I pulled up into the driveway of Angels home and sat there for a moment, collecting my thoughts.
MATE! GET TO SEE MATE!
Yes. I can wait to see her again..
I opened up the car door and stepped out into the cool night air. Taking a deep breath, I closed the door and walked up the drive, pausing at the door.
Here we go.
I knocked on the door, then heard someone running through the house before the door swung open, revealing August with a giant smile on her face.
”Come in. Shell be down in just a moment. ” She said as she took off running back up the stairs, disappearing behind a corner. As I waited, I looked around. Her house wasn small but it had a homely feeling to it. Cozy.
I hear footsteps coming towards me, looked to the top of the stairs, and I stopped breathing.
Oh my goddess. Shes beautiful!
She started walking towards me and I couldn take my eyes off of her. She stopped a few feet in front of me, blushed and looked at the ground, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.
”You look beautiful Angel. ” I gushed, smiling at her with adoration. She turned an even darker shade of red.
”Thank you.. ” she replied shyly.
”Ready to go? ” I asked as I put out my elbow for her to grab. She nodded and took my arm. Letting me lead her out of the house and to the car. I opened the passenger door for her, holding her hand to help her in, then shut the door softly behind her. I quickly ran around the car, opening my door and hopping in beside her, closing the door behind me.
”Where are we going? ” She asked softly.
”Its a secret. ” I said and winked at her, causing her to giggle. Goddess, I love her laughs.
I started the car and started backing out of the driveway.
I turned down a dirt road, earning a weird look from Angel.
”I thought we were eating dinner? ” She asked curiously.
”We are. Don worry. ” I parked near a clearing and ran around the car, opening the door and helping her out.
”Such a gentleman. ” She giggled, looking up at me.
”Only for you. ” I winked at her, causing her to giggle again.
”This way. ” I said,l as I took her and and pulled her toward the clearing. I heard her gasp and she saw what I had prepared. It was a picnic. With a beautiful red blanket, with small fairy lights stung up in the surrounding trees.
”You did all this for me? ” She whispered in shock, her eyes glassy. I nodded at her and smiled softly.
”I wanted it to be special. ” I walked her over to the blanked and sat down, motioning her to sit. As she did I cleared my throat, gaining her attention.
”I do have something to say. And, if you wish to leave after, you are more than welcome to. I will not blame you. ” I said softly, though it hurt to say those words. I took a deep breath.
”I am a werewolf. My pack is the Red Moon pack and I am their Alpha. ” I blurted out in one breath. I closed my eyes, expecting her to yell at me. When she didn , I opened them to see her smiling softly at me.
”May I see your wolf? ” She asked, still smiling. I looked at her confused, but nodded. I stood up and walked away so I didn hurt her during my shift. I took a deep breath and let Slade take control. I felt my bones break as I turned into my giant wolf. When we were done. We slid to the ground softly, doing our best not to frighten her. We watched as she slowly made her way towards us and knelt down beside us. She put her hand on our head and slowly stroked out fur, causing Slade to purr.
”You are beautiful. ” She whispered and stood up. She looked into our eyes and asked softly, ”Can I have Xavier back please? ” Slade stood up and nodded his big head, giving control back to me as I shifted back into my human form. As I did so she had turned away, somehow knowing I would be naked. I walked behind a tree and found a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, put them on and walked back towards her.
”Im surprised you
e so calm about this. ” I said as I cocked my head at her.
”Well, I just found out my family are werewolves too so… ” she smiled at me. ”It didn really surprise me. But Im confused. I thought wolves didn date because they have mates… ” she trailed off and looked at the ground. Suddenly her eyes widened and her head snapped up, looking me in the eyes.
”Are we…? ” I nodded, smiling softly.
