“Wow! Praise my luck,” Lisa mouthed, as she counted the banknotes. That eccentric man had given her twenty thousand dollars in cash!'Who carries this much money around?' She thought. It was enough to pay Jacob and run away from this hellhole. She hid half the amount in her jacket and moved towards her trailer, hoping to slip in undetected.
Always Evangelical, Miss Donald watched her as she opened her trailer door. Her glasses moved up her narrow nose as she surveyed Lisa. Her haggard appearance and the time screamed out “Returning from a sinful night “.
“She is so cursing me to eternal damnation,” Lisa thought.
Miss Donald shot her one last acid glance before the doors closed again.
“I have been judged,” Lisa thought ruefully.
She crept into her door and rapped her knuckles on the metal twice. Leaning against the wall to hold up, she heard the tell-tale footfalls approach. The door swung open to reveal a visibly worried Mary.
“Oh my God,” she gasped, looking Lisa up and down. She clutched her arm and yanked her inside.
“Where were you?” her mom said, with a hint of anger. “I was so worried about you”
“I was angry,” Lisa replied lamely.
“About what? Jacob was so worried about you. He has been out all night looking for you.” she asked, her arms crossed over her chest.
Lisa rolled her eyes, “yeah, right! He cares for you, that's why he was hitting you.”
“Don't talk to me in that tone, young lady!” Her mom said firmly. “Don't forget, he considers you as his daughter, overlooks your insolence. And what did you do in return? Ran off with his car. Despicable!” She said disapprovingly.
“About the car,” Lisa bit her lip.” I crashed it.” She said sheepishly.
“You did what?” Mary covered her face, horrified.
“Wait, let me complete. It wasn't my fault…that other guy…it was his fault.” Lisa lied.” He paid me for the damage on the spot. I have the money to pay Jacob.”
“You have money? How much? What did you do? Did you whore yourself out?” Mary gripped her arm rightly and shook her.
“No, mom, I would never do anything like that. Just hear me out. You don't have to stay with that disgusting man. We can leave this place.” Lisa said urgently.
Mary's eyes widened,” from where are you getting such ideas? Jacob is a good man, he protects us,” Mary sighed.
“And who will protect us from him, mom? “ Lisa quipped.
“Insolent child! I will pray more so that you get some sense. “ Mary replied.
Lisa shook her head in frustration. Her mom had to stop hanging out with Mrs Donald. A knock on the door stopped their conversation midway. Jacob was back.
********Ruben leaned back in his chair, took off his Bowtie and unbuttoned the top buttons of his shirt. The minute her scent had hit him, he felt his wolf surge like nothing he'd ever experienced. No battle or woman before now had ever summoned his spirit like this. He wanted her and there was nothing else in the world right at that moment. Just this enigmatic female standing proudly in front of him, challenging him, and drawing him in.
“Come in,” he shouted before Keith could knock on the door to Alpha's office. He could scent him.
“Heard you left the party quite early, didn't like anyone there ?” Keith said as he took the chair. Keith his second in command and a long-time friend was the pack beta.
“It was boring,” Ruben replied, while still looking up at the ceiling.
“Jennifer showed up last night. She was waiting for you. She left when you didn't turn up.” Keith said.
Ruben sighed, that woman was driving him crazy. Ever since he had met her in of the wretched parties, she had been calling non-stop and making a fuss. As far as he was concerned, they were not mates, and he wasn't interested in banging an Alpha's daughter. Which would compel him to take her as his mate. Her dad Alpha Black would be delighted, though. He didn't have a male heir and wanted a powerful Alpha as his daughter's mate to take over the pack. Ruben had no interest in being his son in law.
“Good, please ensure to keep me busy enough whenever she is around,” Ruben said.
“I don't understand why you hate her so much, you do need an heir.” Keith pointed.
“Not with her, did you send Fergy to where I asked?”“Yeah, I did, and may I know who is this girl he is supposed to protect?” Keith asked with interest, his Alpha rarely got involved in human affairs unless required.
Ruben opened his eyes and looked at Keith.
“You will know when the time comes. Help me sort this out.” His tone was so authoritative that Keith didn't pry more, even though he was curious.
He shifted his attention back to his primary concern for the moment. He sorted the reports in front of him into several piles. Reports about the raids in his territory, the reports about the packs believed to be behind the raids. The reports about the political situations within the neighbouring packs, and the pile he hated most, the reports on who within his pack may be helping the raiders. He growled his frustration. He had read the reports over and over looking for a pattern or connection and was yet to find one. Furthermore, he needed to keep himself busy until the date.
Lisa slipped into a tight silver dress. It was one of the few dresses she owned since she hardly ever had a place to wear them. She had gotten it for a wedding when her mom was in a mood to splurge, and she was glad she was having another chance to wear it.As expected, Jacob had shut up the moment she had thrust the bundle of cash at him. He didn't even care how she got it. Her mother had berated her and grilled a little, but Lisa had stuck to her story. She had hidden her share of the money. It was enough to escape from this hellhole.
She arrived at the designated spot and as expected, a sleek black Mercedes stopped near her. She fidgeted nervously with her hair, as Ruben stepped out.
Furthermore, she was suddenly very aware of her surroundings. She looked up at the giant of a man looming over her. For a moment, she could hardly breathe as she took him in. She had a sudden insane desire to run her fingers through his silky strands. His lips were quirked in an almost smile, but his green eyes looked almost angry. She wondered how those hard planes would look out of his dress shirt and trousers. He was so confident, well put together. What could he possibly want with someone like her? She blushed slightly, as she realized she was mentally undressing him. His smirk increased as if reading her mind.
He was holding a single red rose and a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Lisa covered her mouth in an unsuccessful attempt to stifle the giggles that were threatening to break free.
“Too much?” Ruben asked.“I just didn't expect you to bring gifts,” she explained.“It's your birthday today, right?” He asked with a puzzled look.
“Yeah, it is, it's thoughtful of you to bring me those.” She said, indicating the flower and the chocolates.
“Happy Birthday,” he mumbled before offering them to her.
She took the proffered gifts then looked around, a little unsure of what to do with them.
He saw her dilemma and opened the back door of the car, gesturing for her to keep the stuff there. She placed the flower and chocolates on the back seat and climbed into the passenger side of the car.
“So, where are we going ?”
Lisa waited a moment but when he didn't reply she realized that he was staring intently at her. She looked down at her dress, worrying that there might be something wrong with it. Seeing no problem, she looked back up at Ruben.
“Do you not like the dress?” She asked worriedly, “I didn't know where we'd be going, so I didn't know what to wear. If this isn't okay, I have nothing else to wear.”
He just smiled as she babbled about her clothes.
“The dress is fine.” He reassured her and looked ahead.
“Shall we go then?” Ruben asked, offering her his arm.
“Yes, but where?” Jessica asked."Búraló it's a nice club, it's quite popular among the young crowd.” He replied he didn't specify that he also owned it.
“That's a weird name, Búraló is Gaelic for wolf,” she mumbled.
"How do you know Gaelic?" He asked curiously.
“I took language class in school, I like old dead languages.” She said, making him chuckle. “What else do you like?” He couldn't help being curious about his mate. He had asked her on a date to pacify his wolf, who getting antsy. He was still not sure if he would claim her just yet. “Track sport, books.....and….,” she was going to say to Steve but then stopped. She had been so busy thinking about the mysterious Ruben that she had forgotten all about Steve's betrayal. He had not called her, even though it was her birthday. She sighed and brushed away that thought. Tonight she wouldn't think about this though, tonight she was going to enjoy and let loose. She eyed Ruben slyly, maybe get rid of her V card as well. “Did Jacob trouble you?” Ruben asked suddenly, breaking her reverie. “No! The money was enough to shut him up, thank you for saving my life and my hide.” “I told you helping others is my thing,” he chuckled. She took a dee
The first thing that Lisa noticed was that Ruben's eyes turned a strange grey-green as he grabbed her hand. It was back to its normal self within a flash. She blinked, this was the second instance she noticed something strange with his eyes. Maybe it was a reflection of the neon lights? Maybe he had some medical condition which she was unaware of? She dismissed the thought.The second thing she noticed was that an electric current seemed to pass from him into her, where he was holding her wrist. The spark shot up her spine and flowed out to her nipples and down to her very core. She'd never felt anything like it and stood transfixed, staring into his eyes. He moved first and, taking her by the hand, led her to the dance floor. She felt as if she were in a daze, watching through a fog as he effortlessly moved through the crowd to the middle of the floor. There he turned to face her and, with his hands at her waist, pulled her close to his body. She felt drawn to his heat as sh
"Mine!" growled his wolf. "Mate. Now!'" His wolf wanted to grab her and plunge into her body right away. "She's human," he reminded his wolf, "and they're awfully frail." So, he struggled to control his inner beast. Besides, he didn't want her to be afraid of him. He tried to take shallow breaths to calm his raging need. He inhaled her intoxicating smell, which went straight to his groin. Unbelievably, his cock got bigger and harder than it had ever been before. Lisa was pinned against the door while Ruben took her lips again in a mind-numbing kiss and felt his hand at the back of her dress, caressing her through the fabric. Before she realized his intent, he pulled her zipper down and peeled the dress down her breasts. Lisa stilled, coming to her senses. She pulled her head back, breaking the kiss, and was about to tell him to stop when he held one breast in his hand and closed his lips around the bud. Her intended protest died before she could find her voice. The feeling o
Ruben De Montrose just lay there watching her sleep. He had hoped that his wolf would be satisfied now. She had fallen asleep due to the exertion and the bite. She would be knocked out for hours. He couldn't leave her now. His wolf won't allow it. He wasn't vain, but he knew he was in excellent shape. He just hoped she liked what she saw. He certainly liked what he had laying beside him. She was a human and knew nothing about him. So, he would have to be patient and teach her his ways, and a few other things he would enjoy teaching her. The thought made his loins tighten up again.***************The entire house was at a standstill, the present emotional state of the pack leader reverberated in the compound, even his betas did everything possible to keep their distance. The alpha was not to be disturbed. This was more of an emergency than whatever else anyone had to bring up.No one knew the identity of the female the Alpha had brought with him, he had ta
Lisa breathed with relief as soon Ruben left the room. She just wanted to get out of that place and forget about everything, she cursed the day she met Ruben. Her heart tugged a little at the thought of leaving him. But she couldn't stay, he was mysterious and who knows, even dangerous. Determined, she caught her sandals in her hands and looked for her purse. She found it on another chair and noticed that she had several missed calls on her phone from her mom.She left a brief message for her mom, telling her she was fine and stayed back at a friend's place to study. She was on the way home and then decided to call a cab, but she had no idea where she was. Thankfully, she was smart and knew how to use technology. She searched Google Maps to find her current location. She was surprised to see that the house was on the edge of a forest in the middle of nowhere. However, she managed to call a cab company and asked him to arrive at the nearest place she could recognize near the r
“Why is this damm place so fucking huge! “ Ruben cribbed, as he ran down towards the entrance. How Lisa managed to get out of the estate without getting lost was incredible. “Blame your grandfather for that, pup! I had told him the design of this house was stupid. But did he listen? No! Kids these days.” Elizabeth stamped her cane and shook her head. Elizabeth was perhaps the oldest werewolf in North America. Maybe the oldest in the world as well. She was rumoured to be 1500 years old. When different dynasties ruled Europe, she was there. When the Empires fell, she was there. She had lived through the civil wars, the world wars and every major historical event. Ruben and Andrea rolled their eyes. “What are you doing here, Elizabeth? You should be in your room, resting,” Andrea said gently. “How can I rest in this commotion ?” She turned her attention to Ruben, “Did you meet someone yet? Ruling alphas aren't supposed to be single.” She said d
The ancient trees towered over her as Lisa walked through the faintly visible deer path, strangely she felt safe amid the hushed stillness of the primaeval and remote place. She could hear the faint rustling of small animals in the underbrush, frolicking and foraging for food. The place was teeming with life, but the one being she was looking for was noticeably absent. She hurried excitedly along the faint trail, hoping that she would find her elusive prey. The sparkling lake water beckoned through the breaks in the trees. She trudged through the sweet-smelling knee-high grass, not caring as it lashed at her bare legs.“He's not coming,” she thought forlornly, shoulders drooping with disappointment. Sighing, she slumped down and sat on the ground, pulled her knees to her chest and wrapped her arms around both legs as she rocked to and fro to comfort herself.The faint yapping sound reached her first, and then the howling of several wolves ripped through the
Coach Johnson had the girls lined up.Vickie glared down the line at Lisa as she took her starting stance.“Ready, on your marks............GO!” Coach Johnson yelled. Suddenly, twelve girls took off around the quarter-mile track stretching around the football field. Vickie quickly took the lead and was about four body lengths ahead of the others.Lisa was blocked in by two girls, which squeezed towards the inside track. She looked up ahead and saw the bunch of girls running ahead. She couldn't go forward or to the right and the left was not an option, so she did the only thing she could do to get free. She glanced behind her and saw a space and suddenly stopped and watch as the group of girl's raced by.“Now we got a fair race,” she thought as she smiled and took off around the outside of the crowd. Running on the outside track increased the distance, but it didn't bother Lisa.Vickie heard a yell from the audience. She
