Jackie couldn’t breathe as she stood in front of Kane, anger coursing through her veins. How dare he come back and call her a selfish person? Does he even know how selfish he sounded just now? Demanding her to go back for him? Go back to the wolf that had rejected her? Peh, she would rather put needles in her eyes than go back to him.
He chose his fate, so he lives it.
“I don’t care what you do to him,” Jackie said quietly as she glared down at the wolf on the ground, “but I don’t want to see him again. Dad,” she said, turning to him with wide eyes. She felt tired, so, so tired now that the anger has vanished. “I don’t want to see him again. Or anyone from his pack.”
“Anything for you baby,” her mum cried as she hugged her. Jackie returned the embrace, her heart thumping at the warmth her mother was sending her through the link. This whole time, she’d been so scared to come out and face the world after what had happened with Adam. What he had made her remember because of his surname – the same one that Larry has.
Just remembering his name makes her want to crawl back inside and hide in her bedroom; hide from her family and friends.
Jackie looked down at Kane who was watching them. He had the nerve to call her selfish. Bastard; he and his pack are the selfish ones – not her.
Jackie turned around with wide eyes to the owner of the scratchy little voice. Her heart thumped painfully in her chest as she took in her son. She’d neglected him these past few days – something that she had promised not to do. He’s grown now, her little boy. Too big to be carried, that’s for sure. She frowned at his clothing.
Why the hell is he in boxers with no shirt on? “What did he just say?”
She looked at Seth, whose chest was shaking as he stared down at Sethane. “Come again little man?”
Sethane bobbed up and down on his hip. “Bish! Bish! Bish!” Pointing at Kane as if he was trying to say something.
Seth threw his head back and laughed, breaking the tension around them. “D-did you h-hear him?” he laughed.
Jackie cracked a small smile, taking hesitant steps towards the duo. She could hear her father give the two Enforcers an order to take Kane somewhere, but she didn’t really care.
She stopped in her tracks, not turning to look at him, waiting for him to speak.
“He needs you Jackie.”
Jackie’s wolf snarled at Kane and his words. If he had needed her so much, why throw her away? Now that things have gotten tough, he suddenly wants her back? No way. No. Way.
“That’s just too bad Kane. He had his chance. I don’t need him in my life anymore,” she murmured before she walked over to Sethane and Seth with a smile on her face.
It felt so good to let it all out – to someone from her past. What will happen to him now? Jackie didn’t care. They wanted her out of their lives – she is. It’s time they were too.
“Come here baby,” she murmured as she went to grab Sethane. He grinned up at her, his dimples showing. Gah, her baby was such a little cutie just like his uncle. Speaking of uncles … “Have you been teaching Sethane swear words, Seth?”
