Not Your Mate Anymore

Chapter 47- The Beginning Of The End

Josey's POV

"What if I turn them?" I ask looking at my mates. They were breathing heavily with their chest wounds still bleeding.

Arianna gasps as Hunter growls.

"I think we have enough hybrids in the werewolf world. You do understand that your children will be hybrids? Thus creating an entire new species without a realm to monitor it." Hunter says. The elder coughs and we all look at him.

"I don't mean to just insert myself in this conversation but I have to warn you. You are a deity, half celestial. Just like your mother, Kimberly. Your mates are earthly beings so if you turn them in to vampires, they will not be able to walk in the sun like you." The elder says to me.

I can't lose my mates, how will I survive this life without them? Why did I take this awful mission!?

"No offence...No offence Babe, but I don't want to be a vampire." Clayton says and a tear escapes my eye at his words.

"You are dying. If you die, I die! I can't have Chase without Clayton and I can't have Clayton without Chase. I need you both!" I say through sobs and frustration.

"I'd rather die than become a creature of the night. I am a proud lycan, I will die a proud one." Chase says to me and this surge of anger runs through me.

It was indeed coming from my vampire.

"You would rather leave me and die, leaving me to face this world alone and without your children to raise! I have to watch Elise raise her son to take over my pack. I would run around the world to be with you but you won't do the same for me." I say, defeated. My wolf was howling.

My heart was breaking.

"I know I brought this on our doorstep. I know this is partly my fault as it is my mother's, who has been quiet this whole time. I just want you, I need you here in this life with me. We still have so much to do and so much to face. This cannot be your end! I refuse." I say through sobs.

"Josey, no pack will follow a vampire leader. No pack will take in a vampire. You are different, you still walk in the day, seeming normal. Your mates won't have that at all." Cj says to me, his hand on my shoulder.

"Fine. Arianna save whoever, it's clear they don't want to live. They are grown men, they can decide for themselves but what I won't do, is sit here and watch one of them die." I say before leaving the room.

Mother follows me out and grabs my hand to stop me.

"Josey, I'm sorry. I know I have a lot to explain but it really is not that easy. I used that amulet on your father, to create the illusion of him being my mate. I can get inside people's heads but I can't create the mate bond like that. Only magic can do that and that's what I did. When we lived in human territory, I met your uncle Deacon. It was through him that I met your father, see Deacon is an alpha and a very loud and proud one, which could expose me so I could not date him but your father was just perfect. I know it sounds wrong but I did what I did to protect Sabrina. At that age, before I met your father or uncle, I was living in between earth and the heavenly, where I met my true mate. Hunter did not waste time and before I knew it, I was pregnant." Mother tells me.

"I thought you said you made him wait, friendzoned him." Sabrina says from behind us. We turn to face her.

"Yes but don't forget, a day on earth is ten years here. So I'd spend more time in the heavenly realm by just being gone for a day or two. Look all I'm saying is, I had to hide after people found out Hunter claimed me and your father was the perfect man for it. I do care about him but the mate bond was never real for me when I knew who my true mate was." Mother tells us and Sabrina chuckles.

"What about dad? Did he not have a mate? Did you not care that he could've had a normal shewolf who would've stuck around long enough?" Sabrina asks.

"At the time I did not care or even think about it." Mother says honestly, which surprised me.
