Nikolai

"You're what," I heard Lex shout. I shake my head and walk into the room. She's sitting on the bed, looking through her Facebook. "You can't be pregnant mom!" I mouth to her, 'Speaker phone.' She sighs and presses a button then Melissa's voice floats through the room, "I'm only 35, Alex. Besides, you'll have a little brother or sister once you get back."

"Yeah and it only took you 18 years. I've wished for a sibling since I was little and now that I have all this bullshit on me you are going to bring this baby into the world. Good ahead and do that; just don't bring me into it." Lex hangs up and throws the phone across the bed. She shuts off the i-Pad and throws it next to the phone. She gets under the covers then starts crying. I sigh then climb over her so I'm facing her. I pull her close then kiss her forehead, "What's wrong sweetheart?"

"I don't know what to do anymore. I want to be the one who's pregnant. I want my own baby but that son of a bitch I call my father took that away from me." I back away then she gives me a questioning look, "Don't you want that? Don't you want a family?" I stay silent; I don't know how to answer that. She gets out of the bed and runs out of the room, sobbing. Oh shit! What did I just do? I run out but I can't find or hear her. I run downstairs and Willow asks, "What did you do to Alexandra?"

"I was being an idiot. Where did she go?"

"Outside. Better hurry; she looked pretty upset." I thank her and run out the back doors. I can hear her sobbing and follow it to a wooden bench swing. She's sobbing into her hands then a red fox trots over to her and whimpers. He rubs his head against her leg and she sniffles, "Why am I so stupid? Why would anyone want to have a family with me? Our kids are probably going to be some sort of hybrid that would be isolated by everyone and wouldn't have any friends. My kid will probably be just like me."

"That's not true, Lex." She looks up and shakes her head, "Leave me alone; you've done enough damage." She wipes her eyes, stands then spreads her wings. She looks at her right wing and flaps it, "All good. I'll be back in a couple of hours; don't worry about me." She takes off and I growl. I shift into my wolf and take off through the woods; guess I have to follow her scent.

Alexandra

I end up at the pack's graveyard and one certain tombstone catches my eye:

Kaleb and Jacelynn Famon

Their love follows them to the Afterlife

I kneel down in front and place a hand on top of it. I close my eyes then a few minutes later I hear, "Who are you?" I look up and a girl with light brown hair and brown-green eyes is looking at me. I scream and fall on my butt. She rolls her eyes, "What do you want Fallen Angel?"

"You're-you're Jacelynn."

"Thank you for noticing Captain Obvious. Why did you take me away from my husband?" I shake my head, "I didn't know what I was doing. I didn't even know I could call on spirits." She sighs and sits on top of the tombstone, "Well, I'm here. What do you need?"

"I just need someone to talk to. I don't know what to do with my life anymore." She gives me a sympathetic look then rubs the side where Kaleb is, "Kaleb and I were married for 50 years when he passed away from a heart attack then a week later, I killed myself because I couldn't handle living without him. He is the love of my life and we're together in the Afterlife."

"How is it?" She smiles, "We love it. We watch over our family and just enjoy our time together." I smile and she sighs, "Anyway, enough about me. Tell me about you and your mate." I tell her Nik and I's story; technically everything basically. "He wants what's best for you, Alexandra. Your father needs to be taken down then you can focus on having your family."

"I don't know why I acted like that though. I was just so mad because my mom is going I have a baby and I just-I don't know." She smiles, "I know how you feel. My daughter, Arabella, had a prophecy set to her name and she had to defeat the man who was connected to it then the Moon Goddess could give her the ability to conceive. I've seen her in the Afterlife along with her mate; both of them died in a battle." I look at the headstone next to her's then smile, "She's right next to you guys."

"She requested, actually." I laugh then my mate's voice fills the air, "Lex, where are you?" I look towards the woods then back at Jacelynn. "Talk to him Alex, it's time. I have to go; I can feel Kaleb looking for me. Have a nice life and good luck."

"Thank you." She smiles then disappears. I stand then shoot off into the sky. I look through the woods then see my mate running through the trees. I swoop down and land on his back, "Boo!" He screams like a girl then I fly off of him. He turns to look at me then shakes his head, "Don't do that to me, Alexandra. You scared me to death!"

"Sorry for...everything. I don't know why I reacted like I did and I shouldn't have ran off. I was acting like a selfish chi-" He cuts me off when he presses his lips against mine. He pulls away and whispers, "Its okay baby, I forgive you." I smile then he swings me around so I'm on his back again. "Nik, what are you doing?"

"I think you and I deserve a date night. We can watch movies, eat junk food and cuddle. No distractions just us; we're in our own personal bubble tonight."

"I'd like that. We haven't really gone on a date yet, have we?" He shakes his head, "Nope we haven't. Can this be our first official date?" I nod and kiss his cheek, "I love you Nikolai."

"I love you more Alexandra." I chuckle, "How much do you love me?"

"I love you with my entire heart, body, mind and soul." I smile then rest my head against his shoulder. I don't know what I would do without him; he's my anchor.
