:I don’t think you have to worry, my mate: Hunter’s voice was gentle, calm in her mind. :I know your nervous, but Sally is mostly infatuated with you. Please trust her:
And her husband disappeared into the bedroom where the ensuite was.
Celeste nuzzled against Sally’s neck, breathing in her scent of burning bushland, even heavier with the arousal pulsing through her.
“There’s more?” Sally breathed, sounding a little overwhelmed.
Celeste chuckled, lifting herself head a little to kiss her lips languishely. “Let’s take this to the bedroom, my poor little human.”
Sally managed a pout, but allowed Celeste to lead her by the hand from the couch. Celeste knew she shouldn’t be nervous, nothing in Sally’s manner said she’d worry at all how Celeste looked between her legs. It didn’t appease the worry though.
She’d been so happy when Hunte
The ladies showered, but one after another. Hunter was sure they were exhausted after the late night and then the excitement of the day. The Clan didn’t do things in halves, that was for sure.Hunter snuck down stairs to get them some sandwiches, they had all missed lunch. He was lucky, he passed very few Clan members on his journey. He shouldn’t have been surprised his luck didn’t last as he got ready to leave the kitchen with the food and some bottles of water.“So what’s up with you two and your PA?” Tyler stood in the doorway. He’d obviously been out with the rest of the Clan, just left in his pants and his tattoos. His arms were crossed over his chest. Hunter was happy to note it didn’t appear to be angry, just curious.“How about a big lot of ‘Noneya’? As in ‘None ya business’?”Tyler’s eyes rolled, “I get it’s none of my business. Just
Yuki looked at her in something akin to disbelief. “I thought you were on death’s bed yesterday, but not only are you ‘well’ enough to head out today but you were gone most of yesterday to. Spill wench! What’s going on?”Sally cringed. Her best friend was too perceptive. She stood before her, ready to head off to her classes with her backpack slung over her shoulder. Yuki huffed a piece of her white and black hair out of her face, glaring at her.Sally decided mostly truth was the safe way to go.“Hunter took me out, we met up with Celeste. There were sandwiches,” Sally didn’t get any further before Yuki gave an exited chirp and jumped at her.“I thought it must’ve gone junk the other night when you didn’t tell me all about it yesterday, but look at you, stud! Two lovers? I’d be super jealous if it didn’t sound like a tonne of work,” Yuki gushed exc
For Celeste, Saturday took too long to arrive. In the end she knew it was only two days, but it was two days full of appointments and meetings that meant she couldn't spend the time she wanted to with Sally. Not that she didn't sneak dalliances here and there. She'd noticed Hunter had to. She could smell the Lion on her when she'd found Sally in the break room Thursday afternoon. His scent hung around her and there was no way Celeste could help herself from pushing Sally up against the table and lifting her face up to sample those sweet lips.Sally, to her credit had clung to her jacket's lapels and molded her small form to Celeste's curves.The whole two days was a battle between the three of them, dancing around each other but never actually meeting all together. Celeste made sure of it. She wanted to give Sally the time she needed to come to terms with everything without having to worry about being influenced by the mate bond any more then necessar
Hunter loved the spot they chose. He let Celeste drive so he could sit in the back with Sally and wind her long hair around his hands. Sally wasn’t exactly idle, even belted in her hand skimmed over the seam of his slacks. Every time her questing hand went just a little too high, Celeste would growl lowly and they’d smirk at each other.Sally liked to tease and Hunter enjoyed pandering to her slightest whim. The fact that Celeste couldn’t do much about it only amused him more. He could practically see her running a cost analysis to hire a chauffeur everywhere so she didn’t have to miss out.“Where are you taking me?” Sally caved after the city gave way to farm land. There was bush land ahead and she angled her head to see it better.“Not much further now,” Hunter laughed. “Just a little patch we own that backs onto the same bushland as the Clan house.”“And I don’t have to worry
It had been a surreal week. Sally sighed, enjoying the bath Celeste had drawn her. New job, lusting after her bosses, finding out shifters existed and that she had a mate. She watched bubbles from the soap pop on her skin, love at first sight was a thing and a thing that happened to her.THAT was probably the hardest thing to come to terms with. Having a mate meant there was someone out their destined for everyone, or at least every shifter anyway. What happened if your mate was homophobic? Maybe their religion meant you couldn’t be together? Or was abusive?What if somewhere you were stuck with the person you meant to be with and all they did was ruin you, day in, day out?Sally hugged her knees, grateful Celeste and Hunter didn’t appear to be inclined to be that way, but they’d only known each other a week.“What’s got a frown on your face like that?” Celeste joined her, passing her the glass of water she&
“How about you tell me when you’re going to mark me?”Celeste stopped the spatula from crashing to the floor by sheer force of will rather then anything else. Her mate’s were going to be the death of her she decided ruthfully. Both of them were going to keep her on her toes forever, she decided. Hopefully they never decided to pool their forces, but Celeste was sure it was only a matter of time before that happened.She put the spatula down, deciding working on dinner at this point would be a hopeless endeavour and pinned her young mate with her gaze. Celeste crossed her arms over her chest, watching Sally closely.“And why would you want to know that little Mate?”The scent of her arousal flooded the room and Celeste had to bite back a grown at the smokey wave that passed over her. Sally liked her voice gruff and growly apparently and Celeste tucked that thought away for later use.Sally bit her bottom lip
When it finally happened, Luna was having dinner with the rest of the Clan who lived at the Clan house. Of all the changes that had happened in recent times, the acquisition of the bigger Clan Lands was the one with the least amount of push back.Luna could understand her sister's anger in regards to that. It certainly made the Old guard of the Elders seem like a materialistic lot. They were, Luna had conceded with her twin on that. They wanted what was best for the Clan, but got bogged in their own comfort as being what was best for everyone. But they had lived long, and they were the stories of the Clan.Luna gave them the respect their age and wisdom deserved, while Celeste fought with them over every change that was made.She was talking to her seat mate when Celeste's joyous voice cried out through the matriarch bond.:Welcome my new Mate Sally to the Clan:Whilst the yips and yowls filled her mind and the air surrounding her, Luna
For the week after her evening with Celeste, work was intriguing.Celeste had warned her that being mated to each other was not something she would be able to hide from the Clan. As Sally understood it she was going to mind link them, with Sally's permission. It didn't make any sense to not tell them; there was no way she would be able to hide the mark from them.That had become obvious when Hunter had arrived at the apartment with the Chinese they would have for dinner. He had known, but upon entering he had stalked across the space to Sally in the lounge room, taking her into his arms. He had kissed her within an inch of her life, leaving her breathless before burying his nose against the already healed scar tissue."You smell like Celeste," he'd murmured reverently. "I didn't think you could smell any more amazing."He had sat on an arm chair alone, watching them hungrily through out dinner. Sheepishly he told Sally he didn't think he'd be able to cont
