**Mate, must help our mate** I heard the female voice in my head again, but this time I knew it was my wolf. That's when I felt it, the mate bond pulling at me, drawing me to my mate. I listened within myself and soon felt his heartbeat, but it was slowing down. It's too slow, our mate is dying! My eyes popped open and I jumped up looking for a way out of the room. I spotted an open window and quickly ran for it. I heard the men in the room shouting at me to stop as I jumped out, but I never slowed down!
