Sylvias POV:

”Well, its a good thing Shawn took the initiative to reject us himself, ” Yana said in relief.

”I agree entirely.Who knows Id be assigned to be that disgusting playboys mate? ”I sighed and dragged my feet down the stairs.

”Oh, cheer up, honey.At least, Shawn is out of our worries now.Thats a good thing! ” Yana comforted me.

”Yeah, but is it bad that I don think so highly of the mate bond anymore? ” I frowned.

”I understand.But maybe it was just a fluke.Perhaps the second mate lined up for you by the Moon Goddess will be an excellent man. ”

”You think so? Oh, I hope you
e right. ” I thought of the current situation I was in.

Considering that I was still trapped down here, who was I to expect some kind of magical love anyway? Yana must have sensed my emotions and decided to give me some space.

All I wanted was to seek justice for my mother.No matter what I had to face, may it be thorns and blood, I knew I had to forge on for my mother.

But quite frankly, I didn have an idea where to start.

Depression overwhelmed me for a moment.

Obviously, I couldn have one minute of silence for myself as an angry she-wolf came striding towards me.

”Bitch! Ive been looking for you! Have you just been hiding and slacking off all this time? ”

She picked up a broom that leaned against the wall and tried to whack me with it.I dodged to the side and made up a distraction.

”Shawns looking for you.Somethings wrong with the suit, I think. ”

The she-wolf immediately stopped in her tracks and glared at me.

”Why didn you say so? If this impacts the business, you
e going to suffer for it! ” She dropped the broom and scolded me a little more before leaving me alone.

”Prince Rufus is coming to the ceremony today.Get out of here and help with the preparations! If I catch you slacking off again, I will break your legs! ”

When I heard that Prince Rufus was coming today, I got an idea.Maybe I could make an appeal to him.I hurried to the banquet hall, hoping I could get a glimpse of him.

Unfortunately, the guards stopped me at the entrance, saying that slaves were not allowed to enter.I decided to hide in the corner and wait there instead.

Not so far away, several she-wolves who were going to the ceremony were gossiping.

”I heard that Prince Rufus is a lustful and bloodthirsty tyrant.One time, he took a female slave to bed and then tortured her to death that same night! ”

”Oh, I heard that story too! Apparently, hes powerful, but very heartless.Even the lycan king couldn do anything about him. ”

”You know, I heard that it was the lycan king who was supposed to come today, but it just so happened that Prince Rufus was passing by this way on his way back, so hes the one attending instead. ”

”What a pity! I wanted to see the lycan king with my own eyes.It would have been better to have Prince Richard here.Hes the gentle and approachable one, so Ive heard.Why did it have to be the scary Prince Rufus? ”

”Shh, keep your voice down! What if Prince Rufus showed up while you were saying that? Do you want to die? ”

The she-wolves cautiously looked around with guilty expressions.When they saw me _ staring, they immediately frowned and cursed.

”Hey, bitch! What are you looking at? ”

”Are you even allowed to be here? Get out of our sight! I rolled my eyes and ignored them, turning around.That kind of attitude was nothing new to me.But their conversation had me worried.It seemed that Prince Rufus was not a good man at all.He sounded just like Shawn, who was disgusting and had no regard for other peoples lives.Would such a man have the patience to listen to me about my mothers story? Obviously not.I sighed helplessly, throwing away the idea of appealing to him.Just when I was about to leave, several werewolves surrounded me.

”What do you want? ” I cautiously asked.

I vigilantly looked at them and stepped back, but I didn look behind me.I felt a quick gust of wind before feeling a sharp pain on the back of my head.

Right after that, my consciousness fell into darkness.

Shawns POV:

The ceremony was about to begin.I was dressed expensively and looked over at the busy werewolves.I was in a great mood.

The feeling of power and status exhilarated me.

While I crossed my legs and hummed a song, Mateo appeared in clothes that looked more exquisite and luxurious than mine.

He swaggered towards me, surrounded by his several attendants.

My heart sank instantly.

This old man was just a Gamma, but today he looked and acted like he was much more than that.

People who came to this event clueless might even think that he was the one who was taking the Alpha position.

”Stop slouching. ” Mateo looked at me in disdain.

I got up and stood up straight.

”Good day. ”

”From today on, you will be the Alpha.I only hope you can do your job well and not let anything distract you from that. ” Mateo patted me on the shoulder.

”You must remember that we werewolves have to value our origins and be grateful for the help.Never forget who helped keep our pack alive and prosperous, and of course who gave you the chance to become an Alpha today. ”

There was a lot of meaning behind Mateos words.

He was obviously warning me not to attempt to undo all the control he had worked so hard to attain.

”Yes.I will always remember your kindness and repay it with my life.Don worry.I cannot take away what is not mine. ” I smiled.

But deep inside, my heart was disgusted.

The Alpha position was always supposed to be mine in the first place.

Sooner or later, I would have to get rid of Mateo and take back everything that truly belonged to me.

”Good.Don even think of playing any tricks.I am watching you. ” Mateo smiled back.

I nodded politely, keeping this scene as harmonious as possible.

Satisfied, he then left.

Once he was gone, I couldn hold in my anger anymore and kicked over a trash can.

Of course, Mateo wouldn forget to embarrass me on such an important occasion.

He clearly did not take me seriously.

If that was what he thought, then I would show him that this ”puppet ” could fight back too.

At this moment, my subordinate carefully came forward.I plopped down in a chair and huffed in annoyance, ”What is it? ”

”We have successfully caught Sylvia, ” he reported to me in a low voice.

”Nice work. ” I said excitedly.

”Now strip Sylvia naked and leave her in the room prepared for Prince Rufus. ”

Although she was a lowly slave, Sylvia was still a beautiful girl.

Giving her as a gift to the prince would not only give him a good impression of me, but that damn she-wolf would also learn her lesson.

Imagining this plan in my head was enough to put me in a better mood.

”But sir, aren you going to sleep with her first? Sylvia is probably still a virgin.It must be a wonderful experience. ”

The subordinate smiled obscenely, but was careful not to maintain eye contact with me.

”You idiot! Why would I give the prince a used gift? Do you want to die? ” I slapped the back of his head.

Although, I had to admit I was a little worried.

What if the prince did to Sylvia what he did to that slave girl before and tortured her to death? If that happened, then I wouldn be able to have my turn with her anymore.

”Sir, Prince Rufus is here. ”

The subordinate gently tapped my arm, jolting me out of my thoughts.

I looked ahead and saw the man himself, Prince Rufus Duncan, at the entrance of the banquet hall.

He wore a silver suit, most likely customized to fit him perfectly.

His facial features were handsome, but cold enough to make everyone around him flinch whenever he moved.

Some werewolves were just born to be kings, and Rufus was definitely one of them.

”Prince Rufus, Im so glad you could make it.I am Shawn Gibson, the future Alpha of the Black Moon Pack. ”

I strode forward and spoke in a flattering manner.

But Rufus didn even reply.He just coldly glanced at me.In his eyes, I was probably no different from any other ordinary werewolf in this room.

Smiling awkwardly, I reached out my hand and pointed him to a direction.

”You must be tired after your journey.Please, have a seat. ”

Other than giving a speech and becoming the new Alpha, it seemed that this banquet also became an opportunity for me to try and please Rufus.

Still, he didn say much no matter what I tried.It was difficult to even get close to him.

But although he was acting indifferent now, I still had to do my best in flattering him.I was willing to do anything for power.

When the banquet was about to come to an end, I walked up to him with bright eyes.

”Prince Rufus, I have prepared a room for you that I think you will like.I have left a small gift there for you. ” I spoke ambiguously in a low voice and winked, hoping he would understand what I was implying.

Seeing that he still wasn going to respond, I said, ”Well, I hope you have a great night. ”
