Ashley meets her best friend Emma’s hot older brother at a Halloween party and neither one of them can deny their instant connection but Emerson must leave Ashley for Alpha training where he will gone for over two years. When he returns to find his mate in the arms of his rival Alpha what will he do? What secret has Ashley been hiding?
“Please,” she begs now on her knees crying. “Please stop fighting,” she whimpers between sobs. “Don’t hurt him.”
Shadow instantly retracts his claws and gives me back control. He is scaring our mate and the moment he realizes what he is doing he stops he would never purposefully cause her harm or terror. I hop off Adam and rush over to our mate. Dropping on my knees I pull her into my embrace feeling the sparks fly every single place our skin touches, she truly is our mate. She starts struggling against my embrace and I back away slightly confused. She looks hurt and scared of me which is like a punch to the gut. I sit back on my feet and let her go to which she instantly scrambles over to Adam.
“Are you ok,” she asks and the concern in her voice eats at me.
“Yes My love I’m fine,” he says reaching up and cupping the side of her face.
All I see is red and it takes everything in me not to attack him again. Bradley and Emma are both trying to hold me back. I keep thinking if I attack there’s a chance I could hurt Ashley and I refuse to put her in any more danger. I just need her away from him so I can explain what we are to each other. I hate myself for wasting so much time with her. I should of explained everything the first weekend we met. I should of trusted my wolf’s instincts that she was our mate and just marked her the first night we’re together. Instead I put so much distance between us and that led her right into the arms of the Asshole Alpha.
“Come on let go to the room and get you cleaned up,” she says wrapping her arm around his waist after he manages to stand.
“Ashley we need to talk,” I plead pulling myself away from Bradley and Emma.
“Not now Emerson you’ve done enough,” she spits out harshly.
“Please Ash,” I beg.
“Emerson,” she says as she tries to move around me but I won't let her.
“Ashley, my beautiful mate and Luna, please listen to me,” I say desperately and do the only thing I feel would be right by dropping to my knees in front of her bowing my head slightly and bear my neck in submission to her.
Almost everyone in the hall gasps at the sight before them. Even Bradley seems extremely shocked at my last ditch effort to earn her forgiveness and stop her from leaving with him. Alpha’s were the leaders meant to be strong, feared, and unbreakable. They do not ask for forgiveness or submit to anyone and yet here I am submitting myself to the women I love, my mate, my luna. She looks around at all the shocked faces trying to figure out what is going on and then down at me.
“What are you doing Emerson,” she asks but I don't respond.
“He’s submitting to you Ash,” Emma speaks up softly behind me.
“I don’t know what that means,” she replies.
“It means this filthy little mutt is trying to whatever he can to get you to listen him but we aren’t going to do that,” Adam says roughly grabbing her wrist and yanking her past me.
I twist towards the direction they are heading and watched in horror as he drags my mate away from me.
