Zack clears his throat. "We have been dreaming about Brandon Snow." "Ahhh," Lucille says, smiling and nodding her head. "The future Beta. And a white wolf to boot. Your future pups will be quite beautiful with Charlie's chocolate coloring and Zak's reddish hue. The three of you will make wonderful parents." Zak's mouth drops open and Charlie squeaks out, "Our future... pups!" "What do you know of Selene and her mates?" Lucille asks. "Mates? I only know of one mate. Pan," Charlie says. "As the god of the wild and the goddess of the moon, Pan and Selene's children became werewolves. Wild creatures who were controlled by the moon." "Ahhh. Is that what they are teaching the young pups now? That Selene only had one mate? I knew that they didn't want mate trios any longer, but I didn't know that they would attempt to change even Selene's story," Lucille chuckles. "Alpha, Luna, do you truly believe that if there was no humanity in their coupling that we would be human at all?" "Wait. What?" Zak says. "If we were only children of Pan and Selene, we would always be wild creatures. Nymphs, satyrs, centaurs. But we aren't. Of course, we could remain in our wolf form all the time if we wish, but we always have the ability to shift into human form. No, young ones, Selene had two mates. One, the god Pan. The other, a human man named Endymion. We get our wolves from Pan, our pull to the moon from Selene, and our human selves from Endymion," Lucille says. "Why..." Zak licks his lips and starts again. "Why weren't we told this?" "Ahhh," Lucille breathes out, taking a sip of her coffee. "Because not every wolf has two mates, as Selene did. As you two do."View More
Welp, that was a shit show. It went about as well as we expected, though I had no idea that Arya would reject Xander and Devin. Having felt that with Brandon, I know what they are going through. And they will be feeling like that for two days until she returns. They are currently staying in Brandon’s room so that they are closer to everyone. Lauren and Mom are with them.Xander’s mom is in the pack hospital after her most recent bout of chemotherapy. She’s called and Facetimed several times, attempting to get him to respond, but he hasn’t really said anything. He and Devin haven’t moved in hours, laying in each other’s arms on Brandon’s bed.Charlie, Brandon, and I have taken turns going to see them, but Charlie and I both know that they don’t really hear us.&n
After Devin entered and he and Arya claimed each other as mates, pretty much everyone was silent and shocked. Well, those of us that didn’t know. So everyone except the Oracle, Meredith, my mates, and me. And Mathias. I could already tell that he was pissed when Arya and Xander claimed each other as mates. I’m guessing that he and Arya were in some kind of relationship and he isn’t too happy to have his bedmate taken. But when Devin claimed Arya as well, his fury became palpable.Zak, Charlie, and I had watched as Mathias began to shift, seemingly without his consent. His wolf fed on his rage and began to take over his form.The three of us fanned out, each linking separate warriors to make sure that we were ready for whatever might happen.
As I walk through the packhouse, I can smell the most intoxicating scent of lavender and honey floating through, mixed with Xander’s scent of oak, nutmeg, and leather. It’s her. She’s here and with Xander. “Go, Gamma,” Lucille smiles at me as she sees me scenting the air. “Meredith will help me from here. We’ll be right behind you.” I gently release Lucille’s hand from my arm and place it on Meredith’s. I smile at her warmly before hurrying out of the house. I hear the loud voice of a male wolf say, “Looks like we have something more to celebrate, other than our packs’ meeting.” I figure it is Mathias, but I don’t even spare him a glance as I take in the sight of my two mates holding each other. Seeing the two of them t
I walk outside with Zak, Brandon, Charlie, and the pack elders. This is it. Our mate will be here in a matter of minutes. My heart feels like it is going to thunder out of my chest and I can’t help but reach out to the hand closest to me. It happens to be Brandon’s, which causes a sudden movement from Charlie and an almost glare from Zak before they see my face. I’m sure I’m as white as a ghost.Brandon looks into my face and squeezes my hand. “It’s ok, Xander. I know that this is incredibly hard, but it will be ok. The Goddess promised. You will see your mate today and then you will have her forever in two days. We’ll be here for you and you’ll have Dev. You just have to be strong for a little longer.”I nod, absentmindedly. I didn&rsqu
By 12:45 everyone but Devin,Lucille, and Meredith are in the dining hall. Everyone is tense, waiting for the inevitable blow-up. This is going to be bad. Really, really bad. “You’re going to end up hurting your lip, Red,” Brandon says, sliding his thumb along my lip to pull it from between my teeth. He bends down and gives me a quick peck on the lips. “I’m just…” “Nervous?” “Yeah,” “Me, too. But we’re going to get through this. I’m more worried about Dev and Xander than anything.” After leaving the banquet hall this morning, and fucking like crazy, Zak and I told Brandon everything about the Goddess’s visit. He knows everything and why we kept it from him. I have to s
We are all in the banquet hall to help Clara prepare for the Blue Crescent Pack’s arrival. Whereas the hall was decorated in soft drapery and blue and silver tones for the ascensions, there is a completely different vibe for this arrival. Clara mixed the soft tones of our pack and the large portrait at the end of the hall to display hopeful friendship and peace, along with displays of might. Clara ensured that the seating arrangements showed our best warriors at the head of the hall, while putting their pack below the high table with only their Alpha and Delta at the head table. Pictures of our wolves in battle and during training, both in human and wolf form, were displayed throughout the hall, along with copies of deeds of land that we had won through battle, treaties with other packs, and pictures of Zak and Jared with a variety of alphas from across the country. It was a way to show our prowess in battle and our
It’s hard to believe that the bond between Charlie, Brandon, and me can get even deeper. But the second that Xander drinks from the cup and our brotherhood is complete, it is almost like I can feel him in every corner of my mind. Though he has been inside my head as my mate, able to feel my emotions and occasionally read my thoughts, this is new. It feels as if his presence is everywhere. This ever present feeling is only matched by Charlie’s presence.Unlike our last ascension dinner, this one ends well. Many in the pack come up to congratulate not only Brandon in becoming Beta, but the three of us in our mating. Some of the older women start asking about when we are going to provide them with some pups to dote over. Charlie’s face is glowing at their questions and I can’t keep the smile off of my face. Brandon’s face starts out
“Members of the Artemis Pack!” The Oracle booms into the banquet hall, arms spread wide and a smile on her face. The meal was magnificent, a true testament to Clara’s skills as a hostess. Now it was time for the ceremony. Lucille’s salutation is greeted with howls and thunderous applause. “Today we are completing our pack’s new leadership with the ascension of our new Beta! “Brandon Snow will take his place beside his mates, Alpha Zakary Loup and Luna Charlotte Loup, and his friends Gamma Devin Laoch and Delta Xander Hawthorne. I cannot imagine a better choice for Lady Selene to pick as the second-in-command and helpmate to our beloved Alpha and Luna. His faithful and selfless service nearly led him to reject his mates for the good of our pack. I cannot imagine a more committed and loyal wolf to help lead us.”
