Roman Wagered To The Cold Hearted Alpha King chapitre Chapitre 1

Zoey’s POV

As I made my way towards his room, my heart raced with a mix of anticipation and fear. The tension in my body was palpable, each step feeling heavier than the last. I knew that what I was about to do was risky, but I couldn't deny the truth any longer. I had to tell him—I had to reveal that I was his second chance mate and that I had fallen deeply in love with him.

I knew he had warned me, warned me not to fall in love with him. He had told me that I was just a toy to him and he only wanted me to warm his bed, but I couldn't help it. I couldn't help falling for him.

With a deep breath, I held the doorknob and pushed it open, then stepped in. But what I saw shattered my heart. In the bed was Alpha Ethan, kissing Christabel. As if he noticed my presence, he quickly pulled away from the kiss and left the bed.

"Zoey," he called out to me, but I ran out of the room. "Listen," he called and ran after me, catching up with me.

"How could you, Alpha Ethan? How could you do this to me?" I yelled and saw anger fill his face.

"How dare you, Alpha Ethan? How dare you cheat on me?" I yelled in pain and saw him grunt in anger.

"Cheat on you?" he asked with a bitter scoff. "In case you've forgotten, let me refresh your memory. You are a toy wagered to me by your silly father. Your duty is to warm my bed and give me an heir, which you have failed to do for the past four months." He spat on my face, causing my wolf to whine in pain.

These words weren't new to me. I received them almost all the time from him, but this time it hurt even more. It wasn't just my heart that clenched, but my wolf too.

"Alpha…" I stammered in pain, but he cut me off. "Enough. I don't want to hear it, Zoey. It seems to me that you have forgotten your place, Zoey." He yelled, shattering my heart into pieces. "Just because I have given you a little attention doesn't mean you should forget your place." He spat while holding my gaze with anger and hate.

With a gulp, I opened my mouth to speak. "Apologies, Alpha. I have forgotten my place. I'm just a mere toy to you, wagered to you by my father." I cried and ran away, and he didn't bother coming after me.

With my heart clenching with pain, I ran into the garden and cried out in misery. I was crying and my wolf, Nora, was silent, but I knew she was also in pain.

I thought he was having feelings for me.

I thought he no longer saw me as a sex toy.

But I was wrong. He is the cold-hearted Alpha Ethan and will always be one.

I heard footsteps behind me, and quickly turned to see if it was Alpha Ethan, but it wasn't him. Instead, it was his cousin Liam.

A frown appeared on my face as he squatted before me with a victorious grin on his face.

"I told you that Ethan will never see you beyond a toy," he mocked, while I looked away, ignoring his words.

"Accept my proposal and be with me. I promise to treat you better than him," he spoke, but I scoffed with anger and faced him.

"Really?" I asked with a bitter chuckle. "Wasn't that the same thing you told Anita, Alpha Ethan's first mate?" I asked, and he couldn't give a response.

"You deceived her and lured her into your arms, and now that you are done with her, you are back to get your next prey," I yelled and saw a big frown on his face. "Not me, it can never be me. Instead of falling into your arms, I'd rather die," I declared those words as a vow and saw anger consumed his face.

With an angry grunt, he stood up and held my gaze with anger. "Then I'll make sure you die," he declared those words as a promise and walked away.

Ignoring his threats, I continued sobbing, feeling my heart shattering into pieces. Alpha Ethan's hurtful words kept buzzing in my head, causing pain to envelope my entire being.

“Zoey," Charity, a maid assigned to me by Alpha Ethan, walked up to me with a glass of water. "Please pull yourself together. I have been watching you crying for a long time." She pleaded, handing the glass of water to me, which I instantly took and gulped down. "Stop crying and go to bed. It's already late." She flashed me an uneasy smile, which I couldn't understand, before leaving.

With a heavy sigh, I collapsed on the floor in the garden and continued sobbing. Tears streamed down my cheeks, and no matter how hard I tried to stop them, they kept falling.

In the midst of my pain, I realized my eyes became blurred, my throat became dry, and before I could process what was happening, I fell to the ground and lost consciousness.

I struggled to open my eyes, feeling groggy and weighed down. It took me a moment to register that I was lying on a soft, comfortable bed. As I tried to move, I felt a stronger body holding me down, making it impossible for me to shout out.

The scent of the figure next to me was intoxicating yet so different from Alpha Ethan's, and even with my eyes closed, I knew that this person was a stranger. Summoning all my strength, I forced my eyes open, only to see the ceiling above me.

Straining my neck, I turned my head to see who was lying beside me, and to my horror, it was none other than Liam, Alpha Ethan's cousin. This couldn't be happening. Why was I in his bed?

Before I could speak, the door opened and Alpha Ethan barged into the room, his eyes meeting mine.

"Alpha…"
