Chapter 87 - Trinity-Even More Visitors
I had just sat down to read a book until lunch when I heard a knock at the door. I was really letting myself get distracted today.
"Come in." I said.
"Hey." Juniper called as she opened the door.
"Hey Juniper, what are you doing here?" I asked her, confused.
"Well, I tried calling you, but you didn't answer." She giggled. "But I know you can't go anywhere so I figured you would be here." She sat on the sofa next to me.
"Yeah, you probably called while I was taking a shower." I told her. "I missed you." I said leaning over to hug her. The motion caused a sharp pain, making me wince.
"Trin, what's wrong?" Juniper asked me.
"Don't worry about it." I laughed. I did not need another person interrogating me until they found out what I did.
"You got hurt again? But you've been at the estate this whole time, right? You haven't left." She sounded scared.
"Well, technically, Reece and I went a short distance away into the trees for our date on the night of the full moon. But there were enough wolves nearby that it wasn't an issue."
"So, if you didn't get hurt there, then what happened?"
"Nothing, Juniper, I didn't get hurt." I glared at her, trying to get her to understand without me needing to say anything.
"But-." She looked at me, unable to finish. She just stared at me, studying me for a moment, taking in everything that she saw. I watched as she took a quick sniff of the room as well, a deeper scenting than she had already done. I watched as her eyes went wide and a huge grin spread across her face.
"OH MY GODDESS!" She yelled. "Trinity, oh my Goddess. Why didn't you say anything?" I blushed again.
"Why is it everyone who comes into my room can figure it out?" I asked of no one in particular.
"What do you mean?"
"Lila did the same thing. She thought I was hurt, I was in more pain then though, and she thought Reece had actually hurt me before she realized what really happened." I put my face into the book to hide my embarrassment. "Today has been one mortifying event after another." I told her.
"Girl, you should be happy. This is big." She was grinning excitedly. "When did things get so much better between you two?"
"We've been talking more, fighting less. We've talked a lot of things out and got to know each other. He also told me he never rejected me, he just wanted to keep me at bay to protect us both." She looked at me confused when she heard that last part. "Yeah, it was a long story." I laughed. "But things have gotten better. Plus, there's the mate bond that's been drawing me to him, making me fall in love with him more and more each day whether I wanted to or not."
"Yeah, that mate bond stuff is some serious business." She smiled, no doubt remembering her own bonding experience. "So." She said suggestively while wiggling her eyebrows at me.
"So, what?" I asked her.
"So, how was it?" She grinned. "Come on, you've got to tell me. And you promised to tell me all about Reece's pieces, remember." She stuck the tip of her tongue out and bit it playfully. "Come on, Trin, give me some details here."
"I don't know what to say, it wasn't planned, it just, sort of happened."
"So, he basically jumped your bones?" She asked me, laughing.
"No, well, not really." She looked confused now. "I kind of started it." Her eyes went wide as dinner plates.
"Oh my Goddess, Trinity, you need to tell me everything." She demanded.
I did as she asked and told her every detail I could remember from the night before. Her face was red, and so was mine.
"Oh my." She was fanning her face. "You certainly lucked out in that department." She laughed. "I mean, Paul isn't bad, trust me he's great, but if he was anything like the Alpha, I think I might have already died from exhaustion." She cackled.
"I think I might." I laughed with her.
"So, how was it?"
"How was what? Being with him?" I asked, confused.
"No, it." She said, being evasive. "His pieces. You haven't told me all about Reece's pieces yet. You've only told me what you were doing with those pieces all night."
"I think it was more what those pieces were doing to me. I was definitely not the one in control."
"I don't care who was in control, I want to know details, dimensions. How was it, was he huge? How does he look naked? Does he look as good as I imagine?"
"JUNIPER!" I snapped at her. "You're married."
"So, I'm not looking, I'm asking for information for educational purposes."
"You mean imaginational purposes. You just want a good mental image."
"So, as long as it's just in my head it doesn't matter."
"No, I'm not. And I love Paul with all of my heart, that will never change, but come on girl, we've all been dying to know about the Alpha for years." I laughed at her, shaking my head in disbelief. "Trinity?" She pleaded one last time.
"He's hot as hell." I finally answered. "I don't think there's an ounce of fat on that man's body. He is all muscle and sex, and more muscle or more sex. I don't know which. He's amazing."
"What about size, how was it?"
"I didn't look directly at it, by the time he got himself fully undressed I was a little dazed, but it definitely felt very, uh, large." I struggled to get those words out and Juniper cackled at my embarrassment.
"Trinity, you've definitely got your 'hands' full, don't you?" We both laughed at that, even though my face was on fire.
I spent the afternoon with Juniper. She stayed for lunch and kept me company until it was almost dinner, but she had to get back home. Before she left though, I gave her a warning.
"Juniper, don't tell anyone about this." I said sternly through clenched teeth. I didn't want to be embarrassed the next time I saw the guys.
"Don't worry, Trin, no need to make it an order, girl talk stays between girls."
I was prepared to have dinner alone in my room again. I hadn't actually left my room all day and didn't plan to. But when I heard someone coming down my hall, I knew that my evening was going to be different than I had planned.
I was sitting at my table, trying to appear composed, when Reece came in. He didn't knock today. 'Is this how things are going to be from now on? He's just going to walk in without knocking now'
"Hello Reece." I said sitting up as straight in my chair as I could. I saw that he was not empty handed. "What is that?" Reece smirked.
"I thought we could have dinner together." He looked confident, and a little smug, but I couldn't help but feel a little excited that he was here. But there was also a hint of nervousness.
He was carrying a box that was filled with delicious smelling food. It smelled like comfort foods. I could smell burgers, fries, and chicken. What exactly was he planning?
"I was just planning on having dinner." I told him, letting him know that I was indeed hungry.
"Well, I gave Abigail the night off, so you would have no luck if you don't eat with me." He thought he had planned everything perfectly to force me to have dinner with him, it was kind of funny. I wanted to mess with him.
"You know, I could always go down to the kitchen and cook for myself." I smiled as I spoke the words flatly. His face fell and he faltered momentarily.
"No, but I have dinner here. We should eat together." He didn't expect me to say no and the way he responded was very cute.
"Reece, you're so adorable." I was laughing at him but he didn't seem to like that. He set the box down on the table and stalked toward me.
"You think you're funny, don't you?" He loomed over me, one hand on each of the arms of my chair as he leaned forward to bring his face closer to mine.
"Yeah, I do." I smiled happily. "Don't you think so too?" I asked him, batting my eyelashes.
"Hmmm. Funny isn't what comes to mind when I think of you." His voice rumbled into my ear as his lips moved against flesh. "Scrumptious, irresistible, unpredictable. Now those are things that come to mind when I think of you.
I hummed with pleasure as Reece pressed his lips to mine. I couldn't believe how much I had changed. How easy I was finding all this. But I really did want him, need him.
My stomach growled, loudly, right as Reece was getting into the kiss. He had just put his hand on the back of my neck to deepen it when I had to go and ruin it.
"I get the message. Dinner first, then dessert." He was smiling at me hungrily with dark passionate eyes. I used to think those eyes meant he was angry with me, but I think I had made a lot of mistakes over these last few months.
