Her Cold-Hearted Alpha Chapter 62 by desirenovel
The Mating Ball
Two hours later , Raven and Raihana stepped back to admire their work . ” Ok …. I think she looks like a damn bombshell . ” Raven said with satisfaction . ” That lip colour is definitely hers ; it just adds to it , doesn’t it ? ” Raihana added . ” Yes , girl ! This babe’s going to have every unmated wolf drooling .. ” Not to mention most women wear long gowns to the ball … ” Raihana said smirking . ” Damn , I wish we had like a camera to see what’s happening out there .
” Raven said . I raised an eyebrow . ” I am here , listening to you two as if I’m not . Can I see ? ” I asked , feeling a bit nervous about what they’d done to me . ” Sure ! ” Raihana said . She turned me slowly towards the mirror and I stared at myself in shock . I looked … stunning ! Regal even …
Raven had styled my hair into a very high , stylish up – do , leaving a few long , loosely curled strands to frame my face . As for my face , Raihana had done a heavy smoky eye in glittering golds and blacks . With some thick black lashes that weren’t too heavy but enhanced my long ones . My face was bronzed and glowed to match the shimmering bronzer I had applied to my body . She had painted my lips a matt deep pink that really did suit my skin tone .
It was the only pop of colour from my otherwise very bronzed golden look . My heart pounded as I looked at myself . I prayed I found my mate tonight because I looked amazing , if I do say so myself . I felt a pang of sadness behind my smile as I remembered Alejandro … I will not think of him , not tonight not ever . ” So … ” Raihana said , jumping on her toes . ” I love it , thank you girls .
” I said , giving them both a smile . I picked up the large statement earrings I’d brought and put them on . The final thing was the delicate moon necklace . After Raven hooked it on for me , I stood u p . Currently , I was only wearing the silk p . Currently , I was Ay wearing the silk bodysuit that pushed my breasts right up . ” Ok , let’s get you into that dress . ” Raven said . With a lot of their help , I managed to get into it . The girls untangled a few strands from the bottom of the dress , before finally they were satisfied .
I then slipped on my 2 -inch heels , a size that didn’t strain my ankle too much . ” Perfume left and you’re done ! ” Raihana said , reaching for my Armani Diamonds fragrance . ” I said . I didn’t want my ” One spray . scent clouded . ‘ Kiara , how long ? ” Dad’s voice came through the link . ” On my way . I gave both girls a tight hug before turning to the mirror and taking a final look at my dress that hugged my figure perfectly . Emphasising my curvy hips and thighs , slim waist and cleavage . ” Thank you , both of you . Honestly , I love my hair and my make up … Thank you . ”
My Thule und my ” Well , after seeing you , I’m seriously questioning my sexuality . ” Raven teased , tapping my ass . Raihana laughed . ” I don’t blame you . ” She said . I shook my head , amused at their antics . ” Well , all the best babe . ” ” Raven said . ” Good luck , I guess we may not see you tonight … Sooooo have fun ! ” Raihana added . ” Here , condoms . ” Raven said , holding out a box . I gave her a look . ” No thanks ! I’m due my period any day , s o no chance of getting pregnant .
” I said , amused . ” Oh , ok then , enjoy all his milky goodness . ” She replied with a smirk . ” Eww ! ” Raihana said , bursting into laughter . ” Honestly , I don’t even know if I’ll meet him tonight . And on top of that , who said I’m going to jump him ? ” I asked Raven looked at me incredulously ” Seriously ? With your track record you will . ” She said making me pout . The girl had a point … If I didn’t find my mate at least … No. Don’t think of him .
I pushed the thought of a certain man out o f my head and turned to the door , taking a deep breath . ” Well , Dad’s waiting for me , have fun . ” ” Say hi to the boys for me . ” Raven said . ” Let me know if any of you find your mate o k . ” I looked at her , knowing behind that casual demeanour she was nervous . ” I’ll text from Dad’s phone because I’m not taking mine .
” I replied . ” I’ll definitely video call with the boys ! ” ” Ok ! ” Raihana said ” Send pictures ! ” I left my room and made my way to the stairs , the light dazzling off the gems on my dress . I walked down the steps , seeing Dad standing at the bottom , looking handsome in a black tux . He looked up when he heard me . His frown softened as he looked me over . A soft smile crossed his lips , but I was shocked to see he Tooked almost … sad . ” How do I look ?
” ” Like a woman . ” He said , taking my hand and helping me down the last three steps . My heart skipped a beat as I smiled up at him . ” Thank you , Dad . So , how good do I look ? Almost as good as Mom ? ” I teased . He kissed my forehead softly . ” Tonight , I’d say you rival her . ” He said , caressing my cheek , that look of sadness still lingering in his eyes . ” Dad … You look upset .
” I said , despite the fact I was smiling at his compliment . I only wished I had been able to record it . ” Obviously , tonight might be the day I hand you over to another . I just hope he treats you like the Queen you are . ” @ ” Don’t worry Dad , I’m yours and Mom’s daughter . No one will mistreat me . I can handle myself and make their life hell if needed … ” I added defiantly . Dad smirked . ” Good . ” He said , offering me his arm as he led me out of the mansion .
Our ride was waiting for us . The extravagant mansion looked beyond amazing , lit up so brightly . Even the gardens were illuminated dazzlingly with hundreds of fairy lights and lanterns . ” Wow , it’s beautiful … ” I said breathlessly .. ” And a hundred times brighter than usual . Dad remarked . ” Courtesy of the King . ” A voice said from behind us . Dad and I turned to see Darien and Serena standing there , both were dressed smartly . Serena looked stunning in a pale peach gown .
Dad frowned at Darien’s comment as he scanned the garden . ” Hmm . ” He said . My heart skipped a beat . Could it be because of me ? It didn’t matter , he doesn’t care … Maybe he just wanted a change … ” You look beautiful , Kiara . ” Serena said as the four of us headed inside .
” Thank you , so do you . ” I replied with a smile . ” Where is Alejandro ? ” Dad asked . ” He won’t be attending … ” Darien said , looking uncomfortable . Dad’s frown only deepened . ” Why not ? ” He asked . ” I’m not sure . ” Darien said . Dad looked him in the eye . Although Dad was the stronger Alpha , Darien was an Alpha who had stepped down and was able to look Dad in the eye equally .
I wondered what that was about but I soon decided to forget Dad’s issue as we stepped inside the stunning entrance hall . People in gorgeous gowns and smart suits roamed around . A mix of scents and luxury wines filled my nose . My smile grew as I smelt two very familiar scents . ” Dad , I’m off . ” I said , letting go of his arm and hurrying ahead . I slipped through the crowds , ignoring the eyes that ran over me .
The murmurs that I was Alpha Elijah’s daughter followed me like a whisper in the wind . My smile grew as my eyes fell on two men . They stood side by side , Liam dressed in a grey suit and Damon in a deep navy . ” Guys ! ” I said , they both turned and I saw Damon give me a wistful smile . It seemed he had hopes that I’d be his mate . Pretending I didn’t see it , I walked over to them as Liam closed the gap between us and lifted me in his arms , hugging me tightly .
” Goddess , Kia ! I missed you . ” He said , making me smile in amusement . ” Aww , I would say I missed you too but I enjoyed my freedom . ” I teased . When he finally set me down I turned to Damon , giving him a tight hug too . He hugged me back and I felt Liam watching u s . I didn’t feel as awkward . Although it had only been a few weeks , it felt like it had been so much longer . Something about this pack … Alejandro … everything seemed so different .
” Not mates then ? ” Liam said . ” Nope . ” Now ” Damon said , with a small smile . you can rejoice . ” ” Hey , I wouldn’t have minded it . ” Liam said , now looking at me . ” Your aura … ” 11 ” It’s impressive . ” Damon said seriously . I shrugged . ” A lot has happened . ” ” Yeah , I know . It’s not been long but you seem … different . Like you’ve finally become a woman . ” Liam teased .
I had filled them both in over the group chat but seeing my aura was completely different then hearing about it . A familiar scent invaded my nose and I turned to see Rayhan , dressed in a black suit , walking over . I felt two pairs of eyes bore into me from behind and I knew they wondered if I had found my mate . I mouthed to Rayhan . ‘ Play along . ” He smirked , giving me a tiny nod as he looked me over . ” Mate .
” He said , with an intense look in his eyes , but I knew he was trying to hide his amazement . He stopped in front of me . ” Mate . ” I said before wrapping my arms around his neck .
” Damn . ” Damon said , shocked , ” Whoa really ? ” Liam said , also shocked , ” You’re lying . ” ” Why do you say that ? ” Rayhan asked , keeping his eyes on me . I was so close to bursting into laughter . ” I can sense it . ” Liam replied , shrugging . I giggled . ” Yeah , not mates . ” I said . ” You look amazing though . ” Rayhan said . ” Thank you . ” ” I want to see who gets Kiara … I’m guessing some Alpha in his early twenties . ” Liam said as Rayhan met them both with a hug .
” Gets ? Am I prize to be won ? ” ” Well , you do kind of look like a trophy right now . ” Damon teased and I glared at him . Somehow , that felt like the ice breaker between us . The other two men nodded in agreement and I rolled my eyes . I knew of the four of us I had the highest possibility of finding my mate , as women were often younger than the male by a few years in many cases .
Most males end up finding their mates in their early twenties , unlike the females , who often find theirs pretty soon after turning eighteen . ” Well , until we sniff our mates out , how about we get a drink ? ” Rayhan suggested . I looked around , looking at all the males . S o far , nothing out of the ordinary had caught my nose . ” Drinks sound good ! ” Damon said , motioning an omega waiter over . We all took a flute of champagne when I felt the sudden urge to look up .
I turned and looked around the vast hall . There was a balcony that spread across the entire length of the hall , leading to the second floor . I scanned it ; it was mostly empty apart from a few couples . Nothing out of the ordinary caught my eye .
” Kiara ? ” Damon asked concerned . ” You o k ? ” ” Yeah … ” I said , feeling a pair of eyes on me . My heart pounded as I spun around , seeing the shadow of someone move back . They were far too high up for me to catch a scent . ” Excuse me … ” I didn’t wait for a reply as I sped up , the urge to find that person overtaking me …
