Alpha Bully

By: Sam Crescent

Trey’s cheeks went red. “You’re bullied here?”

“It’s, erm, it’s a given. I’m overweight, and it’s not really—” Scarlett stopped feeling her own cheeks heat. “I don’t actually know what to say.”

“May I sit and eat with you?”

She nodded.

“Where are your other friends?”

Staring down at her sandwich, Scarlett started to lose what little appetite she had. “I’ve not really got the best track record with friends.”

No one wanted to hang out with her in case the bullying turned around on her.

“Well, I’d love to be your friend.”

Looking up, she saw he was smiling back.

“Are you sure? They could bully you as well.”

“I can handle myself, believe me.”

Chuckling, she closed her book and stared back at him. “Okay, if you want to risk it.”

“For you, I will.”

Heat bloomed inside her. It was nice to have someone who wasn’t calling her names.

Chapter Four

Marshall stopped outside of his locker room. Everyone was charging toward the lunchroom. Hunger filled the air, but something caught Marshall’s attention. All of his senses went on high alert at the smell of fresh roses, the earth, and home.


His wolf came roaring to the surface, demanding he find her.

“Whoa, Marshall, what the fuck, man?” Jack put a hand on his shoulder.

Gritting his teeth, Marshall struggled against the need coursing through him. His body was burning up. The need to claim was stronger than ever before. This couldn’t be happening, and yet it was.

“She’s here,” Marshall said.


Closing his eyes, Marshall blew out a breath. The scent of his mate was fading. Where was she? Who was she?


“Holy fuck, for real?”


“Shit, do you want me to call your father?”

Marshall shook his head. He didn’t want his father here. It wouldn’t help. His wolf would calm the moment he found the woman meant for him, the woman who’d calm the beast inside him.

“No. I’ve got to find her.”

“Shit, I hope it’s not a teacher. That would be totally messed up.”

Laughing, Marshall slammed his locker closed. He’d find his mate and everything would be okay.

“Let’s go and find her.”

“You’re going to sniff her out like a dog?”

“I’ve got to do this on my own. Get us some food.”

“Are you sure?”

Marshall didn’t want to share this moment with anyone else. This was all him, and the thought of having Jack there didn’t ease him at all.


“I can’t wait to see who it is.”

He waited for his friend to leave before he picked up the floral scent once again.

Go. Find her. Claim her.

Marshall came to a stop at the doors leading outside. The moment he went outside he was at risk of losing her.

She’s out there. Go now!

His wolf pounced, and Marshall walked outside.

The scent increased as he made his way around the building. When he saw a blond guy around his age sitting in front of the tree, Marshall froze. There was no fucking way his mate was male.

Marshall would rather die than fuck another man.

Then he heard her voice. It was soft, delicate, and belonged to his true mate. He closed his eyes as he basked in the sound and scent of his mate. She was leaning against the tree. His cock thickened, ready to mate. Stepping closer, Marshall felt his whole world collide, explode, implode, shatter, and fall around him.

Underneath the tree sat his mate, Scarlett Fields. The one girl he’d spent a great deal of time bullying. Was this the reason he was obsessed with her? His body had known before him that she was destined to be his mate? She was oblivious to his presence, smiling at the mystery guy. He didn’t like it. His wolf growled, clawed, and spat wanting to kill the man who was making their mate smile.

Scarlett is my mate.

He stood reeling from the knowledge. There had always been something about her over the years, but he’d never understood what it was. The scent that had clung to her had always been nice. This time, his wolf senses were addicted. Her overweight figure no longer seemed wrong to him. She would be able to handle him, take his cock inside her warm body. Scarlett was built to be his mate, to handle his wolf.
