I started gagging and choking as I felt the intensity of the presence of someone who’s gripping my neck and lifting me into the air. Faint screams started to form into my lips and the next thing I knew someone is shaking my body and shouting at me.
“ W-What--?” I asked when I saw the worried face of Alpha Nicholas in front of me. He looks constipated as anxiousness consumes his body.
The fine lines at the gap of his brows tells me that I am once again being haunted by my nightmares. “ You’re shaking,” he pointed out and looked at my hands which trembling severely. My mouth gaped at the sight and evidence of how afraid I felt earlier.
“ Apollo wants to talk to Devon,” Alfredo’s hoarse voice intervenes my words as soon as he stepped inside of the prison cell. He looks smug and cold. I didn’t have the chance to blurted out how scared I am earlier.
“ Ah!” I screamed as I pushed Apollo to the wall using all of the strength that I have. He landed on the ground face-first and groaned.The wind roars and I can feel all of my energy and hatred coming out of myself. “ Leave them alone!” I shouted and attacked him once again. I don’t know where is the courage coming from but the only thing that I have to my mind is to save both of the Gibbous twins and kill Apollo.“ Don’t attack him--” I heard Alpha Nicholas say in my head but the conversation was cut off as soon as Apollo rose from his feet.“ Mindlinking is not effective here,” he teased and the doors opens, revealing the face of Alfredo. Gone is the cold and stoic expression that he’s always showing. Sweats are visible at his neck and the way how his veins are popping out of his muscular arms, I am sure that he’s more than livid.He attacked Apollo. “ You told me that you wil
“ Don’t listen to him! Ah!” Alfredo attacked Apollo once again. He looks like he’s ready to kill him at this moment but I don’t know what to think. It was right there, right in front of my eyes, I saw how an innocent girl got just bitten by my beloved.Apollo laughed and dodge every punch of Alfredo. “ Really? I’m just doing you a favor! Remember them?! Remember how they killed your lovely girlfriend in front of your eyes?!” Apollo screams at Alfredo wanting him to remember and turn his anger to the Alpha twins.I took a step backward. I don’t know what to think or feel at the moment. The trust that I have for the Alpha twins is strong, I know that they will not do that kind of thing but I hate my instinct and my heart for telling me that Apollo wasn’t just conceptualizing things.“ You saw what you saw, daughter. Tell her, Alfredo!” he shouted once again and attacked Alfredo making him knee
“ But he didn’t know that right?” Apollo grins and then the door opened, revealing Alpha Nicholas, bleeding.Mistakes. It was a mistake, a simple mistake that I wish will not haunt me in the future but it ended up stumbling in my feet and shaking my world. The world that was created and bonded by the curse of the moon goddess.Alpha Nicholas dropped in front of me. He looks like he needed immediate treatment but I was too scared to even lift my finger and touch his face. “ A-Antonio….”he muttered silently. My eyes widens and I looked around to seek Alpha Antonio.“ Don’t worry, I’m not that devil. Antonio is hmm…healing? He’s safe, for now,” he grins. His large hands gripped a handful of Alfredo’s hair, making him look in our direction. His eyes are red and there is something about his expression that told me, he is, as of this moment, dangerous.He howls l
“ Who would it be, Antonio or Nicholas?” Apollo asked while still choking Alpha Nicholas. His eyes are getting smaller and smaller every minute that it passes and I can literally hear him chasing his breath.Thorne tapped my shoulder. “ Choose wisely, Thane,” he managed to say. I hit his hands away and pushed him enough for him to land on his face to the floor.“ I am Devon,” I shouted and glared at Apollo.Thorne clapped and made a sound. “ Thane was supposed to be your name,” he explained but it doesn’t matter. What matters the most is the sound of breathing of Alpha Nicholas, he was losing it and I needed to do something.“ Your time is running, Thane. Are you sure you want to argue about your name?” Thorne mocked, looking at Alpha Nicholas. His veins are showing and the breathing that he’s making is so profound that it echoes along the rough surface of the wall.I didn&rsqu
The sun is setting down, trees are succumbing to the ground as the tall grass wave their way in our direction. I don’t know where we are or what is this place, however, the feeling is too morbid like a storm had just landed right in front of my eyes especially when I know that Alpha Antonio was there, in Apollo’s den and I don’t know if he’s still alive.Beta Xander assumes the space beside me. I am outside of the house, just on the front step, and thinking which path should I go from now on.“ You should talk to him,” he said, looking at the scenery that is unfolding in front of us. It’s true that life will never be contented on giving dark storms to someone's life. After the cursing, my life has changed significantly. It was like another misery is unfolding in my life every time that I tried to take a step forward with hope and determination to clear my life.Beta Xander patted my back. “He’s healing
“ I don’t want to break the curse!”The words echo and create a vibration through the lake but it didn’t make me feel any better. Footsteps can be heard from behind me and I didn’t have to look to know that it was him, again.Gray, cloudy with drizzles of rain starting to pour right in my face, however, it didn’t make me feel anything, even the slightest remorse of what happened to Alfred. “ Am I like my father?” I asked him as I feel the drizzles start to dampen the skin of my face.“ You’re like…. Devon,” he joked but I didn’t get it. I turned around, only to see him holding a black umbrella with his usual leather jacket and annoying smile.He walks closer, enough for us to feel each other’s breathing. “ It’s been a month,” he slowly said as if it will heal whatever is burning inside of me. The insignia of the curse of the moon goddess is still inked i
He didn’t flinch when I enveloped him in a hug but what he did confuse me. His large arms pushed me away and his eyes looked at me without familiarity.“W-Who are you?” he asked in an angry tone. Beta Xander and I looked at each other. There is this voice inside of my head that wanted to punch him from leaving us but as soon as I heard what he said, I wanted to know what he meant by that.The tone of his voice didn’t sound like he’s joking. A soft hand touches his arms and I contain every jealousness inside of me just to stop myself from throwing a punch. The girl had a small face and small frame, she looks innocent and my heart breaks when I saw how Alpha Nicholas looked at her with so much care.“ Father wanted you to help him in the kitchen.” Her soft voice sounded like an enchantment, alluring Alpha Nicholas to obey her command and leave for the kitchen. I tried to chase after him but a firm grip on my hands made me
“ Is he going to be fine?”But Alpha Nicholas didn’t say anything. He looks so focused on giving Beta Xander the antidote while I am trembling out of fear and doubt. He remains focused that he didn’t notice that I already ripped his shirts on the chest part, where the evidence of our curse is visible.I never knew that I will find it useful, not until now. His eyes automatically landed on my bare chest as I also lifted my shirt and show him the same inking on my skin. The familiarity on the symbol makes me gulp while looking at his eyes, I wanted to confirm that he’s Alpha Nicholas and now that I have confirmed, ideas and plans comes rushing down my mind on how to make him remember what we are, what I am on his life.It feels surreal to make him remember me when I know that deep in my heart, Alpha Nicholas will never forget about me. Lilac must have done something to him, to make him forget and I am going to dig every
