Grannie, Vida said, that’s pathetic, even for you. You want one of the big kids to drive?
I don’t want you to lose your shit and do something drastic.You know I’d never assassinate an entire pack in retaliation for something a couple of wolves did.
That was the thing, though. The entire pack had turned on her. Although their betrayal hurt, she didn’t think buying a skank’s lies warranted death. I’m away from there now. It doesn’t matter anymore.They don’t deserve your protection, Ally, insisted Roni, unwrapping a lollipop.Derren looked at his mate, understanding why she was reluctant to share the tale but knowing it was important that her family knew. The Holts might not be her biological relatives, but DNA didn’t make family. Either you tell them or I tell them.
I get that you don’t want the Collingwood Pack to be under a mass attack, but your safety is more important to me than theirs. That’s what it boils down to. Derren wished he could be sure that Rachelle would quit bothering Ally, but the kind of hatred that female harbored for his mate didn’t just evaporate.With a resigned sigh, Ally nodded. She told them everything, from Rachelle’s very first accusation to the visit the skank had made with Zeke and Matt to Mercury Pack territory a little while ago.
When she was done, all four Holt males were scowling. What a fucking bitch, spat Cain. And this Zeke guy is no better.
The Alpha’s a shithead too, stated Dan. He should have protected you.Hector was guilty. I know he was.
He told me. No, he taunted me with it. It wasn’t until after we left the pack, though. Just before he went to live with my parents. Jenny, the girl who was assaulted and killed, was such a sweetie. She was a great help to me, and I often wonder if that was why he did what he did. He didn’t like to share my attention, you see. He didn’t like me having friends or even Thad, so he tried to isolate me.Jesse recalled Garth’s tale of how Adriane had isolated herself from the pack. It would seem that Hector was responsible for that.
Nick’s mouth twisted. What made you and your mate step down from your position as Alpha pair?Every Mercury wolf stilled. It was Nick who spoke. Blackmailed?
