10. I love you
I felt weak, weaker than I ever had before. It was as though I didn't have the ability to move, which I was pretty sure I didn't, I didn't even have the strength to try and find out. As I sniffed the air I caught alpha's scent and winced inwardly, he was going to be mad, he'll mad didn't even cover what my mate had to have been feeling. Just as the thought came to mind the door slowly opened and I finally noticed I was back in Alpha's room, and he was about to walk through the door. I quickly prepared a speech, weather to defend myself or apologise I wasn't sure but it all faded away when I saw his expression. His eyes were dull, like he was grieving and his stance reminded me of someone ready to put up a fight to save what was theirs.
"Alpha?" I asked in a whisper, unsure of what to do, what to say. He looked so lost, so afraid.
"You're awake, thank god, how are you feeling baby?" He asked and I was thrown, thank god? What had happened to me exactly, I didn't like not knowing. Also he had called me baby, Alpha never called me anything except mate or Omega so that too was disturbing.
"I'm fine, well I can't seem to move but other than that... Alpha what's wrong?" I asked because something wasn't right, I could see it in his eyes. Instead of answering me he climbed into bed with me and rolled me until my head was resting against his chest and his arms were wrapped tightly around my waist. Now it was clear something was wrong, his moves seemed too gentle and too desperate, like he was terrified I'd disappear at any second. For a long moment we didn't speak, I was too afraid to break the silence and I think he was too. Finally he spoke.
" You know I love you right?" He whispered to me, I moved my head up as much ask could to look at him, his expression was deadly serious.
"Of course I know that." I whispered back and this seemed to satisfy him because he nodded kissed my cheek and pulled up the quilt until it coved my shoulders and most of him. I snuggled into his warmth and hopped that when I woke up, everything would be ok again.
