The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 137 by Ebony Woods

Reuben POV

I found leaving Evelyn in the hospital hard, but she was determined for us to not sit back. We needed to push forward, we needed to end this threat to our family and packs once and for all. Utilise this time to find weaknesses in their network. We had a feeling that Father didn’t know of Vicky’s attack. That they had broken their alliance. Classic trait of Father, getting too greedy and not tidying up his lose ends.

Knowing now that a new life was growing inside of her, I can’t believe how fucking stupid I was at leaving her at the Lake House and also that Pierce left them.

This baby would have me from day one, I wouldn’t let him or her down like I did Rex and Elspeth in the beginning. This baby was my chance at redemption.

I only finally left the hospital when Evelyn fell back asleep and Noah assured me that he would stay with her. That he would make sure she was given an infusion of vitamins to help with the her recovery and the demands of the baby.

I was holding a scan picture in my hand as I walked back to the Silver Moon’s alpha house. This baby was already perfect, and I would do everything within my power to keep my family safe. I wasn’t a naturally smiley person but I was struggling to hide the huge grin that wanted to remain on my face since I heard the news. I had only been living off of pure anger since the attack.

I hadn’t seen Pierce since we returned to the main pack lands. There was a burning rage within me that he left my mate and children to defend for themselves. Even when he promised me he would stay and guard them with his life.

My anger was so intense until Evelyn woke up that it was better for our friendship that I didn’t see him.

Walking into the house, I place the scan picture in my back trouser pocket.

Evelyn had asked that I wait to tell the children, wait until we are there together and of course I wouldn’t take that away from her. I wanted to check on the children but also liaise with my IT department back at the Red Stone pack to double their efforts in tracking down my Father. There was only so many rocks he could hide under.

I walk into the front room to find Rex watching the television and Elspeth asleep on the sofa, frustratingly with Harry asleep next to her. I move forward wanting to pick her up and put her in her bed when Rex stops me.

“Leave them Dad. She’s only just gone to sleep when Harry arrived.” He has the nerve to tut at me and I can only see the back of his head but I’m certain he would have rolled his yes. Kids today!

“I don’t think so, not on my watch…”

“Well, they are on my watch and he hasn’t slept at all since he found out what happened to us. Just leave them be. I’ll stay.”

“I’m sorry, are you telling me what to do?”

“No, just advising…” He turns at the most opportune moment with a smirk on his face.

I can’t help but chuckle at his response, knowing full well he would always have his sister’s best interest at heart. And this new baby, that Rex would be the great big brother to this little one that he is to Elspeth. What if it’s a girl? Oh goddess, can I cope with two daughters to keep safe and keeping fending off the boys.

Leaving Rex to his film, I head into my office keen to call my pack. Rex had been doing well since I started training him, it helped to train him with Liberty as well. Although, now he’ll be training alone.

Opening the door I find Pierce sitting on Evelyn’s round meeting table, his head in his hands…the table covered in maps and pictures. He was a ghost of himself. It was obvious that he hadn’t slept or eaten since we returned.

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.
