Avalyn's POVTime might not heal everything, but it did heal me physically.Another week went by, I was feeling better than I ever had.I made sure to stick to the diet Natalie had designed for me. I went to every doctor’s appointment and did the light exercise of walking regularly to make me stronger. I wasn’t one hundred percent there yet, but I was improving steadily everyday.I was surprised by how fast I recovered when I put my efforts in. Then again, I bore Alpha blood.Since there was no way for me to look back, I persuaded myself to feel better about the situation. By the time this was done and over with, I would be in a much better place. I would be healthier, and I would have freedom.It was an hour after I had my dinner. I looked out of the window and saw the evening sky casting shadows across the pack grounds. This was the only leisure time I was given every day outside of my busy treatment schedule.I took a book from the library to the small reading nook of my room. The
Avalyn‘s POV All of sudden, the body weight on me was lifted, and my wrists were released. Almost at the same time, a soft blanket was thrown over my body. I snapped my eyes open in disbelief. He stopped. Why? My gaze went to his face as he propped himself up on the bed. His expression seemed distant, and maybe a little concerned—I wasn‘t sure. Then I watched as he pulled back and pick up his clothes. I could see the broadness of his back, the curves and firmness of every muscle. There was nothing but power radiating off of him. He was the largest, yet finest man I had ever seen. As he buttoned his shirt, I realized what a coward I was. I had ruined it… No, I couldn‘t fail this task. I couldn‘t disappoint him. I had to do this! If I didn‘t, what would happen to my pack, my father… and me? Panic rose in me. I got up as quickly as I could and grabbed the bottom edge of his shirt before he got the chance to tuck it back in. I couldn‘t let him leave. I had to complete my task! “Please
Logan's POV After the conversation I had with Alpha Grey, I went to see Natalie the next day. She had made sure to put Avalyn on a strict diet and rest order to ensure she gained her strength back. A couple weeks had passed, and Avalyn had been improving steadily, both physically and mentally. Natalie convinced me that Avalyn needed to get out of the house. That way, she wouldn‘t feel like she was a prisoner within our walls – of course, she would always need to be accompanied. Usually, I watched Avalyn from a distance. My sister Rebecca had taken over being Avalyn's caretaker when it came to venturing outside of the main house. The two of them got along quite well. I knew that Rebecca's heart would break, though, when Alpha Grey had Avalyn killed. Avalyn was a kind spirit that you couldn‘t hate even if you tried. She did no wrong, and I didn‘t understand how her family treated her the way they did. “Logan!”Rebecca's voice filtered through the air, and I turned in the hallway
Avalyn's POV The graceful elegance of the white and gold piano reminded me of the one my mother used to have. The thought was both painful and pleasant at the same time. It had been so long since I touched any instruments. Until recently, I had forgotten that music used to be such an important and joyful part of my life. Thinking over the memory, I slid onto the golden stool and let my fingers brush over the keys. It only took me a few moments to get used to playing again, but once I did, I was totally immersed in the melody. It was like reuniting with a dear old friend with whom you could immediately reconnect emotionally, no matter how long it had been since you‘d seen each other. I may have been sold to a ruthless Alpha – but this was still my life.The people here were not all awful or hurtful toward me. In fact, many of them cared for me, although I didn‘t understand what I had done to deserve their kindess, especially Natalie and Rebecca. When I was free and left here, I woul
Grey's POVI raised my eyebrow. “Okay.” “The tests all came back fine,” Logan began. “She has managed to put back on some weight, and is doing much better than before physically…” He hesitated going any further, and his uncertainty caught my interest. He seemed to be searching for the right words, which was rare for him. “Based on her reaction to things… you know, due to her previous mental health concerns – I do have a suggestion if you‘d be open to it.” I was aggracated with how everyone kept saying she was messed up in the head or not ready. They made assumptions, and they didn‘t even know how she truly felt about anything. Not that I was worried about it, but it was interfering with my task. “Just spit it out already, for god‘s sake,” I said through gritted teeth as I stared at Logan . “I would simply suggest that you take a slightly different approach to the situation. Perhaps, be slightly gentler than usual. She is a virgin, after all. Logan had a lot of nerves to speak to
Avalyn's POVIt‘s Now or Never However, I wasn‘t alone for long. Night fell quickly over the pack, and soon after Natalie left the room, I heard a knock on the door. “Miss Avalyn, can we come in?” It was Mrs. White again, with two other young girls. “Of course, please!” I replied politely. I was still not used to being served. One of the younger girls placed some salad in front of me. The doctor‘s order had to be followed, so I started eating while watching the rest of the group working on my room. Like last time, they lit the candles, ran the hot water, and added flower petals.Mrs. White noticed that I had put down my plate, so she walked over to help me get into the bath.“I… may I do it myself?” I asked Mrs. White with as much courage as I could muster.“Miss Avalyn, it‘s our job to prepare you…”“I insist. Please?”I wanted to do this on my own. It just didn‘t feel right having other women get me ready to lose my virginity.Mrs. White hesitated for a moment. Then she nodded
Avalyn's POVGeorgia will be Back Particles of dust danced against the rays of light that filtered in through my open window. I opened my eyes slowly, still feeling disoriented. What happened to me last night? Yes… I took the pills, then Grey came, and then… We had sex. My first time. Memories started to flow back to me. It was like a dream beyond my wildest imagination. It was like watching a movie through a blurry window, except for the extreme pain and pleasure that was so vivid that I knew it wasn‘t a dream. The sunshine was too bright. I lifted my hand to cover my eyes when I realized every inch of my whole body ached. There were some light bruises over my skin, and they reminded me that I was no longer a virgin.“Not a virgin anymore.. He claimed me.” I covered my face with my hands. Tears streamed down my face, yet I wasn‘t sure why I was crying. Maybe for the loss of my virginity, maybe for the pain all over my body, or maybe… I was ashamed of the pleasure he brought me.
Avalyn's POV After the night I spent with Alpha Grey, I had expected to see him again, but I didn‘t. He never once came to visit. There was no compassion, no concern, no want or desire from him. I was nothing more than a task – a tool he needed. I was sure how I was going to be able to get past all the waiting, but, eventually, I found small ways to entertain myself. Art had become a big one, and when Rebecca realized I loved to paint and draw, she made sure I had everything set up in my own private art studio – considering the music room was off limits for the time being. Days turned into weeks, and, before I knew it, I began to lose track of time. The vast green fields around the Draco pack were beautiful. The peaceful village could be seen from the pack house, and the golden sunshine made everything seem upbeat and hopeful. I loved to draw the sunny sky the most — it reminded me of his clear blue eyes. A soft knocking at the door to the art room had me turning my head to see
