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 by one but, I still don't kill any creature.I can rip this newbie's neck off and then burn him to hide my tracks, but I choose to leave him alive and...Running away from here.Yes. I need to run away.Olivia suspects me, they might smell this vampire's scent in the air soon and they are going to come. The first suspect in this is going to be me again, because my scent is all over that newbie's body now.Shit.Inhaling deeply, I try to think while the pain only makes me want to double over and cry out.Running away it is for sure, by the way.**********Getting home as soon as I could, I open the door and rush to my room without stopping to scold Liam and Bella for doing it on the couch again. They never listen to me anyway.“ Miracle! Is there something wrong? ” Bella's worried voice catches my attention, as she barges inside my room to find me pushing my clothes in a bag.I need to run. That's all I can think about. I just have to cross the Red Moon Pack territory before tomorrow morning.
“ Miracle! I am talking to you. ” Bella's hand appears in my sight when it grabs my wrist to stop me.“ Nothing. Nothing is wrong. I am just going on vacations. ” I pry her hand off and continue pushing my clothes inside the bag.Bella stays inside the room, staring at me confusedly while I pack everything up in the bag and swing it over my shoulders.“ Don't worry. I will be back. ” I feed her a lie and she smiles at me.“ You never go anywhere so I was worried when you started packing. ” She sighs out and goes out to Liam who was standing outside the door.
“ She is just going on vacations. ” She tells him and he nods his head.How wonderful...They don't know anything about me yet I know everything about them.I stroll to them and pull both of them in a hug one by one, before bidding my goodbye, knowing I will never return. They were good friends to me. But I have to leave now and I can't bring it in myself to tell them that I will never return.Perhaps, I will be dead by tomorrow and I will not even have to answer their calls. Who knows!Leaving the apartment building, I go to the cave in the forest. I have already planned a way to escape in case I ever had to run and it turns out, I do ended up having to run in the end.Sitting in the cave, waiting for the night is never easy. The fact that I am spending my eighteenth birthday here...is even worse.Besides, Wolves are more active at night. There is the problem of Border patrol too at night, but the thing is...Those werewolves out for the border patrol don't know me and as I have now taken the potion again, they will think of me as a mere human.That's why I am running away in the night. It will prevent any stumbling upon the people I knew.When the night comes, I sling the bag over my shoulders and step out of the cave to inhale the fresh forest smell. It's heavenly. I have always loved forests.My eyes go to the full moon in the sky and I sigh out. “ Help me Moon Goddess. Don't let me die before meeting him. ”I don't want to die before ever meeting and knowing my mate.Determined, I make my way inside the forest carefully. When I get close to the border, I heave a heavy breath. I am close to freedom.As I breath in relief and try not to think about the pain in my organs, I see a silhouette in the distance - A huge outline of a man.My eyes narrow down to see him clearly, but my vision blurs out. The effects of wolfsbane. I am weak right now.Shaking my head, I continue on my way. I just have to cross their border and I will be fine.When I take a whiff, I realize he is a werewolf. My body freezes and I stop on my spot.Shit.His scent is not familiar though. It's sweet. He smells like the forest specially rosewood. Intoxicating. His scent intoxicates me and I start walking to him without even realizing.The closer I get to him, the faster my heart beats. My palms start sweating profusely.Who is he? I want to know. I NEED to know.There is like a thread pulling me to him. My body acts on it's own and I feel strangely excited.What's happening to me?Before I realize, I am standing in front of him. He is huge. I only come up to his neck.His broad shoulders are illuminated by the moonlight and his gray sweatshirt is doing nothing to hide his strong build.Tracing his body, my eyes land on his face. He has a chiseled jaw, his lips are plump - cherry in color, his nose is straight and his eyes - those silver gray eyes...It's like my breath is knocked out of my lungs. All the hair on my body stand up. My heart beat slows down rhythmically.Something pulls me to him again and I stumble forward, feeling the tingles rising on my body. The feeling makes me feel like I am drunk.“ Mate. ” The whisper spills out of my mouth, before I could even register it in my mind.And then...I hear another female voice in my head.“ RUN! ”
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
CAIN'S POV I was devastated the moment I saw the Red Crescent Moon mark - a mate mark, on her neck. Did she have another mate? Was she marked by someone else? I wonder, as I dig my claws deeper into her flesh. Her blood trickles down my claws and then I feel it...The excruciating pain in my heart. It's like someone is stabbing me repeatedly with a silver dagger when I try to take her heart out and it dawns upon me. The voices I have been hearing in my head, the pain I have been feeling, all the emotions that were not mine... It was all her. All along. She was my mate, but she was already marked. How was this possible when I never marked her? To find out if it’s really my mark or not, I hurt her some more and a smirk pulls up at her lips, making me frown. She knows what's happening to me. Confusion takes over my mind, but I am too stubborn to stop now. I have waited for a long time, for this specifi
MIRACLE'S POV There was some sort of needle pricking my heart as I tried to open my eyes. The pain in my chest hasn't subsided even a little bit. If possible, the pain only grew. The healing is taking too long and I feel like someone has applied healing herbs to fasten the process of healing. It is weird. I had no dreams this time. Forcing myself to open my eyes, I groan out and look around me. My vision blurs out instantly and I sigh out. “ Finally, she woke up. It's been a day already. She is too weak. ” An unfamiliar voice was informing someone. Trying to take in their scents, I recognize one of them as the Beta - Xavier. “ You need to come with me. ” His tone is neutral as he addresses me and I am forced to open my eyes once again. My eyes roam around for a moment before I fix them at Xavier who is standing on my left side. He looks serious. So...The Alpha King didn't find it in himself to k
CAIN'S POV She is definitely different. Her face is the same but her personality is so different. She is feisty and rebellious. No matter what happens, she never gets scared. It's like she doesn't care about anything at all. The only time I get to see her hurt is the time, she realizes her mate doesn't love her and he is going to kill her. “ SEX. MANIAC. ” As she sneers at me for the third time, I am sure of one thing. She is trying to provoke me on purpose. She knows what she is doing very well. No one has ever talked to me like this. Disrespect reeks off her rebellious tone. And I have to keep my temper in check. I don't want to commit suicide by ending up killing her accidentally. First, I need to get rid of this stupid connection between us. “ Xavier. Bring the Oracle already. ” I mindlink Xavier and turn away from her pathetic form
MIRACLE'S POV What. The. Fuck. I have to reject that asshole? No way in hell! If I reject him and this mark disappears, he is going to kill me and he won't die with me. I feel like snapping that Witch or Oracle Amanda's neck. How did she even come here?! “ Stay there. ” Xavier warns as I step too close to him. What's with all of them wanting me to stay far-far away from them? It's not like I am powerful or I can hurt them. I grin at him creepily as he eyes me down. The door to the study room opens again and Amanda steps out. She walks over to me and stops. Her eyes glaze over, creeping me out. “ Cursed girl. ” She speaks in the robotic tone, causing me to jump back from her. Facing me completely, she takes a step forward. Her eyes scream knowledge and knowledge always scares me. Oblivion is a gift from Moon Godde
