BENEATH HER DARKNESS: The Alpha’s Little Demon

Chapter 46 – Wolf or Not?


“More?” I had just finished a cup of bitter tea, and Lena gave me another one.

“Yes, and there’s another one after.” She chuckled before she sipped the tea in her own cup.

“Oh Goddess, are you secretly trying to K*ll me? Can I have what you’re drinking? That one smells nice, while this one…”

“Do you want your wolf out or not?” Laira asked, her brows hiking up, but I could see she was suppressing a smile from crossing her face.

“Drink that one and the last one, and I’ll give you a chocolate cake. Dark chocolate that melts in your mouth… Hmmm…” Lena was teasing me, as she s*cked on the small spoon, she used to stir her tea, and she was doing it as if it were something else, she was s*cking.

I rolled my eyes and crossed my arms against my chest like a spoiled kid while my lips extended into a pout. “Not fair. Three cups of tea from hell for just a slice of cake.”

Lena was about to say something, but she was cut off by another voice. “Is Lucy complaining?”

The females straightened up from their seats and both shook their heads. Lena smiled at Alpha Stone before defending me. “She just finished the first one and is about to drink the second one.”

The Alpha didn’t say anything but crossed his arms against his chest before leaning on the door frame, his eyes fixated on mine with a stoic expression on his face. I glared at him, but he was not affected. Of course, he just told me he was not scared of me using my fire power against him.

“I’m waiting.”

“Have you tasted this? How about you drink one cup and I’ll drink two without complaining?” I told him in a very bratty manner that I regretted it immediately. I forgot Laira and Lena were around, and I didn’t want them to think I had an att*itude. Well, I do, specifically just for the Alpha.

“Lena, give me a cup of her tea.” He said it in a bored tone.

My eyes widened. Wrong move, girl. This Alpha never backed down to anything. Lena poured tea into his cup and handed it to him.

Adan raised his cup in the air as if saluting me before he drank it in one gulp without taking his eyes off me. If he didn’t like how it tasted, I had no idea. His face was still wearing the same expression as earlier.

“Your turn,” he said before giving the cup back to Lena.

I swallowed hard. I would make him pay for this tonight. I grabbed the cup and pinched my nose before drinking the tea. It took a while before I was able to finish it, but all this time, Adan’s eyes never left mine.

“Done.” I feigned a gag as I placed the

cup back on the table before beaming at him, hoping he forgot I needed to take another cup.

“Next one.”

“Can I take it later?”

“No. Drink it and I’ll take you somewhere.”

“Somewhere? Like a date?” I asked, and I could see the two females trying not to smile at my excitement.

“You can call it whatever you want. Now drink up.”

“I’ll drink it after we come back.”

“Lucy!” His voice was slightly higher.

“I can still taste the aftertaste of the tea, and if I push more, I might end up vomiting.

“Then vomit it.”

“You’re impossible!”

“I know. Deal with it and hurry up! I don’t have all day, princess.”


If I didn’t want my wolf to come out, I would not drink that awful tea made up of leaves and roots that I had never seen in my whole life. I knew I was being bratty, but it tasted bad. And it wasn’t helping that Adan was being grumpy. He hadn’t smiled at me since he watched me drink that tea up until now when we were treading the forest grounds for our ‘date.’

Yeah, so much for hoping that he would take me out for a date. It looked like he would teach me how to hunt. We’d been walking for a long time now, and I had no idea where we were headed because he refused to tell me.

“Are you tired now?” He asked as he stopped on his track and looked at me.

“Wow! You finally decided to open your mouth.”

“Are you tired now?” he repeated.

“Yes. How long have we been walking.”

“Almost an hour.”

“Wow! Seriously, and you’ve been ignoring me for one hour now.”

“Take off your necklace.”

“No way.”

“Fine. I brought you here so we could learn how to control your fire. Sooner or later, you might need to use your wings to take you out of a bad situation, but if you don’t know how to control your fire, you might end up hurting someone in the process.”

“I don’t understand. I don’t need to use my wings. I can live as an ordinary human too.”

“We’re doing this for your protection. If the day comes that you need to go, and the easiest way out is to fly, you need to be able to control your power to make sure you don’t destroy and hurt anyone in my territory.”

“I’m sorry. I have no intentions of hurting anyone.”

“I know. That’s why I want you to control your emotions. You told me if you get overwhelmed, the fire just pops out. So now let’s try all emotions and see where it takes us. I want to know if there’s a way you can control it.”

“I’m not sure this is a good idea.”

“You can’t be scared of your own power. You need to utilize it to protect yourself, but if you can’t control it, it won’t save you and the people around you.” I bit my bottom lip, my eyes staring at his. I was trying to read him, but he was impossible to read at the moment.

“If somebody grabs that necklace from you, what will your reaction be? You’ll burn the person who took it as well as everyone around you? Including me? Including Lena and Laira? And then your father will appear out of nowhere.”

My hands reached for my necklace as I slipped them off my head and handed it to him. “What if we summoned my father accidentally while practicing?”

“We’ll try not to. We can’t be scared all the time. I want to protect you, Lucy, and I will protect you as much as I can. But I can only do so much. If I can’t anymore, you need to protect yourself. Fly away from here without worrying that you will accidentally summon fire or that he can. track you again. Having the capacity to control your power means having the chance to live normally without being scared.” I nodded my head. Everything was starting to be clearer now.

“Good, I will move backward. Tell me if you can’t sense the stone anymore. Then we’ll try all of them, but I need a signal if you feel a burn coming out so I can come back to you.”

“I will tell you to stop.”

“Let’s start then.”

My eyes watered as I nodded my head. Adan was doing so much for me. He could ask either his Beta or Gamma to do this, but he was willing to take a day off to train me on my emotions.

“Do you still feel it?” I nodded my head, and he began stepping back again.

“Stop. I can’t sense it anymore.”

“Okay. Now, look at me. Tomorrow I will be leaving, and it might take another 5-7 days before I can come home.”

“You’re bluffing.”

“I’m not.’

“You’re just trying to irritate me.” My eyes narrowed at him.

“I am. That’s why I decided to tell you now.”

“Where are you going?”

“You don’t need to know.”

“I want to.”

“Well, you can’t.”

“Tell me.”

“There’s a female Pops arranged for me.

Well, he had that arranged before I met you, and I totally forgot about it, so I can’t cancel it now. But you don’t have to worry. I will just go there and spend days with her, but you just need to relax. I will still come home to you.” His eyes were all over me and my surroundings, but he was not meeting my eyes.

“Spend days with her? What the f*uc*k? Can I come?”

“No. What will you do there?” He chuckled as if my request was weird.

“To make sure you don’t f*uc*k her!”

“Wait, we have never talked about exclusivity. I can still f*uc*k…” He was talking nonchalantly, and I felt my chest heaving.

What happened to him saying I was his? He can go and f*uc*k around while I wait for him to come home? I thought we were past the buyer-Omega stage by now.

“Do you feel the burn?”

“Soon!” I snapped at him.

“Control it.” His voice was authoritative, and it put me back on track. I closed my eyes and controlled my breathing.

“Step forward if you feel the burn!”

“I want to burn you!”

“Are you angry?”

“Angry is an understatement.”

“You want to K*ll me!”

“No…” My answer was almost inaudible.

“Are you jealous?”

“No!” I closed my eyes. trying to control my emotions.

“You’re doing a good job holding your anger. How’s the fire doing?”

“Just circling in my head.”

“Usually what do you see before the fire comes out?”

“Red. All red.”

“Do you see some red now?”


“Good girl. You said that when you’re angry or upset, you just shoot fire without thinking.”


“Why didn’t it come out?”

“You told me to control it.”

“And what did you do to control it?”

“I told the fire to stay still.”

“Good girl.”

‘Lucy… can you hear me?’ My eyes snapped open. Someone was trying to reach out.

“Now, let’s try again. This female I’m going to visit…”

“Stop!” I blurted it out because he spoke at the same time as the voice in my head. Panic crossed Adan’s face as he dashed forward, and the connection in my head snapped.

“No! No!” I shrieked.

“Are you okay? Did the fire…”

“No, it’s not the fire! Go away!” I placed my hands on his chest and pushed him, but he wasn’t budging.

“Lucy! What’s going on?”

“Does Beast speak to you with a voice, like can he talk?”


“Someone talked to me. In my head!” My finger pointed at my temple.

“Your wolf?”

“I don’t know. But she knows my name.

A wide smile crept onto his lips. “Maybe the herbal tea worked.”

I shook my head. “And it’s the same voice. I heard in my head when I showed you, my wings. I thought I was hallucinating then. So, this is the second time. I’ve never taken off my necklace since I started wearing it, and the two times I did, I heard her.”

“Your necklace is stopping you from reaching her, or her from reaching you.”

I nodded my head too many times. “Do you think it’s my wolf?”

“It could be unless demons have another soul within you.”

“No, we don’t.” I bit my lip for a second before I added, “And I felt a connection. snap when you rushed forward.”

“I’m sorry, baby. I thought the fire was about to come out.”

I gave him a weak smile. “It’s okay, but can we try again? If it’s okay with you, I’d like to try without the necklace for a long time so don’t rile me up.
