Chapter 5


A smell of something sweet like forest and pine fruit fill my nose making me sniff the air.

My wolf going crazy with happiness, delicious must be the food, the smell grows stronger signal we are close to the dining room, I can't wait to eat.

Immediately the door was opened the smell cane in full force almost knocking me off my feet, closing my eyes I sniff the air enjoying the sweet smell.

I may look crazy right now but I don't care, I opened my eyes it locked with the most beautiful eyes I ever have seen but the word that came out of his beautiful soft lips. Don't ask how I know it soft. stopped my heartbeat "MATE" it can't be, I didn't ask for a mate, I am so doomed.


You must be kidding me, I raise my eyes to the ceiling saying a silent prayer to the moon goddess "why shall this before me?" how can you pair me with the king of lycan why me? the lycan king, king of kings moon goddess I expect worst but this is beyond me.

when I glance black at him seeing he was not a bit affected by all this because he was already talking with someone else looking unfazed. It not like I was expecting anything different "oh Tiara it looks like we have gotten ourselves an arrogant asshole" I facepalm.

"Stop being so negative wait for few minutes he will speak to us later," Tiara says in an unimpressive manner.

I looked up to meet his eyes once again, his hazel eyes just like Elisa and black hair looking disheveled like he runs his hands making it messy, his face is a sculpture to perfection, sharp jawline and thick eyelashes and pink lips just waiting to press my lips on.

He so handsome and attractive that any girl will fall at his feet and boys envy a Greek God like him.

Noticing the awkward silence enveloping us I coughed awkwardly to get the attention away from me.

I debated either to run to the safety of my room or face what awaits me. Deciding best I made cautious steps towards the curious eyes watching me.

I took a seat between grandma and a girl having the same hair color as Elisa, she grins happily showing a set of white teeth, she must be Elisa, daughter.

The dinner consists of Elisa, Thomas, royal gamma jack, the beautiful girl by my side and two guys, It took me time looking around the dining room which was beautifully designed to perfection (picture below)

To say these people are floating in luxury maybe that comes with being the royal family.

The dining room was sparkling just like other parts of the mansion, this room is big as my whole packhouse and that I tell you is huge.

I was snapped from my thought by Thomas "from what my son just made us all think is that you are his mate correct ?" he says taking a sip from his glass of wine while staring at me intensely.

Is he trying to be intimidating because I am trying my best not to start laughing?

I just gave him a cold look" I am not his mate because from what I know I don't have a mate " this what we call playing it cool.

If only looks could kill I will be six feet below the ground from the intense glare the king is giving me right now " and why do you feel you don't have a mate? " he ask with a raised eyebrow

"I am cursed to never have a mate so I don't know what he meant by I am his mate, " I say smugly.

The expression on everyone's face was priceless maybe I should consider being a comedian because this is so hilarious.

"she was only joking your highness, " MA says apologizing before glancing at me warningly.

"enough of these jokes" the king growl gains everyone's attention, I shudder from the melodious sound made" she is my mate and this should be kept as a secret, " King said while daring me to respond with his intense gaze on me.

I bit my tongue to stop myself from making a smart-ass reply, after that, we all eat our meal in tension so tick could be cut by a knife, which was suffocating until broken by the beautiful girl " I am Lillian Clifford Lawrence sister" she says politely with a wide grin.

"Lawrence ?" I ask coldly taking a sip from my glass of water not really interested in this conversation.

she chuckled harmoniously "that is the king's name"

"oh okay" I answered shortly in an unconcerned manner, after this I really need to rest because today has been one hell of an erratic day.

"We should go shopping me, you and a girlfriend of mine, we can call it a girls time out," Lillian said grinning happily.

It will hurt me to break her dreams but I got to set things straight "I will love to but I don't do sure things " I say coldly like I said before I don't like having friends.

"okay no problem but what do you do for fun? " she sounds like my grandma right now.

" Umm... I plan out ways to commit murder without being caught " I say smugly earning a slap on my head by MA.

"you weird, I like you already, " she says laughing.

Wait until you see the real me " but for real what interests you? "

"I read for fun, " I say smugly.

"I love reading a lot, so what do you love reading about? " she asks.

"not to be rude or anything but can you stop asking questions already? " I say getting irritated.

"Sorry, I am just always curious," she says placing her hands on her lap.

She averts her gaze towards MA "you must be Alex, Kate grandma. It's a pleasure meeting you" she says with a smile.

"me too dear"

She points to a guy sitting beside her " this is Anderson Desmond my mate and royal beta" the guy looks handsome with brown curly hair and chocolate brown eye, he smiles politely at us before going back to his meal.

"And this my younger brother Levi" she points to the guy sitting beside Elisa and opposite MA.

Looking at Lillian she looks more like her mother with black short hair and gray eyes while Levi looks more of Thomas with honey brown eyes and brown hair.

"you welcome maybe by tomorrow I and my sister can show you around, what do you say?" Levi ask.

"yes we will love it right Kate?" my grandma said smiling mischievously at me, I am in for a long speech.

"yes, we are up for it, " I say pushing my chair back before getting up to leave the room "Thanks for the meal, will be in my room" I left the room leaving everyone in shock.

I sigh audibly while trudging towards my room, this day is getting crazier by the minute I can't wait for tomorrow 'note sarcastic term there'.
