Chloe's pov

I couldn't believe my brother was still alive, I was finally with him after so many years! I'm not even sure how long we were talking before problems started arising. My mate, his mate, this pack...

I had no idea that me leaving could cause so many problems, I was just trying to do the right thing! I was scared, since I couldn't control this thing, I could hurt them, but hearing Cole saying all of these things about mates... I see how my plan might backfire.

"I've only known him for a couple of days though, it can't be that bad...", I said trying to convince myself Brian wouldn't lose control over Daniel.

"Actually, it might be worse..."


"Rebecca and I were together for two years before I had to go, that's why she was ok at first. It took longer for her to lose control, because the bond was stronger. It's not like you never talked to him, you got to know him and left while the bond was still formulating, it's not that strong to keep him from growing weaker. It will happen fast, you need to get back to him."

"Is there any way to get out of here?"

"We can find a way for you, who knows what they have in mind now that we're both here. I don't want you to get hurt."

"For me? I'm not going to leave on my own, we're both getting out of here."

"I have to help Rebecca too."

"Ok, then we're all leaving together. I lost you once, I'm not losing you again."

"I know Chloe, I don't want to let you go either, but what about your mate?"

Brian... I don't want him to lose control, I don't want to let Daniel take control because he'll be too weak to say otherwise. I left, so that I wouldn't hurt him, I had no idea what I was capable of and when I had a taste of it a little while back, it kind of scared me. So right now, I have to try and fix all of our problems.

"How long do you think it'll take before he's not strong enough and his wolf takes over?"

"I don't know, since you've known him for a couple of days... Maybe a week?"

"Ok", I breathed out, "then we have a week to get your mate and get out of here unnoticed."

"How are we going to do that?"

"Well, you can teach me how to control whatever this is and I can also do what I do best."

"And that is?"

I looked at him with sad eyes. I didn't want to admit it, but it was the truth. "Run away."

Brian's pov

She can't have just disappear!, I shouted at Daniel as I was running through the woods for who knows what time, looking for Chloe.

She was only gone for an hour or so and I'd been trying to follow her scent to find out where she was, how far could she have gone? It wasn't safe for her out here, not if other packs knew about her existence! If she got out of our territory, she could have just bumped into anyone!

Did you find anything?, I asked the twins through the mind link.

No, Alex and Jeremy answered. The more we were, the faster we could cover up more ground.

I couldn't even understand why she left. She seemed to be fine, she was actually enjoying this, until she said that she was going to ruin my life and I didn't deserve that. She said that when she tried to get a life people around her got hurt. I guess in her own way she was trying to protect me? From herself? The only thing that comes to mind is that this has to do with these powers she has, only she has no idea how to control them. Maybe she lost control, I don't know, but she shouldn't be scared about me. I realize she could be powerful, but I'm her mate, she's not going to hurt me, I know that.

She seemed scared, that she'd do something wrong... I have to find her before anyone else does. I have to reassure her that it's going to be ok.

I was pretty sure I was running around in circles, when I picked up another scent. That was definitely a werewolf.

No... Did they find her? What were they going to do to her?

Someone took her, I said, there's another scent!

How were we going to find her? It could be any pack, anywhere, how could we narrow it down?

Outside our territory?, I heard James.

Yes!, We're well organized, they couldn't have gotten into our territory and kidnapped her, but she apparently was in a hurry to leave. She didn't have to leave...

If anyone harms her, I'm going to kill them. We have to find her before that.


I didn't sleep through the night. I was really tired, but I just couldn't, not while she was out there alone.

James was contacting neighboring packs, people we trusted, see if they might have seen something, or know something. He didn't have any good news so far and I don't think he would.

Next logical solution would be to contract Silver Blood, despite them trying to kill me yesterday. Ok, I get they weren't trying to kill me, but still. However, their Alpha and beta were not there! They had an issue with another pack and they had left this morning to try and work some things out, meaning we were back to square one.

Dan was impatient, he wanted me to do something about our mate and so did I, but I honestly didn't know what. I couldn't just go around packs trying to find Chloe and no one seemed to have any helpful information. That's actually how the whole day passed. We were trying to find something out, only to end up with nothing.

Even though I wanted to stay up, look again, try to find something I might have missed, I was exhausted and the minute I sat down to get some rest, I fell asleep.

I woke up the next day and repeated everything I did the day before. It was the only thing I could do. But it wasn't helping me get Chloe back.

"Did you get any sleep last night? You seem exhausted", James said.

"I did. And I looked again and again. Nothing changes", I said without displaying any emotion on my voice.

"We're going to find her", he said.

"Are we? There are so many different packs that could have taken her! Silver Blood said they'll come looking for her, I just didn't think it'd be that easy to find her!"

"As soon as they're back, we'll talk to them, but for now we're going to have to... wait", he said hesitantly. He was afraid of my reaction.

I wanted to protest, to tell him to do something more, but we were already doing everything we could, as was Scarlett Moon, we didn't need to ask Chris and Savannah for their help, they'd already started looking. There was nothing more to do.

"I know", I said.

I felt like the world was falling apart around me. It'd only been two days, yet I felt weaker without her, unlike Dan who was still strong and was getting angry.

I have to get hold of myself before he lashes out and tries to take control. I can't afford any stupid moves right now.
