WILLOW’S POV

“Lock them up until I can figure out what to do with them. I want them in separate cells so they cannot talk to one another. I want a guard at each of their cells around the clock. I do not trust them. Also, get the doctor down here to inject them with something to where they cannot mind-link each other.” Levi said to Jason.

“Yes, Alpha King.” Jason replied in return. I still find it odd when they call him anything but Levi.

I’m still trying to wrap my head around what my father said. Who would want to hurt my babies? Once he said he wasn’t going to tell us who it was, I wanted to finish what I started. I must keep them safe. I must keep my family safe, even if it means giving my life in return. I don’t want it to come to that, but if it does I know what my decision would be. I’d do anything to keep my babies and mate safe. I know Levi wouldn’t agree and I wouldn’t agree with him wanting to do the same thing. I still can’t help but wonder who it is and when it will happen. I don’t like not knowing things. “You ready to go home? We have much to discuss.” Levi asks, breaking me out of my thoughts and wrapping me up in his arms. I just nod my head snuggling closer to his body. He laughs and picks me up and I wrap my legs around his waist so he can carry me home.

“I love you.” I say as I nestle my head into the crook of his neck. I don’t care that I look like a baby right now. I just want to be in his arms where I feel the safest. “Soon, you won’t be able to do this. I’ll be huge!” I chuckle.

“I love you, too and don’t you worry, I’ll still carry you. Even if you do break my back in the process.” He says and I slap his chest and glare at him.

“Hey! That was rude! You asshole! I don’t think I want you to carry me anymore.” I say with a pout. He just smiles and tightens his hold on me.

“I was only kidding, my love. I will never let you go. I’ll carry you if you let me. At least, until the pups are born, then they’re going to be wanting to held and carried, so you’ll just have to share.” He said chuckling. We’re back home now and in our bedroom.

“Well, I think I can manage that. Now, can you put me down so we can go over what we just learned?” I said looking at Levi. This is the last thing I want to be doing right now, but it needs to be done. Our babies lives are at stake and we don’t know what this person wants with them. I’m automatically thinking the worst. I can feel the anxiety creeping slowly through my body and I don’t like it. The panic attack is going to be coming soon. “I can’t let anything happen to you or our babies Levi. I’ll do anything to keep you guys safe.” Levi sighs and sits me on the bed and crawls behind me, so my back is up against his chest.

“You won’t have to worry about it. I know you will because it’s who you are, but I am here. We have many people that would lay their lives down for you and those babies, myself included. We knew this was going to draw more attention to us and more enemies. For some reason, I didn’t expect them to involve the babies, but now that I think about it, other than you, they are my greatest weakness as they are yours.” Levi said. The tears start rolling down my cheeks. “Hey, baby don’t cry, we’ll figure it out. We always do. We need to find out who this threat is and why they think that our pups are going to be the most powerful beings there is. We need to talk to your birth father along with my parents. We need to find out everything about you and your background. I know most of mine, but it never hurts to double check. Yours is a bit more complicated because your father isn’t your biological father.”

“I’m scared Levi. I can’t not worry about everything and I know that it’s not good for the babies, but I can’t help it. I love them so much already. We haven’t even picked out names yet! We haven’t even got the nursery put together for three babies. We barely had it together for one. We also need to figure out how we’re going to deal with my parents. What are we going to do to them? I support you in all your decision and they crossed us more than once and we can’t let that go. If we did, you would be considered weak and we can’t have that. I can’t have you getting challenged for your title every time I turn around. I can’t handle it. Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones, but I can’t right now Levi. It’s all too much.” I have managed to turn around and am straddling his lap sobbing into the crook of his neck. Levi is rubbing his hands soothingly up and down my back.

“I’m scared too, but we have to be strong baby. We can’t let our emotions run us or we won’t come out on top. We will deal with your parents and then we will talk baby names and decorate the nursery, and then next week we will set up a meeting with Josiah and my parents to discuss the information we have and to discuss your background. Baby girl, we will get through this. I promise you, if it’s the last thing I do, I will protect you four. You need to rest for a bit before dinner and then we will hold a meeting in the square to deal with your parents. It has to be done so everyone remembers who I am and not to cross me.” I lay my head down on his chest as the tears and sobs start to subside and listen to his heartbeat. It’s soothing. This man is simply amazing. I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else. He’s my one and only and I will do anything for him and our children.

“Levs?” I mutter quietly.

“Hmm?” He replies.

“Thank you for everything. You’ve made me the happiest she-wolf around.” I said honestly.

“You never have to thank me for that Wills…it’s my job. Now, lean up here and kiss me. I missed you. I haven’t been myself while you were gone, and I need you right now. I can smell your arousal and you need me too apparently.”

“Eh…I don’t think I’m really in the mood right now. You might have to go take a cold shower or something.” I tease.

He cocks and eyebrow and says, “Is that so?” before he flips me so he’s hovering over me, capturing my lips in his. This, right here, is where I belong for eternity. His mouth leaves mine and he leave wet opened mouth kisses down my jawline and then to my neck and nips at his mark on my neck. I moan at the movement and thrust my hips forward. “Thought you weren’t in the mood?” He smirks kissing down my body, removing clothing along the way. A knock at the door stops Levi’s movements and I groan in frustration.

“WHAT! This better be important!” I bellow out. I’m horny as fuck right now.

“Luna, Alpha, I do apologize, but Shay and Ryder would like to see you in the office to discuss some business.” The man behind the door says.

“We’ll be there shortly.” Levi replies and I glare at him. “Come on babe. Let’s go before Ryder decides to walk in on us again. Don’t worry though, I’ll make it up to you. It’s almost time to eat anyways and then we have to take care of the situation at hand.” He says kissing my lips before getting up and handing me my bra and shirt.

“I’m going to give them a piece of my mind for this.” I mutter and Levi just chuckles and shakes his head.

“I wouldn’t expect anything less from you, my Queen. Shall we?” He reaches his hand out to me and I take it as he leads us to our offices. Shay and Ryder are already waiting for us and I immediately give them a death glare walking over and sitting on Levi’s lap after he sits behind his desk.

“This better be important. You interrupted my sexy time and I don’t take kindly to that. I’m a horny pregnant woman and I need my dick!” I smugly say and smirk at the grimaces on their faces. Levi lets out a loud laugh.

“Gross Willow! I didn’t need to hear that! I’m your sister.” Shay exclaims.

“Oh please. It’s not like you and Ryder aren’t fucking like rabbits. No one interrupts you now do they. I didn’t think so, but I try to get my dick fix and we’re either walked in on or interrupted! Now, what is that you want to discuss so I can get some food and deal with our parents?” I say leaning back into Levi’s chest as he wraps his arms around my waist rubbing circles on my bump. I just smile at the gesture and my mood changes.

“Anyway, how are you going to handle the prisoners?” Ryder asks. “I have already mind-linked the pack to tell them to be in the square after dinner. I just need to know how you would like to do it. I know you need to make a speech and Jason and I are needing to know what we are to do. Are we supposed to stand there and look pretty like our women?” I laugh at that. Ryder and Jason sitting around looking pretty, yeah I don’t see that ever happening.

“Well, I would love nothing more than to torture them in front of everyone, but what I have in mind wouldn’t be for the faint of heart. I will not make it quick, but they need to be made an example out of. WE need to show the people what will happen to those who cross us. As for you and Jason, you two get to play as well. Just a little and then we decapitate them and burn the bodies.” Levi said. I cringe a little at the term ‘play’ I know how ruthless they can all be and it’s not for my weak stomach. Ryder nods and gets up gesturing for Shay to follow.

“We’ll meet you in the dining hall. Willow…next time…don’t talk about your ‘dick time’” Ryder says with a grimace. “I don’t need the image back in my head of my brother…or you…not again.”

“Hey! I may be getting fat, but I’m still hot as hell! You’d be lucky to get a peak!” I snicker as they walk out the door. “I’m starving…for food too.” I say getting off Levi’s lap and heading to the door.

“Right behind you babe.” Levi said getting up as well.

I don’t know why he had to plan this for after everyone ate. This is disgusting to watch, and I have a weak stomach as it is. I’m trying to keep my food down, so I don’t seem weak. Or like I can’t handle it. They started out by bringing them out and shackling them in chairs on the stage and then Levi threw a few punches at my dad and Ryder likes to ‘play’ with knives, whereas, Jason likes to ‘play’ with plyers. Levi uses his hands. By now, both are missing their teeth along with their fingernails and they have cuts from the silver knives and their faces are swollen from the hits. It seems like they are starting to get it out of their system because Levi turns to the crowd. I’m glad that I mentioned for the pups to stay inside and not be able to come out here. This would scar them for life. The pack seems to understand that Levi, Ryder, and Jason aren’t the ones to mess with.

“Attention all! As you can see here, my in-laws have crossed me and my mate. I will not tolerate this behavior. If anyone has any objections to how I run MY pack, then I suggest you speak up now and serve the same fate as these two.” Levi pauses and looks around. No one moves or says anything. “Good, now I am not a bad man, I am a good leader, until you cross me. I am a ruthless man when it comes to defending my family and pack. I have decided to make this a public matter because you all need to know who you are dealing with and I am not afraid to put down the law! Ryder hand me a sword and grab one as well. Our mates have decided that they would like to get their own revenge for what they have been through. I will not go into detail of everything that has happened as I’m sure most of you have an idea.”

Shay and I walk onto the stage and grab a sword each. I look at her and she gives me a nod. We need to do this. It isn’t going to do much, but it will help us get some revenge for what they did to us. I wasn’t lying when I said I wanted to be the one to kill them myself. “Girls…please…spare us! We’re sorry.” My mother speaks. I just stare at them. We raise the swords and swing, taking their heads right off. I turn to Levi with tears in my eyes. I may have hated what they did, but I still loved them. Shay is in Ryders arms.

“Not here baby. You can break down when we get to the room.” Levi whispers in my ear.

“I need some warriors to clean this mess up and get the stage clean. I hope you all understand that I am not a man you want to cross. Now, if you’ll excuse us, I need to get your Queen and our pups to bed.” With that we walk back into the house and to the room.
