Alpha Nocturne’s Contracted Mate by A E Randell

Chapter 58 Fate Was Indeed Cruel

Adam growled loudly as he pounded into her harder and allowed her legs to fall to his waist and as she came undone around him and he released inside of her, he leaned forward, his fangs elongating as he sank his teeth into the soft flesh of her neck.

Ann gripped hold of him greedily as she too did the same and almost instantly, their vision seemed to explode in bright lights.

They lapped tenderly at each of the new marks and lay panting above each other for a while.

Ann couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sadness that this wasn’t a reality… that Adam wasn’t her true mate. Maybe… just maybe… in another life… they would find each other and be happy.

But it wouldn’t be this one… this life was too cruel beyond words…

Unbeknownst to Ann, Adam felt exactly the same. Ann was perfect in his eyes and was everything that he had imagined that his true mate and Luna would be. But fate was indeed cruel.

He stroked her cheek softly as he gazed at her flushed face. She was beautiful and everything in him wanted to tell her those all-important three words that could change everything.

But, he didn’t.

She had been hurt so badly before and had already said that she didn’t want to get her hopes up in this relationship with him. The thought of them ever being apart made him feel irrationally angry and he leaned forward to kiss her lips, in an attempt to appease the anger in his heart.

Ann smiled softly and reached up to run her hands through his hair tenderly.

“Are you okay?” She asked with a slight frown, searching his eyes for an answer that he couldn’t give her.

He smiled in response but said nothing, and reluctantly rolled off her, as she gasped at the loss of him from inside of her.

With a heavy heart, Adam reached for the two glasses of liquid at the side of the bed and narrowed his eyes distastefully at them.

“I guess this is the part where we drink…” Ann said with a nervous laugh.

Adam nodded slowly at her and passed her the glass. “At the same time then?” She asked with a slight tremble in her voice.

It took everything that Adam had in him, not to throw the glasses against the wall and flee from this place, with Ann in his arms. But there really was no other alternative.

There was just too much at stake.

They brought their glasses together in a mock toast and smiled wryly at each other as they tipped the liquid into their mouths.

The last thing Adam saw was the terrifying sight of Ann slumping lifelessly to the bed, and the utter feeling of helplessness and panic that washed over him seconds before he too succ*umbed to the darkness.

As soon as Adam’s eyes opened, he jolted awake and sat bolt upright in bed, looking around himself frantically as the ghost of the panic that he felt before he fell asleep a*s*saulted him violently.

He looked across to his side and frowned as he realized that he was back in his own bedroom, and Ann was fast asleep still beside him. He reached out and moved the errant strands of hair away from her face as he watched the soft movement of her chest under the duvet.

“N’aaw how sweet. You really do care for her, don’t you, wolf boy?” An amused voice came from the other side of the room.

Adam whipped his head around quickly and his body tensed instantly ready to attack whoever had dared to intrude into his personal space without an invite, but he was met with the sound of a chuckle.

“Relax furball, I just wanted to make sure that you both woke up okay,” Lexi said as she appeared out of the shadows that lined the far side of his room.

Adam heaved a sigh of relief as he narrowed his eyes dangerously in her direction, wary of her intent.

“Hmm. Papa did say that I shouldn’t tease you too much when you woke up in case you were a little grumpy, the sedative sometimes has the nasty side effect of making people hyper aggressive… but I figured that was no different from normal Alpha’s so…” She trailed off with a shrug as she examined her nails casually.

Adam remained silent. His head was still a little foggy and it felt like he had spent the previous night drinking. Even if he had wanted to reply, it most likely wouldn’t have been too impressive of a response.

Lexi sighed as she approached the edge of the bed and sat down, staring fondly at Ann’s sleeping form. 

“You need to look out for this one, wolfy. She’s more important to me than I can put into words,” She said softly with a sigh, a rare look of affection crossing her features before she quickly schooled her face back into an expression of neutrality and fixed Adam with a serious stare.

“The mark will need to be redone from time to time. It’s not a permanent solution, as we mentioned previously. As soon as it starts looking a little iffy, then have Ann call me okay?”

Adam nodded slowly.

“Is there anything we should look out for?”

Lexi appeared thoughtful for a minute as her eyes flashed in the darkness,

“Well, I would think it will start to look a little angry around the edges. At the minute, you can get away with it, because it’s fresh, but after the mark settles into the usual silvery white scar, then any redness should be immediately obvious.”

“How long do you think until we need to be worried?”

Lexi snorted.
