I walked out of the room and saw that Drake had come to the pack hospital.
“How is she?” Logan jumped up and walked over to me as soon as he saw me.
“They didn’t let me see her.” I said. “They took my blood and told me to wait outside.”
“Fuck.” Logan sighed and ran his hand through his hair.
“Where is Rolf?” I asked Drake.
“In the cellars.” he answered. “We pumped him full of wolfsbane.”
“Good.” I growled.
The door opened and the doctor walked outside. Everybody jumped up and ran toward him. Logan almost knocked him down.
“Alpha Logan, Beta Andrew.” the doctor said and took a step back from Logan.
“How is she?” Logan and I asked at the same time.
“We managed to stabilize her.” the doctor said. “She is still in critical condition. He pumped so much wolfsbane into her that I was really surprised to see her alive. She should be dead.”
Logan and I growled loudly. My heart was beating painfully. I was so close to losing her forever. My hands were shaking, and Asher was constantly whining.
“She lost a lot of blood.” the doctor continued, ignoring our growls. “He cut her deeply several times. He broke two of her ribs, and she has bruises all over her body. Due to having so much wolfsbane in her body, she couldn’t heal, and she won’t be able to for a while. We need to remove all the wolfsbane from her body in order for her to heal. I don’t think she will wake up until we do.”
I didn’t know what to say. My heart was breaking. This was my fault. She was in there because of me.
Logan was shaking. His mom and Amy were crying silently. Drake had a pissed-off look on his face.
“There is one more exam I would like to do.” the doctor said when none of us spoke. “We could wait for her to wake up and ask her about it, but I am afraid that we are risking a lot if we don’t do it now and if we don’t take the necessary steps.”
“What exam?” Logan asked.
“I need your permission, Beta Andrew.” he said, looking at me.
“Of course.” I said. “What do you need to do?”
The doctor looked between Logan and me, suddenly nervous.
“A rape kit.” he said quietly.
My heart stopped beating and I couldn’t breathe.
I knew that there was a chance that he touched her. I just didn’t want to think about it.
Logan growled, and fur started growing on his arms. s**t.
Drake ran toward him and pulled his hands behind his back.
“Calm down, Logan.” Drake said. “You can’t shift here.”
“Shouldn’t Logan be able to feel if somebody other than him…” Logan’s mom asked, stopping before she finished her question.
He never felt anything like that. He would have told me. He would have gone crazy if he felt he was doing something like that to her.
“He should.” the doctor said, eyeing Logan nervously. “But she had so much wolfsbane in her body that I am afraid he wouldn’t feel even if he killed her.”
Oh, my Goddess.
He had to give her much more wolfsbane than I thought. Mates can feel if the other one is killed, even if they are across the world from them, even if they rejected each other. In some cases, even if they choose another mate.
How the hell was she alive?
“Do the exam, doctor.” I said, growling. “Where do I sign?”
“Thank you, Beta.” the doctor said. “Nurse Rose will take you to the front desk so you can sign the paperwork.”
“When will we know the results?” Logan’s mom asked.
“I will get one of the nurses to do the exam immediately, and I will let you know as soon as we get the results.” the doctor said and walked back inside the room.
I sighed and ran my hand through my hair.
“If that fucker touched her…” Logan growled loudly.
“Don’t, man.” Drake stopped him. “Don’t go there.”
The nurse came out and told me to follow her.
She gave me a bunch of papers to sign and told me I could go back to the waiting room when I finished signing them.
I walked back and sat beside Amy.
“Are you okay, Beta?” she asked me with a trembling voice.
“It’s Andrew, Amy.” I told her, staring at the wall. “And no, I am not okay. I won’t be until she wakes up and tells me she forgives me.”
“She will, Andrew.” Amy said. “She loves you so much.”
“She is all I have.” I said quietly. “I can’t lose her.”
Not only could I lose her to death, but I could also lose her because of my own stupidity. What if she woke up and told me she didn’t want anything to do with me anymore?
Asher was whining and growling inside my head. Just the thought of losing his sister was hurting him badly. I could feel that he was angry at me as well. He blamed me for this.
And he should have blamed me.
What are you thinking about? I got a link from Logan. Leon told me Asher is distraught.
Not only could I lose her to death, Logan. I linked him back. I could lose her because I was a stupid man who didn’t believe her. What if she wakes up and tells me she doesn’t want anything to do with me?
I know. He sighed. I am afraid of the same thing. But we are not losing her. Not to death, not to her rejecting us. We are not giving up. She is your sister and my mate. She will always be by our side.
I wanted to respond, but the sound of the door opening interrupted me.
We jumped up from our seats and saw the doctor walking toward us.
I couldn’t ask him. I couldn’t speak the words.
“He didn’t rape her.” the doctor said.
I let out a breath I didn’t know I was holding. Logan sighed and clenched his fists.
“Thank Goddess.” Logan’s mom said and hugged Amy.
“When can we see her?” Logan asked.
“Nurses are finishing up in her room.” the doctor said. “You can go inside in a few minutes. But only Alpha and Beta. We can’t risk infection while she is in critical condition.”
We all nodded, and the doctor continued. “I don’t think I have to say this, but Alpha, the mate bond will help her heal, so I recommend you spend as much time with her as possible.”
“Of course.” Logan said. “My mom can handle pack business until she wakes up.”
Luna Gloria nodded and smiled at her son.
“I can also help.” Drake added. “I am not going back to my pack until I know she will be okay.”
“Thank you, Drake.” Logan said.
“Beta Andrew, I recommend you spend as much time as possible with her.” the doctor said. “You are her brother, and your presence will help her.”
“I wasn’t planning on being anywhere else.” I said.
“Good.” the doctor nodded. “Nurse Rose will come and get you so you can go in and see her.”
I sighed, and Luna Gloria gave me a hug.
“She will be okay, honey.” she said. “You just watch over her like you always do.”
Her words were like knives to my heart. I didn’t watch over her when she needed me most. That’s why she was fighting for her life in that room.
