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. Soon a warrior from this pack walked in, bowing his head respectfully.
“I am sorry to disturb you, Alpha. Alpha Stone has requested the presence of all our important guests for a pack gathering. He is going to announce the punishment for a pack member who broke the rules.” He conveyed the message. I nodded, dismissing him, and turning to look at Toby.
“Fuck!” he cursed internally, before he looked at me with worry filled eyes. “Alpha, we need to hurry up before they do something stupid.” He added. I couldn’t question him. The urgency in his voice said it all.
“Let’s go,” I said, and we walked out of the guest house, making our way to the backyard. We could hear the whispers confirming it was where the gathering was held.
We walked in. Alpha Stone stood at the door welcoming me and a few other Alpha’s before he escorted us to our seats. I wanted to ask him what was happening, but he scurried away before giving any of us a chance to ask him anything.
‘Alpha, no matter what happens, we have to save this girl. She is innocent.’ Toby sent me a mind link. I looked in the direction he was looking to see the girl from yesterday.
“Dear pack members, I am grateful to have all of you present here on such short notice.” He said. His loud voice echoed through the backyard.
“This girl, Miracle, our Beta’s younger daughter, has committed a crime.” He looked at her as he said that, “She tried to play with the mate bond created by our Moon Goddess, and when she didn’t have it her way, she tried to kill my mate with the silver dagger here.” He accused, motioning for a warrior beside the girl who I now know was named Miracle, who showed him a dragger.
“How do you know it was her?” I heard a voice. I turned to see Toby asking the question, and I knew if he was interrupting there has to be a reason. I could see the irritation in Jake’s eyes for being interrupted.
“I felt my mate’s pain when she was attacked by her. When we reached there, she had the silver dagger in her hands while she tried to attack my mate again.” He replied, and I looked at him, squinting my eyes, trying to find out if he was lying, but I realized he wasn’t.
“We all know the rules, use of silver is prohibited in our world. She wasn’t even supposed to keep a silver dagger with her. We have always believed in living peacefully with each other, but she has broken that rule as well. She has attempted to kill her sister who happens to be my mate and Luna.” He added. The backyard burst into whispers from his words.
“Banish her,” someone screamed through the crowd.
“Keep her chained in the dungeon with silver,” another said, and soon everyone was shouting with what seemed to be a fitting punishment.
“Silence!” Alpha Stone screamed, and the crowd went silent.
“Only my son may decide a fitting punishment for this thing here,” he announced as he looked at her as if she was trash.
“Jake, please tell us what the punishment will be for your prisoner,” he said, turning to look at his son.
“There is no other punishment good enough for this woman. We have always followed the laws in our pack, and according to the werewolf law, she is sentenced to death for illegally using silver and attacking her sister.” Jake announced. The pack burst into loud cheers as if it was a joyful event.
Wait! Is this how they decide the punishment for someone? They won’t even give her a chance to defend herself? No one would try to investigate the truth? This pack has the worst leadership ever.
“I accept the punishment, Alpha Jake, but I have something to say.” The girl said, staring into Jake’s eyes with confidence. Her words made my eyes widen in shock and surprise, and before anyone could react, she snatched the silver dagger from the warrior beside her. Everyone was surprised. I guess no one thought she would pull a stunt like that.
She looked at her sister and smiled at her horrified expression. I thought she was going to attack her sister, but I was left speechless when I saw what she did. Instead, she stabbed the silver dagger in the wound she had on her arm. I felt my knots form and twist painfully in my stomach.
She screamed out in pain, and screaming with her was Alpha Stone’s son Jake. Looking at everyone’s expression, it was clear no one expected this little girl to do something like this. Her sister, the said soon-to-be Luna and mate of Jake, looked pale. It was clear that she was caught.
“Make it stop!” Jake gasped out, and someone removed the dagger from the girl’s arm, making them scream more. It fucking hurt to see her in so much pain. I wondered what was happening to me.
“Alpha Jake, I think that is enough proof for you to know I am your mate. If you don’t trust me, please scratch your beloved Luna and see if you feel anything.” She said, Her voice sounded weak, and I felt a weird pain in my chest.
“Hold her,” Alpha Stone ordered, and a few warriors immediately captured her sister. He pulled out his claws, scratching her arm. The girl Malia was screaming her guts out, but Jake was unaffected. Jake’s eyes widened at the realization, and I had to stop myself from laughing. The cocky Alpha let himself get duped by a cunning woman.
Jake looked at Miracle. His eyes somewhat held regret, but I wanted to kill him for being so blind, and punishing an innocent pack wolf.
“Remember, you said you would never accept someone as useless as me as your mate? I am telling you, I would never accept an Alpha who could get blinded by others and do injustice to his own people.” She said, her voice held determination, and I suddenly felt relief?
I heard the surprised gasps of the pack members from behind while Alpha Stone gave her an icy glare. I felt anger rushing into my veins. I wanted nothing more than to snap his head for looking at the girl the way he did. His son was at fault here, not the girl.
“I, Miracle Payne, reject you, Alpha Jake Stone, as my mate and Alpha. I reject your pack, and the role of their Luna.” The moment she finished the words of rejection, I gasped, holding my chest as a sweet scent hit me with full force.
‘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.
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
MiracleI felt someone shaking me awake, and I groaned in response. It felt like I was able to get a peaceful sleep after a long time, but someone was ruining my peace. Annoyed, I opened my eyes, blinking them to clear my vision, and came face to face with my mate.The irritation of being woken up from a peaceful slumber washed away after having a glimpse of his handsome face. Although he still didn't have any emotions on his face, I didn't mind staring at his godly features.The moment he knit his brows, my eyes widened, making me feel like I was being too creepy to peer at him without blinking my eyes. I tried to sit up straight but groaned, feeling my stiff neck. I must have been sleeping in that position for way too long.Sparks erupted around my neck, making me shiver in response. I found him pressing his fingers on my neck as he massaged it lightly. The little gesture was enough to warm my heart. So that was what had made the dead butterflies come t
MiracleBreena had dragged me into her room as soon as she possibly could. I didn't complain because being around my mate had kind of restricted my muscles as I was constantly trying to not mess up in front of him. She was really cheery and excited about this whole situation. I looked around to see her room, and to be honest I love it. It was made for a beautiful little princess like her.“You have a beautiful room, Breena.” I complimented with a polite smile on my face. I was watching her room and noticed how comfortable it must be to sleep here at night.“Thank you, mom had this room made for me especially. She would always make sure that I have everything I could ever need.” She replied, a sad smile on her face appeared as her eyes filled with unshed tears, and her voice thickened with emotions. My heart twisted painfully in my chest.“I am sorry for your loss, Breena. I know what it’s like to not have your parents w
Miracle I don’t know how long it has been, but I feel empty inside. Mia has been whimpering in my head. I know she feels the same pain I do, but she says Trent says he wants us. However, I have decided that I wouldn’t hope for anything now. Hope doesn’t do any good, it only breaks you further. I am surprised I am still breathing after I heard his words yesterday. The moment he walked away, I wailed like a little child trying to cry my eyes out and forget about any pain I have, but sadly the pain only increased with each passing second. I don’t have any more tears left. I cannot feel anything, and I have decided I was not going to be on his way. He wanted to secure his pack, and he did. Although, he broke my heart in the process, and probably to the extent that it may never be fixed again. I wanted to blame him for the pain and misery he brought me, but I couldn’t. My own family didn’t want me because I was weak, then why would someone as powerful as h
