Alexa’s pov 🎀
An awkward silence!
A very awkward silence!
Xander and I sits on a love sofa opposite Aunt, her gaze is solely on me… and to make matters worse, she wears a knowing smirk.
I couldn’t take it anymore, so I move closer to Xander.. impossibly closer to Xander.
I grab his arm and hide my face on his back, slightly.
Xander clears. “Mom, stop staring at my baby, you’re embarrassing her!”
Aunt ignores him and starts looking between us… My cheeks flame up, I take a peek at Xander and notice his ears and neck all red.
“Mom!” Xander calls aunt.
She suddenly bursts into laughter, making me sink more into my embarrassment.
So laughs so hard that she’s holding her stomach, tears threatening to fall from her eyes.
“Mom, stop it!”
Aunt laughs a few more minutes then sobers up, though she’s still fighting to hold back her laughter.
“I have never in my life imagine I’ll walk in on my son and daughter-in-law mating!”
Aunt pause and stares at us again, then raises her hands up.
“I swear, I didn’t hear or see anything!”
She holds her cheeks and puffs out air from her mouth.. she uses her hands to fan herself as if the living room is too hot.
“Oh my goodness! I’m blushing! I’m blushing!” She chants.
I face palm myself. Why didn’t we lock the door?!
She wouldn’t have barge in if the door was locked! Then I remembered it was Xander who carried me in like a cave man!
He didn’t lock the door! This is all his fault!
I grab his skin, just below his ribcage and give him a very hard pinch.
He whines but quickly clears his throat to cover it up.
“Mom, what are you doing here?” He asked.
“I thought you guys won’t go to school today after what the seer said, so I came to check on you guys… ”
She trails off and look between Xander and I mischievously.
“I didn’t expect I’d witness you two….. ” She didn’t complete her statement.
She covers her face with her hands… Even though she didn’t finish her words, I still know what she wants to say.
Aunt giggles excitedly. I frown slightly, why is she getting all giddy? I’m the one caught in the act!
I guess aunt is even more of a drama queen than Micah!
“Er.. as you can see we’re both fine, you can go back now!” Xander said.
Aunt nods in agreement.
“Yes! You’re fine! Very fine! Super fine!” She said and winks at me.
I bite my tongue.
“But I’m not leaving yet!”
“What?! Why?!” Xander asked.
“I came here for three reasons!”
I hear Xander sighs, aunt hears him too but ignores him and continue.
“First, I came to check on you, to know if you’re ok… But from what I witnessed, you are ok and don’t need any consolation, right Alexa?”
I tensed hearing her ask me such question.
“Y-yes!” I answer in a short stutter.
“Secondly, Xander, your dad wants to see you… it’s about your uncle!”
Xander tensed as he heard that, I see his fist clenching and I leans forward slightly to study his expression.
Anger was clearly written in his eyes… Anger and hatred are the only things in his eyes.
I wonder what happened!
“You could have mind-link me and tell me!”
“Shut up, young man!” She scolds him.
Aunt turns her gaze to me and smile.
“Thirdly, I wanna have a chat with Alexa. We haven’t sit down and talk as mother-in-law and daughter-in-law!”
Mother-in-law and daughter-in-law? What does she wanna know about me?
“There’s a lot of things I don’t know about you, dear!”
I simply smile and nod. Xander turns to aunt with narrowed eyes.
“I don’t wanna hear anything about that bastard! Tell dad I’m busy!”
“No, I’m not gonna tell him that. Get up and get your butts to the palace now!” Aunt said in a pleading tone…though she sounded a bit harsh.
But all he could do is growl, she’s his mother after all.
“I’m not asking you, I’m ordering you! Get you up!” She growls and I flinch back slightly.
Since I knew aunt, today’s the first I seen her being bossy… Xander gets up grumpily.
“I’ll keep Alexa company!” Aunt said.
He doesn’t say a word, he hears to the door angrily and shuts it with in a loud bang as he steps out.
Hmm, why does he hates his uncle? Is there some kind of feud between them? Who is this uncle anyway?!
I snap back to reality when aunt jumps on the sofa, and sits on the position where Xander just sat a few seconds ago.
She grabs my hands and stares at me lovingly… in her eyes I can see love, the kind of love a mother carries for her child.
“Alexa, darling, you don’t have to be shy around me, I totally understand!”
“You’re both young… it’s my fault for barging in like that, I’m sorry!”
Oh god! Isn’t it embarrassing enough that she caught Xander and I having s£x? Must she bring it up?
She laughs lightly and caresses my cheek.
“You’re blushing all over!” She said.
“Aunt, can we talk about something else?” I asked politely.
“Of course, dear, you’re so shy!”
“Er…. ” I trail off.
Aunt shakes her head and clears her throat.
“Well, I came because I need your help with something!”
“What is it, aunt?” I asked.
“I want you to accompany me write some invitations!”
“Are we having a party?”
“Yes, your induction ceremony! We’ll send invitations to Lunas of all the packs.. I want you to accompany me while I write them!”
“Are the invitations handwritten?” I asked.
Handwritten? That’s so outdated, this is the 21century..nobody sends a handwritten letters now.
She can just send the invitations via email…or maybe the Lunas aren’t much.
“How many Lunas are we inviting?”
My eyes grows wide, I can imagine them falling off my eye sockets.
She nods. When is she gonna finish writing them?
“Can’t you send them via email?”
“No, it’s more respectful and sincere when it’s handwritten!” She explains.
“B-but, b-but that’s so much work!” I exclaims.
“Don’t panic, hon. We aren’t finishing it today, we will do it bit by bit!”
I sighs, better! I can’t imagine me sitting down and writing letters to 67 people…my neck spring will break and my shoulders will pull off.
“Also, you’re coming with me to the ballroom to check out some designs and choose colors for curtains…the event planner will arrive soon!”
“When is the induction ceremony holding?”
I simply nod. She gets up and picks her purse, then gives me her hand.
I take it and she helps me up.
“Let’s go!” She said. “You’re going to learn how to be a Luna!”
Writer’s pov 🎀
Xander storms into his father’s office without knocking and sits on a chair in front of his father’s desk.
Two pile of files heap on the table.. the pile on the right side are already signed and the pile on the left aren’t signed yet.
“Dad, mom said you’re looking for me?”
His father raised his head and drops the pen he was holding on the table… He puts his elbows on the table and crosses his fingers.
“Where are your manner?” His father asked.
Xander frown like he doesn’t understand.
“I have told you, in this office or my palace, I am your alpha King.. you can call me dad at home!”
Xander rolls his eyes and gets up, he steps out and knocks on the door.
“Come in!” His father said.
He strolls in and bows slightly.
“Sit!” His father shows him the chair he was just sitting.
He sits down and folds his arms across his chest.
“I sent for you to let you know the elders change their minds and we’re holding your coronation and your mate’s induction next week!”
Xander raised an eyebrow.
“Next week? Aren’t I going to alpha Dimitri’s birthday party next week?”
“We’re holding the coronation and induction ceremony before the birthday… so I want you and your mate to prepare!”
“I believe you’ve mated?”
Xander look away from his dad and scratches the back of his neck nervously.. his ears turns pink.
“Dad, that isn’t something I can discuss with you!”
“Well, I’ll take that as a yes. The s£x part will be cancelled from the induction since it’s not needed now!”
Xander nods and sighs in relieve, he smiles.
Then there’s a brief silence as his father goes back to signing a file. Xander clears his throat.
“Dad, if that’s all, I’ll take my leave!”
His father clears his throat, he closes the file he was signing and dropped the pen again.
“About the seer’s prophecy, I find it a bit suspicious!” He said.
This catches Xander’s full attention, he leans on the table to balance himself.
“I know about the prophecy, but my dad.. which is your grandfather.. once told me, that the prophecy happened during the reign of his great-grandfather!”
“It has happened?! During the reign of his great grandfather?!” Xander asked.
His father nods.
He reaches for his locker and rampages through it, he brings out a very old paper and drops it on the table…the paper is so thick.
Xander quickly picks it and opens it…he reads it to himself.
*… when the two species (the witches and the wolves) are in peace.. a female child will be born, her birth will creat havoc and chaos in the supernatural world… she’ll be mated with the alpha King and shall be the queen of witches.. witches shall wage war with wolves to claim their queen.. only her mate can bring peace to the supernatural world…only her mate can save her… A life for a life!*
Xander drops the paper on the table slowly and frowns at his dad for further explanation.
“As you have just read, the prophecy about the witches and wolves is true but there’s no mention of a vampire prince mate!”
Xander quickly recalls what he read and realizes there really was no mention of a vampire prince.
“And that is what made me suspecious of him.. and according to my father this prophecy has happened in his great grandfather’s time.. his great grandfather died to save his mate!”
His father pause and reaches for the coffee on his table and takes a sip.
“The seer is lying?”
“Yes! I didn’t believe his prophecy so I sent some of the pack trackers to keep an eye on him… They heard him talking to someone on the phone, which actually confirm my doubts.. he’s lying!”
Xander bangs on the table and growls lowly.
“He dares lie to the alpha’s face! I’ll kill him!”
“No!” Xander frown deeply at his father. “We don’t know why he lied, and we don’t know who he’s working for! Let’s continue watching him and pretend like we don’t know of his little lie!”
Xander grumpily look away from his father, gritting his teeth.
“You knew he was lying why didn’t you tell me?! I was busy comforting my mate and thinking of how to resolve everything without bloodshed!”
“Oh, I wanted to see if you and your mate are gonna panic.. but surprisingly you didn’t.. your mom even mind-link me of how active you both are before you got here!”
Xander scoffs. Then Xander recalls something.
“But if he is lying, how do you explain my mate’s eyes glowing that day in the woods… Also, I haven’t felt her wolf since then, like her wolf disappeared!”
His father chuckles lightly.
“I believe that’s the seer’s little trick to make us believe she’s really a witch! Her wolf will be back when the spell cast on her wears off!”
“When is that gonna be?”
“I don’t know, maybe when the time is right!”
“Oh!” Xander nods thoughtfully.. he’s secretly happy that his mate is a wolf after all.
“Right, some of our fighter spot your uncle near the orphanage!”
Xander’s eyes hardens and he clenched his jaw.
“What does he want? I thought he left and promised never to return?”
“I don’t know what brought him back, but I want you to go to the orphanage later.. make sure everything is ok there!”
Xander doesn’t say a word but his father knows Xander heard him.
“That’s all, go back and explain to your mate, lest she’ll die of panic attack!”
“Alright, please excuse me Alpha!” Xander said and heads back.
Alexa’s pov 🎀
“Wow!” I awed. “This decor is beautiful”
“Really?” Aunt asked.
I nod, smiling happily… this is the most beautiful ballroom I’ve ever seen… even the ones in the movies aren’t as dreamy as this.
“I think so too, but that’s my style… we’re gonna change it to your style before your induction!” Aunt said.
“Why are we changing it?! This is beautiful.. really, really beautiful!”
“It’s tradition, darling, every Luna queen chooses their own design for their induction ceremony!” She explains.
I sighed, the smile on my face wipes off.
This is the most beautiful ballroom I’ve seen, I don’t think I can do anything better than this.. for crying out loud, I don’t even know any designs!
Aunt seems to notice my discomfort and puts an arm on my shoulder.
“Don’t worry, darling, that’s why we hired an event planner.. she’ll be here soon!”
“Let’s go over there and sit down!” She said and points at a table.
We walk towards the table and sits down.
Aunt claps her hands and two maids walk towards us.. envelopes.. plain sheets.. pens.. on a tray in their hands.
They drops them gently on the table and bows slightly before walking back to the direction they came from.
“So we’ll start writing the invitations to while away time until your event planner comes!” Aunt said.
She puts some sheets of papers in front of me and hands me a pen.
“I’ll write one as a sample for you, then you can follow suit!”
I nod and she starts writing. When she’s done, she hands it to me with a warm smile.
“You can use that!”
“Thanks, aunt!” I said.
She simply smiles and raffles my hair gently, I starts writing.. aunt also starts writing.
Few minutes gone, aunt suddenly ask a question.
“Alexa, what do you think about my boy?”
“Your boy?” I asked, slightly confused.
“Xander!” She replies.
“Oh, Xander has being nice to me.. he’s caring.. cold on the outside but warm inside and he loves me too!”
“I already know that, honey, I mean, what do you think of him? How do you feel around him?”
Oh, she wants to know what I feel for Xander? How should I explain it to her?
“Are you just with him because he’s your mate? Or because you really love him?”
Wait… Why is she suddenly asking me this?
“Is he your ideal man? Does he meets your criteria?”
Ok, this is a college entrance examination!
