Just as the words left Aster's lips, all the color drained from Eva's face and left her looking as white as a ghost.
In that moment she hoped like hell that whatever had come out of Aster's mouth was a lie. Whatever bullshit she had uttered was not true.
In the past hour whatever had happened between her, Rush and Liam, she had gained everything in that. She had felt content and complete for just one second. One fucking second! It can not be snatched from her this soon.
Her questioning gaze went to Liam's face. She could not say anything. What was there to say?
She just needed to see that one look on Liam's face that removed every worry from her mind. She just needed one fucking reason to get Aster out of her face.
But Liam did not spare even a look in her direction. His gaze was stuck to Aster.
It was not shock. His gaze held pure rage.<
Eva'sPOVI lifted my other hand and removed his hold from my elbow. In that moment I hated Liam. And not in a casually saying, uttering nonsense kind of way.I really, really hated him for what he had done to me.The sight of him standing in front of me with guilt ridden face did nothing but increase my anger and pain and that started to make me hate him even more.Where the fuck had I gone wrong?I guess ignoring his every mistake in hopes of a happy future, my selfish need for attention and desperation of getting both Liam and Rush in my life as my lifelong destiny had come back to bite me in the ass.I should not have been greedy.I should never have forgiven him.I should never have given him another chance.I made sure to squeeze Liam's hand with all my strength. My nails pierced his skin but he did not make a sound.I did not know why I did that. To make him feel the pain I was feeling, probably
Liam's POVEverything had turned into a fucking mess. I had tried to manage everything. I had tried to keep Eva happy while making sure of keeping my desires hidden from her.My desires for the alpha position and Aster, both.I wanted to leave everything behind and go to her. I wanted to live with her without any obstacles in our life.But the thing that was coming in the way of that was my deepest desire of becoming an alpha.No matter how hard I had tried to bury it, it had surfaced back with twice as much force.It was not that I had not tried to break my engagement with Aster and leave the benefit behind that came from marrying her.I had tried a thousand times and I had failed every fucking time. My heart was torn into so many shreds that I had became confused and frustrated with the way that I was being forced to choose.
Liam had been watching us. I could feel his eyes on us, but I was not ready to face him.I heard the cheering sound of people while Rush kept me hidden inside his chest.And I was glad for it. I was glad for his support. Even though he himself was in pain, he was helping me get through everything that was happening around me.People kept screaming and cheering and laughing and praying for the couple while tears dripped down my cheek silently. They prayed and wished for the well being and happiness of the couple while I struggled to breathe.Rush's one hand covered my ear. His own heart was thudding so loudly in his chest that I could hear the sound of it through his chest throughout the cheering of people.Liam was breaking our heart in front of our own eyes."Are they married?" I whispered."Yes, baby." Rush replied in my ear softly."I want to get out of here." I replied. My voice hitching and breaking the sentence into hundreds of p
Her body instantly stiffened. She was not ready for it. She was not ready to face Liam and Aster together yet."You are joking, right?" She asked. Hoping and praying that it was, indeed, a joke or a horrifying dream.Rush looked away. But then his eyes came back to Eva. He grabbed the back of her neck and pulled her face closer to his.His eyes had closed shut, like he was in deep pain and the next words that were going to come out of his mouth were nearly excruciating even to him."It is the rule, Eva." He whispered, "we are mated to each other now. And mates live together. I can not live without you anymore as it hurts me every time I walk out of door of your home. It is getting harder for me to leav
One Week LaterEva walked out of the main door. Rush was leaning against his car while talking to somebody.He had promised to take her out on a date today. It was nearly six o'clock in the evening.The past week had gone in a jiffy. With the unpacking of her things and most of the time, getting thoroughly fucked by the werewolf whose appetite for sex seemed to be unending, the days had been spent so fast that she had not even realized when the week ended.Thankfully, she had not have to bear crossing a specific werewolf who should not be named in her presence.She was not afraid of facing him. She just did not want things for her to get awkward so soon. She still needed time to adjust.As soon as Rush saw her walking out in a tight, ankle length jeans and a cold shoulder, red top, he bid goodbye to the person and jogged towards her."You look ravishing." He said as soon as he was near her and bent down to kiss her."Y
Eva's POVI giggled as I looked at Rush trying to climb a carriage but failing so miserably at the task. I could not believe he was scared of horses."Please come down." he begged sweetly."But I want to ride this." I whined, "You just need to climb a step. Come on."Rush tried to climb up again but the horse suddenly turned its head a bit sideways which made Rush jump back so hard that I was left gasping for breath while laughing.I sighed in exasperation and came down from the carriage. The fun was obviously over.Rush immediately came back to me while saying, "Hey, you do not have to ruin it because of me." he bent down his head and kissed my temple softly, "Sit inside. I will be right behind you."I shook my head in denial and took his hand in my grasp while smiling, "Don't worry about it. It is no fun without you."His face fell in disappointment, "I am so sorry for this. I just can not seem to get over my stupid
"Hey.." I asked worriedly while I followed him, "where are we going?"He did not respond. As soon as we were out, he opened the passenger seat and made me sit. And then he rounded the car to take the driver seat.He started the car and in the next second we were driving down the street at the speed of over eighty. It was almost midnight and my worry was increasing with every passing minute. Rush's anger was scaring me.After barely five minutes we came to a stop. He climbed out of the seat aggressively. His anger was scaring me.He rounded the car to come to me but I was already fidgeting with the seat belt to take it off.He opened my side
The broken shards of glass were still digging inside my skin. My feet were hurting badly, but I could not stop running. I ran outside the hall and towards the car standing outside.As I stopped, heaving heavily while my hands trembled on the hood of the car, I realized I did not have the keys. Tears were slipping down my cheeks freely.I could not stand there. I wanted to go home. I wanted to sleep this bad dream away.I turned around on my heels and stumbled forward on trembling legs.A few steps ahead and I was falling down on my knees."What are you doing?" A sensual, low voice that I had come to recognize easily fell into my ears.Clenching my eyes tight shut, I refused to open them and look at the person standing in front of me. I hated her."Are you hurt?" Her words did not contain worry, but there was no humour or laugh either. Just clear seriousness."What do you care?" I mumbled through clenched teeth as my fuming gaze snapped
