16. The Aftermath

Jacob’s POV

I was sitting on my room with my head in my hands when I became aware of Skylar coming up the stairs towards me. Raising my head from the haven of my hands I saw him standing casually against the frame of my door.

“What have I done now?” I asked, sarcasm dripping from my words but I know that he could see behind it, he could see the hurt, regret and self pity that I had begun to drown myself in. Skylar gave me a half smile but I could see the anger and disappointment in his eyes, we had all known each other long enough to know what we were all really thinking.

“Is she alright?” I had to know, I would never forgive myself if I’d hurt her.

A genuine smile lit up Skylar’s face usually passive as he replied, “she’s fine, better than fine actually”.

“How so?” last time I’d seen her she was shaking on the ground. Skylar looked at me and smiled, but his eyes said something else, they were slightly worried and there was something else I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

The next words that exited Skylar’s mouth shocked me, “seems like your not the only one who’s found their mate.” A small smile graced my face as I realised what he meant. Evie had been pining over her mate since I could remember. My next thoughts completely removed the smile from my face.

“Who is it, I swear to god if he tries anything I’ll seriously kill him.” I raised myself from my bed, ready to go and confront Evangeline’s “mate” when Skylar’s next words stopped me.

“How about you spend less time worrying about Evie’s mate, and start worrying about your own.”

Lillie’s POV

As Evangeline and Jacob crashed through the door I couldn’t help but feel like this was my fault. I hastily scrambled to follow them out the doorway that had now been destroyed, and gasped at the sight in front of me. Evangeline was still in human form whilst my mate stalked towards her with an almost feral glint in his eye. I wanted to do something, to stop him somehow, but I was completely frozen, my body refused to move as I looked upon the ghastly scene.

As Jacob got closer Evangeline’s eyes turned inwards and her face contorted into one of pure fear, the look in her eyes made me wonder what she was reliving in her mind, to have the strongest werewolf known to man and wolf physically tremble in fear. I once again tried to do something but I was captivated by the look in her eyes, what on earth was she thinking about, because she most surely wasn’t afraid of Jacob.

In almost slow motion Jacob leaped at his sister, the look in his eyes said he was out for the kill, I closed my eyes unable to watch what was sure to happen. The sound of a thud and a loud, ferocious growl that wasn’t Jacob’s had my eyes snapping open. Skylar had attacked Jacob and was now comforting Evangeline and whispering into her ear as he rocked her back and forth. The sight shocked me, nowhere was the girl that I had seen yesterday, strong, fearless and frankly quite scary. Now there was only the 18-year-old girl hiding in her brother’s arms.

Her words from yesterday flew into my mind, “And he will help, trust me.” maybe she know a lot more about what was happening to me than she let on.

Maybe she really could help me.

I turned around to look for my mate, and my shoulders slumped in defeat when I couldn’t find him. It seemed that even though I had just found him, I was already losing him.

Jacob’s POV

I almost doubted that the past 2 hours had actually happened, but as I closed my eyes I could see Evie’s terrified expression and Lillie’s panicked one. First, my beautiful mate tells me that I am her second mate, after her first mate rejected her and now has the audacity to try and find her to get her back, after everything that bastard put her through. I wasn’t letting him anywhere near her, he stuffed up, she’s mine now and I have absolutely no intentions of letting her leave me, or be taken away for that matter.

Within the two days I had known her I was already head over heals, but when she had told me what her dickhead of a first mate had done to her, ridiculing and forcing her to leave her pack to “save” his reputation I couldn’t have been angrier, the fire that lit within me was ferocious and unfortunately Evie had been the one on the receiving end of my temper.

The look in her eyes as a prowled towards her will forever be seared in my brain. The absolute terror on her face as a person she loved and trusted once again attacked her; I don’t know what came over me. She’s already been through enough and the fact that we are back at her old pack would not be helping the situation, I knew she would forgive me eventually but I knew she’d never forget and that scared me.

As I continued to sulk in my room, a knock startled me from my thoughts once again and I looked up to see the frowning face of my beautiful mate. My heart sank further into my stomach as I looked at her confused and saddened expression, I opened my arms as an invitation hoping she would accept. I knew I didn’t deserve it and I wouldn’t blame her if she ran in the other direction but just as I dropped my arms down in defeat she closed the distance between us and pressed her lips to mine, her arms sliding around my neck as she molded her body to mine.  I didn’t react immediately, shock ran through my body as her lips parted from mine and she buried her head into my neck.

Her soft sobs were muffled by my chest as her cold tears travelled down her pink cheeks. I had managed to upset the two most important women in my life, realizing I would have to talk to Evie later; I tightened my arms around Lillie’s waist and whispered into her hair, for only her to hear.

“I’m sorry, I’m so sorry” my words sounding desperate even to me. “Please forgive me, I didn’t mean to, I’m sorry”. She let out a small hiccup and stepped away, looking into my tearing eyes. I Knew I didn’t deserve either of their forgiveness, but I needed it. If they both left me, I would surely cease to exist.

“I’m not the one you should be apologizing to” she whispered so softly, if it were not for my wolf hearing, I wouldn’t have caught it. But the words hit me like a punch in the gut.

“I know” I managed to reply, my voice failing me as the possibility of losing my mate after only just finding her, haunted me. I dropped my eyes from hers, not wanting for her to see the tears that threatened to spill over. But as I turned away, her soft hand pressed against my face, dragging my eyes back to hers as she gave me a watery smile. I placed my hand on top of hers and clung to it like a drowning man to a buoy.

“Thank you”

Michael POV

“What happened?” I asked quietly, not wanting to disturb the peaceful silence that had settled around us, but needing to know what happened to her. I could tell that the fight is not what had upset her, there was something else, something deeper that had left the inkling of sadness behind her eyes.

She let out a long sigh and I prepared myself for a long story.
