Chapter 34- Season 2
I felt someone shaking me lightly and calling my name. I slowly opened my eyes and saw the worried face of my mate in front of me. I was in our bed in the cabin. My mate helped me to sit up straight on the bed and I held my head and scrunched up my face.
“Wait, I’ll bring medicine for you.” He left and got me a tablet and a glass of water. After having the medicine, I started to feel a little better. Suddenly a very strong, heavenly scent hit my senses and I couldn’t help but close my eyes and breathe it in.
“Berenice?” my mate called out my name. I opened my eyes immediately and launched myself on my mate and buried my nose in his neck. The heavenly scent was coming from my mate.
“You smell so nice, mate.” I said and moaned at the tingles that ran through my body after I touched my mate.
I ran my nose at the column of his neck and moaned loudly. My hands were clutching my mate’s Tee-Shirt while my mate’s hands were tightly gripping my waist.
“What are you doing, Berry?” he said through gritted teeth, his grip becoming tighter as the seconds pass by. It was becoming difficult for me to breathe but not because of my mate’s grip on me but because of the sudden arousal I felt.
“Mate!” I moaned and lightly sucked on his neck. As soon as I did this my mate pushed me away from and shot out of the cottage. I was left speechless on the bed.
I… what the hell was I doing?
Why did my mate push me away?
My eyes filled with tears. Do I repulse him that much? Is he still bothered by me being like a pathetic human? That I am not his equal?
I sniffled and rubbed my eyes, stopping the tears from falling.
I walked out of the cottage to find my mate.
There he was, standing near a tree, his back towards me, breathing heavily, his hands fist at his sides. His body was rigid, his veins popped out from his hands.
“M- Mate.” I called him out, my voice cracked and I was trying hard to control myself from the ugly sobbing.
He turned towards me almost immediately and I gasped as I saw his golden eyes staring right at me.
He closed his eyes and pinched the bridge of his nose. He opened his eyes after a few seconds and they were back to the beautiful blues.
“Why did you push me away?” I asked and my lips wobbled. I don’t know why I was feeling so humiliated.
I think my mate felt what I was feeling because he looked at me with shock and then his expressions changed into anger and he was right in my face in a blink of a second.
“What the hell are you thinking Berenice?” he asked me through gritted teeth. He was trying to control himself but I could feel the anger oozing off of him.
I couldn’t handle the intensity of it and I whimpered and tried to step back but he gripped my arm and pulled me towards him with full force and I slammed right into his chest.
He held my chin and made me look into his eyes that were filled with anger and disbelief.
“Speak up Berry! What were you thinking?” he almost yelled. I was feeling scared of him and tried to get away but he didn’t let me. I started sobbing hard to the point that it became difficult for me to breathe.
My mate’s eyes softened at my state and he released my chin from his hold.
“Hey, don’t cry, I’m sorry.” He said in a gentle voice and wiped my tears away.
It took me a while to gather myself together.
“Do you want to have some water?” he asked in a tone as if he was talking to a child. I shook my head to decline.
He held both my hands and placed them around his neck and his arms went around my waist, holding me as close to him as possible.
“Now tell me, what were you thinking?” he whispered in my ear. I know he was being careful with me. he was trying not to scare me.
I really am not a perfect match for him. I got scared just from yelling, how the hell will I help him to lead his kingdom? I am pathetic.
“You- you pushed me away. Are you that much disgusted by me?” I mumbled. My mate’s body went rigid. He pulled my face away from his chest and cupped my cheeks.
“How can you even think that, Berry? You think I am disgusted by you? I would’ve taken you then and there if I hadn’t left. You are not ready for it. It is very hard for me to control myself around you, Berry and you think I am disgusted by you? Are you out of your mind?” he said while shaking my head a little bit.
“I- uhh.” I didn’t know what to say. If he hadn’t left, then….. I would be a mated and completely claimed female. I blushed at the thought.
“You over think too much, mate.” My mate said and flicked my forehead. I hit his chest in return.
“What happened to me suddenly?” I asked my mate. He did not respond. He just looked at me with a blank face. He knew what is happening.
“Please, tell me.” I pleaded.
“Don’t be scared, Berry. You’ll know soon enough.”
“But-” he didn’t let me complete and picked me up in his arms. My legs wrapped around his waist and I held on to his neck but I knew I wouldn’t fall. He kissed me on my lips and my eyes widened at his sudden actions.
He walked inside the cottage while kissing me and lowered me down on the bed. I was now laying on the bed with him on top of me, kissing me slowly. I closed my eyes and moved my lips along with his.
His scent engulfed me and triggered something in me. I don’t know what happened to me but I started struggling in his hold. My mate broke our kiss and looked at me in confusion.
“What happe- oof.” I switched our positions and now I was on top of my mate. He was just looking at me, his gaze fixated on my eyes. His hands were on both sides of his head in a tight fist.
I hold his face in both my hands and lean down to kiss him. He allows me to kiss him and does not try to take the control from me. he opened his mouth to welcome my tongue and let me explore.
The kiss was slow, igniting something in me and it soon turn aggressive. I wanted to be close to my mate. As close as possible. I wanted to touch him, to feel him.
I started to kiss him on his jaw and then moved towards his neck. My mate was breathing heavily underneath me and was trying to control himself from doing anything. Both his hands were still in a tight fist and he closed his eyes.
I kept on kissing and sucking on his neck.
“Please, touch me, mate.” I whispered in his ear and bit on his earlobe.
My mate let out a loud growl and opened his eyes. I gasped when I noted his golden eyes. It looked like molten gold. I could see the hunger in them. I could feel the restraint he’s trying to keep. His tightened his jaw and closed his eyes once again.
I sat on his hips and tried to pull on his Tee-Shirt. He held my hands immediately.
“Don’t start something you can’t finish, Berenice.” I moaned when I heard my name from his mouth.
“I don’t know what is happening to me.” I whispered. I could feel myself getting wet down there.
“Mate!” I whined.
Touch me! Please, touch me!
I wanted to scream at him.
It was getting too hot for me to handle. I needed some kind of relief. My breathing became labored and I started to sweat profusely.
I couldn’t help but to grind my hips with my mate’s.
As soon as I did that, my mate’s eyes snapped open and he flipped our positions and was on top of me again.
He did not wait for anything and buried his teeth in my neck, in my mark, even deeper than before. I let out a loud scream.
I began thrashing in my mate’s hold, that pain returning back. He pulled out his teeth from my neck and picked me up in his arms and ran outside the cabin.
“I- It Hu-u-hurts.” I sobbed. I could see my mate’s pained expression looking at my condition.
“I know baby. It will be over soon.” He said and put me down on the open ground.
The pain intensified ten folds and I let out a high-pitched scream.
“IT HURTS! IT HURTS SO MUCH!” I started ugly sobbing, my body thrashing wildly.
I felt like dying.
“Focus on my voice, Berry.” I could hear my mate’s distressed voice.
“PLEASE, MAKE IT STOP!” I screamed. My vision was turning blurry. It felt like someone was breaking my bones slowly, one by one. I can’t handle this torture.
I could feel my spine bending and my limbs twisting and the tearing of my clothes, I could feel every single thing. The pain made me wish for my death.
“STOP! PLEASE STOP!” I was crying and screaming on top of my lungs.
“DON’T RESIST THE CHANGE, BERENICE. LET THE CHANGE HAPPEN.” I heard my mate screaming.
“I am here, Berry. I will take care of you. Let it go Berry, stop resisting. Everything will be fine, baby.” My mate spoke again.
I could feel hair sprouting from everywhere on my body. Something was happening.
The pain hit me altogether and I let out a gut-wrenching scream and lost my consciousness.

I woke up to the sound of birds. I opened my eyes slowly and everything was black. I started panicking.
“Shhh, mate. Don’t panic. I am here.” I heard my mate’s melodious voice which was deeper than the usual. He was right next to me.
Slowly, my vision started to come back and I blinked rapidly. We were still outside our cabin and it was night time now.
Something was… different.
I could smell the beautiful fragrance of mother Earth like I never did before. My mate’s scent was prominent here.
My vision was clearer than before. I felt something different in me. I felt my mate caressing my head and I looked at him to ask him what was happening and all that came out from my mouth was a whine.
I wanted to get up but I couldn’t. I slowly looked down and I saw a big, furry, dark brown paw instead of my hand.
I started panicking. My mate gripped my face which I now realize is a snout and looked straight into my eyes.
“You turned into your wolf, Berry.” I didn’t know what to do now.
“Try to stand up, mate.” He said and moved a little away from me. I started to get up but fell down again. It was difficult to coordinate all four legs together. After a few tries I managed to get up on my wobbly legs.
I realized that I now tower above my mate. My mate looked up at me proudly. I started to wag my tail to express my happiness.
My mate is impressed by my wolf form!
“You are so beautiful, Berenice.” My mate said and reached out to caress my face. I leaned down and nuzzled my face in the palm of his hand.
He started caressing my face and then slowly walked towards my stomach and back. I shivered at the pleasant feeling, enjoying my mate’s touch.
“You have such a soft coat. A beautiful dark brown, just like chocolate.” He said and smiled at me.
“You should try to walk.” He said and I stretched my limbs. I started to walk and it felt amazing. My mate was walking by my side.
I inspected the area surrounding our little cottage, sniffed every plant and tree. I was enjoying my enhanced senses. I even jogged around our cabin and my mate watched me with a smile on his face.
“I will take you to a run next time you turn.” My mate said when I was lying on the grass, after an hour of exploring the area.
“Now you need to turn back.” I looked at him in confusion. I don’t know how to turn back.
“Wait.” My mate said and went inside the cabin. He came out with a huge blanket. It was really very huge. It was enough to cover up my wolf form.
How come I didn’t notice this inside the cabin?
He covered me up and asked me to close my eyes and imagine my human form. I did as he said and I soon turned back.
I was huddled in the blanket as it was humongous for me. My mate picked me up in his arms in bridal style and took me inside the cabin.

At the castle
“Ryder!” Charlie came running towards his mate who was busy sorting out some files in his office.
“Yes, Baby. Are you alright? Did something happen to you?” Ryder asked when he noticed his little mate’s panicked expressions. He examined his mate’s body looking for any injuries and was satisfied when he found none.
“I- I saw a golden glow coming from the woods. It was there for a few seconds and then it disappeared. I don’t know what it was. I think we should go and check, Alpha and Luna are there too. What if something happens to them.” Ryder’s eyes widen in realization.
He pulled his mate towards him and gives him a loving kiss on the lips, thanking him to be so caring for everyone.
“No need to worry baby. It’s a good news.” Charlie was confused.
“What good news?”
“Your Luna Berry has finally turned into her wolf.” Charlie gasped in surprise.
Ryder was really happy.
It has happened. It has finally happened.
