“Are you alright?”
“I’m fine. It’s just… I’ve grown up hating all those that are higher rank. It’s hard to trust anyone even you because they have always lied and treated me like the runt I am.”
Suddenly arms surrounded me.
Terra held me close,
“You are not a runt Alex. You are my Hero. My parents even respect you now. You’ve moved up in rank to. Forget what everyone use to think of you. You are no longer a runt, you are rightful member of the pack.”
I melted into her embrace,
“Thank you Terra.”
I gently gabbed Terra and pulled her down onto my lap.
I pulled her close to me and rested my forehead on her shoulder,
“Do you mean everything you say? About liking me?
“Yes, I did. I love you Alex. I want to be by your side forever.”
I placed my lips against her neck. Terra was tense, but she relaxed as I wrapped my arms around her. I opened my mouth, my fangs grew, Terra’s breath quickened.
A small smile crept onto my lips,
“You will forever be mine.”
As I sank my fangs into Terras neck a small black flame disappeared into her body.
As I pulled away, I licked the blood off her neck; a small scar appeared where I had marked her.
And the black flame surfaced on her skin and took the form of a small black dragon.
Anyone who saw it would know that Terra belonged to me.
Terra sat up and placed her hand on her neck over the mark.
“Good thing I have long hair. So now I’m yours? Who’s the Alpha?
Yes, your mine. And you’re the Alpha because your of higher rank and are better at leading people. I’m Beta because I’m of lower rank and because the Alpha always has to submit to the Beta advances.”
