Dane, Ash, Colby, and Zayd spent the next four hours coming up with new patrol schedules and routes.
They went over every possible scenario they could think of and felt confident in the new routine.
I spent that time training with Genesis while Adria sat at the side and watched the kids.
She also gave some advice on techniques when you are fighting a male wolf. I was exhausted by the time we were done.
Genesis and I both agreed that we should start training with each other.
I will continue to train with Ash and Dane daily, and Genesis will start training more with Ash. I was standing and talking to Genesis and Adria when I was suddenly knocked to the ground, my feet swept out from under me.
I rolled to the right before jumping on my feet and taking the stance Ash and Dane taught me.
“You need to work on your senses. You should have caught my scent before I ever reached you,” Dane said as he began circling me.
I narrowed my eyes at him, “I guess I was too busy talking. Didn’t think I needed to be on alert.”
He shook his head, “You should always be on alert, especially now with everything that is going on.”
He moved quickly, grabbing my arm and spinning me around.
“You’re right…l should be more observant.”
I did just as he had taught me and was able to free myself, taking my stance again.
“Good,” he stood as he eyed me, “You are making a lot of progress, but you still need some work.”
Before I could react, he had me pinned to arms down.
“What are you going to do?” he smirked, thinking I couldn’t get out of his grasp.
I smiled, “I love you so much,”
I told him.
He smiled, bringing his head down slowly to k!ss me, “I love you too babe.”
I brought my knee up, hitting him right in his groin, using just enough force to get free.
He rolled over groaning, “Cheater…” he said breathlessly.
I looked back to see Adria, Zayd, Genesis, and Ash laughing.
After a few minutes, Dane stood up, “Let me guess, mom taught you to do that?”
I laughed as we walked over to the group, “Yes, she did.”
Dane shook his head, “I’ve seen her do that to dad a few times when they were sparing. Worked every time…”
Zayd was laughing the hardest, “Adria’s famous move. Just glad it was you and not me.”
Adria laughed as she playfully hit Zayd on his ch3st.
“Let’s go eat,”
Dane stated as he picked Kyra up.
After eating supper, we said goodnight and made our way back to our house.
Dane insisted I relax in a bubble bath while he put Kyra to bed.
I didn’t even try to protest; my whole body was screaming at me.I already knew I would be super sore in the morning.
After filling the tub with steaming hot water and a eucalyptus bubble bath, I slid down.
Sighing as the hot water began to relax my tense muscles.
I leaned my head onto the back of the tub and closed my eyes. I never heard the bathroom door, “Hmmm…”
I slowly opened my eyes to find Dane already undressing as he stared at me. I could already feel the heat beginning to make its way down my body. I let my eyes wander tensed slightly with every move he made.
My eyes began to travel lower, across his broad ch3st and down his washboard abs that led to that deep v that seemed to be pointing me further down.
“I love when you look at me like that…”
I licked my l!ps as I cleared my throat, I could feel myself start to blush.I leaned forward as Dane slid in behind me.
He gently pulled me so I could lean back on him.
After relaxing in his arms for a few minutes, I couldn’t stand it anymore.
It had been too long since we had been together. I slowly turned around, careful not to splash any water out of the tub, and straddled him. I slowly started planting soft k!sses across his ch3st as I made my way up to his neck.
His hands gripped my hips tightly and I felt him start to grow beneath me.
“F*ck…” he whispered as I started k!ssing and s*cking on his neck.
I sat up a little then slowly slid myself down on him.
He leaned his head back as he moaned lowly. His hands were no longer on my h!ps but traveling all over my body as I slowly started to bounce.
I started bouncing and grinding faster, needing more.
The familiar heat building quickly.
I gasped as Dane flicked his tongue across one of my n*s, “Yes!”
I moaned as I tangled my fingers in his hair.
Dane growled, sending chills up my spine as he grabbed my wa!st and stood moving us to the bed.
My l!ps crashed into his as he walked, water dripping from both of us.
He tossed me onto the bed, then quickly grabbed me, flipping me over onto my knees.
Without my waist.I buried my head in the sheets as I screamed out his name.
It didn’t take long before I was falling over the edge.
Dane’s grip tightened as he thrust a few more times and I felt his hot seed filling me.
He rolled over, pulling me with him, “I love you, babe,”
Dane whispered as he k!ssed the back of my head.
“I love you too,” I said breathlessly as silence filled the room.
I woke the next morning to the sun shining through the curtains and Dane had already gone from the bed. I gr0aned as I stretched out my sore muscles, looking at the bedside clock. I jumped out of bed when I saw it was already ten o’clock.
As I hurried to the closet to get dressed, I could smell bacon cooking.I pulled on some sweatpants and a t-shirt, making my way down the hall.
Just as I was about to look in Kyra’s room, I heard Dane’s voice, “And no dating until you are thirty. I know…I know…I’m going to have my hands full keeping them away from you…”
I peeked around the corner to find Dane holding Kyra in his lap having a full-on conversation with her.
She was staring at him with a huge smile plastered on her face.
I stood there quietly as I watched them.
“Good morning,” Dane said, turning towards me.
“Morning,” I replied, walking over to him.
I gently k!ssed him before taking Kyra.
“Why didn’t you wake me up? We have a lot to do today…don’t we?”
I questioned as I looked at him still in his pajama pants.
“Not today. We need a day just for ourselves.No work.No visitors. Just us. We are leave this house until tomorrow. I’m sure you will be hearing from Apollo or Jarek soon too.”
I smiled at him as I sat down, “You are perfect. I’m so thankful I met you.”
And I was. I can’t imagine how my life would have turned out if I had never met Dane.
After breakfast, we spent the whole day playing with Kyra, watching movies, and relaxing.
To my surprise, there were no interruptions the whole day.
It felt a little strange, but I wasn’t going to complain, it was nice to get this time alone.I woke up to Dane standing up, we had fallen asleep on the couch watching a movie.
“Go back to sleep babe. I’ll be back soon.”
He whispered as he hurried to the bedroom.
Of course, I needed to know what was going on, so I followed him, “What time is it?” I asked, yawning.
“Two in the morning. Lay down and try to get some more rest.”
He had changed into some shorts, “Where are you going?”
“Rogues.Four of them. The patrols killed all but one. I’m going to question him now. He’s hurt badly and Ash said he won’t make it to morning. I have to find out who sent him. Colby will be outside the house until I get back. Love you.”
He rushed out the door and I caught a glimpse of Colby already on the front porch.
I walked to Kyra’s room to check on her before I headed to bed.
I lay there in the dark trying to go back to sleep, but there was no way that was going to happen now.
We know who sent them…I thought to myself.
It was Devin and that b***h, and my gut was telling me it had something to do with Kyra. I have to try to find out more about this prophecy.
At some point, I found myself standing at a tree line.
It was still night, but there were no stars to be seen and the moon was mostly covered by clouds.
In the distance, I could see two men standing by what appeared to be a lake.
I couldn’t make out who they were though.
“…she will have strength and speed like no other. All the supernaturals will answer to her. Do you know what that means?? That means we need her…if we take her now, she can be trained to rule the way we want her to. It will benefit us both.”
The other man took a step back as he turned to look out over the water, “Maybe so.I also know that either way, Alpha King Apollo will be coming for you and whoever is standing with you. I’m not convinced that it will be worth a war with him.”
I strained to hear what they were saying.
I recognized one voice though…Devin.
“Are you telling me that bloodsuckers are scared of werewolves?” Devin sneered.
The man chuckled, “No not scared, but we also aren’t stupid, and you say it will benefit us as well, but honestly, I don’t trust you.”
My anger began to boil, and I stepped into the clearing to confront him.
Just as he was turning to look my way, everything disappeared. I sat up panting as I looked around.
Realizing I was still in my room, I jumped up and raced to Kyra’s room.
She was still sleeping.
I sat down on the floor next to her crib as fear crept over me.
Are you okay? Dane questioned through our mind link. I could hear the urgency in his voice.
Yes, I will talk to you later. about the dream I just had. I replayed it over and over in my head.
After sitting in silence with only my thoughts, I couldn’t stand it any longer.I needed to talk to Dane.
Devin wants Kyra.
He went to a vampire for help kidnapping her. I told Dane through our mind link.
I knew he would be able to hear the fear in my voice, but I couldn’t help it.
I had never met a vampire before and didn’t know anything about them.
Within minutes I heard the front door fly open, “Holly…”
I heard Dane as he made his way through the house.
Before I could respond, he was standing in front of me, “How do you know?” he questioned.
I could feel the tears as they burned my eyes.I was terrified of losing my baby.
Dane pulled me to my feet and tried to lead me out of Kyra’s room.
I pulled my hand away and shook my head, “We can’t leave her alone.”
I whispered, trying to stop the tears from falling.
“Ash, Colby, and dad are outside our house.No one will get close without us knowing about it.”
I looked at Kyra sleeping and then walked to her window to make sure it was locked.
Not that it would do a lot of good, if someone really wanted in, they would just break the glass, but it made me feel better anyway.
I let Dane lead me to the kitchen and sat on the barstool as he made us some coffee.
“How do you know that?” he finally asked me, I took a deep breath as the tears I had been holding back began to fall.
As I told him about my dream, I could feel him tense.
“At least he hasn’t convinced the vamps to help him yet anyways…and little does he know that we have somewhat of a truce his lap,”
“I swear to you they won’t ever get her.”
