“This party sucks.” Milo looked directly at Axel as if it was his fault. “What do you think?”

 

I think you’re right. But Axel didn’t speak out loud. Why should he? Milo didn’t give a crap what an omega thought. Normally combative, the gamma wolf was obviously spoiling for a fight. It wasn’t the first time Milo had bullied Axel and it wouldn’t be the last.

 

Axel didn’t take it personally. Milo didn’t hate him. He didn’t think Milo felt anything toward him one way or another. The gamma wolf used others to have fun with, and to make himself feel superior. It was just the nature of his wolf. Gammas were pretentious creatures, arrogant and egotistical. They viewed everyone as either strong or weak, and Axel was the weakest in the pack.

 

Milo leaned closer and snapped his fingers in Axel’s face. “Earth to Axel.”

 

Axel jumped. He and the other young wolves were sitting in Levi’s backyard. They’d come outside to get some distance from the old heads who were partying inside the Alpha’s house. The moon rose high in the sky and the twenty-somethings were looking to release some pent-up energy. Ziva, a chubby, raven-haired she-wolf Axel had once coveted, looked more than a little stoned from a joint Czar had passed to her. They were all having a good time. Except him.

 

Milo gave him a poke. “So, are you having a good time, Axel?”

 

Inwardly, Axel groaned. He’d hoped once he was outside, he’d be able to sneak away, but now Milo had put him on the spot. What could he say? He was here because of his parents. “It’s where you’re supposed to be,” his father had warned. What twenty-one-year-old man allowed his parents to tell him what to do? Only an omega.

 

Axel looked up at Milo. “It’s not the best party I’ve ever been to, but I came out of respect for the Alpha, to celebrate the birth of his first son.”

Milo grinned. “Ah, yes. Pack mentality. The lowly omega is afraid to show disrespect to the Alpha.”

 

“You’re here,” Axel blurted out.

 

Milo took a long swallow of his beer and changed the subject. “So, Axel, what was the best party you’ve ever been to?”

 

Axel sighed. “I don’t remember.”

 

Milo’s grin widened. “Could it have been the Alpha’s bachelor party?”

Axel’s heart beat faster. He’d had enough. It was time to leave. “It’s late. I’m going home.” He started to rise.

 

Milo put a hand on Axel’s shoulder and pushed him back down on the grass. The others closed in and circled him.

 

“The night is young. Let’s play a game. Something fun like Truth or Dare.”

 

Axel shook his head. “I’m tired.”

 

“Don’t be a wet blanket, Axel.”

 

The others laughed and egged him on. Czar snorted. “He can’t help it. He still wets his blanket every night.”

 

“Fuck you.”

 

Milo put a hand on Axel’s back. “Relax. I've got your back.”

 

“Right. Like you did at the bachelor party.”

 

“Yes, the bachelor party. Tell us about that night. Come on, Axel. Truth or dare. Tell the true story…” Milo paused. “Or I dare you to give me a blow job.”

 

What the fuck? “I'm straight.”

 

Milo laughed. “So am I, but sometimes bros like to get off together.”

 

Everyone started chanting. “Say it or suck it. Say it or suck it. Say it or suck it.”

 

Damn Milo. And damn dear old dad for wrangling Axel an invite to the bachelor party. His parents always pushed him into uncomfortable situations, hoping he’d make friends and be accepted but it never worked out. Levi and the others were big men and they had rugged good looks. They were all into showing off their strength and sexual abilities. Axel was nothing like them, and no matter how hard he tried, he would never be one of their bromantic circle. Not that he cared; he enjoyed being on his own. Yet, he allowed himself to be pushed into these embarrassing situations time after time.

 

Everyone looked at him expectantly.

 

Trapped. Axel stood and stretched out his neck, as if straining for height amid the others. “Okay, here’s the truth. I was at the bachelor party and we went to a strip club. Maybe I drank too much, but so did everyone else. It was a good time. End of story.”

 

“That’s hardly the whole story.” Milo picked up where Axel left off. “It was one hell of a night. Levi was smitten with Raven and totally occupied, so we gave him some space and decided to celebrate Axel’s first time at a strip club.”
