Chapter 7 - Royals

The wolves that were standing with Alpha and Luna a few minutes ago are now walking toward us. I already knew that werewolves are naturally beautiful creatures, but believe me, these two weres who are coming toward us are the most beautiful weres I have seen till today. I don't know who they are, but I can feel the power radiating from their bodies, which means they must be rank holders in their packs. They came and stood in front of Layla and Matt.

The she-wolf standing in front of Matt is the same height as me and has shoulder-length auburn hair and green eyes. She checked out Matt openly and whistled, "didn't I tell you, Ellon, my mate, will be the most dashing male on this planet," she told the male who was staring at Layla without blinking.

Layla scoffed at her statement "have you not heard about mate bond and mate pull?" she told her while her eyes were glued to the man in front of her. He has a good height of 6'0 and has perfectly styled chestnut brown hair with blue eyes. Finally, on Layla's statement, that man smiled and shook his head... "and didn't I tell you, mia, that my mate would surely be the one with sarcasm" he told her, and on his statement, Layla blushed furiously... {now this is the way to meet your mate for the first time...}

That mia girl rolled her eyes and again focused on matt. "What's your name, handsome?" she asked him. Matt is still looking at her and is taking deep breaths... {probably inhaling her scent} ... I was standing between Layla and matt, so I nudged matt. Suddenly Mia growled at me, pushed me to the side, and came between Matt and me. I raised my hands in surrender. How can I forget that mates can be extremely possessive until they mark each other? Matt looked at me in panic as his mate glared daggers at me.

"Hold her stupid," Layla said to him, and his eyes got wide "o come on, she is your mate, for damn sake," she shouted at him in irritation. Matt slowly put his hand on hers, and the mate bond started its magical effect instantly. Mia turned towards him and hugged him tightly, and breathed his scent. I tried to stop myself from laughing, but as soon as Layla started laughing, I broke and joined her.

Matt's eyes were wide, his mouth was open, and his hands looked like they froze in mid-air, and if you look more closely, you can see that he stopped breathing in shock. When Mia left him, he finally got into some senses and took a deep breath. Finally, I stopped laughing, but Layla was still laughing, and her mate's eyes were still focused on her while I could see a slight smile on his face... {he was already smitten by her... well, I can't blame him, both my besties are awesome}

Matt rubbed the back of his neck awkwardly... "I am Matt, Matt walker," he said to Mia, and she gave him a breathtaking smile.

"Hi matt, I am Mia Williams," she told him, and he nodded, still a little red from her hug.

"Ellon wood," Layla's mate told her while extending his hand towards her. She put her hand in his without thinking twice.

"Layla black," she told him, and he kissed the back of her hand, which made her cheeks turn into a deep shade of red. I can see that he didn't want to leave her hand but decided against his will and left her hand. As soon as their little introduction session ended, someone cleared his throat, and we all looked at the source. Alpha Aiden is now standing in front of us.

"I am glad that you have found your mate, but we have to make an announcement," he told Mia and Ellon.

"Sure, alpha," Mia told him in confidence. She took matt's hand in hers and walked towards the front.

"I would like it if you would come with me," Ellon told Layla, but it's clearly written on his face that he is dying to hold her hand again. Layla looked at me and then at alpha. I knew she also wanted to go with her mate, but still, she was thinking about me. Alpha gave her a pointed look to not ask me to come in front...{he would never want me in front} ... She took a deep breath and was about to open her mouth when I interrupted her.

"Yes, she will come with you," I said on her behalf, and finally, this time, Ellon's gaze shifted from Layla, and he looked at me. A shocked expression crossed his face, but he concealed it perfectly in seconds. I would have pointed it out, but it is something that I am accustomed to now. Humans living with werewolves is not so normal. I smiled at him, and he nodded stiffly.

"You should come, beta Ellon"... {so he is a beta} ... alpha Aiden said, and Ellon extended his hand for Layla to hold. She looked at me in doubt, but when I gave her an encouraging look, she huffed and finally put her hand on his, and all three of them walked in front.

Alpha Aiden came in front and started speaking, "blue moon pack, the recent attack that we faced was not a simple rogue attack. Unfortunately, vampires were also working with them." Blue moon packs have exactly 357 werewolves, and if you include me, then 358 members, and all of them are present here, but still, the crowd is pin-drop silent. "50 rogues attacked us, but we don't know the exact number of vampires. We all know that vampire attacks are not common, so we reported this attack to the royal pack 'crescent moon' about this, and since we managed to kill one vampire, we have enough proof that they attacked us. Taking into account the threat of this situation, Alpha king sent his beta, Ellon Wood, and gamma Mia Williams to look into this matter. ".. {holy fuck, beta Layla Black and gamma Matt Walker. It sounds so cool}

"They are going to stay in our pack for a few days, so if any of you want to give any information you think can be helpful about this situation, you can talk to the beta and gamma of the crescent moon pack. As long as they're here, they'll be helping gamma Alexander and Leah in training the pack and teaching the skills to help us in any attack that consists of vampires." He said and gave us time to digest the piece of information and then continued... "I am also happy to announce that we have got the permission to host 'mate ball' this year in our pack, so I request everyone to postpone any plans that you have in the coming three months in which you have to go out of the pack for something or some work as we have a lot of preparations to do. If someone has emergency cases to deal with, I want them to come to take permission from me personally. Thank you for your time. Have a nice day" with it, alpha Aiden ended the pack meeting and gestured to everyone to return to their work. He went towards Ellon and mia, and they started talking with each other while Layla and matt stood there looking for me in the crowd. I looked around and found that most of the people had already gone, so I also turned towards the pack house when a voice stopped me.

"Aww, our weirdo lost her best friends" I already knew it was Stella... {despite her mean behavior, I never hated her, but after Ethan's rejection, I couldn't ignore the negative feeling that I was feeling toward her} ... I clenched my fists to stop myself from doing anything because no matter how much I control myself, this 'broken' mate bond is playing with my emotions. I closed my eyes and started counting backward to stop my anger. "Aww, crying will not change the truth, 'addy,'" she mocked, and her friends laughed. "Both Matt's and Layla's mates are higher rankings wolves than them, so they have to change their pack and shift with them, and finally, they would be able to get rid of you" I knew my eyes were closed, but her words were piercing my heart. I opened my eyes and looked at others who were now laughing while Stella smirked at me.

"You know Stella, I can give you a befitting reply," I told her in a matter-of-factly tone, and now everyone got silent... "and now, as I have already killed a vampire and werewolf, I don't think it will be very hard to kill or maybe seriously injure another" I stopped and looked at their expressions, and everyone is shocked... {I never stood up to them before today} ... "but you are the future luna of this pack, and as I am a member of this pack, I have forbidden myself from causing any harm to its members," I told her in a cold voice. I was expecting a reply from her when I heard a growl behind me, and again I already knew who the person was...{How in this hell could I recognize Ethan's growl? ...fuck matebond}... he came in front of me, standing beside Stella, and this sight again caused my blood to boil. I just wanted to rip that Stella into a million pieces.

Ethan looks angry, but as he is breathing hard, I already know he is trying to control himself. I heard a few footsteps hurriedly running towards us, so I looked backward, and Layla and matt stopped in front of me while their eyes fixed on the others.

"What did they do this time?" Layla asked me while glaring at them. Mia and Ellon also came toward us. While Mia is not looking very happy, Ellon is just observing everyone.

"No one did anything ..." I was trying to calm Layla when Stella felt it was the perfect time to open her shitty mouth.

"I thought that you would leave your rescue job when you got yourself a mate, Layla," she told her, and this proved that her skull was definitely empty... {who the hell in this world said this to she-wolf in front of her mate and not only a normal mate, but he is also a royal stupid} ... "I know your parents have never pointed this out, but I don't think a royal beta would want his mate to be a friend of a lowly human like her, will he?'' She told this and looked at Ellon while checking him out. Layla growled and grabbed Stella's throat; before she could do anything, Ellon came in front of her and pushed her face on the crook of his neck and rubbed her back, while Ethan removed Layla's hand from Stella's throat... {hence proved, Stella is seriously dumb...}

"Calm baby girl, I am only yours," Ellon whispered to Layla while she took deep breaths, and I could see his scent calmed her. He looked at me and asked, "Can we go somewhere else?" and I nodded. We walked towards the edge of the woods, and all this time, I felt Ethan's gaze on me...{if he really wanted that mate bond to vanish, then he should make proper distance from me and not come in front of me like that. It was not like I was going to hurt his girlfriend}

"You all can go to the lake," I told four of them.

"And why are you not coming?" Matt asked me, and Mia gave me a stink eye... {someone should really clarify to her that I have zero interest in Matt}

"I have some work to do," I told them, and Layla narrowed her eyes at me. "I have to meet gamma Alexander" matt gave me a pointed look, and I could see mia getting restless. I rolled my eyes, but I couldn't ignore it. I didn't want another ranked she-wolf breathing down my neck... "don't get me wrong, mia, we are friends and nothing else. He only cares for me because, as you can see, I am a human living with wolves, so very hazardous accidents can easily happen with me" I tried to make her understand.

"What do you mean by 'he cares? Are you saying that I don't care?" Layla said and crossed her arms, and this time Ellon gave me a stink eye. I rolled my eyes at these stupid, extremely possessive mates... {but it is still cute}

"For god's sake, guys, you found your mates not more than an hour ago, and still you are stuck on me," I told them pointedly "you have to forget about our threesome..." I teased, and both Mia and Ellon growled while Layla and matt tried to stop them while glaring at me... "plans," I completed my statement while laughing while both of them were trying to control their mates. {that's hilarious}

"What is that for bitch?" Matt and Layla both said in unison while trying to control their mates, making me laugh harder.

"It's fun to tease extra possessive mates," I reasoned with them while they glared at me.

"May the moon goddess give you the most possessive mate of this whole world" as soon these words escaped Layla's lips, her eyes widened, and matt looked at her in shock.

"Moon goddess loves me; that's why my mate rejected me on the spot, Layla," I said in the same playful manner to not make her feel guilty but inside, I knew that these words had a significant impact on my heart.

As soon as I said that, Mia and Ellon stopped and looked at me with open mouths. I laughed at their expressions, but everyone else was silent except me. "it's alright guys, just go and spend some time with each other," I told all four of them, but now all of them are looking doubtful "when I accepted the rejection, I accepted everything that comes with it." Layla and matt nodded, but mia and Ellon were not looking convinced. "I am more than what I look like, royals, don't think about me... go and have some fun with your mates," I told them and turned towards the pack house. I went to my room, but as soon as I opened the door, I came face to face with Ethan... {he has to have some solid reason to be back in my room now, or I am literally going to kick him out of my room}

"What are you doing in my room?" I asked him with a straight face. He came towards me and closed the door... {obviously, he can't let anyone hear our conversation, and no matter if every room in the pack house is soundproof or not, you have to close the door...}

"You are not supposed to tell anyone that I AM your mate," he snarled, and despite his anger, I could see a little softness in his eyes.

"And whom I said that you WERE my mate?" I told him while correcting him, and he growled.

"Don't try to be smart, Aadhya. I heard you telling those royal wolves," He said, taking a step towards me, and I stepped backward. He didn't seem to like it because his eyes were swirling between brown and black.

"I told them that MY MATE rejected me. I never took your name, did I?" I asked him pointedly.

"I don't believe you," he told me, making me smile.

"Then don't," I told him, and he looked at me in irritation, "I don't want anything from you, not even your belief, and I expect the same from you... I also have nothing to give you," I told him with a sad smile. "I can't deny that I don't want you because mate bond is not in my control, but I can confirm one thing," I told him with complete seriousness. "I will never allow myself to accept you as my mate" I can see from his expressions that my words hit him really, very hard. "And don't take tension about anyone knowing about me being your mate. I don't want my name to be attached with you. The more this mate bond forces me, the more I will be repulsive towards you" this is the final straw for him.

He growled loudly and pushed me onto the wall, his whole body pressed against mine. The familiar sparks ran through my body because of his touch, but they were not as effective as before. I don't know what got into me, but as fast as he pushed me on the wall with the same speed. I grabbed his right hand from my shoulder and, with a swift motion, twisted his hand on his back with full force. He screamed in pain, and I heard a crack of snapping of a bone. That sound is enough to make me come to my senses. When my slow brain understood what I had done, I left his hand with a gasp and took a few steps backward... {did I overpower an alpha wolf? Can't this day become a little less adventurous.}
