And Then There Were Four Novel Chapter 110

Damian.

It didn’t take long for them to decide they were going to move forward with the plan, and before I knew it, I was dragged from the room, cuffed and blindfolded, and thrown into a vehicle. I knew deep down the destination they had planned. It was going to be my pack; it was going to be my family.

Everything I had worked so hard to protect was going to fall.

Call me a pessimist if you will, but what was I supposed to think?

I wasn’t there to protect my family.

I was an alpha, not able to protect his pack. What kind of alpha did that make me? Weak… pathetic.

I couldn’t allow myself to go ahead with this frame of mind. I was better than this, better than them, and I spent my entire life trying to show I could be more than just damaged.

Plans started formulating in my mind.

I had to find a way to divert the attention.

If I could cause a distraction, perhaps I could find a way to escape. Find a way to make it back to my pack before it was too late.

From what I could tell, the Council had sent scouts ahead to assess the situation from the whispers and murmurs of the guards surrounding me. They were going to try for a surprise attack.

They were going to take down my pack little by little, with no warning.

There were defenseless women and children in my pack. I didn’t make my women fight unless they wanted to. They had that freedom, so those who could not protect themselves, even though they had gained strength when Ivy completed the connection with the pack, would still be defenseless.

A sense of hopelessness washed over me, and before I knew it, the chitter chatter around began once again.

“I still can’t believe that we’re actually going to go in there and do this.” A man with a gruff voice to my left proclaimed. “If she’s anything like they said she is, she’ll kill us before we get there.”

I couldn’t help but chuckle internally. He had a point. If Ivy could escape, pregnant or not, she would kill them all.

She was fearless when she wanted to be, and looking at her, you would never think such a thing because she was such a delicate woman, so petite, so thin and beautiful. She didn’t seem like she’d be the type of person to hurt a fly, yet she was the most deadly out of all of us.

“Man, stop being such a little bitch. That stupid whore won’t stand a chance if I get my hands on her.”

A low growl echoed from me, and I moved to jolt forward and hit the man at my right, who said what he did. However, I was restricted and unable to move, and because of it, I found myself even angrier.

I couldn’t even defend her honor. No matter how much I tried.

“Oh, look, the Alphas decided to try to be brave. What, you don’t want me messing with your little whore? Maybe I’ll try her out myself before I kill her.”

“Fucking touch her, and I will rip you apart and then kill everyone you love dearly,” I threatened in a low and menacing tone as I gritted my teeth together, wanting nothing more than to tear this man apart at my side.

No one would touch my mate, no matter the circumstances.

If they laid one fucking finger on that pretty little head of hers, I would kill them all. I had worked too hard to ensure her happiness, to ensure she had a life with my brothers, a life that she deserved, and for the Council to unhinge that…

Well, it made me more lethal than I ever had been before.

“I’d like to see you try,” the guard sneered.

“Yeah, you keep talking, big boy, but if I weren’t tied down right now, you wouldn’t have a mouth to talk from.”

Laughter consumed the surrounding air, and as much as I wanted to rip them apart, I couldn’t. I was drained, weakened by the silver in my veins and the silver on my wrists. There was nothing I could honestly do, and that upset me because I wanted to get revenge for my mate.

I wanted to be the strength she needed.

“You talk a lot of shit about a man who’s unable to do anything,” the man to my left said with amusement in his voice.

If only I could see them. I had their scent, but I wanted to see what they looked like. Remember their faces so I could watch the fear drain from their eyes when I hunted them down.

“Yeah, and you guys talk a lot of shit for two men who have me downed with silver and afraid of a tiny, petite woman as if she could end your life at any moment.”

My retort earned me a blow to the back of my head. I could tell the man to the left of me was not pleased with what I had said because I was pointed out a fact. They were terrified of her, of what was to come, because they knew we were not normal.

They ripped the blindfold from my head, and as it was, my eyes had to focus in order to see what was around me.

The two men, both burly and grim, stared back at me. The one to my left was fat and balding, while the man to my right had a large jagged scar down the left side of his face. Both of them tried to be intimidating and sinister, but it wasn’t working.

“There’s no point in having him blindfolded. He can’t communicate with them anyway; plus, it’ll be a lot more fun having him watch us prepare to destroy his pack.”

The sadistic comment from the man to my right, the burly one with the scar, and he stared at me with hatred. I wasn’t afraid of him, though. Only one thing could scare me, and it wasn’t anywhere near me—right now.

If I got free, he would be the first one I ripped apart simply for thinking he could fuck my mate as if she would actually allow it.

“You really must compensate for that tiny dick you have. Sitting there talking and thinking about raping a woman,” I spat. “Not to mention you have a death grip on the knife like you think you will actually use it on me. He’d kill you for that.”

His eyes widened as his jaw clenched, his knuckles turning white against the blade’s hilt. Before he could even say a word, though, the other man quickly hit me again, and eventually, black spots invaded my vision, causing me to slip into darkness.

“Fucking let him watch. It’ll be more fun seeing the terrified expression in his eyes when he realizes he’s going to die.” One of the men said, his voice getting shallower and shallower until they tossed me into absolutely nothing.


I wasn’t sure how long I was out, but as I slowly came to, I realized one thing.

We had stopped moving, and I was not alone in the van.

Fear crept through me, wondering if we had made it to my back yet. If we were here, and my people were dying.

However, approaching footsteps caused my mind to calm a little as the door opened, showing Alokaye and Allison standing before me. His eyes trained on me with a smirk.

“Good, you’re awake. It’s time to prepare for the final event.”

“What are you doing? This is absolutely ridiculous. There are innocent people behind those borders,” I snapped at him, rage showing on my face as the effects of the silver slowly dissipated in my veins.

However, not enough for me to be able to fight back properly.

“That is their problem. They chose their side,” Allison sneered as she placed her hands on her hips. “Plus, they’re not the goal that we want. It’s that stupid little bitch you call a mate I want.”

Chuckling to myself, I shook my head. “You have no idea what you’re messing with regarding her. She will kill you all.”

I was warning them, hoping they would heed that warning and turn back and realize how foolish they have been, but that was not the case. Instead, they were going to continue pressing forward and learn how unforgiving my brothers could be.

“She can try. She is nothing compared to me.”

Alokaye turned to her with a narrowed gaze and shook his head. “You’re foolish to underestimate her, Allison. She will kill you.”

He knew it to be true, and thinking about her now, a pit of guilt formed in my stomach.

All I wanted was one more kiss, one more night with her, one more chance to tell Ivy how sorry I was and how much I loved her. Instead, I was dragged from the van, put on my feet, and forced to walk. I knew what was coming as if the fates had sent out a calling song to take me home.

Walking and walking, my feet crunched against the dirt and gravel on the ground. The men of the Council were both dressed and, in their wolf forms, and slowly maneuvered through the woods towards my border.

I knew by now my brothers would have had the guards on full alert, and I would have prayed they heeded my warnings and taken serious precautions.

Goddess knows, though, I had given them plenty of guidance on what we would do in case of an attack, and Talon being the man that he was… knew what to do.

Talon wasn’t like the rest of us. He was murderous, and his Lycan had a taste for blood far surpassing anything I had ever seen. He would fight to protect what was his until his last dying breath.

“We’re closing in on the border,” one warrior said softly as he approached Alokaye and Allison, who stood with smiles on their faces.

Casting his gaze up towards the sky, Alokaye smiled brightly. “It’s almost time.”

“What is?” I snapped with worry.

He turned to me with a wicked grin and laughed. “We cannot proceed properly until she is present.” Turning from me, he smiled at the warrior. “Let them know that we’re here. Let them know that I have arrived.”

Shock filled me, realizing just how serious this was and exactly what would happen. They were going to be awoken in the middle of the night; unprepared, unaware, and Ivy, my children, they all were going to suffer because of this because I allowed the Council to get me.

This was all my fault.

“No!” I cried out, trying to break free. Trying to get word to them to be prepared.

There was not much fight left in me, and now with every piece to the puzzle fitting together, I could have a little more clarity. I was the bait to get to Ivy. I was the sacrifice they were going to make.

I wasn’t sure why I was being sacrificed… but nothing was done under this moon unless ritual. Something big was brewing, and with me being incapable of doing anything, my people and my pack’s fate were literally in the hands of my brothers and my mate.

Goddess, protect them.
