 “Hope so.” Hop pushed my shirt up and over my head, but instead of removing it he left it over my wrist. “Keep them there.”
“Not fair.”
“Want to enjoy a Cree buffet uninterrupted.”
“But . . .” A moan slipped free as his teeth scraped a path down my chest to my bellybutton.
“Remember our earlier conversation.” Hop nudged the button of my jeans with his nose. “Best place to practice is in bed.”
Good point. I knew how much Hop loved to dominate. He’d never taken it real far, but I’d know he would have loved to bind me in a more intense way. Only reason he hadn’t was because of my unease of being strapped down.
“Baby,” He straddled my legs and tilted his head to the left. “need me to remove the shirt?”
I shook my head and lifted my hips. “Take what you need.”
“Don’t need it.”
Right. He might not have needed it, but I could see the gold flakes in his eyes when he held me in place. I’d always thought it was a fetish, but . . . new facts told me different. It was more than a want. He was a dominate man. His way of life entailed giving orders. People doing as he said. Hop might try to fool himself, but he . . . or his dragon side needed to overtake me, once in a while at least. Full picture of his life meant taking into consideration what my man truly needed.
“Think you do.”
“Fine, but I can live without it.”
“Don’t have to.” I placed my palm against his cheek, smiling up at him. “I can handle it.”
Hop’s slow nip of her lower lip screamed his indecisviness. More like he was taking a beat or two to debate what to do. When he shook his head, my ire rose, but I kept my mouth shut.
“I don’t want to scare you. Or hurt you.”
“Hop, you would not do either. I know you. You would die before you did either. Now give my dragon what he’s been craving.”

Chapter 20
Cree
Wasn’t keen on being ordered, but . . . worth it to have Hop at my side for the rest of my life. People looking at me as a role model didn’t bother me. Once I learned to listen and do as Hop and Charlie said without bucking it’d be smooth sailing. I hoped. Until I did . . . uncomfortable, but handleable. Setting a poor example disgusted me, which would make it easier for me to catch onto what had to be done. Pure thought had my stomach twisting and turning like a tornado.
“Have to admit . . . you are taking it way better than expected.”
Hop’s fear made my forehead burn and the twisting turned into a bubbling that raced from head to toe. Then again . . . it might have been the entire last couple of days. My life had been flipping and flopping everyway. I’d taken thing in stride, on the outside. Inside . . . unease thickened worse than cement. Hop and Charlie couldn’t be allowed to see the real distress coursing through me. I wasn’t fooling myself. They’d be aware of it, but they knew me well enough to keep their mouths shut until I approached them ready to talk.
I’d done a bit of discussing, but . . .the entire situation with Raquel, dad, and mom bothered me more than letting a man control every aspect of my life. Small fact compared to the rest.
“Baby,” Hop cupped my cheek giving me a chaste kiss. “You going to be okay?”
Soon as I knew what to expect from Raquel and Agent Carter. The dream bugged me more than discovering dad and mom lied to me. I’d had many dreams over the years, similar one of pets dying. Even dreamed about one of the raids Agent Carter made on Mr. Thompson, the third ranked Logan House member, after he decked a couple of FBI agents. I told dad about the dream and he’d swore it was a fluke. I hadn’t thought so then, and right then I wished I’d taken my concerns to Hop or Charlie.
“Baby?”
I gave a shake of my head. ‘Not bothered by what you’ve told me. I get all that and will be able to life your way of life.” A simple shrug earned me a quirked eyebrow. “I’ll slip up for a few months. Maybe more. I’ll do my best to be the best other half I can be.”
“Not worried about mess ups.” Hop hugged me close. “It’s unavoidable. Charlie and I know that. So does, the other house members. They’ve watched you grow up and know you. Not as well as Charlie but . . .”
Wasn’t going there, so I diverted things. Sort of. “When’s your dad arriving?” Keeping things based on Hop gave me time to figure out the best way to approach my dream. Wasn’t sure if telling Hop and Charlie was best or not. Might give them a heads up, but . . . if I was wrong then . . . unnecessary worry. Not to mention I’d look like a fool. Worse, insane and in front of Hop’s father. The leader of all Dragons.
“Charlie will come and tell us.” Hop took her waist and directed her onto her back. “Forget about him. Forget about what I told you. Forget about Raquel, Agent Carter, and everything related to the fiasco.”
I arched my neck further back as he kissed the base of it. Sizzling heat followed in the wake of his tongue as he traced my bare skin down to the bottom of my V-shaped t-shirt. Goosebumps formed as his hand slid under my shirt.
“You starting something?”

 Chapter 19

Hop
Cree finding out in my bedroom hadn’t been the plan. Everything had been ruined. The claiming phase began before I asked him to marry me. It sucked ass. I’d wanted the entire experience of Cree learning about my way of life to be easy. Not a jumbled up mess.
Not like his question was a major issue. I knew Cree would know about my Dragon by the end of last night. Meant he’d would’ve been told about what would required of him as my other half. Cree already sated my fears of rejection. Yet . . . him having to follow every little thing I said could have changed his way of thinking on that aspect.
“Hop?”
Here went nothing. “A dragon’s way of life is different, very different, than the way you were raised.”
“How so. Why? Dad was one.”
Good point. Why hadn’t Rex followed the dragon’s way of life. Had he? If so . . . did that mean Cree would be more accepting? A fact I should have thought of asking Charlie.
“You can tell me if the way of life I describe is different than how your parents lived.” Best way I could think of answering without outright showing I’d failed to take note of how Rex and Grace lived. “Our other halves have to do as we say at all times. more so in my case since I’ll be the full leader one day.”
Cree’s pursed lips put a swirl in my stomach. My man wasn’t keen on others giving orders. He accepted them from Charlie and me pretty easy, but . . . He bucked  on ours a time or two.
“What else?”
Uh . . . What else was there to say. I’d pretty much stated it. It’d been clear and concise. Couldn’t think of a different way to say how dragon and their other halves lived. There was no detouring from that path. Other might get away with bending it, but Cree would not. I was the future leader. I had to set an example and that mean living up to the laws. No exceptions. “Not sure what you mean.”
“In all things. No exceptions. Even if you are not around I have no say if an unknown situation arises and you are out of contact. Does what you say overrule what Charlie says, or your father? Do other men have the right to order me around?”
Should have known Cree would nail me with all the fine details. He was smart and had no trouble working out the smallest facts of a situation. She took an in-depth look and broke thing into small scenarios and solves them before they arose.
“Since I’m the future leader there will be no exceptions.” I only restated that part to stress how important that aspect was. Cree knew how to behave, but it was harder for him to not step up and take control of a situation that affected him or his loved ones. “Other dragons, old and new, will look at us as a role model. There will be few times you are without guards, or me.” Another point I made sure to stress. My man had a thing about others watching his back. He tended to take a stand for himself. It’s how he’d been raised. I have to admit, I gave in for Charlie to teach her how to defend herself. Came in handy when Agent Carter invaded his home. “Since my main guars is Charlie he will always be around your, therefore if I am not around you would listen to him. Other than him or my father, no man will give you orders.”
He’d be the ones to give the orders. After me, he’s the next in line until we adopt a child. There were many dragon children that became parentless. Father set up an orphanage for them several years back. It would be a wonderful day when we chose a child to join our family.
That was actually a part of dragon’s way of life that made no sense to me. My other half wasn’t allowed to make decision without my consent, but if something happened to me, the leadership would fall to Cree until a child of ours was of age. And an heir to me did not have to be a male dragon. It could be a she-dragon.
“You are in deep thought.” Cree ran his thumb over my lip. “What’s bothering you?”
“Just confused about how strange our world is operated.”
Hadn’t meant my comment to be spoken, thankfully father wasn’t around to hear. Although . . . if it came right down to it, father might have agreed with my viewpoint. Made no sense for the men to have such tight reins on their other half when it’s possible that one day a female might rule over the entire dragon world.
“I have to agree with that.” Cree’s cute chuckle had me leaning in for a kiss, but he braced his hand on my chest. “I don’t and won’t understand why society did and some still do, believe that there should be a top dog in a relationship.” Cree shrugged and let his hand drop into my lap, resting just an inch from my hardening cock. “But . . . if this is how you live . . . I’ll do my best to adjust to it. You are my life. I’ve known that since we met. That won’t change because you are a dragon or because you are a future leader or because of your way of life.”
Words that sent rapid waves of relief from head to toe. Settled me more than I expected. More than I even knew I was worried about. The dragon might have been all gun-ho about making Cree theirs, but it had been afraid of rejection as much as I had. Hell, Charlie and father had been fearful. Most dragons mated to a human were.

 “Baby, I can’t do so.” He claimed my lips, exploring my mouth with the ferocity of a last kiss. “You are my other half. It is my job to take care of you.”
“I don’t’ want you harmed. You can’t endanger yourself or our family.”
“I can. I will.”
“Not if you are to live up to your job.”
“It doesn’t work that way, baby.”
“It does. It’s your law. Right?”
“it is, but . . . bigger part of me being your other half is putting you above myself and all others.”
“NO! I won’t allow it.” I wiggled from his lap. “I won’t.” I’d leave . . . Fuck. I couldn’t leave him. It would cause destruction. Bring the Fire-Breathing Dragon down onto the world.
“Baby, being my other half means way more than you know right now.”
“Then tell me.”
Hop patted his lap. “Are you sure you’re up to this?”
Wasn’t. Best if I knew it all. “Yes.”

 “Baby, what happened?” Hop picked me up and sat me on his lap.
“Nightmare.” Was all I could say. There was no way I would put words to the dream. Speaking it would make it happen. Agent Carter kept me a secret from Raque for five years. Why? Dad kept me hidden. He wouldn’t have done so simply because I was part of the Dray family line.
There had to be more to it than that. If not . . . dad would not have lied to his best friend and break the custody agreement for something elementary. Wasn’t sure what his reason was, but had a good idea. If someone knew, or believed one person could bring destruction to an entire race they’d stop them. One way or another. Best way to prevent me from doing so was to eliminate me before the legend had a chance to bloom.
“Agent Carter wants me dead.” Fear thickened my voice, revealing the realness of the situation.
“If so . . . he won’t succeed. You are mine. Charlie and I will protect you with our lives.”
That’s what scared me. I didn’t want either of them harmed. They were my only family. If they failed to protect me the other Logan Family members would come to my aid. That would equal more deaths on my hand.
“Promise me you won’t endanger yourself or the rest of the family.” I tightened my hold on around his neck.
