Goddess’s Design: His Fated Mate Chapter 88

Chapter 88

Bix felt the weight of everyone’s surprised stares upon him once the truth about his identity was revealed, but it was Oran’s burning gaze drilling into his face that proved unbearable. Try as he might, avoiding it was no easy feat.

A tense silence enveloped the yard as Willow glanced between them and Reuben, whose eyes remained fixed on his two friends with meaningful intensity. Restlessness hung in the air as she observed the others, including Ella. However, Walter’s chuckle shattered the silence as he addressed Adam, “Trading

babies for your own personal gain, manipulating and using others to shield your own daughter… I’m not surprised by the evilness in her personality,” he remarked, his gaze shifting to Ella. To his surprise, she displayed no animosity toward Walter for the first time, which caught him off guard.

Ella blinked big wet eyelashes, taking a few hesitant steps closer to Walter. “It sounds like a bitter truth,” she acknowledged, placing her hand over his that held the silver dagger against Alpha Adam’s chest. “I have to admit that you were correct when you said that evil can sense evil,” she added, surprising Walter, his arm obediently lowered until they both rested at his side without his knowledge.

“What are you saying, Ella?” Alpha Adam panicked, grasping her hands in his own. “You’re not evil, my dear. I have wronged you with my greed, binding you with a marriage treaty you never wished to sign. You only agreed to make me happy. None of this is your fault. It’s dad who’s responsible for everything…”

“I had only one father, and he died years ago. I had an uncle just a few hours ago, but I’ve lost him too…” Ella slowly withdrew her hand from Adam’s grip, leaving him in stunned shock. “Ella… don’t say such things,” Adam weakly pleaded.

Meanwhile, Walter stood there frozen,.his heart quickening at the sight of Ella’s defeated and broken figure, now oddly silent.

“Yet, I am the one that will have to pay for your sins…” Ella murmured, gathering her luggage.

“What? No! ELLA! DON’T GO!” Adam yelled frantically, but Ella didn’t halt her departure. She did not even look back as her tears continued to flow like a river. There was no way she would stay in Emerald Bright Pack when she could not even face Bix. “DON’T LEAVE! PLEASE, JUST DON’T!!!” He collapsed to his knees, the weight of his loss crushing him. The daughter he had spent his life trying to protect was

were exposed. He

Walter snapped out of his daze as Ella began to leave the yard. What did she mean by paying for Adam’s

sins? Frowning, he recalled the current devastated state of the Opal Moon Pack.

The Opal Moon Pack, once the second strongest after the Emerald Bright Pack, found itself in turmoil

once Reuben severed ties due to Alpha Adam’s attempted murder of Willow. With the collapse their

alliance, other packs that had feigned friendship now revealed their true colors. Bereft of treaties and

protection, the Opal Moon Pack was vulnerable to exploitation. Alphas from powerful packs set their

sights on their land, territory, business, and dwindling wealth.

With Alpha Adam’s left arm rendered useless by Reuben’s assault, he could no longer lead, leaving Ella

to assume the role of Alpha. She now faced the daunting task of navigating all these challenges alone.

Stepping beyond the boundaries of the Emerald Bright territory would expose Ella to ruthless Alphas,

many of whom she had rejected for their unwelcome advances. Now, she stood as an unprotected

target, vulnerable to robbery and violence of the beasts waiting outside for her.

Despite the looming dangers ahead, Ella made the decision to depart the territory, burdened by the

weight of her father’s betrayal and the guilt of unknowingly usurping Bix’s position since birth.

Walter’s hands shook at his sides when her back began to disappear from view. She was walking to her doom. He stepped toward her but stopped with a frown.

“I don’t care what happens to her. Children must pay for their parents‘ actions, she is evil,” he muttered

to himself, climbing into his car to depart from the pack.

However, as he started the engine, his mind conjured images of her being taken by all those Alphas

“beyond the territory. He envisioned her struggles, her tears, and her broken state.

“Fuck!” he furiously punched the steering wheel before speeding away. However, he abruptly stopped the car upon spotting Ella walking alone and lost in the woods with her luggage. Exiting the vehicle, he approached her and grabbed her arm. “Go back,” he demanded.

“Leave me alone,” she murmured, pushing his hand away.

“I said go back!” Walter growled, seizing her arms and pulling her closer to his chest. “There are wild

dogs waiting for you outside. You’ll be eaten,” he warned.

“Why do you care? Isn’t this what you wanted from the beginning?” she asked, her voice barely above a whisper. “You hate me. You wanted to expose me. You wanted to get rid of me. Haven’t you achieved everything you desired?” she questioned.

Walter’s hands trembled slightly at the sight of her tears, revealing her true beauty. The sharp facade she always presented to others had been washed away by tears, revealing a genuine vulnerability that pierced Walter’s heart. “I have yet to obtain everything I desire…” he murmured, locking eyes with her teary gaze. “You haven’t satisfied me yet,” he whispered, his hand gently caressing her cheek.

Ella’s body instantly shivered at his touch, her skin turning cold as she stared at him. “What do you mean?” she questioned, her voice trembling.

He wrapped his arm around her waist, pulling her closer until her chest bumped against his. Ella gasped

in panic. “What are you doing?!” she squeaked, attempting to push him away by placing her hand on his

chest, but her efforts were in vain.

“Do you want me to save you and your pack?” he asked, leaning down closer to her face.

Ella stared at him, surprised by the unexpected offer. The Opal Moon Pack held the last memory of her

parents that she had, one that she couldn’t bear to lose no matter the cost. With the lives of over a

hundred innocent pack members in her hands, she couldn’t afford to let any of them die. “Can you. really help me?” she whispered.

Walter’s lips curled into a smile, though disgust lurked behind it, unnoticed by Ella. “Of course, I can

help, but not for free,” he replied.

The slight hope that had risen in Ella’s heart was instantly crushed. “I have nothing to offer you at this ‘moment. Our business is going bankrupt, and the pack has nearly lost all wealth due to current attacks. But if you promise to help my pack, once I regain control over our business, I will make sure to repay

you…”

“I don’t want your money,” Walter interjected. “I have enough to buy you and your pack a hundred

times over.”

Ella fell silent, sensing the insult behind his words that she reluctantly swallowed. “Then what do you

want?” she asked, only to feel his hand sliding down to her rear.

“I have never fucked a shifter before. Let me taste you,” he offered.

Ella’s face paled instantly. “That’s impossible!” she panicked, struggling to free herself from his grasp.

“Let me go!”

Walter’s expression darkened. “Why are you acting innocent? You are making it seem like I’m trying to

rape you?” he released her in disgust.

“I am not a whore who sleeps around for money!” she snapped.

“Though you’re no longer a princess either, and all too soon you’ll find that you are willing to sell yourself for money too,” Walter retorted.

Ella froze under the weight of the truth in his words. Her eyes welled up again, she could no longer argue. She had known from the beginning that this moment would come, but she hadn’t wanted to accept it. Yet, when he had said those things to her, she could no longer see the flicker of hope that had been lingering around the corner. “You’re the worst,” she whispered, wiping her tears and grabbing her luggage to leave.

Walter stood motionless, watching her pass by. For the first time in his life, he felt deeply disturbed by a woman’s tears, especially when that woman wasn’t human but a despicable she–wolf. A werewolf destined for the fate she was heading toward, so why… why was he so furious over her departure?

Consumed by his own anger and wild thoughts, he charged at Ella. “What are you doing?!” she screamed as he lifted her up and threw her over his shoulder.

“Stay quiet,” he growled, tossing her into the passenger seat. Ella slid back as he suddenly leaned in, gripping her chin tightly. “Before I change my mind and punish you for calling me the worst,” he added, staring into her fearful eyes and full red lips before pulling away and slamming the door shut.

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.”
