Marry-Beth watched as Sebastian hit the wannabe cockblocker over the head with his guitar and laughed with her friends. Allora wrapped her arms around her and laid her head on her shoulder.
“I know that’s what you want,” Allora whispered.
Marry-Beth looked at her fiancée. “What is?” She asked.
Allora looked up at her mate. “A Fated Mate, a man to protect you.”
Marry-Beth closed her eyes. Yes, she wanted a Fated Mate. She has wanted one since Dustin showed up at the bar with Sharissa. But she’s happy. She has her mate; she needs nothing else. She opened her eyes and smiled down at Allora.
“I have what I want,” she said, then leaned forward and kissed her mate on the lips.
Allora sighed as she kissed her back.
“Okay, you two, I have said it before, and I’ll say it again. Get a fucking room.”
Marry-Beth raised her head from the kiss and glared at her brother.
Akan grinned at his sister.
Music started playing again, and Marry-Beth looked up at the band who were continuing without their leader.
“The asshole finally has his mate,” Dustin said with a grin.
“Who’s left?” Sharissa asked.
“No one I know of,” Dylan said as he wrapped his arms around his mate.
“What about Akan?” Drezden asked.
Everyone at the table laughed.
“Do you really think there’s someone out there for this dipshit?” Dominic asked as he tapped Akan on the top of his head.
“Hey,” Akan glowered as he pushed Dominic’s hand away.
“There isn’t a woman alive who can put up with my brother,” Marry-Beth said with a grin.
“What about Marry-Beth?” Sharissa asked as she looked at their old friend.
Marry-Beth snorted, “I have my mate,” she said as she squeezed Allora.
Sharissa smiled at the two women. “Yes. But I think there’s more for you.”
“Nah. Allora is all I need,” Marry-Beth said, then kissed Allora.
When the kiss ended, Marry-Beth smiled into her mate’s eyes. But Allora could see the longing in her mate’s beautiful eyes.
“How long are we staying here?” Allora asked as she set her purse on the table inside their hotel room.
“I’m not sure,” Marry-Beth said as she headed for the bathroom.
Allora frowned as she watched her mate. She loves the woman more then she has ever loved anyone in her life. And she hated seeing her like this. A smile spread across her face when a thought came to mind. She walked to the closet and pulled out their special suitcase.
Marry-Beth looked at herself in the mirror. How is she not special in the eyes of the Goddesses? She knows it was them who had saved her when she was a cub. It had to of been them. How else had she stayed hidden from the hunters inside that prickly bush, and not come out with a single scratch?
“Marry-Beth, are you coming out?”
Marry-Beth took a deep breath then opened the bedroom door. When she walked into the hotel room, what she found on the bed had her heart racing and her pussy pulsing.
Allora laid on the bed, completely naked, Marry-Beth’s favorite strap on in place, making Marry-Beth lick her lips.
“Come and get it,” Allora said as she stroked the long shaft of the dildo.
Marry-Beth grinned as she pulled her clothes off a piece at a time. She knows how much that tormented her beautiful mate.
Allora licked her lips as she watched Marry-Beth strip one piece of clothing off at a time. She continued to stroke the dildo as she watched her mate.
“Allora,” Marry-Beth said once the last of her clothes were on the floor.
“Come here,” Allora said as she held her arms open to her fiancée.
Marry-Beth jumped onto the bed, which made Allora giggle. Marry-Beth covered her mate’s mouth with her own and pressed her down into the bed.
“You’re a very naughty girl,” Marry-Beth said as she kissed down Allora’s body.
Allora moaned when Marry-Beth nipped at her nipple.
“Please,” Allora begged.
Marry-Beth grinned as she moved up Allora’s body. She straddled her hips, then positioned the dildo at her opening and slid down it, impaling herself with the thick rubber.
“Fuck, yes,” Marry-Beth said with a groan once the dildo was deep inside her throbbing pussy.
“You are so beautiful,” Allora said as she looked up at her mate. “I love you.”
Marry-Beth smiled as she leaned down and kissed her mate.
Allora took hold of Marry-Beth’s hips and pulled her up the dildo, then slammed her back down on it.
“FUCK!” Marry-Beth screamed.
Allora chuckled. “Like that, my love?”
Marry-Beth nodded, and Allora did it again.
“You’re mine, Marry-Beth. Don’t ever forget that.”
Marry-Beth groaned, “and you are mine, Allora. Always and forever.”
Allora sighed, “always and forever.”
“Can you feel it too?” Marry-Beth asked as she looked into her mate’s eyes.
Allora shrugged, “a little.”
Marry-Beth chuckled, “a little isn’t enough,” she said, then leaned forward and placed her hands on the headboard. She lifted herself off the dildo, then slammed herself back down onto it.
“Ohmigod,” Allora breathed with a moan.
Marry-Beth grinned. “Can you feel it now?”
“Oh, yes,” Allora said as she closed her eyes.
“Open your eyes, love.”
Allora opened her eyes and looked up at Marry-Beth. They smiled at each other as Marry-Beth picked up speed, giving them both incredible pleasures.
The strap on was made to pleasure both women. The dildo penetrated Marry-Beth to the brink of going insane. The piece connected to Allora rubbed against her clit, giving her enough pleasure, her eyes rolled to the back of her head.
“I’m going to cum,” Allora cried out.
“Yes, baby, cum with me,” Marry-Beth panted.
Allora squeezed Marry-Beth’s hips as they moved together, giving each other the pleasure they both sought.
“Marry-Beth!” Allora screamed as her body convulsed with her orgasm.
“Oh, God,” Marry-Beth breathed, knowing she had just given her mate, unbelievable pleasure. When her own orgasm had her vibrating above her mate, Allora moved her hands up to Marry-Beth’s head and pulled her down to kiss her ripe lips.
“Can you go again?” Allora asked once their heartbeats returned to normal.
Marry-Beth chuckled, “you know I can. This time I want you on top.”
“Why aren’t we going to The Dive?” Allora asked as she and Marry-Beth walked down the sidewalk on the other side of town from the bar their friends own.
“Because I want to try something new. And I don’t want to deal with seeing all those Fated Mates right now.”
Allora frowned. It’s because of her that Marry-Beth will never have a Fated Mate. If they hadn’t met and fallen in love, then she’d be free to find her Fated Mate.
Marry-Beth stopped and turned to her fiancée. “Allora, you know I can feel you.”
Allora snorted, and Marry-Beth grunted.
“Look. You’re not the reason I don’t have a Fated Mate like my friends. The fact that I found you is not what has kept me from my Fated Mate. The fact that I’m not a Fated Mate has kept me from becoming a Fated Mate.”
“But you’d make a perfect Fated Mate,” Allora said with a frown.
Marry-Beth sighed as she pulled her mate into her arms. “I love you.”
Allora nodded, “I know. But if you find him, I will step back and let him have you…” She didn’t get to finish what she was saying as Marry-Beth captured her mouth in a hot kiss.
When they separated from the kiss, they were both breathing heavily.
“Allora, I love you. Even if I found my Fated Mate tonight, that would never change.”
Allora wiped at a tear as it slid down her cheek. “But he will be what the Goddesses wanted for you…”
“Screw the Goddesses!” Marry-Beth shouted. “I love you, Allora. That will never change.”
Allora sniffled. “But what if he won’t accept both of us?”
Marry-Beth grinned, “then he’s not what I expected him to be.”
Allora snorted, “but the Goddesses…”
Marry-Beth stopped her with another kiss. This time when she lifted her head, she leaned her forehead against her mate’s.
“I love you, Allora. Nothing and no one will take that from us. Not even a Fated Mate’s bond. Do you understand me?”
Allora nodded, and Marry-Beth pecked her lips.
“Now, let’s check out this club,” she said as she pointed to the club they had stopped in front of.
“There you two are.”
Marry-Beth and Allora looked up as Akan sat in the booth across from them.
“Where have you been?” Marry-Beth asked.
Akan snorted, “I went to The Dive, thinking I’d find you two there. There is some crazy ass shit going on there right now.”
“I bet,” Allora said with a chuckle.
“No, seriously. There was this storm inside the building, and people appeared out of nowhere. The Fated Mates have some funky ass shit going on.”
“Do you think we should see what’s going on?” Allora asked as she looked at her mate.
Marry-Beth shook her head. “Nah, if they need us, they know our number. Besides, we’re not Fated Mates.”
“How did you find us?” Allora asked Akan.
Akan grinned, “I followed my nose,” he said as he pointed to his nose, “it will always lead me to my stinky sister.”
Marry-Beth shoved her brother’s arm off the table, making him almost smack his face.
“You’re an ass,” Marry-Beth grumbled.
Akan grinned, “but you love me, anyway.”
Marry-Beth snorted, “so, you think.”
“Let’s dance,” Allora said as she gave her mate a push off the booth seat.
“Watch the booth,” Marry-Beth told her brother as she stood and helped Allora out of the booth.
Akan chuckled as he watched his sister and her fiancée head to the dance floor. He knows how much his sister wants to be a part of her friend’s Fated Mate’s Club. But how can a woman impregnate another woman? He understands the Goddess’s thinking, but can’t they bend the rule a little, for his big sister?
With a shake of his head, he stood and headed for the bar. His sister has a better chance of being a Fated Mate then he does. How depressing.
Marry-Beth and Allora danced for hours before they finally headed back to their booth, which was now occupied by five large men.
“Let’s find another booth,” Allora whispered into Marry-Beth’s ear.
Marry-Beth snorted, “should have known my brother couldn’t hold onto the booth for long.”
Allora giggled, “we did dance for over three hours, my love.”
Marry-Beth grinned as she looked at Allora. “I can’t help it. I love having you in my arms.”
Allora grinned as she wrapped her arms around her mate.
“Hey, you two finally taking a break?” Akan asked as he walked up behind them.
Marry-Beth turned to her brother. “What happened to watching the booth?”
Akan shrugged, “I went to the bathroom and came back to find five huge men at the table.”
Marry-Beth snorted, “you’re pathetic.”
“Marry-Beth,” Allora whispered.
Marry-Beth looked at Allora. “What is it, love?”
“I can smell you,” Allora whispered.
“What?” Marry-Beth asked as she sniffed her armpit.
Allora held back a chuckle as she watched her mate sniff under her arms.
“We need to get you out of here,” Akan said as he took hold of his sister’s arm, “I knew they had something in store for you,” he said with a grin.
Marry-Beth blinked at her brother and mate. “What are you two talking about?”
“Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you stink.” Akan said as he wrinkled his nose.
Allora whimpered, “she smells like heaven.”
Marry-Beth looked at Allora again. “What’s going on?”
“You’ve been activated, dear sister,” Akan said as he took hold of her hand, “and we’re getting you out of here before one of those Bear Shifters rapes you.”
Marry-Beth blinked as her brother dragged her to the door.
“Wait!” Allora practically screamed.
Marry-Beth stopped and pulled on her hand, but her stubborn brother wouldn’t let her go. “What the hell are you talking about?!” She demanded.
Allora caught up to them and stood in front of her mate. Who will no longer be hers. “Marry-Beth,” she whispered, “you’re a Fated Mate, and you’ve been activated.”
Marry-Beth blinked at her mate. “How…how do you know?”
Allora sniffled as she wiped a tear from her cheek.
“Because we can smell you, sister of mine,” Akan said as he watched the two women before him. He can see that Allora is already releasing Marry-Beth, and it’s tearing her apart. If only his sister was a regular Shifter.
“Allora,” Marry-Beth whispered as she placed her hand against her mate’s cheek, “don’t cry, my love.”
“B…but you belong to someone else,” Allora said with a sniffle.
Marry-Beth pulled her mate against her with the hand her brother wasn’t holding. “I love you, Allora. I told you, nothing will come between that.”
Allora shook her head. “No. You can’t go against the Goddesses.”
Marry-Beth snorted. “Why would they give me you, only to take you away from me?”
Allora chuckled, “we all know that the Goddesses are crazy.”
“Speaking of crazy, I think the Bear Shifters have gotten a whiff of sister’s stink.”
“Do I smell that bad?” Marry-Beth asked as she looked at her brother.
Akan wrinkled his nose. “Really bad.”
“No, she doesn’t,” Allora said as she glared at Akan.
Akan wrinkled his nose. “She does to me.”
“That’s because she’s your sister. Do you think the Goddesses would make siblings want to fuck each other?”
Marry-Beth chuckled at the look on her brother’s face.
“We need to get out of here.” Akan said as he pulled on his sister again.
Allora pulled on Marry-Beth’s other hand, keeping Akan from pulling them outside.
Akan stared at his sister’s mate. He would think she would want to get as far away from here as possible to protect her mate.
Allora shook her head at Akan. “She needs to stay here, Akan.”
“This may be a human bar, Allora. But those big men who took our table. They’re all big, strong, Bear Shifters. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a Fated Mate, I can die…”
“It’s a mixture of Shifters in here, Akan. And one of them is Marry-Beth’s mate.”
The siblings stared at Allora.
“How do you know?” Akan asked.
“Because he saw her. That’s what activated her. Don’t you remember what the other Fated Mates have told us about activation? All her mate has to do is look at her, and she’s activated. Once they look into each other’s eyes, she will go insane with lust.”
Marry-Beth blinked. She does feel horny.
“Shit,” Akan cursed because Allora was right. His sister’s mate must be in here, somewhere.
