I open my eyes, and I am alone. Alpha Sebastian is not here. I get out of his bed slowly. I feel like last night was a dream. Being with him makes me happy. I walk through the kitchen looking for him, but he is not in the house. I wonder where he went without telling me. Well, he is the Alpha; he does not have to tell me anything.
I notice a man who I think is Raul standing outside the front door. Why do I have a guard? Did something happen? I hear some talking and see Alpha Sebastian out on the front porch. I am waiting for him. I do not want to go out, and I only have on his shirt. It would not be appropriate for me to go out like this.
I watch him from the kitchen talking to Raul. He finally comes into the house to speak with me. I wrap my arms around him and realize immediately that something is wrong. "What is it? What is going on?" I ask him.
Alpha Sebastian hesitates. I can te
Alpha Sebastian POVI take one of my guards, Jamie, and leave to talk with Joshua. I have so many questions. For one, I want to know how in the hell he knew about Alanis and her taking refuge with my pack. I want to know why and how he ended up with Alpha Jordon's pack. I want to know why this son of a bitch thought he could attack my sister and take Alanis from me? Did he really think he could just stroll in here and take her without any repercussions?I get into the truck with Jamie. Raul is staying behind with the other guards to keep an eye on Alanis and Julian. I hope Julian behaves herself. She can be a pistol when she thinks she is not in charge. She has never challenged my authority, but she will let me know how she feels about a situation, especially if she feels like she is losing her independence.Jamie drives me to the pack jail to speak with Joshua. The questions are burning in my brain, and I am trying to r
Alanis POVAlpha Sebastian holds me tightly as I work through the emotions of someone thinking they own me. I know I belong with Sebastian. I can feel it in our touch, our kiss; just being in his presence makes me feel whole. Sebastian is my mate, and I do love him."Are you sure this is what you want? You have a choice, and you know that, right? You can say no. I will not be angry with you if you refuse me right now. We can wait until you are ready to marry," Alpha Sebastian questions me.I hold him tighter and then look up to him. "I do want to marry you; I only thought we would have a little more time to get to know one another; that is all," I say meekly.The thought of taking such a big step like marrying the Alpha should not be made so quickly. We have spent a lot of time together, but do I know him well enough to be his wife? He is so patient with me and kind that I think he will allow me time
Alpha SebastianI take Liam and a few guards with me, leaving Julian and Alanis in the hands of some of my most trusted wolves. I know Julian can defend herself, but I worry about Alanis. The men with them will protect them and look after them, but I still do not want to leave either of them for very long.Liam drives to the pack jail where Alpha Jordon is waiting for me with his wolves. Liam looks nervous. He has come for Joshua and Alanis. Alpha Jordon thinks he can walk into my territory and bark orders he has another thing coming to him. He will not be taking my wife or that asshole, Joshua. Joshua has to pay for what he did, and I want to make sure of it personally.Liam looks more nervous as he drives. He always looks worried, but he seems exceptionally uneasy right now. I do not have time to babysit young wolves today. I need Liam on his game."What happened when Jordon showed up at the
Alanis POVAlpha Sebastian kisses me gently and tells me to wait in the car with Julian. I walk away feeling safe as he handles business at the pack jail. I do not think Alpha Jordon would be stupid enough to come back for me right away. I know Julian and Alpha Sebastian will make sure Alpha Jordon and his wolves pay for everything they have done.The one thing that puzzles me the most is why his wolves would turn on him. Alpha Sebastian treats his pack well and with a lot of respect. They all seem to love him. None of this makes any sense."What is going through your mind?" Julian asks me as we sit in the car waiting for Alpha Sebastian to return so we can go home.I turn to her. "Why would they turn on Sebastian?" I ask.Julian lets out a huge puff of air in frustration. "Sometimes wolves feel like they are treated unfairly even when they are treated well. Maybe they felt like
Alanis POVI leave the room to allow Alpha Sebastian time to talk to Raul. I try not to listen to the discussion, but it gets louder as more wolves come into the house. Voices are raised, and tempers flare between the wolves of our pack. I hear them talking about Julian and her condition. I hope she is okay.As I stand as close to the door as possible, trying to listen, I hear footsteps. I move away from the door and sit down on the bed, waiting for Sebastian to come in and tell me what will happen next. Be strong, Alanis, I tell myself as I wait for my husband to come to talk to me. Alpha Sebastian peers in the door and then walks inside the bedroom to speak with me."Is she okay?" I ask.Alpha Sebastian shakes his head and then sits with me. He takes my hand and holds it, rubbing the top of my hand, trying to console me. "Julian is fine. She is tough. You have no idea how tough. She is raising hell
Alpha Sebastian POVI pull into the elder camp. One of the elders comes out to meet with Alanis and me. She gets out of the car and takes her bag. She looks back at me. She looks sad, but I have no choice. I cannot put her in danger. I know she will be safe here. I put my arms around her and gently kiss her."I love you. I will be back for you soon, trust me," I say to her."I love you, too," Alanis says as she walks away with one of the elders.One of the elders comes up to me as I watch Alanis walk to the cabin. "We will take care of your Luna," he says."I know. If I do not come back for her in the morning, make sure she is safe. Get her far away from her," I say."Yes, Alpha," the elder says.I leave Alanis with the elders at their camp. She is not happy about the situation but gives me no problems. The elders will take care of her, a
Alpha Sebastian POVAs night falls, we prepare to go into Alpha Jordon’s camp. I am ready, and my wolves are ready. I have always tried to handle things peacefully, but threatening my wife and my sister is not acceptable. Alpha Jordon putting my pack at risk is unacceptable, and turning my wolves against me is definitely not acceptable.Raul and Basil prepare three separate teams. I will take one unit of wolves, and Raul and Basil will each take a team. We will attack in unison from all sides. The main objective is to take down Alpha Jordon no matter who gets in the way. Jordon and his wolves will fall tonight. He is too much like his father to live.We each take out unit and begin to move through the woods toward the camp. We move quickly and are ready. We take our wolf forms to move faster and cause the most damage to anyone that gets in our way. Alpha Jordon's guards will go down first, then his second line of w
Alanis POV I look out and see a truck pulling up. One of the elders, Jolene, holds up her hand for me to wait. I stay still and watch from the window. Raul gets out of the truck and starts hollering for help. "Help!" The elders rush out of the cabin to his aid. Jolene stays with me. "You are important and have to be protected. Please, wait with me until we know what is happening," she says to me. I wait impatiently. If Alpha Sebastian is here for me, then I am ready to leave and be with him. I appreciate being here and being protected, but I long for my husband and to be with him. There is a lot of noise coming from outside. I get up to look out the window again. I see Raul and several elders helping Alpha Sebastian. There is blood, so much blood. I gasp. I run past Jolene and out the door. "Sebastian," I call out to him. Jolene runs behind me.
