Chapter 1Tyson POV
These bloody meetings were boring, but Ryker insisted we sit through the Alpha meet every year. We still had a year before we took over Black Moon Pack so I thought it rather pointless when we didn't actually get a say in anything yet.
They weren't so bad though, my entire family was here seeing as we all come from Alpha bloodlines. My aunty Lily was here with her husband Damian from the Crescent Pack, my older sister Lana and her two mates Tate and Drake from the forest Pack were here and of course, my other sister Arial and Chase from Red River Pack were also present with my mother. Along with Black Creek Pack Alpha Jamie and his Luna and two other packs, who I couldn't for the life of me remember who the hell they are or from where. Kind of pointless when the majority of the packs were run by the family, not like the other three packs could argue, noone wants to piss off Hybrid wolf packs and they sure as hell didn't want to piss off my brother Ryker the Alpha king. A title handed down from my mother, The former Alpha Queen.
Ace nudges me with his foot under the table trying to get my attention. Looking over at him he nods toward the Luna of Black Creek Pack.
"Check out the t**s on her" he mind-links and I roll my eyes at him.
"Close your mouth, you just drooled on the table" I shoot back at him and he smirks.
"What I would do to those puppies" He says, wiggling his eyebrows at me.
"f*****g nasty, she is old enough to be your mother" I tell him.
"Got a nice rack though" he says and I sigh.
"Think they're fake?" He asks.
"I don't know, why don't you ask her mate" I tell him, turning my attention back to Ryker who was looking at maps on the round wooden conference table.
"Not possible," he says, looking at the Black Creek Alpha, he was in his fifties and thought his s**t didn't stink, couldn't stand the old fart.
"Why, what could they possibly need all that land for, they aren't even running the pack?" Alpha Jamie says before glaring at me. s**t, what did I miss?
Ryker looks at me and Ace before nodding to us. I get up walking over to him.
Black Moon Pack, the pack being handed to my brother and I next year, ran alongside Black Creek Pack, only a river stood between the two packs dividing it.
He points to the map, pointing at the open fields running along the river on our side.
"What about it?" I ask, kicking myself about not paying attention.
"I'll buy it off you"
"Not interested" I tell him, that was a large blank space we planned on turning into training grounds.
"What could you possibly want with it?" Alpha Jamie asks.
"None of you bloody business, what do you want with it? You want more land go pester him for it, I'm not giving you even an inch of f*****g space" I tell him not liking the pricks tone. Who the f**k does he think he is?
"He has enough, he is just being greedy" Damien says, sitting back in his chair and folding his arms across his chest. Alpha Jamie was not liked by many, he was arrogant and stuck in the stone ages with the way he ran his pack.
Alpha Jamie growls at Damian but soon quietens down with one look from my brother.
"Enough, he said no and that's it, it is their land, their pack. Moving on" Ryker tells him.
"They are f*****g seventeen for f**k sake and know nothing about running a pack. What could they possibly need it for, this is bullshit and no longer fair to the rest of the packs surrounding the area when your family runs over half the packs around here" he says.
His Luna grabs his arm trying to calm him and if looks could kill she would be dead ten times over. She was a timid woman, she had red hair tied in a bun and a stern face, yet the fear of her husband was evident in her eyes as she cowers from his glare. I Felt sorry for her having a husband like him, it was clear she feared him. He tugs his arm away from her and stands up, placing his hands on the desk. His dirty blonde hair falling forward over his eyes before he sweeps it away with his hand.
"Fine, you want it so bad. I'll challenge you for it" Ace tells him, also getting up from his seat. I fold my arms across my chest sitting back with a silly smirk on my face. Old man better sit down, Ace would eat him alive. The difference in size alone made Alpha Jamie look like a boy compared to my brother's large frame.
"Well don't you think you're something," Alpha spits back at him.
"You want it old man, take it" Ace says.
Ryker sits down a stupid grin on his face, "offers there Jamie, you want the land challenge him for it" Ryker tells him.
"Sit down love" his Luna tells him touching his arm, she looked petrified and he would be an i***t to challenge Ace, not only would he lose but we would take his Pack. Realising that he sits back down.
Ace also goes to sit down but the dickhead just couldn't help but run his mouth.
"f*****g hybrid mutts" he mutters under his breath. Ace growls about to attack him when Reika suddenly stands, reaching over the table and grabbing his head, slamming it onto the table. I heard the crunch of his nose before blood splatter across it. My mother Snickers in the corner of the room, mum had a different way of dealing with Alpha's when she was Queen, she could usually talk them down with reason. Reika, now the new Queen didn't share those views, personally I think my brother has rubbed off on her, she was more the brute force sort of Queen.
Alpha Jamie springs to his feet a growl escaping his lips, his Luna shrieks as blood falls on her.
"I dare you to finish that sentence, Jamie. See where it gets you" Ryker warns him before pulling Reika onto his lap before she lets Amanda have him. Jamie however doesn't back down, refusing to sit back down and Reika leans forward and I could see Ryker's grip on her tighten as she gripped the table.
"Sit down b***h or I will make you" Reika tells him, her claws slipping from her fingers and going through the desk.
"Alpha Jamie sits down" his nose flat against his face and he breaks it back into place.Reika looked a little upset like she wanted him to remain standing just so she could tear him apart, Ryker whispers something to her and she leans back and he kisses her shoulder.
"So can we wrap this s**t show up or do you other fools want to start some unnecessary s**t" I ask.
They shake their heads and I hop up glad to be out of this meeting. My mother comes over from her place in the corner following Ace and I out of the room.
"You boys excited for your seventeenth birthday tomorrow, can finally find your mates, I thought you would have last year but better late than never," she says.
"More excited about spending time with family, it's been awhile since everyone has been in one place" Ace says, wrapping his arm across her shoulders.
"Feels like yesterday that you were babies, now look at you all grown up and towering over me just like your brother" she says just as Lucy comes bounding down the stairs. She had grown so much, her green and amber eyes lighting up when she sees us, she was 12 now.
"Grandma" she squeals, rushing over and hugging her.
"Hey princess, where were you headed"
"Looking for dad, I want to go to the creek with Melena and Josey" she says.
"Dad's busy sweetie, you will have to tell them no today, maybe tomorrow after the birthday celebrations" mum tells her and she nods before heading back upstairs.
"I'll take you, go put on your swimmers" I tell her and she rushes upstairs. My mother gives me a look.
"Reika wants her home, you two always give into her"
"We will have her back before dark" I tell my mother and she sighs.
"Fine but if Reika rips your head off, I ain't helping you" she says, wandering off.
"Huh yeah right Reika will just be glad she isn't up to mischief" Ace says heading upstairs to grab our swimmers, Ryker usually went with her swimming because the girl was bottom heavy. No matter how many times we tried teaching her to swim she would just sink to the bottom like a stone.
I followed him up to our room, pushing the door open and grabbing a bag to stuff some clothes in. Lucy didn't have a wolf, her biological father made sure of that when he forced her to shift when she was 8, killing her wolf and awakening her vampire side when she too died from the shift before coming back a hybrid without a wolf.
"Here chuck these in" Ace says, tossing me his board shorts. I chuck them in the bag. Just in time for Lucy to bound in with her towel and swimmers.
"Who are you going with Ace or me?" I ask her. "Ace, your wolf is too fast" she says and I nod.
"Hold this, I need to pee first" I tell her and she grabs the backpack and I wander down the hall to pee. Flicking the toilet seat up and unzipping. Argh I think as I let loose, only I didn't hear it hitting the water, opening my eyes piss was going everywhere. Like a fountain as I try to stop midway. That bloody brat, she cling wrapped it again.
"Lucy!" I scream before hearing her giggle on the other side of the door. I grab a towel mopping up the mess I just made before washing my hands.
Opening the door, she shrieks before rushing off.
"Get back here you little brat" I yell chasing after her. She rushes down the stairs and Ace grabs her before darting off with her laughing.
"Were you in on it?" I ask him through the link while I try to find them.
"No, but it was pretty funny. We are out back" he says and I follow her scent toward the back patio. Stepping out, Lucy was giggling, hiding behind Ace and using him as a shield.
I growl at her and she growls back baring her teeth at me.
"Eyes closed Luce, Gotta shift" Ace tells her and she turns around covering her eyes with her hands while he strips off before dumping his clothes in the bag.
He shifts quickly into his black wolf which seems to be a family trait amongst the men in the family, all our wolves Black. It would be interesting to see if Rayan is black when he is older or will he be snow white like his mother.
I grab the bag. "You can open your eyes now" I tell her and she turns around Ace's wolf Atticus nudges her with his nose telling her to climb on and she does pulling on his fur to climb on his back.
"Hang on tight, I will catch up" I tell her and she nods, gripping his fur. I watch as they dart off into the trees. I strip off before feeling a hand slap my ass making me jump.
"Need some sun on that bum, bro" Damian says coming out the back door and leaning on the railing and watching his daughter Amelia who was on the swings talking to a pack wolf, she was 15 now. I shift, suddenly Damian growls, making me snap my head to Amelia who was walking off toward the forest with the boy she was talking to.
"Over my dead f*****g body is she going off with that twerp" Damian snaps before storming down the steps after his daughter. I chuckle before running off across the yard heading for the trees.
