Dimitri Gets Hit With The Mating Pull
(Prologue GOMC alternative view point)
Dimitri leaned up against the wall of the alley at the back of school. The one that led directly to the cafeteria. If that little shit did what he always did when he’d been chased, Shane West would be running straight into his clutches in less than two minutes. Dimitri was determined to give the man a hiding to remember. After all, it was his last week of school. The following week he was due to start his position at the Jacobs Lake Police Department. He could hear his father’s voice in his head as he waited.
You’re going to be a respectable member of this pack and this community, boy. No more bullying, no more fucking around. It’s time you stepped up and showed me and your Alpha what you are worth. Any last thing you need to get out of your system, do it before Friday.
Well, today was Thursday and Dimitri did have one more thing on his list of things to do before he settled into the life his father expected him too – beat the shit out of Shane. Dimitri snarled as he thought of the boy who had been the bane of his existence since he was in kindergarten. Pretty boy Shane, with his golden curls, and his soft little face, and that lithe little body – didn’t the boy know how much of a girl he looked? Dimitri didn’t know why the boy’s father didn’t just insist Shane cut his hair. For fucks sake, Shane was prettier than most of the girls Dimitri fucked.
There was something about Shane’s eyes that wouldn’t leave Dimitri’s brain and since he had shifted the month before, the feeling that there was something magical, something special about the boy had increased. Dimitri didn’t like it. Didn’t like how his heart twisted when he saw the pain on Shane’s face while he hit him. Didn’t like the fact that the boy never tried to fight back. The boy was a wimp and everything about him made Dimitri want to howl with rage.
Dimitri growled again as he heard the sounds of running feet and Shane’s labored breathing – good, his plan was working. Shane was so predictable. He would head for the cafeteria because he knew that Dimitri and his buddies couldn’t hit him there. Dimitri didn’t want to get suspended during his last week of school. Getting his friends to herd the boy in his direction was just too easy. Once Shane turned into the alley, he’d be trapped.
And there he was. Flushed and panting hard, Shane stood like a deer caught in the headlights of a car as he caught sight of Dimitri. Dimitri narrowed his eyes, watching the boy as he weighed up his options. Dimitri wasn’t stupid. His friends were blocking one end of the alley and the only way Shane could go, was right past him.
“There you are little pretty boy,” he snarled. “I was hoping to get one more crack at you before I left.”
Damn, Shane must be going through a growth spurt, although he was still a lot shorter than Dimitri. But the way those jeans looked painted on, and that shirt – since when did pretty boy have a chest worth looking at? Dimitri snarled as he saw from Shane’s stance that the boy had made a decision. Just as he suspected, Shane was going to run and Dimitri tensed, waiting for the boy to move.
As soon as Shane’s weight shifted Dimitri reached out, grabbing him around the waist with one arm and pulling the boy to his chest. Shane’s body hit Dimitri’s with a solid clunk and Shane’s scent blasted up Dimitri’s nostrils. Mother of God, Dimitri had never smelled anything like it before – the soft tones of vanilla and coconut that spoke of home and comfort and everything worth fighting for. Dimitri’s cock went from whoa to got-to-fuck-him-now in less than five seconds and unable to stop himself, Dimitri moaned, burying his face in Shane’s neck. He had to get more of that scent. He wanted to wallow in it, sniff Shane all over, and then fuck the man senseless until neither one of them could remember their name.
“What you trying to do, D? Trying to snog the faggot? Gonna give him a hickey?” Louis’s voice broke through Dimitri’s lust fog, and he pushed Shane away, wincing as he saw the boy land in a heap on the ground.
“Course not,” Dimitri said, straightening up and discretely adjusting his cock that would not go down. “I’m more inclined to rip his throat out with my teeth. But I can’t be bothered with this shit. Don’t want to get blood on my jacket. Come on, let’s get a beer.”
Dimitri herded his friends back out of the alley, refusing to look back at Shane. He knew what that smell was. Every wolf shifter knew from childhood about the pull and effect of the mating scent. The pretty boy he’d been bullying for years was his fated mate. How fucking ironic was that? As Dimitri ignored his wolf’s urge to go back and check on Shane, he determinedly pushed all thoughts of mating away. He was going to be a police detective. He was going to be respected in his pack and his home town. When the time came he was going to marry a girl and have pups. He was never going near Shane again. Not ever.

Shane West was used to being the only wolf shifter at the Stockton Police Department. His enhanced senses helped him do his job efficiently and he prided himself on keeping control of his animal instincts. Gay from the first day he’d shifted, he also expected to live his long life alone, and provided it meant that he didn’t have to come into contact with any of his ex-pack, he told himself he was happy. And he was. Until Dimitri Polst was assigned as his new partner.
Confirmed ladies man, Dimitri Polst knew Shane from before he’d ever shifted into his wolf form. Two years older and from the same pack, Dimitri had made it his teenage mission to bring as much pain and humiliation to pretty-boy Shane as possible. But years later, he searched for that pretty boy, now all grown up, with a completely different mission in mind.
Being fated mates was hard enough, but when one man is straight and the other one has no reason to trust, then sparks are bound to fly. Add in a serial killer who is making inroads into the gay population and a possible shifter involvement, and Shane and Dimitri have a lot of thing to overcome before they get their HEA.
By the time Dimitri had got to the back door of the club he knew his wolf was close to the surface. He could feel his eyes changing and the hair on his arms start to tingle. It was only through sheer force of will that he stopped the change completely. Must not shift in front of humans, he tried to remind himself as he searched the dark alley, sniffing for his mate’s unique scent. There, deep in the shadows. The young blond was wrapped around Shane’s waist and neck like he belonged there.
Growling loudly Dimitri strode over to where the two men were hidden, his hands changing into claws as he itched to grab the little interloper and tear his body to inch sized bloody pieces. He couldn’t and wouldn’t hurt his mate, but he could and definitely would shred the little blond until he wasn’t a threat to Dimitri’s mating again.
“Dimitri, stop damn it!” Shane called out in a low voice as he carefully wound the young blond’s arms from his neck. “This is not what you think.”
Dimitri stopped himself, just, and watched as Shane spoke in a low voice in CJ’s ear and then gave him some money. CJ looked up at Dimitri and scowled at him and then took off back into the club. Shane flung out his arm and grabbed Dimitri by his belt loops and smashed him into the same wall he had been leaning on while he was entangled in his blond. But Shane’s eyes weren’t full of passion, Dimitri noticed. His mate was pissed off with him, big time.
“You just cost me some valuable information, fuck wit. Now what the hell did you think you were doing?” Shane snarled at him in a low voice.
“Is that how you get all of your information, detective,” Dimitri snarled right back. “By giving sexual favors to your tipsters?” Fuck, with Shane so close Dimitri could barely breathe. His cock was so hard in his jeans that it hurt and he couldn’t break his stare with his mate. Man, this guy was awesome when he was angry.
Shane tipped his head to the side and then took in a deep breath, obviously smelling Dimitri’s arousal. For a moment he looked confused, but that expression was gone in an instant and Shane’s angry gaze was back again. He leaned in flush against Dimitri’s body and growled softly in his ear, “CJ is an informant of mine. He’s been beaten before for talking to the wrong people and I don’t want to see my friend in hospital. We act like a hookup so he will be safe, asshole. So don’t go judging what you don’t understand.”
“But you’ve fucked him, right?” Dimitri regretted the words the instant they came out of his mouth as he watched a flash of pure murderous intent race across his mate’s hard face.
“Not that it’s any of your business, fuckwit, but I have never done anything sexually with CJ or any of my informants. Unlike you, I have standards.” Dimitri knew Shane was referring to the fact that when Dimitri was still in school he used to fuck anything in a skirt regardless of who it was. With his jock reputation and good looks he never lacked for girls willing to lift those skirts and give him what he wanted.
But right now Dimitri didn’t care that Shane was angry with him, or that he might have fucked up an investigation. Shane was leaning on him, chest to chest, but had kept his groin area away from Dimitri. And Dimitri was so turned on he couldn’t think. He needed friction on his cock and he needed it now. He reached out and grabbed Shane by his hips and pulled the man’s groin into his. Both men groaned as their dual erections nudged each other and Dimitri rocked into Shane looking for more.
“What the fuck do you think you are doing?” Shane snarled. Dimitri could see Shane’s eyes were blown with lust and the man was panting softly. Against his cock, Shane’s sizable erection nudged his and for the first time in his life Dimitri wanted to see another man’s cock. But not just any cock – Shane’s.
“I haven’t got a clue,” Dimitri said honestly, his own deep voice raspy with lust, “But I know I like it.”
