Last you read it ended with Piper's daughter and her running off having a blast. This book is going to be focused on her daughter finding out that her mate is the rebel of the pack, her mother doesn't think he's the best guy for her, in the beginning Tamie thinks him a terrible guy because he's both the bad boy/rebel of the pack. Than again Piper and Bear weren't exactally your normal mates when they started either.
I'm finally nineteen, thought I would be eighteen forever; sorry, my name is Tamie, Piper and Bear's only daughter. I've lost count of brothers, though suprisingly, my mom hasn't. She always reminds me that I have nine older brothers, though one set of quads are the same age as me, they all still treat me like the baby. My dad doesn't let me go off on my own unless Grizz, James, or Victor are with me, but mostly Grizz because he's going to be Alpha in a few years once he meets his mate. I can never escape Grizz's sights, he's too damn protective, I can handle myself, my dad needs to realize that I'm not a baby any more. I confronted my parents about it.
"Mom, dad, can I please just go out on my own for once?" I asked a little irritated.
"Tamie, I don't think you should, at least take..." My father started.
"Go ahead sweetheart. Just be careful." My mom interrupted.
I squeeled, "Thanks mom, I love you." I ran out the door to the trail I always took.
This trail had been the same one my mother and I took when I was younger, but today, I was taking a different route. There was this fork in the path that had these large paw prints and I wanted to see where those paws led, I mean they could be old or new, who knows. I was walking towards the path, which in turn meant walking through the clans' huts, everyone in the clan knew whoes daughter and sister I was and knew not to mess with me, mostly because I kick ass in fights with some of the wolves, but alos because my brothers scare them. While I was walking down the line I heard the same laugh from the rebel of the wolves in our clan, he was a rebel, bad boy, and above all else, a chick magnet. I was like my mom, I was thick so he never looked my way, or at least I don't think he did, but he still messed with me, Grizz even kicked his ass when he challenged him. I think he still has the claw marks too. His wolf form was a dark brown and it was almost a black, if I remember correctly. He never listens to the Elders or my dad, hell, he never even listens to his parents, some say he doesn't have a destined mate, but heaven help the girl that mates with him. Though with my parents it was different, they never told me how they found out, though it will be different for me when I find my mate. It will be a strong attraction between us that is so strong that it will be like impossible to ignore, plus the females feel like this burning in their hip, but until you completely fall in love with your mate and all, you don't get the mark. Though I've only ever felt it once and that was when Grizz was fighting with that rebel wolf, it felt as if someone was pushing fire against my left hip, I doubled over in pain. If Jake hadn't seen me doubled over in pain before Grizz, than he would of lost the fight, it was when I turned seventeen, Jake took me away and the pain stopped as we walked away. I told Jake and he said that my mate must have been in the group and that he was dangerously close to cause me so much pain. I shook it off before my parents could see me in pain like this than I just went home with two of my older brothers following me. Their names' were Max and Kell, they were two of five boys in the litter before me and my other brothers. The other's names' are: Tim, Kyle, Ben, Red, Fang (he has like these sharp ass K9's), and Van. So many brothers that my mate just might fear meeting my parents, though the Elders know who my mate is and they won't tell me.
Though the rebel wolf, as he is known, was 6'6'', long dark brown hair, ice blue eyes, muscular, well toned, and always wore torn up jeans and no shirt most of the time. Though he never wears a shirt if he's going to change form, he normally changes form just to impress the girls, I have heard of what he looks like in that form, I think he's a brown timber. Clearing my head, I walked towards the exit that was through a few huts and went towards the path. When I was out of sight, I changed into the pure white wolf that few people saw in my clan; taking a running start I went to the trail just in case my parents changed their minds and sent one of my brothers to come and watch me. When I got to the path I looked around and started walking hoping to see the path, but for some odd reason, I felt as if I wasn't alone. My instincts told me to turn and confront my persuer, but I knew better, though it was probably one of my brothers. The other strange thing was, I was starting to feel a burning in my hip, my left hip, I stopped mid stride and cringed. Was my mate near? I asked myself. I looked around and there wasn't anyone there, the burning increased, whoever it was knew I was walking alone because no one was stupid enough to come near me if one of my brothers were with me. And I wasn't about to continue while the pain in my hip increased. I howled out in pain and fell to the ground as the pain kept getting worse, he was getting closer, I shut my eyes and ground my teeth together. I couldn't sense anyone; just as suddenly as the pain started it stopped and when I opened my eyes I saw brown paws near my face. I looked up and there was a large dark brown timber wolf looking down at me, his eyes were this ice blue that were so beautiful. Standing up he put his body against mine and helped me up to my feet and pushed me back towards the clan. I got out of his path and began snarling at him, because I wasn't about to go back because of some stupid pains, but whoever this was, he was my mate. He still had no right to send me back, I finally got my parents to let me go alone on these walks and I wasn't about to leave because my mate wanted me to.
He sat and looked at me as if we were already mated, but I wasn't going to mate with someone like him. He may be responcible for me, but that doesn't mean he needs to control me before I except him as my mate. Glaring at him he didn't move, he didn't even attempt to attack, how strange, I walked up to him with caution and he didn't move, I thought he was one of the worriors the way he was standing and acting, but none of the worriors I saw had fur that looked soft, but at the same time it seemed rough. Normally their fur was trimed and well kept, at times rough looking, but this one, his fur looked soft, a worrior would have shown his true form if he was in the presence of his mate. But this one didn't seem like a normal worrior, in fact, he didn't even look like one, he stood like one, but didn't act like one. Was his father a worrior? I stopped my snarling and stood up straight to look at him, his eyes were an ice blue, which was strange for a timber of his color to have. He looked at me and got into an attack position, now this is what I was waiting for, snarling at him the burning had come back. His snarling stopped at the same time the burning had stopped, it was as if he knew that I was hiding the pain. He went back to his stance and puffed out his chest, he was toying with me. Why was he playing these stupid mind games? He was acting like a child. I thought to myself.
"I may be acting like a child, but at least I can rest easy knowing my mate can protect herself against others when I am not around." He said through his mind.
I looked at him in shock, he knew I was his mate and yet he was still playing with me, though I couldn't do as he was doing because I wasn't old enough to do so. He was much older than me, probably in his twenties or something, but the fact that he was toying with me just made me mad as hell. I didn't want to turn my back on this guy, I mean he might be my mate, but that doesn't mean I'm going to trust him right away. He returned to attack position and when I returned to mine, Grizz, Kell, and Red came snarling from behind; while Grizz stood his ground Kell and Red pushed me back towards the house protecting me, not taking their eyes off of Grizz and my mystery mate. The man that Grizz was snarling at backed away with his head low, taking notice to Grizz's dominence and role in the pack. I was forced to change form once the timber was gone and I was wearing a white gown that I always wore after I changed from my secondary form. I stormed off back home as my brothers changed back, I couldn't believe that my dad had taken back what he said. As I was walking Kell and Red ran ahead while Grizz caught up with me and I saw that look on his face that said 'you know better than to come out here alone' look. "Tamie, what were you thinking? If dad hadn't told us that you were out here alone, who knows what might of happened." He snarled.
"Grizz, I was handling it just fine, I didn't need my big brothers to come and save me. I can fight my own battles just as well as you can, I'm not a pup any more Grizz. You may be taking dad's place as alpha, but that doesn't mean you have to fight my battles for me. Grizz, let me fight my own battles, I'm no pup that needs her brothers to protect me whenever a mystery wolf wants to test my fighting skills." I said tired of Grizz giving me the same talk and treating me like a pup.
"Tamie, dad worries about you, and I'm not trying to act like the alpha, but I have to protect you from people like him. Jake told me about that burning you've been feeling, since your mate has yet to show himself, it's our job to make sure you're safe till he claims you." He said as we approached the hut. I stopped in my tracks and looked back at Grizz and I saw him cring after he said 'claims you'.
"Claims me? Claims me? I'm not someones property Grizz, I'm a person, not a damn object, not a toy for someone to take and say mine. I don't belong to anyone, not even my mate. I have this to say about the bastard, he's gonna have a hell of a time 'claiming me'." I growled as my mom and dad came out with the others following.
I stormed off not going towards the house, but glaring at my father as I walked away. I didn't have any shoes so I felt the grass on my feet and when I came to a grassy hill I sat down and held my knees to my chest trying not to cry as someone walked up. It was my mom. She sighed as she sat down next to me, I turned my head looking away. She just looked up at the sky and started nudging me with her elbow trying to get my attention. I looked like my mom in so many ways: I was short, bout 5', long white hair that ended in the middle of my back, dark blue eyes, thick, and quite the bust as well. I let a few tears fall because after all I was still the only daughter amunst over protective brothers and a father who didn't even trust me enough to let me go out on my own. She nudged me one more time and got my attention, looking at her, the rimes of my eyes were red from the tears I tried to hold back. I leaned over to put my head in her lap as she stroked my hair.
"Sweetheart, don't let your brothers get to you." She said putting her hand on my shoulder.
"It's not my brothers that I'm mad at, it's dad, he doesn't trust me enough to let me go out on my own. He stills treats me like I need protection when I'm old enough to take care of myself. I can't believe he sent the boys to watch me." I said as tears started falling.
"You're his only daughter out of nine sons, he wants to keep you safe because we almost lost you when you were born. Believe it or not, but he does all this because he cares about you and he wants you safe. That's why he acts the way he does, though for what he did he'll be sleeping in the guest room for a few nights." My mom said laughing.
I laughed wiping away the tears, "I love you mom." "Love you too, sweetheart, now, lets get back." She said bringing me to my feet as she got up.
As we walked back I ran my hand over my left hip and it was tender to the touch, he was trying to get me to feel my mark before he revealed himself. I had to tell my mom that I know my mate's secondary form, but would she take it well. I took a deep breath and when we were just minutes away from our home, I stopped her and as I began to shake from being nervous she knew something was wrong.
"You saw your mate, didn't you?" She asked as if she knew the look.
"Who is it?" she asked putting her finger under my chin and lifting my head up.
"I..I don't know, he was in his secondary form so I couldn't really tell. He was a brown timber and he seemed to be older than me because he was speaking to me telepathically. This is the second time I've felt the burning in my hip mommy, and I'm scared. He was playing with me, I mean one minute he was standing as if he was waiting a command like a worrior, but he didn't look like one, than the next he was ready to attack me the way I was about to attack him." I said playing with the satin tie on my dress.
"Strange, normally a male wouldn't want to fight his mate. I'll talk to the Elders later today and see what they say about this." My mom said as concerned as I was. She knew I was frightened because I bearly ever call her 'mommy', though if he causes me harm, my brothers will be the last thing he has to worry about, believe me, my mother can be very frightening. She gave me a calming smile and we went on our way back to the house where my brothers were fighting about something, but when we got closer I saw that it was my dad and uncle fighting about something (again). I remember when I was little they would fight while they were putting something together, but normally it ended with my dad sleeping in the guest room for a few days. I don't know what happens when my aunt gets hold of her mate, but it probably ends the same way with him too. We got down and as soon as my mother cleared her throat they stopped and my dad was in his secondary form about ready to claw at my uncle. He changed back and my Uncle Alexander got up dusting off his suit, they were both smiling like they had done nothing wrong. I heard my mother growling as my aunt came walking up with her arms crossed over her chest, though I would've gotten in trouble as well, I just had to laugh and I knew that my mom and aunt were laughing too. When my father got up my aunt and uncle went home because I guess the two had to fix something and it ended with them almost killing each other. Though funny, my father had a permanent place in the boy's hall. It was funny, mostly because my father was already in trouble because he sent my brothers to come and watch me, I mean hell, I was in the presence of my mate. I went inside to change my gown from the slip because I wasn't going to walk around in this, I mean I had classes to go to, I was learning to be a healer and the teacher was one of the oldest female wolves in our pack. The Elders fear that she may pass any day now and I still had much to learn from her before I was ready. I got inside and changed into a long sleeve dress that drug the ground, it covered my feet and with the slip under it just in case I had to change to get home later that night. I told my parents and I ran off to find her hut because I was running late, she didn't tollerate tardyness and I was already reading enough remodies to make a sane wolf go nuts. I slid into the clan and kept running when I ran into the shirtless rebel that looked down at me as if he were pissed, I growled and scrammbled to my feet and kept running towards her hut. I got to her hut in record time, I was doubled over in her door way trying to catch my breath. She was standing at her podium and there next to her were a pile of books and a few ingrdiants, shit, I thought, I forgot that I was showing her what I mixed with what to make which remodies. I took a deep breath and walked in, picking up the top book I opened it up to where a book mark was held and started making a healing powder, she didn't say anything, though I had a bad feeling I was going to get a lechure after I was done with the powder. It required: Dry tree root, dry aloe leaves, and a few drops of water. I stood back as she checked the powder and when she was sure it was purfect she put it into a small sack and smiled at me.
"You were late again Tamie." She said returning to her remodies.
"Sorry Madam, I was out for a walk and when I finally got home I didn't realize that I needed to get ready." I said leaving out the part about running into my mate.
"Well, take a few of those books with you and study for next week." She said handing me a small bag to carry the books.
"Why not tomorrow?" I asked taking the bag.
"The rain is coming, so you best get home before you get caught in it." She said shoing me out the door.
I nodded and went out the door. Rain here lasts for at the most, three days and if you get caught in it, you might as well go to the Elders because when a wolf is caught out in the rain for too long they lose what sanity they have. I took a short cut home as the rain started, but I couldn't run all the way home in the rain, there was an old den near by that I knew of and often went to to get a few things for remodies and no one lived there so, it was a good place to hide out from the rain. I ran into the den and there was a fire burning, I pushed my wet hair back and looking around there was an unfamiliar scent, it was, Pine and sute? It was porbably from the fire, but the scent was so strong that it was almost hypnotic. I set my pack aside and grabbed a bit of fire wood and lit it so I could go and see if someone had gone deep into the den. I held the torch up and looked around the den before walking back, there wasn't any one from what I could see, though you can never trust what you can't see. Walking in deeper I heard something scratching against the wall of the den, I followed the sound and found myself doubling over in pain, not again, great, alone with me pshycotic mate. I went forward with caution as the burning increased and I didn't want to show that I was in pain, I needed to stay alert and ready to fight, though if the pain got any worse I was going to have to back away and see the guy when he came forward. But I wanted to see who this was and when I came closer, he turned towards me and you wouldn't believe who it was.
"You!" I said in shock.
"Tamie, good to see you again.'' He said standing up.
"What are you doing here?" I asked still a little angry.
"Same as you, getting out of the rain." He said walking over to me.
"How do you know my name?" I asked backing away.
"I should know my own mate's name, shouldn't I?" He asked putting his hands in his pockets.
"I am not your mate." I said putting the the torch between us.
"Then why are you trying to hide the fact that your side feels like it's burning?" He said gesturing to my left hip.
I looked at my hip and I guess I was favoring it a bit, but that didn't mean he was my mate, ok, maybe it did. He didn't have any right to point it out, I didn't even know his name, but I didn't want to know his name. Snarling I stormed back towards the entrence of the den and picked up my books, the rain had gotten heavier, but I wasn't going to spend the next few days with him. But he didn't do anything wrong. I told myself as I was almost outside the den, but he also wanted to attack me and he was purposly causing me pain just to prove that I was his mate. Shaking it off I walked out with him following.
"C'mon on Tamie, come back inside. I'll stay on my side and won't do or say anything to you. You're gonna get sick, come back in." He said not leaving the den.
"No, I'm not coming back in there." I said as the rain kept coming down.
"Fine, if you're gonna be that way, I'll just do this." He said coming out into the rain.
Picking me up bridle style he brought me back in while I was yelling at him to put me down. He rolled his eyes and put me on the floor and walked over to the other side taking his shirt off to let it dry, pulling my legs close I was shivering. He put more wood on the fire and sat back down and left his shirt near the fire to dry, his jeans were still dry, thank the gods he left those on. I couldn't stop shaking, but I wasn't about to follow his actions and lay my wet dress by the fire to dry, I wasn't that intent on getting warm. Though I would if he would stop looking at me as if I were something to eat. He pulled out a fruit and bit into it, than he tossed me one and just looked back at the fire and threw more wood on it to keep it going. He was being nice, but I still felt as if I couldn't trust him, he was my mate though and I needed to learn to trust him because if I couldn't even trust my mate than we were going to have a few problems later on. Taking a deep breath I said thank you and that I was sorry. He shrugged and threw the core out into the rain.
"Could you close your eyes or turn around so I can get out of this, I'm freezing to death." I said pulling at my dress.
He nodded and closed his eyes and I took the dress off and put it next to his shirt to let it dry a bit, I walked back to my spot and pulled a book out and started reading it. I looked up every now and again and he was staring at me as if he were trying to figure me out or read me like a book, it became nearly impossible to focus so, I thought to get to know a little more about my "mate". I put the book away and sat with my legs crossed and leaned over to talk to him. He leaned forward leaving one of his legs bent and leaned on his knee.
"What is your name any way?" I asked thinking twice about leaning forward.
He laughed and it was a loud deep laugh and this was the first time I actually focused on what he sounded like, it was deep and very sexy.
"The name's Fury." He said with a smile.
"So, where did you hear my name?" I asked holding my knees close and tight.
"Your brothers say it when they're out and about, so I guess that's where I heard the best name ever." He said with a smile.
I couldn't help but blush, no one had ever said my name was the best they ever heard, but than again, my brothers were always careful to not say my name around the wrong people. Though when he said my name, it was like angles singing...wait, what in the hell was I doing? I shook myself mentally and came back to the real world and the fact that I was in the precence of my mate. Closing my eyes for a moment, I could hear his heavy boots on the floor and he was by my side, heat was raidiating off of him, either that or his dominence that showed so well. I wanted to pull away, but there was something keeping me there, in his arms, lying my head against his shoulder he was like a teddy bear. He was strong, but not too strong, he was tender, and above all else, he smelled strangely like rain, as if it were his natural scent. I knew my parents would be worried about me, but I couldn't leave because my home was too far and the rain was too heavy. Before I could do or say anything we were lying next to each other on the floor near the fire, oh gods he was so warm. I relaxed against him and I could feel his arm drapped over my hip and he was playing with the fabric of my slip. Before I knew it, I had fallen asleep craddled in his arms.
I woke up the next day and I was alone, the rain was still coming down, the fire was still going strong, but there was something missing. Where was Fury? I stood up and his shirt was still next to the fire, he couldn't have gone out into the rain, that was suicide. I grabbed a piece of wood and lit it like a torch and went towards the sound I had heard yesterday. This time I didn't say anything, I just stood there and watched him, he was using a piece of burnt wood as charcoal and he was drawing something, taking a closer look I saw that it was me. But it was only my face and my shoulders, he was a great artist, and he got all my features perfect. He put the bit of wood in the fire to get more sute on it, and before he pulled away from the wall he put a line where my bust was and pulled away. He set it aside and turned to see me and he was smiling.
"Do you like it?" He asked hitting his hands against his pants to get the sute off.
"It's beautiful. But I'm nothing a value to draw." I said looking at the drawing.
"What? Of course you are, I've been working on this for about three weeks and when I found out that there was going to be rain for the next few days, I thought that this would be the best time to work on it. And since I had the real thing I could get the details better." Fury said smiling.
Tears started swelling in my eyes, no one was that sweet and no one ever said such sweet things to me. My mom always said that your mate is that one person who made you feel whole and that they would love you no matter what, but this guy was the worst wolf in the pack and my dad, especially my brothers, would be furious if I just blurted out that my mate was this man. For some reason a chill ran up my spine, only to find out that Fury was making circles on my lower back with his index finger. My face began to heat up as he continued his circles, I wanted to pull away, but before I could he pulled me into him and kept his hand on my lower back. He ran his hand down my arm and laced his fingers through mine and looked down at me with a smirk. As he came closer I heard my name being called, it sounded like my mom. Relief and frustration came over me, I didn't want him to kiss me, but I wanted him to kiss me. I pulled away as my mom called again, I ran back towards my mom as I did I could hear him cursing and when I came to the entrence my mom was standing there semily dry, the rain had softened enough so that my mom could come and look for me. I grabbed my dress and after I put it back on I took one last look back down the den and I could just bearly hear Fury's curses. I guess I wouldn't get to know more about my future mate, but maybe this was for the best. We started back home as the rain started to get harder again.
When we got inside I went to my room to get into something warm and dry, ignoring my father and brothers who kept asking where I had been. While I was changing and before I could pull on a pair of sweats that my aunt had gotten me, I looked at the bit of tender skin where my mark would be. The outline was already beginning to show, but I had to except him as my mate before the whole mark burned into my side. I pulled on a shirt and sat on my bed with my legs against my chest, this was going to be a very long day. I had no clue how I was going to explain to my mom that my mate and I almost kissed and that he was already slowly marking me as his. Fear tore through me as my mother came through the door and my father following with a face as red as a brick, sadly I knew that face all too well, because my brothers often fought and he and my uncle were often mad at each other. He was furious, but I wasn't sure if he was furious about me being with my being gone and not sending word or if my mom had told him that I knew my mate's secondary form.
My mom came over and sat by me on the bed and my father just stayed by the door. He was about as red as a brick, he was so angry, but I just hoped that my mom hadn't told him that I knew who my mate was and last night, I found out his name and this morning I found out that he truely cared about me. I couldn't even figure how to explain it, though if my mother had mentioned the brown timber to my dad and he put two and two together, I guess he would of figured that my mate was the rebel/ bad boy of the pack. Though if he ever found out that I spent the night with him, he would kill me, either that or send me away for a year to stay with my healing teacher. Either way, I don't think I could handle being around her for a year, I can barely stand a couple hours with her, she's always making me do things a million times over even though I've done it right the first ten times. My mom cleared her throat to get my attention and when I looked at her my father's face had softened and he was leaning on my dresser.
"Tamie, we're sending you to stay with your healing teacher for a while, she'll be leaving the clan and she wants to bring you along so you can focus on your lessons a little better." My father said crossing his arms.
Great, going to spend a year with my damn teacher, don't get me wrong I like my teacher, but I don't think being sent away is going to do any good for my situation. I just nodded and put my forehead against my knees as they walked out. Now, let's assess my situation, shall we? I just found out who my mate is and I'm being sent away for a year to work on my lessons, doesn't seem like a problem. Right? Wrong, I mean I know I said 'may the Gods help the poor female that mates with him', may the Gods help me, I never thought that I would fall in love with him, never in the right mind had I ever thought that I would be destined to be with Fury. Though if my father finds out he'll probably do all he can to keep me away from him, even if he can keep me warm, makes me feel safe, and makes me feel, so...STOP IT TAMIE JAMES! I'm not falling in love with him, I'm not going to fall in love with him, no way in this sane world am I falling in love with Fury, the bad boy, rebel wolf, even if he is the most warm wolf that's ever held me. And the most tender, oh, what I wouldn't give for just another minute in his arms. TAMIE, KNOCK IT OFF! Maybe spending some time with Madam would help me clear my head of all this, I didn't need this. I got off my bed and started packing my things, but as I was folding a dress I fell to my knees in pain, my side was burning, Fury. Before I could say his name I felt his warm arms around me, a smile spread across my face. But not from the fact that the pain had stopped, he was kissing my neck as his hands held a tight, tender, grip on me, if it hadn't been for the knock at the door he probably would of been holding something else. I turned and clearing my throat I gave them permission, it was Kell, Red, and Grizz, I crossed my arms hiding the fact that I was in pain as they walked through the door. But while I was glaring at them I saw Fury behind the door, I made sure to keep my attention on my brothers. They walked in and said they were sorry for what they had done, I smiled at them and accepted their appologies and they left the room; when the door closed Fury was gone. I guess it was just my imagination getting the best of me, I thought as I returned to my bag and put in a few more slips. I jumped at the feel of someone's breath on my neck, it was warm, very warm, oh gods, I couldn't believe how warm their breath and embrace was. Before I knew it I felt a pair of lips pressed against my neck and a tongue sliding along after a playful nip here and there. I said his name breathless as my head began to swim.
"Fury." I said with a ragged breath.
"Yes, my love?" He asked wrapping his arms around me.
"I..I...lost my train of thought." I said as he pulled me into him more.
"That's no good." He said against my neck, "Allow me to help to retrieve that train." Fury continued as he pressed his lips against my neck.
I couldn't find the words as he kept at what he was doing, dear gods, I wasn't supposed to be doing this before it was time. I was the only female who acctually followed the rules and laws of our people. Though my mom had been raised on earth she still followed the laws and rules of our people, this was unnatural, though it felt so good to be with a man of Fury's standing, whatever that was, he was fearce and forcful, but at the same time gentle and tender. His hand grazed my stomach as he played with the strings of my sweats. I knew the words I wanted to say to get him to stop, but they were lodged in my throat, I was forced to bite my lip so I could try and hold some sanity I had to keep to allow myself to stay calm as he trailed his kissed to the other side of my neck and I felt his hand on my thigh bunching his fist up in the fabric. Just tell him to release you or you'll tear his throat out with you bear hands, I told myself as he kept me close.
He whispered something to me, but I couldn't hear him, I was too hypnotized by what his hands and lips were doing to even pay attention to his words. Though I did catch it when he repeated it a second time.
"I except you as my mate Tamie, you're all I could ever ask for." He whispered into my ear as he nipped the tender skin.
I couldn't find the words to say what I needed to say, though I couldn't except him without knowing him, after he had uttered those words the sharp pain in my side had returned ten fold. I screamed and fell to my knees in pain, I couldn't utter Fury's name, just the thought of his name brought me great pain, I screamed for the one person who couldn't bring the burning sensation in my left hip.
"MOM!" I screamed as Fury kneeled next to me trying to stop the pain himself by placing his palm where there was a mark already beginning to form.
Blood curdling screams escaped my lips as my mother broke through the door with my father and ALL my brothers following her. Fury had long left since he saw that he was bringing me great pain. Tears fell in great amounts as I begged for the pain to stop, I wanted it to go, my hip was killing me, when my father was at my side he placed a cold hand where the burning was and that made me scream louder, if that was possible. My father took me into his arms and placed me on my bed where the burning had only increased and it felt as if it were litterally killing me. My parents fearing that my mate had done his worst; lifted my shirt to where they could see my hips their fears had been confirmed, my mate had excepted me as his and it was only a matter of time before I needed to except him before the pain near killed me. They didn't know what to do so my father sent a couple of my brothers to fetch the Elders for help, what good would that do? "Grizz, Red, go fetch the Elders, NOW!" My father yelled making sure they knew that it was urgent.
As they left the room I took my mother's hand and held it tight as the pain kept coming in waves of agony, like a million lashes, a hot brand against my tender skin. I wanted it to end, I wanted to die, anything to end my pain. My father was ushered out of the room as my mother fought to stay by my side to make sure she was there when the Elders finished. They knew better than to fight with my mother when it came to me, next to my father, she was frightening when someone had caused any of her pups pain. Espically her baby girl. The Elders pulled something out and placed it against my hip and the pain only increased causing my mother to scream at them only loud enough to rise over my screams of pain. After a short while the pain stopped and my world went black as my mother held me close, the way she had when I fell ill as a young pup. My mother was the last thing I saw before darkness filled my vision, darkness and fear.
My eyes fluttered open to my mother sitting in my bed with my head in her lap, the pain was gone, but when I tried to move, my side stung like a million wounds that had yet to heal. I ground my teeth as I sat up only letting out slight groans to show that my side was still in a great pain, but when my mom saw that I was trying to move she pushed me back down and told me not to move because she knew I was still weak. I lie down slowly letting out little curses as the pain surged through my body. Though my kind healed quickly, except my mom for some odd reason, we needed time to rest, my mom never left my side that day. I wanted to know why the Elders thought our family strange and why it was so hard for me to change sometimes and why my Aunt never was that used to drinking blood?
"I was never born this way sweetheart, neither was my sister." My mother said in a soft voice recalling her past.
"I thought that you and Aunt Vur were the last unnatural creatures to leave Earth?" I asked holding a small little trinket in my hands from grandparents I never knew.
"I was born human, mortal, as was your aunt. We were brought here by a mad scientist who only wanted to go home himself. We did regret being stuck here, but the moment I met you dad, I knew that this was where I was meant to be." She said with a smile.
"Do you miss your old home?" I asked looking up at her.
"Sometimes, when I look at my family, I think about the craziness of mine when we were all together. I remember all the holidays and birthdays that were spent in my family, it was crazy, much like it is now, but it was fun, but when I look at the family that has been created, I than realize though I could have gone back with the doctor, I never would have had the family I have today. At times I wonder what would have happened if I hadn't gone after your father that day, if I had gone back with the Doc. Would I have been a great mechanic? Would my family be as crazy as it is now? When I was young I was dignosed with something called SIS, I didn't ask about it, I just knew that I would have a hard time having children, but when I came here and your father made me as I am, it was cleared and it became easy for me to have the family I always wanted. Though when you were born the thing I feared as a human came to the surface and I almost lost you. Back home, I most likely would have lost you, here, I have a daughter that reminds me of myself when I was growing up. The Elders say it's destiny that my sister and I came here because Bear was mateless and I was his unknown mate. "Bear changed my life for the better, this is my home, true I do miss my old home back on Earth, but had they never left I would have been raised to stay away from them, and if Bear had come out and said that I was his. I wouldn't of been excepted into society, I would have been an outcast to the mortals, looked down at, not to be trusted by my own kind. You and your brothers would be seen as mixed bloods, but here you're seen as equel to everyone else, though your mother was human, she is a wolf and the best at what she does for the Vampires." My mom said as tears fought their way to stay hidden.
"It's Fury. My mate's name is Fury mama. His standing is unknown to me." I said with my voice still hoarse.
"Fury, he is the son of a General." My mother said as if she knew before I did.
I looked up at her as I recalled his actions from earlier, he was tender, though when I first saw his secondary form he was standing at a hault. Than it made sense, he was the son of a General, my father had brought me to those training sessions many times to test my skills against pros, though I never backed down when I should have, the fact that pain would engulf my side after someone approached. It was only than that I backed down because I couldn't fight. The General said that I would always have a place in his army once my mate was named, though he seemed delighted that my mate was one of his worriors. I wondered if he knew that his son was my mate, next I saw him I would bring the matter up. Though I'm not quite sure if he'll be pleased that his furture daughter-in-law is the only daughter of the pack leader and the only sister of the furture pack leader. I guess those things would be delt with once the time came. My mother left me along in my room to get me something, than, gods forbid I should have a moment to relax, Fury was on my mind the second my mom left. I ground my teeth and gripped my blankets hoping it would stop, gods, I just got up from an ordeal dealing with my damned mark. I cursed aloud, cursing Fury's name and what he had done to me, than as I closed my mouth as the pain had stopped, it dawned on me what Fury had said before my mark began forming. I never repeated the words back to him, I was so unsure, so frightened because I had seen males that had said it and the females say it soon after, than come to find out the male only said it in a moment of passion. I remembered what Fury was doing before he had said those words, it was nothing more than a moment of passion, he didn't mean it, now leaving wouldn't be so hard after all. When the pain had stopped I closed my eyes and slide my hand down my side and my hip stung a bit, but it was a tollerable pain and I was able to walk, but I needed to use walls and furniture for a crutch to keep my sorry ass off the floor. I was leaning on a wall when my brothers saw me and rushed to my aid, pushing them away I kept walking, I was fine, I didn't need their help. I learned that lesson the hard way, I didn't need anyone, not as a mate or to help me, I was lying to myself, but I didn't want what happened to me to be a fluke. I didn't want a moment of passion to become a downfall because those words didn't pass my lips just moments after they had passed his. Kyle and Van came over and helped me to walk, though I was still a little weak, they made a big deal out of it, I mean, it wasn't a big deal. My parents came in and the General was following, I had both my arms over my brothers' shoulders, though they were taller than me, I could still touch the floor, kinda. The General was a tall man, turning grey, probably because he has at least twenty sons and his poor mate has only had sons, sometimes sons are harder to have than a daughter is, females aren't scarce, but males are in greater amounts. "I was informed that you are the mate to my son." The Gerneral said walking in and over to me as I hung onto my brothers.
"Which son?" He asked, I knew he was asking my parents because I was still too weak to say more than I should.
"Your oldest, Fury." My mother said as my father wrapped his arm around her.
"Fury? I figured you'd be mated to him, I knew it the moment he walked into the session that day. You backed down when he walked over. I should have brought it to your attention sooner Bear, the moment I noticed her in pain that day, but I thought that it was just her wanting to quit and rest. I beg your forgivness." The General said kneeling before my father.
"General, your son has caused my daughter great pain, brought her to her knees with simple words that I did not even have to say to my own mate that day all those years ago. General, you have my forgivness, but your eldest does not, he must come to me and ask for it himself." My father said as if he were furious with the fact that Fury had done such and not come to offer his comfort when it had been needed.
"He will be around soon and offer you his appologies Alpha, I will see to it that he does and he will not leave your daughter in such pain ever again." General said coming to his feet.
"Make sure he doesn't play anymore head games! He was going to attack Tamie when we first caught them together." Red said as he and the others came in wipping sweat from their faces.
"Attack, Tamie? Why wasn't I informed sooner?" My father asked furious.
"It was the day you sent us to go and watch her, Fury had been following her, which reminds me, you need to work on your sences baby sister." Kell said following in behind Ben.
"But any way, when we heard growling we took action and he was ready to attack, once a worrior always a worrior." Grizz said coming in behind Jake, Tim, and Fang.
My father's anger grew, he hated it when my brothers told him things long after they had happened. But in all honesty, I think it was the fact that Fury had almost attacked his me that angered him the most, if Fury ever set foot, or paw, in this house, and my father found out, than he would surely be missing a few body parts, especially if my father found out he had set foot in my room and touched me in the manner he had. If you haven't already gathered, my father is more protective over me than my brothers, but he shows his dominence more whenever my mother wants to go visit her sister and she wants to take me along. It's strange the way he acts around us, I mean he and my mom don't normally fight, but when they do it normally ends with him either rooming with one of my brothers, by himself, or back in bed with my mom after a bit of ''convincing''. I could see the anger rising as he looked at me and I could tell that he was imagining Fury in attack position in front of me, he was also probably thinking of the time I had been attacked by a rogue that had been banished from the pack a few days before my tenth birthday. I was alone on the trail, not even two miles away from my home, I was maybe at the most a mile away and my parents could hear me fine, that was really the important because as long as I could be heard, I was fine. It was the first time I had been alone, my brothers had gone with my dad on a training thing and my mom was home talking to her sister. While I was doodling in the dirt I heard a growl in the distance and when I looked up all I saw was a dark black and I thought it was my father or one of my brothers, but when he got closer I saw that there was a bit of white on his face and his eyes were a light blue, I would never forget those eyes for as long as I live. I stood and was ready to run when he attacked me, I screamed for my mom, while I was screaming a large paw came across my neck and than across my side. The pain was more than I could handle, but I kept screaming til I saw another black wolf, and a few brown wolves close by, it was my dad and brothers, my mom and aunt came running up just moments later. My mom pulled me into her arms putting a piece of her dress against my neck as it started to heal, my side wasn't healing so easily and I still have a scar from that wolf to this day. I even have nightmares about him coming to kill me in my sleep, nine years and I still fear a wolf that took my freedom from me. When my parents took me home that night, my father made it clear that I was to have either my mother or one of my brothers with me when I go out like that. After that my fighting became more rigorous and I did practice everyday till my paws bled, I didn't want to feel defenceless again, I made it a personal priority to try and be able to defend myself against anyone who wanted to do me harm or anyone else. My parents think that I have long forgotten what had happened to me, but I won't let it go til that wolf is dead. True I shouldn't be thinking that way because of who I'm going to become, but til that wolf is dead I won't sleep at ease, the General has been searching for the wolf since that happened as well on request of my father because he wants me to be safe, but the search ended long ago because there had been no sight of him.
I had fully healed from the Fury thing and was about to leave with Madam for the next year, I hugged my family good-bye and followed Madam outside and we were off. I didn't mind, but I had never left my family for longer than a few hours and leaving them for a year was going to be harder than I thought because as I walked down the path Madam had taken a million times before tears began rolling down my face as we walked. Madam wasn't the kind to start up a conversation and I didn't mind, I didn't feel like talking any way. We walked for hours, I walked for hours, but never with baggage, but for the strangest reason I had the feeling that someone was watching me, I stopped and looked around only to come to my sences and thought that it was just my paranoia getting the best of me because the last time I let my guard down I ended up with a sevear pain in my damn hip. I followed Madam a few more miles and we were standing outside a sanctuary that looked much like the Elders' temple back home. But the pillars on the outside were much different than the ones back home, Madam pulled me forward and we walked in to my surprise this place was much larger than the Elders' temple. Since I became her apprentice, I always drempt of being able to come here, Madam has many paintings of this palce in her hut and paintings of her with past girls that tried to be her replacement. I was chosen by her personally to be her apprentice and replace her when I turn twenty one, in two years, there was part of me that was so happy about being here, but I would need to learn the way because in a few hundred years I will be bringing my replacement here and she will go through the same thing I will. Madam brought me to the apprentice quarters and told me that I would be rooming with two others that were about my age. I handed Madam her bags and walked in to see two other girls that were wearing skirts and tops that showed their mate's mark, this was going to be a very long year. I put on a smile and walked in and put my bag near the empty cot and the others smiled at me and asked how long I had been an apprentice and if my mate had a hard time letting me go. I groaned and sat down.
"I haven't accepted my mate yet, though he has already accepted me." I said putting my hand on my hip.
"Oh, sweetie, we didn't know, my Mathew was the same way, he was acting like a pup when we first found out." The girl with the pink skirt and white top said sitting in front of me.
"All males are the same, they think they're ready when they know they must earn when they want before it's given to them." The girl in all red said, her skirt was longer than the one in pink & white, and her shirt was long sleeved, not short. "Why do you show off you mate's mark?" I asked because my mom never really gives me a real explination.
"Because when you go out there are males still looking for a mate and when you're not with yours this shows who you're taken by and what their standing is, I'm mated to the alpha of my pack." The one on pink & white said with honor.
"I'm mated to the weapons maker of my pack." The one in red said with the same amount of honor.
"Do you know who your mate is sweetie?" The first one asked.
"The son of a very powerful General, and I'm the daughter of an alpha." I said holding my knees.
"That's rare, my father's a General and I'm mated to a weapons maker." The second one said.
"My mother and father both work in the temple and I'm mated to the alpha, but this is the first I've ever heard of an alpha's child being mated to the child of a General." The first one continued.
"Who's your father?" The alpha's mate asked.
"Bear of the northern wolf pack." I said stating my father's FULL title, yes, I was in the northern pack, by the looks of these girls, they were of either the eastern or western packs, hard to tell.
"My mate is Mathew of the Eastern wolf pack, he speaks of your father often and there is always respect in his voice, even your brothers are quite famous amoungst my people." She said with a bit of shock in her voice.
"My mate is Jason, weapons maker of the Western wolf clan." The other said with the same amount of shock in her voice.
Strange I know, but in order to really understand who's, who, you need to state their whole title unless your mate or father is well known, in this case my father and brothers was well known. There are multiple clans and packs, there isn't much of a difference, but to tell which you are, you MUST say if you are from a clan or a pack, it's very important. My father had the worst temper known when it came to my mom and if anyone dared speak of her in such low terms, they were be scared for life. I smiled, mostly because maybe Mathew's mate would understand were I was coming from because all alpha's are over protective to a point.
"I'm Tamie of the Northern wolf pack, who are you two?" I asked wanting to know their names so I know what to call them.
"Oh, how rude of me, I'm Molly of the Eastern wolf clan." Molly said with a smile.
"I'm Gypsie of the Western wolf clan." Gypsie said with a smile.
"Nice to meet you both." I said with a smile.
"Pleasure is all ours." Molly said with a smile.
"So, how long have you known Fury is your mate, Tamie?" Gypsie asked wanting to know.
"How did you know his name?" I asked her as Molly left and walked out to greet her master.
"Tamie, I'm the daughter of a General, he knows all the Generals of the packs and clans, along with their pups. I knew Fury as a pup, come, let's go talk." Gypsie asked pulling me out to the main hall.
"I've known for a few days, but I just found out a few days ago that he was the General's eldest son." I said still favoring my hip, it was still a little tender.
"My brother's mate favored her hip for about three months after she spoke the words you're meant to speak." Gypsie said as we walked down the hall.
I looked at all the girls who had their hips exposed and looked at Gypsie, "Does every one here have a mate?" I asked feeling a little embarresed.
She laughed, "Yes, most of them have pups of their own, most males can't keep themselves away from their females so they go after them and claim them, and most times they end up having pups, I'll be having pups when I return home." Gypsie said as we walked into a large room full of jars filled with different plants.
"Well, I stand out like a sore thumb." I said as we walked out of the room into a guarden.
"A what?" She asked.
"Sorry, my mother and aunt use it a lot in reference to standing out in a crowd." I explained knowing that my mom was the only mate of anyone's to come from earth.
"Oh, my father says it once or twice, he says it's a saying from the homeland." She said knowing what I meant.
"Do you know what I'm in for? I mean, being mated to a future General and all?" I asked a little nervous.
"Well, Fury will have already taken his place as General by the time you return home. My brother's mate tells me much just in case I should meet someone as lucky as she is, you are going to be the healer of your pack, my brother's is the midwife of our clan, she says that the Generals are rough with their mates and can't control themselves when they start making pups." She said as if it were nothing new, when she looked at me she saw the fear in my eyes, "But, they're also tender when they know they must be." Gypsie said trying to calm my nerves.
That didn't ease my worry, but I wouldn't tell her that, though I think she gathered that it didn't help at all. I looked up at her and took a deep breath, as if I wasn't nervous enough about being mated to Fury, but now I fear of bearing his pups because he might be ROUGH with me! I tried to calm myself down, but I kept thinking about it, he seemed so tender before, but maybe he was just getting me ready for when he is rough with me when that time comes. Gypsie tried to get my mind off the thought of my time to give myself to Fury, now that I think about it the name fits him for what he's about to be. Just to make her feel as if she didn't frighten me, I smiled at her and we went back inside to be taken and tested of our skills and what we've learned. I was learning powders and liquides to heal, others had different methods of healing. As I made a powder to heal an illness I was called out into the main hall by one of the great healers, I dusted my hands off and walked out into the hall with my skirt in my hands, it was a long skirt. I curtsied to them in respect and stood to meet their gaze.
"Tamie, you didn't have to come here, we know that you're in the middle of mating." She said looking at me.
"No disrespect, but I am not in the middle of such a thing, my mate is missing and he has already accepted me as such and I must return the words when I am ready, but I am not yet ready. He left after his words were spoken and when I needed him by my side to get me through the pain." I said with a heavy heart.
"I am sorry Tamie, we were not told that he left as your mark was forming, most of the females here show their marks with honor, but you hide yours as if you're ashamed of it, weather it's completely there or not, you must show your mark with pride and not hide what you are given. Show your mark if you are not ashamed of what he has done, but do not act as if he is the one who hurt you when you were a pup, your time will come for revenge. That's right, I know what happened when you were young, though you will be a healer, we will allow you to take back any pride you lost to the rogue nine years ago." She continued as I put my hand over my left hip.
"How'd you know about that?" I asked as my past came flooding in, the reason my mark hurt was because there was still a scar from my past that I refused to cover with a remody that would get rid of it.
"I'm one of the oldest healers, I know everything, once you allow that to heal, your heart will heal as well." She said putting her hand over the four marks hiding under my dress.
I had my heart broken that day as well because my freedom was all I truely had as a child because all females know that once you are mated you don't have the freedom you had when you were free. My heart broke because I lost the freedom I loved, but what she meant by letting my scar disappear, my heart will heal and allow me to give Fury all my trust and my love. Though I refuse to let myself admit that he already has my love, hejust needs my trust, something I need to regain by showing that I am either strong enough to let go of my past or that I may cross paths with the wolf that took my freedom and trust from me. Either way, I think I may let go of my past and give Fury all I have to offer as his mate. I smiled as I returned to my powder back in the other room and continued to make sure it was perfect to hand off to a healer in a near by clan, it was the Southern clan, though there was a healer from the Southern clan here along with the Southern pack, they still had the orriginal healer there because they were dealing with a few bad wolves that attacked them often and that would be the real test. Once some of us are ready, we plan to go and help, but I have a bad feeling about going to the Southern clan because I think that my past may be there hurting the innocent. I finished the powder and put it into a small bag and went back to making a liqure that would heal a wound made by any paw. Others were doing simple little remodies, but I liked to challenge myself, Gypsie stayed close to me and Molly was with other Alpha mates because she felt that she needed to be with them, Gypsie and I would become very close over the next year and she was just as skilled as I was when it came to healing, maybe we would be the ones to go to the Southern clan and help to heal the wounded.
Six months had gone by and each of us are being sent home one by one, Molly was sent home earlier this week and Gypsie and I were preparing to go to the Southern clan to help the healer because the wolves had become more aggresive and she was only one healer. I closed my bag just moments after Gypsie had closed hers, there were a small number of healers left behind and those who were left were either being sent home or going to the Southern clan, Gypsie and I were one of those people being sent to the Southern clan. Pulling on my bag we headed out to the main hall to meet with the others and the great healer so she could lead us to the clan that was in dier need of help, we were told that the other great healers were already there, we were told to change into our secondary forms as soon as we left the sanctuary. As soon as we were out we changed and ran as fast as we could, the stronger ones were placed outside to protect the others, in other words Gypsie, Cathy, Margo, June, and I were place on different sides to protect the others as we ventured into dangerous territory. We kept our ears and eyes open to any sound or sight that might sound or look like the enemy; I was placed on the left side while my bag was held by one of the others in front. We were forced to pass our bags to those on the inside so we could fight if needed, all of us were on high alert, if we senced anything a threat we were to take action and fight, but if there was only a minner threat than we were told to only keep those at bay. I was one of the only white wolf amungst the healers, others were either black, brown, grey, or tan. I heard a stick and stopped in front of a group of trees and I could see a big black wolf, I barked softly to get Margo's attention, she was my partner if we had to fight, she pulled away and followed me into the trees and there was a pack of black wolves, two saw us and charged at us. We did the same and the fight was on, I clawed at one's face and Margo went for the throat, showing teeth, I went for the throat and got his shoulder, Margo had her's at her mercy, I sunk my teeth into his shoulder and pulled away clawing at him as he clawed at me. There was a howl and the two we had been fighting had left, the one that called them back had the same eyes as my attacker, my father had scarred the man and he had the same scar, it looked as if it were still fresh, now, this was personal. We rejoined the group at a large tree and reported that it was the pack of rogues, but only a minner battle and I left out the part about seeing the wolf that wounded me. Though the group was of eighteen girls, protection was a must, most of them had mates that demanded their safe return, no doubt Fury wanted me to return safely as well. We came to the entrence of the clan and changed back to our base forms and walked into the clan, I was breathing heavy as we looked at the injured wolves, no doubt that the wolves had come through before we came in. Margo and I had injured two of them, but from what we could recall, there was a good 10, 15 wolves in that rogue pack, we knew our duties in protecting the others, but from what I knew the Northern pack had arrived days ago and their General was fearce and fought like a true General. I knew it had to of been Fury, but if he were here than I wouldn't be able to fight my own fight and resolve what I needed to. We were taken to a hut large enough to hold us all and we were allowed to roam that grounds before we were to meet the healer of this clan. Gypsie stayed behind with Margo, Cathy, and June to rest because we were guards and I had a feeling the other three had met their own battles while Margo and I were fighting. I wanted to find Fury and speak with him about what happened. Walking I came across a man doing a few push-ups and he was well toned, probably one of the worriors from my pack, I tapped his shoulder and he jumped up and kneeled noting whose daughter and sister I was and the amount of respect to give. "What can I do for you Tamie?" He asked putting his fist over his heart.
"I'm looking for Fury. Is he here?" I asked bowing to him knowing he was second in command.
"He is running a scan with the others, he will be back soon." He said pointing out to a hill.
"He's the new General, is that correct?" I asked remembering of being informed of his new standing a few months ago.
"Yes, he has been the General for three months now and is doing as well as his father." He said as a few wolves began entering the clan.
It had to of been Fury's group because they were well in tune with each other as they ran, but Fury was no where in sight, I told his second in command that I would be with the other healers and to come and find me so that I may speak with him. I returned back just as June walked out with her mate, she was mated to a worrior and he was here to collect her and take her home because they had pups that needed her. I said bye and walked in to see Margo, Cathy, and Gypsie sitting in silence, I sat down between Cathy and Gypsie, the others were tending to the wounded, we wouldn't be needed til late this afternoon. Margo and Cathy started singing a little song that we all knew well enough to sing along or play the beat.
"You can seek the truth, you can seek the words you need to help you with what you need to heal." Margo and Cathy sang in unison as Gypsie and I started the beat.
Gypsie began humming and I started beating the floor with my knuckles in a slow and steady rythem singing 'de-de-dum-du-wa' over and over again. "You can show the world you are stong." Margo sang.
"Or you can show you are weak." Cathy sang.
"Just show who you are and it will show that you are as strong as you wanna be, give the world a way to believe, show them they can be strong while they are weak." They sang in unison.
"Give the whole world reason to believe in you, never show that you are weak, show you are strong. Keep the weak burried inside and show the world you are strong." We all sang as I picked up on the beat and Gypsie started to do the beat with me and I silence my 'de-de-dum-du-wa's' and kept my focus on the beat. We all sang the final verse together as a knock came to the door, "Give the world a stronger you and help to heal the weak!" We sang as the man from ealier came to collect me and send the others to help the other healers because worriors were coming in with deep wounds.
We got up and went our separate ways, I followed him to where Fury was standing looking out to keep this place safe from those who wish to do it harm. I cleared my throat and he looked at me only for a brief moment and he looked back at the mountains.
"Why did you leave when I needed you?" I asked walking up to him.
"Your father would've skinned me alive had he known I was giving you my mark before I was supposed to." Fury said standing tall.
"He's going to skin you alive for leaving me when I needed you the most." I said looking up at him.
"I'm sorry, I should've stayed with you and helped you through the pain like a good mate would've." He said looking at me now.
"Just, next time, stay by my side when you try to claim me." I said smiling up at him.
I hated thinking of being claimed as anyone's, but knowing that I belong to Fury made saying the word a little easier. He licked his lips and brought them down to meet mine, this was the first time I had ever kissed Fury, it was something so magical, but was cut short by someone calling for me to come and help with a wolf that had been injured just moments ago. I rushed to their aid leaving my mate alone and I would soon accept him as my mate and it would be complete. Coming into a room I saw a familiar wolf on the table, it was Ben, I fell back with my hand over my mouth, he was hurt, I was given a note and it was written in his blood, I prayed that he was still alive. SEE YOU SOON, LITTLE GIRL, was writen on the paper, now, this was personal, no one hurt my brothers, esspecially Ben, he was one of the only people I could stand to be around besides my mom. I heard a snarl come from Ben and he was breathing again, I wrapped my arms around him and when I felt something on his fur I pulled away and a powder had been put over the wound to help i heal. I left Ben to rest.
I stayed by Ben's side for weeks til he finally woke and was taken back home by escorts, he was brought here by force, Ben knew better than to leave the pack without reason, and by the size of the wound I knew that there was a struggle. That wolf would pay for injuring my brother. I had been sleeping when there was snarling outside, I got up and ran outside trailed by the other healers, it was the black wolf, he was trying to get me to come out. I walked down the steps and he walked up to me changing back to his base form, standing tall I looked up at him.
"You grew." He said with a snear.
"You injured my brother and innocent people." I said with a snarl.
He smiled and laughed at his handy work.
"You also injured me." I said with the same snarl.
"My greatest moment, injuring the alpha's only daughter, I wanted you as my mate, but he wouldn't allow it, I was a rogue since the day I was born, now you are grown and by the looks of things, you are getting ready to bond with your mate. You could have had a better life with me, but your father chose a damned General over me, I guess he didn't want his pup mated to a rogue." He said walking back out into the open and I followed, I wanted to end this once and for all.
He changed back to his secondary form and got into attack position, I changed just as others came to watch the battle. I snarled as he charged me and I jumped at him and the fight was on. I went for his throat and was going to rip it out, he went for my shoulder and sunk his teeth in, I howled in pain and clawed at his face, when he fell to the ground I saw that my fur wasn't white, but starting to turn red. I made the first move and attacked him knowing that he wasn't as strong as I was, but he was older, that was his advantage. I saw the great healers walking out of their huts and I caught a glimps of one of them holding Fury back saying that I needed to fight this battle on my own, this was a personal thing and I needed to tend to it on my own without help from him. Clawing at his face, I got a few hits, the only thing he got was the bite on my shoulder, but that was all he got, years of anger was finally coming out and I was getting the revenge I had been dying to get. He was down and when I thought it was over, he looked at me and charged me sending me to the ground with a snarl. I took a paw and clawed his eye making him howl in pain, he came at me and I got on my back legs and began clawing his back. He nipped my back leg sending me down to the ground and before I could fight back he had his jaws around my throat and I could feel his tongue licking the blood coming from my neck. I couldn't claw or bite him, he dug his teeth into my throat and started tightening his jaws around my throat, I couldn't breath, I couldn't move, but this was something that I had been dying for and now my anger was killing me. I tried to claw at his eyes again, but I couldn't even move my paw. "I'm not letting her die!" I heard Fury say as he changed and attacked the wolf killing me.
I tried to stand, but before I could rise to my feet, I was brought up by the healers and without knowing, I changed back to my base form, it was dangerous to do considering my condition. They took me to the hut and tended to my wounds, but why did Fury come and kill him? A bandage was put around my neck and shoulder, he left multiple marks on me and what that wolf said didn't make sence, why would he ask my father to make it so that I was his mate? Was he trying to make so that not even my destined mate would want me? I let out a breath as Fury walked in and took my hand in his, I wasn't about to let this man go, now I know what my mother had been talking about. My mate was the one person who made me feel whole and that one who was always there when I needed him, though Fury hadn't been there for me when all this started, he was there for me when I needed him the most. I tightened my hand around his and smiled.
"Fury," I said with a scratchy voice, "I accept you as my mate and all you are." I smiled.
He smiled and pushed my hair back, just as he pushed my hair back a wave of pain came over me, screaming, my bandages fell and my wounds healed. I held Fury's hand tighter as the pain increased.
"Don't leave me Fury, please, Gods, don't leave me again." I cried out in pain.
"I'll never leave you again." He said holding my hand tighter.
"It hurts!" I cried as my back began to arch.
"It's almost over Tamie." Fury said putting his hand on my cheek.
I screamed one final time, "Please, Gods, make this stop!" I cried as tears fell from my closed eyes.
The pain stopped. My face covered in tears worriors came in to report that they had found the rest of the rogues and put an end to them, Fury smiled and nodded and kissed my forehead. I laughed and sat up feeling dizzy, I almost fell, but I was caught by my mate, he placed his hand over my left hip and his fingers played along the mark and the fact that I had finally uttered the words that had been keeping us apart. Maybe a rough mate in the bedroom wouldn't be so bad after all. Though I might be singing a different tune later on. We returned home that night and he didn't take me home, he took me to our home, and let me rest.
I was walking with Fury along the same trail I first met him on and we were heading towards the den where we first met offcially. I didn't know why he was taking me there, maybe he thought that it would bring back some lovely memories. Though all I had to do was look at him and I would have the best memories any wolf could ask for. We walked in and there was a fire already lit and he was still leading me back further to where the drawing was. He told me to close my eyes, I did, he lit another fire and told me to open my eyes; when I opened my eyes I saw he had done more with the drawing, he had done more to my features and added to the background, there was now a full moon, a hill, and a few stars scattered all over. There was a shadow of someone standing on the hill, my guess was that the shadow was him, tears filled my eyes as he wrapped his arms around me. "I'm guessing that you like it?" He asked rocking side to side.
"I love it, but I also love you." I said turning in his arms and kissing him.
He kissed me back as he walked me to a wall and deepened the kiss, I smiled and wrapped my arms around his neck, now, this was a true way to start something. The kiss was forcefull and tender at the same time, he bit my lip and pinned me against the hard den wall. It was a mixture of pain and pleasure, but it had only begun. Fury pulled me into him and lead one of my legs up his side and the kiss was rougher than it had been, but his tender touch was the only thing keeping my mind off the pain in my back from the den wall. His lips left mine and he trailed his lips along my jaw line and down to my neck where he nipped and kissed til it was raw. I felt something against my leg, only to find that it was his muscular hands holding one of my legs up off the ground. I looked down at him from the cornor of my eye and he smiled and nipped my neck again before leaving my neck and returning to my lips, he pulled me from the wall and laid me on the floor under him. My arms were still drapped around him as his kisses turned rough and more demanding. I denied him nothing, though this would be where I leave what else happened to your imagination because it still plays through mine like a cheesy romance as my mother would put it.
Nine months had gone by and I was expecting my first child anyday now, Fury was more than excited to be bringing a new life into the world, I kept in touch with Gypsie. She had her first litter a few months ago, it was a shock to me that she had her first child before I met her, she plans to be there when I have my first child AND my first litter. I know mortals call more than one child multiples, but here they're called litters, mostly because sometimes the child comes out in their secondary form, my mother often tells me that one of my brothers came out in their secondary form, but changed back while she was holding him. But, there's something about this pregnancy that frightens me, I talked to my mom about it and she said that it was normal because all first time parents go through the same thing. Easy for her to say, she's had two litters and she's expecting her third in a few months. I'm having a single child and I'm a little frightened, but maybe child birth won't be as bad as it is with Fury when he's frisky. I was sitting with Gypsie while she was here with her mate, he often came here to tend to weapons that Vampires brought or so that Gypsie and I could talk, she was like the sister I never had. "So, how are you feeling sweetie?" She asked holding one of her children.
"I feel like I'm bout to pop." I said holding my stomach.
"Don't worry, I felt that way when I was about to birth my first child." She said laughing. I rolled my eyes as my child began to kick more than normal, than a piercing pain ran through me, I screamed as Gypsie stood and brought me to my feet. My mother was in the area when they heard me, and my father was the first one here, my mother spent a lot of her time in her secondary form with this pregnancy as well, my guess is that she is having pains again. I was taken inside as my brother was sent to get Fury, he wasn't going to miss this, mostly because he did this to me. I controled my screaming and my other brothers was standing outside the hut listening to me scream, they had all found their mates in other packs and it was a great merger, though a few of them found it in a few of the clans. I screamed louder as the child began to show, a midwife had been chosen, she was of my choice, it was June, she had become a midwife a while ago and she was my choice to help me bring my child into the world. But no remody could stop the pain the was pulsing through my body, I screamed holding onto Fury's hand, June said that I needed one good push, I took a deep breath and pushed with all my might and screamed in the process. Three hours of labor and I produced a healthy son, I smiled and took the child into my arms and held him close. Tears ran down my cheeks, I looked at the family and friends that started surrounding me, the only one I wished had been there were the Grandparents I never knew, my mother's parents were back on Earth and she told me of them often, she ventured back to Earth with my aunt when I was eight because they had past on. I knew the perfect name for my son.
"I'm going to name him, Buck, after the Grandfather I heard of but never knew. Is that ok with you mom?" I asked looking at my teary eyed mother who was trying not to cry into my father.
"It's the perfect name. My father is smiling upon his Grandson now." She said placing her hand on his head and turned to my father as tears fell from her eyes.
I smiled at all those who were here, but my next few sons would be named after the brothesr I lost, while I was away three of my brothers died from the attacks while they were coming to get me to bring me home, I had lost Kell, Red, and Jake and when I returned home they had already been put to rest, Grizz had been injured, but he survived. I remember the day I found out that they were killed, I was a mess, I cried for days and missed them so much. If only I could go back and protect them the same way they had protected me, I blame myself for what happened, but people say that they gave their lives protecting their mates, to whom now have pups of their own. I was so upset, I was so mad at a dead wolf for taking family away from me and the fact that they had died protecting those they love made dying better because it was honourable to die protecting your mate. Thinking about it brings tears to my eyes and I plan to name three of my boys after their uncles and they will not die in vein, though I'm glad that damned wolf is long dead.
Maybe my mother was right, love does come from making a family whole.
