Annabelle's point of view
I was currently sitting my room, reading, as always. I hear my stomach growl and decide to go down and get something to eat.
I don't go downstairs very often because I feel as if the maids in here hate me for a reason unknown to me.
I put my book down and standing up, head downstairs. It was around 1pm. The surroundings were slightly familiar but now much as I was mostly huddled into the room.
Making my way to the kitchen, I realized one thing. I had never been to the kitchen. The kitchen was open and I could see maids cleaning up and talking with each other as they laughed. I smiled slightly at it.
Unfortunately for me, all of that stopped when they noticed me. A few them glared at me while the others decided it was more appropriate to 'whisper' things about me. Although I wouldn't call it whispering because I could clearly hear whatever they were saying.
"So this is the Luna? She looks young." I hear a girl with black hair and brown eyes say as she looked at her friends who seems disinterested.
"Yea, I know right? Guess she was very eager to jump the alpha." hearing ehr words, I stare at her slightly confused. But the look of disgust on her eyes told me that she thought of me as a slut.
"May I have something to eat?" I asked quietly ignoring the harsh glares and insults that were sent my way.
"Why don't you cook for yourself Luna?" the girl who had indirectly or maybe directly called me a slut said. She spat the word Luna out as an insult.
I looked at her, surprised. I mean, I did know how to cook and I would love doing it for myself. But I didn't disrespect her so who in the world gave her the permission to disrespect me.
"Excuse me, I haven't said anything insulting or harsh towards you. So I'd suggest that you control the stuff that is escaping your mouth." I say, she looks slightly surprised but covers it up with a look of disgust.
"What if I don't?"
My wolf tries to surface and show her who she is talking to. My wolf demands respect like every other powerful wolf.
"Let me out so I can show this little wolf who she is talking to." she growls. I frown. I don't know if it is a good idea to let her be in control. She is far more vicious and violent.
"Fine. " hopefully, she doesn't rip the girl's throat out. With that said, I let her take control.
June's point of view
"I honestly don't expect respect from you either. I mean, look at you. Pathetic little wolf. Dare disrespect their Luna." I growl out at the she wolf. She looks momentarily scared but covers it up with the same disgusted face.
"Oh, remove that disgusted look off of your disgusting face. It makes me wanna gag." I say as I pretend to gag. I can feel anger radiating off of her but it is nothing compared to the power I must be radiating right now.
"Have you seen yourself? You disgusting slut." that's when I lost it. How dare she? That pathetic little she wolf.
I move towards her, grabbing her by the neck and pinning her against the wall. A few gasps go around at my action. I smirk at that. They should know better than to disrespect their Luna.
"Oh, I am the slut? Bitch please. You look like the one to take four dicks at a time." I say as I increase the pressure on her neck slightly. I know that's not possible but what can I say? That's the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about her.
" That is not even possible. " she says as she tried to claw at my hand. I want to hiss but I won't give her the satisfaction.
"It might not be but it's you who we are talking about." I say shrugging. She passes me an attempt of a deathly glare. I laugh at that darkly and give one of my own.
I know Annabelle would never do such a thing. She is just too nice and sweet. I'm scared that someone would take advantage of it.
But he already has.
I felt pain strike me as I thought about poor Ann but there was physical pain too. But from here?
I look at the she wolf to see her claws out, which were now clawing at my hand that was wrapped around her throat. I squeezed it tighter almost cutting her air pipe.
Finally leaving her, I stand back and observe as all the she wolfs look at me with respect shining in their eyes but what made me smirk was the fear that was dancing with the respect.
They should know to never disrespect their Luna.
With that, I let the Ann take over. Hopefully, the pathetic she wolf doesn't decide to put up another pathetic fight.
Annabelle's point of view
I look at the maid who was now laying on the floor as she sobbed loudly while gently caressing her neck. Guit rushed through my veins at her sight.
"I'm sorry for hurting y-" I say quietly but stop when she passes me a deathly glare. I shift awkwardly on my two feet.
"That is a great trick. Hurt and then apologize. Gotta give that to you Luna." she says with venom lacing her words. I mentally agree with what she said.
Guess, my mate was having an effect on me.
"Indeed it is. But I couldn't let you disrespect your Luna." I said shrugging as I held my ground. I was not going to act like a pathetic girl after the act that June had pulled.
"I will never respect you, you bitch!" she yells. And there goes her chance at a good life. I feel my wolf growl and want to take over once again.
"Well then I'll just have to teach you." I say with a slight smirk. Another act I think I have learnt from Xavier. Atleast some of his actions are coming in handy.
"And how are you going to do that? You are just pathetic!" she yells as she pants heavily. Calm down girl. I raise my eyebrow at her word. Did she just call me pathetic?
"And says you." I say as I look at void of any emotions except anger. I never was the one to get into fights but I never expected my life to turn out the way it is either. So I think we can handle some changes.
"You-you bitch! You stole him away from me! He was supposed to be mine!" she screamed at the top of her lungs. Goddess, how in the world is her throat still holding and of course my ears. Her voice was already high pitched, the screaming just boosted it.
Wait, I almost forgot what she said. Wait, she was talking about Xavier? I wanted to laugh at that. She wanted him as her mate. Although I do doubt that, she would just have wanted him for her own bodily pleasure and of course the power. Which belonged to me. And I was going to show her that who she was talking to.
"Ah I see. Too bad, he isn't yours. He's mine." i say with my newly found power and of course I had to add the smirk for effects.
"HE IS MINE!!! HE ONLY BELONGS TO ME AND I TO HIM! YOU BITCH! YOU GOT IN THE WAY OF US!" she screeched that I controlled myself from covering my ears. Then I said something I never thought would come out of my way.
"Have you ever fucked him?"
I look at the girl to see her seething as her jaw was clenched with her fists balled at her sides. She looked angry and wild while I looked calm and composed.
"No, but I know he wants to! If you weren't in the way. I would've been the Luna!" she yells once again. She really loves yelling, I noticed.
"Well, so the answer no, yeah?" I ask and she mutters a little 'all because of you bitch'. For some reason, I had the urge to laugh at that.
"Aww, such a shame you will never get to do that. Just going to say he is ama-" I was cut off when I heard a deep voice behind me causing me to freeze. At that moment I realized what I had just done. Oh goddess no.
"What is going on here?" I slowly turn around to be met with the midnight blue eyes that would hold me captive whenever I looked at them. The mischief was shining in his eyes meaning he had heard me.
I should have never said that. He had raped me. I hadn't fucked him. I regretted it a lot now. Goddess, why couldn't I just control my tongue?
When he noticed that I was about to cry, all the mischief dissappeared as worry shone in his eyes. He quickly moved towards me. Instinctively, I took a step back watching as he slowed down and stood there for a while before taking careful steps towards me.
I won't hurt you. Please. Just calm down. Your breathing is having, you seem to be having a panic attack
I hear him say through the mindlink and at that moments I realized I was struggling to breathe.
Even more than you already have?
I say as I put a hand on my chest to calm down my rapid breathing. I felt bad for some reason but why? After all that he did, I think I had the right to feel bad but no. It felt as if I was the bad guy in here.
I am sorry. I know I can't change the past but I intend on changing the future.
He said, the determination in his voice wanted me to trust him blindly but I didn't if that would be right. What if he ended up hurting me again? Hadn't I suffered already enough?
What if you hurt me again?
I ask, now I was calm and the maids had all scurried away, going back to their work because of the sharp glare Xavier passed towards them, more specifically the girl who had decided to think that Xavier was her mate.
Even though, I didn't want to admit it but I was jealous. The words she had said wanted me to rip her neck off. But of course I couldn't do that even if I wanted to do it more than anything.
I shouldn't be jealous. He is a cruel and ruthless man. He has done heinous things that no one would ever do to their mate. I shouldn't be jealous over a man like him. But I was.
Suddenly, the memories from the day when I had seen him on his knees as he sobbed with tears shining in his blue eyes.
She increased her hearing and heard a drop fall on the floor. It was tears. This made her stop, was Xavier crying? But why? No, the big question was how? How?
Annabelle turned around and opened the door and saw Xavier holding his head in his hands and crying silently while being on his knees. She stood there with wide, red and puffy eyes. Xavier looked up and when Annabelle saw his eyes, she took a step back.
His eyes were filled with pain and overwhelming guilt but the pain. It was so much. It physically hurt her seeing him in that much pain. Was he alright? What happened? She felt like an idiot for still caring for him but she couldn't stop herself.
And the time when I had hugged him as he cried on my shoulder. His sobs were tearing me apart with the pain that was leaking through them.
He brought his hands and hugged her back, crying in her shoulder. Loud sobs echoed through the room. Annabelle's heart ached when she would hear him sob. His sobs were filled with pain and guilt. It felt as if the pain and guilt were physically hurting him. The agony in his sobs was indescribable. She let him cry out his pain as she just hugged him with tears in her eyes too. His sobs caused tears to form in her eyes. She couldn't believe this.
I snapped out of my thoughts when I felt his calloused hands take my small ones in his own. The warmth that radiated from them felt so nice. She just wanted to hold his hand forever.
"Let's get you to the room." he said as he led me to our bedroom. On the way, he told me that he had called a maid to deliver food for me in the room. I was happy that the act that I had pulled in the kitchen was finally forgotten. Hopefully he won't remember it.
" Oh, don't you think I forgot your little stunt back in the kitchen." I could practically hear the smirk in his voice. Oh goddess no. I shouldn't have said that too earlier.
Today was going to be a long day…
