And Then There Were Four Novel Chapter 123

Chapter 123: News of the Future

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when they took me into the house, but one thing I did know was whatever they had had planned for me; I was going to enjoy it.

Damn, was I right.

When they took me down into the basement, they had absolutely blown my mind with the things they had done to me. They touched every inch of my body and every bit of my soul. I loved them more than anything, and nothing in the world would ever complete me more than they did.

Except my children, of course.

By the time the night was over, and they carried me upstairs toward my bed, I was exhausted! They had made sure after everything they had done to me, I received the proper care needed, from them cleaning me up to caressing my body to kissing me gently, showing me nothing but affection.

Every bit of it was sweet and romantic; after I gave them the pleasure they wanted, they tended to me as if I was everything to them, which I was, in a way. I wasn’t just their mate. I wasn’t just their Luna. I wasn’t just the mother of their

children.

I was the love of their life.

They had shown that to me more than once, and looking back at everything we had gone through, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the trouble we

had gone through to get to where we are.

All of the trials we faced together ended up strengthening us, strengthened our love, made us unbreakable. And at the end of the day, we never gave up. We never gave up on the hope one day our family could live as we always wanted.

In peace with everything we had built.

Laying in between my mates, their arms and legs entangled with my own, a massive pile up on my bed barely big enough to contain us all-I laid awake. I listened to the steady beating of their hearts, and the slow rhythm of their breathing.

They were just as worn out as I was.

The only problem for me, though was I was no longer sleeping. My mind wandered over everything, wondering if there was something I was missing, and when I couldn’t take it anymore, I slipped from the bed and made my way downstairs to the kitchen.

It wasn’t until I was deep in the fridge searching for a snack, absolutely famished from all the exercise I had gotten from the guys I realized I was no longer alone in the kitchen. Turning slowly, I came face to face with a familiar set of eyes I had not seen in a very long time.

“Kara, what are you doing here?”|

She stood before me as she always did, a brilliant warrior outfit decorated upon her body, her sword against her chest as her wings folded behind her back. An elegant headdress of feathers and jewels upon her head as her silver eyes stared at me with amusement as a small touch of a smile crossed her

lips.

“It’s good to see that you’re awake.” She stepped forward. “Word spread, in the realm that you had finally awakened. The others were eager to know if the rumors were true. So they sent me to check on you.”

“That was very kind to them. I’m sad that I missed out on so much of my children’s lives. It would have been nice had my father helped me along in the journey to waking up sooner.”

My comment was sarcastic and slightly unneeded, but I was

allowed to feel the way I did after everything I had been through. Kara seemed to know this as well, and, raising a brow, she shook her head. “Yes, I do apologize for that.”

“Why did he wait so long, Kara, to tell me he was my father? || know there was no way to make it through, but I had met Frigga and you in the dream realm and never once did he approach me.”

She stood there in silence, unsure of what to say, as she tried to formulate words multiple times, but her mouth opening and closing vocalized nothing. After a moment of silence between us, I looked at her curiously to know why she had absolutely nothing to say and what she said next shook me to my core.

“It isn’t easy being Odin. He has done things in his past that he regrets. But you were not one of them and trust me when I say he had wished many times to be here. That is why he’s going to give you the gift that he is. That is why he is going to train them and protect them.”

Train them and protect them? What in the hell was she on

about?

“I’m sorry, I’m not following. Train and protect who?” I asked her with a narrowed gaze, trying to understand what she was saying. Even though, deep down, I had a feeling I already knew who she was referencing.

Standing up straight, she adjusted herself, her eyes widening in surprise as her smile fell. “You mates didn’t tell you, I take

it?”

“No, they obviously didn’t. So why don’t you enlighten me on what it is you’re talking about?”

“Well,” She said with hesitation. A prophecy was read when your children were born. Within that prophecy, it deems Pollux and Castor as the saviors of our realm.”

“The saviors of your realm? You mean the realm of the gods?

That isn’t possible. They’re just babies.” I laughed, trying to shake off whatever she was trying to say.

“Ivy, this is not something we would joke about. Your children are special. Gifted even, and they have an important future ahead of them that demands they be present in our world.” | could tell that she was trying her hardest to get me to understand what she was saying, but the only thing I heard from that sentence was ‘in their world’.

“We can’t all move to your world, Kara. That is impossible. We have people here to take care of.” I replied angrily.

Yet, when my gaze met hers again, I could clearly see | misunderstood her. “Ivy, that isn’t what-”

“No, absolutely not,” I snapped, cutting her off. “Over my dead body.”

My reply was firm, and as her lips tightened into a thin line, she took a deep breath and exhaled, trying to force a smile on her face, as if she was talking to someone who didn’t quite understand. “I hate to break it to you, but the terms have already been set.”

“And I hate to break it to you, but no terms have been set with me.”

Even though I expected my comment to anger her, a smile spread across her face from ear to ear. I wasn’t sure what she found funny. There was no way i agreed to this.

Unless….

When she said the terms have been met, it meant an arrangement had already been agreed upon. More than likely while I was asleep. “No…”

“From the look in your eyes right now, Ivy, I have a feeling that thoughts are running through your mind over your mates possibly agreeing to something.

“They wouldn’t do that. They know how much my children mean to me,” I replied in disbelief

“That they do, which is why they actually had made a counteroffer to benefit you,” kara added as she pulled a small knife from her pocket as she began picking at her nails.

“What kind of counteroffer would benefit me? You’re talking about taking my children. There’s no way in hell that’s going

to fucking happen,” I shot back at her as I tried to keep my tone at a low whisper. The last thing I wanted were my mates waking up to this conversation. I wasn’t ready to see them if they had agreed to this.

“Unfortunately, Ivy, you no longer have a say in this. You were outnumbered, your mates agreed. What is going to happen is going to happen whether you want it to or not,” she said, causing my blood to boil as panig set in.

“No, that isn’t fair!”

“You’re overreacting, Ivy.” Kara sighed. “I could have taken them at six months old before you even woke up. I am on your side of this… they won’t go till they turn eighteen.”

“On my side? Are you fucking serious right now, Kara? These are my children.”

“I know they are, but they will need guidance on how to use their powers, Ivy. Guidance that you never had, and look how well that went.” She countered, giving a low blow to my self esteem.

She wasn’t wrong. I hadn’t even known what I was, and I had made a terrible mess of things. I couldn’t let that happen to

them. I couldn’t allow them to not know who or what they are.

Powers. My children had powers!

Wrapping my head around the idea was impossible. I was still an immortal when I had them, and those genes passed down to them at birth. Immortality, I gave up to save Damian, and would still do even if time was returned to that moment.

“There has to be another way.”

Shaking her head, she gave me a sad look. “I wish there was, but there isn’t. We aren’t even sure when they will start using their powers.”

It took everything in me to leave that thought out of my mind in front of Kara. I had known the answer to that statement, and that was because of Castor. It was because of her I woke up. The being inside her brought me back, and if Kara knew, it may have changed her mind.

She may have forced them to leave now.

“Please,” I whispered, with tears in my eyes. “You can’t do this, Kara. They can’t go through what I went through.”

Low, heavy footsteps on the hardwood floor behind me caught my attention, and as I turned, I saw Damian stepping forth from the shadows of the hallway, his arms crossed over his chest as he looked between Kara and I before letting out a heavy sigh.

“This wasn’t how I wanted you to find out. I was planning actually to have this conversation with you tomorrow,” he said. “I need you to understand that this is for the best. It will help them.”

“How could you?” I snapped at him, not understanding why he would ever agree to give her children away. “They are mine too, and you didn’t even speak to me about this. You didn’t even ask my opinion.”

“How were we supposed to have asked your opinion, Ivy? You were unconscious for a year. What we did, we agreed upon in

unison. We grew up not knowing how to control what we were, and it took over us until we were old enough to understand what was going on i

What Damien was saying made sense. He didn’t even need to finish that sentence for me to know exactly where he was going with it, and tears continued streaming down my face as I nodded my head.

It wasn’t Kara’s fault. She was simply doing as Odin, my so called father, told her to do.

“Okay,” I hissed. “Eighteen.”

Kara seemed pleased with my response and nodded her head. “I will leave you two for now. I will be back in a few years to check on them. If you need me, you know how to call for me.”

I didn’t know, but I wasn’t about to tell her that.

Watching her go, I turned to Damian, who looked at me, surprised. “You are actually agreeing to that?”

“Are you fucking kidding me? Absolutely not.”

“But-” he stammered with confusion.

“Damian, I know that you guys were just trying to prolong it. I’ m not angry at you… it wasn’t like you had a choice in the matter. However, if they think they are going to take my children, they are sadly mistaken,” I exclaimed as I smacked my hand upon the counter.

Stepping towards me, he wrapped me into his embrace, kissing the top of my head. “We have till their eighteenth birthday to find a way out of this. To find a way to keep them

safe. Let us just focus on that, and our family. Don’t let Kara’s words upset you.”

I was silent in the end. Thinking over everything going on, and the fact the gods thought they were entitled to my children, when in reality, they were not. I may not have been an immortal anymore, but I was still the creature I had been before.

I could feel her beneath my skin. Not as strong, but still very much alive.

If they thought they were going to ruin my family and take my children…

Well, I’d find a way to destroy them all.

The End.

Authors Note

Thank you all, my darling readers for staying with me through the first two books. I do want to let you know that I have TWO more books in this series coming out. However, they will follow the line of Pollux and Castor, as well as Ivy, Damian, Hale, Talon, and James.

We will get to meet the twins, and their run in with both light and darkness. Not to mention the other children of Ivy and her mates. Plus, the erotic nature that will take over the twins as they become adults

and enter a land that is far more dangerous than the one they already know.

Book Three and Four will be attached to this continuation.

Love Always,
