Chapter 5

Brittany was lurking through my room and touching my things. I stood in the doorway and watched her quietly, not saying a word. It’s funny how untrained she is, she hadn’t heard me come in and her amateur nose didn’t pick up my fresh scent. I itched to shift and end her, the feral instinct made me peel my lips back. However, now was not the time... Patience is a virtue the best hunters have to live by. For now, I’ll just give her a scare.

I let out a bone-rattling growl and I felt my fingertips sharpen into claws. She spun around the fear that her face betrayed matched the sickly smell that rolled off of her, causing me to smile at her. It was a bloodthirsty and toothy smile. I have never tolerated rabid bitches in my den. The dark thoughts pinged inside my head again. Kill her. My wolf whispered. I shook off the thought, I need to be more clever than that.

“Ambitious bitch. What are you doing pup.” I gritted.

“I was told to help you get dressed.” She muttered, not knowing that I can smell a lie.

“You think I’m too stupid to not know when you lie? Amelia is my help, she is the one who picks out my outfit.” I saw something sparkle behind her back, the same sparkly thing I saw her withdrawal from my jewelry box. “What is this?" I said mockingly. "Stealing? Amelia!” Perhaps Nicolaus will take care of the problem for me.

“Yes, my lady," She said with a smirk. I’m rubbing off on her. She will be my first beta.

“Inform Alpha Nicolaus that he has a thief in his den,” I instructed her. Brittany’s eyes got wide, making me smile more deeply. I guess stealing isn’t permitted here.

“Yes, Alpha.” She emphasized Alpha for Brittany, causing anger to flash across her face, followed by panic.

The slimy worm screeched and tried to run. I simply snatched her hair and pulled her flush to me. “Rabid bitches get put down. It may be today by my alphas hand, I hope not. I would love the opportunity to taste your insides.” With that, I flung her back just seconds before Nicolaus came barging in.

“Brittany. What is the meaning of this?” Nicolaus asked with a growl.

“She just has nice things and I-I wanted to look nice for you my alpha.” Brittany's reply sounded pathetic and desperate.

“You are nothing more than a cheap toy that I fuck Brittany." He sighed deeply. "I don’t care what you look like. Stealing is not tolerated, especially when it’s stealing from your Alpha female.” He clicked his tongue, thinking of a punishment. “Three days in the dungeon without food or water. Ten lashes a day. Your lucky that I have a use for your hands are else I would take them.” He snatched her by the arm and gave me a looked of interest and confusion and hauled her away. I wiggled my fingers at her and smiled.

The day that I get to put her down will be one of the most fulfilling days of my life. The most would be, of course, the day I bathe in my father's blood. I turned to Amelia who was smiling from ear to ear.

“Who are you?” She asked me. I told her everything. My plans, my past, her future. I cared about this female more than I have ever cared for anyone. I haven’t cared this much in a long time. And I told her about that too.

She didn’t say a word she just looked at me pensively. “I’m sorry to hear...” I cut her off with a hand gesture.

“It’s in the past, and it made me who I am today. It taught me that loving someone is a weakness.” But yet I feel something akin to love towards you... I wanted to tell her. It’s not lovers' love but something deeper.

Nicolaus came back about two hours later, walking into my room without knocking. He paced up to me and pressed his forehead to mine, inhaling deeply as he took in my scent.

“You need to start getting ready.” He said with his head tilted to the side. He looked like he was trying to figure something out.

“Go on and say it.” I sighed.

“You’re not a weak as that worthless pack believed. And I’m trying to figure out if you’re playing me or if you don’t know your strength.”

“Only a fool would try to play you, my lord,” I said while bowing my head.

“Tonight you’re mine.” Was all he said before leaving.

I could kill him anytime I wished. The problem lies with if I killed him, me not having a penis, I would not be recognized as the new alpha but as a traitor and put to death. I have no intention of dying. Which is why I came up with a plan to get the pack into my back pocket. It’s going to be interesting once were bound I’ll be able to feel everything he feels and vice versa. He’ll be able to invade my thoughts, I know how to block him out though.

I went to my closet and grabbed my wedding dress. I wore nothing underneath because afterward we will go on a hunt and his wolf will claim mine. Amelia helped me with my makeup and hair. When she was finished she looked at me and smiled.

“You look perfect.” She said in awe.

I grabbed her hand and kissed it. “You did an amazing job, Amelia.”

Only 3 hours until I am bound to Nicolaus. 3 more hours until my plan can be fully put into motion. I just hope my wolf will be as patient as I am. She hasn’t been let out in a while and she can get a little testy when I coupe her up for as long as I have. I don’t mean to it’s just when she’s out she wants everyone to know how to dominate she is.

“Wish me luck Amelia. And pray for me to have patience.” I exasperated with a dramatic sigh.

“You’re going to make a lovely Alpha.” She said with a smile and then exited my room. I sighed and decided to try and finish my movie while I wait.
