Dad was blowing things way out of proportion, blaming Liam for something that wasn’t even his fault. We were in the family lounge, although we were keeping our voices low. Everyone was tense and pissed.
"Alright, I get it. I’m sorry!" Liam said closing his eyes, trying to be the calmer one.
"Dad enough!" I said frustrated. Mum frowned, placing a hand on dads chest. She was angry we had lied but what did they expect? They always blamed Liam and I hated it.
"Elijah. Enough. She’s ok and you need to stop thinking she’s a baby." I gave mum an appreciative smile. If anyone understood it was her, I just wished the others did too. I hated that Liam already blamed himself and now dad was only making matters worse.
"I get it, I messed up. I should have stayed with her until she came out of the bathroom." Liam said frowning. I shook my head, hell no.
"Dad! Liam! I left the cinema of my own will. If I just returned to the screening room, I
ALEJANDRO "Or What?" Her words surprised me, but I didn’t let it show. Right now controlling my instincts was proving really hard. She lay there on the bed, not even an ounce of fear came from her. That shocked me more than anything. She knew I was stronger; she wasn’t fucking dumb. Her breasts were close to spilling out of her thin-strapped dress and my eyes took in her hardened nipples. I narrowed my eyes at her remark. "You don’t want me to show you what." I said coldly. "Maybe I do?" She challenged, trying to push me off. Her words were tempting me and I was ready to show her exactly what, when suddenly she pinched my nipple hard. I raised an eyebrow, even when her nail had dug into the piercing I didn’t even flinch. Her soft fingers sent a delicious sizzle of pleasure through me. Letting go of her neck, I now pinned both of her arms to the bed on either side of head. "That won't work. Are you really going to resort to such petty tricks?"<
KIARA I shut my door, my heart pounding. What was that...? I felt humiliated and mocked. Why had I even let him touch me? A sting of pain jolted through me. I had made a complete fool of myself, and I had to face him for an entire week. What would dad think if he ever found out? The feel of his fingers down below lingered. I closed my eyes, sliding down the door until I was sitting on the floor. Only my fairy lights were on, all I could see was black and the little glowing drops of light. I felt utterly confused. Sure I have had sex, but to get all worked up over someone so quickly… It confused me. His hurtful comment that I was a slut had really hit me hard. I pursed my lips and stood up, feeling for the light switch. I flipped it on and walked over to my wardrobe. I was going to shower, I didn’t need the feel of his hands on me. I paused, tempted to call my occasional sex partner over. I needed to get that asshole out of my head. Picking up my phone
ALEJANDRO "Why?" Scarlett asked, frowning. "My guess. You." I said, it was the only logical suggestion. Scarlett had abilities a normal wolf didn’t. The couple exchanged looks and Elijah pulled Scarlett into his arms. Kissing her neck, he inhaled deeply. I could sense the possessiveness and concern rolling off him as his mate tried to calm him, stroking his arms. "I’ll be fine." She said softly. "Mm. That would obviously insinuate that someone was sending them and that they are working with a goal." I said, frowning as I remembered how the Wendigo hadn't attacked Kiara either. Did it hesitate because she perhaps had Scarlett’s scent? Or did she have an ability too? "So, someone from the shadows?" Elijah asked, his arms still wrapped around his mate. "There’s definitely somewhere these things are coming from. Whoever they are, they’re smart. I’m still bringing up a fucking blank and I’ve looked. So that’s why I'm here. I will have some
KIARA The moment he had that sadistic smirk on his face and cracked his knuckles when he scanned our warriors, I knew he was going to be ruthless. Was it even fair for him to join? "Alright, everyone! We have the honour of having The Alpha King himself here…" Liam said. I didn’t say anything. Anyone would know who he was, the power that rolled off him was not one that could be ignored. Despite the fact his sexy appearance distracted me from his power, it was ever-present like a darkness around him. The training grounds were separated into sections for different levels and sessions, as well as different training activities. There was target practice for shooting, with a large wall behind it so we didn’t end up hitting anyone. Then there were the tracks and the training in wolf form area. We also had weapons practice as well as hand-to-hand. I was the only one who used a staff in human form for both weapon and hand-to-hand training. For hand-to-hand pra
ALEJANDRO This was fucking fun. The fucker was good, but not good enough. With each hit, I went faster. He was trained well, probably up to par with my top warriors, but nowhere near as good as me. I had just elbowed him in the neck, when my eyes fell on Kiara. She was sparring with her brother, blindfolded. I blocked the Beta’s attacks, my eyes on her. If I thought she let her sight or ankle hold her back, I was wrong, way fucking wrong. She moved like an assassin and I had to admit it was sexy. Was it weird that I was checking out a girl who was barely legal? This was fucking messed up. An image of her clad in lingerie and wrapped around a pole entered my mind and I dragged my eyes away. I needed a fucking distraction from her. I focused on the man in front of me, a little bored with the fight now. With a few punches, I knocked him to the ground before twisting his arm behind his back about to break it when I heard a groan and a giggle. I let go of
KIARA I could not believe he did that. The dickhead! Urgh, I was so going to get him for this! “Guys?” Liam said again, his eyes now a deep magnetic navy. “Justin, carry on with the training.” The young man, who was in his mid-20s, nodded - motioning for everyone to carry on. Raven looked at me and I gave her a nod. I needed her. Guaranteed, Liam will flip… Liam walked off and we all knew he wanted us to follow him. I looked at Damon. ‘We got this.’ He said through the link. I took a deep breath as we followed Liam into the packhouse and into the lounge. He looked around, seeing two teens on the sofa. “Out.” He said curtly. Liam was friendly, however when he got angry, it wasn’t good. Raven shut the door after the two boys left and he turned his darkened eyes on us. “Care to explain why you’re fucking my sister?” He said, now turning to Damon. With anger radiating off of him the air in the room felt thick. I loo
ALEJANDRO My anger flared up and I grabbed her throat, not caring that my claws dug into her soft skin. I hate disrespect and I will not tolerate it from anyone. I warned her and if she thought I was playing, then she had a lot to learn. I slammed her to the ground, but at the last moment I found myself slowing down. I couldn’t. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t fucking hurt her the way I wanted. I internally felt the crunch resonate through me as she met the ground. She gasped; her hands were wrapped around my wrist tightly as the smell of blood filled the air. I saw the pain that flickered across her face but it did nothing to lessen the burning flame of anger in her eyes. “It’s all you’re good at, right? Do it again if it makes you feel better, but I am not scared of you!” She hissed. Her words sounded distant, as all I could focus on was the blood that surrounded the ground around her. Fuck! I shouldn’t have done it. My heart was racing in a way it
LIAM "Liam! Wait!" I closed my eyes, trying to calm myself down as Raven caught up to me. I didn’t want to talk to anyone right now. I mean, I just realised my best friend was screwing my sister behind my back. I don’t know what was worse, the fact they were sleeping around or the fact they were doing it so casually. I knew Damon had a sex partner; he had told me that. However, he always spoke of her with this small smile and I knew he liked her, but he had never told me who she was. Well, that made sense now. I didn’t once think it was Kiara. "Liam." Raven said, now placing her hand on my arm. She was tiny but her personality made up for it. I was 6,4 give or take, and towered over her. "Raven." I replied, ignoring the look of concern in her unique eyes. "They’re adults, Liam." She said gently. I knew she was hurt but I was not sure if it was only because of Kiara hiding it from her or because it was Damon. I knew she
