Yes Ma'am, Alpha, Ma'am

***NOT a Bitten fanfiction; most of the characters are the same, but, and I repeat, this is NOT a fanfiction, of Bitten or otherwise....***
24 year old Dawson Cole comes home from the war to find his childhood sweetheart, his little Josie, all grown up and the Alpha female of their Pack after her parents are killed right in front of her; he might not know the pain of losing his own parents, but he does know about the horrors of war, and all he wants to do is hold her close and never let her go again. Except, now, she's cold and distant towards him- harder, somehow. Losing her parents hardened her, made her rather unforgiving, and still, Dawson will stop at nothing to have his Little Dove back.
Josephine "Josie" Dunn has seen things no 22 year old woman should have to, and she's done even worse; but when your parents are killed right in front you, and all you can think of is revenge, of course you do what you have to! That includes hardening your heart and keeping away the one person who actually has hope to fix you- or, in Josie's case, her old flame Dawson Cole. She soon realizes that he is her Mate, and she his obviously, but refuses to accept him; she doesn't reject him, per se, but she doesn't accept him, either. Mates are a weakness, a distraction, and she's still got a long list of names of people's asses who need kicked for taking her parents away and ruining her life. She misses Dawson, sure, but she's the Alpha now, and has to do what is best for her Pack.
And all Dawson can say is "Yes Ma'am, Alpha, Ma'am!"
