Chapter 6

We 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.


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.”


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.
