Accidental Alpha #14
Stanley rushed through the door, his protective instincts screaming to protect Fenris.
Disaster. Everything in his apartment was torn apart. The couch tilted drunkenly on one wide, the cushions torn apart. Claw marks were evident on everything. His entertainment center resembled toothpicks, his television shattered, the smell of urine everywhere.
“I’m sorry, babe. You might not want to go into the bedroom.” Fenris’ calm tone helped settle some of Stanley’s panic but once the words sank in, a chill froze Stanley’s spine.
“I have to see.”
It was like being that stupid heroine in the spooky movie. Like knowing you shouldn’t go into the dark cellar of a haunted house in the middle of the night but still feeling compelled to check out the spooky noise.
Fenris slid his fingers through Stanley’s, squeezing his hand in a show of support.
Stanley gave the man a sickly smile, hoping he looked more confident than he felt.
Taking a deep breath through his mouth since his place stank, he walked down the short hall. His bedroom door hung solely by the lower hinge, long scratches scarred the surface and someone had carved the word ‘mate’ on the surface.
“What the hell?”
Pushing the door open he sucked in his breath. Someone had used red paint to cover the wall with the words. “You are mine.”
“That’s paint, right?”
Fenris gave a shaky laugh. “Yeah. I don’t think you want to sleep in your bed, though. He peed all around it.”
The bed itself looked pristine until he realized he never made his bed and he certainly never folded down the covers.
“Who did this?”
“Sebastian. It stinks of him. You might want to check with your dad about what exactly he promised the alpha. It looks to me he like he considers you as good as claimed.”
“Yeah, because I always fall for guys who trash my stuff then pee on it,” Stanley said dryly.
Fenris shrugged. “He probably figures you’d be more open to staying with him. He doesn’t expect you to have someone who recognizes the scent. Having you vulnerable and scared makes you more malleable. After all, he wants to immediately establish the power structure. If you are weaker he not only gets a strong mate but two alphas will draw stronger wolves to the pack. Sebastian wants to take over the city and you’re the man he’s chosen to help him do it.”
“It’ll be hard to take over the city with my shoe up his ass,” Stanley growled. “First I’m going to call the police and report this, then I’m going to call my mother and cry on her shoulder until she invites me to dinner where I can explain to her how I got in this situation.”
Fenris smiled. “And then?”
“Then I’m going to watch my sweet mother kick the big bad Overseer’s ass.”
