Chapter 28 - Green Eyed Monster
Dedicated to oddball, Jo Jo Sprout, PenumbraMINE, and N.Y.O.B. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.
“Ours?” A man asked as tried to push himself up from the ground. “Ours,” he said again, looking between me and my mate.
“This pack is ours. She is the luna of the pack and I expect everyone to treat her as you would me. Nothing gets out to our enemies, understand?” He asked as he looked at each of them in the eyes.
“I understand,″ one of the dragons stated as he turned our backs to check on what everyone was doing.
“She’s been through hell.” Angel said with angry tears in her eyes. “She can’t work anywhere in the castle. He’s programmed her to open up to him every hour. He wanted to catch all the information we had on them. We will need to keep her in a cell until all of this is over with, do you understand?” I shook my head at the sad smile on her face. I walked back to the other women. I knew they would have to go to the cells too. We needed to find out how he was spelling everyone.
I stood up and walked into my mates arms. “Take them all to the cells, but make sure they are separate, okay? Oh, and do not talk to them or look into their eyes until this mess is done with, go it?” Draco “Uh, I sensitized our smells and put it in small valves. I had to work up Sophia’s anger to get her to sweat, but everyone else was easy.” The warriors. They all nodded and handcuffed the women, taking them out of the room.
“Well, then, I shall be going too. I won’t be able to help any longer, so I wish you luck in your battle,” the Goddess confessed, a sheepish look on her face. I nodded and smiled, knowing she had helped me with everything.
“Good day, Goddess,” I softly said as I bowed low, Draco bowing with me.
When I felt as if the Goddess was gone I stood back up, pulling Draco with me. “Come on, Draco, I’ll teleport us some food into the living room, okay?” He nodded his head and smiled, kissing my check.
We walked in silence to the living room, holding hands as we went. When we got to the living room it was full of my family and their mates. A surprised squeal left my lips as I ran over and jumped into Kaiden’s arms, hugging his neck hard. I heard a growl like sound and looked at Draco, a confused look on my face.
The green eyed monster has appeared.
“Draco, this is my brother Kaiden,” I said quickly.
Draco smiled and stuck out his hand. “Nice to meet you, I’m Kaley’s mate.”
Kaiden smiled and shook his hand as I hopped down and kissed his mates head. I ran over to Griffith and jumped into his arms. Griffith threw me up in the air, catching me when I fell back down. “Hey, squirt, how have you been doing?”
I laughed at his nickname for me. “I’m fine. I found my mate and couldn’t be any happier.”
“Wow, that was quick, but I thought you already had a mate.” He paused. “Oh, Zander finally screwed up. We both knew he would, didn’t we?”
I nodded my head. “Yes, I knew he would. He couldn’t keep his eyes off of certain girls in the pack and I knew he was whoring around.” I paused and looked at him. “But, it was great to catch him and throw him and the girl outside naked. She landed right in front of her mate.” We started laughing. “Her mate asked our grandma to take away the mate bond and she did. Zander was killed after he told her he was going to tell the world of our existence - stupid male.”
“So, I hear someone’s getting married,” Kaiden commented as I smiled brightly. “Hmm, is your mate good enough for you?”
“Probably not,” Draco answered, a wicked smile on his face. “But, I will try my hardest to be.”
We all sat down and ate. I knew I would need the energy for later. It seemed as if I always needed energy. I couldn’t understand why I was so tired. “Hey, Mom, were you always tired when you were pregnant?” I asked, my brother’s jaws hitting the ground.
“Yes. It was hard to keep my energy up, but the energy bars and cokes helped a lot. I kept them in a crossover bag so I could get one anytime I wanted.” I looked at her strangely. Why the hell would she need a bag when she could teleport whatever she wanted. “Oh, I had to carry the bag to keep my magic down in some situations. Sometimes it’s better to hide your magic and other times not so much.”
“That’s true. Thanks, Mom,” I said as I turned my attention back to my older brothers - who, by the way, were still looking as if they were about to pass out. “You’re pregnant already. Before your wedding?” I heard my brother Griffith ask.
I chuckled. “Yes, and thank you for your congratulations, brother.” I didn’t know what his problem was. I mean, yes I was a little younger than my body showed, but my body knew what it was doing, plus, Draco was my mate and I was glad I grew up enough to match my mind. I had never been a child, not really.
“Sorry, Kaley, it’s just freaky thinking of you all grown up.” He sighed and rubbed his head. “Congratulations, you two. If you are happy then I am, too.” He walked over to me and laid a hand on my face. “It’s still freaky seeing you all grown up, but I have always known you were older than your body showed. I’m proud of you.”
A tear leaked out of my eye at his words. “Why don’t you go congratulate Hailey, too?” I whispered, his head whipping around to me, an astonished look on his face. He looked back at me, his mouth agape, his mouth opening and closing. He looked ridiculous but I would leave his cuteness alone.
I nodded my head and pointed at my stomach. He whipped back around to Hailey. “So, is this your mate, Hailey?” Hailey nodded as she introduced them. I knew what Griffith was going to do to Alec and I knew it would be a cluster - fuck.
Griffith stalked Alec as Hailey pushed herself into the couch further. I took Hailey’s hand and moved us back to the darkened corner. “Is Griffith going to hurt my mate? What’s going on? I can't watch him get hurt, Kaley. I don't know what to do to protect him. What happens if I use my magic to hurt Griffith?” Hailey questioned.
“He’s not going to hurt him, Haily. He wants to see if Alec will stand up for himself and protect you. Calm down,” I explained to her through our mind-link. Everyone quieted down and watched the men. I teleported mine and Draco’s plate of food to me. I was hungry and I didn’t know how long this was going to be. I gave Draco his plate and we squatted down to eat our food, looking between each of the men. It was as if we were watching a soccer game and the teams were quickly kicking the ball around. It was funny to see all of us focusing on the two.
I was so proud of Alec. He never backed down from Griffith - not once. When Griffith asked him if he could take care of his sister Alec took Griffith to his knees and asked him if he could take care of his mate. My mom and dad had to break up their pissing contest as the rest of us were laughing, well, except for Hailey. My brother’s were crazy, but they loved us unconditionally.
I watched as Alec pulled Griffith to his feet, slapping him on the shoulder. “I guess you will do.” We started laughing at their craziness, Hailey running over to Alec.
And, here comes the attitude
Hailey put her hands on her hips and scowled up at Griffith. “Why would you test my mate? You knew he was going to be as powerful as the rest of us are and yet you had to act as an ass.” I watched as Hailey huffed over to the couch, Alec following her. “You’re lucky I didn’t change you into a duck with the help of Angel.” Angel had a wicked grin on her face as we looked at her. I knew she was going to do something to Griffith and he did too.
“We’ve got a problem,” was the next words I heard.
“What kind of problem,” I asked him as I stood up, helping Kaley to stand with me.
“Come see,” was all he said as he ran back to the security room.
I looked at Kaley, as if to say ‘let’s go’. She teleported us to the security room, beating my tech guy by a few seconds.
“What the hell?” I heard him say as he walked into the room, looking at us in shock.
“Show me,” I ordered, snapping the fool out of his state of shock. He nodded his head and brought up the cameras on the east side of our property. My eyes bugged out of my head, my mouth dropped open. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I blinked my eyes a few times and opened my mouth several times to speak. I was praying to my Goddess to take the image away.
