ELINA I hadn't come out of the shock yet when they both transformed back to their human form, and I had to turn my head quickly to avoid looking at their nakedness so close to me , which is stupid because in our species nudity is really common as it would be impossible to have clothes at hand when you transform back into your human form, and I shouldn't feel so ashamed to be next to two naked men. But the truth is, that knowing that the one who is standing there with his naked body in all his glory, is the current king or soon to be crowned king, makes me way too self-conscious to be around him, even though his coronation has been postponed to coincide with the festival of the blood moon , he has come exercising all his duties as king since the death of his grandfather, so not only he is the highest authority in the kingdom right now, he happens to also be one of the most handsome men I have seen in my life, I have heard from the other girls about his beauty, but I thought it was just stupid rumors, now I see they were absolutely right. "Ellie ... " Alpha Roger began to say, with a tone of concern and worried expression, but stopped immediately when he remembered who was standing next to him, and his tone changed to one of mock annoyance. "I mean, Elina, what do you think you are doing prowling in the woods after a Rogues attack? You know perfectly well that it is highly likely that they were looking for you of all people, and on top of that you let them hurt you, how are you going to go to work tomorrow like this?" He told me with a frown and his arms crossed over his chest, and although anyone else might think that he was really upset with me, I knew well that he was not, that in fact his face was furrowed with concern when he saw the blood that emanated from my chest and back. " Huh, so you are the Bloodmoon girl, " the king exclaimed in a strange tone that was almost like a mix between confussion and disappointment, which stir the curiosity in me. " Yes, I am ... " I started to say, and then alpha Roger shot me a warning look, so I quickly added: "... your majesty," “ Why didn't you completely transform before? You have alpha blood in you, you should be able to transform easily, ” he told me, but it seemed like he was talking more to himself than to me. "The late king ordered us that we could only teach her nothing but the essentials for her survival," Alpha Roger replied with his head slightly bowed, for it is instinctive for wolves to be submissive to their alphas, and although he too is an alpha, his might does not compare to an alpha who also has royal blood. But I do have it in me, and that is why I must constantly remind myself that it is disrespectful, and it seems almost like a challenge, that I do not automatically bow my head to my superiors , but it is not easy, my instinct is always to submit others to my authority and not the other way around, and I have been trying to fight those instincts my whole life. "Well, I think that today it has been more than evident that a complete transformation is essential for her survival , if it had not been for my arrival right now, we would be picking up the pieces of her body, that is assuming they would have left something behind," the king told Roger, and he looked at him with a confused expression, so the king went on to explain: "It is clear that she is more at risk than the rest of the people in our kingdom, except my own family, the Rogues will keep trying to attack her , she needs to know how to transform completely, and defend herself if she wants to live to have another birthday," he said as he looked me from head to toe, and I saw a slight expression of shock cross his face, but he pulled himself together so quickly that I was left with the impression that it was just a figment of my imagination. "So, you as her alpha should train her, or would you prefer to give the order to some beta to do it? " the king told alpha Roger, and Roger flushed slightly before muttering under his breath: "There is no one in my pack that is capable of total transformation, " "Well do it yourself then, or else send her to the palace to be trained by some warrior from the elite team, they should be able to train her fast enough, I don't want to deal with the consequences of her death in the hands of a rogue," the king said with a shrug , and I looked at Roger in terror, silently begging him not to send me to train at the palace, for then my plans for the competition of the blood moon would be completely ruined. "I will train her, your majesty, " Alpha Roger replied with a tilt of his head, and the king nodded absentminded before looking at me curiously once more, and then transforming again before our eyes , then quickly leaving without saying another word to neither of us. " Ellie, are you okay? " Alpha Roger asked me as soon as we were alone, and came over to help me get on my feet. "It was just a scratch, don't worry, " I replied, trying to pretend it didn't hurt, but the truth is that my flesh was burning and aching , and it was a bit difficult for me to breathe. " Come on, I will take you to your mother so she can heal those wounds," he told me as he took me carefully in his arms. "No, they will be very concerned if they find out about this , we cannot tell them, please," I quickly exclaimed. "Ellie, there were many warriors around, they probably have seen everything that just happened here, and if so, your parents will soon find out," he told me , and I sighed in defeat. " What were you doing in the forest alone?" he asked me, and I looked away quickly trying to avoid him seeing how nervous that question made me feel. " I was looking for some medicinal herbs," I lied, but it was evident that he did not believe a word. " Ellie, you know you are in greater danger than the rest of us, you can't be that reckless, you could have died today and your parents would have been heartbroken," he scolded me gently, as he used to whenever I got in trouble. “ That is why you must train me, so that I can defend myself and not be such an easy target the next time they try to attack me, and you know there is always a next time,” I told him with a hint of hope in my voice , and he shook his head in exasperation. " I must, they are orders from the king, " he told me in a tone that clearly indicated his disagreement with it. " Why don’t you want to train me? " I asked him with curiosity and a bit of pain at his obvious annoyance. " It is not that Ellie, it is just that your parents are going to be really worried when they find out about this, and they already have enough to deal with," he replied. " Well then let's not tell them anything," I proposed, as I wanted to use that opportunity to train for the competition without anyone interrupting me. " Are you sure?" he asked with a tone of uncertainty, and I nodded quickly, so it didn't take me long to convince him to keep it a secret , and that is how I ended up getting a much better trainer than forest tree trunks and my own memory. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - We spent the next two months training each afternoon in the forest , and in the meantime, my parents were under the conviction that I had been required in the palace for various tasks, according to what alpha Roger has told them , which scandalized my mother, as she believed that I had finally been called to lend a visit to the king's chambers , and we had a hard time convincing her that it was not the case at all. In our species, to know for sure that someone is your fated mate, you have to go through the mating ritual , or in other words, you have to f*ck all the people necessary to find your mate, so s*x in our species is not only far from being a taboo, but it is considered something essential for our society , however, my parents believed me to be safe from all this because of my family name, since no one in the kingdom would want their fated mate to be a social outcast from a kingdom in disgrace. And even with so much s*x between our kingdom, it was difficult, if not impossible, to find your fated mate , usually, alphas and betas had a better chance for it, especially alphas, so it had become almost a tradition since Bastian Vark turned twenty-one, that almost all the single girls and even those who are not , would come to pay a visit to the prince's chambers in the hope of being his fated mate, however, none of them had achieved their mission, even when many tried all sorts of tricks to make it happen, not understanding that this is something that cannot be forced. After a couple of years, the rumors began to spread, as it was more and more frequent that the crown prince refused to receive women in his chambers , and although at first it was speculated that he was powerless in bed matters , the closeness with Iris Cross, the daughter of who was the main Beta and right hand of King Collin Vark, and the sister of the actual beta of our kingdom, as soon as she joined the elite warriors, ignited the rumors that the two were a couple, and therefore the string of girls who waited at the gates of the palace decayed drastically, and people were only waiting for the announcement of their union any day, but such happy announcement never came. And now that his coronation is approaching rapidly , speculation has resurfaced again, as there are those who think that they will make the announcement during the festival, and thus the kingdom will once again have an alpha queen for the first time in decades, since the queen of the late King Collin, was murdered when her only son was twenty years old, and apparently, this was what caused the king to gradually become someone cruel and cold, because she was not only his queen , but also his fated mate, and according to the elders, this bond is so strong that some werewolves even die from the pain of the loss of their fated mate. None of this matters to me, however, as I know that I will not be able to find my mate in this kingdom, and maybe I will never be able to find him , but it is not something that causes me anguish as it does to most people in the kingdom, my main objective is much greater than finding my mate, my family name will return to its former glory and that is what I plan to do tomorrow when the festival of the blood moon begins. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
