In a small town where no one leaves, and no one comes in, a myth lives. In a town that is surrounded by a legend of cruel, murderous wolves that kill the innocent in command of an Alpha. An Alpha, centuries old, that is said to be the cruelest man to ever live. Thea doesn't believe the legends for a second, until a handsome stranger with violet eyes appears, and people from around town start going missing. But what Thea doesn't know, is that this man is someone she never thought existed...And the bond they share when touching, is one of a kind.View More
~Jasper's "How the hell did you manage to get yourself in this situation?"Sighing deeply, I brace my hands against the table, trying to hold myself back from doing something irrational. Thea has been missing for over eight hour now, and we have no leads as to where Luca may have taken her. At this point, he could have taken her to any Pack, and we are still here in the Love Pack,.My jaw clenched. The internal battle I've committed to is weakening, but I won't stop for a second, until I'm with Thea again. I won't eat. I won't sleep."I was trying to be a good mate," I mutter, raising my gaze to his own. "How was I supposed to know this would happen?"The Alpha of Vengeance stood in front of me. Aside from me, he one of the oldest Alpha's that lives today. Kaden and I never used to hold the best relationship, but our disagreements have recently been resolved, and I now find him a valuable friend. With what has just happened, I believe he may be the only one who can assist me."So wha
~TheaLuckily for me, it wasn't snowing when I ventured outside. Already, from the moment I stepped out of Malik's home, I felt better. Just breathing in the crisp air, letting it filter all my thoughts thoroughly was a relief, and for the first time in awhile, my muscles began to relax, despite the difficulty of pushing through the snow on Malik's lawn. If I can just spend a few minutes walking around, then I can go back and hear Jasper out.Quite frankly, my mind had found it hard to fathom the fact that Jasper is my mate. An Alpha? My rational mind passes many things off as coincidence, but I know for a fact, that this is Fate.And now I know the true reason why he wanted me to escape so badly.By the time I reach the streets of the Love Pack, snow has seeped into my shoes, and realisation has hit that maybe the coat I grabbed isn't enough. At least the struggles through the snow had warmed me up enough to actually make my legs work. Everybody else that I walk past seem unfazed by
~TheaThere is no doubting, that everything has changed. That I am no longer how I was yesterday.Jasper stood behind me, staring into the mirror as I did. Something was so common between us, there is no mistaking it. Our eyes. Just looking at it made me want to claw my eyes out. That deep-set violet shade had taken over my once hazel eyes, infecting me with the colour I had admired about Jasper. Now it belongs to me too, although, it hardly amounts to what I see in Jasper's eyes. His are alight and dazzling, vivid with colour. Mine are still bland and rather lifeless.Still, there is an uncanny resemblance, which suggests that I'm not actually alive still. I'm not dead either. I'm just a walking body without beating heart."I'm a Phantom," I breath, running my fingertips down my cheek, that is an awful transparent colour. Perhaps if I had ever seen a dead person, I could relate myself to them, but Jasper is the closest I have gotten, and he is like a walking masterpiece.Jasper move
~TheaMy eyes closed at the same time the water closed around my face.The warmth of the water and the feel of Jasper's hands on my shoulders did nothing to quell the fright the instantly consumed me. My body wanted to retaliate, as my last gulp of air bubbles out of my mouth. The feeling was nothing like I had felt before, as I felt water slip between my lips, the water like a hand on my neck, slowly strangling the life out of me.Forcing my eyes open, I could see the shadow of Jasper looming over me, as he held my shoulders back against the bottom of the tub. I trust him...I have no choice.Involuntarily, as a sudden surge of fright for the lack of breath I was getting hit, my legs jerked up, my body convulsing in protest. The water stung my eyes, as I tried to see Jasper, to try to beg him to stop. Doubts ran through my mind, hurdling all the logic easily. This isn't comfortable...This isn't like falling asleep.Blinking through the water, I notice what is probably Malik, coming fo
~Thea I had always told myself that I wouldn't find my mate. There was an entire part of me that had accepted the fact that I would never feel those sparks, or be able to spend the rest of my life with someone I was made for. And there was no way I thought that my mate would ever be an Alpha. Let alone the Alpha of Devotion.However, there was no denying what was going on, with Jasper's hands cradling my face, his lips on mine...There were sparks there, and the undeniable voice in my head screaming, he's your mate!Stunned, I was still, trying to fathom the feeling. Sparks were a feeling I couldn't put words to. They spread from his hands, through his lips, right across my body, weakening my limbs, so I was completely open to the feeling. The tiny electric like jolts were almost relaxing, but at the exact same time, they enlightened a foreign feeling inside me.It was second nature, as I began kissing back, taking a part of me that controlled my conscious by surprise, but I shunned
~TheaInside the cabin was just as inviting as the outside. It was the small, the furnishings were subtle, and the entire place almost seemed to bundle you up in the fireplace-which Jasper's magic lit-warm embrace.The moment Jasper ushered me inside, I was awed by the entire thing. With wooden interior beams on the ceiling, that match what might suffice as wallpaper, the small space seemed warm, friendly, and inviting. Despite my wariness of what Jasper called faux, the rug on the floor looked softer than silk.Jasper took my jacket, as I shrugged it off. "And Malik, of all people created this?"The Alpha chuckled. He knew what Malik was like, and if I told him about the girl-Vanessa, or whatever her name is-then I'm sure he wouldn't be surprised. I just found it ironic that the Alpha of Love decided to spend his time with beautiful women warming his bed, rather than actually looking for his mate.I expected him, of all people, to hunt the entire land for her. "He did. There is a ro
~TheaJasper gave me some space, which I spent in the bathroom trying to make myself look nice. He promised me, that we would be going out, to make my last day alive good for me. I combed my hair through with my fingers, patting down the strands that stuck out in places. If I had a tie, I maybe would have braided my hair. Instead, I pushed it over my shoulders, and hoped it looked somewhat decent. My clothes were rumpled, but I didn't have Jasper's magic to conjure up clothes, and I wasn't about to ask him for a pretty dress or something.This will do. I can still wear clothes when I'm a Phantom.I refused to think about what was going to happen tomorrow. Today was all I could think about, as well as Jasper's enticing promise about something special tonight. I had no idea what it was, but he told me that it had to do with a secret he's been keeping.My insistent curiosity is going to keep me on edge about it all day, I know it.Rinsing my face, I wash the dried tears from my cheeks.
~TheaJasper paced in front of me.I sat on the edge of the bed, my leg stretched out in front of me. The blanket was still wrapped around my waist, but honestly, I don't care anymore. Too many things swim in my mind, trying to fit somewhere, but it was failing, leaving me feeling empty, and numb."I don't want to die," I say softly, watching Jasper as he thinks.Malik had given us some space to talk things through, to discuss how Jasper was going to end my life. However, the moment we were left alone, Jasper was starting to realise he was actually going to stop my heart from beating, and I realised this is really happening."I'm sorry to have dragged you into this mess," Jasper murmurs, finally coming to a stop. I've never seen him look so lost, so distraught in a situation. He isn't holding himself together as well as I have seen him do, and it doesn't help my jittering nerves.I sigh deeply, trying to get some breath into my lungs. "It's not your fault. It didn't, I would be dead b
~Thea"I-I...Me?"My hardly coherent stuttering didn't go unnoticed, in the way Malik smiled knowingly, and my cheeks reddened in response. Where has my brain gone? It seems to have melted under the heated gaze Malik assaults me with. The first flicker of salvation was like a knock on the back of my head with a very insistent fist. I've spent a lot of my life being intimidated by Luca, and I'm not about to show weakness like that in front of anyone again. Malik may be an Alpha, but I'm a woman who knows how to hold a gaze, and cover my emotions with an impassive cloth."Sorry you had to see that," he said coolly, standing back straight again. Clearly he was referring to Vanessa. "I'm sure you've been waiting for quite some time."My eyes narrow, as I respond a little too abruptly. "Not really."Malik watches me carefully, openly searching my face curiously. He was probably wondering what was behind the sudden change of tact, but I wasn't about to mention it. I knew what he was insinu
