C6 My mate


The whole table is buzzing and lively. I can't figure out where the conversation begun but I am sure as hell that I don't know where it is heading. Amy looks happy. The grin covering her face as Alexa tells her details of her pregnancy can tell it all. I find myself grinning like an idiot against my own will. What is happening to me? Maybe I should bring Amy over more often. Who am I kidding? I just met her yesterday and I expect her to scream 'yes, ofcourse' when I ask her to come again? I must be out of my mind.

"So Amy, are you done with college?" Sophia asks Amy. I try shooting a warning glare at her but she smiles unaffected.

"Yes," Amy replies. " I am now working."

"Where do you work?" she continues her interrogation.

"I work for a Publishing Company. I work as an editor," she replies with a smile.

"Which publishing company?" Sophia presses. Oh crap! Will you stop making the girl uncomfortable with your stupid interview! I nearly shout at Sophia but Amy answers politely.

"D.M publishing but I work from home," the smile on her face tells all that she really loves her job.

"Oh, that's nice," Sophia says.

"Do you live with your family?" Alexa takes another turn.

"No, I live alone. I left my family behind for the good job offer," she answers.

"Okay, David, tell us about your day," I interrupt to save Amy from the uncomfortable interview.

The room is filled with little boy chitchat as David tells us about his day and all the baby talk. At least Amy is not being cornered with questions. The men are behaving. I'm glad they kept their promise or else Amy would already be running to the hills.

Amy helps Sophia and Alexa clear the table. The kids are running wild around the house and Jose is in the kitchen perhaps drinking wine from the fridge. Patrick is in the living room watching TV. Perhaps some sports or something. Dinner was a success and I am happy that Amy was around to add a colour to the place. The whole house is vibrant. It is no doubt that Amy is liked by everyone around here. Even the little ones cling by her dress as they play hide and seek.

"She is really beautiful," Patrick catches me smiling at Any as she plays with the kids.

"That she is," I say without thinking.

"You love her?" he asks. Do I?

"I don't know," I reply. He smirks and sits beside me.

"What? I just met her yesterday," I say.

"Time is not an issue when you meet someone meant for you," he says.

"What are you talking about?" I am totally confused now.

"It doesn't matter if you met Amy yesterday if you were meant to be together," he explains.

"Are you trying to say that we are fated for each other or something?" I ask.

"What don't you understand? That Amy is your mate?" he asks. Oh my god! I haven't even thought about that. Amy is my mate? Could that even be true?

"You've got to be kidding me," I say. I can't believe it.

"What?" he chuckles. Is he laughing at me?

" She can't be," I whisper. He is really laughing now. Loudly.

"What don't you understand? The way you can't bare being away from her even when you just met her? How her scent sticks to your body or how your body reacts when you are near her. You can't be away from her for a long time or your wolf will lose control. You will develop this sense of being overprotective of her. You don't want anything bad to happen to her or to see her annoyed. Haven't you felt that? Are you going to deny that you haven't been running wild having dirty thoughts about seeing her naked? " he lectures.

"Alright, I get it, " I cut him off. He laughs.

"I thought you wouldn't," he says.

"Is that how you were with, you know, Alexa?" I ask. I can't help the embarrassment I feel talking about this with Patrick.

"Yes, but not as fast as you two," he replies.

"Spare me the crap," is everyone going to talk about how fast we are going? It is not like I am marrying her or something.

"You are finally a mated wolf, man," Patrick says while patting on my shoulder. I look around to make sure Amy didn't hear what he just said.

"Now you can become the Alpha," he adds.

"Cut it out. I never said anything about being the alpha. Who told you that I was waiting for my mate to come so that I can finally become the alpha?" I fume.

"Calm down man. A man can hope," he says.

"Keep dreaming," I fireback. I get up and walk to the kitchen to find my girl.

She is wiping dishes from the dishwasher. I lean against the doorframe and watch her unnoticed. is she really my mate? My long awaited mate? Now everything about my weird behavior starts getting clear. That is why I walk up early this morning to run to her apartment. I wanted to be near her. No, I needed to be near. I watch as she tucks a stray strand of hair behind her ear and the way her lips split into a tantalizing smile when Sophia cracks a joke.

"Hey, admiring something that is not yours?" Jose's voice beams from behind me.

"Fuck off," I wave him away. Amy is mine. Okay, will be, soon.

"Easy, man," he grins.

"What is to grin about?" I ask while folding my hands infront of my chest.

"Nothing," he replies.

"Just the way you look at Amy. You like her?" he asks.

" Yes," I reply with a firm voice.

"I thought so," he says with an evil smirk.

"So when are you going to breed her?" he asks. My face goes pale.

"No, you prick. Not anytime sooner. Amy is still young," I reply.

"So you will still do it at a later time?" he asks.

"I won't answer that," I reply.

"Thought so," he says.

"You haven't bred Sophia. Why are you bothering me?" I inquire.

"We are still figuring out things," he answers.

"I wish you lack," I say sarcastically.

"Prayer accepted," he says with a smile. I roll my eyes at him as he eyes his mate with adoring eyes.
