Alpha Asher novel By Jane Doe chapter 4
I stayed on the couch wallowing in my pain until the smell of dinner lifted my spirits. My grandma was cooking again and as much as my Dad protested I could tell he had missed her cooking.

We sat around the table eating dinner and exchanging stories. Dad wanted to know all about what I had gotten into while I was gone.

“So you already finished high school?” Sean asked, I could tell he was somewhat jealous. Sean graduated a year ago at the age of 18. While I was home schooled, he was forced to go to the local public school.

“Yup, I officially graduated.” I teased, sticking my tongue out at him.

My Dad smiled at us as we bickered, “Now only one more year to go and you can find your mate.” My Dad winked at me. My nineteenth birthday wasn’t for a couple months now.

From eighteen every werewolf is able to sense their mate. That is, if they’re within sniffing distance. Though I haven’t.

“Jeez, can you imagine that. Her mate is gonna have to put up with a lot.” Sean smirked at me.

I rolled my eyes at him, “I’m definitely not going to make it easy on him.”

“So, who the hell trained you while you were gone? Alpha’s been here for a week and I haven’t seen anyone able to keep up with him.” Sean frowned, obviously interested in my trainer.

Me and my grandma met eyes just for a second.

“It didn’t feel like I was keeping up with him.” I shrugged, wincing at my sore shoulder.

“You definitely were. Everyone else got pummeled bloody.” Sean cringed. “He made each of us fight him one on one to see what were capable of.”

“So that means he wont be my partner tomorrow?” I asked cheerfully. My dread about tomorrow was dissipating by the second.

“I guess not.” Sean shrugged, “Now tell me, whose your trainer?”

Stifling a nervous giggle, I replied “Oh just grandma’s neighbor. He’s really skilled in jujitsu and stuff.” I shrugged as if it weren’t a big deal.

I shot my grandma a sly look and she winked back at me.

“Do you have any plans for the weekend, Lola?” My Dad asked in between bites.

Tomorrow was Friday, leaving Saturday and Sunday training-free.

“Mm, not really. I don’t exactly have friends here anymore.” I shrugged. In fact, I hadn’t had any friends all year. My only company had been grandma, Chris, and the employee’s of the supermarket we would often go to.

I didn’t feel the need to surround myself with people anymore.

“You could always talk to Breyona y’know.” Sean shrugged as if it weren’t a big deal.

I sighed and bit my lip, “I don’t know about that. She’s probably still mad at me, I know I would be.”

Breyona was one of my closest friends, but when Tyler and I started dating I set her to the side. Tyler had his own group of friends that didn’t care for Breyona and like an idiot I chose them over her.

“I wouldn’t be so sure about that,” Sean shrugged “I talked to her during practice and she asked how you had been. She said she felt terrible about what happened between you and Tyler.”

“Really, she said that?” I felt myself smile in spite of everything, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad to talk to her.

“She did. It’s been a year since then, Lola. She might’ve moved on from the past.” Sean shrugged.

Training had ended and after some weary glances in our direction, everyone either headed to the locker rooms or out the main door. He gave me a strange, speculating look and nodded once.

“Much better.” He grunted, showing none of the signs of pain I had hoped for.

“Your anger makes you stronger.” Alpha Asher pointed out, his honey eyes had gold flecks swimming within them.

Unable to hold the words back, I smirked. “Thanks, I was thinking about you.”

Before Alpha Asher could respond I ran to the locker room. All of the girls were clearing out rapidly and I grabbed the clean clothes from my bag.

I cursed, noticing I had forgotten to grab a regular bra. I slipped my sweat soaked sports bra off and slipped a t-shirt on. I swapped my work-out shorts for a simple pair of jean shorts.

I slammed the locker shut and turned around, nearly toppling over.

Alpha Asher stood a few inches away from me. His cold stare made me gulp.

I felt my back hit the lockers as Alpha Asher took a step forward.

“Do you get a kick out of being disobedient?” His voice was quiet and rough. His eyes swirled with gold, making them even more mesmerizing.

I took a slow breath, noticing how good he smelled. Husky from training yet earthy. The smell of sweat and cologne mixed to create something entirely new.

I smirked up at him, hoping he couldn’t hear my rapid heartbeat. “I get a kick out of a lot of things. Being disobedient is just a personality trait of mine.”

“You will obey your Alpha.” Alpha Asher snapped, and I resisted the urge to roll my eyes.

“Don’t you dare, Lola.” Maya snapped, knowing what I was about to say.

“And if I don’t?” I teased, keeping my eyes locked on the golden flecks that swirled in his orbs.

“Oops, too late.” I snickered at Maya.

“If he kills us I’m never talking to you again.” Maya growled.

Alpha Asher took another step forward and I could feel his chiseled abdomen against my chest.

I found myself wanting to look down at his lips, and instantly rejected the idea. Now wasn’t the time to act like a dog in heat. I was playing with fire and I needed my wits.

I felt my nips stiffen as they brushed against Alpha Asher’s abdomen and I resisted the urge to cringe. My stupid body was reacting in a way I hadn’t expected.

Alpha Asher’s gaze never left my own, but I was almost positive he could feel my hardened nips grazing against him.

“Don’t test my patience, Lola.” Alpha Asher snapped, but I held my ground.

For a second I worried I had pushed him too far, but not a single one of my instincts thought he was going to hurt me. For whatever reason, I felt safe. That thought didn’t make me magically like Alpha Asher though. I knew who I was toying with, and sooner or later it may come back and bite me.

I tried not to freak out as I realized how close he was to me. I could feel his breath fanning my face.

“My apologies, Alpha.” I smirked, batting my eyelashes.

His eyes had progressively gotten more gold, and I let out a fast breath when he turned away and stormed out of the locker room.

“You got lucky.” Maya huffed.

“I don’t know about that.” I mused. “He didn’t seem like he was going to hurt us.”

After taking a few much needed moments to calm my hammering heart, I left the locker room and headed outside.
