I was seven when this happened. My memory isn't too great of that day.But for some reason,it never leaves me.
My father pats my head and smiles.
"You will become Alpha of the pack when you turn eighteen.You are very powerful,so I expect for you to be a good leader."
"I will !"
"But also keep in mind about your mate."
Seriously,this talk again.I heard it from my uncle,and now I have to hear it from this guy.To be honest, I don't want a mate! All he'll do is distract me from being a good leader.He looks at me.
"You will find your mate when the
time is right."
"I don't want a mate !"
I gasp.Why did I just yell that out loud ?He'll probably be dissapointed,tell my uncle and I won't be Alpha anymore. No,no,no ! I take it back !! He smiles. Wait...what ?
"You don't get to choose your fate."
"But I don't need a mate.All he'll be is a distraction."
Why am I opening myself so much to him ?He looks up at the starry sky.
"A mate isn't a distraction,unless you want them to be.They're...like an...everything to you.I don't know how to explain it.But when the time comes,you'll know."
I sigh and lay down on the grass.Why does everyone talk so much about a mate ?Well,I'll be an Alpha soon and that'll be my only everything !
At that time,I didn't know that man was my father.I just thought he was another wolf talking to me about a mate.After that discussion,I never saw him again.He might've ran away,been killed,or maybe kidnapped but no one ever heard anything from him again.Just like that,he was forgotten.That discussion never leaves me.The only thing that IS erasing is his image.It slowly fades away.But all I care about is that I will become Alpha of the Shadow Moon pack in eleven years and I will NOT let a mate distract me.
