Desdemona ''Des'' Winchester wants nothing to do with Melliford Academy. In fact, she's pretty sure her parents shipped her off to boarding school just to get her out of their hair. It's a move they'll come to regret if she has any say in the matter. Nothing humiliates posh folk like having a daughter sent home from the country's most esteemed educational institution.

Just flunking class isn't dramatic enough, though. Des plans to get booted in the most spectacular manner possible, just to make sure her parents' social circle will never let them live it down. Her scheming, unfortunately, encounters three roadblocks within the first week of class.

The first: Exie Quinnell, teacher's pet, whip-smart, and unreasonably attractive. Neither girl intended to end up on a project together, but their teacher deemed Des in need of a little... remediation.

The second: There are things about Melliford Academy that none of the teachers will talk about, even when pressed. Things that should be easy answers.

The third: The first student found dead with a folded paper dove perched on their chest.

A conflicted look in his eyes."I knew this would happen, but I told you, we have to wait-"He scoffed, interrupting me."I Caleb King, re-"Now, I interrupted him... with a kiss. I know I should not be doing this, but I have been looking for him for so long and I just needed to do this... At least once. A real kiss with my mate.I expected him to pull away but he put his hands on my lower back and pulled me closer to him. I could feel sparks and a happiness and tranquility invaded my body. It just felt right and I wanted more, but I knew how this would end. I felt the tears running down my cheeks. I stepped back, interrupting the kiss. He whimpered a little bit and for a second I saw adoration in his eyes, but he pushed it back, giving me a blank stare."I am sorry. I needed to do this. You can reject me now."He looked a little taken aback. "You were going to reject me. I just thought we both needed to experience this only once. You are the future Alpha, so I should not be the one to break the bond. Please do it now!" I do not why, but I wanted him to do it. After all, he was going to do it before and I did not want a kiss to change his mind."I Caleb King, reject you Anna Amores as my mate."I think I could hear my heart break in that second. "I Anna Amores, accept your rejection, Alpha, and I wish the best for you, always."I gave him an honest smile... And he left, without looking back...~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Persona - Rizwan x Dos (Ejen Ali Fanfic)

P/S : this my oldest fanfic and it is unedited so bear with the cringeness, alright? Whether it is a hero or an agent, anyone who is going undercover would have their own persona. - Like an author making their own characters. Their real personalities are hidden carefully, and only a few people knew who they are.This is a story about how the good guy and a villain bond a relationship and how they maintained their extraordinary lives smoothly. [all rights reserved. ejen ali belongs to WAU animation and if i did, this fanfic is canon hehe]
