Fated To The Alpha by Jessica Hall Chapter 1
Another day in this Sh*t hole of a school, I was in my last year of highschool and I was glad this part of my life was nearly over, soon I wouldn’t have to put up with the constant torment of being the freak of our Pack. I was planning only three more months of school to go and I was free, to choose never to see these arseholes again.
My father was the Beta of the Pack, he was a highly regarded pack member so imagine his disappointment when he discovered I had no wolf. I was the freak of the pack, the wolf-less girl. Our school was a pack school with only werewolves, no humans allowed, so you could imagine what hell it has been for me here. I was basically human, shamefully so.
My parents are the best though, my pack may shun me but not once have they even entertained the idea, always telling me I was a late bloomer, that my wolf would come one day. I used to believe that story too, until now. I was nearly 18 at the age you can find your mate and still without my wolf. Most get there wolf when they are 13, I was well and truly past that deadline.
I had just sat down to eat my lunch in the cafeteria when I heard my name called over the PA system. “Katya Hartley please report to the front office” The middle aged woman who works as the schools secretary announces. The entire cafeteria laughs and boo chucking food at me as I leave.
For the most part I try to remain invisible, which is near impossible when you’re Beta’s daughter and your mother is one of the leading Pack warriors. Chucking my bag over my shoulder I pulled a chunk of lettuce from my chocolate brown hair that was stuck when Thomas chucked his burger at my head.
Ew and it had mayo on it, I groaned using the sleeve of my jumper to wipe my hair that was covered in the white gunk.
I walk through the green corridors toward the head office, racing across the quad I see the brown door to the office, my safe place no one messes with me there. Mrs Mason was a scary woman, so no one caused drama in the front office. Just as I was nearly at the door. Tabitha and her goonies step in front of me.
Tabitha was Alpha’s daughter and her brother Darian was next in line for Alpha both of them were my nemesis.
“Hey freak” Tabitha sneers at me blocking my path. I try to step past her but she sidesteps.
“What do you want, Tabitha?” I ask, we used to be friends well until everyone found out I had no wolf, then I became the laughing stock of the school.
“Oh nothing just came to give you the proper send off” She says and my brows furrow.
“What do you mean?” I ask, shaking my head, her blue eyes brightening maliciously.
“You havent heard, My father has bannished you from the Pack so I thought I would come see you, say my goodbyes to the unwanted Beta’s daughter” She says and Bianca and Maril laugh at her not so funny joke, she geez those girls were just as stupid as they looked, if they weren’t beautiful I can guarantee, no one would put up with their antics.
I feel something wet and cold run down my face just as the office door opens, Meril dumping her milkshake over my head and it seeps into the crocheted jumper my mother made me.
“Tabitha Elizabeth Blackwell, is there a reason you are tormenting my daughter?” My asks her dark hair pulled back in a high ponytail, she was strong woman, stern and brought fear amongst the she-wolves including the Luna of the Pack after my mother kicked her a$s in training in front of the entire pack for saying I should be put down at birth I was that useless to the Pack, if she wasn’t the only female Pack warrior my mother definitely would have been punished for embarrassing the Luna, but everyone knew Alpha Jackson always had the hots for my mother, had since they were kids and was disappointed when she turned out not be his mate.
Tabitha’s smile falls as she twirls around to face my mother who was stalking directly toward her. Meril and Bianca take off afraid to face her wrath.
“It was an accident” Tabitha stutters out, and to think this pathetic girl was an Alpha Female and scared of my mother I couldn’t help the smirk that crept onto my face, her fear so pungent I was shocked she didn’t soil herself.
“What I wasn’t expecting wasn’t expecting was for my mother to raise her hand and slap her across the face. Tabitha squeals loudly, her head whipping to the side and the outline of my mothers hand imprints on her face. I cover my mouth with my hands. Sh*t Alpha Jackson was going to kill her now, she just struck the Alpha’s daughter.
I heard a gasp and looked around to see a few people had seen what my mother had done, my mother stared them down, daring them to say something.
“Mum!” I exclaim in shock. Tabitha tucks tail and runs off crying.
“Always wanted to put that mutt in her place” My mother says before gripping my arms.
“Why do you put up with it?” She says grabbing my hands and raising them.
“You are trained better than any of these little Sh*ts here, you may not have a wolf but that has never stopped you from kicking their arses in training, I trained you, your father trained you. Use these they are beneath you just need to see it” She says.
I shake my head knowing it would just make my torment worse and my hands were no good against a shifted wolf.
“Come we are leaving” She says straightening up before turning on her heel and walking toward the car park. I chase after her before falling in line.
“What’s going on?” I ask, worried. Getting to the carpark I see a removalist truck parked next to our car.
“Mum what’s going on?” I ask when I see my father hop out of the car.
“Hey pumpkin,” My father says, walking over and embracing me.
“I know you like strawberry milkshakes. I didn’t know you wanted to wear it” He says swiping it off my head, before ringing out my hair. My mother goes to the trunk popping the boot before grabbing a water bottle.
“Tip your head back” My mother says and I do as she asks. She uses the water bottle to rinse my hair out before tearing my jumper up the side taking it off me.
“I will make you another” She says tossing it in the garbage can beside the truck.
“So is someone going to tell me what’s going on?” I ask. My father looks to my mother nervously.
“We are moving,” My father announces.
“Why, is what Tabitha said true, did they banish me, are you getting rid of me?” I ask, feeling sick to my stomach.
I only know of one other family in our pack who’s child didn’t have a wolf and they threw him away like trash, literally kicked him out and it is something I have always been worried about my parents getting rid of me like I never existed because I brought shame to the family.
“Yes what Tabitha said is true, Alpha Jackson has asked you to leave, this a werewolf only community and he wanted you gone once you hit 18”
“So you’re sending me away?” I ask, feeling tears brim. They were going to get rid of me, force me to go rogue.
“No of course not, you’re our baby, we knew this was coming so we made plans we are joining another pack and coming with you” My mother says.
“By the way, hun we should leave” My mother says walking around to the passenger side.
My father goes to ask why, but she gets in slamming the door.
“She slapped Tabitha,” I told him.
“Did she get her a good one?” My father says sending me a wink and I smile hopping into the back seat.
My father pulls away the truck following us.
“What about Dad, he is the Pack Beta?” I ask, worried knowing he would lose his title.
“I won’t be part of a pack that shuns my daughter, they want you gone then I go to” He says leaving no room for argument.
“Everything will work out dear, you’ll see” my mother says, gripping my knee.
“What pack would want a wolf-less pack member?” I ask.
“You’re not wolf-less, just a late bloomer your wolf will come Kat, you are born from two werewolf parents therefore are a werewolf” My mother says not wanting to see the truth, I was as useless as they say.
“We are moving to Black creek Pack, Alpha Ezra has kindly offered to take us in”
“Black Creek Pack? Isn’t the pack that just went to war with Blue Mountain Pack”
“Yes Katya, I know you’re scared but the Alpha is truly a nice guy, he was very understanding, beside I think he was pretty happy about stripping jackson of his Beta and only female warrior”
“Yeah but he killed their entire pack mum, he is a monster” I tell her. I was more scared of my so-called new Alpha than my current one. Everyone fears Alpha Ezra.
“I’m sure he had his reasons, besides it is not like anyone else was willing to take us in” My mother says leaving out the part about not taking me in.
“So he knows I have no wolf?” I ask knowing all packs were small communities solely of our kind. I was basically human so I was a little shocked he even agreed.
They both glance at each other, ” it won’t be an issue as long as you can prove yourself to be helpful around the pack” Great he doesn’t know and I will have to act like an omega slave I thought dryly. I fell asleep on the drive, only waking when we stopped at a storage shed. The drive took 5 hours total and I was exhausted and my back was killing. The removalists loaded our stuff into the storage shed before two men approached us.
