Where Do I Belong?
It all started over a letter; a simple piece of paper with a college header that was addressed from far, faraway—a letter from some professor that would change everything. It meant that Kobe was leaving soon and there was nothing Dane could about it. Pushing the document back under Kobe’s bed without bothering to read the rest, Dane continued vacuuming their shared room with a dangerous grip on the household appliance. Not book smart in the least, Dane wasn’t even applying to college because he knew he’d just end up a Beta anyways. But Kobe? What had he expected? Kobe was everything he wasn’t, smart, good looking, and popular. He belonged at that fancy Lupe college on the west coast and a big dumb lug of a best friend couldn’t hold him back from that. Dane sighed and turned off the vacuum. His grief over his only friend in the entire world leaving him, now turning to anger.
Once the room was clean to Kobe’s mother’s specifications, Dane showered and shaved in the small adjoining bathroom before Kobe got back from helping the older males. He wanted to be gone before the pack’s little superstar got back from working with the beta’s down at the lake. They were building a fishing dock for obvious reasons as well as something for the young to jump off of in the summer. This place was more like a family resort than a compound and all the happy fluffy crap just made Dane bitter. His father had been killed in a Beta challenge when Dane was ten and after that his mother wasn’t really up for the job of handling her own child. Therefore the Alpha had taken him in and offered him a real home when his mother vanished from the compound. They knew she wasn’t coming back.
It sounded ideal but it was absolute torture to live in someone’s home as if you were their family but know that you weren’t at all. Even worse was to know that you were in love with the Alpha’s son but that you couldn’t touch the future leader of the pack because he was straight and Dane knew that being with another man would be frowned upon by the others. So he just existed among them. The big muscled, dumb asshole living in a pen of pretty smiling creatures was the story of Dane’s life.
He threw on some clean clothes and grabbed his dad’s old rucksack from under his own bed and headed out. The only thing he really owned in life was the old red truck that had been his fathers. It wasn’t much as it was rusted here and there and the seats had seen better days but it was his and when he drove it, he felt a connection to the father that he barely knew. He’d even kept the picture of his mom that was shoved in the rearview mirror. This truck was his family.
“Dane!” He heard a voice shout as he started the ignition and the truck roared to life. Glancing out the window, he cringed at the sight of the lean male running towards his car with the lightest blue eyes he’d ever seen. White blonde hair glinted in the dying sun as Kobe ran towards the truck.
“I have to be somewhere Kobe. Don’t wait up,” Dane shouted out the window and backed up to avoid any further conversation. If he stuck around, he’d just end up more pissed off and say things he didn’t want to ever admit.
“Dane, hey wait!” Kobe frowned and stopped running. What the hell was eating him lately? They were best friends but recently there was a wall up between them and Kobe couldn’t for the life of him figure out what was going on. He missed Dane terribly and ever since the big ass had decided to start ignoring him, Kobe had tried to make himself busy with helping out the Beta’s with their summer projects. Was that what Dane was upset about, that Kobe was hanging out with the older males? Well hell, Dane was stronger than any of them put together. If he wanted to hang, the guys would love it. But Kobe had a feeling that wasn’t the problem. Maybe he’d figured out how Kobe felt…
“Hey, sexy,” Lana laughed and put an arm around Kobe. Dane glanced over as he put the truck in gear to see Lana with her arms around Kobe as his best friend just stared at him blankly. Seeing that female with her hands on Kobe was more than Dane could handle and he slammed on the gas—leaving a trail of dust in his wake. Raising a brow Lana shook her head. “You two are so clueless it makes me sick. I may like girls but I still know a thing or two about boys and you’re all dumbasses.”
She flicked Kobe’s ear with her blue fingernails. “Earth to Kobe…hello?”
“Why does he do that? What did I do to him to make him that angry?” Kobe turned to Lana who pouted and sighed.
“It’s because he likes you too much that he’s angry.”
“That doesn’t make any sense. How could he like me too much? We’re practically bonded for crying out loud. He’s like my brother Lana.”
“Brother?” She snorted. “Do me a favor and don’t ever tell him that.”
“What? Why?” Kobe screwed up his brows in confusion.
“Like I said, you are so clueless.” Lana kissed Kobe’s cheek and turned around with a flip of her bright red bob. “Later pup.”
Kobe stood there and felt his stomach twisting with grief as he watched Dane’s truck become smaller and smaller down the main road—eventually disappearing into nothing.
Two nights later, Dane slipped into the bedroom as quietly as he could. One of the older males had given him enough Southern Comfort to kill a horse and he was having a hard time walking, let alone being silent about it. He walked right into the bathroom door and hissed as pain bloomed across his forehead. “Fuck,” he whispered and reached out blindly to steady himself. So much for drinking his troubles away, Dane thought. This was so much worse.
Not sure what he was doing, he spotted the bed and stripped his clothes off as best he could. Proud that he hadn’t fallen to the floor when his jeans trapped his ankles, Dane climbed into bed and wrapped his large body around the warm mound of pillows under his chest. Damn these pillows smelled good, Dane smiled and inhaled—burying his nose deep within their softness.
The next thing he knew a loud buzzer was going off and his eyes fluttered open. Light assaulted at his irises and he turned into the pillow to avoid going blind. Man his head hurt and his mouth tasted like…yeah gross. When he felt a small arm tighten around his waist and heard a groan of protest somewhere near his chest, Dane stiffened. No, no, no, he thought madly. Please no.
Dane looked down and he felt his life slip away in horror. Kobe’s face was pressed into Dane’s chest and his naked body was pressed…everywhere. Dane was already hard against Kobe’s stomach and the larger Lupe knew he had to get the hell out of here. He had to leave this place and spare Kobe any shame. If someone found out about this or his love for the Alpha’s son, Kobe’s status would most likely be ruined and he’d be an outcast. Very slowly, Dane slipped out from under Kobe’s embrace and got dressed. He packed up his rucksack with a few essentials and put the wad of cash left over from his last job at the bottom before tying it up tight. Now he stood over Kobe’s sleeping form and a tear ran down his face. Quietly, he knelt beside the bed and kissed Kobe’s cheek. “I’m sorry I have to leave you because…I want nothing more than to stay with you forever. But I love you enough to know what’s right and you’re better than me. You’ve always been better than me Kobe and maybe now…maybe now you’ll realize it. I love you Kobe. Maybe one day you’ll forgive me.”
Realizing he was crying, Dane sniffled into his jacket sleeve and wiped his face. He gave Kobe one last look before he turned and left the main house. Walking past his truck was like his feet had suddenly turned to stone. His body knew what he was doing was wrong, his wolf was screaming inside to stop this, but he had to leave here. He couldn’t sit by any more and watch Kobe become this beautiful man, this Alpha who would take a female, this man that would have young and eventually leave him behind. The idea tore Dane up inside and his wolf had to agree on that but then it started crying again.
“We have to go,” Dane whispered and looked back at the house one last time.
“And where are you off to this early?” Lana walked out of the tree line in mesh shorts and trainers, fresh from a morning run.
Dane kept his growl of fury for the female under wraps and kept his red rimmed eyes lowered. “Out.”
“If you keep running, it’ll only get worse Dane. Even I can feel your wolf about ready to snap. I know I’m not much but you can talk to me if you want.” Lana shrugged and took a step closer.
Slowly Dane turned his now yellow eyes over his shoulder. “And why would I want to talk to you? You’re nothing more than a slut that only wants Kobe because he’ll be Alpha one day.” He bared his teeth and growled. His nails grew on his fingers and tore into his backpack.
“Whoa. What? Hold up there big guy. First off I am not a slut and…”
“Enough!” Dane roared and took a step towards the female. Lana’s eyes widened and she backed up in fear.
“Holy shit,” Lana whispered and went to her knees—her head immediately falling low to him. Dane didn’t even ask what the fuck her problem was and took off. As much as it hurt to leave his truck, he knew he couldn’t drive it around with registered plates and escape being found by the pack. With a rage that scared even him, Dane took off through the woods and tears blurred his vision. His wolf guided him around the thick trees and over the fallen logs. Scents, colors, and sounds became nothing more than static to Dane as he felt his wolf’s heart breaking. They were leaving their pack, the boy they loved, and everything they knew behind.
“Kobe, wake up! C’mon son, get up!” Large hands shook Kobe out of his perfect slumber and his eyes shot open. His dad and mom were directly above him and in the doorway was a terrified looking Lana. Immediately Kobe turned to see Dane’s bed empty and his backpack was gone.
“Dane…” he whispered.
“Son, did you talk to him at all this morning? Did he say where he was going?” The Alpha looked down at Kobe with his matching light blue eyes and shot Kobe’s mom a look of concern.
“No, I haven’t talked to him in a long time dad. He’s been weird lately.” Kobe kept the sheets around his body and strained not to pull them to his nose and inhale with a stricken cry. The Alpha’s son was barely containing himself in the bed as it was—his wolf crying out in desperation. He just knew Dane was missing and Kobe and his wolf were heartbroken.
“Get dressed, so you can be up if he calls. I can feel him still in the area and his wolf his is pissed at him. The damn thing woke me up with the bond. We need to find him before he…” The Alpha shook his head and sighed before standing up.
“Before he what?” Kobe straightened up and his mom put a hand on his shoulder.
“Honey this morning when Lana tried to approach him, he barely contained himself at the mention of…” She looked to Kobe’s father for support.
“Well he should know Kelly. He hasn’t seemed to notice for the last nine years.” The Alpha threw his hands up and paced the room with a shudder of stress.
“Oh for crying out loud Kobe. Are you fucking blind?” Lana stomped into the room with wide eyes. “He isolates himself from the others because he knows he’s different, stronger, and he thinks way to damn much. Sound familiar?” She gestured to Kobe’s dad and the Alpha looked guilty as charged.
“Then there’s the fact that you two are in love with each other. Jesus how hard is that to say! I mentioned you this morning as he was leaving and he called me a slut who only wanted you for madam Alpha status. Can you believe that shit? Oh he did though. He about ripped my head off and then made me submit. I am the daughter of the head Beta, Kobe. The only person that can make me submit is…the Alpha.” Lana softened her voice as she watched Kobe absorb what he was being told. The blonde turned towards the window and searched the woods with an unholy need. He’d known it was Dane last night in his bed and he had craved the touch more than he was able to describe. Even if Dane had been drunk, Kobe couldn’t say no.
Now as he admitted his feelings to himself at their full extent, Kobe silently let the tears fall. “Why would he leave me then?”
“Because he doesn’t think he’s good enough for you. He thinks that I’ll rip him to pieces for loving you,” The Alpha said. He sat on the bed and combed his son’s hair away from his face. “But truth is Kobe, me and your mom have always known. How could we not?” His mom snorted and Kobe suddenly got antsy or rather his wolf did.
“Okay, can I have a minute to get dressed? Then I’m coming with you.” Kobe swallowed and looked his father in the eye.
“Son, you can’t come with us. If he’s transitioning and I think that’s what’s happening, then his wolf will snap and make you submit on the spot. You know what I’m sayin?” The Alpha pulled his lips tight and looked around as if embarrassed.
“So I have to submit, big deal? Now get out…please.” He rephrased. The man in front of him might be his dad but he was also his Alpha and you didn’t tell an Alpha what to do.
“What your father means honey is that Dane will make you submit not as in on your knees before your leader but as in submit to your mate. He won’t care about anything or anyone around when he does either. Do you want that?” His mother gently explained and Kobe felt his face flush hot. The thought of Dane rubbing against his naked body and those powerful jaws locked onto his shoulder made Kobe hard under the sheets. Oh God, the nights that he had gone off into the woods just to touch himself at the thought had been agonizing compared to what the real thing would be like. Now he had the chance…
Looking to Lana who was waiting patiently in the corner, he sighed and turned back to his mother. “How long until they bring him back?”
“It could be an hour or he could prove to be a little harder to bring in than we thought. A day at the most,” The Alpha replied. “Just try and relax Kobe. We’ll bring him back son. You have my word.”
Kobe nodded and let his head fall forward to hide the tears that came back. Where are you Dane?
Dane’s head was spinning and he began breathing harder and harder. His chest felt like it was going to explode as if his wolf would leap right out it. Any minute now he was going to shift and for some reason Dane knew this time was going to be different. Everything in his body ached and screamed in pain and finally he couldn’t push on. He knew he wasn’t out of pack lands yet but he was far enough away for now. Slinging his pack off his back, he tore his shirt off and howled to his knees in agony. It was like he was shifting for the first time, only worse and Dane cried it hurt so badly.
The sun was sifting through the tops of the trees—filtering in small bits of light here and there as Dane fell over and starting shaking violently. His wolf was charging in his head, growling its anger for leaving home, pissed that its mate had been abandoned. It was wanted out and it wasn’t taking no for an answer. The wolf was stronger than Dane right now and he didn’t have a choice as his body obeyed the creature’s demands. Dane screamed and his back bowed as he heard the bones shifting under his skin. His nails lengthened and hair erupted on his hands and flowed up his arms.
His pants busted at the seams as his thighs thickened with hard muscle and fur poked out of the breaking denim. With the last of his humanoid strength, Dane kicked off his boots and roared as his beast took over completely.
They’re close, the large grey wolf sniffed in the air and scented the others coming for him. He was stronger now and they would not take his mate from him. They would not separate them. The two wolves would be together whether the other’s liked it or not. He would kill them to get back to his mate. Let them come, he growled.
Like leaves blowing in on the wind, six wolves slowly crept out of the trees and surrounded the large grey wolf in the middle of the clearing. The biggest one with the glossy black coat stepped forward and growled. It was not a threat, it was a demand for obedience and the power from the older wolf made him think twice. This was his Alpha, his guardian, the man that had basically raised him. But be that as it may, no Alpha would tolerate two males as mates. It just wasn’t done. He would have to take his mate and run.
Sensing the wolf behind him getting too close, he turned around and growled, his razor sharp teeth bared and his eyes blazing with power. The smaller wolf yelped and put his head down low to the ground in submission as the grey wolf continued to show his status. All the other wolves started to back up as the grey one turned back to face the black wolf. Mine. The grey wolf thought to his Alpha who snorted and shook his muzzle.
He is mine! The grey wolf growled and the black wolf’s eyes went light blue. If you can shift back, then you are worthy of him. That was ridiculous, the grey wolf huffed. Only an Alpha could shift back and forth between human and wolf at will. Others would have to at least wait an hour before the wolf would let them change back. You know I can’t. You laugh at me?
Have you tried pup? Those blue eyes stared at him and the wolf thought about it. He looked around at the other wolves who all had their heads lowered to the ground except the black one. The grey wolf shut his eyes in thought and felt a ripple cross his body quickly. When he opened his eyes, Dane looked down at his naked body in shock. Kobe’s father had changed back too and stood there with a smile.
“This isn’t possible! I’m the son of a Beta. I’m not an Alpha,” Dane said and shook his head in disbelief. His body felt stronger though, his wolf obedient but still crying for his mate, he felt like…
“Whoever told you that was mistaken Dane, because I too am the son of a Beta. You are an Alpha Dane and I know you feel it now…” Dane thought to his mother and the way she insisted that he could never be an Alpha when he was younger. But was she really trying to keep him out of the spotlight for his own safety? Did she just not want to risk Dane being challenged and killed like her father? Is that why she left because she knew Dan would be stronger than the rest eventually? That she would have no choice?
“She knew didn’t she? My mom?” Dane felt the tears again and the Alpha nodded.
“That’s why she left you in my care Dane because she couldn’t handle seeing you in any danger. She wasn’t a bad person. The loss of a mate does things to you that you couldn’t imagine. She loved you Dane, she just didn’t love herself anymore without him.” The Alpha took a few steps forward and put a hand on Dane’s shoulder. “I love my son too Dane. And that’s why you’re going to come back home and make him happy. I don’t like seeing him like that…”
“What’s wrong? What’s happened?” Dane’s eyes narrowed and he growled.
“He misses his mate.” Those four words brought Dane to his knees and he wept at the feet of his own Alpha in gratitude.
Kobe paced the floor of the cabin’s one room and kept glancing at the door. He could feel others nearby and his hands were starting to sweat at what was about to happen. Something had shifted in the group since they had left and Kobe could almost taste the power of two full grown Alphas in the woods. Dane, Kobe salivated and tried to sit on the bed but found staying still too uncomfortable. His wolf was about out of his mind and the bond was growing stronger between him and Dane as the level of need rose. Suddenly flushed with heat, Kobe pulled his shirt off and fanned his face before pushing his hair out of his eyes. He needed to open a window before he suffocated.
That was a mistake he realized quickly as the scent of his male traveled in the air and brought him to his knees. He gripped the table that Lana had helped him wash down and accidentally tipped the vase of flowers off the surface. The vase shattered to the floor but Kobe was unconcerned with that as he writhed in his jeans. They had to come off before he soaked right through them. His wolf was on the brink of something but he didn’t know what—they were both too far gone to communicate with each other.
Unzipping his jeans with shaking hands, Kobe tried his best not rip the damn things off his body and shimmed out of them. The cool wood of the floor relieved him for a moment but then the fever took over again. His hand slipped into his briefs and found his aching cock. God what was happening, Kobe moaned. He felt the wolves leaving the area and he almost screamed for help but then he felt a force of nature coming full speed to the cabin and the scent coming through the window became much stronger.
“Oh God,” Kobe squeezed his dick and pulled his briefs below his balls to feel the breeze on his skin. So hot, he moaned. The door cracked open and Dane stood there with a growl on his lips. His short brown hair was soaked with sweat like had just shifted and his muscles gleamed with the same salty moisture—the lines of his body seemed beyond powerful. The massive Alpha took the entire length of the room in three steps and pulled his mate from the floor by the hips. With a growl and his yellow eyes locked on tearful blue ones, Dane placed Kobe on the wooden four poster bed and ripped the briefs from his body.His body covered Kobe’s burning skin and he sought out that mouth with his tongue. Kobe’s legs wrapped around Dane’s tight ass and everything else was lost. There wasn’t any fear of what they were
doing, there wasn’t some long drawn out talk. They were mates and they were going to make it official. Kissing turned to petting and soon the breathing in the room was so loud, Dane couldn’t think. His cock ached so bad, that he didn’t think twice about lifting up onto his knees and pulling Kobe by the hair to his erection. Kobe didn’t miss a beat and licked the sweat from his Alpha’s dick.
“More,” Dane growled and pushed Kobe’s mouth down onto his erection and pulled him back—showing him how he liked it. Kobe’s hands found his mate’s hips and he moaned at the pleasure between them. He lived to please the man he sucked, his body a mere extension of the bond they were creating. The air around them hummed with power and pricked at Kobe’s skin. He was in another world that only involved submitting to the man above him. Pain, pleasure, whatever he wanted, Kobe was lost in it.
Dane felt the power thrumming through him and felt the love pouring off of Kobe in waves. The smaller male was getting off on pleasuring him and that pleased his beast…a lot. He combed his fingers through Kobe’s hair and anchored them tight as he began to thrust into his mouth slowly. Kobe’s hands ran up and down Dane’s muscled thighs and up to his ass—wandering and learning Dane’s large body. Taking his mate deeper, the blonde coughed a little at the unfamiliar intrusion so far down his throat but relaxed as Dane’s fingers softened and gently massaged his scalp in reassurance.
The look of complete submission on Kobe’s face was too much for Dane and he pulled out of the male’s mouth. “On your back.” Dane barely comprehended his own voice as he pushed his mate down onto the bed. Kobe moaned as Dane’s hands ran down body and brushed over his erection then down to his ass.
“My mate…” Kobe groaned and his eyes rolled up as Dane lowered his face to Kobe’s ass and inhaled his scent. “Mine,” Dane growled and Kobe took his own dick in his hand.
“Yes! Yours,” Kobe cried and shuddered as Dane’s tongue began to bathe his entrance with a rumble of his beast against the blonde’s skin. “Yes, yes, yes…” the smaller male chanted and pumped his cock.
Neither boy had a clue what they were doing but they went on their instincts and Dane’s wolf was crying for release inside of his mate. Rising on his knees, the future Alpha flexed his muscles for his mate and pushed at the back of Kobe’s legs. “This is all mine. You, this, all of it. Do you understand my mate?” Those yellow eyes looked right into Kobe and he moaned his reply and bared his neck to Dane.
Lining up his dick to the warmth of Kobe’s ass, Dane pushed inside and listened to his male cry out—the sound filling the cabin and the smell of his sex so intense, Dane lost it. The sheets were thrown off the bed and Dane grabbed onto Kobe’s slender hips. The first thrust sent the bed slamming into the wall and Kobe gave out a strangled scream, his hands flying out the wall behind him. It was mind blowing, the feeling of Dane filling him was like heaven made flesh, hot and pulsing inside his ass as he was pushed to his limit.
Locking eyes with his mate, Dane rammed home again and again. He molded his body to Kobe’s chest and made sure his skin rubbed against his mate’s cock. He wanted to feel more of his boy, more of that sweaty heat, to get more of that fucking smell. God, it was unlike anything he’d ever known. His tongue lapped the sweat across Kobe’s nipple as he continued to thrust into his mate over and over. His wolf was howling in his head, his teeth extending into canines, his heart about to burst with the love he felt for Kobe.
The smaller blonde looked into his mate’s yellow eyes and panted as his body was filled and stretched by his lover. Never would anyone else touch him like this, not that he had ever wanted anyone else too. This was it for Kobe, Dane was all he would ever need. Threading his fingers into Dane’s hair, the blue eyed male brought his mate’s head to his untouched neck and moaned as the thrusts got deeper—that thick cock sliding right over his prostate.
Dane’s neck tilted to Kobe’s mouth on the other side and the blonde scented his mate mingling with the powerful wolf underneath. Their wolves greeted each other on a level that surpassed intimate and that was when Dane’s mouth drew back an inch and captured Kobe’s neck within his jaws. Those teeth sank home and Kobe shuddered uncontrollably, the bite of his mate claiming him like an orgasm to his bloodstream, the effect shocking his nerves from head to toe. He felt his wolf sweep over him and his eyes turned an autumn gold. His teeth lengthened and struck at the sweat soaked skin of Dane’s neck—locking the two of them together as they came in unison.
Dane parked his truck in front of the cabin and got out. Cracking his back he then grabbed up the groceries from the truck bed and brought them inside. Rock music blared from the small set of speakers Kobe had brought out to the compound’s guest cabin last week and Dane looked around for his mate. Setting down the groceries, he walked quietly out to the back porch to find Kobe shirtless and hanging clothes out on the line. With a grin, Dane growled and pounced, making Kobe drop the towel to the ground. Pushing him into the grass, Dane straddled Kobe’s ass with a grin.
The blonde laughed and turned over. Reaching up, he grabbed Dane’s face in his hands and brought those lips down for a scorching kiss. “What took you so long?”
“I couldn’t find the right shampoo body wash combo crap you use. I can’t believe you use that frilly shit.”
“You love the smell,” Kobe replied seductively and ran his hands over his neck and through his hair on purpose.
Dane leaned down and inhaled from Kobe’s neck to his scalp. “Honey,” he whispered. “Vanilla and something all you.”
Kobe laughed again and wrapped his legs around his mate’s nice tight ass. “See? Wasn’t the search worth it.”
“Yeah and now as my reward.” Dane sucked on Kobe’s neck. “I get to wash this little body thoroughly.”
“I see no problem in that reward.” With a gasp, Kobe laughed as Dane rose with him still attached and marched into the house.
“Love you,” Dane murmured as he pulled open the shower door in the corner and kissed Kobe slowly.
“Love you back,” Kobe whispered against his mate’s lips then shrieked as his mate threw him into the cold shower and ran off laughing.
“That’s what you get for making me search the fancy pants aisle for over forty five minutes!” Dane fell over laughing as Kobe stepped out of the shower looking like a wet cat with a scowl. “Oh…oh look at you.”
“Let’s see how funny it is when you sleep on the porch tonight,” Kobe hissed and narrowed his eyes. “And no…I won’t be joining you.”
“Ah come on baby. It was just a joke,” Dane pouted then frowned as Kobe shucked off his wet jeans and got into bed—rolling away from Dane’s eyes. “Kobe, I’m sorry it was just a joke. Please don’t be angry with me. Please, baby…”
Dane became distraught as he rounded the bed to plead his way back into this mate’s good graces. He didn’t want to sleep outside or away from Kobe and his wolf was about freak at the thought. His mate alone and unprotected, no way.
Kobe kept his eyes shut until he felt how upset Dane was getting and then cracked a smile. “Gotcha!” He sat up and laughed. Dane sighed in relief and then narrowed his eyes at his mate.
“That wasn’t very funny.”
“Oh yeah it was. I think you’ll remember this next time you try and pull a stunt like that. Throwing mate in the shower next time equals lonely porch floor. Ah, get up here you big baby. I think you’ve been tortured enough.” Kobe grinned and flipped back the covers. Dane pulled off his jeans and his shirt and slipped underneath the blankets. He wrapped himself around Kobe and sighed.
“That really wasn’t funny though.”
“Yes it was.” Kobe giggled into Dane’s neck and then squealed as his mate rolled on top of him. “Okay okay I give!”
“Nah, I think it’s my turn for torture now.” Dane grinned and Kobe’s eyes widened playfully.
It all started with a college letter. One that Kobe’s teacher had given him as a suggestion but the blonde had crumpled and threw under his bed because he would never have survived without Dane for that long. Kobe was never leaving anywhere without Dane and now thanks to that stupid letter offering a simple college tour, he never would. Dane was his home and Kobe was all Dane had ever needed…
