The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 22 by Ebony Woods

Hours before…..

Evelyn POV

I hadn’t responded to the Red Stone Pack’s request, for the Silver Moon alpha to return myself. He could go to hell for all I cared. Trying to use a contract that no longer existed since he killed my parents, was beyond unbelievable!

Noah was quieter than usual, he was worried about me. About how I had carried so much hatred. for so long, plotting this revenge and then the moment Reuben was in front of me….I couldn’t do it. I wasn’t him! I wasn’t a murdering monster.

One day when my children ask me what happened to their grandparents I will be able to tell them the truth with an innocent soul. Not tainted, or dark like his.

I thought he would have sent men by now to challenge the alpha. As a precaution, I had my warriors on high alert on the borders, some even pulling double shifts. They were tired, we all


Today would be the first day I began loosening security around the pack borders and members were now free to come and go as they please. But were told to remain vigilant at all times.

Rex had been on at me for days to go see a movie in the nearest cinema. His exact words were, “all

I watch are princess movies, sometimes a boy needs action and violence.”

It was a film about superhero pets, not exactly the action and violence he wanted but he was excited and Elspeth did get her own way a lot of the time. Which he completely enabled.

I decided to take him today, to give him a bit of one-on-one time. I’d be taking warriors of course


“Mum, what time do we need to leave?” He asks as he draws on some paper on the kitchen table.

“In around thirty minutes. It gives us time to buy some popcorn too.” I wink at him.

I hadn’t had popcorn in years. I think I was more excited than him. It would feel good to forget my current worries for ninety minutes in a cinema completely submerging myself into the film with


“Evelyn, the equipment for the ante natal unit has arrived!” Noah walks into the kitchen, tapping Rex affectionately on the head as he walks past him.

“The delivery company need you to sign if off before they leave.” He adds.

We were careful where we ordered from, keeping ours and the wider shifter community hidden on the doorstep of the human world.

“I’m just off out with Rex, can you not sign it. You’ll understand any medical terminology better

than me.”

“Evelyn it’s a machine, it has electrics and electronics….I’m a doctor not an engineering person. Besides I can’t sign off the money, that’s all you!” He teases as he joins me behind the kitchen counter and moves me slightly to the right away from the drawer he wants access to. In moving

the touches my waist which earns a very small growl from Rex Completely inaudible to Noah

but I caught it

“Fine I’ll sign this off Rex and we will get going”

“We will be late. “He moans already like a teenager, was I certain he was only four?

“We won’t but look you go with some of the warriors and pick out the snacks. I’ll be fifteen minutes behind you.” I offer as I take a twenty out of my pocket and wave it at him.

“Tell the men I’ll be waiting by the car. Thanks Mum” He adds as he walks over to me and whips the note form out of my grasp. He heads out of the house and towards the black alpha SUV parked

out front.

I mind-link three of my warriors to instruct that they journey ahead and I will follow after I have checked this delivery.

I had quality checked the delivery with Noah and now approved for the payment to reach them I had spent years negotiating with this human company to ensure we received the best equipment and were always informed first of new products being manufactured

It’s what made the Silver Moon pack alliance intriguing to other packs and helped to open up communication for the alliance.

The only problem with using a human company was when it came down to delivery. I had to pay a retainer for the same drivers every time and they had been security vetted by their own company and also myself. I’m not sure what they thought we were but we went down the lines of a gated community.

“Perfect, now that’s done I need to catch up with Rex. Are you okay to watch Elspeth, she’s with Miss Smith?” I ask Noah who was heading back to the Alpha house with me. I needed to use one of the warrior SUV’s and was headed to find Donnie for the keys.

“I don’t need an excuse to watch Elspeth Evelyn…” Noah chuckles as we reach the front of the house.

“Ah Donnie, can you drive Alpha to the cinema to meet Rex. Two of our warriors are there already so you can come straight back.” Noah asks as Donnie walks towards us.

“Yes Beta!” Donnie nods as he spins on the spot and walks back into the direction he came from to get a vehicle.

“How are Beatrice and Harry?” I ask Donnie as he drives us out of the pack grounds.

“They are good Alpha….in fact it isn’t official yet but Beatrice is pregnant.” He smiles at me, as he checks the road we are turning into.

“That’s great news, congratulations. How is she feeling?”

“She’s struggled this time. Lots of sickness.”

“You should have said Donnie, I would have reduced your night watch shifts and made her some food to help with the nausea and tiredness.” I had pushed my warriors hard recently to keep us safe and they all started to show the signs of exhaustion.

“I’m happy to do it Alpha, happy to play my part.”

“I know you are Donnie!”

We drive for a short while until we reach a short traffic jam.

“You might be a few minutes late Alpha!” Donnie says as he starts to call the mobile number of

one of his warriors.

“It shouldn’t be this busy for a week day.” I sit back in the chair slightly before watching the driver in the car ahead step out of his vehicle and look ahead of him.

“What’s going on?”

“I’m not sure, probably a lorry blocking the road, let me have a look.” He offers as he steps out of the driver’s seat and closes the door behind him.

He walks to the man ahead of us and chats briefly to him until the man points at something in the distance. Donnie starts to walk away and I can no longer see him.

I step out of the vehicle and stand up on the slight door base that grants just enough space to use as a step. I can now see over the roof of the car in front to an awful sight ahead of me. An overturned vehicle.

“Alpha!” Donnie’s voice roars in my mind, making me flinch slightly from the volume.

“Quick it’s our car!”

“What?” I shout back, exiting the vehicle and running towards Donnie.

Sweet goddess no! It was the black SUV that Rex left in.

“Rex?” I scream as I run towards the vehicle to find two of my warriors dead, laying half out of the overturned car. They each had a bullet wound to their head.

“Rex?” I scream again as I drop to the ground to search the back seat for Rex.

“He isn’t here? Where is he?” I search the side of the road beside the car, seeing if he had made it out but collapsed somewhere.

“Alpha…Alpha?” Donnie tries to gain my attention as I start to panic for Rex. Where was he?


“What?” I half wail, a mother desperate to hold her baby boy. A mother trembling with fear.

“There’s a note.” He pulls out a note from one of our warriors front pockets.

“Hey, I wouldn’t touch that….police forensics…” An innocent bystander comments but cuts off by my monstrous glare.

“Shut down the alliance or the boy dies.” Donnie reads out into my mind.

“What?” I snatch the note from him and I can’t believe what I am reading. He reaches into his

pocket and pulls out his phone, calling Noah.

Why would anyone do this, why would anyone take my sweet little boy? What has he ever done to anybody.

“Alpha, our men are on the way…but so are the police.” Donnie states as he cuts his call on his


“You need to leave….” He tries to pull me away.

“No! I’m not going anywhere!” I release my aura onto him. I notice in my peripheral vision the humans take a step back, uncertain why their minds have forced this movement.

He wouldn’t would he? He wouldn’t take a child? He wouldn’t be so cruel, so evil?

As time passedmore guests arrived to give their congratulations. The entire venue was filled with people. A famous entertainer was also putting on a performance on the main stage. Below, the guests were talking and laughing over some wine. “Dahlia, this is a nice place. You would be the owner in the future, right?” Florence glanced around, thrilled. “Mom, I’m just partners with the Harmon family. I’m merely a secondary stakeholder even if we established a company together,” Dahlia explained. “That’s good enough. Once we get on the same boat with the Harmon family, we won’t have to worry in the future!” Florence was delighted. “Sis! Your career is booming right now. You must have made a lot of money, right? When are you getting me a nice car?” James smiled flatteringly beside her. “I give you quite a lot of pocket money every month. Is it not enough?” Dahlia asked unhappily. She did not like giving handouts, even to her own brother. “It used to be enough. But I’ve invested all my savings into Nolan Pharmaceuticals, so now I’m broke,” James said exasperatedly. “Then you just sit and wait for the dividends,” Dahlia said dismissively. As she turned around, she caught sight of Dustin and Natasha out of the corner of her eye. “You invited Dustin here? What a downer!” James followed her line of view and frowned. “I didn’t,” Dahlia denied flatly. “He came without any invitationThat’s so shameless!” James grimaced. Then hist gaze landed on Natasha, and he immediately perked up. “Hey, who’s that beauty next to him? She’s stunning!” “What beauty? She’s vixen!” Florence continued rather calmly, “She was the one causing trouble at the Jackson Groupand I nearly slapped her!” “It was her?” James‘ tone turned cold, and he spat, “Shit! Dustin is so heartless. How dare he bring this bitch to such an important occasion today? He’s such an eyesore!” “LookDahlia, he’s finally revealed his true colors. It’s a shame. You were so nice to him, yet he’s so ungrateful, and even tried to ruin this occasion. I have to teach him a lesson today!” As she spoke, Florence got ready to confront him “Mom! Today is the opening ceremony, don’t cause any trouble!” Dahlia quickly grabbed her mother. She knew once her mother started making a scene, it would not end well. “Hmph! I’ll let him get away with it this time!” Although Florence was very upset, she tried to calm herself down. No matter what, she couldn’t embarrass her own daughter. “Dahlia, you’re here?” Chris brought Jeff and walked over with a smile. “Here, I want to introduce you to someone.” “This is Mr. Anderson’s son, Jeff!” Chris stretched out his hand as if he was presenting something valuable. “So, you’re Jeff Anderson? It’s a great pleasure to meet you!” James immediately tried. to curry favor with him. This was Swinton’s most distinguished elite, and he had at much more respected status than him. “I didn’t expect you to come, Mr. Anderson! The Nicholson family is honored!” Florence was smiling broadly. Needless to say, Mr. Anderson’s son had to be some big shot. “Nice to meet you, Jeff.” Dahlia smiled and greeted him warmly. “You must be Ms. Nicholson. It seems the rumors are true, you’re really stunning!” Although he had never met Dahlia, he had heard of her. She was one of the Four Beauties in Swinton and a rising star.
