I know we all loved 'The Enforcer' so by all means I want this story to be a standalone and not jeopardise the content in the first book. This is an addition simply a spin off for those of us who cannot forget Hercules and Gia - so you definitely need to read the first book  before you read this one. 

Meanwhile remember to check out the other completed stories that will be soon be published: Born for Royalty and Too Fat for Love. Hope you enjoy this spin off series!

---------------------

"Where are you going this time?"

I looked up from my plate of breakfast ignoring his questioning glance at my full plate, probably wondering why I wasn't eating. It wasn't that he can't cook or anything, I just wasn't hungry and Hercules always had to make me breakfast even when I was not hungry. I placed my fork on the egg debating whether or not to stab it.

"St Bernards pack."

"Again?" Hercules asked. He pulled a dining table chair out and took a seat opposite me. "Didn't you just go there twice this month."

I shrugged, "Yeah they want me to go back." I told him. Hercules was silent and the only sound was the sound of my fork on the plate, playing with my food. "You signed up for this." I said, deciding to address the elephant in the room.

I was almost too nervous to look up and stare into those eyes, they were filled with an emotion I didn't want to see.

"I'm not complaining"

It sounded like it though.

"Can you take care of Noel again?" this time I had to look up. It was Hercules that was avoiding my gaze.

"Of course, you don't need to ask." He told me as he looked out the window. Noel was starting to become a permanent feature in this household and I liked having my nephew around, apart from the fact that I knew he also got moody every time I packed up to leave for another job.

"I'll be back in a week." I told Hercules who simply nodded. It was the same every time, he didn't stop me from going on my next job but he also didn't seem too happy about it. I thought coming home every weekend was better than just disappearing for months at a time.

The first year made it seem like it was easy, Hercules was patient and I thought we were getting somewhere but the last few months I could sense the strain of my travels on this relationship. Hercules stopped greeting me at the border like he used to, not that I cared or anything...it was just that I noticed it more. Instead Marcus would sometimes come to effectively pick me up but even that was decreasing. I almost felt like I was failing at balancing both my jobs and I had no idea how to fix it.

"What's the Alpha like?" Hercules asked me.

"What do you mean?"

"I hear the new Alpha for the Bernard's pack is you know, your age, young, inexperienced, some would say he is more fitted to be a human." there was a tone I didn't like in Hercules's voice.

"He is okay, I'm just trying to get him to remember the rules. He was abroad up until the recent Alpha Tiane died so he's in charge now. I guess he's not that ready to take over a big pack like theirs."

Hercules made a sound at the back of his throat, "Just be careful with him. I don't like him."

"You haven't met him."

"I've met those who have met him and it's probably a good thing I haven't met him. Just be careful. You know I get nervous every time you go on these trips."
