Embarrassed by my actions, I was not able to look into his eyes. At that time, I wanted just to dismiss my thoughts, feel the calmness and peace that I felt with him.
I couldn't believe that I kissed him, and he stopped, which was more humiliating. I felt an ache in my heart.
Why the hell did I kiss him?
Oh, Goddess...what he must be thinking about me right now?
Why does my control slip away in his presence?
We walked towards the main entrance, in complete silence.
Breath in....breath out...
As we reached the door, he opened it gesturing me to go inside. Something clicked me from the past and I realized.
"Is this Alpha's house?" I asked him forgetting everything that happened some minutes ago.
At once, I walked in front of this house with Sella and She told me this is where Alpha lives.
"Yes," he answered, hanging keys on the wall hook.
"Am I going to stay here?" I asked stunned by reality.
"Yes," He said keeping my bag aside and looking at me, arms crossed on his chest. All the things, I have heard about Alpha came rushing back to my mind, he killed his mate, he is cruel, heartless and nobody has seen him.
"Do you live here?" I asked.
"Yes," He said calmly.
"Say something apart from yes," I snapped.
"What is your relationship with him?" I asked and he ignored me, paying attention to a man in his fifties who entered from the left door, wearing an apron.
"Adam, this is Seira Smith, and Seira this is Adam, my cook and friend," Daniel introduced him, the man looked at me as if he is gawking at World's eighth wonder. Quickly recovering he gave me warm smile with curiosity in his eyes
"Welcome Miss Smith," He said and I smiled.
"Thank you and please call me Seira," I said warmly.
"She is going to stay with us for a few days, and you have to take care of her," Daniel said as Adam inhaled my smell, frowning at me.
"We will talk later about that," Daniel said seeing his reaction.
"Yes Alpha," Adam said and I looked at Daniel as he started moving with my bag, gesturing me to follow him.
Two words, hearing and recognizing their meaning felt like the blood has been drained out of my body. I stood there looking at Daniel, as he stopped at the stairs when he realized I didn't follow him.
He is Alpha...
I have kissed him...twice.
All the Incidents of the last day rushed into my head, now making sense why he hid his identity from me, those soldiers followed him without question.
People said he was ugly, burnt but I see the most handsome man standing in front of me. But not to forget he is a killer, he killed his mate. At this moment, I wanted to shout, and ask him all the questions but nothing was ready to come out of my mouth.
What if he does the same as Alpha Sam did when he realized how our power can be snatched?
If he realise I am fae, would he kill me for my powers?
If he could kill his mate then I am no one to him...
For three years, I have been staying low key and now I am in Alpha's house...
Have I just walked into the trap...
Did he know I was fae?
Can those allegations of killing on him be true?
"Adam, could you give us a minute?" Daniel said to Adam as his eyes were fixed on me.
"Yes Alpha," Adam said, moving towards the same door from where he emerged. I wanted him to stay but I couldn't voice it out.
Daniel walked towards me, his gaze straight and my heartbeat paced at full speed. The man I kissed today turned out to be Alpha, I have no hope for what comes next.
He stopped just inches away from me " Are you scared now?" showing no emotions on his face.
Oh Goddess, ...
I was scared but I was too proud to admit it. Inhaling a deep breath, trying to keep my feeling in control.
"No," I said.
"Really?" Looking surprised.
"No, I am not scared," I said maintaining eye contact.
"Have you heard about my gloried tales from my pack?" He asked in a mocking tone.
"Yes," I admitted.
"And you are not scared of me?" He asked.
"No," I admitted. Honestly, I was more scared of him finding out about me than what he has done.
" Did you kill your mate?" I blurted and his eyes turned from concerned and warm to stone cold. At this moment, I realized I wanted him to say no.
" Yes," He said as his eyes were noting every minor reaction I gave to his words.
"Why?" I asked somewhere knowing he would not answer me, he was looking at me but was lost in his thoughts.
"I don't want to talk about it," He repeated the same words I said in his car. I wanted to ask further but his eyes were down on his toes as if waiting for me to ask further questions, I didn't feel right to push it. Also, I knew this feeling of being pushed by others to know something you don't want to talk about.
"How many days do I have to stay here?" I asked.
"I can not say anything right now," He said.
"Do you know who I am?" I asked my worst fear as he looked right at me.
"No," He said sincerely.
"What do you want from me?" I asked as he frowned.
"What do you mean? I am helping you," He said.
"Do you live here alone?" I asked.
"No, Adam lives in that room," He said pointing towards a room next to the kitchen.
It's just for two days, I can distract him...
Jack will bring potion by then...
I have to stay away from Daniel till then...
Come on Seira...you can do this...
Breath in...breath out.
Feeling a bit of relief, I walked past Daniel towards the stairs without looking at him, feeling as if I glanced at him then he might read my intentions.
"Come on...show me the room," I started ascending the stairs, feeling his moment after a minute when I reached midway.
His house was not big as it should be, it was simple with nice wooden flooring, there was no furniture in the hall. I guess, he didn't meet anyone.
"You will be safe here, " He said as we reached a room in the corner, opening the door, he looked at me.
The room was nice, with the queen size bed and a white couch lined parallel to it, there was a door on the right side of the bed, I guessed it to be the bathroom.
"You will be safe here," Daniel said as I assessed the room.
"Thank you," I said.
"My room is next to yours, if you need anything just ring the bell, Adam will get you what you want," He said watching me and I nodded.
"Take leave for some days from school," He said.
Oh, goddess, I forgot about school...
What will I do here for two days?
" Okay, I will take leave of two days, "I uttered without realizing my words.
" Why only for two days? What will happen within two days?"He asked eyeing me skeptically
Give me five stars for being stupid...
I wanted to whip myself for giving him a point to question.
"I mean, I thought my smell might go in two days," I said.
"How?" He asked.
"I mean since I am human--" I stopped.
"Cut the crap Seira, we both know you are not human," He snapped running his fingers through his hair.
"You wouldn't tell me but I would find out soon what you are," He said when I didn't say anything.
"I am tired, " I said dismissing this discussion.
"Woman, why can not you save me trouble and tell me who you are," He asked.
It's just for two days....
Then I will smell like a human again...
I reminded myself, closing my eyes focussing on my breath. I heard him sigh and the next thing was the sound of the door shut with force, making me jump as I opened my eyes. I stared at the door for some time before sitting on the bed.
Oh goddess, help me....
I hope these two days pass without any trouble...
I would stay out of his way...
Just don't let him find out about me...
