EIGHT YEARS LATER

It’s been eight years since we went through the kidnapping of myself while I was pregnant with my pups. It didn’t take long for things to get back to normal. Well, as normal as raising three children who act just like their father could be. It’s been amazing to watch them grow into the people they are today. In human years they are only eight, but in our world of being werewolves, they are sixteen. We grow faster for the first eight years of our lives and then our aging slows drastically. Tomorrow is their sixteenth birthday and they all want something different, but we talked them into having one big party that all three of them can agree on. It is also the day that they will possibly find their mates.

Everett is the jock. He is obsessed with sports and he is also obsessed with following his father around and learning his role as the Werewolf King. He won’t take over the position until he is eighteen and that is only if he has met his mate. Unless, something were to happen to his father, then he would take the throne earlier. I know when I was his age, I wasn’t able to manage my time as well as he has. He has a set schedule that he follows every day. He is always up no later than six in the morning and out in the training arena. He’s been training with Ryder and Shay’s son, Jackson, who is going to be Everett’s beta. He’s the sweetest man out there. I can say confidently that his mate is going to be one lucky lady when he finds her.

Freya is the popular nerd. She would rather read a book than go to a party, but she is liked by everyone. She’s a social butterfly when she needs to be, but if she doesn’t have to be then she just stays to herself. She is very protected. Her brothers, father, and uncles have made sure that any boy that comes in contact with her knows to keep their paws to themselves or they will suffer severely. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to reprimand all of the men because they will not let her breath when a member of the opposite sex is around. I can tell it bothers her, but she’s kind enough to put on a show for the men in her life. She is a daddy’s girl and I couldn’t be happier. She has come into her witch powers easier than her brothers. I think it has something to do with the Moon Goddess part of her.

Noel is our hothead. He has more vampire than wolf and witch present, but that doesn’t stop him from shifting and tearing up anything in his path if he gets mad enough. It has gotten to the point that Levi has put him on border patrol most of the time. He loves it. He said he wants to be a warrior, but he knows that once he turns eighteen, he has to take the throne to the Vampire Kingdom. He has decided that his first action is going to move his Kingdom here in the States because he wants to be closer to his siblings. They are stronger together than if they are apart. He is always training in his free time. He is a looker, all of my kids are, but he seems to get the most attention from the girls. I suppose it helps he’s also into sports. I must admit that I don’t like it. I don’t like the attention any of my pups get. I think they should wait for their mates; however, Levi and I have talked with each of them and explained our opinion to them and told them that it is ultimately their decision.

Levi and I have had five more kids in the past eight years, and he wants to keep going. I’m okay with that because I want to have a big family, but I need a break. I want to be able to do things that I can’t do if I’m pregnant all of the time. I love being pregnant, but I want to go out for girls’ nights Have fun every once in a while.

Jason and Alexis have three children. Triston, who is fourteen, Boston who is ten, and Veronica who is 3. Ryder and Shay have four and one on the way. There is Jackson at fifteen, Isabella at twelve, then the twins, Nixon and Kimber at the age of five. It’s safe to say that between the three of our families, we have a football team. Our house is definitely full. We all live in the packhouse. We just had to add two extra floors. The seventh floor is for our family. The sixth floor is for the Beta family. The fifth floor is for the Gamma family. The fourth floor is for our parents and special guests. The bottom three floors are for the wolves that have decided to stay at the packhouse and not find their own homes. Or they are just looking for their mates. Most of the warriors stay here as well. It is easier for everyone if anything were to happen.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day and I cannot be more excited to celebrate one of the biggest milestones in my pups’ lives. Levi and I have done everything in our power to make sure everything is under control for their party tomorrow and to make sure that they are respectable young men and a young woman. I just hope the new baby waits until after the party to arrive. Levi has made it his life mission to show Freya how a lady should be treated and show Everett and Noel how to treat a lady. I must say that I am very proud of my children and my nieces and nephews. I can’t wait to watch and support them as they follow the path that was destined for them.
