“You said something, Valentine?” Zander shifted his gaze as well as grunts towards Valen while he walked further until her table.
The girls who were sitting with Valen on her table fled from there not before mouthing an apology. Everyone sat scared in the canteen except for Valen!
She twisted her mouth with an ‘I don’t care!’ look on her face. Valen behaved like really she was not frightened by the bully Zander and his dark eyes that were staring at her perilously.
While others assumed that her courage came just because she was the mate to the future Alpha, Valen stood to her grounds without thinking about Ryley at all. For her, he was one of them. No matter what.
What was wrong was wrong in her perspective. She was acting like that not because she was the mate to his best friend but because it was freaking wrong! First day of the new academic year and he was sowing a seed of fear in their Hearts. His perilous tone and grievous glares were what she hated to say the least.
Valen rose from the chair. Her chest heaved frustratingly as she parted her lips to spit back at him, "Yes, I di—"
"We are leaving," Alas she could not finish her words because of Ryley who interrupted her.
"But Ryley," She tried to counter yet her Alpha mate gathered her bag and phone from the table and her wrist.
"No ifs and buts Valen, we are leaving now." He raised a brow while she growled with more disappointment.
So he was saving him. Ryley Shine, her mate, was defending his friend indirectly.
"Sorry, you guys continue. I will take her away." Ryley mouthed and dragged her away from the canteen but Valen kept grunting and throwing her anger at Ryley.
She was stupid, wasn't she? It was her who was saved and not Zander.
"This girl," Zander huffed as he watched their figures disappearing from the canteen.
But then, a second later, his lips curved into an unexpected smile that was indescribable while his heart mentioned, 'A perfect mate material!'
In the Principal's office,
Alpha Hercules, Ryley's dad, sat in one of the two chairs placed before the desk for visitors. It was slightly turned towards the door that was behind his back while he watched his son standing with his bully gang.
Oh no, they were not there because of what happened in the canteen. Nobody would dare to talk upon them. Not even if they made a poor soul bleed. Zander and his friend did the same thing though. They made the poor guy who absent midnedly remarked about their group. They pierced a fork in the poor guy's palm until he bled, and then made him apologize before they pulled the steel out.
"So," Their pupils simultaneously lifted up to look at Alpha as he broke the quiet atmosphere with his calm yet crazily perilous tone. "You guys are back despite your refusals, isn't it Zander?"
Zander raised his eye brows in amusement while he wondered how did he learn about his reluctance, "Huh."
7Zander's POV"No, Alpha, I mean... Yes, alpha." Clarke and Yeoman coughed together, after I answered with fumbling.They are my friends but they don't leave any moment to tease me. However, I am no less than a jerk. My one dark glare shot in their direction, as they were standing beside each other, shut them up.They innocently looked at the floor as if they never coughed. Trust me, if it had been a different moment then I must have banged their heads with a baseball bat, my hands were tied with the invisible ropes of obedience as we were standing in front of the alpha of our pack.I would not have minded to bang their heads across the Principal if he were alone. Who cares about his presence? Not me."Anyways," I had to brush away all the thoughts and focus back on alpha's word as he ki
8Reyne stacked her clothes in the little closet she was rewarded with. She had wondered that she might have to sew herself a cloth bag to keep her clothes like previously. But excitement hit her hard when she realized that she not only was given a bedroom but also a little bit of furniture that was enough for her.
9… “This is the pack house?” looking at the huge mansion standing before her, tall and massive, Reyne’s pupils closely scrutinized it in awe and bewilderment. Just like her new house, this was another outstanding building she saw on the same day. She never observed such a big pack house in her intact life. With a nice garden before the building, the big mansion attained tough across her view. She was admiring every stone of it while her father said, “This is not a pack house. This house belongs to the alpha alone.” her face snapped in his direction as eyes shockingly stared at him. Mr. Stark moved to see his daughter's face with a grimacing facade, “Reyne, in this pack, every wolf and his family is allotted a new house of his own. The concept of 'One pack house, hundred of members' is not followed here. This is the finest pack and most advanced in America." She moved her eyes back at the big building. She came from a poor family with a strict father. They kept travelling from pa
10… "Alpha." Hari Stark curtsied before Alpha Hercules, so did his beautiful daughter, Reyne. Alpha Hercules amusingly smiled. He fed his eyes with a view of Reyne's beautiful facade and her impressive presentation. She respectfully bowed down before him like a lady of a big house. She held her knee length frock from the sides and expertly curtsied like she had taken a class to master it. "Mr. Stark, have a seat please. You too, my beautiful girl." Reyne smiled hesitantly, she looked at her father for approval and sat next to him after he gave her a nod of permission. While her eyes admired the finely designed hall of the alpha's house, the Alpha occupied himself with the job of admiring her. Hari Stark noticed it. He clenched his jaw tight as frustration grew deep and strong in his chest. His daughter was again presenting herself in a manner she should not. He had warned her. Told her to not do anything but no, Reyne never listened. She was a stupid teenage girl who needed a
11"Wow, you are talented along with being beautiful, dear." Luna Garnet complimented Reyne after having seen the plating she did.Reyne smiled, feeling delighted, "Thanks so much, ma'am."She was in the luxurious kitchen of Alpha Hercules' house, helping his mate, Luna Garnet, in the kitchen. She was getting bored, sitting between the elders while they discussed their residence and other important stuff. Reyne was feeling low on her spirit but then Luna occurred and asked for a helping hand that she gladly offered.It barely took some time for them to get used to each other after coming inside the kitchen, and the ladies were enjoying it already."Where did you learn this?" The Luna asked, looking at the nicely decorated muffins."From the internet!" Reyne answered as she followed Luna's gaze.
12...At night,"Why aren't you joining those girls there?" Lifting his head from his beer glass, with an arched brow, Zander watched Valen poke him on his right hand's bicep.He bit the corner of his mouth whilst trying hard to resist her presence around him, "Why would I join them, huh?" he asked in return as he looked at a bunch of three hot girls moving their hips on the dance floor."I wonder why not?" He heard it coming from her mouth. "You look like a dumbfuck playboy. I can only wonder why are you sitting here and not hitting on those girls!" With his jaw dropping in shock, Zander glared at her angrily as he finally realized why she had even come to see him in the corner of the club in the first place."Just go away before I ruin your makeup with a hard punch. Do you want me to do that?" He threatened her, and that was enough for Valen to know that his threa
13...Reyne watched the stars in the sky peeking down at her, smilingly. She raised her right hand and pretended to touch them with her forefinger. More like pop them one by one like soap bubbles.Unfortunately, they were so high that she cannot reach them! Reyne huffed, her hands crossed across her breasts and she stuck her tongue out towards the sky. It was her frustration she showed to those stars that teased her by being so high and unreachable."You think you can look at me and not let me touch you? You are wrong, Mr. Star and relatives." She started speaking to the stars. "You wait and watch. Just let me get my mate. After he comes, I will make sure that all of you kiss my feet."Reyne smiled and blushed. She covered her face with her palms and acted crazy. She sheepishly chuckled and peeked through her fingers at the starry sky, and covered her eyes again.This was n
