Violet's POV"I guess luck is keeping a distance from you because I don't understand why Jake has to be your mate". Kimberly said as I came down from the treadmill. We were at the gym. My mind has been bugging me since that episode at the café earlier today; I couldn't even utter a single sentence. "But what if you and Jake were really fated to each other, what if your wolf weakens because of the rejection of your mate, what if…""Let's go get some ice cream" I said immediately trying to change the subject. Ice cream always works out as Kimberly is now skidding her way through the gym doors. I really don't have the answers to those questions.…"Smells like mac and cheese" I noted as I took a whiff of the kitchen. Mum surely did wonders again, to me my mum was the best cook ever and anyone who has tasted her dishes can testify. "Change your clothes first before entering my kitchen" my mum spanked my butt as she sneered. Alright I grumbled but not before sticking my tongue at my mum. A good relationship I always say is what I have with my mum. You may also call it priceless. I opened the door to my room and saw Yellow on the bed sleeping peacefully, she's pregnant and I can't wait to see her cute little kittens.This has got to be the best mac and cheese I've tasted I told my mum as soon as I was done eating. She smiled but was not surprised because I compliment her cooking every opportunity I get. It's not every time I get to taste mum's cooking; she must've been in a good mood today. "I need to talk to you" my mum said as we both headed to the living room. "What is it mum?" I said with little or no interest as we both sat on the couch and allowed a comfortable silence to settle in. I hope it's not about taking over the company because...."Get married to Jake" my mum said quite bluntly.I get nervous when mum gets like this. Serious I mean. It means there is no room for discussion. To say I was dumbfounded is an understatement."You know how much we hate each other mum and moreover there's no way Jake is going to agree to this setup" I tried convincing. His parents will take care of him all you need to do is prepare to the most beautiful bride the pack has ever seen my mum said.…I couldn't sleep. I can't imagine life with Jake; he is never going to love me the way I wanted to be loved. I bet we are going to be sleeping in different rooms too. I picked up my phone and dialed Kimberly's number.The first dial,The second dial,The third dial,And she's still not picking. She's going to get an earful from me I said to my cat as I caress her fur.Kimberly POVClubbing is what I do for a living. I'm at the club right now as we speak, rocking any guy that cares to be rocked. It happened again. I fought with mum again. Ever since dad left us she has resulted in dating any gigolo she sees out there. They introduced her to smoking, drinking and she couldn't go a day without it. It took a lot of counseling from doctors to help my mum out of that depressed state my dad left her and now she wants to get married again!. I don't want mum to go through another failed marriage. I saw how broken she was when dad left and she only managed to put herself together even though It has not been easy.I excused myself from the dance floor as I headed to the bathroom. All those alcohol made me dizzy. I stared at my wet face in the mirror and all my defenses came crashing down. I began to sob slowly at first but it became louder without me even noticing. I sat down on the floor, knees bent and my head on my knees; I couldn't stop whimpering. Everyone just seems to be leaving me, my mate is dead, my dad left me and my mum for some other woman; I'm a complete mess.I staggered out of the club and went in search of where I parked my car. I felt the presence of someone or should I say the presence of a wolf. I turned back and saw two dirty brownish looking wolves. Rouge wolves. We were in a dark alley so humans couldn't see us. I could take down a wolf myself but two, I'm not so sure. The two rogue wolves attacked me immediately they saw I noticed their presence. I quickly changed into my wolf and blocked the wolf that was about to attack me. The second wolf jumped to attack me but I used my nails to leave a scratch on his face. While I was dealing with the second wolf, the first wolf gave me a really hard push to the corner. I'm sure I must have broken some ribs. The two wolves took advantage of my weakness and tried to attack but they suddenly stopped in their tracks. That's when I saw the biggest wolf I've ever encountered in my whole twenty two years of walking this earth; I don't think he's from our pack. The two wolves took to their heels on seeing my one and only savior. One doesn't need a soothsayer to know that this wolf could take down five opponents on his own, shredding them to pieces even. I guess they felt intimidated. My savior turned around to face me and stared at me for five seconds before he started walking towards me without removing his gaze from mine. It felt like he was studying me. I don't think I could get up, I needed help. He changed back in to his human form and to say I was embarrassed will not be the right word to express what I'm feeling. Seeing him standing there stark naked made my cheeks heat up in a way it had never did before. Not that I have not seen a man naked but this was different. He bent down and picked me up and walked towards his car. His hard chests were all that was on my mind and I didn't even know when he changed into a new set of clothes. He threw a shirt at me and went out of the car. I had a hard time changing because of the pain in my abdomen. I honked to let him know I was done changing."I'm taking you to the hospital"; that was his first word he uttered ever since our meeting and damn, he has a sexy voice. I think I'm in love. It was a very silent ride to the hospital and soon enough I found myself in dream land."Where is the young man that that brought me here yesterday?" I asked the nurse that came to check up on me. "He left yesterday after dropping you off and paying your bills" the nurse replied while writing something on the chart she was holding."Did he ask you to leave a message for me?" I asked the nurse. "He didn't" the nurse answered before turning her back to leave. There is no means of thanking him now. I have no information about him, Not even his name. I'm so disappointed.
Violet POVSeeing Jake sitting across me brings back memories about the days I was head over heels for this dude. His words and actions are the reason for whatever negative feelings I've built up for him over the years. Instead of the love and admiration I once had, it's now hate and nothing more than that.Now to the issue that brought me to Jake's office. We are discussing our marriage and Jake doesn't seem to be embracing the notion that I'm going to be Mrs Aloysius. But who cares, I might as well use this opportunity to get back at him, and there is always room for divorce any way."I can't believe you are in support of this marriage of a thing, you and I can't work, there is no way that is possible. Everyone knows the very sight of you disgust me; what more living in the same house and having to see your ugly face" Jake said to my utmost dismay. The last thing I want right now is someone calling me ugly. I have worked so hard to build my confidence and now this dude wants to crac
Jake's povThe plan was simple. Go let the family know that I'm in no way intrested in this marriage, not by words though, but by actions. I mean what parent will let a guy who has bad manners and lack of respect marry their daughter. Coupled with the fact that I detest their daughter ... I could already see the plan working as it plays in my head. I know that won't be enough to stop this marriage, but I'm sure I'll figure out something. With this thoughts I relaxed my heavy heart a bit. No way in this world will I betray Emily. My wolf, Zion growled at this. No one could hear him but I could. That's how werewolves are. Our wolves are separate from out human part. They have their own mind, can come out when the want to. But for the most part, our human side has more control over the body we shared.Right now I couldn't bother with Zion and the tantrums he keeps throwing because of the mate bond I rejected. I had other things to worry about, things like the marriage.Ever since the rej
Violet's povI'm so nervous right now. We've been waiting for Jake for the past thirty minutes now, you could see the impatient look on everyone's face. The nervousness was making my throat itch so I ordered some water. The only thing you could find on our table were the serviettes that was placed there before we arrived. We wanted the waiter to take our orders at once and Jake is the only one delaying.Forty three minutes into the waiting, Jake arrived." I'm sorry I came late, something came up at work" He said as he hurriedly took a seat.I looked at Jake for the second time since he arrived, and I could say he came here with the intention to give a bad impression. He was all sweaty, his hair all ruffled. The first three buttons were undone, creases could be seen all over his suit. He looked like he just came back from a fight." I thought I told you to clear all your schedules for tonight, and looked at the way you dressed for a formal dinner with you future..." "I'm sure he didn'
Kimberly POVThat really happened, woah, Jake really got some guts, I say to Violet on the phone. She narrated all that happened at the dinner and all I can say was that if this marriage is happening then these two are really fated for each other , cause knowing Violet's mum, her only child can't marry someone with a character like Jake. I feel so guilty but I can't tell Violet that I put her in this predicament. Sure they were still going to marry with or without the mate bond, but me telling their parents they were mates made them more intent on getting them married. If only I kept my mouth shut.I'll call you back I said to Violet after hearing the commotion downstairs." She's mine!, you get that!" I heard Max say to Josh, mum's fiancè. He really got some guts to show his face here after all he had done." Get out of my house max" my mum screamed as she shoved Max but he didn't budge, instead he kept reaching out for Josh.I stood there watching the drama unfold. I wasn't in suppor
"Do you plan on burning down the whole restaurant?" The manager asked as he pointed his finger to the burning dish."I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.""I know you didn't, your mind has been all over the place" the manager said as he took over from what I was doing. "You can take a day off if you want, just clear your head before you do something worse."I was grateful for the offer, but I rather work than go back to that tensed filled house."It's alright sir, I'll be more careful next time", I say to the manager who gave me a look before leaving the kitchen for me to handle.I'm working at a famous local shrimp restaurant downtown. I'm trying to learn how to make the jambalaya. I've been eager to learn it after a vacation Kimberly and I took to Louisiana. The stuff got me hooked. As simple as it looks it's quite hard to make a perfect one. I tried learning online recipes but it wasn't giving me the taste I needed, so here I am, stir frying veggies until I'm giving a chance to enter the ma
Author's POV"Master Kendrick" one of the guys said as they turned around to see where the voice came from." Let her go" the cold voice sounded through the quiet alley."But..." The black haired guy proceeded to say."She's not the one we're looking for."" The priestess said she's the one, are you saying she was lying?" The brown haired guy asked suspiciously." She made a mistake." Kendrick said as he walked slowly towards them with his hands behind his back. " Leave her alone and go back before you expose more than you should."" And what makes you think we'll listen to you?" The brown haired guy questioned. He had always hated Kendrick, so if it means killing Violet just so that he won't have to follow Kendrick's orders, then he'll do with it even without Violet being the one they were looking for." Are you challenging me?" Kendrick asked as he tilted his head slightly with a smirk etched on his lips." What if I am?"" Try me. "The black haired guy just stood at the side watch
Violet's POVMy mom is giving me weird looks right now. It's almost as if she's seen a ghost."I should have expected it" I hear my mum say.Expected what? I asked. I'm sure this is related to Kendrick and the witches. My mum looked me up and down as she checked for something on my body."Thank God they didn't hurt you" Now I'm sure this is related to the witches. She sure has a lot of explanations to render to me cause this is all too baffling, and in one night at that.Let's go in and talk mum. By now my mum had regained her normal poise and it seemed like the reaction from her earlier was all fake. But I know it wasn't fake. This is as real as it gets."They've really found me" my mum said as she stared at my body. I followed her line of sight and I saw the black blood that stained my clothes. Who are this "they" mum?"You don't need to know"Mum!I couldn't help the scream that came out when my mum tried to brush this off as nothing.I already know mum,and I suggest you trust m
Violet's POV"I'll tell you what that prophesy is, but before that you have to promise to get married to jake"What kind of request was that?. What does Jake has to do with me knowing my mum's past? Even if I agree, there is no way Jake will agree with this marriage.I looked at my mum and I saw how resolute she was, nothing could change her mind."Mum" I called out, "You know what you're asking for is impossible right? Even if I agree to this marriage, you certainly know that Jake wouldn't, you saw what he did that day, he is hellbent on not marrying me." I tried to make my mum to see reasons why her request was absurd, absolutely absurd."Leave that to me. He'll come to you himself." "But why mum? why Jake?""The weight of what I'm about to tell you is too heavy for your little shoulders to carry. You need someone strong by your side, someone like Jake""But Jake is a mere werewolf mum, there is only so much he can do even if he's the strongest wolf to ever be known"."There is muc
