In this tease, Linc is having trouble with his classes once his wolf has reared it furry head.

Linc cursed himself on every stair he climbed, and he'd done the full six flights without breaking a sweat. He turned around and plowed down again. It was the only way to keep from erupting. Elliot was such a complete waste of breath. It was taking all Linc's concentration to not hunt him down and rip his throat out.
He reached the top flight again without really noticing he'd turned around. Now he was breathing heavily. What had come over him? He hadn't been like this since he was Wash's age. Normally he only got worked up like this the week before the moon. It was still two weeks away.
He pattered down and found Zoe standing at the bottom staring at him.
“I didn't mean to scare you,” he said.
She nodded but didn't speak. “I'd like to say you didn't, but you'd know I was lying.” She didn't meet his gaze, looking at her feet. “What did you mean to do?” she asked, looking up at him through lowered lashes.
Linc licked his lips. Kill your abusive boyfriend? Scare you into sanity? Mark my territory?
Where the fuck had that come from?
She took half a step back, really looking at him and blanching. His blood was still hot and he knew he couldn't have a decent conversation with her, not until he'd burned it off. He reached out and stroked her hair. “Will you be here later? Around four?” That was two hours away. He had a class, but there was no point in going now.
“I-I can be.”
“I'll look for you,” he said, lifting a hand to touch her cheek and wanting to touch her more. That territorial thing wasn't imagined. It wasn't anything he was familiar with either.
Her eyes were still wide, like a deer in the headlights, but she nodded.
Unable to resist, he seized her shoulders and landed a quick smack of a kiss on her lips before rushing past her and out the door.
Outside, he wanted to howl. He would love to find Elliot and rip him apart. If anything, that urge was stronger. He hadn't been a slave to the wolf like this since he first joined his uncle and grandfather at the full moon.
He jogged away from campus, heading down a trail toward the river. He could run until the murderous rage died down. It took a lot longer than he expected and when he circled back to find Zoe, he was still on edge. He slowed to a walk and pulled out his phone, dialling his cousin, Franklin.
