Caleb’s Point of View
I am startled awake a little after midnight and turn to find Daphne tossing about in our bed. Her forehead is beaded with sweat and she is practically crying in her sleep. My heart breaks imagining the horrors that my mate is living through in her dreams. My beautiful love has had to endure so much in her short life. I reach out and gather her in my arms, kissing her and softly reassuring her that she is safe and in my arms. She slowly wakes up and I continue to hold her, reassuring her in every way I can think of that I am here, she is safe, and I will always keep her safe.
“I am sorry I woke you up.” Her voice is soft, and she hiccups a little with the last of hers sobs finally subsiding.
“Do not be sorry my love. You have been through so much. I wish I could have saved you from everything that you have experienced. Daphne you are so strong, an
Daphne’s Point of ViewI am trying really hard not to cry as Scarlet and Theo are pulling out of the driveway. Rationally I know that they are only going to be gone for a few days. I also know that this is a journey that Scarlet must make. Being Luna of the Blue Mountain pack, I know that if I were in her shoes, I would not forsake my pack either. Irrationally though I never want her to leave, because I am worried that I will never see her again. Caleb notices that I am not taking the separation well and pulls me into his side, wrapping his arms around me. We stay like that on the front steps until Theo’s car disappears from sight.Caleb has been amazing about everything. The Moon Goddess could not have blessed me with a better mate. Throughout everything he has been patient, and kind. Seeking every way to comfort me. Walking back into the house, it now seems lonely with everyone gone. Caleb held true to
6 months laterDaphne’s Point of ViewScarlet and Theo have been back home now for a few months. I am enjoying the bond that we have developed, and life has settled down. Now the pack is getting ready for their commitment ceremony and I could not be happier for the both of them. I thank the Moon Goddess every night for blessing me with my life now. It is hard for me to even imagine my life before Caleb.Theo has developed a rigorous training program that has helped me develop my special ability more. As it turns out it seems I have the ability to project a protective barrier of sorts around people and objects. Of course, Theo was more than happy to tell Caleb that his hunches about wolves with special abilities has not failed him yet.I was very proud of myself for helping to develop some of my own training regimen. Theo was so impressed with my thoughts that I
Caleb’s Point of View I reach over intent on pulling Daphne close to me, snuggling so that I may fall asleep again. Unfortunately, once again I find that she is no longer in bed with me. Finally opening my eyes, I see that she is once again staring out into the night, biting her nails, and lost in her head. It has been a few days since Scarlett and Theo’s commitment ceremony, and everything had gone beautifully. In truth I was slightly jealous that they were able to have such a beautiful ceremony, whereas mine and Daphne’s had been somewhat nightmarish. Daphne had opened up to me after her and Scarlett had gone dress shopping. Both women thought that there was a possibility that Daphne was pregnant. I was shocked at first thinking of being a father. I love kids and have always wanted kids of my own. I just thought that Daphne and I would have more time to ourselves before the little patter of paws would be filling the house. I regret n
Daphne’s Point of ViewGuilt spread throughout me as I felt Caleb gently stroke my hair. I know that he is worried about me, and I do not know how to ease his mind. I know that I have distracted him from his duties as Alpha, and I thank the Moon Goddess that this occurred during a peaceful time, but I do not know how to act like I am ok with this situation.I purposely slow my breathing, focusing on making each breath even. I already feel guilty that I woke Caleb when I got out of bed earlier, I do not wish to make him worry anymore. I could feel him settle down as soon as he thought that I was asleep. Continuing to focus on my own breathing I soon felt his body relax as he succumbed to sleep.Now that Caleb was asleep, I could be alone again with my own thoughts. These last few months have been crazy. It is hard to believe that it has been the last week though that has truly wounded my spirit. While helping Scarlett pick out her dr
Caleb’s Point of ViewWhile Daphne was in the bathroom getting ready for the day I decided to go to the kitchen and prepare her a breakfast. Today will be the first day that she has left our room since she found out that the baby was not viable. Even though she has taken some meals in our room, I do not feel that she has been eating enough and her weight loss is now visible. Staring around the kitchen at the cabinets I wonder what I can cook that will guarantee that she will eat.While I am not a culinary expert, I have picked up a few things along the way. I hurry and begin pulling out bacon, sausage, eggs, and fruit. I have no idea what Daphne will want to eat so I decide to make a few things so that she may choose. I start the bacon and sausage first before whipping some eggs in a bowl. My eye catches the cupboard where we keep the starch ingredients and I pull out some English Muffins as well as some pancake mix. Too soon I am trying to keep
Daphne’s Point of View“That is really good Ellie, now try to revive this iris.” I praise the younger pup as she works on her special abilities. It has been a week since my appointment, and since Caleb asked me to take over some of the training that Theo normally does with our unique wolves. Currently I am working with Ellie. Ellie can make plants grow faster, and healthier. We are working on honing her abilities to revive dead plants now.Theo and Caleb brought me into the loop about unique wolves after we discovered that I was one myself. Since then, I have worked on honing my own abilities but have also helped Theo with the other wolves. We still have not discovered why our pack has these abilities, and we have not uncovered any evidence that would suggest that these abilities exist in any other pack.We have a few working ideas as to why our wolves possess these talents, but in reality, none of our studies have given us a c
Caleb’s Point of ViewI had hoped that life would settle down and that there would be some return to normalcy after everything we went through this last year, but life seems to be throwing curve balls our way in rapid pace. Sighing I finally give up on trying to understand the food store ledgers in front of me and lean back in my office chair to reflect on everything that has happened. In the last year I finally found my mate, which stopped me from going feral but that came with complications. Daphne had been used as a slave. She had been abused, and because she was not allowed to have a normal life growing up she was severely behind in her knowledge of Lycans. Not the best position for her considering she was mated to an Alpha.Thankfully, my mate is quick witted and determined and with Theo’s help she has learned a vast amount and taken her place at my side as the Luna. On top of that Daphne was reunited with her sister. Our mating ceremo
Daphne’s Point of ViewIt had been a few days since the encounter I had with Caleb in the kitchen. I know that pushing him away hurt him emotionally, but I am just not ready to be physical again with him. It is not that I do not desire him, his very touch sends delicious tendrils of joy throughout my body. I am just fearful of getting pregnant again. As much as I have been trying to act like it has not bothered me, the truth is glaringly obvious that I am still healing. Scarlett has suggested seeking a counselor, but I do not know if I am ready to open up to anyone about how I am truly feeling.It all comes down to the fact that I feel like I am not only failing Caleb, but that I am failing my pack as well. I never really believed that I was Luna material. I was raised as a slave, and it even took me awhile to accept that I was Caleb’s fated mate. Compared to wolves like Scarlett, Hannah, or just about any other she wolf I find myself infer
