Hannah “What do you mean Sebastian is harming my wolf?” I snapped, refusing to believe his cruel words. I hated that I couldn’t shift and break out of this room; I needed to somehow get out of here and return home to Sebastian. I needed to know what Henry was talking about, but I didn’t want to hear it from Henry. I needed to hear it from Sebastian. “He’s using you to help his wolf madness,” Henry said, sitting down beside me. “Your scent for some reason helps calm him. That’s the only reason he’s keeping you around. If it wasn’t for your scent, he would have killed you by now.” “No,” I breathed, shaking my head at him. “Maybe at the beginning that’s what it was. But it’s different now. He’s different…” “No, he’s not, Hannah,” Henry growled, startling me. He has never rose his voice like this before and I’m not sure how to react to this new attitude change. Henry sighed and his gaze fell to the ground. “He’s dangerous. You must have known from the b
Sebastian’s POV “I want every gamma warrior there is to search this kingdom!” Sebastian roared to his warriors. “I will not rest until Hannah is safe at the palace.” “Yes, sir!” His warriors said in agreement before they departed from the palace. “Alpha!” He turned to see Arnold running through the foyer with Raya trailing behind him; they both looked worried. “What’s going on?” “Hannah is missing,” Sebastian told them. “What?” Raya gasped, covering her mouth with her hands. “She’s not anywhere?” “She has me blocked on her mindlink. I can’t seem to reach her,” Sebastian said, trying not to show them his panic. Eric was itching to escape and roam the kingdom himself to search for their chosen mate. He hated that they couldn’t sense or figure out where she had gone off to. “Maybe you should try to link her, Raya,” Sebastian suggested, eyeing Raya carefully. She looked frightened for a moment, but then that turned into determi
Sebastian “Fated mate?!” Eric roared as they returned to their minds. Sebastian shoved the scepter into his desk drawer, and he could feel his heart pounding against his ribcage. He knew where Hannah was located, and he wanted to go here and get her. But he saw that she was already heading home. It didn’t sound like she believed much of what he said, which was good. But still. Fated mate. Could Henry really be her mate? “Impossible,” Eric growled from within him. “We marked her. She’s, our mate. Whatever mate pull there was between them is long gone. There’s no way in hell it’s possible.” He knew his wolf was right. “Beta Arnold,” he said in a mindlink. “Bring the men back to the palace. Hannah is on her way.” “Okay, returning now.” He ended the mindlink and made his way into the foyer where Raya was clutching at her phone and typing something energetically. “I got her!” She said with a relieved smile.
Hannah’s POV I felt a sense of emptiness when I woke up the next morning and realized Sebastian was gone. His side of the bed looked so big and empty. It filled me with an inner dread. There was so much I wanted to talk to him about, but I could hardly utter a single word yesterday. I couldn’t believe everything I had found out; or everything that was told to me. It wasn’t making sense, but there was a part of me that believed Henry could possibly be my fated mate. He remembered a part of my childhood that I had never told anyone. Not even Sebastian knew of my heroic efforts as a little girl when I saved that boy. Nora was sensing that Henry was, in fact, my mate, but she was wary of the fact that she can sense it in the first place. She shouldn’t be able to sense anything because Sebastian had already marked me. But then something else that Henry mentioned surfaced in my mind and I grew ill thinking about it. Sebastian was just using me and didn’t really lov
Sebastian’s POV What the fuck did she think she was doing?! Sebastian had just enough of Emily and her bullshit. Now she was standing in front of the media and spreading even more lies. Both Sebastian and Emily knew they weren’t mates. Maybe at one point, when they were young, Sebastian would have chosen her as a mate. But they never reached that point before she left him. Once she disappeared, he decided she wasn’t worth it. Even now that she’s returned, he still doesn’t want her as a mate. After everything she’s done since she returned, lying about her illness, lying to Hannah about her pregnancy, being rude and nasty to Hannah for no reason, and framing Hannah for stealing the scepter. Sebastian had no interest in Emily, and he wanted her gone. He thought he made that perfectly clear to her the last time he went to visit her at the hospital. He had told her to stay away from both him and Hannah and that he was done with her. But she returned and was makin
Hannah’s POV I was stunned by what Valerie had just said; she took a step back to join the other servants so they could speak amongst themselves. I stood frozen and stared at them with such disbelief crossing my face. But then there was a part of me that almost believed what she said to be true. It was Amy who was supposed to marry Sebastian in the first place. I was just his replacement bride because she didn’t want to marry him. Maybe if he knew the truth, he wouldn’t love me anymore. There was so much crap happening with all these rumors; it was a waste of Sebastian’s time. I felt a heavy knot in the pit of my stomach. I was causing him so much stress and unhappiness. Maybe leaving was the best thing I could do for him. Maybe Henry was telling me the truth and he really was my fated mate. I could find a way to be happy with Henry and leave Sebastian alone. “You’re speaking nonsense,” Nora scolded. “Sebastian loves us regardless of what happens. You have to
Sebastian A pain shot through his body as he reached his car. Everything started screaming at him and he had to grab onto his door to keep from tumbling over. His head was pounding to a point where he thought he was going to vomit. He managed to pull himself into his car and slam the door shut. He began deep breathing, trying to steady his racing heart and soothe some of the pain in his head. He closed his eyes, feeling even more nauseous than before. Beads of sweat started forming on his forehead, dripping down his features and the nape of his neck. His body trembled uncontrollably as he tried to get a handle on the pain. For a moment, it was almost like the scars under his mask were burning and tearing away at his face. It took everything he had not to rip his mask off for just an ounce of relief. “What the fuck is happening?!” Sebastian growled to his wolf. “….” Eric didn’t answer. “Eric, what the hell?!” Sebastian growled again
Sebastian When Arnold told Sebastian that Hannah was pregnant, he knew he had to rush to the hospital. He couldn’t believe that Hannah would keep something that important from him. It made him wonder whom she had told and why she would keep it from her husband. It always made him think maybe it was because the baby wasn’t his. It wasn’t something he enjoyed thinking about, but he couldn’t help it. The thought surfaced in his mind, and he couldn’t shake it.He stared down at Hannah, who remained in the hospital bed. She was pale, and for someone pregnant, she seemed thin. She looked much sicker than he remembered from earlier. Her body was trembling, and tears were drowning her eyes.“I wanted to tell you…” she whispered; tears escaped her eyes and washed over her features.“When?” Sebastian couldn’t help but scold; he was being fueled by fury. The only thing keeping his wolf calm was Hannah’s scent. Even then, he still had to grip the bed handles to keep himself under control. “Were
