“I, Lucas Gray, Alpha the Dark moon pack, denounce Sophia Roman as a member of this pack!”
As soon as he said that, I began to feel a burning pain in my chest, making me weaker than I was already. I could feel the pack’s link severing. I feel empty. I am no more in a pack. Am now a rogue.
“No! no please don’t do this to me.” I went on my knees shouting and crying but nobody was paying attention to me.
“If you agree with my decision to denounce Sophia as a member of the pack, say I do”. The Alpha carried on.
“I do!” Everyone in the pack shouted except for my two friends Lily and Elsa who were busy crying at the side. There is nothing they could do. After all, they are just omegas like me.
"What kind of pack is this?" I wondered. It’s not as if I committed any crime at all. The only excuse they have for banishing me is that I shifted late. "Like is this even legal?" I questioned myself.
I looked up to my parents who were seated beside the Alpha in disbelief, I can’t believe that they will do this to me. What kind of parents were they? But what will I expect? They have been ignoring me since I turned fourteen and did not shift like every other werewolf was supposed to.
“You have twenty minutes to leave this pack or face the consequences rogue!. The gamma of the pack rudely said to me as he kicked me in my stomach.
I scream as I feel the pain. But I knew if I keep lying down there, they will carry out their threats and actually harm me. So With the little strength that I have left, I got up and did the only thing a rogue knows how to do.
It’s been two days since I have been running non-stop. I was tired both physically, emotionally and mentally.
Being a rogue means that you can be attacked or killed by any pack, vampires or hunters or other rogues.
Every pack thinks every rogue is bad. That is basically because before you will get banned from your pack you must have committed an unforgivable sin. I used to think that way too but I guess there is something wrong just like me.
As for Vampires, those blood suckers use rogues as their prey and witches use them for experiments. The hunters, because they know that they can attack a wolf pack without asking for war, settle on hunting rogues. Although they sometimes make attacks on packs.
Being a new rogue means that you can be easily attacked by the older rogues.
I am tired of running and decided to take a rest. I sat under a tree and reflected on my life since I turned fourteen.
Ever since I clocked fourteen and did not shift, I became a target to everyone in the pack and a disgrace to my family.
When I didn't shift, my family started ignoring me, and the rest of the pack mistreated me. Beat me, hurt me, make me scream in pain. Finally, the day before yesterday was my 18th birthday, and I unexpectedly shifted. My parents finally gave me their attention, but it all changed when my shift was finished. I shifted into an omega. My family considered that as very shameful and disgraceful considering that they were the Beta lineage of the pack.
I was an omega. Nothing better than dirt on their shoes.
And now I am a rogue, an easy prey in the eyes of others.
I don’t even know how long I will survive this.
I knew that I could probably die any moment from now.
Still lost in my thoughts, I didn’t notice that two people were approaching me.
“ well! Well! What do we have here!”
I raised my head and lo and behold two dirty men looking at me with hunger in their eyes. Looking at their appearance, I knew that these men were rogues. Probably been a rogue for a long time.
Well this is it, I thought to myself. This is how I am going to die. I haven’t even met my mate yet, I thought to myself as I began to cry. I cried for my unfortunate life. Oh! Where have I gone wrong? I can’t remember ever offending the moon goddess at any point in time of my life, so I wonder how come I am so unlucky.
First of all, I shifted late, secondly when I finally shifted, I shifted into an omega, an abomination to a family who all shifts into a beta from generation to generation. Thirdly, I was cast out of my pack and became a rogue and lastly, am about to die after being a rogue for just two days.
The men kept coming closer to me, I know in my heart that I can’t fight them after all I am just a poor little omega. But I decided that I wasn’t going down without a fight. I looked around me and saw a stick lying close to me and I decided to use it as my weapon. As soon as one man got to me, with the little strength I had left me I took the stick and struck him with it and then I stood up to run.
Well I managed to run a few steps before someone grabbed me from behind and fling me to the trees. I had forgotten that the rogue was two in number.
I think my back is broken. I couldn’t even move if I wanted to. Everybody and everything has their limit and well I guessed I have reached mine. I just laid and waited for my fate.
“You bitch you think you can get away from us, by the time we are done with you, then you will know”.
The rogues came on to me and just as they were about to touch me, we heard a growl coming from behind us.
Looking back I saw three mighty wolves making their way towards us. The men who were attacking me where suddenly shivering in fear.
The last thing I remember before going unconscious was someone whispering into my eyes.
“ we got you, don’t worry”.
