Outcast: The Alpha King's Beloved

Chapter 29: Valentine's Day 

Anthony's POV: 

Just now, on our way to the hospital, I had secretly observed Jennifer.

She had been looking around excitedly, as if she was fascinated by the bustling street.

I knew that she had a hard time while living in the Dark River Pack.

Back then, she probably didn't have the chance to experience the simple enjoyment of wandering around the streets.

I wanted to give her at least a bit of the happiness that she missed out on.

"Let's go."

I grabbed her hand and led her out of the hospital and into the busy street.

For a moment, Jennifer seemed to be stunned, because her hand was stiff in mine, but then she hooked her little finger onto mine.

Her movements were careful and cautious, with a trace of girlish shyness.

When I glanced sideways and saw the flush on her pretty face, I couldn't help but smile.

"You want to be with her,"Zane pointed out.

"Anthony, how long will you go on deceiving yourself? You have fallen in love with her.Just accept your mate.Hurry up! Don't hesitate."

"Can you stop nagging at me?"I retorted impatiently.

"I don't like listening to nonsense."

"Don't lie to yourself,"Zane sneered.

"Don't you want to kiss her? Don't you want to make love to her? Don't you have any desire for her? Think about what you did last night!"

"What did I do last night?"

I asked my wolf in confusion.

I really couldn't remember what had happened last night.

"I also lost my consciousness after you were shot.But you were naked and alone in the cave with her.What else could you have done? Think it over."

"Shut up!"

Unable to stand Zane's words anymore, I blocked him out of my mind.

I couldn't even remember how many times I had shut out Zane like this after meeting Jennifer.

Thanks to Zane's annoying words, the possibilities of what could have happened last night popped into my head, making me restless again, but I managed to suppress those thoughts.

Holding Jennifer's hand, I walked down the street among the throng of passers-by.

Both sides of the street were lined with shops, where vendors were selling all kinds of little trinkets.

I looked at the werewolves on the street and found that most of them were walking around in pairs.I was slightly stunned.

It was only then that I realized today was Valentine's Day.

I stole a glance at Jennifer, who was staring at the windows of the shops with undisguised yearning in her eyes.

There was a flower shop on the right side of the street.

When we passed by, the owner of the shop stopped me.

"Sir, you and this beautiful lady are a perfect match.Today is Valentine's Day.Would you like to buy her a bunch of flowers?"

Hearing this, Jennifer smiled awkwardly.

"Sorry, we are not"she began, trying to explain.
