MY LITTLE MATE
I patted her cheeks. "Elmira?. Hey, wake up". Maya rushed to us. She knelt beside me and held her sister, crying. "Elmira, please wake up. Please". She turned to face me. "Did you see what you've caused?. You wouldn't admit the fact that you love her". I rolled my eyes. Maya shouldn't even try to start again!!. By now, Lord Raymond was already here and Elmira was yet to open her eyes. He walked closer to us. "Is she hurt?". I nodded. "I am not sure?". He placed his hand on her neck and smiled. "She will be fine. You should take her to the packhouse". I lifted her and rushed her to the car. Maya followed behind. I started the car and drove off. When I got to the packhouse, I took her straight to my room so I could watch over her. Maya was so angry with me she had refused to speak a word. She had also refused to come with me to my room. I dropped her on the bed and covered her with the duvet cover. I sat down beside her, staring at her. I groaned. "Elmira, do you know you're so stupid to have tried to prove yourself out there as my mate". I hissed. "Now, look at what you've done to yourself?". I sighed and stood up to take a shower. I had to keep myself busy while waiting for her to wake up. **. It's been over an hour now, Elmira's eyes are still closed and she wasn't moving a bit. I stood up from the couch and walked closer to her, staring at her cute little face. I sometimes wonder why she's beautiful, and yet she's so weak, timid, and rude. I hissed. She opened her eyes slowly and groaned. She made to sit up but I stopped her. "Hey, don't you even dare move an inch". She stared at me but did not move. I rolled my eyes. "Hungry?". She only kept staring at me like she's seen a ghost. "Hey, stop staring at me like that". She blinked her eyes and sat up forcibly. I hissed. She's so stubborn. "Where is my sister?. Is she hurt?". I rolled my eyes. "She's fine, ok. You should rest". She ignored me and stood up from the bed. I hissed. "You're just too stubborn for my liking". She left without saying anything. I sat down on the couch but stood up immediately. I need to see Maya. **. It's been over a month since the incident at Elmira's school. She's been avoiding me so much. Maya has forgiven me but she spends more time with her sister now, making me feel lonely. I had to spend more time interfering in the affairs of the people. I've been able to bring great progress to them but one thing remains, lots of people keep dying. I inflict punishment at every chance I get. I have also removed most of the council of elders and replaced them with new and hardworking ones
People have been complaining about me but I don't care. They don't seem to understand everything I'm doing is for their good. They went as far as reporting me to my mom. But as usual, she can't tell me what to do!. A meeting was called by the council to tackle the issue at hand. Although they never told me what the issue was, I didn't bother to ask them. They said my presence was important in the meeting. They sent Gary to call me. I was dressed and getting ready when he walked in. He bowed. "My lord, the meeting is about to start". I rolled my eyes. "I'll be right there". "Ok, my lord". "Go to Maya and ask her if she will like to play games with me when I get back". "Ok, my lord". "When you leave, make sure you lock my door". He bowed. "Yes, my lord". I left the room and went to the meeting hall. They stood up when they saw me. I walked to the available seat and made to sit down but Lord Raymond stopped me. "Damien, sit over there" he pointed his hand at the Alpha seat. I rolled my eyes. Is he for real?. "I ain't your Alpha". "That's th e reason w e are here" . I rolled my eyes and sat dow n. "Let your meeting begin. I've got better things to do" . He smiled. "Promise we won't take your time". I tapped the table and surprisingly they sat down. I furrowed my brows. What's that for?. The meeting began and I kept groaning. Nothing drew my attent ion until I heard them say something about wanting me as their Alpha. I rolled my eyes and sat up. "I thought we've had this conversation before?. And I said I'm not interested" . "Damien, it's y our right. The pack wants you" . I rolled my eyes and sto od up. "I think I'm done with this conversation" . I made to walk out but stopped when I saw mom walking in. Everyone stood up to welcome her. "And where the hell are you going?" She asked . I rolled my eyes . "Mom, what are you doing here?" . "To talk some sense into you r empty brain" . "M om !" . "Go back to th at seat and sit your ass down" . I furrowe d my brow s. "Mom?" . "Don't let me repeat myself". I gro aned and went back to sit down. She sat down too. "I need some privacy" . The rest stood up, bowed, and left. "Mo m, what's all this?" . "Shut the hell up". I rolled my eyes. "Why do you prefer to disrespect your father in his grave? Huh?. Tell me!!" . I furrowed my brows. "I'm n ot doing that" . "You are. For rejecting your mate, you've disrespected him. For saying no to being the Alpha of this pack
The pack that was built up by your father. You've not only disrespec ted him. You are making all that he had gathered for so many years, go down the drain!!" . I groaned. "What exactly don't you all und erstand?. That I don't want a weak mate or that I don't want to be tied to some pack" . She slapped me. I was shocked. Mom had never raised her hand to hit me before. "You called your father's hard work some?" She yelled. I rolled my eyes, trying not to f lare up. "Now, listen to me carefully, you are taking over this pack as their Alpha" . "M om ?" . "Not only that. Yo u are taking back E lmira as your mate" . I stood up. I won't take that. "I'm not taking that girl as my mate, never!!" . She hissed. "Are you better than her? Huh?. You're heartless, brutal, cold -hearted. Name it. You're no way better than she is. If I'm to pick betwee n you two. I'd rather pick her. Cause she's way much better than you are!!" . I groaned. "We sh ouldn't be having this conversation" . I turned to leave. "Yo u'd better do what I sa y or you won't like it" . I tur ned. " What?" . She stood up. "You know I don't g ive fake threats!!". She walked o ut on me and I punched the wall. "A hh! !!" . * * . I had no option but to do what mom said. I already agreed to be their Alpha but talking to Elmira about wanting her back as my mate, that's a no-go area. It would have been easy if she hasn't started following that guy. And Maya isn't making things easy for me. She kept blabbing about how Elmira talks about the guy at every chance she gets, what's his name again, Derek. I had to bury myself in work but the constant sing for a Luna was frustrating. Mom wasn't making things easier too. Sometimes I had to run away to save myself. I got tired of their frequent asking and decided to take her back. I sent Gary to get her for me. The door opened and she walked in. My eyes widen when I saw her. She's changed so well since the last time I saw her. Her dressing, her charisma. Everything!!. "You sent for me?" She asked, jolting me out of my thought . I batted my lashes. "Yes. I'll be brief as possible. It is n't like I have a choice, so count it as a rare privilege. I'm taking you back as my mate but on some conditions. "You shouldn't bother ab out your conditions caus e I ain't accepting you" . I furrowed my brows. Maybe I didn't get her well. "You said?" . She hissed. "I Elmira Stone reje cts you, Damien Walker. I was ne ver your mate and won't be now!!" . My eyes switch ed. Did she ju st reject me!!
