The Late Mate (Completed & Needs Editing)
There are three steps with mating.
First, is the recognition step; at a Werewolf's sixteenth year of life, their body finds their mate.
Second, is the marking step; when one in their eighteenth year can now bite their mate, marking them as theirs.
Lastly, is the consummating step; when they complete their mating process whenever one wishes.
Violet Mannerly completely missed these steps. Fate always seemed to bring one's mate into their lives their sixteenth year, for the recognition step. Whether they magically seemed to be pulled into a random location or event for no reason, it happened. For Violet, her sixteenth year was lonely and mateless. As the next step passed and her mate still didn't show up, she accepted she might possibly be a Solus-an unmated and unwanted wolf.
Violet doesn't dwell on not having a mate as a year passes by after her eighteenth birthday she is dating a human, Joel Greene, even though it is frowned upon. With a bordering pack making threats, Violet's pack must call for help. Which brings in seven wolves, one being Ryker Van Allen.
What happens when the mate you've been waiting four years for shows up late?
