Chapter 17 - Freaking Hell
Dedicated to oddball, PenumbraMINE, and N.Y.O.B. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. I hope you are enjoying my book.
A/N: You will see Hailey's name as Kaley now. I messed up the twins. Kaley is Draco's mate and Hailey is Alec's mate. Hope this clears up any confusion. I will be going back and fixing the chapters before this one. Thanks for understanding.
“Why aren’t you healing?” Blaine asked, a look of confusion on his face as he wiped my hair back from my face.
“I don’t know why I’m not healing.” I looked in the corner of the room. “Angel and Constantine, you can show yourselves now.” The kids showed themselves, their eyes wide. “What do you know about my not being able to heal?”
Angel and Constatine looked at each other. “Uh, the babies are taking a lot of your energy.” I went to say something. “But, if you eat high protein meals, five times a day, you should heal faster. You also have been spelled by the ‘Ascended Man’, but we took his spell away. Someone stole an item of your clothes and used it for the spell,” Angel quickly said as she looked at her brother.
“We’ve spelled your room, so no one can enter unless it’s our family. We spelled it so no one can a take a single item of yours or they are spelled to come to one of us or the dragons.” Constantine shrugged his shoulders, a crooked grin on his face. “I figured it would be easier if they came to us before they stole anything.”
I started laughing, everyone in the room following me. “Alpha Summer, we are going to have to set your arm in here. I can’t knock you out for fear of harming your child, okay?”
I looked at him, my eyes wide in shock. “You can’t knock me out?” He shook his head no. “Kid’s can you do anything to knock me out carefully?” My kids smiled and nodded their heads. It was the last thing I remember seeing was their cheesy, sly grins on their faces. But, I would be forever grateful.
“Where did Alpha Summer go?” I heard my Goddess ask me.
I bowed to my Goddess “For some reason she’s not healing and she had to go to the clinic to get her arm reset. They are investigating to find out what happened, but the babies said to tell you ‘there are no more traitors at the moment but it was subject to change’.”
“Well, I’ve got to go back or I’ll be in trouble, not that I worry about it, but I don’t want my dragons to have to take my punishment for helping you all,” my Goddess, Timat, explained as I went over what she said to me. I went to ask her a question but knew I shouldn’t by the look in her eyes.
I bowed again. “Safe travels, my Goddess.” I went to one knee and waited until I felt the wind stop. Before she left, I could have sworn she had kissed my head and stroked my cheek, but maybe I was not thinking right.
I was about to walk to the clinic when I was teleported there by my mate. I noticed Askook, Dagon and Alex were with their mates. I walked over to Kaley and scooped her up in my arms, kissing her forehead. “Uh, why is the doctor on the outside of the room if your mom is hurt?” I asked as I looked at my mate. She was blushing a light red color. “Nevermind.” It was very awkward standing in the waiting room and still being able to hear what was going on in the room, well, until the babies set up a sound barrier.
Thank the Goddess for small children.
“Your welcome,, Draco,” the babies said, a smirk on their faces.
My eyes widened at the thought that they could read my mind. It wasn’t as if I was hiding anything, but I liked my thoughts to stay within my own mind. My thoughts were too wild and crazy at times to share with the class - which made me wonder if my mate and Alpha Summer could read my mind.
I looked down at my mate as she looked up at me. She nodded her head at my thought. “Wow, nothing strange about having your mind read, nothing at all.”
“Don’t worry, our family doesn’t read minds unless it’s an emergency. I understand wanting to have my thoughts as my own,” she softly said as smiled at me. I hugged her to me, waiting to see if Alpha Summer was okay, well, I had to think she was okay if she was having sex, or maybe not.
I was startled out of mind when I heard Alpha Summer scream, a scream of pain and not pleasure. My mate’s face paled, letting me know she could feel her mothers pain. The next thing we heard was furniture being moved and Blaine sticking his head out the door.
“Is everything okay?” I heard the doctor ask.
Alpha Blaine told the doctor no, asking for something for her pain. The babies disappeared in a flash, causing everyone of us to jump - me included. I knew it was serious if they moved as fast as they did.
The nurse walked into Alpha Summer’s room, a needle in her hand. “I don’t understand why my mom’s not healing. The babies can heal anything.”
“Mom was put under a spell and we need to break it after she has surgery,” Angel informed all of us.
“Oh, shit! The Ascended Man sacrificed over thirty people.” Kaley looked at me, not understanding what I meant. “He sacrificed witches, warlocks, weres’, and dragons - which means he absorbed their power.”
“Shit! It means it will be hard to break the spell, but I’m sure we can.” She smiled up at me. “Especially, since you will be picking up a few powers - one of which is mind-reading.”
My eyes bugged and my mouth dropped open. “Seriously?” Was all that came out of my mouth.
Kaley nodded her head. “You will also be able to teleport. I don’t know what other powers you will gain, but I know it will compliment mine. You will get power from me and the Moon Goddess.”
“Wow,” I said, wonderment in my voice. “Wait! Why will I get power from the Moon Goddess?”
“Because I’m her granddaughter,” I heard say as I blinked my eyes, trying to soak all the information in. I nodded my head and kissed my mate, pulling her into my lap once I sat down.
“When will I get my first power?” I asked her as I played with the hem of her shirt.
“No one knows. It will come on suddenly. Sometimes it hurts and other times it doesn’t. The bigger the power the bigger your pain will be, well,, unless my grandmother thinks you have had too much pain in your life”
I nodded my head and tucked my head into her neck, pulling her back to my front as close as I could. My life had changed so much in a day, but I couldn’t have been happier. My mate found me. I was afraid I wasn’t assigned a mate, but my Goddess and Kaley’s Goddess had other plans, plans I was ever so thankful for.
“Did the Moon Goddess tell you about our children...How a dragon and a werewolf’s children were going to be possible?” I asked as I looked at her, so many thoughts going through my mind. I wanted children but I didn't want them if it meant I would loose my mate. I just got her and now I was scared shit-less.
I bit the inside of my cheek to keep from crying. Oh, yes, a dragon crying was almost impossible, but from the way my heart was slowly breaking. I was panting hard, scared to death I could lose her. I knew I was close to crying. Kaley didn't know dragon customs. If we couldn't reproduce I would have to take a mistress and it wasn't something I could do to her. It was something I would never do to her. If we couldn't have children then my brother Dagon would be king and I would be the beta, not that I cared really. I just didn't want to cause my mate harm or make her sad because we couldn't have children or I was ordered to take a mate by the council.
Yeah, never going to happen
I tried to calm myself down, knowing I was sending my thoughts straight into her mind. I waited for her to say something.
Don't be silent.
"She did," Kaley quietly confirmed my question. She took a huge breath of air and blew it out. "I..."
