Chapter 20

“Eden! Wake up!”

Eden woke with a start, Dante leaning over her, his hair messy.

“What’s going on?” she mumbled, rubbing sleep out of her eyes.

“Elder Blackwood wants to see you. He said its about your Luna ceremony we have to perform.” he explained, standing up.

“Alright. Let me get ready and I’ll go.” Eden said, yawning as she crawled out of bed.

Getting dressed, Eden waved goodbye to Dante and walked out the door. As she headed towards the Elder’s house, she noticed the other packs were leaving and that the Packhouse finally seemed peaceful.

Arriving at his house, she knocked on the door waiting for him to answer.

“Eden! Hello. Come in!” he greeted, opening the door and ushering her inside.

“Dante said we had to speak about my Luna ceremony?” Eden questioned, taking a seat at his table.

“Yes, so before we are able to pass the leadership onto you, we first must complete the mating ritual between you, Dante, and Gabriel, which means that Dante must give up his alpha title to the Blood Moon Pack or he must merge the packs somehow.” Elder Blackwood said, taking a seat across from her.

“Okay, so why are you talking to me about it?” Eden asked, shifting in her seat.

“Because if Dante were to rescind his leadership of the Blood Moon Pack, he would lose any ability that his alpha blood may carry, and while that may not be too big of a deal to you, it may endanger any future pups you may be planning on having.” the Elder explained, his voice calm and unwavering.

“How much could it affect future pups that we plan to have?” Eden asked, concern finally creeping into her voice.

“It could make them unable to survive to term, and if they do, they would be very weak.” Elder Blackwood explained, sympathy softening his voice.

“Thank you, Elder. I think I need to go discuss this with my mates now. I will speak with you later.” Eden said, throwing her chair back as she stood up hastily.

Turning and leaving she pulled out her phone, typing a quick text she messaged Dante and Gabriel as she walked back to their room.

Opening the door to their bedroom, she saw Dante and Gabriel anxiously waiting on the bed for her return.

“Are you okay? Did something happen?” Gabriel questioned as soon as she closed the door.

“I’m okay, you two might want to sit down for what I have to tell you however.” Eden answered, taking a seat in the chair across from the bed.

Both men sat and turned to face her, worry creasing their faces.

As Eden explained what Elder Blackwood had told her, Dante’s face drained of all color, and Gabriel didn’t seem sure of where to look for an answer.

“You’re saying, that if I give up my Alpha title that it could endanger any children we have?” Dante asked, his voice quivering.

Eden nodded, not trusting her voice to work.

“Then I won’t give it up. I won’t endanger any chance we have to have a family. I won’t endanger you.” Dante promised, “I’m sure that this has happened in the past. There must be a way to combine our packs. Can’t we go talk to Elder now?”

Eden shrugged, “I’m sure we can go talk to him, I don’t know if he’ll have the answers we want however.”

Gabriel and Dante just nodded and followed her out of the room. Repeating her path from earlier, Eden led them back towards the Elder’s house. This time, however, Elder Blackwood was waiting outside, with Elder Hunter waiting with him.

“Eden, Dante, Gabriel, you three might want to sit. We have found something that may help with your dilemma.” Elder Hunter said, leading the way into the house.

“What is it?” Eden asked, as soon as everyone was seated.

“We found a ritual called the Coalescing of the Moons. What it does is combine two packs into one. Before this can be performed however, the Mating and Luna ceremony must be performed, as well as another double mated wolf must be present. Luna Eira Singh-Allaway may be able to be present, but if she isn't, we would have to look for a double mated wolf which may take awhile. Are you sure this is something you would want?" Elder Hunter explained, while Elder Blackwood looked on anxiously.

Eden turned to her mates, "Are you sure we could handle merging the two packs together?"

Dante and Gabriel looked at each other, silent words passing between the two of them. "If it makes sure that you and our children would be safe, we would do it in a heartbeat for you, Eden." Dante answered, his eyes never leaving hers.

"We will all be working together, it wouldn't be just you dealing with the combined packs. Since Dante would be the Blood Moon Pack's Alpha, and you are supposed be the New Moon Pack's Luna, I don't think the wolves would have any issues following you two. They would just have to learn to respect me, but I don't think that would be an issue." Gabriel added, looking at all of the wolves around the room.

Eden nodded, listening to her mate's words. She looked at them, Gabriel's bright, green eyes filled with determination, and Dante's fiery, amber eyes filled with love and strength.

She faced the Elders.

"We will be performing the Coalescing of the Moons. Our packs will become one, and we will become a different pack. No longer will the New Moon and Blood Moon pack be two separate entities. After we combine these packs we will be known by a new name." Eden declared, her voice steady and strong.

"What name will that be?" the elders asked, as her mates looked at her curiously.

"We will be known as the Spirit Moon Pack. In honor of those who came before."
