Alpha’s Betted Bride Chapter 19

“Hey, is everything alright?” Cassy asked when she met up with us in the hallway.
Aiden walked straight past her and behind the stairs. His father stepped out from the dining hall and his eyes locked with mine before he followed his son:
“Everything is fine,” I said and smiled.
She didn’t believe me and I probably wouldn’t have either. I had gotten less and less convincing with my lies and it was something that bothered me.
“Do you want to go for a walk?” She asked and smiled a half smile.
“Yeah, why not,”
We walked down the park and toward the town. The movement was getting more and more as everyone started walking to school and work.
“Do you want to share what it is that is bothering you?” She asked and looked ahead.
“What do you mean?”
“The phone call, Aiden, all of it and also the fact that you’re clenching your teeth so hard that I’m surprised they’re not turning to dust,” now that she mentioned it my jaw was hurting from all the clenching.
“The phone call was my mom,”
“Oh, that’s great,” I turned my head and glared.
“I know you listened in on the phone call I had with my brother the other day,” I said and she nodded
her head.
“So, what did she say?”
“That they’re coming to visit, her and my dad and probably my brothers,”
“And how do you feel about that?”
“Like I want to run away, as far as I can without turning back.” I asnwered honestly.
“You’re relationshop isn’t great, huh?”
“Not even a little. My parents are…special. They don’t really love, they love their money and their power unconditionally but their love for me is dependent on wether or not I do as they say. It’s always been.
and if I submitted and acted the sweet little obient girl
like that. If I did something wrong, I’d get !
they wanted me to be, they were extatic,”
“Gabby,” She said and grabbed my arm, pulling me to a stop..
“Do you want to be married to Aiden?”
“Would you be happy if, before you even gained your wolf and found your mate, you were married of to a complete stranger, a man who doesn’t want you and already has someone else? To be a chess piece in a game that you’re not even a part of, all for money and power?”
“I’m….I’m so sorry, I had no idea,” I shrugged my shoulders and continue walking.
“Nobody does, nobody’s supposed to,”
“So nobody knows?”
“Only my family,”
“And now me,”
“I’m assuming, or rather hoping, that you’ll keep it to yourself,” I said and looked her deep in the eyes. If she answered me now and she lied, I’d see it.
“Of course,” she said and she meant it. Thank god.
We walked into town and into a clothing store.
“Ugh, look at this beauty,” Cassy said in awe and dragged her fingers over the black satin.
“Buy it,” I said and looked around at the other dresses and shirts. She rose a brow and tilted her hip
“Not all of us can just pull out our card and buy anything we want,”
“Fine, I’ll buy it for you,” I said and shrugged my shoulders.
“It’s eight-hundred dollars,” she said and let go of the dress.
“So?” I went over to grab the dress but Cassy’s fingers circled around may wrist and stopped me from reaching for it.
“Don’t. I don’t want you to buy me things. I have a job and one day when I save up enough money I’ll come back and buy it. You’re not a bank or a credit card, Gabby, you’re my friend,” she let go of my hand and it fell to my side, Memories flooded my mind and I suddenly realized that this was the first time someone had declined that offer. Never had it happened before that people didn’t let me buy them stuff. In fact they asked for it, often and when I would offer it they would jump on it.
“Alright,” I said and backed away.
Why was that always my initial reaction? To just buy whatever people wanted. In a way, it was all knew, that was how affection looked to me. It was how my parents showed me love, by buying me things.
It was a behavior I needed to work on, I didn’t want to be that person who isn’t able to express emotion in any other way. What if, one day, I have kids and I show them the same type of love that my parents showed me? The thought alone gave me chills and made me nauseated.
“Well well, if it isn’t the princess and her laky,” Sam mused as she walked in with her arms crossed over her chest and her hips swaying in overly dramatic movements.
She barely had any hips so maybe that’s why she felt the need to breather back swaying them left and right. It was like a hypnosis clock.
“Can we help you?” I asked and stepped toward her.
“Yes, you can take your nasty little attitude and skip your way out of this f*cking pack and Aidens life. I think we’d all feel much better about that actually.”
“I wouldn’t,” Cassy said and shrugged a shoulder as she looked between me and the girls.
“Without Gabby here there’d be no one to balance out your psychotic bitchiness,” She said and Sam glared with a fire in her eyes.
“You piece of-”
“Is everything alright in here?” A woman came to us with her hands clapped in front of her. She was wearing a big bedjewled necklace and bright pink lipstick.
“Everyting is great,” I said and smiled.
“It’s a pleasure to have you in my store, I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to meet you, Luna,” oh shit, that really, visibly, stung in Sam’s eyes and she was taken aback. Her hands dropped to her sides and her friends were watching warily as they took a step back.
“It’s nice to meet you too,” I said and reached out my hand.
The woman shook it and smiled, showing of her pearl white teeth. The girls scoffed and some little. whines were heard before they turned around and stormed out of the store.
“I’m Therese-” She said and extended her arms.
“-And this is my store. And don’t you worry about the girls, not that you do, I can sense they might bel the ones who should worry about you,” she said and lowered her head.
“Is that so,” I said and narrowed my eyes.
“I’m a werewolf, as you are, but my mother was a witch, a powerful one at that. I don’t have any magical powers but my intuition is from her and it is strong,”
“That’s interesting, how your parents weren’t the same species,” She slapped with her hand in the air.
mix ha
happens all the time only people don’t talk much about it. Many don’t view werewolves from bloodlines as anything more than Omegas or less. Now, can I help you find anything?” I le around the store.
“No, we’ll just have a look around,”
“Very well, I’ll be in the back if you need me and oh-” she said and rose her head.
“Samantha might not be a threat to you but be wary of your surroundings, I do sense something dark around you, a threat of sorts. Samantha in herself is no danger at all but you never know the lengths a person will go to to get what they want,”
“Aiden,” I said and nodded my head. Her dark eyes lightened up and she smiled once more.
“Look around and see if there’s anything you like,” she said.
Me and Cassy had a little fashion show. We tried on shirts, skrits, shoes, pants and dresses and hats. We were alone in the store so we could goof around as much as we wanted and we didn’t stop until our stomachs started growling. We looked at the clock and saw that it was lunch time.
“You look like a flamingo!” She said when I walked out in the last dress. It was pink and big with ruffles and on my head was a bright pink hat with feathers sticking out in different directions.
We walked up to the cash register and rang the bell.
Therese came out and rang up our things. Cassy bought a shirt and a pair of sun glasses and I had bought a pair of leather pants.
But suddenly she also pulled up a black bag from behind the counter and placed it with our things.
“I’m sorry, what’s that?” I asked.
“Oh, just a little gift from me to you, Cassandra,” she said and gave us the receipt.
Cassy pulled down the zipper and gawked at the black satin fabric.
“I can’t accept this. Did you-”
“I didn’t do anything, I’ve been with you the entire time,” I said and raised my hands.
“It’s from you?” She asked Therese.
“If this dress wasn’t made for you it wouldn’t have been made at all, I see you in it, it is yours,” She said happily.
“I can’t-”

“Just take it, child. I don’t want anyone else to have it, you’re a good person and Gabriella, she really Keep her close,” she said, almsot answering a question that had been bugging me forever.
Is Cassy my friend for real?’
I guess I had my answer now.
The bell over the door rang as it opened and we all turned our heads.
“Alpha, to what do I owe this pleasure?” Therese asked and bowed her head.
“Pleassure to see you again, Therese, I must speak with my wife,” He said, his eyes boring deeply into
He walked over to me. Two large men behind him, warriors, and they stepped inside as well.
“Gabby, I’m sorry but I wasn’t succecful in doing do what you asked,” I drew in a deep breath and held it. When I finally exhaled it felt like fire was coming out and ice filled my veins.
“They’re coming?” I asked him.
