I arrive at school early so I can get my schedule, go to my locker, and have my breakfast before the lunchroom gets crowded. I walked into the front office and stopped in front of a blonde woman with bright red nails and fake boobs that were about to pop out of her top. I take a deep breath as she looks at me.
“Hello, how may I help you?” She asks. Her voice is nasally and to be honest it’s annoying, but I still plaster on a smile.
“Hello, My name is Angel Sanders. Today is my first day”, I told her.
“Oh yes. Give me a second please while I get your stuff”, she says, and gets up from her chair. The first thing that catches my eyes are those hot pink pumps and I try not to roll my eyes. A few minutes later, she comes back and sits on her chair.
“Okay, this is your schedule, your map of the school, and your locker number with the combination. All the books you need are in your locker. If you need anything, don’t hesitate to come to the office”, she says.
“Thank you”, I said, and left the office. I went to my locker and got the first two books which is AP Environmental Science, and AP Calcs. After AP Calcs I’ll get my AP US History and my clothes for P.E. At the end of the day my last class is Engineering. Once I have my books I go to the cafeteria. I grab two breakfast sandwiches, a bowl of fruit, and an orange juice. I pay for my food and sit at one of the empty tables. I could feel eyes on me but I ignore it. Once I finish my first sandwich and almost done with my second a group of girls enter the cafeteria. Some jump on some guys and kiss them. I see two other girls walk to a blonde girl then I hear someone on the table behind me.
“Is that a new person?”
“I think so”
“Where did he come from?” not wanting to hear anymore I just grabbed my juice and threw out my tray. I then went to check out where my first class would be. Once I found it I took a seat in the back and took out my drawing book and began to draw.
I groan at the sound of my alarm, again. For some reason I couldn’t sleep at night and by the time I was able to go to sleep it was about three in the morning. I sigh getting up. I go to my bathroom and do my morning routine. I then take a shower. When I finish I dry myself and go to my closet. I put on my boxers, I wear my dark blue jeans, a black t-shirt, and my black Timberland boots. There’s a knock on my door.
“Colin let’s go. We’re going to be late” Alondra, one of my Betas shouts.
“I’m coming” I said grabbing my black leather jacket, my wallet, phone, and my helmet. I walk out the room and see my mom.
“Good morning mom. I love you” I said rushing out the door. I straddle my bike just as Alondra and Manny rev their bikes. I put on my helmet and take off with Alondra and Manny behind me and behind them were Ray and Jake in their cars.
I pull up to the school with my best friends Beta Alondra and, Gamma Manny in our motorcycles. Beta Ray and Gamma Jake pull up beside us in their cars. I see Dayna, Gamma Jake’s mate. Not far behind her is Tara, my girlfriend and one of our best female fighters. We have been dating for three years now. We kiss, hold hands, go out on dates, but no i*********e. Though lately she’s been wanting to have s*x with me and talking about wanting to be my Luna, but I’m saving myself for my mate and the Luna title is ONLY for my mate.
“Hey, have you guys heard? We have a new student” Tara says linking her arms with mine but I move away from her to take off my helmet than go to ther side again. I kiss the top of her head and she smiles at me.
“We do? It’s almost the end of the semester” Alondra says.
“Yes, and I intend to find out who this person is” Tara says before walking off. I sigh shaking my head. The bell rings making me groan. I didn’t have time for breakfast this morning and my stomach is making sure to let me know.
“Here, you can have my protein bar and pear” Dayna says.
“Are you sure?” I ask.
“Yeah, I already had a big breakfast” she says.
“Thank you” I said tearing into the protein bar. The second bell rings just as I open the door to my class. The scent of strawberries and chocolate fills my nose. My wolf, Xan pushes forward wanting to take over, but I push him back. I look around to see everyone is the same until my eyes land on a figure all the way in the back. The person was wearing black sweatpants and a large hoodie with the hood up. I couldn’t see the person and he or she was hunched over drawing on a notebook. The teacher walks in and starts taking roll.
“Colin Knight” the teacher calls my name,
“Here” I said not taking my eyes off the person next to me.
“Mr. Sanders, I don’t like students with their hoodies or hats on in my class. Remove your hoodie” Mrs. White says. The person next to me doesn’t say a word and it’s like he didn’t hear the teacher. The teacher speaks a little louder and my wolf growls in my head not liking how she was talking to this guy... our mate.
“Mr. Sanders, I’m going to ask you one more time to take off your hoodie and tell us a little about yourself” Mrs. White all but shouted. The guy next to me finally stood up.
“Last time I check I was a female” the person we all thought was a guy says taking off her hoodie making everyone in the classroom gasp and Mrs. White blush in embarrassment.
“I’m sure that next to my last name, my name is beside it and if it’s not then… my name is Angel” the girl next to me says. She’s tall, about five feet nine inches, with beautiful wavy/ curly dark brown hair, cute button nose, sexy, full lips, and... wait, are her eyes purple? I have never see anyone with purple eyes. Goddess, her eyes are so beautiful. She is beautiful.
‘Mate’ Xan howls in my head.
“Can you tell us more about yourself?” Mrs. White asks.
“No” my mate says and sits down.
“Okay” Mrs. White says then clear her throat and continues, “today we are working in groups, so find yourselves a partner.” I quickly stand and walk to my mate.
“Hi, I’m Colin. Would you like to be my partner?” I ask making her look at me. My breath hitches when her eyes lock with mine. She looks around before looking at me again.
“Are you sure?” she asks and I nod.
“Yes” I smiled.
“Okay” she says giving me a cute half smile.
“Where did you move from?” I ask scooting my desk over to hers. She looks at me then around the room and I noticed that everyone was looking at us. Half of our class were humans, so I couldn’t do much, but I growl lowly knowing that the werewolves in the classroom would hear my warning. They werewolves quickly looked away and I noticed my mate relax a little. I looked at her notebook as she continued to draw.
“Wow, you’re good” I said looking at the notebook closer. Looking at it closer, I realized she was drawing the woods to the side of the school building which you could see out the window.
“You think so?” she asks looking at it.
“Yes, I do” I admit. It was really good. Suddenly she tore it out of her notebook and wrote her name at the bottom with today’s date and handed it to me.
“You can have it” she said with a slight blush.
“Wow, thank you” I smiled taking the drawing. I put it in the outside pocket of my binder.
“So, where did you move from?” I ask again.
“Everywhere” she says. I open my mouth to say something but my stomach growled really loud. I blush in embarrassment, but I heard the sweetest sound ever. My mate giggled before reaching into her backpack pulling out a large blueberry muffin and handing it to me.
“It’s not good to be hungry during class. You can’t concentrate” she says.
“Are you sure? I don’t want to take your food” I said feeling guilty.
“I already had breakfast and ate one of those. That was just an extra” she says. I quickly unwrapped it and tore into the muffin.
“Goddess this is so good. Where did you buy this?” I asked her.
“I didn’t. I made them” she says making me look at her.
“Really?” I ask and she nods writing down whatever Mrs. White was writing on the board. The time seemed to fly by because not long after the bell rang. My mate picked up her stuff then looked at what I assume was her schedule. I leaned in to take a look and memorize her schedule.
“Do you know where you are going now?” I ask.
“AP Calcs AB. Room 309” she replied making me arch an eyebrow and nod.
“It’s close to where I’m going. Come I’ll take you and thank you for the muffin. It was perfect” I said making her blush. We walked out of the classroom and I can feel all eyes on us. My mate puts her hoodie back on and continues to follow me.
“I’m going to go out for lunch today. There’s a diner nearby that has great burgers. Would like to join me? My treat” I said.
“I don’t know-”
“Come on is my way of say thank you for the muffin” I said making her giggle and I couldn’t help but grin.
“Okay” she says.
“Great, well, here is your class and I’ll see you later for lunch” I told her and she nods.
“Thank you for walking me to class” she said and walked inside the room.
“Dude, who is that?” Trisha, my sister asks.
“That’s my mate, Angel” I replied.
“Your mate is a male?” my sister asks.
“Angel is not a male” I say to my sister and she smiles at me.
“I’m happy for you big brother” my sister hugs me before leaving for her class and I had to hurry up and get to mine. I couldn’t concentrate during the whole class. Xan wanted to see our mate and so did I.
‘We should change our classes to our mate’s’ Xan says. It wasn’t a bad idea. So, instead of going to the library for my free period, I make my way to the office. As soon as I enter Monica, the front desk secretary looks at me and smiles. She looks around before speaking to me.
“Good morning Alpha Colin” she purrs.
“Good morning Monica. I want to make some changes to my school schedule” I said.
“Of curse Alpha. Please write the changes you want and I’ll make sure to make them” she smiles seductively handing me a piece of paper, but I was not attracted at all. I remembered all my mate’s classes from when she was looking at her schedule. I wrote down all her classes then handed it to Monica.
“Make sure that all the teachers know starting after lunch” I told her before leaving the office. I went to the cafeteria to grab a snack and something to drink. I know lunch is next but I’m starving. After grabbing my snack and drink I headed to my mate’s class which is AP US History. I looked at my phone knowing the bell will ring soon. Just as I finished my chips the bell rang. People started coming out of the classroom and those who were werewolves or had mates who were werewolves would bow in respect. My mate was one of the last ones still in the room. I walk in to see Tara was there as well with Ivory, and Karen, her two minions. This was not good. Tara, my girlfriend and Angel, my mate in the same room which reminds me I have to cut things off with Tara. Ivory and Karen were laughing about something but as soon as they saw me they stopped. My mate grabbed her bag swinging it over her shoulder.
“Hey, are you ready to go?” I asked my mate.
“Where are you going baby? I thought you were having lunch with us like you always do” Tara said wrapping her arms around mine. I looked at my mate to see her face showed no emotion. I moved my arm and stood beside my mate.
“I have other plans” I said and looked at my mate. Tara looked between my mate and me but I didn’t care. My mate was ignoring her and her minions.
“Oh, okay then I’ll see you later babe” Tara purred. I brushed her comment off and gestured for my mate to follow me. After leaving her backpack in her locker we went out to the parking lot. We stopped next to my motorcycle and I handed her my helmet.
“This is yours” she asks looking at it and admiring the paint.
“Yes, one of my dad’s friends did the costume paint job” I admitted.
“Ducati Panigale V4 Speciale. V4 engine, 214 hp, top speed 190 mph (Est.), 13,000 rpm (speciale 166.3 km 226hp). It’s a very sexy bike” my mate says. I was stunned.
“You know about bikes” I ask feeling very impressed and proud of my mate.
“I know a little something” she grins putting on the helmet.
‘She’s amazing’ I thought to myself and Xan nods in agreement. I rev the bike and we both get on. I grab her hands feeling the sparks shoot up my arms and my mate gasped looking at my hands. I gave her a smile then placed her arms around my stomach before taking off. The diner wasn’t far from the school. I parked my bike and we both got off. She took off the helmet and placed it on the bike. I took her hand earning another gasp because of the sparks. Once inside we went to a booth.
“Hello, Colin, it’s good to see you again and this time you brought company” Josephine said.
“Hello, Josephine, you looks as beautiful as ever. How is your husband Carl?” I ask.
“He’s good, still working on that car” Josephine says.
“That’s good, at least it keeps him busy. Josephine, I want you to meet Angel. She’s new in school and in town” I introduced.
“Hello dear, my name is Josephine” Josephine extended her hand to my mate.
“Hello, Josephine, it’s very nice to meet you” my mate said with a small smile.
“Like wise. So, what can I get for you both today?” Josephine asks.
“I want a burger, with everything, fries, and a coke” I said.
“I’ll have the same but no pickles or mustard on mine” my mate said.
“Of course, I’ll be right back with your drinks” Josephine smiled before leaving.
“So how was your classes?” I asked my mate.
“They were okay” she replied.
“Did anyone give you any problems?” I asked.
“Nothing I can’t handle” she replied.
“So, why did you move all the way out here?” I ask. She looked at me and for a split second I saw fear and pain before it disappeared.
“I needed a change” she said. I could tell she was trying to keep her voice steady, but I heard her voice break a little. I know she’s not going to want to talk to me about what happened, but I want her to know that I’m here for her whenever she needs someone to talk to.
“I know we just met, but if you ever need to talk to someone, I’m here for you” I told her. She looks at me and for the first time ever she gives me a full blown smile making my breath hitch.
“Thank you. That’s very nice of you” she says just as Josephine comes back with our drinks. Not long after she came back with our food.
“Enjoy, if you need anything else let me know” Josephine said before leaving. I looked at my mate to see she was looking at the burger.
“Is everything okay?” I ask.
“I thought it was going to be a normal burger, but this looks amazing” she says.
“Wait until you try it” I grabbed mine and took a large bite. My mate grins and grabs her taking a bite out of hers as well. She closes her eyes and let’s out a moan. I felt Xan slam himself forward and I felt my eyes change color.
‘Xan, calm down. We don’t want to scare her away’ I tell my wolf. I close my eyes and take a deep breath. Once I felt Xan relax I opened my eyes.
“It’s good to know that you’re not like some girls who prefer salad over a burger and afraid to get dirty” I said.
“There’s nothing like a good burger, plus life it’s short to not enjoy it and I don’t mind getting down and dirty” she says taking another bite from her hamburger. We continue to eat in comfortable silence.
“Would you like any dessert?” I ask my mate.
“No, I’m full. I’m glad I have a free period now before gym, but maybe next time” she replied and I couldn’t help but smile. She said next time and it made me happy. I called for Josephine to bring me the check. Only for her to tell me that it was on her. She shook my mate’s hand and I left Josephine a fifty dollar tip. When we got back to school everyone was back in class. I walked my mate to her locker and then we went to mine to get our bags.
“Are you serious?” I hear my mate ask making me turn around to see what was wrong.
“What’s wrong?” I ask.
“This covers nothing” she says showing me her gym shorts. Yes, they were short spandex and to the female it came just below their butts.
“Maybe they have other shorts in the locker room” I said. She grabs the shorts and stuff the in her backpack.
“What do we do now?” she asks.
“Come, I’ll take you to my nice quiet place” I told her. I still can’t believe I found my mate and to my wolf and I, she’s perfect.
