Lucas was sitting on the rooftop of the main state building where he worked in the city that was ruled by his pack. He was looking over the city that was ruled by werewolves just like how the world was for the past few decades. The world had changed now. Werewolves ruled as the stronger citizens but humans were still allowed to live amongst werewolves but they didnt get much say in what went on. They followed the rules. They did as they were told by werewolves and it wasn’t going to end badly. It was that simple but not always. As the beta of his pack he tried to protect them when he could. The city was big. He couldnt be in so many places at once. It was impossible. He was only seventeen years old. He had so much responsibility on his shoulders. His alpha was eighteen. He had defeated his father on his eighteenth birthday and had sent him away to the district where retirements happened. That was how it was in their hierarchy. The next generation always was more powerful than the previous one.
Their district down south, was a peaceful one. They had a good economy. His Alpha was an all American powerful ruler. Lucas knew Alpha Gavin from childhood. They always went to each other’s house. They were close friends. But their friendship was tested when Gavin’s sister Gillian had fallen for him. Eversince childhood they were close since they were in the same year in school. Lucas had never realised how much Gillian loved him. He could never guess. But she did. He was the only one who could calm her down when she was in a fit of rage. He was the only one who could say the right words at the right time to her. She was an alpha wolf and much more powerful than him like her brother.
When Gilian had started holding his hands to walk with him to school he had ignored it. They were just friends. That was how it looked to him. When she had beaten up the girls who fancied him, he didnt think it was jealousy. He had though she had looked out for him because the girls were annoying. He was quite popular in school. Every girl wanted him to take them to the prom that was in a week. But he didn’t care for any of that. He wanted to take Kelly Anne. He had walked to ask Kelly Anne to the dance but Gillian had stepped in front of him asking him to the prom to his shock. That was a month ago. It had been a month that his dreams of settling with kelly Anne had been dashed. One long month. He had hoped that Gavin was going to go all alpha on him for saying yes to his sister. As if he had another choice? You didnt refuse an alpha wolf anything unless you were mental.
Lucas sighed. Alpha’s reaction was unbelievable. Gavin was happy to see Gillian with Lucas. It seemed like Gavin didn’t mind at all. He was proud of his sister for being able to land Lucas. After all Lucas was of a worthy stock according to Gavin. He was of a powerful bloodline. Not as powerful as Gavin’s but quite powerful. A powerful werewolf had a power aura and the force of their power could make people feel the force to submit and kneel. The alpha’s power was greatest but the beta’s came second. Lucas’s aura was strong and attractive according to many girls.
Lucas felt saddened as he looked at the tower block were Kelly Anne lived. Mostly humans lived there. But kelly Anne lived there too because she was a protector werewolf. She protected those who needed protecting. She could be a fighter wolf but she had opted for protector status. She was who she was. A woman of great calling who worked with her healer friends mostly. He loved Kelly Anne more than anything in this world. But kelly Anne didnt even notice him. She saw him as one of the cocky kids in school always. He was hanging out with Gavin and Gillian. She never wanted to be near their group. Kelly Anne never came to watch him play games. She never came to watch him wrestle. But he always went to see her doing spoerts. But she hardly ever glanced at him. She hardly ever glanced at any guys. She didn’t like men much. Her father was an abusive wolf who used to beat her mother alot. Kelly Anne used to be in a different pack and had now moved here. She was taken away into care in a family here who had been her adoptive parents for the past year.
Kelly Anne was new to this city. She was from th country side. That was why authorities hadnt been able to take her into care. Kelly Anne’s father had gotten away for so long. But in the city there was no where to hide. Kelly Anne was happy now but she didnt fit in with most kids. Her best friends were humans. She didn’t mix with werewolves much even though she was welcome to. Her hostility and rejection of male wolves hadnt gone down well. Some high rank wolves at school wanted to teach her a lesson so she learnt to worship them rather than be so nice to unworthy humans and low omegas. She had turned down so many guys who wanted to date her when she had arrived at the pack in her first weeks. They had taken Kelly Anne to a quiet room and wanted to torture her. But Lucas had broken them up and had put his foot down that Kelly Anne was off limits because she was of a protector rank. It was her job to protect humans and weakest omegas of the pack. They had never bothered Kelly Anne again and the word spread that Kelly Anne was off limits. Lucas was the beta. What he said went. Kelly Anne had said thank you and had smiled. She had even kissed him on the cheek. That was the only time she ever touched him.
Lucas heard Gavin from behind him “What are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be picking my sister up for the City Diner Walk.
Lucas just remembered. That night they were going to have drinks in different diners and moved on to another diner. That was how they were going to explore the city on that friday night. Lucas turned “I just felt like looking at the city lights. Sorry alpha.”
Gavin smiled “Dont worry. I forgive you. My sister is the one you should answer to. She told you to pick her up early so she could go downtown for ice cream with you first.”
Lucas walked to alpha gavin “I will make it upto Gillian. I promise.”
Gavin put his hand on his shoulder “You make sure she has a good time. I know you wont let me down. She talked about you all these past weeks because of this prom. Its good you said yes or she could be very upset. i dont like to see my sister upset Lucas. Do you understand that?”
Lucas looked away and showed his neck to his alpha as he felt the force. His alpha’s eyes changed colour to red when he felt too passionate or strong about any matter. Lucas sucked in a breath and spoke slowly “Yes, alpha.”
Gavin relaxed and made his force retreat which gave lucas the signal to look up into his alphas eyes again “Very well. I am glad you do. I would hate to show you my angry side, Lucas. You are like my brother.”
Lucas smiled sadly. It was true. They were quite close. They were like brothers. Too bad Gillian had suddenly declared she wanted him and now Gillian was the one standing between him and Kelly Anne.
Gavin said “Lets go. Its time to hit the road with our chevrolets.”
Lucas followed his alpha and went down with the elevator to the lobby. His heart started beating fast as he felt she was close. kelly Anne was near by. But why was she there at the main state building.
As Gavin got off the elevator, Lucas followed.
Lucas took in the scene in front of him. Kelly Anne was in the lobby with some files in her hand looking straight at the alpha. But she didnt speak before being addressed. Lucas was worrid. She made eye contact too long with the alpha. Gavin wasn’t going to let that go easily.
Gavin narrowed his eyes “What is it?”
To Lucas’s relief, Kelly Anne looked down as she spoke. She almost pushed it beyond the boundry by holding Gavin’s gaze too long. “I am here to ask if I can speak to one of the enforcers who has raised the rent on council states including our tower block. Humans and omegas are struggling to pay.
Gavin said “Are you struggling to pay? Is the wage given to you not enough?”
Kelly Anne shook her head “No. I am fine.”
Gavin said “Let omegas and humans struggle then. Whats is your problem? You waste my time, I will waste yours Kelly Anne. I am putting you on drinks duty at the central bar tonight. You are serving drinks and be nice to the guys. That is the last stop for the drinks tonight and we are all there from high ranks partying till 5am. Do you think you can manage the duty. if you fall asleep you will be sorry. Do you understand?”
Kelly Anne cringed but under the force of alpha she couldnt object. She showed her neck and looked down “Yes, Alpha.” She hated the alpha’s power over her. The alpha didnt even need to exercise the power he had. Everyone followed him. His genes were too strong. His district’s economy was booming. He lead the district well. The party times were well deserved for his hard working team but Kelly Anne couldnt understand why the alpha took away so much from the weaker classes. He rasied their taxes and rent for no reason. he wanted them to always be in need. He didnt like the weak. He wanted to break them and she didn’t know why. She was going to make it her mission to be the change.
