Summary: You know that feeling of being in control? Of knowing what happens next? You’ve got it all worked out, knows it’ll be hard work but worth it. You’re so focused on carefully laid plans that you kinda forgot about you…. but then something or someone comes along and changes everything. Suddenly you’re not even in charge of your own heart anymore. Yeah. That’s what happened to me.
Sit down and let me tell you a story… you might want to put your legs up and get comfortable, we’ll be here for a while.
It all began a day I was letting my wolf have some fun in the woods…
I squirmed in his grasp, kicking my legs and slapping his ass hard. He just flexed his muscles and the only thing I had to show for my effort was a stinging palm. He pushed the door to the bedroom open and held on to me as he bent down just enough to yank the bedspread off the bed.
“Stop being an idiot and put me down. This isn’t funny anymore.” I said breathlessly.
It wasn't a lie, there wasn't anything amusing about this, I was so turned on all I wanted has him touching me, no more games.
Adam didn’t answer me, instead he shifted his weight and spread his legs to get his footing right before dropping me to the bed with a huff. He immediately went to work on my clothes and within minutes I was as naked as the day I was born. When I tried to return the favor he batted my hands away and stripped off his clothes with a determination and speed that would have impressed anyone. I watched him as he stood before me so beautiful with his predatory look in his eyes and his cock swinging enticingly between his legs as he moved closer. I tried to swallow but my throat was as dry as Sahara and the heated look in his gaze made my body burn with lust.
Slowly he crawled up my body and when I tried to reach out for him, to touch him, he took a hold of both my hands and pulled them above my head. He didn’t say a word, but it wasn’t necessary. I got the message loud and clear. I wasn’t allowed to touch, my hands were staying there. My breath was shallow and uneasy at this point and my cock ached to be touched. I lifted my hips seeking friction to get the edge off and pleaded for him to touch me when he denied me the luxury.
"Make me wolf, Tommy.”
I shook my head unable to speak actual words. Adam ran his hands and lips across my body mapping every erotic zone he could find without touching me where I needed it the most. My cock throbbed with need; I flexed my hands and grabbed the headboard to keep my hands there.
“Please Adam, please.” I squirmed under his torturously sinful touches arching my body begging for more.
“Say you’ll make me wolf and I will.” He licked the inside of my thigh and nuzzled my balls, making me whimper in despair.
I closed my eyes, still fighting a losing battle against my wolf and the betrayal by my own body. My wolf had known best when it saved Adam’s life. Maybe it knew best this time around too.
Adam’s breath ghosted hot and moist over my cock and unwillingly a moaned 'yes' slipped out.
Adam beamed at me before he settled between my thighs. He pushed a little at them and I wantonly spread my legs even further. My heart was beating fast and hard, so hard I could hear my blood rushing in my ears.
The first touch of Adam’s tongue made my breath hitch and my eyes fall shut again, surrendering to the sensory overload. Adam is so fucking good at using his mouth, “Oh, god, please,” I gasped.
Adam hummed around me, spreading his palms over my thighs covering the tops of them completely; he always made me feel so small and I reveled in the feeling of it. I tried to keep my hands clasped around the headboard but the need to touch him was too much and I lost the struggle. I reached down and grabbed a handful of his hair, holding on tight until he nipped at my skin. I loosened my grip a little and he ran his thumbs soothingly over my thighs letting me know it was okay.
“Fuck, please, fuck, Adam please.” I pleaded under my breath.
Adam hummed again, and I had to open my eyes and lift my head to look down at him. Adam looked right back at me, watching me. His eyes twinkled at me under the cloudy haze of lust covering them. I tightened my fist in his hair again and a moan vibrated from him, making my orgasm coil.
I wanted to come so badly.
“Oh, Adam, fuck, Adam,” I gasped, throwing my head back and came hard enough to see stars behind my eyelids.
Adam swallowed and kept sucking me through it. When I finally pushed at his head because it was just too much, he crawled back up to me, wiping the corners of his mouth with the tips of his fingers. His lips were red and abused, and the predatory gleam was still in his eyes when he glanced at me before crushing our lips together. He tasted like me, like my seed, sharp bitter and salty. I chased the taste licking and sucking until there was nothing left but the taste of Adam alone.
“Give me a second to come back and I’ll-”
“No, you promised me something and that’s what I want from you today.”
I sighed. He was right, I'd submitted to his will and now I owed my wolf and Adam both the trust I'd decided to give to them. My wolf couldn’t have been happier with me so I rolled my head to the side, exposing my neck. “You’ll have to bite me, make me bleed and drink from me. If that doesn’t work, we’ll mix blood, but I think it will. And so does Mia.”
Adam looked uneasy for a moment but shook it off and reached out a finger to touch my neck lovingly. “Here?”
“But I’ll hurt you.”
He didn’t have to tell me just how much he resented that, it was rolling off him in waves. I ran a hand over his arm up to his shoulder and nudged him closer. Making him know it was okay. “No more than I did you yesterday.”
He shifted and the bed dipped a little as he moved closer to get the right angle and caressed me tenderly before finally making the decision to go ahead. The pain was sharp and I had to fight the urge to shy away from it for a second but once the blood surfaced and Adam started to lick it up, the magic began and all I sensed was the bond it was creating between us as Adam’s wolf came to life.
Adam woke up with a jerk and stared at me wide eyed. His hand that had been holding mine loosely in his sleep tightened crushing my fingers, as he fought the alertness of waking with wolf feelings and senses. I squeezed his hand softly and whispered a good morning, his tension faded and Adam smiled back at me, bright and happy.
“How are you feeling?” I asked before kissing his knuckles softly.
“You know how I’m feeling.”
“Yeah, but I still want it from your lips.”
Adam smiled and a teasing glint shone in his eyes before he kissed me soft and tender and so fucking loving that I almost melted into the mattress.
“Good enough?” He asked when he pulled back.
“I meant with words but yeah, I know you’re happy.”
“What happens next?”
“We go home to face my mom and the pack. Do you feel ready for that?”
Adam was silent for a while and I knew he was searching his mind and body for the answer. I waited patiently. It was important that Adam and his wolf had an understanding of each other before meeting the pack. It didn’t matter that it was our pack he would be meeting and that he knew the wolves already. His wolf didn’t and it needed to trust in him, to trust his judgment first, otherwise it could go really wrong. The new senses he had gained overnight could really fuck with him if he and his wolf weren't in harmony.
“Yeah. I think I’m ready for that.” He said thoughtfully. “One question though. I know your mom wanted this but will I have to-”
I didn’t let him finish that sentence; I needed to reassure him right away, because his fear was already killing me. “No honey. You were right, I was the beta and betas are not forced to defend their spot in the pack by law. My wolf easily submitted to yours and you’re the new beta. I guess Darren actually knew I would fight you on the subject and wanted me to become alpha before you, just like you said. It pisses me off that he knows how I think so well and it also makes me wonder what else he’s got up his sleeve. But Mom will turn over the alpha role when you become twenty-five, just as she would have to me.”
Adam let out a relieved breath of air. “Good. I really didn’t want to ya’ know?” he relaxed visibly and I smiled before kissing him lovingly on the cheek.
“Yeah I do.”
Stepping into the kitchen of my childhood home was a very surreal feeling after the two days spent alone with Adam. For starters most of the wolves were there, including Trent and Mia and then I was almost tackled by Allison who threw her arms around me and greeted me with such wolf affection that I felt a little ashamed of staying away for so long.
“Hey, sweet pea.”
“Hmm. I like this,” she nuzzled my jaw and sniffed my neck, inhaling deep into her lungs. “It never ceases to amaze me, the change that comes with love. He smells good on you, right somehow.” She whispered to me and I felt my cheeks heat up. She was the first to comment on our mating and it kind of rocked my world. Adam must have picked up on her words because he beamed and ruffled Allison's hair affectionately, making her forget all about me and attack him instead.
I briefly met Trent’s gaze before seeking out my mother across the room. Love, understanding and pride radiated from her as she crossed the kitchen to pull me into a warm hug.
“Tommy Joe!” she said in a fake disappointed tone and I tried to copy it but missed it by a mile. I blame the frog in my throat for that. Apparently I’m a sap when it comes to things like this. “Mother!”
She pulled away enough to really look at me.
“I can’t believe you actually did that without telling me. And Mia tells me that there is going to be a wedding so I shouldn’t be too hard on you. So I won’t, I’m happy for the both of you, but you knew that.”
I nodded before I looked at Mia and shot her an appreciative smile. She stuck her tongue out at me, forcing me to roll my eyes at her. She laughed.
Allison had released Adam and he wrapped an arm around my middle before leaning in to kiss my mother’s cheek. Her eyes widened in surprise when she sensed Adam’s wolf and she shot me a quick glance.
“Oh and I see that’s not all. You’re a wolf now, Adam.”
I felt Adam tense behind me as he suddenly felt insecure and I figured that my mother’s seniority as an alpha made Adam’s wolf nervous and ready to submit. He still had so much to learn about how the wolf would pull or push to get what came natural to it, it was no longer just up to Adam’s strong will to get what he wanted, for the rest of his life his decisions would be affected by what the wolf wanted too.
I stroked Adam’s arm soothingly and looked up at him with the intention of calming him, but his eyes were locked on my mom’s and I saw the future alpha so clearly in the way he met this little challenge. Proud out of my fucking mind my face broke in a huge smile.
“Yeah.” Adam said, carefully testing the waters between his wolf and my mom’s. “I hope that’s not going to be a problem.”
“No not at all, actually I had hoped that this would be the course of things." She looked at me pointedly before continuing.
“But if you tell Tommy what you want from him instead of letting him figure it out on his own he will fight you all the way. He is so easy going when it comes to meeting others wishes and needs, but if you flat out tell him what to do, he’ll be stubborn and hard headed. I guess I passed that trait on, sorry about that.”
I wanted to wipe the smiles off their faces, teasing me like that. But mom was right, I never was very good at taking orders.
Adam changed my mood instantly though, when he said, “I love him the way he is. Stubborn but passionate and fierce.”
“Good.” Mom smiled and turned her attention to me. “Now Tommy, tell me why you haven’t let Adam claim you yet.”
“Um, why? We’re mated, I claimed him. I’d say we’re pretty obvious about belonging to each other. The rest will come, what’s the rush?”
“Because Adam is wolf now, which means he falls under our laws, and of course it doesn’t make your mating invalid, but since you’re no longer my beta,” she paused and looked at Adam. “But he is, then you’re free to be claimed by any of the other alphas. It is a threat to the pack when an alpha’s mate isn’t claimed. Adam would have to fight to get you back. And with Darren on the warpath?” she shrugged and looked at me apologetically, “Well I just think it makes Adam and certainly you an easy target for him. It would be right up his alley.”
I swallowed; she made a damn good point. Damn it. “Yeah, okay I see that. But can it wait? Adam can’t be alpha for the next couple of months anyway because of his age.”
Mom considered it for a moment. “Well, he could, but that would mean he took on me in a fight, and I guess there is no reason for that is there?” She looked at Adam mildly, “when I’ll give it all up in three months freely.”
Adam shook his head in agreement. “No, I don’t want to do that. I want to get to know my wolf first anyway.”
“But why do you want to wait, Tommy?” Mom asked me.
I could feel the weight of the others, sensed them holding their breaths, claiming is a big deal and obviously they wanted to understand my reasons.
“I just want Adam and his wolf to understand each other first. To claim someone, well it messes with your head and I don't want to add to the already confused state of mind that he’s in.”
I looked up at Adam, trying to apologize for putting him on the spot like that but he looked back with genuine gratitude shining in his eyes. He understood my motives and appreciated them. I couldn't even begin to describe the relief I felt because of that. He was still letting me take care of him and I realized that was one of the main reasons I had fought him so hard on the ‘turning wolf thing’. I had been scared of not being allowed to show my love and affection for him and the pack through my need to protect.
My mother interrupted my thoughts with a soft sigh.
“Alright dear, just make sure it’s done before Adam takes my place.” She turned to look around the kitchen, counting heads to make sure we were all there.
“Now, I really want every one's attention on the warnings Mia’s pack received from Darren’s.”
And just like that the subject matter of our mating and Adam's transformation to Were was finished. No one had questioned anything or seemed surprised by the fact that Adam was now the pack’s new beta and would become their leader in just three months. I was amazed and proud of my pack.
We all talked back and forth for a while about how we could protect Mia and the others and we all agreed that the packs needed to stay close to each other and help out with patrolling the borders of our lands. No wolf went alone into the woods as long as this aggression from Darren's pack continued. Our two packs had been living peacefully side by side for almost seventy years and we shared the habitat so it was only natural for us to join together. It wasn't natural to have to prepare to face an enemy, especially not an enemy like Darren. What made things worse was the irony that he was supposed to make sure every pack lived in peace with the others.
When all the arrangements were done Adam looked at Mia and asked if he could talk to her in private. Mia shot a worried look at me before agreeing. I felt a pang of worry too but Adam kissed my temple and told me to relax, so that’s what I tried to do. Mike, who clearly knew I needed some distraction, asked me if I wanted to grab a cup of coffee and go out on the porch with him, so we did.
“How do you feel about not being your mother’s beta anymore?”
I shrugged and thought about it for a minute. “It’s cool I guess. I kinda thought it would be much harder to give up. Birthrights and all. But I’m really enjoying how much Adam wants this, um and the way that he wants to keep me safe. My wolf seems to love that very much too. It took me some time to realize that. And when I did I felt so stupid for not seeing it.”
I sipped my coffee and looked across the meadow and into the forest, Mike did the same and it made me smile. So many hours had been spent like this while we solved the problems of the world. Some things never change and never should.
“Don’t beat yourself up over that.”
“I won’t. Much.”
We were quiet for a while. My head was spinning with thoughts of the future of our and when I had been quiet too long Mike nudged my ribs, urging me to say what was on my mind. “I worry, about our packs, about our future. And I’m still sad that Mia’s and my dreams aren’t gonna happen. Especially now, with Darren and his interest in Mia’s pack. I really wish there was a way to work around that damn law so we could unite the packs peacefully. We’ve been living side by side for years damn it; we all know that we practically function as one pack.”
I took another sip of the coffee before looking at Mike.
“Hmm. But that’s old laws Tommy. Time changes things, makes them evolve and adapt. You shouldn’t think in boxes, you never do when it comes to anything else. Like your music for instance, you experiment with that and push until you get it right. You can do that with the laws too, they’re not rock solid. You proved that the other day didn’t you? Laws can be interpreted; you just need the proper argument.”
“I suppose you’re right.”
Mike chuckled, “You and Mia can still make changes Tommy, and you’ll do it with Adam as a powerful alpha, just wait and see.”
“Who the fuck gave you a crystal ball?” I asked and shoved at him playfully, before being serious again.
”And why is it you think that Adam can join our packs, you’ve said it before and then asked me to be patient.”
“I still need you to be that. But I think Darren will underestimate Adam severely and that will bring changes.”
“And I should just trust you? Right?” I asked teasingly, wanting to lighten the mood. Mike laughed and put an arm around my shoulder and hugged me sideways.
“When have I ever been wrong?” He asked still laughing.
