His Forgotten Mate.
"Oh my god stop." Alex had ripped my thoughts from Matt completely and once the tickling had stopped I whipped my head around to see Alex in a somewhat protective stance, he was glaring. I followed his line of sight and saw Matt approaching our table.
"Lola, looking gorgeous as ever today." Matt sat his hand on her lap. A part of me almost died when I gave her a look and she didn't throw his hand off. Instead she turned to face him a smile on her face.
"Hey Matty." I cringed, since when were they friends? Were they more? My heart tightened.
"When are we going to make this happen?" He rubbed the place on her thigh gently with his thumb. I felt Alex's hand hold onto me tighter his eyes searching my face unsure of what to do. I couldn't cry. I shouldn't say anything.
"Whenever Tahlia says it's okay." She turned her attention to me putting me on the spot completely, everyone was looking at me and I do mean everyone. Alex didn't let me go.
"Why would it matter what she says?" Matt gave her a confused look. I was screaming inside, praying she wouldn't say it, hoping my friend was still somewhere in there. She looked at me with an almost predatory look. My insides churned, why was she doing this to me?
"Well haven't you heard. She's your mate." My heart tore completely into two, I couldn't speak and my whole body went numb. I have never felt so betrayed in my life. Matt looked at me as if I was the most pathetic thing he had ever seen.
Standing up he approached me touching my face gently. The touch sent chills through me. Alex pushed him away from me and I was happy he had, Matt smirked.
"What are you her boyfriend?" Alex turned red at the comment.
Matt then turned his attention to me and I could see that this was not going to end well for me. He spoke loud enough so that everyone could hear. Lola had a smirk on her face as he spoke the words that crushed what was left of my soul.
"I don't want you. You're not my mate and you never will be."
