Finding His Mate... Ch. 05byprettyinpink32©
Madison slowly pried her eyes open, feeling sleep want to drag her back under and groaned. She tried to turn onto her back, but stopped once she felt the hard planes of a man's chest. Immediately she wanted to panic, but stopped when she realized where she was. Blinking her eyes, she looked down at the dark sheets around her body and sighed. She leaned further into Dante's warm chest and felt him nuzzle her neck before wrapping his arm around her waist.
"Good morning beautiful." Feeling giddy when he called her beautiful, she turned around in his arms and immediately regretted doing so when she felt her sore limbs. Hissing, she looked into his eyes and noticed there was a smirk on his face.
"What are you laughing at?" Dante shrugged his shoulders and kissed Madison's lips before he got out of the bed. Walking over to her side, he grabbed her slim ankle and pulled her to the edge, laughing when he heard her screech. Reaching down, he quickly scooped her up in his arms and walked to his bathroom. Setting her on the sink, he turned toward the bathtub and started some water.
Madison watched as he expertly started the water, adding many salts and bubbles in the process. "What are you doing?" Looking behind his shoulder, Dante gave her the 'you know what I'm doing' look and turned back around to attend to the bath. Seeing the bathtub was just the way he wanted it, Dante turned to her and reached for her hand.
Helping her off of the counter, he led her to the tub and got inside. He sat down and motioned for her to do the same, holding onto her so that she wouldn't fall.
Madison settled in between his legs and leaned back onto his hard chest. She rested her head on his shoulder and breathed out a long breath when she felt the warm water start to soothe her tired muscles. "This feels so good."
Laughing, Dante bent down and kissed the top of her head. Bending down so that he was at the nape of her neck, he saw the bite mark that he made the other day and growled. "You know it is starting to turn me on when you growl like that?" Madison said breathlessly, leaning her head to the side to allow him access to her neck.
Dante took her skin between his blunt teeth and pulled her flesh, kissing it lightly to soothe it. "I love it when you purr as well, even though I only heard it once." Dante felt her body temperature rise and wrapped his arms around her. "I'm serious. I love all of the sounds you make."
Laughing Madison detangled his arms from around her and turned around. She saw how his eyes immediately went down to her glistening breasts and raised her eyebrow. "You know my eyes are up here right."
Dante smiled sheepishly and leaned forward, placing a lingering kiss on her lips. "Yea well my dick certainly doesn't think so."
Slapping him on the shoulder, Madison turned around and reached for a bar of soap. Lathering it between her hands, she placed it on the edge of the tub and started working his chest with her hands. She saw his eyes turn bright and cocked her head to the side. Stopping her hands, she scrunched her eyebrows together. "Why do your eyes turn amber?"
Dante remembered how she asked him this same question just days ago and smirked. Reaching down, he wrapped his hands over hers and motioned for her to continue what she was doing. Sighing, Dante looked at her face.
"When my eyes turn amber that is my wolf surfacing." Madison looked into his eyes again and noticed they were there normal green. Feeling experimental all of a sudden, she slowly ran her hands down to his abdomen, letting her fingernails scrap the soft skin every so often. She felt him jump beneath her touch and looked back into his eyes, noticing they were once again amber. Madison reached for a rag and dipped it in the water. Ringing the water out over his chest until there wasn't a speck of soap on him, she let the rag go and moved so that she was firmly seated on his lap. She felt the head of his cock rub against her sensitive folds and fought the urge to moan.
Placing her hands on his shoulders, she looked into his hooded eyes and leaned forward, placing a soft kiss on his neck. She kissed up to his ear and heard a groan escape his throat when she tugged his earlobe between her teeth. "And when your wolf surfaces, what does he want?" She started moving her hips in a slow, circular motion and felt his cock jump every so often, causing her to moan his name softly in his ear.
Dante reached down and lightly grasped her hips, guiding them to grind even harder onto his cock. He heard what she said, but was at a lost for words at what she was doing to his body, specifically his awakening cock. He turned his head and captured her lips against his, pushing his hips up each time her hot heat brushed against him.
Madison moaned and broke the kiss, looking into his eyes. "You didn't answer my question."
Dante shook himself from the fog that was in his mind and focused on her eyes. Licking his lips, he grabbed a handful of her ass and smiled when he saw her head tilt slightly back. "He wants to take you until you are filled with so much pleasure to the point you will not remember your own name. He wants to protect you, hold you. He wants to make you his mate."
Madison watched as his eyes once again flashed amber and realized that all this time he has wanted to mate with her, but he never did. Even yesterday while they were making love, she remembered his eyes flashing , but he didn't answer the calls of his wolf. Leaning forward, she ran her wet fingers through his hair and watched as he closed his eyes and groaned in satisfaction.
"If your wolf wants to mate with me so bad, why won't you let him?"
Opening his eyes, Dante looked at Madison and felt his wolf howl to him.
'Mate with her. She wants to mate with us!'
Mentally shaking his head, he tried to push his wolf back, but seemed unable to do so.
'No. You will mate with her now! I am not standing in the back any longer. Your little run in the woods did not sate my desire to be with my mate.'
Dante mentally sighed his defeat and watched as his wolf tilted his head up at his success before focusing back on Madison. He reached his hand up from the water and lightly stroked her cheek.
"I have my reasons for why I did not allow a mating yet. I was scared that you were not ready and would regret to have me as your mate. I wanted to give you enough time to think over everything that involves in a mating so that you will make a decision you will not regret."
Madison reached her hand up and covered his hand that was on her cheek with hers. She turned her head and placed a kiss on his palm. "Although I understand your reasons, I believe that I should be the one making the decisions about my well being." She watched as he turned his head sheepishly smiling and slapped his shoulder.
"I'm serious Dante." Looking into her eyes, Dante leaned forward and kissed her lips. He wrapped his arms around her and nuzzled her neck.
"I know and I am sorry that I made the decision for you." He released his hold on her and watched as she settled back down on his lap. "Since you would like to start making the decisions on your own, you will make the decision of when you would like to officially mate with me."
Madison nodded her head and looked into his eyes. Smiling, she tilted her head back and started laughing.
Dante looked at her curiously, tilting his head to the side while he watched her bellow with laughter. "What's wrong?" Shaking her head, Madison settled down and looked back at him.
"Nothing. It's just that it seems you have been handing things over to me and I feel you are not use to it." Dante watched as she started laughing again and couldn't help but laugh himself. Standing up, he threw Madison over his shoulder, ignoring her startled scream, and walked out of the bathroom. Throwing her on the bed, he immediately covered her body with his and looked down into her eyes. He covered her mouth with his own and slowly grinded his hips against hers, swallowing the low moans that were starting to form in her throat.
"Yea but I still have you bending to my will when I am providing your body with the greatest pleasure it has ever experienced." Biting her bottom lip, Madison opened her mouth in a silent 'o' when she felt him slowly fill her with his thick manhood. She released a low, long moan when he pulled back and slowly entered her again. Wrapping her arms and legs around him, she pulled him close to her body. She heard him chuckle and looked into his eyes.
"What are you laughing at?" Pulling back his hips, Dante entered her slowly once again, this time making sure he rubbed up against her clit. He watched as she bit her bottom lip, trying to suppress the moan she really wanted to let out. Reaching down between them, Dante flicked her clit with his thumb and smirked when she moaned out his name.
"Point proven." Dipping his head in the crook of her neck, Dante proceeded in bringing his mate pleasure over and over again into the afternoon.
Dante stepped out the shower and quickly dried off his body before walking into his bedroom. Going to his dresser, he pulled on some clothes and put on his shoes. He had a meeting with Gino and the boys soon and he knew Gino would irritate him mentally to the point of insanity. He ran his fingers through his head and over to the side of the bed, looking down at Madison's peaceful face. He knew he pushed her to the limit and would not be surprised if she stayed asleep until late into the night. He smiled in male pride at his ability to give his mate the ride of her life and placed a chaste kiss on her lips. Looking down at her one last time, he ran his thumb over her soft cheek and turned around. He walked out the door and quickly navigated his way to his office, making a mental note to notify Moe that Madison would no longer be working at his diner. He walked through the door and nodded his head at Gino and Rich before walked over to his desk. Sitting down, he ran his hand down his face, preparing for what they had to tell him.
"What's up?" Gino cleared his throat and took a step forward. He looked down at Dante and sighed.
"We have bad news."
Standing in front of the huge mahogany doors, he looked down the hall, making sure nobody was around before he quickly entered the room. He knew his Alpha was at a meeting and was surprised that he left his mate unattended after everything that was going on. Walking to the side of the bed, he looked down at the lovely face of Madison and immediately smelled sex reeking off of her. He sniffed the air once again, making sure he smelled correctly, and immediately became nervous. The Master was not going to like this. He was not going to like this at all.
Quickly taking one last look at Madison, he placed a note on the end table and left the room. He looked around, making sure nobody was walking the halls, and quietly slipped into the shadows.
"So you are telling me that Dylan was infected?" Dante watched as Gino and Rich nodded their heads simultaneously and leaned back into his chair. Scratching his chin that was slowly growing a slight stubble, Dante closed his eyes. This was turning out to be one big puzzle that he didn't like. It seemed there were so many components in this big situation that did not make sense.
"You are telling me that Dylan was infected with some kind of drug that caused him to react how he did and that is why he attacked us? Because he was somehow being controlled through this drug to act rashly? And all though he had a crush on Madison, because he was infected it heightened his need for her?" He asked out loud more to himself than to anyone. Recalling everything that has happened between him and Madison, Dante remembered his mental note that he made back at the club when he first met Madison. Opening his eyes, he looked over at Rich.
"Go to the club and inspect the whole place. I remember the bartender slipping something in Madison's drink. Check to see if you can find whatever it was that he had and see if that somehow matches what was in Dylan's system." Directing his attention to Gino, he continued. "Check on Moe. Do whatever you need to do for him to tell you why he could not recognize my scent on Madison. I feel like whoever is behind this whole revolution will have people on the inside on his side, telling them all the in's and out's in the packs." Running his hands down his face, he stood up from his chair and walked over to pour himself a glass of whiskey. Although he was not a big drinker, when it came to times like this, he needed a drink.
He swallowed down the drink and closed his eyes, reveling in the burning sensation going down his throat. He put the glass down and faced his Betas. "I'll call Carlo and see what is going on. Is Alexandra still here?"
Gino shook his head and stuffed his hands inside his pockets. "No. She went back to do damage duty at home."
Dante nodded his head and placed his glass down. "I guess we will meet back up later on in the day." Nodding their heads, both Rich and Gino exited the study, leaving Dante alone to his thoughts.
Dante waited until the doors were closed before he walked to his window and looked out at the afternoon sky. So much was going on and he didn't know where to start. First he still had to think of the attacks that were approaching his pack. Then he had to think of keeping Madison safe. And now he had to think of this newfound news of a drug being passed around that was making wolves and vampires act rashly and losing their senses. Sighing, he placed his head on the window.
"What am I missing?" he said to the still air. Shaking his head once, Dante turned around. He walked over to his desk and was about to sit when he smelled fear in the air. Immediately coming to alert, ready to protect his pack, he walked out of the study and looked down the halls. He smelt the air again and followed the scent, noticing it was coming from his chambers. Picking up his pace, he felt his wolf push forward, growling to be released and shred whoever was causing fear to emit from their mate. Approaching the doors to his bedroom, he pushed through and found Madison frantically looking around, holding a letter in her hand.
"What is it?" Looking up, Madison clashed eyes with Dante's concerned ones and immediately erupted into tears.
Dante was at her side in a second and cradled her in his arms, feeling his wolf pace in his mind at seeing their mate in misery. He maneuvered her so that she was straddling his lap and gently cupped her face, looking down into her brown eyes. "What is wrong?"
Madison looked at Dante and wanted to tell him nothing was wrong and she could handle it, but knew she couldn't. Bowing her head, she breathed in a deep breath, trying to stop the tears that were still running down her face.
"He knows where I am." At first Dante did not hear what she said and if it wasn't for his keen hearing, he probably wouldn't have heard anything. Understanding who 'he' was, Dante took the letter from her hand and urged her to rest her head on his chest. He brought the letter to eye level and quickly scanned it over, feeling his anger rise within him as he read each word. He clenched his teeth together and willed his wolf to calm down, although he wanted to do exactly what his wolf was playing in his mind. He placed the letter on his bed and gently rocked Madison who was still crying.
"Sshh. It's ok. He won't hurt you again. I promise you that." He ran his hands up and down her back, getting up to sit in one of the chairs that were placed in his bedroom. He gently placed Madison down and walked over to his closet to grab his robe. Draping it over her, he walked to the door and called for an Omega.
"Can you change these sheets for me please? I would do it myself, but I am a little preoccupied." He watched as she quickly scurried along, grabbing a pair of sheets from the closet in the hallway and enter the room. Walking over to the bed, Dante removed the letter and sat across the chair from Madison, digesting everything in it. What kind of man would send a letter to a woman describing how they are going to find them and beat them to death? He felt himself start to once again get angry and took in a deep breath.
Counting down from ten, he looked over just in time to see that the Omega was leaving and walked over to Madison. He picked her up effortlessly and pulled back the sheets to his bed, placing her under them. He saw that her eyes were getting glossy again and felt miserable about his inability to comfort her. Kicking off his shoes, he got in beside her and wrapped her in his arms. He kissed the top of her and tightened his hold on her when he felt her body shake from her silent sobs. "Everything will be ok. I promise."
He mentally called Gino and continued to comfort Madison until her heard her steady breathing, telling him she was asleep. He unwrapped his arms from around her body, slipped off the bed, and walked over to the chair he was just in moments ago. He heard a knock at the door and walked over to let Gino in.
"Yea boss?" Placing his fingers on his lips, Dante looked over his shoulder Madison and motioned to the set of chairs. He sat down waited for Gino to sit across from him. Handing Gino the letter, Dante waited for his reaction.
'What is this?' He motioned for Gino to read and watched as Gino's eyes quickly scanned the words on the paper. 'Madison has a lover?'
"No dipshit. She has an abusive ex that just threatened her life, telling her that when he finds her he was going to make her wish she was dead.'
Gino frowned up his face and looked over at Madison, who seemed to be sleeping peacefully. He immediately did not like the idea of someone wanting to hurt her and could not understand why someone would want to. Although he knew nothing about her, he did know she had a sweet soul and deserved the best. Looking back at Dante, he titled his head. 'And how exactly did this letter get in here?'
Dante sat up his chair and ran over what Gino said to him. Taking the letter from Gino's hand, he quickly sniffed it and felt himself growl.
"Son of a bitch." Getting up from his seat, he looked over at Madison, making sure she was still sleep and looked down at Gino.
"Get Moe and place in him a holding cell. Do it quickly before he finds out we know it was him who placed this letter in here. Call Rich and tell him to come back." Gino nodded his head and quickly exited the room.
Dante felt his breath quicken at the prospect of Moe wanting to hurt Madison and pulled his phone from his pocket. Quickly dialing Tiffany's number, he waited for her to answer.
"What do you want?" Dante huffed and ran his fingers through his hair.
"I need you to come over and watch over Madison for me while I handle some matters. It seems as though her little friend decides now is the perfect time to threaten her life and one of my pack members are involved." He heard ruffling on the other side of the line and knew Tiffany was in motion of leaving.
"I'll be there in thirty." Hanging up his phone, Dante walked over to the side of his bed and got back in. He drew Madison close to his body, resting her head on his chest and closed his eyes. That son of a bitch was going to pay, he kept replaying in his head over and over again.
Madison groaned when she felt pain go through her head and instantly regretted crying her eyes out. She reached her hand out and noticed Dante was not in the bed with her anymore. Rubbing her eyes, she rose up from the bed and shrieked when she saw Tiffany at the edge, looking at her with a smirk on her face. Quickly closing Dante's robe, she placed a hand over her chest.
"Geez Tiff. You could have made some kind of noise when you saw me moving around up here." Shrugging her shoulders, Tiffany quickly moved up the bed and wrapped Madison in a bear hug.
