The Bear Takes His Mate(10)

By: Emma Devine

He nodded.

“What was your other problem?”

Sabrina blushed. Now they were heading into dangerous territory. There was only one person on earth she talked to about her boy problems and that was Jess. And now here she was about to talk about them to a guy she’d met only a few minutes ago. What was wrong with her? She found it hard to resist his deep, sexy voice though.

“My other problem…”

He nodded encouragingly, urging her to go on.

She took a deep breath.

“My other problem is that I’m a virgin. I’ve never been with a man before. I’m 19 fucking years old and I’ve never had sex with a guy. I used to try all the time but now there’s just no point. I know I’m going to die alone. And I know the reason why. I’m just too goddamned curvy and shy around hot guys.”

Sabrina was startled at how much she had just revealed to this guy. He was almost a complete stranger and she had just poured her heart out to him. Something was definitely wrong with her but she had no idea what it was.

Mike had a strange look on his face though. It looked like… hunger? Desire? Sabrina almost laughed out loud at that though. There was no way someone like him would ever even dream of being with a curvy virgin like her.

“Okay, so you lost your job and you’re worried you’ll never get fucked. Is that it?”

She nodded.

“Okay. Well as to your job. It sounds like Jess is trying really hard to get her dad to pull some strings and help you out with that. So you may not have to worry about that. But worst case scenario, you don’t get your job back. Why don’t you try to volunteer at another animal shelter? Or you could just try to go back to school and find something else. I know back home, there’s plenty of job opportunities.”

Sabrina shook her head.

“No, this is what I wanted. I love animals. I want to take care of them. And I can’t just get up and move, that would cost me even more money. I have to stay here.”

That incredible smile was back on his face already.

“I have an idea. What would you say to some help? I know a guy who’d be willing to stay with you here for a few weeks until you get back on your feet. He’d pay the rent and take care of you if you wanted. If Jess is able to get you your job back, that’s great and you can kick him out whenever you want. If not, he can help you find a job around here anyway. What do you say?”

Sabrina felt light-headed.

“Who the hell would do that for me? I don’t have any guy friends. My only friend is Jess and she has to go to school. No, there’s no one that can help me unless Jess somehow manages to get her dad to pull some strings.”

Mike sat there, waiting. It suddenly dawned on her that he was talking about himself.

“You? But I don’t know you at all. Why would you want to help me like that? We literally just met a few minutes ago.”

“Look, Sabrina, I know what you’re going through. I’ve lost lots of jobs and I know that you’re in a tough spot right now. I want to help you. And I don’t just mean with your job situation either.”

Sabrina was confused.

“What are you talking about?”

He stood up and sat down right next to her. Sabrina’s heart started to race.

“I think you know what I’m talking about,” he said in that seductively deep voice, moving closer until their faces were practically touching.

“Sabrina, I think I can help with your second problem, too. You’re afraid of staying a virgin for the rest of your life? Not if I can help it.”

He leaned in and covered her mouth with his lips, just a quick taste. He gently caressed her as he kissed her again, this time with much more ferocity, exploring her mouth with his tongue. She responded as best she could, mimicking his movements as they fought for control of her mouth.

As she realized what she was doing, she broke off.

“What the fuck are you doing? You don’t want to be with me. I’m a curvy virgin you just met! You don’t know me and I don’t know you. You deserve someone beautiful and confident. Someone with experience. Not someone like me.”

He growled softly.

“I decide who I want to be with. And I think you’re one of the hottest girls I’ve ever seen. I don’t care if you’re curvy or if you’re a virgin. In fact, that’s perfect.”

Sabrina lost it all right there. She felt herself melting in his arms as he kissed her again, sending rings of electricity down their entwined bodies. He quickly pulled his shirt off, revealing his amazing body. Sabrina couldn’t take her eyes away. Perfectly cut muscles lined his torso, with a perfect six-pack and chest.
