Chapter Fifty-Two EPILOGUE
“Do you think our child will be a wolf or a coyote?”
The three of us lay on the forest floor. It was dry and a little prickly, but the air was cool and fresh.
Riley tensed. I felt it somewhere under my skin. That was as far as our bonds had progressed.
“Does it matter?” he asked.
“Of course not. I’m just curious.”
“Well, to be honest,” Dustin began,” a coyote child would always be smaller than everyone else. Not too mention weaker in a pack of Sirens.”
“Or they could be a Siren,” Dustin continued, “and hunted for the rest of their lives.”
“That worries me too. 'Safety in numbers' sounds like such a scam.” I sighed and covered my face with my hands.
Dustin hummed; he was thinking. “Not always, but we have a duty to protect the Sirens. It will have to be enough. It has to. ”
Riley yawned. “We’ll figure it out.” He flipped over and looked at the both of us. “That’s why there’s three of us. Nothing can be simple with a Siren, a coyote and a Dustin.”
“Hey!” Dustin protested.
“I’ll never understand how you make giggling attractive,” I muttered, squinting at him.
Riley smirked, leaned over and brushed his lips against mine. “It’s part of my charm, babe.”
Dustin groaned. “Well, he can’t make that attractive,” he said, referring to Riley’s use of “babe”. He also turned over then stole the next kiss before Riley could.
Dustin was more tongue and more aggression than Riley.
He pulled back, and Riley swooped in. His were slow, and sweet.
Gentle. My omega.
“I love you,” I said when he paused to let us breathe.
“I love you too,” he whispered.
Dustin cupped Riley's cheek and kissed him. Riley moaned. “Love you, Riles.”
“I love you too, Dust.” Riley looked down as he said that. Shyly avoiding Dustin’s intense gaze.
Dustin chuckled and kissed him all over: his face, his nose, his eyelids.....making Riley giggle again.
“Stop,” Riley begged.
Dustin pulled away with a satisfied smirk and Riley flopped back down to count the stars with me.
Then my sky was blocked by a head full of Dustin.
“And you, my little minx?” he asked.
I snaked my hands into his hair and pulled him down for a long kiss that made my tummy get all warm.
Wolf or coyote, Siren Alpha or not, I’d love my child. It was from one of the most important people in my life and I would treasure it.
“I love you too,” I replied before he could say. I felt completely at home now that I had my mate marks. I no longer felt like an intruder.
He grinned at me. “We should head home.”
I looked over at Riley and he was watching us, eyes full of wonder.
“We should,” he agreed with the prettiest smile ever.
