“Maybe” Ben finally started, hesitantly looking at Ethan, “Waybe she’s right, it’s been years and he never approached her again, right?” He looked my way, I nodded in response. “But it doesn’t look good when you think about it dosely.” he pused for a moment. “I mean, is this a coincidence that she’s at Amanda’s ex-mate’s pack? What if she told him about Mandy?” he questioned us.

was beaming, enjoying the party. All the invited punts arthed and even more. It was their future Alpha’s birthday party after all I put Blake’s gift on the table and watched him
play Hide and Seek. The party was in full blast. People were
dancing to the music chosen by Peter; meat was grilling and everyone was having fun. I saw Ethan talking to a pair of
older people, trying to convince them of something but it looked like they were being stubborn. I didn’t know what
that was about, but I shrugged it off.
“Hey Luna, are you enjoying yourself?” Aria’s voice interrupted my moment. I smiled and turned around to face her.
“Wowgirl, you look stunningi” I exclaimed, seeing her outfit. She was in a black full sleeved mid-thigh dress and
red heels. Her blonde hair was laose, and she had minimal
make-up on her face. She was gorgeous.
*Thank you,” she answered, blushing but played
confident. Her future mate would be a lucky guy.
Remembering her question, I answered her.

*Stillyou look like Goddess in it.” Brian camplimented her, openly flirting. I chuckled and excused myself, not wanting to me the end of it:
I was walking through the crowd, people smiling or bowing their heads at me when I was abruptly pulled into an embrace by strong arms. The sparks appeared and his lips touched my ear whispering “Where do you think you’re going, baby girl?” Ethan pulled me to him and dragged us over the tree nearby, kissing my neck. I suppressed the moan that was trying to escape my lips, not wanting anyone to hear it.
“Just walking around the place, actually looking for you.” I answered, enjoying the moment. Goosebumps appeared everywhere he touched me, he tralled soft kisses over my shoulder, pulling my dress’s strap down in attempt

an instant, he opened his eyes and focused on my lips.
“But we still can make out a little,” he said and claimed my lips in a hungry and domineering kiss. I pushed my body against his and moaned at the contact, parting my lips, and letting his tongue to slip into my mouth. He held me close, not leaving any space to even allow air flow freely between
I cuppad his face, his long hair brushing my hands and cheeks creating a perfect curtain to hide our faces from the world. Squeezing my waist, he pushed his hips forward and I felt his excitement on my belly. My knees started shaking. If it weren’t for his firm grip. I would have definitely collapsed.
We were so into our make out session that we didn’t hear the
voices around us.
“Daddy, where are you?” Blake’s voice nearby pulled us out of our world, gasping for air. We just stood there, holding each other, trying to calm down.
“I’ll be right back, buddy.” Ethan finally found the

”I think this calls for a celebration,” he whispered, kissing my neck. My hands caressed his back, his movie with slow and gentle, making love to me. It felt so good. Our moves coordinated, both worshiping each other, pouring all our love in our movements.

“So how did your conversation go?” Ethan asked me, sitting down at the dining table in my cabin.
After our morning filled with making love, we ate our breakfast in bed, talking about what’s next. I told him that I needed to call my boss to inform him about my decision

“Something tells me there’s more.” he raised his
eyebrow and tilted his head, I bit my lip and nodded.
“He agreed to let me 80, but not to shorten my notice.” I
squared his hand, waiting for the dreaded question.

“Six months? And how do you expect us to live through

“You didn’t let me finish.”

putting on my best innocent smile.
He narrowed his eyes at my game, “You little minx.Ok

Hearing the sound of bona anapping, I looked back at Ethan. He’s posture got bigger and black fur started to cover his body. His limbs transformed into monstrous paws, face tumed into a shout.

“Can I touch you?” I asked hesitantly. He looked at me
and nodded his head. That gave me courage. I took slow
steps his way, looking in his black eyes. Stopping at a safe distance, I slowly raised my hand and held it in front of him, waiting for his move. He took one step, and his nose touched

“Do you want me to ride on you?” I needed to be sure ! was reading his moves correctly. He medded and so I did. I adjusted my body on his back and held tightly the furat his neck, his body warming mine: “Isn’t too tight?” I asked, squeezing his tur to confirm my grip wasn’t hurting him and he shook his head no.
He slowly stood up, my heart palpitating with both
excitement and nervousness. He barked, I guess to warn me
to get ready. He walked in the forest direction slowly
increasing his speed. My grip tightened and my legs squeezed his sides. I lowered my body flat against his back
for security. The wind slowly hitting my face when he took off was now whipping my hair around at almost full speed. I
squealed and closed my cyes. I felt his muscles moving
below my body. Seconds later, I opened my eyes and

Trying to stand up I heard bones smapping. “Nie landing.” he sniggered.
“Ha ha ha very funny, Mister.” I scolded. Finally steading
myself, I faced him. He was fully dressed, smiling at me. I
reciprocated the smile. “That was amazing, thank you!” I said hugeing his torso.
“Anytime baby” he offered and kissed my nose. “What
do you say about a barbecue to celebrate you staying?” he
Sugested, and I nodded. It was a good idea. Recently we
hadn’t received any new threats so maybe Charlotte gave up.
Holding hands, we went back to my cabin.
The smell of grilled steaks filled my nose. I was starving

munciing some cookies. Aria and Brian occupied the other blanket. We were waiting for Ben and Peter to finish their patrol duties in an hour to join us.
“Aria, can we hang out tomorrow, I’d like to see your
wolf finally.” I asked pleading, we haven’t had a girl’s time for a very long time.
“Sure, I need to talk to you about something anyway.”
She smiled back at me but there was something different in
her eyes, she was wary. Was she hiding something? Not
wanting to create any awkwardness, I nodded my head in
response and we continued talking casually. Brian talked
with Ethan about the new training techniques they’re
learning. Aria and I chose to talk with Blake about his party
and he told us about the gifts, fun, ride, he was so excited
that I had to stop him to take a breath. He was talking so fast. An hour later, Ben and Peter joined us. They ate at least
four steaks each.
“My God, I know you’re all werewolves but I’m glad I don’t have to cook for you!” I stated, looking shocked at their plates. I could never eat that much.
“We’re after our patrols, so we need food to regain our

keeping my friendly smile on my face.
The man finally opened his mouth. “Well, you might
have fooled our Alpha, but we’ll not fall for your tricks. You’re
mot fit for the Luna position. You’re a mere human, without a
strong she-wolf as our Luna, this pack will fall in no time,” he scoffed. Wow that was harsh, but I had already heard that

You’re in constant need of protection, the sooner you

we’ll be fine without you,” he almost growled at the end, his
wife was still smirking at me.
It was time to change my tactic. I narrowed my eyes at them. “Listen, I don’t give a shit about your insults, but *****g remember who you’re talking to. I’m going to be the
Luna of this pack and you will not tell me what to do.” I said
coldly, seeing the shock evident on their faces. “I will not
reject him, and suggesting that to me is the same as offending your Alpha, which is punishable. If you’re not satisfied with his decisions, you’re free to change packs.”
They gulped at my words, and a hint of fear appeared in their
eyes. I didn’t move, waiting for them to respond.
The woman blinked few times and was about to open
her mouth, but we were interrupted by loud, menacing
growls in the distance. My ears registered someone shouting
one terrifying word:
