Chapter 5

“So what do you remember from two days ago??“, Alex asked.

I looked at him in shock, “I was out for two days???“, I asked.

Alex shrugged, “You kinda did. And answer, please?”

I shook my head and look down on my feet, thinking of what happened before I passed out. I heard a howl, but before that... Wolves. I remembered wolves fighting. Black, grey, white wolves were fighting.

I looked up to Alex and shrug, “I remember wolves were fighting. And I heard a howl before I passed out, hurting my head”, I said.

Alex nodded ,“Well, you’re not wrong...“, He mumbled.

I looked at him in shock, but we both still walking through the large cabin. I spoke, “All those things... Those... Those are real?“, I asked.

Alex sighed, “Yeah, those are real things”, he said.

I didn’t say anything, so did he. When we head out, I was amazed where we are. In a huge cabin, There are dock houses around the lake, and it was quiet. It’s very quiet and peaceful. I looked over to Alex and he spoke, “Is this okay?“, he asked.

I shrug, “I’m okay with it”, I said.

Alex nodded and he sat down on the bench, on the porch of the cabin. I sat next to him and I looked out to the lake and I notice that he is looking at me. He sighed, “I’m sorry”, he said.

I shook my head, “I don’t know what are you talking about”, I said.

He sighed, “I don’t want to keep you here, but... You can’t leave too. I’m trying to explain things to you, I will if you let me”, he said.

I nod and a few minutes later I spoke, “Okay. I’ll let you explain”, I said.

he nodded and he took a deep breath before spoke, “All those things you saw, all those things you believed when you were younger. Those wolves you saw were real, everything you believed in those days... Those things are real”, he said while looking at me in the eyes.

I shook my head and Alex held my hand, before he look me in the eyes. I gasp when his eyes turned bright blue. He was the white wolf, he turned into that wolf. I shook my head, “Oh my God...“, I whispered.

He sighed, “I’m sorry, I should have told you”, he said.

I sighed and shook my head, “I need some time”, I said before I got inside the cabin again. I head upstairs and I got inside the previous room, just sit on the bed while I look out to the window of the forest.

I stood up before I washed my face again. I head out of the bathroom and snuggle myself on the bed and take a quick nap for myself. Of course, it was hard to accept the truth and all, but hey... At least you take a nap before you take it all in.


I opened my eyes and saw Alex standing on the balcony while on his phone, shirtless. I sighed and sat up, Alex looked over to me and come inside the room. Bending down on the floor and looked at me, “How are you feeling?“, he asked.

I shrug, “I’m okay”, I said.

He nodded and looked at me before he sat down on the bed before he holds my cheek and he lean in closer. Our lips brushed and he kissed my lips and pull me closer to him. He pulled the shirt I’m wearing and he lay me down before continue to kiss me.

Then I realized something before I gently push him away and he looks at me. I shook my head, “I’m sorry. I’m... I was... That wasn’t..-”

“Yeah, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that without telling you everything, it was my fault and I should have given you more space, you just woke up from passing out”, he explained.

I chuckled awkwardly before he helped me up and I cover myself with the shirt I wore before and we just sat there awkwardly. He did looked away before I wear the shirt back on and when I’m done, I gave him a quick poke before he can loo at me again and he gave me a smile.

“Hey, Alex?“, someone barge into the room and Alex quickly cover me with his body.

Alex sighed, “Yes, Chris?“, he asked.

“The pack is here. We’ll start as soon as you get down”, he said before closing the door.

Alex sighed and looked over to me before he kissed my cheek and I looked at him before he spoke, “I better get down. I’ll see you soon”, he said before leaving me on the bed alone.

I sighed before someone came into the room and smiled at me, “Hey. I was told by Alex to be here with you”, she said.

I nod and I smiled, “Hi, I’m Audrey”, I said.

“I’m Ingrid, I’m Chris’s mate”, she said while smiling at me.

I shook my head, “What?“, I asked.

Ingrid chuckled before she sat down on the bed before she explained it for me, “A mate. A werewolf mate, Alex did tell you didn’t he?“, Ingrid asked.

I shook my head, “No...“, I mumbled.

Ingrid thought before she spoke, “For starters, a mate is a pair for a werewolf. In this case, you are Alex’s mate. If he doesn’t want you as his mate, there is no way you’re here. He chose you for some reason, but... I have no idea. Maybe because he's your brother's best friend? That's why he knows both of you very well", she said, but I didn't comment anything. I just keep my mouth shut because I don't understand a bit about this world.

I looked out of the window and saw Alex guide the meeting and it really changed how I see him, for me who is still 18 years old, this is very odd but... It felt warm in my chest every time he's near me, he talks to me, he looks at me. In this case, I feel like I've known him for a long time. But that wasn't the case...
