After cleaning the whole house, I went to sit near the window. My eyes stared aimlessly at the open view that greeted me. Open field with greenery and peace and silence. But somehow, the peace managed to unnerve me. I had started to get tired instead of loosing my feelings towards Liam. It was a harsh truth. But it was the truth.
It was hard for me to believe that Liam had gotten over us so easily. It was easy for him to accept Aster into his life with a kiss and vows. Then why was not it so easy for me and Rush?
As tears started to well up in my eyes, I gathered up my feelings and moved away from the window. My head had started to ruin my mood by going over and over again in Liam's direction.
As a distraction, I decided to work a bit. Coming over to the couch, I grabbed my laptop and started scrolling thorugh random sites for new ideas when I heard a crash.
The crash was so loud that I immediately jumped off the couch in attention. Scared and cautious, I mov
Liam's POVSince the moment Eva had left the packhouse, my heart was not at ease. I had thought that going close to Aster, giving her the right that she deserved would make everybody happy. Even if it snatched my own happiness, I let my wolf take control of my body. That was the only way that I could make Aster get what she wanted from me. And it was not much. She only desired her happiness and I had to give it to her.But then something happened and she stopped me from taking her. Her action had surprised, and in a corner of my heart, delighted me deeply because that was exactly what I wanted.After that, both of us did not talk about it. Even so much as completely ignored each other. I did not know why she was distancing herself from me, but I was glad for it instead of getting upset.As time passed by I tried to gather the courage to stay away from Eva but it was like there was a magnet between us that would not let me move far away from h
"Eva!" I cradled her unconscious body in my arms and shook gently, trying to open her eyes.But she was barely breathing. If it were not for the low thump of her heart, I would have thought she is dead.I grabbed the phone from my pocket and immediately dialed a number. Gabe, the Beta of our pack and one of my close friends picked up the phone after a couple of rings.Before he could even utter a word, I spat, "Get fucking every search party out in the woods and my company to find Rush! Right FUCKING NOW!""What is happening, dude?" Gabe asked, his voice had already turned serious and alert,"Just fucking do as I have said!" I blasted
Eva's surgery went on for ten hours, while Rush's condition was not looking good either. Doctors were unable to figure out what was wrong with him. They did all the test but they could not figure out the reason for his unconsciousness, which only meant that his unconsciousness was not because of physical pain, but it was because of something beyond the understanding of medics.I called the pack witches to look for any other things that may explain Rush's condition. After looking at Rush for an whole hour, they came to the conclusion that Rush was under some kind of spell that had rendered his mind lifeless while he still breathed. The spell had left him in a coma like state.Telling the witches to do everything it takes to figure out the way to break the spell, I went to check on Eva. The night passed and the next day came,
Not even a word came out of my mouth because I was still trying to process the things that Aster was telling me. I had seen Alpha since childhood. I had never seen him do anything wrong. How could he do something like this? With his own daughter?"Why did not you run away? I gently asked. I would have thought that she was lying but the pain in her eyes was too raw to be a mere lie. I knew she was not lying."I foundmy mate." She hesitance murmured."You what?!"She looked up at me through suppressed shame and continued,"Ryan is human. I started meeting him, fell in love, but then Marcus found out about it and attacked him. He arranged to have Ryan murdered through accident. He wanted me to marry a werewolf, not a human."Liam was shocked. This was the most blasphemous thing he had heard. Mating with a human had become common in their world now. Which dream was Marcus living in till now?"I saved him." Aster whispered, "and promised to
A week laterLiam's POV"Eva, do not sit there." I rushed to her by the window and grabbed her before she could sit on the sill. For some reason, she was obsessed with sitting there while staring out. Her eyes twinkled with happiness whenever she sat there."Come here," I whispered and gently grabbed her hand while taking her to the couch sitting right in the hall that gave the clear view of outside, "Wait for me here, I will be back once I grab our breakfast, okay?"She nodded in acceptance and quietly sat where I told her too. Once I was sure that she was not going to move from her spot I ran to the kitchen to grab our breakfast.I was honestly doing my best to stay calm and composed. Rush was still unconscious, but thankfully alive. The pack doctors and witches said that he was given some unnatural substance that had made him go into a deep sleep. So it could take him either one more day to wake up or one more year.
"What is wrong?" I immediately sat straight in attention, "Is there any attack on the pack house?""No." Aster replied before calming down a bit and sighing heavily, "Elders got the hint of what happened at the pack. They heard what Marcus had done so they sent two members of the official alpha council here to inspect everything. And as they say, they are going to be here for a while.""What the actual fucking hell." I growled angrily. But then my attention immediately went to Eva who had shuffled away from me in fear.I had yet to learn to control my wolf in front of her. I kept forgetting she does not know about wolves.Calming myself down I gently extended my hand towards Eva for her to approach. She took in hers but very hesitantly but that was enough for me to calm down."I am coming." I said on the phone before cutting the call."We have got to make one more stop." I said to Eva before turning the car on and driving off towards the new pack
I did not know where he was going with this. Date? With me? With peanut butter and wine? It totally felt like a dream but actually was not, I knew. But to be honest, I was enjoying every second of the time that the grey-eyed stranger was spending on me."Like what you see?" he tilted his head to the side with a smirk on his face that absolutely looked beautiful.My eyes widened for a second but then what was the harm in enjoying a few minutes of flirt with someone?I let a small smile fall upon my lips and then nodded my head in approval with a smile.A grin immediately appeared on his face as he picked up the wine glass and offered it to me before taking his own."Cheers to you, adorbee." he whispered with a glint of heat in his eyes before bending down, coming close to me and then placing his lips just near my own."Eva!" Liam's voice thundered in my ears right before I felt his hand grabbing my shoulder and pulling me off the chair completely a
Liam's lips moved upon mine, his soft lips sucking onto mine, moving in a rhythm that almost brought tears to my eyes. His tongue thrust inside my mouth violently, fucking my mouth and clashing against my tongue, trying to win a battle that did not even have any competition.He pulled back from the kiss only to stare into my eyes, the anger still shining in his eyes like a possessive stance of a violent animal towards its prey."Tell me you are going to do exactly as I say. Nod your head and tell me that you are not going to go close to that fucking bastard. You are not going to be anywhere near that fucking cunt of a man! Nod your fucking head, baby."I was in shock.I was still trying to understand w
