I cough, making my ribs hurt. My wolf is trying to help me heal quickly, but since we don't shift as much as the others, my healing is not as good as other wolves.
I get up to my feet with so much difficulty, but she kicks my legs, and I fall back down. She puts her heel over my neck, and I close my eyes, waiting for the worst."What I have to do is press a little harder, and I can take you out of your misery," She says. My heart is beating so fast, and my wolf is growling even though she can't fight back in this situation. Chalo has a strong fighting spirit and has given it to me, but I know when to quit, and she doesn't. I don't want to die.My wolf, Chalo, resurfaces, and, using her strength, I kick Eunice in the legs. She is on the ground. Those weak stupid bitch minions of hers scream, scared, but no one tries to stop me. Anger courses through me. I feel the adrenaline pumping through me, and I hover over her, punching her face repeatedly. Soon, the men that were training surrounded us. Others were cheering while others are watching silently, but Eunice only barks and has had no bite since we were young.A tingling sensation rushes down my skin as I feel myself being lifted off Eunice's body by huge strong hands, but my wolf is not done with her yet, so I kick and scream."Let me fucking go!" I scream at whoever is carrying me away from there. I jump off the shoulder of the man who carried me and is ready to punch him in the face, but I'm taken back to see it is Amos. He looks so sexy in his basketball shorts, his hair is disheveled, and goddamn it, his chest is as hot as fuck. I can see his muscular body, and I swallow thickly. Seeing that I'm staring, he smirks at me, and I blush involuntarily, looking away from him."Causing trouble, Omega?" He says in an angry voice."She came at me first!" I retorted."You'll be punished for what you did. Do you know who she is?" He growls, pushing me against the tree. I wince at the pain in my back. He wraps his hand around my neck and chokes me."She's your fucking Luna," he grits.I try to hit him, but he doesn't let go. It's like hitting a wall. He finally lets me go, and I fall to the ground, inhaling as much air as I can.He crouches down next to me and looks at me with a softness I've never seen before while I glare at him. His eyes are a shade darker, and I know he is linking with someone. He clears his throat and orders."You will be locked in the dungeon for the coming days," I widen my eyes in horror."But she started it!" I croak, I've been in the dungeons a few times, and It's not a place I like to be. It's dark and scary, and the guards there are the most immoral while they beat the offenders. They sexually assault women they like. It has happened to me a few times. I wasn't raped thank goodness.He stands up to leave but turns to look at me, "Before I forget, I Amos Rivers, reject you, Anaiah Ross, as my mate and future Luna."I was in shock, and his words kept repeating in my head. I didn't say anything or even react. Amos was my mate. He's twenty-four years old, so he knew all along that we were mated but watched them beat and abuse me.Amos is standing over me with no emotions on his face, no remorse whatsoever."Guards!"A few guards ran to us, bowing before the Alphas. Behind them, Eunice is there too, her eyes are red, and her perfect blonde hair is disheveled. Her plastic face has cuts, and she has a busted lip. She comes to stand next to the Alpha and whispers something in his ears, and after a long thought, he nods his acceptance."Lock her up, whip her every day until I say no more," Her voice is smooth as she orders, but my eyes are fixed on my mate. A sting on my cheek brings me back to the present, and I touch my cheeks. Suddenly, tears fall, and I don't have the chance to wipe them. Strong huge hands grab my arms and drag me a few feet away from the two couples. Once in the dark dungeon, they throw me to the ground like a sack of potatoes, and they exit the room. I feel it, my chest constricts, and a fire within me burn terribly. I let out a sob for the first time in forever. I cry for the horrible life I've lived since I was thirteen years old, for my parents, their abandonment, their hate, and, lastly, for Amos, my mate. I thought when I found my mate, he would love and protect me as a mate should, but today, he's taken away all my will to fight, my wolf withdraws to the dark part of my mind, and I howl, feeling more alone than ever.Days passed by fast, and every day, the guards came to wipe me with very painful lashes. My back had cuts and tears of flesh on it. I bet I looked disgusting. I am only allowed one meal a day; bread and water. I haven't felt Chalo since our mate rejected us.
She is depressed and sad like me. I get up from the cold floor and clutch my chest as I say the words."I, Anaiah Ross, accept your rejection, Amos Rivers," I don't feel the bond breaking on my side, however, Amos will feel the bond tear between us and will experience pain like no other.
Amos's POV I was welcoming our guests for the renewal treaty celebration when something tugged on my heart. Something was wrong. My wolf Narcisse was giving me a hard time, growling and snarling at me. There are times he acts sick. He hates me, and I rejected our mate, but I can't accept her as my mate, especially my Luna. She killed my uncle. 'In self-defense!' Narcisse growls. 'No one believes her,' I retort. My uncle was a bastard, but he was still my family. She could have dealt with the situation better than killing him in cold blood. 'She was fucking thirteen years old! She had no control over her wolf, Amos. I can tell that her wolf is strong,' he says the last part proudly. Indeed, my uncle had Alpha blood and was one of the strongest wolves, but she still bested him. Anaiah Ross is not only the most beautiful girl in the pack but even behind her dirty clothes, she can make any man bow to his knees. She has endured so many hardships since she was a little girl. 'She can m
Unknown's POV I didn't want to come to this poor excuse of a pack, but it was my duty as a Lycan King to attend, so I did. The Dawnrise pack isn't the strongest or wealthiest, but they are doing well for themselves and have survived this far because of their alliances. However, the Alpha and Luna are not the most intelligent of the pack, but oh well, at least they are leading to the best of their abilities. Once the celebration begins, they announce they will pass down the Alpha title to their son, Amos. He's a strong wolf and might even be more capable of leading than his parents. Amos walks on stage with a she-wolf by his side, she has a huge smile plastered on her face, and I assume she's his Luna. The outgoing Alpha briefly gives a speech, he acknowledges my presence, and people applaud. Amos is then called on stage and says his vows. "I, Amos Rivers, will lead this pack, fair and to the best of my abilities," He continues, and together they join their hands, and the transf
Leondre's POV I took my mate to the pack house hospital. I lay her on the bed, and the doctors asked me to leave the room, but I didn't do it. I'm not leaving her side, ever. My Beta comes to my side, putting a hand on my shoulder. I'm sure the people who were there informed him about the situation."Is that the Luna?" he asks, looking at the girl on the bed. The doctors attending her look wary of me because my Alpha aura is going crazy, but I can't help it. They were torturing her."My Ki-king, I think you should... um, leave. You won't want to see this," A tall nurse speaks in a stutter."She's right, and already the doctors can't do their job well. Your aura is imposing," Dan says. I shake my head. I want to see what they did to her."No,"The doctors turn her on her belly and tear her already torn shirt. My Beta gasps. I repress a growl and clutch my fist. Her back is red and bloody. They have been hitting her. Some cuts are so deep and unable to heal themselves. I move closer to
Leondre's POV I woke up at 10 am, shower, and went to Amos's office. I didn't wait to hear a come-in before I entered. I find him sitting in his chair. The former Alpha and Luna are on the couch with two other men. They all get to their feet at my arrival and bow. We exchange pleasantries, and I take a chair in front of the new Alpha. "I found my mate in your pack," I inform him. From the looks on their faces, it seems they already knew. Amos knit his eyebrows in interest while the other people in the room cheer forcibly as if they were wary. "I found her in the dungeon, being molested by your guards," I say, repulsed. Amos's face shows anger and fury as I continue to tell them. A growl rips from his chest, and he hits his desk, breaking it in half. "I'll kill them," he declares. "Already did," I grin sarcastically. "What happened? Why was she locked up?" I asked, looking into his eyes, and he fidgeted uncomfortably. I believe it has something to do with him. He swallows thi
Anaiah's POVI slowly lift my gaze as the most enticing scent of vanilla and honey fills my nostrils, my breath gets caught in my chest, and I forget how to breathe. The man walking in front of me is tall and intimidating. He's the most gorgeous man I've ever seen. He has thick jet-black hair, blazing dark blue eyes, a prominent face with high cheekbones, and a muscular body that looks like a Greek god. As soon as he entered the room, he dominated it immediately, and a wince escaped my lips. He smiles ever so gently once he nears me, and my heart skips.My wolf is saying something frantic, but I can't hear her. I'm still in awe of him."Hello, Love," His voice is deep and huskily sexy. I just watch him like an idiot. No words are leaving my mouth."Anaiah," He whispers my name, his eyes looking at me with love. My name sounds so good on his tongue, and a shiver runs down my spine. He cups my face, and tingles run down my body. 'Mate,' I hear my wolf chant, not fucking again. I shake m
Anaiah's POV"Get away from my mate," As soon as the growl tears from Amos's chest, Leon is in front of him, growling. I gasp when he grabs and backs him into a wall. I see Alpha being lifted off the ground by the powerful King. I get out of bed and rush to them, placing a hand on my mate, and my gesture seems to soothe him. He lowers him down with a growl. As the two stare down, I can tell the difference in strength, even though they look like they are about to tear each other apart.Amos is the first to break eye contact. He bows subtly to his King. He turns to me and raises a hand to touch my cheek, but a growl stops him mid-way. "How are you?" Amos's voice is soft like never before, and I'm surprised by the change of attitude. My wolf snarls at him and says something snarky. I don't answer him, instead holding my Lycan's hand."I want to rest now. Do you want to lie next to me?" I ask gently, and Leondre smiles, his eyes shining. He nods eagerly. I feel bad because I'm using him
Leondre's POVAfter Dan finished telling me what that woman did to my mate, I was fuming with anger. I went to Amos's office and demanded justice for Ana. I won't let anyone hurt her without any consequence."Who do you think you are barging in here like that again?" He demands, his fist clenched"I am your King. Someone attacked my mate, and I want them punished now," I demand from him. He looks startled and takes a step back. "Who hurt her?" "Find out, and I want to hear her screams," I say, leaving the office after he nods. I don't immediately go to my mate. I decide to do some work that I have been putting off, however, I can't seem to get the picture of how I found my mate out of my head. She has endured so much at the hands of everyone here.'She's a fighter,' says my Lycan. Indeed, that she is. I allowed myself to smile while I picked up my phone to call my sister. "Hello, Leon," My little sister Arya greets. "Hey," We exchanged pleasantries before announcing to her I foun
Anaiah's POV I'm sitting at the edge of a cliff. I sigh as I look at the ground. If I decide to throw myself down, no one will miss me. I can end it all in a heartbeat. 'What about Saga and Leondre?' I scoffed, " You've only known him for three days, and you're already attached? Don't hold your breath for him,' I answer my wolf. 'He loves us!' 'No one loves us, they always end up hating us. Do you even realize that our second chance mate is the Lycan King? The most powerful man in the werewolf world. I am just an Omega, abused and hated by everyone. What if his pack is even worse than this one,' I say, angry tears running down my face. Gosh, I hate to cry. 'They will accept us because he did,' she says calmly. 'We can't be sure. I refuse to be hurt again,' I will keep my guard up, or maybe leave him and become rogue. I can't trust him too. While I'm in a conversation with my wolf, a beautiful woman appears in front of me. She's shining in holy light, and I can barely lo
