A mate. A very special and very rare bond, a moon goddess can gift to a wolf. It is a blessing one can cherish for life. Like real-world soulmates, but much stronger.
Taehyung, an omega wolf, longed for a mate too, for him to cherish, hold, and brag about.
And he gets one. Only for him to hide.
For the goddess has paired him with a rogue
A rogue, which is feared by his whole pack.

Kim Taehyung, Omega of the Alpha Kim family, was seated in the window seat with curtains drawn open.
It was nearly midnight, the moon blooming golden white. He was looking at the moon, mesmerized and deep in thoughts.
"Taebear!! Draw the curtain close and get away from there!!" His brother, Kim Namjoon shouted as he pulled Taehyung away from the window and switched off the lights.
"Don't you know to not turn on the lights at this time of night?!" Namjoon shouted.
He knows. Everyone knows. Little children were grown up with these scary bedtime stories to make them sleep early. A story where a rogue roams near the packs at midnight, and if it sees anyone roaming outside, would wolf down in one go.
He didn't believe it until people in his-
-pack returned home harmed, broken, impaired for life. And all these people pointed out the single nightmare of their pack.
A Rogue Wolf. With Red Eyes.
✯ At Present ✯
He was late. He will get punished if he doesn't attend his first class. And if he's detained again they will call his brother, Kim Namjoon, the next alpha in line. He can't be late.
"Tae, you bullspit!! If you don't come downstairs in two minutes, we'll be-
-late again!" Jimin, his childhood bestfriend, yells. Tae and Jimin go to their academy together. A year is all they have left to complete the program.
"Coming! I'm coming! I was just looking for my other sock" he replied as he descended the stairs.
"Taebear, I've made breakfast. Eat with Jimin and then leave for your-",
His Mother, Kim Jun hee, before she could finish talking, Jimin shouted,
"No Luna! We are already late! We can't get any more black points or we'll be barred from dancing!"
Tae just looked at each other.
"Yes mother, we are late! I'm sorry" Tae apologized before kissing her cheeks to make up for upsetting her.
They both said their goodbyes and ran down the streets. To catch up with yoongi, who was leaning on the door of his Kei van.
Jimin left Tae to hop on his mate and kiss him senselessly. They are the ideal mates everyone adores, everyone wants and everyone jealous of, including Taehyung.
Everyone in their friend circle got a mate except for Taehyung. He wants a mate badly, yet he's only 19. Just a--
Year went without a potential mate. But it makes him scared shitless.
What if he doesn't get a mate?
What if the moon goddess has found him not worthy of a mate bond?
Every time he thinks about it, he cries, then his father, Kim Chan Yeol comforts him with 'Moon goddess--
--knows who are stronger enough to be alone. She finds you as a strong pup. Strong enough to be alone. Not anyone can be alone, bear. But you can. Because you are stronger'.
Being alone is not a problem for him. It is him being lonely.
He just sighs and gets in his seat near the window where Jimin sat beside Yoongi holding his hands as the ride goes.
After the classes ended, Yoongi dropped them off. Tae and Jimin held hands as they walked together to their homes.
Tae spots a white fluff ball standing with its two feet and long ears up in the air as if it senses Tae from a long distance.
Tae runs towards it and scoops the fluff ball in his hands and takes in the scent of cinnamon and pine.
He feels relished in the scent as he hugs the bunny close to his crook of neck.
"Oh look! That's Mr. Cuddles! Tell me Mr. Cuddles, how do you get fatter every time we meet you?"
Instead gets a smack in his chest by Taehyung.
"Stop that Chim! He's not fat just chubby. Right cuddles?" The bunny lets a soft grinding noise with his teeth as if saying yes to Taehyung.
"He said yes!" Tae shouted and Jimin followed as they both filled the empty streets with their fits of laughter.
"Give me that chubby monster? Let me see how he is."
"No Chim he's mine!" He hugs him closer, afraid of Jimin taking the bunny from him. He wants to hold that pine scent forever with him.
But then Jimin pushes his hands away from the bunny to get and as tae tries to run away from him, the bunny escaped these punks and ran towards the bushes and vanishes.
Two just stopped fighting and looked towards the direction where cuddles just ran off.
Tae feels his temper rising as he turns to glare at his friend. Jimin starts running towards his house, as Taehyung starts chasing after him shouting profanities.
"I just wanted to hold him! You didn't give me! It’s your fault! Not mine!"
The bunny just looked at everything from behind the bush as it takes its feet and hops off towards the woods.
Hoseok’s hands reach down and grab him by his collar. He snapped and punched the opponent square in his face.
“That’s a fucking weak punch, Hobi,” said Namjoon and drove his fist deep into the other’s gut.
Hobi growls back at him in contempt, falling butt first to the ground clutching his gut as he tries to recover from the blow.
Namjoon slammed his right foot down on Hobi's ankle, making him raise back again to clasp his foot which was probably broken by the impact.
The head swung left as Joon grasped his neck, fingers tightening on his jaw.
A light graze of teeth is felt in the crook of the injured alpha's neck. He gasps in a panic only for namjoon to throw him to the ground again.
“That’s a pathetic move, Jung. With this you won’t even be able to win a wild boar”, Namjoon spats while glaring at Hobi as Yoongi runs to check his leg.
Everyone can feel the tension in the air as the Alpha apparent shouts.
“Is this what you all can do? Is this what you’ve been training for all these years?! There's no wonder why we are losing people so quickly.
“With this how will you save this pack? Do not call yourselves warriors!-
-Just run back home with your tails between your leg—“ he was then interrupted by,
The combat field, which was surrounded by dense woods and the smell of damp moss and wet tree trunks,
now whirled with the smell of floral scents as Taehyung ran towards them slightly stumbling on his way.
“Tae stop running! You might fall!”
“Hyung, stop shouting at everyone! It's Luperas! Everyone should celebrate”
Luperas marks a day where the whole pack celebrates it as an annual tradition to follow.
It is the day for thanking and worshipping the moon goddess for purifying the pack and promoting health and fertility.
“I know bear, but we should be alert and high on senses for you and our people to celebrate” Namjoon sighs as he turns to look at his warriors, their eyes heavy with tiredness as they watch him.
“But you all are already strong enough to fight.
"There’s nothing wrong in taking a daybreak”. Taehyung says back.
“You are rig—wait.. what are you doing here? Did you come here alone? With no guards?” Namjoon raises his voice as Tae cowers back in panic and turns to give a basket to Yoongi.
“Okay everyone I bought food! Now Eat and get ready for the festival!” Tae says as all rush towards the basket to see what is in there. Tae was pulled back from the crowd by a grip on his forearm.
“How many times do I have to say to not roam in the woods all alone Taehyung?”
His hyung called him by his full name. He’s in trouble. He looks back at yoongi or hobi only for them to turn the other way as if they didn’t want to face the wrath of their Alpha apparent anymore.
“I just bought you food”, Tae pouted knowing it would always work on his hyung.
He hears a sigh as Joon speaks, “Where is Yunho? He’s the one who always brings the food.”
“He left for town to get something. And I’m going back now. I have to practice the dance for today’s festive” he tries to run
but soon stopped as Namjoon speaks again,
“Alone? Are you kidding me?” he looks back at the warriors, his eyes stopping at
“Hobi, take Tae back to the packhouse.”
Hobi looks longingly at his meat which is close to his mouth to be eaten but leaves it in his place and gets up to walk Tae back.
Both were walking in the woods, Tae humming some tune, Hobi following him with his hands on his back.
“I’m sorry Hyung for not letting you eat at peace”, Tae says, worry evident in his voice.
“No Tae, you need to be safe first for me to eat at peace”, Says Hobi in utter determination.
Tae sighs again as he thinks of how the warriors in his pack always want the pack member’s safety first. No matter how pure their hearts are, they still get attacked and killed.
Why moon goddess allows them to be injured.
He was deep in thought when a pine scent invades His nose. “Oh, cuddles!”.
He looks everywhere for the white fluff ball. And sees him hopping towards himself and circling his legs.
Tae carries him in his arms and boops their noses together and sniffs in his oh-so-favorite pine scent.
“What are you doing here in the woods every day? Did you find yourself a girlfriend or what?” he speaks, as the bunny settles itself comfortably in Tae's arms
and snuggles deep in his neck, searching for the warmth.
Tae holds him tightly and takes him back to the packhouse.
Tae was so nervous as the hold he had on the bunny, made it fumbling and stumbling on his arms.
He was nervous because there are so many people there and he did not want to embarrass himself in the Bima.
He was nervous because he didn’t practice enough as he was chasing the bunny every time it ran out of his sight.
He was so nervous now that he needs the pine scent to calm his nerves.
“Let him breathe, Tae. You’re making him uncomfortable.” Jimin groans as he fixes his makeup.
“Stop speaking if you are not helping me”, he says continuing to caress the uncomfortable bunny.
“Oh god, please! You know you would dance perfectly” Jimin groans again, standing to dust off his pants.
Just then Yunho, one of the dancers enters the room,
“Taehyung, alpha’s calling you”
He puts the bunny down with half mind, looking at Jimin for his approval on his looks to step foot outside.
Tae’s wearing a white sheer shirt matching with a white pant that ends with a glittering mess.
His hair is decorated with flowers, and his smoky eyes are surrounded by tiny sparkling stones.
Once Jimin nods his head after a brief check on him, Tae leaves to meet his father.
“Oh son, meet Alpha Lee and his family. Here to celebrate this festival with us”, his father shows a man of his father’s age beaming with dominance with an alpha female holding his hands, assuming his mate, to the right an handsome man, an alpha again nearly his age.
Tae bows down to his hips, “Greetings to see you here Alpha. Hope you enjoy this evening” bowing again and again to the three alphas.
“Kim, you raised him with such respect and elegance. And thank you Taehyung,-
- I already like this place. Hope to stay here for a while.” Lee says stretching out his hand for Tae’s father to hold.
“It’s my pleasure and gladly we have enough place for your family to stay as long as you will,”
-his father says as they walk away talking something about the pack stuff.
Tae stands there ideally as a voice interrupts him, “Hello, Taehyung-ssi. I’m Lee Jae sung. It's nice meeting you”.
He turns over to see where the voice comes from. Alpha Lee’s son. A pup alpha with his canines barely showing.
“Jae sung-ssi. It is nice meeting you too”
Taehyung was seated with Jae sung as his father is giving a speech welcoming everyone that have come there.
But he can’t sit still, the dance is next. He excuses himself and runs to the backroom to see Jimin correcting his stance with Yoongi helping him.
He searches for the fluff ball, it is nowhere to be found.
“Chim where is cuddles?”
“Cuddles? He was there at that table. Eating away my treats.” Jimin replies, smiling at Yoongi when he holds him dearly to prevent him from falling.
“No Chim he’s not here”. “Tae stop panicking. He must be here somewhere”
Tae searches for him and asks for everyone who crosses him for the fluffball. He runs to the backside of the festive place where a kid said he saw the fluffball running there.
He feels the slight scent of pine in the air and runs in that direction. Now the voice of his father and the bustling of people and music sound back somewhere faintly.
Tae knows he should return as the scent is trailing towards the woods.
He groans at the bunny for leaving him at his crucial time and turns his back to leave, for him to stop when his nose picks up distress in the air. And the distress is mixed with pine. He calls for the bunny.
“Bunny, are you there? Are you hurt?”
He again starts walking, trailing towards the distressing pine scent. The scent is getting heavy in the air, meaning his bunny is near somewhere.
It's dark everywhere and he's getting closer to the pine smell. Tae turns back, only for the trees standing tall.
He’s deep in the woods. He should return. But the bunny is near. He can feel it. It’s in pain. And he can’t risk going any further inside the woods.
He contemplates what to do; then he hears a pained whimper. His bunny.
Tae runs. Clutching onto the wooden hand knife he always had for safety.
“Bunny!”, he finds it, laying there, breathing heavily. Tae can see blood surrounding the area where the bunny lays.
He runs quickly, quickly cradling the bunny in his arm with utter care to not hurt him any further.
There is a bite mark. Badly wounded. Bunny must’ve escaped before ‘that’ can attack him fully. He feels tears bawling from his eyes. “Bun, you should’ve stayed with me”
The leaves are brustling. Branches breaking. Something is slowly approaching them.
Tae held the knife tightly before wrapping the bunny carefully with his shawl and tying it towards his chest and covering them both with his body coat.
The attacker is stronger than he is. He can feel it. But he knows few defense methods.
He’s ready to run when the scent of pine increases in the air. Tae stands there confused as this pine scent is stronger and the cinnamon is mixed heavily with the pine.
It’s so strong that Tae now wants to cower in his nest. What confuses him more is the scent is not coming from the bunny.
Just then the branches move away and
reveal dark red eyes, looking towards him, canines elongated with fresh blood dripping from them, he hears the low growl.
Tae stands there one hand clutching the bunny and one with a knife, his eyes opened wide looking at the red eyes in panic.
His mouth whispers..
The ritual dance of Luperas is a kind of worship for the moon goddess as the dancers take rhythmical steps towards each other carrying flowers in hand and swirling in circles.
This is a religious tradition for all the omegas, to venerate their deities,
to provide them with health and fertility.
Apart from this being a tradition, It is believed unmated omegas will be blessed with a fated soon after this day.
So, it is a must for unmated omegas to take part in this dance.
But, Taehyung is nowhere to be found on the Bima. He is to be dancing beside Jimin, but now that place is empty. His mother, the Luna is fuming.
The dance ended with a slow twirl, as they throw the flowers they carried in their hand in the bima.
Jimin descended from the stage, only to be surrounded by his best friend’s family with questioning eyes.
Namjoon was the first to speak, “Where is Tae, Jimin?”. Jimin appeared to be nervous, sweating, while replying, “Hyung, I searched for him before the
stage, but he’s nowhere in sight”.
He looked at Joon and his leaders worried face, sighing, “Last time I saw him, he was searching for Cuddles.”
“Cuddles?”, confused Joon asked.
“That Rabbit, Hyung!”
But still, he knows that would not stop his brother from missing this Celebration.
“Where was he searching?”, “The last I saw him was behind the stage”, Jimin replied as Seokjin swarmed to their backstage holding his fated, Namjoon’s hand.
There was a hint of lavender smell, but Tae nor the rabbit is there. They both walked the path following the faint smell of Taehyung, suddenly halting.
Jin gasped with his hands on his shirt, the other holding Joon’s bicep, tightening.
Joon, voice cold, said, “You go in, call the others. Now!”, as he stripped off his shirt.
“Are you going alone?” troubled Jin asked. “I have to” kissed his fate’s cheek and took off to the woods in his wolf form.
Jin ran towards the Bima to call the others
It was not a rogue wolf.
It was a creature depicting hell.
Tall as him, teeth pointed sharpy, blood trailing from it to the ground, snarling with a low growl deep from its throat.
Tae whimpered seeing the beast, hands tightening on his knife with a pounding heartbeat. He needs to fight the beast or should run for his life.
But he knows he can’t escape the beast and he’s not ready to go down without a fight.
He was taking slow steps back, as the beast advanced its steps towards him. Every time he took a step back, there was a pained squeal from the rogue.
But it halted on his steps for a moment, turning its head towards the white bundle, lying injured on the ground.
The lone wolf growled not moving its legs but his snout nudging the white fur, sniffing him, but eyes still on Taehyung.
When it felt satisfied, not really sure for what, it turned its body again in the direction of Taehyung, baring its teeth.
Tae knows now is the time or he would be dead. He took his feet off the ground, sprinting in a direction hoping it would lead him to his pack.
But the beast is faster as it stretches its legs, claws sunken in his calf. The smell of blood pungent in the air.
Tae staggered in his step, falling to the ground, as he let out a scream of pain.
He swung the knife, plunging into the beast’s paw. Whimpering with a pained scowl, shaking its head, the wolf backed away more.
Tae crawled backwards while crouching, to get afar from the beast. But the wolf is fast enough as it growled deeply before jumping at him.
Tae let out a wild cry and closed his eyes, waiting for those clawed paws to hit him.
Should I continue or stop here?
In the dark, in between the rustling of leaves, chattering and creaking of branches, Joon heard his brother’s scream, painful to his ears
He sprinted in that direction. Followed by all the warriors of their pack and their head Alpha ran ferociously,
guiding them towards the pained lavender scent.
Eyes closed, Tae waited for the claws to appear, but none happened. He can only feel the warm breath near his face. He slowly opened his eyes, blurred vision becoming clear,
and saw the rogue staring at his face, cold yet confusion evident in its eyes. He can’t look anywhere now but those eyes.
Now when the rage is diminished from the air, the pine scent becomes palpable. Increasing, almost suffocating his lungs.
He knows what it is, and why it’s happening.
His heart stops at the recognition.
He now knows who the rogue is.
The word breaks everything in him, then filling him with a warmth he had never felt before.
He feels himself being lost in that word. Lost to a Home he never felt before.
He can see the rogue sniffing the air surrounding him.
Then near his face, then to his neck.
It starts rubbing and licking the neck and his face all over, aggressively. Growling when his skin ends as his shirt covers the rest. He sniffs his chest, and belly and goes south, stopping at his privates.
TW\\ slight NSFW (if you call that)
The wolf growls in deep as heat rushes to Tae’s face.Lust clouding his senses.
When the wolf starts rubbing its snout aggressively there, tae can’t stop the moan that leaves his mouth, pushing the wolf off him,
The wolf stops himself staring at Tae. Those eyes holding some deep meaning in it
It’s dark now. Darker than he has ever seen before, staring right back at him. Those eyes won't let him turn away from them.
Holding and molding him in those eyes.
Tae reaches out to touch his nose, hesitant on its steps but slightly pushes his snout in Tae’s hand.
He caresses his mate’s fur, holding the face in both hands, rubbing the ears, halts hearing the wolf mewls.
He mewls. Tae giggles a little at his mewl. The most feared rogue beast now mewling in his hand.
Hearing the laughter, the wolf raises one of his ears, tilting his head to a side. Tae gasps as he boops their noses together, rubbing his cheek on the fur,
rubbing his cheek on the fur, “My mate’s adorable”
As they relish in each other, they hear, “Taehyung!”
They both turn in the direction of the voice. Panic rose to his chest, now it is his father, “Taebear! Are you out there?”.
Springing to his feet, almost falling cause of his injured leg, as his mate catches him by his back steadying him.
It’s eyes staying on the place where he bit him. Then trailing to Tae’s face and then to the voices of leaves crunching, footsteps arriving.
Tae knows he can’t let them see his mate. He looks at his mate, forcing him in the opposite direction, “Go!”.
The wolf’s stubborn in his stay pushing its head in Tae’s belly.
“You need to go! Now! Please.. go..” he gave a strained smile at his mate,
nodding his head.
The wolf looks at him for the last time before running in the opposite direction.
Tae stays there, pain beginning to crush his inside, asking him to follow his mate. Separation from his fated forcing the air out of his lungs,
caging his chest in itself. His legs get weak, as he falls to the ground, an agnoising scream of pain escaping his mouth.
Throat straining from the intensity he cries hurts him. Still, mouth open yet no sound coming out of it as he curls to a ball of himself.
He hears someone come to him, shaking him but all he wants is his mate.
His eyes became hazy, visions blurry.
But all he thinks is…
Dark, everywhere. It’s pitch black.
He feels grieving pain in him, ready to take away his life. He tries to hold something. Anything.
His head pounding like someone is hitting him. His throat is burning, as he finds himself screaming in misery.
Writhing in the bed, his hands curling and his legs thrashing everywhere.
He hears, “Tae, open your eyes! We are here with you... you are safe!”, and someone holding him down.
A warm cotton smell engulfs him. His mother.
She’s holding him. His body convulses, his lungs were desperate for air.
“Breathe, Tae. Breathe!”, he tries sucking in the air as much as he can, his eyes falling open. His vision is blurry, as sees a few silhouettes in the room with him.
“Tae!” he turns to his side, blinking his eyes, feeling tears roll down his cheek and vision becoming clear.
It's his brother, eyes swollen.
He stills for a moment, as the memories flush back in.
A new wave of pain courses through him, his mouth falls open, body arching, he tries to speak yet no sound escapes his mouth.
“It hurts-s..” voice weak, “m-make it stop… please-e”, he clutches his brother's hand, who helplessly looks down at him.
From the corner of his eyes, he sees Seokjin running in, with their pack doctor. He injects something as Tae feels his senses getting numb, as his eyes fall shut. The last thing he sees is..
The black wolf…
He wakes up one more time and finds an arm circling his waist, he tries to look beside him, turning his strained neck. Its Jimin sleeping with a frown, dark circles beneath his eyes.
His throat burns. He sucks in his breath, the air entering his dry lungs,
making him cough.
Jimin wakes up frantically, “what is it?” he tries to speak, voices gruff, “Water-r"
Jimin gets the nearby tumbler, holds taes head, and feeds him
Hoseok enters the Chamber, halting his steps when he sees Tae awake in the bed hugging Jimin
His eyes gloss, as he comes near tae ruffling his hair, “God Morning kiddo..”
Tae scrunches his face, “I-I’m not a k-kiddo”, as the other two laugh.
Hoseok leaves before uttering, “I’ll call the others”
Jimin looks at Tae, “What happened, Tae?” and receives no answer. He continues sipping the empty straw.
“Everyone was worried. Joonie Hyung was crying. Never seen him crying before”
“What do you mean?” “You were unconscious for 2 days!”, Jimin whisper shouts
Tae looks down, his thoughts haywire.
“What did you feel when you first saw Yoongi Hyung, chim?” Jimin halts as he looks at Tae, “why does it matter now?”, again he remains silent his head falling.
Just as then for Jimin to press further about the matter,
the door flies open, Joon running in, following everyone.
His father hugs him close as his mother thanks to the goddess for waking up Tae.
The next moments are a blur, with all asking the same questions.
How does he feel and what happened. He avoids it by saying he doesn’t remember, assuming no one knows anything.
“What’s there to ask? It's that Beast Unquestionably!”, Hoseok says, clenching his fist.
Tae feels his body shiver again, fear rushing in his veins. “I’m gonna fucking rip off its insides and then torture it death” He growls.
Tae feels his eyes on the verge of turning blue, his omega at the edge on hearing threat to his mate,
his fists clenching on the bedsheets.
He closes his eyes, face hardening as he takes deep breaths. He opens it and freezes when he feels Jimin’s questioning eyes on him.
// i feel like it being rushed?? Is it okay?
Tae was forced to stay in his room to recover. He was made to promise to not wander near the woods anymore. And he did.
But he knows he would! And no one would stop him from meeting his mate.
He spends the next few days in his chamber, sitting near the window aisle, looking outside. His thoughts always surrounding his mate.
He smiles at the word, his insides flourishing on remembering his adorable fated.
It leaves tingles all over,at the emotions he received for a few hours he spent with his mate.
Lost in his thoughts, he doesn’t notice someone entering and the door falling shut again.
“What is it that makes you smile this early, in the morning?”. Tae rushes to his feet after hearing a voice near him. It’s always Jimin who caughts him.
“What are you doing here?” “Here to wash that tangled mess of your hair".
And bought some oil. Yoongi purchased it for me. Wanna check it out on you first”, spoke with his eyes on the oil canner he had.
“You don’t change, do you?” to which Jimin raises one of his shoulder.
“Should I?”, tae sighs shaking his head walking towards
Tae leans his back on the wall of the pool, with Jimin sitting on one of the steps, washing Tae’s hair elegantly. Tae was washing himself when he eyes the wound his mate caused him in his calf.
He smiles lovingly at the memory of his fated, how he lapped the wounds, cleaning the gushing drops of blood off, whining and guilty looking at him.
This goes noticed by Jimin. After moments of silence, Jimin speaks, “Did you find your mate?”.
Tae freezes, his breathing pattern changing. “W-What are you talking about...?”, he nervously laughs it off.
“You know what it is, Tae. I’m your best friend, I know how you’ll be when you are happy or when you are sad or in pain.
Did you think I won’t notice? Your scent slightly changed but not much evident in the air. It means you found your mate. And it must be when you went in the woods”.
Tae feels his heart hammering in his chest. He can even hear his heartbeat out loud.
“But what I can’t understand is the wounds and the pain you felt the following days. I thought your mate is dead…”, his omega reaches out to grab Jimin by the collar, blue eyes piercing through him,
“but I assumed he’s not,.. judging by the subtle smiles”
The grip on the collar loosens, and his eyes return to normal. Jimin continues, “Which leaves just another option…”, he drags.
His stomach twists, body mentally paralyzing, thinking about what would happen after. If Jimin knows, then yoongi knows.
If yoongi knows then his family knows. His jaw trembled, his eyes almost pleading, “which is, you found your mate and they might be the one who saved you from the beast. Am I right?”
Quite taken aback by this theory, he feels relief surrounding him.
He slightly nods his head at Jimin who still looks inconvincible at this.
“But what I don’t understand is why you hiding it. Whoever he is, even if they are our enemy, if they saved you, you know we all would accept them, right?”.
How they would, when his mate is the beast, they all are afraid of.
He thoughts but never voices out.
Tae gets up, covers himself, and walks out in silence. Thankfully Jimin doesn’t push him further. Maybe he believes his Taetae won't hide anything from him
It was mid-noon when Tae with his Family was invited to lunch by the Alpha Lee. It was quite boring, with the pup alpha pestering him in between bragging on how he would rip the jaws of the beast apart for touching Taehyung.
He sighs and looks elsewhere, his omega is constantly at the edge to meet his alpha.
The lunch ended soon, and the Luna of Lee pack suggested going horse ride.
He gritted his teeth in annoyance, “ I’m feeling quite drowsy, will you please excuse me?”,
he asked politely to which the others accepted dearly but the young alpha pouted looking down yet nodding his head lightly.
Such a puppy, he thought.
When they all left, he ran in the direction of the wood, scooping his pants up. What goes unnoticed is Jimin watching him.
He runs excitedly to meet his wolf. When he reaches the place where he met him last time, there’s not even a trace of Cuddles blood
It frustrates the hell out of him as he doesn’t even know what to call his mate.
He runs and runs his excitement dying down as anxiety rushes to the surface. What if his mate doesn’t recognize him and left him? He runs berserk to at least get a sniff
of the pine scent.
He runs till he reaches a lake he has never seen before. He yells his frustration out, tears streaming down his face, knees buckling as he falls down.
His whole system halts when he smells it. The pine scent.
He whips his head, in the direction of branches creaking, emerging the giant wolf.
He’s once more mesmerized at his mate, heart skipping many beats, body feeling light. He feels a rope tying him and pulling him to his mate.
The empty void he felt before long gone as warmth fills him.
The rogue is no better, stuck between walking forward or drooling at this enchanted beauty, his doe eyes wide enough. He takes a slow step forward to Taehyung.
As the wolf nears him, he notices another pair of doe eyes and fur white contrast to the dark wolf seated in between his mate’s ears.
“Cuddles?”, Tae asks at which the rabbit jumps off the wolf's back and runs toward Tae as he cradles him in his arm.
“oh my god! Are you okay? I was worried..” he snuggles in the fluff ball.
He feels wet licks on his calf, in his wounds. The licks give a weird sensation, his world stopping, as electricity surges throughout his body.
Shivers run to his spine as his legs start to tremble, losing their balance, and fell to the ground.
He hears a low whine as the rogue grabs the long ears of the rabbit and yeets him to the side and settles his face in the palm of Tae.
He giggles and scratches the rough fur, “is that jealous I see..?”, he hears a low rumble again and a gruff as the wolf stands to his feet and walks towards the lake. Maybe he understood Tae teasing him.
He walks further inside the water turning to look at
Tae as if he is calling him inside.
Tae thinks for a moment, if he gets in, his dress might get wet. He can't explain it to anyone. But he can't really strip in front of the wolf.
So he just goes with removing his coat and his pant,
standing there with a sleeveless banion that reaches barely his hips.
The cold hit him, shivering, he raises his eyes to his wolf, which are aimed at his naked legs.
Arousal fills the air, making Tae whimper and hide his front.
He hears bones cracking, an unbearable pain shooting inside him. The pain of his mate.
He looks over to see the wolf changing, each bone-breaking, growling at the pain. Tae walks forward to help but the wolf glares at him with red eyes, which makes
Tae cower back The pain tears him apart, as he closed his eyes and waits for it to happen sooner.
When the sounds of growling and whimpering stops, he looks over to his mate and finds him laying, curled inside the streaming water of the lake.
He walks forward a few steps, only to halt when the water splashes as his mate rushes out of the water, standing straight in all his naked glory.
His heart stops in million pieces...
// I need to stop here, cuz the next parts may or may not have some NSFW scenes
// Don't be a silent reader, likes and qrts are appreciated!!
// And do share your thoughts, my dms are always open if not here.
Addiction and weirdness are all he feels these days. To the scent of this lavender..
A scent that 'white buffoon' always carries with it. Every time he inhales that scent, he can’t control himself, but to run in the direction
to see what it is that is maddening him. There are always attackers who carry this scent, mildly yet enough to make his insider run berserk.
Attackers who always hurt him, wound him, and scare him. He tries his best to run away from them, coming back
To the white buffoon and nuzzling in its fur.
But now stands here the same male he saw a few days back. The male with blue eyes, looking at him, with the exact scent he wants to sniff forever but it’s stronger. His insides do some weird stunts,
his whole body electrifying with the overwhelming yearning to just bury himself there underneath him.
Just like now, seeing him, staring at him, he feels weird enough to just do what his insider says.
Even if it is to break his bone…
His bones each snapping and mending is throbbing hard, but he feels the need to do this.
Maybe he can see the amused smile, He had on his face when they encountered before.. when he saw him straight in his eyes.
But now He is in distress.
Does he not like it when I change like him?
Is he gonna attack me too like the others?
Is thoughts pause, when the said male steps towards him.
No, he can’t.
He can’t come near him. Can’t let him see him in pain.
What if he thinks he is weak?
So instead he does what he is best at. He growls and glares at the male. And his plan works as He halts in his step and turns around, covering his ears.
The pain increases tenfold before it all stops as he falls inside the water, drowning the pain away..
He feels weak and drowsy, even breathing feels like a hurdle to him now.
He hears water burbling near him.
He is coming nearer.
He tries to stand with his knees weak and legs heavy. As he turns to see the male.
His vision is now clearer than when he was in his original form. More colorful. Those vibrations in his chest are here again. He can’t stop himself from seeing him.
Immense pain when he tries to run away from this threat.
Yes, this male is a threat to him.
To his Heart.
Making it beat rapidly every time he looks straight at him.
Tae stands there looking at his mate, his hair long enough till his torso, his face not visible yet, but those eyes are captivating.
They are green now, shining brightly through the sun's rays. Green eyes. He might be an alpha if he’s not a rogue.
His eyes roam, noticing those chiseled abs that are covered with fresh new scars with reddish lines around them. Some marks of knife and claws.
He wants to run his hands on his mate, touching him, feeling him.
He carefully steps towards him, one hand up
in the air, so as to not scare him away.
He is knee length in the lake when a hands circles his waist and pulls him forward.
He falls onto his mate's chest, both stumbling, but steps steady as they hold each other.
The Rogue holds the cloth near his hip in a grip, as he runs the other in his cheek and then to his hair.
He noses his jaw, tugging the hair back harshly. Tae gasps as his head fall back, rogue taking no time in sniffing his neck.
I plan on using uncensored words.. so please minors shoo away..
A wet tongue laps his neck, as currents buzz in his veins. He can’t ignore the hard-on poking his belly, lust blinding his eyes.
He feels his own raising north, painfully hard.
He looks at his mate's eyes, caressing his cheek, to his long lashes.
His lips, were red and inviting, badly wanting to suck and pull them between his own.
He feels the hand holding his waist roaming near his ass, momentarily squeezing it.
He moans in surprise when the rogue starts kneading the flesh,
and tugging it to pull him forward grinding against each other.
The cloth being a hindrance, the rogue wastes no time in pulling those off him, tearing them.
His undies being roughly tugged gives a painful pleasure to his cock, before they fall off him.
His legs tremble for the nth time, when their bare cocks brush together, as his mate continues his attack on his ass, his fingers nearing his entrance.
The feelings of his ass and his front getting attention, are too much for Tae,
as he falls in the arms of his mate
His human legs too weak to carry both of them, Rogue along with Tae fall into the river, emerging soon from it both chocking on the water
Tae starts laughing at his mate’s shocked reaction, who has an amused smile on him
The sun almost setting, dipping below the horizon.
Mr. cuddles, hopping and sniffing everything laid on the wet grass, momentarily raising one of its ears, turning its neck in every direction, and getting back to sniffing.
Both mates are seated side by side, on the rocks nearby the lake, one gazing at the sunset, and one gazing at the other.
Not touching, just relishing in each other’s presence.
But the inner turmoil can be sensed in the air,
by the way, the naked rogue ignores his hard-on, trying to make subtle skin contact with his human, brushing the bare skin then and then.
Tae trying his best to not feel another twinge of warmness, like he had moments before,
focusing his thoughts on the setting yellow fireball, hiding away behind the slopping mountains.
He looks to his side, to his mate, who whips his head in the opposite direction as if Tae has not noticed him checking him out.
He can’t stop his thoughts before the mouth speaks, “Do you talk..?”, he asks the rogue who turns back to him, tilting his head with a look of puzzlement.
No, it doesn’t matter to Tae. He’s thankful to the goddess for pairing him with a beautiful mate.
Tae holds the hand of his mate, with much more ease than what the wolf has been trying to do for an hour.
“You are my Mate”.
Facing the sunset, he speaks again, “Mates are blessings given by The Moon Goddesses.
She blesses everyone with a soulmate, uniting their souls with one another”, feeling like talking to himself, he looks back at those confused doe eyes again,
“She has blessed me with you. Paired me with you. We’re mates. Not yet mated”.
He scoffs, “Mated.. Mating happens when-“ Stops, face as red as Elmo doll, tries covering his face.
Wolf not liking his human hiding from him, pushes those hands away, tilting Tae's face to himself, eyes darting everywhere, causing the color to intensify more
They face each other, time flowing with no one noticing it.
Birds screeching pulls them away from each other. Tae knows it’s time to go back.
“I have to go..” as if he understood the meaning behind, the wolf holds him close, almost scooping him in his arms.
“I have to go or they won’t let me come back here”.
He hears the growl released near his chest, the wolf hugging his waist with his two hands.
Hot tears stream down his face, Tae squeezes his eyelids shut, hoping it would stop those tears from running down.
“I’m sorry.. but I’ll be back”, he utters in low voice, promising to himself more than to the wolf.
He pushes those hands holding him away, but the wolf tightens it more.
Tae tries moving back again, a loud growl ripping out his mouth,
eyes on the verge of turning red.
Tae laughs, caressing the frowns on his forehead, moving forward to kiss those glower away “I’ll be back soon”.
The rogue stiffens, his heartbeat heard out loud,
Tae took this chance to move out of the hold, looking at his mate once more, memorizing every detail of his face, and runs away to his pack, with cuddles hopping behind Tae.
Rogue seated alone, watches his human running away from him with that buffoon again..
Tae reached his pack ground, hands on his knees, panting hard. Cuddles keep circling his leg in a way to comfort him.
His entire body screamed at him, chest constricting in pain. He wraps his hands over himself and walks toward his house.
When he enters the veranda, he sees The Lee family on the sidewalk saying their goodbyes. He can’t go in there, weeping with wet clothes and hugging himself.
He ran to the side of his house, climbing up the workers' ladder to enter his room
through its window.The bunny was left behind. Tears pour from his eyes as he falls onto the bed.
The touches, the emotions he felt all too new yet can feel himself getting addicted to it. But now, everything washes out with the cold air hitting him.
He feels miserable for leaving his mate behind.
Footsteps were heard near his room. He rushes to his feet to hide, but not soon enough as the door opens fast to reveal Jimin. He was holding the rabbit, who immediately jumps down
and makes himself comfortable in the bed upon entering the room.
The sight of Tae and his tears, fills Jimin with sympathy for his friend. Tae shakes his head feebly before falling into Jimin's arms. His body trembles as he sobs harder.
Jimin holds him and pats his back, he patiently waits for his bear to calm down, who doesn't but sobs harder as time passes.
He cups Tae’s face in his hands,
“I don’t know what it is, but I hope this pain will go away soon, Taetae”.
Hiccuping a few times, Tae sniffs his button nose and hides in his best friend's neck.
“Just let me know this, Tae?”, Jimin asks again. Caressing his hair, “Will this end?”
Taehyung knows what he is talking about, a whiny hum was heard.
“Will it hurt you?”
His mind wanders to those doe eyes sulking at him for leaving, whining and mewling at him to rub his back now and then. No, his mate would never hurt him.
“Then I’m up for it. Will do anything to give you back your happiness”.
Taehyung halts, raising from his neck to look at him, “W-What..?”
Jimin sighs, “Tae, I realized this has something to do with your mate. And I guess he isn't somebody who our pack will acknowledge. So Yes, if he doesn't hurt you and
there is a chance of you getting back with your mate”, Jimin grabs a shawl from Tae's cupboard and ties it around his head,
“I’m ready to fight with everyone against everything”, he finishes with a kung-fu step.
Both hear a gruff from the rabbit who turns to face the other side of Jimin as if he got bored of this situation.
Tae laughs out. Jimin whines and jumps on the bed to attack the rabbit, which runs away to sit by the window.
He then kicks his legs in the air but smiles a little on seeing those boxy laughs again after days.
Tae stops on noticing this, clearing his throat, “No, we can’t do anything”, looking down, voice sulky again.
Jimin holds his hand, “What can be tougher Tae?
"Is he a witch?”, Tae scrunches his eyebrows shaking his head.
"A vampire? HUMAN?” “No, he’s not a human”, Tae pouts.
“He’s not a human too. What’s worse than those lowly creatures?”, Jimin ponders for a minute, before his mouth falls open,
"Wait a minute. Is he one of those Original characters who are cursed by the gods, accidentally created with enormous powers?
"Oh my god, if he is one of them, they sorry Tae. I can’t accept Villains inside our pack”. Jimin says, crossing his arms
“What the fuck Chim? No, he is not a bedtime story's villain” Tae morphs his face in disgust.
“Then what is he? I’ve mentioned every worst creature, and your mate is none of them. Why are you scared of your family meeting him,
“You are acting as if the Goddess paired you with that beast roaming in the woods-“, Tae hisses, gaining Jimin’s attention.
“ARE YOU FVCKING SERIOU---“
The two friends laid on their bed, Jimin rubbing the white fur that is snuggling in his shirt
for his warmth. Their thoughts running wild. Tae is scared of what Jimin is thinking right now.
“Is he 9 feet tall?” “No”
“Does he talk?” “No”
Springing up in his bed, “He has horns?!” “WTF? No, he doesn’t”
Jimin lays again, “Have you seen him in human form” “Yes”
“Yes”, face blushing hard. He turns his head towards Tae with a smug on his face.
“What is his c0ck size?”
“That’s it. Leave now. Before I castrate you”
“Okay! okay, calm down. I’ll be serious”, Jimin laughs it off.
A few moments of silence pass, “No but for real, is his c0ck big?”
“You are blushing. You have seen them”
“Why does it matter, now?” Tae pushes him off of him who is
desperately trying to see his face.
“Wait- did you two had any itty bitty moment there?” “No we didn’t. I didn’t even get to speak. I can’t even spend time with him in ease”.
Jimin falls silent, sitting beside Taehyung, whose lips start trembling.
“Should we try telling Mama?”
“No Chim they all hate Rogues”.
He shrugs, “Well, they have a reason to hate”.
Tae raises his head, “I've seen him. He won't dare hurt a single bee”
Jimin raises one of his eyes, “Are you sure?”,
He says promptly, then his mind recalls the night when he was chased and attacked, “Maybe.. but he listens to me. He can learn if he has someone to teach him”, Tae tries to get some valid point.
“Tae, they are rogues. They don’t understand anything.
They lack senses. That’s why they aren't included in the packs”.
Tae pouts, “But he is not like that. I swear” “Oh really, how many times have you met him before to believe this blindly?”
Tae looks down, his eyes stinging, Jimin is right.
But he knows he can trust the mate bond.
The bond connecting them together now yet slowly. His heart flutters at the thought of the bond. It's like someone receiving signals from the other end.
He places a hand over his chest, “I believe in him, Jimin. I don’t know how or by what. I and my omega are gonna trust our mate with our full being”
Is this boring
It was early in the morning, and Tae woke up with this overwhelming yearning to see his mate.
He doesn’t wait a minute more, wearing some shirt over himself, carefully descending the stairs to not let any sharp ears overhear him.
He slides into the kitchen, grabbing a bag and filling it with all kinds of fruits then to the laundry, grabbing some of his brother's clothes before taking off towards the wood.
While immersed in his flee, he doesn’t notice someone yanking the straps
of his bag and pulling him backward. Tae falls toward their chest and whips back to see Hobi, “Where are you going early in the morning?”.
“Uhh- to meet Mr. Cuddles?”, Hobi frowns tilting his head sideways,
Tae looks over his head to see cuddles munching something in the kitchen with no care in the world. ‘Ah this dumbo’, he thought.
“Hyung, I've to say this. Cuddles got someone pregnant and now I’ve to look after Mrs. Cuddles.
"She might get sick with no one beside her, she needs to eat something and my omega is being restless since knowing this situation.
"So please Hyung, let me go”, Tae says in a straight tone,
standing in attention and glaring when cuddles looked baffled at this onslaught, celery falling off his mouth.
Hobi looks concerned and nods his head after, “But you can’t go there alone without a warrior. Wait here I’ll come with you”.
Tae panics before rushing to stop Hobi, “I’m not going there alone, I’m going with Jimin”
“Oh Is he a warrior? the last I remember is him pestering Yoongi for pups so he could get free snacks..?”, he says, mocking Jimin.
“No Hyung. Omega’s doesn’t like any other alphas near them during their vulnerable moment. So yes I and Jimin will go there and safely return as soon as possible."
Hobi nods his head, scratching his neck.
‘Omega rabbit..?’ before he can ask,
Tae has gone too far.
He gets inside the house mumbling ‘from when did rabbits have sub genders? Why did no one tell me before?’.
He enters the kitchen to make some coffee when he sees Cuddles making a littering mess everywhere.
He yanks the rabbit's ears, “There your mate is pregnant, suffering in the cold and starving and you are here eating with no care.
"Go and stay with your mate and help her in time of need”, he yeets the rabbit outside and closes the door on its face.
The innocent little one stays there, scratching the door desperately to let him have his food.
(My heart is aching for cuddles wth)
Tae runs towards the lake which has already become their meeting point. He mindlinks Jimin about Hobi and asks him to go flow with the story.
He reaches the lake to see his mate already seated there on the rock, his legs dangling,
like he was waiting for Tae to appear.
Tae runs towards him, his heart fluttering at how the wolf ceases on seeing him. He throws himself over the wolf, who holds him, burying their face in each other’s scent.
“I missed you”, Tae says to which the wolf replies with a low grumble in his throat.
He misses him too. The laugh, the deep voice, the floral scent. In all, he misses him too. He doesn’t know what he is feeling.
How did he get attached to someone who he has never met before?
He just wants to hold him forever, away from every threat coming his way.
The wolf drew him close, practically pulling him in his lap and rubbing his face all over his cheeks, his jaw, his neck.
Tae feels himself getting aroused.. before the wolf pulls back, staring at his face and turning to his right.
Tae stares at him and then turns to the right to see if anyone is there. No one. He looks back at the wolf who gruffs and does the same again.
Confused Tae looked again at the woods, sniffing the air for any intruders. There’s no one.
Wolf having his patience runoff, pulls Tae flush towards him before, rubbing his cheeks on Tae’s lips.
'Oh My Goddess he is asking for a kiss'
Tae reddens before leaning in and giving a peck on his cheek. But his lips stay there, his heart palpitating at the contact with his mate.
He lets his lips brush before kissing him again. And again. And then kissing him with his tongue.
He sucks and nibbles his cheek. Tae flinches when something pokes him from below.
He falters at his very naked mate, pushing away from him.
“I’ve bought you some clothes”, he says attempting to get the clothes from his bag but doesn’t get to,
when the wolf pulls him forward hugging his waist and burying his face in the other’s belly.
It does weird things to his heart, mainly down there. He tries pushing Kook off again,
“Come on, let’s try clothes on-“ kook then pushes his head against his groin, just enough to see what happens beneath the clothes.
Tae grabs his mate’s hair, in a grip. His head falling back,
‘stop-p.. please-e.. stop’.
The wolf does stop. Turning his head again to the right.
Tae looks at the woods again. No one is there.
Is he asking for kisses again?
He leans down to kiss him,
when his wolf growls turning to his wolf form in an instant, secluding Tae behind him.
That’s when Tae smells another scent in the air.
An intruder. A threat.
I'm stopping it here.
Please like and qrt if like how this story is going!
Taehyung turned in the direction, a silhouette can be seen. Hiding behind a tree trunk.
An intruder, intruding their moment together.
A threat, not for Tae but for his mate. Because for Tae it's just his stupid childhood friend, Jimin,
who wants to inspect his mate.
His mate, upon noticing the intruder, snarls, elongating his canines with a stoic seriousness in his gaze. He growls to challenge the one hiding behind the tree, who peeks at them before hiding again.
Tae sighs, walking before the wolf, who grabs his pant in between his teeth, to not let him move any closer to the ‘threat’.
Tae rubs his fur, “It’s okay” and smiles at the wolf, who gruffs, but his instincts wary, ears pointed sharp, ready to attack anytime.
“Just come out, Chim. You are just making him more agitated”, Jimin holding the tree trunk, peeks one eye at them.
And when the rogue growls at him, he covers himself behind the tree, to hideaway.
Tae groans, walking further, grabbing Jimin by his ear and making him stand before his mate. Jimin stands there awkwardly, one leg over the other, fidgeting his hands in the front.
But the wolf’s eyes are on Tae, who is /touching/ a midget.
His throat rumbled in displease, gaining attention from both pairs of eyes. “Jimin, My mate,” he says to Jimin, before turning to his mate,
“This is my best friend from childhood. If you know what it is..” he frowns, “Anyway... Chim what are you doing here?
Is Yoongi hyung here too..?”
“Yoonie-e is not here-e... Why is he glaring at me-e?”, Jimin comments, his voice wavering, hiding further behind Tae.
“Yoongi Hyung is not here? Then did you come alone?”
“Yes, I did”
“You can’t be serious.
How can you walk alone in the woods, Fool?”
“Speak for yourself. And if Yoonie knows your brother would know too? Is it okay?”
“Ah.. yes.. wait—so you won’t tell Yoongi Hyung about this..?”
"Well, I didn’t say that particularly. Just, for now,
can't hide anything from him”
"Anything..? How about his lost chain you traded for ice creams?”
“Are you seriously bringing back that now?”, Jimin looks baffled, “It was gifted by that s!ut. And don’t forget that I know about your grade report fabrication?”
Rogue just look at these two humans babbling something, his head turning right from left to right.
Tae hisses, “How about you making out with Jungwon in middle school”
“I was not making out. We just pecked. Bish! What if I tell Luna
about your belly button pierci-"
They both halt when they hear sounds of bone-breaking, followed by a series of painful grunts.
Then there stands the rogue, with his uncaring nudity. Jimin gasps, running back to the tree, covering his eyes, " Noo..
My innocent eyes…”, hitting his head on the trunk and mumbling, “Yoonie, think about Yoonie.. my sweet Yoonie”.
Taehyung was perplexed, fuming at his mate, rushing to cover him.
Rogue frowns, because he just wanted attention from his human.
He pouts when Tae drags him behind a rock, pulls out a shirt, and shoves at him.
When his adorable mate looks at him with his doe eyes, he can’t help but coo at him.
He points to the shirt he’s wearing, then gives Joon’s shirt to the rogue,
who grabs it, instantly gasping at the weird scent.
Tae mentally smacks his head, taking back the shirt to scent it for his mate. He sniffs, Joon’s scent.. and smiles remembering how he wanted his brother's scent to be around for him to feel safe back then.
An annoyed gruff and pouty wolf brings him out of his memories.
He nuzzles his nose on the shirt and starts rubbing the fabric in his scent glands, his neck. Tae’s scent spreading in the air does make the rogue feel those weird emotions again.
A part of him aches, but it gives pleasure to him. He can’t stop his hand from touching his hardening length, as he hisses at the sensation.
Tae’s heartbeat reaches its peak, when he sees his mate’s eyes expressing the same emotion he is feeling now.
Oops Tw// slight NSFW so minors..
His own, hardens again, noticing where his mate's hands are.
He mind seeks attention on how his mate holds his length hissing everytime he runs his calloused hand.
Tae mouth waters, omega threatening to succumb to his mate.
Before he can lose control, he wears the shirt over his mate, inserting the hands and doing the same with the pants, pants which did not do enough to hide away his length.
Tae holds his mate's hands and walks him over to Jimin,
seated on a blanket in the middle of dandelions, various foods splayed across it, and him munching on an apple.
Tae leads his mate, more like carrying him because of his weak human legs.
As soon as they both settled down,
rogue pulled his human on his lap, nibbling the skin on his shoulder, and rubbing his nose right there.
Tae feels his mate sneaking his hand inside his shirt to get in contact with his skin. Tae allows, which then escalates
as the rogue pulls his shirt all over his chest, greedily touching his skin.
“Would you two stop being horny for a second? Mind the people trying to spend time with you”, Jimin utters in disgust but smirks when his best friend's face reddens in embarrassment.
Wolf growls at this to which Jimin barks at him and in return scares away when the rogue eyes glow red.
The rogue continues his roaming hands on Tae, nearing his nipple, “Stop…”, Tae whines, embarrassed at his friend witnessing everything with judging eyes.
Jimin fake gags, turning away to continue enjoying his apple.
Tae picks up a blueberry and shares it with his mate, and determines he doesn’t like it by his facial reaction. Then moves on to feed him his favorite, the strawberries. He likes them.
After a few strawberries, he feeds him bananas, at which rogue grabs them from his hand and dumps it in his mouth with avarice. There... his favorite is banana.
Pls like and qrt if you enjoy them. The silence is scaring me
They all eat in silence until when there’s one banana left.
With the way the ends of the banana were held by two competitors, Tae concluded, "The two don't get along".
His first glimpse of his mate smiling widely is when he sides up with his mate
instead of the midget, by taking the fruit out of Jimin’s hold and handing it over to the rogue.
The smile, that clenches his insides and held his breath away. The way his nose scrunched with two adorable teeth peeking out.
‘𝘉𝘶𝘯𝘯𝘺’, he calls him,
and his inside sparkles when he feels his emotions being returned by a door he opened through his mind.
Rogue turns his head to Tae, face scowling with puzzled eyes stopping at his lips.
‘𝘉𝘶𝘯𝘯𝘺.. 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳 𝘮𝘦?", rogue’s face delights
his smile widening, the smile with his nose adorably scrunching. “You look like a bunny!”, he shouts flinching his bunny as well.
“No, no… I’m sorry. Please don’t stop smiling”, Tae wants to see his mate smiling for as long as he can.
He sees how the rogue freezes, his lips in a weird shape.
‘𝘖𝘩, 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘦’, Tae hugs the rogue's neck, leaning on his chest.
‘𝘔𝘺 𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘳𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦 ’, he looks over his mate,
who is still smiling at him.
‘𝘏𝘦𝘺, 𝘣𝘶𝘯𝘣𝘶𝘯... 𝘐’𝘮 𝘛𝘢𝘦𝘩𝘺𝘶𝘯𝘨’,
introducing himself, he adores how his face brightens on the name. but the next seconds the rogue face morphs into an unknown feeling and is left unnoticed by Tae.
He shivers, roots of his hair raising, as he feels those captivating eyes are at his lips. And he does what his inner being tells him. He closes the gap between them, lips dancing in tension.
Tae feels those soft pillowy lips against his own,
nibbling his lower and tugging in his teeth, releasing and repeating it. He cards his fingers on his hair, clumped yet silken, as they breathed in each other.
Tae's tongue swipes his lips for an entrance, unable to stop the emotions
he has been controlling so far. He bites off the other's lower lip, who grunts, allowing him to slip inside as he demanded.
It lasted long for them to separate in dismay, to catch their breath.
Still, both felt the kittenish licks of their tongues on each other. Tae could get addicted to those milky lips and won’t complain.
Not seperating, as the licks turn to nibbles, from his lips to his ears and to his neck..
Deep in their sensual moments, they didn’t notice poor Jiminie slipping away from the place he was suffocated with pine and vanilla mixed with lust.
Tw// a bit hot in here, so minors..
In the middle of the woods, among the virtuous dandelions, any can see the image of two bodies merged as one, Tae still on his mate’s lap.
The mates engrossed in each other, velvet heat of midday sun caressing their skins, as their hands fought,
unsure of where to halt.
Lewd moans fill the space, rogue lapping his tongue on his favorite honey-toned skin. He latches on to the lips, abusively sucking on them and then moving towards the neck.
Tae felt himself being succumbed to his mate, as he felt the other attack his throat.
The rogue allowed himself to roam his hands on Tae’s body, sliding over his shirt, then running them in his back, squeezing his hips.
Tae shivered when he felt a long stripe of lick in his sternum and moans loud with a whimper when the other hand squeezed his ass cheek.
He can’t help himself as his body twitches and flushes down, moaning loudly, rubbing their hard-ons.
The sound sweet to his ears, he fondles the flesh hard, grunting every time the one on top rubs down.
He holds on to those hard muscles in his hands, red scratch marks following his nails. His head falls back as his mate
starts on his measured thrusts up near his taint.
Rogue roughly tugs his hair, pulling him forward to suck on his neck, coloring purple all over. The pain is pleasured as Tae continues rubbing them together, not wanting to slow down.
His heart takes a beat rest when his shirt was ripped off him.
He scrapes his teeth against the rogue’s skin while the wild hands find their way to his bare chest, tugging and fondling all way.
When those stop at his sensitive nipples, flipping it hard, Tae hisses pulling back to see him scrunching his nose mischievously, as well acting innocent.
Their sensual feral moments come to halt when Tae ruffs the other’s head.
He grunts, closing his eyes shut as the pain courses but soothes soon enough to the head kisses he receives from his human.
The emotions he feels for the other, who is adoringly looking at him with his ever-known boxy smile are surreal to him.
And the selfish greed that follows to keep that smile on his human is terrifying.
He holds the hands that cup his face, leaning to the touch with closed eyes, immersing in the warmth of the hand, sighing.
Tae chuckled and kissed his forehead a few more times, “Gosh, I can get used to this”.
He hears a groan from his mate who turned back and huffed in annoyance. Tae looked over him to see cuddles tugging his shirt in between its teeth.
Tae scooped him in his arms, placing him in the middle, and looked up at his mate, who looked at the fluff ball in distaste.
Tae felt warmth spread in his chest, as he leaned down to boop their noses, rubbing them a little,
“Stop being Jealous.. I’m your Mate. I belong to you”
Even though rogue doesn’t understand what it meant, He can sense his heart fluttering and cozy at the words.
Tae looks up at the sky, the sun moved south. He needs to leave before anyone gets suspicious.
He felt bitter at the thought of leaving here, here his home, being with his mate, and their little cozy time.
He looked up to the rogue, who frowned, spreading his pine scent in the air, nuzzling in his neck, and rubbing his cheeks in Tae's scent gland.
Tae's insides ached in happiness knowing how his mate is comforting him when his soured lavender scent was splayed in the air.
He pulled the other’s chin up to look at him and sees those dejected eyes as if he knows what Tae gonna say to him.
“I need to leav-“, then cut off by kisses to his lip. “Come on. I need to lea-“,
Wolf being adamant, pullrd his lower lip to himself.
He pushed him by his chest away, leaving here getting harder as minutes pass by, “I will be back with a lot of bananas then”
His face brightens at it, smiling wide enough for his cheeks to hurt. Tae pinches his bread cheeks, “Bunny”
He proceeds to get up from his mate’s lap but staggered when he heard giggles. He froze,standing halfway, and looks back at him, to his giggling mate
He tugs him up, planting a loud smooch on his lip, a smile carving his mouth, “My adorable mate!!”.
Rogue watches his mate walking away in the same path he leaves every time, giggling once more when he stops in his track turning back to look at him,
then running away from there.
He recalls the day he spent with his human. His emotions. The talks...
He smiles at the thought, his insides bursting with butterflies as his throat strains with his mouth pronouncing in a hoarse voice,
Tae walks back to his pack, bouncing in his steps, on the pathway familiar to him. He loved being with his mate. His hands touch over the ripped shirt, only half-covering his chest. He knows he can always run up to Jimin and can ask for a spare one
since it's near the border.
His hands then slide over his neck, wincing at the hickeys his mate decorated him with. But he cares less about it, as again he can ask Jimin to do something about it.
He skips his way, his walk jumpy with his hair bobbing in his way. He looks over to the sky, clouds covering the sunrays with the mood becoming gloomy.
The pathway turning to dark with leaves whispering loudly.
His heart picks up a speed when he hears distant howling.
He mindlessly searches for his mate in their link calling him over, but all he gets in return is empty emotions.
His body stiffens as the howling gets nearer,
his legs sprinting in any direction to be free from this obvious danger coming his way.
He feels targeted as he senses every way is blocked by someone coming his way. His lungs fell shut, with dread surrounding him.
Because he now his visions adjust to many wolves circling him. And what scares him most is the red eyes they all had.
And his mate is nowhere to reach
Several wolves emerge from the shadows and circle Tae. They stand ready to attack him with their crooked canines.
To those rogues, any one had to die for all that matters to them is death. He shifted to his wolf form and stood on all fours.
As the cold air struck his white fur, he shivered and trembled. Even when afraid, his stance is powerful and brawny, releasing a growl as his brother thought him.
'Do not show your weakness to your opponents'
However the rogues did not back down,
instead, they snarled at him as they approached. They surround him from all sides, Tae was given no choice but to remain still, neither backing away nor can move forward.
A scream of agony escapes Tae’s lip as one nearest him pounces on him.
Playing with the rabbit he stays near the lake, exactly where his mate left behind.
He feels a sudden panic when some sensations tug at him as if someone calling for him. He lays there, not knowing who or what it is,
assuming it is one of those weird flashy things on his mind like it happens any other day.
The pain in his insides, the aching head driven by the urge to follow the sound are too much for him, and he takes off for the wood.
As he nears, his favorite smell his human carries with him is filled in the air, accompanied by threats he can sense.
He takes off in the direction in an attempt to see his human, only to find a wolf,
Tae waits for the painful claws to plunge into him, but instead sees another black giant wolf, similar to the rogues yet with a dominating aura, fly above him, clawing the throat of the rogue that was about to attack him.
Mewling, Tae called for his mate, who had the attacker submitted below him, his feet on its throat.
Tae’s heart shatters when his mate looks back at him with a maddening glare, before turning to the rest of the rogues to attack,
disappearing in the fog, into the darkness of the woods.
He just waits for his mate to return, leaning on a tree trunk. He can’t shift back, his body weak from the adrenaline he had before.
A few minutes passed, and his nose gets a whip of pine scent,
turning his head he sees his mate advancing towards him. He runs to him, only to stop at the deep growl rumbling from his throat.
His mate looks at him with so much hatred, eyes glowing red, but doesn't attack him.
He calls for him, “bunny..”, his mate looks everywhere, to find the voice.
He tries again, “bunbun.. it’s me Taehyung.. here”, as his mate stares at him, a look of hatred replaced by puzzled, “Your mate..”
He took careful steps towards him, feeling the hot breath of his mate in his fur.
When he reaches him, he boops his mate's snout with his own, waiting for any reactions. When he gets no rampage or anger in return, he starts by rubbing their furs together
and then nuzzling on his neck.
Tae nuzzles his whole body under his mate’s chin, his snow tail curling on the other's face, turning around and coming back to rub their faces together.
His mate, feeling warm, proceeds to lick the fur,
humming and purring at the sweet scent of lavender spreading in the air.
Tae doesn’t control when his body shifts back to his human form, laying down with his mate hovering over him.
His bunbun shifts back then, hugging his human, licking and giving kisses all over his face.
“I know you won’t understand this but Goddess I love you so much”, he says to the one on top who nuzzles their forehead together, grunting at those words.
His eyes falling heavy, as the tiredness takes over, he shuts them out.
The next morning he wakes up to his whole body aching, head spinning as if he's been hit by a hammer. He looks at the surroundings, beige walls, and windows with white curtains.
It is his mother's chamber, the one she used when his parents were not yet mated.
'How did he end up here?'
He recalls the night with rogues, his mate rescuing him, falling asleep in his warmth. He spent a whole day in the woods.
'Then how did he end up here?'
His thoughts disjoint, mind zipping from one unrelated speculation to another.
His eyes wide in terror, and with cold sweats, he runs down the stairs, to see his whole family seated in their living room, all targetted at Jimin, who looks guilty.
Tae can feel his heart rate accelerating as he nears the mini-conference in the middle of the house. The muscles in his limbs tensed with each step he took.
“Oh Tae, just in time. Come and sit here”, Hobi pulled him towards the couch.
Beside him sat Jin who is now glaring at him and by the side of him sat Jimin, not even risking a glance at him. Parallel to him is his parents, grimacing.
The tension in the room was palpable. His father clears his throat, signaling his mate to talk.
Luna pointing at Tae asks, “Are you feeling okay now?”. Her voice was soft unproportioned to the tension deafening the room.
Tae side glances at Jimin, who still has his head down, to Yoongi’s emotionless face yet with looks
as if he could search the depth of his soul.
He looks back at his mom, who rises her eyebrow at him, intimidating that she is still waiting for his answers. “Yeah, I’m Fine”, Tae speaks loudly hoping his tone doesn’t give away his nervousness.
He hears his mother hum then looks at him curiously, “Is there anything you want to say..?”, Tae's face heats up, and he can feel the sweat running down his face and neck. He rubs both his sweaty hands on his jeans,
“Like What..?”, he drags his answer like a question.
“Anything you don’t want to hide from the family”, her voice still calm, yet anyone who knows her personally can tell she is demanding her answers. Tae whips his head slowly in direction of his best friend,
who is now looking at him, biting his lips but forcing his head down when Yoongi lays a hand on his shoulder, eyes soaring on Tae.
He turns his head to look at his mother again, then to his father who has his legs crossed over each other,
with dominating aura surrounding him.
“No, there’s nothing-g. Nothing! What’s there to say.. You guys are scaring me..”, eyes roaming over everyone in the room, stopping at Hobi who sighed shaking his head.
“Where were you last night, Tae?”, Namjoon's voice thundered the room.
Tae cowered in himself. He can’t say anything nor can lie about it. He shakes his head, swallowing multiple times,
“I-I don’t remember-r..”
“You don’t? what do you mean you don’t?! You went out early in the morning and still didn’t turn up at night!
"We were searching for you everywhere, only to come back empty-handed to see Jimin and Jin sneaking you in”.
Tae whips his head so fast at Jin who now takes his turn in slumping down.
“Look at me!”, commanding at Tae, who mewls and whines, his eyes turning blue, hiding away by letting his omega take the blame.
His mother holds Joon by his arms hushing him
to be calm.
Joon sighs, “There’s so much weird thing happening here, Tae. We were still trying to find the cause of the pain you were in the last time you went to the woods. But you don’t seem to care about it. Right?”
He asks again, “Where were you last night?”
Tae knows he can’t just escape with a lie now.
His mind ragged and before he could reply, “I said we were just having an Omega night with ourselves”, Jin said in an annoying voice.
Namjoon turned to glare at his mate, “You will not speak-“ “Don’t you dare use that voice against me. No matter what your rank is, I’m still elder than you and I’m your mate.
"You will give me the respect that I deserve. And as I said,
we were having our Omega night to ourselves and Tae got drunk so we carried him to his room”
Joon opened his mouth- “and before you speak again, we were taking him to his room and not sneaking him in his OWN ROOM!”
Jin's voice left everyone in a state of silence, not daring to speak. Joon exhaled and turned his back to the group.
Jin looked at the Alpha and Luna, who were stunned to the point of hanging their jaws.
Jin cleared his throat, bowing to the leaders of the pack “I’m sorry I got carried away. Just wanted to teach my husband some manners on how to treat the omegas”.
Alpha Chan Yeol then sat straight, adjusting his suit to look decent in an awkward manner.
“No.. no.. it's- yeah.. you should-- Correct the bad manners then and then”, the Alpha cleared his throat before pushing himself up from the couch.
“Okay let’s leave it as it is. Tonight we have a ball to attend. Alpha Lee has welcomed us to his pack.
"We need to leave as soon as possible” his mother then ushered everyone to do their work.
His father called him, “And Tae, you will not go anywhere near the woods. Be it that bunny or Jiminie. You are not allowed to go beyond the main area” “But papa-"
“You will not disobey my words. No more discussion on this topic. Get ready for the ball”, with this his father left the room.
Tae rolled his eyes, only to meet Yoongi who is still looking at him strangely, then at Joon who looks suspiciously at him.
Tae gulps, running towards his room before, “Taebear”, his mother calls him.
“You know you can tell me anything right? We will support you no matter what it is, Tae”, she smiles adoringly at her sweet son, caressing his face,
nodding her head a few times at him to speak to her.
Tae just smiles back, “It's nothing, Mother. There’s really nothing”, he assures but he can see her smile dimming slightly on her lips.
But she beams again, patting his shoulder, “Then that’s good. Go on and get dressed”
Even after Tae left to his room and the mumbling voices in the back stopped as everyone dispersed, the Luna stayed there fidgeting with her ring.
A guard entered the room,
“You called for me, My Luna”.
“You will stay beside my son and will report back everything to me. Without him knowing”
“I will do the same, Luna”.
She swayed her hand in the air, gesturing for him to leave.
“Let’s see what you’re up to, My little bear”
Tae after minutes of waiting in his room, gets down to Joon’s, hoping to see the other two omegas’. And there sat, a furiously pouting Jimin with Jin consoling him.
Tae entered the room with guilt spreading in his chest.
Jin turned his head towards the door, looking at Tae, he crossed his arms in his chest glaring at him.
Tae gulped and stood before the two, lips jutting out and his hands at the back.
Jin hummed to which Tae peeked at him,
“What are you waiting for? You’ve got a lot of explaining to do..”
Tae darted between the two and trusting in his Jiminie he spoke, “Mr. Cuddles made Mrs. Cuddles pregnant. Look-“
“The nerve this kid has!” Jin stood in an instant,
pinching the earlobe of Tae's,
“You found your mate but never intended to tell us. When we ask, you are lying!
"At least to them, I expected. But not to me?! I even shared my first kiss till mating Joon, but you can’t even say that you found your mate!”,
Jin whisper shouted, with Jimin snickering in the back.
“Hyung, I-I” hissing while grabbing his wounded ear, he pouts at Jin. “So.. Who is he?”
He looks at Jimin, ‘Aish. This minx’.
“Yes, he is a rogue. But he’s not like everyone says.
He is sweet and cute and even Jimin met him! They are quite good friends.”, he smiles, his hands swinging in his sides as he always does when he’s in a happy mood.
Jin looks mortified, before turning to Jimin
Jimin who looks the same as him, mouth actioning something at Tae.
Tae returns by asking ‘what’. “Are you two kidding me??” Jin asks with puzzlement.
That’s when Tae gets struck with the reality. Jin knows he found his mate but doesn’t know who he is.
Looking at their reaction and silence is enough for Jin to conclude the truth.
“Your mate is a Rogue?”, hearing Tae hum with his head hung low, Jin falls to the bed, his heartbeat picking up a speed.
He covers his mouth with his hand,
“The Goddess be better fvcking playing with us”
Tae tells him. Everything. Everything about how he met him. How his mate reacted upon seeing him. How he almost spent every day with him.
He tells him how amazingly adorable his mate is.
He waits for Jin to speak, to voice his thoughts out, kneeling before him, holding onto his legs.
“Is he the rogue who hurt your brother?”, Tae pulls back,
“Wait- was Hyung attacked by a rogue before?”
“Yeah, he was left unconscious for days”, Jin sadly chuckles.
“How do I not know that?” Tae asks him, looking at Jimin whose eyes are round in realization.
“You were sick, Taetae” Jimin says but Tae has no memories of what they are talking about.
“What do you mean I was sick? I don-“
“You were so sick and we were afraid that telling about Joon will affect you more. So we didn’t. and if we are talking about the
same rogue, better get him away from Joonie’s sight”
Confused Tae raises a question, “But why did no-”
“We’ll talk about this later, we have a ball to attend. So get ready fellow omegas, we need to flaunt the beauty our pack holds”.
The older interrupts him before rushing out of the room. Jin really has his way of shutting people out.
“Wait Hyung! How did you even get me back here?” but Jin is already out of the room, he turns to Jimin who tiredly sighs
Jimin was collecting the clothes that he had hung out to dry.
He hears a grunt, turning his back, he sees Tae’s mate, the rogue running his way.
He feels fear shaking him up. Yoongi is not here, left when Joon called for him.
‘Is the rogue coming back for revenge on taking his banana?’
But he was the one who ate it not him. His knees tremble before he sees a very naked someone on his back.
It’s Tae. “Omg! Taetae! What did you do to him?” he shouts at the wolf,
who angrily growls at him while laying Tae on the ground with such soft movements.
Jimin rushes towards him in panic and scoffs when he hears snores.
“This bish”, he kicks him in the shin, backing away when the wolf bares his teeth, covering Tae behind him.
Jimin raises both his hands in the air, showing his intent is to not hurt him.
His heart warms on seeing the wolf licking his mate, where he just kicked him.
He kneels on the ground and then carries him, despite the wolf's protest on who-knows-what.
“Oh shut up! You bought him to me because you trusted me. Don’t act so dramatic!”, Rogue grunts, shaking his head as if he was bickering back with him.
After laying him on the couch, he turns to the rogue, “Okay! You may leave now. Before my mate comes”,
he says to the rogue, who just sat near Tae, laying his head on the couch, watching him sleep
“This is not the time to be this cute to your mate. GO! Before my mate comes or we'll all be doomed”, he pulled the ears of the wolf, dragging him towards the door.
Feeling irritation to the best of him, he snarls at the human. Jimin jumps at it,
“Then leave on your own! If you wanna see your mate again, leave before anyone sees you”
The wolf looks back at his mate, his ears falling to his side, then to Jimin.
An annoying grunt leaves past him as he takes off to the wood not before licking Tae’s toes again.
/Saying his ‘goodbye’/
Jimin links Yoongi to ask where he is and freezes on hearing them all searching for Tae.
He looks back at Tae, sleeping peacefully in his naked gloriousness.
He strode towards his room, getting a pair of cloth, and dressing Tae up.
He hears someone nearing his front door,
“Jimin! Did you see Taehyung?”
He halts and whines,
“Jin Hyung… Halmi”
/read help me/
Tae’s mind ponders over how he has never known his brother was attacked by a rogue and was unconscious for days.
He leaves the room scurrying over to the office room located on the west wing of his house.
On entering he hears whispers, he walks closer to find Joon and his mother talking something in a serious tone.
He steps a foot inside, “… Tae needs to be put down, Mother. He can’t be walking anywhere near the woods”. Joon says, his back to the door.
“As your father said, he will not be allowed beyond the main city. But you do not get to use your Alpha voice on him”, he hears his mother scold him but she is nowhere in sight of him.
He smirks at his Mother siding with him.
But his face turns serious at what his brother utters next.
“I’m just worried Mother. Some weird creatures are lurking near our borders. What if it’s one of the Lycaon-“, his mother hisses interrupting his Hyung.
“Stop worrying. They aren’t alive anymore”
'Weird creatures lurking?'
'Is he talking about his mate?'
'Or the rogues which attacked him?'
'What are Lycaons?’
“No, Mother. We are not sure about that. At least of Him. Not until I see His bones burnt down to ashes. What if He comes back to claim what belongs to Him?”
“He won’t. You and your Father made sure of that by burning every one of these creatures.”
‘Who are they talking about?'
'Burning the bones to ashes?’
A new wave of pain engrossed him, sucking his insides away. His eyes became dizzy.
He sees his mother in his sight, knocking Joon’s head, “And you will not talk in Alpha voice to your baby brother again! You hear me?!”
He sees his brother hissing in pain, getting away from his mother.
But what they talk about is not heard as
Tae feels his eyesight blurring, he runs back to his room with his legs turning heavy to even withhold him.
He sees visions, of fire burning to the sky and a loud wail near him.
He grabs his head, as he senses someone rushing towards him from the fire.
It’s his Hyung, his Joonie Hyung, but much younger. He is speaking to him, caressing his tears away.
'Is it him wailing in midst of the fire?’
His words are incoherent to him and all he focuses on is the fire burning on something. Or someone.
He gasps, desperate for air, his lungs shutting on him. He fists his chest, hitting himself, for his lung to function.
He sees white spots of stars in his eyes before everything shuts off as he falls into his bed, caving to the dizziness.
Tae feels shaken up to consciousness. His mother walked into his room, to his bath then to his wardrobe, taking some of his clothes and throwing them over to him.
“When I say something, everyone obeys and then there’s you, to prove me wrong.
Get up soon and get ready for the ball”.
Tae squints his eyes, his head still pounding. His omega needs his mate now, “Mom can’t I skip?”
“Don’t you dare give me any excuses! Today is important. Every pack is gathering in the ball. You should be there...,
and if by luck you might even see your mate”.
His mother innocently looked at him, but Tae can sense her bribing him by her words.
He groans falling on the bed again. His mother clasps his legs, pulling him off the bed and scooting him to the bath,
“You better refresh and come out soon, or I’m sending my maids in”
“No! geez. Give me my clothes”, he snatches his clothes and shuts the door of his bath.
He soon refreshes and wore the dress his mother selected for him.
A moss-green blouse, personally hand-sewn for him with a beaded scooped neck.
It was an open-backed sleek cloth covered by a sheer overcoat, paired with a high-waisted white pant, close-fitting near his hips.
Looking at himself in the mirror, his mind wanders to what happened before. The visions that appeared to him.
‘Is it memory?'
'Or just him imagining something?’
He knows it isn’t something from his imagination, but from his memories,
yet it confuses him how he doesn’t remember anything like that happened to him.
He saw his brother there, carrying him away from the burning fire when he was desperately trying to reach it.
He then recalls his brother talking about burning
some creatures to ashes. Lycaons.
‘What are they?’
He has never heard of that word.
He needs his mate now, at least tell him to not wait for him as he will not be coming to meet him today.
He mind links him, knocking on the door of his mate’s soul.
“𝘉𝘶𝘯𝘯𝘺.. 𝘉𝘶𝘯𝘣𝘶𝘯, 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳 𝘮𝘦?”, in the next instant he is filled with overwhelming emotions of happiness. His mate knows who is talking to him.
Tae can sense him howling through his link. He chuckles at his mate's adorableness.
“𝘏𝘦𝘺 𝘣𝘶𝘯𝘣𝘶𝘯,.. 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘭𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵?”, and there, another wave of happiness engulfs him.
He can mentally picture his mate wagging his tail in happiness.
He giggles and then his face sours,
“𝘉𝘶𝘯, 𝘐 𝘸𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘣𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺..”
He waits for some time, his happy emotions dimming slightly, then comforts surrounding him.
Despite not understanding what he's trying to say,
his mate is comforting him cause his mood turned sour.
He sighs trying again,
“𝘐 𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦..”
And just like that after the word ‘leave’, everything stops.
In seconds all the emotions stream back at him with vexation and despair.
He can hear his mate howling with sorrow now.
His chest tightens,
“I’m sorry.. but I’ll come back-“
He feels like a door shut on him.
His link ends in a broken wire.
He wheezes, chest hurting more and more as he desperately calls for his mate..
But the rogue is long gone from him.
The pain was nothing new to Tae, but experiencing it each time left him with the same intensity.
His eyes soaring red and his head with a dull ache, he glanced at himself in the mirror. His hands with slight tremors wiped his tears away.
The disoriented feelings of disappointment made him wary as he applied fake blushes to hide his whitened cheeks.
Tae jolted at someone knocking on the door of his bath. The scent of fresh apples and melted marshmallows gave away that is, His Jin Hyung.
“Tae, everyone is ready to head off, are you?”, waiting for a couple of minutes, rubbing his own thoughts, he opened the door, humming to the question he was asked, he descended the stairs.
Jin sighed at the burnt pheromones smothering the space.
Avoiding every other eye contact, he entered the solarium where the others waited for him.
Squinting his eyes to the daylight entering through the glass, he notices four carriages waiting for them, and Tae was meant to share his ride with his parents.
Instead, he strode towards the second one where Namjoon was waiting for his mate to get on, and exchanged his ride with him, wanting to ride with Jin.
No one denied, ‘Perks of being the last kid’, he mocked himself,
not giving much thought to the burnt lavender spreading everywhere he went.
From his peripheral vision, he glimpses how Jimin pouts to join them and how Jin stops him, his head bobbing slightly, as he gets on with Tae following him in.
Though he insisted on getting on with Jin, he remained silent the all way, his head laid on the other’s shoulder, eyes focused on the trees moving behind them.
His mind leaps over, in a tangled mess of thoughts reeling.
He has many questions to ask but is scared of the answers he might get, the obvious answers even he can assume.
Though he needs those words said out loud by someone, to stop what he’s feeling, one of the sole reasons to share his ride with Jin,
is the reason to come along with his family, leaving his mate behind.
“Hyung?”, Tae calls him, breaking the quietude filling the confined space. He feels Jin turning his head down to look at him.
Seeing hesitation on his features, “Ask right away, Tae”
Straightening his torso, his eyes found Jin, his mouth opening and closing to empty gestures.
After contemplating what to ask first, he chose what he wants to hear first.
“Lycaons?... Hyung, what are they?”
Jin hissed, the familiar word bleeding so many emotions in him.
The past he dreads to be unwritten. Contorting his face stoical,
“The thing you have to know is they are Evil. Created to end us”
Jin knows he confused his cousin more than before,
and he knows better than to not disclose anything about it.
He sighed and laughed it off, “It was long back when they were created and even got destroyed. More like our bedtime nightmare stories..”
The fake laugh that followed filled the space with awkwardness, as Tae furrowed his brows in more inquisitiveness.
“It’s not worth the conversation”
“I still want to know-"
Tae froze at the sudden rise of frustration from Jin.
Exhaling the hot breath, Jin utters in a soft voice contrary to before, “Joon. He may know. Or any alpha’s apparent”
Tae just turns his head to the sky, watching it moving along with them.
Honestly, he isn't interested in the Lycaons.
It’s the words of his brother, ‘burning them’, which triggered some memories.
Memories as he wants to conclude it.
The carriage comes to a halt in front of the manor covered with lights of stars.
The door to the side of Tae was opened by Lee Jae sung, the pup alpha standing there with a bright smile on his lips.
“Welcome to the gathering, Taehyung-ssi! I hope the ride was not much of a hassle coming here!”
Tae was urged to deny him of the hands stretched towards him to hold.
But the latter’s happy face and the curious looks of the others glancing at their
interactions left him to hold on to that hand.
He may have also heard the exhales of relief of everyone who stood there as he held on to Jae-sung.
Tae tried too hard to stay calm, as Jae-sung curled Tae’s arms on his biceps and walked him inside the manor.
Despite the irritation, he felt pride swelling in his chest, as everyone on seeing The Kim Family, froze and scrambled away as they made way for them to enter,
while some cowered behind as Joon entered the Banquet Hall.
The whispers became perceptible as they saw Lee Jae-sung, Alpha Apparent of the Lee Pack holding hands with Kim Taehyung, Omega son of The Kim’s.
As it may sound, it is a contentious issue if two strong packs merge together.
One is known for its warriors and the battles they won over gore creatures and the other is known for the strong leadership and protection they offer their pack.
He darted his eyes at Joon smiling and shaking his hand with the guests approaching him,
and with the other holding Jin by the waist, hands firm and defensive.
His eyes move to halt on Yoongi feeding Jimin with some fritters and smiling as he swipes the hair from the pouty boy’s forehead.
He glances at his father and Hobi Hyung
with a similar warming stance with their mates.
His chest is once more pained at the void opening further. He didn’t link his mate again afraid of getting rejected the same.
His eyes turned misty with the queasiness rising from his bile,
as continued to give an awkward insincere smile to anyone who wants to catch up on him.
Jae-sung attentive to Taehyung’s expression, excuses themselves from every guests, to give the other the easiness he deserves right the moment.
He smiles at Tae’s doubtful face, holding the arm, and rushes towards the upstairs.
Reaching up, Tae gasps when the alpha takes him to the balcony, the peachy sky welcoming the lull crescent ball any time.
He was mesmerized by the view of a small fountain filled with serene water flowing smoothly,
The area surrounded by greenish grasses with white flowers almost dreading away with the sun setting.
Tae closed his eyes listening to the sounds of the water, mind going insensate to anything except the rushing sounds from the fountain.
He was hypnotized by his surroundings that he doesn’t notice Jae-sung looking at him with so much fondness.
His eyes open as he turns to look at the other, smiling widely, lips shaping to a boxy grin, “This is so beautiful, Jae-sung sshi!”
“Yeah it is”, he sighed leaning over the railings, “This was once a place where every Alpha warrior gathered
and was trained to protect their packs. This manor became our home as we stayed here until the leaders approved us to be good enough”
“Was? What about now? Did Joon Hyung train here too?”
Jae-sung laughed at his wide eyes,
“Yes, Joon Hyung was here as well with every other Alpha’s who wanted to be a Warrior. But it stopped after..”, he trailed weighing his next words,
“...leaders preferred their people training on their pack instead of here. They felt unsafe here"
“Oh.. But this place is so beautiful to be a training field”, Tae exclaimed. Chortling at him,
“Do you want any cakes?”
the answer was immediate making the alpha chuckle, embarrassing the omega even more.
As the alpha returns to the dining to get his snack, Tae relishes in the evening chill air, brushing on his face.
His eyes roam, taking in all the beauty of his surrounding, stopping at something hiding behind the bushes of plants.
He peeks his head over, a small building, old and dusty, yet intrigued Tae, plucking at his chest.
Tae walks to the left side of the balcony, tiptoeing to see the building, a gazebo to be exact, now a little clearer to his vision than before.
His lungs start to ache with nostalgic emotions surging in him.
His mind flashes at two boys, one barely ten running after the other much older than him, laughing loudly at each other.
The pain became prominent and the urge to go near the old building flooded him.
The next seconds were blurry,
as Tae’s legs take him down towards the entrance, panting for air as he pushes away the people from his way, running over to the place that makes his whole body ache.
He dashes towards the gazebo, his blurred vision noticing how the
colorful greenish path turns to dried draught ground.
Hearing the familiar laugh again, he looks back at the same boys running, now holding their hands, faces edgeless yet he feels as if he knows them.
He stops before the old construction.
Burnt charcoal marks on the walls.
Some parts wrecked to an open end.
Tae gasps for the air, a stabbing pain ripping through him.
The memories rushed back causing deep aches inside his bones.
Holding a broken end of a stone for support,
he sees Jae-sung sprinting towards him, uttering words that remain unresponded, as all he needs for now is,
“Take-e.. Take me back-k…. Plea-se”
Running where his legs take him.
Roarings are heard near his ears, but as he tries to run away, they all become numb.
His eyes roam over the pitch-black surroundings, his heart yearning for something he doesn’t remember.
Legs stagger at a sharp ache in his foot spreading towards his calves, as he sees blood covering his toes.
His fisted hands, swinging at his sides as he ran, were stained with gruesome bloodstains.
Whipping his head back, his bones chilled at many pairs of red-eyed silhouettes chasing him.
His legs weaken, his stance exhausted with his eyes nearly closed shut when he hears it,
A voice. Soft yet coated with misery. A ray of bright light pierces through his vision, making him squint.
His eyes begin to clear. In midst of the soul-burning light, he notices a boy, a little one, gesturing for him to come to him.
Each fiber of his body propels him towards the boy, speeding up as he runs.
He feels fingernails digging into his skin as hands yank him back. Yet he draws himself closer and closer to the boy to not let him disappear into the light.
He runs, with his legs trembling.
He runs, with his hands stretching over to clutch the misty lights.
His body falls off losing balance, pliant in between the brightness.
Creaking crickets wake him up to the greened trees standing as a shade from the sun's rays.
Looking around, he finds himself laying on the ground, in the woods.
Inspecting his legs and hands for any blood, he finds them covered with weird things.
Weird things like his mate bring him.
Trying to sit up, he was immediately pushed down to the ground by someone. Climbing over him, taking a seat on his torso by burying the head in his neck.
When his hands try to hold their stance, he realizes it’s a small body that's hugging him.
A tiny pudgy hand came to caress his face. He holds the mid-portion of the someone, scooping them up in the sky to look over the face.
He hears giggles falling like honey to his ears.
And the face. The same face that he had seen before.
The familiar mole right near his eyes and the one on the tip of his nose brings him so many unreadable emotions.
The same little one that urged him to follow the light, away from the darkness.
‘Put me down, my neck hurts~’,
The chubby little one whiningly shouts, his words not sharp yet, bread cheeks showing up.
He places him back on his torso, who then clings back to him like a koala.
‘Oh, silly kookie, why do you always sleep?’
He hears himself laughing and tickling his sides, making the other squirm,
‘Petal, did you ditch your classes again?’
‘I wanted to see you. Look I bought you cookies!’
An excited squeal was heard as he finds himself grabbing one of the cookies the kid offers him.
‘It’s my courting gift!’
The biscuit he was munching on was spurted out in an instant,
coughing, ‘Oh my precious petal, courting is when you offer something to someone made by yourself’
The kid pouts, head slumping down, ‘ah I don’t know how to cook’
‘And only alpha’s do court their ideal mate..’
The baby’s face now morphs into total sadness. He sits up pulling the little one in a hug,
‘But who cares when it’s my precious Tae offering me gifts!’
He hoists him in the air again, teasing his belly with his nose as little Tae wiggles yet again in his hold
‘Then when I grow up I’ll make your food all day!’
‘Of course, you will! My dear Taehyungie..’
He sees the little boy, laughing, his heart content at the sight of the wide boxy smile.
But the happiness and peace stays for a minute when the eyes that looked at him with warmth now turned to teary ones. Lips once smiling widely, now trembling, panting in between breaths.
‘Kookie.. I’m scared..’
He looks over his surroundings, Bright sunrays are now covered with cloudy mists.
He stares in horror at the screaming and shrilling voices, the air now plunged with the scent of grief and death.
He scoops little Tae in his arms, running as his hands and legs are covered with blood again. His eyesight has now blurred to a reddish hue.
After tightening his grip on Tae, a force hits his back hard and he falls to the ground.
Recovering from the knock-out, he raises his head to find Tae held by someone, taking him far away from him.
With all his remaining energy, he screams,
Attempting to raise, his legs gave up falling to the ground again. He panics when the path Tae was carried by, now burning in angry flames,
Harsh blows from the wind make his eyes fall open, and panting causing his lungs to contract with the lack of oxygen.
He wheezes for breath, hissing loudly when the air enters his system painfully hard.
It’s still the night sky. His mate didn’t try to talk to him again as he does sometimes, conversing inside his head.
He feels something clawing his chest, chanting 'my omega' over and over, with tiny pleas escaping his mouth.
Feeling someone shaking him up, coaxing him to come to his senses, he sits up, cold sweat covering his face and neck. He takes in his surrounding.
It’s the dark cavern, the one he finds himself coming back to ever since his memory stayed.
His breath hollows at the intense need to contact his mate and to calm in his scent.
He hears the same words of 'omega' and 'Tae' repeating inside him, scraping at his caged heart, as he takes slow weak steps towards the pack to see his mate.
Writhing in pain, he curled himself into a ball, falling to the ground.
Jae-sung holds him tightly, concern for the omega evident in his features.He cradles his lithe frame in his arms, saying soothing words of comfort to ease the pain away.
The harsh memories repeat in a glitch as Tae tries to shake them away. Jaesung asks him in a worry-coated voice, “Taehyung-ssi, what happened?”
But all he hears the other speak is ‘take me, away’
Soon the small burnt-out place is filled with familiar pheromones to Tae.
Namjoon rushes to take Tae in his arms. He was questioned about what happened. Even though he's ready to answer, his words are kept from coming out.
As if someone is mentally blocking him from speaking. His posture regains a defensiveness, with his omega pleading to him.
Every wolf has a bond with its human, but his own have never communicated with him.
always felt like his wolf never existed, except for the occasional emotions he receives.
But now he hears, the pleadings of his wolf,
'Do not tell them'
His head hurts at the new form of bond that emerges inside him
His body shivers as the echoing voice of his inner omega is heard again,
'Do not ever mention our Kookie to them'
And he does exactly that, refusing to answer, just holding onto his pained chest. His mind was probing, barely able to recall the memories now.
Namjoon carries him to the carriage, comforting Tae by rubbing his nose on his cheeks,
all while the other asks him to take the pain away
The Kims excuse themselves from the gathering, to take Tae back to his safe place, to his little nest back at home
Tae lays his head on his mother’s lap, seated between his parents, body numb and motionless.
He hears his mother speak in a hushed tone, “Do you see why I said it's not a good idea to bring him here??”
His father responds, but all his mind races over is,
I don't even know how I'm taking this story..
Do yall like how this is going?
The dawn light peered through the windows. Tae exhaled tiredly as he spent his night tussling with his conflicting thoughts. His omega being silent after those few words uttered and the distorted images and glitched memories had him frustrated all night.
“Taehyung-ah!”, his mother called, “Are you ready yet? Jimin-ah is already here!”
He didn't bother to reply as he heard footsteps ascending towards his room. The door opened to reveal Jimin, pouting his lips as he peeked from the door.
Seeing no response from Tae, he paddled toward his friend, he got on the bed hugging the other’s sides as he scented the room with his pheromones of comfort.
He nuzzled in Tae’s shoulder, tightening his hold on him before Tae shrugged himself away,
heading to his wardrobe. He came back in minutes, freshened up with cute clothes hugging his frame.
After saying their goodbyes, both walked down to where Yoongi would be waiting with his van for them.
Tae stopped in mid-way halting Jimin as well.
“Jimin-ah”, Jimin nods his head before Tae can speak anything.
“It's okay, go. I’ll say you’re sick.. but be careful, everyone is on edge these days”
He just nodded his head before turning the other way and taking off to the woods.
Jimin sighed walking towards his mate, who furrowed at the absence of the other.
“Where’s the chipmunk?” “His name is Taehyung, not a chipmunk”, he pouted angrily at his mate as he stepped into the van, “And he is sick”
Noticing his mate's curious gaze on him. He turned towards the window, hoping he would start the engine.
Yoongi did as the other hoped but his heart pained at the obvious lie his mate comes up with every other day.
He knows Jimin would never do any of the suspicions his mind brings up, but the breaking of eye contact and the rapid shallow heartbeats give up. It's not that he's doubtful of his mate but rather scared of the strong alpha pheromones in their house last night
and a few days ago. Scared that Jimin might be hiding something, something that may harm his mate in any way.
But he trusts his mate to be on his own and would reach him if it's anything beyond his strength.
Jimin was silent throughout the ride until Yoongi dropped him off and kissed him goodbye.
Tae ran to their meeting point, blinking his anxiety away when he senses no one there.
He whips in every direction, calling out ‘bunny’. A few times he may have slipped the word ‘kookie’ but stopped himself on not knowing who he might be referring to.
He advanced in the path he once saw his mate retreated on parting him,
ran and ran until the pine scent invaded heavily in his space
He walked through the creaking branches vary of his new surroundings. The sight of a cave stopped him in his tracks, old but familiar to him. He walked in glimpsing the small scribbles on the wall
As he entered, he noticed a small mulch of leaves that was hedged by some clothes. His clothes. The ones he was ripped and stripped off every time he visited his mate.
Whereas the clothes he bought for his mate were discarded in a corner.
He scoffs, it’s for sure his mate’s place.
He sits down on the bedding of leaves, waiting for his mate. It's obvious he's near as the smoke from the heath still lingered in the air, indicating he was here moments before..
He laid on his back, eyes falling droopy at the tiredness of sleep that he procrastinated all night. More the pine scent invaded his senses, the solace engulfed him inviting his slumber even more.
The next time he woke up, he felt warm and cozy, snuggling into the blanket of wool draped over him.
He bolted awake and froze on seeing a hand swamped around him.
Turning his head, he saw his mate sleeping beside him, hugging his waist. His body stiffened at the closeness.
He heard his mate hum and whine bobbing his head with his eyes still shut, urging him to sleep some more.
He turned his back to his mate, closing his eyes, heart still drumming its way on him.
Tae feels his mate scooting closer, hands tightening on him, rubbing his nose on his hair and then inhaling in the crook of his neck
He feels something wet patching on his clothes and neck.
Is he crying?
He attempts to turn towards him when the other stops, hugging him close, flushing his back to his chest, together.
Silent tears turned to loud sobs as Tae feels the one hugging him shaking violently behind him. His omega pained for his mate.
Holding onto the hand that's around him, he turned to his other side to hug his mate's neck.
The other held him close and hid in his chest so as not to worry him further or burden him because of his insecurities.
Tae shushed his mate, “Bun.. I’m sorry I left. I won't leave like that anymore,” he heard a whine rumbling near his chest.
I swear. I’m not gonna leave you again as I did. I’m here now. Don’t cry, bunny..”
He hugs him tight until the sobs died down. After moments of hugging and relishing in each other's warmth, he heard shuffling beside him.
Opening his eyes, he saw wide doe eyes with glistening tears staring at him. Tae smiled warmly at him, kissing his tears away as the other booped and scrunched his nose at him. His bunny teeth make an appearance once again.
Tae pinched the other’s cheek, advancing to bite the adorable button nose of his mate who whined crawling away from him.
Tae’s eyes widened before clapping his hands and stood up, going for his handbag.
He searched in his bag taking out a new piece of cloth for his mate to wear. Hearing groans he laughed at the one kicking his legs, showing his negativism to wear anything.
“Come on bunbun, you need to wear clothes”.
But the other just groaned loudly at him falling back to the ground.
“Get up,wear this first”, he handed him the trousers, helping him with the legs, pulling them up till his waist, doing the same with his shirt.
He hissed, slapping the hands away when the other tried to rip them off him.
They stayed in their little cavern the whole day, munching on the hunted animal his mate bought for them. He returned to his pack late in the evening,
not before peppering kisses on his mate’s face still he stops his whining and lets him go off.
This became his routine, ditching his classes running off to his mate, dawdling the whole day in their cavern, returning at the same time his school ends.
Some days he spent trimming his mate’s hair and devoured the whole day admiring his sharp cheeks bones and jaws despite the protests of the other.
Then his nights were filled with suffocated giggles and hushed laughs while mind linking his mate to
talk about random things
Some nights it’s his mate who links him first, tingling emotions surges in him, hearing his howling from the other side. Even if it’s only him talking and his mate listening grunting, and mewling at his words, Tae liked them the most.
The dinner salads plated for everyone were left untouched as a maidservant ran towards their dining, holding a letter from The Councils.
The Councils of Union, who once were held responsible to look over all the packs for peace and security,
and the ones who offered a training place for all the alphas to serve their packs. Until things turned haywire, the council shut off their system. Receiving a letter from them after years had the family at the edge.
Joon eyed his mate nudging his head at his brother, who immediately stood up, “Anyway, I don’t want to indulge in any more mess. Tae, would you join me in my boredom?”
Tae frowned at the eyes holding his gaze was filled with pity and sadness.
Sighing he strode to Jin, holding his hands as they ascend to the room.
Jin was babbling his frustration out about how he had to meet Namjoon’s friends this weekend and how he needs to look gorgeous before their mates.
Tae huffed falling into the pile of clothes Jin sprawled in the bed, “What was the letter about?”
“The one Joon just received”
“Oh that.. we don’t need to know, do we? I know for sure it’s another committee meeting they want him to join”
Tae just hummed, he knew quite a few things about The Councils, ruthless and merciless. But people stopped talking about them for years.
The bustling noise of clothes thrown out on the mattress faded when he heard a grumble from his mindlink.
Tae smiled unconsciously when those tingling sensations rushed inside him.
The time’s past their routine night call, almost worrying his mate for ignoring him. He lets a half-hearted excuse to Jin, rushing back to his nest, covering himself inside the sheets.
A familiar warmth and comfort drown him when those annoyed grumbles turn to low whines and huffs of wanting attention. After a series of apologies and sweet words, the mates return to their usual rambles.
He teases the rogue in between on how sometimes his actions copy Mr. cuddles, only to receive annoyed growls which then turn to soft mewls on hearing Tae laugh. They went on until Tae feels his slumber take over,
his words slurring with sleepiness yet receives an enthusiastic hum from his mate as if he can understand those incoherent words. He lets out a low good night to his mate.
His mind hazy with sleepiness he might’ve missed a ‘mate’ in return,
A voice deep and rough.
But he did not.
His eyes shot open the next moment, his body tensing at the familiarity. He can feel his omega preening yet he has never heard that voice. With confusion and daziness, he spent the night rolling on the mattress.
The next day dawned, Tae woke up to Jimin shaking him up. His vision cleared up to a worried Jimin. “Wake up”
His back hurts, all night tossing around in the bed as the deep voice continued to rumble near his ears.
It felt all too real to assume it was a dream. He got off the bed, running straight to his bath with Jimin following him to the door.
“Taetae, we have to talk”.
“I’m all ears, Chim”
“Tae, you need to come with me somewhere”
“Somewhere? Chim, I’m sorry I can’t”
He returns wearing an open-sleeved white chiton shirt patched up with knots near his elbow with a brown high-waisted pant.
“Tae..” Jimin voices in despair but the other shook his head,
the only priority of today is the 'unknown' voice, “But I really have something to do.. how about in the evening?”
After contemplating for a few seconds, Jimin nods his head and then runs downstairs with Tae.
When he’s nearly out of the house, there entered a chaotic Hobi, flaunting his new supreme jacket, followed by his mate.
Soon everyone gathered, and Tae was yanked by his bag strap to the dining by Seokjin.
He half-mindedly drank the soup his cook made, all while Hobi chit-chatted loudly about his new favorite Jacket.
Everyone dispersed in minutes from the dining but Tae's eyes stayed on the Jacket draped on his armrest,
his mind reeling back on how his bunbun will look wearing this jacket.
He smirks at Hobi, who is busy feeding his mate with a wide smile on his face.
He hears the voice again. A voice covered with sweet honeycomb, giggling at him.
“Kookie..” he feels himself cupping the other’s cheek, planting a kiss on his forehead and ruffling his hair. The smile is so familiar as the lips turn to a boxy shape.
“Kookie! You’re my Kookie”. The little one says, his tone lacing with sternness at the end.
“Yes, of course, I’m your Kookie”, a pretty mole hiding behind his crinkled eye.
His eyes open and smiles at the same soothing dream that’s been repeating for
a few days. He wakes up, folding the sheets as the other taught him, and gets ready for today’s meet-up with his mate.
The rogue groaned at the colorful cloth his mate bought for today. He hates wearing anything over him but this one is painfully vibrant to his eyes.
But he still wears it for the other, to see the precious boxy smile and bread cheeks adorning his face.
It was mid-noon when they both came back to their cavern with a deer. Tae laughed and ruffled his mate's hair, who preened proudly at his achievement. They spent their day munching off the meat and the snacks the other carried this time.
Tae laid down after the heavy meal, food-coma hitting him, with his mate beside him who is now subtly trying to sneak his fingers inside the other’s shirt.
But it went unnoticed as the thoughts of yesterday swarmed his mind.
He sat straight looking at his mate, who abruptly turned to his side embarrassed thinking Tae caught him in his act.
Tae sighs pulling him over to turn him back to his side. His hands give out soon on not being a match for his mate’s strength.
He then climbs over his mate, dropping flat on his lower waist. Tae cups the other’s face, fingers brushing the cheeks and then to his lips. He runs his hands down his throat, hardly ignoring the blushing mess of his mate, gulping each second as
Tae runs his fingers up and down his throat. He looks over his mate, wide innocent doe eyes looking back at him in spite of the flustering mess he is. He eyes the lips again, thumb swiping them. A desperate craving raises as he leans forward to tug down
on the lower one, pulling it apart with his teeth making the other hiss at the action. But nothing stops him from sucking harshly before leaving it with a ‘plop’.
“You know bun, I had this weird dream yesterday”, voice low, hands running back to his throat,
feeling low growls beneath his fingers. “A voice I have never heard of, yet holds familiarity, calling for their Mate. Over and over”
He looks back at his mate, who gulps and turns his head to the side, but the hand holding his neck, cupped his jaw turning
his head to face him. He flustered at the closeness. “I feel like it’s you.
"It is. You” his eyes bored on the one under him. “Cause, it was heard in my link. Our link.. Care to explain, my dear mate?”
The rogue just looks back, his hands taking a hold of the other’s waist. Tae was taken aback at the emotionless stare his mate returned.
Was he mistaken?
He huffs out, flopping on the mattress, beside his mate “What am I thinking?”
He eyes his mate, who is examining his bruised lower lip, holding it in his dear hands.
Tae gasps, “Oh my Goddess. Did I hurt you? I didn’t mean to hurt you. I’m so sorry, bunny” but the latter scowls at him.
“I didn’t mean to hurt you..”
Tae pouts, to which his mate’s scowled features morphs to a wide smile as he neared to boop the other with his scrunched nose.
The bunny teeth appears when Tae giggles at the adorableness. He hugs the sides of his neck, climbing on his lap again.
“Look at that bunny smile!!” and just as he says, the bunny smile fades to a scowl, eyebrows scorning in displeasure.
“You don’t like being called bunny?” Tae asks in between his giggles and receives annoyed whines in return.
He laughs out loud holding the other to connect their foreheads, “But you’re my bunny”, smiles adoringly at his mate, their harmonized heartbeat echoing inside the silent walls, until..
Tae froze. Jolted away from his mate. His heart skips beats, feeling paralyzed all over.
"I’m your Kookie-e"
There is the same rough voice from yesterday.
//Call him kookie everyone. Never compare him with that white buffoon
Kook whines out with his lips jutted out.
Tae shrieks out of the bed, his insides burn at his mate’s voice. His heartbeat picks up a speed, gasping loudly. His actions led Kook to jump up in his bed, eyes on alert and roaming everywhere in his cavern.
His nails and canines elongating to attack and tear off anyone who scared his mate.
But on noticing no weird scents anywhere, and with no hints of anyone, he looks back at Tae. Tilting his head as if he’s questioning what he’s scared of.
Tae’s eyes widened as if they would pop out any second. His skin paled as he took measured steps towards him.
He sets one of his knees on the bed as kook crouched near him, cupping his face.
Kook retreats at the coldness in his fingers but then purrs while holding over the hand cupping his cheeks and nuzzling into it, warming those shivering hands.
“You speak” Tae chokes out, a stray tear escaping his eyes. Kook just continues on warming him,
pulling him back into his lap.
Tae straddles him, thanking the goddess for not lessening any of the blessings of his mate. His breath strains when Kook pulls him flush towards him, the hands tightening over the other.
Kook looks at the worried tone of his mate “Call me your mate. Again”
Kook frowns, not knowing what his mate asks of him.
Tae takes hold of the other's hand that is circling his ribs and lets those fingers touch his lips and then his throat,
Tae chokes on a tear when in a few attempts he hears his mate speaks again.
Tae sucks in a breath before laughing out at his precious mate. Kook scowls, he expected Tae to ruffle his head for being good and not laugh at him.
Tae kisses those frowns adorning his eyebrows away, and lets his mate focus on his lips again, “Mate”
Tae holds Kook’s head as he pronounces the word more slowly and pressing on the edges.
“Ma-te”, making sure his tongue touching the back of his teeth is visible
Kook nods, his head falling back at the impact of resonating the same sound “Mate-e”, his voice grumpy and rough.
Tae gives a loud smooch on the other’s lips and smiles wide at him.
Kook mirrors the emotions with proudful face on making his mate happy again.
“So your name is Kookie?”, and on hearing kookie from his lips, Kook growls tackling him over the bed and hugging the petite frame closer, snuggling into the other’s neck.
Tae giggles out, caressing the back, and then halts at the sudden recalls of him calling someone Kookie in his visions. He scoffs, the memories and details making a little sense to him now.
“So we are somewhat connected it seems”,
he says while rubbing the hair, as the other lowered to snuggle his waist.
Kook hummed and nuzzled his head near his mate’s belly, the shirt raising up further to show a sparkling stone pierced in the navel.
Tae was in a scramble of thoughts when he felt his navel pierce being tugged on
He hissed, leaning down to look at Jungkook tugging the pierced stone by his lips. Kook halted his action but nonetheless continued sucking and licking the surface of the piecing.
// following smut scenes can be read at my other acc. Age in bio or your req will be ignored. You'll not miss any storyline. Just a bad attempt at smut.
Taehyung was sound asleep when he hears Jimin calling his name. He raises his head from where he’s sleeping, on his mate’s chest.
The sky’s gloomy, sun settled with the moon rising anytime.
He promised to talk with Chim in evening.
Tae kissed his mate’s head, saying a soft goodbye he got up, dressing himself and left the cavern to meet Jimin.
Kook once Tae left, opened his eyes, ray of tears already burring them.
He sniffs to the side where Tae slept. Leaning for the scent of lavender to comfort him and hugged himself to sleep.
Jimin was holding himself in anxiety waiting for Tae to come out.
“Chim, what is it?”
He doesn’t wait for Tae to finish,
“The time has come”
“What?” “The time has come. That’s what the letter from yesterday said”
Tae looked blankly at Jimin, his head tilting to speak more. “Oh, Tae it’s from The Council. And you know what Namjoon Hyung said?”, Tae shook his head in confusion
“He ordered Yoonie and Hobi Hyung to look out for you. I don’t know what it meant but this morning Hobi came and ordered to check the woods again.
“I’m feeling so nervous. My omega can predict when something bad is about to happen.
And I feel it now. I feel like something is coming on our way. Something evil and dangerous-“ Jimin rambled in anxiety with his hands making many gestures.
“Park Jimin stop.”
“No Tae. I can’t. I have been trying to convey this to you from yesterday,
Yoonie’s been restless from yesterday. I have never seen him this tense ever in my 25 years of life. Who even are these Councils?”
“You're just 20. Stop being dramatic. And Councils are one of the Committee members from the West mansion- THE WEST MANOR!”
“What even is that west manor”
“The one where we attended the ball gathering. The one Lee Pack invited us for. That’s where the Councils was situated at”
“You mean the one where you went nuts”
Jimin mocks at him and receives a hard slap on his head.
“Yo, what was that for?!”
“Shut up and follow me”
They enter the isolated manor, with no warriors around to guard it anymore making it easier for them to slip inside.
Tae runs straight to the room carved with ‘Officium’.
The door of stone creaks when the friends try to open it. Dust and fine powders fill the place as soon as the door opens. Jimin coughs mumbling, “If Yoonie knows my ass is dead”
“Stop Chimmy. We both know Hyung loves your ass too much to hurt it”
Jimin scoffs in return, “Only if you know,..” Tae halts his forage and looks back at Jimin. Both pause till Jimin coughs off and Tae disgusts his face,
“Shut up your nonsense and search for anything”
“Anything like what?”
“Don’t know..? Anything that seems important..”
They search for an hour, books after books, files after files.
When Tae gets over a file full of pictures, red marks crossed over their face. He runs his fingers over, searching for the obvious.
Jimin takes a book, “We are wasting our time here, we could’ve sneaked into Joonie Hyungs cabin. By this time we would’ve received our answers”. He rambles on his own when papers fall from the book.
Jimin gathers it, reading the title aloud,
“Lists of Trained subjects”, he starts to read the name out loud.
"Kim Myung hee"
Tae doesn’t give heed to what Jimin has been saying and continued to search for the face he’s been expecting.
"Kim Dong Wook"
Some faces crossed with red marks over and over. Unfamiliar letters scribbled beside their faces. His eyes search, darting all over the pages, when something caughts his attention.
A picture bend in half to reveal only a mole. A mole under the lips. Familiar as someone. His hands turn cold, reaching to stretch the picture to full.
"Park Bo young"
He gasps aloud, pausing Jimin as well.
He snatches the list from Jimin, comparing the picture with the name. His mind ran back to his ‘Kookie’. Features same, yet younger than him now. So much younger as if taken in his teen.
Both the list and picture carry the same unknown letters filled.
His face crossed out multiple times then circled a few times. His mind rages, Jimin gasping near his ear
He then reads the only thing he can understand beneath the Unknown words.
Jeon Jungkook, Subject 97
Status: S̶u̶r̶v̶i̶v̶e̶d̶ Dead
//forgive my ass for being dramatic that's it for today. Hope you enjoy the update please like and give qrts if you enjoy this au. It's inspires me alot. Thank you lovelies
Seated at the desk, her fist dabbed the wood, nose flaring at what she heard.
“Repeat what you said”
The alpha shivered as his Luna got up from her seat, heels sinking into the red fur carpet. She rounded the table to stand in front of the warrior,
Folding her hands in front of her, clearly waiting for the other to speak up.
Hearing the same words repeated, she hissed, “You meant to say my son is meeting with a Rogue?”
“Y-Yes Luna”, his eyes shuttered at the complete dominance oozing from His Luna.
“Explain”, her right foot clinked on the carpet, tapping the floor with impatience
“The wolf was huge, unlike any alpha wolves. Has dark raven fur knotted in some places, might be the case of not taking care for a long time. Claws sharp edgy,
His own darted up to the Luna, as he added, “His eyes glowed red”
“The human form?”
“Pretty much like any Alpha. But his eyes transform green-n”
She let a low growl, rumbling from her throat.
Her slim jaw clenched as she got a good idea of who it might be. It was one of them. Not any in their history was born with green eyes.
As to them, the goddess gave golden eyes to Alphas, to depict their sharp instinct and power to hold the hierarchy.
Brown eyes for Betas, hardworking out of all. And the omegas are blessed with blue eyes for their feminine and holy characteristics.
No one has ever met a wolf with green eyes. Until they met one of them. Strong and powerful with no weakness.
However, it was soon found out and their strength was turned down to weakness. The weakness which led to a war that went down their history.
Werewolves vs Lycoans
But it seems one lingered till this date.
Her lips spread to a sinister smile that turned down as soon as it appeared at the thought of her son.
Her precious son became a pawn in the middle of their evilness. She would never let her son go through the pain, ever again.
“Who else knows?”
“I have seen Park Jimin, a friend of our Taehyung lurking near his cavern, but none other than him, Luna”
She exhaled a hum, chucking back to her desk, “The words spoken here, will stay here. Within these walls”, her fingers pointed, drawing circle as their
The alpha nodded his head once with his lips tight shut. Her manicured fingers swayed in the air yet again noting his dismiss.
As the warrior neared the door, “On your way out, call Min Yoongi in”, she uttered while checking some papers.
He glanced at the papers again and again, his heart thrumming inside his chest. He had a hint of the answers yet having proof laid before his eyes, had him rooted. Goosebumps raised the hairs of his nape, forehead sweating more than usual with
pounding heartbeat, his fingers traced his mate’s picture. His wide-opened mouth fell canon shut when Jimin starts uttering distorted words at him. As he does every time he gets nervous.
“Take a breath and speak properly”, Tae wheezed out.
Jimin inhaled an audible breath in and puffed them out a few times, then pointed a trembling forefinger at his best friend, “You are mated with a ghost?!”
Peering at Tae’s blank look, “You knew already?!”, he gasped, his hands flying to grasp his chest.
“Stop this nonsense Chimmy. Kook is not a ghost nor am I mated with a ghost”, he drawled out.
“Kook?”, Jimin’s head jutted out a little at his question to which Tae fingered the line carrying his mate's name.
"Jeon Jungkook. That’s his name.. A beautiful name it is. But why does it say he’s dead. Moreover What’s with these subjects? For what were they subjected to? Why many are dead? Why-"
Tae raised his hands, calming himself as he grits out, “Calm the fuvk down"
“-our Kook is 97?-”
“And they were subjects? What subjects? Did they do some experiments on them?”
Tae shut himself, his eyes drooping with tiredness. His chest shrunk at thought of his mate being experimented on and
marked by his results like a lab rat.
Seeing the hurt look on his friend,
Jimin ran his hand on the expanse of Tae's back, “We don’t know that yet..”
Tae looked down, skimming through the pages till the last one. They were 120 subjects.
Every one of them marked the same, with some survived yet stricken out as dead.
“None survived”, Tae whispered out to no one in particular. “Yet your Kook did”
, Jimin answered him
‘What were they subjected to?’ they whispered in unison.
Tearing out the page containing his mate scattered with unrecognizable words and pocketing it, Taehyung sprung up from the seat, scanning the littered books and papers around the room.
“Jiminie check for any books that speak of Lycoans. Anything.
Even if it’s a bit of paper, I want it”
“Lycoans? You think it’s them?”, a hint of nervousness can be heard in his voice.
Tae whirled around to face Jimin, “You know them?”
Jimin’s eyes shadowed, “Tae everyone knows. Power hungry monsters who killed
the whole pack of Lemuria”
Tae felt his stomach twist at the name, heart aching for unknown reasons. “Lemuria-a?”
“I don’t know much but they destroyed every one of Lemuria. The pack does not exist anymore”, Jimin uttered quietly.
“How-w did they kill them?”, stuttering out Tae raised his blurry eyes at Jimin.
"I-I don’t –" "How do you know it was them who killed the pack?”, Tae shouts, his voice lacing with desperate pleas.
Jimin shakes his head and speaks in a little voice,
“Everyone knows. It happened when we were in our middle school”
Confusion and anger blinded him, his hands fisting by his sides, Jimin speaks again, his careful hands stretching to hold him, “But we don’t know if it was them who are listed here”
"Jimin-ah the problem is I don’t remember anything", Tae hopped on from foot to foot, worrying his thoughts out, "I don’t fucking remember anything from my middle school. Or my childhood!"
“Tae, you are in shock, sit down for a minute”, Jimin grabs
the forearm to make him sit which was swatted away by the other.
“No, you don’t understand. I feel like a fool here!”, his slender hands gather his shirt near his chest and yells out.
“You said I was sick when Hyung was attacked by a rogue.
What do you mean by sick?”
Cause to Taehyung everything weird started there. Weird dreams and memories popping out of no where.
“W-what?” Jimin stammers and faltered back when Tae grabbed him by his shoulder, “Do not-“
They halt at the sound of heavy metal door thudding in front. Both held their breaths in as they hear someone nearing them. The sound of boots hitting the hardwood echoed the hall, followed by series of steps.
There were many.
Staggering in their steps, Taehyung and Jimin near the door, jabbing their ears on it to eavesdrop on the other side
The steps and voices are still distant for them to hear clearly. But thanks to their keen hearing ability, they can hear the hush of the voices
“If the words you’ve spoken been found as a lie we will have your head, Lee”, a voice warns to which another male, presumably identified as Jaesung by Taehyung speaks,
“You will know it is the truth by looking at the documents, Jang Hee-ssi”,
an awkward laugh follows.
By the distance of the voices, it’s not hard to assume they are still in the main hall and not near the officium yet.
Jimin and Tae share a look at each other, their eyebrows raised in questioning.
Jimin tilts his head ahead to the already opened door, to which Tae nods following the other. They move at a slow pace, their steps careful and steady as they get outside of the room with piled books.
Taehyung leans over the wall, to peek at anyone.
He gasps on noticing more than 10 heads coming in their direction.
He turns to face Jimin who is now trying his best to close the stoned door without letting any noise, his eyes shut tight and lips stretched, revealing gritted teeth.
Tae lashes toward him, dragging him to run to which the other pliantly follows but halts on hearing a very familiar mocking tone.
“Aye, aye, we both know it’s pretty easy to fabricate the documents, Jaesung-ssi. Or did you actually take us as a fool?”,
Hobi asks with a fake disappointed gasp.
A panicked voice over traces Hobi’s tone “No! We would never. You might take a look at the documents by yourselves, for you to be sure, Hoseok-ssi”
Tae staggers in his steps, freezing on hearing Hobi-Hyung’s voice, and turns over to Jimin who already has his hand clutched over his thumping heart, lips chanting some prayers.
Their body seizes, muscles alerting as the footsteps near them,
a thin wall separating the two from the others. The footsteps faint yet again noting they entered the officium.
Tae whirls around the place, his eyes roaming everywhere, hoping for any way to escape.
Jimin pulls him towards himself, cause there’s no way they can escape from them. Their pheromones peaking high as minutes pass from fear and dread. He mouths at Tae to trust him, taking a few breaths to calm down.
Taehyung whips his head at Jimin and sees the other mouthing to trust him. Confused he stares at him closing his eyes and taking a few breaths.
And then, on opening up, his own breath tears apart at the mischievous glint in them.
Taehyung gestures a panicked series of ‘no’ to not do anything stupid and his body stills the next second.
“I’ve been telling you, that precious amulet of yours is not here. You must’ve missed it elsewhere. Let’s search the outside ffs, Taetae”,
he yells out, his intentions clear to let the people from the other side hear him
Tae stumbles forward, practically falling over Jimin, his hands rushing to shut the other up. The bustle of noises stops from the officium and footsteps toward them were heard
Jimin brushes Taehyung off him, grunting at Tae to neat himself up and act as he does.
Hobi emerges from the hall, his eyes wide fixed on the two, “Oh, Hobi Hyung, you were here?”, Jimin asks with a little hint of innocence in his voice.
Tae following his lead, gives a blinding smile at Hobi, “Hyung, didn’t knew you were here”
“What you two doing here?”, Hobi asks, glancing pointedly at the two. Jaesung comes running from the room, books thudding behind him, at the sound of Taehyung’s voice
“Ah, this fatass lost the amulet his brother gave him. So we are searching for it”, Jimin said coolly, his fingers pointing at a clearly offended Taehyung.
Tae noticing eyes on him, tucks a strand of hair behind his ear, “Y-yes, I think I might’ve lost
it the time we came over here..?”, sending a questioning look at Jimin, who shrugs and drawls, “But it’s not here..” in a sing-song voice.
“Well if it’s not here then get going”, Hobi sways his hand in the air, like sweeping them from the manor.
Will y'all interact??
Taehyung and Jimin rush then, stumbling over the other, and make their way to the main door.
Jaesung stops them right the moment, his throat bobbing, “But it’s getting dark out, you can’t go alone”, his eyes longingly locked with Taehyung, “let me..”
Hobi cleared his throat loudly making Jaesung fidget in his stance and correct himself, “let We- I meant- Us! Let Us take you two back..”, this time the young Lee faced Hoseok for his consent.
Hobi's gaze weighed on Jaesung, cause the sun is still bright up.
Might take an hour to settle down. Might take 3 more hours for the darkness to befall.
Yet, he raised his head over to the ceiling plaque, folding his left hand behind his back and sighing, “Stay right over here, we just here for the documents.
It would take a few minutes more or over”, with this Hobi entered the officium.
Jaesung gave a shit-eating grin at Tae which made his eyes turn crescent moon, then followed Hobi into the hell of the room.
“He’s whipped”, swatting above the head lightly,
“Shut that mouth”, Taehyung turned to leap over the railings, the paper containing his mate’s details that he hefted weighing heavy in his jackets.
By the time their legs hurt from standing for long, a big commotion was heard inside the room.
Jimin pulled Tae with him, setting their ears on the door. It was one of the warriors of their pack yelling at Lee for not being alert enough.
Soon the door was tugged open to their faces, and Hobi emerged with a knocking glare at them.
“You two will stay here, I’m leaving two more guards here with that Lee muppet. I’ll be back after having a word with Joon” with that he left.
Taehyung peeked inside the room to see the pup alpha slouched on the same chair he was seated before, with his hands gripping his hair and on the verge of tears.
Jimin pushed Tae in to confront the upset Alpha.
“Hey.. Are you okay?”, Tae asked with a genuine concern for the alpha. Lee, as ever he known, has always been concerned about him. His eyes always showed the care he had for the omega.
“Yea, I’m okay. Just some documents missing”, Jaesung sighs out.
Tae’s own hand reached over the documents in his coat, fisting it in guilt.
“Not that it is important. It’s clear as sky that none are alive but I believe alpha Joon is wary, cause of you”, whipping his head at Tae, “He just wants you safe”
Tae had his eyes down but he felt the other’s stare on him. the softness in his voice is not helping his situation any better.
But their silent peaceful moment was halted when a minion hopped from his back, pulsing their blood in no time.
“Is Joonie-Hyung talking about Lycoans?”, Jaesung visibly shuttered, “H-Ho-w… y-yes. Yes”, blinking his eyes fast he carefully muttered.
“Can we know what they actually are? We know they are bad but to what extent?”, Jaesung snapped his eyes at Jimin
who immediately had his hands under Tae’s chin, “For Tae, he needs to know at least what is happening to him”
His eyes slid towards Tae, gaze softening on him.
Straightening himself he uttered, “Yes, it was Lycoans. They were here. With us.
"We shared our everything with them. Sheltered them, by giving a roof to their head.
"Trained them along with us, a place to sleep and three meals a day. Until they became what they are, beasts",
Taehyung flinched and stood breathless leaning over Jimin for support
“You know, I had a brother. The Alpha apparent of the Lee Pack”, chuckling with a dead gaze he continued, “I was not the Alpha. I was just meant to be the little boy enjoying his days while
"his Hyung fought for his pack”, the tone laced with happiness and grief.
“I heard screams, Taehyung-sshi. Bloody screams screeching the hall, that night. I was sleeping with my brother. Right in this manor. They were tired after a long day of training,
"so they let me sleep with them. Until right at midnight I heard the screams down the orchard. No one was with me in the chamber, they all left me alone. I was barely six then. The screams and cries echoed the manor.
"I was scared but I ran in that direction to search for my brother. Bloods and piles of bodies filled the place.
"I ran down to the garden, sniffing the air for my brother’s pheromone. I ran towards the intensity of the scent. Hoping to find my brother.
"A-nd I did-d"
Shivering at the memory he added, “I-I saw my brother, his form not intact and blood spurting and soaking him like a pool.
"Beside him stood a creature, feral and lethal I’ve never seen before,
blood covering its face and canines dripping the red liquid”
Jaesung was visibly trembling, holding onto the hand of Tae in his shoulder, “They killed him, Taehyung-ssi. The green-eyed demons killed my brother. And everyone”
“They had the strength none of us possessed. It took us days to defeat them.
"But we did. We killed every single one of them. Burned them to death, till none can identify their faces”, newfound bravery laced his voice.
Taehyung held Jimin’s wrist that hugged him from behind in a tight grip, almost bruising.
“It was personally taken up by my father to document the details of them here. And I lost it. It should be here, I left them here.
Being given a huge responsibility to handle is new to me and-“, turning back to look at their frozen faces, his own guilt-tripped, “Did I scare you? I didn’t mean to.. sorry”
Jimin was quick to add a 'no' while Tae was still in trance on what he heard.
There’s no way his mate is one of them. Jungkook would never-
'𝑇𝘩𝑒 𝑟𝑜𝑔𝑢𝑒 𝑑𝑖𝑑 𝑡𝘩𝑖𝑠. 𝐾𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑒𝑑 𝑚𝑦 𝑠𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑠𝘩𝑟𝑒𝑑' '3 𝑜𝑓 𝑜𝑢𝑟 𝑝𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑚𝑒𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟𝑠 𝑤𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑘𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑒𝑑 𝑤𝘩𝑖𝑙𝑒 𝑔𝑢𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝘩𝑒 𝑏𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑒𝑟.
𝐼𝑡’𝑠 𝑡𝘩𝑒 𝑟𝑜𝑔𝑢𝑒’ ‘𝐼 𝑠𝑎𝑤 𝑡𝘩𝑒 𝑏𝑒𝑎𝑠𝑡. 𝐼𝑡 𝑖𝑠 𝑒𝑛𝑜𝑟𝑚𝑜𝑢𝑠 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑓𝑒𝑟𝑎𝑙. 𝐼𝑡 𝑘𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑒𝑑 𝑚𝑦 𝑝𝑎𝑝𝑎’.
Yes, his Kookie is a rogue. Just that. But then he had green eyes when he first turned to his human form.
And as per Jaesung and his mother, all Lycoans were killed or /burned/ as they said.
Coming to think of it his Jungkookie mostly had chestnut eyes rather than that rare enchanting green eyes.
His thoughts ran haywire, “So, Joonie-Hyung believes they are not dead yet?”, his ears perked up to the question asked by Jimin.
Jaesung merely shrugged, “He just wants to make sure all the Lycoans trained here were dead”, his eyes skipped to Taehyung then,
The patrols complained about seeing some weird creatures lurking on your borders. And your- your dreams? Or nightmare..? He’s scared you might get hurt again”
His senses blacked out again, his thoughts torturing his saneness.
Just as then, Hobi ran in, “Joon found him. He found him in the northern dock of the woods. We need to move”
Taehyung felt dizziness at what Hobi said, his body seizing his movements. Northern dock is the lake where they meet.
'Do they mean Kookie?
Was he the one they found? Was Kookie waiting for him?
He felt tears brim his eyes.
“Hyung, who did he found-d..?”, Taehyung asked in a low voice, fearing for the obvious answer he might hear.
“So, he’s just rogue or a Lycaon?” “We don’t know for sure. If it’s a rogue, we can attack it. But if it turns to be a Lycaon..”, Hobi drawled.
Right then, his mindlink resonated with faint howlings and pained yelps.
“I’ll inform my father. We’ll soon be there with-“
Violent screams shrieked the manor as Taehyung roared at everyone even thinking of attacking his mate. His eyes turned ice-blue, glowing angrily at them. He moved fast, smashing the things in his way and
blindly surging to the door. To his mate.
Hobi and everyone were stunned to see Tae being overtaken by his own omega. It does happen when one’s enraged or saddened with something related to their mate.
They stood dumbfounded, to see Tae running out hysterically, barefooted and yowling, with Jimin rushing behind him.
He turned back to Jaesung,
“Alert your father”
Taehyung was running, his mind raced with the one thought alone.
He didn’t give mind to the thorns pricking his legs or to Jimin yelling at him from behind. He didn’t even care to succumb to his wolf form.
He just wanted his mate, to be with him, the need to know he’s okay.
He wanted to scream at everyone for letting his Kookie suffer alone. He chanted his mate’s name as he ran berserk
He side-tracked to the woods, his feet leaping ajar at a fast pace.
He didn’t turn once to check if Jimin is following him. Or he is not. Jimin stopped following him minutes ago. Cause no one can catch up with this madness stride.
No omega can run this fast. But Tae did. The thought of his mate in danger made him sprint towards him.
He’s near to their borders, he can see them, their pack warriors in their wolf form charging to the northern dock.
But he knows his mate might be in their cavern. He might be fast to reach him before the others could.
My fingers aren't working. They buffering. Help
The cavern is silent as he sets foot in, and on entering further he hears faint sounds of breathing.
There in the middle of fluffy clothes /his clothes/ Jungkook lays curled up in his black pant, the shirt he had worn teared up.
Taehyung leaped to him, carefully holding him in his arms. Kook sensing his omega, opened his eyes, his hands immediately circling Tae’s neck.
Then he’s scenting him. Nuzzling his nose on the other, rubbing the cheeks and crook of his neck with his scents.
Tae ran his hands on Kook, checking for any wounds. Apart from a few scratches, there are no other big wounds
In relief and much to others’ dismay, Taehyung pulls away to cup his mate’s face. He chokes on a sob noticing Kook’s tear-stained eyes,
his own returning normal, “I was so scared.. They chased you?”.
Kook pouts out a hum. And he swears he might ugly cry if his mate pouted any longer. He smooches a chase kiss on Kook's lips, both crying out loud now, “I’m not letting them do anything to you”,
they press their forehead together.
Instead of relishing in the presence of his mate, Kook's body shuddered, as if someone from inside clawing his chest. He groaned at the weird calling.
Then they hear distant footsteps. They must’ve found this cavern.
Taehyung held Kook’s face towards him, “Jungkookie”, the fluttered face of his mate on hearing his name from his mouth didn’t go unnoticed by him,
“I want you on your best behavior. Okay? We are going to talk to my brother.
So please don’t let your canines drop. You hear me?”, even tho he's frowning, he nods his head none the less.
“We are going to win this, Kook”, Taehyung said in a firm note. Holding Kook’s hand tight as they both stood up.
Covering Kook with a fur coat and doing his hair up to a messy bun, he marched the other to the outside of their cavern, their safe place.
Kook, on every step he took outside, felt the clawing in his chest intense.
By the moment they stood out, the wolves piled in front with a brown Alpha wolf leading them.
Taehyung scoffed in pain at the number of warriors Joon bought to attack his mate.
Namjoon on seeing Taehyung with the rogue turned to his human form in an instant.
Covering himself, “You-u.. Tae.. What are you doing here?”, he stuttered out in panic and confusion.
“Hyung. He’s my mate..”, the moment he declared,
loud gasps were heard along with bone crackings, as a few started to turn one by one.
“I never wanted to introduce him to you like this, but.. fate's never up to us right?”, he huffed a laugh, turning around to gaze at his mate
who is pushing himself on a thin line to not ponce on those glaring at him
“What do you mean this mutt is your mate?”, Joon snapped.
Taehyung growled at him, “Do not speak about my mate like this. Ever”, he warned with gritted teeth.
Kook was soon to pepper him with faint kisses along the line of his neck to calm him yet his eyes glared at Joon for getting his mate in bad mood.
Joon scoffed, “Are you sure he’s your mate? Cause the last time I checked, goddess never blessed worthless,
reckless monsters with mates”, Joon said, his every word spoken out with venom.
Taehyung shivered, his heart aching for Jungkook who didn’t even care the words of Joon as he continued scenting his omega.
“He’s never a monster or reckless, Hyung. He cares. He has emotions. Give him a chance, Hyung. I’m sure he will change your opinions on him”, he pleaded desperately at Joon, his hands holding Kook’s in a tight grip.
“I would Tae, I would. But I feel he’s something more than a rogue”,
Taehyung shook his head maniacally, pushing Jungkook behind him as he stood before him like a defense, “We can’t risk everything we have because of these manipulative creatures.
He has manipulated you, Taehyung-ah. Trust us, and come to this side”, he held a hand over to Taehyung who was stubborn in his feet.
“Taehyungie, come to your Hyung”, Joon took his moment to plead at Tae.
However, the latter never heeded his voice and hugged the hand that circled his waist, leaning to the warmth of his mate’s chest.
“He’s not what you think. He’s an adorable, responsible, caring mate”
“He cooked me food, he built me a nest
inside his cavern”
“Learned to braid my hair, hunts for me, and showers me with kisses every tired day”
“Listen to me-“
“No, you listen to me! This is my mate. And he is everything I can ask for!
"If you think, if you even think about taking him away from me.. then go against me. I’m standing with him all way", He’s full-on crying now. Tears streaming down his face.
Joon sighed, with his own glistening in tears, “You give me no chance then, Tae”,
sighing he tipped his head at someone near him,
Maybe that’s when Jungkook's hell loosed.
Maybe it’s even before when he had this clawing feeling in his chest.
But he did. He did give heed to the feelings inside him.
And he succumbed to his wolf that promised safety for him and his mate. He gave himself to his Alpha wolf to overtake his body.
Taehyung stood frozen when the warmth of his mate turned to dead coldness,
and the puff of cold breaths near his neck sent wild shivers to his spine
Joon faltered on his steps, as the /rogue/ tilted his head from behind his brother’s neck, a sinister evil smile on his lips, a vile sharp tongue darting out to lace the pointy canines.
Joon raked his eyes to the /rogue’s/ only to be met with dark lupine green pair, gleaming with malice.
The subdued land they stood turned havoc when one whispered,
A vile cackling echoed the woods, the pointy tongue running up the jaw of the omega.
And in a swish of the moments, they faced nothing but the mist of dust.. that remained from how fast the Lycoan took the little omega with him and ran into thin air.
Ending here for today..
Namjoon was bewildered the moment they disappeared.
He knows better about the inhumane abilities they possess, and instead, he lowered his guard and let the creature take away his little brother. His heart thrummed making his veins pop in fear.
Anyone near him can see him quivering in absolute shock.
His voice trembled as he turned to the others, “Spread out.. and search for Taehyung”,
His eyes hardened when the thought of his innocent Taehyungie scaped in the hands of the beast, tightening his jaw,
and with gritted teeth, he commanded his entire army of feral wolves, “And Hunt /him/ for his death!”
And in a flash of light he shifted to a massive wolf, snarling with sharp fangs, his claws plunging on the wet creaking branches as he started his hunt for the beast.
It took minutes, for Taehyung to get what is happening.
One moment, he stood before his brother and his warriors, and the next he finds himself swaying in the air, his hands fisted over black rugged fur.
Struggling to hold the other tight, when Jungkook hops a little he makes himself comfortable on the other’s back, riding him as the alpha wolf sprints through the woods.
Taehyung feels dizziness consuming him, the trees moving behind as Jungkook sprinted at a vastly higher speed
He knows for sure they’ve outrun others far back if they were following them.
Would they be following him?
What would Namjoon think? Is he furious?
He whips his head back to check if anyone is following but all he sees are a tunnel of trees and a narrow pointed path of how fast Kook’s running them away.
He hugs the neck of his mate, feeling him rumbling and growling breaths of air.
Where are they going? Where is his mate taking him?
Is he really mated with a Lycaon?
Tae can still feel the chills that ran down his spine back then when the Alpha took over his mate, raising his hair off his skin.
He has never felt such emotions with Jungkook.
Was it all a façade?
But his omega is hardly calm about this entire situation. If not in other state, his omega wolf would crawl in his chest demanding safety and their mate, as if in heat.
Now the silence and the fearlessness put him off the edge.
‘You surely be enjoying this ride’ he says noting his omega and gets a painful jab in his chest. Hissing in irritation, he focuses his attention on Kook.
Should he try talking to him?
“Kookie..?”, he calls with a low hesitant voice and instantly feels the other slowing down the pace. Jungkook’s ears point up and he tilts his face, side angling him,
“Where are we going?”
He doesn’t get a reply nor a sound and the Alpha wolf starts running
as if he didn’t hear Taehyung speaking to him.
He slows down when they reach the dense woods, a place he didn’t even know existed.
Their surroundings darkened, no ounce of light shimmering down as the sky was covered by foreboding shady glades of trees.
He felt Jungkook stop when they reach a particular lone tree, huge than the others, the trunk of it twisted and knotted making a hollow portal-like in the middle.
The whole trunk was covered by clumps of moss, leaving a dark aura for anyone to cower in fear.
This but in night, dark, and hugee!!! If not, then it's up to your imagination
Taehyung hears Jungkook grunting low from his throat. He lets out a hum in return, his legs tightening the hold as he sat tight on his back, wary of his new surroundings.
Without another thought, the black wolf pushed Tae down the moss-veiled ground.
Tae yelped in pain that shot down his back, clutching his butts in hand.
“What was that for?”,
He questioned his mate who just wagged his bushy tail and turned his back on him to take off. Tae sprung up to his feet, striding towards the alpha
to stand before him, his hands on raised either side of him.
“W-What.. where- where are you going?”
And when the other, without a reply dodged to the other side of Tae, he pulled on the fur harshly, not letting him go any further.
“Where are you going? You can’t sim-“
Before finishing off what he’s about to say, he was pushed back to the tree, his back hitting hard on the trunk.
Opening his shut eyes from the impact he was pushed, his blood ran cold on the savage green eyes looking
straight at him with anger and malice flaming in them.
The hair he pulled up in a bun was now loose and flowing down his chest, making his stomach churn in unknown emotions. His heartbeat accelerated on hearing the other snarl near his face,
his pointed canines flashing as if ready to devour his prey.
Taehyung finds it difficult to swallow when the other raises his hand, placing it near his head, tipping his own head a little to a side.
He feels heat rushing to his face, on finding the alpha eyeing his whole face.
Tae trembled despite controlling not to when Jungkook leans in so close, his breath fanning hot over his face.
“Stay here till I return”, a gravel voice hissed in his ears, unlike the smooth honey-toned voice of how his Kookie speaks.
But none the less Taehyung holds onto Jungkook’s waist, his eyes already glistening with tears,
“Please, take me with you..don’t leave me-“
And yet again he was shoved back onto the tree by his torso, “Do not make myself repeat, Omega!
Stay here until I return”
Taehyung whimpered at the cold harsh tone, pain surging all over his body and tears running down his cheeks.
He lets a soft please, cause he knows where he’s planning to go. He knows cause the blazing hate in his eyes speaks the emotions well.
Maybe at then, he sees sadness and warmth filling it too for a second but then he’s running off. Leaving him behind in the darkness of the foreboding forest.
Taehyung slides down the trunk, weeping loud, his whole body shaking while he hugs his legs
and curls down on his knees.
‘Don’t hurt them..’
He says to himself but hopes the goddess will let Jungkook hear him as his body trembled alone in fear and wrench.
Namjoon was running till his legs hurt, it’s been an hour but they still haven’t had a clue where he took him.
His eyes water, pricking himself with questions of ‘maybe’s’
Maybe he should’ve talked with his brother more. Maybe spend time with him. Maybe gave heart to his words.
No, he can’t let anything happen to him. Oh, by the vain of the goddess, he’ll bleed himself to death if anything happens to his little Taehyungie.
Namjoon fastens his legs, and leaping feet, his snout rising in the air occasionally to sense for any pheromones in the air.
Of course, he can’t smell the Lycaon's. The mutt would be foolish to trail his pheromones off he goes, but he can track Taehyung’s.
Omegas can’t control their scents as an alpha does. But why there are no sweet scents in the air?
It has been an hour. They are searching in all directions of the woods. Running in a circle as they meet over and over again.
There’s no Taehyung or whips of his pheromones.
He sighs, frustrations and worries knotting his mind. He howls in the middle of the forest, letting his sadness known, more like cursing the deity for his brother. He continues to howl, a few following him from distance.
And Namjoon stops only when tiredness hit him and energy drained him dry.
His legs buckle, his heart weeping in the cage of his ribs as he falls to the ground, his mind always running back to sweet Taehyung.
His eyes fell droop to catch his breath before his another round of
search but then the crunching of twigs has him on high alert.
His senses heighten when the brustling of leaves and distant stomping feet were heard aloud in his ears. He circles the ground he’s staying, ready to pounce when no scents fill the space.
No scents, A threat.
The breaking of branches boomed from his right. Turning around, he sets his foot firm on the muddy ground, awaiting the beast.
There amid the bush of leaves, he sees the shadow of him aiming straight at him.
Namjoon narrowed his eyes, his claws elongating to attack. His canines dropped down in bloody rage to tear off the skin.
There, right when the other set off to jump from the bush, Namjoon flies off the ground, tackling the brown wolf on the ground-
In confusion, Joon stumbles back, squinting his eyes on the mewling wolf writhing in the ground.
‘What the fuck, Joon?’ Hobi. ‘I think I broke my ankle again, because of you!’
Angry yells resonate in his link. ‘Hobi..? I thought..? Where were you?’
‘You tell me where was I?! You were the one who sent me to the Lee pack to check documents. But then linked back to return cause you found the rogue!’, Hobi shouts, limping around with his obviously wounded leg.
Namjoon sighed, snout contacting with the other’s leg in an attempt to apologize.
Hobi kicked him slightly away, and Namjoon swears he can see him scowling.
'So, where was the rogue? Oh, I have a news. Your brother was there with Yoongi’s mate-‘
'What!? Where? In Lee pack..?!’'
'No in the manor, but that’s not imp-'
'Said he lost some amulet you gave him.. but listen-'
'What amulet? I didn’t give him any-'
‘Ffs. Listen to me, brother!’
Namjoon shut his mouth, eyes widening at Hobi’s wolf growling back at him. ‘Go on tell me the news’ he muttered.
‘Your brother was there, and please do not panic. Even I just found out by chance.. and I believe it’s the truth. Not that I’m 100% sure
but there are chances that I can be sure. Like.. I think that rogue you found in here,.. not him to be exact, there may be others too.. but I feel like your brother may or may not be mated with this rogue-'
‘Yes, I know Taehyung is mated with this Jeon kid ’
‘What?!’ Namjoon flinched at the high-pitch sound clinked near in his ears.
‘Jeon? You mean /that/ Jeon? He’s alive for real?’
To say Hobi was shocked is an understatement.
Because he was perplexed at the news of another lycaon roaming near them.
And to top it all it’s /Jeon/ Jungkook, the sole Alpha heir of Lemuria Pack, who never backs out or lays down in front of others, is not dead as they thought but alive,
is a terrific death note to everyone.
‘Yeah, he is him. alive and ten-fold malice than before’, Joon sighed walking away to search for his brother’s sweet pheromone.
Hobi was quick to follow him with his series of questions,
‘Then where is he? Why didn’t you tell me before? Does he know Taehyung is with us? Hell, Taehyung knows Jungkook is his mate, right? Then Jungkook must’ve already been in touch with Taehyung.
'Oh, the holy tail of llama! We should’ve been careful. We should return to the pack to assign four more strong warriors to guard Taehyung-
'What are you doing here? We can search for Jungkookie later. First, alert on guards at our border!
Thank goddess he hasn’t taken Taehyung already but he will definitely come for Taehyung! Let’s go back’
Hobi nudged Namjoon to turn back to their pack and when he didn’t budge, he proceeded to bite on his tail to drag him back.
Namjoon yelped, jolting away from Hobi, ‘Oww What the hell!’
‘You don’t want your brother to be safe? What if he comes to take him back as he promised? What if he’s already on his way to our pack to get Taehyungie-‘
‘He already has him’
Joon voiced out in dejection and pain. ‘What?!’
Joon flinched away once again, raising his paw over his head to cover his ears. ‘For the faith of the Goddess, will you stop shouting?’
But the other doesn’t seem to hear his pleas.
Hobi scoffs in their link, ‘Jungkookie sure does keep to his promises’
Ignoring the scowling Namjoon for calling the other with the nickname, his thoughts ran back to the day when they dragged him away from little Tae to the fuming fire.
The day when they thought all ended for good.
He still remembers how even with his death near, his eyes burned with rage as he promised his return, his return they called bluff
All while the cries of 8-year-old Taehyung echoing in the back.
Then, they laughed at him, no 16-year-olds will know their mate for sure, that too if the said mate is half your age.
But now just as he said, Taehyung is his mate. And he has fulfilled his promise.
‘How did he even escape the fire? We did burn them all to the ground’ but Namjoon was already on his way back to search.
‘How come he survived? We surely didn’t miss the counts, right?’
, Hobi asked trudging behind the other.
‘Where is Yoongi? Wasn’t he supposed to be with you?
He is the best tracker in our pack. Link him here. Now’
‘His link is closed. He said he has some important work-‘
Right then, they sensed a shift in the air.
They both stopped in their stance, sniffing the surroundings for anything.
A humming followed by a sing-song whistle mellowed the woods.
Their pulse palpitated on hearing the familiar tune during their childhood. Both slowly turned their heads to the tune.
There, over a few piles of huge rocks sat Jungkook with his legs swaying in the air.
On seeing them look at him, he waved his hand once, his lips still puckered out but the whistling stopped.
“Joonie Hyung. Annyeong!”
The mocking mocking tone of the other not went unnoticed by the two.
“Sorry Hyung couldn’t wish you before with my mate in my arms”, he pressed on the word ‘my’ as if stating that he is back and has his mate right in his arms.
Namjoon growled, already linking any warriors coming to his mind to track back to him
Jungkook jumped down to the ground, stretching his limbs, “Ah”, he groaned in pleasure feeling tense muscles loosening.
“It’s been so long, walking around in humanoid form”
He tiptoed bending backward and then sides as he raked his own body, his back muscles rippling as he stretched.
Joon and Hobi watched how Jungkook ran his fingers down his own body, smirking at his own chiseled abs toned, beneath his hand.
“Wow, I did grow up to be a strong Alpha as you said, Hyung”, He simpered, his eyes glowing evil green back at them.
“Oh, Hoseokie Hyung didn’t see you there! How is the wound in your arm?”, he dipped his head as if inspecting his front legs.
Hobi growled at the mention of it, as Namjoon circled Jungkook.
“Hyung, you know I was not in my right mind that day. You should thank me for not killing you at then”, he smirked, clearly enjoying the anger and annoyance directed toward him.
He chuckled darkly at their reactions but his jaw clenched at Joon’s words, “Where is Taehyung? Give him back to us as he belongs and we’ll let you live”
His mouth twitched, his voice turning bursque at the edges,
“Wrong choice of words, Namjoon”
His lips curved upward as he stepped a few steps back, “He is mine and will always be”
“Then you must be ready to burn again”
“A million times”
He declared before pouncing towards the two wolves already directed at him.
-- My wrist is hurting. So I'll stop here.
I swear! This au wasn't supposed to be this long. I wanted it to end the moment Jimin and Jin finds out. They were supposed to advice Tae to talk to his parents. And get mated and happily ever after
I don't know why am dragging
Thunders roared the woods, tiny pearls of rain turned fat blobs in minutes, draining Taehyung wet all over.
He hugged his legs, face hiding in his knees, not daring to even look up at the foreboding surroundings.
He shivered alone, his body uncontrollably trembling as fear ate him alive.
The droplets turned sharp, hitting hard on the petite omega, who winced cursing at the tar-black sky for ruining this day over and over.
He turned his head to the hollow space of the tree, peeking inside the dark cave for any sort of comfort.
Right then, soul-churning thunder echoed, followed by a bolt of lightning hitting a nearby tree, burning it to the ground.
Tae stumbled inside the next second, wrapping himself in his arms, his body convulsing every time thunder roiled down the ground.
The rain continued to pour down, streaming flood in the abandoned woods,
but Tae somehow felt warm inside the hollow trunk, familiar warmth spreading in his heart.
His tears died the time rain passed over. Taehyung gazed outside, the dark clouds gloomed the sky yet a luminous celestial moon made her presence
as if she’s looking over all her children down earth.
Taehyung spent minutes raking the white-gold ball of beauty engraved, immersed in the untold charm of grey patches adorning her.
He exhaled a breath, looking down at his toes as he swayed a little in his crouching stance.
He buffed on noticing how his nails were gathered with dirt and dried bloods.
His ears perked in alert when he heard silent steps in distance. He didn’t know who it might be, but he can hear the steps slower than any normal pace of walk.
The pungent smell of metallic taste swarmed his sense: they are wounded, he panicked but then his lips twisted in a smirk, then he has an upper hand over them.
He stretched his hand, grabbing a hold of a weak broken branch clogged of being wet with puddled
But that will do. *smirk* If anyone comes near him, he’ll just aim it right in their eyes or nose, and then with his core strength, he can kick them in their shin. That will make them fall down face first *smirk*
then he’ll jump on their back, smash his foot on their face, punch their—
A faint musky scent of burned pine covered him.
His eyes widened, ears shut as the only thing his mind can comprehend now is: Hurt. His Mate. Hurt
The footsteps neared until he saw two dirtied legs in his vision and then Kook’s entering the little cavity of the hollow trunk.
He was covered in a cloth, a shirt ripped to dress his wounds. He looked tired enough to make Tae’s chest tighten in hurt.
He leaped to him, holding him down as he leaned on one side of the trunk.
Tae drove his hands away, to look over the wounds instead got an angry low growl from the other as he shoved Tae slightly away from him.
Tae gasped in hurt and mockery “Do not grr at me and remove all that clothing by yourself”, he shouted at his mate, folding his hands to himself.
Jungkook looked baffled for a moment then smirked a little and let a soft pained whistle “That’s kinky, My Omega"
A second ripped between them as they stared at each other. Tae’s eyes widened, heat covering his ears as blood rushed to his face.
A dry chuckle escaped Jungkook at noticing the flickering of blue sparkles in his mate’s eyes.
His Omega thriving to come out to meet his Alpha.
Tae cleared his throat, he knew Jungkook speaks a little and his green-eyed Alpha wolf speaks more firmer than him, but his heart skips several beats every time on hearing the deep groggy tone of his mate.
He once again approaches him slowly, wanting to undress him, layers of linen falling down his torso as he removes them.
Taehyung hissed, sniffing his threatening tears back in, as his trembling hands grazed slightly on the angry red wound of claw marks
plunged right above the end of his left ribs.
Jungkook winced, the wound festering on the edges grazed by the raw cloth and rain, stinging his nerves when he touched him.
Tae backed away apologetically, butchering his mind with questions of what happened.
His face scraped with scratches, his right ankle swollen purple, was getting too much for Taehyung to take in.
His eyes then ran back to Jungkook’s orbs of beautiful moss green. Jungkook’s heart jabs on seeing a lone tear fall from his mate’s eyes.
His hands reach up to wipe it away but stop in mid-air. He sighs dropping his head low,
“I didn’t kill them”
Rising up again to wipe the tears away with his thumb, “I didn’t kill them, Love”, his hands curved to cup his face softly,
“I didn’t kill them. Maybe hurt a little but none died or injured for life.. Just wanted to warn them to never come inbetween us”
Taehyung tenses not knowing what a little he means but then he smiles leaning into the warm touch of his mate’s cold hand.
“Jungkook, I- Thank you-u”
“Anything for you, My Love”, Jungkook says softly with a little playfulness, his hands running back up to slowly ruffles his wet hair.
Not knowing that he aimlessly making his mate’s belly hurt with erupting butterflies.
Taehyung smiles at him, his bread cheeks showing up despite the aching hurt evident in his features looking back at the wounds. Jungkook tips his head up with his two fingers.
“I am a strong wolf, Love. I heal in no time”, he proudly remarks, somehow relaxing his mate. But then Taehyung whips his head back to him,
“Where’s my brother then?”
Jungkook quips his head a little for him to repeat his question which he clearly understood the first say.
Taehyung sighs dropping his hands on his thigh, "My Hyung. The one stood that before the other wolves and talked with me back there?? Where is he? You went to meet them right?-"
"Ahh Yes you mean Namjoon-"
"And Seojoonie Hyung? Bogumie Hyun-"
“What?!”, both stopped themselves and yelled at each other, for different reasons.
"You know my hyung.. Jungkook.. how do you know hi-"
“It’s Hyung to you, brat!”
“You do go around calling every wolves Hyung.. and not me..? Call me Hyung!”, Jungkook uttered in an annoyed strained voice still in pain.
“-know my brother..?”
And then the Alpha of the two realized the seriousness of the situation.
He blinked back at Tae, various emotions piling up to drop the mood. He turned away to not face him, memories of haunting past resurfacing in his thoughts,
along with sweet memories of them all training and enjoying their days with themselves.
Laughs and chatters echoed in his memories which then morphed into painful cries and mournful howls.
“Of course, I know him”
Taehyung dragged the other’s head back to him, “What do you mean by ‘know’?”
“I know ‘cause I lived with them. Grown up with them..”
“What-t? Then.. then you know me-e as well”, Jungkook mourns at the memory of little Taehyung
running around his leg, following him like a stalker everywhere he goes.
He nods, his lips turning up to a small smile at the memory.
“But I don’t remember you.. why don’t I remember you?”, he stutters out,
leaning in closer to look at those olive green eyes but now darkened with immoral of his past.
“I don’t know.. Maybe cause you were little back then. And all this might’ve been too tough on you. It’s better to not remember than..”,
Jungkook trails, his tone still laced with softness. Taehyung shakes his head violently as he backs away,
"No NO, I don’t understand. Stop being vague and tell me what happened? And how you can remember everything but not us.
Not to note but the human-you didn’t knew anything.. not even the basic knowledge of how to dress. I swear-", he halts on seeing silver lines of tears streaming down Kook’s eyes.
“I made him..”, Kook mumbles, sniffing more like to soothe his bruised pain,
“I made him forget. I shielded him away from the chaos. He was a pup then. Scared and dejected, wary of anyone. The pain was immense for him to take Tae.
So I did what I did”, he cries, his body shaking and his throat tightens when he tries to not sound loud.
Taehyung climbs back in his lap to caress those tears away, not minding his own shimmering down,
“What did you do, Kookie?”
His voice breaks as he continues, “I forced myself out. For years”
There was a pregnant pause. Tae sat frozen, recoiling the words uttered to him.
Jungkook gave him time to take the words, “I forced myself out ‘cause he refused to back down. I trapped him in my wolf form.
He was searching for you, Love. Like a mad man running around in the woods and sniffing for pheromones of your delicate and overwhelming sweetness. I had to stop him. Cause there was no proof of you being alive”
“Why..? What happened?”
Two boys were running down the backwoods, one carrying a gigantic raptor he hunted, and the other following him.
“Jungkook, wait for me, you cheater”, said the one, panting and trying to catch the leading boy.
“Try to catch me then, you duffer”, Jungkook mocked at the latter. He sprinted down to the main street, almost dashing an old woman.
“Oh be careful there, Lil Alpha”, she said in a fragile voice, chuckling weakly when Jungkook bowed before her for apologies.
Looking behind his back at what he was carrying, she crinkled her eyes, “Looks like you did a good hunt”, she remarked proudly.
Jungkook puffed his chest, eyes shining full of pride with legs already beginning to run,
“Yes Nana! Gotta show this to Appa”, he shouted running away.
Soon followed the other one, “Stop lying! Don’t believe what he says, Nana. I was the one who lured that ‘chicken’ for him to hunt”, not even stopping to bow at the old lady.
“You just lured. I was the one who aimed the arrow, so I get the full credit, Yugi”
Jungkook shouted passing through the busy crowds who stopped to look at him carrying a huge predator half the size of him on his back,
“And this is not ‘chicken’ you stupid.
It’s a Vulture”
“Whatever. It looks like chicken to me”, shrugging his shoulders he still ran behind him to catch.
The old woman shook her head with a weak smile, “These kids”, and continued to limp with her unsteady legs.
“Appa!”, Jungkook shouted running to the war grounds crossing warriors in training.
“Appa! Appa?!”, he searched not giving ears to the panting boy behind him, following everywhere he goes.
“Chae Hyun-ssi, Where is Appa? Did you see him?”, asked the wide-eyed male, who was perplexed at the lifeless vulture in his back.
Stuttering he replied, “In-n the tent”, pointing a finger to a small tent outside the ground.
“Thank you, Chae Hyun-ssi”
He watched as the little alpha ran towards the tent, adjusting the glasses he turned around to see another one carrying a handbow, barely bowing as he ran to the tent.
Even if Jeon Pack was smaller in comparison with other packs, with merely 500 wolves, they are known to be the strongest of them all.
Every single Alpha born was gifted with immense power and knowledge, with no gender difference.
Until, their Alpha fell sick, leaving the pack under the control of the Lees.
Jungkook ran inside, yelling, “Appa, look what I did!”, not noticing the tense atmosphere, he stood before his father, dropping the vulture on the rounded table.
Everyone present inside the small tent hissed at the thud sound, the wings of the raptor, spreading the whole table.
Jungkook looked expectantly at his father when Yugeom ran in, “It was me who helped him.
He wouldn’t have done it without me, Appa”, panting and when he noticed several other eyes on him, he gulped, correcting himself, “I mean Alpha-a”
Alpha Jeon laughed, coughing as he wilted to them
with his wounded legs, “You both did great”, ruffling both their heads with his warm hand.
They preened at the praise, smiling at each other as the Head Alpha caressed their cheeks with affection.
“Don’t you think it’s time, Alpha?”, one of them asked. His father’s hand froze on their face, “They are young, Hyuk”
The said man scoffed, “They are 12 years old, Alpha. And look at them, hunting a predator. Don’t you think it’s time?”
Jungkook faced back and forth at them, when Yugeom voiced out, “What time?”
The Alpha whipped them back by their shoulders, forcing them out, “You two go and have your lunch with the pack. We’ll soon head out”
A week passed.
The family of 4 were having dinner. Jungkook feeding his blind little sister, playing with the spoon to the giggling mess.
His father cleared his throat, gaining attention from everyone in the room,
“Jungkook-ah, are you ready to be a real Alpha?”
he asked with sparkling eyes.
His mother winced at her mate, but Jungkook beamed, nodding his head frantically, “Yes!”
Alpha Jeon looked at his mate, who shook her head slowly at him. Nonetheless, the Alpha started, "I heard from Lee that they are training Alphas of every pack to excel in their skills. You'll find many little Alphas like you, eager to be stronger and braver-"
“Powerful!”, Jungkook fisted his hands in the air, then cooed at his giggling sister.
“-yes powerful. Will you like to go there?”
“Yes!”, Kook replied with no thought.
His mother interjected their talks, “Jungkook-ah, You don't have to go there. You're already stronger and braver-"
Alpha Jeon whipped his head fast at her.
"I want you to think clearly before you accept, okay?"
"If you go there, you won’t be able to see us for years..”, his mother trailed, almost sobbing as she ends.
His 4-year-old sister, keenly listening to their conversation, climbed Jungkook’s lap, “Noo!”, shouting, clutching onto Jungkook’s neck with the fear of losing his brother
Jungkook fell silent, ears falling shut to the hisses his father shot at his mother, “Mi-ran ah stop..”
Minutes flew, his sister calming down from her frenetic when Jungkook voiced out, “I will.
I am willing to join there. I’ll train and be a better Alpha for this pack and my family”, said with clear determination.
His sister pulled away from him, grey eyes of disbelief looking back at him. Jungkook watched how his sister’s colorless eyes pooled with tears.
She got up waddling out of the room, wiping her tears, her long hair swaying in hair as her wailing echoed.
Jungkook sprang up, hurrying behind her, “Ji-ha, listen to me..”
Just as Jungkook stepped out, his father fell into a fit of coughs, holding his chest, choking on them.
Worried Mi-ran leaped beside him, holding him by his back, “Will he be safe?”
“Of course, he will be”, he looked adoringly at his mate,
nuzzling her cheek, “He’s our son. He will return stronger and will look after us”
“He’ll be a good Alpha”, Mi-ran muttered, pressing her forehead on her husband’s lips.
“I’m sure he will”
Jungkook and Yugeom stood wide-mouthed at the huge manor in front of them.
They stood with a few more alphas from their pack, more or less similarly aged to them.
They entered the manor, more wolves training, learning to shift, combating with others.
Yugeom hopped, nudging Jungkook every time he notices something new.
As they neared the front entrance, an Alpha much older than them, with a malevolent smirk stood before them, clasping his hands in front of him.
“I’m Lee Jae-Hyuk, the Alpha Apparent of The Lee Pack”, said he with a smugness,
“Welcoming you pups of Jeon Pack to the Lee Manor”, the mockery of calling them pups did not go unnoticed by the new trainees.
Yugeom let a low growl at him, ready to pounce at him when Jungkook held his hands to shush him.
JaeHyuk stood stunned, zipping his mouth when a little pup much younger than him, challenged him with a growl, his eyes glowing green soon followed by a few others.
Laughing it off, he continued “Anyway, who’s the next Alpha of your pack here? Heard he’s joining us this year”
Jungkook stood in front, giving an innocent smile as he bowed before the fulsome Alpha.
Stretching his friendly hands, “I’m Jeon Jungkook! The Alpha next in line for Jeon Pack! It’s nice meeting you”
Jae-hyuk just eyed him repulsively, ignoring the other’s hand as he called someone from behind him with a click of his fingers.
“Yes you pup Jeon.. follow me, I’ll show you the place and schedules for you to follow.
The rest follow this man”, pointing to the one he called,
“He’ll show you the place to dwell for the rest of your period here”, he said curtly, walking in without a further word.
Jungkook turned to his pack fellows, nodding his head at them, setting his bags with Yugeom.
"Goddess I hate him already"
Jungkook eyed him repulsively, curtly asking to be respectful as he followed Jae-Hyuk in.
The training started the next day. Even though the others struggled to cope with the training, it was pretty easy for Jungkook and his pack. Jungkook missed his family and Ji-ha.
Every night before his slumber he reminisces the day he left the pack.
Ji-ha clinging to his leg, wailing at him to stay and waddling after them with her little legs for Jungkook to come to pick her up.
His heart hollows when his mother kissed his cheek, scenting his chest over and damping his shirt with tears.
His father, with a gleeful smile, tabbed his shoulder hugging him to come back as a better Alpha.
He wiggles around in his mattress, in the room full of bunk beds for the trainees, turning to his side to see Yugeom, wiping his face off tears.
He and Yugeom grew together, as a family since the other was an orphan with his only Nana.
He almost lived with them, sleeping in the same room as Jungkook’s and calling Jungkook’s parents his own.
His only family is his Nana, the old lady living near the border, as her son – Yugeom’s father – was once a watch guard for the borders, she chose to stay where his son stayed all his days.
His mind reels back to his own father, once a stronger Alpha now weak and meek because of a silver daggered wound that pierced near his heart, causing his life almost.
He promises himself, to return back soon to his pack and take care of them and his family, as an ideal Pack Alpha his father wanted him to be.
To the manor filled with Alphas and their strong pheromones, entered two omegas guarded by four warriors surrounding them, flaunting their floral scents in the air.
“Why is everyone looking at us?”, the tall one asked, to which the much smaller one answered,
“Because they are spell bounded by your beauty, Hyungie”, his small pudgy hands carrying a little basket as he toddled into the manor.
“Spell bounded? How do you know these words?”, asked the elder.
The latter gasped, his tiny fingers coming up to cover his sleek smile, his lips stretching boxy to form chubby cheeks, “Namjoonie Hyung”
Prattling with a soft chuckle, “He says he is spell bounded by your beauty”
When the other squinted his eyes at him, he turned around, focusing his attention on a group of trainee alphas puddled together, “Look there, Hoseokie Hyung!”
The two followed where the younger of the two pointed his chubby fingers at.
Jungkook stood delighted, skipping from one foot to another, denying all the words the trainer uttered aloud for everyone to hear, praising him and his skill in shifting to his primary form much faster than others.
He covered his ears, blushing hard with his goofy teeth.
He raised his head at Yugeom and was more embarrassed at seeing him clapping his hands with his whole body for him.
The trainer left soon, dispersing the small gathering for the break of the day.
Jungkook turned around, cackling hard as Yugeom hugged him by his side repeating how good he was.
He came to a halt when he noticed two of the alpha trainees stood there.
One with his hands folded in front and the other with his hands draped on the said’s shoulder, with a bored look on their faces.
Yugeom pulled Jungkook back, standing before him as a defense, “What do you want?”, returning the same bored expression.
One of the two with wide eyes talked to his fellow mate, “Is this even possible? Hyung? Have you seen anyone doing this fast?”
He babbled with a series of questions. But the other shrugged his shoulder to get the hands off him, “Ah don’t know. I’m off to sleep”
“Hyung? Yoongi Hyung!”, he called after Yoongi who cracked his neck and paddled inside the manor.
Being left alone, he twitched his mouth in irritation at the two younger trainees, or at least he tried to.
The three of them turned towards the sound to look at the Omegas. Yugeom cleared his throat of non-existent drool,
whereas Jungkook froze with no remembrance to breathe.
“Jin-Hyung? You here to meet Namjoon?”
“Hey! Why would I come all this way to meet him?”, said Jin with annoyed features, “Luna made some food for you three.. and Tae wanted to meet his Hyung”
Jungkook tranced at the little one named Tae clothed simply with his hair combed with a bandana.
His scent was overpowered by Jin, but it still managed to scrape inside his ribs, aching his heart.
His ears fell silent to Yugeom who called him over to feed his hungry stomach.
Tae noticing Jungkook looking back at him showed his ever-favored boxy smile, glistening bright at the shining sun as he waved his hands at him,
not even noticing Hobi snatching the basket from his hands.
Taehyung, with his hands held behind his back and his pudgy legs crossing one another, walked towards Jungkook with a little sway in his stance.
Jin not knowing where to go, followed Tae, clinging to his shirt as they stood before the pup Alpha.
“Hi”, he heard the latter speak, his wolf swooning inside him, as the other held his hands for the other to shake,
“I’m Kim Taehyung, 6-years-old”
And when he noticed the Alpha not moving an inch to shake his hands, he puckered his lips leaning to shake the Alpha’s hand by himself as the other didn’t.
If Jungkook forgot to breathe before, he for sure feels like he lost his soul now.
He felt electricity pass through his veins, stopping his heartbeat and then pumping them full to his face, coloring his cheeks blood red.
His ears heated, eyes widening, unable to rip them away from the pouting face.
He can hear his wolf howling in joy, waggling his tail, reaching out to hold the omega's tiny hands by himself.
Jin gasped on glimpsing olive green eyes at Taehyung that soon morphed to chestnut.
He pulled Taehyung to himself, assuming the younger was scared. But Tae was everything but scared. He let a breathy chuckle, mouth running wide,
“Can you do that again? Those green eyes”
And who was the Alpha wolf to say no to that omega?
He pushed himself out, emanating green eyes at the latter.
Taehyung gasped in surprise, loving the way his own heart running wild at the emerald eyes.
They stood facing each other, holding hands warm to one another, not able to turn away from the sparkling eyes, until a sharp cry pulled them away.
Jin cried out in fear, running away leaving Tae with the trainee shouting, “Joonie!!”
Tae soon pulled his hands away from Jungkook, waddling behind the other, whining, “Jin Hyung”
He stopped right near the corner of the building, to look at Jungkook.
Tae waved his hands with a forced smile on his lips. Then disappeared behind the building, to the dwelling of Kim Pack.
Leaving behind Jungkook, with an aching heart.
Did I bore you all with long intro
It's just.. wanna make strong impression of my characters before the storm comes.. beleive me it's worth it
“He made it hurt..”, Jungkook smiled at nothing with a hand over his heart.
Yugeom panicked, jumping up the bed, yelling, “He did what?!”
Jungkook soared up his own mattress, a hand extended towards his friend to hush him down,
looking around the peeved faces of others in the room.
“Quiet down! Everyone’s sleeping. You wanna be kicked out?”, Jungkook whisper-shouted at him.
“Don’t you think this is serious? He hurt you! We should take this matter to Appa”, Yugeom muttered in low voice,
“Wait! What if they are working with Witches?!”, he palmed his forehead with a wide mouth as if everything is making sense.
Jungkook shook his head, laying back in the bed, a little heart-content smile dancing on his lips.
“My brother, is it hurting bad?”,
Yugeom leaped to Kook’s bed, a hand caressing his sternum with a worried face.
Jungkook hummed, biting his lips, “But it hurts good”, he chuckled at himself
Days turned weeks and he haven’t seen the boy again.
Every time he remembers the chubby cheeks, his heart bursts swirling with unknown emotions.
He wants to meet him again, wants to hear the lispy words other utters,
waiting every day with an expectant heart to see Taehyung again.
Jungkook soon became pretty friendly with everyone, mainly the Kim pack.
Namjoon was the first to reach up to him, inviting him over to their dining.
He refrained from asking about the little omega, and spent all his days enjoying with the rest, bathing, sharing foods, training together, and later at night, squeezing in bed with an annoyed Yoongi as Yugeom did with Hobi.
But he did meet the Omega one day later at night, crying with his brother as the latter tried to calm him down.
Jungkook ran in, sniffing the air for the sweet pheromones, his wolf urging him to take the omega in his arms.
And right when Jungkook entered the hall where the brothers at, Taehyung stopped his sobbing and tilted his head at him, smiling through his reddened bloated face, then soon enough turning in Joon’s arm to hide in the crook of his neck.
And the very next morning was the first time Jungkook talked with him, crouching beside a pouting omega, introducing himself.
Taehyung shied away then, ears heated up red to his neck, looking away from the extended hand of Jungkook, giving his pinky finger to shake.
The days flew by, with Taehyung visiting the ground often clinging to Jungkook, following him everywhere he goes.
Not that Jungkook complained, he pretty much awaited the days Taehyung would show up,
wearing cute shorts and fluffy hair bouncing as he runs up to him.
Jungkook’s heart will become explosive all those nights when Taehyung whines adamant to sleep with him, his wolf growling possessively as he hugs him back, telling tales and nonsensical talks till they sleep.
It was Taehyungs 8th birthday, and he invited him to the Kim pack to celebrate with him.
Jungkook and Yugeom were fighting with each other over who looked good as they made their way to the Kims Region.
It was nearly midnight when they reached Taehyung’s house. The moon loomed bright in the night sky, glowing silvery with her ethereal beauty.
Before Jungkook could knock, the door opened ajar and there stood a woman looking as ethereal as the moon above.
Her hair flowed blonde, eyes illuminating ocean blue as she looked at them in question.
“Taehyungie?”, Jungkook hesitantly asked her.
“Aww come in! I’m Taehyungie’s mother”, she said, and Jungkook loved how her lips turned boxy on smiling
“Ah! You must be the ‘Jeon Jungkook’”, walking them into the house as Kook nodded his head with a bow, “You kids are late. Taebear is on verge of tears. Go on in. He’s by the lawn”
Bowing once more to her, they headed to the way she pointed.
The lawn, was nothing he imagined it to be, filled with flowering plants, a green-carpeted like grass path beaming dark as the moon shone from above, showering the lawn with her radiant lights.
There in midst of sleeping flowers, Taehyung sat, grazing up the moon with a hand supporting his chin.
On sensing Jungkook, he sprang to his feet, and pounced over him in a second, hugging him tight as he cried his heart out, “I thought you wouldn’t come”, he said in a quavering voice, in between his choppy breaths.
“I asked mom to make you cookies!!” he whined aloud.
Yugeom watching them in silence made a face on seeing Tae crying out loud with a wide-opened mouth,
‘Oh gosh he’s ugly’ and rushed out from there to eat the said cookies
Jungkook made him sit on the stone-carved settee, and he hugged the omega to stop his body from shaking.
They both sat there unmoving, waiting for his tears to dry down and for his breathing to come normal.
“Why were you late?”, Taehyung drew away from him, rubbing his palm over his face to wipe his face off tears.
“I was searching to buy you something..”, Jungkook said in low voice. The other hopped a little in his seat,
his swollen teary eyes now gleaming with stars, “You bought me something?!”
Jungkook smiled, pulling out a wrapped cover from the inside of his coat, fidgeting it in his hand, “I was searching for something, and the ahjumma said Omega’s like to wear these..”, he handed it over
to Taehyung who soon ripped the wrappings off the gift.
“Hope you like them..”, Kook trailed, swiping his sweaty hands over his pants.
Taehyung gasped, running a finger on the shining stones, glimmering on the headband.
Jungkook bought him a headband.
Filled with stars and crescent moons.
Tae whipped his head to Jungkook, “I love them, Jungkookie!”, crying yet again, he fell over him, hugging him, thanking him over and over.
That is when Jungkook’s wolf recognized his mate.
Or he knew him as his mate when he first saw him on the training ground years before, or the day they hugged first, their skins brushing together palpitating his heart.
Or it might be the moment, this moment when Taehyung leaned over pecking his cheek,
‘Thank you for coming today, Hyungie’, giving thousands of electrifying emotions inside him.
Waking his wolf’s senses, to call him his mate.
Cause he is.
Taehyung is his mate.
“Taehyung is what?”, Hobi scoffed, falling over his ass on the ground, slapping the muddy floor as he laughed hard.
“You will hurt yourself when you find your ‘real’ mate”, Yoongi muttered closing his eyes and draping his coat on his face to hide away the burning sun
“He is /My/ mate”, Jungkook growled at them, but all they heard is a whine. Yugeom met Hobi on the ground, clutching his stomach from laughing.
“You will believe when he accepts me as his mate too”
Jungkook quarreled the whole day with them
Days continued to go by, seasons changing one by one, pulling the mates towards each other and tying them with an inseparable bond.
Jungkook has grown to be an adult, his muscles building up, once chubby cheeked now morphed with the slickened jaw.
His raven hair now fell near his neck, curly at the edges.
His hands now calloused, and hard from the training and hunts he charged with the others, his body sculpted and taller than most of the warriors.
His wolf was no better, dark and wild, ginormous than every other’s, filling them with envious looks.
He walks down the ground, the muscles of his back flexing with every step he took, more powerful and braver.
He became unstoppable and unwinnable as he grew.
His aura oozed dominance, cowering others with a single look, urging them to submit to him as he pranced.
Everyone feared him, his pack. And people like /him/.
Yugeom was no better, his pheromones turned dark and deadly, growling at anyone who pass him, his canines elongating at any given moment.
The only time he smiles is with his people or with his mate.
Yeah, Yugeom found his mate a year later Jungkook accepted Taehyung as his.
It is weird for everyone, but to the best friends..
It was ecstatic.
And others hated it. Mainly Jaehyuk.
The Lee Pack was known to have the strongest warriors after Alpha Jeon became weak. But now seeing his warriors writhing on the ground in a single punch from /them/ made him mad.
And his fury roused when Jungkook and Yugeom refused to join his troop of warriors, under him.
Jungkook was alarmed at first, but then a few words from Yugeom made him relax. Later, Jaehyuk did not bother them, which eased the tension.
Taehyung preened, like a lovesick teen, wiggling a little in bliss every time Jungkook walked towards him.
He loved spending his days with the alpha, running around with him, helping him with the training, or more like climbing on top of him as he exercises,
as he does push-ups on the ground.
In the evenings, he drags Jungkook to a gazebo situated a little far from the training ground, then sleeps with him on his mattress, hugging him tight to sleep.
Taehyung practically lived there with the trainees, flaunting Jungkook as ‘His’ to every other’s presented there.
Unlike Jungkook, Taehyung was still a little boy, wearing shorts and floral printed shirts dancing his way in and out of the manor.
And when he wants to return home, he takes Jungkook with him to the Kim pack, to his house.
His mother would always welcome him with her arms wide open for him, hugging him and kissing his head.
Taehyung’s father was hard to please, but he did not show his dislikeness in any way for him.
Maybe it’s his face that is bland, Jungkook thought.
When Namjoon came of age and took Jin as his destined mate,
Taehyung cried the whole day asking Jungkook to choose him and only him if the time comes.
‘I promise I’ll cook you tasty foods like my mama’, he said, wailing for the whole manor to hear.
Some days, Taehyung would bring him things called courting gifts.
Starting with a pie and juices until it got weirder and weirder as he started to bring bugs and caterpillars naming them as his babies.
Jungkook loved every one of them, tickling his sides, nuzzling his hair, and took them dearly for his to own.
He fell harder and harder for Taehyung, loving his all sides, ‘whipped’ as the others called him.
There were in the gazebo, one evening as Jungkook lay down to paint his family portrait.
‘Who are they?’
‘Can I meet them?’
And Jungkook promised Taehyung to take him on his coming birthday. Since, its his 18th year, a very important day in the werewolf’s history
Later at noon, Yugeom came to him, with a pained face.
“I feel something’s wrong Jungkook”, rubbing his chest, “I’m going back to the pack to check on Iesul and Nana” and he soon left to Jeon pack.
He didn't wait for Jungkook to answer nor did Jungkook stop him.
As every wolf gets agitated when they feel something wrong with its mate or family.
It was a dead night, Taehyung sleeping on top of Jungkook, nuzzling on his chest, when he heard screams inside him.
Cries and hollers of agony filled him like a nightmare, torturing his mind with possibilities.
Shaking his head, he sniffed the lavender on top of him, to calm down.
But when, ‘Oppa!’, a certain familiar tone of his sister echoed in his head, he sprang up carrying Taehyung in his arms.
He walked to Namjoon, waking him up.
The other shook at his evil green eyes aimed at him, “I’m returning to my pack, Hyung. When he wakes up, tell him I’ll be back”, saying he laid him on Namjoon’s arms.
Tae soon whined, searching for the warmth of his mate in his sleep. Jungkook leaned down, pressing a chaste kiss on his head, caressing it, “Sleep well, Petal. I’ll be back in the morning”
On his way out, his wolf cried at him, yanking his chest apart to run back to his mate, yet the need to return to the pack was heavy, running both their minds berserk. He tried to calm himself and his wolf.
What can go wrong in a single night?
Shit about to go down from here.. And to note that this is my first fic and my first attempt at violence,.
Proceed with caution!
[tw: Blood, Gore – a little..?]
When Jungkook reached the borders of his pack, it was pitch dark with the only source of light being the luminous rays of the moon above and Nana’s house.
It’s past midnight and Jungkook was concerned about why the old woman is still awake.
He stomped up the small stairs, yawning with his sleepy lid shut. The last step to the house slipped him, losing his balance.
Catching himself by holding onto the railing, he thanked the goddess for not letting him fall butt first.
He grabbed the handle of the door.
Something hot and wet met his fingers, the door already falling agape.
Jungkook squinted his eyes to look at what it is, the smell becoming choking pungent in the air.
Alarms blown in his head, petrified he pushed the broken door farther, only to come in contact with a pool of red liquid covering the floor.
“Nana?”, his voice croaked, his body trembling as he carefully entered the house with cautious steps.
Everything was broken, and the walls were scratched with claw marks.
Signs of trouble.
On entering further, near the kitchen, laid a woman covered in her own blood.
It was Nana.
But not intact.
He froze, his muscles seizing as everything around him stopped. He stared at her hoping it is not true.
A distorted scream yet again echoed in his head. Jungkook ran into their pack, unfamiliar pheromones reeked the whole path.
Jungkook blinked furiously, eyes adjusting to the blood-covered streets.
He panicked, heart thumping as every door of his pack were crumbled, windows shattered.
His breathing turned ragged, every cabin of houses
he entered welcomed him with a similar image of people but in pieces.His chest heaved, head spinning around. He tried breathing out, strangled noises of pain leaving his throat.
His eyes filled in horror, fear creeping into his heart. His legs pounded, muscles threatening to seize as he strode to their chalet.
He swallowed, his dry throat gulping as he neared there. The door was wrecked already, as he pushed it open with his blood-smeared fingers.
The hall reeked of agony and misery, pungent with blood. He promised himself no more hallucinations, his body failing on every step.
His blood ran cold, his gaze falling on a woman, laying on the bed. Her gut was sliced open with a silver dagger to her heart.
His eyes blurred, and tears stopped streaming, bewildered at what is in front of him.
“Maa..”, he attempted but croaked out empty breaths. He gulped, hands gracing over her, yet not touching.
He caressed her pale face in his hands, her empty eyes looking back at nothing, “Maa..”, he shook her face, biting his lips hard.
Heavy tears fell out of his eyes, his chest squeezing itself to choke on his wails.
He screamed, trying to wipe her blood-dried strands of hair from her face.
“Maa. Wake up..” he wheezed, suddenly hating everything he ever did.
He should’ve been here, here with everyone. But he did not. He’s lost. Not knowing what to do, what to say.
“I’m sorry am late”, pressing his head on hers, his hot tears falling down her face, “I’m sorry.. I failed you”
Hugging her to his chest, he chanted, ‘I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry’, his lower lip wobbling, strings of saliva trailing down his lips.
He ran out of the room, searching every other corner, around their house. His father is nowhere in sight.
He then halts on noticing their family portrait ripped down by claw marks, in the middle of the hall.
A wave of anger surged through him, taking in the pheromones lingering in the air.
Even though the scents are faint, hidden from scent blockers, he can sniff them, inhaling it to memorize them in his system.
He ran back in, not knowing what to do, where to go. He felt lost.
And every time, he felt like losing himself, he had his mother hugging him, giving him the warmth he needs.
Now she feels cold, her skin bleached and lifeless eyes looking back at him.
He held her in his arms, body violently shaking as he clutched onto her, whimpering aloud.
Looking at her hopeless eyes pained him more as he leaned down to close her eyes, to kiss her cheeks, her head, and left with a silent promise to avenge.
He walked out apathetic, misery and distress clouding his sense. He screamed and screamed, bloods of innocents covering him as a layer of cloth.
He ran feral to every doorstep, hoping to find someone breathing or at least struggling to breathe.
But all he sees are split pieces of his pack members.
A wild growl from his throat filled the pack. He grabbed a nearby broken log and hurled it somewhere, screaming and thrashing as his bile raised.
He roared, thundering on the empty packs, he craned his neck, and everything in him crumbled on seeing the blood-red moon.
Dejected and broken and betrayed, he fell to his knees, snot, and tears covering his face.
Jungkook panted, heavy breaths of nothing but guilt crept him. He hugged himself, nails digging in his skin, bruising himself to draw blood.
“Why..”, he breathed out, shutting his eyes hard to stop the images of what he witnessed,
He yelled, raising to the moon, questioning her, wanting to blame her for everything that happened.
letting his head fall to his knees, his body trembled, quivering as heavy tears shredded out of his eyes.
A faint yelp from the backwoods perked his ears.
His eyes searched, trying to locate the noises.
Another shrill scream yet again resonated from the woods.
Jungkook scrambled up, following the sound, stance steady like a predator.
The screams became clearer and clearer; his eyes became wary of the broken branches dripping red as he nears.
And there, in the middle of puddled fallen leaves, was a creature, a gigantic wolf, feasting on someone, ripping the flesh of their neck with its canine.
The body was torn open, blood pooling beneath him, as the creature spat the raw flesh of his mouth with a satisfied grunt.
Jungkook stood frozen, unable to process what he sees.
He stutters out, his rage to attack now diminished to nothingness as he stared and stared, stuttering out,
On hearing his name, the wolf turned around, green eyes of malice and vengeance looked back at his own, swirling emerald.
And then the next he’s surging towards Jungkook, with bones cracking, shifting to his human form.
Jungkook took a step back before a hefty form fell on top of him. Not being able to process anything, he froze holding Yugeom in his arms.
A pained cry from the other made him dip his head down to Yugeom.
“Jungkook-ah..”, he cried for him, his mouth bleeding with nothing of his own, sniffing as his body trembled.
There were scars, wide and deep oozing out blood. he raised his head to the man laying on the ground faceless, the one Yugeom preyed on.
His hands were holding the weapons of silver, his whole pack was slayed with.
His lifeless disintegrated form emananting the pheromones mingled with de ath, he sniffed on the deceased.
“Jungkook-ah..”, he called for him once again, despite the crying mess he tried to look at him with certain grit
"You need to go-o.. Alert the manor”
Jungkook just laid there, looking at his friend's eyes bleeding red instead of tears,
“Go and Alert the Manor!"
Kook flinched to his yell, “Heard they were going there..”
Who? The assassinators?
A distant crunching of leaves pulled their attention as Yugeom sighed, “I’ll take care of these mutts, you go..”
Yugeom was on his feet in a flash, shifting to a giant beast of a wolf in a whiff of air.
In confusion, he peered up at him.
'What happened to the pack? His father? His-'
“Ji-ah..”, he tried his best to voice out without cracking.
Yugeom stood there for a second, his face saddened with guilt.
He looked apologetic, his head tilting to a mild shake, his lips wobbling.
Then whipped around, taking off in an opposite direction.
Jungkook soon took off, barrelling around the bushy branches of trees, aiming for the manor.
He didn’t know what happened or happening, or what might happen, his mind distorted with the series of unexpected turns.
The thought of Taehyung, his hyungs in the manor haunted him.
What if he’s late? What if he’s late again and only that left is-
He ran, forcing his legs to function, every step becoming unbearable.
He whirled to his left on hearing another set of footsteps, a massive wolf ran trailing behind the scent of tanginess off him.
He followed the other to the manor. Jungkook watched the way the wolf turned to tall man, body torn with wounds and limping as he turned in all directions, alert to his surroundings.
It’s clear he’s searching for something, maybe someone.
Jungkook moved stealthy, his foot not making any sounds as he followed behind him.
And there, by the corner, emerged a hooded figure, and two others armed beside the unknown. The wolf he chased, ran up to him, muttering in his ears.
Jungkook doesn’t quite get what they are talking, but the moment the hood dropped low, he winced.
Loud enough to turn heads.
The wounded man attempted a run on seeing him.
Jungkook romped to catch the wolf, but soon his arms were held at his back
by the two armed warriors.
Jungkook struggled, writhing in their hold to let free, “Hyung.. he.. he I saw him running from my pack Hyung! There- There-e.. Everyon-ee iss”
He stuttered, fighting his words out as tears flood his face, he whispered, “Dead-d..”
Jungkook raised his eyes at JaeHyuk, “Everyone is k!lled.. They killed everyone!”, he yelled, thrashing to get himself out of the two boulders.
The misery of dread mislaid him off his strength, making him weak in his heart and himself.
JaeHyuk sighed pinching his nose, “Why are you Jeons making it hard for me?”, he exhaled loudly, cracking his knuckles.
Jungkook blinked his eyes, the calm and irritated actions of the other weirded him out, “Hyung..?”
The boulders holding him snickered sickeningly near his ears.
Jaehyuk scoffed, then is laughing out loud, making the others cackle at him too.
Jungkook tightened his jaw, teeth clenching, “You bstard!”
But before he could escape the hands, something sharp and cold pierced his back, slicing through his waist.
The burn of the weapon made him breathless, shooting up his spine.
And a sharp kick to his shin, made him fall to the ground.
Jungkook curled on himself, pain blinding his eyes, moaning at the scrutinizing burn spreading his skin.
Jaehyuk puckered his lips in a fake pout, “You should’ve stayed in the manor then. Why did you have to see all those?”
His skin burned, eyes blinded in the pain, torturous. He felt going insane, scream strained in his throat.
"What should we do with him"
Clicking his tongue, JaeHyuk commanded the two boulders, “Drag him to the chamber downstairs”
“And k!ll him"
[tw: De@th, Gore, An attempt at violence again, mentions of disturbing scenes, ..but not too disturbing , Hot Jungkook]
[Proceed with caution]
The two warriors were baffled at what Jae-hyuk said.
"You said you want /them/?"
“What? I can always make one in the future. But I hate leaving messes”, Jaehyuk muttered.
“Why?”, a strained voice interrupted Jae-Hyuk, “Why!? Why did you do it”
“Why?”, Jaehyuk scoffed, wiping off his smile, he clenched his fingers, “I didn’t mean to k!ll them. But your father. That useless nothing was asking for it. Revolting?
Against me? Did he actually think he would win against the warriors of The Lees?”
“Yes, dear. Revolt”
Jungkook squinted his eyes, body paralyzing, getting weaker and weaker. The effect of silver jabbed in him, poisoning his blood.
Jaehyuk voice tuned an octave down, merely a whisper away from him,
“You see you are powerful. Stronger than any wolves. Ever wondered why?”, he raised his eyes in question at him.
Crouching down to take Kook’s chin in his hands,
“It’s me. I made you. Alphas of every pack joined hands for me to create /you/. Inducing dominant traits of a poor Lycaon into your pregnant mother. I made you to be this powerful!”
He boasted, thinking back to a /man/, lost his way turning to Lee’s for shelter, a few weeks.
But the strength he carried was no match to any wolves.
The period of war with other creatures and the drought made everyone think elsewhere.
Looking at the Lycaon, summoning every other beast to his feet, made them gluttonous for the power he owned.
The man who came for refuge stayed to protect them from crazy berserkers and deathstalkers but ended up as prey to the strings of wolves possessed by greed.
“Of course, there were disasters. After trials of failures and ruins, I created you. Powerful Lycaon in Wolf’s History!”
“But your old man had a change of heart. He acted according to his pricking conscience and stood against me. So I had to do it. Just a wedge in his heart with a silver ax”
His hands portrayed the way a knife slicing the heart, “He fell to his knees before me,
“Oh I loved seeing him as a lifeless nothing”
Jaehyuk then whined with fake innocence, “I had to stop it there but your pack revolted against me with your ded old man.
"I hate messes, Jungkookie. So why not join them with their dead Alpha..?”
Jungkook screamed, throat straining, his face reddening at the intensity on seeing JaeHyuk leaving with no further words.
His eyes shone with loathing and yearnings and desperation. His mind blurred, not even caring when someone gagged him with a cloth.
A hard kick in his gut, made him topple again to the ground, blood soaking out his lips.
Yet his eyes stayed on the retreating figure of Jaehyuk,whistling with a little dance.
His mind reeled to his pack. Nana. His mother. His Father.
𝐼 𝘩𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑚𝑒𝑠𝑠𝑒𝑠.
His mother, gut opened, alone in their once warm chalet.
The once smiling face, tearing happily as she asked him, ‘𝑌𝑜𝑢’𝑙𝑙 𝑡𝑎𝑘𝑒 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑜𝑓 𝑢𝑠 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑡𝘩𝑖𝑠 𝑝𝑎𝑐𝑘, 𝑟𝑖𝑔𝘩𝑡?’
𝑊𝘩𝑦 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑗𝑜𝑖𝑛 𝑡𝘩𝑒𝑖𝑟 𝑑𝑒𝑎𝑑 𝐴𝑙𝑝𝘩𝑎?
The mocking smile echoed in his ear.
His body spasmed, wrath and rage surged him. His pupils dilated, as he felt himself awakening something, /in him/.
A burning flame rose from the pit of his heart, pounding hard in his chest as his blood began to thrum.
He began heard everything, the heartbeats, the sweat dripping down their chest, and his blood trickling to the ground, clearly.
And the next second he opened his eyes, the air around him turned dark, shimmering with an evil aura.
The boulders fell to their knees one by one. Not abling to stand the aura, baring their necks for him to control.
They shivered, flinching as they submitted themselves to the Lycaon without their will of heart.
One of them raised his strained hands, to hold Jungkook with his scalding hands.
Jungkook pried them away, twisting it till he could hear the cracking bones.
Another hand blasted into his torso, talons drawing out blood. Jungkook plunged his dropping canines into it, tearing the flesh raw.
He had them in a chock hold, tightening them until he felt, his fingers dive in, squeezing their gullet as their life oozed out of the eyes.
He swept himself up and trailed towards the way Jae-hyuk disappeared. His back throbbed, the wound of silver turning toxic.
The iron door was kicked open, crumbling down as the few warriors guarding it ran towards him.
He pranced, staggering a little,
Attacking the nearing warriors, ripping heads, squeezing their throats as they fell one after the another.
Eyes blasting out their heads, as if attacked by unknown blazing powers.
He kept moving, blood squirting everywhere, leaving behind a path flooded red.
In the next breath, he stood before ‘The Officium’
Jaehyuk was leaning on a cushion, legs raised on the table as he rested there, calmly.
Jaehyuk reared up alarmed when he heard something smashing into the door.
And there stood a boy, unfamiliar from before stared at him with eyes ferocious green. A dark haze formed around him, as he flared his canines at his prey.
Jaehyuk nervously smiled at him, “Jungkook..?”
“You said you created me”, a voice deep and raw vibrated his skin, “didn’t know the outcome?”
Jungkook leaned towards him, face to face, eyes to eyes, shimmering with mocking malice.
“A Monster. Created by you. To destroy you”
Jae shivered, “Jungkook-shi, we can talk-k”
He scoffed at the panicked tone of the other.
“You are the best Lycaon I’ve ever created. Join hands with me. I can show you a whole different world”
“You ruined my world!”, he thundered, bile rising to his throat at the memory of everything.
Hot tears brimmed down, his finger jabbing his own chest as he uttered the words. Forwarding to him as Jaehyuk stepped back.
“You ruined everything! You destroyed everything! Slaughtered everyone-e!”, Jungkook yelled with his entirety.
Jaehyuk tripped, falling on his back with a yelp. His hands flew over to shield himself.
Jungkook towered above him, his palm lying flat over Jaehyuk’s chest.
His rasping voice turned to a wail then, “You destroyed My world-d. A world I.. I was happy with My family.
A world with My Pack”
His fingers started to dive in, tearing the skin, as they plunged in. Deeper and deeper.
“So, tell me what should I do, Hyung-nim?”
His fingers came close to the other’s heart. A second away from ripping it out of his chest.
“I hate messes too”
But before he could, Jaehyuk heaved his arms out of his back. Blowing something out of it.
A powder, misty and dusty flew towards Jungkook, entering his nostrils.
Jungkook squeezed his eyes shut, staggering back. His eyes irritated, a dull roar emerged from his throat.
Coughs erupted from him, shaking his head, fanning his face to get rid of the dust. His head throbbed, feeling dizzy and wobbly, eyes watering in irritation.
He pondered on what it is, when he heard a snicker.
Then, was pushed back down, as JaeHyuk now towered above him,
hauling a shining dagger, made from pure melted argentum, out of his drawer. And aimed it over Jungkook.
“That powder”, a breathy laugh aimed to ridicule him, “is the grounded form of Aconite roots”
He squatted on top of Jungkook, reliving when Jungkook eyes shifted hazel from verdant green, energy dropping low as the toxins entered his system.
Jaehyuk sunk the blade down into his shirt, the tip tearing Jungkook’s skin lower his ribs.
“Mixed with Argentous. To make it /more/ lethal”, he twisted the blade inside him, blood gushing out to soak his shirt.
Jungkook felt his veins pop out, the pressure of the knife in him making him more vulnerable.
His eyes rolled up by the aching pain. His hands blindly searched for something. Anything.
There, by his side, was a wooden plaque. He struggled, one hand trying to clench on JaeHyuk, the other trying to grasp the plaque.
And when he got a hold of it, Jungkook hefted it, slamming it straight across Jaehyuk's face.
The plague cracked, breaking down to crumbles.
Jungkook panted, breathing hard when the weight on top of him lessened.
Jaehyuk fell off, roaring when few pieces plunged in his face, eyes swelling purple in seconds.
The blade was thrown off somewhere, somewhere under the main table.
Jungkook got up to his feet, wheezing out his breath, a hand pressuring his opened skin to stop the bleeding.
Jaehyuk groaned at him, his eyes sharp at the Lycaon. A stray of blood smeared down from his nose.
He growled, getting up as he lunged at him with his elongated claws.
And Jungkook was fast enough to pull on one of the table’s legs, heaving it at Jaehyuk.
The other smashed himself on a rack of books, which collapsed down on him, books heavy like tons falling on top him with force.
Jaehyuk still managed to surge forward his claws wedging a new opened straight cut in the span of Jungkook's chest to his abdomen.
Kook screamed, eyes turning hunt green again in defense. He romped forward ripping off the retreating hand, which dared to claw him, from it's body.
Jaehyuk screeched, holding onto his now half hand, as blood spurted all over, painting him dark red all over.
He growled, shrieking at the top of his lungs, pushing the table off him.
The table that smashed him once, now propelled back, knocking Jungkook down to the ground.
Why can't they stop fighting now let me take a break
The wounds caused by silver, opened and tore his skin yet again, blood rushing out as he fell hard in the floor.
He felt dizzy, eyes drooping in tiredness and by the effect of poisons inside him.
Jaehyuk once again lunged at him, sharp canines dropped with an intent to kill.
Jungkook sighed, the table in the middle of the two as a defense was now pushed away to a wall, as the other surged toward him.
He moaned, eyes rolling behind his kids, and his chest tightening on raw aches.
Defeated and dejected, he silently cried for the goddess above.
Wild and glisten in the dark room, caught his eyes.
The silver blade.
He caught it in a swift, reflexes fast. Plunging it in Jaehyuk, in between his neck and his shoulder.
Jaehyuk choked on top of him, a faint grip at where the blade is jabbed
Jungkook pushed the other off him, diving the knife deeper, “For my Mother..”
Pulling the knife out, reliving the way veins from where he punctured the blade turning black, spreading to his jaw and collar bones, “For my pack..”
His eyes were manic, snarling as he raised his other bare hand, plunging it back to his chest, reopening the wounds he caused before.
Ripped the heart out of him, leaving his chest gaping wide at him. Empty.
“For every other lives, you took”
Jungkook stood up, squeezing the heart dry of life, exhaling at Jaehyuk’s lifeless eyes and opened mouth.
He watched the way the lifeless eyes turned black, skin writhing as blood pooled around the two.
He, himself reeked of pungent scent, covered in sweat and blood.
A faint noise outside the officium made him turn his face.
A little boy, looking younger than Taehyung flinched at him and ran from there.
Jungkook panted, calming down from the rush of adrenaline he and his wolf had..
Then the realization dawned.
If the fight is bad, don't blame me.. i did my best
I am sorry if the details are vague, my head is paining alot and I have this surgery scheduled this Tuesday I may rewrite, if i plan on uploading it in ao3
[tw continues for faint souls ]
Chaos erupted. Screams and growls of wolves exploded in the Manor.
The gũn shots and howls of pain went unheard as Jungkook ran to the Kim dwellings.
He strode out to the ground, every wolf down with a Lycaon fighting them to the ground, ripping each throat
Jaehyuk for sure created many of them, from different packs and different regions, Jungkook thought.
There somewhere in the middle, was Yugeom, tearing a wolf in two, and throwing the pieces elsewhere.
His eyes were feline black as dark wells, looked back at him, nodding
once at Jungkook.
Yugeom looked tired, body covered with wounds of all kind, not healing but agape.
His eyes were crimson red, greenish hue covered with blood trailing from his wounds.
Jungkook felt no ounce of strength to nod back. He stumbled, panting and wheezing as he limped to the Kim's, far behind from the main ground.
The hall was empty. No reverberations of any heart beats.
Where is Taehyung?
He ran back to the ground, eyes searching for his mate or at least his family, his brother.
He searched frantic, dodging every attack, not wanting to fight back.
His wolf was dejected, being hurt and lost all his family in one night, he buried himself within Jungkook.
Guilty for becoming the beast Jaehyuk wanted.
Killing his own, even though they deserved it.
Even when Jungkook pleaded at him, his wolf repressed from coming out, traumatized by the image of his mother, his pack.
Haunted by himself.
All he wanted was his mate. His Taehyung. To lay in his lap as Tae braids his hair strands and decorates with his flowers.
His legs turned weak, with each step he stumbled more.
Something hard and harsh was thrown at him, hitting sharp in his head.
Jungkook weakly growled, with a hand in his head where he got striked.
His hands then covered with warm red liquid.
He turned around in a swift to catch the attacker, fortuitously wondering how he's still able to function.
It’s Jung Hoseok.
He sighed in relief, “Ah Hyung.. I was searching for any of you”
But Hobi was not pleased to see him. His eyes held hurt and betray.
“You traitor!” A punch to his gut pushed Jungkook away in a force.
“You power-hungry betrayer!”, now a slap to his cheek, but with his talons. Long stripes of three claws marked his cheek and neck with red lines, new stream of blood emerging.
Jungkook hissed in pain, a low growl thrummed from his throat. But he calmed himself.
He needs to find Taehyung.
“Hobi-Hyung..”, Jungkook attempted and was thrown off-guard when the other pounced on him, claws digging right where the silver poisoned wounds were etched.
He winced, yelping, staggering back a few steps.
His whole body throbbed, covered with wounds and poisons.
A drop of blood from his head trailed down, blurring and masking the sclera of his eyes.
Yet, balancing on his foot and desperate, “Do you know where Taehyung is, Hyung?”
Hobi scoffed, “What? You want to see Taehyung?”
Jungkook wobbled, not knowing the root of hatred advanced at him, still waiting for his answer.
He felt the way Hobi’s eyes burned him. The abhorrence from one of his brothers made him quiver in torment.
Hobi clenched his jaw, “You think he’ll like to see you after you slaughtered your own pack?”
His words dripped with hostility and venom.
“What-t? I didn’t.. No. I didn’t. It-t was not me-e..”
Hobi scoffed, jerking him back a little, “Everyone heard what happened, Jungkook. No one gonna believe your tell-tale lies”
“Hyung, It was not me. I didn’t do it.
How would I do that to my own family?”, he whispered softly, pleading as tears leaked from his eyes.
“I don’t know. Why don’t you tell me? Was it worth it? Killing your /own/ family? Slaughtering them as a butcher? Did you feel good?”
Blood ran cold, chilling his spine, fracturing his heart.
“What did you feel then? Still hungry for power? After what you did do? To your pack. To your mother. To your father”, Hobi punched him with each word, wounding.
Jungkook growled an anguished sound reverberated off him.
“To your sister?”
He flinched then, his breathing came ragged with a roar escalating from his throat.
His body trembled in wrath as he lunged at Hobi, wrung him in the air, kicking him straight to the Stonehenge.
His back hitting hard into one of the standing cromlechs, Hobi slid into the ground so hard, that he heard bone and the rock crack.
He fell knee-first to the ground, his left leg twisting as he let a feral noise.
Jungkook snarled at him, a flash of his wolf seen in his eyes.
“Didn’t knew we lived with a monster”, Hobi voiced out in pain and perfidity.
Jungkook's wolf howledin shame, not bearing to see his face anymore, he fled the place, cowering in himself.
Jungkook ran in the direction of Yugeom, with the lingering pain from his unhealed wounds.
A wolf launched at him out of nowhere. Jungkook tackled him to the ground, forcing submission with his tired yet spiteful eyes, till the said ran away yelping.
A few pounced him, but all it took were mere seconds as Jungkook surged towards Yugeom.
“They are too many-y, Jungkook-ah"
Yugeom muttered, face paled, lips twitching in shiver.
"And have poisonous weapons. Our men are failing”
Yugeom looked lifeless, his eyes greyed with grief.
Jungkook refrained from asking how he is. Sure of what the answer will be.
Yugeom was barely standing, tripping any given moment, fresh wounds and clear cuts covered his skin, torn shirt drenched dark red.
Jungkook looked around, troops and troops of new warriors landed, with packs of wolves descended the ground to fight them off.
His heart pained on how he can see his own packmates laying ded it wounded to de@th, in the mud, pooled with their blood.
He yelped in confusion when Yugeom fell plaint in his arms.
He leaned closer to him, slapping the other's cheek hard, shaking him awake, crying out to reveal the aches clogging in his chest.
Yugeom was choking out words at him, blood spurting as he says,
"Is-seul.. Jung- Iseul-l.."
His head throbbed with uncertainties and fears. He held Yugeom close to his chest, patting his cheek, wordlessly pleading at him, that he did good.
And when the breathing stopped with his heartbeats, his eyes zeroing on nothing as if frozen,
His own world fell silent, the roars and growls of wolves fighting heard distant. The wounds of his, blackened, sucking his blood dry.
Jungkook exhaled at the sky, clutching onto Yugeom tight, praying to any goddesses up above that he should've heard his pleas.
I need a minute my heart aches for Yugi
A distant cry in silence.
𝑇𝑎𝑒𝘩𝑦𝑢𝑛𝑔? A sound shrilled in his ears.
Kookie. A newfound strength, stood him up, functioning his legs forward. To the sound.
Jungkook staggered and stumbled, holding his bleeding waist, he moved towards his mate.
In the clearance in midst of the woods, an omega hurried towards him.
“Oh, Kookie. You are hurt. You are bleeding so much”, his words quavered, as he ran up to him.
“Are you okay? Are you hurt?”, he caressed his bloody fingers on the teary face of his omega.
“I’m fine and you are not”, Tae wailed.
“I’m fine.. come on, let’s take you out of here”, Jungkook grabbed Tae’s hand and dragged him to walk. But Tae stood froze.
“Hyung said to stay away from you”
‘𝐾𝑜𝑜𝑘𝑖𝑒.. 𝐼’𝑚 𝑠𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑒𝑑..’
He halted, words dragging daggers in him. Turning around to face his omega, he felt disgusted at himself for letting his mate see him covered with blood he /slayed/.
“Are you scared? Of me?”
The little hesitance stretched between them, shattered him.
The feeling of hopelessness returned, haunting him. The little hope that sparkled on hearing Tae call for him, now vanished to emptiness and void.
“There he is!”
They sprung towards the voice, three wolves aimed at them.
“Taehyung-ah, we have to go!”
He picked Taehyung up, letting him straddle his waist, and he ran.
Gunshots echoed, shuddering them both. Jungkook hugged Taehyung, covering him, shielding him from any bullets.
His vision blurred to a reddish hue, and his body flinched as bullets stuck to his back.
Taehyung noticed how new trails of blood formed in his chest, his torso, and his gut.
“Nonono”, Taehyung chanted, his little hands trying to stop the bleeding.
Jungkook wanted to assure his petal, that it's nothing, it's not paining.
But he can’t, he can't stop now, he can’t let them hurt Tae, he can’t let them take Tae away, he can’t-
A bullet pierced his thigh, diving in his tendons, forcing him down on the ground.
The hold he had on Tae loosened, involuntarily letting him fall out of his grip.
He screamed hard, as he watched Tae being carried away.
He thrashed on the ground, a feral and desperate scream tearing from his throat.
A rope circled his body, pinning his arms to his sides.
He writhed in pain, as it burned his skin, digging in his flesh.
With his blurred eyes, he saw Taehyung safely held in Namjoon’s arms.
Though he was squirming in the hands of Namjoon to reach him, crying for him.
But 𝘩𝑒 𝑤𝑎𝑠 𝑠𝑎𝑓𝑒. More than he would be with him.
He forced a smile at him, hiding the painful burns on his skin,
“I’m gonna be fine..”
But, Taehyung shook his head, tears streaming, “Jungkook”
“Take me back..”
He did nod, sealing a promise with his eyes. He didn’t knew if he would, yet he promised him as they pulled him away.
His legs failed to hold him up as they dragged him away by the rope.
He stopped struggling, the more he struggled, the tighter they knotted him.
He tried to open his falling eyes once more. For his Taehyung.
“I’m not scared of you..”, his mouth moved.
This time, Jungkook smiled genuinely at him.
Taehyung was not scared of him.
He was not scared of the monster he had become.
He’s not scared of 'Him'.
His resolve flattered, strength leaving his body, as crying Taehyung disappeared from his eyes.
His eyes fell shut, feeling himself being dragged far away from the scent of lavender, tied up somewhere.
He struggled to even breathe.
He sensed something starting to burn. Skin stroked with blazing flames.
The fire roared all over him, shrill screams surrounded him.
Yet all he heard is the distant cry of his love. To come and take him back.
Dull and murky clouds formed as faint thunders rumbled the woods.
Early birds took their flight amidst the drizzling rain wetting the ground. In the lustering morning light, hidden beneath the dim rainy fogs,
sniffles and hushes of sweet nothings were heard, soothing enough to calm the blooming buds wildly gushing to the barren winds.
Inside the jagged bent tree, Taehyung had his arms wrapped around Jungkook, mumbling soft serene words, clutching him tight to give him the warmth he had been robbed of all these years.
His lips trembled in the crook of the neck, his hands circled around the other’s nape as he tried to muffle his own tears.
Though his memory blurred him of what happened, though his mind went shabby off the days he spent with Jungkook.
His heart still thrummed in the cage of his chest, as if it could understand the pain Jungkook went through. His hairs raised off his skin on hearing the cruelty as they once again lived those torrential days
The alpha wolf struggled to form the words, his heart troubled on reminiscing those dark days, which he tried so hard to bury within.
The little mumbles of no’s from his mate were heard, silently begging him to not be in pain anymore.
But he knows, Taehyung has an equal right to know what had happened, and why had it happened.
He hoped Taehyung could understand without being in dark anymore, despite his desperate attempts to form any coherent words.
But his memories strayed then, stopping where he was being pulled away from Taehyung.
The memories turned hazy hues and only caught up to a white ceiling full of scolecite gemstones.
He felt vulnerable then, laying down on a flat stone, immobile, as if his hands and legs are tied up. His whole body burned as if scorched in heated flames. His consciousness drifted on and off from then, until he forcibly pulled himself up, coercing his human form to move.
Jungkook grew up to be a man meek in heart, easy to trust others, accepting every truth the others stretched out to him. But, unlike him, his alpha side was rugged and wicked.
When the human was filled with colors and yips of happiness, his wolf took in the cold darkness and lived a life full of dread. When Jungkook thrived livelily, his wolf screamed of death.
Yet, the alpha in him never wanted the lifeless merciless side of him to affect his humanity.
Though he was cruel to everyone, he never wanted the pain to inflict on his human side.
So when the wolf crawled away inside, to the depths of their soul, scurried away to hide from the destructive ache of betrayal and falses that they encountered, he felt as if he failed everyone, failed himself.
He was known to be heartless and fearless, but now hiding inside his human, the alpha felt chagrined to even face his other form.
Not able to communicate with his wolf, or able to grasp where he is, Jungkook turned manic.
He didn’t knew where he is or where he is aimed at. The paths turned fuzzy, mind hazed confusing his systems.
Sometimes he heard his wolf scream at him, yelling to get a grip of himself.
And sometimes he didn’t even knew who is screaming at him, for he only aimed to reach what he was desperately trying to find. Like he’s been designed to search for it.
Jungkook felt lifeless, colorful woods filled with vibrant flowers and picturesque surroundings, turned red in time, as if someone draped a carmine veil over his orbs.
He searched for days, as it turned months to years, never knowing what he is particularly aimed for
He turned weaker and weaker, refusing his wolf’s any advance to help, barely remembering his other side existed. He turned berserk, like a mad man, tired and drained of everything he had.
He settled in a hollow space, scraped inside a tree, and waited and waited with nothing but repeating the word ‘mate’, even though his mind robbed him of what meaning the word held.
Jungkook never gave in to his wolf, so the Alpha in him had no way but to force Jungkook to be trapped in their wolf form, to withstand the hard ground and fluctuating weathers.
He didn’t know then that’ll make him amnesic,
and eventually will turn him into a beast with reddened eyes.
He crumbled inside the hollow darkness, vague of feelings but always waiting for something. Anything. To escape this emptiness.
Everywhere he ran seemed the same, like a trap inside a maze, with no out. The purpose of everything blurred leaving no edge, losing a part of himself as time went. He felt hopeless, like a bird trapped in a broken cage, until..
A weird sensation awoke him. It was mild, at a whip of fading away. But Jungkook wanted more, to inhale everything, to devour this new feeling.
He ran, following the trail, his gut hurting good as he neared,
yet drenched in fright when an eerie sense caught his throat.
There were many, who stopped to look at him. The happy scents he once followed now faded to new uncanny pheromones, dark and rage-filled.
Every time he ran following the sweet scent that made his mind a mess, wanting for more, he turned back wounded, scarred, bleeding for days with at least a disfigured limb.
And never did he find that aching sweet pheromones the others laced with.
But he never stopped, never knew why he didn’t, until the time came, and he met the one.
The one who carried the strange musky pheromone he hunted for, the one who seemed to fill the void in his chest. The one who made his lifeless heart forcibly pound inside his chest.
Confusions twisted in him. Who is this? What is it?
Yet a new hope bloomed, shuddering his senses with relief and happiness..? He heard someone in him, who creeps him at times, now scraping inside again.
His wolf felt life coursing through them, thriving in deep, spreading to all senses. They found their mate. His mate.
Taehyung.. He was gorgeous.
No. That’s an understatement. Cause the raven wolf felt the breath knocked out of him. Knots formed in his chest, stomach tugging in wonders and allure, his mate emitted.
He was no longer the pudgy kid who followed him around. He’s now grown to be an adult, ethereal and gorgeous.
His eyes held him in captivity, enchanted mists swirled in them, his blonde strands danced fore to his brows, to the tune of the breeze.
He’s grown, to be an omega. His omega. The one Luna chose for him. Destined for him, across the stars, bonding them together as one in the soul. His mate.
His mate is right here. With him. After years of searching.
The alpha felt ecstatic, howling inside, asking his human to let him out, though the other didn’t know he existed. He wanted to meet Taehyung, his mate, to bond with him, and to belong as one.
But, his links were painfully cut through by something sharp. The links met with Taehyung, but not with Taehyung’s wolf.
It’s as if the omega had no wolf. Or his wolf mate is rejecting his link.
He passed more elements of sensations, desperately trying to reach his omegan wolf. But failed to reach the bond.
A sharp alarm blew inside his head. Pain coursing through the expanse of his being. He felt alone again.
Though he had Taehyung, he had no wolf, he had no wolf mate.
He slowly crept in, pushing the secondary form out. Jungkook shifted to human after years, his bones cracking and mending to form a newer shape, one he didn’t knew he would be able to.
He trusted his instinct and shifted, unconsciously letting his wolf scurry deeper into their core.
Now that Jungkook met his mate, his wolf thought, everything would return back to normal. But no it didn’t.
Everything returned, the dark days seemed to repeat once more. So, he took Tae away from every threat, took him away to the hollow space that once gave him the protection and the feeling of secure, when none did.
Now some know, and the word might spread out about who he is, what he is.
The threat may return anytime soon. But he would never let anyone hurt him or his mate, anymore. He would fight if needed. He would not hesitate to kill, if it becomes inevitable.
If needed, the alpha is ready to turn to the beast he is, and become the nightmare everyone feared he is.
But never would he let them have their way again. He would never let their life touch the dark edges as before. Jungkook would never let go of Taehyung, ever again.
He let his human take control again.
Taehyung pulled himself off Jungkook when the other began to tremble in his arms. He raised his hands, holding his face, “Kookie? Hey.. Jungkook?”
He searched his face for answers, Jungkook’s shaking terrible, shivering as his face paled in his arms. Taehyung shook him, gently grazing his cheeks, “What is it? Baby,?”
And that’s when he noticed the hazel orbs instead of those sea green, the one that belonged to the lycaon wolf. The man right here in his hold is Jungkook and not his alpha.
Jungkook looked frantic, dark memories unleashed for him to take it all in.
The pain became overbearing, as he took in the days he enjoyed with Taehyung morphing then to his parents butchered, then to his pack, massacred in the cold ground.
He can hear Taehyung call for him, his wolf reaching out to him, but his senses seem to be stuck, as his brain etched every detail once again.
His eyes cleared as he looked at Taehyung. It was surreal that he has Taehyung right here with him now.
His racing heart calmed when his eyes found the lune encaptured, tear-stained dark eyes looking at him. His scent, floral with a hint of spicy bergamot, is still the same. He looks the same. Ethereal.
His hands raised unaware, wiping those tears off his face, dried blood off his cheek.
Tae sobbed, jerking his head in a nod. Jungkook exhaled harshly, pulling Tae in a hug, hiding beneath the blonde locks, and wailed like a little child.
He was unable to stop the tears, that flooded out his eyes. He pulled back to see him once again, to make sure that Taehyung is real.
He is real. Taehyung hugged him back, hushing him from his shuddering sobs.
“You are here”
“Yes Jungkookie, I’m here”
, said he in small voice
Jungkook whimpered in a silent cry yet again, new trails of tears leaking out. He clutched Taehyung tight, squeezing him hard as they held each other.
He felt Taehyung nuzzle his hair, his neck, then his throat. Scenting him, to make him feel at ease.
Jungkook did the same, rubbing his earthy pine scent on his mate, pressing feather-light kisses to his neck, jaw, and his hair.
He inhaled the lavender pheromone, the one he had been searching for years, without a meaning. His heart fluttered to hold Taehyung again after years.
Now everything made sense, the troubles of vague searches. He has found him now.
“I missed you-u"
Taehyung choked on a sob, nodding his head as he leaned to Jungkook, lightly smooching his lips, passing wild current all over Jungkook.
The other smiled between his tears, caressing Taehyung’s wrist then sliding up to his shoulder then down. They pressed their heads together, sniffing and smiling, relishing in each’s presence.
Taehyung didn’t know why he can’t remember anything. His wolf remained silent, always being hidden and only surfacing when it has anything to do with his mate.
He can feel her, howling in him, a faint sense of her rejoicing yet he couldn’t hold out to her.
So, his own self memories remained tethered. Seokjin once slipped that he was sick.
Maybe he lied too, like everyone else, he thought.
He need to push his omega out to meet with her mate, the lycaon, even if it means forcibly. If not now then later, he pondered to himself.
They spent the day, trying to catch up on each memory, Taehyung whining every time Jungkook stressed an embarrassing detail of him from his childhood
And as an act of counter revenge, he recalled those days Jungkook refused to wear pants and his weird likeness to roam butt-naked
They laughed, hugging, inhaling the warmth the other offered. Taehyung almost sprawled over Jungkook, sleeping on his chest, careful enough of his wounds that are now nearly healed.
Jungkook had his arms crossed over Taehyung, trying to have him impossibly close to his chest.
They delighted in each other's presence and didn’t remember falling asleep, suffocatingly entwined closer.
The sun was nearly set when Jungkook sensed someone other than they two, in the little space. He strained his neck, making Taehyung be alerted as well, as they looked around.
Only to spot a white puffball, its snout twitching as it made its way inside the trunk, sniffing all way.
Taehyung jumped on his seat in joy, “Cuddles!” his arms wide opened for the bunny to hop on. On hearing Tae, the rabbit stood on its hind legs then hopped straight to them.
But instead of reaching Tae, it hopped straight to Jungkook, flopping flat on his chest, nipping on his jaw as Jungkook petted him.
“Oh, it’s you white buffoon”
Taehyung’s jaw dropped, his hands falling down dejected at what happened.
Jungkook laughed, shaking his head, “I’m sorry your cuddles missed me more”, said mockingly with a smirk.
Taehyung quirked his eyebrows, demanding more, “He was the only company I had when I was alone here.. until I met you.
The only being who carried your scent and didn’t attack back when I advanced, unlike your pack members”
, he voiced out softly and turned sharply annoyed at the end.
Jungkook pouted, remembering the days when he just wanted to get a whip of Tae’s pheromones stuck on his pack members, his hyungs and kins.
But only to get attacked back. He might’ve killed some in defense to protect himself, but he did get hurt badly in return.
Taehyung’s face fell apologetic, sadly smiling at how the bunny grinded its teeth in contentment as Jungkook ruffled its white fur.
He giggled when Jungkook booped his nose with the rabbit, pushing his lips out in a silly way to entertain the little animal.
“How did he find us?”
Taehyung asked only to halt when a clamoured noise from outside was heard, followed by a few more steps.
Jungkook doe eyes hardened as he pulled Taehyung back in, only him stepping out to face them.
Okay! Let me just summarise yesterday's rogue update!!
After Jk was pulled away by the Lee pack and the manor to be 'burned', his memories strayed and he wasn't able to remember anything.
Next time he woke up he was in some whitish cave, that he dk where he is.
Jungkook, pushing Tae off him, stepped out to check who it is. He for sure knows it’s someone who is here to have him dead or take his Taehyung away.
But he is not ready to have another fight.
He wants to have a chance to explain, to be happy with his mate and have a forever until they can. But not to always run away from threats and to become the beast he is, without a choice.
Clenching his fists, he waits, trying to wrap his mind around how they even found him, or this deeper part of the woods.
Even he struggled for years to leave here, and only his mate’s warm pheromones helped to escape this madness of a maze.
And getting in before knowing a place like this exists is impossible for any outsiders.
His thoughts strayed when his eyes catch a pair of brown boots, clogged in mud stepping out of the bushes of leaves.
A pale man, wearing a black blazer, a pair of round glasses, and a bunch of papers in his right hand entered his vision.
Jungkook squinted his eyes on the familiar silhouette, lips falling agape on realization.
The only one who is capable to enter this hidden part of woods, the only best tracker he has ever seen or encountered all his life,
On hearing him, the man flipped the bunch of papers in a way to greet him. Jungkook soon feels Taehyung coming up behind, placing his chin over the other’s shoulder to look ahead.
Taehyung gasped on seeing Yoongi, followed by three to four warriors coming up behind him.
A white carriage with golden edges landed, as the warriors ran to open the door, standing straight awaiting someone to step out .
Taehyung’s hands curled in fists to grab the torn cloth Jungkook covered his wounds with.
His insides ran haywire when a red heel and a smooth slender leg made an appearance from the carriage.
Taehyung trembled behind Jungkook, hissing when a woman carrying equal dominance of an alpha stepped out.
Her blonde hair, slicked and raised to a high pony, wearing a dress slit opened to her knee and shawl draped in her back and held in elbows, stood elegantly assertive before them.
“Maa-“, Taehyung calls out in a wavering voice.
Jungkook remembers who she is, the Luna of Kim pack.
He clearly remembers the days she engulfed him in a warm hug every time they met, ruffling his hair in adoration, and how she treated him as one of hers.
But now her hardened look aimed at them scared him shitless. His hands involuntarily ran back to grip Taehyung’s hips to move him a little behind, safer.
But Taehyung was fast to push the alpha back, running front and possessively standing before the other.
Kim JunHee, walked aimed at them. Her steps are slow and sharp, with a little sway to her hips as she neared them.
She was not armed and carried no weapons with her. But Taehyung knows better about his mother.
He still has vivid memories of her killing a wild boar with bare hands.
So, he knows better, that inside her silk gloves, are her claws that are deadly enough to plunge into a heart. Besides the calming smile is her malice, cunning enough to lure her prey.
Taehyung raised a protective hand between them, “Ma, we need to talk first”
She stopped in her stance, tilting her head at him. Then with a mocking smirk, she slowed towards them.
Circling his hands over the other’s waist, Jungkook pressed Taehyung towards him as his mother stood right before them.
Jung hee eyes trailed all over Tae. Her heart lurched for every scar he had on him. He looked a mess, face gloomy in tiredness.
His hair silky and soft now looked like patches and disheveled. He’s covered in dirt, swiped all over his cheek.
She raised her hand to clean it off his face when she heard a low grumbling growl from the rogue alpha behind her son.
Jeon Jungkook. He looked exactly how he looked back then, years ago.
Her eyes traced over the hand, muscles rippling, tightening on her son’s waist pulling him back, away from her, to not to separate him off his mate.
She scoffed lowly, shaking her head, ‘these alphas and their weird obsessions with territory’
Taehyung poured his frustration out. “Mom, please. Listen to me. There’s more to what you heard. He’s not what you think.
There’s a reason, a fcking reason to everything that happened years ago. And I trust him, I trust him with my everything. So, please hear us out. We have a lot to comm-“
“I want to talk with you”
She raked at Taehyung, then whipped at Jungkook, “alone”
She wants to talk with Jungkook. Alone. Why? Why is she here? Why does she want to talk with kookie?
Junhee hummed in question. “No. No! No no not alone. Not alone with him. If you wanna talk then talk here, not alone. no”, he backed,
turning to hug Jungkook by his sides, hiding in his crook mumbling a number of no’s.
Junhee sighed eyeing Jungkook, who looked perplexed at the whole situation. He knows they need to talk, to make everything right.
Jungkook cleared his throat, tugging Taehyung away by his elbow.
“Taehyung, love, I’ll be back”
Tightening his hold on Jungkook, Taehyung panicked, at the verge of crying, “No. I’m coming with you. You aren’t going alone. No”
“I’m not gonna harm him. Stop acting like I am some monster”
“I don’t trust you”
Junhee exhaled, “I won’t. I promise. Trust your mother a little huh?”
Taehyung pouted as he looked at Jungkook,
nose scrunching and ready to cry at any given moment, “Be alert, okay? I’ll be right here, waiting for you”
Taehyung nodded as he said, loosening his hands on Jungkook yet reluctant to leave him by holding the hem of his shirt.
Jungkook had to once again tug Taehyung away, placing a lingering kiss on his forehead to calm him.
He might not know what is waiting for them, might not know if he can trust her or anyone, but he does trust his instincts.
So, he followed her cold back, already retreating to somewhere far.
Taehyung watched as Jungkook’s figure disappeared from his sight.
He shivered hugging himself, worry etching his face. He trusts his mom, she wouldn’t do anything irrational. But as per Jungkook, they don’t know the whole truth.
To them, Kookie is still a man turned a murderer, a beast overnight. To them, Kookie is still someone they fear for their whole lives.
They don’t know the truth, the reason, or why everything happened. And his mate is not safe until the truth comes out.
Deep in his thoughts, he didn’t notice a shadow coming behind him.
He gasped, startled at hearing a voice trying to clear his throat near his ear. Shutting his ears, he turned to glare at Yoongi.
“She won’t hurt him”
“I’m not trusting anyone here”
“Understandable. But you have to know, your mother is the reason he has been alive all this time”
“That’s not my story to tell. But trust your mother. She won’t do anything that might hurt you”
Yoongi muttered, adjusting his glasses near to his eyes.
Taehyung fuddled his thoughts, What does he mean? Mother saved Jungkook?
Jun hee sat on a log, legs crossed over as she raked before her. Jungkook stood a little foot apart, waiting for the woman to say something first.
His heart hammered inside him, sweats began to form in his neck, and his head, pulse raising as the thickness of silence followed.
“Don’t you have anything to say?”, Junhee began breaking the cold silence.
Jungkook shivered. There were so many thoughts swimming inside, yet no words formed before her. He didn’t know what to pick as a start to explain his doom days.
Sensing his further silence and nervousness, “Why you did what you did?”, she tried to give him hints to start in mockery and irritant.
Lapping his tongue on his lower lip for seconds, “I- I’m a Lycaon”, Jungkook started after many thoughts.
A scoff reverberated off Junhee, “We are here because you are one, Jungkook-ssi”
“My parents are alphas. Both of them are alphas. Yet I was born a lycaon. You know why?”
“I know I’m a fcking experiment of Lee’s..”, Jungkook took tentative steps towards her, “They killed my parents"
He looked at her cold face for any emotions but her's were dead froze as she questioned him further, “What?”
"The Lee’s. They killed my parents. My whole pack. My everything", Jungkook rasped.
Yet a single scoff from her crumpled him back to cower in nothing but pain. "Are you serious?"
“Lee Jaehyun said this himself. My father. He opposed this experiment. So he killed them.
I- I was late by mere minutes. I saw them with my eyes, bodies mutilated and blood covering the streets. My maa-”
“11 years Jungkook-ssi. You took 11 years only to come up with this bulsh¡t?”, Junhee stood up from the log and walked towards him.
"No, what do you mean? I’m not coming up with everything. It is the truth"
"No one is gonna believe it. Everyone will for sure think you are spewing nonsense after years"
Jungkook doesn’t have any proof, he didn’t even know half of what happened later that day, where will he go find proof and prove himself good?
“I don’t know how to..”
“That night my Joonie saw you with those lycaon green eyes. And he’s not the only one. Many witnessed you rushing out to your pack with those eyes. And the next thing,.. you are back in manor with Lee’s heart and many dead at your hands”
“You lycaons destructed half of us and what we had. People still fear for you and your green eyes.. Do you now think anyone would even believe what you are trying to say here?”
Jungkook felt his brain shutting down. His heart started to pound hard that he could hear it out loud. Every nerve ending electrified with distrust and shame, washing all over him.
How could anyone think he killed them? His pack? His family? His parents?
Jungkook trembled, as images once again flashed before his eyes. His heart troubled as he fell to his knees, covering his face.
He looked manic, shaking his head violently "I didn’t kill them. H-how will I even..?
My mother.. how would I do that to her? She was laying there in cold and lifeless-s. My pack, they are my everything. How would I k-kill them? How would I kill th-"
He started to weep hard as more tears slid down, voice croaking as he wheezed for breath clogging his throat. His face turned a hot mess with tears and snots running out. His body started to shake, feeling apathetic of himself.
Junhee crouched before him, hesitant hands etching to run over his back, calling for him to hush.
When Jungkook continued to tremble, she pulled him in a hug, spreading calm pheromones all over, laying her face side with Jungkook’s, as she softly patted his back.
She held him in her arms with no other words, soothing him silently until the tears and wheezing dried out.
“Prove them Jungkook-ah. Prove to everyone what you are and what they are. Everything must have a loophole. There must be something that can be used for the truth.
Use it against them and give the fcking heartless monsters what they deserve. Until then, do not hide or slack in some.. tree"
A new emotion rushed into him, filling him whole. A little hope healing his naked ripped heart. He stopped sniffing and looked up at her and her now loving warm eyes.
Does that mean..
“You believe me..?”
Junhee looked at him, eyes turning more soft on noticing his little hiccups in between his sniffs. She caressed his face off the tears, cupping his left reddened cheek in her hand.
“I believe in the goddess above and my sons, alone. And no I don’t trust you”, a little childish tone laced her voice.
Jungkook’s eyebrows furrowed in confusion, “How would I trust you when every time my son and pack encounter you, they return home wounded? You broke my Joonie’s ribs this time?!”
Jungkook’s eyes widened in a panic the next second, getting the last memory of plowing a punch on Namjoon’s ribs, making him wither in ground with his hurtful pride. His wolf howled at that, regretting every other decision he hastily took without any thought.
“I.. I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean to! He was trying to take away my mate and my wolf acted on instinct. We are so sorry!”
A loud chuckle halted him from his words. He looked at Taehyung’s mother, laughing with her head falling back.
Her blonde bangs, curled, falling over her face, as she covered her mouth with her slender fingers.
Jungkook stared at her, as she stopped laughing and they both shared a warm look.
She thumbed his ears, “You know? I and your mother grew together..?”
“Haa, yes. And I fucking loathed her”, Jungkook’s eyes went doe, his mouth turning oval at the news.
“Miran was everything I hoped to be. Strong. Beautiful. Brave. Alpha... Everyone adored her. And I turned out to be an omega. Even though born as an alpha, she was kind to everyone. She raised her voice when it was wrong and did what was right”
“I didn’t know then that what I feel for her is jealousy but not hate”
“And when I heard you are her son and the said mate of my little brat. That was everything I could ever wish for. You were kind, lovely,
innocently adorable,.. you were everything of her, like a male version of your mother. Just perfect Alpha, perfect for my Taehyung”
Jungkook giggled, cheeks turning a slight shade of pink, and when he looked back at Junhee, his eyes carried unshed tears.
“She was a good woman.. and a great mother to us”
“I know.. I’m sorry”
He shook his head, trying to think of anything other than her loving smile, haunting him later with her lifeless being in their home.
“I’m giving you a chance Jungkook-ah. A chance with my little love.
He is my everything too like he is yours. If he happens to be in any pain cause of you, I would not hesitate to have your head. So you better treat him like the prince he is to us”
Jungkook beamed like a bright star in the night sky, his face shining with newfound glory and determination.
“But before it, do what you have to do and bring the said down. Prove me you are still the perfect alpha for my son”
“Do not worry about Namjoon or his father. They need a little taming and understanding. That’s going to be toughhh.. because you alphas like to act idiotically. But you sure have to explain everything to him and his father to hold your mate's hand in peace, you hear me?”
“I don’t hear you”
Pinching his cheeks, she ushered him to get up. Jungkook stood fast, hopping in giddiness to return to his mate.
“You alpha, give a hand to this old lady here. My legs cramped by carrying half of your weight in my lap”
Taehyung, on getting a glimpse of Jungkook’s returning figure, sprinted towards him, pulling him in a tight hug.
When his eyes spotted his mother, he aimed a glare at her, sniffing on Jungkook for any discomfort.
“I didn’t do anything”, he heard his mother shout at him, and just like she said Jungkook had no hints of worries, rather he was filled with happiness and delights.
He pulled back to look at his eyes, checking if he was hiding anything. But only a goofy smile adorned his lips.
Jungkook pulled Taehyung's face merely away only to hold his jaw to give a chaste kiss on his lips with a loud smooching sound, making his mother groan and walk past them.
Slapping his shoulders to free him from the kiss,
“What happened? Are you okay?”
“Perfect than ever”
With a nod, Jungkook pulled Taehyung to another kiss, squeezing his face a little hard.
Hugging Jungkook in his sides, they walked to where his mother is standing near her carriage.
She looked at Jungkook and her son hugging together. A little concern still roofed in her heart. Is she doing the right thing? Is this how it was supposed to be?
But the thought of Taehyung convulsing in his bed, arching like possessed and agonizingly writhing in pain that night, made her think otherwise. If her son could live only by Jungkook’s side, she’s ready to risk it all.
Her eyes warmly raked at her son, though he is here before his mother, she watched the way his eyes still chased Jungkook, checking him from time to time, scenting him every minute.
“Your father misses you”
A quick desperation and guilt washed over him. It’s been days since he left home. He didn’t think of his family, his friends. He didn’t even know how everyone is.
Taehyung stared at the mud ground, aimlessly. He misses them badly more than he thought he was.
Gulping down the thick flagons of worry raising to his throat, “How is he?”, he asked in a soft voice, hardly hearable to anyone.
“Come and check him for yourself”
“What.. Why is that?”
“If I’m returning it will be only with my mate. I’m not coming back alone or when you all hate him for something he didn’t do. Accept him or forget me”
The look of his determination once again had her in amusement. Her lips twitched, she just wants to kiss her son and squish him in a hug and pat his back saying how proud she was of him.
Containing her enthusiasm, she cleared her throat,
“Then bring him with you..”
Junhee entered her pack grounds, Yoongi following her close behind.
“Are you sure not anyone followed us?”
“Yes, Luna. Those who did got stuck in northern docks and none followed us further”
A pleased smile played on her lips, “You are a good tracker, Yoongi. Keep it up”
Yoongi blushed at this, adjusting his perfect glasses once again, “Thank you, Luna. It’s a pleasure hearing from you”
With that Junhee walked fast, waving a hand for Yoongi to leave.
As soon as she disappeared inside the main grounds, where the Pack Alpha house is, something hit him hard in his head, making him groan and hiss in pain.
He turned around with infuriating rage, caressing his head
There stands Jimin clutching a frying pan in his hands, ready to hit him hard once again.
“What the hell Jiminie?”
“Where were you?”
“As I said, I was out with Luna for work”
“Stop lying! Did you meet Tae? How is he? Where is Jungkook? What did you do? What did you do to my Taehyung?!”, he was practically yelling questions at him, not even minding those who stop to look at the mates' commotion.
Yoongi nervously laughed at him, “What Tae? What do you mean? He’s there with his brother inside..”
Jimin fuming, raised the pan once again to hit.
Thanks to his quick reflex Yoongi caught in a flash, muttering a 'shut your pretty mouth up' and turned Jimin around, shutting his mouth with the other hand as he dragged him back to their house.
Junhee walked in, a little fidgety about how she’ll convince the two Alphas of her life. Anxiety roused her, with a bit of excitement and thrill.
She then spotted a group of few near the entrance, talking about something rather serious.
As she neared, she caught the Lee’s who were about to retreat, halt on seeing her.
Cursing under her breath, she eared them, meekly bowing before the Alpha Lee.
“Junhee-ssi, I thought we’ll miss your presence”
“Looks like you didn’t”
“And you look like returning from the woods”
“oh. Oh yes, I had some work”
“Work..? In woods? Okay.. and where is Taehyung? My son wanted to meet him, but he’s seems to be not here?”, the alpha said and raked around him, as if searching for Taehyung.
“Taehyung's out with his friends. You can meet him later Jaesung-ah”
With a sly smile, she bowed once again and tried to walk in, when the alpha voice resonated closer than before.
“Do not forget you are Lee i side this whole facade. You will forever be grateful to the pack where you were bought up”
She stopped, her chest heaving and her body paralyzed at every attempt as the steps began to fade away.
Junhee ran in the next moment, mind linking Yoongi and every warriors on her side to move towards the northern decks.
Her whole being feared, pondering in anxiety if Joon or his father may have uttered anything about the little mates in the woods to the horrendous Lees’
Ahn yes!!! Those who doubted that woman you all better ask for her forgiveness or I'm coming to each one of you
On seeing her storm inside, Alpha Kim signaled for every warrior to leave them alone.
Junhee was scared but her anger overstepped every emotion she felt as she stood before them, with chest heaving in distress.
Alpha kim, raised from his seat and walked forward to step before her.
Namjoon, who was silently standing behind his father, walked front, holding his hands before him. His jaw clenched and his hands were fisted but his face remained neutral as he looked at his mother, Junhee.
"Why were the Lee's here?"
Clearing his throat Alpha Kim replied, "Why? Cause they wanted to check up on Taehyung"
She wanted to hear more, but didn't want to give away anything from her mouth.
She took a step forward, urging her mate to speak more who remained silent with pinched brows.
Her legs began to tremble, not knowing if it was fear or anger.
"Taehyung is not here.."
"I'm aware of that", Alpha Kim's answers were mockingly sharp that made her rage edge more.
"Please tell me you didn't say anything about Tae being with his mate", her desperate pleading tone escaped which made a light emotion flicker in Alpha Kim's face.
The silence stretched and her eyes started to gloss in tears.
Taehyung is out there with any possibilities of liable danger and the two Alphas of her life are not helping it, made her pant on dizziness.
She was about to scream her frustration out when Namjoon stood forward.
"Do you know that Taehyung is out there with a lycaon, Mother?"
"Yes. And I do know that lycaon is none other than Taehyung's mate and is Jeon Jungkook"
"Did you meet them?", It was her mate now, who had his eyes pointed at her.
"Where are they? How did you meet them?"
She raised both her hands, "I'm not telling you anything-"
"Taehyung. Is out there. In the woods. With a lycaon who took hundreds of lives. And you are telling me you will not say where he is keeping him??!", Namjoons voice thundered in the main hall, as his face reddened in rage at his mother.
Junhee flinched, with her wide eyes. Namjoon's wolf was always known to be reckless and rough, when it came to his family.
Kim Seoyun whipped around, grabbing Namjoon's collar and pulling him closer to his face.
"I do not care if you are the alpha or the next head in line, if you did raise your voice against your mother, my mate, I will rip the title off you with no thoughts and leave you with your bones broken to count"
Seoyun's words were hushed with gritted teeth and Namjoon just lowered his head.
His jaw tensed but he muttered a low, 'Yes father' and Seoyun looked content.
He then turned to his mate, who just looked back at him with her widened eyes.
She gulped, not knowing what to do, but was sure to not disclose where the new mates were located.
On seeing her stubbornness, "Junhee, we need to know Taehyung's location. He is our family and my son. I just can't simply sit here and play the role of a dad without knowing where my son is. And just because he is with his mate, doesn't mean he is safe.."
Junhee blinked her eyes as she looked down. Her hands grasped her dress while contemplating what is the right thing to do.
"Junhee-ah, we can't trust the lycaons.. or anyone in this matter, so please where is Taehyung?"
"Trust? Then what about the Lee's! Why are they here again? And what did you say about Taehyung to them?"
"The Lee's. I was not here, it was Namjoon who talked with them. I was yet to ask, what did you tell them Namjoon-ah?"
Two heads turned to Namjoon who just sighed in irritation.
Junhee ran to him, grabbing his shoulders to face her. Her heart was pounding loud that everyone in the room could hear it.
"Wait, you didn't tell them right? You didn't tell them that the lycaon took Taehyung right? Answer me!"
The thing Junhee feared is, any best trackers would track the lycaon. Their pack had two, one being Yoongi and the other who died in combat.
But it cannot be the same with the Lee's. Since they are now one of the biggest packs with a huge number of wolves, they might have the bestest trackers with them.
And if they got to know Taehyung is with Jungkook, a lycaon, there's no possibility of them returning with empty hands.
Her eyes were remorseful, and filled with fear and aching as she eyed Namjoon in hope.
"Of course not. I'm not dumb", on seeing his father's pointed look, "the Lee's are obsessed with lycaons and they are capable of doing anything to capture him.
Even to use Taehyung as bait. I'm not going to let my brother hurt in any way, so I'm just waiting for him to be safe in our hands"
A big sigh of relief escaped Junhee, as she rubbed Namjoon's shoulder, then pulled him in a hug. Her small frame shook in tears as if saying she is thankful for what Joon did.
"So please maa, tell us where Taehyung is.. we cannot be sure that he is safe just because he is with his mate"
Combing Namjoon's disheveled hair, "He is with Jungkook..", her voice was soft as she pressed on 'Jungkook', wordlessly stressing on how much she trusts Jungkook.
"Yes the same Jungkook who killed hundreds and hundreds of wolves"
"Yeah.. and why do you think he did that?", She raised her brows in question for which she knew the answers.
Joon scowled at her, "Because he went mad?! Every wolves knows about it! He killed his own parents!! No one in their right mind would do that. To anyone in general!"
"Yes. And you have been with him for years, did he tend to do something like this before..? Like not being in the right mind?"
Joon looked at her, mind full of thoughts, "No.. You are refusing to accept what he did,
because he manipulated you now, as he did with Taehyung. Everyone knows what he did ten years back!"
"There's no witnesses! Everyone says but no one actually saw Kook butchering his people!" Junhee shouted.
And Namjoon's face morphed to a look of disbelief and bewilderment. His eyes reddened in frustration and impatience.
That dead of night when Jungkook handed him a sleeping Taehyung, with his eyes glowing monstrous green,
something stirred in Namjoon's gut. Maybe his wolf, but he didn't care. Until he heard screams hollering outside, paths covered, flooded with blood, and getting to know it's Jungkook's cause, his wolf's instinct surged out.
That hour, he bargained to himself, would never let a day come, where he'll let his family anywhere close to any lycaons.
And knowing one still exists, and is mated to his brother, edged Namjoon's wolf every second.
Soon Seoyun strode towards Junhee, hugging her sides, "There are witnesses. Those that saw him kill the Alpha Lee's son, are still breathing, love"
"Yes, but.." She fully turned to his mate, clutching his biceps, "People saw him killing the eldest Lee, but not his own pack. We were told by the Lee's and their Seconds about Kook turning mad.. and why shouldn't they be framing him for something they did?"
They remembered the middle of the same night hours when they received a crying raven from Lee pack indicating how a lycaon turned mad and was raging at them. And when they reached,
what welcomed them was a grotesque grave of dead wolves caused by these said lycaons. So, it was not that hard to pin it on them.
"What if it's all a lie.. what if the stories that they fed us are all lies and there's more to it!
"What if Jungkook was just avenging what they did to his pack, to his family.. no one turns to a full on madness over a night"
Her last words caught the Alphas attention. "What are you implying?"Alpha Kim's voice was more calm compared to how Joon fumed in rage.
"There's no implications! That lycaon is not someone you could easily trust. I do not care if he lives or dies. But I do not want my brother anywhere near him. I want Tae here in the pack, safely!"
Junhee sighed, as she faced her mate, ignoring Namjoon, "The Lee's are so maddened with this lycaon project, that they did anything to create a perfect one..
"You remember the day I went to my former pack to meet my sick father?
Later that night I was invited to a feast by Lee's house. And sometime in between the festival, I overheard Alpha Jeon talking to the Elder Lee. Jeon was refusing to send anymore of his pack omegas. That frustrated Lee Jaehyun to many levels.
He was throwing things and growling for the whole pack to hear. I was scared and my wolf became restless, so I left soon.
"And then a few days in, we heard the whole pack butchered.. I don't think it's a perfect coincidence.."
Kim and his mate shared a look as they drowned in thoughts. Namjoon raking at each, voices out his question.
"Is it true lycaons are experimented by the Lee's?"
Junhee eyes drooped in sadness, she nodded at him, eyes glossing in tears and guilt.
Taehyung and Jungkook were catching up with every little detail of their life when Luna of The kims' voice resonated in their links.
They are coming. Taehyung's family are coming to meet them.
It has been over a week since his mother came to this hidden part of woods, and now the thought of his father, especially his brother, Kim Namjoon being anywhere but close to Jungkook raised every anxeity Taehyung's been shutting off.
The two mates are now moving towards the northern decks to meet them.
They were informed that none aside from their close family knows anything about his mate or Jungkook being 'the' lycaon.
And much to Taehyung's dismay, they are already nearing the said place. Taehyung was reluctant to go and meet them. Even though they are his family, he is scared for his mate and his life.
His wolf has been howling all night and morning,
And now is eerily silent as they wait for the other's to reach.
Though Jungkook had his chest puffed and shoulder squared up, his stance was fidgety and Taehyung did everything to calm his anxious mate, spreading comforting pheromones all over.
There amidst green wilds, he could see silhouettes of wolves coming forward to them. His eyes caught his father and Namjoon, followed by his mother and a few more warriors.
The empty woods with nothing but dampened moss and smells of wet airy trunk, are now filled with different pheromones as close they reach.
Taehyung never let his guard down nor did Jungkook. They held each other, side by side as more figures came before them.
Taehyung was edgy, his claws ready to extend at any discomforts given. And when their surrounding hint with raged pheromones, Taehyung loudly hissed, letting his canines descend to show he's ready with whatever they bring.
Jungkook patted Taehyung's back, silencing him as their link is now filled with protective, comforting, and warm emotions 'from the pack', indicating that none came here with ill intentions.
Controlling his breathing, Taehyung looked over at them, who were now a few feet away, standing before the two.
His breath hollered, as his eyes took his father's feature. They held grays and emotions that were dying to hide away, that very much had Taehyung howl in sadness.
He then looked over Namjoon, who was purposely emitting bitter scents making him whine in distress.
Then raked over to the others, smiling when he catches a concerned Yoongi following his mate Jimin, carrying a basket as heavy as he is, and refusing to let Yoongi help him.
His attention then scurried to a bright face, who's been eyeing at him with adoration and protectiveness all along. His mother.
She was smiling, her lips and eyes holding a proud mirth, of how she is trying to make everything right.
Her eyes crinkled as she nodded her head once for Tae to come over to her. But Taehyung took steps back, hitting Jungkook's chest.
What if they took him away, away from Jungkook? But the look his father had, calmed all his raising waves, filling him with warmth and comfort.
He looked back at Jungkook, whose eyes were wide and innocent, giving off confused and edgy feelings.
Taehyung smiled, giving a peck to which Jungkook slightly pushed Taehyung away towards his family, wordlessly saying he trusts them with his mate.
Taehyung took tentative steps, waiting for any weird senses. And when his father's joined hands spread, ready to scoop him in a hug, he started to run.
He can hear Jimin call for him in the background 'Taehyung-ah!' But all that mattered was his father, calling him. He ran, his eyes watering in relief. He ran, chest squeezing in happiness.
And his father, held him by his sides and hugged him, scenting his cheeks and rubbing his hands on his lithe back.
There came so many happy scents that choked him with wonder. He circled his hands on his father's neck, and felt his legs leaving the ground for a second.
His father pulled away, cupping his cheeks. Taehyung's heart calmed as his father checked him wholly for any pain or discomforts. When he found none, a loud smooch was given in his hair.
"I missed my baby bear", there were tears in Seoyun's eyes that Taehyung wiped off with his trembling hands.
"I'm sorry that I left, pa"
Seoyun shook his head, cause he knew forcing a mate bond separation would end in worse. Junhee joined the adorable duo, kissing both his cheeks.
Taehyung felt so content, his heart feeling full at getting to see his parents. He feels a hand coming to rub his sides.
And when he finds its Namjoon, Taehyung hops onto him, snuggling in his neck, making Joon scent him all over. He can feel his wolf, edging a little out, purring mildly.
One of the moments where he could feel and brace himself knowing he does have a wolf in him.
"Tae, you are safe"
Namjoon's voice sounded stranded and void that is now filled with comfort and relief. Tae nodded his head, taking in Joon's honeycomb pheromones as much as he could,
"I am safe"
He wants to add, 𝑐𝑎𝑢𝑠𝑒 𝐼'𝑚 𝑤𝑖𝑡𝘩 𝐽𝑢𝑛𝑔𝑘𝑜𝑜𝑘, 𝑚𝑦 𝑚𝑎𝑡𝑒
Pulling himself away he watches Joon, doing the same as his face turns serious. He can feel the once happy pheromones now lacing with distress and anger.
And a light nervousness. From Jungkook.
There away from everyone, stands Jungkook, his adorable mate, skipping from one foot to another, in uncomfortableness. Jungkook is uncomfortable. And is scared.
A sudden craving to be with him and comfort him rushes in Taehyung. He darts his eyes at his father, who returned his gaze with his hardened ones.
For a second his heart stops. No. He pleads in his eyes, and soon sees them turning soft and his head bobbing a little.
His mother does the same. Sighing, and smiling back, he turned around to run to Jungkook to bring him to his pack.
But the hand on his waist said otherwise clutching him hard, not letting him take another step.
He turned to look at Joon, his once sweet pheromones now turning sour and bitter. His eyes glowed red, mirroring Jungkook's who is now at the edge of turning green.
Jungkook snarled, controlling with his everything to not let the lycaon wolf out.
And Taehyung did know, once his eyes shift to verdent greens, this meeting would end in no sense.
His heart pained, as Taehyung howled at his brother. He was promised to give Jungkook a chance to prove, but why is he doing the opposite.
Taehyung struggled to leave Joon's grip, who in return held him hard and close.
His scent turned sour, pained whines leaving, his claws were out, scratching and plunging in Joon's hands to leave him.
His eyes find his pack members, who were all glaring at Joon and some at Jungkook. But none brave enough to step forward.
And the moment Taehyung whined at his mate, a loud growl ripped out of Jungkook, which was soon followed by Joon's challenging one.
𝑁𝑜 𝑛𝑜 𝑛𝑜 𝑡𝘩𝑖𝑠 𝑠𝘩𝑜𝑢𝑙𝑑𝑛'𝑡 𝑏𝑒 𝘩𝑎𝑝𝑝𝑒𝑛𝑖𝑛𝑔..
This will ruin everything. If Jungkook let his wolf out, they will never trust him anymore. He turned back around, whimpering at Joon.
Joon had many hands on him, many growls at his ears wanting him to stop this madness, which made him challenge the lycaon more. But one pleading word from Taehyung, put him off.
His hold loosened, and before he could process what he did, Taehyung is running away. To the lycaon, who did the same. Meeting him half way carrying him off his feet. Scenting each other wildly.
Taehyung could feel the anger wash away, as soon as he peppered him with kisses.
He placed smooches all over his face, rubbing his sides, his cheeks and neck, cupping his jaw and pecking his lips a few more times.
And he felt everything turn neutral, he turned around to glare at his brother who had a guilted expression on him.
And when Jungkook pulled him closer away from them to leave, Namjoon growled loudly once again, which made Jungkook return the same with ferality,
making his father, the Alpha growl at both and soon followed by his family members, including Jimin's angry mewl.
𝑂𝘩 𝑔𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑡, Taehyung thought
Let's talk about Namjoon here!
Yes Namjoon had a very good friendship with Jungkook. But as you all already know, werewolves are pretty defensive when it comes to their family or pack. Jungkook is a friend but not as close as
Namjoon, a soon to be pack Alpha, is with his pack mates (cuz they do share strong bonds within their packs)
And yes he didn't know he was a lycaon that time. Though they have heard about it, none knew that Jungkook is actually one.
So when he did see Jungkook's green eyes that night as he handed a sleepy Taehyung, he felt eerily disturbed.
So seeing him kill his pack mates, his people, his friends, his brothers, Namjoon WAS scared.
And as I said he bargained. This bargain here has more meaning to it than what the dictionary tells us. I have read so many fantasical books. So I had to say if one bargains that imprints their soul and life.
Namjoon bargained with his life that he would never let any of his people be near Jungkook or any lycaons or any threat.
So even if he wanted to think otherwise, he got pretty defensive that the first thing he would recall is Jungkook going feral over their wolves.
And to him Jungkook is a lycaon. A lycaon they only heard in mythical histories. Not a simple werewolf like them. So he IS different from others, as in /scary/ difference
So leave my baby he just needs some tinkering done by me..
Tho I'm not happy with today's update, I have to stop here
Please interact with the tweets, it doesn't cost
Jungkook didn't really remember how the day went. After the little chaos of the brother and mate fighting for Taehyung outside, they soon got into the cavern where Jungkook lived.
They being, his parents and his brother, as the others stood out, giving the little privacy they needed, which didn't seem right to Jungkook.
He is ready to make an announcement of what the Lee's did to him and his pack. But he had to be silent until he had more proof to state his claim.
When the three faces looked at him to explain, Jungkook didn't know where to start his words.
Though he had been practicing for the whole night, it seems the words were now being robbed.
But when Taehyung came closer, crawling up his lap and nuzzling his neck, an act to encourage him, he did speak.
The Alpha Kim Seoyun, was concerned and softly listened to his rambles.
He asked him a few questions of how and why that night happened and why did every lycaons join hands.
Somehow it made sense, how every lycaons turned mad all at once, which made them believe his words.
The last question the Alpha Kim asked was rhetorical which Jungkook had no answers for.
'Then where were you all these years?'
To which Luna replied of how, after that night Taehyung fell sick and how after weeks of recovering Jungkook, Taehyung recovered too. They were really fated mates from birth, Jungkook beamed at Taehyung.
Namjoon was the hardest to please, he had so many questions, confusing Jungkook even more.
The converse between them were filled with growls and snarls that had everyone in the room at edge.
When Namjoon concluded with how he won't trust him with Taehyung's safety until he gets to believe Jungkook is not a threat to anyone, Alpha Seoyun came up with surrounding the said cavern with his trusted wolves as guards.
So now here they are surrounded by 12 warriors. Four near the cavern and others separated beyond.
They have now come to a deal, where Taehyung is allowed to stay with Jungkook but he has to visit the pack at least two days once even if it is for a few hours.
Though Taehyung wants to fight, he knows he has to.
And when he realized he can't bring Jungkook along to his pack, to show him around the little places where he danced and played with others, his heart ached.
But the time will come, he knew, and everything will turn happy in the end. Right?
'What are 'vargulfs?'
'𝐼 𝑑𝑜𝑛'𝑡 𝑘𝑛𝑜𝑤, 𝑙𝑒𝑡 𝑚𝑒 𝑎𝑠𝑘 𝐻𝑦𝑢𝑛𝑔'
The link turned to silence, as Taehyung stepped out of the nursery to meet Namjoon. He is back in his pack today, as per his family wanted.
Whenever Tae visits his pack lands, Jungkook would roam around the Lee manor for any kind of inklings on how they abused their powers.
Taehyung had given him the tinged sheet of paper with his name and other details in scribbled words. He had told him how he had grabbed it from the office.
So Jungkook had been searching for days everywhere, but got nowhere close to what he's trying to search for.
The office is neat compared to how Taehyung described it. The books are all arranged in their racks, no more messed up floor or dust covered tables.
Everything has been orderly placed, as if they had been sure someone like Jungkook would come and search there.
His link opened again, and the fragrance of vanillas spreaded through his veins, as Taehyung called for him.
'𝐻𝑦𝑢𝑛𝑔 𝑠𝑎𝑦𝑠, 𝑉𝑎𝑟𝑔𝑢𝑙𝑓𝑠 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑤𝑜𝑙𝑓'𝑠 𝑡𝘩𝑎𝑡 𝑔𝑜𝑛𝑒 𝑟𝑜𝑔𝑢𝑒'
'𝑊𝘩𝑎𝑡 𝑖𝑠 𝑖𝑡, 𝐾𝑜𝑜𝑘? 𝑌𝑜𝑢 𝑓𝑜𝑢𝑛𝑑 𝑠𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑡𝘩𝑖𝑛𝑔?'
"I just found this bundle called, 'Archive of Lycanthropy'
The pages are filled in unknown writings, but some are marked up and translated. One that reads, 'Taints wilt bring forth Vargulfs. Leading to possess madness and eventual demise'"
"Um.. Tae..?" Jungkook called when Tae remained silent at his words.
He chuckled at his adorable mate, shaking his head, "Oh, I'm not sure but maybe they are talking about
how when something goes wrong, they become rogues and will die by going mad..?"
'𝑂𝘩, 𝑡𝘩𝑎𝑡'𝑠 𝑠𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑦'
"Yea, maybe I should come back tomorrow to check more.. When are you returning?"
'𝑀𝑖𝑔𝘩𝑡 𝑡𝑎𝑘𝑒 𝑎𝑛𝑜𝑡𝘩𝑒𝑟 𝘩𝑜𝑢𝑟. 𝑀𝑜𝑡𝘩𝑒𝑟 𝑐𝑎𝑛'𝑡 𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑙𝑙 𝑎𝑓𝑡𝑒𝑟 𝘩𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝘩𝑒 𝑛𝑒𝑤𝑠'
'Haha, tell Jin I wished him well'
Taehyung shut his link, making Jungkook do the same.
In early dawn, Taehyung was called, as Jin had gotten pregnant. The family is overjoyed that they are thriwing a little feast to the pack.
Jungkook sighed, mind blanking at how another day has gone wasted with nothing useful.
Jungkook had requested Namjoon, if only he could get inside the Lee pack, he would for sure get his hands on their dirty deeds.
But Joon had asked him to remain hidden till the oncoming new moon, which will mark the First Luperas of the year.
The Lee's would come visiting the Kim's, so maybe Jungkook can visit the lone pack when none are there.
Hissing in irritation Jungkook decided to leave for good, when his eyes caught the drawer which he had been trying to open for days. Maybe it's time to break it up.
His eyes caught a paper pin, 'let's see if paper pins work', mumbling and nibbling on his lips, Jungkook fiddled it on the keyhole for a few seconds. And pulled the draw open.
Yet again, Tae joined in his link,
'𝐷𝑜𝘩𝑦𝑢𝑛 𝑖𝑠 𝑡𝘩𝑟𝑜𝑤𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑎 𝑝𝑎𝑟𝑡𝑦. 𝐶𝑎𝑛 𝐼 𝑔𝑜?'
'Who the fuck is Dohyun?'
There was nothing interesting there. Again papers and documents.
Jungkook checked on the papers with bored expression, when the wood of the drawer beneath the papers wobbled a little, making him halt his actions.
'Kookie', Tae whined, 'Today is his birthday! I promise I won't drink!'
'Maybe a little..? Kookie please'
Taking everything out, Jungkook pressured the one end down, which made a slate pop up.
There beneath the slate was again some papers and a Lee symbolized scepter.
"What do we have heree?",
Jungkook voiced out, letting Tae hear him too. Tae sighed, 'Are you still in the manor? What did you find? Does it look like something important?'
"Something which looks like something. But nothing"
Jungkook took the papers, grunting at the weird letters which seemed like some unknown scribblings to him.
'Okay. Leave soon. Don't be there till late night, someone will visit the manor for round checks'
'Wait. When will you be back?!'
'Before night fall. Bye'
Night fall? That's too late. But before he could call him again, Taehyung left the link.
Jungkook pouted at the thought of returning home and not finding Tae.
Continuing to look at the bunch of papers that were newly written and punctured together in a bundle, Jungkook decided to spend another hour.
The papers looked somewhat important but again it's in a different language - if one would call that a language - so it seemed to be not so useful.
Maybe he should link Yoongi. He called him, but instead got two voices in his head.
'Yes Kook-ah?' 'Jungkookie~~'
Ah. The mate bonds.
'Hyung, I'm in the manor'
'Again?' 'Anything interesting?'
Jungkook heard two of them reply together again, nodding with his skeptical eyes, he looked down at the table.
"Interesting? Yes. Useful? No."
'What do you mean?' Jimin's high-pitched voice caught him.
"There's these papers with different writings. I don't know if it's useful or not but they are securely placed in a hidden cabinet. I feel like they are important. But Hyung,.. how to read them?"
'Learn the language. Bye'
'Don't be mean to him', The mates started to bicker, making Yoongi groan.
'I don't even know what he's trying to do in the manor. I'm sure no one will find any proofs, considering them treating lycaons or such-"
Jungkook leaned over the papers to check it. The letters looked ancient, somewhat archaic. His eyes hurt and blurred as he checked the pages.
"-Like, okay they were testing women and their babies to become lycaons or whatever.
But we can't pin it on them as wrong. Every pack accepted it. There's nothing wrong with them. Even if it is wrong technically-"
Jungkook's head ached, making him dizzy as the letters began to jumble, dancing and flying a bit over the pages.
He painfully watched, the unknown drawings rearranging making it readable for Jungkook.
"They massacred a whole pack? Okay. That's wrong. But how will we find it? You actually think they keep data on how many people they kill day by day"
'There's nothing wrong with trying! Why are you demotivating him!'
"The only way to know is by forcing them to speak which would definitely cause ruckus and end up in a battle"
"Stop Jinxing everything. God I wish your mouth worked this fast on me and not on fighting"
"Hyungs?" Jungkook asked a little louder, stopping Yoongi and Jimin in their mid rambles.
"It says 'Pēr-mon-tous: unus'"
"The paper. It was written in that paper" "You said it's in a different language.."
"Maybe bad handwriting", Jimin twitched, making Yoongi hum.
Jungkook groaned as his head started to pound hard, his eyesight blurring.
"What, what? What is it? Are you hurting somewhere?", Yoongi asked Jungkook who continued to groan in the link.
"Hyung this. I think it means-"
But looking back down, the letters were back to the scrambled it was before.
"It meant what?"
"It means- I..I- I don't know.."
And suddenly Jungkook felt like he forgot how to even pronounce what he said before.
There was a jab in his heart, someone poking from the inside, which made Jungkook shut his lips yet again. Weird.
"You don't know?" "Of course you won't know. Lee's are bad at writing"
"But, he says it's locked in a hidden cabin", Jimin whispered, as if someone would hear him talking.
"Okay. Next time you go, ping me up. I'll come, or maybe I will ask Luna or Joon to come along"
Soon, Jungkook got out of their links and settled everything in the right places. When he was about to sneak out through the window sill, the footsteps of many were heard.
Jungkook quickly walked past the sill, threw a leg over the railings, and leaned down to check for anyone.
but found guard wolves, marching and surrounding the whole manor. Jungkook's heart raced, skin crawled with what was happening.
They weren't supposed to be here. No one was supposed to be here. He was told that Lee Manor was particularly shut down after that ruin.
He turned around, entering back into the officium, checking for anywhere to hide.
He could sense many pheromones edging towards him, some are stronger marking it as Alphas.
The footsteps stopped before the door of the office, and silence followed for a few seconds. Before heavy steps were heard. As if they are all waiting for someone to enter first.
And the door knob rattled, and they entered.
// I forgot to add. The Lee scepter looks like this. There were so many good pictures. But I wanted something that looks old and aesthetic
I've been feeling so insecure about my writing for a few days. like I can feel the way I write has gone wayyyy down. I don't know if this makes me want to write anymore,.. but here again I just wrote something. So yea,.. just wanna say
Pacing around the entrance of their cavern, Jungkook waited for Taehyung to return.
After the coverted encounter with the Lees, Jungkook had been itching to find what happened inside the stone walls.
He had been waiting to share it with his mate, but the latter is no where in sight.
Taehyung said he would be late. But not late late. The moon is already up and the woods have turned darker.
His wolf whined inside to just run to the pack and check on his mate. But the supposed guards Joon ordered were not allowing him any further than the little crossing line.
His heart rattled anxiously, his walk turned hasty as he paced back and forth.
A little rustle and low whines were heard, making him whip fast in that direction. And there comes Taehyung, leaning on some Beta.
Controlling his angry growl on noticing the latter's hand circled over his mate's back, he strode over to them, snatching his Omega to his arms.
Soft giggles erupted from Tae as he nuzzled his face in Jungkook's chest,
not knowing the rugged glares the said Alpha is shooting over to the poor Beta, making him run away the second.
Jungkook peaced out when no stinky scents of the beta or any others, in general, covered him. He looked down and frowned at finding a smiling Tae.
Pushing his face up by gripping his cheeks, he gazed at his Omega, who on finding his eyes gasped dramatically.
"It's you.." Taehyung's voice was hushed as if seeing Jungkook here was unfeasible.
"Tae, Are you okay?"
The previous look of shock went as now pink blushes adorned his cheeks, he fluttered his eyelashes and looked down.
"I missed you.."
Jungkook let his eyes drop to Taehyung's lip caught between his teeth. His own cheeks mirrored the blush as his mouth shut closed.
"You misshed me too?"
His gaze didn't falter, but watched the lips move as they questioned him, with a little pout. Jungkook still looked tranced, quietly enjoying the way his mate looks right now. Eatable.
Soon a pair of long hands grabbed his cheeks, squishing him, making his own lips to pucker out.
"Ywou didn mish mwe?"
Fuck. He's so cute. If Jungkook would stop restraining himself, he would take Taehyung right now. But that's when he gets the slight whiff of liquor from him.
As if thinking to himself with his eyes rolling up, Tae looked back at Jungkook with a small 'yesz'
Jungkook groaned, grabbing Tae by his waist, who was soon to jump and circle his legs onto Jungkook's hip.
Balancing the two globes of ass in his hands, Jungkook grunted, "I told you not to drink"
"No. I dint!"
"You are drunk"
A sly smile played in Tae's lips, as he leaned close to his ears, grabbing onto his neck, whispering, "Yes.. but drunk in loveee"
"Oh god. How much did you drink?"
"I didn't… maybe.. seven, six??"
As Taehyung continued to count on his fingers, as the latter carried him over to their cavern.
Sipping on a straw to finish the glass of water Jungkook gave him, Tae watched his Alpha massaging his feet, so soft and caring.
He can still feel his tipsiness from the alcohol he took before, but he can feel getting sombre enough to admire his mate.
It feels surreal, how Jungkook's touch, his voice as he hums a tune or the way his presence just beside him, makes Taehyung feel like they are carefully knitted by bones to be together.
He suddenly feels the need to utter those words, as if he can't bear to have them worn in his lips anymore. Abruptly sitting up and pulling his legs away, Taehyung calls him,
And a hum was answered.
"Jeon Jungkook", he calls again.
Hearing his full name, Jungkook raised his eyes at Taehyung. His eyes held emotions. And Jungkook felt his, turn gloss.
He felt special under Taehyung's gaze. Like they belonged to each other, even before they met and for the forever to come.
He felt himself fade away at how Taehyung looked at him, but at the same time, giving a new reason to his everything.
Taehyung strutted closer, taking in Jungkook's hands, his eyes never leaving him. Jungkook knew what was happening, and his lips widened to a wobbly smile.
"I love you.."
Jungkook's heart thumbed to a stop for a second or two and started to beat at full force. His eyes widened, senses rushing to his hearing as he focused on his mate. Then soon followed a pout.
"I wanted to say it first.."
Jungkook had many moments to say it, but he chose the latter, thoughts drowning on what if it's too soon.
Taehyung chuckled softly at that, grazing his cheeks, "You did.. maybe not in words but your actions said loud"
he sounded more sober than before, not thinking much as he credited the glass of water he sipped right before, or his werewolf abilities.
Jungkook felt his breath knocked out. He never knew how strong his feelings were for Taehyung.
Maybe he did but he never got to grasp the intensity. Cause everytime he has Taehyung before him looking at him as if he meant wholly to the latter, Jungkook feels everything in him crumbling, undoing his rough knots, and laying him bare for Taehyung.
The cravings to protect and cherish always mattered the most, even if he's forgetting himself over the thoughts.
And the thought of having Taehyung with him today, tomorrow, and the day after, as his mate by his side, made his heart pound in absolute bliss.
He fucking loves Taehyung. So damn much. "I love you too, Taehyungie", the words came rushing, as Taehyung skipped near, pulling on his nape to press their foreheads together.
They were smiling, panting in gushed turns as tears wetted their eyes. Jungkook felt too much emotion as Taehyung looked down at him, his fingers softly threading his nape hairs.
"Will you.. scent mark me?"
The question flows with no thoughts.
Taehyung freezes momentarily, as something rouses in the pit of his stomach. And before Jungkook could plead further, Taehyung is diving to his neck, feverently rubbing his cheeks and nose on the curve.
Grunting, Jungkook holds on Taehyung by his waist, nosing a line on the other side of Tae's neck, noting how the latter is squirming in pleasure as wild currents pass over them.
The entire cavern is now turning hot, filled with sweet lavender and musked honey combs.
Taehyung lets out a yelp when Jungkook grabs his waist, pulling him over his lap, continuing to assault his neck.
A hand skims through Tae's shirt, making him whine in need, moaning at how hot the touch feels over his bare skin.
Jungkook runs his nose behind Tae's ear, nibbling on the lobe as his hand slides over the bare skin of his hips to his chest, then back to his waist.
Shuddering to his every touch, Taehyung is unable to keep up how hot the situation had turned,
moaning loudly, squirming everytime the latter's hand neared his chest, close to where he wanted them to but barely touching.
A strong wave of desire fills Jungkook's, making his muscles tighten in his shorts when Tae starts to grind on his knees.
Scenting each other was common between them but marking Taehyung with his scent as he does to him, drenching each other with their own,
made Jungkook grunt, biting down on the base of the latter's throat and sucking red hues on the soft tanned skin.
The air turned thicker and heavier with their scents, soiling each other as their pheromones mingled together, without a hint of where one's started or ended.
Taehyung's eyes were hooded, undeniably, with lust and want. He felt dizzy, everything feeling too heavy to handle, as Jungkook brought him closer by the hold he had on his waist.
They leaned closer, gasps and grunts slipping around, as Jungkook moved Tae's hips over his length, slowly making the Omega subtly grind on him. Their lips meet again, soft kisses turning heavy,
silently spreading their pheromones on each other, wordlessly claiming what's meant to be theirs.
'Mhmm..' He whimpered, making the last of self restraint, crumble before Jungkook. His eyes turned hard, gripping on Tae's waist, sucking on his tongue, drowning Tae's little whimpers down by kisses.
Taehyung was aroused, his pants getting drenched with the amount of slick dripped, heated and wet. A hand gripped on his locks, pulling him a slight away, tugging at his lower lip,
and Tae felt his heart leap with how hard Jungkook's eyes had molten to darkness, watching him bit his lip, tugging it away.
His breath faltered, dodging when Jungkook pulled him in for another kiss, twisting away, trying to breathe around Jungkook's scent. But it seemed impossible with how fast Jungkook latched his teeth on his neck, growling, shuddering, wanting more of Taehyung.
His hands skimmed right in Tae's shirt, pulling him closer and closer, their erected cock brushing, cruelly, as Jungkook went rougher and rougher.
"Oh Tae", his voice sounded rough, trying to control his growl, letting his one hand ride up into his shirt, all over his chest, coming out of his neck hole, to grip on his neck. Jungkook let his teeth searingly mark over the other's jaw, pulling him in closer,
before finding his lips again.
The kiss this time, turned sloppy, tongues messily tangling, as Tae moaned and moaned, feeling himself getting close on how the hand on his neck, held firm and firmer.
He squirmed, gasping for air, before Jungkook tugged at his neck, squeezing it, the other hand pushing Taehyung more to himself, pressing a line of bruised kisses, down his throat.
He let a whine, desperate and needy, shivering when the hold on his neck loosened, making him gulp thick air, grinding more into each other. Tae's hip moved fast, the hand that left his neck hole, now brushing on his nipple,tugging at it, cruelly.
Oh fuck. Taehyung's body went haywire, feeling out of space, as he was thrown to the bed in a swift. He tried clearing his lines, trying to watch his mate over blurred visions, looking down at him, like a predator.
He parted his legs, wider when Jungkook climbed on, 'Good.. so good', hearing words spill out of Jungkook's lushed lips, wanting to hear more of it.
Their lips meet again, Jungkook's hands curling over Taehyung's shirt, tugging it over his head, throwing them away, before reaching for his drenched shorts.
Taehyung felt the time slow down, Jungkook stopping a second, looking at him, his eyes now more clearer, waiting for his consent.
He nods his head, feverently, feeling feverish but desperate, gripping on Jungkook's shoulder as their lips meet again, now soft and warm, as he felt Jungkook taking off his shirt, falling naked over him.
(I'm cutting it short, cuz the lack of interaction is eating at my mind )
Taehyung wakes up with a sharp pain in his insides, a pain that one would point at as someone tearing his insides in half. He jumps up in bed, gasping for air, when he finds himself in Jungkook's cavern, a thick fur covering his naked self, alone.
Turning his head over all sides, Taehyung visibly searches for his mate. Getting off, covering himself with Jungkook's shirt discarded in the ground, he follows the lingering scent of his mate.
It was still a night fall, the guard wolves his brother placed, no longer guarding. Taehyung lowers his head in embarrassment, cheeks flushing pink, thinking they might have heard them hours before, which should've had them leave wanting to give them the privacy needed.
He spots the wide back of Jungkook, muscles ripping in moonlight, seated at their place, near the northern lake.
With a grunt Taehyung places himself beside the Alpha, the pain no longer lingering, but the feeling of his stretched walls had him hiss at every movement.
Jungkook's scoff had him pass another grunt, hitting his shoulder, and that's when he noticed a pair of greens looking back at him instead of ravens as Jungkook.
Taehyung lets his eyes wander, melting away at how soft they look right now, the moss waves merging with the inner charcoal, molding together to give perfect shade of green and black, as they stare back at him.
The wolf looked different with his hair falling loose over his face, his looks of confusion and the occasional gulping at Taehyung's unwavering eyes aimed at him, added more cuteness than needed.
But Taehyung couldn't avoid the sadness covering all over them, dripping in his heart, making him want to howl at the moon to take all his mate's pain away.
He cups his hand over Jungkook's face, caressing it, softly, as he asks the lycaon, "What is it..?"
With another gulp, the lycaon strips away from Taehyung's hold, a tear lining out.
"What is it, Alpha?"
That seems to get the wolf's attention back on Taehyung's face. But, instead of what the omega expected, the wolf face twisted more in ache,
his lips wobbling and his chest heaving at the latter.
"No.. no-o.. what happened?"
Taehyung leaned on, his hands circling over Jungkook's neck, pulling him in a hug, tighter, wanting to take all of his pain away.
"I'm s-sorry.." And Taehyung doesn't need any other words, he holds him tight, assuring him as he himself sniffs on his spilling tears, "You did nothing wrong.."
No matter how many times the wolf repeated his words, Taehyung assured him each time, that no matter what happened, nothing is, never, his fault.
"Can you feel him-m..?"
He sounded like a pup, stranded and alone, wanting comfort and desolation. And Taehyung asked the question to himself.
Does he feel his wolf? Is the wolf, that was merged with him as one since birth, is now there for his Alpha?
Taehyung feels him. It's light presence scorching out, like the first light hitting the earth to give a new shine each day, Taehyung could feel his wolf's presence. Mildly, barely, on a second thought, one would deny it.
But Taehyung could feel him, and he could also feel the pain he's been holding in.
He didn't have to answer, as the Alpha hugs him tighter now, sobbing at his chest, mumbling a series of apologies, trying to reach his wolf mate.
And Taehyung feels the restraint his omega built breaking down. Maybe he needed the excruciating pain of his Alpha to reach out. Taehyung feels like choking on thick air. The wave of emotions rush in, rabbling through an opened door.
With a choked groan, Taehyung loses control of something in him, a feeling he had been missing all his days, as his wolf takes control for the first time.
There was a clear shift in the air. The alpha stiffened, but the hold on his mate perched practically in his lap,
not faltering or his head raised to look over Taehyung.
That night, for the first time, Taehyung felt being 'complete' as a whole again. He felt those parts, he never knew were covered with empty grayness, now fill with formless love.
Jungkook could feel the stillness of his soul morphing to a warmth as he bonds with his mate again, after years. He kissed those cold, calm azure eyes, rippling down his spine, unable to contain his happiness, molding him into his embrace.
He let the days he spent in silence as a blind man, slip away as he took Taehyung on the wild ground, marking him as his, claiming him over and over.
"You remember what I told you?" Taehyung asks Jungkook as they walk towards Namjoon's training camp.
"Blend in, not to do anything that catches attention and to find Hobi hyung", Jungkook recites as if he had been repeating it many times.
"That's right. And do not go anywhere alone today" Taehyung tells him in a firm tone. Today's the first lunar eclipse of the year, meaning they celebrate Luperas, Taehyung had to leave with the other members.
Leaving Jungkook alone didn't seem right to him as he came up with this idea to make him stay with Hobi until they returned, as the latter had some work making him stay within the pack too.
"Okay, I'll be back before the sun comes up. Will you be safe till then?", Taehyung asks as he stops in the middle, turning around to cup Jungkook's face.
Jungkook nods, muttering, "Link me at any discomforts?"
When Tae hums a yes, Jungkook smiles at his lips, pulling Tae by his waist as they share a kiss. Taehyung leaves soon, letting Jungkook move towards the Training camp all by himself.
He spots Hobi waiting for him at a corner, wary of his surroundings, maybe afraid someone would pick on Jungkook's scent, even though the latter had covered it.
"Hobi hyung!" Jungkook shouts making Hobi hiss at him to not be loud.
There weren't many people, as everyone moved out to celebrate this night, still Hobi looked scared of everything.
He drags Jungkook to a camp that's meant for Namjoon's personal use, "I have so much work pending, Kook. I want you to not disturb me and entertain yourself with anything here. Just.. don't disturb me and let me do my work", and starts mapping out in a paper.
And as said Jungkook entertains himself with books, reading them or looking at the pictures, and working out with some weapons and drawing until his eyes skims over a scroll dusted and covered in webs.
It seemed no one had touched it since ages, making him curious. Opening it, waving the dust off, Jungkook finds the letters ancient to him, as usual. If it is in another language, then why do they have it here?
"Hobi hyung? Can you read them?" He asks in curiosity, making Hobi turn around to look at what he's having in his hand. With a scoff, Hobi shakes his head.
"That's Namjoon's. Man thought it would have some combat secrets, so he's saving it up for anyone who can read it to him"
Jungkook hums, looking over at the scroll, when his wolf speaks up.
'𝐶𝑜𝑚𝑏𝑎𝑡 𝑠𝑒𝑐𝑟𝑒𝑡𝑠, 𝑝𝑓𝑓𝑡- 𝑇𝘩𝑜𝑠𝑒 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑐𝑢𝑝𝑐𝑎𝑘𝑒 𝑟𝑒𝑐𝑖𝑝𝑒𝑠'
"What?" Jungkook asks and Hobi turns around
With tilted brows. Waving his hands for Hobi to continue his work, he questions his wolf again.
'𝑇𝘩𝑜𝑠𝑒 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑎𝑛𝑦 𝑤𝑎𝑟 𝑠𝑒𝑐𝑟𝑒𝑡𝑠. 𝐼𝑡 𝘩𝑎𝑠 𝑠𝑜𝑚𝑒 𝑐𝑜𝑜𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑟𝑒𝑐𝑖𝑝𝑒𝑠. 𝐷𝑜𝑛'𝑡 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑘𝑛𝑜𝑤 𝘩𝑜𝑤 𝑡𝑜 𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑑 𝑡𝘩𝑒𝑚?'
His wolf asks back, confusing Jungkook even more. He denies his wolf, as he doesn't remember how to read them.
'𝐹𝑎𝑡𝘩𝑒𝑟 𝑡𝑎𝑢𝑔𝘩𝑡 𝑢𝑠'
He could hear his wolf speak to him, leaving him drowned with all the memories.
He could see the distorted images of his father teaching him and to some little ones of their pack, but Jungkook couldn't decipher the actual words or how to even pronounce them.
Sighing he drops the scroll back in its place, trying to run his mind anywhere other than the once happy memories.
And in sudden, his memory hits him with the day he spent at the Lee manor, and finding exact same unknown worded papers.
'Those papers! You know how to read them too?'
'𝑌𝑒𝑠' The wolf replies in an obvious tone, frustrating it's human even more.
"Are you fucking kidding me?!" Throwing himself off the dusted place, Jungkook strodes out of the camp.
"Jungkook, where are you going?"
"Hyung, I'm going to the Lee manor. I think I found something" he starts running before Hobi could say anything. He could hear the latter running behind him, but Jungkook is faster as he easily outruns the latter, sprinting towards the Lee manor.
Skipping inside the familiar ground, Jungkook sees a black carriage parked outside, maybe waiting to carry someone. There were many guards surrounded, and everyone seemed to be in a hurry, running back and forth in the manor.
Jungkook easily enters the Officium through the railings with the help of hanging branches.
Checking the office for any scents, and finding out there's none other than him in there, Jungkook starts searching for the documents again.
He could hear a commotion outside, making him peek through the thin gap of the stoned door, and saw a group of guard wolves on the floor below, leaving.
Following the wolves there came a heavy scent, preferably an Alpha,
with his pheromones more stronger and heavier leaving before them.
Jungkook assumes it to be Alpha Lee, as he could be the only one with dominating pheromones other than Lee Jaehyun, who Jungkook had already killed.
With a smirk, Jungkook waits for everyone to leave, and once he finds himself the only person in the Manor, he starts his search.
By the time Jungkook finds which locker he had broken into - since there were many drawers in the room - before, the moon's already etched out in the sky. Having immersed in breaking down the lock,
Jungkook barely misses the branch he just climbed in from, creek. His wolf ears pick the sound in a second, his claws creeping out, ready for attack as he places his foot carefully, and snoops a glance out the balcony.
He sees a head, and then a pair of hands. Someone's trying to climb up here, other than him. Jungkook places his claws on the thickest branch, wanting to cut it down as it'll leave the person attempting to climb up, fall down.
With a low growl as a warning, Jungkook looks down and halts on seeing a familiar face.
"Jungkookie, help me" Hobi's voice sounds strained. His face flushed red with all the rough attempts to climb to a third floor.
"Hyung, aren't you an Alpha?"
"Just get me in, asshole"
Scoffing, he gives a hand to the latter, helping him to get in the officium. "Why are you here, hyung?" Jungkook asks as he moves around the table to break the lock of the drawer, again.
"I– thought. You could. Use s-ome help-p" Hobi tries to answer, though half of his words seem to be caught down by his heavy breathing.
"I was fine doing this alone" Jungkook chuckled, proud at how he had yet again managed to break in the lock cleanly.
Hobi comes around muttering an 'ungrateful brat' as they look over the newly found document and the Lee scepter laying beside.
Taehyung stands awed at the decorated ground. There were flowers of all colours tied in a garland and lanterns with little lightbulbs hanging over everywhere. Small pup wolves running around, carrying torches.
It was an expected sight as it happens every time and each time Taehyung's heart warms at how happy everyone looks.
There's a part of his heart, where it aches for not being able to bring Jungkook here with him, to show everyone that he has an Alpha, strong and powerful, as his mate.
He looks up at the sky, finding the moon, and he prays hoping everything ends soon and in peace.
'𝐼𝑡 𝑤𝑖𝑙𝑙 𝑎𝑙𝑙 𝑒𝑛𝑑 𝑠𝑜𝑜𝑛, 𝑑𝑜𝑛'𝑡 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑟𝑦' Taehyung flinches when a voice inside his head speaks.
'I should really get used to this' Taehyung says back to his wolf, who just replies with a mocking laugh.
He hears someone approaching him, and trying to subtly clear their throat. Turning around he finds Jaesung standing there with a cute smile.
He smiles widely at Taehyung who frowns, thinking how this young Alpha always managed to look happy. Upon Taehyung's frown, Jaesung's smile dim and his brows furrowed in confusion.
"Taehyung-ssi, did I do something wrong?"
"No" he answers abruptly, and walks forward without the Alpha, who runs behind to catch up with him.
The festive goes on, some feasting and the others dancing around to soft music. Taehyung was now seated together with a few other pack leader's families, as his parents indulged in serious talk.
He wasn't interested in anything until someone brought up the talk concerning his mate. And finding it none other than Alpha Lee, Taehyung grunts in annoyance.
"I heard the rogue is in fact a Lycaon. Is it true?"
The table falls to a pin drop silence, for a second, and then starts the mild whispers.
Though Taehyung had heard that this Alpha had asked the same question at Namjoon two other times when he visited their pack, he still managed to make it aware in front of everyone.
His father wipes the corner of his mouth with a hand tissue, and utters in a calm tone.
"I'm sure there's been a mistake, Lee. Since, there are no Lycaons anymore and it is confirmed that it is the rogue hunting our pack"
"Oh, really. That's good then. Considering how lycaons are wild and beast-ful. No doubt they were called, Death-dealers"
The murmurs didn't stop, and the topic had seemed to have captured everyone's attention.
Jaesung looked uncomfortable beside his father, eyes darting up to Taehyung each time the lycaon was brought up, making him fidget in his seat.
When the conversation slightly changes to some pack issues, Taehyung sighs in relief and takes a bite of meat, only to choke on it when the Alpha directs his next question at him.
"Did Taehyung find his mate, yet?"
This time his mother answers for him, "No, but we hope the Goddess has perfect plans for him"
"He's still mateless..?" With a mocking smirk, Alpha Lee adds, "Maybe he should hide it better"
The last part of his words were just whispers, but it managed to halt Taehyung's heart to numbness
He felt like he had bathed in cold water with how fast his body started to shiver. He wasn't able to breathe, or even to pretend as if the Alpha's words were nothing.
"What is it, Taehyung? You seem to be uncomf-"
"Taehyung! I have somewhere I'd like to take you, will you come?" Jaesung asks, cutting his father's word, making him pass a low growl at his son, who didn't care enough.
Taehyung still couldn't decipher what happened, as he gaped at Jaesung.
"Yes, Taehyung would love to" Junhee answers for Taehyung, pushing him up towards the young Alpha to enjoy the night.
They walked in silence, as Jaesung takes the lead and takes them a little far from the loudness of the festive.
"I– I thought the silence will help you calm down" Jaesung speaks up suddenly. "What?" Taehyung asks dumbfounded.
"You look nervous. Maybe uncomfortable..to deal with my father? So, I thought this will help you.."
"Oh.. Thank you for being considerate, Jaesungsi"
On Taehyung's reply, he sends over a wide smile at him, making Taehyung chuckle as well.
"You know, I have always admired you, Taehyung" He stops walking, forcing Taehyung to do the same, as he rounds and stand before him.
"You always looked like you had everything covered, beautiful and elegant. Just like an ideal omega.." he softly utters, grabbing Taehyung's hand with utmost care.
Taehyung smiles, trying to take his hands away, but the latter continued to talk, "I always thought what it would feel like to fall in love with someone as amazing as you. Maybe in the wonder, I would've fallen too.."
"I know this is sudden, but Taehyung-ah, I like you.. and I want you to be my mate.."
His confession becomes the second reason Taehyung forgets to breathe for the night. He takes a minute looking back at the hopeful eyes at him, and clears his throat.
"No-o, I think you have take-"
"I know you have a mate out there, Taehyung. Is it the rogue? The rogue or lycaon or whatever it is. Is he the one?"
Taehyung feels like a lightening bolt had hit him. He couldn't bring himself to deny, as he finds himself robbed of words.
"I was right.. it is him"
"No-o I don't know what you are talking about"
"I can be better than him!" Jaesung continues not letting Taehyung speak anymore. " I can be a better mate than him. I would take care of you, and would do anything for you. So, please will you accept me as your mate?"
Grabbing both of Taehyung's elbow in his hands, Jaesung cornered him, leaning forward inch by inch.
Taehyung squirms in the hold, trying to get away. His wolf screams of the touch, wanting to be surrounded in Pine pheromones of his Alpha
"What do you think you are doing Jaesung?!" A voice disrupts the space Jaesung created, making him lose his hold on Taehyung and step away. Turning around Taehyung's breath hitched along with Jaesung as they eye a pair of red aimed at them.
"Jungkook, would you tell me what we are doing here?" Hobi asks. "Hyung, I told you this document is the proof"
"You mean the document containing the procedure of how lycaons were created?? Jungkook!
This will never be a proof! I'm telling you each pack signed this in consent, so no! No one will take this as proof!"
"Look here hyung, this talks about Michen" Jungkook shows him a page from the disarranged document, pointing at something Hobi couldn't decode.
"Michen is our packs adored pup. And he was noted as a perfect alpha at such a young age! He wasn't born a lycaon!"
Hobi just frowns at whatever Jungkook shows, "Am I missing something? Because I can't seem to get the point here"
"Hyung! They are talking about a pup here hyung! They were turning a Alpha born pup to a lycaon! Weren't they supposed to give some herbs to an unborn fetus, so that they would be born as a lycaon wolf?"
"So, were they 'experimenting' on childern?"
"Yes, and without concern!"
"How are you so sure? And we can't even use that now, this pup or whoever it is will not be a proof anymore.."
Jungkook sighs, "This whole document is of young pups" throwing the papers on the table.
Since they were all dead, no one would take it as proof. And even if it is, it will never bring out the Lee's wrong doings to their pack. He sees Hobi checking the papers, turning them one by one.
Jungkook feels like crying, the haunting memories of his pack all burned and slaughtered, breaking his heart. He hears a gasp from Hobi, turning he finds him showing his hand smudged with black ink.

Hobi abruptly runs in, face twisted in anger and sadness, "Jungkook"
The light of the lune skims back in, filling the room to brightness, indicating that Luperas has ended. Together with Jungkook's heart at Hobi's next work,
