Chapter Twenty One
Hours had turned into days, and there was still no sign of Alex. Sam refuses to tell me why he left and why I felt that sudden wave of pain. He and Alex had done something.... Something stupid.
I'm losing my mind. I've even started getting violent. I've hit Sam Goddess knows how many times when we argue and my best friends are trying to avoid my wrath.
I've sent search parties day in and day out. Against Sam's orders, I joined them as often as I could. Things in the pack were chaotic without their Alpha and I was hanging on by a thread.
I sat in Alex's office searching security cameras at night. I haven't slept in at least three days.
My mother has started worrying for my health, begging me to sleep and that she would take over for a few hours but I always ignored her efforts.
I sat in a dark, cramp, cell shackled in silver chains. They've been drugging me, so I haven't heard my wolf in a while. I have no idea how long I've been here. I can't even feel Sadie right now. I missed her so much. I have a lot of explaining and begging to do if I got home.
My thoughts were interupted by the loud screech of the cell door.
"Hello, Alpha." Bastard. This crazy mother fucker has been torturing me for days. "Why won't you kill me?" I asked him. "Sadie would die. I don't want that." He replied. "You know she can feel it, every time you question me." I told him. His eyes widened.
"She's slowly losing her mind as well. When a mate is in danger and away too long, their wolf slowly goes insane. Then you know what happens?" I asked. "Tell me." The rouge said. "They either lose their will to live, or simply out their selves out of their own misery." When I said those words, he stumbled back. "No." He whispered. "My father did." I said trying to ignore my own anguish.
He stormed out of the cell and slammed the door behind him. Now what? I asked myself.
Another week passed and I was so mentally exhausted, I could barely get out of bed anymore but no matter how much I tried, I still couldn't sleep.
"I need my mate, Sadie. He's alone and in pain. I want my mate back." My wolf whimpered loudly. I broke down in tears at how exhausted and drained she sounded. She was almost ready to give up hope.
A strong wave of pain hit me in the gut slamming me to my knees. I grit my teeth, trying not to call out as it came again and again.
After the pain had faded enough for me to move, I linked Sam. "Please tell me you're close, Sam." I told him. "Not yet Sadie. I'm so sorry. We caught his a rouge scent but it faded a few miles out." He replied. "My wolf is dying. She's giving up." I told him trying to hold in my emotions. "Please don't give up. We will find him." He begged. "I'm too weak to fight, Sam. I'm useless." I finally let myself cry. "You've been fighting so hard. You need rest." He said and I closed the link.
"I'm so weak." My wolf whispered. "I'm begging you, don't give up on me. We will get him back." I replied. I didn't know if I believed my own words or not. I had to keep trying though. Even if I had to force my wolf to keep going.
If my wolf was this weak, I couldn't help but wonder how weak Alex's wolf was. "Hold on, baby." I linked, even though I knew he couldn't hear me.
