Chapter Twenty Four

Start from the beginning

"I'm getting Dr Tessler over here, maybe she has some logical answer as to what is going on here" Xavier muttered as he stood up and slightly walked away from me with his phone in his hand.

I tuned his voice out as I focused on my little mate in front of me, I didn't know what was going on right now but we were going to make it through. We just had to.

"The Doc will be here in five man, honestly you should pay that woman double" Xavier laughed, trying to get a reaction out of me that wasn't stone faced and pathetic.

I just nodded my head, letting him know that I had heard him, without taking my eyes off of Annabelle. Think Jax think. If we were mated I could know what she was feeling and at least know that she wasn't scared but we weren't and it just made the wolf inside my head even crazier. I'm seriously going to have to bring the topic up soon, just to give my heart a rest more than anything else.

I suddenly felt a hand touch my shoulder and looked up to find my mother looking down at me, a look of understanding in her eyes as she took me in.

"Mum? What are you doing here?" I asked as I stood up and took her into a quick hug.

"Xavier called and said you needed some support, your father and siblings are here too."

I looked behind her to see the rest of my family sat on the sofa on the other side of the living room. I gave them a brief nod, showing my appreciation for their support before turning back to my Mother. "I don't know what to do mum, she wont wake up and I can't feel the bond. Her wolf has gone. What... what if her wolf never comes back?" I muttered, showing my fears to the person in front of me.

"We will pray for the moon goddess to bring her back to us but if it is the case that her wolf was to traumatised after being forced not to shift and has left her than we will deal with it okay?"

I nodded as I looked back down at me sleeping mate. Please come back to me.

"I came as fast as I could" I heard a voice from behind me state and I turned around to see Dr Tessler standing behind me with her medical bag in hand. She was still dressed in her dressing gown and her hair was obviously not brushed but I didn't care, as long as she was here that was the main thing.

"Thank you Dr. She seems to have gone into a coma of sorts, when I found her she was in a fetal position on the floor in the kitchen covering her ears. When I first saw her I thought she was having a panic attack from smashing a glass but when I went to touch her I couldn't feel the mate bond between us. I still can't even now."

The Dr nodded as she took a stethoscope out of her bag and knelt down to listen to Annabelles heart rate. "And when was this?" she asked, getting a device out that would measure her blood pressure.

"I don't know, maybe half an hour ago?" I shrugged.

"An hour" Xavier piped up from the sofa and I nodded a thanks to him before looking back at the doctor.

"Okay and was her wolf missing as soon as you went to her or did it slowly fade away from her?"

"Umm... I think her wolf was already gone when I found her". I honestly couldn't remember much from the past hour, all that has been running through my head was that my Annabelle couldn't die on me, not after I had just found her.

"Okay good, at least her wolf didn't slowly fade away like she was dying, at least like this there is a chance of finding her again."

I nodded, trying to take some comfort in that bit of information but I couldn't relax until Annabelle was up and about and in my arms again. "How long will it take before she wakes up Doctor?"

She looked at me and shrugged "It's hard to say Alpha, we don't know half of the trauma that this girl has faced over the years, maybe this is just her body's way of dealing with everything it's gone through."

"We'll get her back son, don't you worry about it" my Dad said as he walked up beside me and slapped me on the shoulder.

I suddenly heard a slight whimper from the sofa and looked down to find Annabelles eyebrows pulled into a frown. Was she waking up?

"Annabelle? Annabelle can you hear me?" I knelt down to get closer to her but was pulled out of the way by my dad so that Dr Tessler could get to her.

"Let the doctor do her thing son".

It killed me but I gave a swift nod and let the doctor pass so that she could give Annabelle another quick exam. She pulled the lids back from her eyes and shined a torch in her eyes and as she did Annabelle suddenly woke up with a gasp and said one word that made all of us frown in confusion.
