Chapter CHAPTER 29
lt;pgt;“Did you do the homework?” Orion took in charge of Selena’s stamina building. They were at the
waterfall. Orion didn’t make her run as far as Zaden did. Instead, he focused on building the core
muscle. He is wearing punch mitts, while Selena was punching him with bare hand. She didn’t leave
much of an impact but she learns to read how to anticipate a punch or attack.
lt;pgt;“Ha huh…” Selena nodded in between her heavy breathing. Zaden can see she was getting to use to
punch mitt, too comfortable with the training. So, inn the middle of punching, Orion crouched down and
slide one leg below Selena, in attempt to knock her down. Selena eye widened at his sudden move and
took a very high jump avoiding his leg.
lt;pgt;“Impressive…” he stood straight with a frown. She shrugged.
lt;pgt;“Can you try climbing the rope?” he pointed at the rope hanging from waterfall. Selena looked at the
rope, inspecting from top to bottom, a little longer then she should. Orion punched gently from behind,
jerking her forward considerably.
lt;pgt;“Don’t just stand there, give it a try!!!” He pointed out. Selena glared at him in annoyance and walked to
the rope. She grabbed the rope. She could hardly pull herself up, even the first few feet. Orion held her
waist and lifted her up, so that she can get ahead start and she doesn’t seem to mind, focusing on the
lt;pgt;“SELENA!!!” a scream came from behind them. Orion and Selena turned to look at the source. It was
lt;pgt;“Let go of the rope” he shouted one more time, walking as fast as he can towards them
lt;pgt;“She was just trying to…” Orion tried to explain when he got cut offlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;“Are you crazy, Orion? She is detached from her wolf, which means she is just a regular human now. If
she falls from that high, she will never recover.” He is blazing in anger.
lt;pgt;“Zaden, I am right here. I can catch her if she falls and it’s not like she is going to die from a few feet of
fall” Orion tried again but Zaden doesn’t seem to register anything. Mating with Selena’s wolf increased
his possessiveness and protecting nature towards her, exponentially. Zaden’s nose flared as he
grabbed Orion’s shirt into a fist and brought him close to him.
lt;pgt;“It’s not like she is going to DIE?” he said through his gritted teeth
lt;pgt;“Zaden, let him go. I’m fine” Selena grabbed Zaden’s arm, trying to pull it away. He had seen Orion
near death in Zaden’s palm and not willing to face that again.
lt;pgt;“Let go Zaden, you are making an unnecessary deal out of this” Orion clenched his jaw. Wolfs are not
made to stand up to their alpha but Orion pushed himself.
lt;pgt;“If you are going to be so careless with her training sessions, I suggest you step out and let me take
care of it” his words dripping venom as they came through gritted teeth
lt;pgt;“Oh you would love that, won’t you?” Orion clenched his jaws. Makeala and others are already there,
she had seen male werewolves fight before and its ugly. She pulled Selena away from there with as
much force as possible. Selena protested with all her might but Makeala is stronger when she uses her
lt;pgt;“What do you mean?” Zaden
lt;pgt;“You want her, don’t you?” Zaden’s grip on his shirt loosened
lt;pgt;“DON’T you use your alpha tone and face me like a real man. You want her all to yourself don’t you? I
saw you kissing her Zaden, when we left her in the city.” Zaden dropped his headlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;“You were cold with her right until you found out that she is a Samrat, then all of a sudden, you kissed
her. Why?” Zaden kept glaring Orion with his head slightly tilted down. Clearly, Orion doesn’t know the
lt;pgt;“Let me tell you why. You want to lure her into becoming your mate, mark her and become the next
King, am I correct?” All the by standers eyes widened except for Zaden who is trying his best to control
lt;pgt;“And you are using sex as your weapon because you know she is a virgin, am I correct? You are trying
to make her addicted to the pleasure of sex. That’s why you came up with this 15days to eclipse story.
Nobody was there to clarify your statement and her wolf is also not going to show up to deny it either,
your free from any suspicious eye, am I correct?” Orion is standing very close to Zaden now. All the
others exchanged look at each other
lt;pgt;“You took the time we have together by putting multiple training on her and you try to remove me from
those who train her, isn’t it? What the fucking hell are you doing in her room, every night?” he shouted
the last sentence and the whole pack remained stiffened after that.
lt;pgt;“And you know she likes me, so you have been trying to keep us apart from day one, don’t you? Its ok
for you to kiss her but not me? Its ok for you to care for her but not me? Its ok for you to hug her but not
me? Let her decide that, you don’t do that for her, Zaden” he slide to the side and took a few steps to
walk away before he stopped, his face right next to Zaden’s. Sun beam splitting between them.
lt;pgt;“You love her for her body, I love her for her heart. I can give her the addictive sex but you cannot give
her the heart your heart” those last words stab deep into Zaden’s heart. Orion walked away from there
despite being stopped by his friends. All of them remained frozen for a minute, the pack leaders doesn’t
know which way to go, Alpha or Beta. Zaden sensed their confusion, he can tell them what to do,lt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;where to go, what is best for them but not whose side to choose. He froze in his spot. A palm reached
his shoulder, it was Xavier, one who is the closest to Orion.
lt;pgt;“He is confused Alpha. Give him some time, he will come around” he said and all the others nodded
with a smile.
lt;pgt;“Do you all think the same way he does? That I do all this because I want to be the king of Samrat? Be
bold with me, otherwise we will be having a dysfunctioning pack.” He is still glaring forward which is just
lt;pgt;“I think you are doing what is best for a pack member” Sitka voiced out. With that, Zaden turned around
and walked away, chin up and his pack followed behind him.
lt;pgt;They exit the clearing and entered the woods. From far, he can see Selena hiding behind Makeala and
arguing with Orion. Orion tried to grab Selena pass Makeala, but Makeala kept pushing her to side,
protecting her. Selena had tears flowing over her cheeks, face filled with worry. She was saying
something, stepping in front of Makeala but nothing can make sense to Orion right at this moment.
Orion grabbed her wrist, pulling her behind him to the left, just in time for Zaden to reach them.
Makeala sensed his the alpha’s presence and calmed down. He came striding with his long legs,
grabbed her other wrist and pulled Selena to him. Selena came crashing into his embrace and Zaden
glared at Orion before he whispered a word, sending shiver down everyone standing there
lt;pgt;He turned and walked to the right, towards the brick house. Selena had to jog to meet with his long
strides. A shiver climbed up her spine at Zaden’s word. His grip on her wrist, firm and steady. The pack
followed them behind except for Orion.lt;/pgt;
