1 week later...

I had completely forgot about going to mall with Jessica today. I just wanted to stay home and sleep but I remembered that I postponed for us to meet this week instead of last weekend.

I got up and took a quick shower. As soon as I got out, I brushed my teeth and washed my face. I didn’t bother wearing makeup because I knew I would forget to take it off later. I got dressed in an oversized black shirt, black leggings, and I just wore some Nike slides. I just combed through my hair and left my hair down.

Jessica texted me that she will swing on by. I texted her back saying that I’ll chill in the living room before she gets here. I went to the kitchen to grab some snacks so I won’t go hungry. I was sipping water from a cup when I heard the doorbell ring. I put the cup in the sink and I opened the door.

Jessica was dressed in comfortable clothes as well. She had on a blue sports bra with gray joggers on and a black windbreaker. She had her hair up in a bun. It looked like she just finished her workout. Her body looked good after having a baby. She had curves all in the right places. I could tell she was in no rush of getting more fit.

“Hey, mystic, how are you?“, she gave me a hug and I hugged her back.

“Good and you, did you just finish working out?“, I asked.

“Yeah, I haven’t worked out in forever but since Autumn was with your parents today I decided to do some yoga and do some cardio at the gym”.

“Wow, well if you need a gym buddy I’m down to workout with you. I haven’t been active lately either”.

She laughed, “Well I usually go when your parents watch her and your brother is out doing pack business with Asher, it depends what day it is but I’ll text you when I’m going”.

“Alrighty, well let’s go shopping”, We both left my place, I locked the door and we proceeded to get in Jessica’s car.

We drove for maybe like twenty minutes before we reached the mall. We walked towards the entrance and some of the pack members leaving the mall noticed me and Jessica and they bowed in respect and said hi to us. I returned their greetings and wished them a great day.

Me and Jessica went to several stores looking for casual clothes. I bought some jeans, camisoles, extra socks, and shirts.

She bought some dresses and jeans. After we went to a sunglasses store. I bought aviators and Jessica bought some oversized sunglasses.

We went to the food court and we got Italian food. We chatted for a bit and we laughed at some things we shared throughout the years.

“Remember that one time your brother was drunk and he ruined his plan on proposing to me. He drunkenly confessed that he was going to propose to me when we were going to go visit my parents back in Tennessee “, Jessica giggled.

I laughed with her, “Yes, I remember he got so mad that you found out”.

I stopped laughing as soon as I spotted someone that I’d least expected, Stella.

She was passing by looking at several of the restaurants and deciding what she was going to eat but she turned around and made eye contact with me.

Her eyes narrowed and she had a big smile on her face. Does she not hate me? What is going on?

She came over and squealed. “Oh my god I cannot believe you’re here Mystic,
I haven’t been seeing you around the pack lately.

I cringed, “Um yeah, I was just attending meetings and going over projects with Asher”.

“Oh well, it’s been years since I last saw you Mystic. Why did you leave?“.

Ugh, I just wanted to tell her off.

“Well, I mean I was of age of being a mature werewolf so I wanted to leave and be on my own”.

“You missed a lot when you left. But I’m pretty sure you know by now”.

I just smiled.

“Well, I’m going to get me and Asher food, he’s been conducting pack business and he hasn’t had lunch yet. Bye”.

She waved at me and went on her merry way.

“Hey Mystic are you ok?“.

“Why?“.

“Look at your hands”.

I looked down and I saw that my claws were out.

I rubbed my hands together and my claws retracted back to normal.

“I honestly don’t know why that Stella is back either, I can sense the tension between you two”.

I looked at autumn and I looked away.

“Were you two close, I just know Jason mentioned her briefly. I’ve met her a couple of times when you were gone”.

I laugh, “Well, let’s just say we both never saw eye to eye, she didn’t like me nor did I”.

I continued, “We both went to high school together. She had transferred from a city far away from here. From the start, she never liked me and I wasn’t bothered by her until she started to harass me every time she would see me. I ignored her but I started to get tired of her running her mouth so I would throw insults back at her. I knew her she was really close to Asher and she would talk with him a lot”.

I took a few sips of the water, “But anyways, I haven’t seen her since the last day I showed up at school. But what’s weird is that she’s so nice to me. I feel like she’s going to try and be friends with me maybe she’s matured, I honestly don’t know what’s up with her”.

“Well, I never liked her either. All of those times I’ve been in the same room with her, she was rude and snobby. I wish I can tell Asher himself to not marry that bitch but it is disrespectful to do so, it’s unfortunate that she’s his mate”.

When Jessica said those words, my heart dropped. I’m shocked but not surprised that they were perfect mates. They both complimented each other.

We threw away our stuff and exited the mall.

We got back in Jessica’s car and a guy approached me from behind.

“Excuse me miss, you forgot something”.

I didn’t hear him until he was really close to me.
I turned around and I saw that he had my phone in his hand.

I touched my back pocket and my phone was missing. Hmm, I wonder how I didn’t notice it wasn’t there.

“Oh uh, I didn’t realize I forgot it”.

“You forgot it at the table you were sitting in, I notice your phone on the table so I decided to get your phone and return it back to you”.

“Well thank you so much, you saved me a lot of money from having to buy a whole new phone. What’s your name?“.

“Marco, and the pleasure is all mine Beta”.

I was stunned no one referred to me as my title. Pack members would refer to me from my name never my title, I always felt weird about it.

He handed me my phone and I felt tingles shoot up my arm. We looked at each other and he smiled. He bowed and turned the other way.

I turned back to Jessica and her jaw was dropped.

“I cannot believe I just witnessed you meeting your mate. Oh my god Mystic!“.

She came closer to me and hugged me real tight. I started to silently cry. Oh my god, I just got paired with another wolf.

We got in the car and it was silent. I was dumbfounded at what just happened.
