The stares I was getting as Hector and Aidan declared that I was their mate was enough for me to wish for powers that could make me disappear. Now they have something new to hate me for, what have I done to deserve this?
Hector seemed to realize that he said something he normally wouldn’t, I could tell by the way he looked so shaken before his friends pulled him away.
“ Why did they take him away?” I heard someone ask.
“ Where Hector comes from, they do not admit or acknowledge a mate that isn’t a rogue. It’s believed to be physically impossible but Hector didn’t seem to have any difficulty saying that Kayla is his mate.” Said a boy who stared at me as he said these words.
“ Wow, she has two guys at school willing to fight each other when she is one of the most useless wolves at this school. Don’t even delude yourself and think that you’re special, you’re just an abnormality and I wish you’d just die alr- ”April was saying, she must've not realized that Aidan was still standing there, if she did, she wouldn't have said one evil thing about me.
“ Say that again April and I WILL RIP OFF YOUR HEAD.” Aidan said through clenched teeth as his eyes glowed red, causing everyone to step back from him.
“ Are you okay?” Becka asked, placing one hand on my shoulder and using the other to wipe something moist from my cheeks.
“ Why are you wetting my cheeks?” I asked and she scoffed, “ You’re crying you little – “ her words were abruptly cut short so I looked at her and found that Aidan was staring at her with a murderous glare, his eyes were still bright red. “ Do something, Kayla,” Becka whispered so faintly that only I and probably Aidan heard it.
“What were you going to say?” he asked as he approached her. I stared at him, realizing that this was his wolf being protective of me and knowing how terrible it will be for Becka if he actually hurts her in the process so I gripped his hand and held onto it.
My heart slammed against my chest when he turned and glared at me with his red eyes but it wasn't for long because the look in his eyes soon changed drastically and his gaze became soft. He even looked so pleased that I was holding his hand.
He didn't seem to have a single care in the world if we were being watched so he took my hand in his and kissed them, something he would never do before. His wolf was taking total control and I wasn't sure if he would like that when he regains himself.
“ Don’t listen to April, you're not useless Okay?” he said with a faint smile. It actually hurt because it took his wolf taking over him to realize that April is full of spite for me.
“ Come on, let’s go,” he said, holding my hand in his and fully prepared to take me with him to where he was headed.
“ Aidan!” Mr. Bentley, the school's principal called. Aidan exhaled roughly before he turned around. I saw Hector enter his office looking very angry.
“ There will be an emergency meeting about recent…occurrences. Your mother will take Kayla home you have to come to my office.”
Aidan reluctantly let go of my hand before he left but as he reached where Jason stood, he whispered something to him and he walked past April like she doesn’t exist.
Somehow I was glad that Aidan was finally giving in to the fact that we are undeniably meant for each other. But I also suspected that my life would become so tough now that Aidan has seemingly rejected April, she will not rest until she punishes me for this reason. The way she was glaring at me now was just a proof of my fears.
Immediately after Aidan entered the office, some teachers were on ground to send students back to their classes. At first, a good number of them didn’t want to go because they planned to eavesdrop at Mr. Bentley’s office, but when the penalty for loitering was tagged as detention with Luna Tia, everyone dispersed in seconds.
After our last class for the day, I watched as the clock struck three and everyone rushed out of the class to see if Aidan and Hector were still in Mr. Bentley’s office. Fortunately, we were on time. Aidan came out of the office smiling warmly at Hector who seemed just as pleased as Aidan.
“ Well… I guess they chose to share Kayla. As expected, such a whore!” April sneered at me before she walked away with her friends.
“ Kayla, come with me,” Tia said as she came out of the office. Without another word, I followed her outside the school. She found her car and motioned that I get in the car. She was so quiet throughout the ride, she didn’t say anything to me and I knew it wasn’t her fault.
She raised me and Aidan to love each other - but as siblings not to become romantically and sexually attracted to each other. I knew that she was having a hard time thinking of what to say to me, so I thought I should initiate the conversation.
“ I’m sorry,” I said, fiddling with my fingers. She glanced at me but didn't say anything. Eventually, she sighed and said, “ It’s not a bad thing Kayla…it’s just a bit shocking to know that Aidan has known you’re his mate but chose not telling you for almost a year…that’s ridiculous.” She lifted her hands from the steering wheel before gripping it again and frowning.
“ I was upset that he didn’t tell me either,” I said and she gave me a pitiful look.
“ It’s okay, he’s yours now. The only thing is Hector…did you feel any kind of connection to him? Or is he lying?”
“ He’s not, his scent distracted me a lot – quite like Aidan’s did.”
She sighed and made a turn to our house and after parking the car she said, “ go inside and don’t let anyone in until I get back,”
That was strange. Why wasn’t she coming with me? I took out my backpack and got out of the car but she stayed until I entered the house and shut the door. Immediately she saw that I was safely inside, she drove away at an alarming speed.
Something strange was going on…I just knew it. I took my bath and ate lunch before spiraling around the house as I tried to keep my mind away from what was truly haunting me. When no one came back after a while, I gave up and sat in the kitchen thinking about what it would mean for me to have two mates.
Why would the moon goddess give me such a match? I was already too favored by being resistant to wolfsbane, now I have two mates. The fact that I wasn’t strong seemed to be the only flaw that people saw in me, coupled with the fact that I wasn’t beautiful. I knew a lot of girls AND boys at school would hate me even more but I just thought to myself that there is nothing I will do that will make it change.
Because I feared what they would say about my strength, I let their words get to me and caused myself to be weak, so that they would at least give me a break from hating my wolfsbane resistance but even that didn’t pacify them.
With Aidan and Hector both being my mate, my wolf wouldn’t let me do that again. I won’t be able to control Sapphire when she wants to attack or fight and when that happens, I will be done for. Everyone might gang up on me.
I was still seated in the kitchen when I heard footsteps inside the house. There is no way anyone could’ve entered without me opening the door, Tia gave me her keys and I didn’t give them back. The keys were always with her since she was always the first to get home, so no one had any other key of their own.
I looked around and tried to think about how the person could’ve entered but what would that do for me?
"Are the rogues trying to kill me? It’s not my fault that Hector broke one of their rules and acknowledged me as his mate!" I lamented inwardly, hiding behind the fridge when the footsteps became clear and louder. Suddenly it stopped and I took a peek at the door but no one was there.
“ Kayla? It’s okay it’s me, Aidan.” He said and I sighed and came out from where I hid behind the fridge.
“ You scared me!” I said, heaving a sigh of relief as I ran my hands through my hair. I was going to glare at him but the look in his eyes as he watched me and folded his arms made me blush. I looked away immediately and heard him chuckle.
“ What are you doing here?” I asked.
“ It’s my house remember?” he said, standing in front of me. A few strands of his hair had broken loose from the perfect slicked back style he previously had and it made him look even hotter. Oh my goodness, I was so aroused just by the thought of his hair?!
He placed his hands around my waist and said, “ I know you’re upset that I knew about you being my mate, Kayla, but I was worried you’d reject me since you weren’t exactly moved to like me the way I liked you.”
I looked at him, wondering if he meant what he said about liking me. If he did then why did he-
“ I shouldn’t have dated April but the truth is, knowing you’re my mate kept me very emotionally and sexually tensed…” The look he gave me when he said sexually tensed struck so much desire and anger in me. I didn’t even want to hear what I thought he was going to say.
“ April was just a means for me to get rid of it since I couldn’t be with you until you turned eighteen. I hope you can forgive me, I didn’t mean to hurt you. I swear that I'm telling the truth.”
“ Then why did you say to her that it wasn’t so easy to choose between her and me?”
“ Because I’m not heartless. I was considering her feelings because I thought she would be really upset if I broke up with her but I realized she didn’t really hold much attachment to the relationship anyway. I'm embarrassed that it took me this long to realize it” He said and watched me.
“ Kayla, please don’t use my foolish decision with April against me – I’m begging, give me another shot at this.” He said softly as he brushed my hair away from my face and looked at me with so much need in his eyes that I broke down in tears.
“ You should’ve told me, Aidan. I’ve had a crush on you since I was twelve! Didn’t you think that I might naturally like you?”
He looked up and bit his lip in regret before he looked at me again, “ I’m sorry, I was wrong... But we can start over. Just me and you.” He said, tightening his grip on my waist as he brought our bodies together.
“ Okay,” I said simply as I placed my head on his chest while he rubbed my back gently. I slightly pulled myself away from his embrace and looked at him. His smile slowly disappeared because he was now staring at my lips while biting his lower lip.
“ Are you ever going to kiss me?” I asked in a seductive tone that shocked even myself. He smirked and placed me gently on the kitchen counter, standing between my thighs. I gasped when he slid his hands through my oversized t-shirt and caressed my thigh because I have never been touched there before and he knew this.
“ Every time I look at you…that’s all I think about,” he said, his eyes never leaving my lips for a moment. I’ve always wanted to know what it felt like to kiss him or to touch his firm body but I was too shy to make a move.
He must've senses it because he leaned so close to me that my breasts brushed against his chest and it made me feel hot all over but he didn’t kiss my lips as I expected, instead he kissed my neck and kept placing hot kisses on my body until he reached my lips.
Knowing how much I’ve waited for this, how much I’ve imagined this, I was losing my mind just thinking about how it would feel like. My whole body tensed when he brushed his lips against mine softly. That slight contact was already eating me up and making me almost beg for more. I was still closing my eyes, when I felt his warm breath before his lips took mine in kiss much deeper and passionate than the first time.
I was consumed by the desire that erupted within me as his tongue found mine and he kissed me even deeper, moaning in my mouth and pulling me even closer to his body.
I gasped as I felt his hardness against my center and threw my head back as he kissed my neck and stroked my thighs sensually. I wanted him so badly - I needed him even more but I was such an inexperienced girl, how would I tell him?
I started to fiddle with his shirt and he immediately took it off, pleasing me with the view of his muscles and perfectly toned body.
He looked at my shirt as if he wanted to take it off but I got shy and slightly worried that he would not like my body. He chuckled and kissed my neck while I summoned the courage to take off my shirt. When I did, I watched as his eyes darkened in what I knew was lust and I was glad that he wasn’t disappointed. Without a single word said, he kissed me again and I struggled not to break the kiss with a moan as my breasts touched his skin.
“ Fuck Kayla…” he whispered in my ears. I felt proud because Aidan cursing and saying my name meant that he was enjoying this very much. I broke our kiss and threw my head back while biting my lips as pleasure filled my center, then I realized that I had been grinding against his bulge, I didn’t even know when I did that, I just knew that the pleasure was driving us both crazy.
I moaned and ran my hands through his hair as he took off my bra and cupped my breasts as though he was sizing it up. I closed my eyes and gasped as I felt his tongue trail along with my nipple before taking my breast in his mouth while his hands found their way to my center. I never thought I would be able to kiss Aidan let alone have him between my legs doing things I wasn't even aware could turn me on so bad.
His fingers were just beginning to stroke my center when I heard Tia yell his name as she knocked on the door. I jolted in fear and quickly got off the counter so I could pick up my shirt. Aidan cursed under his breath and ran his hands through his hair as he watched me put on my shirt.
“ Put on your shirt!” I was saying to him while I started towards the front door but it was already open by the time I reached the kitchen door. Tia and Alpha Kent were standing in front of me already with horror evident in their eyes while they looked at me and then at Aidan.
Kayla's POV When I turned around and saw that Aidan was still shirtless, I realized they must’ve figured out what we were doing. Embarrassment washed all over me as we all stood there silently – not Aidan though, he was unbothered. He opened the refrigerator and poured himself a glass of water, drank it in one gulp, and then poured another and walked up to me before handing me the glass of water. I didn’t know what to do so I just held the glass cup in my hand and looked at the floor. Aidan stood behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist before kissing my cheek, it betrayed me and must’ve become so red as I blushed because Tia seemed even more surprised than before. “ Aidan! We are literally in front of you!” she finally said, pulling him away from me and standing between us. “ So what? She’s my mate, there’s nothing wrong with that,” Aidan rebelled but all it took was one look from his father for him to behave. “ Is that why you two almost had sex?” He asked coldly. “ Dad-
Kayla's POV My eyes searched for who it was that poured the good on April and my heart skipped a beat when I saw that it was Hector. His eyes carried so much contempt and spite as he looked at April, he was dressed in all white from head to toe that I nearly thought it was an angel who saved me. “ I brought the rest of the goo for you April didn’t want to waste it.” He said, putting his hands in his pocket as he glared at her intensely. Even with all the splashing, a single whip of goo didn’t even touch him. “ What the hell is wrong with you?!” she shrieked as she got up and wiped her face so she could take a look at Hector. “ Hey, get up, take my hand,” Becka said as she extended a hand to me and pulled me up. “ I should be asking you that question since you orchestrated a prank that the whole school was in on, just so you could embarrass a girl that has never bothered you before” “ And how the hell would you know that she doesn’t bother me huh? How do you know?” “ But it
Kayla's POVI sighed and exhaled, trying to focus on what our mission was. When he was done assigning the first batch to a rogue, he told us our paths and immediately started the timer while we all swung to action. It was hard keeping up with Aidan and Hector as they ran but they would occasionally slow down so I could catch up to them. “ Stop!” Aidan said. Hector and I stopped and he took in a deep breath“ we’re wasting our time. I can’t think straight because all I smell right now is her,” Aidan said pointing at me. “ Kayla, just save us the trouble and choose one of us. It’s not that hard is it?” Aidan asked. I looked at Hector but he said nothing, he just looked away from me and faced a different direction. “ Say something, Kayla.” He said, coming closer to me. “ it was even worse when I woke up and you weren’t home. I got so mad at my parents this morning, they shouldn’t separate us.. “ he said before his eyes trailed off to my lips.“ This is not the time Aidan,” Hector poin
Kayla's POVI came out of the woods with Aidan and Hector behind me. Aidan told Hector to just show us where the hidden item was but Hector said that it would be suspicious if we come out with the item because he and the other rogues hid it so well that no one would find it. To keep things neutral, we came out empty-handed. Hector escorted the next batch of wolves into the woods and Aidan hung with Jason and the rest of his friends. We all acted as if we didn’t just spend almost fifteen minutes in intimate sexy acts. “ Are you okay?” Becka asked when I returned. She must’ve seen how much I was holding my breath trying to keep myself from latching onto Hector’s arm as he went with two girls inside the woods. Maybe I wouldn’t have been so jealous about it if it was another girl but the fact that it was Daphne and Gale put me in a bad mood. When we were done with training, Tyrone was disappointed that none of us during the time given, was able to find the hidden items. He eventually t
Kayla's POV “ Hector?” I called softly. He turned around, his silver eyes sparkly and a little startled. “ What- what are you doing here?” “ This is my place, you’re the one I should be asking that question,” I said, folding my hand and suddenly getting sulky. “ You own the woods?” he asked, sounding arrogant and irritating to me. “ No, I just mean that I’m the only one who comes here because of the…wolfsbane…” I said, noticing that I was significantly farther away from where I was before. “ There are no wolfsbane here” “ There are over there, that’s where the river is, but no one can go there except me.” “ They must really hate you for that huh?” “ Yeah,” I said. We stared at each other for a while. I was appreciating his…everything. He was what every girl describe as her dream man. Today his black, long, hair was even more ruffled and curly than before – a trait that would make any man look adorable didn’t change a thing about his sexiness. With his hands in his pocke
Kayla's POV“ Your what?” Hector asked, starting at me critically.“ My father, Hector, I’m telling the truth.” “ Who is he?”“ What do you even mean by that? You already know my father is a Rogue!”“ Sure but which Rogue? What’s his name?”“ Baynes,” I said regrettably, knowing how much evil I had heard he was responsible for. Maybe he even punished Hector’s parents too, just like Alpha Kent said. I summoned the courage to look at Hector and I find him looking at me with adorations instead of the fear or hate I had expected. Those two expressions were the most common looks I got whenever people mentioned that my father was a Rogue.“ I knew it…no wonder you’re so special.” He said with a smile so bright that I too started to smile unconsciously. “ I thought you would hate me.” “ What? I could never. Baynes is a legend amongst us. It is he that every one of us strives to be like. He was a hero but a lot of people misunderstood him” he said as his smile started to slowly fade away.
Kayla's POVAfter my time in the woods with Hector, I went back to Becka’s place. Both she and her mother were worried about me since it was already getting dark when I got there. I didn’t tell them that I was with Hector, I simply told them that I was thinking hard about who I would choose. The next day Becka was still a little bit withdrawn from me and I didn’t know why. Eventually on our way to school she said, “ I feel like you’re changing.” “ No, I’m still me. I was just upset yesterday that’s all.” I tried to convince her. I’m not sure if it worked but she seemed to think about me refusing to go home with her too seriously. When I entered the hallway with Becka, people weren’t giving me the stares anymore. That was even more suspicious, not that I liked their stares or I wanted to be stared at but they’ve never not stared at me before unless something more interesting than watching a girl one hates has happened. As I approached my locker, I saw that some people were behind A
Kayla's POVI panicked, wondering how I would ever snap out of this "Lycan kill mode" that I have found myself in. Suddenly I noticed that I was feeling less enraged, less murderous, and less frustrated as my lips locked with another, causing me instant satisfaction and happiness, making me forget what I was just about to April and filling me with a desire that was quenched with that sensual touch and our lips exploring each other to the max.When I was certain that I was fine, no longer murderous or bitter, I broke the kiss and looked at the one who kissed me. I didn’t expect it but I also kind of expected it.“ Thank you,” I said breathlessly as I rest my body against his while he wrapped his arms around me and stroked my hair, sniffing it occasionally.“ I had to stop what happened before from happening again, I couldn’t let you deal with that guilt.” He said and I exhaled, loving the way his chest vibrated as he spoke in his deep baritone.“ How did you know?” “ I was busy with A
