And Then There Were Four Novel Chapter 127

Chapter 127: Words of Wisdom

I couldn’t believe Pollux acted the way he did in front of everybody, making me look like a complete fool. Then to call me a whore! Who did he honestly think he was?

Rage bubbled through me as my blood boiled with anger over the entire situation. I wasn’t sure who my brother thought he was, speaking to me the way that he did but thankfully our father James had stepped in to stop the situation.

The moment Pollux grabbed me and forced me to stay to try and listen to him, I felt myself losing control and that was something I didn’t do often.

Walking into my English class, I spotted Melissa sitting in our usual spot, her eyes meeting mine slightly widened as the other students looked at me with curiosity. It wasn’t that I wanted people to fear me, but most people at this school did.

I simply just ignored it, because after I graduated I was out of this fucking place.

Moving towards the back of the classroom, I beelined straight for my seat. Melissa had a grin on her face spread ear to ear, and I could only imagine the questions she would end

up throwing my way. It wasn’t the first time she witnessed one of our dads pulling us off to the side to have a sit down, and I doubted it would be the last.

Plopping down at my desk, I pulled out my notebook and opened it to where we had left off with notes for the exam notes from the day before. Final exams were Friday, and then I would be free from this prison of a school with graduation the following week.

The one thing keeping me sane every single day I woke up was knowing I would be leaving this place soon, and Melissa and I would be starting over somewhere new.

“OK, class, now that our last participant finally decided to arrive, please go ahead and open your notebooks if you haven’t so I can go over everything that you’re going to need to study on for Friday’s exam,” Miss Abel said as she turned towards the board and began to write down various different things we were expected to take notes on.

She was an older woman, with graying brown hair and thick-framed glasses. She had been in the pack for as long as I can remember, and even though she was nice to everyone else, she, for some reason, couldn’t stand me.

“How did it go?” Melissa whispered, causing me to look at her from the corner of my eye. “Was it bad?”

“Just as you would have expected,” I replied with a sigh, trying to keep my tone down low so Miss Abel wouldn’t hear

us having a conversation while she was trying to teach class. That pissed her off more than anything.

Interrupting students with a bad attitude. Also known as me… She hated me.

“Did your dad ground you from the party this weekend? We had plans, Cass.”

Scoffing with laughter, I shook my head in amusement. “It’s my party. Why would they turn around and not let me go to my own birthday party?”

“True,” she said, pointedly letting out a sign of relief. “I’d cry if that happened.”

The gleam of the sun through the open window caught her just right at the moment, making her seem as if she were glowing. There was something about my friend I found ex tremely attractive. From the

soft brown waves of her hair to the dark charcoal colored gray of her eyes. She was beautiful, even though she didn’t think she was.

Melissa wasn’t just beautiful. She was extremely intelligent and though her flat chest, stick figured body gave her a lack of confidence she shouldn’t have, I couldn’t help but admire how increasingly lucky I was to have her by my side.

She had stuck by me through everything, and I was grate ful. However, even though she was only my friend, every now and again, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like to taste those plump pink lips of hers and have her as more than just my friend.

“Are you listening to me?” she whispered, pulling me out of the daze I was in. I hadn’t been listening. I had been think ing of the many things we could do together and in doing so, completely embarrassed myself.

The heat of my embarrassment was upon my cheeks as I pushed a smile on my face and shrugged my shoulders. “Sor ry, I was just thinking about something. What did you say?”

Rolling her eyes, she smiled. “I was asking you if what they said about you and Lucas was true.”

Lucas. I couldn’t help but laugh to myself, thinking about what they said. Yes, it was true. I had been seen going into the woods with him, but as far as having sex with him, absolutely not. He had bet me I couldn’t beat him in a race with my wolf, and of course, I proved him wrong.

After beating his ass in the race, I left him in the dust to wander his way back to the encampment, where I turned around and took his clothes. That way, he would only be able to maneuver back through the party either naked or in his shifted form.

Lucas was incredibly sexy and yeah, sometimes I felt the urge to want to do more with him, but that definitely wasn’t going to happen anytime soon. I wasn’t a virgin, but I also wasn’t looking. Unless you

count on being interested in my best friend.

I had too much to focus to worry about stuff like that.

“No, Melissa, don’t you think I would have told you had I hooked up with Lucas? You know how I feel about that stuff.

I’m focusing on what’s to come. I mean, we have a future we’re going to be entertaining once we get out of this place. I’m not looking to make a mistake.”

The sound of Miss Abel clearing her voice loudly caught my attention, and glancing towards her, I noticed everybody in the class had turned and looked at me. “I’m sorry, ladies. Am I interrupting an important conversation? Because I could have sworn I was teaching you about the final exams, you had this Friday. I’d prefer not to see you again after this year.”

Ouch, that was unnecessary. “My apologies, Miss Abel. I can assure you that Melissa and I will pass your exam because

we don’t really want to see you anymore, either.” My class mates turned into a fit of snickering, causing Miss Abel’s face to go red.

“Then you won’t mind spending the rest of your afternoon

in detention.”

“Unfortunately, as lovely as that sounds, Miss Abel, my fa ther James already has plans for me after school and, there fore, I won’t be able to attend,” I replied, trying to make it seem like there was no way she could keep me, but instead the

fucking woman went to the phone, picked it up and undoubt edly called my father.

After a few moments, she hung up the phone with a smile on her face, as the hatred of her poured into my heart. “Good news. Your father told me to tell you he’ll pick up the medica tion for you so that you can stay here until four o’clock, when detention is over.”

“Shit,” I muttered, with irritation. She had couldn’t be fuck ing serious.

As I turned my gaze back to Melissa, she quickly shut her mouth, shaking her head. There was no way in hell she was going to spend detention with me, even if she was my best friend. She had shit to do, and I knew it.

By the time class was done and I finally made my way from the hell of Miss Abel, I left class with Melissa at my side in search of a vending machine. I was stressed, and a cold soda was just the amount of caffeine I needed to get through my next class.

“I can’t believe that you got detention. Do you just enjoy pissing her off?” Melissa asked while digging through her purse to pull out a piece of gum.

“She’s a cow,” I replied, rolling my eyes. “I could breathe the wrong way, and she would try to turn it into a reason to call my parents and put me into detention.”

next few days.

school.”

As our banter continued back and forth, I didn’t hear the approaching footsteps and laughter of Ashley, and her posse of irritating ass-kissers, but when I turned around, she stood there expectantly as if she had something to say.

“Can I help you?” I said flatly as I opened my soda and pro ceeded to drink from it. I only had ten minutes until my next class, and the last thing I wanted to do was entertain her.

With long blonde hair and makeup plastered onto her face, she was the spitting image of Barbie, simply missing her Malibu beach doll house. She may have been dating my broth er and had been for years, but I knew that was only because she suckered him in.

The girl was a nobody, and then over the summer in sev enth grade, she blossomed or did something because she came back to school in eighth grade with boobs, a tiny waist, and all sorts of other enhancements.

Then her attention was on my brother.

She stared at me for a moment, crossing her arms over her shoulders as she looked at her perfectly manicured nails. “I just wanted to remind you not to be an embarrassment this weekend. It may be your birthday too, but it’s about Lux and I. We will be announced as the New Luna and Alpha of the pack.”

Laughter erupted from my throat as I looked over at Melissa, who was laughing her ass off, too. I had to give it to Ashley, she was pretty damn confident and yet didn’t realize how ridiculous she sounded.

“You do realize that’s not how that works, right? Lux has to go into training for a year without you because you’re not al lowed to go and even if he didn’t have to do that, my parents aren’t stepping down anytime soon. He could be in his thirties before he actually becomes the Alpha and I don’t even know why you think you’re going to be Luna. You’re not even his mate.”

“You don’t know that!” she snapped, stomping her foot on the ground. “I am his!”

Her frustration was entertaining, and as I looked at her friends, I could see how confused they were over what I said. “Y’all didn’t actually believe she was going to be Luna, did you? My brother can barely stand to be around her anymore.”

I couldn’t quite understand why she was delusional enough to think she was going to be the woman he spent his life with.

My brother and I fought like cats and dogs, but I knew my brother well enough to know he would never spend his life with a woman like Ashley. He wanted someone who would support and challenge him at times. Not some idiot who thought herselt a pampered princess.

Gasping with a faint heart expression, she stared at me with wide eyes. “How dare you speak to me like that? You have no right. My position with Lux gives me authority over you-”

“I’m going to stop you right there,” I sighed with a smile as I cut her off mid-speech. “You have no authority over me, and you need to learn that very quickly. If you can’t see how unin terested my brother has been in you lately, that’s your prob lem. I don’t blame him for sleeping with you. Why go search ing for something when you can easily pick up the phone and have it delivered…”

A look of utter shock and disbelief crossed her face as | pushed past her with Melissa. She was as speechless as the girls with her, but as I continued walking, she let out a scream of anger. “You will regret this!”

I didn’t bother to turn around and look at her. Instead, I waved my hand in the air before giving her the middle finger as I kept walking away. “Whatever you have to tell yourself to make yourself feel better, Ashley. Keep up the good work. Maybe being easy will pay off for you someday.”

Melissa grabbed my arm, laughing as we continued walk ing down the hall, leaving Ashley behind us to stew over my words of wisdom. I didn’t care if she cried and complained to anyone or even plotted against me.

170 She wasn’t my problem, and if she pissed me off enough, she would simply meet a side of me that would haunt her dreams for the rest of her life.
