The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 139 by Ebony Woods

Evelyn POV

“Noah, it’s not my first pregnancy.”

“Evelyn, you nearly drowned. You had a lot of water still in your lungs. I’m just making sure the baby is healthy.”

“And I appreciate it, I really do. But you said the scan and tests came back fine and that you felt the heartbeat was strong. I promise if I feel any changes you’ll be the first to know.”

I’ve been awake in the hospital for the past two days now and the just sitting around and resting was driving me insane. I had things to do, revenge to organise.

I was also desperate to see my older babies and let them know the happy news. Because it was happy news, even during a sad time where we had lost fighters and families were in pain. It was still important to acknowledge the happy moments as well as morn the losses.

Cassandra was helping Reuben at home apparently, and I was grateful. He actually believed Elspeth when she said I usually allow her to have a bowl of ice cream for breakfast. The sooner I got home the more we can get back to a normal routine.

Leaving the hospital, Reuben made sure to drive me back…it was a five minute walk, if even that. His protective levels had multiplied since finding out I was pregnant.

I didn’t have the heart to remind him I’ve been pregnant before and was without him last time. No, best to let him be protective if that makes him feel included in my early stages when realistically, there wasn’t a lot any partner could do right now.

As I walk into the house I find Elspeth and Harry making cupcakes together in the kitchen, their baking operation being overseen by Beatrice.

As soon as Evelyn sees me, she runs over to me and I pull her up into my arms. She wraps her legs around me, which earns a small growl by Reuben. Luckily it is missed by Elspeth but not by me.

“Reuben, you’ve got to calm down. I’m not the first female to be pregnant with older children. The baby will be fine. You’re going to drive me insane otherwise.”

Having said my peace and making sure Elspeth is okay, we then move on to find Rex, alone in the garden. He was sitting on the bench with a football by his feet. He looked sad.

Picking up on my concern through the bond, Reuben wraps his hands around my stomach from behind, his chin resting on my shoulder as his voice enters my mind.

“He helped Liberty pull you out. He gave you CPR.”

I want to cry. Oh my brave little alpha. Rex had been through so much already.

“Can I have a moment alone with him… I’ll have a herbal tea please? Doctor’s orders.” I cheekily ask through the mind-link before Reuben kisses his mate mark on my neck, leaving tingles in his wake and heads back into the kitchen.

So much had happened to Rex…the car shooting and kidnap, the attack on the pack which he had to hide in the basement for, having to shoot me in the leg to keep me alive, and now the Lake House. He’s been through so much, yet he was taking it in his stride.

“Hello darling..” I sit down next to him. He was miles away so much so that he didn’t notice my approach and jolted, kicking the ball in the process.

“You’re out? How are you feeling?”

“I’m feeling good…” He cuts me off with a knowing stare which makes me change my answer.

“Okay a little sore, but I’ll be okay after a nice bath. How are you?”

“I’m okay, I wasn’t injured.”

“No, but not all injuries are physical. You’d tell me if something was upsetting you wouldn’t you?” I hoped he would but it didn’t hurt to remind him I was always here to listen.

“I’m annoyed at myself for not stopping Auntie Lib, but there was nothing I could do.” Even saying the words seems to help him release some guilt. His head leans back on the bench as his head looks up to the sky.

“No and that’s not your fault darling. She left on her own accord, she did what she felt she needed to do. The Moon Goddess has a plan for us all. Sometimes it may not seem like it, it might seem she has forgotten us. But whatever path Liberty is on, it’s a path she needs to follow. All we can hope is that our paths entwine again and for longer next time.”

I think my chat with Rex helped him, he quite happily joined Elspeth and Harry to sample the cakes they made.

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.
