MASON'S POV

I groan quietly as I first wake up. I feel warm and cozy, and I honestly could just lay like this for the whole day, but, today, I am meeting my mates family, his whole family, as in his nine sibling, aunts, uncles, the whole bowl.

I lay there for another few minutes before I feel Charles starting to shift behind me. He groans much like I did before sitting up. He jumps slightly when he notices that I am awake and staring at him. He puts a hand on his head and takes an exaggerated breath.

"Gosh, Mason, you scared me." He wailed desperately. I could hear his sarcastic tone, but I could also hear the truth in his voice. I really did scare him, he's just to manly to be scared by little ole me.

"I'm sorry." I say softly although we both know he was joking, not, but he only smiles at me before collapsing on me and hugging me to his hard, but soft body. I don't know how he does it, having thick muscles on his arms, but also being soft enough so I don't get a headache when I sleep on his chest.

"Are you ready for today?" Charles whispers softly into my ear. I know he is trying to make sure I am okay, but I know that he is also nervous that I won't want to meet them.

"Of course." I answer affronted that he would even ask, even though I wasn't affronted at all. It was a reasonable question. From what little he has told me that has happened to the pack in the past months. If I was him I would have run with my tail between my legs weeks ago.

"Good, I don't want them to intimidate you. They aren't that bad, they just are, you know, little siblings. They are going to try and embarrass me in front of my mate." He said as he absentmindedly rubbed his hand soothingly down my back. I could feel my wolf purring in my head from the affection. Even the smallest of things Charles does to me make me want to be with him more and more.

"I know. Little siblings can be the worse." I tell him honestly. Charles looks at me questioningly before opening his mouth.

"Mason? Did you have any siblings?" He ask as he sits us up and slides me into his lap. He continues to rub my back as he stares at my sadly.

"Yeah, I had twin brothers. They were three when I left, and a sister, she was only a few months old." I whisper as I look down at my lap. There has not been a day that has gone by that I haven't thought about my siblings. I question everyday if I should have stayed, took care of them, even bring them with me. I have questioned all of these possibilities, and I know that I will never know if it was the right decision or not.

"I'm sorry, baby, it must have been hard to leave them." He whispers against my forehead before leaving a lingering kiss in the center of my forehead. I smile at the sparks traveling around my body before connecting my eyes with his.

"I am already feeling better then I did yesterday just being here with you. You are changing me." I tell him as I stare into his eyes. I could see the joy in his eyes by my honestly, but beneath his joy, I could still see the lingering pain.

We are alike like that. We are happy with eachother, but the fact that people have screwed us over in life brings us down, it makes us sad, angry. We want to be happy, but all of the things that have been thrown on our shoulders have made us tired, weary, of the world. It has made us want to end everything, to just float in the world and let everything pass us by, just so we can be happy.

But I know, if we stay together, we can finally find that happiness.
