Irony-a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result. "You're allied with both?!" I stifle my growl since I just yelled at the man who is only trying to help me. In case you are wondering this is a very ironic situation. I've spent almost 7 years of my life running away from Kermit and Alpha Thomas and in less than a week they will be at my Luna induction. Where I can guarantee all hell will break loose.

"Unfortunately, they're our neighbors. We need to be on good terms with them."

Running my fingers through my hair I breathe out and puff my cheeks along with it. "You are aware that once they see me all 'good terms' will be thrown out the window? Unless you hand me over freely."

"NO! MINE!" I roll my eyes as Josh inhales my scent. This guy.

"Obviously I would get the hell out of dodge, I'd run away before they even realized I was gone." Not something I'm proud of but a necessary skill I learned while living with my father. It only helped me avoid beatings.

Alpha Allen rubs his face and Josh seems to be back to normal except for the anger coursing through our bond. "Father, they will not take her." He gives his son a look, basically saying 'no duh'.

"You're the Alpha now Josh, though you still haven't beaten me." Josh groans and rests his head against mine. If it wasn't completely disrespectful I'd love to challenge Alpha Allen just to see where I stand.

I glance up at Josh and smile, 'You alright?'

'Yes my father loves to rub in the fact I haven't beaten him yet.'

"Why do you have to beat him in a fight to become Alpha?"

I've never really heard of this practice before. Especially because the job of an Alpha is so stressful it is usually passed along willingly. But I'm assuming that since Josh hasn't won yet, Alpha Allen still has a little pull- purely out of respect. "It's teaching discipline. Patience and provides a strong successor for the pack." Josh responds proudly.

"Not to mention humility. Years of hard work and constantly being put back into your place is something that you won't ever forget." Don't I know it? I nod at Alpha Allen to acknowledge him and start to get nervous.

Josh sighs and toys with my fingers, "Alright do not inform Alpha Thomas or Kermit of my mates identity." He spat out Kermit as if it was the most disgusting thing he'd ever tasted in his life. Can't say I blame him entirely, I feel the same way. "That will only give them time to prepare." Smart. "All of our pack is invited, obviously but double security around the home and we'll put a few more wolves on patrol around our borders. No one will see my beautiful mate until it is time for her to be inducted into the pack and as our Luna." He says the last part proudly and my wolf begins to purr in happiness.

'Mate's proud of us'

'Yes he is'

No matter how happy I am we still have to prepare for the inevitable, "Once they see me all hell will break loose." Okay, so I'm going to have to work on my eloquence apparently because they both laugh at me.

Alpha Allen sighs and glances at Josh, "Unfortunately son that is something we will have to work through when the time comes. We have no idea how they will react."

And in the back of my mind I'm thinking... I could always challenge my father then.


'Time to get up! Time to get up! Time to get up!'

'What the hell Amber?!'

'Time to train! The sun is shining and we're ready to start the day'
