I kissed Kiara fleetingly before we rushed back to our positions. Calming myself for those who were looking to me for strength. I couldn’t afford to feel anything but blood-thirst and confidence. How was it that it had all changed when she came into my life? I knew I'd be happy as long as she lived... but I also knew she needed more than just herself to live...Her parents, her brother, me...
For Kiara, we had to win this.
I unleashed my power, opening my link so that I could connect to all Alphas. Alphas, who would then relay it to their packs. I closed my eyes, taking a deep breath as I focused, reaching far out into the woods that surrounded us. Honing in on the smallest animal or sound, getting past the hundreds of heartbeats of my wolves.
We were spread out, disguised and hidden, then there were backup wolves far away in case we needed it. There it was, the silent movement of something dark, I couldn’t hear any heartbeats or footsteps an
MARCEL My body screamed in pain as I forced myself up, I saw Scarlett attack but the witch was still strong. I tried to move but I couldn’t, I watched as the younger Alpha Female ran to protect her sister. My heart rang in my ears as I jumped forward, but I was too late… The witch plunged her hand into the girls chest, my own chest tightening at the sight of her heart being torn from her rib cage… but what hit most was the look of content sadness on her face. I would never forget it… Scarlett’s scream pierced the air as she caught her sister’s body, and I ripped the fucking witch to shreds. She hadn’t expected me to get up but with the damage that Scarlett and I had inflicted upon her, she had been considerably weakened already. "No! No! Goddess no!" Scarlett shouted, as the black whirlwind dissipated. I wasn’t going to take chances as I tossed her fucking heart to a nearby wolf who finished it off, devouring it. "We need Kiara!" "Kiara’s in battle, s
KIARA She was strong, but I was not going to back down. Getting close to her had never been harder. She chuckled sardonically as Alejandro failed once again. Even though he was now using two foot-long daggers to help him, there was nothing that worked against her barriers. ‘Alpha! Luna! Darien called!’ Someone shouted through the link. ‘What is it?!" Alejandro growled as I blasted another of her attacks away from us. ‘Jasmin’s started to act weird in the cells. She seemed to have a seizure or something. What do we do? Leave her or go to her?’ ‘Don’t go anywhere near her, there must be some reason behind it. We’re approaching the given time! Tell Darien that if she begins to go fucking psycho, kill her instantly. Keep me updated.’ Alejandro grunted as he shoved through the wall. This time he seemed a little more successful, but it was futile. Before his blades even got close to her, he was blasted back. He was in his Lycan form, and des
KIARA "I love you… Amore…" His voice pierced my heart. The sadness, regret and guilt in his eyes before they closed. No… This was not farewell! Pain ripped through me and never had I felt such a level of hurt. It was worse than seeing Alejandro and Jasmin together at the mating ceremony. My knees almost buckled under the agony, my eyes on Alejandro as he ripped her heart apart. "Baby no!" I shrieked. No! I can’t lose you! No! His howl of pure agony ripped through the air, and it was a sound I’d never forget. I rushed towards him, falling to my knees. "Hold on!" I cried, pressing my hands to his chest. I poured all my healing into him. My heart was thundering as I tried to listen to his heartbeat. Nothing. "Goddess no! Please no!" I cried. My eyes were blurring with tears but I didn’t stop. He had to heal! He couldn’t die! Why him! No… please no… "He’s… gone…" Someone whispered. I
OVER FOUR MONTHS LATER… KIARA "Luna! Come on, we need to go for a walk!" Kevin said, without even knocking on my office door. I looked at him, my lips refusing to turn up into a smile to return his big one. "I need to complete some paperwork, Kevin." I replied, as I stood up and shuffled some papers. My stomach was huge, and I was due soon. I placed a hand on my stomach as I bent over to gather some files together. We were having a baby boy and doctor Callum was stunned at his growth already. My baby and the fact that my love was still teetering on the brink of death four months onwards was all that kept me going. "Nope, doctors’ orders, a walk and fresh air every day. Come on, let's talk about the latest Fenty Beauty release!" He stated, coming over and taking my hand. I looked at him. He and Carmen were always around me. Serena, Darien and Tia would often accompany me too. I had returned to this pack four days after t
KIARA This was not supposed to happen. I held Raven tightly as she trembled, struggling to hold her tears back. "Damon…" I said softly. He looked at me. I had never seen him look more torn. Confusion, want and guilt all surrounded him. I knew he wanted to comfort Raven, yet at the same time, he felt guilty towards Liam. I had never seen them ever argue like this. They were like brothers in every way. Seeing Liam this angry towards Damon completely shook me up. "I don’t know what to do…" He whispered. He moved forward, reaching for Raven. "Liam…" She whispered, her head buried in my shoulder. I saw the hurt flash in Damon’s eyes as he backed away. She didn’t mean it like that... But before I could even speak, Damon had run off. I closed my eyes, feeling confused. "Luna Kiara." I turned to see one of Dad’s warriors approaching me. "What is it?" I asked. "Alpha Scarlett is in labour." My eye
KIARA The following day, things didn’t turn out as expected. Liam told Dad he wanted to leave for his Alpha training immediately. I knew Mom and Dad knew something had happened, but they didn’t know what. Raven came to see baby Azura but like always she was all smiles and energy. She was in pain, I could sense her emotions that she was trying so hard to hide but she still acted so cheery, waving a very cute yet ugly octopus teddy she had brought for Azura. I too couldn’t stay any longer either, although I wanted to be here for Raven, I felt unsettled and the urge to go to Alejandro was at breaking point. So the plan was made, Liam will drop me off and then head on to meet up with Rayhan who was leaving for his training soon too. Liam would stay at The Black Storm Pack for a week or so before both continued to their first location for their training together. I was dressed in Alejandro’s shirt and leggings, my hair up in a ponytail and a pair of sneake
ALEJANDRO Nothing. I couldn’t feel anything or hear anything. Not even my heartbeat. Nor could I sense if it was hot or cold. There was darkness around me, yet at the same time, I couldn’t see it. It was just… emptiness. The pain that had consumed me was gone. I had been stuck in this state for so long that I had no idea how much time had passed. Was I dead? I had felt the agonising pain and then my life slipping from my grasp. The last thing I remembered was Kiara’s scream of anguish. I had failed her. I left her when she needed me the most. I once thought I’d destroy the world for her, but then I realised I needed to create somewhere safe for her. For our pup. At times, when I felt the darkness consume me, something would tug me back, leaving me suspended in this emptiness. But now… I was getting pulled into the depths of the darkness that I was always teetering at the edge of. A sudden dazzling light made me close my eyes, raising m
KIARA No matter how many people congratulated me solemnly on the birth of our son, it was still a heart-breaking time for everyone. My only contentment was that my baby had been born healthy. Serena had told Mom and Dad that I had the baby and Mom was determined to come, although she only had Azura the day before. I had told her not to, but she refused. We still had not told them about Alejandro. Just the thought caused another wave of pain to envelope me. I wanted to die, to break down, to let everything out, but I couldn’t because I had my little angel, the only physical remnant of Alejandro and my love. I never understood what it meant when they said a mother's love is unconditional, but now I understand it means that no matter how much pain we were in, we'd keep going for our children. For our son, I would keep going. I looked down at him as I fed him. He was a hungry little thing. His suckling was strong, his little hand holding on to my breast as he dra
