“Sweetheart, please stop eating soil, it’s not good for the baby” alpha Damian of the Golden Mood pack said to his mate, Luna Kendra. She was four months pregnant and one of her cravings was soil, especially after it rained she would go out looking for it and eat it. “I know, but I can’t help it, your pup wants it.” She answered then pouted like a teenager.
Damien shook his head helplessly. “Come, let’s go back.” He helped her up and they went back to the packhouse. “I will be going for my meeting in a few minutes, don’t eat any more soil while I am away.” He told her as they got inside the packhouse going to the kitchen. “Okay,” she said knowing every well that she will go back and get more the moment he leaves.
“Am serious Kendra, no more eating soil, also the war might be over but we still don’t know what will happen, it’s dangerous being out there all by yourself.” Damien expressed his concerns. “It’s been six months since the war ended Damien and these are our pack lands, am sure that I am safe,” Kendra argued.
Six months ago, vampires, witches, and Trolls got together. They killed the royal werewolf family consisting of only pure white werewolves with emerald eyes. Since the supernatural species was too large the royal family formed a council consisting of all the leaders of different species.
The responsibility of this council was to maintain peace among the supernatural and that has been working well for years. There has been no war since the council was formed and peace rained among the supernatural. Vampires and witches felt that they were superior to all the other supernatural beings and wanted to be the ones to rule instead of werewolves.
They got together and also recruited Trolls to fight alongside them to overthrow the royal family so that they can be in charge of the supernatural world. But what they did not plan on was all the other supernatural beings teaming up and fighting against them. When the word got out that they have killed the werewolf royal family.
All the supernatural beings teamed up and fought against them, Fairies, werewolves, Fae, Giants, and Mermaids. All came together and fought against the witches, vampires, and Trolls, it was not an easy war, it took a month for the war to end but unfortunately, all the royal family members were killed.
Six months down the line the supernatural were still picking up the pieces and trying to locate all those vampires, withes, and Trolls who ran. Damien still felt that for as long as they are still out there, it was not safe. “I know that it has been six months but we have not found the bloodsuckers that ran, now did we?” he asked with his eyebrow raised.
They got into the kitchen and Kendra sat on a barstool. “Give her something proper to eat, will you?” Damien asks one of the omegas. “Yes, alpha.” Answered the omega, Damien kissed Kendra’s cheek. “Am leaving now, please behave.” She nodded then he kissed her forehead and left.
After eating Kendra wanted more soil, so, she left the packhouse going towards the river but turned and took the other way towards the mountains when she thought of Damien and the people he might have asked to look after her while he is gone. She walked for a while then found a pond, she went around it then started digging for soil.
She started eating but was disturbed by twigs breaking.
She stopped then looked around, she did not see anything then she continued eating her soil, she heard the twigs breaking once again, she looked around and saw nothing. She thought it was just rabbits, so, she ignored it, but as she was going back to enjoying her soil she heard a baby cry.
She stopped then stood up and looked around. She did not see anyone but the baby's cries continued, she went around following the cries until she saw her, inside a small cave a baby was there wrapped in a pink blanket. Kendra stood up straight and looked around but she did not see anyone.
“Hello!” she called out but there was no response. “Is anyone there?” she called once again but still there was no response. She bent down and picked up the crying baby and hushed her. She immediately quietened down feeling the warm embrace, Kendra smiled looking at the beautiful chubby cheeks.
She stayed there for hours but no one showed up, it was getting dark and the baby was getting restless. Probably hungry and needed a nappy change. She started making her way back to the packhouse, she was met by warriors on the way who looked worried. “Luna, we have been looking for you.” One of the warriors told her.
“Why?” she asked confused as to why they would be looking for her as if she was lost. “No one has seen you for hours and when alpha came back he was worried and sent everyone out looking for you.” The warrior explained, Kendra sighed, it has been a while since she left and she did not tell anyone. Of course, Damien would be worried.
“Tell your alpha that I am okay and that we are headed back to the packhouse.” She instructed, she did not want to open the mind link now as she knew that Damien will be on her case, she wanted to talk to him when she got back and explain the baby situation. Of course, the warriors saw the baby in her arms but did not say anything.
‘Alpha, we have found Luna and we are on the way back to the packhouse,’ one of the warriors reported. ‘Is she okay?’ asked Damien worried that something might have happened to her since her mind link did not go through. ‘Yes, alpha, she is alright.’ Reported the warrior, Damien nodded as if they could see him and cut the link.
The warriors walked back to the packhouse with her and left her at the door when she was getting in, then they went a different direction and mind-linked the others telling them that the Luna was back. When Kendra got upstairs, Damien was already there waiting for her. When he saw her he stood up ready to give her an earful but stopped in his tracks when he saw the baby in her arms.
“Let me change and feed her first then we can talk.” Damien’s mind was all over the place, was their daughter born already? Why didn’t anyone tell him when he got back? Why was her mate even out with her when she has just given birth? All these questions were in his mind but he had no answers.
He waited impatiently as Kendra undressed the baby, bathe her then took some of the clothes they bought for their unborn daughter and dressed her. She mind linked one of the she-wolves who had a baby to give her some baby formula since she did not have some, their boy Austin was six years old already and stopped drinking formula a long time ago.
The she-wolf brought the formula and she thanked her. She then fed the baby as she hummed to her, she fed then fell asleep as soon as she was done, she took her to the nursery they prepared for their daughter with Damien following behind like a lost puppy. She gently placed her on the baby court then left, still with her mate behind her.
She sat on the bed and sighed. “Tell me everything.” Said Damien when he saw that she was still pregnant and that the baby was a bit older, like two months old. “I found her,” Kendra said without looking at him. “You found her where?” he asked since she was not saying anything else.
“Close to the mountains, towards the northern border, there is a pond there and some caves. I found her in one of them, I waited and called out but no one came. So, I brought her back with me.” She explained. “What were you doing there?” he asked knowing very well why she was there but he wanted her to say it.
“I went to get some soil.” She told him with her head lowered making him sigh in defeat. “I will send the word out to other packs in case they know anything about the baby. But you are getting a bodyguard, someone to look after you every minute of the day.” He told her and she snapped her head up looking at him when he mentioned a bodyguard.
“Is that necessary?” she asked pouting. “Yes, it is, you blocked your mind link and came back home with a baby Kendra, who knows what will happen next or what else you will bring home. You are not safe out there on your own!” She raised an eyebrow not liking how he was talking to her. He sighed helplessly when he saw that she wanted to cry.
“Alright, don’t cry now, we will find who the baby belongs to but you are still getting a bodyguard.” He told her as he comforted her. Seeing that she won’t get the way she nodded in agreement. Damien mind linked his beta to send word out about the baby his mate found. “How was she today besides making you eat soil?” he asked about the pregnancy.
“She has been good, where is Austin?” she asked because she did not see her son when she came back. “Still at Andre’s playing with Jaden.” Answered Damien, Jaden is his beta Andre’s son, they were about the same age. “Alright, am tired now I will sleep.” She told him. “Not until you eat something.” He told her.
“Can we eat here then?” she asked, lazy to go back downstairs “Yes, let me go get us some food.” He kissed her forehead then left the room to get food but Kendra fell asleep the moment she laid her head on the pillow. Damien came back and found her sleeping. He shook his head then tucked her in.
Then went to check on the baby and she was asleep. He tucked his son in then went to bed.
Months passed and still, no one came forward to claim the baby, Kendra gave birth to her own baby girl and named her Sandy. They were happy and things with the war seemed to have been resolve for now. The council still existed and everything was back to normal. Except for the baby that no one seemed to know anything about.“She is going to grow up to be a beautiful girl,” Damien commented looking at Shannon playing with Austin. Kendra looked at her kids and smiled. “Yes, she is, she is well behaved too,” Kendra said. “That she is, never gave us any problems.” Damien said. “mm.” that was all the answers Kendra gave.Damien knew that something was bothering her. “What is on your mind?” he asked. “Just that I don’t understand this, I mean how can someone just leave a baby in a cave without care like that?&rdquo
Years passed and the children grew. No one ever came forward to claim Shannon, so Kendra and Damien raised her with their children, Austin and Sandy. They grew up very close as siblings even though Austin was older than the two girls, he was very protective of them and loved them.When Austin turned eighteen alpha Damien and Luna Kendra decided to step down giving the alpha position to their son Austin. The alpha stayed for two years in the pack monitoring Austin and making sure that he had all the support he needed in his first years as alpha. After the two years passed, they decided to travel the world and enjoy their lives leaving the children behind.Sandy shifted when she turned eighteen but Shannon did not, Sandy had her wolf and started talking to her after she shifted. Shannon however never shifted and had no wolf. She was a human in a Lycan world but she was never treated differently as she was the alpha’s daughter, so she never felt any different from h
Shannon My head felt like it was going to split in half or like someone was busy hammering at it making it hurt so much. My eyes were heavy with tears that I refused to let fall, Austin will not make me cry not again, he has made me cry enough, not again, I refuse. I walked slowly to my room balancing with the wall so that I don’t fall.For once I am grateful that he had my room on the same floor as his and his office. Only his room and mine are on this floor. Beta Eliot is staying on the third floor right below us, when I got to my room I pushed the door open, my eyes were beginning to blur and I know it is due to the blood loss.I can feel the back of my head getting wet going all the way to my neck and I know it is not sweat making me wet but blood coming from the fresh wound on my head. I walked all the way to the bathroom then open the small cabinet that is there with all the different pain medication that aunt Nancy gets me
ShannonWhen I was done getting ready, I dragged my feet going downstairs, I went outside and found annoying Rosy standing next to the car taking pictures and pouting her red lips that look like those of a seductive vixen. She did not look like one, she is one. Sandy was sitting in the car glued to her phone.I think she felt my presence or caught my scent because she lifted her head and looked in my direction. “Finally! Now we can leave.” She threw her hands in the air dramatically when she said that. I ignored her of course, her friend, no not her friend but the girl who is keeping her close to get into her brother’s pants shoved me aside and got into the car banging the door.I sighed, it is going to be a long day, I can feel it. I got into the passenger seat and the warrior started the car then we drove off. I laid back on the seat and closed my eyes bocking out the conversation between the two. I must have fallen
AustinI was sitting in my meeting, I went with my beta Eliot, while I was concentrating on the plan the alpha was telling us about to prevent rogues from coming into our pack lands my phone vibrated in my pocket. I took it out and I saw that it is the warrior I sent to the mall with Shannon.My heart rate picked up pace when I saw that it was him, usually, he waits until they are back to report things to me, so you can Imagine the worry when I saw his message now. I quickly clicked on it and it opened. My eyes darkened when I saw the contents of the message, it was pictures of Shannon with the beta of the Devil pack.What the fuck is she doing with my enemy? I keep the bloody slave occupied with enough work so that she does not have time for boyfriends and when she is not working, she is with me. When the hell did she get time to find a boyfriend, she even looks so cozy with the son of a bitch.I tried to calm myself but each ti
AustinI sat in my office thinking about this issue with Shannon and that damned Lucas. He knows who she is, and he approached her on purpose, to piss me off and its working. I stood up and poured myself a glass of whiskey hoping it will calm me down. I poured the first shot and downed it in one go then poured another but before I could down it as well my beta spoke.“Wow! are you trying to kill yourself or what?” he asked, and I lowered the glass in my hand then turned to look at him. His standing in the doorway giving me a complicated look. “Am not trying to kill myself, I am just frustrated.” I tell him then took a seat, he comes in and seats in front of me.“Is it the thing that made you want to come back early from the meeting that is frustrating you?” he asked concerned, I sighed. “Yes.” I told him honestly and he nods. “What is it Austin?” Eliot and I grew up together as
ShannonAustin came into the car then started it and we drove off, I kept quiet and looked out the window. The trees looked like they were moving back as we drove forward, I wished that I was like those tress, moving back to a place I was once happy, I place where I was not a slave and Austin was my brother.‘Goddess, is it because I am human? Is that why you don’t answer my prayers? Because you are a Goddess of the supernatural not humans?’ I asked the Moon Goddess, I was not expecting an answer because she never answers me. Let me try God one last time, he is the God humans worship so, he should be helping me because i am human too.‘Dear God, it is I, Shannon, your child I believe, well I am not sure but please help me out. I don’t want much, I just want for my brother to stop hating me so much, I don’t want to leave the pack because this the only home I know. I just want things to go back to norma
ShannonI could feel Lucas’s eyes on me but I kept mine on my hands, on the outside am calm and collected but on the inside, I am falling apart. One mistake from Lucas and I am done for. I can’t even imagine the punishment Austin is going to give me should Lucas say something stupid. “Are you going to answer me beta Lucas?” Austin probes some more.Lucas averts his eyes from me then looks at Austin and smiles. “Well, what I was going to say is, long time no see old friend, it’s been what, six years?” I found myself releasing a breath I was holding; he may just have saved me this time but I want these two days to be over so that we can go back. “We are not friends beta Lucas and we never will be,” Austin says and Lucas nods.“I thought that we had moved on from things of the past, we are old now, we can’t keep grudges from when we were in school,&
