Waking up every day at four am was honestly painful when I had to work and go to sleep at almost twelve am. But since I did not want to be late for school, I tried to finish the breakfast and lunch preparations earlier and then cook after coming back from the training. I was barely getting any sleep, but for the greater good, sacrifices were compulsory. When I came to the training ground, Mr. Alex had already arrived. We started the training as usual. An hour later, we heard a rustling and the sound of footsteps coming from the woods. We turned around and saw a figure appearing out of the forest, coming closer as the morning sun rays fell on a manly figure that came jogging toward us. When the figure got closer, and the skin of a very hard muscled naked chest started to shine under the sun, the face became clear. It was Alessio. Mr. Alex leaned close to my ear, asking in a low voice, “What is alpha doing here?” Well, dip me in sugar and call me a donut because I was just as clueles
A week more had passed by with Mr. Alex teaching me combat and fighting stance in our private lessons. Even though it was extremely exhausting for me to work constantly, and my body was literally breaking down, I could not dare to back down. “You need to take me down now.” Mr. Alex stood two feet away from me and announced, “to make it fair, I will be using only one hand and you are allowed to use all your limbs to take me down.” “That does not sound fair.” I muttered, grinning. Wouldn’t it be too easy? “When you have as much experience as me, kiddos like you start to look like ants that I would absolutely crush if I used all my power.” Mr. Alex retorted smugly. “Alright. Let’s see about that.” I laughed and pushed forward to attack. My first move was to throw a punch at his face, which he immediately dodged, as I had expected. His arm shot out to grab me which I tried to fight off as if the arm was a "thing." It was like a wild animal that was trying to eat me. I tried to lunge
Alessio “And the rest of the interior is finished?” I asked, staring up at the large, high end, posh looking hotel from afar. “Yeah,” Daniel nodded, “from the very bottom of the hotel to the roof, everything has been arranged just as you had guided. Hotel inspection is done and the inauguration is next week.” I took a breath of satisfaction and dropped my gaze to look at the entrance. Several men and women stood there, talking to each other excitedly. “Their positions and salaries are set?” I asked, staring intently at a five year old kid running into her mother’s arms. “Yes. Since they all were rogues, no one was ready to give them any work. But since you brought them here, all of them have been putting their souls into doing everything they can to become a good employee of this hotel.” Daniel smiled, “you have done good, alpha.” “It is nothing.” I muttered, turning around to walk back to the car, “everyone deserves to live the way they want. Keep an eye on them, Daniel. Make su
Mia Since it was the weekend, everyone was having a longer sleepy morning, well, except for omegas, of course. After placing the breakfast on the table as I was about to walk back into the kitchen, my eyes fell on a familiar figure standing by the couch in the hall, staring at me. I approached him with hesitant steps. Mr. Alex did not look angry like yesterday anymore. There was a frown covering his forehead but aside from that, there was no sign of agitation. When he saw me coming toward him, he straightened. Bowing in front of him in respect, I muttered, “Good morning. Are you looking for someone?” “You.” he responded, making me surprised. Had he been waiting in the ground since morning? I thought I had already informed him yesterday that we will not be continuing the training anymore. “Mia, I am sorry for losing my patience yesterday,” he spoke up before I had a chance to say anything, “as a teacher, I should have been more understanding and calm.” he clasped his hands together
Alessio “Why is mom here?” I flipped around, gritting the words through clenched teeth. Daniel leaned against the small, round dining table in the hall, his one hand in his pocket and the other one resting on the mahogany surface, “Why can’t she be here?” “Don’t fuck with me right now, Daniel.” I growled, staring at the food that had been prepared and brought in especially to this room by mom’s orders. She wanted to have a ‘special’ dinner with close people instead of with other pack members on her first day of return. I did not mind the dinner, I did mine the reason she had been brought here for. Daniel straightened, his both hands slipping inside his trousers as he glanced toward the door before answering me, “I told you, you need help to make a decision about Mia. You and I have been here for over two months now and you have not returned to our pack. You stay here despite this not being your home, you tell me you don’t want a relationship with her but you still can not help your
As I walked out of the pack house the next day, I heard the sound of commotion from the pack ground. At this time in the morning there was usually the sound of warrior’s practising their moves but today it was unusually loud and chaotic. Curious, I moved toward the ground only to find a crowd gathered at the bleachers, cheering madly. A girl and a man double her size were fighting each other on the ground, their fierce moves were being pounded on each other at the speed of lighting. I could not even see when an attack landed and the next one came. The man was a heavily muscled warrior with tattoos running from his hand to up her biceps. His body was like those fighters in the arena that we usually saw in big wars. The young girl was perhaps in her early twenties, a tall one at perhaps five point seven height, but still shorter than the man. She wore leather pants and a sleeveless vest that hugged her form tightly like a second skin. Her ponytail flew in the air as she moved. The man
“What are you doing at the pack house?” I asked as he came to stand in front of me. “Came here to met someone,” he replied with a smile, “the thought since I am already here, why not have dinner here as well today. Not a problem, is it?” “Of course not. Enjoy yourself. I have to go and cook.” I bid him goodbye and walked toward the kitchen while Hardy turned around to sit on the couch with other people. It was weird to see him make himself so comfortable here as he was a new person to the pack. And he came here to meet someone? I wondered who? A girlfriend maybe? Shrugging off all the thoughts, I went inside the kitchen to cook dinner. Soon the table was set up and everyone had arrived, taking their seats. As usual, omegas were the last ones to take seats after serving everything. As I was about to go and take my usual seat, I noticed someone else had already occupied the place. I stilled for a moment, hesitant and kind of more than hurt for some reason. Burying down my feelings, I
Shock ran through me and I flinched back like I had been hit. My palm shot up to wipe off my mouth immediately as a sensation of throwing up right then and there ran through me. My face must have showed my feelings clearly because when I lifted up my eyes, I saw the hurt flashing through Hardy’s eyes and the smile on his face disappearing.“Sorry. I-” I started to apologise for my lack of manners but he interrupted me,“No, I am sorry, I was just too much attracted to you.” he said with a small, uncomfortable smile while scratching the back of his head cheekily.His words gave me a bit of assurance and confidence. I straightened on my feet and flicked him on the forehead with a smile, “Don’t do that again. You are not my type!”Embarrassment covered his face as he groaned, “You just gave me my first rejection.”“This is the only first you are gonna get from me.” I smirked, and walked away to go to the class.***As I went to Alessio’s room to clean up, I noticed that he was not there.
