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.
Vale didn’t push me after my outburst, didn’t try to seek me out. In fact, he avoided me like the plague. Luna Naomi told me he had called Simon and Bryan but neither of them would give him details. They only said they would speak to use when we got there. This irritated him enough to break his phone as he threw it against the stone. Alpha Evan though was accommodating when he realized the issue. He understood my pain at the loss of my Alpha. That was enough and I didn’t need to explain further.I slammed the trunk shut with our luggage. Turning to the Alpha and Luna who were standing next to the car, I flashed them a smile. “Thank you for allowing us use of the car.”“Please. We brought our own and the pack has quite a few. It’s the least we could do after all this.” Alpha Evan reached out and shook my hand. “Thank you for everything you have done, Beta Hector. We owe you greatly, if you ever need anything, especially with your Alpha, we would be happy to help.”Nodding, I swallowed
All of us sat or stood in the living room. Jax, Simon and Morgan were leaning against the wall with the fireplace, the couch was taken up by Ezekiel, Bryan, and Lucy. I sat on the single chair across from them, closest to the fireplace while Vale sat in the other. AJ was sitting on the arm of the couch. Everyone was shifting uncomfortably, trying to get comfortable in a conversation we knew was impossible. “Really, Pipsqueak should be here but she’s been unreachable for a past few weeks.” Morgan was the first to say something. “It’s fine. I just…I need some of it. Whatever happened.” My knuckles were white as I threaded my fingers together, just trying to hold myself together. Trying to let my emotions consume me. It was Simon who spoke up first. “Alpha…sorry…Auri had been in contact exclusively with Pipsqueak. They were working nonstop. Auri wouldn’t sleep. She wouldn’t eat until she was working on a new lead with her.” AJ nodded. “We took turns making sure she rested or ate. Othe
