"Mate" my wolf whispered

I've finally found my soulmate. Our eyes locked in a steady eye contact. It seemed like time had stopped....as if everything was in slow motion. We stared at each other for what seemed like forever.

"Uh do you guys know each other or something?" Rachel asked

"No, she just...she- she looks familiar" he said still staring at me

Rachel rolled her eyes and mumbled "I'm all dressed up yet she's the one who looks familiar"

"Alright let’s eat then" my mom said

We all sat down at the table. My mouth almost watered at the sight of food. I can't remember the last time I ate a proper meal. I wish visitors could be coming over more often. It gives me a chance to eat.

Of course, my dad wants to seem like a good person in front of the guests. That's the only reason why I'm here.

Rachel sat beside Alpha Damien while I sat across them.

Alpha Damien and my dad started discussing about pack matters. Every now and then we would glance at each other and I would feel butterflies in my stomach at the sight of him but he always looked away. I became a little scared.

Did he not want me?

Does he think I'm ugly?

Does he prefer my sister?

Am I dressed wrongly?

Am I not up to his expectations?

Am I below his standards?

I began to think about all these questions.
