Bitten Book club chapters 13-18
Jeremy refused to let the pack go after the three mutts just yet. Clay is upset and about to storm out when Jeremy warns him that if he goes after them that he can’t come back. Jeremy tells him if he can’t control himself, he will lock him up in the cage, but if he won’t control himself he’ll be banished.
Clay runs out into the woods and Elena follows him. Clay yells and punches the trees. He tells Elena that he’s trying, but everything is telling him to go after the mutts, but that he can’t disobey Jeremy.
Jeremy kisses Elena and when she returns his affections. He tells her he loves her.
Elena woke up in the woods the next morning and Clay wasn’t next to her. Then, she feels water dripping on her. Clay is dripping wet standing over her. He said he was testing the temperature of the pond and that it’s perfect for the first swim of the season. He bargains with her that if she goes for a swim with him before they go back to the house that he will cook her breakfast afterwards, anything she wants.
