I walked down the street, wondering if the smirk I had was permanently etched onto my face. At least
Alpha Asher now knew that I acted this way all of the time.
Even with a new Alpha in charge, things in this small town remained the same. Only a handful of
people had actually changed. Unfortunately, none of the assholes had changed.
I wandered around aimlessly, missing the taste of mocha coffee on my tongue.
“Did we really have to dump the coffee on him?” I grumbled.
Maya rolled her eyes, “What else did you expect us to do?”
“I don’t know.” I sighed, “Throat punch him?”
Maya’s ears perked up, “sh*t, I wish I would’ve thought about that. Can we go back?”
I snickered at her, “Maybe next time. I’m sure this won’t be the last time he says some stupid sh*t.”
“Promise?” Maya sounded hopeful.
I headed back home, feeling as though my day had been completely uneventful. When I walked in the
door I was greeted by the smell of my grandma’s cooking. Plates of sweets were scattered all along the
counter, and she was just pulling a pan of brownies out to cool.
“Oooh.” I cooed, reaching to pick up one of her cookies when she smacked my hand away.
“Not for you, miss!” My grandma scolded me, “Their for the other families in this pack that lost someone
in the fight.”
I sighed, the cookies really did look amazing.
My grandma’s stern look softened and she handed me a cookie.
“Now go outside and help your dad with the garden.” She pushed me towards the back door and I
“Don’t sass me. You have your cookie, now go!” She shooed me away.
I stuffed the cookie into my mouth and groaned at the chocolate-y goodness.
I could see my dad on his knees digging up some of the dead flowers. Mom always had a huge garden,
something she had picked up from grandma.
“I see the dictator has ordered you to work too.” My dad grumbled with a smile on his face.
“Yes sir.” I smirked, getting down to help him.
“Did she pay you with sweets too?” My dad chuckled.
I laughed at him, “Yup, she gave me a cookie.”
“Really? I got two cookies and a brownie.” My Dad smirked while my mouth opened in shock.
“Grandma that’s not fair.” I yelled towards the back door.
Her head popped out and looked between the two of us, “What isn’t fair?”
“You gave him more than me!” I gave her a pout, “Equal wages for equal work!” I protested.
She smirked at me, “Your dad was out here since you left this morning.” And with that she popped her
head back inside.
“You want to sneak some when she isn’t looking?” My Dad proposed earning a sly smile from me.
I snickered, “You know she’s gonna catch us right?”
“Not if we run fast enough.” My dad shrugged, but a smile played at his lips. “I’m still fast for an old
“Neither one of us is gonna be fast if we keep eating her sweets.” I cackled, ripping up another dead
Dad frowned, “You’re most certainly right.”
We made small talk as we pulled the dead plants from my mom’s garden. We pulled the small saplings
out of their containers and planted them with the soil my grandma bought. Hours had passed and we
were finally finished. I looked at the now lively garden and smiled.
“Mom would like this.” I smiled at Dad, pointing to the gardenia’s scattered about.
My dad chuckled, “She’d be surprised to see us working in the garden.”
“She’d probably freak out and say we were doing it wrong.” We both laughed until tears burned our
Mom was hard to get along with, but that didn’t change the place she held in my heart.
Grandma called us inside and handed us each a sandwich, bag of chips and a soda. After munching
on our food, I headed back outside.
An errant thought crossed my mind and I remembered the swimming hole Tyler and I used to go to. We
never told anyone else about it, keeping it between ourselves. It was one of the most magical things I
had ever seen. It was nestled deep in the woods, far off any path. The best thing about the swimming
hole was that the patrol teams never got close enough to find it.
Impulsively, I turned around and headed in the direction of the woods. I crossed countless houses and
a few shops until the buildings became much scarcer. I crossed the street and walked through a
playground for children. I peeked around to make sure no one was looking, and slipped into the woods.
It was almost a thirty minute hike through the woods until I could hear the running water.
My face broke out into a smile when I looked at the swimming hole. It looked even better than it had.
The water was crystal clear. The waterfall at the top was roaring as it splashed into the ponds surface.
Tyler and I had spent countless summers sneaking off to the swimming hole.
When I looked at this place, all of the memories that accompanied it popped into my head. I was
surprised at how happy I felt. It had taken me almost six months to fully move on from Tyler, but I was
completely at ease now that I had.
“Well are you just gonna stand here and stare at it?” Maya teased me.
I giggled and stripped down to my bra and underwear, setting my clothes against one of the many
I climbed up to the top of the waterfall and jumped in with an excited squeal. The cool water felt
amazing on my heated skin. This was definitely the best way to cool off after gardening for hours.
I swam under the waterfall and giggled as it rushed over my head, making pieces of my hair cling to my
I took deep breaths of the humid air around me. The smell was always once of my favorite parts of the
hidden swimming hole. It smelled like clean water and damp earth.
I swam over to one of the large rocks protruding from the water and pulled myself up onto it. The rock
was the perfect size and shape to lay out on. The water lapped at my knees, submerging my feet in
their cool depths.
My mind wandered back to when Tyler and I would come here. We’d have some pretty heavy make-out
sessions here and occasionally I would let him roam his hands over my body. We never made it further
than that, thankfully.
I let my mind wander, and was surprised when Alpha Asher made his way into my thoughts. While the
man irritated me to no end, it was fun making him angry. I thought about the way he looked this
morning, how his anger made him even s*xier.
I snapped out of my thoughts when I realized my hand had traveled much lower on my body, running
along my dampened slit.
While my brain recoiled at the thought of touching myself to Alpha Asher, it had been such a long time
since I pleasured myself. I let out a small sigh as my finger ran over my cl*t.
My small moans filled the quiet forest and I gave myself over to the sensations filling my body. I let a
finger slide inside of my pu**y, gently pumping it in and out as the pressure in my core began to build.
My head snapped forward at the sound of rustling bushes. I wrote it of as a deer or some other animal.
The cool water turned hot as Alpha Asher stepped into view, his toffee colored eyes swirled with gold.
My breath caught in my throat, and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. How in the hell did he find me
out here? Did he follow me?
I yanked my hand from my underwear and slid into the water. My heart pounded in my chest at the
thought of him catching me, but I couldn’t place whether it was embarrassment or excitement. I
submerged myself in the water up to my collar bones, keeping my eyes locked on his face.
“Get out of the water, Lola.” His rough voice commanded me, and I felt my core clench.
I looked at him stubbornly, wondering what he thought he was doing. I wasn’t in the wrong here. I was
simply minding my business, enjoying myself and the water. It was him who came along and disrupted
“Lola.” His voice came out as a warning. I was already testing his patience, not that he had much to
“Get out of the water.” He snapped, his muscular body was tense. Some relaxation would do him well.
I glared at his god-like face, “No.”
“No?” His eyebrow raised as his eyes seared my skin. He sounded as though he had never heard that
“Did I stutter?” My glare quickly became a smirk as I felt the anger that radiated from him. Any other
wolf would be cowering in fear by now, I wonder why I was different.
His voice took on that calm tone, the one that sent shivers down my spine. “Have you already forgotten
what I told you this morning?”
My smirk deepened, “I didn’t forget, I just decided I didn’t care.”
“Get out of the water, Lola.” His eyes were much more gold now. “This is the last time I will repeat
I let myself get a good look at him in that moment. His black t-shirt clung to every dip of his muscles,
while his biceps struggled to break free of the material.
“If you want me out, you’re gonna have to come and get me.” I shrugged. There was no way he’d come
in here and pull me out. He’d probably just storm away and confront me later on. How many threats
would he give me until he actually did something?
I nearly choked on the air in my lungs when he sauntered forward, stepping into the water as if it hadn’t
I was thankful my bre*sts and torso were submerged, the only thing visible was my neck and face.
“Don’t you dare.” I warned him, letting myself drift backwards and away from him.
He cut through the water as if it hadn’t been there. I let out an angry wail as he grabbed me roughly
and threw me over his shoulder.
“Let me down, now!” I yelled at him, letting my fists pound his stupid, chiseled back. Anger bubbled in
my veins as he walked through the water with me over his shoulder. What reason did he have to follow
me and torment me?
Alpha Asher walked through the water as if it weren’t there. I felt my bare back slam against the rough
bark of a tree, and I knew if I looked there would be tons of scratches.
I brought my arms up to cover my chest, cursing myself for not wearing a bra that provided a little more
coverage. The purple lace push-up bra I was wearing forced my bre*sts together and made them
impossible to miss.
“Do not cover yourself from me.” He growled, yanking my hands down so they were at my sides. I
glared into his golden eyes, looking for any motion within them. His eyes remained focused on my own,
not even glancing down at my chest.
“What were you doing, Lola?” He growled, my name rolling off his tongue like a seductive song.
I stammered for a response. It was hard to think when he was standing so close to me, my bre*sts
pushed against his torso as he trapped me in front of the tree.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.” I replied, trying to inch myself away from him and the tree
but he grabbed my arm and yanked me back into place. I couldn’t fight against the throbbing in
between my legs nor the sudden wetness that soaked my panties.
“Going to play dumb are we?” Maya smirked in my head.
He leaned in close enough for me to smell his breath. Water dripped from his chin, landing on my
temple and running down my cheek.
“You were making an awful lot of noise for someone who doesn’t know what I’m talking about.” He
growled and this time I couldn’t resist the urge to glance down at his lips. My pu**y throbbed again, and
I could feel the wetness coating my inner thighs.
He noticed my action and growled.
“Look at me.” He demanded, grabbing my chin with his large hand.
I peeled my eyes from his soft looking lips and stared into his golden orbs. His eyes hardened, and I
could tell he had surpassed anger. His next words were spoken with a calm voice, but his eyes held all
of the emotion he chose not to convey.
“I warned you didn’t I?” His calm voice send goosebumps forming on my skin, and I couldn’t help the
tremble that came over me.
“What are you doing!” I snapped as he forced his thigh in-between my legs. I nearly shrieked when I felt
his hand glide over my covered pu**y, sending pleasure shooting down my legs.
His voice still held that terrifying calmness, “I’m finishing what you started, Lola. I told you countless
times that you would be punished for your disobedience.” Somehow I knew it wasn’t that simple.
I tried to smack his hand away as his finger settled on my covered pu**y. His eyes blazed gold as he
roughly grabbed my wrists and pinned them against my stomach.
Any other words were caught in my throat as Alpha Asher began to rub my covered cl*t. I clamped my
lips together, fighting the moan that built in my throat. There’s no way I’d let him think I was enjoying
His golden eyes never left my own as he continued to rub my throbbing cl*t through my underwear.
I could feel the pressure in my pu**y building and I struggled to keep my composure as I neared closer
and closer to bliss.
“Please.” The word escaped my lips, I could feel my legs tremble as I neared closer to my org**m .
Alpha Asher’s voice was still calm as his eyes looked into my own, “What was that, Lola? You want me
to continue?” He lessened the pressure on my cl*t and began to move his hand away.
“Yes, please.” I couldn’t control my lips any longer.
Alpha Asher removed his hand from my soaking panties and took a step away, his blazing eyes staring
at my flushed face.
“Think of this next time you openly disobey me.” His voice was hard. I watched with trembling legs as
he picked my clothes off the ground and tossed them at me.
“And put some clothes on.” He demanded calmly as he walked away.
I waited a few minutes until I knew he was gone and slid to the ground.
“f**k.” I exhaled, wondering if I had just imagined what happened.
I wondered if he did this to every woman who disobeyed him, and I couldn’t stop the grimace that fell
over my face. Even though I told him to stop, my body acted as though it were the hottest thing in the
I sat against the rough tree in my bra and underwear. The only thing that kept me from giving into the
idea that I imagined it all, was the throbbing emanating from between my legs.
There was only one thing I was one hundred percent sure of; I was definitely going to disobey Alpha
