He sighed loudly, and still holding me tightly, sat up. "Why did you run?" He demanded. His voice was hoarse and I could see pain in his eyes.
My wolf was killing me inside. She wanted to make Declan feel better, in any way she could. I, however, was thinking the exact opposite.
"Because I don't want this. Not right now." I told him honestly. His eyes grew darker.
"You are never leaving my side again. Not until I know you won't run." He told me. "And I will make sure of it." Then he leaned down and started kissing my neck.
I froze when I felt his teeth start to graze the spot my mark would eventually be.
"Wait.... Declan!" I choked out, then I felt his teeth sink into my neck, claiming me as his.
Declan had started the mating process.
