IN THE ARMS OF MY ALPHA By Cassandra M Chapter 6

Chapter 6 


I didn’t know what took over me.

My heart was thudding loudly when Caspian told me that Miss Shannon was on her way to us. I was jealous and frantic.

All I knew was that I wanted her away from Caspian. And even though I knew that Caspian might scold me later, I took the risk.

And I was glad I did.

The moment his lips touched mine, the world stopped. I forgot why I was doing this. All I could feel was his soft lips brushing against mine.

Caspian didn’t move his lips, he wasn’t kissing me back, and m y confidence was already slipping away, but I knew I wanted this. We might not end up together, but what do I have to lose now when I didn’t have anything to begin with?

He couldn’t be mine, but I didn’t want him with Shannon or any other female.

So I kept kissing him, parting my lips as I sucked gently on his, enjoying the taste of his warm and soft lips.

I was about to back away when I felt his hand cup the back of m y head and press my head closer to his as his lips began to kiss

me back, softly sucking my lips until he deepened them. My eyes opened wide when I realized he was kissing me back, as m y hands gripped his shirt tightly, begging for support as my knees started to wobble and tingles were rushing everywhere i n my body. I had never felt this kind of excitement in my life.

He was kissing me back, and I was losing my grip on reality.

I had been kissed before. Riley had kissed me, but it wasn’t like this. His kiss was bland, maybe because I didn’t have any feelings for him, but with Caspian, his kisses were explosive. H e was kissing me softly, yet it was

Are you okay?” He asked immediately after he pulled back, his lips glistening with wetness, and I couldn’t hide the bewildered state I was in. Did he really kiss me back?

I swallowed hard as I slowly let go of his shirt, my eyes darting to its crumpled state. “Oh, Goddess! I messed up your clothes! “I stated in a panic as I started to brush off his shirt to smooth it.

Caspian laughed, and I was enchanted by him again. My head tilted up to look at his face. He had an amused look in his eyes as he stared at me, his hands gripping mine and clasping them together with his, and placing them on his chest.

“I think you were successful in driving Shannon away. I don’t know where she is now.”

I just nodded and smiled meekly. I totally forgot that I kissed him because of Miss Shannon.

“And I think we just made a show here…”

My brows furrowed as I followed her line of sight and saw some of my batchmates looking at us.

Shit! I just made a spectacle of myself. My friends knew that Caspian was my guardian, and here I was, kissing him.

“I want to get out of here now,” I said in a low voice, dropping my gaze to the floor.

He nodded his head and took my hand, entwining it with his. H e picked up my pouch that was sitting on the table and guided me as we made our way towards the exit of the ballroom.” Relax. You didn’t do anything wrong.” He said it in a calm voice.

“Are you not going to scold me for kissing you?”

“No. I haven’t had a kiss since I became an Alpha, so it was refreshing. A nice kiss actually.”

I pulled my arm away from him and stopped walking to face him. My eyes squinted, “You’re joking! You had a girlfriend when I left for boarding school!”

“Correction. I had. But I broke it off after Dad died and I became an Alpha. It was before you left.”

“And you never had a girlfriend after that?”

He shook his head, and I felt fuzzy inside.

He let out a deep sigh and took my hand again, “Can we continue walking now?”

I nodded my head and moved my body closer to his side, my free hand holding on to his arm as we continued to walk outside of the ballroom. I should stop asking questions about women in his life because I might stumble into something that would hurt me, but I couldn’t stop digging.

“And no flings? No side chicks?”

“No time for those. I have a pack to run.”

“Wow! Must be boring.”

“No. I was just saving myself for someone.”

“Your mate? She’ll be lucky to have you.”

“You just said I was boring. How can she be lucky?”

“I didn’t say you’re boring. I said it must be boring for a man like you not to have a female with him.”

“Not when you already have in mind who you want.”











“Are you not going to scold me for kissing you?” Her voice came out soft, almost inaudible. I couldn’t help the smile tugging at my lips.

Scold her for kissing me? She’s got to be kidding me. It was the fucking highlight of my night.

“No. I haven’t had a kiss since I became an Alpha, so it was refreshing. A nice kiss actually.”

Fuck me now! What the fuck was that answer? I should be flirting already, and yet I sounded cold. A nice kiss? What the fuck was wrong with me.

I have no fucking idea how to redeem myself from this mess. I was answering her as I would answer during Alpha meetings. I should have taken lessons from Jacob on how to fucking flirt o r woo females.

“I didn’t say you’re boring. I said it must be boring for a man like you not to have a female with him.”

“Not when you already have in mind who you want.” I stopped in the middle of the road a few meters away from the parking lot and faced her. It’s fucking now or never.

“What do you mean? Do you have a female in mind? Will you claim her on the Claiming?” She bit her lower lip as she gazed up at me. Her eyes were showing emotions I wasn’t sure I was ready to see. Her pains. Was she jealous that I wanted to claim another female?

I smiled at her and pulled off my coat, putting it nicely around her body to cover her. I was ready to make my next move, to tell her directly to the point that she was the one I was waiting

for when a fucking car headlight beamed on us.

Andrea scooted into my chest to block off the lights from her eyes as I moved our bodies to the sidewalk, internally cursing the driver of the car. Of all the fucking moments, he chose to drive past us now.

Andrea pulled her body away from me and started walking towards the parking lot, “It’s okay, Caspian. You don’t need to tell me who it is. I probably don’t know her anyway.” 

Fuck! I punched the air with my coiled fist as I walked after her, letting out an annoyed sigh.

“Car is here!” I called after her, and she immediately returned t o the direction I indicated.

“Should I drive you to your dormitory or do you want to come t o the hotel with me?” I asked her as I brought the engine to life. “I could book you your own room.”

Come with me. Please.

“Ummm…” She tilted her head up and looked at me, biting her lower lip. “Can I come to the hotel with you? I don’t want to see them. They’ll probably ask about the kiss.”

“To the hotel then. We can just pass by tomorrow for the rest o fyour things before we drive home.”

“Okay.” She said softly, leaning her head against the window.

“Are you okay?”

My head is spinning a little.”

“You drink a little too much, probably.”


“We’ll be at the hotel soon.”

We drove in silence throughout the ten-minute drive. As soon as we entered the hotel lobby, I asked her to wait for me on one of the couches in the reception area.

“Why? Where are you going?”

“At the reception, I’m going to book you your own room.”

“No need. I can stay with you. Don’t spend money on me, Caspian. This hotel is the most expensive in this place, and I bet it would cost a fortune. I can sleep on the couch in your room or on the floor. Maybe just request an extra blanket.”

I stayed silent as I stared at her. I wasn’t contemplating the money. But the thought of us staying in one room was something I wasn’t prepared for.

And fuck me if I let her sleep on the couch or floor.

Yes, but let’s save money. Right! That’s the fucking reason I was saying yes to this because we needed to save money! Ha!

“Fine. I’ll take the couch then.” I placed my hand on her back a s I guided her towards the elevator.

Sleep won’t be easy tonight, but I’ll take this anytime, anywhere.
