When Anna is forced to move in with an old friend and his six housemates, the two had no idea their lives would change so drastically.
How are you suppose to deal with the fact that someone you've known almost all your life turns out to be your mate? Someone you've
always seen as family, that you've been close with since childhood?
& Hoseok's constant jealousy and Anna's snarky attitude proves to be disastrous every time they're within a mile of each other.
All she wants is the person she grew up with and all he wants is for her to stop luring him in.
If that isn't enough, Anna finds out a secret her mother has been harboring
since Anna was a child that proves she may not be as human
as they all thought either.


Theme Song: "Stay Young" - Mike Perry (featuring Tessa)



Hoseok vowing not to take claim to another means that they're stuck with each other. If he isn't going to reject her and she isn't going to reject him to avoid killing him, then what else can she do? There is no other solution.

"Namjoon says you'll die." She swallowed back the burning sensation, a warning that tears are on their way. "I can't kill you."

"I'd rather die than have a mate that accepts me out of pity."

Her eyes widened. "You don't mean that."

"I absolutely mean it."

"Then you reject me."

An expression full of love, hurt, and also pain stared her back in the face. "I'll never reject you."

"And I can't let you die. So, what do we do here?"

Jin offered, "You don't have to accept him yet. It's gone on this long without an acceptance. Right? Why don't you two just take it slow? Obviously, Anna, you still have a lot to learn about Hoseok, including his wolf. Hoseok, you have a lot to talk to Anna about, including the mate bond and how you feel about her. Why not take time to get to know each other as a man and woman? You've known each other as family for so long..."

The pair looked back at each other. It sounds like a good enough plan to Hoseok. On the other hand, Anna doesn't seem convinced. She doubts she would ever be able to see Jung Hoseok as anything but family, that she could see him as a man. But then there have been instances where he's managed to make her blush and feel shy in ways that he shouldn't have been able to.

Finally, she agreed. She isn't accepting him, but she isn't rejecting him either. She promised not to make a decision until she is completely sure that it is the right one. If she has any second thoughts, then she wouldn't give Hoseok an answer yet.

"You can't wait forever, though," Namjoon reasoned. "We eventually need to hear our mate's acceptance. If you wait too long, Hoseok will fall ill."

"Don't pressure her," Lisa said. She put an arm around her daughter's shoulder. "You know...I always thought that you and Hoseok would end up together. You guys were a little too close for comfort as children. Had me worried for a long time, but then after the divorce...I started to wonder a little."

Anna blushed. She only said, "We should probably get going. Hoseok should rest in his own bed."

"We're fine," Hoseok's voice was deeper. When he said "we" instead of "I," she knew to expect those golden eyes when she looked back at him. "Tired but fine."

Suddenly shy to speak to the one that chose her as their mate, Anna shifted in her spot. "You both should still rest."

"She's right. We'll take our leave now, Miss Moon," Namjoon announced. "Come on, guys."

The pack made their way outside. Lisa hugged her daughter farewell for the time being. Since his wolf is out, Hoseok thought it best not to hug her when she reached for a hug from him. He, instead, promised they would visit again. Lisa nodded with a smile, promising to hold him to that promise.

As they made their way outside, Hoseok made to climb into the driver's seat. Anna placed her hand on his shoulder. She was met with golden eyes still. She shivered under his wolf's gaze.
