And Then There Were Four Novel Chapter 24

Damian’s POV

Something was going on around my home, and I was tired of feeling like I was the last to know. My brothers were acting more than suspicious, and I had no doubt that they were trying to get to know Ivy behind my back. It angered me, but then a part of me wanted to be okay with it because my wolf called out for her.

It wanted to be with her, and I was the one preventing it.

‘You need to start being the Alpha that’s required of you!’

Hale’s voice yelled through the mind link causing me to growl at him.

‘Watch your tone.’ I warned, not sure what he was talking about.

‘Watch my tone? Zane just hit our mate on your watch. You may not want her, but you should still protect her.’

A howl of anger left my lips at his words. Ivy had been assaulted on my watch and in my home. I knew that Zane was adamant to press certain issues, but never did I think he was capable of something like that.

My wolf fought against the barrier in my mind, demanding to be set free.

I was going to make Zane pay if he really touched her.

Father or not… I had to make sure she was okay.

Ivy POV

I wasn’t sure what the howl had been, but I didn’t want Talon to be mad at me. I felt terrible about how he came to check on me, and the only thing I did was yell at him, which wasn’t necessary. Taking a moment to think over things, I put my phone on the table and slid my shoes on, making my way out the front door.

I knew going into the woods wasn’t the best of ideas, but I had to fix things with Talon. I had to apologize and explain to him that I didn’t mean what I had said. It was just words said in anger with no meaning behind them.

“Talon!” I called from the edge of the woods as I stood there trying to grasp the courage to go into the forest. James had made it clear that wasn’t the best idea, and yet I never seemed to listen to what people told me.

“Damn it, Talon,” I grumbled, before pushing forward onto the path in front of me. “If I get killed I will never forgive you.”

The darkness within the woods was far more drastic than I had imagined the first time around, and seeing everything now, I had to admit that it was beautiful in a scary way.

It didn’t take long for me to find myself in the place I once had been in when Talon’s wolf approached me before, and from behind the brush, it appeared once again. The massive size of the beast caught me off guard, but as it snarled at me– I wasn’t scared.

“I am not afraid of you, because I know you will not hurt me.”

The confidence in my words was met with a growl and a snap as if he was determined to change that view. For a second my heart lurched in fear, but something within the wolf’s eyes made me feel comfortable.

“You know it isn’t fair that you can understand me, but I can not understand you.”

Slowly, I walked toward the wolf, and watched as it stared at me with uncertainty. I was just as confused and curious myself, but I tried to act as if my heart wasn’t about to jump from within my chest.

Another snarl, and I halted in my pace. “Would you wish me to do as you command?”

Each of them was far different from the next, and I wanted more than anything to have them all, considering I didn’t feel right without them near. The wolf seemed to take into consideration what I was asking, and before I knew it, the cracking of bone sounded and the wolf turned back into a man.

“Didn’t you learn last time not to come here?” Talon’s snarl took me by surprise, but I didn’t dare back away from him. There was no need, and I needed him to see how sorry I was for going off on him.

“Talon–” I replied slowly, “I am sorry for what I said.”

Laughter filled the air following my comment, “sorry? Why are you apologizing? You made it clear what I was.”

“I didn’t mean for it to come out as it did, Talon. I’m sorry. Please let me make it up to you.”

“Make it up to me? You mean like a whore on her knees… is that what you want? To let me use you like my brothers did?!” His words stabbed deep at my heart, and tears welled within my eyes.

I didn’t understand why he was speaking to me that way. I knew that he was angry to an extent, but still, how he was acting was completely baffling.

“That’s a bit harsh don’t you think…” I replied, feeling hurt and ashamed to even be in front of him for a moment, “I was honestly coming to apologize. Not to sleep with you.”

Turning away from him, I shook my head, unsure of why I bothered to even try to explain anything to him. There was no point.

“Stop.” His words wrapped around me, and small grasps of his hand upon my arm caused me to stop in my tracks. I had forgotten what it felt like to be touched by him, and as I slowly turned back to face him, I saw a primal hunger lurking beneath his eyes.

“If you want to apologize for what has happened between us…. you will run for me.”

I didn’t understand what he meant when he said I would run for him. The confusion was clear upon my face, and as the smile crept across his face the sound of cracking bones resonated through the air.

I knew what he was asking then.

He wanted to hunt, and I was his prey.
