I decided to get ready. It was 4pm and I had to be ready by 7pm as Damon will be here to pick us up. I wanted to really enjoy getting dolled up and pampering myself.
My sister called in reinforcements too. We had a make up artist, beauticians to wax those brows and legs. We had hairstylists come in. Even my brother got a dope ass haircut. We got massages and drank champagne while we let our glam squad make some magic.
When mom got home she joined in too. My grandfather and dad just laughed at us and went about their business.
I opted for red nails seeing as my dress was red. Josey went white and Remi too. It was almost 7pm and we were all ready. I said this before and I'll say it again, Josey looks like a Greek goddess. She looks so beautiful and angelic we almost cried. She wore her white gown with strap heels. She styled her hair in a cute messy bun and light make up.
Like an angel...
Remi decided to wear an emerald green dress. It hugged her perfectly and was flowy going all the way down. She pairs it with emerald earrings and gold strap heels.
I wore a red dress and paired it with my black stilettos. I felt like a powerful woman about to walk the golden globe red carpet.
My little Cj was a grown man tonight in his tuxedo. It fit him perfectly. You'd swear he was older if we were to judge on his height alone. He needs to stop growing this one.
When we walked out to show my dad and grandfather our outfits, they were speechless. My dad obviously fanning over mom but he also mumbled something about us growing up too fast. We took family photos and shared a drink before we had to go.
Mom and dad left first with grandpa and we stayed behind waiting on Damon. He finally arrived at 7h15 running into the house to apologize.
He told us he's been working like crazy but we will make it on time. I was more worried about the traffic as neighboring packs won't be sleeping at Green Forrest so the amount of cars driving to the venue might be a crazy amount of cars. Damon assured me we will make it on time.
When we drove into pack territory it was 7h45 already and I was about to start sweating. I didn't want to rush Damon because I'm sure Max was shouting all mother of swear words at him through the mind link.
We all notice he drove past the pack house...
"Where are we going Damon? Isn't the ball held at the pack house?" Josey asked what we were all wondering.
"Not anymore. Maximus built a private guesthouse with a ballroom for such occasions. These parties can get crazy and loud so he built the new house to respect those that need the peace and quiet.” Damon said. How thoughtful of him.. I'll have to keep that in mind if I need to get away from everyone tonight. It could get overwhelming with my mate in the same room as me, add Max's mate in the mix and I'll get a headache.
We drove uphill seeing cute lanterns hanging on trees to illuminate the road. It looked majestic. When we got to the top we were all speechless. The venue was a beautiful glass house surrounded by greenery. It was absolutely breathtaking. A very big house. A very modern house. Max has really outdone himself here.
We got out of the car still taking the beautiful architecture in. There was a beautiful lake and dock to the left where benches where placed and lanterns hanging by the trees. Security everywhere and people running around making sure things were where they supposed to be.
I didn't even notice Max come out the house and stand in front of us. I was so mesmerized by the look of this house that he had to clear his throat to get my attention.
Boyyyyy He got it alright...
Max in a tuxedo should be illegal. This man is handsome. They need to put his face in the dictionary next to the words handsome, sexy and ridiculous.
He was ridiculously good looking. He wasn't even wearing his suit jacket but he made it work. I don't even care if he even wears one. How his tattoos sneak out onto his neck. Those muscles hugging the fabric of his shirt. I was probably drooling but at that moment, I didn't care.
Max is mighty fine.
I looked back into his eyes and I caught him drooling too. Boy was checking me out. So I did a little twirl for him and pout.
"So, how do I look Maximus?" I ask. Yes I'm fishing for a compliment.
"You look amazing Sabrina Kimberley Trent. You look absolutely beautiful” he says to me still taking me in. He walks towards me and takes my hand to kiss my knuckles.
“I'm a lucky man tonight. If I knew you'd come out looking like this, I wouldn't have rushed Damon. This was worth it Kim. You look perfect." he says.
With all the butterflies moving around in my stomach, the compliments Max was throwing out, I didn't notice Josey slip away to be with her mates or Cj go do Cj things. I was lost in his eyes and smooth talking ways.
"You clean up nice too alpha Maximus" I say coyly.
"Thank you. Besides, I couldn't have you outshine me” he jokes.
He pulls my hand gently, "Come. We have people to meet and greet." He says walking with me into the house.
I walk in to see Celine, my uncles bed mate playing the violin so beautifully alongside a man who played the grand piano. Waiters walking around with flutes filled with champagne. The atmosphere was enticing and I loved it.
The ballroom had white walls and a white podium. The decor was gold. They had a chocolate fountain set up, fondue fountain with sliced bread pieces on the side. All the food you can think of they made.
A fully stocked bar on each side of the ballroom and bartenders doing what they do best.
“I must say Maximus, you've really pulled it off" I say to him. He really pulled out all the stops tonight.
I saw my mom and dad laughing with uncle Deacon. Cj talking to Nicole about something. I think he has a crush on her. Cute.
Josey at the bar with her twin mates. Bella and Elise sitting with Tristan at the bar on the other side. Tristan looked distraught and I wish I could make him feel better. His wolf still saw Bella as his but his wolf also probably wants to kill the baby growing in her belly. His wolf will be jealous of the attention the baby will be getting and because the baby isn't his, his wolf won't feel anything for that baby. I just hope his human side feels different and Bella spends the rest of their lives making it up to him. She owes him that.
So many auras around the ballroom, the room felt static. 12 alphas in attendance and if you weren't used to this it would be intimidating.
The room was filled with so much power. Feeling all the alphas in one room. It was intense actually.
When there's so many alphas in one room, a fight almost always breaks out. It would be weird if it didn't. All wanting to prove they are more powerful than the other. It is the way of the wolf. I'm sure Max has his warriors keeping an eye on each alpha, some tend to let a wolf out from time to time. We all have tempers but alphas got the worst of it. It was bound to be an eventful evening...
We walked around greeting people and exchanging pleasantries. I made small talk here and there but I mostly let Max do the talking. Some
alphas are insane sexists, they will never acknowledge a female wolf or female at all. They believe the man speaks for himself and his mate. In their
packs, women are good for sex and cooking. These alphas make sure their mates are forever carrying a pup.
For instance Alpha Cane. His mate is on baby number 7 and she's ready to pop. Same time next year we'll probably see her pregnant again. Its
always the same story with men like him. It is their way but more and more women are finding mates in other packs which makes me wonder if the
moon goddess is punishing them for those exact ways they are so adamant to live by.
Alpha Cane can talk. He's been pleading Max to allow his make wolves to come to Green Forrest in search of their mates. Max would decline
mates if they have to endure such treatment. Knowing Max, he's probably afraid of the same thing which would result in the women fleeing Cane's pack and taking refuge back here at
