Fated To The Alpha by Jessica Hall Chapter 36
After getting the okay from Doc, Ezra took us back to the pack house. Mateo wandered off to his room while the Alpha dragged me to his before flopping on the bed face down. I guess he wasn’t exaggerating when he said he missed his bed.
Walking into the bathroom, I turned the shower wanting to shower, my skin felt gross and my hair felt flat on my head. Standing under the stream I grab the shampoo. The familiar smell of his shampoo filling the air around me and I found it soothing.
I was rinsing it out when I suddenly felt a draft, opening my eyes as Ezra steps in the shower. He pecks my lips before reaching behind me and grabbing the soap from the niche behind me.
He then turns around and starts washing himself. I stare at his back, my eyes trailing down to his backside, I touch his hip and he chuckles, turning around.
“Bit handsy, considering you still haven’t even given me permission to look at you”
“I didn’t realise I had too since my nudie run, kinda seems pointless when half the pack has seen me naked don’t you think?”
“Yes, but I still stand by my word little one. I won’t look without permission” he says.
I wrap my arms around his neck standing on my tippy toes to kiss him. When I feel his hands go to the back of my thighs as he lifts me pressing me against the cold tiles. I shriek the moment my back comes in contact with them, breaking the kiss.
Ezra chuckles his face in my neck and I feel his tongue run over my neck sucking on my skin. I wrap my legs around his waist, his hands running up my thighs sending tingles everywhere while he sucks and nips on my skin.
“No, you gave me a hickey last time, lips off my neck” I tell him, pushing his face away as I feel him sucking one particular spot where a mate’s mark usually lay. I could feel the skin bruising.
“Sorry I got carried away” he says nipping at my chin making his way to my lips. My lips part as he sucks it in his mouth before biting down on my bottom lip.
I kiss him back pulling him closer and he groans, pressing himself against me. Everywhere his skin touches my skin tingles and burns, the sensation growing unbelievably strong that it makes my heart thump wildly in my chest.
“You okay?” He asks with a silly smile on his lips.
“Yeah you just made me all flustered” I tell him trying to regain my breath. What the F*ck was wrong with me?
“Want me to put you down?” He asks and I shake my head instead grabbing his hand that was on my thigh, my legs tightening around his waist. My own hand shakes as I place his hand on my breast.
His eyes flicker turning black. And I find myself staring at the eyes of his wolf. “Hello Maddox” I chuckle cupping his cheek. His eyes flickering oddly and I could see Ezra was fighting him for control back.
“Why have you appeared?” I ask him and his lips open, his body starts to tremble.
“Mmma” he tries to say something, the words sounding stuck as he stutters from Ezra fighting for control back. I feel Ezras grip on my hip tighten. His hand on my breast moving quickly to the tiled walls with a thud and I see his eyes go back to their normal caramel colour and he takes a breath in.
“Sorry Kat,” Ezra says looking away.
“Why are you sorry, I knew he wouldn’t hurt me” I tell him, turning his face toward me.
“We should hop out” he says, his mood shifting abruptly and I unwrap my legs from around his waist. He gently sets me on my feet before kissing my forehead.
“What’s wrong?” I ask him.
“Nothing Kat, I just want to do the right thing by you, but I am tired, really tired and I don’t think I can keep Maddox at bay while exhausted” he says, reaching around me and cutting the shower off.
“I don’t get it, why is your wolf appearing a bad thing?” I ask him, I didn’t understand, his wolf has never hurt me. Quite the opposite actually.
“The fact that you’re even asking why that’s a problem, means I shouldn’t let him that close to the surface around you, not yet at least. He doesn’t want to hurt you but you may freak out if he gets carried away, like he just did” Ezra says, grabbing a towel and handing it to me.
“He only tried to talk to me” I mumble, not seeing the big deal about it.
“Just wait till the Full Moon tomorrow, then I will let you speak with him. Then things may make sense, at least I hope they do” he says, kissing my cheek.
Ezra walks out of the bathroom and into his walk-in before coming out with shorts on and shirt in his hand. He handed the shirt to me. And I pull it on before getting rid of the towel and hanging it on the bathroom door.
“Are you sure everything is alright, did I do something. I can leave if you want, sleep in the other room” I ask him.
“What? No, you stay with me”
“But you said I am upsetting your wolf?” I ask him.
“You aren’t upsetting him, he is just overly excited, and anxious. Like I said I need sleep so just come to bed, please” I nod before turning around and climbing on his bed. I slipped under the covers, but now I was worried I pushed him too far.
I know he doesn’t sleep with pack member’s, I never should have grabbed his hand. I felt stupid, and a little rejected at his reaction. But then again wouldn’t he tell me to leave, this whole thing was confusing me.
