I forced down the pity that was rising inside me.
And pull out the dagger strapped to my belt.
“Why?” I asked, my voice harsh with anger.
Nyx was burning with anger from his betrayal, egging me on to spill his blood.
I held myself back, wanting to hear him out.
He sobs silently, whimpering as he does.
I look at Quinn, who is as flabbergasted as me.
“M-my mate. They have her captive. I-I was supposed to give them information...they said they would let Cassie go.” More sobs.
I can hear his genuine pain in his voice.
I lower my dagger, looking at his suprised face.
“Kill me quickly please.” he says.
“I’m not going to kill you.” I sigh, standing up straight.“It’s not your fault that Faeus took the one person that you love.”
I remembered something Kaden had told me when we first met...
“Look Sienna, you seem like a great woman. But I can’t afford to have a mate right now. My enemies could use you as leverage. I’m sorry.”
I hold out a hand, wanting to help him up.
He looks at it for a moment, then takes it. I pull him up and turn to Quinn.
He looks at me, awe written all over his face.
Then he does something that I couldn’t have thought would ever happen.
“I, Quinn Taylor renounce my title as Alpha of Dressilian Pack. I hand it over to Sienna Rivers.”
I gasp as my whole body glows with a warm, buttery, golden light.
I look at Quinn, who is currently smirking.
Then I slap him.
“The f**k dude?” I yell.
