My eyes shot opened. Did he really just say that or was I dreaming?
Suddenly I was wide awake.
He couldn’t love me. I had to much baggage. I’m still broken!
I didn’t want to let him down either. I don’t know if I could ever love him. Even though I wanted to.
There was a wall inside me I had to break down before I could truly let him in.
And I don’t know how to.
I stared at him, shocked, not saying anything.
“Liza I-I’m sorry if that was too fast. I just. I don’t know.” he stuttered and looked down.
I think I even saw some pink in his cheeks.
I was so happy that he loved me, but I was also confused.
“No, no. It’s okay.” I told him and rolled over so I wasn’t facing him anymore.
“Well, goodnight .” He said awkwardly.
“Night.” I whispered back.
I can’t believe I just told Liza I love her! How could I be so stupid? This was probably way to fast for her!
I didn’t want to overwhelm her, but my wolf got the better of me, and I blurted it out.
And to make it worse she just sat there shocked and confused. There was even a hint of pain in her eyes.
So I rambled on saying I was sorry and stuff.
I’m so stupid!
She just rolled over and went to sleep.
When I knew she was fast asleep I slipped out of bed.
I needed to clear my head, and the best way to do that was to run.
I quietly walked out of the room and into the hallway.
I crept down the hallway, and I was halfway down the stairs when I ran into someone.
It was Jay.
“Hey man.” He whispered.
“Hey.” I whispered back.
“I kinda, accidentally, told Liza I love her.”
His eyes widened but his face was a question mark. “So?”
“She wasn’t ready to hear that yet. I don’t think she’s even fully let me in.” I explained.
“So, where are you going?” Jay asked, to change the subject.
“I need to run.”
“Mind if I join?”
And with that we headed downstairs, outside, and into the woods.
I really was lucky to have a friend, and future Beta, like Jay.
We were running through a clearing in the woods when something to the right caught my eye.
I slowed down and walked in the direction the thing was in.
Jay was beside me in a second.
“What are you doing man?” He questioned through our mind link.
“I saw something.” I answered.
As we got closer I made out three figures.
“They’re wolves.” Jay told me.
I sniffed the air and sure enough they were wolves, but from a different pack.
“Who are you, and why are you in my territory?” I questioned them in my Alpha voice.
“We are the Basilicus pack, and we have come to find the girl from the prophecy.” The larger one of the group answered.
“Well your not going to find her here.” I told them.
“Oh but she is here. And we suspect that she lives in your pack house.” The smallest one said.
“Come with us to the pack house.” I ordered.
The five of us made our way back and shifted so we could go inside.
I told them there was clothes behind most of the trees, then went inside to get my father.
But he was already in his office waiting for me.
“Who did you bring home?” He demanded in a hushed voice.
“Three wolves saying they were looking for a girl from some prophecy. They called themselves the Basilicus pack.” I told him.
When I said the last part my dad’s face paled.
“What?” I asked, worried now.
“They are royalty, from the highest ranking pack.” Was all he could manage.
Wait what? Royalty?
Jay choose now to bring them in.
Through the mind link I told him who they are.
His face pale just like my dads.
My father stood up with his hand outstretched. “I’m Alpha Brian.” He introduced formally, shaking their hands.
The one that I guessed was the leader of the three and probably the future Alpha said “I am Hakkon, and these are my younger brothers Malikiah and Lorenzo.”
Wow, they even had cool royal names.
“Why are you on my land?” My dad asked.
“We have come for the girl from the prophecy.” Hakkon answered.
“Why are you so sure this girl is here?” Dad questioned.
“The seeker has seen her here.” Lorenzo spoke up this time.
What the hell is a seeker?
I couldn’t help but ask, “Seeker?”
“The one who can seek the future, or seek the location of important people.” Malikiah took his turn speaking.
I was about to say something when Hakkon, Lorenzo and Malikiah’s head snapped to the door.
“Sorry, I was trying to find the bathroom.” My little mate said.
I immediately walked to her and put a possessive arm around her waist.
“It’s her.” Hakkon said.
