I'm the Alpha's Mate Apparently

Prologue

I had finally gained the courage to run away from my pack, and while I was glad to be free from my Alpha life as a Rogue wasn’t as easy as I thought that it would be. If I was discovered on pack land, I could be killed. But I had successfully managed to avoid being caught so I was fairly confident in my ability to stay hidden and if I was somehow discovered, I guess I would have to deal with it when the time came.

Mainly, I was just happy that I had escaped Alpha Byron. My wolf yipped in agreement as I crossed the border into No Man’s Land. It wasn’t possible for anyone to attack me here, because this wasn’t pack land and the residing pack had no jurisdiction here. There would be other Rogues, but I was confident that no one would attack me. Not if they were regular wolves anyways because I radiated power and they would have to be stupid to try to attack me.

I lay down on the ground, resting my head on my paws and whining softly. Even though I was glad that I had left the pack I was upset that I had to leave Lake. Lake was the person who I could always count on and now…Now she wasn’t here anymore. I would miss her. Other than Lake, I would only miss my sisters and my brother.

Now all I had to do was focus on avoiding the patrols from Red Ridge and make sure not to accidentally wander into Twilight Glade territory. Easy.

For the next three months I successfully lived in No Man’s Land and avoided detection. During that time no Rogues had bothered me and all was well. I lifted my head, my eyes blinking against the harsh light of the sun that was just starting to rise. I was still a little groggy but I managed to climb to my feet, my eyesight clearing and my eyes resting on a Rogue who was standing a few feet away from me.

I stepped around the doe that I had killed and bared my teeth in a snarl. This was my kill. He couldn’t have it. The Rogue snarled and took a step forward which I mirrored. Then, without any warning he leapt at me. I tried to move out of the way but I wasn’t quick enough. His teeth locked onto my side and I whimpered as the skin split and blood appeared on the surface. I snapped at him, barely catching his muzzle and backed up a few steps. This Rogue was a lot stronger than I thought that he was. He was probably the descendant of an Alpha or Beta then and I figured out after a few more blows that I wasn’t a match for him.

I backed up a few more steps, lowering my eyes. I was bowled over by him, and his teeth were bared over my neck. He was at least twice my size and so throwing him off would be no easy task. But if I didn’t get him off of me, I would die. With a great amount of effort I managed to bite his paw which stunned him and allowed me to shake him off.

I continued backing up, keeping my eyes on him warily. I could only run towards Twilight Glade and I wasn’t about to go back into pack territory. I had left my pack for a reason and I wasn’t about to go back to a pack. I snarled louder hoping that maybe I could somehow dissuade him but his snarls grew even louder until they were almost deafening.

I had to concede defeat if I wanted to live and still remain here in No Man’s Land. But my wolf wasn’t having it. She swiftly took control despite my protests and struggling against her and urged me to run towards Twilight Glade.

No! I shouted, I’m not going back to a pack! Go back!

No, she refuted, There is something in Twilight Glade that will protect us. We will go there.

I growled a little before reminding her that it would take us days to get there but she didn’t care. She was determined on getting to Twilight Glade. Fine then, I would just bide my time and then when I was healed I would head back to No Man’s Land. 

That’s a promise.
