“Please, you don’t understand. It isn’t safe for her to come. I beg you, give me more time. Surely, you understand. I don’t want to put her in any danger,” he says.
“No, we made a deal. You were supposed to rebuild your pack, and then your mate was supposed to move in with you,” I say.
He is on his knees, and I can see his pain. It doesn’t matter, though. He is supposed to take her, and she is supposed to be his Luna. That is what I decided, and if he wasn’t going to do it, then I will take away his mate.
“I am sorry, but if you don’t take her today, then I am going to take her away from you. So, make your decision now. Will you take her now?” I say.
“NO, I WILL NOT. She is my mate, and I will NOT put my mate in danger,” he says.
I sigh and say, “fine. I will find her a new mate. Goodbye,” I say.
I head back to my castle, and my mom is there. What is she doing here? She is no longer the Moon Goddess.
“Lily, what have you done? You should have given that boy more time,” she saya.
“Mom, I made the decision. He didn’t uphold the deal,” I say.
“Lily, sometimes you need to see the bigger picture and be more empathetic towards our people,” she says.
“Let’s hope that your decision doesn’t affect those involved negatively,” she says.
“Lila, leave Lily alone,” a voice says.
I look behind me, and I see my great great grandmother, Selene.
“Grammy, what are you doing here?” I say to her.
“Lily, we need to talk. Lila, please leave. I will talk to you later,” she says.
My Grammy only comes when something serious is happening. It is never a good thing when she comes unannounced.
“Come, my child, we have a lot to discuss,” she says.
At least she told my mom to leave. Maybe I should have let him keep his mate.... I don’t know. I can’t second guess myself. I need to stick to my decision. I think everything will work itself out...
