Adam fell into a routine. His days were spent working on the ranch while learning the many rules and laws of the pack. Girls seemed to gravitate towards him even more than before, causing him to occasionally get into more trouble. Patricia was insistent on trying to see him again.

He was once again skinny-dipping, but this time on the other side of the lake. He had learned his lesson and made sure to stay away from the docks and Ilene. When he emerged, Patricia stood at the shore. Thankfully his clothing, including his underwear, were still on top of his boots where he had placed them.

Adam walked out of the water not bothering to cover up. She had seen it before.

“You know, fall is not the best time to go swimming.” Patricia looked him up and down, grinning.

He shrugged and stepped into his jeans, not bothering to put his boots or shirt on. “I enjoy swimming and now that I’m a wolf, I don’t have to worry about the temperature.” He didn’t take his eyes off of her. “What do you want Patricia? You are not supposed to be on Hamilton property.”

“I know I shouldn’t be here, but I wanted to wish you a happy birthday.” Pulling a box from out of her back pocket, smiling tentatively, she held her hand out, presenting him with the small gift she had brought.

Adam had completely lost track of time and didn’t even realize it was his birthday. He glanced down at the box. “Thank you, but I really don’t think it’s a good idea.”

“Why are you so uptight?” Patricia all but stomped her foot in her frustration. “It’s just a gift.”

“Because of you, I nearly died,” Adam told her calmly. “In fact, I nearly died twice.”

Stepping closer, Patricia put her hand on his chest and leaned forward, trying to place her lips on his.

Adam frowned and stepped back. “You don’t get it do you?” Holding his hands away from her, making sure he didn’t touch her in anyway.

“You said you love me.” Tears welled in her eyes.

“I did until you stood by and did nothing to help me.” He didn’t understand it, but he still cared for her. He couldn’t let her know this though. She had proven that day on the porch he couldn’t trust her.

“But, I couldn’t do anything.” The tears spilled down her cheeks.

His brows met, a tick in his jaw showed his irritation. “You could have warned me what they were planning instead of calling me to come out and meet you. You set me up to be attacked.”

“Her plan was to have her brother turn you so she could mate with you.”

The voice coming from out of nowhere startled them both. Ilene stood there with her hands on her hips, glaring at Patricia.

Sighing, he ruffled his wet hair so it wasn’t plastered against his head. “I can’t believe that.”

“Adam, it’s true, she has been bragging to the other girls. I heard her myself.”

He turned and stared at Patricia, waiting for her to deny it and of course she did.

“She’s lying! She’s just mad because you won’t pay any attention to her!” The look she gave him pleaded for him to believe her.

“You girls are going to be the death of me.”

The next thing he knew, all hell broke loose and the girls were flying at each other. Kicking, screaming and pulling hair, the whole nine yards.

Without thinking, he stepped up to the brawling girls and grabbed each of them by the shirt and yanked, shoving them apart.

He shoved a little harder than he intended and Patricia landed on her ass, staring up at him in disbelief. Then down at her shirt, which had ripped in the process of him pulling them apart.

She scrambled to her feet. Ilene laughing fueled her rage and she dove for her again.

“Enough!” Adam yelled, stepping in between them. His voice was commanding and the two girls stopped immediately, stepping back from one another. “You,” he pointed at Patricia, “go home and don’t come back here again. I don’t want anything to do with you.”

He turned to Ilene with a frown. “And you. Go back to the house.” Staring between the girls he said, “You are both crazy!”
