“You look beautiful,” Mariana said, making me smile.
I wore a white dress, bride-like, and though I knew that I should have been excited about today, any girl in my place would have, I found myself dreading what was to come.
“Don’t flatter yourself too much, and you, mind your limits, you are here to work and not compliment the pack’s runt.” Charlotte said, and I took a deep breath as I looked at her through the mirror. The maids took a step back, fearing the woman as she entered the room, and I couldn’t help but find myself growing flustered as I knew that she would be giving me a hard time when I didn’t need it..
It already took the maids more time than necessary to clean up the mess. that she made on the floor with the shrimp sauce, and I didn’t need to add the fact that she ruined one of my dresses with what she did.
“You are going to be sure to mind your limits and stay on your best behavior. I will not have a mess happening when the elders are here.” Charlotte said, glaring at me. The fact that she didn’t even care that the maids were here when she was throwing such insults told me that she was aiming to break me.
I looked at her for a second before looking at the maids, nodding at them, wanting them to leave, but she raised her hand, stopping them.
“I did not instruct them to leave,” she said, and I frowned. “You are going to listen, and considering that you are less than even they are, I doubt that there is a need for them to leave the room.”
“Why are you doing this, Charlotte?” I asked, shaking my head in question. “What did I ever do to you?”
“You entered and ruined my life.” She said, making my chest ache. “And I think that it is an enough reason for me to hate your guts, don’t you? Oh, yeah, a runt like yourself has no right to hate. You only obey and spread your legs on command.”
My eyes widened in surprise and I shook my head at her before my eyes welled up with tears. I had to fight them from falling, not wanting them to ruin my makeup, and catching sight of that, Charlotte laughed and shook her head at me.
“And you expect anyone to look at you when you have this fucked up personality?” She asked, making me look down at my feet as I avoided her eyes. Her words were harsher than they ever were, and I knew that considering that she knew me best, it was only a matter of time before she hit me with what hurt me most. “Your bloodline has abandoned you when you were nothing but an infant, and your parents gave you as a bride without bothering to call once.”
“I am supposed to be in my…”
“Spare me the lies.” She said, stopping me. “I am well aware that your mother warned you against backing out of the mating bond. The woman knows very well that I am in Dimitri’s life, and rather than telling you to go back home with her, she insisted that you two mate.”
“She threw you in the den and chose to leave you to rot.” She said, not caring about my plea. Her heartbeat was calm as she mocked me while. mine raced as I found my tongue getting tangled as I tried forming one.
And instead, I was just looking at the woman as if she grew a second head, and that was something that tore me apart, especially since she knew the effect that she was currently having on me.
“But you know, consider yourself lucky. At least, she chose to throw your to the Alpha of Alphas.” She said, and I shook my head, no longer wanting to hear what she was going to say.
I was supposed to be getting ready, and here I was, dealing with this
The maids looked at one another then at me, and I couldn’t help but feel like the air around me was tightening. I gulped, taking a deep breath, feeling my stomach churn, and I couldn’t help but find myself
remembering the fact that I was pregnant as my food started coming back toward my mouth.
“Your likes should be enslaved or at least sent to other omegas. But, the more you know.” She said, taking a step back. “Even an omega bloodline can find herself in the arms of an Alpha.”
She opened the bedroom door before looking at me over her shoulder. I didn’t need to look at her as she smiled. The woman had her back to me as she held the door handle, and I took a deep breath, forcing myself to
control what I was feeling.
“But I am here as a reminder to you and everyone who thinks of trying to take my place as my Alpha’s Luna.” She said, walking out the door. “Get ready, your duties are waiting, runt…”
She slammed the door shut, and that was when I rushed to the toilet, emptying my stomach. Mariana held my hair up while Jay ran her finger over my shoulder, gently massaging it. The other maids stayed back as I straightened, taking a deep breath as tears fell from my eyes.
“How am I going to compete with her?” I asked, shaking my head at the women. “You saw and heard her, the woman would not hesitate to…”
“You are going to breathe,” Mariana said, turning me to face her. My chest rose and fell with each breath, and the woman wiped my tears. “She is trying to break you and your momentum in the most important. moment of your mating.”
She wiped my tears again and looked me in the eye, this time asking m to breath like she was.
“But you are going to prove her wrong.” She said, helping me stand. “You just need to freshen up. We will tend to things here…”
