But Reid has a secret that Aria is his mate. Aria tries her best to avoid him at all cost, yet she can't help but feel drawn to him putting her life at risk. So what happens when he learns the truth and she finds out she is to be his mate, will he hand her back to her stepfather and reject her or will he fight to keep her safe from those who hunt her.
Alpha King’s Mate
Can't believe the Moon goddess my own great great great grandmother would curse her own grandson to a life of misery. Blessings are what they say mates are, mine are a curse. Before I knew how badly mates could destroy you, tear apart your soul, I craved mine. Craved finding my other half, now I know better. Mate’s are a distraction one I couldn’t afford, yet here I am still searching for my little white wolf knowing I will be damned when I finally catch her, that I will once again have to tear off another piece of my soul when I am forced to kill this one too.
Mate’s are no blessing and the Moon Goddess, well I have given up on her, my mother is a pure hybrid a direct descendant of the Moon goddess herself,making her the hybrid Queen until she handed her title to me stepping down, now I am the cursed Alpha king. My father was a werewolf so the only good thing I got out of my mother being a hybrid was being the ultimate predator, luckily I was also blessed with a wolf. My twin sisters were like my mother, just hybrid's, no wolf's no shifting, my younger brothers were like me though, tends to run in the female side the hybrid genes. I only craved blood in wolf form, my sisters craved it all the time.
My family were the only hybrids except for the mutations made by Kade a crazy scientist who was hellbent on revenge for a feud that had nothing to with us only my grandfather but that didn’t stop for trying to destroy us, he used my grandfathers blood to become immortal we thought after finally killing the bastard everything was going to be fine. Well until I found my first mate, she was a hunter and what a disaster that was. I was blinded by the mate bond and she was using me to get to my pack, my family so knowing that it ended in her death.
I won't stand for betrayal and having to kill her destroyed me. Yet now my grandmother has decided to fiddle with the Fates again and give me another dud for a mate. A second chance mate and this one has been eluding me for months now. I first spotted her a few months back when we noticed humans scouting my sister's pack, there was something off about her though, something strange. I only got a glimpse of her in wolf form but no doubt she was mine. Yet she ran from me and took off and I have been hunting her ever since.
I had a bad feeling she was helping the rogues and humans, another mate I was destined to kill. Part of me hoped I never found her, I am not sure my wolf could take another loss like that. But no matter how much I tried. I always found myself coming back to this place in search of her, some invisible pull forcing me back here. My mind consumed constantly with her white wolf.
I have lost count of the amount of times I had been to this part of the forest, not once did I ever pick up her scent. Tate, one of my sister’s mates, yes she had two not one but two mates. We weren’t expecting to find anything here, we haven't in months, she was good at evading me, yet I always felt this strong urge to come back to this spot, like something was telling me she was close.
“We have been here so many times, maybe they have moved on” Tate says as we walk through the dense forest. “Last place then we will head home” I tell him and he sighs. We stopped at the river looking up and down the stream where I first spotted her, nothing. Always fucking nothing. How was she able to escape me I didn't understand. I am the Alpha king Alpha of all Alpha's yet I can't catch one little she-wolf.
“Come let’s head back” Tate says, turning around to head the way we came.
“You go back, I will keep searching a little longer” I tell him and he nods before shifting and heading home to his mates. Deciding to go check out the caves I walk through the water coming out across the other side of the river. The only sounds that could be heard were owls high up in the trees and the crunch of rocks and twigs under my boots.
Some urge forced me in this direction, I decided to follow it for once, nothing much was out here besides caves. Moving through the dense forest I stop at the caves listening for any sounds when I hear the soft murmurs of voices in the distance. Barely audible, they sounded like they were on the other side of the mountain. I was only just able to pick up the noise as it was carried to me through the draft of the cave in front of me.
Stepping inside the cave, I could smell bat shit, and stangment water made my nose wrinkle with disgust. My eyes adjust to the darkness as my vision changes adapting to it. I followed the tunnels of the cave when it suddenly ended. The voices were a lot louder, I could almost hear what they were saying and I could smell the burning wood of a campfire as the moist logs burned, the smell of mildew covering the walls, every smell and my sensitive nose could smell it all. I look along the cave walls finding a gap between the rocks. Too narrow for me to fit through.
Walking back the way I came, I decided to go over the mountain. Racing over the rocky terrain effortlessly before jumping over the side to my feet to find another entrance. My heart skips a beat when I pick up the scent of rogues.
“She might be in there?” Brax my wolf says urging me to enter, pressing beneath my skin trying to force me forward. Though I couldn’t smell her scent, only the decaying scent of rogues and blood. I could tell one of them was injured.
Walking through the cave the voices and chatter suddenly stopped, they knew someone was in their hiding spot, my scent definitely would have wafted to them by now. I see the glow of a fire on the cave walls as I draw closer, smell the wood burning and the smell of burning flesh like they were cooking something. Turning a corner in the cave, I come across their campsite. I smile when I recognise the rogue sitting closest to me, frozen in place as he stared with his one eye wide. I had pulled his other eye out when the hunters and rogues attacked my sister’s pack, he was supposed to be my eyes and ears and let me know of any future attacks which I had no doubt would come. They wanted revenge for me killing Danika, my first mate. Her parents were high up in the hunters organisation. I had slowly been disabling them, they didn’t particularly like it when I erased her entire bloodline bar her grandfather, made her watch each of them die before I finished her off, no one betrays me not even my mate and gets to live. I show no mercy for traitors no matter who they are.
“Well what do we have here?” I ask, stepping into the small space. I see a man and a woman in the forties in one corner huddled close.
