LUCY.I was still pissed off that my time with Adan was cut off just because of this nonsense. I had no idea how long I could tolerate this. Father obviously had no idea what he was doing.He was trying to scare me off, but every time I told him I would not take the throne, he would back down and try to calm me down.There were things hidden from me that I knew I had to be careful of because the last thing I wanted was to be sacrificed by my own father.I would never bow down to death — not after I found Adan. Not after I knew what I wanted with my life. I had always thought my mate could save me from the darkness, but the truth was, nothing could save me but myself. But Adan, my Adan, was my biggest driving force to keep this fight going. If he didn’t exist, I would probably let them control me. But I would not back down now. I would be the Luna of the Mystic Pack, not the ruler of Kalmerus.My annoyance was also heightened by the fact that I was not able to please my mate back. Of
ADAN STONE. After Lucija and Lucius left, I stayed awake. Sleep never came, and as much as I wanted to just lay down on the bed and think of my next move, the room was painful to see. Lucija was just here for a short time, but every corner of the room reminded me of her. So I went down and stayed in the kitchen. My mind was blank. I felt more lost than ever. I just wanted her back with me at whatever cost. I needed to summon Hades. But what was my guarantee that he would come? I had no idea how long I had been sitting at the dining table when a sudden pain hit my chest. It was just for five to six seconds, and I disregarded it until I noticed red marks had appeared on my wrists. They looked like ancient writings, but I knew what they meant. My mate was being intimate with someone. No, Lucy would never do that. Even if she knew I couldn’t remember her, she loved me, and she would never betray me. I tried to calm myself down, but whatever thoughts I kept thinking weren’t helping.
ALTHEA. My body was still shaking as I moved to the backseat of the car. There was a car behind us with four people inside, and Dalton mentioned they were his men as well. Alpha Stone wanted to make sure we reached him in one piece, so he added extra security. But I didn’t see or feel any threat. The problem was within me. Blade told me in passing about heat, but I disregarded it. I wasn’t a shifter after all, so it shouldn’t be affecting me. But the moment the full moon peaked, the burn inside me began — slow and tolerable at first, but it kept getting worse. I was trying to quietly chant a spell to take out the stomach pains, but it wasn’t working, and now I was having a cold sweat. I had no idea what to do anymore. My stomach was burning, but my core was worse — it was on fire! The thing was, only one person kept flashing through my mind. Blade. But he was nowhere to be found. I was relieved Dalton didn’t seem to notice anything. He just kept driving, but if this thing kept
BLADE.I left Althea at the Fortuna coven. I knew she would be safer there, but that didn’t mean I left her on her own. I was just nearby, checking their area from time to time to see if she would come out, just to make sure she was okay. I knew the demon lord must still be looking for her, so I had to keep my guard up all the time. Stalking and prying were never an issue. That has been part of my lifestyle for half a decade now.So I watched her like a fucking lovesick psycho, and because she was not a shifter, my scent was never that strong for her. She never saw me, and I intended to have it that way until we both could figure out what we wanted with our lives.Tonight was a full moon, so I decided to come closer to where she was living. I went around the open market, which was nearby the house where she was staying. I wanted to be around when the full moon hit so I could reassure myself that there were no wolves in this area, particularly the unmated ones.My mate was so sure she
BLADE. "Can I taste you?" I asked, letting my breath fan against her face. "I hope you mean my pussy, not my lips." She answered without opening her eyes. A smug grin curled on my lips before I captured her lips, and she whimpered in defiance, but I didn’t let her go. My fingers were still stroking in and out of her as I let my mouth devour her sweet and soft lips. She moved her body and was about to turn around and straddle me when I let go of her and hoisted her up in the air and guided her to sit on the ground. In seconds, I was able to rip her underwear and yank her legs up as I kneeled in front of her. I positioned her arms to coil around the back of her knees and pressed her legs closer to her chest before I leaned forward and swiped my tongue on her leaking folds up to her clit. Euphoria. I couldn’t explain how I was feeling, but Althea — she tasted so fucking good that if I died after this, I would die satisfied. I sucked and nibbled on her clit for a while before returni
PATREA.I watched in awe as a young female stepped out of a car, and I knew right away that she was my granddaughter. She was shorter than I expected given that both Adora and I were on the taller side. She must have gotten it from her father.I listened as she conversed with Alpha Stone in full confidence, but it didn’t slip my gaze that her eyes were sad. I wished she’d let me into her life because, after everything I'd been through and was about to do, meeting her was the only thing that seemed normal in my out-of-the-ordinary life right now. The normality that I was craving."Are you Patrea?" Her voice broke as our eyes met.Everyone vanished around us as my heart warmed at the way she was looking at me."Althea? Yes, my name is Patrea... I’m sorry, I didn’t know I had a granddaughter. If I knew, I would have done more so I could get out of there earlier…"I wanted to say so many things, and I kept blabbing, but she didn’t let me finish as she moved past Alpha Stone and went direc
ADAN STONE. After the commotion of Blade and Althea’s arrival, everyone calmed down as I and Lucius laid out the plan we had agreed upon. Everyone, including Blade, would have a role to play, and the only one that was not present was my Beta, Collin. But he had been informed as soon as we arrived back in the territory. Only Kingston and I went back. Patrea and Althea remained in the Silver Crest territory, and Blade was left with no choice but to meet his brother and make his presence known. Blade also brought the witches to the packhouse for added protection and gave them access to an isolated clearing so Althea could practice what she needed to do. I, on the other hand, had to be cautious because Lucien was still checking the pack house from time to time and, according to him, was wondering when I would be returning home. So the moment I came back, I had to continue pretending I still had no memory of my mate, including in front of my parents. Collin, Kingston, and their mates
LUCY. I just came back from letting Angel out, and so far it has been amazing. Angel was stronger than I expected. She had killed five gullaps that were running around near the hot spring where we were staying, and she did it in an instant. These little creatures could emit poison from their bodies, but Angel had quick reflexes and was able to corner them and pounce them to death. Five was her highest number since we began staying at the hot spring three cycles ago. She was just as fierce as my demon side, and I was happy that despite being trapped in this realm, she was growing stronger and braver. My only hope was that the cleansing would take place in a neutral cove with no enchantments that would prevent my wolf from surfacing. I wanted to have a connection with her on that day. Aside from that, Lucius would find time to fight with me while I was in my wolf form. Angel and Lucius had built such a connection between them that it made me more confident that Lucius, my brother, was
