Chapter seventeen - I know why

*Kiara's POV*

I looked up at Calvin in utter shock and confusion.

"How is that even possible? I am so confused right now. You're their son? Their actual son. I mean now that I think about it you do kinda look like Kenneth...wait"


"Doesn't that mean you were born after they adopted the twins?"


"Well then, even after all that, shouldn't you still be the Alpha? I mean, that's the rule, isn't it? The Alpha position should go to the first born child."

"First born son actually and how is it a rule if it isn't written?"

I growled at his answer. It wasn't only men who could be Alphas. Gender didn't matter, in fact, gender should be the very last thing when considering an Alpha. Nonetheless, I replied him.

"It's an unwritten rule, obviously"

"True but..."

I stopped talking and I felt a hard pounding in my head. It was True. She was angry at something but I didn't get why she had to give me a headache.

"What do you want?" I mentally asked her.

"I'd like to talk to our mate" she replied in my head.

"Maybe when you stop making my head ache"

"Alright" she replied reluctantly.

She stopped whatever she was doing and the headache was gone.

"Thank you" I said to her

"Yeah,yeah whatever"

"Now, what were you saying about talking to Cal?"

"I just want a word with him"


"Please" she begged

"I said no"

"60 seconds. That's all I need"

"Ughhhh...okay. 60 seconds"

"Thank you"

"58 seconds left"

"Oh, right"

I felt the familiar tingling sensation from my toes straight to my head as True took over just like she always did. Not my whole body, just my mind and then my eyes would change colour.

"Kiara, are you okay?" Calvin asked.

"Guess what, it's not Kiara here" True replied

"Hmm, what's your name, little wolf?"

"One, I'm not a little wolf. Two, I'm True..."

"Lady True..."

"Shut up. I'm talking. Now, as I was saying..."

"45 seconds" I mentally reminded her.

"Okay, okay" she replied.

"You made a statement that really pissed me off."

"Whatever it is I'm really sorry but would you be so kind as to tell me what it was"

"I was coming to that" she replied through gritted teeth.

"Okay then"

"30 seconds left" I said

"Ughhh" she groaned. Then she continued, "Kiara said that the Alpha position should go to the first born child but you said first born son meaning that you don't believe that a woman can be an Alpha and that is what makes me very pissed" she said while fuming.

"I didn't mean it that way. I'm very much aware that a woman can be an Alpha. A smart, beautiful, dedicated, headstrong woman. One just like you"

He brought his hand to the side of our face and his touch brought shivers to our body. True took the opportunity and brought our lips to his. Wait...she was kissing him!? He was my mate. I should've been the one kissing him not her. But then, he was her mate too. And they were my lips, so I was kissing him. No! She was kissing him, not me.

I started fuming and took control again. True tried to regain control but I blocked her out. After I did that, I wasted no time in stopping the kiss. I wouldn't kiss him in anger. Not like this. Our first kiss would be special. With both of us in our actual minds.

"You're back" he said as soon as I broke away.

"Yeah, so?" I said still fuming.

"Well, it's just..."

"I really don't want to talk about it right now so, can we just move on?"

"You're an Alpha's descendant, aren't you?"

"Part of what my mother said"

"It was obvious though. Only Alphas and Lunas can show their wolf form without shifting"

"Oh, I've always been able to do that. I always thought it was normal."

"Wait, but if you're an Alpha's daughter, then what pack are you from?"

The gears and wheels in my brain started to turn furiously. Honestly, it wasn't an easy task. After a while, I sat down on the bed to restart my thinking. Then it all started to make sense. One thing led to another and all the pieces of the jigsaw started to come together.

"That's it! That's why he had them...that bastard! But why? Oh, yes, I have it! I know!"

"What the hell are you saying?"

"Where's Kenneth?"

"I think he's having a meeting with the Luna, Beta and Gamma."

"Where? I need to see him"

"But wh..."

"Just take me. Everything will make sense once we get there"

He took my hand and understanding my need for speed, raced us down the halls until we got to his office. The doors were shut and certain sounds could be heard from inside meaning their meeting was still taking place.

"They're still talking"

"Do I look like I care?"

"Well I thought I'd just point know what? Nevermind"

"I am really sorry. I literally feel like shit right now but I will make it up to you. I promise"

It was true. I did feel like shit but it wasn't my fault. I just wanted to get this over with and now I had a make up gift to plan.

"I know, I'm sorry too. So, shall we enter"

"Yup, let's go"

He opened the door and all four faces looked at us in shock. Wow, their Gamma was a woman. Incredible. I never would've thought of that.

"What is the meaning of this?" Kenneth asked us.

"Kenneth calm down. I think my son has finally come to his senses and now wants to tell us he's rejecting his mate. Right dear?" Melody asked.

"Wrong mother. Actually, Kiara, my mate and my girlfriend has something she'd like to share with you and father. Something about a coup?" Calvin replied.

They all looked at us with wide eyes. Apparently, they all knew what I was talking about. I looked to Calvin and then to the door. He understood my message immediately and shut the door and locked it. I mouthed a "thank you" to him and he mouthed back a "you're welcome"
He gave me a smile and I felt my confidence growing. I took a deep breath and began

"Three years ago, my father was murdered. Why? I don't know. The next year, my elder brother was murdered. Why? I don't know. The next day after that, my mother was murdered. Why you may ask? I don't know. I found my mate a few weeks after that. The next month, my mate was murdered. Why? I don't know. Actually, I didn't know until right now. My mother came to me in a dream and made a particular statement that was of no sense to me. Calvin here, further explained that statement to me..."

"So, is that what you've come to tell us? That you had a dream?" Melody said

"Yes and no. Pay attention Melody."

"How dare you!? You will respect me! I am your Luna!"

"Fuck you, bitch. You are not my Luna and certainly not this pack's Luna either. Now, as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted,
My mother called me an Alpha's daughter and you have been in rule for years now without end. Calvin explained to me that it was obvious because only Alphas or Lunas and their descendants could show their wolves without shifting fully. I know Kenneth. I know why you killed my family.
