The Millennium Wolves Series Book Three Chapter: 21
Aiden unlaced my dress until my back was exposed, as my hands remained tied. My haze, or rather my subconscious, wanted this so badly it hurt.
His fingers traced my bare back, lust in his touch, fingernails digging into my skin. I was aching for more than just a light scratch.
I needed to feel something real.
“The whip,” I said again.
Aiden surveyed the assortment of whips on the wall and settled on a cat–o‘–nine–tails. He teased my body with it before giving my ass a light lash.
That wasn‘t good enough.
“Harder,” I demanded.
“With pleasure,” he replied, a devilish glint in his eje.
He brought the whip down against my flesh again. It sting this time, but my body wanted more.
“HARDER” I yelled.
As he brought the whip down again, I winced.
What was I doing?
This didn t feel right. This wasn‘ me.
And it didn‘ feel like Aiden either.
What was going on in my head?
My desires changed. I suddenly didn‘t want this anymore.
“Aiden, stop,” I said, struggling against the bindings I‘d placed myself in.
But he didnt stop
He lashed me with the whip again.
“Aiden,” I screamed. “Listen to me!”
“No, we can stop.”
“We have to keep going...”
“We need to know.”
I craned my neck around to look at Aiden, and I couldnt even recognize him.
He looked so intense and determined, but his lips were curled into an unsettling smile.
He was enjoying this.
“Doni fight it,” he shouted.
I felt something howl inside memy inner wolf. It started getting louder and louder until it drowned everything else out.
The room started to spin. Then everything disappeared.
“What the fuck was that?” I asked, snapping back to reality.
I stood up and backed away from Konstantin.
**Sienna, calm down. I understand you’re upset. but it wasn’t real. It was all in your head, and only you have control in there,” Konstantin said, putting up his hands and giving me my space.
“It didn’t feel that way to me,” I said.
“This was just your mind’s way of asking you to submit. If we’re going to find out what’s in the deepest recesses of your subconscious, you’ll have to give in to whatever you’re asking yourself to do
-even if it seems insane.”
I shook my head, not wanting to hear any of this. “He… he transformed into something… vile.” I said, tears welling up in my eyes. “I didn’t even recognize him.”
“Your mate?” Konstantin asked, “That was just your imagination.”
“Sienna, we’re so close. I can feel it.”
No. I can’t do it.”
Konstantin had warned me this would be intense, but what I’d just experienced was next level. I wasn’t built for this.
I grabbed my coat and raced for the elevator, smashing the Down button till the door opened.
“Sienna, don’t run from this again,” Konstantin called after me.
As the elevator closed. I vowed this would be the last time I ever set foot in therapy.
Konstantin Sienna, I’m worried about you.
Konstantin It’s been three days.
Konstantin If you don’t return to our sessions, all our progress will be lost.
Konstantin I understand you felt vulnerable.
Konstantin But the truth always makes us feel that way.
Konstantin Don’t give up just yet.
I glanced at the stream of messages and ignored them, just like I had for the past several days.
I knew that he had a point, but I just couldn’t bring myself to go back.
Maybe I wasn’t as strong and dominant as I thought…
My sessions with him had taken more out of me than I’d realized. They’d sapped me of my energy. my sex drive, and my appetite and replaced it all with melancholia
I’d stayed in bed most of these past few days, recovering. Aiden had even made Jocelyn do a house call, but she couldn’t determine anything wrong with me.
I couldn’t exactly explain that I just had a really bad mind-hangover.
I heard a soft knock on the door, and Aiden came in and sat on the end of the bed.
“Feeling better today?”
“I’m feeling great today.” I smiled.
“Good-because I have a surprise for you,” he said, shooting me a wolfish grin.
“Where are you taking me?” Sienna asked as I led her through the woods. “Don’t you have to work tonight?”
Work-I’d been in it fucking deep lately. And it was taking a toll on Sienna. I’d never seen her be this emotionally distant before.
It made me feel fucking weak when I couldn’t be there for her and she had to turn to therapy.
I knew it had to be my fault somehow, and hopefully, this would give us a chance to reconnect,
**Technically, I am working. And you are too,” I said. “This is patrol.”
“What do you mean?” she asked, skeptical. “Isn’t patrol something you only do with your beta?”
-Usually, but I want to start doing it with you. I want to involve you more in my work life.”
To my surprise, Sienna started stripping her clothes off. She turned and smirked at me.
“Well, we’d better get going then. Take off your
All right, if that was how she wanted to play it.
I ran after her, catching up and nipping at her heels, but she managed to keep a step ahead,
She’d gotten faster-a lot faster.
I was reminded of our first run as we zigzagged through the forest. I’d never forget that exhilarating chase the way Sienna had made me hunt her for hours.
Now, we were running side by side-alpha mates
—and it was perfect.
Without warning, Sienna tackled me with all her weight, and I lost my footing, tumbling down a hill and landing in the river with a splash.
I was submerged for a moment in the still water. and I saw Sienna above me, looking down.
My head broke the surface, and I paddled to shore. “What the hell was that?” I growled.
Sienna shifted back to human form and began laughing hysterically.
“Payback, for our first run.”
No one had to tell me twice to get naked. I loved
the feeling of freeing myself of clothes right before I shifted.
As I watched Sienna remove her underwear so casually, I started to get turned on. She wasn’t shy about her body like she’d been a year ago. Now she was all confidence, and it was sexy as hell.
She turned around and let me take in her full figure under the moonlight.
Her supple milky skin.
Her perfect breasts and pink nipples.
“I thought you said this was a patrol,” she laughed, seeing that I’d become aroused. Or are you just pointing us in which direction to go?”
We both shifted and began communicating
through our link
“Try to keep up, “I goaded.
Sienna dashed into the woods before I could even blink
“You were saying?”
I shook my wet fur off in her direction before also shifting back
“Hey, you’re getting me wet,” she shouted.
“Not yet, I’m not,” I said, lifting her up and pinning her against a tree. “But I fucking will.”
We started kissing and biting like animals while she wrapped her legs around my waist.
My dick pressed up against her sex, making her moan, and it drove me crazy.
I felt hazed as fuck, and all I wanted was to make her feel as good as I did.
“Are you?” I looked at her, hopefully.
Sienna shoved me down onto the ground and started riding me without any hesitation
“I am,” she said with a smirk.
Damn, it felt amazing. She knew just how to move when she was on top of me.
“Aiden… Yes!” she screamed.
She rocked back and forth on my cock, taking control.
I dug my fingers into the ground as she slid across my length with precision.
She was fucking hazed, all right.
And I was going to make her feel it…
All night long
Nina wasn’t making the progress that I’d expected by now. Werewolves heal much faster than humans, but Nina’s injuries perplexed me.
On the outside, the bruises and the cuts looked horribly painful, but my senses told me that something was off.
I’d been growing closer to Nina every day, but I couldn’t help but feel she wasn’t being completely honest with me.
There was a way—a risky healer technique—that I could use to find out the truth…
“What are you thinking?” Nina asked, slowly
limping over to me
“Just trying to figure out how we can speed up your recovery.” I smiled, but Nina didn’t return it.
“Oh, you’re getting tired of me, huh?”
“No, I’m not getting tired of you. I just want you to get better.” I reassured her. “I just feel like I haven’t been doing everything that I can.
I helped Nina sit down across from me, and I grabbed her hands.
“I’d like to try something new-if you’ll let me.”
Nina smirked, interested. “I’m always game to try new things.
Shit, this might be the worst idea I‘ve ever had, but I need to know
There was an old technique that allowed healers to absorb another wolf’s pain into their own bodies
It was dangerous, but if she was really injured, then maybe this could turn the tide, and if she wasn’t…
I placed both of my hands on her broken leg and concentrated all my energy into her injury.
Next, I reversed the flow of her energy into my body.
The veins in my arms started glowing, and I braced myself for the excruciating pain that was about to seep inside me, but..
I looked up at Nina, allowing the betrayal to show in my eyes.
“You lied to me.” I said, shocked. “You aren’t even injured. You aren’t even in fucking pain.”
-What do you mean? Of course I’m…”
“Don’t no more lies, Nina. You’ll only make this worse. I can feel what’s inside you.”
“Shit, Jocelyn. I-I wanted to tell you,” she said, her eyes growing wide. Please-I’m begging you
—don’t hate me.
What else was she lying about? Why was she even here?
What else wa
You need to leave,” I said, tears beginning to roll down my face. “Go now, before I tell Aiden.”
**Jocelyn, please listen to me,” she shouted, but I was already grabbing my phone.
Nina lunged at me, and I flinched, closing my eyes, but I froze when I felt her lips meet mine.
Wh—what was happening?
Why was I letting it happen?
As her soft lips closed over mine. I felt a wave of emotion.
Instead of pulling away, I leaned into it, and she kissed me even harder. Every ounce of anger that I’d felt a moment ago melted away.
I opened my eyes, and Nina had tears in her eyes as well.
“This is why I didn’t tell you I’d already healed,” she said, placing her hand on my face.
**I didn’t want you to send me away. Not before I had a chance to tell you how I really feel about you. There’s a connection between us—a strong one. Do you feel it too?”
“Yes,” I answered, wiping away her tears. “I feel it too.”
