Goddess’s Design: His Fated Mate Chapter 73

Chapter 73
Willow
In the afternoon, I had set the dining table with all of Wyatt and Lori’s favorite foods. Since we had come to Emerald Bright pack, they had learned to eat food made by omegas, which was a good development in their habits, but they still craved the food made by me. Just as I finished with the salad and juice, both of their voices echoed throughout the pack house. “Mommyyyyy…”
I immediately turned to look at the door, where they both dashed inside the dining room, following my scent. I immediately knelt down and spread my arms to hug both of them tightly.
“Mummy, you’re finally back!” they exclaimed together excitedly, hugging me back.
“Yes, I’m back to my babies,” I smiled, squeezing both of their soft little figures tightly against me to calm my heart after losing them in the restaurant in Miami. Only I knew how scared I was when I was taken and my children were left behind alone. Thankfully, Reuben showed up in time, and they were back in safe hands. They were living and going to kindergarten well in my absence without knowing any mess that was so good to know, “Did you miss mommy?” I kissed both of their foreheads, hardly holding back my emotions.
“Yes, we missed mommy a lot,” Wyatt spread his short arms to show me how much he missed me.
I laughed, rubbing his head. “Mommy, missed you two too,”
“Mommy, where is daddy?” Lori blinked her big watery eyes.
As she asked about Reuben, my eyes slowly went to the stairs. Since Reuben brought me inside the packhouse, he had been in his office with Oran and Bix. He had asked me to stay at home, so I did not know what was happening outside or what happened to Alpha Adam or Ella. However, after what took place outside, the whole pack had turned silent, as if everyone was dead. It was an obvious reaction from others after seeing Reuben’s dark side.
“Daddy is busy upstairs with Uncle Oran and Uncle Bix,” I glanced back at my children and smiled. “He will come to meet you soon. For now, go and wash your hands and change clothes. I have made tasty food for both of you,” I grinned.
They nodded and obediently left for their bedroom upstairs. Later, when they returned to the dining room, they started telling me about their kindergarten
activities while eating, and I sat there listening to them while waiting for Reuben so we could eat together.
“Mummy, how was your vacation?” Lori excitedly asked.
“Vacation?” I blinked.
“Yeah, daddy said he couldn’t join us in Miami, so he was taking you for the vacation. How was it? Did you have fun?” she explained what Reuben had told both of them while dropping them back at the pack that day.
The memories of our running, chasing, and steamy night crossed my mind, causing my ears to turn red. I cleared my throat a little and nodded, “Yeah, it was fun.” My cheeks turned red and hot, and I quickly grabbed a glass of water to calm myself. He was really a good liar and it helped me this time.
After the children finished their food and left to play, I continued waiting for Reuben for lunch. However, even after three hours had passed, he did not come downstairs. Realizing he was busy, I decided not to mind-link him and went to my bedroom to fold my laundry. That’s when I heard impatient footsteps approaching my bedroom, and the next moment, Mia burst into the room.
“Oh my G od. You’re finally back, Willow!” Mia exclaimed, pulling me into a tight, happy hug. “You’re really good at running away and playing with Alpha’s heart!” She teasingly blamed me.
“I’m sorry to worry you again,” I said, pulling away from her a little and giving her an apologetic smile.
“It’s alright, my dear Luna!” She grinned evilly, glancing at the mark on my neck.
My hand instinctively moved to the mark on my neck, and I felt my cheeks heat up as she addressed me with a title that seemed far beyond my reach. “Stop it. Don’t call me that,” I protested.
“Girl! What do you mean, stop?” she exclaimed dramatically, pulling me to sit on the bed with her. “It’s not just me; the whole pack is now calling you Luna!”
“Really?” I gasped.
“Yeah, everyone saw that Ella and the Alpha are no longer engaged. The Alpha has marked you, and he brought you to this pack house. That’s enough for any sane person to understand your position in the Alpha’s heart and in this pack,” she explained.
I bit my lip, feeling a mixture of panic and restlessness swirling in my heart. I never imagined I’d have to face such a situation in my life. My goal was simply to be with Reuben from the start, nothing more. Growing up with a lot of uncertainty, I had learned to be content with small things and not to harbor grand dreams.
“Why do you look so nervous? If it were any other girl, she’d be on cloud nine,” Mia laughed, clearly seeing through my façade.
managed a nervous, barely audible laugh in response. “I just… I’m not ready for this much change, Mia. It’s all happening so suddenly. I mean…” I trailed off, unable to articulate my feelings, but she nodded in understanding.
“I know. You’re not prepared for such big changes, but you were destined for this path from the beginning, Willow,” she said, smiling and squeezing my hand. “When the goddess paired you with the Alpha, she had big things in mind for you.”
Her words carried a simple yet profound meaning, weighing heavily on me. I just gave a slight nod, my mind swirling with too many thoughts and emotions to fully grasp at that moment.
“By the way, it seems the misunderstanding between you and the Alpha has been resolved. What are your plans now?” There was a hint of curiosity in Mia’s
eyes.
“Yes, the misunderstanding has been resolved, but there’s been a six-year gap in our relationship, and the definition of it has changed too. There are a lot of things I need to figure out, and without them, I can’t fully accept this reality. I’d feel like something was missing between Reuben and me. That’s why I’ve decided to take it slowly,” I explained, pouring out what was in my heart.
Mia nodded in understanding even though she could not grasp the full meaning behind my words. In reality, I wanted to figure out the events and truth of these past years that I had missed about Reuben’s life. “Alright. You and the Alpha know best. The third person has nothing to say. And that third person is already gone. Actually, she’s disappeared,” she added, clearly indicating Ella.
“She disappeared?” I gasped. Ella wasn’t someone who would just run away from a situation.
“Well, actually, I wasn’t in the pack when Alpha Adam and Ella’s confrontation took place in the clearing. I was at college, and then I went straight to pick up the kids. But I heard from some pack members that after Alpha left with you to the packhouse, Alpha Adam was taken back to Opal Moon Pack by his Beta. He should be alive, but there are also rumors circulating that Alpha Reuben didn’t burn down
the Opal Moon Pack. However, no one knows where Ella is. She just vanished,” Mia shrugged her shoulders, adding to the mystery surrounding Ella’s disappearance.
Ella actually owned a grand house in the Emerald Bright Pack, so her disappearance was just as strange to me. As for Reuben’s decision not to burn down the Opal Moon Pack, it didn’t surprise me much. No matter how angry he might be, he wouldn’t resort to taking innocent lives or destroying their homes. I believed that later he probably communicated through the mind-link with his wolves to ensure they understood not to harm the pack, after he showed Ella the consequences of her actions.
“Now, don’t dwell on Ella. Focus on yourself. The pack now has their Luna, so get ready to face their excitement,” Mia chuckled.
Something in her words triggered a memory within me, and I looked up at her. “Mia, how come pack members are cool and accepting of me as their Luna when I’m an Omega?”
“So, what if you’re an Omega?” Mia blinked, puzzled for a moment, before something triggered her memory. “Ohh… you haven’t been in the pack for six years, so you’re not familiar with a lot of changes. Actually, since Alpha Reuben took over five years ago, he’s made a lot of changes to the laws, including those related to Omegas. Now, Omegas are equal to every other pack member. They’re not seen as low-ranking like they were six years ago, and they can even be in relationships with higher-ranking wolves. Things are completely different in the Emerald Bright Pack now.”
My eyes widened in disbelief. “How is that possible? Weren’t those rules and laws made by Reuben’s father, Alpha Louis? Even though Reuben took over his position, how could he just remove those rules for Omegas?” I gave Mia a puzzled look, but her expression suddenly changed. She looked away from me and remained silent. She was definitely hiding something from me.
“Mia,” I called her.
“Hm?” She looked up at me.
“Since I’ve returned to the pack, I haven’t seen Alpha Louis around. I’ve only seen Alpha in the mall one day, I was honestly afraid of his reaction when he saw Wyatt, Lori, Reuben, and me together, but Alpha’s response was very strange to me. I understand he passed his position to Reuben, but this is still his home, right? So why doesn’t he live here? And why does no pack member talk about him like he doesn’t exist? I wonder why,” I expressed all the doubts and observations that had been nagging at me.

Mia’s lips parted slightly, and she gave me a guilty look for a moment before biting her lip and shaking her head. “There are a few things that we’re not allowed to talk about, Willow. And AlphLouis is one of those topics. I’m afraid you’ll have to uncover the past on your own her voice was low and filled with fear.
For some reason, when she said it, my heart was unsettled.

Willow “It can’t be my baby!” Reuben tossed the pregnancy report onto the bed where I sat, my eyes wide with shock. “What do you mean?” I stammered, my voice hardly escaping my throat. My heart sank as I watched him deny his own flesh and blood. “I returned from the pack after two months, and now you’re telling me you’re pregnant? Does that even make sense?” Reuben’s growl was filled with frustration. My mind went blank as I stared at my soulmate. I had anticipated his return with excitement, expecting him to embrace me and share in the joy of our first child. I had imagined he would be overjoyed to know that he was going to be a father. However, I never expected Reuben to react with such rage to the news of my pregnancy, indirectly accusing me of infidelity and rejecting his own child. “It’s our baby, Reuben,” my voice shook, “Have you forgotten that you showed up in my room two months ago when you were in a rut? We made love the whole night without protection.” I tried my best to remind him of that night, desperately seeking Reuben’s soft, love-filled eyes, but all I got in return was sternness and growing bitterness. “So you’re using my rut as an excuse?” he growled. “I was in rut, but you were in your senses, right? If I hadn’t used a condom, you could have used the morning-after pill or birth control to prevent this from happening. Or at the very least, you could have told me about our mistake that night.”
