The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 157 by Ebony Woods

Reuben POV

My hand was squeezing around his throat, my fingers holding the power to end his life.

“You don’t want this.” His voice barely audible, only just enough for me to hear him.

For him to die, oh yes this was years over due.

“You aren’t strong enough…” His eyes flare as I tighten my squeeze even more. What were these words, cheap party tricks? He was never an honourable alpha. He’ll do and say anything to survive.

As I continue to stare into his eyes, I blink thinking I am imagining things. A black shape darts across his pupil, for less than a second. I must have been seeing things, some kind of trickery of the light still shining off from my phone.

“Do it…I don’t want it anymore.” He growls at me in a low tone.

My wolf comes forward, a warning to proceed quickly. He knew as did I, that Odin was just trying to stall for time.

He’s never once allowed himself to appear as anything but strong and in control. Why now? Why show some kind of weakness, what was he playing at.

He can’t live, I know this in my heart. I hated him, but I wasn’t a monster like him. I wouldn’t kill someone without cause, for just a character clash.

No, he has always been a monster, for as long as I have known him.

I’m just grateful that Mum’s blood runs through my veins also.

He posed too much of a threat to the peace of our community. He has to go. There was no other way.

With a fast thrust, my hand punctures through his chest, pulling at his heart. My eyes remain on him the entire time, I need to make sure he actually passes, I won’t believe it unless I see if for myself.

I won’t take any chances, not when it comes to Evelyn and the children.

I take my time removing his heart, I want him to feel as much pain as possible. Call me vindictive but this man wasn’t the father he could have been. The father I will be.

Once his heart is disconnected from his body I dump it on the floor, his lifeless body falling to the ground.

How fitting to kill two alphas tonight in similar ways. Both cowards, both heartless…and now they are. Evelyn raises the Red Stone silver sword he used to take a swipe at her.

She stabs it through his heart, her own closure pushing at me through the bond. She’s been through so much, at the hands of Odin and Vicky.

I was already the Red Stone pack alpha and the king of the alliance, his departure from the pack happening years ago. So there was no alpha to alpha title passing at his death.

But I feel something click inside of me… some kind of feeling in the deep depths of my soul. Something I can’t explain.

“Reuben…are you ready?” Evelyn’s hand lands on my shoulder as she squeezes it gently with reassurance.

“Yes sweetheart…let’s get the fuck out of here.”

The threat to her life and my children’s was eliminated.

She would be more at peace knowing the man that would have mated with her by force to take both alliance is dead. The man that should have protected his own blood decided to try and use it to gain power again. He would have killed me, taken my mate and raised my son as a killing weapon, if he had kept him alive.

We walk out of the cave together, my hand not leaving her lower back once. He was dead but something still irked me about that cave. As if we weren’t alone.

“Nate…his body is in the cave. I didn’t want Evelyn to touch him…”

“Of course Alpha. I’ll fetch him now.”

My beta starts to walk into the cave, but I have a feeling that I don’t want him to be alone.

“Take men with you, don’t go in alone. No funeral…burn him.”

“Yes Alpha.”

I don’t know if I feel any happier knowing that Nate has warriors with him now…something felt off.

If Evelyn wasn’t with me I would stay, but I wanted to get her out of here, get her back to her 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.
