"Oh dear goddess, what did you do jake?" I ask as i try and hold in a laugh.

"Look there's an explanation!" He says frantically.

I had came into his room to ask him if i could borrow something and i ended up walking in on him with oatmeal on his face, as if it was a face mask.

"I saw this thing on YouTube and i guess its to help get rid of acne, or make your skin smooth....i don't really know" he says sheepishly.

Not being able to hold it in any longer i let out a loud laugh, practically sounding like a hyena.

I quickly took out my phone and took a picture as tears started to fall from how hard i was laughing.

"Hey! Delete that!" He shrieks and lunges at me.

I quickly dash out the bedroom door, completely forgetting why i even went in there in the first place.

As im running into the living room i spot my dad standing there and i quickly dash behind him to use him as a shield from jake.

"Ela what are you doin-"

"ELEANOR IM GONNA MURDER YOU!" Jake yells as he runs into the living room.

"Whats going on?" My dad asks in irritation. I laugh and show him the picture which resulted in him laughing too.

"Excuse me alpha, but you have to see this" he says while laughing.

I freeze.

Did he just say alpha? As in alpha cole?

I turn around and spot my poor excuse of a mate near the front door with amuesment in his eyes.

I reluctantly show him the picture in which he laughs which sounded like music to my ears.

"Eleannoooorrrr, delete that!" Jake whines, making me giggle.

"No way jose" i smirk, I know im an asshole.

"Hey that rhymed" My dad says.

"Why do you even have oatmeal on your face?" My mate chimes in. I clench my jaw in anger, why is this loser even here?

"Hey man a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do" is all jake says before walking out of the room.

Based on his emotions i could feel that he wanted to rip my mate apart, but it's still his alpha so he has to respect him.

"Anyways, richard i came here because tonight is the night when the king passes by every pack in search of someone to claim. It's mandatory that girls of age should go to the party that's being held" he says with a hint of... jealousy?

"Oh of course! Hey ela, imagine if you were the kings chosin one. What an honor that would be" my dad chuckles.

I plaster on a fake smile and nod "who knows, maybe he'll treat me how i should be treated" i say.

Cole tenses up and erases his face of any emotion. Good, he better feel bad.

"Well what are you waiting for? Go get ready. You don't want to look like a bum do you? No you want to look like a queen" my father urges.

I frown "but this is comfortable" i tell him as i look down at my sweats and over sized t-shirt. I don't know if you can tell but im not one to wear dresses or make up.

"Oh my gosh i have a dress for you!" He squeels like a girl. I look at him with amusement, I've never seen this side of him.

"Your mother had a dress she wanted to give you for this special occasion. You two wait here, alpha cole I'll need your opinion on it" my father says and walks out of the room.

I stared and picked at my nails as if it was the most interesting thing in the world until my dad came back in the room.

He had a red dress draped over his arm and held it up a for me and cole to see.

It was actually really beautiful. It was a high slit satin dress, and was strapless with more of a velvet color.

"Wow that's so pretty" i gush.

"I agree" cole responds unhappily. Why is he unhappy? Whatever i don't really care.

"Well go get ready, you have like four hours to get ready. Plenty of time to shower, change, do your make up or whatever is you girls do" he says ushering me out of the room and placing the dress in my hands.


I stare at myself in the mirror assessing my appearance. It was currently 9:55, which meant in five minutes i had to be down at the pack house.

There was really no point in me going if my mate is the alpha of my pack. This is just stupid.

I was wearing the dress my dad forced me to wear and to my surprise it fit me perfectly. I had curled my long blond hair and just left it down because i was too lazy to do anything else to it.

For makeup i only put mascara, curled my eyelashes and put on red lipstick. Nothing too fancy.

With the dress i had on gold heels. I don't really know why i even own them when i neevverrr wear heels.

A soft knock on my bedroom door brought me out of my thoughts. Jake was standing in the doorway with a small smile plastered on his face and he was wearing a tux.

"Hey, you ready?" He asked.

I nod and follow him out of my room and out the front door.

This is gonna be a boring night.
