The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 161 by Ebony Woods

Pierce POV

“Alpha, news on the grape vine is that Odin is dead.” My beta enters my office, completely taking me by surprise at this piece of news.

“What? Have you verified it?”

“I can’t get hold of the Red Stone beta but it’s very rare that my source is wrong.”

“Cancel my meeting this afternoon, I’ll leave now. Do we know, are the alpha family at Red Stone or Silver Moons?” I was already grabbing my car keys, wallet and phone…just needing to confirm their location.

“Our intelligence has confirmed that Reuben has been at the Red Stone for a week now.”


“She’s remained at the Silver Moon pack with the children. Most of the Red Stone warriors also remaining. From my understanding, Reuben has journeyed alone.”

As soon as my beta confirms their location, I don’t wait. This piece of news was huge.

Huge for the werewolf community, for Reuben and Evelyn, and for…Libby.

Pain radiates through my body from the sheer thought of her. Mates weren’t supposed to be so far away from one another, not if there hasn’t been a rejection.

They aren’t meant to be apart, it weakens them both.

I’ve been struggling in her absence, my wolf’s anger going off the charts. He blames me for not marking her, for being too soft on her.

Perhaps he was right, perhaps I should have done things differently.

I journey immediately to the Red Stone pack, but am told Reuben is on border patrol check.

Odd because this would be the safest he and the Bright-Carmore family have been in a long time. Why was he on the check? His guards would be more than capable of securing the grounds.

I find him at the southerner border, on his own looking out at the distance. His posture is still that of the alpha king, his back straight, his head held high. But there was something about his shoulders that lead me to believe not all was well.

He doesn’t turn on my gathering closeness.

Taking me completely by surprise as he takes a swing for me when I clap my hand on his upper back.

I duck out of the way, he hadn’t even noticed my approach. Which for an Alpha was concerning.

“You okay my brother?”

“What the fuck are you playing at? I could have broken those pretty teeth of yours.”

“I heard about Odin, I came to check on you and the kids.”

“They are back at Silver Moon, I came alone.” He answers looking back out to the woods in the distance.

“And?” Something was definitely up, he was on edge.

“And what?”

“Fuck man, are they okay?”

“Yes, yes they are fine.”

“What’s with the short answers…”

“I’m not being short…”

“Look, I just wanted to make sure you were okay. I know you didn’t get on with Odin but he was still…”

“He hadn’t been my father since I was taller than him. He wasn’t like your Dad Pierce, I feel nothing. Relief if anything.”

He enters a mind-link, his eyes glazing over as he cuts off our communication.

“I have to head back to the alpha home, I’ve got a meeting.”

“I’ll walk with you.” Something definitely wasn’t sitting well with me about his behaviour. Even my wolf picking up on a level of change.

As we reach the alpha home, I see a young lad leaning against Reuben’s red sports car.

Does he have a death wish?

He’s dressed in complete black….black jeans, black v neck T-shirt, black trainers and black sunglasses.

I’m waiting for Reuben to introduce this kid to me, but he seems unwilling to do so.

“Alpha Pierce…” I place my hand out to the kid to shake, which he does. A very firm handshake for a young man.

“A pleasure Alpha…” He seems to be just as cagey as Reuben. He also seems reluctant to share his name.

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.
