The Legacy of the Alpha King: Hiding his Secret Twins Chapter 39 by Ebony Woods

Evelyn POV

Deep breath in, deep breath out. “Look at me that way all you want sweetheart, but him being alive puts Rex in even more danger.”

“Stop calling me sweetheart!” I growl. “Where are your men?” Pierce asks us both to cut the tension between Reuben and myself. Reuben pockets the phone, as the dead man’s body laid on the woodland floor.

“Donnie is waiting for my orders. They were set on the pub.” I answer, turning my back to Reuben, as he disrespectfully goes through the man’s pockets.

“Okay, let’s make our way over to them. Reuben… What are you doing?”

Pierce rolls his eyes at Reuben with a large sigh.

“Looking for clues, I’ve already got his phone. The caller didn’t want to talk, but that’s fine my men can hack the phone for information. They’re going to wish they never made that phone call.”

“The pub, Reuben, that’s our destination yes?” Pierce presses for a decision from the two of us and with a simple nod, Reuben agrees on our next step.

We kept to the shadows of the trees, making sure we weren’t seen, especially not the humans who would find our movement very strange.

“Donnie where are you?” I push on the mind-link between us and he answers quickly.

“Just behind the bus shelter, in the graveyard.” “They’re in the graveyard.” I whisper to Pierce who was in the front and Reuben to my rear.

We paused for a moment to reassess the situation. The graveyard offered a good level of hiding space due to the grave stones and overgrown bushes.

There was no movement outside of the pub and the windows were covered, meaning we couldn’t see in.

If Rex was older l’d be able to mind- link him, to let him know I was so close and that I wouldn’t be leaving without him.

I’m coming my darling, the Moon Goddess will offer you her protection until you are safe in my arms. Please moon goddess deliver my son safely back to me.

We make our way, very carefully,

towards the graveyard where we find

Donnie and Nate crouched down behind a part of the church that offers a good view of the pub ahead.

“How many inside?” Reuben crouches down in-between Nate and Donnie.

“We aren’t certain for definite but we think at least two.” Nate answers looking to Donnie who nods in agreement.

“Best way into the pub?” I ask, when all four males look at me. Their faces not hiding their hesitation.

“What?” I moan in a whisper.

“You can’t be serious?” Reuben growls at me. I was getting irritated with Reuben thinking he ran the show here.

“Deadly. I’m going in there.” I lift my chin up and widen my eyes at him.

“No you aren’t.”

“He’s s my son Reuben.” “Don’t give me that shit Evelyn. Are you trained like me? No. Can you kill like me? No. You are staying here.” He tries to command. I go to stand but he . pushes me down at my shoulders.

“Get your hands off me.” I all but roar, as much as I can in a whispered tone. He takes a deep breath in, as is trying to calm his frustration.

“You’re maternal need to get him out could get him killed and even yourself. I promise I’ll get him out safely and unscratched.” His hands are still on my shoulders but they aren’t firmly pushing me down now, they are just resting there.

His eyes are searching into mine, looking deeply into my soul. A plea to trust him, to trust him with our son’s life. My wolf fights me, telling me to trust him, to give him a chance.

“Just don’t kill anyone unnecessarily.” I sigh, letting him lead the mission.

“Nate, you go around the back! I’ll take the front.”

“I can help?” Pierce offers but is turned down by Reuben’s shaking head.

“I’m forever grateful for your help this far, but I need to be able to communicate with Nate through the mind-link so we can do this quickly. Any bit of a noise, then they’ll be spooked and might act out in fear.”

Reuben pov.

Evelyn makes a movement to follow me but I have to remind her that she isn’t coming. She could act out irresponsibly once we found Rex.

Goddess knows what kind of state he is in, where he is being held in the pub and if he is even conscious. I know it is hard for her, but she needs to stay back if we have a chance in getting him out alive.

There was also that feeling in my chest that kept coming back to me, what if she got hurt again.

“Ready?” I mind-link Nate as we set out through the graveyard, remaining covered by the gravestones and bushes.

“Once we reach the bus stop, we’ll have to act fast. It’s too open.” I order as we hide in the last covered spot before the openness of the road ahead.

“I understand Alpha.” Nate responds. He knew his orders and I knew my target, to get Rex back into the arms of his mother.

I give the signal to Nate for us to move. We were both fast, racing across the road without being seen.

Nate makes his way to the back of the pub where I head to the front entrance.

Keeping low, I push on the door to find it is locked from inside. Using my elbow I break the glass and reach inside to unlock the security locks.

As I push the door open and step inside, 1 step over the scattered glass covering the damp carpet that had a strong old beer and cigarette stench to it. This pub hasn’t been open in a very long time.

Whenever it closed, it must have been in a hurry. Spirit bottles still decorated the bar area and I’m surprised human kids haven’t broken in to help themselves to a free night out.

I creep on through the front bar area, making sure I remain low and quiet.

“Nate, you in?” I push on his mind through the pack-link.

“Just, had to climb through a small window. It stinks in here….” I cut his link when I hear movement coming down some stairs somewhere. A male walks behind the bar and grabs a bottle of vodka straight from the dispenser. He was short for a werewolf… and plump around the belly. He hadn’t. trained in a while and was no match for me.


He shrieks from my greeting, and soon his panic deepens as I walk out from my dark hiding place so that he could see my full frame.

I stretch out my shoulders and crack my neck, it always seemed threatening when I did that.

“Who are you?” His quivering voice replies, if I could see him fully, I’d say he had wet himself.

“I’m the Alpha King..who are you?”

Nate slowly walks up behind the man, blocking off his escape back up stairs or out through the back. He turns to look behind him, to find my beta smirking, having cut off his escape route.

“He’s got a gun.” Nate’s voice enters my mind in an unnecessary warning.

This dick is a coward, he pulls a gun out from his lower back. A true werewolf male fights with the hands or paws that the Moon Goddess gave him.

“What are you doing?” I don’t even hold back my annoyance in him using a human method to get out of a tricky situation.

His hand is pointing the gun at me, at my chest. It won’t do any damage, it’s a bullet and I’m the fucking Alpha King.

I roar, unleashing my full aura on to him. His hand holding the gun, starts to tremble and I actually think he has now pissed himself.

“Are you going to shoot me?” I quirk an eyebrow at him before taking a few steps forward. The gun now touching my toned peck by my heart.

I wanted to rip his fucking heart out but Evelyn’s voice was ringing in my head… don’t kill him. What was she now some kind of newly found conscious sitting on my shoulder.

I don’t kill him, if anything just to shut her voice up that’s in my head. But I do take him out. One hit to his temple does the job and he falls to the floor, landing on old broken glass.

“You didn’t kill him, that’s unlike you?” Nate scoffs through the mind- link.

“Piss off, he’ll be answering questions when he’s awake again. Any one else?”

“No down here, but I’ll check the cellar.” He walks away and I watch him enter the cellar door.I step over the prick on the floor before taking the first step on the stairs.

I take another step and cringe

internally when the floorboard creeks under my weight. Fuck, our presence was already no longer a surprise, now my ascending up was heard. I need to act fast and decisive.

Whatever was upstairs, whatever state Rex was in. I had to keep emotions from out of situation in order to keep him safe. I continue my climb up the stairs, mentally preparing myself to get the job done.

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.
