As Dante wandered around pack territory looking for Gabriel, he was lost in thought.
I wonder why the Goddess paired the three of us together. Eden is so young compared to both Gabriel and I, and she's been through a lot harder situations than either of us have been. It is super hard though, trying to find a good middle ground between the three of us.
As he wandered, Dante finally got his thoughts under control and realized that he was near the lake where not long ago, the young to-be Alpha's and Lunas gathered before people went home. Glancing around the bank of the lake, he saw who he assumed to be Gabriel on the other side of the water.
Making his way around the lake, Dante slowly walked up to the other male.
"Why? Why did the Moon Goddess cause me to suffer like this?" Gabriel asked out loud, having heard the other wolf approaching.
"I wish I had answers for you, Gabe, but I don't. All I know is that Eden is worried about you, I'm worried about you." Dante answered, sitting down next to him.
"Why? I'm no one special. I'm not an Alpha, I'm just the child of a Beta who caused the death of his own mother. Eden deserves better than me, she deserves you, a true blooded Alpha that can give her a healthy family and a good life." Gabriel moaned, resting his head between his knees.
"You know as well as I do, that will never happen. Eden will never break the mating bond she has with you, and neither will I, Gabriel. She loves you, I respect you, and you mean too much to either of us for us to just let you go." Dante scolded, resting his hand on his shoulder.
"I feel like a failure. I let my father and my mother down, I let Alpha Hugh and his Lunas down as well. I can't keep the people close to me safe, so why would it be any different with Eden and you." Gabriel wailed, his voice full of sorrow.
"You are not a failure. You are a strong Beta male who has made mistakes. We've all made mistakes, Gabe. Eden has made hers, I mine, and you yours. That's how life happens. I know the Moon Goddess wouldn't want you to sit here and waste away this blessings she's given you with Eden and I because of pain from your past. I feel as though the Goddess has forgiven you, and now it's your turn to forgive yourself Gabriel. Our mate is worried sick about you and I think we need to go to her before she loses her mind." Dante said, smiling at the man beside him.
Gabriel nodded and let the younger man lead him back towards the Packhouse where their mate waited for them.
Opening the door to their bedroom, they were greeted with a dark room. The only light source left on in the room was a bedside lamp.
"Are you sure you're okay with this?" Eden asked for what must have been the one hundredth time as her and her mates approached Alpha Hugh's door.
