Rufus POV:

I lazily sat on my chair.As I watched Shawn try to flatter me desperately, I couldn help but feel that all this was funny.

With a new Alpha like this, the Black Moon Pack seemed to be doomed.

Not only was he a fool, but he also seemed to have poor vision.

”I hope the arrangement Ive prepared for you will be satisfactory, Prince Rufus.If there is anything else youd like, please don hesitate to tell me.I will have it brought to you as soon as possible. ”

Shawn was still blabbering on about something.

I had never met a man more talkative than the usual woman.I rubbed my temples and felt a headache coming on.

”Another attack of that illness? Its not even evening yet, ” my wolf Omar asked.

”Im afraid it came early this time. ”

”Maybe we should leave now. ”

”No, I can still take it.Besides, if I leave now, itll just attract even more attention. ”

Every full moon, I would be attacked by the most painful and splitting headaches that would make me lose control of myself.

In order not to hurt anyone, I learned to just lock myself in my room whenever it was time.

I agreed to come to this ceremony in behalf of my father because I didn think I would have an early attack.

Nevertheless, I endured the pain as best as I could until the banquet was over.

By that time, my head felt like it was being pounded on by thousands of hammers all at the same time.

That primitive desire to destroy everything in my path was slowly making its way out of my body.

I had to control myself and stay rational until I could be alone.

But this nosy Alpha stayed beside me and decided to test the limit of my patience.

”Prince Rufus, let me accompany you myself. ” Shawn caught up to me.

I sighed and turned to him.

”Im sorry, but I would prefer to be alone for some peace and quiet. ” I tried to smile, but I was aware that my tone did not sound friendly at all.

Shawns face turned red as a tomato as he pursed his lips and covered his mouth, nodding vigorously.

”Please, go. ” I coldly glanced at him.

”Right away, Prince Rufus. ”

Shawn turned around and hurriedly left.

Once I finally sent Shawn away, I briskly walked to my room.I could barely hold the beast inside any longer.

Sylvias POV:

I woke up dazed, but the cold air blowing on my body was enough to sober me up quickly.I tried to get up, only to realize I couldn move.

My hands and feet had been tied to the frame of this huge bed, and I was completely naked.

There was even something stuffed in my mouth that muffled every sound that came out of it.

What was happening? I turned my head to observe my surroundings.

I was in a room I had never seen before with no one else around.I tried to break myself free, but the ropes just got tighter and tighter around my wrists.I cried and roared, hoping to send out a distress signal to anyone nearby.

”Shut up! ” A man outside banged on the door and scolded me.

”What a pity. That chick seemed so attractive! ” Another mans voice sounded from beyond the door.

I craned my neck higher, trying to hear what they were talking about.

”Pity? She just looks like any other seductress, to be played with by many men sooner or later. ”

”If she wasn sent to Prince Rufus, we could have had the chance to have a go at her.Even just thinking of her body turns me on! ”

I frowned, disgusted by how they talked about me.

”There is no chance that we can get such a good thing. ” One of them gloated.

”Well, shes a gift from our new Alpha, and has already been sent to Prince Rufus bed.I heard the prince is vicious.That girl probably won even make it through tonight. ” I realized the two men were Shawns guards.

It seemed that Shawn was taking revenge on me for rejecting him as my mate! Of course, he would be absolutely despicable with it! I groaned, but the sound was simply muffled.

I tried to free myself again from the ropes, but the friction only ended up burning the skin off of my wrists.

At this time, I heard a third voice come from outside.It was deep and somehow magnetic.

”You may leave.I don need any guards around. ”

”Yes, Prince Rufus. ”

It was him! Prince Rufus! My pupils shrank and I looked around the room in panic, trying to find a way to escape.

But how could I escape if I couldn even move? I was left with no choice.

Rufus POV:

When I got to my room, I immediately dismissed the guards at the door.As I turned the knob, my nose was filled with a faint scent that stopped me in my tracks.Something was wrong.It seemed like there was someone else in my room.

Judging by the scent, it was a she-wolf.

It suddenly occurred to me what Shawn had been implying to me all this time.

He wished me a great night with an ambiguous smile.

That idiot! Was he trying to win me over in this way? What an arrogant move! I knew that the moment I stepped into this room, I would no longer be able to restrain my destructive desires.

That she-wolf would be torn to pieces in no time.I was not in the mood to play Shawns game, so I just turned around and was going to leave.

But then that faint scent filled my nose again.

This time, I could smell it clearly.It smelled like a sweet orchid that had just freshly bloomed, instantly washing away the manic desires in my head.Gradually, I felt my sanity return.I couldn help turning back around at the door.

The fragrance was coming from inside.

That scent…

”Go, Rufus! Its our mate! ” Omar exclaimed in my mind with excitement.

Sylvias POV:

As the door creaked open, I heard footsteps in the room getting closer.I was so nervous I could almost feel the blood rushing through my veins.

But just when I was in despair, I suddenly smelled the fragrance of lily and jasmine.

What was going on? Was this my second mate already? I looked up, shocked.I saw the so-called cruel and cold blooded Prince Rufus, slowly walking towards me.

He didn turn on the light, so he was shrouded in darkness.

But under the moonlight, I could still feel him staring at me, like a beast lurking and observing its prey.

My body was trembling.I tried to curl up and cover my body in shame.

He stood in front of me and didn say anything.

I couldn tell if there were any expressions on his face either.

”Please, don touch me.I… ” My voice quivered and my tongue was tied.

I couldn finish my words.

Slowly, he bent down.

Even with just one movement, I could tell that he was raised in a noble and elegant home.

Who would have thought that this regal man was cruel and bloodthirsty on the inside? Sensing that his fingers were about to touch my body, I shut my eyes and couldn help crying.

I would much rather die right now than live with this shame.

Mother, please help me… But for some reason, I didn feel any pain that I was expecting.

Instead, I felt my wrists get freed from the ropes.I opened my eyes in shock.

He had untied me.

Without thinking twice, I got up and retreated backwards, trying to keep a distance from this dangerous lycan.

I kept walking back until I had hit a wall.I pressed myself against it and crossed my arms over my chest, looking at him with vigilance.

But as soon as I looked up, ! found a coat thrown at me and covered enough of my body.

My nose was filled with that cold, floral fragrance from the coat.

When I got back to my senses, I slipped the coat off of me and looked at him strangely.

”Put it on. ”

His tone was cold, but I didn feel any murderous hint to it.

Even though I could see why people would think his appearance was cold and ruthless, he actually seemed a little different.

He didn seem to be as cruel as I thought.

Was it because of our mate bond, perhaps? I obliged and put the coat back on, catching a whiff of that amazing mate scent again.

I bit my lip and saw him leaning towards me, but I didn feel I needed to be as vigilant anymore.

In fact, my heart even seemed expectant of something else.What was he going to say to me?
