Outcast: The Alpha King’s Beloved by Blue Tears

Chapter 36


Anthony’s POV:. It was time for me to face the truth. I had to admit that Zane was right. All this time, I had been deceiving myself by avoiding my feelings for Jennifer. But after almost losing her several times recently, it was getting harder and harder for me to pretend that I didn’t care about her. This time, when I saw her being publicly humiliated by several she-wolves in the hall, I couldn’t help but step in. Jennifer shouldn’t have to endure all this. She deserved a life that was way better. I knew that she had suffered a lot in the past, and I couldn’t bear to let anyone hurt her anymore. As her mate, I wanted to stay by her side and protect her. Although accepting a mate would affect my long-term plans, and I didn’t want to let Jennifer be my weakness, I couldn’t stop myself from falling in love with her. I didn’t want to suppress my feelings anymore. I wanted to be with her from now on. I wanted her to be my real mate. I would take care of her with my life. After speaking on stage, I took Jennifer’s hand, and led her out of the masquerade ball and towards the garden, where I stopped and turned to her. “Jennifer, I have something to tell you. I held her wrists and looked into her eyes, gathering up all my courage. “I love you. I won’t reject you. I…I want you to be my mate, so that we can live together for the rest of our lives. I kept my eyes fixed on Jennifer, observing her reaction. I didn’t want to miss even the slightest flicker of expression on her face. To be honest, it was the first time I was confessing my love to someone. At this moment, I was as nervous as a restless child, and my words and movements were hopelessly clumsy. What if Jennifer didn’t like me? What if she was going to reject me? After a long while, Jennifer still didn’t say anything. I was so anxious that I held her waist, looked into her clear and bright eyes, and asked gently, “Jennifer, can we become real mates?”. Suddenly, Jennifer burst into laughter. “Jennifer? Why are you laughing?”. I was stunned. Was she laughing at me? Did she think I didn’t deserve to be her mate? “I’m laughing at you. Leaning against my chest, Jennifer stuck out her tongue naughtily. “Mr. Jones, you are so cute. It’s the first time I’ve seen someone confess their love like this. “Is there anything wrong with how I confessed my love?”. I was so embarrassed that my ears turned red. How dare this girl describe me as “cute”?. “There’s nothing w rong. It’s just tha t it’s so formal. Jennifer p oked me on the cheek. “Mr. Jones, you look so seri ous, as if you’re at a mili tary parade

” I fell silent. No one had ever told me how I was supposed to confess my love to the girl I loved. “But I like it,” Jenn ifer added while I wa s lost in my thoughts. “You like it?” A glimmer of hope w armed up my heart. Did she mean that she also liked me? Was she willing to be my mate? . “Yes, I like it. I like th e way you confessed your l ove, and I love you, too. Jennifer stood on tiptoe and gave me a peck on the lips. “Mr. Jones, have you forgotten? We are already mates. We are a match designed by Moon God dess herself. You and I are meant to be together. You’ve saved me so many times. You’ve cha nged my fate, and you’ve given me a new life. In my heart, you’re already irreplaceable. “Re all y?” . I pulled her into my a rms, wishing I could m eld her body with mine. My heart was about to expl ode from joy. “Jennifer, do you really f eel that way?” . I was so immersed in euphoria that I could barely think straight. “How could I joke around when it comes t o the mate bond?” Jennifer grabbed my han ds and interlocked her fingers with mine. “I didn’t expect you to confess your love to me. I ’m flattered. Mr. Jones, I’m willing to be your mat e forever. But I want you to promise me one thing. “Go ahead. ” Holding her soft hands in mine, I felt as if I possessed the whole world. “Please promise me that you won’t ri sk your life for me again,” Jennifer said seriously, staring into my eyes. “I want you to b e fine. “Then you must protect yo urself well. Don’t let any thing bad happen to you. I lowered my head and nuzzled my c heek against hers. “Only when yo u are fine wi ll I be fine. “Mr. Jones, I will try my be st to become stronger and to not cause you any trouble,” . Jennifer promise d firmly. I wholeheartedly be lieved in her determ ination and ability. “You never caused me any t rouble. ” I lifted her chin and kissed her pink lips. “Also, don’t call me Mr. Jones anymore. It sounds too formal

“O ka y. Under the force of my lips, Jennifer had n o strength to resist. She could only let out small attractive gasp s, which drove me wild. Mad anu lam he I bit her lower lip and su cked her soft tongue. Soon, I had a raging erectio n in my pants. When I pulled away from the kis s, Jennifer’s lips were plump a nd moist, as delicate as roses. “Would you like to go on a date with me?” I asked , touching her red cheek. “Let’s go to a place wher e no one will disturb us and have a romantic date. “But I have to attend trai ning every day,” Jennifer said, biting her lower lip. “I’ll tell everyone that it ’s a day off. ” I smiled and rubbed the top of her head. “Hu rra y!” . Jennifer jumped into m y arms happily, lifting her feet into the air. “Thank you, Mr . Jones. I caught her and raised my eyebrows. “What? Why are you still calli ng me Mr. Jones?” . “Thank you, my dear Antho ny, my mate. Jennifer k issed me o n my cheek. “Good g irl, tha t’s it. With one arm still wrapped aroun d her waist, I used my free hand to caress her long hair lovingly. I could not be more sat isfied with the cute and petite girl in my arms. It turned out that thi s was how it felt to b e in love with someone. Having Jennifer with me wa s like having the whole wo rld in the palm of my hand. I felt invin cible. Jenni fer’s POV: . Prince Anthony an d I were mates, f or real this time. I never imagined t hat he would confe ss his love to me. How could I be indifferent to such a confession? Besides, Anthony had risk ed his life to save me so many times. Although my heart was still set on revenge, I could not remain unmoved by such a perfect lycan. Maybe I had fallen in love with him a long time ago, and just di dn’t dare to admit it to myself. But since we both loved each other, why couldn’t we be together? Of course, since Anthony was the prince, we had to keep our relationship a secret. If the truth got out, the conseque nces would be unimaginable. Soon, the day of our first date arrived. Anthony announced a ho liday for all the trai nees to get some rest. He secretly took me on a y acht, and the two of us he aded to his private island. It was an island that he had already b ought earlier, so it was his personal property that no one else could enter. The prince’s private island was not far from Marge Island, but it was said that t he scenery there was even more beautiful. I stood on the deck of the luxury yacht, enjoying th e smell of the sea breeze. I opened my arms, embra cing nature. I was really looking forwar d to the date. I was sure i t would be v ery romantic
