Chapter 1 One

  • CHAPTER ONE
  •  
  • Jordan is my boyfriend, and we have the same birth
  • date. Funny, huh? Tomorrow, we’ll both be meeting our mates, given to us by the
  • moon goddess, and he doesn’t seem thrilled about it.
  • “Nala, I always knew you were not happy with our
  • relationship.”. He says, visibly angry.
  • “What is wrong with you, Jordan?,”, I ask. “Of course,
  • I am not happy to leave you, neither am I excited, but who wouldn’t want to
  • meet his or her mate?. You are being unreasonable.”. I hiss and leave him
  • standing there.
  • I get home that night, sit on my bed and can’t help but
  • wonder what is wrong with Jordan today. I am happy to meet my mate, though. I
  • sleep early, and can’t wait for morning to come. 
  • I wake up the next morning and go about my usual routine.
  • When I am done, I wear a short, flared gown and sandals. I also apply little
  • makeup on my face and let my hair down.
  • I run down the stairs and my mum
  • shouts, “Nala, come here!”. Gosh! I don’t want her to waste my time, as I
  • really need to go find my mate. I get to where she is standing, and she
  • suddenly pulls me into a tight hug.
  • “Happy birthday honey, I love you.”,
  • she says, kissing me on the cheek and handing me a parcel. I smile and kiss her
  • on both cheeks.
  • “I love you too, mum. Thanks.”. I say,
  • simultaneously putting the parcel in my bag and running to school.
  • I only have my mom because my dad left
  • a few years ago. He was human, and when my mom found him, their relationship
  • was just like a human relationship. They dated and my mom fell pregnant with
  • me. She then told him who she really was, and he said he could not live with a
  • monster. So, he left while she was pregnant with me, and my mom is not one of
  • the lucky wolves that get a second chance at finding a mate.
  • On getting to school, I search for Jordan,
  • with the aim of settling our dispute. I suddenly hear my wolf move inside me.
  • “Mate.”, she says, and I grin widely. I look around, and my gaze lands on
  • Jordan. “Oh my ! he is my mate. Could this day be any better?”, I think and
  • move towards him, smiling. I am met with a frown of obvious irritation,
  • creasing his forehead.
  • “Don’t tell me you are still annoyed
  • about yesterday.”, I say.
  • “I, Jordan Right, reject you, Nala
  • Price, as my mate.”. He says bitterly.
  • I wasn’t expecting that. I actually thought
  • he was going to be happy.
  • “What’s wrong with Jordan?”, I can’t
  • stop myself from asking as tears threaten to fall. I feel broken, and cry as I
  • go to my first class.
  • **************************
  • During lunch, I sit with my friends,
  • Dash, Willow, Kieran, and Sheldon at our usual table. They all have already
  • found their mates. Yeah, my friends are older than I am. Willow smiles, looking
  • at me, “have you found your mate yet?”, she asks, and I nod.
  • “Oh my goodness!”, they all exclaim
  • happily.
  • “But he rejected me.”. I chip in, and
  • their smiles fade slowly.
  • “Who is he?” Dash asks, and I don’t
  • answer. I turn to see Jordan with Daisy, the bitch of our pack, beside him, and
  • I immediately feel my wolf block me out.
  • “Jordan.”, Sheldon mutters angrily.
  • “B-b-ut you guys were dating, so why
  • would he reject you?”, Kieran says, and I stand up. It is too much to take in.
  • I run out of the school, to my home, and race to my room.
  • My mum peeps through the slightly open
  • door of my room. “What’s wrong, honey?”, she asks, looking really worried.
  • “Nothing,  mom. I just don’t think I want to go to
  • school anymore”.
  • “Oh…..honey,” she says, entering my
  • room.
  • “Nala, what exactly is the problem?
  • you know you can tell me anything.”, she says, visibly worried.
  • “I met my mate today, Mum.”. I say,
  • smiling.
  • Her face lit with a smile. “Nala, I am
  • so happy. You will be finally happy, unlike me. I………”.
  • “Mum, he rejected me.”, I said,
  • cutting her short, with tears cascading down my cheeks.
  • “Oh.”, she says sadly. Then she hugs
  • me in order to comfort me, and I continue to cry on her shoulders.
