"Henry!!! Happy Birthday!!!" I yelled at him, from the other side of the parking lot.
I ran towards him with my arms stretched out. He chuckled as outstretched his arms. I ran straight into his arms and hugged him.
"How does it feel like to be 18?" I asked him.
"I don't feel any different. But I am excited to find my mate today. "
I smiled at him. Me and Henry have been best friends since we were babies! We practically do everything together and I love him. Not in a romantic way, but friendly. I've never thought of Henry like that. It would make things awkward.
"I'm excited for you too! She will be perfect for you. I just know!" I told him.
He smiled at me, "thanks Kim. When you find your mate, he'll make you the happiest girl alive. If he doesn't, I'll kick his ass."
I punched his arm, "I think I can handle myself Henry. But thanks for the offer." I said chuckling.
He draped his arm around my shoulder, "come on. Lets head to class before we're late."
I nodded and we both headed to Math.
"Come over later and we'll go out to dinner. My treat for the birthday boy." I said smiling up at him.
He looked down at me; yes I'm short compared to him.
"Alright. How does 7 sound?" He asked.
"That's perfect. I'll pick you up at your house at 7 then."
"Where are we going?" He asked.
I smirked, "well we're going to--"
My sentence was cut off by us bumping into someone or should I someone's. I could tell from behind that they were a couple. They were holding hands, but let go once we bumped into them. I close my eyes, ready for the impact.
The guy grabbed me before I could fall and Henry grabbed the girl from falling. I opened my eyes and saw Jared; the schools manwhore.
I looked up into his green eyes getting lost in them. I could feel sparks flying through my body. I glanced at his pink, luscious lips; wanting to kiss them. His arms around my waist, securing me in place.
'Mate!!' My wolf yelled excitedly.
Wait!? No! He's the schools bad boy! I cant! He's a player! And who knows how many girls' he's been with. My wolf growled at the thought. Maybe since I'm his mate, he'll change his ways! I smiled at the thought.
My smile must have snapped Jared out of his trance, because his eyes became hard and he pushed me away. His face full of... disgust? Is he disgusted by me? My smile started to disappear. I turned my head to the right and saw Henry staring at the girl with such love. I was happy for him though.
But you know what sucks. That girl just so happens to be Rachel; the school slut. How fucking cliche is this?I put my hand on his shoulder and I heard a growl come from Jared. I ignored him. Henry came out of his trance and looked at me and then back at Rachel, who also had a look of disgust.
Her and Jared looked at each other and nodded. I didn't understand what was going on.
Jared spoke first, "I, Jared Black, reject you, Kimberly Vaca, as my mate." I felt my heart breaking inside of me.
I fell to my knees, gasping for air. The pain was unbearable.
"I, Rachel Sims, reject you, Henry Cortez, as my mate." Said Rachel.
