Killian pov

We have been traveling forever. We are a pack of about 25 lycan's and I am the Alpha. I have a Beta Tanook who is my best friend. We try to join packs but no one will accept us. We don't cause any trouble and typically stay to ourselves. We just want to belong somewhere. We have been traveling for a day and have come across a new pack. The crescent moon pack. We talk to some of the guards and they say they will chat with their Alpha. After about an hour he responds saying the Alpha said no, but the Full Moon pack to the north are lycan friendly. Perfect so we are moving again.

We just want to be somewhere and belong. We are great warriors as we train each other and most are almost 7 feet tall. I am just at 7 feet so we can be intimidating. I have muscles and a six pack with tan skin and jet lack hair with forest green eyes. I have tattoos covering my upper body from my waist to my neck and down my arms as most of us do. We quickly shift and start heading up north. Turns out it's about a days run away so we run about halfway as the evening draws in. We decide to rest for the night before we head out in the morning. We talk about what it would like and dream about our mates.

We have some that have found their mates along the way but they were then kicked from their packs for being mated to a lycan. So we have about 3 she wolves with us traveling. They would rather be with their mate than their pack. We had two get rejected by their mates because they are lycan. We go from pack to pack and ask if we can join. I'm not looking to lead a pack, and don't really want to.

My parents were rogue lycans and just kept to themselves. I grew up with others around like Tanook but my parents never really socialized with others. They were content at being outcasted but I wasn't. So against their wishes we went on the road. We have tried over 15 packs over the years to no avail. We keep trying in hopes someone will change their mind.

We pull up to a cave and check really quick to make sure it's empty. As we snuggle in we build a fire as we have two she wolves getting late into their pregnancies and cannot shift. So we make sure we keep them warm while we guard in shifts. We have a few more hours of running before we meet the next pack.


As the morning sun rises we quickly gather our stuff to travel the rest of the way. The she wolves mates shift while they get carried. Since we run upright they get carried bridal style. They used to ride piggy back but with their bellies its not exactly doable anymore. We travel for what seems hours as we see guards in the distance. As we stroll up we see smiles instead of nasty looks.

Keaton "Hey lycan got a name?"

I quickly shift and answer "Yeah man my name is Killian, this is my pack. We are looking for a pack to belong to. Is this the Full Moon Pack?"

Keaton "It sure is! Let me link the Alpha after his training and I will let you know what he says. We are lycan friendly as we already have some members."

We leave some lycans there as we walk around waiting.

I feel someone looking at me as my beta nudges me pointing to a window of what looks like a pack house in the distance. My breath hitches as my wolf Milak is going crazy yelling 'Mate! Mate!' I see her look straight at us cocking her head, and quickly grab my beta running back to the others. I run up to the guard asking if he has mind linked his Alpha yet, he responds saying no.

"I have found my mate and she is in your pack!"

Keaton "Well now that changes things doesn't it."

I see his eyes gloss over and when they clear he extends his hand for a handshake. "Welcome to the pack! Alpha Marx will meet you at the pack house. We thank him as we slowly walk heading towards the pack house. Thank goodness we found this pack, and they accepted us. Our pregnant females are being carried crying as they are exhausted. It's been a long time coming to find someone to accept us.

As we slowly approach the pack house we see multiple members standing with tons of shorts. We quickly throw them on as I approach the Alpha nervously. I am praying everything goes well as we don't want issues.

Alpha Marx "Welcome friends. Please feel at home here. For those that are mated we can issue you homes inside and those unmated if you find them come to us. We will issue you a cottage. Who is the leader?

"I am, my name is Killian."

Alpha Marx "Well Killian I heard you found your mate in this pack. Where did you see her?"

"In a window of the pack house."

Alpha Marx "Ok well she is around here somewhere, I am sure you will find her. Tomorrow evening we will have a welcome party for you. We will start processing you and adding you to the pack this evening. For those that have pregnant mates please take them to the medical ward. There the doctor is waiting to look them over. Killian do you mind joining me and my Beta in my office. These members around you will help you get situated before this evening."

I nod and follow the Alpha to his office where I see his Beta sitting there, so I take a seat in the other chair introducing myself to the Beta. I can smell the most amazing scent of jasmine and vanilla. I am relishing in the most intoxicating smell when I am pulled from my thoughts.

Alpha Marx "Killian, have you ever thought of running a pack before?"

"Not really interested, why do you ask?"

Alpha Marx "I will cut to the chase my Luna, future Alpha and daughter were killed in a rogue attack a couple years ago. I am left with my step son. I love him as if he was mine, but he's not exactly Alpha material. He keeps trying to get the Beta's daughter who stepped in as Luna years ago to be his mate. She is waiting for her mate. So I have decided that I need to find a replacement within this next year. So I ask again are you are interested."

"Not really but I will think about it."

Alpha Marx "Great! You will have a room here, but if you want to walk around your welcome to."

"Well to be honest I can smell my mates scent in the home. So if I follow it would you be able to tell me who it is?"

Beta Tristen "We can't guarantee it as there are so many staff members that come through here."

I simply nod and take my leave heading out the doors. I pick up the scent walking towards a building which looks like the med ward. But it shifts and heads away from the building. I follow as I see it's leading towards housing. I see some guy stomping back towards the pack house, and something tells me thats the step son. I turn my head as the scent leads to a small cabin. I don't want to just scare her so I sneak around back and hide in the forest.

As the sun quickly sets I watch her in her kitchen and she looks straight at me through her door. I quickly leave and know it will have to wait till tomorrow. I quickly make my way back to the pack house and as I enter I run into the Alpha and Beta.

"Who lives in the little peach cottage out to the West side of the building?"

Beta Tristen "That is my daughter Jessara why?"

"She is my mate. Looks like I will be thinking your offer over."

Alpha Marx "Sounds great. This is your room key. We will see you tomorrow."

I head up the stairs and to the right where the guest rooms are. I enter and lay down on the bed thinking of my beautiful mate.

Oh what a Luna she would make! Milak wants to go back and starts whining. I think I must go back! I quickly jump up and run out of the pack house towards her house and look in from the back. I can't see her but the lights are still on so I take my chance. I try the back door and it isn't locked, so I sneak in and see her asleep on the couch. She is absolutely gorgeous! Brown curly hair that is pulled up into a ponytail. Tan skin and has to be short, because she is tiny.

I slowly go over and pick her up smelling her scent. The smell goes straight to my groin and while I grunt Milak is bouncing around. I place her in her bed and quickly inhale her scent at her neck and leave. That will have to hold me over till tomorrow. Oh yes she is mine!
