Envy’s POV

A few hours later…..

“I think I’m going to head down to Lexington’s office and see what I can figure out about their business. He wants me involved in it. He told me,” I say to no one in particular.

“Okay, baby girl, I will be down in a bit. I need to make some phone calls about Amber,” Draven replies.

“Do you want me to come with you since I might need to know some stuff also for Canagan,” Elizabeth asks?

“Okay, daddy, that sounds good. Um, sure, but it is unnecessary. I know how much you like to decorate, and this place needs some of that for sure. It is all manly, not really inviting,” I reply, shrugging my shoulders.

“I will come with you. I do not trust that PA of his,” Elizabeth says with disgust in her voice.

“Sounds good to me. Let’s head down. Hopefully. the guys will be done soon,” I remark

As we head down the elevator, I can’t help but smile at how happy I am right now with Lexington. I really do not look forward to the coronation at all. I really hate to dress up and I have to for that and, of course, our mating ceremony. I have so much to learn from that, about pack rules, how to run a pack, not to mention all the Queen duties I will have. This is all so much at once. I am a bit overwhelmed. I will just have to figure it all out.

As we step off the elevator, Eli grabs my elbow to stop me. I look at her confused.

“I hear Kelly talking to someone. Don’t you hear them talking low?” Eli asks.

“Girl sorry I was in my own world I am not used to this wolf’s hearing just yet,” I reply

We slowly and quietly walk towards the two women talking more like gossiping. I am sure of how low they are talking. As we get closer to the corner of the walkway and listen in on the two talking. As soon as Lexington’s name is mentioned, I see Eli grab her phone and pull it out to I assume record them.

I, on the other hand, can feel the heat creeping up my neck as I am getting fucking pissed off.

“Oh, shit, didn’t I tell you what happened before Lex left on his trip?” Kelly asks.

“No, we haven’t had time to catch up. What happened? I know you have been wanting more from him. Did he finally give in to your seduction?” Unknown woman says.

“He sure did give in. I went up to the penthouse, and he was sleeping when I got there. I was only in my lace thong and bra. When I went to walk up to him, he grabbed my arms and pulled me into him. He leaned down and kissed me on my neck while he unhooked my bra to just throw it across the room. He has some rough hands, that’s for sure. They ran over my nipples and everything. Then he picked me up and threw me onto the bed. He literally yanked off my thong. Then he undressed and had his way with me for hours. There was nothing we did not try. I swear that man knows what he is doing in the bedroom. He loves it rough. He said he hates being romantic and gentle,” Kelly lies.

“Holy shit girl, that is hot as hell. What are you two going to do now that he is back?” Unknown girl asks.

“He said when he got back he was going to make an announcement about us so that everyone would know,” Kelly says, sounding so sure.

I stand there boiling mad. I know I can’t call Lexington since they blocked the conference rooms from calls. I want to go in there and beat the fuck out of her. The problem is, I have to make sure that is not what really happened. I know he told me about her showing up when he was asleep and he threw her out of the room. I believe him, but I want him to be here when I confront her on this lie. I have a better plan now that I think about it. She is going to regret ever lying about her being with Lexington. I think to myself.

“That’s great, but who are the women that were with him earlier? I saw he had his arm around one of them like they were a couple.” Unknown woman asks.

“Oh, that is no one important. He told privately that he is just using her to get to her father since he apparently has loads of old money that he wants,” Kelly replies.

Elizabeth goes to walk around the corner as I see her tense up. I grabbed her arm, holding her back. I motioned for her to follow me back some so they can’t hear us speaking.

“I am going to rip her arms and legs off her body, then her head will be last so she feels the pain before she dies,” Eli says with so much venom in her voice.

“Look, Eli, that has to wait. You know you can not go around killing humans. Also, you got the conversation on your phone, correct? I also see she was busy today researching dad. That fucking bullshit just pisses me off. But I have a plan. She is going to regret ever lying to whoever that is. And for that person to believe her, that is just sad,” I say through gritted teeth.

“We need to just go to his office and ignore them. But I want to scare the fuck out of them, so let’s be really quiet and walk up on them and past them so they do not know that we heard anything. But walk past giving her and the unknown death glare,” I saw with a smirk on my face.

“Damn you Envy, why can’t we just handle this now and get it over with? I always wondered why you played with people the way you did when we were growing up. I thought only predators did that to their prey. So now that you are a wolf, I can see why you did it without even realizing it. But fine, I will abide by what you want since you are my Luna and Queen. This can not wait for long. Zeva is fighting me to come out and take care of this person,” Eli says, deadpanning.

As we around the corner and closer to Kelly’s desk, I see that they would have never known we were there as they both have their backs to us talking. I shake my head to myself and clear my throat. I want to see what they do.

They both jump when I clear my throat and stammer about. Kelly grabs the unknown’s arm and squeezes it, looking at her like the mouse that has been caught in the trap. I glare at her and the unknown female.

“Oh, hello there again Ms. Is there something that I can do for you? Lex isn’t back from the conference call yet. Do you want me to go and see how long they will be for you?” Kelly asks in a sickeningly sweet voice.

I know she is trying to make it look good.

“I know he isn’t finished with the conference call yet. And I do not need you to go in and bother Mr. Bledig. Isn’t that the name he specifically told you to call him and not by his first name?” I say as I cock my head to the side looking at her.

“Yes, Ma’am, that is I am sorry I misspoke,” Kelly replies sheepishly.

“And who might you be?” I ask the unknown woman.

“Excuse me, Ms. I am sorry I am Darlene,” she replies, reaching out to shake hands.

“Good afternoon Darlene, is there a reason you are here and not at your position working?” I reply as I shake her hand firmly.

“Um, I was just going to ask if Mr. Bledig is back, and apparently, he is. So I will go now. Nice to meet you, ma’am,” Darlene replies as she hurries off to wherever she belongs.

I look at Kelly while I head to Lexington’s office. I see that she is cowering a bit as she slinks into her office chair.

“Did you overhear what we were talking about?” Kelly asks.

“No, we did not. Was is it something that you wanted to inform Ms. Reznik of?” Eli asks while glaring at her.

“Oh no, we were just talking about a party that is coming up is all. Nothing of importance,” Kelly shoots off.

As Eli and I walk into Lexington’s office, I look around and notice that there is a strong smell of perfume in the room. Stronger than it was when we left to go up to the conference room earlier. I squinch up my nose and look over at Eli, noticing she is doing the same thing. I shake my head and close the door to the office.

I reach into my back pocket and pull out my phone. Eli looks at me with a questioning look.

“What? I have to order some candles and spray to get that nasty bitch’s perfume out of here. You and I both know she sprayed that shit all in here. That is some of the cheapest shit out there,” I say

I look down at my phone and pull up my Amazon app. I sit down at the desk. I know I can get this here in like an hour, so less. I look through the app and find the apple cinnamon candles I want, along with some spray that is the same scent. I click order and relax, sitting my phone down on the desk.

“Please tell me you did not go overboard on ordering that stuff,” Eli asks, rolling her eyes.

“Not in the least just ordered 6 of each is all,” I say back with a huge smile on my face as I laugh.

“For fuck’s sake Envy. Lexington doesn’t need all that,” Eli states.

“Who said anything about needing? I want that smell out of this office and for the future, I want to have access to keep that smell out till she is gone,” I reply flatly.

Eli plops down on the couch, putting her feet up on the coffee table to relax. She looks around the office and she gets a huge grin on her face. I know that look. She wants to change something here if not a lot of things.

“No way are you going to try to redo this office, as well as the penthouse. You take your ass to Canagan’s office and change what you want to change in there,” I say to her.

“Awe come on Envy, please talk Lexington into letting me spruce up this place for you both,” Eli says with puppy dog eyes.

“Nope, no way Jose. I actually like the decor here. We only need to move the furniture around a bit to add me a desk in here is all,” I say as I look around the office, smiling.

“Fine, I get it. I just wanted to make it both of yours and not just his,” Eli says, shrugging her shoulders.

“Look, I don’t want to go around changing everything. He has every right to have things that he likes as well. It is a compromise as far as I am concerned,” I tell her.

I go to open up his laptop to see if there is anything I can review, but he has it password protected. I close the lid back down and slump back into his seat. Guess I will have to get him to unlock it for me later. I thought I would be able to get some stuff figured out and be ahead of the game. But guess I thought wrong.

“Damn Eli, do you think they are going to be on that conference call for much longer?”

“Girl, I wish I knew. I tried to message Canagan, but he has not replied.”

“Oh, then he didn’t tell you that they have the conference rooms blocked for calls or anything so people can not get information when they are making the deals.”

“UGH, no he did not. Guess it slipped his mind.”

“So, what do you want to do for dinner tonight? I know Lexington won’t care what we do.”

“Hmmm, not sure, maybe get something that is known for this state, you know we like trying new things.”

“True, but I am not even sure what they eat in this state. Guess we could do some research.”

“Yea, we can do that, so we will already know when we tell the guys. I know Canagan told me that they have really good food here locally.”

“We also need to go check out the clubs they own. To see what they are all about. I think that will be interesting for sure.”

“Oh yea I can get one of my outfits I have not had a chance to wear on this trip yet,” Eli says, wiggling her eyebrows.

“Oh, mercy, I feel for Canagan on this. I know he has no idea how you like to dress all girly at times. I can’t wait to see the look on his face. Wonder if he will even let you leave the house?”

“There is no way he is going to stop me. I am not some damsel in distress I can handle my own.”

“True dat, but does he know that? Pretty sure they don’t know just yet. I saw the look of shock on their faces when you grabbed Kelly earlier. It took everything in me not to bust out laughing at the interaction.”

“I had so much fun doing that. I can not wait till she gets a piece of your mind. That is going to be priceless.”

“Eh, she has it coming, especially after the lies she told Darlene earlier. I really can’t wait for Lexington to hear the recording. He already told me about what happened that night. She walked in on him sleeping and grabbing her arm right, but that was it.”

“Oh, fuck, I thought she was lying about the whole thing. What the fuck is wrong with that dizzy bitch?”

“Yea, he was sleeping fully clothed, and she went in all dressed in panties and bra. When he woke up, he grabbed her arm and practically threw her out of the room, and told her she was not allowed in the penthouse. She tried to get him to do some stuff, but he told her it won’t ever happen. I know I have not told you word for word what he told me but that is the gest of it.”

“Fuck, you would think that girl would see she isn’t getting him. Oh well, she will learn here very, very soon. And I am going to be laughing my ass off.”

“Okay, let’s do this research. Grab your phone and I will grab mine.”
