Morning after the fight
I woke up, still annoyed at Hayley. My wolf was mad at me for being mad at Hayley, but I was mad she picked through my head. You just can't do that to someone.

I rubbed my neck, as the couch wasn't that comfortable, and looked at the empty bed. Hayley wasn't in the bed, and I will admit, I got a little worried when I couldn't see her.

I looked over at the balcony and relaxed when I saw Hayley. She looked exhausted, and I realized she probably feels like hell. She should, though.

But I couldn't help but soften my expression as I saw her. She looked so broken and fragile, I had to resist going out there and putting my arms around her and apologizing for being such a dick. I couldn't be like that with her when I have Bella now.

Hayley turned to come back in, and I quickly turned away and got up.

"Hey," she said.

It took every ounce of self control to not reply to her.

"I'm sorry about what I said last night," she said, knowing she was going to have to be the one to apologize since I wasn't going to. "I shouldn't have said anything that I did."

"No, you shouldn't have," I said, surprised by how sour my voice sounded.

"Okay then," she said. "You obviously don't care what you said, so I guess I'm going to be the only one apologizing. I'm gonna go then."

"You shouldn't have went through my thoughts," I said suddenly, surprising myself by still speaking to her. "I would be apologizing too right now if you hadn't done that."

I heard her take a deep breath to calm herself down. "I'm not going to say anything, so I'm going to leave before I do."

"You don't have to say anything," I said. "Just don't go through my head."

"It's not like I went through all of your personal memories. The mind link was just open and I heard what you were thinking. I shut it out as soon as I registered it was on. I'm sure Brooke did too, and yet you're furious at me," she said in annoyance.

"Because she wasn't the one who intentionally violated my privacy," I snapped.

"And you think I did?" she snapped back. "I don't like being an Alpha's daughter. I'd much rather be anything else."

I snorted. "Yeah, right. Because there's such a problem with being the child of an Alpha. You must be miserable." It couldn't be that bad.

She glared at me. "You know I am. At least you have parents who don't hate your guts and a mom you can actually talk to on a daily basis."

"Aw poor Hayley, not having any of her family love her. Get over it." I was annoyed with her, and I regretted what I said to her, only I couldn't think through my anger.

She then snapped at me, only it was her wolf talking now. "DON'T YOU EVER F*CKING SAY THAT TO ME AGAIN! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY THAT TO ME, AND YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT. SO SHUT THE HELL UP BEFORE I DO IT FOR YOU!"

She took a deep breath to calm myself and turned away from me. "I'm going. Don't talk to me. If you do, I might just rip your throat out."

I registered what I said and realized that I just said the worst thing I could've ever have said to her.

"Wait, Hayley-" I started, but she was already out the door.

I punched the couch in frustration. "God dammit!" I could be such an asshole. It didn't help that my moods got out on control around Hayley. With Bella, I could control myself but Hayley could make me feel every emotion at once.
