Life has been unfair to me. It has separated me from everyone who was dear to me. I lost my parents, my brother, and my mate. It seems like I am cursed. I looked at the picture in my hand. My beautiful mate wrapped in my arms, smiling at me, looking as gorgeous as ever. It was supposed to be the beginning of our new life together, but it turned out to be a nightmare instead.
No matter how hard I tried, I could never forget that day. The day I lost almost every one of my family. I closed my eyes as a tear slipped past my eyes. My heart contracted painfully in my chest. It has been years, but the memory is still fresh in my head.
“Chris, we have to—-” My sister Brenna barged into my room, stopping mid-sentence when she noticed the picture in my hand.
“Don’t you knock?” I asked in an annoyed tone.
“Why do I have to knock?” She asked, shrugging her shoulders as she walked further into my room.
“Because they are called etiquettes,” I grumbled, wanting her to leave already.
“Whatever! I came here to remind you about your visit to the Silver Crescent Pack.” She said, rolling her eyes at me before she turned to look at me seriously.
“Chris,” she started, sighing. She sat beside me on the bed. “I know you love her, but you have to move on. She is gone. You can’t live your life drowning yourself in sorrow like this.” She continued giving my shoulder a comforting squeeze.
I know she is worried about me. I know she means well. I know she is probably right. However, her words only made my wounded heart bleed more. I couldn’t stop the anger bubbling inside me, and before I knew it, I pushed her hand away. Standing up in anger, I almost knocked her to the ground.
“What the fuck do you mean?” I growled, breathing heavily as my wolf clawed in my head to take over.
“She was my mate, my Luna, and the love of my life. You want me to forget everything and move on like nothing happened?” Her eyes widened in shock, sensing my anger. She immediately shook her head, taking a tentative step toward me.
“No, I didn’t mean it that way, Chris.” She said. She was panicking, her eyes shedding tears. “I promise, I didn’t mean it like that. Chris, you are my brother. I love you and I worry about you. I just want to see you happy.” She said, reaching out to comfort me, but I slapped her hand away. I wasn’t able to control myself anymore.
“Don’t fucking touch me,” I growled, and she flinched at the tone of my voice.
“All you have to do is leave me the fuck alone,” I shouted.
“Get the fuck out of my sight,” I growled, unknowingly using an Alpha command on her.
She nodded, taking a deep breath. Her eyes hardened as she looked at me. She turned and walked out of my room without looking back. I was losing my fight with my wolf. I screamed and growled, finally letting my wolf take over.—------------
I woke up to the peaceful sound of the waterfall. I looked around to find myself in the woods. This has been my secret hideout ever since I was a kid. I used to come here to get away from everyone when I needed some alone time. I stood up, realizing I was in my wolf form.
I tried to recall how I reached here. After thinking for a while, I recalled how I lost control again. I have had no control over myself or my wolf ever since I lost my mate. It has been my breaking point. My sister was the only family I have left.
Fuck! I had hurt her with my words. I have to apologize to her. I turned around and sprinted for the packhouse. I can’t believe I lost control to an extent that I made my sister cry and I didn’t even care about it. I just hope she forgives me.
This is the fastest I have ever ran to get to my sister. I reached the packhouse in less than five minutes and went behind a tree to shift. I grabbed the basketball shorts from the clothes we hide behind the tree and pulled them on. I rush inside the packhouse and go looking for my sister, but she is nowhere to be found.
I panicked when I didn’t find her anywhere. I go to run out of the packhouse to look for my seventeen-year-old sister when I bumped into my Beta, Toby.
“I am sorry, Alpha. I was just coming to you.” He said, bowing his head respectfully.
“Whatever it is, will have to wait, Toby. I can’t find Breena, I have to look for her.” I reply moving to leave.
“Breena has left a message for you, Alpha.” He said, making me stop and turn around.
“Why did you have to come to me with a message? Where is she?” I asked, narrowing my eyes at him.
“She left to spend the weekend in her friend’s pack. She said, she will see you next week, when umm—” he replied, stopping mid-sentence uncomfortably.
“When?” I asked, already figuring what my sister would have said.
“When you are in a better mood…” he replied, trailing off in the end.
“Did she mention anything else?” I asked.
“She requested for you to attend the Moon Festival at the Silver Crescent Pack.” He replied. I sighed nodding my head. No matter how I feel, I can’t neglect my duties as an Alpha.
“Let me go get ready,” I said, turning to leave for my room. “Toby, you are coming with me, and please ask for someone to clean my room after we leave,” I ordered.
“Sure thing, Alpha,” he replied, running off to his wing.
I walked into my room, and as I predicted. I had destroyed everything in my anger. I ignored the mess I created and took a quick shower. I grabbed a pair of dark blue denim and a white button-down shirt. I wore them quickly and walked out of the packhouse.
I saw my car parked and my Beta sat in the driver’s seat, waiting for me. I got in the passenger seat and started our journey to the Silver Crescent Pack.
MiracleIt was time for the mating ball; I tried to keep myself calm and not think much about it. I grabbed the blush pink dress my mother had brought me for the mating ball. It was rare for me to get new clothes, and it surprised me she got me one. Then I found out that there were Alphas from neighboring packs visiting, and I realized it was just to keep face in front of the guests.I sighed as I got a hold of the makeup Malia had given me to cover up my bruises. I didn’t even know much about using it, but I knew I had to make sure my bruises and wounds are hidden if I wanted to have some peace this evening. I got to work applying the makeup on my face and neck. I did pretty well in hiding them. The only bruises I wasn’t able to hide were the nasty burn in my hands.‘You should let everyone see your bruises. It will at least save us from here.’ Mia said, I could feel her anger and hate towards our family.‘Y
MiracleAs soon as I entered the garden, I bumped into a wall. I was confused because I didn’t remember the garden having a wall before. It was an open space. I looked up to find a pair of cold blue eyes staring at me. This man that I bumped into had a pair of mesmerizing eyes that pulled me in their depths.He had a powerful aura surrounding him. I think he might be one of the guest alphas. The thought made my eyes widen in fear. I immediately took a step back, scared I would do something to offend our guests. He looked at me with what looked like confusion in his eyes?“I am sorry Alpha, I wasn’t looking where I was going,” I murmured, bowing my head in respect.“It’s alright, just be careful next time. It’s not good to be clumsy, you can hurt yourself.” He replied in his deep, crisp voice, making a shiver run down my spine. Did he really have to be so rude? I did say I was sorry, right? I thought, mentall
Miracle I woke up in a dark room. I blinked my eyes a couple of times to adjust to the darkness. I looked around to find myself in the room they gave me to sleep in the packhouse. I feel confused trying to recall what happened, and why I feel like a truck ran over my body. I mean, I know I was beaten and bruised, but at the moment, I felt worse than I have. I tried to get up in a sitting position on the bed, but I couldn’t move. I hissed in pain but will myself to move. Groaning, I sit up on the bed and as soon as I did the lights turned on making me close my eyes at the sudden brightness. “You finally decided to wake up?” I heard my father’s angry voice and my head in his direction in fear. “I—” I start, but stop short of words. I don’t know what to say. I didn’t even know what I did to get into trouble this time. I looked up to see both my parents glaring down at me. I try to recall what happened, but I can’t seem to remember anything. The o
Christopher We arrived at the Silver Crescent Pack, but for some reason, my wolf has been restless. I don’t know what it is, but I feel there is something terribly wrong. I tried to ignore it and focus on attending the Mating Ball. I don’t want to poke in their business unless they are doing something terrible. The Alpha welcomed us, who seem very nervous in my presence. I know, I have a strong aura and I try to suppress it as much as I can, but did he have to make it so obvious? He is an Alpha, and he lets others see his emotions. It is not a good sign for an Alpha. They immediately took us to the guest house. They had tried their best to make it comfortable for all their visitors, so I commend them for it. After a shower, I changed and made my way out to find my Beta waiting for me at the door. “Alpha, do you also feel it?” He asked, looking around. “Do you feel something?” I asked, not bothering to answer his question. “I feel somet
Miracle “NO!” I screamed, my heart still aching from the agonising pain of rejection. I know he didn’t use the words to reject me, but for some reason, it feels like he is rejecting me. “Why can’t you recognise me as your mate?” I asked, looking at him with tear-filled eyes. “I can smell my mate’s scent, and I know it’s not you,” he said, looking at me with his hate-filled eyes. I felt something break inside of me. “Please,” I pleaded pathetically, looking at him with hopeful eyes, “I swear I am your mate. She is not,” I added as tears rolled down my cheeks. “I am sure Malia has tricked you. She can’t be your mate, please, please trust me.” I begged for my mate to listen to me. “Why are you so hell bent on proving that I am trying to steal your mate?” Malia asked. For the first time, she looked pitiful, and I knew it was all an act. She was desperately trying to prove in front of everyone that I was trying to frame her. “How can you ev
Miracle I feel empty inside. I am completely broken. There is nothing left of me anymore. I knew I wouldn't come out of this alive. I know the punishment of trying to hurt a fellow pack mate. No one believed me before, then why would they believe me now? I won’t try to prove myself innocent anymore. There is nothing for me to live for. However, there is one thing that I know I want to do before I leave this world, and that was to prove I wasn’t lying about Jake being my mate. My thoughts were interrupted when I heard Mia whimper in my head. ‘I am sorry, Mia,’ I whispered. ‘I know you don’t deserve this, but you are stuck with a useless human like me. I hope the Goddess gives you a second life, and you get a partner you deserve.’ I continued. I was heartbroken because I couldn’t save her, no matter how much I tried. She was suffering with me, and will probably die with me too. ‘None of this is your fault, Miracle,’ she replied in a low whisper. ‘Don’t
Christopher Last night was uneventful. My wolf has been restless from the moment we arrived in this pack. I wanted nothing more than to return home, but I had business to take care of. If someone was using magic, it is dangerous not only for this pack but for the entire werewolf species. Toby was out to gather information. I knew it wouldn’t be long before he came back. I spent the morning training to keep myself occupied. It was after lunch when I returned to the guest house to find Toby anxiously pacing in my room. I frowned at the look of worry on his face. I walked in, closing the door behind me. He stood straight the moment he saw me enter. I sat on the couch, motioning for him to sit beside me. “Alpha, I have all the information you needed, and you will not like what I found out.” He said as soon as he sat on the chair beside me. I was about to ask him to spill it already, but the knock on the door stopped me. “Come in,” I called out. So
Christopher‘MATE!’ Trent screamed in my head, making my eyes widen in shock. I couldn’t stop the possessive growl that sounded from my chest as my mouth uttered the words “MINE!” making everyone gasp in shock.Miracle looked at me with wide eyes. It was clear she knew, and I wondered how he felt the mate bond with either of us when she had no wolf. What kind of twisted game was the Moon Goddess playing with us? Why would she give me another mate when she knows I can’t love her?“Impossible,” Alpha stone growled. His loud voice got my attention. “She can’t be your mate. My son never accepted her rejection.” He growled. I know he was trying to save face because his son was rejected in front of everyone for being dumb. I did not miss the way he was glaring at Miracle.“If you don’t remember Alpha Stone. We all heard that your son had rejected the bond with his mate even when he di
