BENEATH HER DARKNESS: The Alpha’s Little Demon

Chapter 18 – Half Breed


I knew I would get into trouble for attempting to kiss the Alpha but I couldn’t help it. He was too s*e*xy, and those plump lips had been tempting me since last night. But I didn’t mean to do that. It was too late when I realized what I had done.

“I’m sorry, Alpha.” I really messed up this time.

My hands were clutching his shirt, and I shouldn’t be doing this as well, but the kiss we shared made my knees buckle, and I was afraid that if he let me go, I might fall on my a*s*s.

“I want to hear those words again later when I punish you for being too aggressive in public.” His breath fanned against the skin at the back of my ear, and instead of instilling fear, his words. sent shivers of ple@sure down my spine and down to my c0re.

Why does that threat sound so s*e*xy? I was hoping he meant the punishment I was envisioning. Because if that was it, I was all in for it.

“Let go of me now…” He whispered just enough for me to hear.

I gulped, embarra*s*sed to be asked off. I loosened my hold on his shirt and moved my body away just in time for me to hear footsteps approaching. I turned my body around and came face-to-face with a female approaching us.

The female had long, straight blonde hair. She was beautiful, and I just let my eyes roam around her features. She was tall with a lean body but had perfect curves in all the right places. She was wearing a tight training suit, and I felt embarra*s*sed to be wearing a coat, and underneath it was just a loose shirt. I would look like a peasant beside her. But then I remembered who I was.

“Alpha,” She smiled at him before lowering her head to him. I didn’t hear any response or movement from Alpha Stone behind me. And I suddenly felt jealous. Did he smile at her or maybe wink at her? I wanted to look back, but I didn’t want to see if that was the case.

“Laira, I believed Collin had given you instructions on what to do with her.”

“Yes, Alpha. I’ll take care of her.”

“Good. Not a word about her except the one I discussed with Collin.”

“Yes, Alpha. Not a word.” I just listened to their conversation, and all the while, my heart panged with jealousy. The female looked friendly and nice, and it was making me insecure.

“Lucy…” Alpha Stone’s voice made me snap my head back to look at him.

“Yes, Alpha?”

“Behave. I don’t want to hear any news from Laira. Control your mouth around others.” I chewed my bottom lip, not really liking to be scolded like a kid. “I’ll go now.”

I just nodded my head, but his next action caught me off guard. He leaned forward, and his hand went to the back of my head, holding me in place as he pressed a gentle kiss on my forehead, and my heart fluttered in an instant. And then he was gone. Or maybe I spaced out and didn’t see him walk away.

“Lucy, right?” The female’s voice snapped me out of my reverie. I turned my body around and faced her, forcing a smile to curl on my lips. “Yes, Lucy.”

She extended a hand before a warm smile touched her lips. “Laira, Beta Collin’s mate. Mystic Pack’s Beta Female.”

I took her hand as a wide grin formed on my lips. I felt a big burden lifted from my shoulders. She’s mated, and not just mated, she’s mated to the Alpha’s Beta.

“Nice to meet you, Laira. I’m Lucy, the Omega…”

“Ssshs… You mean the Alpha’s girlfriend?

“I guess so,” I chuckled, not knowing how to respond.

“Well, let’s get you something suitable to wear first. I didn’t know he would let you train on your first day here, so I just gave you simple clothes, but I prepared training clothes you can choose from. Shall we?” I nodded my head and followed after her, but she slowed down and walked beside me instead.

“It is actually the Gamma Female that should a*s*sist you with training, but it’s her son’s first day at school, so they were given time off today so they could go with him. But they’ll be back around lunchtime.”

“I’m sorry, I was taking your time.”

“No, don’t think like that. I was actually eager to meet you. Collin told me so much about you.”

“I hope they were nice things. I don’t think your mate likes me.” Oops, my tongue slipped again.

“What made you think that? He actually liked you for the Alpha. He told me what happened with you and Beast.”

“Ohhh… But Beast is adorable. It’s easy to like him.”

“Hmmm… Not for us.” She let out a sigh as we entered the female locker room.

“Females, if you have no business being here at the moment, I want privacy please.” She said it in an authoritative but friendly tone, and all six females bowed and exited the locker room immediately, closing the door behind them.

“So where are we?” She asked as she pulled out a duffel bag and zipped it open.

“Beast? Why don’t you like him?” I asked as I helped her pull out training clothes from the bag.

“It’s the other way around. He doesn’t like us. The Alpha rarely shifts nowadays, because Beast would attack anyone. nearby, especially mated wolves. He doesn’t care if it’s a she-wolf or not.”

“Oh, no wonder the Alpha and Beta Collin told me to run when he shifted.”

“But he seemed smitten by you.’

“Maybe he knows he will get nothing from me if he chooses to break my bones. She chuckled as she motioned for me to pick and try those clothes.

“Have you done any training before?”

If we counted walking on fire, dodging fireballs, and flying with wings as training, then I did. I also strengthened my arms with the morning star hammer and my legs with fire and spiked hurdles, so yes, I think I had experience with hard -c0re training.

“No,” I answered while biting my lower lip, trying to make sure I looked embarra*s*sed.

“No worries, we’ll just start with the basics then.”

“Why do I have to train? Is your pack always under attack?”

“No. I don’t think we’ve been attacked for decades. From Alpha Aurelius to Alpha Audrius to Alpha Stone now, no one dared to touch this pack.”

“And why do I have to train? Is he going to make me one of his female warriors? Because I swear I’ll be useless.”

Laira giggled at my words before she collected her hair and tied it into a tight pony. “He wanted your wolf out. And I doubt he’ll put you in the middle of the battle. He’ll probably wrap you around his waist if we get attacked.”

Her last statement made my heart flutter, but I didn’t want to give out my real emotions at the moment. I wanted more information about my wolf.

“So training helps the wolf out?”

“Most of the time, yes. The Alpha said you are half-human. That’s why your wolf is taking a long time to come out.”

“So if you’re half-breed, the wolf comes out later?”

“Not all cases are because of the half breed. Sometimes, the body just can’t handle the wolves yet. It’s the reason why Alpha Blood Males or the Alpha Heir would usually shift at a younger age, like 14 or 15 years old, because their wolves are already strong by the time they are born. Some Omegas take longer time because… they are of weaker rank. If you throw in human blood, it makes your body weaker. And if the human blood is strong, it could take more years for the wolf to gain its full strength.”

“Oh, so the stronger the other bloodline, whether human, vampire, or witch blood, makes it harder for the wolf to come out.” 1

“And sometimes it doesn’t come out.”


“Well, for humans, it takes time. On the other hand, vampires, witches, and other supernatural species are rarely mixed with wolves, and when they do, the body sometimes chooses whether they will grow up to be wolves, vampires, or witches, not both. Am I confusing you? I don’t have a personal experience, that was just what I heard.”

“No. I understood perfectly!” I smiled at her, although my heart began beating erratically. That was why my father wanted me to go through the cleansing ritual when I turned eighteen. He wanted to make me a full-blood demon.

“So how do you make yourself a full blood wolf if you don’t want the other side?”

“I don’t know, to be honest. It’s a rare case, or maybe just a myth. I never met half-breeds aside from half-humans. So… I’m not sure.”

“That makes sense. Maybe it’s just a myth.” I smiled at her before taking the ponytail she handed to me and began fixing and tying my hair into a high pony.

“I guess you’re ready. We’ll take it slow today.”

“Okay. Thank you.”

“Just enough to build your stamina so you can keep up with the Alpha.” She winked at me, a teasing smile on her face as she walked past me and motioned for me to follow her.

I smiled despite myself. I was sure that even without this training, I could keep up with the Alpha. The question was, could Alpha Stone keep up with me?

I followed Laira out of the locker room and into the training hall. I think I already like her. I was just hoping the other females wouldn’t make my life hard because I never really got along with females my age at the orphanage or at the school I attended before I finally quit.

I didn’t finish school because of some mean girls who thought they ruled the world. I knew I had to quit or I might end up wasting my energy and power on them when they were not even worth it. So, honestly, I didn’t know how to make friends.

Almost everyone in the demon world was a male. She-demons were a rarity, especially the royal ones. My father had one daughter and thousands of sons. So imagine the life I had down there, so making friends would be a big challenge. But I was up for it if that meant I could stay here longer.
