The Seven Clans
An Omegaverse Romance
He found her caged.
He freed her for himself.
He claimed her like no other could.
In the six years since Corona fell the Omegas have been hiding. Trying to wait out the madness that
surrounds them, hoping peace will come again.
The peace they remember will never be.
Years of searching have led Baird to Auden. The first Omega any of the seven fractured clans has
encountered. He is determined to make her queen.
Her body is his from the beginning. Will he be able to win her heart?
Auden stifled a groan as she hoisted herself up
off the dirt floor of the cage.
Six long years of fevered pain had led to this.
Six years of willing herself not just to
endure her heat, but to embrace the wretched
misery it brought every four septemes.
A sliver of moon painted the night sky above.
Clouds would sweep past, erasing it from the inky
Laughter erupted from the campfire flickering in
the distance. A wicked, sneering cackling, like
adolescents laughing at a dirty joke.
The sound of it made her sick. Being there made
her sick. These days, living made her sick, it seemed.
Reaching for the comfort of distant memories,
shrouded by the fog of time, she tried to focus on
earlier days. Better days. Simpler times before
her body had begun betraying her, braying at her
to seek the release.
The night air smelled of smoke and wet leaves. A
foot kicked dirt into her face through wooden bars.
She winced, snorted, then spat, trying to clear
her mouth of filth. “Eat,” a voice said. A sprig
of Graten root fell at her feet.
Without looking up, Auden hugged her knees to her
chest. She recognized the voice and the leering
stare that went with it. Her eyes rose to the
lanky, drooling beta who ogled her day and night,
massaging his half-stiff erection and occasionally
spilling seed into the crate. “Or do you want some
of this instead?” A lecherous cackle gurgled out
of his throat.
Auden turned a bored stare to one side. He’d been
told not to touch her. Mud stained soles and birds
nest hair, she was still their prize.
The beta smirked. Letting go his cock to leave it
sagging between his legs he grabbed the bars,
leaned in and sniffed the air around her.
His grin faded to a feral snarl. “You’re in your
heat,” he hissed.
The idiot. She was hot even at night. Sweating
through her estrous, she reeked of need that
caused the betas to circle the crate staring at
her. They’d disappear only when Goren crawled out
of his tent to chase them back into the shadows.
They’d become just eyes peering at her through the
darkness, their leering keeping her from sleep.
She hadn’t slept in days.
The ugly beta leaned forward, his pale ribs
pressing against the crate, his hand falling to
his genitals again. “A little suck,” he begged.
His voice carried a lisp like a hissing snake.
Auden worked her tongue around her mouth,
gathering what spittle she could wring from her
parched lips and spat a thick glob of it at his feet.
His smirk returned. “Do it again.” His attempt at
growling was pathetic.
Auden turned her head as he resumed stroking
himself. She hugged her legs closer, denying him
the sight of any private flesh.
Six years of suffering in the wilderness only to
end up a slave. The thought, one that had come
often in the last septemes, caused her throat to
tighten. She clenched her jaw, choking back the
sorrow that threatened to consume her.
As the beta grunted towards release, Auden closed
her eyes. She sank into the darkest part of her
mind she could search out. The memories filtered
in. Memories of Corona. Of a life filled with hope
and purpose. Not the feral existence she was
A sadness settled through her. By all accounts it
was a shadow of the city it had been. But maybe,
if the Gods allowed it, if they had any mercy at
all, they would let her find her way back there.
Maybe there was still some semblance of
civilization left. So she could reclaim a shred of
the dignity she remembered.
The beta grunting toward release dragged her from
her thoughts. Then, from somewhere in the darkness
a different sound. A sound she hadn’t heard yet
coming from the trees.
Her eyes shot open, darting past the onanizing
male, scanning brush beyond to find the source.
“What was that?” One of the others stood behind
him, peering past the fire.
The male paused, then muttered something,
clutching harder at his crooked cock, nearly
finished with his filthy chore.
Auden’s ears pricked up. Her nostrils flared at
the sudden scent of something on the wind. Her
traitorous gut twisted, causing her to
clutch at her stomach. The scent, not one she’d
ever smelled, felt like it was tugging at her,
goading her to uncross her legs, display herself
and sniff at the air like an animal.
Raw skin, sweat, musk and power like
she’d never smelled. Power tearing through the
forest, ripping undergrowth to shreds as it bore
down on their position.
She felt it next. Through the ground, up through
her legs, to her very core. It twisted her
sideways causing her to fall and claw at the dirt.
The beta’s jerking stopped. He opened his eyes.
His jaw fell. Craning his neck to look over his
shoulder he couldn’t have seen the two powerful
hands settle on his shoulders before they hurled
him toward the fire like a broken twig. He landed
with a dull thud, kicking up a cloud of dust. His
mouth opened like a fish on land, still alive and
struggling to breathe.
The wind picked up, whistling in the branches
Auden’s skin prickled as a finger of cold terror
traced a line down her spine at what she saw.
Where the Beta had stood two eyes glared at her. A
wall of dense and muscled flesh towered over the
cage, hands curled into claws and ready. His very
posture demanded submission. His dark gaze
conveying there was no choice about it. Tilting
his head he grabbed the enclosure and sniffed the air.
Behind him the betas cowered, crawling back into
the shadows. Fear in their eyes even though his
back was to them. Their stares darted from his
broad torso to Auden’s frame and back again.
“What is this?”
The growl caused her stomach to clench. The urge
struck like lightning and came laced with
humiliation. To roll over and rise onto her hands
and knees. To press her cheek against the dirt,
legs spread, and offerherself to him.
Auden was not ashamed by the idea of coupling. But
to feel her pride and dignity depart her so
completely, to succumb to this base and feral need
and present? It was beyond anything she’d
ever expected. His very presence stripped her of
humanity and caused her to descend and become one
He sniffed the air again. His cock surged, an
insistent bulge raising the loincloth he was
wearing. The muscles in his arms rippled,
threatening to tear the fabric of his tunic.
“Omega,” he breathed.
Auden found she couldn’t speak. The word formed in
her mind but stayed there.
Despite herself, she needed him. Wanted him.
