Vale stared at the floor. I could pick up his heartbeat as it raced but nothing showed it in his features. His face was blank as he bore holes into the floor. Looking back at the phone, I saw Simon also watching intently. Every once in a while though, he would look up over the phone. “So, what’s next?” I finally broke the silence and asked. Simon’s head locked back onto me. “Well, right now, we are tracking down the three SUV’s that drove off in the beginning of the video. They basically played the cup game and mixed together, then went separate ways. Pipsqueak is tracking their movements through as many cameras as she can get ahold of. We took one of the SUV’s and she is still tracking the other two.” I nodded. “Tracing where they went narrows our search considerably.” He nodded but I saw his lips press together. “What?” Simon glanced at Vale who still hadn’t moved. “All that footage is from a week ago. We are days behind them at this point. I don’t want to say that we might not e
He took the phone from my hand but I didn’t let it go. My eyes locked with his as he looked up at me, confused as to why I wouldn’t let go. “I know you’re upset. This might make it worse. You need to understand that you aren’t the only one in pain. You aren’t the only one who loves him. He may be your mate, but he is also a friend, a son, a member of the pack and family. It’s not just you in pain.” He growled and pulled the phone out my my hands. I watched as Vale phoned Auri. It was understandable how upset and angry he was but this was bigger than him as well. The fact that he still couldn’t feel anything through the bond seemed to be a good sign. Auri proved that she could be far away but still made Logan feel her pain of her dying. The death of a mate could be felt anywhere. No matter how far away you were. We continued to find that out the hard way. Bryan was in Europe when Denise died. He said he felt every bit of it. Not the pain beforehand but her death for sure. Bryan pic
Of all the idiotic plans, this one had be up there on the dumbest fucking plans to date. Especially when lives were at stake. I pinched the bridge of my nose; like mother like son. The two of them were definitely going to get me killed one day. I couldn’t believe I lasted this long anyways. Every day was a gift and here was that gift being ripped out from under me.He made it sound so easy. Go down an empty corridor, find a hidden door, head down, grab six kids, and walk on out of the territory to a waiting group of vampires and witches. Huffing, I threw my hands up.'He’s very much our loves son.' Rydere chuckled.'Sure. But shall we list off the things that could go wrong?' I paced in the small room.Rydere rolled his eyes and laid down. 'I’m sure you will tell me anyways.''Not only am I going to have to go in unseen, somehow find this magical door that Vale described but I’ve never seen. Go down and somehow convince six children that I’m a good werewolf when they have been deathly
'Check the perimeter.' Rydere barked at me. I looked around outside but I didn’t see anyone. Taking a deep breath, I ran, making sure all four were following. They were and we stopped at the end of the castle. Now was the biggest stretch of land between here and the forest. My heart pounded in my throat. We were so close but there were five warriors were lollygagging out front. Crouching down, I motioned around the corner, and I held up five fingers. Dylan shook his head and whispered. “We won’t make it.” I nodded and closed my eyes. 'If only they were small enough to fit in a backpack.' Rydere mused as he paced. My eyes widened. 'That’s it!' I set the two down onto the grass and had the others huddle together. Going back into the kitchen, I searched around the cupboards until I found a large table cloth. It was a dark green and I smiled. Heading back out, all of them froze until they say it was me. “I’m going to shift, kids. Get on my back. Dylan, throw the cloth over and tuck
Hello my wonderful lovely readers!First, I want to say thank you for supporting me with my stories and I hope you are enjoying so far! I wanted to apologize. I’ve wanted to keep up and have my chapter or two a day but recently, between health issues and family, that has not been possible. I want to reassure all of you, my love and continuation for this story is still there! It’s not abandoned or finished. By any means. I’ve just not been healthy enough to focus my creativeness.Things are changing coming up here. I get to have a bit more time to myself. Get to focus a little more, as well as *hopefully* not as frequent drs visits. So! I’m hoping we jump back into this next week, not 100% on the exact date yet next week. I’m shooting for early next week, at least having two chapters! I’m also going through and doing some rough edits on the earlier chapters. Just misspelled or incorrect words. I’m not a person who can focus on multiple stories at once, so this story is still my sole foc
The Alpha stood up, eyes wide. “Leaving? Like going back to fight later?” The warrior shook his head. “No Alpha, they packed up their camps and tents and left. Went back to their homes. It’s over.” Vale looked at me and smiled, I nodded back to him. “Well now, that’s great news!” Mark, the Alpha, and Beta Joshua smiled exuberantly and clapped each other on the back. As though they did something that warranted this celebration. “Let us feast! Tell everyone but the scouts to head back to the castle. We shall have a full spread prepared! I would like the scouting groups to eat as much from the food prepared for today as they would like but keep an eye out to make sure there is no trick.” “Yes Alpha!” The three disappeared out of the tent. I sighed and stretched. “Well, that was anti-climatic. Should we head back?” “Yes, yes I think we should. I think after a couple days of ensuring that there is no trick, we can be out if you’d hair, Alpha Niles.” Mark smiled and I almost snapped m
A week after the death of Alpha Niles, Vale and I welcomed Alpha Evan and his Luna Naomi, with their pup. We had had already taken care of the vampires and it turns out, there were only a few that were holed up in a building just outside of the pack territory. Vale already had passed on the title of Alpha, introducing the whole pack to their new Alpha. I had never seen so much elation and suddenly the pack turned back into a place they could call home.We were still here though, trying to sort out the ridiculous amount of issues that the previous Alpha and Beta left behind. There wasn’t much I could help with so I started up on a new routine for the warriors so they would be better off then the ridiculous routine they had previously. I also took over the scheduling for the patrols in the area.From what I understood, the two High Council members were still at the witches coven, trying to sort out some other issue there. I had stopped by a couple times to see the kids and they seemed v
The next few days were horrid. I refused to give Vale more than three words, two of which included ‘my king’ at the end of everything. More than once had he yelled at me but I took it with a blank, bored expression. This pups anger couldn’t scare me. Goddess, no. I wondered sometimes if he had ever seen Auri truly angry before. She was a force that would leave me breathless with fear.If he required a deeper conversation, I was short, straight to the point and sometimes sarcastic. The change seemed to shift the whole castle in the awkwardness between us.I didn’t give a single shit though. Neither did Rydere. We both sometimes needed time and he would take over, letting me retreat. He treated Vale even more sarcastically that I did. Which, of course, ticked Vale off even more. But I was angry and I felt like I had to bottle all my pain. Bottle everything and even when I tried to reach out to Bryan or Simon, there was nothing. Morgan had called me, giving me a status update on Ezekiel.
