my thighs. I pulled her closer to me and deepened the kiss making her moan. When she started grinding a bit, I smelled her arousal and it drove me insane. I want her so badly, but I have to wait a little longer at least until I’m able to tell her everything she needs to know.
It took everything I had to slow down the kiss and when she broke the contact she giggled breathily. “I thought we’re doing homework?” I smiled at her question and shook my head at her. “That's what I also thought, but then you started kissing me.” She smacked my arm playfully and said, “I did no such thing. You started it!” I snaked my hand at the back of her head and pulled her in for another kiss. We made out for a few minutes more until she decided to stop and continue with school work which made me groan because I wanted to keep going. Two problems in Math later, Wyatt used mind link to let me know that three rouges were spotted entering the border.
I shoot up to my feet which startled Amara. "What's wrong?" I shook my head and gave her a wide smile so she won't suspect that there's something wrong. "Nothing, I just forgot to sign something at the bar which is urgent, so I need to head there for a bit." She slowly stood in front of me and said, "Okay, I'll go with you." Shit! I hope she believes my excuse otherwise I won't be able to head out. "You don't have to, I'll be quick. Stay here and I'll come back as soon as I can okay?" Thank god, she didn't fight me on this and just nodded her head. I leaned down to give her a quick kiss and ran as quickly as I can out of the house to hunt the rogues down.
