Jordan is my boyfriend, and we have the same birth date. Funny, huh? Tomorrow, we’ll both be meeting our mates, given to us by the moon goddess, and he doesn’t seem thrilled about it.
“Nala, I always knew you were not happy with our relationship.”. He says, visibly angry.
“What is wrong with you, Jordan?,”, I ask. “Of course, I am not happy to leave you, neither am I excited, but who wouldn’t want to meet his or her mate?. You are being unreasonable.”. I hiss and leave him standing there.
I get home that night, sit on my bed and can’t help but wonder what is wrong with Jordan today. I am happy to meet my mate, though. I sleep early, and can’t wait for morning to come.
I wake up the next morning and go about my usual routine. When I am done, I wear a short, flared gown and sandals. I also apply little makeup on my face and let my hair down.
I run down the stairs and my mum shouts, “Nala, come here!”. Gosh! I don’t want her to waste my time, as I really need to go find my mate. I get to where she is standing, and she suddenly pulls me into a tight hug.
“Happy birthday honey, I love you.”, she says, kissing me on the cheek and handing me a parcel. I smile and kiss her on both cheeks.
“I love you too, mum. Thanks.”. I say, simultaneously putting the parcel in my bag and running to school.
I only have my mom because my dad left a few years ago. He was human, and when my mom found him, their relationship was just like a human relationship. They dated and my mom fell pregnant with me. She then told him who she really was, and he said he could not live with a monster. So, he left while she was pregnant with me, and my mom is not one of the lucky wolves that get a second chance at finding a mate.
On getting to school, I search for Jordan, with the aim of settling our dispute. I suddenly hear my wolf move inside me. “Mate.”, she says, and I grin widely. I look around, and my gaze lands on Jordan. “Oh my ! he is my mate. Could this day be any better?”, I think and move towards him, smiling. I am met with a frown of obvious irritation, creasing his forehead.
“Don’t tell me you are still annoyed about yesterday.”, I say.
“I, Jordan Right, reject you, Nala Price, as my mate.”. He says bitterly.
I wasn’t expecting that. I actually thought he was going to be happy.
“What’s wrong with Jordan?”, I can’t stop myself from asking as tears threaten to fall. I feel broken, and cry as I go to my first class.
During lunch, I sit with my friends, Dash, Willow, Kieran, and Sheldon at our usual table. They all have already found their mates. Yeah, my friends are older than I am. Willow smiles, looking at me, “have you found your mate yet?”, she asks, and I nod.
“Oh my goodness!”, they all exclaim happily.
“But he rejected me.”. I chip in, and their smiles fade slowly.
“Who is he?” Dash asks, and I don’t answer. I turn to see Jordan with Daisy, the bitch of our pack, beside him, and I immediately feel my wolf block me out.
“Jordan.”, Sheldon mutters angrily.
“B-b-ut you guys were dating, so why would he reject you?”, Kieran says, and I stand up. It is too much to take in. I run out of the school, to my home, and race to my room.
My mum peeps through the slightly open door of my room. “What’s wrong, honey?”, she asks, looking really worried.
“Nothing, mom. I just don’t think I want to go to school anymore”.
“Oh…..honey,” she says, entering my room.
“Nala, what exactly is the problem? you know you can tell me anything.”, she says, visibly worried.
“I met my mate today, Mum.”. I say, smiling.
Her face lit with a smile. “Nala, I am so happy. You will be finally happy, unlike me. I………”.
“Mum, he rejected me.”, I said, cutting her short, with tears cascading down my cheeks.
“Oh.”, she says sadly. Then she hugs me in order to comfort me, and I continue to cry on her shoulders.
