Roman's pov.My father is livid."What is the meaning of all this, Roman!"My eyes snap up to meet his and I can see the rage he's trying to control. I reply calmly."Of all what?"The rest of the council is behind him, and soon they all come into view. My father and his beta remain the tallest amongst them, and even though they're all aged now, the black ensembles and fitted suits give them looks of potent danger and power.I direct my gaze back to my father and I see the anger behind his glowing blue eyes."I heard you brought a Rogue into the pack, Roman. You're sheltering a rogue in our pack!"I lean back in my seat and place my clasped hands on the table."The issue of the female werewolf and pup now taking residence in the pack will be addressed accordingly, that isn't the only thing we have to cover today. And lest you forget, Mr. Kai, this is now my pack. I am the Alpha and I will handle the pack in whatever way I think is best."My father recoils into himself so fast that I w
Hunter's pov. The sound of moans fill the air. "Ah, fuck me harder Alpha!" A cruel smile lights up my face when I hear those words. There are three ladies in the room with me and they're all stark naked. The scent of female pheromones is heavy in the air and each whiff of it sends a fresh dose of blood to my cock. I love that feeling, being so hard that your cock feels like a rock. The bitch who moaned is riding me. This is the first time I'm having sex since that bitch ran away. This is the sort of sex she could never give me. These whores will bear children for me. Strong sons that will carry on my name and put a smile on my face. I look into the pleasure filled eyes of the redhead riding me and I smirk as I drag her head down to kiss me. A knock comes from the door. "Alpha Hunter, Beta Knoxx is here to see you." The guard's words are rushed but Knoxx doesn't wait for him to finish talking before he barges in. His eyes scan the expanse of the room and upon realizing what
Scarlett's pov. What in hell am I doing right now? I try to move and am restricted yet again because the huge arm around my waist won't let me. Alpha Roman has me in his hold, and I'm embarrassed at how much I like it. Hells, why am I acting this way? I'm supposed to be freaking out right now, trying to push him away in fear and screaming at him to leave me alone. Hunter has wounded a part of my spirit and that wound is still pink and raw, but the man whose body I'm resting on isn't Hunter, and my spirit seems to be fully aware of that. But still, this isn't appropriate. I clear my throat and try again. "I'm fine now, Alpha Roman. I promise. My chest doesn't hurt anymore and I can breathe properly." I don't get any response but I'm dead sure he heard me. "Alpha Roman?" No response. "Alpha Roman?" Cold fear rushes through me this time and I gulp. Is he dead? "Roman?" "I can hear you very well Scarlett, and I'm glad we're now on a first-name basis. Is there anything you wa
My hands are shaking and Maya is still crying. I have her cradled against me and I can't think straight."Maya, tell mummy what's wrong?"She doesn't say anything. She just goes on crying and I let her because sometimes that's what we need to do. Something has hurt her.Something or someone.My mind flies to several possible suspects but I turn up with nothing. Alpha Roman's beta came to pick her up specially this morning and I followed them to the auditorium. The teacher is a slightly aged lady and her male counterpart assists her. Fen assured me that they only teach them the basics for now.Things like how to maintain a proper stance.Basic muscle training like sprinting, and climbing, just basic stuff. Maya was the first to get there this morning and it isn't even three hours yet but she's back like this."Maya, did anyone hurt you?"Maya calms down but only slightly so she can nod her head.Fury seeps into my bones and I smoothen her hair softly."Was it one of the trainers there?
Roman's pov.She hesitated.I look at the time on my watch and try to get that moment out of my head, but I can't.I asked her if she trusted me and she hesitated for a split second before sighing and giving a nod. There's nothing I can use to describe how that made me feel. It made me feel like a liar and a fool.Well, of course she wouldn't trust me right away. I'm the Alpha that has growled at her every time he met her and who almost couldn't control himself today.I loosen the tie around my neck and try to breathe better.It's hard being around Scarlett, even harder being alone with her.A series of knocks come from my door and my head whips to the sound immediately."Come in."My father's personal assistant opens the door and steps in not a second later. She walks over to my table briskly before dropping the file she has in her hands."There are the reports you asked for, Alpha Roman. Your father requires a few days off to rest and has asked that you should be informed of this hi
I move my head to the side as I roll on the bed and scrunch up an eyebrow. Maya was bone-deep exhausted when she came back, and according to her she had been lied to and wronged by Roman. His Beta had put her through even more training when she went out to the gardens and while she liked it, she didn't like being lied to. I chuckle as that thought runs through my head and I try to slowly extricate the hand she has in her hold. The Alpha Conference is something I know of. It is held every three years, and as Roman said it is a gathering of all the Alphas in the state. It's much larger than that though. I've heard Hunter having council meetings about this Conference, planning year on end for it. The Alpha Conference might be why he's so horrible to me, but that's a matter for another day. I slip out of bed and get myself ready. Alpha Roman of the Ironclaw pack is a man who loves his pack. Even if I couldn't tell that from the rumors I have heard of him, I can tell from the way he s
"Follow them." Fen nods and motions to the warriors hiding in the treescape. I feel the magic that hums in the air as they transform. My warriors turn back to give me one last look, and I let my eyes glow as Fenrir comes to the surface to encourage his fellow warriors. Fenrir is a leader, a commander among wolves, and he's got guts of steel. He's made that more than evident today. Fen and six warriors take off in their wolf form and I punch the nearest tree as I grit my teeth. The sound of deep cracking comes next and with a groan the tree collapses. I take a deep breath and start pacing. Calm down, Roman. You can do this. Yes... you might have just sent your second mate off into lethal danger, literally risking her life because she wanted to make up for forgetting a car, something that might have been your fault since you didn't let her breathe for two minutes without making her nervous! But you can do this. You can. Fuck, what the hell am I doing! I need to go after them.
"Can you see me, Scarlett?"I turn and giggle because I can't. Hunter has plunged me into darkness with the blindfold and his voice is the only thing leading me to him."Come Scarlett."That voice has changed.I burst out of sleep with a start and take in my surroundings.The room is dark. Pitch black and illuminated only by the shimmer of the moon coming in through the windows.This is not my room. Maya's not here, but I recognize these surroundings. This is Alpha Roman's room.At the mention of his name, my memories start flowing back like a stream.I asked to be the one who drove the car.Our talk about the Alpha Conference and how he plans to use it in getting me free of Hunter made me feel excited. It was a genius-level plan.Simple yet complicated, and one of those complications was concealing my identity from Hunter for the next two months until the Alpha Conference.The car came back to me immediately. If Hunter could place trackers on my boots then he could do the same thing
