Chapter 10 Breaking News

This time, Ann did laugh. She had missed Lexi’s dry humor and wit terribly.

“Listen, tiger, what’s going on with you and Brad, hmm?” She asked, placing her cup down and staring intently into Anne’s eyes. Anne sighed and glanced out the window.

“News travels fast then huh?”

“I’m surprised you haven’t seen it if I’m honest,” Lexi answered as she leaned to the side and began rummaging through her bag.

“Seen what?” Anne frowned.

Lexi scrolled through her phone until she found what she was looking for and handed it to Ann.

“What the f*uc*k is that cretin doing marrying your man?” She hissed angrily.

Ann glanced down at the News bulletin that had flashed up on the screen in the entertainment news.

‘Heir to Crystal Pack no longer in running for Next Alpha King: Ditches fiance and plans to marry her sister. Click here for the full story!’

Directly underneath was a picture of Ada and Brad staring adoringly at each other at some function or other. Ann snorted and passed the phone back as Lexi folded her arms angrily.

Ann chuckled.

“Let’s eat first, Lexi, I’m starving. Let’s order and I’ll fill you in on everything.”?

As they ate, Ann explained how her chance meeting with the big bad alpha came about. She was careful to leave out the details about the curse on the Alpha and the unknown threat he faced, but she was comfortable revealing at least this much to Lexi.

She would take the secret to her grave if needed, rather than betray those she thought of as family.

When they were done Lexi sat back contemplatively and ma*s*saged her stomach as she greedily eyed the deserts on display at the counter.

“You can’t possibly be able to fit more in!” Ann exclaimed incredulously.

“Is that a challenge?” Lexi gasped with mock horror, “Because it sounds very much like a challenge. Very well! I accept.” She said, deftly answering her own question as she stood and hurried over to choose a dessert.

Ann snorted loudly as she hunted for her phone which had just started ringing incessantly in the depths of her bag. She had forgotten to turn the ringer off and, yet again, more irritated glances were being directed her way.

She glared furiously at the caller display and rejected Brad’s call as she fumbled with the volume control to switch it onto vibrate.

It began to flash for an incoming call again and without bothering to look at the caller display she answered.

“For f*uc*k sake what? I don’t want to talk to you. If you didn’t understand what I said the first time Brad, I don’t have the time nor the crayons, to waste on explaining it to you.” She hissed angrily into the phone.

A resounding silence met her furious tirade before the nervous sound of a throat clearing could be heard.

“Just so you know, this isn’t Brad, and I bet he’ll wish that he wasn’t himself either when you do finally get a hold of him.” The voice on the other end of the phone said with a dry chuckle.
