“How about you wait until I give you answers to slap me again, okay?” He asks me, somewhat annoyed. Crap, maybe I should stop at the moment and just act coy and obedient until I can get out of this, a werewolf being annoyed or mad at their mate, even if it's not actually their mate but that just think they are for whatever reason, is some serious shit.

“Okay.” I bitterly agree, letting Alf guide me across the room, but refusing what he tries to pull me onto his lap.

“No, not gonna happen. Answers now, or I swear on chocolate milk that I will jump out that window in an attempt to escape.” I threaten. What Alf doesn't know is that wouldn't kill me, not unless he decieded to follow.

“Okay, baby steps here. Now I can explain, but don't say anything until I'm done, promise?” He asks.

“Promise.” I reply, decieding to go along with it, even though I already know what's going on to more of an extent than he does, but I want to hear what he thinks is going on. But I swear if he says I'm playing hard to get I will jump through the window, immortality but still prone to mortal injuries for short periods of time be damned.

“Now, this is going to be hard to understand, and it's really hard to explain, but I'm just gonna say it. I'm a werewolf. Now, now, I know, this is a hard thing to believe and when you do it's hard to come to terms with, but you have to believe me on this. Look, I'll even show you,” Alf starts transforms himself into wolf form, and then after a few minutes turns back into human form again, “See? And werewolves, like in those stories you've probably heard, we have mates. Now normally these mates are other werewolves, but sometimes they are human. And other times, even more rarely, the instant mate bond and feelings don't form for both ends, so they have to grow like a human relationship. It's never happened before for there to be a mate pair with both a human and a servered bond, but it is possible and that's what we, our Alpha Jake and I, believe is happening now. Look, I know you may not believe me on this, but please, I love you, and I'm willing to wait until you can return these feelings.” Alf pleads.

“Alf-

“No, let me finish.” He stops me.

“Alf, no you have to lis-” He cuts me off again.

“I'm not done, just let me finish.”

“ALF I'M SORRY BUT I'M NOT YOUR MATE!” I scream, finally he shuts up and listens.

“Thank you. Now, I already knew you were a werewolf, I figured it out a while ago, but I know I'm not your mate. Just think about this rationally. Why didn't you feel the bond when you first saw me? We were together for hours before we kissed. Look, there's something hard for you to understand, but I have a curse that's been placed on me, and it's been there a long time, and I think that because of it when we kissed, and that was part of the curse, I would have died if we didn't, it formed some kind of bond like a mate bond, but that's not what it is, and I'm so sorry. But you're mate is probably still out there, and I will not get in the way of two soulmates because my curse is being a bitch. Just please, let me leave, and the bond that you're feeling should fade, and you'll be able to find your mate, your real mate.” I plead.

“No, I refuse to believe that. I don't care if there's a curse on you, the universe brought us together!” Alf exclaims.

“But I don't love you, and I can't!”

“Yes, you can! Just give it time!”

“No, you don't understand, and you're never going to! I'm aromantic, I'm never going to be able to return your feelings!”

“You're what? Look, if that's something that's part of the curse, we can break it!” Alf argues. Oh no, he did not just play that card.

“It's not part of the curse, you idiot! It's my sexuality, and it's always been that way, for all my lives, and it's not going to change, I'm not going to change!” I scream. Alf and Jake look t me shocked.

“Look, I'm very sorry.” I apoligize, even though it's not my fault. The curse isn't my fault, my sexuality isn't my fault, getting kidnapped isn't my fault. But apoligises seem to fix things, make them better, but only for a little while. Apoligies are tape. But at the moment, all I need is tape. I need to make this better just long enough that I can leave, and this bond can fade and leave Alf alone, and then he may just be able to piece it together and find his mate and make it so that she never has to get tangled in this mess.

Yes, I'm worrying about her right now, even though I don't know who she is. But I know she is out there. If a werewolf dies before they find their mate the pack has warlock and witch contacts that will find the mate so they can contact them with the news. Alf doesn't seem like a dazed heartbroken werewolf still believing his mate is out there, and if he was his pack and his alpha wouldn't be on his side on kidnapping someone in false hopes that she may be his mate when they know she's not. That means she, his real mate, is out there, and judging by how old Alf seems to be, they are going to meet soon, and I don't want her to be caught in any part of this. I want it to be some story her mate tells her, maybe one day be invited to their wedding, if this ends on a good note. But I would hate for her to be hurt by this, because I know for Alf that right now, and when I leave, which I will do, that this bites ass. It feels like his mate is rejecting him. And when that happens, from what I've seen from when I once stayed with a pack of werewolves for 20 years when I had to lay low, that when a rejection happens it's the most painful thing to happen to a werewolf, worse than death. Their mates mean everything to them. Which is why I want to sort this out and leave quickly and cleanly, so I don't cause anymore hurt.

That doesn't seem to be Alf's plan though. He walks towards me, and places a hand on each side of my face.

“We will work this out, I promise. And you will see that we are soulmates. I'm not giving up on you.” He leans in for a kiss but he gets another slap before he has the chance.

“Ass.”
