ALPHA 1 x 1 Tayssi & ProfessorNv "Raquel!" a man's voice shouted from just outside the door. She groaned loudly, turning over and pressing her pillow against her ears as she grunted, "go away!" however, she knew it was futile. She heard the door being opened and she gripped her pillow in a fist, sleep pressing on her consciousness. The person came up to the side of her bed and prodded her ribs with a finger, "wake up already, it's 9 o'clock!" he demanded with an impatient huff. "Go away, Ollie!" Raquel practically snarled as she flipped over and hit him square in the head with her pillow. Yet, he simply chuckled and then pulled the blanket off of her. She opened her eyes into slits and looked up at Ollie with his tanned skin, honey brown hair and pale blue eyes. With a wide yawn, she pushed herself into a sitting position, stretching one arm high above her head, the other rubbing her eyes. She shifted on her bed and stood up, shouldering past Ollie and going to her closet. She grabbed a pair of black tights, light blue denim short shorts and the first top she got her hands on - which happened to be a navy blue tank top with white writing that said 'ASK SOMEONE WHO CARES!'. She had a quick shower, cleaned her teeth and brushed her hair, grunting as the brush met some stubborn knots. Placing the brush down, she put her chain cuff earring on, running her fingers lightly over the short hair just above her ear - pretty much short enough to be considered shaved. Shoving her clothes on, she stepped into her room again to see her bed was now neatly made and Ollie was lounging on top of it, staring at his phone and tapping away at the screen. "Well, come on then," Raquel urged. The man glanced over at her before he sighed and flung his hands up dramatically, "but I was talking to a smoking hot dude!" he complained and she merely raised a brow before she turned and left the room, her best friend soon coming up beside her. "Anything planned for today?" Raquel asked but he shook his head. "Not so far," he replied honestly. When they came to the kitchen, Raquel grabbed some blueberries from the fridge and Ollie grabbed some strawberries. He put one near her nose and she scrunched up her face. She watched as he shrugged before popping it into his mouth and she made a gagging sound in response. He merely grinned at her. "Gross," she muttered under her breath before she strolled to the front door and stepped outside. She inhaled deeply, enjoying the scent of fresh air. Off to the side, her mother was tending to the garden, her pale red hair appearing even lighter in the sunlight. She looked up, her blue hazel eyes landing upon the pair and she smiled warmly. "Morning, honey. Morning, Oliver," she said before she continued with her gardening. Raquel flashed a smile and walked over to her and gave her a give kiss on the cheek, "morning," she greeted before she left, her friend close on her heels. "Any idea what Jackson and Lark are doing at the moment?" Raquel asked Ollie and he shot her a 'Really, Raquel?' look. "What?" she asked, confused. "You really forgot?" he inquired and she merely waited for an answer, "they left yesterday with Alpha Bryce and Beta Bentley to do some sort of business with another pack," he told her and her eyes widened and she tapped a fist on her open palm. "That's right!" Raquel exclaimed and then looked at Ollie and reached up to mess up his neatly styled hair and said, "where would I be without you?" as he cursed her loudly and tried to neaten his hair out. Raquel spent most of the day with Ollie and they finally parted ways around 3. Running a hand through her wavy hair, she looked around, wondering what exactly she should do today. She could go for a run in Yellowstone National Park, but she didn't really feel like doing so at that moment. Stephanie was away for the week, so she couldn't go and annoy her. She could go harass Justin, but even that didn't seem appealing. She didn't want to deal with his crap today. Sighing heavily, she crouched down to the ground, elbows resting on her knees ans she ran her hands over her face. Right there in the middle of the street. People passed her, giving her odd looks, but she ignored them. She was trying to think. And yet, the young woman came up empty. She could not think of anything at all. Frustrated, she bounced to her feet and strode through town, determined to find something to do. After half hour, she just about gave up, when she almost walked right into Justin. She stopped abruptly, and looked up at her Alpha's son. He stood at 5'11' with tanned skin, a thick build that stated he worked out in the gym more than knew how to actually fight, he short sandy brown hair that had just recently been shaved. His grey eyes stared down at her in mild surprise. "Well, if it isn't Little Rocky," he taunted with a smirk. Little Rocky. The nickname Justin has had for her since she moved to America when she was 6. Sure, she was fine with being called Rocky - many people called her that. But when Justin called her that, it annoyed her. And when he added 'Little' in front of it, it really ticked her off. She glared up at him. "Buzz of, Dumbass," she growled at him, folding her arms across her chest. He looked down at her, not moving, "Where's your little lapdog, Ollie? He's usually not too far from you," he remarked with a sneer. "Jeez, you're so annoying! It's not like I had to spend every waking moment with him!" Raquel complained, pushing past him. He spun and gripped her forearm, stopping her. "Where are you going so soon, Little Rocky?" he teased. Raquel took a deep breath and looked at the man. "Justin, let me go. Now. Or so help me, you're going to wish your Daddy was here to help you," she threatened, shifting on her feet, more than ready to make good on her threat. He stared at her for a long moment before he released his grip on her arm. Raquel quickly turned and strode away, willing herself to calm down. She could feel her wolf stirring just beneath her skin. Shaking her head, she decided she needed to cool her head. She turned and made her way outside of town and through a sort of forest. Stepping past the tree line, she stared at the magnificent blue lake before her. The same lake that had created both great memories and terrifying memories. Memories that she had nightmares of even now. Scrunching up her nose at her negative thoughts, she sat down, leaning against a tree that was well away from the water. The sound of the animals and birds was relaxing. She knew if she stayed here long enough, she would definitely calm down.
