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.
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
Five minutes ago, Richard received a new message from the stand-in shifter tutor complaining about his pups’ conduct. Oliver started learning the bad influences from his older brothers and refused to do as he was told. Even though he wasn’t the worst troublemaker, he was still a fussy fluffball to manage.Immediately after the text, the CEO’s personal phone rang. Before the CEO could greet the other party, he was dropped with terrible news. The nightmares he had were coming true.“I’m quitting by the end of this week. Please find someone else to babysit your pups. I can’t deal with them.”It was the fifth time the shifter caretaker tried to resign, and the first few times, they were able to convince him to stay by increasing his pay. The last time he tried to quit, they redu
When Favian heard that his boss was going to interview a shortlisted candidate recommended by their HR, he almost booked himself the first flight back until Richard convinced him that he wouldn’t hire her on the spot.“You can sit in the interview and grill her if you want. Just stay in Lithuania and relax. Even if we don’t have a caretaker for the boys, Ambrose can look after them until you return for her trial period if you like her enough.”Hearing Richard’s promise to not act rashly, the secretary calmed down. However, he wasn’t convinced to leave Richard alone to meet her personally after hearing how Richard’s inner wolf felt about the candidate.“I’m going to ask Annie to sit in with you. She knows more about the school’s education requirements and ch
