Alpha’s Betted Bride Chapter 55

CHAPTER 55.
Flashback…
“Hey,
can I come in?” Nick was standing by the door to my office. I had just visited Cole in the dungeon, my mind was a f*cking mess and I could not handle any more at this moment.
I placed the picture of Cole on the table and nodded my head.
“What’s up?” I asked. Nick sat down on the chair in front of the desk. He raised his head and looked around at the surface of the table. His eyes landed on the picture I had just placed down.
He picked it up and scanned it.
“I spoke to him.” He said and looked up at me.
I clenched my jaw and leaned forward.
“Why?”
“I heard he was one of the people who hurt Gabby.”
He
was.”
“We got into some interesting…history, I knew what he was getting at but I didn’t appreciate him fishing for answers.
“Why don’t you just cut to the chase, I have a lot on my mind right now.” He nodded his head and placed the frame down.
“I have a plan, one that you cannot tell anyone about. Including my brothers and sister.” I was getting intrigued and at the same time, a feeling of dread filled the room. I didn’t want to keep secrets from Gabby, I didn’t want to lie to her or in any other way hurt her again,
I had promised, both her and myself, that I would keep everything honest.
“Sorry, I can’t promise you that.” He sighed and bit down on his lip His eyes rose and I could see the intentions in them. Whatever plan he had was going to be a whim.
“Please, it’s for their safety.” He said and lowered his head.
Shit
What do we do?
“We promised her no more lies”
I know but something is up
And we have to find out what it is. Aiden, we also promised to protect her, we have been beating ourselves up trying to figure out a way to do so. Maybe this is the way”
I looked at Nick and bowed my head,
“I promise.”
“Cole told me much about your past. How you edged him into this life of hypocrisy and douchery. You were the devil on his shoulder,

shouting louder than his common sense. He told me about the person he used to be before you affected him.” I clenched my jaw tighter and was hoping he’d get to the point before my patience ran over.
even
“He seems like a good man, deep down. I know what he did, to both Gabby and Cassy so I’m proposing a way for him to showcase his other sides and simultaneously make up for the bad he has done.”
“And how exactly do you plan on doing that? How is he going to make up for raping a girl?” Nick raised a brow and leaned his elbows
on his knees.
“How come you didn’t give two shits about the allegations until Gabby came along? That girl, Casandra, she walked on these grounds, seeing the face of her tormentor every day. Why didn’t you do anything sooner?” This a question I had asked myself for a long time. Since the morning that Cassy came out of the bedroom with Cole. I knew the truth, why hadn’t I acted ogit?
*1 was messed up, played by my brother, and more protective over my friends than the innocence of a girl,”
“Who used to be your friend, no?” My eyes started glowing and I growled.
“That, right th
there, is why I cannot trust you with my sister.” I was taken aback by his comment.
I leaned back in th
in the chair and blinked several times.
“You’re unreliable, you cannot own up to your mistakes and you blame your pain on everyone else. The second someone pushes up against you, saying something you don’t like, you fall back on that default setting that was put in you so long ago.”
I shook my head and scoffed. Defensive, I knew th
that.
Where the f*ck were my words? Why was I quietly sitting and letting him lead the conversation?
“Because now you’re talking to an actual Alpha”
I looked up at Nick. My blood was boiling but it wasn’t at him, my anger was directed at myself.
“Tell me what you want.” I said and tried pushing back the anger.
When it is time
“I want you to release Cole, not yet but soon. Something will happen, it has been quiet for too long. You will know and then I’m gonna need you to send a guard and let him out of the cellar. He will be ready and on my command, I will instruct him
further.”
“What is it he will do?”
“I don’t know yet but he will do it, that I can promise you,”
End of Flashback…
His face was bruised and dirt covered it in patches. His eye was swollen. His clothes had been changed and he was wearing a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. Dried blood on his arms and his neck.
Cole looked around the room and Gabby gasped. I looked at Nick, the plan had been set in place the second we heard about their parent’s arrival. In the car on the way back to town, Nick told me what Cole would be doing to clear his name, or at the very least he would clean it a bit.
Warriors, meet Cole Askon, your new Alpha.” Everyone was looking around in shock but I met my father’s gaze and he calmed.
The warriors kneeled.
“Before he takes his place as Alpha of the pack, he has a mission. Have you been informed?” He asked Cole who bowed his head.

CHAPTER 55.
“What…what is happening?” Gabby asked. She turned her head and looked at me. A pang of guilt hit me in the chest.
“Aiden…Aiden did you… did you know? Please tell me you didn’t,” she said and shook her head.
“I did.” I said. She stepped away from me and bumped into one of the warriors. Her eyes cast around the room frantically and my mother walked toward her. Gabby bumped into the table, she stumbled over her father’s leg, and fell down on the floor next to them. Cole had raped her best friend, something Gabby knew too much about herself. And now he was free.
“Oh my god…” she breathed and started hyperventilating.
o, you didn’t, please tell me you didn’t,” she said to me and shook her head.
“No, no,
My eyes softened. Everything softened as I saw her scared and fragde body pushing up against the wall.
“No,” she cried.
“Gabby, I’m sorry but I promise you it is for the best,” she scoffed and wiped the tears.
She was about to step forward but a body came in the way and she was pulled into a hug. My mother wrapped her arms around Gabby and held on tightly.
“Be upset, cry, let your feelings out, and don’t you dare bottle them up and wipe those tears yet. You are not made of stone, my love, you are not meant to take this much pain, not alone at least. Let me take some of it for you,” She whispered and stroked Gabby’s hair.
Gabby’s eyes started watering and then she dug her face into my mother’s neck and sobbed. Her fingers tangled in my mother’s blouse and she held on for her life.
As the crying had eased and Gabby pulled back, my mother wiped her tears and then turned around, using herself as a shield in front of Gabby.
“Continue.” She said and looked between me and Nick with a death glare.
“Nick and I have talked and decided to give Cole a chance to be spared.”
“What?” Gabby
Gabby breathed and narrowed her eyes.
“Before he takes the title of Alpha and leads your pack, he will first go, with five chosen warriors, and bring Cassy back from Asher’s pack.” I said and lifted my head.
Suddenly everyone dropped a breath and leaned back.
We all knew the danger of this, one could argue it was a suicide mission but Cole was a good fighter and obviously sneaky. But more than that, he was hellbent on proving himself and getting back on my good side, which I didn’t know was possible or not,
“Cole, you have agreed to this?” My father asked in a monotone voice.
“I have, sir.”
“Why?” My mother asked.
Because I am aware of the choices I have made and there is nobody else to blame but myself. It doesn’t matter what lies in my past, I could still have controlled my future and I decided to do what I did. Now I will face the consequences and whether or not this gets me killed or I am not given the title, I don’t care. I have to make this right. Both for you Aiden, but also for Cassy.” He said and hung his head.
Mr.Maler nodded his head approvingly.
