She didn’t need either of them closer than necessary. Her emotional state was just too damn fragile with all Evin had gone through tonight, and she couldn’t trust what her pheromones would reveal.
Ever since her school days, Landry and Kaleb had watched out for her, flirted with her. Yet, it had never gone beyond the feeling of having two extra big brothers in her life. But now…
High school was a long time ago.
Rosa climbed in behind the wheel and closed the driver’s door. Out of the corner of her eye, she watched as Kaleb rubbed a gloved hand over his chin, lowered his gaze, and marched toward his SUV. Her sudden evasion had obviously stung his pride. Rosa’s stomach clenched. God, she hadn’t meant to hurt his feelings.
The hormonal and emotional turmoil churning inside her wasn’t natural…none of it remotely approached natural—the premature rise in her heat and her growing feelings for the two males. If she had gone through a mating ceremony before now, the heat that might rise around the age of thirty would have been extremely mild in comparison or nonexistent if she had already bore a child. Like a flower threatened by an early death that bears fruit as a last ditch effort to procreate, the rising of a female wolf shifter’s heat was her biological clock’s way of doing the same.
But this…this blaze steadily increasing inside her was too early. Four years too early.
Maybe it was the stress she’d endured from a couple of years ago when their father had evicted her twin from the pack after learning he was gay. That combined with her psychic ability and her growing feelings for Landry and Kaleb may have escalated the whole process. It was the only logical explanation.
