Oran scanned the crowd at The Laughing Pig. They hadn't been in for months. Shortly after their night with Sin, their alpha had ordered them out of Moonspell to help another pack with a security issue. The issue should have been solved in a week or two, but there had been complications. They'd only arrived back in town last week. They'd come to the bar nearly every night looking for the little waitress, but they had yet to see her. Deciding he'd had enough of looking and wondering, he flagged a waitress in hopes of getting some answers.
"Can I help you?" the little blonde asked with a seductive smile.
"There was a waitress here four months ago. Petite, curvy, short dark hair. She has a tattoo on her back of a cherry blossom tree."
"Oh! You mean Sin. She doesn't work here anymore."
Oran frowned. How in the hell was he supposed to find his mate if she wasn't here? Night wasn't going to be pleased. "Where did she go?"
The woman shrugged. "All I know is that Lynox fired her about three months ago."
He swore. "Would anyone know where I can find her?"
She nodded toward the bar. "Lynox should know, but I don't know that he'll tell you. He doesn't give out personal information on employees, even when those employees don't work here anymore."
Oran nodded and headed toward the bar, intent on finding the little vixen who had plagued his dreams since their one night together. He'd had several hot little wolves come on to him in Elk Ridge, but none of them had interested him. He wanted Sin and only Sin. And while Night might not admit it, he knew his brother felt the same way. Neither of them had ever been celibate before, not until now. It was the first time either of them had wanted a relationship.
It hadn't gone unnoticed by either of them that they'd been marked during their one night with the hot little waitress, but they'd been too stupid to act on it that night, both caught by surprise. Then, they'd tried to talk to her a few times at the bar and she'd shrugged them off. They'd decided to take a week or two to regroup, and then the call had come from Hayden, telling them they were to leave town for a job. It couldn't have come at a worse time. They'd explained to Hayden about finding their mate, and he'd sympathized but had insisted he needed them to make the trip.
He approached the bar and signaled the bartender.
"What can I get you?" Lynox asked.
"Information. I'm looking for Sin."
He frowned. "She doesn't work here anymore."
"So I heard, but I need to find her. Do you know where she works now?"
Lynox studied him for a minute, his gaze straying to the mark on Oran's arm. "You're one of the guys she went home with about four months ago, aren't you? I'm guessing you got that that night, too."
The bartender seemed to come to a decision after a few minutes. "She's working at the Big Bear Diner. I don't know what shift though."
"Thanks. I appreciate it."
Lynox nodded and went back to work.
Oran pulled out his phone and sent a text to Night, letting him know their little sex goddess wasn't at the bar any longer and where they could find her. Taking a chance at finding her this late at night, he decided to make his way over to the diner. If he found her, great. If not, maybe someone could at least tell him when she would be in to work.

Sin stretched her lower back. It seemed to ache all the time now, along with her feet and swollen ankles. Her belly had gotten big enough that she didn't fit in the standard uniform for waitresses so Mavis let her wear a knit maternity dress. She'd bought two and rotated them so she could wash one each night and have one ready for the next day.
The bell jingled over the door and she turned to smile and welcome the new customer, but her smile froze on her face.
Oran looked shocked and then angry. He quickly strode to her side and pulled her out of hearing range of the other customers.
"What the hell? When were you going to say something?" he demanded. "Didn't you think we had a right to know?"
"I figured I wouldn't see you again so it wouldn't be an issue."
He growled. "That's our kid you're carrying. Of course it's an issue. We had a right to know."
"Technically, it's Night's baby. And when you stopped coming to the bar, I figured you weren't interested anymore."
"We both fucked you that night. You belong to both of us, and so does the baby. As for our absence, we had a job to do out of town. We just got back last week and we've been looking for you ever since."
"I don't belong to anyone but myself," she hissed. "If you wanted more than a one-night stand with me, you had several opportunities to say something before you left town."
"All right, you have a point. We should've said something and I'm sorry we didn't. I guess we figured we had time. I was content just being near you and I'm sure Night felt the same way."
She didn't say anything. What could she say? This conversation wasn't going the way she'd thought it would. Of course, she hadn't planned on ever seeing them again so she'd hoped to avoid the issue altogether. She fidgeted while she gathered her thoughts. Now that Oran knew, he was sure to tell Night. The question was how would Night react?
Would he even care? As much as she'd convinced herself it didn't bother her if the brothers showed an interest in her and the baby or not, she knew she'd been lying to herself.
"I can't talk about this right now. I'm working."
"What time do you get off work?" he asked.
"In about four hours."
He nodded toward a booth in her section in the corner. "Then I'll wait."
Had she been paying attention, she would've noticed that he'd pulled out his phone to send a text. If she had, she might have been concerned, more so than she already was. Sin didn't know what she was going to do with one Blaylock brother, much less two.
