IVY POV That day at school went by pretty smoothly. And in the afternoon I was paired up with Spencer again during training. But Beau and Cole were always paired up together. I ignored them yesterday but I paid a little bit of attention today and they were actually pretty comical to watch. They took every cheap shot in the book and acted like true siblings. Beau ended up getting the last blow when he punched Cole in the crotch and Cole fell to the ground holding himself like they were going to fall off or something. And he turned to me with a huge smile on his face. When we finished training we headed to the locker room and my room was right next to Spencer's and she says that it looks like Beau and I are back on track. " What are you talking about?" I asked. " Everyone thought that you and him were over before you began." She says. " We're not together. We're friends." I say confused. " Oh. The way you two act, you really look like you're dating. If not, you're at least
BEAU POV " What the hell are you talking about?" I asked staring Asher in the eye. " That's why I wanted you to keep her safe. Because I don't want her to know who I am yet. I don't give a shit that her mother is a doctor. I needed her here. Not her mother." Asher explained. " Why didn't you tell me that?" I asked. " Because I didn't want anyone to know. And then you started spending too much time together and it was too late. I didn't know how I was going to seperate you two." Asher says. " If I knew that she was your mate then I definitely wouldn't have kissed her. And I promise, that's as far as it went. How did you even find out that she was your mate?" I asked. " I went to her pack about two years ago. I saw her. She didn't see me, she never felt the pull. She didn't even look at me. But I saw her. That's why I waited to get her here." Asher says. " You need to let her see you. You need to meet her. She's almost 18. She will start to feel the pull towards you." I tell
IVY POV Beau said that we were going to get together to hang out or watever but I haven't heard from him. So I tried to call him several times and sent a few texts. When I didn't hear back I started doubting myself. I started thinking that maybe he was having doubts about last night. It really wouldn't surprise me. It's not like I actually believed that someone like him would be interested in me. No one has ever been interested in me like that before. Or interested in me, period. When I finished double guessing myself I decided to go to his house and confront him about it. If he wanted to forget about the kiss then that was fine. But I had a right to know why he was shutting me out. I didn't deserve that. And I knew that I didn't deserve that. I don't have much self esteem but I know that this kind of shit is not on. When I got to his house and rang the doorbell I didn't know what I was expecting, but when that man opened the door and he smelled of fresh rain I had to pull myself
On Monday morning I woke up at 5am and I got changed and I went for a one and half hour jog around the town and then back to the house again. I went upstairs to my room and I had a shower and I got dressed into grey short sleeved baggy top that looked three sizes too big on me, which it was meant to, that said 'East Hampton New York' on the front of it and white shorts and white slip on shoes. The sleeves of the shirt came to almost my elbow but that was the style. It was meant to look really baggy. I put everything into my bag and I headed down to the kitchen and I grabbed a cup of coffee before my mom walked into the room. " A lot of the patients at the hospital have been asking for you. Do you think you could stop by this afternoon?" She asked. " I didn't do anything special. I just did what any normal person would do. I made sure that they didn't die." I say. " I know. But they are still grateful for what you did. They wouldn't expect that from a teenage girl." She says. "
I didn't know what to make of Alpha Jackson being here. He couldn't be here. Not for us. He hates us. Why would he want us to go back to his pack. It made no sense to me. He ordered his entire pack to shun us, which I didn't even know. Alpha Asher said that. I thought they just hated us. But I guess it was more his doing then anything else. You're not allowed to go against the Alpha otherwise there are serious consequences. And then a thought suddenly hit me. " My mother." I said to Alpha Asher. " I'll head over to the hospital right now and get her to do the same thing. So that you two are now both apart of our pack." He says and I shake my head. Asher left the office and the principle was sitting behind his desk a little gobsmacked so I just headed to my class even though I was late. But the teacher knew that I had been called to the office and I sat down next to Spencer. " What happened?" She whispered. " It's a long story. Don't worry about it." I say back not wanting an
I stayed at the hospital until the night shift of nurses arrived and then I headed home and I needed to take another shower and I made a coffee and sat outside with a smoke. All I could think about was my mother. Jackson has her. I know that he does. But I have no idea where he would have taken her. He would make it really hard to find her. He wouldn't want me to figure it out. 'Ivy. You there?' Alpha Asher asked through the link. 'Yeah. Have you found her?' I asked. 'No. But it looks like she made a run for it from the car. We're following her scent and there are little bits of torn clothing on trees as we pass them.' He says. ' She's a fighter. She would have fought with everything.' I say. ' Do you think it's a coincidence that the Rogues attacked at the same time?' He asked. ' No. You don't know what he's capable of. And what lengths he'll go to to get what he wants.' I insist. ' Why would he want your mother?' He asked confused. ' I don't know. I have a feeling that
" Who's blood is that?" I stuttered out. " I'm not sure. I just needed you to be the first to know that we did find a body out of the boarders. There wasn't much left. Our pathologist has the body now and I told him that it was the priority. I'll know the second that he knows who it is." Alpha Asher says to me. I felt the room spinning and my knees gave out from under me and Alpha Asher caught me before I hit the floor and he carried me over to the couch. The same sparks igniting wherever he touched me. But I couldn't concentrate on them right now. " We don't know that it's her." Alpha Asher tried to assure me. But all I felt was numb. Like my world was over. And I couldn't even think let alone put a sentenced together. So Alpha Asher just stayed there with me on the couch not saying anything. I wouldn't call it a comfortable silence, but it didn't bother me and I wasn't too focused on trying to find what to say to him while he was there with me. " How long until you find out?"
" Oh my god." Alpha Asher muttered to himself. " Jeremiah Jameson." I say as tears roll down my face. " What?" He asked. " That man is Jeremiah Jameson. He's Jackson's Beta. The tattoo on his neck. It's dead giveaway." I say. " He's not very smart to let a mark like that be photographed." Alpha Asher says. " No one has ever accused Jeremiah of being smart. He's just muscle and does what Jackson says. That's why he's the Beta. Because he doesn't question any order." I explain. " Alright. I'm going to take this photo to our tech people and see if they can try and pull anything off of it. Maybe there's something in the background or a reflection or something that might tell us where she is." Alpha Asher says. " Okay." I say. " Are you going to the hospital?" He asked. " Yeah. I'll go now." I say. " I'll meet you there." He says taking the photo and leaving the house. I needed to gather myself first. I knew that Jackson had her this whole time but why? What was so impor
