Today is the day that my brothers and I turn sixteen. It is also the day that we meet our mates. At least, that is what we hope will happen. My name is Freya Andrews and I am destined to become the next Moon Goddess when I turn eighteen. I am one of the strongest beings alive along with my two brothers. Together we make the Almighty Trio that is set out to save the supernatural and humans alike. A lot of pressure, I know, but at least we will be together. Together we are stronger. Individually, we are still strong, just not as strong. I am more in touch with my witch powers because of who I am destined to be. However, I still have my wolf and I also have my vampire half. I’m just more in touch with my witch part.
“Freya! It’s time to get up and get ready for school! Don’t make me come up there young lady!” I hear my mom yell. I know what she means when she says she would come up here. She would bring a bucket of water and I would be stuck soaking wet, cold and I’d have to clean up the mess!
“I’m up mom! I’ll be down soon!” I yell down and shut my door back before going back to my closet. I decided to go with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a white crop top. I pair it with a pair of red sole heels and move onto my hair and makeup. I decide to throw my blonde hair up in a high ponytail with some strands framing my face. I keep my makeup simple, as usual, and just use some foundation, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. I walk downstairs and into the dining room where my family is already sitting at our table eating their breakfasts. “Well it’s about time young lady!” My mom says.
“You’re not wearing that little witch! Go change. Now” My father says as he growls lowly in his chest. “I want your mid-section covered.” I just roll my eyes at him and sit down next to my brothers and start to fill my plate. I’m starving. “Don’t you roll your eyes at me and ignore me Freya Lillian Andrews!” My mom puts her arm on his chest and gives him a glare. If it weren’t for my mom, I’m sure my dad would have blown a gasket by now. I may be nerdy, but I like to dress well.
“Levi! You knock it off right now. She looks lovely. It’s not like she is going out with her ass hanging out. She doesn’t have her tits hanging out. Remember what we talked about last time. She is sixteen now. Not yet an adult, but she is old enough to find her mate and she has her wolf now. You don’t complain when our sons go out and have their shirts off now do you?” My father opens and closes his mouth a few times before he finally sighs in defeat. He knows not to mess with mom. That’s probably why they have so many kids. There is eight of us and mom is currently pregnant again. “That’s what I thought. Now, eat your breakfast. We have appointments today and lots of meetings.”
“Thanks mom. Dad, I know you think that I’m still your little girl and that may be true, but I am sixteen now and I love you so much, but you have to let me off the leash sometimes.” I say getting up and kissing his cheek.
“You will always be my little witch. Now, I do believe that Happy Birthday’s are in order for my Almighty Trio!” My father exclaims. “Your mother and I have decided that you all will have a ball to celebrate your coming of age. I expect you all to be elegantly dressed and ready promptly at five. You guys head off to school and we will see you then. Happy Birthday pups!” He stands and takes my moms hand in hers, helping her off the chair. She wishes us each a Happy Birthday and tells all of us to behave at school. We all finish our breakfast and head to take our younger siblings to school. Once we drop them off, my brothers and I along with Uncle Jason and Alexis’s two of three pups, and Uncle Ryder and Aunt Shay’s two of five pups, split up between our three cars. My brothers and I are the only ones that are able to drive right now, so Everett, Jackson, Xavier and Preston ride in his Dodge Ram quad cab. Noel, Triston, and Harper ride in his Dodge Charger. Myself, Isabella, and Jessabelle all ride in my Jeep Wrangler. Sometimes I wish I had someone that was close in my age that is in my family, but I have my friends at school.
We arrive at Arctic High in twenty minutes and we all go our separate ways. I walk into the school and go to my locker. I put my things away and grab my books for AP History. I’ll be glad when this school year is over. We have about two months left, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic. “Frey!” I hear my best friend, Hannah, call from across the hall. I shut my locker and turn towards her with a smile on my face. She rushes up to me and pulls me into a hug. This is why she is my best friend. I have plenty of friends, but Hannah and I have been super close since we were in diapers. She has long black hair and dark brown eyes. She is about five foot five and is absolutely beautiful. “Happy Birthday to my favorite member of the Almighty Trio!”
“Thank you babes!” I say hugging her back. Before I know what is happening, she is ripped from my hug and in my brother, Noel’s grasp. They both call out ‘mine’ and then it hits me that my brother has found his mate. I’m happy for him, but I’m a bit upset that he found his mate before I found mine. However, he couldn’t have found a better person for a mate. My best friend is going to be a part of our ever-growing family and I can’t wait! “Well, congrats, but can I have my best friend back?” I joke pushing Noel’s arm a little. Hannah has been sixteen for a couple months now, but we can’t find our mates until they too become of age. Hannah giggles and pecks Noel’s lips before turning to me. I let out a fake gag and get a scowl in return. “Oh, cheer up buttercup! You’ll see her soon. You guys share every class together!” I say before dragging Hannah down the hall. We find Everett in the middle of a make-out session with one of the cheerleaders and I let out a scoff. Typical Everett. He is a player. I just hope when he finds his mate he calms his whoreish ways. “Everett! Get your tongue out of her mouth. You don’t know where it’s been! Besides, you wouldn’t want you mate to see you making out with…that would you?” I say jumping on his back making him let out an ‘oomph’ sound.
“Get off me Frey! Who’s to say that she’s not my mate?” He asks.
“Mine!” We hear behind us and when we turn around, standing behind us looking like a cheetah ready to strike, is Georgina Cravens. I jump off Everett’s back as he goes over to his mate.
“Mine.” He says before locking his lips with hers. Of course, he couldn’t just talk to her. He had to stick his tongue down her throat. Georgina is the quiet girl. She tries to avoid the spotlight as much as she can. She is the nicest girl I have ever met and will give you the shirt off her back. Literally, she did it for me once. The Barbie that Everett was just lip-locking with starts to move towards them and I let out a warning growl and she backs up.
“Leave them alone Heather. You don’t want to mess with me or anyone. Now, run along to your next make-out appointment.” I say before turning to Hannah. “You ready to get to class?” She nods and we head off down the hallway. Our classrooms are across the hall from each other so, we don’t have to separate.
“So, both of your brothers have met their mates. I can’t wait to see who your mate is.” She says.
“Yeah, thanks for reminding me. Maybe I don’t have a mate?” I think out loud. She scoffs. “What? You never know. Because of who I am supposed to become, I could not have a mate that is out there for me. I mean, I hope I do have a mate, but if not then I’ll be okay. I have my family and my friends.” I say, trying to sound nonchalant. I don’t think that it’s working though. Of course, it’s Hannah we’re talking about. She knows me better than anyone.
“I know you’re lying, but I will let it go for now. I’ll see you at lunch babes!” She says walking into her classroom as I head into mine. I walk into my class and stop at the door. I smell this wonderful smell. It smells like oranges and pine. That’s when he turns around. “Mine.” I whisper. Trevor Holloway. Star quarterback. Future head warrior to be Triston’s right-hand man when he takes over for Uncle Jason, is my mate.
“Mine.” He says, getting out of his seat and pulling me into his arms. Wow, the boy I’ve been crushing on for years, is my mate. I hope he doesn’t reject me. “Freya, you have no idea how happy I am that you are my mate.” He says bringing his lips to mine. Fireworks. That’s all there is. Fireworks. I found my mate!
