8. Chapter 8:
I reached the pack house and made my way to Dylans room. I needed to speak to him as I needed his help to get out of the pack house so that I could go to the high council.
I knocked on his door quietly and heard shuffling of clothes and then heard something break. What the hell?
"Dylan? Are you alright?" I asked softly and pushed the door open. I gasped as I caught sight of a naked body on the bed and turned my back on them.
"What the hell Dylan?" I growled as I watched the door. The sight of my brother half naked with another naked person on the bed. God! I could feel the image being burned into my mind forever.
I heard Dylan clear his throat and I turned around, peaking through my fingers and let out a breath of relief.
"God! Dylan, you freaked me out for a minute. Don't you think you are a little too young to be playing with girls?" I growled angrily as I turned to look at the girl on the bed.
I froze and my mouth dropped open in shock as I looked at the person on the bed, not a girl but a guy!
I turned to look back at Dylan and he looked down at the floor, not being able to meet my eyes. I cleared my throat as Dylan looked up at me.
"Dylan, do you mind explaining....this?" I asked quietly and I saw his cheeks turn deep red and I chuckled lightly as I never could have imagined Dylan blushing.
"Nat...this is my mate Cole" Dylan spoke up softly and I smiled widly and skipped towards Cole and pulled him into a tight hug. I heard Dylan growl from behind me and let go of Cole. I looked at Cole properly, trying to study his features. But, with Dylan growling on top of my head it was really difficult.
"Cut it out will you? I am just trying to see your mate properly" I snapped and Dylan blushed and looked away. I turned my attention back to Cole and I noticed him looking at Dylan with a love sick expression. He had bright blue eyes and jet black hair and from what I could gather he was bigger then Dylan.
"Welcome to the family" I said smiling. I was happy that Dylan was able to meet his mate and that they had accepted each other. I didn't care about the fact that Dylan was gay but all that matters is that he is happy.
Cole smiled at me widely and pulled away from me, making his way towars Dylan. He pulled him for a hug and kissed him lighty on the cheek.
"Not infront of my sister" Dylan whispered embaressed as he tried to pull away but Cole just laughed and kissed him harder.
"As much as I love seeing my brother in love, I really need need to speak to him. So, can you guys control your urges?" I said clearing my throat and Cole pulled away and nodded.
"I guess I will see you tomorrow. Bye, I love you" Cole whispered as he kissed Dylan once again.
"I love you too" Dylan spoke up and Cole turned around and walked away. I looked at Dylan and grinned widely, making him growl at me playfully.
"Stop it!" He growled and I laughed louder. I pulled Dylan towards the couch. I don't think I would be able to sit on the bed where Dylan had his....ummm.....way with Cole.
"So, how did you guys meet?" I asked as I sat down and turned to look at him. Dylan blushed once again and I shook my head amused.
"At school, he belongs to Caroline's pack" Dylan muttered and I smiled feeling happy for him. I was glad that Dylan was able to meet his mate at last.
"You wanted to talk about something? What is it?" Dylan asked and I sighed and felt my happy mood slowly slipping away.
"I need to find a way to meet the high council. There are some inportant things I need to discuss. You need to get me to meet them. I need to get out of here" I spoke up and Dylan shook his head and stood up from the couch.
He turned his back to me and closed his eyes, trying to think as if.
"Is there a way?" I asked softly and Dylan turned and looked at me with a thoughtfull expression.
"You will need Mate's permission. He being the Alpha is the only person though whom you can go up to the high council. He has to find your request worthy enough" Dylan spoke up and I bit my lip. There was no way that I could tell Mate about my reasons.
"Isn't there any other way?" I asked softly and then Dylan looked at me and shook his head.
"Not that I know of but I can try and find out. Cole is the Beta of Caroline's pack and I think he will will be able to get some info for me" Dylan spoke up and I saw love sick expression at the mention of Cole.
"How old is Cole?" I asked angrily. Even though Dylan was a few months younger to me and we were both 15, being the Beta of Caroline's pack meant that he had to be 18 or older.
"He is 19 years old" Dylan said wincing and I growled at him and hit him on the head. Why hadn't I realized? Cole had looked way bigger than Dylan. Dylan was just a kid in front of him.
"Are you trying to tell me that you both did it....? OMG Dylan, you aren't even 16 yet. You are young!" I said angrily and Dylan caught hold of my hands and stopped me from hitting him again.
"Calm down Nat. We haven't done it. What you just saw was both of us marking eachother. Cole wants to wait till I am a bit older. He hasn't forced me into it" Dylan said in a soothing voice and I calmed down taking a deep breath. I sniffed the air a bit and felt a bit foolish at shouting at him.
"I am sorry Dylan, I was just worried" I spoke up lamely as Dylan wrapped his arms around me and hugged me. Even though he was supposed to be the younger one, Dylan was way taller and lets be honest he is more built.
"It's ok sis, I understand your conern" Dylan said grinning and I felt myself relaxing. I suddenly realized that all this time I had been in his room. What if someone saw?
"I should get going, before anyone comes. I hugged him and hurried out of the room and closes the door behind me.
Tiptoeing towards my room, I closed the door behind me and got ready to go out. It wasn't like I wasn't aloud to go out.
Stepping out of the pack house, I made my way towards the park. I knew that the kids wouldn't be here for another hour.
I smiled as I reached the park and made my way towards one of the swings. I took a deep breath as I felt the wind fly through my hair.
"I didn't expect to see you here" a voice spoke up and I opened my eyes and gasped in shock as I saw Jaxon standing there.
"You shouldn't be here. This is Mates territory" I growled as I caught hold of his arm and pulled his towards the borders of the territory. I froze as I saw Mate and Nichole standing near the border with Jacob and a few other pack members.
Mate stiffened and turned to look in our direction and I heard him growl loudly. Jaxon raised his hand and surrendered but then quickly wrapped one of them around my waist and pulled me towards Mate.
"I had permission to enter" Jaxon spoke up and I looked at him confused. Then why would Mate growl at him?
"No you don't. I didn't give you permission" Mate said snarling and my head lowered on its own at the anger in his voice. Anyone who would face an Alpha would be on their knees but Jaxon was an Alpha also, so it didn't affect him.
"My mate belongs to your pack. So, I had the permission to enter" Jaxon spoke up and I remembered our pack elders telling us something a out this as kids. If an Alpha of another pack had his mate that belongs to another pack, he directly had permission to enter the pack territories to meet her or him. This rule applied to all werewolves so Mate couldn't attack him at any basis at this moment.
"Mate? Who is your mate?" Mate asked raising his eyebrow and my breath got caught in my throat. Shit! Jaxon couldn't tell him that I was his mate. It would spoil everything. Mate would kill me for lying to him.
"She is right here" Jaxon said smiling and I heard Nichole purr in the back of her throat. I looked at her confused but she seemed to be looking at Jaxon, as if enamoured by his presence.
"Who is it?" Mate asked loosing his patience and his eyes snapped towards mine. I gulped and tried to keep looking at him without giving the truth away.
"Natalie" Jaxon spoke up and I heard Nichole and Mate growl at the same time. Ok! Seriously what the hell is going on?
"She can't be your mate" Mate growled as he stalked towards me and caught hold of my hand and pulled me towards him.
Jaxon growled as soon as I was pulled away and he caught hold of my hand.
"Stop man handling her Mate. You don't want a war and isn't your girl friend standing just besides you?" Jaxon asked with a raised eyebrow and Mate growled at him but let me go.
"What is wrong with you?" I hissed as Jaxon wrapped his arms around me and pulled me towards him. He looked at me shocked but then just turned and looked at Mate.
"I am claiming Natalie as mine. I want her to join my pack" Jaxon spoke up and I turned to look at him surprised. I hadn't given him the right to claim me yet.
"Do you accept the claim? NATALIE, Do you accept the claim?" Mate asked growling and I turned towards him and shook my head.
"No, I don't." I spoke up and pulled away from Jaxon and stood in between both of them. Why was it that my life had to suck so much?
"There is your answer Jaxon. She doesn't accept your claim. Leave now" Mate said and I looked up at Jaxon.
" I told you I needed time. You just had to spoil everything." I said angrily and turned around. But before I could walk away, Jaxon wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me towards him.
"I am dying Nat, I don't have much time. I need to claim you as my mate or I will die and so will my entire pack" Jaxon muttered and I froze and turned towards him. He had to be joking. This had to be some kind of a sick joke.
"What?" I asked him softly and he looked at me with pained eyes.
"I am not lying Nat. Please, let me explain" Jaxon whispered and held out his hand. I looked up and noticed Mate looking at me with a blank expression and I sighed and put my arm around Jaxon.
"She will be back before night" Jaxon muttered and pulled me towards his territory, leaving Mate standing behind me.
