Really! My Mom Is Your Mate?
He stood beside the bed where his mate was lying in a drug-induced sleep, wondering how in the world he was going to break the news to his friend. He could hear him coming up the stairs to check on her after seeing his mom’s friend out. “Thank God that’s over. I like Carrie and all, but she can be a bit much sometimes. C’mon man, I’ll fix us something to eat. Mom’s cabinets and freezer is always stocked and ready to go.” Sean came to stand beside his friend and looked at him. Realization dawned on Sean’s face as Duncan turned to look at him. “Duncan, this is definitely not what I had in mind when I invited you to stay at my home for the month. However, I also know that there is nothing that you can do about it. I do ask that you not jump into anything with both feet. But let my mom get to know you as I have and let her fall in love with you. Because I think I know you well enough by now to know that you are going to try to make that happen no matter what. Am I right?”
Duncan nodded his head. Gathering himself he turned back to look at his mate, noticing again how lush her body was. Feeling his heart pound, he once again turned to his friend and said, “I want to sleep in here with her tonight. My wolf will not let me do any other. I know it may be a little out of your comfort zone, but I have to be close to her. At least tonight, when she isn’t feeling well.” As Alpha, he had never pleaded with anyone. He had simply stated his intent and did it. No questions asked. However, he had never had a mate before, either. Certainly not a mate with a gown son, who happened to be one of his greatest friends, despite their great difference in age. But as a show of respect for his friend and his status as his mate’s son, he asked out of courtesy.
“Very well, Duncan. But, don’t blame me if you wake up with a loaded gun in your face. Mom can be a bit extreme sometimes. As a matter of fact, I think that I will take the bullets out of her gun now.” Sean causally reached around him and pulled open the nightstand drawer, revealing a small caliber pistol.
“Jesus, you weren’t kidding, were you?” Duncan asked incredulously.
“I never joke when it comes to firearms. Something mom and dad both taught me.” Sean’s answer was very matter of fact. Almost like it was an every day occurrence to handle firearms. When, in fact, it was. Which Duncan would later learn.
After removing the bullets, Sean gave Duncan a brief tour of the house and showed him where he could shower and put his things. It was going to be very interesting around here over the next few day, Sean thought to himself. His mom had always been a strong woman, but now that strength was about to be tested. And Duncan, well......He was about to learn what it meant to have a mate that was a headstrong as someone like his mom. Sean grinned as he went downstairs into the kitchen to fix him and Duncan something to eat while Duncan took his shower. It would almost be worth it to call al of his friends who knew his mom. Friends that had grown up in his home with his mom acting as the forever mom-type and not backing down from anyone or anything that she thought might hurt “her boys.” Yes sir, it was going to be very interesting to see how his mom reacted to being introduced to the supernatural world.
