I had no idea what was going to happen to me. I had no clue where I was and the only thing, I cared about was Grace. Dylan’s anger was doubling by the second through the mate bond, I knew his anger was just for these men taking me and Grace, but he still had no idea that I was carrying his child.
It didn’t take an idiot to know that he would be furious at me for putting myself at risk, I just hoped that nothing would happen to me or my child. Although I knew that Dylan would still be upset that I put myself at risk when I knew.
A damp smell filled my nostrils and I scrunched my nose up in disgust. It reeked in here; I hope Grace wasn’t kept in this disgusting place. The men who were holding on to my arms let me go and I looked around this dark place. Dylan could still see where I was, and I could hear his growls. Out of the shadows came Adam, with a sadistic smile on his face he came closer to me and tucked a piece of hair behind my ear for me. I shrugged him off and gave him a look of disgust.
“Now now Scarlett don’t flinch away from me like that.” His voice made me shiver in disgust.
I looked around for Grace and Adam signalled to his men. That’s when I saw her. Grace. She looked absolutely terrified but there seemed to be no harm done to her which I was incredibly thankful for. Grace spotted me and the tears which were falling down her pale cheeks seemed to stop and the reaction I wanted from Grace I didn’t get. In fact, I got the exact opposite.
“Mummy, what are you doing here? Go away, go away Mummy!” Grace screamed out.
I took a step forward to Grace, my instincts telling me something was off. Grace shook her little head, making me stop in my tracks.
Something wasn’t right. My head spun around just in time to see Adam, who grabbed my hand and pulled me closer to him. I tried to get out of his grasp, but he held on tighter. Warning bells went off in my head, I couldn’t do anything to harm the life growing inside of me.
“Aww, your daughter is trying to protect you. Too bad she is a little bit too late.” Adam said shrugging his shoulders.
His men standing around were smirking and I felt an uneasy feeling settle in my stomach. What did Adam mean? Adam signalled to his men again and suddenly I had 3 men surrounding me. I looked around at them trying to figure out how to get passed them. I could hear Grace’s pained voice screaming, “Please don’t hurt my mummy. Leave her alone.”
I wanted nothing more than to rush to Grace and tell her that everything will be alright whilst hugging her. But taking one look at these men I knew that I would not be able to do that. One man grabbed my arms whilst the other grabbed my legs. I squirmed trying to free myself from their grasps.
I was placed rather harshly on the floor but lying on top of this large rectangular piece of metal. My heart was racing faster now, and I prayed that Dylan was coming soon because I had a bad feeling that this wasn’t going to end well. The other man tied my hands and legs up tightly whilst the other two men were still pinning me down. Once they had finished, they left and Adam was standing there with a sadistic smile on his face and his eyes showing something I couldn’t quiet grasp but I was pretty sure how this was going to end.
I tried to wriggle around but the rope burned my skin. Adam stood above me and said, “Ah poor Scarlet. I don’t think you know what I do to girls like you, girls with mates. I make you and your mate suffer before ending your life with one strike of my knife. Your mate will die soon after and how will that look to the world? I managed to kill their King and Queen. People will fear me and fear me they shall.”
I gasped in horror. Tears started pouring down my cheeks. I begged for Dylan to come quickly. I turned to see Grace who was tied up on a chair crying as well.
“Oh I figured your daughter should watch how much I will enjoy making you suffer.” Adam whispered in my ear and I sucked in a breath.
He was a monster, a cruel and heartless monster. I hope that someone would kill him if I couldn’t. Adam looked at me one more time before proceeding to take off my jeans and taking a hot metal rod from a fire place.
Horror dawned on me when I realised what Adam was going to do to make me suffer and I screamed. He was going to burn me right in front of my daughter. I struggled with all my strength to get out of this situation. I even spat at Adam and cursed him, but he just laughed. I screamed and cried and begged Adam to stop but he just laughed at my attempts to escape.
It seemed like hours before he had gotten everything ready and he smirked at me when I realised what he was doing. He was holding two hot metal rods and my eyes widened in horror.
“NO PLEASE.” I screamed in horror. I couldn’t believe this was going to happen to me. I never expected that this would be the way I go. I realised that this would kill my baby but I hoped my child would survive even though it wasn’t very likely, I just couldn’t deal with the fact that I would never be able to see my children grow up and that I was the reason that my child will die.
Adam started slowly coming towards me with the hot metal rods. I could hear Grace screaming but all I couldn’t concentrate on was the rods coming towards me.
Suddenly, everything seemed to go in slow motion. The windows were smashed, and wolves came rushing in. The metal rods were snatched from Adam’s hands. I saw Dylan’s wolf with a murderous expression on his face, but he left Adam and rushed over to me. He seemed to say something, and I was untied by the hands by one male soldier and I untied my legs myself. Quickly putting on my jeans, I knew why Dylan couldn’t untie me himself. He was rushing over to Grace who was heavily protected by Adam’s wolves. I wanted to shift and help but shifting whilst you are pregnant can harm your baby, so I decided against it.
Instead I picked up a metal rod and started hitting the wolves that were going to attack me. Someone grabbed me from behind but just as I was about to hit them, my metal rod was taken out of my hands by a wolf. I turned around ready to fight whoever it was but was so relieved when I saw the pack doctor. She rushed me out of the war zone, and I was placed into a car.
Realisation hit me when I was in the car which was heavily guarded by warriors. Dylan must know about my pregnancy, especially if the pack doctor was here. A few minutes later, the door opened, and Grace was rushed inside. I sighed with relief and grabbed Grace crushing her in a hug. She cried on my shoulder whilst I comforted her.
“It’s okay baby, you’re safe now.” I whispered.
A sharp pain shot through me and I winced. It was from Dylan. I needed to go there and see if he was alright. My wolf was begging me to go, we both were worried for Dylan. I looked at Grace who had worn herself out by crying so she had fallen asleep. I carefully placed her on the back seats and opened the car door. The warrior looked at me and shook his head, trying to put me back in the car but I stopped him.
“My mate is in danger and I’ll be dammed if you stop me from going to him.”
I didn’t even let him answer as I rushed off into the war zone, my eyes frantically searching for my mate……
