For the first time in my life, I felt a bit excited to be coming into school. To be honest, I didn't know why. I felt a warmth envelope my body as I went to my first class, English.
That was weird considering, I've just been to hell and back. My brother, Ryan and some of his friends came around our house this morning, which wasn't unusual considering they're there most of the time anyways. Although, the Alpha— my brother's best friend wasn't there. And let me tell you, they weren't the kindest people out there.
As I entered the class, I noticed that it was half—empty, with some students talking to their friends. They laughed and smiled and chatted with their friends. Times like this when I wished I had friends.
I took my seat at the back of the classroom by the window. Gazing outside, I saw how the leaves swayed from side—to—side and how there wasn't a single cloud in the sky.The sun shone brightly and the birds flew happily.
All of a sudden, the most amazing scent hit my nostrils causing me to turn to look at the door. There, stood in all of his glory was none other than, Chase Carter, with his messy dark brown bangs and sky blue eyes. Our new Alpha.
Since he was 17 years old today, he was given the position of the Alpha of the Pack. He'd also most likely find his mate today— which he had: me.
I watched as he scanned the class with his eyebrows furrowed. His eyes landed on mine and I felt the tingles spread through my body. I felt like it was just the two of us in the world. I didn't notice anyone else. It was just us.
Mate. Mate. Mate. My wolf yelled at me.
I know, we're so lucky to be his mate, I sighed.
His eyes showed a string of emotions, shock, lust, and love. He smiled slightly at me which I returned.
"Honey, let's go sit down," a whiny voice said. It was only then I realised that Nicole— the Head Cheerleader— was clinging off his strong, tanned arms like her life depended on it.
My mate's girlfriend . . .
He nodded, but his eyes never left mine. I felt a pang of jealousy but I tried to ignore it. My wolf was becoming angrier and angrier by the minute and I knew she would take over my body anytime soon— even though I hadn't shifted yet.
It hurt me to know my own mate wouldn't push away that slag, but instead wrapped his arms around her and allowing her to sit on his lap. Where only I should be sitting.
Trying my best to push away the tears, I didn't even notice when some other of the pack came in and sat down surrounded the Chase and Nicole. I bit my lip, not wanting any sobs to come out, because then they'd only ridicule me even more.
Since I was the only person who hadn't shifted yet in the pack, people often teased me and made fun of me. My parents, or parent should I say, were never there for me because my dad is always sleeping around with other she—wolves, and didn't care. Although my mom was around some of the times, I knew that she cheated on my dad as well. She was only our mom when she felt like it.
Despite being mates, they constantly cheated on each other. It started when my dad started back late from work, each day smelling of another woman. My mom got fed up of sitting around crying because of her mate, so she started cheated as well to make dad feel the same pain as her, but she was a nice mom to have around from time to time.
My brother, he ignored me most of the times. He thought of me as an embarrassment and always made fun of me along his friends. He used to my best friend, until he shifted and I didn't.
Most she—wolves are supposed to shift from the ages 12—15 and I was way older than that and I still hadn't shifted. And I was now 16 years of age. Males shift from 10—13 years old, earlier than she—wolves.
The hour quickly passed and the bell screeched. I grabbed my things and threw in into my backpack before quickly running out of the room. I was the first person out of there, and I was glad because this meant that I wouldn't have any chance of seeing him at all for the next lesson.
No. Go back to our mate, my wolf screamed.
No, he hurt us. He let Nicole touch him. I shouted back.
'Sophia wait, meet me by the janitor's closet,' all of a sudden Chase's voice boomed through mind—link.
Since he was Alpha, I had no choice but to succumb to his order. Or it would be considered very shameful and challenging not to listen to someone who was of higher rank than you, like an Alpha or a Beta. And since I was the pack runt, I had to listen to every single person in our pack, as I was the lowest of the low.
I turned around and made my way near the janitor's closet, which was near the exit of the school, hence it was the complete opposite side of my next class, Biology. The hallway was completely empty, which had my heart thudding against my chest, because it meant that I would be alone . . .with my mate.
Once I was a few metres away, his scent hit me, driving my wolf insane. She wanted nothing but to run upto him and kiss the life out of him. But I controlled my wolf; I had to. No matter how hard or painful it was.
