“We’re going to find her” Jay said.
That was three days ago and my mom is still missing
Not that long ago I got her back and I already lost her again. Why is life so unfair.
I was adopted by an abusive male werewolf, tortured by him and his daughter, saved by my mate who ended up running away from me, and now my mom is missing.
Seriously, what did I ever do to deserve this?
I’ve racked my brain so many times since they told me my mom was kidnapped, for anyone who could have possibly had a reason to take her, but came up empty handed every time.
I know I shouldn’t but I’ve lost all hope, and I’m pretty sure everyone else has and they just don’t want me to know.
So here I am, locked up in my room, wasting away. Life couldn’t possibly get worse, and the never ending pain I felt couldn’t get worse either.
Suddenly there was a big bang downstairs, followed by several screams and more banging.
Out of sheer boredom. I decided to go down and check it out.
It’s probably just a rouge or something trying to attack. Maybe I’ll jump in front if it so it tares my head off, at least then the pain would stop.
So imagine my surprise when I finally got downstairs to find Madison being pinned down by two guards.
“I’m trying to help! I have information for you guys!” she screamed for her life, literally.
I knew those guards were seconds away from killing her and she knew it too. So I decided to be nice and help her since last time my life was in danger she helped me.
“Guys, let her go. She won’t hurt anyone.” I ordered the guards.
They instantly let her go and she shot me a grateful look.
I gestured for her to take a seat and she complied.
“So you say you have information, what is it?” I asked, getting right to the point.
“I know who has your mom.” she told me.
This caught my attention, along with everyone else’s in the room.
“Who?” I all but screamed.
“My uncle, he’s out for revenge.” Madison informed us.
We all shared a confused look which Madison caught.
“He’s furious that you guys killed my dad, he wants to get back at all of you by taking Liza’s mom. But that’s not all he has planned, and I don’t know where they are, he’s been calling me and telling me what he’s been doing, thinking I’m on his side.” she explained.
“What if you are on his side and this is all a set up?” I asked rhetorically.
Everyone in the room except for Ava and Jay nodded in agreement.
“I’m not! How could you think that when I proved last time we saw each other that I didn’t want to be bad? When I got help that pretty much saved Asher and you.” She growled.
“Don’t say his name!” I yelled.
Everyone in the room went silent and cowered away from me, I must have looked pretty scary right now.
“I think she’s telling the truth.” Ava spoke up, breaking the thick silence.
“It’s worth a shot Liza.” Jay added.
But what if she’s lying? She could tell us that my mom is in Canada or something and when we got there it could all just be a trap to kill us.
Maybe she’s the one mad at us for killing Jason.
But the sincere look on her face and the fact that Ava and Jay thought she was being honest was enough for me to change my mind.
We didn’t have any other information so I guess this was our only option.
“So what’s the plan?” I asked.
Ava and Jay shared a smile before we all got down to business.
“First order of business, Madison, you will be staying in the pack house and someone will always be watching you, just incase you actually are on their side.” Jay started, sounding more professional than I’ve ever heard him sound.
“You are to tell us whenever your uncle calls and when you answer, the phone immediately goes on speaker phone, so all of us can hear.” Jay said sternly to Madison.
She gave him one strong nod.
Next Jay turned to the guards to talk to them.
“Once we know exactly what this guy is up to and where he is, we go in and get Liza’s mom, that’s our first priority, and if we can, we capture everyone who’s involved in this and bring them to our jail.”
The guards all answered “Yes sir.” in unison and marched off to wherever they go when Jay excuses them.
“What do you want me to do?” I asked.
Jay shook his head and replied “You don’t have to do anything, just eat and rest.”
That’s ridiculous! She’s my mom, I should at least help save her! I hate when people treat me like I’m some delicate porcelain doll, I can handle myself, I do have powers after all.
Just as I was about to freak out Becca came skipping through the doors.
“I have so much to tell you about my mate!” she squealed happily as she took my hand and dragged me to her room.
I guess her happy, excited attitude rubbed off on me because soon I was smiling and giggling like her.
“Tell me everything.” I demanded when we sat on her bed.
“Okay, his name is Garrett, he’s the Alpha of a pack from out of town and he recently took in a stray guy named Jake.” She rambled.
I was smiling at her widely but when I heard the name Jake my smile dropped.
Something in my heart started aching when I heard the name.
“Tell me about Jake.” I pretty much demanded.
She gave me a questioning look but complied, “Garrett said that he took Jake in about two months ago, he found Jake in the woods in wolf form looking really unhealthy, and like he was running away from something.
“Garrett asked this Jake guy about his life and where he came from and everything but Jake didn’t give much away, so Garrett doesn’t know much about him.” Becca told me.
Every time she said the name Jake I felt a jab in my heart, I don’t even know the guy but it feels like I do, or I at least have some sort of connection to him.
“Hmm. When is Garrett going back to his pack?” I asked, changing the subject.
“He told me he’ll stay as long as I want him to, isn’t that cute!” she exclaimed.
I smiled and nodded.
“So Garrett and I talked some and he decided he wants to introduce me to his pack, and I said yes!” she exclaimed yet again.
This girl is just too loud.
I smiled, “That’s great.”
“Hey, why don’t you come with us?” she suggested.
No was the first thing that crossed my mind, but then I started thinking about this Jake guy. I would meet him if I went with them to meet Garrett’s pack. Then I could maybe figure out why I get a weird feeling every time Becca says his name.
“Sure, I’ll come.” I told her.
She let out a girly squeal, “This is gonna be so much fun!”
I laughed at her enthusiasm.
“So when are we leaving?” I asked, cutting off her squeals.
“Next week.” she replied.
So this time next week I’ll be able to meet this Jake guy. For the first time in what seemed like ages, I felt excited for something.
“Hey uncle Dave.” Maddison said calmly.
“Hey princess.” he responded.
She winced but went with the script she was to follow, “What have you been up to lately?”
Everyone leaned closer to the phone so they didn’t miss if he said anything about his plan.
“I’ve been keeping this filthy whore alive so that I can get on with the next part of my plan.” This Dave guy replied.
I clenched my fists into balls, that bastard had the nerve to call my mom a filthy whore. I’ll kill him.
“Good, what’s the next part of the plan?” Madison asked, looking around at everyone for a moment before training her eyes on the phone in her hand.
“I’m gonna drag this whore around the woods so that her pack can catch her sent and follow it to where we are. Then, once they’re here I’m gonna get all my buddies to attack, simple as that.” Dave informed her.
“You’ll never win, they have a strong pack!” Madison exclaimed, it sounded pretty believable too.
“I have a lot of buddies Maddie, over one hundred, so you don’t have to worry.” He reassured her.
Everyone exchanged worried looks, he had over a hundred while we only had fifty at the most.
“When are you gonna go ahead with this plan?” Madison asked, making everyone snap their attention back to her phone.
“In a week, probably during the night.” he told her.
“Okay, well good luck, I hope you get the revenge you wanted, love you, bye.” Madison said and hung up the phone.
“One hundred.” she whispered in horror.
Everyone started panicking and talking at the same time, it was turning into total chaos.
I stood up on the table and screamed “Shut up!” at the top of my lungs.
To my surprise everyone actually shut up and trained their eyes on me.
“Everyone calm down, we can ask some packs around here to help us out, and Becca’s mate is an Alpha of a pack somewhere out of town, they can help too.” I told everyone.
It seems like that was all the reassurance they needed because they all went into action, talking about which packs to ask and all that stuff.
“That was great, you’re a born leader.” Becca complimented me when I jumped down from the table.
“Thanks.” I said shyly, I’m not all that used to compliments.
“No problem girl.” she said, smiling at me.
“Maybe we should meet your mates pack a few days earlier so we can ask them if they can help us.” I suggested to Becca.
She nodded in agreement, “I’ll go call Garrett right now and tell him what’s going on.” She told me, and walked away as she pulled out her phone.
Well this turned out good, we’re going to end up winning the fight and I get to meet Jake a few days earlier.
