As soon as I opened the door, my eyes saw the sight I wish I hadn’t seen. "What is going on here?” I asked through a shaky tone, tears burning my eyes and thankfully, blurring my vision. "Conrad!” the tears in my eyes spilled down when Selene got off him and laid beside him, completely bare. There was no shame or guilt on Conrad’s face even when I have seen him in bed with Selene. "Why? You were the one who told me that I am your mate, you told me th---at you---,” my throat went dry as I tried to finish speaking my heart. "That I love you?” he raised his brow, gently caressing her bare shoulder and running his finger down her chest, “I lied, okay?” the way his lips formed a smirk, I felt a used toy that he tossed aside once he was done with me. "Wh---y. I betrayed my coven for you an---d you betrayed me for her?” my voice broke, my eyes watching the girl pressing her lips against his neck and getting closer to him. "Cordelia! Close the door when you leave,” the tiredness in his voice when talking to me broke me piece by piece. -------------- Magic is forbidden in their world, but to get her blessed powers Cordelia has to perform a ritual for her ancestors’ blessings to come true.

It has been a few days since everything. Conrad has been all over me as I overexerted myself during the ritual. I have barely left the room. He gets me everything I would need. As sweet as it was, it was also a little annoying not being able to move or roam around. I am thankful to Uziel for getting Conrad off my back. He has called for a pack meeting and requested my presence. I hope everything is alright. He never really calls for meeting so suddenly. I sighed as I made my way to the meeting hall. I could see the room filled with pack members. Conrad and Uziel were standing on the makeshift stage at the end of the room. Conrad extended his hand, and I gratefully accepted it as he helped me on the stage. Uziel stood at the center with Conard next to him while I stood comfortably next to Conrad. His hand wrapped around my waist and it made me a little shy with the fact that we had the pack members watching our every move. Uziel cleared h
Everything happened in a blur; Conrad had made sure to get Kruz’s body away before I even opened my eyes. Clara, on the other hand, tried her best to free herself. I could see her struggle, her agony on not being able to perform magic. I wanted her to feel every bit of the pain she has inflicted on me. I wanted her to know how to it feels to be helpless. Tears continued to stream down her face, and surprisingly enough, I did not feel upset seeing her that way. “Please, let me go. I promise, I would never bother you again.” She pleaded “You still have audacity to think you could be forgiven?” Uziel asked, his anger and hatred clear in his voice, and the way she flinched, she knew it was for her. “Please, I am sorry. Let me go. I promise to never come back.” She pleaded pathetically making me scoff. “Cordelia, please, help me.” She pleaded with me; it didn’t affect like it normally would. “After everything you did, you still expect me to
After we have shared the vows, both of us stared at each other to signal that we were ready. “You may now mark the bride,” Uziel smiled at Conrad, who tossed his face to me and then looked around. Clara and Kruz were standing very close to us, as I said, there were not many people attending the wedding. “I have a concern,” I suddenly objected and that led both Clara and Kruz to share a glance and then watch me. “We don’t have time, Cordelia.” Clara spoke very anxiously; her eyes weren’t able to focus on one spot. She was quickly looking around to avoid eye contact at any cost. “Maybe she is not ready to help her husband out yet,” Kruz tried to play mind games, pressuring me into showing my sincerity for Conrad.“You are just a Beta, don’t speak on the behalf of your Queen,” Conrad, who had been desperately waiting to punish Kruz, muttered and it shocked him. Kruz had been with him since they were kids, that’s when he thought he deserved more power than him. "I
We couldn’t sleep the whole night. I told him everything in the next few hours."I can't believe Kruz wants me gone." Conrad and I had been lying naked under a blanket and cuddled up. Now that he knew everything, we didn't really need those."When I was first brought here, he as*aulted me in the dungeon," I still recalled everything he had done to me. I noticed Conrad pulling away from me and sitting in the bed, he was staring at me with a frown on his forehead, "the day your father found me using magic, I was actually saving myself from him because he was - - - he was going to r*** me." once I finished, he made tight fists of his hands and tried to get out of the bed but I grasped his arm and pulled him back."We have to be very careful about what we do, we have no idea who else they have under them. They might have casted a spell on most of the mansion, let's not do anything in haste." I rubbed his hand between my hands to calm him down as he breathed heavily like a bull.
"What? I don't know what you are saying. Why would I want your virginity?" He shook his head and started dialing her number again.I knew what was happening and how he can break this spell, well, the answer was right there.Only he can break this spell and set himself free."Because you won't be able to feel my touch after tomorrow." now that I knew Selene won't be able to read his mind or hear what I was saying since she was long asleep, I started opening up to him.There was a mist forming in his eyes, I knew he was feeling helpless and bad for not being able to hold me tight and tell me it will be fine, like he would always do. I remember I used to push him away because of the people around us, because of that link, but I was now realising how much his hug, his arms had boosted my confidence in the past. Yes! we humans do take smallest things for granted but when we lose them only then we realise how important and how special they were to us."What do you me---an,"
I stole my eyes from Clara and began to brainstorm an excuse. The instant Uziel got upo from his seat and left for his room, I cleared mu throat to explain my motives. “I wanted to know why my mother tried to kill me. I just cannot understand that she did it only for power, she loved me.” I was lying out of my mind, fearing if she would even believe me at this point but then she passed me a sad smile and it gave me enough confident to keep moving on.“Cordelia! Evil people dpnt need reasons to hurt ypu, they just find a way to do it and they do it,” now that I was aware of her true intentions, her fake smile and comforting tone was not enough to console me. “You are right!” I whispered under my breath and noticed Kruz and Conrad leaving the table. I knew Kruz only stayed behind to make sure I wasn’t doing anything behind their backs or I have not got up on them. “What is happening between you and Conrad? I noticed the change in his attitude towards you, I thought you
I was sprinting to Uziel’s room, my heart was beating like a drum and my skin covered in goosebumps. Somebody has to listen to me or they will succeed in their evil plans. Before knocking on his door, I gathered myself together and plastered a fake smile across my lips. He opened the door and stared at me in confusion, I don’t think he was expecting me to pay him a visit and disturb his peace. “I am so sorry your highness, but the matter in hand was important. Clara and I want to get the access to the books of magic, we are preparing for the ritual and i---,” I don’t think he wanted me to explain, he was ready to do anything for his son. “Here, please make sure everything goes perfectly.” He had the same misery in his eyes that he had when he asked me last time to help his son. I took the keys from his hand and gave him a satisfactory smile, despite being heavily scared and confused myself. He didn’t even know that his son was now even under some kind of spell. I mar
I kept listening to her and the more I heard, the more I shivered in my skin. But she wasn’t alone neither was she on the call. It seemed as there was somebody inside with her. “The plan is simple; Conrad is not getting free from this curse.” There was content in her tone as if she had no worries that it was living person she was talking about. “But why did the crystal show Cordelia as his mate?” My stomach formed a knot when I recognized the voice. I had to cover my mouth to prevent the gasp of horror heaving my lips. Kruz!It was Kruz with Clara.“Imogen had decided to kill two birds with one stone.” Listening my mother’s name from her lips hit me like a bullet, “She wants Cordelia dead so that she can get the powers for herself because as long Cordelia lives, there will be a fear among us, she will never let us hurt Conrad or the pack. Tomorrow when Conrad marks her, the ritual we will perform will not lift up the curse but kill his mate. After she is dead,
