If the scene playing out not too far away from me was a movie, I would have to call it a bad scripted one, mostly from my perspective. I might have harbored thoughts of Garrett kissing his ex, which is rather alright as it hadn’t been too long since they separated after I came into my picture and my jealous instincts still considered her an intruder, but never did I expect such a scene to play right in front of me.
I wasn’t sure how I should feel, however, the only thing I could do now was to make excuses to justify the play out of the scene. Maybe I shouldn’t have gotten out of my room yet. Maybe, just maybe, I shouldn’t have listened in to their conversation which would have most likely prevented me from witnessing this bullshit from them. The deed has been done already, and I couldn’t be any less regretful that it actually happened.
‘Stop it, Lia!’ my subconscious kicks in, stopping me from the se
Five hours and more have gone by since Garrett almost ruined my main reason for being here. And more than five hours since I’ve been mad at him. An almost perfect moment got ruined all because he lost control of himself. It was justifiable, yes, but what wasn’t was that he almost had me marked.I wasn’t ready to be anyone’s possession yet. And neither did I want anyone having access to my thoughts and feelings for the next one week. Because I was starting to have genuine feelings for him does not mean he would make me his without my consent. I wasn’t even ready for something that would give away my purest intentions.Wait, did I just admit it? That I was having feelings for Garrett already? Damn, I really did. I think it’s for real, though, even with the terrible acts he had portrayed today.I’m not even sure if it’s a bad thing that I was getting into him already. I’
Been pacing about my room all day, with the hope that I will get my head back on track to do what I should have done a long time ago.I can’t explain how I am feeling now. And what could have triggered it in the first place if it hadn’t been that I read the worst thing found out the truth I have been looking for, or because I feel so betrayed. I can’t tell the exact thing that is making me feel so messed up but I know I’m not feeling too great.It took a single moment of truth for me to be ruined internally, mentally, and emotionally. Everything about my being had been crumbled all day. I still can’t believe I was dumb enough to believe that everything I planned for since coming here would go on so smoothly. And now that it is obvious that it isn’t going well, I can’t get out of here because I’ve been bound to this place in some way.I feel like shit. In short, I am shit. A
“I know I messed up—”“Of course, you did,”Garrett frowned at his sister after her sudden interruption. It got him pissed off that she had to, especially when he had a serious explanation to give out to her.It wasn’t until he realized who he was dealing with did he decide to calm down. Monica wasn’t the type of person to stay angry with as it would be him alone suffering the aftereffects.With a sigh escaping his lips, he decided to continue from where he stopped, hoping she wouldn’t do the same annoying thing she did not too long ago. “So, I said I messed up—”“And I just affirmed that you did.”The look on her face after she did that again made it seem like she didn’t do anything odd. And this only infuriated him more than he already was.“Monica
“Come in,” my voice wasn’t telling any confidence when I announce that. I’m not sure if I did the right thing by getting armed now, but there was no way to explain who is standing right outside. Whatever the case may be, the fact that I’m as troubled as hell was enough for me to seek protection from the only thing I had for that. When the door starts to creak open, I take in a silent deep breath to calm my nerves. Did that work? No, because it only made me more nervous than I already was. Was it a total coincidence seeing the alpha at a time like this? At a time where I found out the truth about myself? I would want to believe it so, but I’ve never had a reason to have a discussion or any of sort with him. The only thing I can believe now is that he has found out who I was and was ready to exterminate me like he did my pack. Garrett’s father, the alpha, had the usual neutrality on his face as he walks into my room,
Not one, but two shots went right through his left shoulder, sending him down to the floor almost instantly. I didn’t make a target before releasing the shots, as I had acted out of impulse. But I was lucky I didn’t hit his most vital organ which was his heart as I still have questions to ask him.I still have the pistol pointed in his direction, but the trembling of my hands only worsened. It was almost like I have no candid reaction to what I have just done even though I had no choice but to do so. It was a pure act of self-defense, but who would want to hear that?He was still alive, that, I could tell as his groans filled the air. The look of surprise that flashed on his face when he sat up to realize he was bleeding profusely was something I have no explanation for. I’m sure he couldn’t believe that a supposed regular gun with regular bullets would affect him, but he would be more surprised to know it was not.
<<The second phase of this series begins. Sit back and enjoy.>> The first phase tells us how Adaliah gets the vengeance she wants and her seeming love triangle with her mate and his ex. The second phase will be an epic showdown of Adaliah’s discovery of her true self and why she is considered a threat in the werewolf society. *The story is a slow burn so I hope you all can bear with me for it being such a slow paced story. I’m trying not to miss out a point though and if you have any suggestion, please fell free to tell me.
He was seated on the opposite end of four older-looking men, all clad in a similar robe-like piece of clothing with a shade of dark and red. The noticeable feature that could differ all four men was their faces which had no way of looking the same. The casual outfit of a button-down shirt and faded jeans made him stand out from the four men who had different reactions to staring at him. One had complete neutrality, another looked calm, the next one exuded creepiness, and the last looked a bit worried. Their reactions weren’t really his problem. His main problem was that he was here again to battle the same thing he has been battling with them for a while now — an issue he was tired of already. To keep himself calm, he had to clutch his right hand into a fist, almost digging his nails into his flesh. Considering their positions as highly respected personalities was the only reason he kept himself at bay. And on a de
The moment he shut the door behind him, he felt at ease, not minding the fact that he might have disrespected the elders inside the building he had gotten out of. He wasn’t even sure what to exude after his little-like outburst, but he did know he was going through a lot of emotions.He moved back, leaning on the wall. He had to close his eyes, running his hand through his hair to show how frustrated he was. A sigh escaped his lips soon after before he opened his eyes to take in the scenery just below the balcony he was on.The greenery was the major highlight of direct scenery outside the balcony, with his automobile being the only notable sight until he looked far into the distance where there were different buildings.Nothing of the scenery fascinated him so he decided to take off from there, heading down the balcony to get to his automobile which was idle in the pathway. Instead of the side where the driver&rsq
