Mei’s pov Things had been so bad. Most of my friends changed and apparently so did I. So when we would meet up, it was awkward and nothing like how it used to be. I had asked the Alpha for a job, but since I didn’t even finish high school, I didn’t have many experience or skill for a good job. In the end I got a job cleaning the Beta’s house. Me, the daughter of a Beta. It was embarrassing and people here really weren’t nice to their omega’s. I felt so silly and dumb. But most of all, I felt selfish. Fen had tried to convince me to just go back, that everyone wouldn’t be upset. But I felt like a failure. This had been my plan for years and now that I was doing it, I was going to give up after only a few weeks. I knew I could make this work. Maybe I needed this. Life had been pretty easy for me, well, except for losing my mom. I thought being here would make me feel closer to mom, but it didn’t. It was nice seeing the places I used to visit with her, but it also brought back the ba
Osiris pov “Why did she leave him like that?!” Lily shouted angrily. “They’re together now, so everything worked out right?” I asked. “He’s my baby brother and he deserves the world.” Lily said, “she is going to have to earn his forgiveness.” I wasn’t going to tell her that it sounded like Eddie already forgave Mei. “Good thinking, chose your mate’s side on this.” Santos advised. “They need some time I think.” I said, not knowing what else to say. “A lot of time and a lot of hard work. I still can’t believe Mei left without saying a word. And this is why she dumped him the first time?!” “Maybe she wanted to be close to her mom?” I asked. “Then she could have taken a trip there with Eddie! I can’t believe you’re defending her.” Lily shouted. “I can’t believe it either.” Santos said, “I told you, pick her side.” I sighed, I had no idea why Lily was so upset about this. I get that she was trying to protect her brother, but this was something else. Maybe she was on her period.
Osiris’ pov Mia offered to watch Kate, so Lily and I could see the midwife during school hours. We didn’t tell the kids yet, we wanted to be sure. Well, Lily wanted to be sure. I didn’t know why she felt like something was wrong or why it didn’t feel real to her. “Maybe because you didn’t plan this one?” Santos asked. Maybe, or it’s because she was on the pill. Or maybe she doesn’t want this baby? I wasn’t going to bombard my mate with questions, right now we only needed one answer. Was Lily really pregnant? Lily laid down on the table while the midwife inserted a big weird looking thing. “Just say it. It looks like a giant dildo.” Santos laughed. Apparently you can’t scan the belly yet at this time, but I wondered what the hell Lily was thinking while the doctor had this thing up there poking around. “It’s fine. It doesn’t hurt, just a bit uncomfortable.” Lily mindlinked me, clearly feeling my discomfort with the whole thing. We looked at the screen, while the doctor tried to
Lily’s pov I saw dr. Angela a few times and it helped. But what helped most was time. I really was happy with my life and Asher and Kate kept me really busy. Life went on and eventually so did I. Osiris was dealing with things in his own way, but we would go to our tree together and talk about it. It had been six months now and I was fine. I still didn’t want to try again though. Ariel and Ela had given birth, three weeks apart from each other and seeing these babies was beautiful and sad at the same time. It made me wonder how old my baby would be now, how he would look like. But I was happy for them. “I know you are. You can be happy and sad at the same time.” Arya said. I was painting a lot too, it helped me. I was currently working on a big canvas, trying to create something for Kate’s room. My baby girl was not such a baby anymore. She was so smart and talked like she was ten. I noticed her friends sometimes gave her a funny look, when she spoke. Except for Leia, that girl lov
Osiris’ pov “I want to talk to you about it first, because it might cause some issues amongst my daughters.” Alpha Edward sounded nervous on the phone. “I can come by the pack. Can I bring the kids, they have been asking to see their cousins.” I replied. “I’d love to see them. I’ll tell Charlotte and Eros you’re coming.” Edward said. I wondered what that was all about. “Maybe he finally wanted to hand the pack over to Eddie?” Santos asked. “That wouldn’t require talking to me first. It’s been fours years now. Eddie’s twenty two and he’s gone to school, traveled with Mei. He’s ready.” I replied. The only way we would find out, was by going there. Kate and Asher had been asking to go to their grandfather’s pack. They loved playing with Amelia, even though she was really bossy at times. And Kate loved the twins. Tao just turned eighteen and he hadn’t met his mate yet, but I was sure it wouldn’t be long. He was busy training to be Eddie’s Beta. It was like Riker heard me think abo
Lily’s pov “Please tell me, Os. Please.” I pouted. “I promised your dad. You’ll find out tomorrow.” “No, Os. I can’t wait. I have waited a month, tried to be patient. But I need to know who my dad is dating.” I replied. Osiris laughed, “my love. Patience.” I started kissing Osiris’ neck, right on his mark and tracing his abs with my fingers, down to his boxers. “I can reward you if you tell me.” Osiris growled in frustration, “I promised.” “I don’t care. Tell me.” I said as I slipped my hand inside his pants. “It’s Nora.” I let go off Osiris and stepped back surprised. Now Osiris was the one who was pouting, “what about my reward?” “One second, okay. How, why? Nora is like Charlotte’s age, why would she want my dad? Do they even have something in common?” Osiris sighed, “I don’t know. I didn’t ask. Your dad just said that he met her while he was scolding her son and that he’s scared to tell you all. She makes him happy though, I could tell.” She is nice. I spend some time
Osiris’ pov Now that the sisters and Eddie finally met Nora and they were okay with it, I could plan a run with Riker and Cyrus. Asher was big enough to hold onto me now. He was almost eight and already as tall as Lily. We’ve been training together and he is really strong and fast. “He’s going to be a good fighter.” Santos growled approvingly. He is such a sweet boy, but he is really protective of Katie, Sierra and Leia, which is cute to see. Cyrus came over, while the kids were playing outside. Riker and I were planning on running with the future Beta and Alpha another time, but this time was just for fun. Lily was going to take Kate with her for some girl time and Mia would take Roman to play with Rain, so no kid felt left out. “Are you fucking ready? I can’t wait to show Leia how fast her dad can go.” Cyrus said. Riker winked, “but not as fast as some of us.” “Fucker. No one can compete with Osiris, he is the fucking Alpha.” Cyrus laughed. “Let’s go get the kids.” I said, t
Osiris’ pov Ever since that first time, we’ve been running with the kids often. Sometimes Lily and Mia join and we take all the kids with us. Something it’s just the girls and moms that run together, but often it’s me, Ash, Riker and Sierra. The current Alpha and Beta and the future Alpha and Beta. I’ve been trying to teach Asher everything that’s important to me. I don’t know if it’s because I lost my parents so young and I wish I could have learned more from them. “You aren’t going anywhere. This pack is as safe as can be.” Santos tried to reassure me. But my parents were killed outside of our packgrounds, so you never know what could happen. I valued the time I spend with Asher and with Kate so much and they’ve both grown up so much. Asher was almost as tall as me and he was just fourteen. I really hope he doesn’t outgrow me, but I think since he has Lily’s genes too, I'll be safe. He has curls that Lily is crazy about, every time she gets the opportunity, she tries to run her
