"Why did you reach for my mask" I bite back and his eyes shift back to the majestic blue. "Because I want to see my mates beautiful face" he smiles. Its almost like his Alpha wolf took over but somehow he listened in and just jumped into the conversation. What the fuck. "Well you can't see it" I bite back. His face falls. I'm being irrational right now but I don't care. "Why?" he asks almost sadly. It nearly breaks my heart. Snap out of it Char! "Because its all I will have left" I snap and I know we are jumping back to our earlier conversation. "Why will your face be all you have left? I already know your name. I know your scent. I know your lips" he smirks the last part and I glare at him. But I feel my lips tingle with his words as if he is already touching them. "Because my face is all I will have left. You will take my freedom. You will take my name. You will make me into someone I am not. You will make me into the person you want me to be. And once you see my face you can start my transformation" I say digging my nails into my crossed arms. "So what?" he sighs frustrated "you will be My Masked Mate forever?!" he questions on edge. "I guess I am" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Every year a mate ball is thrown. The balls main reason is for mates to find each other but this year is different. The soon to be Alpha turns 25 and he has not yet found his mate and he can not become Alpha without his Luna. Every mate less female is required to come to see if the Alpha is there mate. Hundreds will come but only one Princess will be the Alphas mate. Or will she be a Princess at all?
