Summer's Alpha(10)

By: K.S. Martin

“I want you both to come out and meet the pack. There is a house for you to move into immediately once the pack has voted. I’m sure that it will be unanimous. I’m no leader and we are all anxious to get alphas into place. The first thing that we will ask is that you get new young members here especially mated pairs and females. We want the pack repopulated quickly.” Jackson nodded and shook Larry’s hand then saw him out. They were on the back porch for a few minutes. I was in the bedroom when he returned.

“That went well.” He said and I nodded. “We are going to get this Summer.”

“What did you mean that we would mate if it was required?” He grinned wolfishly.

“That you and I would mate if their pack insisted.” I chewed on my bottom lip.

“That’s as bad as what my dad was going to do.” Jackson is shaking his head. “It is so. I want to fall in love with my mate.”

“You already love your mate.” He pointed at himself. “I’ve always been yours Summer. You know that.” I’m shaking my head. “I know that you think about it, I can smell you thinking about it.” My cheeks flush crimson.

“Sure I think about it, about sex. Who doesn’t ? But that doesn’t mean I’m thinking about it with you.” I tell him without looking at him. He’ll see the lie on my face. He’s been a walking lie detector lately. I think it’s his alpha genes kicking into overdrive.

“Uh huh.” Jackson crosses his arms over his chest. “So last night while you slept, while you were calling my name and humping me, you were thinking of another Jackson? Not me? And when you climaxed and told me that you loved me, it wasn’t me that you were thinking of?” Damn it. I knew that was going to happen. Those damn dreams were a curse no matter how much I enjoy them sometimes. “You felt so good against me, moaning, and writhing. I wanted to bury myself inside of you Summer.” Gooseflesh chased over my skin and heat crept up my neck flaming my cheeks. He’s on his knees at my feet with his hands on my thighs now. I can feel the heat of them through my jeans. His irises are deep steady amber, that’s desire. I hadn’t seen it before, but I knew it now. I wondered if my eyes were similar. “I came here because I missed you. I came here because as soon as you went missing, I felt like I had a hole in my heart. I realized the second you were gone how much you meant to me. I knew before that I loved you but when you weren’t there anymore, I realized that I love you.” I gave him a confused glance. “That I wanted to mate with you and that I can’t live without you.”

“I’m calling bullshit. You have never felt that way about me. I can see why you want this job Jackson but you don’t have to mate me to get it.” I get up and go to the window seat. I pull my knees to my chest and stare outside.

“You think that I don’t want you?” He’s angry. I shake my head. “You think that I’m faking this because I want an alpha position?” I nod but I can’t look at him because he will see the tears in my eyes. Sure, we could mate and probably be happy for the rest of our lives but it would always bother me. It would bother me to find out if he wanted the job or me. Before today, Jackson has never had a romantic notion toward me. He has never told me that I’m pretty or that he likes me in that way. I want him to feel that way but I know that he doesn’t. “Summer I’ve wanted you for as long as I can remember but it wasn’t like that. We were friends and I didn’t want to destroy that relationship by rushing you into something that you weren’t ready to have. Lately though, I’ve realized that you want me too.”

“It was just a dream Jackson, it didn’t mean anything.” I say quietly.

“Don’t lie to me.” He snarls. “Don’t lie.” Jackson pulls me from the window seat and throws me over his shoulder. We are going to the bedroom. He’s going to rape me. I have not consented to this. I bite my lip with worry. I can’t fight him off because he is too strong. If he wants to claim me as his mate there is nothing that I can do about it. I’ll never find the mate that I was supposed to have if he does this.

“Jackson, please?” I beg quietly. He puts me down on the edge of the bed and drops to his knees in front of me.

“You want me Summer, don’t lie, be honest. Do you want me? Do you want me to make love to you? Was it only a dream or was it your mind engaging in a fantasy that you don’t think you can really have? I want you to look me in the eyes and tell me the truth about how you feel. If you can tell me that, we are only friends, fine. However, if you want me, say so. Don’t tell me what you think I want to hear or what you think you believe is true.” Jackson’s eyes were focused and intent on mine. Shit. When he does that penetrating alpha stare, I am compelled to do whatever he wants. I want to please him. I want him so much but even more so, I want him to want me.
