Andrea's POVMybiological clock always woke me up at half-past five every morning, since I hadto get up to clean the house and prepare breakfast for Alpha Michael's family,Today, whenI got up from the mattress, my leg brushed against something soft and furry.I rubbed myeyes and saw a solid black wolf tail. I quickly remembered what happened lastnight and tried my best to hold back a shameful scream."You'reawake?"A low,hoarse voice floated into my ear, and I jerked around to meet thosegolden-brown, cloudy eyes.The giantwolf had also woken up, seemingly tired.He got upfrom the ground and walked over to me. He circled my back, then reached out torub my neck like it was the most natural thing. Then, he wrapped his bodyaround my waist and placed his head on my thigh."Goback to sleep..." he said blearily.I wasstunned speechless.I wanted topush him away and run, but he simply licked the back of my hand with his roughtongue and said, "Stop it.""..."Why did thiswolf
Instead of wearinga tie and suit like he did yesterday, Enzo wore a white shirt and had casuallyrolled up his sleeves to his elbow. The top two buttons of his shirt were alsounfastened, and even his hair was brought back behind his head casually.Hisappearance was obviously messy, but I thought he looked handsome.I forcedmyself to look away again, trying to ignore his presence as much as possible.I needed tohave the entire villa cleaned spotless by seven in the morning, and thenbreakfast ready by eight.I had toprepare two extra portions for breakfast today. One was for Beta Kyle from theCold Moon Pack, and one was for the man beside me.Others fromthe Cold Moon Pack were visiting, but only Alpha Enzo and his Beta lived here.I startedcleaning the stair's railing while Enzo leaned against it to watch me.I tried toignore his eyes on me, but it was tough.Why did hehave to stand there and stare at me? Didn't he have things to do? Was it fun orpleasing to watch me work?
I could feelthe Beta aura from him. He must be Enzo's Beta, Kyle Larsen."That'sa pity," Kyle said as he sighed. "Enzo was just talking about howmuch he was looking forward to eating it. Me too."I wasstunned, and I looked over at Melissa.Melissa'spretty eyebrows knitted together, but she smiled at me after a few seconds."Better make those blueberry pancakes then. Since Alpha Enzo wants them,of course, we'll make sure he gets them."Then, sheturned around, nodded at Kyle, then left the kitchen.Kyleinclined his head and greeted her. After Melissa left, he winked at me beforemouthing, "No need to thank me, alpha sent me here."I gave him agrateful smile, then let out a relieved sigh before going back to my work.Duringbreakfast, Enzo had changed into a casual outfit that was surprisingly similarto what Melissa was wearing. One could mistake them for being a couple'soutfit, even.I've neverbeen a sensitive person, but the man who gave me a night of accompany ismatching
The crushingpressure on the back of my foot was so painful that it traveled through mybody. Cold sweat crept out on the back of my neck.However, thepain I felt did not all come from that. Part of the pain came from my heart.The moreMelissa hurt me, the more my heart hurt.For 19years, I've treated her as my salvation. She was reason I still held hope tothis world, and now that reason was gone.Our 20 yearsof friendship was nothing compared to a man.I feltbetrayed.I glanced atMelissa. She hadn't bothered to disguise the malice or hatred in her eyes. Fora moment, I felt that she had deliberately created a false sense of friendshipbetween us. In fact, she had never once regarded me as a friend.I suddenlyremembered that a few days ago, when I was scrubbing the floor, Melissa hadtold Ellen to let me take her place in this marriage and that she didn't wantto marry that devil. That Enzo wasn't good enough for her anyway and that I wasjust their slave and it would be more
It wasn'tuntil I got into the car that I suddenly realize what’s going on and struggledto get out.I hadn'tforgotten Melissa's warning. She would definitely kill me!I sat upfrom the passenger seat and was about to open the door."Okay,stop it," Enzo stroked my hair.I turned toglare at him, then tried to open the door once more."Andrea."Enzo suddenly leaned over and pressed his body over mine.I held mybreath instantly. I didn't even dare to exhale.He looked atme, his eyes tracing over my eyebrows, skimming over my nose and mouth, andcontinued downward...It felt likehe was undressing me with his eyes!"Don'ttry to run away from them again," Enzo said in a low, hoarse voice. "OrI’ll mark you here."I didn'tdare to move anymore. He smiled lightly and buckled my seat belt for me, thengot up to drive the car.He wasgentle and sometimes even childish, but those things didn't change the factthat he's still an Alpha. More often than not, he was domineering andstraightfo
Melissa’svoice scared me out.They wereoverall my ‘masters.’ I had no right to make any decisions on myself when theyhad my life as a sinner who killed my mother.And Enzowon’t let me go.“Whomind-linked you, let me guess, Melissa? I can tell that you like me, then don’tbother thinking of what that bitch says.He groundedhis teeth before continuing, "You are with me now, not the asshole’sfamily. I’ll deal with them for you and now if you dare to turn your back onme, I’ll mark you here."The more hespoke, the more worked up he got, and he gradually ignored the distance betweenus.He got downon one knee and took my hand, his hot breath spraying on my cheek."I wantto mark you. I want to make you mine. I want you to bathe in my scene for therest of your life. I want you to think of me and long for me all thetime."He strokedmy face and said, "That's the treasure I want the most."I wasstunned.All thethings he wanted to do to me were exactly the same as what I wanted to
Kissingwas perhaps very addictive. All my troubles and fears were behind me when Icould feel nothing but the warmth of his lips pressed against mine.Ienjoyed the feeling of drowning in his gentle arms.Itfelt like a dream to me. There were no worries, no confusion, no one or matterthat would hurt me. There was only me and my mate, our ordinary yetextraordinary lives.ButI forgot that there would always be a time to wake up in dreams.Enzoreleased me. He looked at me through lowered lashes, a deep look in his gaze."Comewith me," he said as he cupped my face.Likewhen Adam was caught stealing the forbidden fruit, my sanity finally brokethrough the heavy barriers and returned to me under those enticing words.Icouldn't go with him. Melissa and her family would kill me before I could evenleave Blue River Pack.Ilooked at him silently."You'renot willing?" Enzo furrowed his brows as his gaze wandered to my face.Ishook my head.Hepaused for a moment with a sad expression
Melissa'sface was twisted and ugly.Ionce saw Melissa as a sunflower, which had the power to brighten up worldinstantly. But now the petals of this sunflower were falling off piece bypiece, never to be the same again."Goto hell!" Melissa screamed shrilly.Ifelt the suffocation creep up in the next moment, and the will to survive mademe change into my wolf.Themoment Andy appeared; Melissa released her hold on my neck.Andyretreated to the corner in a half-crouch. Her tail hung downwards, looking asthough she would leap at her at any moment.Melissalooked at me before she suddenly burst out in a maniacal laugh.Iwasn’t sure what she was doing, so I could only watch her closely just in caseshe made a move again.Ididn't want to hurt her unless it was necessary. Even though she had alwaystreated me like a toy, none of the care she showed me was fake in my eyes."Doyou know what I hate you the most?!" Melissa pointed at me as she yelled,"I hate the way you look! I'm the
