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 something is terribly wrong in this pack. Like someone has used magic,” he replied, confirming my doubts.
“I feel it too,” I replied, looking at him.
“Keep your eyes and ears open. We don’t want to interfere or ask about anything unless we are sure.” I said, and he silently nodded his head in agreement.
“Let’s go,” I said, walking out of the guest house.
“Alpha Mills, this way please,” I heard someone say. I could tell from his aura that he must be a Gamma. I silently nodded, following him to the largest building in the pack. This must be the packhouse.
This pack isn’t huge, so it was easy to identify which building is what. He took me to the back where the Mating Ball was held. I could see all of their pack was present, and it is a good thing to have the entire pack take part in events like these.
I could also tell that they had invited a lot of neighboring packs and their Alphas because the space was filled with people. Soon, I heard their Alpha greeting and welcoming everyone. I tuned out his speech until I heard a girl speak up.
“Alpha, my sister can’t fight as you know she doesn’t have a wolf.” She said, interrupting their Alpha. My eyes zeroed in on her as she said the words with somewhat of a satisfactory smirk?
The entire area burst into whispers and I could clearly hear the words of the pack members, they were filled with hate for the said person without a wolf. I was curious, and I wanted to find out about this wolf-less girl.
My eyes found her, her eyes closed with pain reflecting all over her face. I felt a weird ache in my chest, and I don’t know why, but I was affected to see this girl in pain. What confused me more was how her pack thinks she doesn’t have a wolf, but I could sense her wolf.
This just confirms my suspicions. This girl had a powerful aura surrounding her, but she looked weak, as if they drained her of her energy. Her sister, on the other hand, had a normal aura surrounding her. However, she looked strong and confident.
‘I want all the information on these two girls,’ I mind linked my Beta, Toby. I didn’t have to explain which girls I was talking about. He knew me too well.
‘Yes Alpha,’ he replied over the mind link. I know my Beta will make sure we have all the information we need. I only have to talk to their Alpha, informing him I will extend my stay in his pack for a few more days.
I was getting tired of watching all the wolves fight. I know this was nothing but a show of power from the Alpha, that his son was the strongest wolf in his pack. His son Jake is an Alpha born, so he was born to be the strongest in the pack. If he really wanted to show his strength, he should have involved the other packs and made him fight the other pack Alphas.
That would have been the real strength test for his son instead of hyping him up for no reason. I could see his son was as arrogant as he was. I wasn’t even looking at his fight; I was more focused on watching the she-wolf from earlier fight. She defeated female warriors with stronger auras.
‘Something is off, I sense magic.’ My wolf Trent appeared in my head. We haven’t spoken a lot since our mate’s death and to hear his voice in my head almost feels weird.
‘I know, but I don’t know for sure about magic. Magic is forbidden for years, and I don’t think any pack will take the risk of using magic because they could get killed for it,’ I replied.
‘I am sure someone here is using magic and hurting someone.’ He said. The way he was so sure increased my worry. If what Trent said is true, I cannot let that happen. As an Alpha, it’s my responsibility to protect everyone.
‘We will find out soon, don’t worry.’ I said, trying to calm my wolf down. I have faith in my Beta and I know he will have the information we need soon.—-------------
I had walked out, not able to sit inside and watch the meaningless fight. I walked in the garden breathing in fresh air, trying to calm both myself and Trent. It seemed to put us at ease. I decided to go back in and retire for the night, but on my way, I bumped into the said wolf-less girl.
She looked up at me confused, and soon as she saw me her eyes widened. She seemed to be deep in thoughts but soon I saw fear in her eyes. Was she scared of me? I mean, I know most of these pack wolves are, but her fear looked different.
“I am sorry Alpha, I wasn’t looking where I was going,” she murmured softly as she bowed her head in respect.
“It’s alright, just be careful next time. It’s not good to be clumsy, you can hurt yourself.” I replied, and she shivered. It made me wonder if she was cold or afraid.
I narrowed my eyes, trying to solve the mystery behind this girl that had me restless, but I couldn’t figure anything out. I simply nodded my head at her before walking back to the arena. As soon as I walked in, I saw Toby waiting for me.
“Alpha, I informed Jake and his father that we’ll be extending our stay in their pack for a few days.” He said as soon as I stopped in front of him. This is why he is my Beta. He knows me extremely well and makes sure everything is done as I want.
“Great, let’s return to the guest house and call it a night. I want you to get me more information on those two girls and this pack tomorrow.” I replied, and he nodded his head as we made our way to the guest house.
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
MiracleNever in life did I ever think I would have the courage to reject my mate the way I did. I rejected him in front of his pack and the other visiting Alphas, but what was even more was what happened next. A sweet, masculine scent hit me. It smelled of woods and rain.My eyes widened when I met the mesmerizing eyes that pulled me in. He was one of the visiting Alpha’s, and the way he growled “MINE!” a shiver went down my spine. Mia was howling in my head shouting ‘MATE’ as she ran in circles happily in my head.He looked confused and deep in thought until Alpha Stone had called for his attention. I felt sadness consume me when I didn’t see any emotion in my mate’s eye. Which Alpha would want a weak girl as his mate?‘Don’t worry, Miracle, I am sure our mate would love us,’ Mia whispered in my head.‘He doesn’t look happy,’ I replied, and she sighed sadly.&lsq
MiracleI woke up feeling pleasurable sparks around me. I blinked my eyes, trying to clear my vision, and saw my mate looking at me. His eyes still held no emotions and were as cold as ice. His arm was wrapped around my waist as he supported my body to not let me fall.I look around to find myself in the backyard. It seems like I haven’t been unconscious for long because everything looked the same. My eyes found Malia’s body as it laid on the stage. No one bothered to check if they could save her.I couldn’t help the sadness I felt in my heart. I wanted her to get punished so she could realize her mistake, but I never wanted her to die. I tried to move forward, but the hold on my waist tightened.“Are you okay?” My mate’s voice got my attention. I turned to look at him and nodded my head.“Ma— Malia,” I stuttered. My throat felt dry, but I was able to turn my head and look at my sister, hoping t
Christopher Alpha Stone was a grade A-asshole. He knew the consequences of trying to mess with me, but he still tried everything he could to be able to punish Miracle. My warning was enough for him to shut up. He knew if I said something, I would do it no matter what. It would have been to watch him get insulted in front of the elders while he freaked out about my attack. Miracle, however, seemed shocked at my words. Did she think I would have left her alone here to die? Even if she wasn’t my mate, I would have never let her die for something she didn’t do. The dumb Alpha then announced that Malia would be punished as per law. He took his anger on the girl by killing her instantly. It was the cheapest thing he could have done to soothe his ego. The moment he snapped Malia’s neck, Miracle screamed in horror. What surprised me more was the way Malia’s body glowed, and soon it felt like there was some sort of exchange happening. The light from her body t
Miracle As soon as we walked out of the packhouse, my mate let go of my hand. I instantly missed the warmth his big hand provided me. He opened the door for me to get in the back. Once I was in, he walked around getting in from the other side while his Beta, who I now know is named Toby, sat in the driver's seat. It was weird sitting beside such a godly handsome man, and what made it even worse for me was his scent. His scent filled the car, letting me consume a bit of it every time I was breathing. I tried not to make a move in fear of getting his attention, but it was getting harder and harder with every passing second. Something inside me kept bugging me to toss my face in his direction and take a good look at him, but that would make me look desperate, so I kept my spine erected. Toby did not wait for another second, and put the car in drive the moment we were settled in. We fell into an awkward silence, and I didn’t know how to start a conversati
