'Who carried me to my room,' I inquired and she gave me a confused look for a second."Huh! You were in your room all night, Lourve.' She pointed out and I shook my head and persisted. "I came outside, all dressed up in a red gown and then, I met Ryan, then met this stranger…""You met Ryan,' she gasped, shifted the tray of food aside and got closer to me, holding both of my hands, "Listen, Lourve. I know about your feelings all along, that you've been in love with Ryan since you were a child, but you couldn't tell him about your feelings and I get that a lot. I understand you, it's not going to be easy to forget about him, but you have to do it, for your well-being. I love you as my sister, but I wouldn't like anyone treating you the way they did on that day, trust me. Forget about Ryan and move on, sis. Besides, he's not your mate and that's a good thing too, but you have to be careful." She stared at me lovingly and smiled, which made me chuckle."I thought you hated the word "Fate
I felt my knees go weak at that moment, and trembled at the sight of him, going all lovey-dovey with my step sister, Rihanna. The sister I adored so much with all my heart, that I will do anything for her, even to the extent of giving her my life no matter the circumstances, that's how much I love her, she had invariably been with me through thick and thin, when everyone renounced me, she was always there for me. When everyone turned their backs on me because I was an illegitimate child, she faced me and took my hand instead, ignoring people's gossip and rumors about me. She showed me that no matter what life throws at me, I should perpetually stand up for myself. She was eternally there for me when no one else was, she was my everything in this world, including my best friend and that jerk, Ryan. Tears streamed down my face, staring at the lovely couple cutting the engagement cake, Rihanna putting a ring on my mate's finger and my mate also did the same thing too, to her and I was
His gaze not leaving mine, I squeezed my fingers, crossed some of them keeping my posture. Was that the first word, he was supposed to be saying to me, I almost chuckled. "Yeah, I am and you must be my sister's fiance, am I right?' I inquired, telling almost the same words was kind of hilarious. "Yeah,' he nodded. "I am her fiance, we are getting married soon." He answered back. "That's…That's great news, I can see my sister loves you, for her to choose you as her husband,' I forced a smile. With every word he was spilling out of his mouth tearing me to pieces, my eyes were beaming just at those words he said to me. I couldn't even look him in the eye, to hide my face I had to look down at my blanket, it was embarrassing. I don't have to cry in front of him, he was my Mate but he wasn't mine but someone else and worse, it had to be my sister he was getting married to, why wasn't it someone else instead. Why was life so cruel? "She does love me,' he agreed. "I can see it from her e
"You are not any of those things, my dear,' she said softly. "I want to stop you, Lourve, but you are not letting me do that, you are against it, you don't want me to halt you." "I want to prove myself to the clan,'' I said. My voice began shaking and I could feel my eyes burning so much that a drop of tear fell from my face to the table. "Oh, Louvre,' Rihanna said, getting up from her seat, she came towards me and gave me a warm hug. "Oh, dear. I wish I could stop all this from happening, but you insist on letting you fight, I can't…" I shook my head. "Let me do this, sis." I wiped my eyes with the edge of my clothes and smiled at her. "I'm fucking nervous but I will get through this, trust me." Rihanna kissed my forehead and nodded at my decision. I felt my heart shattering into pieces at her comfort towards me. How will I tell her that I wasn't crying because I wanted to fight with Aries? It was part of it but not fully the reason but I was mainly mad at myself because my mate
It's been fucking an hour since Ryan told me about the visitors and Aries hasn't blinked ever since. I also told Rihanna that the Lycan King Cameron would be here tomorrow as early as possible for the combat battle and that she was expected to act as a host, she dropped the napkins from her hands, her face ghost white, and started squealing, 'oh my goodness' over and over. It took about thirty minutes to snap her out of it and I've been gently guiding her through all the preparations.The thing about Rihanna is, that although she wants help, she doesn't always want to know that you are helping. She wants to be a good Luna and have the admiration of the pack, but she doesn't have a clue on how to host, let alone a Lycan king. I mean, hell, I don't even know how to host a Lycan king.But I have been making little suggestionsquietly to Rihanna, based on what I've learned from my best friend, and she has been repeating them and learning them since she was the first daughter of the pack.
I was exhausted as I panted. "I want you, Aztec,' I softly muttered and tightly hugged my pillow to my chest, dreaming of his face all night long as I fell asleep. I woke up, feeling chilled items piercing through my skin as I jerked up from my sleep, rubbing my eyes and seeing Aries laughing. "Rise and shine, sleepy head.' She said, I sighed. "What was that for, are you crazy,' I snapped. "Are you nuts?" "Jeez, waking up in the daylight and throwing questions at me." "What are you doing in my room, are you stupid." I was greatly annoyed at how she interrupted my sleep, how dare she? "You are the stupid one here, everyone is beginning to gather for the combat to watch us fight and kill each other, while you are here sleeping with your naked smelling butt.' She chuckled. "Kill each other?' I frowned. Oh, right, the battle. "Yes, are you scared in your wits or were you dreaming of me struggling and snapping your neck into two." She tackled. "That will be so hilarious, trust me."
I threw my clothes on the floor, forcefully with anger. "I could have declined the battle, is that what you are saying to me, I can't believe you are saying these words to me. You were not around, you were on a vacation trip with your parents Woah, and laughing all over the place. While I was hit by a car which landed me in the hospital, guess what, my parents turned against me, calling me a weakling and Aries was making fun of me.' "You are talking like a child, for crying out loud." Elina put in. "I'm talking like a child huh! Do you know what I went through, they keep humiliating me and downgrading me in front of everyone, that I'm a pathetic loser,' I could feel my eyes welling up, it hurts. "They keep calling me an illegitimate child, a useless and a worthless Omega, and you said I could have rejected the combat after all that insult. How can I ever prove to this person that I'm not who they think they are…" "That's why you wanted to prove it to them, but it was wrong. You sho
"Are you insulting me?' My father roared. "I'm not insulting you, I'm just stating the fact, the fact that needs to be said between you and mom, this isn't our matter that needs to be solved in any other way, this needs to be between you guys and not us." "Shut your insolence,' my stepmother banged the table and stood up from her seat. 'Don't open your mouth and spill rubbish if you don't know anything about this matter, you shut up.' She yelled. "I don't know anything, am I such a dumb bimbo wolf that doesn't know anything, I'm not a kid and I've been hearing about this for ages, let this stop right now, I've had enough of it, come on, all this started when she wasn't even born yet.' She sarcastically uttered. "If you talk to me in such a manner again, I will give you a dirty slap across your face, if you don't behave yourself, who do you think you are to talk to me in such a manner, do you think I care about such people, you think I will be with you and this family if it weren't
