Chapter 11 - Mate Mark
Leo balanced his weight on his arms as he positioned himself between my legs and pressing his hard cock against my mound. He nuzzled his face in my neck and licked the spot he would soon mark me at.
“I’m ready Leo, mark me.”
Leo chuckled. “Soon baby, soon.” Leo aligned himself with my entrance and thrust in. “Always soo tight, baby.” He grunted. With one hand on my ass and one bracing himself up, he trusts in and out and I wrapped my legs around him.
My vaginal walls tightened around his shaft and another orgasm ripped through me. “Ah, Leo, Ah.” That was fast, maybe even a record for me.
“That’s it, baby. I love feeling you cum on my cock.” He slowed his thrusts down and started going deeper, hitting my sweet spot with every thrust.
I was already feeling my third orgasm being brought on and he swelled inside me. His canines grazed against my neck and he bit down on sending me to the most amazing orgasm I had ever had.
I extended my own canines and bit him on his neck, marking him as mine. The mate bond immediately snapped in place and my heart filled with love, pushing my heartache back to a place I couldn’t reach. I felt happy, all my pain subsided and Leo was my sole focus.
Leo rested his head on my forehead and chuckled. “I love you, Olivia.”
“I love you, Leo. Thank you for not giving up on me.”
“I won’t ever give up on you, baby,” Leo promised. “I know it’s only been a few months and your heart is still healing but I hope I can be the one that heals it.”
His words made my heart swell and I wondered how Leo became such a good man. He didn’t show this side to many but it proved how generous and loving he really was. My heart was guarded but loved him, not like I had loved the twins, not blindly and unconditionally but I hope that one day I would love him even more.
We stayed in the clearing until sunrise and watched the colors dance across the sky in each other’s embrace. When the sun had finally risen and our stomachs started to rumble the increasing need to return to reality loomed over us.
I had made a habit out of playing with the necklace the twins gave me and gave little thought to why I was still wearing it. Maybe it was a reminder of the pain I had endured and a promise to not find myself there again or maybe I just couldn’t stand to part with the last piece of them I had left.
“I know I’ve asked this before but what’s so special about that necklace? I’ve never seen you take it off.” Leo questioned and started inspecting it read the inscription. “veni, vidi, and amavi. What does that mean?”
“It means we came, we saw, we loved. The twins gave it to me on my birthday before they…”
“Then why do you still wear it?” Leo looked pained when he asked it and I didn’t have a good enough answer for him.
“Honestly? I don’t know, I guess I’m just not ready to let go of it just yet… But if you ask me too, I will take it off.” I promised.
Leo thought for a moment before he said; “That’s ok, take your time. I know who you belong to, my mark is on you.”
The marks!, I had forgotten all about them. I checked Leo’s neck and his mate mark had transformed into a beautiful tattoo of two wolves snuggling. “What does my mate mark look like?” I was eager to know if mine matched his or not.
“It’s a wolf howling but the howl is in the shape of a heart. That’s unique, beautiful but unique.” We waited a little longer before Leo broke the silence again. “Baby?” Leo nudged me gently.
“We need to tell my brother and maybe put some food in that belly of yours before you waste away.” He joked and then started tickling me.
“No, no, Stop,” I exclaimed as he attacked my sides and I started flailing my arms like a crazy person. I accidentally smacked him in the face with my hand and that caused him to stop. “Oh, goddess. I’m so sorry.”
Leo rubbed his face where I hit him. “Jeez, I didn’t know you were that ticklish.”
I laughed and helped him up. “Come on, let’s get this over with.” We headed to the packhouse and knocked on Jason’s office door. It was still early in the morning but Jason spent most of his time in there and even slept there sometimes although his own room was a few doors down.
“Come in.” Jason hollered from the office.
Leo rested his hand on the handle and looked at me. “Here we go.” He opened the door and we stepped in and found Jason buried in a mountain of paperwork. He looked exhausted as he was running his hand through his long hair. “Leo, Olivia. Great, I needed to speak with you both.”
“We need to speak with you as well but you can go first,” Leo reassured him. We sat down by his desk and waited.
“It seems that Alpha Darren was expecting updates and haven’t been receiving any. He called last night, again. There’s no way out of this and he demands that either Olivia come home or we allow their Beta Greyson to come for a visit.” Jason sighed and the weariness in his eyes became more evident. “I know this isn’t ideal for you Olivia but I invited Beta Greyson over and he is due to arrive tomorrow.”
I glanced at Leo and squeezed his hand gently. I wasn’t ready to see Greyson and I definitely wasn’t ready to tell him about Leo. “Alright, we can work with that,” Leo assured again.
“What was it you wanted to tell me?” Jason hadn’t stopped signing papers and filing them while talking to us but when Leo gave him the news he stopped and looked up.
“Olivia and I have chosen to be mates and completed the mating last night.” He pulled his shirt down and showed the mate mark.
Jason stared at us both for a while before he broke out in a huge grin. “Congratulations! You couldn’t have chosen a better mate little brother. Olivia’s choice on the other hand is questionable.” Jason joked.
“You’re supposed to be on my side!” Leo exclaimed and then scoffed.
“I am, I am. I let you have her didn’t I?” Jason continued to joke.
Leo stood up and Jason did the same. They advanced towards each other and Leo tackled Jason to the ground. “You did not.” Leo groaned after getting punched in the gut by Jason.
Jason laughed and goaded him on. “Oh, yeah. She told me that our night together was amazing if you know what I mean.”
Leo punched Jason a couple of times in the side and the wrestling continued. They knocked over some chairs and a lamp standing in the corner and all I could think of doing was stand there and watch them act like little boys. “Take that back, now,” Leo demanded.
They both settled down to catch their breath. “Fine, she didn’t say that. She made it pretty clear that she wasn’t interested. It’s too easy to get you going, little brother.”
I cleared my throat. “I’m gonna go and find Clara, see you later.”
“Wait, we need to move your stuff to my room later.”
“Yeah, ok. After training.” I left the brothers alone to finish their squabble and went looking for Clara. I found her still sleeping in her bed so I showered, dressed, and packed my stuff while I waited for her to wake up. 45 minutes later I was sitting on my bed, dangling my legs off the side, and waited.
“What’s with the face?” Clara yawned.
“Finally, I thought I would waste away waiting on you… Anyway, I have some big news.” I jumped down and sat on her bed. I pulled down my shirt and revealed my mark.
“Oh… My… Goddess!” Clara squealed. “Leo marked you?!” She shot out of bed and embraced me in a hug so tight that I lost my breath. “Did you mark him?”
“Yeah, we chose to be mates. After the Academy, I will transfers packs and live here.”
“I’m so happy for you and jealous but mostly happy!” Clara kept squealing.
“I need to tell you something else too, it’s about my old pack,” I told Clara everything. How I lost my parents, being the only sibling, Alpha Darren taking a liking to me, the twins, and their rejection and losing my pup. Clara offered the occasional comforting nod and smile but didn’t speak until I was done telling her my life story.
“Olivia, You’re something else. You’re brave and so strong. I now understand you better and why you keep to yourself so much. I’m sorry you had to go through all that but I’m happy you’re here.” She embraced me again.
“Thank you. I just hope Greyson’s visit tomorrow goes by without a hitch.” We headed to breakfast, ate, trained, and then I moved what little I had into Leo’s room.
Leo’s comfort almost kept my mind from racing, thinking about tomorrow and when that didn’t work, sex did the trick. Four times. We went to bed exhausted and nervously awaited the next day.
