Chapter One

Belle’s POV

I stumble through the woods, lost and my vision blurring. I am being chased. I urge my feet to carry me further and away from the danger, barely making the jump over the log I carry on pushing through.

I can hear my pursuers gaining on me, I can hear the thumping of their feet getting louder and closer to me. Something catches my foot as I fall to the ground and hit my head, feeling dizzy I turn around to see the rabid looking rogues only meters away from me.

I close my eyes as a scream bubbles up in my throat.

I wake up with a start, glad to be out of that recurring nightmare. Forcing myself to take calm and deep breathes after my nightmare.

Its been happening for weeks now and I can’t seem to get rid of it, Mum thinks its because my 18th birthday is a week away, the day I find my mate. But that makes no sense, why would I be getting nightmares? I couldn’t figure it out and even my brothers were starting to get concerned.

As I start to think of my family I smell the delicious scent of pancakes entering my nose. With the thought of pancakes, I rush to get dressed and then head downstairs.

I say hi to my older brother Chance and my Mum and Dad, I then see my oldest brother George and his mate Eve and say hi to them as well.

I sit down at the table and serve myself some pancakes. “how was your sleep honey” my Mum asks me, “I had the nightmare again” I say sighing. “I’m sure it will go away soon” my Mum replies with.

After finishing my breakfast and putting my plate in the dishwasher I turn around to see my family all looking at me. “you guys ok?” I question them with a strange look on my face. “yeah, you weren’t replying that’s all” Eve tells me.

“Oh, you were saying something?” I asked confused as I really didn’t hear them say anything. “yes I just wanted to let you know that we will be throwing your birthday party the night of your birthday!” Eve says with a huge smile, my mood instantly brightens, excited for the day I turn 18 “ok awesome I will let my friends know at school” I say with excitement.



Walking into the school I feel dread as I really just want to be at home. Don’t get me wrong, I love hanging out with my friends but overall I would much rather be at home, wouldn’t everyone? I head to my locker and then the field where my friends and I usually sit.

I sit down next to Laura and Georgia “hey guys” I say to the group. I then get a chorus of hellos back. I start to talk with Laura while waiting for the rest of my friends to arrive to tell them about my party.

When I see Max and Clare finally arrive and sit down I get everyone’s attention “Ok guys so I just wanted to let you all know that my birthday will be on the night of my birthday” I say excitedly. I then hear a squeal come from Izzy and then her mate Ben chuckle next to her. “I’m so excited” Izzy says.

“so am I” I reply. I then go onto talk some more before the bell goes signalling first period. I look around at my friends, there was Max who was the TIC’s son and his mate Clare, Izzy and Ben who were also mates, Oliver who was the Alpha’s son and then Georgia and Laura who I was sitting next to.

Smiling to myself about my awesome friends the bell goes off and I head to first period with Oliver and Izzy.

Once I sit down next to Izzy’s desk and Olivers behind me, I tune into the teacher who has just started talking and mentally prepare myself for the rest of the school day.


After the final bell rings, I head out of class and meet up with the group. We all start the walk home and once we reach the pack house Oliver and I say bye and head over to our house.

Because Oliver is part of the Alpha’s family and I am part of the Beta’s we live in our own houses. I don’t really know why but oh well.

I say Bye to Oliver and head into my house as he heads into his across the path from mine. I head inside and head into the kitchen.

“hey, Belles” Chance greets me as I walk into the kitchen “hey Chance” I greet back to him.

“I think dad wants to talk to us now about something important” Chance says as he starts walking down to the offices “alright then” I say as I follow him down. As I enter the basement, I notice that we aren’t talking in dads office but rather the Alpha’s office which is connected to our house through the underground pass.

I follow Chance into the Alpha’s office, I look round and see my whole family including Alpha Alex, Luna Grace and Oliver.

I go to stand next to Oliver as his dad starts speaking. “Ok, so I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow we will be having a Lycan visiting the pack” he pauses as he looks at our reactions. I was personally kinda shocked, seeing as there were very little lycans actually left on earth.

“He is coming to observe our pack for a couple of days, he says that he has been sent by the moon goddess” I mean I have heard that lycans could contact the moon goddess but I didn’t really believe it.

“So I want everyone on their best behaviour considering we are the people the rest of the pack looks up to, does everyone understand?” He questions us. I nod along with everyone else.

“Yes, and he will be staying with us while he observes out pack so I expect everyone to be on their best for those days” My dad speaks, directing it to my family.

“yes, and I will be announcing this to the pack later on tonight, I just thought it would be best to let you guys know first,” He says smiling at us.

I chuckle to myself, I love my uncle Alex. He is brothers with my dad, after all, he gave the beta position to my dad though because my dad was a strong leader.

“Ok well we will see you all at the pack announcement later on tonight,” My aunty/luna Grace says.


After having dinner with my family and the announcement my Mum decided that the house needed to be spotless for our guest, who is supposedly arriving tomorrow.

So here I was cleaning my room, and once I was finished I had to go clean something else.

I mean I understand that the house needs to be clean for the lycan coming to stay but I really, really hate cleaning my room.

After finishing my room my Mum tells me I have to clean the guest room and make the bed for where the lycan will be staying.

I remake the bed with a lot of difficulties and then make sure the bathroom attached is also spick and span.

Once the house was finally ticked off by my mum I was able to head to my bed and look forward to my sleep in tomorrow, considering it was Saturday.


I stumble through the woods, lost and my vision blurring. I am being chased. I urge my feet to carry me further and away from the danger, barely making the jump over the log I carry on pushing through.

I can hear my pursuers gaining on me, I can hear the thumping of their feet getting louder and closer to me. Something catches my foot as I fall to the ground and hit my head, feeling dizzy I turn around to see the rabid looking rogues only meters away from me.

I close my eyes as a scream bubbles up in my throat.

I jolt awake, god I hate that nightmare. I look at my clock to see that it is only 5:30 am. ARGH, so much for my Saturday sleep in.

Knowing I won’t be able to fall back asleep I layer on some warm clothes knowing it will be cold outside and put on my trainers.

I silently slip out the front door, locking it and taking my key with me. I decide to head into the woods to clear my mind from the awful dream.

Once I get into the woods a bit I sit down on the ground and lean against the tree. There is something about the woods that is just so calming.

My wolf is usually a quiet one but I can always sense her and it makes me feel safe. Wolves shift when they are 16 and let me tell you, it was painful.

It is fine now but the first shift is the worst shift. My wolf and I have a good understanding of each other. We only really talk when we want but otherwise we just silently comfort each other, I like it like that.

Her name is Bella, which is kinda funny considering my name is Belle. I have a little chuckle to myself and then turn back to my other thoughts.

I suddenly get the feeling of unease, I can feel that Bella is also feeling uneasy.

That was when I heard it, the howl of the border patrol letting everyone know there has been a breach. I can feel that the rogues are near.

I instantly stand up and start running back to my house. Only to trip on a rock and smash my head against the side of a rock. Disorientating and confusing myself.

I stumble through the woods, lost and my vision blurring. I am being chased. I urge my feet to carry me further and away from the danger, barely making the jump over the log I carry on pushing through.

I can hear my pursuers gaining on me, I can hear the thumping of their feet getting louder and closer to me. Something catches my foot as I fall to the ground and hit my head, feeling dizzy I turn around to see the rabid looking rogues only meters away from me.

I close my eyes as a scream bubbles up in my throat as the rogue jumps at me. I let out the scream.

But nothing touches me, all I can hear is growling. I open my eyes and can just make out through my blurry vision a man standing in front of me growling at the rogues.

My vision blurs and my head spins and I let my head drop to the ground.

I open my eyes again to see the rogues lying dead with their throats ripped out in front of me.

Deeply confused I look around to see the man from before approaching me. I couldn't make out his face properly though.

He bends down and says something to me just as I pass out of consciousness.
