Fated To The Alpha by Jessica Hall Chapter 45
I could tell she was upset with what she was told. She barely said anything
for most of the day. The fact she also couldn’t leave the house at the moment was also bringing her down.
“What’s going on with you, what are you thinking?” I ask plopping down on the lounge next to her where she was staring off vacantly.
“Are you upset she isn’t your mother?” I ask her.
“She is my mother,” she says simply.
“You know what I mean” I tell her but she shakes her head.
“She raised me, she is my mother” she says staring off out the window. I touch her hand and she pulls it away, my stomach sinking. She had been off ever since they left and had barely let me touch her. Ignoring her weird mood I pull her on my lap but she just climbs off and walks out of the room.
“Kat?” I yell after her as she runs upstairs.
Mateo walks in looking up the stairs where she just ran off to before looking at me.
“Everything alright?” He asks. I shake my head before sitting back on the couch and resting my head on the back of it.
Mateo sits next to me and drops his hand on my knee.
“She is probably just in shock, it was a lot of information to take in” he says.
“Yes but she doesn’t have to outright reject me, she has been off since they left” I tell him.
“I don’t know, maybe just leave her be for a bit or see if Jasmine can cheer her up” Mateo says.
“Jasmine is at school” I tell him.
“Want me to talk to her?” He asks and I shrug, I didn’t care, I just wanted my mate back.
“You can try, don’t think it will do any good though”
“How about I go get some stuff and I will see if Jasmine wants to come have a girls night with her or something?” Mateo suggests. It might work.
“Yeah you do that, while I try to talk to her” I tell him before walking up the stairs and heading to our room. Pushing the door open I fixed earlier, I found she wasn’t in there. I sniff the air trying to pick up her scent before turning and walking down the hall.
I twist the handle to find it locked. “Kat, open the door” I tell her, I could handle her mood but her locking herself away and hiding from me was now P!ssing me off.
“Just go away Alpha”
Alpha? That F*cking word again. I have never despised my own title so much as when she refers to me by it.
“What did I say about calling me that, now open the door?” She ignores me and I walk off to our room retrieving the key from the bedside drawer and walking back and unlocking the door. Kat was on the bed and I could smell the saltiness of her tears before hearing her sniffle.
Walking over to the bed, I sit next to her and run my fingers through her silky hair but she turns away and rolls over.
“I understand you’re upset about your parents, Kat. But please don’t shut me out” I tell her.
“I’m not upset about my parents,” She says. I could feel Maddox pressing forward worriedly.
“You can reject me, I understand, so just do it” she says. Huh?
Maddox growls at her words, his anger bursting out of me and making her jump. “Why is she talking about rejecting her, what did you do to her?” He demands.
“I don’t know, I am not rejecting her” I snap at him as he tries to fight me for control.
“Fix it now or I will” he growls back at me.
“I am not rejecting you, why would you even think that?” I ask her, trying to roll her over to face me but she doesn’t budge.
“I don’t know what has got into you but when you want to tell me, come and Bl**dy find me Kat” I tell her. Maddox becomes agitated that I was leaving her on her own.
I walk downstairs and into my office. I work for a bit. Going over pack business and patrol schedules. Mateo wandered into the room and dropped in the seat on the other side of my desk.
“Jasmine will be over after school, here I got her these for you” he says handing me a bag. I open it and find art stuff making me look at him.
“She likes drawing, that’s what she wanted from home the other day when she cut her leg open,” he said.
“Thank you” I tell him, putting it aside. I was a little upset that he knew that about her but I didn’t.
“You get her to speak to you?” He asks and I shake my head.
“Nope, and she hasn’t left the room upstairs either, she told me I could reject her, that she would understand” I tell him, dropping my head in my hands as I leaned on the desk.
“Reject her?” He asks, taken aback.
“That’s what she said, And she won’t tell me anything else, I also snapped at her. I didn’t mean to but she won’t F*cking answer me”
“Go take those up to her and it will give you a reason to try to speak to her again” he says tapping the bag.
“When will Jasmine be over?” I ask, praying she can get answers from her.
“After school,” he says with a shrug. I nod, taking the bag of stuff he got her. Walking upstairs she was still in the room and that alone aggravated me.
I walked over scooping her up while she was still wrapped in the blanket like it was her own personal cocoon. She stirs, before squirming to be put down but I just hold her tighter, her efforts futile.
I dropped her on our bed before placing the bag on the bedside table. “You want to be mad fine, but be mad in our room” I tell her before climbing on the bed.
She tries to unravel the blankets that were tucked around her but I pull her to me leaving her trapped, well she can’t escape me now.
“Struggle all you want, I am not letting you out until you tell me what’s wrong” I told her as she thrashed.
“Ezra let me up, you’re making me claustrophobic” she says and I chuckle at her before letting go. She unravels the blankets before going to get up but I grab her, shoving her back down and moving between her legs. I kiss her cheek, then the side of her mouth before nipping at her neck. She moans before realising what she did and trying to shove me off.
“Ezra stop,” she says, grabbing my face. I sigh leaning on my elbows so I don’t squash her petite frame.
“Why, I want you” I tell her and I could tell she wanted me to her arousal perfuming the room. I run my nose across her shoulder and neck, my cock twitching in my pants as I inhale her intoxicating scent.
“I can’t give you an heir,” she says, making me pull back and look at her. Was this what she has been upset about?
“Well not now, but we will figure it out” I tell her.
“I have kids I can die, you need kids to pass your title down and I can’t give you that” she says.
“Is this why you have been avoiding me, because you think you can’t have kids with me?” She looks away and I know I am right.
“We will have kids but not anytime soon, your 18 Kat. I don’t expect that of you right now”
“But you do expect it of me?” I sigh she thinks I would reject her because she can’t have kids?
“Yes but not right now, not until we find a way to break the curse Kat. I won’t put your life in danger” I tell her annoyed that she thinks I only want her to produce the next Alpha.
“And if we can’t?”
“Then we adopt like normal people do” I tell her.
“But they wouldn’t be yours,” she says.
“Yeah, just like you aren’t your mother’s Kat, yet that didn’t stop her from loving you and you her. I am not rejecting you, just because you are convinced you won’t be having kids, you are mine and I am yours nothing will ever change that and I mean nothing Kat” I tell her.
