8. My mate
She was gone, I knew it before I was fully awake. Something in me had demanded my waking, and I was all too relieved that it had. I had woken to find that Omega no longer lay next to me sleeping, the door was open. She had gone, Damn I knew I shouldn't have fallen asleep! I jumped out of bed and ran to the door, her scent still hung in the air making me realise she hadn't been gone long. I could still find her and bring her home, she would be alright, she had to be alright. I had meant to remain human, I wanted to be able to call out her name when I went looking for her. However my wolf had other plans, he heard my pain and worry and desperation and forced me to phase. My wolf had never forced me before, honestly it scared me. I paid little attention to it, Omega was out there and I needed to find her. I traced her scent all over, what the hell had she been doing? It was only when I caught another scent that I started speeding. A scream echoed around me and I pushed myself harder. Finally I came to a clearing, and saw my mate lying in the cold snow. She was naked and obviously had recently been in her wolf form, Lucas was human too, also very naked. I saw what he intended to do, and rushed at him, refusing to let him touch Omega. I tackled him to the floor, having to stop myself from ripping him apart. When I heard Omega moan I jumped away from Lucas and over to her, gently nudging her with my muzzle.
"Alpha..." Omega's voice was barely a whimper, a quick sniff to the air told me something was wrong. Omega was bleeding.
