Rejected Little Secret by Lisj Chapter 16

Chapter 16

I was snuggled up in my bed, drifting in that blissful state between wakefulness and sleep when I heard a loud bang followed by the sound of footsteps approaching my room. I groaned and buried my face deeper into my pillow, hoping whoever it was would take the hint and leave me alone.

“Maya, wake up!” came Sammy’s voice, loud and insistent. I groaned again, rolling over onto my side and pulling the covers up over my head. “Get off your lazy ass!”

“F*ck off, Sammy,” I mumbled, my voice mutlled by the pillow. “I’m trying to sleep.”

Ad Here

But Samuny was having none of it. She barged into my room, her footsteps heavy on the wooden floor as she made her way over to my bed. I felt her shaking my shoulder, trying to rouse the from my slumber.

“Come on, Maya, you have to wake up, she insisted, her voice filled with annoyance.

I groaned again, rubbing my eyes and sitting up reluctantly.

“What is it, Sammy? Can’t it wait until morning?”

Sammy shook her head vigorously, rolling her eyes. It took me a few more blinks to realize she was holding something. Narrowing my eyes, I realize it’s a sealed manila envelope. “No, Maya, this can’t wait. We just received a letter from the Council, and it’s from our beloved Alpha, or you know your ex?”

I blinked, suddenly wide awake. Zeke? What could he possibly want now? I felt a surge of dread wash over me as I reached out to take the letter from Sammy’s outstretched hand..

“Did you read it?”

Ad Here

I asked, my voice raising slightly as I tore open the envelope. Sammy shook her head, her expression offended. She

scoffed.

“No, I wanted you to be the first to know,” she replied, her eyes darting between me and the letter in my hand. “It’s not really addressed to me now, is it?”

I took a deep breath and unfolded the letter, my heart pounding in my chest as I scanned the words on the page. My eyes widened in disbelief as I read the contents, my mind struggling to process what I was seeing.

I sat on the edge of my bed, the crumpled letter clutched tightly in my trembling hand. The words on seemed to mock me, fueling the anger and frustration bubbling up inside me.

the paper

“What?”

concerned voice broke through my thoughts, but I couldn’t find the words to answer her. All I could do was seethe silently, my mind racing with a whirlwind of emotions

Sammy moved closer, her eyes searching mine for answers,

“Not that I care or anything but, you’re scaring me,” she said with a furrow on her brow, her voice filled with

worry.

I took a deep breath, trying to compose myself, but the anger was still simmering just beneath the surface, threatening to boil over at any moment.

“It’s Zeke alright,” I finally managed to choke out, my voice thick with rage. “That petty bastard.”

Sammy’s eyes widened in surprise, and she reached out to take the letter from me, her fingers trembling slightly as she unfolded it. As she read the words on the page, her eyebrows furrowed in confusion. She cleared her throat and began to read aloud.

until further notice.”

Sammy plopped down on my bed with a nonchalant shrug.

“Huh. Well, I don’t really care that we got banned,” she remarked, her voice casual. “I never did like attending those things anyway.”

I rolled my eyes, feeling a surge of frustration bubbling up inside me.

“It’s not about whether you like it or not, Sammy, I snapped, my tone sharper than I intended. “It’s about the principle of the matter. Zeke can’t just ban us without any explanation.”

Sammy raised an eyebrow, her expression skeptical. “And why do you think he did it?”

I let out an exasperated sigh, running a hand through my hair in frustration.

“It’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?” I replied, my voice tinged with irritation. “He’s just trying to assert his power over us, to

show us who’s boss.

Sammy shook her head, her expression serious.

“Well, I did know he was a bit of a prick, Maya,” she said slowly, her voice thoughtful. “But I always thought he was a bit more loose, honestly this doesn’t sound like the boy you always gushed about. I always thought he’s been pretty chill about stuff like this.

I scoffed, feeling a surge of annoyance coursing through me..

“Well, he’s not so chill anymore, is he?” I retorted, my frustration boiling over. “He’s just trying to flex his muscles and show everyone who’s in charge.”

“I don’t know, Maya,” she repeated, her voice tinged with uncertainty. “There has to be more to it than that.”

I let out an exasperated sigh, feeling a headache starting to form behind my eyes.

“Fine, believe what you want,” I muttered, my voice tinged with frustration. “But I’m telling you, Zeke’s just being a petty jerk.:

“Well, whatever. I’m going out to hunt some breakfast, she declared, her tone resolute. “Are you coming with, or am I hunting just for myself? I’m not going to hunt for you, just so you know.

“Nah, I’ll pass,” I replied with a shake of my head. I lift the letter up in the air, already climbing out of bed. “I’ve got some business to take care of first.”

Sammy raised an eyebrow, her curiosity piqued.

“I’m going to the pack house to demand that Zeke rectify this ban, I declared boldly, my determination shining through. “He can’t just kick us out without a valid reason.”

Sammy’s eyes widened in surprise, her skepticism evident in her expression.

“You’re going to confront Zeke?” she exclaimed incredulously. “Are you sure that’s a good idea?”

I shrugged, trying to maintain an air of confidence despite my growing uncertainty,

“Why not?” I replied nonchalantly. “It’s not like he can ban us for no reason and get away with it.”

Sammy let out a scoff, shaking her head in disbelief.

“You really think he’ll just listen to you and lift the ban?”

Chapter 10

I shrugged again, my resolve faltering slightly under Sammy’s doubt.

“Well, he doesn’t really have a choice, does he?” I countered, trying to sound more confident than I felt. “I’ll just keep pestering him until he caves.”
