I felt like someone had thrown a bucket of ice water over my whole body when I was having a high fever.

Flesh stinging and mind spinning from the turn of events had me reeling back from him very fast.

Then I remembered that I was supposed to grab the shirt and back off!

What happened to that self control?

I was pissed at myself and my wolf now at the moment for our lack of control.

And the fog of lust was trying to cover my clarity again. I'll be damned if I let it win.

Before I could drown in the sensations again, I pulled back, fingers painstakingly removing itself from his hair, back arching to get away. The more I tried to move back, the closer he followed.

His hot lips pressed against my mouth again, following my lips as I turned my head and tried to peel his hands off of my butt with no success.

As if noticing my refusal, his canines nipped against my jaw causing me to gasp out in shock, pain and pleasure swirling in a mix of colors before my vision.

My arms had soon wrapped around his neck again, offering my neck to him when I was pulled back into the foggy haze of pleasure that just his touch could bring.

I was berating myself mentally to pull away but my body seemed to have a mind of its own, wrapping around Jaydon like a snake while letting him kiss up on me.

Things weren't supposed to happen this quick.

Slightly shaken, I managed to put all of my strength into my legs, springing upwards and landing to the side when my fingers closed around the shirt hanging slightly off of the bed.

In smooth and rapid motions, I dragged the shirt on down my body and let the towel drop unceremoniously onto the ground. He made a move to grab me before I leapt almost 5 feet away from him to insure that he wouldn't be able to drag me back.

At my bodies disconnection from his, he slowly started to calm, lust laden eyes finally clearing to show the beautiful amber shade underneath.

Finally.

I breathed a deep sigh and wiped at the corner of my mouth to clean off our mixed saliva that had wet my chin, cheeks blushing pink in embarrassment at the oddly awkward atmosphere now.

Yikes.

"Sorry," he said, fingers clenching into a fist when he calmly brushed a hand over his damp hair.

"It's no problem. I think...Can we start slow? I want to get to know you before we... you know," I said shyly, biting down on my lower lip to keep from saying something stupid.

I know that I said that I really should think things carefully before jumping into this relationship but I couldn't help myself.

After the whole ordeal with Liam, I was very heart broken but I wasn't in love with him.

And I'm really glad that I didn't get the chance to love Liam before he rejected me or else what could I have done at that point?

Rip my heart out of my chest?

Just because my first mate was a bust, I truthfully hope that this time, Jaydon will be the one.

Because I deserve to be loved.

I deserve to have someone love me as much as I love them and live happily ever after instead of knowing only the tears and sorrow of rejection.

And I couldn't just throw away my future and happiness because of Liam. That asshole doesn't deserve it.

Jaydon suddenly chuckled lowly, eyes crinkling in this really sexy way when he stood and headed to the closet, grabbing himself a new shirt to cover himself.

Probably because he noticed how my eyes kept going back to staring at his abs and nipples like a pervert.

If he asks, I'm going to blame it on my wolf.

Why is it that I always get the blame for you perving on people?

You can't say that because it's not just me perving on people, it's the both of us. Don't you remember how you egged me on to stare at his goodies?

Yea. Yea. Whatever. It was worth it though.

I couldn't help the slight smile at the corner of my mouth when Jaydon finally turned back to me.

"I was thinking the same thing. Let's get to know each other first, Rose." His words were very smooth, almost like a warm gust of air over my slightly chilled skin, making my cheeks warm at the thought.

"I would like that, Jaydon," I said softly, smiling widely at him as my heart beat wildly in my chest.

I was feeling extremely giddy with excitement now, unable to hold back the smile that nearly split my face in two.

"I'll show you around the house," he said with this small smile in response to my own, showing me his really cute dimples in the process.

Damn is he hot.

I can't believe how lucky I got with this one.

Jaydon turned around and was motioning for me to follow him when he led us around, pulling me out of my thoughts.

There were two guest rooms on the second floor along with a bathroom while on the first floor was his room, a large sized kitchen, small library with a work area, and a living room that was fairly big too.

"You can stay in one of the guest rooms on the second floor if you would like," he told me as I glanced back at his room.

My smile seemingly stiffened at his words and then I remembered that I was the one who said we needed to go at a slow pace.

Why do I feel slightly regretful now?

"Are you hungry?" He asked.

I nodded pitifully, hand against my stomach when the corner of his mouth quirked bemusedly at my childish gesture.

"Let's see what we can whip up in the kitchen," he replied, leading me back into the kitchen where I immediately took a seat on the bar stool.

"Um. I don't cook. Unless you want explosive diarrhea and two bottles of pepto-bismol for it..." I confessed and then trailed off at my word vomit, feeling my cheeks heat up in a hot blush.

Damn it.

Why did I have to say diarrhea in front of him?

"You're really amusing, Rose. But you don't need to cook," he laughs out, eyes once again crinkling like he's winking at me.

"You know how to cook?" I inquired with a tip of my head to the side.

Who knew that this powerful Alpha wasn't just good at killing people?

I surely didn't but it's definitely a nice surprise.

"A little. My mother always made us help when she was in the kitchen. I picked up a little from watching her," he replied, cracking a couple eggs into a bowl when someone started banging on the front door like mad. It was as if their intentions were to break the door off of the hinge or something.

Then, Jaydon's eyes turned silver as someone mind linked him.

I sat on the stool waving my legs back and forth while waiting for him to finish his conversation, wondering if I was going to get fed now.

He dropped the whisk in his hands and had immediately headed towards the front door.

"Jaydon?" I called, noticing how he had completely forgot I was there.

"I'll be back in a little bit, Rose," he said, slightly out of breath and I couldn't help but worry that there was something wrong.

His entire body was extremely tense, lips pursed into a thin line when he opened the door and left with a tall and burly male.

And the door closed with a loud slam when I was left to myself.

What was that all about?

A/N : Yea. I know it's been two years but I'm picking this up again. When I started this story, I didn't have a plot so it was a little harder to see where I wanted to go with it but I've gotten a bit of structure figured out now :) Thank you for hanging on and waiting for me to kick my butt into gear!

I'm still editing the chapters so if you notice anything odd, please ignore it for now :D New chapters are not edited and will remain that way until I start editing from the beginning.

Thank you for not giving up on this :)
