Gasper gulped in his spittle as the message hit him, just like a running train. He knew what it meant. Hrolf was ready to take up the challenge, damning how Ashina was going to feel. He loved this but still, he would have loved it if Hrolf had thought clearly about this because he seems to have done so irrationally, without thinking."You aren't deaf, are you?" Hrolf asked angrily. " No, I am not but I will love it if you can think clearly about this before sending any message," he said, gently. Hrolf exhaled sharply, rubbing his thumb on his head, trying to calm down. "That is what she wants, send out the messenger's dove," Hrolf said to Gasper. He wasn't going to have a rethink about this, Ashina had wanted this and he was going to grant her her wish. "Right away, Alpha," Erik responded with a bow to the ground. He walked away as swiftly as he could, he was feeling a little bit numb but he knew it would pass away with time, he had to make sure all the elders got it this night a
Cassie stared at Gasper like he was talking trash. He was with her because she was getting pissed off already by all of his little actions and everything that he was doing.She knew that he promised her that he was going to make her the Alpha of the pack but now, it was beginning to sound awkward to her as she wondered what power he had to make that possible. She wanted to know what power he possessed that was going to make that happen. "You are pissing me off, Gasper and if you are going to continue doing this, then we are not going to be allies because I cannot stand you talking down on me at all times, " Cassie said, shocking Gasper that she could say something like that. "You wouldn't dare," Gasper said angrily to her, his eyes stern and his hands itching to grip her throat in a way that would leave her gasping for breath. "I can, you should learn never to turn the tail of a snake," Cassie bragged to him, making him smirk. He couldn't believe something like this was happening.
Hrolf stood in front of his closet, running his fingers through his face. He had a sleepless night yesterday, he had kept tossing around on the bed hoping that sleep would come but it hadn't. No matter how hard he tried to, it didn't come through. Thoughts of what Ashina wanted kept coming back to him taunting him endlessly and he didn't know what else to do, for the first time in a while.Hrolf was speechless not knowing what to do anymore. "Hahaha" he chuckled out loud when he thought of what had happened, Ashina was the cause of all of this. Love had made him this way, he never thought that he would be in such a position. He was well-loved for every choice that he had made, the people of his pack praised him for his knowledge and they all loved him but Ashina had reduced him to someone who couldn't make a decision. He ran his hands through his hair exhaling sharply. He wondered how he was going to attend the meeting and inform the elders of the pack about what Ashina wanted.
Ashina smiled at Gael before turning her attention to look at Hrolf."Greetings Alpha Hrolf, greetings Gamma Erik," She curtiesed while averting her gaze to the ground. "Ashina, why are you doing this?" Hrolf muttered angrily, almost rushing forward to grip her wrist but Erik had a tight grip on his robe. Hrolf turned back to glare at Erik, wondering what he was trying to do exactly. "Don't, Alpha," Erik pleaded, with sincerity. He couldn't see why he should keep belittling himself because of a woman who didn't want him, he was beginning to get pissed off because of that. "Let me go," Hrolf ordered Erik angrily, but still he refused to budge. Flipping his robe away would cause a tear on the robe and it wouldn't be helpful since they had limited time to get to the meeting. "You are dismissed," Gamma ordered Ashina who was still standing with Gael who kept wondering what was going on. "Father, are you bullying mother?" He asked innocently. " Son, your father will come to visit yo
Hrolf smirked at what Cassie had just said, his veins bulged and he was trying to hold himself from going against the promise that he had made to himself already, she wasn't worth it."You act against the interest of the pack and not just that, you have a way of using people, isn't that shameless?" Hrolf asked.Cassie seemed lost for a moment while wondering what Hrolf meant by what he had just said, she was trying as hard as she could to understand it but she couldn't. Does that mean he had seen her talking with Gasper or her spy? She turned to look at Erik whose face was focused on her still, she knew that he must have been the one. "I do not understand what you mean by what you have just uttered," she said to Hrolf who scoffed at what he had just heard."Cassie, how can you limit yourself in such a way?" Hrolf questioned, he was trying to taste the waters and was hoping that she would say the truth but it seemed that wouldn't be happening. "I still do not understand what you mea
"Do not hurt him, you are behaving so irrationally that I wonder what it was that attracted Hrolf to you," Cassie spat out harshly. Ashina smirked softly, trying to keep calm. She was trying all that she could not answer Cassie but it seemed that she was hell-bent on making sure that she answered her. "Son, come" Ashina called out again, this time her tone was so enchanting that anyone would fall when they heard her say a word. Gael stretched forth his hand and Ashina carried him in the arm, with a wild smile on her face."You will get to know about the results later on, until then, I need some bonding time with Gael, excuse me," Ashina said to Cassie. She walked out happily, almost jumping up excitedly if not for Gael who was in her arms. Cassie glared at Ashina, she knew just what exactly to do that would make her lose and make Hrolf hate her, she smiled when a plan came to her mind. "Father" Gael called out to Hrolf happily. Hrolf, who was walking with Erik to the armory roo
Ashina was in deep thought while she walked toward her room, she wondered if she had made the right decision but something she knew was that no matter how hard she tried to change her decision, she wouldn't be able to do that. She exhaled sharply before pulling open the door to her room and walking in. She took a large stride toward the window, gazing into the large expanse of land before her. She could feel it, the steady beating of the drum which was ushering the combat in, she could feel the chill in her bones as she thought of how she was going to fight later on with Hrolf.She had seen the look on his face after he had carried Gael from her and she could never get over it. She hadn't seen him look at her in such a manner before and although she was supposed to, it made her heart ache. She felt a little bit down that she would have to be the one to put a sword on his neck, cutting its airflow but she didn't care, he didn't care when he killed her father, so why would she? Alth
Ashina stared at the maid with a smirk on her lips, someone must have sent her here to discourage her from participating in the combat.She knew that their intention was to make her withdraw so she would be known as a weakling but that wasn't going to happen. She refused to be seen as a joke and that wouldn't ever happen, not under her gaze."Get up and walk out of my room'' Ashina pointed at the door to the maid who stared at her with shock on her face."My lady,'' she muttered out in shock.Ashina turned to look at her with anger in her eyes."I have told you not to call me that way, didn't I? Are you dumb or you do not like taking instructions that you have been given?" Ashina asked with a smirk on her lips. The maid stared straight at Ashina with a stunned look on her face. She didn't know what she had done wrong. "Butt.." "I wouldn't want to repeat myself," Ashina warned her. She exhaled sharply before standing up abruptly and walking toward the door. She shook her head, ref
