ONE LAST BATTLE I felt the ground beneath my paws and it felt incredible. This is the first time I have shifted since before I got pregnant. It was more painful than I was used to but I did it with ease. I didn't want the warriors to have any doubts in me. If they thought that I had trouble shifting then they might have thought that I wasn't up for the battle. I needed to be a leader. No matter how much anything hurt. And it really did hurt. 'Are you alright?' Asher asked. 'Yeah. A little breathless. But the pain will stop in a moment.' I replied. Asher waited a few moments before I looked up at the sky and I recognised the surroundings, the feeling of the earth, the feeling of the moon approaching the sky and I let out a howl indicating that the time was now. Asher and I started running straight off into the woods and all warriors followed us. Spreading out in formation like they were taught. We had back up warriors but they were a little far away if we needed them immediate
'Look for the smoke. It appears first. It takes them a while to materialize. I just realized that when I saw her going for Beau. Make sure you look for the smoke and attack before they are actually there.' I instructed everyone. It was the first good lead we actually had on killing these bitch's. I mean, witch's. 'Ivy. What's going on out there?' Freya asked from the shelter. 'Sit tight. We'll let you know when it's over. These things are crafty.' I tell her and I cut the link. I needed to concentrate. I couldn't be worried about them in the shelter. They were fine where they were. Asher was trying to protect all of the warriors but they were trained for this. For battle. I needed to make sure that he wasn't overdoing it. 'Asher. Come here.' I say. And he came to the middle of the warriors to where I was. 'What is it? Are you okay?' He asked. 'You need to sit for a minute. Their all on look out and they know what their looking for. You need to stop trying to protect everyo
We got the witch's bodies off of our territory and buried them in an open field that wasn't too far away. And Asher and I cleaned up a little bit before we opened the shelter and let everyone out. There were some very tearful eyes as those women knew that their mates were killed. And I did my best to comfort them. But there was nothing that could help the loss of a mate. And Zara and Freya came out with the kids. Asher and I took the kids so they could go find Beau and Cole and Fiona was the last one to come out. She was looking really sullen and upset. I knew that there was more going on with her then she was letting on. People had blamed her in the shelter for their mates deaths. Saying that she bought the witch's here. I knew that it wasn't the case. I knew that everything they said was out of grief. They needed someone to blame and she was the easiest target. I comfort Fiona in the house until Axel arrives but I don't tell him what happened. Fiona didn't even tell me what happ
I was too dumbfounded by that whole meeting that I didn't say a word the whole way back to the packhouse. I was confused and grateful and a little emotional about it. But when we got home all I could feel was relief. I got out of the car and I stood there staring at the packhouse like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I felt completely free. There was no one coming after us, at least no one that we knew about, and I felt like this was really the beginning of a new chapter for us. That we could actually start our lives finally. As a family. Together. And that no one was standing in the way of that happening. Asher was about to walk up the stairs when he saw me and he walked back over to me and he cupped my face in his hands. " Are you alright?" He asked. " I actually feel, great. I feel free." I say. And he smiled at me before he leaned down and kissed me. " We are free. Now, how about we go in and see about trying for another baby?" He asked smirking at me
IVY'S DREAM I remember falling asleep really quickly being completely exhausted after chasing after three kids all day but when I opened my eyes, I was in this place that I couldn't explain. It was completely white. There was nothing there and I was wearing a white flowing dress down to my ankles that I had never seen before in my life. I was lying on the ground but I got up as fast as I could with my growing baby bump in front of me. I felt like I was dreaming, but it also felt like I was wide awake. " Hello." I sang out. But I just heard my own voice echoing. So I started walking, I had no destination in sight because everything looked the same. I was walking aimlessly trying to figure out what this place was. " Am I dead?" I asked myself. Wondering if maybe there was an accident or something that I couldn't remember. " No my child. You're not dead." A voice says from behind me. So I spun around quickly to see a women standing there in a similar white flowing dress. There wa
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA " Regan. Where are you you little bitch?" My drunken mother called from downstairs of our crappy little dilapidated house. " What mom?" I asked opening my bedroom door. " What the hell are you doing in there?" She asked. " My homework. What else?" I asked. " I want something to eat." She demanded. " Then make something to eat. I'm not your fucking slave." I yelled slamming the door and locking it again. " What would your mother do if she knew that I was in here with you?" My boyfriend Noah asked as I sat back on the bed next to him. " Who the hell cares? She won't remember it tomorrow anyway." I say leaning forward and kissing him. I put my hands on his chest and pushing him onto his back and laying on top of him while I was kissing him. My hand started trailing up the inside of his shirt and he grabbed my top and pulled it over my head and he leaned up and started kissing me again while I was unbluckling his jeans. Then someone started bashing on
I watched in silent amazement watching the pitch black wolf and the white wolf run off into the woods together, towards the sounds of people running towards us. I couldn't sit back. I needed to get closer. I followed behind them. I tried to run, but it was really hard. It was hard trying to find my footing. They made it look so graceful but I guess, they'd had a lot more practice than I had. I finally caught up to them and there were wolves fighting humans. But they weren't humans. They were strong. Their faces were distorted. They were vampires. The wolves weren't afraid. They ran into it head on and attacked anyone that got in their way. I suddenly started getting this pain in my stomach again and I yelped. I didn't know where that came from, but I did. I yelped in pain and I felt my bones breaking again and suddenly I was back in human form. But I was standing there completely naked and exposed. I hid my body around a tree but I kept looking out to see the fight that was un
I woke up the next morning in the same suite of that hotel but in the spare bedroom and I looked around confused at first. But then I started remembering the events of last night. Everything that I was told. About my family, about my old pack, what my mother had done. And that I was with Ivy and Asher Silverton. I think that last part is the one that I couldn't get my head around. I got out of bed slowly and walked towards the door and into the suite and I saw Asher sitting at the table reading something on his phone. " Hi. I hope you're hungry. I ordered extra room service. I wasn't sure what you liked to eat." Asher says putting his phone down. " I like anything really." I say and I go to sit down at the table. I look around and realize that we're in this suite completely alone. " Ivy's gone on her morning jog. She does it every morning." Asher says without me needing to ask. I guess I looked a little uncomfortable sitting here alone with him. " What time is it?" I asked.
