I watched as my wife said her goodbye before she approached me. Her emerald green eyes meeting my blue ones. I wrapped my arm around her, pulling her to me, knowing that people were still looking at us. The woman was doing her best to act normal despite being forced into this just as I was.
“Smile, little wolf, people are still watching” I whispered before hugging her and kissing her forehead. She put her hand on my chest, right over my beating heart, and I smiled. People took us pictures and the two of us made sure to make our pictures look as presentable as possible. We both knew that our wedding would be spoken of everywhere, being who I was, the two of us knew that we had to hold our proper image.
“Thank you for the unneeded reminder” she said pushing me away. I kept my arm wrapped around her as we both walked toward the limo. Her mum was headed to the airport as to head back to London. I had tried getting the woman to stay back beside her daughter knowing that she would be staying alone there, but it seemed like the woman had her own plans, and whatever they were; she didn’t bother sharing them with me. But I wasn’t blind as not to see that her and her daughter didn’t have the best of relationships.
“Natalia, are you sure it’s a good idea that your mother leaves alone? She would be staying alone there…”
“It’s her desire, you know that, Damien. Thank you for the offer though” she said before the two of us turned to leave. I looked at her mother one last time before opening the car’s door for her. She got inside the car and I got inside after her, the two of us waving at the guests as the driver took off. The man kept his eyes on the road and I knew for fact that he was waiting to listen to something as to give mom as information; it was why she had hired him to drive us to begin with. However, mother didn’t know that I had my car parked upfront at the hotel, waiting for my and my wife’s arrival as to dismiss her little spy.
The two of us went quiet for most of the drive, and I smirked putting my hand on hers, running my finger over her palm making her tense “we just eloped, malyshka, I believe that you should brighten up. We’ll be mating soon…”
“Don’t you think that us mating when we barely know one another would be wrong?” She asked as she looked at the driver. I closed the window between us, not letting him hear what we were talking about, giving my ‘wife’ and I our privacy. I looked at her and she looked down on her lap avoiding my eyes.
I put my finger under her chin, leaning closer to her, wanting to feel her lips against my own. Our kiss on the wedding was a mere peck, but the spark that I felt was one like no other; I couldn’t help but feel whole when it happened. I could tell that she was resisting the attraction, her mind was fixed on the fact that she couldn’t find a mate; she didn’t want to give anyone the chance to actually be with her.
“You need to relax, malyshka, you tensing the way you are wouldn’t change anything. You’re already my wife” I whispered against her lips. My lips brushed hers, our breaths mixing before she pulled away. I smirked as her heart raced against her ribcage before she sat back, crossing her arms over her chest.
“Keep resisting, little wolf. You’ll be claimed as my own eventually”
“You need to understand one thing, Damien” she said glaring at me. I raised an eyebrow at her, waiting for her to proceed as her heart raced against her ribcage as she took a deep breath to calm herself “if you’re expecting me to submit to you, then you’ll need to think again”
“And you’ll need to understand something, little wolf” I said raising an eyebrow at her “if I’m being lenient with you as not to claim you in this car right now; then it’s because I want you to be comfortable. But don’t test your luck with me, I’m an Alpha, and you know what that means”
The two of us entered the hotel’s room.
Our parents have arranged for us to be alone. It was for us to complete the mating, but they didn’t understand that I couldn’t claim the woman when she couldn’t handle it. It was something that we both needed to be prepared for, and I would want her to want it just as much as I did.
I looked at the view and couldn’t help but smile at the sight of it. The room was looking over the whole city, and I couldn’t help but feel excited to see the city view at night. The hotel was one of the businesses we owned, but seeing as mom arranged it for the two of us. I saw Natalia looking out the window as well, the view catching her breath.
“I’ll leave you to change, if you need anything just let me know” I said softly. She jumped at the sound of my voice before turning to face me, looking down at her feet, avoiding my eyes and I sighed “don’t worry, Natalia, I won’t do anything that you’re not comfortable with. I don’t take a woman against her will, go and get ready, the two of us will go and have dinner; I’m guessing that you’re hungry”
“Thank you” she whispered, her heart racing against her ribcage as she looked around the room, clearly noticing that there was one bed in the suit.
I nodded not saying a word as I watched her taking her bag to the bathroom with her, locking the door after her and I sighed sitting on the edge of the bed. The urge to claim her was high, the way she avoided my eyes, her shy figure, her eyes looking into my own, and knowing that she was a virgin, I should thank her mother for that little detail, made my wolf growl protectively as I knew that she was mine to claim and mine alone.
She opened the bathroom’s door and I frowned in confusion when I saw that she was still in her wedding dress “can you please help me with the zipper? I couldn’t get it off”
I nodded and vampire sped behind her making her gasp, her body tensing as my finger brushed her back. I pulled her to me gently, my breath hitting her shoulder as I leaned closer to her. I could hear her heart racing against her ribcage and I had to fight back turning her around to claim her as my own.
“There you go” I whispered letting her go once the zipper was opened.
“Thank you” she said turning the face me before heading to the bathroom. She held on her dress as for it not to fall, and I was thankful for that; had it fell, I wouldn’t have been able to control myself.
“You’re welcome, little wolf” I said once she closed the door “you’re welcome”
Natalia:“Where are we going again?” I asked Damien who was driving. I didn’t even know when he brought his car considering the fact that his driver was the one who dropped us off here.“One of our restaurants. It has been closed for the evening for the two of us, and I figured we could have a ‘romantic’ dinner on our first wedding night” Damien said casually.“So, the big mafia Leonov Pakhan is closing a restaurant for a romantic date with a wife he didn’t want?” I asked raising an eyebrow at the man. Damien sighed and parked the car in front of the restaurant, looking me in the eye.“You do know that being Pakhan doesn’t make me a barbarian, Natalia” Damien answered getting out of the car. He vampire sped toward my side of the door, opening it for me “come on, little wolf”“Stop calling me that” I snapped at him.“I’ll call you
Damien:“I hope you’re not doing anything to mess your night up” mom said through the phone. Natalia went to the bathroom and I sighed when mom called me for the fifth time tonight. It was hard enough controlling myself around the girl, but it seemed like my beloved mother didn’t seem to want to understand that I wasn’t a barbarian on the loose.“I am not a child for you to check on every few hours, mother. But if it would assure you, I haven’t killed the woman” I snapped through the phone. I could hear mom growl through the phone, but I didn’t bother responding to it “Now, I need to hang up before she gets out of the bathroom”I hung up and put my phone in my pocket just as Natalia got out of the bathroom, smiling as she looked at me. I nodded smiling at her. The woman didn’t understand it yet, but she has been the one person who has made me feel content in years, and I am a person who has
Natalia:I frowned in confusion when I opened my eyes to find that I was sleeping on the bed.“Good morning, little wolf” Damien’s voice broke my trail of thoughts. His back was to me as he took a sip of what I could sniff out as whiskey.“Isn’t it too early to be drinking?” I asked.“I don’t know, is it?” He asked sarcastically. He got up from the couch and turned to face me, his eyes hard unlike they were last night. However, I couldn’t blame him, the argument we had before I slept gave me a hard time getting some shut eye. I removed the blanket from over my body, and glared at him.“Need I ask why I was asleep on the bed?” I knew that my question took the man off guard as he seemed to frown in confusion that I was angry about that. But he didn’t seem to understand that it was HIS bed, and I didn’t nee him acting like a gentleman.“Oh, I’m sorry
Damien:“Do you think it’s too much?” Natalia asked turning around, showing me the blue dress, she wore. She already fixed her makeup, and curled her hair, and was now wearing the dress. The sleeveless dress hugged her body perfectly from the top before loosening under her waist. The slit on the dress reached her mid thigh making it more comfortable for her to walk.“Not at all, malyshka” I said smiling. I was already wearing my suit’s shirt, and pants, my jacket and tie were left on the couch as I fixed my sleeves.“Can I ask a question?” She asked avoiding my eyes, her cheeks reddening.“You know that you don’t need to ask the same question whenever you have one, right?” I teased. Natalia smiled, shaking her head at me “tell me, sweetie?”“What does malyshka mean?” She asked shyly “you kept calling me that, but I don’t really know what it means&r
Natalia:I looked at Damien as he walked out of the veranda. The man’s eyes were filled with rage, not to mention his racing heartbeat which I could hear due to my sensitive hearing.Damien wrapped his arm around my shoulder the second he reached me, his eyes not meeting mine; though I could hear his racing heart.“Alpha” Sebastian, his beta said looking at him. His brown eyes met my husband’s blue ones, clearly waiting for him to give him whatever other order he wanted to give. Damien, despite having his arm wrapped around me, clenched and unclenched his fist as an attempt to calm himself down.“I want you to check the whole building for the bastard. I don’t want him in the perimeter, and if you do spot him; throw him out, or kill him. Both options work fine for me” Damien said angrily. Sebastian nodded not saying another word as Damien pulled me from where I was standing, walking around the gala as he scanned th
Damien:“What is this place?” Natalia asked looking around the outdoor restaurant I took her to. Her eyes were wide when she saw the table the waiter guided us toward, and having left her jacket at the gala, it was my fault for liking her scent on mine and refusing to go back and getting hers, she was wearing my jacket.I pulled out her chair and watched as she took a seat, smiling at her calm heartbeat before kissing the crown of her head. She let out a breathy laugh as I did, and I walked toward my chair, sitting in front of her. The dim lights around us made the scene a whole lot more romantic than it already was. Flowers were placed on every table as well as candles, the floor was also covered with petals which swarmed around us with the wind giving it a magical aroma.“This, my beauty, is one of the best romantic spots here at New York. I figured since I ruined the night at the gala, might as well make use of it since the night is still yo
Natalia:“Are you sure you’re okay with this, Natalia?” Damien asked cupping my cheeks, making me look at him.“I want to officially meet the family, Damien. Plus, it’s been two weeks since we both got married; I believe that we’ve had enough of a ‘honeymoon’ as it is” I teased. Damien got a call from his mum last night asking him to come home, whatever the reason was; Damien hasn’t discussed it with me, and in all honesty; I didn’t even ask. As for meeting the family, I have barely seen Isabella when they had proposed to me, and my one conversation with Lyov was him asking me whether I was sure about this wedding or not. Sebastian and I spoke at the wedding, and other than that; I was somewhat isolated from everyone, merely seeing them with mum, and making sure that I was on my best behavior as not to ruin the chances of the wedding.Damien nodded, letting me go to close the last bag before wrapp
Damien:“Natalia, you will need…”“I am not like the other women in your Estate, Liz. I must thank you for your offer, but I know that Damien would not go ahead looking at other women. Had he wanted it, he wouldn’t have married me to begin with” I heard Natalia stopping Liz. I smiled as I listened to what she said before knocking the door twice, breaking their conversation. Whatever it was they were talking about, I didn’t like it, and it seemed to annoy Natalia too.Natalia opened the door for me, smiling as I wrapped my arm around her waist, pulling her to my chest “I suggest that you don’t fill my beauty’s head with mom’s nonsense, Liz. You of all people should know that mom did try bringing in other women, and they were all sent back just as they came”“Alpha…”“My love and respect for you are endless, Liz; however, as a friend, I suggest that you
