***Chastity***Working this party is hard now that I have found my mate, and I know that he will not be accepting me. I struggle to hold back the tears, and keep a smile on my face. I cannot make any mistakes tonight. I know if I do the punishment will be beyond anything I have experienced before. I can feel Aurora, Naomi, Gina, and Fiona’s eyes on me, watching my every move the whole night. I know they are waiting for me to make a mistake. Every once in awhile I catch sight of Braxton glaring at me as well, but I do my best to shut him out.I can say that I’m glad Alpha Rowen has not approached me, at all. I don’t know how I would handle it if he did. I do all I can to make sure I don’t try to look for him in the crowd either. I simply keep my head down, and continue to pour drinks for everyone. I am working along when I hear someone clear their throat, and I catch a familiar scent. One I haven’t smelled in 4 years. I peek up to see Jax standing there. He has a pretty gi
***Jax****I’m so confused about what is going on. I can’t seem to understand why my sister was not given the night off to celebrate my homecoming. Ross had called me, and told me what Braxton did to her. To say I was furious is an understatement. Seeing the healing bruises all over her face, and arms ignites that anger even more.That stupid pup just made a mockery out of our family. We are the Beta family, and we are expected to set an example to the rest of the pack on how to behave, and how to treat others. He showed everyone in this pack that it is ok to treat others, lower rank wolves, especially like trash. That it is ok to beat them, and disrespect them. The Omegas are the backbone, and care takers of every pack, and deserve to be respected, not beaten.To make it worse, he showed the pack that it is ok to disregard our law on hitting females. He showed it was acceptable to do such a thing because someone in the Beta family did it. He set an example that should have never been
***Chastity***With a whimper, I tried to open my eyes. I hurt every where. There wasn’t a part of my body that wasn’t riddled with pain. I couldn’t remember why though. The last thing I remember was coming out of the bathroom in the pack house then seeing Alpha Rowen.Oh yeah. That happened. As soon as I remembered his rejection I felt tears spill down my cheeks. I could hear Leila whimper in my head. I could tell she was curled up in a ball, shaking. My poor wolf. She didn’t deserve this pain.“Leila. Leila my sweet wolf. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry for all of your pain.” I called to her softly.She only whimpered, and did not respond. I imagined myself running my fingers thru her soft fur in comfort. I wanted to make sure she knew some one loved her no matter what. As I did this I tried to remember what happened after his rejection. Slowly it started coming back to me in flashes. Being hit, and voices screaming at me. I couldn’t pinpoint exactly what happened, or who had hit me this ti
***Dimitri***I closed the hospital door with a sigh, and leaned against it for a moment. The warrior Jax had at her door gave me a funny look, but said nothing. Honestly I was thankful Jax thought to do that. While Aurora, and the other 3 females were still locked in the dungeon, Braxton was not. More than once I heard him grumble about getting revenge for having his mother locked up. I knew Chastity was safer here, and under the watch of warriors. I hoped Jax kept warriors with her when she was released to go home later.I slowly started making my way out of the pack hospital, thinking about just saying her name. I hadn’t called my daughter by her name since the day I realized she was an Omega. She hadn’t deserved that. She didn’t deserve anything she has been put thru by any of us. Especially by me, my mate, and her son. Some how I needed to correct my mistakes, and make this up to her. I just hoped I could.I also found myself mulling over what Chastity had said about having a mat
***Dimitri***I spent several hours in my office just thinking. Mostly about Chastity. I thought of all the things Aurora told me she had done to the girl. It broke my heart that I had been so blind, and selfish to treat my daughter as I had. Also to allow others to treat her as they had. I was a terrible person, and a terrible father. She didn’t deserve anything she had been put thru, and it was all because of me. She was innocent. A baby, a child, but I opened the door to allow her abuse. Now I needed to figure out how to make it up to her.Eventually I opened my top right hand desk drawer, and pulled out the photo and folder I had been ignoring these past weeks. I set up the photo on my desk, then opened the folder. I read through everything, twice. I had no idea that despite what Chastity was experiencing at home she was a shining star. She was very intelligent, dedicated, and driven. According to all of her recommendations she was also caring, compassionate, and l
***Rowen***After leaving the living room I wandered around the house for awhile. What a hellish day it has been. Well maybe more to the point, what a hellish week it has been. This time last week I had been so excited to come home. To see my family, and my pack.I thought I’d come home to find everything wonderful, and nothing but joy. Now, well now there was a part of me that wished I had never come home. In what seems like the blink of an eye, everything went to shit. The excitement of finding my mate was destroyed upon discovering she was an Omega. To make it worse, she is my best friend’s baby sister. Oh, but the things that girl has lived through, especially in the last six years. Truthfully part of me feels guilty for her having to go thru those things. Hearing everything Aurora did to that poor girl made me sick to my stomach, and enraged me more than I have ever been in my life. I never knew anyone could be so horrible to another person, especially to a child.
***Chastity***Yesterday I was finally released from the hospital, after 6 days there. I still hurt, a lot, but Doctor Deb said I was healed enough to go home. She, again gave me care instructions, and food recommendations. I knew not to expect to be able to follow any of it. I did what I could not to get used to the three meals a day I’d been receiving as well. My mattress in the attic wasn’t really supportive enough for healing either. I appreciated her thoughts, but I knew I would be back to work the second I walked back into the house.I had been shocked when Beta Jax, and his mate Molly came to get me from the hospital. I know he’s my brother, but the rest of my family has turned their backs on me, so why he hasn’t is a mystery to me. The fact that he carried me from my bed to the wheelchair than from the hospital to the pack house made me very uncomfortable. He is a Beta while I’m only an Omega. He should not have been carrying me.In all honesty, everything that ha
***Chastity***Standing at the bedroom door was Alpha Rowen. The moment I saw him I knew I was in trouble. I didn’t know why he was here, but I was very scared. His sister, aunt, and chosen mate were being punished today because of me. I began to tremble, and squeezed my eyes together to try to stop the tears that sprung to my eyes. I did not want to cry in front of him again. I heard him sit down in the chair that Beta Dimitri had just left. I waited him to speak.“Good morning Chastity.” Rowen said after a minute of sitting there in silence.“Good…Good morning Alpha Rowen. What can I do for you today?” I responded quietly.“Many things, I think, but I would like to start with just a conversation. Is that alright with you?”“You are the Alpha sir, while I’m a just an Omega. Your word is law.”“You are so much more than that Chastity, aren’t you?”“I don’t follow sir.”“Before we go any further, I would like to ask two things of you, ok?”“Ye…yes sir.”“First, p
