~Alexiana’s POV~

Hey guys, what’s up? Well let me introduce myself. My name is Alexiana Marie Cortez. I am 17 years old - going on 18 in about a week and a half. I have long black hair that cascades down to the middle of my back. I have hazel colored eyes and I’m about five feet and six inches tall. My body is thin and curvy. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way I look, but my body makes the un-mated males snap their heads towards me and look at me from head to toe as if I was a piece of meat. To be honest, I find that rude and disgusting; I have more respect for myself, unlike some people here in this pack. But you’ll get to find all that out, including my best friends, later on today. Also, today is the first day back to school and it’s a Friday - thank the moon goddess! I have about a year to go before I graduate and if everything goes well, I could graduate early. Anyways, I’m about to get woken up by my mom, so later.

“ALEXIANA MARIE CORTEZ! GET OUT OF BED NOW OR YOU’LL BE LATE FOR SCHOOL!” My mom yelled from outside of my bedroom. I was trying to keep my eyes closed and hiding underneath my covers, until I heard my mom again, “Alexiana, don’t test my patience, you have twenty-five minutes until school starts.”

“WHAT! TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES? SHIT, SHIT, SHIT!” I shouted while quickly getting out of bed and rushing towards the bathroom.

“ALEXIANA, WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE!” My mom shouted while descending down the stairs to the kitchen.

“Sorry mom!” I quickly replied while stripping from my pajamas and hopping into the hot, steamy shower.

~10 minutes later~

After I got out of the shower, I dried and wrapped my body with my blue fluffy towel and grabbed another towel for my hair. I got out of the bathroom and walked to my walk-in closet; I briskly put on my undergarments, my black skinny jeans, a white tank top and my all black converse. I grabbed my backpack, my phone from my nightstand and my car keys from my dresser.

I ran down the stairs towards the kitchen where my parents were at, grabbed a granola bar from the cupboard and a water bottle from the fridge. I kissed my parent’s cheek and said my goodbyes while running out of the house to my beautiful beast - all black Bugatti La Voiture Noire with tinted windows. I started the engine and sped out of the driveway to go to the educational building.

After I got to school and parked my car, I was already twenty minutes late. “Oh well! Let’s get this day over with.” I said out loud to myself while getting out of my beautiful beast. Once I got inside the building, I went straight to my locker. While I was grabbing my books, I got shoved against my right shoulder which caused me to hit my forehead against my locker door.

“UGH! WHAT THE FUCK!” I cursed out loud as I rubbed my forehead in pain. I turned my head towards my right and of course, it is none other than the school’s slut, Jessica Whitman.

“Oops, my bad. I didn’t see you there.” Chuckled Jessica with a smirk on her face. Her face is caked up with a lot of makeup; she looks like a clown. Is she trying to enter the circus?

“I bet you didn’t, maybe you need a pair of glasses to see or I could shove my fist down your throat so your eyes could pop out to better your vision!” I retorted sarcastically while slamming my locker door close. Jessica flinched a little, but quickly recovered. Then she started to walk a little closer to me acting all tough and intimidating - yeah right, she does not scare me. In fact, she is the one that is scared of me because she knows I would knock her the fuck out. Anyways, when she was close enough, she said, “You better watch how you talk to your future Luna because I will not tolerate disrespect.”

I looked at Jessica in the eyes for a couple of seconds before I laughed. She looks at me confused as to what was funny, but her look of confusion looks like she is constipated which makes me laugh even harder; I laughed so hard, tears was rolling down my cheeks.

When I recovered from my laughing fit, I asked Jessica if she was constipated? She looked at me weirdly, so I explained my question to her.

Once I was done explaining, she got really pissed and attempted to slap me, but the bell rang. I did not let her do or say anything at all because one, all the students started filling up the halls, so I did not want unnecessary attention from everybody and two, I did not want to be late for second period.

As I was walking down the hall, I ended up bumping into a hard chest and falling down on my ass. I got up from the floor, brushed off my jeans and looked up to the person in front of me. Of course, the person in front of me is the school’s playboy, Kyle Greyson. Hey don’t get me wrong, he’s a good looking guy. He’s about six feet and two inches tall, his body is nicely built and muscular - to the point where you can see his defined six pack abs through his black short sleeve shirt. His black hair is combed back messily, as if he ran his fingers through it countless times. He has these gorgeous ocean blue almond-shaped eyes; I could totally get lost in them. His sharp-chiseled jawline, looking so lickable and don’t get me started on his heart shaped plump lips; I bet his lips are very soft and kissable.


“Are you done checking me out sweetheart?” I was pulled out of my thoughts by Kyle with a smirk plastered on his face.

“I wasn’t checking you out, you asshole. I was thinking if I should kick your ass for standing in my way to go to class!” I said getting frustrated.

I guess by the angry look and the glare Kyle was giving me, he didn’t like my response very much. “DO NOT DISRESPECT ME ALEXIANA. I AM YOUR ALPHA!” he said in his Alpha tone while clenching and unclenching his fist. His eyes slowly turning black and back to his ocean blue color. I guess he’s trying to calm his wolf down from me disrespecting him. That is when the second bell rang, meaning I am going to be late for class.

“Great, now I’m going to be late for class because of you, you fucking shithead! Also, you’re not Alpha, yet!” I shouted while running around him trying to get to class. From a distant, I heard a loud growl, oh well, I don’t give a fuck. I have other things that is more important than to deal with the big, bad, playboy wolf.

~Time skip: Lunch time~

After the bell rang, signaling that third period was over, I was the first one out of math class; I hate math with a passion. Finally, its lunch time and while I was on my way to the cafeteria, I see my best friends, Brianna and Brandon, waiting for me outside the entrance of the cafeteria. Both, Brianna and Brandon are mates. I’ve known them since I was five years old and they were six. My brother, Carson, was six at the time too; he is a year older than me and his birthday is tomorrow. All four of us are in our senior year. Brianna and Brandon found out they were mates after their eighteenth birthday and since then, they are inseparable; they’re really a cute couple. Sometimes they could get a little annoying, but do not tell them I said that.

I was pulled out of my thoughts with Brianna’s hand waving in my face and shouting. “HELLO, EARTH TO ALEX! You weren’t paying attention to what I was saying, were you?” Asked Brianna while placing her hands on her hips and raising her right eyebrow.

“Huh? What? Sorry Bri, just some people decided to piss me off.” I sighed as I was pinching the bridge of my nose.

“Let me guess, Jessica, right? I nodded. “What did that disgusting slut do now? Bri curiously asked.

“The bitch shoved my shoulder which caused me to hit my forehead against the door of my locker.” I said feeling myself getting irritated.

Bri, Brandon and I entered the cafeteria and got in line to get our food. We continued with our conversation about the school’s bitch and I then mentioned how I bumped into Kyle, had a little spat and how I was seven minutes late for second period. Brianna started to laugh, clutching her stomach because I mentioned to her what Jessica said about her being the pack’s future Luna. Brianna laughed even harder after I explained to her how Jessica’s confusion looks like she was constipated; I even laughed with Brianna.

After we recovered from our laughing fit, we payed for our food and sat down at our usual table. I noticed Carson was not at school, I guess dad needed him. You see, Carson is next in line for the Beta position and our father is going to hand him the position after Alpha Greg retires and Kyle steps in as Alpha. So basically, that’ll happen next month.

I was pulled out of my thoughts by having water poured on my head. I got up from my seat and turned around to face Jessica. “DO YOU HAVE A FUCKING DEATH WISH, BITCH?” I yelled feeling my anger slowly rising.

Jessica glared at me and said, “I’m not afraid of you or your empty threats, you stupid slut!”

All of a sudden, I started laughing. I laughed so hard, I was clutching my stomach while tears were rolling down my cheeks. The entire cafeteria was silent, except for my laughter and everyone were focused on me and the current scene unfolding in front of them.

“Me a SLUT? That’s funny. Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Actually, don’t answer that because I already know the answer. No, you do not look at yourself in the mirror because you’re too busy fucking every guy that looks appealing to you. Also, my threats are never empty because I know how to back them up and I always win.” I said stating the facts. I guess the slut didn’t like my response because she started to glare at me even harder - if that’s even possible. After my little comment, I hear everyone in the cafeteria laughing their asses off, including my best friends.

“How – Jessica was about to speak, but Brianna cut her off, “LISTEN HERE YOU DISGUSTING, DISEASE-INFECTED SLUT! WHY DON’T YOU GO THE FUCK AWAY, AND LEAVE US ALONE! MATTER OF FACT, WHY DON’T YOU DO BEST AND GO FIND SOMEONE TO SPREAD YOUR LEGS OPEN? AND USE A CONDOM WHILE YOU’RE AT IT!” The left corner of Bri’s lips slowly rising until it was full smirk.

Everyone in the cafeteria loudly roared in laughter, including me and I heard some say, “Oooh, Jessica just got roasted!” or “Oooo, burn.” I even heard another say, “ewww, Jessica is so disgusting. She shouldn’t even be in this pack.”

Jessica was really pissed and her face was red as a tomato. The last thing she said before she stormed out of the cafeteria was, “this isn’t over, you will regret this.”

After Jessica’s outburst, everybody started to calm down and the atmosphere was peaceful again.

~Time skip: after school~

Finally school was over for the day and I guess you can say my day was a little eventful. After the cafeteria fiasco with Jessica, Brianna, Brandon and I left the cafeteria to go to our classes. Obviously, like usual, the rest of my day at school was slow and boring. I met up with my friends at the front of the school and told them that I’ll text them later after I get home.

I walked to the school’s parking lot towards my beautiful beast and drove home. After I got home, I walked towards the kitchen to see my mom at the stove cooking dinner.

“Hi sweetie, how was your day?” asked my mom as she turned her head towards me and smiled.

“Hey mom, it was okay, like usual.” I said smiling at my mom.

“That’s good honey. Dinner will be ready in half an hour and your father will be home soon with Carson.” Said my mom as she went back to tend to the food on the stove. I just said okay and walked upstairs to my bedroom and sat on my bed and started doing my homework.

~30 minutes later~

I finally finished my homework and at the same time, I hear my mom yell from the kitchen that dinner is ready. I went downstairs towards the dining room and saw my dad and Carson already at the table and I greeted them.

During dinner, we all just talked about school, work and a lot of random stuff. I didn’t tell my parents about what exactly happened at school because I don’t want them to worry and I’m pretty sure Carson somewhat knew what happened because he gave me a ‘we’ll talk later’ look and I just nodded.

After dinner, I helped my mom clear the dining table and wash the dishes while Carson put the food away in the fridge. When I was finished, I felt my wolf getting antsy and I know exactly what she wants.

Hey Midnight, do you want to go for a run?

‘OH YES, YES, YES! Please and thank you!’ said my wolf, Midnight, wagging her tail all excitedly. I chuckled a little at her excitement; It was like a child getting all excited to go to the candy store.

‘You’re welcome love.’ I replied.

I went upstairs to my bedroom and walked inside; I went to my walk-in closet and changed into a pair of black shorts, a sports bra and my Nike’s running shoes. I went downstairs towards the living room and told my parents that I’m going out for a run and I’ll be back soon.

“Okay sweetie, be careful and watch out for any rogues.” Said my dad and I just said I will.

As I walk through the kitchen, I saw my brother wiping the counter tops. I asked him if he wanted to come with me for a run and he said yes.

My brother and I walked out through the back door and jogged towards the first line of the trees. My brother went behind one tree, stripped and shifted into his wolf and I went behind a different tree, stripped naked and shifted into my gorgeous jet black wolf.

My wolf, Midnight and Carson’s wolf, Tyson, are both black, but the difference between our wolves is that Midnight’s eye color is blue as to Tyson’s eye color is silver. Both of our wolves are gorgeous and since we both have Beta blood, both of our wolves (besides the Alpha) are bigger than the average wolf and that’s because we all hold power.

~Third person POV~

Once Tyson and Midnight came from behind the trees, they started to run. The wind felt so great and wonderful blowing against their furs. They kept on running for a bit, till Tyson decided to playfully tackle Midnight and nipped on her ear gently. They chased each other for a bit and found a little pond they did not know it existed.

They were mesmerized at how beautiful the pond was and the surrounding area were. Both Tyson and Midnight stopped in front of the pond and drank some water to quench their thirst. Then, they lied down on the ground next to the pond and put their heads on their paws and relaxed for a bit.

Once both wolves were content and satisfied, they ran back towards the trees where they left their clothes at, shifted back into their human form, got dressed and went back into the house.

~Alexianna POV~

After Carson and I went back inside the house and up the stairs, I told him goodnight and see him tomorrow. Once inside my bedroom, I went to grab my PJs and went to the bathroom to take a nice, hot steamy shower.

When I was done taking a shower, I dried my body and towel dried my hair, got dressed and went straight towards my bed. After my head hit my pillow, sleep came quickly and I was instantly sound asleep.
