“My turn, pretty baby.”
Elliot blinked up at Tommy, having no idea what the man was talking about but about to protest the loss of the fingers in his ass when something bigger, warmer, replaced them. Elliot inhaled sharply, not from the slight burn he felt at Tommy’s entrance, but from the pleasure bursting through his body.
Sex had never been like this before, never.
“God, Elliot, I never thought we’d get to this point,” Tommy groaned when his cock finally rested all of the way inside of Elliot. He dropped his forehead down against Elliot’s, his face looking a little flushed and desperate. “Did you?”
“No,” Elliot readily admitted. He had dreamed about it, fantasized, but he never actually thought it would happen, not with all of the interruptions they had experienced.
“It’s going to be like this for us every time, pretty baby.”
Elliot’s eyes nearly rolled back in his head when Tommy started moving his hips. The intense pressure he felt every time Tommy pulled out then pushed back in was beyond anything he had ever felt. There was just no way to describe it, so Elliot didn’t even try. He just soaked in the pleasure.
“Okay, hold on to me, Elliot.”
Elliot frowned, Tommy’s words interrupting his pleasure, but he did what the man asked and wrapped his arms around Tommy’s neck. Elliot’s breath rushed from his lungs a moment later when Tommy lifted him up and moved to the side of the bed.
Elliot’s legs instinctively wrapped around Tommy’s waist when the man stood and walked across the room. The pressure of the wall against his back sent a tingle through Elliot’s body. He’d envisioned this, had begged for it, and it was wonderful.
Tommy pressed him tightly against the wall and began thrusting into him. Each snap of Tommy’s hips sent Elliot’s desire higher and higher. Elliot dug his fingers into Tommy’s neck as the pressure inside of him built. His legs tightened around Tommy’s waist.
Elliot cried out and arched against Tommy when the feelings building up inside of him erupted and he came all over the both of them. He tried to catch his breath, but Tommy was moving again, taking them back to the bed.
“Mate, pretty baby, call me mate.”
Elliot tried to form the words to tell Tommy what he wanted to hear, but that was hard to do when his brains were melting out of his ears. Elliot felt like his entire body was melting, one hard thrust at a time.
Tommy looped his arms under Elliot’s legs and pulled them up to his chest. What started after that was what Elliot could only consider overwhelming. Tommy pounded into him, his thick cock filling Elliot’s ass over and over again.
The muscles were pulled tight around Tommy’s clenched jaw. His face looked strained. Elliot would have been worried if he hadn’t seen the way Tommy’s dark silver eyes shined in the soft bedroom light.
Tommy’s grip on Elliot’s legs was becoming tighter. His breathing was heavier. And the swift thrust of his hips was starting to become chaotic. Elliot could feel a slight swelling in the cock ramming into his ass. He knew Tommy was close.
“Mate,” Elliot whispered. He had just enough time to see his mate’s eyes widen as he leaned in and sank his teeth into the soft flesh of Tommy’s chest, right over the man’s heart. Hot, sweet blood filled Elliot’s mouth, making his groan of ecstasy join Tommy’s as both men found their release together.
Elliot could feel Tommy’s body shaking as it fell against him. He extracted his teeth and licked the small bite mark closed then buried his neck in Tommy’s shoulder as he wrapped his arms around the man.
“Mine now,” Elliot whispered. He suddenly understood the connection that mates had. He got it. And that filled Elliot with different parts of joy and fear. He didn’t know if he could ever live without Tommy now that he had the man. It might destroy him.
“I was supposed to do that.” Tommy chuckled. He had a mischievous glint in his eyes when he leaned back to look down at Elliot. “I was supposed to claim you.”
“So, claim me already.” Elliot tilted his head to one side, anticipating Tommy’s bite. His eyes drifted closed and a small shiver worked its way through Elliot’s body as Tommy’s canines scraped along his collarbone.
Elliot’s cock jerked and throbbed and tried to come back to life as Tommy’s sharp teeth sank into the flesh between his shoulder and neck. His hips unconsciously humped into the air. Elliot groaned loudly when he felt Tommy’s semi hard cock move inside of him as the man thrust forward a little.
Tommy froze. Surely he hadn’t heard what he had just heard. He pulled his teeth from Elliot’s throat. He licked away the drops spilling out before they could trail down Elliot’s throat, groaning at the intense taste of his mate.
Lifting his head, Tommy stared intently down at Elliot.
he whispered in his head, mentally crossing his fingers and praying harder than he ever had before.
Elliot didn’t even open his eyes, just smiled. “Yes?” he asked out loud.
“You can hear me?”
This time Elliot’s eyes did open and he stared up at Tommy with a confused frown on his face. “Of course I can hear you. You’re talking to me.”
Tommy’s heart thundered in his chest as he spoke silently again.
“I’m not talking to you with my mouth.”
Elliot’s eyes widened then fell down until Tommy knew his mate was looking at his lips.
“Watch my lips, pretty baby. I’m talking to you but my lips are not moving.”
Elliot swallowed hard and his eyes moved back up to meet Tommy’s. “How—”
“I don’t know, Elliot.”
Tommy grinned as he realized the gift they had been given. “
But I think it’s pretty damn cool.”
“Can you hear me too?”
Tommy nodded. “I can hear every damn thing you say.”
“Can you read my mind?”
Tommy thought about it for a moment then shook his head. “No,” he said out loud, “I can only hear what you say to me. I can’t hear a thing going on in your head.”
Tommy was a little confused and put off by the deep, relieved, sigh that came out of Elliot’s mouth. He started to open his mouth to say something, and most likely get himself in trouble, when Elliot smiled and placed a finger over his lips.
“No one wants all of their thoughts readable, Tommy, not even me. That doesn’t mean they are bad, just that they are private.”
Tommy frowned. He didn’t like the idea of Elliot trying to hide anything from him, but he supposed the man might be right. No one wanted every thought they had open for the whole world, or even a lover. Still, he needed to ask.
“So, why must you have private thoughts?” Tommy asked. “We’re mates, we should share everything.”
“I should really tell you everything I think? Because, believe me, if you think I talked before…” Elliot’s cocked eyebrow amused Tommy so much he couldn’t help but laugh.
“Okay, okay, I get it, you feel there are things you need to keep to yourself, but I don’t have to like it. I’d prefer that you share everything with me, but I understand there may be some things you don’t want to.”
“Tommy, it’s not that I don’t want to share things with you.” Elliot chuckled and shook his head. “But there are things I need to process in my own way. If you were to try and follow my thought process, your head would explode.”
Tommy burst out laughing at Elliot’s rationalization. He leaned down and kissed the tip of Elliot’s nose. “Okay, pretty baby, you keep your private thoughts private. Just don’t stop talking to me this way, okay? It’s pretty special. I don’t know of many people that can talk to each other in their heads.”
“Really? It’s not normal for mates?”
“No.” Tommy frowned. “What would make you think that?”
“I don’t know.” Elliot shrugged. “Nate and Joe, and even your parents, seem so close. I just thought it was kind of normal for you all.”
“You all? Elliot, you’re one of us.” Elliot started to shake his head so Tommy grabbed him, holding it still and looking deep into his mate’s eyes. “Elliot, you’re a shifter just like I am. I don’t know how and I don’t know why, but I am thankful for it. I would have taken you any way I could have gotten you, pretty baby, but this way, there is so much more I can share with you.”
“Li-like what?” Elliot asked in a broken whisper.
“We can run together for one. The full moon is a special time for us and now I can share that with you. For two, I think the bond between us is stronger what with both of us being wolves. Your wolf recognizes mine as its mate. Remember the scent when you sniffed my neck?”
Elliot nodded, looking wide eyed and stunned.
“Do you think it would have affected you the way it did if you hadn’t been a wolf?”
“Do you really think our bond is stronger because I’m a… I’m a…”
“It’s okay, Elliot, you can say it. You’re a wolf shifter just like me.”
Elliot’s expressive face changed and became almost somber. “But how? I’ve never shifted before. I’ve never done anything wolf-like before. Wouldn’t I have shown some sign of being a shifter?”
“Maybe you have and just don’t know it,” Tommy said. “You did say you were sick growing up, right? Maybe it was your wolf trying to get out and something was preventing it.”
“Yeah, maybe but—” Elliot’s eyes suddenly widened as he inhaled deeply and grabbed at Tommy’s shoulders. “Tommy, what if my father is a shifter like I am? Won’t that make a difference?”
Tommy wished more than almost anything on earth that he could tell Elliot it would, but he hadn’t lied to the man yet, and he wasn’t about to start now. He shook his head sadly. “No, Elliot, I don’t think it will. If your father was a shifter, he wouldn’t make himself so well known in public. We try to keep ourselves secret, not broadcast it to the world.”
“Then my mother was a shifter?”
“That would be my bet. What do you remember about her?”
“Not much, really, I—” Tommy was caught off guard when Elliot suddenly stopped talking, wrinkled his nose and wiggled a little. “Can we get cleaned up before we talk about this? It’s kind of hard to concentrate with the smell of sex in the air.”
Tommy chuckled and gently pulled away from Elliot, rolling to the side of the bed. He reached back and held out his hand. “Let’s shower real quick, and then we can get dressed and talk. I think we could both use some food in our systems.”
“Oh god, a shower sounds wonderful,” Elliot said as he eagerly took Tommy’s hand and climbed from the bed. “I feel like I have a week’s worth of grunge on my skin.”
“I don’t know. I’d say your skin is just about perfect.” Tommy trailed a finger down Elliot’s chest, grinning when Elliot shivered. “In fact, I think I have said that.”
Elliot rolled his eyes. “I’m going to be spending a lot of time in your bed, aren’t I?”
“Do you have a problem with that?”
“No.” Elliot snickered as he walked toward the bathroom. “I was just asking.”
“Mates have a need to be together, and often, Elliot, especially in the beginning of their mating.” Tommy felt hesitant. He didn’t know how much to tell Elliot about the bond they had. “Is that something that is going to be a problem for you?”
Elliot glanced back over his shoulder looking surprise. “No, should it?”
“I just wanted to make sure. I never want to force anything on you, Elliot. This has to be your choice.”
Elliot smiled and reached back to pat Tommy’s cheek. “It is, lover.”
Tommy couldn’t keep the grin off his face as he followed Elliot into the shower. No matter how confusing things might be at the moment, Elliot seemed to be accepting their mating with an open mind.
Tommy could only hope that Elliot would also accept it with an open heart. He had every intention of theirs being a love match. Tommy was already obsessed with the gorgeous man, and that happened before they even became mated. He could only imagine how much that obsession would grow in the years to come.

“I’d really prefer to just stay here, Tommy.”
Tommy sighed as he buttoned up his jeans then glanced over to where Elliot was sitting on the edge of the bed. “I know, Elliot, but you’re going to have to face my family at some point. Why not just get it over with? I promise you that things have changed.”
“What if they try to lock me up again or—”
Tommy stepped over and squatted down in front of Elliot, holding the man’s face between his hands. “Elliot, it’s not going to happen. I won’t let it. If things go bad, we’ll just leave, but I don’t think they will. A lot has happened while you were in wolf form.”
“I remember what they were like.” Elliot snorted as he pulled away from Tommy. “Not that much could have changed.”
“I swear to you, Elliot, things are different now. My family will accept you. Please, just come downstairs with me and see.”
Elliot’s lower lip caught between his teeth. Tommy held his breath as he waited for Elliot to decide what he wanted to do. While he really wanted Elliot to come downstairs and see how much things had changed with his family, he would do whatever his mate wanted.
