“As I looked into his eyes, trying to see into the depths of that darkness, it hit me. It was subtle, but it hit me. The rush of attraction.”

“You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. ”

It’s not an instant connection. He doesn’t just wake up one day, walk into class and fall in love with her. He’s known her since the second grade, he used to share his snackpack with her for fucks sake; and she hasn’t given him the time of day since. It’s fitting into place every time they talk, until one day he’s walking her home and it snaps in. She doesn’t know what’s going on, but she can feel it too, clutching at his shoulders as his nose drops into the crook of her neck. Derek can’t explain it, but after a dramatic pause Peter does. A mate bond, nature ruling over choice. Lydia isn’t happy with it, and Isaac isn’t either truthfully. But she’s stuck with his ass following her around apologizing, trying to make the situation better. She generally ignores him.
When Jackson comes back it’s different. Isaac can feel the longing in Lydia’s heart and it hurts. He’s not even thinking when he see’s Jackson put his hand on her shoulder. One minute he’s watching them interact on the other side of the room with Derek, the next he’s sitting in a chair with Lydia hovering over him, looking scared, and Jackson is out cold and bleeping from the temple. She has blood on her hands.
“You’re an idiot,” she whispers at him, her hands shaking as she brushes her fingers across his cheek. “What if you’d gotten hurt?”
And maybe she’s not ignoring whatever twisted connection they have after all, maybe she’s not ignoring him. The concern disappears from her face in an instant, and she straightens.
“You’re mine.” he says without thinking.
She snorts, then sneers. “Caveman.”But his mouth is moving without any permission from his brain. And he’s saying some stupid stuff that has to be the mate bond because there’s no way he’d ever say something like- “You’ve got my heart and soul in your purse, Lydia. And I know…I know you know that.”

“ The little blonde goddess weaseled her way under his skin, haunted his dreams and waking thoughts, and now she has the audacity to declare that she would have nothing further to do with him. It would not do. “
