Logan's POV:

The sight of a naked Mika bathed in moonlight tempted me to go back to bed and make love to him all over again. His baby bump was growing already, looking like a three-month-old belly instead of a two-month-old one. When I asked Mika about it he said that, earlier when Logan was checking him, he said that it was normal; that by the third month he'll have a 4 1/2 month belly, by the fourth month he'll have a 6th month one and by the sixth month he'll have a 9th month belly. I was just really trying not to panic by then.

"Alpha, we're ready." Vladymir mind-linked me as he and the rest of the guard got ready.

"I'm on my way. Be ready to shift in 10. Tell Loui to come to my room immediately." I ordered.

"Yes sir." The communication was cut and I went and sat beside Mika, brushing his hair softly.

How I wish I didn't had to go... That I could stay here watching Mika sleep, laugh, cry, grow with my child...

"Alpha." Loui said from the door, breaking my thoughts.

I stood up and went to him. "I'm trusting you with the life of the most important person in the world. Should I not return, he will be in charge until my child comes of age. You'll be by his side until I return. Here..." I gave him a sealed note. "Give this to him in case I do not come back."

"A-Alpha..." Loui's eyes had gone wide. He didn't know what to say...heck, no one was expecting my failure and neither was I...but you always have to be prepared just in case.

"It's okay. Just take extremely good care of him."

"I will protect him with my life." Loui bowed to me in respect and, after I kissed Mika's forehead, I left.

Mika's POV:

The absence of heat let me know that I was alone in bed, again. Sighting, I turned around, wondering where my errant husband may be. It wasn't unusual for him to leave at the wee hours of the night, but since I became pregnant, he never left the bed at night. So for him to not be here at...twelve fifty-five am...means something happened. So instead of worrying, since is bad for the baby, I decided to shift and sleep in my wolf form. This way I feel more close to Lucien...and not too cold either.

A soft tap on the door made me shift back.

"Who is it?"

"It's me." Logan softly said as he entered the room.

"What's wrong?" It was really rare for my brother-in-law to be up at this hour.

"I can't sleep. Vlad left with my stupid brother and..."

"It's okay, you can sleep with me if you want to. But I'm sleeping in my wolf-form." I said and with that we both shifted and spooned together to sleep.

Logan's POV:

The night was eerily quiet as we neared the plaza where the fighting was arrange to be. Our guys were in place, as we wait for midnight. Vladymir and Raizo were at my sides as a precaution, as well as a warning to Han that if he lose, his pack will go to Raizo.

Soon the sound of running paws on the dirt alert us of the arrival of Han and his guard.

"And here I thought he wouldn't be stupid enough to come." Vlad curse at my side and I chuckle a little.
