I watched as Aurora and the Lord Alpha entered the house from their stroll in the garden. And the fact that he chose to walk with her was something that I couldn’t help but try to wrap my head around; however, no matter how hard I tried to think of ONE reason that would have him do so, I couldn’t find the right answer.
The Lord Alpha’s eyes met mine for a second before I looked at Aurora who stood beside him. Her eyes met mine but she was quick to look back down at her feet, and I had to fight back shaking my head in question at Aurora as a thousand questions played in my head.
Elder Jordan was with Aurora’s mother by the time that the Lord Alpha and the omega were outside, walking around, and that was how I got my privacy with my parents considering the fact that I haven’t seen them in a month.
Aurora walked toward me, and I wrapped an arm around her. The two of us shared a glance, and I was quick to notice that she looked down at her feet, avoiding my eyes for a second before the Lord Alpha cleared his throat.
“It was nice speaking to your mate, Alpha Dimitri. She does have her way with her words, a lot like her mother, as I told her already.” He said, looking at Aurora who smiled. Her smile was one that reached her eyes, to my surprise, but I knew that it was how she was trained to act and behave. Her mother was who she was for a reason, and the number of things and events that they often held and had people over ensured that she knew how to behave.
It was one of the main reasons why I knew not to trust her. For someone who was as fake as she was couldn’t be trusted, and that was something that I knew very well.
“I am flattered by your compliment, Lord Alpha.” She said, looking down. at her feet, and the Lord Alpha smiled.
“I had my doubts about how your mating bond was going, but it seems to me, after speaking to your Luna, that the two of you are happy.” He said, and I looked at Aurora for a second before turning my attention to the man. To say that I was surprised would not be a lie, one was the fact that he actually asked, and the second that she chose to tell him that she was
happy rather than the truth. It was something that I wouldn’t have expected from her, but it seems to me that I was learning more and more from this woman by the day. And that was something that I wasn’t sure. how I felt about. One part of me knew not to trust her, and the second had its doubts about what her intentions truly were.
“I am not sure what made you doubt the two of us, but I am glad that things have been cleared by my Luna.” I said, looking down at Aurora who tensed. She did not say a word, nor did she even look at me, but I knew that if the Lord Alpha said something like this, then she must have. said something that convinced him that the two of us were happy together. My main question was why would she do that? What was she hiding with the bullshit that she just threw in?
The question of whether or not the child was mine played in my head, and I couldn’t help but wonder whether this was some kind of game to hide the fact that the baby wasn’t mine. It was a possibility that I kept in mind, but I knew that IF it was true, then Aurora would have been. digging her own grave with her own hands.
“You know that it is my duty as Lord Alpha to be checking on such cases, especially since we were the ones that chose to mate the two of you. Had she been your significant other, this was not something that I would have been concerned of, but I am well aware that you two are tending to your duties as you fulfill this mating bond, and it is my duty to take care of it.” He said, looking at the two of us. “But I believe that we should call it an evening, do you not agree? Our Alpha and Luna are still on their first stage of mating, and I think that they would want to spend a little time. together after a long day, do you not agree, Jordan?”
Elder Jordan looked at the two of us for a second before she nodded as she turned to look at my parents and Aurora’s. Aurora walked toward her mother who cupped her cheeks. The two of them shared a silent message as the woman looked her daughter in the eye, and I couldn’t help but find myself wondering what it was.
My own parents looked at me, and though I could tell that my mother was now concerned with the new news that she heard about Charlotte, I knew that she couldn’t say a word about it.
“Do take care of yourselves, and we will be repeating such gatherings more often. You know, sometimes it is best to be gathering around considering that the mating bond is one that would bring more than one pack together.” Elder Jordan said, and both Aurora and I smiled.
“You are all always more than welcome.” I said, looking at the elder who smiled. Her eyes studied Aurora’s expression for a second, and I couldn’t help but look down at the woman, watching as she stared into space. Her heartbeat was calm, and I could hear her soft breathing, but I could tell that it was because she was trying her best to think of something different than what were in. I had to admit, even I wanted to be anywhere but here, but I knew better than to hold onto false hopes.
“We will be seeing you again soon.” Aurora’s mother said, looking at the. two of us. I smiled and nodded at the woman, watching as she took a step back alongside her mate before I closed the door. The two of us were quiet as we waited for the cars to leave the Estate, and I watched as Aurora turned to walk to the bedroom.
Her hands shook as she clenched and unclenched them for a second, and I waited until I was sure that no one could hear us before following her toward her bedroom. I knew that Charlotte would be coming in a few minutes, but I did not intend on letting what happened tonight slide. If anything, I knew better than to trust anyone, especially not someone like her, that just entered my pack.
“Care to tell me what kind of fucked up game you are playing. Aurora?” I asked, and she frowned in confusion as she saw me entering her room. “And don’t you fucking tell me that you went ahead and told the Lord Alpha that you were happy with me for no fucking reason…
