"Do you have to go, A?" Danny questions.
"Sadly, I must. But quite honestly, I don't want to. But I said that I would do something so I am going to follow through with it. No matter how much I dislike it. Besides, it's not like I can just leave Lance there." I reply.
"Fine." Danny grumbles.
I can't help but laugh a little at him.
"I'll be back before you know it. You know to call me every night with a daily report. Call me if anything out of the ordinary happens." I state, all business again.
"Of course, Alpha." Danny states with a nod.
"Alright, Danny, take care. See you soon." I say as I give him a hug.
"Safe travels, Alpha. See you soon." Danny comments as he pulls back.
"Ready to go back to Louisiana?" I ask Alex as I start up the truck.
"I don't have much of a choice." Alex replies.
"That wasn't the question." I snap.
"Yes. I am ready to go back to Louisiana. I miss home dearly." Alex says with a sigh.
"Aubrey!" Lance yells running over to me.
"Lance!" I yell back, running towards him.
Seconds later his arms are around my waist and picking me up, hugging me as he spins me around.
"You honestly have no idea how much I've missed you and how worried I've been. You didn't call me or contact me once. I was about to go to Dark Moon myself if I didn't hear from you by the end of the month." Lance whispers once he puts me down.
"I know. I am sorry, Lance. But once we got there, it was on. There was so much that needed to be taken care of right then and there. I didn't have any time to call you or to keep you updated on what was happening." I whisper back, still in his embrace.
"What happened, Aub? Who attacked Dark Moon?"
"Not out here. Let's go inside. We have a lot of catching up to do."
"Alex, I am relieved that you're back. I couldn't get through to you or Alpha A. Lance couldn't get through her either. He attempted to contact Danny to no avail. He didn't know who to contact within Dark Moon. I am just glad you both are back and safe." John states as we walk into Alexander's office.
"I am glad to be back, John." Alexander states as his plops down in his chair.
Lance sits down next to John and looks at me expectantly.
"Dolsen." I state.
Lance freezes in his chair as his eyes lock with mine.
"Dolsen took Rouge's families, held them over their heads to get them to do whatever he wanted them too. In this case, attack us. He sent them to behead you, Danny, and I. To bring our heads back to him so that he had proof. Naturally Dolsen would take the kill for his own, leaving him as the Alpha. He didn't succeed. He failed miserably." I continue.
"He did say that he would come back. And he did. I am glad that you aren't hurt. Danny is okay?" Lance says, coming back to reality.
"He's fine. Perfect health. He's doing a fantastic job running the pack by himself. Everyone is doing good within the pack." I reply.
"That's good. But now, more importantly, what about Dolsen?" Lance says, saying his name as though it were venom.
"He's chained in silver in the lowest level. Death would be way to easy for him. I want to make him pay for what he did to my pack. I want to make him pay for having Rouges die in his quest for power. Make him pay for kidnapping families also for his quest for power." I hiss.
