Changmin was fine without a mate; he had been okay ever since he became a werewolf. But little did he expect his world to turn upside down when he finally met his mate.

Here is Chapter 4! This is a work that I am super happy about and I would love to hear your comments and reviews! 🙂
True enough, as soon as Changmin stepped through the front door, Yunho and Jaejoong were waiting for him in the living room.
“How’s the patrol?” Yunho spoke first.
“It…um…it was…okay.” Changmin stuttered. (“The one thing Changmin doesn’t do well is lie.” As Junsu likes to put it.)
Instead of questioning him further, the pack Alpha simply placed a hand on his shoulder and gave him an understanding smile before walking away. Jaejoong followed behind him, but not before giving Changmin a small hug.
‘Yes, but they are giving you space.’ Wolf gently reminded him. ‘Yunho is a good Alpha.’ And Changmin couldn’t agree more.
Changmin spent the next few days desperately trying to push his feelings down. He was feeling a constant desire to meet and see his mate again (‘You didn’t even get her name. How are you going to find her?’ Wolf smirked, causing Changmin to huff in annoyance.) and he could not concentrate on anything. The pack could sense that something was wrong but they were kind enough to give him space and not push him to reveal everything.
Though he appreciated everyone’s intentions, the sense of desire and longing for his mate eventually overcame him. Banging loudly on Junsu’s door, he let himself in even before the latter said anything.
“I was waiting for you to come, you know?” Junsu spoke softly, lying on his bed and reading a book. He turned around to face Changmin and smiled.
Sighing, Changmin sank to the ground. “It’s complicated.”
“I can deal with complicated.” Junsu closed his book. As the submissive of the pack, Junsu was like the glue that held everyone together. He helped to calm the pack down and listened to everyone’s troubles.
“I’m not sure how to put it across…” Changmin hesitated. “Do you promise not to tell anyone about it?”
Junsu gave a warm smile. “I promise.”
“I…I found my mate.” Not knowing how to put it across in words, Changmin decided that it was easier to show it to Junsu instead. He recounted that fateful encounter to the elder pack member through the pack bonds, trying to shield the other members out.
Junsu gasped. “Your mate! You need to tell Yunho.”
“I know. But what if…” What if Yunho kicks me out?
Apparently, Junsu was thinking the exact same question. Placing a hand on the youngest’s shoulder, he gave Changmin a reassuring smile. “I’m sure Yunho wouldn’t. You know he wouldn’t.”
Wolf whined in agreement. ‘Yunho will understand. The pack will understand.’
“Thanks.” Changmin hugged the submissive. He didn’t talk to Junsu as often as he should have (when he had troubles) but everytime he did, Junsu seemed to be able to solve all his issues for him.
Slowly closing the door behind him, Changmin walked with heavy steps into the kitchen, in search of the Alpha. Jaejoong was preparing dinner and the said Alpha had his arms around the older man’s waist, face buried into his neck. Yunho was whispering into his mate’s ear, causing the older man to giggle slightly. Just as he was about to leave to give the couple some privacy, they noticed his presence and immediately broke away.
“What’s wrong, Min?” Yunho’s usually calm voice had a worried tone to it. Not that Changmin could blame him, considering that he had hid the truth from the pack for weeks.
“I…I need to talk to you. Both of you.” He whispered. Part of him felt guilty, guilty for having hid such an important truth from his Alpha; another part of him felt scared, scared of what would happen if his Alpha did not accept him. Immediately, the two was at his side.
“We’ll talk in the room.” Yunho grasped onto Changmin’s hand firmly and for once, the younger man submitted willingly. Even Wolf felt the pressure of Yunho’s authoritative aura.
“Yun.” Jaejoong placed a hand onto the Alpha’s shoulder as they sat on the bed. Almost instantly, Changmin could sense the tension in the air disappearing and he was grateful to Jaejoong for that. While Yunho was one of the best Alphas out there, like all other Alphas, he was sometimes unable to control his temper when his dominance was threatened.
Luckily for him (and the rest of the pack), Jaejoong was doing an excellent job of being Yunho’s mate. As the Alpha’s mate, Jaejoong helped to calm the pack leader down and also ensured things were in order when the Alpha was not around.
Giving a long sigh, Yunho faced Jaejoong and gave him a small but knowing smile before looking back at Changmin again. “Sorry Min, did I scare you?”
“No, no that doesn’t matter.” Changmin hesitated. “I have something to tell you and…”
“Hey, it’s okay. You know that no matter what happens, you’ll always be our dearest maknae.” Jaejoong gave him a big hug. “And I’ll definitely protect you from this big bad wolf over here.” He signalled to Yunho, who appeared offended, earning a chuckle from Changmin.
