If only you knew...

Start from the beginning

"A gut feeling?" He repeated.

I nodded. "It's an overwhelming feeling I just can't shake off." 

He raised an eyebrow at this. "Well, I don't think we should ignore it."

"Really?" I asked, sitting up. "After all, it was Julian, your second in command, who told us."

He nodded, looking off into the distance thoughtfully. "The question is, who told him? When he mind-linked me, he mentioned Kaitlyn and Magnus informing him."

"Oh."

"Most likely by email, so authenticity isn't guaranteed." He added, facing back towards me. "Hacking is a possibility, even more so likely with The Rogue Force after you."

A thought had just come to me, making me reach for my phone hastily. "If something was to have happened to Jay, Kaitlyn and Magnus would've informed me straight away!"

I had totally forgot to check my phone for messages, adrenaline was still pumping from the rogue confrontation. What the kind of hell is that Darkness guy?

I clicked onto my messages, and scrolled to find any new messages from my adoptive parents. 

No messages. 

I looked up from my phone to find Theo's gaze move from my phone to my eyes. He laughed shakily, anger piercing his handsome features. It was obvious what was going through our minds. 

"It's a set up." We said in unison. 

"Fuck." I exclaimed, running my hand through my hair. To think that if I hadn't stopped to listen to my instinct, I would've walked straight into their plan. 

A familiar ringtone blared from my phone, making me jump. I laughed at my jumpiness and glanced at my phone to read the caller ID. 

It was Jay.

I widened my eyes, and looked up at Theo in bewilderment. His jaw was hanging, looking stunned before he gestured for me to pick up.

I clicked on the green button and held my phone to my ear. "Hello?"

"Hey!"

His familiar voice immediately dissolved any kind of worries that I had felt, even Theo's shoulders slumped in relief. 

"How are you?" I asked.

"I'm doing fine, listen I need to talk you about something." He said hurriedly. 

"Shoot."

"Are you alone?" 

I glanced at my mate before said, "No, I'm with Theo." 

"That's fine, so no one else?" He asked, trying to get a confirmation. 

"Nope, just Theo and I."

He sighed, and took a deep breath. I started to get anxious, wondering what was making him this nervous? 

"Put me on loud speaker." 

I raised my eyebrows in surprise, but followed his instructions nonetheless. 

"Hello." Theo greeted him first. 

"Hi."

"So what's up?" I asked, wanting to hear what he has to say.

"A while ago, I was uncomfortable and curious with the close relationship the both of you have so I got Kobi to spy on you." He blurted out so quickly that I thought I misheard. 

"You did what?" Theo roared, about to snatch the phone from my hand. I pulled it away just in time, I didn't want to replace this phone just yet.
