“Better?” I ask Sara as we sit beside the lake.
“Much.” Sara breathes deeply.
The air is cool and fresh, and I find it does one a world of good.
“I’m sorry that I wasn’t with you; my father forbade me from entering the dungeon.”
“Yet you did anyway,” Sara chuckles.
I nod. “I had to; you were going to kill someone if I hadn’t stopped you.”
Sara crosses her legs then hangs her head while biting her lower lip. “I’m so sorry; I didn’t realise what I was doing. Anger took over me,”
With my fingertips under Sara’s chin, I tip her head up. “Your power is growing, Sara. We need to get you some help with controlling it.”
After fucking Sara in the shower twice, it’s safe to say that I’m late. My father won’t be pleased that it took me almost an hour; when I said ten minutes, but tough shit.He calls for me to enter when I knock on the door.My eyes narrow when I walk in and close the door behind me.What the hell is Yanlin doing here?“What’s going on?”Dad raises his eyebrow at me. “First off, where the fuck have you been? Actually, don’t answer that; I can smell it all over you.”I roll my eyes.“Why didn’t you tell me you fucked up this bad?”“Excuse me?” I don’t understand.“Yanlin here has been
“Sara, wait!”“Leave me alone!” I scream while walking faster away from the mansion.I cannot fucking believe this shit!How could Leander not tell me that he’s expecting a child with someone else?Okay, it’s evident that it happened before I came along. But that doesn’t make it any easier to cope with.Lilly told me how wolves are passionate creatures, and most don’t wait for their mates before having sex. But almost all will not have children with anyone other than their mate.Not mine, though, no, mine had to go knock someone up who wasn’t me!I feel so hurt, and I don’t know how to cope with it all.I want to cry and scream and beat the shit ou
Something doesn’t ring true.I am the King of all wolves, and I can’t sense if the baby Yanlin is carrying is my son’s?No, that’s not right.I believed Leander when he said the kid couldn’t be is. There’s no way he’d lie to me; he’d have no reason to because Leander has never been a liar.If that’s the case, why did Yanlin swear up and down that Leander is the father?The girl has always had a thing for my son, and she never made a secret of that fact. Leander stupidly started a relationship of some sort with Yanlin, and she believed they would be together forever.I had to intervene when their relationship came to an end. Though Leander had let Sterling free, it didn’t seem to scare Yanlin enough to stop what
“I’m so nervous. Why am I nervous? Do I look okay? What if they don’t like me?”“Which of those questions would you like me to answer first?” Leander chuckles.I swallow hard while pulling at the hem of my shirt.I feel sick with nerves, and so many doubts are rushing through my head. I don’t know why, but I&rsquo
“Seriously, Leander, it was vile.”I chuckle at Luther.He’s just sat explaining how he walked in on Mum and Dad screwing. That’s never happened before, not to any of us, probably because we all know to knock on the door before entering, especially when Mum and Dad are alone.That’s not to say we’ve never heard our parents at it; we have, many times. But seeing it is very different to hearing it.“I’m scarred for life!” Luther groans and drops his head to the table.Lilly looks at me and laughs, causing me to laugh along with her.I am so glad that Luther walked in on Mum and Dad, not me. I don’t think I’d be handling it as well as he is.“Come on, Luther,” Lill
This cannot be happening!Leander was supposed to fall at my feet, not fight me on whether the damn baby is his or not. For Goddess Selene’s sake! I have done everything to make the Dalgaard’s believe me, yet Leander fights me on the truth?Okay, saying I was twenty-four weeks pregnant made them doubt me. But the fact remains that I am twenty-four weeks, and there is nothing I can do to change that!A friend of mine, a witch, said that I need the blood bonding of a Dalgaard to save mine and my baby’s life. There is only one Dalgaard I would bond blood with, and that’s Leander.All my life, I have loved Leander Dalgaard. I had finally made him mine; then he cast me aside as though I were nothing to him!Now, he’s got a mate?I could just scr
“I can’t believe how cute you were.”I playfully poke my tongue out at Bastian.He and our parents are sitting on the sofa, Mum in between Dad and Bastian as they look through the photo album I brought.“I’m sorry, there aren’t many. Jill and Paul weren’t big on photographs.”Mum shakes her head. “This is perfect. We get to see you grow up through these pictures, and I couldn’t have asked for more.”They’ve seen me as a small child, my first Christmas without them, my first lost tooth, and so much more.My family missed out on all of those precious moments. I can’t get them back, but the photographs seem to be helping ease the pain somewhat.“You look so m
“Hold him!” I scream at Luther.My brother growls in the guy’s face while Bastian rips the mask from his face.“Chan?” Lilly says with narrow eyes. “What the fuck do you think you’re doing?”Chan doesn’t answer, and I don’t give a shit right now.I crouch down next to Sara and push her hair away from her face. That bastard hit her, and the bruises send me murderous!I want to kill him, but Sara is more important to me right now.The room fills with people, but I have no mind for anything other than Sara.“Baby, can you hear me?”Sara doesn’t move, nor does she make a noise to let me know that she can hear me.
