I awoke to the sun shinning brightly into my eyes from a window. I groaned and rolled over. I jumped back with a start when I saw Ian. He was sitting in a chair next to my bed his head resting on his arm. He had his hand out stretched towards me. I sucked in a breath as I looked around some more. I was in my room. I'm finally home. 

Letting out a breath I relaxed against into my pillow. Looking back over at Ian I saw that his eyes were now open. They were large and green. 

"You're awake." He said reaching out and cupped my cheek. 

"How did I get here? We were miles and miles away from the pack. 

"I carried you back to the cars and we drove through the night. We had a few issues with the dark pack. They tracked us for a while. They didn't seem to be too keen on letting you go. Any reason in particular for that?" 

"Long story."

"Well we have time so start talking." 

"Well I was running the border and I was on my way back towards the pack house when I sent-ting them. I called for you and ran. They surrounded me and that's when it got wired." I said. 

"What do you mean it got wired?" Ian asked raising an eyebrow. 

"I found my mate. Azreal is my mate. But I don't want him to be. I don't want him." I said with a pleading tone. 

Ian's eyes bulged and he stood up the chair falling back. He let out a growl and started pacing up and down his hands clenched into fists. 

"He is not your mate. You are mine. You have always been mine. I will kill him. How dare he think he has any claim to what is mine. " He said snarling. 

My mind was spinning. I knew he would be upset about Azreal but he had never talked about me like that before. Never called me his or made any move towards me. I thought back to Azreals last few words to me and I shivered. 

"There is more. Azreal left on a mission but before he did he told me that when he got back I would mate with him whether I wanted to or not. He said that if I didn't he would kill everyone I care about starting with you." I said looking down. 

Ian was before me in a moment. I was no sitting on the end of the bed and he was kneeling before me. He reached up and cupped my face in between his. 

"I will never let anything happen to you. He will never get near you again. You are mine. You always have been. Ever sense we were little you have been the one for me and I have always known. We are going to be together for the rest of our lives. You are my true mate your not his and never will be."  

He leaned in closer to me and pressed his soft lips against mine. I closed my eyes and wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him closer to me. He reached up and pulled me down to him. I broke away from him. 

"I missed you so much." I said reaching out and wrapping my arms around him. He pulled me into his lap and I curled into his chest. He pulled his arms around me and pulled me into him.

"I'm never letting you go again. Your mine." he whispered into my ear and kissed me on my forehead.
