My Lycan Luna Chapter 14: My dad and… brothers?
A month. A freaking month without my mate and it feels like an eternity. Grandma has told me that my mate has stopped in a few cities. She hasn’t checked on my mate in a week. I could tell grandma is busy with something else and I can also sense she’s worried. A knock echoed in my office before the door opened. Alondra and Ray, my two Betas, walked in.
“What’s up?” I asked.
“Everything in the southern pack is good. There are no problems and the borders are also good. No sight of the rogues. Also, I did some research on Bernard Kerr. He has four brothers and all of them are rogues. Besides that, I couldn’t find much about them, but I contacted Detective Stone and he will be here waiting an hour”, Alondra informed me.
“Good, thank you” I said, then looked at Ray.
“I just wanted to remind you that you have a meeting in four weeks with Alpha Farris. He changed the location to a hotel. I sent you the information to your email”, Ray informed me.
“Thank you” I said.
“Have you heard anything from our Luna?” Alondra asks.
“Nothing and it’s driving me insane” I admitted.
“Are you still thinking of going after her?” Ray asked.
“Yes, I’ll go after the meeting” I said, and he nodded. They both nod their heads and bow before leaving. I sit back in my chair and pray to the moon goddess that my mate is okay and safe wherever she is.
I groaned at the light shining brightly on my face. Suddenly, the events from last night flashed in my head and my eyes snapped open and I sat up instantly regretting it as my stomach rolled. I saw an open door and I realized it was a bathroom and I quickly ran inside just in time to empty out the contents in my stomach. The hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge and I know I’m no longer alone. I spit in the toilet bowl one more time before flushing it. As I stood up, I let my claws elongate and I let out a warning growl as I turned. At the door stood a tall man about six feet five inches, with broad shoulders and muscular. He has long black hair pulled back in a low ponytail. His purple eyes shine brightly with happiness as he looks at me. He looks like my dad.
“D-dad?” I ask.
“Nope, but here is your toothbrush and toothpaste. There’s some clean towels right next to you and some clean clothes. When you finish, come down”, he says, placing the toothbrush and toothpaste on the sink before leaving. I brush my teeth then take a much needed shower. I also find a razon, so after washing my hair, I shave, then wash my body twice. After I finish, I turn off the shower and dry myself before getting dressed. I go to my bag and grab my brush and start brushing my hair. Once I finished, I headed out of the room. The smell of bacon filling the air. I followed the smell of bacon down the stairs and into the kitchen. When I get there, I stop in my track. I see the same guy from earlier who smiles and gestures for me to have a seat.
Suddenly, the man by the stove turns around and when his eyes land on me he smiles. He has bright green eyes. He’s just as tall as the other man with broad shoulders and also muscular, but his hair is cut short on the side and slightly longer at top. Then the other man turns around and the breath is knocked out of my lungs. Dad stood there, not looking a day older than the last time I saw him. My hand unknowingly went to my necklace as the room began to spin. I stumbled a bit, but strong arms wrapped around me.
“Easy Angel. You need to eat” the guy with the bright green eyes said. He guided me to a chair and I sat down. Dad kept looking at me. A plate of pancakes and lots of bacon was placed in front of me.
“Would you like tea or orange juice?” the one next to me asked.
“May I have coffee?” I asked, but he shook his head.
“Not in your condition” he said. Could he possibly mean that I have a concussion? I thought to myself.
“Orange juice please” I said, and quickly dug into my food. I watched as dad sat in front of me and the other man sat on the other chair and they also began to eat. I thought I would have so many questions to ask him, but I only had one.
“Why?” I asked just as soon as he finished eating. He took a deep breath and looked at me right in the eyes.
“Hunters had gotten word that there was a Lycan in Florida. I thought that they weren’t going to find me, that we were safe, but that night, on your ninth birthday… I realized I was wrong. Your mother and you were fast asleep when I heard someone in the house. I went to go check and I saw a hunter in your room. My Lycan took over and we dragged him out before killing him. I needed to keep my pregnant mate and daughter safe. So, I led them away from you all. My Lycan was missing our mate and daughter and so was I. I wanted to go back and I tried but found myself surrounded by hunters. I was seriously injured and I thought I was going to die, until your brothers came along. They saved me”, dad says. I looked at the two guys and they smiled at me. Besides my real dad, I have two more brothers.
“I have a family” I said softly. I felt a hand on mine and I looked to see it was the one with the green eyes.
“We have heard a lot about you, Angel. It’s a pleasure to finally meet you princess. I’m Elijah, and this is Asher”, he pointed to the guy beside me.
“You shifted. I can tell” dad says.
“I did on my eighteenth birthday during the blood moon” I said, and their eyes widened.
“Wow sis, you are a tough cookie. The pain of shifting during the blood moon is three times greater than shifting during a regular day”, Asher says.
“Princess…” dad called. I looked at him and I could see sadness in his eyes.
“I felt the mate bond break. Please, tell me what happened” dad pleaded. I took a deep breath and told my father and brothers what had happened since dad left until now. By the time I was finished, I was a crying mess. I didn’t think I would cry over this again, but for some reason, telling my dad and my brothers hurt. Dad let out a roar that shook the whole house before running out the kitchen door. I went to get up but I felt weak and exhausted. Elijah picked me up.
“We got you princess” he said, k!ssing the top of my head. I buried my head on his chest as my sobs turned to hiccups. Elijah laid me back on the bed I woke up in earlier.
“Rest a little, sis. You need it”, Asher said, placing a k!ss on my forehead. I felt vulnerable and scared after what dad said. My brothers went to leave, but I grabbed their hands.
“Please… stay with me for a while” my voice sounded weak and vulnerable. My brothers nodded and laid next to me one on each side. They radiated warmth and safety just like my mate. Not long after, I was pulled into a deep sleep.
I woke up to find my dad sitting on the foot of the bed and my brothers were nowhere around. I sat up and scooted next to dad.
“I’m sorry I left. I was trying to keep you all safe, but it all back fired. I lost my mate and never got to meet my son. I’m sorry princess. I’m sorry I left you, your mom, and your brother alone. I hope one day you can forgive me” dad said as tears streamed down his face. I understand now why he left. He did it to protect us. Then, I realized something. I was never mad at my dad for leaving. I just missed him.
“I was never mad at you dad. At first, I thought that you didn’t love us anymore, but now I understand. Like I said. I was never mad, I just… missed you”, I admitted.
“I think about you, your mom, and your brother every day. I would talk to your older brothers about you all and they would even call your mom ‘mom’. Three years after I left, we went back to look for you, but you weren’t there. We had no idea where to look. I hired a private investigator, but nothing ever came up. Now I know why” he said. I got up and grabbed my backpack. I took out a picture of mom, peanut, and me.
“This was taken before it happened. His name was Logan, but we always called him peanut. He was a great artist”. I put up my sleeve on my left arm.
“He did that?” dad asked with wide eyes.
“He drew it. Mom and him were there when I got it. You should have seen him when he was telling the artist what to add and where. He had an eye for detail, but he also wanted to learn about cars. I used to tell him stories about you showing me how to take an engine apart, clean it, then put it back together. He always said he felt like he knew you from the stories I told him. Even though he never met you, he still loved you”, I said, handing dad the picture. Through silent sobs, dad brought the picture to his lips and k!ssed it.
“I know it hurts dad, but they are not hurting anymore and they are watching over us. They wouldn’t want to see you like this” I said, running my hand through his hair. He handed me the picture but I shook my head.
“You keep it dad. I have more back in my pack” I said.
“Your pack. Right, you’re a Luna” dad said.
“How did you know? I just told you my mate’s name”, I said.
“First because of the mark. It’s an Alpha’s mark. Second, every pack knows the Knight’s name. Colin Knight is the Alpha of all Alphas, princess” dad said.
“Dad… I not only came to see you, but also for you to teach me. This thing with what happened with mom and peanut… it has left so much anger in me. I’m afraid to be around my mate and pack members. I’m afraid I would lose control of Faith and hurt them. I need you to teach me not just to control my angel, but also to fight in my Lycan form. I need to be prepared for when I face the Kerr brothers again” I said.
“Your brothers and I can help you with your anger, but we can’t teach you to fight. Not in your condition” dad said.
“What do you mean? I feel fine and the wound on my head has healed” I said, moving my hair so he could see.
“You don’t know, do you?” dad asked. I shook my head, feeling lost.
“Princess, you’re pregnant” dad said. It felt like a bucket of cold water had been thrown over my head. I left my mate without knowing I was pregnant. I have been running from the Kerr brothers and their gang while I was pregnant.
‘Faith?’ I called.
‘Dad is telling the truth. We have a pup growing inside of us’ she said excitedly. I looked at dad placing a hand on my flat stomach.
“Colin” was all I said.
“We’ll teach you how to control your anger. It will be a little difficult because you are pregnant, but I know you can do it. After we know you can control your anger, then we can get your mate. I’m sure his Betas can watch over the pack for a little while” dad said. I couldn’t help but hug dad.
“Thank you dad. I hope this time you won’t leave again”, I said.
“I’m not going anywhere, princess” dad said. Dad k!ssed the top of my head and we both headed out the door and to the kitchen.
“You slept through lunch, so you need to have dinner” dad said.
“You’re awake princess”, Asher smiled. He was the one cooking now.
“Oh, I wanted to ask. Did you also mark your mate?” dad asked.
“Yes, why?” I asked.
“His wolf will be going into a transition soon. Once his wolf accepts it, he’ll become a Lycan”, dad says.
“So, you’ll have to teach him as well?” I asked.
“No, he’s a werewolf. You, on the other hand, you didn’t know anything about this and with what happened…” he sighs, shaking his head.
“We will teach you, princess. I’m sorry you and your Lycan were afraid to be around your mate or other pack members” dad said.
“Was mom also a Lycan?” I asked.
“No, even though I marked her she was happy with being human, so she rejected her Lycan. I remember one time I said I wished I could be human too, but she said that she loved me just the way I was” Dad smiled at the memory.
“Did mom know about Elijah and Asher?” I asked as Elijah placed a plate of steak and potatoes in front of me.
“Yes, she knew about them. She wanted to meet them and we were going to take a trip here, but all that happened with the Hunters”, dad sighed. We made light conversation during dinner. I told them about Colin and how sweet he was to me when I first met him. Something told me to skip over when he k!ssed Tara, so I did. After that, we all sat by the chimney and my brothers told me about themselves. They have the same mom and, obviously, dad is their father. Asher is older by two years. They haven’t found their mates yet but, hoping they do soon. I learned about their likes and dislikes. Oh, I also learned how protective they were over me even before they even knew me.
“Alright princess. It’s late and you need your rest. We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow” dad said.
“Good night” I said, k!ssing all three of them on their foreheads.
“Good night princess” they said in unison. I went up to my room. I grabbed my phone and turned it on, but there was no signal. I sighed, turning it off again, then placing it back in my bag. I miss Colin. I wonder how he would react to knowing that I’m pregnant. I closed my eyes and, with a soft smile and a hand on my belly, I fell asleep.
