Goddess’s Design: His Fated Mate Chapter 40

Chapter 40

Reuben

I knew that I was an obsessive bastard, paranoid, and sometimes psychopathic. Well, most of the time if I was being completely honest. Especially whenever the matter was related to Willow, then my dark side crept out from the depths. That was the real me that I never tried to hide, I was never ashamed of my personality. However, I wanted to believe that this time my dark side was not kicking in and making me believe lies. Neither was I over–thinking nor was I misunderstanding that… Willow was… avoiding mel

I scratched the wall next to the window where I stood watching Willow driving away from the clearing with Wyatt and Lori. For the past three days, she had been dropping children off at kindergarten on her own. When she returned she would immediately go for a morning run, vanishing into the woods until children’s return. After feeding them lunch she would go to Mia’s place with her laptop for hours and only return when it was time for dinner, only to lock herself in her room before I could return from work. I could hardly catch a glimpse of her these days, not once did our eyes lock even if we accidentally bump into each other due to the children. She would just spare a glance in my direction!

I had been watching the same cycle for the past three days. First, I tried to reason with myself that I was being paranoid over nothing. After today I could finally conclude that she had been avoiding me!

I could clearly tell that it all started that night when she suddenly pulled away from me. She looked like she had been provoked by my touch for some reason. I couldn’t help but glance down at my hand. I was sure my greedy hands had not made any bold move to her that night. So why had she looked frightened? I had touched her countless times. so why was she behaving like this?

‘Could it be that she did not want to be touched by us?‘ Dex growled lowly in my head. “That’s why she is maintaining her distance by avoiding us.”

The corner of my l*ps twitched bitterly. I had yet to forget her claim to be leaving in three months. That girl… she seemed to be really working hard on her plan to escape from me. If she only knew that it did not matter whether it was three months or thirty years, she was never leaving.

“How long are you going to hold that cigarette? Are you planning to give up smoking?” Bix’s voice came from behind me. He was seated on one of the chairs in my office, sipping wine as he went through the photos that had just come in.

“Willow said not to smoke until my injuries finished healing.” I tossed the packet of cigarettes in one of the drawers, ignoring Oran and Bix’s surprised gazes. They were well aware of my addiction to cigarettes. After Willow left me, cigarettes had become the surest way that I could use to calm my mind.

“You know, she lied right?” Oran asked curiously.

I nodded, “I know, but I will follow it as long as it is what she wants.”

I knew she had been lying back then. No werewolf doctor would stop a wolf from smoking as it would not affect us in the slightest. She simply wanted me to stop smoking.

She must be too shy to ask us directly!‘ Dex chirped in

my

mind.

I looked at both of their faces and asked Bix, brushing their expression off, “Is there any news about Shine Moon Pack’s territory? Did you send the samples and other things to the laboratory?”

“I did but it will take some time for the results to come out. They have to go through a lot of tests and comparisons before they give us the results. However…” Bix’s expression grew seriously, “There is indeed something wrong just like you suspect, Reuben. There were no dead bodies found just like the previous attacks and everything was burned to ash. The strange thing is that even though Shine Moon Pack and Wade Moon Pack share a border, not one attacker entered Wade Moon’s territory. Not even by mistake. They were all wiped out silently under the cover of darkness. What’s more important, I noticed that not even a spark from that fire touched the Wade Moon Pack’s soil,” he pointed out.

“Hmmm….indeed that is very strange,” Oran murmured, “first we had been thinking that the attacker was only targeting top ranking powerful packs but by wiping out the Shine Moon Pack which was among the second tier of powerful packs, the attacker’s motive is hard to figure out now. I wonder why only werewolf packs are being targeted.”

“The reason seems simple. There is some fucked up brain behind it. Just like these fuck up photos,” Bix spoke up dryly, going through the photo of the Blue Heavens Pack from the Alpha meeting. The riverbank was covered with the dead bodies and torn limbs of rogues. Everything was painted in red including the river water where countless wolves‘ bodies lay, “it was indeed a great plan to wipe out all the top ranking Alphas. Thankfully no Alpha died in the attack, however if the news of this attack got out then it is going to set off mass hysteria in an already messed up situation.”

“Unfortunately some big mouth assholes could not keep their mouths shut and now even the small packs have the knowledge of this incident,” Oran sighed. “More terror

has been incited in our world. Now the other Alphas are spamming our emails in a panic, requesting Reuben to deal with the rogues, seeing they are also a part of the werewolf community, and can be dealt with by using only Reuben’s command.”

“F***! I agree with those requests. It turns out that those disgusting rogues are behind. these mysterious attacks! They are really asking for their own death, right?” Bix tossed away the photographs down on the desk in irritation. “Let’s wipe them out completely and put the end of these fucked mysterious attacks.”

Oran nodded as they both glanced at me, “What do you say, Reuben?”

I tapped my finger on the desk and glanced at the photos, “Even if we wipe out the rogues, these mysterious attacks will continue,” I murmured.

“What is that supposed to mean?” Oran frowned.

“If you look carefully, the three previous attacks on the top ranking packs are unknown. and ended in fire where no living or dead were found. However, in the attack at the Alpha mecting the attacker was known, no Alpha died, the dead bodies were found, and most importantly the fire was missing,” I explained.

Oran and Bix both took a second look at the photos with wide eyes.

“True, the attacks on three top ranking packs seem the work of professionals and the attack on Alpha meeting seems unplanned,” Oran realized.

“Unplanned?! Do you see the dangerous injuries on your bodies! Especially yours Reuben,” Bix looked at my still bandaged left arm with a bitter frown. Most of my chest. injuries had healed but my left arm was still in the process of mending. “It seems like they wanted to eat you or something. I even heard that the rogues were only attacking you. I wonder why?”

My finger stopped tapping on the desk as my eyes landed on my left hand that had been bitten by rogues like it was a delicious piece of meat that everyone wanted to take a bite of. Then my eyes landed on the silky beautiful white handkerchief that was no longer white but red with my blood. It was still wrapped on my wrist.

I did not know why the rogues were after me or why they wanted to kill me. I had just killed every piece of shit in the Blue Heaven’s Pack that had come my way. I had released all my pent up anger on them then sat on the mountain of dead bodies once I was done. Though one rogue had managed to escape with their life.

I clenched my fist, staring at the handkerchief. The rogue escaped but not empty. handed. They escaped with the half torn part of the handkerchief…

Unknown to me, far off on an unknown piece of land, the escaped rogue walked in the middle of a forest with the torn handkerchief in their mouth. Their paws came to a halt with a dark figure standing in their way. Once the wolf’s gaze locked with the dark. figure’s the wolf’s head severed in two, dropping dead in a pool of its own blood.

A reflection of a fair smooth hand with long fingers plucking the torn piece of cloth from the ground, appeared in the wolf’s dead eyes as the tainted cloth came into the possession of the darkness.

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.”
