The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 163 by Ebony Woods

Noah POV

We seemed to have settled into a good routine in the past week. Reuben was away at the Red Stone pack but had insisted on leaving Nate here to be his eyes and ears.

Which worried me slightly, what was he doing that Nate couldn’t sort out for him…

I hadn’t had a moment alone with Nate for the past week.

Between training, being at the hospital with Cassandra and spending time with the twins…mine and Nate’s paths hadn’t crossed.

Well not without Evelyn also being in the same room and without the mind- link between the two packs….I couldn’t discuss what happened at the Sickle Peak pack with Nate in the safety of our heads.

And judging by his secrecy and not even being honest with Reuben, he was most likely going out of his way to avoid me mentioning it to him.

Nate was staying at the alpha home still and I purposely arrived early this morning before training hoping to catch him whilst Evelyn and the kids were asleep.

My plan worked, he was alone in the kitchen staring out into the garden with a mug of steaming hot coffee in his hands.

“Nate….What happened?” I keep my voice low, checking over my shoulder to make sure we were in fact alone.

“What do you mean?” Nate looks at me dumbfoundedly…an act I’m sure. He full well has known that I’ve been meaning to ask him.

“You know what I mean. You lied to Reuben.” I give him a knowing look with my eyes over the top of my glasses.

“I didn’t lie…I just haven’t told him yet.” He responds a little too cooly for my liking. Was he just saying that to stop me asking?

“And will you?” I push.

“Tell him what?”

“That you didn’t burn the body. Because correct me if I am wrong but there was no fire that day in or near the Sickle Peak grounds. Not a fire big enough to burn a body anyway.”

“It’s Red Stone pack business…” He starts but I cut him off, my own wolf not appreciating his words.

“Bullshit, don’t give me that. Anything that happens to Red Stone now directly or indirectly involves Silver Moon and vice versa. What happened? Where is the body?” It takes all my strength to suppress my wolf in wanting to grab Nate by the collar and shake him. What was wrong with him.

“It’s gone.”

“Gone, gone where?”

“I don’t know, I can’t explain it. All I know is that Reuben doesn’t need to hear this shit right now. All his life he’s had to sacrifice happiness, I won’t let him do it this time. He deserves this time with Evelyn and the children. Just trust me when I say, Odin is dead and the body was….disposed of.” He now moves away from the kitchen french doors and moves to sit at the kitchen table.

“What of your warriors that were in the cave?”

“What of them?” He may have sat down but with one mention of the warriors, his back has stiffened.

“Some of them have been in the hospital having panic attacks or self medicating…what the fuck actually happened?”

“Drop it Noah, please. If my men are causing problems at the hosptail…”

What the hell was going on? This wasn’t like Nate, he usually was quite forthcoming with information regarding the security of the Silver Moon Alpha family.

Why was he being so….reluctant.

Because this did involve Evelyn. She was in the cave with Reuben. She watched Odin die.

“They aren’t causing problems, I’m concerned for them. This isn’t normal behaviour.” I shake my head, he wasn’t understanding my point.

I wasn’t throwing accusations in the air, I generally worried for their well- being.

For strong, well trained warriors… something had happened. They were showing signs close to post traumatic stress disorder.

“We are werewolves, what counts as normal behaviour? I appreciate your concern but I’m handling it. If anything comes back to bite me on this, which it won’t, then you’ll be the first to know. But Odin is dead and there is nothing more to it. So as far as Reuben is concerned, the body was burned.” His voice is firm, a warning for me to drop it.

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.
