The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 136 by Ebony Woods

“Evelyn what’s wrong?” Noah’s voice rushes into my head.

“Is the baby okay? That’s why I couldn’t shift to fight them off….that’s when I realised I was pregnant.”

He stares at me, whether from the shock of the revelation or the thought of me fighting them both off without my wolf and pregnant I’m not sure.

“Sweetheart, what’s wrong…Noah?” Reuben growls out, his aura starting to circle the hospital room.

“You’re pregnant?” Noah automatically enters into Doctor mode as he hastily heads to the far corner of the room where he pulls on some machines, pulling an ultrasound machine out from the back.

“I’ve lost it haven’t I?” I start to sob, my hands going to my mouth, only for the mask to be in the way.

As soon as he lifts my hospital gown up over my stomach, Reuben growls at Noah before realising what he is doing.

Noah turns on the monitor, applying the cold jelly to my tummy before commencing the scan.

It seems to take an eternity to search for life in my womb, leaving me to think the worse has happened.

As soon as I hear the fast heartbeat my panic starts to quieten down. Noah turns the monitor around, presenting our baby to Reuben and I.

“Wait…are we…” Reuben looks at the monitor, before looking back at me in complete perplexity.

“Congrats you are pregnant.” Noah sings out seemingly happy with the baby’s initial checks to congratulate us.

“I’ll go set up some tests and give you both a moment.”

As Noah leaves the room, Reuben cups my face before kissing me on my forehead..

“Oh Evelyn I am so happy. I promise to be there for everything, I want to be there for everything. This won’t be like last time. I promise.”

“I know…” I respond through the mind -link, enjoying how thrilled he was.

“I’ll buy that land, build us our family home. The twins can have their own bedrooms, and the baby can have their own room too. I’ll build plenty of rooms so they don’t argue. Rooms for visitors also. Oh Evelyn, I thought I lost you. Now we are adding to our family.”

I couldn’t help but giggle, as much as it pained me, from how ecstatic he was.

He was right, this wouldn’t be like last time. We would share every moment together, every milestone. He’ll be there for every step. He would protect us all.

But there was still a threat out there. A threat that lingered even over him, over his life. I couldn’t let our family go through any more heartache, be put in danger again. I had to find the threat and eliminate it. I couldn’t rest until we did.

“Your father Reuben? Any news?”

“Let’s not discuss that now…”

“Yes now Reuben, I can’t bring a baby into a world where they could be out at risk. What if he kidnaps the baby?” My mind was going too fast, my body calling for me to rest yet the worry of what Odin was capable of scared me. What if he had Liberty by now?

“We need to launch an attack, we need to find him. Please Reuben, let’s get this done. Then we can rest and enjoy our lives more peacefully.”

“Sweetheart, we are both the leaders of alliances. I don’t think we will ever have peaceful lives. But okay, I’ll get my IT guys to start working on finding him again. He’ll have to be somewhere.”

I didn’t like the idea of poking a fire that was starting to go out by itself. But Odin would only come back to us two months, ten months or ten years down the line. He would be a constant threat whilst still alive. I need him completely gone, for Elspeth, for Rex and for the baby.

They needed to grow up without the threat of being kidnapped or being attacked. They would have that anyway being who they are, being our children.

But at least this threat we knew and can do something about.

But will the cold ruthless Alpha King refuse to let her go so easily? Will he be responsible for the brutal attack on her family pack, leaving Evelyn’s soul broken? Has Evelyn finally seen Reuben for what he is, beyond salvation…

Chapter One Evelyn POV I am married but not mated. I am the wife of the Alpha King of the Red Stone Pack. His wife, but not the pack’s Luna. But that is only a consideration in technicality. The pack members for the past two years have supported me as the Alpha’s wife and never once made me feel any less of their Luna. The Red Stone Pack is the ruling pack of many, as our warriors remain undefeated in battle. We offer a strong alliance to smaller packs that in time of crisis can call upon the Alpha King and his warriors to help protect and secure their lands. “Luna…be careful. Let me do that.” Candice, one of the alpha mansion’s staff members offers to me. As the acting Luna, I was responsible for the planning and organising of the yearly group pack Moon Conference. We had just completed this year’s event and being the morning after, I was helping with the tidying up. The staff told me not to bother, that I had done all the hard work…but I like to help where I can. Every year the pack would invite the leading families of the incorporated packs to maintain a good rapport amongst the alliance. Being early summer, I organised the gathering outside this year. The weather held and luckily the last-minute forecast of rain didn’t reach us. I was currently standing on top of a ladder pulling down some of the thousands of fairy lights and the remaining pack banners. The banners were my new project, I had newly created them for this year’s celebration. They were designed with the symbol of a crown with a wolf howling into the red blood moon, the Red Stone Pack’s symbol. “I’m fine Candice. You could help by packing some of that food up? Maybe the night watch would like some food this morning as they missed out last night?” I suggest. “Yes Luna, I’m sure they would. You are very kind to think of them.” Candice agrees before calling another pack member over. “Just part of being the Luna.” I softly smile, I wasn’t used to compliments here and still wasn’t sure how to take them. “Michelle, can you help Luna with the lights?” Candice asks Michelle as she heads off to pack up the remaining food. “Of course. Luna let me do that, before the Alpha has our heads!” Michelle quips. I want to say something witty, but it could come across as an insult to the Alpha and our marriage. I had no delusions that the Alpha felt anything romantic towards me. He didn’t even like being in my company. We may be married but we certainly didn’t share a marital bed. In fact, he never touched me, never came close enough for our wolves to bond. Yet I still longed that he would grow to love me, I think that is why I am still here. Michelle climbs another ladder and starts to help me take down the outdoor fairy lights that were wrapped around a large tree. One of many, at this rate we would be here all morning removing these lights. “It was a great gathering Luna, you did incredibly well to organise all of this. I don’t think the gatherings were anything like this before, it’s nice to finally have a Luna again!” Michelle smiles at me. I could smell his scent before he appeared into view. His rich intoxicating sweet leather scent always made my legs tremble and for the first year of our marriage I had to control my wolf every time I was in his presence. He made it very clear that it was a marriage arrangement only to strengthen the packs. He may hold no romantic emotions for me, but I found his presence intense and magnificent. Growing up I had always fancied my now husband, Reuben. Most girls had a crush on him. Even as a young male he was strong, Alpha built, and had long dark blonde hair that he kept tied back. He was gifted by the moon goddess with bright blue eyes that always reminded me of my favourite lake near my home pack. His maturing years did not disappoint and many of the pack member’s females struggled to form a sentence in his presence. Reuben had become Alpha King after our marriage with his father resigning and leaving the overall protection and running of the pack to the two of us. In fact, I hadn’t seen his father since he left, their relationship was clearly strained. Not supportive or a secure outlet of unconditional love like the relationship with my parents. With Reuben’s increasing approach the atmosphere became thick and heavy. I reached higher to unwrap a tangled fairy light to look busy, rather than watch his sexy walk with my drooling mouth. His tight light grey t-shirt could hardly contain his muscles and the fabric looked like it would split at any moment under the strain. His arms were covered in tattoos, and I had only ever once glimpsed at his ink on his back. Large angel wings spanning both shoulder blades with a small name written underneath that I couldn’t quite see at the time. He was also wearing loose black jeans, his signature look for when on pack lands to be able to shift at any moment. With my wolf whimpering in my mind at his presence and my legs feeling weak, I somehow lose my footing on the ladder and start to fall. He is there in a flash, catching me, holding me in a tight grip around my waist. Our eyes meet just for second as I feel his warm breath on my neck, where I should hold his chosen mate mark. His eyes flash from the light blue waters to a dark deep thundery sea blue, a signal that his wolf had come forward.
