The sense of impending doom had vanished. Gior found himself panting as he attempted to awaken from a deep slumber. His wounds still cause him some discomfort.Unlike the grass and rough stone where he had fallen while unwittingly fighting a vampire, the bed where he was presently felt soft.The memories of the recent fight came crashing into him as soon as he recalled the bloodsucking creature—one more deep breath as he sat up with sweat flowing all over his body. "W-where am I?" He asked in a hoarse voice. His throat became dry, rendering him unable to speak.His eyes scanned the familiar ceiling and everything. It looks like they've gone back to the pack, at least that's what he thought. It means that they successfully completed the mission, which solved the pack storage shortage. "The Alpha is awake!" As soon as she saw Gior move, the salutary announced. A couple of howls soon followed, and they can be heard outside of the place. The werewolves who were terrified and heartbroken
The gathering took place at the pack house. They are getting ready by informing every warrior wolf, even the wolves who are not yet trained, want to participate and protect their pack. The quiet and serious vibe going around was interrupted when human servants came running and barging. She's demanding for an answer."What do you mean, Aesthelia didn't come back with you?" Marie questioned the wolf who happened to go with the mission. She grabbed him by the clothes near his collar. Her strength seemed to match the wolf's. Marie just got the news of their arrival and came running as if her life was at stake. Aesthelia was like Marie's family. She lived most of her life taking care of Aesthelia and dedicated her life to Aesthelia's safety."Third-in-Command Aesthelia escorted us as soon as we were within the shield. She dashed off and disappeared. " A warrior wolf said patiently with more details. The disruption caught almost everyone's attention, including the higher wolves and the a
There's no window, no light, and nowhere to escape to, except the tunnel. There is an escape route, but there is a high chance that they will end up in the ocean and drown.Aesthelia stayed hidden unbelievably for at least two days, waiting for Elliot's recovery along with Custos', who had exhausted his mana to its limit.Goodthing. The vampires didn't seem to eagerly check the underground, or else they'd die without much fight. The smell of dried blood of deceased prisoners masked Aesthelia's and Elliot's scents. The awful and wrenching smell helped them, even though it made Aesthelia vomit. It seems the situation made her overcome her fear of blood. She doesn't have much choice at this point."AGH…" Elliot groaned in pain as he was slowly gaining consciousness.Aesthelia swiftly goes to Elliot's side to assist him. "W-where am I?" Elliot asked worriedly. He's unable to get up and his visions are out. "We're hiding in the underground dungeon." "We are safe for now, but I don't kno
The more her breath hitches, the more her heart beats. Lurking inside the enemy's dangerous teritorry can be nerve-wrecking and terrifying. Aesthelia felt like she will bath on her own nervous sweat. She wanted to ignore how her knee trembled for a second when the vampire stared down at her earlier—she felt as if the vampire could have snapped her neck in a minute. The eyes of predators who carefully observe their prey's movements are far scarier than any horror films she has seen."The difference is—I am one of the people who's on the death list now." Aesthelia was lost in her own thoughts. She voiced them out with a sadder-chuckling tone. At least Merideth is with them right now. They can get closer and interrogate the vampire to plan the escape. Aesthelia can relax, but she remains vigilant—a traitor who has betrayed you once can betray you again.For some time, Elliot managed to walk little by little until he could perfectly walk without limping. Aesthelia's worry is reduced. "
Aesthelia collided with Gior's arm. That is when they clearly felt the spark when their skin touched. It only means they are fated to be mates—mates with an uncontrollable bond. Gior snapped out of his anger. He became relaxed under Aesthelia's touch, and he almost lost all of his reasoning earlier when he saw Aesthelia's being injured and just mindlessly attacked.This is the first time Aesthelia realized it. Now that explains why Aesthelia shows that behavior. The hostility against Merideth, how her wolf disappeared, and why her emotions are affected by anything that involves Gior."We are mates?" Aesthelia asked in confusion. However, Aesthelia already knew the answer. "Yes." Gior said, straight-staring at her eyes. His eyes became soft; the relentlessness that he felt vanished in an instant."What a sweet reunion that you have forgotten about me," The vampire king muttered amused while clapping his hands, trying to gain everyone's attention. "How can I forget about you?""When
The strategic defense of Aesthelia is like an iron wall. No vampires could pass through, and by the time Aesthelia decided to go—it started crumbling a little. The absence of a strategist made the team hesitate."Keep pushing, warriors!" Flo shouted, which made everyone snap out of it. He took over coaching immediately.Flo quickly stood on his feet as he transformed back. As a beta, it is his obligation to lead. "Do as he says," Marie commanded her fellow-humans.Marie grabbed the sword. She was about to go, to protect her lady, but Flo intervened and said, "Marie, snap out of it." When Flo touches Marie, a flash of spark flows through him. He knew at that moment that Marie was his mate. The sudden realization took him seconds as his eyes drowned deep in his own mate's eyes. He momentarily forgot the situation they were in— not until Marie struggled to get out of his touch."Aesthelia has the blessing." She can defeat him. " Flo stated, and he added, "You are much needed here to k
The relationship between humanity and supernatural creatures has greatly improved. Each person has a certain task to complete. Despite the setbacks, they are driven to continue living. Despite the fact that the werewolves had nothing to do with the humans, the war was won. They offered to assist in relocating the bodies and properly buried them. countless unforeseen tragedies.Time flew by.And after a year, the empires that were on the edge of collapsing from the vampires' attempts at oppression are now little by little recovering from the casualties caused by the war. Everyone is in a state of grief for the losses, but they know that sooner or later they have to embrace everything that happened.The empire that was once sparkling with elegance was left as an abandoned and hunted castle. No one dared to stay in it as it reminded them of how tragic it was last year.The survivors once again built new infrastructure and repaired what was destroyed.The supernatural beings who were hidi
Gior felt himself falling from an average height, which caused the pain he was experiencing to lessen. The portal appears to be hanging in the air. The shivering cold air seized control of the burns he was already feeling.Gior attempted to close his eyes in order to concentrate on shifting, but to no avail. He found it impossible. Gior plummeted to the ground face first in a couple of seconds before he can even even think of a solution.He quickly raised to his feet and massaged his nose. The mud on his clothing was brushed off. His wandering gaze discovered him encircled by tall trees.After him, there was another deafening thud.Gior asked with wide eyes, "What were you guys thinking by following me here? Do you guys know how dangerous it is?"Without really caring about the enraged Alpha, Flo assisted Marie in getting to her feet and checked on his mate. He turned his head to face the Alpha after making sure Marie was in fact fine and had no scratches."Let me ask you, Alpha, what
