And Then There Were Four Novel Chapter 126

Chapter 126: Hallway Fallout


-Fifteen minutes earlier~

I didn’t understand why my sister thought she could act however she wanted. We were the future of the pack, and instead of growing up and doing what needed to be done, she continuously acted like a child. Watching her make her way towards her friend Melissa with her hot pink hair swinging behind her, I groaned.

She would be the death of me if I didn’t get her under control.

“Lux! Baby, I missed you!” Ashley’s high pitch voice met my ears the moment I opened my truck door. The girl was gorgeous for sure, and in bed she got the job done, but other than that, she honestly had nothing going for her.

“Hey, Ashley,” I replied flatly, watching the disappointment on her face surface at my greeting. It didn’t matter what she did, I couldn’t get behind the overly affectionate shit she was into. It just wasn’t me, and honestly, the last few weeks I had been second guessing why I even had her around in the first place.

Closing my truck door, her slender figure wrapped around my bicep, pulling me closer towards her. She wasn’t the only one to come flocking towards me the moment I arrived at school, but she was the only one to cling to me like a child clinging to its mother.

Something I found to be rather annoying.

“So, I was thinking about the party and I thought maybe we can go shopping after school to pick out our matching outfits. It’s going to be a very big night when the pack is introduced to their future Alpha and Luna together.”

“What?” I muttered, furrowing my gaze at her with confusion. “What are you talking about?”

Giving me a dumbfounded look, she shrugged her shoulders with a small laugh. “Uh-us, being proclaimed the Luna and Alpha of the pack. Did you hit your head this morning or something?”

“No.” I sighed, moving towards the school. “Just don’t get overexcited when there is a chance we may not be mates.”

Gripping my upper arm, she stopped me in my tracks and turned me to face her. “How could you say something like that? Mate or not, we are going to be together. We are good together and you know it.”

Disgust filled me hearing what she said. Mates were a precious thing, and I would only be with my mate in the end. Sure, Ashley and I had hooked up many times. Shit, she wasn’t the only girl I had hooked up with, but at the end of the day my Luna would only be my mate and I didn’t care what Ashley or any of the others had to say about that. “Let’s go. I don’t want to be late for class.”

With the nod of her head, we continued towards the large brick school building in front of us. Ashley and her friends talked about Cassie and my birthday party this weekend as if it was the highlight event of the year.

Which, in the past, it always had been. This year, however, felt

much different.

There was something in the air that felt wrong, and the closer and closer it got to the big day, the more on edge I was with everything. Almost as if my wolf could feel something big was going to happen.

“I’m so excited. I wonder what Cassie is wearing this year.” One of the girls giggled. “I’m sure something sexy for Lucas…”

Ashley quickly hushed the girl as they stifled their laughter, trying not to draw attention to themselves, but I had heard the words the girl spoke and my sister’s and Lucas’ name in the same sentence wasn’t something I was happy about.

“What did you just say?” I asked, spinning around to face them.

“It’s nothing, Lux. Just some silly little rumor,” Ashley stammered, pushing a smile on her face. “Come on, we can’t be late.”

“Shut up, Ashley. I want to know what she said right now.”

Ashley stepped back a bit, her eyes gazing around towards her friends as she bit her bottom lip. “Well, rumor has it that Cassie has been seeing Lucas Vega, and that they are… well, you know.”

Lucas Vega was the area’s notorious bad boy, and the only person I hated in this pack. His mother was the pack’s librarian, and the two came to us about seven years ago after his mother was widowed. I didn’t trust the punk ass kid as far as I could throw him, and everyone else typically stayed away from him.

Go figure my sister would be one of the ones who didn’t.

“How do you know this?” I snapped at them, not caring Ashley was one of the people I was taking my anger out on.

“Seth saw Cassie talking to Lucas at the Hill party and told his sister Lauren, who you know is like my best friend-”

“Damn it, Ashley, get to the point already.”

Flinching at my tone, she quickly stumbled through her response. “Seth saw Cassie and Lucas disappear into the woods together, and when Cassie came out later, she was alone and fixing her clothing.”

The stammered words spoken from Ashley set my blood on fire.

How could my sister act like this knowing what kind of people we were, and who he was?

Turning, I headed straight for Cassie’s locker. If she thought she was going to act like a slut, she was sadly mistaken. because my sister wasn’t going to whore herself out to the pack reject.

The moment I turned the corner and locked eyes on Cassie, who stood with her friend Melissa, I gritted my teeth, seething with anger. “Cassie!”

She spun around to face me, and as she did, her eyes widened. “Why do you look like someone pissed in your coffee this morning?”

“Are you fucking Lucas Vega?”

The question came out quickly as I all but yelled at her,

causing her to choke on the coffee she was sipping. “What?!”

“You heard me, Cassie. Word has it you were seen fucking him at the last party.”

The conversation was definitely meant for behind closed doors, and from the red tinge of her cheeks, I could see embarrassment growing inside her. Classmates of ours began to linger around, whispering to

each other as they stared at us, but I didn’t care.

I wanted the truth, and I wanted it now.

“Are you kidding me right now?” she whispered loudly as she stepped closer. “How dare you speak to me like that?”

“I have a right to know if my sister is whoring herself out to the pack. I’m the future Alpha, and I have to know my people even if it’s someone who lives under my roof.”

Sudden laughter escaped Cassie as she stood shaking her head at me. “Are you fucking serious right now? First of all, they aren’t your people yet. Second of all, we live in our parents’ house so I don’t know what roof you think you fucking own. Lastly, how dare you act like this towards me? I am your sister…” she hesitated for a moment as her eyes shifted towards Ashley and her friends before glaring back at me. “…you seriously choose to listen to the gossip of your dumbass girlfriend and her crowd of pink barbies…pathetic. Get your shit together, Pollux.”

The way she spoke to me in front of so many people caused collective gasps to filter through the air. Cassie had publicly embarrassed me for the last time, and if my parents weren’t

going to do anything about her, then I would make it my job

to do so.

As Cassie turned to walk away from me, I reached out and grabbed Cassie’s shoulder, spinning her around to make sure she faced me. I was going to make her realize I wasn’t someone she was going to cross, whether she was my sister or not. “You’re going to listen to me.”

Anger blew through her eyes as they slowly began to swirl with the celestial color I knew all too well. She wasn’t one to mess with, and with these stupid fucking powers, she had been nothing but a problem.

She shouldn’t have been as powerful as she was.

That was supposed to have been reserved for me.

“Pollux, you know exactly what happened the last time you tried me like this. So you can either get the fuck off of me and walk away, or you and I are going to have bigger problems than what your girlfriend said.”

“You need to watch your tone, Castor. You will respect me, as I deserve to be respected.” I hoped she would have bowed down like I had expected any other person to do, but instead, Cassie began to laugh in a maniacal way, making me hesitate.

Before the commotion could continue any further, a voice called out, stopping us in our tracks. Our father, James, had exited a classroom somewhere nearby and was seen storming through the hallway straight for us.

Both mine and Cassie’s eyes darted in the direction of where he was, and with his narrowed gaze and clenched fist, I knew

we were in trouble.

“What is going on?” he demanded as Cassie quickly turned off the angry scowl she wore and put on the biggest puppy dog pout.

“Dad, I didn’t do anything. I was just at my locker and Lux came over here storming up out of control, accusing me of being seen with this guy just because his girlfriend and her Barbie friends said that somebody had seen me with him at a party.”

Everybody around was listening to the conversation. It was clear Cassie was being overdramatic to try and make me look bad. Looking around the hallway, he frowned at the other students. “Don’t you all

have class!”

He was pissed, and as the kids who lingered around quickly disappeared. He turned his gaze to me. “The two of you in my office, now.”

Our father was a very calm and kosher man. However, when things got out of control or we misbehaved, he took it seriously. As soon as we turned down the hallway, the door to his room came into view.

“I don’t know the truth behind what happened, and honestly, I don’t care. The fact of the matter is I could feel your power, Cassie, from right down the hall to where I was, and that is not good for anybody,” he said as he closed his office door.

“I’m sorry,” she whispered, causing a smirk to cross my face.

I was glad to see Cassie getting what she deserved. Yet, when his gaze turned to me, it became even angrier. “I don’t see

what you think is so amusing, Pollux. You are the one that initiated this entire thing.”

Standing straight with my mouth open, I shook my head. “No, I didn’t. She started it by going off with Lucas at some damn party, trying to make herself look like a whore in front of the entire pack.”

“Excuse me?! Did you just call your sister a fucking whore? Have you lost your goddamn mind? Do you know what Damian, or even Talon and your mother, would say, hearing you talk about your own sister like this?”

Guilt filled me. Mom was everything to me. She was beautiful and graceful. Everything a boy could ever wish to have in a mother, she was the person I was the closest to out of all of them.

I knew my mother wouldn’t have been pleased with how I treated Cassie today. Especially invoking her powers the way that I had. “There’s no need to tell her what happened. I’m sorry.”

I quickly bowed to the situation, not wanting to escalate it any further and as I apologized, Cassie turned her frown into a smile, shrugging her shoulders as she shook her head.

“Look, we will deal with this at home, but for right now, both of you get to fucking class and don’t let me hear that any kind of situation happened again. Stay away from each other,” James replied, pinching the bridge of his nose in frustration.

“Wait, what?” Cassie said quickly. “He’s my ride home, though, and we have to stop at the pharmacy to get the medicine mom needed.”

“I’m not taking you anywhere,” I interjected, refusing to be in the same vehicle with her. “Looks like you better walk or ask your friend to take you.”

“That medication is for our little brother. Are you fucking kidding me?”

“Cassie, I will take you, sweetie. Just meet me here when you’ re done with your last class. I needed to go by the store to grab a few things for dinner anyway,” James sighed, causing her to nod her head, but then scowl at me.

“Fine.” There was no need for any other conversation to be had, and as we both exited our father’s office going our separate ways, I couldn’t help but wonder if I did fuck up in regards to this situation.

Sure, my sister pissed me off to no end, but thinking back on it now, I didn’t act like an Alpha. Instead, I acted like an asshole and the entire student body got to see me mistreating my sister over a rumor.

I wouldn’t allow her to be with someone like Lucas, but as soon as I was the Alpha, I was going to make sure she was paired with someone respectable. There was no way in hell I would allow her to continue to be the loose cannon she was.

She needed a mate, and if she couldn’t find hers soon… well, I’ d force her to mate with someone else. That way, they could keep her ass in line.
