ENEMIGO Episode 2 by Ebunoluwa Ademide
My Mate 💕 or My Enemy 🤔
🌻 Sky’s POV 🌻
••• THREE DAYS LATER•••
At dawn,I strode into the throne hall where my official were already seated awaiting my arrival. They stood up and bowed in respect to me as I walked gracefully to my throne and sat in it.
“The Alpha king is seated,you may rise.” Eunuch Cole instructed.
At the previous meeting which was held a day after I killed the spy,my officials came up with several ways to get rid of Alpha Zion but none of it made sense to me. Only old Ben suggested that we send a note to Alpha Zion to invite him for questioning. The Alpha needs to testify before my court that the spy who was killed wasn’t a member of his pack. And this time I won’t be lenient on him.
I won’t hesitate to kill him if I find out that he sent that man to my kingdom. Though it won’t be easy because Alpha Zion is a tough cookie and I am pretty sure he would find a way to escape my punishment against his pack.
On my orders,Cullen sent one of his men to deliver a note to the Crescent Pack. Surprisingly the warrior returned empty-handed. He stated that Alpha Zion is ill and won’t be able to stand any questioning but he promised to send representatives to defend his Pack.
From the information gathered,I found out that Alpha Zion already passed his Alpha title to his only child – a girl who happens to be an HYBRID. She is a Wolf and a Witch. She is an HYBRID because Alpha Zion’s mate was a witch,a powerful witch who helped him establish a great pack. I really don’t know too much about his mate but I heard she is dead.
And presently, I was prepared to meet the only female Alpha in the Lycan world. No doubt,she would be prideful and cruel just like her father. And probably rude,greedy and disrespectful like Alpha Zion.
Several hours passed and I began to lose my patience. What’s taking so long to get to my kingdom?
“Cullen,are you sure the Crescent members would show up today?”
“According to the note, they promised to meet you,Alpha King.”
About five minutes later,a guard stepped forward and whispered something to Cullen’s ear. “My Lord,the Crescent Pack members just arrived.” Cullen said to me.
I sighed. “Bring them in.” I straightened my shoulder and relaxed into my seat. The guards at the entrance opened up the door for our visitors.
Six hefty men walked in and bowed in respect to me. “Long live the Alpha king!” They chorused.
“Rise.” I ordered and they obeyed. “Where is your Alpha?” I asked,feeling disappointed that the she-wolf didn’t come with them.
“Our Alpha is ill.” One of them answered. “But our new Alpha Is here.” He bowed.
All of a sudden,my wolf became excited,I tried to calm it but it didn’t listen.
The men stood on each side to make way for whoever was to come in. My wolf jumping around and I couldn’t tell what was happening.
Suddenly,a sweet and ecstatic scent made it way to me and it immediately made my body at ease. My wolf leaped in happiness and I was puzzled. I gasped in shock when a beautiful figure appeared in the hall.
She stopped at once as if she had smell the same thing I had smelled. I was shocked for a moment before I finally realized what the heck was going on.
As she got closer,her emerald green eyes was looking intently at me as if she was looking deeply through my soul. “No,she can’t be….” I mumbled but it came out more of a whisper. This can’t be happening! She can’t be my mate! She is the daughter of one of the strongest and powerful Alpha in the Lycan world.
Alpha Zion is heartless, he is a murderer and he even tried to take away my father’s throne. He is the greatest enemy of my kingdom! So why did the moon goddess pair me with his daughter?!
How can I bring myself to accept the fact that my enemy is my mate.
Everyone already knew what was going on between us and they all began to murmur.
“This hybrid is the king’s mate?”
“The child of a werewolf Slayer and red haired witch is to be mated to the king?”
“Why did the moon goddess pair our king with an enemy?”
“I think we should be glad we will have a powerful Luna to protect our kingdom from evil forces.”
“This is unbelievable!”
“This can’t be happening!”
“Why does it have to be our grestest enemy?”
Those were the handful of comments from my officials. I could sense the powerful aura radiating around her. And from her look I knew she wasn’t happy with the hateful comments by my officials.
The Crescent Members had confused and angry expressions on their faces. And slowly the she-wolf and one hefty man walked close to the throne.
“Long live the King!” She bowed.
I took in my mate’s features as my wolf was trying to stay calm. Tall and slender,long and wavy brown hair,high and rosy cheekbones,pointed nose and a lopsided pink lips. All he wanted was to claim our mate and complete the bond but he felt annoyed hearing the hateful comments from my officials.
“This isn’t a matter to discuss with your officials! No one should talk Ill of our mate!” He snapped at me.
“Rise to your feet.” I said and she stood upright.
” I am Mia Zion, the Alpha of Crescent Pack. And with me here is Warrior Cain.” She gestured to the hefty man who accompanied her into the hall.
Wow! Our mate got a cute name! Mia! My wolf said excitedly.
I cleared my throat before speaking up again.”You are welcome to Donia Kingdom. And thanks for honoring my invitation.” She bowed again.
I beckoned to the Eunuch on my right to come closer. “I want everyone out of this hall. I want to talk to the Crescent Alpha alone.” I whispered to him. He said my words to the every member in the court.
They all stood up to leave, murmurings echoed in the hall but only the Crescent members stayed behind. I knew they wouldn’t want to leave their Alpha alone with me seeing how harsh my officials had been on her.
“I would like to speak to your Alpha alone.”
It wasn’t hard to miss the look on their faces. They looked uncomfortable leaving their alpha with me. Cain exchanged glances with Mia.
“Cain, go ahead and check out the body of the spy who they claimed to be a member of our pack.” She instructed without looking away from me.
“Cullen,show them the body.” I ordered Cullen,who bowed before leaving the throne hall with the Crescent men.
I rose up from my throne and went to her. “Oh. So I am mated to an enemy.” I chuckled but it soon faded quickly when I noticed the hurt written all over her expression.
‘You shouldn’t call our mate our enemy!” My wolf growled at me.
‘she’s my enemy!’ I snapped back.
“We are not enemies.” She replied.
“What?!” She jumped a bit. “Your father murdered my mom! Plus he tried to take away my kingdom! He sent many spies to my kingdom! Do you know what that means? Trespassing!”
Once again my wolf scolded me for snarling at our mate.
“My Lord,do you have any proof that my father committed these crimes?” She asked.
I laughed out. “Everyone…every Alpha in the Lycan world know that your father has his eyes on my throne. Even the newborn knows your father is a murderer and a greedy Alpha.”
“With due respect my Lord,I won’t stand you talking Ill of my father.” She said with her chin high up and straight shoulders.
She nodded in response and turned to face me again. “I was invited to defend my pack and not to witness you talk bad about my father. So your highness would you please call in your men to present the weapons found on deceased body?” She said confidently.
‘Gosh! We are blessed with a perfect mate!” My wolf jumped happily, impressed that our mate didn’t feel too intimidated by my alpha presence.
‘I don’t want an enemy as my mate! I hate her father!’
‘And where is he now?’ my wolf asked me as I walked back to sit on my throne.
I gestured to Eunuch Cole to call in the court members. She avoided my gaze when I looked back at her.
“My Lord,the men confirmed that the deceased is not a member of the Crescent Pack.” Cullen explained when he came back into the throne hall.
Cain stepped forward and opened up his sleeve which revealed a large dragon tatoo on his arm and the other men did the same too. “This is the Crescent Pack mark.”
It happens to be the same as their war emblem. “My Lord,the deceased isn’t associated with our pack. His mark faded which is not supposed to be.” He paused and exchanged glances with my mate. “Our Alpha is Ill. He is not a good condition to wage war against a pack lest to talk a whole werewolf kingdom.”
I chuckled deeply. “But he once tried to take my throne.” I said, looking straight at the she wolf.
“My father tried to take your throne but is this supposed to be about just my father? Every Alpha envy your throne but it just happened that my father was the only one who had the courage to come for it.” She stared intensely at me,making it hard for me to think straight for a while. ‘
‘Damn! Our mate is gorgeous!” My wolf said happily. I could sense it connecting with her wolf but I wasn’t ready to complete the connection. She is my enemy.
‘Stop being stubborn! Our mate needs us! And we have to bond with her so other wolves can’t stop looking at her.’
I looked up and noticed my officials eyes were on my mate. The she-wolf was beautiful. And the aura around her spells power.
“My Lord…” Her melodious tone jolted me out of thought. “I am sure my father didn’t send the spy.”
“And you want me to believe that?”
She lowered her head. “Your Highness,you don’t have to believe me now but -“
“Your father is in the black book of my kingdom!” I growled out.
“Eventually, you’ll have to believe it that my father didn’t send the spy! The pack mark faded on the deceased body, does that not send a deep messsge to you that someone else is after your throne?!” She snarled back at me. Gasps from my officials filled the air.
“Forgive me my Lord, but I think you should look into this properly. Find out who is the real enemy now that it is obvious that my father can’t come after your throne.” She said seriously.
Everywhere was silent,no word was heard from an official.
Could she be right after all? Someone else wants my throne? And now that it is clear that Alpha Zion is terribly ill and couldn’t have sent someone to this kingdom. The dragon-like mark on the deceased body faded too! So what’s going on?!
All of a sudden,everywhere became noisy. I looked up to see my officials murmuring to one another.
“My Lord,I think she’s right.” Xavier said. “Someone -” Cullen gestured to him to stay quiet.
“My Lord,” Cain bowed. “We’ve been able to prove to you that the deceased isn’t a member of the Present pack.”
“So we’ll take our leave now.” Mia added.
‘She’s leaving! Our mate is leaving!’ my wolf grumbled.
‘I can’t hold her down.’ I said within.
‘place an order that they shouldn’t leave.’
“That’s impossible,I can’t hold them against their wish!’
‘Do something!’ my wolf stirred.
‘She is an enemy!’ I snapped back and my wolf resigned to the back of my mind.
“Your Highness,it is indeed a pleasure to be in your kingdom.” Mia said with her chin in the air.
My eyes did a slow crawl on her once again. “Thanks for honouring my invitation.”
The seven men and my mate bowed in respect before turning to leave.
“Tell her to wait,you can’t let her leave like that knowing that she’s your mate.” My wolf mumbled sadly.
“I am sorry,I can’t accept her.”
“She’s an enemy to this kingdom.”
‘But she didn’t do anything..’
“She might want to take my throne the same way her father -“
‘She’s your future luna.’
“I am not going to accept her until I find the truth.”
“The person who keep sending those spies to my kingdom.”
The Crescent Members were already out of hall when I snapped out of thought again.
