Roman The Beast And The Blessed chapitre Chapitre 2

Natalie's P.O.V.

I pushed through the crowd, desperate to get away from everyone. This pack had beaten, bullied, and broken me over the past few years, and my only salvation was upstairs, cheating on me with my sister.

Although, I guess he wasn't cheating anymore, nor was he mine. Now, he was just fucking his mate. I no longer existed to him. Our relationship had just been a way to pass the time until he found someone better…someone who had shifted and wasn't human, so they could stand by him and lead his pack.

A hard shove came from behind me as I raced down the last few steps. My vision was blurred by the tears, and I clutched my chest as I tried to catch my breath. I didn't want the rest of the pack to enjoy my pain more than they already did.

They loved it when I cried and begged them to stop hitting or kicking me. It spurred them on to hear me calling Jake for help. This time, I had no one to call for… no one who cared enough to help me.

The force of the push sent me flying onto the hardwood floor with a shout of pain as my wrist twisted beneath me, my dark brown hair falling over my shoulder.

"Silly Tilly, always being in places she doesn't belong." Savannah hissed as she stepped over my body. I knew I needed to escape, but a large foot came down on my back as I tried to stand, sending my chin to the floor.

I turned my head, panting for air as they pressed more of their weight on my spine. "I've been really sick of you bothering us. If you are not a wolf, you are not a part of this pack. We don't want humans here. It's time for you to get lost, runt."

"That is quite enough!" The Alpha's voice boomed through the house, and I took a deep breath as the weight on my back lifted.

I didn't want to look up at Alpha Dalton. He felt the same as the rest of the pack did. He wanted me away from his son. It wasn't because I was human. He despised me for being weak. According to him, I was nothing more than a distraction to Jake, and he was right.

"Make your way home, Natalie." He ordered as he looked down his nose at me. I didn't need my wolf to feel the alpha command he used, but I did feel the blood dripping from my lip as I scrambled to get to my feet.

As I rushed out the front door, his voice rang out again, and I paused just outside the open door on the front porch. "For the rest of you, their travels have been announced. The Offering will be tomorrow."

Gasps filled the house, and for the briefest moment, my pain was replaced with panic. We knew they would be arriving any day now, but we hadn't expected them to come so soon and with such little notice.

The Lycans.

Terrifying creatures. They ruled the world. Wolves, Fae, witches, and humans were all under their thumb.

They were supposed to arrive days ago. We had begun to assume they would reschedule or cancel, as it had been silent on their end.

I sniffled as quietly as I could, needing to hear what my Alpha was saying, but unable to stop the tears from the pain and betrayal I had experienced tonight. My wrist was cradled to my chest, and my breathing came out in shallow and shaking gasps.

"Don't worry, runt," Savannah said quietly but with malice. The Alpha would have been able to hear her still, but he didn't say anything. "They are coming for the she-wolves, not for disgusting humans. You have nothing to worry about, runt."

I didn't bother to respond. I just wanted to get out of the pack house and forget tonight ever happened. But a small part of me hoped they chose her. I wanted them to take her far away from here, where I would never have to see her again.

"It has been announced that the Lycan king will join his pack this time. I want everyone on the best behavior." The shock of the news was audible as the pack gasped in awe.

The Lycan King hadn't been seen outside the castle walls in years. He was rumored to be a vicious beast, one who fed off the pain and torment of those around him. He killed without warning and took whatever he wanted without consequence. The stories of his ruthlessness were vast, and I knew nothing good would come of him leaving his castle.

When The Offering was made each year before, only the unmated members of his pack showed up to choose from our unmated she-wolves. Never him.
