Chapter 4 - Rejection
Chapter 4 - Rejection
When I woke up from the dream, I found myself in my room at pack house which made me realize that it was not a fucking dream... fuck, I got a mate.. I am trying to digest this news when suddenly door of my room opened and ethan entered.
“you are joking” he said in complete horror while I was still trying to digest the happiness of finally having a mate “you can’t be my mate.” he said in disgust and I flinched. “how can moon goddess be so cruel.” he said while pacing.. that’s not how I supposed it to be.
“listen ethan” I tried to make him understand.
“it’s alpha for you” he growled and his eyes flicked between brown and black. His wolf is trying to take control from him.
“sorry alpha” I was trying to control myself but his behavior is hurting me.
“pathetic” he sneered.. “I Ethan Smith son of alpha aiden and luna Olivia of blue moon pack, reject you Aadhya as my mate and future luna of this pack.” As soon these words left his mouth a searing pain pierced my heart. I screamed in agony and clutched my heart hard to stop the pain. I am feeling like someone poured lava on my heart, I am unable to see anything because of tears but I heard ethan painful groans. I know I am foolish to feel like that but still inspite of being in so much pain I still want to go to ethan and soothe him. I slowly crawled from the bed while clutching my heart and went towards the place where ethan is sitting on the ground while clutching his heart.
I put my hand on his hand and instantly I felt sparks that traveled down my body “are you alright ethan” it came like a whisper. He didnot said anything but I knew that my touch eased his pain because it does lessen mine for sure. After few minutes of silence he suddenly pushed me on side and got up from his place and as soon his touch left mine the pain came again and I screamed loudly. I am guessing that he is not in pain now because now he is looking normal. Tears welled up in my eyes because of pain and I looked at him with pleading look and extended my hand towards him, right now, only his touch can ease my pain. He looked at my hand and then at my face, for a second his features softens but he shook his head and clenched his fists to stop himself.
“you will not talk about this with anyone” he said in threatening tone then took a step towards me “and if you will, than I promise my dear mate I will make yours and your loved once lives a living hell” he said with so much venom laced voice that I flinched and crawled a little further from him. He turned towards the door but again turned and looked at me, his eyes travelled down to both my bandaged wrists, then at my foot which is also bandaged and then at my bruised waist which is visible because my shirt have ridden up, I quickly covered the uncovered area and this made him more angry. “PATHETIC” he sneered and closed the door with a loud thud and I heard his footsteps fading away.
I am still on ground, tears are constantly flowing but the pain is very mild now. I cocooned myself and cried my heart out. Why it is happening with me? I have not done anything wrong in my whole life. I have not hurt a single soul in my life. No matter how much someone bully me I never fought with anyone and it’s not because I can’t fight it’s just because I don’t wanted to hurt anyone... then why me?
Suddenly door opened and layla and matt entered the room with panicked looks. As soon they looked at me layla gasped and matt ran towards me, lift me from the ground and put me on the bed. Layla is on my side in seconds and engulfed me in hug. I put my head on her chest and cried hysterically. I don’t know for how much time we are like that but slowly my sobs turned into whimpers.
“chubby” I looked at matt. He is sitting on the chair to my other side as my bed is not large for the three of us. “tell me the name and I promise I will make him suffer”
Even the mere thought of him is hurting me. People say that mates are the gift of moon goddess herself and he just rejected me like that, he rejected the moon goddess’s gift without thinking twice... am I that much pathetic that the one who is destined to give me love just turned his back to me without thinking about anything.. suddenly I felt pain in my lower abdomen, it is mild in starting but slowly I can feel it is increasing. I put my hand on my stomach and gritted my teeth to stop myself from screaming.
“what happened addy” she asked me worriedly and matt looked at me in panic. Tears are constantly flowing from my eyes I tried harder to bear the pain but at last finally I gave up and screamed and both of them jumped from their places in panic. I am now screaming and thrashing in pain and layla is trying to get a hold on me.
“mind link mom” layla screamed to matt. “she is hurting herself”
“noooo” I stopped him with gritted teeth. He stopped and looked at me in confusion. I was about to explain more to them when a jolt of pain crossed and I thrashed and screamed harder than ever, layla fell on the floor. Matt ran towards me tried to get hold on me but he was also unsuccessful and then suddenly just like the pain started it end abruptly. I took deep breaths while clutching my stomach, I am covered in sweat, my breaths and heartbeat is uneven and I am feeling a little dizzy.
Layla came towards me slowly and put her hand on my head. “you alright addy” she asked in timid voice. I don’t have strength so I nodded. Matt didn’t said anything but went towards the cupboard and took the first aid box from it. Layla sat on the bed and I crawled towards her and put my head on her lap, she slowly stroked my hairs while matt changed my bandages as old ones are soaked in blood. After it no one said anything, tears are still flowing from my eyes. I am feeling exhausted and my whole body is sore.
“sleep addy, we are here” I heard layla’s voice before blackness engulfed me.
I tried to open my eyes but no matter how much I tried I am unable to do so. I can hear two whimpering sounds and can hear few people talking and walking around me.
“what are the orders” a cold voice asked.
“he is coming here on his own until then we can’t do anything” another voice answered but none of the voices are familiar to me.
Nothing happened for few minutes I can still hear whimpering. After few minutes three pair of footsteps came towards me and again I tried to open my eyes but failed.
“hmm, good work” I heard a voice but this voice is sinister of all that I have heard till now. “kill her too and then dump their bodies in their pack and carve my name on their bodies, they should know who is the boss now” He said and then I heard fading footsteps.
I don’t know what is happening around me but soon I heard the sound of sword coming out of scabbard. Few footsteps came towards my right and then I heard the sound of sword swung in air and then the sound of blade cutting the flesh.I am not just panicked, I am frightened to death and all the darkness that is surrounding me is making me more uneasy. One of the two whimpers slowly started fainting and the last word that I was able to hear was ’AADhyaa...”
I woke up from my dream with a jerk and looked around for the source of that whimpering but no one is in my room other than matt and layla who are looking at me with worried expressions. I rubbed my hand on my face and took a deep breath. I can see that they are trying to stop themselves from asking questions.
“I will be back in a minute” I told them and went inside bathroom. I washed my face and looked at myself in mirror. My waist long curly hairs are unruly as always, my eyes are red and puffy and are looking more blank than before. I turned my gaze from my face and took the towel to dry my face and came out of the bathroom. I slowly walked towards the bed, took my specs from the side table, put them on and sat on the same position as before.
“are there many people in pack house right now?” I asked.
“today is 22nd, everyone is on the ground for barbecue” matt answered me. “we came to take you there with us”
“close the window matt” I told him and he did what I said. He again took his previous seat and now both of them are waiting for me to answer their unasked questions. I took a deep breath to lessen some heaviness from my chest but nothing is helping.
“ethan is my mate” as soon these words escape from my mouth both of them gasped but before they say or assume anything I completed the whole news.. “and he rejected me”. Matt and layla both stood from their places growling and their eyes flicked between theirs and their wolves.
“I am going to rip him limp by limp” layla’s wolf surfaced.
“I will destroy him” matt wolf also came in presence. Both of them are about to exit my room. I know I can stop them by using my beta command but I don’t want to use my authority over them.
“don’t leave me” I shouted and both of them stopped dead in their tracks. I know they are beyond mad as their shoulders are extremely tense, fists are clutched and even with a normal human hearing I am able to hear their labored breaths. “please” I told them and finally they gave up, came towards me and hugged me.
“don’t tell this to anyone” I told them.
“layla stay with her, I will come back in a minute” matt told her but I grabbed his arm.
“he is your alpha, he will banish you from the pack”
“having alpha’s blood in your veins doesn’t matter that you are the alpha” ..he is talking nonsense..
“I don’t wanted any of you to confront him. I don’t wanted to give him the satisfaction that I am crying like a weakling here when he rejected me without even having a second thought.”
“are you even able to register your words chubby? Did you know why were you feeling the pain few hours ago?” he is fuming and I tried to ignore what he said but I can’t run from the truth.. “he is fucking someone else chubby and you are the one who have to suffer this because you have not accepted his rejection” he shouted that rejection part and I flinched. “He made you suffer, you are crying here and he is whoring around. He is severing the mate bond between both of you. Both of you are tied to this bond, he can’t take any decision alone about this”
“please matt” I said but I don’t know for what I am pleading, is it because I want him to stop saying the truth? Or I want to stop him from hurting ethan.
He took a deep breath and came in front of me. “accept the rejection chubby” his voice is soft but still his words are piercing my heart. “the more time you will take the more you will suffer.” He said and got up from his place and I looked at him in panic. “I am going to bring food for us, nothing else. I promise” he said and went out of the room.
Layla is simply sitting with me and none of us said anything. I want to distract my mind from everything that happened today.
“layla, mind link matt. We are going to the human settlement” I told her and got up from my place. I walked towards the cupboard and took whatever clothes came in my hand.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea addy, we can go tomorrow” she told me nervously.
“my birthday is today layla, come on now, take anything that you want to wear from my cupboard and please don’t deny” I pleaded her softly and went to the bathroom. I took a quick bath and changed into a ragged denim and black tank top. When I exited the bathroom matt and layla both were there but none of them is looking ready. “guys, I am serious. I wanted to go there and I am not going alone.” they are looking unsure so I focused on matt first “please matt” I can see that he is still confused but he just nodded.
“I will be back within few minutes” he said and went out of my room. I looked at layla and cocked an eyebrow.
“fine,” she rolled her eyes and finally took something from cupboard and went to bathroom. She came out after few minutes and is wearing black shorts and black crop top.
“do you have ethan’s number?” I asked her while she was combing her hairs.
“why do you need his number?” she asked me and narrowed her eyes.
“so that I can enjoy my night” I told her and took her mobile. I called him, put the cell on speaker and tried to comb my hairs.
He answered the call after few minutes “hello”. It will be a lie if I will say that his voice does not have any affect on me.
“don’t get intimate with anyone for atleast this night, I can feel the pain and it is unbearable” I told him and tried to not show any emotions.
“so a weirdo like you will tell me what to do and what not to do” he tell me in cold tone and I instantly know that he is angry.
“listen ethan. Moon goddess paired me with you, I don’t have any mistake in this. You rejected me and I did not said anything, now I just want a peaceful night and a particular body part of yours have already given me enough pain to last for almost two days. I am just asking for today’s night” instead of saying anything he disconnected the call.
“damn, please addy let me go, I wanted to kill that bastard” matt is now standing in front of me. Before I say something ethan came barging in my room.
“who do you think you are to order me bitch” as soon he completed his sentence a punch came out of the thin air and met with his hard jaw. I looked wide eyed as layla is now standing between me and ethan.
“stay away from her” she whispered. I already know this is going to happen...She is shaking in anger, her fists are clenched and blood is dripping from her fists. I looked at matt for help but he is also in the same state. Suddenly I felt the change in atmosphere and I looked at ethan. His eyes are not brown anymore, his eyes are pitch black, his jaw is clenched but what make me nervous is his canines that are extended and he is snarling...well this is not looking good..
