“Oh wow! I didn’t realize how late it was! Why didn’t you-”

Alana watched as Caine’s cue stick scratched the table and the ball completely missed the cup that he had set up.  The ball hit the ground with a sharp crack.  “Well, I’m sure that was going to be a really cool trick.  Sorry to interrupt. Try it again.”

“No, I’ll pass.”

There was something about his tone of voice that had her taking an uneasy step backward.  When he turned she froze like a deer caught in headlights.

Caine leaned against the cue and stared unblinkingly at her.  The silence stretched and he watched as she shifted uncomfortably before shaking his head.

“We need to talk.”

He’d woken up earlier that morning and knew that he and Alana had to talk.  After everything that had gone down yesterday the air had to be cleared.  He couldn’t keep being distracted by her.  He wasn’t some pup to be lead around by his nose.  Taking note of the flash of fear that appeared in her eyes he turned and headed into the living room.

Sitting at opposite sides of the small couch Caine tried to figure out the best way to start what was guaranteed to be an awkward conversation.  Glancing at Alana out the corner of his eyes he saw that she was nervously jiggling her leg as she gnawed at her thumbnail.

“I read somewhere that there are a lot of germs underneath of your fingernails.”

She gave a started and looked down at her hand before fisting it and nodding.  “There are.  Just imagine how many things you touch with your hands during the day without even noticing.  That’s why I keep sanitizer in my purse.  Actually I used to keep a small container in my pocket too but…” She stopped talking when she saw his lips curve.  “What?”

“You’re adorable when you ramble.”

“I’m rambling because I’m nervous.”

“What are you nervous for?”

“Oh, I don’t know.  Maybe because you’re acting strange or maybe because of everything that was said last night. Or maybe because of your cryptic: ‘We need to talk.’ statement.  Take your pick.”

“I guess we’ll start with the talk and lead into everything else.”

“Okay.”

“Alright.”

Another stretch of silence before Alana twisted and glared at Caine.

“So would you talk?!”

“I’m trying to think of where to start!” Caine snapped as he shoved a hand through his hair.  Rubbing a fisted hand over his thigh he tried to get his thoughts in order.

“Caine, just spit it out.”

“Alana…I can’t do this anymore.”

“I beg your pardon?”

Caine chuffed out a sound between a laugh and a groan.  “Look, this…thing between us is distracting me at a very important time.  I need to focus on finding Ethan and this other crazy pack. Not to mention finding out what the fuck is Victoria’s deal.  I can’t expect other people to fix my problems for me.”

“Okay.  Sure.  I can understand that.  So, I guess I can ask Rho to find me another place to stay.  I can-”

“Are you out of your mind? You’re not going anywhere.  You’re my responsibility.  I turned you, you’re my mate.  No male is going to be around you while we’re still technically unmated.”

“I’m confused.  What do you want?”

“I want you.  And I know that you’re still unsure of what you want.  I’m not trying to force anything on you but I just want to clear the air between us.  You’re still thinking in human terms.  I’ve been nothing but Lycan my entire life.  There are just some things that are taken at face value.”

“Like mating you mean?”

“Yes.  Alana…you have to understand some things are just instinct in our world.  A male meets a female, sniffs her, realizes that she’s it for him and they mate.”

“But, but what about getting to know the person? Knowing their favorite foods or favorite color? Knowing all their quirks?”

“That comes later.”

“Like a medieval arranged marriage,” she muttered.

“It’s not that bad.  If we were in a normal situation I would have taken the time to get to know you before saying we were mates.  Like I said you still have the human constraints on your mind.  I know that.  I also know that human females complain about human males not wanting to commit yet you’re freaking out because I want nothing more than to be with you.”

Alana shifted away from him, as if she could move away what he was saying.

“I know some things about you.  Like you love plaid and wear it when you can, you hate germs-”

“Everyone knows that about me.”

“But do they know that when you’re nervous you always tuck a piece of hair behind your left ear? That you do this weird humming thing when you sleep? That when you’re trying to figure out just the right thing to say you tilt your head to the right and squint one eye and do this strange thing where you roll your lips inward before letting them go with a pop? Your favorite color is lilac, not just purple, you spend exactly twenty-two minutes in the shower every day where you do this wet, lather, rinse routine.”

She felt him shift.  “I don’t know if I love you.  I’m still working on that.  But I know that I won’t ever be happy if you’re not.  I’d kill for you.  I have killed for you and I’d do it again.  I don’t know if that’s love but it’s something isn’t it?”

She was stunned. He knew all these little things about her.  Things that weren’t really important but still made her who she was.  Wasn’t that what she had always wanted in a man? For him to look beneath the surface and get to know her? Why was she holding onto her past when she had so many new things to look forward to?

“I know that you hate when I curse because you don’t.  You’ve been looking into getting textbooks for Julius so you can home school him because you don’t want him to fall behind and because you love teaching.  You’re going to make a wonderful mom no matter how much you doubt it.  I know that you want me but you don’t want to want me…and that I just don’t understand.”

“Caine-”

“But it’s fine.”

He said that a little too quickly.  Turning to face him she smiled.  He gave her a quick grin in return then reared back when she scooted across the couch toward him.

“W-what are you doing?”

“Just stay still.”

“I don’t think that’s going to be possible with you touching me.”

Alana looked down and grinned when when the bulge in his lap grew larger.  “Well, try not to move that much.”

She felt, rather than heard, his rumbling growl.  “What are you doing?”

“I figure you’ve had plenty of chances to touch me.  I pretty much haven’t gotten a chance to get to know your body.”

They stared intently at each other as one of her hands curled around his shoulder and the other rested of his racing heart.  Shifting slowly Caine leaned back and took a deep breathe.  “Okay Princess.  We’ll play this your way…for the moment.”

“Thank you.”  Shifting to a more comfortable position she allowed her hands to roam over his body.  He was more toned than she realized and had a light dusting of hair.  She wasn’t usually into hairy men but she found it…sexy on him.   And wow, did his body give off heat like a furnace.  She’d always noticed that when she was curled up against him.

“Are you always so hot?”

“It’s all in the genetics.” He winked at her when she rolled her eyes.  “No seriously though.  All Lycans run hot.  I think it has something to do with our metabolism.  Haven’t you noticed that  you do too?”

“No, I just thought Rho kept the apartment warm.”

He hummed when she plunged her hand in his hair.  Tightening her grip she looked down when his leg twitched.  She cocked an eyebrow when he tugged her hand away from his head.

“Let’s just say that I have several happy spots.”

“You’re kidding me right?”

“Yeah, let’s see if you say that when I find yours.”

“Caine?”

“Yeah?”

She wet her lips as she looped her arms around his neck.  “You know that thing you wanted me to ask you?”

“Yeah?” It was more a growl than an actually word.

“Well, I’m asking.”

She let out a shriek when the room spun around her.  She was suddenly on her back and Caine was nestled between her legs.

“No way Alana. No fucking way you’re getting out of it that easily. Now ask me really nice.”

Leaning up Alana caught his bottom lip between  her teeth and gave a sharp tug before releasing it.  “Do you know how many germs the human mouth carries?”

“Yeah, I did some research a few weeks back,” he muttered as his tongue darted out and traced the bow of her upper lip.

“The human mouth…the human mouth is no cleaner than a dog’s mouth,” she said shakily as her hands tugged the back of his shirt upward.

“No! No skin on skin.  I-I can’t handle that much.  Just a kiss.  I want our first time fucking to be right.”

“Making love.”

“Hate to break it to you Princess but our first time is going to be raw and gritty and-” His breathe shuddered as his hips jerked closer to her.  His eyes rolled back into his head when she widened her thighs to make more room for him.

“Fuck it,” he growled.  His head swooped down but he stopped when Alana ducked away from him.  “What now?” he snapped.  If he didn’t get his tongue in her mouth soon…

“Caine…kiss me.”

She didn’t ask but that was all semantics and who gave a shit when her mouth was under his and her hands were twisting in his hair as their bodies strained hard against each other.

Who gave a shit when her tongue was rubbing against his and her leg was somehow wrapped around his waist as their combined scents made the most heady combination he had ever smelled?

He sure as hell didn’t.

________________________________

I was hopped up on meds when I wrote this so hopefully it makes sense! And so we finally have THE KISS!!! I didn’t know how to make it happen like I had it pictured in my head so this is the best I could come up with.  Sorry! Frown And it was just a kiss.  No sexy times yet for these two.  But I think Caine finally getting a real taste of her will help him focus on what’s about to go down.  One can always hope! LOL!! Currently still working on Rho’s ‘One the Couch’ session. It’s harder than I thought it would be…

    They FINALLY kissed!! Hopefully it’ll calm Caine down a bit…but I doubt it because he’s going to want more…and so is she! Hehehe!

    Thanks Tessa! I love your reaction!Grin

    Phoenix this was a perfect first kiss! Sexy and sensual and everything I would have expected from those two!

    I was incredibly impressed with how much Caine knew about her habits. I wonder if she knows him as well. Loved it and wow I missed these guys!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Gayl! I tapped it out, had it sitting there and was about to hit the back button but just shrugged and went with it! Glad I did! Those two are like magnetics…but in a good way!

    Caine spent most of his time studying people. He’s just so in your face about everything that most people don’t realize that’s he’s taken their measure and filed it away! And no, she doesn’t. She’s been in the whole avoidance mode stage!

    Thanks girl!!! I missed these guys too!Grin

    That is the sexiest first kiss ever! There is no way, NO FREAKIN WAY, I could just let that be the end of it! He would have changed his mind about the skin on skin! lol

    I burst into laughter with her gem facts! I’m still laughing!

    This was so perfect!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! Thanks Qui! I was worried about it but I couldn’t have an awkward first kiss because it’s Caine and Alana! No doubt there probably was a little skin on skin but not as much as Caine wants…because he wants EVERYTHING!! He always has! Wink

    It’s never far from her mind no matter the situation!Razz And I had to toss it in there because it’s Alana after all.

    Thank you! Grin

    Hey it might have only been a kiss but it was a HOT kiss! Wink

    I love how he knew all the little things about her, awww.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thank you!Grin You know how it is worrying about something and I’ve been leading to this so I wanted it to be just so.

    Caine collects little bits of information and stores it away. I’m guessing that will make him a great Alpha!

    SQUEEEE!! Grin

    A hot kiss indeed! I was expecting that their first kiss would be cute, but awkward, with it being Caine’s first kiss and with Alana’s germ issues and all, but this was deliciously steamy–I guess those lycans are born to such maneuvers Razz

    Great work Grin

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I KNOW!!!!! *hops up and down*

    Thanks Van! Nah, I couldn’t let it go down like this. The heat has always been there between the two of them and lycan instinct sometimes just take over. It’ll probably be more awkward when they finally have sex! And indeed…those maneuvers always work in their favor!

    I’m glad I was able to pull it off Van! Yes

    YAY a kiss!!! it was hot! sexy and just adorable, the conversation was sweet and funny and so sincere… i can’t belive he knows all that about her… well he has to… she is his mate… Grin

    I just loved it…it reminded me of a movie, something about “things I love aobut you” or something like that…

    the germs conversation was hilarious, I’m glad all those fact didn’t ruin their moment! I can’t wait to see more!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    YAY!!! LOL! Thanks Sandy! I’m happy I found some sort of medium between sexy and funny!Smile I worry too much about that I think!Razz

    I was surprised when all those little factoids starting pouring out. I didn’t realize all those little things about Alana.

    Caine takes all those germ conversations in stride because he knows it’s just how she is. It can’t be helped and with years of therapy it might get toned down!Razz

    YES!!!! Finally these two are getting down to business. Now if they can get beyond their clothes…LOL! Seriously this scene was well written. Both of them nervous, ridiculously anxious to let down their guards. And they didn’t jump all romatic just because they were about to kiss. They remained exactly who they are and I love that. LOVE IT.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    That’s an awesome compliment! I wanted to make sure that they didn’t get all mushy because Caine doesn’t do mush and Alana would wonder what the heck was wrong with him! LOL! The clothes are going to come off…eventually! It only took me a year and some change to write the kiss!! Bwahaha!!

    Thanks!!Grin

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!!!! LMAO!!! Wow!!! That yes went off the grid!! Hehehe!!

    I know! I had it planned out earlier but it kept getting pushed back because it just didn’t feel right! This time it did!Grin OMG! When I have to write their mating I’ll probably be pulling out my hair! Haha!

    Hahaha!! Nolan and Vivian…I still don’t know about that one…
