‘Kyle seriously, I will kill you!’ Lia yelled at him as she and Kiara chased him. He chuckled as he entered the living room. ‘Kai! Where the fuck are you!?’ He yelled. Kiara also entered the room and tackled him. He yelped and quickly managed to throw her off, of him. Kiara groaned as she landed on the ground.
‘Kai!’ He yelled again as he got up. Lia ran towards him but he evaded her quickly. Kyle winked at Kiara and ran out of the house.
‘Get him!’ Lia yelled as she ran after him. Kiara got up and also ran after them. Thankfully it had stopped raining and slowly but surely the sun started to appear again. Pack members laughed as they saw Lia and their Luna chase Kyle.
Kyle ran towards the training grounds. Kai quickly came into view as he ran towards them with a shocked expression on his face.
‘Kyle! Seriously please don’t!’ Lia yelled as they got close to Kai. Dave was close behind Kai and was ready to fight. Dominic and Corethon looked at the group with raised eyebrows and the other Helix and Ttianas and the new females also came running.
Kyle came to a halt close to Kai and Kiara saw that Lia was about to tackle him. ‘Lia! Don’t!’ She yelled at her. Lia immediately stopped in her tracks as she realized why Kiara stopped her. If she were to tackle Kyle, the impact could be dangerous for her pup.
Kiara ran past her. Kyle was about to talk when she wrapped her arm around her neck and covered his mouth with the other. She opened her mind and made sure to stop him from linking everything to Kai. He groaned as he realized what she did.
‘What the fuck is going on!?’ Kai asked with wide eyes. Kiara looked at him and didn’t know what she could say that would explain this. She looked over her shoulder to Lia who also looked at her with worry in her eyes. Lia was begging her to keep her secret.
Kiara sighed as she looked back at Kai. ‘Ehm…’ She started. Eumon took a step forward as he looked at Lia. Kiara looked at him and saw him take a whiff. ‘Don…’ She started.
‘She's pregnant.’ Eumon said before she could stop him. Kiara sighed as she closed her eyes and released Kyle.
Lia whimpered and dropped her head. ‘What?’ Kai breathed. Kiara opened her eyes and looked at him. His eyes had changed and she didn’t know if it was because of anger or happiness. She slowly took a step towards Lia but never took her eyes from Kai. He also took a step towards Lia.
‘Lia is that true?’ He asked with a hardness in his voice. She whimpered again before she nodded. Kiara saw a tear slip out of his eye as he gulped and took another step towards Lia. ‘How long?’ He asked. Lia sobbed as she held her head low. When she didn’t answer a low growl escaped his throat as he walked towards her and grabbed her shoulders. Kiara wanted to intervene when she felt a hand on her own shoulder. She knew it was Dominic as sparks erupted in her shoulder.
Kiara looked over her shoulder. He slightly shook his head to say that she shouldn’t intervene.
‘How long, Emilia!?’ He yelled at her.
She flinched at his voice and whimpered a little again. ‘I got pregnant with the full moon.’ She said with a soft voice. He growled again as he released her arms, ran his hands through his hair and turned around so his back was towards her. ‘Who knew?’ He asked.
‘Kiara.’ Kai looked at her and she gulped when she saw the look in his eyes. Dominic growled as a warning and he immediately looked away from her. ‘She was the one who found out. I asked her not to tell you.’ Lia said.
‘Why? Why would you want to keep your pregnancy a secret from me? I’m your fucking mate, Emilia! It’s my pup too!’ Kai said as he turned back to her.
‘Because I know you don’t want pups and that you were going to react like this!’ She yelled as she looked up at him for the first time.
‘I never said that I didn’t want pups, Emilia.’ He said.
‘But every time I brought up the subject you avoided it. You never wanted to talk about it!’ Lia said as he sighed and ran his hands over his face.
‘By the gods, I have been a rogue most of my life, Emilia!’ He yelled at her. ‘Didn’t it ever occur to you that I’m afraid to have pups instead of not wanting them?’ He asked her.
‘I was abandoned when I was ten. My parents didn’t want me and they made that very clear when they left me in te woods with rogues nearby. Every time you started talking about having pups, I was reminded about what my parents did to me and I shut down. I never said that I didn’t want them, Lia.’ His voice had softened.
Lia didn’t know what to say and just looked at him. He sighed and walked towards her. Kai gently pulled her towards him and hugged her as he placed a kiss on her head. ‘I love you, Lia. Even though I’m scared, I will love this pup with everything that I have. You are going to be the most beautiful mother.’ He said as he pushed her away a little and wiped away her tears. Lia started crying even harder as he did that but this times it were tears of joy. ‘I love you too, Kai.’
Kiara sighed in relieve and smiled at the two. She absentmindedly leaned backwards and it wasn’t until she felt the sparks, that she knew she was leaning against Dominic.
He wrapped an arm around her waist and kissed the crook of her neck.
‘What the fuck happened between you two?’ Kiara and Dominic looked at Helix who gave them a questioning look.
‘Yeah, not so long ago it looked like you two hated each other and now Dominic is actually showing affection towards you, Ki.’ Kai said.
‘I might have forced him to release the hold he had on himself as I released mine.’ Kiara said slowly knowing what was about to happen.
‘Are you fucking crazy!?’
‘You have got to be kidding me!’
’Are you out of your mind!?”
The three Pure Lycans screamed at her as they got closer to her. Kiara sighed as she looked at the males. ‘Okay, why is that a bad thing?’ Lia asked as she looked at the group.
‘When a mate bond is created it progresses slowly so the two wolves can get used to it. If it is as powerful in the beginning as it is after they’re marked and mated it could be too overwhelming and it could drive them insane. With a Pure Lycan that is a hundred times more powerful. If the bond between them had been completed with marking and mating and they would have hold back their feelings it wouldn’t have been a big deal when they released it but because they haven’t and they never allowed their bond to from while they were still feeling it is bad. They could have lost their minds.’ Titanas said without taking his eyes off Kiara.
She knew they would probably have been mad but she didn’t know that could have happened. She could slap herself for not thinking about the consequences.
‘I’m sorry, I didn’t know that was something that could have happened.’ Kiara said.
Corethon sighed. ‘Well it could have. The mate bond is the most powerful bond that exists. If it had been a family bond there was no problem.’ He sighed again. ‘What’s done is done. You two are still of sound mind so there is no problem.’ He added as he looked back at them.
‘I am glad that you both are finally taking steps in the right direction though.’ Helix said with a small smile.
Kiara and Dominic both didn’t respond but gave him a small smile. They didn’t know what was going to happen with them. There was still much they need to work out and they both knew they still had to talk to each other about everything. This might have been a step in the right direction but they still have a long way to go and they both knew that. The smallest thing could change their progress and that was something that she didn’t want to happen. She hoped that Dominic felt the same way about it.
‘Ah you two haven’t talked about it.’ Titanas said with a small chuckle.
‘No.’ Kiara said as she moved away out of Dominic’s embrace.
‘And I’ve made you uncomfortable.’ Helix added.
‘Yeah.’ Dominic said as he rubbed his neck. Everyone chuckled a little.
At that moment, Portheus, Eumon, Ancyor, Ryan and Daniel walked towards them. Dominic looked at them. ‘How did it go?’
‘Great. We chatted and had some beers.’ Ryan said. Kiara chuckled a little as Dominic growled at him. Ryan shivered and lowered his head. ‘Apologies Alpha.’
‘They weren’t resisting so it went peacefully but you know how they are. They know exactly what to say to get under your skin.’ Daniel said. Dominic sighed and nodded in understanding.
‘And Socleus?’ Kiara asked her uncles and father. No one reacted and she knew that they didn’t want to talk about it. She sighed as she knew she was going to have to talk to him. Dominic laid a hand on her shoulder and squeezed it a little. She looked at him and gave him a small smile.
'I think it's time that the pack also heard what's going on around here and why they are back.' Dominic said as he looked at Kyle who nodded.
'I'll gather them immediately.' Kai said.
