I stood there, shocked, unable to say a word.
Did I just hear that right? The alpha has chosen me?
“And if you ever try to hit my Luna again, then me and you will be having major problems. Do you understand!” Xavier snapped across to Beta Adam.
“Yes Boss, I’m very sorry Boss,” Beta Adam replied sullenly, before looking back down towards the ground.
I looked over at Xavier, standing there in front of the window. He was breathing heavily, and his eyes were shut tightly, and he had his fists clenched. I could see that he was inhaling deeply through his nose and breathing slowly through his lips. He suddenly looked up at me, and his eyes were black. Dark like the night sky but they had a strange twinkle in them. They looked cold and eery, but warmth and longing radiated from them. He doesn’t look scary, but I suddenly feel terrified of him and what was going to happen next. I felt the hairs on my arms and neck stand up on end, and a cold shiver ran through me. I took a step back and looked around me to see that Beta Adam and my Dad are still both kneeling on the floor and looking down at the carpet.
“Everyone get out of my office. Now!” Xavier roared, making me jump but still looking at me and breathing heavily. “Everyone except you!” he pointed at me.
He looked like he was fighting a losing battle to keep his composure. His teeth were clenched, and his jawline had gone rigid.

He glanced over at me and bowed his head slightly before quickly walking towards the door and slipping into the corridor. I looked across at my Dad, who avoids my gaze and promptly followed Beta Adam without saying a word. I heard the heavy door gently shut behind me, the door clicking into place, leaving me alone in the office with the Alpha. I crossed my arms across my chest and glared at Xavier. He was looking at me like a kid does in a candy shop. His eyes were all over me, burning into my skin.
“What do you think you’re playing at?” I demanded angrily. “I bond with Tom, and I get forced in here against my will, by my Dad because you demand to see me, and then you and your wolf think you can claim me like a piece of meat?”
“Leah, please, It’s not like that. You’re were not meant to have bonded with Tom,” Xavier whispered. “There’s always been something about you. Every time I heard your name, or your Dad talked about you, my wolf would perk up his ears and beg to see you, but you never came to the Packhouse.”
Xavier continued, “My wolf has always wanted to find out more about you, but I have always denied him. Even if you did come to the Packhouse, I would have still stayed away, even though my wolf wanted to know more. Today, I thought I would give him the chance to meet you finally. I understand now why he was always so keen to meet you. He knew you were the one for him.”
“Oh, please? Your wolf may want me, but you obviously don’t. You are just giving in to your wolf. You can ha...
