Lucas just wanted to be a normal human being, but normal is highly over-rated.
Lucas Speck had been just some guy who worked at an office supply store and house-sat for his snowbird parents. He was nobody special. Or that’s what he thought before the headaches start and weird things start to happen to him. When people start chasing him his whole life gets turned upside down.
Bennett was Ramsey’s beta, so nobody fucked with him. He was also the guy who enforced the clan rules, which meant most of the clan members looked at him with this fearful respect.
Forrest sucked in a breath. “Holy crap. My brother never submits to anyone but Ramsey, Lucas. Take his hand and read him. He’s letting you.”
Bennett turned and scowled at Forrest, not understanding why he was being a commentator in that moment.
Forrest seemed to read his mind. He explained, “He doesn’t know about this stuff, man. He didn’t grow up knowing he was a witch. He needs you to tell him shit like this.”
Bennett nodded once and turned back around.
Lucas looked at him in surprise and then hesitated before taking his hands. His skin was soft, but cool against Bennett’s. It made Bennett want to draw him in against his body so that he could warm the smaller man, but he held back, letting Lucas do what he had to do to be at ease with him.
“His name is Lucas,” Forrest said from behind him.
“You just called him by that name. I’m not stupid, Forrest,” Bennett said and rolled his eyes. He smiled at Lucas, but with his dragon eyes it had to look weird. It’s not like he could help it though.
Lucas smiled back at him.
He ran that name through his mind over and over again. Lucas was his mate. This man with his blonde hair and his torn sweater. This was the man that went into the grocery store he realized all at once. No wonder Bennett had an urge to follow him around that day.
Lucas watched him with fear and lust all swirling together in those blue eyes. Bennett couldn’t do anything about Lucas’ fear. Until he actually held him in his arms, his dragon was going to be close to the surface. He breathed out, trying to calm himself some, but it was no use.
He knew the instant Lucas started reading him. He could feel him in his mind. Bennett could also hear everything Lucas was thinking, as if he was saying it out loud. Please don’t eat me. Please don’t eat me.
Lucas got this look of wonder on his face. He stared right at Bennett and said, “Cassie said I’d find protection. I didn’t really believe her until just now. And you’re supposed to be my lover—” Lucas’ eyes widened and Bennett knew in that moment he understood they were mates. “I feel what you feel. It’s never been like this with anyone before
