“I have to admit, she did not fail to amaze me.” Lord Alpha Sirius said, looking at Aurora who blushed. “She indeed is your daughter,”
“I am not surprised.” I said, smiling at Aurora who looked at me. “She does have her taste in food, and I knew to only expect the best from her.” Aurora looked down at her plate before nodding in response as she tucked her hair behind her ear. She blushed, and it took everything in me not to roll my eyes at how easy it was for her to be fooled by words, and the funniest part about it was that she knew very well that she meant nothing to me.
“I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your meals.” She said, not looking up from her plate.
“We are enjoying it very much, Aurora.” Elder Alpha Jordan said, and Aurora smiled.
“You don’t seem to be the type to talk a lot, are you?” Lord Alpha Sirius to talk a lot, are you?” Lord Alpha Sirius asked, shaking his head at her. Our parents looked at me for a second before looking back at her, and she looked up at the Alpha and shook her head.
“I do, when spoken to, Lord Alpha.” She said, and he nodded in
“Well, if your mate would not mind, I would be honored to speak to you after dinner.” He said, making both her parents frown. Her eyes widened in surprise before she looked down at the table again. I looked at her for a second, waiting for what she was going to say before she nodded. “It would be an honor, but I do believe that it would be right of me to ask permission from my mate.” She said, looking at me. It was customary that a Luna asked her mate when something like this occurred, but I had to admit, I couldn’t help but find myself worrying about how the night. was going to end if I did allow her to go and speak to the Lord Alpha, and the thing was, even not allowing her to do so was going to end up creating a conflict and a series of questions and mumbles and that wasn’t something that I wanted to find myself dealing with.
I took a deep breath before smiling and nodding as I looked at the Lord Alpha. His eyes were fixed on me, clearly waiting for my response, and I knew better than to disobey the elders and what they wanted. It was one
thing to risk something, but it was a completely different thing to try and go against what the elders wanted.
“You know for fact that I wouldn’t tell you no about something that an elder would want,” I said, looking at Aurora. She looked at me, her eyes filled with worry as she understood the silent message that I was giving her. I didn’t need to say a word, but I knew that she was going to understand that I wasn’t going to allow any mistakes. One wrong word and not only was I going to end her before she managed to do so to me and my pack, but I was going to be sure that everyone saw it.
“Well, how about the two of us meet outside for an evening stroll. I m sure that the weather would be lovely and that we would be enjoying the evening breeze, what do you think?”
“Why would he want to speak to her?” My father asked, shaking his head. in question. I took a deep breath and clenched my first before
“If I knew, father, do you believe that I was going to be as anxious?” I asked, turning to face him. He glared at me, clearly annoyed with my response but he knew better than to think of questioning me right now. It was bad enough that I was having to deal with this, now the last thing that I needed was another series of conflicts to be dealing with when it came to a woman like Aurora, and yet, here I was, dealing with bullshit of an omega that I did not even want to be with. “Why was she chosen to be my ‘mate’ again?”
“Dimitri, we have already gone through this.” My mother said, glaring at me. I shook my head at her.
“And I never understood why. Neither one of you chose to give me at reason to why I was chosen to a weakling, orphan omega. Now, if she was an orphan Alpha, I would have understood. If she was a rogue Alpha, I would have taken it. But no, I got an omega that was thrown out for probably being a bastard, and yet, no one is bothering to explain the reason behind it.” I said, glaring at both my parents who shook their heads at me.
“It is bad enough that you are having Charlotte within the pack grounds, and God knows whether or not she has been spending her nights with you…”
“You wouldn’t expect me to be sharing a bed with an omega, would you?” I asked, glaring at my parents. Both of them shook their heads as I turned.
to look out the window.
“It explains why you are worried about what she would be telling the Alpha Lord.” Mom said, and I turned to look at her, raising an eyebrow. “How are you even sure that the child is yours? As far as I understood and heard, the girl didn’t bleed when you first touched her. She might have been carrying the child all along.”
“It could be a possibility, but I doubt that she would have the guts to do so. And if that does happen, then even better.” I said, and mom frowned. in confusion.
“What are you planning, Dimitri?” Dad asked, shaking his head in question.
“So far, nothing. But I am now very interested in what you just suggested, mother.” I said, smirking as I kept my eyes on the window. “It would, at least explain to me why she is choosing to stay quiet about Charlotte. The omega could be hiding her very own secret when she is pretending to be this sweet, innocent little girl…”
