The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 138 by Ebony Woods

I step forward looking at the photos of the dead soldiers, more than I actually expected. Fuck, how did Vicky get a hold of them?

“What is this?”

“Those are the soldiers we took down. Some are in holding but we had to kill a few.”

“This isn’t just a few soldiers Pierce, this is two to three squads…”

“You think I would have left your family, my mate for a pathetic threat?”

He snarls at me coldly, he was angry… angry at Vicky, angry at Liberty, angry at himself.

Although I was taken aback by his outburst, I don’t answer him, my anger at him decreasing knowing just how big of a threat he managed to eliminate with his men. The human soldiers were sent to kill, the weapons and armour were a clear indicator. He saved us from losing this battle.

I redirect the topic by looking at the maps, he was clearly looking for Liberty. Fuck! I found being away from Evelyn for four years the toughest of my life. I didn’t even know back then that she was still alive and even my fated mate. He knows, and now he has to decide whether to find her or continue on with his life without her.

“Evelyn is awake…” He has been blaming himself for everything and I need to at least put his mind at ease over Evelyn. His shoulders relax slightly at the news.

“That’s good. I’m glad she’ll be okay.” His voice is still cold, but he is trying to show how relieved his is. His mind is just elsewhere at the moment.

“Look…” I start but am interrupted when Pierce stands up abruptly and pushes all of the maps on to the floor with a low growl.

His wolf is needing an outlet for his internal anger and I’m not here to stop him. I watch silently as he trashes Evelyn’s office, letting him get his emotions out.

I’ll have time to make sure Evelyn’s office is straightened back out…that any furniture is fixed before she returns. But right now Pierce needed this for his own sanity. He needs to shift but I’m assuming his own wolf is also punishing him and shutting him off from shifting.

His eyes turn on me, the anger demon within him wanting a fight…most likely wanting me to put him out of his misery by punching him unconscious. But I don’t react to his behaviour, he was hurting and hurting him would be an unkind thing to do.

He finally stops, his eyes closing as he tries to slow down his breathing, a loud sigh escaping him.

“I was too harsh on Liberty, I can see that now.” I offer, because deep down it’s now how I feel. My actions perhaps ostracised her slightly, where really she needed more support.

She was young and had only found out about our kind. That she was half werewolf, half human and had been drugged since she was thirteen. My actions drove her away. I should have been more understanding, seen her side of things more.

“She was wrong to help Malcolm escape and she knew it. If Evelyn hadn’t ..” His words cut out, him not wanting to say it and me not wanting to hear it. If Evelyn hadn’t survived it would have killed Liberty too. I have no doubt about that.

“Evelyn’s pregnant…I just found out. It’s why she couldn’t shift. Liberty saved her and our baby’s life.”

“Pregnant? Woah…I’m pleased for you my brother.” He claps his hand on my shoulder, putting his own torment aside for my happiness.

“I’ve lost her, I can feel it. My wolf can feel it.”

“Then we will find her, together. Whatever it takes!”

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.
