"There you are! Now we can begin. I wanted to have breakfast with the whole family. I feel like we don't get to see eachother enough, and so to remedy that, we are going to have family breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. They all don't all have to be on the same day, but we have to have one of each a week. No arguments. You never know when the last time you'll see someone is." Zoro's voice quivers slightly on the last sentence, but the only one seemed to be Riley, who is always hyper aware of his mate anyways.

"Its okay, baby. We'll do whatever you ask." Riley cooed into his mates eat as he rubbed his back gently. No one seem to take the encounter into mind, but it was engraved mine, I was about to 'Kill' this man, and he was busy telling people that we could have family meals and such. How could I have ever even planned something like this? How could I plan to ruin this family?

I drop my silverware back into my plate, making a loud clattering sound, drawing everyone's attention to me. My lip shivers slightly and years fill my eyes.

"Hey, Mason, are you alright? What's wrong?" Charles cooed in my ear while rubbing my back, much like Riley just did to Do to.

"Everything wrong! Why can't people just mind their own business and let us live our lives the way we wany to live them!?" I ask as I bury my head in my hands, the tears finally leaking out of my eyes.

"Mason, I don't know what you're talking about? We can live our lives however we want." Charles counters as he stares at me in shock, no doubt wondering where my outburst came from.

"You're wrong, there is always someone hiding in the shadows wanting to take our happiness away, and I almost let them." I cry as I slouch further into my chair.

"What are you talking about, Mason? You're freaking me out." Charles finally says as he leans back from me. I take my hands away from my face. And look at the table around me, many of the younger kid's are crying too, everyone else who understands wgat I am saying are staring at me with fearful expression, all of them besides Zoro.

He stares at me with wide, panic filled eyes, asking me 'What are you doing? You're ruining the plan'. I shake my head at him, and his own face fills with fear.

"I couldn't do it." I whisper blankly as my eyes stay connect with Zoro's. "I'm not strong enough to tear you away from your family." I mumble as I stare at everyone else at the table.

"What are you talking about Mason? You aren't making ang sense, and you're scare all the pups." Riley finally says, my gaze breaking away from Zoro's and locking on his.

"I'm sorry. I really am. I just couldn't do it. I probably just made things worse." My eyes filter to the windows. Ready to see people entering the yard, ready to come and kill all of us, because I wasn't strong enough to hurt the people we both cared about, because I'm not strong enough to kill a man who doesn't deserve it, even if it would save all of us.

"What, Mason? What are you sorry for?" Rian finally yells as he tries to council his pups.

"I'm sorry for killing all of you." A single tear falls out of my eyes in the silence, but then my heart stops, silence, there is only silence. Shouldn't there be more noise if we were all about to be killed?
