"Wakey, wakey my precious wolf." Nebi said as he brushed his fingers through Nathan's hair, pushing it away from his sleeping face. He knew he would get and earful from his mate, but he couldn't help but come into the cage once the moon had passed. "Nathan."
The wolf stirred, letting out a little groan, his single eye opening. "Nebi?" He looked around, remembering where he was. "What are you doing in here? When did you come in here? I..."
Nebi pressed a kiss to his lips, silencing him and causing a little whine to escape his lips. "Hush, I waited until you had shifted back. I wanted to wake you."
"You could have done that from the other side of the cage."
"That's no fun. Besides, I have work today and I really wanted to be a good mate and wake you. I have breakfast upstairs, I'm sure you're hungry."
Nathan sighed as he reached up and tucked Nebi's hair behind his ear. What was he going to do with his leopard. He was too reckless and that scared Nathan. "Alright, I love you."
"I love you too." Nebi gave him another kiss then got up and grabbed the pair of sweats he had brought down for Nathan. He waited as his mate pulled them on, letting his gaze sweep over his wolf. "Damn, I almost regret bringing them to you."
Nathan blushed. "I think you enjoy teasing me a little too much."
They went upstairs and Nebi had him set down so he could serve him. "So, what kind of work?"
"You know what kind, the messy kind."
"I thought Fino did that and you simply delivered information."
"This needs a more delicate touch."
"You know, my cute face."
Nathan's wolf bared its teeth in jealousy and he did his best to fight the emotion down. It wasn't like Nebi was going there to cheat on him or anything. "I see."
Nebi smiled as he rested his chin in his hand. "Want to come? You seem distressed."
"Nathan, you can't fool me, I could hear your heart and your scent changed."
Nebi leaned over and kissed him, smiling lovingly. "It's okay, it's normal to feel jealous. Come with me, I'll get us a room. It can get lonely when I have to go off alone and you can bale me out if things go south my sweet wolf. The full moon has passed and I'd love to come back to you at the end of the day instead of an empty room."
