The warm water cascaded down her bare body as she stood still under the shower. She couldn't get the combat she had with Fryer this evening out of her mind. For some reason, she liked it when their skin touched, when she touched his bare torso. She remembered the feeling of his breath on her face and the shiver it sent down her spine.
She immediately shook her head and turned off the shower shutting down the thoughts she was having. She picked up the towel and wrapped around her self. While drying her hair with the towel she again stopped when she remembered the blush on his face. It was a lie when she said she was looking at his body to just find his weakness. She was indeed mesmerized by it and this was scaring her. The attraction she was feeling towards him was scaring her.
She wrapped the towel around her hair as well and left the bathroom to pick her clothes from the wardrobe that she had forgotten to take before. She stopped mid-step when she saw Fryer lying on her book looking through the book she was reading these days.
"I didn't take you as someone who liked reading," Fryer said and looked up only to have the smile slowly fade away from his face.
Elena cursed and went back in the bathroom locking the door after her. She watched her reflection on the mirror and cursed yet again. The towel barely covered anything. revealing even the tattoo she had below her hip.
"I'll be in the kitchen," Fryer yelled from outside.
Elena opened the door and secretly peeked through the door and after making sure he was not in the room, she ran out and locked the door of the room. Swiftly changing into a pair of jeans and a plain shirt, not giving a care about her wet hair and bare face, she left the room and went into the kitchen with the towel in her hand. Fryer looked at her appearance and immediately looked away with a chuckle.
"You could have taken your time," He said.
"What did you came here for?" Elena snapped as she again wrapped the towel around her hair.
Fryer turned back and smiled at her appearance thinking she looked too cute at the moment. "I asked to learn more about what you taught me this morning."
Elena looked at him questioningly.
"Teach me about the weak points," She interpreted his words making her nod in realization.
What will I get in return?" She teased him.
"Me all to yourself for hours," Fryer said teased her back except he didn't expect the reaction she actually gave him. Instead of a mischievous glint or a laugh full of amusement, she blushed.
"Um... let me get some papers before we start," She immediately said and left the room.
Fryer has been staring at Elena for the past ten minutes. He didn't realize she had fallen asleep as he was too focused on the drawings she had made for him and when he did, he couldn't take his eyes off her. She looked soo carefree at the moment as if she didn't have any worry about life.
He had learned quite fast how humans—although she was not fully a human—needed sleep seeing how every night during their lessons, she would fall asleep. She was resting much anyway with her time spent with helping the pack members train at day and helping Fryer lead in making strategy in the underground at night. It made Fryer realized how much of a strong person she was and just how great she was at leading. The pack slowly had started to trust her and were unknowingly depending on her. It was as if—as if she was their luna.
Fryer caressed her cheek softly, feeling her warmth under his skin.
"Their luna!" He whispered. He slowly traced his fingers on her neck to the point which Elena called a soft point, the same point where a mate mark is engraved. Elena shivered under his touch. "My luna!"
He wouldn't deny the sparks he has been feeling these days whenever their skin touched or the fact that his heart raced whenever she smiled at him. He knew he has fallen in love with this girl. He never expected to fall for someone who wasn't his mate yet here she was making him all giddy about her.
Fryer shook his head and got up picking Elena in his arms just like he has been doing for the past few days. After putting her in her bed and making sure she was comfortable, he left the house.
