John ‘Doctor’ Smith was not in the best of moods when Jack Harkness and Brian Kinney arrived on his doorstep with what appeared to be their latest in an endless line of conquests. Seconds later though, after one look at his friends’ faces; he knew there was something far more important going on than simply showing off. He just he never expected the bombshell Jack dropped on him without warning.
“What do you know about an alpha that calls himself the Master?”
The Doctor swallowed hard as a tiny fission of fear ran the length of his spine. “I think the four of you better come in.”
The glare that had been on Cynthia’s face at the interruption of her family night was quickly replaced with pure worry as she saw how pale her mate looked. “John?” she asked and the concern lacing her voice drew Jenny and Daphne to appear behind her.
“Daddy? What’s wrong?” Jenny asked reaching for her mate’s hand; something was telling her that whatever had happened, it was going to be bad.
The plate fell from Cynthia’s limp hand as her husband uttered four little words that filled her with terror:
“The Master is back.”
A frightened whimper tore itself from Jenny’s throat as she stumbled back and if it wasn’t for Daphne’s arms around her she would have fallen to the floor. Instead she curled into her mate's protective hold, grateful for the strength and safety Daphne offered.
It pained Ianto's heart to see so much fear in someone who looked so young and it made things even worse to know that it was his fault. "We should have never come here." Ianto wasn't aware that he had spoken out loud or that he was trying to pull away until Jack growled warningly and tugged him back against the alpha's side.
John Smith just shook his head and a deep frown marred his face. "No, young man, you did the right thing seeking out Jack and Jack, it was very wise for you to bring them here." John rolled his eyes with fond amusement as Jack beamed with pride and pleasure before he turned serious again. "The Master is a very dangerous man, one who will not stop at anything until he gets what he wants. I would keep your young mate very close," he warned Jack.
Jack's eyes flashed amber as he wrapped an arm around Ianto's waist, tugging his mate even tighter against his body. "I plan to Doc, I plan to." He had waited far too long to find Ianto and there was no way he was giving his Welshman up without a fight to the death.
"Sir, if you know the Master so well, can you tell us why he and his creepy little protégée, Ethan, are so obsessed with Ianto and me?" Justin was hoping against hope that John could provide some much needed answers.
John and Cynthia exchanged a knowing glance before the blond woman raised her eyebrow in disbelief at the two other alphas in the room. "Are you two telling me that you honestly don't know what you’ve got here?" Her voice rose. “You really don’t know?”
"Know what?" Brian asked his voice had taken on a dangerous tone.
Suddenly remembering her manners, Cynthia ushered the group out of the entryway and into the living room. Her husband stayed behind long enough to double check the locks on the door and to peek out the windows into the darkness. He entered the lounge in time to hear Cynthia say, “…is her mate, Daphne.”
Cynthia turned in her seat as John walked in. “Just making introductions; this…” she nodded toward Jack and the young man cradled against his side, “is Ianto Jones, and the man with Brian is Justin Taylor.”
John obligingly shook hands before motioning for everyone to take a seat, noting that only Jenny and Daphne chose to sit and they squeezed themselves into the armchair together. “Does anyone want a coffee?”
“Fuck the coffee!” Brian managed to bellow the three words without raising his voice. “I wanna know what’s going on with my mate!”
Justin laid a calming hand on Brian’s arm. “Relax, honey, it’s going to be all right. Let her tell us the story, okay?”
Surprisingly, Brian nodded and kissed the side of Justin’s head. “Okay,” he said softly before looking at Cynthia expectantly.
The blond woman shared a quick glance with her husband before saying, “Ianto and Justin, you are both omegas, which means you have a rare genetic gift that enables you to carry children, just like a woman. That’s why the Master wants you.” She sat back and let her news sink in; she could tell she’d dropped a true bombshell by the stunned looks Jack and Brian were both wearing, and by the amused looks of disbelief on their mates’ faces.
John could tell when Ianto’s amusement turned to acceptance by the way all the blood drained from his face. “I take it he met you first, Ianto?" he the pale-looking young Welshman. "I think it would be best if we sat down as well, Jack; your young man looks a little shaky.”
Jack immediately lead his trembling mate to the nearest chair and sat down in it, pulling Ianto down into his lap. Normally Ianto would have protested quite firmly against such familiarity with a man he’d only known for two hours; instead, he allowed Jack to wrap his arms around him and cradle him against his broad chest. He even smiled softly as Jack pressed a tender kiss to his hair. If weren’t such a serious situation John would have been chuckling at how clearly smitten Jack already was with his young Welsh mate.
“Well, Sunshine, shall we?” Brian raised an eyebrow as he smirked down at the blond who, much to his amusement, had stuck close to him. In fact, when they had started talking about the Master, Brian was sure that the blond was trying to tuck himself fully into his body. Not that Brian minded, he rather liked the feeling of Justin’s petite body pressed against his; it gave him all kind of ideas of what they could do together, later.
What he did mind was the tremors of fear that racked slight Justin’s frame at the mention of the Master and Ethan. It rubbed him the wrong way to see another shifter having such an effect, even a negative effect, on his mate. ‘I’m the only one who makes my mate tremble! Me!’ his wolf snarled viciously.
Justin's brows furrowed together at the new nickname that Brian had just graced him with. 'Sunshine, huh? Well at least it's better than twat, but I wonder if he’ll ever call me by my name or would that be too much to ask for.' Justin's eyes narrowed as he caught sight of the smirk on the handsome brunet's face and he flushed slightly before huffing and giving Brian his own glare before going to sit near Ianto and Jack.
The smirk of pleasure on Brian's face grew as Justin glared at him once more and turned his back on him. The alpha had a feeling his sweet little blond was going to be quite the feisty mate, one that he was really going to enjoy taming. 'But not too tame; I want to see that fire whenever I decide to take him.'
Despite the seriousness of the situation Cynthia couldn’t help but roll her eyes with fond amusement as she saw the heat building in her alpha’s eyes as he watched her fellow blond pretend to ignore Brian. A small smile appeared on her lips as Brian lounge nonchalantly against the mantel, his eyes drinking in the view of his newest and undoubtedly last prey. Cynthia was quite pleased by the amount of spirit Justin was showing; it was easy to see that he wasn’t going to be the pushover Brian’s past romantic encounters had been. 'It's about damn time he found his mate and I think that Justin can give him a proper run for his money or die trying! Either way, I am going to enjoy the show.’
Whispered conversation from the wing chair drifted to Cynthia’s ear and she turned towards the sounds. Immediately she saw that Jenny was still quite shaken by her father’s news and that she was barely holding her emotions in check. Over Jenny’s shoulder, Daphne caught Cynthia’s eye and she nodded toward the door. Realising that her daughter needed a moment alone with Daphne, Cynthia nodded back and stood up, moving to join Brian at the fireplace.
A grateful sigh escaped Jenny's lips as she sank deeper into her mate's hold but she knew that Daphne was worried. "Are you all right?" Jenny smiled; no matter the situation, somehow Daphne's questions were always right on time.
Shifting in Daphne's arms, Jenny rested her head on the brunette's shoulder. "I'll be okay. He never wanted me as a mate, you know, he only went after me as a way to hurt my father." Despite her words Jenny couldn't help but shiver as she recalled the pure fear that had never truly left her after being held as the Master's prisoner when she was a little girl. He was a dark and twisted soul and no matter how much time had passed or how old she had gotten there were some monsters you never learned to not be afraid of and the Master was one of them.
"It's okay to be afraid of him, kitten; no one will think of you or see you as weak. I know I don't," Daphne whispered soothingly as she rubbed comforting circles on her mate’s back. She wanted Jenny to know that it was okay to lean on her for comfort and that she didn't have to be strong all the time.
A tender kiss on her lips brought Daphne out of her thoughts as she stared into Jenny's warm brown eyes. "You're the only one I can allow myself to be afraid with,” the blond admitted softly.
Daphne knew that was the strongest testament to their bond when Jenny could admit something that made her feel weak. An idea snuck in and Daphne didn't think that the others would mind. "What do you say we head home? I think your dad can explain the kind of man the Master is without us here."
Grateful beyond measure that she had a mate who understood her so well, Jenny squeezed Daphne in relief, "Yeah, I think you're right."
John glanced at his mate; with their enhanced senses, the shifters had easily heard the girls’ conversation, although they carefully pretended they hadn’t, and they were all grateful that Jenny wouldn't be around for the next part of the conversation. They all knew that it would drag out painful memories of her past for the young wolf. "Why don't you go say goodnight to the girls and walk them out, Cynthia, and I'll catch them up on the Master."
Nodding her head and grateful that she wouldn't have to re-live one of the most horrible moments of her life, Cynthia grasped the chance to make her escape and took it.
The instant Cynthia and the girls were out of earshot, Jack pounced. "So just who is the Master?" He wanted – no, he needed – to know who was stalking his mate, because he couldn’t protect him if he didn’t know who the enemy was.
Suddenly looking far older than he normally appeared, John Smith sighed as memories of past encounters with his old enemy came rushing back to play themselves out before his eyes. "The Master, or as some know him, Harold Saxon, or as I knew him, Koschei, he's from the oldest family line, the first shifters ever created. He has a strong almost psychotic desire to keep the shifter line pure but as time went on and more and more shifters found their mates in regular humans the blood of the shifters became diluted. For centuries he's searched for those with the strongest bloodlines because he knows he won't find any purebloods anymore."
John rubbed his hand up and down his face; this was the hard part. "Long before I met any of you, Koschei and I were friends, in fact we were a little more than friends; we were lovers on and off throughout the centuries. For a time I even considered becoming his mate but something always kept me from taking that next step, and I think it was the darkness that I always saw in his eyes that stopped me from accepting his offer. He never forgave me for turning him down or for falling in love with Cynthia. He refused to accept that I’d found my true life mate in her. He disappeared immediately after our mating ceremony and when there were no reports of him anywhere for several decades, I guess we got complacent. I honestly thought that after seeing us commit the rest of our lives to one another that he’d finally gotten over his pursuit of me. Then, when Jenny was five years old, the Master kidnapped her. He broke into our home in the early hours of the morning and stole her from her crib."
Worried gasps fell from Ianto and Justin's mouths as Jack and Brian's let out matching growls of pure outrage. It was absolutely forbidden for any shifter to go after a child. Sensing the growing rage in Jack, Ianto cuddled into Jack's chest, offering what little comfort he could while between their bodies and hidden from everyone else Ianto linked his hand with Jack's. A fire like he’d never known filled Jack's veins as Ianto's hand slipped into his and it took all his willpower to keep his wolf from dragging Ianto down to the floor and snog him senseless.
Fortunately, Jack was made of sterner stuff; he didn't think that would go over too well, not with the Doctor – it was his carpet, after all, and definitely not with Ianto. He had a feeling that his mate was quite shy when it came to matters of the flesh and the last thing he wanted was to embarrass his mate before they’d gotten to know one another. 'But still this is progress,' his inner wolf cheered loudly and did an embarrassing happy dance, one that Jack was so glad no one could see. Sometimes the things that went on in his own mind actually scared even him.
The testosterone-fuelled anger filling the room was a little overwhelming for Justin and against his will he found himself shifting closer to Brian. He found himself unable to deny the part of him that was telling him to sooth and comfort this man no matter how annoying he was. On the other hand, Justin was determined to ignore the little voice in the back of his head that that kept telling Brian's low growl was extremely hot. 'I am not going to jump the man!' he firmly told the half of him that wanted to do just that and soon.
As Justin shifted closer to him, the predator in Brian came fully awake as he smelt the sudden spike in Justin's desire and the alpha knew it was just a matter of time before they came together for the first time. As the blond pressed his body right beside his in a clear sign of comfort Brian couldn't help but drag his eyes over his young mate; he knew it was only a matter of time till Justin realised that as well. But until he did Brian would enjoy utilizing his supreme skills in seduction and by the time he was done Justin would be begging to be taken by him, again and again and again…
As if sensing the direction of the older man’s thoughts Justin glared at Brian out of the corner of his eye and was surprised to see a fairly innocent expression on the man's face. Justin's guard went up; he may have only known the handsome alpha for a few hours but he knew instinctively that innocent and Brian Kinney did not belong in the same thought. It just felt wrong for Justin to even think it, like putting salt in a cup of Ianto’s coffee before drinking it. No, Brian was a hunter and a predator and instinct told Justin he was his newest prey and in the back of his mind Justin started wondering just how long he would be able to resist the temptations offered by the walking sex god.
Ianto cleared his throat. The air in the room was actually crackling with sexual tension and it wasn’t just between himself and Jack; the connection between Brian and Justin was alive and sparking with electricity. There were still too many questions to be asked and answers to be given before anyone could surrender to their desires. He cleared his throat again, a little louder this time, and waiting until all eyes were on him. "So how does this all tie back to Justin and myself?"
John studied the two young men and the two alphas who had staked their claims on them. "If I'm right, you two are from the ancient and original lines which makes your bloodline purer and stronger than almost anyone else’s. I’d also say that it’s what has gifted you with the ability to bear children. Since you didn’t know that you were omegas, I’d guess that you don’t realise that such a pregnancy can only happen with your true life mate." John actually took a quick step backwards when he saw Ianto and Justin go pale with shock while a murderous glint appeared in the eyes of their mates. He floundered around for a way to diffuse the volatile situation, knowing that it wouldn’t do any good if the two alphas sought out the Master in their current mind set. Governed by their hormones as they were, they would be no match for the dangerous machinations of an insane alpha like Koschei.
"But how does Ethan factor into all of this?" Justin wanted to know about the man who’d had made his life a living nightmare for the past year. "Is he also an alpha?"
A dangerous glint entered Brian's eyes and his fists clenched at his sides; he too wanted to know how his Justin's stalker fit into all of this. More importantly his wolf wanted to know where the deviant could be found so he could hunt him down and make it perfectly clear exactly what would happen to him if he ever came within an inch of Justin again.
“No,” John shook his head decisively. "There is no way that Koschei would ever share power with another alpha. I have a feeling that this Ethan is nothing more than a beta, a weak-willed nobody that Koschei can control. Did you know Ethan before you met either Ianto or the Master?"
Slowly Justin nodded his head. "Yeah, I did; we went to the same school although he was a couple of years ahead of me. A few months before I met Ianto, Ethan had been following me around school, calling me his muse. At first I admit that I was a little flattered, you know, the attentions of an upperclassman and such, but when he wouldn't take no for answer and began showing up everywhere I went… You know he actually started spending the night outside my house, just sitting in his car, and once I swear he was up in a tree spying on me through my bedroom window!
“I decided to take action but everyone I talked to said there was nothing they could do. The school counselor said I should just avoid on campus and ignore him elsewhere, and according to the way the stalking laws are written, Ethan hadn’t done anything wrong. He hadn’t threatened me, he hadn’t stolen or vandalised anything of mine and until he did, the police said their hands were tied.”
If Ethan had been there he would have been charred to a cinder given the fire burning in Brian’s eyes. Jack was sure that the only thing keeping Mt. Kinney from erupting was the blond tucked against his side.
"That would have been due to Koschei’s influence. The Master has a gift for ruling through intimidation; he doesn’t need to actually do anything to you. All he needs is for you to believe he’ll do something to have power over you.” John sighed. “He is no doubt using Ethan's obsession with you, Justin, as the key to keeping Ethan under his thumb. Plus, having him keep an eye on Justin means Ethan has access to Ianto’s activities as well and therefore can report back to him. Ethan sounds like he’s too weak-minded to think for himself and would have no choice but to obey him. I think Ethan will find that when he is of no more use to him the Master will do away with him.”
John paused to catch his breath and to let his words sink in for a moment before continuing. “It was smart of Jack and Brian to bring you two here for help but it won’t take the Master long to track you down; he has an excellent network of spies, even on Liberty Avenue. So, for your own safety, I believe it’s in your best interest to stick as close as possible to Jack and Brian,” John warned them. “As your mates they can and will protect you better than anyone else I know.”
True to their inner nature, purely wolfish grins appeared on Jack and Brian’s faces as they gazed at the two young when who would soon be their mates for life. “Oh don’t worry, Doc; we’ll take good care of them,” Jack practically purred out his words as he undressed Ianto with his eyes. His blatant perusal caused the young man to blush a very dark red, which had Jack making the mental note of, ‘Red is so his colour! I absolutely have to have red silk sheets for the bed when I finally take my gorgeous Welshman.’ He was going to make their first night together the most memorable in Ianto’s life.
Brian’s hungry gaze all but devoured Justin as he drawled out, “Well, Sunshine, it looks like we’ll be living together.”
Justin sputtered indignantly before glaring daggers at Brian. “I don’t think so, Mr Kinney. There was no mention in John’s speech of us having to live together. I know, I listened.”
“How else do you expect me to protect you, Sunshine? You’re living with me and that’s final.” Never did Brian think that he would ever utter those words to anyone but then Justin wasn’t just anyone, was he. No, Justin was his mate and the wolf in him demanded that as such, he be taken to their den and never allowed to leave. But Brian had to admit that he did rather enjoy the fire that burned in his blond’s baby blue eyes.
“Ianto and I have been doing a good job of protecting ourselves for this long, thank you very much. We don’t need you to hold our hands!” Justin growled and shot to his feet.
Growling deep in his throat Brian climbed to his feet, anger pouring off him in waves, but at the same time he was very turned on by the defiance and independence his feisty mate was showing. “You’re mine, Sunshine, and the faster you realise that the better we’ll all be.”
“I am not yours!” Justin growled just as fiercely as Brian.
Before Justin knew what was happening Brian had his arms wrapped around his waist and was pulling him flush against his body; try as he might to resist, Justin found himself shivering as he felt Brian’s body pressed firmly against his own. Despite the difference in their height Justin fit perfectly against Brian’s taller frame and the other man took advantage of this and whispered hotly in Justin’s ear, “Your mouth may say no but your body screams yes, yes, YES! You want me to take you, to make you mine, to take you in my bed or anywhere else I want.” Brian’s words earned him a violent shiver from the young man in his arms. “I am going to show you pleasure unlike any you've ever known before."
Justin shuddered at the pure erotic promise in Brian's voice and wondered again just how long he would be to resist this man; he was absolute perfection wrapped in pure sin and the idea of living with him was simply inviting temptation in. Forcing himself to tear his gaze off of those smoldering hazel eyes that seemed to change colours to match his mood, Justin turned a pleading look onto his friend.
Unfortunately, his friend wasn’t going to be of much help; Ianto wasn't fairing much better with Jack. The older man had crowded him back into a corner of the couch and he was using the weight of his body to hold Ianto there. His blue eyes hard and determined and he had a single finger pressed against the Welshman's lips. "I don't want to hear anything but ‘yes’ falling from the gorgeous lips." While his voice was soft, there was a steely tone behind it.
Watching the scenes playing out before him John hung his head with dismay; ‘How can two alpha males be so stupid when it comes to their own mates?’ It was clear to him that Ianto and Justin had survived for so long without protection because they had strong wills and good common sense. If Brian and John didn’t realise that truth soon, treating them like they were delicate flowers was only going to drive them away.
Ianto's blue eyes flashed with anger and with a burst of strength he didn’t even know he had, he pushed Jack back and off of him and climbed to his feet. "Thank you for your generous offers, but I'm afraid Justin and I are going to turn you down. We’ve been able to survive this long without your help and we certainly don't need to be treated like we’re fragile creatures that need to be locked away."
Flabbergasted by Ianto’s actions, Jack could only sit and stare as his mate turned his back on him. On the other side of the room, John watched this unforeseen turn of events with a big grin on his face. ‘Well done, my boy!’ he silently congratulated the young man. ‘I knew you had it in you!’ Then he frowned as he realised that by not accepting protection, however overbearing it might be, Ianto and Justin were playing right into the Master’s hands.
Stalking over to Justin and Brian Ianto extracted his friend from the other man's hold and rolled his eyes as Brian growled at him. Completely ignoring the older two men he subtly inched Justin backwards and towards the door as he smiled at a highly amused but equally exasperated John, "Thank you for all your help, Sir," and Ianto held out his hand.
John grinned at them as he got to his feet and after placing his body between the two men and the growling alphas, he shook Ianto’s hand first and then Justin’s. "It was no problem; my door is always open to the both of you. I'll start sending out feelers to see if he has any idea that you two are here," he promised.
Relief that they weren’t going to be forced to stay with Jack and Brian was written clearly on both young men's faces as Justin smiled at John. "Thank you, you have no idea how much this means to us."
The smile that Justin favoured the Doctor with was pure sunshine. 'Well I guess his nickname fits,' and the Doctor beamed back at him.
Despite knowing that John Smith was a happily mated man with a family and that it was against pack law to pursue a claimed mate, Brian still didn’t like the fact that the Doctor was standing between him and his mate; ‘He can’t just let them walk out of here! Justin is mine!’ A quick glance at Jack proved he that not only was he thinking along the same lines, but he was just as ready to rip the Doctor away from Ianto as he was with Justin.
Their plans to forcibly separate their mates from the Doctor died the instant Cynthia came back in to the lounge with a smile on her face, "Justin, Ianto, I'll show you out while my husband talks with Brian and Justin." The grateful look the two men sent her was well worth the daggers that Jack and Brian glared at her. 'They have a lot to learn about how to treat their mates.' Cynthia refused to feel sorry for her boss and Jack; ‘these two men are on the run from a man of pure evil and all they can think of is their dicks!’
The Doctor nodded his head appreciating as always how wise and tactful his mate could be as he watched Cynthia lead the two young omegas out. Once he was sure they were far enough away the Doctor whirled around to face the other two alphas and there was no mistaking the anger blazing in his eyes. "What in the bloody hell were you thinking? Did you miss the part where they’ve had their lives ruined by the Master? Where they’ve had to run for their very lives in order to stay free from a mating they don't want?”
Brian opened his mouth to protest but one look from the Doctor had his jaw snapping shut immediately and he settled for glowering sullenly as the older man continued.
“You can't just declare that they’re moving in with you! That makes you no better than the Master, forcing yourselves on them! You have to go slowly with them, give them time to get to know you. And I know how hard it is for any wolf to deny the call of their mate but for now you're going to have to be patient, because if you’re not, you’ll lose them good."
Scowling petulantly, Jack crossed his arms over his chest. "I don't like it but I do understand what you’re saying. And you’re right, I never thought about that way. The last thing either of us want is to be like the Master. I'll wait for now but sooner or later they’re going to have to accept the fact that they are our mates and when that happens, nothing will keep me from claiming Ianto."
