“Valentino, will you just listen to me?” Alexander pleaded. He hated to see Valentino so upset, although the anger was super sexy on him. With his lean 6’5” frame and piecing green eyes he made all the girls drool. “We completed the hit on the fairy king’s daughter what more do we need to do?” Alexander boldly asked. He knew he could get away with it.
“Those imbeciles your in charge of let a girl live. Shes going to either turn or tell those cops who it was.” Valentino shouted at him.
“What is she going to say? I was attacked by wolves who turned into guys when they were done with me? They will lock her up and think she is crazy.” Alexander tried to reason with him, but when he was in a mood it was hard to get him to settle down. All of a sudden another pack member burst through the door.
“Sir, there’s one of the high guardians from the fairy council in Cartersville. He found the girl along with the police officer that’s also a fairy guardian.” The frightened pack member said quietly.
“What?” Valentino screamed at him. He slammed him against the wall. “I want them dead all of them. If they aren’t dead by sunset tomorrow I will kill you.” Valentino sneered. He dropped the scared pack member to the floor and turned to Alexander. “You want to go on a field trip, Alex? Valentino asked as he hugged Alex.
“Mmmhmm. To the islands right?” Alex joked as he tried to calm Valentino.
“Haha no but soon we will.”
“Promise?” Alex took the chance to ask.
“Of course, I promise. You know I will do whatever you want me to do to make you happy.” Valentino replied as he turned and said over his shoulder “Pack your bags. Lets go to Cartersville we will leave in an hour.” Alex started packing their stuff all the while thinking about how strange his life was. He never imagined that he would be the mate of the one of the most feared werewolf leaders. His life was almost perfect. The only thing that would make it better was if Valentino could become the supreme leader of all the immortals. It was after all his birth rite. The other thing that would make it perfect was if his family was more accepting of his lifestyle. As he packed and mused he thought back to the last time he had been home. It had been nigh on 20 years now.
“You ready to go yet?” Valentino asked as he walked into the bedroom breaking Alex’s thoughts.
“Yea I have it all here and ready to go.” He replied giving one last look around the room.
The sun was just starting to set as Valentino and Alex approached Cartersville. They drove into town and stopped at a dingy diner. When they walked in the dainty bell tinkled. They found a clean table and sat down. A sweet waitress walked over and took their order.
“Ok so now we are here whats the plan?” Alex asked he was eager to get this over with it had taken so long to get here and now the mission was almost complete. As they ate they came up with a game plan on what the next course of action should be. They decided that the fairy guardians should be killed first then they would take Alice with them. They also had to find out if Lillianna had in fact been killed. They checked into the motel. It was dirty and run down, but it would do. They dropped off their stuff and set out to get the lay of the town.
“What will we do when we find them?” Alex asked Valentino.
“We follow them. Find out where they live and what kind of property it is. Then we stake it out and learn their routines. Then we call the rest of the pack and kill them and take Alice.” “She will just be a burden to us though. We should just get rid of her too.” Alex responded. “She’s is well was a high fairy guardian as well. We need information from her. She knows the layout of the council chambers and the great halls.” Valentino responded. “Apparently the rest of the pack members don’t know the proper way to get information from people.” Alex was starting to wonder if Valentino had a crush on the girl.
“Is that it or do you like her?” Alex asked with a hint of jealousy in his voice.
“What?” Valentino asked confused. “No I don’t like her. I wouldn’t stray from you. You know I love you.” Alex didn’t believe him, but there was no reason to doubt him yet. As they walked down Main St. they all of a sudden spotted Daniel and Toby.
“Wait there they are.” Alex whispered to Valentino. They started to follow them, but made sure to maintain a safe distance. They soon came upon Daniel’s house. There they found out that Alice was in fact alive and staying with them.
“Hey over there. Is that Alice?” Alex whispered to Valentino. In the distance standing by a pond was a gorgeous werewolf. It was pure black and petite in size. “Let’s change and see if we can get her attention we have to tell her how to change back.” Alex told Valentino. They quickly changed and called to her. They could tell she was still in shock about changing and she slowly took her eyes off her reflection in the pond to glance their way. Slowly and cautiously she made her way towards them.
“What’s going on? How did this happen?” She asked them.
“You’re a werewolf now.” Valentino responded.
“Did you do this to me?” she practically yelled at them.
“No we didn’t. We would never do that.” Valentino tried reassuring her. “Now listen to me. You need to imagine yourself as a human. After you do that you will be back to your normal self.” She did as he told her and pretty soon she was back to being human. Valentino and Alex changed as well.
“What’s going on?” Alice asked them.
“That’s what we came here to find out. We heard there were rogue werewolves attacking fairies.” Alex answered her.
“Tell me who attacked you?” Valentino asked.
“I don’t know. I didn’t see them. I just know they were wolves.” She went on to describe them. As she was talking Valentino and Alex both noted that there was movement in the house.
“Alice, why don’t you come with us? We can keep you safe and teach you the ways of the werewolves. You are one of us now. By the way I’m Valentino and this is my boyfriend Alex. We are leaders of the local pack.” Valentino said after he realized he didn’t introduce them.
“I’m Alice.” Alice replied. “Look I should be getting back inside. They will be wondering where I am.” Alice said slowly.
“You really should come with us.” Valentino said as him and Alex got closer to her.
“Wait what are you doing?” Alice asked starting to get scared.
“Nothing sweetheart.” Valentino replied stepping closer to her.
