“Whoever touches me is none of your business” I said, shaking his hand from my wrist. His skin felt warm and my skin tingled. I rubbed my wrist trying to get rid of the feeling that was slowly spreading its way up my arm. It unsettled me; I wasn’t sure why but the fact that Layla liked him touching me, made me nervous. I was really starting to wonder what was going on with her, she has never acted like this and around AlphaS she almost seems calm, I didn’t like it. Reminded me of the calm before the storm, like at any moment all hell was about to break loose.
Putting my hands on his knees, I stood up and walked off leaving the Alpha and heading towards the esky’s looking for a drink. Brent walked over knowing what I was looking for, he opened up the esky furthest from me.
“Lil catch” He said, before tossing the bottle of liquor towards me. I caught it mid-air. Exactly what I was looking for. My favourite Vodka. Brent walked over and wrapped his arm around my shoulders tugging me toward where everyone was sitting. As soon as we sat down everyone glanced and shifted away from me like I had the plague.
The only ones remaining were Brent, Shaun, and Amber. I ignored them and cracked the bottles lid. Brent’s arm lazily draped over my shoulder. Yet I somehow knew the Alpha was still watching and for some reason felt uncomfortable with Brent touching me or at least Layla was uncomfortable. I Liked Brent. He was a nice guy and not bad to look at either.
I leaned into him and swigged from the bottle. Before passing it to Amber who took a mouthful and coughed before handing it back.
“What’s with him?” Asked Brent. I knew who he was talking about the Alpha.
“Aria said he either came with us or we weren’t going” I shrugged. Brent didn’t look happy, but I knew he wouldn’t dare pick a fight with an Alpha, let alone Alpha Damien who had quite the reputation. His reputation was impressive, and I must admit I was a little curious about him. I knew Layla definitely was. I felt drawn to him like a magnet, no matter how drunk I got, my eyes would always go back to him, finding him no matter where we moved.
His face expressionless but alert as he watched me. When the night was nearly over, I stumbled back over to my bag which was sitting under the tree still. I bent down to grab it when a hand snatched my bag from my grip nearly making me stumble into the tree.
I hadn’t seen him come up behind me. But he was suddenly there, towering over me making me feel small. I tried to grab my bag to retrieve my keys. When he pulled his hand back and rummaged through my bag.
“You’re not driving in that state” He growled. I rolled my eyes.
“Give me my bag back”
“No, we are leaving”
“No, I am going to Brent’s now, give me my keys” I heard him growl, his skin rippling as his beast fought for control. I took a step back coming in contact with the tree. He stepped forward trapping me between him and the tree. I could feel the warmth of his skin pressing into me. I swallowed my mouth suddenly feeling extremely dry under his gaze. I put my hand on his chest, and could feel the hard muscles as they rippled under his skin. His beast so close to the surface, his eyes flickering.
I intended to push him back when he suddenly relaxed under my touch, his breathing slowing as he leant in closer. So, close I could feel his breath on my neck. I shivered and my stomach tightened. Layla, who had been anxious all night suddenly calming again at his closeness. Urging me to move closer, like that was actually possible.
Only when Amber cleared her throat, was the little bubble we were currently stuck in burst. I suddenly realised, I was touching the Alpha and not just any Alpha but the notorious Alpha of the Crescent Moon Pack. He stepped back, only to grab my hand, lacing his fingers through mine like we're best buddies. He started tugging me toward the path leading to the cars. When we reached the bottom. Amber paused with Shaun.
“Since I am going to be grounded, I am going to stay with Shaun for the night, you okay to get home Lil” I nodded before they both shifted. I placed their clothes in my bag and handed it to them, taking it from Alpha Damien, Shaun grabbed it with his mouth. They both took off into the night, leaving me with Mr grouchy.
“Can I have my keys please?” I asked. Damien growled lowly and I glanced at him.
“I’m driving, I won’t let you drive like that, now get in” He growled. I looked at my blue Audi my dad brought me, maybe he was right my poor car had suffered enough with me driving home drunk. I opened the passenger door before slumping in the seat. I heard him start the car before pulling out onto the road.
“You always drink like that?” He asked. I rolled my head to the side looking at him.
“What’s it to you?” I asked.
“I don’t want you drinking and hanging with unmated werewolves” I rolled my eyes. That was what my father said earlier. “My body, I will do what I want with it” I answered my words slightly slurred. He muttered something too low for me to hear in my state.
“You need to stay awake, I haven’t been to your Pack house before” He said pulling me out of sluggishness.
“Just take me back to my sisters, my wolf won’t hurt anyone when I’m drunk” I muttered before drifting off. I vaguely remember being lifted from the car, remember the Alpha’s scent hitting my nose as he carried me. I nestled into his warmth and felt his lips kiss the top of my head before drifting off into the darkness of sleep.
My head was throbbing when I awoke. I rolled and stretched like a cat, only to start tumbling to the ground. Strong arms wrapped around my torso pulling me back onto the bed. My heart skipped a beat at nearly falling. I half expected to open my eyes and find Brent, yet it wasn’t him. Tingles spread all over my body giving me goosebumps. My eye’s snapping open to find Damien leaning over me, his chest bare and his face only a few centimetres off mine. He relaxed before rolling onto his back and letting me go. I sat upright, panicked. I looked down at what I was wearing and suddenly felt very exposed. I only had a shirt on which wasn’t mine and my white lace panties that were see through. Horrified, I tugged the shirt down. “Fuck Layla please tell me you didn’t fuck him” I felt my wolf stir slightly like she was just waking up.
Damien POV I don’t know how she does it let alone, how the hell this girl is still alive. I have been following her around despite her many protests and believe me she has had every excuse not to be left alone with me. Every excuse to try and escape me. But Aria and her father have both been constantly on her back, every time she tries to do a runner. They manage to get her convinced to let me tag along. But it was starting to become too much and man she was really tugging on my last nerve. I have watched her party and become that drunk and reckless to the point she blacks out completely. Every night, I have to drag her back to her packhouse, just to force her to sleep it off. I know she doesn’t understand why I am here, but I know her wolf is starting to recognise me. One thing I did find out, her wolf is just as comfortable in their human skin as she is in her wolf skin
Lily POV Waking up, I know something is instantly wrong because I am not in my own bed. I sit up and look over to find Alpha Damien laying next to me fast asleep. At least this time I have my own clothes on. I feel Layla stir coming to life at me waking. “What did you do Layla?” She groggily stirs and starts purring trying to go back to sleep. Throwing the covers off, I get out of the bed. The Alpha rolls onto his back throwing an arm over his face, trying to block the light that is streaming in from the window. I grab a pillow and lob it at him. He grunts from the impact of it hitting him in the balls. Grabbing his family jewels before sitting up angrily. I watch as his face changes colour out of anger. Before he can go on one of his well-rehearsed rants about my behaviour, I lob another pillow which
Damien POVI watched as Lily fought for control, I had never in all my life seen anything like what I was witnessing. Layla coming forth in Lily’s human form forcing the shift when Lily wouldn’t give her control. Literally ripping and clawing at her skin and tearing it off in sheets.; I could hear Lily scream in pain. My wolf went into overdrive watching his mate hurt herself. Aria froze for a second and screamed to Lily to fight it. But I knew she wasn’t going to win this battle. This is when I utterly understood what everyone meant about her wolf being unhinged.In shock all I did was watch, horrified at what I was seeing. When she completely shifted, I was completely gobsmacked and shocked to my core. Her wolf was anything but ordinary, she was larger than any Alpha female I have seen, in fact she wasn’t much smaller than my wolf
Lily PovI didn’t understand what happened, last thing I remember is darkness as Layla shoved me out, taking control. Then feeling cold, as if this day couldn't be any worse, I awoke in none other than Alpha Damien’s arms. How did they get her to stop? Why did she suddenly give me back control? Nothing made sense anymore.My body completely ruined as I looked down at the blood pooling on the tile floor, Damien had turned on the shower before glancing over at me, I pulled the towel tighter trying to cover my exposed flesh.Damien only wore a towel around his hips, I could tell he must have shifted when Layla took over.“Did she do that?” I asked looking at the huge bite mark that was healing on his arm. He glanced down at it seemingly
Damien’s POVI waited for her to be completely asleep before moving, I couldn’t risk waking her. Getting up slowly, I grabbed my shirt and pulled it over my head. Reaching over her, I grabbed a pillow and jammed it behind her back, so she would still think I was laying behind her.Darian snorted in my head. “Yeah, because that will work, fool” He hissed. He was right if she did wake, she would intuitively know, I wasn’t there. Our body temps ran a lot hotter not to mention my scent wouldn’t be as strong.“Well let’s hope she doesn’t wake then” I called back at him. I quickly slipped out of the room making sure to lock the door behind me, not that it would do much but at least it would give us warning if she broke down the door. I walked down the corridor and to the c
Lily POVThe light coming in from the window was lighting up the back of my eyelids, I turned away from the light. Rolling over not quite ready to wake up yet. I felt movement behind me before an arm was thrown over me. Delightful tingles running over my stomach, where his hand lay on the inside of my thigh. He pulled me closer, his hand pushing against my sensitive parts. I moaned loudly at the feel and I felt him stiffen behind me. Startled at what I did, I threw his arm off. I quickly sat up rubbing my eyes trying to adjust to the bright light that was filling the room. I could feel my face heat up with embarrassment at my reaction to him touching me.When I opened my eyes, I looked around the room. I could feel Layla pressing against my skin, literally feel my body vibrating as she stirred before waking completely. The Alpha threw his arm over me again, pull
Lily POV We had been on the road for twenty minutes, I just stared out the window. Everything was changing, and I was losing all control of my life. “This is a good thing, I told you everything makes sense” Layla excitedly said in my head. “This is what you meant, finding out mate? How does that make any sense Layla, this isn’t a good thing? He is taking us away from our family. It’s a disaster” She didn’t agree; I pushed her out, blocking her from my mind; I knew she was excited, but I didn’t share that excitement with her. I never wanted a mate; it would only end badly with the wolf I have. Why couldn’t Damien see that? Why couldn’t Layla see that? Whe
