“That was pretty hot seeing her take control, it reminded me of when she used to get mad at you” Santos said. I laughed “I thought you were too busy trying to kill Gamma Leo to see Lily.” Santos was trying really hard to take over and kill Gamma Leo on the spot, but I didn’t want to snap his neck while everyone was watching me. I wanted the pack to see that I was different from my brother. But apparently Santos had still time to appreciate our mate. “I can multi-task you know. Lily always comes first even if I was looking forward to killing that bastard slowly for calling her a bitch.” I might still kill Gamma Leo, I just needed to discuss some things with the pack first. Neron had told everyone to come over tonight, so Lily and I still had some time left to finish what we started.
I grabbed Lily’s hand and took her back to the packhouse, almost running. “Why are you in such a hurry?” Lily asked curiously. I didn’t say a word until we were in our
Lily’s pov I knew Osiris hated public speeches, but to be honest I hadn’t done many my self and I was so damn nervous. I had seen how people reacted when I talked in this pack and so far it wasn’t that great. “So this is your chance to show them what a Luna is supposed to sound like,” Arya encouraged. I wonder what happened to the Luna of this pack, did Alpha Kendrick even have a mate? I would have to ask Osiris about this later, because right now we were waiting for everyone to arrive before we took the stage. It was really last minute, so I don’t even know if you could call it a stage. They just placed to boxes on the ground to make people see us better. We might as well just used chairs at this point. I was too small even standing on a box to tower over some of the larger pack members, so I got two boxes stacked up. It felt like I was literally standing on a soapbox, but I had to do this for Osiris. I could do this. Osiris started to talk and everyone bec
Osiris’ pov Lily was raging beside me, clearly pissed that I let Neron and Jean off so easily. Santos was equally pissed and trying to take over “they hired the rogues. They hired Arden. If it wasn’t for them our mate wouldn’t have been taken. They killed our pack members!” I tried to calm Santos down “I know, but I can’t take another child from my grandmother. And they have kids. I can’t start killing people on the first day here.” I turned my attention to Lily, Santos would have to wait. “Lily please. I need you to calm down. Go outside if you can’t.” Lily looked at me pissed and walked away. “This is not over,” she mindlinked me. “You have every right to be angry, but I can’t just kill him. Not in front of his mother, not after she just got him back.” Lily walked outside and I send a soldier to trail behind her. I turned to face Neron, Jean and Dionne. “You can say your goodbyes, pack your things and leave.” I locked eyes with Dionne, she nodded as if she underst
Lily’s pov I was glad Dionne said yes, even though it was super awkward at first. I had just threatened her son and Osiris had banished him and stripped him of his title. I knew she understood why Osiris made this decision, but it must be hard for her. Everywhere we walked people stared at us, some with happiness as if they finally felt free from under Alpha Kendrick’s thumb. But I also saw plenty of pack members that looked at us with disgust, hatred or fear. I knew Osiris had a reputation of being a ruthless killer, but it never bothered me. Even when I disliked Osiris, I still wasn’t scared by him. But walking with him through town and seeing all these looks I realized they must think the same about me now. Part of me laughed. If only they knew what I was thinking inside. I really wasn’t someone they should be scared about. “Aren’t you though? Aren’t you the same Luna who rescued Osiris from Kendrick? That stopped Gamma Leo and Neron from fighting with your voice
Osiris’ pov Goddess, how I hate numbers. Riker is meticulous with our finances and he makes sure everything is easy for me to find. He has excel sheets and diagrams, everything to make it effortless for me. It is not that I don’t know how to do this, Beta William taught me when my parents died. I just don’t like it. “Stop whining like a bitch and get this done so you can go and get your reward” Santos said annoyed. It’s not like he likes numbers anymore than I do. I sat down behind Kendrick’s desk and looked through all the files until I found was I was looking for. Turns out Kendrick was spending all the pack money on one goal, to get us back. There had been very little money given to education, but a lot to training. Maybe that’s why Gamma Leo was so loyal, he was getting a big paycheck. It looked like the money that Kendrick had came from selling ground, that must have been when he took over other packs. He also seemed to lend out his soldiers to other pa
Osiris’ pov “Alpha Osiris there is a large group of near the border. We are trying to keep them from escaping, but there are too many of them.” I knew Lily and Dionne would follow me wherever I headed so I ran to the location where my soldiers were as fast as possible. A group of wolves was fighting and I could see my soldiers were losing, so Lily and I jumped right in. This pack had already lost so many members, so I’d rather not kill more. But they came at us in full force, not holding back and clearly wanted us dead. “Let’s give them hell,” Santos said as we charged ahead. I threw two wolves of me and saw a larger wolf headed straight for Lily and Dionne. Dionne’s wolf seemed to have some animosity towards this wolf, because she growled and roared like something I hadn’t seen before. “That must be Gamma Leo” Lily said, “I’ll keep your grandma safe.” I was busy at the other side of the group, five wolves were fighting me at once and they proves more difficul
Lily’s pov After Osiris finally put me down I dried off and put some clothes on. We had skipped dinner to fight and the apple pies were still in the kitchen. “All you think about is food,” Arya joked. I laughed “I can’t help it if the food here is so bland. I was finally able to eat something with sugar and stupid Gamma Leo ruined it with his people.” I was joking of course, although I really was hungry. I hated that some people still tried to rebel against us, when all we tried to do was make the pack better. We didn’t punish anyone that didn’t deserve it, Osiris even spared Neron’s and Jean’s life. Osiris got dressed too and then took a deep breath “I don’t know if you heard me, but I gave Neron and Jean a chance to come back. They helped you instead of siding with Gamma Leo and, -” I interrupted Osiris “it’s fine. You don’t have to explain it to me. Maybe I was too harsh on them. Alpha Kendrick sounded like a guy you didn’t cross so they must have been scar
Osiris’ pov It’s been two weeks since we’re back at the Iron River pack. Like Emma suggested we asked my grandmother if she wanted to help us run the Midnight Blood pack in our absence. She accepted, but only if she could get the help from Neron and Jean. Dionne really seems to trust them, but I just hoped they would follow her lead. I wasn’t fully convinced I made the right decision so I promised I’d be back by the end of the month to check on them. Lily wanted to join, but her brother’s birthday was that week and she had planned to go back with Emma to surprise him. So for the first time since she was back we would be apart again. But luckily it wouldn’t be for another two weeks so I was planning to make the most our time here. Now that the Midnight Blood pack was part of our pack we were the largest pack in the country and that title came with it’s responsibilities. I had been working a lot, finding out which of the Midnight Blood’s allies we could trust.
Lily’s pov I really loved this date so far. I felt guilty for being annoyed with Osiris before. I wasn’t sure if he actually was annoying or I was just too hormonal. Why didn’t anyone warn me that stop taking your pill would have such an impact. I didn’t trust my own feelings, I was angry all the time, I cried a lot and I was either really horny or not into sex at all. Luckily for Osiris I was feeling good today and this date really helped. After swimming in the ocean we got back to our clothes and I put my wet underwear off and my dress on. Seeing I wasn’t wearing any underwear made Osiris crazy, but he would have to wait. I wasn’t going to have sex on the beach and get sand everywhere. Osiris did the same thing and we carried our underwear to the car that wasn’t parked far away from where we swam. Osiris grabbed the overnight bag out of the backseat and tucked the wet underwear inside, “the hotel is actually not far from here, we can walk.” The hotel Osiri
