The glow had faded and Cody, once more in the real world, couldn't move. What he'd seen was so painful he wondered how he could take any more sessions like this. The whipping, beating, and abuse broke his heart. He knew he had no choice but what about his Fated Mate? Would he want to live with someone like me? Cody rose, still weak from his visions, as he heard footsteps along the path. Sitting down on a fallen tree, he waited to see who was coming.
Steel emerged from the woods and stopped short. He expected to see Cody meditating but instead found him staring up into the trees, apparently listening to the sounds of birds, squirrels, rabbits and probably a bear or two ambling nearby. But that wasn't what caught his attention, no, it was the look of sorrow and pain reflected in Cody's body. What the fuck is happening to Cody and why is he in pain? Oh, gods, please Fates, tell me Cody isn't going to die! Is that why he's rejecting his mate? Fuck!
Waiting to be acknowledged, Steel stood still while studying Cody. Here was a someone that looked haggard—it was the only word he could think of to describe him. In all his years, he'd never seen any shifter as young as Cody look so old and weary. Steel couldn't stay still any longer and approached him, reaching out to offer comfort. For what? He wasn't sure but if there was ever a man needing reassurance, the shifter in front of him did. He placed a hand on Cody's shoulder and gasped after Cody turned to look at him. For there, in the eyes staring back at him, was all the sorrow, heartbreak and pain found in the world. Cody's misery pulled Steel in and, wrapping his arms around him in an encompassing hug, he tried to relieve Cody of the burden he was carrying.
For what seemed like hours, Steel gave what comfort he could while Cody gratefully took it in an effort to block the visions from his mind. Finally, Cody pulled back, surreptitiously wiping tears away.
"Jackson wants to see me, huh?"
"Yes, he does," Steel said before adding, "Cody, is there anything I can do?"
"No. Yes, take care of Jackson and my brothers for me. I'll be leaving for awhile and I know they're going to worry."
"What do you mean, 'leaving for awhile'?"
