Title : Alpha-match 2 : Mender (4.1)
Pairing : Sho/Jun l Ohno/Nino
Rating : NC 17
Summary : Answering this mate-call was Jun’s sort-of last chance to prove to himself – and to his father, his family – that he didn’t need their help. He was going to find his mate on his own, build his own family outside that pack. He was going to prove himself worthy of a mate’s bite, and he was going to do it on his own way, his own terms.

Jun woke to his head pounding like it was being smash in half.

“Argh –“ he groaned, then tried to shift on his side and cursed when his bones crack in fifteen different places. Everything hurt – his head, his shoulders, his hips, his legs, and god damn it, he was going to be sick.

Something cold was being pressed against his cheek and Jun at least found the brains to open his eyes and squint at the terrible nuisance first before he decided to swing his fist at it to shove it away.

It was his mate.

“Water,” his mate said, nudging Jun with the water bottle he had in his hand. “You need to drink.” The other man said as he grabbed Jun’s wrist and held it up, guiding Jun’s fingers around the bottle.

Jun wanted to be grateful but he’s in pain and his mate sure seemed like he’d rather be somewhere else than here. Jun was torn between throwing a fit and feeling bad for the other man for having someone to take care of all of a sudden. Jun figured the other guy was used to being alone and tending to his own needs, and having been assigned a mate to be with would certainly take a little bit more time to get used to.

Jun perfectly understood it, of course, but did the other man have to look so freaking glum all the time? It wasn’t like this was all Jun’s idea, after all, and if he really didn’t want Jun here, well, Jun was certain that could still be arranged.

Right?

But then Jun remembered the other night, mentally groaning at the memory of himself crouched on all fours and egging his mate on like a common whore. It wasn’t like he’d initiated the sex all by himself (and even if he wanted to, he wouldn’t, he wouldn’t) because it was rather obvious that both he and his mate felt it then – the connection, the fact that they were so hot for each other that fucking each other right then and there felt natural, and knew that it wasn’t all just because of the bite.

But was that enough reason to stay with this man who seemed disgusted with the idea of having Jun around?

“Are you okay? Matsumoto-san?”

Jun blinked. Was that a trick question? If it was, what was he supposed to say?

“No,” he said, groaning internally. Great. What a way to fuck up a supposedly destined relationship right off the bat, mouth. You’re the greatest.

To Jun’s credit, his mate didn’t even look the least bit affected and had simply took Jun’s sour attitude in stride.

“That’s understandable,” his mate said, water bottle still in hand. “you had a rough night.”

Jun, feeling the phantom embarrassment creeping back in, groaned quietly under his breath.

“Tell me about it,” he murmured, cheeks warm.

Sho frowned and stared at his mate who looked a little worse for wear. Well, ‘a little’ might even be an understatement, considering the fact that he had to get the help of his packmates the night before just to be able to make sure he wouldn’t lose his mate out there in the woods.

It was expectedly difficult to placate a newly-shifted wolf, and in Matsumoto’s case, it was even harder.

It came with the obvious fact that Matsumoto came from an Elite pack – filthy rich, most probably – one that had money to spend, and ending up in a pack like theirs could be somehow aggravating. Sho was surprised the other man didn’t outright bolt the second he realized what he was getting himself into, though it sure seemed like Matsumoto was struggling with his wolf the second he let him out, and Sho found it specifically difficult to approach him once they were out there on a run.

But it wasn’t just that. Sho found an even bigger problem to deal with and it wasn’t just the fear of losing his mate last night when he shifted the first time.

It was the fact that he’d fucked his mate prior to the bite and had immensely enjoyed it, that the mere sight of his mate was enough to make his wolf roar in fucking triumph. It didn’t come as a surprise that he and his wolf are in agreement to this, because Sho hadn’t met someone who looked so fucking beautiful as a man, and equally as gorgeous in his lupine form. He swore he had to fight off a fucking wolf erection the whole time he was following his mate during his run, and it was plain torture.

“I didn’t…um, hurt anybody, did I?” Matsumoto asked, voice low and hesitant. Sho wondered why Matsumoto thought he could hurt anybody when he was the only vulnerable one among all of them running the night before.

Sho shook his head. “No, you didn’t.” he said. Because I was with you.

Matsumoto seemed relieved; for a second there, Sho felt like running his fingertips across Matsumoto’s cheek but thankfully caught himself before he did.

“Drink your water,” he said instead as he pushed himself up and away from the bed. “You need it.”

The dizziness thankfully didn’t last long.

But what took over its place was more vicious, because Jun soon found himself scouring his mate’s kitchen for food, stomach growling in protest. If he was promptly disappointed seeing that his mate’s fridge only had packs of yoghurts stored in there, he wisely didn’t show it.

“I…don’t cook,” his mate mumbled behind him, sounding forlornly embarrassed.

“Obviously,” Jun said before he went back to the bedroom to hunt for his wallet.

Sho was afraid to ask but he guessed he needed to. You’re mated now, he told himself, watching his mate from behind, applying something to his hair from where Sho had seated himself on the couch with a frown.

Ask him where he’s going and know if he needs you to take him there…he murmured under his breath.

“Um –“ he ended up saying instead. His mate turned his way and Sho swore something in his brain twist out of place.

Must be that word-producing nerve, he wasn’t entirely sure, because despite the fact that he knew what he wanted to say, he couldn’t, ending up staring at his mate with his mouth parted open like a total creep.

Damn, how do they make people like him, seriously? He’s so fucking good-looking, mouth-wateringly gorgeous to be honest, and fuck, that’s your mate, man. Go get him.

He stood up. Then walked two steps forward. Then remembered what he was doing and stopped.

“Do you need anything from the store?”

“Huh?”

His mate blinked. “Food, Sakurai-san. I did say I was going to buy food, yes?”

I’d rather eat you instead, Sho’s brain was saying but Sho’s brain-to-mouth filter was obviously defective too, hearing himself saying the words before he even realized it.

His mate, thankfully, was either too hungry or too pissed to even notice, waving his hand and making sure he had his wallet and Sho’s housekeys securely in his pocket as he walked towards the door.

He was reading it all wrong.

Jun was most certain this was the case as he started to walk away, absently trekking the way towards the nearest convenience store he saw the day before. He’d already mentally listed the things he needed, but every so often he would get distracted by the thought of his mate saying the oddest things in the most unexpected times, and damn, was that terribly frustrating.

But then again, he could probably say the same thing about himself. It wasn’t like he was an easy guy to figure out, after all, but even then, at least he was talking.

Unfortunately, his mate was a completely different story altogether.

Sure the sex was great, there was no doubt about that, but that didn’t mean it was enough to keep the relationship going. They have to be able to establish a common ground, be able to communicate like how a normal couple would, and then they would start from there. Jun would be lying if he said it would be easy – it certainly wouldn’t, judging with how difficult it already was to figure out what his mate meant most of the time, especially when he wasn’t so keen at talking but Jun honestly wanted to find out.

He didn’t like the idea that he’d have to run away again just because things weren’t going towards the direction he wanted them to go. He couldn’t – well, he could, but he honestly didn’t want to. He wanted to think that he owed it to himself for coming this far, but well, no; not really.

Jun knew it had something to do with his mate – with Sakurai Sho himself.

He sighed. This was certainly going to be tough, but Jun knew he wanted to try. He wanted to find out where that instant attraction would take them, and it didn’t matter now how hard he had to work to make it happen.

You can do it, he told himself as he opened the door of the convenience store and stepped inside, pausing to find a familiar figure surveying the aisle with a thoughtful look on his face.
