Chapter 5

~Lakota~

I should feel terrible for what I’ve done. To mate with two men at the same time behind each other’s back. I was a slut, that I knew for sure. At the moment I was hidden in the edge of the forest under the trees watching Connor and Teagan training out in the back yard, with Cyrus’s instructions. Constance was there too but she was halfheartedly sparing with Asher the beta’s son. All they were doing was giving each other goo-goo eyes and cuddles every time they ended up in each other’s arms. My eyes moved over Cyrus as he barked out orders and I felt my ears lay back at the warm feeling in my stomach. His dark brown hair was highlighted in the sun, he was dressed in unusual casual clothes today, just jeans and a white t-shirt no cargo pants, but he was still wearing his black boots. His muscles were straining against the fabric of his shirt and his arms were rippling with them as he moved his arm pointing out Connors mistakes every so often.

I whimpered throwing my paw over my nose as I eyed his every move. He was gorgeous, he always has been but before the reason I never pushed our mating was because I didn’t know a thing about it. I still don’t really know the ins and outs of mating, but I know once you’ve bit your mate there is no going back.

I sighed, and now I have two.

I didn’t know if it was normal or not to have two mates but since I’ve never seen anyone so far have two mates I’m guessing not so much.

I didn’t know where Gale was at the moment but I could feel he was still on the pack grounds. His father was talking with the Alpha about this upcoming war with my ‘parents’ and everyone was on edge. I knew that if I ever saw them I would tear them apart for what they did to me and Teagan. I glanced out to watch Teagan trade blows with Cyrus now and saw how experienced he was in fighting.

I’ve watched him before back in Cairngorm where they had trained. I saw how disturbed he was and leery of everyone, he would attack anyone who approached him. Cyrus especially had the rough end of it since he was the one who had to gain Teagan’s trust and was attacked constantly. He came in our room multiple times with a cut here or a fracture there.

He was weary and trust was so far from his vocabulary. I do remember always wanting to go to him and comfort him the best I could. I felt like we were similar in a lot of ways, being held against our will and no way to trust anyone. But now I observed him and saw the relaxed posture that was seeping into his form now and the easy way he fought with the others like it was fun instead of survival. I know that my parents did this to him, he was tortured to the point of insanity and they let that happen to him over some stupid stone!

I’d kill them!

“Wow, I can feel the blood lust coming off you in waves Lakot.” Gale’s soft husky voice whispered in my ear making them flicker at the feel of his breath.

I turned my head to see him laying on his side beside me using his hand to prop his head up.

I had the overwhelming urge to lick his face, but I held back out of respect of Cyrus since he was only a few feet away. He felt betrayed by Gale and my mating. I closed my eyes with flickers of guilt, but it went away quickly when Gale combed his fingers through my fur and I purred.

“You’re the softest wolf I’d ever touched.” He whispered and brought his face close to me and kissed my muzzle.

My tail thumped hard against the ground as he nuzzled his face in my neck.

“I just want to sink my fangs into you” my eyes rolled back at the image that entered my mind.

Please do.

“So tell me mate, why are you always in this form. I was hoping for a little skin to skin contact.” His voice rumbled against me and my stomach tightened in anticipation.

I looked up at him and couldn’t help myself anymore. Reaching up I licked him on the cheek over his left eye in a loving gesture. I watched him close his eyes before opening them only to be a blazing silver.

“You’re going to tempt me to take you up to my room and have my way with you my little pup.” He growled.

I bared my teeth in a wolfy smile,

“Shift for me” he whispered his hand caressing down my flank. My eyes traveled back towards the training group, eyeing my mate Cyrus with longing. I wanted him here with us.

Gale followed my gaze and hummed in his chest as he kissed the side of my face.

“I can smell him on you Lakot” I snapped my gaze back to him wondering if I’d see fury in his eyes, but I only saw acceptance.

“I know he doesn’t like me and there is nothing I can do about that right now but he knows full well that you’re my mate as well. Would you feel more comfortable if you followed me in the house?” I stared at him for a moment before shaking my head and laying it back down on my paws.

I heard him sigh before flipping up on his back.

“Suit yourself, I guess we’ll have to wait for him to come around.” He said and stared up into the top of the trees.

Cyrus looked over my way as if he heard the conversation and his lips thinned as he saw Gale. I lowered my eyes to the ground before I got to my paws. Ignoring Gale’s head turning to follow my movements, I trotted past Cyrus, rubbing up against his leg and made my way into the house.

I needed space from those two.

I was in the backdoor when someone moved in my way, almost stepping on my paws. Jumping out of the way I growled.

“Oh, sorry Lakota” I looked up to see Kyle and I immediately stopped growling and whimpered. Jumping to my back paws I pressed my front paws on his chest almost coming up to his chin.

“Hey!” he laughed grapping my wrist in his hands to lift my dirty paws off his clothes. “What’s gotten into you?” He asked.

I landed on the floor as he let me go and brushed up against him impatiently.

I needed to talk with him, now!

I trotted over to the stairs and looked back at him. His face lit up with understanding and followed me to mine and Cyrus’s room.

I shifted once inside and Kyle closed the door behind him.

“What’s up?” he asked frowning at my behavior.

“I have a problem”

“What problem beside your asshole parents coming out of the wood works and making everyone’s life a living hell” he raised a brow at me.

“Yes, that is one of my problems but this one is about my mating.”

“Mating, you’re mated?”

“Yes and not just to one but two people.”

Kyle walked over to the bed and sat down staring up at me with utter confusion.

“Two mates?”

I nodded as I picked up discarded clothes on the floor and threw them on. I chuckled at how large Cyrus’s shirt fit on me, it looked like I was wearing a dress.

“Okay so you have two mates, besides that is there more to this problem?”

“Yes, they don’t particularly like each other.”

He closed his eyes,

“Yeah that would be a problem.”

I sat next to him and told him everything that had happened to me since Gale’s father had taken me.

“Wow, your life is complicated right now isn’t it?”

“Yes, yes it is”

He was quiet for a moment before standing up and looking down at me.

“Well from the way I see it you have two mates and you need to accept that, so do the two of them.”

I looked up at him with wide eyes. He was serious.

“You think that they are just going to accept this?”

“You did, didn’t you?” I looked away shrugging at him.

“Sort of”

He stared at me then turned towards the door.

“Well you need to figure out how you feel first, that is the most important thing right now and then you need to get them to focus on what matters most to them if they are going to be difficult with you.”

With that he left me alone with my thoughts and still my struggle with my two mates.
