I was so focused on Genesis and Nyla that I hadn’t noticed Blaze standing next to me holding my hand with his little one.
Genesis spun around grabbing Blaze up in her arms and k!ssing his cheeks.
“Did she touch you?” she questioned him, finally setting him back down on his feet.
She isn’t fast enough.” He said confidently, holding his chin up high.
There were two men I had never seen before carrying Nyla off with Ash following behind them.
To say Ash was pissed would be an understatement.
“Are you okay?” Dane asked me as he looked me over.
Shadowmoon’s future Beta made sure of that,” I smiled down at the little boy who beamed with pride.
Dane took a knee so he was at eye level with Blaze, “You did a great job buddy, but you do understand that you could have been seriously hurt, right?” “Yes, Alpha Dane, but I already know that I am strong enough to protect her against anyone who is a threat.” He didn’t waver as he spoke to his Alpha.
Dane’s face contorted in confusion, “You seem sure of yourself Blaze.” Blaze nodded explanation, “How can you be? Nyla is much older and her wolf much stronger.
You aren’t even old enough to shift into your wolf yet.” Dane was trying to figure out Blaze’s way of thinking and get him to understand he put himself in danger.
“Your daughter is going to be my mate.
No one will touch her.
Just like my daddy makes sure no one touches my mom, and you make sure no one touches Luna Holly.
I will make sure no one touches her.” Genesis’s eyes went as wide as saucers as she looked at her son.
Dane was speechless.
This little boy, at 5 years old, knew my unborn daughter was his mate, and he was talking as if he was at least in his teenage years already.
Dane picked Blaze up, “Follow me,” he said to me and Genesis.
We followed him back into the pack office and sat down.
He sat Blaze down on the couch before taking his seat behind his desk.
Genesis sat next to her son, just staring at him in aww.
Soon there was a knock on the door, “ Come in.” Dane hollered.
Once again, we were all sitting together: me, Dane, Genesis, Ash, Zayd, and Adria; the only difference is now Blaze was there with us.
“Blaze, can you tell Alpha Zayd, Luna Adria, and your dad what you told us outside,” Dane told the little boy.
Blaze he had said outside.
Everyone was stunned.
Ash kneeled in front of him, “How do you know this, Blaze?” Blaze shrugged his shoulders, “The Moon Goddess told me.” He said it like it was no big deal.
Everyone sat with their mouths on the floor at his statement.
“Did she tell you anything else?” I asked him.
He looked at me and smiled, “No ma’am, just that she is going to be my mate and she will need my protection.
The Moon Goddess said that I am the best one for the job.” “Babe, why don’t you go ahead and take Blaze home, he should take a nap before the ceremony later,” Ash told Genesis.
She stood reaching for her son’s hand.
He quickly pulled away and ran to stand in front of Dane, bowing his head, “Alpha Dane, will you stay with Luna Holly the rest of the day? I have to go home.” Dane gently lifted the boy’s chin with his finger, “Hey Blaze, thank you for looking out for Luna Holly today.” Blaze smiled widely at the praise from Dane, “ And yes, I will be with her the rest of the day.” Blaze threw his arms around Dane’s neck hugging him, “Thank you Alpha.” He ran over to me placing his little hands on my belly, “I have to go, but your dad is with you now,” he whispered.
He grabbed his mom’s hand and pulled her to the door, leaving us all sitting there in silence trying to figure out what the hell just After a while of sitting in silence, Zayd spoke up, “Well, I guess we have our answer.” I couldn’t help but smile.
“We have one answer,” Dane said, looking at all of us.
“Ash, thoughts?” he looked at Ash who sat with his head in his hands.
“I believe him.
Blaze has never lied or made stuff up before.
It’s not how he was raised.” Dane nodded his head, “I know.
What I don’t know is what all this means.” “Can I make a suggestion?” Adria spoke up for the first time.
We all looked at her patiently, “We may not know what all this means, but we all know it points to either Holly or her unborn pup being in danger.
I suggest harder training for our warriors and Holly having protection at all times.” All three men agreed with Adria, “Holly, I feel that we may need to try to find out more about your parents, who they are.” “I’m so sorry.
I didn’t mean to bring any trouble here.” I started crying.
Dane stood walking over to me and wrapping his arms around me, “Don’t be sorry babe.
You didn’t do this and obviously, this is right where you are supposed to be.” He k!ssed the top of my head.
“Dear, don’t cry…I know it’s hormones though…” Adria winked at me as she too hugged me.
“You’re not only part of our pack, but you are the first time Zayd actually talked to me.
He stood giving mea quick hug.
“Ooohhh come here,” Ash said playfully to me, “ Evidently you are my family too! Don’t cry, we like a good fight around here!” Ash pulled me to him for a hug.
I felt better after they all gave me hugs and reassured me this wasn’t my fault.
“You look tired, dear.
Dane! Take her home.
..she is pregnant with my grandchild, and she needs rest!” his mother started scolding him.
Zayd and Ash both started laughing, but stopped abruptly when Adria glared at them, then it was my turn to laugh.
It was very clear that all the big bad wolves were scared of her.
Dane wanted to carry me home, but I refused.
Yes, I was tired, but I could still walk.
It wasn’t that far anyway.
We walked into the house, and I went straight to the bedroom, kicking my shoes off as I walked down the hallway.
I plopped down on the bed and waited for Dane.
He walked in with a cold bottle of water and set it on the bedside table before pulling his shirt and jeans off to lay with me.
I cuddled up to his side as my mind raced.
I still didn’t understand fully what any of this meant.
The looks on everyone’s faces told me just how big of a deal this is, and how serious they are taking it.
“ I’m scared,” I told Dane, keeping my face hidden as the tears will let anything happen.” I sniffled as more tears ran down my face, “I don’t want anyone to get hurt because of me, especially little Blaze, he’s so cute.”
Dane chuckled, making my head bounce a little with the movement, “Oh, believe me, no one will touch that boy, Genesis would rip them to shreds before they even got a chance.
And Ash mind linked me to tell me he is going to be training Blaze more.” I sat up as I started crying harder, having a hard time catching my breath.
Dane quickly pulled me into his lap, brushing a stray hair from my face.
“Shh…it’s okay babe.
I promise.” A wave of nausea hit me.
I jumped from the bed and ran into the bathroom.
Dane followed close behind me.
I barely made it to the toilet before I started puking.
He stood beside me rubbing my back gently.
I leaned my back against the wall as Dane wet a rag for me to clean my face with.
“Dane …” everything was spinning as I tried to make my eyes focus on him and then everything went black.
