The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 145 by Ebony Woods

Evelyn POV

“I don’t understand Reuben, you can’t just let rogues leave. They need to be re- educated…given a chance to be able to fend for themselves. Or if showing remorse, that they can join this or another pack.”

“Evelyn, these people killed our people. They would have killed our children. They can’t stay here. They have gone…I have sorted it.”

“But sorted what Reuben…”

“They are gone, you don’t need to know anything else.”

“You mean you’ve killed them? Damn it Reuben, that’s not how we do things around here.” I was finding it hard to keep my calm at this moment in time.

“Well its how I do things sweetheart and I won’t put yours or our children’s lives in danger.”

I know exactly what he has done. He thinks I’m an idiot, naïve. He thinks I wouldn’t have taken similar actions if required? But you need to at least give people a chance to try and change.

Donnie mind-linked me in the early hours when he noticed them moving the bodies into the cars.

“Evelyn..” Nate tries to back Reuben but I’m not having any of it, I know he was the one that carried out Reuben’s orders. Whilst Reuben was cuddling me in bed.

“I don’t want to hear it Nate…” I put my hand up angrily to cut him off, my glare having already stopped him from continuing with his defensive speech.

“Noah…Noah did you know anything about this?” I turn to my beta, who was being quieter than usual in our security meeting.

“Evelyn…” His eyes flicker to Nate, which I don’t miss.

“May I remind you that you are my beta and follow my rule.” I let my aura roll off me and on to him.

“I had an idea of what might happen but not to what extent.” He admits, struggling under my command.

“You should have told me.” I growl at him, Reuben moving closer to me in a protective movement.

“Told you what Evelyn. That they weren’t safe to keep on pack lands, that yet again we have been attacked and our people killed. The families are still in morning….”

“I know…” I scream at him, my own frustration at the recent events overwhelming me.

“I know they are grieving because I sat in that Lake House feeling them pass over, and even as I was being plunged repeatedly under water I could still feel the pack deaths. I was dying but kept going for as long as I could not only to fight for my children but also to help as many pass over as I could. So don’t dare to try and tell me that what has happened was to help the families grieving, that’s bullshit.”

I can’t believe this has happened, on my pack lands. Without my even knowing. I am absolutely fuming at the three of them.

My hands were shaking with my anger. I feel a hand tug on one, a hand clasping it and holding it firmly for support.

“Evelyn, calm down sweetheart…the baby.” Reuben growls in my head, angry that I was working myself into a state that he thinks would cause stress to the baby. Yet his thumb was now stroking the back of my hand, trying to soothe my emotions.

The tingles were starting to run through my body, the mate bond keeping us connected. No matter how irritated we might be with one another in the moment, it still sent signals.. sparks as a reminder.

“Did you kill them all?” I breathe out, sitting back down if anything to put Reuben’s mind at ease. I was still bloody angry at him.

I watch as Reuben and Nate both enter a mind-link, their eyes glazing over in front of Noah and I. Subtle!

“Yes.” Nate answers, exiting the mind- link before Reuben.

“Evelyn, I’m sorry I kept it from you.

But I had my reasons as did Reuben and Noah. Please trust that we would never put the Silver Moon pack deliberately in a dangerous situation or damage your reputation.” Nate adds, his remorse clear.

“If we are to be a team, I can’t have things hidden from me. Otherwise I will start to act in a similar manner.”

“What the fuck does that mean?”

Reuben growls at me, his free clenched fist slamming down on my wooden round table.

“It means that you might be my mate Reuben and the father to my children, but be under no illusion I will act as an Alpha of the Silver Moon alliance even if it means going against what you have planned.”

I can’t even shift, I can’t burn off this anger that is eating away at me.

Noah was wisely keeping his head down at the hospital, whereas Reuben and Nate were camping out on the kitchen table with their laptops and maps.

I had kicked them out of my office, I couldn’t bare to be around either of them right now. I get it, but sometimes there is a better way to solve something than turning to violence.

The rogues could have been held off pack lands, could have been shown another way of life if that’s what they wanted. So many rogues were taken advantage.

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.
