"I can't accept you as my mate. I only thought it fair to come and..." She began to say after a long drawn out silence. Her rambling was cut short by my laughter. I hadn't meant to laugh. It just kind of burst out, and I couldn't bring myself to stop. I couldn't even explain why I was laughing. Clutching my stomach, I looked up to see Izzy's face turning a bright shade of red, not out of embarrassment but anger. I swear if it were possible steam would have been coming out of her ears.copyright protection70PENANA0HpsyszaVB

"Why are you laughing?" She demanded, stomping her foot, like a small child throwing a tantrum. Her actions were only serving to make me laugh more.copyright protection70PENANAWlz9LlcUrr

"I--It's just," I finally managed to get out, my laughter subsiding. "Just that we can't be mates."copyright protection70PENANA178DAbunUr

"Excuse me? Are you saying I don't know how to recognize my own mate?!?" She yelled as she started to make her way towards me.copyright protection70PENANAEV83nHwXRs

"No, it's just that--"copyright protection70PENANAyNN8Xzt9tV

"That what? Just because you're an alpha, I can't possibly be your mate?" She seethed, cutting me off.copyright protection70PENANAAv2J8DUD0P

"No, what I mean is--"copyright protection70PENANA4FKdI8Uf5L

"I'll prove it to you," she said cutting me off again, reaching up to grab my hand. Though it was nothing like the pure electricity I felt with Olivia, I tried to hide my shock when I felt a tingling sensation from her touch. Looking up at Izzy, I could see the effect that our contact was having on her. Her once gray eyes were slowing becoming black. As if on cue, our gazes met. She quickly yanked her hand from mine and turned away. I shook my head in disbelief. There had to be another explanation.copyright protection70PENANAHEzvMx5fGz

"Look, we can't possibly be mates," I explained one last time, sighing in resignation. I could feel the all too familiar pain closing in on me.copyright protection70PENANAbh4d0cRVQR

"Why not?" She asked, turning to face me. Her arms were wrapped around her body as if to shield herself from what I was about to say. Turning to look at a picture on my desk, I allowed my fingers to gently trace the edges of the frame. Olivia's beautiful face stared back at me. This beautiful angel had been my mate; nothing would ever make me doubt that. I looked back up at Izzy, with unshed tears in my eyes.copyright protection70PENANAKUwu7fC2vI

"Because my mate died," I whispered. She raised her shaky hand to cover her open mouth and began to shake her head in disbelief.copyright protection70PENANAOcmnI8UNoB

"That can't be true," she whispered though her tone told me she knew I wasn't lying. Without another word she darted out of my office, slamming the door behind her.copyright protection70PENANAmzTrNUEEPu

I am not really sure how long I sat there with a dumbfounded look on my face, just staring the closed door. It wasn't until Griffin walked in to get some paperwork from my desk, that I finally snapped out of it.copyright protection70PENANAwzo34wiHyO

"What's wrong?" Griffin asked taking in my expression. I turned to look at him, but when I opened my mouth to say something, nothing came out. I sat there for a couple of moments just staring at him with my mouth agape.copyright protection70PENANApn0MKJUFwj

"Dude you're scaring me. What's going on?" He asked again as he slowly approached me.copyright protection70PENANAhTSakF4YkU

"Uh, nothing. Have you seen Izzy?"copyright protection70PENANAtQtSTyocfX

"Izzy who?" He asked confused.copyright protection70PENANA0Fk1r5LlLh

"The damn she-wolf," I said getting frustrated. I needed to talk to her, to make sense of this whole situation. Obviously, I knew she wasn't my mate, but for some reason, she was convinced I was her's. I also wanted to understand why, even though she was sure we were mates, she planned to reject me so quickly. Mate rejection was rare if not unheard of. It was painful for both wolves, and sentences each of them to a life of loneliness.copyright protection70PENANAE2bxdvdiuy

"I don't know. Do you need me to look for her?"copyright protection70PENANAcYoGQiefvt

"No, it's fine. Never mind, did you need something?" I asked still a bit distracted.copyright protection70PENANAdw8yyADjWo

"Not really. I was just going to ask if you wanted to go for a run." Griffin was a very hands on beta. Even though he trusted our guards, he still liked to do runs once in a while. He was more of an alpha than I was at the moment. I hate to think what I would do without him.copyright protection70PENANABBrM8FimXN

"Yeah, just let me drop off a few files in my room." I knew if I didn't leave them there, I wouldn't get around to reading them anytime soon. As we walked down the hall, Griffin suddenly came to a stop. It took me a moment to realizes he wasn't still beside me.copyright protection70PENANAU9LiPBB4Q7

"You finally did it. Good for you," he said sounding slightly excited. I turned to look at him.copyright protection70PENANAy3DGBchfvd

"What are you talking about?" But before he could answer, I realized the door to Olivia's "everything room was slightly ajar. Walking slowly towards the open door, I paused at the entrance. I still smell like my Olivia, but something was off about it. Like it was mixed with something else.copyright protection70PENANAE6O6TWLbiI

Finally, I mustered the courage to push the door open, my hand shaking. Everyone knew this room was off limits, not that many people came to the pack house anymore. Stepping into her room, I realized it was different from the last time I had been in here. Griffin was right, she had painted it again. The walls were no longer light purple with intricate silver swirls. They were now dark blue with stars and moons. Tears started pooling in my eyes at the realization that she had been turning it into a nursery.copyright protection70PENANAYdSKvIl7Mc

"What the hell are you doing in here?" Griffin spat. Looking in the direction he was facing, I realized the reason the scent was off.copyright protection70PENANAekfS1R4i6A

"Izzy?"copyright protection70PENANAwLGkRzhCLA
