She waited in front of her home for her mate and the succubus and had been here the moment their footsteps reached her ears and for their sparks to flicker under her shield. Oh how she wanted to tear the blonde to pieces but she wouldn’t, she couldn’t do that to her mate no matter how much she desired it.
He invoked many feelings in her, feelings she had thought lost to the testament to time and bloodshed. Yet she felt joy, desire, confusion, jealousy… she felt human again after years of being a monster.
She would do this for him.
“You do not need to slow.” She informed as they began to drop in pace, sighing as they continued to do so until they were walking out of the tree lines. She was pleased and surprised to see that her mate was two feet away from the succubus unlike standing side by side when she first saw them together.
“Thank you for inviting me, I know it is hard on you.” Kate greeted politely, bowing her head in shock and earning a cocked brow in return.
Sabel stared back at her, the only sign of emotion was the cocked brow. “Yes, it is hard on me when I know what you are and know you are unclaimed. My mate has informed me that you and he were never that close and I believe him, so I will fight my instincts to rip and burn you for him. He said that I would like you, we shall see.”
Garrett let out a silent exhale, his shoulders relaxing from their tense position while following her into the house. He didn’t expect that, he expected growls and threats… some form of attack but… he felt guilty now as he realised that he expected the worse from her, yet he knew that she had brilliant restraint and control over her beast.
“I forgive you if that will help.” Sabel whispered taking him off-guard, her eyes downcast and voice soft. “A day will not change a lifetime of knowledge.”
“Still, I should not have…” His eyes widened as his mate laid her finger upon his lips gently to quiet him.
Sabel held back the shudder that threatened to run down her spine as the spark from touching his lips burned up her arms, hotter than any fire she had produced… yet it comforted her, soothed her. She shifted her hand, running her finger up from his lips and over her cheekbone until her hand rested at the base of his jaw and against his neck.
“And I understand… now… let it be.” She stressed before dropping her hand and turning around to face the succubus who was watching them with a fond smile and glittering gold eyes.
It was going to be a long afternoon.
