Arlo's POV

Two months, fourteen days and six hours. That's how long it's been since my beautiful mate left this school.

It's been two months and fifteen days since she rejected me.

Although, it feels as though it has been so much longer. Losing her felt like I lost a part of myself. The saying 'you never know what you have until you lose it' is so accurate to this situation right now. I guess you never know how important someone is to you until you don't have them anymore. I didn't have Lily for long, but I should have been more grateful for the time I had with her. Now that she's gone, I don't know what to do with myself.

I attend school, I help Arden with pack business but it's all robotic. I have gone into autopilot mode and I don't want to get out of it. It hurts to be present. It hurts to think about her.

Some nights I sit under her window in wolf form and recall the pleasant memories I have of her. I like to picture her smile. Her left dimple would pop out and her eyes would shine brighter than any star. I hold onto that image for dear life—scared that if I lose it, I will lose every single memory of her.

Arden and Talia try to help me. They attempt to talk to me about it, but I always brush them off. I'm thankful to them but I don't want to talk about my feelings. I want Lily back.

The clock on my bedside table ticks loudly beside me, announcing that another minute has gone.

Another minute without Lily.

My aching heart struggles to find the motivation to care about anything else but work. The pack is frantic right now, searching for the rogue that attacked Lily two months ago. Shortly after capturing it, it managed to escape. Arden is furious about it—he has been dedicating most of his time scanning the woods for the rogue. He's convinced the wolf is still hiding out in the woods, waiting for the opportunity to strike again.
