Lumaro can still visibly describes to himself the she-wolf in his dream last night. If she is his mate, he did not know how he could take her when she is in her wolf form. But she is beautiful as a human; too beautiful to be rejected. A thin smile peeped through the glistening eyes of Lumaro.
“Father, it is time for me to travel again… into the human world,” Lumaro told his father the next day. He is fully decided to find the woman in his dream. He sat on the chair at their Pack House’s dining hall and requested for a cup of coffee and waffles from one of their maid omegas.
His Alpha Father glanced at Lumaro whose eyes are showing some signs of excitement. “Why did you decide suddenly to travel to the human world now?”
“Because I saw her father; I saw the cursed daughter of the former Alpha and Luna of our pack,” Lumaro replied smiling.
“How?” Curiosity covered the face of the Alpha father of Lumaro while waiting for his son's reply.
I Her dream never left her mind until the time that she met Draeko during lunch. He brought her to one of his mansions. Right now, they cannot just dine in any restaurant around the province as it might cast public scrutiny. Grazziena could simply admire in silence the proof of wealth that Draeko and his family have. The mansion itself and all the things inside and around it are showing splendidly their affluence. She chuckled in her mind and felt a bit of fear and shame, for who is she to be chosen by Draeko? She is a mere piece of tiny dirt in Draeko’s toenail. “You like here Sweetheart?” Draeko asked pulling her close to him. Grazziena just made a quick smile and nodded. “Sir, the table is ready,” said a voice coming from one of the maids of Draeko. “Come, Sweetheart, let’s eat. I am actually starving that I am now seeing you as my mouth-watering meal.” Draeko teased Grazziena as he led her going to the dining area. She blushed shyl
I Grazziena has been dropped off by Governor Draeko’s driver in the University she chose to enroll for her first year in College. She went to the registrar’s office and she was being accommodated with such specialty being the crowned Ms. Albaya 2020. She got herself enrolled in just an hour as she need not have to line up on cue for enrolling students. Hers was a special lane; no lane at all, so to speak off. “Hello my honeybunch, you finished enrolling already?” that was Governor Draeko’s message that Grazziena received just a second after finishing her enrolment. She smiled and replied to him. “Yes, my love. I am done here already. I will be on my way home after this.” Grazziena smilingly sent her reply to Governor Draeko. Governor Draeko replied immediately. “You take care, Sweetheart. I am sorry, I cannot pick you up there as I have to meet some local government leaders. I will ask my driver to bring you home. I love you.” Grazziena smiled
I Grazziena became restless for a couple of days because of the new opportunity knocking on her door. She is thinking about the prize. It will definitely change her life and most of all her Papang and Mamang. On one hand, if she will not win, she will be wasting the one semester of her first year in college, for nothing. Aside from the fact that she might be at risk. Her secret might be discovered. As far as she knows, all candidates of the National Beauty Pageant need to stay in a hotel, in the capital, together. How could she be able to handle her shifting every midnight all throughout the process? No, she cannot risk exposing herself, her secret that might cause, not only losing Draeko but might cause her death. Now, she is really confused. She decided to inform her beloved Governor Draeko about it and her confusion. She admired Draeko's wisdom most of the time. Draeko listened well when Grazziena discussed to him the offered opportunity for her to be the
I Taken aback, Governor Draeko looked at Grazziena with a hurt expression. “Why didn’t you like what we do?” his voice was low. Grazziena felt a pang in her heart. How could she be able to explain without offending or hurting him? “Of course I like it, Sweetheart. It’s just that I am afraid that if we did it again, we might not be able to control ourselves anymore and I might get pregnant. I still wanted to finish my studies. I don’t want to disappoint Papang and Mamang and myself too.” She held his hands and kissed them both. He smiled with understanding and nodded. “Sweetheart I promise you, I will not take all your innocence until we got married. But please, don’t you deprive me to even touch or kiss you with passion,” his voice was pleading as he looked at Grazziena tenderly. A warm hand caressed Grazziena’s heart as she noticed the pain, yet it was overwhelmed by the love for her as can be clearly seen in his eyes. She grabbed his face and gave h
I Sitting inside the train Lumaro closed his eyes and vividly captured again her possible mate's face in his imagination. “She is beautiful and so alluring,” he whispered and a smile twitched on his lips. From the train, Lumaro alighted and took a cab going to the airport. He made a sigh as he boarded the aircraft that will bring him into the gate of the human world, where her mate is waiting for him; the cursed daughter of the former Alpha and Luna of the Cold Mountain Pack. He sat on the plane and felt it soar into the sky after few moments. He closed his eyes knowing that when he opened it again, he will already be stepping down the human world. When he stepped down into the human world, Lumaro has been amazed. His eyes wandered around and bulged in amazement. “Wow, those buildings that stood tall like our Mount Reveree, those wonder lights that flickered like our stars in the sky, vehicles of different sizes and gorgeous designs and… and women… a
I Lumaro checked out at the lodging house by three o’clock in the morning. He hailed a cab and asked the driver to bring him to the airport. He is excited; quite excited as he boarded the aircraft, which will bring him to the country where the Albaya province can be found. Six hours or more and he will be stepping his feet to the place where he will be meeting his mate at last. He sat on the aircraft silently and when it started to move, Lumaro closed his eyes with lips twisting with such a smile full of hope and excitement. Most probably he fell asleep for an hour when turbulence hit their aircraft making it swayed drastically, waking him up. He straightened his sitting position and glanced at the young woman beside him. “What is happening Miss?” he asked furrowing. The young woman faced him and her eyes suddenly fluttered with mouth gaping with words. “Oh… we … we’re hit by turbulence but we are fine,” she even stammered. Lumaro is l
IMel suddenly wonders who was that Sweetheart, Grazziena talked with over the phone. Was it Mr. Jervin Ty, her avid suitor? But as far he knows, she already told him that she is not yet ready to enter into any relationship. “Did Jervin Ty persisted?” he thought, confused.So, after Grazziena finished speaking with that someone she called Sweetheart over the phone, he cornered her with such an inquisitive look and raised eyebrows.“What?” Grazziena knitted her browse wondering why her best friend was looking at her with doubt and inquisitiveness in his eyes.“What? What? Ms. Albaya? Who is that Sweetheart of yours? You are keeping secrets from me?” Mel said feeling betrayed and offended.Grazziena was shocked. “Shhhh, quiet, I am planning to tell you about it in due time not here okay?”Mel gave her a sullen look. “Is he Jervin Ty, hmm?” he prodded at her.Grazziena shook his head. “No.” then she gulped some of her saliva and tried to
I The next day, Grazziena went to the city together with Mel. She decided to treat his best friend for lunch as gratitude for all the help that he is doing for her. He is such a friend who would do anything to support her in all her endeavors. Aside from that, she wanted to tell her what truly happened between her and Governor Draeko, who is now her boyfriend.Mel chose a pizza restaurant inside the mall. He ordered pasta, vegetable salad, and two rounds of regular pizzas of different flavors.While they were eating already, Mel asked, “Now tell me about Sweetheart.” Mel said without mentioning the name of Governor Draeko. Their code name for him is Sweetheart.With twinkling eyes, Grazziena told Mel what happened in an almost whispering manner, afraid that someone might hear them.“OMG, slut,” Mel shrieked teasingly and Grazziena laughed.“I don’t know Mel, but, I was not able to resist him because I really like him,” Grazziena affirmed an
