Chapter 1

After several months of studying all there was to know in the books I had. We decided to finally contact the family in which my mother had mentioned. I had so many questions for them already. But my number one was why my mother fled. If they knew I wanted the truth. I wanted to know if I could trust them. I wanted to know what my mother was so scared of.

Blake was bent over rereading the same book. He knew I had to go to Damien. He knew that that was part of my fate. But I knew he didn't want to accept it. I understood, even I was terrified to go on that path. But it was something I had to do. Maybe part of that life I lived inside my coma was something that the Goddess was trying to help me prepare for. On top of what he had done to me....

I looked over towards the crown sitting on my desk. "Blake, You know I want to be with you, right?"

He stopped what he was doing and looked up at me. "What?"

"I chose you. You are the one who I want to have a life and family with. You know that right?"

"Of course I know that."

"Will you hate me if I end up going to him.. If I end up being a vampire?"

He stayed silent for a bit, before carefully answering. "No. In the end I must accept that you will have to become one. I do need to accept that part of your transformation will be with him. But if there is another way..... Because the other Rubies hadn't been turned. At least in the history we know of them.."

"How did you end up knowing that I was the Ruby?"

"I don't know... Honestly I just had a feeling that you could be. But after the accident... It became clear that you were. I guess the Goddess had something to do with that."

"Yes. Most likely."

"No matter what happens, in the end we will be together." He said as he came over and wrapped his arms around me.

"I guess it is time then. We have read through every book here. In the letter left mom tells me that her.... I mean my family has the rest of the books. They also know a lot more. Mom said why she ran... but I feel like there is something more she didn't say. It just doesn't seem like her. Running over that fear..."

"Yes. I agree, but we are out of ideas.. So, I think its time for you to put the crown on your head and call your family."

I nodded and headed over to my desk. As soon as I picked it up it started vibrating. The moment I set it on my head the room filled with ruby light as the air around us began to sizzle. After a few minutes it slowed and began to flash red. Like a beacon of sorts.

"I'm not sure if I'm supposed to take it off or not." I said.

"I don't see why you couldn't."

"Yea. Better to not keep it on. I don't know how the pack would feel if i walked around with this on."

"Well, you are their Queen."

"Not yet. You had everything pushed back another month."

"True, but we were in a crisis. Maybe we can discuss later moving it up sooner. Wolf or not you still are our Luna Queen."

"Yes." I smiled and went to take the crown off. I yelped in pain, My hand feeling as though I stuck it in fire.

"What happened?" Blake asked.

"I don't think I can take it off. It just burned me."

"Let me try." He said, stepping over to me. He grabbed the crown and tried lifting it. "It's not hot, but it wont come off. Well, whether you like it or not, that stays on until they come."

I sighed heavily. This was going to be a pain.

A knock sounded at the door before Jeb stepped inside. "Blake, you are being requested at the gate. Someone is here to speak to you. They said you will know them when you saw them."

"Have you seen who they are?"

"No. I haven't been to the gate yet. I intercepted the message."

"Okay I'll be there." He said, then turned to me. "Go rest. I'll be up to bed after I find out who is here."

"Okay."

Blakes P.O.V

I headed for the gate, Jeb by my side.

"So was anything more found out?" He asked.

"Not really. We did what her mother said in the letter though. The crown is stuck on her head. I think they decided to do that so that they could find her without it being an issue. If she were to take the crown off and flee, they wouldn't be able to find her."

"Well, guess there isn't anything we can do except make sure our people are ready for new comers. If they are wolves then they will be able-" Jeb stopped as he looked towards the gate.

I followed his gaze, my feet stopping as I looked at her.

"How?"

"What?"

Jeb and I looked at each other then back at her.

"She put the crown on, didn't she." Her mother said.

"Yes."

She nodded her head and looked back at me. "Well, I guess we don't have much time before everyone starts to arrive."

"What do you mean?"

"I believe we should all speak together with my daughter."

"How are you here? I am not taking you anywhere near Ariel until I know that it is really you and not a game that sadistic vampire is playing." I said.

"She put the crown on."

"Okay. Yes, we already went over that." Jeb said.

"I am aware."

'Damien wouldn't know about that.' I said through the mindlink.

'He could have found out another way though.'

'But if it is her and not Damien that means that Ariel putting that crown on, brought her mother back.'

'Blake, if her mother is back who else did Ariel bring back? If that is true then what is coming?'

'I don't know.'

"Caroline, why are you back? How are you back? We need to know before I allow you to enter my territory."

"Ariel wears the crown of Abigail Fey.. The first Ruby to be born. Powers were placed within that crown so that the next ruby could summon every member of the Fey line."

"Your Family is the Fey Pack?" Jeb asked.

"Yes."

"I thought they all died off years ago when Damien went to war with them."

"No. We kept hidden. Damien destroyed our homes and the villages. But we were no where to be found. We all stayed hidden and he never found us. We left that land and found another. We have stayed hidden from that monster for decades."

"Why do they need to summon every member of your line?"

"Because, we have to protect the Ruby from the Knight line."

"Knight line?

"Yes. Damien has tried to mate with every Ruby who has been alive since his reign. Unfortunately one of the rubies ended up marrying into that family. She fell in love with him and married him. Had 3 children with him as well. She was mated to him after all."

"Wouldn't one of them become a Ruby?"

"They were all males. The Ruby is only a female."

We all stood silently.

"Can we go to my daughter now?" She said as she began heading towards us.

"Tomorrow. Jeb will get someone to get a room ready for you." I said as we all began to head back to the town.

"You will need more than just one room ready. The entire Fey pack will be showing up within the next few days."

"We will get the spare house ready." Jeb answered her. "You will stay in a room in the Pack house. While they are in-"

"The Elder will expect to be close to the Ruby." She said, cutting off Jebs words.

"We will need to build a bigger place-" Jeb began to say before I cut off his words.

"We can use the abandoned school on the east side of town. We can have them start renovations for it tomorrow. Depending on how many come. I'm sure between the house, the school building and the few rooms we have in the pack house it should be enough space."

"How long will they stay?" Jeb asked.

"Until She is ready. She will be taken to our family home. She has to grow as the ruby there."

"She isn't leaving this territory." I ground out.

"She will have to live with him for at least a year, Alpha. There isn't anything you can do about that."

"How do they know that he has to turn her?" Jeb asked.

"The Knight Clan is the most powerful clan of all the vampires. A Knight has to turn a ruby. Its been like that for generations. Each Ruby is pre-mated to a member of the knight clan. The Elder knows who is meant for the Ruby upon their first birthday. They get a vision of the vampire who is meant to turn them. Damien has only been the mate of one Ruby before. The first Ruby ever to walk the earth was the one who caused the fate of every Ruby to come."

"How?" I asked.

"I'm not entirely sure. Its never been spoken about. But I am sure we will find out when they come."

I nodded. We continued on the rest of the way in silence. When we got into the pack house two guards were standing by the stairs.

"The staff is getting the room prepared still." Tony said.

"Okay. Take her to the kitchen and get her fed. Bring her to her room after it is ready." I said.

"Of course."

"Go with them. We will all meet together in my office tomorrow."

She nodded and left.

Ariel's POV

It had been a couple hours since Blake left. I waited as long as I could before I finally drifted off to sleep.

When I woke in the morning I was wrapped up in his scent as he held me in his arms. I smiled and pressed my face against his chest. His arms tightened around me as he sighed.

"Good morning, my Luna."

"Good Morning Alpha."

"I'm sorry I wasn't back before you fell asleep." He said pulling back to look at me.

"It's okay. You had something to take care of."

"Yes well. That something is a bit bigger than I thought. We will all be discussing it in a few hours."

"What do you mean?"

"Just, understand that somethings are better left unsaid. There are somethings that don't need to be brought up. I will explain more to you before the meeting, But for now... Lets just relax before we have to get up and get started for the day."

His words confused me, but I nodded and snuggled back into his embrace.

It felt like too little time before we had to be pulled apart due to a new issue that arrived.

"The counsel is back and wants a meeting again." Jeb said when we all sat down at the table for breakfast.

"They can wait." Blake said.

"I will let you tell them that, they are all in the meeting room."

"Wait, when did they leave? I thought they were all still here." I said.

"They left the day we came back from Alaska." Jeb said.

"Oh."

"Finish your breakfast Love. I will be back in a few." Blake said standing. "Stay with her." He said to Jeb.

"Yes Alpha."

Jeb and I sat in silence for a few minutes before I broke the silence. "The crown is horrendous, isn't it."

He gave a small chuckle. "Nothing fit more perfectly for you, Luna."

"Flattering, thank you. But honestly this thing makes me uncomfortable."

"Well, hopefully soon a way to remove it comes."

"I'm finished now. Can I go to my office?"

"Yes. You may."

We both stood and headed for my office. I wanted to look over the letter from my mother once more, as well as write a letter to my father.

I was in my room for a few hours before Blake returned. Jeb sat with me, reading through the books he never got too.

"Ariel, we need to talk." He said as he sat in front of me, Jeb coming up behind him.

"Any time you say that, it never ends well."

"Keep an open mind." He said.

"Ohkay"

"So, we found out something about your family. More so who your family is and what happens when that crown is put on the Ruby's head."

"Okay."

"Your family is the Fey pack. Besides our pack, the Fey pack was and probably still is one of the strongest and most powerful packs. Years ago, Damien had attacked them. We thought they all died. But that wasn't the case, they hid and moved to a different area to get away from him. He may even think they are all dead, I'm not fully sure on that."

So my family on my mothers side is a powerful pack like yours?"

"Ours and yes."

"Damien attacked them over what?"

"The Ruby's, He has tried to mate with every Ruby since his reign."

"But if I am his mate that means every Ruby gets mated to him right?"

"No. You ended up being his actual mate. Only one other Ruby has been mated to him."

"Okay. Wait so was I the only Ruby to have to be turned?"

"No. All Ruby's must be turned by a Knight."

"Wait, How do you know all this?" I finally asked, there was so much information that wasn't spoke in the books.

"That's another thing." Jeb said. "That crown on your head, its full of magic. The power that is held within the crown is meant for the Ruby."

"The power of the crown and Ruby combined sends out a signal. Calling all Fey to the aid of the one wearing the crown. All living and non-living members of the Fey pack come to help the Ruby." Blake said, grabbing my hand. I looked into his eyes as I took in his words.

"Wait, so.... Wait that means...." I looked towards the door as a knock sounded.

I stood quickly as it opened. It couldn't be, but it was. Tears sprang to my eyes as I watched her walk in.

"Mama!"
