Chapter 28

The doctor gives Peter a discreet look across the room, trying not to attract the attention of Allie. But I doubt she would notice anyway, she's too busy crying into Peter's shoulder.

"It's time now, Alpha," the doctor whispers.

I nod. "Thank you. For helping her,"

He nods in acknowledgement before looking at Peter again.

Peter nods and slowly starts to lower Allie away from him and on to the bed.

But it doesn't work well, and Allie begins to scream her head off as soon as Peter is no longer touching her.

"No!" she wails. "Don't leave me!"
Tears are now freely streaming down her cheeks, harder than they've been since the whole time we've been in the hospital.

"I have to sweetheart," he murmurs to her, brushing hair from her face with his fingers. "You'll be fine,"

"No, please don't go," she whispers, a broken tortured sound.

Peter doesn't say anything, but instead bends down to lightly kiss Allie's forehead. And once he's close enough to her, she takes the chance to grab onto him with a death grip.

But Peter still manages to pry her fingers away, and walks away from her, trying to keep his face composed. I can see how much it hurts him to leave his daughter like this.

"Good luck, Kaden," he murmurs quietly where Allie won't hear him. "Take care of her,"

"I'll do everything I can," I vow. "She's my top priority,"

Peter nods and makes his way to the door. But he waits for the doctor before leaving.

"Mind-link me if anything changes, Alpha," he says.

"I will,"

They both give me a final sympathetic glance before walking out of the room, shutting and locking the door behind them.

And now its just me and Allie.

The sound of the door closing sets with Allie and she lifts her head up, searching for Peter or the doctor -I'm not sure- but only finding me.

She immediately backs as far away from me as she can, falling off the bed and scrambling into a corner. She curls into a tight ball, whimpering and crying into her arms while she rocks herself back and forth.

Every fiber of my being is telling me to go to her, to comfort her, but I know its too soon. It'll only scare her more. And that's not something I want.

Time seems to drag on, the only sound I have being Allie's cries. And in the back of my mind, I have to wonder if she'll ever stop crying and maybe get some rest.

But finally, her loud sobs slow, before they stop all together, just leaving small whimpers to escape.

She lifts her red, tear-stained face to mine and meets my eyes. They're blood shot from crying, and they look broken and terrified. Terrified of me.

"Can you just leave?" she whispers, so softly I almost miss it.

I freeze for a second, thinking that maybe she meant those words for someone else. But there's nothing else around but us too, and I know that she's talking to me.

I tell her the first thing that comes to my mind, even if it's not the best answer for her to hear. "I don't want to,"

My words make her start crying again, and she tucks her head into her arms like she was doing earlier. She continues this for a few minutes before speaking again.

"Are you going to kill me like you killed Kaden?"

Her words make me want to cry, scream, and break something all at the same time. I'm not dead!, I want to shout. I'm alive and I love you!

But I don't say that. Instead I remain calm. "I'm not going to hurt you,"

Allie sniffs. "Why did you hurt him?"

I shake my head, though she can't see it. "I didn't,"

Allie goes off again. "Yes you did. He's gone and it's because of you,"

Then she says the words that no mate ever wants to har from their other half. The words that seem to finally break me.

"I hate you,"
