It has been a few days since the drama with the vampire king, all those poor babies kidnapped for selfish gain. The guilt is still eating at me and I still have to deal with Cayden.
Taking the newborn pups was just unforgivable but my job is to protect the wolves and I thought it was more important to fix my life. Was I forgivable for the obvious negligence? Why would I even think it was important to focus on my life when even I know evil roams this world. I don't have the luxury to do that, not with what's happening out there in the world.
"Next week, I start school. First King's Academy they call it. From going to werewolf school to human school, to the heavenly realm for almost ten years to train and now I must go back for however long. I may not look like it but I'm almost thirty and nobody is taking that into account." I say to Xander, who's been keeping me on his lap since my return.
"Hey, am I interrupting? Anthony brought me here." Josey says as she walks into Xander's office.
I've been hiding out here most days because Xander is always in here, pretending to do some filing but I'm actually just trying to avoid everyone.
"No. Come in." I say in a whisper but she's a hybrid now so....
Josey sits down on one of the chairs opposite from me and Xander.
"So, Cayden...." I say and Josey shudders and not in a good way.
“I mean he is a very handsome man but the whole kidnapping nonsense was just ridiculous!" Josey says to me and I smile.
"Yeah, I am not listening to this." Xander says before placing me on my feet, kissing my cheek and walking out of the office.
I sit back down on his chair, giving Josey all my attention.
“I don't know. I feel like it was all too easy actually. I'm not sure if he made it easy so he would be my captive or he just wanted to father your children." I say.
The elders were still working on the amulet and it was clear there was dark magic surrounding it but they were not sure what Cayden would use it for.
“Well, I will not be giving him any sex so no. He must forget about it." Josey says to me and I just roll my eyes.
"Yeah I get it. Your mates would feel it and you made a commitment but something feels funny to me. I hate when my body senses something and can't tell me anything.” I say with great annoyance.
Since leaving Cayden with Evan, I've had a funny feeling. Like he surrendered too easily and it made me feel uneasy.
Why would a vampire king just surrender like that? Evan got hold of Cayden’'s sister, she agreed to a meeting later today.
In broad daylight!
This was getting more and more confusing.
I'm to meet her today and I asked Anthony to bring Josey here so we could go have this meeting with her.
“Anyway, what do you think about mom? I've been reading up on our family history and she wasn't exactly a saint. She was troubled and clearly that trouble followed her and now we are paying for it. Etihad hated mom for reasons I'm still looking in to." I say and Josey's eyes bulge out.
"So she took the moon goddess position out of revenge?" Josey asks me and I shake my head no.
"I think that was all greed but I mean it must have been sweeter to do that knowing she was doing it to our family." I say and Josey nods in agreement.
Ethia, the mess started there so her hatred for my family runs deep. Where did it even begin? Why did it have to get this far?
Her feud with my family caused trouble with my different mates, my life, Cayden's mother and so much more.
