I met her today. My mate.
It all began in the morning, inside the university.
Everyone was happy because of my arrival and a huge crowd formed when I entered the gates of the university. My alpha-beta Daniel, Aiden, Sean, Matt and, their mates all were beside me. I was standing there talking with my friends about my not-so-good holidays, and that's when I smelled her. That same intoxicating scent that had been keeping me on edge for the last 3-4 days. The smell of whose trail, my wolf has been trying soo hard to find.
"Hey, Alexander, I forgot to tell you something. We have a new member in our group. Ummm... it's a human girl." Daniel said, immediately catching my attention.
"A human? Are you kidding me? Don't you know, that no human is to be involved in the group until and unless he/she is a mate of one of us." I asked utterly confused by his decision.
Normally, he was not the one to make such silly mistakes, then why did he do it now?
"Alex, I don't know this feeling yet. But I think she might be my mate. I just don't know about it. I have this strange sense of care and love towards her, but I am still not able to make sure because she is a human. If she was a werewolf it wouldn't have been so hard." He muttered looking clueless.
"Hey, Victoria! Over here!"
I faintly heard Matt yelling to someone.
"I see where you are coming from but you've got to understand that there are some procedures to everything," I said trying to make it short, while my wolf was edging me to go and find our mate.
The smell of my mate was getting incredibly close and one thing was clear now, she was studying at this University. It won't be hard to catch her anymore.
"I understand Alex, I am-" I cut off Daniel mid-sentence, with my hand, when I felt her presence near me.
Smelling the air normally, I could tell she was standing somewhere, near me.
Turning around I was utterly shocked when I saw her, the most beautiful girl in my life.
She was so dazzling that I couldn't take my eyes off of her.
Her height was ideal considering she was my mate. I think she would reach somewhere a little above my chest.
And her hairs, they were so long and looked soo smooth like silk strands.
Her eyes were an amber hazel color. She peeped a look at me and I stopped breathing then and there, shocked, not knowing what to do at this moment.
She was human!
Oh god! What do I do? I don't know what should I do? Should I go there introduce myself as her mate? But that would look too creepy, what if she rejects me thinking I am some kind of psycho.
What should I do?! I was screaming inside my mind, asking my wolf for help. But he on the other hand was a different story. He was edging on the surface ready to pounce on her and mark her his.
Which I must remind him, will be the worst nightmare of her life.
"Alpha, I mean Alexander, this is Victoria, the girl I was talking about."
"Victoria this is the main member a.k.a leader of the group Alexander." Daniel introduced us.
I was still looking at her waiting for any reaction when she nodded at me in the introduction before smiling dazzlingly at everyone. Turning around she looked at me critically before leaving.
Why did she look at me like that? Did she not like me? Was she feeling bad that I didn't say hello? Should I hug her and say hello?
My mind was in havoc now.
I looked forward and noticed, Daniel and Aiden placing their hands on her shoulders while entering the corridor and laughing along happily.
I was not a jealous kind of person. I know they were having fun just as friends but I don't know why I felt a sudden pang of jealousy hit me.
Like, I am her mate, thinking what should I do, while they who are also werewolves are befriending her without any care in the world.
'Wait! What did Daniel say? Does he have feelings for this human girl? Is she the same girl he was talking about?' I thought wide-eyed before rushing inside the building.
The next three hours were torturing as hell. My wolf wanted to go and see how our mate was doing. He even tempted me by saying that this university belongs to us and we can do anything we want.
I wanted to smack him at this one. He surely knows how to use his power.
As soon as the bell of lunch rang, I jumped up from my seat and rushed outside towards the canteen.
My group was already there. She was also there, sitting leisurely with my friends. I started moving towards her when I heard her words.
"Hey guys, I am gonna go and order myself something, do you guys want anything?" She said in her honey-laced voice.
As I started walking towards her, I saw Daniel standing ready to go with her. This made me walk faster to her side and before I could help it, I grabbed her hand.
The next thing that happened not only shocked her but me too. Electric shocks were running all over my body. And god forbid me but they felt so pleasurable. If grabbing her hand could do this to me, then what will holding her in my arms, kissing her, hugging her-.
I stopped the thoughts my wolf was implicating in my mind before I become too tempted.
"I have a few things to order too. Let's go." I said.
Nodding at me she moved towards the counter before ordering her things. I liked how she was scrunching her brows cutely in between, like a cat.
Noticing how she gazed at the chocolate milkshakes with a happy expression, I made a mental note to buy things need to make these, first thing in the evening today. So that I can offer, whenever I bring her home.
She sat at a new table when she saw her seat was occupied there, which was of course accompanied by Daniel. And me, who has turned into a jealous freak over a day, also sat there.
I don't know if it was okay for me to hate my alpha-beta like that.
I nibbled at my food, watching how Daniel was flirting with my mate in front of me. I was already having a hard time controlling it, and it didn't help when Daniel was triggering my feelings like that.
My last string of control broke when he touched her hair pulling them behind her ears and then winked at her.
My wolf unknowingly released an angry low growl of warning, shocking both me and Daniel, which made me look at my mate who was busy wiping the spilled milkshake.
I immediately stood from my seat and left, followed by Daniel.
"What was that all about alpha?" He asked me.
I don't know if I should tell him anything or not.
I couldn't tell him because I can't mark her yet.
We have heard in many movies and stories that an Alpha forces his mark on his mate and then they live happily ever after. But this was not the case here.
If our mate turns out to be a human, it was the utmost rule of our pack, formed by our ancestors 200 years ago, that no human is to be marked without his consent and full authority with him knowing all the truth about your species and presence.
I know this will put our identity to risk, if the human does not agree, and thus, we are allowed to make them drink a special potion that lets them forget about us.
And I being the Alpha king can't risk it. I can't risk being rejected by my mate. Moreover, I can't risk if the word gets out that I was rejected by my human mate. That's why, it was important for me to keep this secret, until and unless I tell her everything and rest, fate will decide.
"Nothing. I think I smelled a rogue somewhere around me." I said quickly finding an excuse.
"A rogue? Let me check with the border securities alpha. No need to worry. You can go home rest assured. Don't forget about the party after college." He said leaving me with my thoughts.
Peeping inside the canteen from the window, I looked at my mate who was eating like a hungry pup.
'How cute.' I muttered before going home to decide what to wear on this special occasion of meeting my mate.
After the college hours ended, almost everyone started to gather outside the mansion to party.
That's how things worked here. Only a few people were given liabilities to come inside the mansion and the rest enjoyed the party outside.
Most of the people partying outside were humans and elders, who couldn't care less about whether the party was being held inside or outside.
Wearing my tuxedo, I was standing on the upper staircase waiting for her.
After around half an hour of waiting, I finally smelled her.
She entered the mansion with Sean.
What was Sean doing with her? I tried to heighten my hearing amid the music and heard his words.
"So what's say? Do I still need to drop you there, beautiful?"
I heard him say and relaxed, that he was the reason why she decided to come inside. Looks like I need to praise him someday.
However, all the good thoughts about him vanished when I saw him pulling her closer to his chest while dancing on the dance floor.
Not being able to take it anymore, I started walking towards them and noticed Sean's shocked face.
What the hell was going on there?
I started walking a bit faster and immediately rushed when I saw Sean losing his grip around her, causing her to stumble.
Holding her, I felt the same goosebumps that I felt in the morning. The pleasurable thoughts started forming again.
I looked at her attire of clothes and felt myself getting aroused and jealous at the same time, that she had been showing those long milky legs to men other than me. Her body was only for me to see. Especially, when she attracted soo much attention and men towards her.
Feeling my temper losing, I looked into her eyes, which were turning from normal to shock.
"What are you doing here, dressed like this? Couldn't you wear something appropriate?" I yelled at her involuntarily.
I was shocked at my own words. I know I didn't like that she had been flashing her milky white legs to everyone, but that doesn't mean she was wearing anything inappropriate. I was about to apologize when I looked at her angry face and heard her.
"Look, Mr. Alexander, if you got a problem with my clothes, you can just turn around and go on. I was invited to this party and thus I am here. I am not interested in a party of a psychopath anyways, I was here just because Daniel invited me. And I can see, girls are wearing more fancy clothes than mine, so if you've got a problem with only my clothes, then let me phrase it, ' Go see a doctor!'' she said looking at me still angry.
I know I, the alpha king was being reprimanded in front of soo many people, but don't know why rather than feeling angry, I was feeling immensely proud of my mate.
I liked how she stood for herself and didn't take a shot even from me. I liked how she looked so bold and dominating. From start to end her eyes didn't waver even for a second, showcasing how strong she mentally was.
And was it wrong that I was feeling extremely aroused at this moment?
I was busy with my thoughts and didn't notice when she left the party.
"Alpha? Are you okay? Why did you tell her? I don't understand. Look at Lexi, she is roaming around almost in a bikini yet you shouted at Victoria even when she was wearing one of the most decent clothes. Do you know how hard it was to persuade her incoming today?" Daniel said and Sean nodded in agreement.
It was only then, did I realized I screwed big time. I looked around and saw her nowhere. She even called me a psychopath for god's sake.
My wolf was urging me to go find her because our mate was hurt because of us.
Going into the forest and quickly changing into my wolf form, I followed the trail, which was much easier to follow, now that I've seen her.
Soon, I spotted her sitting on a rock near the road inside the forest.
She was busy cursing me.
I padded slowly-slowly towards her, to not shock her, but my idea was busted because of the rustling of leaves I caused.
Looking at her shocked expression I remembered I was in my wolf form, and I can't just change back to my original form right in front of her. Thus, I didn't have any other choice than to go towards her like this only.
She was scared, I could see. Everyone would be. Still, I decided to go towards her, bowing my head in submission to let her know I don't mean any harm.
I don't know what crossed her mind, that she immediately fell on her knees and started begging me.
"Wolf bear, please don't eat me. Look I am so skinny and you are soo big. You won't be able to feed your hunger properly if you eat me. Why don't I give you an address where a party is being held? If you like vegetarian food you can eat anything from the counters and if you are non-vegetarian then you have the choice of eating soo many people. It's a good bargain, please, please spare me?" she said.
And let me tell you, this was the funniest thing I've ever heard. She was soo cute that if I was in my human form then I would've just hugged her tightly and kissed her all over the face, to tell her how cute and lovely she was.
Looking at her milky white thighs that were exposed to me, I couldn't help my wolf when he decided to lick them.
Ohh...the taste of her. It was soo mouth-watering.
Her smell was making us go haywire here. She doesn't know how much I wanted to shred her clothes and just lick every inch of her body then and there.
Thinking against the idea that it wasn't good to have those pervy thoughts about our mate, I took a deep breath in before sitting in front of her and placed my head on her lap.
This was the most as a wolf I could do to show my no-harm attitude.
Luckily she understood me and even started patting my head with her soft hands.
I can't explain, how calm and tranquil I was feeling at that moment.
Now I truly understand why my father used to always say that your biggest peace is in the arms of your mate after your mother.
I was truly at peace now.
I know I fucked up big time in my human form, but I'll try to gain her back. One thing was sure now, I can't live without her.
Now that I have tasted heaven, I won't continue to live in hell. I will make sure she belongs to me now.
