Alexa’s pov 🎀
I gently pound on the bathroom door and listen if I can hear any movement… strangely enough I can hear a heartbeat.
I believe that’s Eleanor, I knock on the door again.
“Eleanor, open up, it’s me.. Alexa!” I said.
She didn’t open up, nor did she make any sound. I knock again.
“Eleanor! Micah said you wanna see me… I’m here now, please open the door!”
“He’ll see me!” She replied from inside.
He? I guess she’s talking about Micah.
“Micah? He’s not here, it’s just me!” I told her.
“Yeah, just me, open up!”
There’s silence and soon I hear movement inside.. then she opens the door.
She jumps into my arms immediately and starts crying.. I gently pats her back.
“He hates me now! Luna, he hates me now!”
I don’t know why she’s saying this but I still pat her and whisper in her ear.
“He doesn’t hate you, he loves you!”
She cried some more until she couldn’t cry anymore, then I led her towards the bed.
She tensed when she saw Miss Damien and Joyce, but they wave and smile at her.. her body relax a little bit.
“Now, tell me what happened, Eleanor. Why did you lock yourself inside the bathroom?” I asked.
No response from her, she just plays with her fingers on her laps nervously.
“Why are you hiding from Micah?” I asked again.
She stares at me for a few minutes, biting her lower lip like she doesn’t wanna say it.
“Eleanor, I’m your friend, don’t hesitate to tell me anything.. I’m here to help you!”
She nods slowly.. she shuts her eyes and inhale slowly.
“My scars!” She replies.
“Your scars?!” I asked.
She nods again.
“Can I see them?”
I wait for her to say something, she stares at her arm.. I follow her gaze and a gasp almost left my mouth.
There are scars.. little, little scars all over her arms. She showed me her legs too, there are scars on her legs.
“Goodness! How did you get these?” I asked.
She quickly covers them and clears her throat.
“They’re ugly, right! Sorry, if I scared you”
I shake my head.
“No, no! You didn’t scare me, I just wanna know how you get these scars!”
I wait for her to speak but she didn’t. She look between Joyce and Miss Damien, as if they’re gonna mock her or something.
“Don’t worry, they won’t judge!” I turn to them. “Right?”
They nod and pass her a reassuring smile.. Eleanor smile back weakly.
“Can you tell me now?”
“I inflect them on myself!” She replies.
I frown deeply and exchange looks with Miss Damien and Joyce…I turn back to her.
“You mean you put these scars on yourself?”
“Why would you do that? Don’t you feel pain doing this to yourself?”
“I don’t feel pain, I’ve had enough pain in my life to last a lifetime!”
“What do you mean?”
How can someone inflect scars on themselves? Or is she going through some kind of difficulty?
“I wasn’t born an Omega, my father were once fighters in this pack but unfortunately he died in a battle… my mum was pregnant with me then.. but I guess I wasn’t a lucky child, my mum died too during childbirth.. when giving birth to me.. so I was taken to the pack’s orphanage!”
This pack have an orphanage?! I look at Eleanor, she’s not sobbing but tears are running down her cheeks.
“Everything was good… everything was normal until I turned 9, the aunty taking care of me in the orphanage died in the woods when she took me out for some art work.. it is said that she died protecting me from a rogue.. since then, everyone started calling me names and hating me… ”
She’s just like me, the people we love died protecting us with their lives.
She wipes her tears.
“They said I’m a jinx, that anyone that comes close to me must die… they started maltreating me.. making me do all the chores… making me their punching bag… anybody that’s in a bad mood will just come to me and pass on all their anger on me… at times, I don’t eat anything for two days… ”
“Why didn’t you report this to the king?” I asked.
“I report it to the alpha’s office and those people involved were punished and warned… they behave for some weeks.. but continue again, the more I complain.. the worse it’ll get.. so I just stopped complaining!”
“The only way I can forget about the way they’re treating me.. is by cutting myself!”
I shake my head and pulled her into a hug… I wipe her tears.
“That’s why I didn’t wanna accept my mate.. nothing good ever comes from me!”
I pull away from the hug and smile at her.
“Everything good comes out of you.. Micah and I are good people, aren’t we?” I asked.
“Right! If nothing good comes out of you, you wouldn’t encounter a good person like me… If nothing good comes out of you, you wouldn’t have Micah as your mate!”
“But what about all the bullying?”
“That was because you have no one.. it’s different now, you have me.. and Micah too.. if anybody bullies you, they’ll have us to answer to!”
She stares at me like she doesn’t believe me.
“Trust me, I’m your friend… your best friend if you’ll want me to… I’ll stand by your side anytime you need me!”
Joyce clears her throat and moves forward, she takes Eleanor’s hand.
“And me too, if you’re Alexa’s friend then you’re my friend too.. and I don’t abandon my friends!” Joyce smiles.
Miss Damien raised her hand up.
“Count me in too!”
“See? We are all here for you! We are ready to protect you!” I told her.
She nods and smiles brightly but her smile falters… She frowns as if she just realized something.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“My mate… He.. will he like me?”
“He loves you more than anything else!”
“Are you sure?”
“He’s my brother and I know him more than anyone else, he’s already head over heels for you… He even sacrificed his face for you all through the night!”
She frowns slightly.
“His face?! Did something happen to his face?!”
I exchange looks with Miss Damien and Joyce and we shared a laugh.
“Why are you laughing?” She asked.
“Nothing happened to him, he’s fine.. he just got some dark circles under his eyes!”
“Dark circles?!” I nod. “I thought you said he sacrificed his face for me!”
“Oh, Micah doesn’t joke with his looks, his appearance… him having dark circles under his eyes is a big deal to him”
She thinks about it and finally understand what we mean.
Miss Damien, Joyce and I laughed at her expression.
“So, Eleanor, we are all here for you!”
Joyce jumps up and spreads her arms open.. a big smile on her face.
“Group hug!” She said.
Miss Damien and I rushed in but Eleanor still remains seated… I pulled her up and bring her into the hug.
“Starting now, Eleanor is welcomed into our friends circle!” Miss Damien declares and we all cheered.
We pull away from the hug with big smile on our faces.
“Now we’re touring around before your mate interrupted us, do you wanna join?” I asked her.
“Then fix your face let’s go!”
She nods and rushes into the bathroom…. Miss Damien taps my shoulder and flashes me a smile.
“You’re already performing your duties!”
“My duties?” I asked with a confused frown.
“Yeah, you’re already caring for your pack members just as a Luna should!”
Joyce nods in agreement.
“I noticed that too!” She supports miss Damien.
I rolled my eyes and blush a little.
“Eleanor, hurry up!” I said.
We need to finish this tour in time.. to avoid running into Xander or things might get ugly.
Writer’s pov 🎀
“Connor, how is it going?” Xander asked as he walks into the dungeon.
Connor throws the whip on the ground and picks a small saw.
“Alpha, they still don’t wanna talk!”
Xander nods and stops in front of them.. he grab the first guy’s chin and lifts his head up.
“Are you gonna save our f**king time and talk?!” He growled lowly.
“What do you think you can do if I tell you? You think you can take all of us down?!”
Xander lets go his chin and balled his fist… he clenched his jaw and glare at the guy.
“I dare you to find them yourself, let’s see how strong you really are, alpha?” He mocks Xander.
“If my Luna can take down all seven of you.. then you don’t even stand a chance against my alpha!” Connor growled in his face.
“Really, then I dare him to go find them!!”
“I dare you to tell us where they are!” Connor retort.
“Over my dead body!”
Xander growls and draws out a small gun from his pocket and points it at the guy.
“Then let’s send you to your grave, yeah?”
The guy scoff.
“Even if you kill me, my team will come to avenge me.. by then, all of you will be six feet under!”
“That’s exactly what I want, they should come to me!”
Xander cocks the gun and the guy’s eyes grow wide.
“You humans love playing with guns, yeah?” The guy shakes his head but Xander ignores him. “Let’s see how it works!”
Then he pulls the trigger and the bullet goes straight to his head… he turns to the other guy and does the same thing to him.
“No time to waste on these filthy hunters! Clean up this mess!” He said to Connor.
“Er..Xander are you going somewhere?” Connor asked.
“King’s office!” He simply replies.
“Is there a meeting?”
“Not yet, just going to tell him that my mate shifted!”
Xander frowns when he heard someone scream.
He turns and sees Micah standing behind him…a shocked expression on his face.
“What are you doing here?” Xander asked.
Micah chuckles. “Just checking out the dungeon!”
Xander raised an eyebrow, wondering why someone would want to check out the dungeon rooms.
“Oh? Why not spend a day in here and then you’ll know what it’s like?” Connor suggested.
Micah shakes his head and take slow steps backwards.
“No, no, no! Thank you very much Beta prince!” He grins.
“What are you thinking me for? Experience is the best teacher…come on in!” Connor said and leaps forward to catch him.
“Er…I have to tell my bro about Alexa’s shift… bye alpha…” He faces Connor. “…bye Beta!”
With that he rushes off… Xander and Connor shake their heads at how cowardly he ran away.
“Xander, your brother-in-law is one big coward”
Xander growls at him playfully.
“I dare you to say that again!”
“Oops! It slipped off my tongue!”
“Good, there are no cowards in my family!” He said indirectly mocking Micah.
He throws the gun on a small bench and walks out with his hands tucked in his pant’s pocket.
Alexa’s pov 🎀
“And this is the pack kitchen!” Joyce said.
I nod and look around, the kitchen is big, twice the size of Xander’s kitchen.
Two women are busy slicing vegetables.. meats.. carrots.. etc.
I gulp and suddenly starts feeling hungry at the sight. Joyce rushes to one of the women and jumps on her back.
The woman chuckles lightly and turn…she grabs Joyce’s cheek and pulls it.
“What are you doing here?”
“Mom, it hurts, it hurts!”
“You’ve seen your mate doesn’t mean you’ll be absent from school” she scolds Joyce.
She lets go of Joyce’s cheek and she rolls her eyeballs.
“I didn’t wanna be absent from school, but Xander gave me a task!”
Her mom smacks her head gently.
“Using Xander as an excuse again? Huh?”
Miss Damien clears her throat and Joyce’s mom, finally notice our presence in the kitchen.
“Oh! Your highness!” She bows slightly at Miss Damien.
She stares at me with a confused expression…I guess she doesn’t know me.
I open my mouth to tell her my name but Joyce comes to my side and links her arm with mine.
“Mom, let me introduce you! This is Xander’s mate, Alexa!”
Her mom quickly bows her head.
I’m embarrassed, I don’t know what to do… An elderly woman, old enough to be my mom is bowing down to me.
I rushed forward and help her up.
“Please, ma’am, call me Alexa… I’m Joyce’s friend!” I told her.
She smiles and nod. I breath in relief… I didn’t know how I would have convinced her if she had insisted on calling me Luna.
“Are you hungry? Do you want to eat? Drink?” She asked me.
I shake my head with a polite smile. “I’m good!” I said.
“Or maybe you wanna rest for a while?”
“No, ma’am, we are actually on a tour… So if you don’t mind, we’ll go on!” I said.
If I stay here, she’ll force me to eat something.. and I don’t wanna eat which she may find offensive.
I look at Miss Damien, Eleanor and Joyce and signal them to leave with me… they nod.
“Mom, we’re off!” Joyce said and pulls me out.
When we’re outside the packhouse, I laugh.
“Joyce, your mom is as lively as you.. and warm too!”
“Yeah, I got this trait from her!”
“Then why is Janet different from you guys?”
Joyce frowns slightly and thinks about it, then shakes her head.
“I don’t know, maybe she’s our nemesis!” She joke.
Miss Damien claps her hands and draws our attention.
“Our next stop is the training ground!”
“Why training ground?” I asked.
She puts her arm on my shoulders.
“I’m taking you to see some hot guys… s£xy bodies!”
“yeah! Come on!”
Writer’s pov 🎀
“…. It’s good that your mate has shifted!” The king said.
It’s only the king and Xander that are in his office right now.
“How is training going?!”
“Fine, I guess!”
“What do you mean you guess… you’re the future alpha King, you need to make sure your fighters are strong!”
“Dad, don’t tell me you want me to go to the training ground now!”
“Yeah, that’s what I mean!”
“I’m just coming back from the dungeon, I…. ”
“Go there now! You’re the alpha prince, you’re making me doubt your abilities!”
Xander clenched his jaw and got up.
“Fine! I’m going there now!”
Alexa’s pov 🎀
My mouth hangs open as I’m rendered speechless.. Miss Damien said they’re hot but she didn’t tell me they’re hundred percent hot.
I gaze at all the delicious bodies… strong abs and muscles… their faces are to die for.
Although, none of them can compare to my mate!
*Our mate is one s£x God!* Scarlett said in my head.
I rolled my eyes, I can imagine her wagging her tail right now… I really don’t know why wolves are horny creatures.
They stopped whatever they were doing and were staring at me… I wave them.
“Guys, this is Xander’s mate, your princess!” Miss Damien said.
They all quickly wants to bow but I stopped them and told them to continue with their training.
Some continue and some were busy staring at me… or maybe something behind me.
I hear a very loud, earth shaking growl behind me.
I turn around and Xander stands there with his fist balled by his side.. his eyes changing colors, between yellow and hazel.
“Uh-oh, this doesn’t look good!” Joyce whisper in my ear.
Xander’s eyes roam my body and I feel chills running down my spine.
He rushed past me and grabs one of the boys by his neck.. he lifts him off the ground and throws him against a tree.
He look around at the others but they quickly look away from him.
“I dare any of you to stare at my mate again!!” He growled.
None of them raise their heads, then he charge towards me.
“I’ll leave you to it!” Miss Damien said as she, Eleanor and Joyce runs away.
It’s just remaining me, I stood there slightly shaking because right now Xander is so damn angry.
Before I knew it, I’m seeing the world upside down… My hands and head dangling.
To be continued.
