Hi readers. I apologize for the lack of updates these past three days. I forgot to inform you all i would be going on a temporary break. I'm back now (though i hurt my thumb on my break lol) Updates will come in soon, and since this is the last month of updates for Luna Scarlett, i will most likely upload 2 or more chapters each day, depending on how much i can write. I hope you guys are excited. I saw a recent comment about chapter length, i have explained the concept of this earlier but no worries, the new chapters should be longer hopefully. Love you all, and thank you so much for reading my book. Your support and readership means the world to me💕 I will think of creating a reader group somewhere so we can all connect and i can introduce some of my new book ideas as well as give updates on ongoing books.Hope to see you all there.
“What are you doing here?”Hunter’s form in the doorway sets red filling my vision. It’s been a while since I saw his face and though my days haven’t been peaceful, they’ve been bearable.His face makes everything feel the worst kind of unbearable and I want it gone.“Leave.”My word is crisp and clear and I see Hunte’s eyes widen before he scoffs.“You haven’t even heard what I want to say.”“I don’t want to hear it. I want you gone, now. Leave. You aren’t allowed here anymore.”“And who says I'm not?” He takes a step into the room, “I have every right to be here, my child is here, and so is his mother. If you didn’t want me here, you wouldn’t ask Roman to keep them hostage.”I drop the food in my hands first so I don't spill it in anger. I’d probably burn my leg badly if even a drop of it touched me and I won't let Hunter do that to me.I face him fully and make the look on my face neutral. I hate the fact that I know this about Hunter, but I do and it’s a simple fact. The emotions
Roman’s presence carries a chill wind into the room with him.The papers on the table fly off as he walks in and I feel the temperature drop a few degrees. The doctor huffs at the sight of the scattered papers but Roman’s already coming to me, he places a hand on my head the moment he reaches and asks.“Are you okay?”I nod and close my eyes to let the feel of his presence sink into me. Roman’s concern is a thrumming in his veins and I feel it through the mate bond. Fenrir’s anxiety has Fey rising to the surface slightly, the heat of her warming my eyes and my blood.I open my eyes and look at Roman, letting a smile spread on my face as I respond.“I’m okay. I promise. It was just a mild burn. The bowl tipped over suddenly and it spilled on my leg, the water wasn’t even that hot.”A voice cuts me off immediately.“Actually, it was plenty hot.”I direct a mild look at the doctor to hint at her to please shut the fuck up but she goes on, totally ignorant of me as she looks at Roman.“I
There’s crisp silence in the room and Roman sits on the side of my bed. There’s a heavy dip where he settles but it comforts me to feel that dip. I hear his breath go deeper, I hear Roman’s blood begin to rush heavier and there’s the need to have him lay on the bed with me in my blood. An image of that forms in my mind and I chuckle because it would be weird. Roman in the powerfully tailored suit and his leather shoes lying in the too-small hospital bed with me. I reach for his hand instead, and he takes mine in his immediately. I ask lowly, “Are you okay, Roman?” Roman huffs in an emotion that feels like bitter amusement and he turns to look at me, “How?” Explaining how means bringing up my conversation with Hunter and I'm not ready for that yet so I ask quizzically, “Do you know Elara has a master’s in genetic engineering?” I feel something hit me in the gut immediately because I was wrong. I thought bringing up my conversation with Hunter would be appalling yet even this manag
Maya is waiting in our room when I get home and she’s with Axios. They’re seated on the couch and surprisingly, they have a board game set out.Maya’s already looking at the door when I come in and she gets up immediately, running to embrace me. I pick her up in my arms and wrap her in a hug.Ugh, I wanted to do this when she came back from school, “I heard you hurt yourself, mummy.”I nod softly and chuckle, “I’m fine now, baby girl. Did you enjoy lunch? I made it myself.”Maya nods and shyly whispers something in my ear, “He… was here. Axios’s dad.”I do not let the frown that threatens to line my face manifest itself, I ask instead, “Did he say he wanted anything?”Maya shakes her head, “No. He only told us you had an accident while cooking and he made sure we ate.”Axios stands awkwardly by the table and he looks away when I turn my eyes to him. I see they’ve both changed from their uniforms and I nod internally because it means someone’s been taking care of them at least.I drop
“Roman would make such a great dad.”I keep the look on my face blank as Priam approaches me, a smile on his face. I nod when he gets to me because yeah, Roman will.“We’re not here to talk about my husband, are we?”Priam chuckles and leans on the hood of my car. He brings out a thin object from his pocket and places it between his lips. My suspicions are confirmed when the metallic ring of a lighter is heard and I cock an eyebrow up at him, asking, “You smoke now?”Priam shrugs and takes a deep puff of his cigarette stick, walking a few paces away before blowing out the smoke and walking back to me as he replies, “It’s… a special treatment kind of thing, plus it was either this or daily visits to the hospital for a dosage. I chose the option that’d make me look cool as a High Councilor.”I snort, “High Councilors don’t smoke. They act creepy and pass laws, things like that.”Priam pulls from his cigarette stick again, mouth brimming with white smoke as he replies, “ Well this one
She scoffs.“You can’t uninvite me.”Elara’s barely fazed. She closes her book, gets up, dusts her jeans, and flips her loose golden hair over her shoulder.She looks stunning today but her face is set in a sneer as she goes on, “I’m still a member of the Ironclaw pack, and with that comes the immediate invitation to attend the Jubilee. You’ve already done so many things to irk me, Scarlett, let’s not add this to the list.”If it’s possible for me to feel my blood boil, I do. It creates a sick image in my mind as I imagine the thick red liquid steaming and bubbling.“I’VE done things to irk you? You haven’t done anything to be a difficult person all this while?”Elara sets a tired gaze on me, “Bad person. Say what you mean directly.”“I did.”“You’re to be seen nowhere near the hall and nowhere near the Jubilee. I’ll ask the warriors to lock you up if I need to. I have the right to do that as the Luna. Are we clear?”I see Elara’s look turn progressively ugly and she scoffs, giving m
“What are we looking at here?” Roman gives me a look from where he’s seated but I plead with him silently. He had to come back from work because of this, and I had to call in someone I don't think he really likes. Priam crosses his legs and leans back on the couch, his gaze scrutinizing as he watches the video. I can tell that they’re all waiting for me to explain but I’ve already explained. “Someone, or something, deleted footage from the Ironclaw archives a few days ago. As you can see from the footage, there’s bascially no one there, but activity is going on in the room. It’s… a cause for concern at least, because what if this thing harms one of us? It could kill a pack member right here in the packhouse, or do worse, I don’t know. It’s spooky that there might be an invisible person in the packhouse.” Roman’s voice floats into my ears solidly, “It’s more than spooky. It’s a valid cause for concern, especially with the Moon Jubilee set to be held here in a day. This is a secu
