"So, you have lived there for months," Faith turned her index finger towards Ruhee, "and you, for almost your whole life."
"Well, not exactly my whole life but go on."
"And yet, none of you know any damn numbers to contact them?" Faith squinted her eyes as she looked between both of us.
We were sitting in the airport and Faith was keeping her word to accompany us to the palace.
"I didn't have a phone and I have a goldfish memory when it comes to numbers," I defended myself.
"I never had anyone to call," Ruhee lifted her right shoulder casually, "I was living in the palace or the mansion, and whenever they needed me to do some work I was there."
Ruhee said every word without any emotion. Faith glanced at me and I shook my head slightly, giving her a hint to not continue the conversation. I did not want Faith to ask something that might hurt Ruhee's feelings.
"What are you doing?" I tried to peek into Faith's ph
I loosened my hold on the dagger when the man fell on the ground and Amber was standing behind him with a smirk.She took a large step and extended her hand in my direction. I looked at her hand skeptically and dragged my eyes towards the man on the ground. There were no signs of injury on his body but he was not moving at all."Is he..""Yep," she did not let me complete the sentence."But how..""Burrowed a little gift from your sister," she answered taking her hand away when I stood up without her help."What did you do? If anything happened to my sister..." I pointed my index finger at her.She rolled her eyes, "Relax, I have no interest in getting my nails dirty with the hunter's blood.""What are you doing here?" I kept an eye on my surroundings not trusting Amber. If she was here, it meant trouble was around as well."In case you failed to notice, I saved your life," she ended the sen
Pairs of eyes kept looking at me as I passed the familiar hallway but none of them uttered a word. It was evident in their eyes they wanted to say something but the fear was making them stay silent.I bit the inside of my cheeks and continued walking, barely keeping my excitement to see Damien. I did not know how he would react but it was time for him to know everything....everything about the person who killed his mother. The person who was living with them and waiting to stab them.Two guards were standing at the entrance of the left-wing but other than them no one was there. Damien did not like people entering his personal space and the guards earlier were for my protection when he was not in the palace.I opened the door of the bedroom where the scent of Damien welcomed me. I smiled looking at the flames burning in the fireplace and the chair in front of it.Damien was in the room."Damien, I know this must be a surprise
"Someone help, GUARDS," I screamed from the top of my lungs but the defeating silence was the only response I got as I ran towards the doorway of the left wing.I stopped running when I caught the horrific sight of guards on the floor with blood pooling around their bodies. There were no other guards in the entire hallway. I had a feeling there were no guards in the palace, if there were, they should have been here by now.I had to reach the main door and warn the guards outside but the time was not on my side, Lilith must be almost healed by now."There she is," a large man screamed running in my way with a wicked smile on his lips.I started running but it was of no use as the man shifted into a sandy wolf midway. I was thrown to the ground, there was nothing I could use to defend myself. Just when I thought my end was near a vicious growl fell into my ears and the sandy wolf turned towards the sound but it was too late for him. A large blac
Two weeks had passed. The icy walls of the palace had witnessed the gruesome sight of the murder of the King, Queen of the werewolf kingdom by Lilith and so many other wolves who were murdered by her to achieve the goal. I could not say everything went back to normal because the truth was far away from it. Damien was with me but he was not the same after losing his family. He did not only lose his father that day but his mother too, even though Lilith did not feel the same Damien always loved her like his real mother. Lilith was still in the cells, she would not say anything and would barely eat the food, there was regret in her eyes but it was not for her actions it was for her son. Luca was a whole other story, he was alive only because the dagger did not pierce through his heart but he was unconscious and not healing like he normally should. He survived thanks to the Alpha of the crescent pack, he had some contact with the witches who were ki
