A Heart of darkness.
"You should run while you still can Mason. No one wants damaged goods"
"You're my mate, why would I run?" his voice barely above a whisper, as his lips hovered lightly in front of hers.
I shook my head and glared at him, "Cant you see? I bring nothing but pain and darkness!" I shoved him, which didnt even seem to phase him.
His jaw set hard as he stared at me with dark eyes, "I already know the truth, I know everything Aliana. I dont care" his voice was firm with absolute.
"Then you'll die with them, you'll all leave, its just a matter of time before you follow"
"As long as your heart beats, then I will fight to survive, I'll fight Aliana, but its not for victory or for freedom, I'll fight so we can live forever" his hands cupped my cheeks as I felt tears fall.
I looked up at him with sad eyes, his piercing eyes held mine, "Promise to stay with me forever"
He nodded and leaned in, his lips grazing over mine. "I promise you an eternity" he whispered, sealing his promise with a kiss.
Aliana has always despised rogues, and no one knows why. She has a past where along the way makes her change her mind about having a mate. She needs to be strong, and she believes having a mate will cause distraction and above all else, death.
All Mason wants is his mate, to love her and to protect her. To treat her as his queen, but when he meets Aliana, she is stubborn and always running away from him.
What makes it worse is that she just so happens to be Alpha of a huge pack, along with Mason. Having one dominant Alpha is enough, but now that there are two Alpha mates in this equation, there is bound to be chaos.
