My name is Anaiah Ross. The most hated wolf in the pack, when I shifted into my wolf for the first time, I killed Tomas Rivers, our Alpha's brother, who attempted to r**e me.
Tomas Rivers was a pedophile who used to touch me inappropriately when no one was watching. That's why I'm not sorry I killed him.
Since that day, the pack has been mistreating and bullying me. They beat, starve, and make me clean the pack house day in and day out.
I tried to tell them it was only self-defense, but they didn't believe me. Tomas' wife, Leah, denied all the accusations and said that her husband was a perfect man. I know she knows the truth.
My parents turned their backs on me because, after the murder, they were demoted from their Gamma status to Omegas. Omegas are considered the weakest link of the pack, others are strong, but most are just cleaners and help out around the pack. They have no major role, like fighting in wars or any important pack political business.
"Where is that b***h!" Leah sneers. I roll my eyes because of everyone here. She makes my life a living hell. I was supposed to be banished after I killed Tomas, but my parents pleaded and asked on my behalf, saying it was my first shift and lost control.
I get out of my room, it is almost an old walk-in closet next to the storeroom on the second floor. There is a mattress and an old broken mirror. I only have a few clothes, shoes, and a collection of my favorite books.
I mentally prepare myself for all the insults and beating I'll receive. Once in the main room, Leah is standing elegantly in a long dress and heels, one hand on her hip as she taps her feet against the floor in impatience, the other hand holding a yellow fabric that she throws in my face as soon as I'm at arm's reach. I remove it from my face and throw it on the floor, annoyed.
"Um..." I trail, pointing at the dress on the floor. Leah is livid now, and I didn't expect her to slap me and blood splatter from my nose as I fall to the ground from the impact. She kicks me once again in the stomach, and I grunt.
"I told you to hand wash it!" She yells. I cover my face with my arms as I take blow after blow.
It has been like this since her husband died, and I'm here to take all her hate.
I go to the Omega bathroom to clean myself. The cold water hits my body, and I shiver.
I change my clothes and leave the bathroom, going to get started on breakfast.
The pack-house has over 100 people staying here who live in luxurious suites with their families, while others who are unmated or without families have designer rooms.
With only a few other Omegas to help me, I prepared a full English breakfast.
I start to serve when I see Amos, our future Alpha and one of the strongest wolves in the pack. He is Cassanova, but I have a small crush on him.
He mostly irritates me and bullies me like others. The last time I spilled coffee on his girlfriend, Eunice, he slapped me. My wolf wanted to fight back, but I knew he could end our lives.
Amos's eyes met mine, and he visibly stiffened and widened his eyes. I ignore his weird behavior and continue serving breakfast. Ignoring all the snarky comments they are throwing my way, I look at my parents, but they only glare at me with hate. I swallow and inhale, walking away sadly. Tears well in my eyes but I don't cry. I can't be weak. I need to leave this place once I'm eighteen and start a new life, so I promised myself to be strong. I will survive. I will take all the beating.
'Don't worry, our mate will love us,' beams my wolf, Chalo.
A mate is a soulmate that completes a wolf's life. My wolf has been wanting one since we learned what mates are, and she believes he will save us from all the pain and torture. He will love us forever, and together we will have a beautiful family I didn't have.
I see a few students going to school, and I smile. I miss school even though all they did was prank me, but my teachers were good to me because I was a straight-A student and would win most competitions. The Alpha and Luna stopped my education in my sophomore year because they said they couldn't waste their resources on me when all I'm good for is cleaning and cooking, and let's face it, I wasn't going to get into a good college.
When I finish my chores, I go to get some vitamin D outside as my skin was too pale due to being indoors. I smile when the sun hits my skin and my wolf purrs. I hid in the bleachers while watching the warriors of the pack train. I like to observe them while they train so that I can know some basics about defending myself.
The Dawnrise is not the strongest and has survived this far by maintaining a good relationship with other strong packs like the Lycans. Dawnrise's worst fear is angering them. Hence, every year, they hold a ceremony to renew their treaties. They feast and celebrate alliances that were made many years ago.
I feel a hand roughly grab my hair from behind. I fall on my back facing the sky. Eunice is standing over me with her arms crossed over her chest with a triumphant smile. I scowl and try to get up, but a kick in my stomach stops me. She and her two bimbos hit me several times, and she snarls.
"Don't make eye contact with my boyfriend again!"
