Walk with Me
The house was a mess, with
so many babies being born they had run out of room. So the eight of them had gathered around the kitchen table one night, once all the kids were asleep,
and plans began to form for a large expansion of the house. They were lucky
they were on a double block and had the room, otherwise Rick wasn't sure what
they would have done. Once they had a rough idea of what they wanted, in came
architects and then the plans were submitted for
Now the building was taking
place, and didn't the house look like a construction zone. Half the house had
been cordoned off, so walls
could be knocked out to make room for the new rooms going up. There was
scaffolding all over the place. Piles of bricks and bags of cement mix covered their once beautiful lawn.
Not to mention the dust. Everytime they wiped a surface to try and clean up, the dust would just settle straight back down again.
Simon, Zack, Marcus and
Brian along with their kids had all moved, temporarily, to their parent's house, until the renovations were
complete.This helped lessen the number of people and children
around the area. Rick silently thanked god that none of them were pregnant at the moment. That left Rick, Jake and Charlie, along with Alex, Jason and
their three month old son,
William, in the house.
During the day you could
hardly tell half the household was missing due to the noise level with the construction. But once knock-off time arrived, and
the tools went down, then
peace reigned for a few hours. At least while Charlie and William slept.
Rick still remembered the
night William arrived. The little brat was eager to meet the world and arrived
a full week early. Jason had been terrified but Alex had managed to keep his mate calm while Dr. Owens
was called and they got ready to go to her surgery
for the delivery. The entire family had gathered, just like they had for every
birth so far.They all waited with bated breath
for Alex to announce the birth of his child. His brother had looked so proud as
he walked out to the waiting room with his arms full
of his son wrapped in a blue blanket. They had all been right, William was a large boy, he
weighed in at over nine pounds and he was a week early. Rick hated to think how big he might have been
if Jason had carried him to term. He had a feeling
their next Alpha had just been born. Time would tell
if he was correct.
Rick was snapped out of his
thoughts as Jake's fingers lightly trailed down the side of his arm. He lifted
his head and turned, smiling up at his mate, who was
seated behind him on the couch. Jake leaned in and kissed him lightly. "Love you," he
whispered against Rick's lips. Rick shivered. He would never get tired of
hearing Jake say that. After everything they went through, Rick never thought he would be
lucky enough to hear those words. Now, they were
finally together, happy and had a beautiful daughter. Rick really didn't think
life could get any better.
Jake smiled at him and
nudged his head in the direction of Rick's brother. Rick looked over and smiled
at the sight. Alex sat in his armchair, Jason curled
up on his lap and in his arms he held William. Neither of the men were paying
the least bit of attention to what was on the television, or the room surrounding them. Both too taken
with the little man Jason held in his arms. Alex's large
hand was moving in gentle
strokes across his sleeping child's body.
"Feel like taking a night-time stroll with
me?" Jake asked quietly. Charlie was in bed, she'd been put down over an
hour ago and hopefully she shouldn't wake up until roughly midnight. She was only
waking up once during the night now, much to Jake and Rick's delight.
"I'd love to."
Rick stood and held his hand out for his mate, pulling him from where he had
been lounging on the couch. Jake didn't let go of his hand. As they walked
passed Alex and Jason, Rick stopped. "Would you mind keeping and ear out for
Charlie? We'd like to take a walk," Rick asked his brother quietly, not
wanting to wake William.
replied, briefly meeting his eyes, so Rick knew he understood what he'd been asked,
before he turned his concentration back to the men in his arms.
They left the lounge room
and headed out. Rick shoved his feet into a pair of
black and white thongs, stacked in one of the many shoe racks they had in the
Jake pulled out a dark blue pair and slipped them on. Rick watch his
mate's toes wiggle as he got his feet situated in the shoes, and couldn't believe how sexy he thought they looked. They were toes for crying out loud. Rick put it down to them being
Jake's toes and left it at that. He didn't have a toe
fetish, but he did have an anything-Jake fetish. Jake cleared his throat as if the man knew
exactly what Rick was thinking. The man's lecherous grin told him exactly that.
Still holding hands they
closed the door behind them and stepped out into the
cool night air and set out down the street. The stars were bright tonight, the moon high in the sky,
only a couple more nights until the full moon. Rick couldn't wait. Although
they could shift at any time, since Charlie was born,
they hadn't managed to escape and run anywhere near as often as they used to.
"I'm looking forward to the run on Thursday,"
Rick said quietly, there was no need to talk loudly, the night was still and he
didn't want to disturb the peace that settled around
Jake let go of his hand and
wrapped his arm around Rick's shoulder, pulling him in close against his body.
Rick placed his hand on Jake's waist and inhaled his mate's intoxicating scent.
Even after all these years, after everything they'd been through, that scent
had never stopped effecting him.
"I can't wait to run
and chase you down. Make you submit to me," Jake whispered in his ear
before he gently bit Rick's earlobe. Rick shuddered at the husky voice and
stumbled. Jake was right there to catch him though,
making sure he was safe. Just like he had been since Rick was sixteen, even if he
hadn't realised it at the time.
Rick moaned as images of
their last full moon run came flooding back to him. His prick stiffened in his
pants and Rick had to reach down to adjust himself,
because he really was quite uncomfortable now.
"I take it you like
that idea?" Jake asked
as they continued their stroll down the street.
"You know I do."
"I do." Jake's
sexy chuckle had Rick wanting the man to throw him down, and ravish him. He somehow didn't think Mr
and Mrs Perkins would appreciate them going for it on their front lawn though.
More's the pity.
"I hate you right
now," Rick mock growled at him mate.
"Nah, you love me. I
know you do."
"I really do."
There was no point in denying it. Rick had tried that for ten long years, if he couldn't pull it off
then, he had no hope of pulling it off now.
Jake tightened his grip
around Rick and held him close. Rick sighed as Jake bent down and kissed the
top of his head. Life really couldn't get much better
than this. After several blocks they turned around and headed for home.
