It had been a week since Everything went down with Alpha Parker and Alpha Matthew and things were slowly starting to get back to normal. We weren't one hundred percent sure where Alpha Matthew had gone to as he disappeared with the witch but after scouting the area and not finding him anywhere we just assumed the witch council had taken him to. After all he had used their powers for greed and power and to over throw the Moon Goddess, surely that couldn't go unanswered.

The packs that had come to help Jax out had all gone there separate ways, minus the odd few people who had found their mates. It was actually a really good idea to get loads of packs together into one territory, it helped solidify trust and treaties between each other and also expanded our social circles helping us find our mates. I think it's something I might bring up with Jax, something that we do each year that everyone was welcome to.

My parents had decided to come and stay with me in Jax's territory which I was beyond happy about. It was weird at first, the idea of having that parental figure who would look after you but I quickly got used to it. It was something I had craved for most of my life.

Mum was trying to help me get to grips with this moon goddess link I have but she didn't know to much herself. She was only the messenger for about a year before she was taken and held captive.

Apparently it was the choice of the moon goddess when to pass down the responsibility onto the next generation. The only catch was the chosen one had to have found their mate to withstand the amount of strain the link could take on their wolf. Hence why I didn't become messenger until after I had met Jax.

Things with me and him are going amazingly, he's as caring and as devoted as when I first stumbled into him. If I was being honest I kind of wished he wouldn't treat me so delicately, he acted as if I was a snowflake and the world was a giant flame ready to melt me at any second. As much as I loved him it had to stop.

I'm hoping today will be the day that things start to progress in our relationship. It was the Luna ceremony today, the day I will officially be welcomed into the pack and given the honour of becoming their Luna.

To say I was a mixture of excited and nervous would be an understatement.

I stared at myself in the mirror as I watched my mum put the last finishing touches to my hair, placing delicate white flowers into my long, curly blond locks.

"You look stunning Honey" my mum smiled at me through the reflection of the mirror, her eyes glazing over with tears. "I never thought I'd get a chance to see you again, let alone be there for the day you perform the Luna ceremony".

I smiled back at her as she kissed the top of my head, to emotional to even come up with words to describe how happy it makes me that my parents are here for this. "I love you mum" I whispered as I tried to hold back my own tears, not wanting to ruin the makeup Hannah had spent ages doing.

"No no no none of that" Hannah said as she fluttered around the room making sure we had everything. She had taken one look at me and instantly started fretting about my mascara. "We don't have time to redo your makeup Anna, please don't cry otherwise we'll be late".

I rolled my eyes at her as a smile slipped onto my face. This was my life now, I had people who actually cared about me and I couldn't be happier with how my life had turned out. I'd go through the hell I went through at the Leftens house ten times over if it meant I could have this waiting at the end for me.

"Come on come on it's time to get going, I've got your shoes, your mum has your garland for around your neck and you have... well you so come on!"

I laughed at Hannah's excitement before taking her hand as she lead me out of mine and Jax's room and down the stairs and towards the garden. My heart started to race the closer I got to the back door. I knew that on the other side of that door hundreds of people were sitting and waiting to catch a glimpse of me and bestow their trust and faith onto me as their new Luna.

No pressure or anything.

Just as I started to feel my hands clam up and a cold sweat begin to break out across my skin I felt a presence behind me that instantly calmed me. Jax.

I could feel his heat radiating through the back of my dress and I quickly turned round in his arms and held onto him for dear life. He was my comfort and my safe place in all of this mayhem.

"You look absolutely beautiful my little mate, I really did get lucky when the moon goddess gave me to you" he whispered as he breathed into my hair. His scent was surrounding me as he held me in his arms and I couldn't help but burry myself into him further.

"I think I'm the lucky one in this pairing Jax, no way would I have been able to survive any of this without you" I managed to get out as my face was smashed into his chest.

I smiled as I felt his deep chuckle in his chest "Well then I think on this occasion we may just have to agree to disagree... agreed?"

I laughed slightly before nodding my head "agreed".

"Right two minutes love birds!" We heard Hannah shout from outside through the open window.

"I think she's more exited than us" I laughed.

Jax laughed too before taking my face in my hands and tilting my face up so I could look into his eyes.

"Nobody is more exited than I am for this moment my little mate, to finally call you my own. I love you with all my heart and with everything that I have and I can't wait to tell the whole world that you are mine and I am yours".

I stood there stunned. It wasn't just his words that made me tear up in that moment, it was the look he was giving me as we stared into each other's eyes. Like I was the air he breathed, the sun in his universe, like I was the one thing in his life that he truly couldn't live without.

I don't know if it was his words, or his expression or the situation we were in but before I over thought about it to much I reached up onto my tip toes and pressed my lips to his.

He froze for a second, taken completely off guard by my actions and I panicked thinking I had done something wrong but I instantly relaxed as I felt him wrap his arms around my waist and drew my in close. Our body's were flush together, fitting perfectly and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place or person to share my first kiss with.
