On my first day of school I woke up at 6am and got dressed into a red and black sports top, matching tights that showed off my whole stomach, socks and sand shoes. And I left the house and jogged around the town again.
It was really dead this time of morning. There was nothing open except the coffee shop. And I did see some warriors training on the training field. But I just passed them, even with the wolf whistling at me and I did a lap of the sleepy town before I got back to the house.
I had a shower and I blowdried my hair and straightened it and then I got dressed into a white layer top with thick lace straps over my arms, denim shorts and wedges. And then I headed downstairs and I got a cup of coffee straight away and mom walked into the room.
" You nervous?" She asked.
" A little. I know that I shouldn't be. I keep saying that their not our old pack. But it's hard." I say.
" I know it is. You had bad experiences at that pack. It wasn't fare on you. They picked on you because of me. And I hated them for that. That's why I wanted to get you the hell out of there." She says.
" I know. Aren't you going to be late?" I asked sitting at the table with my coffee and she looked at my watch.
" Crap. I am. I'll see you tonight." She says kissing my cheek and she left the house in a hurry with her hands full.
I still had a bit of time before I had to get to school so I did a little reading over my coffee until it was time to leave.
I finally left the house and I got in my car and I drove to the school and parked in the parking lot right next to the building.
I got out of the car and grabbed my bag and let out a deep breath. I was really nervous as I started approaching the building. I noticed almost everyone staring at me but I tried not to pay attention. It's only because I am new in the pack. I know that's why their staring. Because they don't know me.
I found my way to the office and the plumpish lady behind the desk looked up at me.
" Hi. I'm Ivy Inglewood." I told her.
" Of course dear. I have your schedule and you're locker number and combination right here." She said handing me the forms.
" Thank you very much. Where would I find my locker?" I asked.
" Go straight out these doors and take a left. It's straight up the hall there." She says.
" Thank you." I say turning around and I left the office.
I was walking down the hallway trying to find my locker when someone grabbed me from behind and I turned around in an instant after jumping out of my skin.
" Holy crap on a cracker. You two really are identical twins. I wouldn't have been able to tell which one was Beau if you had the same hair cuts." I say looking at them. And they both chuckled at that.
" I told you she says what she wants." Beau says. " This is my twin brother, Cole and his girlfriend Olivia."
" It's nice to meet you." I say.
" Yeah. You too. Beau hasn't shuit up about you since he met you." Cole says and Beau elbows him in the ribs. Olivia didn't say anything but she did snake her hands around Cole protectively like I was there to take him or something. It was weird.
" Have you already got your class schedule?" Beau asked.
" Yeah. I was just looking for my locker." I say. So Beau takes my schedule and looks at it before he starts laughing.
" Bad news sweetheart. Us two have every single class together." Beau says.
" Oh crap. Is it too late to bail?" I asked
." Hey, I take offense to that." Beau says.
" Yeah. You were meant to." I say before chuckling at his mock hurt expression.
" Come on meany. I'll help you find your locker." He says.
" Okay." I say. So we start walking down the hallway and I saw Beau's eye glaze over so I knew that he was mindlinking with someone.
" Oh. Cole wants to know how tall you are." Beau says.
" 6 foot 1. Why?" I asked.
" There are no girls at this school as tall as you." He says.
" So much for me blending in." I say. And I see him mindlink the answer back to Cole.
We found my locker and I unlocaded all of my books and I just grabbed the few that I would need for my first few classes. Then Beau led me to our first class which was History.
He walked in the classroom first but he motioned for me to follow him and he sat in the backrow and pulled the seat out for me right next to him.
Pretty soon a girl with long brown wavy hair start swinging her hips as she was walking over to us.
" Beau baby. You didn't call me all weekend." She says.
" Yeah. That's because we broke up three weeks ago, Emma." Beau says.
" But I thought we were going to give it another go." Emma says.
" Who the hell told you that? I said that we were over. And that was the last that I wanted to hear about it." Beau snapped at her. I could tears falling down her face then and she went running from the classroom and her friends ran after her.
Beau then looked over at me looking deep in thought.
" Did those tears look real?" He asked.
" They smelt like perfume." I say.
" That's what I thought. She made herself cry to make me feel bad." He says. And I raised my eyebrows at him with a smirk on my face. " Shut up." He says.
" Oh. What a little heart breaker you are. Oh my god." I teased him.
" Why am I friends with you?" He asked.
" Beats me? You started it." I said.
" And I'm starting to regret it." He says and I give him a wide grin.
" You haven't started to regret anything yet Beau." I smirked looking away while he gave me a wide scared eyed look.
The teacher soon came into the room and noticed that I was a new student but didn't make a big deal out of it. He just got started with the lesson. And Emma and her friends came back to class after it started and the teacher didn't say anything to them. He just glared at Emma for some reason.
" He knows that she's a drama queen and needs to make an entrance all the time." Beau whispered.
" Gotcha." I whispered back.
The teacher was teaching werewolf history today and wanted us to write a paper on the first four original werewolf bloodlines. It was due at the end of the week and it needed to be 5000 words.
Every groaned at that and I tried not to laugh because I've already done that assignment at my last pack. And I had it at home. So that was easy enough for me. I had done the work and I was going to put that to good use at this school too. Without doing the work this week.
Our next class was algebra which I hated and I sat down the back with Beau again and Cole walked in and sat right in front of Beau and turned around and started talking with us as well.
" So, you finally loose your worst half?" Beau asked.
" Would you please stop talking about my girlfriend like that?" Cole asked.
" Why? She's a bitch and I can't stand her." Beau says.
" But she's still his girlfriend. And he likes her." I say.
" Thank you Ivy. I thought you said that Ivy was a bitch." Cole says. And I looked at him with shock before hitting his chest.
" I meant it in a good way." Beau pleaded.
" Prick." I say. And Cole started laughing.
" Shut up ass hole. Or I'll tell Ivy and your girlfriend what you were mindlinking me this morning." Beau threatened and Cole stopped laughing instantly.
" Oh. That's gonna be fun trying to find out." I say.
" Nope. Not gonna happen." Cole says facing the front of the room. And I look at Beau suspiciously.
" I can't tell you now. He stopped laughing." Beau says.
" I'll get it out of ya." I say.
At lunch time I went to go and put my books back in my locker and I felt someone walk up behind me so I turned around and Emma was standing there with her friends behind her.
" Oh shit." I muttered to myself.
" Yeah. You better be scared." She growls at me.
" I didn't do a damn thing so I have no reason to be scared." I say.
" You stole me boyfriend." She says.
" From what I hear, you're not together. And I only met him two days ago. And we're not dating. We're friends. So, I didn't steal anything." I say. She then punched me in the face, which I wasn't expecting.
" You know exactly what you did." She yelled. I looked back at her and wiped the blood away from my lip and I grabbed her by the hair and pulled her head down and kneed her in the face and she fell back on the floor.
I stood there waiting for her or her friends to make a move. But I never hit anyone while their on the ground. So I waited for her to get up. Which she did.
She charged at me but I dodged out of the way and we were creating a crowd around us and as Emma ran past me after I dodged her, I put my foot out and tripped her and she headbutted the lockers and put a dint in one of them.
She turned around and grabbed my hair and punched me in the stomach and I managed to pull back enough to kick her in the stomach and she fell back with a chunk of my hair. But before she could charge at me again someone grabbed her from behind and threw her against the brick wall.
I looked up and Beau was face to face with her and she was puffing. So she started crying immediately.
" She attacked me. She just attacked me out of nowhere." Emma cried.
" Really? Because that's not what those people told me when they came to get me. They said that you attacked her because she apparently broke us up. You are the reason we broke up, no one else. And Ivy and I aren't dating. We're friends and you are going to stay the fuck away from her. Alpha's orders." Beau says.
" You're not the Alpha." Emma says.
" No. My brother is. And he says that she isn't to be hurt. Her mother is the new doctor in the pack. He doesn't want her mother packing up and leaving because of a hormal little bitch like you. Stay the fuck away from Ivy." Beau yelled in her face. And he turned to walk over to me while I was leaning back against the lockers.
" Is that true?" I asked.
" What?" He asked.
" You're only friends with me because your brother doesn't want to loose my mother?" I asked.
" I didn't mean it like that." He says.
" Sure you didn't. You're just like every other asshole in school." I say walking away.
I avoided Beau for the rest of the day. Even in training that afternoon that was mandatory. And instead I teamed up with a girl that I didn't even know. I hadn't met her or seen her all day. " Well, if we're going to be beating the crap out of each other today I should probably introduce myself. I'm Spencer." She says. " Ivy." I say. " Yeah. You've already gotten around. That shit at lunch time. Emma's an entitled bitch. She deserved what you gave her. Most people aren't game enough to fight back." She says. Well, I've had to fight back a lot in my life otherwise people would have been walking over me wherever I went in my old pack. " She pissed me off." I say. " Yeah. She does that very easily." Spencer says. And then the instructor got started and demonstrated a few different moves and we got straight into training. But I could feel Beau watching me almost the whole time even though I ignored him and had nothing to say to him. He tried to catch up with me after school but
IVY POV I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to give him a second chance. I've never wanted to give anyone a second chance before. Although, no one has ever begged for a second chance like Beau. Or ever at all. So, I guess I was going to find out if this was a good thing or if it was going to come back and bite me in the ass. I walked back into the house and up to my bedroom and I heard my mother on the phone in her bedroom. She was talking to someone but even with my advanced werewolf hearing, I couldn't hear the person on the other end of the phone through the door. It didn't sound like work. It sounded like a deep and meaningful conversation. I just hope that she wasn't talking to the last human boyfriend that she had. That guy was a real drunken douche and I couldn't stand him. But for some reason she always forgave him whenever he messed up. And he messed up a lot. He cheated on her all the time. He got drunk and beat down our door once and attacked mom with a kni
IVY POV That day at school went by pretty smoothly. And in the afternoon I was paired up with Spencer again during training. But Beau and Cole were always paired up together. I ignored them yesterday but I paid a little bit of attention today and they were actually pretty comical to watch. They took every cheap shot in the book and acted like true siblings. Beau ended up getting the last blow when he punched Cole in the crotch and Cole fell to the ground holding himself like they were going to fall off or something. And he turned to me with a huge smile on his face. When we finished training we headed to the locker room and my room was right next to Spencer's and she says that it looks like Beau and I are back on track. " What are you talking about?" I asked. " Everyone thought that you and him were over before you began." She says. " We're not together. We're friends." I say confused. " Oh. The way you two act, you really look like you're dating. If not, you're at least
BEAU POV " What the hell are you talking about?" I asked staring Asher in the eye. " That's why I wanted you to keep her safe. Because I don't want her to know who I am yet. I don't give a shit that her mother is a doctor. I needed her here. Not her mother." Asher explained. " Why didn't you tell me that?" I asked. " Because I didn't want anyone to know. And then you started spending too much time together and it was too late. I didn't know how I was going to seperate you two." Asher says. " If I knew that she was your mate then I definitely wouldn't have kissed her. And I promise, that's as far as it went. How did you even find out that she was your mate?" I asked. " I went to her pack about two years ago. I saw her. She didn't see me, she never felt the pull. She didn't even look at me. But I saw her. That's why I waited to get her here." Asher says. " You need to let her see you. You need to meet her. She's almost 18. She will start to feel the pull towards you." I tell
IVY POV Beau said that we were going to get together to hang out or watever but I haven't heard from him. So I tried to call him several times and sent a few texts. When I didn't hear back I started doubting myself. I started thinking that maybe he was having doubts about last night. It really wouldn't surprise me. It's not like I actually believed that someone like him would be interested in me. No one has ever been interested in me like that before. Or interested in me, period. When I finished double guessing myself I decided to go to his house and confront him about it. If he wanted to forget about the kiss then that was fine. But I had a right to know why he was shutting me out. I didn't deserve that. And I knew that I didn't deserve that. I don't have much self esteem but I know that this kind of shit is not on. When I got to his house and rang the doorbell I didn't know what I was expecting, but when that man opened the door and he smelled of fresh rain I had to pull myself
On Monday morning I woke up at 5am and I got changed and I went for a one and half hour jog around the town and then back to the house again. I went upstairs to my room and I had a shower and I got dressed into grey short sleeved baggy top that looked three sizes too big on me, which it was meant to, that said 'East Hampton New York' on the front of it and white shorts and white slip on shoes. The sleeves of the shirt came to almost my elbow but that was the style. It was meant to look really baggy. I put everything into my bag and I headed down to the kitchen and I grabbed a cup of coffee before my mom walked into the room. " A lot of the patients at the hospital have been asking for you. Do you think you could stop by this afternoon?" She asked. " I didn't do anything special. I just did what any normal person would do. I made sure that they didn't die." I say. " I know. But they are still grateful for what you did. They wouldn't expect that from a teenage girl." She says. "
I didn't know what to make of Alpha Jackson being here. He couldn't be here. Not for us. He hates us. Why would he want us to go back to his pack. It made no sense to me. He ordered his entire pack to shun us, which I didn't even know. Alpha Asher said that. I thought they just hated us. But I guess it was more his doing then anything else. You're not allowed to go against the Alpha otherwise there are serious consequences. And then a thought suddenly hit me. " My mother." I said to Alpha Asher. " I'll head over to the hospital right now and get her to do the same thing. So that you two are now both apart of our pack." He says and I shake my head. Asher left the office and the principle was sitting behind his desk a little gobsmacked so I just headed to my class even though I was late. But the teacher knew that I had been called to the office and I sat down next to Spencer. " What happened?" She whispered. " It's a long story. Don't worry about it." I say back not wanting an
I stayed at the hospital until the night shift of nurses arrived and then I headed home and I needed to take another shower and I made a coffee and sat outside with a smoke. All I could think about was my mother. Jackson has her. I know that he does. But I have no idea where he would have taken her. He would make it really hard to find her. He wouldn't want me to figure it out. 'Ivy. You there?' Alpha Asher asked through the link. 'Yeah. Have you found her?' I asked. 'No. But it looks like she made a run for it from the car. We're following her scent and there are little bits of torn clothing on trees as we pass them.' He says. ' She's a fighter. She would have fought with everything.' I say. ' Do you think it's a coincidence that the Rogues attacked at the same time?' He asked. ' No. You don't know what he's capable of. And what lengths he'll go to to get what he wants.' I insist. ' Why would he want your mother?' He asked confused. ' I don't know. I have a feeling that
