He had finally allowed her to go to sleep. Everyone had cleared out to head to a gig at the club and after a whole lot of: ‘Whatever we have is yours Alpha.’ and ‘Take what you need Alpha and don’t concern yourself.’ type sentences which made Caine extremely uncomfortable. There was no way in the world he was going to just raid someone’s house.
Anyways, he had kept her awake for as long as he could before she had told him to quit talking and just let her sleep. Oddly enough she hadn’t been able to sleep until he had crawled up behind her and wrapped her in his arms. Almost instantly she had fallen into a deep sleep. Peeking over her shoulder he noticed that she was still dead to the world. A soft grin played around his mouth. She was fucking adorable even with her face all swollen and scratched. Just adorable.
“Alana?” he whispered. She didn’t even move. Taking that as a sign he crept out from behind her and then lifting her, headed toward the bathroom.

Photobucket

He had scoped it out earlier and knew she would freak if she had to come in here without being nearly comatose. It wasn’t the worse bathroom he had ever been in but it wasn’t Alana clean. He grimaced as he looked down at her. She needed a bath. And she was going to kill him when she realized that he was the one that had given it to her.
After dumping in some bubbles from the bottle at the corner of the tub he drew the water before stripping her and placing her in. He tried to avert his eyes, really did but her breasts were like magnets and his eyed were drawn to them. He swallowed a groan and covered her up with bubbles before his eyes were drawn further south.
Grabbing a rag he hovered for a moment before scrubbing  hand over his face. Reaching down he readjusted himself before dipping the rag into the water.
“And now for the hard part,” he said in rough voice as he slowly started to bathe her. After he was finished he eyed her hair. She would want that washed too right? And maybe he should do something with her hair. He was pretty sure Ethan would have people out looking for her, armed with old photographs. Maybe…
Straightening, he rummaged in the small basket by the tub that seemed to be overflowing with hair care products. He grabbed things randomly before turning back to the tub and began squirting them on her head.

After the most excruciating hour of his life he dried her off and put her into a pair of pajamas one of the girls had left for him before heading back into the bathroom to take a shower.  A very cold shower. He briskly rubbed off then slipping into a pair of underwear walked over to the medicine cabinet and stared at his reflection.
This face, his face, was plaster all over the news. Maybe it was time for a change. Hell, he’d had this beard ever since he could grow hair. He didn’t even know what his face looked like under there. He ran a hand through his hair. It wasn’t shaggy because he was trying to make a fashion statement. It was shaggy because when he finally got irritated with it being in his face he’d just take a pair of scissors and hack away until he was satisfied.
Maybe…rummaging around under the sink he found a pack of razors. Placing one on the sink he reached out and opened up the medicine cabinet.

Photobucket

“Band-aids, tampons, cologne, perfume…a-ha! Here we go. Some shaving cream.”

Shutting the cabinet with his elbow he squirted some of the foamy contents into his palm before slathering it on his face. Taking a deep  breath he reached for the razor. He’d never done this before but it couldn’t be that hard right? He’d watched the commercials and the ladies loved a smooth shave.  Leaning closer to the mirror he took a careful swipe at the hair on his face. He eyed the spot critically. There was still hair there. He could tell this was going to be a long process.

Photobucket

Some time later Caine was finally satisfied with the way his face looked. He was sort of surprised to see some of his dad’s features staring back at him. Giving his cheek one last pat he headed out of the bathroom.

Photobucket

He slouched on the couch beside a still sleeping Alana. He could feel his own eyes getting gritty.
“I’ll just sleep for a few minutes,” he murmured before he nodded off into a dreamless slumber.

    Yeah baby! Dom just went Beyonce on his @**! Momma was not playing with him! That was awesome! But of course Ethan knew that too! I could just see him running with his tail between his legs to do exactly what she just told him to do – punk! Going backwards -I just love caine and his adorable restraint! Razz He just loves him some Alana but is such the gentleman! And what a doggone cliffhanger (no pun intended!) we didn’t get to see the changes – argh! Oh well, I’ll be right here when you get back next time with the next updates! *waits patiently for the next three for one* Alien

    LOL! Kayvon, that was hilarious! And no, Dom was NOT playing with Ethan’s stupid behind! *shakes head* Haha! I was going to show that but I couldn’t get the right angle so I just ditched it and left it up to the words! Glad to see you “saw” it!

    CAINE! <3 Grin Can you picture her face when she realizes that he bathed her? Gonna be trouble…not to mention her hair! Shock

    I’m glad you enjoyed it Kayvon! I haven’t decided yet on how I want him to look. If I want to keep what I have or not!! Hmm…

    Nice to see Dom standing up for herself — although, there’s nothing more dangerous than the mother of an endangered child. Still… she totally owned Ethan’s sorry little ass there.

    Caine? Shaving? Can’t wait to see the results Smile

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    *nods* Isn’t it though! But like you said…nothing more dangerous! LMAO! And she did! She totally did!

    LOL! Yep, yep! Should be interesting! Razz

    Way to go, Dom! *pumps fist in air* It’s about time!

    And Caine… *sighs and shakes head sadly* You don’t mess with a woman’s hair without her permission… Is he trying to get himself murdered?

    Can’t wait for the next chapter!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LoL! Yeah! Ethan was really scared of Dom in that moment. She’s never really been like that with him before! Surprise, surprise! He’s an idiot!

    LMAO!! Oh god!! I can not wait! Seriously! He thought he was doing a good deed but sometime he can be so clueless when dealing with people!

    Thanks Marie! Grin

    I think I know!!! what a certain someone… I will hush up now dont want to give up to much, LOL!

    Stunning update! Poor Caine, having to *ahem* bathe Alana and then the cold shower…. Shake it off man! and I dont think she will be to pleased to find that he had seen her completely in the buff… Although with her new senses overtaking it might not be a bad thing, LOL!

    GO DOM!!! Wow stunning descriptions I was sitting here literally laughing and rooting for her, (I am at work by the way) so my co-worker in the next cubicle kept standing and giving me funny looks. LOL! I told them of course. She certainly is one dangerous and stubborn woman, Caine best hurry unless he wants her to do it for him…

    BRAVO!!!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Hahaha!!! He doesn’t look exactly the same since…ya know! Razz

    LOL!! LOL!! Yeah…poor Caine! I think Alana is going to bash his head in once she realizes what happened…plus her hair! *cough*

    YAY Dom!!! She went from a crying woman to a freakin amazon didn’t she? She doesn’t play around when it comes to Julius! That’s her heart right there!

    Thanks Cherie! Smile

    Yayyyyyyy Dom whooped his ass!!!! It was kinda epic. In the best way possible. I kinda wanted her to continue to knock his shiznit around for a bit. He’s such a “female dog” and shes the girl to! Nice to know that behind the man the woman really is in charge.

    I’m not sure if I wanna root for Dom or not. I feel like she looks out for her own interests at all times. But how independent is she? Since she jumped to Ethans ship its clear she doesnt want to be a leader but would she try to start her own faction? Or just stick with the winning team?

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! Hahaha!! Yeah, she did. She was not having any of that! And the sad thing is Ethan didn’t even sense it coming. What kind of Alpha is that? LOL!! LOL! I had a few more scenes but I cut them since it seemed like overkill! Plus those few were crazy to get!

    Dom…I don’t know if I would trust her. She seems like she’s better suited for the life of a Rouge. You know…never picking sides unless something is in it for her then going back to the shadows…hmmm…

    You sneaky girl! Teasing us with not showing Caine sans beard! Cry But I’m sure he’s hot just the same…

    Yeah, you go Dom! It’s about time she told him who’s boss! Alien

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Nora, I couldn’t give it away so easily! Next prompt…or maybe the one after since I want to see what Julius is up to. Poor kid! I have a scene planned out…*sigh*

    LOL! Totally! Grin

  7. meralgia says:

    OMG! Alana will be pissed when she finds out wha happened. And boy, Caine really should’ve known better than to risk his life doing something like this. Alana will kill him! Especially when she sees he’d given her a new haircut. hahaha Grin! I can’t wait for the next prompt to see the new looks of the two and to see how will Caine survive once Alana awakens! Shock
    I’m glad to see Dom showing her true colours! She’s fierce! As for the kid, I don’t know why, but I keep thinking he might run into Caine for some reason… That would be a twist! Well, I’ll see. Hope he’ll be ok, and won’t run into any of the less friendly enemies of Eathans’… Wink

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! Haha!! Should be good times yes? Well, good times for everyone but Caine I’m sure! I had went in game yesterday to take shots but then I got distracted in CAS so yeah…next prompt should be in a few days!

    So true! A bit of role reversal there for those two huh? Hmm…we’ll see! I don’t know where I’m going with Julius yet! Neutral

    LOL at the bathroom not being “Alana clean”. Shock Yes she is going to be one pissed off girl when she wakes up between the condition of the bathroom and the fact that Caine gave her a bath…hehe. I can’t wait for that episode. I think it is so cute the way Caine thinks of her now. Does he realize he is in love? I’m sure he doesn’t, only that she is his mate perhaps?

    I am really liking this side of Dom! Ethan is a girly man! Rolls Eyes Great update Phoenix.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha!! I had to throw that in there! So true though! He knows her better than she thinks. Or better than HE thinks! Nope! He doesn’t think about all that soft stuff…well unless it’s Alana’s curves! Wink

    He is SO a girly man! Blah! Can’t stand him! I don’t know how he turned out that way! LOL!

    Thanks Gayl!

    Booo, Ethan is lame. He’s the George Bush of the werewolf world. I hope someone finds Julius soon. He’s probably cold and scared and hungry.

    hehehe Caine. “I’m just going to innocently give Alana a bath now. It’s nothing sexual she just needs a bath and I don’t trust her to brave this bathroom while she’s awake. I mean, it’s completely chaste. I’ll just cover her bits up with suds and turn my head while I touch her naked body. Innocently.” LOL! LOL!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LMAO!! LMAO!!!!! Hahahahaha!!! LOL George Bush of the werewolf world! Oh gosh!

    He’s all three of those things Pen! Next update should be about him. Note the should!

    Yeah dude! Caine is a hot mess! He’s freakin’ hilarious!

    whooooooo lawd! someone done opened a case of whup azz … Bout time too

    And poor Caine, someone should have explained that messing with a sista’s hair is the short route to beatdown town LMAO

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    It was SO about time! I think Dom could take him! Want to take bets? Smile

    Giiirrrllll…you know how it is! Caine is gonna get it and he’s going to be SOOOO confused!! Confused

  11. ~Drew says:

    “The ladies love a smooth shave” LOL!!! And dang you for not showing us a clean shaven Caine! Hope Alana likes the result. And how nice to see Ethan manhandled a little, he is such a jerk. Julius, hmmm. I wonder if Caine will come across him? Great update! Cool

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! I couldn’t resist Karen! I’m still kinda torn if I like the new Caine or not! LOL!

    Yeah, it was. He’s used to doing whatever he wants but Dom effectively put him in his place! And Julius…we’ll see more of him. I was drifting to sleep when I thought of the perfect storyline…

    hahahahahahhaha!!! oh Caine is soooo deep in trouble!! I have a feeling the next prompt (if it’s about them) is going to be extremely funny Razz .Poor kid, had to run away to find a way to help his mother and him put up with his dad, although I have a feeling he’ll be fine. Dom most certainly had that side in her as you mentioned in the past episodes… she just needed motivation to get it out again after so many years Grin !! Yay to Dom kicking Ethan’s ass hehehe!!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL Maria! Yeah…he is! And he’s not even going to know why! Poor guy! I think the next prompt will be about Julius. I’ve been thinking of his storyline for the last few days! I just have to do some rearranging of sets and whatnot.

    Yep! Dom took him down and wasn’t even breathing hard! Haha! Glad you enjoyed it! Smile

  13. Ning says:

    Aaah!!! How can you not show us what the note says?!?! (*takes in a deep breathe*)

    I was really shocked to see that Alana allowed Caine to even put a finger on her. I never thought she would need to feel him around her before she could fall asleep! Shock Can’t wait to see how Caine looks like after his makeover!

    Poor Dom. Frown I’m liking her more and more now.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!!! LOL!!! I didn’t figure I need to. The sad lil face said it all! Cry

    I don’t think that Alana wants to but not wanting and needing are two different things. Especially being who she is to Caine. She might not recognize it but something inside her does! Caine and his makeover! Hmm…I’m slowly warming to it! Smile

    Me too! And that was never my intention! LOL!!

    Thanks Ning!

  14. S.B. says:

    I was surprised how fast Ethan backed off; gutless bully. Go for it Dom! And it is cute and sweet to see Caine doing his thing about Alana – focusing on everything but what he feels. Looking forward to seeing his makeover! Really great shots with some stunning angles!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Ethan has never really been a fighter! In order to kill Bernard he had to have him drugged. Everyone else did the dirty work for him. He’s scum!

    LOL! Caine would shudder at the words cute and sweet! He would just say it was doing what needed to be done. He’s oblivious! Hahaha!!

    Thanks Beth! Some of them were a pain to get and others were born out of necessity since both Caine and Alana wanted to spend time GRINNING at each other! Haha! LOL

  15. Emily says:

    Woo! Go Dom! Don’t mess with the mom! LOL. Ethan is such a patzy, he’s abusing her all the time, the least he can do is sit there and take a little himself. Smile Dom was freakin’ awesome here and I feel for her too. Poor little dude out there by himself. Sad

    You had me rollin’ at the whole bathtub scene. Caine shaving and giving Alana the bath! Good stuff! I love those two personalities together, can’t wait to see her wake up! Alien

    Great update Phoenix, and loving the shorter, easier to catch up on pieces!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh man! Is he ever? LOL! You know how the abusers are always surprised when someone actually fights back! Surprise, surprise! I loved Dom in this prompt! Seriously! She was handling her own!

    Hahaha!!! Those two…next prompt! Oh boy! Yeah! Caine…not a smooth move guy! Not smooth at all!

    Thanks Emily! LOL! I know! Most of my updates are long huh? This one I have a word count to stick to! LOL!!

  16. sandybvv says:

    Oh I wanted to see what Caine and Alana looked like!!! Grin lol you meanie!!!

    I love the way Dom reacted to her son’s disappearing!
    I really hope Dom will be the one killing Ethan… but then I really want Caine to get revenge as well…

    Wonderful update and I love Dom’s clothes!!! she looks gorgeous even with that bruise on her face!!!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LMAO!! I couldn’t do it Sandy because I still hadn’t decided what they would look like myself.

    First and foremost Dom is a mom. She will do any and everything for her son. It’s still up in the air on who will get what…or if it’ll be done at all. Neutral

    Thanks Sandy!! That outfit came from GoS!

  17. thelook. says:

    Woo! I knew my Dom WOULD NOT put up with Ethan’s sorry little *censored* LOL And Alana and Caine are just like … chalk and cheese – they don’t match but we all know the story. Loving the story girl :}

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Hahaha! I LOVE Dom! I didn’t think I would but I do!Smile I’m glad someone else does as well!

    Hell yes! It’s about time Dominica laid down the freaking SMACK! It’s like when you go after a mother bear’s cub–she will fuck you up. Ethan has just had his nuts ripped off. Shame she didn’t actually, y’know, rip ’em off.

    And on a completely opposite note, awww… he bathed her. Sure, he peeked, but it was a sweet gesture.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I KNOW right!!? I would have snapped A LONG time ago but Dom held out until something went down with her son. She was NOT having that at all! And during all this Ethan was thinking: “What the hell did I do?” He’s an idiot!

    It was a sweet gesture! For all intents and purposes!Razz

  19. Valpre says:

    Whoa! I’m Team Dom all the way now. About time that Ethan got his ass kicked. And I’m glad it was Dom dealing out the ass whipping. Yep, Lycan women are fierce! Loved this. Grin

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Hahaha! Dom wasn’t supposed to turn out this way but since I never write out a chapter a head of time…well, I just went with the flow! She’s bad!

    I figured she deserved to get in a hit or two! And you’re right! Lycan females are fierce! ROTFL
