My Surprise Mate Part 2: Chapter 3
“Try to get some rest, princess.No telling what is in store for us,” Blaze whispered.
I had no idea how he was able to stay so calm.I was a complete mess, or at least I felt like it. I curled up on the cold floor next to his feet and closed my eyes.
“Blaze?” I whispered, “Yeah.”
“Do you think we will be able to make it until Dad finds us?”
“Yes, We will be fine, but Kyra, I plan on getting you out before then. Just be strong for me.”
His voice held nothing but confidence when he spoke, faith I wish I could say I had.
This whole ordeal has shown me that I wouldn’t be a good alpha.
As soon as I get home, if I get home, the first thing I am going to do is make sure dad knows that Zane needs to take his place.
Zane might be my little brother, but he acts more like my big brother.
He is mature and responsible, caring, and a great leader.
Zane is so much like dad, and I know he would have been able to stay calm and confident if he were in this situation.
He would know what to do.
I woke to the cell door slamming against the wall and Blaze growling lowly.
“Rise and shine, princess!”
Devin shouted as he banged the bars on the door he had just flung open.
This time, I stood up more easily, “Hmm, looks like the wolfsbane is wearing off; that’s good for you.
You should be able to shift then.
Unfortunately, it isn’t good for your little boyfriend here.
We don’t want him getting his strength back, now do we?”
Devin smirked as he stalked toward us.I positioned myself in front of Blaze, who was still chained like a wild animal.
“Kyra, move. I’ll be fine.”
I ignored Blaze’s pleading voice behind me. I won’t let them fight him unless it is a fair fight.
“If you want me to work for you when I shift, then I suggest you stop trying to hurt Blaze.” I laughed as he looked at Trey, “I beg to differ.
I think that seeing your little boyfriend suffer will make you want to help more.
You know to keep him safe and all, and since I’m the one calling the shots, we will do it my way.”
Devin reached his dirty hand out to grab my arm, but thankfully, years of training instinctively kicked in.
I kicked my leg up, landing my foot square in his chest and knocking him back. I didn’t move from my place in front of Blaze, who was now yanking at his chains, trying to get free.
Devin was still surprised by my attack, and I took the opportunity to lunge at him, kicking his feet out from under him, causing him to land hard on his back.
“Kyra!” Blaze yelled.
I ducked as Trey attempted to hit me from behind.
I heard Blaze shout, “stop going after the women in your family and fight a man, you piece of s**t!”
I knew what Blaze was doing; he was trying to draw attention to himself.
He was trying to help me when he was the one strung up by chains.
Devin growled as he got back on his feet, “Don’t touch her…” he warned Trey.
“Yeah, puppet, don’t touch me,”
I snarled at him as he lifted his hands and backed away.
For a moment, I was relieved that Blaze wasn’t successful in his distraction, but then I realized that I had left Blaze open to an attack, and I saw it in Devin’s eyes the moment he realized it too.
A silver glint caught my eyes as Devin pulled something out of his pocket.
I jumped at him without hesitation; I had to protect Blaze.
Searing pain ripped through my body as I felt the knife slice down my arm.
The pain only lasted a few seconds and then did nothing but fuel the fury that was raging inside of me.
“Piece of s**t!” I yelled as I spun, kicking him in the jaw.
I mentally thanked grandpa pollo for that move.
Devin stumbled but didn’t fall.
“Looks like my dear old dad has been training with you,” he said before spitting blood out onto the floor.
“Oh yeah,” Grandpa Pollo has taught me the need to press his buttons, but there was no stopping my mouth.
“You wanna see something else he taught me?”
Devin began circling me, “I doubt he taught you anything that he didn’t already teach me, but give it your best shot, princess.”
At his words, I acted like I would try to punch his face and instead slid onto my knees, grabbing a handful of his most precious parts and squeezing as hard as! could.
Devin screamed a high-pitched scream as he fell to his knees. He flicked his hand in the air, and I heard Trey start to attack Blaze.
“Tell him to stop!” I yelled in Devin’s face as I twisted his goods in my other hand.
Something hit the back of my head, causing me to fall over dazed.
I tried to get my eyes to focus and saw Devin as he stood up, “Next time you pull a stunt like that, I won’t just beat your little boyfriend; I’ll rip his throat out.”
Devin kicked me in the ribs before leaving with Trey and locking the cell door.
“Kyra! Babe, don’t go to sleep! I need you to stay awake!”
I heard Blaze shouting at me, but I couldn’t keep my eyes open no matter how hard I tried.
“I’m sorry, Blaze,”
I whispered, or at least tried to whisper.I let the darkness take over me as I listened to Blaze plead with me, but I could not ease his mind or pain.
How useless am I, I thought to myself as I slipped off. I tried to open my eyes as a soft voice called to me, “Don’t push yourself, dear, just listen.”I relaxed at her words as I focused on her voice, “I am the moon goddess, do not be afraid.”
My heart rate spiked as I processed what she said.
Oh my god! I’m dead, and now Blaze is stuck with that mad man all by himself.
I heard the woman giggle softly, “You are not dead, dear. You were hit in the back of the head and then stabbed with a silver knife.
Thankfully silver will never be deadly to you. But I wanted to talk to you. I don’t have long, but you are the one the prophecy speaks of hard for you.
You will have to witness things that will happen, but know that it will not last forever. Stay strong and know you are the key to uniting the species, the way they should have always been.”
I had so many questions for her, but I couldn’t talk.
No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get even a tiny sound out.
So, I let the silence surround me once again.
“Kyra…please wake up…” I heard Blaze’s voice break the silence.
“Please, baby, I need you to be okay.”
The sound of his voice cracking broke my heart.
Never, in my whole life, had I seen or heard Blaze cry. I had never seen him any other way besides being strong and confident. And I was the reason for his pain now.
“I’m okay,” I whispered, my voice hoarse.
“Don’t try to talk, babe. I just needed to know you were okay.”
I could hear the relief in his voice.
“They cleaned your arm and wrapped gauze around it. How does it feel?” he questioned.
I slowly moved my arm around, “It’s a little sore, but nothing unbearable. How long was I out?”
I asked him.
Blaze sighed, “Just one day.I heard Devin and Trey talking. He plans to beat me in front of you and said he would withhold meals if you still didn’t cooperate.”
I sat up slowly, keeping my eyes closed until the spinning stopped.
“I know I promised Blaze, but I can’t sit by and let them do this to you. I’m going to agree to anything he wants. It’s the only way to keep us safe.”
Before I even said it, I knew that Blaze would disagree with me, but I wasn’t prepared for his anger.
“You.Will.Not!” he yelled at me.
“You are royal, and royals don’t bend to the will of others! You can do this, Kyra! I told you not to worry about me; I can handle anything they throw at me.”
His eyes bore into me as he spoke.
I had seen Blaze mad; hell, I had seen him fight, but never had his anger been directed at me; and it hurt.
A tear slipped from my eye, “I’m sorry, Kyra. You just can’t give up…you still want to.”
Blaze’s expression had softened, and I understood he was just trying to get through to me.
In the only way he knew how.
He was trying to encourage me to keep fighting against Devin.
And I had to this was on me.
