Blaze ran straight to me, seemingly out of breath.
“Blaze what is it?”
I questioned the little boy.
“Something isn’t right.”
He stated as he stood in front of me with wide eyes.
I looked at Dane, confused, who shook his head.
Dane sat on the couch next to me, “Alright Blaze, I need you to explain a little more.”
I couldn’t help but notice how good Dane was with Blaze.
He was so patient with him and never disregarded him.
“I don’t know Alpha,”
he said as he bowed his head, “I just had this overwhelming feeling something bad is about to happen and I needed to be here.”
Blaze seemed a little confused himself.
I noticed Dane’s eyes glaze over briefly before he stood to his feet, “Blaze you stay here with Holly.
I’ll be back.”
I sat up straight on the edge of the couch, “What?! What’s going on Dane!”
He was already rushing out the door, “ Colby will be right outside the door.
Someone is at the border.
Without another word, he was gone.
I sat staring at the door trying to figure out what the hell that meant, as Blaze started pacing the floor.
I had never seen a kid do that before, not one as young as him.
“So, Blaze, how has your training been going?”
I tried to distract both of us.
I could tell he was bulking lately.
“It’s going great Luna,”
his eyes lit up with excitement, “I can’t take my dad down yet, but one day I will get there.”
He seemed excited at this thought.
The room fell silent again as Blaze looked out the window.
The time seemed to drag.
I knew Dane hadn’t been gone long, but it seemed like hours as I sat and waited.
I hoped everything was okay.
Blaze groaned as he walked away from his spot in front of the window, taking a seat on the couch.
Soon after, there was a knock on the front door before it opened, revealing a fuming, Genesis.
she shouted as she came through the door, “The next time you leave without telling me I swear to you now, you will regret it!”
She made her way into the living room, “Luna Holly,”
she bowed her head at me as she sat down.
“I’m sorry for him…”
she motioned at Blaze.
I told her with a smile, “Do you know what’s going on?”
She looked down at the floor, “Some.”
She didn’t want to look at me.
I narrowed my eyes at her.
I was getting tired of being left in the dark about everything.
“Tell me what you know,”
I said as sternly as I could.
Genesis fidgeted in her seat a little, “ Alpha Dane would probably rather talk to you himself about it.
anything when I told her about my dreams…even though I could tell they meant something.
She had pretty much told me the same thing—wait for Dane.
“?’m not waiting for Dane to decide to tell me.
If you know what is going on, then you need to tell me right now.”
I knew I shouldn’t be mad at her, but it was hard not to.
After several moments, Genesis finally started talking, “I don’t know a lot.
Just that a woman had shown up at the border.
She waited there to talk to Alpha Dane.
I’m not sure who she is or what she wanted, but I know it had something to do with you.”
I wasn’t sure what to think about this.
Part of me was furious at Dane and part of me was terrified.
I couldn’t think of any female that would come looking for me here.
I stood up and began pacing, not able to sit still any longer.
“You should be resting.
Didn’t Dr. Winters tell you bedrest?”
she questioned, still keeping her eyes down.
Rest? How was I supposed to relax or rest? “Do you want to watch some cartoons with me?”
Blaze brought me out of my thoughts, “When I’m upset, I like to watch cartoons, maybe it will help you too.”
A smile crept on my face as I sat back down on the couch and Genesis turned Blaze zoned out on the kid show Genesis turned on and it gave me the chance to question her some more, “Do you know anything else?”
She looked at me this time and shook her head, “I don’t, sorry.”
I sighed knowing now I would have to get Dane to tell me what was going on.
A breeze blew through the room as Dane and Ash walked through the door, “ Well speak of the devil.”
Ash smirked at my comment, but Dane’s face stayed stoic.
Ash cleared his throat, “Let’s go y’all.”
Genesis stood and grabbed Blaze’s hand, pulling him to the door.
He started whining, not wanting to leave yet, and Dane let out a low growl, shocking even me.
“Stop behaving like that with your parents!”
he told Blaze.
Without any more fuss, they left, leaving us alone.
Dane walked to the kitchen and came back with two bottles of water, handing one to me as he sat down.
I wanted him to tell me who that was and what she wanted; I wanted him to tell me without having to question him.
I could feel my anger starting to build as I sat waiting.
I had finally had enough.
“Who was she?!”
I questioned a little louder than I intended to.
Dane looked at me as he sighed, reaching for my hand, “How about you rest for a little bit and then we can talk about it over dinner.”
That was it.
I had finally reached my boiling point.
“No! I’m tired of you not telling me anything! I know she was here because of me, so just tell me!!”
I shouted at him.
He nodded his head slowly before locking eyes with me, “She’s your mother,” he whispered.
