I stared at the big screen with keen observation and I scoffed
"Is anything wrong Sir?" Mr Benjamin, my fashion director and also the man giving a presentation in front of all the company board members asked
"Well, yes, yes something is wrong" I said and everyone turned to look at me
"Just..... Is this the great ending of the month plan you've been babbling about?" I asked
"Yes Sir" he replied
"Well it isn't so great after all, your...."
I slammed my hand on the table and everyone flinched
"Don't you dare interrupt me when am not done talking!" I said in an overwhelming tone
"Am sorry Sir" he replied wobbly
"This is a fashion and modelling company and you confidently told me you'll come up with an amazing new line of Men's clothing by the end of the month and this is the best your dormant brain could come up with?!" I said as I flinged away the presentation file he kept in front of me
"Come up with a better line by next week or get ready to kiss your job goodbye, I do not tolerate incompetency" I said as I stood up
"I presume we are done here" I said and walked out
My secretary, Alice followed me from behind trying to keep up with my walking pace
"We've employed a new set of fashion designers for the company as you requested Sir, they'll be resuming work tomorrow" Alice said and I nodded
"I don't have anymore meetings do I?" I asked
"No Sir, you don't" she replied
"Good, am off then" I said as I entered my car
"Goodbye Sir" Alice said with a bow
"The mansion?" Landon asked and I nodded
He started the car and I closed my eyes enjoying the silence
"Today's the full moon night" Landon said and I pretended not to hear
"Will you be joining us at the Moon goddess's shrine this time?" He asked but I maintained my silence
"Audrey is at the mansion to attend the ceremony with you" he said
"What?!" I said and he smiled
"I guess I finally said something that got your attention"
"When did she get to the Mansion?" I asked ignoring his previous statement
"Just this morning" he said and I sighed
"Honestly? I don't think Audrey is the right Mate for you, I mean she's just as ruthless as you are, no offense meant but nevertheless, you should go for someone more...."
"The only reason you are still breathing is because you are my blood relative but if you continue to ramble on, I won't hesitate to cut off your tongue" I said
"Sorry Jayden" Landon apologised and the rest of the ride was in silence
"Jayden!!" Audrey shrilled as she ran to hug me
"Can you not do that each time you see me" I said as I walked to my room and she followed me
"Why not, you are my mate"
"Mate to be" I corrected as I entered my room and sat on the couch
"That'll change soon, we are getting married next week"
"When will you announce our wedding to the media?" She asked
"I've already asked my Media aid to do that this morning" I said and she smiled
"Our wedding will be amazing right? Promise me you'll make it spectacular" she said and I scoffed
"You know an Alpha's promise is unbreakable, am always bound to fulfill the promises that I make so I don't make promises, I don't take that risk"
"Fine" she said with a sigh
"Yeah so what are you doing here?" I asked
"Tonight's the full moon night" she said
"Come on, I told you we'll join the ceremony tonight and seek the Moon goddess's blessing for our union" Audrey said
"And I told you I care not about that fanatic goddess's blessing and therefore I am not going with you to seek any forsaken blessing" I said as I stood up to remove my jacket
"Jayden!!" She yelled "The Moon goddess is a respected being in my pack and I won't tolerate you speaking ill of her, the next time you say something like this, I'll make you regret it"
I walked towards her and grabbed her throat
"Don't you dare threaten me!" I said slowly as my fingernails grew and dug into her neck
"Jay..... Jayden you..... you're hurting me" she stuttered as she struggled to break free
"You should know that the only reason for our union is to unite our packs and increase my stronghold over all the werewolves so do not cross your limit Audrey" I said and pushed her aside
"You want to seek your dear goddess's blessing right? Fine I'll go with you but you'll be the one doing the seeking" I said and walked out....
