It had been almost a month since she had been married to the Werewolf Andre and Adella had to say things weren’t so bad, not anywhere close to perfect but, not bad. She didn’t flinch every time he was near her anymore and no longer feared he would grow violent and lash out at her for things she did or said. She was still quiet and a bit reserved at times, but she felt more comfortable with him. She wasn’t afraid anymore to sleep in the bed with him and had come to know her way around the house. She still butted heads with him about the chores but now that he went to work she was able to do the dishes and laundry and others things he didn’t let her do when he was around. She had yet to redecorate the house her way but she liked it the way it was and was now used to Andre’s schedule, so she had lunch or dinner for him ready when he came home.

She had also started her classes, most of them were private lessons with professors that knew French but a few she had to go to a class setting. She didn’t really like them, the professors spoke English but Evelyn had arranged for her to use a recorder to record the lecture, and then used magic on it to switch it to French so she could understand and take notes. Things weren’t going smoothly but were alright….until today. All her professors were fine, but one. He was known to be an ass already on campus, but had left Adella pretty much alone. But since she couldn’t understand the lectures she had taken to day dreaming in class and apparently her professor finally got fed up. He put the spotlight on her and asked her a question, which she of course didn’t understand. She tried to communicate with him but he bulldozed her, he kept asking and asking then grew cross with her and humiliated her in front of the class because she wouldn’t answer.
S
he had stuck through the rest of the class even as people snickered and gave her glances, but once it was over she quickly left. It was her last class for the day and she was glad for it, because the tears started falling as soon as she walked out the door. She all but ran home, sobbing by the time she got there. She didn’t understand why he had gotten so mad! She didn’t even know what he had gotten mad at her about, which made things worse. When she got home she didn’t let her bad day deter her from making Andre dinner, but she was a mess and kept dropping pots and forgetting how to use the stupid stove. She sniffled and cried the whole time, she kept trying to wipe at her eyes but the tears kept coming in droves. She had been doing so good, now this incident just made her feel just as sad as when she first arrived.

The past month had been a twilight zone for the old alpha. Andre hardly believed in love, let alone marriage, and don’t even bring up an arranged marriage. It was all so silly to him, yet he found himself growing comfortable with his wife. Hell, he even liked her, but don’t let him hear you say that. The wolf was still so secretive about his feelings and only tried to show them here and there only to wind up making Adella uncomfortable. What was a man supposed to do when his wife was so shy to his hands?

Anyway, the wolf was happy. He had been nicer to his students and even heard whispers about how he was liked on campus. Professor Louvel had already been a good teacher, but being in a chipper mood made him all the better. People actually participated now, which was a strange concept for him. People even talked to him, and in that talking he heard about his wife’s incident in her class. The professor was not one who appreciated day dreaming and had confronted her about her dazed pixie expression, but didn’t get the answer he was looking for. When Andre heard about it his stomach turned, and he tried to hurry home. Not before stopping by the professor's office and verbally tearing him a new one for picking on his wife, and being reassured that Adella would recieve nothing but smiles from there on out. Then he hurried home. It wasn’t just to comfort her, but to try and get there before she made dinner. The damn girl always had dinner made and chores done before he could argue with her and try to do them himself.

Walking in the door to his home quietly, he dropped the keys on the table near the door. “Adella?” He called out, already knowing where she was from the sound of a pot dropping in the kitchen. “Addie?” The wolf rounded the corner into the large kitchen and frowned when he saw her face. Rather than asking her what was wrong he went to help her with dinner, but reached around and turned the stove off instead. “Heard you had a bad day, mon chéri.” The wolf then touched her face to wipe at her tears. “Don’t make dinner. Let me treat you.” She deserved to relax after being reamed out.

She was usually more than half way through dinner once he got home, but not today, she had barely started because she kept crying and having to blow her nose, and then wash her hands and then by then she would have to blow her nose again. She was hoping today would be one of the days he would be a little late, but it just wasn’t her day. When she heard him come in and call for her she pursed her lips and quickly wiped at her eyes, trying to occupy herself with cooking and make the tears stop. Maybe she could pass off the stuffy nose as some of the spices were making her sneeze. She glanced back at him though used her hair to try and keep her face shaded “How was your day?” She asked him like she asked him every day like clockwork before going back to the stove and the food. She sniffled “I am going to make cow…do you want cow?” She still wasn’t custom to using terms like beef or pork.

When he turned off the stove she frowned and looked at him better, her lips pouting and trembling as she held back tears but a few escaped and then it was only a few seconds before she burst out sobbing, covering her mouth to try and contain herself but it didn’t work. She then started to ramble incoherently about what happened and how she was so confused and didn’t understand what happened and why she got yelled at, her voice thick and filled with tears.

It would most likely take Andre years to break whatever training they had Adella go through. She tried so hard to be wifely and perfect, but perfect wasn’t what he wanted. It was the little quirks that he liked. The way she fiddled around, or the way she looked so confused at certain terms. Cow, for instance, was something that made him smile. “Beef.” He whispered and corrected her with an amused but humble smile. “No. I don’t want you to make dinner.”

Then the tears came and the wolf in him whimpered. He clenched his jaw to cease the sound from coming out, and wrapped his arms around her to hold her while she sobbed. So be it if it made her uncomfortable. Hopefully that would make her stop crying, since the sound and sight of it wore at him. “Addie, Addie, mon cheri.” He cooed quietly and ran his hand over her hair. “He won’t be bothering you again. That was unacceptable.” Especially to his Adella. The feeling he had to protect her was still so foreign, but couldn’t be helped. How dare someone speak to her like that.

A few minutes passed as he let her cry it out, then finally stepped back and tilted her chin up. “It’s over now. It’s the weekend… you’re free for two days. Lets go out for dinner. We can unwind.” The large wolf wiped the delicate fae’s tears away then ran his hands over her hair to smooth it over. “And you can forget all about that asshole.”

Beef…right, beef, they called cow beef. She just wasn’t used to it, they didn’t even eat cows where she came from. She had been taught since she was a teenager how a woman was to act around a man and when she had been engaged to the first man back home, her mother had taught her everything she was too know how to be a good wife. But Andre confused her, he didn’t want her to do anything she was taught and it left her feeling lost. She still didn’t know what it was he wanted from her, and she was too shy still to ask him. He didn’t want her to cook, clean, do laundry or anything else but that’s all she knew to do other then go to class. She sighed on the inside and mentally shook her head at him.

She still wasn’t used of him touching her so closely, but she was too upset to care at the moment. She wanted comfort and she just had to get used to the fact from now on, he was her source of comfort now, not her mother anymore. She buried her face into his chest and grabbed at his shirt as she cried, sniffling and trying to make herself stop. She took in a breath but it stammered and it just caused a rush of sobs to leave her. She didn’t like getting yelled at, especially when she had no idea what she was being punished for. “I-I don’t know what I did” She cried “I didn’t mean to do anything” She cried on for a little longer but slowly the sobs stopped and then the tears. She closed her eyes and just kept leaned against him until her breathing evened out. It was odd how at first he frightened her with his largeness and now she found security in his arms. So very strange.

She looked up at him with her sad eyes and pouty lips, taking in a deep breath as she felt his hands move over her hair. Why was he so kind? If she ever cried back home in front of her step-father he would only grow cross with her and send her away out of his sight so he didn’t have to deal with her tears. But not Andre, he was so patient. She wasn’t accustomed of going out to eat but she nodded to his suggestion and looked a little worn from all her crying. She then cracked a tiny smile and put a hand on his chest “You are…a good husband...” She said quietly. He was, she knew plenty girls back home in her village who had been arranged to marry men and were not so lucky. Andre was a good man, she had lucked out to be married to a good man.

The wolf was still having a hard time figuring out just why he felt so possessive of a woman he’d just met. Yes, yes, she was his wife – but Evelyn would have tried to convince him not to care. She told him he was basically just her roommate, and to keep her safe. Yet there was a major underlying unmet need in Andre – he missed having a wife but didn’t really know it. Adella was his surrogate to bring him back to the world of reality where people acknowledged their feelings. This was one of the beginning lessons: crying. Seeing her cry made his inner wolf pace and urge him to attack whoever made her cry. It was already done, verbally of course, but he was still uneasy.

“He’s an asshole and didn’t understand you. That’s all, don’t worry about it.” He didn’t want to explain it more because he wanted the subject over and done with. That was how Andre was. If something angered him or made him upset he quickly moved on and didn’t dwell on the subject to figure out why.

Peace at last showed when Adella looked up without new tears in her eyes. The wolf didn’t smile at first, but offered a comforting presence when toying with her hair. Finally his hands wavered down to her shoulders and he twisted a lock gently before leaning in to kiss her forehead quickly. “Just want you to be happy, sugar. You’re a good wife.” It still felt strange to call her that. The wolf moved to pick up beginning of dinner that she had started and cleaned the kitchen briefly. “Do you want to wash up before we go?” He asked her the question over his shoulder as he headed towards the bedroom, unbuttoning his shirt as he walked. The clothes Andre wore to his classes were slightly more uptight than the ones he wore while he relaxed. Once in the bedroom he tossed his shirt onto the bed and slid his belt off, dropping it behind him. If they were going to the bar he didn’t care to be caught in his all black nice clothes. They would stink like cigars and booze. So he changed, taking his time to walk around in their bedroom in his boxers before switching into some jeans and a black tee shirt. It was as fancy as he would get – they were only going to a bar. Things would get interesting if Addie decided to try a drink rather than her usual water.

But she did worry about it. She was brought up to please others, especially because of her mixed breeding she had to try even harder. Specifically to men, they above women she was supposed to make sure she behaved correctly, so to have one of her professors, a man with power over her yell at her in front of other people made her feel absolutely worthless. Whatever she did she wanted to correct, but she was still clueless exactly what it had been she messed up. Back home she was to confront her mistakes and correct them, no matter how embarrassing or hurtful it was. Here? It seemed the standard was to forget about what she did wrong, and that just didn’t bode well with her. She didn’t even want to go back to class, she was afraid the professor would just keep yelling at her about things she didn’t know.

She didn’t expect a smile from him, she knew by now they were as rare on him as they were on her. But she didn’t need a smile to know he was being nice to her and caring, she knew it in his words and the way he touched her hair. She did look a bit surprised when he kissed her forehead but it made her glow a little inside to have him show that sign of affection towards her. She blushed a little and looked down “I…would be better…if you would let me do laundry” She glanced at him with her small smile to show she was joking, and that was an absolute miracle. Adella making a joke? Making a playful statement? She hadn’t done that at all in the entire month. She looked over as he put the food away she had taken out then nodded “Yes, I’d like that” She stood there for a few moments to make sure she truly had calmed down before going up to the bedroom.

When she walked in she stopped and stared at him for a moment when she saw him in his boxers. She had done a good job so far avoiding Andre when he was unclothed or being able to turn around when she realized he was changing and get the heck away, but this time she had caught him in the process and she found herself admiring her husband for a few moments. No longer did he look like a bear to her but…well, a man. A very nice looking man. She blushed brightly when she realized she was watching him and she quickly looked away and scurried into the bathroom and closed the door behind her. After she regained some composure she washed her face with some cold water and brushed out her hair before, hesitantly, poking her head out of the bathroom to make sure he was now dressed and came out. She was still sticking to dresses but after two weeks she had stopped wearing her dresses from back home and opted for the few simple one’s Evelyn had bought her.

To Andre the problem was solved. He confronted the source, the issue wouldn’t happen again. As an alpha he didn’t beat around the bush or pussyfoot around things. He just got them done. His pack was one of the largest packs in Louisiana in the day, so there would be no babying things or taking time. It was done. Quick and over with, and now all he had to do was make his wife feel better. Which seemed like it would happen since she let it go and moved onto less tear-filled ideas.

Just as Andre began to think about where they would go or what they would order for dinner Adella’s comment brought him back to the present. The wolf quickly caught her smirk and looked wide-eyed for a second before smiling and laughing lightly. “If you insist…” He groaned a little and made a slightly playful expression at her, or rather an ‘Andre playful’ expression. It was the most laid back he had been with her thus far.

Just a hop, skip and a jump later he was upstairs and stripped down to his skivvies. He moved around the room comfortably, running a hand over his side to scratch idly while he looked through the closet for a pair of shoes he liked. Really there were only three pairs of shoes in there. Black fancy shoes, brown fancy shoes, and regular black non-tennis shoes (hell he didn’t even know what type to call them). Grabbing the non-fancy shoes he turned to face the bed and saw Adella standing there, her face soon turned red and he smiled as she ran into the bathroom. Maybe he didn’t entirely scare her after all. The wolf walked to the outside of the bathroom and rested his knuckles on the door with hardly a whisper of a knock. “You alright, Addie?”

Soon he finished dressing himself. What a big boy. He went downstairs and grabbed his keys and wallet, messing with a few things before Adella came down. She had finally stopped wearing her dresses from home and switched to whatever it was Evelyn packed for her, and for a brief moment in time Andre thanked the vampire. His eyes caught her legs as she walked down the stairs and he swallowed before stuffing his phone into his pocket. “Ready?” He asked, getting the door for his lovely wife and unlocking the truck from the porch.

She didn’t know what possessed her to crack a joke, but she did and for a moment she wished she hadn’t said anything in fear how he was going to react. But when he smiled and chuckled she relaxed and she nodded that she did insist, he needed to start letting her do what she was meant to do and that was to take care of him and his home. His playful expression was as good as hers was and so she understood it and continued to smile at him for a few moments. They were quite similar without them even noticing and although it had only been a month, she was learning more about her husband and the way he expressed himself. She was starting to catch onto the slight differences in his usual stoic face that gave away his mood or what he was trying to express.

When he caught her staring she was so absolutely embarrassed and fled to the safety of the bathroom. She didn’t know why she should be so shy about it, he was her husband, she was allowed to look at him right? But she still didn’t feel comfortable with it and felt like she was doing something she shouldn’t. When she heard him outside the door she nodded, but then realized he couldn’t see her and she made a face at herself “Y-yes” She squeaked as she turned on the sink to wash her face. Did he mind that she stared at him or did he not like to be stared at? She had no idea because she always made sure not to look at him for too long. But seeing him almost naked…the blushed strengthened on her cheeks and she stayed in the bathroom until it went away.

She didn’t catch him looking at her legs as she came downstairs but nodded to him as she moved over beside him “Where are we going?” She asked curiously as she walked outside. It finally hit her they would be going in the truck, and she quickly grew excited. She had only been in it the one time when she first came here, and now she got to be in it again. When she got into the truck she brightened like she did before, looking all around and daring to touch some of the buttons before Andre got in himself, then she kept her hands to herself. The ride over she was her typical quiet self, only speaking if he spoke to her and gazed out the window and watched the scenery outside. She was kind of eager to go somewhere new, but also nervous.

It was strange to have a husband and wife who were so awkward around each other. Were all other arranged marriages this awkward? Did Queen Elizabeth the first, or whatever royalty feel squeamish around their chosen significant others? Andre and Adella were a unique case, so they couldn’t be compared to any one else. Though Andre found it endearing when Adella seemed so shy. The way she hustled to the bathroom and the way her voice squeaked made him smile.

As Adella passed him and went out the door the wolf found himself gazing at her while she walked once again. The eager way she looked at the truck, or the change in her mood when she realized they would be driving made him laugh. “Do you want to learn to drive, Addie?” He asked as he walked around to the passenger side and opened her door for her. “I could teach you.” The wolf spoke playful and raised his brows. That would be a sight to see, but it would be good for her.

Once in the suburban and on the road he stretched and leaned back in his seat. His arm reached behind the passenger seat out of habit, and he glanced at his wife here and there. “We’re going to Big Louie’s, mon cheri. They have good food. You like chicken, yeah?” There was a playfulness to the wolf ever since her joke and he pecked his head like a chicken as he asked her. “Maybe you could order some cow.” The rest of the drive the old alpha made small talk with his new wife to get her mind off her awful day, and would touch her face or hair idly but then would lean back in his seat and put his hand on the wheel.

No more than twenty minutes later they were at the bar. It was an old log cabin style place with delicious smelling smoke coming from the back to roast and grill the food. Andre, as usual, opened the door for Adella and headed inside. Friday night left the bar packed and crowded with the young an old, but once inside there was a booth just far enough out of reach to not be bothered yet be able to watch most people in the bar. Professor Louvel smiled at the hostess who beamed at his arrival. ‘Hi Andre!’ she spoke cheerily, then glanced at Adella. ‘Booth for two tonight?’ It was obvious Andre was known by the regulars in the bar as he nodded and nonchalantly waved at the waitresses and a few patrons. Once they were to the booth, Andre touched the small of Adella’s back and ordered drinks for them from the waitress before he even sat down.

“I ordered you a sweet mixed drink. I think you’ll like it.” Hopefully she would like a strawberry daiquiri.

She looked taken aback when he talked about her learning to drive and she quickly shook her head in panic. Oh no! No, she couldn’t drive a big truck like that; she was way too scared too. She just liked to sit in them when they moved because they were amazing to her, but to learn how to operate one? She felt she would never be able to learn how to do that and was too intimidated to learn. She would probably just end up breaking it knowing her luck and then she’d make him mad. But she’d drive in a car any time and Andre’s car was even better, because it was called a truck and was big, kind of like him she supposed.

She watched his hand come across the passenger seat but unlike before she didn’t flinch. In a month she had come a long way with being more comfortable with him, because now she knew he wasn’t going to hit her. At least she hoped she was right in that assumption so far. She gave him a weird look when he pretended to be a chicken and then she giggled, a rare sound coming from her. She nodded “I like chicken” She said with laughter in her voice. When he said cow she smiled knowingly at him “It’s called beef” She said and giggled a bit more. She did forget about her bad day with him and wasn’t obsessing over it like she had been previously. This…Big Louie’s intrigued her; she had never been to a restaurant before and certainly never a bar.

When she got out of the car and looked over the place and thought, oh, it looks very nice. It was cute and quaint and it smelled really good. Her opinion changed once they actually went inside. All the people and noise and smells made her freeze and her eyes widened as she tried to take everything in. Culture shock. She immediately and for the first time glued herself to Andre’s side as she looked around and even brought a hand up to grip his wrist so he wouldn’t stray from her and she’d be alone among all this chaos. She swallowed hard and stiffened as they had to walk through the people to the booth. She sat down but instead of across from him she sat next to him and looked utterly freaked out. She nodded as he spoke but didn’t process what he was saying as she looked around the bar.

Later down the road Andre would work on teaching Adella to drive. After he made her more comfortable at home. They had to start with baby steps. Maybe he could get her to pick out a new paint color for their bedroom? Maybe he could take her furniture shopping, or to some place to pick out decorations. That would be a good first step in getting her to feel comfortable… right? All women liked to decorate. It was only a matter of time before he cracked Addie’s shell.

The playfulness didn’t cease until they were outside the restaurant and others were around. It was a trait of the wolf’s to be more stoic, and once they were in public his expression changed to something more sober. He felt the change in Adella as soon as they walked into the bar and he put his arm around her to make her feel safe. Her tiny arm on him caught him off guard, but he liked it. He just didn’t like how stiff she got in the crowd. There, there, little Addie. They’d be safe in the booth soon.

Rather than get uncomfortable or turn into a grouch that she sat next to him he smiled and put his arm around her shoulders. The expression on her face as she watched the people in the bar was priceless. “Do you want to switch spots?” He leaned in closer to her ear to ask, then kissed her cheek affectionately. With his free hand he grabbed the menu and opened it up. There were a few pictures of food in it, but not everything was shown. “What do you want to eat tonight, sugar? Pizza bites, mozzerella sticks, buffalo wings?” He named a few here and there, then would show her on the menu what he thought she might like. Soon the waitress brought their drinks. A big pink strawberry daiquiri for her, and a tall glass of beer for him, and almost as soon as it was set down Andre lifted his glass to take a drink. Hell, it had been a long week for him, too.

'Were you guys ready to order, Andre?' The cute redheaded waitress asked in english with a perky voice.

"We're still lookin', honey." The waitress nodded and walked off to her next table, leaving the two 'love birds' alone again.

Adella wasn’t sure what she had been expecting of this place, but certainly not all of this. Walking around campus frightened her enough with all the people and hustle and bustle and action going on around her, but this? She had never experienced this. Her village had been quiet, only on certain celebrations was there music and dancing but it was out in the open woods, not enclosed in a small space. Normally when Andre touched her she grew a bit uncomfortable and shy, but now it was very welcome. His arm around her made her feel secure and a bit separated from the madness around her. Right now he was her rock, and she intended to stay very close to him.

She shook her head to his suggestion because she didn’t want to move, she was fine where she was…well…as fine as she was going to be. When he kissed her cheek she blushed and looked over at him, giving him a tiny and very terrified smile. She glanced around the bar a bit more but then looked to him then the menu as he read some things out loud…all things that were as foreign to her as this bar. She looked to the pictures but did not see anything recognizable and she pursed her lips, looking at the words but that was useless, she couldn’t read English even if she could read period to begin with. After she floundered for a few moments she looked to him clueless “What do you think I should eat?”

When the drinks were brought she immediately liked the color of her drink, but wondered what it was. She carefully brought it over and tried it, liking the taste though she made a bit of a face at the alcohol aftertaste. It was ok, she probably wouldn’t have drank it normally but he had ordered it for her and it was obvious drinking alcohol was somehow important to him so she didn’t want to refuse the drink. She took another drink then sat back “It is good” She murmured, shifting some and looking over to watch the people. Why were they so loud and boisterous?

The wolf within him could sense how uncomfortable Adella was. It made him uneasy and eager to make her relax, but he kept a calm front. There were people of all types around the bar but it was far from a party scene. There was no one doing shots. Mostly people just leaning around the bar and chatting up one another. He could hear conversations about how work sucked, wives sucked, or how great things were. It was simply a little crowded, but nothing the wolf wasn’t used to. He realized it would take longer than a month to get Adella out of the quiet country life she was used to and onto bigger and more exciting things. This may have been too big of a step. Oops.

For a few moments the lycan tossed around the idea of asking her if she wanted to leave. Should he give up and offer to bring her home, or stick it out and get through the night? If they went home it would be giving up, and the old Andre was never one to do such a thing. Adella brought out traits he thought were long forgotten; feelings he thought were long dead. Giving her a gentle squeeze, he decided not to ask her if she wanted to leave. She was a big girl, she could speak for herself if it was what she really wanted.

“You might like the BBQ chicken sandwich.” It was simple enough that it wouldn’t completely shock her taste buds – or so he thought. There were plenty of spicy foods that the bar had that drew the Cajun French man in like a cartoon to a freshly made pie. Honestly, the firey Cajun chicken they offered could use a little more spice, but it was close enough. “Or a bacon cheeseburger.” He offered, smirking at himself as he unconsciously offered to get her plump.

The face she made at the drink made Andre laugh. “Do you really like it, Addie? I’ll order you something different if you don’t.” Why not try some tequila? Each and every time Andre spoke he leaned in near her, his voice just low enough for only her to hear. Even in a public place he kept her private and to himself. The only time that behavior was interrupted was when the waitress came to take their order. She smiled and eyed Adella, but gladly took Andre's order when he told her what his wife would like but already knew what Mr. Louvel would enjoy. They always knew.

She did want to leave, she would have preferred to leave. She liked quiet and calm, this environment she had never been in before and to her it was equal to a rave. There were too many sounds of people talking, laughing, moving around and dishes clanking. The smell of liquor in the air was too much for her overly sensitive senses and she was feeling a bit claustrophobic. But she wouldn’t ask to leave, he wanted to come here and share this with her and she wasn’t going to make him leave because she knew that would probably upset or at least disappoint him. No shed sit all but clung to his side and endure this until he wanted to leave. If these were the things her husband enjoyed then she would have to learn to like it too.

She shrugged to ether option, not really knowing what was best. She thought beef was a little heavier than chicken but the look she gave him told him she was obviously leaving it up to him to what to order her. Back home she usually ate vegetables and…well vegetables, meat was a rare treat but it seemed here in America everyone ate meat all the time in everything. She couldn’t imagine eating so much meat, but maybe that was how men got so big like Andre did.

She looked a little sheepish when he seemed to realize she didn’t a hundred percent like the drink. Not like she hated it, but it was a bit…funky “No, no, I like it” She insisted however and took another sip, this time forcing her face to not look sour at the after taste. Every time he leaned in she felt fluttery in her stomach and she would duck her gaze but glance at him shyly. When the waitress came she slowly took a few more sips of her drink, watching the waitress as she eyed her then quickly looked away and fiddled with the silverware on the table.

Wives were meant to please their husbands, and Adella was most certainly trained for that. She only seemed to want to make him happy and avoided doing things that would even ruffle his feathers in the slightest. It made the wolf wonder what she actually enjoyed. What was underneath that pixie and peachy exterior? After ordering for the two of them and watching the expression she made at each sip of her drink he shifted took a big gulp of his own then began to investigate.

“You try hard to make me happy, Addie… Who are you really? What makes you tick?” Again the wolf took another sip, making the conversation easier. He had been dying to ask and know but hadn’t found the right time. The right time was halfway into his beer. “Are you secretly an angry person?” He asked with a smile.

Not long after he started to prod at what lay beneath the surface a few men from the bar came to their table. They were very smiley men who greeted Andre as though they knew him well. ‘Andre Louvel! How the hell are ya?’ He smiled and made idle chat with them, then gave Adella’s waist a squeeze. “This is my wife, Adella. Adella, these are Jack and Steve McCarthy.” He spoke a little slower when addressing Addie, hoping she may pick up a word or two or at least nod like she knew what he was saying. Poor girl. It would be some time before he could show her off in a crowd without her being utterly clueless. ‘Pleasure to meet you, Adella!’ the men said in near unison then extended their hands one at a time to greet her. Andre watched curiously, wondering how Addie would react before piping in. “She’s just a bit shy. You have to take it easy on her, Steve.”

She gave him a surprised look “It is my duty to make you happy” And really, she didn’t mind it, it wasn’t like some chore for her. He didn’t demand things from her or make her life difficult, so it came easy to her to try and make sure he was always pleased with the things she did and never angered him. In truth she never liked to anger anyone, she liked when people were happy with her because she made them happy. His questions boggled her mind and she wasn’t sure how to answer them and she shook her head “I do not like anger” She told him innocently, wondering exactly what it was he was looking for.

She looked to the men as they came over and pressed herself more against Andre unsurely, her eyes quickly looking between each man. The way they greeted Andre it was obvious he knew them and they were friends, but still she was timid. She sat very still and very quiet as they talked back and forth and when Andre seemed to address her she looked to him then the men in a bit of confusion. When they extended their hands she stared at them blankly before looking to Andre for help, wondering what they were doing. She didn’t get handshakes, it meant touching someone she didn’t know and it made her uneasy but she game them a small little smile and nodded her head.

It was strange. For being from such an old pack Andre had fairly new age ideas of what a marriage should be. She didn’t have to keep him happy. Hell, she could have run away from home or have been a complete bitch for what she had to go through. He lucked out with her being so laid back. “I wish you would relax. I want to know the real you, not the wife you’re trying so hard to be.”

But before the conversation could carry on further the men appeared. It wasn’t like Andre wanted to talk about feelings and all that bullshit, but he was more preoccupied with getting his wife to drop the act. She had to ‘act human’ sometimes (so to speak). She had to make mistakes, swear, or even fart at some point! He’d choose not to think about the last part.

When Addie didn’t shake the pair’s hands they slowly dropped them, glancing to Andre who kept his expression mute. Some people didn’t enjoy touching. Not everyone was a body language freak. He gave them a short, forced smile and made idle chit chat before they took the hint and departed. ‘We’ll catch up when you’re not with the Mrs., Andre!’ and with that they were on their way.

As their backs turned Andre leaned into Addie and pressed his nose near her ear. “They said ‘What a lovely wife you have.’” Then he leaned back. The waitress appeared almost immediately after and set mozzarella sticks on their table as an appetizer. ‘Figured you’d want your usual.’ With that she spun around and only looked back over her shoulder to smile at him once. The wolf reached for one and dipped it in the red sauce.

“Have you made any new friends yet?” He asked, prodding at a different route to get to know the real fae.

He didn’t want her to behave like a wife? Well then…how was she supposed to behave? “I’ve never been myself” She told him meekly before the men arrived. It was true; she had never really just been herself. Infront of the people of her village she was always withdrawn and doing everything possible to appear friendly and nonthreatening, in front of her step-father she did backflips to make him like her to no avail and her mother she was always being bright and cheery around to keep her happy. Adella never had a chance since a child to allow her own personality to shine and didn’t even know where to begin with to do that.

She had a feeling maybe she had done something wrong by the expressions on their faces and she frowned some and looked down to her lap and just fiddled with her dress while they talked. She had been so against learning English from the start but now she realized she should have been trying harder. Since she and Andre always spoke French she had forgotten the man’s first language was English and that he spoke to everyone but her in English. If she had tried better to learn maybe she’d be able to speak to his friends better and understand them and wouldn’t be sitting there clueless wondering what the men thought of her; probably negative things.

She blushed when the men left and he told her what they allegedly said about her. She turned to look at him and smiled before she looked at the food as it was placed before them. Immediately it smelled good and she learned forward to look at it, but she caught the waitress glancing back to smile at him. She looked between them for a moment before back to him before nodding “I have…I met a girl named Tristian, and a boy named Kythen. They are both very nice” She picked up one of the mozzarella sticks and bit into it….then looked surprised when the cheese just, kept going. She froze and looked weirded out, wondering what she was supposed to do. She tried to pull but the cheese kept coming and she felt utterly embarrassed.

It didn’t settle right with Andre that Adella never had the chance to be herself. To him it was like a slave, but even slaves had free moments to themselves. Whether it be before they say their prayers at night or the short moments in the morning before their master woke up, they still had time for their own thoughts. What sort of life had the fae tribe, or whatever it was they wanted to be called, made her live before?

Never the social butterfly the wolf was glad when the men were gone. Sure, it was nice to talk to people when he was here drinking alone – but for the most part he avoided them on a regular basis. Things may have been different when he had too much to drink and the women were too tight about their legs, but life was different now. He had a wife. He had responsibility and an image to uphold to her.

The wolf’s ears perked up when he heard she had met a boy. Little Ms. Innocent could hardly be considered untrustworthy, but it still interested Andre. “Where did you meet them?” Charming boys were never considered ‘nice’. Women didn’t want nice. That’s why Andre had been single so long, right? Alright, so maybe he wouldn’t have been considered nice either.

“You have plenty of time to find yourself, Adella.” He spoke slowly, watching her struggle with the cheese and a smile took over his normally stern face. So much for deep and serious conversation. “Try this.” With that he pushed the delicious red dip towards her.

“I met Tristian in one of my classes. She is very nice and knows some French. I met Kythen at the stables, he knows some French too, less than Tristian but he was nice too. He has a horse named Mystique, she was beautiful and offered for me to ride her but…I was too afraid too, but he said he might teach me” Her face had brightened as she spoke, because she had been thinking about the horses and the fact she had met people who she could speak too without needing English all the time. But then she realized she had been talking about going riding with a man that was not her husband and she quickly frowned and looked to Andre uncertainty “I mean…he only asked. I of course would never go if you didn’t want me too” That was stupid of her…how could she say that Kythen would teach her and she would go off with him without asking her husband first?

She finally managed to cut the cheese off and chewed, her eyes lighted up “It is just cheese and bread…but it tastes very good” She had to hand it to America…they had amazing food. First chocolate, now these cheese things. She dipped the leftover of her mozzarella stick in the sauce, and she looked even more excited “It tastes better!” She exclaimed “What are these called?” Needless to say, Adella chowed down on those mozzarella sticks. As she ate them she looked to him “So…this is where you come often to see friends?” She asked curiously “It is...nice” She didn’t know how to talk about herself so, better to talk about him.

Was it normal in his situation to want to snort at Kythen’s name? There was nothing normal about their situation, but the wolf still felt disdain when his wife spoke of another man. He wrote it off as phantom jealousy. It wasn’t real. He was just too set in his ways as a protective and dominant male. It couldn’t be real, he didn’t have feelings for her… right?

“How is your English fairing?” If he didn’t speak much French and she didn’t speak much English then nothing serious could happen. Nothing else would eer happen if she always stayed so shy. It was hard for him, but good for him when it came to other people. “Of course. You can do whatever you like, Adella.” Take riding lessons from a man who hardly spoke her language? Eh, if it made her happy.

“Deep fried. Everything tastes better deep fried.” Pickles, meats, even vegetables tasted better deep fried. Andre was from the south. He knew good (horrible for you) food. If he had been a human man he would have croaked by the age of thirty from a stroke or heart attack, but it would have been well earned. The next thing he needed to teach Adella was how to make a good Jambalaya. Then she would be one major step closer to being the perfect wife.

The wolf smiled and laughed gently. “Not exactly friends… I come here to relax and unwind.” He went there to comfort himself with a taste of his old life, old addictions. Some may have said he was just teasing himself, but it brought the lycan comfort now and again. Within a few minutes their food was delivered and set down in front of them.

Need anything else? Another drink?’ The wolf shook his head, but the waitress then looked to Adella. ‘Sweetheart, you hardly touched your drink. Do you want something else?’ Andre naturally translated it for her. “Do you want something else to drink?” But soon changed his mind. “How about some water and two Coke’s.” With that she turned and bounced back off into the crowd, leaving them to their steaming plates of delicious food.

While he felt disdain hearing about Kythen, Adella felt disdain hearing about English. She really just had a complete mental block on it, but she was starting to see how important it was to learn, even though she was totally against it “Gewd” She looked proud of herself for that one word…it was one of the few she knew and even used appropriately. She smiled happily and it was the brightest she had looked thus far when he told her she could. She was very excited to learn how to ride horses…at least, now. Once she actually got to doing it she would be scared and not want too, but for now it was a perfect fantasy scenario in her head of her horseback riding. “Tank yew” But he had said whatever she liked…somehow she couldn’t believe that.

“Ep…freed?” She tried to mimic the word in a confused manner. What was that? She had never heard of deep fried but whatever it was, it was very very good and it was a miracle to see she finished off the mozzarella sticks like a pro, since she usually ate like a little bird. When he corrected why he came to this place, her eyes betrayed her true feelings as she looked at him like he was crazy. Here to relax? With all the people around and talking and music and smells of food? This was relaxing to him? To her relaxing was sitting out in the woods listening to the wind and birds calling in the tree’s and the sound of a river off in the distance. Inside this room with all the hustle and bustle…she just didn’t see it the way he obviously did.

When the food came she was surprised to see more and she instantly wondered if this too was deep fried. As she was staring and examining the food she didn’t notice the waitress was directing anything to her, so she quickly looked to Andre when he spoke to her. “Oh” She forgot about the drink, that’s right and she quickly shook her head and picked up the drink and took a bit gulp of it through the straw. She still tasted an after taste but this time it wasn’t so bad, she just didn’t want to disappoint him about the drink he had ordered for her. She heard him order water and felt relieved; she loved water. “So…what is this? Is this also…ep…freed?”

It surprised the wolf to hear the English word. He thought it would go unnoticed when she switched from French to English, but her accent was so strong and the expression on her face was so proud it was hard to ignore it. He smiled warmly at her. “Good.” His accent caked the English word, but at least it was one less French piece. The more English she learned the more comfortable she would be here. That had to be the case. What else could he do to make her more comfortable?

“Cooked in grease or something.” He responded calmly, trying to avoid the word ‘fat’ so she wouldn’t stop eating the food she obviously enjoyed. What she didn’t know couldn’t hurt her when it came to food. “A lot of things are cooked that way here.” That’s why America was so beefy. “We love food. It’s why you see so many people like that.” He nodded to a big, rolly man at the bar taking a bite out of some chicken wings and guzzling his beer. “Would you have been disappointed if I looked like that when we got married?” The wolf smirked, then touched at her side playfully before eating more cheese.

He nearly finished his beer by the time dinner came along, but wouldn’t order another with Addie around. He wasn’t planning on getting shit faced the first time he took his wife out to a bar, but after the day she had he couldn’t blame her if she drank a few of the daiquiris.

Andre rearranged the food on the table, pushing the empty plate away and bringing her barbeque chicken sandwich and fries closer to her before snatching his own plate. A wolf got hungry between meals! Glancing at her with a smirk, he began eating his Cajun spiced food but kept the reins tight so as not to eat like the starved wolf he was. Just look at him, bones and all. Poor starving Andre.

“No.” He spoke and set down his food. “It’s barbequed. Probably cooked on a grill, like the one we have at home. The fries…well I don’t know how they cook them here.” If she knew he was feeding her so much deep fried food she might get upset at him later when learning how it was cooked, so he left out the fact that the fries were most likely cooked the same way as the mozzarella sticks. As he went to pick up his food once again the waitress sauntered by and set down their drinks to give Adella relief from her face-making pink drink.

She nodded “That is what I said” She said simply “Gewd” To her the way he said the word and the way she was saying the word was the same exact pronunciation. Back in her village fat wasn’t something anyone worried about, all fairies were naturally skinny and if he had said fat she wouldn’t have batted an eye. Back home people didn’t care about their weight or appearance like people here did, she wouldn’t have understood what it meant to get fat. When he pointed to the man she blinked then looked back to him “What is wrong with him?” Yes, she was he was large…but she didn’t see what was wrong with him being large like that. Was it bad here to be large? She had met trolls before, they were large. She then shook her head and looked at him innocently “Why would it have disappointed me?” He was large, a different kind of large but still large, and furry.

She quieted after that for she was greatly enjoying the food he had ordered her. She ate it quite daintily, she felt embarrassed in front of all these people and not the level of comfort she was starting to feel back home to eat in front of Andre. As she ate her food she forced herself to drink the fruity drink even though she really just didn’t like it but she kept drinking it anyway, forcing herself to tap big gulps through the straw before covering the odd taste with her food. With this strategic plan by the time she was done with her food she was done with the drink…and felt a little….odd. But she smiled through it and told him she really did like it, so then she got another one and drank that one two and found the second one wasn’t bad at all like the first one oddly enough so she ended up asking for a third one…after that third one, she doesn’t know what happened exactly.

The next thing she knew she blinked and they were in his car driving home. She felt lightheaded and….lightheaded. And weird, very weird, kind of like she was floating. Her stomach churned a bit but wasn’t horrific, she was able to grit her teeth and make the feeling pass but she avoided looking out the window like she usually did, it didn’t help the feeling in her stomach or her head. She then looked over at Andre and squinted some, watching him quietly before she leaned her head back against the seat and sunk more down into it. She then slowly crept a hand over to him and took his free hand not on the wheel, interlacing her hand with his as she gazed at him.
