(Song: “Fire and Fire” by Sam Smith) Jaxon’s POV “Ahh, Jaxon,” Kaylee screams as I bury myself inside of her. She digs her nails into my back, whimpering as I pound into her mercilessly. Melanie, I moan in my head. I imagine her perfect body wrapped around mine. Her beautiful, violet eyes gazing up at me as I make her see Goddess. Her soft, plump lips parting as she screams my name to the heavens. I can’t help but think about my encounter with her at the diner. No matter how much she claims to hate me, she wanted me. I could smell how soaked she was when I pinned her against the wall. As I feel my balls start to tighten, I pull out and stroke my d**k above Kaylee’s tanned stomach until the hot liquid shoots out. She looks up at me with hooded, satisfied eyes. “Wow Jaxon, that was amazing,” she whispers. “Yeah,” I mumble, getting up from the bed, and tossing Kaylee’s clothes on the rumpled sheets. I quickly pull on a gray t-shirt and navy-blue jeans, while she continues to lay there naked. “Jaxon, you don’t want to cuddle?” she asks with a pout, her eyes following my movements. I shake my head. “No. I have to go to the Academy today.” She sits up, clapping her hands together excitedly. “Oh yeah, tonight Alpha Damon is announcing that you’re going to be Alpha, right?” I nod. The final day at the Academy is usually low-key. We won’t be doing much but a bit of training and saying our goodbyes to one another. But tonight is the big reveal. Alpha Damon will announce to the entire pack that he’s picking me over his own daughter to be the next Alpha. The thought makes my stomach twist. How will Melanie react? Will she make a big scene in front of everyone? Ever since we were kids, I’ve had a crush on her, but her dad f****d that up by pitting us against each other. He knew that she wanted the title, and honestly, she deserves it. The Alpha blood running through her veins makes her a little firecracker. She’s fast, strong, and a good leader when she isn’t being too cocky. It’s extremely sexy watching her train. She can take down a full-grown man without even breaking a sweat. Even I’ve been on the receiving end of her strength. Whenever I went easy on her, she’d get pissed and force me to redo the fight, even if that meant holding her down until she tapped out. It’s one of the things I admire most about her: she doesn’t half-ass anything. I drop Kaylee off at her parents’ house before heading to the Academy, my mind occupied with thoughts of Melanie. As I turn into the parking lot, I can’t help but smirk when I see her red 2018 Honda Accord sitting in the front row, her usual spot. She is always at least thirty minutes early to warm up before everyone else. I park my car next to hers and walk inside. As I walk into the training hall, I catch her in action, mind-combat with a training dummy. She’s wearing a black sports bra and shorts that make her toned figure look so good. I try not to stare at her perfectly round ass as I walk past. She crouches down to attack the dummy again. Her movements are fluid, but I notice a slight misstep in her form. If she were fighting a real opponent, she could get hurt or worse…killed. I could just keep walking and mind my own business, but I’m the future Alpha. I should be helping my warriors strive to be the best, right? I quietly approach her from behind, getting a whiff of rose and vanilla. My wolf, Shadow, purrs at the familiar fragrance. When I get close enough, I place my hands gently on her hips, intending to correct her stance. “You need to work on your form,” I suggest softly. But as soon as I touch her, she jumps back as if my hands are on fire. The contact sends tingles shooting up my arm, but I don’t know if it’s just me or if she could feel it too. “Don’t touch me, Jaxon!” she hisses, her voice sharp and defiant. She pushes her long, ash-brown hair out of her face. I love it when she wears her hair down; it frames her face perfectly. She’s sexy as f**k when she’s pissed off —fierce, untamed, like a volcano about to erupt. “I’m just trying to help,” I mutter, raising my hand in a defensive gesture. I back away a step to give her space, knowing better not to push her. She’s already pissed about the whole Alpha thing, She scoffs. “Well don’t.” She rolls those beautiful, violet eyes and it only makes me want to bend her over and punish her. She really does need someone to f**k this bad attitude out of her. “You know what, since it’s our last day, let’s spar,” I suggest eagerly. “I know how much you love being pinned underneath me.” She narrows her eyes at me, emitting a low growl. Without a word, she sinks into a crouch, her body taut and ready to strike. We begin to circle each other, moving with a fluid rhythm that feels almost like a dance. She smirks, bouncing back and forth on her heels, her long hair flowing with each movement. “C’mon, Jaxon. What are you waiting for?” she taunts, motioning for me to come at her. I don’t hesitate. I launch myself toward her, but she’s quick, dodging my attack with lightning speed. “Gotta be faster than that,” she teases, her smirk widening as she glances over her shoulder at me. I growl. She’s currently a bit too cocky for my liking. I lunge at her again, and she dodges the same way as before. Since I anticipated this, I swiftly grab her by the waist and knock her down on the mat. Her eyes blaze as she scrambles to get up, but I use my weight to trap her, pressing her back into the soft, rubbery surface. Her body writhes beneath me as I grab her hands and pin them above her head. The heat from her skin seeps into mine, and her scent fills my senses. I lean down, whispering in her ear, “Tap out, baby girl.” “Negative,” she hisses, her eyes darkening to an eggplant purple. Her legs move with sudden agility, trying to wrap around mine to flip us over. She’s strong, but not strong enough to shift our position. I brace myself, keeping her pinned beneath me. I smirk as she continues her escape attempt, little grunts escaping from her mouth. I’m about to let her go before the smell of her arousal hits my nose. Shadow starts going crazy; he wants nothing more than for me to bury myself inside of her. I swiftly position myself so that she can’t feel my erection. Melanie and I lock eyes, and it’s as if the entire room fades away, leaving just us and the crackling tension I’ve never felt before. Before I can gather the courage to speak, a powerful aura sweeps into the room. Alpha Damon. I scramble to my feet and help Melanie up, joining the others as they bow their heads in respect. I notice everyone is doing it besides Melanie, whose eyes flash gold at the sight of her dad. As Alpha Damon approaches us, Mel begins to walk in the opposite direction, but his furious growl freezes her in place. “Mel, I didn’t dismiss you.” There’s a warning in his voice that I’m all too familiar with. Relutantly, she stands beside me, her face hard as a rock. “As you already know, since today marks your final day in the Academy, I will be announcing Jaxon as the new Alpha to the pack tonight.” He declares, shooting a cold glare towards his daughter. “I hope everything goes smoothly.” She folds her arms, retorting, “What is that supposed to mean?” “I mean I don’t want you ruining Jaxon’s big moment just because you act infantile when you don’t get your way.” He steps forward until his huge form is towering over her. Any other wolf would be cowering in fear and shitting their pants, but she doesn’t back down. She scoffs. “Don’t worry, Dad. I would never want to embarrass your golden child,” she spits with venom. I don’t want to be in the middle of this s**t, but I quickly realize I AM the middle of it, thanks to Alpha Damon. His face darkens, the wrinkles in his forehead deepening across his forehead. “Stop acting like a f*****g brat, Melanie! I told you why I didn’t choose you,” he snaps through clenched teeth. “Yeah, because you were never going to,” she retorts bitterly. “I don’t even know why I thought I could change your mind.” “You’re so stubborn, ungrateful, and downright disrespectful. The Alpha male who becomes your mate will surely reject you on the spot,” Alpha Damon spits back. They glare at each other, standing only inches apart. The fury radiates from them, the tension in the room like a live wire. “Take that back now,” she growls, her voice low and deadly. “You are my biggest disappointment, Melanie. I’m just glad I found someone like Jaxon…someone who is worthy of being Alpha.” I can’t even wrap my head around how he can talk to his own daughter like this, but I also know the man before me. Even with two daughters, he’s not a gentle, loving father you’d expect him to be. It’s also making me uncomfortable that they keep mentioning my name as if I’m not standing right here. “f**k you, dad!” she shouts, her voice bouncing off the wall. Then she turns around and walks out of the building, flipping him off. I don’t know why, but watching her stand up to her dad, even though he’s the strongest werewolf in the room, gets my heart racing and blood pumping. And not just in my heart. What the f**k is wrong with me?
