chapter-8

“Well meet your grandkids, Jedrck and Antalia” Lucy thought about the events played last night, when she introduced her kids to her freshly reunited family, not that they were welcoming but, still it meant a lot form her to introduce her kids to the family.

They were shocked at least that’s for sure, her mother who she came to know haven’t said much to anybody since, she left but, anyways I made them spell bound for sure, like came after twenty so years with not one but, two teenage kids, adults to be precise and the existence of whom was not know till now.

Lucy’s mother was most shocked so does her father and that bitch of her sister and the brother, his mate and their kids well, you can say they were anything but, happy but, surprised for sure. Before they would have sprouted ill-wills to her kids which, she might add her sister more or so suggested she painted the town red but, she was ignored and soon, kids and her left the place and they totally laid down their dislike for their new found family, especially Antalia, who was just seconds away from ripping my bitch of sisters hairs, not my words but, her not that I can complain or cool her down because internally I was fuming too, Jedrck on the other hand didn’t say much but looked thoughtful and way into his own thoughts, but let me know that he too disliked the way they were treated previous night not that they expected to be treated open hearted, not that Lucy herself was happy but, still gulped the insults because of her mother.

Today to they are going to meet her mother, here Lucy obediently waiting for kids to come down stair so that they can go to the main house and have breakfast with her and to finally meet her without any interruptions.

Seriously you two” Lucy shouted “be down this instant or I’ll be going without you guys.”

After hearing Lucy’s warning they hurriedly descended the stairs and graced their mother with their presence, both were dressed exactly the same with the ripped jeans and with matching coloured tops.

“let’s go” said Antalia beaming at her mother time like this she is thrown into flashbacks of their father, whose presence is more prominent some days than other in them , like today, their beaming faces resembled his so much that it sometimes difficult to breathe.

“Why so eager to go there?” mumbled Jedrck “it’s not like they will welcome us.”

“Well I’m not but, it’s for mom’s mother not, of us” Antalia said sounding mature, which is rare “and we can always leave them to their devices and find something of our own.”

“C’mon you two” Lucy said before they launch into new set of arguments. Goddess only know they are terrible at that and it’s beyond her belief that she stayed sane with them always around.

“I call dibs on front seat” with that Antalia dashed towards the car with Jedrck following not far behind, shaking her head Lucy too joined her kids.

………..

“So how’s the pancakes” asked Lucy mother to her grandkids, goddess know how many sleepless nights she has to see her daughter, to see her having her own family. What happened was not right? She knew that but, at that time she fell short, failed as the mother.

“oh they so soft ”Antalia said her mouth full making her grandmother laugh and eating more of whatever she could find, and Jedrck nodding after her statement.

“Antalia manners” Lucy scolded her daughter.

“oh hush Lucy, let the poor girl eat” said Lucy’s mother.

“Please they are acting as I have never fed them before” Lucy said to her mother “and beside this, you should be resting not making this feast of us, a smile thing made by the cooks would have been suffice.” Lucy told her mother

“I’m perfectly fit, and this was not hassle to cook after you and my new set of grand kids” Lucy’s mother said “it’s been so long my beautiful girl, how have you been?”

“I have been fine” Lucy replied simply not understanding what to add more to it or from where to start for that matter “they have kept me busy and my work, being a owner of the law firm is not that easy as they make it sound”

“I’m very proud of you Lucy” her mother said to her holding her hand in hers “you were always driven, but what I really want to know is that these past twenty years, where have you been? How have you been? All alone no one to help you, after what happened? How you coped up?”

All these questions so many answer but, where to start? “Mom it’s so much to tell, and so much being unsaid, I don’t know what to tell you? But, it’s been difficult, hard but, I managed my friends helped, believe it or not they been gems too.” Lucy said and wiped the tear that escaped her eye “they are not the brats, I raised them better, but the circumstances been difficult, hard but I managed, we managed” before Lucy could add more uncle gorge entered the room with his big smile and greeted them with hello’s “so why you younglings are sitting here like bunch of old ladies?”

“Well first, younglings really and secondly, we just had breakfast retorted Antalia.

“Well then let’s go” Uncle George said ignoring the Antalia jab at the word younglings.

“go where” Jedrck questioned

“Well lets go and make you familiar with the pack” Uncle George said and ushered both the kids out of the house to mingle with the pack.

……….

Soon Antalia and Jedrck found themselves roaming the pack land getting familiar with the surroundings of the pack, and the way their great uncle is showing them around is quiet interesting like they just visited the place which apparently to my mothers and to her friends were secret, apparently it was just their figment of imagination and the tree house they have for the kids, which was built on our mothers insistence and we visited the best bakery of the pack lands, and trust me they have best pastries of the town, and much more.

But right now we are taking to some old man more importantly it’s just Antalia and uncle George are talking to the old man, whose name I forgot and quite frankly not that I care, what I care is my wolf Ander been quiet restless from yesterday diner, and he is stirring now again in the same manner? Before I could sense what is wrong with him, a serene scent assaulted my senses mixed with blood, drove my wolf to edge, stirring havoc in me and not to far I saw bunch of people huddled in circle and trashing some person with their comments and I hear the arrogant voice of that lad, what’s his name yeah sanders? Hearing him boast and bully someone had mu blood boiling and before I could think rationally my wolf urged me to move forward and soon I found myself standing directly behind the group, and that sweet mesmerising scent have my senses drunk, and drove my wolf to edge with possessiveness and passion that I don’t know I had with all my strength separated the huddle bunch of stupid pigs and what I found made me see red, Sanders was killing the poor lad with blows after blows, and he is the source of the serene scent that made me drunk without even drinking, sensing my presence, his gaze clashed with me, he can barely open his eyes, but whatever connection it made urged my wolf to come forward and he threw that brat Sanders away from the boy, scaring the huddled bunch and gaining the attention from the passersby, and her sister and great uncle too, who came rushing to them and that boy Sanders n rage of his came right to struck him, but got thrown away again by his angered wolf, who is up for any fight?

“Jedrck” Antalia said stopping him from doing any further damage to that spoiled brat. “Stop it, what’s gotten into you?” but all the warning were deaf to his ears but the groaning sound of the boy pulled him from his trance and freeing from his sisters grasp he joined the boys side and cradled his body close to him, still shaking from the anger for that brat.

“Jedrck” Uncle George approached cautiously to his side, but his wolf is on possessive mode growled at him and to anyone who came towards him, to take away or do any harm to his boy, and growled to let them know who this boy is to him.

“Mine”
