Chapter 37

Envy’s POV

As we all walk into the packhouse, it has a huge open concept. The main room is huge. There are tables all set up around the edge of the room with food and drink. They painted the walls ecru with black and gold accents. There in the middle of the room are two seats that remind me of thrones, along with a chair on each side. This puzzles me, of course. The one on the left is taller than the one on the right and the two on each side are yet smaller than the middle two. I know the bigger one is for Lexington, but the other three. I assume the smaller is a possibility of it being mine in the future. But the other two have me at a total loss there. I have my arm in Lexington’s as we walk. I pull him down to ask just so my mind does not keep in its wonderings.

“Honey, who are those seats at the top of the stage there?” I ask in wonderment.

“Oh those, well the one on the left is mine, right yours and the other two well they are for our children later on but as of now they are for our Beta’s.” He states like it is not a big deal.

“What do you mean our and our Beta’s? I know Canagan is your Beta and only one Beta per pack, so why your our Beta with an S on the end?” I look up at him, confused as ever.

“You are correct in that there is only one Beta per pack. But seeing as we are not just a pack but the King and Queen of all we have a Beta for myself and one for you.” He states, shrugging his shoulders.

I stand there looking at him, then at Canagan, as I know he heard us speaking. I have a look of what the fuck is he talking about. As I go to state my look into words Canagan speaks.

“Yes, I am the Beta, but you are Queen. You will get to pick who your female Beta will be,” Canagan says with a bit of excitement.

“Wait, what the fuck. Why would I get to pick a Beta for myself shouldn’t that be Lexington, as he is Alpha and King?” I ask confusion in my voice and face.

“No, my love, it is for you to pick your Beta. You have to be able to talk openly and feel safe with your Beta. I could pick, but that does not mean that you will be able to do both of them, so it is up to you. I would pick the best fighter in my pack, but that does not mean you two will get along, so it is up to you. You will make that choice in just a bit during the ceremony.” Lexington states.

I shake my head in total astonishment. “Seriously, you are just now throwing this at me with no notice?” I state in an astonished tone.

“To be honest, babe, I didn’t even think about it with everything that has been going on. I should have been more mindful of everything. I keep forgetting that you were not aware of the things that happen in a pack, let alone the royal happening. I only see you as my other half I forget that you were not aware of your whole being. But also this shouldn’t be something that should be that hard. I already have assumed that you would pick Elizabeth with no thoughts and that is how it should be,” Lexington says softly, with no signs of being upset about my outburst.

“Oh, I am sorry. I know that was rude of me but there is just so much for me to learn and so little time, it always seems. And you are correct Elizabeth is who I want for my Beta. She is the only other one here beside you that I trust wholeheartedly. No offense to you, Canagan,” I whisper softly to them.

“No offense taken, my Queen,” Canagan says smiling at me.

“Oh, fuck that, you are not allowed to address me as Queen. It is Envy only. I refuse for you, or Elizabeth to ever address me that way. I do not care if it is out of respect or not. I was just a normal human less than a few days ago and there is no way that I will accept anything other than Envy. I will just ignore you both if I get addressed that way.| I tell them all in a serious tone.

Lexington just laughs out loud. Shaking his head at me as he pulls me into a deep, passionate kiss. I push him away as I blush, looking around, seeing everyone is staring at us. Some have enormous smiles on their faces, while others look at us in disgust. I am not used to showing affection in public, let alone practically having him fuck my mouth like that. I shake my head as I look up at him. I pull him down to whisper in his ear.

“Babe, I am not used to that, so please take things slow with me out in public. I love that you want to show I am yours and you are mine, but I need a little more time. Not to mention the looks we are getting. I feel uncomfortable with the disgusted looks.” I whisper in his ear as I lean into his chest.

I next hear two loud growls. One is stronger than the other, and I look around to see where the second growl is coming from. I know the stronger one is from Lexington. I see Canagan has a pissed-off look on his face as he turns to look around the room. I see that Draven is about to come unglued. I reach for his arm to calm him down, as I am one of the two that can do this since we are connected. Elizabeth is the other. The next thing I know, Elizabeth is by my side like she has been pulled toward me with a magnet. Canagan is storming off towards the stage. Looking up at Lexington, he just smirks and then has a smile that reaches his eyes. It is like he knows exactly what is about to happen. As Canagan gets to the stage, he stops and turns to face the group that has gathered.

“YOUR ALPHA AND KING NOR MYSELF WILL PUT UP WITH THIS TOTAL DISREGARD AND DISRESPECT YOU ARE SHOWING TOWARDS YOUR LUNA AND SOON-TO-BE QUEEN. YOUR KING HAS FOUND HIS MATE AND IT DOES NOT MATTER TO US YOU DO NOT AGREE. SHE IS HIS OTHER HALF ALONG WITH HER BEING HIS. YOU ALL SHOULD KNOW THAT THEY ARE DESTINED MATES. THIS WAS NOT JUST A CHOICE OF HIS. THIS IS PUT IN PLACE BY THE MOON GODDESS. YOU ALL WILL SHOW HER THE RESPECT THAT SHE DESERVES. YOU ARE ALL PART OF THE ROYAL PACK SO THERE SHOULD ONLY BE HAPPINESS FOR THIS UNION. SO NOW THAT THIS HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED I WANT TO INTRODUCE TO YOU YOUR NEW LUNA. ENVY REZNIK.” Canagan used his Beta tone and everyone just stands there, looking with wide eyes.

Lexington is pulling me up towards the stage with his arm around my waist. Elizabeth is still right by my side. I am happy that she is there with me. It means the world to me. We get up at the top. Canagan moves to stand next to Lexington on his left. I hold my head high, as I know I can not show any type of discomfort. I have to be strong and I make a vow to myself right then I will never show disrespect towards my pack that is now my family. I will only show them love and compassion, but I will not take any shit off of any of them. I am going to be strong. I look up at Lexington and smile at him.

“I WANT TO ALSO WELCOME MY MATE, LUNA, AND SOON-TO-BE QUEEN TO THE PACK. THIS HAS BEEN A DAY THAT I HAVE WAITED MANY YEARS FOR. SHE IS EVERYTHING AND MORE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED AND WANTED IN MY LIFE. SHE IS THE BEST FOR ME AND I KNEW THIS AS SOON AS I SAW HER. SHE MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN I WAS HER MATE BUT I KNEW AS SOON AS I SAW HER. AND OF COURSE, HAROU KNEW BEFORE ME AS WE ALL KNOW THAT IS WHAT OUR WOLVES WAIT FOR. I COULD HAVE TAKEN A CHOSEN MATE BUT I KNEW MY DESTINED MATE WAS OUT THERE. NOW THAT I HAVE HER I FEEL COMPLETE. SO I WANT EVERYONE TO SHOW HER THE SAME RESPECT THAT YOU SHOW TOWARDS ME. THIS IS NOT A FORMAL CEREMONY AS WE WILL DO THAT WHEN THE REST OF THE PACK RETURNS FROM SOUTH DAKOTA. WITH THAT BEING SAID NOW THIS IS FORMAL, Lexington announced in his Alpha voice.

He leans over to me and kisses me on the cheek. And bows down to me. I look at him and pull him up to stand next to me again. As I look out over the group, everyone is now bowing their heads down to me, showing they accept this. I smile at everyone. I look over at Draven and he has the biggest smile on his face as he looks up at me from bowing, as well.

“Thank you, Lexington, Canagan, and everyone that is here tonight. This is such an honor for me to be here with everyone. I am at a loss for more words. But thank you all again and please rise,” I say to everyone in a strong voice.

“We have two more things that need to be completed tonight. I will do one the Canagan will complete this night off,” I say to everyone as I look over them, all taking Envy’s hand in mine. “Envy my Luna here in front of everyone tonight you will pick your female Beta that will stand by your side. Who will your Beta be?” I look into her eyes and ask her this important question.

“I will choose Elizabeth Stark to be my Beta,” Envy states with so much pride in her voice as she takes Elizabeth’s hand in her and hugs her tightly.

“Elizabeth Stark, do you accept this position as Beta to the future Queen of all Werewolves?” Lexington asks Elizabeth.

“Yes, my Alpha and King, I accept the position as my Luna and future Queens Beta,” Elizabeth replies as she kneels in front of Envy, bowing her head.

“Stand and take your place next to Canagan, Elizabeth,” Lexington states.

As Elizabeth walks over to Canagan, he reaches down and grabs her hand, squeezing it. Canagan stakes a step forward in front of Elizabeth.

“I Canagan Blaz, Beta of Alpha, and King Lexington want to introduce my mate Elizabeth Stark,” Canagan says with so much love in his voice and a smile that goes all the way to his eyes.

Canagan turns and reaches for Elizabeth’s hand and pulls her towards him. There is a loud gasp in the group.

“WELCOME TO THE PACK LUNA ENVY AND BETA ELIZABETH,” the group shouts.

“NOW EVERYONE EAT DRINK AND ENJOY YOUR NIGHT,” Lexington shouts out.

Lexington takes my hand and walks me over to my throne, and we sit down at the same time. Elizabeth and Canagan stand in front of us.

“Canagan, Elizabeth, since we do not have children yet, you both will take the seats next to us,” Lexington informs them.

They both look at us and nod their heads as they take the seats next to us. Draven walks up to us and stands behind my seat, between Elizabeth and me. Everyone grabs food and drink while they have conversations. You can feel the happiness in the room. Draven puts his hand on my shoulder and squeezes it gently. I look up at him and smile.

“My lovely baby girl, I am so very proud of you right now. Along with you, my lovely Elizabeth. You both are destined for great things with Lexington and Canagan by your sides.” Draven speaks low to me and Elizabeth.

“Thank you so much, Draven, that means a lot to me.” Elizabeth looks up at him and smiles

“Thank you, dad, I am so happy that you are here with us for these announcements. I just hope you will be here for the actual ceremony,” I say to him as I smile, looking up at him.

A waitress walks up to us, looking at Lexington with elation. “Alpha, Luna would you like anything to drink or eat?” she asks us.

“Yes please I would like a Barq’s with little ice if there is any available and a Black Forest ham and Colby/Jack cheese sandwich with Miracle Whip, lettuce, and tomato on white bread,” I tell her.

“I will take a Pepsi and a Cheese Steak sub with onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and mayo on it, and thank you,” Lexington tells her.

Next, she asks Elizabeth first then Canagan. They both get what Lexington ordered. I lean back on my throne to relax. I notice that everyone else is sitting up not relaxing. I feel out of place so I sit back up. I feel totally drained after everything has happened since we left South Dakota and then my hours with Lexington at his well our new house then this informal ceremony.

We all eat and drink what we are brought. Most everyone has come up and introduced themselves to me and Elizabeth. I know that I won’t remember most of their names but I will learn them in time. As the night winds down Lexington and I make our way back to our house. There are now only six guards along with Elizabeth and Canagan. Draven will be staying with us at the house. Thank the goddess that our room is soundproof. When we walk to the door of the house I hug Elizabeth and wish her a good night along with Canagan. Four of our guards walk away heading to the other two doors.
