Jared's Pov.I had been waiting for close to thirty minutes yet no sign of him. Did he think I was a joke? Had he deliberately accepted to meet me just to stand me up for hours? I raked a finger through my hair, trying to control my anger as I stood at the foot of the baobab tree we had agreed to meet at. This spot was one of the secret places we could meet and I had personally chosen it so we could have our conversation without being seen by nosy wolves in the pack. I let out a big sigh, still wondering if I had been played. Had he done this just to get back at me? I didn't want to believe that I had been stupid enough to get played on like this. To be honest, I would not be surprised if he didn't show up. Somehow, I was expecting him not to. It had been years since we last had a proper conversation and I was not sure he liked me anymore to want to be around me. Nevertheless, he should have just told me he was not going to come rather than lead me on only to abandon me to my fate
Aiden was starting to feel discouraged after running for a while without any sight of the alpha. He had no idea if he had followed the exact path she had taken but he had seen some paw prints on the wet ground and had simply followed. But currently, he was beginning to doubt if those paws belonged to the alpha.Wiping the sweat that had now creased his brow, he sighed heavily, wondering if he should just return or continue his search. Would she even want to see him? After listening to Kunata say shit about him, he was not so confident about the Alpha's feelings for him anymore. Though she had not said anything bad about him — except that she would kill him if he turned out to be an enemy; his heart was still hurt by those words — Aiden didn't know how she was feeling inside. Was she beginning to have some second thoughts about him? Would she listen to Kunata and send him out of the pack? Or would she let him stay but withdraw herself from him?Surprisingly, he didn't like the sound
It was quiet around there but the sky was black with no moon or stars. But neither of them was bothered because they could see clearly even at night due to their wolves' sight. An owl was hooting from a distance and for some reason, that made the environment more serene and comfortable.Alpha Velvet was quiet even after Aiden's question and Aiden wondered if he should repeat his question. He had not hesitated to tell her about himself but here she was, hesitating to tell him hers. Didn't she just say she trusted him?"Davina told me the room I stay in belongs to your brother. Where is he?" He decided to take another route in asking his question."You don't give up, do you?" The alpha sighed heavily, her shoulders drooped."I guess not." Aiden softly replied and she sighed again, raising her chin to look at the black sky."His name is Nicholas, right?" "How do you know that?" She looked shocked."I overheard the couple talking about it." He replied and she sighed again, returning her
She let out another big sigh. "Kappa was so thrilled to find a little pack and just because we were little, he felt we would be easy to dominate and control. He wants to make us a sub-pack. He feels I have no business being an alpha and Night Scars was too small to rule on its own. "At first, he had tried to entice me by showing me all that I would stand to gain if I accepted his offer. According to him, his pack was large enough to accommodate us and he would be responsible for our safety, that way we wouldn't need to fight off enemies all by ourselves. That made so much sense but I could not accept it. "This pack means more to me than just being a pack. It's a remnant of Crystal pack. I can't just team up with some other pack who had no idea what we've been through. Besides, I discovered that Kappa is somehow involved with Alpha Lundamous' son. I can't have anything to do with a pack who teams up with the one pack that killed my parents." Aiden remained quiet, not wanting to in
*Night Scar Pack*Davina was lying on her bed when she returned, staring at the ceiling with her hands and legs spread widely apart. Alpha Velvet shook her head at her, a chuckle escaping her lips as she walked further into the room. "How long have you been waiting?" She asked as she took off her cloak. She was not surprised to see Davina in her room. In fact, she had been expecting to see her and as usual, Davina didn't disappoint her. It had now become Davina's attitude of waiting for her in her room each time she threw her tantrums and asked to be alone. Davina always waited behind in her room because according to her, she knew the alpha would need some consolation when she was calm enough. However, alpha Velvet didn't think she needed any consolation this time, not when Aiden had been there to console her. The night's event still made her heart flutter and in no time, she was smiling to herself as vivid images of her time with Aiden flooded into her head. Alpha Velvet was sur
*Blood Moon pack*Jamal and Andrew exchanged another confused look again, just as they had been doing since they arrived at the calm lake which had suddenly become their favourite spot in the pack. The lake was always serene and was quite peaceful in the morning because most werewolves were busy going about their daily activity. The three friends should be too, but all gammas and warriors had taken the day off to rest after training rigorously even when there was no war to fight. Alpha Lundamous had made it a custom for warriors to train rigorously almost every day because according to him, they ought to be battle ready at all times to not be taken unawares by the enemy. It was a good decision, but sometimes, it was too tiring and overwhelming and that was why the break was needed from time to time. Jamal and Andrew had felt they would be spending the day with their families but Calix had mind-linked them early that morning and had asked to meet by the lake to discuss an importan
*Blood Moon Pack*"What am I doing, Andrew?""You know what. This guy wanted to kill Aiden. This guy wanted to kill Aiden for no just cause!""Aiden! Aiden! Aiden! It's always about Aiden!" Calix growled too. He was now getting very angry and could not keep his cool anymore. "It's always about Aiden! All the time! Tell me, am I existing just for Aiden? Don't get me wrong. I love Aiden like a brother but that does not mean I will throw away an opportunity to have a better position just because of Aiden.""What are you saying?" Jamal glared at him. "You and I know how bad Jared is. We know of his atrocities. Don't tell me you are this swayed by the offer to lose your head?""I can't believe he is so quick to forget everything Jared had done to us." Andrew shook his head."To Aiden!" Calix snapped. "Point of correction! To Aiden and not to us. Everything is all about Aiden and the battle with Jared is Aiden's battle. I wonder why I need to be dragged into it. I have done a lot for Aiden.
*Night Scars Pack* Alpha Velvet and the couple were having their breakfast in the only refectory room in the entire pack. The state of her pack had always bothered her but now that she had decided to surrender to Alpha Kappa, she was sure something would be done about it. The Moon Stone pack were wealthy people so if they were going to be a sub pack under them, then it was Alpha Kappa's responsibility to take care of them. But then again, Alpha Velvet thought, what if the Moon Stone pack left them to their fate, probably issuing back-breaking taxes on them and forcing them to work more than usual? What if she was only selling her pack to hardship? So many thoughts were flooding into her head and Alpha Velvet didn't know what else to think. She was fed up with this predicament and she didn't know what to do to lead her pack out of this mess. The pack members were counting on her to make the best decision and she was sure they would surely follow her without opposition if she a
