Chapter 75 - Reece-New Years Plans




   I needed to find a way to change her mind. I needed to convince her that I was wrong when I said those things before. The look on my Little Bunny's face when she ran away crushed me. I never wanted to see that look again. 

   After she left me, sitting there in the clearing, I was at a loss. I didn't know what to do. What I did know, no what I needed, was a cold shower, or a dip in the river. I needed to cool my head, and other things. 

   I only have a few days of vacation left before life gets busy again, so I want to spend as much time with her as I can. But I was going to need to keep my hands to myself or I was likely to ruin things again. I wanted my Little Bunny to know that I was serious about her. That I didn't hate her. I never did. I never could. 

   I made my way home from the clearing alone, following her scent to make sure that she went straight home. I followed her scent all the way to her door. I heard her inside, that made me feel better. I knew she was safe.

   "I'm sorry, Little Bunny." I whispered outside her door before turning to walk back to my room. 

   I was looking forward to seeing her at breakfast the next morning. I wanted to make things better between us. So, when I saw her sitting there talking with my mom when I walked in, I couldn't stop my wolf from jumping around happily at the sight of her. I smiled at his excitement and joy for our mate.

   "Good morning, sweetie." Mom said as I sat across from her, putting myself next to my scrumptious little mate. 

   "Morning, Mom." I told her. "Good morning, Little Bunny." I smiled at my timid little mate.

   "G-good morning, Reece." She stammered as she looked at me.

   "Don't tell me you guys are fighting?" Mom asked me.

   "Not at all." I denied with a smile. It was the truth, we hadn't fought at all, things were just weird between us still.

   "Hmmm." Mom didn't seem convinced.

   We ate our breakfast mostly in silence, only talking about random things when Mom got an interesting idea. Most didn't interest my Little Bunny too much, not until we were almost done eating.

   "I was talking with Gwen the other day at the store. She was telling me how all the pack females are finding it hard to get things done anymore, there is no good place to take the kids now that there is no Phi in the pack." Mom just seemed to be rambling on, but it caught Bunny's attention.

   "You know what would be a good idea." She said with a bright smile on her face. "We should have a pack daycare, at least a couple days a week, maybe not every day but enough that it gives the mothers in the pack time to do their stuff kid free."

   "That is such a thoughtful idea." Mom was smiling brightly. It really was a good idea. There used to be people in the pack that took it upon themselves to watch the pack pups and cubs, but once they got too old, no one ever stepped up to take their place.

   "We can hold it here, we would need to work things out, but I think most females would love it."

   "I think they would too, what about you, Reece, do you like the idea?" Mom asked me.

   "I think it would be a very popular idea among the pack females."

   "So, you don't like the idea." My Little Bunny looked crushed.

   "I never said that. I think it is a good idea, and that the pack mothers would like the idea." I backpedaled.

   "Then you should have said you liked it the first time you were asked. I swear, men never know how to answer a single question." Mom reprimanded me.

   "But I was giving my approval, I said it sounded like something the females would like. I didn't say it was a bad idea."

   "But you didn't say it was a good idea, no one will understand you if you don't say it."

   "Fine." Little Bunny chose that moment to laugh, her bright smile and crinkled eyes showed how funny she thought this situation was. "Are you laughing at me?" I asked her.

   "N-no." She stammered as she tried to stifle the laughter, but it was no use, she laughed even harder.

   "You are, you're laughing at me."

   "I can't help it, you're being told off like a little kid. It's funny."

   "I'll show you a little kid." I growled suggestively. She gasped and stopped laughing at once. The look of shock on her face made me laugh in her place. "I'm kidding."

   "Jerk." She snapped at me, but I saw the smile on her face.

   "Fine, I'll admit it, I'm a jerk. I just can't help playing with my Little Bunny." I wiggled my eyebrows at her, both her and mom laughed at that. It was a fun end to our breakfast.

   Tomorrow was New Year's Eve, and there was only one place I wanted to spend it. Beside my mate. Wherever that might be. I was hoping she would agree to spending the evening with me, if I promised to be a good boy and keep my hands to myself. I could always fantasize and hope for later, I'd get no where if I didn't start getting her used to the idea of us being together. But just the sight of her, the smell of her, was enough to drive my wolf crazy with need. I had to keep him firmly under control for a little while longer. I could hear him whining at me when I thought those words.

   I found my Little Bunny in the music room around lunch that day. I heard her playing the violin that Mom had given her for Christmas. The music was soft and sweet. She had been taught well, she played like a professional. I would expect nothing less of her with how her Grandfather had decided to raise her.
