I took off running as fast as I could, out the side door in the dining room and down the street, people were looking and giving me odd looks, some even calling out my name, but I couldn’t stop, I had to get away. I had no idea where I was going, I just kept moving, nothing looked vaguely familiar and I was hating myself for this memory problem.
I seemed to have these instincts telling me when to run and yet i couldn't figure out why, all these people know my name, but I didn't have a clue who they were. I still had no idea what Erik meant by 'what we are' and it felt as if someone was constantly scratching at my brain trying to unlock something or get out. I felt physically and mentally lost.
In front of me a forest was creeping up, getting taller and taller the closer I got. At the edge of the forest I momentarily stopped, checking behind me to see if anyone was following before quietly slipping into the forest, the sounds around me
Will’s POVI had to find Luna I wasn’t going to let this pack think she had slipped through my fingers again. I am fairly sure the pack hate me even if Alpha Erik says different, what kind of Beta am I if it happens for a second time.When Alpha Erik pulled me from my mind link with my wife and told me Luna had taken off, I suggested we split up to cover more ground. My instincts telling me to go to the edge of the forest where I found her the day she returned. Erik headed in the opposite direction, both of us contacting all the patrols telling them to stop Luna if she headed their way, I was shocked when Erik told them to use any means possible to stop her apart from killing her.As I arrived at the edge of the forest where I had first found her, her scent was strong and I knew she had been this way, stepping into the forest, I stripped off so I could shift into my wolf form without destroying more of my clothes. I knew I would be able to cover more
Alpha Erik's POVI cannot believe this is happening again, I shifted back to human form just before the edge of the forest, pulling on a pair of black joggers. We had clothes hidden all around the forest just in case we must shift and ruined the clothes we were wearing although it was rare until recently. I was not ready to show TJ my wolf form, not because I was ashamed, I just was not sure her brain would handle it, she was so fragile at the moment, nothing like the wolf I knew.Will was still in his wolf form as I walked towards them, my mates eyes were closed, I was unsure how much TJ had seen and the Fae would be hard enough to explain let alone the wolves. Her body looked lifeless, ordering Will to go shift in the forest, I crouched down over TJ, her wounds were already healing which was a good sign, leaving little red streaks all over her body.Lifting her body into my arms, I held her against my bare chest, she was cold and needed the warmth we gave off,
Alpha Erik’s POVAs I ran my thumb across her lip, I could feel her longing for me. I could take her right here….A knock on the door interrupted us and TJ fled back into the bathroom. I groaned, why did my pack insist on disrupting me at the most inconvenient times. “Just a second” I yelled. Silently banging my head against the bathroom door. She had felt it she finally felt our connection, clearly sleeping next to her all night helped. I pulled on a pair of shorts and yanked open the door.“What?” I had no patience for this crap today.Alpha Noah was stood on the other side with a smirk on his face “I wanted to surprise you myself”I had completely forgotten Noah was arriving from the rising moon pack “Am I interrupting something?” he asks me as a grin breaks out on his face.“No not at all, what time did you get here?” I ask, surprised that Will had not woken me.
TJ's POVThe hot water hitting my skin felt amazing and like i was experiencing it for the first time, grabbing the body wash I began to scrub my body, thoughts of yesterday seeping back into my head. I scrubbed myself hard trying to forget, I am sure it must have been a dream. As I continued to scrub an image of Erik appeared, his rock-hard naked body striding towards me, his warm breath on my face as he tilted my chin upwards to look at him and that gold glow around the iris's was so bright.Why did he make me feel like this, so many mixed emotions and yet the thought of his lips on mine put a smile on my face. I grabbed the shampoo and began working on my hair it was so matted and disgusting that my fingers kept catching knots. Erik’s image was soon replaced with one of a large white wolf standing over me, trying to push the image out of my head as I finished washing my hair was proving difficult, it must have been a dream right, wolves surely can't be that bi
Alpha Erik POVShit, shit, shit, TJ definitely has something against Hayley, I was so thankful that Noah managed to grab her in time, although the dining table will leave have a permanent reminder of her new hatred towards Hayley. Noah’s right though, she needs to know about our kind and needs to know now whether she liked it or not.Will walked in shortly followed by Sapphire, Sapphire observed the scene looking between Noah and I and then looking at TJ who was sat panting on the floor, the table was turned up on its side whilst chairs laid scattered everywhere.Sapphire offered a hand to TJ, helping her up and wrapping her arms around her, I watched silently as TJ’s body relaxed into Sapphire’s, tears streaming down her face, why could she not let me cuddle her like that.Noah and I righted the room whilst everyone sat down, I noticed TJ decided to sit between Sapphire and Will and could see she was still gripping Sapphire’s hand
Sapphire’s POV“Come on we’re going to be late” I was trying to rush Noah along but as usual he was messing around with the kids“Calm down babe, Erik won’t mind”“Well I want to go, I need to check out the rumour that’s going around” Noah could be so irritating at times, he has no sense of urgency and he really should as an Alpha and the future's greatest Alpha.“I’m on my way. What’s the rumour?” his voice was full of curiosity“She’s back!”Our mind link went quiet and I continued to load up the car “Why can you not just hurry up” I snapped as he walked around the corner to our new black SUV.He holds his hands up surrendering “Are you sure?” He asks not quite believing me.“Well it’s a rumour between the omegas, you know how one of them is mated to one of the Crimson Moon’s wa
TJ POV “SHIFT!” I could feel my own nostrils flaring, I was agitated and I needed too see it again, make sure it's not some weird magic trick they were all in on. It cannot be real, it just can't, these things are just in stories not real life. I turned away as Erik stripped off but he told me to look, I watched as this man slowly removed his clothes with a slight smirk on his face as I tried to keep my eyes on his as he became a huge black wolf making the bedroom feel tiny. His bright blue eyes looked at me curiously, they were the exact same as Erik’s but instead of a man a huge black wolf stood in front of me. The room went black, after what felt like an eternity, my vision came back and above me stood a very large black wolf with his head cocked to one side, scrambling out from beneath it, i ran to the otherside of the room trying to put some space between me and this huge beast. The wolf slowly padded towards me not taking his eyes off of
Alpha Erik’s POVThe screams jerked me awake, TJ was thrashing around on her side of the large bed, the words that were coming out of her mouth were unclear. I tried to shake her awake but there was nothing, whatever these nightmares are she is deep in them. I tried reaching out through the mind link to see if it would bring her back. Finally, her jade eyes opened, and she grabbed my hands pulling me towards her, after her heart rate returned to normal she climbed out of bed telling me she needed a shower and rushed into the bathroom.I knew it was going to be difficult to get TJ to talk to me, it hadn’t been easy so far to convince her of the truth. Surprisingly only asking her once made her come back out of the bathroom and she thrusted her hands in my face telling me she was chained. It was something I had already considered when she was in hospital, matching scars wrapped around her wrists the day she had turned up definitely suggested silver had been u
