18.5 Gift hunting (Zeke's POV)
I sit in Amethyst's car as she drives me home. We're silent during the drive, but the silence isn't awkward. I stare out the window, my mind drifting back to my heat. I can't help the smile that forms on my lips. Mating aside, I loved having Amethyst's undivided attention.
The times between my heat waves were fun. I was tired for the most of them, but Amethyst took care of me in a that left me feeling like a prince. It doesn't help that her house reminds me a castle. I feel a little spoiled because I don't know if I can go back to seeing her less often.
"I have something for you," Amethyst says, pulling me from my thoughts. I look at her, curious to what it could be. Last time something she got me was a phone.
"What is it," I ask.
"i hid it in my car, and you have to find it." I grow excited. A hunt. That sounds fun.
"How do I know if I found it or not?"
"It has your name on it."
"Oh. Can I have a hint where it could be?" Where it's at would tell me its size, and its size would tell me what it could be without me having to open it.
"Nope. While you're looking, I'm just going to head to your room. I think I left something behind from the last time I was here."
Where would be the most likely place that she would hide a gift? She steps out of the car while I think on my question. I pop her trunk open and run to the back of the car to look inside of it. I frown when I see that her trunk is cluttered with stuff. It's going to take a while for me to find it.
"Zeke," I hear my name being called out right before I'm practically tackled my little sister. "Thank the moon, you're okay. I knew that Amey was taking care of you but I didn't know why."
"I went through my heat," I tell her, giving her a hug.
"Oh. Still glad you're okay." We pull back from each other. "Your mate said you needed help looking for something?"
"Yeah, she got me a present and she making me hunt for it."
"That's so cute." She sighs as she joins me in my search. "I hope my mate treats me half a well Amey treats you."
"No, your mate has to treat you just as well, and if he doesn't then, you tell me."
"What are you going to do about it? Are you going threaten him?" I'd kill him. I think back to Dan's mate that I helped die. Even if Alpha Carter finds out what I can do, I would still do it. I'm sure Amethyst will keep me safe. I don't want to see Kate being abused by her mate.
"I'll tell Amethyst."
I get distracted when I feel Amethyst become angry. I wonder what made her angry but then I remember that I didn't get to clean my sheet before I got thrown out of my home. Is she upset that I... pleasured myself? No, that doesn't make sense.
"I found it," Kate shouts. I look at her hand and see her holding a watch with a black band. I see my name written in gold on each band. I take it from her and smile as I put it on. Amethyst should really stop doing doing this or I'll start thinking it's normal for me to be happy all the time.
A/N: How do you guys feel about this type of .5 chapters where it's just a brief alternate POV of the previous chapter. I don't plan on doing a lot of them.
This one popped in my head while I was at work and started working on it right before updating chapter 18
