The Wolf With the Silver Tongue
"Do you really want this?" He asks, lips brushing my cheek as I look out upon the pack before me. "To run these people without someone by your side?"
My throat runs dry and my heart pounds in my chest. Can I do this alone? Can I lead this pack on my own without any experience?
"Trust me, sweetheart, you need someone to show you the ropes of this game, to work along with you rather than critique."
He's right. He's damn right and he knows it, that smirk pulling upon his lips as he rests his chin on my shoulder. "What do you say? Do you say yes to creating a pack stronger than ever seen...or to run it blindly as your mom and dad don't have a clue what to do?"
"Yes," I whisper for my response, feeling his lips press against my temple as goosebumps rise upon my skin.
I said yes to a male who I only knew called himself my friend. How could I forget that the devil himself was a sly-talker. A man of deceit.
The story of Amory and Flynn continues, but this time, it is their daughter who takes up a new quest, to serve as the Alpha of her parent's pack. With no experience and fear of failure pressuring her to make hasty decisions, it's easy to manipulate someone so lost. Easy to manipulate even if they are your happily ever after.
