I know he planned on rejecting me but his words still hurt. My friends knew I found my mate well except for Zander and Lilly but obviously he is lying to everyone. Lilly! The thought of her in the hospital bed hit me hard. I eat some food hoping to gain my energy back.
‘Belle are we ready to help Lilly she needs to join the festivities?’ I laugh to Belle.
‘It will really drain us but let’s go Ivy and Lilly need us.’
I pull Erik and Jason aside and let them know my plan to help Lilly. It is about 3 in the afternoon if I get there quickly she can join the activities. I know this will bring Oliver some happiness. He looks so stressed. He will be so happy to see h
Chapter FifteenIreland POVPain excruciating pain more than I have ever felt trying to heal anyone wakes me up. I cannot help the screams ripping through my lips. In an instant Erik is at my side, holding me in his arms. My body feels like it is ripping apart from the inside. The pain is in my heart and in my lower abdomen. I don’t have energy left to block the pain and the only thing that can cause this sort of pain is ‘Mate he is inside another female’ Belle is crying loudly in my head. I cannot stop the tears that are streaming down my cheeks.“What is wrong lollipop? Please I want to help” Erik is rocking me back and forth.Only one word leaves my lips
Chapter SixteenJackson’s POVI hate being away from him even if it is just going to be temporary. I know he will return with them in a couple of weeks for the full moon but it hurts. I feel uneasy all the time and I don’t know if it is my feelings of being away from him or something is going on with them. I wanted to go with them but Ire no matter how broken he made her feel, said he needed me and that Jason would return and then he would stay by my side where he belonged. I trust her completely especially since she told me more about her because her trust in me grew.He is one of my best friends and I am trying hard not to avoid him but when I see him smile I can’t help but see the brokenness he created in her. I want to hit him when he laughs because he is the r
Chapter SeventeenIreland POV“It is too dangerous!” Erik shouted“Don’t you think that of all people I know the dangers? I am tired of living in fear. Our lives could be so different if I didn’t live so afraid. Your life could have been so different, you may not have been rejected if it was not for me.”“Don’t take that on Ire if she could not love me she could not love me she only cared about status.”“ We could ask for help” Jason added, not wanting to continue the conversations about mates as he was away from his.“You will just not yet. This I have to do alone for now. The trai
Chapter EighteenZander POVThe Festivities of the Full Moon start in just a few days. There is so much to do but I feel weighed down by feelings toward my son. I love him, he is my heart and my only child and I have raised him to be a great Alpha and I thought a great mate. I feel like I failed in some way, I understand he is choosing his path as a way to keep the Pack strong but he could not be more wrong. I wish I could tell him but I can’t break her trust and I have to believe the Moon Goddess has a plan. I want to tell Lilly so bad what is going on to prepare her but I know she will feel heartbreak either way. Maybe I can get him to come to the realization on his own with just a little guidance. I mindlink Oliver to come to my office so we can talk about the festival. I think I have a plan. Oliver knocks, enters and hesita
Chapter NineteenIreland POVI love that my friends have come to see me. That they were willing to venture out to the cabin but I would feel horrible if anything happened to them.“I have missed you so much dear, please come stay at the pack house. He won’t be able to get you there I promise.”“Sorry Lilly I can’t put you all in jeopardy. I have no doubt you and Zander would do anything to protect me.” I feel bad I don’t tell her the whole reason why I left.“Well Mason was let down when he did not see you at the packhouse. I thought he was going to strangle poor Oliver and that Beta’s daughter.” Chapter TwentyIreland POVI look around and I am in a beautiful woods, one that I have never seen before. I can see every star in the sky and the moon but it is light outside. I look around and approaching me is my wolf Belle. She nuzzles into me and I reach up and scratch between her ears. “Hey beautiful girl.” She begins to walk further into the forest and I follow after her. We approach a beautiful waterfall and she just sits down. I sit down next to her letting my feet dangle in the water.“Sweet girl you must be so tired.”I look toward the beautiful woman who appears next to me. Only one woman could be this beautiful. “Moon Goddess did the rejection kill me because I was tired from helping the pups? I didn&

Chapter Twenty OneOliver POVDinner was awful. The food tasted like ash on my tongue. All I could do is steal glances at her. I know I was being rude by not interacting with my guests but I just can’t. I feel like I can’t hear anything other than her occasional laughter. It really did fill the air speaking of air if the wind wasn’t drifting her scent in my direction I am not sure I could breathe.It is time to get up and mingle around, dance and drink til time to shift. Drinking that is exactly what I will do. I go get my drink passing where Ireland stands talking to Josh.“Josh, yes I would love a drink thank you.”“Then maybe you could accompany me
Chapter TwentyTwoIreland’s POVI am back in the same forest as last time but now it is not just me and Belle a midnight black wolf also approaches. “Finn?” The wolf just nods his head then licks the side of my face. We begin walking to the beautiful waterfall again. There sitting on the rocks was the moon goddess. I approached her and sat next to her.

I know you are strong and I am always with you.”“But he doesn't love me. Please let me accept the rejection.”
