Chapter 20


“So me and my brother are going bowling do you want to come?” Robin asked me after school. J and Eric were standing by my locker as we came closer to them. I turned my head to look at her.

“Yeah, that sound really fun can I bring a few friends?” I said excitedly. She gave me a duh face and nodded.

“It would be hella boring without other people.” Throwing an arm around my shoulder, pulling me down to her five foot three frame and whispered in my ear “Between you and me, my brother is a sour puss and is as boring as the history channel so I need entertainment, keep it lively.” Laughing I nodded. I looked up to see my bff’s looking at Robin with confused faces.

“Oh J, Eric, this is Robin and she invited me to go bowling. So you guys want to come?” Their faces lightened up.

“Hell yeah!” J jumped up and down while Eric shrugged nonchalantly.

“Yeah that’s cool.”

“Great, meet us at Al’s Bowling Palace at 7 clock! Seeya!” Robin called as she ran over to her brothers group of friends. Opening my locker I grabbed my bag and slammed it shut and walked toward the door.

“So I have dance at 3:30 but I’ll come as soon as I can k. I might be a little late.” J said with a guilty smile.

“That’s cool, Eric, you can take me right?’ I looked up to him. He wouldn’t make eye contact me,

“Well, I have swimming today; right now actually so I’m going to get back to you on that because coach likes to keep us late sometimes so...” Sighing I nodded.

“Ok, ok I get it. I’ll get my mom or dad to let me borrow their car” agreeing on that we headed to our destination which mine was outside waiting in the parking lot.

As I was heading down the hall towards the front door someone came around the corner causing me to collide into their chest. With quick reflexes they grabbed my arms, preventing me from keeping me from falling ass first on the ground. I knew immediately who it was, no one else could make my body tingle all over like Liam can. Peering up to meet his eyes I noticed he was smiling.

“We got to stop meeting like this” he teased.

“Haha” I giggled nervously, “My thoughts exactly.” I joked. I thought it would be weird between us after the other day and that hug.

“You going home.” he asked me stepping back. I nodded,

“Yeah my dad’s here to pick me up.” I told him hiking my bag further up my shoulder.

“Oh well I’ll let you get going, oh and are you still coming to the game tomorrow?” I could see a light blush creeping into his cheeks; which made me smile since I had the big bad jock blushing.

“I was never ‘not’ going to come” I hit his shoulder lightly. He smiled nodding.

“Good” he started to leave when I grabbed his arm. He turned to look at me,

“A bunch of us are going bowling tonight, I was wondering if you and your friend would like to come?” I asked timidly. He looked surprised for a second before a heart stopping smile graced his sexy lips.


“Cool, we’re going to be at Al’s Bowling Palace at 7” I said excitedly.

“Alright” he chuckled.

“I guess I’ll see you there.” I was walking backwards towards the front door as I couldn’t take my eye from him while he was standing there watching me amused.

“Alright, well be careful.”

“Be careful for wha - oof” I was cut off by backing into the closed front door.

“The door.” He laughed.

“Haha oh right.” I chuckled mortified blindly searching for the latch on the door. Finally I got it open and rushed out and running to my dad’s car, leaving a chuckling Liam.

I pulled up to the bowling alley in my dad’s ‘very’ expensive car. Locking the doors I pulled my phone out as I received a text from J saying she was going to be here in twenty. Eric already said he would be carpooling with her, while Liam and I never exchanged numbers so I don’t know if he was here or not. I walked up to the front door and I spotted Robin instantly. She was standing there wearing leopard skinny pants and a white shirt that was torn at the shoulder with the words ‘Grrr’. I snickered at it.

Her long red hair looked like she just got out of bed. Sex hair! Next to her was her brother, his messy brown hair was hanging in his face, he wore green neon skinnies and a black shirt with ‘Up Yours’ on it. Nice…

I stopped in front of them.

“Hey.” I said, Robin threw herself in my arms giving me a huge hug.

“Yay your here!” She screamed in my ear.

Quickly I backed away from her, wincing holding my ear. DAMN! Why are all the girls in my life banshee women?

“Yep” I muttered.

“Where is everyone?” She asked glancing around.

“They’re on their way, Eric and J are carpooling.” I told her as we walked in the building.

“Cool, cool” she said excited.

“Oh, I also invited two others, they should be here soon.”

“Yay, a full house.” she said jumping up and down. “This is going to be so fun!”

I saw her brother rolling his eyes behind her. He was really cute, not as cute as Liam; no Liam wasn’t even cute he was a Greek god. But Caleb was pretty hot himself.

“I’m Caleb by the way.” he reached out his hand towards me. I shook it,

“I know.”

“Of course” he said with a smile.

I noticed he had guy eyeliner around his eyes. Normally I wouldn’t find that sexy but on him it was working.

“So you’re gay.” It wasn’t a question, so I looked up at him since he was about three inches taller than me.

“Yep and your gay?” I asked even though I already knew. Smirking he bent down to my ear,

“I think you know that too.” He whispered seductively.

I caught my breath at his proximity; I felt a little uncomfortable but pushed it back. Someone cleared their throat and I snapped my head in their direction while Caleb backed up. I saw a hard faced Liam standing there glaring at Caleb like he was ready to kill. Confused I backed away from Caleb and headed over to him.

“You made it.” I said excited. He tore his eyes from Caleb and gazed down at me, his face softening.

“I told you I would.” Robin pushed passed her brother and stood next to me.

“You’re the extras he invited?” She asked awe struck. Liam glanced over to Dom before nodding.

“I guess.” they said.

“Cool… you’re paying for yourselves right?” She asked sweetly, chuckling they nodded again.

“Well let’s get those shoes on!” she rushed over to the cashier, paying for her brother and herself. Following her I pulled out my wallet till a hand appeared over my head handing the guy a twenty.

“That’s for both of us.” Liam told him. I turned to face him,

“You didn’t have to do that, I could have paid for myself.” I said stubbornly. But all he did was smirk,

“What’s your shoes size?” He asked. Pouting I crossed my arms.

“Seven” I muttered. His smirk widened.

“Can I get a size seven and a size eleven” he chuckled. I narrowed my eyes at him.

“What the hell’s so funny?” He handed me my shoes.

“You’re so small.” he teased. I snatched the shoes from him.

“Yeah... Well… at least I don’t have dinosaur feet.” I snapped walking off to where Robin and Caleb were getting things stated. I can hear Liam’s deep laugh behind me and I ignored the shivers going down my spine in delight. I took a seat next to Caleb while we put in all the names. I heard a growl but ignored it thinking it someone’s stomach. Someone is seriously hungry.

After what seemed like ‘FOREVER’ I turned to see J and Eric heading over to us.

“Hey peoples” J said giving me a hug. She was wearing a neon orange ‘Dance is my life’ t-shirt that I gave her for her birthday a while back. Eric supped everyone as he sat in one of the plastic chairs.

“Took you years to get here” I said sitting next to her.

“Yeah dude I was a sweaty mess. Dance was brutal” she said. I looked over to Robin and noticed her checking out my bestie… wait. Did she have a crush on J already!?

“I would have loved to see that” Robin said flirtatiously confirming my suspicions. I had a wide smile as J looked at her with amusement.

“Okay” she said slowly. “Let’s get this competition going.” she exclaimed changing the subject. Everyone agreed.

“Can we do teams?” Eric asked.

“Yeah that sounds fun” J said.

“Ok teams of three or two? One group will have either three or two in theirs” Robin said.

“Two” we agreed, so the teams were,

Eric and Caleb.

Liam and me.

Jeanine, Dom and Robin.

Dom asked to be paired with J before anyone could choose teams and Robin was next to choose. Then Liam who called for me, much to a very annoyed Caleb. I just blushed, why did Liam want to pair up with me so badly?

Eric and Caleb were up first.

Eric got a strike right from the start, Caleb knocked down half of them then the other half. J knocked one of them down and got a gutter ball next. Robin patted her back saying she did well. Standing there Robin held her hot pink ball in front of a perfect face concentration and with pro form, knocked them all down. We gave her a much deserved clap. She bowed to us before sitting close to J. I noticed that Dom was giving her a serious narrow eyed glare before grabbing a black ball. And with the same form, he threw the ball and we watched as he got a strike before sitting on the other side of J, placing his arm around her chair.

If I didn’t know any better I would say Dom was trying to stake his claim on my bff right now. Then Liam stood, I watched as he grab a brown ball and with as much grace as a cat he effortlessly had his ball glide down the lane hitting all the pins. We clapped as he sat down like it was nothing. I went up next and grabbed my electric blue ball. I stood there staring down the long lane and I suddenly I remembered, I suck at bowling. Gulping I stuck my fingers in the holes and held it up with my other hand. Pulling my arm back I swung, letting the ball go and watching with a sinking gut as it went straight into the gutter.

I heard everyone clapping and encouraging me to try again. I walked over to the ball thing and waited for my ball to come back. My gaze wondered over to Liam as he gave me a smile and a nod of encouragement. I grabbed my ball and headed back hoping for at least one pin. Nope it went right into the gutter AGAIN! Sighing I sat back down as everyone said I would get it next time.


Liam patted my arm and I smiled up at him.

“It’s ok we all get gutter balls once in a while” he reassured me.


It was almost the middle of the game and Liam had nothing but high scores, mostly strikes, same with Dom. They were like robots; they always got a high score. While everyone else got human scores… well beside me, I only hit about three pins so far. I felt like a loser, I was making us lose badly. And the only reason we were tied with Eric’s team was because of Liam.

We decided to take a little brake to eat a snack. I really wanted a blue slushy and a soft pretzel. Liam offered to get it so I gave him the money and he took it making his way to the snack bar. I looked over at the scores while everyone was gone and saw that our team was tied with Dom’s so I didn’t object.

“So are you a party boy” Caleb asked sitting back in his seat sipping on his coke; his deep brown eyes peering into my blue ones.

“Um… not really… not anymore.” I muttered the last part to myself but he heard.

“I would love for you to come party with me sometime, or a lot.” He said flicking his hair from his eyes.

“I don’t think so.” I softly declined. He gave me a white toothed sexy smile and he leaned further in his seat resting his elbows in his knees.

“Come on it’ll be fun, I’m a pretty chill guy you’ll enjoy yourself, promise.” There was something about his calm deep voice that had me nodding my head.

“I don’t know if I should.” I told him shyly. He nodded his gaze traveling down my body as he licked his lips,

“Well, know that I’ll be waiting for an answer.” I blushed deeply.

Liam came back handing me my slushy and money. Shaking my head at the money he was supposed to use I rolled my eyes and thanked him as I looked back to see everybody still waiting in line. Caleb stood and headed to the bathroom. I turned to Liam as he was glaring at Caleb’s back. I pushed his shoulder gently causing him to looked at me,

“Why do you keep giving him death glares?” I asked him.

He shook his head ignoring my question as he glanced at the bowling lane. Standing up he looked down at me.

“Come here I’m going to give you a few pointers.” he said gabbing my ball. I sighed as I walked over to him.

“Liam, I suck, there is no teaching the hopeless.” chuckling he handed me my ball.

“Shut up and listen.” I stood in front of the lane while he took his place behind me. A little too close I might add. I could felt his body heat on my back while he generously gave me pointers. He touched my arm sending sparks through it as he lifted it up, I almost dropped the ball.

“See you need is to put a little strength and precision into it.” he instructed softly in my ea,r causing my breath to come up short. “Lift your arms and line the ball with the middle pin” he instructed his hot breath caressing my neck, I could melt right now. But instead I did what I was told.

“Plant your feet, that’s important too.” his voice a little husky.

“Okay.” I breathed, licking at my drying lips.

I spread my legs apart and held my arms up. He reached down to pull my right leg back; his searing hand lingered on my thigh longer than necessary. Walking over to my other side I looked up at him under my lashed. I bit my lip waiting for more instructions. He tilted his head gazing at me for a while before leaning down to my ear.

“Now hit the target.” he breathed his lips touching my ear. My knees nearly gave as I released the ball. I was surprised that it didn’t go straight to the side but went down the whole lane, hitting the pin next to the middle one and half the pins went down. I stood there shocked as I stared at what I just did.

“See, all you needed was a little help” Liam said smiling down at him and a big grin spread on my face. It felt awesome to finally hit more than one damn pin. I jumped onto Liam wrapping my arms around his neck tightly without thinking.

“Thank you!” I exclaimed over and over. I could hear him give out a breathy laugh as he wrapped his arms around my waist holding me against him.

“You’re welcome” he said his face nuzzled in my neck causing me to shiver from the pleasure of his skin on mine.



He jumped into my arms pressing his body against mine and I almost lost it. I know I was playing with fire when I was teaching him but I couldn’t help but tease him a little. To watch him squirm and shutter with the sound of my voice, to see him lose breath with only my touch but now I was paying for it. Burring my face in his neck I ran my nose along his soft skin where his scent almost over powered me. I took a deep breath escaping in his sweet smell with a hint of axe cologne. Everything around me disappeared as I tightened my hold with one arm and I used my other to curl my fingers in his soft hair. Pulling his head in to my shoulder I quickly had easy access to where his neck met his shoulder.

The place I would bite to make him mine

“Aiden.” I groaned into him.

He tensed his arms around my neck as my breathing hitched and my lower half hardened. I couldn’t help it he felt and smelt so intoxicating. My tongue ran along the base of his neck, readying him for my mark.

“Ah” he moaned, “Liam.” he panting.

I could tell his body was going wild waiting for my bite as was mine. Every fiber of my being was pulling me closer to him. I kissed along his neck, his hands buried into my hair causing me to growl. I sucked and kiss listening to his moans like it was my favorite song.

Slowly I clamped my teeth on his neck, teasing his skin with my extended canines. Being in this position really made be think that all I needed to do was add pressure. And as if my body was listening I began to do just that, my jaw tightened and pressure was put on the base of his tender neck. My eyes opened slightly to see myself in the mirror wall on the far side of the lane only to catch my glowing yellow eyes staring back at me. And canines against my mate obliviously sweet skin as he withered in pleasure.

Reality came crashing back as my blissful feelings evaporating. Breathing hard, I set Aiden on his feet, keeping my face in his neck trying to force my wolf back; it was much harder to do this time. He had been so close to marking his mate and he really didn’t like me interference. Taking a deep breath savoring my mate’s scent as I backed away from him. His eyes were half closed and it was almost physically painful to pull away from.

“Aiden” I said softly. His eyes widened and his deep blush caused me to smile.

“Sorry.” his sweet inaudible voice said. That was when everyone came back and the game continued.

Dom was giving me knowing glances while Aiden was doing better at hitting the pins. But I couldn’t focus on that, I just couldn’t stop looking at him. My wolf almost won tonight, I regretted telling Aiden to come to my game because I knew for sure there was no way in hell I could stop my wolf then and the full moon was tomorrow. I noticed Aiden glancing at me curiously in the corner of his eye.

The moment the game was over I was kind of eager to head home. I watched Dom place his hand on J’s lower back as he guided her over to the car for a word. I frowned, there was something going on with them. Turning back I saw that Caleb guy giving Aiden a piece of paper. With a winking he walked away with his sister and I suppressed the growl trapped in my throat.

Who the hell does he think he is flirting with my mate! Stashing the paper in his pocket Aiden walked to his car which I was standing by. He came to stand in front of me.

“Uh… thanks for coming Liam, it was fun.” he said his face flushed and looking down at the floor as he talked to me. Grinning I stepped in front him lifting his chin up to look at me.

“It was my pleasure.” his beautiful blue eyes looking so innocent. Capturing his bottom lip between his teeth he averting his gaze from me. Groaning I pulled my hand away from his electric skin, he’s going to be the death of me.

“Get home safe, I want to see you at my game tomorrow.” I teased.

He nodded and shyly got in his car and I watched him drive off. I felt Dom behind me and I turned to face him.

“You almost lost it tonight, didn’t you?” He said his eyes shining. I nodded, sighing.

“It’s going to happen tomorrow and theirs nobody to stop me. He’s too strong.” I said refusing to my wolf. Dom stuffed his hands in his pockets and shook his head.

“I know what you mean.” he said looking at something over my shoulder. I furrowed my brows,

“What are you talking about” I asked confused.

“Jeanine, she my mate.” he said his brown gaze meeting my shocked one.
