“What’s a mating season?” asked Leah.
“It is the time when werewolves consummate with their mates,” answered Romulus.
Leah felt her heart beating nervously and with fear. “B-But you said that you would wait when I was ready.”
He sighed and held Leah by her waist. They walked further from the festivities to get more privacy. The more they walked away, the closer they got to a small lake. Many huge rocks and the tree were surrounding the small lake, made it look peaceful. Romulus motioned Leah to sit next to him and close to the lake.
She obliged. “Now explain.”
Romulus forgot the promise he made to Leah. His excitement of having her at his side consumed him that he forgot that particular promise. “I forgot the promise, but you are also right at the same time. I am so sorry. The mating season is an important night for all werewolves. Werewolves and their mates have to have sex.”
Leah began to turn bright red, and her face was feeling warm. “What if I don’t want to have sex?”
Romulus felt his heartbeat in pain. To him, sex is not for pleasure but love. He wants her to feel his love and wants to feel the same. “I know you are not ready, and I understand your feelings and thoughts, but it is impossible to refuse.”
“Mating season is also the last day of the full moon, and on the last day, werewolves are highly...well...horny. It is said that under the full moon, the probability of women becoming pregnant is high.”
If Leah thought she could not turn into a brighter red, she was wrong. “B-But you can choose not to mate, right?”
Romulus gave out a sad smile. “It is not easy, my love. When we are in heat, our morality does not matter. All that matters is having our mate. It will not be easy for you or me, but please believe me. I want to have sex, not just because of having sex. I want to make love to you. I want this to be special for both of us.”
Leah looked away, embarrassed. She didn’t know what to say, and she could not look at him. A part of her was terrified, but at the same time, she wanted to do it with him. Her heart beat faster and faster. She did not know how to feel and think.
Romulus touched her face and motioned her to look at him. He slowly put his face to hers and motioned her to look at him. They are face to face. He then got closer to her face and put his lips upon hers.
They both kissed under the moon.
