“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 been around a lot of women before her. She looked at me and frowned in confusion seeing my change of mood; however, I didn’t want her getting worried, nor did I want to ruin our night.
“Do you want to go back? It’s already late as it is” I said getting up from my chair. She nodded and I vampire sped toward her, wrapping my arm around her waist as I pulled her to me. Her racing heart making it harder for me to contain myself. She looked me in the eye as I faced her, and I had to fight the urge to connect my lips to her pink plump ones. Her body heating as she blushed.
Forcing myself to hold my self control, the two of us walked to the car in silence, both being tired from this long day, and from my side; I just wanted a little peace. With everything that I was forced into for the past two weeks; I believed that I deserved a little break, and that break also included a little silence.
I was thankful for Natalia laying her head on the window as I drove us back to the hotel. I didn’t want a driver to go driving us here and there as to make sure that we at least got our privacy as we got to know one another. Had I allowed a driver to be the one to drive us wherever we were going; I knew that he would end up sending everything we did to mom.
I wrapped my arms around Natalia as we got out of the car, and headed toward the hotel’s door. The two of us still had a figure to hold, and an image to keep from scratching, and if people were to believe that our wedding was real; the two of us needed to act accordingly until we’ve mated.
“Can I ask something?” Natalia asked once the two of us entered the suite. I hummed in response, waiting for her question “why did your parents organize this wedding? Don’t you have a mate? Or at least can find a potential mate?”
“They think that I got out of control, they want me to calm down, I guess. At least, that’s what mom told me before she brought you into this” I answered honestly, avoiding the question that I didn’t want to answer. Natalia nodded, not dwelling on the subject. She sat on the chair beside the door and took her heels off, putting them in the shoe closet by the door. I vampire sped toward her, towering her body and running my finger over her jawline, my words playing back in my mind.
“And you know, she wasn’t wrong” I whispered to her, leaning closer to her until our breaths mixed. My wolf getting restless as the desire to mate the woman who I was destined to spend my life with stood near. Her body tensed for a second as I pressed my lips against hers, kissing her. It took her a second to kiss me back, but the second she did, I vampire sped toward the bed, pushing her down to lay on it. I hovered her body, resting my weight on my arms either side of her head as I deepened the kiss.
“You’re so fucking beautiful” I whispered kissing her neck, easily finding her sweet spot before softly biting her earlobe, loving the smell of her rising arousal. Natalia moaned at the contact, her eyes rolling to the back of her head in satisfaction. I ran my finger over her body, feeling her curves, smirking against her neck as she wrapped her arms around my neck, wanting me to deepen the kiss. I spread her legs using my thigh, grinding myself against her, making her feel my want for her.
“Natalia, if I don’t stop now, I’m claiming you as my own” I whispered, forcing myself to pull away. I rested my forehead against her own, trying to calm myself as my wolf’s need grew at the smell of her arousal, my instinct wanting to get the best of me. She blushed under me and I couldn’t help but smile as I saw the reaction that I managed to get out of her. I laid by her side, looking at her for a second too long, softly running my finger over her jawline. Admiring my innocent beauty who laid by my side.
“How about you go change into something comfortable for bed, then the two of us can sleep” I said and Natalia nodded. She got out of bed and went to get her clothes from her bag before heading to the bathroom leaving me alone with the problem that I had to handle.
I knew that I needed to keep myself controlled as not to frighten the woman. But the way she kissed me back, gave in to my touch even; it told me that I wasn’t the only one who felt the way that I did. The woman may have been trying to resist my touch, but she too felt the same spark.
I watched as Natalia walked out of the bathroom, wearing her sweat pants and shirt. She folded her dress, putting it back inside her bag. She stood in the middle of the room, looking at the bed and I smiled at her innocence, sitting up and tapping the spot beside me “you do know that it’s OUR bed, Natalia”
“But the two of us barely know one another to share a bed”
“You are my wife, Natalia. Whether you want to admit it or not, the two of us got married today” I said looking her in the eye.
“We haven’t mated yet, and being wolves, that human wedding meant nothing to either one of us” Natalia said glaring at me. I frowned in confusion at her change of demeanor but didn’t bother responding to her, waiting for her next move. However, I was surprised when she walked to the closet and brought out the spare pillow and blanket.
“I’ll be sleeping on the couch, have a goodnight, Alpha”
I growled in anger at what she said, to think that I believed for a second that she was giving in to me. Her words playing back in my head as she laid on the couch, ignoring my anger.
Focus, Damien, just a little patience…
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
Natalia:“Hey” Liz said entering the room.“Hi” I smiled. She came a while after Damien left, having knocked the door; I already knew it was her as I caught her scent.“I was wondering whether or not you wanted to help us with lunch? I know you’re a bride, but it could help kill time instead of just staying here, and it would be a chance to meet the family as you do?” Liz suggested. I smiled and nodded. Having learned how to cook and bake as a kid, it was something that I both loved doing and had to do as I worked as a waitress and chef to ensure that I could afford going to college; however, that was something that the Leonov family most probably didn’t know.I fixed my shirt and pants. Having showered and changed my clothes after Damien left, I was now wearing sweat pants and a normal V-neck shirt, my hair was tied in a bun, and the only jewel I wore was the wedding ring Damien gave me on our wedding day.<
Damien:“What do you mean, new partner?” I asked glaring at Alberto who showed me a shares contract. My eyes widened and I had to fight back ripping the paper in half as I read through it knowing that he had the original copy of it anyway.“Aunt Isabella sold me a part of her shares of the hotel, and I am now your new partner” Alberto said calmly. Him, Christopher, and I were inside my office right now, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the soundproof walls of this office.“That explains why you showed up at the wedding being confident” I said angrily. Christopher’s eyes met mine and he shook his head at me not wanting me to make any sudden movements. He knew my anger, and he knew that I could easily try shooting the man, and it didn’t matter to me whether or not we were inside the office.“Exactly, it seems like your beloved mother would do anything to fix her relationship with mamma, and beli
