Aurora watched as Georgia moved around the room. She was in a tizzy after seeing the marks on her back. She seemed so surprised by the way that the pack treated Aurora, that she wondered if the pack Georgia came from didn't have a Runt.
Most runts were killed young, as it was just too hard for them to survive in the wild. Being in a pack, a runt was just another mouth to feed and a creature more likely to get a disease. That was the last thing a pack wanted, which was why they killed the runts if nature didn't.

"Well, I should go. Thank you for your help." Rory spoke getting up, laying the blanket down on the bed. She was barely able to take a step before was stopped by Georgia.

"Wait, you can't go back down there!" Georgia hissed appalled.

"I have to, Alpha is going to expect my work to be done."

"Does the Alpha know about the abuse?" Georgia asked her brow furrowing.

"Yes."

"And he allows it to continue?"

"Some times he leads them." Rory shrugged.

"That's not right. Not right at all."

"It is what it is."

"It will be corrected soon, just wait." Georgia said quietly to herself, but Rory heard her.

"What are you taking about?" She questioned confused.

"Come here." Georgia spoke reaching to take Aurora's arm. Aurora couldn't help but flinch, her natural reaction when someone moved towards her. Having seen this Georgia apologized and retracted her hand. She gestured into the bathroom, leaving Aurora to stand in the room confused. With a nervous glance to the clock she followed, watching as Georgia turned on the shower and the sink, ushering her inside.

"What are you doing?" Aurora asked slightly amused by the wolf in front of her, turning on all the faucets.

"It's harder to be overheard if there is background noise." Georgia whispered. " I want to tell you something, but you can't tell anyone else."

"Who do I have to tell?" Aurora rolled her eyes, a sour laugh coming form her mouth.

"Aurora, I'm serious." Georgia said.

"Ok, fine."

"You know the Alpha that's coming to visit?" Georgia asked and continued when she saw her nod. "Well, that's actually my brother. He's heard about the bad things going on in this pack, I don't think he knew how bad it really was, but he's going to put a stop to it."

"And how is he going to do that?"

"He may challenge the Alpha."

"If your brother is the Alpha, why would he send you to this pack?"

"Because he needed someone on the inside, to see what was really going on and report back to him. Originally we were looking for an alliance, but hearing the rumors about the pack on this territory, we had to see what was true and what we'd be getting ourselves into."

Rory didn't know what to say. Was she supposed to feel hopeful that things were going to change? She felt a seed of doubt in the back of her mind. What if this was just the Alpha Darren trying to test her, trying to tease her? Georgia seemed to be sincere while she was helping her, but she also could have just been a really good actress.

"Please don't tell anyone." Georgia said after they sat in silence. "If Darren finds out, he will set up an ambush for my brother, and I can't let that happen."

"Sure." Rory nodded. "Now, I better get my things done. Thank you for your help." She spoke, quickly leaving Georgia.

Returning back to the dinning room, she quickly gathered towels to clean up the mess of water and moved along to the next item on her list.
