I did this for the best, and my brother will so realize it, soon he'll get bored with him. Right?

After all, he is a male, and a werewolf, we need a female of our kind to have kits with, we need to give this pride a future alpha. I knew that this is what we needed, so why did I want a certain green-eyed boy so badly. Maybe it was because I saw them together, I had been drawn to them by my tiger. Without thinking, I had walked into my brother's room and peered into the bathroom, watching as they moved against each other. The water sloshing around them as they pleasured each other, I couldn't tear my eyes away from them.

My cock had hardened but I refused to give in, that would be wrong, I'm a man, and I shouldn't be aroused by other men. I had almost run out of the room after that, but now I was questioning my decision.

Should I have rejected him?

Even if I did, would he take me back?

What would I say in the first place?

My head hurt with all the questions that were piling up with no answer. That was, until my father barged in, fury practically surrounding him.

"WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING? WERE YOU EVEN THINKING AT ALL?" he yelled, causing me to shoot up on my bed.

"What are you talking about?" I asked in a tired and frustrated voice, although I already knew the answer to that question. But I was quickly taken aback when a hard blow assaulted the left side of my face, causing me to tumble to the floor.

"WHAT DO YOU THINK IM TALKING ABOUT. HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO YOUR OWN MATE" he took a deep calming breath before he spoke again "That was your mate, was. You should have accepted them no matter what sex or species they are, cause that is the only mate that you're getting. But not only did you reject him, but you had the audacity to lock your mate up" and without another word, he left my room.

Only then, when I was laying on the floor, my cheek throbbing from the harsh blow, did the reality of what I did sink in. I hurt my mate, no I hurt our mate, he was my brother and I's shared mate. Yet I hurt him, I had to apologize, beg for forgiveness, and I wouldn't stop until they at least considered taking me back.

With that thought in mind, I strode to his room with determination in every one of my footsteps. I knocked on the door but got no reply, and instantly, dread filled me. I opened the door slightly, revealing an empty room, but what got me was that the bed was made. Leo never made his bed, never.

I fell to my knees as I realized the most obvious fact, they left, and for the first time since I was little, I cried. Tears fell down my cheeks as I tried to grasp the fact that I had no chance of getting to them now, my mates, they were gone. But instead of crying, I stood up with renewed determination and practically ran to my father's office.

"I don't know where they went, but they left early this morning. Your brother wanted me to keep you from interfering," he stated just as I walked into the room. And his words broke me, I wanted to break down like a little kid, but this was my fault, I brought this upon myself. Without a moment to spare, I walked back to my brother's room, taking in his scent that I have secretly always loved. 

Then another intoxicating scent filled my nose, it led me to the hamper, where a pair of my brother's old sweats lay, their scents were mixed on the fabric. I took it, and brought it to my nose, inhaling the most calming, yet the most arousing mix of scents I've ever smelled. My length throbbed to life, and I thought back to what I saw when they were in the bath together, but instead, I imagined me in there with them, pleasuring both of them.

My tiger jumped at the thought before forcing me into action, I was going to find my mates, no matter how long it would take.
