Will they be able to do it or another hartbreak is what awaits them?
At the party
"You weren't male enough!" Those words hurt a lot. They were like stabs straight through Kurt's heart.
"I should kill you!" He said, almost out of breath. And then he would do something that would hurt even more. “I, Kurt Dolph, Alpha of the Shadow Moon Pack, reject you… Alexandra Dolph, as my mate and Luna.”
After that, only darkness.
The night couldn't be more boring. All that chatter about subjects that didn't interest me at all was extremely annoying and I just wanted an opportunity to get rid of it. At least the food was good, but the drink could be better. Or stronger.
“I'm going to get some air, Finn.” I said to my Beta, Finley Hawking, patting him on the shoulder, before walking away from the hall. He didn't answer anything, just nodded, indicating that he understood.
The double doors leading to the gardens were wide open, allowing a pleasant breeze to enter the room. I walked farther away, in order not to stay close to that werewolf pack. Males wanted to talk about politics or battles; females wanted to flirt; and there were also those who were dying to get rid of their beloved daughters and had hopes I would make one of them my future Luna. As if that was ever going to happen.
The counter was empty, for which I thanked Selene. A little peace, and… I stopped to listen better to what I thought was a moan. Yes, it was moaning, but not from pleasure. I knew I was frowning, because according to Finley, that's what I do when I'm concentrating on something or irritable. And I was irritated. I thought about ignoring the sound, but it was impossible, after all, if I was there to get away from others and relax, there was no way that could happen listening to someone whining.
“Oh, but how great!” I cursed, pushing the counter with both hands and following the sound that took away my peace.
When in human form, our senses are not as sharp, however, they are still far superior to humans and I, being an Alpha, could feel much more than others, both smells and noises.
“P-please… “ a female voice pleaded. And then, the smell of blood invaded my nostrils. I quickened my pace and there was the scene: a figure curled up on the ground, trying to protect its head with its hands and the torso with its legs, while a werewolf with blond hair kicked it and two others watched.
“What the fuck is this?” I asked and I think it was loud enough, because the three attackers jumped, with wide eyes. While the two onlookers seemed to shake with fear, the blonde seemed to relax a bit.
“Oh, Alpha Kurt” He greeted me, smiling. ”We're teaching this thieving omega a lesson.” He pointed to the creature on the ground, most likely the alleged delinquent. A female, I could finally say.
“A lesson? You were spanking her!” I retorted. “Is this how things are resolved in this pack?”
“She stole it, Alpha. And she is nothing more than the daughter of a useless werewolf”. The blonde said and when he took a step forward…
"I think you better get away from her, pup." My voice was menacing. I saw him swallow hard, but he didn't lower his head.
“I'm Gabriel Redley. You can't threaten me like that!”
“Oh, you're Gabriel, the Alpha's nephew,” I said with a smirk. “And I'm an Alpha, boy. Let's see what your uncle thinks of all this. But until then, get away from that female.”
Gabriel, despite looking like he wanted to keep acting with defiance, he knew he couldn't. I only needed to use a little Alpha aura for him to eventually relent. I used the mind-link to communicate with my Beta, asking him to find the Midnight Pack Alpha. There was a situation that needed to be resolved immediately.
‘Yes, Alpha. I'm already looking for him.’ Finley said.
I approached the omega on the floor and she backed away from me as I approached. I couldn't see her face. She kept her head down and her brown hair in a curtain. When she moved a little farther, the light from one of the streetlamps caught her and her hair gleamed. It was reddish. I didn't like females with hair that color and felt immediately repulsed by her.
“What's going on here?” Alpha Idris’s voice made me turn my head away from the omega, which I liked very much.
“This little wolf was beating up an omega. Him and his two friends.”
I said seriously, looking at the blond male, approximately forty years old, a little shorter than me. He glanced at the figure behind me and at his nephew, as well as the boy's two other cronies.
"Gabriel, what the hell?"
“She was stealing, Uncle,” Gabriel said, eyeing me sassily. “I was just teaching her the gravity of her actions.”
"What did she steal?" Idris asked, bringing his hand to his face and pinching the bridge of his nose between his thumb and forefinger.
I didn't believe it when I saw it. It was a small lump of money.
"She stole money? Your money?” I asked and looked at her. She shook her head. I looked back at Gabriel.
"She stole from someone! How could she have money?”
"Are you telling me you don't even know who this belongs to? Did you see her stealing?” I snapped, holding back from jumping on that brat.
"Gabriel, how do you know she stole it?" Idris asked. I saw that he wasn't angry with his nephew, he was just bored with having to solve that problem.
“She's an omega. How would she have money?”
"Where did you get that money from?" I crouched down and asked her.
She was shaking, but I could tell from her breathing that she was trying to speak. Gabriel started to try to say something, but I held up my hand, indicating that he should shut up.
“If you don't tell me, I can't help you.”
“I-I… It is mine. My parents…they left it to me.”
"If her parents left it to her, then it can't be hers!" Gabriel finally said and I glared at him. He was very cheeky!
“And why is that?” I questioned, using what little patience I had left.
"She is a daughter of traitors! She is an omega, daughter of a worthless! They lost everything, therefore this money is NOT hers!”
“Gabriel…” Idris started to speak and I looked at him.
“She's coming with me.” I don't even know what came over me to say something like that.
“I beg your pardon?” Idris asked, astonished. I could see in his eyes that he wasn't expecting this. Nor did I expect, in fact.
“I am completely against this type of intervention. If you don't want her, I'll take her with me.”
"Do you have a problem with that, Alpha Idris?" My pack was the biggest in the country. I'm not the monster everyone thinks I am, but I am a warrior who doesn't forgive in battle. And no one would dare challenge me. The Midnight Pack was no match for Shadow Moon.
“No, I'm not against it. Take her and do as you please.” He finally answered me.
“Shut it!” Idris snarled at his nephew and glared at me. "Take that omega, Alpha Kurt."
At the pack
“But… What do you mean we're going to take a Midnight Pack omega with us?” Finn asked me and I just shrugged as we waited for our car.
“She was suffering here and I decided it was better for her to come with us.”
“Just like that?” Finn asked, crooking his mouth at me. He was my best friend. We have been friends since a young age and I knew he would be my Beta.
“Yes, simple as that.”
Depending on my tone, Finn knew when he could and couldn't continue challenging me. At that moment, he knew he shouldn't. We waited in silence and then I heard a throat clear.
"Alpha Kurt?" an incredibly sweet voice spoke. No, not the sweet kind that would make one smile, but the cloying kind. Carla Redley, daughter of Idris. She was pretty, with blonde hair, very light blue eyes and a reasonably curvy body, but she was obnoxious and fake.
“Yes?” I asked, keeping my composure. I couldn't be rude to the gir
