Killian’s Point of View
“Hunter where the fuck are you dude? I need to talk to you now.” I say through our mind link.
“Dude, calm down. I’m down at the training area. I was getting in some extra training and teaching some of younger wolves some hand-to-hand combat.” He replies.
“I’ll be there in a few. Be ready to go for a run. We need to talk away from everyone.”
“Alright but we’re not going far. For some reason my wolf has been going nuts the last two day and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.”
I get to the training area in under five minutes and if I know Hunter, he’s probably flirting with some she-wolf. Once I spot him, I see that he talking to that she-wolf Ashley. I hope that she is not his mate. I need to end their conversation now.
“Hunter, let’s go.” I say not even acknowledging her.
“Hello mate.” Ashley says to me with a sly smile on her face.
“Dude, she’s your mate?” Hunter asks with a scowl on his face. I can tell that he does not like her.
“No, she is not. She is trying to claim that she is but Kian is completely disgusted by her.” I say to him right in front of her. “You need to quit spreading lies about us being mates. I know you are not my mate. You will never be my Queen or Luna.” I spit at her.
“Well, she was just telling me how she knows that she is your mate and can’t wait to replace me as your Beta.” Hunter informs me.
Suddenly I have my hand around her neck and her feet are not touching the ground. She’s struggling hard against my grip. I know if I don’t let go soon, she’s going to lose consensus. Honestly, I don’t really care I’m done with this worthless piece of shit. She wiggles as much as she can while clawing at my hand.
“YOU WILL QUIT SPEWING LIES ABOUT YOU BEING THE FUTRURE QUEEN LUNA BEFORE YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A CELL FOR THE REST OF YOUR ROTTEN LIFE. YOU ARE NO LONGER TO SPEAK TO ME, SUTTON, MY PARENTS, OR THE TWINS! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?” Kian growls at her in his Alpha tone.
“Yyyy….eeeee….ssss sssss….iiiii….rrrr..” Her wolf says to me. Fortunately, no matter how disrespectful a human can be their wolf will always cower in the presence of an Alpha.
“Good now get lost you worthless she-wolf. Hunter lets go. I’m done with her.” I say as I drop her to the ground. I turn and shift into Kian while nodding at Hunter to follow. I feel like I cannot get away from that she-wolf fast enough.
“Dude, that was fucking hilarious. I think she’s still standing there like an idiot with her jaw hanging wide open.” Hunter mind links me.
“She’s nothing but a giant pain in the ass who is after power.” I say as we come into a beautiful clearing near a little lake. I shift back and change and sit down on a giant bolder waiting for Hunter to join me.
“Dude what’s going on. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen you so agitated before.” Hunter says while coming to join me.
“That was not the first time that Ashley tried to say that I was her mate. She did it earlier right in front of Sutton. Sutton went off on her. Remind me to never piss her off. I know I would not want to be on the receiving end of one of her bitch outs.”
“So, what’s the real reason you dragged me out here? I know it wasn’t to tell me that that Ashley chick is a total bitch.”
“After the meeting I had with my parents and Alpha Axel and Luna Bella, I over heard Sutton tell Remi that she thinks we could possibly be mates.”
“But how would she know she’s not even 18?”
“She said that she felt the slightest of sparks when I put my hand on her lower back when that nasty rogue showed up.”
“That’s awesome if she is already feeling the pull of the mate bond.”
“Yeah, I know. But I’m just afraid that I won’t be able to control Kian. when he heard that he tried to fight his way forward to claim her.”
“That wouldn’t have been good. So, are you going to avoid her for the next couple of weeks or are you going to try and get to know her before the full effect of the bond?”
“I don’t know. All I know is that I can’t stand being away from her. But I don’t want to seem like I’m ‘stalking’ her.” I say using air quotes around the word stalking.
“You wouldn’t be ‘stalking’ her if you just play it cool and try and get to know her. Ask her about her favorite places here in the territory, what she likes to do. You already know that she loves to ride horses. Get to know her on a friendship level first. Who knows the more time you spend with her the stronger the pull may become and the sooner it could potentially be confirmed that you two truly are mates.” Hunter tells me.
“I don’t know dude. I don’t want to make her uncomfortable. I just feel like if I find every excuse in the book to be around her, she may get suspicious. The last thing I want to do is scare her away. Kian keeps screaming mate inside my head giving me a headache. Fucking wolf needs to just chill. But enough about me, any luck on finding your mate yet?”
“No. I’m honestly starting to wonder if I’m going to be one of those rare mateless wolves you hear about. I just might choose a she-wolf soon.”
“You’ll find her dude. I’m sure about that.” This is why I like talking to him. He may be a giant goofball but somewhere deep down he’s got a good head on his shoulders. You need a good head in order to be the Royal Beta.
