I snarled as I felt my wolf start to become restless. I shouldn't have let her go...I should have stopped her. Damnit! I wouldn't be able to forgive myself ever if something happened to her.
I looked up and noticed Nichole still standing there and looking at me with wide eyes. I growled threateningly but he squared her shoulder and stood in front of me. Did she have a death wish or something?
I was completely angry right now and the only one who could calm me down was my mate and rig now I knew that Nat was in danger. I didn't have the time to deal with Nichole.
"Listen, I don't know what you want but leave right now. I have other thing to worry about" I said in my Alpha tone and Nichole bent her head down and I quickly walked away from her. My wolf hissed as we passed him and I tried to contact him, but he pushed me away. My wolf never did that.
Shaking my head, I made my way towards the Alpha office where I knew my dad would be. I knocked hurriedly and waited for him to answer. I couldn't lose my control and just attack or go hunting for Nat. She needed me right now and the only right thing I could do was track her down and have a proper plan.
I pushed the door open and stepped in, locking it behind me. My dad raised his eye as he took in my scent. I could see the satisfied smile that spread across his face. He was glad that I had mated. For him it was being saved from death.
"So, you are mated?" He asked genuinely happy and I nodded mutely. This wasn't the topic I wanted to talk about. I needed to find Nat and I just hopped that she was alright.
"Nat has been kidnapped. She had gone to her pack house to get some clothes and I even spoke to her in mind link but then felt a sudden pain in my head. She has been hurt and I need to find her. I need the best trackers of this pack. I need to get her back" I stated as I looked at my father right in the eye.
I didn't know what he would say but I was sure as hell wishing that it would be a yes. I really did need to get her back. She meant everything to me. No matter what anyone said. She was my mate. Period.
"And what makes you think I will just handover my trackers to you?" My dad asked making me turn towards him in anger. I snarled dangerously as I heard his words.
"BECAUSE SHE IS MY MATE" I growled banging my fists against his table, successfully breaking it into half.
His eyes flashed dangerously as he saw the broken table. He stood up from his chair and made his way out of the office. I didn't know what he was thinking or going to do but I still followed him. I had to convince him for help otherwise I would go in search of Nat on my own.
He stopped walking as we exited the pack house. I frowned as he made his way towards the clearing to face me.
"We will fight. The person who wins continues to be the Alpha. You win you do what you want. But I will no sacrifice my trackers for a bitch that was just to stupid" my father growled and the last ounce of respect I had for him slid to pieces.
He was no father of mine. He was just a heartless bastard.
I crouched down to my fighting position and called out to my wolf. We had to do it. I would take this pack and make it the most incredible pack that has ever existed.
I opened my eyes they were foggy and I winced as the light hit my face. I was blinded for a minute but my eyes quickly adjusted to it.
"You are awake at last" Mates voice rang deep and clear and I turned to look at him and growled. I noticed that my legs and hands were chained to the bed and I was lying in a dark red dress that was ripped all over.
"What do you think your doing? Where the hell am I?" I growled angrily and Mate stood up and slapped me across the face. I bit back a retort as I looked back at him. Pure hate. That's what I felt for him.
"You will not speak until you are addressed" he warned and turned towards a dark end of the room and nodded his head.
I turned to look at him confused and then I felt someone move towards me. I quickly barred my teeth as the person came in view. I gasped and tried to move away as I saw the face.
"Arua... You are supposed to be dead!" I said looking at her confused and not being able to believe what I was seeing. The old witch of the house was alive. But... Then why were the witches still after the pack?
"It is nice to see that few still remember me" the witch hissed softly and sat on the chair besides the bed. Her dark black hair was cascading down her back, all entangled and dirty. Her dark green eyes had just a hint of yellow in them and her teeth were as sharp as a werewolf. But, she was supposed to be a witch, so what were the features?
I turned and looked at Mate and them back at Arua and then felt slightly weird. They seemed to have a bond, not like a mated bond but something strong.
"What do you want from me?" I asked as I shook my head a little and focused on the matter at hand. Arua looked at me for some time before motioning Mate to leave. Mate looked like he wanted but with a wave of her fingur, he turned around and closed the door.
The scent of magic hit me hard. "You used magic on him?"
"Why do you seen so shocked about it? I do what I need to" She said again andd them aimed her finger at me. Arua suddenly snarled and stood up. She looked at me with pure hatred and I shrank back, trying to understand what had happened.
"Never! IT NEVER WORKES ON YOU" she screamed as she came towards me and ran her nailes up my shoulder. I winced as he nails cut through my skin and a trail of blood poored out.
"What is wrong with you?"
Arua stopped and looked at me. It was like she was studying me or something but I couldn't guess. "Whenever I try to use magic on you it never workes. You always bloody get alive"
I looked at her trying to gather the information. Her magic didn't work on me? Wait! "When have you tried to use magic on me?" I asked.
Arua looked at me and smiled cruely. "Mate offcourse. But, dont blame the poor boy he didnt even know what he was doing, along with the rest of the pack. That Jacob, incident was my favourite, but unfortunately I had forgotten about Mate and lost my control on him. But for all these years they all have been under control. None of them knew what they were doing to you. They couldnt remember anything. If you ever saw Mate when he went all soft and nice that was when he wasnt in my control...But, I never let that control slip for more that a few minutes".
I felt tears streaming down my face as I thought about what she has just said. Mate hadn't meant to do any of it. It wasnt his fault. He was under a spell and all this time I hated him so much, when he was just being controlled.
"Are those your pathetic tears I see? You know I always knew Mate was my Mate. He told me that when he was just a little boy. And that is where everything started. The betrayal, by your parents so you had to be punished...But there is so much more to it poor Natalie. So much that you dont know. And that boy Jaxon, mark my words. He isn't your mate. I just added that twist to make you think you had a second chance" Arua finished laughing loudly and I whispered.
What had my parents done for me to deserve this? What the hell was going on?
Jax, I am sorry...
God! What was I going to do?
