“Are you going to make this difficult for me?” I had no right to pressure him to accept the rejection when who knows what the hell Curtis was up to. “Are you going to force me to date you?” I felt like ranting. “You have slept with half of the pack and you expect me to believe that you didn’t have some cheap hussy in your life?” My mate frowned, “I slept with a few women. I kept one or two for sexual release but that was all.” He studied my facial expression of disgust. “I have you now so I don’t need them. You will satisfy me in every way and I will do everything to make you happy.” “We are not fairytale characters, and I am not going to be your sex tool.” I wanted my resistance to be adamant. “There’s no happy ending for us.” “I beg to differ. You are drawn to me just as I am to you.” He smirked as he leaned his jaw on his hand that rested upright with its elbow on the table. Perfectly aware that his touch triggers the magnetic suction of the mate bond, hypnotizing me to get lost into his soul. “How many naughty thoughts have you had about me since I picked you up?” I blushed profusely and took another sip of wine. Clearing my throat and faking coughs. I wasn’t going to answer that. - Sianna and Curtis are high school sweethearts. Thinking that their love could conquer all obstacles, they vowed to reject their mates and be together. Sianna met her mate and rejected him. But When Curtis met his mate, he cheated and lied to Sianna instead. Broken-hearted, Sianna found comfort in someone else's arms, her Alpha, and they had a one night stand. Now what happens when the Alpha does not want to let Sianna go? How far will the Alpha go to keep her? Should she forgive and honor her promise to Curtis or take her chances with the possessive Alpha? Will Curtis be able to redeem himself and get his Sianna back?
Chapter 1 - REJECTING THE FATES
“I reject you as my mate.”
As I spoke out the words, his hands balled into a fist while staring at me with his piercing green eyes.
I knew he was angry. Who would expect to be rejected when you finally found your mate?
But I had to do this.
I had been in a relationship with my boyfriend Curtis since high school. We never thought about mating with other strangers, so we both decided to reject our mates when we met them, and then we could choose each other as our mate to spend the rest of our life together.
We had it all mapped out and I wasn’t going to give that up.
The man before me was silent but held his stare on me, though he was now feeling the surge of pain as the bond was being severed.
I knew how much it hurt. I staggered, suffering the same effect.
But I knew it would pass.
“Why?” He finally growled as worry and angry flashed through his perplexed green eyes.
“I am in love with someone else and I am not leaving him for someone that I don’t care about.” I sounded heartless but I needed to be sincere so that he understood where I stood with the mate bond. “I am not going to date you or get to know you.”
I scanned his face to notice his flawless chiseled chin and prominent cheekbones. He had thick lashes protecting his eyes and the most kissable pouty lips. His jet black hair fell over his forehead and eyes while the rest fell to the back of his head.
'Our mate is perfect! Why did you reject him?!' My wolf growled inside, not liking my decision.
'We met Curtis first. We love him, and you agreed to it too.' I reminded her.
The Greek god of a man smirked and got up from the table in the café. His powerful aura radiating in the building. Mixed with that was his intoxicating scent of pumpkin mixed with pine trees that was driving my wolf crazy and making her propelling me to run into his arms.
“I will let you think about it some more and if within three months you still feel the same, I will let you go.” Despite my hostility, his voice was calming. He walked away leaving his coffee and bagel untouched.
I watched him through the glass window as he got in his car and drove away. I felt terrible and guilty. At least the café was empty as we were closing up for the day.
After leaving high school, I left my pack to head off to college but decided that I missed Curtis too much, so I transferred to do online classes. This way I could still be home with mom and dad while I got to hang around my handsome sweetheart.
Mates were destined to fall in love, and to cherish and protect each other for their entire lifetime. It accompanied a supernatural pull that made mates irresistible to each other and fall in love. Our wolves are always quick to accept their mates but our human side might need time. Additionally, we experience human emotions and tendencies.
Even so, we can choose to accept or reject our mates. Rejection is done by making a declaration using the full names of the mate that is doing the rejection and the mate that is being rejected. In order to complete the rejection and fully sever the mate bond, the party being rejected has to accept the rejection.
My rejection would still be the same even after three months, so I hoped that my ex-mate wasn’t getting his hopes up.
My wolf has been quiet even since my attempted rejection of our mate. She was upset with me but I thought she already knew I wouldn’t accept him. I mean, she liked Curtis, so what was her problem?
We will heal from this and live our happy ending with Curtis Black. I am optimistic and I believe in our love.
Curtis doesn’t know that I have met my mate and I don’t want to mention it until the mate bond is fully severed. I don’t want to make him worry or feel insecure that my mate might steal me away from him.
I am currently working at the café in our town so that I can have time for my classes and training. Everyone in this pack is required to have some form of training for self-defense when rogues attack or in the event of a war.
After I got home, I showered and went online to the college portal to check on my courses and assignments. My phone lights up with a beep and I see a message from an unknown number.
-Unknown: I am glad that you got home safely. It was a pleasure meeting you today. I promise not to bother you too much but being able to send a message once in a while might actually help.
An assumption formed in my head immediately that this had to be my ex-mate.
I decided not to reply as I don’t want the bond to grow stronger.
He might think that he was slick, but I knew a man can be persistent when he wants a woman. I rolled my eyes and blocked his number.
I won’t allow him to get close to me or even be friends for the sake of my boyfriend and our relationship.
I sent Curtis a goodnight message before I went to bed. However, I spotted two red eyes in my backyard staring up at me when I was closing the window. I froze as they sucked me in. My wolf stirred and purred like a kittycat. I gulped at the foreign heat that suddenly surged in my body.
“Shit!” I muttered as I saw a wolf laid down with his focus on me.
I could guess who it was. So, he was this determine, huh?
Shaking my head, I closed the window while ignoring him. I jumped into bed, crawling under the covers and praying to get some sleep tonight.
Who would have thought that rejecting someone could be this troublesome?
It took hours to fall asleep but when I looked out the window again, he was gone. I sighed in relief and then dozed off to dreamland.
He would not make me change my decision. Never!
CHAPTER 2 - G'MORNING FIRECAT
Even now, three days later, I can still feel the turbulence in my life. My phone alarm goes off at precisely six in the morning, jarring me out of my euphoric sleep and forcing me to open my eyes.
For Tara, today was a noteworthy day. She has been contracted to provide catering at the Gear Pavilion, which will start at nine this morning. My suspicions that a specific someone engineered this scheme to put me in his orbit began to rise the minute that she told me about it. But I wasn’t going to bail on her.
Blindly, I stretched to the night table to take up the noisy phone to turn off the alarm when my hands brushed against something, and it fell to the floor.
Abruptly, I jolted out of bed to check what could have fallen. Perturbed, I scrutinized the objects. I found a card and a stuffed pony of Princess Celestia from “My Little Pony.” I used to watch the animation as a kid, and this character was my favorite. I even u
Loving the story so far. It The story is told trough the perspective of the main charachters. Storyline is build up nicely. Dialogues are good. It is Nice to see that the author reacted on Some of the comments and asks for feedback.In the beginning of the book some chapters began with the last page of the chapter before. Dont let this keep you from reading further. The repeating will get less when you get further. The book has more then than 200 chapters. Looking forward to read them all.moreFebruary 14, 2024
I’m enjoying the book so far, however I will say I kind of already had a feeling that Sianna’s boyfriend was cheating from the beginning so I wasn’t surprised when that revelation came to light. I was however surprised that the Alpha was her mate when I was leaning towards either the Beta or Gamma of the pack but the author pleasantly surprised me. I do however wish that the author had written Sianna with a little more maturity and less naivety in the beginning when it came to her relationship with the boyfriend.moreFebruary 14, 2024
I love the book and how you have the POV of the main characters. I love how Vance fought for his mate and didn't give up or back down. And how Curtis showed his true colors for Sianna to see he doesn't love her. Just the idea he should stay with her since they have been together for so many years. The mare bond brought the true mates together. I love how you are very detailed in the sex scenes.moreFebruary 10, 2024
