"Why do we have to go to this?" Brooke asked.

Nobody wanted to go. Brooke, Josh, and I were fine with not going, but we wouldn't let Hayley go by herself. Too dangerous.

"Because I said we would," Hayley said. "Besides, he's an Alpha. If we don't go, he'll call every Alpha in the country asking who's missing pack members. We haven't exactly been kicked out of the pack yet."

"Why haven't we?" I asked, confused. Shouldn't we have been kicked out the moment we ran away?

"Because they're not going to kick out the Alpha, Beta, and Gamma's kids," she said. "To all other packs, that's treason. It's almost illegal to kick out the kids of the top three highest ranking werewolves. And my mom wouldn't let my dad kick anybody out of the pack. We need the numbers."

"Oh yeah," I said. I had forgotten Tristan couldn't kick anybody out since he wasn't born into the Alpha bloodline. Hayley's mom was the rightful Alpha, so she was the one who could actually kick somebody out of the pack. Good thing she likes us.

"So why did the guy call you and not Liam, H?" Josh asked.

"I dunno, J," Hayley said. "Maybe because I have Alpha blood in me so he thinks this is a pack and wants to talk about Liam joining his pack since he and Bella are mates."

"Well, we better get ready to go, the car is going to be here soon," I said, not telling them Bella rejected me so I was mateless. "Josh and I can get ready in here and Brooke and Hayley can get ready in Brooke's room."

Josh frowned. "But w-"

"I need to talk to you," I interrupted. I leaned over and whispered very quietly, "It's about Hayley."

"Let's go," Josh said and dragged us into my room.

He closed the door behind us and turned to face me. "Spill. What's going on with you? What's this about Hayley?"

"One question at a time, man," I said jokingly.

Josh gave me a look.

I sighed. "I don't know. Last night Bella rejected me and instead of being sad, my wolf was overjoyed. I kissed Hayley. I don't know why, but my wolf always wants her. Even when I was with Bella, my wolf was craving Hayley. I don't know what's going on with me, man."

Josh looked at me. "Let me guess, your wolf would do anything to be with Hayley and couldn't care less about anybody else?"

"Yeah," I admitted.

"You would give the world to Hayley if you could and want to give her everything she wants because you think she deserves it?" Josh asked.

I nodded. "Yeah."

"You put her before anyone else?"


Josh smiled. "I knew it."

"Knew what?"

"You're in love with Hayley," Josh said.

"What? How do you know?"

"Because that's the exact same way I feel about Brooke. I would do anything for her and she deserves everything to me. You can't stop thinking about Hayley, and I can't stop thinking about Brooke. It's what happens when you're in love. That person is all you think about," Josh explained.

"But Hayley has another mate out there," I said. "If we date and she finds her mate, it's going to destroy me."

"I'm gonna quote a certain snowman when I say this: 'Some people are worth melting for'. If you want to be with Hayley, you'll take your chances to be with her, even if you get hurt in the end. That's what loves is all about."
