The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 140 by Ebony Woods

We were sitting at the kitchen table, just the four of us. Beatrice had taken Harry home now that I was home to help Donnie with Baby Harper.

This felt like the right time to tell them. I know it was early but I wanted them to be involved from the early stages, for us to feel like the close family that we were becoming.

“Mum and I happen to have some news .” Reuben excitedly announces.

“Oh?” Elspeth hums as she bites into her third cupcake…honestly where does she put it.

“Yes…we had a new photo taken this morning.” I pull my copy of the scan picture out of my pocket and place it on the table.

“We are going to have a baby.” I smile at them both, nervous of how they would react.

“A baby?” Elspeth shrieks spitting crumbs out everywhere. A few hitting my in the eye.

“Elspeth…” I reprimand her as I wipe at my eye.

“Sorry Mummy. Is it a boy or girl?”

“We don’t know yet.”

“Where will we live? Here or the Red Stone pack?”

Rex’s asks, as he calmly picks up the scan picture and looks at it intently.

“We will buy some land in-between our pack grounds and make it our main family base.” Reuben informs them, something that hopefully would ideally reduce our concerns in being too far away from our own pack. At least half way in-between both, we were making conscious efforts to put measures in place.

“But what about Harry, I can’t not see him.”

I can’t help but laugh at Elspeth’s outburst.

“Don’t worry sweetheart, he can come visit.” I reassure her but I’m not too convinced.

“Sounds good. The baby’s a boy by the way…” Rex states confidently as he places the scan picture back on the table.

“How can you be so sure?” Reuben quirks an eyebrow at him. Rex takes a moment before answering, was he trying to think of his response?

“He has a good football kick in the photo….”

“Girls can play football Rex…not just boys.” She huffs as she snatches the scan from out of his grip.

I was grateful for Miss Smith to break up Rex’s and Elspeth’s quarrelling about football. She took them aside to do some phonics work giving me some time to go rest. It’s actually a bath I longed for.

Walking past my office I notice the door ajar, both Pierce and Nate inside. Pushing on the door, I feel Reuben’s disapproval through the mate bond of me not going up to rest like I said I would.

“What’s all this?” My office was a complete mess. I’m talking maps, CCTV pictures, public transport schedules and a police radio on the go.

“Evelyn…” They both look to me, both looking tired but pleased with my being back home.

“What’s going on?”

“Yes sorry, your office is looking a bit messy isn’t it.” Nate scratches the top of his head looking at the mess that once was my neat, well organised office.

“We didn’t know where to start, she has no bank account, no digital ID…we are having to do this old school style.” Nate continues as Pierce has barely kept his eyes away from the maps.

I walk over to him, placing my hand on his arm. He was desperate to find her, but I think she needed the space to think and grow into a young adult. Hopefully then they would be more patient with one another.

“How do you find somebody who doesn’t exist?” Pierce sighs as he turns to look at me.

“With patience. She just needs time. Pierce, you need to go home…”


“Pierce, you need some normality otherwise this will eat you up. We will help, we will keep looking too but you need to trust the Moon Goddess. You need to keep your pack safe. That’s you’re job as their alpha. Luna or no Luna, you are their alpha first.” I gently remind him of his duty to his people.

“You can always join our alliances? That will keep it safe.” Reuben smirks, trying to add some humour into the dark atmosphere.

“Not a chance.” Pierce barks back.

“You say that now but you are technically my Brother-in-law, you’ll come around.”

“Maybe you’re right…I just want to find her before Odin does. He’s still a threat to her.”

“I can handle my Father Pierce, you go back. I’ll interrogate the rogues, they won’t be able to fight my aura. I won’t give them the chance.”

Evelyn had been the Luna of the Red Stone Pack for the past two years. An arranged marriage of power to protect her father’s pack, she didn’t for one moment expect to develop feelings for the cold Alpha King. But in the two years ruling by his side, she sees a warmth to Reuben that he keeps hidden. After a night of passion that Reuben makes clear to Evelyn was a mistake, she finds out she is pregnant with the longed future for the ruling pack.

However Evelyn’s happiness at the news is short lived when the love of Reuben’s life returns only just surviving the murder of her own pack. Evelyn soon realises that Vicky isn’t as innocent as she makes out and doesn’t take long for her to get her claws into Reuben. After confronting his ex, Evelyn is a victim of a deliberate attempt to harm her child. She must make a decision to protect the pack’s future from Vicky and the baby’s own father. 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.
