Rejected1: Fall For The Rise

Rejected1: Fall For The Rise

Rejection Accepted

Our eyes met the moment I entered the party, a surge of heat taking over as a hollow void formed in my stomach.

'Other Half'

'I know' I whispered to my wolf.

Taking notice of me everyone turned from whomever they were talking to congratulate me.

"Thank you," I said in return with a nod and a smile.

We kept eye contact as he moved backward slowly exiting the party hall. I followed him, my heart pounding and nerves tightening.

This is it, the moment of decision after years of contemplation.

He came to a stop in the darkened hallway of Alpha quarters knowing no one was around, his back turned to me and I was edging to see his face, to know what he is thinking.

"I, Kyle Evans reject you, Andrew Clauss as my mate."

And suddenly everything came to a still, the heart, the nerves, everything.

The pain erupted making me stumble back a few steps, it made me gasp as the air seem to shorten around me.

I looked at him with my vision blurring his head turned to sideways slightly.

"Why am I not surprised? Something's never change,

Rejection Accepted. I, Andrew Clauss accept your rejection."

A boom that's what it sounded like to me and I knew that our fates have been sealed.

Kyle staggered from where he was standing taking the support of the wall the effects of rejection taking a pull on him too. But he had made sure I wouldn't be the one giving him support, turning around I decided to leave already having the present for my birthday.

But he needs to know that I am not weak, not anymore.

"And Kyle..." he turned slightly to look at me "I want to thank you for rejecting me first because if you haven't done it then I would have. I wouldn't want someone like you as my mate. You are worthless and I hope you know that." He growled at my words and took a threatening step towards me even though he was clearly in pain.

I smirked at him before turning and leaving our birthday party. His birthday was a couple of days earlier but we have always celebrated it together or at least used to. I started walking out of the packhouse with heavy and loud footsteps, the tears becoming too much to hold back threatening to spill out.

People were blocking me to congratulate or looking weird at my supposedly red face.

As soon as I stepped out of the building in the darkness of the night it became too much for me to hold back the tears.

I drove all the way back to my house with blurry vision, doing my best to avoid a car crash. I swerved my car around the other cars on the road. The drivers were yelling profanities at me but my mind was replaying the same scene and words from earlier.

Why did he do that? I'm his mate for god's sake and he's an alpha, he should feel the pain most so then why? Was I not good for him? Was I not enough? Why'd he rejected me when we meant the whole world to each other?

Aside from all personal reasons, he needs me for his pack. In my absence, his pack will become weak and more vulnerable. Didn't he think all about that?

Parking my car in the driveway of my house I wiped the tears. Getting out of the car I locked it up before trudging up to my main porch of a dark and silent house. I live alone though I wouldn't be if my mate had accepted me. My parents died in a car accident when I was a kid. The Alpha took me in and treated me like his own child and that's how I began to know Kyle more.

We never got along in the beginning as total opposites. He was a serious, introvert guy and has a good sense of humor there I was more of a social butterfly with a big social life, of course, it changed as we grew up. It was a silent agreement but we both decided to not cross paths and stay away from each other, at least at school. It wasn't until quite later when we began our friendship.

Walking into the house I was met with dead silence as some images of me with my parents played in front of my eyes. They are not very clear since I was fairly young and some are just my wishful thinking but they are my only support here aside from my human relatives who live in California. They're all nice and are from my mom's side, my mum was a human too but when she was mated to my father and came to live in a pack with her family's permission he turned her into one of us. The primary reason was the fear of me turning out human, so they did not want to take any chances.

I walked to the kitchen and threw my key on the counter as I left for the side bathroom near the stairs.

Opening the door I walked to the basin and splashed some cold water on my face to wake me up from the nightmare that just happened. But when I looked up at the mirror I was struck hard with the reality of the situation. In front of me was the same face I saw this morning, the same hair, same eyes, same lips but the only difference was that the shine of my eyes and the gleam of my face that I had already lost some time ago was worsened by a dull sick look.

The bitterness in my eyes increased as more tears came flowing out. My mind is a blur of pain and disbelief that I am a rejected wolf now, his rejected. The pain was always there and it was mine only till now but today it has increased so much that even my wolf is quite and suffering.

I closed my eyes as I imagined him in my mind.

'Hey! Gracia, aren't you gonna say something about this?' I gave a slightly bitter chuckle at that. He always had something to say about everything but I guess this is serious enough to shut him up.

The only answer I got from him is a painful low whine.

'I understand bud.' I imagined myself caressing him slowly.

I genuinely have no idea what he is feeling right now. There is a difference in the mating bond with humans and our wolf partners. Despite the situation, our wolves are bound and readily accept their mates but that's not the case with our human forms. Having control of our feelings and our conscious we decide who to choose. Simply us humans are not bound as much by the mating bond as our wolves. Fortunately, In most cases, the human and wolf's destined partner is the same but sometimes they don't, though these cases are rare.

Both of our wolves are going through the worst because of us their human partners but there's nothing I could do about it. He rejected me first, he had the chance to undo his mistakes but he lost this one too and surely he is going to pay for it.

As an alpha wolf, his wolf is more powerful than other wolves and has gotten more control over him than he does. If his wolf decided to go rogue or kill himself then he could do nothing about it. However, where being a rogue is terrible, the dying of a wolf is worst. Especially for an Alpha because when his wolf dies as his mate so will eventually mine. We'll both become regular humans and will probably be banished from the pack to live simple human lives. 

Then again it's never as simple for these humans are basically dead bodies. Without our destined mates and wolf partners we are nothing more than zombies, a body without a soul and often are relieved of their painful lives.

These thoughts scare me to my core. I have to do something. I can't let my wolf die at any cost. He is the only one left to me. My only companion and life support. I can't let anything happen to him but since I am rejected I really don't know what to do.

Sighing and feeling defeated from all sides I turned off the tap and walked out of the bathroom shutting the door behind me. Walking to my room which was my parent's room before, I looked at the door next to it when an idea clicked to me.

My dad's library, of course, my dad had a thing for collecting books that are rare and old about our species history and details I am sure he must be having some book explaining this situation. I stepped up the stairs to the attic where all my dad's office things are kept including his huge collection of supernatural-related books.

'Maybe, maybe I can save you, Gracia'
