My Surprise Mate Part 2: Chapter 16

Before I could deepen the k!ss, Blaze pulled away, “We should go…” he trailed off, his voice barely above a whisper as he leaned his forehead against mine. I sighed before nodding in agreement.

Blaze intertwined our fingers as he led me out the hospital doors and toward my parents’ home.

Blaze kept me close to him as we walked, a few pack members smiling at us as we passed them.

“Blaze!” a shrill voice broke through the silence.

I knew the voice too well and immediately could feel my blood begin to boil.

Blaze tensed next to me as Rain ran up to us.

“What do you want, Rain?” he asked her flatly.

Rain had been after Blaze for as long as I can remember.

Before, it didn’t bother me, but now that I know he is my mate, she needs to stop…I’m already struggling with controlling my anger as it is.

Rain flipped her long black hair behind her shoulder as her eyes quickly scanned over me, “I have missed you, and I just wanted to see if you were okay. Is there anything you need?”

She batted her lashes at him as she waited for his response, slowly inching closer to him.

“He’s fine, and no…he needs nothing from you,”

I spat out through gritted teeth. I was trying hard to keep myself in control.I didn’t need to lose my temper with everyone all the time…that isn’t what a good leader does.

She snarled her nose at me as she huffed, “I wasn’t talking to you, Kyra; I was talking to my as*s. Of course, I knew she was lying; I had never seen Blaze give her the time of day, but hearing another female say that broke my little bit of self-control.

Without hesitation, I lunged at her, shifting into my wolf before knocking her to the ground.

Rain quickly shifted into her wolf as well as I circled her growling.

The overwhelming rage I had felt before had come back with a vengeance.

I lost all control, wanting nothing more than to rip her throat out.

Kyra, babe, she isn’t worth it.

You know she is lying anyway.

Rain snarled as she crouched down, readying herself to pounce.

Lying or not, she is going to learn her lesson, I responded to Blaze.

He stepped in front of me, trying to block me from the pathetic she-wolf, but only managed to piss me off more.

MOVE, I commanded Blaze unsuccessfully.

So far, he has been the only one I have no power over.

Of course, he didn’t move out of the way; he only continued to stand in front of me.

“Kyra, she’s nothing, and she’s not worth it. Let’s just go home and spend some time together…”

Blaze said gently.

While Blaze was trying to reason with me, Rain had snuck around him.

“SUBMIT!” I heard my dad yell as he made his way to the field.

Rain snarled as she tried to fight his command.

It didn’t faze me, though, as I stood tall, growling at her.

“SUBMIT NOW!” Dad commanded her again as he stood between us.

Rain laid down on her back, tilting her head to the side in submission.

Dad turned his attention to me, his eyes full of anger;!I am still your mind link.I huffed before submitting to him.

“Shift back and meet me in my office, Rain. Kyra go home and rest; I’ll speak with you later.”

With that, he turned and stormed off to the pack house.

I stood, shaking my fur out before looking at Blaze and taking off running into the tree line.I was furious, but I was disappointed in myself more than anything. I hated how angry I felt.

It was finally gone, the rage I had been feeling had finally dissipated, and now it was back in full force.

And it took nothing more than a lying, desperate she-wolf to bring it back.

How am I supposed to lead all supernaturals when I can’t even keep it together long enough to make it home.I needed to get my s**t together fast. I knew Blaze was following me, but he was keeping his distance for now, and I was thankful for that.

He always knew when to give me space.

I ran as fast as I could, trying to outrun the overpowering emotions I was feeling. I finally came to a rest at the river, taking a drink of cool water before allowing myself to shift back. I sat on the river bank as Blaze eased his way next to me.

I turned and looked at him, doing my best to keep the tears from falling. I reached out and ran my hand through his soft fur, “I’m sorry, Blaze. I don’t know why that made me so angry. I know I need to do better; I just don’t know how.”

A lone tear paved a hot path down my cheek.

Blaze laid down next to me, his body leaning against my side as I continued to stroke his fur.

“I felt fine. I mean, I felt normal again. The rage wasn’t there, but when she referred to you as her boyfriend, it sent me over the know it shouldn’t have; I guess I have a lot of work to do.”

I let out a sigh as I let myself get lost in my thoughts.

After a long moment of silence, Blaze stood and shifted back to his human form.

He slowly sat down behind me, wrapping his arms around me and pulling me back so I was leaning against his chest, “You know you don’t have to do any of this alone, right?” he k!ssed the top of my head, “I may not know first hand what you are feeling, but I’m here to do whatever you need me to do…even if it is just to sit and listen while you talk it out.”

Blaze was more than I could have ever asked for in a mate.

He was kind, caring, loving, understanding, and patient.

Add in his god-like body, and he was the perfect male.

How did I manage to get him as mine? After several moments of silence, I decided to speak, “I know you are here for me, and I know I have others who are more than willing to help me as well but to be honest, I feel like a huge burden now.”

As I said the words aloud, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my chest, and I let the tears run freely.

Blaze spun me around to face him, hurt flashing through his eyes, “You are anything but a burden. Yes, right now, you are going through some changes, but that doesn’t make you a burden to anyone, especially me.

Everyone goes through life changes, and everyone will need help at some point. I’m sorry if I have ever made you feel that you were a burden…”

I cut him off mid-sentence, crashing my l!ps into his as I tangled my hands into his hair.

Letting the sparks race through my body and warm me gladly gave him. His hands roamed my body, igniting a fire inside of me.
