“Dimitri, at least allow me to explain why I chose not to tell you when things…”
“I am not going to give chances to someone who not only hid something as sensitive from me, but someone who also chose to want to try lying. about it when I asked.” I said, stopping Charlotte. She looked down at her feet, avoiding my eyes, and I shook my head at her. “You choose to lie to me about something like this and it is only a matter of time before more lies emerge to the surface.”
“Dimitri, you know that I wouldn’t have lied to you if I didn’t have to. But this is a situation that I know that you don’t approve of. I try to think of a right way to talk to you about it, and there rarely ever is one.” She said, and I chuckled, shaking my head at her.
“And the right method to approach the situation is not only to hide. things, but to lie. Had no one told me about this, I wouldn’t have found out from you? As my fucking lover, and as the woman that I am fighting to be with; you choose to repay me with lies?” I asked, glaring at her. She clenched and unclenched her fists, trying to control her own emotions, but I waited for her response as I kept my eyes on her. The anger that I felt was one that I couldn’t describe, and I knew that she saw it in my eyes, and that was something that she feared more than anything,
“Dimitri, I would have told you if it was another situations. But you know how my father is and the last thing that I wanted was to cause a problem right now.” She said, taking a step toward me. “You know that we are going through a lot, and my father does not come and leave without a fuss, and that is not one that I wanted us to deal with. It is one that I am always afraid of, and you of all people should know that, Dimitri.”
“You should have thought of a better excuse to give me considering that you were going to choose to hide things in the first place.” I said, glaring Her eyes dropped to the ground and tears fell from them. I shook my head and took a step back. “I don’t want to see you by my side until you are called.”
at my woman
“Dimitri, this is not going to be solving anything between us. You are just going to run away from…”
“I said a fucking word, and unless you want me to make sure that you not
only regret speaking to the man, but also choosing to be with me in the first place, I do suggest that you follow my order.” I said, and she gulped. “I don’t want to break your heart; therefore, do not force me to do so over something that you not only knew that I didn’t approve of, but something that you lied about.”
She took a deep breath, and walked toward me instead of turning to leave. Her next words had me letting out a low growl that she shied from, but I knew that the growl was one of warning, one that she not only needed to get, but one that she was going to remember for a long while. right now.
“I want you to think of how I felt when you chose to fuck that woman that you are pretending to be mates with.” She said, and I glared at her. “While I was out there kicking my father out, the two of you were in here, playing the loving couple. Something that you never dared do with me, you know, all you saw me was a consort for your bed anyway. So, I was. never really an important factor for you to value the way that you are trying to do with her.”
She walked out of the room without saying another word, and I shook my head as I clenched my fist, glaring at the door as she closed it. Her heart raced, and I could tell that she was more than a little scared of how I was going to react to what she said. She was afraid that I was going to end up yelling at her, but that wasn’t something that I was going to do. This time, she was going to get a punishment that was far worse than my
It was going to be my silence.
And I was going to make sure that she feels it…
“Did she eat?” I asked, glaring at Mariana, one of Aurora’s maids as she stood outside the bedroom door.
The last thing that I needed was to deal with her attitude, and here I was, dealing with a weak omega that was not only carrying my child, but also not properly taking care of the baby.
“Yes, Alpha. She ate a while ago, and we gave her milk to drink to ensure the bones of the child.” She said, and I walked inside the bedroom. Aurora, who was sitting on the window-sill, looking outside, frowned when she turned to see me. She put the glass of milk on the dresser, and wrapped the blanket that she initially had on her lap around her body, covering her bare legs as she wore a short dress.
“Can you please knock on the door as I may not be decent at times?” She asked, looking down at her feet, avoiding my eyes.
“You are sitting on the window-sill.”
“It is a habit that I have always had as a child. I would sit on it, and just look out the window.” She said, looking at me. “It is big enough to have cushions, I think that I can sit on it.”
“What are you looking at?” I asked, growing somewhat curious about what she was having in mind. She took a step back, allowing me to look out the window, and I nodded as I saw that it was the garden. Her bedroom was the one next to mine, and I knew that we had the same view. I was just curious on whether she was watching something in. particular.
“I fancy watching the sky and stars at night. They have their own. serenity, and I admire them.” She said, and I nodded in understanding. “Is there anything that you need any help with, Alpha?”
“Yes,” I said, and she frowned in confusion as I turned to face her. “You are going to help me with my bath. I believe that you can tend to that as my ‘mate””
“And Charlotte?” She asked, shaking her head in question. “My apologies. for asking, but I believe that you have your woman in your life…?”
“You are to do as told, and I doubt that Charlotte is going to be of any bother to you. Alpha’s command.”
“I am not a consort, Alpha Dimitri.” She said, avoiding my eyes. “My apologies, but I cannot risk getting in trouble with your first woman, no matter what her position is.”
“Are you defying your Alpha?”
“I am not…”
“Then you are going to be in my bedroom within ten minutes. Otherwise, you can deal with the elders that you think would be defending you.” I said, and Aurora frowned in confusion, trying to process my words. “I will be waiting, because you are going to prepare the bath and would be joining me. You have ten minutes to get what you need for that job…”
