> -----------------------PRINCESS AND THE LITTLE ONES-----------------------<
Alpha Bear wants me to do... what?
I am walking through the eerie garden to Alpha Bear’s house, something I do very often if I should be honest. I’ve always been one of his favourite members in the pack. It’s quite funny that his name is Bear when he is a wolf, but don’t tease him about it, he’s very proud of his name.
I knock on the door and step into his office. Alpha bear is smiling happily at my entrance and the age suits him well. He is one hundred and twenty-four years old; werewolves usually live up to they are one hundred and forty years old. I don’t have much to compete with my mere seventeen years in life.
“You called for me, master,” I say respectfully and he waves for me to sit down next to his desk. No, not the black leather chair used for visitors, he means the comfortable sofa by the wall and I quickly take a seat on it.
“Princess,” he says cheerfully. “I am glad your mother gave you permission to come.”
I flinch at the use of my first name. Who in their right mind would want to be named Princess? My parents couldn’t decide what to name me when I was born and my mother ordered my father to choose. He just picked the first thing that came into his mind and that, ladies and gentlemen, was Princess.
“She wouldn’t go against Alpha orders.” I tell him.
“Wouldn’t she?” he muses with a raised eye brow and I look down at the clean wooden floor.
“It’s just convenient for her that I will be close enough to pick up The Little Ones on my way home,” I mutter.
“Yes, yes, tell me how are Mary, Kate and Tom doing? I never met so inspiring children before.”
Only Alpha Bear would call the wild five year old triplets inspiring. Not even my tough mother can take them and I am the only one who can handle them. Well, not by choice of course, I rather use my time for what teenagers usually want to do instead of being attacked by them.
“They are as lovely as always,” I answer him joyfully without a hint of sarcasm.
“How are your parents Starley and Mitchell?”
“Mother and father are both doing well,” I smile to him. My parents are still so madly in love that I forget they are my parents sometimes. It’s quite cute to watch them when they have their moments.
“How are you doing, my precious Princess?”
I dare to meet his eyes again; I am not scared of talking about myself. “I am doing wonderful, Alpha Bear. I am graduating in two weeks and there is not much I can do to change my grades at this moment. I am confident that I will be satisfied with the results.”
He claps his hands and his eyes are sparkling. “Are you not worried that Starley is grading most of your grades?”
“No, mother is very strict towards me because she knows I can do better. You didn‘t send me to come here to talk about my grades now, did you?”
He never loses his smile and he walks up to the window and looks out over his garden. “Princess, our pack, the Ninjan pack is the best educated pack in the whole world. We are the most legendary and admired pack despite our small numbers. We provide the best warriors, detectives, spies and bodyguards in the whole world.”
“Yes, Alpha Bear,” I say respectfully. “That is what I’ve been trained to do since I was born.”
“Especially when your mother is the head master teacher and your father is one of the best detectives in the whole world,” Alpha Bear finishes for me with a small kind laugh. I honestly don’t know why he is so cheerful, but he always was like that. Nothing can surprise him or destroy his good mood. That is one of the reasons everyone is looking up to him.
“Not to brag,” I smile back.
“That is why the Wolf Spirits gave you the triplets, to keep you all down to earth. Not that it is needed for you and your father’s case. Simply your mother needs something she can’t control.”
