My ex-mate walked in only seconds after his scent invaded my nostrils, the moment I saw him a wave of nostalgia and longing took over I wanted to run to him hugged him and tell him how much I missed him but the feeling went as fast as it came. Suddenly a blonde came and attached herself to his arm kissing his cheek, this made my wolf growl in my head I on the other hand just looked the other way. As if he could sense my uneasiness Alessandro stood in front of me in a defensive stance at that moment my mates head snapped in our direction he looked at Alessandro then his gaze fell on me he stared at me for a bit as if trying to figure out where he's seen me before, as soon as realization hit he opened his mouth to say something but was interrupted by my brother and Genevieve's entrance.
"Omg! Rose I can't believe your here" Genevieve screamed as she ran over pulling me into a hug
"can't breathe" I choked out. She let go of me and smiled at me sheepish while mouthing an
I nodded and just gave her a reassuring smile. she turned to Alessandro and hugged him too before going back into the embrace of her mate
"morning sis how'd you guys sleep?" Michael asks
"Good" I replied
"Did you guys have breakfast yet?" Genevieve asks
My mind suddenly went back to my meal but I longer had an appetite I just nodded to him then excused myself from the room
"you OK mom?" Alessandro asked me through our link
"I'm fine" I tell him
I walked outside and into the woods to clear my head, I didn't realize how long I was walking or how far I'd gone until I heard shuffling behind in the woods, I turned my head and sniffed the air it smelt like garbage and dirt
"rogue" my wolf Althea said in my head then an auburn coloured wolf walked out of the bushes growling at me and showing its canines.
I turned around to run but another one walked up behind me then a third wolf came into view.
"Fighting it is then" I thought to myself.
The first wolf lunged at me, I side stepped him and turn to see him charging at me again I grabbed his neck and squeezed the wolf whimpered in my hands before I snapped his neck (did I mention I was a warrior in my pack and hella strong) the second wolf charged at me trying to bite my hands and legs I grabbed his nozzle and flipped him, he landed in a tree the third one caught me off guard and crashed his body unto mine making me fall to the ground the wolf jumped on top of me trying to bite my neck I grabbed his mouth and used my strength to pull his mouth apart I pulled until I ripped his mouth off I sat there for a minute trying to catch my breath I was exhausted.
I got up to leave when the wolf I flipped in the tree grabbed my leg I kicked him repeatedly until he let go how ever before I could make a move a big brown wolf appeared and killed him then I heard Alessandro calling me
"Mom!!!! mom are you OK did they hurt you?" He asked checking me for injuries he was furious when he saw my foot
"He bit you!!!"
He was shaking with anger I placed my hand on his shoulder and he immediately calmed down he then turned to me then picked me up he look me over and frowned
"Mom I told you not to go anywhere far with out me and see now you got hurt"
"I'm fine," I say
"Besides I don't need you to take care of me are you forgetting who trained you?"
He smiled with admiration in his eyes which then turned to worry
"i know you can take care of yourself mom but still I'm not letting you go anywhere without me again ever and that's final"
I sighed knowing I was fighting a loosing battle it was pointless to argue with Alessandro when he was in "protect mom at all cost" mode.
"I'm trying to figure out if you're actually the parent or Alessandro" my brother's voice said bringing my attention to him
I had almost forgotten about him and that other wolf I then turned to him and asked
"Where's that wolf I saw earlier?"
"He went to check the border for any more rogues he'll meet us at the pack house" micheal replies
"Who is he anyway one of the warriors?"
"No it's the alpha's younger brother Jermaine he got here this morning"
I laid my head on Alessandro's shoulder feeling sleepy all of a sudden, I closed my eyes and let the darkness take over.
I heard voices as I woke up and shifted in the soft bed I tried getting up from the bed but a wave of pain flashed through my leg then the events of this morning came rushing back. I examined my sore leg to find it bandaged it will heal in a day or two I thought to myself. I hopped to the door and headed downstairs to find Alessandro micheal and an unknown man talking in the living room everyone look up at me as I entered the room.
"How are you feeling mom?" Alessandro asked helping me into a chair
"I'm fine sweetie" I replied as he sat back down beside Michael.
"So, your Michael's baby sister whom he can't stop talking about"
"I'm Jermaine black brother of the alpha" he says stretching his hands out to me
I shook his hand before saying
"Rosalyn Parker sister of the beta"
At the same time a voice I had forgotten spoke up
"So it was you, for a second I thought I was hallucinating, long time no see Rosalyn"
We all turned to the person who spoke it was the one and only alpha ke'shaun black my ex-mate. It seemed as though Alessandro recognized him because he got up in a defensive stance as he stood up in front of me blocking me from his father.
"And who are you?" Ke'shaun asked with annoyance laced in his voice at Alessandro's growling.
"Alpha this is my sister and her son Alessandro remember I told you they were coming for my wedding" Micheal says
"Ah yes I remember now" he said still looking in my direction
He walked towards us and Alessandro growled again but he wasn't fazed by it he looked at Alessandro as if taking in his features, his eyes widened for a second before he turned to me his face stoic and emotionless
"Rosalyn who is the father of your son?" He asks
I was shocked that he picked up so fast but then again Alessandro was the splitting image of him. I turned to look at him but I didn't answer he asked me the question again by this he was seething with anger
"Is he mine?" He asked anger rolling off him in waves
By now everyone was steering at us in confusion there was also more person's in the living room than there was before including Genevieve.
"I said is he mine!!!!!!?" Ke'shaun shouted making the house boom from the power in his voice but his alpha tone doesn't work on me.
I stood up and walked away but he grabbed my hand and gripped it I winced at the pain that went through my arm Alessandro stood up to approach us but I stopped him and yanked my arm away from ke'shaun's grip I sighed knowing he would have figured it out sooner or later I turned to look at Alessandro to ask if he was OK with me telling him, he nodded I then turned back to ke'shaun saying
"17 years ago on that night we had sex, after what happened next I left then a few days later I found out I was pregnant so to answer your question yes Alessandro is your son".
As the words left my lips I felt myself being pinned to the wall I was being held by a very angry alpha
"You took my son away from me for 17years!!! He yelled
There was a pain in my back from when I hit the wall
"You took this packs future alpha for 17 years when he should have been training to take over the pack!!? You didn't even bother to at least tell me I have a son!!?"
I used some of my strength to push him off me then i turned to him with a glare
"First of all he is my son not yours you rejected me so that means you rejected him you have no claim over him and neither does your pack" the pack members who were present which was about half the pack all growled at my words
I ignored them and turned back to ke'shaun
"And don't think for a second there's anything you can do about it all mighty alpha because you, better than anyone know the law" I said walking away
ke'shaun grabbed my hand again tighter than he previously did which made me cry out in pain but before he could say anything he was up against the wall. What I saw in front of me made me gasped in shock.
