Finding His Mate Too: Daniel Ch. 03byprettyinpink32©
"Mmmm. Baby I think you're getting better at this sex thing." Dante looked down at Madison, who was lounging on his chest smiling up at him dreamily and laughed. Wrapping one arm around her, he reached up with his other to lightly stroke her cheek.
"I'm the one getting better? If I last recall, you were the one who was just a virgin not too many weeks ago." Dante again laughed when Madison playfully slapped him on the chest before looking into her eyes. It still amazed him that she was here with him. To say that he was just in love with her was an understatement of his feelings for her. Now he understood the love that his parents had for each other. Bending down, he placed a sweet kiss on her lips. "You know I love you." Madison smiled up at him before nodding her head. She moved so that she was straddling his thighs and leaned forward, placing a tender kiss on his chest.
"And you know I love you." Dante grabbed the back of her head and brought her lips down to his. He ran his hands down the expanse of her back swallowing the moan that escaped from her. Pulling away from the kiss, he leaned back against the bed and looked up into Madison's now molten amber eyes.
"You know I never got to meet your wolf properly, which sucks because now I'm gonna have to wait a whole nine months in order to meet her." Dante glanced his eyes down at her relatively flat stomach and smiled. Truth be told, he couldn't wait to see his child and if what Daniel said was true, he knew he would be in trouble.
Madison watched as Dante was lost in his own thoughts and wondered what he was thinking. "What are you looking dreamily about?"
Dante looked up at her and placed a smile on his face. "I was just laughing because I know I'm going to be in trouble when our little girl is born." He saw confusion spread across her face and chuckled. "You know you look so cute when you're confused. But to answer your unspoken question, Daniel told me."
Moving from off his lap, Madison curled up beside him, throwing a leg across his waist. She expelled a long yawn and placed her hand on his chest. "Do you wonder what other abilities Daniel has? From what I have seen, he seems to be able to sense things. For example, the first time I saw him was at your club. He randomly just appeared in front of me and although I should have been scared, I wasn't. There was something so familiar and safe about him. Then we both see him when Dylan attacked us in the woods. It's like he knows when his family is in danger or something."
Dante thought over everything Madison said and had to agree with her. He knew his brother inhabited a strength that no one else possessed, yet he never told anyone what kind of abilities they were. Sighing deeply, he looked down at Madison who was softly snoring and placed a kiss on her forehead. He was just about to close his eyes to sleep when heard a mental call from Daniel.
'Is it urgent? I'm kind of on my way to a peaceful sleep with my mate.' He heard Daniel laugh and couldn't help but laugh himself. There was something contagious about Daniel's laugh that made him laugh even when nothing was funny.
"Unless you want to clean up Alessia's blood, I suggest you come quickly." Dante groaned at the mention of Alessia's name and closed his eyes. If there was one thing he was starting to get tired of hearing, it was his pack members complaining about Alessia's very loose ways. If he was completely honest with himself, it was truly starting to wear him out.
'I'm on my way.' Dante closed off his mind from his brother and took Madison's hand in between his own. Slowly placing it on her hip, he slithered off the bed, making sure to place her leg down softly. Moving to his dresser, he grabbed a pair of sweatpant and pulled them over his hips. He grabbed a shirt and glanced at at Madison before walking out the door. He made his way toward his brother's bedroom, hoping that he got there in time before any blood was shed. He sped up as he thought about this and before he knew if, he was standing in front of the soon to happen fight. He looked over at Daniel, who was holding back a smile and shook his head.
Walking forward, he stepped in between the two women who were growling at each and moved them apart. He sent a mental command to Daniel and Alexandra telling them to each grab one of the women and sighed in relief when they did. Closing his eyes, he took in a deep breath and counted back from ten.
"I'm... going to need you two to shut up so that I can get my thoughts together."
Tiffany looked at Dante and immediately felt her wolf recess to the back of her mind. She snuck on last glare at Alessia and leaned back into Daniel. She really wished Dante didn't show up when he did. If he would have walked just a little bit slower, she would have at least been able to land a punch to Alessia's jaw. She felt Daniel's arms wrap around her and figured he must have heard her thoughts.
Dante opened his eyes and looked at both of the women. "I know that you two have bad blood between each other or whatever, but I am getting damn near tired of it. I don't know what you guys have to do, but it better be done quick."
"But I-" Dante snapped his hand up stopping Alessia from talking any further. Truth be told, all that he was saying was really directed towards her, not Tiffany.
"I don't want to hear another word. You and your antics have been disrupting the peace of the pack ever since you have been given the title of Beta. I don't know how much authority you think you have, but you better check yourself. Challenging people for the right to be someone's mate. What you need to do is stop wanting something that you can't have. Your mate can be right in your fucking face, but you're too hot and bothered to see it." Dante stopped and took in another deep breath. "For the moment, you will be stripped of you Beta status and moved to the Omega quarters. I want you to see how it is to be treated how you treat people. That will be all."
They all watched as Dante turned and left with their mouths open. Daniel was actually surprised that Dante had gone easy on Alessia. He knew if his parents were still alive, especially his father, she would have been given a harsher punishment..
Turning Tiffany around in his arms, he looked down into her eyes and smiled. He brought her in for a hug and kissed the top of her head. Looking at Alexandra, he titled his head toward the end of the hall and watched as she silently escorted Alessia out of the manor. He hoped that this would be Alessia's saving grace because he knew for a fact that if she caused trouble again Dante would not take it easy on her.
"You know I was really hoping that you would kick her ass. You should have seen how fast James left when she came up here. He went ghost." He felt Tiffany laugh against him and pulled out of the hug. Bending down, he placed a kiss of her lips. He felt her hands wrap around his neck and deepened the kiss. Oh how much he wished he could go back to when he was deep inside her body. He bent down slightly and picked her up, holding her ass in his hands.
Turning around, he maneuvered her in his arms so that he could open his bedroom door and stepped over the threshold. He kicked the door closed with his foot and walked toward the foot of his bed. He gently placed her down, breaking the kiss in the process. Looking down at her swollen lips, he felt his cock start to come alive in his pants.
His eyes traveled down her clothed body and he felt a growl escaped from his throat. The last thing he wanted was for her body to be covered from his gaze. He placed his hands on her thighs and slowly worked them up, taking his shirt between his fingers. He stepped back and brought it over her head, once again amazed at his mate's body. Tossing the shirt behind his shoulder, he stepped in between her open legs and looked down into her brown eyes. He reached up and placed the palm of his hand on her cheek and sucked in a deep breath when she turned her head and kissed it softly. "You are so amazing."
Tiffany smiled and moved up Daniel's bed. What she really wanted him to do was speed up and extinguish the heat that was in between her legs. She watched as he slowly unbuttoned his jeans and pulled them down over his hips. He moved onto the bed and settled himself in between her legs, placing his hands on either side of her head.
Daniel stared down at her for a moment longer before swooping down and kissing her squarely on the lips. He felt her move beneath him, silently commanding him to quicken his pace and smiled. Breaking the kiss, he placed his head where her shoulder and neck met and inhaled her scent. He placed a slow kiss on her pulse before rolling onto his back. "Goodnight."
Tiffany looked up at the ceiling bewildered at what just happened. Here she was with a body heat well above inferno and all he did was ignore her needs and decide that he wanted to go to sleep. She looked over at him and punched him on his side when she saw the smug expression on his face. "Ummmm..."
Daniel sighed lightly and pulled her to his side. "I'm too tired and I would rather not start something without finishing. Soon enough, we will continue what we started before Alexandra interrupted us." He kissed her lips to silence any rebuttal she may have been thinking and closed his eyes. If he looked down into her clouded eyes again, he knew for sure he would lose what little control he had left. He felt her shift in his arms a little and bit his bottom lip when her leg rubbed up against his cock.
This woman was going to be the death of him. Here he was, trying to be the perfect gentleman and not rush her into anything so that she would have time to think about her actions, and all she wanted to do was get right down to it. He felt her small hand slide up his chest and groaned.
At this point, Tiffany didn't care what Daniel was trying to do. She wanted him in between her legs right now. She felt his body tense when she started to rub his chest and smiled. Moving her body over his, she slowly sank down on top of his cock, moaning at the skin-to-skin contact. She looked down at him and saw that his eyes were now closed and mouth open. Bending forward, she placed a lingering kiss on the corner of his mouth. She moved to the other corner and placed a kiss there as well. Kissing up to his ear, she pulled it in between her teeth and moaned. "Baby don't you want to feel how wet I am for you?" She emphasized her point by slowly grinding onto him. She felt his hands slid up her waist and ground into him again. Leaning up, she kissed him on his lips, plunging her tongue inside and sighing when she tasted his distinct flavor. She reached to move his cock inside of her and squeaked when he flipped them over so that he was on top.
Daniel knew exactly what Tiffany was trying to do when she did her little act of seduction on him. She would have been successful too had he not held onto his self-control. He looked down at her upturned face and smiled. "Honey. I think you forgot that I'm not some young pup with little to no self-control. Your little trick that you just played on me, although incredibly sexy, had little to no affect." He bent down and placed a soul-searing kiss on her lips before rolling off her body and turning off his bedside lamp. "Goodnight sweetheart." Pulling Tiffany in his arms, he smiled when he heard her call him an asshole under his breath and closed his eyes. If only she knew.
Dante breathed in the fresh outside air and sighed. He hadn't been able to truly enjoy the outside air around him in a long time and to be able to do so today was relaxing him with each passing second. Walking down the front steps of the manor, he made a beeline toward the woods, stuffing his hands in his pocket. He was just entering when he heard what sounded like crying.
Sniffing the air, he followed the scent and realized that it was his sister. He picked up his pace and stopped when he found her just on the edge of the river sitting down on the grass cross-legged. Walking up beside her, he sat down and waited for her to say something.
"Have you ever regretted anything?" Dante glanced over at her before looking back at the river. He didn't know where the question came from, but he wasn't not going to answer it. He ran his hands down the front of his face and thought for a minute.
"There have been times when I wanted to regret some things in my life, but in the end I figured there was no use. I made the decision and I had to move on from it. Why do you ask?" Dante watched as Alexandra opened her mouth to tell him something but stopped. She turned her head and looked down at the ground before looking back at him with a forced smile on her face.
"No reason. I was just going through some things I guess." Dante watched as she jumped up and walked quickly back to the direction of the manor. There was something she wasn't telling him obviously, but he wondered what it was. In order for it to have her crying, he knew that it had to be something serious since Alexandra never cried. Shaking his head, he rose up from the grass.
"So much for having a peaceful walk." Turning on his heels, he walked back to the manor still thinking about what just transpired between him and Alexandra. If his gut was correct, he had a feeling that it had to do with something back at home. He thought it was strange that she was spending more time all the way on the east coast instead of her home on the west. He hoped that it had something to do more so with the pack than her mate because the last thing he wanted to do was make a little visit over there. He had a feeling that it wouldn't be pretty.
He felt a headache start to approach as he was walking back up the front stairs and cursed under his breath. What he would give to be wrapped in Madison's arms right now. Turning the corner, he navigated his way to his office and opened the door. He was surprised to see Dr. Orvine sitting in the chair across from his desk and smiled. There was something about the doctor that was so inviting, even if he was a nervous wreck most of the time. Nodding his head in acknowledgement, Dante made his way to the other side and sat down. "What can I do for you doctor?"
Dr. Orvine cleared his throat before leaning forward in his chair. "Well... I looked over all of Madison's data and I just wanted to tell you that she and the baby are fine. Actually they are finer than fine. They are very healthy, which is strange because I expected to see some trauma, but there was none. I also wanted to tell you that I saw your sister crying just a few moments ago and was concerned. We both know that your sister barely cries." Dante closed his eyes and nodded his head. He missed the truly concerned look that passed James' face and sighed before opening his eyes.
"Yes. I tried to see what was bothering her, but it seems she isn't ready to tell me just yet. I hope that it is nothing too bad, although I have a feeling I am just lying to myself with that hope. Thanks for being concerned though." James nodded his head then looked down at the folder on his lap. He wondered if he should say what he was planning to say next and played with the edge of the folder nervously.
"If you don't mind me asking, what is it that you think is bothering her?" Dante looked at the doctor with confusion written on his face. He wondered why Dr. Orvine was all of a suddenly interested in Alexandra's well-being and was about to comment on this when there was a knock at his door. Telling the person on the other side to enter, he smiled when he saw that it was Madison. He looked back at Dr. Orvine, who was already taking his leave and sighed. This man moved way too fast for his liking. Calling out his name, he waited until James was facing him before continuing. "We can finish this discussion some other time."
Madison greeted Dr. Orvine before walking over to Dante and standing behind him. She started massaging his shoulders and smiled when she heard him groan quietly. She knew he was stressed as soon as she entered his office and she wondered why. "What has you so tense?"
"Everything. First, I have to figure who is threatening your life, then I have to figure out a way to protect the pack as well, and now I have this feeling that whatever is upsetting Alexandra has to do with the pack and all this shit going on. And to put the cherry on top of this sundae, I also have this other feeling that James is interested in Alexandra, which is strange because she is mated to Luke." Madison frowned up her face when she heard the name James and figured it must have been Dr. Orvine's name. She leaned his head back so that his lips were turned up to her and kissed them.
"Hey. Don't be so stressed. Everything will come out in the open soon enough. To be honest, I have a feeling it won't happen until many years from now. Of course you should be two steps ahead before then, but don't stress yourself out." Dante took her hand in his own and brought it to his lips.
"Since when did you become so wise?" Madison shrugged her shoulders and walked around him so that she was sitting on his lap.
"I don't know. I guess because I am around you all of the time, your wisdom rubbed off on me." Dante chuckled at Madison's statement. The last thing he believed he obtained was wisdom. He leaned back further into his chair and wrapped his arms around her waist.
"I think my sister is regretting mating to Luke. She asked me if I ever regretted anything when I found her crying by the river. For Alexandra to say that she regrets something, it has to be big." Madison thought about what he was saying and shrugged her shoulders.
"Babe, to be honest, there is nothing you can really do right now. I know how much you want to protect all of us, but if she isn't ready to tell you, don't try to force it out. As I said before, I believe everything will come out in the open later on down the road. The pieces will fall together on your lap and you're going to use this wisdom that you have in your head to solve it." Dante smiled when she tapped him on his head for emphasis and leaned forward to kiss her lips.
"I guess you are right." He continued to place small kissed on them as he ran his hands up her back. "Mmm... I think I'm going to head over and pay Luke a visit."
Madison nodded her head absently, not really processing what he was saying and continued to kiss him on the lips. Ever since she found out she was pregnant, her sex drive has been on overload and all she could think about was having Dante in between her legs at every minute. She felt him lightly push on her shoulders and placed a pout on her lips. "I think I'm going to pay Luke a visit."
"Why? I just told you to stay out of him and Alexandra's business and here you are trying to run all the way to west coast to figure out something that isn't meant for you to figure out. You have to listen to me on this one babe. Stay out of it." Madison watched as he reluctantly nodded his head and sighed. He wasn't going to listen to her. The one thing she knew about Dante was that he was stubborn and would do whatever he wanted to do. "At least give them some time to hopefully work out whatever they have going on between them."
"And how long am I supposed to wait?" Madison thought about this for a minute and shrugged her shoulders.
"I don't know. A year or two." She saw Dante open his mouth to rebuttal what she said and put her hand up to silence him. "Nope. Give them a year or two. Who knows if there is really something going on between them in the first place? Alexandra may just be having one of those days. Wait a year or two and if she is still not being herself, then interfere." Dante sat back, thought about what Madison told him, and decided he should probably listen to her. However, as soon as the two-year mark went pass and nothing changed, he would be on his way to the Brennan pack land.
