My heart raced against my ribcage as I saw the Alpha standing in front of
His eyes were wide with both anger and rage, and I couldn’t help but find myself feeling small because of it.
The fear that I had was one that I couldn’t explain, but I knew that he saw it in my expression. His expression told me that.
“What lies are you hiding under the fucking thing that you call my child?” He asked, making my chest ache. Was he thinking that I was lying about the baby being his? Is he being serious?
“The child is yours, Alpha. I am not hiding anything.”
“You are a bad liar and I think that you know that very well.” He said, making my heart race against my chest. I took a step back and shook my head as I tried processing his words. I was yet to even rest after the long. day and here I was, dealing with this.
“I am not lying.” I said, shaking my head and the man grabbed me by my arm. He clenched his fist around my arm, and I looked down at my feet, flinching when he hurt me.
“Prove it,” he said, glaring at me. My chest ached, and tears fell from my eyes as I winced in pain. The man’s eyes were dark, filled with anger, and I couldn’t help but find myself feeling small as I looked him in the eye.
“You’re hurting me.” I said, and he looked down at his hand. He stilled for a second before loosening his bruising grip, and letting go. My chest ached, and I watched as he took a step back before walking out of the
A cry of fear escaped my lips the second that he closed the door, and I sat on the ground, trying to recompose myself. My hands shook, and I couldn’t help but find myself wrapping my arms around my body, wanting to conceal myself from this world that I was in.
My wolf, who was clearly in pain because of all this, was quieter than she normally would be and I knew that it was due to the pain that she felt like me. It was the type of pain that I wouldn’t be wishing for my enemy, and yet, here I was, dealing with it by myself.
The bedroom door was knocked twice, and I knew that it was the maids.
wanting to come and tend to their duties here. But tonight, I just wanted to be left alone. The last thing that I wanted was to see or speak to
anyone, and I knew that there was a small chance that they would end up trying to comfort me.
It wasn’t something that I wanted or needed.
I was alone and no words that they were going to tell me were going to change that. It was going to be something that I was going to have to deal with. At least, until I gave birth to my baby. When my baby was born, things would be changing, and I was hoping that they would change for the better.
“Please leave me alone tonight,” I said, stopping Mariana. I knew that this might end up giving them a hard time with Ivan, but I had to have a few hours for myself, and I knew that the beta was going to understand. “I need to be alone tonight.”
“If anyone asks you, it was me who chose to send you off.” I said, stopping her. I didn’t want her asking too many questions, and I surely did not want to end up dealing with more than I could afford. I was in both pain, and I was scared. These were two emotions that I hated to deal with, and yet, here I was, being forced to handle something that I despised.
“We will be waiting outside if you need anything, Ms. Aurora.” Mariana said, and I looked down at my lap. “It would be for the best even if you don’t want us staying inside the bedroom in case of an emergency.”
I nodded despite knowing that they couldn’t see me before laying on the ground. I curled up as my tears fell from my eyes, and I couldn’t help but find myself clenching my fist as I wrapped my hand around my arm which the Alpha had his hand wrapped around.
The way that he looked at me sickened me and I couldn’t help but find myself feeling weak. I was sure that the night went smoothly, and this was the first thing that I got the second that the guests were out of the house.
“You should have just told the Lord Alpha about what you were going through,” I muttered to myself, wiping the tears that fell from my eye as I sniffed. The cold floor under me cooled my boiling body slightly, and though I couldn’t help the tears that fell from my eyes, I knew that at
least, I wasn’t dealing with a fever that I didn’t need on my first month being pregnant.
I put my hand on my stomach before getting up from the ground. My heart throbbed, and I walked to the bathroom, ignoring the pain that I felt as my dignity and pride felt like they were being stripped away from
One part was the man that I was with, and the second was my parents. who showed no care to the fact that they had a daughter, even if I was adopted, they did raise me, who was not only scared but was also suffering more than she could describe.
I took a deep breath and put my hand on my stomach, fisting my hand as I caught sight of my reflection in the mirror.
“I promise you, baby, I am not going to let you suffer like I am.” I whispered. “I give you my word to always protect you.”
I sniffed and wiped my tears with the back of my hand.
“I promise you that mama will always keep you safe…”
