Annie watched the witches chant around her sister, she could feel the magic pulse around them. Abby lay still in the circle, her eyes closed. She looked peaceful in sleep; the moon was just beginning to shine and it made her sister look otherworldly. Annie felt a hand sneak into her own, threading with her fingers, and she looked up at Annie. Smiling softly at the strength that the woman was trying to lend her.
It made her heart beat faster; she was beginning to have feelings for the wolf. Candy didn’t look like she would be the affectionate type to Annie, with her wild pink streaked blue hair. Her arms were bare in the tank top she had on, showing arms that were muscular from beating away at her drums. Her shorts didn’t do much to cover up legs that were toned and strong from hours spent running.
Annie couldn’t help but wonder if the skin of her legs would be soft and smooth if she touched them. She blushed at the thought. It was strange for her to feel this way; she shook off the thought. After all her first lover had been a werewolf, stranger things happened. So what if the one she was thinking about now was a woman? Hormones were a crazy thing, and pregnancy ones had her feeling a whirlwind of emotions she wasn’t used to.
Turning away, Annie looked back at Abby. Watching the glowing light encircle her sister and the witches, before popping like a bubble. Coating them with fine sparkles of light that reminded her of sparklers and fireworks.
“It’s so pretty,” Candy whispered, Annie smiled at the wonderment in her voice.
“It is, isn’t it?” Annie bit her lower lip and looked back at Candy, her breath catching in her throat at the way the lights danced across her skin. She finally admitted to herself that she was drawn to the wolf. Something about Candy made it feel like the air was sucked from the room when she was around her.
Turning back to look at Abby, Annie smiled as the witches broke the circle and her mates went to her. She cringed when she saw Sam, her face flaming in embarrassment at his earlier words when he had brought her to the pack house.
Sam had looked between Candy and Annie, “Oh this is rich. At least you and your sister will stay within the same pack.”
“You said you’d help Abby, you plan to send us back with Beau?” Annie had felt fear well up in the pit of her stomach at the thought.
“Not what I meant,” Sam had said with a shrug, “Let’s just say you won’t be going back home after this.”
Annie looked down with a small smile as she thought about Annie hugging her. She squeezed Candy’s hand softly as she realized what Sam had meant.
They would be staying in the same pack.
Their mates were in the same pack and from the way the two dark-haired men clung to her sister’s side, she could tell that they were her mates. Sam pushed the two men aside and the one with longer hair to the side along with the alpha as he lifted Abby into his arms. Her sister slumping against him as she wrapped her fingers in the back of his shirt.
A small Latina woman with a warm smile stepped closer to Abby.
Candy gave Annie’s hand a quick squeeze. “That’s my mom.”
Annie smiled at the pride she could hear in her mate’s voice as she spoke about her mother.
“She looks nice.”
“She is, she’s a hard ass and that’s where I get it from.” Candy said smiling over at Annie.
Annie bit her lip thinking about her own parents, the pack and the coven they were tied with. She couldn’t help but worry they would come and try and take her and the babies home. Annie hoped Candy would be able to accept the babies. She didn’t think she would be able to handle it if her mate didn’t.
What if anyone came looking to take her back home? Or the children, once they realized that she wouldn’t be returning?
Abby was taken inside to rest and the remaining members of the pack had headed off to do other things.The witches were taken inside and give space to rest until Sam could teleport them home.Candy stood watching Annie as the dark-haired man spoke with her.His smell wasn’t as delicious as Annie’s but Candy still couldn’t help the way her wolf perked up at his soft scent.Almonds with something clean, like a citrus fruit and incenses that tickled her nose and made her think of magic.She walked closer to two of them. His voice was calm and soothing and she felt the same pull to him as she did to Annie.Candy bit her lip. How could this be?That she was drawn to both of them. She could feel her wolf brushing against the surface.The beast wanted out, wanted to go to its mates.The man turned his head, shaking his long hair over his shoulder as his indigo eyes met hers.Candy felt her pulse qui
Dinnerwas hadin comfortable conversation by the three.Stolas made his way up to talk to Sam while Candy walked Annie to her room.“Thank you for dinner,”Annie said with a slight blush staining her cheeks.“Anytime, I enjoyed cooking for you.”Candy said, she wanted to kiss Annie but didn’t want to scare her away.Stepping closer, Candy nervously fidgeted with the hem of her tank top. Annie looked up at her with wide blue eyes as she tucked a lock of hair behind her ear.She stepped closer to Candy, feeling the heat of her body through her thin t-shirt.“Is it okay, if I-“Annie said before looking down shyly.“Yes.”Candy blurted out as she leaned forward, pressing her lips to Annie’s soft lips.Annie sighed, feeling the sparks from before, the he
Candy tossed beneath the cotton sheets in the darkness of her room. The cold shower she had taken had done nothing to take away the need she felt. The longing to go to her mate, to take her. Claim her, to be claimed.Dragging her hands through her hair, she thought about what Annie’s words. Her mate had enjoyed her kiss, she reached up touching her lips. She could feel her cheeks heating with a blush as she thought about how Annie’s cheeks had flushed as her eyes had shined with arousal. Candy could feel the wetness pooling between her thighs as the need grew worse. Her wolf wanted her to go to her mate, to touch her. To taste her, it was a need she felt ingrained in her bones.Letting out a sigh of frustration she looked up at the ceiling kicking off her covers, her body felt like it was on fire. Begging to be touched. Closing her eyes, she thought about Annie and the kiss they
“I, I-“Annie stammered as Candy’s honey-colored eyes met hers.“You?” Candy asked, her lip twitching into a smirk as she felt her body responding to being close to her mate. The need to touch her had her fingers itching and her pulse racing.“I was just going to ask where the shower was?” Annie said biting her lip as a blush covered the tops of her cheeks.“Was that all you needed?” Candy asked as she bit her lower lip, a mischievous look in her eyes as she stepped closer to Annie. She brought her hands to Annie’s waist.“Yes,” Annie hissed out. Her body pulsing with need as she brought her hands up, tangling them in Candy’s colorful strands. She pressed her lips against Candy’s the kiss was a battle for dominance one that Candy easily accepted and relished in as A
Candy stilled her movements as she heard the cry slip past Annie’s lips.“Annie?” She asked, unsure of why her mate was crying.“Y, y, yeah?”“Did I do something wrong? I’ve never been with a woman before and if I did something wrong, please let me know.” Candy said as she sat up to look at her mate. Annie had her hands over her face as her shoulders shook.“No, no. You were perfect.” She said with a sob.“Then why are you crying baby?” Candy asked as she moved to lay beside Annie.“I just, I didn’t... I’ve never, it’s never felt that amazing before.” Annie said with a hiccuping sob.Candy gently grabbed Annie’s wr
Annie straightened the borrowed shirt that Drake had brought her as she followed Candy. Her nerves were frayed and she really didn’t want to go into the clinic.Didn’t want to face the physical proof on the screen that she was pregnant. The flutters and strange alien movements were enough for her. The ultrasound that she had done over a month ago was more than enough proof for her.Asking the pack’s doctor to keep her secret had been a gamble, it was one she was glad she had taken.Beau’s response to her pregnancy hadn’t been a joyous thing. Not that she had expected it to be. He had never raised his hand to her, but when she had told him it was the first time she had been afraid that he might strike her.Sure, he had been rough with her. At that moment though as
“Candy?” Doc said, tilting her head to the side as she looked at her daughter and the woman whose hand she was holding.“Mom, this is Annie.” Candy bit her lower lip as she looked at her mother. She wanted her mother to accept her mate, she wanted her mother to accept her.“Annie it’s nice to meet you. Why don’t you come on back?” Doc shook herself, returning to her professional bedside manner.Annie brought her hand up to her stomach. Looking from the doctor to her mate. She could feel the tension pouring from Candy. She didn’t need the bond in place to be able to see the change in the other woman.She could feel it in the way she gripped her hands, how Candy gulped, how her eyes moved from Annie to her mother.“I am,&
Stolas looked away from the game that he and Sam were playing. His friend was being quieter than normal.“What happened with the wolves and the vampire?” Stolas asked, looking back at the screen.“They wanted time with her.” Sam said with a frown as he watched the character toss a grenade with a smile. He needed this kind of destruction to pull his mind away from her face.Lilith had looked so betrayed as he had placed a hand on her shoulder and one on her chin.“So do you.”“All I’ve got is time, they don’t. Well, the half-breed does.” He said, his lip curling in disgust. “I’ll get her to myself soon enough.”“How will you manage with the others?” Stolas said, watching the screen
