Lost Hope

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

Abandoned as a baby, raised by the state. Hope doesn't know she is a wolf. When she shifts she finds herself in trouble with the Animal Control and Rogues. She finds her home and family and her mate? I listened and stared at him in the mirror as I applied my cherry lipstick and smacked my lips approvingly. Then I stuck it in my pocket. Turning and walking passed him into my room I grabbed my bag for my school stuff and set it on the bed. Looking at myself in the full length mirror I turned sideways then looked at the back of myself over my shoulder. After approving the cherry red spaghetti strapped tank top over my ample bosom, the skinny blue jeans and a leather jacket and leather calf high boots. I shoved in some gold dangly earrings and a bracelet on my wrist. “I’m stronger than the mate bond. I’m not worried. I refuse to be forced into anything I don’t want.” I grabbed my bag and walked out of the room with Jaxon shaking his head with a huge smirk on his face trailing me. “Yeah, it’s not that simple.” I turned around and looked at him determinedly. “Of course it is! I don’t want a mate and I’m not having one and that is all there is to it.” I ignored his chuckles all the way to the car. I couldn’t help but smile, he was such a jerk.

PROLOGUE

The craving in my gut was horrible but the pain in my chest was overwhelming as I looked down at my baby asleep in her car seat. It had taken everything I had to leave Blake. I just knew that he was wrong and that we wouldn’t be safe there. I knew I hadn’t been doing a good job taking care of my baby girl since I left the pack. I felt it and it made me afraid for her future. So there I was about to do the most horrific thing I could ever think of doing.

I had a drug problem and I knew it. I was not able to take care of her then, not properly. I needed to get up on my feet and kick the cocaine first. I would come back for her. I told myself that in hopes that I would, but I wasn’t really so sure as I looked at the track marks on my arms. I wasn’t that strong of a person, so I worried that I wouldn’t be able to. I wanted better for her than what I could give her at that moment.

I leaned down and stared at her for a moment, memorizing every inch of her sweet little face. I felt the tears starting as my eyes burned. Blinking them back I pinned the note to the car seat and kissed her forehead softly. “Mama loves you Hope.” The tears started to fall and I hurried to ring the buzzer and run around the corner to watch.

The door opened and I saw this huge fireman look down and smile at my daughter who was moving around a little in her seat. He looked around for me and I saw him shake his head. He leaned down and picked up the car seat and started cooing to my little angel.

Once the door shut I had to steel myself to turn and leave. The mad craving for drugs superseded my need for everything else and so I turned and went to the part of the city where I knew I could score something that would make me feel better.
