We were there when the elders made their final decision on Salvador and his accomplice. They were sentenced to death by hanging. Just what I wanted, though I would have preferred Salvador to be killed by me. But watching them being hanged, for the first time, I felt their punishment was too harsh. "They should have sent them away like before" I had thought as they closed their eyes to their final breath.I do not know why I suddenly had compassion for them. They killed my parents, killed Ella's dad and some of our pack members lost their lives for their sale. They killed Nolan's parents too and other people that had lost their lives. Why should I have compassion for them?. Why should I feel sad that they were killed?.I watched them being brought down and ready to be buried and I sighed. If I had killed them myself would I feel this bad?. Is this the reason Nolan stopped me from killing him?. Different thoughts ran through my mind as we returned home. I locked myself in my
NOLAN"You are not going to make her stay?" Nigel asked and I shook my head. "You will let her go without a fight?""I can't keep her with me" I answered flipping the pages of the book I was holding."You are letting her go for the second time, without a fight?"I closed the book and sighed. "I don't want her to regret staying back here""Do you think of how she feels?. Why did you not let her make her decision herself?""She was going to leave, I know that. I just don't want her to feel bad leaving me. I don't want to be pitied""Nolan, letting her go isn't the best option. Do you think she will reject you?"I shrugged. "I can't say""If she doesn't reject you, you won't be able to resist her for long""She will have to reject me""And you will lose half of your power. If you are not strong enough you might lose your wolf. What about her?. What if she dies?"I blinked. "She is not going to die. She is strong enough to take
OLIVEI don't know what Natasha had been telling Nolan before I came in but I heard her tell him to leave. I heard her tell him I wasn't going to leave my pack because of him. She was right. I wasn't going to make that decision before and I am not going to make it now. When I waited for him to come to stop me, I had thought of changing my mind. I had feared I might change my mind if he shows up. I had thought I will reject my pack for him. That was the only way I thought I could prove to him that I love him. That I am willing to sacrifice the things that make me happy, for him.But having waited for a long time, hoping he would show up and he never did, I realized I was wrong. I shouldn't change my mind. I should not think of staying back because I will regret it. As I stepped my legs out of the fire pack gate, I made up my mind never to show up again at the fire pack. Never to think of seeing him again. I made up my mind to leave with the pain and never love anyone again.
