Ugh. My body feels heavy. My eyes even heavier. I don’t want to wake up because I know I won’t be at home. The images of what happened yesterday never left. I snap my eyes open and wince as the light hits them. I immediately draw my hands to my belly to make sure my babies are still in there and moving. I’m still pregnant and the pups are still moving around.
“It’s about time you woke up. You’ve been out for a while now.” A voice says from beside me. My gaze snaps to the man across the room. It’s the man that claims to be my uncle.
“What do you want? You’re not getting my pups. You can get that thought out of your head.” I manage to croak out. My throat is dry and scratchy.
“You should really watch how you talk to me. Maybe I just want to talk.” I roll my eyes and scoff. Who does he think he is? This is the threat we have been waiting for. I just never thought they’d be able to infiltrate our borders.
I clear my throat before talking. “You could be a gracious host and offer me something to drink I mean you did drug me, and I don’t know how long I’ve been here unconscious, so my throat is scratchy.” I smirk. I’m not going to let him see the fear that is running through my body. I’m stronger than that. I’ve been through a lot, so I know I can make it through this with my pups. I just need to figure out how. He gets up and walks out of the room. I know it’s stupid to try and get out right now. Especially since I don’t know where I am. I try to sit up and my head is a little fuzzy. I shake it slightly and blink a few times and try again. I manage to get sat up and look around the room. I mean, it is better than what my parents kept me in when I woke up there.
I’m not in a cell, so that’s good too. I’m in a bedroom. The walls are an off-white color and there are wall to ceiling windows, they don’t open though. Not that I’d try to go out them because once I get the strength to walk over to them, I notice we’re on the third story somewhere in a heavily wooded area. We’re in the middle of nowhere and I don’t know what is going to happen to me or my babies. I just need answers. I want to get home to my mate. There is a TV in the room that is hanging from the wall. A bathroom, and a dresser, and closet. The bed is a queen size with blood red sheets and blankets. I’m taking everything in when the door opens.
“Ah, I see you’re familiarizing yourself with your new home. Well, your home until you give birth.” The man says, handing me a glass of water.
“What makes you think you’ll be able to keep me here? What do you want with my children? Who are you!” I question. I take the glass from him and take a drink of the cold liquid and it feels amazing on my throat. I was thirstier than I thought. What does he mean it’s my new home until I give birth? That’s three months away! He’s crazy if he thinks he can keep me here that long. I will not allow him to keep me here or have any access to my pups. I need to find out what he knows before I make my plan to escape.
“Come on, Willow, I know you’re smarter than that. You know you won’t do anything to risk your life or your pups’ lives. Besides, I have information you may be interested it. I have all the truths that you are wanting to know.” That piqued my interest. Of course, I’m not going to do anything to risks my pups’ lives, but I’m still going to get out of here.
“You may have my interest now, but don’t mistake that for defeat. I will find a way out of here and you won’t be able to stop me. Levi will find me, and he will take you out.” I say.
He chuckled and shook his head. “Your mate won’t be able to find you. We’re not anywhere near your home. Shall we begin?” He asks. He takes a seat in the chair that is in the room and I walk to the bed and take a seat. Once I get as comfortable as I can in the situation that I’m in, I give him a slight nod. “As you know, your mother was my sister. Well, half-sister, we have the same father, different mother. I am pure Vampire and your mother was a half-breed. After my father met your grandmother, he left my mother to be with her. She left with me and she wasn’t the best mother. She blamed me for with had happened and in turn, I blamed my father. Once I turned eighteen, I went back to England to confront him. It started off as an argument and turned into a fight. He kicked my ass and I walked away defeated. I worked on getting my strength back and getting stronger. I went back after five years of building my army and strength. This time, I was prepared for the fight. After our falling out, I was determined. Your grandmother had left with my sister and my father was losing his mind slowly. He was easier to take out. That’s how I became the King of the Vampires. I was content up until two years ago, when I found out that there was going to be a powerful being born in my family that would take my throne. That’s where your pups come in. I know you know about your daughter, but did you know about your sons?”
I shake my head no. This is a lot of information. I’m glad that I can finally get some answers, but I wish it were under different circumstances. He continues. “I didn’t expect you would since we took you before your mate had arrived back home. You see, one of your sons will rule over the wolves, whereas, the other will rule over the vampires. You see, I was irate at first and was just going to kill you while you were pregnant so I wouldn’t have to worry about my throne being taken from me in the future. However, I concluded that I could use this power to my advantage. You see, I only need one of your pups, but I don’t know which would rule my kind, so I wouldn’t be able to kill them until I knew. So, I changed my plan to wait until they were born to find out which would bring me ultimate power. Then I got to thinking, why kill them myself, when I can have the two brothers fighting one another and have the strongest species win.”
“You won’t get your hands on any of them. You’re sick. They won’t turn on one another. Even if I am not around. There are plenty of people that will make sure they grow up right. You won’t be alive long enough to see your plan through. Even if you were to succeed, you forget that my daughter is the next Moon Goddess, Queen of witches, and she will be able to keep her brothers from turning on one another.” I say.
“Your daughter will have to be dealt with. There is one more piece of information that has spoiled my plans once again. You see, none of them can be killed without the others losing some of their power. They will still be stronger than most, but not as strong as the three of them together. So, I have plans for your daughter that will keep her alive, but barely.” My blood starts to boil. I will not let him do anything to my pups. Levi will be here along with some of our best warriors. As if he can read my mind, he starts to cackle. “He won’t be able to find you until I’m ready for him to find your body. You don’t have anything that he can track on you. So, get comfortable and get some rest. You’ll be here for a while.” I charge at him with a ferocious growl. He seems to be caught off guard, but only for a moment. I was able to get a slash in, but he was quick and the last thing I remember was being thrown on the bed before darkness takes me.
