Ryder’s POV,

I still have this damn limp. I’m not completely healed, but tonight we attack. I’m not waiting any longer. I’m not taking the chance of him moving her again. Tonight my family will be reunited. Tonight I will get my revenge and nothing is going to stop me. I rule this shit and now it’s time to show him just who the fuck he has fucked with. No more being weak. No more feeling lost. No more head games. I’ll get my family and blow his whole world apart. Over a hundred men are in place. Two locations will be burned to the ground. We will go in full force and I will have my time. I will have my kingdom complete before the night is over.

Down the hall, I could hear them talking shit. I knew my men had him. I knew it was now time to shine. I still had no idea where my woman and son were. I had to make them my last priority tonight. I had to have Draco with no chance of him getting away. I walked to the doorway. I heard him run his mouth still believing I was dead. My men had him covered in guns. He had no way out unless he wanted out dead. Then a door to the left of us opened and out she stepped. My heart stopped seeing her standing there looking scared. Her eyes crossed the room and landed on mine. I held my ground. Because only God knew how bad I wanted to run to her and hold her.

I needed her out of this room. I needed her protected. Draco went and ran for her. All guns, including mine, went off. There’s was no way he was getting off from this that easy. We took his legs out and he hit the ground. I moved forward and with everything I had. I picked her up into my arms. My baby was full-on pregnant and it’s didn’t bother me one bit. Even though I had the strength to hold her. I found myself going to the ground. “I’m so sorry.” Her lips found mine. Lost in a kiss, my men took Draco out of the room. Only Jason and Owen stayed behind.

“Please don’t blame yourself.” Her sweet voice said in my ear. How could this woman not hate me? “I love you. I thought you were dead.”

“No angel, I’ll always be here for you. I love you so much.” Our lips met again.

“Boss, I’m sorry to interrupt. We have to get out of here.” Owen said. I nodded at them and started to stand up.

“Mama?” We all heard the small voice say. We turned and my son was peeking out the closet. My breath caught in my throat.

“Oh baby, I’m sorry. Come here?” Danica said. The little boy ran into his mama’s arms. My good he is beautiful. My heart grew twice its size as he looked up at me. Danica smile. “Nicolas, I want you to meet Ryder. This is your daddy.” Nicolas looked at me again.

“Hello, little man.” He gave me a smile. I put my arms out to him. Expecting him to be sacred and not come to me, but he came to my arms and I vowed right there and then to never let him go. I stood up with Nicolas in my arms and my angel at my side. We left together.

Draco was secured in my warehouse, the bastard was still alive. Just the way I wanted him to be. He was heavily guarded. From my understanding, most of his men were killed. A few cowards got away, but it was nothing I worried about. My time with Draco was coming, but for now, I needed my family. I wish that I was able to bring my woman home to something she was comfortable and familiar with, but I had to hide. My home was hidden, but it was now our home.

I found her in the bathroom after we got Nicolas to sleep. She was standing in front of the mirror just looking at herself. I stood quietly in the doorway watching her. She turned and smiled at me. Then she started to fall. I ran and caught her before she hit the ground. She was passed out in my arms. I pulled my phone out and called for my personal doctor and Jason. Jason got to us first. “What happened?” Jason asked as he came to our side. I couldn’t even speak. I just shook my head. I picked her up and laid her in our bed. Please god, let her be okay. I sent silent prayers out. The doctor got to us and Jason and I stood out of the way. Danica opened her eyes while the doctor was with her. He gave her a sedative that put her right to sleep.

“It’s all just too much for her. She is in shock and needs to rest. Other than that she is healthy and her baby is doing good. Let her rest as much as her body needs.” I thanked him profusely and once everyone was gone. I crawled into bed with her and pulled her into my arms.

“I promise you will never be without me again. I promise you he will never touch you again. I love you.” I whispered into her ear. Over the next two days, Danica was in and out of sleep. She would wake to eat and use the bathroom but went right back to sleep once she was done. The doctor came to see her twice a day and let me know that this was all normal. I was worried that everything had broken her and she might never be the same. I knew my son needed us, but my attention was on Danica. Nicolas knew Owen and Owen stepped up and took care of him while I took care of her. Danica was sitting up having some dinner. I was in the room eating with her. She wasn’t saying much, but she would stare at me and when I would look over at her. She would give me a smile and it made me feel better. There was a light tap on our bedroom door. I got up to open it and Owen and Nicolas stood on the other side.

“I’m sorry boss, but he was asking for his mother.” I smiled at him and moved aside so he could come in. “Would you like me to wait out here?” Owen asked. I shook my head and Owen turned to walked away.

“Owen?” He stopped and looked at me. “Thank you.” He smiled and nodded. I closed the bedroom door and found Nicolas under the covers in his mother’s arms. She looked at peace. I walked in and took a seat on the edge of the bed.

“Hello, boss,” Nicolas said and both Danica and I started to laugh.

“He is not your boss,” Danica said while we were still laughing. Nicolas looked at us both with confusion written all over his face.

“But everyone else calls him that.” I smiled at him. All

I wanted to do was hold him in my arms.

“You can call me anything you want to, but I’m just your dad.” Nicolas looked at Danica. She smiled and nodded at him. Danica laid back against her pillows and closed her eyes. Nicolas yawned and looked at me. “Do you want to stay here tonight with your mama?” He nodded at me. I grabbed the tv remote and changed the tv to some sort of cartoon. Nicolas turned and watched the television for as long as his little eyes would let him. I sat in the chair and just watched the two of them the rest of the night.

Danica woke me up the next morning. I could tell right off the bat that she was doing better. I watched her get up and go into the bathroom. Nicolas was still sound asleep. I got up and walked to the bathroom. She was at the sink brushing her teeth. I walked in and stood next to her. “How are you feeling?” She looked at me in the mirror.

“Much better, I’m sorry I have been out of it.” I just shook my head at her. Something inside me snapped. I turned and started the shower. Soon the bathroom was full of steam. I walked over to her and started to remove her clothes. I waited to make sure she wasn’t going to stop me. When she didn’t I got her completely naked and kicked her clothes away from us. I took my clothes off and took her into the shower. All I wanted to do was wash all the pain and hurt away from her. Neither one of us spoke a word as I washed her body. I kissed every inch of her body as I washed it all away. Her hands held on to me as I did my best to make it all go down the drain. Besides the sound of the water. All I could hear was our breathing. It started to increase as I moved my kisses up her body towards her lips. “Ryder.” She said.

“Yes, my angel?”

“I need you.”

“I need you to.” She wrapped her arms around me. It was almost like we just needed to be together. I was rough with her as I turned her around, needing to reclaim what was mine. Her moans told me she needed the same. She bent down the wall and without thinking. I entered her from behind. She whispered out my name and it pushed me forward. “You are now and have always been mine,” I said sounding beast-like.
