Scarred Alphas by Norisha May Chapter 76

Chapter 76

“Are you…okay?”

“I…hmh…no!” I throw up everything that I have eaten in the last couple of hours.”

“I told you! You should not have come to see the b*dy.” Colt says.

Ad Here

“You were right. I shouldn’t

have.”

Before leaving the room, I

glance back one more time.

Two bodies lie next to each

other. Men I have seen

around the house doing

Ad Here

rounds and now they are

dead.

Who is killing them, and why?

“Come on. You shouldn’t

have to see this.” Colt rubs

my back and leads us out.

Back in the war room, we are

all gathered here now.

“We know it for a fact. Ezra is

meeting with other packs

and looking to make

alliances. And to top it off,

we have confirmation that

Oliver is with him.”

Archie–the beta—says.

“We suspected that but how

do you know all of this for

sure?”

He nods. “We have people inside helping us. Feeding us information.”

“Mh…and what can we make

about these killings? Are these…random killings?”

“We don’t know yet. But we

do know that it was done

with the same weapon.”

“Same weapon? So it must be the same person then.”

“Yes, we believe so.”

“Is it Ezra?” I ask.

“We don’t know.”

“If so, that means that he

would have infiltrated the

pack and by him, I mean one

of his men.”

“Which is not farfetched

since assassins have been

running amock around our pack already.”

“True, but I am not sure it is

Ezra. Why would he want to kill these men? They were guards, and I am not trying to belittle them, I am just saying that killing these men

seems senseless.” Colt says.

Victor–who had been just listening–nods. “Agree.”

“Then what the hell is going

on?” I ask.

“We have a murderer among

us.”

Great, as if we don’t have

enough complications

already.

“So what do we do?”

“Place more guards around

the house. These murders

seem to be concentrated on

the main house.” Archie says.

“I’ll continue investigating.”

“Yes. Keep doing that. In the meantime, everyone be careful.” I say.

They all nod.

“Now, how is Rodrick doing with Oliver’s pack?”

“He already sent a report.

The pack is secured and

under control.”

“Good. And the river packs?”

“All good as well but we might want to have one of

our generals there.” Vitor

says.

I ponder this for a moment.

“I don’t think that would be

such a good idea.” Garret says. “I get that you want to have someone strong at the forefront. The river packs are the only thing between this pack and Ezra’s. So if they are attacked, they’d be

the first ones to fall and the

general stationed there with

it.”

Exactly what I was thinking.

“Send…Crow.” I say.

“Crow!” They all ask with

shock and confusion. “He is a

rogue!”

“A rogue that has been

working for us.” I remind

them.

“Because he fears your

father.” Beck says.

“I am not so sure about that.

He told you of where I was,

did he not?”

They all look at each other.

“Look, before here, I had

never heard of rogues

working for a pack and they

did not seem to be under the

influence of my father’s

power. Why is that?”

“Warrick…knew he didn’t

have to.” Archie says.

“And why is that?”

“Well…his words were that a

well–fed dog will not bite the

hand that feeds him.”

I nod. “So, we keep the agreement with them but

also reward them for what

they have done.”

“Reward them? If we are

attacked, they’d be the first to fall. Hardly a reward.”

“They don’t know that.” I tell them. “The river packs will

either fall or not. It is one or

the other. So do you really

want to sacrifice our own

good men knowing this?”

“Can you sacrifice even

them?” Colt asks.

I look down. He knows me

so well. I did come up with

this idea but the more I

think about it, the harder it is

to do.

“I can’t. So…we explain it to

them. We tell them the truth.

Rogues–despite their bad

reputation–can be

fearless…or idiots but will

render the same results.”

“And if they refuse?” Garret

asks.

“Then we’ll think of

something else.”

“Very well. I’ll send notice to

them now.” Victor says,

leaving the room.

“Let’s meet up again when

we have heard from them.”

Everyone is dismissed.

“How is your stomach feeling?” Colt asks.

“My stomach?!” I panic.

“Yeah…you threw

up earlier.”

“Oh…much better.‘

“Cass, there you are. Come.” Kanda appears from out of nowhere and grabs my hand.

“What are you doing?”

“I want to speak to you.” She looks at Colt. “Only girls. No boys allowed.”

Colt’s eyebrow shoots up.

“Is it boy talk?” I ask,

laughing.

“Uhm… yeah. Boy talk.”

I give Colt a smile and wink at him before turning the

corner and leaving him

smiling.

“Is this about my brothers?”

“Why? Have they said anything?” She asks.

I laugh. “Not at the moment.‘

“Oh. But no. I lied. It’s about

you.” SHe says.

“Me?”

“Yeah.”

Within minutes, we are at

the pack doctor.

“Here she is doctor. Check

her.”

“Check me?”

“Just because you are keeping it a secret does not mean that you shouldn’t be taking care of yourself. I told

the doctor of the situation

and told him that I’d kill him if he said anything.”

“Kanda?!”

She waves her hands and

leaves, closing the door

behind her.

The doctor gives me a frazzled stare. “If it is your

wish that it is kept a secret, then so it shall, Alpha. But the scary lady is right. It is

best to make sure that

everything is going good.”

“Alright.” I give in. I know

they are right.

“Good. We’ll do an internal

sonogram and-”

“No. I don’t want to do that

without Colt.”

“Very well. We can just do a check–up without a

sonogram.”

I nod, relieved. “Okay.

He takes blood and then I

pee in a cup–obviously not

in front of him.

He then puts a device on my

stomach.

“What is this?”

“A fetalscope. It is a specialized stethoscope used

to hear the heartbeat of a

fetus.” He explains.

“Oh.”

He puts the end of the device in his ears and stays silent for a few seconds.

“It is very early in the

pregnancy so it is hard to

hear it but, you can still hear

it. Here.”
He puts the device on my

ears.

“The loud heartbeat is yours.

Ignore that one and try to

listen in between them.”

I stay quiet, concentrating

until I do hear it.

It is so subtle but it is there.

I almost can’t believe it. It is

hard to believe in something when you don’t see it but it is there. There is a tiny little being inside of me. It is

surreal.

“Our little Alpha is growing.

The early stages are crucial

yourself.”

I nod. “How far along do you

think I am?”

“It is hard to determine

without having a look but I would say around twelve

weeks, give or take. Your

morning sickens should

improve soon.”

“That’s great news.” I am

excited about that.

“You know, you won’t be able to hide it soon.” He says. “I give it a week or two till pack

members can tell. Your scent

will start changing soon and

the fetal heartbeat will only get stronger, strong enough that it will be heard by others in the pack.”

I suck in a deep breath. I

need to tell Colt. But I also

need to make a decision

about what to do with my powers. Honora has done this before but never on a

pregnant woman. She

doesn’t know if it will affect

the baby but even she says

that she doesn’t believe it

will. I need to think hard

about this.

I head back to the dining

room, looking for Colt. As I pass through the hall with windows, I notice in the distance that the reforming

camp is gone. I can’t see the wooden structures that were

there before.

Victor did as I asked. It

brings a smile to my face.

“What are you so happy about?” Colt appears behind

me.
“That.” I point out of the

window.

He almost gasps. “It’s gone?”

“Yes! Finally.”

He smiles and turns to me.

“Thank you. I know I haven’t

shown it but it bothered me

every time I saw it.”

I put a hand on his cheek.

“Don’t thank me. It was the

right thing to do.”

He gets close and puts his hands on my waist. “Mh. I need to thank you…I want to thank you. Tonight, let me show you how thankful I

am.” His voice is low and

filled with want. I know how

he wants to thank me. The

way he says it makes a desire

burn in me.

“Okay, I won’t refuse it.”

He kises me. His lps are

always so warm.

“Cass!”

“What?!” I ask, startled.

I turn to see Victor. “There is

another one.”

“Another one? Another

what?”

“Another b*dy!”

“What?!”

“F**k!” Colt curses.

“Where?!”

He leads me upstairs to one

of the bathrooms in the hall.

A body is clumsily lying down inside the tub, her legs

out of the tub.

“A woman?”

“Yes. One of the maids.

“1

The clear shower curtain

thankfully covers her but

you can see all the blood that

slides down the tub.

“This was not so long ago.

Fifteen minutes, give or

take.”

“So they could still be

around?”

“Yet it could be anyone.”

Garret mutters.

“We have a serious problem here. Someone is killing our people and in broad

daylight. A bold move…or a crazy one.” Colt says.

I nod. “Either one is not

good.”

“We haven’t told the pack of

what is happening but I

think we are going to have to

now.” Victor says.

“Alright, if you think we

should, then let’s do it. I just

hope it doesn’t cause panic.”

“I know.” I can tell he is

worried about it too.

“If only you could use your power to find out the truth.”

Garret says.

He is right. If my powers worked, I could ask pack

members and find out who

did it. I could stop another

murder.

I am the Alpha of this pack. This is my family and I need to do something to help.

“I am going to do it.” I mutter

to Colt.

“Do what?”

“I am going to let Honora help me. I need to get control of my power.‘

Colt cautiously nods. “Okay.

I am concerned but this is

your decision.” He hugs me.

I wonder if he would think

the same if he knew I was

with child. I honestly don’t

think he would.

I hug him tightly.

I am sorry. I am sorry for doing this. I am sorry for not

telling you.

As soon as we can, we head back to Honora’s shop. I

don’t know if this is the right

thing to do but I am doing it.
