Twenty four

I gulped down nervously as he stopped right outside the pack borders. I looked around us for his pack members but I didn't see any of them, though I can feel their presence. They are blending in the shadows so perfectly that even my wolf eyes can not see them, and I have night vision.

I jumped from his back when he lowered his body to the ground. I tugged his t-shirt down which has raised when I was sliding down his soft furs.

I waited for him to shift back but all he did in his wolf form was circling around me, rubbing his fur all around my body. I have a theory as to why he is doing it so I raised my hand and sniffled and just as I have guessed I have no smell. I gasped, my eyes widening.

I wanted to ask how he can do that but I don't think he'll answer me right now.

Climb on the tree, mate. We won't take long. I jumped a little when he said through mind link. It will take me time to adjust to the fact that mates can mind link each other. He took a few steps back and then disappeared into the forest.

I gulped thickly. They won't take long to kill all the pack, he has stated. I shaking gripped the tree that is closest to me and which is safe to climb up, I started to make my way up the sky-reaching trees. I gasped as I looked down, from here I can see the whole pack. The moonlight is illuminating the houses, creating shadows. It kind of look creepy the way shadows moved.

My hands shook as I watched the pack gathered together for some celebration. The party is on full swing, the teenagers are dancing together, adults are laughing and enjoying their talks in groups, kids are all running here and there, their mothers scolding them to behave.

I closed my eyes, feeling my heart ache for them. They don't know this will be their last celebration on this earth. Soon, they'll become just a pack who was destroyed by the Rogue Alpha.

Goddess, what should I do? I want to help them but can I take on the bloodthirsty pack all by myself? I don't know about his pack but just the thought of hurting him left the bad taste in my mouth. I opened my eyes to watch my mate, maybe he'll change his mind and back off because I'm there? The chances are unlikely. If he was afraid of me watching the bloodbath caused by him then he wouldn't have brought me here.

But the question is why did he brought me here to meet his pack when they're going to attack a pack? What does he want me to see? Does he want me to see how he kills the pack? Or does he want me to see what a monster my mate is?

More than that I'm curious behind the reason he hunts the packs down, if there is any.

My eyes started to sting with unshed tears as his pack surrounded the other pack from each side, ready to pounce on them and tear them apart. I can't see them properly but I can see their shadows from up here. I can see all those things which the others can't see.

Their strategy this time is different from the one they used to attack my pack. During my pack attack, they had attacked together. This time they are spread out and creating a barrier from each side, making it impossible for any pack members who will try to escape.

My mate and his pack tilted their heads up in the sky and let out a haunting war cry together. Just as they finished howling they ran off in full speed, tearing the throats of the members who are guarding the territory. By now the members who were celebrating are on full alert. Their high ranking warriors rushed to check who is calling the war on them. They are willing walking, to be precisely running towards their end.

I gripped the tree branch tightly, my hand paling with the force I'm gripping the branch. Maverick ran full speed towards the Alpha of the pack. The Alpha crouched down and shifted, ready to fight the enemy off. By now he is well aware who is attacking their pack and he knows he or his pack won't survive but still, he fought for his pack.

Maverick and the Alpha both crashed into each other, sending the other flying few steps back due to the force of them clashing. Maverick growled his excitement and jumped on the Alpha, biting his shoulder before jumping back, letting the other Alpha stand up again. The Alpha stood up, whimpering in pain.

I sucked in a breath. He is playing with the Alpha, he is not giving him easy death. He is going to give him a painful death.

He once again jumped on the Alpha, biting the other shoulder and this time he tore a handful of his chunk. The Alpha howled in pain. The sound of painful screams and the growls were the only thing ringing in the air. I closed my ears with my hands, it was too much for me to hear, too much for me to handle the cry of innocent women and child.

I sobbed softly as my eyes took in the scene of one of the pack member of my mate tore the throat of the child no more than a year old. Goddess, how heartless they are? Don't their insides churn seeing the tears in the eyes of the innocent children, or hear their cry for mercy?

My whimpers got louder seeing the murder of innocent members. I looked at the Alpha who is still getting toyed by my mate. He doesn't have any fight left in him, he is badly injured but his pride is fueling him to get up to fight. His fur is matted with blood and at this rate, he'll die in an hour or so.

Please kill him. Please. I whimpered through the mind link. I can't bear to see this anymore. Maverick stiffened for a second before he pounced on the Alpha, ripping his throat out. The remaining pack members, who are only handfuls left let out a painful howl at the loss of their Alpha but the one howl that stood out the most was the howl of a wolf who lost a mate.

The Luna of the pack is still alive, fighting with one of the she-wolves of my mate's pack. She didn't get to mourn the death of her mate for long because she has to fight for the pack. It was the lost cause, she knows that but she'll fight for her pack till the last breath, which wasn't far seeing the state she is in.

In a swift moment, the she-wolf killed the Luna. One by one the remaining pack members fell to the ground, dead.

By now I was full-on sobbing. Now that the fight is over, there is nothing but silence surrounding us except the sound of my sobs. Maverick rushed to the tree I'm parched on and yelped at me to get down.

Through blurry eyes, I managed to get down. Mavericks lapped around me. As he tried to lick my face I stepped back. How I can I accept my mate's caress when his mouth is dirty with innocent peoples blood.

His wolf whined sadly at my rejection. I felt bad but I won't let him lick me with others blood dripping down his mouth. Especially the blood of innocents.

"Why?", I cried out. The plan of giving him his space flew out of the window. I want to know why he kills the pack. Why kills the innocent members.

"Why?", I said more firmly this time. Maverick growled at his pack members whom I am yet to see. I don't know what he is commanding them but the sound of paws hitting the grounds sounded in my ears. All of his pack members left, leaving me alone with my mate who shifted back in his human form to give me answers.
