I stared at the message on my phone and scanned the area again. I’d
agreed to meet my new Little Wolf at the park. The agency said the mom
seemed nervous, and I could understand. Having a strange man meet with
you and your kid had to be frightening. Even though the agency vetted
everyone, I admired the woman for being cautious.
Just to be safe, I messaged the program director. She could send the
mom a picture of me and let her know I was nearby. I’d had more than one
mom freak out when I got close to their kid. Didn’t matter I was an alpha
wolf. Our special town didn’t have one pack. It had many. Only certain
wolves, like me and a few others, could handle being around other alphas
without feeling the need to fight for dominance. Which was why not just any
shifter would be permitted to move here. Each alpha had to pass a series of
tests and interviews.
I finally spotted a kid who matched the picture the agency sent. Cody
Carter. He looked small for his age. Most eight-year-old shifters were much
bigger. Even if it looked like he wouldn’t officially be eight for another week,
he still shouldn’t look so scrawny. Even rabbit shifters and deer weren’t as
fragile in appearance as this kid.
Approaching the swings, I stopped a few feet away. From the corner
of my eye, I saw a pretty blonde pop up from a nearby bench, her tense
posture alerting me to the fact this had to be her son. She hadn’t so much as
twitched until I approached the boy.
“You Cody?” I asked.
I smiled, liking how polite he was. His mother must have raised him
right. “My name is Alexander, but everyone calls me Axe. I’m with the Big
Wolf Little Wolf program.”
Cody’s eyes went wide. “Really?”
I nodded. “Yep. I thought we could get to know each other a bit
today, and maybe set up our next visit.”
The swing stopped, and Cody shifted on the seat. He cast a furtive
glance at his mother before focusing on me again. I wondered about that
quick look but maintained eye contact with the kid. Until the breeze shifted.
Every muscle in my body locked up tight, and my eyes shifted to that of my
wolf. I felt a rumbling growl build inside me as the sweetest scent filled my
nose. My mouth watered and my fangs ached. What the fuck? I’d never had
such a reaction to a simple scent before.
The sound of dry grass crunching drew my attention to Cody’s mom.
And that’s when I realized how truly fucked I was — because the tantalizing
smell was coming from Emma Carter. I breathed in deeper and realized
something was seriously wrong. These two didn’t have a drop of shifter
blood in them. In fact, they were one hundred percent human. What the hell
were they doing in Wolf Creek?
She tugged at her sleeves and crossed her arms, then dropped them to
her sides again. The way she shifted from foot to foot told me her fight-orflight response was kicking in. She might not realize I was a predator, but
something inside her could feel it. Didn’t matter, I wouldn’t hurt her. I’d
sooner cut off my paw.
