It has been over a year since that bitch walked into this school, stealing my future away. That was supposed to be me hanging off his arm, kissing him, and planning our future together. I gave him everything, my love, and then my virginity after we were together for six months. I was promised to be in his life for the rest of our lives, dying of very old age when he changed me to his species. All of that changed when that damn bitch walked into our class last winter being a transfer student from another pack. He always told me he would reject his true mate taking me as the potential mate to put all of our dreams and planning into action. His mother had started training me on handling pack activities being a Luna, how to help out pack members when the Alpha was busy, and all the responsibility that would come with the title. The day she walked in, he dropped me like yesterday’s news going straight to her, kissing those lips in front of the whole class. I watched in horror as he did this while everyone in the class turned to see me lose my heart that day. Since then, I have built a cage, walls, and everything I can around my heart to become a broken person without feelings anymore. I know that I am human, but why does it have to be like this?
“Hey, girl!” Summer waves her hand at my face snapping me out of the trance I was just in. “If you glare at the back of his head any longer, it will not burn a hole in it. Damn, I thought you had moved on from him.”
Summer is a werewolf that is the daughter of the beta. Noah’s dad is the Alpha of the Sunset Ridge Pack, then Summer’s dad is his Beta.
Giving her a small smile, “Sorry, I was thinking. I can not believe all that has happened since last year. Are you going to the winter dance at the end of the week?”
Dawn plops down on the other side of me with her cup of blood and a massive tray of food. “No, we are going to my place for a real party.”
Looking over at her, I raise my eyebrow. “What are you talking about?”
“The Vampire King is throwing his son a birthday party Saturday. Both of you are invited since it is an invite-only party too. I have the clearance to bring five people” she points at each of us with her long skinny finger.
Dawn is the daughter of a high advisor to the King himself. Her dad can see the future; he is also a very successful businessman, so the King looks to him for multiple things to help run his kingdom. Everyone here is wealthy or beyond rich; that is the only way you can live in Sunset Valley. Both the King and the current Alpha have to approve you to move into this community. They work very closely to ensure the packs do not wreak havoc on anyone here. We all live in peace, each racing knowing what the other is.
“Come on, girl, you used to come to the packhouse all the time for parties. We need to get you back to your old self. This hole you have dug and buried yourself in is very depressing. Our best friend is no longer here, just this shell of a person we call our friend,” Summer pleads with me.
Taking a long breath, I know that I have wrapped myself up in a cocoon, not wanting to get close to another person ever again. I slowly nod at their sad faces knowing they miss the old me. “Fine, I will go for a few hours.”
Dawn laughs. “This is a huge ordeal. He is turning five hundred, so it is a full-blown party. Both of you will also spend the night with me for the weekend because this party will go well into the morning hours. We will be going to bed around dawn, so you will have to stay with me in the castle’s extra rooms.”
Dropping my head into my hand, knowing I didn’t want to do this, I used to be big into the party scene, but I didn’t do it since I lost my heart that day. My whole life, attitude, and demeanor changed that day. These two have been trying to pull me out of the hole that I dug under me, then basically jumped into not wanting to come back into the real world. Looking up at them, they are smiling, knowing she has me in a corner that I can not get out of. “What do we need to have for this party of yours?”
Her smile grows more extensive, if that was even possible. “It is a full formal dress event. We need brand new dresses and shoes; to get our hair and nails done. You will need to spend the weekend with me; we will get our dresses after school today. Saturday morning, all of us will be getting the best done with ourselves. We will be looking so hot, plus it will be fun also.”
Groaning to myself, I turn back to glare at his head one more time as she drapes herself all over him like a blanket. Dawn pulls me out of the chair with her strength as we walk to put our trays up and then head to the lockers. Getting the rest of the books that I need for the following two classes putting up the two that I have in my hand. We don’t ever have homework here, making it so nice; our teachers ensure all our work is done before leaving the class. Their excuse is that they have other things to do when school lets out since most of them here also hold some rank in either the packhouse or castle. The omegas are at the bottom of the chain but are treated with the utmost respect; they do the cooking or cleaning of the kitchen. Each pack member is responsible for their rooms; they don’t have servants to wash their things. The castle is different; he has maids that clean the rooms, cooks that make all the meals, and give their blood freely to each of the vampires. No one is forced to do anything they don’t want to, but if you don’t donate blood as a human, you are put to work in the castle to help with daily chores. Each person has a job then they are done for the day. There are three shifts of cooks that make each meal; the maids are assigned one room to clean each day, so life is easy. They are paid for their work which is a reasonable sum, but most do it because they are bored and have nothing else to do. Being rich is nice, but after staying in the house daily, some people get bored and seek jobs to fill their empty lives.
“Sky! Come on, girl, we are going to be late if you stand there looking into that locker any longer” Dawn punches my shoulder.
“Coming,” shutting the door with a clang, then taking off down the hall with them to our next class together.
