"I choose her"

I repeated the statement in my head a couple times as Alpha Logan gently took my hand and led me up to the stage.

My heart raced at the thought of myself with a male. Correction: An Alpha that I had never met before.

"Alpha Logan has chosen his mate! The Bloodbond will be completed in two days" Alpha Lochalan declared in complete excitement.

The bright lights from the crowd blinded me and I stared into the crowd, hoping to find my mother's eyes.

Failing to find her, I turned to my side to see Alpha Cyrus and Sierra.

My wolf ran around restlessly at the sight and it was beginning to annoy me.

Given, any girl would be lucky to be the future mate of an Alpha, but I dreaded it.

Sierra smiled with glee and she grabbed his hand and led him up the stage, eagerly.

It was like something inside me didn't want them together.

I felt a gentle squeeze on my hand and I looked up to find Alpha Logan giving me a reassuring smile. I returned it awkwardly and turned away to face Alpha Lochlan who had just announced Sierra and Alpha Cyrus.

Every wolf of status then came up to congratulate us. I put on the best fake smile I could muster in return.

Our Luna, Jasmine, approached us first pulling me into a tight hug.

"Congratulations!" She beamed then moved to the next couple.

I looked over at the other Mated pairs. They were the lucky ones. They weren't chosen or promised to an Alpha. They were free to choose anyone they pleased, with consent.

Consent that I hadn't given.

My father soon appeared, with my mother on his arm.

"Bless the Moon Goddess for this union." My father announced proudly, shaking Alpha Logan's hand firmly. My mother didn't share the same excitement. She stared at Alpha Logan with cautiousness. She met my eyes and smiled apologetically.

"I promise to cherish and treat your daughter well" Alpha Logan said seriously and my father returned with a stiff bit welcoming nod.

"You better." My mother whispered, ignoring Alpha Logan and pulling me into a hug.

"You're going to be okay. Remember I'm here for you, always." She whispered in my ear and the tears from my eyes fell.

"You're going to be a Luna," She smiled, trying to make me feel better.

"I don't want this." I blurted out and my father frowned in disapproval. I knew he was beyond ecstatic that both of his children had been selected.

My mother gave me a warning look and mindlinked me.

"I know baby, but you're going to be fine. Be openminded, you might actually fall in love." She said and I bit my lip in annoyance.

"Why..don't we go somewhere quiet to talk, princess?" Alpha Logan asked, noticing my tears.

I was so embarrassed.

This must have been hard for him too, watching the girl he had selected cry because of it. He placed his arm out for me and I nodded politely, wrapping my arm around his.

He led us outside to the fields where there was a bed of sunflowers.

"So you are the Beta's daughter?" He asked, attempting to strike conversation.
