Chapter 6We ended up washing the plates together. I could sense that it pleased him to have me helping him. We didn't talk, but the silence doesn't make us uncomfortable, either. Our arms would brush against each other and neither one of us find it unnoticed. But we kept silent until we finished.“Come, I'll show you to our room.” He wrapped his arm around my waist.I rose a brow. “Excuse me? Are we going to share a room?”He scratched his nape. “Yeah, is that a problem?”I looked up at him flatly. “Are you freaking serious? Of course, it is a problem! You're a man and I'm a woman. It is inappropriate to share a room.”His brows furrowed. “But we're mates. We're going to share room in the near future, anyway.”I gritted my teeth. “Then, wait for that future. For now, I want to have a room for myself. Alone. And if you're going to insist then I'll talk to your mother about it.”He visibly paled.I smirked.I'm an observant person. Whilst having lunch with them, I noticed that the three of them are mommy's girl and boys. It was too obvious. The love and respect I've seen on their eyes as they look at their mother are noticeable that even blind people could see and feel it.He sighed in defeat and nodded his head, pouting. “Fine.”My smile widened. “Great. Now, lead the way.”I felt him planting a kiss on my temple as he gently squeezed my small waist. I forced myself not to react at his gesture.We went upstairs towards the third floor. “Your room is just right across mine,” he said, pointing the only two room that occupied the whole third floor of the mansion. “I already have your room cleaned but it's void of any decorations yet. I'll let you decide for that. There's a queen size bed and walk-in closet. Ingrid will get everything you wish to have,” he said as he opened the chamber that is going to be my room while I stay here.My jaw dropped when I got to see what's inside. A huge room greeted my eyes with seemingly soft, silky queen-size bed in the middle of it. The room has a marbled floor, the high ceiling has a splendidly expensive chandelier, the floor-to-ceiling window has huge crimson curtain on the side of it, preventing the sun to infiltrate the room.Alpha Reui guided me inside. “My apologies if it's too plain to your liking. But well, we have all the time in the world to go shopping. You can order online if you wish,” he said. “Anyway, this room right there is your bathroom. The other door is the walk-in closet. Come, I'll show you.”We entered the door that leads us to a very huge and expensive-looking bathroom. My jaw went slacked at the overwhelming feeling creeping to my bones as I took into my surroundings.The bathroom was so... big and... exquisite.“There's no toiletries yet,” he chuckled shyly. “Actually, this room was never been occupied since, I think, 7 years ago. This was my mom's old room before she moved out to the second floor with my twin siblings. This whole floor is for alpha and his family.”I nodded my head, unable to utter a word. I travelled my gaze around and noticed another glass wall and behind it was a jacuzzi.I pursed my lips tight and looked away from it.“Your walk-in closet is here,” he informed and opened another door, and I think I would collapse any moment from how overwhelmed I am.It almost seemed to be the same size to a boutique in a mall! God!“Are you okay?” he worriedly asked. I tightly smiled and nodded my dizzy head.“Y-Yeah.” I cleared my throat. “Uhm, can we go back to the room now?”“Yes, sure. By the way, do you want to have a tour today or we'll do it tomorrow?”“My feet hurts. Doing it some other day is a good idea.”We headed back to the room and I sat down on the soft mattress of the bed. He sat next to me quietly.We fell into a deafening silence. I don't know what to say and neither was him. The atmosphere in the room was so awkward that I had to clear my throat up to break the silence.“Alpha Reui, uhm, I have a question,” I started.“Drop the formalities, Katia. You are my mate. I don't want you calling me alpha because it sounds like I'm superior to you.”My brows furrowed. “But you really are superior to me,” I uttered.He shook his head and held my hand, intertwining our fingers together. “I am yours as you are mine. I will not treat you inferior to me just because you're a woman or whatnot. You are my luna.” His whole expression was painted with utter seriousness.My heart skipped a beat but I ignored it. “Whatever. I will call you whatever I want. Anyway, back to my question. When am I going to go to Ythuel University?”By mentioning the university, the emotion on his face vanished as if it was never there at all.I blinked my eyes.“Reui?”He clenched his jaw. “You don't have to attend it if you want to,” he said.I stifled the urge to snort.‘And if I didn't attend the university, you'll knock me up? No way. I'm way too young to be a mother,’ I said in the back of my mind, biting my tongue to prevent those words from slipping out.I had to remind myself that I am on his territory. Therefore, I must not act as if I'd own this place and disrespect everyone as I want.“It's mandatory, said by Fernando.”“And you're my mate, they can't do anything if you wish not to attend it.”“But I want to.”“Why?”I glared at him.He knew why. He knew why I would rather choose to attend school. Either I will be killed or he'll get me pregnant. Neither those two options aren't the best idea!“Pssh. How about my studies in my old school?” I asked as I remembered my studies. I have a class tomorrow morning!“Hector will process all your papers today. Don't worry.”I sighed in relief. “I want to finish my studies. I want to go to school and finish what I'd started. I hope you will understand my decision.”It took him a minute or two to nod his head. “Yeah, I understand.”We stared into each other's eyes, sharing a conversation through our gaze. They said that werewolves could communicate through mindlink, but I haven't experienced that before. I don't know how they do it. If I'd go to school for werewolves, I think I would able to learn it.I'm curious. I'm curious how his voice feels like in my head. Is it as baritone as he speak through his mouth? Is it as appealing as he talk to me? Is his voice as hot whenever he chuckle?“Katia...” he whispered huskily. I shivered. His gaze landed on my lips and he gulp. Suddenly, the atmosphere of the room become heated. My pulse began beating fast. I don't know whether it's because of nervousness... or anticipation.My eyes landed on his red thin lips. It looks soft and inviting. I wonder how does it taste like pressed against my lips. Is it as soft as I imagined it would be? There's only one way to find out. The last time we kissed, I could barely remember its feeling due to extreme worry I felt.I raised my gaze up and looked into his eyes. His expression darkened and a look of lust and hunger flashed through his silver eyes. Both of our breathing became labored as we shared a look through our eyes.“R-Reui,” I stuttered as he slowly leaned down his face to mine.“I'll kiss you...” he said under his breath, brushing his lips against mine. My lips parted and a gasp escape my mouth when he bit the bottom of my lips before swiping his tongue over it.I closed my eyes, chest heaving in anticipation. I have never been desperate my whole life. I want him. I want him to kiss me. Passionately.Suddenly, there was a knock on the door that startled the both of us. My eyes widened and I immediately pulled myself away from him.He swore under his breath. His jaw clenched and his expression has darkened.Not in lust but in irritation.He ran his fingers through his hair and stood up, gritting his teeth. A blush appeared on my cheeks. I looked away and cleared my throat.I felt him staring at me for a brief seconds before he let out a sigh and walked towards the door and opened it.A beautiful woman appeared behind the doors.“Alpha Reui! I've thought they were only kidding around when they told me you're back! I'm happy to see you!” I heard a woman's voice. My eyes snapped to their direction and caught that the woman was now clinging herself to my mate like a freaking tarsier and had her lips pressed on the side of his lips!My eyes narrowed into slits and I could feel my claws growing sharp. I clenched my jaw as jealousy drown me.“Catherine,” Reui said lowly in a scolding tone. He held her shoulders and pushed her gently.The woman pouted her lips and batted her eyelashes. “It took you a month to get home. I've missed you,” she said and looked at him longingly. She caressed his chest and bit the side of her lower lip flirtingly.“Catherine, stop—” she cut him off“I know you've missed me, too.”My brows furrowed even further, and if looks could kill, she would've been dead now. Bitch!He's mine! He's my mate! She should know her freaking place!A sly idea suddenly crossed my mind...I stood up.With sweet smile plastered on my face, I stood up and appeared myself to them.“Babe, who's she?” I sweetly asked and walked towards them slowly with a smile plastered on my face. Their eyes darted to me. I saw Reui's eyes widened whilst the woman named Catherine just narrowed her eyes.“Who are you?” she spatted, venom was laced upon her voice.I looked at her innocently. “Same question; who are you? My mate haven't mentioned you to me,” said by me as I wrapped my arm around Reui's waist and leaned my head against his shoulder.He took a sharp breath as his arms instinctively encircled around my body.I saw shock flashed through the woman's eyes before it narrowed once again. She glared up at me.She held her chin up with the same fake sweet smile on her face. “I am Catherine, daughter of the Beta of this pack—”I dismissively waved my hands in the air.“Doesn't matter. Anyway, if you'll excuse us, we are doing something before you interrupt us. Leave this floor and don't disturb us again. Am I understood?”Before she could say something to retort, I closed the door in front of her face with an innocent, sweet smile on my face, mocking her.
Chapter 7As soon as the girl was out of our sights, I let go of him and crossed my arms around my chest. I arched a brow while my jaw clenched.“Who was that girl?” He looked lost. His cheeks was still painted with pink and her ears are burning red. “W-Who?”I gritted my teeth. “Is she your girlfriend? If yes, then f*ck you. I shouldn't have really went here! I was peacefully living my life in the city and you've dragged me here, only to know that you are committed to someone before me?!”His brows furrowed. “Katia, I don't understand you—”“Oh, shut up! You know what I mean! That wench is your freaking girlfriend!”“Hey, no. You got a wrong idea—”“I believe this is my room, so therefore, I have the authority to kick you out, too. Go away!” I opened the door and pushed him out. “If you want to be with me, then you have to clear things up with your....” I wanted to say ‘slut’, but then I remembered that Catherine was the daughter of the former beta of this pack. I immediately come u
Chapter 8Things became awkward for the next few days of my stay in this pack house. After Reui swore to the Forest of Life, I finally realized he was saying the truth and all that I said to him were nothing but only an accusation. I was embarrassed. It feels like someone just punched me in the gut at the realization. Because of that, it only gave me more reasons not to go out of the room. Some maids would just bring my meals because I wasn't going down. The twins also visited me and I've became close to them somehow. They are sweet and a little bit psycho like their big brother but I found myself liking their company. It keeps me from losing my sanity.I don't know when are we going to depart towards the Ythuel University. I can't wait to leave because the awkward in this house was becoming more and more thicker. I can't freaking face Reui without blushing furiously out of embarrassment. Although he reassured me that it was all okay and he wasn't going to tease me with it, but still!
Chapter 9It's been been 2 days since Reui went to the neighbor pack to discuss things with his co-alpha. Just what he had suggested, I interacted with some members of his pack. Now that he was gone, I no longer feel awkward. Mommy Cam and Ingrid toured me around the pack house during the first day since Reui departed. Ingrid was just the same age as me and she's gonna be my aid while I stay here and she's also gonna come with me in the university since she's 18. I've learned that the class will start 3 weeks from now, which meant the school administration along with the werewolf authorities were still searching for every werewolves whose age are of 18 to 19.“Why do they need to forced teens to attend it? We're just having a peaceful lives out of any packs!” I whined as I slumped down on the couch with a junk food on my chest.“Well, it is already a law few centuries ago,” Ingrid tried to reason out but I just couldn't wrap my head around this stupid law they made. “You know what? T
Chapter 10 “Ugh!” I groaned loudly and massaged my head as it throbbed. I felt my stomach churning as I suddenly had an urge to throw up. Without even opening my eyes, I rushed up towards the bathroom and puked my stomach's out on the sink. Damn it! That's why I never drink before. The first time I got drunk during highschool ball, it was the most horrible experience ever. I threw up everywhere and my schoolmates were laughing at my stupid drunken state. Not only that but I smelt horribly and the headache afterwards nearly killed me. I would never get drunk again! “Ma'am, I have prepared a pain reliever for you,” a servant came with a pill. I immediately took it from her and swallowed the small tablet. “Gosh! My throat hurts!” I whined. “Anyway, can you tell me where Ingrid is? She was with me last night.” “Ingrid is in her home, ma'am. Her father took her home last night.” I nodded my head and said my thanks before I dismissed her. I headed straight to the shower and strip dow
Chapter 11My heart dropped to the pit of my stomach as his words kept on replaying in my head. My heart went numb as the pain in my chest hasn't faltered since that time. It was already 7 days ago but the pain I felt didn't fade away. He had already apologized but I couldn't bring myself to accept his apology that instant. I am not mad at him, alright? I just... I don't precisely know what to feel.I know I'm at fault, too, for not following what he told me to do. I didn't listened. I've even went beyond it. So I can't really blame him if he reacted that way.But... his action made me agitated. He was exaggerating things. He doesn't want me to look at boys, let alone smile at them. He was damn possessive and it's kinda suffocating. Right now, I'm on the clearing with Ingrid beside me. Half naked men and sweated women were fighting hand to hand combats. Some were sword fighting. We were sitting on a log as we talked animatedly and laughed to our own silly jokes. But that quickly end
Chapter 12“I am not planning to reject you, okay?” I said.“You don't?” he asked adorably with his eyes blinking.I shook my head. “No. Where did you got that ridiculous idea?”He looked away as his lips protruded.“Reui, look at me.” He did what was told. Our eyes locked. I heave a deep sigh. “Okay, I will give you a chance to change. I'm not saying I want you to totally change yourself. I like the way you are, just reduce being so possessive. It's not healthy and it's creeping me out to be quite frankly.”He nodded his head. “Okay then, starting from today onwards, I will try my hardest not to suffocate you. As long those men has no hidden agenda or feelings towards you, I would behave.” He smiled gratefully and held my hand. “Thank you, baby. Thanks for giving me a chance, and thanks for understanding my situation. Rest assured, I won't act that way ever again. I apologize to all the foul, offensive words I said to you whenever I lost my control. I promise not to do it again.”I s
Chapter 13“Clean the mess up.” Reui's voice came out cold as he spoke towards his men who came right after Reui had disposed all the rogues. The sun has finally set and it was starting to get dark.“Yes, alpha,” said by his men.He hugged my waist and pulled me close to him. I snuggled my face to his chest to prevent myself from seeing the horrible state of the four rogues who wished the harm us. When I saw the bloodied scene, I freaked out. I didn't know I'm scared to blood until today. Gosh, I experienced a lot of first times.Like, when I said to myself I liked him. Like how I climbed up to tree, like how I discovered I actually am scared of heights and blood. I didn't know any of it until now. I don't know whether to be glad or to be scared.“Let's go,” Reui softly said, only for me, as he gently rubbed my back. I shook my head, eyes closed tightly. I'm scared to open my eyes. “You don't want to?” he asked.I shook my head.“Hmm, how about I pick you up? Is that okay with my baby
Chapter 14 I woke up lying next to him. A smile graced upon my face as I saw his beautiful face looking so adorable. His lips were slightly open as he silently snore. His lashes was too visible to see because his eyes were closed. His red lips also looks so tempting to get a taste. I shook my head and giggled softly. I got up and headed towards the shower. I took my time cleaning myself before I went downstairs. I found mommy Cam cooking. I offered a help and she gladly accepted my offer. Both of us were chatting as we enjoy our bonding time together. I woke up around 5, and went downstairs around 6. After preparing the breakfast, I called Reui and the twins from their respective rooms. It's around 7 am now. “Wow, you cooked these?” he mused, looking at me happily. I sheepishly smiled. “No. I only help mommy Cam to prepare this. She cook these delicious food, not me.” “Ah, don't flatter me so much, dear. You help me with the cooking, so the credits shall go upon you, too. You're
