Goddess’s Design: His Fated Mate Chapter 76

Chapter 76
Willow
Guests were a rare sight in the Emerald Bright Pack, especially those from other first-ranking packs that had the fortune to meet with Reuben. However, I never make an appearance in our pack. Well, considering
expected the King’s Beta ould have been expected.
Reuben’s royal bloodline,it
Preparing refreshments, I walked into the backyard with a tray, debating on whether or not to send an Omega to serve the King’s Beta would seem rude.
As soon as I stepped into the backyard, my eyes landed on the handsome middle- aged wolf with a strong aura, Beta Jin. He and Reuben were standing an arm’s length away from each other, engaged in what looked to be a serious conversation.
“Please, you have to come to the palace with me, Alpha Reuben,” Beta Jin requested. As soon as I heard that, I stopped in my tracks. My hand tightened around the tray at the mention of the palace. Why did Reuben have to go there? It disturbed me so much that I failed to notice Beta Jin’s eyes were already on me.
He looked me up and down with emotionless eyes. Reuben turned to look at me, blocking Beta Jin’s view from my line of sight when he walked over to me. “Reuben, is there a problem?” I asked.
“It’s nothing,” Reuben shook his head, dismissing any concerns.
“Then why do you have to go to the palace?” My heart grew restless.
“It’s just that the Alpha King wants to meet with me,” he remarked casually, but my heart drummed in my chest more wildly.
“Why does the King want to meet with you? Is it because of the marriage contract with Ella? Or because of me?” I didn’t know much, but I was sure that breaking the contract with Ella, which had been under the watchful eyes of the royals, was a huge scandal. While I was a woman whose death decree had been dispatched six years ago, who had given birth to the children of an Alpha with royal blood. I was still alive and a criminal in the eyes of the royals. “Do they want to kill me?” I asked quietly, looking into Reuben’s eyes.
Reuben’s expression faltered as he stepped closer to me. “No one can touch you, Willow,” his voice was low, but the obsession in his tone and eyes went beyond anything I could have ever imagined. “Whether it was a storm or blustering wind it has to pass me first before it even has a chance of touching your hair. Do you

understand me?” he tucked a strand of hair behind my ear, gazing deeply into my eyes. I nodded in response. “I will be back,” he kissed my forehead.
I looked up at him with a smile, “Come back soon.”
He nodded and left with Beta Jin, leaving Oran and Bix to look after the pack. I kept staring in the direction he had gone, feeling sad. I didn’t want him to leave.
“He will be back,” Oran stated, pulling me out of my thoughts. I blinked up at him and nodded. “Those look delicious. Mind if I have some?” He eyed the cookies on the tray.
“You can have them all,” I smiled, passing him the plate of cookies.
“Wow, these are as delicious as they used to be six years ago, Willow,” Oran grinned, quickly eating all of them one after another.
I giggled, “Thank you, I have two jars at home, I will send you one of them over for you if you’d like.”
“Really? Now are you sure I can’t talk you into letting me steal the kids’ share too,’ he teased with a laugh.
“Sure,” we both laughed together.
“If they’re that delicious, how about you eat the plate too,” Bix’s voice our happy conversation.
interrupted
Oran froze mid-bite and glanced at Bix’s unpleasant expression for a couple of seconds, only to awkwardly put the cookies back on the tray. I blinked at him, giving up on eating the cookies. What was going on? I looked between them with confused eyes. Why was Bix unhappy? Was it because Oran ate the cookies? Could it be that he wanted some too and was annoyed that Oran had eaten them all?
Clearing my throat, I picked up a cup of coffee to offer Bix. “Would coffee?”
you
like some
He looked at the coffee then back to Oran. “Give it to him, he seems to be very hungry,” he said before walking away with a frown, completely puzzling me.
“Did I do something to annoy him?” I murmured but I had a feeling that he actually was not pis sed off at me but Oran. Not that I could understand the why of it?
Oran rubbed his cheek. “Don’t pay attention to him,” he advised.
Chapter 76
I nodded, wanting to put the cup back on the tray, but I stumbled while turning around, and the hot coffee was about to burn my hand. The cup slipped from my grasp, I braced myself for the pain of the burn. However, neither the cup nor the coffee fell from my hand. Instead, they remained suspended in mid-air, surprising
me.
How was this possible?
That’s when I turned my attention to find Bix’s hand that was shining. My eyes widened to see him using magic! He had stopped the coffee from burning my hand at the exact right moment.
“Are you a hybrid?” I gasped. How had I never known about this? Yet seeing Oran’s expression was enough to confirm that I was the only one that did not know about it. Reuben likely knew about it too.
Bix took a step back, clearly surprised that he had accidentally exposed his powers. However, that was the moment that his nose started to bleed.
“Your…” I gasped but before I could say anything a wind passed by me that was none other than Oran. He had already dashed closer to Bix at lightning speed and pressed a handkerchief to Bix’s nose.

“Calm down,” Oran whispered as Bix’s surprised eyes locked on Oran’s sudden move. Oran’s smiling face that had been put on display in front of me had completely changed at the sight of Bix bleeding. In reality he looked exactly the same as Reuben at that point.
Bix looked at me watching the two of them closel
and pulled away from Oran. “I can do it.” With that he left with the piece of cloth pressed over his nose, but Oran still followed him.
I watched as both of their backs vanished while my thoughts whirled. What was this tension between the two of them? It turned out that Bix was half werewolf and
half wizard!
Later that day, after I had finished working on my designs, I got ready to leave for the Wade Moon Pack before going to the restaurant to meet Walter.
As soon as I parked my car in front of the packhouse and got out, Sky-showed up out of nowhere and hugged me happily. “Willow!”
I giggled, “Were you hiding somewhere and waiting for me?”
“Of course! After I received your message that you were coming to visit, I couldn’t

stay calm!” he exclaimed, he started chatting about my escape, return, and my issues with Reuben as we entered the packhouse together.
After understanding everything I explained, Sky commented, “I still don’t like him seeing he came awfully close to killing me the other day, but as long as he loves you I’m fine with it,” he dryly remarked. I chuckled, shaking my
head.
“Where is the Alpha?” I asked, noticing Sky’s expression immediately change. “Is something wrong? Did you two have another argument?” I raised my brows in
concern.
“Actually, I feel like Dad…” Sky began, but before he could finish his sentence, Alpha Benjamin’s voice called out from the dining room. “Willow, come here, girl.”
“Let’s go,” Sky led me inside, and he didn’t finish his words anymore.
Upon entering, Alpha Benjamin and Beta Ken warmly welcomed and hugged me. As expected, the Alpha had no intention of letting me go without having lunch with him. Despite the tensions of the past few days, the conversation was lively, and the dining room was filled with a cheerful atmosphere.
“Willow, why is it that you have suddenly come to visit this old man? There has to be a reason, right?” The Alpha knowingly raised an eyebrow.
“You are right,” I smiled sheepishly. “Actually, I remembered something from the “Actually, I remembered something from the past, Alpha,” I confessed, only to be startled by Alpha Benjamin suddenly dropping a spoon on a plate.
I looked at his wide eyes as he slowly looked at me. “What did
you remember?”
“Actually, I only remembered a little bit where Dad and you were playing chess. Mom came in with refreshments and I accidentally knocked the glass of water onto the chessboard that you two were playing,” I explained.
Alpha’s eyes color changed and his eyes widened, “Do you remember anything more?” his voice was low.
I shook my head. “Honestly, it’s the first time I remember something from the past, and it also helped me recall what my mom and dad looked like,” my voice held excitement at finally recalling my parents’ appearance. Though I did not see the same excitement in the Alpha’s face. “Is there something wrong, Alpha?”
“No…” he shook his head and managed to smile, “It’s just I am shocked that after forgetting nearly everything you suddenly recalled something…”

Chapter 76
“I am shocked too,” my heart beated wildly in my chest, “Seeing you there in memory was really unexpected, Alpha. You seemed really close friends with my dad!”
Sky and Beta Ken watched the both of us in silence. Alpha Benjamin’s lips also curled lightly. “Yes, your dad George and I were best friends.
“Alpha, can you tell me more about my parents? Maybe it will help me remember some more things!” Over the past few years, whenever I met with the Alpha, I always asked him different things about my parents.
He was silent for a couple of seconds then continued eating while replying, “Like I told you, your parents were a very peace-loving couple. There is not much to tell. During the daytime, George would be driving and doing small tasks for me, but at night we were drinking partners and played chess. The day I tasted the delicious food made by your mom, Eloise, I immediately hired her as a full-time cook in the packhouse. She was a kind and beautiful woman, just like you,” he smiled at me.

It was the story time that warmed my heart again, hearing
and peaceful life. Only now I doubted that it would help Everyone returned to eating and chatted about other stuff like the pack’s security, the mysterious attacks that were still a threat to the pack, but Sky seemed to be lost in thought.
Even though I wished to stay longer, I had to take my leave because I had to meet Walter at the restaurant. As soon as I left the Wade Moon territory, I received a call from Wyatt and Lori’s kindergarten teacher.
It was not unusual for me to get calls from their kindergarten teachers. Usually, they wished to complain about my children’s naughtiness. However, that was past. This was the first time I received a call from this kindergarten teacher which surprised me. I had thought that Wyatt and Lori were fitting in perfectly at this kindergarten, so I was puzzled as to why the teacher was calling me.
I immediately put the phone on speaker while driving, but before I could say hello, the nervous voice of the female teacher came from the other end of the line.
“Am I talking to Miss Willow?”
“Yes, it’s me.”
“I…I am really sorry, but today we brought the children on a field trip, and Wyatt and Lori have disappeared!”

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.”
