After being released and making it home, Dane was very attentive, to say the least.
Though I was healed, I still felt weak.
True to his word, Dane had taken a week off.
He had originally said a few days, but after being home for two days he made the decision to take the whole week off.
I tried to convince him not to. I told him I was fine, and that I would have Adria and Genesis if I needed help with anything, but he wasn’t listening to me.
Kyra had become quite a handful now. I loved watching her.
Dane was right when he said she was a fast crawler.
There is no keeping her in one spot anymore, and the first time she pulled herself up while holding onto the couch I cried.
Yes, big ugly tears.
She is growing way too fast.
“And she is out,”
Dane told me, chuckling as he walked back into the living room.
Kyra had decided for the last couple of nights that she didn’t want to go to bed unless it was Dane putting her to bed.
“Have you heard from Apollo?” I asked him as he sat down next to me.
“I talked to him briefly this morning. He is still out searching for Devin. We both agree that if he is still alive it won’t be for long. Most wolves die shortly after their mate is killed.”
To my surprise, Dane didn’t seem to be worried about the fact Devin was still out there, if he was, he was doing a good job hiding it.
“Most…Devin isn’t most. What happens to the ones that don’t die with their mates?” I questioned.
I felt Dane tense beside me, “We’ll deal with that if we have to.”
I didn’t but that isn’t what I asked.
“Not what I asked.What happens to the ones that don’t die with their mates, Dane?” I repeated my question.
Dane looked at me for a brief second, and I saw the worry flash in his eyes, “The few that don’t go crazy. They completely lose their minds and surrender all control to their wolf. When that happens, all they can think about is revenge and bloodshed.”
My heart dropped at his words.
“But Babe, please don’t worry about it. Apollo will find him and if by chance, Devin does come back, I will kill him. He won’t be as strong anymore.”
I know his words were meant to comfort me, but they didn’t.
In fact, the thought of Dane fighting without me broke my heart.
I should be able to help him, but I can’t…my wolf is gone.
Dane grabbed my face as he brought his l!ps to mine.
The k!ss started slow and pa*ssionate. I slid myself over his lap to straddle him as I deepened the k!ss.
This would be the best way to forget everything if only for a little while.
It didn’t take Dane long before he had pulled my shirt over my head, leaving a burning trail of k!sses over my exposed skin.
I needed more though. I stood up and pulled my p*nts off and watched as Dane did the same. I couldn’t help but take in all his glory as he stood in front of me.
His hands gripped my wa!st as he picked me up, our l!ps locking together more forcefully.
I wrapped my legs around his waist as he carried me to our bedroom and kicked the door closed behind him.
Dane sat me down on top of the dresser, causing me to gasp at s*cked my neck.
A soft m*an escaped my l!ps as I melted into him.
One hand traveled lower on my body, stopping at my core.
He continued to plant k!sses all over my neck and chest as he dipped two fingers into my heat.
I couldn’t contain the sounds coming from me.
It just felt so right.
He slowly began pumping them in and out as he continued to l*ck and nibble on my mark.
Sending sparks through my whole body, setting me on fire.
“Dane…please…I need you,” I panted as my l!ps found his.
He stifled a m*an with his mouth as he slid into me, filling me to the brim.
Oh god how I have missed the feeling of being completely connected to him.
Everything always seems to melt away when we are together.
All of my doubts, worries, and uncertainties.
For a while, the world stops turning and it’s just the two of us.
I barely noticed as Dane laid me on the bed, flipping me over on all fours. I screamed out as he entered from behind.
The familiar feeling of release building quickly.
When his fingers started rubbing circles on my sensitive bud, it sent me over the edge.
I gripped the sheets as I screamed out his name, soon feeling his hot seed coat my insides.
Dane fell on the bed, pulling me against him as he k!ssed the top of my head, “I love you so much, I don’t think I could ever survive without you,” he whispered in my ear as I dozed off.
The next morning, I woke before Dane.
He looked so peaceful and relaxed.
His full l!ps slightly parted as he took in deep, even breaths.
I smiled before softly k!ssing his cheek and sliding out from under the My heart has never felt so full.
The amount of love I now feel is something I never thought I would.
After taking a quick shower, I made my way into the kitchen to start cooking breakfast.
I pulled out the eggs and bacon and then I heard Kyra, “Da da da da,” my eyes widened in surprise.
I half walked, half ran to her room.
She was sitting up in her bed staring at the door.
As soon as she saw me, a huge smile broke out across her face.
“Good morning sweet girl,”
I cooed as I walked over to her crib, “what were you saying in here?”
I picked her up and started getting her changed and dressed for the day.
She continued with her babble and da da.
As I slid a pair of socks on her feet, I noticed her staring behind me as she smiled.I turned around to find Dane watching from the doorway.
“Good morning, babe,” I told him as he walked over to us.
Kyra immediately put her hands up for him.
“I thought I heard someone calling me,” he said as he lifted her in the air.
“Hmm, I believe you did.”
If I’m being honest, I really wanted her to say mama first, but it is what it is.
“Is that what woke you?” I questioned.
I didn’t think she was being that loud, but then again, I no longer have werewolf hearing either.
Dane shook his head as he made his way to the kitchen with Kyra on his hip, “No, dad mind linked me. He spoke with Apollo this morning and he will be here within the next two hours to visit.”
My eyebrows shot up in excitement.
Dane nodded his head, smiling, “Really. He told dad he couldn’t stay long but wanted to check on y’all himself. my heart race. I was still waiting for the worst…waiting for him to rip everything I finally had away from me.
