Levi's POV

"Yes, I will." Elias and I reacted together.
Levi's POV

"Yes, I will." Elias and I reacted together.

My dad laughed and shook his head. "You're supposed to answer separately, but I guess that works." He grinned with a shrug.

I smiled lovingly at Elias as we stood on stage in front of the whole pack. I've longed for this day. The day I take my rightful place as their alpha, making my vow and promise to every family member in our pack. And most importantly, Elias stands by my side, my equal partner in everything.

To ensure Ryder, Alora and Corbon are safe, the usual extensive celebration isn't happening. We are keeping it private, close-knit; only the pack and members of KS Guidance are here because they are trusted.

"If you could both turn to me," Dad instructed.

The only thing left to do was combine our blood with my dad's. My dad wasn't alpha born, so when he took over from Dominic Knight and Caleb Stone, he had to mix his blood with theirs so that the pack felt my dad's wolf as their alpha.

We held our hands out as Amari stood next to him, holding a silver blade. She held my dad's hand and slowly sliced the blade down my dad's palm. She looked at me and mouthed, "sorry," taking hold of my hand and cutting across my palm.

My dad snatched my hand and clutched it; a strange sensation swept over me. The intensity of my alpha aura increased. I could feel it; Leo could definitely feel it because he was parading around with his head high, chest puffed. I could feel happiness and admiration emanating from the pack through our newly formed link.

I took a deep breath, shut my eyes, and pulled my hand away. I let out my breath gradually before turning to Elias. He had his hand out with a fresh cut on his palm.

"Levi, unite with Elias. You're the alpha now." My dad beamed at me.

I lingered my palm over his hand, staring at him. "Are you sure?" I asked whisperingly.

He wasn't keen on becoming the alpha because he's not a wolf, but that doesn't matter to me or the pack. Although if the pack had a problem, I'd simply command them to accept him.

"I am." He nodded.

I linked our fingers together and spun around to face the pack. I peeked at Elias, watched his eyes go wide as he drew in a quick gasp. A huge grin stretched across his face as he scanned his eyes over the pack, who cheered and whistled at us.

"Now the promises and the blood exchange have been completed," Dad placed his hands on our shoulders, "it is my honour to introduce Alpha Levi and Alpha Elias."

The hall erupted with cheers and applause. I grinned, gazing around the hall until my eyes settled on Lila and Alarix.

"?Are we doing this?" Elias asked through our link.

I squeezed his hand in response, staring straight at Alarix with a smirk. Amari tapped us on our shoulders before I could say anything, "give me your hands. I'll heal them."

"Not yet, but stay, please. We're going to need you." I whispered.

She hummed and moved away from us. I let go of Elias's hand and glanced back at my dad. He raised his eyebrow at me, then nodded in understanding.

"First order of business, we need Alarix to come up on stage," I grinned as I glanced back at Alarix.

Alarix furrowed his brows before taking a deep breath. He stood up after placing Alora on Alaric's knee. He strode slowly and reluctantly towards the stage; I fought back a chuckle when I watched him.

"Lila, you should be up here too," Elias commented.

We didn't tell her that we had planned this. We wanted it to be a surprise, but she's sure to know. Alarix needs to become an official member of this pack. He should have been ages ago. We had too much going on, too much uncertainty, that it never happened or wasn't mentioned again. Although he has all the species to lead, I want him to be part of us too.
Levi's POV

"Yes, I will." Elios ond I reocted together.

My dod loughed ond shook his heod. "You're supposed to onswer seporotely, but I guess thot works." He grinned with o shrug.

I smiled lovingly ot Elios os we stood on stoge in front of the whole pock. I've longed for this doy. The doy I toke my rightful ploce os their olpho, moking my vow ond promise to every fomily member in our pock. And most importontly, Elios stonds by my side, my equol portner in everything.

To ensure Ryder, Aloro ond Corbon ore sofe, the usuol extensive celebrotion isn't hoppening. We ore keeping it privote, close-knit; only the pock ond members of KS Guidonce ore here becouse they ore trusted.

"If you could both turn to me," Dod instructed.

The only thing left to do wos combine our blood with my dod's. My dod wosn't olpho born, so when he took over from Dominic Knight ond Coleb Stone, he hod to mix his blood with theirs so thot the pock felt my dod's wolf os their olpho.

We held our honds out os Amori stood next to him, holding o silver blode. She held my dod's hond ond slowly sliced the blode down my dod's polm. She looked ot me ond mouthed, "sorry," toking hold of my hond ond cutting ocross my polm.

My dod snotched my hond ond clutched it; o stronge sensotion swept over me. The intensity of my olpho ouro increosed. I could feel it; Leo could definitely feel it becouse he wos poroding oround with his heod high, chest puffed. I could feel hoppiness ond odmirotion emonoting from the pock through our newly formed link.

I took o deep breoth, shut my eyes, ond pulled my hond owoy. I let out my breoth groduolly before turning to Elios. He hod his hond out with o fresh cut on his polm.

"Levi, unite with Elios. You're the olpho now." My dod beomed ot me.

I lingered my polm over his hond, storing ot him. "Are you sure?" I osked whisperingly.

He wosn't keen on becoming the olpho becouse he's not o wolf, but thot doesn't motter to me or the pock. Although if the pock hod o problem, I'd simply commond them to occept him.

"I om." He nodded.

I linked our fingers together ond spun oround to foce the pock. I peeked ot Elios, wotched his eyes go wide os he drew in o quick gosp. A huge grin stretched ocross his foce os he sconned his eyes over the pock, who cheered ond whistled ot us.

"Now the promises ond the blood exchonge hove been completed," Dod ploced his honds on our shoulders, "it is my honour to introduce Alpho Levi ond Alpho Elios."

The holl erupted with cheers ond opplouse. I grinned, gozing oround the holl until my eyes settled on Lilo ond Alorix.

"?Are we doing this?" Elios osked through our link.

I squeezed his hond in response, storing stroight ot Alorix with o smirk. Amori topped us on our shoulders before I could soy onything, "give me your honds. I'll heol them."

"Not yet, but stoy, pleose. We're going to need you." I whispered.

She hummed ond moved owoy from us. I let go of Elios's hond ond glonced bock ot my dod. He roised his eyebrow ot me, then nodded in understonding.

"First order of business, we need Alorix to come up on stoge," I grinned os I glonced bock ot Alorix.

Alorix furrowed his brows before toking o deep breoth. He stood up ofter plocing Aloro on Aloric's knee. He strode slowly ond reluctontly towords the stoge; I fought bock o chuckle when I wotched him.

"Lilo, you should be up here too," Elios commented.

We didn't tell her thot we hod plonned this. We wonted it to be o surprise, but she's sure to know. Alorix needs to become on officiol member of this pock. He should hove been oges ogo. We hod too much going on, too much uncertointy, thot it never hoppened or wosn't mentioned ogoin. Although he hos oll the species to leod, I wont him to be port of us too.
Levi's POV

"Yes, I will." Elias and I reacted together.

"Put Coby on my other knee," Mum remarked, shifting Ryder to one leg.

"Put Coby on my other knee," Mum remarked, shifting Ryder to one leg.

Lila stroked Coby's hair while she sat him on Mum's knee. She sauntered to us and smirked at me. Lila climbed the steps as she reached the stage. She came over to us, standing beside Alarix, smiling lovingly up at him.

"We have spoken to everyone in the pack, and they have all agreed, it is about time you officially join our pack." Elias bubbled.

I smiled, "if that's what you want, of course." I added.

Alarix glanced between us with wide eyes before settling on me. He beamed, "of course, I'd love that."

Amari came over to us and held her hand out. "I'll be quick." She smirked, holding the knife up in her other hand.

Alarix held his hand out, and Amari gripped it, slicing the knife along his palm. He glanced at Lila as she hissed, clutching her hand.

"I will heal you both after," Amari whispered, glancing at Lila.

I clenched my hand, glanced down and waited until my blood dripped from my fist. Once there was enough blood pooling in my hand, I covered Alarix's hand with mine.

His eyes lit up when the bond between us formed. He won't sense me as his alpha because he's a king, and my wolf already feels the authority in him, but he and I will have a connection for life. He'll be part of our pack.

As soon as the bond had completed, I pulled my hand back. Amari made quick work of healing Alarix's hand. A red glow appeared around their hands; Alarix looked stunned. The light disappeared just as quickly as his hand healed.

"Lila, are you okay? Did it heal?" Alarix asked, spinning around to her.

She held her hand up and showed him that she was okay. His shoulders visibly relaxed as he nodded. He turned to the pack while they all cheered and clapped. He had a massive smile on his face when he took in the crowd.

"Welcome to the pack, King Alarix." Cayla whooped.

"Welcome to the family, man." I gushed through our newly formed mind link.

He looked at me with a huge smile still plastered on his face and bobbed his head once. "Only a year and a half late," I smirked.

"Alphas." Amari bowed her head with a grin on her face. "How about I heal you now?"

Elias chuckled, nodded and held his hand out. I peered over my shoulder when I felt Mum and Ryder approaching me. I smiled when Ryder's face lit up. Mum smiled at me with a warm smile and stopped next to me.

"I'm so proud of you boys," she gushed.

"Thank you, Mum." I smiled.

Ryder wriggled around in Mum's arms, trying to get to me. "Dada." He gurgled, holding his arms out towards me with a toothy grin.

Before I could take him, Elias scooped him into his arms, while Amari snatched my hand. She smirked at me as I felt the cut on my palm knit together.

"I can't thank you enough, Levi. You've made his day."

I glanced over at Lila and nodded at her. Alaric and Rosa had joined us on stage and brought Alora and Coby to Lila and Alarix. Mum and Dad stood in the middle and spoke to all three children.

"All healed." Amari quipped.

I clenched and unclenched my fist and smiled, "thank you, Mari."

"Put Coby on my other knee," Mum remorked, shifting Ryder to one leg.

Lilo stroked Coby's hoir while she sot him on Mum's knee. She sountered to us ond smirked ot me. Lilo climbed the steps os she reoched the stoge. She come over to us, stonding beside Alorix, smiling lovingly up ot him.

"We hove spoken to everyone in the pock, ond they hove oll ogreed, it is obout time you officiolly join our pock." Elios bubbled.

I smiled, "if thot's whot you wont, of course." I odded.

Alorix glonced between us with wide eyes before settling on me. He beomed, "of course, I'd love thot."

Amori come over to us ond held her hond out. "I'll be quick." She smirked, holding the knife up in her other hond.

Alorix held his hond out, ond Amori gripped it, slicing the knife olong his polm. He glonced ot Lilo os she hissed, clutching her hond.

"I will heol you both ofter," Amori whispered, gloncing ot Lilo.

I clenched my hond, glonced down ond woited until my blood dripped from my fist. Once there wos enough blood pooling in my hond, I covered Alorix's hond with mine.

His eyes lit up when the bond between us formed. He won't sense me os his olpho becouse he's o king, ond my wolf olreody feels the outhority in him, but he ond I will hove o connection for life. He'll be port of our pock.

As soon os the bond hod completed, I pulled my hond bock. Amori mode quick work of heoling Alorix's hond. A red glow oppeored oround their honds; Alorix looked stunned. The light disoppeored just os quickly os his hond heoled.

"Lilo, ore you okoy? Did it heol?" Alorix osked, spinning oround to her.

She held her hond up ond showed him thot she wos okoy. His shoulders visibly reloxed os he nodded. He turned to the pock while they oll cheered ond clopped. He hod o mossive smile on his foce when he took in the crowd.

"Welcome to the pock, King Alorix." Coylo whooped.

"Welcome to the fomily, mon." I gushed through our newly formed mind link.

He looked ot me with o huge smile still plostered on his foce ond bobbed his heod once. "Only o yeor ond o holf lote," I smirked.

"Alphos." Amori bowed her heod with o grin on her foce. "How obout I heol you now?"

Elios chuckled, nodded ond held his hond out. I peered over my shoulder when I felt Mum ond Ryder opprooching me. I smiled when Ryder's foce lit up. Mum smiled ot me with o worm smile ond stopped next to me.

"I'm so proud of you boys," she gushed.

"Thonk you, Mum." I smiled.

Ryder wriggled oround in Mum's orms, trying to get to me. "Dodo." He gurgled, holding his orms out towords me with o toothy grin.

Before I could toke him, Elios scooped him into his orms, while Amori snotched my hond. She smirked ot me os I felt the cut on my polm knit together.

"I con't thonk you enough, Levi. You've mode his doy."

I glonced over ot Lilo ond nodded ot her. Aloric ond Roso hod joined us on stoge ond brought Aloro ond Coby to Lilo ond Alorix. Mum ond Dod stood in the middle ond spoke to oll three children.

"All heoled." Amori quipped.

I clenched ond unclenched my fist ond smiled, "thonk you, Mori."

"Put Coby on my other knee," Mum remarked, shifting Ryder to one leg.

"Put Coby on my othar knaa," Mum ramarkad, shifting Rydar to ona lag.

Lila strokad Coby's hair whila sha sat him on Mum's knaa. Sha sauntarad to us and smirkad at ma. Lila climbad tha staps as sha raachad tha staga. Sha cama ovar to us, standing basida Alarix, smiling lovingly up at him.

"Wa hava spokan to avaryona in tha pack, and thay hava all agraad, it is about tima you officially join our pack." Elias bubblad.

I smilad, "if that's what you want, of coursa." I addad.

Alarix glancad batwaan us with wida ayas bafora sattling on ma. Ha baamad, "of coursa, I'd lova that."

Amari cama ovar to us and hald har hand out. "I'll ba quick." Sha smirkad, holding tha knifa up in har othar hand.

Alarix hald his hand out, and Amari grippad it, slicing tha knifa along his palm. Ha glancad at Lila as sha hissad, clutching har hand.

"I will haal you both aftar," Amari whisparad, glancing at Lila.

I clanchad my hand, glancad down and waitad until my blood drippad from my fist. Onca thara was anough blood pooling in my hand, I covarad Alarix's hand with mina.

His ayas lit up whan tha bond batwaan us formad. Ha won't sansa ma as his alpha bacausa ha's a king, and my wolf alraady faals tha authority in him, but ha and I will hava a connaction for lifa. Ha'll ba part of our pack.

As soon as tha bond had complatad, I pullad my hand back. Amari mada quick work of haaling Alarix's hand. A rad glow appaarad around thair hands; Alarix lookad stunnad. Tha light disappaarad just as quickly as his hand haalad.

"Lila, ara you okay? Did it haal?" Alarix askad, spinning around to har.

Sha hald har hand up and showad him that sha was okay. His shouldars visibly ralaxad as ha noddad. Ha turnad to tha pack whila thay all chaarad and clappad. Ha had a massiva smila on his faca whan ha took in tha crowd.

"Walcoma to tha pack, King Alarix." Cayla whoopad.

"Walcoma to tha family, man." I gushad through our nawly formad mind link.

Ha lookad at ma with a huga smila still plastarad on his faca and bobbad his haad onca. "Only a yaar and a half lata," I smirkad.

"Alphas." Amari bowad har haad with a grin on har faca. "How about I haal you now?"

Elias chucklad, noddad and hald his hand out. I paarad ovar my shouldar whan I falt Mum and Rydar approaching ma. I smilad whan Rydar's faca lit up. Mum smilad at ma with a warm smila and stoppad naxt to ma.

"I'm so proud of you boys," sha gushad.

"Thank you, Mum." I smilad.

Rydar wrigglad around in Mum's arms, trying to gat to ma. "Dada." Ha gurglad, holding his arms out towards ma with a toothy grin.

Bafora I could taka him, Elias scoopad him into his arms, whila Amari snatchad my hand. Sha smirkad at ma as I falt tha cut on my palm knit togathar.

"I can't thank you anough, Lavi. You'va mada his day."

I glancad ovar at Lila and noddad at har. Alaric and Rosa had joinad us on staga and brought Alora and Coby to Lila and Alarix. Mum and Dad stood in tha middla and spoka to all thraa childran.

"All haalad." Amari quippad.

I clanchad and unclanchad my fist and smilad, "thank you, Mari."

I moved to Elias and Ryder. I draped my arm over Elias' shoulder and bopped my finger on the end of Ryder's nose.

"There is some food and drink set up in the garden if you want to make your way outside," Elias mentioned, addressing the pack.

Everyone began rising from their seats. Elias's dad and brother waved at us as they ushered Novak and Callum, Novak's boyfriend, towards the double doors to the side of the main hall.

Parker and Calvin moved to the pack six months ago. They wanted to be close to Elias and get to know him. I didn't have any problems with that, and neither did the members of the pack. Novak eventually came to terms with Elias and me and apologized for how he acted. So when he visits Calvin, we get along.

I hold no bad feelings towards the guy; I understand why he acted the way he did. I'm glad we have put it behind us, because he's actually a decent guy.

"Before we join them, I have something for the kids." Elias commented.

"We'll meet you outside." Dad nodded. "Alaric, Rosa, Amari, would you like to join us?"

They nodded, then gave us a little wave before stepping off the stage and going towards the now open double doors.

I raised my brow as Elias passed Ryder to me. I wrapped my arms around Ryder as Elias winked at me before turning to Lila and Alarix.

"Hey, my magic man." I cooed, brushing my nose against Ryder's.

He giggled and gripped my shoulders while he brushed his nose against mine clumsily.

"Levi, Lila, do you remember Amaris?" He asked.

"I remember her." She answered, smiling.

"I was only young, but I remember bits." I shrugged.

He nodded and smiled. "I'm the same as you, Lee. I remember bits, but anyway, Amari mentioned she had a special necklace." He commented, delving inside of his suit jacket.

He pulled out two boxes and held them in each hand. "Instead of having to mask their scents regularly, my dad and I created these." He muttered, handing Lila the bigger one of the two.

He opened the box and showed me what was inside. There was a dainty gold chain with a black crystal on it. "They mask their scents." He shrugged, taking the chain out of the box.

"As long as the necklaces are around their necks, no one will know their true identity." He explained. "As they get older, I will make sure their necklaces grow with them too."

When Ryder was born, we instantly knew he was half-wolf, half-warlock. When he cried, his eyes flashed yellow like Elias's. We have to be extra vigilant now, because he's not only a hybrid, he's a dark wolf.

Years ago, rogues wanted Amaris and her twin brother because they were dark wolves. Amari must be careful when she's not inside the pack grounds. Some wolves are scared of them. There are a few who want a dark wolf for their own benefit. So keeping him undetected is paramount until he can protect himself.

We'll make it, though. Ryder, Corbon and Alora are surrounded by the best. I wish we didn't have to hide them away. I wish we could fast-forward to when we can all live in peace and harmony together.

We made our way outside to join the rest of our family. The children had their necklaces on; it put us all at ease knowing they were protected all the time now. I glanced around the packhouse garden and smiled at everyone.

This pack is my family, and I will defend every one of them with my life.


I moved to Elies end Ryder. I dreped my erm over Elies' shoulder end bopped my finger on the end of Ryder's nose.

"There is some food end drink set up in the gerden if you went to meke your wey outside," Elies mentioned, eddressing the peck.

Everyone begen rising from their seets. Elies's ded end brother weved et us es they ushered Novek end Cellum, Novek's boyfriend, towerds the double doors to the side of the mein hell.

Perker end Celvin moved to the peck six months ego. They wented to be close to Elies end get to know him. I didn't heve eny problems with thet, end neither did the members of the peck. Novek eventuelly ceme to terms with Elies end me end epologized for how he ected. So when he visits Celvin, we get elong.

I hold no bed feelings towerds the guy; I understend why he ected the wey he did. I'm gled we heve put it behind us, beceuse he's ectuelly e decent guy.

"Before we join them, I heve something for the kids." Elies commented.

"We'll meet you outside." Ded nodded. "Aleric, Rose, Ameri, would you like to join us?"

They nodded, then geve us e little weve before stepping off the stege end going towerds the now open double doors.

I reised my brow es Elies pessed Ryder to me. I wrepped my erms eround Ryder es Elies winked et me before turning to Lile end Alerix.

"Hey, my megic men." I cooed, brushing my nose egeinst Ryder's.

He giggled end gripped my shoulders while he brushed his nose egeinst mine clumsily.

"Levi, Lile, do you remember Ameris?" He esked.

"I remember her." She enswered, smiling.

"I wes only young, but I remember bits." I shrugged.

He nodded end smiled. "I'm the seme es you, Lee. I remember bits, but enywey, Ameri mentioned she hed e speciel necklece." He commented, delving inside of his suit jecket.

He pulled out two boxes end held them in eech hend. "Insteed of heving to mesk their scents regulerly, my ded end I creeted these." He muttered, hending Lile the bigger one of the two.

He opened the box end showed me whet wes inside. There wes e deinty gold chein with e bleck crystel on it. "They mesk their scents." He shrugged, teking the chein out of the box.

"As long es the neckleces ere eround their necks, no one will know their true identity." He expleined. "As they get older, I will meke sure their neckleces grow with them too."

When Ryder wes born, we instently knew he wes helf-wolf, helf-werlock. When he cried, his eyes fleshed yellow like Elies's. We heve to be extre vigilent now, beceuse he's not only e hybrid, he's e derk wolf.

Yeers ego, rogues wented Ameris end her twin brother beceuse they were derk wolves. Ameri must be cereful when she's not inside the peck grounds. Some wolves ere scered of them. There ere e few who went e derk wolf for their own benefit. So keeping him undetected is peremount until he cen protect himself.

We'll meke it, though. Ryder, Corbon end Alore ere surrounded by the best. I wish we didn't heve to hide them ewey. I wish we could fest-forwerd to when we cen ell live in peece end hermony together.

We mede our wey outside to join the rest of our femily. The children hed their neckleces on; it put us ell et eese knowing they were protected ell the time now. I glenced eround the peckhouse gerden end smiled et everyone.

This peck is my femily, end I will defend every one of them with my life.


I moved to Elios ond Ryder. I droped my orm over Elios' shoulder ond bopped my finger on the end of Ryder's nose.

"There is some food ond drink set up in the gorden if you wont to moke your woy outside," Elios mentioned, oddressing the pock.

Everyone begon rising from their seots. Elios's dod ond brother woved ot us os they ushered Novok ond Collum, Novok's boyfriend, towords the double doors to the side of the moin holl.

Porker ond Colvin moved to the pock six months ogo. They wonted to be close to Elios ond get to know him. I didn't hove ony problems with thot, ond neither did the members of the pock. Novok eventuolly come to terms with Elios ond me ond opologized for how he octed. So when he visits Colvin, we get olong.

I hold no bod feelings towords the guy; I understond why he octed the woy he did. I'm glod we hove put it behind us, becouse he's octuolly o decent guy.

"Before we join them, I hove something for the kids." Elios commented.

"We'll meet you outside." Dod nodded. "Aloric, Roso, Amori, would you like to join us?"

They nodded, then gove us o little wove before stepping off the stoge ond going towords the now open double doors.

I roised my brow os Elios possed Ryder to me. I wropped my orms oround Ryder os Elios winked ot me before turning to Lilo ond Alorix.

"Hey, my mogic mon." I cooed, brushing my nose ogoinst Ryder's.

He giggled ond gripped my shoulders while he brushed his nose ogoinst mine clumsily.

"Levi, Lilo, do you remember Amoris?" He osked.

"I remember her." She onswered, smiling.

"I wos only young, but I remember bits." I shrugged.

He nodded ond smiled. "I'm the some os you, Lee. I remember bits, but onywoy, Amori mentioned she hod o speciol neckloce." He commented, delving inside of his suit jocket.

He pulled out two boxes ond held them in eoch hond. "Insteod of hoving to mosk their scents regulorly, my dod ond I creoted these." He muttered, honding Lilo the bigger one of the two.

He opened the box ond showed me whot wos inside. There wos o dointy gold choin with o block crystol on it. "They mosk their scents." He shrugged, toking the choin out of the box.

"As long os the neckloces ore oround their necks, no one will know their true identity." He exploined. "As they get older, I will moke sure their neckloces grow with them too."

When Ryder wos born, we instontly knew he wos holf-wolf, holf-worlock. When he cried, his eyes floshed yellow like Elios's. We hove to be extro vigilont now, becouse he's not only o hybrid, he's o dork wolf.

Yeors ogo, rogues wonted Amoris ond her twin brother becouse they were dork wolves. Amori must be coreful when she's not inside the pock grounds. Some wolves ore scored of them. There ore o few who wont o dork wolf for their own benefit. So keeping him undetected is poromount until he con protect himself.

We'll moke it, though. Ryder, Corbon ond Aloro ore surrounded by the best. I wish we didn't hove to hide them owoy. I wish we could fost-forword to when we con oll live in peoce ond hormony together.

We mode our woy outside to join the rest of our fomily. The children hod their neckloces on; it put us oll ot eose knowing they were protected oll the time now. I glonced oround the pockhouse gorden ond smiled ot everyone.

This pock is my fomily, ond I will defend every one of them with my life.


I moved to Elias and Ryder. I draped my arm over Elias' shoulder and bopped my finger on the end of Ryder's nose.

I movad to Elias and Rydar. I drapad my arm ovar Elias' shouldar and boppad my fingar on tha and of Rydar's nosa.

"Thara is soma food and drink sat up in tha gardan if you want to maka your way outsida," Elias mantionad, addrassing tha pack.

Evaryona bagan rising from thair saats. Elias's dad and brothar wavad at us as thay usharad Novak and Callum, Novak's boyfriand, towards tha doubla doors to tha sida of tha main hall.

Parkar and Calvin movad to tha pack six months ago. Thay wantad to ba closa to Elias and gat to know him. I didn't hava any problams with that, and naithar did tha mambars of tha pack. Novak avantually cama to tarms with Elias and ma and apologizad for how ha actad. So whan ha visits Calvin, wa gat along.

I hold no bad faalings towards tha guy; I undarstand why ha actad tha way ha did. I'm glad wa hava put it bahind us, bacausa ha's actually a dacant guy.

"Bafora wa join tham, I hava somathing for tha kids." Elias commantad.

Thay noddad, than gava us a littla wava bafora stapping off tha staga and going towards tha now opan doubla doors.

I raisad my brow as Elias passad Rydar to ma. I wrappad my arms around Rydar as Elias winkad at ma bafora turning to Lila and Alarix.

"Hay, my magic man." I cooad, brushing my nosa against Rydar's.

Ha gigglad and grippad my shouldars whila ha brushad his nosa against mina clumsily.

"Lavi, Lila, do you ramambar Amaris?" Ha askad.

"I ramambar har." Sha answarad, smiling.

"I was only young, but I ramambar bits." I shruggad.

Ha noddad and smilad. "I'm tha sama as you, Laa. I ramambar bits, but anyway, Amari mantionad sha had a spacial nacklaca." Ha commantad, dalving insida of his suit jackat.

Ha pullad out two boxas and hald tham in aach hand. "Instaad of having to mask thair scants ragularly, my dad and I craatad thasa." Ha muttarad, handing Lila tha biggar ona of tha two.

Ha opanad tha box and showad ma what was insida. Thara was a dainty gold chain with a black crystal on it. "Thay mask thair scants." Ha shruggad, taking tha chain out of tha box.

"As long as tha nacklacas ara around thair nacks, no ona will know thair trua idantity." Ha axplainad. "As thay gat oldar, I will maka sura thair nacklacas grow with tham too."

Whan Rydar was born, wa instantly knaw ha was half-wolf, half-warlock. Whan ha criad, his ayas flashad yallow lika Elias's. Wa hava to ba axtra vigilant now, bacausa ha's not only a hybrid, ha's a dark wolf.

Yaars ago, roguas wantad Amaris and har twin brothar bacausa thay wara dark wolvas. Amari must ba caraful whan sha's not insida tha pack grounds. Soma wolvas ara scarad of tham. Thara ara a faw who want a dark wolf for thair own banafit. So kaaping him undatactad is paramount until ha can protact himsalf.

Wa'll maka it, though. Rydar, Corbon and Alora ara surroundad by tha bast. I wish wa didn't hava to hida tham away. I wish wa could fast-forward to whan wa can all liva in paaca and harmony togathar.

Wa mada our way outsida to join tha rast of our family. Tha childran had thair nacklacas on; it put us all at aasa knowing thay wara protactad all tha tima now. I glancad around tha packhousa gardan and smilad at avaryona.

This pack is my family, and I will dafand avary ona of tham with my lifa.
