The Mating Ball

By WriterKittie All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Fantasy

Blurb

Spencer is a cheetah shifter who lives in Armaya (an alternate universe where all supernaturals live) with a big group of her kind called a pack. All supernaturals have been relegated to this alternate universe because the humans had been hunting them. Human mates ceased to exist since none of the humans wanted anything to do with the supernaturals. Once all supernaturals moved into their alternate universe, they settled down and all became peaceful. The moon goddess decided to keep the different species in peaceable times, so she created mates that crossed different species: a werewolf and a panther; a vampire and a cheetah; a fae and an elf…etc. All of Spencer’s life, she’s been told of mates, and how her mate could be a different species, so she has to go to the annual mating ball that was held at the vampire castle. The Mating Ball happened to fall three days after her 16th birthday, the age of which a cheetah shifter can find their mate. What happens when she attends the mating ball and receives the biggest surprise of her life?.

Prologue

Spencer’s P.O.V.

“And now I introduce to you, Spencer and Sam Michalson; daughter and son of Alpha Greg and Luna Haley Michalson of the cheetah pack, Racers!” The herald announced as my brother and I walked into the room.

“Here goes nothing,” I breathed out, getting ready to go and search for my mate.

“Good luck sis,” Sam told me as we split ways.

I nodded, but didn’t respond, as I was too nervous. I mingled among everyone, searching for my mate. I would know that I found my mate if I smelled their scent. That’s how a cheetah shifter first finds their mate. Then, it’s the looks and the touch.

My brother, a vampire, would find his mate by their scent and touch. He had to go around, shaking hands with everybody. I just had to follow my mate’s scent.

After searching for forever, the herald announced that all mated couples were to leave. I saw my brother leave with another male. That’s great! He found his mate! I didn’t.

“Okay, you four, follow me!” The herald exclaimed pointing to the first four people in the line we were lined up in.

They followed him into a closed room. Once the door shut, whispers broke out.

“I wonder what’s in there…” someone whispered.

“Are they going to kill us?” A girl asked me.

I turned to look at her and was surprised to find that she was a werewolf.

I shrugged. “There’s probably more people in there to see if they’re your mate. Remember, the non-royals and non-nobles have to search; the royals and nobles do not,” I told her.

“You mean that the royals and nobles are in there, and there’s a possibility that one of them is my mate?” She asked me, paling.

I nodded cautiously. “Yeah;” I answered.

Just then, the herald appeared. “You,” he pointed at me, “you,” he pointed at the girl next to me, “and you,” he pointed at some guy next to the girl, “follow me.” We silently followed him to the doors where he asked, “How do you find your mates?”

I sighed. “I find mine by the scent,” I told him.

“I find mine by scent and touch,” she responded.

“I find mine by scent as well,” the guys said.

“What are you? You’re not a shifter,” I said.

“I’m a siren,” he responded, smiling and showing off his razor-like teeth.

“I’m a cheetah,” I said proudly.

“And I’m a werewolf,” the girl said.

“My name’s Spencer,” I introduced myself, getting tired of calling them guy and girl.

“I’m Jason,” the siren said.

“And I’m Emmaline,” the girl said.

“Nice to meet you,” I told them, shaking their hands.

“Enough talking! When you go in, be silent and focus on finding your mate. If you do not find them, come back to the door, otherwise, follow your mate,” the herald hissed at us.

Smiling, I nodded. The doors opened and we stepped inside. I took a deep breath and caught a scent that made my cheetah come to life.

I received my tail, ears, and teeth as I began to follow the scent. I was so into following the scent that I didn’t notice that I passed all of the nobility and went straight into the royalty section. Pretty soon, I found my mate.

I looked up and saw that my mate was the...
