The Millennium Wolves Series Book Three Chapter: 22
With time apart from Konstantin, my haze was flaring up like crazy, and Aiden and I were closer than we had been in weeks.
The question of my parents still nagged at me, but my mind had been so muddled that I needed to clear my head if I was going to make any rational decisions.
If my parents were out there, I’d find a way to track them down—a way that didn’t involve mental gymnastics.
Clearly my mind didn’t bend that way, no matter how much I wanted it to.
Konstantin had tried his best, but I just couldn’t do
Aiden swiveled in his desk chair and wrapped his arms around me from behind, pulling me onto his
“What should we do today?” Aiden asked. “Go on a date?”
“Aiden, this is the first time I’ve worked from the office all week. I can’t just come and go as I please. People are going to think I’m getting preferential treatment.”
You’re the alpha’s mate. Of course you’re getting special treatment. In fact, I think I’ll give it to you right now,” he said, sliding his hand up my leg and under my skirt.
“Come on. Aiden, not right now. I have so much paperwork to fill out,” I said, but made no effort to stop him from pulling my underwear down to my ankles and over my heels.
“There’s something that needs Gilling right here.” he growled, slowly plunging his fingers deep into my sex
Fuck it felt so good, and my haze kicked in, making it even better.
It was getting so hot in Aiden’s office that I started unbuttoning my top, revealing my lace bra.
I gave him an approving look, and in one rapid movement, he swiped everything off his desk and I was on my back.
Aiden crawled over me and started pulling down his pants, ready to fulfill his office fantasy, but I had my own.
“Wait,” I exclaimed. “I want to try something.”
I flipped Aiden over and climbed on top. straddling him, feeling my dominance surging
straddling him, feeling my dominance surging through my body
Leaning in as close to his ear as possible. I whispered…
“I’m the boss.”
“It’s outrageous,” I shouted, pacing back and forth in Josh’s office. “How can he do that to you?”
Josh just shook his head. “He’s taken her on patrol almost every night this week. That was our thing.”
Okay. I had to admit that Josh’s man crush on his best friend and subsequent whining about being sidelined wasn’t an attractive look on him…
But I had my own beef with Sienna.
And now she was interfering in my mate’s work too?
No way that was going to continue.
“Josh, you have to talk to Aiden today. You’re his beta, not Sienna, and you’ve been trying so hard to prove yourself to him. You deserve better.”
“All right, I’ll do it today—if you agree to talk to Sienna and stop being so passive-aggressive,” Josh said, crossing his arms.
“I’m not passive-aggressive,” I scoffed.
I had to admit I wanted things to get better between me and Sienna, but I wanted her to come to me first. I’d barely even heard from her in the past few weeks.
Sometimes I wondered if I was being petty, but it really hurt to see my lifelong best friend growing further and further apart from me.
A loud banging in Aiden’s office next door startled me out of my thoughts, and Josh jumped out of his chair
“Are we under attack?” he blurted out, ripping his shirt off, ready to shift.
The unmistakable sounds of moaning and grunting started bleeding through the wall like it was made of paper.
My jaw dropped open. “Wait a fucking second.. are they
“Yes. Yes. Yes.”
“Josh, we have to outfuck them,” I screamed.
Okay, maybe I was a little passive-aggressive sometimes
I shoved Josh against the wall and pulled down his pants. Good thing he was literally always ready to go.
I grabbed his face and stared deeply into his eyes.
“I want you to make me fucking howl.
“You got it,” he said, ripping my shirt open so my breasts spilled out into his face.
I started moaning as loud as I could, right up against the adjoining wall between Josh’s and Aiden’s offices
“Michelle, I’m not even inside you yet.” Josh said, confused
“Well then, hurry the hell up,” I yelled impatiently.
Did he really not get what we were doing? Thank God he was pretty.
I dug my fingernails into Josh’s washboard abs as he pounded me into a moaning mess.
It was mind-blowing
Who knew haze-induced competitive fucking would be so damned good?
I left Josh’s office, panting heavily, at the exact time Sienna came out of Aiden’s.
**Perfect.” I mumbled under my breath.
“Oh-uh, Michelle… hey,” Sienna stammered.
We both looked each other up and down, turning red. We looked like hot messes hair askew, clothing ripped, both out of breath,
I realized my underwear was hanging out of my jacket pocket, and I tried to discreetly stuff them out of sight.
Sienna adjusted her bra strap that was exposed because of several missing buttons on her shirt.
Before I knew what was happening, Sienna burst into laughter, and I did the same.
“This is so fucking awkward,” I laughed, tears forming in my eyes
“No, this is why you’re my best friend,” Sienna responded.
I felt those words in my gut.
Maybe Josh was right. I should just talk to her.
“Hey, do you may be want to grab a—”
Sienna’s phone buzzed and she pulled it out. letting loose a heavy sigh.
“Si, what is it?” I asked, reaching out to touch her shoulder, but she pulled away.
“Sorry, it’s nothing. Just a thing with a client. I’m being dramatic,” Sienna said, fumbling to pull her keys out of her purse. “I have to get to the gallery.”
Something was clearly wrong.
Without even saying goodbye, Sienna got in the elevator, eyes glued to her phone.
I glanced at the nearby staircase.
I was tired of secrets.
I was going to get to the bottom of this, whether Sienna wanted to confide in me or not.
Konstantin Sienna, have you given any thought to what I said?
Konstantin You were so close to making a breakthrough
Konstantin I don’t want you to throw all of your progress away.
Sienna I don’t think I can continue our sessions
Sienna It’s not healthy for me
Sienna There has to be another way
Facing your fears is the only way.
Konstantin You can’t keep running.
Konstantin I promise you that if you come back…
Konstantin I’ll do everything in my power to help you find the answers that you need.
Sienna I don’t know if I’m strong enough…
Konstantin Trust me.
T’ll try again. One more time.
That’s all you’ll need.
I knocked on Aiden’s door and entered his offi Everything that had been on top of his desk was strewn across the floor, and the musk of sex lingered in the air.
He hadn’t even put his shirt back on yet, and his tie hung loosely around his neck.
At least he‘ll be in a good mood. He did just get laid.
“Hey, can we talk?” I asked hesitantly,
These moments with Aiden were always weird. I didn’t know whether to high-five him or bow and call him my alpha.
My friendship with Aiden started long before he became the alpha of the East Coast Pack, but at the pack house, the line between our friendship and professional relationship was a blurry one.
We both had productive afternoons, I see.” Aiden grinned.
“Yeah, you could say that,” I said, scratching the back of my head. That’s actually what I wanted to talk to you about-my productivity.”
“What are you gonna tell me you’re overworked?” Aiden laughed. Because it sounded like Michelle was keeping you pretty fucking busy.”
“You’ve made Sienna your new beta,” I shoute unable to hold it back anymore.
Aiden looked stunned,
He clearly hadn’t been expecting that blowup.
“Is this about patrol?” Aiden asked.
“Patrol, yes, but it’s everything. I feel fucking ineffective when I come to work and see all the tasks that I used to be in charge of delegated to Sienna.”
“Josh, to tell you the truth, I’ve been trying to involve Sienna in my work life because she’s been distant lately. But she’s also been a huge asset to the pack house.”
“I’ve just been working so hard to show you I’m still devoted to this pack and to you.”
“I know, Josh. And I appreciate it. But after what happened at Sienna’s debut, I need to prove those bigots wrong and show the pack how much Sienna can shine when she has the opportunity.”
He sighed deeply and sat back in his desk chair, “With Sienna, I’m beginning to see a new path for our pack that I never would’ve seen on my own.”
“Sure, but where do I fit into that vision of the future?” I asked
There was a tense silence between us.
No matter if Aiden had forgiven me or not, things were different now. And that was hard to accept.
All those runs with Aiden must’ve really given Sienna some calf muscles, because mine were on fire trying to keep up with that girl.
My best friend was definitely keeping secrets. Not only did she not go to the gallery, but she called a taxi instead of using Aiden’s chauffeur.
And now I was watching Sienna waltz into the most expensive hotel in town, trying to look
Thank God this chase was finally over, because I was not built for this shit.
I crouched behind a chair in the lobby as I watched her get into the elevator. I could at least see what floor this sneaky bitch was going to
“Oh shit,” I muttered to myself as the light stopped at the penthouse.
Why the hell was she meetino comeone at a hotel
Why the hell was she meeting someone at a hotel, unless…
I could barely contain my anxiety as I waited for the elevator at Konstantin’s hotel. I’d finally get the answers that I’d been searching for.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath,
I’d finally know where I came from,
Who I came from.
And I could ask them to their faces why they’d given me away…
Even though it was painful, I needed to know…
Why I wasn’t good enough.
