"Is working till dawn to dusk count as a trip? If yes, then it was really tiresome", mom sighed and I chuckled, though I felt bad for her deep down. She has lost her father and she didn't even get to mourn to her heart's content. She has to take over the role as an Alpha and then make the necessary preparation to hand over everything to my brother.
"How was your experience as an Alpha?", she asked teasingly. I shrugged, not knowing how to respond. I had a lot of responsibility on my shoulder but I don't mind it, in fact, I had only faced a problem when dealing with Beta Issac. Oh, and my mate too. I didn't say that to her of course.
"From what I've heard, everyone in the pack was happy to have an Alpha like you. You've earned their respect and I'm so proud of you", mom took my hands in hers and squeezed. My heart filled with a warm sensation. My pack respects me, not fear but respect and as an Alpha that is a big achievement.
Then I remembered how I'm going behind their backs and my mood dampened a little. Will they still respect me if they find out who my mate is? I'm not sure. They will either flip or kick me out of the pack and the possibility of both reactions is higher.
I took my hands back from her hand and faked a smile. How will she react when she finds out about my mate? Will she disown me? Probably. I sighed softly as I followed mom in silence. Mom didn't question me because she knows I like silence.
The pack members bowed in greeting as we walked past them. I smiled at them slightly before I move forward. Dad was already seated on his Alpha chair so mom took a seat on his right and I sat on his left. Dad kissed my forehead as I sat, causing Beta Issac to glare at me. I swear that he always gets jealous whenever dad shows me any affection so I always try to show him who is dad's favourite whenever he is near. Yup, I'm that petty when it comes to him.
My lips curled up in a barely-there smirk as I set my eyes on his glowering face. Geez, he acts childishly for his age.
"Let's start the dinner", my dad commanded and my mom took the first bite, followed by dad before everyone dig into the food. I scrunched my nose when I caught the smell of strawberries. I hate strawberries more than anything. Hate is the understatement actually, I detest that fruit with every fibre in my body.
"Who has used strawberries in the desert?", I asked with a scrunched nose. Dad chuckled at the face I made, which I ignored.
"Beta Issac requested for it", one of the kitchen staff replied. I glared at the Beta and he smiled mockingly. I'm more than sure that he has requested that so I can't have dessert and he knows I don't get satisfied until I eat my dessert. It is safe to say I have sweet teeth.
"I see", it is not a place to make a big deal about it so I shut my mouth and focused on the dinner first, I'll have one of the kitchen staff make something sweet for me later.
I gobbled the food down quickly, it wasn't hard to finish the food quickly as there was no food that I liked or is one of my favourites.
"I'll leave now", I announced as I stood up. Dad nodded and allowed me to leave.
"Wait", I stopped mid-step and turned towards the owner of the voice. It was the same member from before who has said that Issac has made a special request for the desert.
"Yes?", I asked softly and waited for her answer. She ran into the kitchen and came back with a container.
"Here, I had made this for you", she said and passed the container to me. I opened the lid and my eyes lit up when I saw tiramisu inside.
"Thank you", I smiled at her before I bounced up to my room. I sat on the corner of the bed and opened the container. I didn't waste any time in scooping the desert into a spoon and put it into my mouth.
I moaned as the flavour burst into my mouth. I frowned when I felt hot air on my face. I opened my eyes and they immediately widened when they met the stormy ones of my mate.
He was close and with each passing second, he closed the distance between us until his lips touched mine. My breathing escalated in anticipation.
His tongue flickered out and roamed around the corner of my bottom lips. His dark eyes never left mine as he did so. After licking my lower lips he pulled back and commented, "tasty".
A shiver racked down my back as his hungry eyes roamed all over my body, lighting fire wherever his gaze touched.
"What are you doing here?", I squeaked out and then cleared my throat to spoke normally. His small peck has made me this breathless.
"I can't come to see my mate?", he raised his eyebrows. I'd have thought he is teasing me if I didn't know better.
"You can come anything you want", I blurted out without thinking. He hummed and closed the distance again, capturing my lips in a passionate kiss.
I opened my lips for him when his tongue tapped on my lips. His tongue stroked my tongue, lulling my tongue into his mouth and then he sucked on it. I let out a strangled moan when his lips wrapped around my tongue.
I gasped for air when he let me go. He let me breathe for a few seconds before he pulled me in for another orgasmic kiss.
"I want to take you somewhere", he said in a husky whisper. My body temperature raised continuously.
"Where?", I asked nervously. Where does he want to take me?
"I want you to meet someone", he said and my breath hitched. Is it what I think it is? I silently searched his eyes for an answer and when he nodded his head in confirmation my heart rate picked up.
"I want you to meet my pack", he said and I swear I almost faint from nervousness. I gulped audibly but nodded. I feel like a lamb who is walking straight in the lion's den.
Who else is excited to see his pack's reaction? 🙋♀️
