I grabbed her arm tightly as I pulled her struggling form to our room with me. I kicked the door shut and then pulled her across the room and forced her to bend over the small dining table. I grabbed both her wrists and held her arms behind her back so she couldn't move.
"I told you I will punish you if you use your powers to hurt someone again and I'm going to do just that. You put six people in danger today. Too strikes for each which totals to twelve. And thirteen to twenty because I'm fucking pissed that you disobeyed me,?again. Count." I brought my palm down on her ass hard, reddening it instantly.
"No," she growled and started squirming under my grip. "I did nothing wrong."
I brought my hand down harder on her other ass-cheek. "Count."
She gritted her teeth but I smelled her arousal in the air. And then I felt her anger for being wet. Good. I growled. She should not be enjoying this.
"Count Avalyn." I snarled, hitting her harder than before. "I'm mad enough to want to belt you." I brought my palm down on her ass again.
"Four." She gritted.
I spanked both her cheeks. "Start over," I spanked again.
"One." She grunted. I rained down spanks on her ass, going harder with each one. She stubbornly only grunted in the starting but progressively screamed when I hit her harder. The sound of skin slapping against skin echoed in the otherwise silent room that followed with her counts.
I spanked her again on an already sore spot and she screamed, "eight." But then gritted her teeth, as if she was angry that she was even reacting at all.
That's when it set in. "You're still not sorry, are you?"
She shook her as much as she could with her cheek pressed against the table.
I released her and took a couple of steps back. There is no point in punishing her if she isn't sorry.
"Don't you realise what you have done?" I hissed at my silver haired mate as I paced around in my bedroom.
"I realise that I have done nothing wrong," she smarted, pissing me off further. "I would do it again if I have to. No one should suffer like that." She pushed herself off of the table. "Go on and finish off the punishment. I will take it, but I will not take Natalia being treated like that."
"It's not suffering if it's her choice. You can't help someone who doesn't need your help. Because nothing is wrong." I said in a strained voice, trying hard to control my anger.
"But they are doing it for me!" She sounded pissed too.
Why the fuck does she not understand me? We never had this problem before. And the worst part was that I couldn't feel her wolf. In fact, I could hardly ever feel her wolf when her hair was silver—when her magic was potent.
I'm done arguing with her.
"Kneel," I gritted. Her eyes flashed at me in anger and I flashed her my canines in return. Slowly and reluctantly, she lowered herself to the ground, wincing when her sore ass touched her heels.?
"You will stay here, like this, without moving until you are ready to apologise. I don't care if it takes an hour or the entire fucking day. I want you to think about what you did and tell me about it after you apologise. Do you understand?" I growled.
"I understand," she echoed, her voice petulant.
"Understand, what?" I demanded, my voice hard and cold.
"Master. I understand Master," she replied, her voice blank now.
I left her there and went for a shower to get rid of the black smudges of smoke covered my skin. I thought of calling Ava to get a shower

Alpha and Luna are equal, we were not built like that. That's just our way of thinking because of modern times and forward thinking. The Alpha was genetically built to rule a pack and protect it and the Luna was built to support him, nurture the pack and give heirs. That was what biology came down to at the end of the day. During olden times, the Alpha and Luna weren't equals. Alpha was considered as the single strongest leader of the pack. Which is still true, when push comes to shove, Luna bows down and submits to
