"What are you doing out here?" The young Alpha asked me, his forest green eyes full of concern. "Running." I answered simply. And it was true, I was running. Running from the mate that rejected me. I couldn't stay in my pack anymore. I just couldn't. "From what?" He crouched so that our eyes could be leveled. He seemed to be sincerely concerned. "Everything." Everything at my old pack was a reminder of what I could have had. "Why?" He tilted his head, interested. "My mate rejected me." As I said the words my heart seemed to shatter once again and since I wasn't numb with shock anymore I could really feel it. I tried so hard to hold in my tears but one escaped and slide down my cheek. This is why He rejected me. I was weak and pathetic. I would have been a horrible Luna. I looked up and saw that his face was filled with understanding and sadness. "I understand how you feel." He said softly catching the tear that managed to get out with his finger. I laughed humorlessly. "No you don't. How could you?" He was just trying to make me feel better and as sweet as that was it wasn't helping because he really did not know the pain I was going through right now. He stood and offered me a helping hand. "My mate rejected me too."
