Chapter 9:

“Hi Dani.,” he says, smiling awkwardly.

I smile back before Tyler growls warningly.

I roll my eyes. “Possessive much?”

Adrian was sitting In the backseat, so I declared myself shotgun and sat down next to Tyler, who was driving.

I dove into my back pocket and brought my phone out before connecting it to the sound system in Tyler’s car.

I grinned evilly to myself. This was going to be one hell of a ride.

Before I could start my music-induced torture however, Adrian held out a stick of gum. “For your motion sickness.”

I stare at him in shock. “Wha-how-how did you know?” I asked.

“I may have taken some information from your friend Nina,” he says, blushing.

Wow, thanks Nina. Now I had even more trouble letting him down.

Tyler interrupted us. “Shall we get going then?”

I nod.

*****

I wake up, then leap up when I realise I’m on Tyler’s arm.

“I’m so sorry!” I blurt.

He chuckles. “It’s okay, I was enjoying it.”

I try not to blush at his comment and look behind me. Adrian is sleeping, in the back peacefully, snoring a bit.

“Wanna take a picture of that?” Tyler asks, motioning towards the right side with his chin since his hands are on the wheel. I turn and gasp, there’s a beautiful lake with random trees weaving in and out, and different types of birds sitting here and there. I pull out my camera and immediately take a picture.

I turn back to Tyler, about to put my camera back in, but then my eyes travel his body. Moon Goddess. He was so incredibly perfect and photogenic it would be a crime not to take a pic of him. I quickly snap a candid, then put the camera away. He stops the car.

He looks at me then, and even though he smiles I know he must feel exhausted since he’s been driving for five hours non-stop. I hesitantly put a hand on the side of his face. He leans into my touch, causing the butterflies in my stomach to judo flip each other.

“Want me to take over? You should get some sleep. Can’t have you being the zombie alpha,” I say.

I bite my lip nervously at the thought of meeting other wolves.

His eyes turn dark with desire. Before I know it, his lips are locked on mine, his hands digging into my back, pulling me closer. My hands knot themselves in his dark, soft hair, and I begin to lose myself to his touch and taste.

For a blissful moment, I feel complete.

Until we break apart due to the sound of someone’s throat clearing.

We pull apart and look behind to see a red-faced Adrian.

I blush a deep red in embarrassment and watch as Tyler’s ears go pink. His arms slide around me as he gives my forehead a peck. I elbow him in the ribs because I know he’s doing it just to get on Adrian’s nerves.

It works.

Adrian gets out of the car, slams the door and walks towards the forest.

I start to walk after him. Tyler’s hand grabs my wrist. “What are you doing?” he asks, his voice tinged with anger.

I shrug him off. “I can’t keep leading him on, Tyler. He’s a good guy, and I hate knowing I hurt him.” My voice is filled with desperation.

He looks at me for a moment, and then nods and lets me go, lips pursed.

I run into the forest and shift.

I spot the sandy wolf underneath a big palm tree, whimpering and howling quietly in pain.

My heart clenches.

I shift back. The sandy wolf notices and shifts back too.

The normally cheerful Adrian is gone, replaced by this hurt, pained and sad one. His brown eyes glisten with unshed tears as I look at him sadly.

He quickly puts an arm around me. Kisses my neck. I am so shocked I stay frozen. He’s about to reach my lips when I push him. “What the f**k is wrong with you?” I scream. I pummel his chest with my fists.

“Do you not feel anything?” he asks, tears running down his cheeks.

I reach an arm out, wanting to comfort him. But before I can do that, a big black wolf with blue eyes springs itself on Adrian. I scream in horror as Adrian falls with Tyler’s wolf on top of him.
