The Alpha was blank at that moment. He was also aware that it's his only opportunity to get on her good side. Think! Think! Nate thought to himself while staring at her. After all, he was always good with making up things and getting away with them.

Her strides were hard to match up as always. She's a runner alright, but why couldn't she walk normally for once? Nate was able to slide beside her, keeping up with every step for a change. It's surreal and progress on his part.
