I ran up to Alaric and wrapped my arms around him.
“I’m soaked in blood kitten” he said, holding his arms out trying to keep my clothes clean. I squeezed his waist in response.
“I don’t care” I mumbled in to his hard chest. He chuckled, and swept me up in his arms. I let out a squeal of surprise. He started walking inside.
“Fine! Now that you’re dirty, I better clean up my mess” he said as he carried me in to his room.
He kicked open the door to the bathroom and put me down on the counter, before reaching in to the shower to turn on the water.
I grabbed his shirt and pulled it over his head. His mouth met mine in a desperate kiss as he slid his bloody hands under my top. I moaned when his fingertips found my nipples. I broke the kiss for a second to let him pull the top over my head. Heat rushed to my core as I felt his hard bulge against my thigh. I dragged my nails lightly down his chest, over his abs until I reached the lining of his pants. He groaned when I slipped my fingers underneath it and touched the head of his swollen member. He picked me up and slid off my pants. I wrapped my legs around his waist and rubbed my aching sex against him. Still holding me up with one hand, he pushed down his own pants and stepped in to the shower. He pressed me against the cold tile wall, devouring my mouth as his hand slid down my side.
She wrapped her arms around my neck as I kissed down her throat. I found her wet folds with my hand and started circling her throbbing clit. Her fingers curled into my hair and pulled my head back up to her lips. My cock was so hard it was aching. I grabbed it and lightly tapped it against her clit a few times before letting it glide down to her soaked entrance. She circled her hips slowly, rubbing the head of my cock, making it twitch. I pressed myself inside her tight walls, moaning in unison with her as I filled her to the core.
“More” she whispered in my ear. I started thrusting in to her, as she grabbed my shoulders, holding on for dear life. I move one hand to her clit, and rubbed it fast before pressing down. Her walls contracted around my cock as he bucked wildly. I held still for a few seconds, enjoying the free ride. When she was done, I started slamming in to her vigorously. Her limp arms started grabbing at my back again.
“Oh fuck, oh fuck” she moaned. Just as I was about to cum, I tilted my hips, pressed my pubic bone against her clit and gyrated in to her. She cried out just as I let myself go, filling her up with my cream. We were both panting, our faces flushed and our bodies melted together. I held her there until our breaths were back to normal.
“You OK?” I asked her. She was still limp in my arms.
“Oh my Goddess, yes!” she replied, letting out a short laugh.
“How do you know exactly what I like, when even I don’t know?” she asked, dumbfounded. I let her feet down to the floor.
“I pay attention” I shrugged, grabbing the shower gel.
“Now, step in to the water so I can clean up my mess” I said, smirking.
“So when are we leaving?” she asked as she put on a sweater.
“I have one last thing I need to do.” I replied from my seat on the bed.
“What’s that?” she asked as she walked over to me.
“I want to talk to Kade.” I said, taking her hand and pulling her to me.
“OK, should I start packing then?” she asked as she sat down on my lap.
“Good idea. Why don’t you ask Galina to help you. I’ll come over when I’m done.” I said, hugging her.
“OK, sounds good. I’ll see you later then.” she said and walked to the door.
“I love you” I called after her. She whipped around, beaming.
“I love you too Alaric!”
I chuckled to myself, wondering what I had done to deserve a mate like her. I mind-linked Marcelo, telling him to bring Kade and meet me in the cafeteria.
I got myself a coffee and sat down at one of the tables. The place was empty, which was good, considering the conversation that was about to happen, would be emotional.
Ten minutes later they walked in.
“Hey Kade, how are you?” I asked. The cut on his face was covered with bandages, lightly tinted red in the center, which I found odd.
“Um, I’m OK.” Kade replied sheepishly. I looked up at Marcelo, who frowned.
“The reason he’s not healing as normal, is because there was wolfsbane in the wound. We suspect the knife was laced with it.” Marcelo said.
“It will heal in time, but unfortunately it will leave a nasty scar.” he added.
We all stayed quiet for a few seconds. I felt bad for Kade. He was too young to look this broken. Besides the scar, his face was melancholic.
“Kade, you said you would tell me how you ended up with Virion. Are you ready now?” I asked gently. He looked up at me.
“Yes.” he said, scrunching his face for a second, before taking a deep breath.
“Five years ago my pack was slaughtered. I was the only survivor. I hid in a woodshed. I roamed the nearby forest for a week, until Virion found me. He told me he’d killed the rogues that murdered my pack, so I trusted him.” he took another heavy breath before continuing.
“However it turned out it was his rogues that had done it. But I had nowhere to go, so I stayed. He used my fathers information to get a credit card and a burner phone. I was so desperate for his approval, and terrified of his punishments, that I agreed to everything he demanded” he looked crestfallen.
“Now that I’m finally free, I don’t know where to go. I don’t want to be a rogue, but I have no one. My family is dead, I’m all alone.” tears escaped his eyes and ran down his cheek. My heart twisted in pain for him.
I looked over at Marcelo, who nodded. He knew what I was about to do.
“Kade.” I said, as softly as I could. He hid his face in his palms.
“Kade.” I said again, gently putting my hand on his arm and pushing it away from his face. He looked at me, sobbing.
“You saved Jade, without knowing who she was. You risked your own life to help her. Without you, I would have lost my mate, my Luna. I owe you more then I can ever repay.” I said, as my own eyes starting watering. I pressed my eyes closed and swallowed hard.
“I want you to join my pack.” I blurted out. Kade’s jaw hit the floor. He stared at me for a good minute before Marcelo nudged him back to reality. His eyes darted back and forth between mine and Marcelo’s.
“What?” he exclaimed, his voice breaking.
“Please, join my pack.” I repeated, gently squeezing his arm. He started heaving for breath, tears poring out of his eyes as he sobbed uncontrollably. He grabbed my arm back as he nodded his head rapidly, trying to smile through his tears. I walked over to him and pulled him up from his seat and gave him a warm hug. This poor kid had been through hell and back. He deserved a place to feel safe, to call home.
“I need to go to Jade’s and help her pack, you wanna come?” I asked him.
“Yes Alpha, of course!” he said.
“Alaric is fine.” I said grinning. He took another deep breath and smiled.
“OK Alaric. Thank you. I… I don’t know what to say. I… what...” he sighed.
“Thank you, I promise you won’t regret this, I’ll do whatever you want!”
“No Kade. You will do whatever YOU want, and grow up to be the best man, best wolf you can be, for YOU. That’s all I want.” I stated. He started tearing up again, but quickly wiped the tears away.
“Yes Alaric, I won’t let you down.” he replied suppressing a smile.
When we got to Jade’s house, music was blasting through the open door. I could hear them singing and laughing as we walked in to the hall.
“Hello?” I shouted. The music was cut off.
“You guys need help?” I asked as I leaned up against the door frame.
“We’re almost done.” Jade said as she came out of the kitchen.
“Oh, Hi Kade! How are you?” she asked carefully.
“I’m OK” he replied, a heartwarming smile erupting on his bandaged face.
“He’s coming with us” I said, suppressing a small grin. Jade looked up at me.
“Really?” she said, her eyes glistening. I shrugged, trying to remain collected. “That’s amazing news!” she said, beaming at us both. She grabbed my hand and pulled me outside to the four, rather small boxes on the front lawn.
My eyebrows arched in confusion.
“Where’s the rest?”
“That’s it. I’m leaving the furniture and everything I don’t need.” I said as I looked up at the house that had been my home for the last three years. Now this house would be given to someone else, someone that needed it.
“OK then, Kade load ’em up!” Alaric said. Kade straightened up, gave him a salute and started loading the truck.
Galina came outside, just as Gregory and Marcelo came up to the house. This is it. I’m leaving the New Moon pack. Galina wrapped her arms around me in a tight embrace. I felt my heart twist with the knowledge that I would be leaving her behind. What would my life have been like without her. I shook the thoughts from my head. Thank the Goddess I won’t ever know the answer to that question.
“I am so happy for you, I can’t even put it in to words.” she said.
“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. You are amazing. Never change!” I replied, feeling tears slipping down my cheeks.
“We’re both gonna be Luna’s Jade, how sick is that!” she huffed.
“Ha! You’ll be perfect!” I said, and I meant it. She was made for that role.
“I agree” Gregory said as he walked up to her and kissed her head.
“And so will you, don’t stress it” Alaric added with a casual grin.
“OK can we just go now, before I start crying as well?” Marcelo said, turning and walking towards the car. We all hugged one last time, and promised to visit each other.
Alaric and I were in his truck, while Marcelo, Kade and the rest of the crew were in an SUV. I stared back at my friends as they became smaller and smaller. Alaric grabbed my hand and squeezed.
“You OK?” he asked, his brows furrowed.
“Yes, I am. I ready to start this new chapter in my life.” I said as I turned forward, looking at the road ahead.
