Hunter was right. I hadn't necessarily proven Greg innocent, as I just made a deal with him. But then again, Greg was always innocent. There's nothing to prove. 

 "What happened to innocent until proven guilty? You have no proof that Greg did any of that." 

"The proof is right here!" Hunter said angrily, scrunching the note in his fist, then raising it. 

"Greg didn't write that. He has no reason to. Plus, I know for a fact that Greg didn't kill those people." 

"Oh really? What, were you with Greg at the time the couple was murdered?" Hunter spoke out sarcastically. 

"Maybe." 

Hunter's eyes enlarge, taking many short breaths, his hands shaking in fury.

"You- you were with Greg today?" Hunter even had his teeth clenched. 

Maybe I should have just kept my mouth shut... But I couldn't let them wrongfully blame Greg. 

"I-I bumped into him at Shoppers Drug mart when I was buying Tylenol."

Jaxon spoke before Hunter could.

"You only bumped into him, even if you stayed to talk, what is that? 30 minutes at most. He killed them after. Perhaps your interference triggered something in him."

"No, it wasn't like that. He had cuts and bruises all over his face, which was from my beloved mate," I give Hunter an irritated look before continuing. 

"I just helped him clean up. He was with me, he couldn't have done it." 

"You don't even know what time the people were mercilessly killed, how do you know he was with you at that time?"

"Because I know Greg didn't do it. Greg isn't the monster, and if you take him, you'll just see how wrong you are." 

"Where were you at 2?" 

"With Greg." I could see Hunter's hands turning white from his tight grip. He clenched harder every time I said Greg.

 "I called you at around 2:30 and you said you were at home. Was Greg with you then?" I couldn't look at Hunter.

"Well, not exactly, I mean, he was with me before that but when you called me, he was gone. But he didn't do it!"

Hunter didn't look to convinced. 

"Hunter, he didn't do it. You have to believe me. I know you guys hate Greg, but he isn't a killer." 

"You believe me, right Jaxon?" I gave him a hopeful look.

"I'm sorry, Rose, but it all adds up. He meets you, you guys start having this thing, then someone dies." He gives a short glance at Hunter before looking back at me. 

 "He leaves for a while and every things okay, he comes back and a few days later someone dies." 

"That doesn't mean he killed them!" I shout, standing up.

"It's a coincidence, okay! Or hell, maybe he's being framed, or it's all in your head. But I know for a fact that Greg did nothing wrong and I'm not going to sit here and listen to you guys single him out."

"Don't speak to me like that, you may be my mate, but I am still your Alpha."

"Screw you Hunter! You broke our deal! You said you wouldn't hurt Greg, well guess what, Roses aren't the only ones who lie! Hunters lie as well." 

"No, I said I wouldn't kill him. Not that he would be all safe. He should have known better then to walk up to me and demand for his rank back. He disrespected me." Well.. I didn't know that part of the story.
