I looked up at Mate and let out a massive sigh. Mousata had done what he promised, but I didn't know for how long. But I knew that I didn't have long to talk to Mate so I decided to make the most of it.
"Come here" I whispered and Mate turned at looked at me with a confused look on his face, and took a step towards me. He raised his hands and placed them on mine that were bound by chains. I moaned quietly as electricity flashed through my body and Mates big eyes snapped towards mine.
"You are my mate" He stated softly and looked at me straight into my eyes and I could see my reflection as I stared into his. He quickly caught grasp of the chains that were around my wrists and broke them, setting my wrists free from the heavy chains.
"Yes...yes I am" I whispered softly and smiled at him. As I glared into his eyes I could see the love with in him. How cruel could Arua be? To make mates stay away from each other and especially make her son suffer.
"There are things you need to know. But, can you remember anything?" I asked Mate and he looked at me confused. He suddenly winced and fell onto his knees. I placed my hand on his shoulder making him lift his head and look at me.
"Sorry, everything seems hazzy, I don't even know where I am"
My mind started to work as I continued to watch Mate. Arua couldn't use magic on me, but what if I marked Mate? What if he could be protected from her spells? Whatever Mate and I got intimate in the past, he would always stop before he could mark me and go back to his cruel self.
Arua was trying to ensure that Mate never ever marked me. So, if I could mark Mate, it may through Arua off and maybe save Mate from her spells.
"Mate, I know this will not make sense but I need to claim you." I stated as I looked at him pleadingly. I gulped as I noticed his eyes darken. He stepped closer to me and bent his head lower, smelling me.
"Your scent is mixed with another. You have already mated" he said softly and I could hear the pain laced in his tone. God! How could I explain this all to him? Would he even listen? Did I even have enough time?
"I know and that is why you need to let mark you. Mark me as yours also if you want. It needs to be done. I swear I have a reason." I begged and Mate closed his eyes, pinching the bridge of his nose.
"How do I believe you?" He asked as he snapped his eyes wide open glaring into mine.
"We are mates. Mates never hurt each other" I whispered and Mate hesitated but nodded and walked towards me. I bent my heard towards his neck and without wasting another minute, bit into his flesh. We both moaned as his blood flew into my mouth and seconds later Mate bit hard into my neck, right on top of Jaxon's mark.
"Mate" she snapped waving her hand but Mate stood his ground. He stepped towards me and wrapped his hands around my waist.
Arua glared at me and then noticed the mating mark and growled loudly. I winced at the sound and pressed closer to Mate who stood in front of me protectively. I started to feel weird in the stomach as Mate's mark bonded me with him. Did that mean my bond with Jaxon was brocken?
"You bitch, you ruined everything" Arua snarled and minutes later Mousata came in and stood next to her. I tried to understand what he was thinking, but as usual he stood there with a blank face.
"I did what I needed to. How could you do this to your own son?" I asked and Mate looked at me confused but didn't move away, I tapped his shoulder reassuring him that Arua is his mother.
"I will explain everything later" I promised and he smiled at me a little. Even though I was in danger of losing my life i couldn't help but feel content as I stood with Mate. All this while he hadn't known what he was doing. It had never been his fault but I couldn't help but feel complete.
I was finally with someone whom I meant to be.
"I did what I needed to. He was worth something at least. The one man I loved abandoned me because he found his mate, later on I met another mate and concieved Mate. Ever wondered why I hated your parents so much. Because it was your father that I was in love with. But then he met your mother and left me. Then one night I slept with a stranger and that is when Mate came into my life. But, I couldn't look after a child, I needed revenge so when you were concieved and Mate turned out to be your mate everything just worked out"
I stood there not being able tp believe what she was saying. How could she have just used Mate in such a way? Her own son. And to think my father was with some time with her.
"You are mad. Absolutly crazy. It wasn't there fault they met. It wasn't there fault that they were mates. They were meant to be. How could you do what my father did to you? Yeah, you didn't make Mate leave me, but you made him tourture me, through yourself. How could you? For once did you ever stop and think that this was your son right here? How could you be so blinded by hatred?" I asked softly and Mate stiffened as he heard what I said.
I knew that he was confused but I couldn't even tell him everything. Not right now. There was just not enough time.
"You are my mother?" Mate asked softly, but I could hear the anger that layered his voice.
"Yes" Arua nodded. Before Mate could say anything, the door was pushed open and a man in dirty clothes stood there.
"Jaxon has arrived. We have spotted his pack. Looks like he is the Alpha" The man spoke up and stood there shocked.
Jaxon was here.
How could I explain Mate and me??
"We should be there soon" Alex, my beta spoke up as we ran across Mates territory. We stopped as we noticed the house, right in the centre of Mates pack house. All this while it had been covered with spells so none of us could have seen it.
Suddenly I felt a ache in my neck and then a snap. I tried to feel Natalie, but I got nothing. I tried to link my mind to hers but I got no reply.
There was only one answer....
I snarled loudly, my wolf going crazy within me. I ran towards the hidden house of spells with one thing on my mind.
