Happy Tuesday, folks. From the minute I saw this picture, it spoke to me. It sent shivers down my spine, and I knew this deserved a tease. It will be a full story, in fact. Just as soon as I've finished my current WIP. Enjoy, I hope. :-)
The hunt was on. Adrenaline coursed through his veins, urged him to run faster, their target for the evening just ahead.
She was clever, the little wolf chosen for this full moon’s activities. Knowing that she couldn’t outrun them, she’d chosen to hide, but she hadn’t counted on his beta’s need to find her. Collins had asked permission for the mating to take place earlier today, and Raphael had gladly given it. The pack needed fresh blood, and it had been a while since cubs had arrived.
For this reason, he hung back, as Collins streaked past him, the scent of his soon to be mate in his nostrils. At Raphael’s signal the pack disbursed. Restless he decided to wander. It wouldn’t hurt to check out their territory lines. The rival pack was also hunting if their excited yowls were any indication, but they didn’t hunt for sport and their prey… no, it couldn’t be. How dare they?
Hackles raised, Raphael went on the attack when the terrified and bloodied human broke through the underbrush.
Man and wolf acted as one to defend her at once when her scent wrapped around them.
No one was going to touch their mate.
