The word 'mate' is said so often around here that it has just become a part of everyday life. But never in a million years did I ever think it would be directed at me. And the shit storm that followed was nothing I didn't expect. With a father that vowed never to let me go and a mate vowing to never leave me, things were about to get really complicated. With me stuck right in the middleView More
NINE WEEKS LATER Over the last two months every dream I had been given by the Moon Goddess had come true. But because of the warnings, so many packs had been spared by rogue attacks. Which meant that we had allies around the country from some packs that we didn't even know existed. And one night when I woke up I had to shake Tyler awake. "Alright. What pack is it this time?" He asked. "No pack. I'm in labor." I announced. "What?" He asked jumping up frantically. "Calm down before you hurt yourself. Just get my bag. Call Dr. Missy. We are going to the hospital." I say calmly trying to get out of bed with my massive stomach. "Alright. I can handle that." He says. So he grabs my bag and mind linked Dr. Missy. He helped me downstairs and we headed straight to the car and he sped the whole way to the hospital. "Would you slow down. You're going to kill the whole three of us before we even get to the hospital." I yelled. "Are you in a lot of pain?" He asked. "Not at the mom
I tried to stand up but I was getting too exhausted and I was having trouble getting out of the chair. "Can you guys excuse us for a moment?" I asked looking at everyone else at the table. I saw Tyler smirking as I was trying to get out of the chair. "Sure. We'll be over there hurrying up that food." Tyler says kissing me. "Yes please. Tell Ethan I am pregnant and ravenous. I will eat him if he doesn't hurry up." I said loudly. "I'm going as fast as I can." Ethan defended himself. And everyone left the table and I told the guys to sit down. "So, you four were all out looking for me as well." I say. "You are our sister. No matter what you say. We do love you." Ben says. "I know that. And I know now that I've been a real bitch. I think I felt abandoned when you guys left. You said that you were going to come back for me but you never did. You left me alone with him." I explained. "We tried." Heath says. "What?" I asked. "We tried to come back a couple of times. The Al
TESSA POV I was in hospital for three days in that pack before I was finally stable enough to leave and Cade drove us home while Tyler sat in the backseat with me. It felt good to be showered and in clean clothes again. It took three hours to drive back home from there and when we got there I was surprised by all my friends at the house waiting with a surprise party. I still wasn't at 100% but I was so glad that my friends were there for me. Even Ethan, Kaylee, Wyatt, Tobias and Taylor were there. Ethan was manning the barbeque outside and Aria and Bella were making the salads and Naomi and Ruby were setting up the snack tables. "This looks awesome. Thank you so much for this guys." I tell them all. "We will be joining you all shortly. We're just gonna see Mr. Missy after the long journey." Tyler says. "I'm fine Tyler. I just sat in the car." I say. "This is not negotiable. You are seeing the Doc on a regular basis. Weather you like it or not. We're not taking any chances.
TYLER POV Cade floored it the whole way to the closest pack territory and I needed permission from the Alpha to enter his land. But once I told him who I was and the situation that we had here, he let us straight in. I took Tessa to the hospital and the doctor was already waiting for us. I carried her in and placed her on a bed in a waiting examination room and as many times as they tried to get me to leave, I wouldn't leave the room. The checked all her vitals, drew blood, and did a lot more examinations on her. And a lot of it was hard to watch. They hooked her up to all kinds of machines and none of the doctors or nurses were making any sense to me. They checked for the baby as well. To make sure that the baby was alright. And they finally forced me out of the room so that they could work. I seemed to be sitting outside that room for hours with Cade and I couldn't sit still. I was receiving mind links from the other warriors while they were handling the clean up. It needed
TESSA POV No one found me hiding behind that dumpster for the rest of the afternoon which I was grateful for. But then it started getting dark. I noticed that the shops started closing around town. It truely was a small town. Nothing stayed open after dark and the streets were deserted. I came out from my hiding place looking around to see if I could see any sign of anyone coming to help me. But there was nothing. Until I heard someone walk into the street behind me clicking her tongue. I turned around slowly and Katherine was standing in the middle of the street. "What are you going to do now? There aren't any humans to witness any vampire or werewolf activities. So, I can do whatever I want here and there's nothing anyone can do about it." She smirks. And I suddenly throw my hand up and hit her with a bolt of electricity that sent her flying 20 feet backwards on the road and she landed on her back. "Wanna bet bitch." I say. "Right. So you're gonna do it the hard way." She
BELLA POV The packhouse had been so quiet for days. My mate had been gone for four days now out looking for Tessa with Tyler and I had nothing to do but have nightmares about the situation or pace around the house and try to clean every surface of the packhouse. Because I felt completely useless. I decided to get on the computer and I hacked onto the dark web and I started reading up about Katherine. Everything that everyone knew about her. And there was a lot. Apparently she had been around for a long time. A lot longer than Angelo and his siblings. And she never left a good impression on anyone by the looks of it. An entire village burnt in England about 300 years ago that Katherine was responsible for. 200 human lives perished that night. Another time she was accused of witch craft and was almost killed in the witch trial of the 1700's but managed to escape. She was accused of being a vampire in the 1800's and was captured but again, she escaped. She loved the finer things
TESSA POV I woke up the following morning to someone opening the door again and it was Sawyer. He was bringing in my breakfast for me. He placed the tray down on the side of my bed and he checked my bullet wounds. The one on my shoulder and my arm. And he needed to change the dressing. "How did you sleep?" Sawyer asked. "Fan-fucking-tastic. And you?" I asked not really caring. "Alright. Dumb question." He says. "What the fuck is this?" I asked looking in the mug that he bought in. "It's blood. Katherine wants the baby to start getting used to the taste." He explained. "I am not drinking that shit. I have never drank blood in my life. Except for maybe a couple of times when I was a wolf. But that's only while I was hunting. I am not knowingly going to drink blood. I want coffee." I demand. "I'll try to get you some coffee." He says. "Good. Because I'm not nice unless I have coffee in the morning." I say. "Wait a minute. Is this you being nice?" He asked. "So far, ye
TESSA POV I had been slipping in and out of consciousness for a couple of days now while my body tried to mend from the poisons. And the morning that I did wake up and I felt completely lucid it took me several minutes for everything to register. The attack at home, being shot and poisoned and kidnapped. I looked around the room that I was in. It was pretty basic for a mansion that we were in. There was only a bed and a single chair across the room from me. I felt a sharp pain around my ankle and I looked down to see the silver shackle around my leg that was attached to the bed. I started kicking my leg. Trying to get it to break the bed leg but I wasn't strong enough yet. Then I heard the door handle turning and I shimmied back against the back of the bed and I rested my hands over my stomach. A man walked in, who was obviously a vampire, and he turned the light on but it was still pretty dull. "Relax. I'm not going to hurt you. I promise. My name is Sawyer." He says coming i
TYLER POV Carter gave me photos from the security camera's out the front of the packhouse and I growled as soon as I saw a man holding my mate. But then I stood in my chair and glared at the photos. "Why is she bleeding. You never said that she was bleeding." I growled out so loud that the windows shook. "That's what alerted me to the problem in the first place. One of them shot her while in the bedroom. I'm guessing she tried to use her powers because she was shot in the forearm. And then I guess that's when they got her with the darts. But when they came out of the packhouse that women came up and she shot Tessa in the shoulder to prove that she would kill her if she had to." Carter explained cowering back from me. "She should have healed from those gunshot wounds though." I say trying to calm myself down. "They were silver bullets. I could smell the silver." Carter says. And I grabbed the side of my desk and threw it across the room and it shattered when it hit the wall.
