Kieran had gone to meet Lucian outside his land borders.A great risk but he didn't care.Lucian had finally supplied the substance and Kieran has been transporting it to the abandoned house of treatment.It took quite a while and he was exhausted by the time they were done.He drives home and goes straight to his room. Annaliese isn't there so he decides to check her room before checking Joycelin's.He opens the door quietly and finds her wrapped in bed covers.She looks so peaceful when sleeping.And beautiful.He lies beside he
Annaliese breathes in relief when it's finally over. It was easier than she had thought.Having high rank blood in her had helped her greatly and she couldn't be more grateful.Her mate had said she did well and that makes her smile.She could feel the positive reactions from people, another thing James had taught her how to do.The ones with happy emotions would have light surrounding them and the ones with the opposite emotions would have a thick dark blanket engulfing them.Annaliese is on her way to the hospital with Marian and Kim. When they get there, she starts feeling nauseous."Marian, i need to use the toilet".<
"You lost her?!"."How can you lose a blind woman?!", Kieran thunders."Let me explain", Kim begins.He grabs Kim by the neck and throws him against the wall. Then, he picks him up again and pin him to the wall.Kim doesn't fight back because he knows Kieran is right. He failed to protect Annaliese and that is on him.Marian shouts as she tries to pull Kieran off Kim but Quinn and Leon hold her back."Tell me why i shouldn't kill you right now for failing to protect your Luna?"."The first time i ask you to protect her, she goes missing!".
Five months later, Kieran is devastated.The feeling of being without your mate is devastating.You feel empty, void, lonely, broken and sad.He misses her.He misses her voice. He misses her smile but mostly, he misses her being around him. He hasn't been able to focus.News has traveled far and wide about the Alpha king finding his Luna. He has been told by different people that he needs to be courageous and move on.The pack has been quiet, they all look withdrawn and sad. Venus has refused to speak.Kieran hasn't being able to shift into his wolf since he brought her back.
The cry of a tiny baby wakes Annaliese up.She groans and sits up, taking baby phoenix in her arms and feeding him.When she finishes feeding him, she burps him and lays him back down and she lies beside him placing one hand over him while she tries to go back to sleep.Phoenix is three months old now and stays with his mother in her room.Annaliese had told Kieran that's what she wanted. Since she couldn't see her baby, she'd rather have him with her in her arms at all times.That way, she know he's safe. Only time he isn't with her is, well, half of the time.Joyce, Marian, Tricia and Kim won't stop fussing over him.Apparently, Kim declared to everyone that's he's the godfather but that didn't go down well with Kieran.The pack knows Annaliese is safe and they've also met Phoenix. She has her Luna ceremony to look forward to in five days and celebration of Phoenix's birth in seven days.That's when she and Phoenix wil
Annaliese is in the living room surrounded by Kieran, Quinn, Leon, Kim, Marian, Joycelin, Tricia and her baby."I can feel you glaring at me",she mind links her mate."Why did you run away?"."How dare you fool me?"."What did you do that for?"."That was childish"."Let her be", Kieran says, silencing everyone."Eight months ago, you ran away which landed you in a lot of trouble and had us worried. What do you have to say for yourself?"."Ooooh someone's in trouble"."Shut up, Cresent".Annaliese gulps and fiddles with her fingers.
A day before the ceremony, Annaliese is a pure nervous wreck."So you're telling me i have to dance around naked?", she asks with disbelief."Don't mind them, they're just messing with you", Marian comforts her."I have a lot on my plate guys, stop it", Annaliese mutters, rolling her eyes at them."Oh don't be such a killjoy, just try to have fun", Tricia replies excitedly."You're gonna look beautiful in your gowns", Joyce says, giggling."Gowns?", Annaliese asks, confused.."Yeah, the ceremony is spilt in two"."Say what now?".
"She wolves and He wolves, We're gathered here today to officially welcome the new Luna of Zenith Pack", the high priestess starts, her voice very loud.She turns to Annaliese and places her right hand between hers."Annaliese do you swear to stand by your Alpha and mate and the pack at all times, in peace and war?"."I do"."Do you swear to carry out your duties in truth and help make Zenith Pack stronger?."I do"."Do you swear to protect the pack with your life and die trying?"."I do"."Very well, Let it be known that you're the true mate of the alpha king"."For your heart is beautiful and pure, you shall rule with understanding, sincerity, fairness and harmony. For your soul is clean, you shall rule with trust, wisdom, loyalty, confidence, intelligence and truth"."A true Luna never quits on her pack".Then the high priestess places two fingers on Annaliese's forehead and her other whole hand on
