Katerina's Secret

1K 36 2

Hello my bloomers. I want to apologize beforehand because this chapter is really short. I know I usually do longer chapters but I liked where this ended and thought it would be a good cliffhanger. Also I want to make a quick shout out to sandyfaith1 who has liked a lot of my chapters and has been nothing but sweet in the comments. And her dog pic is too cute for words, I'm in love with dachshunds! Ok enough with me gushing!

Julia's POV:

"Ok so what is going on?" I ask as I plop myself onto Katerina's bed. Not even a day in and we already have drama. Can't wait for tomorrow.

"Please don't get mad, I had no choice in the matter." Katerina comes and sits next to me and puts her hand in mine.

"I won't, I could never get mad at you. " I reassure her while squeezing her hand. "Ok maybe that's a lie, but I will still love you." I smile back at her which makes her laugh.

She looks down for a moment trying to figure out how to phrase it while I give an idk face towards Leslie, who is trying to hide her laugh. I am so weird in situations like this I either have a complete mental breakdown or I make goofy faces.

"So after you left I turned sixteen and that's when you find your mate. Duh you know that already!" Katerina nervously laughs. "And I was so excited but worried at the same time because of your situation. So before then Leslie and I would go to your house to check if you might have decided to come back or not. And that day, my birthday, Peyton opens the door and bam I'm hit with the most amazing smell in the world. And I knew at that moment Peyton was my mate. At first I wanted to reject him because I couldn't image loving someone who took my best friend away from me. But then Peyton and I made a deal, that stated that I wouldn't mate him until he found you and brought you home." She looks back up at me with pleading eyes.

I'm so shocked right now. Katerina would give up her mate, her love, for four years just to know that I was safe. I take back my statement earlier she is the most amazing best friend anyone could ask for. I start to cry because of how touched I am, but she takes it as if I am heartbroken that her mate is Peyton.

"Please don't cry Jules. I'm so sorry if I could choose another mate I would but we both know I can't." she says wrapping her arms around me.

"No no no. I don't care that your mate is Peyton." I laugh while wiping the tears off my face. "I'm crying because that's the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. That must have been torture. I would have come back sooner just to end your misery."

She looks up at me shocked. "Really? So you're not mad at me?"

"No! Silly goose." I voice as I pull her in for another hug. "You're an amazing person and what you did for me... I don't even know how to repay you."

"That's what you do for your best friends especially the ones you love." She pulls away from the hug to look me straight into the eyes.

"Aren't you forgetting someone?" Leslie says as we realized we sort of forgot she was even there.

"Come over here you cheeky monkey." I say opening my arms to welcome her hug.

Leslie jumps on us which again causes us to fall off the bed onto the floor.

"Ow!" I say as I push them off my body. How do I always end up on the bottom? And that wasn't meant to sound sexually so all you out there. Go clean your mind out with some soap! "Ok so I officially demote Leslie and make Katerina my new BFF." I stand up and talk with an English accent to mimic the queen as if I'm knighting them.

"Haha" Katerina says as she pushes Leslie off of her then comes over to me and gets on one knee.

"You all are so mean to me!" Leslie curls up into a ball pouting like a toddler.

I couldn't even finish the process because we were all laughing so hard at how stupid we were being. It's been four years since we have seen each other, yet were acting like we were when we were four.

After that we all go downstairs to get something for lunch. And Katerina says that she is going to put Peyton in the doghouse, more like wolfhouse, for treating me the way they did. During lunch we all catch up on the last four years of our lives. I tell them that I lived with my grandmother in the city until I got into Columbia for the nursing program. And about the amazing group of friends I had that supported me along the way. I told them that we should all get together and meet up because I knew that we would all become instant friends. I also told them about Daniel.

"Don't you have feelings for Ben still?" Leslie asked.

I looked down before answering." No I actually don't."

"How? Your wolf must be so excited that she is here with him?" Katerina added.

"Well technically I don't have my wolf anymore." I said really fast and quiet so that they couldn't hear me.

"What!" I heard a man's voice. I looked up to see Ben standing in the door way, but as I examined him close I realized it wasn't him. His eyes once a mystic green had changed to midnight black. It was his wolf and he was about to blow.

Can you all forgive me? If so then please comment, vote, and follow. Hey if anyone knows some good wolf books, I'm dying to read some that aren't super popular because I want to give some other books a chance. So please if you know any just tell me in the comments or message me! Pic of Katerina on the side!
