Blossoming of Fate is the fourth serial in the Omegaverse Mates World, following Destin and Seb, and contains mpreg (male-pregnancy).
My Omega’s Return
(Blossoming of Fate 1)
Two best friends have been apart for the first time in their lives, and it might have changed them more than they were ready to face…
I thought I was just picking up Seb, my life-long best friend, from the station for a week of wild antics. He desperately needs the distraction from his studies, he’s been working way too hard. But when I catch sight of him, my heart starts beating in a way I’ve never felt before.
Seb is my best friend. We’ve basically grown up together. He’s almost like family. Only, these new feelings inside me are definitely not ‘familial’ in the same way as they used to be. I want to claim Seb, make him mine, and that scares me. I’ve never wanted to mark an Omega before…
These last few months have been the longest stretch of time that Destin and I have been apart, living in different cities, no longer seeing each other every day. Destin decided to stay behind to work at his father’s company, while I went away to university.
After all the stress from classes and missing my best friend, I was looking forward to spending the week relaxing and catching up at home. Only, the moment I step out of the station and catch sight of Destin, I know that I won’t be relaxing this week. My heart starts to race and my body heats up, making me very aware that the guy who’s always been at my side is not just anyone, but an Alpha. An Alpha I’m very attracted to. An Alpha who, as far as I know, has no interest in male Omegas like me…
My Lover’s Resolve
(Blossoming of Fate 2)
Two young mates agree to stay away from each other, but when they break that promise, everything falls apart…
I wasn’t supposed to see Seb for four years. That was the only plan we could come up with to keep us both safe, so he can finish his degree and I can work my way up at my Omega father’s company. Two weeks in, I can’t stand our separation any longer and impulsively go visit him anyway.
Not being able to see him was hard enough when we were best friends, but now that we know we’re mates, I really can’t stay away from him…
I’ve tried, but I can’t do it.
I know that I should send him away, I really should. But when Destin suddenly appears at the apartment, looking as troubled as I feel, I don’t have the strength to do it. Seeing him makes me feel alive for the first time in weeks and I don’t want to let go of that sensation.
Mia won’t let us stay in the apartment for the weekend, since she knows about Destin and me, and we’re not allowed to have mates sleep over. So we sneak away to a holiday park, hoping to spend a relaxing weekend together and come up with a better plan than trying to stay away from each other, which obviously isn’t working.
Only, the weekend isn’t as relaxing as I’d hoped and things get much, much more complicated quickly…
My Mate’s Dilemma
(Blossoming of Fate 3)
One weekend together, a whole lot more problems to solve…
It’s been a hell of a few weeks, ever since Seb came home for fall break and we reacted to each other in ways we've never done before, but after last weekend, things aren’t going to get any easier. Last weekend, I just really needed to see him, so I went to visit him even though I shouldn't have. I couldn’t stay away any longer.
And then he went into heat… And then I mated him… And then everything fell apart for real…
Trying to figure out what to do next, how to live life as a freshly mated Omega but also a university student, it’s hard. Things aren’t easy for Omegas at university as it is, add in the fact that I’m now mated, and they will only get more complicated, almost impossible.
So, I reach out to the only person I know who has personal experience with how I’m feeling, my Beta mum, hoping that she can at least give me some pointers as to what to do next. But what we find makes me even more convinced that the plans Destin keeps coming up with aren’t going to work. How am I going to break that to him? How am I going to tell him that it’s impossible?
My Parents' Surprise
(Blossoming of Fate 4)
One party, one birthday gift, and the secret is no more…
We’ve been trying to keep a low profile for the last couple of weeks, ever since the weekend I mated Seb, but that’s about to be rudely disrupted.
It didn’t help that I told our parents last night that Seb was sick from drinking too much booze, after they were already worried about him. And I’m not sure that my explanation of ‘sorry, it was a stomach bug, Seb doesn’t have a drinking problem’ this morning is convincing any of them. Which is bad, especially with Seb’s dad’s birthday party tonight…
All eyes are on me, judging my every action. Between me trying to avoid my parents, looking rough from not getting enough sleep because of stress and my younger twin brothers acting out at school, my parents are on high alert about my behaviour.
It doesn’t help that I’m already feeling guilty over keeping a massive secret from them, and that I’m making others keep secrets too, which all makes the early pregnancy symptoms even worse. How am I going to survive my dad’s birthday party without giving away what’s going on?
My Sibling's Struggle
(Blossoming of Fate 5)
It seems that when one secret is uncovered, more start to come out…
I never considered our lives to be particularly eventful. Sure, our family setups were a little unconventional, especially with so many people in our close circle running their own companies and all, but there was never much drama going on. Until this year, it seems.
While we worried about me mating Seb, him being pregnant and trying to figure out where to go from here, it seems that we weren’t the only one struggling. Seb’s younger brother, Dan, just dropped a massive bomb of a secret on us, leaving all of us reeling. How are we going to fix this now?
I thought that the only thing I had to worry about this weekend was our families finding out that I’m pregnant. My biggest fear was their anger or disapproval. But it seems that that should have been the least of my worries.
Dan has been acting strange ever since the summer, and he just told us why. He’d been cheating his way through school all of last year, and he’s failed all of his tests this year. His solution? He’s going to leave as soon as he turns eighteen, which is only two weeks away. So he won’t have to explain to our parents or the school what’s going on. Because if word gets out that he’s been cheating, there will be grave consequences.
I can’t let him do this. I can’t. But it means that I have to make some hard choices, if I want to keep my family together. And it means keeping even more secrets from our parents…
My Alpha's Proposition
(Blossoming of Fate 6)
Their family is falling apart, but Destin will do anything to keep them together, no matter what…
In one week, our brittle happiness for the future seems to have shattered to pieces. Not only do our families now know about Seb being pregnant, which was good, but Seb’s younger brother Dan shared a secret of his own with us, making the brothers butt heads. When Dan was finally ready to admit to his parents what was going on, Seb’s other brother, Mikey, unwittingly shared a secret of his own.
I’ve known these brothers all their lives, and even I didn’t see what had been going on for months now. But I do know one thing, now Seb is my mate, his younger brothers are my younger brothers too, and I will find a way to fix this, no matter what I have to do. For their sakes, but also for Seb’s sake, for our future.
After finding out about the problems my younger brothers are in, I feel like I’ve failed them, that I didn’t do my duty as an older brother. Even though I know that’s not true, I’m their brother, not their parent, it doesn’t make the feeling go away.
We finally had a plan how we could help Dan, it was a good plan. But with what just happened to Mikey, I’m not so sure anymore. It feels like ever since I left for university, everything at home has been falling apart.
Not to mention, Monday morning, I have to meet with a university counsellor to make sure I can keep going to classes until the end of this year, and I have to take Destin and both our Alpha fathers with me. The meeting will have to be calm, controlled, follow very strict rules that only the university seems to know about. But with all the emotions running so high in our families, why do I have a feeling that the meeting might not go that well?
My Husband's House
(Blossoming of Fate 7)
Two young mates seem to be doing everything in an unusual order, but that doesn’t mean they can’t complete a few more ‘usual’ milestones, even out of order…
New year, new… Well, new everything, it seems.
By some luck, and with help from our parents, we were able to buy the house that Seb and I looked at a few weeks back, and the renovation of it has been progressing slowly but steadily. Between taking evening classes and working full-time, my free time has become increasingly limited and every spare moment I have is spent on getting our house ready. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s very much worth it.
As I’m getting ready for the next chapter of my life, I realise two things. I don’t just want our house to be livable, I want it to be special, and I know just the thing to make that happen.
And I want to propose to Seb. Since we’ve already mated and Seb is already pregnant, it might be a little redundant, but I still want to do it. I want him to be my husband, no matter how sappy that sounds.
I’m so exhausted. My university classes and working on the new house would have been a strain on me even under normal circumstances, but with me being pregnant… I feel like I’m never getting enough rest, no matter how much I sleep. It’s all getting a little too much.
Luckily, my younger brother Dan now living with Mia and me helps with the workload at home, but I still feel like I need more sleep than I can get in a day.
I know I can do it. I want to do it so much. I want to show the world that Omegas aren’t weak, that I can do all of this. But I don’t know how much longer I can keep going at this rate…
My Family's Promise
(Blossoming of Fate 8)
Life is changing on all fronts for the two young mates, some changes are good, others not so much…
Time is flying by. With every week filled to the max, I barely have time to breathe some days. The house is almost done, it’s nearly livable, and we’ve started on the final touches, before buying furniture and things like that.
But that also means that Seb’s pregnancy is progressing quickly and it becomes clearer and clearer by the day that he’s pregnant, and it’s making him nervous. Especially with the weather getting warmer, so he can’t hide under a thick sweater anymore.
I’m there for him however I can and however he needs me to be, but sometimes I wish I could do more…
Classes are going fine, the work isn’t too much and I feel like I’m getting some more energy back. But that’s really the extent of the ‘good’ things about being at university.
Now I’m more and more obviously pregnant, people have started to treat me differently and it’s really annoying. Some days I barely want to leave the house because of it, which I know is not a good idea, but I don’t always know what else to do.
Did I make the wrong choice to stay at university for this first year? To not just drop out early? To stubbornly keep going?
My Son's Arrival
(Blossoming of Fate 9)
Summer is here and that means big life changes for the two young mates…
While I’ve settled into a pretty good routine in these last months, between work, classes and spending time with Seb, I know that his life has been one big rollercoaster.
But with his final essays and exams in the coming weeks, things should get easier for a while. A short while. A very short while… Because our baby will be born soon, throwing our lives for another loop.
Are we ready?
It feels like everything that has happened in the last nine months has been leading up to this moment. It starts with my final essays and exams, then I’ll have to pack up everything at the apartment to officially, fully, move in with Destin and then our little boy will be born.
Looking at that list, thinking of everything involved, I feel like I’m not ready. But I’ll just have to face it, because there’s no going back, these things are happening and will happen, no matter if I want them or not.
Luckily, I’ve got Destin and our families to help out. Now, I just have to convince myself that I’m ready. Is anyone ever ready?
Our Fate's Blooming
(Blossoming of Fate 10)
Two brand new parents, a brand new life…
Fynn isn’t even two months old yet, and he’s already on his first vacation. Instead of just Seb’s family going on the trip, my family has come along too, just like Mia’s family. It’s a big group, and things have been tricky at times, but it’s also been quite interesting to have everyone together.
Taking care of a young baby has its challenges, but there are also amazing moments.
Having everyone together on the trip has made it into a very special experience. And trying to plan things to do with everyone at the same time isn’t very easy, especially when you have such an age range in the group and when not everyone seems to be on the same day rhythm. Fynn isn’t even the one with the worst sleeping schedule at the moment, which is kind of funny, to be fair.
But that doesn’t matter, as long as we can keep everyone together and happy, that should be enough, right?
Blossoming of Fate Collection 1
Two best friends, one Alpha, one Omega, reunite after having been apart for the first time in their lives, finding out that everything they knew about the other has changed. Are they ready to face their future?
The plan was that I would pick my life-long best friend Seb up from the train station, we’d have a week of wild antics as he takes a break from his university work and that life would go back to normal after that. Of course, we all know what happens to plans…
Instead, the moment I catch sight of him at the station, my heart starts beating in a way that I’ve never felt before. We’ve always been close. We’ve basically grown up together, like family. But these new feelings are a different type of ‘familial’. I want to claim him. Mark him. Make him mine.
I try to fight it, to stay away from him, but that only brings more trouble…
Being at university is the longest I’ve ever been away from my best friend, Destin. He decided to stay at home to work at his daddy’s company while I pursue a degree. It’s been quite a change from seeing each other every day to not seeing each other for weeks, but that time is finally over as I’m home for fall break.
Only, once I arrive, things start to spin out of control pretty quickly. My body responds to Destin in ways that it has never done before, the way an Omega’s body responds to their fated Alpha, and it scares me. It scares me so much that I flee, trying to avoid Destin at all costs.
Which only brings even more problems, as when an Alpha and an Omega recognise their fated mate, trying to deny that connection can cause real harm…
This collection includes the first five novellas about Alpha Destin and Omega Seb (My Omega’s Return, My Lover’s Resolve, My Mate’s Dilemma, My Parents’ Surprise, My Sibling’s Struggle) in the Blossoming of Fate serial, which takes place in the non-shifter Omegaverse Mates World and contains mpreg (male-pregnancy).
