"What the fuck are you doing here?!" I screamed as I held the towel tighter around my chest.

This can't be happening. My wolf was enraged.

"I thought one of those rascals had come into this room!" Enzo yelled defending himself, his back faced to me. He walked out of the bathroom and into the bedroom.

"You don't know how to knock?!" I yelled.

"I did princess! And I called out if anyone was in here and you didn't say a word!" He yelled back at me turning to face me.

I didn't even hear him while I was in the tub.

My eyebrows creased in anger as his eyes gazed over me then up to the ceiling awkwardly.

"Why are you even here! Don't you have those witch lessons?" He barked and I laughed loudly.

"Aren't you suppose to be down at the shed!?" I shot back and crossed my arms over the towel.

"I was but Marcus has everything handled. It's really non of your business anyway!"

"Why would the kids be in this room?!"

"Because they have been in here before! Running around and fucking up shit. And you know how mad Cyrus will be if he finds out that those rogues were in here again." Enzo replied walking away to the door. "And I -" he paused.

"I apologise for invading your privacy, but don't make a big deal because I've seen thousands of naked women."

I gagged and rolled my eyes in disgust.

"And for your own sake, don't tell Cyrus." He chuckled.

I stormed up to him.

"My sake? Do you have any idea what he'll do to you when I tell him." I threatened and he froze in his place. He shook his head and scratched the back of his head. I had hurt his ego and his confidence was completely gone.

"Look, all I'm saying is that we don't want him getting the wrong idea." He said back towards me. "And stop talking to me, I am trying to leave this awkward situation." He spat and walked out of the room.

I groaned loudly and shut the door behind him forcibly. I closed my eyes in frustration and let out a huge sigh.

I can't believe that just happened.

Do I tell Cyrus? Was it a big deal?

Shaking my thoughts away I walked into the closet and quickly put on a simple cotton black maxi dress with thin shoulder traps at the top.

I paired it with white sneakers and tied my damp hair in a ponytail. I walked out of the door and made my way down the hallway.

I casually walked past the paint room and stopped in my tracks. I really wanted to see the painting Cyrus had drawn of me on the couch.

After a couple of moments of consideration, I pushed the large doors open and the smell of paint invaded my nose. I walked over to the red couch and ran my fingertips on the edges, making my way to the black cupboard. I pulled the handles open and a canvas from the top level fell down at my feet.

Groaning I picked it up and held it out in front of me. It was a small A4 canvas of the BloodMoon forests. It held stunning images of the sun ever so gently kissing the trees. When I placed it back in its row quickly searched for my painting.

It wasn't here.

Frowning, I walked over to the rack of painting supplies and checked underneath.

Did he really hide it from me?

"Do I need to put a tracking device on you?"

I heard his voice and I jumped, dropping the paintbrushes on the floor.

"I just wanted to see the painting" I replied honestly and he chuckled.

"It's not in here Nevaeh."

"Okay, so where is it?" I asked annoyed.

"It's at the house. How was your lesson?" He asked me, walking over to me and taking my palm in his.

"Terrifying" I blurted out, "but I think I'm making progress"

"Good, because I need you stronger than ever." He sighed and formed his hands into a fist.

"Why is that? What's going on?" I asked, my wolf instincts sending danger.

"We can't find Jarod." He said irritated. "All those fucking rogue children were kept here safe, how did one get away?! They're only like 5 feet tall for fuck's sake!" He growled louder and sat down hard on the red couch.

I walked over to him and stood in front of him. His arms quickly found my waist and pulled me between his legs, his head rested on my torso.

"Relax Alpha," I whispered, smiling. "He is probably just hiding, they all must be scared, Cyrus." I defended.

"We needed Jarod. He was our only way to get the prisoner to talk." He groaned and sighed.

"Cyrus you know how I feel about that, you can't use someone's family as leverage," I replied, placing my hand on his chin, and lifting it up to look up at me.

"We need answers, Nevaeh." He said shortly, his eyes meeting mine. "Anyways, I've got something to tell you." He smiled, his demeanour changing completely.

"And what's that?" I asked.

"I know things have been pretty chaotic lately, but I don't want that to stop our progress..." He trailed off. I remained silent.

"And so, I scheduled a meeting with Alpha Lochlan and he has agreed to grant us permission to enter his Pack."

"Why would we go there?" I asked curiously.

"Because I figured..I've kept you here for too long. I'm sure you miss your family..." He replied sheepishly, his eyes darting to the ground.

I couldn't help but smile at his shyness. He was finally allowing me to go visit my Pack. I was beyond shocked!

"You're so cute," I teased, lifting his head and he shook me away.

"There's a lot of things people call me, and cute is not one of them." He growled in irritation.

"Well, I think you're being cute." I smiled, moving to sit beside him on the couch. before I could sit down, he wrapped his arms around my waist and roughly pulled me onto his lap. I gasped as he held me in his arms.

"Call me cute one more time." He warned and I shrugged.

"You. are cu-"

Before I could finish, he smashed his warm lips onto mine. I responded quickly, wrapping my arms around his neck, our lips moving in sync. He bit my lip gently, causing me to gasp and his warm tongue entered my mouth. His arms crept under my shirt and lightly traced my skin. I felt on fire, my wolf felt on fire. My arms reached up and tangled into his thick hair. In an instant, his hands found my breasts and he slightly squeezed them. I moaned, in the contact of body heat against my own, before I drew back into his lips.

He then pushed me away softly and separated us.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"Enzo is trying to mindlink me." He groaned and I groaned too. I was sick of Enzo ruining everything.

"What does he want?" My wolf growled. He sat up straight and I crawled off his lap.

"They found Jarod."
