"Isabella"Erica called her. She had heard already that Derick left to fetch his mother and sister. Why would he do that without informing his mate?
She heard when Isabella asked the guards of Derick's whereabouts and the response she received. He is out of the pack so early in the morning?
The latter turned and saw her mother walking towards her. She paused but still frowned. How can Derick still go ahead and leave without telling her?
What if it's a lie that he was ambushed and not just merely going to find his family? When he left her the last time, she suffered and he had his own share of suffering, an experience he hadn't found the mouth with which to tell the story.
"I heard Derick left the pack
An ever ready bodyguard, standing by Fred Wilson dashed into action and dragged Lukas closer, bent his head and thundered "kiss the feet of the alpha"Lukas' eyes were filled with hatred and bitterness. He glared at the feet before him which he was asked to kiss.Him, Lukas Briston, the one time Alpha of the ranger's pack to be subjected to this kind of treatment? Kissing another Alpha's feet?Where is the respect that should be accorded to him? His ego has been bruised and his pride had been trampled under by Fred.This is too much to be done. He should pass his judgement and not allow him wallow too long in shame and disgrace. He wished for death than his present experience
Erica went on telling her daughter the do's and don'ts and how Isabella should keep her distance from Derick.Isabella frowned but waited for her mother to finish her words. Why is her mother trying to cause a rift between her and Derick?Why is she sowing a seed of discord in her heart against a man that relates with them with a pure heart.She is purely showing her detest for him. From her words and how she thinks she is counseling her, she is only showing her hatred and dislike for her mate.Derick is her life. She will not let anyone make her feel unsafe being with him, even if that person happens to be her mother. She would fight to be with him and love him to the end.
" Guess what Derick,?" Isabella asked, pulling away and holding him by his fingers tips and turned herself round and embraced him again.Derick chuckled. Guess? That's something he is not good at. In fact he doesn't guess. Is either he knows it or doesn't have an idea.He looked at her, trying to read her thoughts but Isabella turned and hugged him from behind. She was hiding herself from him, she can predict it already that he would get the answers from her thoughts." Well I am not good at guessing. You can be nice enough to just spew the beans. What's the use of buying time unnecessarily?" Derick teased, placing his hand on hers."Ok I will tell you any ways. Mum said she would be discussing with Dad ab
Isabella's authority prevailed and Derick stayed behind. He was angry and walked out on her, went and find a suitable place to sit in the garden.Derick remained there, unhappy with Isabella's unwillingness to understand him when he heard the noise of Fred Wilson's return. He was startled by the noise and he gradually stood up.He perceived his mother's scent. But his father's was dominant. It could only be explained that his father was somewhere nearby but his mother and sister were a bit far.Why is his father there? Oh perhaps as a prisoner. He doesn't want to see him, see his humiliation, shame and his present predicament.He is more interested in finding his mother. He wants to meet her and Laura and get th
