"Can I kiss you?"
My throat closed completely at his question. He want's to kiss me? Like kiss me, kiss me? Actual kiss me? I would have kept thinking these thoughts all night. I would have if he hadn't turned me around to face him.
"Nova, can I kiss you?"
Idiot, my wolf huffed. He just smiled and brought his face just a little bit closer to mine. The only problem with that was we had been almost touching before, now our noses brushed against the others. My eyes found themselves drawn to his lips rather than his eyes for once.
"I feel like it's something I should do."
"Then why aren't you?"
"I don't know."
I started to reply but it was too late. He was already kissing me. His lips were warm and soft against my own, moving slowly and patiently. It was like we had all the time in the world.
We do, I thought. That was all I could manage to think before my mind went on overload.
His hands started to move from their place on my arms. He slid the up to my shoulders and on my neck, one stopped there while the other ventured upwards and into my hair.
I pushed myself closer to him before grasping the end of his shirt. He growled a little and moved the hand that was on my neck away. I whimpered a little but that was soon halted when he placed it on the small of my back to pull me just a little closer. My hands rested flat on his chest and he picked up the pace of the kiss, his lips crushing my own.
The movements were so fast, so exciting, so... right. It was just completely different than anything that I'd ever felt before. I wanted this. I wanted him.
I moved my hands up so that they rested on his jaw and cheeks, one curled up to run through his soft, brown strands. He let out a growl once more, that made me pull closer to him. He pushed me up against the wall, one hand venturing around my thigh to the back of my knee. He placed my leg around his hip, not removing his hand afterwards.
I pushed my chest against his and he groaned deeply, licking the seem of my lips to gain entrance. I gave it to him willingly. Our tongues collided, both searching for something that they would never find in the other's mouth. In our movements we shifted, causing me to knock a vase of flowers off a table. Tyler took this chance to change the action.
He moved his lips from my mouth to my cheek, working down to my neck with slow, tantalizing kisses. My eyelids fluttered for a second as I took in this bit of bliss, biting my lip to keep in a moan that wanted out. Then I realized something.
Right above where my mark is supposed to go.
"Tyler," I whispered. He looked up at me, eyes now completely red," It's okay. I want you to."
He stared at me for a long second before he kissed that spot deeply. Then he kissed it again. I thought he would kiss it once more but I was met with the sharp sting of his teeth sinking into my flesh. After a moment he pulled his teeth out and licked the wound gently, cleaning up the blood that had come out.
He bared his own neck to me after that, the mark only works if both parties bite. I looked at him only once before biting him, my venom and his blood mixing just as his had mixed with mine. I savored the moment, not because it felt good but because after this we would be closer to each other. Physically, emotionally and mentally.
Licking up his blood I noticed that his hands had found their way to my hips. I pulled away from his neck to stare at him, it only took him a moment to turn towards me.
"We're marked," he said quietly. I nodded.
"I'm yours now, Tyler."
"And I'm all yours."
"Now the whole world will be able to see it."
He laughed darkly before putting his forehead against my own.
"What is it?"
"A hybrid marked by an oracle," he shook his head," Who would have thought?"
I smiled and shook my head, taking up his hand in my own. I brought it up and placed it on my chest, just over my heart.
The sunlight streamed in through the window the next morning, falling perfectly on my still sleeping mate's face.
After marking each other we had kissed a bit more before going to sleep, but it's still what I would consider to be the best night of my life. I'm closer to my mate in ways that I'd never thought possible.
I looked at his handsome face again, brushing a fallen strand out of his eyes before removing his arm from my waist and standing to go to the mirror. When I stood in front of the mirror, I looked at myself for any differences.
I'm not sure what exactly I was expecting but I did see changes in myself. The girl in the mirror looked calmer, stronger and more confident. She practically glowed in the morning light, her blond hair creating a halo-effect around her frame. Then there was the mark on her neck.
It rested right where Tyler bit me, just a few inches above and back of my collar bone on my left shoulder. The black lines that now covered that area made up a howling wolf, one with particularly sharp teeth and closed eyes. It was beautiful, made of swirls and bends and lines. It wasn't simple or plain like that of others that I'd seen. Each mark is different but I'm already in love with mine.
I felt a shift in the room and turned around just in time to see Tyler stand up and get out of bed. He came over to me with a tired smile on his face, his hair messy from sleep. His bright, turquoise eyes were bright with life though as he came up to me. He brushed the hair off of my shoulder to look at my mark.
"It's beautiful," he whispered.
"It should," I replied," It's yours."
He laughed quietly before looking up to see his own in the mirror. It looked identical to mine, but it's a little higher on his shoulder, closer to his hair line while mine is nearer the bone. We both stood in silence for a while, just examining our marks.
We just stayed that way for a long, wonderful moment.
Hey, guys. I'm not even sure how many of you read this, but I just wanna say that updating was a real pick me up today. Some guys on my FFA team were making picking on me for being Wiccan and some old nicknames that my dad and uncle gave me when I was little. I don't even know why but just writing this little paragraph and clicking update make me feel so much better. That's all, see you Sunday.
