Chapter 18 (Verse 1)
Theme : Theo Hunter vs Jayden Steel (1)
I let out a sharp breath as I opened my be-droom door.
It was the day of the match.
I woke up early, at around six A.M, to ensure I had a
relaxed morning routine. It’s almost tradition to have a
lazy, calm morning routine on the day of the match.
I packed very lightly, only bringing some towels, spare
shoes and clothes. Just in case.
I even had time to tidy the room, ma-king sure I hid the
book and the ph0to well. Now I had absolutely nothing
to worry about, even the littlest things.
I wore a very simple outfit consisting of a black, off the
shoulder crop t©p and high [email protected]!sted denim shorts. Thank
goodness, the weather looked pretty good; I was worried
that it might’ve been cold. I really dislike fighting in cold
The sun was shining brightly against the blue skies that
had only a few clouds decorating it.
I looked down at my outfit in worry. It was quite
revea-ling for someone who lives in hoodies and joggers,
but I was running out of things to wear.
Usually I would wear [email protected] with a crop t©p to
compensate for the revea-ling t©p half and I would wear a
hoodie with any shorts.
I shrugged it off and made my way downstairs, holding
my backback in one hand. I left the bag near the front
door and made my way into the kitchen where everyone
seemed to be.
I li-cked myl-ips in nervousness, remembering yesterday’s
Would anyone ask what had happened between Theo
and I? Had any told them we’re mates? Or had they
figured it out themselves?
Upon entering the kitchen, the volume of the chatter
decrea-sed as they all looked my way.
Almost everyone was downstairs alre-ady.
It was pretty early in the morning, seven A.M, and yet,
here was everyone, alre-ady dressed and eating breakfast.
None of them spoke, ma-king me shift on the sp©t
cautiously. What was going on?
Jay was sitting with the warriors from our pack, far from
Julian who he’d been with this entire trip. Theo was
sitting next to Julian, drinking a protein shake.
We held each others gaze for a few moments before he
broke it, to look down at my outfit.
Or b©dy…I wasn’t sure.
His icy blue eyes turned darker as the seconds went by.
He couldn’t rip his gaze off my b©dy, ma-king me feel h0t
and flvstered from his heated gaze.
A loud scra-ping sound of a chair moving against the floor
caught my attention. I saw Jay stand up abruptly with an
annoyed and determined look on his face.
He marched around the marble island in the middle of
the kitchen and situated himself in the line of Theo’s sight
I watched Jay in disbelief as he ‘innocently’ starts to pour
himself a bowl a cereal.
It wasn’t ha-rd to guess that he had seen Theo’s staring,
and brou-ght it upon himself to st©p him.
And he did…in the most pas-sive aggressive way possible.
Stand in Theo’s line of sight.
Leona’s face emerged from the group, showcasing her
usual warm smile as she gestured for me to sit next to
I walked towards her, grateful that she seemed to be
herself, unlike everyone else.
“Why did everyone come down so early?” I asked,
choosing a smoothie to drink.
“I don’t know. I think everyone couldn’t wait to get up
later, so they got re-ady and [email protected]£ down.” Leona replied,
sipping on her coffee.
I started to pour myself the berry filled smoothie when
Leona started to check me out.
“Damn, you look good!” She exclaimed, her eyes
wi-dening as she stared at my legs. “Where have you been
hiding those long tan legs?”
I blu-shed at her compliment and smiled at her. She’s
really sweet, bless her.
“You have b©dy goals, like drool worthy!” She continued
I laughed at her choice of words and pla-yfully [email protected]
“Your b©dy is drool worthy, babe.” Julian spoke up,
And, that’s when they started to make out. Yup, right in
front of me.
I quic-kly finished the smoothie and heading towards the
fridge to get a bottle of water.
My stomach suddenly had bu-tterflies when I realised
Theo was sitting right by the fridge. When I reached the
fridge, I opened it and looked for the water bottles.
“Could you get me one?” Julian’s voice rang out.
I nodded without turning around and [email protected]£d two
bottles. I closed the fridge and turned around quic-k
enough to catch Theo staring at my as-s.
His eyes immediately diverted when I caught him and
started to busy himself by cleaning the table.
I shook my head at him slightly, ignoring the rush of
blood entering my cheeks. I knew I was blu-shing and put
the cold bottle on my cheek.
I gave the other to Julian and sat down on my seat. Jay
stood up and gave me his hoodie.
I took it and stared at him confused.
“What? No, it’s way too h0t.” I refused, trying to give it
back. “I don’t even know why you were wearing it.”
“Just wear it, plea-se. Or at least, tie it around your [email protected]!st.”
I stared at him for a good few seconds before shaking my
“Okay, I’ll tie it around my [email protected]!st.”
Just then, the front door opened and we all perked up.
Kobi entered the kitchen with a few papers in his hand.
“Alpha, everything is in place and re-ady.”
Theo held his hand out wordlessly so Kobi could hand
over the papers.
He re-ad it’s content quietly before handing them back to
Kobi. He stood up and nodded at us.
“We can go to the BKSD warrior area, and get re-ady
We all started to clean up the mess we made from
breakfast and made our way to the front door.
After ensuring everyone had their belongings, we started
to pile into the vehicles in the driveway.
The drive was pretty quic-k, only a fifteen minute drive to
the warrior training area.
Jay refused to leave my side the entire time, even when
we were entering the area. He hadn’t said it yet, but I
knew he was angry at Theo for tou-ching me. He knew he
couldn’t pick a fight on this territory, but showed his
annoyance throu-gh his actions.
His overpossessiveness was showing when he’d hold me
close whenever he saw Theo even look my way.
I knew Theo had noticed this because his eyes kept
narrowing at Jay’s arm ti-ghtly wra-pped around my [email protected]!st.
We slowly st©pped in our tracks and looked up at Theo.
He was wearing a humourless sm-irk, it was directed at
“Jayden Steel, listen up. Elisia and I have shared plenty of
inti-mate moments, much more inti-mate than what you
walked in on yesterday.”
I [email protected]
Leona choked on God knows what.
Our pack warriors stared at me with raised eyebrows.
Theo looked satisfied and chuckled at our reactions.
Tell me why would he say that?
“W-what?” I stuttered, still shocked at what he said.
“Is that true?”
My mouth opened even further when I heard Jay’s
“What? No!” I exclaimed, glaring at Theo.
I wish it was…
Ughh, I shook my head ha-rd to get rid of that thought.
“Aww, you don’t have to be shy about it.” Theo tea-sed,
wi-nking at me.
Since when does this man wi-nk?
Why hadn’t he done it before? Because damn, h0ttness
Okay, now I sound like a high schooler with a hvge crush.
I’ve got to st©p and clear this misun-derstanding up.
“Nothing has happened between us, nothing!” I clarified.
Except that we’re mates, but they don’t nee-d to know
that little fact just yet.
Theo watched me closely and then shrugged.
“Okay, leave it to their imagination. Good idea.” He said
huskily, sm-irking at me.
I gaped at him disbelief, as his eyes roamed my b©dy
while b!tt!g hisl-ips.
What has gotten into him?
“Let’s go.” He ordered, not waiting for anyone as he
Jay’s arm around my [email protected]!st loos£ned as he shifted away
from me. I glanced to my side where he was, to find him
His usually green eyes were turning black.
They zeroed in on Theo’s unsuspecting figure and then
“Jay, don’t!” I cried, as I tried to hold onto him.
It was too late.
Jay had sprung from his stationary position, and
somehow had enough power to be able to cover the
distance to attack Theo, who had his back turned.
Leona, who was the closest to Jay other than me,
proceeded to trip him up before he could reach her
Alpha. Her quic-k reflexes did make him stumble, but his
quic-k reflexes allowed him to recover quic-kly.
Our pack warriors stepped away from the situation. They
knew better than to stay in the way of their angry future
Alpha. Instead, they looked at me expecting me to do
Jay aimed for Theo’s n£¢k, but didn’t get a hit on it
because he dodged his attack.
He dodged Jay’s attack with his back on him. How?
They were facing each other, Jay was snarling and Theo
That’s when realisation hit me; Theo said those things to
purposely annoy Jay. He dodged with his back turned
because he was expecting it.
“Okay, st©p.” Kobi said, not looking happy at all.
“Oh, come on. A little fight won’t hurt anyone.” Theo
joked, his eyes not leaving Jay figure. “I’m sure Jayden
has some grudges against me.”
“My bad feeling about you was right.” Jay snarled,
showing his teeth “You haven’t taken your eyes off Elisia
since we [email protected]£. At first, I thought it was because you were
entrigued by her; she has an impressive reputation after
Theo’s gaze fli-ckered to me for a split sceond before he
said, “I agree that she’s quite impressive.”
My stomach was filled with bu-tterflies once again. What
has come over Theo?
Does he mean what he says or is he just saying to
Nonetheless, I won’t fall for his charms, not until I know
what’s holding him back from accepting the mate bond. I
knew it had to be serious.
Not to mention, l nee-d to find out the details about when
his father ordered the termination of my birth pack.
“How about you, Jayden?” Theo questioned, still wearing
that sm-irk on his devilishly handsome face. “You’re not
exactly an angel, are you?
Jay’s eyes narrowed at him. “What the fv¢k are you
“I’m not the only person here interested in Elisia. Am I?”
I raised an eyebrow at him, what was he implying?
That Jay is interested in me…in that way?
I stared at Theo, wondering if he’d gone mad.
Instead, he stared my Jay with so much expectation that
it made me turn to look at Jay with expectation too.
He scoffed at what Theo said, but remained quiet. His
black coloured iris’ were slowly turning back to it’s
normal emerald green colour.
“Let’s go.” Kobi sighed, alre-ady having enough.
Theo ignored him and carried on speaking. “Why don’t
you st©p behaving like a fv¢king h!pocrite and say it.”
“Tell her how you feel!”
Jay stayed silent, looking defeated. Oh God, this
conversation is taking a weird turn.
“What the hell is going on?” I finally asked, looking
around in confusion.
When Jay stayed quiet, Theo grinned knowing he’d won
the argument. Whatever it was.
“See you can’t, can you?” He said gleefully. “That’s
because you’re not her mate.”
He dropped the smile, stepped forward and r0ûghly
[email protected]£d a fistful of Jay’s shi-t.
“So don’t act like you are.” He snarled in his face.
And that’s when Jay lost it,
He r!pp£dTheo’s hands off his shi-t, and in a matter of
seconds s£nds a punch directly to Theo’s face, Theo
involuntarily stepped backwards, blood alre-ady gushing
out from his nose, Julian and Leona quic-kly ran behind
their Alpha, the four Warriors that accompanied us also
[email protected] themselves behind Jay,
OH, this is never gonna be good news, I exclaimed,
almost crying, I couldn’t think of anything to st©p them,
just then Theo raised his hands up like a signal, my God!
his he calling for back up? Oh no! Then I saw Leona and
Julian step away,
oh! He’s actually telling them to back out. I heaved a sigh
of relief, Jay in turn looked behind him ma-king eye
contact with the warriors, they too stepped back, then I
heared Theo chuckling, “let’s do this” Honestly this would
have been an interesting fight to watch but thinking
about the repercussion after, makes me want to pas-s out,
if Theo decides, he could start a war, if Jay reports the
incident to his dad, it’ll still be war, the probability of war
not happening after the fight is very slim, and just when I
thought of probabilities, Jay only has the alpha blood
running in his system, he’s yet to become an alpha, Theo
is alre-ady a full b!own alpha, the chances of Jay winning
this fight is slim. Not a very fair fight afterall. And before I
could think of something else, they lunged at each other.
So who’s up for the next chapter?
It should be exciting……
Team Theo Hunter say “Theo”
Team Jayden Steal say “Jay”
Team I don’t know who to choose say “Confused”
Chapter 18 (Verse 2)
Theme : Theo Hunter vs Jayden Steel (2)
Jay rushed at Theo with full speed, aiming a punch at his
head, Theo swiftly rally around him, then using his elbow
against Jay’s back, forcing to leap more forward, almost
stumbling, Jay recovered quic-kly, they stared coldly at
each other, eyes blackened in anger, to my surprise I
couldn’t see any sign of hatred. Just anger and fury.
This time Theo charged at Jay, he aimed for his stomach,
but Jay caught his hand before his b!ow landed, but he
wasn’t expecting what happened next, Theo headbu-tt
him, with his quic-k reflexes he s£nt punches right across
Jay’s face, hitting him on only two sp©ts, his right cheek,
and the left cheek, when he was satisfied he turned
around flying and s£nding a powerful kick to his head.
Jay fell to the ground, blood splushing out of his mouth
like jui-ce, he made to stand up, but Theo s£nt another
kick to his h!ps, forcing him to roll back down, Theo
thinking he won the fight with Jay’s back to the ground
made to sma-ck him in the face with his boots, but Jay still
got some fight left in him, he caught his legs just inches
to his face, he used his other hand to pu-ll him to the
ground, in a matter of seconds, he was on t©p Theo
s£nding punches to his face, just like he had done to him,
hitting the right and left cheeks as Theo’s back was now
to the ground, blood was gushing from Theo’s mouth as
Jay dealth b!ows to his face, Theo probably having
enough used his free leg to kick Jay off him, Jay fell but
was quic-kly on his feet again, but that was enough time
for Theo to pu-ll himself back on his feet too, both the
Alpha and the future Alpha stared coldly at each other,
mouth, eyes, nose, ears of the two drained in blood. You
could ha-rd ly recognize them, it was then it dawned on
me I was the cause of the fight, they made to charge I
each other for the second time.
“St©p!” I eventually found my voice, to my surprise they
st©pped in their tracks to look at me.
Then I knew what I had to do, I feined pas-sing out, I let
myself sl!pto the floor, thankfully Theo caught me, Jay
quic-kly ran beside me, Elisa what’s wrong? “Jay
questioned, sounding genuinely concerned, ” today is the
day of the match you can’t be sick”
“Oh, you knew that and you two were fighting in front of
me, get off me!” I pushed Theo’s hands away, am fine,
you two go and clean ur face.
The both looked at themselves bewildered, now they
know I pla-yed them. But at least it worked. They both
went off to watch their blood soa-ked faced and [email protected]£
I couldn’t believe Jay got himself into a physical fight with
the Alpha of this pack. He’s usually very good at
prioritising things, like he doesn’t let his anger affect his
ability of ma-king good decisions.
He shouldn’t have never even thought of attacking Theo,
the consequences are great. That was poor decision
ma-king on his [email protected], I should really talk to him about it
That, as well as what I think Theo was implying…
Hopefully things doesn’t get out of hands.
We finally entered the main [email protected] of the warrior area.
Kobi turned to me, showing me a set of keys. “You’ll nee-d
to go to block A, which is the biggest building on your
right, and enter the room number 7. That’s where you’ll
be staying to get re-ady and where you’ll be chilling after
I nodded and took the keys off him with a smile.
“Actually, the match is in half an hour because I didn’t
expect for our leaders to get in a lousy fight. Although,
I’m sure you could get re-ady in that time.” He added,
glancing at his wrist watch.
“Well, this is the only time we’ll see you until you’re in the
fighting ring.” Julian said, grinning at me.
“I can’t wait to finally see you in action! Good luck!”
Leona gushed, [email protected] in excitement.
“Yeah, good luck!” Julian added, giving me a high-five.
My warrior pack member all gave me high fives, hvgs as
well as motivating and encouraging words.
“Okay, see you all later!” I waved, as I walked away.
Like I expected, Jay started to walk with me.
“Where do you think you’re going?”
Jay f0rç£fully sighed, looking displea-sed with Theo and
rolled his eyes. “With Elisia, where do you think?”
“He’s coming to help me prepare for the match.” I added
quic-kly. I only had around thirty minutes to get re-ady
because of their arguments, I could’t afford lose
Theo stepped forward suddenly, towering over my small
figure. I had to crane my n£¢k to meet his gaze.
“plea-se tell me, do you nee-d help changing clothes or
stretching your lim-bs?” He questioned, scoffing at the
absurdity of his question.
“So why does he nee-d to be there?”
“For emotional support and to help me prepare
“He can do both right here, right now.”
“What’s your fv¢king problem? I’m just accompanying
her in a unfamillar place.” Jay spoke up, gritting his teeth.
Theo’s eyes flashed with annoyance when he heard him
“My problem is your disobe-dience.”
I sighed loudly, letting them know how restless I was
“Look, it’s fine. All I nee-d a ‘good luck’ and your belief in
me, and I’ll be fine.” I said to Jay, smiling at him.
“Are you sure you’ll be fine on your own?”
“Yes, she’ll be just fine without you.” Theo answered for
I s£nt him a glare to which he responsed with a grin that
s£nt my heart racing.
“You don’t have listen to him, just say what you want.”
Jay told me.
“I want to remind you Steel, that you’re on my territory.”
Theo expression darkened when he met Jay’s angry gaze.
“My pack, my rules!” He growled, ma-king Jay scowl.
A few seconds of silence went by.
“Listen, you can continue this row you’re having later.
Elisia only has twenty minutes to get re-ady because of
you two.” Kobi spoke up, sounding annoyed.
I s£nt him a grateful smile and started to walk away
before anyone could protest.
Not before Jay gave me a hvg and whispered, “Good
Luck. I always believe in you, you know that.”
Kobi gave me thumbs up and a small smile, lifting my
mood once more.
I walked towards the building that had a hvge ‘A’ on it
and entered it quic-kly.
Twenty to minutes to get re-ady?
Okay, I can do this.
I opened the door to my given room and looked around.
There was a full dark brown leather, warrior outfit
hanging on a clothing rail, like I expected. I couldn’t bring
my own because of this pack’s polices, but I had a fitting
done so it should fit me well.
The room also had an ensuite bathroom to use after the
fight since you can get pretty dirty and sweaty.
I took the fighting outfit and entered the bathroom,
which luckily had a large mirror. I sli-pped into the outfit
easily and Zi-pped it up, glad that it fit like a glove.
I opted for the two-piece Sk-irt and t©p kit when I went to
my fittings. I was about to chose the full length [email protected]
version, but I tried it on and disliked the material they
used. It was way too restrictive for me.
The Sk-irt wasn’t too ti-ght to cause restrictiveness nor was
too loose to [email protected] around and be annoying. A pair of safety
shorts were sewn into the Sk-irt so I’d feel secure and
don’t flash anyone.
The t©p looked amazing, the design was so different to
what I was used to. The stitching was silver and was
cleverly used to decorate the leather. The t©p consisted
of three layers with one of the layer being seperate to the
rest. It was sleeveless, which I liked.
The boots they provided was of the same make of the
ones I usually use. They’re perfect to fight in, light and
airy yet ha-rd enough to withstand a hundred matches.
Now all that was left was it’s matching belt that held
weapons of various different knifes. Knowing it wasn’t
required in this fight, I didn’t bother stra-pping it on.
I sighed at the state of my hair, looking at the pathetic
bun I tried to do in the car. To be fair, I did it in a full
moving vehicle without a mirror.
I took my hair out of it’s ‘bun’ and neatly tied it up in a
real bun. This time really ma-king sure it won’t come
undone and taking every little bit of hair out my face. I
took the spare hair ties that were on my wrist and used it
to secure it even more.
I took a de-ep breath in and then let it out.
I was re-ady.
I walked out the bathroom and hurried to my backpack
to take my phone out. Looking at the time, I had ten
minutes to stretch and warm up.
I immediately went into my usual stretching routine to
warm up my muscles. It took around five minutes to
complete and starting to do little aerobic exercises to
bring my heart rate up.
Warming up before any kind of physical activity
decreases the chance any kind of injury. Although
injuries heal pretty fast, they’re really annoying.
Personally, I warm up because it ensures I perform at my
I was impressed with how mobile I was in this warrior
Just as I finished an aerobic exercise, there was a loud
knock on the door.
I approached the door and opened it, revea-ling a man I
“You re-ady?” He asked, giving me a reas-suring smile.
“As re-ady as I’ll ever be.”
So it’s finally time for the long awaited match,
who’s up for the next chapter?
