I did. Mostly. Except for the parts when Peter sucked all the air my from lungs and I wanted to die.
His wolf growled. Harley is my mate.Of course. I meant, is it correct that she’s not your true mate? It was said as if that would mean he didn’t really have any rights to Harley, and that was utter bullshit.
Refusing to give Clive any emotion to feed on, Jesse called on all his experience at keeping his expression blank. That’s not important.And yet, by claiming her you have deprived her of the chance to be with her true mate. That strikes me as a selfish act.It is. But Jesse didn’t have to justify himself to this weird fucker, and he wouldn’t apologize for claiming Harley.
Clive looked at him expectantly, but he sighed when Jesse said no more. Moving his attention back to his daughter, he smiled. It’s good that you have made your way back to our world. I would have preferred it if you rejoined your pride.It’s not a conventional pride. It needs tidying. Better order. Someone strong enough to lead the strong personalities within it. His gray eyes slid back to Jesse. How would you feel about being an Alpha, Dalton?
Jesse met his probing gaze without flinching. My current position suits me.
Ah yes, you’re an enforcer. That level of power satisfies you? I find that hard to believe. I can sense how dominant you are.Of course. But Neil had already told everyone that the only reason he’d kept his silence was that I’d threatened to accuse his son of the crime if he told anyone. So when I spoke up against Wayne, no one was surprised. If anything, it gave further weight to Neil’s account.
Anger and sadness rose up in Ally. No one from your pack doubted the Seer?If they did, they kept that to themselves.
Your parents accepted the Seer’s tale, just like that?I think they didn’t want to believe it, but then Wayne said I’d confessed the crime to him. The girl had either convinced herself it was me or she was coached by the cops, because she said in court that she remembered my voice telling her to ‘shut up and take it.’ Derren had almost fucking lost it that day. Being accused of something so distasteful had made him feel sick and enraged.
