Chapter 2 - My Second Chance

Sapphire's P.O.V

A year later...

I walked with full confidence into my pack's borders. I went to England for my studies. It was a great idea. I needed some time to cool off after being rejected so I decided to leave, finding some solace in England's beautiful moody panoramas.

I smirked at the reaction of my pack members. Males started eye raping my hourglass figure.

"Sapphire? Is that really you?" Someone called out behind me. I turned to face Bella. Her brown hair got longer from the past year. Willow and her blonde hair with iconic pink highlights appeared beside her.

"Hey guys." I grinned at my best friends. "It is you!" Willow squealed and tackled me to the ground. "Okay. Enough with the warm welcomes." I smiled and climbed up.

"You... How... Why... Forget it..." Bella mumbled.

I grinned cheekily at her.

"I look gorgeous right? You have no idea how much work I had to put in to look like this." I twirled around under the sunlight. My sundress flowy and light.

"Sapphire?" A warm hand touched me on the shoulders.

I shook it off by instincts, turning around to see the hot guy that broken my heart a year ago. "Leonard." I smirked at his bulging eyes. His eyes scanned over my now slim figure. "You look hot." He whispered. I smirked and took a step away. "Yeah, thanks. Look, I'm sorry, but I gotta go. See you?" I said turning, not waiting for an answer while my friends helped me with my luggage.

"Thanks guys." I smiled at them appreciatively.

I trailed behind as they walked ahead.

Funny... But my heart didn't beat as fast as it used to when I saw him the last time.

I shrugged. Things change. He finally sees that he isn't worthy of us, Drew sneered. Funny, but I don't like him anymore, Gwen frowned. We just got over him, I said as both of them nodded in agreement.

I popped into the Alpha's office to notify him of my arrival. He looked me up and down, his tongue darting out to lick his lips. After an uncomfortable conversation, he told me I was free to go. He disgusts me, Drew grumbled. Even Gwen was mad.

He's our Alpha, we have to respect him, I reminded them. Although he does make me gag, I added. Gwen and Drew chuckled at the comment.

"Okay. Tell us everything. Every single detail." Willow demanded as I was pulled into my room. I had allowed them to pull me wherever they wanted to after meeting the Alpha. I left them for a whole year. They're entitled to some excitement and bossiness.

"What do you want to know about?" I asked, smoothing the bed sheet I sat on.

"Every single thing. Don't you understand the meaning of everything? Hot guys! The food! The view! The people! EVERYTHING." Bella gripped my shoulders.

"Okay, okay." I laughed at her eagerness.

"Wait..." Bella pulled away.

"What?" I frowned at the sudden change of mood. Willow looked confused too. "You aren't one of those girls who ignore her friends when you get popular and pretty, right?" She asked with narrowed eyes.

"Course not! I'm here talking to both of you, aren't I? That's something you will never have to worry about." I laughed, standing to envelop her into a huge hug. She pulled away and grinned..

"You know... After you left. People started talking about you." Willow said. I tensed a little.

"About what?" I asked, running my sweaty palms against my skirt.

"Don't be nervous. People weren't talking about the rejection or anything-" Bella gasped and covered her mouth quickly. Ahh.. the event that shall not be named.

Weird... But Gwen wasn't reacting to the word, rejection. Gwen? I called. What? She answered. Aren't you sad or something... Before I could finish she cut me off. No, I told you that I was over him, She said smoothly.

Umm, okay? I said. This is confusing but I'm gonna put it on the back burner for now.

"I'm so sorry if I offended Gwen or..." Bella was babbling.

"It's fine. Gwen said that she was over him." I said smoothly. "But... That's not right... Aren't rejections or lost of mates hurt for eternity. Not that I want you hurt." Willow frowned.

"Have you ever hurt of second chance mates?" Bella asked jumping up and down in excitement.

"No, Bell... Those don't happen often." I said, shaking my head. I don't want even want a mate again, I added mentally.

Second chance mates are when the Moon Goddess mistakenly pairs up mates. And miraculously, she admits her mistake and sent another mate for the unfortunate werewolf. Those are really really rare chances. So far, there were only three cases in the last few years.

"Maybe..." Bella started and I burst.

"Stop it! I don't want another mate!" I yelled. Bella looked frightened at my outburst. "Sapph... " Willow said. "I'm sorry, Bell... I just- I just don't want to deal with anything like that again." I sighed. "I'm sorry too... I shouldn't have pushed on the matter." Bella whispered and hugged me.

"Oh... Sapph... Did you know that we will have a Luna soon?" Willow said suddenly.

"Luna? He found his mate?" I asked. I'm so sorry for that girl, Drew said in my head. I ignored her. "Who?" I asked, raising an eyebrow.

"I'm not sure. He said he will make up his mind by tonight." Bella explained. "Will? What does he mean by will?" I asked confused. "He says that he can't wait forever. He will choose a girl by tonight." Willow explained nervously. "I hope it isn't me..." Bella squeezed her eyes shut. "Nobody does." Willow said.

"Then what about the girl's mate?" I asked, widening my eyes.

"That's just it. The girl will have to forget about him." Bella said with a pained look. "What?" I shrieked as my best friends shush me. "How can he be so... cruel?" I whispered. Both of them shrugged.

"Hey. I gotta go to the training grounds. You don't need to go today since you just came back." Willow stated, standing up. "Okay." I answered, looking onto the bed. "I'm so jealous..." Bella said, eyeing me as I continue to lie in bed. I smirked at her while waving.

"Just meet at the main hall at six. The Alpha's announcing his Luna later." Willow reminded me before closing the door behind her. Leaving me alone to wonder about the unfortunate girl that has to put up with the old man.

"Oh and you still own us the details of your trip." Bella said, startling me by poking her head through the door suddenly.

I chuckled as she ran off to training.
