Sophia's POV
"Svegliati Sophia it's your birthday!" My little sister says jumping up on me to get up. I curse in Italian that way my sister doesn't understand.

"What time is it Laura," I groan sitting up.

"It's 9:34," she says getting off me and dragging me by your arm. "Mom made you breakfast." That made me jump out of bed. 'Yay I love her breakfast,' my wolf says in my head. 'Me too,' I agree. I walk downstairs while Laura jumps down them.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY," my family wishes me. I turn 18 today and I'm supposed to find my mate.

"So you excited to find your mate?" James, my older brother, smirks. We're three years apart but everyone says we look like twins.

"Of course who isn't," I exclaimed. My wolf jumps in my head at the word 'mate'. We've been excited since we first met each other when I shifted at 15. 'I wonder what he's going to be like. Maybe he's tall. Is he even in the pack?' My wolf started wondering as she paced in my mind.

"Dad is doing pack work with Alpha Ken at the pack house," Mom said. I sigh not surprised. My dad is beta so, he's barely around and when he does he always sleeps. We live separately from the pack house cause mom wanted privacy from all the other wolves.

"He'll be here for your party and Alpha, Luna, and Terry will be there too," she adds. I internally groan when she says that. Him and I used to be friends until other people, wait, everyone in our school wanted to be friends of the 'Alpha's son'. He eventually found a girlfriend and didn't wait for his mate. I feel bad for anyone who's his mate.

"I going to go on a run I'll be back in time," I say walking into my room to grab a bag I undress outside and stuff my clothes into the bag and leave it on the porch. Nudity is normal around us wolves it just feels weird in front of my family. I shift into my dark silver wolf and start towards the forest. My wolf went down the path she usually takes. It leads to a pasture that she sometime meet my friend's wolf.

I get to the pasture and see Maya's wolf sitting there.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCH," she mind links me as her wolf tackles mine. Our wolves mess around for awhile as her and I have a conversation in out private mind link. We talk about what I think our mate will be like. For what seems like a short time, it's been a few hours. I look at the sky and see the sun start to set. Maya and I say our goodbyes and we start to head back. I shift back and change before I walk into the house.

"Sophia?" I heard mom ask from her room.

"Yeah?" I call back grabbing a cookie from the jar and stuffing it into my mouth.

"You have an hour to get ready," she shouts back. I wish she wouldn't shout that much especially with our sensitive hearing. That was a big problem when James was going through puberty.

I walk into my room and take out my outfit I was going to wear. I didn't put too much makeup on because it always feels cakey on my face. As I was getting ready, there was a knock on the door. I open it and it was my dad.

"Dad," I smile giving him a hug.

"Happy birthday tesoro," he says.

(Sweetheart)

"Are you ready?" He asks waiting for me.

"Yup," I smile and walk with him out the door.

As I walk outside I hear cheers for me. I give a soft laugh in nervousness. I made my rounds with everyone and talked with them. Since I am the Beta's daughter my birthday is a big deal. After a few hours, I caught scent of a heavenly smell of chocolate mixed with cinnamon. I look around and lock eyes with Terry. My wolf jumps around in my head repeating the one word I didn't want to hear when I look at him.

'Mate,' she says excited.

Terry's eyes flashed black with anger then back to his regular eyes. He walks off from Kira, his girlfriend and grabs my arm and drags me into my house.

"You are not fit to me my Luna," he spits into my face.

"B-But your my m-mate," I stutter.

"Doesn't matter I have Kira to be by my side when I become Alpha." Before I can say anything, he cuts me off with something that is rarely heard of in the werewolf world.

"I Terry Moore reject you, Sophia Moretti, as my mate and future Luna," he says each word piercing my heart. And with that, he walks off joining back to the party. I felt the connection to my wolf disappears as she whimpers at the fact our mate rejected us. I couldn't handle the pain I was feeling in the pit of my stomach. I looked at the backyard and the front door. The pain was too much for me to handle. I couldn't bare to see him again so I took of out the door into the forest. When I could see the pack border, I mind link my family.

"I'm leaving for a few days I'll be fine don't worry about me." I make it quick and block my mind link. As I cross the pack border I could feel the ties with the pack break. My wolf whimpers as the ties with my family and friends break away from me. I was now a rogue. I had no plan to come back and face Terry again. I don't want to be under the rule of my mate who rejected me. I don't need a reminder every day knowing no one wants me.

'Mate rejected us,' she cries in my head.

'I know, he's not worth it,' I try to say with confidence but it came out weak.

(Hours later)
I didn't stop running for one minute. My legs were in so much pain that I couldn't feel them anymore.

'I'm sorry,' I whisper to my wolf.

She doesn't respond. In that second, I felt a sharp pain in my abdomen. I collapse and roll into a tree.

'Heat,' my wolf tells me.

'I thought it was going to come later than that,' I say frantically. The pain got worse worse every minute. In the distance, I heard a few howls in the distance. Wolves. There was a low growl a few feet away from me. I started to shift back into human from the immense pain.

"Shift," the low voice commanded as I already was shifting.

Alpha Titus' POV
I was contacted by border patrol that they smelled a rogue nearing the border. My wolf starts to stir in my head at the mention of that specific rogue. I contact my beta and gamma to meet me at the border. As I approach, the dark silver wolf wincing laying on their stomach.

"Shift," I command using my Alpha tone while she was already shifting back.

'She smells like you,' I mind link my Beta, Brody. He gives me a look of confusion.

'Not exactly like you. She just smells like your position in this pack as Beta,' I say clearing up the confusion.

'Maybe she's a daughter of a Beta,' my Gamma chimes in the mind link.

"What pack are you from," I ask forcefully using my Alpha tone again. She tries to say something but it comes out as a mumble. She looks up and when our eyes meet her, I heard my wolf repeat a word I though I'd never hear again.

'Mate'

I didn't want to publish this because I started this book for fun and I have a track record of not completing books. I will try to keep up with updates but no promises.

Dear new readers,
Hi it's me. Right now it's September 2nd,  2019. I started this book in April. I'm only 14 and since April I've learned to become a stronger writer. Unfortunately you are reading the chapter when I haven't learned a lot. So please forgive the speed of how the book is going. I have gotten a lot of great comments and some hate but it's okay cause I can handle it. As time goes on and I see more problems arise I'll make little notes at the end of chapters.
