"I can't deal with your games anymore. Tell me the truth about Caroline," I asked. To my surprise, Aiden's reaction was nothing like I expected. His face contorted with a cold, bitter laugh. "Oh, please. You think you're worth my time? You're just a nobody, and I'm not going to make our thing public. You're just a convenient little toy for me to use," I took a deep breath, mustering all the strength I had left, and decided to play it cool. I needed to catch him off guard and show him that I was not going to be just another pawn in his twisted games. "Is that how you see me, Aiden? Just a damn toy? Well, I've had enough of your games," Aiden looked taken aback, clearly not expecting this reaction from me. I could see the anger and frustration in his eyes, but I refused to back down. "I reject you as my mate, Aiden," I continued, my voice firm and resolute. *** In a world of werewolves and secrets, Leah conceals her pregnancy from everyone, even her mate, the popular and handsome Aiden. When she discovers her true mate is Ian, the heir to the powerful Silver Pack, their lives entwine in unexpected ways. Aiden's betrayal, Clara's support, and a three-year absence shape Leah's strength as a single mother. As Ian reenters her life, can he prove himself worthy of her love, and will their bond survive the challenges of pack politics and lingering secrets?
CHAPTER 1 Pain
I couldn't let anyone know about my secret.
The nausea was getting worse, and I could feel the color draining from my face. I clenched my fists, trying to contain the waves of pain that were washing over me.
I tried to focus on the teacher's lecture, but my mind kept drifting back to Aiden. I knew that I was way over my head, but I couldn't help it.
I prayed that nobody would notice, but my classmate, Jessica, leaned over and whispered,
"Are you okay? You look really pale."
I forced a smile, but it felt like a grimace. "I'm fine. Just a little queasy."
Her eyes widened in concern. "Do you need to go to the nurse?"
I shook my head, even as my stomach heaved again.
As I walked down the hallway, my heart pounding in my chest, I tried to keep my expression neutral. But inside, I was a mess.
The thoughts swirling in my head were like a hurricane, threatening to tear me apart. How did I let myself fall for Aiden? It was so foolish, so reckless. But now I had to face the consequences.
As I walked, I tried to focus on putting one foot in front of the other, but it was like trying to walk through quicksand.
When I walked into the teacher's office, trying to keep my face expressionless, I felt a sense of despair wash over me. How did I get myself into this mess? It all started when I first laid eyes on Aiden. I had heard rumors about him, of course - that he was handsome, rich, and athletic. But seeing him in person was like a punch to the gut.
"Excuse me, Ms. Collins?" I said, my voice trembling slightly.
"Yes, Leah, what can I do for you?" Ms. Collins asked, her eyes filled with concern.
"I was wondering if I could leave school early today," I said, my voice barely above a whisper.
"Of course, dear. Is everything alright?" Ms. Collins asked, her brow furrowed with worry.
I hesitated, unsure of what to say. I didn't want to lie, but I also didn't want to tell her the truth.
I could feel the tension building inside me, like a pressure cooker about to burst. Finally, I said, "Yes, Ms Collins. I just need to take care of some personal matters." I said hoping she won't ask further questions.
Ms. Collins nodded, but I could tell she wasn't convinced.
"Is there anything I can do to help?" she asked, her voice gentle and caring.
I shook my head, feeling the weight of my situation pressing down on me.
"No, thank you. I'll be fine," I said, hoping I sounded more convincing than I felt.
Ms. Collins hesitated, then said, "Well, I hope everything is alright. If you need anything at all, just let me know. I'm always here to help."
I smiled and managed to say, "Thank you, Ms. Collins. I appreciate that."
I could feel Ms. Collins' eyes on my back, full of concern. I tried to walk with confidence, even though inside I felt like a jumble of nerves.
As I stepped out of the office, I let out a breath I hadn't realized I'd been holding, and I felt a wave of exhaustion wash over me. I just wanted to go home and crawl into bed, to escape from the world for a little while. But I knew I couldn't.
I had responsibilities to take care of, things that couldn't wait. I tried to push away the exhaustion and focus on the task at hand. But the heaviness of my burden was hard to ignore.
I felt a heaviness in my steps when I walked down the hall as if my feet were weighted down by an invisible force.
My head felt foggy, and my thoughts were jumbled. I tried to focus on the task at hand, but it was hard to concentrate.
All I wanted was to be alone, to have some time to myself. But I knew that wasn't an option.
I reached my locker and fumbled with the combination, my fingers clumsy and uncoordinated.
I finally got the door open and grabbed my books, feeling the weight of them in my arms.
As I made my way to class, I tried to hold my head high and put on a brave face.
But inside, I felt like a bundle of frayed nerves, ready to snap at any moment. I just wanted to get through the day, to get through each moment until I could finally go home.
I knew that even at home, there would be no respite. The problems that awaited me there were just as daunting as the ones I faced at school.
The bell rang, and I took a deep breath, bracing myself for the upcoming class.
I sat down in my seat and tried to focus on the teacher's words, but they sounded muffled and distant.
My mind was filled with thoughts and worries, and I couldn't seem to shake them. The teacher's voice became a blur, and all I could hear was the pounding of my heart in my ears.
I tried to still my racing thoughts, to bring myself back to the present moment. But it was like trying to hold back a tsunami with a sandcastle.
"Leah?" the teacher's voice broke through the haze. "Are you with us?"
I looked up, my face flushing with embarrassment. "Sorry, I was... um... just lost in thought," I stammered, my voice trembling.
The teacher gave me a concerned look. "Are you feeling okay? You look a little pale."
I forced a smile. "I'm fine, really. Just a little tired, that's all."
The teacher nodded, but I could tell she wasn't convinced. "Well, just take it easy, okay? If you need to take a break, just let me know."
I nodded, and the teacher went back to her lecture. But I could feel her eyes on me, watching me closely. I tried to pay attention, but my mind kept wandering.
Finally, the bell rang, and I hurried out of the classroom, desperate to escape the feeling of being watched and scrutinized.
CHAPTER 2 Mate
I got home and slumped on my bed.
Phewww… what a day.
I sighed as I looked at the sealing. My mind went to how I got myself into all this…
When I turned 18, I felt like I was on top of the world. I thought my life was about to change for the better when the Moon Goddess blessed me with the identity of my mate.
I was sure I'd be paired with someone just as naive and new to the world as I was. But then I learned my mate was Aiden, a guy known for his looks and his popularity.
Everyone at school was crazy about him. I felt like the luckiest girl alive when he agreed to be my mate, but I didn't realize I was falling for a playboy.
I remember that day so well...
As the rain tapped gently on the café window, I found myself sitting across from Aiden, my heart pounding in my chest.
I had asked Aiden to meet me there, but now that he was sitting in front of me, I couldn't find the right words.
