Outcast: The Alpha Kings Beloved Chapter 8 by Blue Tears. Jennifer’s POV:. I didn’t change my mind about Prince Anthony just because I had become his secret mate. I didn’t want to let myself depend on him. I just wanted to take advantage of the opportunity he was giving me and try my best to become stronger. I The prince clearly told me that he wanted to maintain our mate bond for the time being, in order to make his mother happy. After this period of time, we would rescind our mate bond, which was just fine by me. After all, I was not interested in finding a mate. His plan sounded perfect to me. For the next three days, I rested in my small shabby room. Since I was selected to enter the training list, no one harassed me anymore. During this time, my wounds almost completely healed. On the day we were supposed to set out, Kevin, Barbara and I gathered in the hall to wait for Prince Anthony. Alpha Norman and Luna Debra were also present. They had come to see off Kevin and Barbara. I looked around the place that had brought me endless suffering and pain with mixed feelings. Of course, more than anything, I was glad I could finally leave this pack. I silently vowed to get back the necklace left to me by my mother. Barbara stood beside me, looking at me viciously as if she was plotting something. Sure enough, as soon as Prince Anthony arrived, she pointed at me and shouted, “Mr. Jones, Jennifer shouldn’t be allowed to attend the training with us. She’s a rotten thief!”. How could she accuse me of stealing when she was the one who had taken the necklace left to me by my mother? I was so angry that my teeth gnashed against each other. I wanted to reach out and tear her hateful face to shreds, but I knew I couldn’t do that. Prince Anthony was a member of the royal family, who attached great importance to acting composed and civilized. If I pounced on Barbara and fought with her like a shrew, I might lose the qualification to attend the special training. Therefore, I suppressed the anger I was feeling and explained calmly, “I’m not a thief. I didn’t steal anything from anyone. “Can you prove it?”. Prince Anthony looked at me expressionlessly. “Barbara didn’t lose anything,”. I answered clearly, word by word. Looking at how calm I was made Barbara flustered. She pointed at me and roared, “You are lying! You stole my necklace! Everyone saw it. You’re a thief!”. “Be quiet!”. Prince Anthony ordered, glancing at her in disgust. “Mr. Jones, I…I…”. Barbara’s face turned deathly pale. It was not until then that she realized how uncouth she had behaved in front of the prince. Her eyes filled with resentment, and as usual, she put all the blame on me. “Jennifer! It’s all your fault!”. I just ignored her and raised my head to look at the prince again. “Mr. Jones, if you don’t believe me, you can send people to look for her necklace with me. But before that, you need to ask Barbara what the necklace she lost looks like. Prince Anthony glanced at Barbara and said coldly, “Tell me. “It’s a white pearl necklace. Barbara’s voice trembled with fear. “You two, go with her,”the prince said, turning to his servants. “Yes, Mr

J ones. The two servants followe d me to Barbara’s room t o look for the necklace. Barbara tried to hurry after us, but she had barely lifted her right foot when th e prince stopped her with a sharp glance. Her face turne d pale and she froze in place. In fact, this w as a great oppo rtunity for me. Not only would I be able to prove my in nocent, but I might also be able to find the necklace that my mother left to me. After entering Barbara’s room, I didn’t search for the pearl n ecklace that she had described. Instead, I went to look around for my necklace. I searched every inch and corner of Barbara’s room , in case there was something I had missed before, but I still couldn’t find what I was looking for. “Is this the pearl necklace Miss Barbara mentioned?” one of the servants asked me, holding up a pearl necklace in his hand. “Y es !” . “Then let’s go . Mr. Jones is w aiting for us. “O ka y. I walked out of the room rel uctantly, with my eyes still desperately searching around. When we walked back into the hall, all heads turne d to me at the same time. One of the prince’s servants passed the p earl necklace to him. Looking at the pearls g limmering under the sunl ight, Barbara stiffened. The hall broke into whispers. “What’s wrong wi th her?” . “She didn’t lose her n ecklace, but framed Jen nifer for stealing it!” . “Miss Barbara always likes to play evil tricks, doesn’t she?” . Many were conde mning Barbara f or her actions. Of course, most of them were those who had bee n bullied by her before. “Now that your necklace has been found, can you return mine to me now?” . I asked, gathering my courage to seiz e this opportunity. All I wanted was to get back the necklace th at my mother left to me. Barbara shot me a sh arp look, as if she wanted to skin me alive. “Your necklace? Who took your necklace? Not me. Did anyone see it? I wouldn’t a ccept it even if you offered it to me! Who cares about a slave’s things? You pr obably lost it, and now you’re putting the blame on me! Well, I won’t let you!” . Barbara’s skewed logic made me wan t to beat her up. Remembering that she hadn’t barged in to my room alone that day, I looked a t the she-wolves standing next to her. Afraid that I would ask them to testify, these werewolves lower ed their heads to avoid my gaze. One of them s tammered, “We saw nothing. “See? They sai d they didn’t see anything!” . Barbara shouted arrogantly, em boldened by the fact that no o ne was testifying against her. “They are all your followers. Of course they would say that they didn’t see y ou take my necklace,”I retorted hotly. But since Barbara refused to admit it, and n o witness would be willing to step forward, I knew that I had no choice but to let it go. “Since there is no evidence, let it go. Jennifer, prepare to set off. Barbara, you made a false accusation, so you’re forb idden to attend the special training,”the prince said firmly. My head jerked a round to see Bar bara’s reaction. Her arrogance disappeare d all of a sudden, and h er face was deathly pale. I was disappointed that I hadn’t gotten back the necklace le ft to me by my mother, but watching Barbara lose her qualifi cation to attend the special training almost made up for it. As for my necklace, I d ecided to find another w ay to get it back later. I couldn’t help but si gh inwardly. “Mr. Jones, please forgive her! Barbara j ust did something stupid in a moment of madness. Please give her another chance!” . Luna Debra couldn’t bear to let her adopted daughter los e such a precious opportunity to attend the special trai ning, so she pleaded with the prince on Barbara’s behalf

Barbara’s eyes lit up with a g limmer of hope. She looked at Luna Debra and Prince A nthony expectantly. “We have known Barbara since she was a child. She has always been obedient and sensible. Jus t now, she probably wasn’t thinking straight. Seeing that the prince didn ’t say anything, Luna Debra continued to plead with him. As for me, I w as starting to feel nervous. I stared at Prince Ant hony, fearing that he would change his mind. I knew that as long as Barbara was around me, I couldn’t be at peace. Everyone’s eyes were fixed on the prince as they waited for him to make the final judgment. The prince j ust looked at me silently. His eyes were so sha rp that they sent a chill down my spine. After a long silence, he slowly said, “Okay. ” I froze and looked at Prince Anthony in disbelief. What was he thinking? It was known that the royal famil y valued moral quality above everything, and it was an i ndisputable fact that Barbara had slandered me just now. So how could she still be allowed to attend the special trainin g? The only explanation I could come up with was that the princ e was pardoning her for the sake of Alpha Norman and Luna Debra. After all, even the royal family had t o uphold diplomacy. I swallowed hard and look ed at Barbara, who secretl y flashed me a smug smile. But before she could glo at too much, Prince Antho ny’s voice sounded again. “But Barbara has to apol ogize to Jennifer in pub lic for slandering her. Barbara’s face changed , as if someone had sl apped her in the face. Her face contorted in fury. Jumping up like a cat whose tail was stamped, she s creamed angrily, “You want me to apologize to this l owly slave? No way! She doesn’t deserve my apology. “You can either apologi ze or not attend the tr aining. It’s up to you,” . Prince An thony sai d coldly. Barbara looked like she was go ing to explode. She clenched her fists and gritted her teeth with pure unwillingness in her eyes. It was obvious that she would rather die than apologize to me. “Barbara, apologize now. The prince is willing to compr omise once, but he won’t compromise a second time. You know how important this training is. You can’t miss it,” . Luna Debra per suaded Barbara in a low voice. Hearing that , Barbara fin ally gave in. Anyone with a level head would know that givin g an apology was nothing compared to being dis qualified from attending the special training. Barbara opened her thin lips and squeezed out a single wor d between her clenched teeth. “S orr y. “What? Your voice is too soft. I can’t hear you,”I said lightly. “Sorry!”Bar bara shoute d this time. “I apol ogize t o you!” . It was the first time that the arrogant Barbara had been forced to bow her head in front of me. A sense of satisfaction swept over my chest, soothing the a nger that I had felt just now. Apologizing to a slave like me i n public was the biggest shame fo r an arrogant woman like Barbara. Although I was a little ticked off that Prince Anthony was sti ll allowing Barbara to attend the training, at least he had he lped me get back at Barbara by ordering her to apologize to me. “Look, I’m just a lowly slave, but you still have to apologi ze to me,”I sneered at Barbara. “At this moment, you don’t seem to be nobler than me, do you ?”Barbara was obviously enraged by these words, but she didn ’t dare to lose her temper with Prince Anthony’s eyes on her. I knew that she wouldn’t let me live a p eaceful life after we went to the traini ng ground together, but I was not afraid. No one could forc e me to yield, not even fate itself
