The last week and a half, I have been getting this strange feeling that I am being watched. Would Alpha David be sending someone to watch me? I wonder what he is planning. I know the Rogue attacks were getting out of hand and that he had to ask the Blood Moon Pack’s Alpha for help. They have been along the borders. I have run into a few of them in the last week. Their auras are very dominating. I thought our Pack was sinister, but theirs is on an entirely different level. They even make me want to retreat, and that’s saying something because not even Alpha David can make me submit with me being a Hybrid. The only reason I do is because I know I can’t beat him. Sometimes it makes me wonder if I had human blood how much stronger I would be than my Pack. I know that’s the only reason Hybrids are hunted down because we would be the dominant species, but there are so few of us that we don’t stand a chance against a werewolf Pack. Therefore, I will always have to remain hidden and do as David says, because if he leaks what I am out, I will be hunted down like the rest of the Hybrids that have stepped foot into the city. I also know if I drink blood, they will realise straight away that I’m not just a wolf, and I really don’t feel like being attacked by my own Pack. Lost in my thoughts, I didn’t realise someone had come into the diner until they grabbed my elbow as I was walking past to clean some tables.
Placing my hand over my heart and jumping back, I looked at the customer.
“Sorry, I didn’t see you. You nearly gave me a heart attack,” I said nervously. The diner was extremely quiet today. The man just stared at me; he was quite handsome. He had shoulder-length hair that was pulled into a ponytail at the back of his neck. He was very lean and muscular, and he had green eyes and tanned skin. He was wearing a grey suit, so he looked like he just stepped out of an important meeting.
“That’s fine Hun, I was wondering if I could get some menus.”
“Sure,” I replied, going back to the counter and retrieving one. I passed it to him and waited for him to order. I could tell he was a werewolf by the way he carried himself, plus his scent was a dead giveaway. I wonder what Pack he is from.
“For now, I will just get two coffees black, no sugar please,” he said politely.
I quickly ducked to the kitchen, putting the coffee on. I glanced over to him, which was a mistake as he was staring directly at me, watching what I was doing. Marcus came over standing behind me, “Order?” he asked.
I shook my head, turning to him.
“He hasn’t ordered yet; I think he is waiting for someone,” I said, grabbing two mugs and the jug, walking back over to the booth he is sitting at. I placed the mugs down before pouring the steaming hot coffee in the mugs. As I was about to leave, he stopped me, grabbing my elbow again. I looked down at him.
“What’s your name?” he asked.
“A... Aria,” I stuttered. He was starting to make me uncomfortable. I looked back towards the kitchen where Marcus was watching in case this bloke turned all creep on me.
“Nice to meet you, Aria. My name is Zane,” he said, smiling at me. He had perfectly straight pearly white teeth. Looking down at his hand that still had hold of my elbow, I could feel my face getting hot. I quickly moved out of his reach, stepping back only to turn and walk straight into what felt like a brick wall. But it wasn’t, it was another man. He was about 6.5 feet tall, had short dark hair, and I could feel his abs through his shirt when I walked into him. I looked up to apologise when his scent hit me. He smelt amazing, he had an earthy aroma like rosewood and sandalwood. I leaned in and inhaled without realising, when I heard someone clear their throat awkwardly. My eyes snapped open, and I stepped back quickly, apologising before taking off back towards the kitchen.
Once in the kitchen, I tried to calm my racing heart by taking deep breaths. “What’s wrong with me?” I asked myself, not realising I said it out loud.
“Nothing is wrong with you. If I had to go serve those two hotties, I would be hyperventilating too. Damn girl, they are fine,” said Marcus, coming up behind me.
Straightening out my apron, I followed him back towards the kitchen, stealing glances towards where they sat at the back of the café. I was secretly hoping Zoe would be back from her doctor appointment before I had to serve them.
A few minutes passed before they waved me over. I cautiously walked over making sure to stay a few feet away so I wouldn’t get distracted by his intoxicating scent.
“What can I get you?” I asked, not looking at either one of them.
“What Pack do you belong to? I can tell you’re a wolf, but you smell different from any normal wolf,” asked the new mystery person.
Instead of answering, I just repeated the same question. “What can I get you?” My tone sounded bored.
The man smirked before reaching forward and grabbing my hand. As soon as he touched me, sparks flew through my hand and arm, leaving a tingling sensation. I quickly pulled my hand back as if I had just been burned. Taking a step back, I looked at him. His eyes turned pitch black, even the sclerae. It only lasted a few seconds before going back to their normal silver-grey colour. He smiled at me; I couldn’t bring myself to look away, completely mesmerised by his gaze.
“I’m Reid, Alpha of The Blood Moon Pack. What Pack do you belong to?” he asked, using his Alpha voice.
My heart rate sped up fear consuming me. His Pack was the Pack helping ours, and he had an even scarier reputation then Alpha David. He was known for being cruel and merciless to those that have stood against him. Alpha Reid was also said to have wiped out complete Packs when they wouldn’t agree over territory disputes, but he was also an Alpha no other Alpha could go against. He had the largest Pack with over 500 Pack members, 95 percent of them being Pack warriors. Their Pack has been undefeated, and even if other Packs tried to stand against theirs, it would be a bloodbath. He is also the one responsible for killing off all the Hybrids. He made me want to run away or submit, which no Alphas have that effect on me.
“Ari, you got to go get Lily,” Marcus sang out from behind the counter, distracting me and also saving me from submitting and answering him. I looked in his direction relieved, thanking the Moon Goddess for my escape. I quickly ripped off my apron, chucking it at Marcus, not daring to look behind me as I ran out the door to get Lily from school.
Reid’s POV I watched her escape the diner. I heard her heart rate spike when I told her my name. She has every right to fear me, but I don’t want to scare her. My wolf wanted her. All of her, and so did I. Never in my life have wanted something as much as I wanted her to be mine, but what was the most interesting thing about her was the fact that she could fight my Alpha’s voice. I could tell by the look on her face she wanted to submit, but she was also determined not to reveal anything about herself. Her scent radiated fear. It took all my strength not to chase after her and mark her. The bloke behind the counter came over and introduced himself as Marcus, pulling me out of my thoughts. He smelt human. We gave him our orders before deciding to move over to the table and chairs, where I know the girl Lily always sits after school. Zane raised an eyebrow at me when I moved but followed anyway. Aria’s POV “Aria,” he asked while I tried to clean the table as fast as possible. “That’s your name, isn’t it?” he said, reaching out and grabbing my hand before standing up and pulling me into him. He lent forward and ran his nose along my chin to the crook of my neck. The sensation made me shiver. He smelt so good it made my mouth water, made me want to lean in and touch him. I reached up and put my hand on his chest, inhaling his mouth-watering scent. I heard him chuckle softly before he kissed my cheek softly, which sent sparks all through me. “Why do you smell different than a normal wolf?” he asked, which then snapped me out of my trance. I quickly stepped back. He looked upset for some reason and took a step toward me, I quickly grabbed Lily’s bag and walked fast back behind the counter. He did not leave though. He sat at

Reid’s POVLeaving home early, I decided to head straight to Joe’s Diner, not bothering to send Zane today. Besides, I also had a meeting at 9:00 with Alpha David. Seeing as we have cleared his rogues, he wants my men off his territory now.I was extremely tired. My wolf kept me up most of the night. Even now Ryder was starting to become agitated and restless, and I had been struggling to keep him contained. All night he kept telling me something was wrong but did not know what. Getting in my car, I drove quickly, ignoring the speed limit, not taking me long to arrive at the small diner. Parking the car on the curb out the front, I got out and went in. I was greeted by the owner, Zoe. She was a nice lady. I sat at the counter, looking around, trying to see if she was in. Zoe came over, placing a mug of coffee in front of me. Reaching for it, I took a sip. After about an
Aria’s POVThe next morning, I woke up, and Lily was already dressed for school, quietly waiting, leaning against my side. Sitting up slowly, my body ached. I reached for my watch glancing down at the small screen that said 9:30 AM. “Shit, we are already late,” I told Lily.“I tried to wake you; we missed our bus,” she replied, putting her shoes on and trying to tie the laces herself.“Come here,” I said. She walked over, and I quickly tied her laces. “Pass me my uniform please, Lil.” She quickly did as I asked, passing me my clothes. Putting my bra and panties on, I reached for my blouse Lily was holding. As I moved, I could feel my wound reopening. I slowly placed my hand over it, trying to hold it together. Lily helped me put my black slacks on and my shoes. I quickly
Reid’s POV As soon as I saw her walk to the back, knowing her shift was about to end, I couldn’t help myself, I followed her. I stood in the doorway, watching as she bent down to remove the clothes from the dryer, completely unaware I was watching. She bent over to grab the last of the clothes, and my dick instantly went hard as I stared at the shape of her plump ass in the air. I reached over, placing my hand on her hips, and she instantly froze. I watched as she sniffed the air slightly, spinning her around so she faced me. I pushed my body against hers. I could feel her skin heating up under my touch. This is the reaction she should have had the moment we met, but she is only affected when I’m close or touching her. Curious to see her reaction, I ran my hands up the side of her body and into her hair before grabbing a handful. I pulled it back so her face was looking dire
Aria’s POVWalking up the long driveway, Lily moved in my arms, waking up. I placed her on her feet. The night was cold, and the walk home took longer than usual since I was still in pain from the gash on my ribs. It was starting to get cold, and the breeze made it a little chillier than normal. I could smell an earthy aroma telling me it was going to rain later. When we were nearly all the way to the Pack house, Lily looked up at me tugging on my hand, I looked down at her.“Can I run ahead please? I really need to pee.” I chuckled at her; she was wriggling around while she walked.“Go on then.”She looked relieved and took off running towards the Pack house, which was only about ten metres away now. I watched her run up the steps and into the Pack house.
Aria’s POV Waking up when the ute came to a stop, I laid under the tarp, frozen. Listening carefully, I could hear music blaring loudly and lots of voices. I was not sure how long we had been in the tray because not long after our escape, I had given in to exhaustion. When I was sure the coast was clear, I stuck my head out from under the tarp, trying to find anything that might tell me where we were. We were in a parking lot. Looking out, I could tell we were at a bar, one that I had never heard of, so we were not on Black Moon territory, but where were we exactly? Feeling Lily move beside me, I clamped my hand down on her mouth. She looked up groggily at me as I motioned with my finger to my lips telling her to keep quiet. When I heard voices, I quickly stuck my head down and back under the tarp lying motionless. The voices stopped right next to the tray. The voices sounde
Reid’s POVDeciding to leave the diner, I mind linked Zane. “I want everyone on the lookout for Aria and Lily.”“Everything okay, Boss?”“Yes, I just need answers. I had an interesting conversation with Zoe, the owner. She told me a few things that aren’t making any sense, but she won’t say anything else. I will explain when I see you. Just find them and bring them back to the Pack house. Is there any news on which Pack they belong to or last names?”“No, Boss, whoever Aria is, someone has gone to great lengths to keep her hidden. Same goes for Lily. There are no birth records for Aria, not even banking information. Zoe must pay her in cash, and Lily’s records are sealed seeing as she is a minor. Public records wouldn&rsq
