The Alpha and His Contract Luna (Lauren) novel Chapter 132

“What?” an Alpha asks just as Sebastian questions.

“Are you sure?”

I nod my head. “More sure than anything in my life”

The fear that had encased my heart earlier doubles as the truth hits me. I felt panic encasing my bones at what this meant.

“So we were right, this is a targeted attack and it seems whoever is killing is going after the wolves that were freed from captivity” Ren says, rubbing her hands against her dress.

“Meaning Mayra’s attack wasn’t a coincidence. Whoever it is knew who he or she was going after” Darren adds through clenched teeth.

I start shaking my head at the thought. I wanted this not to be true but the proof was staring at me directly in the face. I counted about thirty different photos. At this point it would be stupid to continue lying to myself that the attacks weren’t connected at all.

I watch as Ren picks up the photos. She looks at them, probably with more focus this time.

“I don’t know why I didn’t see it before. I recognize some of them from that day” she says slowly.

Unable to keep standing, I take a seat on the coach and burry my head in my hands. Just when I thought things were falling in place, they fall apart. When am I going to catch a fucking break?

“But it doesn’t make any sense. Why would someone be going after them after everything they’ve already been through?” Ren asks echoing my exact thoughts.

It was a cluster fuck. Someone wanted us dead for some unknown reason.

“The only explanation is revenge. Someone wants them to pay. It’s in the manner that he or she kills. They make their victims suffer and then let them die a slow and painful death” An Alpha I’ve never seen before replies.

I shiver at his words. Remembering how the beast toyed with me that night. It enjoyed the chase and most importantly it enjoyed seeing me scared out of my mind.

“But that would mean that it is someone who knows them, someone who was there during their time in captivity” Darren adds.

“But that’s impossible” I reason. “All those who worked there were humans and we’ve already established that whoever this is is not human”

It was all confusing. Already I was feeling drained and my mind was hurting from having to think so much. There were so many gaps to be filled. So many loopholes that didn’t make any sense.

“She’s right…so now we’re back to square one” Ren grumbles rubbing her temples. I guess I wasn’t the only one feeling the stress of this day.

It was like we were going round in circles and it was frustrating as hell.

“We have more than we did and that’s a good starting point. Now we just have to figure out who this person is and why they’re going after these wolves. If we can figure out the why then we can figure out the who” Bash says before turning to look at me.

“As for you Mayra, I want eyes on you at all times. You’ll have two guards on you day and night, is that understood. We’re not going to risk losing you” he orders, his voice brooking no room for argument.

I sigh and nod. This just made matters more complicated. Having guards on me would mean exposing my secret. Which meant the possibility of the council locking me up once they found out that Raya was unhinged.

I know his order is for my good but I don’t know which one is worse. Having guards and then having Raya exposed and ultimately end up being locked or having no guards and ending up dead by the hands of whoever this beast is.

“Meeting adjourned” I hear Sebastian say but he sounds so far away.

I was having an internal mini panic. Being stuck between a rock and hard place isn’t the best place to be, but what choice did I have? I had Iris to think about. Her happiness and safety were my priority right now.

“Mayra…you okay?” Darren’s voice penetrates the fog.

I look up to find that all the other Alphas have left. It was just Ren, Sebastian, Darren and me left in the room. They were all looking at me in concern.

I shake my head to clear the depressing thoughts.

“Yeah I’m okay…just a little bit shocked, that’s all” I assure them.

They don’t look convinced at all.

“I promise that we won’t let anything happen to you.” Sebastian speaks, making a promise that he shouldn’t be making.

I get that they want to protect me but with how the odds are stacked up against me, I don’t think they will be able to. The last thing I want is for them to be on the radar of that wolf simply because they were looking after me. I would never forgive myself if something happened to them because of me.

“Thank you, but that’s not…” I don’t get to finish because Darren interrupts me.

“I have an idea that I think might work. It will ensure that Mayra can always reach me if she’s ever in trouble” he says seriously.

“What is it?” Ren asks curiously.

By the gleam in his eyes, I wasn’t sure whether I was going to love or hate the idea.

“I’ll mark her”
