1: Chapter 1

AURORA

“Auroraaa! Get up, you lazy ass,” my best friend, Jade, screams at me, pulling the covers from my body.

“Go away, Jay. Shoo,” I say.

I hate when people wake me up! If I don’t get enough sleep, I’m a zombie. No one dares to talk to me because I may end up eating them, just like the Walking Dead!!

Lol, I’m kidding!

Suddenly, ice-cold water is poured on me.

How could she?!

I jerk up, freezing, and I see the devil, aka, my best friend, laughing like a hyena.

“I swear to God, Jay, I’m gonna kill you!” I run after her and tackle her, making her fall flat on her face. Thanks to my wolf, Isabelle, I’m a lot stronger than most female wolves.

“Oh God, my nose! You broke my perfect nose, Aurora!!” she says dramatically.

I roll my eyes because she is the number-one drama queen I have ever met. She deserves an award for it.

“That’s what you get for waking a zombie up, so don’t you ever wake me up like that! Like ever,” I say, smirking and flipping my wet hair.

She stands up and poses, sassily rolling her eyes, which makes her even more beautiful than she already is.

Jade is really beautiful with all those perfect curves and brown hair and her brown eyes, and here I am with blonde hair and green eyes and a normal body with some decent features.

I can’t say I’m too bad.

I feel I am just an ordinary girl with ordinary looks. I can never believe it if someone compliments me about my looks; I don’t know why.

“Aurora, I’ve been trying to wake you up for a good fifteen minutes. What could I do? I had to wake you up!” Jade says, keeping her hands on her hips.

“Why was it so important to wake me up from my beautiful sleep at seven o’clock, Jay?” I ask, pouting. “I lost a good amount of sleep because of you.”

“Stop acting, Aurora; you suck at it,” Jade says, sticking her tongue out and laughing like a hyena again.

I pretend to study her. “Jay, were you born a werewolf or mistaken for one? Because I am damn sure you are a hyena. You laugh just like one,” I say, acting serious.

“What?? Do I laugh like a hyena?” she asks with wide eyes. “But that’s okay.

“It’ll be a great help for me, because whenever your parents give you mental torture, I will laugh like a hyena and call all the hyenas in this whole world to our rescue,” she says, winking.

She needs some serious medical attention, but I love her.

I burst out laughing. She might have been missing a part of her brain when she was born!

She’s the only one who’s always been with me in bad times. Whenever my parents hurt me, she comes to my aid and consoles me. I’m so grateful to her.

“Aurora, get ready fast, or else you may have to face your mom’s wrath.”

Yeah… My parents abuse me emotionally.

I nod at her and run to the bathroom, do my business, and remove my wet clothes. I take a quick shower, wrap myself in a towel, and leave the bathroom.

I see Jade has already selected clothes for me to wear. I don’t know how to dress up or even how to pick an outfit. I would have been a mess if it weren’t for her.

“Thank you, Jay. You’re a lifesaver,” I say, blowing her a kiss.

“No problemo, Auri,” Jade says sweetly.

I put on a navy-blue top and skinny jeans. I don’t put anything on my face because I have good skin, and I tie my hair up in a high ponytail.

I head to the living room with Jade. I see my dad sitting at the dining table, doing some paperwork, as he is the beta of Silver Moon Pack.

Our alpha is Alpha Damon. He is a very good man, unlike his son Jacob. That guy is a man whore who sleeps with all the pack females. Gross!

He always eyes me as if he’s gonna rape me someday. I hate that man. Even Jade hates the sight of him, but there’s nothing we can do, as he is the future Alpha, which sucks!

I just hope he finds his mate soon.

I sigh.

“Aurora!” my mother calls loudly, breaking my thoughts.

“Why did you get up so late? Do you know what time is it? I had to make breakfast for your dad!”

I flinch at her tone. “I am sorry, Mother,” I say, looking down.

“Listen now, Missy. You have to make lunch and dinner for us as your punishment! If you don’t, you are not getting any food today! Do you hear that?”

I nod my head, still looking down.

“Good. Now get to work.” She smirks.

My so-called dad doesn’t even spare a glance at me! What kind of dad is he? Tears start threatening to fall, but I hold them back. ~No! I’m not gonna cry for such parents.~

But deep down, it hurts so much.

God!! What kind of life am I living when everyone gets to enjoy their life, and here I am, doing household chores!

I sigh deeply. I always try to be their perfect daughter, but they aren’t satisfied with me. How can they be satisfied? I am not their son.

Because my dad always wanted a son to take his beta position in the future, when I was born, he didn’t even want me.

I am too weak and pathetic. I’ve always wanted to win their love, but no matter what I do, I don’t succeed. My parents always act so normal in front of everyone, and I hate that.

“Aurora, everything’s gonna be all right. I’m always with you, okay?” Jade says, walking up behind me.

“Yeah, Jay. I have you,” I tell her honestly.

“I gotta go, Auri. My dad’s calling. I’ll be back. I love you,” Jade tells me, and before I can even reply to her, she walks out of the house in a hurry.

“Love you too, Jay,” I say to myself and head to the kitchen
