"Gentlemen, I want you to meet my only son, Prince Nathan." Dad eagerly announced to hIs friends. Even dragged his eager smile to each of them, one by one. He could even smile after everything he has done to Ghino earlier. Not to mention we just got an intense debate before I rushed to school. "Your son looks promising as you are, don't you think." One of his friends eagerly stared at me. "I'm not here to get praised, dad." My eyes were locked on him viciously before I poured the bundles of money and Ghino's passport and visa to the ground. Everyone, excluding dad, got surprised about what I had just done. Their eagerness abruptly changed as though their high expectations of me turned to zero. Not to mention they all could sense how furious and deadly my eyes were while standing in front of his friends. "If you wanted to bribe someone with your stupidity, arrogance, and manipulation, Ghino is not the type of wolf who would buy them. Nice try... Dad!" I added.
Leaving no choice, I went back to the mansion with a heavy heart as though the world's problem had befallen me. Heavy enough my legs have lost their strength to walk forward. My arms got numbed to the point that I can't hold onto something. Lost the courage to face the world. Part of me wanted to just disappear and never come back. Without Ghino in my life, my world will be deserted. Colourless. Useless. And the worst of all, my wolf was similar to a corpse. As I was about to step into my room, Mum greeted me with a hard slap. But, on the bright side, my face could barely feel pain anymore. The numbness of my body had already consumed my feelings to feel something. "Is that all you could have, mum? I know you can do better than that." I declared. There goes my second slap from her. This time, my face got a slash from her fingernails. Still, the blood just dropped to my cheek and felt nothing. Maybe it's for the best. "Because of that bastard, you learned how to
As soon as Melissa and I settled inside my Lamborghini, I waited for dad's car to head out of the mansion first before I started the engine. "Do you mind if I ask what you guys discussed earlier before I showed up?" I was supposed to ignore it but, in some ways, part of me wanted to know. My wolf might have a few thoughts being stored in my brain about the possibilities. However, I had to make sure from Melissa herself. "Nothing, in particular, Nathan. Why do you ask? Do you expect your parents and I should discuss about?" Melissa defensively said back as she fastened her seatbelt. How could she consider it nothing in particular when I just witnessed the three of them laughing in unison? The worst part was that they stopped talking and gave me those guilty looks when they saw me approaching. "Nothing. It's just, that I noticed the three of you shared the same laugh and thoughts earlier. So, I was thinking if you told them about our wedding tomorrow." Could not
But no matter how hard I try reinstating the name who to be my better half, reality proves to me one thing that it will always be Melissa who was standing in front of me devoted to being my wife from that day forward, in sorrow and joy, to have and to hold, as long as we both shall live. Right after exchanging our vows, Melissa and I immediately went to the resort owned by my parents to extend our wedding celebration. Our honeymoon state. That night was a do-or-die choice for me. Ghino already chose his decision to break up with the ones he believed love exists. And I choose to be with Melissa for his sake. In addition to that, our honeymoon was inevitable. There was nothing more to tell about it in detail but it happened as part of the ceremony. Needless to say, I cheated on Ghino. "Are we doing the right thing, Nathan?" Melissa muttered as I was caressing her shoulder while we were lying on the same bed, still naked. "This is the right thing, Melissa. We both hav
"So, what do you suggest?" I need options. Could not just let that man, whoever he is, kidnap Melissa. I dragged my furious gaze back to the manager for not making his job properly. "If anything bad will happens to Melissa, it's on you, Mr. Manager." "I'm so sorry, Prince Nathan., he said in a worried tone. "I highly suggest you should communicate with the higher ops about the case, Prince Nathan." The IT Staff grabbed a piece of paper and pen and jotted down something. Afterward, he handed over the piece of paper to me and paused the CCTV Footage. "That's the description of the car and plate number the kidnapper used. Below it was the Sheriff's digits that could help you expedite the searching," he added. "Inside of this flash drive is also the copy of the footage for the cops' reference." "Thank you so much." I clapped his shoulder before I went back to the car. After talking to the Sheriff over the phone, I rushed to the precinct to explain everything t
"What do you want?" I cleared up my mind, setting aside everything from me; anger, hatred, exhaustion, and pride. Two wolves that were somehow labeled the most important beings were currently in the middle of uncertainties. The one that owns my heart and promised a forever. And the one whom I chose to mate and marry in order to uphold the dynasty my parents built for me. Meanwhile, Nadine and Edwin were all ears to the person talking with me over the phone. Though they might have pictures of what was completely going on, I still have no plan to involve either of them. The case was a bit risky for them. Let alone it already involves kidnapping and torturing. The three of them were valuable enough for Ghino. At least, if we are not on good terms anymore, he still has his friends to look out for him. "Let us know what we can do, Prince Nathan. Ghino's our friend too." Edwin said right away after the call ended. "Wait... You guys hear their conversations, right?"
My wolf exerted much of my strengths and power, trying to remove the ropes and chains they tied on my arms and legs. My wolf wanted to rip off the man's heart out of his chest when I could barely sense any lies in his words. Sadly, the more strength my wolf wielded, the weakened my body could get. When I dropped my gaze to the floor, I suddenly realized I was surrounded by wolfsbane and powder of mountain ash. As far as my knowledge is concerned, they were discovered to be two of our wolf's weaknesses. I don't know how long my wolf has been unconscious but with the lost strength in my body, I can assume that I've been out longer than my wolf expected. No wonder my wolf could barely untie the ropes and chains out of my arms and legs no matter how hard I tried. "Oh. There you are. Did you have a good night's sleep, Prince Nathan?" I quickly lifted my head to the man who just appeared in the room. He was holding a cam recorder and was pointing at me. "Denver?" I i
"Aside from loving the wrong person? I did not steal from someone or kill anyone. I'm not even sure what am I doing in this place." I breathed out my frustration to the man. Despite the utter frustration, I only get a vicious laugh from him and said, "it's all right to lie, son. I'm just trying to make real conversation here. But, let me give you this piece of advice, son. No matter what they do to you, especially the big boss, endure it. In that way, you'll live longer in this place like me." "I'm not lying. Someone kidnapped me and then dropped my body in this place. Where am I? What country is this?" "Welcome to Russia, my friend. The worst penitentiary has ever written in the world's history." He continued sipping the cigarette. Even blows the smoke right through my face. Then he offered the used cigarette to me but I refused. Smoking would be the last thing my wolf would do as my hobby. Its content will only kill my wolf sooner. "Russia?" He nodded. "I don't know if you're o
