Read Alpha Killian by Jane Doe Chapter 23
My nerves hit somewhere around the six or seventh step. My gut was churning and I scolded myself for acting this way. I was about to waltz into Killian’s office and practically test his willpower.
“No backing down now.” Sierra smirked at my cowardly behavior.
I took a few deep breaths to settle my nerves. The last thing I needed was to be a sweaty, blundering mess when knocked on his door.
Killian’s office door was easy to spot. It was the only double door in the house and had a golden plaque with his name etched on it.
I knocked on his door hesitantly, and almost ran away when I heard his voice.
“Come in.” His husky voice gave me a chill.
I opened the door and flushed when love noticed he wasn’t alone.
Killian sat at a huge oak desk looking amazing as ever. His hair was tousled, and he wore a black button down shirt. The sleeves were rolled up to his elbows, and the top two buttons of the shirt were undone.
He had a frustrated look on his face, but it was wiped away when we locked eyes.
There was another man sitting on the other side of the desk, someone I kind of recognized. I hadn’t really met Killian’s beta, but I knew what he looked like.
Beta Gabriel was intimidating as all h**l. When he smiled, which was rare, it lit his face up like a little boy. His head was shaved, and he had a nasty scar that ran down his neck and under his shirt. Gabriel was the second most intimidating person I have met, Killian being number one.
“Claire, what-” Killian began, but his voice came to a halt as his eyes took me in. I ignored the small smirk on Gabriel’s face, and fought to keep my face indifferent.
“I wanted to talk to you.” I pouted, sticking my bottom lip out as I fiddled with my fingers.
“I wanna do more than just talk.” Sierra purred.
“P*****t.” I hissed.
“Leave us.” Killian commanded his Beta, his eyes not leaving my own. His eyes were darkening by the second.
Beta Gabriel fought to hide his smirk, but gave me a knowing look as he rose from his seat and made his way out the door.
The room was silent, and I tried not to squirm under Killian’s gaze. I felt my face flush as his eyes traveled the length of my body. From the darkness of his eyes, I could tell his wolf approved.
“Come here.” His voice was dangerously calm. I could feel his desire swirling around me, and I did my best to hide my thoughts and feelings.
With shaky hands, I walked over to Alpha Killian and my eyes widened when he grabbed me by the waist. A squeak of surprise left my lips as my bottom was placed on Killian’s desk.
My face was burning at this point. Killian had my legs trapped with his own. Well, wasn’t this what I wanted?
A knowing smirk formed on Killian’s face as his eyes lingered on my chest, and finally my blood filled cheeks.
“I like this dress.” He smirked, lifting his hand and toying with one of the small buttons that kept my chest hidden from sight.
“I do too.” My voice was soft, but thankfully didn’t sound nervous.
“What did you come here for, little mate?” His deep voice sounded amused. He leaned back in his seat and crossed his arms. I couldn’t help but let my eyes wander.
His arms were massive, leading up to an equally impressive chest. I ran my eyes over the prominent veins running down his forearms. Without my permission, my tongue peeked out of my mouth, running over my parched lips.
“Surely you didn’t come here just to test my self control, Claire.” He growled my name, ripping my eyes away from his body. His eyes weren’t quite black yet, but I could see his wolf swirling in the silver depths.
“Kira told me about the party tonight, and I wanted to go.” I spoke in a breathless rush.
I felt a pang go through me when Killian’s full lips turned down in a frown.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” He sighed, running a hand through his hair. “You’d be meeting the entire pack.”
“I know,” I gave him a small smile. “I want to.”
“You’ve only been in therapy for a week,” Killian frowned, “Going would mean accepting your place in this pack.”
The unspoken words hung in the air between us, waiting for my reply.
Would I accept myself as Luna? His Luna?
“I know, Killian.” I gave him a small smile. The butterflies were churning in my stomach at an unprecedented rate.
I could feel his surprise, but also his caution. He didn’t want to introduce me as Luna, only to have me reject him the next day.
Alpha Killian was afraid.
“I am not afraid.” His deep growl pulled me from my thoughts. I looked up at him in alarm, but was quickly relaxed as l looked into his silver eyes.
I could feel his worry as if it were my own. He was afraid to introduce me as his Luna. Afraid that once it happened, I would finally reject him.
At the moment I wasn’t thinking rationally. I was acting strictly on my emotions and the mate bond that pulled me towards his stranger.
His face remained indifferent, angry almost, but I could see the emotion swirling in his eyes.
I hopped off of the desk, ignoring the foreign look of surprise that crossed his handsome features. Sitting in his office chair, Killian was at eye level with me.
Trembling, I placed my hands on either side of his face. I finally got a good look at the eyes that constantly drew me in. They looked like storm clouds, or pools of mercury.
I reigned all of my emotions in, until I was feeling nothing but absolute determination. My emotion passed over Killian’s face, and I knew he could feel how sure I was about this.
“I’m your mate, which makes me Luna. I can’t hide out forever.” I sighed, basking in the sparks that ran down my hands.
His silver eyes were flecked with black when he spoke, asking a question that would change things from here on out.
“Does that mean you accept me, little mate?” His voice sounded amused, but I could feel the hidden emotions within his words.
Killian was a master at hiding how he felt, at putting a mask on to the world. I have no doubt that he could be cruel, and that he fully earned his reputation, but that wasn’t the Killian I saw. I couldn’t help but feel smug. Smug that I was the only one to see and feel who he really is.
“I accept you, Killian.” The words left my lips before I could even think them over. My emotions, Sierra’s emotions, and the mate bond overpowered any other thought in my mind.
And with those four words, I was swept off my feet. A loud growl emerged from Killian’s mouth, and I gasped as my back slammed into the wall.
Somewhat dazed, I realized I was sandwiched in between Killian and the far wall in his office. I could feel my feet dangling as one of Killian’s huge hands gripped my waist to keep me suspended.
His face was mere inches away from my own, but I wasn’t afraid. His sweet peppermint breath wafted around me, drawing me in. It was his eyes that captured me though. They were entirely black now, roaming my face as though it were the last thing they were ever going to see.
“What did you say, Claire?” His voice grew incredibly deep, his eyes never leaving my own.
“I said, I accept you Killian.” My voice came out softly, but never wavered.
My heart made the decision for me.
His lips slammed down on my own, completely stunning me, I’d be lying if l said I never imagined what it would be like to kiss Alpha Killian. This was nothing like I imagined.
His lips were inhumanly soft, and the sweet peppermint that lingered on his lips tasted so much better than it smelled. The sparks that ran across my lips dazed me, like an intoxicating d**g.
I felt his grip on my waist tighten and lift bit back a breathless m**n. For once, my mind wasn’t stuck in the past. I was reveling in the present and how Killian made me feel.
A strange sensation began to build just under my navel, but it didn’t sway me from enjoying Killian’s lips on my own.
His lips moved against my own. His experience and dominating nature taking control, using his tongue to run the length of my lower lip.
Biting back a giggle, I clenched my lips shut, refusing to let his tongue explore my mouth.
With a growl, his rough hand grabbed my t***h and yanked my leg up and around his waist. I gasped in shock, and felt him slip his tongue through my parted lips.
I’m sure he could taste my timid inexperience on the tip of my tongue, but I wasn’t concerned with that anymore, All I could taste, smell, and think about was Killian.
My fingers wrapped themselves in his hair, tugging and enjoying how soft it felt. The strange sensation in between my legs grew until it was almost unbearable.
I couldn’t hold back the quiet m**n that echoed against his lips. My hips brought themselves forward, pressing against Killian’s groin urgently.
“Claire” Killian growled against my lips, warning me against my current action. In could feel the warning in his tone, but the logical side of me was dormant. The taste of his tongue, the feel of his body against mine was d******g everything else out.
I knew I shouldn’t keep pushing him, but I wasn’t ready to pull away quite yet.
A frustrated whimper left my lips as Killian’s mouth traveled down my jaw. I could feel his chuckle rumbling in his chest at my frustration.
He peppered little kisses down my cheek and along my jaw. A gasp came through my lips as he began to nibble on my neck.
His lips traveled lower until they found the spot where his mark resided. I felt his teeth elongate and scrape against the sensitive spot.
“Killian.” I moaned breathlessly as I was assaulted by sheer bliss. Warmth and sparks shot from the sensitive spot, rushing through my body.
A growl ripped through Killian’s lips, and lipstick could feel his restraint waver as I moaned his name. He yanked my other leg up and around his waist, and my eyes widened as I felt something push against my core.
My initial shock was subdued when I felt his soft lips s**k on my neck, running over his mark. I pushed myself against the hardness in between his legs and dug my fingernails into his shoulders, letting my head fall back. In the back of my mind, I could feel his fingers rubbing small circles on my stomach, grazing the buttons that stood in his way.
Sierra was losing her mind just as much as I was, relishing in the attention our mate was giving us.
I could feel his fingers tug at one of the buttons on my dress, and I briefly wondered if I would stop him. Was I ready to go all the way? S*x was a completely foreign concept to me. Sure, I knew how it worked. I wasn’t completely inept, but I had no experience with anything physical. What if I disappointed him?
A loud knock on his office door pulled me from my bliss, startling both Killian and I. He pulled away from my neck and looked over my flushed face for a moment. My chest was heaving. My legs were still wrapped around his waist, and my dress had completely risen up my t****s.
“Go away.” Killian’s husky voice boomed towards the door, his eyes never leaving my own.
There was silence on the other side of the door, and I turned my attention back to Killian.
“You over estimate my self control.” Killian’s breath rolled over my swollen lips, but somehow I still wasn’t satiated.
“I-I didn’t do anything.” I stammered, my face heating up in embarrassment.
“Oh, is that how you see it?” He smirked, making no move to let me down.
“Mhm” I nodded, but my mind was elsewhere. I could still taste the peppermint on my tongue, the ache between my legs long from forgotton.
“Claire, you’re doing it again.” Killian’s voice was serious and quiet, his eyes fluctuating between silver and black.
“That is what I’m talking about,” Killian smirked at my heated face, “You continue to tempt me. But it’s no matter. Sooner or later you’ll be begging me to take you, little mate.” He spoke the last part slowly, his smirk deepening at the chill that ran down my body.
His eyes blackened as they looked down at how far my dress had risen. My bottom was almost fully exposed.
“Oh, and I wouldn’t wear that dress around me anymore.” He leaned in and let his warm breath hit my ear, “Next time, I will rip it off of you.”
Sierra howled in anticipation, I on the other hand was wedged tightly in between fear and lust. Fear, because l was an inexperienced little girl pursuing a very experienced man.
“Alpha, it’s an emergency.” The knocking on the door continued, the familiar voice of Gabriel calling through.
With a frustrated sigh, Killian placed me gently on the floor and allowed me to adjust myself.
“Come in.” Killian’s voice sounded deadly. I could feel his anger at being interrupted, but I was almost thankful. I wouldn’t have been able to stop myself if there wasn’t a thin layer of clothing between Killian and I.
Gabriel came into the room, his eyes looking between Killian and I. Killian’s shirt was definitely wrinkled, and I’m sure my hair was a mess.
A m*******s growl sounded from Killian, making me jump. He wasn’t looking at me though, he was glaring absolute daggers at Gabriel.
I could feel the possessiveness rolling off of Killian in waves, and I wondered if Gabriel mind-linked Killian.
“Mine.” Killian growled, wrapping his arm around my waist and pulling me against the side of his body. His eyes never left Gabriel’s face.
“I mind linked Travis to come and escort you home, I’ll be there to pick you up later.” Killian kept his voice deadly calm as his eyes were trained on Gabriel.
“Oh okay, I’ll see you later.” I spoke breathlessly, my eyes flickering between the two silent males. And people thought females were dramatic.
With a squeak of surprise, my face was lifted towards Killian and his familiar peppermint scent wafted in my mouth. His lips only lingered on my own for a second, but they were incredibly gentle.
Before I had the chance to react, he removed his lips from my own.
Feeling light headed and extremely dazed, I left Killian’s office.
