Lila smiled at her parents, tears of joy and sorrow rolled down her cheeks. Her mother sighed and placed a soft kiss on her daughter's cheek.
"Call us so we know you're safe." She whispered.
Lila nodded, "Of course."
"And be careful at college, you can't trust everyone." Her father warned.
Lila rolled her eyes, "Yes, I know. Relax, I'll be fine. Plus, they're humans, I'm a werewolf."
Her parents chuckled as she got into her car. She waved goodbye before starting the car and driving towards the borders.
Half way there, she slammed on her breaks when Lexus suddenly ran out onto the road, folding his arms over his chest. Lila clenched her jaw, her eyes fixed on his.
Lexus walked over to the driver's side and leaned down, raising an eyebrow at her. Lila flashed him an irritated look before rolling down the window.
"What?" She snapped.
Lexus sighed, "You're leaving."
"Yes, to go to college. I'm done wasting my time as your beta. I know when I'm not wanted."
"Li, come on. I know I've been an ass for the past year, but I'm s-
"One, it's Lila. That nickname belongs to the Lexus that didn't shove me aside. Two, don't even try to apologize. You made me feel like a burden and when your, oh so lovely mate bullied me, you ignored it. We grew up together, Lexus, but clearly that doesn't mean anything." She snarled.
"Lila, please, I don't want you leaving like this."
Lila sighed, "I don't hate you, I'm disappointed. I understand she's your mate and all, but I miss my best friend."
A sad smile made its way onto his face, "Can I have a hug?"
"Fine. I guess that's alright." She sighed dramatically.
Lexus immediately pulled her into a hug the second she exited her car. She hugged him back, enjoying his arms around her.
She froze when he suddenly kissed her on the cheek.
"I love you." He whispered in her ear before backing away.
She furrowed her eyebrows, "As a sister or friend?"
He only shook his head before shifting and running off. Leaving a bewildered Lila behind.
"Stay safe and I'm sorry." He mind-linked her.
Lila got into her car, slowly closing the door. She sat there for a few minutes, staring out the window. She eventually shook her head and drove away from her childhood.
Lexus threw on some shorts as he returned to his house. He hesitated at the door, releasing a breath. Before he could open it, his mate swung it open.
She glared at him, "You love her?"
His eyes widened, "What?"
"I was there, Lexus." She snarled.
She smirked at him with a glint in her eyes, Lexus gulped as she suddenly pulled him into the house.
A/N: I know, this is all confusing. But you'll learn more throughout the story.
Yes, there will be abuse but....this time, it's not the man abusing the woman.
