Daphne’s Point of View
After the altercation with Heather I had cleaned up the dining room. I carefully avoided all contact with not only my pack, but the visiting pack members as well. As soon as I had the dining room cleaned up, I washed up the dishes and retreated to my room. Everyone else was busy worrying about the visiting pack. I just wanted to disappear.
The next morning my throat was still sore and a little scratchy from where Heather had choked me. Checking the mirror, I can see that the bruises were already fading from sight. Since I love to shift every morning and go for a run my healing abilities are pretty good. Being a werewolf means that we heal relatively quickly, but if you do not regularly shift your healing abilities can be hindered.
Heading out the back door I was extra careful to be quiet this morning. Since we are rarely visited by other packs I do not know if th
Caleb’s Point of ViewI take my time returning to my clothes. My mind keeps returning to the wolf girl I seen at the river. I know every wolf in my pack, including the pups. She did not belong to my pack, and she is not a rogue so she must belong to the Silver Moon pack. I am smiling as I shift back into my human form and throw my sweatpants and shoes back on. I can not wait to speak to Theo.Bounding back up to the second floor of the manor I am glad that me and Theo are roomed right next to each other. I do not even knock on his door; I just burst in and find that he is in the adjoining shower. I am pacing back and forth in his room trying to be patient as he finishes. For a moment I considered mind linking him and telling him to hurry up. Even my wolf is anxious to share the encounter with the beautiful wolf girl in the woods. Finally, I hear the shower turn off
Daphne’s Point of ViewI was nervous throughout most of the morning, scared that my secret about shifting would be exposed. I calmed down throughout the day though as it continued to be basically normal. Breakfast was bigger than usual because of the visiting pack. The Alpha decided that I was too clumsy to serve out our guests, so he ordered some of the Omegas of our pack to serve out the meal. I was sent over to the hall to ensure that it was clean for the decorations to be set up and the caters to arrive. I hated being dismissed before breakfast was over because now, I could not eat any of the left-over food. Oh well I thought it is not the first time I have gone without food.As I was walking to the meeting hall, I noticed that the pack was out and about. Clearly everyone was excited about the ball tonight. I watched mothers taking their daughters to get their hair done and I felt the familiar ache of wish
Caleb’s Point of ViewCuriosity was getting the better of me, I needed to know who that wolf girl was that I seen this morning. I simply could not get her off my mind. Theo tried to distract me by going over next weeks training schedule, but my heart and mind were not in it. Finally, he gave up and asked me if I wanted to walk around this pack’s territory. I readily agreed, which lead him to teasing me about possibly running into a certain girl.Simply being outside relaxed my muscles and put a smile on my face. Looking around I noticed that the Silver Moon pack had done a great job in the way they had structured their buildings. The Manor House was center but towards the back giving the inhabitants a great view of the woods. Their meeting hall was off to the left, with an array of small shops surrounding it. The pack members houses were spread along the north side of the town, and beyond those were the
Theo’s Point of ViewI am very good at gathering information from people and computers. I became sort of an investigator after my mate passed away. My dear sweet Miranda, death took her way too soon from my arms. Miranda had been involved in a car accident year before last. It was eastern Oregon in January; roads were slick, and we eventually found her jeep flipped over in a ditch off the highway. Police initially tried to say that they believed that she had hit an animal, but I personally went to the scene and scented no other animal near her.The front end of jeep was smashed in from where she had hit the ditch, but no one could explain why the back end of her jeep was smashed in. I also pointed out that there seemed to be a paint transfer, her jeep was white, the transfer paint was blue in color. I almost lost my mind arguing with the police and the detectives because I needed to know what had happened to t
Caleb’s Point of ViewAfter sending Theo out on the task of finding out who the young mystery lady was, I continued to stroll a little through the town. My wolf was begging me to go for another run before the ball tonight, but I knew that I needed to be present when the other two packs arrived. I knew one of the two packs that would be attending, the Crest Line pack. I was looking forward to seeing Marcus, the Alpha again. Rumor has it that he has found his mate and I am eager to find out if it is true.As if fate were reading my thoughts, I could hear the scouts informing some of the closer wolves that there is a pack approaching. I turn and head back to the manor house to greet the guests. As I draw near, I see that Alpha Jason, and Luna Amanda are already outside waiting at the top of the steps. I step next to Alpha Jason hoping that it is the Crest Line pack that is headed in. Just as the first wolves step
Daphne’s Point of ViewSo far today I had done a great job staying out of everyone’s way and avoiding any conflict. After leaving the meeting hall I retreated to my room, but on the back stairs once again was that smell. I was intrigued, but I know that if I went snooping there was a great risk of getting punished. Today was one of the rare days that no one has hit me so far. I desperately wanted to pull out my book and read a few chapters, but the house was still bustling with people getting ready and more people arriving. I was too afraid that someone would catch me, and then they would take my book.I peaked out my window and watched the Mission pack arrive. I knew Alpha Jerome, and his Luna. They had visited our pack before. At one point I know that Alpha Jerome had hoped that my sister Scarlet was his son’s mate. To his disappointment they were not; however, one of his best warriors found his
Caleb’s Point of ViewI was pacing around my room, waiting for Theo to come back and let me know if Alpha Jason had agreed to a sit down. I wanted this business to be over quickly, and I am sure that I can persuade them to sell the slave girl. I have already decided that even if I find my mate tonight, that my pack will be leaving early tomorrow morning. Like Theo I do not like being around a pack that owns slaves. I am also having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that the Alpha and Luna were so blinded by grief that they condemned their daughter to servitude. My parents were loving parents. My father was patient with me, and even though he was the Alpha he always spent adequate time with me. I remember when I was about four, I snuck into the training grounds where my father was training our warriors. He immediately spotted me, and I expected to be tol
Daphne’s Point of ViewI was in the middle of wiping down my bathroom sink when my door burst open. My heart instantly sank as I noticed it was Beta Noah, and the man I had seen downstairs at my door. Keeping my eyes to the floor so that I would not offend anyone, I walked out of the bathroom and waited for order.“You are to come down to the Alpha’s study immediately. I will escort you there.” Beta Noah barked out. I started shivering, thinking that I must have done something to offend the visiting Alpha since his Beta was here with Noah as well. Walking out of my room I tried to replay every movement I have made since the Alpha arrived. Other than watching him greet the Mission pack I do not ever recall even seeing him. My palms are sweating, and my stomach is in knots trying to figure out how I could have offended the Alpha.As we make it to the first floor it dawn
