"Are you going to tell me what that was about?" Damien finally says breaking the silence.
"How could the moon goddess do this to me?" I say staring out the window in front of me.
"What? What are you talking about?" He asked.
"I hate hybrids! She knows I hate hybrids!... Why would she do this to me?"
Who? What are you talking about? you're making no sense." He says confused.
"Is this about that one in the last cell?"
"Yeah." I say quietly.
"Man you gotta tell me... What's going on? You're making me nervous now.?
"It was my mate." I say.
I jerk forward as the tires screech, the car jerking off to the side. The car finally come into a stop.
"Are you fucking kidding me! That was your mate and you just left him back there? What the fuck is wrong with you?"
I look over at him after I pulled my stomach out of my ass from his little stunt.
"You may be my cousin but watch the way you fucking talk to me! I am your Alpha now!" I say, pissed.
"I'm sorry about that man. But how could you do that? How could you leave your own mate back there like that?"
"I don't know." Was all I could say.
"Just drive." I say to him looking back out the window in front of me.
"Where too? Back there to get your mate or home without our Luna."
My head snaps back at him, "that hybrid is not your Luna!" I say firmly.
"Wow man!" Damien says as he starts to drive back home.
"Wow!" He said again.
Neither one of us say another word the whole way home. As soon as we got home he jerked the car to a stop, opening his door then slamming it before storming off into the house.
I'm left sitting there trying to wrap my head around everything. I slowly make my way out the car walking back into the pack house.
"Hey honey how was your visit at Ace's pack today?" I hear my dad say. I just look over at him but couldn't form any words. I slowly turn toward the stairs and head upstairs to my room.
"Honey? Is everything okay? I hear my dad say, but I don't respond. I just keep walking up the stairs.
I feel numb and I take my clothes off stepping into the shower. I feel like the stench from the dungeon seeped into my pores. I can still smell it on my skin.
I get in the shower turning it on as hot as I can, feeling my skin burn as it turns red. I grab the loofah, drenching it in soap before scrubbing my body as hard as I can. I scrub harder as I feel my shoulders shake realizing I'm crying. I crumpled to the floor under the water as it pours down on me.
I bring my knees up folding my arms on top of them and dropping my head onto my arms as I cry.
I just left him there....
My heart hurts that I just left him in there like that. How could I do that.
I squeeze my eyes tight as I ball up my fist, throwing my head back against the wall as I open my mouth and scream as loud as I can.
I crumpled to the floor laying down as I cry... I sob.
I hear banging at the door and my father's voice on the other side.
I don't say anything, I just lay there crying.
I hear the door break open as my father comes rushing in, opening the door and scooping me up off the floor.
He pulls me into his lap and I throw my arms around him, my face going into his neck as I cry.
"Son, hey it's okay.... It's okay now.
What's wrong, what happened?"I hear my father's soothing voice say.
"I left him there father, I left him there!"I say as I cry harder.
"Who? Who did you leave, and where?" My father asked.
"My mate. I just left him there."
My father says trying to pull my face back but I don't let him, I just hold on tighter. I can't look at him. I don't want him to see the person that did this. That left his own mate back there.
"What are you talking about son? Where did you leave him?" He asked sounding concerned now.
"In the dungeon... At aces.I fucking left him in there." I say as I cry harder.
My father prise me off of him forcefully. He holds me at arm's length away, his hands gripping me harshly.I can feel his fingers digging into my skin.
"What the fuck are you talking about!?" He yells.
We're now sitting in my father's office. Well technically it's my office now, but it seems at this moment it's still his.
My father forced me to tell him everything that happened. I told him what we saw. I told him about the hybrids and the condition that they were in. How they were being treated. I told him my mate was in there and was one of them.
"I can't believe you went there, with the intentions that you did. I raised you better than that!
I am glad that you came to your senses once you got down there and realized how wrong that was."
"As for your mate. I hate to say this but you did the right thing by leaving him there.
"What!?" Damian yells standing up.
My dad growls at him, staring him in the eyes. Damien whimper's baring his neck while sitting back down.
"I'm sorry sir." He says.
My father looks back at me. "Like I was saying, it was the right thing to do, to leave him there. But not for the reasons you're thinking Damien!"He says glancing back over at him.
"I don't think Ace would have let you take him out of there. Not alone at least.
I think all hell would have broke loose if you would have said he was your mate and tried to take him with you."
I was relieved that my father said that. Because I was initially surprised thinking he actually wanted me to leave him there.
"I want you to let him know we're coming back over there.
And we're all going." He said.
"Who is all?" I asked
"Your dad and your aunt for starter since those twins are almost unstoppable. And we're bringing Xander and Marcus." My father said
"Damien you're staying here. You're the beta now so you're going to take care of the pack while we're gone."
"Yes sir!" Damian says slightly bowing his head.
I'm going with you to make sure you keep your cool. I know you can get a little hot headed and we need to do this the right way. We don't need to be starting any wars.
My Father's eyes glaze over for a moment before returning to normal.
"I already talked to to them before speaking to you guys so they're already aware of the situation. They're going to meet us outside in 10 minutes." My father says standing up.
"Reid go get ready so we can leave. Let's go get your mate!"
*** Trigger Warning! Abuse and rape mentioned in this chapter. *** Reid's POV I called Ace and apologize for leaving the way I did and asked if I could come back. Of course he was more than happy to have me come back. I however did fail to mention that I was bringing the gang along. "I can't believe you guys made me sit back here!" I hear Xander complain from the very back end of the SUV. There's six of us and the SUV only seats five so Xander was stuck sitting in the back. We could have taken more than one car but we also didn't tell Ace there are more people coming. We wanted to keep one car just like last time. As we pull up to the pack house I see Ace walking out the door with a smile on his face. His smile qui
*** Trigger Warning! Abuse and rape mentioned in this chapter. *** Reid's POV After passing two more guards doing the same thing, we finally make it to the end. The last cell on the right. I look into the cell and see he's still in the same exact spot. My stomach drops and I feel my blood run cold as I'm not even sure if he's alive. "Well, here we are!" Ace says as he sticks the key in the door before opening it. He looks in the cell, "yep, I'm going to miss this one! I had a lot of fun with him if you know what I mean. " He says looking at me while wiggling his eyebrows. I clenched my jaw and squeeze my fist tight as I try to control myself. I can feel my wolf pressing forward wanting out. Wanting to tear Ace to shreds. My dad gi
Reid's POVAs we're pulling up to the pack house I mind linked Damien asking him to fill my bathtub for me.My dad walks over opening the door for me and I climb out with my mate in my arms.The movement of me getting out of the car must have woke him. He opened his eyes looking around. He instantly gets scared when he sees pack members walking around.He clings to me, holding on for dear life while his body trembled violently. His breathing picked up as tears rolled down his face.I looked around and noticed several people looking at him. Some surprised but most looked at him in horror.I looked down and realized the blanket have fallen off of him and that's why he was getting the looks that he was.Everyone could see the horrible state he was in. I quickly bend over picking up the blanket before draping it
Reid's POVI took the towel and moved it around drying him off before standing up and heading into my room.I walked over to the bed and laid him down before I walked back into the bathroom. I grabbed the first aid kit then walked back over to him, slowly sitting on the edge trying not to scare him.I applied some peroxide on a cotton pad then brought it up to his cheek. He flinched back as I approached his face with my hand and I paused."I just want to clean your wound so it doesn't get any worse than it already is. It might sting a little bit but I'm not trying to hurt you."I slowly move my hand forward again, dabbing his cheek. He hissed and flinched once the peroxide got into the wound on his cheek."I'm sorry, I know it hurts but I have to clean it out okay." I proceeded to move forward again and this time he let me clean
Reid's POV I was just coming out of the bathroom when my dad knocked on the door twice before entering with a tray of food. Julian instantly grabbed the pillow and held it in front of him tightly as he looked at my dad terrified. It almost looked as if he was holding the pillow trying to hide behind it. My dad instantly noticed this and froze. He glanced at me then back at Julian. "Julian, it's okay this is my dad Aiden. He means you no harm, he won't hurt you. He just brought some food up for you." I said trying to calm him down. My dad slowly approached setting the tray on the table next to the bed. My dad turned to me and said, "I think it's probably best if I leave you too alone. He probably needs some more time to get used to you." He glances back at Julian, giving him a smile before turning and leaving the bedroom. I take a deep breath and release it before walking over and grabbing the food. I smile when I realize it's pizza night. The tray is loaded with different vari
Julian's POV I woke up to a strange sensation on my shoulder. I felt this tingling sensation running from my shoulder, down my arm and threw my chest. I bit my lip so I don't make a sound as I roll onto my back. The pain from last night is unbearable. I know better than to make a sound. They want you to cry, they want you to scream out in pain. They thrive on it. It only excites them more. Most people here have learned to suppress their fears and cries. Even those that have only been here for a short time. But for some reason I have not.... It's not like I haven't been here for that long. I actually have. Probably longer than most people. I was born here.My mother was captured while pregnant and gave birth to me in this hell hole. She was tortured while pregnant with me. Then once she had me they left her alone for a short time. Until I was strong enough to not be on her teets. Then they ripped me from my mother and continue to torture her until I was strong enough. Then they
Julian's POV I looked at my body after he walked away. He said he cleaned my wounds and had to bandage them. I have these strange things all over my body now covering the wounds. They never cared about fixing my wounds. I've never had anybody try to make them better. Only make them worse and add more. I was so confused by his actions. I can't figure him out. I keep expecting him to hurt me but he hasn't yet. Instead he does this, try to fix them. "I know these are probably not going to fit you, but I thought you might want to put something on." The man said. I didn't understand what he meant. Does he want me to put that stuff on my body like he does? He place them in front of me and I look at him, then back at the stuff he placed in front of me. " It's clothes, You can go ahead and put them on, it's okay." The man said. Still not wanting to talk because I'm not really used to using my voice. I'm not used to being allowed to use my voice. I points at the clothes then at myself.
Julian's POV I wake up warm and comfortable. I slowly stretch my body, as I move I realize I'm laying on the soft comfortable thing again and become confused. I open my eyes and look around. I am back on the warm comfy thing. And he covered me up again. I looked around and I don't see him anywhere, but I do hear water running in the other room. I sit up when I hear the water turned off a few minutes later. I feel my wolf push forward when he walks out of the room where the water was. We both look at him as he walks out with just pants on hanging low and he's wiping his face with one of those towels. He doesn't have anything on his chest and I find my eyes roaming his chest, admiring it. His skin isn't white like mine. It's darker and I can't see any of his bones like I can on myself.His body has all these round firm muscles on his chest and arms. Over his stomach there's defined lines going all the way down to his pants. I look at the lines that disappear below his pants and my wo
