“It’s not as bad as you’re making it out to be,” Cierra protested after I explained everything that was going on and what my parents had said to me that morning.
“It’s all right for you though. You won’t be going to this garden party. You’re already taken as a Luna,” I retorted grumpily while sitting cross legged on my bed.
“Yeah, that’s true. But I could come with you for support if you fancy. I do like a good party, and besides, it may be my last one for a while with my best friend,” Cierra winked, while quietly laughing at me.
I rolled my eyes. Uhhh.
I looked at Cierra who was lying on her stomach, on my bed with her feet in the air behind her. She was flicking through an old celeb magazine that she had found on my bedroom floor and was winding one of her long blonde curls around a perfectly manicured finger. She is tall and slim like me, but she has brilliant blue eyes and long blonde hair. Her wolf is golden brown with blue eyes, and she looks stunning in both forms. It is hard to think that one day, my best friend will be Luna to the WhiteMoon Clan and married to the Alpha there.
“Anyway, you’ve got to admit, Alpha Xavier is ridiculously hot,” Cierra grinned, laughing.
“Well, if you like that sort of human, then yeah he is, but I’ve not noticed as I’ve never met him if I’m honest, and should you even be saying things like that when you have been claimed?” I quizzed, frowning at her resolutely.
I don’t want to meet him. Or anyone in his stupid Pack!!
“Well, you should meet him. You never know you. You could end up being his Fated Mate, and I can say what I like. I’m going to be mated to Matthew, so it’s not like I’m going to run off with Xavier,” Cierra shrugged, turning her attention back to the magazine.
“Whose side are you on anyway?” I retorted moodily. “And anyway, he could have anyone he wanted. Why me? The Chief Warrior’s daughter is nothing special. I’ve got no Alpha blood in me!”
“I’m on no one’s side babe. It’s fate. You and I both knew this was going to happen one day. Look at your Father and what he does. There’s no escaping your destiny,” replied Cierra as she looked back at me intently.
I arched an eyebrow at her, but deep down, I knew she was right.
Damn, why is she always so level-headed and right about everything?
I sighed and looked out the window. The street below was quiet, and there was no one around. The sun was still beating down its warm golden rays on to the neat rows of rooftops below. I fancied going out later tonight and letting my wolf out to play. A good run always helped me to see sense of tricky situations.
“What’s it like to have a Mate,” I asked her, snapping my attention back into the room.
If this was my Fate, then I bloody may as well start getting used to it.
I don’t think so!!! My wolf muttered angrily. I could feel her getting angry, but what else could I do? My hands were tied.
“Well, when you see them, you get this warm feeling all-over your body, then it turns into little electric shocks. From then on, that person is all you can think of. You feel him, and you breathe him, you live for him. All you want is him. You feel his pain and anger, his love, and his sorrows. You also open the door to be able to mind-link with him, and you will do whatever it takes to protect and care for your Mate,” Cierra gushed happily.
“So, it’s like, your Mate becomes your other half basically,” I quizzed, strangely eager to find out more.
“Basically, well no, I’d say it’s like your Mate becomes you,” Cierra replied softly before carrying on with reading the page open before her.
I never knew that finding your Mate would be this special. But I still wasn’t sure that I was ready for this kind of, closeness. I liked being a free spirit. I’ve never had a boyfriend before and I have never had any sexual encounters with a guy, so I guess you could say that I was still shiny and new. Quickly I shake my head and close my eyes as I don’t want to be thinking about sex and mating right now. A growl escapes my throat which made me snap open my eyes in shock to see Cierra looking up from the magazine and over at me with an arched eyebrow.
“I guess your wolf isn’t happy at finding a future Mate then?” she asked, finally closing the magazine, and tossing it to...
