Some might think that living in a pack is one of the best things that could happen to a person. You've got family and friends surrounding you at all times. But for me, I was the Omega. I was the slave/training dummy that everyone passed around. Plus, the Alpha would use me for his sexual pleasure. Him, being an unmated Alpha, his hormones are all over the place and he has no one to tell him no.
I'm just his toy.
I have to say though, Alpha Kane was something to look at. I might be one lucky girl to bed him, other than the fact that it isn't my choice.
That's kinda a downfall.
Geez, where are my manners! I'm Nicole Valentine. I was born in Dripping Fang pack, 2nd most powerful in the world. I was born of two brilliant people. Courtney and Terrence Valentine. Though I never met my father, my mother would always tell me his story. My father was one of the best trackers in the pack. He was beloved by all. After he passed no one looked at us the same. They saw us as worthless without him. That is how we became omegas. On the rare chance of someone having sympathy for my mother and me, someone else would tell us off quickly. I've become numb to the constant hate surrounding us.
Today was just another blurred day. I had my mother's features. Black hair that hadn't been cut in so long that it curled up around my waist and her striking green eyes. Nothing to remember my father by. My mother and I were housed at the back of the pack, lost within the shroud of dense trees in a small dismantled cabin. My mother was standing in the kitchen over the stove. She shifted her weight over to her other leg and stirred whatever was in the pan.
"Morning mamma," I planted a kiss on her cheek and peek over her shoulder into the pan of sizzling cheesy scrambled eggs.
"Good morning love," she greeted back with a smile. Even in the worst place in town, she still had a smile light up a room. The sun must be jealous.
"Allow me," I slipped the spatula out of her hand and slid in front of her. She chuckled and pulled the peanut butter out of the cabinet. Opening it for me, she shoved a spoon in it and turned to grab some cups. I picked up the spoon and began to eat the peanut butter while flipping the eggs.
"Did you sleep well dear?" She quirked while setting the table. I slid the eggs onto some plates and twirled toward the table.
"Like a baby, you?" I said around the spoon. Though it was a lie, I didn't need her to know how horribly I sleep on that stone mattress of mine.
"Not too bad, that mattress isn't the best." I chuckled. How ironic. She handed my glass to me after I took my seat across from her. We ate in comfortable silence for a while until she broke it with the usual morning motivation.
"You know, when you find your mate he's going to swoop you off your feet and away from here." She cupped my cheek and her olive aging face frowned. I sucked in a tear and cleared my throat.
"I'm not going anywhere without you. You know that." She looked down with conflict pushing at her features. We both knew she was sick, but I wouldn't let that defeat me so easily. We both jumped when the door slammed open. It smacked into the wall and squealed in horror. A man ducked under the frame, a mic in his ear and a bald shinning head on his shoulders.
"Let's go." He grabbed my arm and ripped me from my seat. I hissed and reached out for my mother's hand.
"Nicole!" She lunged toward me but the man threw me over his shoulder.
"I love you!" I squealed.
"Stay." He barked at my mom before swiveling toward the car. I saw her face in the doorway so I blew her a quick kiss.
"I'll see you, tomorrow momma!" I yelled back, she waved my off with eyes brimming with tears. He shoved me into the back of the car and sped off before mom could change her mind.
Passing the pack, I envied what I saw. People walking down the street with smiles and no care in the world. Happiness. I heave a heavy sigh and turn away from the window. He slammed on the brakes causing me to slam into the back seat. I groan and grab my throbbing head. He opened the back a roughly grabbed me. Bruises were forming around his fingers. He dragged me toward the Alpha's office. He ran some weird company that I didn't care to look into. I tried to complain when he shoved me into the elevator but it was better for me to keep quiet. There was no law against hitting omegas. People filled into the elevator, a petite girl looked toward me with an arched brow. She looked at the strong grip the man had on me and hissed under her breath. I look away from her, it was bad to stare. I jump when she grabbed my free hand gently. I look up quickly and she whispered "sorry" to me. I smile back sadly but yip when the doors open and I get pulled from the elevator. We walked up to a set of tall doors which he knocks on.
"Come in," Alpha Kane's recognizable voice says from the other side. He pushed the door open and shoved me into the center of the room. I stumble on the rug and crumple to my knees.
"Ah, finally!" The man left instantly. I look up to find him standing behind his desk. His brown glared at something on his desk while he ran a hand through his amber hair, ruining it quickly. He looked up and began to run his eyes along my body.
"I need a stress reliever," he hissed and shoved the paper aside. He could read the distaste on my face and smirked down at me. "Don't be like that," he hummed while lifting me to my feet. He shoved me into the door and breathed down my neck. I cringed away from him. I was used to his tricks by now and nothing he did affected me anymore. Now you might just say "run away from him!" Well, it's not that easy. He loved the hunt, the challenge. I've run a few times, but he always knew I'd come back to my mother.
"Let's get this over with," I muttered. Anger flashed in his eyes causing me to shrink into my shoulders.
"Who do you think you are?" He snapped. His claws dug into the door behind me. Chips fell onto the floor. Sorry door!
"I apologize," I looked down at the floor. Though I meant it sarcastically in my head, I had to plead guilty. This man had a temper and has hurt me in the past. I wouldn't want him killing me.
"You're not gonna fight today?" I shook my head then let it hang.
"No fun. Whatever. Let's do this so I can get back to work." He spoke as if I was the one asking for it. He swiped his desk then shoved me down onto it. His dry chappy lips hit mine without permission. The phone rung beside my head. Growling, he reached up and clicked the speaker button while keeping himself busy with my neck.
"Sir, more pack members from an unknown pack we found at the border again. They killed another one of our citizens too, and on his corpse was a note that said: "We're coming soon." Kane jumped up and grabbed the phone before I could hear what he had said. But I had heard it all and I had gone sheet white.
"Alex, I am busy. Take the citizen to the infirmary, we'll have a funeral for his family this evening." I shut my eyes quickly and began to pant when he hung up the phone. I acted as if I hadn't heard the conversation because I was too lost in the sexual moment. If he knew I heard the conversation-who knew what he'd do.
"Did you hear that?" I shook my head and acted as if I was dizzy. He smirked seductively.
"You liking this?" He whispered and twirled his hand in my hair. He soon lost himself in the sexual activities, while I acted as so.
Waking up in my own home didn't surprise me. He had probably dropped my off early this morning. Stretching and cracking my bones, I grumbled a groan of soreness. The brushes lining my arms were a deep purple-pink color. I sluggishly slip into the bathroom with a wide yawn. Unzipping the ripped summer dress that hung off my body I sadly threw it away.I liked that dress.The shower was never warm. Even when I pleaded for it to warm my aching bones. Time after time I received ice-cold water that crashed down my shoulders. Choosing an outfit blind, I fling my wet hair out of my face and fall backward on the warn couch. Mom looked up quickly from her recliner with wide eyes that were edging with tears."Mom?" I spun over onto my stomach to look at her. She nervously played with her hair and searched for something else to look up. She got restless enough to stand up and flatten her clothes."Are you okay?" She twisted her hair and chuckled lightly."Wha
My breath catches in my throat. I slowly walk around the rock while he comes around the other side. He jerks his head toward the spot where I had just been. He inhales deeply then chuckles under his breath."Nicole, come on out." I sunk into the darkness, my black fur making me as translucent as the shadows. A low growl came from the back entrance of the cave, I turned to find the source of it."Found you!" I yelp as he grabs the scruff of my neck like a mamma dog would her pup. He lifted me off the hard flooring and to face level with him."Victoria! Hey!" I don't shift very often so he was surprised to see me. I pulled my lips over my teeth but it didn't phase him."Shift." He growled. When I had sifted he shoved me against the rock wall, his eyes twinkling in amusement. I squirmed away from his hold but he didn't budge."So, you like Mia?" He said with a dangerous smirk. I growled and sunk my teeth into his hand. Retracting my fangs I take
Dreams are weird. They can be so crazy and magical that you know it's fake, or they can be so realistic that you can't tell what's a dream and what's reality.I yawned and stretched out my body, I sleepily look over to the clock and scream out of my skin."What's wrong!" Mom yelled while barreling through my door. It squealed in pain. I yanked a brush through my hair and attempted to calm my rapid heart."It's Monday!" Mom rocked back on her heels and sighed."And?" She said while placing a hand on her chest."It's almost noon! The Campers are going to kill me!" I scurried to the closet. She hummed in understanding and left me to get ready. I threw on an easy outfit and race out of my room."Love you, momma!" I yell back while sprinting out the doors. She yelled back a goodbye. The Campers were one of the meanest families in the pack. I clean their home every Monday and if I wasn't there on time I'd be leaving with a broken bone
I cowered away from him and pushed myself into the dusty floor. I bowed and whimpered for mercy. Victoria scoffed at me but I didn't acknowledge her, his anger issues could skyrocket at any moment and kill me. I couldn't leave my mother alone."Nicole. You need better control over your wolf. If she acts out like that again..." he trailed off. He lifted his paw to the bottom of my chin, he lifted my head up to me his bared teeth."I will not be so kind." He stuck his claw into the side of my cheek and slowly drug it down to my jaw, leaving a slice in its path. I whimpered and pulled away from his paw. I felt the blood drip down my chin."Now run home. Clean yourself up and have a chat with your wolf. I will see you tomorrow." He snapped then skipped off, his eyes on full alert and his wound already a long pink scar."Victoria," I whispered but she looked away, ashamed. I sigh and attempt to stand but
Rolling over I'm stopped by something hard. I groggily groan and sniff the air to smell who was sitting in my way. My body tenses when I realized I didn't recognize the smell of an ocean breeze. The smell was intoxicating."Mate!" Victoria screamed. My breath hitched in my lungs. She's joking. She's got to be. But that would explain the electricity sparkling through me. The person rose to their feet, the bed dipped back to its place. I kept my composure and waited for the person to leave. No one is in my room. No one is in my room. No one is in my room- A warm hand grazed over my cheek, leaving sparks in its path. My cheek tingled. My lungs failed me but I attempted to act as if I was still asleep. My heart was crashing against my ribs, I'm sure whoever was with me could hear it. Just when I thought they would leave, a pair of the softest lips laid to my forehead. My breathing and heartbeat stopped in sync. The blood froze in my veins. An unknown feeling filled me. Like seein
It didn't take long -thank god- till I swooped up a dress. Just a short navy blue dress that made my olive skin-pop. Even with the casual look, I went for, mom insisted on going all out. She yanked a floor-length sheer black dress, under it was a smaller black dress to keep the goods hidden. We both pull on some flats and amble out of the store. Mom had a skip in her step. I don't know if it was due to Zane or if she thinks that because we have a Luna, the Alpha might leave me alone. I already knew that statement was false. We climbed in the car and waited for Zane who was still in the store paying for our outfits. I did mom's make up, though she didn't use it often she used it for "special occasions." Zane walked out of the store, still putting his card int
I sprinted toward my house, not caring what I looked like or who was starring. I wobbled on my feet and tried to find the right sidewalk to run on. I skipped to a stop, my breathing coming out in heavy pants. I stabled myself against my knees. I scan around the darkness, finding no one. I sigh, but my sigh was early lived. A warm hand laid on my back in a comforting manner. Shocks electrify through me, making me jump up and away from whoever had touched me. Stumbling, I fall onto a building. I sobered up when I heard the dark chuckle fill the air. When I could finally see straight, I stared at the person who had attacked Alpha Kane. I raised a brow, trying to cover up for the fact that my entire body was vibrating in fear.
My mom's jaw unhinged and dropped in surprise, Zane froze solid with his eyes wide. I blushed at their reactions and hid behind his arm from their stares. Mom's eyes hit me with a tsunami behind her bottom lid, her green eyes asking for confirmation. I nodded and speaker when he reached down to place a kiss to the top of my head. I looked up, his eyes glowing in the dimly lit room. I listened to mom choke on a sob and Zane shushed her silently. Eli smiled down at me and spoke to my mother without lifting his gaze."I'm plannin
