Chapter 1 ~ Mine
Casey called me in tears. Apparently her loser boyfriend Carter, who I've been telling her to dump for months now, cheated on her or she caught him cheating on her.
He's the biggest jerk I have ever met and was constantly checking out and flirting with other girls.
Every time she wasn't looking or went out the room, he would start touching me inappropriately or get too close.
Of course I told Casey and she confronted him about it but all he had to do was say I misunderstood, give her a kiss and all was forgiven.
Casey has been my best friend since we were four years old. We've been through everything together: break ups, fights, high school, our first periods.
The thing I love her for most though is how she helped me when my family died.
I had just turned 16 when my mum, dad and four year old brother got in a car accident. It broke me and Casey took me in. Our families had always been close and I thought of her parents as mine and Casey as my sister.
Being the amazing best friend that I am, I agreed to take her to Liquid, the hottest new werewolf club that opened up to try and cheer her up.
We live in the small town of Lake falls and it is predominantly a werewolf city, of course there are a few humans but they don't suspect anything since we can shift whenever we like.
I've lived here my whole life therefore I'm certain that my mate isn't here, but somewhere out there in the world waiting for me.
My wolf is called Aria and we have a good relationship apart from the fact that she is a lot more hot-headed and so much fiercer than me.
I've been trying to find my mate ever since I turned eighteen, 9 months ago, but I had no luck which seemed to irritate Aria a lot and make her really snappy.
I was certain that it was my childhood sweetheart Ethan, but when he turned eighteen and screamed mate in chemistry, when Lucy Green walked into the classroom my heart broke. However, I'm happy for him now.
My thoughts are interrupted by several loud knocks on my door. "Hurry up! I need to get drunk now." She screams. I laugh as I open the door.
Casey was always the extrovert out of the two of us.
She loved partying and going out whereas I would very much rather stay at home all night curled up on the sofa, reading a book or binge- watching Netflix.
I guess it's a good thing though because I keep her sort of grounded and she pushes me out into the world to socialise.
You know what they say, opposites attract.
My mouth gapes as she's wearing one of the most provocative dresses I've ever seen.
The blue material hardly covers her breasts, has a huge slit near the thigh going all the way up to her arse. Her blonde hair was up in a messy bun, exposing her pale neck.
Me on the other hand went for a two piece red top and tight skirt, which barely covered my arse and showed off my tanned legs and stomach.
My raven locks hung just below my waist and was curled at the ends. I finished the look with my favourite red Chanel lipstick.
"I know, I know. I'm dressed like a slut." She says as we walk towards our Uber. "You could say that, It's literally a piece of cloth." I gave her a pointed look and she just scoffed.
"Yeah but Carter hated this dress. I remember once we got into a huge argument about it and he called me a whore. So when I found him humping some slut in our bed, I decided to wear it in-front of him, gave him the middle finger and left. Anyway, it makes me look hot and I need I if I'm gonna get laid." I just rolled my eyes as we got into our Uber.
When arrive outside the club, I throw the taxi driver some money and start to walk to the back of the really long queue.
Casey is quick to grab my arm though and starts to laugh at me. "Oh, Olivia you're too cute!" She taps my nose with her perfectly manicured finger and drags me to the front.
I watch how the bouncer's grumpy expression changes into joy as he notices Casey practically skipping towards him.
" Hey," She whispered loud enough for only me and him too hear. She placed a lingering kiss on his cheek and flipped off everyone who was now shouting at us cutting the line.
"Did you really think that I would make us stand in the fucking cold for an hour?" She said as we entered the club.
There were people were dancing everywhere, drinking and making out. Music was blaring out of the loud speakers and machines filled the room with fog giving the club a mystic feel.
I immediately regretted my decision to come out and knew that if I was to make it through this night, I needed to get drunk.
"I'm going to the bar." I screamed to Casey over the blaring music. "Vodka tonic!" she screamed back.
I had to push through as crowd of people to make it to the bar and stand there for at least ten minutes trying to get the bartender's attention.
The jerk was just stood there flirting with some girls that were definitely too young to even be here, never mind sleep with a thirty old bartender. It took me screaming at him for him to finally notice me and give me my drinks.
I mean seriously, how hard is it to get two drinks.
Feeling the buzz of the drinks, I went to dance with Casey handing her the drink which she scoffed down as fast as I did.
We started to dance to the music, when suddenly I felt two hands on my waist and someone grinding against me.
At first I liked the attention, grinding with him and putting my arms behind his neck, but he started to move his hands further down and I started to feel uncomfortable.
His hands were rubbing the side of body and then he brought his hands back to start to grope my arse.
I tried to shrug him off, but he kept a tight grip on my waist. He brought one hand up and squeezed my breast.
Okay, that's it.
I elbowed him hard in the stomach and heard him grunt. He let go of me and I walked off the dance floor back towards the bar.
Don't get me wrong I like the attention I get from guys, but no-one has got anywhere close to there. Not even Ethan, when we dated we agreed to not sleep together because we both wanted to save ourselves for our mates.
My vision started to become slightly blurred and I started to feel the vodka get to me, so I decided to go outside to get some air.
I looked over to see Casey dancing with some random guy and looking like she was having a good time, so I decided not to disturb her.
I walked outside, the cold air making me feel instantly better. I noticed a small alleyway behind the club and headed towards it, wanting some much needed privacy.
I took out my phone and began scrolling down my messages.
Now that me and Casey are through, wondering if you want to hook up? - Carter
Eww. I can't believe the bastard it's barely been a few hours and he is already trying to sleep with me. I start to play angry birds on my phone and soon become completely distracted by it.
Suddenly I'm pushed against the wall, my phone falling to the ground completely smashing.
My back collided with the hard surface making me wince.
The stranger came close to my face and whispered in my ear " I didn't like the way you elbowed me when I was dancing with you. I think I should be compensated on what I missed out on."
I could smell the alcohol on his breath and started to panic.
"Please! Don't do this." I begged starting to squirm to get out of his tight grip.
"Stay bitch or I'll make this hurt even more." He sneered in my ear whilst itching his hand up towards my skirt.
I tried to move my arms to punch him or move my legs to kick him, but it was clear by his strength that he was either a beta or a third.
I closed my eyes waiting for him to violate my innocent body.
I could feel his hands on my bare skin, one lifting my skirt and the slowly pulling down the straps of my top.
He put his cold finger on the band of my underwear when I heard a deep growl.
"Mine!" the voice snarled.
I opened my eyes which were blurry from crying and what I saw shocked me.
Two dark figures were fighting, the bigger one being the most dominant of course. It was clear that he was an alpha.
His dark brown, tousled hair and strong muscles could make anyone girl swoon over him but for some reason they did more than that for me.
I felt like I had died and been taken to heaven because he was exactly what I think an angel would look like.
He punched my attacker continuously until he passed out and then didn't stop. I could practically feel the anger that radiated off him.
I felt the strong urge to touch him, so I reached my hand out and touched his shoulder. "Mate!" I heard Aria screaming in my head.
He immediately stopped and brought me into his arms. I wrapped my tiny arms around his torso and leaned my head into his chest.
I could feel the rapid beating of his heart and it felt like everything and everyone in the world didn't matter just me and him.
"I've been waiting so long for you." I whispered, clinging on to him tighter. Then as if something had registered in his mind, he swiftly let go of me and pushed me away.
Confusion and hurt filled my body, but before I could say anything, he picked me up and threw my body over his shoulder carrying me towards a black Lamborghini.
