I ran down the stairs to see both of my parents trying to hold the door closed. It enraged me because he was basically disrespecting my parents, and my house.
“Oh my god.” I whispered to myself as I hopped down the last three steps.
“I can smell her close! Let me see her!” He yelled as he shoved forcefully at the door again almost making the door hit my mom.
“Luka, stop!” I yelled, making everyone stop.
“Honey, go back upstairs righ-”
“No, it’s ok, I got this.” I said cutting my father off.
I approached the door and Luka was panting, almost growling. I couldn’t help my urge to touch his shoulder to calm him down. As I reached my hand out to touch him he watched it intently. It was until I realized what I was doing that I withdrew my hand again, and he took a sharp intake of breath as if something had hurt him.

“Luka..why-what are you doing there?” I asked swallowing hard.
“Really!? Charlotte, I love you. You’re my mate. I need you.” He said with pleading eyes.
“Luka, you can’t just come here and expect me to just be with you because we’re mates if anything that’s the only reason we are at this point. I don’t like one bit of that! You know how selfish that is Luka!? I’m the type of girl who wants someone who loves them because they’re quirky, or that they give them incredible motivation.” I started to cry. “I want a guy who noticed me for my smile or laugh or eyes. Or, oh god, a guy who noticed me for my drive and intelligence. Not a werewolf who noticed me only because of a scent I give off letting him know that “Hey dude there’s the girl that you’re gonna love forever and she’s gonna love you back and be yours forever without any effort.” Luka, I want someone who…puts all the werewolf stuff aside and sees me.”
“I see all of that!” He pleaded frantically trying to grab at my hands.
“For crying out loud, Luka you couldn’t even be with me in the beginning because I was a “human”. You weren’t even planning on it.” Saying that broke my heart into pieces. Screw my little wolf heart and this cliché as hell love.
I closed the door on him, and leaned against the door. My eyes stung with unfallen tears.
“Im n-not giving u-up Charlie.” Luka sobbed. He sounded so broken.
I slid down the door and let my floodgates open. It was times like these that I think about how much my life has changed in such short time, and what my new reality is. Why did it have to be me? I’m pretty sure everyone asks that, but why did my life need this?
My mom came out of the swinging door to the kitchen, and waved me over. At her sudden appearance I sucked up my tears and composed myself a bit. I got up and walked tot he kitchen. When I walked in. My dad was hunched over the counter with his head down. I sat down in the nearest empty chair and waited.
“Jared…” My mom quietly said to my dad as she rubbed him on the back gaining his attention.
“We’ve decided to leave Charlotte.” He said as he turned around.
My heart immediately constricted. Something about that sentence made me sick, but the other part of me felt relived.
“Why?” I said without thinking. My parents eyes both went wide in shock.
“Luka isn’t going to leave us alone. As long as you two are mates he will do anything to be with you. That even means if you try to move on with, say, another wolf or human he will be determined to rip that persons head off.” My dad said coldly.
“So all that has to happen is the bond has to break. Correct?” I asked hopeful.
“Yes, why do you ask?” My mom asked me concerned.
“Oh, it’s nothing I just wanted to be clear.” I said as I got up and went off to my room. How exactly was I going to break the bond? There weren’t any potions that could do that I assumed. There was only one sure way to so it. Call him, and reject him.
I picked my phone up off my nightstand, and dialed his number. My wolf was crying telling me not to, but the sane part of me knew I had reasons. After all I’m my own person, and I can make my own decisions.
The phone rang 2 times and he immediately picked up.
“Charlotte!” He yelled panting.
“Yeah, hey. Are you ok?” I asked trying to seem nonchalant.
“I’m so sorry! Please baby, we are meant for each other. Are you really going to believe that the only reason I love you is because of the bond? If you want my reasons I have a list of them right here in front of me. 4 pages from and back and if this is wh-”
“No no, I believe you.” I said before he could carry on. I knew that if he gave me reasons I would give in. “I was just calling because I need to tell you something.”
“Anything babygirl.” He said expectantly. I could almost see his smile.
“I don’t love you, Luka. I never want to see you ever again. Don’t bother talking to me at school or coming around my house. Give up on me okay? Goodbye.”
Then I hung up.
A couple seconds later I got this very sharp pain in my chest and I stumbled to the floor in front of my bed. I screamed out in agonizing pain. I wondered if Luka was feeling this because of me. The thought of it made the pain worse.
“I’m so sorry.” I sobbed out on my floor curled up in a ball. I love Luka. I know I do. I just can’t be the girl for him.
I will love you till my last breath. I heard before my eyes closed and I was overtaken by sleep.
