No Choice But Reject You

"I have to- I have to reject you." He stared at me with remorse all over his face and I knew- I know he didn't want to. I know he was forced into this. I look past him and see the former alpha staring at me as if ready for me to pick a fight. "Why?" I look my mate in the eyes, my voice coming out clear and strong, everything I was not feeling at the moment. "For the pack. I- I'm sorry but we need the alliance treaty..." he trailed off. He isn't even looking at me anymore. He's planting lasers on the ground as if willing it to swallow him whole. I clench my fists and breathe out. "So this has nothing to do with the fact that I'm an omega?" This brings his head up and with the guilt all over his face, I just laugh instead. A dry humorless laugh. "Don't worry, I accept your rejection wholeheartedly. From now on we are strangers, nothing more; I deny the gift of the moon Goddess. I will also accept the consequences whenever the Goddess deem fit." With that, I step back and walk away with my shoulders straight and my head held high.

"Sapphire! Where have you been all this time!?" I turn my gaze to mom Noelle before me and give her a sheepish smile.

"I was doing the laundry, mom." I explain showing her the basket filled with freshly washed clothes. Her eyes widen slightly as she limps over towards me with a disapproving look.

"Sapphire Blu! I told you to concentrate on your studies! I didn't tell you to do chores!" I sigh and give my mother an exasperated sigh. She could barely walk properly and she expects me to just sit by and watch her do all the pack housework.

"Mom, it's a saturday; there are over 500 people in this pack and there are only six omegas including you and me both do you

honestly think I would leave all the chores to you?" I give her a flat stare and she looks away to take a deep breath.

"Saph, this isn't the kind of life You should be living." She says gently, taking the blue laundry basket from me.

"It doesn't matter. In this lifetime I am born an omega. I am meant to live this life ma. We can't deny that." She looks at me like she wants to say something but holds her tongue as she turns her heel and heads to our tiny wooden cottage.

"You are so lucky your mom does not make you work." I startle and turn to the redhead climbing down one of the many trees surrounding the cottage.

"How long have you been there, Red?" Yes, my best—friend's name is quite obvious.

"About an hour now?" I cock my eyebrows towards her and she sighs as she finally reaches me.

"I'm hiding from my mom. She wants me to clean the common bathrooms and that is never happening. Do you know how many men miss the urinary when they pee? It's just nasty!" I scrunch my face and give her a disgusted look.

"Too much information!" She laughs out loud and decides to sit on the leaf covered ground.

"What are you doing?" I ask eyeing her position as she starts to lie flat on her back.

"Laying down."

"I know that. But why?" Instead of answering me, she pulls me beside her, the leaves crunching under my weight.

"Because this is a rare moment. For the past fifteen years we've always been running errands. We had no chance to take a breather. With the festivities and all it's nice to have nothing to do, you know?" I understand her completely.

Ever since we were five we have been tasked some sort of chore. I was lucky though because mom would always do the chore for me instead but Red's mother thought otherwise.

"It's kind of sad though." I state staring at the swirls of white that danced across the sky.

"Huh?" I could feel Red's eyes at the side of my face. She really doesn't realise.

"Why do you think we were given a day off?" I ask rhetorically, still staring at the sky.

"Sorry Saph but I still don't — oh no they didn't!!!" She suddenly sits up from her position and stares straight ahead as reality dawns on her. I smile and shake my head.

"We were kept out on purpose. Two packs are visiting and for some reason this pack is known as the nicest pack— whatever that entails. All the packs around us think this pack has no omegas, thet we are all equals. Honestly it's stupid but whatever." I shrug and pull her back down to stare at the sky.

"How do you even know this?" Shit. I try to look unfazed at her question.

"People talk, Red." She sighs seeming satisfied by my answer. Truth is, mother has me studying all the packs in the world. Yes, the world. I don't know where she gets all the updated information from and I don't know why she has asked me to keep it secret and I especially don't know how it will help me in life but they say mothers know best.

"Hey, do you wanna crash the party?" I give her a scolding look and shake my head.

"Why are there festivities?" I laugh out loud. Of course she wouldn't know.

"The Alpha's son has returned from warrior training." I explain feeling my wolf suddenly perk up.

'You've missed him haven't you?' My wolf barks and wags her tail excitedly.

'I've missed him too.' I reply silently to my wolf who all but paces in circles. I've always been close friends with Henry, the Alpha's son. For some reason we always clicked and had a good relationship but at 16 he had to be sent to the royal palace to train as a warrior— a warrior for the kingdom, Alphas are technically warrior reserves. They'd have to fight for the kingdom if the true kingdom warriors can no longer fight; that or they have to send back up when needed.

"Exactly. He's returned and here you are hiding away instead of welcoming me."

." I lift my head from my position as I felt goosebumps on my skin. For some reason I felt giddy and excited and happy. My wolf perked up and I could feel her wag her tail in excitement.

I squint my eyes and sit up from my position, looking for him but all I see are endless rows of trees surrounding me.

"Behind you, Princess." I turn around and get up on my feet as fast as I can and jump on him wrapping my arms and legs around him. I momentarily forget the existence of Red as tingles erupt down my spine. My wolf howls in content and happiness and that's when it all finally clicked.

"Mate." He whispers so softly, that I almost did not hear him. An overwhelming sense of emotion engulfed me and I revelled in it.
