The moment I step foot in the Blueming packhouse, I can feel a powerful force and an intoxicating scent fill my nostrils.
"Tell them to wait for me for a while. I have to look for something outside first."
I quickly trotted my way into the back of the packhouse because the scent was stronger there. But I was face to face with a girl. I looked at her up and down; she looked so poor and… dirty. The girl's clothes were full of stains from which I don't know where it comes from. She's kind of disgusting, but as I look into her face. God, she was so beautiful. And it kicks me in. The girl is my mate.
"Mate," I uttered unbelievably.
"Mate," she said back.
I eyed her. Her hair was a brown color that was cascading behind her back, but it was so messy. Sweat was also dripping on her face, like she just ran a mile in a hurry.
"Who are you?" I asked coldly. Then I saw the look she gave me, like she was hurting. But I don't care. I can't accept that she's my mate. She looks so weak.
"I-I'm Alexandria Gregory, 18, an omega..."
Omega. My mate is an omega? There's no way I could accept this! She is disgusting!
"Are you kidding me? The f*ck? My mate is an omega? This can't be real!" I spat in disbelief. Damn, I must be dreaming.
"What if I am?" she said in a voice full of hurt. But I don't care. I won't accept this. I'd rather marry Liza than an omega. An Alpha is for an Alpha only. And an omega is for omega only.
I growled and grabbed the collar of her shirt. "I am an Alpha and this mate thing is not f*cking real! Omega is for omega only! Do you understand that? I am an Alpha and I can't accept this." I said and pushed her, then she stumbled to the ground. Her tears poured down. It kind of stung to see her cry, but I ignored it. This is unbelievable. Moon Goddess, why her? Why an omega?
"But you are my mate! You can't deny that!" she said angrily while still crying. I scowled at her.
"No! You're disgusting!" I spat back angrily. I should reject her. I don't want her to be my mate. I'm going to marry Liza anyway, for the union of our packs. This is for the pack's future. I should think first about what is better for the pack than for myself. Dang, but why does it hurt to reject her? The looks she gave me were full of pain and hatred. But I have to do this.
"I, Alpha Azrael Shepherd, reject you, Alexandria Gregory as my mate," I said coldly, then turned my back towards the packhouse. I have said it and it's already done. I stopped dead in my tracks when she yelled at my back.
"No! You can't do this to me, Azrael! I will make sure you'll regret this! I, Alexandria Gregory, also reject you, Azrael Shepherd as my mate! I hope the Moon Goddess will curse you to never find your true happiness ever again! I hate you to the moon and back, Azrael Shepherd!!!" her words... It was full of hatred. And why do I feel like I've made a bad decision?
And it hurts like hell, even though this is the first time that I have seen her. But she looked familiar, though. I wanted to look at her and take back my words, but what's done is done. I couldn't take back my words now. Instead, I continued walking towards the pack's house.
"Azrael! Where did you go?" Liza asked me when she saw me getting inside the house. I smiled at her like nothing happened a while ago. Liza is beautiful, and she has been my girlfriend for almost 2 years now. I can say I loved Liza, that's why I abandoned my mate. I am already tied to Liza too. We were already engaged last month and I don't want to hurt her. So I have made a choice, that is to reject my mate.
Rejection. She also rejected me and it f*cking hurts. My wolf is also crying and he wouldn't talk to me because of my choice. I know I am a jerk and I feel bad for hurting my supposed-to-be mate. It's too late now. I already rejected her.
Her face was flashing in my mind every second and minute. She's all I could think of.
"Azrael? Are you listening?"
"Uh, are you saying something, babe?" I asked, and she frowned. Her eyebrows furrowed, then narrowed her eyes.
"Are you thinking of another girl?!" she scowled. Damn. What's with this girl?
"I don't," I said coldly and walked towards Matthew, my Beta.
"Beta, let's cancel the meeting today. I don't feel good." I said, then left quickly. Liza shouted my name, but I didn't give a damn. All I could think about was how my heart aches excruciatingly.
I didn't know rejection could distract me. And I didn't know it hurts like hell. Is she also hurting like this? Damn, why can't I get her off my mind?
I groaned and shifted into my full wolf form, then ran towards the forest. I want to be alone for now.
Alexandria Gregory, what did you do to me? Why are your words stuck up in my mind? And why do I feel like I already regret the second you said it back? The second you reject me too because of hatred? Ugh, you're kidding me!
I have to find her! I have to ask where she is. All I know is she's an omega.
'Matthew, can you look for the name Alexandria Gregory in that pack?' I said to my beta using mind-link.
'Why, Alpha? Who is this girl?'
'Just do what I said. I have to know all about her.'
I sighed and stopped running. I am too far away from the Blueming Pack now and I didn't notice I am already in my territory. I saw a big rock and sat while still thinking about my stupidity. I have also waited for her for years and then when I saw her; I rejected her. Stupid self.
I hated myself more than Alexandria did. But Moon Goddess, why an omega? I still don't understand why.
"No! You can't do this to me, Azrael! I will make sure you'll regret this! I, Alexandria Gregory, also reject you, Azrael Shepherd as my mate! I hope the Moon Goddess will curse you to never find your true happiness ever again! I hate you to the moon and back, Azrael Shepherd!!!"
I heard her words in my head again. I remember her beautiful face, which was filled with tears. Two different colors of eyes were full of hate and disappointment. I f*cking disappointed my mate.
'I'm sorry…' I said to my wolf, but he never replied. He's also angry with me.
I know I am the dumbest of the stupidest werewolf on this planet! I groaned and ran again towards my packhouse. As I reached my packhouse, I trotted into my room, saying nothing to my pack members. I slammed my body into the mattress the moment I reached my room. I buried my face into the pillow, then screamed at the top of my lungs. My heart was still aching and for the first time, I cried.
I need Alexandria Gregory. I can't continue living because of the guilt I felt. And I will forever blame myself if Alexandria won't want to see me again.
She's also hurting. I can feel it. My heart is also crying in agony. This feeling is all new to me. And it was because of Alexandria Gregory. The girl who stole my heart the first time I saw her.
"But you are my mate! You can't deny that!"
Her voice rang in my head again, and it repeated, again and again. And it was eating me alive.
F*ck it! I have to see her and take back my words.
'Matthew, any news?' I said to Matthew again, using mind-link.
'Alpha, the girl was missing. Her pack is looking for her now.'
'I have to go, Alpha. I'll talk to you about all the details later.'
I stood up and pacing back and forth. Did she leave? Did she leave because of me? F*ck! This is my fault. I have to find her first.
I quickly stormed out of my room and ran towards the forest as fast as I could. You can't leave me, Alexandria Gregory. You just can't leave me hurting because of my stupid decision.
[Alexandria’s POV] Layla and I climbed on the tree to rest and sleep to avoid werewolves and any animals from attacking us. But I couldn't sleep, because my heart was still aching. I let my tears flow down on my face and I promise to myself that I will only cry tonight. I will never cry again because of Azrael. How could he reject me? I waited for him for my entire life. "Alex, are you crying?" Layla whispered. I wiped my tears in silence. "It's nothing, Layla," I mumbled back, but deep inside me, it hurts like hell. "You can tell me, Alex..." I sighed. Maybe telling it to Layla will help ease the pain I'm feeling. "I've met my mate today," I said, and she gasp
They all looked at me like I had grown two heads. “Mister, why did you call me a vampire? I am a werewolf and I came from Blueming Pack.” I said, and their eyebrows furrowed, then eyed me thoroughly. “I can smell the vampire and wolf's blood on you. Who are you?” another werewolf spoke with a serious expression. His gaze fixated on me as he scanned me thoroughly, like prey. “I don’t know what you are saying,” I said, confused. “You’re also a witch! Who are you?!” a brown werewolf stepped forward while glaring daggers at me, then growled. Her eyes turned bright yellow. Now, I don’t understand what they’re saying. Layla shivered while gripping tightly at my waist. Four groups of packs forgot they were rivals for a moment,
“It’s weird...” Tristan mumbled while looking at the deer. “What’s weird?” I asked, eyebrows furrowed. “The deer has no blood,” he uttered. “What?” Anna let out, then stood up and walked closer to Tristan. Anna gasped when she saw the deer. I have to think of a quick explanation. Yvette also looked at the deer closer, “Look, there’s a bite on the deer’s neck!” Yvette said with eyes widened. Then they look at us questioningly. “Oh, we haven’t noticed it. We were hungry, so we didn’t look closely. It didn’t smell bad, so we thought someone killed it recently.” I said calmly and shrugged. They don’t have to know that I did it. “It looks like they sucked all the deer’s blood,” t
I kept hearing Layla calling me nonstop. She was still looking for me. I sighed and went up to the surface. I walked out of the water and sighed while looking at my wet clothes. Still, there were bloodstains on my clothes. It didn't wash off completely besides staying in the water for long. Ugh, I need to change. I should find Layla. I close my eyes and track Layla's scent. She's now in the middle of the woods. Damnit! I also felt another scent around Layla. I run as fast as I can, like a flash. My eyes darkened when I noticed a brown wolf staring at Layla. My anger rises and quickly pins the wolf to the ground when the wolf is about to attack Layla. The brown wolf was strong and scratched my skin. Blood oozed in it, but it healed quickly that made the wolf flabbergasted. My vision changes color and now it's dark red. I growled then I felt my fangs growing lo
"Alex, it's so weird. If you are also a vampire, why didn't you get burned in the sunlight?" Layla asked, confused. Her eyebrows furrowed together. She was thinking deeply. We were currently walking in an open field. It was all grass and the afternoon sun hit our skin. We don't have any idea where we are now. We were walking for almost two hours and my feet were aching. I just shrugged my shoulders and then said, "Is it because I am also a werewolf?" "Maybe yes, maybe no?" she said while shrugging her shoulders. "You know what? Let's stop thinking about that, it's stressing me out." I said nonchalantly. Layla chuckled and nodded. "Do you think we will find the Tibbertan Mountains?" Layla mumbled out of the blue. Bu
Queen Elisha glares at me. "How did you know?! No one should know!" she spat furiously. Her fist was clenching. The ground was also shaking, and the wind blew furiously. "Can you control your temper?" I said calmly while rolling my eyes. "Look, I saw your past. I didn't mean to see it, it just flashed in my head when you touched me." I explained. Her eyes narrowed more. "I don't believe you. Who are you??!" "As I said earlier, I don't know. All I know is that I am different from everyone else." The ground stopped shaking, and the wind came back to normal. She sighed and studied me intently. "I can't even figure you out, which is strange. You smell like a werewolf, a vampire, and then a witch. Are you a hybrid or something? Who are your parents?" I was stunned.
Sabrina's house was so big and beautiful. Big chandeliers were hanging from the ceiling. The tiles were white and black; the wall was jet black and there was a painting hanging on the walls. Oh, a typical house of a witch, but the interior was nice. But it wasn't creepy, it felt so comfortable. Maids in uniform suddenly piled up and greeted us. My mouth hung in awe. "Prepare the guest room," Sabrina ordered the maids. "And prepare some food." "Yes, Your Highness." All the maids said in unison and left, one by one. "Nice house," I mumbled. "Thanks. Follow me." Sabrina said and walked towards the stairs. Layla, Michelle, and I followed her in silence. It fascinated me how the interior of the house was designed. The stairs
Sabrina brought Layla and me into the mall. Michelle is not with us because she had some important things to do. There are many people lingering around the place. I'm not comfortable around these people. I always reminded myself that these people are humans and I can't harm them. My blood thirst is worse here. But Sabrina planned this for me to control my thirst, which was so difficult. I am trying so damn hard not to jump into the human's neck. It was tempting, especially that I can see through their blood all around their bodies like a scanner. I can hear people's heartbeats loudly and it was so tempting. "Hey! Sabrina!" My attention diverted to a woman who was walking towards Sabrina with excitement. The woman was wearing an off-shoulder floral dress. Her long wavy blonde hair was cascading down her back
