The bed is too big; the bed is too small. He can’t get up, can’t stand to be more than an arm’s length away from Nicky. But if he moves closer, it’ll be all over. So Joe rolls over to face away from Nicky, even though he can still feel the alpha’s unsettling gaze on his naked spine. Maybe if he makes it another few minutes without Nicky’s touch on his skin he’ll be able to think clearly.
When Nicky sunk his teeth into Joe’s neck during their bonding ceremony, Joe felt the way it tightened and pulled them together, felt the way Nicky sunk into his body, thick like resin pierced into his skin.
It’s like he’s being tugged, like he’s been drugged, like there’s a threaded string attaching him to this strange alpha. He’s never heard of a bond being this strong and yet this fragile before, strife with tension and yet pulling, pulling, pulling him in.
