“You seem to be unhappy.” Lord Alpha Sirius said, looking at me. I frowned in confusion at his statement before wrapping my arm around myself. The man looked at me, studying my expression as the two of us. walked around the empty garden, and I shook my head in question.
“I am curious about why you would think of that?” I said, choosing to be honest. I knew that it was unwise to question an elder, but I knew better than to lie without knowing what was in stake. I also knew that Dimitri was going to be waiting or listening to everything that I said, and I didn’t even need to mention my mother who would be more than a little. concerned about what I was going to be saying to the Alpha.
“I am impressed by your smart response. You did learn a lot from your mother.” He said, and I looked down at my feet, avoiding his eyes at the word mother. No mother would be treating her daughter the way that mine was treating me, and if anything, I knew that the suffering that I was living could have been stopped if she simply stood by my side rather than forced me to submit. “You are carrying your first child, and as a new mother, normally, a light glow would be in your eyes. The girl that I met when you were first introduced to the Alpha seems to have escaped you,” “I am no longer a girl, Lord Alpha. As for the light, it is my first month here and everything just seemed to happen too fast for me to process. You know, I went from being the spoiled little girl to being a responsible mate that has to tend to her home.” I knew that my lie was one that was wrong, and I knew that the man might have wanted to help me out. But right now, I knew that things would be better if I said them the way that I did. “I am just having a little hard time coping with everything, and the fact that I am not in my comfort zone alongside my pack and family is something that tears me apart.”
“Though you are aware that you are not part of the pack by blood.” He said, making me choke on my own blood. I knew that the elders knew. that I wasn’t part of my parents’ pack, but I didn’t expect to find myself being slapped in the face with that fact from the Lord Alpha. “Do not get me wrong, child, but it was necessary to wed you the Alpha to ensure that the pack does not perish when your parents pass away. And with no true. heir, we all know that the other wolves would be fighting to rule. This way, Dimitri would be the Alpha, and the child that you are carrying
would be having the Alpha blood. It was the best option that we found.”
I looked down at my feet as a number of questions played in my head. I knew that he was right with what he was saying. I was nothing but an orphan but I knew the pack more than anyone would, I grew up in it, and I was raised by the Alpha and Luna. Why would wouldn’t I be fit to be ant Alpha simply because I didn’t carry their blood?
“I understand, Lord Alpha.” I said, not bothering to look at him. It wouldn’t be making sense for me to do so, and that was something that I knew. I was just reminded, by the Lord Alpha, that I was of the lowest rank, and even worse, the one that was thrown out. It was a fate that I wouldn’t wish for my enemy, and yet, here I was, living through such moments. “It is still a lot to take in sometimes, and that is why I am trying to cope with everything that I am doing. My apologies if I delivered the wrong message.”
“It was not about delivering a message, but it is a genuine question of whether or not you are happy. If not then we can interfere from a starting point to fix the issue. You know, leaving them to deepen the way that some might do would only result in consequences that no one would like dealing with.” He said, looking at me and I nodded, knowing that he was doing what he believed was best. It pained me to see that this. was how he thought that it would be best to deal with the situation, but being an elder, I couldn’t expect any less anyway. The point of this mating was not a loving bond. It was one that ensured a certain stability, and that was something that even I needed to put in my mind when thinking of my relationship with the Alpha.
“Please do not be concerned or worried. I am happy and my mating with. the Alpha is stable. I am sure to manage and maintain the relationship between us.” I said, and he nodded in understanding. He kept his eyes on me, as if questioning whether or not I was being honest, but at this point, I couldn’t change anything.
Alpha Dimitri was going to kill me if I tried to mess anything
and I did not want to think of how my parents would be reacting if I chose to defy them by going to the Lord Alpha with my problem.
I was stuck between stone and fire with the one option of digging on the concrete floor. It either broke or broke me. But I had no other option than to submit to the fate that they threw on me. And for my child, I was going to be sure to be the woman that they all want me to be. The last thing that I wanted to risk was losing my child, and that was something. that I was sure of.
“I do hope that you are telling the truth, Aurora.” Lord Alpha Sirius said, breaking my train of thoughts. “Because if you are not, the two of us know very well that I will not be able to help you. And it would be a shame to lose such beautiful potential because you are choosing to hide something that we can solve in early stages.”
“You needn’t worry, Lord Alpha.” I said, smiling at him. My next words tearing me apart more than I could think they ever could have as I looked toward the house for a second, wondering what my fate would have been if I had ONE person defending me. “I am very happy with my mating. with Alpha Dimitri…”
