The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 142 by Ebony Woods

“Eight!” He responds as we walk into a large cell, eight male rogues standing against the back wall. All trembling as Reuben releases his aura into the room, all but one. Reuben notices, as do I.

“I’m going to make this very simple…” Reuben growls at the men in the room, his eyes instantly turning the dark navy blue of his wolf, the room becoming small under his presence. Even my own throat catching.

“..I need someone to go undercover, to find information out from a secret meeting with a number of packs. I will need this person to return to me with certain information. If they don’t I will kill them. If they fail to gather the information, I will kill them. If they betray me by not attending…”

“You’ll kill them.” The rogue that wasn’t as affected by Reuben’s aura cuts in, a humorous look on his face.

“Are you volunteering?” I respond with a snarl for interrupting my alpha king.

“Depends on the payment, the reward for completing the task.”

“You get to remain alive.” Reuben roars, reminding this young wolf who exactly was in charge here. He can’t be more than sixteen, if that, but there was something about him. Something that oozed power even from such a young age. He didn’t seem like the typical down and out rogue.

“Me…I’ll do it!” One of the other rogues puts his hand up.

“What happens if we don’t put ourselves forward.” Another one asks only to be laughed at by the cocky little shit that was becoming more vocal.

“You won’t step out of here alive…like he said, he only needs one.”

“You seem very accustomed to the mind set of an alpha, what’s your name?” I growl, my voice sounding more animalistic than human.

“My name can be traced, I won’t speak it amongst a crowd of treacherous rogues. If I live to carry out your orders then I’ll speak it.”

“Is this kid for real?” Reuben’s voice enters my head as a slight snigger.

“Yep, I think so.” I respond instantly.

“I’ll tell you what, I’ll let you all decide. You all came with the clear instructions to kill, so I’ll let you at least have a chance to decide your own fate.”

“What the fuck does that mean?” A rogue shouts out at Reuben as we already start to exit the cell door.

I knew exactly what it meant, Noah not so much. He was eyeing me with suspicion, trying to read me for a clue as to what Reuben meant.

“I’ll see you in a few hours then.” We hear the cocky rogue’s voice just as the door is locked behind us. A cold sensation taking over me, yet a level of excitement to find out if he would come out as the winner.

I’ll have to hide the after events away from Noah, this will go against his and Evelyn’s morals. But sometimes in a state of war, cruel decisions were made and only the strongest came out fighting. Because we were at war, the burned out ruins of the Lake House were evident of that. The pictures of the human soldiers armed with poisonous bullets sent to wipe out the Silver Moon pack, again, is what we are up against.

“Do I want to know what that was about?” Noah whispers to me as we both slow our walk, Reuben walking ahead.

“Honestly mate, no. I’ll make sure things are sorted. Better for you that you stay clear of the cells for a day or two.”

I’ll have to liaise with our own warriors to organise the clean up operation. I can’t put the Silver Moon warriors in that position.

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.
