Jayce’s eyes grew wide as he took in my question. Before giving him time to reply, I turned and made my way up the staircase. Either he was going to follow me or he wasn’t; but I had a fair idea of the choice he would make.
I had tried to block my desire for Jayce out but no matter how hard I tried or how hard I tried to think of something else, I couldn’t. The need for him was deep inside me, it had been tearing up my insides all week. It was primal and animal and I knew there was only one way to make it stop.
I walked into my room and stopped near the bed. I didn’t want to turn around, I didn’t think my animals could handle the rejection if Jayce wasn’t behind us.
Within seconds I felt the air around me spark with a familiar electricity. I closed my eyes and breathed in the intoxicating scent of my mate as I felt his hands softly grasp my hips. I groaned and rolled my head to the side, causing Jayce to dig his fingers in.
He pushed his body up against mine, I could feel Jayce’s hot breath on my neck as he breathed me in.
My whole body ached for him, I had never felt anything so powerful. Jayce’s lips softly grazed my ear, causing my body to tremble with anticipation.
“If I go any further there will be no turning back. Is this what you want Quinn?” He whispered.
I moaned loudly as he kissed my neck and nodded.
“I need you to say it Quinn. Tell me what you want me to do. Tell me what you need” Jayce groaned, his hand sliding inside the front of my shorts.
My breathing grew heavy and I closed my eyes, dropping my head back until it rested on Jayce’s muscular shoulder. I could feel his fingers stroking the outside of my underwear, I wriggled my hips to give him more room. Jayce’s firmness pressed into my lower back and I pushed against it. It was exciting knowing that he was hard because of me, because he wanted me and much as I wanted him.
“Quinn...” he rasped, “Say it!”
Jayce tore his hand from my shorts and spun me around to face him. His eyes were black and he smiled as he looked down at me.
“What?” I groaned, my body aching to feel him against me again.
“See for yourself” Jayce laughed.
He turned me to the side so I faced the mirror next to my bed. It took me a second the realise what he was talking about but then I saw it. My eyes were also black. I gasped, my hand covering my mouth in shock.
“I look terrifying” I exclaimed.
“I think you look fucking sexy” Jayce murmured as he turned me to face him again. He lowered his head until his lips hovered millimetres from mine.
“Before we take this any further you need to tell me what you want” he whispered, “but make it quick before my wolf decides he’s not waiting”
I tried to reach Jayce’s lips with my own, only to have him move just out of reach. What was I supposed to say? He knew what I wanted, the prick just wanted to see me squirm. I blushed at the thought of saying out loud what I was thinking. Dirty talk wasn’t really my forte, I had no experience in it...or much else.
“Don’t go all shy on me now, just tell me what you want so I know we’re on the same page”
“I don’t know!” I squeaked, throwing my arms up and walking towards the window.
It was dark outside, the full moon high in the sky. I could sense Rogue was getting edgy. I had been fighting the shift all week and I knew that if Jayce rejected us again that my chances of not shifting were pretty slim.
“You don’t know?” He asked, coming to stand at my side.
I hadn’t told Jayce about my lack of experience when it came to intimacy. I just thought he was aware because of the fact I had been on the run for a large portion of my life and that didn’t include shacking up with random men in random towns. I sighed and shrugged my shoulders, still not wanting to make eye contact with him.
“I know what I feel and I know how you make me feel and I know I want more...” I muttered.
Jayce placed his hand gently under my chin and lifted my face up until I was forced to look at him.
“Quinn. Are you a virgin?” He asked. There was no hint of of sarcasm or humour in Jayce’s voice.
I sighed and nodded my head. Jayce exhaled slowly and smiled. I was surprised at his initial reaction, I had thought he would laugh or be shocked or worse, disgusted.
“Well that is a pleasant surprise” he drawled and tucked a bit of hair behind my ear.
“Why pleasant? I thought someone with a little more experience would be able to give a little more...pleasure”
I bit down on my bottom lip as Jayce took a step closer to me and held me by the waist, his mouth once again hovering dangerously close to mine.
“Nothing gives me more pleasure than knowing your body belongs to me and me only. The thought of someone else losing themselves in you pains me. I want to be your first...and last”
Jayce’s mouth pressed firmly down on mine and I melted into his arms. My lips opened, allowing his tongue to explore me. As our kiss deepened he linked one of his hands with my own, his other hand tracing down my waist to my hip and holding me against his body.
Everything about him felt amazing. I fisted his silky black hair as my tongue danced with his. Rogue giving a satisfied purr as Jayce groaned deeply when I bit down on his lip.
“I need you” I rasped, pulling away from his lips.
Jayce exhaled and pressed his forehead against my own.
“Quinn. If we do this it will mean completing the bond. You will be mine forever, there’s no going back”
I thought about what that meant. If Jayce and I completed the bond it would mean that we would be linked on a physical, spiritual and mental level. We would be deeply in tune with each other’s senses and I would also be able to use the pack link. The other part of completing a true mate bond was the bit I found most interesting and what made wolves search their whole lives for their mate; your strengths were combined and after completing the bond both wolves became much stronger versions of themselves.
For me this would mean that I would gain Jayce’s Alpha strengths. I would gain his power, I would also gain the ability to control the pack.
We haven’t even met his pack.
Rogue was right. I was yet to be introduced to the Fern Creek pack as Jayce’s true mate. If I walked in, already mated to him and already being their Luna then I could only imagine the push back I might receive, especially when they found out about my shifting abilities.
“Quinn?” Jayce whispered, sensing my unease.
“I need to meet the pack, Jayce. They won’t respect me if we take this step before we have even received their blessing” I ran my fingers through my hair, frustration tearing through my body.
We need this! We need him now!
I wanted to scream as Rogue’s desperation vibrated through my soul. I grabbed my head in my hands, closing my eyes tightly as I tried to hold in the feeling of needing to shift.
“Deep breaths Quinn. Don’t let the animal take control” Jayce held me against his body.
I pressed my head against Jayce’s chest and tried to slow my breathing. I listened to his heart beat and concentrated on how the material of his shirt felt under my skin. I could feel my body relax slightly as Jayce wrapped his arms around me.
“Come to bed” he whispered softly into my hair.
I took Jayce’s hand as he led me towards the bed. I had butterflies in my stomach and my mouth had gone dry. Trust was something I wasn’t good at but for Jayce I knew I had to try.
“Lie down” Jayce ordered.
I went to open my mouth and Jayce put his finger to my lips, silencing me.
“Trust me” he repeated.
Jayce’s eyes had grown dark and his breathing was heavy. The sexual energy that emanated from him was intoxicating and the anticipation of what he had in mind was almost more than I could bare.
I climbed on to the bed and lay down. I felt the mattress move under me as Jayce climbed on. My breath caught in my throat as Jayce straddled me, his body towering over mine.
“You must do as I say Quinn” he groaned and lifted my arms above me so my fingers touched the headboard, “keep your hands here and don’t move them. What ever happens...don’t touch me”
I nodded. Jayce took his shirt off and threw it to the side. I squeezed my legs together as I took in his beauty. The man was a beast, the sight of the thick muscle that covered his chest, arms and shoulders had me wriggling underneath him. Jayce raised his eyebrow, causing me to stop moving and bite my lip.
“Keep still” he growled.
Jayce’s hands gripped the bottom of my singlet and with one swift move he ripped the front of it completely, exposing my bra. I wanted to touch him, to slide my fingers over his rippling abdominal muscles, to trace the V shape that led down to the dusting of hair just above his jeans. I fisted my hands in frustration, trying my hardest to keep them where they were.
Jayce lowered his head. I groaned as his lips touched my collar bone, planting soft kisses across my skin and down my chest. My hips moved involuntarily as I felt Jayce’s teeth grazed my my breast, grabbing my bra in his teeth and pulling the cup down; exposing my nipple.
Jayce squeezed his knees against my legs to hold me in place as I felt his mouth close in over my exposed breast. I moaned loudly, the feeling was almost too much. Electricity crackled through my whole body, I wanted to arch my back off the bed but Jayce kept me firmly pinned down.
I felt his tongue circle and flick the hard peak and his hand slid over the top of my other breast.
“Jayce. I can’t...” I moaned.
The need to grab Jayce and wrap myself around him was overwhelming. It took every ounce of will power I had to keep my arms where they were.
I felt Jayce’s lips start to move down my body, covering my ribs and stomach in soft kisses. The sensation was almost too much, I needed more, Rogue needed more.
I lowered my arms and grabbed on to Jayce’s shoulders only to hear him growl and without looking up, grab my arms with one hand and pin them back above my head. I could almost feel his grin against my stomach as he continued to place kisses down my skin.
I bit my bottom lip and looked down as Jayce reached the top of my shorts. He paused momentarily causing me to wiggle my hips slightly.
“If I let go of your arms are you going to be a good girl?” He asked.
I nodded my head, biting my lip harder.
“Say it, Quinn”
“Yes!” I cried, needing him to continue.
Jayce let go of my arms, his hand sliding down my body, massaging my breasts once more on the way down. I felt him undo the top button of my shorts and undo the zip. I lifted my hips slightly, allowing Jayce to slide the material down my legs. I moaned as I felt his hot breath against my underwear, lifting my hips again as he ripped the black piece of lace from my body.
I felt my cheeks flush as Jayce sat upright, he stared down at my mostly naked body, heat and lust in his eyes. I lowered my arms, covering my face with my hands.
“No” Jayce murmured, softly pulling my hands away and placing them back above my head, “there is no need to be embarrassed, you are fucking breathtaking”
I opened my eyes, slowly dragging my gaze up his body until I met his face. I had never had a man look at me the way he did. He looked at me like I was a goddess, he looked at me the way I knew I looked at him.
My breath caught in my chest as Jayce lowered himself down again, nestling his face between my legs. I struggled to keep my body still as he kissed the inside of my thighs, gradually moving up until I felt his tongue sliding slowly between my folds.
“Jayce!” I cried out, my whole being on fire with one simple action.
Jayce held me still, his hands digging into the flesh of my arse cheeks. His tongue entered me again, moving slowing and methodically until I could feel something building up deep within my soul.
My breathing quickened and I could feel my heart racing in my chest. Jayce’s movements were sending me over the edge, I wanted to scream I wanted to be able to move my body.
“Give in to it Quinn” Jayce growled between my legs.
That was it. Hearing Jayce’s demand as he pleasured me was my undoing. I screamed out loud as I felt a wave come over my whole body. My hips jerked and Jayce’s fingers dug into me harder as he held me in place. I had never felt anything like it but could now completely understand what all the hype was about.
Jayce let go of me and climbed off my body. Leaving me bask in the after affects of his handy work.
“Where are you going?” I breathed, watching as he slid off the bed.
Jayce laughed and ran his fingers through his messy black hair.
“To have a cold shower before I do something we may regret later”
With that Jayce was gone, leaving me alone to take in all that had just happened. There was no going back now, I knew it and he knew it. Tonight’s events were only going to keep my animal sated for so long, it would only be a matter of time before we needed more.
