Into the woods

Today we honor our family that was lost during the blood war .

Long ago our kingdom went to battle after our king sent someone murder the blood king.

8 years we fought and lost so many people, all because of human greed.

It was march 20 2089 my mother sent me to go grab some medicine for my grandmother .

She told me to always follow the trail. But I wondered off and didn't get home until night.

When I got home I was met by a horrifying sight. The village was attacked by wolves and half of our homes was set on fire.

My father ,mother, and grandmother was killed that day and my house was set on fire along with everything I held close to my heart.

Each dayin the morning I go to the wall that once stood tall, to protect us from the kingdom of the north. Now that I look at it the wall is crumbled with trees growing in its place.

The woods used to be burnt, with the land naked as far as the eye could see. But over time the elves cast a spell among the forest the caused the trees to grow back faster.

All you can see know is darkness within the woods. No one has dared to go on the other side due to the treaty that was placed.

This was our punishment for the pain we affiliated upon their kingdom. Once we realized we couldn't win we turn over our king.

We struck a deal with devil as my grandmother would always say. If any human dared to cross the woods they would remain on the other side.

There was no turning back from this, you became a prisoner of the other side.

Every 6 years the alpha king would come.and make sure the rules was followed. Time passed houses was rebuilt and I was taken in by the new king .

He was kind and made me feel at home, even when my heart was emptied. Today I was helping everyone get ready for the festival so I could plan my escape.

I couldn't stand the pity look I would get from everyone. My parents was advisers with the new king so news of their death spread like wild fire. I was just tired of being treated like a broken doll.

As night fall we set at the table alpha cain had just entered the court. His hair was jet black and fell to his shoulders. His eyes was green like a fresh cut grass. He towered over me as if he was looking into my soul.

This man made me want to wrap my legs around his tall body. His suit seem to hug is body as if his buttons of his jacket was about to pop.

He reminded me of a hot lumberjack man.

I didnt realize that I was staring to long until the alpha spoke.

" I heard they call you red" He stated while looking at me .

I could feel my cheeks blush with embarrassment from being caught.

" Sorry sir my daughter can be a little shy at times." Billy apologized.

I can't believe I just got caught undressing him with my own eyes.

He stared at me for a second then looked away.

"Thats fine sometimes I have that affect on women." He said with a straight face.

This man seems to have a big ego that needs to be crushed. Also why does this guy never smile.

Once the tension was gone from the ball room, everyone went back to talking and dancing.

"Red why don't you go check your bed for a gift I have you, while I catch up to rowland for a second." Billy pointed out.

This is great I could sneak out while the party is going. I rushed up stairs to find a letter sitting up top. " your grandmother told me to give you this when you turned 21 happy birthday red."

I ripped away at the wrap with tears running down my eyes. In a box reviled a long red cloak that hung to the ground.

At the body was a gold thread with celtic patterns in it. My gran gran would wear this when telling me stories of the big bad wolf.

In side the cloak was threads of words with our family crest. "Never stray from the path because danger lies ahead."

I sat there crying for what feels like forever. Once I got myself together I wrote a note to billy saying my goodbyes.

I made my way down the stairs and out through the garden. Once I made my way to the wall I recited a Light spell.

As soon as my foot touch the ground the atmosphere changed. A chill went through my body like someone was watching me.

After an hour I set up camp to get some sleep. Slowly my body started drift into a dream like state.

The wind gave me comfort on this foreign land .

Suddenly I was awaken by a loud howl that shook the ground. I got up and started to run like my life depended on it.

I could hear the howls get closer in closer. As my heart was beating from my chest.

I saw someone dash past me.out the corner of my eye.

"I wouldnt take another step if I was you." A voice growled.

I spun myself around to see who I was talking to. "Who's There ?" My voice shaked.

Out of the shadows appeared a giant werewolf with a shine in his eyes. This wolf was bigger then any alpha I had seen before.

The wolf circled around me as if I was his prey. His growls was letting me know to stay in place.

His green eyes glowed in the shadow as he stepped from the darknwss.

His paws was huge with sharp claws that could break through armor.

His ears pointed like a bloodhound demon that came from hell.

His shiny black coat reflected from the camp fire. There was a large collar around his neck as if he had broken free from somewhere.

My body was shaking ,while my heart was racing out my chest.

"Didnt your mother ever tell you to never travel the woods alone." The alpha questioned "the woods are full of dangerous things." He hissed.

He sniffed the air then a crooked smile appeared on his face. He creeped closer to get a better view of my face.

"Maybe i should take a bite and make you my mate." He growled

"You lay one hand one me I'm cutting your wolf dick off got it mutt." I angrily hissed.

"Get her jack" he commanded to someone behind me .

"Who is jac-" I started to asked. Then I felt a sharp needle go into my kneck.

My eyes started to drift as i could feel the drugs start to take over. "Alpha we got her " someone shouted as my eyes closed.

everything went black as the darkness consumed me unto the night. It felt like I slept forever it was nice to finally feel at peace.

Then In my dream I heard the shower running I jumped up remembering that I didnt have a shower.

The water dripped down his black coursed hair as while he cured . And the drops slowly made their way to his body .

he took his towel and dried his chest off. He slowly made his way down to his Well defined abs.

He had a towel that was wrapped around his hips were his v line came into view.

"Are you done staring at me sweetheart" he asked in a steep voice.

"Why the fuck did you drug me" I snapped "I know the kingdoms law you could have just asked me to come with you." I pointed out.

"Well we couldn't have you running off again now can we ." He implied while getting his cloths on.

"Stay here and don't leave" the alpha harshly ordered then he left. What can I possibly do within this room, and how did he know that I left home.

Alpha rowland's POV:

I shouldn't have snapped at her.

But her questions was irritating me. This situation the best I could do right now to keep her safe.

Even when I seem coldhearted sometimes I've felt love, I've feel anger and hurt. In the dinning room I could hear screaming and yelling. I called the second in command to see what is the problem.

"Jackson what is the damn problem here I smell at least 50 people at the line." Alpha Rowland proclaimed.

"Alpha they're here to get a girl name Red back. Guessing the one that crossed yesterday sir, what should I tell them."beta Jackson replied.

"damn that girl is starting trouble and she hasn't even been here long," Jackson thought.

He walks in to find the angry mob calm and scared. They should be frightened of coming to my land.

Their leader looks tired, worn down but strong. He steps forward with a respectful bow.

"Hello, Alpha we don't mean to intrude we just notice this morning that one of our fellow girls was missing, and was wondering if she may have wondered over here? "Billy questioned."

"Your fellow people knows the rules if you cross on this cursed land you must stay. "his voice seemed with authority.

" you all will return back to your kingdom, and let this be your final warning" he snapped with frustration.

Reds POV:

They're looking for me but the only one that cared for me was the king.

The alpha seemed to take control of the situation in a matter of seconds. His green eyes show dominants and command as he tells them to leave quietly.

The king whispers something which causes his eyes to change from Angier to sad. He shakes his head with the agreement and says something back.

Then he sniffs the air then turns to the door which I was hiding. His face is so sexy, shit I'm in trouble. I run back to my room or at least I tried.

But on the way back I see a library so I sneak in and lock the door. It was so huge I could stay here for days. Since I'm here I might as well do my research on these creatures.

Who knew werewolves were born with mates that are destined to be with them.

So many mysteries which is yet to be found out in this history book. But once I got to one part it was torn out but it said, steel family. What happened to this family. Why were they taken from the book?

As I go to turn to the back of the book the door comes flying open. "Didn't I tell you to stay in the room. "he angrily asked. "Well, I got bored and didn't have anything to do. "I stated

His eyes turn black with anger as if I frustrated him.

I went to go walk past him when he grabbed me by the arm. "you didn't answer me." He stated.

"Yes sir. "I snapped and snatched my arm back. After that I tried to avoid him at all cost.

A week past after the grabbing incident and I decided it was time to come out and meet the chef who has been sneaking me food.

When I reached the kitchen, I find this beautiful woman who was cooking." darling you finally decided to come out of hiding. "she smiled.

"I'm Rowland's mother a pleasure to meet you, dear you can call me emily." She stated.

She made me feel happy I couldn't help but to smile as I was shaking her hand.

Why does that name sound familiar. "don't pay my son any mind he can be scary and intimidating sometimes.

"he's been like that since he lost his dad at 18."

I felt sad so I hugged her "sorry for you lose ma'am. "I said.

I guess I shocked her because it took her a while to hug me back. Then a group of people came in.

" who is this beauty "another beta with a charming smile hinted." Bill behave will you" a girl next to him laughed.

"My name is mag this but the head is our beta Jackson which you already met and his mate Sally. "

"Nice to meet you, what's your name," she asked while shaking my hand. "

my name is red nice meeting you too." "can someone please tell me why your alpha is such an" I started "such a what "a dominant voice?

Everyone was giggling and started whistling then looked away.

I smirked "nothing"

I sniffed the room it started to smell like the fresh breeze of oak trees. The smell got stronger as Rowland got closer and closer.

Why does he smell so good I wish I could just cuddle him with hugs all day? What in blue blazes did that thought come from I question myself. Rowland's mom just smiled and shook her head.

Somehow, I found myself looking at his lips. He wouldn't mind if I kissed him one good time. As he was talking to me it felt as if I was stuck in place.

As soon as he stopped talking I kissed him on the lips. It sent a warm tingly feeling throughout my body.

I started paying attention to my surroundings, I noticed his chest rising and down.

As if he was trying to control himself. Then suddenly, he looked very angry. His eyes were changing from one color to another.

Then he looked at me with hate in his eyes. "What do you think you are doing?" he snared. I sat there speechless, and somewhat shocked at the way he was reacting.

"I'm sorry i just seem to- " I whispered, but I was cut short before I could finish.

"I don't care what happed just keep your distance " he stopped me. "Jack send me the attack report for this month and make sure no one disturbs me." He commanded.

"and from now on you stay away from me is that clear?" he commanded. My chest felt as if I was stabbed, for a second I couldn't breathe.

He grabbed my arm with anger." I won't repeat myself and you will answer me when I'm talking to you." "Do you understand me?" he roared.

I snatched my arm back which he bruised. "Yes alpha" I hissed.

Everyone looked at me with pity, his mother looked sad. When I couldn't stand it, I rushed to my room. I was mad fumed with anger, with hate.

Tonight, I will leave, there's no point in being here. When dark came everyone was asleep.

I quietly walked out the door making sure no one would hear me. The moon was full and the breeze of the air felt good.

The freedom I thought finally I can go back and live in peace. Suddenly, I felt a pain shoot through my whole body.

No no this can't be happening I thought what if they hear. Trying to obtain my scream as it seems as my body was strangely changing.

All I could hear was my body snapping and reshaping itself. My hands became paws and my vision became sharper.

"No no no this can't be I'm a white wolf. "I pointed out. "Calm your tits down girl it's not bad," another voice said.

Now I'm going crazy there's a voice in my head. "I'm your wolf stupid we have a lot of catching up to do." she rolled her eyes.

"my name is aliyah by the way our mate is coming" she warned. There was a loud howl indicating that he was very close.

Bet your ass I did run I ran as fast as I could. From the corner of my eye, the beta ran into me with full force. He looked so small than before.

I growled at him in a way to tell him to back the fuck up. To my surprise he did, but just as I was about to run again I was sacked to the ground.

Who the hell just did that I went to turn around and growl lord I thought it was Jackson. He looked shocked then anger came upon his face.

"shift now" he commanded. For a second I hesitated then I shifted back. "Why would you run from our mate?" Alyiah questioned.

"Shut up he's not our mate." I hissed. she whimpered then I couldn't hear her anymore. He looked pissed as if he could rip my head off.

"I'll deal with you when we get home Jack to take her home I'll deal with her later." he directed.

Jack bowed his head and we started to head back home. No one said anything on our way back. When we got inside the alpha's mom came running towards me with tears in her eyes.

She grabbed me and hugged me tightly." you scared me darling don't ever do that again, we thought a rogue got you" "you're like a daughter that I never had." she admitted.

Deep down I felt bad cause I started to tear up." oh dear don't cry it's okay I understand why you have done it". She acknowledged.

"Why does he hate me so much," I screamed.

"Sometimes people put a mask upon themselves so no one can see how bad their hurting." she minds linked me.

Once I stopped crying she let me go. When the beta came into the mind link the Luna. "Luna tonight, red shifted and she's an alpha." He stated.

I could hear their conversation and I smiled to myself. Then I finally put the puzzle together. My father had to be from the steel family. A while back I remember an alpha stepped down because his mate was human.

Maybe I'll ask Luna for a better time. Before the alpha gets back I rush to my room and lock myself in.

Alpha Rowland's POV:

I runs through the border with my beta jack to make sure no one has crossed to get to the other side. His mind drifting back to red which causes him to become angry.

She tried to leave after I ordered her not to do so. How could she be knowing that I needed her the pack needed her?

I know I can be cold-hearted but an order is an order. She will be punished for what she has done tonight. She wasn't thinking about what danger she had put the kingdom into.

"Go tell the pack to return to the house I have a business to handle." Rowland commanded. "yes alpha" Bill replied.

Red's POV:

As we got home everyone turned in for the night. Maybe he forgot or maybe he'll be tired for the night.

"Well he did warn us didn't he but you had to be hardheaded." snapped alyiah.

"What's the point of being here if your mate doesn't love you?" I questioned her.

"He will grow to love you in due time trust me," she promised.

" He doesn't love only himself." I hissed.

Alpha Rowland's POV

Rowland listened in on the conversation when he heard her arguing with her wolf.

While his wolf has been begging him to go easy on their mate.

Is he incapable to love or be kind as everyone thought of him each day?

Even his mate thought of him as a monster in such away. He felt a pain of sadness which he hasn't felt in a while. Then he quickly pushed back just as fast as it appeared. When he went to go open the door it wouldn't budge.

"Red open the door." He demanded.

Red's POV

Did I want to open the door to receive the punishment no but I'll rather get it over?

As soon as I get up to open the door he comes walking in looking like the big bad wolf.

"I don't like waiting when I tell you to do something I want it done you're only pissing me off." He calmly noted.

Then he turned around and lock the door with the key he uses to open it.

"you know what time it is so don't try to run or scream because nobody will hear you." he smirked. "you put the pack and danger and this kingdom and you will be punished wisely," Rowland stated.

The closer he came the more I took a step back. Strangely he was looking at me like he was stalking his prey. That I had finally caught in his hidden trap.

I squealed as he grabbed me quickly, and set me across his knee.

My mind was racing but my body was turned on. As he lifted my nightgown I was too embarrassed that he would see my bikini underwear on.

His hand sends chills through my body as he slid my underwear down. With full force, his hand came down on my butt.

"Don'" he hissed.

I was mad but there wasn't nothing I could do but take this ass whooping. "yes sir" I snapped.

Strangely this made me want more spankings but that wasn't something I wasn't going to tell him.

As far as I knew he was the one that couldn't stay away from me. Just as I was getting up, he set me in his lap.

"I'm not done with you yet, you almost put the pack in danger."

"let's hope we won't have to repeat this situation," he smirked.

Let's see if he finds this funny. I smacked the smile right off his face, he didn't even see it coming.

I went walking towards the door when I was jerked back by my arm.

His eyes were a dark emerald color which indicated he was mad as hell. At the time, I could care less I hate him as much as he hated me.

"mate don't test me you already broke one important rule."

I snatched my arm back quickly. "let's get this clear I'm not damn rag doll you can just push around. you made that very clear that you didn't like me ."

"Why cant you just leave me alone, is that to much to ask for" I screamed In his face.

"second, you touch me again I will kick your sorry ass "I never wanted a cold-hearted mate anyway, so why would I want to be mated to you" I growled.

His chest was going up and down his wolf was trying to get out.

Alyiah whispered, "take it back why you are being so cold hearted "

"are you trying to get us killed?" She asked while shivering.

Then in a split second, he had this creepy smile upon his face. He took a step towards me I took a step back. I don't like this one bit.

When my back hit the door, he trapped me with his arms.

"you just don't learn do you, I guess I have to teach you who is in charge here."

He grabbed my face and forced me to look at him. Then he kissed me and pressed me against him.

Within a quick second, he went to my neck leaving hickeys.

I tried to sustain my moans I refuse to give him satisfaction.

Out of shock, he bites down on the side of my neck. No, he can't he didn't even ask me how could he.

He lets go of me with a flash of anger in his eyes. "now you're stuck with this cold-hearted mate." he snapped.

He left and locked the door behind him. he roared "beta Jackson make sure no one let her out until she learns some respect and manners."

"you can't keep me in here forever you bastard." "I will never love you, you hear me" I screamed.

Slowly I drifted in and out to I fell asleep. Time passed as my anger grew and grew in the passing hour. I can't wait to leave this place.
