I stood quietly looking at my locker, watching as my friends went to their separate groups, Quin with the rest of my pack and Molly with her friends. While we were at school, we didn't know each other that well.
"Well, well, would you look at what we have here boss,"
I heard someone from behind me say
"It's the stray little puppy who bumped into me yesterday," The girl who grabbed me yesterday said
making me hold back a growl for comparing me to a Cucciolo,
"Oh? it looks like you're right, Lex," Dante said with a menacing smirk
'Shit' is all I could think. I glanced towards my future pack to see them glaring at Dante and his gang for insulting their Alpha.
"Don't; it's not worth it," I said in the link.
"but he insulted you," Benny barked out through our link,
"I know, but you can't make a scene, so per favor, listen to me," I said to not just my brother but to all of them
they grumbled out together
I closed the mind link off, looking away from the rest of my friends. "What's the matter, can't speak, little puppy?" one member taunted with a smirk. There was the familiar feeling of my pack's restlessness, they were itching for a fight as I was insulted.
I glanced over to them and glared. They huffed and turned away. I suddenly felt someone grab the front of my shirt, I braced myself waiting for the punch to come, but before it did, the bell rang.
'oh, thank god, I thought to myself as they walked away and left me alone with my thoughts.
The last bell of the day was about to ring when my counselor called me to his office. As I made my way down to meet him, no matter how hard I thought about it, I couldn't think of a reason I was called down
I knocked on his door
"Come In!" I heard my counselor yell
I opened the door and went into the small room
"a-ah, Mr. Alesio," my counselor stuttered out I raised my brow at him,
did he not call me in?
"I didn't expect you so soon," the man said with a nervous smile
"I didn't expect myself here at all, so mind explaining?" I cut straight to the chase, no small talk needed
"R-right, well there's someone else coming so do you mind waiting until he gets here sir?" he said
He was nervous because he knew my status and he was naturally nervous around Alphas. after all he appears to be an omega. I sighed loudly
"Fine," I said exasperated.
"You can sit down if you like," he said with a small smile
"yeah sure," I said as I sat down.
It took 15 minutes for the other person to enter the room, which means 15 long minutes alone with the bald man across from me, around the 10-minute mark, I pulled out my phone and started messing with it. Five minutes later I looked up to see who we were waiting for and realized it was the one and only notorious bad boy, Dante Marley.
I entered the counselor's office late, and when I entered I noticed the cute little puppy that bumped into me was sitting on the couch in the corner messing with his phone, I automatically thought he snitched on me so a shot him a glare he glanced up, at least that's what I thought he did since I couldn't see his eyes behind his unruly hair and glasses, a complete nerd.
"ah Dante, It's nice of you to join us," Mr. Wrally drawled
"What do you want?" I asked wanting to leave. "Well I've noticed that your grades are slipping, and they are slipping fast," he said.
"so what," I asked annoyed
"well," the man's voice cracked so he swallowed and spoke again cautiously
"that's why Mr. Alesio is here, I would like him to tutor you,"
he said nervously. I took a glance at the nerd to see that he was already staring at the counselor with what looked like a glare. The old councilor flinched and looked away quickly.
"w-what do you say, M-Mr. Alesio," the old man asked.
looking nervously at the boy. Ok, what the hell is going on? The boy hummed and tapped his chin thinking about the offer, he sighed and stood up straight.
I noticed he was taller than me when Barry was attacking him earlier but I didn't realize it fully until he was standing right next to me, he tilted his head and scratched the back of his neck, and with a final huff he said
"Sure why not,"
he said it in a smooth and raspy voice a strong Italian accent making it sound deeper than it was and the only way I could describe it was elegant. I wasn’t expecting it at all
"Great, I really appreciate it, sir," I was brought out of my thoughts when the counselor called the nerd sir.
"No problem," the boy said, not caring anymore, but that's when I realized they didn't even ask me my opinion on the matter! "Hey, you can't make this choice for me!" I yelled at them angrily.
"Dante, that is because you would have refused, and I'm not giving you that option,"
the old man said with a frown
"Can I leave now?" the little nerd interrupted
"No there's one more thing I want both of you to get to know each other so that means going to each other's houses and spending time together at school," Mr. Wrally said with a frown
"Bene," the boy grumbled in Italian and sat back down on the couch, obviously wanting to leave. He pulled out his phone and waited patiently until I was done arguing with my counselor until I accepted the damned tutor.
We stood in the school's parking lot waiting for one of my drivers to come and pick me up; I glanced over at Dante and looked him over; his dirty blond hair, sculpted body, sharp jawline, big brown eyes, full lips, and his olive skin.
“I'm free tonight if you want to swing by my place,” I said to the boy across from me. He just sighed and said sure. I then noticed Benny's car coming towards us. Damn, this means Dante will find out about Benny being my brother. He pulled up next to me and rolled down his window
"hey bro I heard you had to stay after to talk with the counselor, so I thought I would be nice and pick you up," Benny said with a smirk,
I sighed "there's one problem with that Benny," I said lazily,
he raised his eyebrow and I pointed to where Dante was standing about 25 feet away
"I have to tutor him, and I invited him over to get some things over with," I muttered quietly
"yikes," Benny said
"I know right," I huffed
"Dante!" I yelled, he started walking towards me and the car, probably not noticing who was in it, he glared at me, probably for calling him by his first name.
I opened the passenger side door and got in, motioning for Dante to get in. As he got in the backseat Benny looked back at him grinning wickedly
"who would have ever thought big bad Dante who is good at everything would fail his classes" Benny taunted his grin growing wider
"What the fuck!" Dante yelled,
"Why is he picking you up, nerd!" Dante tried to get as far away from my brother as possible. I rolled my eyes,
"Maybe because he's my brother," I said tiredly, giving up on our secret "what?" the boy in the backseat mumbled,
"This Nerd... you're brother? How you look nothing alike?"
I just rolled my eyes “have you never heard of fraternal twins?” I raised my eyebrow at him and leaned against my window, wanting to go to my grotto and forget about my day.
I opened my eyes and saw that my brother had put up the partitions our father Installed so Dante didn't know where we lived. I closed my eyes and relaxed, getting mentally prepared for the party my family was hosting for me and Benny In two weeks. which means I have to get dressed formally, 'Man What a pain' I thought numbly.
