Jake could barely control his anger as he waited for the two idiots to explain themselves.

"We were just taking the blind girl to her cell..." Elvis said uneasily.

"Is this her cell?" Jake yelled angrily.

"No." James' voice was quiet.

"Get out of my sight...Now!"

"But...what about the...the girl?"

"I'll take her there myself." Jake said struggling to stop his wolf from making him beat the two guys to bloody pulps.

They must have taken in his shaking body, change of eye color and obvious struggle for control with his wolf an indication of his angry wolf because they left the corridor in a hurry.

"Bastards." Jake hissed.

He helped Ciara to her feet, led her down to the basement and to the nicest cell room he could find that had a private toilet with a less bug-ridden bed in it.

Then he sat on the bed beside Ciara holding her hands and wondering how to officially reject her.

"You're the boy who came to my room the other day?" She asked.

"Yes, I'm Jake."

"What do you want from me? Why did they move me from my room?"

"The Luna ordered them to."

"Who is the luna?"

"She is the official mate of the Alpha of our pack."

"Oh...does that means she's married to Alpha Donnovan?"

"You know my d...Alpha Donnovan?"

"Yes, he visits me when he can and we do fun stuff together...It’s the only time I'm allowed outside my room."

Jake was shocked, he couldn't believe that his father would have the time and patience to do 'fun stuff' with a blind girl but Ciara was telling the truth because he, like most alphas and alphas-to-be, had the ability to smell a lie.

"Ciara, do you know about true mates?" Jake asked tenderly brushing a stray lock of hair out of her eyes.

"Yes, Vanessa said they are a person's other half...that two people are made from one lump of clay and without the other person's heart, they're just halves. Did I get it right?"

"Yes." Jake said thinking of how to tell her his reasons for not wanting to mate with her.

"Why aren't you saying anything?" Ciara asked after a few minutes of silence.

"I just...Do you want to hear a story?"

"Not really, I just want to go back to my room."

"I really need to tell you this story to explain something to you."

Ciara finally nodded her head somewhat reluctantly.

"Um...Once upon a time, there was a pack called the Brandit Pack. They weren't too populated but they were powerful enough to be left alone just like our pack. One day, the alpha-to-be of their pack found out that a human was his true mate and so he mated with her. The other packs saw the human as a weak-link to the pack and some months after their mating, a large group of rogues funded by a few other packs who wanted the pack's land and resources attacked the pack. The Brandit pack stood no chance and they were defeated and that was how the pack dissolved. What do you think would have happened if the alpha-to-be hadn't mated with the human girl?"

"The other packs wouldn't have attacked?"

"Exactly."

"But Alpha Donnovan told me this exact story once but he never said it was because of the human mate that they attacked the pack, he said it was because the brother of the alpha wanted the pack for himself so he convinced the other packs that the human mate of his brother was a weak-link and helped them infiltrate the pack."
