Tanner led me inside and immediately took me into his arms, "Shh baby, dont cry for his evil and hatred Jess. It's of his own making, I can't even bring ,myself to pity him as I should." Tanner spoke and rubbed my back. Drying my tears knwoing he was right I looked up at Tanner and for the first time taking a deep breath I spoke. "How do we stop this?" I asked him.
Tanner looked down at me with a none to happy expression on his face as if he was considering my words. "Explain Jess." was all he said and I knew my next words would upset him more. "I want this over Tanner, how do we bring them out and make it stop?" I asked in all seriousness. Tanner shook his head before walking away from me as he ran a hand through his hair. "Baby, you dont understand, I cant do this with you, if I lose you it will surely kill me." He said as if tired and exasperated.
"I cant live like this anymore Tanner, our whole mating has been based on fear and caution. I wont raise babies like this." Tanner silently nodded his head and began to pace, "Ok, Jess. I understand, so what do we suggest we do?"
I knew what I was going to say was going to make him furious so i took a deep breath and just blurted it out. " I want to assemble enough wolves to take who ever this is down and then use myself as bait to lure them out."
"HELL NO!" He growled so loud my ears hurt and a few of the wolves in the house came running to see what had their Alpha so worked up. Ignoring our now audience I shook my head and tried to reason with him. "tanner this is the only way to stop this! How else do you think we can get them?" I asked desperate to brinh him around to my way to thinking.
"I DONT KNOW BUT IT WILL NOT BE BY SACRIFICING YOU!" He continued to thunder.
I sighed a deep breath and turned away, rubing my forehead from the now massive headache i had gotten from fighting with him when all i wanted to do is solve the issue.
"If you don't do this Tanner, I will do it myself and force it you." I warned now angry as I stormed upstairs. "Jess! Jess!" I heard him holler behind me but I ignored him and continued on my path to our room as I walked through the door making sure to slam it. Setting a finalility to my words.
Growling as loud as my wolf would allow I took out everyghing on the kitchen table in one foul swoop. The sound of dishes breaking was no satisfaction.
"STUBBORN WOMAN WON'T BE HAPPY UNTIL THEY KILL HER AND ME ALONG SIDE HER!" I shouted outraged as I flipped the living room chair over to crash through the glass coffe table.
"I WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE THEM ALL ON AND SHE KNOWS THIS...I CAN READ HER THOUGHTS SHE FORGETS AND JUST THE IDEA OF LEAVING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO THAT FOUL TRASH WITHOUT A SOUL TO PROTECT HER DRIVES ME INSANE!!!" I bellowed the last part at the ceiling my head stretched back to allow the bellow to come from what felt like my toes.
Knowing I was close to changing but far beyond reason as i saw her thoughts i ignored the wolves cowering behind me and ran for the stairs and her.
I saw her standing in front of the window serenly looking out over our pack lands. Somehow that enraged me more. Funny thing is as a wolf when my mate enrages me, it also brings out my need to dominate. Go figure!
Walking over behind her I didnt need her scent of determination to tell me I was going to have fun with this one, I felt it and her. With a growl of warning I picked her up and carried her over to the bed. Once there I sprawled over her and attacked her mouth with my own, growling into her mouth as I literally ripped her clothes from her body.
"You will not do the things running through your head Jess." I growled out as I ran my mouth down her neck and sucked strongly on my mark. Knowing it was the one spot that effected us both the most.
I heard her whimper as i felt her determination to win this battle. "I will resolve this for us as you have asked of me but it will not be like this." I demanded before I attacked her bared breast determined that she would be the one to give on this one.
It was growing harder not to bend to his will when my wolf was silent begging me to do so. I loved this man more than life itself and I knew what he wanted, for me to submit. I wanted to, oh how badly I wanted to give up and let him take care of this his way but I wanted it over and I refused to let someone else be the bait for me and risk them. It had to be me, there was no other way.
