I followed Nora and sat beside her at our dining table. The Zenith Hall was enormous, it was the only Hall that could contain all factions of the wolves.
Right now, it was empty so we sat comfortably and waited for the other Omegas to come in and join us.
Nora dried her hair with her towel since that was the only thing that needed drying, our training suits were waterproof. That was a privilege we enjoyed for today just so we would not wet the Hall, usually, we wore our thin black and bronze suits for training that was definitely not waterproof.“ Dry your hair for goodness sake Emerald, you’re dripping all over the place. Can’t have the betas thinking that we’re sloppy.” Keith said to me and I glared at him before I took the towel on my table and dried my hair with it. When I was done I dropped the towel beside me on the bench and sure enough, they were all staring at me. “ I don’t understand how your hair is that long and perfectly beautiful even after training. You’re really lucky to be so flawless at everything, my hair is already tangled and messy.” Reyona said and I smiled at her. “ it’s still beautiful though,” I said and she smiled back at me. When all the Omegas had entered the hall and sat at their positions, the betas stepped in in their black and silver training suits. They were so in form and in tune with one another, you could see some of them were very fit because of how you could make out their muscles even through their thick suits.I quickly spotted Alan, he and Freya were formerly Omegas but they both made the cut and joined the betas for two years now. His parents were surprised because no one in their family had been able to move out of the Omega rank and that was something Alan and Freya were proud of. As he walked past us, he looked at me from the corner of his eyes and smirked, some of the girls around me giggled. I could never get used to that, Alan had grown buff and the girls loved it, even top female betas thirsted for him in the open and that just got on my nerves, though Freya didn’t care.She too walked past me and gave me a subtle nod and I smiled at her.“ Alan is really handsome, don’t you think?” Reyona said and I sighed.“ He’s like a brother to me, I don’t think of him that way,” I said and they laughed.“ You lived in the same house as Alan when he was just a scrawny Omega and now he has that kind of body and you still deny the fact that you two have something for each other? He literally couldn’t take his eyes off you and he’s still staring,” Nora teased and I rolled my eyes.“ He’s just trying to make me feel less nervous, please give it a rest Nora,” I pleaded and she smirked mischievously. I stole a glance at Alan and wondered for the first time if he really saw me as anything more than a sister.
His parents took me in the second they told them that my stepfather threw me out and raised me as their own, he couldn’t possibly see me any different, could he?In this pack, few boys made the females shamelessly thirst for them and Alan had surprisingly become one of them, I even heard that he was dating Diane, Dracah's sister.
In my opinion, it was stupid for him to do so since when he turns eighteen, a day will come when he would discover who his mate is and that day, both of them would be heartbroken when they discover they won’t be each other’s mate.“ It’s Dracah!” I heard some girls squealing as Dracah walked down the hall with four of the best betas in our set. Keiran, Ethan, Kourtney, and Janelle. These people were always together, they were the most feared of all betas and Dracah being the next Alpha was beyond a nightmare.
No one knew why Dracah was like that. He scared even our Masters or trainers just by looking at them with his gold eyes.Looking at his appearance one would just know that he was trouble. He was very tall, he had a very healthy, silky, black hair that even girls couldn't boast of having and I heard he barely cut it. His hair reached his waist but it was knotted at the ends so it must've been longer than that.
I always imagined that he was sculpted by the moon goddess on a very good day and that was why his face in entirety was unrealistically perfect. His skin was tanned because he trained harder than everyone else under the scorching sun and his sharp jawlines were a feature I bet the goddess spent days to perfect.
Everyone always doted on how uniquely shaped his lips were and if you looked at him from the side, his profile was dangerously enticing. Some girls looked forward to watching him eat just so they would watch his Adam's apple move more frequently!
I didn't like being around them even if like them I had a crush on him because they were too annoying sometimes. Dracah's body proportions were another thing that he was undeniably too blessed with.
For me, of all his charming traits his eyes were the most noticeable thing about him, they changed colors based on how he was feeling. Right now his eyes were pitch black, I heard that meant he was calm. When he gets angry, it becomes gold, when he’s enraged red, and when he’s happy it becomes blue.As much as we all had secret fantasies and hopes that Dracah would look at us for once whenever he walked past any of us, we all knew that his eyes functioned as if they are meant to see only those that matter to him - his family, those four betas with him - and also his sweetheart Yvonne.
Everyone suspected she would be his mate but I didn't think so if anything he fancies her and that's all.He ignored the giggles of the girls who watched as he made his way to where only he and his friends sat and when he got to where I was seated as always, I turned to face the table because I didn’t want to look at him like the other girls were. I sighed and turned around when I was sure he had passed me but I almost let out a scream when I saw Dracah in front of me. He bent down and placed his hands on the table with me in between his hands, the space between us was almost non-existent.For the first time since I’ve known him, he spoke to me and said in his ocean-deep voice,” Why do you always do that?” I swallowed hard because the only thing I was thinking about was how to stop my heart from beating so fast. If I failed at controlling myself, he would know that my heart wasn’t beating fast because I was afraid but because our proximity excited and aroused me – that would be a disaster!
Luna Dracah's eyes were flaming red as he glared at me, I knew better than to simp for him at a time like this so I looked away from him. " I’m sorry, I just didn’t want to stare,” I said, then someone tapped me gently making me have a brief blackout. “ Are you okay? You were mumbling something weird,” Nora said to me and I looked around, Dracah was seated with his friends on their table and they seemed really invested in whatever they were talking about. His eyes briefly met mine but I looked away. “ So, Dracah didn’t talk to any...of us?” I asked and she scoffed. “ Of course not, he just walked past us, ignored our giggles, and called his sweetheart Yvonne to sit with him. I don’t know what he sees in her.” Nora said as we all settled down. “ Wow, our Luna is really beautiful!” Reyona sa
Luna “ The end of the demon child starts with us all!We shall train, put our emotions aside and break ourbones if we must! Because she whose destiny is tobring us wolves to ruin must be destroyed.We are the end of the demon child!” This was our daily chant before any training regardless of your rank in the pack. I’ve never understood why we recited this rubbish every morning before training but the wolves strongly believe there is a demon child from Sigard whose destiny is to kill them all. That to me was absurd. I never trained telling myself that I would someday be able to kill this so-called demon child, it was a myth - I mean I lived there and there was no demon baby or whatever! I couldn't believe they were training to kill a child. Rather than obsess over a lie, I trained because I wanted to desperately prove to myself that I wasn’t as useless as my father thought
Dracah “ she’s my mate!” I declared and everyone kept quiet. I knew they couldn’t believe it and neither did I. This girl is someone I didn’t even know existed until when she joined the betas and what’s more suspicious is her scent. It’s different, irresistible, it’s something inexplicable – and when I kissed her, no words could describe how light-headed I felt after. I may not know her well but I sure as hell won’t let anyone touch her. I’ll keep her at the Trojan quarters until the next full moon when we will all turn for the first time – if she really is my Luna then it would be revealed that night. Until then I won’t accept her, declaring her as my mate is good enough. I need to be careful about her. “ Are you sure Dracah, that’s a very huge declaration you’re making?.” My mother was saying as she picked up some herbs one after the other in the woods. “ Mother, did you call me here because of this? I
Luna We sat there quietly and watched the Omegas train from across the lake. He said not a word to me and neither did I. I mean, what could I say? I never spoke to him well before in my life yet I always had the biggest crush on him – a crush I buried deep because I knew I should be wary of him. Our first conversation was that night in the woods when he suddenly kissed me. I flustered when I thought about how it felt like to be kissed by Dracah and then the longest conversation we had was when we fought today. But deep down, I doubted Dracah was right about me being his mate because I was an enemy. “ What are you thinking about?!” he asked, startling me. “ I was just…thinking about us,” I admitted. “ Us?” he asked softly and I looked at him in surprise. “ Why do you always do that? You always look surprised at literally everything I do.” He said. “ I – it’s just that I’ve never actually he
Luna I could barely breathe as I watched Keiran’s eyes dart from me and then to the ground as he said, “ there’s a Sigardian in our midst.” Dracah looked at me and I almost started begging but Rue stopped me, “ it may not be you” she said but I found that so hard to believe. “ Emerald your boobs are umm…” Keiran was trying to say but the look Dracah gave him to shut him up. Dracah looked at me and I gave him a questioning look when he bit his lip to keep him from laughing and pointed at my chest. I almost died of embarrassment when I saw that one of my breasts was literally sticking out of my bra and it looked weird through my shirt. " Oh my God!" I shrieked and turned around to adjust my bra but Dracah slid his hands through my top as he helped me out. I was scolding myself and wondering just how stupid and clumsy I was that I didn’t notice my bra mishap but when his hand touched my skin I forgot all about that a
Luna He would kill me if he finds out what I am, that’s the only truth that exists about the two of us. I shifted uncomfortably as I watched the teacher mash several herbs in a small mortar. “ This is how you make a quick remedy for brutal wounds,” Miss Doreen our potion instructor said as she motioned at the purple paste in the mortar. I gagged and almost puked because of how bad it smelled, but that didn’t go unnoticed by her. “ A true potential Luna,” she said and everyone stared at me. “ What?” I asked and they looked at Miss Doreen since it was her statement that drew their attention to me in the first place. “ Well, a Luna wouldn’t need to make herbs out of leaves to heal any of her people because she has the gift of healing in her bloodstream.” She said with a smile but I was feeling very edgy. “ I don’t exactly see what that has to do with me,” I said, folding my hands but Freya nudged me with her elbow
Luna I paced up and down in the large room I was taken to. It was beautiful and warm, just how I liked it but it was boring. This was nothing different from prison because no one can come to see me until the full moon. The only persons allowed to come in here are the aids of the Alpha. They came in earlier to give me soap and toiletries for my evening bath. They even gave me clothes and food, it was obvious that I was being treated like a Luna already and I wasn’t happy. I lay on the bed and my mind drifted to my stay in Sigard. I never was happy there either since I was ostracized by my sisters so badly that eighty percent of the population didn’t know that my father had a fifth daughter. I remembered how my sisters would make me wear a veil over my face because they said I was too hideous to go around walking with my face killing people. The worst was when they said the ugliest thing about me was my hair, and that it was just as red as the b
Luna They kept me locked in the room till the next morning. I had no idea what they used to shut the door because I couldn’t break the door and Rue wouldn’t help me either, if she wasn’t so stubborn I would’ve been able to jump out the window but my fear of heights was something I couldn’t overcome without Rue. The loud clanking of whatever large padlock they had used in locking me in, woke me up from my sleep. I didn’t even realize that I slept! How could I have slept when Alan’s life was in danger?! I would not be able to forgive myself if anything happened to Alan. I quickly sat up on my bed so that they would not think I slept even a bit last night. Janelle walked in with the padlock in her hands and stared at me with judging eyes. “ Dracah has summoned you to the Lycan square,” she said and dumped the padlock on the floor. “ You fucked up Emerald, never has any heir apparent been this humiliated
