The talk travelled faster than air. Gossip spread like wildfire. As if it was a viral story on the internet, all the misdeeds that Lorenzo had ever committed started spreading out along with the sins that he had committed after coming to our pack. As his crimes got revealed, and people found out that he had tried to murder multiple omegas, the gossip about him increased even more. The headline of his crime was- Lorenzo is being punished by a mysterious force created by Moon goddess for taking advantage of his power.Getting beaten up without trace, the oxygen mask falling off, and especially the attack of crows- it all signified that Lorenzo had committed grave sins for which moon goddess had cursed him. He would never be a good alpha. He is going to die at our pack but not before he had suffered a lot.The more people talked, the more news spread and badmouthing about alpha Griffin, Leila and Lorenzo began. Alpha Griffin, on the other hand, was furious out of his mind. Now as I pi
“Let’s take a seat.” Adrian grabbed my hand, leading us toward the dinner table but I snatched my hand out of his grasp,“What are you doing?!” I hissed, “You should go. There are so many people there. Even two alphas!”He rolled his eyes, “It is just dinner! And now you are my Consort. You have every right to be at that table.”“Right! I keep forgetting about that. But I don’t want to creat a farce.” I kept my voice low to make sure nobody else hears us, “the dangerous energy between your dad and alpha Griffin, it is already so heavy in the air. Let’s not create more troubles, Adrian.”All eyes turned to us when we took
‘What just happened?’‘Where did she go? Did she just disappear?’‘Look under the table.’‘Oh my god… she knows dark magic!’A commotion had lit up the entire hall. Everyone was so shocked that no one was even pretending to keep their voices down. Leila had just disappeared in front of everyone without a trace within less than a second. Everyone had started murmuring about Leila using magic to run away. It was the only plausible explanation.Alpha Griffin faked a worried face. He was looking around frantically to find Leila but she was nowhere to be seen.
I closed my eyes, ready to shift. There was no other way to be saved.My body felt hot, my claws coming out. I bent down on my knees to shift to my wolf.BANG!The top of the basement burst open. The fire burst through the small hole at once and then calmed down. A figure jumped through the door. I had never felt such a deep relief ever before in my entire life.Adrian’s eyes fell on me, noticing my claws. He immediately came over, grabbing Lucinda first while saying to me, “I am bringing you out.”I gulped hard, the dark smoke making it impossible for me to breathe properly or see anything. There was a shout from the above, someone threw
I nervously glanced at Adrian past the bushes and trees that I had tried to hide behind. Lucinda stood in front of me. Broken down, but looking much better now that she had been given some treatment. Everyone had started to return to their homes while a search group was sent to hunt down Leila. Alpha Griffin was in no state to even walk. An ambulance had been brought in to carry him to the pack hospital.“What’s up?” Lucinda asked impatiently, tiredness covering her face, “I wanna go back and take a fucking nap. What do you want?”My attention returned to her. I could feel Adrian’s eyes pinned on us. Folding my arms over my chest, I straightened my back to prepare myself, and then stated, “You heard what Leila said about my wolf, didn’t you?”Lucinda was silent for a mere second, but then smirked, and leaned back against the bark of a tree. Though it was more because she was perhaps getting tired of standing rather than attitude.“I heard.”My worst fear. Though it was not like I was
I woke up from gentle knocking on the door. It first the constant ‘Thak, thak, thak’ irritated the hell out of my sleep deprived brain. But then I opened my eyes, realised I was in the pack house, laying in Adrian’s spare room entirely naked with a heavy arm around me, and shot up immediately.Shit!THAK. THAK. THAK.The knocking grew louder. Fucking hell.I did not have the time to dress up so I just threw on the bathrobe laying on the floor, and got out of the bed. I was about to unlock the door when I remembered something, flipped around and ran back to the bed.Adrian was spread out in the bed, fast asleep. I grabbed the sh
I pushed him out of the room as my face turned red in shame. Locking the door from inside, I took several deep breaths to calm myself and then changed the clothes. The dress was light and cloudy on my skin. I had never had something like this. Something NEW even. Exhaling with deep comfort, I stepped out of the changing room to go meet Adrian.Adrian’s appreciative stare slid over me, making me blush even harder. When I was next to him, he grabbed my hand and took me along to shop around for more things. The time passed pretty quickly as we brought shoes and jewelerry and even the smallest things like shampoo and lotions. By the time it ended, I was literally exhausted out of my mind. We then ate food in a nice restaurant and had an ice cream. We then headed back to the car with some bags in our hands, ready to return.After coming back home Adrian leaded over to whisper, “I can’t wait to take this dress off you.”“We are in public!” I hissed, hiding my face in his arm. I had made a
