Business continued as usual, each day becoming busier as the official launch for Taleman’s eastern Europe venture. The number of meetings packed his schedule, and Richard didn’t know how many people he had to meet. The cheek muscles were aching badly from smiling for prolonged periods.
The two men found it harder to juggle work and private lives with the full moon approaching. Darren, who was normally not as active as Ludwig, was more feral while Ludwig’s activeness shot through the roof. Not even the thought of increased homework or grounding can stop him from climbing the walls and snarling. The two boys kept fighting over little things and sometimes nothing at all. Yet, they couldn’t blame the pups for behaving in such a manner.
The full moon was when shifters were the closest to the origin energy. It awakened primal instincts within
The launch of a business venture to Eastern Europe was an astounding success. Favian and Richard were exhausted by the end of the week, but there were more concerning issues. Both men immediately applied for leave with HR in the name of a family emergency, not caring about proper procedures, not that the HR manager they hired minded. Even though she was unmarried, she appreciated dedicated family men who were successful at their careers.Escaping the congratulatory party swiftly, the werewolves drove back at top speed in the middle of the afternoon back to the Blue Moon mansion. Unlike jostling with the evening crowd, they managed to escape from the airport in half the time they normally took. Ambrose has not texted them anything about the pups and their full moon process. It was worrying.Stopping by the side house, neither man bothered changing their suits. T
Avoiding the thorns to the best of his abilities, Richard eventually found a path to the dilapidated toolshed. The basket outside the door smelled like sandwiches, and the CEO even spotted a bottle of juice included. More curiously, there was a bottle of milk and some cooked chicken hiding at the bottom of the basket.Knock! Knock!Some shuffling sounds were coming from inside the toolshed, but the door did not open.“Oliver, it’s me. Can I come in?”Richard couldn’t hear anything from inside the toolshed for a good while. Normally, the passive pup would open the door for Richard immediately, no matter the situation. It didn’t matter if he accidentally wet his bed, cried, suffered a terrible black eye or had a nightmare. Oliver would always
When Richard entered the mansion with a sleeping child and a grey-furred wolf pup, Favian quickly offered to take the child from his arms, and the two boys crowded around to see their new brother.Unlike human children, werewolves are born as wolves influenced by origin energy after living in the Fenrir’s forest. They slowly evolved into creatures with higher intelligence and would gain their shapeshifting abilities over time. Once they could assume their human forms, their animal instincts would slowly become dormant. Shifting between both forms will take training.However, they were no less troublesome than taking care of newborn infants. Although newly awakened werewolves assumed a pup form, they had the intelligence of at least a human two-year-old and were curious about everything. Their desires to hunt, fight, play, eat, and hunger for affection cou
“You want to do what?” Favian’s tone was razor-sharp, even if it was soft.Richard wasn’t deceived. Despite the soft volume, the secretary’s words held a dangerous edge to them. It was simply the calm before the storm, but Richard could still salvage it and prevent a typhoon if he played his cards right.Nervously, Richard did his best to keep his voice steady and expression neutral. He might be the alpha of his pack, but Favian was still rather scary to Richard. Even Ambrose trod with caution when the secretary was enraged. He might not be physically powerful, but his devious mind could reduce even the president to a beggar on the streets if he wanted to.“We have too many pups now and too little time to care for all of them with the frequent business trips coming up for th
After speaking with his pups, the Fenrir and Favian, Richard looked at the list of criteria his pack had for the new governess. The CEO wondered if such a person existed in reality. Even if he were to compromise on his ideals, Ambrose and the pups’ criteria were way over what a governess or maid did.No, they didn’t want a tutor or a helper. They literally wanted a mate for their alpha or a mother. Neither of those was things that Richard could employ. These positions came with more responsibility than any paycheque.Ambrose wanted the human helper to be strong enough to lead the pack and nurture the young into promising warriors. The human helper must train the pups for whatever reason to fend against danger and hunt for them. Honestly, this wasn’t the fifth century. There was no reason to be doing these things. The Luna doesn’t actuall
It was ten in the morning, but already, Favian had used up all his patience for the day. After meeting the first two candidates, he wanted to cancel all the interviewees scheduled to come. If it wasn’t for Richard’s angelic personality, he would have sued the nanny matching agency for providing scam artists instead of professional caretakers.Not mentioning how the ladies didn’t match the pictures sent. Some didn’t even speak proper English despite graduating from one of the top universities in the world, majoring in English literature.How could they entrust the pups to any of these worthless interviewees? It was better for them to learn under Ambrose’s tail than to have stupidity rub on them. Favian refused to give any of the candidates they viewed a chance to even step foot into Blue Moon Mansion. After three painful weeks of searching, shortlisting, interviewing, Richard and Favian were forced to admit it was futile.Logically, they understood that it wasn’t the pups’ fault that every single candidate who turned up for the trial ended up resigning after a day. They weren’t very good candidates and couldn’t meet even half of the criteria everyone wanted. However, good talent was hard to find.“Could you tell me why the most recent caretaker decided that she didn’t want to show up anymore?” Richard asked over dinner as the three unhappy boys stared at their plates.William was starting to show signs of minor transformation, getting more used to human speech and walking on his hind legs. Everyone was excited to see William’s transformation, but the grey-furred shi

With every passing day, the Taleman empire’s handsome CEO and secretary duo looked more haggard. The office ladies frowned and whispered in pity at the pathetic state of their eye candy bosses. Despite the efforts to look fresh and professional, the tell-tale sign of sleep deprivation beneath their eyes could not be hidden. Their perpetual coffee breaths and lackluster smiles broke hearts. However, the stubborn CEO and his aide wouldn’t accept any help from concerned employees.Only the HR team knew the true reason for their haggard appearance. Ever since the search for caretakers began, CEO Taleman and Mr Beowulf looked more irritated and lifeless. Many candidates came and left the Taleman CEO’s office but none of them stayed long enough to lighten the personal burdens of the single father. The HR manager wouldn’t be surprised by their fickleness. None of them was qualified for the
