I woke up to warmth surrounding me. I felt a strange heaviness on my waist and looked down to see what it was.
Seeing my mates arm around me scared me as I knew I was begining to love the feel of it as I slept, the warmth and comfort of our bond.
I mentally frowned at myself, I cannot afford to put this pack under jeopardy because of my feelings for Dimitri.
Looking at the digital clock on the bedside table, I saw the time.
I frowned at how early it was. No one should have to be awake this early. Pure torture.
Knowing I wouldn't get back to sleep, I began trying to get up, I tried to lift up Dimitri's heavy arm so I could slide out of bed but he just strengthened his grip on me. I sighed and rolled my eyes. This would be hard.
Once again not managing to take his arm off of me, I began to try and wiggle my way out of it. I failed to remember what had happened last time as I sought my way out like that.
I heard a loud groan as I wiggled to try and get out of his firm grip but froze as I heard the sound. Mentally face palming myself, I hoped that he was still asleep.
"As much I loved you practically grinding yourself on me, mate, can you stop? Just sleep." He said with a barely awake, husky voice that made me want to melt into his arms.
"I-urrr- wanted to get out, can you let me go please?" I asked.
"Mmm, let me think....No." He replied. I could practically hear his smirk.
I groaned in frustration and started whacking him on his back.
And let me tell you...He has some muscles.
He hissed in surprise and slackened his grip on me for a second before lifting himself to lay his head on my chest and wrap his arms around my body even tighter than before.
I took a deep breathe at our close proximity and shivered.
He stopped my incomprehensible stutters and said lowly, "Shhhh...Just sleep some more..."
I suddenly remembered why I had woken up so early. TRAINING!
"Dimitri, you promised...I want to go to training and it starts at 6am. I've only got half an hour to do everything."
He groaned loudly again and flipped himself off me to sit up on the bed. Seeming to search my eyes, I gave him an innocent begging stare.
Making a short noise of annoyance, he said "Okay fine. I'll order some food to come here so you won't be late."
I smiled at him and walked inside the closet to get my training clothes. Done with that, I took a refreshing hot shower and brushed my teeth, standing in only a towel, facing the mirror.
Suddenly the door flew open and I saw Dimitri come inside.
"Breakfast is here. Hurry up if you want to be on time." He said before noticing my lack of clothes. As soon as he did, I saw his eyes turn black and a smirk begin to play on his luscious lips.
I grumbled to myself under my breathe, glaring and pushed him out of the door before making sure to lock it.
Minutes later, I was fully clothed, I had put my hair into a ponytail and slipped it behind the hood I put on, and walked out of the bathroom to eat something.
On the desk, I saw a large pile of pancakes on two plates. One of the piles already being eaten by my mate. I sat down next to him and ate my pancakes. I moaned as the taste of the scrumptious food went onto my tongue. It was absolutely delicious.
I finished my pile in a few minutes and looked back to look at the time.
I grinned and stood up from my seat.
"Well...Urrrr...I'll be going then. Thanks for breakfast." I murmured and turned around.
I heard a loud laugh behind me.
"It's funny how you think I would have let you go out there and train with other males by yourself." He said humourusly.
"They can't even see me! I wear a hood!" I shouted angrily.
"And? I'm coming. I would have been helping out with the training of the new guards anyway. Now I'll be watching you too."
I glared at him, irritated.
Swiftly leaving the room, I heard him follow me, not saying anything but no doubt smirking.
I reached the field soon after and approached Emmy as Dimitri left to talk to his Beta and Gamma. She saw me as I walked up to her and hugged me violently, grinning widely.
"Heyyyy Lexie!!" she shouted happily and I felt a smile come over my face at her constant cheerful behaviour.
"Hi Emmy. You okay?" I asked.
"Mhm, yep definitely!! I've missed you so much! I must have told you that so many times already but, eeekkk!!! I'm so happy you're back!" she hugged me again and bounced up and down in front of me. I saw her mate, Victor, come up behind her and hug her from behind.
I grinned shyly at the couple.
"So how has Victor been treating you? I'm ready to castrate him if he did anything wrong...then stab him...repeatedly...you know...casually..." I said to her and watched as Victor gulped in panic.
I saw her mouth open in horror before closing and opening repeatedly like a frog.
"Whatttttttt?!?! ALEXANDRA!!! OH MY GODDESS NO!!! He's been treating me fine! Brilliantly even!! There's NO need to harm him!"
I chuckled in response.
Victor was still looking at me scared and in horror. I winked at him and mimicked me beheading him by sliding my finger across my throat. He gulped again with wide, terrified eyes and I burst out into laughter.
"What's going on here?" I heard Dimitri ask as he came up to us and I stopped laughing but continued smiling.
"She threatened me!! SAVE ME!! I don't want to be castrated!!" Victor shouted in horror to Dimitri as Emmy tried to calm him down by whispering soothing words into his ear.
"Only if you hurt Emmy. So you better not." I smirked and looked up to Dimitri to see him smirking and silently chuckling.
Later, training started with Dimitri watching us train and perfecting our fighting stances. The Gamma, Denis, lead and taught us how to fight with the correct techniques with Victor helping us out as well.
