Bonus Chapter 2: Getting to Know Her

750 62 2


I couldn't waste any more time, I had to go find her. Maybe it'd be better if someone had already questioned the rogue and we knew where they were, but I'm willing to work with what I have.

I just had to see where she was, I couldn't go too close. She might be my mate, but they were still rogues who attacked my pack without a particular reason.

I waited until I was alone, since now everyone knew and they wanted to do something, but if they knew what I wanted to do, they'd stop me.

I left the house and reached the border. It was getting darker, but there was still light around. I was about to shift into my wolf when I noticed a girl sitting under a tree. She snapped her head up and looked at me. She got up and came closer, staying out of the pack's territory.

She was really pretty with brown hair and blue eyes and she was my mate.

"I'm Eve", she said.

"Alex", I said kind of stunned that she was actually here.

"Ok, so let's get this over with", she said.

"What do you mean?", I asked her confused.

"The rejection."

"What? Wait, you thought I was going to reject you?"

"I'm a rogue, you're not, I attacked you and I probably will again, why would you want to be with me?"

"Because we're mates? And I'm guessing there is an explanation about what happened..."

"Why? I could just be a crazy rogue who wants to wipe you out."

"Are you?"

"No..."

"Ok then we're good", I said and stepped out of our territory closer to her.

"I never expected to have a rogue as a mate...", I said.

"Hey! Don't be a jerk, I never actually expected to have a mate! Of any kind!"

"I didn't mean it that way! Why didn't you expect to have a mate?"

"Aren't we oversharing a little for a first meeting?"

"So there's going to be a second one?"

She looked at me. "You don't want me as a mate", she whispered.

"Why not?"

"Because I'm a rogue! You said it yourself, you didn't expect this to happen."

"Well yeah, I didn't, but that doesn't mean I don't like it or I'm going to reject you! I don't care if you're a rogue!"

She sighed. "Even if I wanted to do this, I can't. My life is... well it's not easy to get away."

"Eve--"

"It's not going to work", she said as she started walking back.

I could see that I wasn't going to change her mind, but I wasn't letting it go that easy.

"I'm going to be back here tomorrow. And the day after that. You're not getting rid of me that easy", I said.

I thought I caught her smile and before she turned around she shouted at me. "Maybe you're not such a jerk after all" and with that she shifted into her wolf and run away.

We are going to make this work.

"So you came...", I said as I saw Eve coming closer. I told her yesterday that I was going to be here and I intended to be, same time everyday.

"I wanted to see if you were really that crazy..."

"Ok, first of all, I'm way crazier than you might think and second why is this crazy?"

"How will your family react if they knew you were here? Or your Alpha? Oh no please tell me you're not the Alpha's son or something?"

"No."

"Good."

"I'm the beta's."

"That's great..."

"Look, I don't know why you became a rogue, but you don't--"

"I didn't become a rogue", she said.

"What do you mean?"

"I wasn't thrown out of my pack or something like that, I was born a rogue. My parents were rogues, not mates or anything like that, they weren't even in love and after I was born they weren't particularly around that much. I've never liked the rogues, but I thought I was going to stay with them forever. I don't know how I ended up having a mate...", she paused, "Wow the mate bond is weird, did I really just tell you all of these? I wasn't planning to, I mean--"

"Eve it's ok", I cut her off.

She sighed. "Look you don't have to say anything, I'll just go", she was about to leave when I caught her arm, feeling sparks from where I was touching her.

"Why can't you leave?", I asked her, "You said you hate them, don't you want to get away? Be part of a pack?"

"Yes! Yes, I want all of these, but I can't! We might not have an Alpha, but somebody runs the rogues, we have a leader. If I just go, he won't take it very well..."

"No one will be able to hurt you if you come with me."

"I want that, believe me I've always wondered what it'd be like to have a mate, get away from them, but I never expected it to happen. I turned eighteen a few months ago, and I thought it was a lost cause, but then here you are. I want to come with you, but I can't. At least not without having the rogues after your pack."

"We can handle a few rogues..."

"Alex you're not the Alpha, you don't get to choose what will happen to the pack and it's not fair... Look I have to go, I've been gone for too long."

"Come back tomorrow", I said.

"I...", she trailed off.

"Just let me try and change your mind."

"You're persistent..."

"You have no idea...", I said and she chuckled.

"Bye", she smiled at me as she was walking away.

"I'll see you tomorrow."

"We'll see...", she shouted.

Maybe it was time I enlisted some help from the others... You know, just in case we had to get ready for another rogue attack. Then again, she was still skeptical about coming with me and I wanted her to be completely sure about this.

I didn't want to put the pack in danger, but I couldn't just leave her alone with them since she seemed to want to get away so much. I have to do something.
