Astrophysical ↠ Sam Uley
❝Your bones make bridges for my hands to cross. I think I will build houses on your shoulders and live within you for as long as you allow. If I can't create my own warmth, can I borrow some of yours?❞
With the veil that covered the knowledge of werewolves from Augustus and his older sister, Emily lifted ; Augustus, also known as Gus, took it upon himself to live up to the family trait of becoming a beast every full moon.
Then, with a twist of fate, the moons pass and Augustus is still left as a human. Shaming his family, he is forced to listen as the boys around him begin to transform into their full potential.
Which brings the climax of Sam Uley into his life - the boy who not only had been engaged to on Augustus's cousin, Leah, before his phase; but the boy who had broken Leah's heart in order to pursue Augustus's affections.
Harboring dark desires for the older boy, Augustus is left by himself as Sam is forced to be by his side with the force of an imprint. The alpha werewolf left with the deformity that is Augustus and all of his issues; instead of being with Leah; the girl who he'd thought he'd be imprinted with.
The alpha is supposed to be given the perfect soulmate, which begs the answer to one question: If the alpha's mate is supposed to see everything the alpha doesn't; than why pair the alpha up with someone like Augustus who's been blind since he was twelve?
