Chris's POV

It's been five months since Star was taken away from us, and I have never seen Violet so miserable. My wolf is constantly whining and trying to reach out and comfort Violet's wolf. I miss our daughter too, but we still have Benjamin and the rest of our family. Violet has been staying cooped up in our room, and enough is enough. I informed the omegas to stop delivering her meals to our bedroom. She needs to come out and interact with everyone once again. The way she has been is not healthy for her or anyone.

"Hey dad!" Benjamin exclaims, but I can sense the exhaustion in it as well. "Good morning, Benny. What's up?" I sit down at the dining table and he joins me after pouring himself a cup of coffee. "I was wondering if you could watch Franklin tonight? I wanted to take Sarah out for dinner at Avery's hotel."

I smile at my son before replying, "No."

His face instantly hardens and looks disappointed and shocked. Before he could say anything, I continue with speaking. "I think you should ask your mother. Babysitting Franklin might be the thing to get her out of this depressive state she's been in. If not, you know damn well that I will hang out with my little man. You and Sarah deserve to have a nice night out. I remember the baby pup phase very well. You guys can stay the night at the hotel. Don't worry about a thing." I assure Benny and he looks beyond relieved.

"Thank you so much, dad! Do you think mom is awake right now?" I nod my head and he excuses himself from the table.

Violet's POV

"I miss her so much." I whine to my wolf who also agrees. She misses our pup just as much as I do. I've cried so much, that I've ran out of tears. There's a knock on the door and I assume it's one of the omegas bringing up my breakfast as usual. When the door opens, I'm a little surprised when I don't smell the aroma of bacon and eggs. Instead, I can sense that it's Benjamin. The bed dips and I refuse to pick my head up from the pillows. I don't want him to see me like this.

"Good morning, mom." He softly greets with pain in his voice. I don't have the strength to talk at the moment, so I remain silent. "Mom." He lets out a deep sigh. "I miss Star, too." That's all it took for me to start sobbing loudly into my pillow. I feel him rub my back in a soothing matter and I hate this feeling. "Talk to pup." My wolf says in my head. I slowly turn to my side and look at my son. "It hurts so much." I admit to him. "I miss her." He pulls me into a hug and I begin to feel guilty. I've spent the last few months locked away in my room, that I've neglecting my son. I know he's grown, but this is the first time I'm seeing him in over three months. It's not fair to him or anyone else. The last time I saw him was when he brought his newborn pup in here for me to meet.

"I am so sorry, Benny!" I sincerely tell him.

"You can make it up to me by watching Franklin tonight. I want to take Sarah out later." He grins at me ans for the first time in awhile, I form a small smile.

"I would love that very much. How is my little grandson?" For the next two hours, I sit in bed and enjoy my conversation with my boy. Eventually, my stomach begins to rumble and that's our cue to head to the dining room. I bet Chris is behind the reason why nobody brought breakfast up to me.

When we reach the alpha dining room, my heart speeds up as Chris's eyes meet mine. I can see the satisfaction in his face that I'm finally out of the room. He looks so handsome, and I hadn't realized how much I miss him as well. We've been sleeping together , like, literally sleeping and cuddling, but no s*x. I haven't had the desire to because of how depressed I've been. I feel my cheeks begin to heat up as I think of the things I want to do to this man.

"Later, my love. There's others in the room and you need to eat something." I suddenly hear Chris say through our link.

He pulls out a chair for me and I take a seat while he goes and makes a plate of food for me. Benjamin takes a seat across from me and a few minutes later, Sarah joins us with Franklin. My eyes widen when I see my little grand-pup. "Oh my! Can I hold him?" I whimper out. Sarah smiles warmly at me and nods, but Chris interrupts. "After you eat." He sternly tells me. I'm quickly to gobble up my food in order to hold little Franky.

Once he's in my arms, my wolf and I feel calm and emotional. I haven't held a baby since Princess Nova. I wonder how she's doing? I have many people I need to catch up with. "He's adorable." I quietly say out loud as I stare at his precious face.

"Yes, he is!" I hear a voice I haven't heard in awhile. In walks Juliette and Ryan. I hand Franklin back to Sarah and give Juliette a hug, then Ryan. "It's so good to see you again!" Juliette happily exclaims. Ryan also agrees with her.

"Want to join us in training? Megg and Jace said we could lead today!" I love how excited they are about training the wolves. It is a big accomplishment and honor to do, since they are the first and only human couple to reside here. "I think training sounds delightful. I don't feel as strong as I once was." I admit, and Juliette claps her hands in excitement. "Yay! Let's go!"
