Chapter 25: Betrayed
“Lilly I’m open!” I shouted on the field.
She looked up from her dribbling and kicked the ball over to me.
I got it and started dribbling down the field.
I did a turn and passed by Liam and kicked the ball too Ashe.
Once she got it, she kicked it in the goal and David dove, but missed it.
“Girls 5, boys 1.” Katie smiled highfiving me.
“You girls are cheating.” Liam accused bringing the ball to the half way line.
“Poor Liam.” Lilly teased.
Liam glared at her, and Tony moved closer to Lilly.
Mental aww moment.
“You were the ones that suggested we played girls vs boys.” I said shrugging.
“Ya. But you have Ashe, Lilly, and Katie. While I have David, Tony and Carlos.” Liam said.
“Exactly. We have two little kids on our side and you have one little kid and an adult.”
“She’s got a point there.” Carlos laughed.
“And we are still beating your butts.” Ashe smirked.
David growled playfully and rushed towards Ashe.
Ashe stopped laughing and let out a yelp before taking off in a different direction with David on her tail.
“Children.” Carlos laughed shaking his head.
“So. How are you doing?” I asked laughing.
“With what?” Carlos asked tilting his head.
“You’re baby girl having a mate?”
He growled slightly and I laughed. “I don’t like it..but I can’t really do anything about it.”
“You’ll be fine.” I said.
“Ya. But if he breaks my baby’s heart, I’m breaking him.”
“Haha. That would be funny to see.” Liam laughed. Carlos glared at him. “No no. The David breaking part. Not your daughter getting he heart smashed by David.” He said nervously.
“I would like to see David break too” Carlos agreed smiling.
David came running back up too us. When he got over to us, he huffed and slammed himself on the ground with his arms crossed.
“What’s wrong drama queen?” I asked sitting next to him.
“I caught Ashe and went to go give her a kiss, but she got away and locked me out of our room.” He huffed upset.
Liam, Carlos, and I stared at David for a second before bursting out laughing.
“That is great!” Liam shouted trying to stop from falling.
“That’s my daddy’s little girl.” Carlos smiled proudly. “I’ll go get her.” He said before he walked off.
Once I stopped laughing I stood back up and stretched. “So. Where’s Jake? He didn’t say anything about any meetings or running patrol last night.”
Liam and David froze and looked at each other.
“I don’t know.” Liam said not looking at me.
“Ya. I’m with Liam.” David replied whistling.
“You know. You not looking at me, and you whistling are a sure dead give away that I know you two are lying.” I said putting my hands on my hip.
Liam sports Sadie walking over to us. “Of course I’ll grab your phone fore you Sadie. David will you come help me get it?” Liam asked.
David nodded frantically. “Ya. Of course bro.”
They let out a nervous laugh before they sprinted off.
Tony, Katie, and Lilly just stood there with a confused expression on their faces.
Well that makes five of us.
“I have my phone right here…” Sadie trailed off as she held up her phone.
“Okay then.” I laughed as I watched their retreating forms.
“Do you want to play soccer with us Sadie?” Lilly asked holding the soccer ball up.
“Ew no.” Sadie scowled. Bitch.. “I came here to talk to Avery.”
“You did?” I asked.
“She did?” Katie asked.
“I did.” Sadie confirmed.
“About?” I asked.
“Jake. Listen, just because you think you are hot shit because you are the only werefox out there. Or fox spirit whatever you call it. You’re not.” She shrugged. “You are still pretty weak, and Jake will be crawling back to me.”
“He never was yours.” Katie said matter-of-factly.
Said whipped her head to Katie, but Katie never flinched. Huh, brave kid. Must be the alpha blood in her.
“Listen here. Your brother and I belong together no matter what. And I won’t let his little slut of a mate ruin that. They shouldn’t even be mates.”
Lilly gasped and threw the soccer ball at Sadie, which hit her in the gut and stomped on her foot.
“Don’t say that about my sister!” Lilly yelled.
Sadie growled and that caused Lilly to flinch.
Tony noticed and stood in front of Lilly and let out a possessive and dangerous growl.
We all stood in shock except for Tony who continued to glare daggers at Sadie.
“Back off.” Tony spat.
“Holy shit. He’s only nine.” Sadie said shocked.
I nodded. “Well, that was unexpected.”
“Ya it was.” Katie said.
“Okay then. Anyway. On to more serious matters, just stay away from Jake. K?” Sadie smiled before she pranced off towards the pack house.
“Gosh I hate her.” Katie said shaking her head.
“Who doesn’t.” Tony said.
“I wish she would stay where ever she disappears too.” I said growling.
“Let’s go play some soccer.” Tony suggested to try and lighten the mood.
“I’m down with that.” I said picking the ball up from the ground.
“Jake!” I smiled and ran over to hug him.
He jumped a little and turned around. When he saw me, he smiled wide and held out his arms.
“I want to be young again.” My mom laughed from the couch by Jake’s mom.
“Oh. But being our age is awesome.” Stacy laughed. “We can do whatever we want.”
“Excuse me?” John asked leaning against the doorway with his arms crossed.
Stacy looked at John before tinting back to my mom. “Like I said. We can do whatever we want.”
“Oh whatever. Jake scoffed. “I need to go do some paper work. Wanna come with?” Jake asked turning towards me.
“I have to take a shower first. Then I’ll be right down.” I said pecking his lips.
Jake smirked and opened his mouth to say something, but I quickly covered it. “Don’t even think about it.”
Jake growled and walked down the hall and slammed his door.
‘Drama queen.’ I teased.
‘Oh shut it.’ He joked.
I rolled my eyes and headed upstairs to the shower.
I stripped down and hopped in.
The warm water felt soooooo good on my back.
I swear, if I could sleep in hear without drowning or looking like a 900 year old, I probably would.
I hopped out and quickly get dressed before I started jogging down the stair case.
I walked up to his office before I heard some shuffling. And it didn’t sound like paper moving around.
It sounded like two bodies…
I quietly opened the door and what I saw broke my heart and shattered it into a million pieces.
There was Jake….with Sadie in his lap while he’s sitting on the chair…..kissing……
Oh my gosh…..
Tears came out and I quietly closed the door and ran into the living room.
My mom quickly jumped up and ran towards me.
“Baby. What’s wrong?” She asked rubbing my back.
“Avery?” I heard Ashe run up to me.
I grabbed her hand and ran up the stairs to my room and locked the door.
“What’s wrong?” She asked worried pulling me in for a hug.
“I-I saw J-Jake and S-Sadie kissing. A-And I d-don’t know what t-to do.” I sobbed harder.
“Okay okay. Calm down and explained to me exactly what you saw.” She said moving us too the bed.
It took a few minutes, but I got my frantic sobbing under control. But I was still crying, just not as much.
“Jake told me to meet him in his office after I was done taking a shower. When I opened the door to his office, he was sitting in his chair, with Sadie on his lap making out. That’s when I shut the door and ran into the living room crying.”
“Oh honey. Are you sure she wasn’t forcing him?”
I nodded. “I stood there for a little bit and he didn’t try to push her off or anything.”
Ashe looked shocked before she let out a low growl. “That asshole! What the hell is he thinking for cheating you?! His mate!” She abruptly stood up and started pacing.
I shrugged. “I don’t know.” I sobbed quietly again still thinking about it.
“And Liam and David are his best friends. They tell each other everything. So if he is, ten they would know about it.”
“But I don’t know if he actually is or not. That’s the thing.” I pointed out.
“We just won’t talk to them.” Ashe said grabbing my hand. “Come on. Let’s go show your cheating of a mate that you are hopping with your life and you don’t need him.” Ashe smiled.
I gave her a weak smile and stood up walking out of the room with her.
‘Red?’ I asked hoping to talk to her.
‘Red?’ I tried again.
It was silent for a few moments. ‘Ya. I’m here. I….i just need some time to think.’ She sounded so depressed.
‘You and me both.’ I sighed sadly.
