Alpha’s Betted Bride Chapter 15

CHAPTER 15
We went to the pingpong table and each picked up a racket.
“You serve,” she said and tossed the boll over.
1 hit it and it flew into a wall.
I pouted my lips and narrowed my eyes.
“Just for the record, I’ve never played before,” I said.
“You don’t say,” Cassy said and rose her brows as she went to get the ball.
We started of slowly so I would get a hang of how it worked. Then we started for real and betted on
lunch tomorrow.
“I’m so sorry!” I squealed and covered my mouth with my hands when I accidentally smashed the ball in Casandras face.
“Don’t worry about it,” she said and wrinkled her nose. I groaned and placed the racket down.
“No, come on keep playing,” she whined. To my luck, my phone started buzzing.
“Gotta take this,” I said and raised it, showing her the caller id.
“Hi!” I said loudly and walked over to the couch, I sat down on the end and started biting my nail as my smile grew bigger.
“How is everything, sis?” Edmund asked on the other line. The sound of his voice was causing a tornado of emotions to start circling inside of me. I swallowed a sob and tried composing myself before I spoke. I didn’t want Cassy, or anyone else, to hear me upset.
“It’s good,” the silence weighed heavily over both of us. I heard an exhale and a low growl.
“You’re lying, Gabby.” He said heavily.
“No, no everything is good. I’m playing pingpong,” said and tired to lighten the mood. He knew that I was changing the subject, he could read me better than anyone else whether I was speaking or not.
“You suck at those games, don’t they have supplies so you can do your painting things? If not i’ll send stuff over, I can have it to you by tomorrow,” I shut my eyes close and shook my head. I pressed my
my nails into my palm and opened my eyes, looking at the lamp. The tears were burning behind my eyes and the lump in my throat grew bigger as I bit down on my tongue.
“No-” I cleared my throat.

CHAPTER 15
“- thank you but it’s fine. Aidens mom has a whole art room with every paint and tool I could dream of,” I said quietly.
I cleared my throat again and pressed on my eyes with my fingers, begging for my emotions to just
stop.
“How are you? And the others,” I asked with a stronger voice..
“What do you want me to say?” He asked me, his voice was low and dark.
“The truth,”
“What if the truth isn’t any good?” I took a deep breath and smiled a half smile.
“It never is,” I said.
“Mom and dad are fine, going about their lives as if nothing happened. Me and the guys haven’t spoken to them since your wedding. Nick and Noah are pissed, so am I. Nick is putting his anger into fighting and nearly killed a guy yesterday. Noah is sleeping his way through the pack and I’m just,” Edmund
stopped.
“I’m just wondering what the fck happened,” he said and let out an exaggerated breath. “I wanna see you,” he said. One tear fell but I wiped it away just as quick. The others were piling up and I didn’t know how much longer I could hold them down. “Me too, come visit,” I said. Edmund grew silent again. This time the silence felt suffocating, I wanted to see him, hug him and be with them again. My heart was clenching in my chest and for each passing second that he didn’t speak, it felt like a piece of my heart broke. “Edmund?” “We’re not allowed to.” He growled. “But don’t worry, Gabby. We’re trying to figure something out.” We hung up and I took a deep shaky breath as I clenched my fingers around my phone. I looked up and saw Cassy sitting on the edge of the table. Her eyes were on the floor but I knew she had heard the conversation, or at least part of it. She raised her head and looked at me, a dead serious look on her face. “Teach me to paint.” She said and raised her head “You don’t have too-” O r 2/5 11:32 Tue, Ma CHAPTER 15 “I want to.” She said, cutting me of mid sentence. “You heard that, didn’t you?” I asked and looked at her too see the truth incase she wouldn’t speak it. “I did, some of it, we don’t have to talk about it,” she said and smiled. We walked to the room of my dreams and the second I stepped foot inside it was like my soul was at peace. “Holy shit,” she gasped and looked at everything that was around us. 1 “Did you say this was Marie’s room?” She asked and I nodded my head. I picked out all of the things we needed and put up two empty canvases on the stands. “Here you go,” I handed her a tray and placed brushed on a little table next to her. The smile on Cassy’s face as she painted was surreal. She looked content, like how I felt when I painted. Nobody had any expectations of you and you could just stroke the brush across the white canvas and create beauty. Your beauty, nobody else’s. “How’s this?” She asked me after we had painted for about an hour. I stepped around and looked at her vase with flowers sticking out in different colors. me. “It’s great,” I said in glee. “Really?” She said happily and stepped around tog look at mine. Her eyes flew up and she glared at “My painting is shit,” she said and sighed. I couldn’t help but too laugh. “No it’s not, it’s beautiful. Keep in mind that I’ve painted since I was five,” I said and titled my head to the side. Cassy looked at her phone. “It’s six o’clock,” she said and I nodded my head. “Do you need to get home?” I honestly hoped she would say no which surprised me, I normally didn’t like being with people. Especially not the ones that were getting closer by the minute. “No, I’m staying for dinner, remember?” She said and grinned. We went back to the game room and picked up the pool cues. It felt nice having a friend, I just had to get to know her more and see that could trust her. “Do you wanna do something tonight?” She asked and bit down on her tongue, a little devish grin are on her face and her eyes hooded. ||| 3/5 11:32 Tue, May 21 GNO CHAPTER 15. “What do you have in mind?” “There’s a club in the neighboring town, there’s music, booze and a lot or “You wanna go to a party?” I asked. “Not so much a party as a club. It’s mostly frequented by humans, sometimes werewolves from our o say. pack or another will go there,” I looked at her warily but couldn’t bring myself to say what I wanted to “It’s safe, Gabby,” “I’ve never been to a club or even had a sip of alcohol,” I said. Cassy made an O’shape with her mo and nodded her head. “I understand, we don’t have to go if you want to. just figured it might be time for you to do something of your own choosing. Besides, werewolves don’t get drunk. Or well we do but it takes a lot so it rarely ever happens,” she shrugged a shoulder and started rubbing the cue tip with some chalk. “It could be fun,” I thought about it for a while and honestly, if I was going to be stuck here, I might as well do something for myself.. “I’m in,” i said and looked at her. Cassy’s eyes widened. “I did not think you would say yes. This is great!” Her arms flung up and a big smile plastered on her face, showing of her white teeth. “After dinner we’ll get ready and then head out,” “And you can borrow a dress from me,” i said and smiled from ear to ear. I had always wanted a friend. to do these things with. I imagined having a girlfriend, getting ready and cute together and then heading out shopping or partying. Cassy winced. “I don’t know, your taste is pretty expensive, what if I spill something on the dress?” She asked and looked a little worried. “We throw it out and buy another one. It’s my parents money, I don’t care if they go bankrupt,” I said. honestly and set up the balls. I could feel her eyes on me, looking with pity or maybe even some judgment but if I wanted to trust her, I too had to be honest. I I slowly lifted my head and locked eyes with her, I straightened my back and waited for a comment. I “I break,” she said and grinned. My shoulders slumped in relief and I stepped to the side. We had played a full game and Cassy was down to the last ball. She set up the cue and it went in right away. 4/5 11:32 Tue, May 21 G CHAPTER 15 “You don’t really play games, do you,” she said and pushed her hip out. “Don’t get cocky,” I said and smirked. 50% “But no, I don’t. My parents said that games such as these were for boys. Girls should paint and play the piano, dance, you know crap like that,” I said and scoffed. “Your relationship with your parents, it’s a little edgy isn’t it?” She asked and I heard in her voice how careful s she was trying to be. It was a sensitive subject and one that not many knew of. “My parents care a lot about image and keeping things pretty and perfect. Whereas I wanted to have fun, go on adventures and live, they wanted me to stay a good, obidient, little girl.” I said honestly. “What about your brothers?” “My oldest brother is the future Alpha of the pack so it was pretty strict for him to maintain a good image. The other two are loose cannons who create problems wherever they go, but I love them all to death,” I said and laughed. “Do you miss them?” Her eyes cast down on the pool cue that she was placing away. “Every dan day,” I said and placed the pool cue in its holder.
An Omega came and told us that dinner was ready so we went into the dining room and sat down. It was only us and Marie which felt nice.
“How was the tour?” She asked with a bright smile.
“It was good, I learned a lot,” I said and left out how I also got a one-on-one briefing of the pack members.
“I’m glad. Do you girls have any plans for tonight?” stiffed and thought about what she would think of me going to a party. My parents would never allow it and now I was married to the Alpha.
“We were thinking of maybe heading into the neighboring town and going to a club,” I said cautiously and watched her to see her reaction. Marie’s smile grew twice the size.
“That sounds like a great idea,” she said and smiled softly and a little proudly. I looked at Cassy with a shock ridden look and she smiled from ear to ear. I guess we were going clubbing tonight.
