||DOMINIC’S POV|| Weather in Wilfair had its own taste, something I had never experienced before. The atmosphere always had a curse flowing in it, as if this place was forbidden and the fog danced in front of the tinted glass of my window. It was a good way to hide before I could unleash myself and put someone to their grave. Never had I thought that this dead town could be so interesting. And there was one person who made it beautiful, my sweet mate. I saw her walking in the line of other classmates. It was their P.E. class as per I knew what their schedule had. This was the time I could see her so I chose to sit in my car and watch my little kitten do the long jumps. Her hair was tied in a ponytail, the brown waves of her strands cascading down on her small shoulders like a waterfall. Her plump lips moved apart and closed while she spoke to her other friend who I had seen Sky dance with her at the party. I saw a bit of my own reflection in the window of my car, a smile adorning
I played Cheap Thrills on my phone as I got ready for the day. I was so happy! My mission was successful and Sam could not mark me. Now I could focus on my grades and make a plan to get out of Wilfair. With this plan being successful, I had some confidence and looked up to the brighter side of my future. “Av, have your breakfast.” My mom chirped as she slid the plate towards my side on the table and I was surprised to find waffles with chocolate syrup on it. Even my parents were in a good mood today. Last night, they interrogated me for almost an hour on how I met the Alpha and how lucky I was that I got to dance with him. My mom did not leave the chance to brag about it to our neighbors who surely were jealous. I didn’t care what our neighbors felt, but after such a long time I saw my parents being genuinely happy. I was slowly getting at their good side again. Maybe things would go back to normal as they used to. Once I was in Winterville, I met Jannet and Candice and we all la
My heart drummed in my chest. I already had a crazy day, I didn’t know if I had it in me to take more. Why did the Alpha of all people pay a visit to our house?What if he was here to punish us for how I spoke to him before I knew about him? But I did apologize!“Av.” My mother whispered giving me the eye that said, “Greet him back.”I looked back at Dominic and said, “Good afternoon Alpha. A pleasure to see you.”Dominic smiled at me and cocked his head, while Aiden looked at him innocently. “Are you? That is wonderful to know.”I frowned as I did not understand what he meant by his question. Did he somehow realize that I was uncomfortable in his presence?“We cannot believe a day would come when the Alpha himself would grace us with his presence. After all, we are just humans.” dad said with a smile but he was also uncomfortable and doubtful of Dominic’s visit.Humans were considered the lowest of all in the town and due to that, wolves tend to not interact with us. It was a matter o
There was silence in the room and my eyes were wide as saucers, gulping down what he just said.“I don’t understand, Alpha,” Dad said and Dominic’s mischievous smile only broadened.“It is quite simple. Avery will now live with me. When does a human girl come to live together with a male wolf?” he directed the question at my parents while I was frozen at my spot.My mom gasped and she clasped her mouth. Her green eyes turned wide and stared in my direction, “Is it really…true?”Dad had a look of concern falling on his face, “She is your mate?”The tray fell from my hand and made a loud thumping sound as it met the floor. My hands were shaking as I processed what dad was talking about.Me? His mate? The Alpha’s mate?!!“This can’t be true.” My voice trembled and the words came out like a soft whisper but from Dominic’s burning gaze on me, I knew he heard.“You think I would lie, Avery?” He cocked his head to the side, his eyes narrowing slightly as if challenging me to call him a liar.
There was silence in the car, with the sound of the tires and the drumming of my heart profound in my ears. I kept as much distance as possible from Dominic and kept my gaze away from him. Still, I could feel him looking at me and I gritted my teeth.Things changed so quickly. I was in my college, insulted in front of everyone and the next minute, I was declared to be the Alpha’s mate. Was this some kind of a bad dream?I pinched my right cheek hard in hopes of it being a nightmare, but when it stung, I realized that I was living the nightmare. I was taken away from my family and had to live with a person forever, pretending to be his soulmate just because of some stupid chemical bond.“You know, loathing about what happened will not make the pain go away.” His husky voice came from the back and I snapped my head at him,How dare he say that when he was the one who took everything away from me?!I glared at him, showing my point, and then looked back at the window. Suddenly, I felt his
I stared at his face, fuming inside. How could he just do things that always favored him in some way or the other?I didn’t want to follow his orders like a slave, because it would mean that I gave in. Which I would never! But he left me no choice.I closed my eyes softly in a sigh and pushed myself out of the car. I didn’t hold his hand and he did not say anything about it. I looked straight ahead and saw the front view of the mansion which was going to be my personal jail now.My personal jail did not look like one as the facade was constructed with beautiful, pigeon white walls and two tall, thick pillars held a roof that shadowed the entrance door. It was strange how I never noticed this much as I was busy saving my ass and neck in the ball.Dominic walked forward and I followed, staying two steps behind him. His broad back moved with a sense of pride and confidence. I couldn’t believe that he was my mate.If we met in general, he would have never laid his eyes on someone like me.
I looked at his finger which had my hair strand twisted on it like a creeper growing on a pillar. Somehow, I felt that the action represented his type of love for me.Twisted.He let go of my hair and pulled his spine back to his ramrod, proud posture. He turned to the lady who was watching us with big eyes as if she saw something out of the place. It indeed was out of the place given the alpha was showing his affections publicly. Most of them preferred to look intimidating.Though, he was one, to say the least. And also shameless!I couldn’t believe I let him carry me like a vegetable sack into the car. Even my parents must have seen that and now if I thought about it, it felt utterly mortifying.He looked back at me and his eyes subtly narrowed, noticing my glare at him.“What?”“You pulled me up in front of my parents. That’s disrespectful.” I said and saw the maid’s eyes widen at the way I spoke to the Alpha.Dominic didn’t seem to be offended and said, “And whose fault is that?” I
“Give me my phone back!” I said and placed my palm forward for him to put the phone in my hand.He raised a brow, “Your phone?” He pulled out something from his pocket and my eyes narrowed noticing that it was indeed my phone in his hand, “Are you talking about this?”“Yes! Now give it back.”He looked at the model as if examining it and then pushed it back in his pocket, “Better if it stays with me.”What the hell!“You can’t do that. That’s my phone.” I said and he sipped his tea, placed the cup on the glass center table with a clinking sound, and leaned his back on the sofa,“I suggest you don’t use that tone with me, kitten. You are forgetting who I am.” He said, a small smile planted on his face, but his eyes told a different story. He looked angry.I scratched my neck and lowered my voice, “I am sorry. But I need my phone." Amidst all this craziness, I totally forgot that I was held captive by a powerful man who if wished, could destroy me and my family. I could take his blows,
