Chapter 5

Reid's POV

"Are you going to tell me what that was about?" Damien finally says breaking the silence.

"How could the moon goddess do this to me?" I say staring out the window in front of me.

"What? What are you talking about?" He asked.

"I hate hybrids! She knows I hate hybrids!... Why would she do this to me?"

Who? What are you talking about? you're making no sense." He says confused.

"Is this about that one in the last cell?"

"Yeah." I say quietly.

"Man you gotta tell me... What's going on? You're making me nervous now.?

"It was my mate." I say.

I jerk forward as the tires screech, the car jerking off to the side. The car finally come into a stop.

"Are you fucking kidding me! That was your mate and you just left him back there? What the fuck is wrong with you?"

I look over at him after I pulled my stomach out of my ass from his little stunt.

"You may be my cousin but watch the way you fucking talk to me! I am your Alpha now!" I say, pissed.

"I'm sorry about that man. But how could you do that? How could you leave your own mate back there like that?"

"I don't know." Was all I could say.

"Just drive." I say to him looking back out the window in front of me.

"Where too? Back there to get your mate or home without our Luna."

My head snaps back at him, "that hybrid is not your Luna!" I say firmly.

"Wow man!" Damien says as he starts to drive back home.

"Wow!" He said again.

Neither one of us say another word the whole way home. As soon as we got home he jerked the car to a stop, opening his door then slamming it before storming off into the house.

I'm left sitting there trying to wrap my head around everything. I slowly make my way out the car walking back into the pack house.

"Hey honey how was your visit at Ace's pack today?" I hear my dad say. I just look over at him but couldn't form any words. I slowly turn toward the stairs and head upstairs to my room.

"Honey? Is everything okay? I hear my dad say, but I don't respond. I just keep walking up the stairs.

I feel numb and I take my clothes off stepping into the shower. I feel like the stench from the dungeon seeped into my pores. I can still smell it on my skin.

I get in the shower turning it on as hot as I can, feeling my skin burn as it turns red. I grab the loofah, drenching it in soap before scrubbing my body as hard as I can. I scrub harder as I feel my shoulders shake realizing I'm crying. I crumpled to the floor under the water as it pours down on me.

I bring my knees up folding my arms on top of them and dropping my head onto my arms as I cry.

I just left him there....

My heart hurts that I just left him in there like that. How could I do that.

I squeeze my eyes tight as I ball up my fist, throwing my head back against the wall as I open my mouth and scream as loud as I can.

I crumpled to the floor laying down as I cry... I sob.

I hear banging at the door and my father's voice on the other side.

I don't say anything, I just lay there crying.

I hear the door break open as my father comes rushing in, opening the door and scooping me up off the floor.

He pulls me into his lap and I throw my arms around him, my face going into his neck as I cry.

"Son, hey it's okay.... It's okay now.

What's wrong, what happened?"

I hear my father's soothing voice say.

"I left him there father, I left him there!"

I say as I cry harder.

"Who? Who did you leave, and where?" My father asked.

"My mate. I just left him there."

"You're mate?"

My father says trying to pull my face back but I don't let him, I just hold on tighter. I can't look at him. I don't want him to see the person that did this. That left his own mate back there.

"What are you talking about son? Where did you leave him?" He asked sounding concerned now.

"In the dungeon... At aces.

I fucking left him in there." I say as I cry harder.

My father prise me off of him forcefully. He holds me at arm's length away, his hands gripping me harshly.

I can feel his fingers digging into my skin.

"What the fuck are you talking about!?" He yells.


We're now sitting in my father's office. Well technically it's my office now, but it seems at this moment it's still his.

My father forced me to tell him everything that happened. I told him what we saw. I told him about the hybrids and the condition that they were in. How they were being treated. I told him my mate was in there and was one of them.

"I can't believe you went there, with the intentions that you did. I raised you better than that!

I am glad that you came to your senses once you got down there and realized how wrong that was."

He paused.

"As for your mate. I hate to say this but you did the right thing by leaving him there.

"What!?" Damian yells standing up.

My dad growls at him, staring him in the eyes. Damien whimper's baring his neck while sitting back down.

"I'm sorry sir." He says.

My father looks back at me. "Like I was saying, it was the right thing to do, to leave him there. But not for the reasons you're thinking Damien!"

He says glancing back over at him.

"I don't think Ace would have let you take him out of there. Not alone at least.

I think all hell would have broke loose if you would have said he was your mate and tried to take him with you."

I was relieved that my father said that. Because I was initially surprised thinking he actually wanted me to leave him there.

"I want you to let him know we're coming back over there.

And we're all going." He said.

"Who is all?" I asked

"Your dad and your aunt for starter since those twins are almost unstoppable. And we're bringing Xander and Marcus." My father said

"Damien you're staying here. You're the beta now so you're going to take care of the pack while we're gone."

"Yes sir!" Damian says slightly bowing his head.

I'm going with you to make sure you keep your cool. I know you can get a little hot headed and we need to do this the right way. We don't need to be starting any wars.

My Father's eyes glaze over for a moment before returning to normal.

"I already talked to to them before speaking to you guys so they're already aware of the situation. They're going to meet us outside in 10 minutes." My father says standing up.

"Reid go get ready so we can leave. Let's go get your mate!"
