“Fight it all you want, Willow…I am entirely yours…”
As his seductive words lingered in the air, a gentle spark coursed through my veins. His possessive grip around my waist drew me closer to his chest, the soft glint from his earring caught my eye, triggering memories of the past. It reminded me of the time. when he had taught me how to drive and we had ended up in the same position due to his playful teasing. The recollection of our midnight escapes from the pack, secret rendezvous, sultry whispers, and the thrilling love we shared in the past tickled my heart with a mere glimpse.
“Ahmm….” The sound of someone clearing his throat interrupted us. Slowly tearing my eyes away from Reuben, we both turned to see Oran at the window, sporting a sly smile. Reuben rolled his eyes at Oran, but my attention was caught by the fact that Oran wasn’t alone. Bix and Ella were behind him, observing the scene. Ella’s expression was full of discomfort while Bix had a displeased look in his eyes. That was when it dawned. on me that I was still in Reuben’s lap.
I struggled to get up, but Reuben’s grip on my waist tightened. “Let me go!” I demanded, my voice strained. It was already an embarrassing situation, and the redness in my face didn’t escape his sharp gaze.
“I thought you were going to fight me,” he smirked, tracing small circles on my lower back with his finger. His sudden bold touch sent shivers down my spine. Glaring at him, I pushed his chest hard, summoning all my strength to break free from his grip and swiftly moved to the driver’s seat.
Reuben chuckled at the sight of my flushed ears then redirected his attention to the people outside the window. “What’s up?” he rolled down the window.
“The treaty our pack has been longing for has been secured by Ella,” Oran beamed with excitement, sharing the news with Reuben. Reuben’s expression shifted at the revelation. I couldn’t help but notice his intense gaze immediately landing on the papers in Ella’s hands. Ella stepped forward and approached the window, aiming to speak with Reuben. Ella did manage to spare me a fleeting glance. I simply ignored her and looked straight ahead, though neither of our reactions to each other escaped Reuben’s notice.
“I’ve secured the treaty, but they’ve presented additional demands that I find difficult to accept. We should review them together before making a decision,” Ella explained,

clutching some papers that I instantly recognized. The Emerald Bright Pack had a long- standing dispute with that pack, apparently Ella had the ability to resolve it. Her posture exuded nothing but seriousness, embdying the ideal traits of someone fit to lead a pack. Ella possessed all the qualities of a perfect Luna, I envisioned both her pack and Reuben’s working in tandem, jointly making decisions. There were rumors circulating that after their wedding, both Reuben and Ella’s packs would merge. Ella was bringing a lot to the table for Reuben, much like what a pack’s Luna was expected to. An uncomfortable feeling surged within me for some reason. Reuben began conversing with her, “Good job. For now, you…” “We’re running late for our shopping trip. So please step out of my car and handle your business outside then we can be on our way,” I cut in, starting the engine and signaling for him to get out. He was a workaholic, prioritizing the pack above all else and never neglecting even the smallest task. As I spoke, he shot me a knowing glance from the corner of his eye, signaling that he was aware I wanted to kick him out and leave him behind. But to my surprise, instead of getting out of the car, he simply rolled up the window and brazenly remained seated. “I’ll take care of this matter after we’re done shopping,” he turned to face Ella then added, “I’m occupied at the moment. You can come to my office later, and we’ll discuss it.” Ella gave a slight nod as Reuben quickly fastened his seatbelt, urging me, “Let’s go. A bitter twitch tugged at the corner of my lps at his obsession with tagging along.
“Mommy, let’s go!!” Wyatt and Lori chimed in from the back seat with excitement, eager to get moving. I put the car in gear and pulled out onto the main road, using a map to navigate the unfamiliar roads due to recent city developments. However, the man seated beside me seemed to be lazily keeping his eyes fixed on me the entire time. Our gazes accidentally met a few times, yet I deliberately ignored him, treating him as if he were invisible. It was a strange and entirely new experience for me, having him in. the passenger seat. So, I drove a little faster to the mall and hurriedly got out of the car, eager to escape the awkwardness.
Getting out, I opened the car door for the children, but Reuben did the same at the same time. Wyatt and Lori looked at the two of us in confusion, unsure of which side to choose. Reuben locked eyes with me for a couple of seconds, then closed the door, saying to the children, “Always go to mummy’s side.”
His words surprised me. Although the children couldn’t fully comprehend it, there was a deeper meaning to his statement. Wyatt and Lori slowly exited the car from the door I had opened, and Wyatt looked up at Reuben, “But daddy, if we go to mummy’s side,

“Never,” Reuben smiled, coming around the car to stand beside me, “Because you always find me next to her.”

My heart ski pped a beat at his statement. Our shoulders brushed slightly, causing me to clench my dress at my side. I didn’t dare to look up into his intense green gaze, so I turned and started to walk inside the mall with the children, Reuben closed the door
with a chuckle.
After walking for a couple of seconds, I noticed too many eyes turning in our direction, especially women gasping at a certain someone’s handsomeness. I stopped and looked. back to find Reuben walking behind me, his handsome face and indifferent attitude obviously attracting too much attention.
“What do you think you are doing?” I paused at the entrance, glancing at Reuben.
“Walking?” he raised an eyebrow.
“Don’t walk with me or the children,” I warned, looking around at some of the people who had cameras in their hands.
“Why?” he frowned.
“If someone snaps a photo of you with Wyatt and Lori, it will be in the world news. I don’t want my children’s normal life being destroyed,” I remarked and took Wyatt and Lori with me, leaving him behind.
“Mommy, daddy…” Lori kept looking over her shoulder.
“Don’t worry about him. He’s an adult. He won’t get lost,” I stated dry,

might be trying to garner the children’s attention. The problem was that allowing him to walk with us would risk Wyatt and Lori’s future. He was more eye-catching than any. movie star in the entire country and had already been in the news due to shouting my name at the airport.
As I grabbed a trolley and entered the mall, the weekend crowd made it chaotic. “Wyatt, Lori,” I quickly scanned the area for the kids, intending to keep them close before they wandered off, but to my surprise, they were already gone.
“Wyatt, Lori!” I panicked. Leaving the trolley behind, I spun around to search for them, only to find them in the arms of a tall man wearing glasses and a cap. My eyes widened when I realized it was Reuben. He had shed his expensive coat and was now dressed in just a black shirt, untucked from his pants, he now looked like any other regular guy

shopping at the mall. He had completely transformed his appearance.

“Now it shouldn’t be a problem, right?” he asked, taking a step closer to me. I blinked at his willingness to change for me.
“Daddy, you are the best!” Wyatt and Lori happily wrapped their arms around his neck in a hug. He smiled at them and looked at me for approval. I averted my eyes and turned to grab my trolley to continue shopping. “Don’t cause trouble or fall behind.” I murmured, ignoring his chuckle. I began selecting dairy products and meat that I had planned for dinner. Then, I headed to the stationery section to buy items for Wyatt and Lori. Throughout my shopping, Reuben followed behind me like a shadow, observing my every move. This continued even when we entered the ladies’ lingerie shop. I picked up a black lingerie set in size 32A, appreciating its fabric and design. As I checked the price, I felt a pair of green eyes on me. Turning around, I discovered. Reuben standing in the ladies’ section, his gaze lingering on my chest. I shot him at disapproving look, then he grabbed a similar lingerie set from the next section, placing it in my hand before walking away with the children. As I examined the lingerie set Reuben had given me, I realized it was a 32B. My cheeks flushed red instantly. Six years ago, I had more weight on my bones than I did now, 32B was my actual size. Had he figured out my size just by looking? That thought embarrassed me further, especially since it seemed he had been eyeing my breasts! I selected a few more lingerie sets and went to try them on in the changing room. After completing the purchase and stepping out, I couldn’t spot Reuben anywhere. On top of that the mall was too crowded to pick up his scent among the crowd. Frowning, I wondered, “Where did he run off to with my children?” I entered the snacks section in search of them until my eyes landed on Lori’s favorite snacks. She had a particular fondness for that flavor, and it seemed there was only one packet left on the shelf. As I reached for it, someone else’s hand suddenly appeared, trying to grab it from the other side. I paused and glanced at the middle-aged man next to me. “Excuse me but I picked it up first, I calmly informed him. “So what? You haven’t paid for it yet. It’s not yours,” he retorted rudely, attempting to sna tch the packet from my hand.

His attempt to take it from me, fueled by his ego, couldn’t overpower my grip. “What if I don’t let it go?!” He aggressively confronted me. I remained composed, firmly standing my ground. “Don’t complicate things. You’ll regret it,” I calmly warned. It wasn’t about the snacks anymore. I would have relented if not for his rudeness that triggered both my wolf and I. “Ha…this bi tch,” he sneered, stepping closer, his breath reeking of smoke, “You dare to threaten me? Do you know who I am?” he yelled, making a scene, but abruptly halted when his eyes drifted past me and settled on something. His disdainful expression shifted from shock to horror. A terrible feeling crept up within me. I turned around to find Reuben standing behind me, glaring at him with intense, dark green wolf eyes. “Did I hear you calling her a b itch?” Reuben released a low growl, his grip on his glasses tightening until they shattered into pieces. Panic surged through me at the thought of Reuben attacking the man at any moment. He must have overheard the derogatory term directed at me. Unintentionally, memories from my school days when I had been bullied by a senior flashed in my mind’s eye. Reuben had intervened, severely beating the bully causing a major scandal since the senior was human and an Alpha had attacked him. His father, Alpha Luis, had paid a hefty sum to hush up the matter, but now I feared that Reuben wouldn’t stop until he sucked out the man’s soul as payment. A crowd had gathered, drawn by the low growl resonating in the store’s aisles. “You can keep it,” I tossed the packet into the man’s face and immediately grabbed Reuben’s hand. “Let’s go,” I pulled him away from the crowd before his eyes attracted unwanted attention. People watched us curiously until we were well away from the snacks store. Tightly gripping Reuben’s hand, I kept moving until we reached a quieter area, away from prying eyes. “Didn’t I tell you not to cause trouble?” I admonished him, stopping in front of a less crowded store. He responded in a cool tone, looking all innocent, “When did I cause trouble?” My frustration flared, did he think I couldn’t see through his act? “You….” I began to scold him before the voices of Wyatt and Lori interrupted me. “Mommy,” their voices drew my attention toward the ice cream parlor. Blinking, I glanced back in the opposite direction to the snacks store. From where I stood, I could. be easily seen from that ice cream parlor. Looking back at Reuben, I realized he had been watching me the whole time, even though I hadn’t sensed it. The Secret to Making Mors Money with Lana Effort: Laser Cutting 13:08 Thu, 29 Feb B. Chapter 27 G 76% Ignoring his gaze, I stepped into the ice cream parlor to purchase treats for Wyatt and Lori. They happily started enjoying their ice creams. Just as the server behind the counter handed me my treat, Reuben asked, “Where’s mine?” Glancing up at him, I replied, “Buy it yourself,” then turned to head toward the table. where Wyatt and Lori were seated. “I don’t have any money,” he followed, his expression pleading. I paused, surprised. “Why don’t you have money?” I inquired. “I forgot my wallet,” he admitted with a pitiful look. I couldn’t help but smile, responding, “Well, no wallet means no ice cream for you,” as I continued walking towards Wyatt and Lori. He narrowed his accusing eyes at me. Ignoring him, I brought my ice cream up to my mouth to eat. Just as my lps touched it, I noticed Reuben also lowering his mouth to steal a bite of my ice cream from the other side. Our eyes locked, and my heart started beating faster. His green eyes flirted with mine making my hands shake, my hold on the ice cream loosened, causing it to drop from my hand.
Reuben grabbed the ice cream in midair and wrapped his arm around my waist, pulling me into his chest. “What are you so scared of?”
My breasts bumped into his chest as he leaned down to brush our lps against each other. My eyes widened, I couldn’t put up my drty hand on his chest with a gasp. “What are you doing?!”
I pulled away in shock, looking at him with wide eyes. Did he… did he just? He brushed his thumb over my lower l*p and leaned down to lick it, “Eating my own personal ice cream.”

Willow “It can’t be my baby!” Reuben tossed the pregnancy report onto the bed where I sat, my eyes wide with shock. “What do you mean?” I stammered, my voice hardly escaping my throat. My heart sank as I watched him deny his own flesh and blood. “I returned from the pack after two months, and now you’re telling me you’re pregnant? Does that even make sense?” Reuben’s growl was filled with frustration. My mind went blank as I stared at my soulmate. I had anticipated his return with excitement, expecting him to embrace me and share in the joy of our first child. I had imagined he would be overjoyed to know that he was going to be a father. However, I never expected Reuben to react with such rage to the news of my pregnancy, indirectly accusing me of infidelity and rejecting his own child. “It’s our baby, Reuben,” my voice shook, “Have you forgotten that you showed up in my room two months ago when you were in a rut? We made love the whole night without protection.” I tried my best to remind him of that night, desperately seeking Reuben’s soft, love-filled eyes, but all I got in return was sternness and growing bitterness. “So you’re using my rut as an excuse?” he growled. “I was in rut, but you were in your senses, right? If I hadn’t used a condom, you could have used the morning-after pill or birth control to prevent this from happening. Or at the very least, you could have told me about our mistake that night.”
