Frankie POV “At this point,it looks like the rogue attack was not random last night. It appears to be provoked, however we don’t know who and why yet.” Alpha Kieran spoke to the group of current and future leaders of the pack. “Okay then, How do we protect our borders against an unknown enemy then?” Beta heir Tatum asked. “Sometimes, The best defense is a good offense. We train every able body to fight. If they are not able to shift yet, then we focus on combat in human form.” Alpha Kieran stated. “But don’t we pretty much do that now, Alpha?” Gamma Xavier stated. “We have up until now left it optional for females under 17 and males under 12. I think it would make us stronger if we started all pups at 8. Pups under 15 would see no battle at all and pups 15 to 17 would be our last line of defense, essentially there to defend those heading for the bunkers, on the chance that enemies could slip through the warriors and those with the ability to fight in wolf form.” Alpha Kieran replied.
Nikki POV Monday morning is here and I am totally dreading Frankie seeing me all sweaty. I dress in my favorite teal sports bra, a pair of tight black leggings, and some joggers and head over to the training grounds. I am already not feeling it, because all I did was lounge around this weekend. I see my friend group and walk over to them. “Hey guys.” I chirped, with false enthusiasm. Charity grumbles “Hey”, Silvie smiles and says “Hey back at ya”, and Jonas, as usual makes an inappropriate comment “Well if it isn’t the founder of the ity bity tity committee.” “Knock it off Jonas, someone could hear you!” I growled as I smacked the back of his head. “Oh come on Nikki, I was just playing. Besides, isn't the saying, ‘More than a mouthful is a waste?” Jonas teased. “Okay well if we’re all done talking about our friends body parts, we can get this training started.” Frankie said looking directly at us and I know my face is a deep shade of red. Beta Bill says, “Pair off and spar.” “Okay
Alpha Kieran POV As I hung up the phone with Alpha Hollis, I mind linked my Beta and Frankie to come to my office. Frankie was now sitting sprawl legged into one of the chairs in front of my desk, while Beta Bill sat tensed in the other. “I received a phone call from Alpha Hollis. He wants to set up an alliance, but was reluctant to tell me the terms by phone. He and his heir will be here at noon tomorrow. I can’t say that I am not concerned that he didn’t want to talk terms over the phone, but I want to us to be prepared for him to drop a metaphorical bomb on us.” I told them. Frankie sat up and said, “Why is he bringing Kendall? He’s almost as much of an asshole as his father is and as worthless as tits on a bullfrog.” “Well son, I don’t know, but I think it would be best that you were here as well. Bill, I want you and Xavier posted right outside the office, so whatever adjustments need to be made for the training schedule needs to be decided and posted immediately.” I answered
Alpha Kieran POV ‘Alpha, we have just cleared Alpha Hollis and his heir through border security.’ One of the warriors mind linked. ‘Thank you’ I linked back and looked at everyone in the room, “Alright team, it’s showtime. I will leave the link open for Bill and Xavier to be able to hear the meeting, despite the soundproofing. I had the desk chair brought in from Bill’s office, so you can sit behind the desk with me Frankie. It will be your space soon enough anyway. I don’t expect any difficulties, Hollis isn’t an enemy, but I don’t necessarily consider him an ally either.” I said as I gave last minute instruction. “Agree to disagree or peacefully coexist?” Frankie replied. “Exactly.” I said. As Alpha Hollis was shown into the room, pleasantries were exchanged and then seats offered to the guests. Kieran: “I hope the trip over was uneventful?” Hollis: “Yes, quite. 45 minutes through neutral territory, looks as though the humans are doing a festival of some sorts.” Kieran: “Ok en
Frankie POV As I walk to the training grounds. I am caught up in thoughts about the meeting with Alpha Hollis. Guy is a total dick and so is his son. Still not sure why he was even at the meeting today. Maybe daddy was teaching him how to be absurd. I mean who uses their daughter mating to propose an alliance? Probably more than I realize, he doesn’t really seem smart enough to come up with that himself. I would never do that to a child of mine. Besides, she’s probably ugly or a total bitch or something. I am really hoping that I find my fated mate. I don’t necessarily want a chosen mate, but if I did, I don’t want to mate with a stranger. But maybe I should actually open my eyes and be aware of who is available and would be a good luna. Nikki POV After swimming all morning in the river with my friends, I have to get ready for training. I think I will wear my red strappy sports bra and navy leggings with my joggers. And since my hair is not going to cooperate without me showering
Frankie POV Well, I can’t say I ever really thought of Nikki before now. She is cute though, dark honey blonde hair and chocolate brown eyes, firm little breasts about the size of a peach and a plump pear shaped ass. Girl is a feast and I am a starving man dying to take a bite. This is probably not the time to start getting wound up about a girl considering everything that is going on with the rogue attack, the threat of more, and then of course there is Alpha Hollis and his indecent proposal and the possibility that I could meet my mate at the the Blood Moon ball that we have decided to host in November. I know Nikki isn’t 18 yet, but I wonder when her birthday is. Will she be old enough to attend the ball? Is she Luna material? I know she can take a punch and I admit she can throw a good one too. She stepped up to defend her friend from being punched, so there is compassion. I really should get her out of my head, but in all honesty I just don't want to. What I really want is to
Nikki POV I felt a shadow come over me and when I opened my eyes I saw the object of my affection standing over me with an unreadable look on his face. So I sat up and said, “Hi.” He was just looking down at me and I couldn’t help but stare at his chest while he breathed in and out. His muscles are on display in all their glory. “Hello Little Bee.” Frankie said and gave a half smile. Then he continued, “You know it isn’t safe to be out here alone with the recent rogue issues.” Frankie himself looked a little dangerous at the moment and I couldn’t help but think ‘Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf’. I tilted my head to the side while looking up at him and said, “I wasn’t going to be here once the sun starts to set. But I can handle myself pretty well.” “You’re good at hand to hand Nikki, better than a lot, but you still haven’t shifted and if a rogue snuck up on you, you’d probably be killed,” he responded. “Why Alpha, I didn’t know you cared so much.” I said trying to sound sarcast
Nikki POV Frankie’s wolf, Kolt, moved fast even while carrying a passenger. I was in awe of his speed and if the situation wasn’t dire, I would take the time to marvel at the magnificent beast he was. As we approached the grounds surrounding the pack house I could see utter chaos ensuing. I leaned as close to Kolt’s ear as I could and told him to just slow down as we approached, that I would tuck and roll so that I could start helping those scrambling towards the bunkers. As he began to slow I saw Granny Delia struggling to get her 2 young grandchildren to the bunkers. So I did exactly what I said I was going to do. I somersaulted off of Kolt and continued the roll to land on my feet, wasting no time heading straight for Granny Delia. “Here Granny, hand me the little one.” I said. And I scooped the infant from her arms and turned and bent in a fluid motion to pick up the toddler she had by the hand. “Thank you.” Granny cried out in relief. “I will get these two to the bunkers, ca
