"You've done well, pet," I say as I look over the information she gave me. "Three lashes for you."
"Thank you, Mistress," Carmen says, kissing my shoes. I stop my lips from curling in disgust.
"What about me, Mistress," Roger whines. I stare into his green eyes.
"I wasn't talking to you, Roger," I say. "What did I tell you about waiting your turn?"
"I'm sorry, Mistress. Please forgive me." He kneels, pressing his face to the ground.
"Forgiven. Now, what have you brought me?"
He hands me his report. I take from him and read it. Oh, this is very good news. Delta Tim and his mate had apparently raped Tyler when he was a kid. I can leave them to Sapphire. Their deaths wouldn't be on my hands. I smile.
"Good job," I say. "Four lashes for you, and you can fuck her afterward."
"Thank you, Mistress," They say. I throw a water bottle to Carmen.
"Drink this." She catches the bottle and drinks all the water in it. It contains the antidote to all the poisons that I have been giving her to kill her wolf. Killing it would cause her to die a slow and painful death, but I promised Zeke. I won't be a direct cause to any of his assailants but I will make sure they all die. "Carmen, you're first."
She walks to the center of the room and kneels. I place the reports on the chair I was sitting on and chain her arms in silver. She moans from the action. I summon an ice whip. With a flick of my wrist, the whip hits her back with a loud crack. I put all my rage into it. Calm yourself. I can't help it. Every time I look at their faces I'm reminded of when I was powerless, unable to protect Zeke. It pisses me off.
After I finish her lashes, I take off her chains. Carmen slumps over still caught her orgasm. Listening to Zeke did have some unexpected benefits. These two are so addicted to pain that all I need to do is stop hurting them and then they'll die trying to accomplish the same level of pain that I give them.
I think back to after my date with Zeke. Carmen and Roger found me and dropped to their knee begging me to hurt them, saying that they'll do anything. They've turned out to be a resource in gathering information about this pack, and our current arrangement is beneficial to all people involved. I get to hurt them, and they get to experience pain.
I kick Carmen out the way, and Roger takes her spot. I give him the same treatment. After I'm done with him, he wastes no time pulling up Carmen's skirt and ramming into her. I pick up the report and look to Topaz who has been a silent spectator to everything to what just went down. I gesture her to follow me out the door.
"What if she gets pregnant," She asks.
"She can't," I tell my sister. "Even if she does, she won't be able to carry it term. Not after everything I did to her."
"Remind me to never get on your bad side. You make me feel bad for them. What did you do to them to get them like this?"
"Hey, you're the one that wanted to know what I was doing, and I'm an ice phoenix, Tope. We specialize in mind fuckery. Besides, I have given them the option of leaving, and they chose to stay. They are here of their free will."
"You shouldn't judge people for what they do in their free time. They're consenting adults."
"I'm talking about you, stupid."
"Oh, then thank you."
"It wasn't a compliment." I hold back my laugh.
My phone chirps. I gesture to my sister to wait a moment before I pull it out and check the text from Zeke.
My Joy: Are you busy? Not anymore. I smile.
Me: I'm not.
My phone rings, and I quickly answer it.
"Hello, Mate," I say. "Did you need anything?"
"H-hi," he responds. Tension I didn't know I had leaves my body at the sound of his voice. "I just, wanted t-to hear your voice. Are you sure I'm n-not interrupting anything?"
"Nothing important. I'm just hanging out with Topaz."
"Bitch, I'm right here," my sister protests.
"It sounds l-like I'm interrupting," Zeke says.
"You're not," I tell him. "What are you doing?"
"I'm in my room, lying on my bed. I'm feeling a little tired." I get in my sisters' car where Ruby and Sapphire are waiting.
"Is it from healing?"
"No. I've been feeling tired all day. I felt a little better at lunch but then I felt drained after school."
You hurt Zeke. I frown as guilt fills me. I didn't think he would feel the strain of our mate bond. I thought that our current marks would keep him safe from the effects. I haven't been spending enough time with him because I needed to get everything in place and didn't mind the strain it put on me from being away from him.
"I'm coming to your house." I turn to my sister. "Let me out."
"You don't have to do that." I cast an illusion around me as I shift partially, allowing Azula, my phoenix to take over.
"I want to. I'll see you in a couple of minutes. Goodbye."
I hang up. My wings unfurl, and I take off. I use my magic to wash off the scent of Carmen and Roger from my body. Within minutes, I make it to his house. I knock on the door. Kate answers the door.
"Hi, Amay," she says. She frowns. "Is there something wrong with Zeke?"
"No," I answer. "I just missed him." She smiles then pulls me into a hug.
"You guys are so cute together. Thank you for making my brother so happy." I hug her back.
"I'm returning the favor. He makes me happy too, you know."
"Good. He's in his room. I don't think he's awake, though. He looked really tired when he came home."
"That's fine." I pull from her and head to Zeke's room. I knock on it before entering. I find him changing his shirt.
"That was quick," he says. I pull him into a hug, nuzzling his neck and taking in his citrusy scent.
"I flew," I answer. I hold him tighter. The date wasn't enough. I need to spend more time with him. "I'm staying."
"Okay. I don't have any clothes you could change into. I could ask Kate to ask my mom to lend you some clothes."
"I want something with your scent." I pull back to pout at him. He smiles.
"You can grab a shirt from my closet."
I step away from him and grab a shirt from his closet. I take off my shirt and pants. I hear Zeke make a sound. I turn and see him facing away from me. I smile. Strange wolf. He's seen me naked, but me stripping is too much for him? I take my bra off and put on his shirt.
"All dressed," I say. "You can look now."
He turns around, blushing. Damn, he should really stop doing that. Take him. Not yet. I join him as he climbs into his bed. His bed isn't that big so we have snuggle to fit on it comfortably, not that I'm complaining. I play with his hair as we face each other.
"How are you feeling," I ask.
"Better," he says. "Now that you're here."
Topaz knocks on the front door. The door opens, revealing an older wolf with auburn hair. His green eyes widen in fear as stares at me.
"Are you here to kill me," he asks.
"It depends," on how much of a fight you put up. I tell the Oracle. Based off what Fia told me. He could be either a great ally or the biggest hinderance to my plan. I feel more comfortable just killing him to not risk him ruining everything. "Are you going to invite us in?"
"Follow me." He leads us to his living room. We sit on the couch. He glances at my sisters. "Are they aware of what you are?"
"We are, Oracle," they respond together.
"Why do you align yourselves with this monster," he asks. Sapphire frowns.
"She's our sister," Sapphire says. "I don't care if you the Oracle. Don't think you can call her that to our face."
"Apologies," the Oracle says. "I see in her the desire to destroy our pack completely and a soul older than any other I've seen before. I can see that you are good she-wolves. Whatever you are trying to accomplish would be better without the assistance of one such as your sister."
"A pack as rotten as this one doesn't deserve to live on," I tell him. The room gets colder as my phoenix presses against my mind, taking control. "Cease the games, boy. Whether I kill you or not depends on how useful you are. Do not look at them. They cannot help you. Now, tell me the name of a ranked wolf that isn't complete shit."
I stare at him as I wait for his answer. I briefly contemplate freezing his blood, causing him to have a stroke or heart attack. Maybe we could cause both. Nobody could link it to us, not even my sisters. My phoenix pulls back.
"Beta Frank," he answers eventually. "He is a wolf that has a soul similar to your sisters."
"If I find that you have wasted our time, I will make sure your death is painful."
I stand up and leave with my sisters right behind me.
It doesn't take us long to find Beta Frank. I recognized his name from the pack meetup. I remember his gruff demeanor and a sense of trust that submissives seemed to have around him. Topaz knocks on the front door of his house. The large wolf opens the door. He and Topaz sniff the air.
"Mate," they both say. Nobody does anything for a while. Beta Frank stares at my sister in shock and awe. Then they pounce on each other. He pulls her into his home before shutting the door behind them. Moans are heard from inside the house as I turn to my remaining sisters. I guess she could fuck answers out of him.
"Well, I guess we could come back later," I say with a smile despite feeling a little conflicted. What if he's a piece of shit? He can't be because he is the mate of my sister. I don't think the moon goddess would be so cruel to give my sister a shitty mate.
"Nah, they gonna mate all day," Sapphire says. "We gotta come back tomorrow."
"So that's why I didn't see you all day when you met Tyler. It also explains the moans coming from your room. I thought you no longer had any shame about your porn addiction."
"Shut up." She flicks me in the head. "You have no room to talk."
"It was only for two hours." I flick her back before taking off. "And we didn't mate. Sooo, I have plenty of room to talk."
"That would explain why you're grumpy as hell." She tackles me from behind and starts tickling my sides. I buck her off of me.
"Yep, that's exactly why." I roll my eyes at her.
"Don't be acting like you don't mean it. You see this, Ru?"
"I see it, sis. Ice bitch is in denial," Ruby answers. She walks over to me and places her hand on my shoulder. "If you ever need to talk to someone, you can come to me. I, too, am sexually frustrated from the lack of mate dick in me."
I shove her hand off my shoulder.
"This is why I hate you," I tell them.
"I think you mean love," Sapphire says. "Listen, if you really want to know what mate dick is like, I can tell you. Just the other day Tyler pressed me against-"
"Shut up," I say.
"-and then he rammed his d-"
"Seriously, Saph, I don't want to hear this."
"It felt so good. You know, he's very dominant for a submissive wolf but he really likes it when I hold him down-" I cover her mouth with my hand. She doesn't stop talking. Her lips continue to move underneath my hand.
Seeing that she's determined to keep talking, I give up. I remove my hand and take off. Zeke's house which is continently only a few blocks away from here.
"I'm not dealing with your shit," I yell behind me as I run. Once I'm a safe distance from my annoying sisters I text Zeke.
Me: Are you home?
My Joy: Yes, just got here.
Me: I'm coming over. I'm a couple blocks away.
My Joy: KK, see you soon
He's waiting for me in front of his house.
"Where did you com-" he pauses before sniffing me. His eyes changes to a light brown. He growls at me and then pouts before pressing me against the door. "You smell of another wolf."
He presses his against mine as he rubs his body against me. I gasp, and his tongue dives into my mouth. One hand grips my bicep while the other cups my shoulder and trails down my back before cupping my ass and pulling my thigh around his hip. I moan as I cup his neck and pull him closer.
But then he stops. Zeke pulls away from me, dropping my leg. His face is red as his blue eyes meet mine briefly before looking away. Take him.
"S-s-sorry," he says. "I-I m-mean I-I didn't mean t-to k-kiss y-you like t-that." I grab his hands.
"I'm not complaining," I tell him. I might need a change of underwear but I'm definitely not complaining. I don't what has gotten into my mate these past couple of days. All I know is that I'm completely loving it.
A/N: Anyone else love Amay's relationship with her sisters lol. I love Sapphire and Ruby interactions here.
Random fact about the triplets: They're 18. Their birthdays are on Christmas which was somberly celebrated.
Zeke was messed up at the time so I didn't focus on it in ch. 10.
