Today was Selena's first day visiting her boyfriend's home after being marked by him. They decided to meet at his place and discuss how to tell her father about their relationship.
Selena doesn't know if her family will accept him. However, he is the man she loves, and there is nothing they can do to keep them apart.
She will forsake everything and be with him if the day ever comes for her to choose between power and love.
Selena's driver stopped the car in her boyfriend's apartment driveway. She felt this chill running down her spine as she attempted to get out of the vehicle.
They have been dating secretly for two years. Selena was skeptical at the beginning of their relationship. There were reasons she could not trust and fall in love with him. But he did not give up on her.
He was so confident and honest when he talked with Selena. He did not care about how she was or her background. His compliments always made Selena smile. It worried him when she felt sick or did not take her umbrella to school on a rainy day. His packed lunches for Selena were adorable. However, what made her fall deeply in love with him was how he never quit caring and being there for her even when she drove him away.
Selena still had that nervous feeling when she stepped out of the car and stood at his front door. There was a piece of important information he needed to know, and she has been hiding it from him for two years now. Yet, that was not the reason behind her uneasy feelings. Once he marked Selena, they became empathetic. The anxious feeling that she was experiencing was not occurring in her but in him.
Selena unlocked the door with the spare key he gave her and entered. Everything seems organized in his living room. He is a neat freak and never loves for people to disarrange his stuff. Selena was his only exception.
He was not in the living room, so she checked the bedroom. His door was somewhat open, and noises were coming out.
"Something is not right," Selena told herself and peeped through the door.
He was on his bed, but the woman beside him was not her. Selena could not breathe.
'This isn't real!' She thought to herself.
However, the evidence was right before her eyes, and it was something that she could not wrap her head around.
"Zac! What are you doing with my cousin? Since when did Jin and you become so close to sharing a bed?" Selena cried.
Her eyes were full of tears, and she knew that the makeup on her face had gotten damaged. Selena felt hurt like he had crushed her heart into a million parts right before her eyes.
Zac did not show any uneasiness. His face was indifferent as stone. Selena has never seen this expression on his face since they were together.
The only emotion Selena could feel from him was hatred. His resentment for her felt so powerful that her heart and mind were in anguish.
"When were you going to tell me you are engaged to another dominant alpha? Selena, you understood from the beginning that your family would never accept this love, and you kept it to yourself. A base alpha like me can't succeed against a dominant alpha. Are you seeking to have me banished from the pack?" Zac said in a bitter tone.
After those words came out of his mouth, Selena could not sense any emotion coursing through her veins. There was no pain, resentment, or love in her heart for him. She felt numb, like a sedated person. However, Selena could feel his thoughts, and they seemed filled with greed.
"You are lying to me. Maybe if this event had happened before you bit me, I would have believed you. But now we are connected. I can feel every sentiment you are undergoing." She told Zac.
His expression following Selena's statement shocked her.
"What are you saying?" Zac asked Selena in a disturbed tone.
He looked confused and afraid at the same time.
"You marked me as a symbol of ownership. I am your mate, Zac. Your bite-mark grants me the ability to sense and understand your feelings. And the same goes for you." She informed him.
Zac stared at Selena intensely, almost like he was striving to feel her emotions. Zac kept gazing for about five minutes, then he froze.
"Ah, my head! It is not the same! I can sense nothing from you! All I get when I try is headaches. What kind of Omega are you?" Zac uttered slowly.
"That is not possible. Once you guys mate, Zac should be able to experience your feelings!" Jin said in confusion.
Selena stared at Jin's pretentious face with rage in her eyes. She was like a sister to her. Selena's dad took her mother in after their grandpa died and turned the family business over to her father. Jin is her aunt's daughter, and they grew up together like best friends after her mother moved in. Selena never thought Jin could stand this low and sleep with her boyfriend.
"Jin, this was your plan, wasn't it? What do you plan to gain out of this?" She questioned Jin with an ache in her voice.
"You are right, cousin. Your father is thinking about making you the head of the family business, which rightfully belongs to my mother. He is the youngest, yet our grandfather gave him the company because he is a male alpha. Once your father discovers the truth and the entire clan knows that you've become marked by a base alpha. He would feel displeased, and without a dominant alpha to support you, the CEO position will be mine." Jin boasted.
Selena could not believe that she let her guard down and lay in bed with a devil who serves her cousin. It was their plan all along, and Selena fell right into her trap. She felt enraged, but there was nothing that she could do.
Zac and Jin are alphas, and Selena is just an Omega. Although she is one of the strongest Omegas disciplined by her father, the elder of the alpha clan, yet in this situation, Selena is just a rabbit among two huge foxes.
"Your cousin is telling you the truth. I never loved you from the beginning until now. If not for our plan to take over your father's business, why would I have to look at a weak Omega like you when I have an alpha as my girlfriend." Zac stated and passionately kissed Jin.
Selena felt sick to her stomach. Jin and Zac disgusted her, and she wanted to get out of there. She turned to leave, but his voice stopped her.
"You can't leave! I marked the wrong person. I need to cancel that mark on your neck before you can go." Zac said coldly.
Selena's body shivered from his remarks. She could feel the warm tears rolling down her chin.
"Jin, how can you be so despicable? You will not let me keep my dignity?" Selena asked her.
"Stop acting like a saint. You are shameless. I did not force you to fall in love with my boyfriend. Furthermore, you are behaving like I was the one who stole your partner. However, I feel sorry for you. Omega can only get marked by one alpha. Once an alpha marks, and later rejects his Omega, no other Alpha will want her or him. Even a dominant alpha will refuse you." Jin ridiculed her cousin.
"Zac, I am begging you. If you have any compassion left for me, please don't do this to me." Selena pleaded with him.
If Zac renounces Selena, her life is over. The elders may oust her from the clan. And worst of all, there will be no opportunity for Selena to have babies.
"An alpha can mark over one species. Allow me to go, and I promise to find a more powerful Alpha to erase your mark with his bite. Then we wouldn't be connected." Selena told him, hoping that he would be reasonable and let her leave.
Despite Selena's plea, she did not feel any sympathy coming from him, only corruption and hate she could sense.
"Selena, if I let you go, the plans we have worked on for five years will get ruined. Now be an obedient girl. Don't move, it may burn, but I will do it swiftly." Zac said to Selena as he approached her.
Selena stood frozen. She was under an alpha command and had no control over her movement, and she could not run or scream.
The room felt dense, and the air was cold as he sunk his teeth into Selena's neck. She still cannot believe the same teeth that bit her as a symbol of love could do the same in the name of hate.
Two-bit marks opposite each other. One stands for love and the other for rejection.
"There is no coming back from this mess. I just need to figure out how to get my revenge." Selena told herself.
"It's completed. Selena, you can move now." Zac said after he had withdrawn his teeth from her neck. Selena sensed the deep pain gradually decline in her soul. It felt as though her body was healing itself. When Zac had his teeth in Selena's flesh, her entire body felt like it was on fire. She wanted to cry carelessly from the torment she was going through. Yet Selena could not find the strength to allow herself to mourn. It was like a part of her did not desire to scream, no matter how intense the pain grew. All she could do was to allow her tears to pour. Selena watched Jin standing by Zac's side and giggling from her suffering. She did not display any sympathy on her face. She stood by and allowed him to torture Selena with violence. Zac didn't behave tenderly, like the manner he used the first time. Selena remembers him acting sympathetic with her and biting her passionately so that she c
"Miss, we have arrived." Joe's voice woke Selena up from her nap as he tapped her gently on the hand. The car stopped, and Selena got out. The enormous mansion before her has been
Mila grabbed Jin's hand when they were out of Selena's sight and dragged her daughter into her bedroom. She sat Jin on the bed and stared at her fiercely. The mom and daughter kept silent for some time as Mila analyzed Jin's body. She felt furious about her daughter's face. Mila had a strategy for tonight, and this was a setback, but she could not let it hinder her plans. "Who did this to you?" Mila asked and rested next to her daughter. Jin didn't answer. She seems frightened to explain to her mother. Jin knew that Mila is not sympathetic to people when they do something wrong. And she did not want her mother to punish the person who injured her. Mila grew annoyed. She sticks her fingers on Jin's bruise and presses into it. Blood escaped Jin's cut and flowed down her face. "I will ask you again. Who did this to you!" Mila questioned Jin. She hates disrespect, and Mila needs her daughter to follow her obediently. She knew that if she and Jin were to win this battle, her daughte
"What do you mean by I can't book a first-class ticket?" A lady shouted in the airport lobby. All those waiting in line and passing by stared at her. "I am sorry, Miss. A very important person book first-class." The ticket agent answered casually, making sure that others could not understand her statement except for the lady. "How can a single person book the entire first class?" The lady asked curiously. The ticket agent seems uncomfortable by her question, she looks afraid, as though their conversation would get them in serious trouble. " From what I heard, he is not someone to aggravate, so I advise you to book a second-class ticket or take the next plane. Also, I am afraid that if I discuss this matter any further, I may lose my job. Plus, my clearance doesn't qualify me to assist with such information." The ticket agent stated. The lady became more curious as
Bob and the bodyguards return from the alley with a man wearing all-over black. They had handcuffs on his hands as he got dragged into one of their cars. "We have apprehended the culprit, sir!" Bob reported when he retreated to Gabriel's side. "Take him to the black site and make sure he talks by any means necessary." His master replied. "I understand, boss!" Bob answered with a straight face. He did not know if returning to his boss's homeland was an excellent idea since this was the second incident that his master had encountered in a day. Gabriel reached out his hands to take Selena off the ground when Bob intervened. He knew how much his master hated dirt. "Sir, allow me to carry her. She is filthy and covered in blood. She doesn't deserve to get handled by you." Bob said. Gabriel did not reply. Still, the anger in his eyes serves as a warning
Nineteen minutes later, Gabriel arrived at his villa. The cars got parked in the yard, and his bodyguards rushed out to provide cover for him. Bob hurried out of the front seat and opened the door for his boss. "Sir, allow me to handle the girl." Bob requested. Gabriel looks down at Selena, then brutally gazes at Bob. His butler read the signal and moved aside. Gabriel stepped down with Selena in his arms. "Don't tell me what to do and what not to do again!" Gabriel told Bob as he walked past him. Gabriel's butler and guards followed him toward his house, where Dr. Lee was awaiting him on the balcony. "I am glad that you did not bite more than you can chew, Lee!" Gabriel stated. "Thank you, sir." Dr. Lee said with a bow. He remained in his position until Gabriel entered his home before Lee could follow in. Gabriel's maid Janet, who had served the family for years, watched in shock as her young master held an unknown woman in his arms. She gazed at Bob, but his facial expression p
An hour passed, "Knock!" Bob tapped on the medical room door before entering. He met Gabriel sleeping. His young master's head was relaxing on the bed beside Selena with his body bent over as he held her hand. "Sir," Bob gently called. Gabriel opened his eyes after the fourth call. He sleepily gazes at his butler before lifting his head and unbending back into the chair. "You better have a good reason for disturbing my sleep, Bob. Because if you don't, I wouldn't mind you watching me sleep for three nights." Gabriel utters. Bob stepped back a little and wept the sweat off his forehead even though the air conditioning was on. He realized that his young master had been regularly getting enraged since he met Selena, and Bob thought it fit to behave until he could figure out the reason behind his boss' rage. "I promise it is!" Bob replied. He approached Gabriel and gave him a cell phone. "What is this? Gabriel asked as he scrolled through the device. "We when through the fellow pho
About five minutes passed, and Gabriel came out of his room wearing a fashionable long black leather jacket, a ripped white t-shirt, shredded black skinny jeans, and black leather boots. Bob was waiting by the door. When he saw his young master coming out, he did not say a word. Instead, Bob obediently followed Gabriel. As they were leaving the house, none of Gabriel's servants dared to look into his eyes. Fear was the only emotion flowing through the mansion as Gabriel walked past them. They all kept their heads bent until he left his villa. "Boss, let me get the door for you!" Bob said when he and Gabriel reached his boss's black La Voiture Noire. "Hand the key to me!" Gabriel ordered. Bob wanted to respond, but he kept his opinions to himself, and obediently gave the car key to his young master. Gabriel wore his dark shades and a white cap before getting into the driver's seat. Bob stood still outside the vehicle, waiting on his young master to instruct him on what to do. "Bob
