IN THE ARMS OF MY ALPHA By Cassandra M Chapter 22

Chapter 22 


I was sitting in my office after dinner and had just finished talking with Alpha Marco, the current head of the council. He confirmed with me that blood pacts were wolf ways that were not abolished and were highly regarded in the council.

The responsibility of the pact lay with the parties involved. In this case, it was with Andrea’s father and Alpha Melvin. And with Andrea’s father gone, no one would be able to prove that he was forced into the pact. And in the wolf ways, arranged unions were nothing unusual as long as both parties during the time of the union were of age. Everything he told me I was already aware of, but I was looking for something more. A loophole, a way out.

And he gave me hope. Any blood pact created for the sake of union always has a way out. It was an unwritten rule followed b y everyone. If there was no way out, the contract would be deemed invalid. And this was what I was determined to find


It was either Alpha Melvin didn’t write any way out – and we could just ignore the pact and move on. Or maybe he was smart enough to put it in writing but Riley didn’t want us to find out how. Either way, it gave me hope.

I just needed my hand on the contract.

“What if he doesn’t want to show you the contract?” Beta Paul asked me after I explained to him how the conversation with Alpha Marco went.

“Then I will get the council involved. He threatened me with the council, I will return the favor to him.”

“Should I arrange a meeting with Alpha Riley then?”

“I don’t think he will allow it. We will go there unannounced, but I need to have contact with someone from the council who can reach out to him right away if he refuses to hand us the contract. Meanwhile, dispatch a spy to patrol the Silver Moon Pack’s borders. I want Riley’s movement, whether he’s inside o routside his territory. In that way, I know when he’s in there, s o we could go there as soon as we have the council’s approval.”

My Beta just nodded his head and looked at me, a solemn

expression on his face, “How are you taking this?”

“I don’t know, man. I was more worried for Andrea than for myself. But I couldn’t make any moves until I found out what was in the contract. And we need to do it fast. Andrea’s birthday is approaching, and I’m sure the fucker won’t delay taking her away from here.”

“Maybe we need to hide Andrea somewhere once she turns eighteen?”

“And have the council run after us? If that happens, the more I can’t do anything to help her.”

“You’re right. I just couldn’t believe Riley would stoop that low to use the pact to tie Andrea to him.”

I didn’t say anything more. Too many things were running through my mind, but I couldn’t do anything until I had the contract.

“Let’s call it a night, Alpha. I will just leave instructions to our men to position themselves somewhere to spy on Alpha Riley starting tonight, and then I’ll head off to bed afterward. You should too. Take some rest.”

I just nodded my head and watched as my Beta left the room. I stayed for a moment, and when my mind couldn’t think of any more things to think of, I headed off to the third floor after setting the dimmed light for the whole packhouse.

The whole house was quiet already. I knew both my Beta and Gamma were still outside, and only Andrea was home with me.

Instead of heading into my room, my feet led me to hers. I was hoping she was still awake.

I knocked at her door softly, leaning my forearm against the door pillar, and listened as small footsteps hurried to the door.

She opened the door and her smile widened upon seeing me. Her reaction was totally the opposite of what she showed me the last time I was here.

“Hi!” I said while holding my breath. I was scared that her mood would suddenly change and she would push me away again.

“Hi!” But her smile didn’t falter. “What are you doing here? D o you want to come in?” Her hand was still holding on to the door as she opened it wide.

“Hmmm.. The last time I was here, someone told me I was not allowed inside.”

She giggled and rolled her eyes playfully, “Shut up and come i n.”

“No, I don’t think so.” I chuckled as I coiled an arm around her waist and lifted her off the floor and threw her small frame onto my shoulder, her head onto my back.

“Caspian! What are you doing?” She gasped before she asked i na hushed voice as I closed her bedroom door and walked us towards my room.

“Since I’m not allowed in your room, then I think we should stick to my room.”

She giggled again, and it was like music to my ears. “I can walk, just in case you’re not aware.”

“I know you can. But your knees need to rest, because I’m sure by the end of the night, you won’t be able to walk straight for a while.”

“Caspian!” She slapped my back as she clamped her legs together. I laughed heartily as I opened my door, closing it with my feet as we came in.:

I went straight to the bed and threw her in the middle of it. Her body bounced on the mattress as she giggled more.

She looked fucking divine. Her hair was sprawled out around her, and her nightshirt was hiking up, allowing me a glimpse o fher thighs.

I subconsciously licked my lips as my eyes wandered around her body.

Andrea’s eyes widened as she pulled the hem of her nightdress down and wiggled her finger at me, a teasing smile on her lips. “We’re not doing anything tonight, Caspian.”

“Why not?” I asked as I took off my shirt and threw it somewhere on the floor, just leaving my jeans on. I saw Andrea’s eyes sparkle as she raked my torso before she lifted her gaze back to my face.

“Because… I’m not ready yet.”

“Are you scared?” I asked her as I crawled into bed and hovered my body over her.

She nodded, biting her bottom lip.

I kissed her nose before dropping my body beside her and snaking an arm around her back as I pulled her to my side, hugging her tightly.

“Then we don’t need to do anything. But will you stay here with me tonight?”

Are you mad?”

“No. You have given me so much already. You get to decide the pace of this. I can wait…” I closed my eyes and rested my lips o n her hair.

“Caspian… even if we don’t do it tonight, it doesn’t mean I didn’t want to.”

“You don’t need to explain. I would never force anything on you anymore.”

“Why are you so nice to me?”

“Because I think I’m starting to understand you better.”

She tilted her head and looked at me, her brows furrowing.” What do you mean?”

“You want to take control of your life. All your life, everybody was just telling you what you needed to do and where you needed to be. And I did exactly that when I sent you away.” I leaned my elbow on the mattress and rested my head on my palm as I looked at her. “So now, we’ll start to listen to what Andrea wants and what Andrea…”

I was not able to finish my words because she started crying, hiccupping as she brushed her palms on my chest. “I don’t think that’s possible. An omega doesn’t get to decide…”

“Ssshh…” I curled a finger under her chin and tilted her face u p to look at me, cutting out her words. “How many times do I

have to remind you that ranks don’t matter to me?”

“I hope I was betrothed to you rather than Riley. Then I don’t need to fight it.” She said this in an almost inaudible voice, but it was enough for me to hear and for those words to crush my heart.

I wanted to say something about the subject, but I didn’t want her to be sadder.

“Do you think I’ll be a good ‘chosen mate’? Maybe you’ll run away from me if you were betrothed to me.” I chuckled.

“You’re not that bad. Aside from that, you snore, I don’t see anything bad about you yet. Maybe if we mated, then I’ll find out if you fart loud and smelly…” And she started giggling so heartily that my heart.started to warm up.

“I could fart now, then you’ll find out…”

She laughed so hard and scooted her body into mine, as I wrapped my arms around her and just let her laugh die out.

“It won’t make you run away, right? If my fart is that bad?” I snickered as she shook her head.

“Nothing can make me run away from you. You’re too perfect… “Her fingers trailed along my collarbone, sending shivers up my spine. “Do you think I can give you a son? They said only a n Alpha Female can guarantee a son to an Alpha… And that’s why they are being sought after.”

“If we don’t get a son on the first try, then we can try again,

and again, and again.”

“But what if we ended up with all girls?”

“Then I need to build a bigger princess treehouse to fit all of them.”

She giggled before she looked at me again, her eyes twinkling. “But who will become the next Alpha then?”

“We have many daughters who can step up to the role. I’m not worried.”

“I think you’ll be the best father ever…”

“Just the best father? I didn’t get the best mate award?” I feigned a frown as her face lit up as she looked at me.

She crawled on top of me and cupped my cheeks, her eyes boring deep into mine. “Caspian, I really wish you were mine. And if all this happens one day, I know you’ll be the best mate ever. And I’ll be the luckiest female alive.”

Her eyes started to water, but before I could return the beautiful words she told me, she had already crashed her lips against mine.
