Chapter 1 The Ranger MC
I am the president of the Ranger MC. My name is Reaper. I am 23 years old. My VP is, Spirit, and my enforcer is Ghost. Spirit and Ghost are mated and marked. They are the same age as I am. I had a mate once. When I was 15 years old, she died in a car wreck. That was five years ago. She cheated on me. Her name was, Lisa. They both died in that wreck. I have not found my second chance mate and do not care if I do.
If I want to fuck, I will use one of the whores. But, other than that, I don’t talk to them. And I never take them to my bed. Not ever. What no one but my members and their mates know is that we are wolves. I can’t let humans in the clubhouse.
As we rode into the compound and parked our bikes one of the prospects walked over to me. “Reaper, you should know that a woman with three teen boys, a girl, and a baby bought the house across the street.”
“Son of a bitch. Just what we need, a bunch of teenagers.”
“Something else you should know. I was at Wal-Mart shopping, the girl walked past me, and I could have sworn she was a she-wolf. She was covering her scent.”
“Are you sure?”
“Hell yes, I am sure.”
“Was anyone else with her?”
“Yes, two of her brothers. They all were trying to cover their scent.”
“That at least makes me feel better. They are not human.”
“So have they talked to any of you, while we were gone?”
“There she is, walking to the garage.”
I turned and looked at the girl. “She must be 16 years of age, I told him.”
“She does look pretty young.”
I couldn’t take my eyes from her. My wolf stirred in the back of my mind.
“Mate, she is our mate. We need to mark her.”
“Human she is beautiful.”
“Wolf, she is too young for us.”
“No, she is not too young. We need her, we want her.”
“I said, no.”
“You are going to deny us our mate? What is wrong with you?”
“I can smell her from here.”
I lifted my head and sniffed the air. I slowly turned and looked across the street. I looked into the man’s eyes. I slowly backed away, turned, and ran into the house.
“Human, why did our mate run from us.”
“I don’t know, Wolf.”
“Stop running from our mate human. He is made for us.”
“Silver, We can’t. We don’t know if he is like that man that took us a year ago.”
“Our, mate would never hurt us.”
“Really, and just how would you know that?”
“Reaper, I yelled your name three times. She is your mate, isn’t she?”
“Ghost, she is my mate, but I can’t have a teenager for my mate.”
“Reaper, you know that looks can be deceiving.”
“Doesn’t matter, I have no intentions of getting to know her.”
I heard Spirit and Ghost gasp. “You can’t be serious, Ripper.”
I turned and walked into the club. I walked over to the table and sat down. I opened the beer that had been placed in front of me. I leaned my head back leaning it against the wall and closed my eyes.
All I could think about was my second chance mate. In the back of my head, I felt Wolf move around. Then I heard what he said.
“You will not reject our mate, you will not hurt her, or make her feel bad.”
“Shut up, Wolf. We don’t even know her. We have not talked to her. She ran from us.”
“Wolf, it is for the best. We are too old for her.”
“Human, you are wrong. She is not a teenager. She is a full-grown woman.”
As I ran into the house, I looked at my brothers and mom. “What the hell is wrong with you, Julie?”
“You look like you have seen a ghost.” My brother, Stanley said.
“I just saw my mate.”
“What, did you just say, Julie?”
“I just saw my mate. He is the president of that club across the street.”
We started laughing. You have got to be kidding us.
“The president of that club, is your mate?”
“Would I lie about that, William?”
“No, she wouldn’t lie about something like that.”
“Bobbie, I can’t have a mate like him. He looked at me as if he hated me.”
“He is just like that son of a bitch, the wolf that kidnapped me last year.”
“He hated me too. I don’t know why, but he did.”
I looked at my mom.
“Silver, what is it?”
“My mate, he says that his human thinks you are too young for him.”
“Wolf says that he is going to stay away from us. That he is not ready for a second chance mate.”
“Mom, I need to run, I need to think.”
“Be careful, Julie. We have not checked the woods out yet.”
I walked out the back door and toward the woods. I didn’t see my mate leaning against a tree, watching me. I got to the woods and stripped my clothes before I turned into my wolf. I let Silver take over and she ran and ran. not stopping until she grew tired.
“Human, I know you can hear me.”
“I can feel our mate close by. His wolf wants us, but his human is scared.”
“No, Silver. I saw the look on his face. He hates us. He doesn’t want us, and our mate knows it as well.”
“His, wolf is lying to you if he says his human wants us.”
“Ask him yourself. Go, on. Talk to him.”
“Wolf, is it true what my human is saying?”
“Yes, Silver. It is true. He doesn’t want your human.”
“I am sorry.”
“Don’t be sorry. I am sorry he doesn’t want us.”
“After, all my human knows he hates her. Just like the wolf that took her one year ago.”
“The one that did those horrible things to her. The one who has left fear in her, then made her angry, and hard, and wanting revenge.”
“Wolf, it is best that you and your human stay away from us. Especially since he doesn’t want his second chance mate.”
I stood up from the ground and ran back to the house. I blocked Wolf, from trying to talk to us. I will stay away from our mate.
