MIRACLE'S POVI remember the moment my wolf spat only one word after years.“ RUN! ”I didn't know how my supposedly dead wolf came back to me and growled at me to run away from the man standing right in front of me - The man who I identified as my mate just as my eyes met his silver-gray orbs.His intoxicating scent was another dead giveaway. He smelled so heavenly like the smell of the whole forest specially Rosewood.I wanted to go to him. I wanted to tell him how I waited for him for my whole life. I waited for him so he could answer my questions or so we could find the answers together if he didn't know anything too.I was supposed to go to him. He was my mate. The mark burning on my neck was another proof of this.But my wolf pushed forward and took complete control over me. My clothes teared apart as I shifted in my white furred wolf.And then I ran.Wildly. Fearfully. Aimlessly.I tried my best to stop my wolf from pulling me away from the only man who was capable of answering my questions - the questions that I wanted to be answered even at the expense of my life now.In the history of werewolves - from the time Moon Goddess bestowed the gift of being able to turn into a wolf over us, no one...No one had ever been born marked.Usually, werewolves find their mates when they shift and then they mark each other before mating to complete the mate bond, but in my case...I was born, marked. There was a moon mark on my neck that burned throughout my life - A mate mark.My mate had marked me but how? I was born with this mark. It was not really possible for a mate to mark me before birth.How was this possible for a wolf to be born marked then?I didn't even have the right to reject my mate now because werewolves could only reject a mate before they marked each other.A mark was like an official seal. It was the first step in completing the mate bond between two werewolves then how I was born with this?I wanted to know all of this. I wanted to ask him why and exactly how I was different and I wanted to ask him if he was different like me too, but my wolf - Gia wasn't stopping.
“ STOP GIA! ” I fought Gia for control, but I forgot to control her with time.I thought my wolf died at the age of sixteen but now as I turned into a wolf, I didn't know if I should be happy or sad about it.For now, I only wanted Gia to stop running wildly in the woods so we could go back to our mate, but the fear that I detected from my wolf was worrying me.
Why would my wolf - Gia fear our mate?Suddenly, I heard the loud growl in the night, that shushed all animals down. A shiver ran down my spine as all my hair stood up in fear.
The growling of the wolf was so powerful that my wolf's knees threatened to buckle. We almost stumbled over a branch and fell off a cliff, but Gia managed to run past it.Suddenly, a gigantic black wolf jumped over my wolf and landed right in front of me.My wolf - Gia tried to stop in time to avoid collision, but we were running so fast that our body landed right into the wolf's hard body.
He knew this would happen. He came in front of me on purpose.A loud - sickening sound of bones cracking sounded in the silent night and I knew I broke some ribs after colliding with the huge wolf.Howling in pain, Gia retracted and tried to run again while I was reeling with the hot-searing pain that ran throughout my body.I was weak. I couldn't heal like other werewolves and I could feel the pain as humans did.It was a curse. A brutal curse.Gia stepped back from the black wolf who raised his head arrogantly and stared at us with his red glowing eyes. Power was radiating off his wolf. He was superior. I could smell danger in the air too.A whimper escaped from my wolf's mouth while I realised who was standing in front of me.The Alpha King - Cain Reyes.Only the Alpha King had a huge black wolf with red glowing eyes, when he turned. I recognized him easily now. I had heard about him before. Every werewolf knew of him.“ Submit! ” He growled out as a strong headache hit me in waves.Whimpering, Gia submitted to him and lowered her head, declaring her submission.The more the Alpha King tried to get in my head, the more this headache grew.
His aura was too strong for me. No. It was Deadly.And it felt like he was using force deliberately. He was hurting me because he wanted to hurt me.Why? I didn't know.“ I finally found you Mate. ” The Alpha King's hateful and deep voice penetrated my mind and my ears began to hear a loud buzzing noise, due to the force he was using to hold me down with his Alpha aura.
He could make me submit easily but it didn't seem like his motive. He wanted more, judging by the sheer intensity he used to force his way inside my head and dominate me into going full dead mode in front of him. He was literally trying to kill me. He was just like people stated.
Cruel. Ruthless. Powerful. Dangerous. Deadly.
My wolf started to shift back as it became unbearable for Gia to hold on any longer in front of The Alpha King.She left me alone again. She left me naked, vulnerable, hurting, broken and helpless in front of the Mighty Alpha King - Cain Reyes....My Mate.His glowing red eyes were glaring at me. That was all I saw before my breathing got caught in my throat and my eyes rolled to the back of my head due to the immense pain my mate was causing me.He came. The man I wanted...came, but he didn't come to cherish me.
He came to take his revenge on me and he came to kill me.
For what? I didn't know in all honesty.
MIRACLE'S POV “ Mira! This way. ” The smooth voice calls out to me and I crane my neck to look up at the brown wolf standing in front of me. A smile make its way up my lips after seeing him. Soon enough, we both are running happily in the thick forest - quick and steady on our paws. I love this. I love running through the trees. This gives me a sense of freedom. I love the way cold breeze glides over my skin pushing all my hair back. It feels like I am flying without any care in the world. It's thrilling. But what I love most about this moment is that my elder Brother Matthew is right beside me, running wildly. I want to catch upto him. I want to cross him so I can win from him for once in my life. “ Matthew Slow Down! I think I am going to fall. ” My wolf grins and mindlinks him to slow down in a tired voice. “ I won't fall for that trick. ” He replies as he runs faster - faster than I have ever seen a
MIRACLE'S POV Leaving my house, I rush to get to the cafe I work at. I am supposed to be in my high school, but I dropped out when I was kicked out of the pack. It's hard living on your own and bearing all expenses. Besides, I need to pay Miranda some huge money to get a potion - a potion which helps concealing my aura. As I am now a rogue without any pack, some werewolves might come to hunt me one day. They will come to hunt me and they will kill me. They won't care if I am a good rogue or a bad rogue, they are going to kill me. The fact that I lived in the Red Moon Pack's territory never made it much easier. I have to be more careful. It's the pack which is being run by the Alpha King himself currently. He is known to be ruthless, cruel, dangerous, deadly and so powerful that his presence can cause some werewolves to feel severe headaches. The headaches mostly happen when he is trying to instill the fear of his power
MIRACLE'S POV As I sit on the chair opposite Olivia with her eyes fixed at me, I know what I am going to do. Earlier, Selvia came to call me out and she asked me to have coffee with Olivia and her. Regretfully, I agreed. I had to. If I had ran away, Olivia and Selvia were going to be sure that I am a werewolf and before I knew it, all the members of the Red Moon pack would have been hot on my tail, to find me and then kill me. I can't even take on Selvia, let alone a whole pack of Merciless killers. That's why even after knowing what's going to happen, I still stayed. I have to stay to get rid of their doubts. But, all of this doesn't help in easing my anxiety. No werewolf ever wanted to be anywhere near wolfsbane. And drinking it? That is gruesome. It will cause me a burn so strong that I will be twisting in pain in the blink of an eye. I will feel my own organs burning inside me and it will be
MIRACLE'S POV “ King? I don't know anyone by that name. ” I mutter, before bringing up my knee and ramming it roughly against his rib, breaking two of them instantly. Howling in pain, he doubles over and drops me on the ground. Not wasting any time, I grab his neck and twist it harshly. His body drops down on the ground, hitting it hard, his neck still twisted at a weird angle. He is not dead. I don't need to worry about that. He just fell unconscious for a while - a day to be precise. King? Who was he talking about? I wonder but push past him to go back in the cafe. I have caused some serious trouble. Sighing, I stop by the door and look back at the body. I was weak. Emphasize on that WAS. I acted weak when I had the power to defeat everyone else. I showed them mercy when I was powerful, but now... It was merely for survival and when you are in that survival mode, you find all those weaknesses disappearing one
MIRACLE'S POV “ RUN! ” The familiar female voice which screams in my head, shocks me to my core. G-Gia? Is it Gia? All my focus shifts to my supposedly dead-wolf from my most awaited Mate. “ Gia? ” I speak in my mind, hoping desperately to hear her voice again. What if it's my imagination and Gia is really not here? The thought makes me sad and I look back up at my mate. His silver gray eyes are staring me down intensely. An aura of power is radiating off him. I don't understand the emotion in his eyes at all. Why is he not coming to me? Why is he not making any move? I stumble forward as confusion takes over me. He sets his lips in a thin line and before I can take even a step more closer to him, Gia screams in my head once again. “ RUN! ” This time the intensity of her scream in my head makes me nauseous. All my senses heighten as I look around and I realize it was real
CAIN'S POV I shift back to my human form and observe her. She lays in front of me now... Unconscious. Naked. Vulnerable. Defenseless. Hurt. Cold. Do I care? No. I don't. I had been there. I had laid just like her as I watched her with my broken eyes. And it was something, I am never going to forget. I hurted her deliberately. The expressions of pain on her wolf's face were worth watching and enjoying. A wave of sick twisted satisfaction hit my body as the sound of her bones breaking echoed in the silent forest. After I made her submit to me by using my Alpha aura, I enjoyed seeing the hurt look in her eyes. But this made me hundred percent sure of one thing now... She doesn't remember anything. My Mate is clueless about why she is cursed and the reason behind my undying hate for her, but she knows I am going to kill her, because this little thing worked in the Red Moon Cafe for over a year now.
MIRACLE'S POV “ Matthew! ” I call out to him as I walk behind him in the thick forest. His golden brown hair sway as breeze softly hits his body. Turning around, he throws me the same radiant smile and I sigh out softly. Seeing him from so close has always been a pleasure for me. Atleast, I am able to see him in my dreams. It's supposed to be a nightmare, but it's not, just because Matthew - My brother is here. “ Come on Mira. We can't give up now. ” He urges me to keep walking. I remember this moment. It was the time our father used to send us to a long walk through the forest after training and I always complained that I was tired and I just wanted to sit. But now... I just want to keep walking behind him. Just how fast the time - good time, passed. Is it weird that I am conscious of the fact that I dreaming right now? I think it is, but who cares anyway. Eventually, the same
MIRACLE'S POV All thoughts of running away, leave me at once. Whether I like it or not, Selvia helped me out alot in this past year and I don't think, I can hurt her. She protected me when those badass wolves wanted to assert their power on me, thinking of me as a mere human. Werewolves don't usually help humans, but she did.Sighing, I step forth and shake my head. She is angry at me. I can smell her anger. I can feel it in my bones. I betrayed her. That's what she is thinking, I am sure of it. Her blue eyes are often changing colors, her wolf threatening to come out and attack me for this betrayal. “ So...Olivia was right! ” Selvia sneers and I flinch at her hard tone. Well. She seems more angry than I anticipated, but the thing is... I am going to die in a while and I don't have any reason to explain myself. Not that Selvia can actually understand me even if I do reason out with her. No one can really underst
