Chapter 8


I felt like my skin was on fire all night. All I could think of was my mate a few rows down and his intoxicating smell. It was a mixture of fabric softener and fragrant shower gel but there was an unknown sweet smell. Compared to him Gee smelt like hot sewage and she was sitting right next to me. So here I am sitting in a movie theater paying no attention to the movie I paid for, instead I was staring at the back of the most handsome head I have ever seen. He was fidgeting a lot making his scent come off him in waves traveling towards me, giving me a painful tightening in my groin. I could feel my eyes changing as I suppressed a growl, shaking my head I sat straighter in my seat. Georgina placed her hand over mine,

“Babe, are you ok?” She whispered squeezing my hand in hers, I resisted the urge to snatch it back.

“Yeah, I’m fine” yeah so fine, just felling like crawling out of my skin because your touching me or I want to attack the guy a few seats away, make him moan my name, and kiss those soft lips of his. My wolf wanted to roll in his scent and bite into his soft neck marking him his forever.

I need him right now!

Taking deep breaths I tried to relax the best I could. I do have to say that this movie was the longest three hours of my life but eventually I watched him jump from his seat and rush out of the theater the moment it ended. I couldn’t ignore the chase but running after his would just make me look like a weirdo so I followed after him at a quick pace, dragging a whining Gee along with me since she refused to let of my damn hand. I was right behind him which made his smell hit me extra hard. This time I didn’t hold back a growl.

“Liam” Gee whined but I tuned her out.

The second we were outside I realized that I was heading straight towards him, like I was approaching my pray. I changed my direction when the girl he was with ran past me to grab him.

“Damn Aiden! Where the hell’s the fire?” She exclaimed.

So that was his name, I liked it.

My gaze was still stuck on him when I realized he was staring straight at me too. My steps faulted a little as his beautiful sky blue eyes pieced into my hazel ones. Jeez I could drown in them. His dark hair was hanging in his eyes, his mouth slightly open, his cheek flushed a little. He look like a model, if only I had a camera. My wolf was howling to get out, to stand next to him, rub against him, and lick him till his skin was raw till he carried out scent making sure no one could claim him from me. My breath was beginning to labor, why is he doing this to me.

“Liam?” Gee tugged my arm and I regrettably looked down at her.

“What” I said a little angrier than necessary. She narrowed her eyes at me then,

“What is your problem tonight?” She snapped at me. I shook my head sighing.

“Nothing, I’m sorry. What is it that you want?” I honeyed my words this time which brought a huge smile to her face.

“Well I was thinking since it’s late you could spend the night at my house tonight.” She said hopefully and I was shivering with disgust at the mere thought. How do I let her down gently?

“Um... I actually want to sleep in my own bed tonight if that’s ok with you?” I knew she was pouting, this is why I kept my eyes straight ahead.

We were buckling up in the car when I felt her hand on my thigh moving upwards.

“Oh come on baby. You know why I want you to come to my house, so why are you being bashful? You’re never been before.”’ she purred moving close to my ear, her lips touching it. “You’re an animal in bed” she whispered seductively or should I say tired. My jaw tightened, my wolf desperately wanted to snap at her to back off.

“Not tonight ok” I said taking her hand from my junk and put the car it to drive. She huffed crossing her arms over her chest.

“Whatever” she mumbled.

Arriving at her house I watched as she got out and slammed my door shut marching her way up to her front door without even looking back. Yep she’s pissed. I couldn’t blame her, we use to do the dirty all the time and now I can’t even look at her much less in that way. The drive home was a somewhat peaceful one, when I pulled up I noticed that the lights were on and Uncle Jim’s car was in the drive way. I walked in; my dad and Jim were at the dinner table talking in hushed tones, my guess would be them trying to not wake mom. I strolled over pulling out a chair. “What are you guys up too?” I asked them as they both looked at me.

“Just pack stuff, rogues and whatnot.” my dad answered. I nodded and sat as they talked.

“So it’s almost a full moon” Uncle Jim said out of the blue.

My dad nodded with a huge smile I was confused,

“So” I said frowning at them. My dad chuckled as did Jim. “What?”

“Well Liam that’s when you wolfs needs are at its highest.” Dad said and I could hear the hidden message.

“What are you talking about?” They both laughed at me.

“Let’s just say I’m going to be around you mother a lot more in the next two week or so” he said with a faraway look. Then it registered.

“Ahh eww dad!” I exclaimed in disgust. “I really didn’t need that mental image.” He chuckled as he took a sip of coffee.

“So that happened every full moon? I thought it was all the time.”

“No, see you want your mate all the time it’s hard to resist naturally but when a full moon comes around it’s a whole different story. It starts about a week to two weeks before a full moon; your wolf begins to push through your humans bond a little bit more, so every feeling you have is enhanced.” Jim explained.

“Wait if this happened every full moon why haven’t I felt this?” I asked.

“It only happened to mated wolves because you’re finally whole when you find your other half, it’s like you’ve developed into your wolf. You get me?” He said. I nodded but I was starting to freak. This meant that I wouldn’t be able to avoid Aiden much longer.

“So if you found your mate but haven’t marked them are you free from the yearning of your wolf?” I asked. This time my dad answered.

“No those days will be the worst for you if you haven’t claimed your mate and when a full moon is close you most likely will bite them willingly or not. You have to understand you wolf is potent at this time every month, so you can resist all you want but his needs will over power your restraints on him. So it’s best to mark your mate before those days arrive or you will not be able to do a single thing but think about your mate and let me tell you those thoughts will leave you with bigger problems in the southern region if you get my meaning.” He said clearing his throat. Jim laughed,

“And you sure as hell would know all about that wouldn’t you Rob” Jim said laughing as dad pushed him.

“Shut up Jim” he muttered taking another sip of coffee.

“So these urges start now?” I asked curiously

“Yep it just started today and I’m going crazy already” dad said looking longingly up the stairs. I grimaced at that. Gross!

“Does it affect the women?’ I asked them.

“Not as much as the men but they get a fair share of what us men experience.” Jim said with a smirk.

“Even if they aren’t marked?”

“Well it depends on if there a wolf of not. If they are wolves they go through it with us but if they are humans not so much. I mean they feel something but not as strong as us. Man or woman” Dad said getting to his feet his eyes still glued to the stairs. “I’m going to go to sleep now, night.” He said quickly taking the stairs two at a time. I watched him with a grimace.

I looked over to Jim and his eyes were staring intently on my face. Frowning I said, “What?”

“You know exactly what” he said knowingly. “All those questions, you’re feeling your wolfs pull to you mate aren’t you?” He asked. I sighed and nodded placing my head on the table.

“Have you mated with him yet?” He asked me surprisingly. My head shot up to look at him in shock.

“No I haven’t” he shook his head.

“You better get on it because you’re not going to be able to resist it for long, trust and believe.” He said with a knowing look.

“I just can’t let myself do it”

“I’m sorry to say but this full moons not going to stop just because you’re scared to claim your mate. And you wolf is not embarrassed to claim this kid” he told me.

“I know” what do I do? “If I do mate him my parents will find out.” I said. Jim sighed,

“I’m telling you they won’t care that much, they’ll know this is what the wolf spirits wanted.”

This full moon is going to fuck me up. Jim left a few minutes later and I went to my room took a quick shower and laid on my bed staring up at the ceiling but my mind was stuck on Aiden. I know what they were talking about. I felt like I was losing control all night, I could have let my wolf win and I bet he would have bit Aiden in front of everyone. Then there was Gee and my wolf was seriously rejecting her and soon I won’t be able to stand being next to her the more I prolong this. I turned my head to peer out of my window to see the moon slowly appearing from behind dark clouds illuminating my room in its lunar glory.

Two weeks and I claim Aiden and there’s nothing I can do to stop it.
