He gasped and clutched at Kate in panic, in horror. What had he done, what did he do?
“Garrett you need to calm down!” Kate ordered, shaking him softly as he began to panic once more. “I don’t know what you did Garrett but we can fix it okay, we can fix it.”
Garrett shook his head vigorously at that. He didn’t know if he could, he had ineffectively shattered his mates trust in his fear filled cowardice. Mate… for so long he had searched for his mate and he had found her, he had seen her beast and escaped from her flames… he was so close.
“Do you want me to ring Peter?” Kate asked hesitantly before cringing as Garrett jerked back and shook his head no, eyes wide and panicked.
“No, I need to go back. She trusted me with her past and I ran from her… Kate she is my mate and I ran in fear from her.” He explained, ending it with a broken whine and stunning Kate to the core.
He had never felt so weak, so emotionally compromised to the point he wished for the ability to cry. He was the calm one, the levelheaded soldier with the affinity for pretty words and charm. And as much as he wished for Peter’s knowledge, he knew that his friend thought Enyo to be dead, so until he got the full story, no-one must know about her.
With a deep unneeded breath he pulled himself together and stood, helping Kate to her feet while he did so. “I have to fix this myself.”
“Then go Garrett, you’ve delayed yourself too much. Call me if you need me.”
He gave her a thankful smile and placed a kiss upon her crown before pushing his flight instincts down and ran back towards his Mate.
Author Note: Yes Garrett you go back…
