All Yours

Cole

Everything hurts as I pull my eyes open. I feel like I'm dreaming. Her sweet smell is everywhere.

When I look down, she's curled into my chest. I'm not sure how long she's been asleep but there are still streaks from tears on her cheeks.

"Luci," I try to whisper but it comes out as a rough cough.

She jolts up, looking at me with wide eyes.

"Cole!" Her voice cracks and she buries her face in my neck.

"What are you doing here?"

"You're hurt! I had to come take care of you."

The door clicks open behind the privacy curtain and I feel Elijah and Sorsha quietly entering the room.

I take a painful breath, "If you want to choose Jordan, I understand. I know he knows how to treat you like you deserve... I want you to be happy. If you think he would make you..."

I'm cut off by the angry growl and matching scowl on her face.

"Jordan?" disgust is clear in her voice, "why would you think I want him?"

"You trained with him yesterday... you guys..."

Elijah growls angrily, "she trained with me, jackass."

We sit in silence for a minute.

"Please tell me you didn't run out and get yourself injured because you thought she was back home with Jordan," Elijah's fuming.

The look on Lucienne's face is equal parts horror and anger.

"That's not why, right, Cole?" She asks quietly.

I don't know what to say. Elijah stands angrily and pulls Sorsha with him. "I'll be back later. I need to calm down before I fucking kill you myself."

When we're alone again a tear falls down her cheek.
"I want you, Cole. Why do you think I would choose someone else? You're my mate, you're the one I've been waiting for all this time. How can you possibly think that now that I've found you, I'm just going to choose someone else?"
Fuck, I guess we're doing this now.

"I've done things that you would hate me for."

"Try me," her voice is low and irritated.

"There have been... a lot of women, Luc... way more than I'm proud of. After I gave up on finding you... I made a lot of mistakes."

"Do you have a woman now?"

"What, like a girlfriend? No, I have never had a girlfriend. They were more like..."

"Fuck buddies," she sighs.

"Yes."

"Is that it?"

Her calmness is rattling me. I thought she would yell and cry, I thought she would be angry.

"Being a warrior... it's complicated... sometimes, in order to save a pack we have to make some calls, to do some things that other wolves wouldn't do. We can't show mercy, we can't hesitate."

"Cole, are you talking about killing people?"

I'm surprised by her bluntness.

"I killed four wolves on this mission alone."

"Does Elijah know that this eats at you?"

"Of course not. It's my job. I'm not going to complain about it, I just don't see how someone like you can accept me after everything..."

She runs her hand through my hair and it makes my spine tingle.
"I forgot to tell you I was leaving. I don't know how to have someone in my life, like a partner. I've been alone for so long."


"We'll figure that out together. You made a mistake, I know you didn't mean it, I can feel that you're sorry."
We sit quietly for a moment, the air feels heavy around us.

"You thought I wouldn't want you because of that?" She whispers, her mouth hovering over mine.

"It crossed my mind, yes," I let my lips graze hers.

"I want you, I pick you, you're the one," she smiles against my mouth before pressing her lips into mine. I can feel how much she wants me, her blood running through my veins, it's like I can feel her from the inside out.

I groan and pull her down, bringing her chest flush against mine. I feel her holding herself back, trying not to hurt me.

"You really want me? Even with all my fucked up shit?"

"Forever," she says and I can feel her sincerity.

"Show me," I whisper against her.

Her canines release and she smiles at me. Time stands still, this is happening, she wants me...I've waited so long. My mind is racing. I can feel every nerve in my body, like they're exposed and firing all at once. My body is on fire. I feel light headed.
She kisses my neck before pushing her teeth into it. Everything stops. I swear I'm not even breathing. The feeling is so intense that tears drip down my cheeks.

I have to grip the sheets to hold myself down. My body is beaten to shit but I want her so bad.

I moan loudly as I feel her hand run down my chest. She pulls her head back and bares her neck to me. My mind is racing, I'm about to mark my mate.

As I sink my teeth into her neck I feel a tidal wave of emotions rock through my body. The world is brighter, warmer, better, now that I have her with me. She's mine, claimed and marked.

A soft sigh passes contentedly through her lips. Just to torture myself, I bring one of my hands up, gently squeezing at her hip.

I wonder if I can convince her that I'm fine, miraculously healed! All the blood in the body has traveled to my cock. I can't think straight.

"Stop moving so much, your stitches will open," she whispers and I groan.

"Luc..."

She places her small hand over me, applying gentle pressure that brings me so much relief. I drop my head down onto the pillow and try to focus on her face, not the throbbing.

"You have to take it easy," she's focused, looking down at her hand on me. When she starts to pull the blanket down my breath catches.

She gasps and a light pink blush spreads over her cheeks.

"Look at me, baby," I beg her.

She pulls her eyes away from my swollen cock to look in my eyes.
"You don't have to do anything you don't want to..."

"I really want to... can I touch you?"

"Yes," my reply is barely audible. The thought of her hand on me, skin on skin, makes me twitch.

The loud moan that fills the room as our skin connects makes her blush even further.
I'm lost, moving my hips in sync with her hand. If a hand job feels this good, I'm going to die when I fuck her. She's hesitant and nervous but I've never felt anything better than this. When she leans forward and laps at my mark with her tongue I can't hold myself back. She gasps as my release spreads across my stomach and her hand.


"I can't wait to get you home," I pant against her neck.


"Heal, then I'm all yours," I feel her smiling.
