"Yes, all of the Alpha Unit members live together," Aiden confirmed.
"They almost shot you," she cried. Then she remembered, they had almost killed her mate. She whirled around and flew at Aiden, punching wherever she could reach."How could you! How could you try to kill him!" She could barely see through her rage.
"Aiden, seriously what the fuck!" Meryn kicked Aiden in the shin."Ow! Ow! Dammit! Someone get her! Colton you deranged shit get them off of me!" Aiden did his best to block her blows.An arm came up behind her, pulling her away from the Unit Commander.
"I hate you! I hate you!" she cried."Beth! Beth! Baby, they had tranquilizers!" Gavriel croaked trying to get her to hear him. She stopped fighting.
She turned. "Really?" she sniffled.
"Yes, baby. Though, now that I think about it, even if they had shot me, I think I would have been okay.""I don't know. I want to assure you ... hell, I want to assure myself that I would never hurt her. But I can't guarantee it. I can swear to you that I would never knowingly or willingly lay a single finger on her in anger. That I would die to protect her, but you may be right, I may be more of a danger to her than our enemy." He covered his eyes with his hand. "Maybe I should send her back to Noctem Falls and to you."
One of the men exhaled loudly. "Safeguard yourself. Right before my brother's apex hit, he knew it was coming and he asked to be chained. It was the only thing that kept those around him safe, including myself. I want to tell you, 'yes, send her to us', but I know that would be wrong. Mates belong together. If Fate has brought Beth into your life, now of all times, then I have to believe that she is there for a reason. I have to, or lose my mind with worry," Caspian admitted."Thank you for that. I've been without a mate for so long, I thought Fate had forgotten me," Gavriel said ruefully.
"If there's one thing I've learned in my short life, it's that Fate has a design of her own weaving. We may only catch a glimpse of the pieces, but there is a much bigger tapestry being woven that we know nothing of. Fate didn't forget you Gavriel, she was just waiting for our Bethy to grow up," Caspian said kindly."Thank all the Gods you watched over her the way you did, or I may not have gotten her at all. Is there anything I can do to minimize the, um, accidents?"
