THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE. CHAPTER THREE. Caliana. Age nine. "Cali, Cali," Annabella says, running away with a wide smile. We played tag in the backyard because Anna didn't want to play barbies. I like barbies. I chased Anna, but she was fast, and when I extended my hand to tag her, she ducked and ran the other way. "Anna. I'm tired of playing tag," She stops running and turns to face me. "Demi will be here soon. I have to get ready," Anna is three years older than me. "Why can't you stay here? Do you have to go?" "Cali, when your older, you will understand. Demi and I need to go to the mall to shop for new clothes; school starts soon," She says. "I want new clothes," Annabella sighs. "I like playing with you, Cali, but I also need to do things without you. You understand, right?" Anna asks. I nod even though I don't. Anna kneels in front of me and grabs my hand. "Things change. I won't always be around," "But, I don't want things to change," I tell her.
THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE.CHAPTER FOUR.Since Dominic told me that I belong to him and can't marry Tyson, he has been distant from me. Dominic and I were close as kids and into our early teens, but all that changed when he turned sixteen. The day he shifted for the first time, he promised to tell me how it felt to be a wolf, but when Dominic came home, he was different. He looked at me. He no longer talked to me unless he had to and ignored me completely. I thought things between us were changing, but I was wrong. Dominic didn't mean it when he said I belonged to him. He didn't want to see me with Tyson, Mortaga.This morning before school, I talked with Papa and explained to him that I would feel more comfortable if I could meet Tyson before our engagement party in two days.Papa said he invited Tyson for dinner tonight, so Anna and I are shopping for a new outfit after school. Anna says I can't meet him until I get the perfect dress, and as much as I hate shopping, Anna knows
THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE.CHAPTER FIVE."I'm sorry if I seemed like a jerk in there," Tyson apologized. "It's okay. I get it. I was the same way when my parents told me about the engagement,"Tyson nods. "You're beautiful, Caliana, but I can't marry you,"My brows furrow. "Why not?" I ask. Tyson sighs."I found my mate,"I look up into his brown caramel eyes. "You did?"He nods. "And your father is still making you do this?""I tried to tell him, but he refused to listen. So I don't know what to do, but I can't hurt Mya," Tyson tells me. I understand where Tyson is coming from. However, this only makes me wish I was a werewolf more so I could find my mate."I get it," I tell Tyson. "You do?"I nod. "You have a mate, too?" He asks. I shake my head."I don't have one. I'm not a werewolf,""You don't have to be," Tyson chuckles. I shake my head."I don't. But I am in love with someone else," I admitted. Tyson nods. "So, how can we get out of this?"I shrug my shoulders.
THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE. CHAPTER SIX. "Ban..." Bane's lips pressed against mine, making me forget what I was going to say. My first kiss. My first kiss wasn't supposed to be with Bane. Instead, I was saving it for Dominic. Dominic's been fooling around with Kimberly. Bane's lips were soft and moved against mine slowly, and my eyes drifted closed on their own accord. My lungs began to burn from the lack of oxygen, and I pulled away from him and sucked in a sharp breath. "I'm sorry," Bane whispered, creasing my cheek. "You shouldn't have done that. You're Anna's mate," I shook my head, feeling disgusted with myself for doing this to Anna. "Can we not talk about Anna?" "Why not?" Bane sighs. "I might as well tell you. Annabella is my mate. But so are you," "Go to her. Tell her this," Bane shakes his head. "I can't do that. I shouldn't have even told you that you're my mate," "Why did you tell me?" Bane's face started to blur, and everything started to spin.
THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE.CHAPTER SEVEN."Anna, please talk to me,"Annabella was heading down the hall but stopped.I'd been trying to talk to her all morning. She would glare at me, but she stopped just now. That's a good sign.She walked back to me. She raised her hand, slapped me across the face, and turned and left.Everyone was staring and whispering. Most of the whispering was about me trying to steal her mate, which I am not. Bane is my mate, too; she would know this if she listened to me.My cheek stung. Anna slapped me pretty well. My cheek is already bruising, but I can't be mad at her."Cali, have you seen Dominic?" Bane asked, running up to me at my locker. I glared at him. "I haven't. But thanks to you, Dominic and Annabella are at me for that kiss you stole from me,"Bane raised his brow."Dominic saw that?"I nod."Fuck," He mutters. "They think we kissed," I tell him."We did," He nods. I shook my head."No! You kissed my lips. I never once kissed you back,"B
THE ALPHA KING'S CURSED MATE. CHAPTER EIGHT. I'm unsure what happened at my engagement party or who was after me—the look on Mama's face was that she was terrified. I've been riding on Dominic's wolf for an hour, well, at least it feels like an hour. It's not like I can talk to him when he's in wolf form. Even though I'm part Vampire, I'm still human, and we cannot connect with werewolves through mind-link. I wish I could. I've been riding all this time with my eyes closed. Everything was passing by too quickly, making me feel sick. "Dominic," I yell when I open my eyes and see that we are about to run into a mountain of rocks. Dominic doesn't slow his pace. He increases it instead. I hold his fur tighter. "Dominic," I shout, kicking his sides with the heels of my feet. I wrapped my arms around Dominic's wolf's neck and held his fur tight as the mountains came close. Instead of us being splattered into bits, we went through it. Dominic still never slowed down. And whatever w
