Chapter 2

1300 Words
Landon sat in his seat, waiting for the Alpha king's arrival. His eyes landed on Thora, who stood beside him in his chosen dress. A trim maid's dress, with its hem barely covering her ass. The blouse is tight, highlighting her thin yet perfect figure. "You are to serve them the drinks and food. No mistakes will be tolerated. Am I clear?" She nods, not in the mood to fight with him after last night's punishment. The whip marks were still fresh on her back. "Good. Now come here." He smirks, and she already knows what this is about. Grabbing her from her waist, he makes her land on his lap. Before she could react, he crashed his lips on her. Thrashing was no use. She was used to his behaviour till now. Laying still, she allows him to kiss her. But then, all of a sudden, her weak wolf thrashed in her mind, and she started pushing him back. This was not right, she doesn't feel right. Landon pulls back and smirks, his eyes stare at the entrance, and that's when she feels her senses freeze all of a sudden. No! This can't be. Pinewood and rain fragrance hit her full force, and she clenched her fists. "Greetings, Alpha King!" Landon spoke. And that was it; her whole world collapsed right there. The mate she thought would protect her had seen her kissing another man the first time they met. And what did he say? Alpha King? No, he can't be....a powerful man like him... impossible..... he must be one of the other men on his council. She didn't dare to look back. Her mind froze. His aura surrounded him in deadly waves, making her wish this ground to open and swallow her down. The Alpha King didn't speak. His silence made her more uneasy. Landon stares at her, confused and then whispers in her ear, making her body tremble. "Turn around and greet the Alpha princess. He doesn't take disrespect lightly." But she couldn't. She can't see those eyes staring at her in hate. She can't let her only hope of escaping this hell ,die. Before she could say another word, Landon's arm coiled around her waist, and he turned her around. "Bow" He orders, and she does, keeping her eyes on the floor. She could feel a burning gaze on her, and she knew then. He would hate her. "I have been waiting for you, Sir. Please take a seat." The Alpha didn't move, making her shift her weight from one leg to another. Should I look up at him? Who is he? That's burning and suffocating...I have to look up...but I am an Omega... it will be considered disrespectful. She debated in her mind when she felt a rough grip on her arm. She flinched as Landon whispered in her ear. "Get drinks. Don't stand like a fool here." And that's all she needed, without looking back at those burning eyes. She hurried down the hall, arranging for the starters. Her heart is beating heavily in her chest as she leans her head on the wall and tries to calm herself. ................................................ Volkan's pov My eyes were fixed on the back of my mate. It was bare in that filthy maid's dress. My fists clenched as my eyes went lower to see the tunic barely covering her ass. "Alpha King, please have a seat." The bastard speaks, giving me a small smile. Alpha Landon is one of the strongest and most well-reputed Alpha's in our Kingdom. I wanted to believe he was a flirt who tried to lure my mate. But his reputation said otherwise. All respected him, and no one had heard of him disrespecting girls. Either he was masking it well, or he was a genuine man. But that kiss....he f*****g kissed my mate, and the worst part was that she didn't even push him. Sitting down on the table, I take deep breaths to calm my wolf. The very thought of our mate losing her virginity to some bastard made a fire of fury burn in me. Had she already betrayed me? I have waited for her for many years, yet she couldn't wait for me. Is she sleeping around with other men to satisfy her heat? The meeting progressed, and my council members started discussing while I remained silent. My mind is lost in assumptions and betrayals. Suddenly, the door opens, and her scent hits me before I see her. So f*****g addicting, yet impure and defiled. Intermingled with this bastards. Have they f**k** today? She steps forward, balancing a tray in her hands. Her hands shake as she walks with those high 4-inch heels, making her legs look longer. Her hair was veiling her face as I stared at those downcast eyes. Daring them to look at me. Her steps turned hasty, and then suddenly, Landon ordered her, having her beautiful brown eyes look at him. "Hurry up." He says, and she again nods like an obedient pet, lowering her eyes to the floor. My beast was struggling, seeing her getting ordered around like that. Her being so submissive to him, like the bastard Landon owned her. Fuck! I have to leave. My emotions are going out of control. "Excuse me." Pardoning myself, I got up to leave when I almost crashed into her as I turned. "Ah" She shrieks in surprise. The champagne glasses shattered as they hit the floor, and the sound of the tray hitting the floor echoed in the corridor. My breathing stopped for a second as I saw her staring at me. Her innocent eyes met mine, and my wolf went crazy in my mind. Mate! Mate! Her mouth opened and closed in shock as she realised who I was. Her mate. The man she had already betrayed. " sorry...I ..." She stutters, her eyes looking innocent and beautiful. If only she were as well. She looks lower to stare at my tuxedo, and the next I know, she bravely takes a napkin from the table and dabs it on my chest, trying to clean the stain on my shirt. " really...sorry...I was..not looking...." Her fingers touched my chest, and that's when what they call the explosion of tingles blasted into full force. She freezes, and her hands stop. She looked up at me, shocked. I stepped back, making agony and pain flood through her innocent eyes. Her fingers stopped in mid-air, and she clenched her hand. While I continue to look at her with indifference and coldness. "Thora! What the hell!" Landon screams, and she starts apologising again. "Alpha...I beg pardon..she is -" I barely show him my hand, and he stops in between. She looks down at the broken pieces of glass, her hands fidgeting as she sits down to pick them up and place them in the tray. I looked down at her, picking up the broken pieces of glass near my feet, and I saw the other men staring at her behind. I clench my fist. The pathetic excuse of her tunic was hiding nothing, and my beast was infuriating. I wanted to kill my men because of her. Fuck! I have to leave. Side-stepping her, I leave the meeting as murmurs follow behind me. But I didn't care. I have to leave before my beast is unleashed and this place turns into a f*****g bloodbath. Going away from her scent, my senses calm down as I shift into my wolf, approaching the bordering forest. My paws hit the ground, and the cold winds on my fur calmed my chaotic mind. I have to meet her once to know if she has betrayed me. And with this thought, I roared, looking at the moon, making the ground shake under my feet.
