Cassies P.O.V

I get an urgent call from Echo saying that he needs me to meet at his place as soon as possible. He asks me to dress in something formal, so I go to my closet and start searching, I find my light blue lace dress with a dark brown ribbon and put it on. Yay! Ill get to see Lupin! I look in the mirror to make sure I look alright before I leave my room.

”You look nice, darling, ” my mom says when I walk into the kitchen. ”Are you going on a date? ”

”Just a meeting mom, ” I laugh at her frown.

”Well, be careful. ” I give her a hug and then head over to Echo and Angies house.

I can see Jaxons black ford in the driveway. Whew, I feel relief that I won be the first one there. I wonder what this meeting is about. I enter the door and immediately ask, ”Do you know what this meeting is about? ” Jaxon just shakes his head. I sit on the couch just as Lupin emerges dressed in black and white, it suits him really well.

When he gets to the bottom stair he looks at me, my dress. ”You look nice, ” he says. I get all flustered and thank him. He comes and sits next to me. He smells incredible! I just want to pull him to me and smell his hair and get his sent all over me. I want to smell it forever. Echo comes down next, in his royal blue, but I can clearly see how nervous he is. Axl and his mate arrive, I feel a little envious about how they can love each other up. Keep cool, think if Lupin when hes older and all yours I tell myself to keep from letting it slip. Ang is the last one down, she looks gorgeous, I laugh about how she teases Echo.

Echo paces and counts us, I can hear motorcycles in the distance… oh god! Its them! I start to feel uncomfortable as the sound gets closer until its roaring just outside. I can hear voice, Akantha and her mates. Lupin moves and I tell him not to.

Echo lets them in, he stutters. They are completely disrespectful towards Echo and make fun of him for being human. I keep my eyes down, biting my lip trying not to draw attention to myself. Slowly getting angry with how Akantha talks to Echo and Angie.

Akantha gets my attention when she says ”I came to meet the boy. ”

I watch her as she comes closer to Lupin. I boil, how dare she get that close to him! How dare she call him hun! Get ahold of yourself, I inhale a large amount Lupins scent and immediately feel calmer. She introduces herself and her mates to Lupin. I can physically feel how uncomfortable Lupin is. I wish there was something I could do about it. Akantha turns into her wolf, engulfing is in a dark glow, she doesn notice me start to shake as she shows off. Hes mine bitch! I growl as she gets closer to Lupin and slips something in his hand.

I can hear what she says, but she stands in a seductive way in front of Lupin, but he clamps his eyes shut. Good boy! I glare at Akantha breasts being too close to Lupin.

I feel relief when they leave and without thinking I pull Lupin to me. ”Lupin, you can open your eyes. Poor boy. ” I pat his head. He pushes back, I feel slightly sad.

”Im fine! I want to kill her! ” Me too!

Echo and Jaxon explain that its easier said than done. ”Mates? She has more than one? ” I nod. ”How? ” Lupin asks.

”Some wolves just have more than one and others don have one, ” I whisper, repulsed at the idea of having more than one.

Axl then proceeds to tell Lupin about how its not very common to have more than one or fewer mates. Echo, gets a gloomy look on his face and I wonder why. Then he changes the subject to Echo and Angies bedroom issues.

Echo tells him without sounding awkward about it at all. Jaxon leaves a few moments later claiming to be hungry, followed by Axl and his girl. I stay there, sitting with Lupin while I watch Echo pace the last of his nerves out on the floor.

I pull Lupin back into a hug, this time he doesn try to get out of it. I smile to myself, then I notice him staring at my face.

”Have you found your mate? ” He asks me.

Oh god! Ive got to lie! ”Nope, ” I say popping the p. I only pop ps when Im lying… I hope no one notices.

”How will you know you find them? ” He asks. I can see the amount of curiosity radiating from his eyes.

”Well… ” I pause, trying to remember what my mom told me over the fuzzy warm feeling growing in the pit of my stomach, ”Im not sure Im the best person to be asking to explain it. ” I let out a sigh trying to make myself sound more convincing. ”But Ill try my best to explain it. First of all, you have to look your mate directly in the eye, and then you will get this fuzzy warm feeling. Plus some other things, but you
e too young to know about those right now. ” I blush as Lupin is looking me in the eye making me feel all these things right now. ”Thats what my mom told me anyways, ” I add in, half truthful, but only to cover my ass.

”Don forget the scent. ” Echo adds as he stops pacing. ”You will be able to smell them and it will be the most lovely thing you will ever smell. It makes you will feel like you can get enough of it. ” I know I think to myself. I take a small sniff of his hair trying not to be too creepy.

I feel the blush go a deeper darker red than before. ”Oh yeah… I forgot. ” Echo looks at me with a raised eyebrow. Crap! They are onto me!

”How can you forget something as important as that? ” Angie asks making her presence known.

”I don know, ” I say sheepishly as I look around the room.

”Why don you stay for dinner Cassie? ” Angie asks with a smug look on her face. ”It would be nice to have some help and the boys could go out. ” She gives Eco the look.

”Oh yeah, I can take Lupin out and teach him some cool moves, ” Echo says confirming he gets Angies hint.

”We should get started, it is getting close to five, and what I want to make takes at least an hour to cook, ” Angie smiles, motioning me to follow her to the kitchen. I let go of Lupin and follows her, still blushing very darkly.

”Come on. ” Echo walks to the glass door behind the table. I watch as they go out into the yard.

”So tell me, Cassie, ” Angie states while chopping onions, ”whats up with you? Getting all blushy, forgetting the scent. ” I glance nervously out the window at Lupin and Echo, then stare at Angie.

”Nothing… I-I Er…. ” I say trying to quickly come up with an excuse. Angie laughs.

”Come on! ” She teases, ”I won tell anyone! ”

”Youll tell Echo… ” I stare at my feet as I turn red as a tomato.

”If you don tell me, Ill find out, ” Angie points the knife at me. ”I always do. ”

I bite my lip and Ang laughs. ”Ill tell you after dinner. ” I give a small smile still very red in the cheeks. Then we return back to preparing dinner.

”Boys! Dinner is ready! ” Angie yells from the window.

Lupin sits next to Me and Angie, and Echo sits on his left. I watch Lupin eat seconds. I giggle at the thought that he must be really hungry from all the practice. I smile at how cute he is being proud of standing his ground against Echo.

He waits for everyone to finish eating before Lupin excuses himself from the table to go take a shower and then go to bed because Hes exhausted.

”Okay, ” I murmur. ”Ill tell you now. ” I had used all of the dinner to prepare how I am going to tell them. ”I noticed it before, but it wasn strong… at the dinner a couple of months ago… I thought it was nothing and brushed it off. ” I pick up the fork and starts twisting it around in my hands. ”Then the next time I saw him after he had shifted, I could feel it super strong, ever since then, Ive been fighting the feelings… hes so young… ” I bite my lip.

”Go on, ” Angie grins.

”Im Lupins mate, ” I whisper so quietly that Im barely hearable. ”I don want him to know, I want him to find out when hes of age! ” I blurt out. I want him to experience finding me.

”Our lips are sealed. ” Echo pretends to zip his mouth, then breaks out in a huge grin. ”Congratulations Cass! ” Then he gets a stern look on his face. ”You
e going to have to wait for five years… are you sure you can handle that? ”

”I don know. ” I put my face in my hands. ”But Ill try. ”

”Its getting late. ” Angie looks at the time. ”Youd better go, your parents might start getting worried about you. ”

”Thank you! ” I say politely as I get up to leave. Its a bit chilly outside so I run back to my house, when I get there, my parents have already gone to bed.

I wake up bright and early in the morning. I quickly find out that I am at the first up in the house so I watch tv in my underwear until I hear a door open and shut (Angies room). I run up to my room and quickly and slip into a dark pair of jeans and the moon shirt. I meet Angie at my door as she leaves the bedroom. ”Good Morning! ” I say with a grin.

”You
e up early. ” Angie laughs. We walk downstairs together, ”doesn have anything to do with training does it? ” I get a huge smile.

”I was so excited that I couldn go back to sleep. ”

”Just no shifting, ” Angie points at me with a serious finger, though her face isn so serious.

”Yeah, yeah. I know what Echo said. ” I roll my eyes. I have Echos stance down now, as long as I can keep that I won be knocked down at least.

”Just don forget that stance Echo taught you. ” Angie reminds me.

Training classes don start till after lunch so I have a while to wait. I watch tv, Angie brings two plates in from the kitchen and joins me on the couch. After I finish my French Toast, I take mine and Angies plates to the kitchen. Theres another plate on the counter for Echo, but it will probably get cold before he gets up. (Angie and Echo had a very late night, but I couldn hear them over my dreams of friends). We spend pretty much the whole morning watching cartoons. Echo finally wakes up at noon to join us in eating ham sandwiches (because they are easy and quick to make). After I finish my sandwich, I semi-ly bolt out of the door, not wanting to be late for my first group training.

As I walk towards the open field, I spot some of the kids from the class standing in an open doorway talking to their parents. A couple are already entering the field. Once Im on the field I spot Jaxon talking with another person, a female (his trainee instructor). He looks up at me, waving when he sees me, then turns back to the conversation he is having with the girl.

”Alright, class! ” Jaxon tells, getting everyones attention once everyone is there. ”We have a new student joining us, ” he winks at me, ”Lupin. ”

The biggest kid here walks over to me, ”Hello there, ” He holds his hand out to shake my hand and I take it. The kid gets a big grin on his face. ”Good luck newbie, ” He walks back toward his group of friends. I know from watching them from the window, that he is really good at fighting, everyone who hes paired up with ends up in a heap on the ground.

”Today we will just be continuing on what we started last time, ” Jaxon says, over the heads of everyone. Him and his assistant start putting people in groups of two. I am the last person to be paired with anyone, ”Start, ” Jaxon tells the class then turns to face me and the girl. ”Okay, So here is what we are doing… ” and he explains to me what we are supposed to be doing.

I get into the stance Echo taught me, the girl eyes my stance. ”Nice. ” She mouths to me. Clearly, she had not expected me to know it. We begin to practice, she hits me, I lose my balance from the unexpected strength of the blow. Then I go to tackle her down, but she dodges and I fall on the ground. She offers me a hand as I get up.

”Not bad, ” She tells me with a grin. ”But youll have to be faster than that. ” She strikes me again on my shoulder over the bruise Echo gave me. I don fall, I take the full blast of the hit, then I lunge again and get her pinned to the ground. Her eyes go huge (she didn think I would get her to the ground).

”Good job Lupin, ” Jaxon says above us. ”Youve gotten better since yesterday. ” I get up and help the girl up.

”Im Harley, ” She tells me while brushing the dirt off her pants. ”You
e pretty good, I didn think you would get me off my feet. ”

”I didn hurt you did I? ” I ask feeling a little guilty.

”Its all good, ” she laughs. ”Its what we are supposed to be doing you know. Its going to hurt a bit. ”

Practice carries on like this for an hour, then Jaxon hands out water bottles and we take a break. Harley goes back over to her friends, I can hear them tease her about being pinned to the ground, but she just laughs it off. The boy from before comes over with his friends and they sit with me.

”Names, Vincent, by the way. ” He grins at me as he sits next to me on the grass. ”These are my buds, ” he points to each of his friends as they too sit down. ”Elijah, Mason, and Rollo. ” They each shake my hand. Vincent is the toughest muscular guy in the group. He has chestnut brown hair and vibrant green eyes. Elijah is small, built like me. He has curly short black hair. Rollo has a very chiseled body build, baby blue eyes, and dirty blond hair. Mason is medium compared to Vincent and Elijah. His hair is short and very light blonde (but not albino), and dark brown chocolate eyes.

”Want to be friends? ” Vincent asks with a mouth full of food.

”Sure! ” I smile. Vincent gets a victorious grin on his face. I watch as they all trade snacks and joke.

Jaxon calls ”Breaks over! Time to get practicing again. ” The guys get up leaving me alone until Harley joins me again.

The practice sessions goes by successfully, by the end everyone is sweaty and hot. I walk back to the house surrounded by Vincent and his buds. I laugh at their jokes. They slap a hand over each others backs as they part and go back to their houses to shower. I have a huge grin on my face as I walk in. Angie and Echos clothes are scattered all around the floor leading up the staircase (I don want to know what they are doing). I go up and run passes the cracked door and immediately into the bathroom where I take a nice hot shower.
