"Are you sure you want to do this Wills? I don’t want you stressing out more than what you already are. We have three pups to worry about now. I was worried when it was just one, but now there’s higher risks that come with having more than one. I want you to be completely sure. I don’t want you to stress yourself out or do anything to strenuous. You know the doctor said you need to take it easy. I don’t want us to go through anything that we can prevent happening.” He knows I’m not backing down from this and I understand where he’s coming from, but I need him to understand I need to do this. For me, for my sister, for my family. I can’t let this go.

“Levs…please, just let me do this. I need to do this. I need to know why they did this to us. I need to know why they wanted to not only put me in danger, but Shay and our babies as well. I can’t let this slide. I need to get these answers. If it gets to be too much, I promise I will back down. I won’t let anything happen to our pups and you should know this. Honestly, it pisses me off that you would even think that I would do anything to put them in danger.” It’s true. He may not have meant to insinuate that point, but he did.

“That’s not what I meant, and you know it. Look, I’m just worried. Can’t I be worried? You are my mate and you are carrying precious cargo. I’m sorry if I insinuated anything other than worry. I’ll make it up to you later.” He says and leans down to kiss me. “Let’s get this over with so I can get you to bed.” With that, we go down into the dungeon.

When we get down there, I see that Ryder and Jason are already down there along with a few other warriors. My parents are sitting in chairs strapped down tight. The anger and hatred that I instantly feel is shown through my face. However, I can’t help but feel the love for them as my parents. What they have done is completely unforgivable, but I will always love them, even though I want them dead. “Glad you could finally join us.” My mom says breaking me out of my thoughts. I let off a growl and glare at her in a challenging way.

“I’d watch how you talk to me if I were you. You are the reason I was put in this position in the first place. We wouldn’t be here at this point if it weren’t for you and your husbands selfishness. Do you know what you could have done to me? To Shay? Or even to my pups? You put everyone I care about in danger and I want to know why. How dare you sit there and talk to me like that! Who do you think you are!” I sneer. I need to calm down. I’m letting my anger get the best of me, not that anyone would blame me, but still, it’s not good for the babies. I feel Levi’s hands lay on my hips, instantly calming me a little.

“Calm down baby girl or I’ll have to have you leave.” I scowl at him. “Don’t give me that look Willow. You are carrying precious cargo and if you can’t keep calm enough to make sure nothing happens to them or you I will make you leave and go home. I love you, but I’m looking out for you.” He’s right, but I still don’t like that he thinks he can tell me to leave. Like that would happen. I’d have to be dragged out before I get what I came here for. “I’ll pick you up and throw you over my shoulder if I have to. I know exactly what you were thinking. Now, can you calm down enough to keep these pups from coming way to early?” I just nod and turn my attention back to my parents.

“Let’s begin.” Levi starts out. “Care to explain why you kidnapped not only your daughters, but you Queen and Beta Female?”

“We don’t answer to you, your highness.” My dad sneered. Levi let out a warning growl.

“Let’s try that again, shall we? What was your big plan?” Levi asks using his Alpha tone and this one my dad can’t resist. He hangs his head and shows his neck as a sign of submission as my mother does the same.

“We had a deal with King Hayes and his sons, so we were following through with it. Just because you beat him in that challenge doesn’t mean people are happy about it. You only won because he was ill and with that people are disgusted with you and, I for one, wasn’t about to follow a child that thinks he can cheat the system. You are a pathetic excuse for a King, and you will never amount to half the wolf that King Hayes was! As for my darling daughter, she was promised to the eldest boy and the little bitch decided to go and find her mate and turn her back on her family when we needed her the most. Same goes with that little whore of a sister of hers.” My father spat out and I lost my composure. No one talks about my mate, sister, or myself like that. He didn’t see it coming. The shock evident in his face as my fist collides with his nose, breaking it in more that one place. The blood is gushing out and my mother is screaming at me to stop, but I can’t stop punching his smug face. I get a few more hits in before Levi pulls me off him.

“You bastard! How dare you. You have no right to talk about us like that! We didn’t make that deal. YOU DID! It’s not our choice when we find out mates and you know that! It’s NOT my fault you were a coward that couldn’t take care of you family, so you had to sell your daughters like we were some prostitute and you were a pimp! You disgust me!” I’m trying to fight Levi off me so I can go back for more, but he’s to strong.

“Willow! Calm down. NOW!” He’s pissed, but is he mad at me or at what my father said?

LEVI’S POV

She launched at him out of nowhere. She was just pounding into him like he was a punching bag. I’m not going to lie, it was a major turn on, but now wasn’t the time to think with my cock. I snapped out of my lust filled haze when I heard her mother scream for her to stop. I rushed to her and pulled her off. She can’t get worked up like this. Did she not think about the consequences it could have on her life or the pups! I don’t blame her for how she reacted, but she needed to use her head and not her emotions. There is too much at risks. She’s fighting me to get back to her father. She’s strong, but I’m stronger. “Willow! Calm down. NOW!” I roared at her. She stopped fighting and started to shake. I need to get her out of here and finish this myself. She’s not going to be happy, but it needs to be done. “You need to go home and get some rest. I’ll finish this here. Don’t fight me on this. I told you what would happen if you lost it. I understand where you came from, but it’s not just you anymore. You cannot react like that. I will handle it.” If looks could kill, I’d be six feet under right now. I know I’m going to pay for this when I get home.

“No. I’m going to stay here. I need to know this. I’m sorry I lost it. The things he said. Please, Levi.” She’s pissed, I can feel it. I can also tell that she needs this. I’d give this woman the world if she asked for it.

“Wills…You can’t stay in here if you’re going to lose it every time, he says something like that. You think I don’t want to rip his fucking head off at what he said? That’s not going to solve anything right now. We need to have calm heads. One more outburst and I’m throwing you over my shoulder and…” I lean in closer to her ear and whisper so only she can hear. “I’ll take you straight to our bedroom and fuck you until you can’t walk for a week or fuck you into submission. Up to you.” I can see the blush at the thoughts running through her head creep up to her face.

“Fine. I’ll try to not react that way again. That’s all I can do…is try…” She says looking down at the ground. I lift her head up to meet my eyes with a finger under her chin.

“That’s all I ask, love.” I give her a kiss before getting back to the room to finish this shit. Man, her dad looks like shit. She did a number on his face. I smirk and look at them both. “Sorry for the interruption, now where were we? Ah, yes. You were insulting me along with my mate and our family. Care to continue or may I say something?” They just glared at me and I took that as a que to continue, even though I was going to anyways. “So, let me get this correct, you were going follow through on a deal with King Hayes and his sons, even though he is dead, and you went against your current King, correct? Did you think of the consequences that you would face? Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but you were planning on using your daughters to weaken us so one of the boys could come into power? Care to explain?”

Willow’s mother speaks up for the first time. “You are not good for my daughter and I would do it all again if I could. I regret nothing that has happened. You think you’re so great? You’re nothing but a fraud and a poor excuse for an Alpha. Yes, we were going to use them and then give them to Taylor and Jackson. Jackson was supposed to become the next King and Willow was his promised mate. You took away our chance at never wanting for anything. That’s all there is to it.” She got cut off by her husband.

“Shut up! Don’t tell him another thing! There will always be a threat towards you. You think you can keep them safe from what is yet to come?” He sneered. What does he mean what’s to come?

“Please, pray tell, what is yet to come? What’s the next big bad that you think I cannot handle. Don’t stop there. It’s not like you’re getting out of here alive either way. You betrayed your King and your Queen. You have kidnapped and tortured your own daughter, putting your grandpups in danger, not to mention your other daughter, who is mated to the Royal Beta. There are many more charges against you that will ultimately result in a death sentence and it shall be done publicly so that those who doubt my leadership will no longer.” I said.

“There is a threat coming that doesn’t want those pups born. They are going to be the most powerful beings that have ever been created. Kill us, if you must, but that’s all you will get out of us.” With that he shut his mouth for the first time. Well, I wasn’t expecting those answers.
