The moon rose itself high above his head, causing the red that stained his hazel eyes to shine outwards even more, a low growl escaping his lips as he crawled through the lonely forest. Its tall trees seemed to touch the sky, no matter what form his body had placed itself in, the trees reached as far to touch the heavens above him. His body seemed to turn at the speed of light even when he heard the smallest cracks of a branch, worrying himself over probably just a harmless, little squirrel lusting for the acorn before him. He sighed as he stalked on, patrolling the woods as to pose for something else; just like the squirrel, there was something he absolutely desired in the exact same way. He would’ve thought by now that he’d have found his mate, but his thoughts were rendered incorrect when his leader no longer spoke of his single life.
He seemed to find the dedication in his words, hidden and buried beneath the strong words he upheld for his mate, posing her as someone strong as himself in front of his pack. The kindness that he up fronted his words with wasn’t what caught him falling for the idea, but more or so the bliss of having such a counterpart; the other half he’s missed the past 18 years of his life. A year had almost passed since his birthday, yet he was still lonely as he prowled throughout the empty forests.
He ached for such solitude, the kind of torture that tied him together with someone of his own for eternity. The thought of such a process seemed ethereal to him, it just came with being the youngest of his pack. His six older brothers, and above all of that they would lead him to live a life just as they would and ask that he would follow in their footsteps; but when their Alpha, Namjoon, passed the title down to him as oppose to the other pack members, things became even heavier on him. He was determined to find his mate, the Female Alpha. So when the day finally came that he would find you, it would all be just a coincedence waiting to happen.
The stress that balanced on your head like a book had been placed there was absolutely killing you at this point. No matter how hard you tried, there was no way you’d be able to catch up on your precious sleep. The sunlight that seeped through the thin blinds of your window were what you woke up to after only a half hour sleep, and after very much self-convincing you finally decided that you were doing too much work for your own body to handle.
The first thing that came to your mind was a good walk, something to refresh your mind and bring you some peace in your hectic life for once. You remembered the forest that passed you by every morning on your way to work; it had always seemed to bring you in by the collar every time you saw the sunshine fade through the thick leaves of the trees, and you had only wished for more free time to allow yourself to venture it as you so wished. So that was where you were going, no matter how restless you were. To the public, it almost would’ve seemed like you were drunk out of your mind; even on the way there, you felt your vision continuously fade, causing you to trip over yourself multiple times.
The weight of your footsteps crunched against the fallen leaves, the death that traveled through its veins hardening it into a shell. You walked cautiously, each step careful not to trip itself over another fallen branch. The autumn feel was completely contained in the forest’s aura, the color scheme remaining multiple shades of orange due to the weather changes. The atmosphere itself had already began to soothe your worries, the peaceful silence bringing you the bliss of a simple massage. You smiled at yourself before venturing even further into the unknown of the woods before you.
Your arms were spread out around you, acting as if you were completely aware as to any danger to come near you. The sun of the night had begun to rise itself above you, its bright shine hardly visible through the tall trees surrounding it. You had work tomorrow, of course you did, but the importance of that would never compare to the beauty of the forest that had caught you in a net. You meekly laughed at your own actions, finally dropping your arms back down to your waist to relax yourself.
Right when you heard footsteps right behind you.
The noise had rendered you completely frozen, your ears perking up at the steps that creeped closer and closer to you. Your heavy panting fell slave to your fear, your breath finally hitching itself in the lodge of your throat. The sounds of your own breath were replaced by that of the person behind you, the heat of his breathing traveling up from the crook of your neck to the sensitive spot behind your ear. His hand and his delicate and feather like touch caressed your arm generously, goosebumps growing cold on your skin. “Sweetheart, do you realize how dangerous it is out here? Especially in the middle of the night,” his voice trailed off as his body figure traveled to the front of you. He didn’t give you a chance to answer him back as he took you by the hand and pulled you into the darkness of the woods.
You were completely clueless as to the situation you were in, fear clouding your mind and not allowing yourself to think clearly. Your mind seemed to resemble the sky above you as your gaze traveled up. The black canvas represented your mind as a whole, while the thin, grey clouds that shadowed the stars represented your struggle to think. You moved your gaze back down in front of you, your eyes coincidentally meeting with the back of the boy’s head. His brown shined under the moonlight, even when the darkness around you had enveloped the rest of your sight. The line that traveled down his back had been perfectly displayed to you as he ran along with you trailing behind him, the muscles in his back flexing with every lunge. You had absolutely no idea who he was, but you had to admit his first impression wasn’t that bad; aside from the fact that he was practically kidnapping you at the moment.
In your mind, even you yourself were wondering why you would let such a gorgeous man kidnap you; maybe it was the stress that weighed you even closer to the floor, or the fact that you just wanted out of your stressful life, or maybe it was neither. You felt yourself floating around him, the oxygen that he brought around with him seemed different from the air that flowed throughout the entirety of the woods. It felt like there was a reason for what was currently going on, and it was one that would required you to be from a whole other world to understand.
You were his mate, and you just didn’t know it yet—as if you’d even know it in the first place. He had found you through your scent from even miles away, finding himself instantly attracted to you, leading him to stalk you around until he finally found the perfect moment to steal you for himself.
He stopped the both of you in front of a cave-like structure, completely cleared out of trees so that the main focus was itself and its beauty. Your feet stopped abruptly behind him as you stumbled into his bare back, your fingers unintentionally clawing at his shoulders. Your breath suddenly picked up once more as he suddenly held you against his body even longer and closer, watching out of the corner of your eye as he took in your scent. He buried his noise into your hair, his touch on you as soft as cotton and as light as a feather. He was gentle, cradling your frame gently in his arms to distract you from the fact that his lips began to move closer and closer to your neck.
You were so focused on him, how lovely it would be to have fallen in love with him; yet that was a fantasy you had to wait no longer for. You were violently dragged out of your thoughts when you felt a soft pair of lips land in the crook of your neck, planting a single sweet kiss on the exact spot that drove you crazy.
A dark blush consumed your features as you finally got to hear his deep and velvety voice for once, a low howl falling from his innocently beautiful lips. “I guess I’ve finally found you, my beautiful mate. My Female Alpha.”
