Several days have passed since Amara and I sealed the deal. She's officially my true mate and Luna and so far she's catching on pretty quick. Hunter and Wyatt have been helping with her training and Dakota has been teaching her things she should know about our pack. Though things between us are blissful, everything else is a complete nightmare. We have been seeking answers regarding the attacks we have been getting from, and none of the other packs have any idea as well. They've had several attacks at the same time we had them, but not as frequent as ours. So that has led me to believe that we are the target and not any other pack.
I slammed my fist on the table out of frustration and anger. Three cubs were severely injured because two rogues have managed to sneak in undetected early this morning and if it wasn't for Wyatt, who just so happened to be passing by, those young ones could have died. "I've been thinking, what if, they aren't coming from outside our borders. What if, they're already inside?" Hunter asked. I looked at him thoughtfully. "If that's the case, shouldn't we at least be able to capture their scent?" Dakota asked. Wyatt scratched his chin, trying to gauge every possibility. "Unless, they have learned to mask their scent while they're on their human form," he answered. "Is that even possible? Only alphas have that kind of ability," Dakota countered. That's true. As far as I know, only alphas can mask their scent both when they're in their human and wolf form.
"I'm out of ideas and answers, that's the truth." I sighed pinching the bridge of my nose. "But, I feel like Hunter could be right. We're not sure how it's possible, but we need to cover every angle," I continued and the three of them nodded in agreement. "For now, all we can do is to observe and double our efforts patrolling. I'll do some more tracking later. Let everyone know if you find anything suspicious," I said before heading out to pick Amara up. She and Dakota moved out of their dorm room two days after we became official mates. It took a lot of convincing, but after much deliberation and several conditions, she finally agreed and one condition she was adamant about was to continue studying. I knew that was not up for discussion, so I've allowed her to go back to school on the condition that she can't walk and go somewhere and anywhere without a pack member with her. It's not that I think she's too fragile and defenseless on her own, but with the rogues we're encountering, it'll be too dangerous for her to be left alone.
There's also this nagging feeling at the back of my head that she could be the main target, though it seems farfetched because there's no other reason but the idea that they want to get to me. I kept replaying the time when we were attacked at the lake and it seemed to me that they were trying to distract me to get to her. If they wanted to kill her, the rogue that bit her could've easily done so, but it deliberately let her go after the bite pierced through her skin. I'm almost certain that they wanted her to turn, but for what?
I parked right outside Amara's building. She won't be out for another ten minutes, so I decided to close my eyes while I wait. I've been getting less sleep since the attacks began and much more since she moved in. It's become our ritual to either end the night or start the day with sex, and I'm not in any way, shape, or form complaining about it. In fact, sex with her is always the best part of the day. My eyes flew open when I caught her scent. She just got out of the building, but she wasn't alone and the person who's with her is not a member of my pack. She's talking to a tall well-built guy with blond hair. He wasn't doing anything in particular except to occasionally smile and look at Amara as she talked, but I can't help but feel irritated by him.
I stepped out of my car and leaned by the passenger door, obviously making my presence known. Once she saw me, a huge grin appeared on her face. She said something to the guy she came out with before walking towards me. "Hi!" She cheerfully said standing on her toes to peck me on the lips. I wrapped an arm around her waist to I deepen the kiss. "Hi, ready to go?" I asked tucking a few strands of hair behind her ear. "Yup!" She answered before walking around to the passenger's side. "Who's the guy you were talking to?" I asked as I pulled out of the parking space. "Oh, that's my classmate, Eric. We were assigned as partners for our next project," she answered.
My brows shot up at the news. So, meaning to say, they'll be spending a lot of time together. It's strange how annoyed I'm getting just by thinking about it because it's not jealousy I'm feeling. It's something else I can't shake off. There's something I'm vibing about that guy that's agitating the wolf in me and if that's what I'm sensing then chances are, he's not someone who can be trusted. I have never been paranoid about anything, but I need to make sure that this guy is safe for Amara to be around with. He's probably not from here too, so it would be best to try to check him out from time to time not because I want to be a dick or be too possessive, but I just need to do this for everyone's safety that's all.
