(Twenty-five days later)
Today was the day when Romeo, my husband, my chosen mate… brought home his fated one. After the initial training everyone started preparing for welcoming the higher pack officials’ return.
Nobody knew except me, what was about to come. They were about to get the surprise of their lives.
This time I did not repeat the mistake of applying make-up. I kept it simple with a powdered blue midi dress in a backless design. Tying my hair in a chignon, I gave myself a final once over in the mirror when someone knocked on the door.
“Yes?” I did not let my inner tension show on my face when the door opened and a tensed Emma peeked inside.
“They are here, Alessandra… And…” She left the sentence in the middle. I knew what was worrying her. Romeo was here with his mate. She wanted to keep me safe from the pain soon to be inflicted by him.
But never mind! It was my least concern. Right now I needed to play it smartly.
Taking a deep breath I gave her a shaky smile and held her hand.
“Let’s go!” When I came out all the pack members were standing there with grim expressions. I could see the shock on their faces.
This was just the initial shock because soon my husband’s mate will start shedding crocodile tears and I would easily become a villain after confronting my husband.
“Sandra!” Romeo gave me a tensed smile and came towards me to kiss my forehead. There was worry in his chocolate brown eyes, “Baby! We need to talk.”
“Talk? About what? You all need to get fresh first because whatever it is… can be discussed later.” I ran my gaze on all the pack members and then my eyes fell on that girl who was acting all scared trying to hide behind Russel, the Beta of my pack.
Romeo followed my gaze and tried to clear his throat, “I … I tried to mind link you but …” just then he frowned looking at my face, “Your eyes. They have turned silver.”
“She was sick, my Alpha.” I heard David’s voice behind me. “Dr. Sebastian has strictly instructed her not to let out her wolf and give it maximum rest. She got a high fever in your absence and remained unconscious for five days. It’s normal to change eye color in a prolonged period of fever.”
Romeo frowned and this time I could see the concern in his eyes. Genuine concern.
“I am so sorry, Sandra. I know you must be weak but I need to tell you this.” He turned towards the girl and chuckled nervously, “I … I found my … mate, Sandra. She is an Omega of the neighboring pack…” I realized he was observing my face.
“Alessandra!” I heard a familiar voice.
“Uncle Zayn!” I turned and headed towards my maternal uncle for a hug, “I hope you are well.”
“Ah. Yes, I am good. But…” He shot a nervous glance towards Romeo asking him quietly if he had told me.
“Let me tell you.” Said a familiar girlish voice who I started hating ever since she came into my life, “I am your husband’s, fated mate.” Tears started rolling on her cheeks, “He was confused about … how to tell you this.”
I turned towards Romeo who was now looking down, “Romeo. It’s ok.” I touched his arm lightly.
I heard the surprised gasps around me but I chose to ignore them. Romeo shot me a startled glance. I nodded my head, “It’s ok. This was bound to happen. Just do what you promised me to do. Reject her and we are good to go.”
There was confusion on his face. But I did not want to win this war by screaming and whining.
“That was pre-decided, Romeo. Right? She deserves to live a happy and contented life. Don’t do this to her.”
Looking into my eyes he nodded his head and turned to her, “I … I … Romeo Evans … Alpha of Silver Moon pack … reject you as…”
“No!” there was blood curdling sound in the air. The girl came running towards him and sat down at his feet, “Don’t reject me, Alpha. Don’t do this to me. I will never come between you two. I swear. Just give me a chance to prove myself.”
Romeo had frozen on the spot. She was crying uncontrollably.
I stopped myself from rolling my eyes.
Gosh! This girl had always been so dramatic. Ever since she walked into our lives she did nothing except being a drama queen.
Heaving a sigh, I went near her and helped her up gently, holding her shoulders.
“Easy! We at Silver Moon pack treat everyone equally. Be it our Alpha, Luna, or any Omega. You are respectable for us just like any pack member.”
I enjoyed the expressions on Romeo’s face. Even the girl seemed taken aback by my gesture. This was something unexpected for her.
Just keep watching, bit*ch. You should know, who you messed with.
“By the way,” I shifted her hair behind her shoulders, “What is your name?”
“Juliet.” She told me shyly. I never liked her name and always felt that she came up with the name after she met my husband. But right now I did not give a damn.
“Let’s meet at the dining hall after thirty minutes. Shall we?” I gave the best smile to my pack members and left.
Once inside my office, I leaned on the closed door and started taking deep breaths. I knew Romeo would be here by any minute.
Just then there was a brief knock on the door and then someone tried to open the door. I at once moved away and let him in.
“Sandra. Sweetheart!” He came inside and tried to hug me but I pushed him away. I could not take it anymore.
“Why didn’t you reject her?” I suppressed my scream. Oh, Goddess! How to tell him that she would kill his family one day.
He might love me but he would never understand if I would tell him that I was given a second chance.
“You promised. You gave me your word. You liar!”
“Sandra. Don’t do this.” He pleaded. “I wish I could tell you how painful it was when I was trying to reject her. Please try to understand. Moon Goddess chose her as my mate, for a reason.”
At this point, I wanted to slap him.
Patience, Alessandra. Patience. I tried to get hold of my emotions and wiped my tears.
“Fine. It’s time for lunch. We can discuss it later.”
“Later, Romeo! Later!” With that, I stormed out of my office. He was again doing the same things. Postponing the rejection using same lame excuses.
But this time I was not ready to give up. I could not let her succeed. The wicked woman killed my Amerigo. I needed to do something beforehand.
There was another drama expected during lunch and I wanted to be there to turn the tables.
Alessandra Benjamin: With squared shoulder, chin up, I went to sit across the big dining table in the living room. Romeo had still not reached there and everyone was waiting for him to join them for the meal. I casually looked around until my eyes fell on Emma. She nodded her head slightly without anyone noticing. I just blinked my eyes once to acknowledge. It was a signal that everything was well planned for now. Usually, Omegas used to serve us, and then they used to have their meals in peace after cleaning up. But recently I changed that. I made sure that they eat their meal before us and then they can serve us with a full tummy. Not only Omegas but other pack members liked the idea. They all were happy that their Luna was bringing equality among pack members. We all kept waiting for Romeo and Juliet to arrive for the lunch. What was taking them so long? Gosh! Were they humping each other! I wanted to laugh at this absurd notion. Just then the doors opened and Romeo entere
Alessandra Benjamin: We all were in the middle of the meeting when she entered the hall. She smiled when her eyes fell on my husband. I ignored her and kept listening to Beta Russel. We were about to host the annual ball. Each year, a pack was given the opportunity to do it. This year, it was our turn. In my previous life, I did not show any interest in it, as a result, it was held in the neighboring pack. It did not leave a good impression on Alpha king and he was not happy about it. But this year I wanted it at my packhouse. We needed to host it. In the future, if Juliet would do something against my pack, I needed all the neighboring packs and Alpha King to witness my pack’s strength. All of them along with Alpha King could come forward to stop her. They could try to knock some sense in my lovesick husband’s thick skull. Though I had never met Alpha King, he was known for keeping his word. “We need to prepare our guest floor for a comfortable stay for Alphas, Lunas, Betas,
Alessandra Benjamin: “Moo!” The moment Amerigo’s voice rang in my ear I sat up in my bed. The space beside me was still empty. A telltale sign that Romeo was with his Juliet. The pain in my chest intensified. The whole day used to pass easily in planning and thinking about my next move. But every night, he used to call me with love, and every time I wanted to quit everything and join him where ever he was. “Oh, Amerigo!” Tears started slipping on my cheeks. I got up from my bed and stood up near the window. My wolf Carla was not there otherwise I would have jumped from the window. Without thinking much I headed towards the door and went out. I needed to get out of my room. Maybe I should go to the kitchen and raid the fridge for any leftover pasta. When I reached near the kitchen, I heard some strange noises coming from it. The moment I reached the door I heard moans and whimpers. I could not stop the smile from spreading on my face. This was definitely David and Emma. Those l
Hello readers!I hope you will like my work. This novel is a sequel to “Alpha Ezequiel’s fated mate” but can be read as a standalone.I will try my best to be regular with updates but if you are an impatient soul like me then you can read my already completed books exclusively on Goodnovel.Alpha Ezequiel’s fated mate (19 chapters free)Oops I Married A CEO by mistake (5 chapters free)Now the main reason for this note is…Readers! English is not my first language. Usually blockbuster books are edited and proof read several times by several people. But here we usually write it overnight, proof read it once or twice and then publish it. Usually I do notice mistakes AFTER publishing them.The point is I am writing books because I am a hopelessly romantic person. But when I read rude comments, it does affect my creativity.Before typing your reviews please keep in mind that on the other side, there is a human reading them. Believe me I am open to positive criticism and keep working on my
Alessandra Benjamin:I must be in deep sleep on that chest when I heard whistles of patrol guards slicing through the air. Did they smell the stranger in my arms?Oh! The stranger! I shifted back to look at his face. He was still standing there. Waiting for me to wake up.How could a man do that? Like waiting for a sleeping woman to wake up. That too on his toes?Nah! I guess that only happened in movies.It was so dark that I could not see his face. Without my wolf, I had become half-blind according to werewolf standards.I turned to the whistle sounds muttering to the stranger under my breath, “I need to go. I cannot afford to be seen here with you.” With that, I tried to fix my nightgown that was giving a clear view of my cleavage. It was quite a see through garment.Just then the man behind me slipped his white button down shirt, around me. Wearing it hurriedly, I buttoned it and held it by its collars. When I came out of the lake, the petrol guards bowed their heads,“Luna. What
Alpha King, Noah Ezequiel James:The door opened with a bang, and Beta Lucas entered my office carrying a few envelopes.“Here!” He dumped them on the table, “Surprise. Surprise. A miracle happened. Silver Moon pack is hosting the Annual Ball this year.I frowned but did not turn away from the window. It opened in my back garden which possessed the serenity and calmness craved by my soul.“Alpha Noah?” Beta Lucas called me again. He was not only my friend but also my right hand. I, Noah Ezequiel James was not only the King of Kavoda Kingdom, a human kingdom but also the ruler of all the werewolf packs.I did not know when Lucas came near me and placed his hand on my shoulder.“Is everything alright, King Noah?” Beta Lucas had concern in his voice and I could not even manage to smile.“Yeah. I hope so.”“Hope so? I have never heard such uncertain answers from you, King Noah?” I stayed quiet and then turned around to take my seat.“This…” I gestured towards the envelopes lying on my wor
Alessandra Benjamin:Swords were clanking and I was attacking Dimitri at every chance I was getting. When I kicked his knee, he dropped his sword and fell on his back.My sword was pointed towards his neck now. I was panting and my face was soaked in my sweat.“Excellent, my Luna.” He complimented me with a chuckle. I offered him my hand to help him stand up.“So… What do you think so far?” I asked him like a child waiting to be praised by his teacher. He started walking beside me.“You are definitely improving, my Luna. I never knew you are a quick learner.” Coming from him, this was a compliment indeed.After my training, I was heading towards my room when I heard uncle Zayn behind me, “Hey, dear niece!”I turned and hugged him, “How are you, uncle?” He ruffled my hair and offered me his arm. “How was your training, today?”“Oh. Dimitri thinks it’s getting better day by day.” Uncle Zayn was my maternal uncle and took care of me after my parents’ death. After I became the
Alessandra Benjamin: “My, Luna. Seamstresses have arrived.” Emma announced after closing the door behind her. I could not decide if I should tell her about last night’s warning note. “Is something bothering you, Sandra?” She held my cold hands. There was an unsettling feeling in her eyes. She and David used to be my best friends. But that was too risky to trust anyone. “I am all fine. Let’s go and pick out our dresses for the annual ball. After all, we are going to be the hosts.” I smiled rolling my lower lip between my teeth. She nodded and pushed me towards the door. “Are all the Omega females also there?” I confirmed Emma because I needed witnesses for whatever I was about to do after a few moments. When we reached the sitting room solely for my guests. There were piles of different colored gowns everywhere. The head seamstress came to me and bowed her head. “My Luna. According to the old tradition, you will pick up your dress first.” Twirling my hair strand around my finger
