He watched her in the distance, his mind clouded over in confusion. How could he, one of the coldest Alphas in the country, have a mate?The thought of having to take care of someone for the rest of his life haunted him. He always thought he was meant to run the most powerful pack that had no weaknesses; once his wolf becomes attached to hers, nothing can tear them apart. It is known to be the cause of the deaths of many great Alphas, and yet here he stood, unable to tear his eyes away from her.Her soft, shimmering lips stood out to him from across the clearing, occasionally being grazed by her soft, silky golden hair. Her delicate fingers brushed a strand from over her crystal blue eyes as they continued to gaze over the leather-covered book resting in the center of her lap.A soft breeze flowed over her bare shoulders, sending her scent right in his direction. A shiver traveled up his spine as his eyes rolled back into his head. A low growl erupted from his chest, wondering why she was all alone in an empty clearing. She seemed like a prize he had yet to win. (CompleteView More
Salen was a ball of nerves as she moved into the ballroom, attracting stares from their guests. Celus' uncle smiled proudly at her when she passed him near the stage. Being Celus' mate, she would be crowned once they were married; something that was in place as security for the Luna Queen title. She loved her mate more than anything, she just never expected something like this to happen to her. The royal advisor stepped onto the stage, silencing the crowd. "I want to thank you all so much for joining us on this exciting day. It is now time to crown our now monarch; a time to celebrate as this happens rarely in a lifetime." The guests cheered, excited to get a good glimpse at their future King. Saifya gave Salen a thumbs up and a bright smile, calming her racing heart and making her nerves start to retreat to the back of her mind. She stood next to Mandry who was aggressively wiping the tears of pride from her cheeks. This was Celus' big moment, and she wasn't
Tne next morning went by in a blur. Castle staff were busy helping Celus and Brady prepare for the ceremony. Salen was whisked away by Safiya to get dressed up together in her room.Celus was being bombarded with last minute knowledge from Landrews as the staff rushed to bring in two black suits; one for Celus, and the other for Brady. They also brought in the royal robe that had been passed down through generations. Every king that had been crowned in their monarchy had worn it all the way back to the first family.The robe was a royal blue color with white fur lining the outer trim. It had a large golden crown embroidered in the center along with the royal crest.Celus groaned as he took the suit into his arms and moved to the connected bathroom to change out of his shorts and long sleeve shirt.The suit was black with silver cufflings that had the golden crest engraved into them. It was paired with a plain white button-up shirt and matching black tie.
The decorating of the castle began after Landrews' announcement to his pack. Most were thrilled for their future under the new monarchy, and they believed he could do good for his people.Salen stood along Celus' side as he continued his training and learned anything that would be important for him before he took over. That included the names and locations of all of the packs and leaders that he would rule over.Celus ran his hand lightly over the worn map that draped over Landrews' desk. His pack title along with his sirname was printed in cursive ink over a large plot of land not far from the kingdom. He missed his home, but this would be good for all of them in the long run.Salen stepped forward and rested a calm and reassuring hand on his shoulder as they listened to Alpha Landrews ramble on about the history of each territory; from wars over land to the struggles of keeping and maintaining each leading family."The Alphas of every pack report monthl
Landrews requested the presence of Brady and Celus early the next morning. He was sitting in his office working on paperwork when they found him."You wanted to see us?" Celus asked with slight annoyance. He left Salen in their bed still fast asleep. She whined slightly when he had to leave her, but she eventually rolled over and started to snore slightly."Yes, come in and close the door behind you." Landrews waved, not looking up from his pages. Brady and Celus just shared a confused look before doing what he said.After a few minutes of silence, Brady leaned forward in the seat across from Landrews and cleared his throat. "Is-is something wrong?" He stuttered as he struggled to keep his confidence. Worry clouded his face as the Alpha King continued to work.Celus growled impatiently, catching both of their attention. "What's going on? I left my mate the morning after I proposed. She's going to be upset when she wakes up with me gone, and frankly
"Cheers to the happy couple!" Landrews announced, holding his glass of champagne in the air. When he said he was going to plan things, he really went overboard.He not only had the proposal planned, which they ended up not using, but he had a party waiting for them when they got back to the castle. Every member of the royal pack stood facing the entrance as they walked inside, cheering and congratulating them as they drank the champagne Landrews had sitting out on the counter."Come in, we have food and plenty to drink." Landrews rested his hand on Celus' back and led them through the crowd. He gave his guests friendly smiles and thanked them for coming as they neared the buffet table. "This is all for you, so eat up." He patted them both on the shoulder and turned to socialize.Celus gave Salen a weary look, which she returned with a shrug of her shoulders."This might be good for you. You can get to know your new members before your coronation." Celus s
Celus paced frantically as warriors rushed around him. Landrews had gotten a lot of men to help with the proposal as he wanted it to be a big thing for everyone.Celus' heart raced as he felt his hands begin to sweat. Proposing to Salen was huge, but the added anxiety of Brady and Landrews taking control made him want to pass out."Are you ready for this?" Brady asked from behind him. Celus shot him a glare and gripped his hands tightly in front of his chest."No." He wheezed. "This isn't what I wanted." Brady looked at him in confusion."What do you mean?" Celus gave him a dead panned look and motioned around him at all the crazy decorations that were being set up. Brady gave him a sly smile and tucked his head. He sighed and dropped the clipboard that was in his hand to his side. "I'm sorry. We went way too crazy.""You think?" Celus scoffed as he plopped down on a garden bench. "This is way too much." He sighed, holding his head in his hands.
Celus dismissed himself from Andrew and crossed the clearing to be by Salen's side. If Kristopher and Henry were planning something, he wanted to make sure she stayed safe in all of it. It wasn't her fault they were in this mess in the first place.Salen smiled wide when he got close to her. She reached down and took his hand as she continued her conversation with Suzanne.The birthday party ended shortly after that. Salen offered to help clean up, which meant Celus would be there, too.He helped pull down the tall decorations and carried the now folded dessert tables back to a storage room.The pack mothers were very thankful for his help, and watched him with a newly found interest. The way he held himself with confidence, but turned into a loving mate as soon as Salen came to his side.His serious expression that was plastered to his face as he continued to clean up fell to a warm smile when Salen went over to help him."You
One week of training had gone by, and Celus and Brady were improving rapidly. Fighting against Zachary and Elijah was now no problem for them, and the training uniforms became natural to wear."Today we are going to fit you for our actual armor. This is going to feel significantly heavier and more difficult to move in." Landrews announced as the four of them stood in front of him in the weapons room. "You did well with the training gear, rather quickly might I add, so I want you to get used to this new equipment." He reached up and pulled two sets of gear from the wall and tossed them to Celus and Brady.Brady held up the armor to himself with wide eyes. "This is a lot heavier." He shook it, listening to the clanking of the metal pieces.Celus slid the chestplate over his head, adjusting it into place. He clipped it together and began piecing the rest onto his body.Zachary and Elijah stood next to them with their armor already on. They helped them figure
