The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 166 by Ebony Woods

But there were some occasions when I had to wake them both up last week to find Elspeth had crept into Rex’s room in the middle of the night. She still sought him out in her sleep. Wanting to be near her twin brother.

“Daddy?” Elspeth shouts out to Reuben, her bottom lip poking out as he doesn’t respond.

“I’m sure he’ll be back soon enough.” I respond to her, ushering her upstairs to put her bits in her bedroom. I’m not sure where he has gone, his car is parked out at the front of the house.

I walk into the kitchen, which was open planned with a large dining table and an inglenook. Solid oak wooden beams vertically filled the dining area, adding a sense of strength to the open room.

When we designed the house, we kept in mind that when people visited they would be staying for at least a night and therefore we needed to have the room to entertain. And enough bedrooms to house guests.

Our new house had eight bedrooms with an out building that had an extra four bedrooms. It was a big house, but Reuben seemed keen to fill it with children. I’m not so sure on that, I keep telling him to wait on how this birth goes before we start talking about the next one.

Picking up the kettle, I walk with it over to the sink and fill it up with water. As I do so, I look out into the back garden and on to our back lands where a large marquee has been erected. What on earth?

“Rex…Elspeth…I’m just going into the garden.” I call up to them, but they both run down stairs instantly. The garden was their favourite place to be. We had installed a large wooden play equipment which had a tree house for Rex and a playhouse for Elspeth. Ropes, ladders, swings…Reuben really went to town on the thing.

They open the back door, heading out before me. Already bouncing on the ground built-in trampoline by the time I reach the back gate. I head on to the marquee to find cars littering the back field and music playing from the large white tent.

As I approach I can hear hushes…really? They think they can jump out on an alpha? A pregnant Alpha?

“You best act surprised Mummy…” Elspeth whispers now by my side.

“Yes, Dad has been planning this for the last month.” Rex also joins in on the whispering.

Entering the marquee…everyone shouts out surprise. I try to look shocked but I was too long in the pregnancy to care anymore about how my reactions were perceived. This baby needed to come out. I was struggling with my walking, as well as my sleeping at night.

“You could have tried harder to looked surprised…” Reuben smirks as he wraps his arms from behind around my rather large belly, planting a kiss on my mate mark. Tingles forcing me to sigh with adoration.

“This is a surprise…thank you.”

“Hmm..” He keeps his arms wrapped around me, breathing in my scent. That was one thing I missed with the twins, Reuben’s constant reassuring presence this late on in pregnancy. Even just his scent calmed me and my wolf down.

“Everyone is here…” He moans through the mind-link.

“Everyone?” I chuckle back, too bad. He shouldn’t have invited everyone.

“Yes, everyone.” His eyes give me a knowing look as I feel annoyance flitter through the mate bond from him.

I understand what he means. Candice, bless her, runs right up to me and pulls me into her arms. I

t doesn’t take her long before she pulls me away from my mate and starts updating me with her own baby that was sleeping in her arms and Blue Moon pack udpates.

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.
