Athena Harris POV
I am lying on the bed as my captor Kane, took pleasure from my body. I blocked my mind from his grunts as he took whatever he wanted from my body. I was exhausted as they used me one after other. They fed me. I was restrained, abused, beaten and forced upon. I don’t have any recall of my past. Once they were done, they leave me alone.
There were no more tears. It is been five years. All hope was lost of someone rescuing me. Time is running. I had no idea how long it was. They left me with my undies only. I was tied to the bed post and shivering.
All of sudden there was commotion outside. Several voices can be heard outside the room.
‘what is that?’ I think to myself. Fear was constant presence in my mind. After all that I have been through, I always try to be hyper active of surroundings.
I try to get up, but due to the lack of energy, I could not get up and slumped back on the bed. That is when the door opens and three guys filled the doorway. There were some deep growls coming from their throats. I don’t understand why they were growling like animals.
As I am captured from the past few years, I have mastered the art of hiding my pain and fear from my tormentors. These are strangers. One guy in his mid-twenties comes forward. I try to get up but to no avail.
Don’t come any closer” I warn them once again. I barely spoke with my captors. Once he is near, I get up with all my strength and push him. He does not even budge. He is well built with strong personality.
“Who are you?” he growls darkly at me. I numb myself to any kind of pain. His stance was apart and his body language rigid. He is ready to tackle me as if I would try run away.
“I asked you something?” I gasp in pain when he roughly jerks me in upward position. That’s when he sees me bleeding. He starts swearing under his breath. What he does next, surprised me.
I watched with confused eyes as he removes his jacket and wraps it around me. My eyes held so many questions. The guy looks at me and his face softens. He touches my upper lip and my I grit my teeth due to the pain. That does not go unnoticed by him.
“Who hurt you?” he asks me.
I clear my throats as he waits patiently.
“Are you here to rescue me?” I ask instead.
Instead of replying, he picks me up in his arms. Immediately I start struggling and scratching his face. in one swift move, the other guys restrained me. The guy who picked me glares at them. In second, they leave me.
After that his dark eyes turns towards me.
“Cease with the struggle little one. I am not going to hurt you” I don’t reply as my mind froze for few minutes on the spot. I went down memory lane with those words. The guy is walking out of the room.
“They said the same thing” I whisper quietly.
“Who?” he gives me a questioning look. I breath in his scent. I had no idea, how he heard me.
“my captors” I murmured.
He tightened his hold on to me.
“They will not bother you ever again” he promised. I was not someone to believe a stranger’s words so I kept numb.
Not long, we walked out of the house and into the open area. There were trees around everywhere. After walking for few minutes, we reach a big house. There was no one around. We walk closer to the house. All of sudden I hear a feral voice, something like a growl and a guy in his early twenties walks out.
My spine stiffened and the stranger who is carrying me, felt it but does not say anything.
“Alpha, we found a rogue on the far end of the pack grounds”
I am confused but did not utter a single word. His glare was menacing as he prowls near me. What confused me was the way he sniffed me. He passed me a disgusted look.
“Put her down” he commands the stranger. The guy who is carrying me, immediately puts me down and moves back. The Alpha, who they were addressing as, circles around me. I watch as people were gathering around. And I am feeling self-conscious.
After that he roughly tilts my head and makes me look at him.
“Alpha, she is…” starts the guy who rescued me but was interrupted by a ferocious growling. His knuckles were digging in my chin as his dark eyes glare me.
“You are nothing but used good” I gasp with the humiliation he wrought upon we with his statement.
My vision gets blurry as I try to breathed through my nose.
He chokes my throat and I gasp for breath. He pushes me away.
“take her away from me” he orders and walks out of there. I fainted as I watch him walk away through my blurry vision.
Early morning, I come out of Xerxes room. I had a very disturbing nightmare the previous night. To find some peace and solace, I escaped to Xerxes room. He is someone who cares for me deeply in this pack. He comforted me when it should have been my mate. At least that is what I know, a mate should be doing.
As I was walking down a deserted hallway of the pack house, I am roughly pulled into a room. I gasp and tug my hand, but the person is not budging. I raise my head to snap at the person, but close my mouth shut when it is none other than my mate, Alpha Aedion.
“You are hurting me” I stated with angry eyes as he tightened his hold onto me.
“You are nothing but a worthless b***h who sleeps around” it hurt me deeply. His words were pricking my heart as he carries on
“you are the dirt beneath my shoes” he growls as he bangs my back on the wall. I take deep breath, but no words come out.
“Don’t you have any manners?” he sniffs me and took in my appearance I am wearing my night wear and pants.
I give him a confused look. But with his next words, realization dawns on me
“doing the walk of shame” he smirks.
The next second, his expression changes “you disgust me” he glares at me with deep hatred.
“Aedion...” I start only for him to back handle me.
I gasp in shock because this is the first time, he is doing this.
Glaring me in the eyes, he asks “Did you think I would accept a w***e and b***h like you as my mate?” he tugs at my head.
“You smell like him” he snaps angrily.
Throughout all this, my heart is weeping with the pain caused by my mate.
“I Alpha Aedion Russell of the mystic shadow pack reject you Athena Harris as my mate”
With that he tramples me on the ground and steps on my hand as he walks out on me.
