Damien’s POV

“How was school sweetie?” My mom asked as she cut her steak.

I shrugged. “Same as usual, of course.”

She glanced up at me with teasing eyes. I cocked an eyebrow, questioning what she was up to.

“Have you met Michelle Haley?” She asked.

I stiffened when I heard her name. Images of the beautiful brunette rushed through my mind. I haven’t seen all of her face since her eyes are blocked off from her sunglasses. My wolf was begging me to take them off, but that seemed rude. I inhaled the air, expecting to smell her scent, but remembered she wasn’t here.

“Yes, I met her. She seems like a nice girl.” I replied, staring at my food.

She frowned. “You didn’t see anything odd with her?”

I shook my head. “No, why?”

“There’s just something special about her.”

You got that right. I wanted to say, but my parents would think I was weird.

“I’m going to my room.” I murmured, standing up from the kitchen table. My family stared at me with worry, but I’m used to it. I’ve been used to it since I found out who my mate was a year ago.

I slowly walked up the stairs to my room. The loneliness I felt was so overwhelming that I honestly wanted to die. I never expected the pain to be this bad until it actually happened.

I entered my room and stared at the pictures of my mate that I had framed and either hung them up on the wall and placed the others on my table side and dresser.

Picking up my favorite one, I flopped onto my back on the bed. I stared at her ice blue eyes that were framed by long black eyelashes. I wanted so badly to run my fingers through her soft blonde hair. I’ve never actually seen or felt her in person, but I know that it’s soft. Her full, pink lips looked so kissable and I sighed heavily. What I would do to kiss them…

She was perfect in every single way and I wouldn’t change anything about her.

Princess Victoria Markus…

When I found out she was my other half, it wasn’t exactly like it should be.

I turned eighteen and was watching TV at the time. When a picture and video of Victoria came onto the screen, I couldn’t help but feel shocked. As soon as I saw her eyes, I knew. Those eyes I wished to stare into in person one day.

So ever since, things have been very depressing. I wanted to meet her and tried several times. The guards wouldn’t let me pass, of course. Which is understandable since she is princess.

When that bastard of an alpha hurt my mate, I wanted to kill him. I wanted to hurt him severely and let him suffer until death. How dare he disrespect her and claim that she was his mate?

To make matters worse, what if I’m like that? Not abusive, of course, but obsessive?

It is a little weird to have pictures of someone who you’ve never met before. I can’t help it though. She’s just so beautiful and if it were up to me, I would stare at those pictures of her forever.

I put down the picture and shifted my thoughts to the new girl. She’s most definitely a beauty. When I met her, I couldn’t help but feel the happiness that I felt only for Victoria with her too.

Her scent was magnificent. The most amazing scent I’ve ever smelled. My wolf was threatening to come out every time I saw her. It took everything in me to calm him down.
