“Mate.” Zoey said in excitement. As I was just about to introduce myself the man ran away from me. I felt sad. “Zoey did we do something wrong?” I said in a sad voice. Zoey didn’t reply she just whimpered. I walk back into my room closing the door behind me. I sit on my bed with tears in my eyes. “Mate doesn’t want us.” Zoey says in an almost crying voice. “Maybe he wants us. Maybe he is just surprised to see us.” I said in a calm tone. A minute later someone knocks on my door again. “Come in.” My voice cracked a little bit. Jonny opens the door and rushes to my side when he seen a tear roll down my cheek. “Izzy what’s wrong?” He says in a worried tone. “I found my mate. Uncle Jonny. But when I went to introduce myself he ran away.” I was a sniffing mess by now. Jonny starts to tens up. “Maybe he just needs to think about what happened.” Without a word I just nod my head.
It’s been a week since I’ve seen my mate. I had a feeling that he has been avoiding me. At midnight every night I kept getting this horrible pain in my chest. I didn’t know what it was. I tried to ask Zoey but she just kept whimpering. I was currently laying in my bed when I heard a knock on my door. I get up and answer the door. When I opened it I am meet with my mate. Before I could even get a single word out he raised his hand to stop me. “ I, Noah Waters, future Alpha of the Waters Ridge Pack, reject you as my mate and my Luna.” I was shocked. I wanted to beg him to take it back. But Zoey stopped me and said “Accept his rejection. We don’t need a cheater for a mate.” Zoey was angry. “Is that why I was feeling that pain?” I asked. “Yes. Our mate has been sleeping with others.” I was now getting mad.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. When I opens my eyes I spoke in a small voice. “I, Isabella Black, accept your rejection.” I felt our bond break but, it wasn’t as painful as I thought. Without looking him in the eye I closed my door. I only took a few steps before I fell to the ground. I pulled my knees to my chest and cried. I don’t wanna be in this house anymore. I thought to myself. That’s when a thought came to my mind. I quickly open my personal link to Jonny. “Uncle Jonny. Are you still awake?” I said in a sad tone. The next thing I know is someone bursts into my room. I look over to the door and see Jonny in my door. He rushes over to me and wraps me up in his arms. “What’s wrong baby girl? Who hurt you?” Jonny says in a worried voice.
I say nothing for a little while I just cried on his shoulder. After I calmed down a little I looked up at Jonny and said “He rejected me.” In a calm voice Jonny asks “Who rejected you?” I replied with a smaller voice “Noah.” It was like the straw that broke the camels back. Jonny let me go and stormed out of my room. Unsure of what he was going to do I followed him. After following Jonny down the stairs, down a long hallway, he stopped at a big door. He bangs on the door that’s when I heard Nate’s voice “Enter.” Both Jonny and I enter the room. I look around the room and see Nate sitting behind a big oak desk. So this must be Uncle Nate’s office.
“Jonny. Why do you look like your about kill someone?” I heard a sweet voice come from the couch in the corner. I look over to see a tall woman with short black hair and green eyes. Once she saw me she quickly stood up and rushed over to me. She placed both of her hands on my shoulders with a sweet smile she said “You must be Isabella. I’m Luna Nova Waters. My husband told me you were a beauty but I didn’t want to believe him until I actually saw you.” Before I could get a word out she wraps me in a tight hug. Nate let’s out a small chuckle. “Okay honey. That’s enough. You might break her.” She finally released me and I could breathe again. Nate walks over to Luna Nova and I and says “Why don’t the four of us sit down and figure out why Isabella’s eyes are red and why Jonny is mad.” We head over to the couch and take a seat. I am placed between Nate and Nova, Jonny sits across from us.
“Now then. Jonny why are you mad?” Nate says in a calm tone. “It’s because your son rejected Izzy as his mate.” Jonny says through clenched teeth. Both Nate and Nova look at me. I lower my head as I start to feel the hot tears in my eyes. They both put their arms around me and pulled me into a warm hug. Nova tucks some hair behind my ear and says “I’m so sorry sweetie. Is there anything that we can do?” I lift my head with a sniffle and ask “Can I please stay somewhere else besides here? Having to smell his sent every time is making me.....” I’m cut off by a very bad pain in my chest. I let out a blood curdling scream making everyone jump. With a terrified look on their faces only one person spoke. “Izzy. What’s going on sweetheart?” The sweet voice came from Nova. “Please make the pain stop!” I yell with tears in my eyes.
After what seemed like hours the pain finally subsided. “Zoey what the hell was that awful pain?” I asked. “Our mate bond has fully broken. He has marked another.” Zoey says in a pissed off tone. With wide eyes I look over to Nova and send her a message through a private mindlink. “Your son has marked another. The mate bond that me and him shared is now fully broken. Luna. Can you please hug me in a motherly way?” After my eyes cleared I could see nothing but anger and disappointment in Nova’s eyes. She walks over to me and hugs me in the way I have asked her. “Please call me Ant Nova.” She whispers in my ear. That’s when I let out a loud sob. “Bella.” I look over to Nate and Jonny. Jonny looks at me with fatherly love in his eyes and says “Why don’t you come and stay with me.” I nod my head. Nova released me from the hug and smiled at me.
I walk over to Jonny and say “Can we go home now?”
