The Alpha and His Contract Luna (Lauren) novel Chapter 21


I woke up with a splitting headache. The room was completely unfamiliar and for a moment I started to panic. That’s before the scent hit me.

Every square inch of the room smelled like Sebastian. As I paid more attention to the room I noticed the décor screamed his personality. Dark colors. I wasn’t a fan of dark colors preferring vibrant colors but I liked the pallet shades used.

I stand up and everything tips on its axis. I pause for a while to get my equilibrium first. Once the dizziness passes I head towards the door that I assumed was the bathroom. It was already daytime, streams of sunlight penetrating through the curtains so I assumed everything happened the previous day.

“Blue?” I call her.

I check the bathroom and it was every woman’s dream. I was used to luxury given that Darren was an alpha but this level of luxury was beyond anything I could imagine. I could honestly get used to this. I can see myself relaxing in the luxurious bath with a glass of wine and a good book.

“Yes, Ren” she asks, shaking the fogginess from her mind.

“What happened yesterday, why did we lose control like that?”

The thought of not being in control of my actions scares the crap out of me. I should have been able to remain cool despite Miranda baiting me. I was always level headed but I don’t know what happened yesterday.

“You know what’s happening Ren. We’re losing control easily because we’re falling deeper into the darkness. We need to get Sebastian to mark us before it’s too late to do anything. We’re too close to snapping” she says in a somber voice.

She was right. I had a feeling but I didn’t want to admit it. The way the slightest provocation made me want to shred someone into pieces. Every thought when someone wrongs me turns into the need to bath in their blood. As in the case of the reporters.

I wash my face and brush my teeth with an extra toothbrush I found. My mind turned and twisted thinking of how I was going to approach Sebastian about this. Thinking of him makes me wonder how he was doing after the events of yesterday. With how cold the bed felt. How his scent was a day old means he hasn’t been to this room for some time.

It isn’t easy knowing that someone drugged and took advantage of you. For a man, that would be a hundred times worse. I didn’t know if he would allow me to offer him comfort but I was going to try.

With that thought firmly in place I walk out of the bathroom. Intending to go and find Sebastian. I get out just as the door to the room opens. I’m frozen, staring at Sebastian. He is not only covered in blood but he’s also completely naked.

“Sebastian?” I ask unsure of what to tell him.

I keep my eyes trained on his. Fighting my response to lower them. Even with all the gore covering him he was still a beautiful specimen to look at. The urge to touch him was completely out of place.

“Are you okay?” I add when he doesn’t answer. He just stares at me in that unnerving way he does. Making me shift from foot to foot. Utterly uncomfortable.

He nods. “Yes, I'm just from hunting”

“Okay then, we need to talk but can you please cover up?” I say motioning to his body with my hands.

I see a spark. The spark that I thought he had lost yesterday when that bitch announced what she had done.

“Why? Do I make you uncomfortable?” he asks with a hint of a smirk.

We are werewolves and we are used to nudity but for some reason his was making me squirm in an uncomfortable way. Not even with Darren or any other man have I ever been this uncomfortable.

I whisper, looking anywhere else but him. “Yes”

I feel rather than see him move. I was relieved that he was finally getting some clothes on but the relief quickly turns to panic when he comes and stands inches from me. I look up at him, seeing something swim in their depths but I can’t quite figure out what it is.

“And why is that Red? Why do I make you uncomfortable when you’ve probably seen hundreds of naked men especially during pack hunts?”

I don’t answer. This close to him I can feel his scorching body heat. I want to push him back but I also didn’t want to put my hands on his bare chest. I don’t know what I would do once I feel his skin underneath my palms.

I inhale sharply. The scent of animal blood hits me and I’m grateful that he was hunting animals and not people.

He pushes me back till I hit the door behind me. Then proceeds to cage me with his hands on either side of me. He bends his head towards me, his face dangerously close to mine. His lips are just inches away. If I tipped my head up it would bring our mouths together. For a moment I had the absurd idea that I wouldn’t mind him kissing me. Or taking me.
