The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 171 by Ebony Woods

Evelyn POV

I had woken up the next day feeling much more refreshed. Angel was asleep in his Moses basket next to the bed so I used the opportunity to have a shower. Before wanting to head downstairs in the hunt for food.

Turning the shower on, I feel the warm water cascade upon my body. Letting it wash away the remnants of child birth. Help to refresh my skin and hair.

As I wash my hair I feel a cold draft of air envelope me before hands wrap around my torso.

“You seem rested?” His husky voice nibbles at me ear.

“I feel amazing Reuben. I can start to feel my wolf’s strength returning. She’s been locked up for so long. As long as Angel is okay for a little while, I might take her out for a run later, it’s been so long for her. She needs it just as much as I do.” Actually she needs it more.

“As long as Nate can watch the children

“I’ll be fine on my own. I haven’t felt this good in months.” I really hadn’t. I felt like I had a spring in my step. My wolf needed to shift, for her own sanity as well as mine.

“Besides, I’d feel happier knowing you were holding Angel.” I continue, turning to help lather him up with body wash.

“You aren’t going on your own.” He disapproves and he’s right, I had just given birth.

“I’ll ask Nate to go with you.”

“That works.” I turn to smile at him. His eyes roaming my naked body.

“Three months Reuben…”

“To fall pregnant, not to start practicing. You’re the one lathering me up may I add.”

“You’re a sex beast…” I squeal as he grabs my ass and lifts me up, my legs wrapping around his waist.

“Yeah but I’m your sexy beast.” His lips crash into mine, all self control trying to evade me. However, a slight uncomfortable pain in my lower core informs me to take things a little slower.

“Give me two weeks before we start practicing again. Two weeks and I’m all yours, any way you’ll have me.”

“That is a deal, a deal you can’t break.”

Once I was dressed I head downstairs to find Nate overseeing the kids in the garden.

“Morning.” I call out to them all, Rex and Elspeth both waving at me.

The mornings were starting to warm up again, the early spring season still leaving crystallised wet dew on the grass. My wolf couldn’t wait for her paws to feel the wild ground beneath her.

“You look…well.”

“You sound surprised.” I chuckle at Nate.

“I thought you’d be recovering still.”

“I am, but it’s the first time in six months my wolf is feeling energised again…I’m taking her for a run. Did you want to come?”

“Too late Evelyn, Reuben has already gotten to me through the mind-link. But yes, of course I will come with you.”

I wait until Reuben is downstairs with Angel in his arms so that he can keep a close eye on the twins before heading out.

I walk with Nate out towards the back fields in our human form…wanting to shift and leave my clothes nearby for later.

The smooth transition of shifting into my wolf form seemed to instantly relax me. Like I’d been closed off from her for far too long.

I let her take the lead, letting her follow her senses for whatever she might want. To hunt, to run…I don’t care.

It was just nice to have her fully back again. Her energy going into keeping Angel safe and keep him growing inside of me. Now it was her time again.

Once she had completed covered herself in mud, turning her sandy brown fur into matted-drenched-in- dirt dark brown…she now seems keen to shift.

I haven’t got the ability to mind-link Nate but his wolf seems to understand that my direction was changing to return to our clothes.

He hasn’t left my side once. It was pretty safe here, no one would come onto these lands and if they did, they would most likely be human.

We were miles away from other pack lands which made the issue of schooling slightly difficult to figure out. Something for me to worry about in the coming year.

Once we return to the clothes, I shift back into my skin form and get dressed. Nate keeping guard as he looks out in the distance.

I was caked in dry mud and in bird feathers. My wolf seemed to enjoy chasing after a group of pigeons, her wheezy laugh even making Nate’s wolf join in.

Once Nate has changed I take a seat on the slight hilly grass mount, looking back at the new home in the distance.

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.
