"I'm mated to you, Asher," I whispered, hoping for his acceptance. "No, you're mated to yourself because I can never be with someone like you," Asher replied coldly. "I, Asher, hereby reject you as my mate." Confusion and heartache consumed me as I stared at him, my voice trembling. "Why are you saying all of this to me?" "Because, Lenora, I can't be your mate. I regret accepting to be your boyfriend in the first place; it was merely out of pity," he declared, devoid of emotion. Tears welled in my eyes as his words cut through me. "I've never loved you, Lenora. I thought you would grow stronger, but you're still the weakest wolf I've ever encountered, even at seventeen." Lenora Hunter, marked as the weakest wolf in the Serene pack, had never let that define her until she faced rejection from Asher, her only hope. Meanwhile, the presence of Alaric, the New Alpha, struck fear into the hearts of wolves far and wide. He was a dreadful and elusive figure, known but rarely seen. Alaric's arrival in the Serene pack, with intentions unknown, only added to the turmoil. Would Lenora, as the weakest wolf, survive the clutches of this ferocious predator? Could she be an exception to his malevolent ways?
"Are you okay?" Ariel's voice interrupted me as I quickly nodded my head. I had been lost in my thoughts and didn't even realize I had arrived at school yet. Today is my birthday and the day I would get to meet my mate but I was feeling nervous about it.
"You're thinking about Asher aren't you?" She asked with a cocked brow as her grey eyes stared deeply into my soul. It mostly amuses me on how quickly she could read my emotions but then she's my oldest friend after all and also the sister to Asher who happens to be my boyfriend.
"Maybe" I answered in a low tone.
"Snap out of it okay, today's your day and I'm not going to let some random dude ruin it for you, if he happens to be your mate so be it and if not then you're one lucky girl" she waved her arms in a dramatic way.
I really couldn't put down the fact that she hated Asher even though he was her biological brother but she claims he's a jerk. She got upset the moment she found out I loved him and almost killed me when she found out that I confessed my feelings to him and proposed a relationship. I guess love could really fuck me up sometimes.
"You do realize he's your brother right?" I teased with a smirk.
"Unfortunately, the moon goddess wasn't being fair" she pouted and I couldn't help but let out a smile as we both left the classroom for the cafeteria.
"I'll leave you to it, I really don't want to be around when he happens to be your mate and y'all do all of those icky stuff so we'll meet after school today and I'll take you on a treat since it's your birthday" she gave me a small punch on my back before walking to the opposite direction as she wiggled her tiny backside in an attempt to make me laugh.
On walking to the cafeteria, different thoughts kept on roaming in my head and I couldn't stop the small smile from finding its way on my lips when I thought of how happy he would be with me. The only thing I might be concerned about is being the future Luna if we mated. Hell, I couldn't even face my class, not to mention talking to the whole pack.
My heart kept racing the closer I got to the cafeteria and I started to perceive a really strong smell, my inner wolf started to purr and jump in happiness and in no time my senses were intensified and my thoughts were clouded, all I could think of was meeting the person already.
I entered the room to meet Asher sitting on his usual desk, the smell grew stronger the closer I got to him and this day couldn't get any better for me to find out my mate is actually my boyfriend.
"Asher!" I squeaked in excitement as I wrapped my arms around him but he didn't respond like he used to nor did he hug me back. I slowly pulled away from the hug in an attempt to figure out what was wrong.
"Asher, it's my birthday!" I smiled as I looked deep into his dark grey eyes, similar to those of Ariel.
"I know, happy birthday!" He coldly replied and I knew something was wrong. I took a few steps back because I didn't want to be affected by his attitude. Perhaps he'll be happy when he knows I'm mated to him.
"I have good news," I said in enthusiasm but there wasn't still any emotion on his face as he stared at me with a blank expression.
"Let's save it for later" he abruptly said and pushed the tray of food on his desks as he stood up from his seat.
"Asher!" I yelled his name because I was getting anxious, at least I deserve to know what was the cause of his sudden behavior on my birthday. Calling out his name worked because he stopped on his tracks as he tucked his hands in his pocket bringing out his manly figure which I still couldn't get out of my head.
I walked up to him and circled to meet his face, his chiseled jaws were clenched and there was disgust clearly written all over his face.
"You're acting weird Asher" I complained but he immediately scoffed.
"Maybe you're the one thinking weirdly" he responded with a smirk and I felt my heart breaking. He has never spoken to me this way before so why now?
"I'm mated to you Asher"
"No, you're mated to yourself because I can never be with someone like you, I, Asher, hereby reject you as my mate" he said with lack of emotion.
I could feel the painful sting in my chest the moment he said those words and not only was I hurt but my wolf was wounded and traumatized. Never had I thought I would be easily rejected by someone I spent two whole years loving. His voice came out loud and other students were attracted to our discussion whereas most of them began to laugh at me already.
"Why are you saying all of these to me?" My voice broke as I stared at him in dismay.
"Because I clearly can't be your mate Lenora, I regretted ever accepting to be your boyfriend at first because I felt I needed to pity you."
"I've never loved you Lenora, I thought you'd be stronger since you were only fifteen but now you're seventeen and still the weakest wolf I've ever come across"
"You're literally the worst wolf in Serene high school, you're the weakest and you think I'll ever want you as a mate? Come to think of it, I'll be the next Alpha and I need a strong Luna not a weakling like you" he outrageously said and at this point I couldn't comprehend what was happening because it was happening too fast.
"I'm sorry" I apologized as I blinked my eyes rapidly in an attempt to stop the tears from flowing. A part of me wished he would call it a joke and hug me tight but my hopes were shattered the moment he walked past me. I couldn't stop the tears from falling anymore as I ran out of the cafeteria with tons of students mocking and laughing at me.
I had a bad feeling about this day and my instincts were right because it's the worst birthday of my life. Screw the fact that I came from an important part of the pack where we get to meet our mates a year earlier, perhaps if I turned eighteen I wouldn't be this hurt.
I wanted to run home but I couldn't because that would be against the rules and I might be severely punished by the school's wolf mistress so I ran to the library instead because no one in this school ever uses the library.
I couldn't blame him for all he said because I was truly a weakling after all, my family treated me like an outcast and favoured my sister more because she was tougher and stronger while I was just this stupid girl who goes around confessing her love to people. I never wanted this life for myself but unfortunately that was how the moon goddess created me and now I wish I didn't exist.
"What the hell happened?" The library door banged open as an angry tall girl rushed into the library with a fierce look on her face. I immediately wiped the tears off my eyes because the last thing I would want right now is another drama between her and her brother.
"He rejected and insulted you?!" She yelled and I could see her eyes changing its colour. She was really upset about it and I was glad she cared about me but her shifting into her wolf form for war wouldn't solve any issue.
"It's fine Ariel, just chill" I tried to feign a smile to assure her that I was okay but she wasn't buying it, I wouldn't buy it if I was the one too.
"Don't fucking tell me to calm down because that bastard needs to be taught a lesson!" She roared as she flipped the table beside her causing me to flinch. She could be really aggressive whenever she's angry.
"I'm okay with it Ariel, snap out of it. It's my business not yours so just drop it already" I yelled at her and almost regretted yelling but I wasn't in my right state of mind after I was rejected, I was starting to transfer the aggression to her. Who knew a rejection could hurt this much.
"Of course, it's your shit to deal with anyway!" She angrily stormed out of the library and I buried my head on the desk. Just great, I got rejected today and somehow managed to make my best friend upset even though all she was doing was looking out for me.
I patiently waited for the school day to be over as I cried my heart out in the library. The bell finally rang and I carried my backpack to leave for my house, not caring if my eyes were swollen like I received a blow on it. I wouldn't feel any better at my house because my mother would definitely blame me for being rejected but I just had to leave this school immediately.
Everyone in the hallway was talking about how Asher rejected me and it would have been better if they weren't pointing at me or laughing at me right in front of me. I managed to get out of the building but my eyes couldn't help but notice the horrifying image in front of me.
My sister, Tala and Asher were making out right in front of me, the image of her tongue sticking into his mouth broke me but the fact that my sister noticed I was staring and proceeded to deepen the kiss with a smirk shattered my heart. I knew she hated me but I had never imagined she would be the reason why Asher would reject me.
I literally had nowhere to go because the last place I would want to be is in the same house with her and my unsupportive parents. I would have wanted to apologise to Ariel and sleep over at her place but then Asher lived in the same place with her. I guess my only option is to sleep at the rogue's hostel.
The rogue's hostel wasn't the best place for a female student to be found but I went there regardless of the harm that could happen to me. Luckily nothing happened and I soon found myself laying flat on the bed as the sun rays shone brightly on me.
The thoughts of me going back to school weakened me because I wasn't sure if I wanted to return back there or be around either Asher or Tala. The rogues were surely going to go to school according to the new rule and no one was to be left behind at the hostel.
I carried my backpack as I walked out of the hostel room not caring about taking a shower or fixing my messy hair. I could feel some eyes staring at me and probably laughing but I couldn't care more about them. My life was technically ruined already.
"Assemble!" A man's gruff voice commanded and I assumed he must have been the master around here. In no time everyone lined up in an orderly manner, well everyone but me because I didn't feel the need to line up with the rogues.
His eyes fell on me and a scornful look appeared on his face, "who the hell do you think you are for ignoring my command" he roared as he walked up to me with a whip in his hands. My heart started to race really fast the more he appeared to be closer because not only was his voice filled with threats but his face was dreadful with the long scar that passed through the two ends of his face.
I tried to say something but my mouth wouldn't cooperate, I wasn't a rogue and my parents were really popular in the pack because we were natural hunters but then I couldn't blame him for not knowing who I was because they've always hidden me like I wasn't a child.
He twirled the really thick whip in his hands and I tightly closed my eyes as the whip was about to land on my skin but then after some few seconds nothing happened and I didn't feel any pain on my skin.
I opened my eyes to see a hand holding the whip, I raised my head up to look at the tall figure holding the whip but I wasn't able to see his face because they were covered with a hoodie and a bandana around his nose.
"Who the hell do you think you are!" The master was getting annoyed as his eyes immediately changed its colour, one could tell he was down for a fight.
Without saying any words the boy who saved me released his hands from the whip and walked back to where he was lined up. I looked at the Master's face and was astonished because after the boy released his hands from his whip he became heavenly scared and it was really easy to sniff out his fear. Who could he be?
Everyone soon entered the long coaster bus that was going to take us to school. I found the only empty seat in the front of the bus so I sat down there.
I tried to scan through the whole bus for the boy and maybe show my gratitude to him but he was at the other end of the bus. There was no way I would be able to walk past all of these rogues to the end of the bus, I was too shy for that.
I hadn't realized I was staring at him until his face caught mine and I adjusted myself in embarrassment. Something about his eyes were weird and strange but I decided to shove the thoughts away. I would probably thank him after the long ride back to school comes to an end.
After what seemed like forever, we finally arrived at school with two heavily loaded wolf guards waiting outside the bus and examining every rogue before they came down from the bus.
"Lenora?" A guard's voice called and I immediately recognized him. He used to be really close to our family when I was young
