Dark, gloomy, bitterly cold, and deafeningly silent. That was the usual mood in the Crimson Blood Pack's huge mansion. A group of wolves that live underground.
The creatures here haven't even experienced even once taking a glance at the full form of the sun, the moon, or even the whole world. Why? because they were thousands of feet above them.
They were clueless that there was a passageway to the surface. They didn't even know that the passage could be hard and that they would have to get past many obstacles.
So, first they had to learn that there was an escape route from where their clan had resided for centuries.
"Could you please wait for me, Killian? One day you will see once I grow up like the other girls around you. I'll save myself all for you, which means you'll have to wait for me. Huh? Promised. "I looked at our alpha's daughter as I stroked her hair and smiled at her sweetly. The small child frowned.
We were in my hidden place. In fact, I wasn't aware that she was following me. I was the son of Zeta, one of the four war generals of the Crimson Blood Pack. In the event of a fight, my father received direct orders from the Alpha. While the Alpha can declare war, the Zeta commands the army and plans the war. They also prepare candidates for the future as Eta, Eta, or more.
"Do you think I was joking? Or did you think it was a joke because I was ten years younger than you? "
I awoke from long thought when the little child's feet tramped on the ground. I seem to irritate her quite a bit.
"Hahaha, of course, no Serena, I'm just thinking I'm the only Zeta son in our pack. Do you adore me so much, Serena? What if you meet your match someday? You must tell your vows to your soon-to-be mate, not to an ordinary wolf like me.
The little girl, at seven years old, looked at me seriously. I can't help but smile. Her beauty can be seen from a young age, and she will undoubtedly become more beautiful as she grows.
Her emerald green eyes shone in the sunlight. Both her rosy cheeks and lips were flawless.
The question, however, is whether she will still like me when she turns eighteen.
I close my eyes as a sharp pain hits my chest.
"What's happening to you, Killian?" I opened my eyes and saw the worried look on the little girl's face. I wish I had the right to stare into those green eyes every day, but I'm aware I don't have the right to.
I examined my canvas. I painted the landscape. This is the only place I love in this dark place. And with that little kid inside, it seems perfect.
Serena constantly expressed her admiration for me and her wish that when she grew up, I would become her husband. I brushed it aside. Not only was she too young, but she was also the Alpha's daughter. Of course, our leader would rather want her daughter to marry a man her own age, or at least his mate, than a simple man like me.
I take a deep breath. What was I thinking? Why should I compare myself to this little girl's future husband? I care for little kids who are ten years younger than me.
As a result of my shame, I immediately collected all my scattered belongings. What on earth was I thinking?
"Serena, your father was probably looking for you."
The little child took my hands in hers and there it was again, the chest pain.
Why do I keep feeling pain when this little kid is around?
I shook my head and pretended not to feel the pain.
Until we reach the palace.
"Where the hell have you taken my daughter, young man?"
I jumped in surprise when the Alpha exclaimed, "He wasn't far from us." I pushed the girl in front of the alpha.
I stutter as I close my eyes. I can't find the words to tell him that his daughter followed me. How was I supposed to convince him that I hadn't stolen Serena and that she had followed me without my knowledge? He would no doubt tell me, I'm so weak I don't even notice his daughter. I take a deep breath...
Don't get mad at Kilian's father. He didn't make me go with him. I was the one who followed him down. I was curious about where he would go with his collection of paintings, and besides, he would be my future husband. I need to know what he was up to! "
My eyes widened as I processed what I had just heard. My head shook.
She didn't say that, did she? She shouldn't have said it that way! She could not ...
The Alpha approached us with his daughter. I'm still stunned at his seriousness, and I swallow hard as he stares at me.
"What are you trying to say, little one... about him being your future husband?"
The Alpha asked, while his stern gaze was still fixed on me.
I'm dead, I thought inside my head.
I had no idea Serena would say it out loud considering how many times she has said it when she secretly sees me, like when she was sitting across from me when my dad had a meeting with the Alpha, or she saw me in one of the quiet spots.
I'm not sure how a little seventeen-year-old could say that to a seventeen-year-old boy and think that she was seven.
"Are you thinking of marrying our son, Zeta Serena?" The Alpha asked, and his daughter nodded.
And what Serena said made me want to pass out.
"I tell him to wait for me until I grow up."
"Do you like Killian that much, my princess?" Serena nodded in response to the Alpha's question."If that is so, he will now serve as your personal bodyguard. Do you hear me, Killian? First of all, I would like to entrust you with the responsibility of protecting my princess in any way you can.
My eyes widened in shock. From that day on, I was Serena's personal guard. He wasn't sure if that was good or bad back then. He doesn't have a choice. That was her Alpha's command.
"Serena" I looked around to see if anyone had been nearby who would have been able to apprehend me if I had stolen my father's horse, but there was no one there, not even my obnoxious guard, Killian. I regret informing my father about my young obsession with him, because he literally saved my life. Yet, a seventeen-year-old handsome kid that I was obsessively following at the time grew up to be a freaking deity, and a slew of girls pursued Killian. However, I was the one the guy was tailing, and much to my chagrin, he wasn't pursuing me because he liked me or anything like that. He simply followed what my father instructed him to do, nothing more, nothing less. Even if I were a princess, he continued repeating that. When I was younger, I usually cried because it was so awful, but as I grew older, I came to despise him as well. I keep pleading with my father to rescind his decisi
"Killian" How do I improve my patience and conceal all my sentiments and emotions after 10 years as Serena's personal guard? I couldn't have that. That is not permissible for a zeta. My father often tells me that I will inherit his estate. I shall be his heir, the one who will lead the crimson blood pack soldiers. I need to develop the ability to conceal my feelings. I'll admit that there were times when I faltered...the sole reason for this was this brat girl who constantly evaded my protection. How many times have I warned her not to leave the manor grounds? Nonetheless, a hard-headed person would remain that way indefinitely. I inhaled deeply. I was considering how much better it would be to come to the war zone than to be a guard for this obnoxious princess. I close my eyes in order to keep my temper in check. Nonetheless, as I ope
Narrator" Several years ago The alpha's chamber door was ajar. Kevin, the pack's zeta, dashed to tell the alpha that a large number of rebellious residents had gathered to rally. They suggested devising a way for us to ascend. The reason was that our land was slowly deteriorating and if we did not discover a method to climb back up, our next generation would perish from starvation. Their primary supply of food was dwindling. He was eager to inform the alpha. Nonetheless, he comes to a halt when he overhears someone speaking. It is not in his nature to simply listen in on anyone's chat. This, however, is an exception. "Salazar, what was this? What was the point of this map? Do not deceive me. I am not a fool. I can see plainly that it was a map for fleeing this location. There was a map that indicated how to get to the top and what and how to live above. Why have you concealed this information?" That was the luna speaking to
Killian" We came to a halt in front of the basic house; it was large, certainly, but it lacked a superior structure; it was simply a wooden structure. This, I suppose, is their packhouse. Though this is not the case with other rogue houses who have dispersed over our realm. They hauled me inside. Serena was still in my arms. They were forcing me away, and I nearly dropped Serena as a result. "fuck" I scream as I glare at the man who shoved me. Nonetheless, they disregard me. We came to a halt in the center of the living room, and I searched my eyes. There was a second level; wooden stairs led to it from the side of the house, where a large artwork of a wolf can be seen. If someone were to visit this house, they would believe it was a basic house that anyone could own... However, as a renegade location, I couldn't picture living in peace here. "put the lady on the sofa" One of the
Serena" I awoke with excruciating shoulder discomfort. Each movement causes me to wince in pain. "ouch" I cautiously opened my eyes and looked about to ascertain my location. I became aware that I had returned to my room. My right shoulder was examined. I noticed that there was a wound that was just about to heal. I get from my bed and proceed directly to my bathroom. I remove my royal blue gown as I recollect my thoughts on what happened to me. However, when the door burst open, my eyes widened as I turned to see Killian standing there, his troubled and slightly fearful golden eyes staring at me. I examine myself and notice that my cheeks had cooled as I realize I was only wearing my undergarments. I immediately panicked. I attained whatever I could. "yah!" I screamed and hurled the soap at him, which landed on his forehead. "serve him" Killian slammed the door shut in
Killian" Following the man's abrupt departure, the man who claimed me as his twin. With my hazy and scattered thoughts, I hadn't realized how I'd arrived at this location. Despite all the thoughts racing through my mind, I am still tightly clutching Serena in my arms. As we approach Serena's favorite location, which was previously my private location when I was younger, it has become my most despised location as a result of this princess. I am greeted by a powerful punch from the alpha, which suddenly brings me back to reality. My footprint is left on the ground as I attempt to remain still. I initially checked to see if the alpha's horse that Serena stole was still there. I was surprised that the alpha and the battalion were already waiting here. Perhaps the perimeter guards immediately alerted the other, as I was expecting. I remain immobile following that hit, not because I am stronger than the alpha, but out of fear of dropping Serena.
Serena" Naturally, I was joking when I said intimate matters. That would never occur. Alonzo was simply a friend to me. But it was the way Killian pushed himself to comply with my father's command that irritated me the most. I stomped fiercely as I approached my chamber. I'm sick of his present! Apart from that, I need to speak with this beta's son, and Killian should be kept out of the loop regarding what I would say to Alonzo. However, before I could enter my room, Adriana, Alonzo's oldest sister, appeared striding and swaying her hips with a slight hair flip and her bitch smile on display. Adriana said, "Hey brother," and bowed in front of me. Even though I am aware that she does not wish to do so, I have known for a long time that she despises me just because Killian was my guard. I'm aware that she adores my obnoxious creature guard. Nonetheless, the man's gaze was perpetually fixed on me. Although it is not because he likes me, b
Killian" "I'm so excited when Luna ask me this task, I mean I precisely don't like that brat, but as long as you were my partner, everything would be ok" "Killian, are you listening?" Adriana muttered something, but I was preoccupied with the princess and her companion, and I kept wondering what they were up to now. Serena had completely forgotten about what had occurred previously, but the way her bare body looked was still as plain as water to me. And my screwed head is covered in shrouds, obstructing the sober mind that was left on me as a result. This is entirely the responsibility of the brat. The door slammed shut in front of me as the Beta's son and princess entered the room. Following that, I tilt my head to calm my nerves. "Don't worry they would be ok inside" Adriana stated, and I recall the Alpha saying the same thing. "From now on, you will remain within the prince
