My Second Chance

Chapter 12: #12 Building Trust

Sapphire's P.O.V

I stayed still, shocked at his broken tone. Okay, this wasn't what I was expecting. Probably an angry Alpha, sure. But a sad and broken Alpha... I wasn't prepared for anything like that.

I turned to face him. A little sadness and anxiousness swirling in his eyes. My heart melted. Yeah, I know. I'm an idiot and soft hearted, sue me. "What's wrong?" I asked softly, cupping his cheeks. He shook his head. I could see his guards up again. A little tension returned. "Come on, tell me. You have to learn to trust me in order for me to trust you." I whispered to him.

I couldn't deny the attraction and connection I had to him. Seeing him sad broke my heart. What the hell, Sapph? Drew growled but I ignored her, focusing on my sad mate.

"Can we talk in my office? I... I don't feel save here." He mummered, burying his head into the crook of my neck, breathing under my scent. "Okay." I replied softly in agreement. He unnamed his arms from my waist and Gwen whimpered in my head, missing the touch of our mate. One of his hands went around my back and another under my thighs. Without warning, he lifted me up, making me squeal in surprise. He laughed, his chest vibrating. Wow, we made him laugh, I said, amused. We sure did, Gwen said proudly. Drew just grunted in reply.
