Jordan and I had been sitting by a pond eating some food we'd caught, when a group of wolves approached us. Two of them were a earth brown color with black flecks and one stood behind them with a light grey fur that darkened toward the rump.
Hello, my lady. Jordan. said one of the brown wolves. I nodded at them. This had been happening all day. No one seemed to understand that I just wanted to spend the day with Jordan.
Jordan stiffened beside me as the grey wolf stepped forward.
Hey, Amy. A familiar voice said. But it can't be, can it?
She was a wolf?! She left my brother and friends thinking she was dead because she changed?! And Jordan knew, but didn't tell me! I growled in frustration and anger and stomped off into the trees. Both of them ran after me.
I didn't stop until I was in a small clearing. Victoria and Jordan burst through the trees a few seconds later, paws caked with mud.
Are you going to let me explain? Victoria asked.
I don't want to hear it.
Well, to bad. I didn't go back after I changed because I jumped off a cliff.
That surprised me. Why did you do that?
I was scared. I thought Alpha Tom was trying to kill me, not help me. I needed time to heal.
Why didn't you go back after? Do you know the pain you've caused?
Yeah. I know, but they'll move on. They'll be happy again. Even Max. We sat in silence for a moment.
Do you not love him?
I thought I did. Then I found my mate, Scott.
She was Cedar boy's mate? Yeah. He's really sweet.
He is! You just don't know him! I ignored her.
Leave. I commanded when she moved closer.
Leave! Now! I used my alpha tone on her. Victoria cowered and slunk away.
You didn't have to do that. Jordan said.
I can't believe you didn't tell me.
I thought you'd had enough bullshit for one day.
I sighed and he sat beside me.
Have you found your mate yet? I said, changing the subject.
No. Not yet.
We were interrupted by Tom emerging from the branches of a nearby bush.
Can I speak with you for a moment? Tom asked me.
I'll wait here. Jordan said. I nodded at him.
Tom and I walked through the trees.
My dad wanted me to tell you that your alpha training starts tomorrow.
Your an alpha by blood, but you still have to learn the ropes, Amy.
I know that, but I have school tomorrow. How does that work?
I'm sure you'll figure it out.
With that he left. Great.
