Alpha Male Blog Hop

 #95


I present my character, Xavier, from the Existence series, with his thoughts on why he is the Alpha Male.

            It became
clear to me a decade or so ago, when Heath and I had entered puberty, that I
would need to be the Alpha Male. Heath’s strength and power could destroy us
all. For the greater good I have no choice but to lead. I must protect not only
the world, but him as well. He doesn’t want to embrace the darkness, to inflict
the pain, sorrow, and loneliness that he feels every moment of every day onto
the population of our planet.

 

            I recall
the first sparring match against my friend that I was able to win. Heath is
always an aggressive opponent. His every hit is mighty and his every miss
leaves behind an echoing thunderous boom. But on that day I was determined to
win the competition. It took creative thinking and persistence to wear him
down. Finally I had eroded away at him enough, and the win was at last
mine.

 

            Heath has
never felt like a true Beta to me though, even when he joined the math and
chess teams. I have always ensured that the macho side of his personality was
not neglected. We joined sports teams together and became captain and co-captain.
We took over the student government, which was easy since so many had learned
to turn to us and respect what we had to say. We were trusted, especially among
our female peers.

 

            Ah, the
ladies! By our senior year of high school they all wanted us. We chose those we
wished to have company with. That hasn’t changed. Our body language easily
expresses what we desire and the subconscious minds of our potential dates read
it with ease. Those who prove worthy of our attention are the most likely to
get it. It usually takes time. That’s fine by me, I am in no rush. I can
maintain my composure while calculating if a woman is worthy to take home to my
bed. Heath doesn’t share as high a standard or moral principle with me. His sex
drive gets the better of him, leading him to have several women every weekend.
Sometimes on weekdays as well! It is as if bedding women is the focus of his
life.

 

            That ought
to be a secondary goal. Our primary goal must be the protection and betterment
of this world. That is why I started my company. The benevolent work I do,
those achievements, they are what matters most in the world. That is a worthy
ambition which deserves attention.

 

            Perhaps
Heath does not see it this way because he reacts to how others see him now. He
feels that he has to be known for his success with the ladies. The approval
that he gets from that is what he seems to long towards. I prefer to give
approval than get it. I know who I am, I define my own success. I seek no petty
validation from others. Having any female I choose is wonderful, but it is not
what I ultimately want.

 

            There
is one woman out there for me. I can not prove it, but I feel it. Memories that
are like the faded bits of dreams which appear in the moments between deep
slumber and eyes first fluttering awake- that is what I have of her. Though we
have yet to even meet, her life is what I truly care about. I would die to save
her from a moment of pain, sorrow, or regret. I would do anything to protect
her. After all, looking out for those who I love is the reason for my
existence.

    I Love that they are strong, loyal, confident, and how protective they are of their woman even when they KNOW she can kick some major ass.
    My favorite “Alpha Male” is Jonas from Lora Leigh’s Breeds. He is the Ultimate alpha male. I also like Dash, Mercury, Tarek, Tanner, Law and Rule. In fact I like all of Lora’s Breeds. They are all wickedly sexy and ALL ALPHA! 

  44. Molly at Reviews By Molly

    I think Xavier makes a hot Alpha!!!

    Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It’s all in the heart…..alpha males are the best!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!
